2016 DEC: Moon of Long (Cold) Night


((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

As 2016 winds down, it is a good time to take a personal inventory; if we are honest with ourselves, we have many blessings in our lives, and we should be grateful. It is also a good time to make decisions about 2017:

  • What do we want?
  • What will we pursue?
  • What will we forsake? 
  • Where will we go?
  • How will we get there?

This particular Full Moon is custom made for decision making and reaffirming; consider a ritual to concert your efforts. I suggest the following:

Manifestation box: This is as creative a project as you would like it to be! Choose a box you like, decorate it as you want, fill it with whatever you desire. There is only one rule: everything you choose must support what you wish to manifest in the new year. Looking for love?Choose a small cedar box, decorate with wedding lace, fill it with hearts. ((NOTE: This example is intentionally cheeky; please consider seriously what/how you wish to manifest before you begin.))

Spell jar: This simple spell works on the same principle as the manifestation box. In an empty glass jar, place sea salt and rosemary on the bottom to keep your intentions clear and positive; add your desires to the jar* and seal with the usual lid. Keep the jar on a window sill that it might catch both sun and moon light as the days pass; add any new intentions during the Dark Moon, take an inventory and add gratitude during the Full Moon. ((*The desire may be recorded on paper(any color you like), or bay leaves.  You may like to burn the paper/leaves offering when as you find desires manifest throughout the year.))

Burn cedarwood and rosemary: You may do this anytime you feel your focus or intention waning over time. Allow yourself to meditate on your intentions as you take in the fragrance.

Vanilla dispel: If you are feeling anxious or off-center, light vanilla candles and allow yourself to be comforted by the scent. See your anxiety burning up and floating away from you.
