The Coming of Spring

Brigid by Laura Tempest Zakroff

Goddess Brigid is honored and celebrated at Imbolc in early Frebriary.

Brigid was born at sunrise with a flame of light shooting from her flaming red hair. Her sacred fire represents divine inspiration, warmth, safety, and home.

Brigid is also known to be a great healer and protector of life. Her wells are found all over Ireland. The waters of her wells hold healing powers. People have prayed and left offerings at her wells for thousands of years.

Ancient Nature Goddess Brigid brings the light of spring. It is said that flowers bloom wherever she walks.

May Brigid bless the house wherein you dwell
Bless every fireside every wall and door
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy
Bless every foot that walks its portals through
May Brigid bless the house that shelters you.

Emotional Full Moon in Cancer

The Moon’s Daughter by Seb McKinnon

Full moon in watery, emotional Cancer, the sign of the nurturing mother.

Expect your emotions to run high. You may be super sensitive and a bit off balance. Little upsets may seem huge.

Mother yourself. Shield yourself from the meanness of others until you feel stronger. Draw on your spiritual support. Hold your inner child close.

You’ve got this.

New Moon And Eclipse in Scorpio

New moon and Venus in Scorpio, the sign of the shaman / sorceress / witch. And a partial solar eclipse adds heat to the cauldron.

Focus on Self and Soul; use meditation, yoga, breath work, dance, time in nature to help you drop in and contemplate.

What do you need to release? Now is the time for letting go.

Watery Full Moon in Pisces

Full moon in watery Pisces. Emotions run high.

Surrender to any and all feelings that may arise in the next few days. Old emotional “demons” are surfacing. Simply acknowledge them, and open your heart. Remember that even your biggest demons can be healed through acceptance and love.

Embrace it all; your good, your bad, your ugly.

Leap of Faith by Lucy Campbell

Full moon in watery, emotional Cancer. And Pluto is in the mix, stirring up old fears.

“Everything you want is
on the other side of fear.”
~Jack Canfield

Time for a leap of faith.
You can do this.
Trust your heart and leap.

Nihilistic New Moon in Scorpio

Image by Fiona Hsieh

New moon in Scorpio, shamanic queen of dark, raw emotions and shadow work. Wild geomagnetic storms are bombarding us. And Uranus and Saturn continue to stir the pot. It’s crazy out there.

You may be feeling like everything is pointless, sad and bleak. But you’re simply exhausted from months of global chaos. Your nihilist shadow part has come out to dance for a day or two. It’s time to shed a skin.

Be gentle with your inner nihilist. Love yourself enough to hold your dark side close and listen to what it has to say. Underneath the pain, there is wisdom in your dark.

Allow yourself to weep, wail and gnash your teeth over the state of the world and your life. Yes, it’s true; a lot of things are f&%ked up. And it’s hard to see how this ends well. So weep and wail and lament your fate..

Yes there is darkness. But every good thing you do, every kindness you share ripples out and creates more light. So be kind to yourself and honor your darkness.

Time to shed the skin you’ve outgrown and see what’s underneath.

🌙
