New Year Lunar Eclipse Meditation and Ritual

We honour, respect and give our thanks to the spirits and guardians of this place, where we will carry out this New Year Lunar Eclipse ceremony of meditation and ritual, as well as its traditional custodians past, present and future. The January 2020 full moon is in the sign of Cancer, at the start of a new year and a new decade. Not only is it a full moon but also a lunar eclipse, which occurs when the earth lies between the moon and the sun blocking the moon from reflecting the sun’s light. It is a penumbrial lunar eclipse on this occasion which means there is not a perfect line up of the planets (stars) and only part of the moon’s bright orb will be shadowed. The moon loves being in Cancer as the ruling planet of this sign, and in 2019 there was not actually a full moon in Cancer. This, combined with the extra energy of the eclipse, will result in a very potent lunar energy available to us. Cancer is a sensitive water sign and rules emotion, especially the heart, as well as family relationships. The releasing energy of the full moon should mean that working with it will help to heal hearts and balance family and home dynamics.  Cancer also governs self care so it is the perfect time to set intentions around looking after

Autumn Equinox – release, integrate and manifest

The third week in multi-coloured March – filled with weather of all varieties (here in Victoria at least!), the last of the summer fruits and the first of the winter ones – brings us a super special time to celebrate both the Full Moon (in Libra this month) and the Autumn Equinox.  Their energies are very complementary supporting release and balance. Bring the Yin back in Autumn is the time of year where we can take the hint from the leaves on the trees and really start to let go of the things that have become hard and dry and no longer nourish us.  The leaves that were green – the beating heart of the tree, allowing the plant to feed itself – are changing. Their colours are turning orange and red and reminding us that we need to begin to ground again, to return to the energies of our sacral and root chakras, to reconnect with the earth – to slow and turn inwards again, accessing our own Yin energy once more after the firey heat and outward focussed Yang energy of summer. Traditionally Autumn is a time to harvest and celebrate the glorious gifts we are receiving but at this time we also need to acknowledge that the soil, the earth that provides our food, now needs to rest. The warmth of summer is gently nestling behind us and
