Solar Eclipse in Gemini Lunar Report | Entering the Blessing Moon

The first solar eclipse of the year takes place on the 10th of June in the sign of Gemini. A solar eclipse is an extra powerful new moon because the moon crosses in front of the sun, darkening it’s light. This solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, so not all of the sun will be darkened. Instead we will see a ring of light around the sun.

Solar energy represents the masculine, which is perfectly aligned and supporting the lunar feminine energy. The moon is in between the earth and sun in an exact alignment for a portal to open.

A solar eclipse gives us an important opportunity for a major rebirth. Solar eclipses impact the next 6 months, opening up opportunities to help us accelerate our progress. There are many new possibilities and timelines ahead. You are being asked to make conscious decisions to align to and step into the path that you truly desire.

A solar eclipse opens a portal and creates a threshold for you to cross.

You might feel yourself shifting in major ways this month. Embrace the new you and allow the old you to stay in the past. Remember that it might take some time for things to manifest into physical form. Continue to do the work, trust your intuition and allow the new frequencies to lift you up.

5 Ways to Clear Cords During this Eclipse Season

5 ways to clear karmic ties During this Lunar Eclipse

Happy Lunar Eclipse & Honey Moon!

Things are getting a bit intense here as Saturn went retrograde on the 23rd, we enter the Eclipse Season with a super moon and experience Mercury’s retrograde on the 30th.

Saturn, the planet of karma and lessons is retrograde for the next 5 months in the sign of Aquarius. This is a time of karmic rebalancing. What you do during this time can project you forward in many of your goals, but you will need to have the self discipline to follow through. The lessons that come during this time are difficult, but the payoff will be worth it!

Mercury’s retrograde begins on the 30th of May. Mercury retrogrades usually have to do with miscommunications, technological issues, and delays. This one is square Neptune which adds another sense of illusion into the mix. This might make it hard to trust what others say. This could also be a time where propaganda, conspiracy theories or frauds are brought to the surface.

Energies of May, New Moon, Full Moon Eclipse, the Influence of Taurus, Negotiating Ongoing Change

Good Witches Homestead

The month of May in the northern hemisphere is traditionally associated with the power of the feminine goddess and the beginning of summer, both of which are celebrated at the Celtic festival of Beltane on May 1st each year.

This year May has got off to a somewhat cold and windy start with weather rather more reminiscent of early March than anything approaching summer. Despite this our garden and the countryside around us is resplendent with blossom and new vibrant green growth. Some warm sunshine would now be most welcome so that we can properly start in on the important summer job of mother tincture making.

The Energies of May

May promises to be a powerful and eventful month with a volatile energy flow that will highlight the themes of freedom and transformation.

Events are likely to be fast moving and possibly unexpected in nature so it will be important…

May 2021 Astrological Influences & Ritual Recommendations

Good Witches Homestead

We welcome May with the Gaelic celebration of Beltane, which marks the beginning of Mother Earth entering a new cycle of growth, fertility, and abundance. Although I do not practice or observe any Pagan or Wiccan/New Age holidays or rites, I do honor this blessed day by creating an abundant ritual altar of candles and flowers.    May 3rd, 2021: Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius will bring a strong desire for solitude. Sensitives and those developing their third eye will feel overloaded with psychic messages. Anxiety often heightens during this time. Excellent time to physically and spiritually cleanse the home. The combination of Agrimony Powder and Wormwood Powder illuminates and cleanses all surroundings. This nearly smokeless method of cleansing will be very satisfying under the influences of this Last Quarter Moon. More information and instructions can be found on the Smokeless “Smudge” Kit page.   If

New Moon in Aries | Entering The Flower Moon Cycle

New Moon in Aries | Entering The Flower Moon Cycle | Spirit de la Lune

Happy New Moon in Aries!

This is our first New Moon of the spring season. The Aries energy offers us a chance to make a brave new start. To some, this might feel like a second chance.

This new moon is also in the middle of a Mars trine with Jupiter which brings in opportunities for abundance, good fortune, and positive energy.

We witness the Flower Moon during this cycle, and throughout the month of April we will feel more of the grounding Taurus energy take over. Though, the energy amps up a bit as we experience our first retrograde since February! This may cause many of us to undergo what feels like a transformation or rebirth.

Each new moon, using our planners and decks we put together the Moonthly Lunar Report to help us navigate the new moon cycle ahead.

A new moon in Aries ignites our imaginations and inspires us to be bold and daring with our intentions, giving us the energy needed to act on our goals.

Set an intention that challenges you to rise up and to grow and watch how much you truly do grow and expand this moon cycle! The new moon week is all about new beginnings and really visualizing new possibilities and opportunities that are available.

On the 13th the Sun sextiles Mars, who is the ruler of Aries, so this transit can really help illuminate your dreams and intentions and bring them into focus! This gives you a boost in your confidence, self esteem and courage.

This new moon is also in the middle of a Mars trine with Jupiter which brings positive energy, abundance and good fortune with it. This can also help you break free from the rut you may have been feeling while helping you make clear intentions you know you can follow through on.

An Enchantment Spell for this Full Planting Moon

Spirit de la lune full planting moon

This Full Planting Moon is the first of 4 super moons in a row this year. This is also the first full moon of the astrological new year.

The energy has been intense leading up to this full moon. Establishing order, healing of old wounds and trying to maintain and establish harmony might be some major themes for you right now.

There are some powerful lessons with this moon. It is opposite Venus, trine Saturn and opposite Chiron. The Moon will also make a perfect triangle configuration to both Saturn and Mars, known as a Grand Trine.

This Full Moon is opposite Venus which can increase your need for love and affection, helping us connect to others on deeper levels. Be careful that with this vulnerability you don’t give into things like jealousy or obsession or codependency.

The Moon is trine Saturn, which gives us the patience, inner strength and wisdom to handle any of the obstacles that might come with the intense energies of this full moon.

Chiron, the wounded healer is conjunct the Sun and Venus, and opposite the moon right now too, so there are some unhealed wounds that might be making themselves known to you right now. These might come in the form of new experiences that hold similar energy to a past event.

You might feel like your healing is going backwards, but trust that it is cyclical. Trust in the seeds you’ve planted in the past. Trust in your inevitable period of blooming.

The full moon is also known as the Planting Moon. The Seed has sprouted. Life is flowing and growing wild.

The Planting Moon brings you back to Earth. Prepare your garden so your dreams can grow. Spiritually and quite literally.

For this earthy full moon, we are reconnecting with Gaia- the plant allies, crystal companions and our ritual from last month by completing our witches garden.

If you haven’t planted any seeds yet, no worries! There is still plenty of time. If you did already plant your seeds, they might be big enough to be moved to a bigger planter.

But before we transplant plant our seeds, we are going to create a dedicated planter to hold them and help them grow.

This week is going to shake things up! The new moon lands in Aquarius on the 11th and if the Water Bearer is considered the rebel of the zodiac, his cosmic counterpart is the asteroid, Lilith. And she is making a lot of squares this week.

The same day as the new moon, she squares both Venus & Jupiter, while Venus conjuncts Jupiter. Conflicts and drama in relationships can surface, so tread lightly. There could be an internal struggle with following your heart and going against others’ wishes and opinions.

The Energies of February 2021

Good Witches Homestead

We are now just past the midway point between the solstice in December and the coming March equinox. Daylight hours are now expanding at an increasingly noticeable rate, bringing a welcome reminder that Spring is not so far away again.

Despite the winter cold, aconites, crocuses, snowdrops and the first delicate pink Hellebores are lighting up the corners in our garden and reminding us that it is nearly time for the next round of mother tincture making to begin. It is also a lovely reassuring reminder to us to connect in with the natural world any time we feel in need of a little extra stability and grounding.

As we venture forth into the energies of February there is still plenty of the same volatile intensity in the energy flow that we have experienced so obviously during January.

In general, we can expect a few more peaks of intenseness before…
