Full Flower Moon May 21, 2016

The May Full Moon falls in the sign of Sagittarius on the 21st at 00:00UTC and is part of a bigger cycle that won’t be fully complete until June 20th.

In June, we have a Full Moon in Sagittarius. Having two Full Moons in the same sign is very rare and indicates that whatever May’s Full Moon manifests in our lives is likely to be incomplete until June’s Full Moon

This means that around the 21st of May we are going to get a glimmer of the cycle that is unfolding for us, and what lesson this Full Moon has come to instill in our lives.

Full Moon’s are like the peak point of energy in a cycle. Often on a Full Moon, we can see things manifesting in our lives. Full Moons are our opportunity to reap what we have been sowing and harvest the efforts of our work, but this Full Moon is slightly different.

This is the month of the Full Flower Moon. Can you guess how this full Moon got its name? That’s right:) Flowers are becoming abundant now. They are literally everywhere. It can also be known as the Corn Planting Moon, the Milk Moon, and the Hare Moon.

The Earth is most fertile right now so it’s time to start planting!

It’s a great night to plant something in the garden. Get a baby sapling and plant it in honor of tonight’s moon! Bring fresh flowers into your house, or design a headband made of flowers for yourself.

The energy on the night of a full moon is very powerful. It’s a perfect night to recharge your energy.

So on this full moon let the emphasis to be on you! Use this time to draw down the energy of the moon and empower yourself for your working and what you wish throughout the month.

Full moon blessings my friends!

May is Fibromyalgia Awareness Month

Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.

May 12 is the designated Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. Throughout the month of May please share awareness about Fibromyalgia.

Several years ago Fibromyalgia was a disability categorized as “psychological”. Now it is recognized as a very real physical condition that affects every aspect of a person’s life.

It’s hard to understand how it feels to be told you are mentally having a problem when your body will not perform what you are asking it to do. How can that possibly be mental? Patients were, in effect, being told it was “all in your head.” I went through this with people I knew once I became unable to function because of Fibromyalgia. Everyone wants to tell you that you just need to get up and do something and you will feel better. They don’t understand you barely have the strength to make it to the bathroom and back. It is often hard to get emotional support from your family and friends.

Fortunately, the medical field has produced enough research to re-classify it as a true physical disability that is often paired with studies and treatments for arthritis and rheumatism. No longer can people say that it is in your head.

Here is a brief list of common symptoms of this disease:

  • Chronic pain throughout the body
  • Burning, numbness and tingling
  • Tenderness when pressure is placed on or around the neck, elbows, hips, thighs and knees.
  • Sleep disorders
  • Chronic fatigue or exhaustion
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Facial Pain
  • Jaw Pain (TMJ)
  • Memory Loss
  • Irritable Bowel
  • Tension or Migraine Headaches
  • High sensitivity to foods and medications (allergic type reaction).
  • Minimal tolerance to heat and cold
  • High sensitivity to bright lights and sounds
  • Hair Loss

Because symptoms develop gradually, this disease is often misdiagnosed. Based on the American College of Rheumatology a person is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when he or she suffers pain throughout the body for at least three months and has 11 out of 18 tender points presen

Fibromyalgia basically means pain in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It affects mostly women and up to 4% of the general population. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

People with FMS have the additional stress and frustration in their lives of trying to explain (all the time) why today they can do almost anything and the next day they can barely get out of bed. Depression is a frequent side-effect of FMS and who can question it? Living with a body-wide toothache-like pain constantly is something only fellow sufferers can truly understand.

Niagara Falls will be PURPLE from 10:15 to 10:30 PM EST May 12th for Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. You can watch this event live by Clicking Here

It is estimated that Fibromyalgia

My prayers go out to everyone who is affected by this condition as I understand it well having lived with it for over 42 years. Please spread the word and let the world know about Fibromyalgia.

Remember millions of people worldwide suffer from Fibromyalgia. They lose their independence, their lives, and often their family. Raise your awareness and support those with invisible illnesses.

Many blessings,

New Moon May 6, 2016

New Moon Mantra

The New Moon on May 6 is a SuperMoon. Life could be feeling quite intense for you at this time.  This Moon will tug on you. It may affect your consciousness. It could intensify your feelings. These intense feelings can be coming from Mercury being in retrograde.  This Moon is shining the light on what you love and value. When you align your goals with your core values, this promotes your success.

The Taurus Moon is reminding you to take life slow. Be patient. Do not be in a hurry.

Your power is in the choices you make today and every day. Your future is determined by it. Your freedom and joy is in your ability to live in alignment with your true values. What you love and value is unique to you. It makes you what you are. What you are in truth is far more important than what you do. The world defines you by what you do. This is too limiting. Who and what you are is much more interesting. This is finding the Real You!

Pay attention to important insights that come to you now. The Creator is talking to you. You can gain wisdom now for your life. There are times to take action. There are times to wait and listen. Trust your intuition. Trust your instincts. This is not the time to push. Flow with the energy and see where it takes you.. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Moon Manifestation
The new moon is a time of initiation and new beginnings. It is the time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in your life. Making a wish, an intention, a promise, or a vow is a common custom

Keep in mind that our words and thoughts are vibrations so any intentions stated or written down carry power, so take care to really manifest exactly what you would like by feeling that vibration.. The moon has her phases and so do we, that is why it is always good to think it through to become clear about what you want .

Set your New Moon Intentions in Motion

Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, use the white light, a sage smudging, and/or by burning some incense.

Light one or more candles, have your favorite crystals with you.  Have anything you consider sacred with you.

Center and calm yourself.  Take some deep cleansing breaths. Play music that is peaceful and meditative.

Have a notebook handy and Begin writing down your desires. Write out what you want to manifest during the next month. These goals can range from small to big. Do not limit yourself. Sometimes obtaining the smaller goals helps you have confidence that you can manifest the bigger goals.

Now close your eyes and imagine what it would feel like to attain your desires and goals. Make sure to not come from the place of feeling the “wanting” part but really feel as if you have already achieved those moments and goals, picture what that feels like.

In this notebook you can also use it as a manifestation scrapbook or make a vision board where you can paste in pictures or catalog clippings of items that you want to manifest. You will soon be amazed how these things begin to find their way into your life once you start this process.

During the month when an item on your new moon list comes to you, feel free to cross it off!

Be Blessed. Be safe. Be well. You are loved. All Are One

Mercury Retrograde April 29 to May 23

Mercury in retrograde

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

Time for your friend and mine, the planet Mercury to turn retrograde. Two words that send shivers down some people’s spines while others take a nonchalant attitude.

When is this Mercury Retrograde?

This year, Mercury retrogrades in the Earth signs, and from April 29th to May 23rd

It is a time when anything can happen. I find this to be a time to take it easy and reflect on life rather than try to be going full forward at a fast pace. This is what causes some people to have problems during Mercury Retrograde.

Taurus likes to know what is around the corner. It is a sign of planning with the need to feel secure and stable.

So what does this Mercury Retrograde mean?

Losing paperwork or money frequently happens during this time. Take a little extra caution and make sure you check over your finances carefully during this time.

If you think of Taurus being an earth sign, and Mercury ruling Gemini – an air sign – you can get the general idea of how this period will pan out. Astrologically, Earth and Air signs are not the most compatible of combinations.

Anything good about this Retrograde?

Of course there can be positives to a Mercury Retrograde. If you have anything that needs careful attention to detail, now is the time to look at it. Making plans for the future will prove to be very fruitful when done during the Retrograde.

Writing out what you want for your life is vital. You may find yourself exploring new thoughts and make sure you write them down so you don’t forget all the things that are being sparked during this time of Mercury.

It is important at this time to keep your thoughts to yourself. Communication can often go awry and it’s best to stick to planning.

If you are thinking of ending a relationship make sure you have all the facts and have thought this through carefully before you take any action. Remember this is a time for planning not necessarily acting on it.

It is easy to fall into arguments at this time, so if you find yourself feeling frustrated and work off their frustration with physical activity.

The new moon in Taurus on May 6th is a perfect time for a new beginning so once again get back to your planning and make those thoughts count!.

If you like to work with the moon energy then remember the full moon occurs on May 21st. use this full moon energy to help push those plans you have been making.

Remember you do not have to hide under the bed until Mercury passes. Think things through carefully and do your planning for the year and you will have a wonderful transition into the next phase of this year.

If you find yourself going through some rough patches during Mercury Retrograde contact me and let me help you avoid the pitfalls and come out of this with new plans and renewed energy.  Contact me at (866)-563-3997 and check out my pricing for my services Here

Many Blessings,

You may have heard the expression, “Oh, no – Mercury is about to go retrograde again!” You may have wondered what they were talking about. Watch My Video To Learn More.

New Moon April 07, 2016 –A Time Of Action

purple moon

The new moon of April 7, 2016 11:24 UTC, is the closest new moon of the year. When you see the sun on April 7, think of the moon, too. It’ll be between us and the sun – but not exactly between – crossing the sky with the sun throughout the day.

It is good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies. It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with gusto and confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project; and discover our own personal courage.

A new moon symbolizes new beginnings when you look at old goals and set new ones. It is a good time to contemplate upon your life. The meaning of a new moon is the opportunity to start anew and refresh your dreams and desires. It is a time of magic!

  • Did you set New Year’s Resolutions that may need a little boost to them by now?
  • Have any of your goals gone from bright to dim?

Now is the time to support them with the new moon energy and its significance and symbolism.

It is important to pull our energy inward, to be the brightest lights we can, to show the greatest love we can. We hope the light we shine will catch others alight. Mystical

To make this a sacred time use Four Items to honor the elements. Have with you a small bottle of sand for the element of earth, a feather for the element of air, a red candle for the element of fire, and a cup of water for the element of water.

Moon Water3

On the evening of the New Moon fill a glass with pure clean water. Hold your filled glass and take a moment to stand before any sacred space that you have set up or is special to you and breathe into your center – that deep internal place that is the source of your intent and where all change is possible. Internalize the knowing that All Water is One Water, with the power to cleanse and purify, to wash away the dust of all that was. Know that water always seeks to flow and in so doing erodes away all the blocks and obstacles that hinder its progress.

Fill yourself with all the thoughts of change that help this world to be better in all ways. Bring up all the ways that you can help to foster and create that change, not only within but also in your daily life to the world around you. Allow those intentions and energy to flow into the water that you hold.

Add to its power by singing, drumming or raising energy in your own unique way. Allow your energy to infuse the remaining water within your glass while deeply knowing that all water is connected. Remember that all water is one water, and that the water of our bodies is the same as the sea and the rain and the river. The energy of water flows and returns to you like a great tide, the waves of true and undeniable change that begins with your own personal divine source.

Drink some of the water in your glass and allow the energy to infuse all parts of your inner self, knowing that you raising your vibration to a higher level. You can do this again on the next new moon.

Let this new moon be a fresh start in your life! It’s never too late to start over again.

New Moon Blessings,
Cherokee Billie

What is the Significance of Easter Eggs?

easter-eggs

Its common knowledge that Easter is a Christian celebration of Christ’s rising, but this holiday also has pagan origins. Where did the colored eggs, cute little bunnies, baby chicks, leg of lamb dinners, and lilies come from? They are all symbols of rebirth and the lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit.

Long hard winters often meant little food, and a fresh egg for Easter was quite a prize. So you can understand why this full moon was often referred to as the Egg Moon.  Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during the Lenten season prior to Easter. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of history, represented mystery, magic, medicine, food and omen. The egg represents the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter is over; the earth burst forth and is reborn just as the egg miraculously burst forth with life. The egg, therefore, is believed to have special powers. It was buried under the foundations of buildings to ward off evil; pregnant young Roman women carried an egg on their persons to foretell the sex of their unborn children; French brides stepped upon an egg before crossing the threshold of their new homes.

It is the universal symbol of Spring celebrations throughout the world and has been dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in the celebration of its special symbolism.

Traditionally, the eggs were marked with brilliant colors along with various types of bands drawn upon them which represented the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. Other symbols representing the triple Goddess, the Sun, and such shapes as triangles, squares, circles, and dots can usually be found. The drawing of special signs upon a symbolic object as with the eggs is a form of magic, as is done when creating a talisman or amulet.

Now you understand why eggs are colored at this time of year.

Whatever your beliefs are enjoy and celebrate them during this holy time.

Wishing you, and those you love, the blessings of a glorious Easter.!

My Body Does Not Resonate with Daylight Savings Time!

daylight-savings-na

I love the wisdom of the statement by this Human Being. From the time I was little I found that whenever the time changed in the year it would throw off my body. Of course I didn’t understand quite what it was doing when I was a child. As an adult I really started understanding how much it affected me body rhythm and it usually takes me about a month to achieve a state of balance once again.

Daylight saving time (DST) is a change in the standard time with the purpose of getting better use of the daylight by having the sun rise one hour later in the morning and set one hour later in the evening. Although it has only been used in the past hundred years.

I remember in the early 1970’s when there was an energy/fuel crisis and for a few years they stopped the time change. That’s when I realized fully how much the time change was affecting my body. I felt a lot better physically, mentally, and emotionally. I never understood why they implemented it once again.

It’s often been said because it helps farmers. Farmers are going to get up whenever the sun comes up no matter what the clock says.

Perhaps the intelligence behind these time changes understands that it throws off people’s natural body clock. I feel they want to keep people from their natural feelings.

I wonder how many other people go through what I feel when the time changes? I would appreciate if you would let me know what you think about it.

Thank you for reading my opinion on daylight savings time. By the way daylight savings time occurs this Sunday March 13, 2016.

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie
