Tomorrow, January 25th, we celebrate the Year of the Rat ~ the Rat is the first zodiac sign of the Chinese Calendar and so we have a lot of new beginnings this year of 2020. Rat is yang energy and represents the beginning of a new day. The Rat Year is a time to develop your abilities, to think out of the box and to be resourceful and creative. The metal element signals renewed ambition and a desire to fulfill unmet needs. And during a Rat Year, you are encouraged to take care of yourself and not worry about others.

2nd Moon of Winter 2019

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix – Greeting dreamers, healers, artists and empaths, we begin our Second Moon of Winter on Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2019. We move from a fire element to an earth element, so our groundedness will be supported energetically. The serious and somber Capricorn moon expresses its opposition in the Cancer energy and that makes for a month of support, nurturing and winter activities.

Home, family, personal responsibility, reaping of autumn’s harvest, tradition, authority and celebrations of Midwinter all infused in our memories, our emotions and our desire. This is a cycle of striving for stability, unless there is a bucket of planets in Capricorn which can make the energy a little more unstable. In this moon cycle, we do have a bucket. (see chart below)

Whatever you are working on right now for your health, improvements in your behaviors, commitment to disciplines, better communication, the solstice time helps us find…

First Moon of Winter 2019

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Happy New Moon Dreamers, Healers and Artists! The first moon of winter begins November 26, 2019 and I hope your last moon was gentle and forgiving. I calculate my “13 Moons of the Year” on seasonal shifts that occurs four times a year. That is the base to be precise (which moon cycle is the ‘first’ moon cycle of a season). This moon cycle includes the Winter Solstice, thus its the 1st Moon of Winter.

Its good and wise to learn to live by the moon as timekeeper for that is what your soul (not mind) understands for millions of years. Especially the young ones to learn how to live by the moon for the future, so if your a mother, teach your children! For newbies here, please read the directions of this workstudy here.

We all completed our Autumn Moons finally and wow, it…

Full Crone Moon | Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony

9CroneMoon.jpeg

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.

ALLOWING FEAR TO BE YOUR TEACHER: CRYSTAL HEALING FOR THE SCORPIO NEW MOON

Allowing FEAR to be Your Teacher: Crystal Healing for the Scorpio New Moon. www.krista-mitchell.com

We entered the Scorpio new moon phase last night at 11:39pm ET, and I had trouble sleeping.

Anxiety, fears, shadow aspects coming up.

Scorpio is all about the dark places, the hidden and unseen, our innermost motivations and desires. It’s intensity, death, lust, magick, psychism, power, deep emotions, and manifestation.

Scorpio moons tend to have a powerful effect on me, but especially the new moon which occurs here in the North during what’s considered the descent – the dark time of the year – before the reemergence of the sun’s power at the winter solstice.

It’s a time for introspection and preparation – but for what? For an inevitable healing and growth period.

If we follow the wheel of the year, we’ve spent the first three quarters working towards our goals and harvests, actual or symbolic. It’s an active time of doing, achieving, failing, succeeding, and continuing on. Sometimes we stay on track, sometimes we stray. And sometimes, we discover that what we’ve been working towards isn’t quite what’s working for us or making us happy.

This time of year forces us to pause, reflect, and take a good hard look at what’s in the darker parts of ourselves. Our fears, shames, insecurities, ignored intuitions, lack of attention, are all things that are part of what make us human, and also the building blocks for what holds us back.

We like to avoid these things, and yet, if we approach them as teachers, they are enormous healing allies.

Crystals that help you to face and converse with your fears isn’t as popular a topic as crystals that help you to diminish your feelings of anxiety, or protect your energy. Let’s be real: we like to avoid what feels like sh**.

Third Moon of Autumn

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elsah – Greetings dreamers, moon lovers, artists and healers, we are now deepen our experiences as we enter the 3rd and last Moon of Autumn, starting Sunday, October 27, 2019. The moon is sitting at 4° Scorpio this month and anyone who has done this work for two years or more, understands that Scorpio moons are always very powerful.

I am listening to “Camille Saint-Saëns’ – Danse Macabre” as I am writing and letting the intuition flow into this months advice and its a wonderful symphony for the Halloween and late Autumn season. The music also expresses the whirlwinds of my rumblings down the large mountains and bumpily landing in my new home this past moon. My new home is three blocks from the shore of the powerful Mississippi River, steeped in nature, native lore and also the lingering times of the mid-1800s.

New Moon in Scorpio: Crone Moon Energy Update Spirit de la Lune

We are officially in Scorpio Season! The New Moon joins the Sun in the watery sign of Scorpio, and in a few short days… Mercury will be going retrograde in Scorpio as well!

This will bring us all a series of events and developments that we didn’t even know we needed to help awaken our potential.

This New Moon in Scorpio is bringing us in highly charged energy to assist us during our rebirth this season. What has been hidden will be uncovered, and what has been asleep will be stirred awake.

New Moon in Scorpio: Crone Moon Energy Update Spirit de la Lune

Prepare to dig deep! Unhealed wounds, childhood traumas and other unaddressed scars are likely to come up as we move through this “underworld.”

Don’t be afraid to step into this and to feel your feelings fully. This is coming up for a reason. Much of this is to help fully heal these past wounds and integrate the lessons of the year so we can move into 2020 with a new perspective, no longer weighed down by our past.

New Moon in Scorpio for 2019 | Durgadas Allon Duriel

Good Witches Homestead

Note: Astrology forecasts are inevitably generalized because they can’t account for each individual’s birth chart and how it interfaces with the current planetary positions. This post focuses primarily on the new Moon. Each week, Modern Witch creator Devin Hunter writes a magical astrology forecast for the week as a whole that I encourage you to check out! Also, this post refers to the pure, archetypal forms of the zodiac signs, not what we see in actual people, who each have complex birth charts.

On Sunday, October 27 at 8:38 p.m. PST, the new Moon in Scorpio will rise. New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon conjoin, occupying the same degree of an astrological sign. In a nutshell, this means that our core identity (Sun) and emotions and feelings (Moon), align. They communicate fluently and provide us with greater clarity about ourselves. As the Moon begins a new cycle…
