Day 16 & 17: Journeying into wisdom (#30DaysofHecate)

IMG_9224My rune of the day has been The Moonboat, rune of journeys, for the last two days in a row. I took that as a sign that it is okay to combine days 16 & 17 of 30 Days of Hecate into one post. It didn’t strike me until the middle of the night the clear connection between the Moonboat the “journey into the underworld” photo prompt for yesterday. Today, on the new moon, I drew the Moonboat again. Since the prompt for today is “opening the door to wisdom, ” I decided it was a perfect time to try the new New Moon layout I developed to use with Womanrunes. My own results were no surprise, a deep call for retreat, reflection, solitude, and time.

IMG_9222I feel very “activated” right now, which is unusual for the fall season for me, but underneath the action is a the siren song of solitude, the heart’s call for time to reflect, renew, restore, and recharge. We have been utterly stunned by the volume of orders we’ve experienced in our etsy shop this month. I knew the holiday season would be busy, but I was completely naïve about how busy! Today, we talked a lot about how to re-balance our lives and how to work within this busy-ness in a way that feels sustainable, nourishing, and sensible. We are having a lot of fun, but we’re also getting a little tired and ragged feeling and it is only November 11!

How to do a New Moon layout of your own with Womanrunes or any other cards:

FullSizeRender_1I walk the crescent moon
Plant the seeds and wait to bloom.

I dance the crescent moon
Change is coming, making room.

I sing the crescent moon
Weave intention with her loom.

For this layout, three cards are used:

  1. Planting: What seeds are you planting? What are you incubating or preparing to grow?
  2. Making room: What is changing? How are you making room?
  3. Weaving: What is working through you? What is your intention or focus point?

IMG_9220I did have time to also add a wonderful Moon Wisdom blessing bundle to the etsy shop. I am in love with the resin version of our crescent moon goddess. She is full of energy and power and the wisdom of deep places…
