The Full Moon brings everything out of the darkness. All while we find ourselves in the deep waters of Scorpio season, Taurus is now bringing in some grounding energy.
Every Full Moon delivers the aligned moment to look at where in life we are manifesting and receiving. This phase of our lunar cycle symbolizes the harvest season of summer. It is when our manifestations come through. On the flipside, it could also point us in the direction of growth and what we are not yet fully embodying in order to receive.
This Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse and final Eclipse event of this season. Eclipse season is a time for transformation.
Overall, the Eclipses are here to create massive change. It supercharges the lunar phases in such a way that it creates chaos (or what seems to be chaos at first) for clarity to come in later. Expect a season of transformation. And transformation that occurs a lot more quicker in a short period of time. Learn more about the Eclipse Season here.
This is what Taurus is calling us to do this full moon. The bull woman, stubborn in her nature, persistent in her being, she desires stability more than anything else. When she has the room to unravel her being and move around in her cautious manner. Ruled by the planet Venus, making her a warm, gentle and loving being when her energies are balanced. Within her is the element of Earth.
The element of earth is the physical. It is firm and sustainable. Also represents the Wise Woman and the inner Witch. Our physical being alike is a vehicle and vessel for abundance.
Scorpio - Taurus, polar-opposites
The Taurus is the polar-opposite of our current sun sign, scorpio. as everything has two sides to the coin. Both fixed and feminine signs, however their characteristics are being fueled from two different ends.
Where Scorpio strives to unravel the spiritual world and the unknown, Taurus strives in the material world, as she loves to surround herself with beautiful objects and personal possessions.
The body part that is ruled by taurus is the neck and throat which might explain why they are oftentimes very communicative and well-articulated beings. Having a sore throat around taurus days might point to a blocked throat chakra and the possibility of you needing to speak your truth.
The sun is shining its light onto the moon which is reflecting back to us on Earth. As the moon represents emotions, intuition, the unknown and feminine energies, she is showing us exactly where we can expand as conscious beings.
It is our invitation to connect with our physicality and stay anchored in our energy while proceeding to uncover the deepest layer of our soul.
Be gentle with yourself and be ok with sometimes not always having all the answers. How can you ground your energy in the midst of the transformative Scorpionic season?
Shamanic Moon Ritual
My ritual for you this Eclipse season is to refrain from consciously manifesting and to be more in the moment. What does life have to offer for you at this moment? Where have you been busy in the doing and neglecting being?
Recharge your batteries, allow the lessons to unfold and be in your own company. I have a few ways you can connect with the Earth element this season of Taurus that I would like to share with you here.
Connect with Earth and come back to your body:
♉︎ Medicine Movement: Move your body, your hips and dance in a way that feels pleasurable for you.
♉︎ Shamanic Shaking: Shake your entire body for at 5-10 minutes regularly to shamanic drums.
♉︎ Activate all of your senses: Enjoy the pleasures of the material plane: good food, herbs, incenses, essential oils, crystals.
♉︎ Nature Walks: Go for meditative walks in nature, listen to nature's whispers. Be still, listen, and feel. Look out for hidden messages of symbolism.

The deepest secrets and brightest hopes for the coming year begin to unravel in the darkness of November, and our much-loved Smells Like Spells brand is ready to share with you tips to follow during this important phase.
It is a time for concentration, self-reflection, cleansing and paying back the last of this year's debts. The Wheel of the Year is heading towards significant changes and expects great preparation from us. Discipline is very important at this time, so plan your time and use your energy wisely, trying to prioritise the closure of this year's most important projects and issues. The results and achievements you are seeking will become an important ground for success in the New Year.
The first big challenge of the darkest days begins on 8 November with the lunar eclipse that will affect our lives for almost a month after its passage. This magical event could create a lot of obstacles in your financial life, your moving plans or divorce processes, so it is best to avoid any major decisions of this kind during this period, as the consequences could be unpleasant.
The recipe for this candle was based on old customs, witchcraft and the belief that plants and aromas have healing and magical powers that connects to people’s subconsciousness. The recipe for this candle was developed with an intention to bring financial luck and abundance to those who strive for it. A touch of magic wouldn’t hurt!
The three ingredients used in the recipe for the FREYR candle are Patchouli, Ambergris and Myrrh.
Patchouli because since ancient times people believed this herb contains the energy of money and attracts wealth. It is a very potent plant that nourishes, invigorates, induces feelings of power, determination and self-confidence.
Ambergris because this herb has long been considered a symbol of luxury and power, it is one of the most prized ingredients of perfume. Its smell is characterised by unique invigorating evening musk aroma with oriental notes.
Myrrh, because it was used in ancient recipes to calm irritations and restore balance in thoughts, clearing up the headspace from non-essential details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditations and to help you concentrate and think clearly.
The candle holder is made from recycled cut jar glass and the candle is made from pure soy wax. Inside the box you will get a detailed description of the scented candle’s purpose; a simple meditation/affirmation ritual that may help you to create a protective shield for you and your home, a description of the aromatherapeutic effect of the different scents;
An old and very interesting ritual that you can introduce into your life if you get the patchouli essential oil or the essential blend Freyr, is to add a few drops to your wallet, to count all your money from the highest note down and to take out all old receipts so you create more energy for your money to double and triple."
