Entering the Harvest Moon Cycle with a New Moon in Leo | Moonthly Lunar Report

Happy new moon in Leo! The days are getting shorter and the nights are slowly becoming longer as we head into the last months of summer.

We are entering the Harvest Moon cycle. Summer is slowly coming to and end, and many of us are feeling change stirring in our bones. This new moon holds a lot of solar energy. Even though it will be a dark new moon, it will still cause much to “light up” or be revealed within ourselves and our personal lives.

This new moon can cause some bursts of energy to take place. Right now, Mars is square Saturn and Pluto, and trine the sun and the moon. This can cause some sensitivity to peak. Some might be feeling very energetic and motivated while others might feel impatient or quick to anger. Remember to check in with yourself and your emotions often so as to not act too rash right now.

As this month progresses, the Harvest Moon cycle offers you many ways to embrace your goals and reap the bounties of your hard work.

Each new moon, using our Spirit de la Lune Decks and Tune to the Moon Planners we put together a Moonthly Lunar Report to help us navigate the cycle ahead.

Welcoming Abundance for the Full Corn Moon | Prosperity Jar Spell

Happy Full Corn Moon!

Full Corn Moon Prosperity Candle Spell | Spirit de la Lune

August 3rd marks the Full Corn Moon, a time representing the first harvest, and welcoming in the abundance in your life. We also just celebrated Lughnasadh on the 1st of August. Lughnasadh is the sabbat or holiday that marks the first of the harvest season.

Summer is almost over and all the hard work that has been put in towards the beginning of the year is now about to pay off as we reap the rewards of our efforts.

Lions Gate Portal | Spirit de la Lune

We are also in the beginning of the Lions Gate Portal. The portal happens every August 8th when the Sun, Sirius and Earth align. Sirius is the 2nd brightest star and is also known as our “Spiritual Sun.”

During the portal there is an increase in feminine and intuitive energy. Many report feeling extra sensitive to energies, or extra aware of synchronicities or spiritual downloads.

The Lions Gate Portal is an important time for you to access your heart chakra and make sure you are in alignment with your path.

During this full moon you might feel especially tuned in and aware of the spiritual downloads that might be happening right now. After several intense full moons, eclipses and retrogrades, this full moon will feel like a breath of fresh air!

The Corn Moon wants us to slow down and enjoy the fruits of our labors. The period of abundance and harvest doesn’t last forever, so it’s important to stop and enjoy it!

BECOMING YOUR DREAM: A LEO MOON CRYSTAL RITUAL

Blessed new moon 🌚

This is an interesting one, because astrologically-speaking, this new moon went into Cancer a second time before going void of course and changing into Leo at 4:16pm ET today (where it will remain there until it goes void of course tomorrow at 8:27pm ET).

I got to the game late, only attuning to the moon through the crystal consciousness at about 4:50pm, so while everyone else is posting about the Cancer new moon, here I am writing about the Leo moon!

I’ve decided to go with it, because honestly, I think many of us (myself included) could do with a little Leo moon juice + some joyfully mad-passionate crystals right now…

MY LITTLE LEO MOON CRYSTAL RITUAL

When I tuned in to this new moon energy through the crystal consciousness, this question came through to me:

“What if you could be the biggest, boldest version of yourself?

This world is demanding the best of us – what does that mean to you?

The radiance of Leo is the enlightened leader. The creator. The warrior. The golden-crowned heart.

What does that inspire inside you?

What dreams or visions does that stir?”

Here’s something I have learned from my experience: Anything you can envision or desire, that feels in alignment with your heart and spirit, already exists as a spark in your soul.

This means that the energetic alignment, the blueprint that can manifest, co-create, or attract it into being only needs your energy to fuel it.Your energy is your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions, all focused in the direction of your vision.

What can halt us is believing in lack: not enough courage, or resources, or inspiration, or worth to see it through.

Here are the crystals, all very Leonine in nature, that are speaking up for you right now in favor of your dream:

Spirit de la Lune Moonthly Lunar Report New Moon in Cancer Corn Moon Cycle

Happy New Moon in Cancer!

This new moon is known as a “Double New Moon” because it is the second new moon in a row in Cancer. This means that you might need to revisit or rethink your intentions from last month. Look at this new moon as a second chance when it comes to reaching for your goals. You might find some aspects of your intentions or goals from last month need reviewing or rethinking before they can really take off.

This new moon in Cancer also happens to be opposite Saturn, which can mean many will be faced with restriction or feeling overburdened. Remember that it’s just a phase and whatever challenges you might be facing right now will not last forever.

The moon turns new on July 20th in her home sign of Cancer. When the moon is in Cancer, you might feel called towards tending and nurturing your own home, family or cultivating a sense of home wherever you are.

3 magical ways to nurture yourself during a retrograde & Eclipse Season

3 ways to nurture yourself during a retrograde & Eclipse Season

This is our final eclipse of this eclipse season and this one might actually be visible for many on the northern hemisphere!

This is a penumbral lunar eclipse which happens when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned, but not perfectly. This means that the Earth blocks some of the sun’s light from reaching the moon and covers all or part of the moon with it’s shadow.

The lunar eclipse will be visible for many of us this time if the sky is clear. For others it might be eclipsing while the moon is rising or setting.

Here is a link with the timing and a map of the eclipse.

When it comes to an eclipse… even if you can’t see the event you will definitely feel it, especially when our intuition and emotions are in tune with the moon!

Remember that eclipses shake the current energy up so that we can see what isn’t working, and release it or heal it so we are free to expand and move forward. This gives you the power to integrate the lessons that have been coming up over the last month or two.

This full moon eclipse is also in Capricorn. Capricorn is very goal oriented and helps us stick to our plan and intentions with it’s gentle nurturing hand. With careful planning and diligent daily effort, this week can help you make the changes you’ve been wanting to make for a long time now.

ASCENDING SOUL: CRYSTAL TALISMAN MAGIC FOR THE FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN

Ascending Soul: Crystal Talisman Magic for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn / www.krista-mitchell.com

We have yet another full moon lunar eclipse, this one in Capricorn, happening at 12:44am Sunday July 5th.

The download I received continues to guide us through the healing cycle and archetypal patterns initiated by the recent new moon solar eclipse.

I opened to channel and this is what first came through:

“Cycles and patterns, cycles and patterns.

The world goes round and round.

Moon in an earth sign, sun in a water sign,

The earth eclipses the water.

From fire and water, to earth and water,

Building, creating steady ground.

This is the earth forming anew under our feet.”

The moon will be in Capricorn, an earth sign ruled by the planet Saturn, relating to building and structure and toil and triumph. Saturn is the structurer, Father Time, the sacred masculine.

The sun is in Cancer, a water sign ruled by the moon, relating to the home, family nurturing, the emotions, intuition, imagination, and the sacred feminine.

Capricorn builds the world. Cancer builds a world of its own, within.

The sacred feminine is the energy, the flow.

The sacred masculine forms the metaphysical structure or vessel.

It is a time of creating.

This will be a very magical eclipse, one that can initiate us into a new way of being – individually, and collectively.

Don’t miss out if this calls to you and speaks to your soul, because it means your time of becoming is now.

The Energies of June 2020

Good Witches Homestead

The energies of June have a flow and depth to them that will take us deep inside ourselves to reflect, integrate and realign. This is powerful, highly transformational energy containing huge potential for positive change and spiritual upliftment.

By the third week in June we will have a total of six retrograde planets, including Mercury, all encouraging us to journey within from a variety of perspectives.  There are also threads in the energy stream that could provoke some uncomfortable emotional intensity, especially around any unresolved anger you might have.

This means that it will be particularly important to stay grounded and connected with yourself this month so that any emotional volatility can be recognized and dissipated with conscious intent.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

We have a full moon lunar eclipse on June 5th with the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius. This will be a particularly potent eclipse…

CRYSTAL HEALING RITUAL FOR THE SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON ECLIPSE

Crystal Ritual for the Sagittarius Full Moon Solar Eclipse with Blue Kyanite: Deep Listening, Inner Activation, Truth, Understanding / www.krista-mitchell.com

Many people might expect awakening and evolution to be light-filled, radiant, even peaceful, but awakening is an act of creation and becoming, and the creative forces of this world are often also required to be those of destruction, unravelling, dismantling, or un-making (ie: fire, ice, death, water, the shedding of skins) in order to create.

Growth, healing, and change are often painful or creative/destructive/creative processes because they force us to let go of things: how (and with what) we identify, our beliefs, comfort zones, old wounds that have become companions, our gremlins, parts of our past, dreams of the future.

(Important note: I am talking about creative forces of destruction in nature and in the nature of healing, NOT destruction purely for the sake of causing pain, harm, or chaos. The former is in service to the cycle of life and the healing process, the latter I see in service to the dark spirits of this world).

These processes bring challenges because they trigger what needs to be seen, heard, faced, accepted, healed, resolved, and reintegrated.

In essence, we cannot evolve without facing our inner shadows. There is no awakening, growth, or positive change without facing the shadow.

It’s never easy or comfortable, or pretty. It’s badass territory, where angels fear to tread. And this is why so many people choose not to go there, choose complacency, apathy, even silence.

I had a teacher once who said “Tyranny reigns over silence.” The power of that statement has never left me. And I had another one who said “Sometimes you have to go to war.” That one’s never left me, either.

There’s great turmoil in the world right now – uprising, revolution, demands for justice, and they’re happening because this is part of the evolution. We can’t be awake while still being asleep to what’s happening around us, to social injustice, to systemic racism.

We also can’t be awake if we’re asleep to our own shadow selves.

I’ve been in deep listening this week, and I’ve also been unpacking and sorting through unconscious bias and conditioning in my own shadow. As a healer, and human, my inner work and outer work never ends. There’s always another layer of the onion, there’s always another shadow aspect to work through. And conditioning can run deep – through generations and lifetimes of ancestral and spiritual DNA, as well as what we’ve experienced in our own time.

This full moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius (exact on 6/5/20 at 3:12pm ET), while the sun remains in Gemini, is an opportunity for us to look within, to learn, to grow, and to face our inner duality.

Healing happens in the space between light and dark. Expansion of consciousness happens in the embrace of light and dark.

It’s important to sit with that for a bit.

Honey Moon Eclipse Candle and Fire Ritual

Honey Moon Eclipse Candle and Fire Ritual

This Full Moon is known as the Honey Moon, the Strawberry Moon and the Rose Moon, but you might find very little is “sweet” about this Full Moon! We have been experiencing a lot of tension all week as many have watched or attended the protests and riots going on all over the country.

This is a Lunar Eclipse and it squares Mars which can create some tension while bringing out anger or causing emotional pain to surface.

This Full Moon is also squaring Neptune, the planet of illusion, causing a lot of people to feel vulnerable towards deception and confusion on how to act. This Full Moon will continue to open our eyes towards the injustices and deceptions going on in the world.

Pressures have been building throughout the year. 2020 is a very remarkable year and this full moon is stirring up some big changes.

This Eclipse takes place in the sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is usually an optimistic and sunny sign, but when squared with Mars and Neptune you might be feeling that emotional tension, a stir towards action, but frustrated that there is little you can do right now.
