As you know, Luna Lifted is more than jewelry. Our goal is to make a difference in the world by supporting Women focused organizations and charities. Starting August 27th - August 29th 30% of our profits will be donated to the following charities:
Charity for August 27th: KIVA
Kiva is an international nonprofit, based in San Francisco, that helps support women starting businesses, going to school, and leading their communities. Women around the world have much less access to fair and affordable credit for their businesses or basic needs. While 46% of men around the world report having access to formal financial services, the figure is only 27% for women. Kiva is the platform that creates a loan for these women. Supporters can then crowdfund the loan in increments of $25 or more.

Charity for August 28th: GEARING UP
Riding bikes & changing lives, Gearing Up creates a supportive environment through group bike rides where women can enhance confidence and life skills, strengthen physical fitness, and build emotional health. They provide women in transition from addiction, abuse, or incarceration with the skills, equipment, and guidance to safely ride a bicycle for exercise, transportation, and personal growth.

Today marks a Full Moon in Pisces, and what would a Goddess Guide post be without some sort of ritual?
Full Moons are a time to push forward the intentions you made during the New Moon. The Full Moon represents a time of amplifying energy. Prepare for transformation and the harvest of your intentions.
No matter what is brewing in your life, the energy of this Full Moon is going to help ease any intensities brought by the recent string of eclipses and retrogrades.
It's time to reflect on what we've learned and overcome. This spell/ritual is intended to help dig deep into your emotions and subconscious so you can seek your own purpose. My intention is that you find the divine messages sent by the Goddesses above. So you can live more abundantly, and feed your soul with the work it was created to do. It is here that all may become clear.
Items you may need:
-quartz crystal (or any other crystals that call to you during this ritual)
-a drawstring bag or something that will hold the crystals together (a handkerchief or piece of cloth will work)
With eyes closed, try to still your mind. Try to release any thoughts. Try not to engage with any thoughts that come through. Keep your mind still and just listen. Focus on listening to the rise and fall of your breath.
If this is too hard to do or you find yourself getting distracted, focus instead on 10 things you feel grateful for in your life. Really feel into them and allow the emotions to course through your body.
5. Affirmation to be read once you're centered:
In the luminous rays of the Moon, I ask: Why am I here? What is my purpose? Do I have a special place or goal I should be pursuing?Am I being anxious, for I have not yet found this special accomplishment I am to bring into being? Am I pressing something that is not yet to be revealed to me? Do I feel, as the years march on, that the time is now because I say it is now? I don't know. Tell me, help me, and bring me clarity.Perhaps I am already doing what I am meant to do. Perhaps my vanity thinks I should be contributing on a much higher lever. Everyone has his or her purpose. I look at nature. The ants have their place and so do the eagles. Maybe I am already fulfilling my purpose and am not aware of it. Bring me guidance through the wisdom of the all-knowing beings and energies that are enlightened. Make me aware if I have already reached my goal or if I am about to enter onto the path that leads toward it. It is my higher power that knows the way. I will be patient. In my patience I will learn what my true purpose is. I let go of the desire to know and accept that things will evolve according to the universal plan. I am here, I am ready.
AND SO IT IS.
6. Sleep with the bag of stones under your pillow or next to your bed. Pay attention to your dreams for the next three days. Look for symbols within your dreams. The answers are there for you.
