New Moon in Aries Lunar Report | Entering the Planting Moon Cycle

 

This is our first new moon of the new season, and we are all in some new and uncharted territory with the current situation going on in the world right now! Many locations are under quarantine and lockdowns right now… It is easy to feel anxious around this situation, and we are being asked to stay indoors, this is also an opportunity to go within.

Now is the perfect time to meditate and visualize the outcome we are wanting to see.

The Planting Moon cycle is a time for planting seeds both literally and metaphorically. This new moon holds potent energy, so plant some intentions that are for your greater good and for the greater good of all!

Immunity, Four Thieves Vinegar

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

There are so many wonderful cold and flu prevention remedies that have been passed down amongst herbalists for centuries. This is my personal variation of a recipe called Four Thieves Vinegar, an infusion of herbs in vinegar, that has been around as a remedy since at least since medieval times.

Four Thieves Vinegar was believed to provide protection from the plague (likely wishful thinking, though garlic and the other herbs in the preparation are antimicrobial), and has almost as many variations on its origin story as its legend.

Classically this remedy four key herbs in it – lavender, sage, mint, and rosemary or thyme. I prefer making mine without the lavender because I don’t love the taste of lavender in my salad dressing – which is how I love to use this blend – making it part of using herbs as both food and medicine.

Here’s the recipe:

A BEDTIME CRYSTAL RITUAL FOR PEACE

A Bedtime Crystal Ritual for Peace / krista-mitchell.com

It’s been my experience that sleep can be hard to come by in spring, anyway, due to the time change and cyclical shifting of the seasons.

I reckon it’s tough for even more people right now, with the fear and uncertainty many are experiencing.

And especially tough for empaths and sensitives, who feel it all.

It’s also hard for healers who feel the call to action but are required to stay at home. All that energy gets pent up and starts to feel like anxiety, which can make it hard to sleep.

The mind has trouble quieting. The adrenaline keeps pumping in reaction to the stress and fear. There’s that wired/tired feeling. And we take it all to bed with us.

Does this resonate for any of you?

This bedtime crystal ritual came to me today, and to be honest, I need it to – I find the only time I’m making for my own self-care right now is at the very start and very end of my days.

It’s just too busy in between.

But I need my rest. And we all need space for some peace and light to come in, creating moments of soul care and respite.

This ritual is simple, sweet, and loving.

I hope it is of service to you. 🙏🏻

Songs of the Soul’s Awakening

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Our new Social Distancing today is what an awakening person or one who has awakened since the 1980s with their soul breakdowns, must do naturally. Its always been that way for thousands of years, especially for Empaths (with or without there awakening). Experiencing a Spiritual Awakening (or what some call a Kundalini Rising) is when the soul is timed to wake up, sort of like how labor of a birth starts to awaken the changes. And its horrible. Those who haven’t had it, don’t know.

Not everyone goes through this and don’t confuse sickness, mental sickness or emotional sickness and stress, or the saturn returns as a spiritual awakening, its not, the awakening is much different, although the symptoms of such things will be a sign for “some” people.

Because illness can be karmic (in the context of which I am speak of), the closest…
