Summer 2018 has been lit that is for sure. Spirit is and has been on fire!
And we still got more to see I am like how in the heavens is this possible, but it is what it is. We have been through some planetary shifts and transitions. And it's not going to stop we have to keep moving forward with the lessons that we are learning. So what the seasons haven't been all peachy keen for some of us. But guess what these are the seasons where blessings are made. Because when you handle things like a champ you shall and will reap the rewards.
The solar eclipse that is upon us also known as a super new moon will take place on August 11th, at 5:59 a.m. EST, there will be a partial new moon solar eclipse at 18 degrees Leo. As the moon comes between our view of the sun, our external vision is turned inward, yes think about you for a change. Get entered on you and your goals. This solar eclipse, in particular, shines a light on the examination of things that need to end in our lives to create new space for other things to grow.
With this eclipse being in this degree of Leo, there is a Sagittarius influence that calls for a more philosophical communication to occur. The main players in this eclipse along with the Sun and the Moon are Mercury and Jupiter.
Mercury’s retrograde has challenged us to re-evaluate our communication in ways that examine our truth through an open heart. On the 11th, Mercury will be in conjunction with the sun and the moon, which places the zone of emotions and consciousness as expressed through communication. With Jupiter being the most extensive planetary body in our solar system, it represents the expansion and higher ordered development. Because Jupiter will be in a tense square, there are possibilities for excessive communication. So if you find yourself talking more then usual repo yourself and get to having a talk with God and your ancestors more, please and thank you.
Grounding our conversations with ourselves in holiness is required. During this eclipse will allow us to pinpoint the power of our communication. Actions like writing down specific goals also aid in maintaining control during these transits. Then writing down four action steps on the goals. Then doing contemplative prayer on the goals will help a lot. Since Mercury governs the mind, the vastness of Jupiter can create an unfocused, all-over-the-place mind absent of attention and direction. What philosophy and spiritual goals are behind? Which one of your daily actions in the spiritual realm needs more attention from you?
Jupiter square Mercury vibrates a worldliness: get out into the full world and allow it to teach you grand wisdom through ordered communication.
On the other side of this aspect, Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Leo causing a tight relationship whose energies do not mesh well together Like oil and water there is no mix boo. Again, with Mercury ruling communication, Neptune creates a fog that can cause confusing and drowsy when it comes to expressing effectively. Neptune governs the energy of the intangible, the ethereal, everything we cannot touch. Neptune brings an exciting flavor to this eclipse: while Jupiter can expand and broaden, Neptune can focus too strictly on things that are out of reach. That’s why it is even more important to access and maintain the power of your own communication during this solar eclipse. Being open and honest with the self and other's through right connections and conversations can present significant life lessons during this time. Look for where Taurus,, and Leo are in your charts to find out which aspects and areas will affect you the most. A great ritual to do right now is to make a commitment to work on the things that you have been pushing aside. Also, take more me time when was the last time you did something for you. With this Leo energy, we have the chance to make ourselves a priority and for others to recognize that we are important as well
Fixing our flaws is essential what can you do better at? and come on you ain't perfect so whatever flaw it may be facing it with a heart and mind of being better spirit keeps calling for us to be better so what bullshit flaw do you have that needs to be flushed flush it. And replace that old petty ass character trait with something new.
Significant changes are being made in personal development. This journey ain't about nobody, but you and the months ahead show that as well. Remember that everyone feels the eclipse differently, but everyone can stand personal improvement so light a candle and soak your ass in a bath and then get out that journal and write about what you are going to do to improve you. Yes, more journal writing it works trust me on this.
Then get up and apply it. Don't write you going to improve your health and your ass don't work out the next day remember spirit is watching and will hold us accountable for us not educating an advancing remember that improving ourselves matter. Attention human beings doing the inner and outer work of your soul on this earth school counts. And to get an A-plus in earth school, you need to work on yourself.
What they are doing over there ain't going to earn you your angel wings so why are you stunting them. Fix your life be a better you that is what this eclipses and retrogrades are about these energies in your life, not the next man it's about you boo!tell me how are you going to recommit to you? What are you going to differently? What are you recommitting to?
I believe in the moon, stars, and all things that the Divine created are here to serve us to be better versions of ourselves as human beings. And astrology is such a tool that can help us evolve to better versions of ourselves. Your more than a Virgo, Cancer, Leo or whatever your sun sign is. And when have strong energies such as eclipses they help us get in alignment with the heavens in our lives. Eclipses and other divine power are here to pull us in celestial alignment whether we want to go with the force of God that is our choice and many times we dont flow with divine because of our inner bullshit in which we have to deal with that is inside of us. Some of us love the cosmic zaps that get us moving, and guides us to transform our conscious lives. Some of us can't stand the mirror reflection of Jesus, Mary, Joesph or no other deity or angel whatever you believe in is going to save you if you dont get up to try and protect and keep yourself in divine order. This energy says we can't pray to Jesus to come to heal your diabetics but you still eating cake and not eating balanced meals and working out. The power of this eclipse is mirror reflection that reveals you to yourself in a way that no other cosmic happening may have done before initiating many of us into the order of fixing yourself from the inside out. The polarities of the blood moon lunar eclipses on July 27 at 4:20 est, will be felt in how we display power, give away power, and apply force in multiple areas of life. With the moon being in the energy of Aquarius at 4 degrees, this lunar eclipse is in the zone of karmic ancestral ties. Some say that Karma doesn't exist but in my understanding it surely does and you shall reap what you sow and what you dont sow as well. And we also need to look at karma differently as well. Looking at it from my understanding and teachings of African religions we don’t believe in that western idea of its just good or it is totally bad in fact, the African spiritual system operates from a different paradigm, and I look at astrology from the diaspora mind as much as I can. My elders taught me that everything in this realm of the earth is good and evil.
Yes, we can look at some tribe that is in war and say oh wow that is bad for that tribe. And some see the war as good for the people who win because they get to be winners, and gain more favor as well have the additional resources that they need for survival. Then you have the loser poor loser so its sorry for the losers, who ends up defeated and had less than before and sometimes end up with nothing.
This eclipse and full moon recalled to me the African spiritual teachings of good and evil are on different sides but they are on different sides of the same coin, and one cannot exist without the other. The moon holds cyclic patterns of our ancestral lineage, and the energy of Aquarius is broad, mystic, and collective. So what negative trends do you need to break within your family is an excellent meditative question to ask yourself under this astrology powerhouse. There is a truth beyond ourselves that the universe has for us: So what facts do you need to tell yourself that guess what Jesus isn't is coming to save your diabetes that you have to change your eating habits and take control of what you put in your mouth. I am just using diabetics as an example but ask yourself what is your truth that you need to tell yourself and tell yourself about your ancestral line is. You dont have to have diabetics, high blood pressure or whatever it is that keeps plaguing your ancestral line this eclipse and moon says the dark illumination of Aquarius embodies this truth and the focus on the Leo sun enables us and speaks to our souls to act on these changes the eclipse brings.
Mars is also a significant player in the energetic fabric of this astrological phenomenon. It has been very active since it has stationed retrograde this past June 26th and even before then during its shadow phase. Mars in retrograde has caused us to reevaluate our strategic planning, our sex drives, and our forward passions in a way that reclaims our strength and questions our
comfort zones. During this lunar eclipse, Mars will be conjunct the moon in Aquarius, while opposing the Sun. This standoff between the Sun and Mars brings pent-up aggression, that many have when spirit tells us to change our weak and not serving our highest good ways we get informed by the lunar emotions of change. An energetic wildness reveals itself through this opposition, and, to add to the fire, Mars squares Uranus, the planet of erratic surprises and innovative shifts. So, we have the aggression of mars, the sensations of the moon, the rapid changes of Uranus, and the illumination of the Sun all controlling this life-altering eclipse. This formation tells us that our flames (our drives, passions, and ambition) must be felt, control, and directed in a way that shifts our lives to the next level. It can be a severe shock to the collective consciousness of those that dont want to change old bad nasty habits. Our emotions are not good indicators of how things needs are. As Oscar Wilde says -I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.” Be in control over your emotions know and distribute your power purposefully in your life and kick those bad habits under this shift. Allow the Universe to flood you with new ideas, energies, and situations allow blessings to pop up in your life, we must learn to breathe, let go and allow some universal surprises sometimes stop trying to navigate everything and allow God some room to work within your life. We have no excuses because the Leo sun gives out bright light to our consciousness, even affecting our subconsciousness. Leo brings the revelation on how to direct the lunar emotions and let the Universe you surprise you with the sunshine of blessings if you change the bad habits that dont serve you.
Next, the Sun quincunx Saturn, being approximately 150 degrees away from each other. In the position, these cosmic bodies do not know how to blend their energies effectively. This eclipse and full moon govern responsibility and morals. So, doing the right thing for yourself and check in with your moral system and just act right got damn it. You know whats right and wrong. And if you were doing wrong, you are going get that wrong done back to you. Also, Mars in Aquarius is calling us to recalibrate our mysticism, dont slack just because you live right people can be ruthless and come for you for no reason at all. Trust me, people, I know all too well about what gossip and slander can do your aura field so dont allow people in your fields protect your energy and its a great time till August 10th 2018 to level up and do tons of protection magic. Mars is collaborating with the moon to push our inner being into more fortification and defense in the midst of drastic, constant change. So defense magick is also favorable at this time as well. There are lots of greats lessons that this energy brings I love that Mars lessons for some of us will linger until October 8th that is when Mars will be removed from the retrograde’s shadow. And furthermore, this lunar eclipse’s lesson of emotional fortitude kicking habits, getting up and doing whats right for your life and heal those ancestor patterns will last up to a year. Allow Leo’s rays, the star, and this eclipse to reveal your lower ego to yourself, and not worry about the lives and goals of others. Your highest destiny is achieved through an open heart in admitting where you can be better for you.
One of the best rituals that you can do is take a great spiritual bath and sit under the moon and recite something like this: or write your declaration or mantra.
I declare and decree I cleanse away harmful habits of the past. I release my old negative patterns, and I let go of the negative ancestral ties of yesterday. Dear Universe, guide me through healing my harmful habits. Divine spirit gives me the strength to let go of these negative patterns in my life.”I declare I rise to be a better version of me. Thank you divine spirit for keeping safe and robust and full of integrity. I tell my soul the truth, and I declare I am diligent through making the changes I need to be a better version of me. I am energetic and full of enthusiasm as I rise to a better version of me. Divine spirit keeps me calm and peaceful during my elevation, and I am forever grateful for whom I am becoming. And it is so, and so it is
So, in conclusion, be open to change in your life be open to kicking those bad habits and dont be the person that lives in regret for not doing the changes Divine spirit has asked you to make. Dont psyche yourself out of the changes. Remeber that we all talk to ourselves. And how you speak to yourself during this time is a significant shift for us to leave bad habits and to enter into success. Change and new ways of existing and it all starts with what we say to ourselves, followed by divine action, In other words, dont ponder too much about what, should, could have happened in life. Get up and move into change and shift now and convince yourself that the actions of change are worth it.
The strawberry moon is and a substantial time to heal the divine masculine energy within ourselves, and if you have any issues with The divine masculine Energy or any male archetype in your family and ancestral energy, then you will feel the power come forth and take place in your life.
This full moon in Capricorn is a time to leave offerings specifically for the divine masculine energy in your family lineage pour libations and offering a healing prayer to the Cronus energy of your family and for the divine male power of the world as well. We are dealing with (Grandfather Time) and when dealing with grandfather time the lesson is to take your time as well don't rush through your rites and rituals or prayer time take time in all that you do no rushing.
This energy is very goal orientated and is asking that you take time to establish yourself. A business or empire a life is never built in a days time, or a year it takes found time to get things done. And if you are doing the work, the universe will work on positioning you, but you have to do the jobs it takes to get there the slightly tedious stuff. Look within yourself and ask am I placing myself in the best way possible.
And when you take a look at your goals and what you're trying to obtain for your life, business, spiritual practice and so forth its best that you take a physical position in the world. How do I make a natural place in the world by doing get yourself out their for example if your goal is doing more classes put yourself out there and book a space and promote yourself! You may not have a huge following or people, but they need to see you take those action steps because no one is going to put you out there but you. Applying practical effort in all areas of life physically, spiritually and businesses wise.
We are dealing opposites of the Cancer, the lunar grandmother who says come here have some pie and tell me all about it and I m here for the hug you need. But don't get it twisted that grandmother cancer energy has some words of wisdom and making you think to yourself as well about the stuff you need to do to accomplish your goals as well. The cancer energy is here to helps us take care of our emotional needs with that intuitive bright moon goddess energy of having great mystical insight into the cosmic cycles of timing but not here to baby you either.
Although this energy is about polar opposite, we need this energy we need the strength to say that I can and I will be caring and I need to listen to that old dismissive grandfather energy of Capricorn because he wants you to get it done as well. The Capricorn energy says that you want things to same the same but they can't and feelings fade and things change, and you have to change as well.
Both the divine masculine and divine feminine are offering us a great picture of wisdom and truth. They are also shining favor down for those of us that are producing like we know we should are we writing the blog post, contacting customers making courses that matter. Are you reorganizing the house, cleaning the garage taking care of things that have been needing you to take care of them forever and day? This energy is in total favor of productivity things that you have been saying that you are going to get to so I advise you to get to them.
The two energies of Cancer and Capricorn are working together to help us achieve our ambitions and goals, Capricorn can cause us to be to tasked orientated and only have goals on the mind which lead us to become cold, as well distant when focus on one aspect of life alone. The cancer energy is here to say yes work on your goal, but don't go overboard to the point that you are emotionally unavailable to those that are around you, And don't work so hard on your goals that you lose sight of your emotional an intuitive balance in life as well. The universe is saying don't get too out of balance whatever balance is for you because balance is different for everyone.
This astrological alignment under this full moon is a beautiful time to ground and take time to journal and visualize our goals so that we can actualize our ideas in the physical realm. Cronos energy is saying take time to establish timelines to focus your attention on achieving results with small actions daily. Also by implementing a daily routine that you can stick to for the next 6 months that ensure you that work will get done and in a timely fashion as well.

"Praise your Ori" (your higher self).
Affirm at least four times in the mirror:
I love and accept my self, and I am full of excellent decision-making abilities
Step Two: Evaluate the goals that you have left to accomplish for the year.
Affirm at least four times in the mirror: I will not look to past judgment on the goals that I have yet to accomplish. I am proud of what I to have achieved this year so far.
Step Three: Throw out the goals that no longer fit your lifestyle and vision
Affirm at least four times in the mirror: It is okay to release old ideas that I had for my life, business, etc...
Step Four: Look over the goals that you didn't get rid of and look at what's left on your list with a golden heart and mind.
Affirm this by lighting a white candle a tea light will do and say a quick prayer:
Great spirit I ask you to show me how to revive these goals to support my destiny here on earth I trust your guidance. Dear ancestors of the highest and greatest good that are with me guide me as I refresh my goals help to have clear thoughts and actions on how to achieve my destiny. It is so, and so it shall be
Step Five: Break down goals into reasonable steps
Affirm: I break my goals up into reasonable chunks; I will not overwhelm myself by going after all my goals at once.
( please repeat this affirmation often as we finish out the year)
Step Six: Take time to reconnect with your why you choose these goals.
Affirm by just sitting and breathing while looking at the goals, or you can take a walk under the moon energy and see why you reconnected to these goals. Or sit at your altar or your sacred space and share your goals with your ancestors and spirit guides that work with you. Or even sit under your favorite tree and read your new goal list to nature reconnect your goals with the universe and the best ways to do this is in essence of the world so the great nature spirits can connect with your goals as well.

Oh, you want to find out what kind of bitch I mean then follow me on Instagram and see my post over there with more information that is exclusive to my Insta- family Bitch!
Tonight we will have a New Moon in western astrology, and this new moon will take place in the beautiful sign of Aries. We will also have mercury starting to go direct. However, mercury going direct doesn't mean we are in the clear we still have the shadow phases to deal with that is lingering. Especially for those that are Aries, Gemini or Virgo Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, as well take a look at your natal charts and see where Aries, Gemini, Virgo are it will play a role in your life in some aspect. Since this Mercury retrograde had a clear focus from the underworld to show and bring people to the forefront of knowing when and when not to speak was one of the biggest lessons of this retrograde season. There are still many lessons in the shadow phases of learning about stop allowing our egos to let us speak out at the wrong times. The post shadow phases that we will experience over the next couple weeks will also address the ego about stopping and thinking before we say the wrong thing. The shadow phases will also send lessons many of us on when you should comment there are many lessons about the wrong time and saying things in the wrong way and that crazy place. Like you at the baby shower and telling the mother to be that her husband is cheating yes that is the wrong time and place to say that. So even though we are going direct with Mercury still be very mindful of impulsive words and actions because these are all lessons on the poor judgment that the universe is trying to teach us till May 4th, 2018. The good thing about the universal experiences we are all learning at this time we have the New Moon in Aries here saying what did you learn in this retrograde season. Because this Mercury retrograde season was about karma, you were and are going to be punished for bad decisions of speaking out and acting out at the wrong time and place. But the new moon says let's correct our actions, and this is a good time to recommit to doing better. This new moon is about resetting your personal goals but personal goals that genuinely express positive energy for lasting change in your life. Like if you are only trying to lose weight for a party or vacation why not change your mindset and have a long-term goal of being a healthy person period not just for that vacation coming up. Because if you dont set these long-term personal goals, you will be visited with the ramifications of not committing to the lasting change in your life in the next retrograde season. This new moon is in the sign of the Ram for people that follow . In western astrology the ram says take action, on your goals, health, finances, this is the time to try that new workout, the new meal plan with an open heart and mind. Or whatever it is that you have been thinking about trying, try it dont resist the universe wanting to change your habits, ways, speech, thought process. Because we all have to evolve and that requires change and commitment in all areas of development in our lives, not just one area. This new moon is a time not to shun God and the ancestors innovatively ways of evolvement, or change this is a time to be confident that you will get those new eating habits down if you commit this time. Dear souls remember that whatever it is that you want to change or correct in your life be convinced that you can change it this new moon is about tackling your goals with gusto, please be mindful that being a little assertive on creating the new you, but confident doesn't mean that you're rude. Remember that we are still in the shadow phases of mercury so watch your tones, speech not only to others but yourself as well. This new moon is a time to take charge of the unhealthy parts our businesses, and lives, and be willing to be corrected by God and your ancestors and to start a brand new venture. This new moon is a time to build on your personal goals what is your intention is to run a 10k ? or is it to get off high blood pressure medicine for good? Or Save more money towards retirement? Whatever the goals are its time to discover with the new moon the personal courage that you have to complete your objectives. Tonight is a healthy time for sitting and thinking things through so get your moon manifestation journals and be open and honest as you write your goals and place yourself under evaluation. And see what did you learn during this retrograde season and where can you do better in not just to your relationship with others but where can we do better to relating to ourselves.
Take time to make some basil tea and write and enjoy the potent new moon Aries energy while your writing your goals burning some copal, basil, nettle will be beneficial as you write and sip your tea as well all the herbs listed are herbs that respond well to Aries energy. Or you can burn any incense that provides your higher consciousness with a relaxed and calm feeling to write. Tonight's new moon is where we can make some significant changes but to make substantial changes in our lives we must address the parts of us that need changing. It’s time to be realistic about our inner selves and the plans we have for the future. Because being real with yourself and reviewing and redoing your goals will help catapult you to create new beginnings in your life. And remember its okay to start small with goals and its okay to dream big as well and dont judge your goals to harshly no matter how little or big the goal is to write it out and share it with your spiritual court and mother moon tonight as they are there for your support.
As always be careful about what you ask for because they are going to give you lessons to go with every goal that you're working towards manifesting because Aries energy says that you are going to learn baby today. And the best way to learn is through those good ol' fashion life experiences. And get off your ass and take action yep workout today, start searching for a better way to save money today because the work you put in today will lead you to lots of good treats later. The energy of this new moon says that we treat those that do the work. And we need to learn to treat ourselves with dedication and hard work sometimes. Because that hard work of putting the liquor down, not eating the extra food, or saving more money then spending or whatever your goal is will lead you to better golden nuggets. Also, a good journal prompt tonight after you light your white candle and mediate is ask yourself what some ways you can learn to rely on your inner soul for happiness are. And to relate your happiness to outside sources such as liquor, food, etc. the. Vices that we all have even if it isn't liquor or food what is it that you are relying on earthly that is causing more damage to you then bringing you true happiness. Dont allow the shadow phases of mercury retrograde make you not think clearly and be rebellious against the new habits that you know you need in your life. It’s a time to break bad cycles and the routine of bad habits and under this new moon get involved in you changing you and promise your soul that you are committed to doing better for you and you are committed to the new seeds of newness that you are planting under this new moon.
If you do hoodoo or rootwork tonight is a good night for doing crown of success, clearings and cleansing and future money workings.
Good crystals to use for tonight's new moon meditations and journal writing is Carnelian, Aquamarine, Blood stone, Apache tears.
Live In Joy
My Joyful Intuitive astrological outlook on the beautiful super moon that is taking place on Jan. 31, 2018. The wonderous full moon will take place in the sign of Leo but heavily influenced by the constellation of cancer. During this Leo full moon, Leo energy is very fiery and ruled by the Sun. And when the Moon is in the zodiac of Leo we are being guided to look deeply into our hearts and unearth our godly purpose on the earth to live your passions. And with the loving energy of the cancer constellation, playing a significant governess role, it says rest in my bosom and tell mama what inspires you and brings you the most significant emotional fulfillment? If you have been trying to connect all the dots of your life that has brought you to this date. Those are common feelings for some leading up to this beautiful eclipse. The energy leading up to the lunar eclipse is an excellent time to reflect on the natural occurrences of life. And on where your life could be. It’s a wondrous time to think of all the extraordinary promise the eclipse brings, Dont you allow the past to dictate your futrue is something that I kept hearing from Spirit as I wrote and channeled and asked what does this energy bring for us as a collective. Besides being a great night to step outside and open your arms wide and bask in the glory of the glowing moon.
It is a night for some spiritual introspection; this energy is highly feminine even though it falls in the sign of Leo because the constellation of cancer makes the moon feel as it is home here. Think about how you feel when your home with your mama and grandma or that big loving mama in your family that has the best hugs. Your safe, warm comfortable and of course well fed if come anywhere near my moms creole -Geechee roots household. But remember the Leo energy will make big mama call you on the bull shit you were selling yourself from keeping yourself from your best life. This astrological power is saying allow the love and care to flow to you. A great time to heal bonds with mothers, mother figures as well as strengthen relationships. See the cancer constellation brings that intuitive guidance, with a dash of sensitivity that we all need in our lives sometimes. Just think about when you're sitting down with prominent women figures in your family, mama, grandma or that sage auntie does she want you to talk more than likely not she wants to sit and listen.
And that is what I feel in my soul that this lunar eclipse is asking of us. To meditate and sit and listen to mother moons wisdom she will speak to our hearts she will guide us intuitively on the things that we need to let go of and what we need to elevate in our lives, but we must sit and be still and allow the energy to flow to our souls. With Jan. 31 being a night full of compounded lunar, pure energetic goodness it is time to get your higher self in alignment to receive this moons lightning bolt of energy medicine to re-calibrate your souls purpose.
Guess what whether you want it or not it's going to put a jolt of energy healing into everyone’s path. This eclipse is about opening new doors to your said purpose on this earth and closing old ones and not looking back at them. Let's settle that ol' beef we have with people and ourselves that has been keeping our souls bonded and final close those damn chapters for good and move purposefully into our new year new you jargon you told yourself a few weeks ago.
But you haven't been keeping up with the resolutions or the bullshit promises we made ourselves Guess what the astronomical and planetary alignments are about to make you live up to all the stuff you said you were leaving behind for real. I know some have said that this eclipse is a marker for ending some chapters in your life. But I see it as the beginning of whole another book in your life. That old book although an essential part of your being but just think of your new book as the New York best time seller that your soul has been waiting for. This powerful moon energy is your if you embrace wholeheartedly, it will guide you to living a life full of intention, taking more intuitively guided chances in life. And for to always recognize that in this life that you are not alone your soul is surrounded by divine feminine energy that supports you in the physical realm and the spiritual realm they are working that female power to get your whole life together if you listen carefully.
Some have asked what rituals they can do during this time I say one of the best rituals that you can do during this time is to allow the purge to take place. This eclipse is a time for healing and cleansing. So I would take a cleansing simple salt bath with all this powerful energy. You can work wonders with simple things such as a White candle cleanse
Take a white candle and visualize all your negativity, stress, anxieties old habits leaving your being. Move the candle unlit all around your head holding your intentions high on cleansing and healing then slowly moving all around your body making sure you get the front and back of your neck. Sweep the candle over your chest area pay close attention to your heart chakra if you have been harboring some unwanted or undecided energy there. Don't forget to go all down to the toes and in between the legs as well. When you finish sweeping your body and light the candle remember that you are surrounding yourself entirely with healing energy and pray from your heart that you are filled with a new spirit, affirm your fresh starts, and cleansed mind and soul.
For those of us, that love a good spiritual bath then dip your physical and spiritual bodies into a good ol' fashion salt bath.

Another Great Ritual to is to create a crystal grid of peace using your crystals and to sit next to your crystal and to write in journal pouring out of your heart all the things in life that are not serving you. Some great journal prompts under this moon energy would be Asking your higher consciousness where can you allow more powerful intuitive illumination in your life. When journal writing, please think about the effects of this moon over your life in the future tense. This energy can last up to six months or more for some. So write future blessings what do you want from heaven to move closer to earth for you.
The Full Moon is always high energy for adjusting your Ori and releasing things as we know. So look at the areas that Leo energy address in this moon as well as you journal
Where can I be better as a leader? Where can I exude more confidence? What ways can I serve future generations? How can I let my inner child shine bright?

Friendly reminder that Jupiter sextile's Pluto is starting today on January 15-17, 2018 this a part of a universal process that will help us redefine ourselves and also shape your goals and how we are going to embrace our experience this year. What area of your life do you need to bring something fresh and new. For me, it was adding a fresh and original approach and reading angel astrology energy my way. For you, it could be something different. But whatever it is it starts with affirming something new over your life. Is it your diet or do you realize that you need to do something different with your hair even? What are some ways that you can build your confidence and make yourself feel better about yourself? Also over the next few days is a perfect time to take a good look at your goals that you set for the first of the year. Add some ways and steps that you can accomplish these goals. This energy is a perfect time to pray for clarity on how to achieve these goals, With the way that Jupiter is positioned for many it is asking that you let go of things that demand too much of your time and do not allow you to live for yourself and your higher purpose.
The energy is about recognizing what needs to be in your life and asking the spirits to reveal to you new ways to get your goals done to shift your thoughts on how your goals and things in your life are supposed to be done and be open to doing things differently in your life and business. You have to evolve your way of thinking; You may think that one area of your business may need you to do it this way, but this is high energy to be open to spirit to ask God hey, show me a better way to gain momentum in my business and life.
Many of us know that Jupiter sextile Pluto is about transformation and going into the inner realms of meditation and prayer for a spiritual shift. Faith is a big one here as well as taking time to activate your faith through prayer and praise. The energy of Jupiter sextile Pluto is also an excellent time to travel to different churches or synagogues or places of worship to sit and soak up the spiritual heat. Remember to be open to doing things different spiritually as well you never know what might be revealed to you sitting in that old catholic church that you have always wanted to visit. Also making spiritual travel goals are also highly favored at this time for me I want to go to Haiti and explore more culture and immerse more in Haitian Vodun, so I will be setting some goals but also allowing the spirits to activate within me the ways that are the best way to go about this journey.
Yes, Let's not forget that this planetary alignment is about getting your coin ministry together as well. But the Universe says with this planetary arrangement how can wealth be achieved not just an extra couple of hundred dollars bills in your pocket. From January 15th -17th 2018 is a time to set and pray for generational wealth. So money and abundance work is highly favorable at this time. Over the next couple of days, I challenge you to pray and meditate on your business, spiritual journey goals, and wealthy living goals like never before. Dream uber significant nothing is too hard for God to accomplish. Use this energy that Jupiter is bringing and allow yourself time to work with this power. Planetary cheers to reviewing your goals and speaking wealth that will last for generations over your life. Here's to seeing things differently regards of your life and business. Cheers to your travel dreams coming true and opening your heart, mind, and soul to allow your angels and ancestors of your highest good to show you much better ways to make your transformation and realignment of living your best self and life come true for you.
Remember the energy that you put out in this atmosphere over the next couple of days can very well stay with us until September 2018 working with you on how to achieve your hearts desires. So get to work dear souls and dream big and live in Joy.
Three essential moon phases are happening in January starting with the beautiful full moon in Cancer. Governed by Madre de Agua this Full Moon takes place in the evening on New Year’s day depending on where you reside in this lovely world. In traditional astrology, this moon is part of what you call a major Kite. Which indicates harmony between the planets since this is a grouping of planets this full moon is beneficial for many signs. I thank Olodumare that Mercury and Uranus are out of the formation. Hey, they are essential planets sometimes, but I think after what many have been through in 2017 its time for them to sit in the back of the bus and not take part in the party. So this is a really good look yo! We all can benefit from the formation in many ways.
By bringing in, this energy Madre De Agua is saying look guys we are all in this together. She is playing Big Mama and bringing everyone together we are all to sit at the table no matter what the race, creed color or difference we all will benefit from the energy of cleansing and love that she brings with the full moon.
I love when the Moon is chilling at home sign, and the way Mars, Saturn, and Neptune are set up Madre de Agua is saying extra gravy on the rice for us all. We can all work with this if we choose to use this energy correctly. Now dont get me wrong this can be an emotional time. But use your tears to your benefit and cry over your money candles for extra blessings and not your ex-mans picture and saying I wish he were here. If your a very sensitive being to the full moon remember that you’re probably holding another emotion because this full moon is about your family, your ancestral maternal bloodline, so this an appropriate moon to honor your maternal bloodline and do some healing if necessary. This full moon of cancer is a supermoon to grab that box of tissues and talk to grandmothers of your lives.
The water rules this Full moon, so you cant cry or bathe honestly enough. Feel like you need some water throw it on you, drink plenty of water as well. If you have water spirit guides, please spend some time with them. And even if you do not get into the bathtub and sit for a spell and speak with the Divine Mother a perfect simple spiritual bath for this moon energy is take
one cup of Sea salt
one cup of Epsom salt
A little parsley
A little dill
white rose petals fresh or dried
And some fresh blue flowers add the leaves
Seven drops of lavender essential oil or some fresh or dried lavender if you have
Seven drops of orange essential oil
Three drops of tea tree oil
Mix it in a bowl and pray your prayer to the divine mother that you pray could be the Hail Mary or whatever prayer brings you close to the holy mother's energy.
Make sure to air dry after you take your bath you can light a white candle to call in more healing energy if you wish while your bathing soaks at least 20 minutes. And have an open and honest talk with the divine mother about your 2018 direction for your family, home, love and finances and this full moon covers all that. If you like to use crystals in your full moon workings, the crystals that spoke to me were Lapis Luzil; Aventurine, Apatite, Rose Quartz will be excellent to place around the bathtub or next to your white candle. Remember the intention is everything. Set your plans on having more compassion, being full of love and for self and if you're single attracting the love that best for your higher person, as well as having more empathy and pouring success and manifestation magick over yourself and dont forgets to add in that little thing called forgiveness
So here's to resetting, releasing and manifesting with the Divine Mother Madre De Agua Happy New Years and Many Blessings.
When my Tata raised this question? I thought long and hard about it. As I pondered, I thought many love to talk about the ethics and integrity of your spiritual worker. But what about the ethics of the customer and consumer. When you speak of ethics, you start to touch on a particular branch of philosophical theory that deals with morality. Many like to come at spiritual workers when ethics is concerned. Yes, you should seek a worker that is honest, responsible and operates with spiritual integrity. But too many times customers put that responsibility solely on the worker. The customer needs some ethics as well. It goes both ways that the worker and the customers both should operate in an ethically, correct manner. Both parties should know the difference between good and pratice a loving and care consumer and customer approach and protocol to each other. Both sides should see the difference between right and wrong human actions, and know the difference between virtuous and nonvirtuous characteristics of a consumer and spiritual worker. There are customers themselves are dishonest they try working with multiple workers at one time as the worker won't know. Too many cooks in your spiritual pot will spoil your dish as well. Some customers have no integrity because they want instant results and but did you fuck up your life instantly I think not. Where is your respect some of the spiritual workers you coming at hold titles even though they dont flash them around, but you want to go at your Tata, Yayi with a disrespectful tone or address them like they your homegirl or homeboy? And some of you as customers need to apply ethics when dealing with your spiritualist, just as when you go to work, there is a code of conduct in the workplaces or principles in religions use a code of conduct when dealing with your spiritualist. As well as using ethics go over your morals as a customer as well refer to your Ori and review your tenets of what is right and wrong. So besides the workers out there, I am asking the customers, students, and those that have mentor relationships, I am asking you whats going on with your ethics as well?
