Virgo Full Moon magick to everyone! Some big things have culminated around this moon energy here in my personal experience including a huge ending/beginning that took place yesterday with a lot of recognition of the full circle experience and also how it all was the gift that gave me new life and anchored me here longer, most literally. I also have a big celebration today of my personal empowerment and embodiment, as well as some interesting things revealing themselves.
What are you experiencing around this energy right now? I know a lot of people that are having major shifts in their life, openings, and breakthroughs to their long-time dreams. Exciting to hear and witness.
Virgo has us looking at our relationship to our Earth Mother, our bodies and making that heart connection to their messages, releasing perfectionism, limiting beliefs, and inhibitions, stepping up rather than hiding, and reminding us we need to focus with conviction and integrity on the details and steps put into motion now if we really want to manifest our dreams.
Ready? Set. Go!
I took this photo early this morning when I woke from it beaming on my face through the window.
And today I awaken, reminded of what this day also means for me, as it is the 16-year anniversary of my legally changing my middle name to my official last name, hence now my full, legal name being Tania Marie.
So, a reflection of self-embodiment and a rebirthing and anchoring into who that is, as I’ve continued forward throughout the rest of my life.
It all seems timely and significant with Virgo’s energy right now highlighting things – my opposite sign as a Pisces – which is all about the “practical” application of creative self-expression in a way that most serves the highest good, which is inclusive simultaneously of you.
It’s down-to-Earth energy helps us to bring all of those dreams and ideas into grounded being, anchoring us more with integrity and commitment, and helping us to balance things, knowing that it isn’t just enough to imagine and have incredible ideas, but also we must apply these things in the every-day and understand the processes of manifestation. After all, we aren’t here on Earth for nothing!
Imperfect perfectionism is key too, allowing ourselves to be human through it all and to avoid extremism.
Synchronous to Virgo’s focus on practical matters of life including nutrition, healing, health, “service”, and work, last night we hosted our Tahoe Herbivores’ meetup here at our place for a private screening of “What The Health,” which is a follow-up film exposing government and big business corruption keeping us sick, from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy. – both great films and eye-openers for people, plus an added bonus of my partner Dave Simon having cameos in both. 😉
It was a great evening, awesome group of 12, and yummies I made including my air fried, breaded cauliflower with homemade vegan thousand island dressing, my almond “cheeze” ball, and pine nut roasted hummus with rainbow carrots – all a big hit! A guest also brought a huge bowl of sprouted lentils and home made pear kombucha to add to the yum. We even had an amazing sunset to welcome our guests. It was a lovely evening all around followed by dinner at a local Indian restaurant, but I had to smile at the tie-in with the Moon’s energy supporting this evening’s film and discussions.
Anyway, today I plan to get some Nature time in amidst some of my own “practical applications” I’ll be implementing to help balance and ground the energies and see what inspirations come through from immersion time with Terra.
And this integrated Nature and Moon energy brings me to the Magick Crystal Wands for an update.
Right after I posted the three wands that I was guided would be offered, two got spoken for.
So I only have the powerful Neptune and Nymph Wand remaining, currently.
Definitely not one for the faint of heart! It’s watery essence is anchored in Earthy manifestation, SO reminding me of the Virgo/Pisces dynamics! Wow! Perhaps it will end up staying with me! Hehe!! Weeeeeee!
You can get more info on it here, which includes the original link with many more photos of details of it as well:
As mentioned in this post I do have a bunch more wands that spoke to me and will in the future be channeled for offering.
That said, I got the idea yesterday when someone, who had really felt drawn to one of the wands that was spoken for, did not end up being the one to receive it, I immediately was inspired and knew I could create a unique wand for her with some of the elements I had collected and so that put a spin on things and now have 3 custom wand channelings that will be upcoming for individuals in similar circumstances.
So this could be an option too, if you desire.
However, I will reiterate what I shared in my last post on them, that these won’t be created right away, but in their own time, as I have to switch gears a bit for a while.
Who knows though, as I go by inspiration and if suddenly an alignment, divine inspiration, and energy hits and nudges me to make one, then I will.
How’s that for my own Pisces/Virgo integration of divine inspiration tempered with practical application? LOL!
Wishing everyone a balancing Full Moon!
This short and simple message of support and inspiration comes to us via a dear friend of mine who shared this lovely Tarot deck with me she’s enjoying the simplicity and clarity of messages from. She felt that readers here might enjoy this card’s message and I had to agree. Little did she know that it went along with a share I’d posted yesterday via Instagram/Facebook, so I’m adding that message in partnership with her card.
Please click on the photo above to enlarge it for the message.
And here is the synchronous message I posted, in case you didn’t see it and are not on social media.
It was about the path I’ve been walking, especially during and since our little over a year RV adventure, before settling in Tahoe and how it took me on a rich exploration to the depths of ancient Mother Earth womb energy and catapulted me through portals of expansiveness.
This is what I shared about the journey:
I dared to go further and at times felt pulled back like an arrow in order to shoot forward with focused intent.
It wasn’t all easy, as greater levels of vulnerable courage were needed to expose myself, to reveal more pure, unabridged energy at the well of my essence, and to be okay with holding the energy of misinterpreted darkness for others to reflect and throw energetic arrows at, while I stood in my truth as the only deflection, which allows the arrows to penetrate the core so they can be alchemized before returning.
I have felt the loud silence within and without that can be deafening and also beautifully penetrating.
I’ve communed with the harsh realization of collective belief systems and conditioning residing in my own DNA and made better friends with them.
I’ve stumbled and I’ve gotten back up.
I’ve spoken the truth of my own fear of not being able to do justice to the message I’m being guided to channel through my own ever-evolving expressive embodiment.
I’ve seen the other side of blind faith, as I’ve walked through doorways, bent time and reality, and made new breakthroughs that were miraculous in nature.
I’ve unearthed grief and known both tiredness and freshness with life and how every emotion is potential alchemy.
I didn’t know what I was doing or how I was going to do it until I did.
Life is all about the eternally present NOW unfolding and being willing to experience it with faith and humbleness of learning from a clean slate where nothing applies that you once did or knew.
Power lies in having trust during challenging situations, as no level of worry will see us through. Trust in the highest good for all always unfolding, regardless of how that looks. Remember that we’re conditioned to judge the human experience, but there’s always a bigger picture at play that we can believe in beyond reasoning. Our resilient hearts will understand when our limiting thoughts step out of the control seat.
I now find myself free.
And yes, this has been due to my self-belief and willingness to stand in my own uniqueness without comparison or worry/fear of judgment. I found it fun to see how a couple exacts I wrote in my share were in the card’s meaning. 😉
And more than ever I’ve decided to stand on my own in my own truth, as I’ve been seeing how even others living more in a different version than the 3D reality, or are on similar trajectories, are seeing something completely different than I do or engage in ways that are more relative to them than me, so my solace is simply within.
Love and creative magick to each of you in deepening your own self-belief or continuing to live it in the loud silence of your own experience, so that you may access that magick key to an inspired life always.
Yesterday we made our way down to Reno to share the day, warmth, cheer, and decadent delights with my family. It also proved quite auspicious. It’s nice to be close to them again to visit and especially so around holidays, as my parents are known for decorating the house in festive magick throughout. They are definitely the parents of a Faery, harnessing their own creative and artist alchemy to beautify and create dreamy realms that echo the heart of one’s inner child.
The photos here are but a tiny sample of how things were decorated, as they had splashes of autumn beauty everywhere.
From moment of entering their own mini castle in their little oasis sitting between two mountain ranges next to a wash and with their own season mini creek bed amidst their Faery yard, you feel and smell the welcome of entering into a place that nurtures the heart.
We shared a lovely day, enjoyed a huge feast both mom and dad prepared, followed by dad’s gourmet baked goods all made with love. They always make us everything vegan too.
The rest of the day was filled with conversation, naps for some with full tummies before dessert, and lots of metaphysical talk, and Tarot and homemade Rune fun, as we delved into explorations in both.
And we topped it all off with dad’s apple and pumpkin pie.
I marveled over how magickal the piece on my plate lit up with sparkly Faery dust and crystalline light.
Curiously, I had brought my small laptop with me, feeling like I wanted to share just the beginning of my book I’m writing with my mom, which would be the first time anyone but myself and those helping to channel it would hear it.
But apparently it was not the time even to share a glimpse of it with anyone, as when I pulled it out to do so, my computer wouldn’t turn on. The battery was completely drained, which has never happened before that quickly. And I did not bring my charger.
I got the message. It was still not time for it’s reveal.
And this occurred on a day that was filled with potent symbolism and messages leading up to arriving to my parent’s house.
Within a short span of about 35 minutes I’d seen 27 hawks. That’s incredible! They just popped up everywhere I turned. So many variety too. Some perched in trees, at the edge of meadows, on light posts, and a few flying straight at the car. All of them very very close, so I could see the full detail of their feathers, colors, faces, and incredibly powerful bodies. Each one, as if time stood still and locked in on them with a zoom lens and pause into timelessness. Amazing!
It was like an armada of sentinels and felt to be messengers from the Cosmos and my star family.
And, in the midst of the hawks, which are one of my main spirit guides, I also saw one most beautiful barn owl, which is my favorite owl and is part of my life path from here forward.
This incredible owl had unfortunately transitioned, but with such a beautiful, peaceful expression full of grace on its face. Her head turned, facing me directly.
And once again, time stood still, zoom took place locking in on her face, and another timeless pause so that she is etched in my mind’s eye.
This all felt powerfully meaningful for my life right now and what I’m involved in.
And then this morning as I was enjoying my favorite apple dumpling, my dad had made for us to bring back home, for breakfast with a homemade latte, I looked up and another incredible sighting appeared over Lake Tahoe’s portal directly in front of me where I sat at my computer.
An Arcturian symbol was etched in the sky, hovering over the Sierra Nevada Range, specifically over Mt. Tallac. This is a symbol of their main starship and one I wear in a sacred tattoo.
This is all no coincidence.
Something is afoot and it feels incredibly alchemical and much support is all around.
And so I continue forward and keep my senses on all-time high to be with what is unfolding.
There are messages everywhere and the more we open to presence and embrace, while expanding our perspectives, the more we see and receive them.
Not your completely typical Thanksgiving, but it fused Earth and Cosmos, physical and ethereal, nurturing comforts and expansive alchemy, human and star essence….my kind of celebration of life with the best of both worlds.
One of the ultimate spiritual lessons in life is gratitude. Gratitude for all the big AND little things…the seen AND unseen…the full gamut of experiences released from judgment and categorized value.
Focus on what there IS…not what you “think” you lack, as all things have a wider meaning with hidden gifts that reveal themselves when we release attachment and learn to understand how the highest good is always as work.
We just haven’t unwrapped the abundance yet, but the more gratitude you embrace, the more abundance you experience.
Gratitude isn’t just something to extend toward the so-called “good” things in life, but to ALL things – relinquishing the need to define, categorize, idealize, cast away, and judge them. That includes the “imperfect” that IS perfect and richly integral in our lives.
Today and always may you embrace the kind of gratitude that creates true alchemy.
Sending out deepest heart-to-heart gratitude for each and every one of you who is braving this journey together at this time in our collective experience. I know times get tough and intense, but you’re here and that speaks volumes. Thank you for your courage and love and for all of the love you’ve shared with me and others. Your light helps raise the vibration and makes more possible for us all. Keep shining and know that you are appreciated beyond measure.
I have felt the potent healing power and fertile creative potential of this Full Supermoon (Beaver Moon) for sure, which we haven’t seen this close since 1948 and won’t again until 2034. So to say it provides great potential, is an understatement and there’s no coincidence it is aligned with so much on the collective scene going on like the election and its implications for opportunity on a grand scale.
In simple terms we’re looking at our values with this Taurus Moon and that goes for the self, life in general for ourselves and the collective, and our beliefs around money and abundance as well. Taurus brings in a calming, grounding energy to help us balance things and with a Scorpio Sun, tempers that with our passions brought to the surface in strong, focused, yet patient ways, while integrating our deepest shadow and hidden treasures.
Steady and persevering like the Tortoise and with a focus on abundance and gratitude, rather than lack and denial of the beauty inherent in and around us. A call again for a return to harmony with Earth and partnering with Nature to create change.
We have the ability to channel our emotions and passions productively and to release, cleanse, and transform the toxicity that is running the show.
Since the Moon symbolizes our inner world and all things emotionally hidden, our deepest desires and dreams, and yes, our unconscious shadow and underlying fears, this is a chance to bring it all to the surface and truly feel and see it, learn from it, and then creatively produce from the core truth of our essence once it is revealed, by peeling away those veils.
There’s huge potential for change taking place as we end 2016 – a collective “9” endings year for us, before we begin 2017 – a collective “1” beginnings year. What will we choose to cultivate in this new era?
This Supermoon is amplifying and illuminating the toxicity for us, collectively, that we can choose to cleanse, release, and transform.
Personally, it has illuminated important pieces for me for sure and also strengthened the affirmations of my own values and stance in reflective support of them.
In our new place we are surrounded by windows that we leave open all day and night, since we are high above everything and so we can receive the beauty and gifts of Nature 24 hours a day.
There are tree beings surrounding some, with extended arms offering their gifts.
There’s the lake and mountains offering their expansive wisdom.
And morning, day, and night the Sun and Moon dance in light and colors so brilliantly.
What has been most special is the Moon, which moves around to the windows during the middle of the night where Her light then glows directly on my face as I sleep.
I love waking and being illuminated by Her magick.
And with the Supermoon energy She has been supportive in helping me to move through my own emotions and mourning.
I found myself waking up in the middle of the night just two nights ago filled with feelings about Cosmo and feeling him strongly. And as I looked, the Moon was illuminating the room and I was drenched in Her light. I could see the rabbit on the Moon’s surface and knew that Her magick, along with my beloved rabbit family were helping me to heal.
I had a lot of emotional release through the night with the help of the Moon and Cosmo.
And it was just what I needed, as while I did experience release of emotions during the time leading up to and of Cosmo’s transition, I was also needing to be strong for him and Dave. Then we had the whole move transition the last couple of weeks, and now as it has come to closure I’m able to release the rest of my natural mourning process.
The Moon has been my best friend in that process helping to bring out all that needs to and then helping to turn it into alchemy for creative potency.
Some may say these are the “blues of sadness” I am moving through, but I feel them to be the “blues of magick.”
This evident in the colors that showed up all around me on our hike yesterday and that I was immersed in.
It was not a “sad” blue, but an “enchanted” blue revealing all the hues of its beauty that are my favorite and this movement through my own pains as the natural beauty inherent in love and life, felt to be embodied as my true aura and put me forever in the realm of my nature and essence.
I will continue to embrace the flow and release that this beautiful and powerful Supermoon assists me in, as well as invite any more to come forth that needs to be transmuted as well.
I did experience just that also on the hike yesterday, as in conversation I moved through, made conscious, and claimed something huge in a Scorpio way, which will have huge effects on my own shadow integrated.
It is not always easy, I know! But the support is there. It truly is, if you truly invite and embrace it.
Yesterday’s beautiful 8 mile hike on Angora Lakes Trail (I love the reference to rabbits in the name and there was even a young woman with a little dog named “Tiny” that went by us on the hike – that was one of Joy’s nicknames – so my sweet bunny loves were all around me) was incredible in so many ways. We keep discovering hidden gems of lakes and new hikes all the time here in the back country of Lake Tahoe.
I played with my shadow and invited her peacefully in.
I found a piece of an old honeycomb with potent hexagon sacred geometry.
I looked at the reflections in a puddle illuminating the truth.
I got to see Fallen Leaf Lake from above at a new perspective.
I saw more reflections at the lower lake of Angora in the light of the Sun.
I then discovered the alchemy within my emotions that revealed the magickal blue inherent always regardless of the light being present, as we came upon Angora Lake just as the Sun dipped behind the mountains. I am the light.
And that knowing creates a ripple effect out to everything I touch and experience, transforming it all instantly.
Angora Lake reminded me of a beloved place in Montana that I miss and will return to soon, being anchored by the ashes of my sweet Joy and Nestor.
I even wore my cosmic pants in honor of Cosmo.
There is new life awakening from the natural cycle of all things. And that’s worth smiling about.
We are both of the dark and the light…we are their alchemical transmutation. When we remember and walk responsibly through the shadow of our truth, we recognize and embody the brilliance of our creative power.
We often are focused on searching for the light, and yet the mysterious magnitude and beauty is in walking the recognition of our complexity within the cosmic abyss of our consciousness in totality.
Every time I see amazing displays of light around me and the environment I find myself in, I realize it is only because I am embracing the dance with shadow and understanding its immeasurable potential, that these experiences and appearances are possible.
And in return, they are reflecting that message if in fact we don’t realize this.
It is how we responsibly utilize these energies that becomes the focus and creates the challenge we are here to harness with intentful awareness every step of the way so as not to duplicate recurrences of our past, but to align us with future expansive probabilities through the presence of all-encompassing consciousness now.
“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” ~Francis Bacon
Yesterday was filled with mystery and enchantment around every corner of Tahoe Meadows. A Faery’s delight for sure! Every season is beautiful, but I’m SO enjoying Autumn’s essence right now and the reflections of Nature’s messages. Everywhere I turned there were portals created by the arms of trees (sometimes double portals even!), meandering pathways through meadows and over brooks mirroring the journey of life, and golden essence everywhere hinting at a Middle Way – that Golden Mean – between extremes we are so much experiencing these days and learning to find that alchemy of balance and harmony with.
I even found a piece of an old honeycomb with its hexagonal cell symbolism of sacredness, which also reflects the cell matrix of our body template that holds memories and potential for soulful integration – all of which we are remembering and activating more and more.
Several days ago this raw quartz found me and as you can see it is quite unique…a perfect Cosmic Egg hatching. The treasure of its core beginning to reveal itself. Its timing couldn’t have been more synchronously aligned with layers of my personal experience and things showing up. It speaks of new realities birthing, sacred union manifest, creative spark of life, love’s boundless alchemy, embodying the keys to freedom, the merging of terrestrial and celestial, and a stargate to understanding the musical architecture of the Cosmos.
Yesterday, was a special day. We arrived in Reno, NV on Wednesday 10/5 where a reunion with my family took place. And the following day my mom, dad, and brother came to visit the Magick Bus.
It was the first time my brother got to tour the Magick Bus and the first time he met our fur babies. In particular, I have wanted him to meet and converge with Cosmo, as they share some key things and I felt their coming together would be a powerful healing alchemy for them both.
My brother loves animals, but he has also had this “old” and I mean “past life old” deterrence/fear around holding them. Yet yesterday also put that to rest when Cosmo worked his loving magick on him and found himself cradled in the innocence of my brother’s essence.
The alchemy pervading the Magick Bus was palpable.
The healing and activation had us all sharing communion in extended silence.
Above you can see Cosmo (who is both of the light (white) and the dark/shadow (black) went into a meditative trance as he was swaddled in love and Reiki both on the receiving and giving end.
My whole family is Reiki trained – my mom and Cosmo both being Reiki Master Teachers and my dad and brother attuned to Reiki Level 1.
Here he’s being held by my mom, who was sitting between my dad and brother….my mom’s and dad’s hands are the ones you see around him….Sacred Feminine and Masculine energies unifying through the Cosmo(s).
A Cosmic Egg is birthed and hatching with fertile, potent potential.
Symbolically, the Egg is not only Potential, but it also represents the Cosmos, the very ground of Being from which we spring. No wonder then that the Rabbit/Hare was at one time considered both male and female. To produce the Cosmo(s), both must be present….
Today we journey to the crystalline purity of Lake Tahoe – a portal of potency that feels to be aligned with this birthing new Cosmic Egg. A place we’ve always considered our home where much has entwined as an exit and entrance point in our lives.
Cosmo is excited to return to where his cherished Joy (my female rabbit who departed Summer Solstice) came into my life, and where his friends Gaia (my Russian Tortoise who departed through the core of the Earth) and Nestor (my twin soul rabbit who departed through Tahoe’s portal) both entered and exited – all sharing this portal home.
The magick is thick in the air.
Last evening’s portal sky here in Helena, Montana infused with creative potency….
Activate the heart of you by cultivating the art of you.
What do you dream your life to feel like? When you know this answer with all of you, the journey of bringing that feeling into creation of what you desire it to look like can begin.
Build a new relationship with yourself, as you explore your heart.
Learn to reflect your dreams into a beautiful creation of your own making – creating life as a work of art, as I like to call it (and is my personal motto).
Ever wonder what your life would be like if you started living the wonder?
Remember who you are and may all possibilities be open to you.
When you come to know your own personal processes you can be your own best friend and guide in how to get rebalanced if thrown off temporarily because you’ll know what naturally is you and what isn’t and what your patterns and triggers are.
It’s a patient and present process of consistent awareness in identifying, listening, and taking things in steps to lead yourself gently and lovingly back to center.
It’s also about seeing things as welcomed gifts rather than surprise attacks, to show you how far you’ve come with things and how quickly and naturally it happens because of the consistent repatterning back to natural flow you’ve committed to.
It doesn’t mean that you won’t ever have new things come up, but you WILL just KNOW that you can handle anything and you’ll naturally just do the alchemy of shifting things without even consciously knowing that you are.
That’s the beauty of it and what I love to experience more and more of.
You just become more of who you are and that is the continuous awareness – rather than a cause and effect, it becomes a natural dance and flow that simply moves through you instinctively.
Renewal is constant even if you don’t yet see it…..believe.
“Don’t despair too much if you see beautiful things destroyed, if you see them perish. Because the best things are always growing in secret.” ~Ben Okri
