Full Strawberry/First Fruit Moon Ritual

This is the full moon of first fruit, known by the Almanac as Strawberry Moon. She’s at peak power about 3pm eastern today, with an eclipse just moments following. When her lunation is complete, Summer begins. Join me online to clean, clear, clarify, and consecrate, or Make Holy, tonight 5:15-6pm eastern. If you wish, have…

Lunar Imbolc to traditional Imbolc, 2020

Happiest mid-Winter, friends. It is lunar Imbolc and we are blanketed both by the sweet velvet dark right now of mama Luna’s balsamic, or dark phase and mama Nature’s hibernation season of Winter.  Balsamic or dark moon is the final stage of the moon’s 8 phases.  It is the metaphoric PMS of the month, when…
