Gear up for the full moon

No matter where you are in the world or what month we are in, the full moon is a great opportunity for a fresh start.

The full moon of June is known as the Strawberry Moon because of the pink hue the moon takes on to illuminate the summer sky. The Strawberry Moon also signifies the beginning of strawberry picking season for the North American east coast. While you are taking the time to admire the moon in all of its beauty make sure to reflect, recharge and prepare for new beginnings.

“Under the full moon she had never felt crazy. She had only ever felt connected.”

Check out some of my full moon favs:

Moonlight Tea

This tea is the perfect match for tonights vibes. This caffeine free blend will be the perfect drink to cozy up with under the moon with your journal. The basil, lavender, and peppermint blend together so perfectly- it’s like a culinary experience in your mouth. Don’t let the basil freak you out, it actually provides the perfect balance to the coolness of the mint and floral of the lavender. I started my day with this tea and will most definitely be ending my day with it as well.

The Moon Made Me Do It Tee

With the full moon quite literally changing the tides in our lives, it can be easy to lose sight of our intentions and ability to keep our communication in check. Let’s be honest, this t-shirt says it best, “The Moon Made Me Do It.”

Rose Quartz Stone

The Strawberry Moon can sometimes be referred to as the Rose Moon, which is why this would be the perfect time to set loving intentions for yourself. Rose quartz is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.

Black Tourmaline Hidden Crystal Soy Candle 

The black tourmaline stone in this candle will help provide a connection between Earth and the human spirit, which is ideal when it comes to self-reflection during the full moon. Light this candle under the clear light of the moon tonight and take in its supportive energy that will help to align your energy and spread healing life.

 

May you find clarity and embrace all the positive things the universe has to offer. Happy summer!

Cancer

“The Natural Nurturer”

June 21 – July 22
Symbol- Crab
Element- Water
Ruling Planet- Moon: celestial body of moods and emotions

As the caretaker of the zodiac, the Cancer is known for establishing a close family bond. Although it may be hard to get passed the strong exterior of the Cancer, they are tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal and sympathetic once you do. They are well-known for following their heart and being driven by emotion, which makes them both persuasive and emotional as well. At times they can be moody, pessimistic and manipulative, a true demonstration of the weak side of the Cancer. The Cancer is most content when surrounded by loving friends and family.

Crab

The Cancer horoscope symbol is the crab and its claws. The glyph is meant to represent the nurturing, feminine qualities of this zodiac sign.

Water Element

The element of Water is associated with the signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Water signs are very emotional and sensitive beings. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because this allows them to be very conscious of others emotions and demonstrate great compassion. While they can be calm like the sea, they also run deep like a river.

Moon

The moon is in its rulership in the sign of Cancer, so this is where it can best express itself. Those born under this sign love being at home and prefer a feeling of security and consistency. With the moon as their ruling planet, the Cancer is patient, sensitive, romantic, sociable and maternal.

Cardinal Sign

Cancer is a cardinal sign as it marks the beginning of a new season, more specifically the beginning of summer. Other cardinal signs include Libra, Capricorn and Aries. These signs are constantly coming up with new ideas and have a natural knack for leadership. For that reason, they would much rather radiate originality and be first rather than be seen as a follower. You can always count on a cardinal sign to stay up to date on the latest trends and get the party started.

The Importance of Loving Yourself

Over the past 7 years I’ve learned so much about myself, one of the most important things I’ve learned is how important it is to love myself.

You are the only thing that is always certain, that is always there, that is always consistent in your life.

We can’t predict what will happen in the future, in a week, in a day or even in the next second, but one thing for certain is we will always be ourselves.

By the time you are done reading this, so many other factors in the world will be changing around you, and you will still be you.

So what’s the point? YOU will always have YOU!

Think about how much more enjoyable your life would be if you just loved yourself. Sounds easy? Well, it’s not. I came up with a few simple rituals that will set you in the right direction every single day. Every day is a new opportunity to wake up feeling blessed, loved and rejuvenated.

 

Ritual 1: The “Thank You” Stone

Amethyst Crystal Cluster

Get yourself a crystal, geode, rock, stone, pebble or one of Little Blueberryy’s special crystals and make this your “Thank You” Stone. What’s a “thank you” stone? It’s a stone that you hold in your hands every night before going to bed. While your holding the stone say out loud what you are most thankful for from that day. It could be anything! While your mind is racing trying to come up with the BEST part of your day, you’re actually filling your head with all kinds of positive take away’s from the day.

“The best part of my day was… seeing my dog, getting a good grade on a test, going to lunch with my friend, going to yoga class…”

And now before you close your eyes and go to sleep you are flooded with positive thoughts and positive vibes only. Sweet dreams.

 

Ritual 2: The Sexy, Silk Goddess Ritual

My intern Sho brought this uplifting ritual to my attention. At Little Blueberryy’s Galentines Day photo-shoot I had thrown all my expensive, sexy little lingerie, overly revealing body suites, silk robes and fancy kimonos out on my bed and said

“well here’s all my beautiful things that I’ll never wear”

Ladies, lets be serious we have all been in this predicament!

So Sho mentioned that I should wear them around my apartment for myself. Not for anyone else. Who is stopping us from feeling sexy in our own skin? That’s right…nobody! So love yourself ritual number 2 is wear your lace bra and silk robe around your house for nobody, but yourself. Love yourself and the skin you’re in.

 

Ritual 3: Light The Night Ritual 

You can combine this ritual with ritual number 2 because personally I think its very suiting. Light the night is simple! Just find a nice quiet space, your sacred space. This can be in your bedroom, on your back porch, in your living room, studio, wherever, and light some candles. When you light the candle think about a positive intention or mantra such as “I am at peace”, “ Whatever is meant to be will find a way”, “everything is temporary”, “I vow to love myself”.

If you’d like to use a little magic for this ritual you can burn a special colored candle. 

Or check out our crystal candle collection! All of our candles come with intentions that are sure to uplift your mood and put you in a zen state of mind.

 

Ritual 4: Wake up, Bless up Ritual

Every morning when you first open your eyes, you should think about how blessed you are to even be waking up in a bed or on a couch or with a blanket or sheet or what have you.

If you have a nightstand keep a notebook in your nightstand or nearby your bed so when you wake up in the morning you can write down….

5 things you love about yourself and

5 things you are truly grateful for

 

Some mornings it might not be easy to think of even one thing you love about yourself, trust me I get that feeling, but think outside the box. They don’t all need to be physical qualities.

This practice will become a ritual after doing it every morning and you might even start to do this in your head mentally every morning.

 

Ritual 5: The Hottest One Yet

 This is one of my favorite pretty little secrets. In the morning before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner or before going to bed (at least once a day) boil yourself a big ol’ cup of hot water and squeeze some fresh lemon in it.

While you’re boiling your water be mindful of the time you are spending to provide yourself with one of the most important things in life, self-care.

Bless your hot water concoction with loving thoughts. Send healing vibes into your water and drink it slowly, taking in all the good vibes.

This ritual isn’t just about being mindful; it actually has many health benefits. By drinking hot water before eating you are less likely to overeat, so you can forget those drowsy overstuffed feelings! It gives you a little energy and immune system boost, helps with digestion and weight loss and freshens your breath!

Now if that doesn’t make you feel good about yourself I don’t know what else to tell ya!

I know all these rituals might not seem possible and you don’t have to do them all every single day, but try to get yourself in the habit of doing them. These rituals are sure to help you love yourself and express gratitude a little more and more everyday.

When we love ourselves anything is possible. We are capable of loving so many things; keep a little bit of that love inside and share some of that love with yourself.

Love who you are

Don’t change for anybody

Embrace yourself

In order to truly love, we must love ourselves first

You will always be there

Capricorn

December 22- January 19

Symbol- Mountain Goat or Sea Goat

Element- Earth

Ruling Planet- Saturn- planet of discipline and maturity

“The Master Planner”

 

Capricorn’s energy is important since all planets transit through this zodiac sign all year long, meaning we all will feel their energy. They are known for having the energy to stay focused and being determined as well as find the simplest route to getting something done and sticking with that plan. Capricorns are loyal, family minded, devoted and honest. At times they can be overly dutiful, aiding in part of the weak side of a Capricorn. Some Capricorn’s may be too harsh and calculating resulting in being a bit of a burden to take on.

 

Goat

The symbol can either be seen as a Mountain Goat or a Sea Goat. The Mountain Goat represents how driven and persistent a Capricorn may be. The Sea Goat however is supposed an image that inflicts fear, symbolizing the defense mechanism of a Capricorn. Capricorn’s will find the need to transform into something scary that will drive away what scares them, which can make things worse sometimes.

Earth Element

There are three Earth elements; Taurus, Virgo and lastly Capricorn. Since it is the final Earth sign, it combines the solid foundation of a Taurus and Virgo’s skillful planning. With these two characteristics combined, we all will feel the Capricorn’s motivating energy to take on our biggest goals and want to create structure.

Saturn

Saturn is known as the “Father Time” planet, which is what play’s into why Capricorn’s want respect for their paternalistic qualities. Saturn is also a planet of repression. Therefore, Capricorn’s urges may come out in shocking ways, so while being solid and stoic, underneath they may have some “out there” secrets.

Cardinal Sign

Capricorn is the last Cardinal sign, a sign that starts of the change of the seasons, Capricorn being winter. Cardinal signs are the leaders of “idea” people; they want to be originals and trendsetters.

This means you can also give a gift to other animals in need as well as your own! It is always nice to give to others at the same time, even little furry animals, because animals bring us so much joy!

Floral Dresses

Honestly, who said you can’t still wear floral in the winter?  They are both bohemian inspired and 70’s vintage inspired! The Unforgettable Vintage Floral Dress is our favorite pick, just in time to give as a gift to wear for the New Year! The lace front and small cut out on the chest make it fun and flirty without getting cold! The darker beige gives us the reminder that spring is not quite yet here, but with the floral pattern intertwined saying, it isn’t far off! Floral pattern is great all year, in my opinion, as a way to keep the nature and beauty of flowers alive and our spirits up!
