Into the Dark: Winter Solstice & New Moon in Capricorn

Dear Creative Soul,

When I sat down in my shamanic New Moon Circle to honour and celebrate the upcoming Winter Solstice and New Moon in Capricorn this is what I channeled:

Oh Winter, Cailleach, Ancient Crone, Dark Night, I listen to your Silence and I hear the cauldron bubble and the owl hoot. It’s time now to go within, to the dark, dark place where death and ice dance our name. Beneath the earth we enter Her barrow, Her cave at sunrise, Solstice morn. First light we see touches our third eye through this opening: the Light…the Light…she does return and within her, Hope and Dreams and Seeds are planted. It is the New Moon in Capricorn so let us plant these seeds, these dreams and tend Her garden for we are called…YOU are called…the wheel turns and we reply:

I AM Goddess
I AM God
I AM the Light
I AM the Dark
I AM holding Circle
Blessed Be

Demon by Kathy Crabbe ~ Creative Soul ‘Lefty’ Card

Creative Soul Card for the New Moon & Winter Solstice: Demon

Affirmation: Into the dark you go: be guided, be brave, let go.

The lore is ancient when She was venerated and He was equal to the task. Blessed Be the Balance is shifting now ~ can you feel it? Describe. Take a moment of silence, meditation, contemplation then journal and discuss.

My Winter Solstice Vision
As for me: I feel at peace; calm, quiet, centered.  The darkness is velvety. I am surrounded by my guides, totems and star beings. I lie down and they bless me as my third eye tingles. The Hag, the Cailleach and I peer into her cauldron and I get in ~ to die and be reborn. I wait for the perfect moment; the moment of Solstice, to be born as light returns. I scream then I sleep; a new day has come.

Intention Setting for the New Moon
Let go into darkness and as you are re-born and the Sun returns, it’s time now to set your intentions for the moonth ahead. Don’t forget to journal too!

The Night Speaks: Purple Nightshade Goddess painting

I hadn’t painted in a while, but last night I had some time to myself and felt inspired to paint a night Goddess.  I’m also thinking ahead; cause I’ve got 2 art shows coming up and I’d like to have some brand new Moon Goddess paintings to show off.  When my friend Tony heard about my new painting and it’s title “The Night Speaks” he asked if she could perhaps be a Nightshade Fairy or Goddess and methinks she is; her hair matches the wild purple Nightshade growing in my front yard (pictured below).

The Night Speaks by Kathy Crabbe

Nightshade Lore: Deadly Nightshade also known as belladonna, is one of the more dangerous herbes of the practitioner. It was Deadly Nightshade which Juliet took as a potion, and brought sorrow and death to herself and Romeo…it was also used to invoke Bellona, and other Goddesses of War..may be used to invoke Circe, and is the appropriate herb to consecrate ritual tools made of lead…may be used in the consecration and charging of onyx. They do well stored together. ~ The Master Book of Herbalism by Paul Beyerl

Gemini Full Moon ~ Pink Sweater Cuddle-Party

Relax…Calm…Quiet…Peace

This is what I’m most in need of now and I bet you are to!

So, to celebrate this Gemini Full Moon, instead of a Geminian mindblast (all in good fun, of course) we’re going to use our minds to induce calm. How does that sound? p.s. The material within this post was all channeled specifically by me for this Full Moon and if you’re interested in experiencing the Body Movement Challenge pls. sign up for my free Facebook Circle here.

Psychic Sunday ~ Thanksgiving ‘Party’ at the Owl’s Lantern

Sagittarius Goddess Artemis by Kathy Crabbe

Sagittarius Goddess Artemis by Kathy Crabbe

Dear Creative Soul,

With Artemis and my mentor by my side I’m stepping up to the plate and bringing my own voice more authentically to the forefront of all that I do.  So, what does that mean for you?

My Creative Soul Classes are now called Moon Circles and my hour long Circles are now free (donation only).

I’ve also designed a new banner for this website which was based upon the badge I used for my Divine Feminine eClass which I’ve renamed the 4 Week Moon Circle.  I’ll be offering this Circle at Mt. San Jacinto College and once again at Susun Weed’s Wise Woman University in 2015.

Why do you need to know about all these changes?  Because I’m finding my way and I want you to know what that looks like ’cause who knows, maybe it will inspire you too. I’m spending more time listening to my guides and my ancestors. I’m devoting more time to my art-self (and really digging the work of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington). I’m learning how to speak in public through Toastmasters and through joining the Holistic Registry in Menifee, CA where I’ll be giving 60 second talks and then hour long presentations (Moon Circles). I’m being HONEST with myself and with others about what it is I actually do (I’ve updated my bio to reflect this which you can read at the bottom of this post).  So if this resonates with you then you’re in the right place.

The other thing I’m doing differently now that I’ve come out of my Hermit Phase (for the last 5 years; basically since the economy took a nose dive) is that I’m giving in-person intuitive readings starting this Sunday, Nov. 30 at The Owl’s Lantern in Fullerton, CA.  And I’m doing readings differently than anyone else (as far as I know). I’ll be channeling/writing what comes through and then talking about it and giving this written material to the client ’cause that’s how I work best and I’m no longer afraid to stand up for my own weird and wonderful way of doing things. I believe it makes for a better reading AND a reading that you can actually take home with you.

New Moon in Sagittarius ~ Radical Acts of Love Light the Way

It’s the Sagittarius New Moon on Saturday, Nov. 22; free, fierce and fiery…Sag is a mutable, Fire sign ruled by the planet Jupiter, so hold onto your hats, things are heating up (even if the weather isn’t!)

Each New Moon I channel Divine Wisdom which I share in my Museletter, my Creative Soul Circle (free on Facebook) and with my class at Yoga for Life in Temecula (CA) which takes place on Friday, Nov. 21 from 6:30-8 pm. Learn more about my classes here. Creative Soul Readings and Moon Charts are also available to start your month off on the right track.

Creative Soul Expressive Body Movement Challenge:

Hot is the flame. You ARE the flame. Stand, or sit up very tall; feeling yourself becoming the flame as you burn, waver like a flame, melt wax, dance, jig in place, alight!  How does that feel?  Don’t just describe it, but rather DO IT; move or dance or sway – feel it, feel it, feel it.  Go into your body and ask it what it needs right now.

My experience: I swayed gently in place and felt my eyes burning.  I wanted to burn with passion and a vision for change. I wanted to cut through the bullshit and touch the heart through radical acts of love; transforming nations, killing haters; their hate turning inwards and onto themselves as they are no longer able to hurt others. My vision burns white and it heals, it cleanses, it transforms. I open my palms and I feel no heat…I am one with the flame. I pray and send thanks to the Divine for this teaching.

About Kathy
Kathy Crabbe is a Creative Soul Guide, artist, author and educator. Originally from Canada, Kathy currently lives and works in the wine country of Temecula, California. Kathy created the Awaken Your Creative Soul class after spending 7 years drawing a Creative Soul Deck using her non dominant left hand. This awakened Kathy’s intuitive, creative soul in new ways and inspired her to help others follow their dreams. Since then Kathy has given over 1000 intuitive readings using her Creative Soul ‘lefty’ deck as well as teaching at the Wise Woman University. Her art has appeared in galleries, museums, magazines and on HGTV. Kathy formed a writer’s group in Temecula to share her ‘lefty’ art and poetry which she also published in a zine featuring local writers. Kathy and a life sized Lefty were invited to speak at an International Women’s Day event in Los Angeles that the LA Times dubbed “self esteem boosting” which was almost as dreamy as hearing her favorite song performed by Michelle Shocked in the background as she spoke.

My Lefty Drawing is Published in the NZ Creative Cronies 2015 Moon Calendar!

Kardin by Kathy CrabbeMy ‘lefty’ drawing titled Kardin has just been published in the 2015 Moon Calendar Astrological Diary put out by the New Zealand Creative Cronies, a group of three astrologers: Minerva, Robyn and Arafelle who live on co-operatively owned land in the Far North of New Zealand.

I find that this Calendar is similar to my other favorite moon calendar, the We’Moon Datebook but with a Southern Hemisphere emphasis such as the times listed in NZ clock time. I also love how each New Moon in the book has a full page with a ‘New Moon Map’ which is a graphic image of planetary positions relative to Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Southern Hemisphere, at the exact moment of the Moon/Sun conjunction. I also like how each day is accompanied by a phrase, affirmation, or bit of wisdom. Plus I LOVE the artwork which is so interesting; they feature abstract work, figurative fairytale illustrations by Aralyn Doiron plus several nature paintings – so refreshing and innovative rather than simply more super realistic and highly detailed Goddess Art. I also LOVE that they pay their artists as well as sending us a copy of the Diary!

I must say that I am quite partial to anything Kiwi because my brother, Gary Crabbe lives on the South Island of New Zealand where he is a viticulturist growing grapes and making world class Pinot Noir wine with the help of his wife Lynn at Coal Pit Vineyard.

You can order a Moon Calendar & Astrological Diary here: http://mooncalendar.co.nz

Prints/cards of Kardin are available in my shop.

Blessed Mama Earth Balls ~ Happy Full Moon in Taurus

Dear Creative Soul,

It’s the Full Moon in Taurus; an earthy, lusty, fixed sign that just loves life’s luxuries.  This Full Moon I am feeling guided to share something personal since Taurus does so love to get down and dirty; hands in the muck so to speak, and I do hope you join me!

To start things off I pull a card from my Creative Soul Deck (aka my ‘lefty’ deck) for guidance.

Ali by Kathy Crabbe (Creative Soul Card)Creative Soul Guidance: Ali

Affirmation: I believe in me

Ali, with the world on her head is a seeker and a finder of ways to help and serve human-kind; a heavy weight indeed, but loaded with joy and blessings as well.

Where are you guided to serve? And do you serve already, or if not do you have any wishes and dreams for serving/helping others?

As for me I’ve been a spiritual and intuitive artist for many years and I just love to share that with others through my writing, my art, my blog, my creative soul readings, my classes etc.

Creative Soul Challenge

In what ways could you better serve others and yourself in the process? How will you begin to serve or continue with what you’re already doing?

I do pretty well in this regard, but I am also interested in public art projects which beautify sad and neglected places and help heal broken hearts and souls in the process. I am looking into a public art commission in Riverside County as well as reading an inspirational book by Lily Yeh called “Awakening Creativity: Dandelion School Blossoms”.

Ande was ready for any adventure by Kathy Crabbe

Ande was ready for any adventure by Kathy Crabbe

Creative Soul Card: Ande was ready for any adventure

Affirmation: I adventure within on a journey of soul.

We are going deep within for healing at this new moon to visit the small, scared child within as we go back to a time when tears were held in or released.

We journey.

And we journey.

Until our small, naked self appears and we cry out our own name. We reach for our child self and we hug her or him close allowing the warmth of our touch and our hearts to melt…to melt…to melt our fears and to release their grip on us, washing everything clean.

We allow our child self to reside in us where she/he will be safe and protected forever.

Creative Soul Challenge

Who did this to you? Who caused you grief and trauma and hurt as a child? And can you go back in history to see this pattern repeating itself through the generations?

malachite sphereMalachite’s Healing Song

Bless me Mother

Bless me Father

For I am whole and holy

and perfect just as I am.

My healing comes in leaps and bounds

and I am open yet vulnerable

to life’s travails.

So I ask for Your protection

and Guidance on this long road

called Life.

And I ask for Your Blessings

as I sing Your song:

I am but a bee

in the flower

in your garden,

where bliss

resides in me

around me

around us all.

Blessed Be

I am a Canadian born, self taught intuitive artist, writer, teacher and creative soul guide currently living and working in a desert valley of Southern California surrounded by ancient oaks and an elfin forest. We live on 5 acres in a home created by my husband that we share with our dog and cat muses, Abby and Spartacus. I’ve been drawing since age two and offering creative soul guidance since 2008. I teach a class called Awaken Your Creative Soul which is accompanied by my Creative Soul Deck.

Artists Around the World Blog-Hop

I am honoured to participate in this blog hop featuring artists around the world. I was invited by talented artist and intuitive reader Adrienne Vita along with the illustrator Marta Berk to participate.

Why do I create what I do?

I never know exactly what it is I’m about to create next actually. I let spirit guide me and am often surprised by what comes out, but this is all part of the creative process, non? I do know that whatever I create is exactly what i need at that moment to grow my creative soul.

How does my creative process work?

My creative work anchors me to the Divine and is often exactly what i need to help guide me along my path emotionally and intuitively.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Which work? I have so many different styles: cartooney…abstract…detailed realism…whimsical children’s book illustration style…etc.

What am I presently working on?

Currently I’m developing a new class called “Awaken Your Creative Soul”; a creative, spiritual class where students create affirmation cards using their non dominant hand along with moon collages! I find that developing a class and teaching is an incredibly rich and satisfying experience creatively. I also continue to create more ‘lefty’ drawings combined with collaged words/phrases that may end up being published in upcoming Creative Soul decks that I hope to put out every year. I also channel healing songs, affirmations and Creative Soul Challenges and Body Movement exercises every New and Full Moon to accompany a Creative Soul Card chosen specifically for that Moon and shared with my class.

The Divine spark within.

Two blogs or artists that inspire me:
