Full Moon Winter Wildcrafting

Pine needle Oxymel

I am blessed to live in the Pacific Northwest, tucked between beautiful mountains, that in the winter are enveloped in mysterious fog and deep dense forests, full of mystery and lots of trees and plants that I can gather and turn into great medicine.
This pine oxymel is a simple yet potent medicine that I make from the giant pines that grow in this area.
It is a meditative practice just gathering the plant, leaving a handful of granola for the squirrels as a thank you. Then clipping the needles, and carving the bark from the stems. This, to me, is where the cumulation of magic and intention is created.
By the time I place the charmed plant material in the jar and soak it with natural apple cider vinegar and honey, everything is potent with goodness.
Then it is just a matter if letting time do the rest of the work. I decant and store my new addition to the medicine cabinet on the next new moon❤

Let's Talk..Moon Signs

The story of our emotions, sensitivity and subconscious

The moon represents our inner psyche qnd emotional nature. The Sun's placement in our chart tells a little about how we see ourselves, while the moon tells us the story of who we are. Of all the planets, the Moon is the most important for us to nourish. It is the emotional backdrop for all that we do, ruling our instincts and vulnerability. The Moon also tells us how we receive and support our loved ones. It can cause us to erupt into moodiness and overwhelming emotional intensity, but without her, we would be walking egos without complexity or depth, imagination or profound experience.
Shining most brilliantly at night, the Moon magically reflects the light of other people's Sun's, pulling at our heartstrings, eliciting unconscious emotions.
It is completely irrational, yet poetic and full of meaning.
If we do not feed our Moon, we simply do not feel content.
Our Moons element, tells part of the story of how we feel. If our moon falls into a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, ot Pisces) our emotions are more complex, with heightened potential for sulking, changeability and dreaminess. If your moon sign is an air sign ( Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius) the Moon indicates an increased tendency towards intellectual detachment, objectivity, and communicating your feelings socially. The Moon in earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) denotes steadiness, stability, pragmatism and sometimes repression. In fire, ( Aries, Leo or Sagittarius), the Moon is more direct, simple and truthful. But bursts of emotion could lead to compulsive decision making and activity.

The March Equinox and Astrological New Year

The March Equinox 2022 falls on the 20th-21st of March, depending on your time zone. It marks the moment of equal hours of day and night and also the Sun's move into the tropical zodiac sign of Aries. As Aries is considered the first sign of the zodiac, the March Equinox is also the start of the new astrological new year qnd represents the beginning of a new zodiac cycle.
The March Equinox is a powerful day for renewal, new beginnings, fresh energy and a shift in perspective.
The Equinox is a point where the veil between the higher realms was especially thin. It is a good time to do meditate on your ancestors, nature spirit's and spirit guides. They will help to guide you forward or signal to you the work that still needs to be done.
The energy of the Equinox is a magical time, where harmony falls on the planet, where we embody an equal balance of dark and light. Now is a time to honor these qualities that live within-our shadow, and our light.
Our earthly experience is so complex that it allows us to experience pain, trauma and grief, but also love, beauty and kindness.
It is moving through the dark and light, that we are able to grow and create deeper meaning. Perhaps it is transversing these states that ultimately allows us to lead a richer life💜
For the 2022 Equinox we have ZERO major planets in retrograde, that means get ready for some strong forward moving energy.
I feel now is a time to exhale. Make peace with the past two years energy, and find a way to find closure.
Be proud of yourself for dealing with any changes or upheaval in your life. Take some time now to focus on ways that can bring some peace, and acceptance into your heart.
