Full Moon in Gemini

Dear all,
This Full Moon in Gemini — Thursday and Friday — (check the full details below) — brings the energy of increased communication and higher learning, and you can go deeper with something that you started learning last year at about this time.
At the same time, while you may clear up or revise something from the past, make sure that you present any new ideas with clarity and patience.
The need to be right may be stronger than usual and the need to teach or preach may become overbearing if you don’t practice moderation.
Due to the stressful aspects between this Moon and Mars, as well as Mercury retrograde, you need to be EXTRA careful to avoid any arguments as well as while driving Thursday and Friday.
The Moon enters Gemini an hour before midnight and reaches its peak (becomes completely Full) at 39 minutes after midnight on the 23rd EST, less than a day after Sun enters Sagittarius.
Crystals to use: Fluorite, Aquamarine, Mahogany Obsidian
The mind may go into overdrive, so if you can’t sleep, you can meditate (check out my recorded Better Sleep meditations https://crystalcosmopolitan.com/meditation/ or use that “awake time” to put on paper some practical plans.
If you need any energy sessions (Crystal Reiki, Accunect or Tesla Healing) to carry you through or recover afterwards 🙂 — you know where to find me — crystalcosmopolitan.com and universalenergywaves.com
Happy Thanksgiving!
Best,Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D.www.crystalcosmopolitan.comwww.universalenergywaves.com

Things To Do During Mercury Retrograde

By @heal_thy1

Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

secretsoftheserpent

I have had several questions about our thoughts.  If I say our brains are only receivers, where do are thoughts come from?  We all have thoughts.  Good thoughts and bad thoughts.  For the majority of us, our thoughts are very negative, fearful and anxious.  We all have thoughts that keep us from falling asleep or they wake us up in the middle of the night.  We as a human race worry.  Is this just part of being human?  Thought is an energy.  You are energy.  When it comes to energy likes attract.  Whatever your energy is, you will attract those thoughts.  You can monitor this by realizing the thoughts you are having is showing the energy you have at that moment or period of time.

The Spiritual Realms of Water

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

The area of Pomerania, the north-western part of modern Poland, is symbolically surrounded by three major rivers: the Vistula from the east, the Oder from the west, the and Noteć from the south. The northern barrier of this post-glacial area is the southern coast of Baltic Sea. One of the dominant features of this type of landscape is numerous, relatively small lakes and a predominantly longitudinally-oriented network of rivers. As drinking water reserves, as well as habitats of species utilized by the early medieval economy, they must have played an important role in the cultural landscape and religious ideas.

In the following article, we intend to take a closer look at the significance of water in pre-Christian Pomeranian beliefs of the early medieval period, i.e. from the arrival of the Slavs to the region (ca. 6th–7th century ce) to the mid-13th century (which conventionally mark the end of the early Middle Ages…

Crystal Grid for Gratitude

by Jenn Lynn from Feather Spirit Crystal Healing

Crystal Grid for Gratitude by Jenn Lyn

Making a crystal grid for gratitude is a special way to show appreciation for the blessings you have received as well as promoting a sense of love and thankfulness. While holding the intention of gratitude, you can place any crystals in the grid and even incorporate gifts from the Earth as well. Your gird can be set up in your personal sacred space or even a family room to enhance feelings of gratitude and positivity during social gatherings.

For my grid, I chose to include the following stones:

  • Green Aventurine (Heart Chakra): Develops deeper understanding and appreciation of nature; Brings positivity, new growth and opportunities; Assists with embracing change; Symbolizes luck and abundance.
  • Rose Quartz (Heart Chakra): Promotes a strong energy of love and appreciation; Opens our Heart Chakra to receive all forms of love and enables us to send that love and gratitude out into the Universe.
  • Botswana Agate (Root Chakra): Reminds us to be genuine in our lifestyle and have compassion; Brings in universal energies to promote unconditional love; Provides balance and stability; Shifts our focus to the “big picture” and allows us to appreciate what truly matters.
  • Rhodochrosite (Heart Chakra): Represents selfless love and compassion; Enhances optimism and encourages positive attitude; Aids us with recognizing the “silver lining” and being grateful for blessings in disguise.
  • Apatite (Throat Chakra): Promotes positive expressions of gratitude; Reminds us to focus on what we have in the present moment and to not be distracted by the past or the future.
  • Clear Quartz (all Chakras): Amplifies intention and energy.
  • Heart Shaped Petrified Wood (Root Chakra): Connection to the Earth; Enhances deep roots and stability; Symbolizes love and gratitude for Mother Earth and all of her blessings.

I also chose to incorporate gifts from the Earth to symbolize connection to Ancestors (tree stump grid base), potential & abundance (acorns), growth & renewal (leaves/greenery) and Enlightenment (pinecones).

Crystal Grid for Gratitude by Jenn Lynn

Take a few moments each day to sit with your gratitude grid and reflect on your blessings, big and small. Spread love and appreciation to not only the loved ones in your life, but the universal energies that connect us all.

Crystal Blessings,

What is the Shadow?

secretsoftheserpent

What is the shadow of a person?  Every person on earth has one.  I’m not talking about the dark figure you see on the ground when you walk into the sunlight.  I’m talking about our shadow selves.  The self we have hidden from everyone including ourself.  Remember as kid how you would try to out run your shadow on the ground.  Well as adults we are trying to out run our shadow selves.  As a kid we could never do it and as an adult it’s just as useless.

Sacred Tree Profile: Oak’s Medicine, Magic, Mythology, and Meanings

The Druid's Garden

A glorious oak tree in fall colors! A glorious oak tree in fall colors!

There is nothing quite as majestic as an oak, which is likely why ancient druids met in groves of them to perform their ceremonies.   As I write this, I look at my glorious black oaks, white oaks, and burr oaks in the surrounding landscape and their incredible mantle of gold, tan, crimson and oranges.  Where I live, the oaks keep the green on their leaves through most of the fall season, and begin their transition into color just before Samhain. The oaks and beeches, here, are the very last to lose their leaves–if they lose them at all.  Many of the oaks, especially the younger ones, keep their leaves all winter, dry and crackling, and only drop them before they bud out again in the spring.   Their behavior in the fall and winter months is certainly a testament to their energy and…

New Moon in Scorpio | Moonthly Energy Report — Spirit de la Lune

Good Witches Homestead

This New Moon in Scorpio is a very intense and emotional one. Many of us have been feeling the depths of this New Moon for several days now. Not only is it election time… but both the Moon and the Sun are in Scorpio right now. This means our inner world and outer world are both feeling that intensity and rawness that Scorpio can bring.

Venus is just now getting out of Scorpio, but you may still be feeling her, as Venus is still in her “Shadow Period.” Venus, the planet of love, has been retrograde in Scorpio the house of darkness and transformation since October, and won’t go direct until the 16th of November.

This will take a lot of pressure off of our relationships, as we are able to see things a bit clearer with the balancing help of Libra. Just as Venus goes direct, Mercury goes retrograde…

How to Regenerate Your Body, Mind, and Soul with the New Moon in Scorpio

Dear all,
The New Moon in Scorpio this Wednesday is one of the best astrological events we’ve had since the beginning of the year!
This New Moon in Scorpio aligns with both Neptune and Pluto in a very harmonious way at the same time when Jupiter (also still in Scorpio) connects to a powerful energetic vortex in Cancer.
This translates into a huge energetic support for those of us who are ready to deeply transform our lives — like the Phoenix — one manifestation of Scorpio energy — rising out of the ashes.
Good things are on the horizon and the more we consciously work with this energy — the stronger the manifestation will be.
So how do we do that?

These tools can help build a relationship for our mind, to our intuitive nature by paying attention to the unseen, synchronistic and dream…
