Gonna Fly (from the Lefty Oracle Deck) by Kathy Crabbe

Leo Full Moon Oracle Card: Gonna Fly

Mantra: I change.
Affirmation: I am free to be me.
Element: Air

I'm ready to go.
To fly right outta here.
I know no boundaries on earth or elsewhere; above or below.
I am a force of nature; divine in body AND soul.
My magick fills me with purpose and freedom and yes, flight.
I surrender.
I let go.
I am free to be me.

If this card appears in a reading either your spirit or your physical body, or both are ready to fly, move, shake things up, make a change, shift directions, vamoose! Perhaps this will enable you to see things from a different perspective or perhaps you’ll actually shift your reality in a big way by making a major change in your life. Whether big or small, this card signifies change. So embrace it, welcome it, prepare for it ‘cause it’s a coming…soon.

In my own life I kept pulling this card over and over until it felt like my mascot. I didn’t yet know what direction it would take me, but I opened my heart to receive and surrender to guidance and change. And move forward I did without mental distraction and this is how the Lefty Oracle deck and guidebook was birthed and exhibited in a fine art museum for all to see!

*Gonna Fly is from my upcoming Lefty Oracle Deck coming out Spring 2017.

Leo Goddess - Cybele by Kathy Crabbe

Leo Goddess - Cybele by Kathy Crabbe

Cybele Mountain Mother,
Great goddess earth,
In divine madness we worship
And celebrate her birth.

Cybele or “Mountain Mother” is an Earth Goddess originally worshipped in Turkey.  She appears as a full-breasted and mature woman carrying corn and keys and wearing a crown and robe the color of all the flowers of the earth over which she ruled.

We’re two Leo ladies with a passion for beauty. We want to give every woman the gift of feeling strong, sensual and beautiful – to feel that little warm purr inside that makes her move with dignity, like a feline.

When we work, we really work hard to hunt down the sweetest zebra, and when we rest it’s all about occasionally twitching an ear to fend off the flies.

Our creative process comes in a burst of brilliant bi-polar energy and results in a fat stack of sketch papers, later to be sorted and polished sharp and shiny before the actual production takes place.

It’s like this: color, shape, lines, tones…our little visual carnivore hearts start beating faster.

Add texture, weight, drape…we’re together running for the prey, tiring it down. And then detail, fitting, final snips…it’s there and we’re feasting, dancing around the room wearing it, making poses, laughing, taking photos.

The imagination demands to be materialized, there’s nothing we can do about it. We walk with the Sun and the Sun shines with us.

Open Your Heart: Full Moon in Leo

Leo Goddess by Kathy Crabbe Breathe deeply and allow this Full Moon to wash over you. In our astrological charts the moon represents the mother and where we feel most comfortable emotionally. What feels like home to you and how do you turn a house into a home?  Take a moment to contemplate what this means for you.  If you know what sign your moon is in then add that knowing to the mix as well.  If you need help finding the moon in your birth chart then check out my Moon Charts here.

I happen to have a double Aquarius Moon (ie. my Moon is in the sign of Aquarius in the 11th house, the Aquarius house). I feel at home in groups and with friends and I'm also just fine being by myself doing 'so called' odd or unusual things such as what I'm doing here on this blog! I love meditating in groups --- the energy feels more intense and awesome.  I love learning in groups especially when the teacher thinks creatively or better yet CHANNELS the class material on the spot which is something I like to do for my  classes; that way each class is unique and hopefully transformational.

Caava Kicks Butt by Kathy Crabbe

Full Moon in Leo Oracle Card: Caava Kicks Butt

Time to sink, sink, sink into your subconscious. It's Mercury Retrograde right now so it's not time yet to move forward (wait until Feb. 11 or better yet wait until the Mercury shadow period is over and we're entering the Spring Equinox on March 20.)

This moon is gonna be a deeply felt and intensely emotional moon so be kind to yourself now.  Take time to connect and reach out to extended family or friends you haven't spoken to for a while; perhaps contact a medium to connect with an ancestor who has passed over or put in a dream request to 'see' them again.  It's time now to ask for guidance and healing from friends, your guides or the Divine.

This Full Moon is also very close to the holy day of Imbolc (Candlemas) which marks the half way point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox on the Wheel of the Year. This usually occurs around Feb. 2, but this year it technically falls on Feb. 4.  Traditionally this is a time of initiation, a time of quickening and a time when farmer's ewe's (sheep) began to lactate (the Gaelic word for ewe's milk is "oimelc").  Imagine taking that first long drink of fresh ewe's milk --- take the time to really savour it, then give your imagination free reign.

Behold by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty Oracle Card for the Immediate Future: Behold

Imagine yourself one year from now. What do you see? Jot down a few things.

I imagine all of us being in tune with ourselves more and more, just as we stay in tune with the New and Full Moons through these blog posts. Our intuition is stronger and we know what we need to be healthy, whole and holy. We love with all our hearts, we garden, we grow and we bake creatively. We do our part and we touch others on an energetic level. We also make time for rest and we find solace in our spirituality and in nature.
