The December Energies Forecast.

sagittariusThis moon/month has shifted into Sagittarian energy.  YES!!!!   There is an energy of personal power at play here.  Many of us having been feeling drained, emotional,  even irritable from the Scorpio Moon cycle. The inner emotional energies have been rattled so you could awaken last moon.  Stagnation, irritation, lack of joy, these are all messengers that arrived at our door step to inform us to flip the page, make a change, take another road.  Get off the poor powerless me stand-point or the frozen in our foot- steps mark and get things a rollin’ again.  You may have spewed out emotion in the form of shrieks or dinosaur size tears…good!  Get that shit out and listen to why it has arrived.

 

I got all fired up at and it turns out.. it was ultimately at myself.  It came out at my hubby but the reality is I haven’t been taking responsibility for my time and my needs and blamed him.  I must be the card holder to my own destiny, my own wants and needs and lay them on the table in my game of life.

 

Many of us will find ourselves in a situation with some sort of irritant, some sort of issue or person bothering us and this moon will shine down and illuminate your power, your voice, your ability for smart planning.  You’ve been irritated to the core, holding on to these intense emotions, unsure what to do with them, where to put them, how to deal with the source of the irritation.  Perhaps like me you’ve remained frozen, unsure what to do or where to step so you’ve made no steps at all.  This moon, this month, will change that.  The centaur (Sagittarius symbol) with his bow and arrow in hand symbolizes for us the need to focus, set your aim and shoot for what you want!  Use your voice, take the step, make an action.

I pulled a Medicine Card from Jamie Sams deck and got the Opossum card.  Here’s what the Opossum wishes to share…

“Opossum medicine uses a great deal of strategy…It has the ability to fight with its claws and teeth, but it rarely uses this form of protection…If opossum has turned up in your cards, you are being asked to use strategy in some present situation.  Rely upon instincts for the best way out of a tight corner…Oftentimes if you refuse to struggle or show that hurtful words bother you, your taunter will see no further fun in the game….Opossum is beckoning you to use your brain, your sense of drama, and surprise – to leap over some barrier to your progress.”

So this month, make concrete, brain powered, logical plans to balance the inward energies stewing.  The masculine and feminine energies must be balanced, united in a sacred marriage.  Make schedules and strategies and see them through.  Commit to them as though your commitment to these schedules or strategies were symbolic to your commitment to your own self-love.  I’ve had my share of struggles with schedules, I feel locked down my them, chained, caged and my freedom loving Sagittarius soil rebels.  However, these schedules are a must for self-love and manifestation, they are not about imprisonment, they are about love for oneself and our own energy.  You are doing this for you, you are organizing your energy, making plans and taking action to move your soul forward and your heart healing onward.  The worlds needs your expressions so harness it and make it happen!

 

Here are some ideas to help move and organize your energy…there’s a clearing occurring.  Clearing space and time…organizing it so there is no wasting those luscious energy strands. It’s moving it out of your body so the anxiety, the restlessness, the overwhelm can dissipate.

Make a weekly schedule for your life.

Make a weekly menu.

Make a regular date with your soul every week, put it on your schedule.

Make daily to- do lists.

Make concrete plans of action of a sacred task at hand waiting for release and completion.

Schedule in time for your interests…yoga, writing, a new class, dance, soup making…anything!

Clean out drawers, donate clothes.

 

And so it is my friends.  Remember you can absolutely feel free to share.  Also I’d be so honored if you FOLLOWED THE BLOG OR THE WOMEN’S TRIBE FACEBOOK PAGE.  🙂

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.

As always, if you called and resonate with my writing, feel free to FOLLOW THE BLOG of the Women’s Tribe Facebook Page.  I’d be honored 🙂

How to embrace the Ch…Ch…Change on this Full Moon.

goddess of change2We are upon a full moon tomorrow….

Can you feel the call for change? Is it time to make an important choice and jump off that cliff into something new?  Can you dare and trust yourself and the Universe to give you wings and support you?  Can you trust it shall always work out…there are no wrong roads, just longer ones 🙂

It’s hard to let go of the safe and familiar isn’t it? We feel like we are in a safe cocoon, albeit, an entrapment of sameness and eventually stuckness. We like the security, the consistency, the know what to expect kinda of life.

But deep down our wild, magic souls calls to us for more, tugs us towards a golden unveiling of something new, something more expansive, something more invigorating on the soul level.  The soul craves change, craves expansion, excitement and aliveness.  This is the “joie de vivre ” in soul life.

My sister recently had to make a decision to make a change or stay in the same place she was in.  She wasn’t happy in the same but making the change required that she cut the safety net off the old, to really say good-bye to it.  She was torn as to what to do because her fear got a hold of her and zoomed her focus on what would happen if it didn’t work out.  She went right to the worse case scenario.  We’ve learned that pattern her and I but I encouraged her to approach with trust and faith in the Divine.  She would not have been gifted this opportunity if it wasn’t meant for her.  She would learn something brand new either way and this was about a positive change that yes, could be challenging but far more fulfilling. I encouraged her to take the road that had rainbows and golden sparkles on it.

I mean, what is the purpose of life really…to live on the safe, accomplished, titled, road or to take chances, follow your heart, have soul lifting experiences?  For me its’ the latter, for me it’s a life well lived, sucked dry of everything juicy it had to offer, not just checking off the “success boxes”.  We can all be “accomplished” or have the picture perfect life and job and still feel empty.  Is that the goal- external success?  That is fine and dandy but it need to be coupled with some magical experiences and feelings, and internal aliveness.   Life is not meant to be safe and mundane…we need to live, explore, expand, and stretch ourselves into new territories and see what is there.  What the heck excites your bones?  What puts sparkles in your eyes?  What song does your heart sing?

My sister,  she boldy, confidently, excitedly jumped off the cliff into the new. She’s one courageous, smart goddess.

The cosmos support this change or actually create and initiate this time of change in all our lives.  It calls us into our authenticity, into our depths where we feel alive, sparkly, magic dusted and aroused.  Make the choice that excites all of your senses.  Make the choice that scares the shit out of you but simultaneously makes your heart want to bust with excitement and giddiness.

So on this lovely Full Moon, why not do some reflective writing to deepen your trust in yourself, cause you’re fricken awesome and amazing and have all this wonderous stuff about your already and you trust that the universe is calling your greatness into life, into the world.  Why not dip your pen into the elements of trust and faith and let the universe create a matrix of wonder and excitement.  Let your pen guide you home to the place of remembering.

Go Buck Wild with this November New Moon Ritual!

nov moon1Ahhhhh…..a return to my home sign Sagittarius.  Another year of my life soon completed as my birthday fast approaches.  So much to reflect on this year….what an interesting year.

Tomorrow’s New Moon falls just as Sagittarius busts out of the gates and that’s some good and exciting news.  Us Sagittarius folk are about freedom.  Freedom…freedom…and more freedom.  We are free-spirited centaurs; half animal, half human and we love to play, explore and adventure out. We are thirsty for knowledge and know that it is through experience and exploration that we drink it in.  We are bright eyed and busy tailed, voluptuous thinkers and visionaries.  When we have an idea we run with it, not just in the farm yard but to borders and beyond.  We stretch the impossible limits with exciting visions and move towards the so called “unreachable”.  We dare to travel there, not just for the guts and glory of the pursuit but also for the radically fun ride of adventure down the trail of the unknown and un-travelled possibilities.

My statue of Goddess Tara was also an inspiration for this month’s new moon.  I typically keep her on my fireplace mantel but with Christmas Season my son wanted to put some snowmen in her spot.  So I reluctantly agreed and moved her onto my altar.  Wowza!  She’s been calling to go there.  She is the “mother of liberation” and she represents the virtues of success in work and achievements.  She governs the life, death and rebirth cycles and is often associated with Luna and the Moon cycles.  So allow Goddess Tara to see your visions, have fun and stretch those thinking limits into the realms of imagination, visioning and fun exploration for the soul.  Write down two or three goals you have for this moon cycle and sit it on your altar with some tobacco, corn meal or epson salts.  I have an offering plate where I leave my monthly moon goals and I tell ya’ they’ve been working.

NEW MOON RITUAL:  So in honor of this New Moon in Sagittarius I invite you to create a collage with all your radical, wild, free spirited visions for your life.  Go ahead, write them down, collage them, see them…and dare to dream them.  Have fun, play, and make visible your wild and free wishes.  Dare to dream the unthinkable and go for it.

Life is but an adventure, so embrace the Sagittarius energy and go buck wild in the adventurous realms of your soul.  Let yourself be sagittariously free spirited and charge into new visions and ideas.

Enjoy, it will be a great month.
