Eye of Horus Store Reset

This is what we do when we have no power for the weekend… We rearrange the store. We had planned to expand our Oils section to make room for our Spiritual Oils Line, and we took the opportunity to do much more, following the flow of energy and reorganizing so we can provide better service.

Let us know what you think, and please share!

June Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn

June Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn

Look, up in the sky, it’s Supermoon!

Capricorn Full MoonJune 23rd, 2013 6:33:38 AM 02° 10′ Capricorn

Mead Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, Strawberry Moon, also as the first full moon after the summer solstice it is known as the Thunder Moon or Hay Moon.
For the Chinese, it is the Lotus Moon. The Celts called it the Moon of Horses, Pagans call it the Planting Moon.

What’s all this about a Super Moon?

The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee (which is the moon’s closest point to the earth), fall within an hour of each other. The moon will be full only 20 minutes after it reaches perigee, or its closest point to Earth in its orbit. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. It will be 356,991 kilometers from Earth, within 600 kilometers of its closest possible approach. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014.

Capricorn Full Moon Opposite Cancerian Sun

The Full Moon in Capricorn makes us so eager to prove ourselves, that we may misinterpret the expectations and reactions of others.  We are all a bit more goal-oriented than usual, but should take time to communicate objectively.  Make sure that the goals you’re striving to achieve are the same ones everyone else is envisioning.  We may find ourselves trying too hard, or working at crossed-purposes.  The stress of economic insecurity can make you physically ill, at this point.  This is because you are feeling more attached to home and family right now, and perceived threat to that security hits a little harder than usual..  Be gentle on yourself for a few days.  Don’t push yourself, or stress yourself to the point of detriment.  Use the nurturing energy of [Read more…]

New moon in Gemini

Gemini New MoonPeople have been asking, “Are you sure Mercury isn’t retrograde yet?”

Nope, that’s not happening until the end of June. But Mercury is Square Uranus and as we near our new moon in Gemini, the effects probably feel very similar, with communication misfires.  Here are the pertinent aspects of this lunar phase.

Crazy Communications & Impulsive Insights

Sun conjunct Moon (aka new moon)

At this New Moon in Gemini there is a strong self-awareness.  Variety and polarity is the stuff of life at this point, and you feel distinctly uncomfortable if you are asked to identify yourself with one single direction or opinion. Your curiosity is strong, and you can find meaning in small things that might normally seem insignificant.

Painful memories of miscommunications and feelings of being misunderstood are prevalent now.   At this time, you are seeing multiple aspects of a situation and this manifests as a lack of focus. When you try to communicate, too many possibilities come out at once.  A misunderstanding with someone close to you might trigger some deep reflection.  That’s the key, to reflect and not get sucked below the surface.

You can get caught in a whirlwind of explanations and miscues which only make things worse. Try letting go of some of those complexities until the situation calms itself. Delight is not found in one piece of the puzzle or the other, but the way they interconnect to make a whole. So take a step back from picking out the details and let it all fall into place without your help.

Mercury square Uranus

You might find it difficult to be heard or understood. Thoughts bend in obtuse directions, and it becomes hard to follow your own tangents, let alone someone else’s. (Yes, very similar to Mercury retrograde.) Interruptions abound and frustrate when you are trying to finish what you have to say, or you find yourself talking over others in an attempt to get your own ideas heard.  The result is a cacophony of voices where no one can really hear anyone else.

Be aware it will be easy to alienate people through interrupting or being provocative, or simply coming up with wild ideas which are neither here nor there. You are more open to the unconventional; yet these startling insights are easily misunderstood. It’s better to redirect your impulse to share your personal vision to finding a greater vision which you can share.

Shared Vision

Saturn trine Neptune

Your concern with making dreams real, and bringing visions down to earth is your anchor.  True meaning is found in some form of service in which you sacrifice personal ambition for a universal cause. So get out there, focus on listening and linking together with others to manifest a shared dream.  Fortunately, this aspect has the longest duration after New Moon, so cling to it. (Sun, Moon & Mercury are all relatively quick-paced and will move out of these challenging aspects soon.)

Other than just riding out the next few days and redirecting your attention to a greater vision, you can use a remedy which helps when Mercury is retrograde, it will help this affliction as well. A little Van Van Oil can help smooth out all this mercuric mayhem. Fortunately on June 8th we are launching our new Organic Van Van Oil, so come on down to the Eye to try it out! Okay, shameless pitch, but the timing is perfect, and that’s a planned coincidence. We saw this coming, and we wanted to offer some help.
