12 22 760x570 - 2018 Full Moons - December Elder Moon

2018 Full Moons – December Elder Moon

December’s Elder Moon is the final full moon of 2018. Thanks for joining us this year as we celebrated the full moons! Sharing this info each month became its own marker of time. Sometimes it felt like, “Didn’t we just have a full moon?” and other times it was, “Wow, seems like that last full moon was forever ago.”

Tuning into one of nature’s recurring cycles can act as a nice rhythm; a pulse. Something that reminds you that yes, time is passing. Are you living your life how you want? Are you practicing being present, or has your mind been in a flurry for the past few weeks? Maybe the changing seasons keep you on pace, maybe it’s the monthly moons. If you need a daily reminder to stay present, try the sunrise 🙂

This month’s moon will appear full on the evening of December 21 – Winter Solstice. So it’s a double whammy! The last full moon, solstice, and the upcoming new year makes this week an energy-filled time for personal reflection and planning changes in your life.

What is Sacred Geometry Preview

What is Sacred Geometry?

Perhaps you’ve found yourself drawn to the mystical, celestial-looking, line drawings popping up all over the place lately. These vaguely tribal, often symmetric designs are usually rooted in sacred geometry, which has an esoteric history filled with layers of meaning and symbolism. What is this Sacred Geometry? And why did it inspire us to create a Sacred Geometry Clothing Line? Get ready to fall into the rabbit hole…


flower 760x570 - Flower of Life Meaning - Sacred Geometry

Flower of Life Meaning – Sacred Geometry

The Flower of Life is one of the basic sacred geometry shapes. The Flower of Life starts with the Seed of Life shape: 7 overlapping circles that build outward, forming a flower-like pattern that has been used since ancient times in many cultures around the world. Said to be the basic template for everything in existence; all geometric forms can be found within it, including sacred geometry shapes like the Platonic Solids, Metatron’s Cube, and the Merkaba. The Flower of Life symbolizes creation and reminds us of the unity of everything: we’re all built from the same blueprint. Read on to find out more about the meaning of the flower of life.


platonic 760x570 - Platonic Solids Meaning - Sacred Geometry

Platonic Solids Meaning – Sacred Geometry

The Platonic Solids are a series of 5 unique shapes; the only perfectly symmetrical 3-dimension forms possible. Each of the Platonic Solids is associated with one of the elements. These 5 symmetrical 3-dimensional shapes are named after philosopher Plato, who hypothesized that these 5 shapes are so elegant and essential that they must make up our entire universe.  The idea of reducing the material world to a few simple “building blocks” still resonates today. The Platonic Solids, along with other sacred geometry, help us explore the idea of how the part is related to the whole; and how we as individuals fit in to the bigger picture of the universe.


hexagram 760x570 - Hexagrams Meaning - Sacred Geometry

Hexagrams Meaning – Sacred Geometry

The cool thing about sacred geometry is the shapes’ ability to be repeated and remixed. The hexagram, or a 6-pointed star, is a common shape used in many religions and cultures around the world. It’s made from 2 opposite triangles which represent the masculine and feminine, earth and sky, interlocking in perfect harmony. Complex geometric forms are said to be even more powerful than simpler ones, as their numerous intersecting points resonate higher energies. The hexagram reminds us of our place in the world, halfway between earth and sky, and at the epicenter of our own personal power. Read on to find out more about the hexagram meaning.


merkaba 760x570 - Merkaba Symbol - Sacred Geometry

Merkaba Symbol – Sacred Geometry

Merkaba, also spelled Merkabah, translates literally to light, spirit, body. The Merkaba Symbol is a shape made of 2 intersecting tetrahedrons that spin in opposite directions, creating  a 3-dimensional energy field. You can activate this vehicle of light around your own body with practiced meditation and breathing techniques. The merkaba is said to provide protection and transport your consciousness to higher dimensions. The merkaba shape reminds us of the potential power we can wield when we unite our own energies in pursuit of connection and growth.


Metatron's Cube Preview

Metatron’s Cube Meaning – Sacred Geometry

Metatron’s Cube starts with the Fruit of Life shape, and connects all 13 circles with straight lines. Metatron’s Cube includes all 5 Platonic Solids hidden inside, symbolizing the underlying geometric patterns found throughout our universe. It’s named after Archangel Metatron, who watches over the flow of energy in creation and provides a connection to the divine. Metatron’s Cube is balanced and provides a visual focal point for meditation. It can replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Read on to find out more about Metatron’s Cube meaning.

You may need the guidance of a spirit animal! Understanding spirit animals and the symbolism of different animals can help you find an animal to guide and protect you – you can choose any animal that speaks to you. So how do you find your spirit animal?

Bees are nature’s reminder that it’s possible to be yourself while also doing good for the world. Bees work hard gathering pollen for themselves and their hives, and at the same time pollinating plants in their environment. Bees work in harmony with nature. They’re a shining example of sustainable living.

Owls can be found in nearly all parts of the world, living mostly nocturnally and blending in with their surroundings.

Turtle Symbolism – Turtle Spirit Animal

Get started – choose your spirit animal here – if you chose TURTLE, read on:
“Turtle” can refer to a sea turtle or a terrestrial turtle, more accurately known as a tortoise. Tortoises have taller shells and sturdy feet for walking, whereas sea turtles have leaner shells and flipper-like limbs to help them swim. Whichever variety calls to you, all turtles can represent positive qualities that we as humans strive to embody.


09 24 760x570 - 2018 Full Moons - September Vine Moon

2018 Full Moons – September Vine Moon

This year’s September full moon is the traditional Harvest Moon, being the closest full moon to the Autumn Equinox (September 22). But in our monthly moon series, we’ve borrowed the names from the Celtic Tree calendar, so we’re calling it by another name – the Vine Moon!

Because the moon is lower in the sky during the fall season, it can appear orange or red in color. The moon’s proximity to the horizon also makes it appear larger – a total optical illusion, but awesome nonetheless.

The August full moon goes by many names: Sturgeon Moon, Corn Moon, Wort Moon, Grain Moon, and Hazel Moon. The different names for full moons come from different cultures, histories, philosophies, and places. In our monthly moon series, we’ve borrowed the names from the Celtic Tree calendar.

2018 Full Moons – July

We’re almost half-way between Summer Solstice (June 21) and Autumn Equinox (September 22). This time of year traditionally marks the beginning of harvest, both literally and metaphorically.

July’s full moon is also a total lunar eclipse! It will be the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, coming in just shy of the theoretical limit. Unfortunately it won’t be visible in North America, but pretty much every other place in the world will get to see it!

This month’s full moon is also known as Thunder Moon, since thunderstorms are so frequent during July. Fun fact: some of the stormiest areas in the US can see thunderstorms every single day in July! Top of the list is southern Florida, a few places in New Mexico, and a small region in southeast Arizona. Enjoy Mother Nature’s light show, but stay safe!

Chakra Chart Meanings

You may have heard of chakras in yoga or come across them in Eastern religions or new-age practices like crystal healing. But what are chakras? We have put together some definitions and a chakra chart to help you out!

What is a chakra?

Chakras are areas of energy in the body that run from the base of your spine to the top of your head. There are seven basic chakras, each with a corresponding color and symbols. The Sanskrit word chakra (pronounced “CHOCK-rah”) means wheel, which refers to the spinning energy in each of the seven chakras.

5 Tips to Green Up Your Laundry

Here’s some news that’ll brighten your day: you have the power to reduce the environmental impact of ALL your clothes, even if they’re not eco-friendly! Choosing sustainably-made garments made of fibers like organic cotton or recycled polyester is a great start. But did you know that laundering is still the largest contributor to a piece of clothing’s overall greenhouse gas footprint? Consider the total life cycle of a garment: the raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, to your at-home wear and care and ultimate disposal. What you practice at home accounts for 40-80% of the garment’s total emissions. You can make a huge difference and green up your laundry practices!

Here are some eye-opening facts and tips to help you green up your laundry and make a difference in your at-home garment care.


recycled polyester preview 760x500 - Recycled Polyester Fabric

Recycled Polyester Fabric

Polyester is the most common fabric in fashion today. The problem is, typical polyester is made from non-renewable petroleum and it’s energy-intensive to produce. But recycled polyester is fabric harvested from plastic that has been recycled, like plastic water and beverage bottles. The recycled polyester fabric process takes plastic bottles, cleans them, makes pellets of the recycled plastic and then melts it all into new thread. That thread is then knitted into fabric. There are many benefits to using recycled polyester we want to tell you about…

2018 Full Moons – March

Inspiration for the two full moons in March hints at the quickly-approaching spring season. Can you believe winter will soon be over?! The Spring Equinox lands on March 20, mid way between the two full moons. The equinox is a time of balance and equilibrium, and spring is a time for fresh beginnings and growth. Take some time to meditate on the changing of the seasons. Notice the little things that fill your heart with gratitude. Keep an eye on the sky and don’t let time pass you by without participating fully in your life. Hello, March!

We had planned the shoot for the last week in 2017 but the subzero weather kept us inside for weeks. So on the first day that is popped above 10 degrees, we headed out for a walk in the park. I have to say, Siera was a trooper, considering how cold it was to be wearing tank tops and short sleeves!

chakras preview 760x500 - How to Activate Your Chakras

How to Activate Your Chakras

How to Activate Your ChakrasChakras are areas of energy in the body that run through your center from the base of your spine to the top of your head. The word “chakra” (prounounced “CHOCK-rah”) is Sanskrit, meaning “wheel”, which refers to the spinning energy in each one. Each chakra has its own symbolism and each affects different aspects of your being: physical, mental, and spiritual. The energy of a chakra can be low, high, or anywhere it between – it exists on a spectrum – but a chakra is never fully “closed.” The chakras work best when balanced. Keeping that in mind, you can work to activate your chakras one at a time, starting with where you feel needs attention. If you’re unsure where to start, try taking a chakra balancing quiz online or just starting at the foundation (Root chakra) and work your way up. (more…)

2018 Full Moons – January

January 1st brings the first full moon of the year. The full moon is said to be a time of heightened energy all around, and a good time to harness that energy to find clarity about what you want in your life. Some see the full moon as a time to harvest the fruits of your past labors; a time of peak manifestation and abundance. The fullness of the moon is fleeting, though, and marks the turning point between waxing and waning. From now until the New Moon, turn your attention inward instead of out.

In 2018, we’ll be sharing monthly moon inspiration.

It seems like they could be, so just for fun, we decided to put it to the test – a perfect excuse for a DIY Tie-Dye Party! Our crew gathered for a Happy Hour/Tie Dye Party right in Soul Flower’s parking lot. Most of us hadn’t tie-dyed anything before, but that didn’t stop us from experimenting and trying something new!

August 21st Solar Eclipse: Remember to look up!

On Monday, August 21, 2017 all of North America will experience a solar eclipse. A solar eclipse is when the moon lines up just right between the earth and the sun and blocks the sun, creating a temporary shadow on the surface of the earth. There are only 2 total solar eclipses every 3 years that happen somewhere around the globe. The last time the States saw a total eclipse was 38 years ago in 1979!
