The word "flora" translates to "flowers," and is also the name of the Roman Goddess of flowers, spring, and fertility.
Her first temple was built on the advice of the Sibylline Oracle, with the intent to protect nearby crops from famine and disease. During this time of quarantine, it's safe to say that we've all been thinking about protection from disease, making it the perfect time to invite Flora to help protect your space, your body, and your loved ones. Try this simple meditation or ritual below using our Palo Santo Flora Bundles to center your thoughts and help radiate your inner positivity.
Ritual Tip: The best time for this is during the new or waxing moon.
✨ Gather fresh flowers from your yard or nearby and place in your home, or in your hair, as an offering for Flora.
✨ Light Palo Santo to cleanse your space and release negativity and fear.
✨ Place the dried flowers and Selenite from the Palo Santo Flora Bundle next to the main door of your home or room as an offering to Flora.
✨ While cleansing your space, open the door and invite Flora to come into your home.
✨ Be sure to keep fresh flowers in your house in exchange for the protection Goddess Flora provides.

We have collectively entered the energy of 2023, a “7” year in numerology… Sevens are spiritual numbers that offer opportunity to reflect, engage philosophy and spiritual inquiry for personal growth, thoughtful analyzation in all matters, and psychological integration and wholeness. Along with this theme of reflection is that we start the year in a handful of retrograde planetary energy. Mercury (communication, thinking, writing) is in retrograde until the 18th, Mars (action, desire, passion, motivation) until the 12th, and Uranus (technology, major shifts, disruptions, sacred challenges, transformation) until the 22nd...

Happy December, JSS fam! We have entered the final month of the year, eclipse season has ended, and we are soaring in the free and adventurous energy of Sagittarius throughout most of this month... The full moon on the 7th falls in Gemini and will be conjunct Mars… I always like to focus on gratitude and forgiveness for the final full moons of the year (hello, alliteration!). Forgiveness unburdens us and promotes healing through release, and gratitude expands abundance. This lunation highlights curiosity around who or what we can release to free up mental real estate those outgrown energies were occupying. The Mars conjunction coupled with those intentions and actions can assist us in calling back our power and stepping into confident and passionate warrior mode after unburdening ourselves to prep for the coming year.
