Planting Moon Home Protection Spell

Planting+Moon.jpg

We are living in anxious, bizarre, and very unknown times. So as mystical sensitive empathetic people it’s important for us to keep our environment clear especially while we are all self-isolating.

During this time we really encourage you to cleanse your home not just physically but energetically. This will bring your home back into alignment with your center. It’s important to regularly clear out energy and baggage that is not yours to carry and that’s building up your space. Clear your space so you can feel more grounded and centered through all of this.

The Planting Moon is all about preparation. The seeds have been sown and now it’s time to make sure the foundations-the ground that the seeds are sewn into, are prepared and ready for renewal and new growth.

Your foundation and home is so important for your personal growth so you can thrive and you can feel abundant during this time of quarantine.

So let’s clear our homes and protect them energetically so we can feel more anchored and rooted in our center, in our truth, power, and love!

Tarta De Venus: A Not So Traditional Easter Cake — Gather Victoria

This simple almond tart is inspired by the Tarta de Santiago, a very dense, moist, cake traditionally served during Holy Week in Spain. It usually features the image of the St. James Cross dusted in powdered sugar but I went with a scallop shell instead. Venus goddess of love, beauty and fertility mythically arose from…

Great Spirit Manitou

Soul Dreamers

Compilation with additions by Phoenix the Elder I never write about Native American lore or their teachings because I have my own Slavic Indigenous traditions, but I now live near the Piasa Dragon-Bird petroglyph that was kept updated over the decades and the word Manitou seems to have been served on my plate.

Along side the great Piasa Bird-Dragon here in the Midwest, is the legend that Chief Ouatoga worked with the great spirit Manitou to have the power to kill the Piasa. The term “Manitou” was widespread at the time of early European contact in the Native Indigenous Canadian and American continent peoples.

In 1585 Thomas Harriot recorded the first glossary of an Algonquian language, Roanoke (Pamlico), he included the word Mantóac, meaning “Gods” (plural). In some Algonquian traditions, Gitche Manitou refers to “Great Spirit” or supreme being just like paganism and religious folk refer to their…

Wildcrafting Druidry: Getting Started in Your Ecosystem

The Druid's Garden

One of the strengths of AODA druidry is our emphasis on developing what Gordon Cooper calls “wildcrafted druidries“–these are druid practices that are localized to our place, rooted in our ecosystems, and designed in conjunction with the world and landscapes immediately around us. Wildcrafted druidries are in line with the recently released seven principles of AODA, principles that include rooting nature at the center of our practice, practicing nature reverence, working with cycles and seasons, and wildcrafting druidry.  But taking the first steps into wildcrafting your practice can be a bit overwhelming, and can be complicated by a number of other factors. What if you are a new druid and don’t know much about your ecosystem? What if you are a druid who is traveling a lot or is transient? What if you are a druid who just moved to a new ecosystem after establishing yourself firmly…

Beyond Here, There Are Dragons – Part One: Puzzle Pieces

Soul Dreamers

By Guest Writer, The Everyday Astrologer Ellen Bartin –  We are about two-thirds of the way into an extraordinary cycle that began in 2008 when Pluto entered the sign of Capricorn, followed by the South Node, Saturn, and Jupiter. This cycle will peak with the tour de force aspect—the U.S. Pluto Return in 2022 that will bring a national reckoning.

But the seeds of the new cycle are already being planted with Saturn entry into the sign of Aquarius on March 21, 2020. My sister asked about the pandemic, “Why didn’t any astrologers see this coming.” And I wondered the same thing. I wrote this last August, 2019 for my Jupiter-Saturn presentation at the AASTL (Astrological Association of Saint Louis):

  • Saturn-Pluto Conjunction— January 12, 2020, “We meet a limit we cannot transcend or wish away. Saturn and Pluto are intrinsically aligned with the idea of fate. This conjunction signals…

The Energies of April 2020

Good Witches Homestead

Energies of April, Super Full Moon, the Influence of Aries, Planetary Reset, Spiritual Awakening, Meditation.

The cosmic line-up for April is focussed on providing exactly the right dynamics to encourage further transformation and planetary evolution.

The driving force behind this potent energy is the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn which is exact on April 4th. This is a call for deep energy cleanse and a request for soul growth both individually and collectively. Pluto is calling for permanent change and Jupiter is providing the doorway into the expansive new possibilities that are available through that process of transformational change.

There is a potent opportunity here to move into a completely new level of soul power, one that we have not been able to embody for many lifetimes. You might feel this as a surge of soul force flowing through you, possibly moving your life into a different trajectory…

Number 23 Symbolism

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Article can be shared in its entirety with link and credit. I do not work with sun medicine wheels, I work with the Lunar Wheel within its 13 Moon’s two  Seasons: The Season of Night (Autumn/Winter) and the Season of Fire (Spring/Summer). This is a much older way of living, older than paganism and falls back into the timeless shaman or nature’s eras of earth when there was no time (pre-history ie pre his story).

Life was divided into four seasons and those four seasons were divided into the solstice and equinox yearly half moon (night) and half sun (fire) earth. I have lived by this under the 13 moon cycles for most of my life in my folk healing work, my collective work and my life as a dreamer (last level of a shaman). 

Since I live by the moon and not the sun…

Violet Springtime Fairy Vinegar: A Mineral-Rich Spring Tonic

Written by Juliet Blankespoor with Meghan Gemma
Photography by Juliet Blankespoor

When violets begin to pop up in the spring landscape, it’s our cue that a vernal promenade of mineral-rich, cleansing herbs is in full swing. Violet keeps excellent company—look for herbs like chickweed, cleavers, dandelion, plantain, and stinging nettles when violet’s heart-shaped leaves and purple blooms appear on the scene.

These nourishing spring beauties all fall into the category of tonic alterative herbs. Many herbalists call them “blood cleansers” and indeed they can help to optimize the quality of the blood by affecting cellular metabolism. They also work their magic by supporting the elimination of wastes by improving liver, kidney, digestive, and lymphatic function.

Alterative herbs can be helpful for:

  • Spring fasting and cleansing
  • Low immunity
  • Skin conditions like acne and eczema
  • Cancer prevention
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Rheumatic conditions*

Violet is one of my choice herbal alteratives as its tender young leaves are optimally delicious for infused vinegars, spring salads, and pestos. In addition to being a classic cleansing herb, violet is rich in soluble fiber and is a traditional lymphatic and respiratory remedy; helping to bolster us through the last weeks of cold-season coughs and colds. You can read more about violet’s medicinal uses here.

*Please consult with an experienced herbalist before using herbs for any of these conditions or for cleansing.

CRYSTAL HEALING TIPS FOR MOMENTS OF PANIC, FEAR, AND ANXIETY

Crystal Healing Tips for Moments of Panic, Fear, Anxiety / www.krista-mitchell.com

Hello loves!

I hope, as you read this, that you are all safe and well.

Everything hit me like a wave at the end of last week. I felt devastated, afraid, heartbroken, uncertain. Cried my eyes out. Couldn’t work for couple of days. Just went into extreme self-care mode.

I let the feelings wash through me. I allowed myself to grieve. Then I turned to my crystals, my faith, family, and spiritual practice for support.

I’m sharing this because we ALL need love and support right now. We also all need to honor how we’re feeling.

I had one of those 3am moments of what I call “electric fear”. I woke up with that fear energy coursing through my body. I put my hands on my solar plexus to try and calm myself, and then I heard my guidance say:

“It’s ok to feel the fear. It’s ok to feel what you’re feeling. But remember that you can CHOOSE how to respond.”

In that moment, I felt love and courage flow through me.

The key is to not seek to suppress what we’re feeling. We’re feeling our feelings for a reason

It’s how we respond that will help determine how we all pull through this.

I’ve put together some simple crystal suggestions plus crystal healing tips to help provide some of that support you may be needing.
