WELCOME TO NEW MOON

Welcome to new moon in Sagittarius. With my moon in this sign and my Sun being in Aquarius, it can be a wild ride being the spark that catches fire AND being the wind that spreads it. I don’t know about y’all, but this past Scorpio moon kicked my ass and Mercury in gatorade definitely made it more interesting. After touring for nearly 8 months this year, I’m very ready to slow things down and go into hibernation. My intention this new moon is simple: take the items I shelved all year ( i.e. grief, sorrow, and mourning loss // gratitude, self love, forgiveness of self // to name a few ) and care for them. This was likely the hardest year to date for me and it’s a mixed bag because not only was it intensely traumatizing it was also incredibly brilliant and beautiful. After spending a better part of the year caring for everyone else, my intention is to care for myself in a deep way now AND to not feel obligated to anyone else’s needs except my own. And so with this new moon intention, also comes the announcement for the second single coming December 11th titled ‘Slow Down’. Some of you may know it as Horsetail. Oh, the changes songs go through and how they will live long after us! I’m loving that the first two singles are both songs I wrote nearly ten years ago. They withstood the test of time and got better with age. Truth be told, I hadn’t ever ‘finished’ this song until this past winter when I brought it back out again and gave the second verse some loving consideration. Inspiration derived from a reoccurring injury my partner at the time was working on healing. She began using the plant medicine to help her joints and bones. Everything for us at that time was about moving slow and going with the moment’s flow. We were living in our van with our dogs and were driving around the country exploring. Taking life in moment to moment. While the song is definitely a lullaby and ode to our plant teachers, it also speaks to being afraid of losing your way and reminding oneself to slow it down in order to get the real work done. So, may the Archer’s arrow spark a fire for you. May it liberate those stuck places and emotions so that tangible healing can occur. May slowness and stillness provide that broadening horizon for the ultimate manifestation of our prayers and dreams, individually and collectively.

FANS INTENTIONS

My intention is to stay present with that comes. No more hiding behind work, booze, all the things we use to stay asleep. I am here to learn, grow, love through compassion and understanding of myself and others.

Gloria

My intention is to speak up and share my story of surviving domestic violence so that other women know they’re not alone, and to help those women begin to thrive.

Siobhan

Washington State

My intention is to be brave. To not worry about consequences of things I wanna do and to push fear aside so it doesn’t stop me from exploring, living life to the fullest, loving people. I want to be braver overall. Realizing that life is too short to worry about repercussions or things not falling into place like I want. The only way I will know if something works or not is if I try. Be brave.

This most recent new moon I set the intention to wake up early every day (even if it’s 10 minutes early to do yoga, meditate, journal, read my oracle cards, whatever I need to do/have time to do. It’s been going very well so far!

Be still more. This world has more voices than your own, more voices than the human. And they have something to tell, something to teach. Be still. Meet. Respect. Bow. Surrender. Life wants to work with you, not against you. So stop talking. Start listening.

To remain strong despite the pain. Learn by the wolf, work hard, tend to my cub in fierceness and tenderness. Always play with my pack, dance laugh sing tell crappy jokes who cares. And finally to take time away from the pack to sing my own song to the moon.
