Cancer Full MoonOther  names for this December Full moon: Frost Moon, Winter Moon, Long Night’s Moon and Oak Moon

Cancer is the sign for home, which is perfect in this hibernating time of year. But cancer is also liable to indulge in emotions, moods, and concerns for safety. For those who are affected by our lack of sunlight, this can be a challenge as we turn a bit too far inward. But just remember, the solstice has passed, so the days are getting longer.

So how do you deal with this need to nest and feel?

Spiritual Cleansing

Spiritual Cleansing

Turn your emotions and intentions outward, to service; whether it is working on the feng shui of your house to make a more positive atmosphere, creating more time for family and friends, or just coming up with a good budget for the year. This is an ideal time for strengthening your home base, core relationships, and being of service.

The holiday season can be festive and hectic, so now is a perfect time to do a bit of energetic tidying of your home. Break out the sage, basic, lavender or any number of herbs, oils and candles to bless your home, such as this Spiritual Cleansing Blessed Herbal Candle. Whenever you can, open the blinds to let all the sun in, and take some time to be zen like a cat as you sit and soak in whatever warmth and natural light you can get.  Candles can be particularly good in the dark evenings this time of year.

This cancer full moon is also a healer’s moon, as all the care of home-loving cancer is illuminated, especially for healing rifts in family relationships. Remember to care for yourself, take time off, rejuvenate in a spa or even just a long, luxurious bath.

Mercury is not retrograde, but…

Peaceful Home Mojo Oil

Peaceful Home Mojo Oil

Mercury sextile Uranus is one of our strongest aspects right now. It’s energy is all about the unconventional, provocative and surprising, the drawbacks are misunderstandings, usually in the form of rudeness or interrupting others simply because of over-excitement. The solution to this problem is the energy of full moon in cancer, where we concern ourselves more with others. Taking care of others, providing service, making sure all voices are heard.

To ensure everyone stays civil at home, try this Peaceful Home Oil, made from traditional Hoo Doo recipe with essential oils and real botanicals. Anoint a candle with the oil, sprinkle it on your hearth or anywhere you want to create a happy and harmonious atmosphere.  This line of oils takes aromatherapy back to its roots in the immigrant and native american lore of hoodoo.

Labyrinth Open for Walking

The Labyrinth at Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus Labyrinth

The Eye of Horus Labyrinth is available year-round and is open for walking on weekdays from 11am to 5:30pm. A labyrinth is not a maze, there are no forks to chose from, and no dead ends. It is a pattern which is walked, with the end being the center. People walk labyrinths as a meditation, to contemplate a question, as part of a ritual, or as a walking prayer. Labyrinths are multicultural and ancient.

Our labyrinth is painted on the floor of the Inner Sanctum in the back of the store. The Inner Sanctum doubles as our classroom and ritual room, so whenever there isn’t an event, you can walk the labyrinth, though most evenings there is something going on.

Labyrinth open hours can change since the room may be reserved for private use… so please do call before making a trip!  612-872-1292. Anyone can walk the labyrinth, just check in with staff before going back. There is no charge, though donations are cheerfully accepted. Click for Map to Eye of Horus

Rental is available for private events, rituals and meetups, etc. Rates vary depending on whether the event is a public or private event. Contact the Eye for more information.
