Here Be Dragons
“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Upcoming Ceremony on 12/22:
Here Be Dragons Full Moon in Cancer
Home Sweet Home with the Full Moon in Cancer
December’s Full Moon in Cancer brings a quieter, more introspective vibe into our lives after the quicksilver brilliance of November’s Moon in Gemini.
Cancer is the sign associated with the sweetness of home, family, your intimate tribe of extra-special beloveds, nourishment in all forms (with a delightful emphasis on yummy food), dreams, poetry, and wise investment.
It is a moon aligned with all efforts to bring more beauty and peace into your home and into your life mmmhm, it sounds good to me too!
This Ceremony is ideal for those who are ready to:
• Would like to bless and honor their homes and/or families.
• Are ready to discover what is truly nourishing and commit to a new nutrition program, come into right relationship with food, or succeed in their diet plans.
• Want to bless their financial investments, call in the wisdom to make good ones, and put out the intention for a higher yield.
• Love poetry and good stories and want to make more room for those things in their lives.
• Need to bring healing, strengthening, and blessing to specific family members or close friends with a special emphasis and opportunity on healing any Mother wounds.
• Are considering moving, buying or selling a home, remodeling, decorating, or finding the perfect home.
• Honor the Moon and/or feel deep connection with the vast ocean.
We will have another blessing litany to say together during the Full Moon.
What is Here Be Dragons?
Once upon a time, when the world seemed a bit smaller, cartographers would mark out mysterious lands and territories with the phrase “here be dragons.” It was an elegant way of saying this land is unknown and therefore we are afraid of it in the same way that we are afraid of dragons.
Though our world has been explored up, down, and all around, and though our modern maps do not ever mention dragons, we still face them every single day. The situations, people, and events that feel like they are mysterious and beyond our control, the stories and behaviors that frighten us, the places where we feel uncertain and afraid…here be dragons.
In this uncertainty and anxiety, we are certainly not alone.
It was for our ancestors, just as it is for us. The way to encounter these dragons is to accept the challenge, face our fears and obstacles with courage, and call upon sacred ceremony to help us in our quest. And one of the deepest and most profound ways of creating ceremony and ritual is to involve the entire community in blessing and supporting each other.
How it Works ~
Every now and then as the spirit strikes, I create a community altar service around one of the “dragons” that many of us have personal experience with.
Specific petitions, blessings, prayers, and intentions will be written by each person who participates – because words really do have wings.
Altars are created, offerings made, blessings given, and prayers chanted, but no reports and no divination follow up are included in these services.
Kind Words ~
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you offering these!I’ve only participated the last two months and haven’t been able to do it at the exact time, but each time I’ve ended up sobbing my way through the closing. Heavy, gasping, transformative, healing sobs. The blessings speak so much truth and it’s made me realize that I’ve been afraid of not only asking for what I truly want, but realizing what it even is that I want to begin with.Thank you thank you thank you! — Anastasia
