Native Americans came up with this term because “it appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. It’s called a blood moon because the rays of the sun could color it so that the moon appears red.

The super blood wolf moon will fit right into your good vibes only lifestyle. People will feel passionate and emotional. Part of this passion and emotion is connected to what your beliefs are about what is right for humanity.

Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse

The Solar Eclipse on January 5, 2019 is positive thanks to a close alignment with the harmonious fixed star Vega. This star has an optimistic, generous, poetic, and creative influence.

This is an excellent solar eclipse for starting or growing a business. It is ideal for creative, musical and artistic projects and encourages acts of kindness and charity.

An eclipse accompanying the New Moon has a dynamic impact, prolonging the effects on all zodiac signs for as long as six months, instead of the usual four weeks.

This means all the cosmic seeds you plant now will be powerful game-changers, especially around professional endeavors.

Happy New Moon!

THE MOST WONDERFUL GINGERBREAD COOKIES

Looking for a great way to make Gingerbread Cookies this holiday season?

Tis almost the season for gingerbread cookies, a Christmas tradition. We think of “traditional” Christmas flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, and those are exactly the same spices medieval cooks would have used in their cookies ages ago. Gingerbread is a classic Christmas cookie, and yet it’s also a cookie that would have tasted strikingly similar back in the Middle Ages.

Winter solstice festivals have been held for eons, across the world. From Norway to West Africa, Ireland to India, groups of people gathered to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Celebrations revolved around food; after all, you had to feast before the famine of the winter.

By the Middle Ages, the Christmas holiday had overtaken solstice rituals throughout much of present-day Europe. The old feast traditions remained. And while the roast and drink recipes were probably quite similar to what earlier Europeans had enjoyed, the pastry world was experiencing some amazing changes. Spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper were just starting to be widely used, and dried exotic fruits like citron, apricots and dates added sweetness and texture to the dessert tray. These items, along with ingredients like sugar and butter, would have been prized as expensive delicacies by medieval cooks. Only on the most important holiday could families afford treats like these, which led to a baking bonanza to prepare for Christmas. And unlike pies or cakes, cookies could be easily shared and given to friends and neighbors. Our modern Christmas cookies date back to these medieval gifts.

Festive and fun gingerbread cookies are what we are baking today. These gingerbread men are crisp on the outside , soft on the inside and packed with ginger and everything Christmas.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holiday Thoughts

Choose thoughts that make you happy now. Whether these are joyful memories, thoughts of appreciation about the present, or thoughts anticipating wonderful things to come, any thought that makes you happy puts you in touch with the love that is ever-present in the moment.

When traditions and memories inspire a sense of happiness within you now, enjoy them!

If traditions or memories no longer give you joy or don’t resonate with you now, choose to focus on something different, new, or better.

Your holidays are a celebration of light birthed in darkness. By choosing the thoughts that make you happy now, you birth the light into your life… one day, one thought at a time.

love, k 🙂

New Moon in Sagittarius

Happy New Moon Beautiful Souls! Sagittarius is about exploration, experience, learning/teaching, travel, foreign countries, philosophies, beliefs, idealism, and optimism. It is also associated with things like marketing, media, and sales. It is passionate and instinctual, yet can be excessive and have a ‘know-it-all’ complex. However, this New Moon is an opportunity to work with Sagittarian energies in new or revamped ways.

Mercury has been retrograde since mid-November which ends today before this New Moon. Since then, we could have been experiencing some adjustments, challenges, realizations, or a different outlook in certain areas of our lives connected to Sagittarian themes mentioned. From this point on until December 24th, we will gain more clarity, momentum, productivity, or final conclusions around the aspects of our lives that been affected by the retrograde.

It is good to look back at the period between November 25th-28th which was the most significant part of this retrograde. Certain thoughts, conversations, and developments that occurred during that time could provide some of the more important realizations and understandings which could influence how things develop over the coming months. However, it is also important to see how things fall into place over the coming weeks.

This new moon can spark a bunch of upbeat emotions like extreme excitability, a carefree attitude, and a live-in-the-moment feeling! You’ll also have a lot of conversations about the great things you want to do and realize that the only thing that’s holding you back is a belief that you can’t do something.

Happy new moon, everybody!
