Full Moon Ceremony: 7th May 2020
Interesting read from Astro Butterfly: Astrology of May 2020 – Venus Retrograde and North Node In Gemini
Here we are again guys! This is our second full moon in this circle!!. Since that first full moon in early April. We have welcomed new people to the Whatsapp group and started to share and sync. I have worked with some of you privately and started to test some ideas and discuss some of my plans medium term. As you know, I haven't launched the website yet and I'm taking time to experience and learn. And I'm really grateful to have you all here to support me while I support you through this process.
In the last 3 ceremonies we have added different elements, tried new things while you learn to make your own practice and what feels right for you. So I try to give you enough... but not too much guideline that becomes a chore and you need a printed to do list instead of getting moved by the flow of the moon. And that is all I want for you. And my purpose is to nurture your individuality while being part of a group. So I hope I can transmit that.
Not sure if you recall this, but in our last Full Moon I mentioned that "we work with our male energy in a Full Moon" and with our female energy in a New Moon. So, again, we will be tapping into that gorgeous frequency to help us move mountains if necessary. Because everything is impossible as it is done... so I say... let's fucking do it. Let other worry about if it is possible or not. While they are busy arguing... you can just change the world!.
So for this May or "Flower" Full Moon in Scorpio we are going to work on our senses! Are we ready?!
So, as the logistics of this lockdown or "cocooning" (as the Irish government tried to rebrand without much success) can make logistics a bit challenging. We might need to use our imagination a bit.
So, some of you do a little meditation, follow a process, use a singing bowl, pray and I believe that some of you are becoming quite fond of the Shamanic Drumming Journey from Martin Duffy (Shamanism Ireland) that I have shared with you on our last Full Moon. For that "pre" ceremony phase of the evening I would love to suggest one thing: flowers. If you can get one awesome, if you have one even better, if you don't draw it, paint it, look for a pic in Google search that takes your breath away, use a perfume that might inspire you or make you think of a garden. If you are out of ideas ask in the group, I'm sure we will find a creative solution for you. But no matter what bring a flower in your life tomorrow.
Some believe that when humans saw the first flower in this planet they raised their level of consciousness as a consequence of its beauty. True or not. We can't deny the amazing effects that flowers have in our mood and how their beauty is present in pretty much every ceremony we might think of. Even funerals.
So... here is my suggestion...
1) Get a nice piece of paper and a nice lovely pen and write down the things you need to balance about yourself (consequently in your life). In a way the things that you need to get rid of or moderate (you will burn this paper). Or things you are working on at the moment.
Eg. I give away my need to control, I give away my need to please others, etc...
PS:This is going to make our compost! And remember to write at the end: "for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached".
2) Reflect: We will then reflect with our flower on what we would like to have in our life if "those things" were not there (remember we only work within, and we don't affect other people's life's). Hold or look at your flower. And ask your flower to open up for you new possibilities to see the world, yourself and solutions to your challenges. Ask your flower to enlighten you.
If you have the possibility to be bare foot in the ground awesome, if you can't just set your intention. Touch your flower, smell your flower, feel your flower and use perfume if you are using a picture. While you get your feet stuck on the ground and let yourself open to receive guidance from your flower and Mother Earth.
You might get an answer straight way. Or you might not. It might take few hours or days for your flower to show you it's beauty and bloom. So until the next New Moon ceremony pay attention (keep note on your questions) and pay attention to the flowers in your life, on your laptop, your home, your telly, it doesn't matter... just let your flower speak to you. Keep your flower near you and every day thank her for the gift and beauty she brings to your life and keep her no matter what until the New Moon (don't throw it away and don't use a full plant!).
Remember that these are the things we want to bring into our life as an exchange for the ones that we are giving away (this is part of the art of transmutation):
E.g I bring trust into my life, I bring self love and healthy boundaries, etc...
If you don't have anything in particular you want to bring into your life/you I would like to encourage you to offer that gift to the Universe. Is like donating that energy to be put to good use, to raise the vibration of humanity and this planet.
Let me put it into different words: by working on your challenges and your "shit" and letting go of the things that no longer serve us we create a better world. And that becomes the objective and not the consequence. Does it make sense?
If you decide to write a note down of the things you want to bring into your life, we will keep it until the New Moon in a place we can see every day. If you don't just offered to Mother Earth to be nurtured and safe until the New Moon.
We will burn the paper (as usual) of the things we want to leave behind but we will let the wind to take away the ashes this time. Using both male energy elements for this process. Leave a plate outside a window, or throw it through a balcony (if there is nobody in the street!!)... just be sensible, please! but let the wind do it's thing.
And with this last remark we finish our ceremony.
Hopefully I give you enough options and scenarios to accommodate your personal situation and is simple enough to follow. Remember we will use the flower on our next ceremony... for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached 🙏
I hope you enjoy it. Make it as sensual as possible. Have fun! And ask any questions you might have and make it your own.
Be awesome, embrace all that you are and thanks for taking part in this ceremony.
Love you all,

PS: I’ll be putting your names down in my list to connect us all and use the channel to increase the energy of transmutation. This is not a shopping list: I need a new car, or my boyfriend is an asshole make him nice, or my boss is a bitch just turn her into a teddy bear… no my dears… that’s not how it works! Hahahaha but seriously we are not here to do dark magick, we don’t ask for others only for us and within us. But just in case, I bound the circle for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
If any of you don’t want their name to be added to my list, just shout! Text me, call me, let me know please. Your individuality and empowerment will always be honoured and respected. Always :)
