Crow (March) MoonBox Ritual and Meditation


CROW FULL MOON

March 11, 2017

Planet: Mercury // Sign: Virgo // Element: Earth

Happy Crow Full Moon in the sign of Virgo, MoonBox Community! This is the last Full Moon of the Winter Season and the first glimpse of the onset of Spring...

The season of Spring signifies the rebirth of our gracious Planet. Young flowers find buds, trees see new growth, and sweet sap begins to drizzle down from their branches. Every year, like a reliable clock, this season comes around to remind us of the the ever present sweetness & innocence of new life.

Crows gather in community to welcome the defrosting of the Earth as it warms and sprouts. Birds of all kinds begin singing harmonious songs and the Crow call rings through the air, ushering in the end of Winter. The Robins return to their nests and the daring, territorial Crows lay claim over the soft, newly warm soil, heeding the return of the Earthworms. This echoing sound is often associated with infinite transformation.

Crows symbolize the magic and mysticism that takes place throughout all living things as the circle of life begins again.

The warmer days thaw the crisp layers of frozen moisture from the cool nights, hydrating the soil, plants, and trees.

With the Full Crow Moon lighting up the sky just before the Spring Equinox, the cosmos is asking us to reflect upon any seeds you wish to plant and nurture. Seek clarity through introspection and ease through letting go of that which no longer serves your optimal growth.

Look back on the Winter season lovingly, applying the fuel from any hibernation that may have taken place.

And if it hasn't yet, carve out some time between the Full Moon and the Spring Equinox to rest, reconnect, and recharge your vision for the onset of Spring. Focus on the tools you already have and how you can be your own catalyst for evolution from within. Emphasize gratitude, so resist any urge to seek outside of yourself by ruminating on the past or getting distracted by the future.

Always remember the abundance that is naturally available within you in the present moment.

As a child of Planet Gaia, you are tightly bound to the cycle of life, & this is your time to grow!

'Surrender Into Your Rebirth'

a Full Moon Ritual

The Crow Full Moon in Virgo is pouring through our energetic fields asking us to slow down and notice the magic in the process. Fall in love with every step of the way and let go of the destination.

Surrender into grounded direction tethered to the present moment.

Let go of any rumination of the past or fears attached to the future and embrace the truth that exists in the here and now. Feel the support of the Earth beneath you, charged by the planet Mercury, which rules our relationship to resources. Accept that you already have all the tools you need within yourself to uncover a meaningful purpose during this cosmically cleansing Full Moon.

Although, the spiritual goodies we've provided you with will definitely help set this intention into motion, remind yourself that all you NEED is your open heart!

To set you up for this guided grounded Meditation & Ritual, we have provided you with two items:

- Lotus Wei 'Infinite Love' Flower Essence Spray - The Ritual Store 'Love Smudge'

Begin by brewing a cup of Crow Moon Tea - and set up a sacred space in your home to explore the rest of your MoonBox. Burn your Love Smudge Sage bundle to energetically cleanse any cobwebs off of the heart. Spray 'Infinite Love' into the newly cleansed air and let that element travel through the cosmos like a blessing for every heart in the world! Air is the element of the Heart Chakra and with this ritual, we are blessing all heartspaces everywhere to be reborn and open up!

Let Love Live through the effortless energetic traverse of the Air!

Imagine all blockages dissolving into the ether, asking yourself to let go of any internal burdens. Surrender any weighing feelings and let them fully disappear, freeing yourself with the reminder that you need not carry any weight that does not serve your highest purpose and ultimately the greater good.

The astrological sign of Virgo beckons a meticulous and detailed approach to all things, which can easily get caught up in examining the past or obsessing over the future. Curb this tendency by meticulously planting yourself in this perfection of the present moment. There is nothing to change or fix, there is only the beauty of the process, embrace it and enjoy it for the magic that it is! You need not have everything pristine and perfect in order to enjoy is essence. Resist any urge to obsess over that which you cannot change and accept the gifts of this very moment in time.

As you are individually ready, settle into the grounded embrace of the Crow Moon and begin your guided meditation of rebirth, recorded by our co-founder, Paula Pavlova.

We wish you an easeful journey through the tides of surrender! May you all fully ride the wave into a place of clarity.

Tend to your roots, water the seed of your intention, & breathe into the perfection that is the messy process of Life.

We promise, you will love every moment of what you reveal to yourself, about yourself - for if you take the time to notice you will see, you are nothing short of PURE MAGIC!

Spread the Luna Love!
