In today’s episode, we’re exploring the difference between “collective” and “sovereign” energies and how you can work with them to make your practice feel more intentional. 

The collective energies of the universe are basically the cycles of the moon, sun, and planets, (or the moon phases, seasons, and astrology):

  • There are four moon phases, (new, waxing, full, and waning).
  • The moon moves through all twelve astrological signs in one month. 
  • There are four seasons which we experience based on the movement of the sun through the astrological signs over one year, (spring, summer, fall, and winter). 
  • There are eight seasonal sabbat celebrations, (Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, and Imbolc). 
  • The planets all move through the twelve astrological signs at different speeds. 

These cycles impact us all collectively – everyone experiences them. The sovereign energies are simply how those cycles impact YOU in your real, daily life. To learn more about how those cycles impact you, you’ll want to find out: 

  • Which moon phase you were born under so you can understand how you personally relate to the four phases
  • Which house in your chart, (which area of your life), is activated by the moon in each sign 
  • How the seasons make you feel, (which you love, maybe which you dread)
  • How the planets interact with the planets and houses in your own astrological chart

When you work with these sovereign energies, you can make your moon, sabbat, and daily rituals and all aspects of your practice feel way more personal, intentional and fulfilling!

This is just a brief overview – I’ll be getting deeper into each of these cycles in future podcast episodes! 

If you want more right away though, I’d like to invite you to join me in the Starlight Coven, a monthly program to learn my simple method for working with collective and sovereign energies.
