Here Be Dragons
“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Upcoming Ceremony on 6/27:
Here Be Dragons Full Moon in Capricorn
The key word for Capricorn, aka, the Sea-Goat, is mastery.
That is what this Saturn-ruled sign is all about, the areas in life that require mastery (with a special focus on job and career), and the endurance and dedication it takes to achieve it.
Capricorn is closely connected to our sense of time, so if you ever feel like you don’t have enough time to become as proficient in a given field as you want to, if you feel like you mismanage time, or if you feel like time is NOT on your side, then this is the Moon and this is the sign to work with.
The brightest blessing that Capricorn bestows is on the work and career sector of our lives. This sign encourages us to come into deeper relationship with our work in the world. For some that might mean bringing more visibility to their work and sharing it with a wide audience. For others it might mean snagging that annual promotion, and for some it might mean changing fields all together. Capricorn says “never fear” to all of it, for this is a sign of strength, endurance, and victory – qualities it is only too happy to share!
This Ceremony is ideal for those who are ready to:
- *Get clear about what your work in the world really is – and share it with others.
- *Invoke mastery when it comes to business acumen.
- *Encourage vision and clarity in the area of seeing where your business is right now as well as where (and how) it can grow.
- *Manage time brilliantly.
- *Increase the audience for your work.
- *Bless your business and the people who benefit from it.
- *Create better structures within which your business can thrive.
- *Attain victory, success, and recognition within your field of expertise.
- *Level up either in your professional life or in the development of a new skill.
- *Master their craft.
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
