On this potent Blood-Blue-Super-Full-Moon, we Moon Mothers celebrated the pure potentiality of this new year. Through ancient ritual, remembering splendid moments from the past, creating and sharing, we magnetized ourselves to universal abundance.
Below are a couple of poems created on this night of practical magic.
Holding up flowers in devotion to the tree, to the Goddess, to all Life
This is my season of dreaming, of renewal, restoration
Singing in the temple, so familiar
Tress nature cathedral – sacred is sacred
How can I keep from singing?
I long to return to the holy places where I once served
Thank you for the beauty of nature, the beauty I look for and always see.
May I travel unencumbered.
May I sing your praises everyday.
By Danielle Kane
It is an Equal World.
I open to my best as I rest
In the grass of Heart’s Green Desire
I allow the goddess
Receive the gift
The hummingbird sings
My Voice has wings
Words are like nectar as I write
True calling is heard both day and night
Accept the Mother Mary
Vessel of Pure Potential
Wise owl calls
By Susan Ryals
As you navigate this new year, may you create what ever you feel called to create and celebrate the simple moments.
P.S. Thank you Erica Crawford for the video.
Soul, finds bliss in the security and comfort of home, and peace in the quiet of solitude and rest. Spirit, seeks adventure, new experiences, creativity, and human connection. On this day we soothed our soul in the comfort and beauty of Shelldance’s greenhouse. We called upon our Spirit to show her desires. By combing through hundreds of images and keeping the ones that sparked our spirit, we created our Spirit~Quest collage. Some of the images I placed on my collage held obvious meaning and some felt powerful, but were vague in meaning. I trust the meanings will become clear as I follow my path of seeking, creating and enjoying beauty.
Part of deliberate manifesting is to have a witness to your dreams and desires. Collectively we held the energy, as each woman shared her Spirit~Quest. Then we sent the energy out into the universe through our hands by way of applause.
“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.”
May you experience the adventure your spirit seeks and manifest a beautiful new year.
Blue Moon Ceremony
Wednesday January 31st, 5pm

On this first BLUE Moon of 2018
We will dedicate our circle to our Pure Potentiality
and our clairvoyant mind that speaks via imagery and poetry.
Also 2017 Remembering our Circles, slideshow
In January and March of 1999, we had a situation which only takes place about four times a century: two Blue Moons occurring in the same year. The last time this happened was in January and April of 1961 and it is happening again this year. 2018 is going to be a very auspicious year.
Direction to 337 Mirada Art Studio Half Moon Bay

I was born in murky water. My little tail propelled me through my liquid world. I just moved with the flow of the current. I knew of no other world and was a happy pollywog in my little pond. Jagged quick movements were impossible in my water home. It never occurred to me to move any faster or slower than the prevailing current of my sublime liquid world.
Then one day, without intention, I began to change. My tail loosened and fell off, and I simultaneously sprouted legs. It became impossible to breathe. I was suffocating! Instinctively I ascended to the surface. Projected my head out of the water and took the first inhaling breath in my new world. Without thought or planning, my new legs leaped me out of my little pond. With excellent peripheral vision I could see all around me. I knew that I would never be the same. I had metamorphosed into a new being.
I kind of miss my tail, it helped me swim along blissfully, but I am inspired by my new legs. I can leap over most obstacles; With suction cup feet I can climb over vertical barrier. Although time has changed me into a new being, I stay close to the place I was spawned…
I feel the energy of my frog totem when I am in my garden, think of my younger years or faced with an insurmountable problem.
On this last full moon of 2017, we Moon Mothers, gathered to discover or remember our guiding animal spirits. In honor of Saraswati, each of us poetically expressed the essence of our personal animal totem.

May your untamed animal spirit inspire your dreams into courageous action.
