**You will receive the current Sun season and/or Full Moon book
We offer two workbooks for you to use each Sun Season. A Sun Season is a four week period when the Sun is in a specific zodiac sign. You’re probably most familiar with this period, as it determines your personal Sun sign. Each Sun Season holds one New Moon and one Full Moon. The New Moon is always in the same sign the Sun is positioned. For instance, if the Sun is in Aries, then the New Moon will also occur in Aries. The Full Moon always occurs in the opposite sign as the Sun sign. If the Sun is in Aries, the Full Moon occurs in Libra. Opposing signs sit across from each other in the sky and on the zodiac wheel.
How to use the Moon Workbooks
Working with the cosmos can help you align your energy and your life. When we tune into the Moon, the Sun, and the rest of the planets, it makes manifesting the life of our dreams easier. It also gives us a guideline on when to build energy, when to dream, and when to let go of things which no longer serve us. The Moon Workbooks were created to help you understand and harness the energy of the Moon. They guide you through the phases of the Moon and help adjust your vibration to match the cosmos.

How does the New Moon Workbook work?
TheNew Moon Workbook is actually a workbook for the entire Sun Season and the New Moon. It has been evolving over time, and we found at Spirit Daughter that many people were using this workbook throughout the entire Sun Season since that sign is the same as the New Moon. We just redesigned it this past January to make it more clear which parts are for the Sun Season and New Moon versus which parts are solely for the New Moon. There are sections for each week of the Sun Season, as well as tools which align you with that zodiac’s energy. You can begin using this book at the start of each Sun Season, or you can start using it with the New Moon. It is a personal preference. Some people prefer to use this book only on the days on and around the New Moon, which is perfectly fine. For the sections pertaining to just the New Moon, try to complete them within 72hrs of the New Moon exact. This is when the energy is the most potent, and you will feel it to a greater degree in your subtle body. It is recommended that you complete the New Moon workbook before the start of the next Sun Season.
How about the Full Moon Workbook?
The Full Moon Workbook is meant to be used on the days around the Full Moon. Again, try to complete the practices within 72hrs of the Full Moon exact. This workbook goes more in-depth in terms of practices compared to the New Moon Workbook because we simply have more energy and drive on the Full Moon. The Full Moon is a time to do the work needed to manifest the dreams planted on the New Moon. Therefore, the workbook, and the energy of the Full Moon is more intense. This work is often needed and changes with the corresponding Moon sign. For instance, the energy we work with on the Aries Full Moon is very different than the energy we work on with the Virgo Full Moon. Furthermore, the energy changes from year to year which is why each workbook is rewritten for that particular year. It is not recommended that you use last year’s workbook for this year’s Moon.

Find ingenuity in Aquarius. Enjoy our latest in our facial line up: the foam-to-powder facial cleanser.
"The independent, free-thinking Aquarius archetype encourages us toexamine our inner wild self and celebrate everything that makes us unique. It is the archetype of the reformer, the idealist who strives for tolerance, unity, and a better and brighter society. The one that strives to raise awareness, consciousness, and enlighten. And despite these rather lofty ideals, the Aquarius archetype isn’t afraid to get in there and get its hands dirty. So you may feel an urgency, an excitement to just get in there and act on your plans already.
Spiritually, the Aquarius archetype teaches us how to betrue to our own voice, to listen to and follow the calling of our own heart and soul. By learning how to tune in rather than out, by being true to the things that make us unique, we undertake the journey to individuation."
Instructions: Mix a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of powder with a small amount of warm water. Apply to moistened skin using circular motions. Rinse and follow with toner and moisturizer.

Our blend for Leo is based off an ancient perfume from the island of cypress and dating back to the roman empire. The Chypre perfume accord family is a blend of amber and musky notes such as oakmoss, labdanum, patchouli, or vetiver, with bergamot and other citrus oils, from there you can expand on it and make a floral chypre, green chypre, citrus chypre, etc. but the base is bergamot and oakmoss.
For Leo we have a basic chypre blend with oakmoss absolute, labdanum absolute, bergamot and lime. I think of this as the core essence of the Chypre family.
When thinking of essential oils that were associated with Leo and the Sun, we kept coming back to the scent of bergamot and other citrus oils. We think the association of citrus oils with the sun, and photosensitivity is interesting; almost as if the citrus is channeling the sun's energy like a magnifying glass. Our bergamot is furocoumarin free, and our lime is steam distilled (not pressed) so both are safe to use on your skin. But the association of magnifying the sun’s energetics still hold.
The labdanum absolute provides a warm, rich, resinous, ambery, incense, and balsamic note. Labdanum absolute is a resin which comes from the Rock Rose which grows in very hot dry, inhospitable locations Labdanum has a long history in ancient perfumes and incense (Egypt, Middle East, Mediterraian).
Oakmoss has an earthy wood scent with hints of musk and amber (our oakmoss if IFRA compliant).
“This Aries cycle brings the opportunity to plant the seeds of courage in our lives: the courage to face our wounds, the bravery to escape victimhood, the fortitude to embody integrity at a higher level, the audacity to initiate, the flexibility to face the unexpected. There’s a sense that something higher is urgently longing to be born in our lives. With the electricity of new life and surprising possibilities, what seeds shall we boldly plant for the adventure unfolding?” Kristi Campbell

Cancers, known for their emotional bellies and sensitivities, are aided by warming digestives that help to settle anxious upsets.
