New Moon in Scorpio Lunar Report | Welcoming in Winter

This new moon in Scorpio kicks off a month of transformation. Scorpio is the psychic of the zodiac, and there is a lot happening in this sign this month.

Then moon in Scorpio can help awaken your innate psychic abilities. The first Quarter moon in Pisces will further enhance your psychic abilities and increase your sense of inner knowing. Venus moves into Scorpio this month as well which will deepen your emotions and sensuality.

We have a powerful full moon eclipse in Gemini this month as well which will have us looking within and without for new answers and truths… thenn the last quarter in the sign of Virgo might have us tending to our homes, clearing out the clutter and preparing for winter.

The nights are growing longer, and the days are growing colder and shorter as those of us in the Northern Hemisphere move into the months of winter.

This Cold Moon Cycle brings us some clarity and insight about ourselves and others, while also preparing us as we travel towards the colder darker months, preparing for a rebirth.

The Energies of November 2020

Good Witches Homestead

The full moon on October 31st brought the intensity of the energies last month to a head and neatly ushered us into November where the drama and energetic intensity look set to continue for at least another couple of weeks.

Negotiating high energy intensity can certainly bring its challenges but this particular energy flow is also replete with purpose and opportunity. The universe really does have our backs and is providing everything that we need to move gracefully through this period of change and transformation.

We just need to go with the flow and stay awake, aware and on purpose as best we can.

More Transformation

The astrology of 2020 has been both unusual and exciting, a situation created in part by the on/off conjunction of the two heavy weight planets, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.

November 12/13th will see the third and final meeting of these two highly influential…

Deepening the Wheel of the Year and Wildcrafting Druidry

The Druid's Garden

What is amazing about this wonderful planet we live on is the diversity of ecosystems, weather, climate, and life.  This diversity, however, can be challenging for those looking to adapt druidry or other nature-based spiritual practices to their practices.  Particularly challenging is the concept of the wheel of the year, especially if trying to apply the wheel of the year in a non-temperate climate setting. Thus, today’s post extends some of my earlier discussions about wildcrafting your own druidry, which include developing your own wheel of the year; in considering the role of observances, activities, and rituals; and in developing distinct symbolism for your work.  I’m going to continue this discussion today by talking about a further way to work with a seasonal approach from a wildcrafted and observational way and continue wheel of the year development!  So let’s get going!

EVER HAD A BAD REACTION TO A CRYSTAL?

Ever Had a Bad Reaction to a Crystal / www.krista-mitchell.com

So you get this new crystal and you’re excited to start working with it:

You wear it or meditate with it, but instead of feeling good from it, you feel off, or negative, or sick.

You have bad dreams, or get angry when you hold it, or some terrible memory surfaces.

Maybe you can’t sleep at all when it’s around. Or you get a bad headache. Or feel even more anxious, stressed, or depressed than before.

What gives? You thought crystals were supposed to help you feel better, not worse!

Having a bad reaction to a crystal is actually not so uncommon – it’s something I’m asked about on a weekly basis.

“What does it mean?” And, “what do I do with the crystal?”

I will always remember my first adverse reaction to a crystal: malachite. It was placed on my heart chakra in a healing session for 45 minutes, and for the next 3 days I was a complete and total hot mess. Despondent, depressed, crying, couldn’t leave my apartment. It was awful.

I asked the healer about it, and she replied: “Oh, well malachite draws repressed emotions to the surface, so that’s probably why.”

“You should have told me that first before placing it on me!” I cried. And then cried…

This is why I always caution my Pro Crystal Healer students that a) you can have a bad reaction to crystals, and b) you have to advise your clients, first, before using powerful crystals like malachite, moldavite, covellite, and other deep transformational stones in a healing session, and allow them the right to refuse if they don’t feel ready to handle the possible response.

And here’s another thing that I consistently caution to everyone working with healing stones: crystals can do harm.

Just because they’re natural does not automatically mean they’re good for you – think snake venom, poisonous berries, and toxic minerals. They’re all natural, too, but definitely not good for you.

Crystals can create imbalance just as easily as they can restore balance.

That being said, just because you’ve had an adverse reaction to a crystal does not necessarily mean that it’s doing you harm – sometimes the act of restoring balance only feels like it’s bad when it’s actually a good thing.

Let me explain…

Nature Mandalas for Inner Work, Rituals, and Blessings

The Druid's Garden

A woman comes to a clearing in the recently burned forest with a basket of stones, sticks, nuts, and flowers.  She begins to sing, laugh, and dance as she creates a beautiful circle with the materials. As she weaves her healing magic, the design of the circle grows more complex, spiraling inward and outward.  She finishes her work and sits with it quietly for a time, before leaving it in place to do its own work.  A healing mandala has been made on that spot, to help the forest recover after a fire.

Nature mandalas can be used for a variety of inner work, healings, blessings and rituals and are a wonderful addition to a druid or natural spiritual practice. Nature mandalas are an intuitive magical and bardic arts practice that works with the connection of your own subconscious to the living earth.  You use materials that are local to…

Creating Sacred Space

How’s the energy in your space

I’ve been thinking a lot about our spaces lately – in many ways they’ve become more important to us than ever, and a place where many of us are now spending most of our time (or not enough).

The space we live in is an energetic extension of ourselves. What affects us will affect the energy of our space (and vice versa).

In a time when we’ve seen a dramatic increase in fear, stress, uncertainty, and an outpouring of negativity, the more we can hold ourselves + our spaces sacred, the more we all benefit.

While we may all know the importance of clearing the energy of our space, it bears reminding, especially given that some may be feeling too overwhelmed or tired to prioritize it (it’s been my experience that this is when we most need to do it).
