Dandelion Divination & Tea Leaf Reading Ritual | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Tonight’s Full Moon shines bright in the expansive and optimistic sign of Sagittarius. Our days continue to grow longer and warmer here in the Northern Hemisphere as we get closer and closer to the Summer solstice happening later this week.

As the days get brighter and busier, it’s more important than ever to take the time to appreciate the sweeter things in life.

The Honey Moon is known by many names in various cultures… it’s sometimes referred to as the Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, and the Mead Moon. The one thing that each of these names has in common… sweetness!

Working with and Honoring the Sun at the Solstice

The Druid's Garden

Sacred rays of the sun Sacred rays of the sun

The sun’s rays come over the horizon, on the solstice, the most sacred of days. The solstice goes my many names, the day of high light, midsummer, Alban Hefin. Across the globe and through time, it has been celebrated since before recorded history. In the light of the sun, we have strength, warmth, growth, energy, abundance, healing, and wisdom. The sun has been shining down upon our beautiful planet has been shining for at least four billion years and we can expect it to remain unchanged for another five billion years. The sun is also enormous–it accounts for 99.86% of the mass of our solar system.  It is such an incredible thing that it’s hard to image in the scope of the sun as it compares to of human lives or human history.  You might say that the sun is one of the most…

And The Award For June’s Most Bizarre Fungus Goes To…

Greetings!

Before I share a brand new video with you, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be presenting and leading a foraging walk at the annual West Virginia Mushroom Foray.

This upcoming event will take place from July 19th through the 21st at the beautiful Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, West Virginia, and the lineup of instructors this year includes such notable mycophiles as Arleen Bessette, Walt Sturgeon, and John Plischke III.

You can learn more about the event by clicking here!

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

It’s not every day that you get to see a fungus that appears once every 17 years in your neck of the woods.  Such is the case with a fungal species that targets periodical cicadas.

Over the past few weeks, periodical cicadas have been emerging in parts of western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, and the northern panhandle of West Virginia.  Associated with the appearance of these cicadas is an incredibly fascinating fungus that destroys the genitals and alters the behaviors of these ephemeral insects.

Needless to say, this pathogenic species is highly deserving of the title “June’s Most Bizarre Fungus,” and if you’re interested in learning more about its relationship with our beloved cicadas, check out the brand new video!

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

SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON CRYSTAL RITUAL: GET UNSTUCK

Sagittarius Full Moon Crystal Ritual: Get Unstuck / www.krista-mitchell.com

 

The Sagittarius full moon on Monday, June 17th at 4:31am presents a chance for us to change, grow, and move forward in a way that is in alignment with our higher purpose and destinies. This is an especially powerful moon for anyone who feels stuck, blocked, or held down right now in their lives.

It’s inevitable on our life paths that we will experience periods where we feel the change we’ve been desiring or working towards manifesting just simply hasn’t happened — yet.

It’s also inevitable that we’ll experience situations in which we feel there’s no way out or way to change, that we’re stuck in a compromise or situation that doesn’t feel right or satisfying.

But there’s almost always a solution or a different way. Sometimes it just needs to be revealed. Sometimes it’s our beliefs about it that first must change.

This full moon offers us an opportunity to change a deeply held belief AND change our situation, because change is what life is made of, my friends, and there’s no way for us to evolve and move forward on our journeys without it.

This full moon holds a particular personal resonance for me, because after years of non-stop hard work, devotion to my healing craft and business, I have decided to take this summer to prioritize my own personal self and needs.

CRYSTALS + ELEMENTS IN ENERGY HEALING: EARTH

Crystals + Elements in Energy Healing: EARTH

Hi all!

This summer I’ve planned a special series of articles focusing on the elemental energies of crystals (earth, air, fire, water, wood, metal, storm, light) and how those energies can be applied or used to support practical, every day health + healing.

The idea came to me when I was thinking about how we use the elemental energy of some crystals in my Pro Crystal Healer program to help effect healing, like celestite or aquamarine (water), to help reduce inflammation (heat) in the system. Or the elemental energy of fire in crystals (like citrine or fire agate) to help improve digestion, and increase the healing flow of chi in a blocked or ailing part of the system.

I’m always in an energy conversation when it comes to crystals and healing, so I thought it might be interesting to delve a little more deeply into the elemental nature of crystal energy, and how we can work with that elemental energy through crystals to help support us in our wellness + healing process.

I’ll be posting different crystals + elements articles this summer, so you can check back to my blog regularly, or sign up for my newsletter to have them sent directly to your inbox! I’ll also be including .pdf downloads that you can store on your computer or devices for easy reference.

Wine Cap Mushroom Cultivation: Wood Chips, Garden Beds, Recipes, and More

The Druid's Garden

How many times have you seen your neighbors getting tree work done or had tree work done yourself? The landscape company often comes with the big wood chipper and truck and then, after cutting up the wood, hauls that beautiful pile of chips off to some unknown location. Last year, our electric company came through and was doing tree work along our driveway and road to prune and cut trees too close to the power lines. We asked them to dump the wood chips on our property, and they were happy to do so. A lot of times, companies have to pay or go far out of their way to dump wood chips, and they see them as a “waste”; they will almost always dump them for free if you ask!  But a pile of wood chips are harldy a waste–they can offer you multiple yields over a period of…

Apricot Sponge Recipe

A Hundred Years Ago

apricot sponge

Apricots are my favorite June fruit. Around here, they are only available a few weeks, and each year I eagerly look forward to their appearance at the store. I recently bought some apricots, so was thrilled to find a hundred-year-old recipe for Apricot Sponge.

Apricot Sponge is a smooth, silky dessert that is served with whipped cream.

My daughter ate some Apricot Sponge, and said, “A top-five recipe.”  In her opinion, this is one of the top five hundred-year-old recipes that I’ve served her. She thinks that it tastes like a luscious dessert that she ate at a fancy restaurant.

Here’s the recipe updated for modern cooks:

The Energies of June

Good Witches Homestead

Dear Friends,

I do hope you will be able to take a little time out to enjoy the abundant beauty that nature so generously provides for us each year during the month of June. Our garden is resplendent with so many early summer flowers and in particular a wonderful array of roses of all colors and varieties.

Just taking a moment to connect with the energies of the flowers and trees in your environment on a regular basis can provide a very balancing antidote to a world where all too often these days there seems to be a discomforting sense of volatility and insecurity.

Seek out the flowers that most speak to you and allow them to help you connect more fully with your heart and the oneness and interconnection of all life. Enjoy!

Over the last few months, we have been experiencing a roller coaster ride of energies that…

Killing the First Born Sons

secretsoftheserpent

There is so much speculation as to why an all loving god would kill the first born of all the people in the land.  Unless you are familiar with my work, none of it makes sense.  Why the hell would a god kill the first born of the cattle out in the fields?  What kind of sick god kills people and cows for pleasure?  You are about to find out why he cared about cattle and why the first born sons were killed.  First born sons have been killed many times in history and the lord ordered it to happen every time.
