New Moon in Aries Lunar Report | Entering the Planting Moon Cycle

 

This is our first new moon of the new season, and we are all in some new and uncharted territory with the current situation going on in the world right now! Many locations are under quarantine and lockdowns right now… It is easy to feel anxious around this situation, and we are being asked to stay indoors, this is also an opportunity to go within.

Now is the perfect time to meditate and visualize the outcome we are wanting to see.

The Planting Moon cycle is a time for planting seeds both literally and metaphorically. This new moon holds potent energy, so plant some intentions that are for your greater good and for the greater good of all!

A BEDTIME CRYSTAL RITUAL FOR PEACE

A Bedtime Crystal Ritual for Peace / krista-mitchell.com

It’s been my experience that sleep can be hard to come by in spring, anyway, due to the time change and cyclical shifting of the seasons.

I reckon it’s tough for even more people right now, with the fear and uncertainty many are experiencing.

And especially tough for empaths and sensitives, who feel it all.

It’s also hard for healers who feel the call to action but are required to stay at home. All that energy gets pent up and starts to feel like anxiety, which can make it hard to sleep.

The mind has trouble quieting. The adrenaline keeps pumping in reaction to the stress and fear. There’s that wired/tired feeling. And we take it all to bed with us.

Does this resonate for any of you?

This bedtime crystal ritual came to me today, and to be honest, I need it to – I find the only time I’m making for my own self-care right now is at the very start and very end of my days.

It’s just too busy in between.

But I need my rest. And we all need space for some peace and light to come in, creating moments of soul care and respite.

This ritual is simple, sweet, and loving.

I hope it is of service to you. 🙏🏻

Finding Balance at the Spring Equinox: A Sun Ritual Using the Three Druid Elements

The Druid's Garden

The Spring Equinox, Alban Eiler, is the time when the light and the dark in the world are in balance. The timing of the Equinox is fortuitous–this time of balance–after such turmoil in the world. Here in the last two weeks here in the US, we’ve been on a whirlwind of change where nearly every person’s life has been radically disrupted and changed due to the global pandemic. Given the circumstances of where we are, today, I’d like to offer a balancing ritual for Spring Equinox that you can do personally to help bring balance into your life.  (I’m posting this a few days early from my usual weekly post so that you have it in time for the Equinox!)

First Moon of Spring 2020

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder –Greetings Dreamers, Artists, Healers and Lovers of the Moon, Spring is finally here! The birds sing, the clouds rumble and the flowers awaken. This first of three New Moons of Spring, starts March 24th, a few days before the Spring Equinox on March 19th. Watch your signs this week for the next cycle coming – as we settle into the changes happening around us, within us and in the world. For newbies, here are the directions of this work-study.

The global virus upon us, even if its not “the last of them or the final one”. This starts us off at the 3-year mark, past the Moontime Shift of August 21, 2017 Eclipse. That was the final death of the 3,000 year Sun Cult (time and the patriarch). Anyone who studies and works with cycles for a long time,  knows that the impacts of the…

March Equinox Reading 2020

March is one huge deal of a month and truly the mark of some significant endings and beginnings taking place. The Equinox falls on the 19th as the Sun enters Aries and comes into a conjunction with Chiron, squaring the Nodes. This comet so named after the Greek centaur is a both a symbol of suffering and strength, where healing abilities coexist with a wound that must be endured, and perhaps, eventually dissolved.

Chiron in Aries indicates a kind of collective identity crisis is taking place and that as awareness of the issues at hand and what is behind them begins to grow, so does a collective sense of anger and uprising. And maybe that’s what needs to happen, in order to set some very twisted things straight on this planet. A conflict lies between self-preservation and greed, and this not only entails the masses but the power elite…

Taking a Breath: Spiritual Care for Intense Times

The Druid's Garden

To say that this hasn’t been an easy week for anyone in North America, Europe or in many places around the globe is an understatement. Between what is happening in work life, school life, and political life, the situation is difficult to navigate.  I’ve talked to many friends and family who are feeling overwhelmed, lost, panicked, and fearful about the near future. So today’s post is about taking a breath.  Its times like these that I am thankful for my druid practice, thankful for the healing nature provides, and thankful for the lessons of spirit.  Let’s take a breather today, now, in this space and time, and talk through a few spiritual self-care practices that can help in times of high stress, anxiety, and intensity.  I have three kinds of suggestions that have helped me get through this week–embracing nature, embracing spiritual practices, and embracing the bardic arts.

Embrace Nature

Saturn in Aquarius 2020 – 2023

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder –On March 19th, we have the Spring Equinox, on March 21st Saturn moves into Aquarius and on March 24th we have the Spring Equinox. This is a triplex change, as we enter the new cycle of Saturn moving out of its own sign of Capricorn where its been at home and business as usual.

Saturn is a stern, restrictive, self disciplined and traditional task master and the parts of our lives that we find value to keep us in line, or the lack of that makes us accountable for where we have not. Saturn is a mature planet, the over thirty to sixty, where the consequences in life are serious.

The sign of Aquarius is electrically charged with “change” the participles and parts of our lives that have become stagnant and need a good shock. So we are dealing here with two great diva’s in…

CELESTITE: A HEALING RITUAL FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

Celestite: A Healing Ritual for Divine Intervention / www.krista-mitchell.com

Celestite is a strontium sulfate crystal whose fragility belies its majestic healing power.

Its name derives from the Latin “heavenly”.

We work with celestite a LOT in my Pro Crystal Healer program to help reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and to deepen our exploration and development of our spiritual selves.

In meditation it helps connect us with the “something more” that we all are, and its high frequency vibrations opens divine channels that can help lead us on our soul path, discover our life purpose, and embody more of our higher potential.

It resonates with the heart, throat, 3rd eye, and crown chakras.

March Full Moon 2020: Catch the ‘Worm Moon’ and the first supermoon of the year on Monday | Space

Good Witches Homestead

March full moon

How the “Worm Moon” got its name

According to the Ontario Native Literacy Project, the Ojibwe (or Anishinaabe) peoples called the full moon of March Ziissbaakdoke Giizas, or the Sugar Moon, as March is when the maple sap begins to run. The Cree called it the Mikisiwipisim, or the Eagle Moon.

The Haida of the Pacific Northwest calls the March full moon Xitgaás Kungáay, or “Noisy Goose Moon,” according to the Tlingit Moon and Tide Teaching Resource published by the University of Alaska at Fairbanks. A number of migratory species are endemic to the region.

In the Southern Hemisphere, March falls during late summer and early autumn, and the Māori of New Zealand described the lunar month in March to April (as measured between the successive new moons, with the full moon halfway between) as Paengha-whāwhā, which means “all straw is now stacked at the borders of the plantations,” according…

Seed Moon Intention Planting Ceremony

SeedMoon.jpeg

We are just a week and a half away from the spring Solstice! Spring begins on the 19th of March this year (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.)

This is the earliest first day of spring we have seen for 124 years!

Already, there are signs of spring! Greenery is popping up, plants are coming back to life and birds are beginning to chirp again. The ground is softening once again so that the planting season can begin!

This week, on the 10th of march, Mercury is going direct! This Mercury retrograde has caused a lot of past lessons to come back up. For many, there are coming around again so as to not be avoided again. These last few weeks might have been uncomfortable on many levels, but we are shedding old energies so that we can grow and rise into our most authentic selves!

Full Supermoon Seed Moon in Virgo Planting Intention Ceremony

 

This Full Supermoon is in the earthy sign of Virgo!

You might feel a pull towards spring cleaning or organizing your home this week. It’s a great time for spring cleaning!

The energy of Virgo will help you figure out exactly what needs to be cleared away so that you can allow what serves you to grow in its place.

This is also a great week to spend out in the garden pulling out the dead plants and preparing the new growth that will soon come in.
