Method for Lucid Dreams Also Vital for Manifestation

In Tibetan Buddhism, the group of tantric techniques known as milam aim to reveal the illusory nature of waking life by having practitioners perform yoga in their dreams. It’s a ritualised version of one of the most mysterious faculties of the human mind: to know that we’re dreaming even while asleep, a state known as lucid dreaming. Lucidity (awareness […]

Magic Moon Practice: a Force of Influence

There are 2 unique days each month, one during the full moon and one during the new moon, these are called Magic Moon days.

To better understand:

Think of the Earth as a physical, conscious body. It is alive and producing all the things it needs and desires to flourish and continue living.  Everything that grows on this physical conscious body is implemented into seasons so that all things work in unison to produce the best possible outcomes.  Different things ripen at different times and the time comes for other things to pass away and become compose for more things to come; all things working in a superior harmony to compliment the full potential of planet life.

Think of the Moon as an ethereal, subconscious body. It is potent with the knowledge of everything needed and desired by the physical conscious body. From here all things necessary to produce those needs and desires are organized, regulated, and implemented to manifest the best possible outcomes consistent with and conducive to all the planet’s needs and desires.

For example, the conscious earth produces healing herbs because the subconscious moon knows the desire for it to be healthy; and sets the conditions for growth of various herbs that must be implemented for this outcome to be true, then regulates it within the organization of all the other things to be harmoniously and effortlessly manifested in due time.

As Above So Below

With allegoric understanding of the above, you are the Earth and everything in your life represents the conscious; your mind is the Moon and everything controlled by it is the subconscious. With this wisdom, contemplate the benefit of having an opportunity to force new influences on your subconscious when the moon is highly vulnerable.  This unique period of time produces a penetrable energy we can take advantage of ethereally.  The energy is real and the penetration of our thoughts into this energy happens whether we control which thoughts penetrate or not…and often why our lives are not conducive with our desires.  This is the force behind the Law of Attraction—focus on what you want all the time, you are bound to influence the 2 unique periods of penetrable energy that open each cycle (month).

Preparing for the Magic Moon Day.

To prepare for the magic Moon day whether it be the setting or the rising moon, you should empty the body as much as possible by fasting or eating very little 24 hours before the magic day. You should also drink plenty of water the day prior (food clogs our thinking process, water helps our thoughts become more fluid).

You can find the hour of the moon set or moonrise by clicking here:

  • In the menu bar go to: Sun & Moon
  • Click on Moon calculator
  • Put in your location
  • Scroll down the chart to find the day that only has a moon rise or a moon set to see the hour of occurrence.

Moon Set Meditation (the full Moon – decreasing)

This meditation must be started at or any time after the moon set hour of the Magic Moon Day until the moon rise of the next day to complete your meditation.

In a quiet space bring yourself to quiet Mind by focusing on your breath and letting go of all distracting thoughts. Once your mind is quiet begin visualizing the things that you want “out” of your life to be leaving. For example if you are in a bad relationship with someone, picture them leaving or you packing your bags and going out the door; in illness, if it is a tumor, picture it growing smaller and smaller until it disappears. Anything that you want to go away, visualize it leaving you and stay with this visualization until you get an “urge” of satisfaction that it is done. It is suggested that you visualize one thing at a time until you are satisfied with its leaving before you start another one. In this way you can do as many as you like so long as you do not rush through any of them.

Moonrise Meditation (the New Moon – increasing)

This meditation must be started at or any time after the moon rise hour of the Magic Moon Day until the moon set of the next day.

Same as previous, in your quiet place, bring yourself to Quiet Mind. Begin visualizing the things you want coming into your life. For example, if you want more money, you can visualize your bank statement growing with increasing deposit amounts, or you can visualize receiving multiple checks in the mail and opening them to find wonderfully large amounts payable to you. If you want a new car or home, picture yourself driving that car or living in that home you want; i.e. go grocery shopping in your new car, come back and cook up a good meal in the beautiful kitchen or your new home.

The key to Magic visualization is not just seeing yourself doing things as if you are an actor in a play, but fluidly causing the unfolding of these things from your mental point of view; you have to feel the texture of the carpet, bear the weight of the object you hold, form the words you speak, hear the words of others entering your ears, feel the emotion as if it were real, etc.

A Day Without a Moon Set : Magic Moon Days

There is one day a month without a moonrise and one day a month without a moon set.

During the waxing moon there is one day with only a moonrise.  During the waning moon there is one day with only a moon set.

These are the magic moon days. During these times the “expel”(decrease) and “excel” (increase) energies are at their peak. Whatever rituals or meditations practiced during these days are heightened and perpetuated for the complete cycle of the waxing or waning moon; 29.53 days.

New Moon

It is important to understand that when the moon is growing, on the day of a “moonrise only,” set your intention/focus/ritual only on things that you want increased in your reality. For example, if you are mistakenly focusing on what you don’t want, you will generate more of what you don’t want for the next 29 days so be careful! Your focus must be on the things you intend to have. Please note it cannot be on wanting more because you will only find that “want for more” increasing; i.e. if you want more money because you feel you do not have enough, more expenses will arise to increase your want.  But, if you visualize having everything you want, those items will begin to show up.

The opposite is true for the waning moon on the day of the “moon set only.” This is the day to focus on all the things you want out of your life. Your banish rituals and meditations will be enhanced on this day, therefore it is important that you do not focus on those things you want more of.

The moonrise/moon set only days usually occur 4 to 12 days after the new/full moons.

Why this happens (scientifically)

The objects that are important in this analysis are the moon (obviously), the sun, and the earth. When the moon is at the same RA (right ascension) as the sun we have a new moon and from our point of view on earth we don’t see any illuminated part of the moon. RA is the coordinate system in the sky that corresponds to east/west. Declination is the measure of the distance of an object from the equator, so it measures distance north/south.

If the new moon happens to be at the same RA and the same declination as the sun, we have a solar eclipse.

When the moon’s RA is 12 hours different from the sun’s RA, we have a full moon. The earth time from new moon to new moon is 29.53 days (29 days, 12 hours, 43 minutes). This time takes into account the apparent movement of the sun over that time.

These numbers get modified because the moon’s orbit is not circular, it’s elliptical, and keen-eyed observers of the moon will be able to see the difference between the moon at apogee (farthest from earth) and the moon at perigee (closest to earth). This is in part why some solar eclipses are annular and some are total.

We know enough to figure out why there’s no moonrise on one day per lunar cycle and why there’s no moon set on one day per lunar cycle. Because the moon makes one trip around the earth (relative to the sun) in 29.53 days, we can say that the average angular distance traveled per cycle is 360 (re the sun) 29.53 which equals 12.2 degrees. (Strictly speaking there’s another one-degree due to the movement of the earth on its orbit, but we’re close enough.) Since the earth rotates 15 degrees per hour (360/24) we can easily ask how much later, per day, are lunar events (moonrise and moon set). The answer is (12.2/15) * 60 = 48.8 clock minutes. This is certainly in the “ballpark.” Some references say the difference is about 49 minutes per day and others say it’s about 50 minutes per day. To keep it easy, let’s go with a 49 minute per day difference.

If the moon set on any particular day is more than 49 minutes before midnight, the next moon set will occur on the next day. However, if the moon set on our first day of interest is less than 49 minutes before midnight, there will be no moon set on the next day; the next moon set will be just after midnight on the third day.

This is what a professional astronomer would call a back-of-the-envelope calculation. It doesn’t take into account a lot of details that would be important if an exact determination of the timing of this phenomenon is needed. I can think of several considerations that were left out; angle of the moon to the horizon, apogee and perigee of the moon, latitude of the observer, and probably a few other things that don’t occur to me.

How does this fit with real data? To see, I analyzed data from the Naval Observatory moonrise / moon set chart for all of 2012. Based on this calculation I’d expect that the time between successive moon sets is 24 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds. I looked at the data for 2012 for my hometown (Houston, TX) and found that the average time between moon sets for over 300 moon sets was 24 hours + 50.4 minutes. I’m in the right ballpark. The actual difference in moon set time on any given day can vary quite a bit. At my location the minimum difference in 2012 is 35 minutes and the maximum is 68 minutes.

If you look at a moonrise / moon set calendar you’ll see that the day with no moon set is near the first quarter and the day of no moonrise is near the last quarter. If you think about the geometry of this, it makes sense.

To see when you’ll have a day without a moon set or a moonrise get a moonrise chart here:

Enter the year, specify that the Type of Table; is moonrise/moonset, enter your location, and click [compute table] and you’ll get a table of all moonrise and moon set events for your location. For locations outside the US, you can enter the latitude and longitude of the location. Note that the table does not take into account daylight saving time. So, if you observe daylight saving time, or the equivalent, be sure to compensate for that.

Intensified New Moon energy!

“When the two become one and say, ‘Mountain Move;’ the mountain will move!”

Diary of A Sufi Woman:

sun - moon rise

Tomorrow morning the new moon rises with the sun to intensify the powers of the universe with masculine and feminine forces rising together; together the forces of Dark and Light will rein for twelve hours. — ”When the two become one…”

Check your location for the exact rise and set times. 


In my location:

The sun rises tomorrow at 6:25 am and sets at 7:49 pm

The moon rises at 6:24 am and sets at 7: 54 pm


If you are a practitioner who works with the energy alignments of the universe this is the time to bring forth and send out.  This is a time when the rulers of the hours are at work even if you do not call them to aid by name.  But for the layman; the average woman all you need is to insert your intention at the rising hour, hold onto it…

The Blood Moon Phenomenon


Lunar Tetrad

The totality – total phase – of the April 4, 2015 lunar eclipse lasted less than five minutes (4:44), making it the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. It’s perfect for short attention spans! The whole eclipse including penumbral and partial phases lasted several hours. The total lunar eclipse was visible from western North America, eastern Asia, the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. At North American time zones, the greatest eclipse happened before sunrise on April 4 – the morning of April 4, not the evening. From the world’s Eastern Hemisphere – eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia.

Total lunar eclipses are rare – only about one in three lunar eclipses are total. About four to five total eclipses can be seen at any place on Earth in a decade.

Lunar eclipses usually do not occur in any specific order. However, every once in a while, four total lunar eclipses happen in a row. This is called a lunar tetrad. The total lunar eclipses happen 6 months apart. There are at least six full Moons between two total lunar eclipses in a tetrad.

2014-2015 Lunar Tetrad

The first total eclipse in this lunar tetrad was on April 15, 2014. The second was October 8, 2014. The next two will be on:

All four total lunar eclipses will be visible from most of the United States.

According to NASA, the current century – 2001 to 2100 – will have eight tetrads. The first tetrad of the 21st century took place in 2003, and the second will happen in 2014-2015. The first eclipses in each of these tetrads will occur between March and May.

Another End-of-the-world Prophecy?

Some people believe that the tetrad has special significance because the eclipses coincide with important Jewish festivals. The two April lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015 occur at the same time as Passover, while the October and September eclipses occur during the Feast of Tabernacle. This, they suggest, is connected to a biblical prophecy of the end of times.

The fact is, eight of the tetrads since the first century have coincided with Jewish holidays without the world going under, so there is no reason to believe that the 2014-2015 tetrad will end the world this time either.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”
The Blood Moon phenomenon has attracted much attention of late thanks to the efforts and solar discoveries by Root Source’s Bob O’Dell and Gidon Ariel.  Not everyone is in agreement as to what the Blood Moons signify. According to O’Dell, “All the prior blood moon tetrads point to a pattern of blessing on the Jewish people. They are good news for the Jews. They are a great indicator of God’s love and commitment to the Jewish people to preserve them, and a warning to those who stand in opposition to Israel.”

Full Moon Rising

A time to release old ideas and outdated things…

Diary of A Sufi Woman:

As this Full Moon releases all that it is has gathered;

May this World find Peace,

And may every Heart experience Joy!

When Mercury is Retrograde …

… other planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion.

2015 Retrograde Dates In 2015, Mercury will be retrograde during:

  • January 21 – February 11
  • May 19 – June 11
  • September 17 – October 9


This Mercury retrograde will give us many signs and signals for what will dominate Mercury-ruled areas from mid-February through mid-May 2015. This retrograde is a time to review past goals and ambitions, and take a new look at how things were unrealistic given the larger group or social environment. Here we take a new look at what’s behind us before moving forward anew at the end of the RX period in mid-February. We can get all kinds of new insights into future potentials, while seeing things in the recent past differently.

The Inferior Conjunction happens January 30 at 11 Aquarius. That indicates the coming “fusion of life and mind” will help us to a new look, new interpretation, or new understanding of the issues associated with the middle decan of Aquarius, as well as what Jupiter taught us in February 2009, when it occupied that exact degree.

So welcome many things being reviewed or coming back up to surface these next three weeks thanks to the retrograde quality of the time. Some will review past efforts to see what still needs to be integrated into the life, and/or there could be returns, rehearsals, or echoes of the past and its hopes, dreams, assumptions, and ambitions.   Read this full Article, wonderfully written by Robert Wilkinson on “The Guide of Souls in January 2015.”  This will be another important retrograde, where the past will be reviewed to see what we can and cannot bring with us into the future in mid-February. It will help us rehearse or do the research we need to get ready to spring forward in early March, clear about what we know, what we need to know, and what must happen if we are to move forward in our lives.

Another Important Perspective

Welcome Mercury Retrograde! 

Hopefully by now we have all learned not to fear it, for it is simply a part of the natural cosmic cycles and can bring with it many valuable gifts!

After a strong beginning to 2015 which has moved us into setting plans in forward motion, we have an opportunity to slow down a bit and now go over the plans we have set.

This is a great time for going over the details, researching, reflecting, cleansing, clearing, and delving deeper into the various aspects and dynamics at hand.
