Prepare Your Broomstick Forest Witch ~ Riding the Taurus Full Beaver Moon Lunar Eclipse
Early morning of today, November 19th, sensual Taurus boldly joined the cosmic line-up in the sky. You may have felt drawn these days, leading up and descending out, to reflect on what you value most in life and what makes you feel secure in times of change and potential chaos. As this moon is named after the beavers who seek shelter at this time of year and prepare for the colder months ahead, we too can nurture the things worth our energy and that foster a sense of grounded comfort in extreme times. It’s also sometimes called a Frost, Frosty, or Snow Moon due to frosts and early snow that can happen at this time of year.
Although only small patches of snow are still present at our elevation here, the mountain peaks still wear powdered white blankets, and the short, dark days speak of Winter hiding behind the barren aspen trees who’s leaves now create a colored mosaic path along the forest ground.
Although not quite full, a couple of days ago our late afternoon hike up the canyon steps along a waterfall, graced us with a mystical November Moonscape. In person, the moon was golden with a soft halo glow emanating.
We felt Winter stirring in the brisk air, while the silence of only those who enjoy an adventure was the music filling our hearts.
During the transition from the 18th to the 19th, we experienced the longest lasting partial lunar eclipse (although it was near-total at 97%) in nearly 600 years and won’t again take place for over 600 more. This is the longest event like this in a stretch of about a 1000 years.
When we went to bed last night, it was just at the beginning of the Moon passing into Earth’s shadow, so the sky and forest were fully illuminated. I went out on the back deck, as we had full view of it. I asked Dave if he wanted to see, but he was already tucked in warm for bed and said it was okay, he’ll feel it. I joined him and he joked to wake him for the eclipse. I said, “If I’m meant to see this once in a 1000 or so year event, something will wake me up.”
And so I guess I was, as nearly at the precise minute of the eclipse peak, something woke me up. I went into the living room to find Astrid laying there and then I stepped out on the back deck just a couple of feet and there it was – the Earth covering 97% of the Moon in a red veil, with a sliver of gold at the bottom left, and the sky and forest draped in darkness.
The stillness and unusual appearance felt surreal and as if anything is possible.
This November Moon in Taurus provides grounding support during unpredictable lunar eclipse energies to assist you in discovering your balance and peace anchor while things get stirred up.
We so often want to control and know, but we keep being asked to let go and trust…this is how we gain back our power. Look at how holding so tightly to any area of your life has held you back from starting something new and more fulfilling.
What is so scary about surrendering and opening to the new?
No matter how hard those voices say, you’re not worth it, you’re a failure, people will laugh at or judge you, you have to prove something, you can’t change your mind, you have to see it through, it’s too scary, etc., they are only whispers of your past…shadows of an old you…stories of a lineage that awaits you to break the cycle….
Energies during eclipses can be like a snow globe, shaking up all that sparkly mischief in whacky or wondrous ways, but if you can find ways to ground yourself while allowing things to take shape, everything will settle again in perhaps even more interesting, supportive, or nurturing ways than you imagined. This is a time of resetting old, unsustainable emotional baggage and anchoring in new core foundations that have longevity and sustainability.
Self worth, strong sense of purpose, security, balancing needs and wants and home and work, building something new with greater value, and deepening into more sensual, earthy experiences and connections with the natural world are all the guiding lights during the eclipsing and seasonal darkness.
And while energetic shifts are a-brewing you can get your own witchy brew on to ride these energetic waves with some broomstick magick!
I thought I’d lighten up this post, all those transitions you’re riding, and these eclipse energies with a little creative fun.
While I was out in nature this week it was like a lightning bolt zapped me from a fly-by witch…and instantly I found all the pieces she wanted me to use to create these Full Moon Eclipse broomsticks. I was literally in awe at how it all came together so seamlessly. A way to bring a little mischief, magick, and elemental alchemy into your daily life, while unapologetically letting your inner witch out.
These are great for your altar space, for ritual and ceremony, to create intention with, and simply to invite a bit of magick into your life. Perhaps you might even sweep away all that old stuff, clear the air for the new, or swish a portal open with a little swirl of your broom. 🙂
Whether for yourself or as a gift, these sweet broomsticks are sure to bring a smile and tickle your inner witch into a silly cackle.
Each one is completely unique, like you! All created from nature and organic items…some have mini crystals, pinecones, putka pod mini pumpkins, tiny feathers, dried flowers, and plant dyed organic material, ribbon, and twine. These elements making them the perfect Earthy essence adorned in Taurus beauty – just perfect for this November Moon’s energy. The mini pumpkins even remind me of the Full Moon Eclipse in their shape and coloring.
I completed them late afternoon yesterday, just hours before the eclipse.
I ended up with 11 – gotta love that master number, unplanned alignment – that I’m making available to any of you forest witches at heart, or perhaps for the beloved nature-loving witch in your life. I also had one left over that I made for myself because I love these so much!
So prepare your broomstick, forest witch, as you’re in for a wild, wonderly, ride!
You can order yours at the same link from before:
There are just two ready-made Magick Smudge Fans remaining – beautiful ones too!
I sold out of the mini mushroom kingdom ornament, half of the fans, and the moonstone point options for the Magick Wands. Some crystal point options now only have 1 remaining.
The only item that is available for pre-order is the Magick Wands. I removed the pre-order option on the fans, as I feel guided to just make the remaining that I have whenever I have free time to, and when they’re completed I’ll make them available on the same page.
And just a little reminder that I’ll be removing the Reiki, email and support, special discounted session page after December 3rd. So, if you were interested or feel like the shifting energies are a bit challenging, there’s a couple of weeks left for these.
For those of you who are part of the Collective Energy Dynamics Forum, I’ll be getting your recorded link session out soon. There was a delay with gathering everyone’s questions, but the Universe always has a way of aligning things. I imagine the Full Moon Eclipse has a little hand in what’s coming through. That said, please get your questions in by end of November for December’s session, as I want to get it out to everyone no later than the 12th.
What ever energy wave you’re riding right now, please know that we’re riding this together. It’s a wild ride these days and however you can find a way to invite a little more humor, curiosity, softening, and surrender, you will likely experience the shifts more gently. You may even come to know magick more intimately.
