February 2016 New Moon

NewMoon3

This new moon on Monday February 8th is going void of course at 9:39 am MT and it will remain there until 1:32 pm MT on Tuesday. With this happening I wouldn’t recommend using the evening of Monday to set intentions but maybe take the time to meditate and go within to really figure out what your intentions are for the lunar cycle and see what things may be keeping you from being able to achieve them. Then with a clear mind and a clear path you are ready to set your intentions on Tuesday evening. Another thing to keep in mind is that the new moon will enter Pisces at 2:31 am MT on Tuesday which lends itself to do works that are related to dream-work, clairvoyance, telepathy, music and the creative arts. If you are looking to do some healing work this time is great to work on feet and the lymph glands.

On Monday night I would do a sacred bath ritual for clarity so that while I am soaking I can see very clearly my intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle. First, I would smudge the bathroom with some sage or my favorite, Palo Santo. Then I would burn a citrus smelling candle or just a white candle anointed towards me to bring me clarity and truth. I will draw my water, give it a blessing, then add the bath salts that I have created.

Clarity Bath Recipe

  • 1/2 cup Epsom Salt – it helps to clear and ground you.
  • 1/2 cup Sea Salt – it helps to purify and cleanse your aura.
  • 1/4 cup of baking soda – helps disperse the essential oils and it is good for the skin.
  • 1/4 cup of Coconut Milk (added directly to the bath) or use Coconut Milk powder and add it to the mix. It is associated with the feminine, the moon and water it brings purification, and protection. Coconut Milk powder is very fragrant and it is great for the skin.
  • 20 drops of Lemon Sweet EO – it brings clarity, cleansing and uplifting.
  • 1 tsp of Solomon’s Seal herbs – helps you with decision making.

After the bath I am in a good energetic and spiritual position to do a shamanic journey to visit with one of my spiritual allies. I can discuss with him/her my intentions and together we can discovering if there are any hidden energies that may work against me in bringing my intentions into manifestation.

On Tuesday the energy is favorable for setting those intentions. Since the energies of the evening are conducive for creative work I will probably create a sigil for said intentions and place it somewhere in my healing room or office. This evening also provide energies that will support dream-work so this is a good time to do so. This is the perfect time to do some crafting, like making a Dream-Work Oil and/or a Dream-Work medicine bag. If you like working with crystals this is a great opportunity to create a crystal grid to support you this evening in your dream-work.

Before going to bed this evening you can drink some Brigid Divination Tea and set your intention to do dream-work. Place your dream-work medicine bag under your pillow , mattress or on your night table and anoint yourself with some of the Dream-work Oil and go off to an adventure in dreamland. Don’t forget to write down all of your dreams and information you get the next morning. I hope you enjoy some of the ideas provided. If you do craft any of the suggested items feel free to comment on how it worked for you.

May’s Flower Full Moon in Scorpio (but it is Void of Course)

scorpiomoonzodiac

It has been a quite a while since I last wrote a blog about what magick works we should be doing! But I found this Full Moon special enough to warrant one. Tomorrow’s full moon starts in Scorpio and then goes void of course around 2:16pm CDT on May 14th and it arrives in Sagittarius around 12:44 am CDT on May 15th. For those who do not know what void of course means, it is the time when the moon is in transition from being in one zodiac sign into another. As we all know, it is never wise to perform important magical works during void of course and we also know that we shouldn’t make any important life or business decisions during this time. So you are asking yourself well what can I do? Void of course is a great time to do meditation, journey-work, spiritual, prayers, yoga, play, parties, psychotherapy and sleep. It is also a good time to reveal indiscretions with fewer repercussions. People will be more likely to overlook and forget it easier. If you are in a creative rut this might be a time to try once again because creativity takes unplanned directions, detours, and improvisations. So this energy might veer you in a different direction that may help you move along and away from your block.

May’s Full Moon is known as the Flower Moon or the Milk Moon because the flowers are in bloom and the cows have been moved to better pasture and they are now yielding much better quality milk. Traditionally during May’s full moon we would focus on magick that has to do with love, creativity, passion, fertility and abundance. Given the fact that the moon has been under the influence of Scorpio which is great to do magick in regards to sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets and fundamental transformations there is a lot that we can choose to focus on.

For me, I will choose to focus in doing shamanic work! This will be a great time to learn shamanic practices and implement them in your spiritual path, if you have not done so already. This full moon’s energy will lend herself to allow you to have great meaningful experiences in non-ordinary reality. This is the right time to meet with your teacher, strengthen your bond and ask for guidance. You can also decide to focus on having a conversation with your higher-self and evaluate what you have accomplished and where you would like to see yourself moving towards. Doing the scouting work so when the new moon is here you have plan ready to put into action.

This is also a good time to clear out the air (though keep in mind that there might be some miscommunication) but it is worth having the tough conversation now, as it will be forgotten easier. I have read in various places that some political figures use this time to give bad news to the community or nation as to minimize the negative impact. What ever you choose to do tomorrow night I hope you enjoy it and that it helps you to move forward in your spiritual journey, many blessings!
