Third New Moon of Autumn

Elder Mountain Dreaming

 By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Hello Dreamers, our next moon cycle begins on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 @ 26 degrees Scorpio. This moon brings us fire to dry out after last month’s long watery journey. As the season slows down more and more, we enter our third and final moon of the 3 moons of Autumn and its the dark moon phase of the three. A Sagittarian cycle, even though by degree, its at 26 Scorpio. The reason is because the 13 “moons” of the seasonal lunar year, does not fit into the 12 “month” astrological and “sun” calendar year. This gets out of balance every so often, but that doesn’t mean we have to.

Marzanna 2017.pngI hope all of you are doing well after last month,  because everyone I spoke with said it was challenging or very challenging cycle. Many had dreams of their past childhood, their own inner…

Good Witches Homestead

An Eclipse opens a portal, releasing waves of energy that is available to us all, giving us a rare opportunity to get in touch with and listen to the inner voice of our intuition, our inner knowing, and wisdom, our inner compass.

It is the beginning of an Eclipse cycle that is ushering us into a new and transformative life-changing phase at immense speed, taking us to our next evolutionary level.

The pressure may feel quite intense, as this Lunar Eclipse marks the grand finale of three Jupiter-Pluto tense squares that have been shaking up everything from the personal to the political since November 2016. Pushing us to step up to our personal power and inner greatness.

The focal point of this Lunar Eclipse is the rare “Finger of God” constellation. A finger of God shows a special life transforming mission.

We are presently in the midst of a karmic mission on…

Second Full Moon of Summer 2017

Elder Mountain Dreaming

Artist Charles Vess

By Phoenix the Elder – Greetings Dreamers and Moon Souls, we now enter our Second Full Moon of Summer, the release intention. We are hitting the peak of summer with this full moon, and she sits at 14 degrees Aquarius beginning on Monday, August 7, 2017. It conjuncts the south node and sits opposite the Sun, Mars and the North Node. Direction and Will Power are the deliberate magical qualities of this second half of the second moon cycle.

My wisdom says… Make up your mind and make your decisions “now” and let things crumble and fall where they may in order to live your truth. This is an Aquarian Full Moon and its all about the Truth or Chaos. Because its another Mars/Moon connection, the forth one in a row, along with the 5th one at the next new moon, along side the 100 year Eclipse, this is a…

The Druidic religion was reputedly based on the oak-cult mythology and all ancient thunder-gods were associated with the oak tree. There is evidence to suggest, however, that the oak-cult was imported into Britain from the Baltic regions during the Bronze Age; and although it became the principal sacred tree of the Druids, the rowan, willow, elder, and alder cults were already established. As Druidism evolved, the significance of the…

Lithomancy, the casting of stones is an ancient art. This type of divination is usually associated with both Witchcraft & Shamanism, world-wide.

Pendulum Dowsing

Good Witches Homestead

Many people have the ability to dowse, but are not aware of this very useful ‘talent’. Those who are interested in this may use different tools as a dowser including a locket on a neck chain to a quartz crystal. Some use a very simple device like a piece of strong string threaded through any lapidary stone or even plain beach pebble. Whatever you use it will need cleansing in sea salt water from time to time. When using crystals, however, it is important to note that they carry a strong energy of their own. Therefore they can work in the opposite direction according to the individual and indeed crystal. This can be confusing to a beginner and it’s necessary when using any crystal to first establish its polarities before working.

Remember that the heavier the crystal or stone the more ‘energy’ is required to activate it. If you are…

Dowsing With Pendulum’s

Good Witches Homestead

You start by learning how to use your Pendulum, especially the signals needed for accuracy and the correct method of asking questions. Learn to make your home healthy and prevent diseases. You can accomplish water divining, improving water quality, and locate people and objects.

BONDING WITH YOUR PENDULUM

A Pendulum can be made from a paperclip on a piece of cotton thread, a brass weight on a string, or a cannon ball on a chain (if you are strong enough to lift it!). Some people use key tags or a crystal on a metal chain. A glass bead, about 3/8 th. inch ( 1 cm) diameter (spherical or pear-shaped) suspended by about 15 inches (40 cm) of braided thread (e.g. a shoe lace) is a good compromise.

First bond together with your Pendulum as a team, and let the Force for Good be with you – so hold your Pendulum…
