Full Cold Moon

Full Cold Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Cold Moon (Native American) at 16* Gemini will culminate, December 7, 2022 8:08pm PST/11:08pm EST (Farmers Almanac). 

Even when your temper could flare, there seems to be something more illuminating and charming going on.  The Moon is asking you to once again find your center and create passion and connectedness. Open your eyes and take in all the good and feel yourself shining bright and/or even glistening. No need to be in deep chaos or depression, especially for things that no longer serve you. The past is put to rest as you burn through any left over frustration or self pity. You are to recapture the essence of your soul goals. While dusting yourself off and breathing in some fresh air, you are now rebalancing your intensity to create new passion, new undertakings, new plans, new hopes and new dreams.  Taking life seriously again for inner satiation. Looking at the redeeming qualities of everything. You no longer need to process the why’s; after all, you’re now getting ready to leave unfinished business and whatever else you accrued… behind. 

You’ve been pondering your life lessons, and sometimes you weren’t communicating. But you’re feeling the surge to purge, you’ve finally started talking and researching where you can evolve and change. Creating more money or a satisfactory life. All you needed to do is reset your mind. Easy you used to say, but what takes us so long. Maybe you need to know how you can tap more deeply into yourself. 

Here’s a list to help steer us toward inner wisdom. 

  1. Are your Values out of sync –

There are about 50 values but 5 core values:

  • Love
  • Peace 
  • Truth
  • Respect
  • Self-control
  1. What is your philosophy of life:

Your philosophy would be your inner wisdom and conduct

  1. What are your desires, what do you really want:

Do you harbor secret desires, what are they?

  1. What are your fears:

What are you afraid might happen, good or bad.

  1. Who in your life, matters 

Who is important to you in the past and present

Everyone knows what’s wrong to do…bad habits, addictions, procrastination or rebelliousness. Bad tempers or isolation, release misfortune and start by being resourceful, capable and enterprising. Learning to listen again. Drinking plenty of water, and meditate. Resonating with the earth and expecting the very best instead of the very worst.

Write down how you’d like to change. 

———-Are you feeling your very best? How’s your health at this time. Are you talking about it, take time to list what you need to do to make yourself feel emotionally better and physically better. Don’t get stuck in a loop or old ways of thinking. What hasn’t been working, truly is a big sign and it’s time to listen and learn again.  

The first step is your mind is in synch with your conversations that match your actions. When you succeed to align this, you will notice your life works in miraculous ways. You must trust the process, no matter if your life is moving as slow as a turtle or as fast as a hare. It’s our present moment that counts and how you conduct yourself each and every moment. It’s important, Make an effort to encourage and inspire others. Encouragement is useful. Reassuring another person of the effort they make, not only makes them feel validated but it also makes you feel satisfied.

—— “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” —Woodrow Wilson

Body Shame & Fitness

Transformation with Tara

Fridays 9am

Tara Sutphen CHT & Jason D McKean CHT will interview Kayla Van Egdom. She is a health coach, energy healer, author, and podcast hostess.

She is on a mission to help liberate women everywhere from food prison

and body shame.

Kayla’s struggle with weight and binge eating started when she was

seven years old. She spent two decades trying to fix her weight and

food issues by treating herself like a problem that needed to be

solved. She even became a personal trainer, thinking that would be the

solution.

The true solution was doing the deep inner work and choosing to use

her challenges with body image and emotional eating as a catalyst for

deep, personal transformation. She has worked with hundreds of clients

over the last seven years and has helped women heal their relationship

with food through her coaching and signature programs.

Fall Equinox

Fall Equinox – Mabon By Tara Sutphen

Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 20/21/22 September 22, 2022 (Almanac) Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees.

Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth. Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia.

The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year. At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection. Symbolism of Mabon: – Second Harvest, the Mysteries, Equality and Balance.

Symbols of Mabon: – Wine, gourds, pine cones, acorns, grains, corn, apples, pomegranates, vines such as ivy, dried seeds, and horns of plenty.

Herbs of Mabon: – Acorn, benzoin, ferns, grains, honeysuckle, marigold, milkweed, myrrh, passionflower, rose, sage, solomon’s seal, tobacco, thistle, and vegetables.

Incense of Mabon: – Autumn Blend-benzoin, myrrh, and sage.

Colors of Mabon: – Red, orange, russet, maroon, brown, and gold.

Stones of Mabon: – Sapphire, lapis lazuli, and yellow agates.

Activities of Mabon: – Making wine, gathering dried herbs, plants, seeds and seed pods, walking in the woods, scattering offerings in harvested fields, offering a ritual pouring to loved ones —Flowers and trees, adorning burial sites with leaves, acorns, and pine cones to honor those who have passed over.

Spellworkings of Mabon: – Protection, prosperity, security, and self-confidence. Also those of harmony and balance.

Deities of Mabon: – Goddesses-Modron, Morgan, Epona, Persephone, Pamona and the Muses. Gods-Mabon, Thoth, Thor, Hermes, and The Green Man. Mabon is considered a time of the Mysteries. It is a time to honor Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests, whether they be from toiling in our gardens, working at our jobs, raising our families, or just coping with the hussle-bussle of everyday life. May your Mabon be memorable, and your hearts and spirits be filled to overflowing!
