October New Super Moon Magical Reading

New Moon Card Reading, this is a good one and goes with the New Moon for sure.


The South Node, like the North Node, is a karmic point, but it is opposite to the North Node and relates to the past, perhaps even to past lives. Whatever you are going through and whatever you’re asking about, there’s a chance that age-old programming and conditioning is stopping you from achieving all that you might. Do you feel stuck in something? This card will often come as a sign that the situation or relationship you are asking about has somehow become suffocating, even toxic. It suggests that someone (you, even) needs to be released, that there’s some kind of addiction going on or an unhealthy attachment that needs to be sorted out. One thing is for sure – when you get this card you’re being challenged to make some changes, even if staying where you are feels easier and safer.

Attune to the Moon

I release the past.

Additional meanings for this card

• A relationship is karmic and has played out across many lifetimes. 

• Your attraction to someone may be verging on the obsessive. 

• Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should.

The teaching

The South Node is where the Moon crosses the ecliptic going south. On the horoscope chart it shows us what we are likely to become obsessed with, but which will probably do us little or no good. The South Node is the karmic astrological point that reminds us of the well-known phrase, ‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got!’

Harvest Full Moon Ritual October 1, 2020


Harvest Full Moon Ritual October 2020

This Aries Full Moon is known as the "Harvest Moon"... This is the first of two full moons in the month of October, There will be another at the end of the month. 

And in many senses is the final Full Moon of the season (and a culmination of energy) before the season's change and we fully embrace the new.

October is definitely one of the more heated months of the year. It seems that everything 2020 has brought us is coming to a head, and having two Full Moons in the same month indicates a theme of clearing and purging.

With this Full Moon there is an opportunity to harvest and claim all you've learned from and grown through as you boldly embrace the new season.This time also re[presents an opportunity to reap the rewards achieved since the Summer Solstice. Harvest Moon's are also perceived as cleansing. As a result this is an ideal time to release and let it go if there is something you no longer wish to take with you into the new season.

This is a good time to complete projects you have in process...This is also a healing time

Clean your space (inner and outer) and to let go of whatever is holding you back or weighing you down...

As we all now prepare for the next cycles of inner growth and transformation...remember to give yourself time and space. This is not a time to make rash decisions or over react over the small stuff.

Shifting paradigms and stepping forward into the new!

Full Moon Ritual

This ritual is best done between September 28-October 5, 2020

You will need:

·         Aura cleansing tool of choice (Palo Santo Stick, Salt, White Sage)

·         Heatpack or hot towel/compress

·         Bowl of saltwater or seawater 

·         Essential Oils 


·         Hair Mask or DIY Hair Oil (optional)

·         Aries Full Moon Reading

 For the DIY Hair Oil blend any vegetable oil with a few drops of your favorite essential oil– feel free to adjust this however you see fit.


First, Start by cleansing your aura, and then your surroundings and ritual ingredients. Set your intuition for this ritual. (Some examples My intention is to cultivate greater harmony and balance. My intention is to clear my energy and raise my vibration. My intention is to manifest vibrant wellbeing). As you cleanse your aura free to recite the following- 

Under the light of this Full Moon, I ask to be cleansed, to be free, to release all that does not serve me. I ask for a clear mind and a clear heart. I ask all energies that are no longer aligned with my highest good to leave this space now I am now cleansed, my space is now cleansed..  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Next,  Have your bowl of saltwater next to you. Take your hot compress or hot towel and place it over your forehead. Take an essential oil of choice, I recommend Sandalwood, Lavender, Frankincense or any grounding blend. Put a few drops in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and cup and take three deep inhales and exhales. Place gemstone of choice over your heart chakra. Lay down and start your meditation of choice. Sound Meditation below.

Third, After the meditation, remove the compress and gently begin massaging your forehead. Massage your temples in a circular motion. Drum your fingers across your forehead. Run your hands through your hair, massaging your scalp with the hair oil if using. Aim to massage this area for 5-10 minutes.

4th Apply the Hair Mask. While the hair oil is working its magic and your scalp and forehead is nicely massaged, take your pen and paper and write down 5-10 things you would like to release and let go of in your life.  Recommended Essential Oils, Rosemary and Lavender, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus, and

Frankincense and Lavender. Enjoy!

Fifth.  Hold what you have written in both hands and recite the following slowly and with meaning– 

“I release the fears of yesterday and any obstacles that are holding me back. I forgive and let go of the past and no longer carry it with me.. I wash away my fears and replace them with the wisdom of my higher self."

6. Take your paper and begin ripping it into shreds. Once it’s all in little pieces place it into the bowl of salt water. Leave it there overnight and discard in the morning.

If you were using a hair mask, please follow the package directions. For the DIY mask, feel free to leave it in on for as long as comfortable.

Last, Follow up with daily meditations and oracle card readings.

Angel Card Reading for this Full Moon.

Fourth of July Recipes

It is tough this year with all that is going on to think about fun BBQ, fire works, celebration, good food and being with family and friends. It is hard to social distance during holiday's, birthdays and funerals. Everyone has different opinions, all I can say is be smart, be safe and be kind.

There are five of us in our family, we will be celebrating at home without friends and family and hopefully we will see some fireworks.

Here are some great recipes from doTERRA blog I wanted to share. Enjoy, let me know what you made and how you liked it in the comments below, and have a Happy and Safe Fourth of July.

Summer barbeques are a great way to enjoy warm weather with friends and family, but these gatherings often involve trays of unhealthy desserts and sides that can leave you feeling sluggish. If you're looking for a healthier way to incorporate a little sweetness into your summer, these lemon berry chia pudding parfaits are a delicious, satisfying alternative.

The chia seeds and fresh berries in this dish provide an excellent source of nutrition, plus, this recipe contains Lemon oil, which helps naturally aid the body in digestion.* Do yourself, and your taste buds, a favor and make this sweet treat today.

  9. Add vanilla bean pod or extract and mix. Slowly add powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get desired sweetness and thickness.

  11. In two separate plastic bags, add freeze-dried strawberries and blueberries. Using a rolling pin, roll on top of freeze-dried fruit until they are small crumbs.
  12. Add crushed freeze-dried strawberries and blueberries into separate bowls and stir to combine.
  13. In the third bowl of plain frosting, add one drop of Lime essential oil and stir to combine.
