Full Cold Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

The Full Cold Moon (Native American) at 7* Cancer will culminate December 28, 2012 2:21am PST/5:21am EST (Farmers Almanac).

We survived the media hype of December 21, 2012 and this Full Cold Moon readily reminds us to support and cherish our family and friends. We are to focus on what is important to our very soul and heart, and what it means to live and love. Yes, back to everyday reality and no fear, getting back to the cycle of life. Have you been overly nostalgic over the holidays, what have you been thinking of and whom sit’s in your mind’s eye. What is it that you would like to re-create. You may not have your family to call upon, but there is a world full of people. Calling up memories might seem to be better off avoided, but there is some research to suggest if you aren’t over indulging in sentimentality it actually is healthy for your self esteem. To remember fondly the really happy moments and enjoying small pleasures such as the smell of your grandmothers or mothers cooking, outings with your parents, laughing with your siblings or friends is beneficial. It can make you feel less lonely too, remembering every minute may not be an interesting one but there are those memories that were meaningful. And somehow these puzzle pieces of a past, shape you.

Your history forms how you handle your life. It also tells how you take care of yourself. Do you let negative incidences weigh you down or did you learn to grow into who you’ve chosen to be. Your life is created by you. Even how you’ve reacted to the people, places and things you felt you had no control over. Many times we are given opportunities to change and develop, yet we miss the boat. Staying in loveless situations or struggling every day on some level. It’s up to us to take care of the mind and body. We’re given scenes to free ourselves over and over again. No doubt we have our reasons. Could you go over that justification, one more time…

Open your heart for love, open your mind for understanding, open your life to happiness again. Let it all In. Create it!

Journal Questions:

What are most nostalgic about?

  • Why

List the Happiest Moments:

 What do you need to make joy

  • Spiritually
  • Emotionally
  • Intellectually
  • Materially
  • Physically

Let’s concentrate on the pleasurable moments that shape us for now…learn to recreate a fulfilled and celebrated life. We all know what makes us unhappy, really work to instill within your psyche all the little nuances of enjoyment. When you practice joy, you’ll get good at it and then it will become a natural routine.

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”~Albert Einstein (German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955)


 

Full Beaver Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Beaver Moon (Native American) at 6* Gemini will culminate November 28, 2012 6:46am PST/9:46am EST (Farmers Almanac). Annular Eclipse.

     Last year the Beaver moon fell on 11.11.11 — it was an occasion of stepping into the benefits of the world around you. A gateway of stimulus, and fortunate epoch of beneficence, insight and magnetism, it’s as though the heavens know when we need an extra dose of optimism and therefore decides it’s time to illuminate the dark states we often find ourselves in. This 2012 Beaver Moon is reminding us to communicate with each other. And since it’s also an Annular Eclipse, we will need to change or let go of something that has been holding us back, bringing something exciting or illuminating to us. We are to focus on exchanging functional and logical concepts. We are to reprogram our minds to be consistent and thoughtful.

Life can be a wonderful whimsical ride but there is a certain correlation we must have to keep us steady and maintain a momentum. When we direct our thoughts, speech and actions it can lead toward ability and learning, giving us satisfaction and expertise. We’d all like to lie in a field and watch the clouds go by, and there is nothing wrong with relaxing. But our lives call for a certain amount of routine and a conventional tone for creating quality and character. For some reason we can lose our way working or playing too hard and not knowing the cues to step into our most constructive nature. We can want something for ourselves, say something differently than what we wanted and/or ending up doing what we don’t want to do, basically, misrepresenting our own natural instincts. Where have we gotten immovable and un-centered, or set our minds in stone and caught off guard with situations. Aren’t we supposed to know better and become wiser as we grow up. We see many people lose their way more often than not.

We do know one thing, we don’t want to be considered aimless. Recognize your skills to become a specialist and not a generalist, clearly speak with honesty and integrity. Acknowledge love as a gift and not as game of manipulation. Accept our bodies to best serve our security and enrichment. For every stage of our growth can be quite a feat. And the more we make excuses and justifications for ourselves, the more time we elude our highest outcome. If we fathom what we want, or what we are naturally inclined toward and really try to understand what our motivation or lack of it means, maybe we can learn to understand. This eclipse is giving you a chance to change, especially if you’ve been stuck in a boring routine. We mark an intention upon the people, places and things we want on the planet. Until we value our own expectations, ‘only then’ we can hope that others understand us. ‘Only then’ can we help others in the right way. We expect the universe to comprehend. How do we actually remedy this, is it our behavior and outlook, what can we do to adjust toward the right direction and not go down the wrong road. The mind should be… the words should be…the goals should be genuine.

 

Journal Questions:

I want you to make a list for Santa and ask for anything you wish for, ANYTHING. Ask for those fanciful wishes of unrealistic expectation.

Then make a realistic list

How do you feel about your items or wishes on your ‘unrealistic’ list

How do you feel about your items on your ‘realistic’ list

Compare the 2 lists – what is doable in the future

  • why

what is pure fantasy in your mind

  • why

What is realistic

  • why

What is unrealistic

  • why

What brings your heart joy

  • Spiritually
  • Emotionally
  • Intellectually
  • Materially
  • Physically

We can be clearing our thought process and begin to communicate openly. We all know people who say one thing yet don’t practice what they preach. We have a conscience. When seeking love, we begin by opening our hearts with trust. To have friends, we practice unconditionally loving others and make nice gestures and effort. To gain wisdom is to act accordingly. To be respected we need only to act respectable and be conscious of other’s feelings. Not everyone will react the way we want them to, but that doesn’t matter, as processing your higher self is about you, not about them. Whatever door closes, another opens… As the holidays are upon us, make your resolution to be kind to yourself. To speak warmly of yourself, move into grace for beautiful moments.

“One always dies too soon – or too late. And yet one’s whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are – your life, and nothing else.”~Jean-Paul Sartre

 
 


 

Full Hunters Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Hunters Moon (Native American) at 7* Taurus will culminate October 29, 2012 12:50pm PDT/3:50pm EDT (Farmers Almanac).

This Full Hunters Moon we are to focus on what we find beautiful in the world and how our relationships shape that view. We really are supposed to make concerted effort. To heal our hearts from the situations we find or have found ourselves. We open our minds to develop security, comfort and money, allowing others to support us while we support them. We try to understand what makes a wonderful human being. Sometimes we forget to share. And it’s in giving that we receive, even though you may give and not get back. You will always obtain, if not received from the original source than from another experience. No longer should we be lost in belief and allocation of certain protocol, just because your relatives or society taught you to fear or withhold. Cast away feelings of inadequacy. We live in a world of limitless possibility and need to be attentive for lovely surprises.

The essence of compassion shining through us is much more noteworthy in our humanness. A laugh or a smile can change an outlook in an instant. Communicating kindness can bring happiness and goodwill. Your spirit and voice are tools. There can be many people who show us their less desirable sides, be aware of your objectives. Jealousy and resentment are real. Intellectually we discern our course and focus, and until we understand despair, injury, fear and dying, only then do we become moderate with our judgments. It may take moments, weeks or years to settle our minds, spirits, and reopening our hearts to love and be loved. You are to stick up for yourself without attachment. You don’t have to be satisfied with being passive, you can assert and defend yourself. But as you affirm your desires and wishes you are allowed a plethora of decisions, for to seek the illumination of love in your deepest self is to restore virtue and true beauty of the heart. Never let others break your spirit, be enriched as you grow along your earthly journey.

Full Singing Moon


 

Full Singing Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Singing Moon at 7* Aries will culminate September 29, 2012 8:19pm PDT/11:19pm EDT (farmers almanac).

Last month we had August’s Full “Blue” Dog Days Moon, the second moon of the month. We were to focus on “a real time” of introspection, undo the unshakable, question unhappiness, sorrow and regrets. And now at our Full Singing Moon we are to begin to rebuild our relationships with others. No more hiding or “crying over spilled milk”. We’re to open our hearts to our friends and families, and accept the support and gifts they bring. Recognition and appreciation can go a long way to soothe another’s soul. Abide by the tasks at hand with some camaraderie and good manners. We know how we like to be treated and we open up to regard others the same way. We can get stuck in our everyday routine. We forge ahead without considering time and effort toward others we care for. We can miss entire sections of our own or others development, being too preoccupied with either being too responsible or immature. Many of us bungle perfectly good relationships and friendships by discounting they will always be in place to “pick up where they leave off”.

This is not to say we should be okay at wasting big chunks of our time in idle pursuits, there is balance in all actions and reactions. We all need rest as well as to be productive. If we make a conscious shift to make effort with those we care about and to act upstanding rather than misgiving. Not only shifting our interpretation in our minds but in our interactions, we find fulfillment. Becoming less fearful and fretful, if we act generous we can form easy alliances. We need to aspire toward contentment at work and in the home. Constructive association can improve our days. We all know what happens when we allow chaos to reign supreme. We feel inferior and make bad decisions. Mistakes can easily be made and take a measurable amount of time to undo. No matter how careful we try to be, we all seem to accumulate these blunders. All conflict, anger and worry will pass in time. And if we can learn to figure out ourselves instead of misunderstand, we become better for it.

Full Blue Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

The Full Dog Days “Blue” Moon at 8* Pisces will culminate August 31, 2012 6:58am PDT/9:58am EDT (farmers almanac). A Blue Moon is when there are two full moons in one calendar month.

At the beginning of the August’s Full Moon, we were to focus on our intentions and possibilities. Now at the end of the month, we are to give way to scrutinize “a real time” of introspection, undo the unshakable, questioning unhappiness, sorrow and regrets. In our society, we’ve come to think depression is natural, but it isn’t; we’re ‘not’ to feed on insecurities and fear. We are given reasoning skills, and when trouble begins we are to reposition and stop obstacles before they become serious. It’s easier said than done, of course. And you can cry, it’s just not good to keep crying. We can experience breakdowns in all matters, and need to allow ourselves to outthink misfortune and stay sensible. With this moon, we reflect on what bothers us, preparing to sway our minds and hearts. With Autumn coming we will soon begin the preparation of winter and manifesting survival. Rationally, our responsibilities on earth should be easily self-propelled and connected to trust. When we clear the air, we begin to precede.

What happens when making unsuitable choices or being wounded by unpleasantness, sometimes becoming bewildered, lost and afraid. We can find ourselves wallowing in dejection and misdirected rage. We are all aware that there are many terrible things that happen in the world. Some events we have control, and most of it, we do not. For every sadness we’ve personally experienced we look upon them and reason, why me, why did they have to happen. We are hurt and can be reeling by others thoughtlessness or uncertainty. And yet it is how we handle the anxiety, the challenge that is the test. And we pass or fail. We can rebury our pain, but it would be better to find the pathway to set our dilemma’s free. The question may be to ask our self, how am I reacting to the difficulties in my life. Am I self-destructive or finding my way out.

There are solutions to ‘everything’. We know the difference of thriving and failing. We know when love falls short, realizing we loved and it wasn’t reciprocated. We can go to a job and work very hard and not to be appreciated. We can try and better ourselves and our peers are putting us down. We must forge through, as the bounty of the earth is ours by birthright. We are deserving of love, money, happiness, freedom, security, wisdom, and great health. Did we consider when and where our troubles began, knowing our decisions shape our life. Sometimes learning to say the word ‘no’ is helpful. Not allowing our time and energy to be abused is valuable. And we can start to fix those areas of our health and well being. Are we taking care of our self. Unlock the darkest and deepest part of you. Only you have the key…

Journal Questions:

  • Write 5 dark secrets you harbor about yourself
  • Write 5 dark secrets you harbor about others
  • Who hurt your feelings and why
  • Why was this person important
  • What makes them important
  • How can you fix this situation in your mind
  • How did it mold your current attitude

  • Explain your disdain for the problem
  • What is the solution to the problem
  • Are you doing the solution
  • What is your justification if not
  • There are many fixes, think & act
  • No Fear

     

 

We can all be locked in delusion, not really knowing why the things that happen to us do. How we are saved or fated. We all have been hurt, we all want to scream, cry and wrestle with our lives. ‘Everyone’ feels this way. We know to reason and allow good into our daily reality. We see people get up and survive against all odds. We see them do it, leaving chaos and difficulties behind. Honor your past, it’s made you who you are… and it’s time to let go of what holds you back, Meditate deeply.

 

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. ~Carl Gustav Jung (Swiss psychiatrist, Psychologist and Founder of the Analytic Psychology, 1875-1961)

Full Dog Days Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

Full Dog Days Moon (Colonial American) at 10* Aquarius will culminate August 1, 2012 8:28P.M. Pacific/11:28P.M.. Eastern (Almanac).

            This Full Dog Days Moon is about focusing intention on possibilities. Who are you going to be when you grow up. What do you want and why do you want it. What does the future hold in your life.  Observing also this year’s moon is falling on the Celtic Sabbat Day of Lughnasadh – Day of the Harvest.  Lugh is considered “the Shining One” – God of Technology, fitting as Aquarius is connected with our course of action. We are getting a double whammy to “open up”, don’t become stuck. Take a chance, become who you long to be, evolve to be a part of your family, community and the world. Claim your place and knowing you belong here on earth. We deserve a wonderful life and to help others along to live a celebrated life too. The old paradigm is not necessarily what works all the time, there are things to leave in place and there is room to change. We must create a hale and hearty place for ourselves and our generations to come. Clean water, Food, Shelter, Security, creating a family – these factors will never go out of vogue. These goals give us all a target.

Direction, Course, Aim … If you are disoriented, you must start making solid decisions. There are great minds in active service, offering new development and sources of technology, medicines, engineering, manufacturing and production. New ways to clean water, progress nutrition, cultivate food…there is innovation, not necessarily know how. Engage your mind with your proactive movement, creating the future you dream. We sometimes think we are going in a good direction, but we may do a number of wrong steps. Such as giving away time and energy away for free, over-socializing, procrastinating, never knowing what is wanted, or having a speak of ideas but not putting them in to action. You know if you are over-compromising, being lazy, or undirected. You may be doing your share of a job, but find yourself alone and needing help. Are you letting life make decisions for you instead of you making decisions. Security isn’t so much about money, our society bases much on financial haggling but there are ways to trade and bring our lifestyles into balance. There is always a resolution and ways out of every circumstance. Sometimes we must go with tradition and other times it’s a good idea to come up with thinking outside the box. Elevate your actions, act in your best self interest and for the good of those you love. Reach up and touch your forehead, remind yourself you are a clear thinking human. Clear thinking…

The Future can unfold with our spirit intact, as life is not easy for any of us. When we stay true to a certain level-headedness, knowing there is cleansing after the storms of life. We can choose how we view benevolence. Not every move or reaction we make will be right, but we must try to be our very best. Giving our self the outlook to be inspired with innovators, knowledge and possibilities, to act in accordance and begin to journey in life’s enchantment and benefit. Knowing every stumbling block becomes an opportunity. Faith blossoms.  

 “Innovation is not the product of logical thought, although the result is tied to logical structure.” ~Albert Einstein (German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955)

Full Thunder Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
Full Thunder Moon (Native American) at 12* Capricorn will culminate July 3, 11:52A.M. Pacific/2:52 P.M.. Eastern (Almanac).
  This Full Thunder Moon is about creating clear communication to step into making more money and security, being proactive and productive. You are to be seen when you work, you are to be acknowledged and appreciated. In any job, there should be a feeling of fulfillment. We are to generate wonderful lives, beneficial, valuable and practical days for our lifestyles. Forming routines to enhance who we are and how we love. What happens when we find ourselves in an inadequate way of life, how do we get to the next stage…
Of course many are burned out at their current jobs and some have never found what career path is best. And it takes some time to establish who you are and what you do. If you’ve been disgruntled in your current job, you may not be able to rapidly be outspoken if you haven’t stuck up for yourself in the past. Speaking one’s mind can be a process of tact and diplomacy. We all know people who blurt their displeasure, there is always a right way and a wrong one. Once you start gently speaking your truth, start moving your daily life in to the areas that best serve you.
And there are new occupations and ideas in keeping with your talents every day. When we need guidance, we must seek that advice. Whether going through a process of learning or refocusing. There have been fading jobs, many professions are now obsolete as the country has changed. Keep holding strong and make wise decisions. When you start moving in the direction that best suits you, you can assess if your current job uses your talents and skills. Many people stay in dead end situations, when the universe has been trying to help construct better arrangements, the notion is not to be terrified, deep down you know how to use your time and strengths. Your ancestors did it and so can you. Not too long ago when the Industrial age came to be, I’m sure everyone scrambled to make better decisions. Change is an everyday fact.
Journal Questions:
Daily journal homework:

0* Gemini New Moon and Annular Solar Eclipse
By Tara Sutphen

0* Gemini New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating May 20, 2012. This is also an Annular Solar Eclipse, and this type of eclipse has not been seen in the USA for 18 years. Eclipses are about change or letting go, it can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life. This Gemini New Moon is about old communication coming to an end or finding balance on how you are expressing yourself. Releasing a mindset on what doesn’t work in a effective world. How do you move about in your environment to acquire confidence, and constructive acts or good manners. Where can a Revelation or two give meaningful thought to create purposeful achievement. How can we use the eclipse to change our personal world to the one we really want to be in. You’ve been speaking since infancy but are you getting your needs met in your life. You know if your life is in working order. You may feel you are at your base instinctual level seeking to survive. It isn’t about crying in the wilderness, it’s the show of strength in human involvement and evolvement. Finding the real voice, unlocking ourselves into how we should be and not how we think we should be…..

Here is the website to see the Solar Eclipse in your area.

Full Flower Moon

By Tara Sutphen

Full Flower Moon (Native American)at 16* Scorpio will culminate May 5, 8:36 P.M. Pacific/11:36 P.M. Eastern (Almanac).

The Full Flower Moon is about recognizing what blocks you in your health and psyche. Deep within we want to find the answers to unblock our aspirations and motives.  What vista can we climb to see our way. We can feel lost in the day to day grind. What is it we really are supposed to do on earth. What is, with having to rethink every move we formulate. Some people seem to effortlessly move into situations, events, groups and success easily. Why does it seem that way. When you question them on their journey, they usually say it’s been hard and they struggle with decisions too. Maybe they make better choices… And why does life throw us off balance as many give up or simply go in circles, performing the same patterns and making similar mistakes. What makes us realize when we’ve had enough and need change. Where is the magic key to flourishing.  By what chance have you given yourself to thrive. It’s a notion that something must be unlocked, unblocked, let go to get us to a next stage of learning or reaching.  Why can’t we see it. Where’s the flashing red or green light. Why isn’t it always easy.

We know we want to accomplish “something”, but most of the time it’s elusive. Is it supposed to be one objective and five intentions, a sprinkle of purpose and ten brownie points of meaning. Meaning has a strong pull in making sense of life. Intentions are positive, they can help with taking greater control. Objectives can change as it’s a continuous progress of research and decision making. Purpose is a big order and most often what that means is nonfigurative, as purpose is an intention with a lofty order. Many place it with the significance of their life’s goals, though purpose is not self sacrifice. You can be fulfilled and facilitate, making a difference in others lives without forfeiting your life. There are many levels of helping others and our selves. If working on a global level seems farfetched then we are slated to work toward family, friends and/or community. All self help, all matters of importance start in the home. Even when the life is disruptive or maddening with the initial family, this can point to not needing a certain amount of permission needed to accomplish future goals or “purpose”. Politics, Religions, Work Ethic, Career and/or Lifestyle preferences need a certain amount of approval of others or complete disapproval. Disapproval in youth sparks either insolence or audacity. There are days, years, and many lifetimes that we could dissect our thoughts and psyche, the most important things will be on the last day of this life.  That our lives meant something, who we loved, who we helped, who we laughed with, who we cried with. The soul knows what the soul wants. The mind knows what the mind wants. The emotions know what the emotions want. The body knows what the body wants. We can figure it out , we can be well and flourish…

The worst things we can tell ourselves is I don’t care, I can’t do it, and I’m so afraid. Inherently entrenched within is our survival skills and instincts and when we harbor self doubt and feelings of being lost we can get bewildered and disorientated. There is no need to panic, it takes five minutes to reframe and reorganize your thoughts and direction. Yes, five minutes and whether we live five minutes or 150 years, we are to truly live and love. We are to have a plentiful varied life. And when we keep our health in order and our minds stimulated in the positive search for effect and outcomes we are able to cope easier in the everyday realm.

“Rest enough for the individual man, too much and too soon, and we call it death. But for man, no rest and no ending. He must go on, conquest beyond conquest. First this little planet and all its winds and ways, and then all the laws of mind and matter that restrain him. Then the planets about him, and, at last, out across immensities to the stars. And when he has conquered all the deep space, and all the mysteries of time, still he will be beginning.”~ H. G. Wells quotes (English Novelist, Journalist, Sociologist and Historian. Best known for his science fiction books. 1866-1946)

Full Pink Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 Full Pink Moon (Native American) at 17* Libra will culminate April 06, 2012 12:20pm pdt / 3:20pm edt (almanac).

This Full Pink Moon is about stepping into our best companionable and comfortable self. What is it that we are trying to achieve when truly being an individual. We think of ourselves as a solid being. When we Like, we Like. When we Love, we Love. When we Learn, we Learn. And when we are unsure of others motives and tactics, we can be cautious and disappointed. When do we trust others, or is it to trust our self. If you risk and love, you can say you took a chance at life and the offerings. We should cast our bold selves running forth through the wind, thinking by chance we will meet people who are in line with our destiny. As we don’t seem to know how we come to be around the people we are related or acquainted with…those strangers who happen to come into our lives and private worlds.

We are all visitors and guests on earth. Initially, we are attracted or brought together through like-minded and synchronistic circumstances. Repeatedly, we admire others sensibilities and gracious ways, and wonder what conduct and character traits we possess and how we are “seen”. Where are we considered exceptional and special. Isn’t it within us to try and treat those chosen to be our friends, lovers, colleagues, family and admirers in the best possible way. Often we want to, but do we. Due to our conditioning and programming, we set forth our agenda on how we behave toward others and how they indulge us. We either step in to be accepted or misunderstand. And we will reason many times in our lives, why we feel the need to be liked or loved.

We’re to remember the divine light shines within all beings, even when we think we are alone and forsaken. We can be so unsure of ourselves. Needing a boost of awareness and others kindness. Are we conditional with our expectations or can we learn to be unconditional. When do we need to stick up for ourselves, or step away from negative situations. The road signs teach us to take a turn at the crossroad. We can learn the pertinent cues of purpose and pleasure. And the more we coordinate and know when to hang on and when to let go. Knowing we’re in a test. How we pass or fail. For to learn the ways of communication, meaning and love is a process and not everyone we care about or for will be with us throughout our journey. The target of our objectives and goals should be to gain merit, respect and appreciate whose thoughtfulness touch us.

We will expect people to come and go in our lives. There are frivolous days of people throughout our social schedules and events. There will be unusual people who try to block every move and create havoc. And there are those fascinating, that we can’t hold on to. There will be some people who lock us in some kind of dismal grip, and be hard to get rid of. And there are those that can’t get rid of us. And when it’s time to let go of people, we will need to grant our sweet friends and family a life they need to live. Many will never look back, no matter if you think they should. You will want joy for all, and some will not know how to find it. We all can’t live for another, but we can love. There will be the extraordinary ones, those so special in our hearts we will never be prepared to let them go. The soul’s dearest to us, this sentiment is the one we search for…

“To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness - these are the gifts which money cannot buy” ~Robert Louis Stevenson (Scottish Essayist, Poet and Author of fiction and travel books, 1850-1894)

Standing Before

The Moon Ritual Meditation & Sleep Programming

Although you would ideally do this meditation outTrack beneath the full moon, you can also experience it by imagining the moon and four directions as you are surrounded with magical energy ... a rainbow of light. In the Goddess' name, you open to the light. You can actually stand up and raise your palms to the sky or imagine this process of being energized and rejuvenated. Facing North you ask for solutions to your problems and experience many blessings. Facing East you seek solutions and prosperity while trusting yourself to make the right choices. Following many blessings, you turn to the South and ask for increased self-esteem and harmonious relationships with the people in your life. After the blessings, you turn to the West to face your destiny and ultimate potentials. Open your mind and release your courage. The ritual ends with the moon as your guiding light on the shadowed path. It illuminates your dreams as you walk steadfast and proceed on your earthly journey with an open heart. Track 2: A beautiful sleep programming version of the ritual. Listen as your cross over into sleep and explore the four directions into your dreams.

Full Snow Moon
By Tara Sutphen


Full Snow Moon (Algonquin) at 18* Leo will culminate February 07, 2012 1:56pm pst/ 4:56pm est (almanac).


This Full Snow Moon is about energy level and moving ideas into concrete thought and to realization and then to accomplishment. Last month you were to try and relax, leaving stress behind, this month asks you to look at what is best for you and move yourself into active involvement. Something needs to be fixed and there is a solution. You do have to quiet your mind to recognize answers. If it’s been your weight, your health, your love life, having friends, making more money…quietly bringing your mind into recognition is the first step, then you’ll have to make concerted effort. It doesn’t have to be fast and furious, slow and steady progress will do. 


We find ourselves in a swirl of activity that isn’t necessarily productive. What are you accomplishing, is it what you want to strive toward or do you end up frustrated. What are your real goal’s. It could be that you work really hard and you’d like to find some social relief and fun. It could be that you have the fun part of your life handled and you need to be serious about money and real work. You could be more proactive on health and your youthful vitality. You could build your confidence more by allowing yourself to shine in kindness or skill. 


You can’t expect others to tap into your mind to read your needs, but you might meditate for awhile and read your own mind. Losing ourselves in everyday living is common in our society, if we think too much we’re self absorbed. If we think too little, we find ourselves slaves to the system. Reach a happy medium. Life is for working and playing, loving and laughing through the good and bad times. Your expressions are a marked time of your lineage. Your talents are sharing yourself.

It is time to leave drama and trauma behind. Express yourself through kind consideration, you won't think you're getting anywhere at first but if you steadily go about what you need and want in your life - it will all fall into place. You are special, a unique soul. Be proactive.
 
“Spread love everywhere you go: First of all in your own house... let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness.” ~Mother Teresa of Calcutta (Albanian born Indian Missionary. Nobel Prize for Peace in 1979. 1910-1997)

Full Wolf Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

 Full Wolf Moon (English Medieval) at 18* Cancer will culminate Jan 08, 2012 11:32pm pst/Jan 09, 2:32pm est (almanac).

This Wolf Full Moon is about our home lives and how to generate more personal awareness. Youàd think it would be a time of getting back on track in the work force after the holiday time, but no, there have been plenty of full moons suggesting getting on track with career and security. January the time of winter usually establishes time indoors with those around us, and proposes a period of reconnection. These slower months also become a juncture of discernment and introspection, such as how to we manage time and relationships. Do we feel good about the people we spend time with, as often we find that familiarity does not mean closeness. We can sometimes ignore those in our vicinity, not showing enough appreciation or recognition. With the divorce rate high, the depression out of control we can only reflect that somewhere something is going wrong with how we are communicating or treating each other. Where are we not staying consciousà

I wouldnàt start communicating just yet, as we need to identify what is lacking in deeper introspection. What are the àfeelingsà deficiencies within you, are you too sensitive or not sensitive enough. Why are things not as they should be. What is causing any disparagement, and what can be done to change any of it. Your quirks can be pointed out by someone else, but that news comes from someone elseàs perspective of your needs. Your inner voice of reason can point you in a calmer, more sensible direction. A fix could be as simple as managing time a little differently. Who do you want to converse with, and who is important to build better tolerance. Who do you choose for true intimacy. Lack of seriousness leads to negligence, and too much seriousness leads to fear. And if youàre taking other peopleàs feelings for granted, yours are probably being stepped on too.

Taking time to bond with a spouse, lover, parents, children, relatives and friends formulates an understanding as an effort to attain honesty and integrity. Try not to be a ho-hum listener, your life experience can be fulfilling when making personal associations flourish, accrediting positive traits of people instead of the negative. Alternating time and boundaries is important, itàs not about measuring the quantity of time but the quality of experience. Whether you know it or not, you are a piece in the puzzle of your generation. You may not think you are doing much to influence others around you other than giving your thoughts and perspective. You could be just a good example of pulling your own weight in your job or home life. The observance of your actions is sometimes much louder than words. Your descendants and friendàs descendants will carry out the past through the filter of their ideals, dreams and data.

__________________________________

As a species, weàre an ongoing project, and what we do or donàt do is recorded by our soul blueprints and by the populace. Itàs important to interact with our intimates and relations. To perk up your outlook doesnàt take much effort when tuning in to others when they are speaking. Make it an exercise for yourself of trying to take notice on many levels instead of being half asleep within you. Forming significance in your words, thoughts and deeds, small gestures of goodwill, a hug, helping with a chore to taking time to communicate with those close to you goes a longer way then we ever think at the time. The truth of the matter is that encouraging others and recognizing their lifeforce allows our spirits to shine. There is an energy exchange of goodwill that doesnàt come from anything other than nurturing. When we take the time to champion those around us, weàre allowed to take steps for ourselves.

 

Quote:

àPeople are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.à~Jim Morrison (American Poet and Singer. Member of the American band The Doors and one of rock music's mythic figures. 1943-1971)
