Here Be Dragons
“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Upcoming Ceremony on 12/3:
Here Be Dragons Full Moon in Gemini
Getting the Message Out…with the Full Moon in Gemini!
I hope the Taurus moon felt supportive, easy, enriching – and even decadent – for all of you, because we are now headed towards a Full Moon in Gemini, and it is time to pick up the pace.
Gemini is the sign of the communication par excellence. If you have something to say, share, write, sing or shout from the rooftops, then this is your moon! If you are looking for message clarity in the way that you describe your work, in your own understanding of your purpose and potential, and in your relationships, then this is your moon.
If you love words and want to use yours to create positive change, or to inspire, bless and honor, then guess what? This is your moon!
If there is an area of your life that has felt stuck, uninspired, and/or left for dead, this is the best time to get insight into it and then to nourish it back to life or let it go once and for all.
For those who have book proposals burning holes on their laptops, and for those who are looking for deeper ways to connect; for the ones who love to read and the ones who are ready once and for all to find their true voice, now is the time, my loves, and this is the moon!
This Ceremony is ideal for those who:
- ~Are all about clear, direct, and gorgeous communication.
- ~Want to write the big book, the important letter, the really hard email, the stunning article, the gorgeous web copy, the eye-catching proposal.
- ~Seek message clarity, whether this is being able to articulate to others what you do and why you do it and/or attaining a crystal clear understanding your purpose and promise.
- ~Need to honor beloved friends, siblings, and brothers and sisters in spirit.
- ~Would like to build or participate in social communities.
- ~Are ready to learn the next awesome thing!
We will have another blessing litany to say together during the Full Moon.
As always, an original blessing will go out to all participants.
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
