May Full Moon- Express Your Wild.

mayfullmoonHappy Full Moon!!! ūüôā

Wow, this is an interesting full moon.  The energies are buzzing, new patterns forming.  After the last moon cycle (and collapsing, ending/ crisis of last moon) we are in a time of rebuild, renewal, re-structuring.  We have started new patterns, new cycles, new ways of approaching life.  And we are being rewarded.

This moon feels joyous, a time of celebration. ¬†A time of fun. ¬†In Canada, it’s May long weekend and it’s actually hot and sunny. ¬†It almost always rains May long weekend but this year is different, this moon is different. ¬†The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the people are buzzing with excitement.

I pulled a card from the Native Spirit Oracle cards and it is Song of the Wild card.  How fitting.

New horizons await you! ¬†You’re ready to savor the wonders of the world. ¬†Take some risks. ¬†Answer the call of the wild. ¬†Step out of your comfort zone. ¬†Live passionately. ¬†Take steps in the direction of freedom. ¬†Expand beyond your limitations and boundaries. ¬†Maybe its time to take a journey or do something new and exciting.

Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: ¬†You are entering a period of expansion and going beyond self-imposed limitations. ¬†Even if you feel hesitant, this is a time to try something new and do things in a different way. ¬†You might even visit far-off lands or wild natural places. ¬†Adventure often entails risk, but without it, life can become lackluster and stagnant. ¬†There’s a vast new, and wondrous vista just around the corner, but you’ll never see it if you don’t venture out.

It feels like a victory moon, a bright light shining on us for choosing another path, for rebuilding rather than staying stuck in the rubble of the past. ¬†It’s time for change and growth and you have earned the right to celebrate your courage, your commitment, your steps forward into the new. It takes guts to let the old go, to face the inner stuff so you can and to walk a new tight rope into a brand new way of life.

So do something fun and wild.  Something that feeds your freedom and wild soul.  Dress up today/tonight. Wear a bright lipstick, a bold dress, a funky hat.  Do your make-up differently, wear bold jewelry.  Be out in the wild, in nature, around fire and friends.  Celebrate your wild soul by expressing it.

Happy Full Moon friends, enjoy this fun one, it is well deserved ūüôā

As always, if you feel called do FOLLOW THE BLOG of Like the Women’s Tribe Facebook Page. ¬†I’d be honored ūüôā

May New Moon Ritual & Celebration

may moon2This New Moon feels like a welcome celebration, doesn’t it?   Last moon/month was INTENSE!  The month was filled with crisis, change, upheaval, chaos, things falling apart and reaching a point of climax.  We had no choice but to change out of old, wounded, uncertain patterns of our past, life brought forth change, growth, endings, destruction, etc. so we could begin anew or at least start upon a new path, a new pattern, a new, loving, authentic way of being.  Bridges collapsed into the old way of life and this month is about allowing new roads to take shape and reveal themselves.  We are planning out new actions, new life, a taking the first step or two in beginning this re-birth and restructuring.

This moon/month is about doing things a little different.¬† Trying new things, taking action, responsibility, and finally addressing what we have always postponed ourselves in addressing.¬† We shine the flashlight on our dark bits and look at them so we can heal them.¬† This will take courage, vulnerability and strength but you have those qualities within you….yes you do!

It feels like even though the crisis and chaos/ peak moments have occurred and shattered what was, we are now in the process of planning out how to take action to rebuild, restructure, re-do some old ways.    This is a great thing on the soul level, even though it may feel like total crap.  This is truly a healing time.

NEW MOON RITUAL.

On this New Moon in Taurus I invite you to throw a New Moon party.  It can be  a party of one or like for me, a party of 3, the hubby, my son and myself.  The intention, to indulge in some physical senses and luxuries.  So after all the tough stuff last moon, now is the time to nurture ourselves and feed ourselves love and enduring self-care energy as we trek upon new territory.  Why not make it a magical evening, a date night with the Moon if you will.

So, tonight have a luscious meal, buy a lovely bottle of vino, or make some dessert.¬† Take a walk or hike, move your body, do some yoga, go for a bike ride…really ignite your physical senses.¬† Celebrate this moon like it were a marker of your new road, new chapter, new way of life.¬† Somehow, some way, have some conscious, New Moon fun.¬† List some ideas you have, some actions you will take this month to move forward into new patterns and out from the old.¬† It might be setting boundaries, or finally signing up for a class or exploring ways to leave a relationship.¬† Whatever it is, list it, put it into consciousness, even it‚Äôs a simple exploration or evaluation of what you are still unsure about.

But tonight, you celebrate.  Celebrate the beginning of a new cycle. You made it through last month.  Indulge your senses.  Toast the moon, toast each other, toast yourself.  Taste the cake, feel the bubbles in the bath, let the wind sweep though you like it were a caress from the Goddess herself.

Tonight…all you need is enjoyment! Find your way there and share ūüôā

Happy New Moon.

May’s Full Moon Ritual – Forward and Onward.

moonmayThe Full Moon is fast approaching, on Sunday May 3.  I thought I’d write a couple days early to allow us some prep time for a glorious, celebratory ritual.

So here we go…..

I started the New Moon in inertia, stuckness and overwhelm.  It kept showing up as a re-occurring infection because I wasn’t sitting with the discomfort.  I wasn’t sitting in the stuckness so I could weave my way out of it.  After much dancing, yoga, and movement meditations as part of my commitment to unwind out of stuckness eventually clarity came and danced on my shoulder.  She whispered to me and allowed me to see a much clearer direction and path to take.  I’ve been stuck at the fork in the road for awhile now, wondering, “Should I go this way or that way?” and instead just stood still in non-decision and getting side tracked by anything that would pull me out of the awareness of where I stood. 

I prayed and committed for weeks now for guidance and nowthe time has come to start trekking along and I was happy to discover that really, there are no wrong roads.  We will always be lead back to our path and sometimes we take the longer loop there because we needed to gather more lessens.

This moon for me has been a lesson in my own authority, feeling confident in myself and my dream and really fully believing in it.  I have been making clear and marked choices towards my soul’s call this time 100% not half assed or half confident but full fledged two feet in and going for it.  I have been making active decisions, paying active attention, DOING THE WORK.  I haven’t stood back and waited to be guided, I took steps and allowed the trail to guide me with each step.  

As Danielle Laporte says, “Worship Your Dream”.  Believe in it like no other, believe in being of service to the universe, it’s not really about you but about the universe.  When I got out of my own way the universe spoke to me and whispered what to do when I took myself out to lunch and as soon as I heard it I knew what trail to take.  It’s no holds bar all in.  Finally!  I finally have inner union.

Feel your dream fully, un-apologetically, meaningfully, full of full blown belief in yourself and your life plan.  Feel it in your bones, feel it in your blood like shining diamonds of confidence and radiant sparkle as you see yourself doing your dream, believing in your dream.  You are being guided by the cosmos and they are weaving a trail in front of you.  All you have to do is walk upon it and be led. Walk on forward with no more fucking fear!  Choose to let your heart lead you into bliss, into your fullest expression and just BELIEVE in the steps there one by one. Will there be some challenge…fuck ya! But we walk on never doubting ourselves, just holding our dreams in our vision with certainty and walk on.

Full Moon Celebration – Honoring Forward Movementforward and onward

On this full moon let’s celebrate what feels like an acceleration, a real movement forward…alas!! We have gone through the ringer, endured much, built our strength and character, moved mountains and have stood stuck at the rushing river of the unknown.  We stood stuck on one side of it unknowing how to cross.  So we sat and we sat, contemplating, gathering information and ideas, watching it to see how it flowed.  Some days we turned away from it because we didn’t want to look or see what we have to cross, so we went and played and distracted.  It’s all good, it allowed us room to fill up and gather strength.  Now we start the trek across, we will get there because we believe in ourselves to get to the other side of the stream…right?

Right!

So allow the universe and this glorious Grandmother Full Moon to illuminate and shine brightly on your growth, your momentum and the manifestation of your soul’s glory in form.

Gather some  pieces of paper or cut out words or images from magazines that symbolize your trail ahead.  Write down how you plan to keep trekking forward.  What are you going to keep doing til the end of this moon cycle and into the next to move into the form of manifestation of your soul’s expression?  

Take your papers and read them out loud.  Express to the Universe Divine and Grandmother Moon how you plan to keep moving forward, your vision, the plan, the steps, an your ultimate goal.  Express your dream and allow whatever comes to you.  As you read each paper release them into the wind.  Let the wind help you move and carry your dreams forward and onward.  And so it is .

Lastly write yourself a letter expressing your strength and ability to endure the unknown as part of the process to make it known.  Express all the good you have done for yourself even if is that you simply did not give up or you did yoga or you didn’t have a glass of wine to disconnect even when you really wanted to.  Make this a gratitude list for yourself about yourself.  What are you grateful for about you, your soul, your character, your traits, your heart, your creativity, your gentleness, your thoughtfulness in your life and in the lives of others?  Own it!  Absorb it and allow it to grow your light!  You have done bloody great, own it, celebrate and raise your glass to yourself.

Cheers to your glory and even your dark!

And so it is!
