Sound Magic: Sound Bath for the Full Moon in Capricorn July 16th, 2019 

Suggested Tools

  • Crystal: Garnet, particularly Grossular Garnet if you have it
  • Herbs or Essential Oil: Lemongrass
  • Incense: Frankincense and Styrax, particularly Royal Hojari Frankincense

Welcome to our first sound bath meditation! A sound bath, as the name implies, washes the participant in a sea of tones and harmonics used to enhance relaxation and release stress, thus welcoming the benefits that come with reducing these mental barriers. Research has shown that sound waves can decrease anxiety, improve sleep, elevate the mood, and lower blood pressure for the physical body.

You will want to start by preparing a space most comfortable to you by lighting your incense. If you have chosen to use herbs this is a great time to ignite some of them using a cauldron, dish, or charcoal incense burner. If you have chosen essential oils, dab some on your wrists and neck, but be sure they are safe to put directly onto the skin. You can choose to hold the crystal in your hands, place it upon your body, or have it in the space with you. Anything that you feel most comfortable doing is the goal. 

Once your space is readied, sit or lay down and begin the sound bath. In this process you want to try to empty out the mind and allow yourself to be enveloped by the tones and transported outward from your day-to-day mindset. Sometimes it is best to visualize color fields or shapes you associate with these tones to better stamp out mental chatter and to deepen your moment in meditation. Another common technique is to practice breathing techniques, such as inhaling while envisioning violet or white light radiating from the top of your head throughout your body, and exhaling while envisioning your stress and worries dissipating.

Engaging the Elements: WATER

We live on the Blue Planet, Earth. Over 70% of it is covered by water and more than 80% of that water remains a mystery with unmapped, uncharted, unseen depths right here on Earth. Most of that water is found in our oceans, which produce more than 70% of the oxygen we breathe, regulate the Earth’s climate, and contain far more life than is found on land... Now let’s think about our bodies for a moment, considering each as a “body of water”. Up to 60% of our bodies are made of water which is required for nearly...

The major highlights of this month include: Mars at the helm in the early days of July bringing both confidence and fiery combustion energy to the Saturn/Uranus relationship; we are officially out of eclipse season, but still picking up speed, so some push/pull energy; a cozy and harmonizing New Moon in Cancer to cool the heat; 4 Rx planets til October or later, so lots of inner focus/work; an electrifying and transformative tough-love Full Moon in Aquarius; and Mercury movements end of month that aid in deep psychological awareness, thus availability for processing and healing...
