Yesterday was the start of the New Moon in Leo….and with the new moon comes new beginnings. From the time I was very little, I was always drawn to the moon and watching its phases change across the sky. Traditionally, the new moon is the time that you plant the seeds of what you want to grow in your life. This new moon is rife with the energy of Leo, the sign of the lion.
This image of “Strength” from the Wild Unknown Tarot Deck says it all about the lion. The lion is the strongest and fiercest creature in the Animal Kingdom, and could destroy any other animal on a whim. However, this lion comes baring a rose in his mouth. This lion approaches with grace and kindness, he is confident in his strength, he knows his power, and he doesn’t need to wield it to prove to others. He just knows what he has, who he is and he owns it.
This is the best lesson to take with us for the new moon in Leo.
New Moon Questions for You
What are powerful things that make you YOU?
What do you know about yourself that you are proud of?
In what ways can you be King/Queen of your own world?
The message of this moon is to rise and claim what is yours.
I have been in hiding for awhile – healing, growing, brewing new ideas, and learning a lot about the person I am and shaping/growing into the person that I have always dreamed of being. When we can truly own who we are, and walk proudly in this world without hiding our true selves, without compromising, without just being commanded by where life is taking us, but instead carving out our own path, it can be difficult work, and yet, the most rewarding thing there is in life awaits with that work.
I walk with you on that path of truth and love.
Here we find the opening, the beginning, the inspiration to create, to love, to feel, to connect.
Here we find the reason that we exist, what we have to offer, what our service is to this world, and discover the ways we can inspire others.
I want to ask you…..
What do you have to learn?
What do you have to teach?
I met up with Jordan in Greece a few weeks ago. He’s been a friend of mine for 17 years now and he is someone who has always inspired me with his passion for life and his willingness to deeply connect emotionally, not only with others, but with art, with film, with music, with books. He is a filmmaker, he is the eye of the camera, his art is capturing moments of emotion and expression and story. He took all the photos of me in Greece that I posted on my instagram. When someone who has known you so well for so long takes a photo of you, they reveal things that you may have forgotten about yourself, or things that maybe you never even knew. The days of adventuring with Jordan and new friends in Greece, the days of being in a new place and seeing the world with open eyes, helped inspire me, helped remind me who I am and what I was meant to do in life.
It has been awhile since I’ve worked my magic courses and taught the things that I’m so passionate about. I’m feeling alive, inspired and motivated to do the things that I’m meant to do in this world.
One of those things is to pass on the beauty and knowledge of things I learned from Grandma Helen and my family about making magic in our lives. Starting this Saturday, I’m doing a brand new course of magic I’ve never taught before, featuring practical spells with ordinary items, that will make your days extraordinary. I will be teaching it for six weeks, live every Saturday at noon eastern online on August 6th, 20th and 27th and September 3rd, 10th and 17th. If you can’t make it to the live events, the downloads are ready for you to watch and re-watch any time that is convenient to you. Also, I am making a brand new e-workbook of magic for this course and each week we cover, you will get the workbook with the information you need to continue working the spells and magic. It’s all brand new material and I’m very excited to start fresh!
If you would like to join us, you can sign up here for the Parlour, a 6 week Practical Magic Course, or if you are interested in a payment plan, you can paypal $15 to firstname.lastname@example.org and just do easy weekly installments of $15. I want to make this so everyone who wants to be a part of it can be here with us!
Happy New Moon, everyone. I missed you dearly and I’m happy to be back. I’m tackling my inbox this week and reaching out. Please know how important you guys are in my life, I am always grateful for your love, friendship and support. Let’s all move forward together, with the courage of the lion and the beauty of our passionate hearts.
