New Moon Giveaway: Ostara Offering

Happy New Moon!

Here is another beautiful giveaway welcoming in the Spring! And OH MY it is a good one!


I am Magic by Katelyn Demidow

Another lovely reader will win a Intuitive Stone Reading from Tarot Kristy!

Here is a little info about what she does:

Hi everyone! I’m Kristy. I've been talking to rocks for what seems like forever. I’d love, more than anything, to be able to explain how I go about doing what I do. That’s easier said than done though. You see, each reading is completely different from the one before it. And it’s simply because each person is so very different. Each soul heals a different way. I let my intuition guide my hand, and Mother Earth my mind during the readings I give. She has a message that is both personal and special for each person I read for. It is through these tiny pieces of her that we are able to see and hear that message.

 I do not focus my readings on prediction, but on a wider view of your path, your journey, your purpose and challenges – a focus which may provide us with a likely possibilities every now and then, but centers deeply on what you are here to do, where you need healing, and how to create the future you hope to achieve. I help you identify the things you need to focus on in order to heal, grow, and reconnect yourself with Mother Earth.
Her links:

She was so kind and gave me a reading, and I must say I was so touched. She knows each of her stones like an old friend, and each stone's story resonated with me and my current situation. Her reading was reaffirming, soothing, and I learned about a new stone among the many she pulled for me! I really loved it and I am sure you will too.


Last, and certainly not least, one last lovely reader will win a custom Incense blend made by Laura Emily. 
In the words of Laura Em:

Giving away one custom Spring loose incense pack guided by spirit to aid you in your best intentions for the coming Spring. Custom incense pack will be made from a selection of herbs that have been cleansed and charged under the full and new moon. These custom incense blends are approached with sacredness and ceremony, allowing Spirit to guide me in finding the flowers and herbs that are calling for your attention. Custom incense pack will include a small branch of traditional white sage to smudge and cleanse off my energy before burning, along with a charcoal burning block. Burn the incense through the coming Spring season to assist you in your best intentions. 

Laura Emily's new launch on March 20th under her name Laura Emily, LLC. If this video doesn't give you goosebumps, I don't know what will.

About Laura Emily:
may you build a beautiful life, reflecting earth and looking towards the sun + moon.  
it is my ultimate desire to assist you on that path, tending the fire, examining the roots, and facing the morning sun together as we build something beautiful. Recently Good Earth Living, my herbal practice stretched and danced, but was ready to be laid down to rest, making room for spirit-filled intentions and gifts from my heart to yours. Pull up a seat with one of my ecourses on holistic and spirit led living, become a certified coach through my Apothecary Circle, and by all means, pass me the tea and lets chat one-on-one about the vision you desire to manifest. Love, how can I support you in this?

Goddess Workshops: Aphrodite, the Love Goddess

This year I am working with more Goddess energy again. 
It also has to do with my word of the year, Nest.

But honestly, I just miss Goddess, my Divine Mother.
For me, working with Goddess energy is so empowering, uplifting, and brings me back to my center. I feel I can touch the wisdom of my ancestors, the ancients, and the goddesses who inhabited the old world; I am a part of that line keeping the old ways strong. It is so powerful and humbling to me.

So I am starting with self-love with Goddess Aphrodite. I want to build a Nest of self-love in my being again. And I want to share this journey with you all. This is the first of the many Goddess workshops I am creating this year. The workshops dances around the Lunar phases (she is after all the symbol of Goddess), and helps you to create your own dance with the Love Goddess.

Venus/Aphrodite (note: I use the Roman and Greek names interchangeably) gets a bad rep sometimes. I actually used to really dislike her. I was turned off by the idea of all the lovers she's had and I thought it was so "cliche" to work with her. 

Why did I get so defensive when it came to Aphrodite? 

The truth is, she reflected all of the self-love, sensuality, self-worth I was missing in my life.

It took a long time to admit that to myself. But as soon as I did, I began to build a relationship with her and the love for myself grew. I looooooooove the smell of roses now (I used to HATE it!), and  I feel more comfortable in my skin.

It is time to come back to her.

The 4-week workshop will include:

~3-4 emails in your inbox per week focusing on each of the Lunar phases and how to work with the Goddess through each phase
~Goddess lore of Venus/Aphrodite
~Lunar wisdom
~meeting your Inner Love Goddess
~rituals to manifest love
~journaling prompts
~love recipes
~a complete ebook at the end to use whenever you want
~Private FB group for a loving community of support

I personally am focusing on self-love, but any love you wish to create is in the realm of Venus.We start in the New Moon phase of building our Love intentions, gathering our items. We build upon our actions in the Waxing phase. Manifest and Celebrate under the Full Moon. Resting in Love as Luna wanes. Each email and week build on one another as we work through each phase together.

This is going to be a beautiful experience. I hope you will join me.

It starts on the New Moon of March 11th.

The first 30 souls to register will also receive a free gift of love and magick, from me.

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter

Happy Moon Day everyone!

Reflecting and Big Plans for 2013

Hey dolls,

I know, I know. I feel like I am a stranger at my own blog now-a-days. I always forget how trying and hectic this season is for me when all I want to do is hibernate. Don't we all?

I missed my first Moon Days post too :( I had my last final that Monday too, but at least school is over for now and I can put more focus on to my blog. I am realizing that planning blog posts should be a priority for each month, so for 2013 that is my goal!

I have been reflecting on this year and what I want for next year. So many opportunities opened up for me and I am so grateful. I have met so many wonderful people, I created my first e-course, I have made more loving decisions, my little shop is budding, and I feel more on track with my soul purpose than ever.

For 2013 I keep hearing the words nest and self-care. I think that is what Spirit wants me to work on and focus in on the next coming months. I need to simplify my home space (and save for an actual place of our own) and take care of me consistently.


I have plans for Moondaughter too :) I am so so so excited to share these when the time is right:

Goddess Workshops: I will be creating Goddess workshops for different Goddesses I have worked with and want to work with more. It will be aligned with the Moon phases and how to work with each Goddess according to the Moon phases; each lesson builds on one another and you will get the full e-book at the end. The lessons will automatically go to your email for 4 weeks at a time, so you can purchase these workshops anytime and use them for any Moon cycle you want! Goddesses I am including so far are:
  • Venus/Aphrodite: Attracting love and Self-love Queen
  • Baba Yaga; Crone and Shadow work
  • Triple Goddess: working with the Maiden, Mother, and Crone
  • Artemis: Goddess of Independence
  • Brighid: Fiery Goddess of Empowerment
  • Maeve: Warrior Goddess of women's cycles
Please let me know what other Goddesses you may like to work with! I am open to all suggestions! Comment or Email me at marissa(dot)moondaughter @ gmail(dot)com

Healing Sessions: I am becoming certified in Crystal Healing and my Reiki Master Level III very soon, so look out for Healing sessions that I will add to the shop this next year. I will offer Reiki only sessions, Crystal/Reiki sessions, and make custom healing kits, I will keep you updated!

And (Fingers Crossed!)...

2014 Lunar Calendar and Workbook: I really want to create this calendar for 2014. It will be based on the Lunar cycles, so it will not look like the normal calendar we typically use. It will include rituals, activities, journal prompts, and a lot more to work through your Lunar year. 

I also want to include more giveaways and guest posts, and a new feature or two... A LOT of plans and changes!! It should be an amazing Year!

I hope you all have an amazing holiday! I may still be pretty absent for a while. We will be on the road to Oklahoma for the holidays. We really like roadtrips. So I may not have access to a computer for a little bit. 

I love you all and I will see you very soon!

For now go check out my DIY on the Mama Earth Project:

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter
