Things to do Samhain

pumpkin samhain blessing

There are several things to consider doing during this time of the year.

  1. Take a meditative walk in a natural area near your home.  Experience yourself as part of the Circle of Life and reflect on death and rebirth as being an important part of Nature.
  2. Contemplate on what things have to die in your life so that other areas can live…ex:  habits, relationships, past, guilt, anger, grief, fear….  Then call forth what you want to replace it with.. self-control, positive outcome and future, love, joy, peace, etc….Meditate on it.
  3. Look for signs of death on your nature walk…. fallen leaves, fallen branches, flowers dying,etc..
  4.  You can do a genealogy research.
  5. Ancestors Altar: Gather photographs, heirlooms, and other momentos of deceased family, friends, and companion creatures.   Arrange them on a table, dresser, or other surface.
  6. Prepare a Samhain dinner.  Include a place setting at your table or nearby the altar of any deceased loved one.  Add an offering of each beverage and food being served to the extra place setting.  Invite your ancestors and other deceased loved ones who come in love to come dine with you.  After the feast, place the contents of the plate and cup outside in a natural location as an offering for your deceased loved ones.  You don’t want them to get to comfortable inside and decide to stay.
  7. Ancestor stories:  Learn about family history.  Contact one or more older relatives and ask them to share memories  of deceased family members.  Record them in some way and later write accounts of what they share.  Share what you have learned and have written with other family members and friend.  Feel free to share any of your favorite stories of the deceased loved ones as well and invite your kids and friends and family to share.
  8. Recall any of the characteristics, strengths, or attributes of your deceased loved ones that you can learn from or admire.  Go around in a circle or perform as a private meditation.
  9. Cemetery Visit:  Visit and tend the gravesite of a loved one at a cemetery.  Call to mind memories and consider ways the loved one continues to live on with you.  Place an offering of fresh flowers, dried herbs, or water.
  10. Do meditations to release the fear of death and just be at peace with it.  Envision when the time comes that it is a graceful and painless experience and you will have left this place fulfilled and happy with the life you have lived.  Where you view it as a transition into a lovely beginning of something wonderful and not just the end.
  11. Do a meditation where you try to contact a deceased loved one for guidance or to be at peace with their passing on.
  12. Divinatory Guidance:  Using Oracle cards, runes, scrying, or some other form of divination, seek and reflect on guidance for the year to come.  Write a summary of your experience and any messages received.  Select something appropriate to act upon and do it!  Give Thanks for the messages received!
  13. Sit outside and just marinate in the Samhain energy.
  14. Meditate on your positive transformation and the positive changes you can do that will promote it.  Make a list.  Look for new habits and things to do or people to hang out with.

Things to do Sun in Scorpio

scorpio trio

  1. Scorpio wants answers and the only way to get to the bottom of things is to ask a lot of questions, keep your eyes open and alert, and pick up your magnifying glass to investigate the mysteries surrounding you.  If you’re wondering about something, now’s the time to find out.
  2. Say something intense and from the heart.  Even though they keep them hidden deep down inside.  Don’t hold back– say something deeply moving to someone you love.
  3. This is also a good time to let go of a secret that you have been holding onto for a while for deep healing to occur.
  4. Secretive Scorpio is known for keeping secrets.. sincerely offer someone to keep their secret as a way to prove to them that they can trust you.
  5. Scorpio is intrigued by the underworld and the unknown, so now is a great time to visit a mystery museum full of peculiarities…a haunted house, magic show or even a walk through the cemetery, to visit loved ones who have passed or just to imagine what type of lives some of the people must have lived.
  6. Indulge Scorpio’s love of mystery and shop for a good spy thriller, a detective movie, or maybe a binocular… who knows what you might see!
  7. Scorpio is calm and cool on the outside but they have a smoldering volcano of emotions buried within that can explode if provoked.  Watch out for feelings of jealousy, obsessive or compulsive behavior and sneaky stuff happening behind your back.  Be mindful of suppressed emotions that can erupt as well.
  8. Scorpio loves passion, sex, and intimacy.  It is deeply loving and very willing to prove it in the bedroom.  This can be a time for intimacy and exposing your most powerful feelings, this is the time to go deep.
  9. Trying new positions in the bedroom can also be fun.  It’s time to stop holding yourself back in the bedroom..Release your inhibition, fear, or doubt in the bed and just trust that you will be loved and approved in all ways.
  10. Buy a sexy pair of underwear or lingerie. Arrange a very special night for you and that special someone to show it off.  Heck, even surprise them by showing up to their door wearing nothing but your most banging shoes, sexy lingerie and a coat, asking for a good time.
  11. Buy a karma sutra book or go to an adult playstore with your special someone to shop or browse.  You don’t necessarily have to buy anything but it is a good way to get to know what your partner would love to try with you and it could spark some imagination and play in the bedroom.
  12. Since Scorpio represents the muddy toxic waters, take this time to spruce up your bathroom.
  13. This could be a good time to end toxic relationships or burn bridges that need to be burned.
  14. You could even detox to release and purge toxicicity from your body.

Sun Transit through Scorpio

scorpio sun

The Sun will make it’s transit through the Scorpio constellation from October 23rd till November 21st, according to the Tropical astrology.  The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”.  Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feelings.  Scorpio is penetrating, transformative and unstoppable.  Mediocrity does not satisfy neither.  Scorpio’s energy is provocative, usually in a quiet, as well as passionate, strong-willed and intense way.  It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.

In Libra, we strive for equality and fairness.  In Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn’t fair.  Jealousy, secrecy, beating a dead horse, and manipulation are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.  Scorpio can be rigid, stubborn, and have an unyielding point of view.

Scorpio represents the toxic waters.  All of that suppressed stuff and emotions we shove away deeply that we don’t want to deal with.  Scorpio’s energy is not only represented by the scorpion but also by the phoenix, death and rebirth through dismemberment and remembering.  It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.

scorpio scorpionHalloween takes place under the influence of Scorpio and that’s no coincidence.  We all adopt the scorpion’s intensity during this time.  As the days grow shorter and Autumn fades into winter in the Northern hemisphere, the natural world begins to decay–a reminder of our own mortality that awakens our curiosity about the meaning of life and its many realms.

Scorpio energy brings intensity and mystery.  You may be drawn to searching the darkest regions of the Universe to bring all the hidden mystical and mysterious knowledge into the bright light of the day.  This energy has a magnetic pull at this time of the year– all you have to do is tune into it.

The sign Scorpio brings highly perceptual psychic abilities.  Scorpio’s energy is good for cutting through the “BS” and getting to look at things for what they really are. Superficially simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio.  We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters.  All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed, interests us, because normally it is considered socially unacceptable or that you may be rejected by a type of behavior.

scorpio risenYou should be able to utilize some key motivators centered on ambition while Scorpio rules.  Position and power may be yours for the taking if you shoot for the stars.  If you really set your mind on what you want and passionately commit to your endeavors, you’ll be supported.  It’s about believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of greatness.

One of Scorpio’s symbol is the Eagle,  which represents intelligence and clear visions, so you may want to pay attention to your “visions” or dreams this month.  Keeping a dream journal may be enlightening, especially if you’re looking for some specific answers.    Visions don’t necessarily have to occur at night, you can also get sudden flashes of insight during your waking hours, if you’re looking for them.

Scorpio’s energy is passionate, dynamic, and observant.  You may find that this vibration seeps into your bones and makes you feel more powerful then any other time of the year.  There are lessons to be learned on how to live your life the rest of the year.  Use the time while the Sun is in Scorpio to access your sensual side.  This isn’t necessarily about sex, but rather experiencing the sensuous feelings that mean you’re truly alive.  Turn everything you do into an opportunity to be passionate and intense about life.

Autumn Equinox

autumn equinox

The Autumn Equinox, occurring around September 21-23, is the second harvest festival, of the fruits.  Its energy is appreciation and harvest.  It’s about seeing results from all the hard work and the “seeds” you have been planting through the year.  It’s a result-oriented time of year, during which, if you focus hard and remain clear many wonderful things can manifest in your life.

The colors associated with the Autumn Equinox are orange, red, brown, and purple.  Customs associated with the Autumn Equinox are offerings to land, preparing for cold weather and bringing in harvest.  The tools that symbolize the Autumn Equinox are cornucopia, corn and harvested crops.

Autumn food include:  squash, corn, pumpkin, grain, nut bread, apples, seasonal vegetables, and apple cider

cornicopiaDecorations include:  Autumn flowers, gourds, acorns, corn sheaves,and Autumn leaves

Incense and plants associated with the Autumn Equinox include:  pine, sage, sweet grass, myrrh, and marigold, passion flower and fern,

Stones associated with the Autumn Equinox are:  clear quartz, amber, peridot, diamond, gold, citrine, yellow topaz, aventurine, and cat’s eye

Herbs associated with the Autumn Equinox are: rue, yarrow, rosemary, marigold, sage, aloe, walnut leaves and husks, mistletoe, saffron, chamomile, almond leaves, passionflower, frankincense, rose hips, bittersweet, sunflower, wheat, oak leaves, maple leaves, dried apples or apple seeds.


During the equinoxes the plane of the Earth’s equator passes the center of the Sun.  At that instant, the tilt of the Earth’s axis neither inclines away nor towards the Sun.  On the Equinox the Sun rests above the equator and day and night are equally divided giving us 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of moonlight.  In actuality though, the balance of light and dark occurs a couple days after the Autumn Equinox and precedes it a couple of days before the Spring Equinox.

Each equinox and solstice period is a “power time” and loads of intense spiritual energy or “Earth chi” comes flooding forth. It’s really easy to access this energy in prayer, meditation, or psychic work.  It’s also a great time for any creative work whether you come up with grand ideas or and it’s a super time to do healing work or receive healing work.  There are multidimensional gateways of energy that open up at these times and the indigenous people celebrated and used the energies that are available at those times.

cherokee autumn equinoxThree days before and three days after the Autumn and Spring Equinox, the ley lines of the Earth give off a heightened electromagnetic charge.  This can make you feel a bit hyper or unsettled but if you can ground the energies and apply it correctly, this is an amazing time for healing, meditation, cleansing, and any type of power prayer, manifestation, and/or psychic work.  These cosmic occurrences  are interpreted as the need to seek balance in ones life, find your center, and re-align yourself.

The Autumn Equinox is a very powerful time when subconscious messages, information from your spirit guides, and spiritual  information can easily break through and inspire you.  It’s also a lot easier during this time to do any type of psychic work which requires finer sense perception.  Psychic readings will be uncannily more accurate.  Holistic health treatments will be more effective and on target.  The truth seems to penetrate more readily  during this time where too often we can become mentally cloudy or emotionally unbalanced.

The Autumn Equinox signals the beginning of Autumn.  It signals the need to balance light and darkness within us.  Far too often we only adore the light and fear the darkness. But when you can befriend your inner darkness it becomes less of an enemy and more of a place of nurturing for slow and steady growth. The sun is moving into Libra, a balanced and measured sign which is famous for being fair in issuing balance where blame is due.  It is a time for harmonizing what is off balance before the end of the year.  I find that this can be a challenging time because it may come out weird and unusual, especially if you have been off balance for a while.  It may bring up anger, especially with people that need to be addressed.  You may feel resentment and a sense of “you can’t take it anymore”.  This is how your stuff is showing up.  This is what you need to focus on because this is what is calling your attention to seek balance.

autumn equinox sun centerAs the plane of the earth’s equator passes the center of the sun this too is an opportunity for us to re-align and find your center.  Far too often, we get so caught up in our life and forget to center ourselves.  We lose track of our directive and may steer off course for a bit.  This is an opportunity to re-align yourself with your purpose, dreams, and goals, or even just to re-align with yourself.  Spending time around people is great but their beliefs, thoughts, actions, and even language can become imposed on you from being around them so much.  So it’s very important to re-align yourself with your true nature… who you really are and all you were meant to be.  Re-align yourself with your intention or change and integrate new information or experiences to re-define your intention.  Center yourself.  Find your center.  Define your center….your connection to Source, the magick within, your spiritual connection.

For centuries, the Autumn equinox has been a way to recognize the blessings of life.  Before the days of supermarkets and the convenience of readily available food, life was hard.  People farmed the land and provided sustenance for themselves. Weather, as always, has often been unpredictable as one of the many events that could destroy an entire mainstay of existence.  Other problems such as mass insect infestation may have left weary crop farmers wondering how they would survive.  So it’s no wonder that when harvest was bountiful, gratitude became important.  Hence, many celebrations of thankfulness cropped up.  These were heartfelt sources of joy.  This is the time of rituals regarding thanksgiving, harvest, and introspection.

We have been actively working and expressing… putting ourselves and our ideas out into the world, growing and changing. Now is the time to pause and go within, and take stock of how far we have come.  Our inner work, our growth, is our harvest.  Time to honor our journey and the rebalancing that has taken place within us.  Notice the seeds we planted and how they have blossomed thus far.  Lets open our hearts in gratitude.

gemini twins

The sign Gemini is a lighthearted sign that influences us to be more open and communicative and to try new things.  It encourages us to be more sociable, intellectual, and curious.  Each sun transit prevails a general mood and we are motivated differently with each zodiac sign.

Things to do while the Sun is in Gemini:

  • Write a letter
  • Speak in public
  • Share your truth or point of view
  • Initiate new friendships
  • Take a short trip
  • Do a nervous system cleanse or meditations to balance and repair the nervous system
  • Try new things…try a lot of different things
  • Reading
  • Learning, studying, gathering facts
  • Put your heads together to brainstorm new concepts
  • Devise new was to apply knowledge you already have

Sun transit through Gemini

sun in gemini

According to the Tropical astrology the sign Gemini is exalted from May 21st through June 21st. Gemini’s key phrase is “I think”. It is an air sign, occurring at the end of the season making it mutable.   A mutable sign occurs at the end of the season as the energies begin to shift into the new season making them more adaptable, sharp, resourceful, and flexible.   Gemini is the “quick communicator”.    Gemini’s key words are:  clever, versatile, inquisitive, charming, mental, witty, restless, adaptable, sociable, expressive, and fun.  It’s ruing planet is Mercury.

Gemini is a curious and intellectual sign.  Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. People take up interests that spark new ideas.  It encourages reading and studying.  Attitudes become inquisitive, clever, interested in “novelty”, and are willing to try something new just for the heck of it. We are more open to talking things over and sharing new ideas during this time.  Communication of all sorts seems to become effortless, instinctive, and enjoyable.  Gemini energy turns our attention to social networking, recovering friendships, and becoming extroverted.

Air signs are communicative and intellectual.  They like to weigh their options out and reason things out.  Gemini’s planetary ruler Mercury rules the mental body, style of thinking and all sorts of communication, including computers and telephones.  It influences our thoughts, connections, writing, and logic.  Mercury also has an effect on the nervous system.

Gemini constantly curates new ideas so existing facts can be compared and, if necessary, tossed aside. You may need an update in your ideas and this might become challenged by someone else’s opinion.  The trick is to not get upset because Gemini’s duality insists that there are two sides to every story, and no truth is sacred (for now).  It brings a keen skepticism motivated by our need to know the truth.  Use this energy to create new friendships, and open ourselves to truthful relationships and connections with the people in our lives now.  Learn to respect other people’s ways and points of view.

The shadow side to this energy is that we can become restless and scatter our energies around to a multiple things as a result of our curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.  Watch for idle gossip. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings. Watch out or becoming close-minded, opinionated, and nervous, ad your ideas becoming too scattered or insincere.   Also beware of saying one thing but then doing another…be mindful of that in people as well.  Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini.  If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as exercising, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy.  You might find it hard to concentrate on one thing because of all the chatter going on this month from everybody.

Overall, enjoy this lighthearted time.  This is the time to speak your truth.  Use this time to strengthen your capabilities and to express and communicate who you really are.  Explore and express your own opinions rather then relying on what others suggest you think. Gemini’s influence grants us some much needed flexibility and a playful realistic attitude about ourselves.

Sun transit through Taurus

taurus

Spring has sprung, love may be in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life.  According to the Tropical astrology  the Sun is exalted in Taurus from April 21, 2015 through May 20, 2015.   Taurus’ key phrase is “I have”.  It is the “steadfast worker”.  Being a fixed sign, occurring in the middle of the season when the energy of the season is at it’s height, Taurus can come off determined, powerful, intimidating and often stubborn.

In Taurus, the Sun is methodical, sensual, and receptive. This may not be the time for brilliant ideas or innovation but it is the time where you will have the tenacity and strength to follow through all the projects that were initiated during the Aries Sun.  You reap what you sow and this is the time to put in the work.  The Bull also motivates us to attain a level of very basic security, the kind accumulated through routine and through taking things slow.  Taurus is loyal to all that is familiar, and values longevity. The shadow side of Taurus is possessiveness and bullheadedness.

When the Sun moves through this earthy sign it’s time to stop and smell the roses.  Earth signs are practical, down to earth and they tend to be material and play it safe.  The Sun’s transit through Taurus is an invitation to get more grounded, practical, and enjoy our senses.  It’s time to reconnect with your body, being physical beings and all…  It’s time to honor your physical needs.  Taurus is all about engaging your senses…  a rewarding nice bubble bath, enjoying savory foods, the joy of physical touch.  Take the time to literally stop and smell the roses or get some bodywork done… align your energy fields, get a massage.  How about a healthy, tasty and nutritious diet?  Make dietary changes that will nourish and support your body.  Make time to honor Mother Earth and nature.  Sit outside for a couple of minutes during the day….get to know your land.  Watch the animals that live in your property, listen to the birds.

This is typically the time where plants start to take root, inspiring us to create better habits and routines for ourselves.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and Venus rules the throat and kidneys.  Our throat chakras may become vulnerable and need special attention and healing.  Venus is the god of LOVE and during this transit it puts the emphasis on a lot of self-love.

Taurus is also associated with money.    Around this time people seem to spend more money.  They indulge in the finer things in life, things that will bring tactile pleasure.  This is also a good time to work on manifesting more wealth and cash flow…work with this energy.

My second child is a Taurus and he always has to “have” things.  He is constantly asking “Can I have it?”..money, sea shells, rocks.  He touches everything and puts it in his mouth…engaging the senses.

Aries New Moon

new moon in ariesThis Saturday on April 18, 2015 at 2:57 p.m., we greet the Aries New Moon.  At the Aquarius New Moon you claimed your weird.  At the Pisces New Moon you connected with your Inner Muse so you can lead with Spirit.  Now at the Aries New Moon it’s time to take your weird self and shine*…Start something…*  Destiny is calling.  We are transitioning through a set of 4 fated New Moons, starting with last month’s New Moon in Pisces.  That means that it was in the end of a sign getting ready to transition into another constellation.  So we are having a little bit of both energies at play here with the New Moons.

When the Sun and the Moon meet up each month at a doorway, as in a New Moon, there is an alchemical call to turn what is lead within you, meaning your chattering mind, etc., into gold. *  Tracking the New Moon energy you’re reflecting a real deep relationship with the Moon.  And if you respond to the Moon, she will respond kindly back to you.  When you show up and work with these energies,  a doorway opens and something reveals.

At this New Moon, What are you being called to revolutionize?  Aries is all about new beginnings, blazing new trails, initiation energy of really making things happen.  It’s all about taking action.*  But before you can take action…what is needing to be healed will show up.

How often have you had these things or ideas that you are ready to birth?  And you show it to somebody, and unfortunately, they just don’t get it and they just YUCK on your YUM.   Where have you been YUCKED on and where are your YUMMY moments?  At this lunation, make a two column list.  On one side put YUCK and on the other side put YUM.  Make a list of those things you feel YUMMY about.  Whatever makes your heart sing and soar when you’re doing it.  And on the other side put those moments where you have been YUCKED on.  Those times where somebody’s intention bubbles up and says “You can’t do that.  Who do you think you are?  Why are you doing that for?”    How have you YUCKED on other people’s YUM?

fire breathingThere may be a teaching that wants to come forward or it may be part of your leadership right now.  There was somebody who just stomped on and crushed what you wanted to do…. a teacher, family, spouse, friend.  And now you finally have the spiritual muscle and are ready to do it.   There is no doubt in your mind that you’re ready to do it.  This is the space and place to claim it because 29 degrees is not just something that you want to ignore.  It’s Fated…It’s Destiny.*  You are going to have to connect with and trust your inner spirit that what you are doing is the right step and that it’s gonna lead you to where you want to be.

This is not the time to sit back.  You need to figure out what you want to do….Who you want to be…Because you’re planting seeds that 6 months from now you will harvest at the Aries Full Moon.  You’re going to be harvesting whatever intentions you planted these next couple of weeks;  So plant well.  Take advantage of the energy.  You just don’t want to go to sleep.  This is a time where you can manifest your dreams in a quicker way.  This is also a great time for Vision boards.

Stop discounting your inner knowing and allow divine guidance to come forward.  Tell people what you know in confidence.  Come out of the closet with your spiritual gifts and wisdom.  There is a lineage of grandmother’s and women who are holding space for us and all you have to do is show up and say YES.*

Wherever Aries is in your chart, that’s where you are called to lead.  Where is Aries in your birth chart?  That is where the action is right now.  What house?  Are there any other planets in that house?  Are they at 28 degrees or 29 degrees in Libras, Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn.  If so, then this New Moon is activating those planetary energies and asking you to tell your story in a different way.

There is a little bit of BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy going on here.  Your BIG ME is attributed to the Full Moon. It is the part of you who goes out and gets things done.  Your LITTLE ME is attributed with the New Moon and is the part of you that is still wounded.  It’s saying “Are you sure we can do this?”  Typically a New Moon occurs before the Full Moon but these past couple of months it has been reversed.  We had the Libra Full Moon last weekend before the Aries New Moon coming up on Saturday.  In Libra you are called to partner, balance, and harmonize and in Aries you are being called to lead, pioneer, and blaze new trails.

How are you being called to step up and lead.  It’s time to make a decision, at each Aries New Moon, that you claim whatever your part in the puzzle is.  You need to be firm in the conditions of what you want.  Stand ground.  What do you want to do?  How are you going to get it?  And if you’re confused, just take a breath and spend the next couple of days in nature and ask “Where did my YUM get YUCKED on?”  Because somebody in your past told you that you had to remain small.

marsMars is the ruler of Aries.  When Mars is trying to get healed it will flash into anger.  There are many types of anger.  We are human beings meant to cycle through the energy of emotion…joy, happiness, sadness, anger, etc… Since the Libra Full Moon people have been getting angry.  This is a good because when anger is expressed in a healthy way, it turns into passion.  And movements start from passion.

If you grew up in a family where anger was not allowed to be voiced then you may have a low, small voice.  And those issues of not being able to tell your truth… the anger behind the smile, is coming out for you to deal with so you can finally heal and move on.  And if anger shows up…birth that energy.  Give it a voice.  Give it some action.  Shout it.  Go to the beach and kick waves and yell “I’m really f***ing angry!”  It’s the best thing that you can do because instead of that energy being trapped in your body, it’s now been activated.

Venus, your heart knows what to do.  She knows what she wants to create, and now she gives Mars her marching orders.  Because Mars will always be in service to Venus.  Mars can take things and run with it.  It wants to motivate, fire things up.  So celebrate the anger.

What are you longing to create for yourself in your business… in your relationship… in your family?  You want to look at the task at hand.  What story is begging to be told.  Aries is all about asking you to take a risk.  Mars is a great energy.  It takes your intentions and helps to move them into action.  Mars is important.  If you don’t have a healed Mars, you will be trying to get things going but it just won’t get anywhere.  You need a healthy Mars.  Where is Mars in your body?  Where in your physical form are you holding all that Mars energy.

aries in the skyThese next three New Moons are going to be very important celestial events.  Aries is your ability to lead.  saying “YES” to leadership.  BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy.  Taurus is about your self-esteem and self-worth.  Do I have a grounded knowing who I am, what my value is.  I know how to create abundance.  I know how to ask for the money.  Gemini is about your voice.  Giving voice to your truth.

What’s your Yum gonna be this week leading up to the New Moon?  It’s a 9 month birthing process.  You’re gonna start to see stuff from this in 6 months and by January you’ll see it fully formed.

cocoonThis meditation was inspired by Spring and the death and rebirth process of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.  We all have, are, or will go through our own personal transformation.  I believe that for us humans, it’s not just a one time thing as we continue to evolve in our lives.  For some of us we will undergo several life changing transformations.  For some, we were sort of pushed in that process, and now we are here and we kinda have to see it through all the way.  While other times, we may have been desiring it are ready for it and can celebrate it.  Regardless of where you are, at  this particular moment, let it be a moment of much hope, love, and compassion  for you and on your journey.

There will be the use of color, symbolism, and visualization for this meditation.  In magick we use symbolism and the symbols hold magic.  When we understand these symbols at their core, their meaning holds much more value, depth, and power.  The symbols for this mediation are colors, visuals, and specific movements with your hands.  At the beginning of the meditation raise your hands up and point your hands together as to form a sealed cocoon.  For more of an effect you can tie visuals to specific words.

  • Shimmer – Sexy or Attraction
  • Glitter – Grace

 

 

Resurrection Meditation

In light of Spring…  In light of the death and rebirth process in nature….  In honor of our own death and rebirth process, this is the time where we acknowledge and nurture our very own transformation.

So please take a deep breath as you connect to ALL That Is and slowly raise your arms up, as we go within and retreat into our very own cocoon. Now that we are here.. What is it that you want to create or do?….  What is it now that you want to become or embody?….  What would you like to experience or have?….

And as you breathe out… you are releasing any inner critic or critical parent that you may have.  With every breath you breathe out…. you are letting go of any forms of resistance, guilt, any doubt, shame, or fear you may have… so that it dissipates along with the OLD YOU….  Keep breathing in LIFE!

Take another deep breath….And as you breathe in, breathe in the healing and support that these colors are offering.  What color do you need?….  What color has come to assist you?  And with every breath you take in, you are aligning with your highest aspect…..  With every breath, you are breathing in LIFE!  LIFE, to your new being, LIFE to your goals and dreams, LIFE to your body.

Please feel free to add whatever you need in this moment in life.  Whether it’s Sparkles for Magick, Rainbow for Bliss, Iridescent for Spirit, Shimmer for Attraction, Glow for Zeal, or Glitter for Blessings and Grace.

And now it is time for your emergence! It is now time to break out of your cocoon and emerge as a NEW BEING.   As we slowly start to lower our arms back down to our sides…. FEEL the NEW YOU emerging….THRIVING and ARRIVING!  And so it is!!
