The full moon lunar eclipse in Leo is exact at 12:16am ET on Monday, January 21st.

I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to get to this article this week.

I’ve been in my own process of paradigm shifting: contemplating where I am authentically on my path, where I’d like to go, what I’m ready to release, and what I’m ready to embrace. It’s all required a good measure of solitude and quiet.

But I’m happy I managed to get to the page because this is a powerful lunar phase for us all, and I received a beautiful, elegant yet simple crystal ritual in the Akashic records that I wanted to be able to share with you!

First, though, to answer a question I’ve been asked before: Should you put your crystals out under a full moon lunar eclipse?

No. UNLESS you want to capture or record its energy, in which case I would recommend putting out a chosen quartz crystal.

It’s essentially like capturing this full moon lunar eclipse vibes in a bottle. You can work with the quartz whenever you’re doing healing or banishing work that corresponds with this moon’s energy (to read more on that specifically, read this article).

Collaborative and Community Created Rituals without Set Scripts

The Druid's Garden

One of the questions that many druids face, particularly if they are working in a group of any size, is how to plan a good ritual.  A ritual that is meaningful, powerful, moving, and engaging to all participants.  I’m sure anyone who has attended a druid (or most other forms of pagan gathering) remembers standing around in a giant circle watching people read from scripts. Sometimes, a scripted ritual can be a moving and meaningful experience, particularly with competent ritualists.  Sometimes, however, they are not as moving or enjoyable.

The traditional scripted ritual goes something like this: a small group of ritualists design and plan a Samhain ritual. They put countless hours into the planning, and then bring in others to assign roles, practice the ritual, set the stage, and so on. A larger group of participants then come to attend the ritual. They may be able to participate at…

Self protection. Taking a stand. Revolution.
Welcome to the 1st full moon of 2019. It is a Wolf Moon, a Super Moon, a Blood Moon and a total lunar eclipse. That means a lot is going on, under the glow of this moon. To get an idea of the identifiable energies of this
particular moon, let’s look at it’s various names. The Wolf Moon, gives honor to the wolf pack howling into the night, roaming, and looking for food. Wolf medicine speaks of a pathfinder, and a tracker. There’s a correlation between the Spirit of Leo (Lion) and the Spirit of the Wolf. They both are very attentive and loving towards their families.  The Wolf Moon is that moon that one can work with to gain deep insight, to heighten one’s instincts, and to seek or become The Sage. In Orisa, the Wolf Moon would be associated with Ososi the tracker, and Ogun the loyal hunter.
Wolf medicine teaches one to be both their unique individual self and an important member of the pack, family, or community.
This is also a Super Moon, which happens 3-5 times a year and is nearest to the earth. Super moons are known to mark earth upheavals and natural disasters as well as strongly pulling on our ocean’s tides. One way we can work with Super moon energy is by noting when they are scheduled to happen, and prepare for the unexpected, by storing food, clothing, money, documents etc. in a ready to grab bag. Another way we can work with Super Moon energy, is to perform prayers, meditations, or lunar ceremonies that drawn in the Universal ase that is available for us to ignite our personal dimming star. So when situations aren’t moving in our favor, Super moon energy gives our ceremony a burst of energy for forward expansive movement.
This January 2019 Blood Moon, or red colored moon which is also a total lunar eclipse will occur again on 2021.Is not a moon everyone likes to conduct ceremonies with. However, this is a good moon time to seek answers to ongoing questions. Moon in Leo 0° in House 9, marks a moment of  freshness, and new developments brewing within our collective consciousness. This is a curious position that wants to understand and experience as much as it can. It can focus on family members, family units, creative problem solving, and the arts. If only choosing to fast, or meditate during the blood moon time, especially while the moon is at 0° one can gain great insight and heighten their intuition.
Important Lunar Dates and Planetary Aspects
 
During this moon time the moon’s aspects are in opposition to Sun, Uranus, Mercury , and Pluto.
 
Important Dates January 30th – February 1st : Be mindful of the unexpected happening during these dates. This warning can be on a global level referring to natural disasters, violent group outbursts, or local events such as house fires and accidents. This is a volatile aspect that signals rage,fury, military action, the instability of institutions which will need the assistance from the police or militia. It can also signal wild group behavior that also requires managing by some sort of authority.

Planetary Aspects: Mars Square Saturn

 (January 21, 2019 – February 4, 2019)
Projects started are difficult to complete under this aspect without strong dedication. Under this transit or aspect one easily gives into their weaknesses. Rejection or strong criticism can be experienced which can also affect one’s self awareness and creativity.
MOON CEREMONY WORKERS BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU PRAY FOR. MAKE SURE IT IS VERY POSITIVE, AND HEALING.
Have a creative, lucrative, stable, and safe moon time.

 

Invoking the Supermoon ~ Creating Lunar Eclipse Intention Incense

c4c74fbf-ddc6-4803-96b8-86c69dc5a230

A Super Moon is what happens when the moon is closer to the earth than normal making her appear larger in the sky. This event can intensify our emotions, enhance our intuition, and can even bring about unexpected news or events.

This Supermoon is also a Lunar Eclipse! This will intensify our emotions even more while bringing us new revelations and insight. Lunar Eclipses also have the ability to bring us life altering news, so expect the unexpected with this one!

A Lunar Eclipse is when the Sun is opposite the Moon, this lets us take a look into our emotions and close relationships in a different way, with fresh eyes and new perspective. You might feel overly aware of the imbalances in your life on top of your enhanced sensitivity.The Moon is also square Uranus, which can cause moodiness, impatience and impulsive reactions.

Allow the Lunar Eclipse to help you stay objective so you can keep your mind set towards growth and progress.

How To Celebrate Winter For More Personal Empowerment

Good Witches Homestead

 As the sun reminds us, it is time to begin considering the year behind and the new one ahead. This year you might consider how winter can aid you in finding more personal empowerment.

Standing in our own personal empowerment allows us to no longer feel like the victim and begin to take full accountability for our own feelings, emotions, situations, and relationships. When we feel victimized by others actions or reactions we are actually giving our personal power away to that situation. No one gives us our emotions, instead, they come from within us based on our core beliefs, our experiences, and our expectations.

When we begin to take full responsibility for our own emotional state we have stepped into our empowerment. Personal empowerment is often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. This winter we hope you will take the time to take a personal inventory of your emotional…

Druidry for the 21st Century

The Druid's Garden

This is a challenging age, doubly so for anyone who is connected spiritually with the living earth and who cares deeply about non-human life. The Fourth National Climate Assessment, released towards the end of 2018, presents a dire picture for the future. This isn’t the only recent report from governing bodies globally–report after report continues to paint a clear picture of what humanity is doing, and what we need to do to change.  And yet, it seems to be business as usual.

The cycles of nature The cycles of nature

When I talk to druids about their thoughts about this present age, there seems to be a few ways to think about it.

First, the glass half empty approach is feeling extremely demoralized, looking at climate change reports and long-term forecasts and seeing the continued inaction on behalf of world leaders. The glass half empty approach may also have feelings that nothing we…

HOW TO MAKE GEM ELIXIRS OR CRYSTAL ESSENCES

Good Witches Homestead

Gem elixirs also called crystal essences or crystal waters, have been used by many throughout the ages. They are a convenient way to use the vibrational energies of the crystals for crystal healing, magick, and more. They are easy to make and can be stored for later use.

You can use one crystal, several, or even several different types to make a gem elixir. Using multiple types creates a synergy blend, which is useful for bringing together the vibrations of several stones as more than the sum of the parts, so to speak.

I recommend creating gem elixirs using what is called the indirect method, and I outline it below. This method is the safest for all crystal types because the elixir waters do not come in direct contact with the stones used. The direct method — where the stones are placed directly in the water — can be potentially…

The Nature of Neptune and Neptunian Dreamers

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming –  Neptune is the most elusive, dreamy and full of Illusion impact that we can experience in a lifetime. For a long time I have said “Pluto may rule Hell, but Neptune is Hell” and one would have to be saturated for a long time by the influences of this on their lives to stick with its nightmares to its transformations to its mysticism. Neptune rules self undoing, addictions, mysticism, distortions, illusions, delusions in personal and inter-personal ways.

Neptune rules the very complexity mirror work both in waking life and dream work, and because Pisces is the last water sign, it rules the Collective Mirror more appropriately. Neptune’s impact on my and other people’s lives has shown much sickness and mental sickness, distortions within visions and drug/plant usage (addiction).

When one must deal with the longest cycles of Neptune or Pluto, Uranus is fast…

Top Crystals for the New Year of 2019

By Siobhan Gouws from SGCrystalHealing

Top Crystals for New Year 2019

Today I share my top crystals for the new year of 2019, because it’s here folks! 2019 is approaching quickly!

These are by no means the only crystals you should use. My TOP crystal for anything under the sun is whatever crystal you are attracted to RIGHT NOW. These are solely the crystals that came through during meditation and how I think they’ll be helpful.

Green Tourmaline to heal the heart and overcome any challenges of the heart. Let your heart lead the way! Green Tourmaline is also known to bring abundance, creativity, success and aid with visualization.

Angel Aura Quartz to remind you that you are never alone. You are supported in ways you cannot even imagine. You ARE divine and part of this Universal picture. Don’t forget that!

Citrine because it’s time to start believing in yourself now. Light yourself up and start tending to your confidence fire.

Dalmation Jasper to keep calm, stop lashing out and reacting. Take a breath first. This is a crystal that is calming and helps dissolve negativity.

Blue Kyanite to let your words fly, but remember to maintain balance. It was Kimberlei Ann from Spiritual ReSOULutions that came time mind and something that she wrote about: “It’s about balance. Constantly speaking and spreading negativity (if that’s the ‘truth’ you are speaking) is no good for anyone. Balance out some of that by saying something nice now and again because words have some serious power.” So, speak your truth, but if you only have hurt to share continually, then grab your Dalmation Jasper instead 😉

The last thing I want to share is about Connection. For 2019, it’s time to come out of the cave and start getting out there to make connections. Start chatting, stop hiding and connect. You never know who you will meet and what love you’ll encounter.

Creative Crystal Connecting,
Siobhan
