The messenger planet moved from outgoing Sagittarius to ultra-private Scorpio this past weekend, and today, December 6, it will end its current retrograde — which happens to be the final mercury retrograde of 2018.
If you've ever felt personally victimized by a mercury retrograde, by all means, take this moment to celebrate. You made it through a year that had a whopping 10 retrogrades! The shadow period ends the 23rd of December, just in time to ring in the new year. Cheers!
From the beginning of time there have been clear moments when the Portals of Awakening open for individuals to advance. The 11:11 Gateway is a collective, high-vibrational portal opening to assist the evolution of consciousness on the earth at this time.
Stepping through the gateway in a figurative sense, allows you to move into your most Evolved Self, in oneness with All That Is. The Archangels stand at the gateway to hold you in strength and courage.
Since digital clocks have come into widespread usage, the image of 11:11 has become more familiar. The representation behind the symbol is less widely known. 11 has long been the number of the Angelic Realms offering assistance to those on the Earth. When the 11s are seen together the 11:11 becomes a gateway symbolizing Heaven coming to Earth, just as the peaks of a great mountain reaches from the earth to the sky.
The most important significance of the 11:11 is its availability as a Gateway to higher consciousness, a moment in time where the Angels of Light can take your offered prayers and good intentions to assist their manifestation on the Earth. Whenever the 11:11 presents itself, it acts as a daily reminder to take that one minute to hold your dreams in your heart, acknowledge the support available from the Angelic Realms, and have the courage to affirm your willingness to move into new dimensions of Love. Gathering momentum throughout these past 20 years, a new level of Union with your Angelic Self is available at this time that offers a wondrous moment of ascending liberation from old patterns.
The new opportunities available beyond the 11:11 Gateway are greater awareness and the deeper truth of your choices and possibilities. The choice of many will be opting for the old way, and yet those who are attracted to this time of Grace, can avail themselves of the opportunity to soar, greatly empowered by the Angelic Realms. This act in harmony with Divine Light will accelerate the evolution of consciousness.

No matter your religion, belief system, or even a lack of any organized faith, very few of us won’t agree that there are just some people you “click” with. Maybe it’s “love at first sight,” but maybe it isn’t.
Sometimes those who give you that instant spark of recognition and warmth leave your life only moments after appearing — perhaps they disappear into the crowd or get off at a different bus stop, never to be seen again. Maybe you’ve even met a person you strongly disliked at first, only to find yourself connecting with them later in an epic way.
When We Connect With Soulmates
Yet there’s no denying that occasionally we meet people — sometimes as friends and sometime as more, that we can classify as Soulmates. It doesn’t matter if you believe in past lives being a factor, pure chance, or just your subatomic particles having interacted before somewhere in the universe… there are just some souls we recognize as a part of us, souls that change our lives.
It’s hard to say whether or not we all have a romantic lock for our particular key. You’ll likely meet several different kinds of kindred spirits in your life, and they will all bring lessons and growth. There may be more than one Soulmate for a particular time or journey in your life, or there may be one that emcompasses all you desire in a partner. So how do you increase your chances of meeting them?
Tips For Finding Your Soulmate
Follow your passions. Seriously. Join that club that interests you. Attend that show if you can. If they are also looking for you, you may just find them doing the things that pull you — and that passion they share with you increases the chance for two lives and paths to ultimately collide. Also, raise your vibe every day. The more joyful and kind you are, the more likely you are to draw the right person to you. You will finally be receptive to allowing your Soulmate to enter your life, to recognize them, and to have the higher vibe that will pull them into your orbit.
That’s where we come in. Luna y Soul is best when used daily to keep yourself inspired, happier, and guide you to your one true soul path.
Have questions about that special someone? Is he the one? When will I find my soulmate? We are here to answer those questions and more. Visit our booking page to book your in-depth personal session with one of us today.
As previously discussed, Runes are an ancient Viking alphabet that carries centuries of magic through their vibration. Not only does each symbol represent a letter or letters, each one has its own specific meaning. The Runes can be used in many ways such as oracles readings, healing, magic spells, as well as, magic symbols for amulets.
This second part of the series focuses upon Bind Runes. Bind Runes are different from Rune Scripts as they are not a linear representation but rather a symbolic. Runes are all created from a vertical line with angular lines. This was done because when carving on wood or a tree, it is virtually impossible to carve a horizontal line. You need to go against the tree’s natural grain. With these vertical and angular lines, it is easy to lay upon each other or stack the runes to create a symbol.
A simple Bind Rune to create is to position the Runes you choose for your intention on top of each other often using a vertical line as a base, a Linear Bind Rune. You can become more creative depending on space and intention by making an Axial Bind Rune by arranging the rune in a circular manner. Or a single stave rune by using a long vertical line as the base for the other runes in the spell extending each rune down the line not on top of each other as you would with a Linear Bind Rune. (Yes, a spell. Runes are magic and when you combine them you are creating a spell.) Your creativity is your limit. You can also create ongoing designs with the Runes with no symmetry if you wish. This is your spell with your creativity and your manifestation, let no one hinder your creative power.
Examples of Linear Bind Runes
Examples of Axial Bind Runes
Example of a Complex or Extended Bind Rune
The importance of creating Bind Runes or any Rune Magic is intention and the state of being you are in at the time of the ritual. It is important to be of a light and neutral state not one of intense emotion, such as anger or sadness. The energy you are in will be infused into the amulet or symbol.
There are two ways of selecting the Runes you want to use. You can choose them out of the bag or pile similar to pulling oracle cards and let the Runes tell you what you need. Or you can choose the Runes on their meaning for what you want to infuse into the spell or meaning of the Bind Rune.
Always, if possible, create a sacred space with candles and incense and with intention. If you do not have those available to you and you may be in an emergency situation to create one, intention can create that space for you. Once you have chose the Runes, your imagination is called upon. You will need a pen and paper and if you are really pro then your colored pencils or Sharpies. It is good to have a ruler or straight edge to help you keep everything uniform. Remember this is magic and it does not have to be perfect, it is the intention that counts.
Of course, if you are working with stone or wood, you will need additional gear such as eye protection, gloves, and a Dremel.
There is no recipe to this part. You start with the center line and then Rune by Rune find how they fit together. As each Rune is placed, you will see other places to place your remaining Runes. You will find new Runes you had not selected appearing in your spell and that is ok, it is meant to happen. For whatever reason, you need that additional Rune.
This is rarely a one time try ritual. Often you will be frustrated and ball up the sheet because one line is too long or the angle didn’t match the others, it is ok! The calmer you can be the more power you are putting into your final result. And your final result may look nothing like what you had in mind at the very beginning.
Here is an example of one of mine:
These are the Runes I invoked to put into the Bind Rune, meaning that I chose them as an oracle to see what they chose for this spell.
These are the Runes for communication, action behind the scenes, intuition, new beginnings or projects, protections and happiness.
These are the Runes I choose consciously to add to the symbol.
These are the Runes of being on your path, self-sacrifice, success, love or your God given gift, magical protection and wealth.
Now remember they are alive with thousands of years of magic so they created these following Runes without my intention. They just kind of showed up.
These meanings are knowledge, unexpected change, change, cycles and rewards, planting the seeds, travel and family.
Here is what the final product looked like:
I apologize its not nice and fancy but since I just moved I have not even a Sharpie in my house. So obviously you can make it very pretty on nice paper or leather or wood with nice markers or tools to carve. This was a very complex Bind Rune with 12 Runes but 18 came out. Normally its best to keep it simple with 3-5 Runes but again, there are no rules.
Once you know the meaning of the Runes you can do this just doodling away in class or oat work to create some magic when you are in a situation. Create one for happiness, protection, wealth, and love to make an amulet with you to carry. You can make it into a piece of jewelry to wear. Just remember that there are no rules and have fun with it but always respect the power of the Runes and of Magic.
Runes are an ancient Viking alphabet that carries centuries of magic through their vibration. Not only does each symbol represent a letter or letters, each one has its own specific meaning. The Runes can be used in many ways such as oracles readings, healing, magic spells, as well as, magic symbols for amulets.
In ancient times, the seeker of knowledge or protection or whatever they want to summon, would go to an Oracle and present what they desired. The Oracle would then go into a trance and the Runes would pick themselves for the person and their desire and present themselves in a certain order to the Oracle to them create an amulet for the client. Rune Scripts were carved into swords, shields, baby’s cribs and on house doors, as well as, into jewelry to be worn.
Rune scripts are the base for a customized symbol script that can be used for a personal amulet. Depending on what you would like to manifest or bring into your life, certain and specific runes can be designed to invoke those things to come to you. The design or symbols can be doodled on paper at school or work, engraved into a piece of jewelry to be worn, or a stone to be carried with you, or mediated upon, the options are endless! The Rune Script is like a mini magical spell that goes with you everywhere.
When you feel the need to bring in a certain theme into your life, abundance, health, love or a combination, a series of Runes can be chosen. These can be written in a shape or in a straight line as a “script”. I, personally, will meditate on the person and their goal and select a number of Runes to work their magic to invoke those ideas into the person’s life. Once the Rune Script is designed, a binding spell is done using intention and oils in the presence of candles, crystals and incense.
The magic of the Runes is undeniable. With 25 symbols in the Elder Futhark system, you can create many limitless scripts to invoke all of your dreams into your life. These scripts can also be used to reduce conflict and surround yourself and family with protection. Let your inner creative and magical freak fly!
