Aquarius Full Moon Crystal Vision Session

Aquarius Full Moon Crystal Vision Session by Krista N. Mitchell / www.krista-mitchell.com

Hello dear one!

You will need to hold a quartz crystal for this vision session, though it is not required. Any size, shape, or form will do. Trust what you feel intuitively guided to hold.

Get settled and comfortable, close your eyes, hold your crystal.

And we begin…

What is your boldest dream?

Not fantasy, but dream, desire, soul-based or heart-centered wish?

It doesn’t have to be grandiose, but it could be something you keep thinking about, picturing, or wishing, but then dismiss as impossible.

The frequencies coming from this full moon keep telling me it IS possible!

So often we’re conditioned to train our thoughts on he reasons why not.

This moon is encouraging you to change from “Why not’s” to “What If?”

Corn Moon Card Blessing Ceremony

Happy Full Corn Moon, beauties!

New+Black+Moon+in+Leo+Moonthly+Energy+Reading+_+Corn+Moon.jpg
We hope this moon cycle has been fruitful with blessings and abundance!

Today we will show you how to bless any of your tarot and oracle decks with this powerful card blessing ceremony. Cleansing and blessing your cards periodically can help release stagnant energies and old readings from the cards so you can begin anew. But blessing them as well can amplify and expand your readings. And cards can really help us call in certain energies and archetypes we want to work with in our life!

 

20190812_120938

It is best to do this ceremony under a Full Moon because your intuition is heightened and the Full moon’s light amplifies and illuminates energies. The Corn moon also amplifies the blessings you are bestowing and calling in with your cards!

This ceremony pairs perfectly with our Spirit de la Lune deck (the Prism edition is still available!), but you can also use any tarot or oracle deck you feel called to work with.

Working with and Honoring the Sun at the Solstice

The Druid's Garden

Sacred rays of the sun Sacred rays of the sun

The sun’s rays come over the horizon, on the solstice, the most sacred of days. The solstice goes my many names, the day of high light, midsummer, Alban Hefin. Across the globe and through time, it has been celebrated since before recorded history. In the light of the sun, we have strength, warmth, growth, energy, abundance, healing, and wisdom. The sun has been shining down upon our beautiful planet has been shining for at least four billion years and we can expect it to remain unchanged for another five billion years. The sun is also enormous–it accounts for 99.86% of the mass of our solar system.  It is such an incredible thing that it’s hard to image in the scope of the sun as it compares to of human lives or human history.  You might say that the sun is one of the most…

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…

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…

TAURUS NEW MOON CRYSTALS: A RITUAL FOR YOUR LUSCIOUS LIFE

Taurus New Moon Crystals: A Ritual for Your Luscious Life

This new moon in Taurus invites you to look at the quality, not quantity, of your life.

Slow down, smell the spring flowers, wriggle your toes in the mud after a fresh, spring rain.

Reconnect with the Earth and all her splendorous glory.

There’s great magic in the Spring: the energy of fresh starts, the maiden goddess sowing her seeds of life, the feeling of hope that springs eternal.

We’re reminded to enjoy our lives, the world around us, in great ways and small. For life is fleeting, and precious.

Did any of you dance ‘round the Maypole on May 1st? Weave a wreath of flowers in your hair? Prepare your gardens for the growth of summer?

The old sabbat, Beltane, occurs on the 1st of May, and it initiates a powerful cycle of mysteries and magic – a portal that stays open until the summer solstice in June.

AND, we’re in a time when the sun is now waxing to full – there’s plenty of success vibes to go around, it’s all in how you direct them!

Taurus, ruled by the planet Venus, is a sign of wealth, abundance, beauty, earthiness, simplicity, love, sensuality, and grounding.

It’s interesting to note, too, that cows and bulls were often held sacred by the gods and goddesses of old. Zeus would transform himself into a bull. Brigid was accompanied by two white heifers. Helios had a sacred, beautiful herd kept by two of his daughters.

In runic lore, Taurus can be found in the symbol of fehu – again representing wealth, growth, plenty, status, fulfillment.

So, how can all of this glorious energy in this magical time find embodiment in your own life?

Severing Draining Energy Connections: Waning Moon Crystal Magic w/ Black Obsidian

 

The new and full moons have become powerful focal points in our community, but when we tune into the additional moon phases (the quarter moons), the magical rhythm of our lives can take on greater form and meaning.

We’ve now entered the 4th quarter or waning crescent moon (until the new moon on May 4th at 6:45pm).

This phase is a deep and internal time of facing that which we need to heal or release, or cultivate in the darker or more hidden parts of ourselves (psychic + intuitive development, past life or karmic healing, and banishment).

It’s timing is elegant and purposeful, because if we use it wisely, it empowers us for the new moon and our intentions.

Manifestation tip: The art of manifestation requires energy + focus. If your energy is split in too many directions in your life, or if it’s being too drained, there’s less potency available to help activate and manifest your intentions into being.

I’ve included a ritual below that will guide you through working with the energy of the waning crescent moon phase, and using a piece of black obsidian to sever draining energy connections that are pulling you away from your potential, holding you back from positive co-creation.

Embracing Ancestral Fires and Fire-starting at Beltane

The Druid's Garden

An awen-shaped sacred fire, created from my flint and steel An awen-shaped sacred fire, created from my flint and steel

The tiny sparks from my flint and steel shower down on my char cloth.  This flint and steel set was a gift from a fellow druid from almost a decade ago, a gift that has long offered me a connection with my ancestors.  It takes me a few moments to remember the technique he taught me, striking the steel against the flint in a particular way with a particulary angle to my body.  Starting a fire in an ancestral way isn’t just a mental act; its an emboded one.  I breathe deeply and remember, and the tiny sparks fly from my tools to the char cloth. After a few more attempts, a single spark lands on the cloth and starts to glow orange. I carefully pick up the char cloth and blow on it to increase the ember size, then…

Astrorisa Moon Forecast ~ Libra Full Moon ~4/19/2019

Astrorisa Moon Forecaster
Date: April 19, 2019
April 19, 2019
Time: 7:12 AM ET
Libra Full Moon 29° in House 6
Aries Sun 29° in House 12
April 19th Lunar Themes: Optimism, resourcefulness, inspiration, encouragement, a new creative start. Opportunity for growth, and increased communications. April 19th Lunar Shadow Themes: Broken agreements, negative attention, lack of commitment, a lack of drive, and gossip.
27 Day Libra Full Moon Themes: Opportunity, a developmental stage, all forms of partnerships, agreements and contracts. Negotiations, new locations, and moving. 27 Day Libra Shadow Full Moon Themes: Impatience, fear, dead end situations, domination, restriction, and travel difficulties.
This 2nd Libra/ Oshun Full Moon brings a dynamic moon time for many of us because it points towards the cosmic doorway leading to great abundance. The keyword is “abundance” we must be wise and alert to what type of abundance we’re creating or open to receive. Not all abundance is good, not all abundance is bad. Because an abundance of growth in any direction negative and positive is available to us. We must be careful not to run from our responsibilities.
During these 27 lunar days some people will have to address their fears. Fears regarding a need to change, the fear of trusting in their own abilities, the fear of making important decisions, the fear of loss and so on. Oshun/ Libra Moon 29° represents our internal collective drive and consciousness, and this specific type of Oshun/Libra moon’s persona longs for some form of freedom to experience. She enjoys holding her own, and she’ll create these experiences either through an act of grace or immoral force either way doesn’t concern her as long as her desire is met.
 Therefore, we too have an inner drive for change and balance and if we’re not careful our subconscious and conscious minds will create those adjustments and revolutions by any means necessary.
During these 27 lunar days some of us will struggle with combating our fear about reaching our individual and collective progression or success. This Oshun/Libra 29° moon can be the doorkeeper for dangerous times, and can herald a time of psychosis, a weak moral compass and problematic disruptive feminine and masculine energies. Both Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra are 29° and both planets are residing in houses which require a lot of personal attention and healing, houses 6 and 12. So we must be prepared for sudden changes, as well as standing guard against emotional and psychological tricks. The positive side of this Oshun/Libra 29° moon time is an increased ability to solve problems.
Upcoming Lunar Experiences and Expressions
Be Alert ~ Be Aware ~ Be Focused
 
1.)  Some people during these 27 days will find themselves in need of a good rest and a time out period. If we ignore these messages to rest during this lunar time, we may be forced to do so. Libra looks to rectify and balance all things, therefore some people will be ready to set down roots, either through marriage, a new home, moving to another location, or taking a needed vacation.
2.)  Some people will have an increased sensitivity to their environment, to food and their emotions, i.e. feeling ultra-sensitive. Libra in house 6 brings us face to face with our 5 senses which at this point becomes heighted and can trigger health issues, and sharper psychic abilities. But there’ll also likely be an increased awareness of what we personally need with the desire to create a happy, desirable space for ourselves and others.
3.)  Some people will likely experience major transformations which will either be liberating or caustic, fearful, and challenging. This is due to the karmic energy of Pluto’s influence on both the sun and moon which are squaring Pluto and creates a destiny changer for many of us.
Challenging Aspects
 
Moon (Yemoja)  square Pluto (Oya) -intense emotional expressions and experiences come under this transit. Manipulation, dangerous sexual passions, abuse, jealousy, and a devouring, destruction behavior can also manifest with this transit.

Sun (Sango/ Orunmila/ Olofi) square Pluto (Oya) -under this transit a person can become fearless to the point of being ruthless in their determination for authority, power, and control. Psychological issues once ignored can surface and will demand rectifying.

This moon and sun at 29° sits at the threshold of a cosmic door way which means any changes to happen in our lives is unavoidable. Something will have to be released in order for us to move forward. But when we are consciously aware of upcoming or ongoing shifts that are happening. We can choose to some degree what part we’ll play in this transformation.

Helpful Aspects
 
Moon(Yemoja) sextile Jupiter(Obatala) brings a sociable, friendly experience and a lot of positive energy. Generosity and friendship is strong under this transit.
 Venus (Oshun) sextile Pluto (Oya) draws intensive feelings of love, commitment, fulfillment and passion into one’s life. This aspect can increase the abundance of prosperity, and wealth. Whatever one wants to uncover, discover, or obtain this is the transit to put the work in to receive it.
Important Date: May 16, 2019

Discard both the candle and Palo Santo stick the day after your ceremony is completed by placing them in a brown paper bag and twist the ends shut. You can throw the bag in the trash away from the house or in the garbage directly outside of the house.
This moon ceremony is done to increase opportunities, and courage. To open doors of positive possibilities, to increase our ability to intuit divine messages, for protection and to confront fear. All done for our highest good.
For my Ausar Auset friends, the Herukhuti element shows up in this moon ceremony.
May you have a divinely loving, protective, and fearless full moon time.
