Today we have a guest post from Asiah Mae. She is a goddess who produces many cool projects like For the Scribes and illvibethetribe. Today she graciously shares her full moon ritual with us. Thank you Asiah Mae!

Happy Hunter’s Moon aka Full Moon in Aries!

Are you ready to reap what you’ve been sowing? Aries full moon is all about personal truths. The fierce, determined person inside of you, the badass that’s forever getting it done. Oh and the passion! This is what Aries brings to us. You’re probably feeling very powerful, or super ready to start a new project. Maybe you’ve cleaned the whole house today (I definitely have), organized your blog, or ran a mile.

Either way, you’re ready to go. But slow down! Full moons are for release, and re-evaluation, and with the sun in polar opposite and balancing Libra ask yourself: in what areas do I need to be more balanced? In what ways do I need to give more to myself, but also to others? Aries can be a selfish and boastful sign, and it’s also ruled by Mars, the planet of war, so we need to take extra care as to not hurt anyone around us with our words or emotions today. Take some time to meditate and figure out what’s your “why” today. What’s the passion behind what you want or what you do? What obstacles do you need to get over in order to be your best you?

Full Moon Ritual

Supplies:

  1. pen
  2. paper
  3. red candles
  4. fire safe bowl
  5. crystals (optional)

Start by clearing your space with either sage, Palo Santo or with the energy of your mind. Find a quiet space and set the mood. I usually have a playlist going very softly, incense lit, and things that make me happy surrounding me, in this case some items that represent your passions. Light your red candle and meditate upon what you’d like to let go of, and what you’d like to manifest. Visualize yourself wrapped in a red bubble, start at the top of your toes and let it surround you. Inside of the bubble, visualize all of your passions taking form. Let that sink into you.

When you open your eyes, begin to write. Make a list of all the things you’re passionate about, and why. On another sheet of paper, write down all the things you want to let go of, and what you would like to replace it with. Always close with your karma free clause.

“I welcome all of this into my life, or something greater, for the greatest good of all concerned”.

When you are finished, fold each paper and burn it with the red candle. Drop them in the bowl. Make sure it is completely burned. Take your ashes outside and toss it to the wind (Libra is Air, Aries is fire.) Take note of how you feel after, your energy levels and the color of the flame. Let me know on social media at @_asiahmae on twitter!

Happy Manifesting!

Where Has Jai Been The Past Few Weeks?

Fashion Design Student

Fashion Design Student

I know you have been wondering where I have been the past few weeks.  I am a fashion design student, so I was really busy with school. It really took a lot out of me completing my assignments for Collections class. I had to create a tiny clothing collection for class. I spent a lot of time, money, and resources trying to make magic happen. This was the first time I would show my own designs to the world, and I didn’t want to half step anything. I created countless test muslin shells and patterns, and had way too many visits to the fabric store.

What I’ve Been Up To The Past Few Weeks

Sorry if I have been somewhat inconsistent with the blog.  I have been thinking of taking the blog back to the way it used to be, but most importantly I’ve been working hard on school work. I am in Collections class now, so I will be showing several garments for my first fashion show at school in March. The pressure is on. I have redone one garment so many times. I have literally remade the pattern and then sewn the dress in muslin like a million times. Please bear with me while I try to get my fashion education on! Thanks. Photo from here.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Do More Of What Makes You Happy

Do More Of What Makes You Happy

Do More Of What Makes You HappyA lot of people like to do what other people think is right, but sometimes or most of the time you have to do more what makes you happy. People love to put unnecessary pressure on people to follow their rules and live life like they are living. Sometimes you just have to say to hell with all of that and do you. I am a firm believer in doing more of what makes me happy. Sometimes I go for a drive by myself, sometimes I watch a fashion movie on my Roku, sometimes I take a little try to the local art museum. Sometimes I dress weird or listen to weird music, but you know what… when I listen to that weird music or go to the museum I am happy. Live your life for you. Don’t live other people’s dreams.

Words of Wisdom- Be Happy and Be Free of the BS

Be Happy

Be Happy

Life is so stressful, so I am always trying to be happy and be free of the BS. Some people wonder why I am so quick to let some people or things go, but I found out early on in life that letting go of the BS is the first step to being happy. I am serious. This week I want you to physically, emotionally, whateverly let go of the tiniest piece of BS in your life and see what happens.

It could be a bad habit, an old and ratty comforter, it could a class at school that you are not prepared for- withdraw from that class early and get yourself together-, or it could be any person, place, or thing. Whatever it is…start small and let it go -Frozen Style. I promise you will soon be free and happy.

The more you let go of the BS, the more you will be happy, and the more you will be happy, the more letting go of the BS will become second nature for you. You won’t tolerate the foolishness and negativity that bad people and things bring into your life. Yes. Some people will not understand why you stopped hanging around them. They will be hurt and confused, but the happiness you now feel will be so freeing. Let it go. Photo from here.
