The full moon lunar eclipse in Leo is exact at 12:16am ET on Monday, January 21st.

I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to get to this article this week.

I’ve been in my own process of paradigm shifting: contemplating where I am authentically on my path, where I’d like to go, what I’m ready to release, and what I’m ready to embrace. It’s all required a good measure of solitude and quiet.

But I’m happy I managed to get to the page because this is a powerful lunar phase for us all, and I received a beautiful, elegant yet simple crystal ritual in the Akashic records that I wanted to be able to share with you!

First, though, to answer a question I’ve been asked before: Should you put your crystals out under a full moon lunar eclipse?

No. UNLESS you want to capture or record its energy, in which case I would recommend putting out a chosen quartz crystal.

It’s essentially like capturing this full moon lunar eclipse vibes in a bottle. You can work with the quartz whenever you’re doing healing or banishing work that corresponds with this moon’s energy (to read more on that specifically, read this article).

Welcome to the 1st full moon of 2019. It is a Wolf Moon, a Super Moon, a Blood Moon and a total lunar eclipse. That means a lot is going on, under the glow of this moon. To get an idea of the identifiable energies of this
particular moon, let’s look at it’s various names. The Wolf Moon, gives honor to the wolf pack howling into the night, roaming, and looking for food. Wolf medicine speaks of a pathfinder, and a tracker. There’s a correlation between the Spirit of Leo (Lion) and the Spirit of the Wolf. They both are very attentive and loving towards their families.  The Wolf Moon is that moon that one can work with to gain deep insight, to heighten one’s instincts, and to seek or become The Sage. In Orisa, the Wolf Moon would be associated with Ososi the tracker, and Ogun the loyal hunter.
Wolf medicine teaches one to be both their unique individual self and an important member of the pack, family, or community.
This is also a Super Moon, which happens 3-5 times a year and is nearest to the earth. Super moons are known to mark earth upheavals and natural disasters as well as strongly pulling on our ocean’s tides. One way we can work with Super moon energy is by noting when they are scheduled to happen, and prepare for the unexpected, by storing food, clothing, money, documents etc. in a ready to grab bag. Another way we can work with Super Moon energy, is to perform prayers, meditations, or lunar ceremonies that drawn in the Universal ase that is available for us to ignite our personal dimming star. So when situations aren’t moving in our favor, Super moon energy gives our ceremony a burst of energy for forward expansive movement.
This January 2019 Blood Moon, or red colored moon which is also a total lunar eclipse will occur again on 2021.Is not a moon everyone likes to conduct ceremonies with. However, this is a good moon time to seek answers to ongoing questions. Moon in Leo 0° in House 9, marks a moment of  freshness, and new developments brewing within our collective consciousness. This is a curious position that wants to understand and experience as much as it can. It can focus on family members, family units, creative problem solving, and the arts. If only choosing to fast, or meditate during the blood moon time, especially while the moon is at 0° one can gain great insight and heighten their intuition.
Important Lunar Dates and Planetary Aspects
 
During this moon time the moon’s aspects are in opposition to Sun, Uranus, Mercury , and Pluto.
 
Important Dates January 30th – February 1st : Be mindful of the unexpected happening during these dates. This warning can be on a global level referring to natural disasters, violent group outbursts, or local events such as house fires and accidents. This is a volatile aspect that signals rage,fury, military action, the instability of institutions which will need the assistance from the police or militia. It can also signal wild group behavior that also requires managing by some sort of authority.

Planetary Aspects: Mars Square Saturn

 (January 21, 2019 – February 4, 2019)
Projects started are difficult to complete under this aspect without strong dedication. Under this transit or aspect one easily gives into their weaknesses. Rejection or strong criticism can be experienced which can also affect one’s self awareness and creativity.
MOON CEREMONY WORKERS BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU PRAY FOR. MAKE SURE IT IS VERY POSITIVE, AND HEALING.
Have a creative, lucrative, stable, and safe moon time.

How To Celebrate Winter For More Personal Empowerment

Good Witches Homestead

 As the sun reminds us, it is time to begin considering the year behind and the new one ahead. This year you might consider how winter can aid you in finding more personal empowerment.

Standing in our own personal empowerment allows us to no longer feel like the victim and begin to take full accountability for our own feelings, emotions, situations, and relationships. When we feel victimized by others actions or reactions we are actually giving our personal power away to that situation. No one gives us our emotions, instead, they come from within us based on our core beliefs, our experiences, and our expectations.

When we begin to take full responsibility for our own emotional state we have stepped into our empowerment. Personal empowerment is often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. This winter we hope you will take the time to take a personal inventory of your emotional…

EASY MORNING CRYSTAL RITUAL

By Krista Mitchell

Easy-morning-crystal-ritual-/ krista-mitchell.com

I start every day with my spiritual practice. My students will tell you that I’m big on maintaining a consistent daily energy + spiritual routine, and of course crystals are always a big part of that for me.

Even if it’s just taking five minutes to tune in to myself, center, and connect with my soul or the Universe, those five minutes can initiate a palpable energy shift that can help set up my whole day for the better.

If you’ve been considering ways to integrate crystal energy into your daily life, or for ways to add an energy healing component to your daily spiritual practice, the following morning crystal ritual is easy, quick, and effective.

I do this every morning, and by evening when I reflect back I can see how much it affected how productive, less stressful, creative, and happy my day went in general.

Foundation Stone Spell

This Crooked Crown

This is a spell designed to help protect them home in an active manner. When done, this spell will automatically absorb negative energy without you having to touch a thing. There is some spell maintenance, but otherwise, this spell will work on its own.

The idea behind this spell is the concept of cornerstones within the foundation of a house. Historically, these stones were carefully chosen and often had folkloric or even magical implications. You’ll probably need to dive a bit into gem and crystal lore to find the right stone or stones for you.

There’s two ways to do this spell and both are outlined below. The spell works the nearly the same for both, so pick whichever fits your style best.

Method One – One Stone

Ingredients

  • A stone selected from your property
  • A quiet yet obvious place to put it
  • Purified or blessed water (see notes)

First…

The Energies of January

Good Witches Homestead

As we begin in 2019, we are of course at the beginning of a new twelve-month cycle with all that this generally means in terms of new beginnings and personal resolutions for the future.

This year we are also at the beginning of a new seven-year cycle making it a particularly important opportunity to revise and reset our direction both internally and externally.

The past seven years have been especially notable for the intensity of the clearing process that we have been going through, a process instigated by the reseeding of the Unity Consciousness matrix both within Mother Earth and the hearts of humanity. The next seven years will bring expanded opportunities to evolve and grow in the light of this matrix, building on the work that we have all done within ourselves over the last few years.

2018 was not an easy year for many people as the cosmos…

HOW TO MAKE GEM ELIXIRS OR CRYSTAL ESSENCES

Good Witches Homestead

Gem elixirs also called crystal essences or crystal waters, have been used by many throughout the ages. They are a convenient way to use the vibrational energies of the crystals for crystal healing, magick, and more. They are easy to make and can be stored for later use.

You can use one crystal, several, or even several different types to make a gem elixir. Using multiple types creates a synergy blend, which is useful for bringing together the vibrations of several stones as more than the sum of the parts, so to speak.

I recommend creating gem elixirs using what is called the indirect method, and I outline it below. This method is the safest for all crystal types because the elixir waters do not come in direct contact with the stones used. The direct method — where the stones are placed directly in the water — can be potentially…

The Nature of Neptune and Neptunian Dreamers

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming –  Neptune is the most elusive, dreamy and full of Illusion impact that we can experience in a lifetime. For a long time I have said “Pluto may rule Hell, but Neptune is Hell” and one would have to be saturated for a long time by the influences of this on their lives to stick with its nightmares to its transformations to its mysticism. Neptune rules self undoing, addictions, mysticism, distortions, illusions, delusions in personal and inter-personal ways.

Neptune rules the very complexity mirror work both in waking life and dream work, and because Pisces is the last water sign, it rules the Collective Mirror more appropriately. Neptune’s impact on my and other people’s lives has shown much sickness and mental sickness, distortions within visions and drug/plant usage (addiction).

When one must deal with the longest cycles of Neptune or Pluto, Uranus is fast…
