Welcome to February
Hearts, flowers, chocolate . . . those are the words most associated with the month of February. If you are a "northerner," snow is another descriptor for the second month of a new calendar year. Love it or not, all of those words best describe February. Of course, we have President's Day, Lincoln's birthday, the astrological family of Aquarius and Pisces, and this year Ash Wednesday will be celebrated Wednesday, February 22. For me, personally, a number is added to my years on Earth Mother . . . whew, there sure are piling up!
Sunday, February 5 at 1:59 p.m. the next Full Moon, often referred to as Snow Moon, will offer us the opportunity to Reflect and Release what has occurred in your life since the New Moon on January 21. The Full Moon invites us to surrender to a heightened sense of emotionality. Relationships may close, old habits and cycles may change and shift. Of course, whatever happens is completely up to You! Everything is about our intentions! Remember, after reflection and releasing comes your opportunity to Receive whatever your heart desires. Be mindful and pay attention to your thoughts, they do create your reality! Then on Sunday, February 19 at 2:06 a.m. when the New Moon appears, you can have a clear sense of what you want to plan and plant to replace what has been released.
The Clan Mother for February is Wisdom Keeper, and she offers ways for us to consider what our experiences have taught us in order to grow in wisdom. All too often we stare at our past and carry those memories; that can become a real burden to carry. The important teaching is to Honor the Truth of your lifetime and use the teachings you receive as your walk along the Sacred Path of Life.
Deepening into Wisdom Circle: As a reminder, each month this year we will be focusing on how to "Claim our Gifts." Last month we learned how to "Learn the Truth" with the Clan Mother, Talks with Relations. We shared some stories of how nature can be some of our greatest teachers. By utilizing these teachers, we can become clear in order to learn and identify our gifts are. On Thursday, February 16 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. Using the teachings of Wisdom Keeper, we will learn how to Honor the Truth, and claim our gifts, in order to grow in Wisdom. We hope you will join us on this journey! All you need is an open heart, blanket for your lap, a journal, and willingness to grow in Wisdom!
Community Event: As promised last Spring, we are offering an afternoon retreat to learn more of the ways to use the Mandala to better understand the "workings" of life. On Saturday, March 4, from 1-4:00 p.m. we will gather at the Dancing Flame Medicine Lodge to glean a clear understanding of what and how each of the seven sacred directions can be used to provide a rhythm by which all inhabitants of Earth Mother can live in harmony. Whether you have read either book or not, this retreat will provide the framework for beginning a new round on the Medicine Wheel of Life. Read more about this on our Community Events link: Using the Mandala to Walk a sacred Path with intention and purpose, will equip you with some tools to make 2023 a year full of richness and meaning!
Now, go get that chocolate, flowers and cards for someone you love, and make certain you are on that list!
From my heart to yours, Vicky
