Full Moon Gemini Moon Magic

06:27 AM CST – December 6, 2014

The nights are becoming ever longer as the cold settles in with this Gemini Full Cold Moon this December. What to do? Well, with all the astrological influences cranking up the energy, it’s a unique time, and it is perfect for the holidays, because it’s time to party. Thraicie Hawkner and Heather Roan Robbins discuss this wild energy in the latest Moon Magic Video.

The December Full Moon is a Party Moon

It doesn’t hurt that it is right on the cusp of Friday and Saturday, and the full moon energy will carry well into Monday. But you can take party to mean more than one thing. (What did you expect from a Gemini?) The Sun is in Gemini, but the Moon is in Sagittarius so fitting everything into a bigger picture and more global view can be powerful. Take advantage of this time to party with a purpose. Connect, converse, laugh and be aware of how this is a year of change, both personal change and societal change. Get all the details in the latest moon magic video below.

Moon Magic: December 2014 Full Moon in Gemini

With all this energy in the air, your nervous system can get a little fried. Rather than just spark off in all directions, you might want to take time to ground and center your energy. Basically, connect with mama earth. Stones are perfect for this, and hematite, with all of its iron content, is the ultimate grounding stone. For a softer grounding energy, carry a jasper with you. Finally, if you tune into stones, as Thraicie said in the video, Aquamarine can help you shift your focus onto something with more meaning for you rather than just getting caught up in all the wild full moon energy all around.

Songs for the Waning Year

Discover a collection of 22 chants for pagans, nature mystics, Goddess lovers, and those who celebrate the cycles of the year, featuring strong female vocals backed with percussion, guitar, and a choir.

We first got this CD in when T. Thorn Coyle came to the Twin Cities earlier this year.  Chant CD - Sonts for the Waning YearSince then, Songs for the Waning Year and the companion CD, Songs for the Strengthening Sun, have become a couple of our favorites to play in the store.  This is not your old-fashioned dirge-like chant collection. These are songs which invite you to encounter the mystery, celebrate the spirit, and honor deity. Some songs are devotional and contemplative, like the Hecate Chant, and some will get you up on your feet and moving your body, like Osiris Lives.  Others are great for group ritual, like Come All Who Hunger.

The songs on this CD are all written by Sharon Knight and Thorn Coyle, and delivered with a passion that beautifully conveys their love of nature’s cycles.

If you are pagan or goddess oriented and want to lend a fresh voice to your devotions or rituals, then pick up these CDs.  They are fabulous.  Click on the links below for complete track listings and mp3 samples:

This Month: Contemporary Pagans and the Search for Community

Earthly Bodies, Magical Selves Sarah Pike’s engrossing ethnography is the outcome of five years attending neo-pagan festivals, interviewing participants, and sometimes taking part in their ceremonies. Earthly Bodies, Magical Selves incorporates her personal experience and insightful scholarly work concerning ritual, sacred space, self-identity, and narrative. The result is a compelling portrait of this frequently misunderstood religious movement.

Earthly Bodies, Magical Selves explores larger issues in the United States regarding the postmodern self, utopian communities, cultural improvisation, and contemporary spirituality. Pike’s accessible writing style and her nonsensationalistic approach do much to demystify neo-paganism and its followers.

You are invited to attend Prof. Murphy’s BookWyrms Egghead Book of the Month Club discussion in our store on the 2nd Tuesday each month (Earthly Bodies, Magical Selves is our book for the November discussion). Come prepared to discuss the book, already read.
