February’s Full “Quickening” Moon

February 8/9, 2020

11:33 pm PST (Feb 8th) / 12:33 am MST (Feb 9th) / 2:33 am EDT (Feb 9th)
On February 18th/9th we celebrate the “Quickening Moon”. The moon will be sitting in the constellation of Leo which brings passion, courage and renewed energy.  Other names for this moon are the Snow Moon,  Trappers Moon, Budding Moon, Moon When Trees Pop, Ice Moon, Storm Moon, Hunger Moon, Horning Moon, Big Winter Moon. The first signs of spring are beginning to show and you actually feel the earth waking up. The energy is dense and slow, it’s a time for new life and rebirth. At this time of year, people are tired of being cooped up. They miss the light and warmth of the sun and like the sleeping plants find themselves reaching for a new beginning.

The moon will be sitting in the constellation of Leo which brings passion, courage and renewed energy. This is a good time for magical workings that focus on personal advancement and achievement. On a personal level work on plans for your future. What do you hope for and what dreams do you hold inside yourself? These are the things to consider as you set goals for yourself. The key is to be willing to accept responsibility for past mistakes and be mature enough to let them go and move on. Dare to dream and hope as you look into the future.

To honor this moon try wearing colors in shades of blue and purples and adorn yourself with Sacred Stones like Rose Quartz, Amethyst and earthy Jaspers.
Blessings,

Cat

Better Conditions: Cat’s Angel Message for February 1, 2020

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals. Our keywords are “I CAN”.


Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living In better conditions. – Hafiz


21: This month is all about stepping up and believing in yourself. Start by embracing the “I CAN” and “I AM” consciousness to jump-start the new cycle. Stay focused on what you want to create for yourself and be open to exploring new avenues for growth and transformation. Your challenge lies in letting go of outdated beliefs to make room for the new things headed our way.

Remember that tomorrow is Imbolc which symbolizes new beginnings and growth which makes this a great time to start planting new Thought Seeds. Sow your inner garden now, and tend to the seeds you planted last month. Be clear about what you want to accomplish. No need to be too grandiose in your plans as sometimes starting small is better as it provides us with more and better options. If you need direction simply ask the Universe and the angels for additional guidance.


Today’s Spiritual Guides include: Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process. In turn, this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive.

The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

The Mayan goddess Ixchel helps to get our creative juices flowing by breaking through the barriers we have erected that are blocking our progress. Call on her if you are starting something new. ” Clear your mind and allow the creative source to fill you. New things are waiting for you to embrace them!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

 Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward.  It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

Galena helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past that can get in our way during the manifestation process.

Okenite helps clear away obstacles and teaches us the important lesson that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Stepping Stones: Cat’s Angel Message for February 1, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want. – Marsha Sinetar


21:  This month is all about stepping up and believing in yourself. Take your faith and confidence to the next level by embracing the “I CAN” and “I AM” consciousness to jump start the new month. Stay focused on what you want to create for yourself and be open to exploring new avenues for growth and transformation. Your challenge lies in the letting go of outdated beliefs. We must make room for the new things headed our way. Remember that tomorrow is Imbolc which symbolizes new beginnings and growth which makes this a great time to start planting  new Thought Seeds.  Sow your inner garden now, and tend to the seeds you planted last month and be be clear about what you want to accomplish.  No need to be too grandiose in your plans as sometimes starting small is better and provides us with more and better options. If you need direction ask the Universe and the angels for additional guidance.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations and for selecting the best thought seeds for this cycles new crop. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back (Like out dated beliefs thought patterns etc.). Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And, Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for the day are Mossy Agate aka the gardener’s stone, which  helps us to nurture our inner garden. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways and Okenite which can be used to help clear away old habits and beliefs.It teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when  we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Inner Journey:

ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Mental, emotional and physical events are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“I went to the root of things, and found nothing but Him alone.”
— Mira Bai

A Note from the Universe

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you…

You get as many “do-overs” as you like. Of course, you never know you’re living a “do-over” until it’s over.

There are lots of reasons for wanting a “do-over.” Most of all, people want another chance to do things they were afraid to do the first time, and to say things they were afraid to say. Oddly enough, it’s not their mistakes they want to rework, but their “unused” minutes.

Yeah, pretty nifty, but you should know that it isn’t any easier the next time, and because no two ever go exactly the same, the gifts, opportunities, and loves of one never appear the same way again.
So all in all, it’s better to live as if there are no “do-overs,” so that you won’t need one. But I thought I’d share this with you anyway to work in the bits about fear, mistakes, and how precious today’s opportunities really and truly are.

Commitment

“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”

-Vincent van Gogh
Are we committed to living life to its fullest? What does that mean to each one of us personally? How does that show up in our daily routines? I think what van Gogh was saying was that commitment has to be whole-hearted. Whatever it is, whether it’s a friendship, a career, a marriage, or our spiritual pursuits – if we’re in it with all our heart, then we’re demonstrating the importance that it has in our lives. And whatever it is, will grow and bloom and thrive with our commitment to it.

-Lissa Coffey
