Inner Harmony; Full Moon in Cancer

Good Witches Homestead

We are moving into a new decade and there is a freshness in these cool, crisp days that clears mind and heart and gives us a new perspective on our lives.

Today at 11:21 am PST (2:21 pm EST) we have a full moon in Cancer and at 11:10 am PST (2:10 pm EST) the peak of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses are not times to place intentions, although the energies can create emotional responses, so be acutely aware as to where you are and how you are responding.

Many of you may have already worked with your New Year Intentions, however, with the Full Moon and Penumbral Lunar Eclipse tomorrow along with the movement and conjunction of Saturn and Pluto on Sunday you may want to open space to nurture them ~ or for those of you who have not finalized or created your yearly intentions…

Spirit de la Lune Lunar Eclipse
Spirit de la Lune Wolf Moon Eclipse

 

This Lunar Eclipse is a big one. You will find it will have some personal impacts in your own life, and you might notice some big things going on in the world this weekend.

This full moon in Cancer is the Wolf Moon. This is a pretty intense Eclipse! The full moon is opposite the sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. This is especially intense as we are building up for Saturn-Pluto conjunction taking place on the 12th of January.

We’ve likely all been feeling the Saturn Pluto conjunction building for a few weeks now … On a global level, we are likely to see some big shifts within our governments, the economy and other surprising political news.

On a personal level, you might find out some unexpected news, or feel a call to get real with yourself so you can reach some of your long term goals. This Lunar Eclipse is a very powerful one when it comes to setting intentions and making your dreams come true.

For tonight’s Full Moon Eclipse Ritual we are featuring a DIY on creating your own manifestation box.

Moons of the Winter Solstice

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder –The three moons of Winter has had many symbols over the millennium, both light and the harshness of the winter itself. Death shown here, plays with the magician, the sorcerer, the clown, the trickster and the clown. Illustration is De Kapelle der Dooden by Abraham a Sancta Clara in 1741.

Skeleton symbolism has always represented the core bones of who we are, its symbolized what is left of us after we pass on and its represented humanities condition in the world, where we are left abandoned and the hardships of starving, longing desperately for union with a nourishment from heaven and earth.

For most that is hard to imagine in the golden age 1950 to present around the world in all countries, but if that changed, then we would truly understand what it meant. For some like Syria pr Ukraine right now, or other…

The Energies of December 2019

Good Witches Homestead

2019 has not been an easy year for many people; there has been a lot going on and often some very difficult things to deal with along the way.

The energetic flow for December looks set to provide us with a grand climax to the roller coaster journey we have all been on this year. One that will help us finally shed the old worn-out shells of what we have believed about ourselves in favor of a permanently more expanded perspective.

Transformation, Truth, Alignment and Purpose are some of the exciting potentials held within the energetic construct this month. Over the next few weeks take the opportunity to gather the threads of everything that you have been working on over the past 12 months and then give yourself permission to move beyond it.

The transformational momentum of the current energy flow will support you all the way through this final…

Astrorisa Moon Forecast ~Gemini Full Moon 12/12/2019

The Cold Moon 
Astrorisa Moon Forecaster

Thursday, December 12 2019
Time: 12:12 AM EST
Moon 19° Gemini, in House 9
Sun 19° Sagittarius, in House 3
Ascendant 25° Virgo 

Welcome to the last full moon of the year, the Cold Moon and Gemini Full Moon. This will be a fiery moon time with lots of impatience, ideas, and determination moving throughout this lunar season. Quick action,  and rapid thoughts comes with Gemini which is ruled by Mercury and associated with Eshu and Ibeji. These cosmic energies during this moon time indicate what we speak on, what we ask to receive or release can happen in two-fold. The sun is in the sign of Sagittarius, a fire sign ruled by Jupiter and associated with both Obatala and Ososi. Thus the warriors are showing up within this moon time in full force along with some element of grace and divine protection. Those who pave the way for change, who make rules, laws, and enforce the laws are very important players during this moon time. The fallacies and shadiness of past untruths will have a brilliant light shown upon its treacherousness and acts of treason will also be exposed during this time.

However, this moon time also indicates many prayers being answered, success in business, goals, relationships, and money ventures. If we’ve put in the work or begin to put in the work many blessings begin to manifest. Keeping promises, and avoiding the breaking of laws and oaths is important during the next 27 days, December 12, 2019- January 8, 2020.
Victory, self-defense, preparing for hard work, and unexpected demands. In other words, it ain’t over ’til it’s over. These are some themes of this moon time. Pay close attention to house 4 in your personal chart due to its stellium in Capricorn the archetype of Obaluaiye. This means there are 4 or more planets in house 4 and in the sign of Capricorn. What is wishy-washy and unstructured in your life at this time? How stable and healthy are your relationships, your mind and your body?  Both house 4 and the Capricorn sign is heavily activated during this moon time. How is your personal home, family life, family history affecting your house 3 and house 9 which are ruled by Gemini and Sagittarius? Is there a loving relationship or a war between close friends, siblings and co-workers? How are you communicating, what are you giving attention to or researching?
This moon time is also about re-evaluating what you should be placing your energies towards. Are we focusing on a positive outcome to a challenging situation? Are we putting in the work? During this moon time, we must be careful of becoming stubborn, and big headed. And constraining against not taking necessary advice, if we want to reach some level of success.
In addition to acquiring victory if we work hard for it, this moon time also speaks of multiple forms of transformation. Yes, this is definitely a transformative lunar time. Many of us have been ready to cut ties, leave an issue or person(s) behind. However, that may not be enough to do because this transformative lunar based energy has a strong spiritual component to it. Moon squaring Neptune allows us to empower ourselves through our search for spiritual understanding, which leads to transformation without fear. Neptune sextile Pluto allows us to get ready to deal with deep levels of transformations and address our reservations or fears if we have them. This moon time will take us on a personal and collective journey of renewal in some form or fashion. If we do the work, we can become spiritually vibrant and young at heart again.
Self Control, Determination, Avoiding Arguments, Bitterness, Disputes and Lies.
Cowardness, and being 2-faced. These are more of the main themes regarding this month’s full moon challenges we’ll work to avoid or to keep in check.
Manifesting the qualities of Obatala during this moon time can be our saving grace.
MOON TIME CEREMONY
Gemini Full Moon Ceremony: To create a space of worthiness. The question to ask ourselves before starting our ceremony is “What Am I Worth Receiving”?
Gemini will over think and analyze a situation but sometimes has trouble getting to the heart of the matter. This moon time is about getting to the heart of the matter, not only through hard work but with intuitive spiritual insight. 
Items Needed:
Wash 9 coins either quarters or dimes.
Cleanse 1 white candle short or tall encased in glass.
1 small glass of water
a white cloth
 
Write down 9 reasons why you are worthy to receive blessings and or worthy to be released from something that will open you up for blessings.
 
Instructions:
After taking a bath or shower and dressing in white. Perform the full moon fill em up ceremony.
Go to your sacred space for moon ceremony work, speak into your glass of water a prayer of thanksgiving. Set the glass on the white cloth.
 Each coin represents one of the nine reasons why you are worth to receive a blessing. Take each coin and separately dip it into the glass of water and speak which one of the nine reasons of worthiness, that coin represents.
 When you’re finished you should have a circle of coins surrounding your glass of water. Now place your white candle next to the water glass and invision yourself moving toward satisfaction. When you are ready light the candle and allow the flame to ignite your prayers.
Leave the candle to burn for 1 hour then extinguish it. Allow your ceremony space to sit undisturbed for 3 days then take it down. Give the coins away to someone in need or to a child. Discard the candle and pour out the water.
Have a powerfully transformative and graceful Full Moon Time

The Power of Breathing; Full Moon in Gemini

Good Witches Homestead

Tomorrow morning at  7:47 am PST (10:47 am EST) we enter the Full Moon in Gemini. Gemini is an air element and when the Moon is in Gemini we can find our thoughts and nerves speeding up. It is also a time to feel liberated and free ~ teaching us to work with possibilities. This is a time to focus on balancing the Element of Air ~ the unseen energies of life.

Air is the element that connects all other elements. It has the power to shift and change the landscape ~ shaping itself into the space available or shaping space to its own nature. You experience the power of air through its movement ~ maybe through a soft breeze passing over your skin or the scent of flowers it may carry. Air gives us life ~ it is the power of breath. Each breath is a cycle within itself. Your…

Spirit de la Lune Cold Moon Ceremony

Happy Full Cold Moon!

For many of us, this Full Moon reaches its peak fullness at 12:12 on 12/12 this year!

This full moon activates the powerful numerology code of 12! 12 is a number of wholeness and completion. This full moon illuminates the completion of our our journey throughout this past year and helps us see the bigger picture of just how far we have come. This powerful full moon is helping many realize a shift in consciousness.

If you are sensitive to energy, you may have been feeling this powerful portal opening for some time now. You might be feeling anxious or restless if you haven’t been living up to your potential or fulfilling your purpose. This is not a punishment… this is a reminder and a call to evolve!

2019 is a 3 number, and 12/12 also translate to 3, making today a 333 day. 333 is a number of big changes and the expression of our truth. 333 carries the energy of 9, which is another number of wholeness and completion. It’s time to prepare for the big changes that 2020 holds for us while also reflecting on our journeys from 2019.

Moments after the moon reaches her peak fullness, Chiron, the wounded healer goes direct. Chiron has been retrograde since July of this last year. When this asteroid stations direct, under the light of the Full moon, you might feel a sense of clarity about your journey of healing over this last year. Some past triggers from that time might get pulled up for reevaluation and healing once again, but remember this is part of the journey.

The healing journey moves in spirals and holds many ebbs and flow. Embrace what comes up! Feel and heal your way through it.

The Cold Moon represents the time when we are called inward to experience the quiet reflection of our own souls. A sense of hibernation and rest comes with this full moon.

The moon in Gemini also represents the mind as well as our connection and ability to communicate with others. This is a time to gather with friends and family around the fire. Seek comfort in the quiet long nights and the closeness this time of year can provide!

Astrorisa Moon Forecast ~Taurus Full Moon 11/12/2019

Beaver Moon 
Astrorisa Moon Forecaster

Tuesday, November 12 2019
Time: 8:34 AM EST
Full Moon 19° Taurus, in House 5
Sun 19° Scorpio, in House 11
Ascendant 11° Sagittarius

Welcome to the Beaver Moon time, its full moon in Taurus (Oshun) with Sun in Scorpio (Oya). The Beaver is called the builder within the water~earth animal kingdom. It is a creature that is family conscious and known to focus on building, fortifying and restructuring its home and environment for the protection of its family and to ensure it has sufficient resources. This lunar animal totem definitely corresponds to this moon’s Taurean – Oshun archetype being the provider of home, hearth, and happiness for all who dwell within her domain. Thus this is a solution oriented moon time with attention being directed close to home. Moon in house 5 is activated; many of us will feel a need to express ourselves in an artistic fashion.
Some people will be more carefree while others may notice their romantic side shows more. Whatever it is that our individual consciousness wants to explore at this time collectively, it will be related to House 5 activities in some form. House 5 rules income, children, self-expression, creativity, and indulgence on some level. Sun in Scorpio the archetype of Oya is still manifesting the experience of change and transformation, yet it is a very dedicated and motivated energy which will require our collective consciousness to do just that, remain motivated during this moon time spanning November 12th – December 8th.
Moon in Taurus, the archetype of Oshun and Sun in Scorpio, the archetype of Oya. This moon time also speaks of a need to create a balance within a situation of some kind. Whatever the topic is, the goal would likely be to concentrate on being focused and not running here and there. Not giving into procrastination but working consistently towards creating the joy and or happiness we’ve envisioned within our minds. This is a good time to also focus on the children, removing chaotic energy that surrounds them and replace it with the introduction of stability and more fun moments, as children are very important during this moon time. (pet the children, make them happy.)
We’ll find ourselves tapping into our creative mind and our imagination more, but also into intense feelings. This moon time is full of intense energy 19° Sun and Moon brings us to the threshold of entering and exiting simultaneously in and out of some profound situation. We’re experiencing a revolving cosmic door, what we attract enters into our lives, and what we chose to remove we can more easily discard. However, we should be aware that this type of cosmic line up can also influence our mental sphere and intuitive state of being both becoming over active if not careful. Our intuition and dreams can increase and so can our paranoia and fears.
So once again we must balance something and in this case we must balance our “openness” to extreme thoughts, energies, and emotions. If we get caught in the loop or revolving door of overt connecting, nothing will get done. Thus more energy will be exerted towards getting plans off the ground when that may not need to be the case.
FOCUS – FOCUS- FOCUS. BALANCE-BALANCE-BALANCE. ENJOY-ENJOY-ENJOY.
Another message for this moon time is material success, yes this moon time points towards many forms of success especially material success. Some people will find themselves receiving funds unexpectedly, opportunities opening up, business ventures awakening, and all this concentration of success falls within the 1st 11 days of this moon time. This is more so to happen for those who invest their time and energy wisely. Others will have problems holding onto money, giving into the desire for extravagance and spending. Again, focus and effort are required during this moon time in order to reach a reasonable level of success. Sun in 11th house, generosity, and help from others abounds but also, we are more willing to share, and gift others too. Giving and receiving can be done in balance and with great joy during this moon time.
A lot of what we encounter during this moon time will be based on what we’ve created in our minds.
The challenging side of this moon time:
Is avoiding frustration.
Avoiding creating negative financial matters.
Avoiding the creation of delays.
Placate the Ori ( your spiritual head), keep it cool and supple. Avoid hardheadedness.
MOON TIME CEREMONY
Taurus Full Moon Ceremony: To create the reception of treasures such as good experiences, happiness, resources, and wealth.
1 Green glass encased candle any size that can burn for 3 hours.
1 Piece of yellow cloth or yellow construction paper.
1 Medium piece of brown paper (paper bag)
 
Instructions:

Place a yellow cloth or yellow construction paper down, then place your brown paper onto the yellow cloth or construction paper. Next place your cleansed green candle on top of the brown paper.
November 12th Before the fill em up prayer ~ceremony: Take a bath or shower to remove the energies of the day. Dress in white, cover your head in white.

Full Crone Moon | Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony

Happy Full Crone Moon & 11/11 Gateway!

The energy has been building in intensity over this entire month leading us to this fabulous Full Moon in Taurus.

November is providing us with so many astrological and cosmic lessons!

On 11/11 this month there is what is known as a “gateway” or cosmic portal opening up. This 11/11 gateway is meant to expand consciousness, upgrade our intuition, heighten our abilities, bring about self healing and gives us access to new spiritual wisdom.

On the 11th, Mercury is in conjunction with the Sun. Mercury, our innermost planet of the solar system will pass right in front of the Sun. It will even be visible to many in North America. This event rarely happens and won’t happen again until the year 2032.

Mercury represents the mind, communication and the intellect, passing in front of the light of the Sun will bring us new awareness, answers to big questions we’ve been asking and gives us access to other new information the entire planet has been asking for. The fact that it happens on the 11th is huge!

11 is a very powerful number. In Numerology there are 3 master numbers, 11, 22, and 33. 11 represents intuition, instant karma and manifestation. There is a reason we make wishes when we see 11:11 on the clock! This number represents access to the higher realms, connecting the subconscious to the conscious and manifesting our goals and dreams into physical reality.

Full Moon in Taurus 11/11 gateway cacao ceremony Spirit de la Lune

This 11/11 gateway lining up just before the Full Moon on the 12th is a very powerful occurrence! Some say it’s the most magical day of the year. 11/11 acts as a doorway that we choose to “walk through” whenever we notice it.

Earth is currently going through a mass awakening. You might be noticing repeating numbers 1111, 222, etc. You might even notice sequential numbers like 1234. This is a sign that you are currently “walking through” these gateways, downloading new information, and being given access to new gifts, upgrades and a higher consciousness.

This clears out old programming and helps you step into a new and better version of you. Be aware, this can trigger the ego a bit… in order for you to notice what needs clearing.

This portal/gateway lasts a few days and the energy can be intense. One of the best ways to access this portal and step through the “gateway” is actually through the heart chakra, and staying in your heart.

With the New Moon in Taurus on the 12th, we wanted to do a heart chakra ceremony for this special event using the earth medicine of Cacao.

The Energies of November 2019

Good Witches Homestead

The last couple of months have brought forward some decidedly intense, transformational currents of energy for us all to negotiate.  Hopefully, you are now becoming skilled at riding the waves of change that these energies tend to promote because November’s energy flow seems to have a focus on promoting further evolutionary growth. This is a month to allow everything that you are not, to dissolve with as much ease and grace as you can manage so that you can integrate more of your true self.

The energies incoming through the 11-11 gateway will as always, contain positive high-frequency light codes that will stimulate soul alignment and greater connection with our divine self. Mercury will be retrograde and conjunct the sun in Scorpio over this period which will provide exactly the right energetic focus to help us go within and connect with what is important for us at an inner level…
