MOON

An Autumn Playlist

When we change from summer to fall, I love to change just about everything in my home and life, including the music I listen to.

I created an Autumn Playlist last year to listen to under the Full Harvest Moon and my whole family loved listening to it all season.

It is also perfect for just chilling out, taking a bath, gathering with friends, or spending time at your altar. Enjoy!

New Moon In Taurus Ritual

Today is a powerful new moon in Taurus.

What seeds do you want to plant?

What money goals do you have for the next 6 months?

Try this New Moon In Taurus Ritual:

Write it down on a piece of paper.

Now hold that in your hand and imagine energy coming up from the earth and filling your body. 

Imagine that energy flowing out of your hands and into the paper, then say, “Earth Energy/Mother Earth, can you please infuse my goal with your grounded and healing energy?”

Visualizing your goals coming true.

Get into the energy of how it would feel.

Then either bury it in a plant or garden or place it under your current favorite stone (pyrite is my favorite for this).

Then call on the Divine in a way that feels good and say, “Can you please support and guide me as I surrender my desire to your care? Thank you./So be it./Amen.”

Taurus is an earth sign associated with money.

Have fun tapping into this powerful energy.

Then go do something that future version of you would do.

Start to live from that energy today.

Let go of how it is going to work out.

Do things that will help you be in s state of trusting that the right people and opportunities will show up and that you are worthy of your desires.

I look forward to manifesting our money goals together!

p.s. I have been working with the energy of money a lot lately and a big thing I am learning is to be intimate with your money. 

It is important to know the money coming in and going out and where it is coming from and where it is going. 

It had become apparent that I stopped doing this and now that I am tracking everything closely, I am making the more money.

Love this for me and I want it for you too!

Remember, what you focus on grows.

October Vibrations

Welcome to October! I am trying something new that I hope you will love. Curl up with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and get into the vibrations of October.

October At-A-Glance:

  • October Quote
  • October Pallete
  • October 5th: New Online Course Launches!
  • Waxing Moon Activity: Shift Your Altar To Halloween + Autumn
  • Dance Under the Full Moon on October 9th!
  • October 17: Tend To Your Vibration Online Course Starts!
  • Waning Moon Ritual – Rituals for your Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Broom
  • October 25th is a New Moon in Scorpio
  • October 31st is Halloween!
  • Embrace The Mystery

While the above quote doesn’t quite ring true here in Arizona, I still love this time of year. Allowing ourselves to live seasonally helps get us into the flow of life. When we allow things to end, it creates space for new beginnings. I hope you keep reading to discover fun ways to get into the energy and vibration of October. Anytime you are feeling a little lost, read that quote above again, go spend time in nature, plan an adventure and allow yourself to believe in miracles!

October Palette

Don’t you just love to change your wardrobe and decor once fall arrives? Some of my favorite colors this time of year are Rust, Olive Green, Black, and Mustard Yellow.

Take a look at what you have for this fall and be open to bringing in and embodying the energy associated with the colors. Notice how the colors make you feel. Choose the ones that make you feel really, really, good. You can find the energy of more colors in my book, Tend To Your Vibration, or look at the colors you have and notice how they make you feel. Black might make you feel confident, Purple might make you feel witchy, and Orange might make you feel playful.

I watch Annie Hall every autumn and love the blacks, olive greens, greys, and khaki colors (and, of course, plaid!) that Diane Keaton and Carol Kane wear. I just got these olive green pants and am on the lookout for the perfect black ballet top and soft v-neck grey sweater. Do you have favorite movies to watch this time of year?

October 5th: New Online Course Launches!

Are you ready to get unstuck and into the flow of life? I am so excited to share that on Wednesday, October 5th the doors open to my new online course, Tend To Your Vibration. Woohoo! This is the perfect time of year to tune inwards and learn how to use nature, breath, thoughts, imagination, and energy to increase your confidence and live with more joy and ease.

My hope is for you to complete the course vibrating at a higher level, feeling amazing, being a magnet for your desires, and empowered with a toolbox full of fun, magical practices to handle the ups and downs of life and create a life you love.

This one-of-a-kind program will run from October 17th until November 17th. More details coming to your inbox on the 5th!

Waxing Moon Activity: Shift Your Altar To Halloween + Autumn:

The moon is in the waxing phase until the full moon on the 9th. So this is the perfect time to gather some Halloween decorations and autumn-related supplies to place on your altar. If you like, you can clear off your whole altar and start fresh. Otherwise, move your altar items around to accommodate your autumn-themed pieces.

Some examples would be:

  • Changing the candles to orange, black, or purple.
  • Adding small pumpkins and gourds or jack-o-lanterns.
  • Placing crystals that are orange and black.
  • Adding scented candles or grounding essential oils to your diffuser like Cedarwood or Pumpkin Spice.
  • Burning loose incense like Mugwort.
  • Pulling tarot or oracle cards related to the season to display and meditate on.

Have fun with this!

You want this to be a place you will sit in front of and feel connected to the season.

Dance Under the Full Moon on October 9th!

One of my favorite things to do on the full moon is dancing in its silvery light. I created an Autumn Playlist so I can do just that. It is also perfect for just chilling out, taking a bath, gathering with friends, or spending time at your altar. Enjoy!

I hope you join me! More details and special pricing coming your way on October 5th!

Waning Moon Ritual – Rituals for your Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Broom

Do you buy cinnamon brooms this time each year? One of the most popular posts on my website is about creating rituals with the ones I usually get at Trader Joe’s. I just saw they have them at Sprouts too. I love putting the large one outside and the mini one in the kitchen.

The moon is waning from after the full moon until the next new moon on the 25th. Since the waning moon is all about releasing it is the perfect time to sweep some negative energy out of your home. Find fun ways to do this here: RITUALS FOR YOUR TRADER JOE’S CINNAMON BROOM.

October 25th is a New Moon in Scorpio

Tuesday, October 25th is a new moon in Scorpio which is a Water sign that is often associated with intensity, magnetism, mystery, shadow-side, loyalty, sexiness, possessiveness, power, and bravery.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life. Check it out here: Scorpio New Moon Card Spread & Ritual

If tarot or oracle cards are not your thing, then try this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

October 31st is Halloween!

Do you know the origin of the jack-o’-lantern? The History Channel shares How Jack O’Lanterns Originated in Irish Myth, “In Ireland and Scotland, people began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them into windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits.”

I love the idea of putting out jack-o’-lanterns with the intention of protecting your home from negative energy.

Embrace The Mystery

I always feel like this time of year invites us to embrace the mystery that is life. The more we learn, the more we are reminded of much we don’t know. This feeling can be unsettling and that is why I am inviting you to embrace the mystery, dance with the mystery, surrender to the mystery, play with the mystery, and enter into the mystery.

If all of the rituals and suggestions above seem overwhelming, then maybe you are being called to slow down this month. Simply spend time noticing the change of seasons and be gentle with yourself.

Feel free to pick and choose how you want to engage in the vibrations of October. Be open to opportunities that show up in your life to deepen your connection to this season and to yourself.

When it comes to practicing your spirituality, I encourage you to listen to your intuition. In addition to everything above, I love finding things my Irish ancestors might have done seasonally and bringing them into my life. I was also raised Catholic and enjoy connecting with the saints, like getting our pug, Leo, blessed in honor of St. Francis of Assisi at the beginning of October.

I believe our practices will always look different. I truly enjoy sharing what has worked for me in hopes that it helps you create a more loving relationship with yourself and the world around you. You deserve it.

I used to worry about how people would judge my spiritual practice. I worried that some would judge that I even have one. I worried that others would judge that it is not inline enough with a specific religion or idealogy.

The concept of embracing the mystery has allowed me to not worry about what others think anymore in regards to my spirituality and its been a beautiful gift to myself.

I hope everything I shared this month helps you embrace the mystery that is life and connects you with a deeper sense of self.

Embrace the mystery. All the mess, all the magic, and everything in between.
