Second Moon of Spring 2019

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Hello dreamers, moon lovers, empaths, creatives, artists and healers… Our Second New Moon of Spring begins on Friday, April 5, 2019 and the Full Moon is April 19. For those who are new here, I don’t write Full Moon articles unless I feel its an actual “super moon” so there are no regular “letting go full moon intention” examples. This is because our release is based on what surfaced from our new moon intention, so be creative. (newbies, the lunar work-study instructions are here).

The second moon of any of the four season are always filled with the fullest expression which translates into our emotional fullness. The uses of Divination (tarot, astrology, cartomancy, palm readings, wisdom cards, numerology etc), are a simple guidance of insight, into “the impressions” of manifesting energies, impacting our emotional life.

Here Are 9 Wild Edible Mushrooms You Can Forage This Spring!

Greetings!

Before I introduce the new video, I want to let you know that I’ll be an instructor at the upcoming Blue Hills Forager’s Gathering along with Samuel Thayer and Melissa Price (Forager’s Harvest) and Ellen Zachos (Backyard Forager).  This event will take place the weekend of May 17-19th in Bruce, Wisconsin.

The Blue Hills Forager’s Gathering will focus on gathering and preparing meals from food we forage together during the weekend classes and walks, and people of all skill levels are welcome to attend.

If you’re interested in learning more about gathering and preparing wild edibles — all while spending time with an incredible group of nature enthusiasts! — you can find out more information here:

And now on to this week’s brand new video.

I’ll bet I’m not the only one who’s excited that spring is finally here.  There’s something about budding trees, budding plants, and budding mushrooms that brings immense pleasure to those of us very accustomed to months of cold and darkness.

To celebrate the birth of another growing season, I thought I’d film a list of 9 wild mushrooms that you can forage during the spring months.  These mushrooms are edible, they’re tasty, and they might soon be popping up in your neck of the woods.

Some of these species can be quite elusive, and if you want to learn some tips on where to find them, check out the brand new video!

In addition to fungi, spring ephemeral wildflowers are blooming!  Pictured here is a rare species that’s among the first to flower near my home, and it’s a plant I look forward to seeing every spring.  Have you seen Snow Trillium?  Check out this recent Instagram post to learn more!

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