Once in a Blue Moon & Once in a Lifetime Mom
We have an incredibly rare (first one in 150+ years) Super Blue Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo today that took place between 4:51 am and 6:07 am. It is the second Supermoon of the month, which makes it known as a Blue Moon and therefore is a “once in a Blue Moon” occurrence. It also happens to be my mom’s 75th birthday today – happy birthday mom! Talk about a cosmic celebration for this milestone day and talk about a once in a lifetime mom. ❤
Seems appropriate she should get a big cheer all the way from the stars, as she is a star herself – always giving, loving, and carrying joy and lightness in her heart. I’m very grateful to have her as my mom and we are lucky to have someone like her on Earth along with all of the other Earth Angels, working to make this world a better place filled with kindness and compassion.
2018 is a big year for my family with milestone celebrations – my mom’s 75th birthday, my 45th birthday, my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary, Dave’s 55th birthday, and our 10th anniversary. It also seems to be a big year for other things, which of course include celebrating our new home being complete and some other personal shifts upcoming.
Interestingly, I have been feeling my birthday shift since end of December for some reason, perhaps because of all of the new and changes. I seem to already be in celebration mode along with my mom, which is no surprise since she and I are so close and always have been like two peas in a pod. This has included already gifting myself things, which I have found important to do these last couple of years, and receiving early birthday gifties. So, I feel we are celebrating together our 75th and 45th and of course gifties are on their way to mom, to add to the vegan pizza and cake celebration upcoming!
There will be no Full Moon in my birthday month of February, although last year there was a New Moon Solar Eclipse on my 44th. This “no Full Moon month” is another rare occurrence that happens about four times a century (the last was in 1999) and only takes place in February due to the lunar cycle being longer than the number of days this month has. And thus, January and March end up with two Full Moons as a result.
Anyway, I didn’t set my clock to wake to see the Moon this morning, but apparently my internal clock knew, as I woke at just after 5 am to use the restroom (hehe). I found Astrid in the living room taking in the Moon and found the Moon perfectly situated in an opening of the trees in the forest out back, which would put it directly over the lake at this time. I continued to watch it until the first light started to illuminate it again. But up until then, the moon was big and red and very ominously mysterious sitting in this portal of the Forest Portal.
I stated my intentions aloud and anything I wanted to release in order to create them.
When the light arrived, it was almost like an egg birthing on the left side of the moon because although it created a crescent shape as it extended right, it had this small protrusion where the light kissed the dark, making it very interesting looking.
I watched it until the moon moved behind the trees and went back to bed to relax and rest some more.
I’ve definitely been feeling the energy of this moon, as the last few days I’ve felt the need for more rest and nurturing than normal.
It offers a clearing and liberating energy, to uncover the real, live that consistently, and be the love of the New Earth on every level. I’ve been seeing and hearing of more and more people stepping into the life they dreamed of, making the impossible possible, and manifesting new shifts with their life and careers by going for their dreams all the way!
A potent portal for evolutionary change on a global scale and individually.
And a potent birthday for mom.
Kick Off 2018 With Loving Self-Nourishment
However you feel called to put closure to 2017 and welcome in 2018, the energies seem to point to an inward focus on extra nourishing self love on all levels. What ever has been nudging you softly or loudly, would be key to listen to and take action on for yourself. January 1st, 2018 will really kick off with a watery bang, as we enter the year with a Full Supermoon in Cancer alongside other planets also in Scorpio and Pisces – water everywhere! Pretty powerful stuff to start off this 11/2 year numerologically.
A lot of emotional, relationship, and sexual dynamics will continue to surface worldwide and present potential for resolutions, although they may feel explosive at first.
The end of 2017 has been more internal for me as I root and anchor energies in that I’ve been putting into motion over this last year, create our new sanctuary space, enjoy deeper connecting with Astrid, and get focused on what I am creating in 2018.
The forest around us has been the perfect environment and energy with all of this. It’s been amazing to reflect on all of the transformations that have taken place so quickly.
It’s incredible how much has happened this year and it’s almost surreal that it DID happen, as it was all wonderfully surprising to experience the greater expansion that took place with the way things manifested by listening and following the flow of energy.
I’ve been in reflection and in active mode of completing things, as I feel the second 2018 kicks in, things are going to move fast into the new directions that have been anchored. I’m already feeling the streaming in of that the last few days and today feels to be the last day of that slower movement forward because of the work and foundations that were being put into place.
Kind of reminds me of the squirrels and chipmunks I see constantly here around the house, scurrying around gathering nuts….I feel that’s what we’ve been doing, stocking up, nourishing, and prepping everything for this Winter of movement behind the scenes that is exploding quickly. The Winter has been delayed here, in comparison to last year’s biggest snow year in like 50 years, so there’s a sense of changing seasons with everything and surprises underway.
I’ve been feeling and saying that 2018 feels very pivotal in a new way. And since all the planets are going direct the day after the Full Supermoon, this seems to reiterate that feeling.
I’ve found reflections of completions and the very old me flowing through for full release and goodbye, as I completely leave behind all that is NOT now.
I’ve been a bit quieter online than usual because of these internal shifts, which is why you don’t see me as often right now.
I will continue to ride that out and flow with where the energy takes me into the New Year so that I can put focus where it is needed.
I really feel the excitement and freedom of moving beyond anything I have been doing and have been, to be the whole of me untethered by any past.
Astrid has been reflecting the same and together I sense an explosive year of creating together. She’s been shifting incredibly the last few days and getting revved up now that we have our shared room to work together in. We’re both excited.
So, where are you feeling called?
What feelings are holding you back from things?
You can utilize the energy of this Full Moon to bring to light those places of insecurity and fear, self-doubt and self-sabotage.
When we face those, we uncover the hindrances we’ve lent power to and reveal the answers to how to remove the obstacles and propel ourselves forward.
Wishing everyone an illuminating Full Moon, reflective New Year’s Eve, and a 2018 of harmony and consistency between thoughts, emotions, and actions. This will help manifest things efficiently and clearly.
Last Night’s Moon
Last night’s Full Supermoon in Gemini felt super potent…potent enough it woke me several times and I experienced Root Chakra integrative activations that kept me up for a bit with that shifting occurring at my tailbone. I worked with my black Tourmaline – an excellent partner for this and one of the power stones to support this Chakra – which did its magick. And although I was awake in intervals last night, I still woke up earlier than usual at 5:30 am feeling fully rested and amped up to go.
I watched the Moon for a bit during the night, as the whole room was illuminated by Her light since we have windows all around that we keep open since we are so high up.
She appeared both clear in the sky and then surrounded by clouds making Her appear like a blossoming eye peering through the veils.
Since I was up I decided to step out for a moment in the very chilly night air and at one time my camera capturing the Moon appearing to layer Herself with a smaller Moon in the background and larger in the foreground shooting off beams as if She was flying toward me on wings of light. Gemini twin energy in action?
As mentioned, I was wide awake very early at 5:30 am, feeling totally energized and the Moon remained present until 7:30 am just out front of our deck.
I find it interesting synchronicity that I’d been focused on the Moon energy and originations the last two days with my writing, which spread itself out in intervals all on its own and that portion completing on the day of the Full Moon.
I don’t plan these things, but sure do enjoy observing and then connecting the dots of how divine guidance plays out when we flow with what inspiration moves through us.
Needless to say, it felt like a lot of things shifted last night and I’m wondering if others felt it too?
I didn’t have a chance to post these yesterday, but now that I have a few more photos to add I thought today would be perfect. These are some photos from Sunday before the Supermoon, during the heightened time of the Supermoon, and the day of, as well as morning after (today).
So many magickal things showed up like 6 ladybugs on the water at my favorite spot in Lake Tahoe where I put Joy’s and Nestor’s ashes, a peace and love sign we stumbled upon that were created in pine cones in the forest that lit up with dancing light and colors in the camera lens, but weren’t there in the dusk hour otherwise, amazing essence of the Moon I caught when I woke in the middle of the night and morning of its fullness, so many crystalline light energies and rays the day after that even a duck couple were calling our attention to, and more!
I’ll let you enjoy them without any further descriptions, so you may absorb the energies along with me.
The “Blues” of My Alchemy
I have felt the potent healing power and fertile creative potential of this Full Supermoon (Beaver Moon) for sure, which we haven’t seen this close since 1948 and won’t again until 2034. So to say it provides great potential, is an understatement and there’s no coincidence it is aligned with so much on the collective scene going on like the election and its implications for opportunity on a grand scale.
In simple terms we’re looking at our values with this Taurus Moon and that goes for the self, life in general for ourselves and the collective, and our beliefs around money and abundance as well. Taurus brings in a calming, grounding energy to help us balance things and with a Scorpio Sun, tempers that with our passions brought to the surface in strong, focused, yet patient ways, while integrating our deepest shadow and hidden treasures.
Steady and persevering like the Tortoise and with a focus on abundance and gratitude, rather than lack and denial of the beauty inherent in and around us. A call again for a return to harmony with Earth and partnering with Nature to create change.
We have the ability to channel our emotions and passions productively and to release, cleanse, and transform the toxicity that is running the show.
Since the Moon symbolizes our inner world and all things emotionally hidden, our deepest desires and dreams, and yes, our unconscious shadow and underlying fears, this is a chance to bring it all to the surface and truly feel and see it, learn from it, and then creatively produce from the core truth of our essence once it is revealed, by peeling away those veils.
There’s huge potential for change taking place as we end 2016 – a collective “9” endings year for us, before we begin 2017 – a collective “1” beginnings year. What will we choose to cultivate in this new era?
This Supermoon is amplifying and illuminating the toxicity for us, collectively, that we can choose to cleanse, release, and transform.
Personally, it has illuminated important pieces for me for sure and also strengthened the affirmations of my own values and stance in reflective support of them.
In our new place we are surrounded by windows that we leave open all day and night, since we are high above everything and so we can receive the beauty and gifts of Nature 24 hours a day.
There are tree beings surrounding some, with extended arms offering their gifts.
There’s the lake and mountains offering their expansive wisdom.
And morning, day, and night the Sun and Moon dance in light and colors so brilliantly.
What has been most special is the Moon, which moves around to the windows during the middle of the night where Her light then glows directly on my face as I sleep.
I love waking and being illuminated by Her magick.
And with the Supermoon energy She has been supportive in helping me to move through my own emotions and mourning.
I found myself waking up in the middle of the night just two nights ago filled with feelings about Cosmo and feeling him strongly. And as I looked, the Moon was illuminating the room and I was drenched in Her light. I could see the rabbit on the Moon’s surface and knew that Her magick, along with my beloved rabbit family were helping me to heal.
I had a lot of emotional release through the night with the help of the Moon and Cosmo.
And it was just what I needed, as while I did experience release of emotions during the time leading up to and of Cosmo’s transition, I was also needing to be strong for him and Dave. Then we had the whole move transition the last couple of weeks, and now as it has come to closure I’m able to release the rest of my natural mourning process.
The Moon has been my best friend in that process helping to bring out all that needs to and then helping to turn it into alchemy for creative potency.
Some may say these are the “blues of sadness” I am moving through, but I feel them to be the “blues of magick.”
This evident in the colors that showed up all around me on our hike yesterday and that I was immersed in.
It was not a “sad” blue, but an “enchanted” blue revealing all the hues of its beauty that are my favorite and this movement through my own pains as the natural beauty inherent in love and life, felt to be embodied as my true aura and put me forever in the realm of my nature and essence.
I will continue to embrace the flow and release that this beautiful and powerful Supermoon assists me in, as well as invite any more to come forth that needs to be transmuted as well.
I did experience just that also on the hike yesterday, as in conversation I moved through, made conscious, and claimed something huge in a Scorpio way, which will have huge effects on my own shadow integrated.
It is not always easy, I know! But the support is there. It truly is, if you truly invite and embrace it.
Yesterday’s beautiful 8 mile hike on Angora Lakes Trail (I love the reference to rabbits in the name and there was even a young woman with a little dog named “Tiny” that went by us on the hike – that was one of Joy’s nicknames – so my sweet bunny loves were all around me) was incredible in so many ways. We keep discovering hidden gems of lakes and new hikes all the time here in the back country of Lake Tahoe.
I played with my shadow and invited her peacefully in.
I found a piece of an old honeycomb with potent hexagon sacred geometry.
I looked at the reflections in a puddle illuminating the truth.
I got to see Fallen Leaf Lake from above at a new perspective.
I saw more reflections at the lower lake of Angora in the light of the Sun.
I then discovered the alchemy within my emotions that revealed the magickal blue inherent always regardless of the light being present, as we came upon Angora Lake just as the Sun dipped behind the mountains. I am the light.
And that knowing creates a ripple effect out to everything I touch and experience, transforming it all instantly.
Angora Lake reminded me of a beloved place in Montana that I miss and will return to soon, being anchored by the ashes of my sweet Joy and Nestor.
I even wore my cosmic pants in honor of Cosmo.
There is new life awakening from the natural cycle of all things. And that’s worth smiling about.
11/11 Shifts Equal Crystal Offerings & New Beginnings
Not sure about the rest of you, but today’s 11/11 portal has proven to be powerful for some completions, shifts, and activations of new, not to mention tons of synchronicities. This revealed clear messages, which included that I was to release more crystals to new keepers, finalized complete organization of our new place and the preparation of the Magick Bus for selling and storing (will post info soon for anyone who may be interested), clarified some choices I needed to make, and put into motion a transaction for the beginning of the next part of the vision for our life and ventures.
All in time before my friend comes to visit us tomorrow, which synchronously got postponed from today, and with some cool alignments that magickally synched up without any orchestration on my part to bring it together on the right day and specific time even.
I saw the 11:11, 12:12, 1:11 and 2:22 portals today so far, and the last one being when the transaction was put forth. I then had my 2:26 birthday show up as well.
AND….just now as I finished writing this, 3:33 showed up. LOL!
Fun all around to observe for sure!
But one of the things I mentioned above about crystals moving on was a surprise, although fully welcome.
A few months ago I had a dream about a very specific, cosmic crystal that was being given to me. I had yet to discern if it was an ethereal crystal, was connected to one somewhat similar to it that I already had, or was in fact one that would be coming to me in the near future.
I discerned that it wasn’t the one I had and today I received the message that either it would come to me in tangible form or I’d be able to work with the ethereal one once I released most all of my remaining crystals I had, except for just a few key pieces.
And hence, I embraced that I would be letting go of my crystals to new keepers – some of which are raw, natural ones found along my journeys far and wide, and others simply special ones that had remained with me when most all others had moved on already.
They are all on the smaller size – hand held that is for ease of travel and healing work – yet potent. I’m still discerning how I will offer them.
I’ve been getting that I may offer them in groups of crystals, rather than each individually, and within each group would be one or a few free raw crystals from my findings along with them. I don’t know that I’ll be photographing everything and writing long descriptions like I usually do, as I haven’t the time to do that really.
So I may just offer them by sharing them within a group specifically named in reflection of their energy, type of crystals included, and general energies, and if someone feels called they’ll know it’s for them.
I’m more about alignment these days.
I always offer my crystals “at price” purchased, so they are equal exchanges, plus shipping and handling.
Synchronously, not long after I got this message on what I was to do with my crystals, I also received an email from someone looking for a specific crystal to purchase of which will actually be in the offering.
Love those reiterations.
Anyway, all that to say that today has been pretty powerful and next week feels to be so too, as Monday’s Full Supermoon will mark my fully immersing into my writing again and the new on ALL levels. It may even be when we hear news on what was put into action today, and more.
If you are interested in any crystals or specific energies of crystals from me, you can comment on this post and I’ll keep you in mind first when putting things together. Otherwise, look out for a short post on crystal offerings soon.
Until then, wishing you a magickal rest of the day and weekend, as we near our biggest Supermoon since 1948!
Creative potential is abundant for what you desire manifesting personally and collectively, in direct reflection of your self worth embraced.
