Long Nights’ Full Moon 2014

This full moon is commonly known as the Long Nights full moon because it is the time of the year in which the nights are the longest. As we grow closer to the Winter solstice and the the night will once again grow shorter. During this time of darkness it is a good time to evaluate the past year and leave the dark times behind you. There is a very simple ritual that you can perform to ofcu on purification and trust of what is to come. I found it in the Witches’ Datebook 2014 and it is by James Kambos and it goes as follows:

“Cover your altar with a white cloth, representing a future shrouded in mystery. Honor the Moon by lighting one white candle. Before the candle, lay one pine branch. Meditate about this past year and what your hopes are for the next year. In an act of purification, brush yourself with the pine branch from head to toe and say:

During this, the darkest time of the year,

Long Nights Moon keep me safe and free from fear.

I trust in the future, I trust fate,

I trust in the Divine Spirit and whatever awaits.”

Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer of the celestial bodies. Chiron is having a big impact during this full moon and so it brings with it great energy that we can use to do works to release emotional and address outstanding healing issues. This full moon is in Gemini which means that generally works that are related to communication, self -expression, the way we connect to the community, Throat Chakra balancing and travel are good to do during this time. You can also focus this moon for physical healing ritual for ailments of the shoulder, arms, hands or lungs.

As for me and my works, since Gemini is influenced by Chiron I think I will focus my intentions on healing my emotional self, maybe I will do a shamanic journey to get a ritual that I can perform to better my relationship with the community I am part of and to seek healing for any emotional hurts that I have been burying deep down below that involves others within my community. Our world is changing and it is at a fragile crucial state. We need to be agents of change and we need to bring tolerance, love and compassion into our works and our communities. The better the emotional, mental and physical state we are personally in, the better we can serve and support our community.

Many blessings to you and happy magical workings!

Super New Moon, New Year, What a Way to Start the Year!

Image

This new year is very special, not only because it marks the beginning of a new revolution around the Sun but because it is also our first new moon of 2014! This moon, as well as the new moon on January 30th, are considered to be supermoons due to their proximity to Earth.

As Anne Ortelee says “Today, this morning, has one of the most powerful New Moons of the upcoming year.  Five planets in Capricorn square Uranus and Mars and oppose Jupiter.  Take time today or over the next few days to dedicate yourself and your life toward your dream. Juno enters Pisces today until March 3, pushing the partnership energy into the land of dreams and inspiration.  Focus on the dream in your heart. Juno’s trine to super Jupiter, Apollon, encourages you to think big, aim for the stars, shoot for the passion and vision. Venus quintile to Uranus encourages you NOT to worry about how.  Focus instead on the passion inspiring the dream.  Animate it, dance with it, envision it, taste it.  Sun’s conjunction to Pluto starts a new one year cycle around ego transformation and evolution. Mercury’s cooperative action with Pallas encourages you to ground the dream and energize it to make it real.” http://www.astroanne.com/

We can not squander this great opportunity the Universe has given us! We need to dream big and let it be! The Universe will  make it happen. Maybe this evening you should sit down for a few minutes and really think what it is that you desire most this year? Spiritual growth? Spiritual gifts? Is it a new house? A better job? A healthy relationship? Business and personal success?

This midnight when you ring in the new year take a moment to do a simple spell but a very powerful one at that. If you go out to a party make sure you do it as soon as you get home because the moon will go void at 6:30am. This is a great opportunity to do self improvement spells. Don’t forget to feed that special little mojo bag, charge you meditation stones and any other magical tools used to aid in bringing new beginnings, filled of positive probabilities and great potential.

If you are not partying like the rest of the world you might enjoy doing a little crafting. This is a good time to make some new herbal and oil blends and charge them with the New Moon energy. I will share with you 2 of my personal recipes that I will be charging this evening (New Year’s Eve). Like always, use whatever herbs you have at hand and make sure you keep clear the intent of the blend as you are mixing it.

Blood Full Moon Brings Balance and Sheds Light on the Unseen

There is a lot going on astrologically with this month’s full moon. However traditionally this moon is here to serve as a reminder that winter is just around the corner and that we are now in the dark half of the year. At this time the veil between the ordinary and non-ordinary worlds is at it is thinnest and so we should not let the opportunity to communicate and commune with our ancestors pass us by. This is a great time to work on divination, journey-work and psychic communications with the spirits in the non-ordinary world.

This moon is experiencing an eclipse and we have the sign of Aries in the Moon and in the Sun we have Libra. So the theme that we see across the board is balance and reexamination. We all seek balance in our lives and most of the time for us to feel successful in life we need to  have balance. So tonight is a great opportunity to do works to help bring more balance to your life in those areas that you are currently struggling with. So take sometime to think what needs more balance in your life?

During the full moon we usually take inventory of the successes we have had or the things that have come into manifestation and we give thanks and we usually now start works that pertain to ridding ourselves of that which no longer serve us. Well with the eclipse’s influence we will gain a new perspective, so that which might have been eluding us and may have been hindering our ability to succeed will come to light. So this is a good time to make course corrections and to see what issues maybe keeping us from achieving what we want and get rid of them once and for all. Thanks to the eclipse those forces that might have been in the shadows influencing us will now come to light. As the night progresses and the moon no longer is in the shadow, we will also no longer be in the shadows and will come out full of power and knowledge to help us succeed in our endeavors.

May the shadow and the bright light of this Blood Moon bring blessings to you!

What Should be My Focus On This October’s New Moon?

New Moon Blessings

What should be my focus on tonight’s New Moon? During New Moons is always a good time to go with in and take inventory ourselves. What we have done, where we are going, what do we want?

During this month’s new moon it is a time to take personal responsibilities for the things that occur and are occurring in your lives. It is a time in which we are seeing the realities of our own lives and how our own actions causes the Universe to react and others. We can see clearly where we have been our worst enemies and where we have sabotage ourselves. So for me personally I think it is a great time to look at what we don’t like and see what is the root believe that is responsible and let go of that believe that no longer serve us. The last step and most important one is to forgive ourselves and others.

So with all this information what kind of magical works will you be doing this evening?
