August ~ Full Moon Energy

The Full Moon for August ~ What energies are going to come into play for each of us? Summer is winding down, the seasons will be in transition soon, and this is the key. A lot of emphasis has always been put on “Spring House Cleaning”, but cleansing your home (both in the physical mundane aspect and as in clearing energy) is just as important this time of year. We’re going to be spending the coming winter months ensconced inside this space. We’ll feel so much better if our house is clean and tidy, both aesthetically and spiritually.

Barley Moon
Herbs: rosemary, jasmine, lilac, violet, calamus
Stones: bronzite, peridot, green sapphire
Scents: frankincense, heliotrope
Colors: yellow, gold, green
Trees: hazel, alder, cedar
Deities: Ganesha, Hathor, Hecate, Nemesis
Astrological Signs: Leo, Virgo
Elements: Earth/Air

Crafting Your Magic:
The Barley Moon is the time to reap the harvest of magic cast at the beginning of the summer season. It’s a time for the powerful assertive energy of Leo to give way to the calmer vibrations of Virgo. Do magic at this time to cleanse before the winter, cleansing not only your personal space, but intangible aspects as well. Clear out unwanted rubbish, whether it be inertia, conflict, indecisiveness, or some other personal weakness. As the summer winds down and wildlife begins to prepare itself for the dark months to come, this is where the heart of your magic lay as well.

  1. Thank You Amythyst for this very important reminder. I certainly have much to be rid of and actually felt the pull to start cleansing a month ago, and yet I haven’t done so. So much negativity surrounding and within this house. I have so much banishing to do here. I also would like to thank you for the special you gave on your new book, The Spiritual Feminist for the Kindle , a steal of a deal for the e-book @ .99 cents. I purchased it that day. I also have the paperback edition which I pre ordered. Goddess knows I haven’t had time to do much reading but I’m excited to have both versions.
