Time for a break

The pink full super moon is hitting us the night of April 7th-8th, and it has a message we all can use. It’s said that this is the time for a break. The time for some space. During these times, looking up at the expense of the nights sky and seeing the full moon build can bring peace and clarity. The moon teaches us that there are phases to life. That things change and we too are always changing. The full moon in Libra is welcoming a new reality, and in times like these, our reality changes by the day. We are urged to stay flexible and bend with those changes like a tree branch in the wind. It is essential if we want to focus on our well being, and in order to stay strong and grounded, without breaking. This new super moon nudges us to take a break, to look after ourselves, and feed our spirit in any way possible. Do whatever feels good to you and give yourself the gift of some space from all of this. Even if it just taking a few minutes to pause, to gaze at the moon tonight and allow peace and clarity to fill your soul.

I’ve always felt a deep connection to the moon and it’s magical glow draws me, leaving me in awe at it’s gaze. There is a comfort finding myself within it’s company, something that touches me deeply and overwhelms with deep feelings and emotions. It’s as if an old friend is visiting, someone I can see but not touch. May the full moon bring peace to all of us tonight and may you find yourself in comfort within it’s glow. 🙏🏼

Snow Moon

It’s the first of two super moons, (actually tomorrow February 9th, but posting this early so you can take advantage of it) called the Snow Moon. Just in case you are wondering what a super moon is, it’s 30% brighter and larger than usual. This incredible luminous super moon will heighten our energy and vibrations. It is said to increase subconscious awareness of our circumstances, relationships, and sense of self. It is about finding the courage and give us the initiative and strengths to chase our greatest desires. We look up at the glowing, super charged energy portal to ignite a fire in our souls.

Anytime we have a full moon in Leo, ruled by the sun, we experience this super charged portal as divine light, shining down on those things in our lives that feel heavy and dark. This full moon will allow us to shine that light and connect with our inner sun, clearing away anything that seeks to dim our inner flame.

We are reminded that life is made to be experienced, not controlled.

As the universe helps us more than ever to connect with that part of ourselves, we are asked to take some time for self reflection. What brings you a sense of purpose? What sets your soul on fire and fans your inner flame? Slow down and take a moment to see things with divine clarity to clear away anything that separates you from your purpose and fails to bring peace within your life.

This is an incredibly strengthening and motivating moon filled with incredible restorative energy. This moon relates back to “The Lions gate portal”, a post I wrote on July 26th and which I can’t get the link to work for the life of me to direct you there. We may find ourselves revisiting the themes that arose during that time or harvesting the seeds that we planted back then.

As we push past old fears and barriers, we usher in a time of tremendous breakthroughs. The time we all have been waiting for. Relationships will become into clearer focus, and we will naturally and intuitively realize what is causing disharmony.

Continue to move forward with honesty and sincerity, find your inner voice and see it stand firmly by your side. The projects that you start during this full moon will blossom into something truly beautiful. Allow yourself to shift, releasing those things that rest heavy on your spirit. The lessons here is balance. If you feel tensions rising, take a step back. Become at peace with your situation and circumstances. Find the balance within your life as you notice the positive shift this conjures. Find the balance between service and sacrifice and emotional sensitivity and emotional outbursts. By having trust and faith in yourself, those around you, and the universe, you are aligned to create a foundation of pure love.

Leo Full Moon is one filled with courage, strength, and initiative. Remember it is about finding balance and it is the key to having our greatest desires fulfilled, manifesting our wildest dreams. We are taught to always move from the heart. Our heart is our soul, it is our inner truth and most powerful tool. By liberating our hearts from the self imposed shackles, we have created, we give ourselves permission to try, fail, learn, and evolve. Vulnerability is not weakness, vulnerability is power.

Be gentle with yourself and know that the universe loves you and want you to succeed. Take a moment and smile at the big luminous Snow Moon tonight, knowing that your are supported and set up for the next wild step of your journey.

Full Wolf Moon in cancer

Picture credit – google

Last night we welcomed the first full moon of the year and also a new decade. I hope you got a good look at it and the weather cooperated in your part of the country. But even if you didn’t see it, the energy is still present, just as the moon is. I spent a good part last night drumming (again, second day in a row) and the energy was amazing. With closed eyes I could really feel it moving around, especially when I drummed louder and faster. This is such an important and powerful moon, affecting us all, I simply wanted to touch on it some more.

The power of the Wolf full Moon serves as a guide for you to trust your instincts and pay attention to what they’re trying to tell you. The Wolf symbolizes intelligence, loyalty, freedom, and social connections, demonstrating them in a more balanced manner. Try to focus and work with Wolf as your grand teacher for the next 28 days. Wolf is the sage, who after many winters upon the sacred path seeking the ways of wisdom, returns to share new knowledge with the tribe – Us.

You might feel a spiritual awakening coming into power, seeing things that used to be complex with more clarity. This full moon energy will be strong and powerful with waves of emotionally charged energy. It will help us feel inspired, release what is not needed, shed, and let go.

The eclipse was at the same time as the full moon and did not go unnoticed. Eclipses are important points of the heart aligning our soul path wiTh our soul destiny.

Wolf as a spirit animal reminds us to make cooperation a priority over competition. Valuable insights, ideas, and new teachings are coming your way, so pay close attention. It’s important to maintain your self-esteem and integrity and deeply trust in your inner knowing, even when you feel misunderstood or misaligned. You’re being spiritually and physically protected at all times, so there’s really no need to fear.

Enjoy

Full Moon drumming circle

It’s the first full moon of the year. The Wolf Moon in the sign of cancer, my birth sign. Tonight I will attend/resume my drumming circles and I’m excited. It’s been a few months since my last one in September of last year.

The full moon is a great time to release any energy that no longer serves you, while the new moon offers a time to set new intentions and to manifest anything you would like to see happen in your life. 2020 has started with a bang for me and it has been an emotional start, but all in a good way. Everything has intensified it seems. Awareness is raised and all feelings vibrate on a deeper level with higher sense of meaning. I feel acutely alive, feeling it all and I know that I am ready for whatever is next.

It’s a year that will be big for all of us, so have you felt the shift? Is something different that you can’t quite explain, but you feel it with certainty? Are you tolerating less, settling less, have you taken a more active part in being the co creator of your life? Well tonight is a time to release more of the things you have outgrown in your journey. Tonight we say goodbye as we release these things back to the universe.

Try to sit in a place where you can calm your mind without interruptions. Take a few deep breaths and think about what you want to release from your life. In your minds eye you can see and say something like this to seal your intentions.

“I release all the things from the last year that have caused any negative attachment. I prepare and welcome new changes, new lessons, and new adventures. I welcome new opportunities to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Feel how peace and serenity fills your heart as this energy leaves you. Consider it done and let go.

Black Moon rising

Picture of my moon lamp, a special birthday present ❤️

So what is a black moon? When a month has 2 new moons, the second new moon is a black moon. July had two with the second one being today on this last day of July.

There’s about to be a shift in your life. A good one this time and I believe we can all use it. Get ready for your blessings. You’ve been through enough and a breakthrough is on the way. Don’t doubt it, just claim it.

This new moon ends a chaotic July new moon full moon eclipse, and August will feel more like normal. This new moon also marks the end of mercury retrograde which ends on the same day. New moons are times of new energy so expect new miracles. It’s also a super moon, doubling the miracles and breakthroughs. With the new moon in Leo you can expect love, fun and exciting vibes.

Get ready….

As the years pass

I am reminiscing this year, back to last year as Mom and I celebrated our birthdays together. It’s been so rare since I moved to the US and the birthdays we have celebrated together are not many. This picture was taken last year as Mom turned 80 (yesterday), and against all odds we made it happen to get her out of the nursing home and celebrate this special day at one of her favorite places, Colmberg Castle.

The next day (today) which is my birthday I was on the way taking the train to Mittenwald, a beautiful Bavarian alpine village. I was so excited of taking the train since it had been decades I last got to ride the train, and I still remember my excitement in such a simple thing.

What I am reminiscing about is how different this year is for Mom. I found her in a very different frame of mind as I FaceTimed with her this morning, and sometimes it’s hard for me not to take on the responsibility for her being. I know she had choices in earlier years, and I know that there is only so much I can take on and carry for her, but it’s still tough to realize that these things are out of my control.

I could tell right away that she was sad and depressed feeling. There was an unrest, an uneasy feeling and it didn’t take long before she mentioned that she wants to go home to her own house. She struggles through our conversation, trying to be cordial and polite, to be happy for it was her birthday, to laugh and joke with me. She managed alright, but it was hard work trying to keep the conversation lifted. I felt mentally drained after talking to her and it was hard not to feel sad for her. In a heartbeat I wished that same smile as last year could have repeated itself this year, but it wasn’t so. She struggles and has been in the nursing home over a year. From time to time it is so obvious and I don’t think she will ever adjust. She is waiting on me to bring her home. It’s a heavy burden that sometimes threatens to crush me underbite weight.

It made me sad talking to her, just witnessing the difference between last year and this year. Although she was still recovering from almost losing her life in the above picture, it’s written all over her face how happy she was to be out. There was purpose and hope, a will to go on, newfound inspiration in life. I see it slowly dwindling as hope is fading, and of course not all days are equal. She has her good ones just like we do until something happens and then the bad ones catch up again. It’s always written all over her face and you can’t miss it. I have thought about all of this so much, how to help her, how to help myself first and become healthy enough to even be in a position to do so. Round and round it goes and there is never a solution. There is still the house and all of her belongings. To sell it would mean the end of our relationship as she would never forgive me. Sometimes the lose ends are simply too overwhelming.

Half Blood Thunder Moon

Today we say hello to the new moon entering into the sign of cancer. This one is especially exciting to me since it is my birth month and some other great people including Mom and my soul sister are also born in July.

However the moon will not be visible, but still have a dramatic, if brief, effect on about 350,000 eclipse chaser standing underneath its shadow in central Chile and Argentina.

Every 29 days the moon gets roughly in between the earth and the sun, and disappears from sight for a day or so. However, occasionally, there is a direct hit, and the moon completely blocks out the sun for a few minutes. Not only will that rare event occur today, but the moons favorable positioning will also cause a lunar eclipse in two weeks.

The new moon is also a time to set your intentions for the month. You can start by allowing and granting yourself a little time to become still. As you sit, or lay back, focus on your breathing until your breathe becomes rhythmic and even. Think about your life, your dreams, your goals. What is that that you want to focus on this month? What do you want to achieve? What is most important, now? As you concentrate on whatever it is that you want to focus on, consider it done and know that plans are already unfolding. Look at it as if past tense, as if it has happened already, and give thanks for the blessings that are heading your way. Make your intentions known and leave everything else to the universe to manifest. Sit back, relax and get excited.

Happy New Moon.
