Shake and Bakes are my quarterly check-ins (CHICKENS!). They used to be weekly – but this year they are happening in line with the moon. I use these posts to … shake out the happenings of my work and my life in general in an attempt to Shake off the bad and Bake in the good. It’s about … gratitude, paying attention and now..living by the moon.
~~o~~ New PIKE Moon ~~o~~
This moon is known as Ice Moon (Celtic), Storm Moon (Medieval England/Wiccan), Snow Moon (Algonquin), Trapper’s moon (Colonial America), Bony Moon(Cherokee), and Little Famine Moon (Choctaw).
I saw a few possibilities for my personal naming of the coming moon. It feels like… a watery moon. There’s my newest JOY – the ice fishing I plan to do with Diana (Goddess of the fisHUNT). There’s the fact that The Raggedy Man will be sailing away from me for a few weeks – off on an adventure on the high seas. And then there’s the DEEP SEA work on the novel. Exploring the depths and chipping away… working my way back down to the true core of the story.
So… I’m gonna go with… Pike Moon for this moonth.
Let the wiley Nothern PIKE guide me through the murky waters ahead. Let me ride the currents of my life and slip deep into the Creative Realm.
Intentions for the New Moon
Shaking off The Hard
Hmm…. drawing a blank on what what hard this last bit… I think just… WORK stuff…
Baking in The GOOD
And, with that… we move on into this fresh new Moonth.
Energy is awakening… we are moving toward Imbolc (February 2), a time of healing and inspiration and Brighid’s sacred fire.
Find a cozy nook and dream a little.
What would you like to bring in to your life?
I’ll be doing my simple Imbolc ritual again this year. Feel free to join me.
Thanks for popping by.
Go easy ~p
