Full Wolf Moon

By the light of the moon Full Wolf Moon

the full moon wolf howls. 

A spectator to some, 

the truth to others. 

Go dear ones and 

bask in the light 

of the full wolf moon. 

 

The January Full Moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon, and in some Native American cultures, it is called the snow moon, to other Native tribes this occurs in February.

 Why is it called this? 

In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages as the snow piled high.  The cold bareness of the land, created an echo, a call to the land, Mother Gaia, for food.

  Why a wolf? 

In symbolism and the totem,  the wolf is known for a strong connection into higher intuition. If you have ever heard of the idiom “wolf’s instict;” this is true as they have a way of knowing just when to appear.   A wolf is an excellent communicator with other wolves, the spiritual world and Luna (moon). As the wolf appears to you, what does your instict say or react to, what you are trying to say, but are not be hearing. Another moment they are known for is “sinking your teeth into,” but rather, thinking in a scary manner, look at it as what is the wolf trying to show you, communicate to your tru heart.

January Full Moon: 

Let’s look at the energies that have been cycling for us.  This full moon is January 23, 2016 @ 05:46 pm PST.  This is at the end of Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Retrograde is a time of reflection, it is a time to slow down, unwind and truly see what no longer serves you.  The bareness of the winter land, Merucry and the Full Wolf Moon can help you release that which no longer serves you.

Do not look at this as death, rather look at this as stillness. The stillness that you need to release, so that you may re-birth into a renewal of your heart and soul. A moment to go deep within, and sit with what you heart truly needs, not what the etheric ego desires.  As the wolf comes, sit with thee, request for the energies of the wolf to help you transfer what you need to Luna, so she may let it go.

Howls of the Wolf Removal of Old Baggage: 

  • Light a candle, and gaze into the flame. 
  •  Ask what do I need to release, stop listen and allow the stillness  unfolding to 
  • the beating heart.  
  • The heart whispers, allow this to deepen. Allow your heart to speak its truth. 
  •  Write down what comes, light this over your flame, and let it go releasing-to the wolf, who’s
  • howling, 
  • voicing echos will carry to Luna.  
  • Luna will release this from you. 
  • Take 3 deep breathes in. 
  • Rest.

 

Go Dear Ones, healing your heart by the light of the moon using an eternal flame.  Happy, Howling Full Wolf Moon and Happy Releasing, each and every Dear Heart. May you be peace and love to your heart.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha

Ode to the Stretch Mark

By Natasha Botkin 

heart spiral

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend,  “How did you do this alone, how were you a mom to not one, but two autistic boys, all on your own?  I honor you.”

I have always felt blessed that the divine choose me to be their mom.  Through the good, the bad and the ugly times; raising two autistic boys on my own was not easy: there were many moments of tears, a mama grizzly bear ready to swipe anyone who would harm her cubs.  Then there is the laughter, the joy of raising, guiding, seeing their shining moments.

My unproud moment was the affects, and I offer a sincere apology to all women.  I am sorry that I have pointed, mawked, and been down right ashamed of my stretch marks, my beloved honoring me, saying , “You would be gorgeous in a bikini.” My response, “Oh yuck, with these?  Yeah, no!”

Today, something stopped me in my tracks, I was looking and sighing at “them.”  Then, I read somewhere: “There are some women who wish that they had stretch marks, and have not been given that oppotunity….”

I am truly sorry to the divine, to my beautiful self and to all women.  No matter how you became a mother, that does not matter, you are a mom and that is the most important aspect.  However, with that said, as a tribute to all women, I will wear these stretch marks with pride and honor for all women, moms.

My request, is that you too, join in and honor all women and shine your stretch marks as the beauty that you truly are!!

It all began with an email, I looked at it and went what, is this a joke?  A dear soul I adore wrote me something that made no sense.  I stepped back and asked for the divine feminine wisdom deep within me to herald forward.

Did the answer show right away? No, in fact,  another bizarre email appeared, same sender. Archangel Michael, please help, what is this?  Why am I being given these details?  Then another email from another that held bits and pieces of truth…

Again, I felt lost.  Why is this happening?  I have so much to contend with as of late, please no more.

My heart holds incredible wisdom.  I turned to my inner goddess, show me, give me signs, symbols, help me.  One by one the signs showed, the symbols arrived.  My heart opening up fun bits and pieces.

Then an article breezed my way and the words “magical new beginnings” appeared.  My heart, she began to sing and hum; I chimed into my intuition.  I stopped and listened to the gentle rain and birds singing so sweetly.  Read with care dear one, answers lie within.  I began to read this article and each word, sentence, began to answer what my heart knew; listen to my heart.

I sat there happy, internally dancing.  Victory! Score! One for Natasha’s Heart!  The motion was put forth, go with the flow; a heart full of truth and great love. Me singing to Luna, oh thank you, thank you, thank you!!  Perfect timing with the full moon!!  

What happened next was pure sweetness!  A tarot card that read Cancel, Clear, Delete. Archangel Michael saying, “Only use positive thoughts.”  I knew, what this meant, the past month has been intense!  I recently had lupines dance my way to remind me of “positive thoughts,” and now all of this love from the angels, fairies, goddess’, luna, mother gaia, solia, Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene.  I am so graciously and magically blessed!!

My heart knows its truth and those who wish to sidetrack me, so not happening!  My heart wins a victory!!  I say to myself, “That a girl!  You KNOW your stuff!” Magical Blessings Business card logo
