Pretenders

secretsoftheserpent

This world has a lot of what I call Pretenders.  A Pretender imitates the beliefs, behaviors and values of what is considered socially acceptable.  They know they don’t belong in this world, but they have to pretend to be like everyone else.  To not pretend is a lonely existence.  This is the number one reason people turn away from Magic after they start, they don’t want to be lonely.  Better to be a Pretender than be lonely.  I don’t think I belong on this planet of madness either, but every one of us has a purpose and as long as you are pretending, you will never reach what you truly love.

Now’s The Time To Harvest This Great North American Superfood!

Greetings!

I’m excited to partner with Forager’s Harvest in Bruce, Wisconsin for an evening mushroom walk on Thursday, August 9th.  We’ll explore the area in search of summer mushrooms, as well as identify mushrooms that participants bring to the program.  If you’re in the Midwest this August 9th, I’d love to meet you!  More information can be found here.

Next, let’s talk about foods that are super…

When many people think of the word “superfood,” images of expensive powders, fancy juices, and exotic herbs come to mind.

When I think of the word “superfood,” images of local plants, backyard weeds, and brambly fruits come to mind.

As nature would have it, North America (and every habitable continent!) is replete with a cornucopia of superfoods manifested as wild fruits, nuts, seeds, and herbs.

The wild blueberry is one common fruit that, despite its ubiquity, is certainly a superfood in every sense of the word.  Tasty, abundant, and brimming with health-promoting compounds, its value to both humans and wildlife cannot be overstated.

I recently spent some time in the company of a few wild blueberry shrubs and decided to document the experience.  If you’re interested in learning why I recommend the wild blueberry as a regular component of the human diet (and garden!), check out the brand new video!

Have you been finding any choice edible mushrooms lately?  Here’s a list of 8 edible fungi you’re likely to encounter during the warmest weeks of the year… especially after a good rainfall!

Thanks for reading and watching, and as always, thank you for your support!

Astrorisa Moon Message: Passions are ignited July 19, 2018

HELLO MOON FOLLOWERS & SUBSCRIBERS!
Blood Moon ~ Lunar Eclipse – Full Moon -Time!

Transit explanation in video
Astrorisamoon Forecaster:July 27, 2018 Aquarius Full Moon
Astrorisa Moon Forecaster:
July 27, 2018 Aquarius Full Moon
This blood lunar eclipse moon time will last 1 hour, 43 minutes, and 16 minutes.  This indicates its effects will last for a few years to come. We and the world will be in a sort of fix it, or clean up mode for awhile. This is another reason why we must not add to the junk pile, by giving into the aggressive warrior energies that ride into this eclipsed moon season. Remain calm, my people. 
 
From the Astrorisa Moon Forecast Reading…”How can we work through this moon time to maximize our ire (blessings)?
During these 27 days, some will try to force their movement forward, not adhering to patience or understanding. Prepare, plan, and practice instead of giving into frustration or making self-sabotaging moves. In planning, and practicing for success, when opportunities come, and it’ll likely come swiftly during this lunar time, we can be ready and more successful in our pursuits…”
Feel free to share this video with friends and loved ones.
Perform “cooling and cutting the heat energy” work for yourself and family. Keep the home cool by burning sage, palo santo, and lavender herbs. Avoid reacting and responding to aggressive and antagonistic people. Avoid places where these energies and individuals are likely to assemble. Avoid wearing red, or eating spicy foods during this blood moon season. Connect with these energies not to ignite aggression but to ignite a passion to get something completed, to look Truth in its face, to invigorate your being, to dive into Joy.
(Okana Etawa)
See you all again when the moon is full!

Sango ~ Aquarius Full Moon
 
This MINI moon forecast reading is for 27 days
 
Friday, July 27 2018 until Thursday, August 23 2018
 
This is a heated moon time, much passion, and irrational behavior is in the air. This is a time to be cool natured in thoughts and actions to subdue the heat that comes with this lunar time frame. Many people can feel unfairly treated by others actions and words, deep contemplation before addressing a situation will be of a great benefit to us all. We will not do a specific moon ceremony for this date, too much heat with cancellation energy. Instead let us join together to participate in the gratitude ceremony  which we’ve previously performed, and include in our ceremony the thanking of our own Ori, inner head for working so hard to keep us on our personal destiny and on track.

TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE (video)
 

With Mercury retrograde and  Mars retrograde during a total lunar eclipse, we are directed to deal more with our own issues, and concerns than getting too involved with others.
——————————
 

 
During this moon time
A key factor for many people at this time will be family issues and or concerns, and the ability to navigate around and through those issues without being sucked into nonsense. An issue, as well as a disappointment or a challenging outbreak with people’s health, i.e. health scare, or health care can come up during this moon time…
——————————
 
Aquarius Full Moon Time Transits
 
Moon conjunct Mars Я~ encourages bravery, passion, and a fighting spirit. Emotions can be out of control, and for some emotional rage can peak.
Sun opposite Mars Я ~ encourages an attitude of self-righteousness and events that require one to take a defensive stance.
Moon square Uranus~ we find erratic, impulsive, thoughts and behaviors with little patience, not included. This is not a good transit to commit to a new relationship, due to rapid, irrational changes occurring in the person’s environment and attitude.
Mars Я square Uranus ~ encourages the invention and creation of something, and off the cuff love affairs, eloping, and thoughtless contractual agreements. This transit also brings a cunningness of nature to the forefront, as well as a unique worldview. On the deep mysterious side of this transit, all types of dishonorable acts, even theft and corruption can occur.
Mercury Я in Leo ~ represents one who has the ability to be a fiery communicator, to speak their mind, and not hold back. With Mercury Я in Leo, one can become irritable, and stressed out, and will have a hard time escaping situations that bring out misunderstandings or disharmony. Yet it can also bring about a lucky streak of events.

Venus trine Pluto ~ deep erotic passion, obsession, lust, and desire are intensified under this transit. Whatever one is interested in which brings them joy, they’ll find themselves giving their all to it with great satisfaction.

Easy Candle Protection Spell

The Witch & Walnut

easy candle protection spellEasy Protection Spell work for yourself or someone else. This is a very common request and it’s easy to do on your own. You can pair it up with the Evil Eye Spell that I wrote about here. You can also include simple cleansing baths as well… you can read about that here…

One thing I want to make abundantly clear is that you can never completely eradicate negativity. You can also never fully protect yourself or someone else from all possible harm. If anyone has told you that, its total bullshit. That is not how Mother Nature works.

Ingredients:

  1. One white candle or honey bee candle
  2. Dried bay leaves – equal parts
  3. Dried rosemary – equal parts
  4. Black salt – a few good sprinkles
  5. John’s Wort OR Lavender – just a little
  6. Bowl large enough to hold the entire candle
  7. You choice of blessing oil, you can make…

The Darkest Astrology Asteroids – Power and Struggle, Sorrow and Misery and our Karmic Purification through Pain

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Doing consultations in Astrology along side Asteroids work for the last thirty years, has shown me many karmic life stories and how they play out. Where our weaknesses are and how we begin to rebuild strength and learn to let go in order to heal our issues and destruction. I have found Asteroids very accurate as they add layers and depth of people, their story and the subtle struggles that we all have to go through.

ELEMENTS
When we work with any ancient esoteric, mythological, oracular, shamanic, folk lore or Jungian teachings, we break down the self and the world into our elemental self: Earth, Air, Water, Fire (and the 5th element metal in Chinese tradition, which is ether). The four essential ingredients are the four different states of matter and energy: 

Earth as solid and our physical life; Water as liquid and…

BLM is moving full steam ahead to send wild horses to Guyana

Straight from the Horse's Heart

This is how America’s wild horses will likely be treated in Guyana.  Do you think Guyana has sanctuaries where the wild horses will live after they’re used as work animals?  Or, do you think they’ll end up being slaughtered?  (As if this weren’t bad enough, the BLM will be sending them to an area with jaguars.)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

secretsoftheserpent

Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have as much symbolism as The Force Awakens, but the symbolism it has goes much deeper.  It is showing the transaction that is happening in our world right now.  The dying off of the old patriarch ways and the beginning of the new sacred feminine.   If you have not seen the movie I am giving you a spoiler alert.  I will show what happens, so if you don’t want to know the ending, see the movie first.
