lunar eclipse

Standing in awe

Sometimes it’s a good thing to pull back away from knowledge and let the imagination soar a little. When you read the words above, do you see the image?

Two lovers kissing and making magic.

There is magic all around us in the most mundane and taken-for-granted things of life.

A tree is magic. So is a rock.

Look at things with your eyes a little out of focus and let your mind follow suit.

See the world around you as if you were a small child encountering it for the first time.

Let yourself fall into a state of awe.

And as the moon begins to wane…

I tend to be one of those people who base my life around the phases of the moon.

Over the years I’ve attuned myself to the moon’s energy and have learned to work with it in my life. Now that the full blood moon’s energy is dissipating, I anticipate a major energy clearing in my life as the moon begins to wane.

There is something quite powerful about allowing the moon to guide you in your life. Though subtle, the moon has the power to help you create what you want as well as remove those things that no longer serve you. (more…)

A little full moon magick for you

Tonight I prepared an altar for the rising of the Aries full moon. On it I placed a handful of orange and red stones, a stick of incense, and a candle. The candle had been engraved and sigil charged last week. Tonight I anointed it with cinnamon essential oil. Everything was chosen to represent the planet Mars, the sign of Aries, and the element of fire.

I set my intentions as I lit the candle, then sent out an intention that whoever reads this post will gain goodness from the magick I have prepared.

May the energy of my humble full moon altar bring success, prosperity and all good things to everyone. Happy eve of the lunar eclipse. May sleep fill you with magnificent dreams where you attain your every wish, and may your sky be clear in the wee hours tomorrow morning when the moon puts on her red party dress.

Creeping toward an October blood moon

Here it is, the Monday before a Wednesday full moon.  There has been a lot of positive, electric energy swirling around me the past few days.  I can tell that the moon is nearly full just by the way I feel.  Just by the expansive feelings that fill (more…)
