Playing with some designs for a possible future collab - I'm quite fond of this one cause it's a bit different to my usual designs & I'm stoked it "worked" out symmetrically without using lines or guides...I've always struggled with this & this one just flowed through...whoohoo πŸ’ƒπŸ’•

Here I Am
I will show snippets of my illuminated witchy otherworldly skin
let it bare itself from underneath my clothing
like a gentle whisper escaping from beneath
from within
my soul
out into the world and beyond.

Gorgeous magical morning 🌞 although a little chilly β„πŸŒ™ My hubs woke me up at 4.50 am 😊 and I sat outside all rugged up, next to my "brewing" jar of moon water πŸ˜‰ with a cuppa until Eclipsed Lady Luna vanished behind the mountains....I did try to take a few pics but not having my usual camera and lacking knowledge in photography the camera decided to not shoot at all...eventually after changing settings here & there no idea what I did but she got clicking again πŸ˜‚ sort of πŸ˜„ I probably should learn how to...😏 Either way I feel so lucky & loved every minute of this magical morning ❀ hugs M xx

Cleansing crystals - Before making Moon Water.....Tonight these purposefully picked crystals will be soaking up the Lunar Eclipse Energy. They have now all been put in a glass jar &  filled with fresh water & will soon be placed outside in an open spot.... I will be using this amplified and energized Moon water for various magic work (not taken internally though) for releasing & clearing blockages. I have made a list and intention for each crystal and what it's purpose is for this charged moon water. πŸŒ›πŸŒπŸŒœ
.
Hoping to get up early to see the Lunar Eclipse which will be at Total Eclipse around 5.30 am with the Maximum Eclipse at 6.20-ish am on the east coast of Oz....but I do have a big mountain in the exact direction the moon is setting so fingers crossed...πŸŒžπŸ‘Œ
.
Anyone else been having difficulty sleeping?? Haven't slept much at all for a few days...Lots of dreams and visions...not sure what they all mean but my mind's been busy that's for sure! Really feeling this Full moon in Aquaria! 😴

How have you been fairing? Big hugs and love πŸ˜˜πŸ’• M xx

Been in hibernation mode, in need of quiet & space & time out from social media and consequently ended up spending a lot of time in my lil creative cave. 🌞🎨 Drawing and painting and working on a few projects....And it's been really lovely. Although also a little lonely. Missed being on here and you guys! πŸ˜™πŸ’•
.
Thanks to the eclipse season that begun on Fri 13th in Cancer, I've also been busy decluttering my home and spaces including my computer....although in the process of deleting 50 gb worth of no longer needed files, I accidentally deleted a major folder containing a big project I was working on...hours and hours of work...gone just like that! 😨.....(my daughter just reminded me that I might have backed it up so here's fingers crossed it's on another hard drive!) πŸ˜† hmm come to think of it...better back up my computer again re Mercury going retrograde from today until 19 Aug....πŸ˜„
.
How have you been? What is the current "theme" for you?
Do you feel creative or in a bit of a slump?
Do you feel extroverted or introverted?
Do you feel energized or a bit tired?
What is currently keeping you preoccupied?
Would LOVE to hear what's going on with you! 🌞❀

Last Quarter Moon (in Aries) today πŸŒ—πŸŒ“
.
And this was my attempt at drawing/painting moon phases...and it turned out a little bit of a messy project as I experimented with salt on watercolour πŸ˜‚...lol #workinprogress
.
This moon phase (waning) period is perfect for letting stuff go - purge burn throw or shake it off 🌞 but make sure you get plenty of rest too as this period also calls for going inward, resting & taking extra care of yourself ❀ M xx

Mars Retrograde has well and truly begun & will take us through the intense Eclipse period of July & Aug. And with 5 planets currently in retrograde (Rx) and the Full Moon in Cap tomorrow there's a lot going on. πŸ˜₯

Love this exerpt from Kerrie @bohomofo re Mars Rx in Aquarius...
.
"Well directed anger is the architect of change. Knowledge is power. Understanding the how and why of your anger and then being able to channel it to make a difference is a fuqing superpower.

If we are to fight the good fight then we must first taste the flames that rise from within us. Time to intimately know and learn how to consciously control your anger with Uncle Mars. School's in from now." - @bohomofo
.
.
Although this period is a great opportunity for diving deep into our shadows (if you feel up to it) the best plan of "action" is to not take things too seriously, respond instead of reacting and making sure we look after ourselves in all areas - body, mind and soul! πŸ˜™β€ M xx

"Gratitude is not a passive response to something we have been given, gratitude arises from paying attention, from being awake in the presence of everything that lives within and without us." - @davidjwhyte 🌸

Remembering in amongst the busyness of doing, creating, making better, striving, working, healing....THIS moment.
.
Noticing my breath, my fingers typing, reading these words, the cold air around me, the sound of the birds outside, the importance of this precious moment and the privilege to be able to do so.
.
Grateful for all that I have. Grateful for who I am. Grateful for it all - the lessons, the challenges & failures, the wins & achievements.
.
Grateful for your presence and your constant love and support. Thank you! #imgrateful

What are you most grateful for? Right now? πŸŒžπŸ’– M πŸ˜™πŸ’• xx

Heard this song a little while ago but the verse keeps popping up in my head...I guess it's not a bad "mantra" to have on repeat! ❀ The lyrics to this song are powerful & sends such an important message (Queen by @JessieJ) πŸ‘‘
.
It's also a subject that seems to be coming up a lot lately. And it's definitely something we need to keep talking about and bringing up! There's a lot of damage and a long way to go...but lets promise ourselves that we will work towards rebuilding our scarred relationships we may have with our bodies, to accept, to love and to nurture our bodies in whichever way WE feel to be the right way for us! My body, my skin, my choice! πŸ’ͺπŸ’–
.
Oh and Happy New Moon in Gemini our talkative and communicative twins...Although I'm finding it hard to both talk and write lately with my brain still in foggyland...these words came through this arvo πŸŒžπŸ’­
.
This New Moon in Gemini πŸŒ™β™Š
.
May I talk to my body with love and affection
May I treat myself with respect
May I listen and be guided by my body's wisdom
And tune into my intuition and let her lead the way
.
May I write my own lyrics and use my voice to sing my song
May I learn how to dance to the beat of my own drum
May my words and tone soothe and uplift
and my body move in time with the rhythm of my heartbeat
May the power of my body & voice empower & inspire
May this New Moon help me plant the seeds to manifest all that I wish and all that I desire πŸŒ±πŸŒŸπŸŒˆπŸ’–

I was aiming to only make one card but it turned into a bit of an obsession 😏 ....A little side project I started a few weeks ago before I got ill....Feels great to slowly be getting back into this most "funnest" project to date, bit by bit as I get my energy & brain power back 🌠
.
What began as one card for Saturn to be used for intention setting turned into all the Planets, Asteroids, Sun Signs, Elements and Moon Phases (to come).....and so much fun!!! πŸ˜€πŸ’ƒπŸŒ 
.
They all still need a lot more work, but so far there's 34 cards on 300 gsm watercolour paper which has been so exciting to use 🌈
.
Not sure where this project will take me but I'm just gonna go with the flow and stay open to possibilities. πŸŒžπŸŒΈπŸ’•

"When your world moves too fast,
and you lose yourself in the chaos,
introduce yourself
to each color of the sunset.
Reacquaint yourself
with the earth beneath your feet.
Thank the air that surrounds you
with every breath you take.
Find yourself
in the appreciation of life."

An impromptu outing the other day that was tiring but so magical. When I close my eyes I can still feel the presence of this space. I know that it's something I need to do more often...spending time amongst trees, earth & rocks...Although my favourite has been ocean & beach I realised a little while ago how much I miss the forest and bushland & r o c k s! And after this particular day it really hit how much this  n e e d s  to be part of my self care....#earthenergy #soulmedicine

Would love to hear if getting out in nature is something you do often? Do you incorporate nature as part of your self care? What part of nature makes you  f e e l  grounded & rejuvinated? Where do you find your "appreciation of life"? ❀
