7 Ways to Harness the New Moon & End of the Year Energy.

magic dustIt’s the new moon and the end of the year.   This moon feels like a good one to get organized, ready and focused for the New Year.  Each New Year feels like an energetic fresh and slate and this New Moon is helping us prep for this.  In preparation of the fresh energy ahead, I usually cleanse out the energy of my home and release the energy of the past year.  I let go of things I no longer need, have out grown and make space for new life and new energy to enter because my friends there will be new things coming, change of some sort and we must create space for that.  I know change can be tough but it’s tougher if we fight what is because usually the energy forces its way into our lives drastically if we don’t allow it naturally to unfold, gently and lovingly.  There is a Divine Plan…trust that and the universe, She always has your back 🙂

Here are some ways to prepare the energy in your home and close the energy of this year and celebrate the New Moon as we are in the Capricorn energy.  Let’s get organized…organized…dah… dah… dah… dah…organized…organized…(just what Capricorns love)

  • Clean out your closets.  Go through your clothes and remove all the ones you don’t wear.  Donate what you no longer need.  This goes for your pantry and linen closets as well.  Get rid of old food or spices you no longer use.

 

 

  • Go through your email and clean it up. Delete, delete, delete… what you no longer need!  I recently did this and unsubscribed to a truck load of sites as it was simply clogging up my email accounts.  It was so freeing.  I had 3000 emails, now I have fewer than 50.  I also created folders and categorized and filed emails that I need to hang on to.

 

  • I know, I know it’s kind of the last thing you want to do but cleanse out the old dirt of the year.  Vacuum, wash the floors and if you can allow a fresh breeze of air to flow through your home.  It’s winter here, snow, ice, freezing, but I still open the windows to allow the winter breeze to fly through and cleanse out what is there, even for a few brief moments.

 

  • Clean your entrance and doorway. Wipe the door, wash the floor, re-arrange furniture, put away the pile that gets stored at the entrance.   Sweep out the floor and old energy and allow new energy and prosperity to enter.  You’ll feel the effects instantly!!

 

  • Go through paper work that needs to be filed or thrown out. Get organized. Burn what you no longer need and feel the old releasing in the flames.

 

  • Clean out your purse and wallet. Make sure receipts are not filed in the place you store your money.  That is a no-no.  Do not place bills where money is suppose to flow.

 

  • Remove all your garbage and recycling from your home.  If you’re like us and live in the sticks make a trip to the dump and recycling depot.  If you live in town or city just try and place it outside or garage until it can be picked up but before the New Year.  I even dropped off an old and broken printer at an e- recycling station.  I’ve been meaning to do this for a year!

 

Clearing out the old is so refreshing may you enjoy the new space and energy that comes with releasing and cleansing out the old.  🙂

  • As an additional note, I feel inspired to make a collage of what I want to invite and fell and experience in my life in 2017.  Use some of the holiday cards, words, poems, images, that speak to you and tap into your creativity and allow it to fill you up as we end the energy of the year and start the New Moon cycle.

Now, we are ready to welcome in the energy of 2017.

Aries Full Moon Ritual.

fullmoonoctWell isn’t this an intense filled, possible life changing, soul directing Full Moon?!  It’s been an intense week for me, I’ve dropped to my knees a few times feeling overwhelmed, tired, lost, even confused.  My howling soul is desperately trying to guide me through these feelings and my job is to sit with them. It’s friggen’ tough to sit in overwhelm or the sense of uncertainty.  It feels like the floor is gone and a tornado is destroying my insides.  But I breathe through it and try and tell the feelings I see them, I hear them, I honor them and plop myself beside them.

This is an Aries Full Moon,  Aries is the first sign of the zodiac.  Aries is leader of the pack attitude, a go-getter, action oriented people.  They are independent and like to take orders from themselves, not other people.

This Full Moon energy is fueling our souls need to lead us.  It is howling and ferociously scratching upon us from the inside.  If you’ve been teary, overwhelmed, lost, unsure but yet feel something deep stirring on the inside, this moon has shot its’ moon beams your way.  Try and embrace this, see these struggles as sign posts to dig inwards and find what is lurking at your depths.  What wants to emerge?  What part of you is calling for release into your life?  See your wild soul there and have a conversation with Your Divine Essence.  What is your wild asking of you?  How is She trying to direct you forward to your soul path and soul sustenance?

I pulled a Tarot card for this Full Moon in Aries and got the New Beginnings Major Arcana card.  It traditional decks it is the Fool card.  So fitting.  This is exactly what this moon is igniting in our own soul.

“This card represents that a great new adventure is awaiting you.  It usually shows up when there’s a significant inner change happening within you…Life is constantly trying to nudge and move you forward…During this time don’t be alarmed if you feel lost or even confused.  Most people are afraid of change and play it safe by staying where they are.  Know that through inner guidance, wisdom and a belief in yourself-and by tapping into those tools-you’ll be propelled forward on a positive, life changing path.”  (Adapted from the Psychic Tarot)

This is exactly how I feel unsure of where I’m headed but feel a great need for change, something is brewing, something is stirring.  I’ve been researching farm houses, coffee shops, Etsy stores.  I’m being guided somewhere new but I’m not fully sure where or what that is.  I’m seeing glimpses and allowing the Universal energies to simply lead me, I’m asking to be shown…and sometimes sitting in stagnation helps rattle the energies because we can’t tolerate the stale so we look for what is trying to be shaken loose within us.

Full Moon Ritual

Light some candles, spark up the incense and close your eyes, take some deep, calming breaths.  Return to your calm, soul nourishing place inside.  Maybe it’s a sunset beach or a snow covered mountain. Just let yourself sit there and be there for awhile.  Inhale in the wise and inspiring energies.  Wherever you are allow in image of the new adventure that is calling your energy and wants to take shape come forward.  Allow it to come alive in the soil, or water, or trees, or mountains, or fire…where-ever you are use what is around you for the image to emerge.  See it, maybe there are many facets of it, or just pieces of it, allow what comes, don’t make sense of it, just receive the image or images. Draw or color the image, even a small doodle helps in your journal.  Now let’s ask it some questions.

What is the first step I need to take and focus on right now?

What do you need to tell me?  What can I do to help you manifest in my life?

Where can I find you?

How do I keep stepping towards you?

And so it is my friends.  Happy New Beginnings with this Full Moon!  Yahoooooooooooooooooo.  How exciting if you let it.

July New Moon Ritual – Tap into Your Feminine Energy

Happy New Moon!!!womb

What can you say about this new moon? The energies feel fresh, like a new pattern forming. Last moon’s full moon broke us free from the stuckness, we became un-tethered and in some ways we still are, but there’s a freedom, a newness, a brand new energy coming in as a result.  Freedom….freedom….freedom!!!

This moon is a Cancer New Moon is about “initiating”. (Inspired by New Moon in Cancer: A New Step Forward. (http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/07/03/new-moon-in-cancer-a-new-step-forward/ )  It’s also about family, love,connection, emotion, water, intuition…the feminine side of life.

“Initiating”…this word really stung me. Initiating the changes, the healing, the life force energies waiting for you to direct them.  There is still healing we are doing, still conversations and new directions to take but we have certainly got the ball rolling and good on ya’.

I sit here at 38 weeks pregnant, waiting, hoping for my baby to arrive.  Today seems like a beautiful day for that..the new moon.  Time will tell 😉

I can not wait, I’m buzzing with anticipation and excitement and yet I know the labour will be a painful transition but the new life, new love, the new form, the new family patterns await.  This feels quite symbolic to what we are going through spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and even physically as healing beings on this planet. We are in process of birthing new life forms and patterns but there is still some actions we must keep initiating to support our transition into new healing territory.

So enjoy this new moon filled with the energies of family, with love, connections, our wombs. Hone in on your emotional, creative and intuitive energy to guide you.  I read somewhere that we are being brought from our heads to our wombs on this New Moon so I invite you into a gentle ritual to honor this shift 🙂

 

NEW MOON RITUAL:

Close your eyes, take some deep, relaxing breaths and see a safe, healing, loving place in your mind’s eye.  Just go with whatever comes first. Feel the temperature there, see the colors, hear the sounds, smell the smells. Breathe it in. Relax and allow your environment to soothe you like a gentle, loving hug from the Great Mother herself.  Imagine your womb, your sacred life vessel transformed into a healing guide that represents your creativity, your emotions, your feminine side of Self.  See this being walking towards you and sitting beside you. Greet this being with love. What do you notice about this part of you? What qualities or aspects stand out?  What questions do you have for your feminine self?  Let this being answer.  What does the healing guide want to tell you?  Offer thanks and love at the guide’s visit when you are done.  Do you want to give the healing guide and gift?  If so, do so and notice what it is.  Hug, shake hands or send some well wishes as you end your conversation and make plans to visit again.  Gently come back into the room, feel your feel, wiggle your hands and toes and journal about your discoveries.

Reflections:

When your ready draw or doodle your image, or vision. Journal about what came. Did you give your guide a gift?  What was it?  What do you imagine it means?  Ask it if you need to.  Allow any new insight to emerge and form some luscious new intentions for this moon cycle to get clear on this New Moon.

As always, if you feel called or connect to my writing I’d love it you Followed My Blog or The Women’s Tribe Facebook Page.  Blessings y’all.

And so it is

Full Moon & Solstice Ritual. Calling in your Power.

Hoooowweeee!!!! A full moon and the summer solstice.  The sun and the moon are shining
their brightest together, simultaneously…illuminating our guts, glory and wounds.

If there were ever a time to break free from the old patterns, the past, to get off the hamster june full moon solstice2wheel…this is it.  Grandmother Moon and Father Sun are elixing and stewing change
in their celestial cauldron.

Things heighten, explode, come to a peak at this illuminating juncture.  It is intense and I say…allow it.  Allow the intensity, the heavy, the hurt in and see it, reveal it, speak of it. Throw it on the table and fucking own it so it’s noose will fall off your neck.

We are being called into our own inner authority, our own power, our own , “no you won’t do that to me anymore” strength.   It’s like our voices are cracking open and some of it will be in loud shrieking anger then hollowing sobs for we have kept these wounded vaults closed for years and years.  Today, tonight, on this magical union and celebration of Sun and Moon, the healing emerges, the shackles are unlocked, the freedom, the new path, the new way is set in motion.  And it can get messy, symbolically bloody.

And how freaking lovely is that in the grand scheme of things! So celebrate the messy, the ugly, the bleeding wounds revealed tonight as we yank off the old band-aids and let the wound heal naturally by revealing it so it can breathe.  So we can see it and tend to it and allow a natural healing process to occur. No more covering up, no more hiding it, no more pretending we are fine.

We step into our own inner authority and confidently approach what is, even if it is full of smelly shit, painful, bloody, tears, or pussy scabs.  We let go of the victim, the silence and harness our own inner King, warrior, Emperor and own it all, the good, the bad, the ugly.  We face it and we deal.

FULL MOON/SOLSTICE RITUAL:

As always, spend some time in stillness and reflection. Revel in the light of that bright full
june full moonsolstice moon (which will come late on the longest day of the year ) and inhale the magic in the air.  Maybe today or tonight calls for an intense conversation or act of power of some sort.  Maybe it calls for finding a stone or symbol that represents your inner authority and strong, masculine energy.

Close your eyes, see yourself in a calm, safe, soothing place.  Breathe it in, feel the temperature there, see the colors, hear the sounds, feel the sensations.  When you are ready ask for a symbol or image to emerge that represents your own inner strength, personal power and authority.  Talk to it. Ask it questions as though it were an alive person and just go with what comes.  How is this symbol a representation of your strength?(ask it).  What would it like to tell you?  What would you like to tell it?  Bring the symbol into your body and let it spread like a warm honey oozing to every cell of your body until you really feel that sense of strength and power in you now. You are emperor of your your inner power.

 

And so it is friends.  Hang in there, celebrate the messy and allow the healing light to illuminate you off the old, dark trail.
