The Energies of New and Full Moon in the Moon cycle

The new moon is a birth. As the waxing phase of the moon occurs, it grows and matures until it reaches its ripest expression on the full moon. In the fullness and exuberance of this moon phase, the energy is naturally aligned with outward expression like social gatherings, circle ceremonies, parties etc. As the waning phase happens, the moon, turns again into a thin crescent, finally dissolving completely into the dark of the moon, wherein, that birth now becomes a death. Thus each lunar cycle, we are reborn. It’s during the new moon that we are most aligned with contemplating our intentions, integrating our experiences, and rejuvenating ourselves so that we can start the cycle all over again. Each new moon is the beginning of a new lunar cycle. It is an aligned time to consciously clear away obstructions and write down new intentions for that lunar cycle, asking for divine assistance in realizing them. New moon is organically a very meditative, inward, introspective time and thus a good time to journal, meditate, dream, create art, connect with your inner life. Ceremonies that are about beginning again, releasing the old, and moving on, can most effectively be done around the new moon.

 

The Wheel keeps turning, turning..
travelling us along the never-ending return.
To comeback to where we have been before
Only we seemingly are changed
This is the constant and the never changing
interweaving iridescent threads of
ancient remembrance through our lives.
Imbolc is upon us; the light that has been hidden in the dark, underworld now begins to reappear. The first shoots of the earliest snowdrop and crocuses begin to show themselves—tender and almost translucently green.

Dear Beloved ~
I am offering a zoom call for “Post Transmission Reflections” which will be an opportunity for us to connect and share around the theme in the full moon transmission. This is an open forum for members & everyone to share our reflections, our wisdom, our art, poetry, our inquiries.. ..whatever your response is to the inquiry in the Transmission for that moon. We are shaping this new offering ourselves, so we will see what the collective of who is inspired to come participate, wants to bring into form and feel supported by in our spiritual journeys.
We invite you to join this post transmission circle and become a member of our community at the Sanctuary. This is a community of diverse beings woven together in service to the One Heart.

~ Connected in the Web of Oneness ~ Soul Salon Spiritual Tea Party “Reali-TEA” January 22, 2020 @ This is an Online Event
Jan 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Now, more than ever, we are remembering the importance of our heart to heart connections with each other and with the Earth! With the energy of change being brought so viscerally into our awareness, as we move into the Unknown, we feel naturally impulsed to reassess where our roots are, what connections are serving our remaining centered in Love, no matter what storm is taking place. The Sanctuary of the Open Heart is serving to strengthen our rootedness in Love together! In this technological time of texting and tweeting (which serve their purpose) I feel a deep desire to connect heart to heart, voice to voice… to see how we can serve each other in staying centered in Love. To begin this process of staying more connected in the web of Oneness, I want to start by offering…
SOUL SALONS: SPIRITUAL TEA PARTIES..
for us to connect and share hearts, Witness each other, offer and feel supported on our journeys, catalyze and open to new growth rings in ourselves, uplift our frequencies and anchor peace in ourselves and the world. We will start by being led in a meditation to open us to sharing from the deeper parts of Self. Then I will offer soul inquiries for you to discover and weave your thread into our Web of Oneness. We will then open to sharing what you brought to share, Witnessing what you have moved toward or set down on the soul journey, asking pressing soul questions.. whatever we want to dream up as valuable for our time together on a zoom call! Finally we will work with a practice that can help you stabilize.. with a tool for turbulent times!
Prepare to be uplifted, to have fun, be inspired and most importantly to connect in the web of Oneness..
There will be differently themed Tea Parties every moon.

Turn of the Wheel Seasonal Celebration ~ IMBOLC / CANDLEMAS
Feb 2 @ 1:06 am – 2:06 am
The Wheel keeps turning, turning..
travelling us along the never-ending return.
To comeback to where we have been before
Only we seemingly are changed
This is the constant and the never changing
interweaving iridescent threads of
ancient remembrance through our lives.
Imbolc is upon us; the light that has been hidden in the dark, underworld now begins to reappear. The first shoots of the earliest snowdrop and crocuses begin to show themselves—tender and almost translucently green.
In my garden, the earth is still freezing at night. And yet, the sunlight is melting her by noon each day and light remains until after 5 p.m.
The days are bringing more light to us. With this light comes a nudge from Mama Gaia that it time to awaken from the deep time spent in the womb of the Mother, to begin pushing our way through her body into the light. To begin again. To be born anew.
The earliest days of spring are often the coldest and most intense; the light returns to the frozen land and yet, there is light and it triggers something ancient and primordial within us—a remembrance of LIFE again breathing within us. This is something that is governed by a deep cellular knowing, a history written in the blood, breath, and bones of each of us.
What I know for sure from my practices—from my own inner listening—is that in a world that appears to be so chaotic as we lurch between the poles of destruction and creation, this cadence of the Mother is indelibly etched in each one of us … if we have ears to listen.
It is a kind of intimacy with LIFE that each one of us is being called to renew … a commitment to walk as Her in all places on the planet.
It is an invitation to return again and bring the fullness of who we are now in this cycle of life … what treasures we will bring to birth as we continue to mature into the beauty of who we are.
We are deeply held.
Even when the appearance of things is spiraling out of control and seemingly off its axis.
Even then, we are held.

The marking of the high holy-days for me is actually a practice that keeps me rooted to life and death and rebirth. It reminds me of the ancient part of myself and the alchemy of all life. It is rooted in each one of us. And this relationship forms the basis of all others.
So, I invite you to feel this in yourself beloved ones. I invite you to commune with this rebirth, this moment when we are called again, as we have through eternity, to awaken and arise out of the darkness, to begin the journey again—the same journey only somehow, of course, deeply different; this is the paradox within which we are exquisitely held throughout our whole life.
It is the only constant within ceaseless change.
Elayne Doughty Ordained Priestess, Focalizer of the Priestess Presence Temple
Consider celebrating this Turn of the 8 spoked wheel, the precious Holy Day of Imbolc.
