a message from Sarah-Jane Grace

Watching a tree change from season to season can invoke a plethora of different emotions from a sense of new life in the spring when leaves grow and buds form, to a quietening down after the leaves have fallen and the trees go into their wintry slumber. Animals, plants and trees move from season to season with an acceptance of the cycle of life: they adapt and they often find new ways of thriving even when they face adversity and hard times.

Human beings tend to create blocks in the natural flow by living in tree-less cities where an awareness of the natural cycles fades into the background. We are an adaptable species and find new ways of living and being as life goes on but there is a deeper sense of disconnection forging in the hearts and souls of so many as we break away from the natural cycles and flows of life. In this interconnected, 24/7, virtually driven world, there is a sense of constant stimulation and busy-ness with little time to notice the leaves on the trees changing or the majestic forests whispering in the moonlight. At the same time, human beings try to outsmart and outwit the natural cycles with technology and science, a great deal of which makes life a better experience but it often sits juxtaposed with the natural flow of things.

Living out of kilter with the rest of life feeds this deeper disconnection and it can be hard to feel like an integral part of the whole. Yet, we are. It’s easy to feel isolated from life and from the world in which we live when that world is concrete based, where life often feels more valid in a virtual world than the real world. People seek retreat in technology to distract themselves from life but distract themselves from themselves in the process. With so many souls retreating from the world there is a sense of a need for others to push in the other direction and reassert their connection to one another, earth and all who dwell on her. June looks set to be a month where this movement of ‘reconnection’ surges forwards inspiring many of us to stand up, be authentic and to reconnect fully to the universe. Although none of us can truly know what this will lead to, in a way, this doesn’t matter as it is the motivation to try that makes a difference.

The ripples of change are creating new patterns and shapes now, and there is a sense of a need to be more aware of these in order to become one with them. Life is changing whether we want it to or not: change is constant. It seems important to re-awaken fully over the days and weeks ahead as we begin to breathe more deeply into life and into ourselves once again. In a way there is no ‘do’ here, just a willingness to be authentic and to step fully into each and every moment. It is this willingness that creates a kind of osmosis effect which filters out and, like a leaf in the wind, is carried across time and space before it is breathed in again somewhere else; this is a constant force and it’s growing now as we all begin to reclaim a truer sense of balance within ourselves and with the true cycle and flow of life…

With love,

Sarah-Jane

Aries

You would be forgiven for feeling as though your life has been on fast forward recently as you have barely had time to take a breath as there has been so much to do, lots of people to see as well as a plethora of places to be. Although you usually thrive under pressure, you are wilting slightly at the moment. As a result, it seems you have lost sight of the bigger picture of your life and many goals and dreams are gathering dust on the shelf, and many of your usual priorities have slipped by the wayside as you have focused on the business of keeping on keeping on, trying not to buckle under all of those things to do, people to see and places to go. Top this with a pile of ought’s, must’s, and should’s as well as a good few ought not’s, should not’s and must not’s, and it’s easy to see why you are struggling!

June brings you an opportunity to reset the balance and reconnect to your true priorities in life. Whilst you may love to be the glue that holds everything and everyone else together, perhaps the time has come for you to be your own glue for a while? Taking care of your own needs from eating well, looking after your body, using your time wisely and balancing your energy all matter. This isn’t to say that you should drop everything and run for the hills, but maybe it’s time now to stop trying to be superhuman and instead try to be you? Love yourself for all that you are and know you are a vibrant, compassionate and passionate soul…

Taurus

The concept of breathing space looks set to continue to take centre stage in your life throughout June as you begin to find new ways to simplify your life. Although you are not one to deliberately over-complicate your life, it’s easy to get tied up in knots as you try to juggle all of your many responsibilities and duties, leaving you feeling somewhat bewildered in the spin of activity even though much, if not most, of it is not actually of your making. Of course, you are a giving soul and you love to help and support everyone around you. A result of such a choice (although it doesn’t always feel like a choice!) is an increasing sense of burden in your soul as you struggle to find the room to take a big, deep breath of air.

You often feel as though you are living in a breath-hold of epic proportions as you focus on keeping on keeping on, trying to do your best to keep all of those batons of responsibility up in the air. Yet slowly turning blue in the face really isn’t a good look for you and it certainly doesn’t seem to allow you the opportunity to thrive and blossom. Although you intuitively know it’s time to breathe, at some level you are still fighting it as you don’t want to feel as though you are letting anyone down by saying no or stepping back. You are not an insignificant piece of this puzzle: you matter! So, stop, breathe and allow your lungs to re-fill with life-affirming and life-giving sustenance as you simplify your life and smile…

Gemini

There are times in life for everything: moments or fragments in time to experience the infinite spectrum of emotions and thoughts, and to make choices and decisions in the blink of an eye. Life is a continuous rollercoaster of change and there are times when it feels as though all of those moments crash in on themselves in one big life changing bang which is so monumental, it can take your breath away. Although, thankfully, such moments are rare, there is a sense that you have been building up to something of a ‘crescendo of moments’ recently as you have pushed on and pushed ahead with vim, vigour and steely determination but the cost of this has been a disconnection from your emotional and spiritual roots.

You are a vibrant, inspirational and intuitive soul, and these gifts help you to ride the waves of life with wisdom so don’t ignore them by trying to ignore change: welcome it and know that the more consciously you ride with the waves, the more of an opportunity of a lifetime the forthcoming crescendo will prove to be. In many ways, life is as you make it and although embracing a ‘crescendo of moments’ will likely cause powerful ripples in the pool of your soul, there is a sense of optimism and hope that this is an opportunity to seize as it looks set to transport you towards a stronger sense of acceptance, hope and contentment than you have ever experienced before. June looks set to be a pivotal and liberating month for you, so take a deep breath and enjoy the ride…

Cancer

June is a special month, not least because it brings the summer solstice and the onset of ‘your time’ of the year. Yet this year it looks even more significant for you as there is a powerful sense of release in the air: a sense that you are preparing to consciously let go of the past, a willingness to stop chasing the future and a fuller awareness of where you are now. The release is connected to feeling your feet in the here and now rather than spending your time looking back at the path you’ve already walked and ahead at the path you hope to walk. Although both are important, neither are as significant as to where you are now as the present is the only truly defining moment anyone can ever have.

Of course, this is not a new concept to you, but understanding a concept and actually living it are not the same thing! You have a tendency to judge yourself on past choices and berate yourself for not being further ahead than where you are: you look to where you think you need to be instead of looking to where you are now, seeing a gap or a fault rather than feeling gratitude for all that you’ve already achieved. Being in the here and now doesn’t mean you should give up on dreams or goals! June looks set to be a month where opportunity flows freely in the here and now. Yesterday is behind you, tomorrow hasn’t happened yet; so take a deep breath and smile…

Leo

Breakthrough looks set to be a central theme in your life throughout June as you begin to shift your perspective towards your true priorities and goals in life. A time of breakthrough suggests a period of change and shift as you step from one chapter of your life to another, and you seem ready for this now. However, there is also a sense you are aware of a twist and a lurch in your solar plexus as you are not, as yet, clear as to what this change actually involves; you want it, need it and welcome it, but you are apprehensive all the same because you cannot see it, feel it or touch it. Yet, despite this uncertainty, there is a feeling of inevitability that change is coming anyway and your inner fighting spirit is preparing itself ‘just in case’ you need to resist the process.

However, take a breath and you will realise that the only fight is the one between you and, well, you, as this is your time to shine and your time to re-shape and re-define your life. Nothing in life is guaranteed or set in stone, and whilst this puts those butterflies in your solar plexus into a furious flutter, this is a good thing as it means you are not being complacent and you are also taking this important turning point in your life seriously. It’s easy to say ‘your life is in your hands’ as it can feel flippant, but feel the power in these words and trust that your life is in your hands. This period of breakthrough looks set to bring you an incredible opportunity to grab hold of life and to breathe deeply into each and every moment…

Virgo

June looks set to be a time for regaining the central ground of your life when it comes to your dreams, your beliefs and your thoughts. Although you are quite a balanced individual, recently there has been a sense of inner divide as you have split yourself into many different directions trying to be everything to everyone. As a result, you have lost your sure-footed stance in the central landscape of your inner world as you have oscillated between being there, here and over there. Trying to please all of the people all of the time rarely works especially when you forget to include yourself in the equation. You can rush around until you’re blue in the face trying to ‘get life right’ by doing or saying the right thing or chasing perfectionism, but unless this drive comes from the core of your being, it is likely to lead you further off balance as it is likely being driven by ‘ought’s’ and guilt rather than by compassion or that incredible inner sense of knowing you have.

You frequently forget you are the wisest person you know and acknowledging such a thing isn’t an act of big-headedness but an acceptance of your own gifts. Being you is an amazing gift and the more you embrace your wisdom, the more you will realise there really is no need to rush around from here, to there and back to here again in an attempt to be everything to everyone. In fact, you will realise that being here is really the only place you can ever truly be, so by being here consciously and willingly, you can begin to reclaim the central ground within and find a new level of balance and harmony in all areas of your life…

Libra

As you continue to find peace with your true nature and wholeheartedly accept your natural state of being is one of an active mind and an expansive, ever-evolving soul, there is a sense you are beginning to find a deeper sense of inner knowing as you stop trying to be the person you think you ought to be and instead focus on being the person you truly are. Authenticity brings you the opportunity to step from the shadows in order to experience the rising sun over a new dawn in your life. Being you is an art, it may be an easy concept to grasp but understanding the concept and actually living, breathing and doing it is very different. Being you means allowing your vibrancy and creativity to shine. Being you means not trying to be the person you think you ought to be any longer and having the courage to be the person you really are.

Whilst you may carry a modicum of doubt within you connected to being unsure if you actually know who the real you is, when you take a deep breath, you know and it becomes clear. You have spent a long time on the side lines of life trying to get life ‘right’ and waiting for the right moment to let your inner light shine brightly. June looks set to bring you such a moment and inspire you to have the courage and self-belief to be you, only you and truly you. Part of being human involves game playing, acting and hiding behind facades; everyone does it to some extent. However, for you the days of smoke and mirrors are over as you take a deep breath and shine…

Scorpio

You know only too well that trying to blend in isn’t possible when your uniqueness stands out. Trying not to get noticed when your soul illuminates the world is something of a thankless task as the harder you try to blend in, the more you stand out! Being you isn’t the easiest role to have in life but you thrive on the uncertainty and you blossom in the vibrancy and uniqueness as you simply love being you. Yet, there is a sense that you often curse such a role as it ‘gets in the way’ and creates minor and not-so-minor irritations in your life as you want to be you but you also want to be the you that others want you to be, the you that you think you should be and the you that you believe you need to be.

With so many versions of ‘you’ floating around, it’s perhaps not surprising you can feel a tad overwhelmed and confused as to whom exactly you are and which ‘you’ is you! You are a complex soul and an easy answer to this conundrum would likely prove unsatisfactory to you as you thrive on riddles and questions within questions. A straightforward answer would likely feel boring as it would mean you would no longer be trying to find the real you, you would actually be the real you instead. It seems the chase of the quest is far more exciting than the reality! The journey/quest brings you opportunity, adventure and uncertainty; the destination seemingly doesn’t. You feel you need to get to your destination but, at the same time, you don’t really want to. So, why not make the destination the journey and find new ways of living, breathing and being you…

Sagittarius

June looks set to be a month for continuing to lighten the load of your life as you begin to find new ways of living your life that feel both liberating and invigorating. There is one thing guaranteed to stoke the fires of your soul, even when the going feels tough, and that’s a tingle of adventure. You are a free spirit at heart and even though life often sees you sacrificing this in order to get on with the business of life, it’s hard for you to deny your true essence indefinitely as your free spirit finds ways to seep out and break free. In a way it takes far more effort to contain your free spirit and push ahead with life than it would to let your free spirit dance and find a new way of living and being. Of course, it’s easy to make such an observation but actually doing it may feel somewhat more challenging as it involves having complete faith in yourself and actually believing you have what it takes.

Although you say you know you have what it takes, wholeheartedly believing this takes courage as it means stepping beyond the safety net of your life and taking a leap into the vast unknown. It’s choosing to live your life fully, vibrantly and making the most of each and every moment. You long for your free spirit to soar into the sky once again as your creativity flows free and your sense of self expands beyond anything you thought possible. Yet, the only obstacle keeping you away from this is your own belief. You already are that free spirit, remember that and let the fire within you illuminate your soul…

Capricorn

June looks set to inspire you to breathe more deeply into the nooks and crannies within as you continue to create more space in your life, letting go of ‘stuff’ of all kinds and on all levels. Having a ‘spring clean’ of such epic proportions can invoke a great many emotions from sadness to letting go of stuff which has an emotional or sentimental attachment (from memories and beliefs to possessions and beyond) to a sense of liberation at the freedom created by lessening the load. You seem highly motivated now to continue this process in earnest as the more you let go of, the lighter and more energized you feel! As a result, there could be a tendency to get a bit ‘gung ho’ and over keen, so it’s important to think before you act, but, at the same time, too much procrastination can stifle and choke the process.

You have spent a long time carrying quite a burden in life due to the many duties and responsibilities you bear. At the same time, the natural human tendency to accumulate ‘stuff’ of all types builds up slowly over time and it can be hard to notice this until everything feels stagnant and stuck. This can lead to everything feeling even more cumbersome and heavy, leaving you feeling even more over-burdened, so it’s important to make the most of opportunities for a spring clean as the breathing space they create is precious. Yet, don’t feel you have to fill the spaces with other stuff; let them breathe and rest, like a field left fallow to recover where, in time, wild flowers flourish as new life appears. Spaces are a precious opportunity to rest in the moment and to keep life in balance, so savour them, treasure them and feel blessed to have them…

Aquarius

As you continue to embrace the philosophy of acceptance in your life, it seems you are beginning to feel a sense of peace growing within as you let go of your in-built tendency to push yourself hard in order to get from here to where you feel you need to be. You will always have aspirations of course as these inspire you to expand your boundaries and evolve, but it seems you are ready now to focus less on the gap between where you are and where you want to be as you are beginning to fully appreciate the value of the here and now. It’s easy to get caught up in an ever-growing spiral of chasing horizons and, over time, the pressure and frustration grows as the horizon never gets closer and goals ebb and flow with the passing of time.

Therefore having a clear and fixed goal is not always wise as it leaves little leeway for you to breathe, expand or change course, and it’s hard not to feel frustrated or disappointed if things don’t turn out quite as planned. June looks set to be a month of soul-searching as you seem ready to further expand your boundaries in life and allow yourself to grow ever more fluid in order to become one with the flow of life. Not like a piece of driftwood though, but like a champion surfer riding the crest of the waves; just as a surfer becomes one with the wave, it’s time now for you to become one with the true ebb and flow of life. Acceptance is a willingness to live more consciously in each and every moment; it is a willingness to breathe fully into life…

Pisces

June looks set to be a month of magic and sparkle as you sense a new stirring deep within you which fills you with tingles of excitement and anticipation. Life has felt undeniably heavy recently as you have focused most, if not all, of your energy towards the business of keeping on keeping on. Getting things done has been necessary but there has been little room for creativity or breathing space which has left you out of kilter and off balance. Although you are skilled at the art of balancing on one leg or juggling many batons at any one time, doing so constantly can become tiring as well as rather dull. You need the room to stretch, to wiggle, to wriggle and to be you as confinement or containment stifles your spirit and makes it hard for you to feel interconnected and an integral part of life.

You are a vibrant and passionate soul, and although you would do just about anything for anyone, the cost is an increasing disconnection from yourself as your essence starts to wither through lack of wiggle room. It can be hard being you as you often feel an intense wave of guilt within if you say no to someone or prioritise your own needs, but unless you do, the lack of space and movement will lead to cramps and discomfort. So, it seems you need to strike a new balance in yourself between balancing on one leg (or ideally striking a new pose) and taking some wiggle time for yourself. Wiggle time does not have to be an activity, it can simply be resting in stillness in the moment, but it needs to be something that nourishes you from the inside, out…

June Energy Report 2015

June Energy Report 2015

a message from Jennifer Hoffman
To read more of Jennifer’s insight, visit her website, Enlightening Life

May was a tough month that had very little to do with Mercury retrograde, although it was a factor. I wrote in the May Energy Report that it was a month for ‘taking action’ and it was, but action involves a lot of things besides jumping in the car and taking off. A lot of planning and preparation has to be done that leads up to the action and that’s what May was for. While I was ready to launch my rocket into the stratosphere, I hadn’t check to see whether it was at the launch pad yet, with ‘all systems go’. In May, every attempted step forward brought up something else for clearing and that was necessary so we can be aligned with and integrate what we are ready to do in June. In June we have some challenges, the biggest ones being stepping out after a very long period of feeling a lack of mobility and freedom, and allowing ourselves to dream really big.

After the first five months of 2015 June may feel like an easy ride but that will be the surface view. Remember the ducks that glide so effortlessly across the water? We don’t see their little feet paddling furiously beneath the surface. Flowing with grace and ease is accompanied by a lot of consistent effort, commitment, and intentional focus. Last month I wrote about separating the ‘wheat from the chaff’, and this is what we’ll see. Who is ready for change and who isn’t? We find out this month and it’s time to walk the talk.

This month starts with a full moon and lots of Gemini action. I have always viewed Gemini as the house of karma and it is highly underrated by the astrology community. But with the Sun, Mars, Mercury, and Saturn, and the new and full moon activity highlighting this house, expect some reminders of karmic cycles, soul groups, soul mates, and the like, especially since Mercury is in some aspect of its retrograde cycle all month. It’s a good idea to double check your communications, leave a little extra time cushion when traveling, and don’t leave details up to chance during this period.

The bigger action this month is all about the energy, as we can now start working with the energy expansion we have created with all of our prior healing and release work. At some point the release and healing must stop, and we have to start taking action. It’s like spending hours cooking a meal that you eventually have to put on the table and eat. It’s now dinner time. But this is also choice and decision time and we’ll now get to see who is ready for action and who isn’t, because while everyone can take action, when faced with that choice, they won’t all choose it. Any fears around change and transformation, around leaving a comfort zone, no matter how stagnant or uncomfortable it is, will come to the surface now.

On a very positive note, the Venus and Jupiter conjunction in Leo gives this a ‘dreams can come true’ ‘month, be sure to dream big and expect big rewards and outcomes. This is an expansive aspect that can bring out the best in everything. It can also bring out the most in everything, so what works will work very well, and what doesn’t work could be very obviously awful. At the end of the month it joins Uranus, so we can expect some surprises and unexpected outcomes.

That offsets Saturn retrograde going back into Scorpio for the last time, a final connection with a cycle that began in late 1985. This aspect lasts until mid-September, so be aware of any ‘blasts from the past’ that arise for you, especially things that happened thirty years ago and are coming around again. What are you going to do differently this time? You can repeat the cycle or create a new path, the choice is always available.

Another big item this month is the ongoing Mercury square Neptune, which doesn’t look like much but it is highly important. It’s the missing piece that allows us to see the complete big picture, to see the truth beyond the ‘truth’, to remove the veil of deception that we sometimes like to hide behind. Mercury represents the important detail that derails the entire process, Neptune is where we can fool ourselves or be fooled, which is another aspect of fooling ourselves.

For example, you are ready to go on a road trip and your car’s engine burns up after the first 50 miles because you put off getting the oil changed for months. Or you are waiting for an important phone call and your phone dies just as the call comes through because you forgot to charge it. There is a lot of deception around us, much of it disguised to appear as truth. This is also the month the Jade Helm military exercise begins in the US, a highly publicized and suspiciously regarded event. With Mercury square Neptune at the same time we have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction, trine Uranus, the truth about it may be revealed in ways that no one can ignore. And since Jade Helm is starting with Mercury stationary retrograde, opposite Saturn and square Neptune, its prospects for hiding the truth and deception don’t look very good. If our eyes are open, we will see very clearly.

We have a big choice to make this month, one that we have already made on many levels, and now it’s a matter of integrating it into our daily lives. Remember that ‘creating heaven on earth’ is an integration, not a takeover. I have been writing about the ‘Christed Consciousness’, which we embody as the divine human, rather than the ‘Christ Consciousness’ that is the martyred or wounded healer, since 2011. Are we ready to embrace our power to integrate our divinity into our humanity? Can we release our polarized beliefs that spirit is ‘good’ and human is ‘bad’? Any polarization is not helpful, we can’t be too spiritual or too human, and duality is the new keyword for us. No more either/or, we are now in the ‘both’ space or better yet, as our multi-dimensional capability increases, in the space of ‘many’.

At some point we have to stop doing healing work and act on what we have learned. Are we afraid of repeating the past? That is one choice, along with the choice to use our new awareness and understanding to create new pathways for energy to follow. We create the realities of the new paradigms and we have a lot of support to get started now. But it’s a combination of aiming our

In light of everything that is happening in June, Mercury retrograde takes a back seat but in Gemini, opposing the Saturn retrograde and square Neptune, you can probably expect some insights around karma, soul contracts and connections, soul mates and help you create closure where it is needed and/or long overdue. And the truth will be dangled around this month quite a bit, the truths we know, those we don’t know, the ones we don’t want to know, as well as those that we need to face up to. It all gets revealed in the end.

Here are some questions to consider for this month:

Do you have unconscious habits that could use an overhaul, including how you view the truth?

Are there truths, in the form of beliefs, that you need to change now, or to allow a new level of awareness to become true for you?

Have your connections become attachments and is your service to others being delivered as a servant, instead of as a master?

Can you self-ishly set new intentions for your life so you are operating at your highest potential vibration and setting your most expanded intentions?

What does Christed Consciousness mean to you and are you ready to stop being the Martyred Healer and consider what it means to live from a more powerful, self-focused perspective?

We have amazing support to dream really big this month and then be prepared to take focused action to make those dreams part of our reality, keeping in mind that taking action includes planning and preparation. We have to aim our energy in the direction we want it to flow before it creates the intended outcomes. You may be ready to launch your rocket into the stratosphere but first make sure it is on the launch pad, the gas tank is full, and it’s pointing in the right direction.

Have a great month.

Navigate Emotional Tides during Full Moon

Navigate Emotional Tides during Full Moon

a message from Selacia
To read more of Selacia’s insight, visit her website, Selacia and The Council of Twelve

We have a powerful full moon this week, June 2 in adventuresome Sagittarius, setting the stage for some unpredictable emotional undercurrents arising in your life. Relationships will be front and center, emotional tides swirling and getting your attention. In this article I give some tips for navigating these energies and keeping things in perspective.

This will help you begin June in a positive and powerful way, reducing the likelihood of re-dos and fixes. In my 2015 Predictions article I described the need this year to update the status quo in your life. This includes relationships, so vital to your progress and enlightenment. I’m mentioning this now because this week’s full moon is likely to shine the light on imbalances in your relationships – to yourself, to others, and to spirit.
Benefits of Knowing Ahead

When you are about to have a challenging energy cycle, there are benefits of knowing ahead and also reminding yourself during the cycle so you can stay present. Knowing what you are dealing with can add peace to your day, helping you to have a bigger picture.

Remember, too, that no cycle is all good or all bad. When there is a ripple on the water, it doesn’t mean a tidal wave is approaching. Don’t let fear color your experiences, preventing you from enjoying your day. Opportunities and benevolent situations will exist alongside challenges.
Tips for this Full Moon Week

The following are some suggestions to make the most of this week’s energies.

First – Ground yourself more regularly than usual now. You will need to be fully present and connected to your heart, and you can only do that to the extent you are grounded. Being grounded will help you avoid enlarging on issues that get illuminated by the full moon.

Second – Since emotions may be amplified, when the negative ones like anger arise, deal with them within yourself before you take actions or communicate with others. Use times like this to become more skilled managing your emotions. This is a vital key to good relationships.

Third – Full moons tend to bring to light what you couldn’t see before. Some of what you discover will trigger emotions – happy, sad, and everything in between. Do your best to stay neutral as new information is revealed. Even the things that really are personal to you are better viewed from the higher perspective of spirit. Invite that view so you can respond appropriately.

Fourth – This particular cycle may trigger some deep inner questions – about where you are really going and why you are living your life as you are. When these arise, don’t simply dismiss them or treat them like a repeat that has no resolution. Go deeper within yourself and contemplate these questions in a new way, asking spirit for a fresh approach.

Fifth – Right now is a beneficial time to update your view of how you express your soul purpose. The current energies support your receiving a new sense of clarity about your path. Therefore, be open to new information. It’s possible you could have overlooked a key activity or even a certain relationship crucial to your next steps.

You are a divine changemaker, here now to be at the forefront of creating a brand-new type of world. Deep within your bones, you know the merits of what you are doing and being. Remind yourself daily that you do not walk alone. You are surrounded and supported by countless beings who share your light-filled vision. Even if you sometimes can’t feel this, trust that the support is there.

The Enchantra are also called the dreamers of light because they sparkle and dazzle like the sun, the moon, and the stars. You will know they are near by the sound of their gentle, melodic singing in a mysterious language. They can only do good deeds and are abhorred by evil thoughts and evildoers. The idea with this spell is to bring the enchanting energy of the Enchantra into your life tonight and every night.

For this spell, you will need beautiful music, lots of light, and a mirror.

Turn on the music and lights, and then stand in front of the mirror. Call to the Enchantra three times:

Beautiful Enchantra, dreamers of light,
Come and make this a magical night.

Look at your reflection as it sparkles with the light of the Enchantra. Smile with a radiant brightness that dazzles. Take a deep breath, and sense the light moving inside as well as outside. Every part of your being shines brightly. Call to the Enchantra:

Beautiful Enchantra, dreamers of light,
Come and brighten my dreams tonight.

Running From the MoonCelebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Mother Shipton’s Day/St. Elmo’s Day

Running From the MoonJune 2

Mother Shipton’s Day/St. Elmo’s Day

Dedicated to Mother Shipton, this day still provokes centuries turies old controversy: Was Mother Shipton a gifted prophet or a child of the devil and, therefore, a Witch? According to the legend, Mother Shipton (Ursula Sontheil) was born in Knaresborough (Yorkshire) in 1488 and foretold many of the major events in English history. She eventually became the patron saint of working women, especially those of the lower classes employed in laundries and kitchens.

 

St. Elmo was a Syrian bishop and the patron tron saint of sailors. The electrical discharges-St. St. Elmo’s Fire-that flicker around ships during storms at this time of the year are believed to be a sign of his protection.

When The Full Moon Falls on Tuesday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell

in the branches of night ♰ im Geäst der NachtWhen The Full Moon Falls on Tuesday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell

 
For this Tuesday night Full Moon spell, we are working with fire magick and warrior energy. This spell incorporates one of the court cards from the tarot deck, the Knight of Swords. If you recall, the Knight of Swords can be summed up in two words: no fear!

 

The Knight of Swords is a card of movement, bravery and decisive action, which makes it ideal for this full moon spell.

 

The “No Fear” Spell

 

This spell is best worked outdoors.

Supplies are as follows:
1 red taper illuminator candle
1 black taper illuminator candle
2 coordinating black metal candle holders (use wrought iron, if possible)
A pin or nail to engrave Mars’s symbol on the candles
The Knight of Swords card from your tarot deck
A fireproof small metal cauldron
A sheet of paper, no larger than 6 inches square
Black ink pen
Rubbing alcohol
Wooden matches

 

An outdoor working area-make sure it is a flat, safe surface to set up all of the spell supplies on (you need to be outside for this one, otherwise you will set off the smoke alarms while you are burning the paper in the cauldron; dron; talk about blowing the magickal mood!)

 

You have to be careful with the fire. Anytime you have an open flame inside of a cauldron, fire pit, or fireplace and you add magick and intention, things tend to be unpredictable with the flames. Also, just a few drops of alcohol will help that paper burn. So don’t go overboard and singe yourself. Safety first! The spell fire is symbolic. A little fire held within a metal cauldron that is lit with intention does pack more power than you realize, so please be smart and safe and work this full moon spell with care.

 

Arrange the outdoor setup as follows. Engrave and then place the candles in their holders, and set them toward the back of your working area. Position the metal cauldron dron in the center. Leave a small area to place the Knight of Swords card in front of the cauldron, where it is easily visible. Set the rubbing alcohol, the matches, and paper and pen to the side and within reach.

 

To start, take up the paper and pen and write down what it is that you fear. Keep it short and to the point. Then, fold the paper in half and drop it into the cauldron. Sprinkle kle a bit of rubbing alcohol on the paper. Close up the bottle and set it off and away to the side. Now put your game face on. Call up whatever courage you can muster. Visualize those Spartan soldiers or the god Mars standing strong and right alongside of you. Come on, tap into that warrior energy. Growl. Get tough, and raise up some courageous energy. Hold your hands out and over the cauldron. Now repeat this verse with intention:

 

Mars energy is bolstered by the full moon light
I remove anxiety and stress on this night
Mighty warrior energy now defeats the shadows and fear
As I conjure bravery and courage to reside with me here!

 
Move your hands away from the cauldron. Step back from the work area and strike the match. Carefully drop it on top of the paper inside of the cauldron. If necessary, you can hold the match to the edge of the paper and encourage it to completely burn. If you need to use a couple of matches, that’s fine. Just drop the spent matches inside of the cauldron. Keep going until the paper is ash. Then close the spell with these lines:

 

Ashes to ashes and dust to moon dust
My courage soars and my magick is just
I work boldly with the days of witchery
This lunar spell is sealed; set the magick free!

 
You may snuff the black and red illuminator candles and take them inside with you. If you wish, use them again for other Tuesday spells or to repeat this spell if necessary. Allow the contents of the cauldron to cool completely, then take a little garden spade and bury the ashes in the garden. Pour water on top of the spot to make doubly sure nothing is smoldering. Tap your fist on the ground on top of it, and say:

 

So mote it be!

Magic to Honour the Moon – Make a Moon Altar

sing to the moonMagic to Honour the Moon – Make a Moon Altar

 

You could set up an altar to honour the phases of the Moon and the dark mysteries of the night. It doesn’t have to be large, just a small shelf or corner of a sideboard. Go with your instincts (as always!) on what items to put on your altar, but here are some suggestions to get you started:

 

Candles: Change the colour for each different phase of the Moon. (I would suggest white for waxing, red for full and black for waning to represent the three phases of the Triple Goddess.) Or you could use white or silver candles for the Moon and darker ones for the night such as deep red, forest green, purple or dark blue.

 

Herbs, crystals, shells, bowl of water: Use crystals that symbolise the Moon phases or the night. Night crystals might be apache tears, obsidian, angelite, celestite, smokey quartz, fluorite, quartz, jet, blue beryl, moonstone, selenite, pearl, opal, onyx, sodalite, dark agates, aquamarine and mother of pearl.

Making Your Own Moon Water

Lunar MothMaking Your Own Moon Water

Moon water is really simple to make and can be used for all sorts of spell work, rituals and anointing. It is useful to have in stock when you need to use the power of the Moon phase at a different time.

 

Using a dish, bowl or bottle, fill it with spring water and leave it outside (if it can be safely done) or on a windowsill so that it can soak up the power of the Full Moon. You can also do the same process on the New, Waxing, Waning or Dark Moon phases too. Once the water has absorbed the power of the Moon, you can keep it in an airtight bottle for future use.

 

You can also add a pinch of sea salt to the water to give it extra cleansing and purifying oomph.

The Full Moon

"The Moon"by japanfan12345 - 2The Full Moon

About 15 days after the after the New Moon, the Full Moon first appears. At this point the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, so she rises around sunset and sets around dawn.

The Sun shines fully on her face and tides are at their extremes again. Some may sense the pull of the Sun from one direction, and the Moon from the opposite, and their energy will feel a bit scattered.

Hold a party or an event, but be aware that the energy level is likely to be high and anything troublesome is likely to surface. Cook and stock up the freezer. Pay special attention to your creative ventures and your dreams.

This is a good time to try out forms of divinations such as scrying or tarot. Reflect about your goals, feelings and matters that have to do with relationship and family. It is also good for transformations, psychic abilities, strength, love, power and fertility.

The Full Moon is also an excellent time to cleanse, purify and charge your crystals. Lay them out so that the moonlight can hit them; if you can do so safely, leave them outside. If not, find a windowsill that catches the moonlight. Don’t just stop at crystals though, your magical tools will also benefit from soaking up the power of the moonlight.

As the Full Moon just passes, the time arrives to put the finishing touches on what you have been doing and to get ready for the quieter time to come. Enjoy beauty and art, listen to music.

If you have argued with someone but do not feel the issues are really vital, make up now. If you live near the sea the Full Moon is a wonderful time to visit the shoreline and (if safe and legal to do so) build a small fire. Collect small pieces of driftwood to build your fire and, as you lay each piece onto the fire, add a wish.

Once the fire is burning nicely, cast offerings into the flames as gifts to the Moon Goddess, such as herbs, flowers and leaves. Sit and watch as the fire burns. If you don’t live near the sea you could turn this into a visualisation for a Full Moon meditation.

If you are facing a challenge of any kind, need a boost to your courage, or want to enhance your passions, Tuesday is the day of the week for you. Some suggestions for Tuesday enchantments would include:

*Wearing the fiery colors associated with this day: scarlet, red, black, and orange. Don some of the more daring and bewitching colors of your wardrobe on Tuesdays and turn a few heads

*Carrying a bloodstone in your pocket or wearing garnet-studded jewelry to reinforce your convictions

*Working with protective and fire-associated plants such as the snapdragon, thistle, and holly to boost your shields and bravery

*Burning spicy-scented energy-enhancing candles to add a little magical aromatherapy to your home

*Cooking up a hearty meal featuring carrots, peppers, and garlic (all Mars foods and spices) to empower yourself for victory and success
