Happy Summer Solstice!!!!



It is a wonderful time to energize the body and soul for the entire year.
In old traditions, the summer solstice celebrations lasted several days
with outdoor dancing, singing and jumping over a bonfire. In these
rituals, people gave thanks to Sun for bringing warmth,
abundance and full bloom to the Nature riches. 
Have a joyous summer and enjoy a healing power of warm sunshine!

Full Moon reflections



Full Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius on June 17th! 

This Full Moon in the Sagittarius calls us to look at the bigger picture of our life
and carefully examine what we believe. We may look at all outdated beliefs
or views that just do not sit with us anymore and release them
to make better choices for a new growth.

#WingedJewels . . . .The Bee





The singing bee comes like a little ship,
And docks beside a rose for cargoed wine,
Its gossamer paddles spinning in the air
A little plane upon the flower vine.
It anchors in the bell upon its quest,
And lulls its motor in the crimson bower,
Then with its honey glides on to the west,
A tiny airplane stealing off a flower.

Its paddles fan the wind in silver singing,
A boom of music down the garden dells;
The honey monoplane with motors ringing,
Its gauze propellers purring like soft bells;
And so it dips and soars and dives and noses,
A little ship among the summer roses.

Happy Full Flower Moon in Scorpio!




Scorpio sign rules major events and unfoldings in our lives: rebirth, death and spiritual transformative growth. The Scorpio Full Moon is one of the most powerful Full Moons for changing and transforming our life. It is a time of releasing, clearing, and cleansing the darkness of hidden, unspoken conflicts and a time of quietude to get deep with ourselves. Sun is in Taurus, and Scorpio-Taurus interplay brings forward a tension between signs polarities and requires some intelligent balancing. While self-oriented Taurus enjoys stability, certainty and security supported by materials possessions on a physical plane of existence, passionate Scorpio represents more mystical concepts of life focusing on intangibles, changes, and inner emotional and spiritual workings. In this esoteric dance of Light nature of Taurus and a Shadow nature of Scorpio, we need to find a balance and uncover the path to healing from inside out. The best way to do that is to acknowledge our own shadows and start cultivating self-love by accepting our dual nature. 

The name for May’s Full Moon was inspired by wonderful colors and fragrance of blooming flowers gifted by Mother Earth as a celebration of Spring. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Full Corn Planting Moon or the Full Milk Moon.

May Night!

The spring is fresh and fearless 
And every leaf is new, 
The world is brimmed with moonlight, 
The lilac brimmed with dew.

Here in the moving shadows 
I catch my breath and sing– 
My heart is fresh and fearless 
And over-brimmed with spring.

#Omens&Symbols . . . . The lotus flower




A very important spiritual symbol in Buddhism along with several other religions, the lotus is generally seen as a sign of enlightenment. The lotus flower has grown out of the dark, muddy water of materialism to open it’s petals to the sunshine of enlightenment.
This symbol represents the journey out of the darkness and into transformation. It is also a sign of the importance of detachment, as water droplets slide easily off the pedals.

New Moon in Taurus!





New Moon in Taurus!
Taurus is a sign that likes stability, security, and feeling safe. You are likely to have a need for safety and comfort that is not easy to find in this chaotic and ever-changing world. Everything is constantly shifting, changing and becoming something else. To find the center of stability you need to learn to accept the changes as an innate part of life. Life is like a river, it flows, it changes and so do you. When you flow with a river and don’t seek stability in material things, you can find the source of peace and tranquility within yourself by re-discovering your purpose and motivations. Look deeply into your entire being and bring forth a hidden beauty of your truth, kindness and loving relationships into existence. This will change you and world around you.
Happy New Moon!

Morning has broken like the first morning

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight
Mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise ev’ry morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world
