Christmas Bells 2018 #5 . . . .”The three wise men” who failed in their Divine Task





“For three days the Star stood over the house like a faithful sentinel.

Its light called the people to the place.

It had attracted rich and poor,
and led three kings through distant lands to Bethlehem.

They were chosen to smooth the earthly path for the Son of God.

They were to guard like a treasure the Most Holy Which the earth now bore.

They themselves had besought the task. That was the purpose of their life on earth.”

– Jashua Ben Yhawe. –

…..but they only presented gifts and left the Child unprotected

Full Cold Moon Blessings!




Full Cold Moon Blessings!
The Winter Solstice and the Full Moon are happening less than a day apart! It is
a symbolic dance of the Darkness and the Light. Even when we experience the dark
night of the soul, the inner Light is always present. We cannot recognize the
Light unless we have experienced the Darkness. We need to gently balance between
these states, and remember that we come to the Earth plane to experience it all.
Let’s embrace both light and dark, and find our innate wholeness and awakening.
Now is the perfect time to rest and reflect before regeneration and renewal
processes of transformative spiritual alchemy. Let’ honor the Mother Moon for
her luminous guidance in the dark times, and encouragement to shine our own

Full Moon Blessings!




The Full Beaver Moon will shine its magic light on November 23rd.
The Moon in Gemini is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication,
so spoken words are really important and magnified under this full moon.
Don’t be afraid to speak what is on your heart, but be mindful of your words
and give yourself plenty of time to think it over when responding to others.
Gemini is air sign, so don’t forget to breathe when misunderstandings rise.

Beneath the Harvest Moon!





It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes
And roofs of villages, on woodland crests
And their aerial neighborhoods of nests
Deserted, on the curtained window-panes
Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes
And harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests!
Gone are the birds that were our summer guests,
With the last sheaves return the laboring wains!
All things are symbols: the external shows
Of Nature have their image in the mind,
As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves;
The song-birds leave us at the summer’s close,
Only the empty nests are left behind,
And pipings of the quail among the sheaves.


~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807 – 1882

inspiration and prosperity…. Find the absolute joy and the sheer pleasure of
walking this Earth as you journey forward.

Bath yourself in the silver light of Harvest Full Moon!




Full Moon in Aries, September 24-25th! Bath yourself in the silver light of
Harvest Full Moon! The intense energy of the Full Moon amplifies our emotions
and thoughts, whether they are positive or negative. Therefore, it is important
to just focus on positive intentions, uplifting thoughts and inspirational
activities that will be intensified and enhance our emotional wellbeing and
spiritual growth. We need to be gentle with our feelings and keep a balance
between our emotions and our thoughts.

Traditionally, the moon closest to the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest
Moon because at the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by
the moonlight.

Full Pink Moon Blessings!




Mother Moon will be in her full beauty on April 29! The Moon in Scorpio brings
light to our shadows that we avoid to deal with. Scorpio Moon is profoundly
transformational and invites us to contemplate the eternal transformations of
life, and how life continually creates new forms from the death of old ones. The
Moon encourages us to explore a shadow side of ourselves, face its presence and
let go everything that holds us back from our truth and purpose. We need to
learn to fearlessly manifest our true essence and true Self.

The name for this Full Moon came from the pink wild ground phlox, the first
blooming flowers in early spring. It was also called the Egg Moon or the Fish

Happy Blue Full Moon in Libra!





The Full Moon in the cardinal air sign invites us to contemplate the balance in
different aspects of our lives, learn to understand contrasting positions and be
truthful to our authentic self. Full Moon brings energetic surges that can push
us from our comfort zones to embrace the changes and encourage the new growth.
Let’s be free to express yourself with careful consideration of ripple effects
and impact of our actions on others.

The name for this Full Crow Moon came from the northern native tribes who
observed that the crow cawing heralds the end of winter. Sometimes it was also
referred to as the Full Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from
thawing by day and freezing at night, or the Full Worm Moon since the earthworms
appear from the thawed soil and attract the birds.

Super Blue Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse!




“Let’s connect with the rhythms of Universe and celebrate Super Blue Blood Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse!
On January 31st Mother Moon will rise as a Full Moon, Supermoon, and Blue Moon!
On the top of that, Moon will experience a total lunar eclipse and appear blood
red or copper-red in the sky. This celestial coincidence has not happened in
more than 150 years. It is a Blue Moon because it is a second Full Moon in
January. It is also a Supermoon because it is in the closest position to the
Earth and appears much larger than usual.
The eclipse symbolizes opening of new doorways and closing of old ones. It is a
transformative time to transmute old emotional scars into new understanding.
Stay positive and balanced during this time when feelings are amplified and new
unfamiliar energies of high intensity come into play. Stay true to yourself and
let the river of love flow freely from your heart.”

Full Super Moon Blessings!




Full Super Moon Blessings!
Today let’s greet Wolf Moon in its enchanting fullness.
This is a perfect time to embark on something new!
Focus on your big dreams, crystalize an intention
and clarify all ingredients needed to fulfill the dreams.
Full Moon energy is powerful and will help you to
start moving forward to assure your success.
It is also a right time for releasing things
that no longer serve your higher self…..

The name for January’s Full Moon was inspired by the wolf packs
howling hungrily outside Indian villages, amid the cold and deep snows
midwinter. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon.
