Are You Strong Enough for the Goddess?

secretsoftheserpent

This week I have had several people come to me asking questions about religion.   They heard that I was the ‘expert’ on the subject and wanted to talk to me.  I asked, “What do you want to know?”  To which they replied, “Everything!”   What they don’t understand and what a lot of readers that come across this site don’t under stand is, ‘You must make sure you are ready!’

Full Moon in Virgo ~ Crafting Herbal Anointing Oil & A Candle Ritual

Spirit de la Lune Full Moon Ritual

 This Full Moon takes place on the 19th of February and is also a Supermoon!

This is the second Supermoon in a series of three, (we will have another supermoon in March!) but this Supermoon is also the biggest Supermoon of the year!

Pretty cool compared to February of 2018 having no full moon at all!

A Supermoon is when the moon orbits closest to the Earth, making the moon appear larger in the sky, thus amplifying the lunar energies and our emotions.

The moon is symbolic of our inner world, our intuition and our emotions, and this one is the Planting Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune deck. It’s important to take note of what you are “planting” right now!

This Supermoon in Virgo represents a very potent time for manifestation and achieving our goals… Especially with it taking place in 0º which holds total raw potential for new beginnings.

This Full Moon is adventurous and exciting holding lots of opportunities for change. Be on the lookout for good news and a sense of things coming together.

Our last New Moon post talked about answers coming and things finally falling into place… to help make that happen, we’ve put together a special ritual for this Full Moon!

We will be combining several earth elements into an intention oil and then using it to anoint an intention infused candle!

You can do this ritual on the days preparing for the full moon, or on the full moon! Preparing the oil a day ahead can be helpful, but it’s not needed!

Druidry for the 21st Century: Druidry in the Anthropocene

The Druid's Garden

Druidry is rooted in relationship and connection with the living earth: the physical landscape and all her plants and creatures, the spirits of nature, the allies of hoof and claw, fin and feather. The land and her spirits are our primary allies and energies with which we work as druids. The question I keep coming back to is this: how do I practice a nature-centered path in a time when nature–those of the hooves, fins, feathers, and claws–are going extinct and dying all around me? How do I practice druidry when everything that I hold sacred and love  is under severe threat, and when it is likely that in my lifetime, I will witness severe ecological collapse in multiple ecosystems.  How do I practice druidry with my “eyes open” to all of this, and honor nature in this great extinction event, and still say sane? How do I do this…
