A full moon in Sagittarius on June 9, 2017 encourages us to explore the realm of the religious function of our psyche.

While Scorpio is known for those two unavoidable principles in life: death & taxes, it is also known for the depth of connection we feel through spiritually-driven intimacy. On a soul level, Scorpio demands that we use our intimate relationships as more than just a way to satisfy lustful energy, or as an ego-boosting activity. Scorpio wants us to use our sexuality as a way to deeply connect on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level in order to transcend consciousness.

Pisces New Moon & Solar Eclipse: Swimming in Spiritual Waters (2/26/17)

Posted on 2/24/2017 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Solar Eclipse Alchemical Ritual Pisces New Moon New Beginnings

A solar eclipse gives us insights into the psyche of the world. When the light of our sun is hidden by the moon, the shadows it casts reveal the hidden activities of the collective unconscious. What are we all working on? What do we all need to reveal? Where can we all grow? This particular Pisces new moon and solar eclipse comes just two weeks after a lunar eclipse, and five months after a similar back-to-back solar and lunar eclipse duet from September of 2016. Essentially, this is both the ending of that long eclipse pattern, and the beginning of a new one. For the next six months, we will be basking in the shadowy light of this Pisces eclipse, as we let the energies of the previous eclipse cycle energies wane.

We can no longer resist the change that is upon us, and ignore the power of the shadow within.

Capricorn Full Moon (7/19/16) - Manifesting Real Meaning In Our Life

Posted on 7/13/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Alchemical Ritual Capricorn Full Moon Healing Energy Invocation

Capricorn, the wise elder, gets the full light of the moon this month, bringing awareness to our level of maturity, commitment to discipline, being overworked and developing strategies for our career or lifestyle. The energy of Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and so there is constant pressure to get work done and work the plans we’ve crafted. On the low side, however, this pressure leads to workaholism and forgetting the human element in our endeavors. Capricorn can be cold and ruthless when it comes to achieving its goal. The light of this full moon gives us a clearer vision to understand who, why and what we are working for at this time. If our goals have become trivial, materialistic or narrow minded, this is a good time to broaden our view and reintroduce meaning back into our life’s work.

Aquarius New Moon (Monday - 2/8/16) : Manifesting the Magic of our Truth

Posted on 2/2/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Meditate New Moon Alchemical Ritual Aquarius

The new moon is in the sign of Aquarius, the water bearer. Often likened to the figure of Jesus, the water bearer holds similar qualities that shine through the darkness of the new moon. Known for humanitarian efforts, revolutionary thinking, individualism and speaking the truth, the Aquarian energy also finds trouble with being exiled for radical thought, and going into seclusion to avoid skepticism (or, as a result of it!). It is all these qualities that the new moon calls forth from within you. At this time, you must speak the truth about what is most important to you, and walk your own path. For, when you do, you inspire others to do the same. Nothing is more important than starting your own revolution, whether it be quiet or loud, and living the life you are destined for.
