Scorpio full moon date: Saturday, May 18th 2019 at 5:11pm ET

Scorpio full moons are very powerful.

The energy of Scorpio is intense. It’s full of magnetism, hidden secrets, dark places, fixed focus, embodiment of the shadow self, introspection, persistence, and sensual pleasure.

I always think of Scorpio as the sex and death sign, one of dark magicks being worked in the hob hollow.

Pair that with the potent vibes of a full moon, and you’ve got a heck of a night for conjuring!

The energy of a full moon can be worked two ways: pull or push, manifestation or banishment, depending on when you work it.

Full Blue Moon Meditation & Shower Ritual for Renewal

This full moon takes place in the signs of Taurus and Scorpio depending on your location. It’s can be a time of both amplified emotions and increased sensitivity. A time to go within and shed the layers of your past self. Self care is important this month as healing can be a tiring process.

A blue moon isn’t actually blue in color during this time, but the term
”Once in a Blue Moon” does hold it’s merit! It is a pretty unique Full Moon!

There are usually three full moon between each seasonal shift. Some years, there are four full moon in a season. When this happens, the third full moon is called a Blue moon! The second definition is when 2 Full Moons happen in one month.

3rd Full Moon of Spring 2019 – Lunar Flares entering Luminous Phenomena

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – We are half way through our moon cycle now and the Full Moon in Scorpio is Saturday, May 18, 2019. I walk a path of the reversed eureka effect (the aha moments) which are rare in our life and what this means is we really believe in something for a long time until we awaken and understand that it wasn’t the truth, it was only what we wanted to believe about the self or others. These are the moments past change, they fall into recognition through self awareness.

Moon (feelings, truth, chaos, unpredictable) is opposite the Sun (grounded, reality, dependable, repetitive) and because our moon is so personal, opening to illusions can bring forth old emotions, old memories and old remembrances that fall under the mysteries of “Mother”.  Illusions are a very powerful phenomena. So I combined the definitions of both luminous & phenomena…

Crystals for the Garden

by Jenn Amptman from Feather Spirit Healing

Crystals for the Garden by Jenn Amptman

It’s planting time!

May brings the promise of spring, growth and blooms. What better way to honor the fertility of Mother Earth and provide for her creatures by planting a garden or placing potted plants in your home? Houseplants clean the air, put off good vibes and serve as a daily reminder of the beauty of nature. If you’re outdoorsy, a beautiful garden can provide food for your family, herbs for healing and a delicious buffet for butterflies, bees and birds. Whether you’re an avid gardener or someone that struggles with a green thumb, adding crystals to the mix can help your plants grow stronger, bigger and healthier!

Moss agate is a stone of abundance and encourages the healthy growth of plants and crops. Deeply connected to Mother Earth, moss agate can improve your green thumb and enhance the bond you share with your garden. The beautiful colors of this stone radiate a powerful Earthy vibe, calling in the nature spirits and devas.

Green aventurine has a strong connection with Mother Earth and nature spirits, bringing about a deeper understanding and appreciation of natural beauty. It protects against electromagnetic smog, environmental pollution and geopathic stress.

Tree Agate is another excellent crystal for healing geopathic stress. Associated with tree spirits, tree agate promotes healthy growth of plants and a deep connection to the Earth.

Clear Quartz is the “Master Healer,” with the ability to amplify the energies of other stones as well as intention. Program clear quartz for growth and vitality of your plants and if using a quartz point, bury it pointing up or down, depending on where you wish to direct the energy (roots or leaves/fruit).

Happy Gardening!

5 Amazing Benefits of Crystals for Moms

by Jaime Pfeffer, MA, CCR from jaimepfeffer.com

5 Amazing Benefits of Crystals for Moms

Mothers are amazing.

From teacher and caregiver to advocate, chauffeur and referee, a mother’s ability to juggle multiple schedules, tasks, and personalities is no small feat.

Luckily, today’s moms have a variety of options when it comes to replenishing their needs, staying balanced, and growing with their families. One such resource, healing crystals, are at the top of that list.

Much like the multi-talented, incredible moms they assist, gems and crystals come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes – each with special benefits.

Here are five of my top crystal benefits for moms, along with some crystal recommendations for each:

Crystal Benefit for Moms #1: Love. There is perhaps no greater characteristic that a mother needs or gives than love. From baby’s first boo-boo to teen squabbles to everything in between, love’s potent, powerful energy serves mom’s needs, too. When it comes to tapping into crystals for loving energy, Rose QuartzKunzite, and Morganite are classic choices.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #2: More Peace. If mom suffers from a busy mind, a cluttered home, or occasional overwhelming feelings, there are several crystals available to lend her some peace. Blue Calcite and Howlite work to calm energies, while Aventurine clears the mind during chaos or upheaval. On a related front, Hematite and Smoky Quartz are effective at releasing stagnancy and protecting against negative energies.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #3: Better Balance. Most people know how much today’s moms have on their plates. Given that, what better benefit than a few crystals to help even things out? To bring more equilibrium into one’s life, reach for Shiva Lingham and Mahogany Obsidian to ground and balance yin and yang energies. If emotional stability is lacking, Lepidolite, Lithium Quartz, and Sunstone are great bets.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #4: Patience. Whoever said, “Patience is a Virtue”, was definitely on to something; just ask any mom. Fortunately, today’s matriarchs can receive a helping hand in this department from several members of the crystal family. Dumortierite and Black Onyx, for example, enhance tolerance and self-restraint, while Picture Jasper and Pietersite help Mom rise above pettiness and obstacles.

Crystal Benefit for Moms #5: Strength. Whether chasing down a toddler or watching her first-born get married, most moms can benefit from added physical and emotional strength. Top picks for staying physically fit and in shape include ApatiteTiger Iron, and Pyrite. For emotional strength and support, RubyTiger Eye, and Sapphire make the grade.

Like the women they assist, crystals are multi-talented and amazing. They serve mothers in a variety of ways, from boosting love and peace to achieving balance, and building patience and strength.

Crystal Blessings,
Jaime Pfeffer

Full Hare Moon in Scorpio

Wylde and Green

Saturday 18th May is the full Hare Moon in Scorpio. This moon will rise at 8.18pm and set at 5.45am. Making it the perfect moon for an evening ritual. Scorpio full moons are always challenging, they tend to deepen emotions and bring the past bubbling to the surface as the lunar energies are deepened once again when in Scorpio.

The card from the Tarot that corresponds with Scorpio is ‘Judgement’ – as pictured below from The Brady Tarot.

img_8564

Judgement is also a summoning to rise, a call for resolution and for re-birth, it is a card of destiny and inevitability. In the image the golden eagle with its power has called forth bats into the mid-day sun, something strange and powerful as they are creatures of the night, but they have no choice, the force to rise up is to instinctual and powerful and this overrides their desire for the…

Apple Hex Breaker

This Crooked Crown

There are thousands of ways to break a curse. But the other day I was thinking about curse breaking with ordinary items. The humble egg is the most common hex breaking tool in your average kitchen. But what about an apple?

Apples are great for love and healing spells. They’re used in binding spells too. And no one can forget the apple curse that trapped Snow White. But breaking a curse with an apple? Absolutely.

I can think of several ways to make this work, the most obvious being simply using the apple as a poppet – which is actually something of a traditional substitute. But we’re going to go a different way with a hex breaking spell today.

This spell is intended to break a hex or curse that you think has been placed on you. With an ingredient as common as an apple, you can easily do this…

Magic Wand

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Do you have a wand? How do you use it in your healing path, and what does it mean to you? I made a wand when Harry Potter came out and I used it when I do blessings (very rarely) as I am a folk healer and not a magician or magic practitioner. But… “I didn’t quit before the miracle” and the miracle has appeared now as I enter Elder.

There were never any shortcuts in our spiritual work, and nothing is free, not even free magic. I personally never wanted to take even one shortcut, because I didn’t want my later life to be heavy with burdens of misspent adulthood searching rather than seeking. 

I chose the long, enduring, difficult, hard, painfully honest, purity, humbled, poverty path because I had to in the beginning, but eventually to end the cycle of pain. I…

What’s the Birthstone for May?

Good Witches Homestead

If you were born in May, your birthstone is the emerald, a type of beryl colored green by chromium. Perfect emeralds are among the rarest of gemstones.

The emerald belongs to the beryl family of minerals that include aquamarine (one of March’s birthstones), heliodor, and morganite. Beryl, or beryllium aluminum silicate in chemical jargon, is a six-sided symmetrical crystal. Beryl contains beryllium, aluminum, silicon, and oxygen.

Emeralds vary in color from light to deep green. It’s commonly thought that an emerald’s color derives from the presence of chromium and/or vanadium replacing some of the aluminum in the mineral’s structure. The stone can, however, lose its color when heated strongly.

Several famous historical artifacts were made of emeralds. Among them is the Crown of the Andes, said to be made from emeralds worn by Atahualpa, the last Inca (king) of Peru. The crown is set with about 450 emeralds, collectively weighing…

A Fire and Smoke Ritual for Land Healing and Blessing

The Druid's Garden

A few years ago, I led a smoke cleansing (smudge) stick making workshop at the OBOD’s East Coast Gathering event. As that event often has upwards of 100 attendees, I spent months growing and harvesting materials for the event so that everyone could make 1-2 sticks.  Sure enough, everyone got to make some smudge sticks and the workshop went great.  After the workshop, one of my friends and event fire tenders, Derek, came up to me and asked me about the leftover materials.  I had been placing them in a paper bag, and had planned on taking them home to make more sticks or return to the land. He said, “I want to make a smudge bomb and send healing smoke to this entire land.”  I said, “Yes, what a great idea!” So we tightly bundled up the remainder of the material, which filled at least 1/3 of the paper…
