Natasha Keating (Maori) and Asinnajaq (Inuit) are both Indigenous artists creating strong, positive representations of women, restoring traditional arts, and telling stories that overcome stereotypes and celebrate their respective cultures in a way that empowers women. Natasha’s work reclaims images of Maori women captured in mythology using recycled native wood, infusing imagery of traditional Tā moko (sacred tattoos) and native animals. Asinnajaq’s work celebrates women through examining the Inuit practice of tunniit (traditional tattoos), and explores relationships with land, history, and culture in unique ways, by embracing traditions as well as concepts of Indigenous futurisms. Although both artists reside on opposite sides of the world, they share a history of colonialism and resilience, a sense of beauty and mystery, which align their works across space and cultures. They meet once again to collaborate on this new exhibition that continues a dialogue that began in Aotearoa (New Zealand) in the summer of 2018.

Turou hawaiki e te whānau ❤ ~Thunder Moon insight~ you're being called to take the time to really evaluate what's happening in your life right now. This cocktail of juicy alignment is pulling on the "hopes and dreams of life" strings.
To understand the kind of big deal action we're talking about, let me break down your Lunar "ingredients" 😜
Starting with your base ~FULL MOON~ heightened energy, full of abundance, heightened senses, spiritual activation, tonnes of magick etc
Second layer ~PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE~ magnetize, expand, focus, totally amplifies the current energy by 100 times
Now we're getting into the juicy part, this is what flavours our lunar cocktail 👌
The Sun is in ~CANCER~ Personal life, hobbies, relationships, emotions, soul food, what really makes you happy, communication, domestic life, family, holidays etc
The Moon is is ~CAPRICORN~ Goals, career, focus, ambition, finances, achievement, bucket lists, projects etc
As you can see, if we shake these ingredients all up together what do we get? A divine and delicious energetic dose of "AM I HAPPY WITH MY LIFE?" Really run your mind through those flavorful points of Cancer and Capricorn. Check in with yourself, do you have too much or not enough of some of those attributes. Are you grinding every day without a holiday in sight? Are unmotivated and not driven enough to hit those goals being left on the back burner?
Tune in & let this Thunder Moon guide you. She'll make it really evident what's not or what is working for you.
Ill be doing a simple abundance ritual tonight that I'll post later today. If you'd like to manifest something into reality, follow my ritual instructions and join in tonight wonder of magick.

These New Zealand softball players performed the traditional Māori haka at their first powwow.
The ISA Softball Under-18 team travels to Canada yearly. They've played Indigenous teams in the past but had never been able to attend a formal powwow.
They extended their trip to take part in the special event on Saskatchewan's Kahkewistahaw First Nation. Read the full story by clicking the link in our @cbcsask bio!
