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.

Magical Full Moon in Gemini

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.

Flaming New Moon and Eclipse

New moon and total solar eclipse in fiery Sagittarius, the seeker of spiritual truth.

This solar eclipse will only be visible tonight for a few minutes in Antarctica and the southern edges of South America and Australia. But don’t kid yourself; every eclipse delivers an energetic wallop to the entire planet.

And this eclipse event in Sagittarius has a signature energy that I can only describe as…

FLAME ON!!

We are receiving a turbo-charged download of transformative energies. And it’s positive, life affirming, passionate energies this time.

So, the only question is, where in your life do you need a turbo boost?

Where are you aching to make a dramatic shift? Focus there. Now is the time for positive, creative, joyful action. Even a tiny baby step is better than no action at all.

Stop debating.
No more whining.
Go For It.
Act now.

Warrior Full Moon

Full moon in fiery Aries, spiritual warrior for truth and justice. Mercury just went direct as well. Full steam ahead!

Life may feel hot and volatile right now. And you may get the urge to jump in and fix everything all at once — even though you probably don’t have a clue what you’re doing.

Energies are wild and spontaneous and hard to corral. Try to slow your roll a bit. There is no need to right every wrong at once. Breathe and carefully consider your choices.

You can burn off some of the fiery energy by clearing and organizing your space. Or exercising. Or dancing like a dervish. Or try some primal scream therapy.

Just don’t use it to blow up your entire life.

New Moon in Leo

New moon time is now. The moon begins her journey to wholeness this month in fiery Leo, the regal sign of self-love. La Luna is also illuminating Venus at the gate of love and compassion.

A new moon is not a time of action. Make this a time of dark, quiet reflection. Sit with yourself and ponder what you want to begin creating in the month ahead. Reflect, release and clarify who you are and what you want.

“A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation
and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly.
Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work,
like the universe…”

~Rumi

Justice Weeps

The ancient Goddess of Justice is weeping over the Bill Cosby case.

She reminds us that a legal system created and controlled by the patriarchy is not capable of dispensing JUSTiCE for all.

The rage of women is palpable in the air. The only question is… what will women decide to do with their rage?

Sagittarius Full Moon and Eclipse

This fiery full moon is is amplified by a total lunar eclipse. The next few days will be positively pulsating with the energies of transformation and expansion.

With change comes chaos. How best to handle all this wild, chaotic energy? Lena Stevens from the Power Path offers this advice:

 “It can be as uncomfortable as growing pains but if you stay present
and focused on improvement, the rewards are phenomenal.
Many indigenous peoples see this time as an anchor
for the future, the beginning of a new cycle.
What do you want? What do you need?
What is showing up for you?
~Lena Stevens

🌙

Focus on what you want to improve and change. But never stop expressing gratitude for the good things that are already present in your life. Dance with gratitude for what is, as you turn toward your heart’s desires.
