Black Moon Rising

Dateline – Friday, September 30, 2016: Black Moon Rising 

We are about to experience a very rare lunar phenomenon…a Black Moon. Simply stated, the Black Moon is a second New Moon in a calendar month. Just like the Blue Moon, a second Full Moon in a month, the Black Moon comes to us as an extra day of oomph.

Everyone has their own interpretation of the Moon phases and how to use them in their personal lives. As this is the first Black Moon we’ve had in awhile, I am choosing to use the energy of this Moon in a special way.

On Friday evening, after the Sun has set, I plan to go outside and sit under the dark sky. My goal for the Black Moon is to set some intentions and use the power of the second September New Moon to help manifest the dreams I would like to see come to pass.

My intention setting rituals are very basic. Some tools I plan to use in my meditation are as follows: (more…)

New Moon in Taurus

Today is the new moon in earthy Taurus.

Set your intentions now for new adventures, new beginnings, new everything.

Watch yourself inch closer to your goal as you watch the moon grow to fullness over the next two weeks.

Happy cosmic-place-of-new-beginnings!

The Full Pink Moon of April

April’s full moon is known as the Pink Moon. It’s said that this moon was named due to the early flowers of spring, when the earth begins to waken and plants come out of their winter slumber. Look around…do you see evidence of this in your part of the world?

This 2016 April Pink Moon arrives nestled within the sharp and piercing constellation of Scorpio, the watery scorpion. Allow the intensity and the transformative power of Scorpio to mesh with this full moon energy when setting your full moon intentions. (more…)

Vintage Gothic, the blog

My good friend Shari has published a new blog called Vintage Gothic. It’s a beautiful place to learn about the Gothic lifestyle.

If you are like me, an Elder Goth, you will be thrilled with this blog. If you are interested in life from a Gothic perspective, then Vintage Gothic is the place for you.

Shari does tarot card readings and I must say, she’s spot on. I just purchased my first ever tarot reading and Shari nailed it for me. Thanks to her, I have the guidance I need in relation to my writing career. Right now, she’s running a $5 reading special but you’d better hurry! The price goes up on June 1, 2016.

Please stop by and give the blog a look. I think you’ll be enchanted…and that is an excellent thing indeed. Vintage Gothic

The Magic of Intent

A lot can be said about intentions. We make them, we have good ones, and we hope that the intentions of others aren’t bad or negative. We talk about doing this, wanting that, hoping for an outcome that will be to our benefit. We may even write down some goals and hope that they will somehow come true.

Have we ever stopped to think about just what an intention is? About how to intend?

Better yet, have we ever stopped to realize that there is magic in intention?

As the moon wanes

The full moon is a wonderful time for completion and fullness of being. It is also the time to experience the absolute magick of a sky charged with lunar energy. The big, bright moon rising after sunset is always a sight to behold. Orange-red at first glance, she rises slowly above the horizon, fading to shades of yellow before revealing her beautiful and silvery face.

Mystics, magicians and witches the world over celebrate her beauty. Much magick and meditation happens on the night of the full moon. There is a lot of crackling energy to be felt, if only we take the time to feel it.

And most of us do. (more…)

Welcoming the Time of the Dark Moon

When I woke up this morning, it was a whopping 18F outside my window. Brrr.

This cold weather made me think about the dark moon that is approaching us. (more…)
