Here Be Dragons
“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Upcoming Ceremony on 10/24:
Here Be Dragons Full Moon in Taurus
Wealth, Pleasure, Getting Slow and Into your Flow with the Full Moon in Taurus
The early October Full Moon shines out in the sign of the heavenly Bull Taurus and as always it calls upon the energy of Taurus’ equal and opposite sign: Scorpio, to get in on the fun.
As the holiday season begins to ramp up this moon comes right on the tail end of the Days of the Dead and is especially liminal and potent.
Our focus for this moon will be identifying and untangling knots around wealth, pleasure, the need to ALWAYS BE GOING, and the various obstacles that can impede our ability to be more present within the flow of the Cosmos.
If you are feeling like you need a Moon rite to nurture, nourish, slow down, savor, and build up your capacity for wealth and pleasure then now is the time and this is your moon.
This is the moon blaze through it.
This Ceremony is ideal for those who are ready to:
- * Desire to increase their personal wealth and/or the wealth factor in their business dealings.
- * Are working to manifest more abundance, joy, and pleasure in their lives.
- * Would like to get unstuck in any area that has been feeling like quick sand.
- * Find that they are in need of more beauty and pleasure and/or would like to come into a deeper relationship with the experiences that truly bring pleasure and joy.
- * Need to find a better rhythm, routine, and/or flow that allows you not only to get stuff done but also to get it right.
- * Are ready to SLOW down.
- * Want to give themselves permission to simply enjoy.
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
Registration: is open through 10/23 at midnight.
