Birth Star Workshops

In Jyotish, the Vedic System of Astrology, this is considered one of the most important parts of the natal chart. It is the constellation that the moon was in at the time of your birth. This is the guiding light, so to speak, showing how you approach and experience your life. It shows our personality type and the karmic energy we are working with in this life. Many of us are familiar with our Moon Sign but the birth star is much more specific to you personally. This is why 3 people can have the same moon sign but be totally different. There are 3-4 constellations within each sign, totaling 27 Nakshatras (Birth Stars), so almost one for every moon phase and day. Each nakshatra has a Shakti, a particular power that is granted through the Devata (deity associated with the nakshatra) that rules it.  In this workshop we will learn about lunar rhythms, how to utilize and work with their energy, how to connect to our true nature and craft a lunar anointing oil to complement the elements in our birth star. EXACT birth information is needed for this, birthplace, birthdate and birth time. These workshops are held at different locations and are posted regularly on Instagram!

(Price varies on location)

What is Jyotish (Vedic Astrology)?

Vedic Astrology is the traditional astrology of India and part of a greater system of yogic knowledge.  While similar to Western Astrology in using planets, houses and aspects, it calculates these differently and adds many unique factors of it's own.  Vedic Astrology is a comprehensive system of astrological interpretation, containing accurate methods for examining all aspects of life including health, relationships, career and spiritual path.  It has tremendous power for guidance on how to live in harmony with the universe while helping us to understand and transcend the influence of karma and reveal our Dharma in this lifetime.

Birth Star Reading and Anointing Oil (via email)

The Birth Star shows our personality type and the karmic energy we are working with in this life. Many of us are familiar with our Moon Sign but the birth star is much more specific to you personally. This is why 3 people can have the same moon sign but be totally different. There are 3-4 constellations within each asterism, totaling 27 Nakshatras (Birth Stars), so almost one for every moon phase and day. Each nakshatra has a Shakti, a particular power that is granted through the Devata (deity associated with the nakshatra) that rules it. You will receive your birth star reading via email and anointing oil will be mailed to you to use as an aid in meditation, a possible upaya, for dreamwork or as a personal perfume.  Danielle crafts these oils personally as they are a sadhana (spiritual practice) for her.  She starts out gathering herbs that correspond with the planet that rules your particular Birth Star.  From there she combines the organic propriety herbs in an organic almond oil and allows them to Solar infuse under the Sun's rays for a full Moon cycle, full moon to full moon.  After that she chooses the scent based on the elements that correspond with your ruling planet and her intuition.  Culminating in an aromatic sensorial experience that brings the cosmos down to mingle with earth in a bottle for you.

1. MotherCraft Face Cream - The smell of Jasmine takes you on a sensory journey while soothing and rejuvenating dry, tired skin.

2. Mt. Shasta Serpentine *Kundalini Activation*Gem Elixer
The Serpentine Alchemy gives voice to all sacred knowledge and its natural green color honors the wisdom keepers of the plant and mineral kingdom. Think of the serpent that sits at the base of the spine just waiting to be awakened by the Kundalini energy. Those of you that have experienced this know what I am talking about. Though this energy rises to the higher chakras it is most beneficial when there is a groundedness present making for a more graceful transformation. The frequencies in this gem elixer will assist with just that! I encountered this particular Serpentine right below Heart Lake in Mt. Shasta.

It was a day of many blessings, transmissions and retrievals bringing forth a marriage of the root chakra and the heart chakra. Mt. Shasta has many vortexes and portals and is considered the Root Chakra of the planet. How fitting that Serpentine can be found here. An elixir is created when the patterns of a crystal, gem, flower etc. are activated in distilled water, charged and then secured with a holding agent. The frequencies can then be utilized by the body and can be taken internally or used externally as a spray so the auric field surrounding the physical body can receive the frequencies. It will aid in meditation, enhance spiritual exploration , and ultimately unite one with their Higher Self.

*take 4 drops 3-4x day. You may also add to bath, use for rituals or place directly on 3rd eye and temples! Crafted with intention under the full Capricorn moon in Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra.

3. Lemurian Quartz CrystalGem Elixer
You will retrieve ancient information with this crystal that was left to us by the Lemurians.
A very gentle, tall, heart-centered, spiritually advanced and ancient civilization of people who deeply loved the earth. It is believed that they left messages within these stones for us. For those of you not familiar with Lemuria, it was an ancient civilization that existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis. Physically it existed largely in the South Pacific and then suddenly sank into the ocean one day. The Lemurians then "moved" to the 5th dimensional city of Telos located beneath Mt. Shasta. There are physical portals to Telos located on Mt. Shasta itself but because it is 5th dimensional you can travel to it at any time and from any place.

My own experience involved many visits to Mt. Shasta over the course of a year prior to my pilgrimage there. I am beyond excited to bring this vibrational tool to you to assist in your meditations. Those who have a connection to Lemuria will feel it in their heart center as they read this. Connect with this potent gem Elixer and experience the retrieval and remembrance of who you really are. These beings are waiting to be called on.

4. Amrita Lip Balm- A blend of Olive Oil and Coconut oil infused with Calendula Flowers, Comfrey, Lavender and Plantain then combined with Beeswax to create a healing and soothing lip therapy. Organic*Gluten-Free

5. Brighid’s Well- What is Brighid’s Well? It is the well I drink from, the well I have always drunk from. Every creative endeavor, each pregnancy and birth, every bit of poetry I have written and all of the healing thus far has come from here. She is my namesake and patron Saint (my family call me by my middle name, Bridget, anglo catholic spelling) and it was my paternal grandmother’s name. She is the Celtic Goddess of fire, poetry, water, healing, childbirth, midwifery, livestock and metalsmithing. She is represented by the hearth fire and associated with the emotional warmth of the family home. Said to be present at every birth, blessing midwives in their work and protecting the children. I wore her amulet during my pregnancies and births. Her name means "Exalted One” or “High One”. It was she whom the Druids held in honor as a torch bearer of eternal light.

After Christianity took over she became St. Bridget. Her priestesses kept Brighid’s Flame lit near her well in Kildare, Ireland for thousands of years. In the 1500’s the Bishop ordered it to be put out for being too pagan. It was out for over 400yrs until the Brigidine Sisters re- established Brighid’s Flame and it has been lit ever since.

I live a life steeped in ritual that was ignited in my upbringing in a catholic household. Keeping a Brighid's Cross hanging in my home always. She is the same woman, Goddess or Saint, whatever you prefer. This glycerite was crafted for the "Mamas to Be" and contains Brighid’s allies, Blackberry Leaf and Dandelion. As an offering to Her I created this for those with child and about to give birth but this is also nourishing for women in general. This blend tones and strengthens the uterus, urinary system and liver. A great reproductive tonic. It prevents water retention and is high in Calcium and Flavonoids. Great for us Pitta people!

On a Metaphysical level Blackberry bestows the blessings of strength, determination, prosperity and protection creating healthy boundaries. Dandelion teaches the balance of humbleness and confidence and empowers the solar plexus with confident self-expression. This particular offering was crafted on Guru Purnima under Purvashada Nakshatra which is my lunar birthday/mansion and a very auspicious day in the Hindu calendar where the Guru and all teachers are honored so this is cosmically perfect! I feel as though I am also honoring my ancestors with this creation. Organic*Gluten-Free*Vegan*contains Soy based Glycerine

6. Vishuddha Thyroid Support- *The 5th Chakra* Throat, Ether, Sound, Vibration, Communication, Mantras, Creativity, Telepathy. Ruling planet is Mercury, color is blue, 16 petal lotus, elephant, Triangle, Bija Mantra is Ham, Diety is Saraswati or Gauri . Thyroid Gland, Tonsils, Shoulderstand, neck rolls, plough pose and fish pose. These are some of the things that come to mind for me when I think of Vishuddha! This energetic center has been my place of focus for so many years now. From strep throat infections as a kid to a sluggish thyroid for most of my adult life. I have used all of the holistic tools to keep this center balanced for over 15yrs now. I navigated 2 pregnancies with it and 2 post-partums. Communication has been a constant teacher and creative expression a constant necessity . My journey with my own thyroid has inspired this offering. This blend helps improve sluggish thyroid. Crafted with intention under the full moon. Organic*Gluten-Free* Vegan* Alcohol-Free*contains Soy based Glycerine

7. Kids’ Happy Belly- A blend of Peppermint and Chamomile soothes belly discomfort due to gas and colic in babies and toddlers. Organic*Gluten-Free*Vegan*Alcohol- Free*contains Soy based Glycerine.

8. Kids’ Cough & Congestion- A blend of Coltsfoot, Mullein Leaf, Hyssop and Fennel used to loosen mucus and relieve cough in babies and toddlers. This particular blend was

crafted on Guru Purnima under Purvashada Nakshatra which is a very auspicious day in the Hindu Organic*Gluten-Free*Vegan*Alcohol-Free*contains Soy based Glycerine.

9. Kids’ Respiratory Support- A blend of Thyme, Lemon Balm, Elder Flowers, Hyssop and Rose Hips used to prevent infection, clear congestion and provide vitamin C for immune support.

Organic*Gluten-Free*Vegan*Alcohol-Free*contains Soy based Glycerine

10. Danu, Mother of the God’s, Sitz Bath- Danu means "flowing one". She is the great mother of the Gods, of Ireland and the divine creator who birthed all things into being! An earth goddess who is connected to the Faery Hills and the Dolmens (portal tombs). She is the great goddess of the Tuatha De Danann, the Irish Gods, and all of them can trace their Lineage back to her. There is also mention of a Danu in the Rig Veda saying that she is the goddess of the sea...could it be the same one?!? Danu wields Earth magic to protect her children and water magic to transform them into enlightened beings.

She is one of my favorite Celtic Goddesses and was almost the name for my daughter. There is nothing quite like an herbal sitz bath after giving birth to soothe sensitive tissues and to encourage healing of the perineal area. This is in the top 3 of must haves. I also liked using it to bathe with the baby in a full bath or using it to soak sanitary pads to freeze for a pain relieving ice pack after birth. A luxurious and calming blend of Comfrey Root and Leaves, Yarrow Flowers and leaves, Lavender, Chamomile, Witch Hazel, Plantain, Red Clover, Calendula Flowers and Unrefined Sea Salt. Most of these herbs are wildcrafted or locally harvested. This Sitz Bath was crafted with intention under the full moon. Organic*Gluten- Free*Vegan*

11. Mystical Mama to Be Tea- Mystical Mama to Be Tea! Pre-Natal Vitamin in tea form. A magical and sacred blend that ones and strengthens the uterus, urinary system, nervous system and liver and promotes strong bones in mama and baby. Nettle Leaf provides Vitamin K, A, B, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium ...total superfood, this was my ally during both pregnancies. Raspberry Leaf helps with morning sickness and Blackberry Leaf provides Vitamin C and K, manganese and fiber. Both herbs tone and strengthen the Uterus. Dandelion Leaf and Root prevent Edema and strengthen liver.

I would get horrible Gallbladder attacks that would bring me to my knees in the first trimester of both pregnancies, horrific pain that had me pass out once. Gallbladder removal is pretty common in pregnant women and Dandelion really helped me to avoid that. Being a strong Pitta constitution my focus is always on my liver and detoxing. Oatstraw provides additional Calcium for mama and baby. Rosehips provide antioxidants and Vitamin C and will help with pregnancy related constipation. Roses were added for an energetic boost for the Heart Chakra, symbolizing the explosion of love to come between Mama and Babe.

I had Vitamin K drops on hand for both births but wound up not using them either time. I often wondered if this Vit K thing became a part of the birth process because women were deficient. A diet high in leafy greens and herbs like Nettle Leaf and Blackberry Leaf promise healthy Vitamin K levels. This bag offers approx. 50 cups. Organic*Gluten- Free*Vegan

12. Herbal Healing Salve- For cuts, scrapes, bites and dry cracked skin. Born from a desire to help soothe my children’s ezcema while supporting their body’s natural process. Ingredients: A Solar Infusion of Olive Oil with Calendula Flowers, Chamomile Flowers, Plantain, Yarrow and Lavender combined with beeswax to create a thick protective coating on the skin. Organic*Gluten-Free

13. Raven Veil Thinning Oil- This anointing oil is used for meditation, yoga nidra, dream work and journeying! A combination of Sacred herbs of Tulsi, Mugwort and Sage infused

in golden olive oil with the ancient aroma of Frankincense, Myrrh & Lavender. Topped off with a foraged sprig of Mugwort. This oil was created after a close encounter with a Raven in Mt. Shasta! I had been journaling at sunrise when she appeared quickly on a branch in front of me (about 2ft away) just as the sun peaked over the mountain. She peered deeply into my soul through my eyes and it moved me to read the last sentence that I had just written. The answer to the question I had been asking myself for 6 months had been answered and written out right in front of me! She has not been gentle with me at all, she represents death, transformation and magic. Think of the Tower in the Tarot! According to the medicine cards she says “you have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.” She also represents the Morrigan, Triple Goddess, in Irish mythology who was said to be part of the Tuatha De Danan, tribe of the Goddess Danu. She is know as patroness of priestesses, magic, death, birth and prophecy. She transmutes into the Raven. I encountered her closely again a year later on the Hill of Tara where she gave me another message. She came even closer this time and circled me 3 times. This oil is an offering to her and the waters she has helped me navigate! May she help you seek your answers and journey into the void of the non physical realms. These are the darker caverns but she will be by your side and I promise you will return with many gifts.

*Depending on the ruling sign for the moon each month it will bring different energies which will be specified on the shelf talkers.
