Join us virtually during the lodge with this funeral for your ego!
Burn, drown, or bury the paper!
Burn, drown, or bury the paper!
While the Moon is in Libra, starting this week brings in a strong attraction for partnerships. Business, marriage, and friendships are formed easily coming from the Libras search for harmony and balance. Also being in the 4th house of childhood, this house holds the memories aka the emotional storage unit you operate from subconsciously.
Venus rules Libra bringing in a desire to make things beautiful. Now is the time for artistic work to combine Venus’s beauty and the intellectual ease of the Air. I Balance: this affirmation during this time will be a great tool to use as situations and desire to care for the needs and wellness of others are addressed.
Scorpio puts Venus in an emotional state during this time and we may feel our relationships are consuming us. Feeling deeply is the theme of this planetary engagement. The yearn for more than the Tinder swipe is prominent as we move into the soul contact aspect of living. Longings for the unforgettable, extreme, and almost taboo contact bring about a passionate, sensual, and intense energy. The want to be consumed by this energy is the vortex of awareness is a driving force in our human body. Having blind faith in relationships may be hard but feelings of vulnerability with this Scorpio energy. Focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want!
This Venus trine naturally brings about a romantic but playful time, helping balance out the deep Scorpio energies. Be prepared for growth in personal and social relationships. Many are in a position to offer opportunities to others, usually with regards to work and career. Socrates and Keanu Reeves were born under a Venus Trine Jupiter, so tap into the cosmic energy withheld in all.
Moments of wandering thoughts can bring concentration troubles at one point. Communications can be very vague as tendencies to not be tied down any one stance rise up. This is due partly to Neptune’s ability to see many views and perspectives. Creative aspirations are more inclined to succeed during this time rather than detail oriented work, so take a break and tap into source. The feeling of running with intuition is strong but be well aware of a tendency to give up on projects or plans before they even get off the ground.
Romantic nature is enhanced through the influence of Venus in the trine aspect to Neptune. With feelings of love enabling you to open your heart and truly feel compassion and kindness. A natural and dreamy-ness about relationships regarding strong emotional ties. Allow love to flow during this time!
Pluto and Mars rule Scorpio which brings up very strong desires and strong passions. Sometimes this brings up feelings of aggressiveness and the tendency to be very critical. Don’t be surprised if your boss is extra moody! Everyone is on the edge when it comes to personal insults and offenses when the Moon flows into this sign. Scorpio is suspicious and almost secretive in nature. Key words: Forgive and Forget. !It is a great time to merge with someone on a deep emotional level. The Kundalini energy is stored in the generative system which is where Scorpio has rule in the body. Now would be a great time to start a daily practice!
Mars is represented by our primal soul energy. This encompasses our sexual desires, aggression, and survival. It’s now or never to stand your ground in a non domineering way. Avoid being ruthless with ill intention. Stay clear of engaging in the role of the victim as dominant power plays are full effect. Your vibrating higher already and do not need old coded patterns of manipulation to get your heart’s desires.

I know that inside each of us is the power and ability to help alleviate the weight we carry.
I have been there, in the darkest times of my own shadow, barely able to recognize myself, letting people who truly loved me slip through the cracks. I also knew my light could help me. I could feel it still there before I decided to choose to live in lower energy frequencies. I remember the exact moment that I was full of source energy and that same energy which created every single conscious and unconscious element around me, was available to me. I stepped back into the light. I am not going to tell you it was hard because it wasn’t.
I used to live in a house that was literally something out of a book, but for real, you can buy the book here and the passive solar house he speaks of, is the one he built in the high hills of the Cohutta Wilderness. This place was my home for a short time and has been a major impact on how I have continued to live here in Colorado. Sit back and grab some tea because I used to live in a fairy tale.
This was my view each morning when I woke up for about 16 months. There is so much I could say about this house and how it changed me but honestly, I feel like I really came into myself. So let’s start off with the magic beginnings of how this little slice of off grid heaven came into my path.

At least 158 Million people worldwide use Cannabis for medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. This number increases daily as more people understand the power of this plant, and women in Colorado are coming together to prove they also can benefit from the community it brings.
Entrepreneur and hierophant that Cannabis can help woman dissolve “the competition complex,” Maggie Murphy of Colorado, also known as The Stoned Housewife, is blazing this path with The Green Lodge Goddess Gathering.
Once each month, with dates currently scheduled through June 2017 at the Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, healers from all over the world are invited to enrich the lives of the women at the Green Lodge Goddess Gatherings. The theme, though always centered around indigenous Earth Medicine, changes each month, so ladies are encouraged to attend as many as possible to build upon previous teachings. While the theme may change, Maggie insists that one thing is for certain,
“Participants can expect that Loren, the house Kundalini instructor, will push them and enhance their moon flow by giving them specific sound currents and mantras to open up the neural pathways and promote healing.”
Regular attendee, Danielle Webster shared her thoughts about the most recent gathering,
“I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment.”

More women are using cannabis to enhance their beauty routine with night creams and bath bombs loaded with THC or CBD. Since you can’t legally toke up in a spa yet, I wanted to do a little in home experiment combining cannabis and crystals to make my own Stoned Spa experience.
Not many people dispute the medicinal properties of cannabis, but Crystal Healing still has some convincing to do on a national level. Crystals have a high rate of vibration so they are utilized widely in modern technology. There are liquid crystal diodes in calculators and the very phone you may be reading this on. They also are used in credit cards, fiber-optic phone lines, and laser technology. Crystals literally power our lives. If we could see the energy fields that make up each and everything, including us, we would all be carrying around crystals to protect and amplify our energy fields. Crystals have their own energy fields and the Crystal Kingdom began on earth before the plant kingdom, so they have a deeper healing property than we have yet to fully discover. Plus who doesn’t love feeling a little witchy?
Using cannabis topicals on your skin can deliver many anti aging benefits by combating wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Cannabinoids, like CBD, are also known to have amazing anti inflammatory properties. Now you can bring your own spa into your bathroom by making a simple trip to the dispensary and your local metaphysical store. To get the full spa experience you will of course need candles and some crystals. To take it to the next level, I like to use a Malachite Bath Soak which charges the water with the healing properties of the crystals. Malachite is an extremely powerful metaphysical stone and is used for deep energy clearing. So if you have had, “one of those days” you are going to make this your new night-time ritual.
Mix the face mask ingredients into small bowl and stir until desired consistency is reached. Paint onto face avoiding eyes and hairline, letting mask dry while in the bath. Starting the bath water, add in the Malachite and Hash Bath satchel while the water is still running. While waiting for the bath to fill gently take the body brush and start gently dry brushing your skin.
Dry Brushing helps shed dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, leaving your skin more radiant as soon as you start brushing.
The Malachite will turn the water a mermaid green color. Step in and slowly start to dunk the bath bomb. I usually let it sit in my hand and float it around creating a circle. Then sit back and relax!
For an added healing element you can use a variety of mantras to dissolve blocks and let go of any unwanted tension. Being in a malachite bath is a PERFECT time to meditate and light up your joint! By now you are prob in a very relaxed state. If you are like me and enjoy mid afternoon baths, I would grab a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid strain like Strawberry Cough, Durban Poison, Ghost Train Haze or Lambs Bread. Otherwise those night baths are a perfect pairing with an indica strain like Grand Daddy Purple, Violator Kush, G-13 or Bubba Kush. Once you are done with your smoke, gently lower your head into the bath soaking your hair and rubbing the charcoal and cannabis mask off. Keep a warm wash cloth next to you and gently wipe away any remaining pieces of the mask.
To complete your experience, pamper your body with almond oil or a CBD topical salve to give your skin that last little bit of glow. Store your extra mask, if any, in your fridge and use within 3 days.
