January’s Full “Wolf” Moon
Monday, January 1, 2018 at
6;24 pm PST
7:24 pm MST
9:24 p.m. EDT

Welcome to January, the first month of the new year. On Monday, January 1st we celebrate the Wolf Moon. The Native Americans named this moon the Wolf Moon because during the long dark nights the wolves were hungry and would often howl outside the lodges of the people. Other names for this full moon include the Cold Moon, Winter Moon (Colonial), Holiday Moon (China), Quiet Moon (Celtic), Ice Moon (neo Pagan), Disting Moon, Moon of Little Winter and the Chaste Moon.

This year our January moon is in Cancer.  This may be an emotional time since Cancer deals with things on the emotional level. One of the keys to this moon lies in listening. If you can be a good listener you may learn some things about yourself and your own inner workings as well as helping someone else. We may also feel the need to stay close to home or if we are away from home become homesick. House blessings, comfort foods, comfy pajamas may also be on the docket.  This is also a wonderful time for introspection so don’t be afraid to get to know yourself or your Goddess a little better! This moon is a good time for magical workings involving hearth and home, as well as inner exploration, spiritual advancement and developing closer relations with your chosen deities.

The January moon traditionally honored the Chinese deity Ch’ang-O,  who was the goddess of the bedchamber and the protector of children. Other goddesses for January  include Freya, Inanna, Hera, Sinn and Sarasvati. To honor this moon try wearing the colors white, black and silver and adorning yourself with hematite, garnet, jet, onyx or chrysoprase.

The Full Moon itself offers  powerful energy for rituals of prophecy, divination and protection. Any spell-work that requires extra energy, such as finding a new job or healing serious conditions, is best begun during the full moon. Also for love, gaining sacred knowledge, legal matters, attracting money and prophetic dreams.

Bright Blessings for a Magickal Week!

Being Alive Is The Meaning: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

Life is without meaning.
You bring the meaning to it.
The meaning of life is
whatever you ascribe it to be.
Being alive is the meaning.
– Joseph Campbell

1231: As the old year comes to a close we are receiving a message and a  big hug from our Angels and the Ascended Masters.

“You are amazing beings and you have grown in ways you can’t even begin to imagine over the past year.  Enter into this new cycle by shifting your thoughts to a new level of love and peace. This will be essential to your continued growth in the new year.   Stay focused and confident and above all continue to have faith in yourself. By living your truth and claiming your authentic self you are fully capable of creating the life you desire for both you and your loved ones. Creation begins with you and spreads to those around you and continues outward like ripples in a pond. Don’t be afraid to enter the new year with a new outlook on life. We are here and ready to help you all you need do is ask.”

The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to focus on our goals. He teaches us how to avoid distractions and that sometimes it is pure stubbornness that propels us forward. The Hindu goddess Kali teaches us that decisive action in the face of change keeps us headed in the right direction and Archangel  Michael is there to offer support as we navigate our path. Our Sacred Stones for today are:
 Rose Quartz to promote healing, and inner peace.
Amethyst is a stone of protection. It enhances spiritual awareness and calms or stimulates the mind depending on what we need at that time.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Radiating Joy: Cat’s Angel Message for December 30 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

My greatest service to others is living happily,
and radiating happiness and joy to those around me.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

1230: Today we are receiving a  big Divine hug and a message from the Ascended Masters.  ” You are an amazing being with so many gifts to share.  Do not be afraid to share your love, light and creative talents with others.”  The world  needs more teachers, positive role models and light-bringers. Each of us has so much to share as well as the ability  to create joy and happiness into our lives and the lives of others. The Universe is at your call so make your requests, follow your inner guidance and take the necessary steps to create an amazing new reality!”

 Let’s keep working with the new age Ascended Master Vywamus.  He helps lightworkers,  and with all aspects of our Life Purpose, Inspiration, discovering our talents. He is an aspect of Sanat Kumara who can assist us in overcoming our own ego so that we can give freely of our true self. Archangel Jophiel surrounds us with beauty and helps us to see beauty in ourselves and others and the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin teaches us about compassion. Our Sacred Stone for today are:
Rose Quartz to promote love, kindness and compassion.
Gold Sheen Obsidian helps us to set our ego aside so that our authentic self can come forward.
Sunstone brings joy and helps us to access our intuitive ability.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thinking For Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for December 29 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

People everywhere enjoy believing things that they know are not true.
It spares them the ordeal of thinking for themselves
and taking responsibility for what they know.
– Brooks Atkinson

1229: As we  start to close out the month of December and the old year we are being given this gentle reminder. By working with the Universe and it’s helpers we learn that we are powerful creators in our own right. While we regularly receive assistance and guidance from people, our spiritual helpers and through opportunities presented to us, in reality WE are the  creating force that ultimately makes things happen.  It’s a combination of faith and self confidence that boosts our manifestation power and helps us create a new reality. Today we are being asked to embrace and acknowledge our divine partnership as well as our power to create for ourselves. Think BIG, Dream BIG and keep CREATING!

 
Work with Archangel Jophiel today. Call upon her to promote a more loving relationship between Spirit and yourself. The Celtic goddess Brigid helps us to nurture new growth and to plant the thought seeds that will bring about great things and the new age Ascended Master Vywamus helps us look within and discover new talents that will aid the creation process.  Our Sacred Stone  for today is  Kunzite.. This high vibration stone can help to create a balanced partnership with the Universe and opens your heart more fully to Divine love.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Dec. 29, 2017 “Choices and Perspective”

Happy Friday,

Today’s thought is just a reminder how we see life is about perspective. As we  get ready to usher 2017 to the door take time to look back on the past year. There will be things that didn’t work or go your way and that’s OK! You will also find plenty of things that did. There’s a choice of perspective here. So how will you remember the past year and what will you take with you into the New Year? Just something to think about…….

Be safe this New Years eve, I want to all of you back here on Monday!

Bountiful Gifts: Cat’s Angel Message for December 28 , 2017

  Bountiful Gifts: Cat’s Angel Message for December 28 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your lif

I am open to receiving the generous gifts of Spirit.
I hold no expectations or demands on the form, the timing,
or the color of the wrapping on the bountiful gifts of Spirit
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

1228: Abundance is something that people ask for quite often. It comes in many forms like love, friendship, spiritual, material gain and money. It also comes from sources both expected and unexpected. There are several things to remember about generating abundance:

  • In order for it grow we must acknowledge what we have with appreciation.
  • We must do our part to make it happen. The Angels will help but they won’t do it for us.
  • Be open to both giving and receiving.
  • Don’t fixate on on area or one thing. These kind of demands actually limit how the Universe can help you. While it may happen eventually you will be missing out on a lot more than you realize.

Today the Universe is asking us to think about HOW we ask for blessings of abundance. Instead of making stipulations try asking for “Abundance on all levels”. This allows us to receive more blessings instead of just one. By staying open to all the possibilities it stimulates a steady flow of good things which makes us richer on all levels. Remember………….. don’t sell yourself short or shut yourself off!

The Hindu god Ganesh helps to remove all obstacles from our path to receiving abundance. He also shows us the importance of getting out of our own way to promote positive flow. Green Tara helps us with emergency aid. There times when we really need this kind of help with supplying the basic necessities. Archangel Raziel helps us during the manifestation process and the Ascended Master Buddha teaches us how to achieve the balance that is necessary to keep things flowing smoothly. Our Sacred Stone for today is Sunstone. This stone  provides a link to benevolent gods of luck and good fortune. It helps to increase  feelings of self worth and overall confidence while encouraging optimism.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Dec. 28, 2017 “You Can’t Fix Everything”

Happy Thursday,

These are some pretty wise words from Hemingway. People worry, it’s just human nature but it’s how we deal with it that matters. Too often we allow ourselves to get stuck in things we have no control over. As we continue to wrestle with it is consumes our time and our energy. While we’re distracted life passes us by and we miss out on so much. The key is in knowing what we can fix and what we can’t. If you can’t control it let it go or set it aside. This frees up your energy for more important things and before you know it those worries have either resolved themselves or simply disappeared.
