New Moon in Aries – Time for “I”

New Moon in Aries – Time for “I”

Aries New Moon

March 24th 2020/ 9.28am (UK time)

These past few weeks have shown us both our vulnerability and adaptability. It has been a tough time for people who have to keep going to work, for those who have lost their jobs or salary,  those with anxiety and for children who are being told not to go out or mingle with their friends. We have seen the dark side of humanity – the greed and the lack of empathy for the vulnerable by stockpiling food and essentials, not following the Government policies on Covid-19. At the same time the amount of kindness pouring into the world right now is simply stunning.

It has been hard to stay calm and positive when Social Media is full of anger and complaints. I keep falling back into my heart chakra to keep centred. People have been angry and standing up for what they believe in – to be considerate e.g. leaving enough food for others, staying away from people especially the elderly and to be kind.

All of this is a wakeup call for us humans. We have been living out of our egos for too long. The Universe and Mother Earth has been pushed to extreme that something had to give. It doesn’t matter how the virus started, it is when it ends that is crucial.

Notice how the skies are clear and there is less noise pollution now? This time last year, my Facebook feed would have been full of people posting their holiday snaps and check-ins to some amazing places. Now I see posts about creative projects, homemade goodies and how their children are coping with the #stayathome situation. One friend even posted a photo of his badly cut hair as a project to entertain the kids!

This really shows how resilient and adaptable we really are. The Universe is also showing us that we need to get back to basics. The New Moon is encouraging us to take personal responsibility for our lives.

The energy is in SELF. How can “I” make a difference? How can “I” change my life? What can “I” do? These are the questions that will be swirling in some of our minds this week.

For Empaths and lightworkers, you will feel a little challenged. This may come from financial difficulty or feeling a little fragile spiritually. If you are self-employed then the climate of uncertainty will be difficult to navigate. Use your tools and inner wisdom to think out of the box. I know some who talk about meditation a lot but never actually do it to help themselves. Tap into your tools and listen to your soul. The ideas and inspirations are within you. I also feel some of us will be feeling a new “calling” whether it is spiritual or for your own sense of purpose.

This New Moon will help us review where we are putting our energy into. Reflecting on what is working and what is not. This is important as you will tempted to keep going and pushing in an area that is clearly not bearing fruit.

The physical effect of this New Moon is rather strong. Some of us may have had some very intense dreams, particularly feeling like we are “out of this world”. I feel many have been connecting with the galaxy. I have also felt very spacey and been waking up with a massive headache the last few days.

The New Moon appears on the 24th which numerology totals to 6. Six has a very loving and stable energy. It brings a message of choices and also about working together. It also shines a light on home life, many of us are experiencing it right now, except it feels very restricted due to the virus. When we add “3” (March) to 6, we get 9, which encourages us to integrate the physical, intellectual and spirituality. Nine is also seen as one that reminds us to control our impulses.

There is also a sense of “emptiness” which I relate to the solar plexus and sacral chakras taking a big hit from what is happening in the world. Recharge your chakras by meditating and focusing on these two areas.

Exercise:

Get yourself comfortable. Dim lights, incense and a comfy chair or seat on the floor.

Put this music on your earphones https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D9zNi1uTL0. Close your eyes, take a nice deep breath in and release your breath slowly. In your next breath in, focus on the area between your chest and belly button. Just feel the area and imagine you are breathing in and out of that area. Listen to the music, relax and just go with the flow. Stop when you feel you are ready. Have some tea or water next to you to drink and chill for a while. Write down anything that comes to your mind.

Ritual

  • Smudge – Sage the house using good quality Californian white sage. Start at the front of the house and go around the house to push sage smoke all around the house. Finish at the same place you started. Use a small clean bowl of smudge bowl with a small amount of sage and add as you go otherwise you will overwhelm the house with smoke.
  • Take a moment to meditate and bring calm to your body and mind
  • Write down your intentions list. Put down five things you would like to manifest. Be specific and things you can realistically make happen with some effort. Putting down winning the lottery which has a complex energy will not be effective.
  • Sleep with crystals – if you have rose quartz, amethyst and or black tourmaline. Don’t worry if you don’t have all three. Place whatever you have into your pillow case and sleep. They will give you that extra energy buzz to bring calm in the storm right now.

In summary, it is important to stay positive and sensible right now. Put your energy into manifesting what you need to bring in a new cycle of energy to work with the Universe. Keep your energy field uplifted with music, meditation and positive activities. Time for self care and being kind to yourself.

I will be doing some lives on the Facebook page and group to give you some tools to work on while you are at home. So do make sure you LIKE my page. Do comment below if you have any questions or want to share your story.

MERCURY GOES DIRECT
MARCH’S SUPER FULL WORM MOON IN VIRGO
MARCH 9 2020 – 5.47PM

BE RESILIENT
TAKE ACTION
DON’T LET EGO LEAD YOU

Mercury turns direct today! The time to be passive and slow down is thankfully over. I mentioned in February when it first started to retrograde not to sign any contracts, avoid signing important paperwork and crucially, to be aware of communications. It was also the time to anticipate transportation or electrical items breakdown. Many of you have faced a troublesome Mercury Retrograde. I know of a friend who bought a TV and had tonnes of issues with it, having bought the wrong mount, faulty item sent which got her really frustrated. Then her hoover broke down! I told her why and she said “you should have told me” I said, I did – its on my page 😁 We had a big laugh about that but I suspect she will be reading my guidance from now on!

So as Mercury Retrogrades between today and tomorrow (depends on your timezone) you will see those things that were “stuck” moving forward. Retrogrades often puts things into a limbo and when it turns direct, we will see ourselves playing catch up.

I used the low energy to plan, play with ideas in my mind, take heed from dreams and meditate as much as possible to get my ducks in a row so to say. Now as the energy picks up this week, I can put things into action. This is how I use difficult energy periods.

As Mercury moves out of our awareness, the Full Moon starts to muscle in with vigorous energy and enthusiasm.

This month’s Full Moon is called the Worm Moon (based on the Almanac) and said to be special as its the first one of the decade. We are going to hear a lot of the “first of this decade” a lot this year!

The Worm Moon symbolises the start of spring and emphasis is on renewal. It is also about putting the difficult time behind us and looking into the future to make solid plans.

Something tells me that many of us will be revisiting some old ideas or conversations that started in the end of Jan/beginning of Feb with fresh eyes and hearts. At times we need to either heal and let go of certain situations or flip it so it works for us in the future.

The Full Moon is in Virgo which encourages us to put in the work, focus and determination without being too emotional. Have you been grappling with some issues recently which made you feel very emotional? This means you are making decisions based on the heart not logically. Virgo helps us be more practical, logical but don’t be stubborn or egoistical about it.

We will see delays lift and new ideas flooding in. Spring into action, take charge and move forward.

On top of this, the full moon is also a super moon so expect to feel a little heady, ringing in the ears, static around your body.

My Spirit Guides have asked me to share this with you while I was in meditation this morning:

The combination of the all the above is activating the Thymus. This gland is located between your throat and your heart Chakra just below where your your collar bone meet. The Thymus helps to fight illnesses and part of your immune system. It is particularly important and vital this is happening now with the COVID-19 scare.

EXERCISE:

Here is a quick exercise:

Put this music on and listen with a headphone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adMPdzE31D8
Leave some water or herbal tea, paper and pen next to you.

Sit comfortably with your eyes closed.

Think of love and bring to mind something or someone you love.

Place your dominant hand on just below your collar bones, and tap gently 5 times. Listen to this music and breathe in and out slowly. Try to hold your breath for a few seconds before you breathe out slowly.

Open your eyes when you feel you need to. Drink some water or tea and write down anything that you saw, felt or heard. Ask yourself what it means to you and your life now.

First New Moon of 2020 Ritual & Guide

First New Moon of 2020 Ritual & Guide

** NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS **
Jan 24 2020
9.42pm UK Time
January has seen some pretty heavy energy about which has affected people. We have been struggling and the days have felt very long and challenging. Depending on where you are in your journey, this month would have proved troublesome.
Did you feel like a firefighter having to put out fires everywhere ? We have been kept on our toes, trying to solve problems and yet, there was clarity on how to get things moving.
Sometimes we have to be in the eye of the storm to be forced to find a way out.
The New Moon will bring some harsh truths to us. We have to face them in order to correct our flaws, improve and be better people.
I always find New Moons to be an emotional trigger. We lose people we love at this time. Most people find this difficult to hear but I have seen a pattern emerge over the years.
Emotions run high and the energy feels dense. As I said, there will be clarity and healing as we go on.
Listen to your intuition as ideas and solutions are flooding in, however we must be ready to listen. Don’t bury your head in the sand.
New Moons always bring a fresh start to old problems. This moon brings partnerships and people to help with career or business. So keep your eyes and ears open to possibilities.
This could plant seeds for success in 2020
Don’t make impulsive decisions or do something to “show them” which both come from a negative space. Open your heart to positive words, ideas and see the good in people.
Be careful of what you put out whether its social media or in spoken word. If you are angry with someone then deal with it or process it privately. Putting it out there will only encourage gossip and propel you into dramas that you don’t need at the moment.
The Aquarius sign signals stubbornness and also compassion. So open your heart to see what you are holding on to which may be emotional rather than logical. This could be something that is holding you back. We are also being asked to be compassionate to even those who are against us.
The New Moon falls on the Lunar New Year on the 24th which brings us the Year of the Rat. Like the rat, hard work and being industrious and quick witted will be beneficial. Don’t put off something that you can do today.
The Year of the Rat is also one of being ambitious so dream big!
Here is my New Moon ritual to help you navigate through this energy
 

Meditation:

This New Moon encourages to be more heart-centred.  Meditate to this beautiful music with your eyes closed and with a flower of your choice in your hands. I do this with roses usually yellow or red. Just let your flow with the music and chant.

I guarantee you will feel all tingy, light and your body will soften with this gorgeous meditation.

Please do share and comment if this resonates with you.

Blessings,

Angela

2020’s First Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Guidance

2020’s First Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Guidance

Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 2020

January 10, 2020 – 07:21 pm (GMT/BST)

This Full Wolf Moon is going to help us clean things up in our lives. The tussle between the mind and the heart has been happening for too long.  As humans we tend to keep doing the things to keep the status quo and often try not to ruffle any feathers.

The time has come however to take a deep look at areas of our lives that need to be reviewed. This means being true to yourself. Are you doing what you should be doing?

The sign of Cancer influencing the Full Moon means there is a very sentimental edge to this energy.  This will help you see your relationship with others and make the necessary changes to clear the way for a healthier relationship with yourself. We can outgrow relationships but still hang on whether its friends or family. Facing the truth and realising how you feel will help to release or shift the power struggle.

Eclipses can shake things up! So we will see some interesting news that will shake things up a little. Don’t fear this as it will bring some positive change.

The energy feels very direct and encouraging. We are being asked to get more organised and sort things out to prepare for a busy few months. This means getting paper work sent off, details looked and to stop procrastinating.

These are things that hold you back and stop the Universe from being able to manifest.

We are being asked to reconnect with people, find those who “get you” and step into our power.  There is so much divide and pain in the world right now so it is important to come together as one. This feels appropriate as the full moon is also called the Wolf Moon. As we know wolves hunt in packs. So look at areas in your lives where you need to work together or connect with others.

Mother Moon helps us find this in our hearts and lead the way.

For those who did my New Year ritual below just follow No 3 from the ritual for the Full Moon;

On Jan 1st evening – sit quietly or do this with the family even with the kids. Put some paper and pen around the table. Put some nice relaxing music. Here is my suggested list. Try each one and see how it resonates with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owVazx83hcc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY4oDD8ol_M or this beautiful music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=def3-73gR-U  Light some sage or incense. Close your eyes and breath in and out a few times until you feel the body relax. Allow yourself to let go. Let your mind drift along with the music.  Open your eyes when you are ready. Pick up the paper and start writing the things you NEED in 2020. E.g. – A new house, a relationship, a new job, a better boss, husband or girlfriend to be more understanding, more money, a new car etc. Put this into an envelope and put it somewhere visible. Write “Intentions 2020”  Put this in your Full Moon fire on Jan 10.

Full Moon Ritual:

You will need:

  • Sage
  • Safe pot or vessel 
  • Lighter
  • Water 
  • Glass bowl 
  • Intentions list (pen and paper) 

Instructions:

  1. Sage the house -Keep your thoughts positive, switch off the phone and focus on the ritual. Use good quality sage to smudge the house.  Put it in an unused heat proof bowl and place it on a tray with a lighter and a feather. Stand near your front door, close your eyes ask Archangel Michael to ground and protect you. Ask him to surround you with his healing light. Start smudging the front door using the feather to push the smoke to the area, and then walk around the house, letting the sage smoke touch every window, door, electrical product, pillows, bed  and things such as phones, laptops and tablets. End your ritual by going back to the door, facing north and send out a prayer asking for a positive and happy for you and your family. 
  2. Cleanse your crystals – if you have any crystals in the house then full moons are the perfect time to cleanse them. This is particularly important with crystals that you use close to your body. Take note that some crystals are water sensitive. Do not put amber, turquoise, red coral, fire opal, moonstone, calcite, kyanite, kunzite, angelite, azurite, selenite into water.  Put the crystals in some cooled boiled water into a glass bowl and cover with cling film. Leave overnight to bask in the full moon energy.  You can leave the bowl with water without the crystals overnight and then dip the crystals and then place on a kitchen towel to dry off.  I have done this for a while with my water sensitive crystals without any issues. Use the water in your shower/bath or into your plants. 
  3. Intentions list – This is an important aspect of manifesting and harnessing  Full Moon energy.  Do this before you start the ritual. Put some paper and pen near you and put some nice relaxing music. Here is my suggested list. Try each one and see how it resonates with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owVazx83hcc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY4oDD8ol_M or this beautiful music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=def3-73gR-U  Light some sage or incense. Close your eyes and breath in and out a few times until you feel the body relax. Allow yourself to let go. Let your mind drift along with the music.  Open your eyes when you are ready. Pick up the paper and start writing the things you NEED right now. e.g. – A new house, a relationship, a new job, a better boss, husband or girlfriend to be more understanding, more money, a new car etc. Once you have smudged the house with sage, go outside with your list(s) and a fire safe pot or area in the garden. If you don’t have a garden you can use a safe pot and do this in your balcony. Put the rest of your sage that you used earlier into the pot. Hold your intentions list and close your eyes (outside). Ask Mother Moon to help bring you what you need. Burn each page slowly. I like to have a lit candle near me so the paper catches fire quickly and burns faster. Let it drop into the pot and let it burn. For those who did my New Year ritual and wrote down your intentions, you can go ahead and burn your list. No need for a new list unless you want to.

Happy Full Moon and Lunar  Eclipse!

Five Powerful Ways to Start 2020

Five Powerful Ways to Start 2020

Before you dismiss 2019 as a bad year – STOP and reflect on what happened over the past 12 months. Analyse every difficult situation to understand the learning lesson, how it pushed you to make changes. You see, if we dismiss each year like most do at the start of a new year, we miss out on vital knowledge that we need to react, do things and approach things differently.

The more we can analyse the challenges in the past, then the trends, patterns and learning points will be clear. You also start to see how you have grown over the year.

For example if you were forced to end a relationship with a friend or family member then once your have gone past the pain and negativity, you will find something in that situation that you can take forward.

Did you stand up for yourself? Did you realise that you shouldn’t have meddled in a situation? Did you feel better afterwards?

For example if the relationship ended because of your temper then you need to work on that in the new year.  Facing the facts will ensure you have the right tools in 2020.

Or perhaps you felt like a victim? The question is why? Was it the other person? What could you have done to change things?  Then it’s time to let go.

We have to be conscious of our actions and situations to be able to learn from them and do things differently.

There this is phrase that is used to death at this time of the year – New Year, New You. Well a change of dates doesn’t automatically bring about a new you!

Most of us drag our existing self along with the baggage and issues, into the new year but losing the baggage or changing its contents,  reassessing the route and tweaking the journey along the way will help you lead a lighter and happier 2020.

A lot of us set ourselves for failure at the start of the year as we feel the new dates will magically conjure up a totally new life and experience but then get upset as it feels the same the year before.

A more realistic and reflective attitude sets your expectations low and when things do turn for the better then you can rejoice at the achievements.

There are plenty of things to do to prepare energetically for the New Year.

Here are my top 5 tips:

  1. De-clutter and clean the house. Get rid of rubbish, wipe down the window sills, mop the floors, change the bedding, and vacuum the house. Do this ON or BEFORE December 31st . Do not do this on Jan 1st!  Do not clean or wash clothes on Jan 1st. It is believed that you will wash away your good luck if you do! Energy wise, it is good to clean and de-clutter as it changes the energy in the house and makes space for new things as well as luck.
  2. Sage the house -Keep your thoughts positive, switch off the phone and focus on the ritual. Use good quality sage to smudge the house.  Put it in an unused heat proof bowl and place it on a tray with a lighter and a feather. Stand near your front door, close your eyes ask Archangel Michael to ground and protect you. Ask him to surround you with his healing light. Start smudging the front door using the feather to push the smoke to the area, and then walk around the house, letting the sage smoke touch every window, door, electrical product, pillows, bed  and things such as phones, laptops and tablets. End your ritual by going back to the door, facing north and send out a prayer asking for a positive and happy for you and your family. 
  3. On Jan 1st evening – sit quietly or do this with the family even with the kids. Put some paper and pen around the table. Put some nice relaxing music. Here is my suggested list. Try each one and see how it resonates with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owVazx83hcc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY4oDD8ol_M or this beautiful music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=def3-73gR-U  Light some sage or incense. Close your eyes and breath in and out a few times until you feel the body relax. Allow yourself to let go. Let your mind drift along with the music.  Open your eyes when you are ready. Pick up the paper and start writing the things you NEED in 2020. E.g. – A new house, a relationship, a new job, a better boss, husband or girlfriend to be more understanding, more money, a new car etc. Put this into an envelope and put it somewhere visible. Write “Intentions 2020”  Put this in your Full Moon fire on Jan 10.
  4. Balance: It is important to cleanse and balance the body as well as the home. Clear the energy with these Chakra tune up that you can either meditate to or put on your earphones and listen to as you fall asleep so it can work its magic as you sleep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9WasL59vOs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCpBSnYBTM0
  5. On Jan 1st – as a final cleansing, mix in a tiny bit of turmeric powder in a cup of water. Use an unused cup or tumbler. Don’t use too much turmeric as it stains so you want very little. Close your eyes and breathe in and out before you start. Think of Archangel Michael or any God of your faith. I always think of Michael as well as Goddess Lakshmi the God of Prosperity. Say in your mind “(insert name) please bless this house and all of us with good health, prosperity and happiness in 2020”. Start at the front of the house and work your way through the house from top to bottom. Take a leaf and dip into the water and sprinkle the corners of each room. Go back to the front of the house and pour out any leftover water on the front garden.

I really hope you follow my suggested rituals above as it will truly change the energy for 2020 and bring you a lot of new changes that will enhance your life. Most importantly do it with a positive mind and focus on what you need in your life. The Universe has your back! Just give it a chance.

Please do leave a comment and let me know how it goes.

Much love,

Angela
