Time: 8:34 AM EST
Full Moon 19° Taurus, in House 5
Sun 19° Scorpio, in House 11
Ascendant 11° Sagittarius

Welcome to the Beaver Moon time, its full moon in Taurus (Oshun) with Sun in Scorpio (Oya). The Beaver is called the builder within the water~earth animal kingdom. It is a creature that is family conscious and known to focus on building, fortifying and restructuring its home and environment for the protection of its family and to ensure it has sufficient resources. This lunar animal totem definitely corresponds to this moon’s Taurean – Oshun archetype being the provider of home, hearth, and happiness for all who dwell within her domain. Thus this is a solution oriented moon time with attention being directed close to home. Moon in house 5 is activated; many of us will feel a need to express ourselves in an artistic fashion.
Some people will be more carefree while others may notice their romantic side shows more. Whatever it is that our individual consciousness wants to explore at this time collectively, it will be related to House 5 activities in some form. House 5 rules income, children, self-expression, creativity, and indulgence on some level. Sun in Scorpio the archetype of Oya is still manifesting the experience of change and transformation, yet it is a very dedicated and motivated energy which will require our collective consciousness to do just that, remain motivated during this moon time spanning November 12th – December 8th.
Moon in Taurus, the archetype of Oshun and Sun in Scorpio, the archetype of Oya. This moon time also speaks of a need to create a balance within a situation of some kind. Whatever the topic is, the goal would likely be to concentrate on being focused and not running here and there. Not giving into procrastination but working consistently towards creating the joy and or happiness we’ve envisioned within our minds. This is a good time to also focus on the children, removing chaotic energy that surrounds them and replace it with the introduction of stability and more fun moments, as children are very important during this moon time. (pet the children, make them happy.)
We’ll find ourselves tapping into our creative mind and our imagination more, but also into intense feelings. This moon time is full of intense energy 19° Sun and Moon brings us to the threshold of entering and exiting simultaneously in and out of some profound situation. We’re experiencing a revolving cosmic door, what we attract enters into our lives, and what we chose to remove we can more easily discard. However, we should be aware that this type of cosmic line up can also influence our mental sphere and intuitive state of being both becoming over active if not careful. Our intuition and dreams can increase and so can our paranoia and fears.
So once again we must balance something and in this case we must balance our “openness” to extreme thoughts, energies, and emotions. If we get caught in the loop or revolving door of overt connecting, nothing will get done. Thus more energy will be exerted towards getting plans off the ground when that may not need to be the case.
FOCUS – FOCUS- FOCUS. BALANCE-BALANCE-BALANCE. ENJOY-ENJOY-ENJOY.
Another message for this moon time is material success, yes this moon time points towards many forms of success especially material success. Some people will find themselves receiving funds unexpectedly, opportunities opening up, business ventures awakening, and all this concentration of success falls within the 1st 11 days of this moon time. This is more so to happen for those who invest their time and energy wisely. Others will have problems holding onto money, giving into the desire for extravagance and spending. Again, focus and effort are required during this moon time in order to reach a reasonable level of success. Sun in 11th house, generosity, and help from others abounds but also, we are more willing to share, and gift others too. Giving and receiving can be done in balance and with great joy during this moon time.
A lot of what we encounter during this moon time will be based on what we’ve created in our minds.
The challenging side of this moon time:
Is avoiding frustration.
Avoiding creating negative financial matters.
Avoiding the creation of delays.
Placate the Ori ( your spiritual head), keep it cool and supple. Avoid hardheadedness.

FINDING YOUR SOUL STONE + CRYSTAL TOTEM

Finding Your Soul Stone + Crystal Totem / www.krista-mitchell.com

If you’ve worked with crystals for a while, you no doubt have a growing collection of different stones. Some you may work with daily, some may have spoken to you at the time you acquired them but you have yet to dive into deeply. Some are old faves, some are new and exciting.

I was speaking with a friend + fellow crystal healer the other day about the value of going back to the basics in our healing process: amethyst, rose quartz, calcites, which are like coming back to old friends after spending time with some new and intense crystals for so long.

The scope of my work with crystals is in some way limited, but also quite expansive: There are types of things that I’m not super into (geology, grids, crystal facials) in so far as my focus of study + teaching, but at the same time, I consider the healing, transformational, and trans-dimensional work I do with crystals to be limitless.

Just like each and every plant, person, and planet, a crystal has a universe hidden away inside it, waiting to be unlocked and explored. Can you imagine the possibility?! So very exciting to contemplate and pursue!

It brings me to a teaching of crystal consciousness that I received a while ago, and that pops up occasionally on my radar as I’m doing my work: Teaching people about finding and working with your soul stone.

The soul stone reminds me a little of the Arkenstone from “The Hobbit” tale: a gem that was the heart of a mountain, most treasured by the dwarves who found it.

In the crystal kingdom, for each of us, there is a soul stone. A stone that represents the heart of your life quest, purpose, or path. That resonates most deeply with your soul and spirit, and represents your higher self and greatest radiance, or potential, in this lifetime.

There is generally one soul stone per lifetime, but there are also crystal totems that can change for us based on where we are in our process, just like with animal totems in Shamanic modalities of healing.

Where Does Magic Come From?

secretsoftheserpent

Magic means the effects of the stars.  The convergence of star energies.  The stars have influences and is why magic and astrology usually go hand in hand.  The effects of influences on earth and ourselves became the basis of magical thinking.  You are a physical body and you have invisible principals operating through you.  The earth and stars are exactly the same.  They operate and pass through numeral changes.  They have energy fields that vibrate.  These energy fields are involved in the evolution of everything.  All life is nourished by energy fields. You can effect these energy fields through human consciousness or by various substances that carry the energies.  The whole Universe or Nature is a vast organism.  We can only see the outside or the surface.

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

The Druid's Garden

Black locust in bloom

Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) is a spiny, scraggly tree that is found abundantly along the US East Coast. Very little is written about this tree from a magical or mythological perspective, although certainly, anyone who works wood or practices permaculture is aware of the more tangible benefits this tree provides. In today’s post, we explore this amazing tree and start building some more specific magical knowledge to incorporate this tree into local druidic or nature-spirituality practices.

My parents’ land in Western PA, land where I grew up, consisted primarily of old potato fields.  We had two sets of tree lines where the farmers had let the trees grow; these lines were full of huge cherry and maple trees grew.  In between those tree lines as the land sloped down the mountain were open areas populated with blackberry bushes, hawthorn, and black locusts–several acres of them…

Full Crone Moon | Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony

Happy Full Crone Moon & 11/11 Gateway!

The energy has been building in intensity over this entire month leading us to this fabulous Full Moon in Taurus.

November is providing us with so many astrological and cosmic lessons!

On 11/11 this month there is what is known as a “gateway” or cosmic portal opening up. This 11/11 gateway is meant to expand consciousness, upgrade our intuition, heighten our abilities, bring about self healing and gives us access to new spiritual wisdom.

On the 11th, Mercury is in conjunction with the Sun. Mercury, our innermost planet of the solar system will pass right in front of the Sun. It will even be visible to many in North America. This event rarely happens and won’t happen again until the year 2032.

Mercury represents the mind, communication and the intellect, passing in front of the light of the Sun will bring us new awareness, answers to big questions we’ve been asking and gives us access to other new information the entire planet has been asking for. The fact that it happens on the 11th is huge!

11 is a very powerful number. In Numerology there are 3 master numbers, 11, 22, and 33. 11 represents intuition, instant karma and manifestation. There is a reason we make wishes when we see 11:11 on the clock! This number represents access to the higher realms, connecting the subconscious to the conscious and manifesting our goals and dreams into physical reality.

Full Moon in Taurus 11/11 gateway cacao ceremony Spirit de la Lune

This 11/11 gateway lining up just before the Full Moon on the 12th is a very powerful occurrence! Some say it’s the most magical day of the year. 11/11 acts as a doorway that we choose to “walk through” whenever we notice it.

Earth is currently going through a mass awakening. You might be noticing repeating numbers 1111, 222, etc. You might even notice sequential numbers like 1234. This is a sign that you are currently “walking through” these gateways, downloading new information, and being given access to new gifts, upgrades and a higher consciousness.

This clears out old programming and helps you step into a new and better version of you. Be aware, this can trigger the ego a bit… in order for you to notice what needs clearing.

This portal/gateway lasts a few days and the energy can be intense. One of the best ways to access this portal and step through the “gateway” is actually through the heart chakra, and staying in your heart.

With the New Moon in Taurus on the 12th, we wanted to do a heart chakra ceremony for this special event using the earth medicine of Cacao.

The Energies of November 2019

Good Witches Homestead

The last couple of months have brought forward some decidedly intense, transformational currents of energy for us all to negotiate.  Hopefully, you are now becoming skilled at riding the waves of change that these energies tend to promote because November’s energy flow seems to have a focus on promoting further evolutionary growth. This is a month to allow everything that you are not, to dissolve with as much ease and grace as you can manage so that you can integrate more of your true self.

The energies incoming through the 11-11 gateway will as always, contain positive high-frequency light codes that will stimulate soul alignment and greater connection with our divine self. Mercury will be retrograde and conjunct the sun in Scorpio over this period which will provide exactly the right energetic focus to help us go within and connect with what is important for us at an inner level…

What is the Devil?

secretsoftheserpent

In other posts I show you what Satan and Lucifer really are.  I have gotten some questions on what the devil really symbolizes.  This post may disturb some people.  Trigger warning here, but if it triggers you that means there is room for growth.  I can’t explain the devil without explaining evil, so this post will show you why there is so much evil in the world.  If you don’t understand evil you will always be bothered by it.  Understanding evil will help you have peace of mind.  Not understanding evil  will help create evil.

Awen, Bardic Arts, and the Ancestors

The Druid's Garden

The time between Samhain and Yule is always a time of deep reflection for me.  As a homesteader, this represents the end of the season– the first frost happened in the week I was drafting this post, making everything curl up and die. By the time late November comes around, any major outdoor projects are complete for the year. We anticipate, even embrace, the winter months when snow carpets the ground and all is frozen and still.  While in the light half of the year, I spend most of my spare time gardening, doing various permaculture projects, or just being outside in the summer. In the dark half of the year, this is when I turn to more inward-focused bardic arts, more intense practice of my magic and journeying,  and learning from books of all kinds.  So as we move into the dark half of the year, I’ll be spending…

ALLOWING FEAR TO BE YOUR TEACHER: CRYSTAL HEALING FOR THE SCORPIO NEW MOON

Allowing FEAR to be Your Teacher: Crystal Healing for the Scorpio New Moon. www.krista-mitchell.com

We entered the Scorpio new moon phase last night at 11:39pm ET, and I had trouble sleeping.

Anxiety, fears, shadow aspects coming up.

Scorpio is all about the dark places, the hidden and unseen, our innermost motivations and desires. It’s intensity, death, lust, magick, psychism, power, deep emotions, and manifestation.

Scorpio moons tend to have a powerful effect on me, but especially the new moon which occurs here in the North during what’s considered the descent – the dark time of the year – before the reemergence of the sun’s power at the winter solstice.

It’s a time for introspection and preparation – but for what? For an inevitable healing and growth period.

If we follow the wheel of the year, we’ve spent the first three quarters working towards our goals and harvests, actual or symbolic. It’s an active time of doing, achieving, failing, succeeding, and continuing on. Sometimes we stay on track, sometimes we stray. And sometimes, we discover that what we’ve been working towards isn’t quite what’s working for us or making us happy.

This time of year forces us to pause, reflect, and take a good hard look at what’s in the darker parts of ourselves. Our fears, shames, insecurities, ignored intuitions, lack of attention, are all things that are part of what make us human, and also the building blocks for what holds us back.

We like to avoid these things, and yet, if we approach them as teachers, they are enormous healing allies.

Crystals that help you to face and converse with your fears isn’t as popular a topic as crystals that help you to diminish your feelings of anxiety, or protect your energy. Let’s be real: we like to avoid what feels like sh**.

Third Moon of Autumn

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elsah – Greetings dreamers, moon lovers, artists and healers, we are now deepen our experiences as we enter the 3rd and last Moon of Autumn, starting Sunday, October 27, 2019. The moon is sitting at 4° Scorpio this month and anyone who has done this work for two years or more, understands that Scorpio moons are always very powerful.

I am listening to “Camille Saint-Saëns’ – Danse Macabre” as I am writing and letting the intuition flow into this months advice and its a wonderful symphony for the Halloween and late Autumn season. The music also expresses the whirlwinds of my rumblings down the large mountains and bumpily landing in my new home this past moon. My new home is three blocks from the shore of the powerful Mississippi River, steeped in nature, native lore and also the lingering times of the mid-1800s.
