What a tremendous energy packed weekend! Celebrations of Easter, Passover, Earth Day, and Full Moon. One of these events touches everyone of us. Even Mother Nature is joining in by showing us her full palette of supremacy with sun and fluffy clouds this morning, thunder and lightening this afternoon, and all of it connected by her breath, the wind. Powerful!
Astrologically, the Full Moon this month is known as the Wind Moon (how appropriate) and is in Scorpio. We move into the sign of Taurus tomorrow, April 20th. So today the Sun is at 29 degrees Aires and tomorrow at 1-degree Taurus. Mercury is moving into Aires making communication fun and also sometimes scary.
We entered into the Celtic Tree Month of Willow on Monday, April 15th. The Willow has, through all cultures, been regarded as a tree with magical qualities. It has graced cemeteries in China and been carved onto tombs in the Middle Ages as a symbol of immortality. It is used in love spells. Hera, a Green goddess, was born under a Willow tree. Orpheus touch a Willow branch and received the gift of supernatural eloquence. The exiled Jews, in the Old Testament hung their harps on the Willows as they wept beside the rivers of Babylon.
The Willow of the Celts and Druids was, however, the Pussy Willow, known to the Irish as one of the “seven noble trees of the land.” It is used in love spells, as a guard against evil, and in divination. This is the wood to “knock on” to avert bad luck.
Today I will be fighting the forces of lackadaisyness at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. from noon until 5 pm. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes and a great way to enjoy a rainy afternoon. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are well-versed in ways to supplement your Full Moon celebrations. Incense, candles, sage, and books on Moon Lore are in abundant supply at Creative Energy!
