Full Super Snow Moon in Virgo February 2019 February 19, 2019 19:56

Happy Full Super Snow Moon in Virgo 
The full super moon in the Earth sign of Virgo peaked this morning, February 19th, at 7:54am PTZ.  We entered the watery sign of Pisces today as well.  The February full moon was traditionally called the Snow Moon by the Native Americans as February typically gets the most snowfall of all the months each year.  A super moon happens when the moon is closest to the earth.  This lunar month's Spirit Animal and Gemstone Art features Roly Poly and Pearl.  You can buy a 5x5 print.
"This Super Full Moon is also potent as it falls at zero degrees of Virgo. Zero is the number of potential and limitless opportunities. Zero is the blank canvas of all creation, signaling that this Full Moon is really going to offer infinite potential." 
"February’s Full Moon is going to help us realize our potential and also the potential around us, it is also going to open us, broaden our horizons, and encourage us to open our minds and hearts to something beyond our current reality."
To really benefit from the potency of this super full moon, try her Full Moon Ritual tonight.
Here's what my other favorite astrologers have to say about today's Super Full Moon:
Roly Poly, also known as Pill Bug, is my spirit animal choice for this Full Moon.  I should rather say that it chose me, as the one in the artwork literally walked acorss my jeweler's bench and cast its shadow on my hands while I was working on a project.  It's shadow made it look menacing and huge but when I looked up, it was just a little old Roly Poly.  I used to love playing with these harmless little "bugs" when I was a kid.  I would gently nudge them with a twig to make them roll up like an armadillo into a little ball of protective armour.  After such a serendipitous meeting in my new studio, I immediately researched Roly Poly spirit animal meaning online and learned that Roly Poly’s are not insects, but in fact, crustaceans, like crab, shrimp, barnacles, lobster and krill.  They are the only crustacean that lives on land.  
Roly Poly’s message is to go PLAY!  Reclaim your inner child. Live IN THE MOMENT!  We all must work but play is also a must for rejuvination, self love and emotional health.  Roly Poly asks us to balance both aspects of life.  Roly Poly reminds us to protect ourselves from those who don’t have our best interest in mind.  They remind us that we can have clear protective "armour" when we set clear boudaries.  The remind us to embrace who we are, to have self confidence and to stand in our power.
I chose pearl because it popped in my mind.  When I saw we were entering Pisces today, I felt like it was perfect.  Pearl symbolizes innocence, faith and purity.   It resonates with the sacral and heart chakras.  Pearls are known as the, "Stone of Sincerity", as they are a symbolic of truth and personal integrity.  They promote a happy marriage and family tradition. Pearls resonate with both the heart and sacral chakras.  They're wonderful tools to regulate female reproductive organs and combat the symptoms of PMS as they naturally connect our bodies with the rhythms of the tides and moon.  They help one to realize their true nature and to love themselves more.  They help bring happiness and uplift moods.  

These are 14.5 - 15.5 inches long and have extender chains making them adjustable.  They're handwrapped in copper or antique brass and are $67 each!  They're listed in the Gemstone Section.
Iolite, Green Chalcedony, Grey Labradorite, Citrine, Carnelian, Green Fluorite, Jasper, Black Onyx, Rose Quartz
I took the photos for these on Shipwreck Beach, some even on the wreckage of the Peter Iredale herself.  She crashed her in 1906 and her bones have remained.  Shipwreck Beach is a tourist attraction that draws people year round.  It's a 20 minute drive from my apartment and one of my favorite places in Oregon.

Emerald, Peruvian Opal, Pyrite, Aquamarine, Carnelian, Unakite, Solar Quartz, Sardonyx, Tanzanite, Aqua Chalcedony, Pyrite, Red Jasper, Druzy Quartz, Rainbow Fluorite, Rutilated Quartz, Chrysophrase, Red Tiger's Eye, Phrenite
Straight from Tucson and available in your choice of Antique Brass or Antique Silver 16 inch chain.  There are 19 new offerings all listed in the Chakra Gemstone Section.  I took some of these product shots on a more recent shipwreck.  I'm not sure what it's story is, but I find it to be beautiful.  They don't call this area the Graveyard of the Pacific for no reason.  There are more shipwrecks here than any other part of the world.
Join me this Sunday in Portland at animal.plant.mineral. for a Maker Trunk Show.  I'll be popping up with two other artists and the whole store is full of hand crafted, mostly locally made items.
Stay tuned to my Instagram for new product uploads, more shipwreck photos and other PNW views.  Enjoy this Super Full Moon!  Love and Light to you all.

Full Wolf Blood Super Moon Total Lunar Eclipse January 2019 January 20, 2019 13:58

Happy Full Wolf Blood Super Moon Total Lunar Eclipse!
This Full Moon is in Leo and peaks at 9:16pm PTZ.  The Total Lunar Eclipse peaks at 9:12pm PTZ tonight, almost the exact same time.  So set your intentions as this energy will be potent!  What awesome energy to start out this new year.  This Full Moon was traditionally called the "Wolf Moon" by the natives due to the cries of hungry wolves heard around this time of the year.  This one is a blood moon, and the moon will actually turn a blood red hugh during the eclipse.  This is partially why I chose to use Bloodstone for this month's Lunar Oracle art.  In addition to all of this celestial activity, today we also move out of Earthy Capricorn into Airy Aquarius.  There's a whole lot going on today!
Here's what my favorite astrologers have to say:
Here are a few articles on the Eclipse:
Bloodstone is the "Stone of the Spiritual Warrior", and it's extremely protective and healing. It encourages selflessness, generosity, idealism and upholding of justice.  Bloodstone also helps one to increase their spirituality and intuition.  It's extremely grounding and calming and is especially helpful for sensitive types and empaths.  Bloodstone is also known as a stone of noble sacrifice.  It inspires people to take the moral and right action.  In the middle ages, the red spots were thought to be the blood of Jesus Christ.  Warriors for centuries have carried Bloodstone into battle for protection.  It encouraged bravery and was used for its blood coagulation abilities to stop wounds from bleeding out on the battlefield.  Bloodstone inspires courage and boosts self esteem.  It's a great purifier and helps to heal both physical and emotional wounds. Bloodstone helps to regulate blood pressure and is great for the physical heart.   It helps to overcome addictions and patterns that are self destructive.  Bloodstone is used to purify and detoxify the body.  Its grounding energy helps clear away negativity.  Bloodstone is both a Root and Heart Chakra stone and works to connect the lower three Chakras with the Heart Chakra.  It heightens creativity and helps you to live in the present moment. Bloodstone helps to see situations clearly and to make better decisions.  It lessons anger and aggressiveness and provides a calming sense of peace and a message of love.
Wolf is a symbol of guardianship, freedom and loyalty.   Wolves must rely on quick instinct and sharp intuition to survive in the wild.  Wolf helps us tap into our own intuition to see through any veils of mistrust. Wolf helps one to overcome their fear of mistrusting others.  It helps us to set clearer boundaries for ourselves and protect our energy levels. Wolves work in packs and understand that healthy community is important for happiness and survival.  Wolf also understands the need to break free from the pack from time to time to regroup and work on our own spiritual and mental well being.  Call upon wolf when it's time to take peaceful action to stand up for what you believe in.

October Full Harvest and Hunter Moon October 5, 2017 15:40

Happy Full Harvest and Hunter Moon!
The Farmer's Almenac explains why this moon is both the Hunter and Harvest Moon of this year.  It happens to also be my and my husband's 3rd wedding anniversary!  I was almost done with this artwork and then I thought, "I should include the 3 year wedding anniversary stone in this."  As it turns out, Clear Quartz (and pearl) are the traditional 3rd year wedding anniversary stones.  So this Full Moon is extra special to me.  It's in the sign of Aires and here are what the experts have to say:
I normally launch new products on the New Moon but I am OREGON bound for our Anniversary trip October 10th through the 21st.  My husband lived in Portland for 7 years and Astoria for 3 years so he's showing me his old stomping grounds.  I lovingly call him, "Chef Squatch," so I feel as if we are taking him to his native land. The New Moon is on the 19th so I thought I would launch some items on the Full Moon so I can enjoy my trip.  Here are this Lunar Full Moon's offerings:
Conflict Free
Happy Full Moon!
Keep an eye on my Instagram for photos of OREGON!
