Fall/Autumnal Equinox September 22 – 24, 2015

Autumn copia

The September Fall/Autumnal equinox occurs the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from north to south. This happens on September 22 – 24 and will mark the Autumnal Equinox which signals the beginning of Fall in the northern hemisphere (our friends in the southern hemisphere are celebrating the Spring Equinox). There will be an equal amount of light and darkness during this time, and afterwards the nights grow longer and we head towards winter.

Technically, an equinox is an astronomical point and, due to the fact that the earth wobbles on its axis slightly, the date may vary by a few days depending on the year. The autumnal equinox occurs when the sun crosses the equator on its apparent journey southward, and we experience a day and a night that are of equal duration.

In the rhythm of the year, this Harvest Home marks a time of rest after hard work. The crops are gathered in, and winter is still a month and a half away! This is also a time of celebration after the hard work of harvesting.  Although the nights are getting cooler, the days are still warm, and there is something magical in the sunlight, for it seems silvery and indirect.

This is the time to look back, not just on the past year, but also your life, and to plan for the future. Warm autumn days are followed by chill nights, as the Old Sun God returns to the embrace of the Goddess.

We must remember that all things must come to an end. So the Sun God journeys into the lands of winter and into the Goddess’ loving arms, but endings are a good time to celebrate our successes, thank our selves and those who helped us, and take part in the balance of life!

This is a time of a powerful 3 Day Galactic Portal time and the Birthing of The Shift: whereby there is a wonderful Opportunity to set the pattern/s of your Life to exactly how YOU want it to look, like or be. A beginning of a true quickening of “Realty” shifts based on your “output” of energies of your thoughts, words, intentions, and deeds. A great time for creating with an open -heart based Consciousness. Positive, loving, benevolent, life affirming, compassionate energies bring quick” like” experiences.

On the other hand, Negative, harmful energies No longer have the use or support of Universal Life Force and so will falter…So.. May All Blessings and Good be Yours! Create Wonderfully and Joyfully!

To welcome in this beautiful and magical season use some of the following to embrace all that is good.

Incense or scents to use: Pine, sage, sweetgrass or myrrh.

Seasonal Herbs: Rue, yarrow, rosemary, marigold, sage, walnut leaves and husks, mistletoe, saffron, oat leaves, apple.

Full Snow Moon February 03, 2015

FEBRUARY SNOW MOON Title

February’s full moon begins at 6:09 PM on the 3rd.  Snow piles even higher in February, giving this moon its most common name.

February 3rd full moon is also known as the Snow Moon, Ice Moon, Hunger Moon, and Cleansing Moon. Native American tribes of the north and the east called it the snow moon as it use to be the time that the greatest amount of snowfall came. The name Hunger moon refers to the difficulty to gather food this time of year. The Celts called it the Moon of Ice.

The snow moon represents the coming of spring. It’s the time when the seeds start stirring to life under the cold ground. The farmers start planning crops for their gardens. The animals will start to feel their young in their bellies as they are readying for their spring births. The long sleepy winter is finally ending and the earth is in its early awakening to the longer days in the warmth of the sun.

Correspondences for the full snow Moon

Crystals: Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jasper

Deitie: Aphrodite, Juno, Kwan Yin, Persephone and Mars.

Colors: blue purple and violet.

Herbs: hyssop, sage, myrrh and spikenard.

Flowers: Primrose

Scents: Wisteria, Heliotrope

Trees: Rowan, Laurel, Cedar

Animals: Otter, Unicorn

Birds: Eagle, Chickadee

Your work on the full moon should focus on new beginnings of your dreams and goals for this year. It’s a night of purification.  Work to realize where you past mistakes may have been, forgive and love yourself, and plan for your future. Consider making a dream/vision board for tonight.  Find a blank piece of paper or cardboard then spend some time cutting pictures out of magazines representing your dreams/visions for your future.  Ask the Creator for blessings for all on this planet tonight.

Full moon blessings,

Cleansing Your Spirit Native American Style


by Cherokee Billie.

In today’s modern world there never seems to be enough time. We rush from the time we get up until the time we go to bed. We battle traffic, work, deadlines, e-mail, family matters, and love life. Everything we have to get done in 24 hours! There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. People used to work a 40 hour week, now the work hours go into your private life and many people have to spend time on the computer or phone continuing work at home.

People often come to me for psychic/spiritual advice, and they are totally burnt out. They cannot understand why they cannot stop crying, yelling at people, being angry, and feel totally confused. The fact that they know something is wrong is the first step to turning their lives around.

In our high tech modern world, we need an antidote. It is time to turn back to the ancient teachings of Native Americans, which offers common sense, an uncomplicated approach to life, and a way to appreciate our existence.

Frequently people ask me about cleansing their spirit, and I give many different ways to do it. Here are two of my favorite methods.

Releasing The Past

One of the most effective and simplest ways to cleanse your spirit is by releasing the emotional baggage that you are carrying on you.

You can do this by writing down the situation or the name of a person on a piece of paper; also you must have a heat-proof container and matches. Place the paper in the container and light it on fire. As you watch the smoke go up, picture what you have written about going up into Spirit and releasing it from your life. Native Americans have always used smoke in sacred ceremonies because of the belief that smoke is going up to the Great Spirit.

You can do this as many times as it takes until you feel you have released the burdens you have been caring. You will find yourself feeling much lighter each time you do this.

What is Smudging?

Smudging is the name given to the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing. For thousands of years this ceremony has been practiced by Native Americans. This is a powerful cleansing technique.

It is a ritual to remove negative energies and have them go in smoke to the Great Spirit.

Smudging can be used to cleanse your spirit, mind, and body. It can also be used to cleanse a house, building, vehicle, work place, or another person.
Most Common Herbs Used For Smudging

Sage
For removing negativity and for healing, White Sage is preferred.

Sweetgrass
Sweetgrass is used for blessing after sage has been used. It is used to attract positive energy.

The Art of Smudging

The first thing to do is to make sure that the area is well ventilated and open up windows so that the negative energies have an easy means of exiting.

Get a shell or any flat heat-proof container. It is good to have a feather to move the smoke away from the person or object that is being cleansed.

Light the smudge stick and when you see a flame, put the flame out using the shell or container and the stick will continue to smolder.

Move the smoking stick around your body starting at the feet and use the figure eight motion as you move the stick up your body. Continue this until you get to the top of your head. At this point the energies have been released into spirit, and you can then proceed to cleanse another person, object, or space. You can do chanting or prayers as you use the smudge stick. Make it a sacred ceremony for yourself.
As the stick burns, put the ash in the shell.

When smudging an area like a room, house, or car, it is beneficial to acknowledge the main directions, which are: north, south, east, west, up, and down. Continue to use the figure eight motion and use the feather to move the smoke away and out through any windows.
It is recommended to smudge all closets in a house as negative energies often store in those areas.

When you have finished Smudging, extinguish the stick by dampening it with water, crushing it against the shell, or placing it in sand. Keep your smudge stick, feather, and shell in a special area, medicine bag, or on an altar.
Start doing this and watch the changes that occur in your life. You will be amazed at what starts changing!
