Question

Hello Ladies,

I have a three questions for you.  What do you stand for?  Who do you standup for?  Who’s shoulders do you stand upon? Good questions to ponder this Independence Day Full Moon. In circle we’ve honestly answered these questions out loud many times and our personal answers change from year to year as we grow and change. Being witnessed as we speak our truths is so powerful, it brings strength to our personal knowingness and convictions to our action.

We will not gather on July 4th full moon, but your voice can still be heard by a broader audience.  I’ll post your answers on our blog along with your picture.  Now more than ever it’s time for us to show up with a fiercely peaceful messages of the divine feminine.

Your input is very important to me and will strengthen our tribe. Here’s a link for your response email 


Sonya Jason is hosting a Zoom full moon ceremony, Saturday July 4th. 5:30pm to 7pm


Take good care of yourself.
Sincerely,

Summer Solstice Stillness

If you’ve felt a slowing of energy in the last few days, it’s perfectly natural. Sensitive souls feel Mother Earth’s Solstice pause, as she slowly turns on her axis to begin the  journey to Winter Solstice.

Summer Solstice 2020 was widely observed on Saturday June 20th, but in actuality, the Solstice pause began Friday June 19th and lasted for 4 days. Today was the first day we’ve experienced one less minute of daylight.

On Saturday, in celebration of the official Summer Solstice, I converted the nursery greenhouse into a prayer~flag art studio. The first two people to arrive were young men. This was the first time I’ve ever accepted the masculine into a Moon Mothers event. It was beautiful! I loved witnessing the divine masculine stitch gratitude and healing intentions into their prayer flag creations.

Over the last few days, I have not been compelled to do my normal busy plant care at the nursery. I can’t help but simply bask in the incredible silent beauty of the bright summer flower blossoms and healthy green leaves. In those still moments of communing with the plants… I feel true contentment in knowing that I’m in alignment with the rhythm of Mother Eartht.

Sincerely,

Summer Solstice Celebration

You’re invited to Summer Solstice Celebration
Saturday June 20th 11am to 3pm
Moon Mothers Nursery
401 Prospect Way Half Moon Bay Harbor

This creative celebration of high summer will span 4 hours, so we will not all be together at the same time. We will practice covid precaution by being outside and social distancing, hence the 4 hour time span.  Come anytime between 11am & 3pm. Individually we will create a prayer flag and weave it onto new strand that will unite our tribe in prayers for our country and the world.

Last week I made a double sided demonstration sign and stood with hundreds of Coastsiders in a peaceful demonstration of Black Lives Matter to protest George Floyd’s murder.  Also, I painted a BLM rock for our labyrinth before the full moon ceremony.

   

Now, it’s time to create messages of peace and healing that will silently speak tranquility.


All prayer flag materials will be provided.  Your welcome to bring your own needle and thread if your compelled to embroider your flag or stitch the edges.

Looking forward to creating and stringing prayer~peace flags with you on Summer Solstice.

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo
P.S. We will not gather on July 4th full Moon.

 

Hecate Time

Cloaked in a long black hooded cape and holding a crescent moon shaped sickle, she is to be revered, not feared or confused with the Grim Reaper.  Hecate, the dark Goddess of wisdom and intuition, is a way shower. She stands silently at the crossroads of life, holding two torches to light both directions, to assist one in seeing through illusions and proceed down the right path.  Her spirit is strongest at midnight and twilight, when the veil between the worlds are the thinnest.  She stood at the gate of Hades, alerting Persephone’s mother of her whereabouts.  She is a helper and will assist all that call upon her.

After sheltering in place for two full moons and gathering remotely via Zoom, I felt a strong desire to gather the women in person for the June full moon ceremony.  I had a feeling of boldness and fear.  My intuition informed me that it would be alright.  As circle leader, I needed to be cautious and gathering in person might be reckless.  At this crossroads decision time, my intuitive spirit of Hecate informed me it was time to reunite the women in person.  I send out the invitation with cautionary guidelines.

On the full moon, the helpers showed up.  Unannounced, Ginni (Fire Goddess) showed up early to create a strong fire. Kellie showed up to lead the drum rhythm and Hecate invoking chant.  Five other brave ladies arrived and we cast our divine circle.  Heeding scientific health guidelines we gathered outside, wore masks, held silk scarves to connect our circle and there was plenty of hand sanitizer.  Adding this foreign health protocol we proceeded down the path of traditional Moon Mother ceremony ritual.  As we walked the labyrinth, chanting the Hecate invocation to a steady drum beat we found clarity in this historic crucial decision time.

Be well and enjoy summer.

Sincerely,

Wisdom Wands

One of the best things about our Zoom full moon ceremony is that Moon Mothers from hundreds of miles away, were able to join us.  

It was a wonderful surprise when Heather logged in from Maine.  She moved away a few years ago and we missed her dearly.  She was sitting outside, lit by candle and moon light.  We began out gathering at 7:30pm pacific time, a half hour before sunset and the moon was still below the horizon.  It was 10:30pm on the East Coast.  She panned the camera to show us mother moon in all her super full moon brilliance.  It was a lovely little time travel.

On this night we dedicated our ceremony to the Goddess Ixchell, Mayan Medicine woman.  read more about Ixchell  Our healing medicine work had begun days before our full moon cyber circle;  When each Moon Mother foraged for the perfect stick, branch or root for the armature of her Wisdom Wand. I love how our creative tribe thinks out of the box.  Caroline chose a root and Shannan choose a sinuous willow branch.  The invocation fabrics were just as creative, Heather used pieces of her wedding dress and Lorna used pieces of her hippy blouse from the 1970s, Danielle used flower vines from her sacred garden and Kimberly ( who doesn’t live on the coast) used seashells from her visit to Half Moon Bay.

During our time together we finished our wands. We wound our armatures with fabric and string as we recited healing words, that raised our collective energy and sent a message of well being to the universal mind.  We all spoke at the same time creating a cacophony of healing sound.  Interesting how one voice would rise with clear strength and then fade back into the many, then another would ring with clarity.  Our unrehearsed words wove together into a symphony of the highest vibration of a healed planet, gratitude and personal power.  Our voices rang out, on line, across the planet and into the universal Goddess field.

Our wands hold the power of intention, created in high personal and collective vibrational energy.  Below are a few pictures of the Wisdom Wand Talismans we created. 

Below is a video of our closing song, sung by Danielle Kane.

We Moon Mothers will always find a way to gather and celebrate the divine feminine.

If your inclined to create your own wisdom wand here’s a link to an instructional video I created.  Wisdom Wand video

Zoom Circle

As keepers of the ancient tradition of gathering on full moon to honor the divine feminine, we carried on in a fashion that would have amazed our ancestral grandmothers.

We good world citizens, separately gathered together via Zoom (video conferencing).

full moon zoom 4-20

This was our first ever remote gathering.  We dedicated our ceremony to Maat; Egyptian Goddess of balance and justice.

The fear, sadness, and anxiety from the pandemic is permeating humanity and weighing like boulders on our hearts. To walk through this world with a heavy heart is an injustice, but so is this virus.

Last night we engaged in modern ritual to lighten our hearts and bring balance to our lives, even if it was just for a while.

Before our Zoom gathering, each woman created a personal altar dedicated to healing the world.

Then we wrote about all the heaviness in her heart.  Symbolic of letting go, the pages of sorrow were burned.  Then; time to tune into the Zoom meeting.

I wasn’t sure if we should jump right into circle speak or keep with the tradition of opening ceremony.  The wise Moon Mothers chose to begin with a modified opening  ritual.  The familiar words helped me settle in this foreign way of holding circle.  We were miles apart from each other, but I could feel them settle too.

One of the best ways to balance a heavy heart is through laughter.  This always worked well in past circles, when we dedicated our ceremony to Maat.  I was ready for some giggles. When we got to circle speak (joke time) it wasn’t easy to laugh.  A few chuckles but no deep belly laughs.  Shannan stepped up and led a yoga laughing practice.  That did prime the pump to start the laughing flow. Positive stories of planet healing were told and it brought peace and hope to our circle. In closing, Danielle led us in our traditional closing song.

I look forward to easy belly laughs without the aid of wine, although it is 4 20 all month.

Be well.

Cyber Full Moon Ceremony

You’re invited to a Cyber Full Moon Ceremony

Tuesday April 7th 7pm.

Dedicated to Maat, the Egyptian Goddess of balance.

As good world citizens, we are complying with all efforts to stop the virus by not physically gathering in our traditional full moon ceremony.  Instead, I invite you join me in a Zoom call to continue our sisterhood of celebrating the divine feminine and embodying a goddess archetype.

On this full moon I invite you to set up your personal altar with the intention of balance and healing for the world. If possible put a feather and candle on your altar. 

Our intention is to bring balance into our lives by letting go of our burdens and engaging in humor.

Once you have set up your altar, write down the heaviest burdens you carry at this time. Once you’ve written all your worried heart burdens, burn that piece of paper as a symbol of letting the heaviness go.

Please do this personal part of the ceremony, before our zoom call begins at 7pm.

During our cyber circle speak time, we will each share our favorite joke. 

Maat full moon

Maat, Goddess of justice and balance, hails from the Egyptian pantheon. According to mythology she is the gate-keeper who appears at the end ones life. With an ostrich feather in her hair, she stands sturdy and forthright holding a scale to weigh your heart. If your heart is heavier than the feather you must reincarnate as human to learn the lessons of a balanced life. It’s an injustice to walk through your life with a heavy heart.

If you’ve never used Zoom before, it’s super easy! You can log on from your computer or smart phone. You don’t have to join Zoom to join a meeting, but you may have to download a bit of software or an app.

Divine Feminine

There was a time when I would have been accused of being a heretic for my work.  My truest calling is to resurrect the belief in Goddess.  Her many names, and miracles almost forgotten for two thousand years.  The “new” patriarchal belief of the divine, buried her legendary power for centuries. The ancient people got it right; when they observed the births of Spring and conceived the idea that it must be the work of Divine Mother Goddess.  Goddess is the fertile seed from which all new creation springs from. 

Long before the “Lord Father God” belief, humans understood God to be Mother. Have you ever witnessed a miracle? You have if you have ever held a new born baby, witnessed a plant sprout from dirt, or had your breath taken away by art.  Creation is a miracle. Be it a baby, art piece, invention, or a business, to create is divine. 

The concept of ONE supreme spirit is a lot to comprehend. Ancient people divided the “ALL” into comprehendible archetypes giving each a different name and power possession.  The belief of Lord Father God in heaven, separates women from the divine by gender and place.  Ladies, I am telling you that God is Goddess inasmuch as your vagina is as vital as man’s penis.   She is not a holy ghost, that lives in heaven, she is you. She is that part of you that goes out into the world and makes a living.  That part of you that relishes the cool river water and soft grass below your bare feet.  That part of you that creates beauty. That part of you that plants hard dormant seeds knowing that beautiful new life will spring fourth.  That all knowing intuitive part that leads you to circles of women.  Have you ever felt serious and anxious and suddenly broke into laughter? That’s your Goddess self reeling you back into balance.  You are Goddess inasmuch as I am Goddess.  There is only one Divine.  We are all Divine, creating & dormant, loving & fighting, thriving & struggling simultaneously, we are One… Every living being is connected by an invisible thread vibrating at high, medium and low frequencies tethered together as ONE. We are feminine and masculine, Goddess and God, human and divine, separated only by domination.  

Below are some images from our Full Moon Ceremony that was dedicated to Ostara Celtic Goddess of Spring.

We have three Spring Equinox Events coming up, visit EVENTS PAGE for details.  Hope you can join us.

 

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Utopia Greenhouse

“Feels like I am standing in front of a fresh blank canvas with clean brushes and every color of fine paint, inspired to create a new work of art. With a large brush stroke, I begin with indigo, the color of intuition; I paint a circle. In this circle, is a life of ease, creativity, abundance and like minded Utopian Women.  The concept is clear, the smaller details will take shape as I walk through the threshold of this new decade.”

I wrote the above statement in my news letter on New Year’s Day.  Now I have walked through the threshold of 2020 and my vague vision is crystalizing into the reality of  Utopia in the Greenhouse.  Last weekend we held a painting class and Spiral Muse Band concert, both events were fantastical.

Batter of My Life

batter of my life

My Spirt is Young and energetic.

My Soul is ancient and infinite.

Spirit, the performer.

Soul, the witness.

Spirit, happy in the doing.

Soul, content in being. 

Spirit, seeks. 

Soul, knows.

Spirit, creates the painting. 

Soul, inspires the image. 

Sprit stands before the blank canvas with paint brush in hand,

Soul informs the right hue and brush stroke.

Spirit writes and writes so many words.

Soul edits to the essence.

Spirit walks onto the dance floor and begins to move.

Soul becomes one with the music with fluid movements.

Spirit cooks a delicious meal.

Soul delights in the smell and taste.

Spirit is swift.

Soul is compassion.

Spirit says, let’s go on an adventure and create something magnificent.

Soul says, we are warm and content, don’t move, just breath.  

Sprit says, let’s have a party and celebrate. 

Soul says, let’s dive deep and meditate.

Spirit says, the colors of the sunrise are so pretty I’ll get my camera.

Soul says, be still, and marvel.

Many years ago, I gave Spirit too much voice; always creating and seeking satisfaction, rarely knowing contentment. 

Seeking satiation I retreated from the world and gave Soul a stronger voice. In that time of “Being” I experienced too many dreams unrealized.

Spirit and Soul hold the same weight; they sit perfectly balanced on the scale of justice.  One feather breath more from either and alignment tips. 

With stable strength they guide me in living a balanced life.  They reside within my body, providing a life force nutritional batter.

When I feel the oneness of both folded together in perfect consistency life is a piece of cake.

For a New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

By John O’Donohue

2020 New Year

Happy first year of a New Decade.
After a long winter rest, I feel my energy returning. The thought of a new decade feels like I am standing in front of a fresh blank canvas with clean brushes and every color of fine paint, inspired to create a new work of art. With a large brush stroke, I begin with indigo, the color of intuition; I paint a circle. In this circle, is a life of ease, creativity, abundance and like minded Utopian Women.  The concept is clear, the smaller details will take shape as I walk through the threshold of this new decade.

Our first gathering of the new decade will be on full moon, I hope you can join us.

Closing Time

Alone, with hundreds of plants I closed our sacred nursery for the year. In silent ritual I sprinkled tiny grass seeds on the greenhouse lawn giving thanks to the living carpet that has supported so many divine circles this year.  Cutting back the last spent greenery on the hydrangeas and peonies, felt like bathing my babies before putting them to bed. Tucking the wee ones close together to keep them warm and secure from wind and cold I silently said, “time to rest dear little plants.  Thank you for shining so brightly for our guests, you filled our sacred space with oxygen, beauty, and peace.  Your work is done for the year.  Let the limited sun light energy seep into your core and roots to sustain you in this time of rest.”

goddess light

Lightly I stepped outside, closed the outer gate and exhaled deeply as I turned the key to lock.  My work at the Nursery was done for this year.  To tell the truth, being the custodian of that sacred land is a lot of hard physical work and I love it.  Moon Mothers Nursery inspires me to create beauty.  It is a sanctuary for Healing Art teachers to facilitate unique art circles.  It’s home to an elusive garter snake, beautiful red fox and lots of birds.  As I drove home I imagined the animals having a solstice party while the humans are away.

As I write this blog entry I feel a new sense of place, my home.  The place of my comfortable bed, sweet husband and two purring cats.  Like the plants at the nursery I’ll send my energy to my roots as I prepare my home to receive my family and real close friends.  Mindful of the natural slow rhythm of this time of the year, I will rest a lot.

Hope you all do too.

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Gratitude Museum

She lived in a Gratitude Museum

Free from normalness

Nurtured by creativity

Bending and stretching everyday

She heard Grandmother’s emphatic whisper, 

“Its time to expand. Open the unexplored door.”

Boldly she stepped through the threshold

Into a land of creative genius.

Clearly seeing with excellent peripheral vision

Knowing in an instant

A power source, of arousing luminescence and sorcery

Elusive mirage, get closer it moves away

Wielding the power of laser focus

Following creative impulses

Sacred geometry, emerged into old world art.

Landscape of the divine.

Happy Thanksgiving

Vesta, Goddess of the Hearth

The Vestal Virgins were High Priestesses that kept the flame in the temple of Vesta burning perpetually for a thousand years.  Vestal Virgins were real women who officiated sacred ceremony and holiday rituals. They cared for sacred objects, were the keepers of divine wisdom and secrets of the universe.
In an attempt to convert the world to Christianity and erase all Goddess beliefs, Emperor Theodosius destroyed the Temple of Vesta. He may have destroyed Vesta’s Temple but her Spirit is undying and lives on today.
On this November full moon we Moon Mothers gathered in sacred ceremony to kindle the flame of Vesta through ancient ritual. We embody the sacred wisdom of the Vestal Virgins (Priestesses) and gave credence to creating and maintaining a warm home.
The giving and receiving of hand-crafted gifts opened us to universal abundance. In a silent gratitude, labyrinth walk, our energies homogenize in thankfulness. With grace and ease we danced the Celtic Weave, flowing from leader to follower, we never faltered. In circle, each woman shared her warm wisdom and stoked the flame of Vesta.

The rituals from this powerful gathering prepared us for this dark time of the year. It readied us for our loved ones, who are continually drawn to us for comfort and counsel.  Our warm flame may be blazing logs in a fireplace, a candle or a hot cup of tea.  The shape and size of the flame is not important, what matters is that we create and hold a warm space in our home. A simple place of ease, abundance, thankfulness, warmth and wisdom.
“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”
“Home is the place your soul resides.”
“The hearth is the heart of the home”

 

Best wishes to you and your cozy home.  We will not gather for full moon ceremony in December.

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Still Dark

Except for me, The whole world asleep, even the birds.  Still dark sky, my body awake, eyes open, mind fully conscious.  My Maiden mind says, go back to sleep, you love to sleep, it’s not time to wake.  But my Crone body awake and I like it.  Feeling rested, I heed my body’s instincts and rise from my cozy bed, don my short soft robe and walk barefoot outside.  The patio deck cool on my feet awakens me even more.

Father Sun out of town, taking with him all the colors of green, yellow, and baby blue, giving the normally green trees and plants a rest from the spot light.   The world now purple, indigo, magenta and black.  The sky owning the stage. Towering black trees stand guard like bouncers in a night club.  Mother Moon appearing as a crooked little, silver letter C hanging in the distance. She casts just a sliver of light creating subtle shadows and giving the stars a chance to show themselves. Still water in the distance, reflecting this fantastical exhibition.  A trillion star lights snugglng close together making an irradiance fuchsia fog beginning high in the cashmere sky. Stars look like a white ant farm crawling slower than a snails pace to an unknown place below the deep purple horizon.

“Rise and shine” my mother always said when waking me in the morning.  All my life her words have echoed in my mind upon rising to begin my day. My life has changed, I have changed, My circadian rhythm keeps time differently.  As I witness this dark AM Autumn odyssey,  I wonder has this ever happened before?

The Universe silently whispers, Yes, you have just always been to tired and sleepy from your hard working life to wake up and experience the bewitching darkness.

still dark

10 year anniversary

Sunday night was the Moon Mothers ten year anniversary.  I still feel inspired and motivated when preparing for ceremony and know that Divine Feminine Ceremony is relevant and needed in todays world. We began as a nomadic tribe gathering in the forest at the beach and other sacred places. Last year we settled in our new home Emerging Space Greenhouse.  I know that leading women in divine feminine ceremony is my true calling and I will continue this work as long as women keep coming.  This morning I wondered how the Moon Mothers felt about our ceremonies.  

I send out an email and asked; Why do you attend full moon ceremony?  Below are a few of the responses.


I have made new friends.

I have a renewed sense of self.

I am happy.

I have begun painting.

I have started journaling my dreams.

I have tuned into intuition.

I have connected under the full moon with dozens of women with loving hearts and souls.

I have received important messages regarding flow and path.

I now walk with my head held high and light shining bright.

Tried giving henna tattoos. Call me any time, I want to do it more.

Tried blowing a conch. I did not even know what a conch was.

Tried speaking my truth aloud. Still trying. I do not like to talk about the past.

Started a garden. Actually—am addicted to succulents—but that seems like a healthy addiction to me.

Learned about plants—I have a cool plant app on the iPhone that helps ID plants.

Harvested sunflower seeds and created a brand—my son grows sunflowers and harvests and reuses seeds—he created a brand and we have seed packets.

Made a magic wand…and with each wind of the ribbon spoke an affirmation. Wow.

Created a soul collage and watched as it manifested. 

Meditated and met my spirit guide (s).

Meditated and discovered by spirit animals. This was my favorite gathering—it was deeply intense and I could have journeyed a lot more. I went back, jotted down more encounters, and drew pictures.

I am inspired by seeing, hearing, and connecting with the other women. I get a greater sense of self and a sense greater than self. The circle has provided me with many “firsts” and many empowering thoughts to try new and interesting things.

I come for the sisterhood and I love that it flows so beautifully. It helps me reconnect to my divine feminine and with all the beautiful women there who are doing the same thing.

Kellie M


To connect with source, myself, and women

Reminder of who I am, some social time with women I don’t see often, often a surprising reflection of my work/beingness

I like learning about the faces of the goddess, and how we can embody the goddess. I like writing letters, etc., and doing symbolic crafts with my hands.

Danielle K


Linda, Kellie and Danielle I truly appreciate your response to my question. lakshmi

I will continue to gather the women on full moon as my ancestral Grandmothers have done for eons.

With deep gratitude for all the women who heed the call to gather in divine feminine circle I honor your Goddess Spirit.

Sincerely,

Catalyst

Standing steady on the mountain top at dawn.  My gaze fixed on the eastern horizon patently waiting for daybreak. Slowly tracing my breath from my feet to my crown feeling like a chestnut tree deeply rooted in mother earth.

The tiny bright amber-gold-orange light of the rising sun looking like a half dome on the horizon. Feeling my ancestors standing behind me, balancing me and holding me safe in the moment. Every cell in my body alive with creative impulses I stood still, drinking in the moment.  Sun rising into a full blinding orb perched just above the horizon too bright, my gaze turns upward.  It’s rays shining on clouds appearing like cotton candy dipped in honey hanging in a sparkling ocean blue sky, of slow shifting hues. The infinite possibilities of this auspicious day filling me with subtle joy. The core of my being strong with knowledge of other worlds, I dare not move.

I was witnessing sunrise of the Autumnal Equinox, the moment of planetary balance between light and dark. This natural annual event washed my heart back to infantile innocence. 

The kaleidoscope of color presented by the rising sun gradually turned to a pale white-blue sky.  Silently I stood on the mountain top, tongue resting at the roof of my mouth, lips gently touching, truly satiated in this moment.

Then the brightness of this special new day too much for my eyes.  I turned my face towards the silent valley.

Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, the sound of wings beckoned my attention.  There, at my left shoulder was a pure white dove.  She began a soft Coo-coo  Coo-coo Coo-coo song.  Enthralled I had to join her song, Coo-coo Coo-coo Coo-coo.  Peace, peace, peace.

In that moment the mystery of my life purpose was revealed.

I am merely a catalyst.
