moon magic

Third Quarter Moon, A Poem

Half Moon at midnight, a sentinel shines

In deepest night, watching those who sleep

Enchanting dreamers with beams of light

Sprinkled like dew upon slumbering eyes

And filling dreams with magical things

Super Moon, November 14, 2016

Mr. LaVeaux and I went outside last night to find the Moon as she was rising from the pine trees behind the house. This photo was taken from my driveway. Please enjoy this photo of the Moon. I snapped this photo with the intention of sharing it with the world and was very pleased at the result. I hope you enjoy it, too.

The Proof is In.

The proof for the print copy of my new book, Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon, arrived in today’s mail. It turned out a lot nicer than I thought it would.

Once I proofread this copy, I’ll have it set to publish by Monday. My goal was to have this available on or by Halloween. Grateful to think I may be able to accomplish this by that day.

As the moon is entering her Dark phase, may you find solace in the deep night and joy in  Samhain celebrations.

Thank you for your support of my work.

Available now for Kindle at .99!

Just released, Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon is available now for Kindle at a price of .99. Please visit this link for your copy.

In this book I have created a pathway toward working with each of the moon’s phases, using original poetry, reflections, meditations and ideas for setting intentions at each phase of the moon.

It is my hope that you will enjoy reading and using it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Thank you for supporting my work. Keep your eyes on the moon.

The new book is finished and will soon be published!

Earlier today I completed the second draft of Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon. The book is due a third reread and edit. My hope is that it will be up on Kindle by the end of the week and no later than Halloween day.

The book is slim but filled with poetry, reflections, meditations, and ideas for intention setting during each phase of the Moon. It was created as a way to share my impressions of the Moon during the course of her lifecycle. My hope is that it touches you and inspires you to grow closer to our cosmic sister.

Velvet is still available for FREE on KindleUnlimited. Please grab a copy and – if you have already read the book – please leave your impressions on it by writing a review. If you do, I would be most grateful.

Thank you for supporting me in my writing endeavors.

Peace and all good things from my heart to yours.

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…)

Coming soon…

I’m finishing up a little book of reflections, poetry and meditations based on each phase of the moon.

If you read my novel Velvet you will remember that the book is filled with magical scenes, a few of which involve the moon. As a moon watcher, I tend to fill my stories and my artwork with moon images.

It’s an Echo thing, for sure.

I’m truly looking forward to publishing this little book in the very near future. It’ll be a little book with a little price tag.

My wish and hope is that you enjoy reading and using it as much as I enjoyed creating it and putting it all together.

It’s a little gift from my moonlit heart to yours.

Coming Soon…

Though I’ve taken a bit of a break from writing, I am now nearly finished with the first draft of my next work: Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon.

A small volume, this will be a spiritually-oriented book about the moon and our relationship with it. It will take the reader through each of the lunar phases and offer poetry, reflections and meditations created to assist the reader in learning to work with the moon at any time of the lunar cycle.

I look forward to bringing this work out into the world, and I hope that you will find it beneficial in your personal spiritual journey.

Keep an eye on this page for updates. And as always, thank you for your support.

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…)
