“Tell me it is not too late.
Tell me the sisters are awakening.
Tell me the moonlodge is rebuilt.
Tell me that the words of White Buffalo Calf Woman were not in vain.
Tell me that Kwan Yin’s heart is not breaking.
Tell me that Venus is safe.
Tell me that Artemis roams free in the woods.
Tell me that Lilith is welcome at your table.
Tell me that you remember that pleasure is holy to me.
Tell me that you refuse to believe that you delight in pain.”

Airy Aquarius new moon tonight.
New moon, New slate.
Open to the energies of this dark moon and see what arises.
How does this new moon affect you?
Where are your thoughts and emotions leading you now?
What is your vision for ypur future?
She is the Life/Death/Life force, she is the incubator. She is intuition, she is far-seer, she is deep listener, she is loyal heart. She encourages humans to remain multilingual; fluent in the languages of dreams, passion, and poetry. She whispers from night dreams, she leaves behind on the terrain of a woman’s soul a coarse hair and muddy footprints. These fill women with longing to find her, free her, and love her.”

Gossamer threads of life hold me,
Perched between Earth and Sky,
Weaving the web, dreaming the dream,
Through the two worlds I will fly.
With you as my muse, Mother,
I create the substance of dreams,
Allowing the artist within me
To fashion my life with esteem.
I mold the clay of experiences
Into a sacred Medicine Bowl,
Capturing the essence of living
As it sings deep in my soul.
Your secrets of creation, Mother,
Have taught me when to destroy
The chains that have bound me,
Limiting the expression of my joy.
You have taught me how to labor,
Giving birth to the visions within,
Setting them free like silver arrows,
Kindling the fire of Creation again.

Wild full moon in Gemini, the shape shifting, trickster fairy.
The fire of a Sagittarius Sun continues to burn bright and hot, fueled by the air of a Gemini Moon. But what will we do with all this fiery, transformative energy?
During the holidays, old hurts and pain tend to knock at our door. We can use all this fiery energy to fuel old hurts and resentments. That painful dance is a tradition as old as Yule.
Or… we can choose something new this year; We can choose to drop our old stories and use the fire to create a magical new tradition for ourselves.
We can love and honor ourselves and our needs. And when we’ve filled ourselves up with love, it will spill out of us and spread into the world, blessing everyone around us.
We can use the magic of Moonlight and Fire to turn this time into a season of love. Or not. It’s our choice.

New moon in airy Libra, the queen of justice and fair, balanced, egalitarian relationships.
A Libra new moon is the perfect time to sit quietly and contemplate if there are places in your life that are out of balance.
Look at your life like a loving gardener; even the most perfect, beautiful gardens require tending to stay balanced and beautiful.
What needs to be tended to in your life? What needs love and feeding? What needs to be cut back? What needs to be removed?
What is missing from your garden? What do you want (or need) to add to make your heart sing? How can you create a little space for the things you truly love and desire?
