Astrorisa Moon Forecaster: Power Date June 17, 2018 (from the Sag. Forecast)

By AstrorisaMoon

In The Loft

Hello Moon Followers and Subscribers!
Happy Father’s Day!
 


A Power Date: June 17, 2018
From the Sagittarius Full Moon Forecast May 29, 2018
On this power date of June 17th both  the moon and ASC will be in the sign of Leo, but the moon will reside in house 12.
The Moon is opposite Mars on this date. 
 


This is the aspect that ignites the Ego, there’s frustrations, and power struggles, here everyone in the room is the King or Queen and whatever is manifesting amongst the group, each person behaves as though, their reality is the most important reality at that moment. Therefore, this is a day one should be very humble. All important dates that are
mentioned during these moon forecasts are dates that are usually destiny changer dates. Be humble, as some issues from the past can be thrown up in our faces, or something unfinished from the past comes back and is likely upsetting for some. This is a time to connect with an earth centered person who is mature and can bring to the table a broader perspective, and offer some needed clarity about how to handle the situation. Avoid making a rash permanent decision, some more information is likely to come and a rash permanent decision without that information can be a huge setback.

For others, this date can bring a favorable outcome, an ongoing challenge can receive a supportive and amicable judgement or decision. Check the oracle to verify if this is the best date for you, if you must receive a judgment of some kind. June 17th  brings forward a helpful ear and unexpected favor for many.

Ancestral Remembrance: An Introductory Weekend

Ancestral Apothecary

Join Erin Caitlin Sweeney, MA and Marisol Castillo, MA for an introduction weekend of ancestral remembrance. The stories of our ancestors live within us, they are in our bones, in our blood. Their wisdom and their wounds, their grief and their beauty, have all been passed down to us. Our wise and loving ancestors are calling to us – asking to be seen, to be remembered, and they’re offering their support to guide us on our healing journeys. We will create safe and sacred space to explore the wounds in our ancestral lineages and how they have manifested within us. We will remember our innate connection with the natural world and we will learn that we all have ancestors who practiced earth-based spirituality. We will learn how to create relationships of reciprocity with our ancestors and the Earth. We will come together in community to honor our ancestors and take…

Introvert and Empath

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Being a sensitive makes a person highly sensitive to the energy and emotional energy swirling all around them, which naturally tends to make them withdraw socially and for other to withdraw in intervals from social situations, or festivals etc. Sensitive’s and Empath’s can be both introverts or extroverts. Introverts usually associating themselves with being unsocial, but that isn’t 100% true. I have seen many introverts change as they get older, but carry childhood scripts that they are anti-social.
 
People can also fall under the “extroverted introvert” who can socially function well but definitely need their retreat time, to full recharge without others around. They must have their amount of quiet time. Younger introverts may need more time away from people because they are young, especially those under 30. There are many misconceptions about being an introverted or extroverted. Its not an all or nothing…

Birth Place Elements On Your Altar

The Witch & Walnut

birth-placeearthelements.pngNot everyone represents the elements on their altars, just like not everyone represents Gods on their altars. But if the Elements are your thing, I hope you enjoy this insight and take it into consideration.

There are so many ways to represent the Earth Element and there is no rule on how many displays or items you have that represent this element. We take time to gather dirt, rocks, fallen leaves, bark, roots and flowers…… we honor them, leave offerings for them and charge them.

How can we take this a step further and make it more personal? A little more background story to explain…..

My grandmothers altar was a do not touch anything zone. Even though it was my job as a child to collect different items for her that represent all the elements, once I handed them over that was it. Not mine anymore, I understand the lesson…

Third New Moon of Spring

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings Dreamers, Moon People, Artists and Healers, we begin our last New & Full Moon of Spring on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Spring is ruled by the Maiden and the first Season of the year so according to the natural or natures year, we all get our new beginning. Our last month’s intention and experiences, if you were paying attention, will set the foundation for this month’s new moon. The last moon cycle of each of the four Seasons brings a solution and resolve to what you have been working on in your healing journey for three months. If you are new, please read the directions for the moon work.

Some of us are in ending phases, which can take about eight years to complete, and during this time we may set our sights on our new beginning and find road blocks along our way. For others, you…

Decorating with Crystals for Memorial Day

By Tara Mideaker

In the late 1800’s, “Decoration Day” was established to commemorate those soldiers who had given their lives during the Civil War.  The name derives from flowers and other decorative items that were placed on the gravesites.  As we moved into the 20th Century, May 30th was set aside to memorialize all service men and women who had died while in the armed forces and Memorial Day was adopted as a National Holiday.  This day has continued to evolve and today it serves as a remembrance of all those loved ones who have passed on.  Celebrated on the last Monday of May, it also serves as the unofficial start of the summer season and is best known for parades, fireworks and, of course, barbecues.

There are many religions and cultures who believe that when we pass on from this life we move into the “Summerland”, a place of endless beauty and peace. It is interesting that, perhaps subconsciously, we have adopted a day where we remember those we have lost while at the same time welcoming the summer season.  Throughout its many evolutions, Memorial Day has always been a time to enjoy food and activities with our family and friends.  Maybe the intent of this day was always about finding the joy in each of our lives – even while we mourn our losses.

Here are a few suggestions on how to use crystals to honor someone with your own “Decoration Day” tradition.  Decoration means “to beautify or embellish” and crystals are one of nature’s most beautiful decorations.  The perfect crystal will remind you of the happy times while at the same time helping to you heal from your loss.

ALTAR:  Creating an altar is a traditional and practical way to remember your loved one.  Be sure to find a quiet place and insure that the focus of the space will be respected.   Include items that remind you of your loved one – photos, flowers, statues or knick-knacks, candles, and even jewelry.  Just be sure that the items you choose remind you of joyful times and how that person lived their life.  You want this altar to celebrate their life more than a reminder that they are gone.   Amber has a very strong life-affirming energy that will be a very positive addition to your memorial.  It is a powerful healer and will enable you to manifest the happiest of thoughts and memories.  Snowflake Obsidian is a very calming & supportive crystal that is particularly helpful when you are grieving.  Its very appearance of black and white reminds us that there is a balance to life and that while it is okay to feel sad, it is just as important to remember how to be happy.

CEMETERY:  While visiting a cemetery or final resting place of your loved one, a Rhodochrosite will offer comfort and compassion and remind you of the love that you shared.  It will help to release any old, damaging emotions and enable you to move on in a positive light. Aqua Aura is a natural attractor for positive energy and promotes communications at all levels.  You might want to leave a small Aqua Aura by the site to add beauty and enhance the energy of the area.

TAKE A TRIP:  This is my favorite way to remember a loved one.  My Mom passed away several years ago and recently we remembered her by going to one of her favorite places.  It not only reminded me of the love and fun that we shared but also helped me to share the kind of person that she was with my son.  It was a positive, life-affirming activity that left me smiling at the end of the day.  I think that is how all of us really want to be remembered.  So go out and have some fun!  Go to the beach or the park or wherever you will have the best possible memories of the times that you shared with those that have passed.  Carnelian is a powerful stone for really feeling the life that is all around you.  It increases your personal power and physical energy while reminding you it’s great to be alive.  Amethyst will enhance your spirituality and help you to see the higher beauty and purpose in all things.

Walking the Path of the Ovate: Building Localized Ecological Knowledge

The Druid's Garden

Rocky Maine Shore at Sunrise Rocky Maine Shore at Sunrise

Everything changes in this wild place. The ebb and flow of the tides drives the ecology on this rocky shore. The landscape abruptly changes its appearance based on proximity to the sea and elevation. Firs and spruces dominate along with a groundcover of laurel and blueberry. Even old friends, like birch, maple, and beech, take on new skin. The mountain peaks offer a desert-like climate where air and fire dominate. I am in this wild place, letting it seep into my bones, into my breath, into my spirit. Desipte the books on ecology I’ve purchased, I really have no idea what I’m seeing, no real knowledge of the deeper mystery of this land and shore. Books cannot teach that kind of wisdom, only time and experience can. My eyes physically see, but I am seeing without any real understanding of what it is that is…

An American Ley Line Network: A Ritual of Creation

The Druid's Garden

This past weekend, we had a delightful time at the 2nd OBOD Mid Atlantic Gathering of US(or MAGUS). It was a wonderful weekend full of positive energy, community, and celebration of the land. I was involved heavily in the ritual planning and work this year and was the gathering’s keynote speaker, and we once again did a Galdr ritual (a chanting ritual) using Ogham (sacred trees). This year’s theme was “Sacred Time, Sacred Space” and as part of this work, we decided to re-enchant the land by establishing a new ley line network. We are co-creating a new ley line network across the land.

Motherstone at Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary Motherstone at Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary

The overall goal of this ritual was to re-enchanting our landscape, connecting sacred spaces and creating sacred spaces across the landscape, and connecting our broader druid community. The work involves empowering, connecting, and eventually, dispersing a set of stones…
