Ah yes, another day, another potential world war...
I know, it’s pretty intense. We can all feel it! Whether or not war actually breaks out is yet to be seen, but what is known is that we need to approach this situation from all angles to get the full picture...
(And not get stuck in fear or confusion.)
Believe it or not, this tension between Russia and Ukraine isn’t so black-and-white. And it’s definitely not a new thing that’s happening…
This is a conflict that’s been building for years, and those of us in the west have been comfortably oblivious to it... (Honestly, maybe we still are a bit, but that’s what Spirit News is for!)
While it’s uncomfortable and upheaving for society around the world, this is a result of adults playing chess with countries for long into our history.
I don’t say that to disrespect or invalidate the seriousness of the situation… quite the opposite!
With everything going on in the world today, it’s easy to give into fear…
We become lost in the stories, and the emotions behind them.
Between the pandemic and now a potential World War III, there’s a lot being churned through the mainstream narrative…
But what if it's not all what it seems? What if the way we're taking it in is affecting our perception of the Greater Truth?
When we swim through the mainstream with mouths and eyes wide open, taking it all in, we become overwhelmed, disoriented, and confused.
What if there’s a better way to process all this emotional info?
Luckily, Pisces offers us waves of wisdom to take like medicine with our "main course"...
As we explored in this week's new Spirit Science episode, even when the water is dark and murky, it’s a sign of greater change…
Something stirring under the surface, beckoning us to take a closer look.
Seeing and feeling the darkness in the world creates...
With everything that's been swirling through the Spirit Mysteries Community, the Astrology Forecast from last week's Wisdom Moon was...
*GASP* Lost to time and space!
In other words, it wasn't recorded. (Can you believe it? It's not even Mercury Retrograde!)
That just goes to show... Evolution is a process, and it's IN PROGRESS!
Synchronistically, this little slip-up of ours led me to receiving even more Wisdom from the Full Moon I was not expecting...
As we explored with the Initiates during ceremony, your heart is another brain. Another whole operating system for creating your reality.
As an organ, the heart's neurons are directly linked to neurons in the brain. How cool is that?
That's why we say "Listen to your Heart." Truly - it knows what it's talking about!!
This morning, for example, I was on my usual morning walk in the mountains, when I felt a strong tug in my chest, like someone...
There’s a LOT of heavy energy both in the heavens and on Earth right now…
And so if you’re feeling super-sensitive, here are some potential reasons why…
You’re doing The Work. Not “work” like a 9-5, or working out… No, I’m talking about the Real, Spiritual, Visceral Work that happens whether we know it or not. Take a moment to acknowledge that, and give yourself a big hug… This life is not easy, and you can validate that for yourself.
Pluto is giving us a run for our money lately, especially this week… Any time there’s a Pluto transit, it’s a lot like taking a trip to the underworld… Scary as all hell (pun intended), but worth it - because we return to our realm wiser and more compassionate than ever before.
The Holly King is gone, and the Oak King now reigns
Yule is the time of the old winter gods!
Hail to Baldur! To Saturn! To Odin!
Hail to Amaterasu! To Demeter!
Hail to Ra! To Horus!
Hail to Frigga, Minerva Sulis and Cailleach Bheur!
It is their season, and high in the heavens,
may they grant us their blessings on winters day
Following on from the Solstice, many of you may not know that tonight is the Traditional beginning of the Yuletide... although let's be honest, we've probably all been getting into the spirit for a while.
Today, “Yule” and “Yuletide” are pretty synonymous with Christmas and Christmastide, but the meaning behind Yule is quite different from that of the Christian holiday.
The word “Yule” itself comes from Old English geol, which shares a history with the Old Norse, jól. Both these words referred to a Midwinter Festival centred around the Winter Solstice, which traditionally marked the halfway point of the...
*Trigger warning: Mature Content*
I know the Solstice "officially" begins at 10.59am EST tomorrow, but we tend to write these things as and when we feel and see the energy moving.
I must say, i'm almost surprised we made it to the end of the road this time. To get painfully candid with you all, this year has been arduous, breaking and seemingly unrelenting for me. I'm honestly surprised i'm still here. In fact, it's been one of the worst of my life, and it seems a lot of people have been feeling the same in some kind of way, to greater, middling or lesser (okay... you caught me, I rewatched Geralt slaying a Stryga, sue me).
As it's tradition on each of the Crossing Days, I find myself here again to explain the energy and mechanics of the Tides and Seasonal Rhythms... trying to make sense of the currents and forces laying within the Inner World and Her Mysteries, only this time I do so with an abject heart, with a fair bit of remorse, pain and awe-full perspective that would...
It's bittersweet... thinking on the past year and all we've gone through and accomplished.
The theme of this ceremony was "Celebrating Your Hero's Journey," and it couldn't be more appropriate.
Our Spirit Family has been through a lot... not just as a community, but as individuals.
And it's so vital that we honour this very human aspect of our journey so that we can accomplish above and beyond what we set out to do in 2021!
So, we got real and juicy with the details of our journeys... just as Gemini asked us to.
You see... Gemini is all about self-expression, while on the flip-side of the zodiac, Sagittarius shows us how to communicate for the benefit of collective learning.
We're being called to face our fears in the form of awkward dinner table conversation or setting clearer boundaries at work. (You know... just the best kind of...
If you’re drawn to Chris as a mentor, it’s no coincidence!
He knows better than anyone that who your mentor is sets the stage for how your magick practice will evolve.
When Chris first met his mentor, he was a confused ten-year-old seeking clarity on his intuitive energetic abilities...
"Most people's imaginary friends disappear after like five or six. Mine didn’t. I have very distinct memories of being in a sandpit surrounded by like four or five people. To me, it was fully physical. My mom sat me down and asked, 'Hey, are you okay? What’s going on?'
I couldn't control it and my energy was very out of control. If I got emotional, lights would flicker...that kind of thing. It’s not as fun as it sounds."
This is why he and his...
Believe it or not, most people are.
The shadow represents the unknown, that which we cannot see. It's in this space that we feel most out of control...and yet, it's in letting go that creates clarity and a new sense of freedom.
When you're afraid of something, it signifies a deeper learning (and healing) opportunity for your mind, body, and soul.
And oh Goddess, did we do just that this week with our fellow Initiates… We listened, we laughed, we cried...together, in harmony. This was the most powerful Manifestation Moon ceremony yet! Here's the astrology forecast:
This oppositional dance between our New Moon in Scorpio and Uranus Retrograde in Taurus gives us the chance to face our fears and see them not as things to be avoided, but as tools for self-reflection and self-mastery.
For months, Uranus Retrograde has been reminding us...
Scorpio isn't afraid of the dark, and neither are we. Here in Spirit Mysteries, we acknowledge that darkness is the Yin to our Yang, and keeps us balanced.
While most people fear their shadows, it is the shadow that teaches us how to grow and evolve from contrast. Before Light, there was vast, dark space...after Light, there are shadows being shed all over the place...not to freak us out, but to reveal shapes, patterns, and karmic cycles that we can learn and master as we co-create with our Divine will.
This doesn't mean it's always easy... in fact, Scorpio honours that it is F---ing difficult! She celebrates it. As the veil thins, nights grow and...
