Hello Dear MoonLight!!
How are you holding up?? More shut downs can lead to things such as depression, anxiety and worry!! One tip I can offer is that... what we focus on will be our reality!! Don't get too caught up in the restrictions, instead.... look for things that you can do that make you happy!!
Go for a walk in nature, dance, draw, paint, sing, learn a new skill, exercise, yoga, meditation, play a musical instrumnment. There are so many options of things you CAN do!
During times like this, it's also super important to find what you are thankful and grateful for!!
When we focus on being grateful, we have more positive things come our way. It's like you become this massive magnet and you start to attract the things in your life your really wanting!
Give it a try!! You'll be amazed at how things come together for you! Our state of mind is where our true power is! How you react and act in each situation dictates what follows.
Relocating to Arizona
If you checked your inbox back in the beginning of November you got my email called "Time for Change."
In that email I explained that it was time for a change for my family and I !!
We are currently in the process of moving out of California to Arizona!!
We should start to plant our roots there by mid-December and we are all very excited and look forward to this next chapter in our lives!
Due to our relocating... my services will temporarily be unavailable. I really appreciate everyone
for their understanding during this time.
Please do keep an eye out for more emails to come and specials deals once I'm back in full swing again!!
This is not a good bye... it's a see you again soon!!
If you are ever in AZ, I'd love to see you!!
The amazing thing about this timeline is the ability to stay connected!!
I will still be offering my services online for you!
I would imagine by Feb. 2021 I will be back to offering my services.
The online services I offer are as follows:
Distant Crystal Reiki Healing
So do please keep me in mind in the beginning of the new year if you are interested in any of the above.
I also still have family out here in California, so from time to time it's very highly possible I will be doing a special guest Sound Bath session at some point.
If you haven't already subscribed to my site, then I would encourage it... so you don't miss any of my updates and specials!
You can subscribe by going to my homepage and scrolling to the bottom!
Thank you to everyone who has been apart of my journey thus far!! I'm happy to continue to assist you on your journey,
And...I'm looking forward to sharing B*MoonStruck with Arizona soon!!
With all that being said...
We have a lot of awesome Lunar Energy that will be present at the end of this month... so let's dive into it!
Full Moon Energy...
Tonight is a much needed night for all!! A time to finally release the things that no longer serve you!! Take the time to write down on paper what it is you'd like to release from your life! It can truly be anything.... stress, worries, fears, financial burdens, past regrets.... etc. Write them down and then light that paper on fire (be careful of course, I usually place my in my caldron for safety).
As you watch the flames consume your paper and things you wish to remove from your life... feel the release and lightness come over you!! Allow the Universe and Lady Luna to assist you in the process. The Universe will take it from there and transmute any negative energy into pure positive peace and happiness for all.
Believe me, it works!!
What to Expect When The Moon is in Gemini...
Activity is a brewing!! You will be feeling a bit more sensitive emotionally. It will also be a time when you are ready to mingle and will feel like socializing. Beware, during this time you might feel the need to shop and purchase things that are not really needed. You might also feel the need to visit unnecessary places or events. It's a good day to be on the road, take a short travel somewhere that makes you happy. Meet up with some family or friends tonight and take some time to catch up.
People Born When the Moon is in Gemini...
Change, change and more change! You tend to be a bit indecisive and have difficulties making choices. You tend to flip flop between the things and people you like, during one single day. You are one who are easily persuaded and you have no problem going where every the wind may take you.
You tend to be more of a follower, but your very outgoing, social and talkative.
Season of the Moon...
Tree Moon, The Celtic tree months of the Reed and the Elder tree overlap with the reed representing the Moon of silence, inner workings and strength and the elder representing the Moon of completion, the days shorten as the end of the year draws near. Honor and be guided by ancestor, seek wisdom within, release what no longer serves your spirit & purpose, releasing past.
All this good energy is an added layer that will assist us in seeking wisdom within during this time, releasing what no longer serves your spirit and purpose and releasing the past. Take time to honor your ancestors who have paved the path for you and continue to guide you and look after you still to this day.
Beaver Moon, Lastly, another name you will hear this Moon being called is Beaver Moon.
Named by the Algonquin tribes and colonial Americans, the Beaver Moon was a time when our ancients would set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Other tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Fros/Snowt Moon (I'm guessing the other Native American tribes were the animal lovers, like me...with the name Frost Moon instead of Beaver, Yikes!)

Lunar Eclipse Energy...
Lunar eclipses signify a time of great change and upheaval. Eclipses are designed to put us on the "right" path whether we realize it or not. You might notice during this time that things could change abruptly... relationships, jobs, careers, friendships etc. The energy will bring up repressed feelings or emotions during this time as well. This will help you take closer looks at personal relationships you have. Did you feel any of this energy recently??
When you are in tune with your own needs & intentions, and of those around you...you will be able to see clearly and will be able to fix any unbalances that come up during this time.
You will notice this energy of the Lunar Eclipse 3 days before and 3 days after. So during this time is when you will notice things change swiftly!
All and all.. the Eclipse is here to help you, not hurt you. It's here to push us into the right path we are meant to be on! It's the Universes way of saying... "Hey You.. the time is NOW, no more putting off the change you need in your life!" So enjoy the energy and keep a positive mind set as any changes come your way!
Eclipses Always Come in Pairs...

The Darkness is Temporary
The Lunar Eclipse is a great time to remember that in the dark times it's good to reflect on the things we can release and let go of, dig deep into our
Doing this allows us so much more space in our life for the ability to manifest what it is we truly wish and hope for! It's also a reminder that the dark times only last for a short time. Soon the light will shine again and bring a bit of positively back.
The light will help shed a new understanding for the reasons why you had to have some dark time.
Balance is everything, and having some dark with some light will allow you to see that things happen for a reason!
This is the perfect time to share one of my favorite Harry Potter Quotes...
You choose how you respond to each and everything that happens in our life! You create your reality!
Just like this Lunar Eclipse...her light will shine again with time and patients! Remember...the darkness won't last forever....turn on your bright positive light from within, and change your outcome to what you truly desire!!
The following Crystals are most beneficial to work with when the Moon is in Gemini. If you are in Sun/Star Sign of Gemini, these Crystals will also be of benefit for you to work with. They will help balance you out, allowing the positive within your sign to be amplified and the negative to be less of an affect on you.
Chrysocolla: This lovely blue and green colored Crystal is one that you will want to get your hands on!
Due to the duel-type personality that Gemini's tend to have...Chrysocolla will help calm the duality and will turn any negative energy into positive, leaving you feeling great!
Hematite: Grounding & Protection are the main focuses of Hematite!
As an Air Sign, Gemini's tend to need a bit of help in the grounding department...and that is where Hematite comes in. It will help assist you become more present and will help balance you.
Well my dear MoonLights...
I'm wishing you an amazing Magickal MoonTastic Night!!
Loves & Lunar Hugs,
