August 2023 Fulle Blue Moon

Hello Beautiful Moonbeams!
On Wednesday, August 30 at 9:365 PM EST, the world will witness an enchanting celestial event – A Full Moon- Blue Moon- Super Moon. The typical Blue Moon (second full moon in the same month) occurs every 2.7 years, but the lunation this month is a rare occurrence that won't happen again until 2032. 
The Blue Moon Supermoon has deep spiritual significance as it is whispered that the veil between the physical and spiritual realms is thinner during this time, allowing for the easy exchange of energy and messages. It is also believed that any ritual performed will be several times more potent and that the Blue Moon holds the knowledge of the Goddess. 
This month has been focused on emotional release and self-care, and the moon will amplify this energy, helping us to let go of what no longer serves us and make space for new beginnings. While this may feel unsettling, we should focus on the promise of new beginnings. The Virgo season and Pisces moon will have a profound impact on the sun, moon, planets, potions, rituals, and people. It's essential to be aware of these influences before harnessing the power of this moon in any undertakings. Spiritually, this will be an amazing moon for honoring the Goddess and Drawing Down the moon's energy. Rituals focused on endings, new beginnings, or things that resonate with your desires and goals will be especially effective. This is also an excellent opportunity for spiritual cleansing and healing. 
Under the spell of dreamy Pisces, we will find ourselves drawn towards water. With Pisces' ability to tap into the unconscious, this full moon is the perfect time to connect with the profound sense of healing that water offers.
Take some time at the end of the month to make beautiful moon magick by immersing yourself in water and allowing yourself to tap into the hidden depths of your psyche. Let the influence of the moon guide you towards a more peaceful and rejuvenated state of being.
Namaste, goddesses!


The Power of Anointing Oils

The Power of Anointing Oils

The seven best ways of using essential oils effectively are inhalations, baths, compresses, facial steam, massage, palm inhalation & diffusers. They help bring essential oils and resins into your spiritual life—to calm the mind, sharpen concentration, inspire loving-kindness, increase awareness of prana, and get into deeply relaxed states of consciousness.

We may be familiar with the use of aroma-therapeutic oils to relax, change a state of mind or mood and for their powerful medicinal properties. Yet there is another important, and ancient, use of these potent substances for practices that range from the spiritual to the transformational...Anointing.

The word ‘anoint’ means to use oils in a ritual or ceremony of consecration by applying aromatic oils to the body. Anointing has been used in cultures around the world as an aid to meditation, to connect a person with their inner divine nature, in coming of age or rite of passage ceremonies, to prepare for ritual and to facilitate meaningful events such as giving birth, marriage or to mark the seasons.

Each Blue Moon potion or synergy is a magick spell for your soul and body. When choosing the right oils for you, just listen to your heart and mind! The messages received will lead you to the oils that will resonate with you as well as serve your needs. Anoint yourself or a loved one to balance and harmonize the heart chakra (mid energy center of the chakras), make needed changes, set intentions or bring on what is missing in your life.

To create an anointing ceremony, find a calm, serene setting, perhaps where you practice Yoga or meditate, since regular practice charges a space. If you have an altar seek items that have meaning for you and your intentions such as pictures of loved ones, candles, sacred objects, statues, flowers, herbs, crystals… anything with special meaning or memories. Take the chosen anointing oil or blend and apply to your neck and temples, your 3rd eye and your wrists. Finally, apply to the palms of your hands and gently massage and rub onto your heart center. Hold your hand over your heart while inhaling deeply of the aromatic fragrance and allow the oils to transport you deep into the deep heart of love.





New Moon August 2023


Hello Moonbeams!!!
As we enter the second half of the year, August is shaping up to be a significant month astrologically. With the dual birthday signs of Leo and Virgo, a fiery Leo New Moon on August 16th, the 3rd Mercury Retrograde on August 23rd and a powerful Blue Moon in dreamy Pisces rising on August 30th, there's a lot to look forward to. However, the event that began on July 22nd- Venus retrograde, will be active under this New Moon, bringing focus not only on love and relationship issues but also on our insecurities concerning money issues and self-worth. It's important to be kind to ourselves during this week of emotional ups and downs. 
The New Moon brings an energy of renewal, new beginnings, and self-reflection. It's an opportunity to manifest our desires and dreams. Use this time to set intentions for what you want in your life, reflect on your goals, or simply spend time alone in contemplation. Remember, the dark is where the magick happens.
This is an opportune time to set intentions related to self-confidence and self-love. Leo is ruled by the sun and the fire element - the realm of passion, desire and drive – encouraging us to be bold and brave. The time is right to focus on your Solar Plexus & Throat Chakras.  The 3rd Chakra is all about will, self-esteem and trust. According to mystics & yogis around the world it is the center of our being.  The Throat Chakra allows you to communicate your true self. After all you cannot speak your truth if you do not believe and love who you are. This August let the lion empower you to create the life you want and step back into your power.


August 2023 Full Moon


Hello beautiful moonbeams!!!
"The full moon is a time to rock and roll, to push boundaries, to dive headfirst into the embers, the surf, the divine."
We kick the powerful month of August off with an Aquarian Full Moon rising on the 1st at 2:32 p.m. ET. It is also a Super Moon, the 2nd of 4 which will appear in 2023.  An Aquarius Full Moon celebrates out of the box thinking, so…if you’ve felt at a dead-end, and stagnant, get ready for some unexpected plot twists!  For those following the lunar cycle of 29.5 days, you know August will be gifting us with 2 full moons. With 2 Super Moons & a Blue Moon, get ready moonbeams, the magick is about to begin! It's Leo season and the Aquarius Full Moon will illuminate what we have been holding onto and what is holding us back. The message? This is the time to take care of you. Use your intuition and trust your gut instincts to forge the path to bring clarity into your life…the time to stop hiding and shine your own unique light.
This laid-back moon wants to free you from old values and belief systems, very Aquarian indeed as they are the seekers, the non-conformists, the ones who get away with stuff because they are so easy to live with. Face it, moonbeams, it’s their AGE, we just live in it!
This full moon is also known as the Sturgeon or Grain Moon, an ode to the harvest and abundance of crops, grains and fish, embodying the final days of summer and the beginning of harvest season. August 1st is known as Lammas or Lughnasadh, the pagan celebration of the first harvest of the year, followed by the 2nd harvest, Mabon aka Fall Equinox, on September 23rd and the 3rd, Samhain on October 31st. All 3 mark the end of summer and the transition to autumn. This transition also symbolizes healing and change especially in matters of the heart as the Love Goddess Venus is deep in her retrograde journey right now. There is a possibility of renewed passion and old loves resurfacing at this time. You may find yourself examining your relationships with a clearer eye and mind.
The night of a Supermoon is one of the best nights for magick.  They’re ideal for charging crystals, jewelry, purified water, oils, healing tinctures, statues and other magical objects. Offer your gifts to the goddess and imagine her light charging them with her healing powers. You may sense this transformation occurring.
Full Moon Blessings, I will be out there gazing at her with you!!!

Full Moon July 17th

Hello Beautiful Moonbeams!!!
After the Full Moon in practical Capricorn, it is oh so lovely to welcome a soothing New Moon in Cancer. The dark moon rises at 2:32pm EST. This water sign signifies home, family, roots, and emotions. The moon rules the subconscious self while the sun rules the conscious self. Aligned, (the moon is the ruling planet of Cancer), the lunation ushers in a period of heightened karmic energy, filled with emotion, new opportunities and/or changes. The Moon simply loves to be home in Cancer!
Cancers have a deep attachment to emotional and physical security…the crab literally carries its home on its back, right?  When we talk of “home”, we tend to look outwards to our actual home space, but under July’s Cancer moon, it’s time to reflect on the inner home as well. Ask yourself, do I feel at home within myself? All New Moons call for taking care of the self and self-care NEEDS to be a priority now. This is the time to nourish both body and soul. Pay attention to what is stirred up under this moon. There is some divine magick at play now, bringing you more in tune with your feminine side because…Venus, the Goddess of love, is nearing retrograde on the 22nd. Venus retrogrades every 18 months and this one will put the Goddess in Leo until September 3. Retrograde energetics will have you tapping into divine feminine waters seeking emotional security, confidence, self-worth, and self-respect, so nourish yourself by taking care of yourself.  Spend some time nesting and strengthening relationships, especially issues of love. If you need to make some changes for the better, now is the time. As our ancestors did before us, use the Moon, her phases, her support and magick to manifest your wishes, needs and intentions. 

Spend some time in the water; if near the ocean allow her to wash over you, nourishing you with her healing waters. For those not near a water body, a healing bath might be just the thing.

Cancer New Moon Bath:
There is such a soothing and regenerative power to water…why not cleanse your energy under the Cancer moon. Pour in some sea salt scented with some rose, ylang ylang or a fave of mine frankincense with sweet orange. Submerge a crystal or 2 to charge your bath with the healing energy of the mineral world. Suggestion: moonstone, of course, which embodies feminine power and the energy of the moon itself. A few dried rose petals (organic of course) thrown in for the flowers calming effect on the nervous system. 
No worries if you cannot actually see the Moon from your window—it’s there and you will feel its presence!

Happy New Moon, Lovelies

July Full Moon 2023

Hello Beautiful Moonbeams!!!

Get those sparklers ready because the Full Moon will be at its peak at 4:39am PT/7:39am ET on July 3rd. Known as the Full Buck Moon, it is the first of 4 supermoons we will see in 2023 (supermoons are closer to the earth giving a larger than normal appearance). The 3rd of July also signals the opening of the Sirius Gateway (on the 4th) aligning the Sun with the star Sirius known as a “spiritual sun”- the star actually shines more brightly than the sun! This alignment is considered a powerful time for soul awakenings, insight, clarity, 3RD Eye awakening, and so much more. The vibrational aftereffects will be felt through August 30th when the skies grace us with another Supermoon-only this one’s a Blue Moon! Talk about an amazing couple of months to come!

Capricorn is represented by a figure that is part goat and part fish. The sea goat can climb the highest mountain as well as swim in the deepest seas. This duality serves them…the goat symbolizing the determination to steadily climb the path to achieve their goals while the fish has no problem diving into the emotional waters of inner wisdom seeking the guidance needed to light that path. With all this karmic energy affecting our physical bodies as well as our auric field and chakras, it is important to use this time to shine a light on your life and ask yourself what’s important and what’s not working anymore. Living in the chaos of today’s world, it is time to move with the moon through all Her phases because… “the spiral dance of the monthly lunar cycle is where the juice of revolution, transformation and magick lives for us”. 

Making A Lunar Infusion

A lunar infusion is like making sun tea, but by the moon! Flowers and aerial parts are best used in lunar infusions, but night blooming flowers like jasmine, and herbs from the Artemisia genus tend to be best. I personally love an overnight infusion of Mugwort, Sage, and Rosemary…but it’s fun to create new infusions every full moon. Sometimes I’ll go with all red colored herbs, or golden herbs. Or sometimes I will stick with mint. Have fun. Go wild. It is a full moon after all.

Blessed Summer Solstice Beautiful People

This is a time to tune into your dreams, your soul seeds, and your true heart essence…living the day with intention and magick. The summer solstice is a great time to pause & reflect on our intentions & vision for the year...a wake-up call to get moving!

Summer Solstice is the celebration of the peak of summer’s beauty. Depending on where you are in the world, it falls somewhere between June 20th & 21st. Summer Solstice is the longest day and the shortest night of the year & the time to see all things, Faerie. It is one of 8 Wiccan sabbats that mark the turning of the wheel of the year and is also known as Litha. It is Midsummer's Night, and it is time for the Sun King to embrace the Queen of Summer, ensuring the circle's continuation.

Midpoint in the calendar year, Summer Solstice/Litha represents the balance between light & dark, both outside & within you-the longest day of the year in the north & the longest night of the year in the southern hemisphere.
As the wheel turns toward the Summer Solstice, now is the perfect time to connect with green magick. The plant world has a message for you. Prepare a flower crown with all those gorgeous blooms (cause, really, who doesn’t like wearing one of those!). If near water, take the crown and release it into the water at days end. This is considered an offering to the Sun, and it is said to bring good luck until the next summer...and to those looking for love, a promise that they will soon find it. Herbs are now at their peak as well, both magically & therapeutically. So, gather them up, cut that St. John’s Wort and let the light, love & plant world fill you on this magical day.

So, until next time wishing you a beautiful and inspired Solstice! Shine Brightly!
With infinite love, ~Debbi


Hello Moonbeams!!!

A new moon occurs when the sun and moon align perfectly in the sky, merging dark and light bringing in a new energy. Junes New Moon graces our skies on the 17th at 9:36pm PST and June 18th at 12:36am EST in clever Gemini. 

The cosmic energy of this lunation is like a breath of fresh air, it is an air sign after all. Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury, is all about communication-movement, conversation, sharing of ideas and connection. The urge for social activity will be strong now, and inquisitive Gemini loves to chat, but think before you speak. Follow your gut and use your words wisely.

Effecting our moon Goddess Luna is an important transit- a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces. Expect a need to venture into the murky waters of your shadow. The moon is the ruler of the subconscious, and a new moon is especially introspective-a time to get in touch with our inner self and intuitive senses. Sometimes magick can be quite literal, and with the moon out of sight, this will be an ideal time for some self-care and shadow work, acknowledging the self that we typically like to keep hidden. This is an opportunity to reflect and bring awareness to what we are doing and what we want. You may find yourself dreaming more as this is a magickal time in many ways. This New Moon is the start of a lunar cycle which will bring in Solstice and the calming energy of Cancer season.  

Crystals & Oils for June’s New Moon Rituals-All yellow stones (yellow topaz, citrine, calcite), rainbow moonstone, quartz & lapis lazuli; lavender, lemon, orange, bergamot, grapefruit, lemongrass & jasmine essential oils. 

June Strawberry Moon


Hello Magical Beings!

The month of June is a celebration of sun, fire, the bounty of the land and magick…all l beginning with the Full Moon rising on June 3rd at 8:41pm PST and 11:41PM EST depending on location.  Making it even more exciting…this one is in the adventurous fire sign of Sagittarius. Here in the Northern Hemisphere summer is about to arrive. The days are long and the upcoming celebration of Litha, Summer Solstice, on June 20th fills this time with heat and passion-honoring the sun, which astrologically speaking is the light of the world.

This moon is widely known as the Strawberry Moon, a moniker given by the Algonquin tribes for the abundance of wild strawberries in the region. Other names for June’s moon include the Green Corn Moon, the Birth Moon, the Honey Moon and the Rose Moon. The strawberry was a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, due to its heart shape and red color. It should come as no surprise then that love is a central theme of the moon and the month. 1st-It is named for the Goddess of family, childbirth, relationships and marriage, Juno (the partner to Jupiter, ruler of Sag); 2nd- June has been the traditional marriage month for decades and 3rd-The romantic trip became known as “a honeymoon.”

Last months’ full moon had us facing our shadow self and our aspirations. Under the honest eyes of Sagittarius, it is time to let Luna’s light shine down on us as we focus on our heart’s pathways with the power to create and manifest.

 This is one of the sweetest full moons of the year. Go out and enjoy the sweetness that nature provides and most of all let love flow all around you.

Moon Magick

June's Rose moon, strawberry moon, and mead moon is a time for protection, making decisions, personal strength, love and fertility. Charge a bowl of strawberries under the light of the full moon and consume them the following day to possess the power of the moon inside you.

“Light a few pink & white candles…make a circle of flowers and strawberries…sit or stand in the circle visualizing them protecting you…know that you are safe and relaxed… breathing deeply, close your eyes and feel the power of the moon pouring into your circle, into you.”

Magical Moon Garden

Magical Moon Garden
What could be more -enchanted- than to cultivate your own Moon Garden. Honoring the -Silver- Goddess in all her glory with a fragrant & luminous evening garden. A wonderful offering which you will benefit from as well. Many night-blooming flowers are white and rely on strong fragrance, rather than bright colors, to attract insects. Plant night-bloomers near a bedroom window, where the breeze can carry the fragrance indoors right into your dreams. 
Plant some in a circle to mimic the Moon, they look terrific alongside silver-foliaged Lambs ears and Artemisia. Illuminated only by moonlight, pale flowers and foliage add a dreamy, ethereal feeling. You don’t need to have a big space, potted plants work too, just remember to add a trellis or place where vinery plants can grow onto, as, unless they feel secure they will not bloom. 
 You can save and dry flowers to use in Amulets, Talismans or -dress- a Moon candle. Add fresh flowers to a -special- oil you have fashioned on the Full Moon or to water for magical workings. Press flowers and leaves into a -Book of Shadows- or make magical bookmarks for special journals. Following a Moon planting calendar will add a magical touch and keep you in the flow of her cycles. You can place Moonstones and or Crystals in the dirt of these -pale- beauties to energize them for meditations and spells. Don’t forget when you take from a plant, to ask its permission and give thanks, an offering of water of food (plant) is a perfect -Thank you. 

Try these night-bloomers in your Moon Garden: 
⦁    Angels trumpet (Datura innoxia)- This vine annual has giant, trumpet-shaped, white flowers. You may need to discipline this rambunctious plant to keep it in line. 
⦁    Moonflower (Ipomoea alba)- Related to morning glory, this annual may climb to 10 feet. Tightly closed by day, its white flowers unfurl at dusk to release a lemony aroma. 
⦁    Four o'clock (Mirabilis jalapa) - In late afternoon, this annual's flowers pop open in often-speckled shades of red, yellow, white or rose. It grows bush-like to 3 feet. 
⦁    Yucca (Yucca filamentosa) - Flowers of this spiky perennial are open all day, but at night the droopy blossoms lift and release a soapy smell. Hardy in zones 4 to 9. 
⦁    Evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa 'Pink Petticoats')- This fast spreading perennial is hardy in zones 5 to 9, and its pale flowers release a sweet scent in the evening
