Brigid, triple goddess, spinning maiden to crone. I welcome thee. My heart opens with boughs of white spring flowers. Enter my realm and let me honor you.
Your cleansing power restored my shame and healed my heart, in thanks I bow to you. I am a servant who wishes to further strip away this ego. I am ready to open into the inner realms. Plant my heart with your light so that I may learn from you.
I light this white candle now as a signal of rebirth and a celebration of your faithful love.
Full Moons are about letting go and in Scorpio this means Scorpio-type themes of fear, obsession, control & early trauma.
We allow the light of the Full Moon to reveal to us what has been hidden in the dark. During this Full Moon in Scorpio- the Sun is in Taurus…both of these signs are concerned with security- Scorpio with emotional security and Taurus physical security. This Full Moon gifts us an opportunity to experience some form of imbalance pertaining to our sense of security so we can reflect and remedy that imbalance- letting go of the doubt and fear that may be holding us back.
This Full Moon is especially powerful because it is a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses speed up our evolutionary pace and help us move forward in our growth journey. Sometimes, the process is uncomfortable and we don’t understand it fully while we are deep into it. With time, we develop more objectivity: looking back, everything gets clearer. Acknowledge, Accept and Release.
During Mercury’s aspects to Saturn (the planet of limitation) and Neptune (the planet of intuition & spirituality) we are called to spend time alone. Senses and intuition are highlighted and wisdom floats softly on the winds. This is a time to withdraw and find solace in meditation, spiritual endeavors and mindfulness. Mercury’s square to Saturn may foster difficult or negative thoughts- be mindful what plants you water. This can be a time of immense personal growth- keep your eyes turned inwardly and ask your guides for assistance in your next steps.
Mercury square Saturn– this transit favors hard mental work, better done on your own than in concert with others. This is due to potential issues with communication. Attention to detail is very important at this time. Take time making important decisions; seek trusted advice and try not to rely on the words of others. You may be prone to saying the wrong thing- so be equally mindful with what you say to others as well. Paying attention to your thought formations will be helpful- gloomy thoughts can have a negative affect on your mental wellbeing. Remember that the heaviness will pass- don’t allow yourself to fall into it.
Mercury sextile Neptune- Relaxation, creativity, communication and spiritual pursuits all shine during this transit. Senses and intuition become acute and healing power of words is highlighted. Dreams, meditations, guides and chance encounters can provide the information needed to move forward. This is a great time to do artwork or anything creative.
The mist of the mind is laced with songs and words and cyclones of feelings
The barren wasteland of the mind’s deserted battleground holds sadness and great desolation. Like the cave of wounds dark shadows line the periphery lamenting their lost (laces)
I visit the mists of my mind- dark and shadowy- to find a way to bring quiet to the raging places.
I visit the dark mist of my mind to hear the echoes, to embrace them- fear and all- so I may no longer be afraid- so I may find peace with them.
The lace of mist within and beneath my consciousness links me to the whole- for in venturing through it I see the light that shines betwixt the misty cracks of darkness- for in opening my heart-and stepping through it- I begin understanding that the misty land of noise is but a corridor to a larger room- bathed in gold and white.
I follow the thread back through the musty darkness of white noise to find this self patiently waiting, expectant and faithful.
I return with a deeper empathy for my present. I Am, I Am, I Am
The Vernal or Spring Equinox marks the beginning of Spring when the Earth returns to a place of perfect balance; day and night of equal length. This re-balancing of light and dark reminds us to bring some much needed balance into our own lives.
During this time, trees and plants begin to emerge from their winter slumber. Song birds search for nesting twigs and life seems to awaken once again through the process of death and rebirth. A new sun is rising and our hearts begin to ready for the return of the light, warmth and renewal.
This is a most auspicious time to plant new seeds. What do you wish to manifest during this new turn of the wheel? What do you wish to release? Find your inner balance, lean into your divine mind, awaken to your unfolding potential. The Earth is renewing, life is buzzing and the seeds you plant now will dream your world into existence.
Take time during this sacred day to imagine yourself as the Mage- picture your altar with each element present. See which element speaks to you- fire/wands, water/cups, air/swords, earth/pentacles. See which elements you leave behind. Allow your chosen element(s) to whisper to you… for this energy will be with you all year.
