MAY new moon : queer ancestors, flower magic, bees, + chickens


It's a gorgeously bright and sparkling day and all the bees are talking about it. The new moon brought rain - both outside and in. The spring is such a good time to cry, to drink more water, and to get rained on to wash away the winter stuckness and what wants to grow.

Some exciting things are growing here!
 A flower essence workshop in July in which we'll play in the garden and make essences, Queer Ancestral healing with myself and Atava Garcia Sweicicki from Oakland in August, and beginning in the fall, I'll be offering a 6 month intuitive arts immersion, dates tbd. Details below.

With all these weird and wild astrological rides and what felt like an intense transition from a deep, arctic winter to this fancy gift of spring, I've been collecting magics of time and space and flowers and stones in bowls and brewing up a new elixir for transition magic. Between the Worlds is still in the pot, but should be ready for imbibing in late summer and is good support for big change & transitions, saturn returns, and gender magic.
 
and finally, there are some new additions to the family this spring:
 I'm in love. 

Wishing you all a beautiful late spring and sending quenching rains and golden sunshine to your new moon seeds.
with lots of love from the Witch Barn,
Dori
