New Moon Blessings!

I apologize for this getting out a day late. I am away for a little get away and there is limited internet.

We are having a family celebration so I hope you will understand that there will be no written blog to go with this image.

I dedicated my afternoon yesterday to get this done and my hope is that you will enjoy it even without my added thoughts.

Here is the view off our cottage deck !  I forgot to add the image... here it is....

 



Sending much love and joy,

Sha*

Full Moon in Pisces (Water) with the Sun in Virgo (Earth)

Higher Consciousness, Dream State, High Intuitiveness, Spiritually Elevated, Magical and Mystical.
Perfect time to really get in touch with yourself and the spiritual realm to seek guidance. Quest for Higher Meaning & Divine Inspiration.

Sun opposite Neptune (Tues)..Full Moon in the sign of Pisces is conjunct Neptune Wednesday.
Neptune rules Pisces...this strong influence of Neptune increases sensitivity in and around everything. .

Pisces/Neptune brings you in touch with your psychic abilities, spirituality, higher consciousness, creative forces within, being of service.. your soul calling. Openings for deep connection to the sacred divine and to the collective. There is sense of compassion and super sensitivity creating beautiful opportunity to focus on how to best serve humanity in our own way

Mercury goes direct Tues as well. This means it is stationary, an opportunity to go deep within, review  and plan for final months of the year.

As this time of deep sensitivity & emotions it is so beneficial to pay attention to how you are feeling and stay in the moment. Dream state can make you feel disconnected from reality – do what you can to get grounded, while open to divine inspiration... take extra care of self and make time to meditate, get in nature, be creative, be inspired and inspire. With Mercury stationary it is important to be clear and grounded when communicating during this very sensitive time. Sun in Virgo helps with grounding.
 
...Which all leads to my moon meditation. The heart carries our deepest intelligence, our deepest connection to spirit. Whenever I start any creative endeavor, I trust in the outcome because I know I am truly in my heart space when I create. My intention always leads me... but really I have no idea where I will end up... like when I do my moon meditations. In the end there are always surprises and I see them as magical happenings.

A couple of days ago I was tapping into the aspects of this full moon and the image of the brain in the heart came to me... so I was led to draw the brain inside the heart. Any more than that was a complete mystery.

The heart knows before the brain knows. It sends the message to the brain but often the ego or conditioning overrides the heart's truth. The creative part of our brain is on the right and the logical part on the left. I made the orientation of this brain image from above with the front of the head facing the large eye to invite in clarity. There is beauty & strength in both sides of the brain and when we are in balance we use both in conjunction and harmony of each other.

In trust I started with what came to me.. which led me further... to bring in the balance (yin yang) symbol and to connect the sections of brain (I covered the 4 main lines of the brain with a line of rope all connecting to the center – the balance ...unifying the creative, the logical, the mind and the heart... what happened next was such fun and magical... a peace sign transpired before my eyes! This was not planned but such a clear message. The Heart, Mind and Spirit aligned... Our Soul's desires are clear... We are in a state of peacefulness. Divinely inspired we create our reality. 

Another unplanned synchronicity is that the yin yang symbol represents location of the pineal gland!
There is more infused into this meditation but I will invite you to seek and find your own messages.

Each of us is responsible for our own part in a world we wish to create. What inspires you? What brings you joy? What makes you feel really alive? What matters to you? Play with the image as little or as much as you wish... write intentions wishes, dreams, prayers, mantras around the heart and in the space of the brain. I suggest grounding &  breathing into your heart center first. Go outside and be with it...and add colour to invite the insights and alchemy of your creative heart! Then be open to receive the wonder of what shows up for you!

I kindly invite you to my facebook page Art Of Sha for support of my creations with likes, comments and shares. It is greatly appreciated and helps me share my soulwork with more people. 

In Joy, From My Creative Heart,
Sha*

This Leo new moon window is a time of endings and beginnings supercharged with a total solar eclipse.
There is also a fire grand trine happening and mercury retrograde and so much more...

With all the information available out there about this new moon eclipse I wanted to focus only on my own intentions in this image. It is infused with powerful symbolism, meanings and intention that is very personal and a gift from my heart to you during this intense, transformative time.

I am having a great deal of difficulty putting into words what I wish to say about it except that it carries the power of love, potential and possibility and my personal power of 3 symbol encased in the heart of creative fire.

Leo the Lion strongly faces the future...  representing the power of potential & unlimited possibility, knowing and trusting in the self and the universe.

The eye of the lion looks up aware of universal happenings and our connection to everything that is happening at this time... some of us conscious and some not. 

The lions mane emanates the flames of fire.... Leo being a fire sign

The symbol inside the heart carries the power of 3. The number 3 presents itself to me often. This symbol came to me while working on my own soul portrait this spring.
I use it here to represent the sun, moon and earth connected to a central point (the eclipse) encased in the triangle... the fire grand trine happening (harmony) encased in a circle... the circle of life.. (the universe)... encased in the heart..the container of LOVE holding everything together = Connection to our True Power from within where anything and all is possible.

The heart's fire sends a large center flame to the space above representing the future... the self and the collective consciousness transformed, activated & enlightened in the highest frequencies of love.

HEAL the past, LIVE & LOVE in the present, CREATE the future. 

I send love and blessings humbly with no other explanations, descriptions or insights at this time.
My heart is full...my brain is foggy...

Like, comments, & shares at Art Of Sha are sincerely appreciated.
They support of my creative heart and help me reach more people.

In Joy,
Sha*

Today we are experiencing the Full Moon in Aquarius and a Lunar Eclipse.

The full moon shines light on what is coming full circle in our lives including heightened realizations & manifestations whether they be the culmination of events of the previous month, year or lifetime(s)

During this time we are invited to let go and purge. Any full moon cycle accentuates our emotions and this one is supercharged by the occurring eclipse.

Aquarius, the water bearer is actually an air sign while the sun is in Leo a fire sign. Air fuels fire and with the intensity of this lunar eclipse things could get hot!

Aquarius is forward thinking...looking into the future, going against conformity of social and cultural expectations. Ruled by Uranus the planet of confidence, inspiration, breakthroughs and surprises....

My moon meditations don't always present themselves to me fully but usually I have some idea, feeling or message prior to setting pen to paper, yet nothing seemed to be easily coming through for this one. 

I let it go, still I was plainly aware that the image in my mind had remained blank by yesterday afternoon. Then clear as a bell it was presented to me. I heard it so loud  “Phoenix!” in the midst of carrying out some regular household chores. 
At the time I did not realize the significance of this... until I sat down and started to create. 

The phoenix represents air and fire simultaneously and of course rebirth. The big message that is coming through for me is that we are all rising from the ashes of the past – each and everyone of us whether we are conscious of it or not. There are big gateways open right now for growth, healing and many ah ha moments.

As the cosmic tide turns we do well to stay in Leo love and compassion for ourselves first. From here it is with more ease and grace that we stay in the state of unconditional love towards others while being open to learn from what is being presented to us. 

Be authentic and true to yourself with the courage to shine that inner fire of Leo yet be open to breakthroughs and the unexpected. Remember to breathe your love and creative heart into all that fire!

Wow... LEO, LEO, LEO!!!

Welcome this New Moon in Leo with an open heart and you will be on fire! Ha Ha!

There are so many astrological aspects happening right now.. I am going to simplify it. It is all about the POWER! Your own personal POWER that comes from the inner fire of your heart.

Right now the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury and the North Node are all in Leo. The full moon happening on Aug 7 on the Leo/Aquarius axis is a lunar eclipse and there is another new moon in Leo happening Aug 21 which is also the big solar eclipse! On top of all of that we have the Lion's Gate on the Aug 8. Super WOW! Today, the sun and moon are both at 0 degrees of Leo which is the alpha and omega point, the beginning and the end.. the zero point. MAGICAL! There is also a grand trine happening that brings good fortune & abundance in support of your intentions!

Leo – Masculine, Fixed Sign (Stabilizing Effect) The King, The Regal Ruler, Leadership, The Heart... Bold, leading from the Heart while wearing it all out there for everyone to see, honest, trustworthy, loyal, generous, Creative Fire Energy, fun loving.

Sun – The Planet of Self & Ruler of Leo! Masculine Life Force Energy, Center of our Universe, The Bringer of Light, Our Star Light!
The sun gives strength to the other planets. The sun represents our conscious mind. It is the guiding force, it is vitality, it is the light, source of power... our strengths, our attributes.

Moon – Feelings & emotions, unconscious, the inner child, receptivity, imagination.
New moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle and time to put our focus and intentions into what we wish to bring forth for the next month.

Mars – Action, innovation, imagination, implementation, courage, determination

Mercury – Communication, the mind, reasoning, evaluation, learning, skills

North Node – The spiritual development called for in this life, spiritual life lessons – the keys to fulfillment and happiness.

So... now is the time to feel into this energy... step up and step into our power, our mission, our purpose.... boldly with courage and trust. To be the star of our own universe, (our life story), shine our light so brightly, to lead but also remembering we are one star in a cosmos of stars... we are a piece, we are part of the bigger picture... part of the community of stars. Together we can light up the darkness of the night!

Harness your inner POWER, use your gifts creatively, spark your magic, from the heart...speak your truth knowing that that you are fully supported. Leo magic is all around us. This is big, potent creative firey energy... so harness it wisely. If you sit back this energy can show up in an explosive manner, creating drama. Time to be brave and strut your stuff baby! And have fun doing it!

As you can see my moon meditation is all about the Majestic all powerful Lion! My intention is that in colouring the page you will feel into your own power, your unique gifts and talents and get clear on your creative fire for this amazing month ahead.

In case you didn't receive my email a few days ago, I just want to mention my upcoming Goddess Gathering Painting Retreat happening in October. There is an Earlybird $100 Discount until July 31st. You can find out more HERE

Please like, share and comment on my fanpage Art of Sha. This helps me reach out to more people.

From My Creative Heart to Yours,
Brilliant New Moon Blessings and Much Love,
Sha*

The opposing energies of the Full Moon in Capricorn and Sun in Cancer makes an interesting combination possibly causing intense feelings, confusion, contradiction and conflict. Incidents & accidents may occur without notice.
Personally I have been feeling the intensity and yesterday I found myself flat on the ground ...literally.
My dog took off after a deer while I was walking him on his lead. Unfortunately I was not paying attention... not being present with our experience together. I was not attending to his needs fully by not being present and hung on while he charged towards the deer. I went down and he continued to pull Today I am feeling battered and still a little shaken. I thought I may have sprained my arm but the pain eased somewhat today so I cancelled heading off to the hospital.
Sometimes the universe give us a good knocking when we are not paying attention. I have been very busy with many different projects and not really taking care of myself on many levels. This “accident” has forced me to slow down and think about every move I make. Tasks performed with one arm takes much longer than you might think! Thought and presence is required before performing everyday movements we take for granted to avoid painful results. I am so very grateful it was not my right arm as I am right handed, otherwise this moon meditation would not have been completed today.

Capricorn – earth sign, responsible, serious, disciplined, stubborn. Cancer – water sign, nuturing, family, home, sensitive, feelings and emotions.

We are being called to responsibly nuture ourselves, our loved ones, our gifts, our purpose. A reminder to first look after yourself as you are no good to anyone if you are compromised, disconnected, in a state of dis-ease. Let's be responsible for our own beingness... slow down, be present and nuture anything arising that requires our attention.

More quality time with my dog is calling to me, as well as taking the time to get back on track with meditation and physical activity. To be more balanced – mind, body and spirit. Time to get back to painting too!

Stags have been showing up all over for me so I had to include him in my moon meditation today. Stag represents Masculine Energy, Guidance, Gentleness, Healing, Connection to the Earth and the Forest, Alertness, Psychic Power, Independence, Purification, Strength, Nobility.
He stands atop the rolling hill, alert to what is being presented before him, strong, noble and independent. The rolling hills a reminder to roll with the “punches”.. be in the flow of life

The Capricorn ram is present to remind us to be surefooted and stay steadfast in our journey. Most of all let us be kind, tolerant and forgiving of self as well as others with the warm, nurturing energy of the Cancer Sun. Take time for you! I hope you enjoy this moon meditation!

Sending love and blessings to all.
I appreciate your likes, comments and shares on my fanpage Art of Sha. Also a little reminder if you have not liked my fanpage and feel called to do so, please do! I helps me to be more visable to more people.

A little heads up too...Keep an eye out this week for an announcement of my upcoming retreat.

I am available for individual and group creative play, commissions and custom painting parties. Contact me for details.

Special thanks to Amy Bjorndahl for her amazing moon photo.

Belated Solstice Blessings and New Moon Magic!

Greetings on this last day of the new moon window in Cancer. Welcome to all who recently signed up for my moon meditations!

This is a second super new moon in a row, following last month's on May 25th. Two Super Moons back to back point to potential for great change, new beginnings and transformation. The Summer Solstice falling within days of this super moon, joins the solar and lunar energy, intensifying this aspect of change...both are in the sign of Cancer. The new moon sets the tone for the month so let us bring our intentions into what we wish to bring forth for the next cycle.

Cancer is a water sign and all about our personal self, the unconscious and our emotions. The feminine aspect of Cancer – penetrable, open, receptive, caring, nurturing, comforting, loving, security (as in the home), mother, family, intuitiveness, creation.

The ruling planet of Cancer is the moon making this very strong emotional time for many. Reminders or memories of the past may arise that could bring us into deep emotional responses. Be mindful of the essence of love that Cancer carries and give that love to yourself if any challenge arises. There are other aspects at play but I only want to focus on the power of love. Let us be open to the tenderness of our hearts, the caring and nurturing aspects of "the great mother" and be guided by the love that lies within us.

A personal note: I have 4 planets in the sign of Cancer and I am a Cancer Sun Sign so the moon energy strongly influences me. Sometimes I forget how much when in the midst of “feeling”. This super sensitive little crab is so soft on the inside but sometimes when feeling vulnerable the hard shell may certainly show!

Today during this loving Cancer energy and illumination of Summer Solstice, I send love out to all of you. May this month bring you peace, joy and deep nurturing of your true self, highest self, inner self... This window is a such a beautifully supported portal of possibility to follow your loving inner voice with trust and go for the dreams of your heart. Grow your garden of love and shine your light.

Your comments, likes and shares on my fanpage Art Of Sha are encouraged as support of my efforts to shine my own light.

In Joy!

Synchronicity is happening on a grand scale as Nine plays an important role in this Sagittarius Full Moon.

- this exact full moon occurs at 6:09PT on June 9 (06/09) 6

- the Sun is 18 degrees Gemini opposite the Moon 18 degrees Sagittarius (1 + 8 = 9)

- Sagittarius is the 9th sign of the zodiac: a fire sign – positive, forthright, adventurous, spontaneous, spiritual, quester, free thinker

- 9 is the last single digit and the largest single digit number known as the king of numbers. It carries the energy of universal law, unconditional love, service to humanity, faith, spirituality, deep compassion.

- Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and the largest planet in our Solar System, the king of gods. Expansive, higher learning, knowledge, abundance, kindness, generosity,

- Jupiter stations direct on June 9 as well which is the most potent time for a planet's energy & influence on us.

- Sun, Moon is forming a trine with Jupiter which is a harmonious aspect increasing the powers and activity of the 3 planets.

- Sun in Gemini: air sign – versatile, easy going, intellectual, enthusiastic, witty

Even though my moon meditation is coming to you the day after the 9th, the window for the full moon is 3 days so I invite you to work with the power of 9 and the energies occurring at this time. Maybe you noticed there is a lot of 3,6,9 magic happening as well.

The full moon time illuminates the culmination of the past moon cycle. Personally, I have been super busy with some tedious, responsible type tasks that concluded on the 9th that I was grateful to see the end of. I am looking forward to feeling more free to explore. I am feeling lighter and happier. How synchronistic!

My moon meditation centaur points to the full moon encased in a geometric symbol for the number 9. The feathers represent air - space & freedom to fly higher, the time to be closer to what brings me joy. She feels the warmth of Sagittarius fire on her face and drinks it in... the energy to move forward into the space of possibility, higher self, more creativity, transformation and the magic of the unknown and unexpected... in the trust of the universe!

The timing is so supportive to focus on our joy, our bliss, our divine creative self, the truth of who WE/YOU are. Bringing intention and intuition forth with this beautiful energy within the state of wonder creates a space of magic where all is possible.

A link for more info on number 9.
