Leo New Moon Oracle: Caava Kicks Butt

Caava Kicks Butt by Kathy Crabbe

New Moon Lefty Oracle:
Caava kicks butt


Mantra: I am strong.
Affirmation: I mean business.
Element: Fire

Song
I am a mean machine.
I love conflict,
getting angry,
and kicking butt.

But that’s not all!

I’m also charming, gracious,
well put-together and make
a mean strawberry/rhubarb pie.

So, don’t judge me
‘til you know me
and I’ll do the same for you.

If this card appears in a reading it’s self-evident that you need to take a stand. Who or what needs the boot in your life? Bolster your strength and courage and do something about it. NOW. Reach out for support. You don’t have to do this alone. Your heart is in the right place and you WILL move forward. There is a time and a place to take action and that time has come. Don’t charge in madly until you know exactly what you need to do. Write it down or talk it over with a friend if need be. Then move forward, one spiked toe at a time and it’s done. Good work, brave soul!

In my own life I usually like to wait to take action in regards to a grievance until I feel the fire in my veins. I’ve prepared for that moment by thinking and talking it through so I’m ready with the power of emotion and intellect for when I do take action and it gets results!

Creative Journal Prompt
Take a moment to pretend that you are climbing the tallest mountain around and that you have just reached the very top. Look around. Breathe the air, feel the exhilaration, the quiet peacefulness AND the pounding of your heart. We can be both: quiet and exhilarated. Take another moment to feel this duality within yourself. Now add a third element: knowing-ness. Then take one goal and apply these three elements to it while journaling and leave extra space in your journal entry so that you can record your progress over time.

Expressive Body Movement Challenge
Pretend that you have just climbed the aforementioned mountain. Then re-enact the part where you reach the top. What do you do? Express all three elements discussed above using expressive body movement. i.e. quiet, exhilarated, knowing.

Kathy's Leo New Moon Altar

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.

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.

Cancer New Moon Musings

Cancer New Moon & Solar Eclipse July 1, 2011 1:54 am pdt

The Well is empty so what do I do, I grab a 'lefty' aka Creative Soul Card (see below) and a moonstone and I dream.

I float without words, formlessly without intention, action or purpose; i don't need them, i am guided. My life is full (i have several who will miss me when i'm gone). i have nothing to give you, just my heart which you may carve up as you wish.

When words go, poetry appears; a language for the birds (no twitter jokes, please). I do have ONE wish though, that you are open to change, seek knowledge, get off your damn cell phones and worship Nature as your Mother. That's all I have to say (for now).

Gemini New Moon Musings

Each month at the new, full and crone (waning) moon I post a Creative Soul Card of the month along with actions, challenges, questions in my Moon Musing Group in the Creative Soul Circle (free to join ~ women only!)  Many of you have already taken my eClass (Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul) and have the lingo downpat ie. Moon Musing Journals, Collages, etc. so I really recommend taking this class if you’re feeling a bit confused. I’ve also included Moon Musing Playsheets for you to download so that you can follow along at your own pace.

Each month’s moon musing is different, because I wait for guidance from Mama Moon herself according to the zodiac sign she resides in and attempt to time my musings for the exact moment that she enters that particular sign.

I also suggest that you set intentions each new moon with the help of this New Moon Manifestation Exercise written by my favorite astrologer, Barbara Hand Clow.

Gemini New Moon Creative Soul Card: John’s Giant Banana. Choose your own card here.

Challenge: There is so much going on right now that I’m going to keep it very simple, now that IS a challenge!

Action: I’d like you to envision your new moon intentions as if they were torches and then imagine lighting each one of your torches as if we were standing together in a circle all around the globe; one torch sparking another and another. Then I’d like you to share any visions and insights that you receive in regards to each one of your intentions allowing the torches to spark and illuminate your intentions in new and exciting ways. (I hope that wasn’t too complicated?)

Affirmation: Please share your affirmation with all of us below. My affirmation for the group is “I step forward with a light step walking with ever greater resonance into beauty".

Obstacles: What obstacles and challenges might you face in regards to your intentions?

Success Outcome Marker: please share in the Circle.

Question posed by your card to you: if you’re having trouble coming up with a question please let us know so we can all try and help.

How does your card tie in? please share in the Circle.

A Message from Moonstone:

Share your Crone Time Musings with a special friend and do something different to celebrate, release and let go of unwanted baggage. For me, this month I'm sharing these usually private Moon Musings (reserved for my Moon Musing Group) with all of you. Woohoo!
