Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon Rising: An Inspiring Light

by

Alright Moon lovers, on Saturday we are hitting the second and final eclipse of this cycle. It’s a big one as it’s a Blood Moon. The moon will turn bright red for about an hour. Blood moons are seen as omens of big change or events about to happen. It doesn’t necessarily mean dark ominous mayhem and destruction are immanent. Change can be positive when we meet it with enthusiasm and trust in the divine plan.

Do you fear change? Are your habitual patterns keeping you small, safe and disempowered? That isn’t the way for any Sensual Lover. Use the power of the full moon to galvanize your life, dreams, hopes and aspirations. Remember the New Moon/eclipse/equinox a couple of weeks ago? It was a powerful and important time to set intentions and do ceremony. The last couple of weeks were an incubation period for your manifestations (albeit a potentially turbulent one).  At this full moon, complete the ritual by gathering what is not serving you and set it ablaze. Free yourself from the shackles of stagnation to actualize your potent New Moon manifestations.  Open sacred space, give offerings to your altar or to the earth, be clear and firm in your prayers. The great mystery is listening. What are you truly asking for?

Big Night in the Sky: New Moon and Solar Eclipse

Big Night in the Sky: New Moon and Solar Eclipse

by

Tremors, I feel tremors; not necessarily bad but definitely powerful. In the last few days, have you been feeling unusually anxious, impatient or cautious? Have you been having difficulty sleeping well? The reason might just be found in the sky. Friday is a rare and potent astrological event and the energy building up to it can, and probably is affecting your moods. Up above, there is a new super moon, equinox and a solar eclipse all within a 24 hour period. Wow, it’s big.

Because of the magnitude of this particular moon, I consulted a dear astrologer friend, Julia Wawrzyniak-Beyer, to give me the lowdown (If you are looking for an excellent astrologer and tarot reader please contact her at Beyer2373@bell.net).

Last Full Moon of Winter: Flowers are Just Around the Corner

by

In many parts of the Northern hemisphere, snow is melting away and little sparks of life are coming to the surface. It’s an exciting time of regeneration and renewal.

All this week, I have been cleansing with Ayurvedic kitchari to gently release the sludge of winter and prepare my body and my mind for the upcoming season. March goes in like a lion out like a lamb, so they say. How can you use the energy of the March full moon? Is it time for you to let down your armor and allow the soft sweetness of life into your life? How can you soften your edges? What can you do to support yourself through this transition?

How to feng shui your love space.

by

Yin Yang Feng ShuiSensual lover, I believe in the power of energy in objects. We have the ability to create our environment, along with our thoughts, to manifest our most intimate desires. As a result, I often turn to Feng shui if I am feeling a little stuck in the mud. Feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of arranging objects to create a good flow of energy or chi. Nowhere is more important to have good chi than in the bedroom. A lot goes on in the bedroom and you can do so much to improve it by using a few key ideas. If you are looking to attract a love friend or improve the relationship you currently have, please consider this:

October Full Moon- Blood Moon/ Hunter Moon

by

blood-moonIt’s tonight! Can you feel it? The full moon is tonight and this one is super-charged, wild and electric. Sometimes called the Blood moon or Hunter’s moon, it’s the first full moon after the Harvest Moon. It is called the Blood moon because it has a reddish hue to it. Additionally, the October moon is called a Hunters moon because it is time of easy hunting, even deep into the night, allowing us to prepare for the long winter ahead. While I have a slight aversion to the cold, I love this time of year because there is a discernable shift in energy. The days are cooler and the nights are getting longer. It’s hunkering season (or cashmere season in my life). This Blood moon is particularly special because there is also a total eclipse.

Harvest Full Moon: September 2014

by

HARVEST-MOONYep, it’s the full moon again tonight and this particular moon is always one of my favorites. It’s the harvest moon and the time where farmers in the Northern Hemisphere are quickly gathering their crops before the winter. The Harvest Moon aids farmers as they bring in the crops, because of its bigness and brightness. The harvest moon is especially potent as it falls very close to the equinox- the time that the days and nights are equal in length. It’s a time of balance, harmony and peace. The Harvest Moon usually appears bigger, brighter or more pumpkin-colored than other full moons. One of my favorite places to be is on the lake watching the Harvest moon rise. I remember, as a child, the wonder of seeing a vibrant orange moon. It still fills me with awe. I will be there at the lake this evening, trust!

Full Moon August 2014: Super Moon

by

Moon_thirst_rumiThe full moon is August 10, 2014 at 2P.M. EDT and we are in for a big, juicy super moon. It will be the biggest moon of the year. A super moon means that the moon will be closest to the earth’s orbit making it appear bigger and brighter than other full moons. The super moons are also the most super charged. The best time to view it is just after sunset when the moon is rising out of the horizon.

Full Sturgeon Moon

alabama_sturgeon

Some Native American tribes called this month’s Moon the Sturgeon Moon because they knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Around the Great lakes, in Native American tradition, Sturgeons were considered the royalty of fishes (also prized by Europeans for their precious caviar). Working with Sturgeon medicine can teach you about determination, perseverance, depth, knowledge, generosity, strength, and sexuality. Is there a big fish you are trying to catch? Is there an area of your life that can benefit from Sturgeon medicine and the power of the moon? This is a good time to cast your net into the great big sea of opportunity and reap the rewards of your patience and determination.
