“Add moonlight for contrast and shadowy suspense. Add sunlight for bright clarity and illumination. Mix them both in your soul-pallette and become the horizon, spreading into your full expanse.”
The energy is really such a pure essence of gentle, but powerful strength that comes from the courage of heart within.
The focal energy was my client’s Wolf Guardian and Spirit Walker, but then, as always, other energies come into play after I feel into things and what has been spoken and unspoken within the sharing between us.
This brought on the energy of 3 or the Trinity to incorporate through the Triple Goddess energy of Maiden, Mother, Crone, as aspects of my client through her Wolf Guide. They also tie into the Moon phases, which she is also very linked to, as well as symbolize Earth, Underworld and Heavens. These represent parts she is bringing together and integrating, as well as bringing forth in her service role in the world.
These parts are being honored as unique aspects, but also as a synergy of the union together they create and are needed to create – so each Wolf has her own individual strength within their own respect of solitude, but woven together in the web of life, as well as the pack they run in.
The upper left is the Maiden aspect depicted as a younger white Wolf pup representing a Star Child, hence wearing American Indian markings on her face of a shooting star around her eye that merge into feathers almost like a love tear drop (Earth and Cosmos connected – Star Child come to Earth). She is a free-spirit, in tune with her self-expression, creative wonder, exuberant joy, innocence, enchantment, new ideas and enthusiasm, and represents new beginnings and fresh perspectives. Her creativity also shown by her star marking.
To the upper right is the Mother aspect depicted by the mature Wolf howling at the Moon. She is in tune with the cycles of life, has come into her own, connected with her authenticity she is voicing passionately through clarity of her voice and what she has to communicate, has a soulful connection from her core that she is moving through her in service. She is about abundance, growth, gaining of knowledge and fulfillment on all levels.
And at the bottom, anchoring the three is the Crone aspect depicted by the older white Wolf. She represents wisdom, centeredness, balance, harmony from within, inner peace, powerful presence, knowingness, complete faith and truth, stillness of heart, shadow/darkness embraced. Interwoven in her beautiful bushy flowing tail is the word “trust” integrated as her fur.
At top is a Crescent Moon with parting thin veils of clouds that turn into feathers. To the right, almost looking like a bird emerging, and below that almost like a figure of a person or angel that becomes the larger feather that ends at a spiral tip. The feathers for freedom and flow. The clouds are parting to reveal clarity from the illusions of the veil and embracing the shadow revealed.
At center, an ethereal/cosmic star (felt Faery as well) of enlightenment with hexagon symbolism of soulful integration and all that the number 6 symbolism stands for – truth, union, harmony, balance, equality, integration, perfection, lovers, conjoining, communication, dependability, reliability.
I then dusted some ethereal feathers throughout that are floating/gliding down from the heavens with little stars dusted throughout and American Indian organic shapes into a spiral.
It’s just one of those pieces that moves your heart. At least, I know it did for me and I so flowed in enjoying to bring this energy to life for a special soul. ❤

On this magickal Sagitarrius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, I wanted to honor the energies abound. So much is available for the embracing. Don’t forget to review your life – discard, release, and then with abundant love and creative inspiration, dream the new into being. A time for wondrous reflection and illumination. If you thought your heart was open enough, it’s time to open it even more! They say we don’t utilize the full capacity of our brains, but the same holds true for our hearts. Let us not forget this healing jewel we each have access to. At any moment we can choose greater, more compassionate, present, limitless love. And this full moon with its abundant Sagitarrian energy, supports this beautifully.
This eclipse is an opportunity to examine your belief systems (Sagittarius) and keep an open mind to new ideas (Gemini – the sign we’re in this month) that will help you to create new structures (Saturn) for the change and transformation that is to come (Uranus/Pluto). Yet your heart must remain open, because the work of the soul (Chiron/Neptune) is not yet complete. So enter into the journey of this eclipse free from fear and with a spirit of adventure and curiosity and you will be on your way.
I am reminded of the Mayan Moon Goddess, Ix Chel, (synchronously that I have tattooed over my heart chakra on my back due to my Mayan, moon and rabbit connection, amongst other things, and in honor of the partnership with my dear departed bunny, Nestor) as I bask in this abundant, opportunistic energy and all that she embodies. Having Moon in Sagitarrius and being born on a full moon definitely makes today feel extra special for me personally, but collectively it is such a potent time of anchoring in what you desire.
Today, as I focus on a synergy of personal and collective healing and envisioning, creative painting, designing and Reiki, along with some other intentful manifesting, I feel my heart set aglow with her loveliness. Remember to dream bigger than ever before with intent for the highest good.
For those of you not familiar with Ix Chel, here is a description for you.
Ix Chel: The Mayan Moon Goddess or “Lady of the Rainbow.” The Mayans, like Buddhists, associated the moon with rabbits. Ix Chel is a shape-shifter, consorting with the rabbit in
spring, as the rabbit is considered the scribe of the moon calendar. She is often depicted holding a rabbit in her arms, a symbol of her life giving abundance and fertility, whose profile can be seen on the face of the moon. She is the Mayan Goddess of creativity (as inspiration for artists), magic, weaving, health, healing, sexuality, childbirth, and the
energy of all water-our most essential life giving ingredient. The Mayan stepped pyramid is Ix Chel’s mountain where she reigns as the feathered serpent energy of transformation.
