This is a very active time of the year: Christmas, Chanukah, the Solstice, Yule, New Year and the powerful last New Moon of 2022 (in Capricorn).
But I want you to know one thing: everything is working exactly as it should, according to nature’s divine plan.
This year, the Winter/Summer Solstice of December 21st falls on the day 3 E’ within Chol Q’ij according to the Mayan calendar. The nawal E’ rules over travel and exploration – both physical journeys and those within. When paired with the number 3, challenges on these journeys could arise and it is generally advised to expect delays, disruptions, cancellations, etc. We are better off spending the day going INWARD for some exploration on these days. Solstice is also an excellent time for ceremony to ask our guides to light up our path ahead.
Access to all that is magical and divine with ease and grace!
Ritual and ceremony have become a big part of my life and by performing & refining my practice, many ordinary moments have become sacred experiences. Looking back, that is exactly what I dreamed-in last Solstice:
Phew! I didn’t realize until this very moment how powerful that intention was.
If you are planning to do a SOLSTICE RITUAL (and I sure hope you do because the new moon 2 days later will help to amplify those new intentions) remember to also reflect on what you are grateful for. When we acknowledge our gifts, we cultivate a greater capacity to receive.
I am very grateful for our journey together!
Abundant blessings to you and yours and happy holidays. I would love to hear about your traditions at this time of year.
I feel like we all deserve a pat on the back. There were so many notable planetary features including our 4th Supermoon in a row, 5 retrogrades, The Perseids Meteor Shower, Solar Explosions, 8:8 Sirius Rising and Saturn directly opposite the Sun. The energy has been go-go-go and we are all feeling a bit shattered from it!
I’ve kept my head down mostly because I’ve been working on a new manifesting technique that I hope to share with you in the future.
But astrologically speaking, everything that we have been going through is for a greater purpose as the old continues to crumble. We are in a period of accelerated evolution like we have not seen before; quite literally upgrading our DNA & consciousness in order to move on to the next stage of our evolution as a species.
The question I’ve been asking myself is how to keep on my path towards greater love & unity consciousness and not slide back down the rabbit hole of doubt, fear, lack, and separation during this time.
A little voice reminded me, Cara, you’ve got great tools to keep your vibration high. Use them!
My tools include:
Talking to myself on long drives
Community (I’ve found a great new online Cannabis tribe)
LOTS and LOTS of WATER
I’m sure you have many tools too. I encourage you to make a list and to use them to keep your focus on what’s important. The stars foretell of a chaotic couple of months to come.
Here’s an affirmation for you during these times:
I am loved and supported in all ways at all times.
There is a full moon on Thursday 24 June and I am already dreaming of basking in its beautiful light. (It might also have something to do with the wonderful happy hormones still in my veins from all the Summer Solstice celebrations!)
If you do not already have a full moon ritual, here are a couple of tips to help you make it special:
Set the scene: Go outside, open up the curtains, invite the light in.
Have an intention: The full moon is a great time to let go of burdens and any negative emotions. Sometimes I write my intention. Sometimes I say it out loud. It can be something as simple as “I release everything that is weighing me down.” And so it shall be!
Use water: Our bodies comprise mostly water, the moon regulates the ocean tides and our menstrual cycles, so it makes sense to flow with the good stuff. I like to take a long bath by a window and sip on some warm tea. If you are near the ocean/lake/river, spend some time feeling into that energy. It is a powerful way to release negative energy and reset the nervous system.
Crystals: The energy from the full moon will charge up your crystals and make them super potent again. Lie them out where they will have maximum exposure to the moon’s light and leave the rest up to Mother Nature.
! The energy from the full moon usually lasts for about 3 days afterward, and you can feel a little “crazy” or drained. People often call it a hangover. I’ve experienced that many times. If you feel this way, take time to rest. Sip on your favorite tea (or something stronger), journal, and take things slow.
Before you know it, we will be on to another moon phase and welcoming all things wonderful and new.
