This New Moon in Leo is also a Black SuperMoon!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

A black moon is similar to a blue moon… and like the blue moon, the definitions can get a little confusing. A black moon is typically seen as the fourth new moon in a season, (normally there are three) or when there are two new moons in one month, like what is happening this month!

This New Moon is also a Super Moon! This means that the moon is closer to the Earth than normal and the lunar effects on the water, tides and our emotions are amplified. Just because we can’t see her, doesn’t mean we won’t be feeling the effects of the supermoon.

Depending on your location and timezone, this New Moon could fall on August 1st for you, but it still holds the same energy of a Black New Moon, so don’t feel like you missed it.

Two New Moons in one month happens roughly every 3 years or so. They help us shift and breath through barriers that were holding us back. They offer us ability to use our new perspective to move forward. Almost like acting as a second chance for us to get up and claim our new path after such an intense month…

We will all be feeling a breath of fresh air after this New Moon!

This New Moon marks the end of the Summer Eclipse season, helping us to integrate the major karmic lessons of the month prior. This last month presented us with many opportunities to find lessons through the chaos, but thankfully much of that intense energy will settle as Mercury goes direct shortly after the New Moon.

We are also celebrating the Sabbat of Lammas around this time! This is the celebration of the first harvest and marks the another turn in the Wheel of the year.

In the second half of this month, Mars, Venus, the Sun and Mercury all enter Virgo. This will help us see things a bit more clearly in many areas of our lives.The shifts this month will help clear up some of that chaotic and dark energy that was stirred up in July. We will be able to move forward and claim our true power with clear intent.

In many ways, this New Moon will be helpling the dust settle around us so that we can step forward and fully integrate the lessons that came up during this Eclipse season. The cycle ahead looks to be a bit smoother than last months, but still holds potential to deliver the unexpected! One a month, using our planners and our decks, we look to the stars and moon phases to put together the Moonthly energy report!

3rd Moon of Summer 2019

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Greetings Moon Lovers, Healers, Spirit Seekers! We enter our third and last moon of summer on Wed, July 31, 2019 with the Moon and Sun in Leo, conjunct at 8 degrees. This moon ends the six moon Season of Fire, and is also referred to as the Black Moon (third moons of any season always are).

Was your last moon’s cycle strong enough for you, did you work your intention out? It was very powerful for me, I would say it was one of the very few, most powerful Cancer Moons for me since I started doing lunar healing work a few decades ago.  For the newbies, start here with the Lunar Workstudy directions.

The elemental energy shifts from Water to Fire and Mercury also goes direct. This is our full peak of abundance and growth before the Autumn’s Harvest begins. Fire brings us…

Inner Work

secretsoftheserpent

We think that we are way more advanced than the ancient civilizations from long ago.  Just because we have technology we feel we are smarter than they were.  We don’t know anything compared to what the ancients from long ago knew.  The ancients knew about creation.  About our capacity to bring into being what was not there before.  Our roles as co-creators of the universe.  I call them Witches and Wizards, but it is anyone who has done the inner work and returned.

Best Herbal Iced Teas for Summer

Good Witches Homestead

PRO TIPS FOR MAKING ICED TEA:

  • Brew your iced tea a little stronger than you would if you were going to enjoy it hot since the ice will water down the tea infusion and its flavor.
  • Some heat is required for the initial brewing, and this can be done either on the stovetop or as a sun brewed tea. Sun teas take more time but less work to make, requiring three to five hours in direct sunlight to properly infuse.
  • Once your tea has brewed and cooled, store in the fridge for optimal shelf life and consume within a week or less.

Iced tea is one of the joys of summer! Get ready for those hot days with our guide to the best teas to serve iced.

Cicada Totem

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain– Cicadas are very unique, as they live in retreat and underground for most of their life. They are our longest living insects on earth which means that they are about the longest cycles in your life. Insect totems in general, are about the smaller, more intimate nature of the self and its reflective nature, the  symbolism of the structure (since they are the ones) who keep the earth growing, transforming, decaying and rebirthing. Without them, life would cease to exist.

They have been around for millions of years and are one of the fabrics of life itself on earth. This makes them a symbol of longevity, time, cycles coinciding with nature and the seasons of life. Transferring this to us, it means our cycles of life, our seasons and our nature. Life, death and rebirth become their main association and are highly personal.

Lately I…

Grosbeak Totem

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – I found a Black Headed Grosbeak Feather today after a month of great changes and it is a very welcoming sign today. These bird’s feathers are black and white on their wing and because they are both opposing colors they represent both our moon internal and sun external. 

Grosbeaks represent as a symbol, both our shadow and our light with the fiery passion (red and orange colors) and the serene love of family (blue grosbeaks). Both the Rose, Eastern Blue and Black-headed Grosbeak are medium in sized and seed-eating birds. They are in the same family as the northern Red Cardinal (family of the cardinalidae).

secretsoftheserpent

Ever get stuck in traffic or have a late flight that gets you upset?  How often do you get upset in a day?  People get upset over little things all day long.  The internet does not work, wrong order of food, having to wait in line for something, someone is talking bad about us, etc.  Today, especially in the western world, we act like a bunch of spoiled little royal brats.  Something small goes bad and it ruins our whole day.  Here is another little secret, life has endless things to piss you off.
