Pineal Gland

secretsoftheserpent

One gland in our body that still has not given up its secrets is the pineal gland.  Science knows nothing about it.  They speculate about it.  Science understand that the pineal gland release chemicals into the body, but they don’t know why. They are busy trying to figure out how to control it.  Glands act as regulators, distributors and organizers of chemicals that influence our behaviors.  Here is the truth as to why science does what it does.  To influence our behavior.

Sacred Trees in the Americas – Spruce (Picea glauca, Picea pungens, Picea spp.)

The Druid's Garden

The beautiful blue spruce looking across the landscape The beautiful blue spruce looking across the landscape on a mountain in Western PA

When I lived in a walkable small town, what drew me every day was a line of beautiful blue spruce trees. Right around the corner from my house, they were on my daily walking commute to work.  We used to say hello and do an energy exchange each day. One day that following summer, I watched as the city landscaping people came through and ruthlessly cut them back away from the power lines (they were not growing even close to the lines) and I held space for the trees. Over the next few months, those trees began to heal, and they produced copious amounts of amazing tree resin as a first line of defense.  In the years that followed, eventually, the resin grew hard and the trees invited me to harvest small amounts that could be…

New Moon in Aries | Entering The Flower Moon Cycle

New Moon in Aries | Entering The Flower Moon Cycle | Spirit de la Lune

Happy New Moon in Aries!

This is our first New Moon of the spring season. The Aries energy offers us a chance to make a brave new start. To some, this might feel like a second chance.

This new moon is also in the middle of a Mars trine with Jupiter which brings in opportunities for abundance, good fortune, and positive energy.

We witness the Flower Moon during this cycle, and throughout the month of April we will feel more of the grounding Taurus energy take over. Though, the energy amps up a bit as we experience our first retrograde since February! This may cause many of us to undergo what feels like a transformation or rebirth.

Each new moon, using our planners and decks we put together the Moonthly Lunar Report to help us navigate the new moon cycle ahead.

A new moon in Aries ignites our imaginations and inspires us to be bold and daring with our intentions, giving us the energy needed to act on our goals.

Set an intention that challenges you to rise up and to grow and watch how much you truly do grow and expand this moon cycle! The new moon week is all about new beginnings and really visualizing new possibilities and opportunities that are available.

On the 13th the Sun sextiles Mars, who is the ruler of Aries, so this transit can really help illuminate your dreams and intentions and bring them into focus! This gives you a boost in your confidence, self esteem and courage.

This new moon is also in the middle of a Mars trine with Jupiter which brings positive energy, abundance and good fortune with it. This can also help you break free from the rut you may have been feeling while helping you make clear intentions you know you can follow through on.

Get Rid of the Negative

secretsoftheserpent

This Easter I thought I would give my readers a post on how to resurrect their own mind and life.  This post will go deep.  It is based on the teachings of mystery schools and the original teachings of Freemasonry.  This is forgotten knowledge but is still taught in esoteric circles.  Those who are on my site if not already awake are ready to awaken, so I think most are ready for this post.  It is a deep dive into how to change our world for the better.  The way we have been has been a failure.  Time to resurrect success.

Druid Tree Workings: Finding and Working with Grandmother Trees

The Druid's Garden

The Ancient Maple - An Elder of the Land The Ancient Maple – Grandmother Tree.  This grandmother lives in a middle of a rock pile.  the three branching trunks signify she may have been cut at one time and regrew. Grandmothers can be stubborn!

A grandmother is a really special person. I remember going to my grandmother’s house when I was a little girl–it was literally my favorite place to go. My grandmother and I would go to the thrift store and buy used clothing, then spend the morning sewing doll clothes and repurposing those old clothes for amazing new clothes for me–skirts that swirled out wide and colorfully printed tops.  We’d go out into the garden and pick herbs, and she’d cook up an incredible pot of mushroom soup.  She was full of generosity and love and always fostered my creativity and joy.  My other grandmother was quite different–she was a bit of a firecracker, sassy and short-tempered…

Druid Tree Workings: Principles for Establishing Deep Relationships with the Trees, Part I

The Druid's Garden

Trees provide an abundant amount of resources…shelter, food, fire, friendship–but they also as this blog has shown, can work various forms of magic through their energetics, through their lore, through their divinatory meanings.  They are some of the most kind, giving, and accessible beings on the landscape, and certainly a place to not only begin a nature spiritual practice but deepen it over time. As I’ve written on this blog, working with the trees must be a matter of exchange–honoring them, treating them as elders, listening to their stories and songs–and if you want to work tree magic, this magic requires us to be in a sacred relationship with the trees.  I’ll be doing a short series on how to establish, maintain, and grow relationships with plants and trees.

In this first post of this new series, we are going to focus on the concept…

An Enchantment Spell for this Full Planting Moon

Spirit de la lune full planting moon

This Full Planting Moon is the first of 4 super moons in a row this year. This is also the first full moon of the astrological new year.

The energy has been intense leading up to this full moon. Establishing order, healing of old wounds and trying to maintain and establish harmony might be some major themes for you right now.

There are some powerful lessons with this moon. It is opposite Venus, trine Saturn and opposite Chiron. The Moon will also make a perfect triangle configuration to both Saturn and Mars, known as a Grand Trine.

This Full Moon is opposite Venus which can increase your need for love and affection, helping us connect to others on deeper levels. Be careful that with this vulnerability you don’t give into things like jealousy or obsession or codependency.

The Moon is trine Saturn, which gives us the patience, inner strength and wisdom to handle any of the obstacles that might come with the intense energies of this full moon.

Chiron, the wounded healer is conjunct the Sun and Venus, and opposite the moon right now too, so there are some unhealed wounds that might be making themselves known to you right now. These might come in the form of new experiences that hold similar energy to a past event.

You might feel like your healing is going backwards, but trust that it is cyclical. Trust in the seeds you’ve planted in the past. Trust in your inevitable period of blooming.

The full moon is also known as the Planting Moon. The Seed has sprouted. Life is flowing and growing wild.

The Planting Moon brings you back to Earth. Prepare your garden so your dreams can grow. Spiritually and quite literally.

For this earthy full moon, we are reconnecting with Gaia- the plant allies, crystal companions and our ritual from last month by completing our witches garden.

If you haven’t planted any seeds yet, no worries! There is still plenty of time. If you did already plant your seeds, they might be big enough to be moved to a bigger planter.

But before we transplant plant our seeds, we are going to create a dedicated planter to hold them and help them grow.

To Be or Not To Be

secretsoftheserpent

There are three paradigms that I categorize people in. Most are stuck in the first two with few being in the third. Those paradigms are having, doing, and being. The having paradigm people think they have it or they don’t. Doing paradigm is where people think they have to do something to get a result. The last one is being where just by being who you are things happen automatically. You can audit these by seeing what it is you are doing by trying to become enough. These paradigms are not bad in themselves. I am just bringing awareness to you so you can bring awareness to them in your life.

Maturity

secretsoftheserpent

We seem to think that the older the more mature we become. To most people time is only a killer. They never become more mature.   Maturity has to do with the mind.  The integrity of our mind.  A person living on a level of a realistic integrity relating to his humanity.  We as humans our part of Nature.  Being part of Nature we are under her laws.  It is our reaction to Natural law that determines how mature we are.
