Healing with the 13 Moons of Nature’s Seasons and Her Bird Tribe Women

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –  This is my personal capsulized short share of how I completed my fated life this lifetime as a dreamer (shaman), to return the 13 moons of the original prehistory lunar tribe of woman and brought it into a real practice and now this year offer it to the general public. The 13th Moon is a cyclical event, and she balances out the yearly seasons by appearing in cycles, but not every year. My Lunar Calendar that put together is the basis of my free lunar work-study here at Elder Mountain Dreaming, and also my life. I couldn’t really share this until the last moon, that 13th moon appeared as a real final ending to my fate. She is the mystery of the 13 moons.

This is because for millions of years we lived by the lunar seasons with mother earth and the 13 moons…

CRYSTALS FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE + THE PISCES NEW MOON

Crystals for Mercury Retrograde + the Pisces New Moon

We have a sun and moon in Pisces, Mercury went retrograde at 1:19pm ET today, AND, for some lucky countries, there’s also a time zone change happening at 2am ET this Sunday…

This is going to be fun! 🤪😱🤯🤬😵

My advice to the whole planet for the next 23 days: GROUND! GROUND! GROUND!

While many people focus on the negatives when in Mercury retro, there are a lot of positive aspects, but in order to benefit from them you need to be able to stay grounded and go with the flow.

Best crystals for this: crystals that link the intuitive power of the 3rd eye chakra with the grounding and stabilizing power of the root chakra.

Your intuition is going to be very powerful during this Piscean time, anyway, but by grounding its guidance in your root chakra it will be easier for you to follow it and be guided through this phase smoothly.

Feeling centered and grounded in your root chakra is also what will help you to feel more confident and empowered in going with the flow, and to help you keep on top of things.

Druidry for the 21st Century: Pandora’s Box and Tools for the Future

The Druid's Garden

The story of Pandora’s box has always been a favorite of mine, ever since I was little.  Pandora was so curious. She just had to open the box. She just had to. And when she did, she let out all the bad things in the world: suffering, pain, war, famine, pestilence, betrayal….but she also let out one good thing: she let out hope.

I think when we start talking about the present and the future of the world-its kind of like being inside Pandora’s Box. It seems that more and more reports come out, more and more news comes out, and the longer that things go on, we keep being surrounded by all the bad things. Ten or fifteen years ago, perhaps these things could be ignored.  But today, I don’t think there is any more time for that. The reports, like the recent National Climate Assessment, don’t often…

March Birthstones – Zodiac Gemstones: Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Topaz, & more!

Good Witches Homestead

There are two gemstones on the modern birthstone list which connect with March and they are Aquamarine and Bloodstone. Aquamarine is a beautiful gemstone with rich color – it is known to be a symbol of youth, health, and hope. Aquamarine’s color ranges from stunning blues that can have a touch of green to intense shades that display depth in tone and color. It is a lovely stone that makes beautiful jewelry and gives a wonderful accent to spring and summer wardrobes.

Bloodstone is characterized by its dark green color and the presence of red, blood-like inclusions, which is how it earned its descriptive gemstone name. Bloodstone was once the original birthstone for March, but it was later replaced by aquamarine. Today, bloodstone is still an alternative birthstone for March and it is the zodiacal stone for Aries. Bloodstone is said to be a healing stone. Bloodstone works well in…

Slavic Faceless Doll Talisman and its Magical Powers

Elder Mountain Dreaming

In ancient times, the Slavs took making doll talisman quite seriously. Dolls were the main charms, as each carried out their “duties”. Most identified with the image of female deities and goddesses, dolls like Zernushka was “responsible” for a good harvest. But to grow and harvest food is only half the battle. The harvest should provide a comfortable life and prosperity in the home and to do this without the doll Bogatka (Great Tit song bird)does not work, our ancestors believed this.

At its base, the doll had a wand also called a column, for which it was also called Stolbushka (same as Motanka Doll). For full prosperity in the house it was necessary to ensure that the doll was not bothered to fulfill its “duties”, it was hidden from prying eyes and could even be kept on an altar.

Slavic doll talisman not only decorates the interior or played with by children, they have always…

CRYSTAL POWER FOR THE NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS: BECOMING

Aquarius New Moon Crystals / krista-mitchell.com

 

So after months of shifting, releasing, facing things, planning… Isn’t it nice to be emerging into energy that’s all about us BECOMING?

If you’re ready for the good times to roll, then start rolling, because by many accounts this is an auspicious new moon especially for new projects!

Of course, as is always the case with Universal energy, it’s all in how you use it.

Aquarius represents the mind, the greater good, the sum of the parts, the group vs. the individual. It is a sign of humanitarianism, selflessness, and ideals.

As is mirrored by the energy of this new moon, we’re in a place now where, having done the work, we can forge new paths and open up to new ways of being.

The challenge is in grounding all of this mental energy: We need to pursue the plans we’ve made and the ideas we’re having in order for them to happen. And we also need to be mindful of overcoming any fear or resistance that may come up in response to the newness of it all.

I freely admit that, while I have been consciously working towards all of this in my own experience, there’s also a fear popping up of who I will BE in this new paradigm of mine. What will my life be like, what will I be like? It’s unchartered territory which is exciting but also shoves me out of my comfort zone. And my ego really likes my comfort zone.

It’s a very human, unconscious fear of change and of the unknown. But while that fear feels it’s serving to protect me, I know it will only succeed in holding me back and keeping me from feeling happier and more fulfilled.

Does any of this resonate for you?

If so, my Akashic guides have some advice and also a little experiment for you to for this lunar cycle!

The Energies of February

Good Witches Homestead

As February begins, we find ourselves feeling a little bemused as to how January has managed to slip past quite so fast but definitely enjoying the lengthening daylight hours and the promise they hold that spring is not too far away. Before we get to that though, February seems set on living up to its reputation as being one of the coldest months of winter with low temperatures and snow on the menu for most of us for the next little while.

The start of February is the midpoint between the December solstice and the March equinox, an occasion traditionally marked by the Celtic fire festival Imbolc, a celebration that honors the slowly returning light in the northern hemisphere. The corresponding festival for those in the southern hemisphere is Lammas, which traditionally celebrates the gathering in of the first fruits of the year’s harvest.  Chinese New Year will be celebrated…

SOME POST-ECLIPSE CRYSTAL + AKASHIC GUIDANCE

By Krista Mitchell

Post-Eclipse Crystal + Akashic Guidance / krista-mitchell.com

Hello everyone! Recovering from that epic full moon eclipse this past week?

Key word seems to be PURGE – a lot of things coming up for people to heal and release.

In turn, this has created clarity, space, and focus on how we lead our lives, which we can now use to co-create a new, different, or better reality!

What’s exciting is that in less than two weeks we have THREE occurrences ushering in energy to support our new paradigms:

Imbolc, from the evening of February 1st – 2nd, is a Goddess festival celebrating the return of the maiden Spring and a blessing of the land. I’ll be writing more about this for you next week!

The new moon in Aquarius on Monday the 4th.

The Lunar New Year (year of the piggie-wiggie!) on the 5th.

BUT FIRST! Before we gallop gaily into fresh pastures, we need to make sure we’re on solid ground.
