Plant Magic for Shadow Work

This month’s Full Blue Moon / Super moon is a total lunar eclipse. As the moon is shadowed, we can use this time for self-reflection to explore our own shadows —our darker and unconscious aspects.

I love honoring the powerful energy of the full moon each month. This July, we are blessed with two full moons! The next one is coming up on July 31st.

Full Moon Ceremony - Building Bliss

The August full moon rises on the 20th. The Power Path shares: "There is a lot of energy that can be harnessed for your intentions and projects.
