On May 10th we have the full moon in Scorpio.

The flower moon in Scorpio invites us to embrace love, intelligence and creativity, it leads us to try and experience new things, as well as heal and release old emotions. Don’t not forget that Scorpio has a sting in its tail, so take each new step slowly and calmly.

It is the fifth full moon of the year, the name of the month comes from Maia, the roman goddess of fertility, chastity, wealth and health. May is the month of flowers and berries, the time to fill our home with flowers.

The moon of May is powerful for performing all kinds of magic to develop and strengthen your spiritual side as well as a time of transformation and understanding your personal power by knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of spirit guides and angels that are on your side to help you move through life.

Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio full moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best full moon’s for rituals and manifestation work and psychic readings.

With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this full moon.

When the moon is in the water signs like Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces it is a good time for magic involving the element water, for increasing our intuition and to bring about changes.

When the moon is in Scorpio, it is also good for revealing secrets using magic, spells and rituals, related to passion, love and intense emotions, It is the best night to make love potions and spells, so during this moon why not take full advantage of her power 🙂

You can use it to combat apathy or depression if you have been feeling a little off balance lately.

It is the moon of knowledge, the best moon to conjure spirits that reveal the past and the future of things. The full moon nourishes us with energy in every aspect of our life, but not everything is love or light remember that the moon also has its dark side that assumes an important role in balancing our emotions and different facets, the moon in Scorpio produces uncomfortable situations where jealousy, resentment, revenge, violence, desires and passions are intermingled.

Rituals & Magic

This lunar phase is a good time to carry out regressions, have psychic / future readings and strengthen clairvoyance.

On this moon you can also invoke water nymphs and inhabitants of the deep sea.

Use blue shades green candles for rituals, altars should face west if possible.

Crystals: Moonstone, Emerald, Amber, Jade and Pearls.

Moon flowers: Lilies & Roses

Colours: Yellow, Blue and all shades of Green.

Incense, Angelica, Cinnamon and Star anise

Maia, goddess of prosperity and health with her blessing you receive calm to make good decisions. Draw the magic circle, this time we can do this either in a room or in an open space. Burn some cinnamon sticks or incense, fill a small cauldron with a blend of essential oils that have floral scents, your choice, flower petals of different colours, sugar, cinnamon and a piece of peridot or agate, while mixing recite the following.

“We wake Nature up and in this ritual we invoke its spirits, make me tolerant, make me patient, make me wise and accompany me in every choice and every step with calm and wisdom.”

Remove the crystal from the mixture and bury it as an offering to the spirits. You can use the mixture try adding it to your bath.

Love Spell

During May full moon we can make this simple but effective love spell place in your Altar some flowers and roses, symbolizing the nature and the power of spring. In a circle made with rose petals place a rose quartz, burn a jasmine incense stick and light a strawberry or other scented candle, write in a paper or parchment your full name and that of your loved one, write your love one’s initials on a rose petal and your initials on another rose petal.

Place both petals and the parchment inside of an envelope with the crystal, close it and anoint it with a few drops of essential oil roses or jasmine oil at each end, leave it on the altar until midnight, then light a new red candle and burn it. The only thing left will be the rose quartz and ashes, which you will bury in a garden the following morning.

If you have been thinking about having a reading, to see where your life is heading this would be a good week to book one and start to make some positive changes.

Full Moon in Virgo

th

This Sunday, March 12th is the full moon in Virgo this may fill some of us with anxiety, try to stop worrying about the small things and seeing problems where there aren’t any, for others it will be time creativity.

Use the energy of the full moon of this month to carry out any investments and consolidate business, even if the position of Venus Retrograde tries to slow down the process.

March’s Full Moon is commonly known as the Worm Moon because it’s the time of the year when warmer temperatures thaw the ground and earth worms re appear bringing migrating birds back to feed on them.

The Moon in Virgo is a good time to organize ourselves, to organize the life, to clean the house and the workplace and organize all documents and papers.

During the full moon there is often more creativity this creativity is usually more linked to business and personal entrepreneurship, especially in the fields of beauty, gastronomy, health and personal care.

On the not so positive side some will take perfectionism to the extreme, as well as becoming highly picky, critical and intolerant these are very common tendencies that occur when the moon is in the sign of the virgin, so be aware and avoid confrontation with people that have arrogant attitudes and bad character.

March Correspondences:

Flowers: daffodils and jonquils

Stones: aquamarine and bloodstone

Use spells to purify and balance mind, body and soul. Nature always fills a void, so any negative energy that you release must be consciously replaced with positive vibrations.

This is the best time to work magic involving employment, intellectual matters, health, and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are also done during this period of time.

A Spell to improve your life

You will need pen & paper 4 white candles; incense
Cast a circle
Light a white candle at each quarter and light the incense.
Take the paper and draw a circle, inside the circle, write everything you want in your life.

Around this draw a second circle.
Outside this circle write all the negative things and people that you don’t want in your life.
Fold up the paper.
Open the circle but let the candles burn down until they are finished.
Put the piece of paper away in a draw or cupboard and forget about it.

Basic Concepts and Techniques of Grounding.

 

th

Feel the earth beneath your feet

Grounding is one of the first things that we are taught when beginning our practices of energy work and magic. Some people say that it doesn’t work, others abandon the practice of consciously grounding after a time, and some of us leave it behind because it is a basic technique, because we think that more complicated practices are more important. I do stress the importance of grounding, especially when out and around a lot of people, like shopping centres, bars even the gym.

Grounding is a technique that helps keep you in the present. Grounding skills can be helpful in managing over helming feelings or intense anxiety. It helps some people to regain their mental focus from an often intensely emotional state.

Just take a few minutes each day to do your grounding, rather than just visualizing, use all of your senses. During grounding, see the energetic roots growing out from your feet, pushing through the layers going down until it taps into the earth’s energy core. For some people using colour can also be quite helpful, deep earthy colours such as red and browns are always good.

Or just imagine a bright white light drawing upwards from the roots that totally surrounds you. Use the earth energy to protect and support you, imagine it as either a light a cloak or bubble, whatever is easier for you.

Be aware of how your body feels to be grounded. Think about how all your other senses feel with feeling of being grounded. What does everything smell like, taste like, sound like when you are grounded. How do you react to the various environments and people around you, when you are grounded, remember the triggers and feelings that come about when you’re not grounded. I know many of you have at least one time just walked out of a shopping centre or a really busy place because you found it too over whelming, that’s what it feels like to not be grounded.

Crystals can be very helpful in the grounding process. It is best to carry them in a trouser or skirt pocket. You must remember to cleanse and dedicate your chosen crystal for this purpose before using it. A small piece of tumbled stone will be sufficient to carry with you. Here are a few that are easy to obtain that could be used for this purpose.

Red jasper, Hematite, Gold tigers eye, Carnelian, Garnet, Pyrite, Copper, Amber, Unakite.

Here are some of the more common symptoms of being ungrounded.

  • Dizziness
  • Daydreaming
  • A feeling of being ‘Spaced Out’
  • Feeling sick
  • Heart palpitations
  • Eyes flickering
  • Weight gain
  • Clumsiness
  • Static shocks
  • Falling asleep when meditating
  • Noise and light sensitive
  • Forgetful
  • Having brilliant ideas that never happen
  • Arguing and unable to get your point across

Here are some things you can do that will help you.

  • Eating (hence sometimes the weight gain) – healthy & balanced.
  • Drinking water
  • Walking, especially in natural surroundings
  • Sports, yoga, running etc.
  • Gardening
  • Animals – walking the dog
  • Being purposeful
  • Visualization of roots & colour
  • Carrying or working with crystals
