Spring Awaking

At dusk we donned fragrant flowers in our hair.  With fire and breath we ignited dried sage to cleanse our aura in preparation of casting our circle.ostara01

On this first full moon of Spring and second blue moon of this most auspicious year, we resurrected the spirit of Ostara, the Celtic Goddess of Spring.

Like a Mother gently calls her children to rise and shine for the beginning of a new day; Ostara silently calls to all the plants and animals to awaken to the season of re-birth.  Her summons triggers the rooting down and sprouting up of the sleeping seeds, blanketed in earth.

Ostara is the hostess of the Spring jamboree.  She decorates our world with rainbows, scented flowers and waterfalls.  Birds sing her invitation to enjoy her festive bounty.  She serves nourishing carrots, kale, radishes, asparagus, spinach and peas to strengthen our body. She provides more hours of daylight to nourish our soul.  Ostara inspires all living creatures to frolic in jubilee and creativity.

We Moon Mothers, paid homage to Ostara and our personal creative dreams by rhythmically dancing the Fertile Seed ritual.  We heeded her call of new creation by giving birth to poetry and art.

 

Below is a poem by Helen Mary Schaeffer-Stanford, written just after our Fertile Seed dance.

Ostara Dance

Goddesses gathered.
Powerful, complete.
Knowing and wise.
Sisters of the Moon.

Goddesses gathered.
Ancestors join us.
We chant, Hail Mother Earth.
We dance.
We dance the dance that awakens our spirits to Ostara.

Goddesses gathered.
Warriors blessed.
Wild abandon.

Thank you ladies for showing up so brightly on the Blue moon.  Your art & poetry is so magnificently beautiful. You may want to read your writings at the Open Mic Poetry reading,  Arise Gallery,  678 Portola Dr. San Francisco, Sunday, April 29th, 1pm “til 2:30pm.

May you flourish this season. See you next full moon.

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Rippling Wisdom Wand

Nice to know that our Divine feminine, creative work is far-reaching and empowering women in the heartland.

below is an email that I received last week.  Also my response, giving a brief explanation of wisdom wand creations.

Hello Tamara
My name is Kathy and I have recently discovered your wordpress blog and been following. I have come to feel moved to ceremony and ritual and have very much enjoyed your posts and would love to bring something like this to my area (southeast Iowa).
I do have a circle of Sisters that I gather with monthly but they don’t seem to have the call to work with the moon phases for our meet dates as I do, but they do enjoy learning more spiritual and esoteric topics.
I would love to offer the chance to create the wisdom wands such as what you will be creating on the March 1 full moon but I know nothing about them and when I Google them I don’t get what I believe would be anything close to what you and your circle would have in mind for them so I am asking if you would be open to sharing what you can with me about them, the who, what, why etc and then I can get busy manifesting this for my circle.
I do appreciate anything you share with me on this!! Thank you so much!!
Much love,
Kathy

Hello Kathy,

Happy to hear that our Divine feminine circle is rippling to the heartland.

We coined the term “wisdom wand” for last summer’s Solstice gathering.

The premise is to infuse the wand with “I am” statements. Example I am an artist, I am a good mother, I am a gardener, I am an activist and so on and on.
Also I am grateful statements. Example, I am grateful for my husband, I am grateful for my home, I am grateful for my circle of women. Etc.

It’s a creative meditation that will end with the creation of a powerful wand infused with personal “I am” power and gratitude.

I use twigs as a base. We wrap the twigs with strips of fabric, yarn, strands of beads and feathers. Each wrap we say our I am statement and an I am grateful statement.

The ladies take their wisdom wands home and put them on their home altar and use them when divine wisdom light is needed.

Hope this description helps you lead this powerful process.

Here’s a link to your last wisdom wand making circle.

PS. I have created two books based on the Divine feminine Goddess and women’s circle. www.moonmothers.net

Pure Potentiality

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.

Equal World

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
World spins
I surrender
Nurture Self
Wise owl calls

As you navigate this new year, may you create what ever you feel called to create and celebrate the simple moments.

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

Please bring your journal or writing tablet, pen and highlighter.

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.

Spirit~Quest

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.”

                                                                                                  ~John O’Donohue

May you experience the adventure your spirit seeks and manifest a beautiful new year.

Sincerely,

Mystical Tail

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,frog05 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.

Sincerely,

harvestmoon02
