Here Be Dragons
“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Upcoming Ceremony on 8/26:
Here Be Dragons Full Moon in Pisces
Dreaming, Healing, and Hope Restoring with the Full Moon in Pisces
So, after a couple of months of lots of air and lots of fire and lots of whoosh!!! It is time to return to our tenderness with the Full Moon in Pisces. This is a gentle moon that encourages reflection, self-care, and deep dreaming after all of the drama of last month. Mercury is now direct and under this moon’s light the quieter resonances (and aftershocks from the eclipse) may be explored.
This Ceremony is ideal for those who are ready to:
- *Wish to remember and engage fully with their night dreams.
- *Desire to restore their ability to see with the inner eyes and deepen their divination skills.
- *Are in need of healing, soothing, and calming on all levels (mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual).
- *Would like to infuse their artistry with depth, scope, and range.
- *Yearn for more kindness, time, and love for self and others.
- *Bless and honor their magical, in-between natures.
- *Want to see clearly and bid adieu to any illusions or delusions that keep us trapped and held back.
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
