The Flower Moon

May the Full Flower Moon shine blessings upon you. This moon is also known as the Milk Moon because it arrives at a time where spring babies are nursing from their mothers. This is the time for fertility, rebirth, creation and abundance.

I chose to call upon The High Priestess archetype this month. The High Priestess is the spiritual feminine, she is the inner knowing. The crescent moon lays at her feet; she asks those who follow her to trust in the lunar cycles. The columns of Boaz and Jachin represent the gateway to inner wisdom of the Temple of Solomon, the first Jewish temple in Jerusalem. They also represent ying and yang: assertive and receptive energies.

The High Priestess is linked to the mysterious universal truths; she is the mistress of unconscious knowledge. Pay attention to the wisdom of your dreams. You know what you are, and you know what you want. Be open to manifesting some good opportunities to get there. What if everything that is happening to you is the universe trying to give you what you asked for?

Carry a piece of citrine with you this full moon to harness the power of your free will and manifest what you want. Citrine is a stone of abundance, attracting prosperity, success and money. You can hold citrine in your hand while you mediate on this moon’s affirmation, “I am constantly in bloom. I am refreshed, rejuvenated, and reborn.” You can also write this affirmation on a slip of paper, read it every day and burn it on the next new moon to release your spell. This is also the perfect time to start a moon journal. In a moon journal, you make an entry for each phase of the moon. I suggest starting with the new moon and the full moon, that’s just two entries per month. You can make up to eight entries per month for all of the moon phases.

If you’re looking for a yoga pose for your mediation and moon work, try flowering lotus pose. I have not mastered this pose quite yet, but I find it fun to try! If you’re a little too tight like me, work on some hip openers before adding this to your practice.

The full moon is a great time book a tarot reading that reflects on the past and gives perspective on the future. Readings can be done over the phone and online.

The Pink Moon

The Pink Moon is full this Tuesday at 10:35pm! Full moons are a time for reflection and gratitude for all that you have experienced this moon cycle. This full moon is also called the pink moon, after a wildflower that blooms during this time of year. No, the moon won’t actually turn pink, it will look like the usual moon that we know and love. Although, it will be a supermoon, and the first full moon of Spring.

Work with the energy of the full moon by finding the lessons and positive moments that you’ve had since March 24th when the moon was new. You’re about to enter a stage of rebirth and renewal, shedding your winter coat. What is no longer serving you that you have the power to let go? Find beauty in nature, and you will find beauty within yourself.

Rose quartz crystals are good aides for your pink moon energy work. Rose quartz emits soft feminine energy, love, peace, and tenderness. It can be worn as jewelry, carried in your pocket (or in your bra). I like to hold a sizable piece of polished rose quartz in my palm while mediating. I often hold rose quartz when giving readings to pass on an intention of love and care to my clients.

The yoga pose that I recommend trying out this month is Reclined Goddess, Supta Baddha Konasana; check out that link for a how to video! You lay on your back, and you can use blankets or bolsters to make this a heart opening exercise. The feet come together and the knees go out to the side like a butterfly, opening the hips. This pose uses gravity to achieve a deep stretch. Try it at the end of your next yoga session for a cool down and be open to receiving the energy of the full Pink Moon.

The Tarot card I chose for the full Pink Moon is the Magician! The Magician is an alchemist. He can bring dreams and ideas into reality. He has all of the tools of the tarot suits at his disposal. He can do anything he sets his mind to, but he is a tricky fellow. He is resourceful, creative and artistic. In the spirit of the full Pink Moon, call upon The Magician for mastery of a skill, for resourcefulness in a tight situation, and for the opportunity to connect with nature.

August 30 – September 5, 2018: The Magician

The Magician is number one in the tarot deck; the card of new beginnings and opportunities. The Magician easily manifests what he wants in this world.  He says, “abracadabra,” a phrase with Hebrew origins that means, “I will create as I speak.” He has all four suits of the tarot deck at his altar: wands, cups, swords and pentacles are at the ready.

This card is associated with Mercury, a planet that has some interesting things happening this week. On September 3rd Mercury is in Leo, at a significant angle to Venus in Libra. There will balance and harmony in relationships with others. You should take great care with your words. You are well equipped to promote your ideas clearly, and with style.

On the 5th, Mercury enters Virgo, which will improve your critical thinking skills and help you multitask, handling tedious details with ease. Like the Magician, you have all of the tools you need to accomplish your goals right at your fingertips. Set ambitious goals, and with the best of intentions, get to work!
