The Lunar Queen: “She of the Celestial Crescent”
“There is a deep feminine wisdom that recognizes the importance of rest and replenishment as essential balancing to our actions of power and demonstration. You are asked to allow this replenishment for yourself now, trusting that you are in a cycle of creation that is about to shift into a new phase. Release and enjoy the process without having to control or force it.”
“Isis as Lunar Queen, understands the cycles of creative power and flow. Sometimes it can be hard to let go of a desire to force, control and make things happen, to exert might and will power to bring what you wish for into being by sheer determination, exertion and force. Yet the vast creative power of the feminine principle is in honouring and flowing with cycles of activity and rest, of releasing force and surrendering into the perfection of what is happening right now, realizing that this actually brings us Divine manifestation and creation more effortlessly and gracefully and to greater effect!
The Celestial Crescent is the Moon in her changing form. This oracle comes to you at a time when you are shifting from one phase in your spiritual and creative journey into a new phase. This is a time to pay deep attention to the messages of your body and allow them to guides you. Do you need to balance your activity with more rest? Do you need to be actively creating, but from a more relaxed and allowing rather than demanding or forceful mental state? Or is it time for you to spring into action once more? Has the time come to take a step forward? Pay attention to any other card that you draw with The Lunar Queen to more fully understand which phase is more appropriate for you now. These cards will help you connect with your inner wisdom and the guidance of your own body wisdom for the greatest timing and unfoldment of your manifestation. Remember, sometimes more time in the oven prevents an undercooked meal! Sometimes we just need to wait a little longer.
The quiet times are dark moon energies, the times when you will sense from your inner wisdom, your body wisdom, that you are in need of replenishment and percolation.
The other times, when you feel the inner oven timer has rung and it is time to get that delicious meal on the table, your body will urge you to dance, to act, to communicate, to be bold and take the steps. These are full moon energies.
Your body will help you to know where you are at and what you need. The flow between the dark moon and full moon and all phases in between is constant. In allowing that flow, even several times in a day or an hour, you will maximize your creativity and allow your life to manifest creative project after creative project, should you so choose. You will feel great inner harmony, wellness, and connection.
This Oracle is also a reminder that this feminine wisdom is not widely accepted in Western culture as yet, with its distorted view of what constitutes productive behaviour. The Lunar Queen is quite a radical! You will need to really believe in your own wisdoms in as you learn to operate in this more intuitive, flexible, responsive, feminine way. The Oracle tells you that Lady Isis and the spiritual guidance that cares for you completely encourages and supports you in being strong and giving yourself absolute permission to rest when needed, to honour your creative cycles for greatest productivity and quality.
If you have been wanting to create something or feel frustrated in your creative enterprises, The Lunar Queen also contains the message for you that something creative is within you and wanting to emerge. It is stirring in hour unconscious and soon it will be reflected more clearly back to you and you shall be able to act, but for now, have patience. There can be much inner work required before the relatively swift outer work of bringing the creative impulse into form even begins! Such is the natural creative flow at times.
If you are already in the flow and want to know if this is the time to really let go and shine, like the gorgeous full moon, the answer is yes. Trust and know that you are being guided by your own inner wisdoms and supported by She of the Celestial Crescent, the Lunar Queen Lady Isis.”*

Here we are at the Full Moon and the first Lunar Eclipse of the year. The energies are powerful and anything is possible. There will be releasing; there will be a purging of sorts. There is simply no room left for anything that is not in our absolute highest good, and the Highest Good Of All. Do not be surprised if things change very abruptly, you have probably had more notice than you may think but have chosen to ignore it, or were unable to see the signs. Interestingly, the planets and the moon will align in the shape of a star during this eclipse, and the planet Jupiter will be in retrograde, which will help to slow things down a little.
The message here is to delve deeply into the aspect of the Divine Feminine ~ Receptivity and deep inner wisdom. Allow. Receive. Surrender the old and hold space for the new. Embrace possibility. Nothing is off limits here if it is in your highest and best interest, and the Highest Good of All.
Limitations will disintegrate. Blockages will melt away. Things that didn’t seem possible will seem almost too small to have wished for; you will be asked to aim higher. Things will change in such profound ways that they will simply never appear the same, ever again. You will experience a complete overhaul of your belief systems and what you see yourself as capable of.
The full moon can create a manic, frenzied energy. You are being asked here to create sacred space and to honour it. Find some silence this evening. Make time for contemplation. Perform any lunar rituals that resonate with you, such as making a crystal grid or placing your crystals outside to cleanse and absorb the energies. Light a candle. Have a sea salt bath. Use the power of your thoughts, emotions and intentions. Now is not a time of action, but one of working with the higher realms.
Bringing the unmanifest into the manifest.
Blessings from the Divine Mother Isis.
And so it is
