By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – My progressed moon is now in Gemini for the next two years and this is the second time in my life, because progressed Moons and Saturn returns follow the same timed cycle. Its progressing through my 8th house, where all the Gemini fixed stars sit in my chart, and its been a wonderful opportunity for first hand experience to see how this complicated sign and its ruler Mercury works in both this world, in my dreaming and inbetween both. For perspective and preface, the first time my Moon progressed into Gemini was on Christmas Day 1990, about a year after my first Saturn return.
At that time the beginnings of Uranus concatenate Neptune, and they were on my natal Mercury (11 Cap). Needless to say I was feeling quite lucid and because I had already started having out of bodies and astral travel…

This week I have had several people come to me asking questions about religion. They heard that I was the ‘expert’ on the subject and wanted to talk to me. I asked, “What do you want to know?” To which they replied, “Everything!” What they don’t understand and what a lot of readers that come across this site don’t under stand is, ‘You must make sure you are ready!’

This Full Moon takes place on the 19th of February and is also a Supermoon!
This is the second Supermoon in a series of three, (we will have another supermoon in March!) but this Supermoon is also the biggest Supermoon of the year!
Pretty cool compared to February of 2018 having no full moon at all!
A Supermoon is when the moon orbits closest to the Earth, making the moon appear larger in the sky, thus amplifying the lunar energies and our emotions.
The moon is symbolic of our inner world, our intuition and our emotions, and this one is the Planting Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune deck. It’s important to take note of what you are “planting” right now!
This Supermoon in Virgo represents a very potent time for manifestation and achieving our goals… Especially with it taking place in 0º which holds total raw potential for new beginnings.
This Full Moon is adventurous and exciting holding lots of opportunities for change. Be on the lookout for good news and a sense of things coming together.
Our last New Moon post talked about answers coming and things finally falling into place… to help make that happen, we’ve put together a special ritual for this Full Moon!
We will be combining several earth elements into an intention oil and then using it to anoint an intention infused candle!
You can do this ritual on the days preparing for the full moon, or on the full moon! Preparing the oil a day ahead can be helpful, but it’s not needed!

Druidry is rooted in relationship and connection with the living earth: the physical landscape and all her plants and creatures, the spirits of nature, the allies of hoof and claw, fin and feather. The land and her spirits are our primary allies and energies with which we work as druids. The question I keep coming back to is this: how do I practice a nature-centered path in a time when nature–those of the hooves, fins, feathers, and claws–are going extinct and dying all around me? How do I practice druidry when everything that I hold sacred and love is under severe threat, and when it is likely that in my lifetime, I will witness severe ecological collapse in multiple ecosystems. How do I practice druidry with my “eyes open” to all of this, and honor nature in this great extinction event, and still say sane? How do I do this…

Tricksters usually have a great degree of intellect and knowledge. They use their wisdom to play tricks on people and other gods. They usually disobey rules and most conventional thinking or behavior. In stories the Tricksters can be a woman, man, god, spirit, goddess or any other type of entity. What were the ancients trying to tell us with Tricksters? What do they symbolize?

Most see discipline as punishment. Just like grounding, we have the wrong perspective and if you have the wrong perspective your magic will not work. Grounding in magic is getting out and touching the earth. Discipline in magic has nothing to do with punishment. My coach on my High School basketball team used to tell a couple of guys that they have no discipline and unless they get it, they will never succeed. Magic is the same way. You must have discipline.

Calling down energy from above is a useful skill to learn in energy work, because it allows you to connect yourself to higher sources of energy, so that you will be able to use that energy source in your practice to charge constructs, and to empower yourself. This technique opens up connection with the higher planes of existences, your higher self, and to source allowing you to use that higher energy in your energy work. This practice is like a reverse form of grounding where instead of grounding to the Earth, and the physical plane, you connect yourself to your higher being, and higher spiritual planes. This process is primarily done for the bringing down of more energy when it is needed, and it is a simple technique that can be made more complicated as you figure out better ways of using it.
How to call down energy:
1) First you’re going to want to find a comfortable position, whether that be…

Energy breathing is an energy working technique that is used to bring energy into your body, and expel negative energy from the inside. This breathing technique can also be used in order to focus your mind, while you go through the process of also allowing your energetic flow to be strengthened, and cleansed throughout your body. This technique is very simple, and can be done anywhere at anytime and can be combined with the practices of centering, and grounding.
1) Begin this practice by sitting, standing or laying in a relaxing position, then proceed to close your eyes.
2) Visualize the energy flowing throughout the inside of your body as a blue mist.
3) Now begin deep breathing, Inhale through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. As you do this visualize breathing in more bright blue mist on your inhale, and on exhale blowing out black dark smoke. On inhale…
