It has been such a long time since I posted. We have been through Beltane, Litha & Lammas & a supermoon in between. It was the wolf moon for north & Hay/Thunder moon for us. The January moon was also a blood moon so there was lots of strong heavy focus energies around us as we went through this moon.
This moon was preceded by some wonderful thunderstorms here, not that my familiars are very impressed by them, I certainly was. In December we had lots of rain with them also. We has quite celebratory family events for Beltane & Litha. I am not sure about others on the alternative path but juggling Beltane & Litha in between the commercial celebrations within our society makes it the most hectic time of year.
The January supermoon energy work...
While navigating this period my family managed to pack just about everything in, Litha was the tricky on we didn't actually get around to observing together. Such as it is we where unorganized & out of town for the sunflower festival (my kids love to refer to it as, sunflowers are our favorite flowers). The supermoon was intense for our household with a number of our familiars choosing this time to pass over the veil. This made it a bit stressful for my kids & myself at this time.
The night the full moon fell on here was lovely, we have been a 'heatwave' and that night was lovely, warm & still. I managed a small amount of energy work to re-energize my most common magickal tools. I also used this time to reaffirm my commitment to my path, offer gratitude for my place in this reality at this time & to off myself commitment to re organizing my strategies for the coming year/s.
Lammas the summer harvest with family, great friends & fabulous food...
We celebrated Lammas with family & friends yesterday, with a wonderful feast of whole fresh foods many of them home grown as well. Our fruit trees have been abundantly productive this year which is wonderful. We had home grown fruits at our celebration along with fresh home made breads. I enjoy these celebrations immensely & more so when our own produce can be used.
We have wonderful friends who travel a very long way to share these festival celebrations with us, something for which I am extremely grateful. It is always so wonderful to see them & catch up. We didn't actually get any craft work done this celebration however, something we will be doing for Mabon in March.
2019 brings us seasonal blue moon....
May 18th this year brings us a seasonal blue moon. This is a 3rd full moon in a season of 3 months that has 4 full moons. The full moon in May (the month of Samhain) is a great one to readdress any personal trauma you may want to put to rest completely. Also look at your home & personal sense of security, if you feel you need to renew or enhance these this is a good time. It is also a great time set any intentions for boosting your confidence & adding to your personal power.
This moon is very much a inner reflection moon. It would be a good time to perform a mediation to guide you to focusing on anything specific you should be addressing. After the meditation perform some energy work to address anything that comes up. As this is also the Samhain moon you might want to address anything regarding love ones passed, if you feel this is something you should be doing.
Have a wonderful summer season to all those in the southern hemisphere & to those in the north a wonderful winter experience
Blessed Be to you & yours.
