Whether it was the full moon, a few extra tasks that needed immediate tending in my already packed days or just a fluke I can’t be entirely sure.
But what I do know is that my worst moments were the two days before the Full Moon and as soon as that moon hit its peak, I did too.
I crashed. I required stillness and quiet. The universe provided me with several unexpected hours of emptiness. I did not work. I did not return calls. I rested. I watched a little TV. I cried. And that was all I needed to refuel.
Some moons hit us harder than others.
How did this last week land for you, Wise Ones?
When we start to follow the cycles of the moon, paying attention to its ebb and flow, we begin to notice that some of these cycles are reflected in us.
We might discover that one phase influences us more than another. We might discover we are more connected to that lunar vibe than we ever realized.
Some of you may already be following that lunar rhythm. Some of you might even be leaning into the energy it offers by timing spells and rituals to sync up with the moon phase.
Here are some ideas for working with the lunar energy.
Want to set an intention?
The New Moon offer a perfect pause before growth to do just that.
Want to call something in? Grow an idea? A project?
The Waxing Moon nourishes that growth energy.
Want to super charge or cleanse something?
The Full Moon can support both of these things. Its intensity can help you surrender and let go just as it can add its energy to a culmination or raising of a vibration.
Are you ready to banish or reduce something in your life?
The Waning Moon lends its reduction to these practices.
So the next time you find yourself wanting to cast a spell or perform a ritual, take a peek at where the moon is at in her journey and add her energy to the mix.
As you may already know, I offer monthly New and Full Moon rituals in my Diving Deeper Membership. And I am now offering them as a subscription all on their own.
For those of your that might be interested in just the Lunar ceremonies, you now have a way to access these without the full Diving Deeper Membership.
The Moon Ritual Subscription gives you access to all the live moon rituals and their replays.
Curious? Get 50% off your first month using promo code MOON50 at checkout.
Our next ritual is for the New Moon and we will gather to celebrate March 1st!
The 2 of Swords
When you look at that picture above, what story do you tell yourself about it?
What feelings come up? What thoughts?
Some of you might know that the 2 of swords is my favorite Tarot card. It is a reminder to me that often the only obstacle in my way is myself.
It says that although sometimes I feel like I can’t see a situation clearly, or I’m feeling blocked or stuck and powerless too, all I have to do is set the damn swords down and take off the blindfold.
We are so good at blocking ourselves and much of the time we don’t even realize it.
My Tarot deck is excellent at offering me new ways to look at situations and posing questions that need to be pondered. (Even when I don’t want to ponder them.)
My Tarot deck is not only good at offering up insight, but it is also a powerful tool for our imaginative realms.
Come tell your story! Once Upon a Time…a writing workshop that uses Tarot as a guide.
Using our Tarot decks, our creativity, some carefully crafted writing prompts and a little bit of magic, we will tell a tale that reaches backward and forward through time and helps us discover a little more about ourselves and the journey we are each on.
We will also discover our lifetime cards and year cards to help us root more deeply into the main character of our story. Ourselves!
This 2 hour class is being offered Saturday February 26th at 9 am PT.
Bring your favorite Tarot deck, pen, paper, open heart and mind and write with me!
(want to join but only have Oracle decks? Don’t worry, that will work just fine)
Sign up today and I’ll see you Saturday!
I'd like to leave you with the question, what is your favorite Tarot card? And why?
