Full Pink Moon

Full Pink Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Pink Moon at 7* Scorpio will culminate April 26, 2021 8:33pm pdt/ 11:33pm edt (almanac). This enchanting super moon is a time to make plans for deepening current relationships and friendships. We see clearly who we grant access into our lives, and if you’ve had problems you will know how to fix them. If you have been floundering you might go into deep meditation now and close the door to any falsehoods or hardships. 

You won’t be throwing everything away but you’ll be spring cleaning and not fooling yourself on what you need or want. No more insecurities. There are no longer people or obstacles holding you back. Whatever has come to a breaking point will either snap apart or start a pathway of repairs. You’ve been gaining inner strength for sometime and now you decide to be the best you can be.

Life is about creating good camaraderie with the fellow people we hold close. This is a time of reigniting your passion. If you weren’t paying attention before, you are now. You are in a time of revealing truths and unveiling your deepest longing. 

Your nightmares will become daydreams, as you repair your mindset and get ready to look at life fairly and squarely. Knowing if you make decisions your life will come alive again. Isn’t it time you took matters in your own hands and you really looked forward to a new dawn…

Full Worm Moon

Full Worm Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Worm Moon (Native American) at 8* Libra will culminate, March 28, 2021 11:48 am pacific | 2:48 pm eastern (Farmers Almanac).

Moon phase details (mooninfo) for Sunday, March 28, 2021. • Moon Phase: Full Moon – 18:50 UTC ↓. • Illumination: 100%. • Moon Age: 14.71 days. • Moon Angle: 0.54. • Moon Distance: 367,787.102 km. • Moonset: 07:07:39. • Moonrise: 19:04:17.

This Libra Full Moon is a Super Moon which means it is closer to the earth so it appears brighter. The theme of this moon to really look deeply into yourself and decide to make your life more meaningful and to dust yourself off and appear shiny. Making intellectual choices over emotional ones.

You’re to look at the more meaningful aspects of life with respect. Instead of casting any doubt, you are to think for a moment to what is innately good in the world, it can be a simple thought such as the world is covered in flowers. Peace can permeate your mind with self-worth. 

It’s the human condition to self sabotage. Some more than others; but it’s not about what others do, it’s about what you do. How you wrangle your mind. How you face your challenges. How you create your story. Life isn’t a riddle unless we allow it. We have to remind ourselves every day to think clearly and concisely. Hold our tongues and our judgements and concentrate on our healthy well being instead. 

Humans are on reset: what do we do and how do we go forward. We all have a tool set and competence. Maybe you are missing pieces of your success formula, your health regime, deep wisdom, extra knowledge or your love techniques. 

Creating a Good Life:

  1. Be Authentic
  2. Love Yourself
  3. Acceptance
  4. Create a beautiful future vision

Full Beaver Moon

Full Beaver Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Beaver Moon (Native American) at 8* Gemini  will culminate, November 30, 2020 1:30am PST/4:30am EST (Farmers Almanac). It is also a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. When we have an eclipse, it’s time to change or let go of something holding us back. Take time to meditate on what you’d like unblocked or cleaned up in your life as it brings something exciting or illuminating to each of us. 

This Full Beaver Moon is about Communicating on a deeper level. What has been hidden from you will come to light. Something you might have held back will be discussed or revealed. How do you rate yourself as a communicator. Do you have many secrets. What if there are secrets revealed to you. How do you react. Emotionally we aren’t always in touch with how we communicate and if it can be improved upon. 

Communication Tips:

There are simple ways to develop how to speak when we want to be heard. We don’t always convey the most important topics to each other and being a good communicator takes effort. Being able to articulate a concept, solution or decision isn’t always easy. Knowing how to get our point across especially when someone doesn’t see things quite the same as you do can be frustrating. It’s not about dominating a conversation. It’s better to have quality speaking rather than quantity chit-chat. At times there is no way around having a lot of chatter with each other. Humans like the sound of each other, but are they listening? Are you listening? 

When we take the time to listen, we can learn to do things correctly in our lives. From book learning to listening to elders and skilled authorities in any subject. If we listen intently enough, we progress with contributing to our security and well-being. We don’t always get an answer, but we can grow emotionally, intellectually and learn how to take care of ourselves and others. It’s always important to know how to listen and speak when we want to be successful.

Being a leader and doing significant work are important, but to be effective we need to know how to put into practice our communication skills. 

1. Inner Knowing

What are you interested in? Are you building your self-esteem and confidence. What are your personal skills that you’ve developed. They don’t need to be academic or athletic skills, they can be being a good friend, mother, father or liking pets.

2. Sincerity

Connect with others when they are speaking. Your mind takes breathes, so you don’t always hear everything someone is saying to you. It’s easier in life if you are kind and leave everyone with a smile or appreciation.

3. Consistency 

We don’t do any favors to anyone if we can’t keep our word, pull our weight and practice what we preach. Emotional Consistency is a key ingredient to lasting happiness. Integrity to your family and those you love are important.

4. Compromise

Knowing how to share.

5. Listening

Building a bond

6. Be Polite

Everyone deserves respect. 

7. Ask & Receive

Effectively ask questions. The Answers might not always be from the person you asked but if we are patient the answer will not elude us.

8. Sharing

When we help and support others. Others help and support us.

9. Teaching

When we contribute what we know, we allow others to create a way to take care of themselves. Everyone interprets their way of doing things. 

10. Do not interrupt

Listen more than talk

11. Ask questions 

Be interested about others and our world

 12. Curiosity

Don’t lose your curiosity, stimulate your mind by learning new things. Its considered one of the key things to staying youthful.

(5 people and why)

_____ You are given advice and wise choices everyday. But are you listening? Do you eat your greens to promote your Lifeforce, do you meditate and rest, do you exercise and eat enough to promote your inner fuel to give you the impetus to be strong. Do you study what interests you, do you work at a job you like, are you employed by fair and decent people, are your friends constructive or destructive in your life… the list goes on and on. Choices.

What is our recourse. Generally everyone is afraid of making mistakes, but do we make the best selections when we weigh all our options? Where is there opportunity and sometimes with risk, or possibilities of peace. It’s what we decide we’re willing to develop through creating our own reality.  We can pinpoint lucidity or go round and round in confusion. Never knowing what we want or making a commitment.  We could weigh ourselves down or make the decision of what we want.

Let Go of Past Blocks

There it was, the image of a young woman hung from the rafters. I knew it was a “witch hanging”, there were layers of petticoats and a dress with a white apron. A sweet young maiden, not a witch at all, she was a nurse and made medicines. Rigor mortis had set in and the feet were purple-black. I didn’t look at the face, I just saw the back of her. Her light brown hair cascading down her lifeless body. 

I was in a Reiki session with Liz Young. I’d asked to “clear any lingering blocks from this life or past lives”.  Liz lays her hands on me, and all of a sudden it’s like she’s using a strong commercial vaccum suction. I start seeing all these visions of men and women in precarious situations. I remind myself to get rid of the cellular residue of however I’m associated with all of it. The energy and odd items are floating off of me, like space debris and shooting past Liz. I’m in pain and wanting to cry out at times. But I keep telling myself “don’t scare Lizzie”. 

I don’t stay with the hanging image, I don’t connect with the place or her name. I just go to the next inner movie, the next set of images and suffering that needs to be cleared. For me I realize it’s my need to release physical pain. I see these stoic, brave and courageous faces of myself in other incarnations, I may have found myself at wrong places and undesirable times, but my valor seems to be a running theme. 

We’ve been having to deal with times of Covid. Every one in the world is changing their way of doing life and love. I listen to Hypnosis Mp3s every day, as a Hypnotherapist I know how important it is to keep our minds in a clear and progressive state. I’ve trained Liz as a hypnotist, and now I get to experience her Reiki session. I’m going to call her “Hoover Liz” from now on. 

 Don’t we all just want the blocks and issues to be sucked away into the ethers! Liz moves to a next area on my body, “touch me, don’t touch me… I steel myself to be ready”. 

Then I feel someone attached to me, my ex-husband Dick Sutphen has been dead for a month, he loves my work. We worked together for 32 years. He’s nestled by me, I tell “Hoover Liz” I need to gently extract Dick. He’s asking to work with me, but he needs to do his heavenly process and I tell him, I’m sure we’ll be connected in the same “soul tribe” on the other side. You still have a lot of work to do. Visit me and our children in our dreamstates. 

The next day I feel really refreshed. Thank You Liz.

-Can you clearly say this is what I do now and I like it or I’d like to see a change:

What are you doing now

What job will you have next year

What job will you have in 5 years

What job will you have in 10 years

Do you stay with a career

Do you change careers often

Do you like jobs

Do you like responsibility

Do you like to be a boss

Are you a good boss

Are you a good employee

What makes you happy

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up

What is your career

What is your self confidence

What is your earning potential

What is your verve for life

Are you a winner

Are you sometimes winning

Are you winning yet losing

Are you losing but close to winning

What could make you win

What could make you content

—-Change yourself first. The whole world only can see you with their eyes. Until they hear your voice, they can listen with their ears. When you show your concern or understanding, they can can feel your good intentions. Your reality is one that you create. If you can not find peace, there can be no peace. If you can’t find love, there will not be love. If you can’t find happiness, there won’t be happiness. These are things you find…deep within you. Your heart shines, your mind is ready, your sentiments hold them in check. You are your own whole world. You are perfect in the eyes of God. 

The flame within your soul is to be reignited, your verve, your ideas, talents, solutions and decisions are to be seen. Whatever is dormant is now active.

*How to become powerful: You must have role models to emulate, you don’t always have to be liked but you must fulfill what people need. You will have to have a “Strategy and Skill”. You will keep strategizing, knowing how to guide yourselves and others into growth and abundance. Be careful as you can end up working in boring jobs for many years and gain no real power or prestige. You can be wanting recognition. But there is only one thing to remember and again plan for, power has “an end”. You will be usurped by the younger generation or go out of vogue in some way. If you can be fair and aboveboard, you’ll gain respect along with money. You can keep going forward, having a great life, well earned and be treated nicely in old age.

*Using your Intuition: Using your intuition and psychic ability to move forward. Feeling good about the decisions you make. Knowing when wrong feelings happen they can indicate going in a wrong direction.

*When meditating, remember you’re going to go past your mind and it’s set ideas, and proceeding toward the heart, taking it deeper, releasing false sentiments and just float in your divinity, going deeper and deeper to your very essence. Reaching into the core of your being. Shift into knowing you will begin to float in calmness as the eclipse takes away anxiety and confusion, replaced is gifts of knowledge and wisdom, quality of time and being one with your adventure on earth.

—– “Challenge yourself everyday to do better and be better. Remember, growth starts with a decision to move beyond your present circumstances. -Robert Tew

Beltaine

Beltaine

by Tara Sutphen

Beltaine is the “Celebration of the Light”,the light time of the year. The dark time being remembered by Samhain. May 1 is the day in the middle of the spring and the summer equinox’ (15*Taurus). May Day is the time for love and the happiness of summer on it’s way.

Beltane | Beltaine is a celebration of the union of souls, The union of minds, and the union of bodies. The earth mother calls her progeny to replenish the earth. Flowers decorate hair and everywhere. Maypole ribbon dances, with two circles interweaving around a decorated tree or pole, clockwise dance circles. Bonfires or candles to spark the sacred fire of union and fertility.

Druids and Pagans raised the Beltaine fires on hilltops on May Eve, the fires were lit in order to bring the sun’s light down to earth. Earth awakening from it’s long winter nap and the flowers are in bloom and frolicking abounds. Joy alights your body, mind, and spirit, the colors become brighter, you see the best in everyone, casting away all worries and doubts you collected over the winter time.All nightmares become daydreams of love, hope and harmony.

Beltaine or Beltane is an anglicization of the Irish “Bealtaine” or the Scottish “Bealtuinn.” — “bel,”brilliant”, “tene” “fire”

Things to do on Beltaine alone or with a group

Create a Beltaine circle or group

Buy or Pick flowers

potluck

maywine (alcoholic or non alcoholic)

Candles, Fireplace, Bonfire — Lighting a fire with a blessing

May pole (you can use a tree if you don’t have a pole) garnish w. greenery and flowers – tie long ribbon

If you create a May pole, make lots of wishes while you walk clockwise into your future, and at the end of wrapping the ribbon say a blessing for yourself and end with “to love and be loved, So it is”. If the tree/pole ribbons pretty and sturdy enough you could leave until Samhain.

Some of the questions that you can ask your friends or family are:

What were the highlights in your winter? Everyone must come up with at least one if not several highlights. What are the dreams to enliven your spring and summer? Every one should convey their intentions for the summer.
