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.

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.

This month’s Hazel Moon (named after the Celtic Tree of Wisdom) aligns perfectly with back-to-school season!

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!

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.

May your heart always be joyful. And may your song always be sung. May you stay forever  young.  ~Bob Dylan 

What exactly does it mean to be “forever young”? When I was in my 20s, I thought it meant staying wrinkle-free and doing cartwheels until I was 100. When I was in my 30s, it meant I wouldn’t gain those extra pounds every time I merely looked at a slice of cake, and also remembering exactly where I parked my car. When I was in my 40s,
