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,

November Full Moon in Taurus

November Full Moon in Taurus

Nov 12 2019

1.34pm UK Time

Full Moon in Taurus Beaver Moon 

Full Moons are all about completion and often very illuminating (pun intended).  We see things come to full circle around the full moon (1-2 days before and after) especially things that started on a new moon or the last full moon. Over the years I have kept track of certain aspects of my life and see this link emerge and found it absolutely fascinating. This is one of the reasons why I write these guides and share my knowledge with my readers.

When we see these links, and then join the dots together, patterns appear and offer us the full picture. Image this being a treasure hunt and the purpose is your life. Interesting right? Life would be much easier to navigate if we knew then to start a new job or the right time to get into a relationship or the type of people to avoid. We know this but as we grow older, the more information gets pumped into our senses and the more caught up we are in LIFE as we know it, that the light that is inner knowledge, dims.

This month’s full moon will illuminate certain areas of our lives from relationships to health. Cracks are starting to appear and show themselves to you. The time has come to focus on fixing it not patching things up and hoping they will go away. So expect hidden truths to be revealed to you in the form of health to truths that need to be dealt with. If you have been trying to hide from yourself then the universe will make it impossible to ignore.

2019 has been a year of up and downs and unpredictability. Shows you where you are most vulnerable to help you fix things. Health in particular – yours and others close to you would have been a focus. Tells you who you need to prioritise and to take better care of yourself.

The first half of 2020 will be busy trying to find solutions. It will be pointless if you don’t know what you need to resolve, hence the energy is doing it for you now. Be true to yourself and try to see what you know need attention.

Collective consciousness is being pushed forward by unrevealing vulnerability – from politics, weather to our loved ones. The reason for this is that the way forward is to work together, to support and nurture together. We cannot stand alone and hope to be counted. We are being asked to help, share and be there for others. This is the only way the world is to survive.

I suppose many of us in this very modern world think the system will do it for us, but actually it is in the hands of everyone to make sure we are okay. There will be system failure in the New Year but I don’t know how it will materialise just yet. I am sure though that we will have to work together to help each other.

As a result, people’s struggles will be more and more visible. Many of us will want to share our pain and stop trying to do it alone. Instead of being judged (will happen but rise above it), there will be support.

This is a cleansing and powerful Full Moon because of the influences – Scorpio ad Taurus! These power animals pack a punch and bring immense strength. Scorpions are small but powerful yet the Bull is big but a hardworker plus very loyal.

Taurus influences our need for stability, loyalty and planning the future while Scorpio tests our patience. The two energies will bring a push and pull effect on our material vs spiritual alignment.

How will it affect us? Well we will need to have more balance in terms of our material needs e.g money, clothes, earthly pleasures while embracing what our soul wants – spiritual contentment, calm, happiness, your body, life purpose and community.

So with Scorpio influencing the Metro Retrograde right now, there is a battle of wills – yours and your Soul. Taurus doesn’t like change but the Full Moon and the Retrograde is all about CHANGE.

Your situation and our world cannot move forward without change. If we had all resisted technology then there would have not been change and advancement in humanity. If there had not been change, then the old regimes will still be in full force. Change shakes up our sense of stability yet it also stabilises us in the long term.

So if you are going through a divorce or a big career change, then yes it will be difficult when it happens but once it is over, you will find that it happened in your best interest.

Our values are bring changed and challenged. More and more people will be taking to the streets and I see that happening by the February Full Moon as well. In fact this will make decision makers have to listen to the collective voice.

Taurus with the influence of Venus brings about love in all forms. Relationships to seeking to learn to love yourself better. Some of you will benefit from travel and learning from other cultures to grow. Travel has taught me to adapt and also to open my mind. I have lived in three countries and been around the world, sometimes in difficult circumstances. I would not be the person I am without travel.

This Full Moon will also shine a light on your emotional needs. What do you want more of and what do I need to let go of? Can I help someone else? There is an opportunity to take someone under your wings and show them the way. You will feel uplifted and energised by this.

Your boundaries will also be tested. Are you too rigid? Have you put up a fence so strong that no one can reach you? Past hurt will come back into your life and will test you. This is necessary to help you understand where you are with your boundaries. It will also help you heal and let go.

The next few weeks will also test your patience with other people. With the festive season looming, most people will be under pressure to buy gifts, present the best Christmas table and have to deal with difficult people. So patience and pressure sometimes cause tempers to flare.  Take a step back and think before you act.  It works both ways, if you are feeling angry then try to take yourself away from situations that frustrate you.

The Native Americans call it the “beaver moon” or the “frost moon” which is not hard to understand due to the weather in some countries. The beavers take shelter and load up their food supply at this time. So this is the time to prepare for the next few months. Therefore we are being encouraged to work on the areas of our lives that need to nurtured, feed our curiosity and start looking at the future.

There are loads of Angel energies about so ask your Angels to help and show you what you need to know.

THREE THINGS TO DO NOW

  • Do your Full Moon ritual to ensure you manifest what you need and let go of what you don’t.
  • Pay attention to your dreams. Loads of Spirit activity and messages from the Universe right now. Write them down the moment you wake up and see how it relates to your situation.
  • Meditate! Create space and time. Leave pen and paper next to you. Listen to some calm music and just breathe. Focus on your 3rd eye and allow yourself to fall into a calm space. Write down whatever falls into your mind.

If you want a full in-depth  reading about your life then why not booking in a reading with me – book now.

Blessings,

Change or be changed

New Moon in Scorpio 

28 October, 03:38am

There is so much happening energy wise right now that is affecting us physically. The New Moon in Scorpio on Sunday, October 27th  gives us a blast of transformation mixed with uncertain changes that some of us are trying to grapple with.

The transformation is to help us make changes within our structure – relationship to health. As humans we strive for security in relationships which form the basis of our being. A family structure that needs to evolve may cause a lot of distress at the beginning mixed with an inner knowing that it has to happen. We will go back and forth with decisions around shaking things up.

The reason for this is that the last strong Full Moons since June has shifted our need to be happy and to explore ways to make change. The decision is based on “what feels right” and on you even if it will cause upset.

This can range from moving to changing career that will have a domino effect on those around you. Ultimately you know what feels right for you, so trust your intuition.

Health will become the focus from now till January where many will seek answers for those niggly pains and aches. If you don’t feel right then get it looked at before it gets bigger than it needs to be. Mental health – depression and grief are important conditions that can cause lasting patterns in our overall well-being and have a knock on effect on relationships and career. This is the time to take it seriously and practise self-care.

Scorpio’s energy bring a sense of vulnerability into our lives right now. You will be shown the dark corners of our minds that we choose to supress and ignore. For those who are in this space, you may have felt or been made to feel extra sensitive lately. Embrace it and work through it. Try to understand why and what are the triggers.

You are being woken up and forced to face some home truths right now. Don’t be scared. This is a chance to transform and make the important changes to get you “unstuck”

Transformation such as these help us heal old wounds and learn from the past to carve out a happier future.  It allows us to let go of what no longer serves our soul.

It is about what you NEED not WANT right now. Our soul knows what we need but our mind steers us into what it thinks we want.

Try to think of this time as de-cluttering the mind and making more space for good things in your life.  We need to stop and take stock of what is going on, make changes and then plan for the future. As humans we very rarely like to do that as we have so much fear and hate to face our own truths so the Universe has to do it for us.

The New Moon influences our sleep patterns greatly but this time our dreams will be extra real and many of us are waking up feeling like they experienced conversations and situations that seemed REAL! There is a huge amount of downloads from the Universe so please pay attention. Write them down! 

All Souls Day is on Nov 2nd so the veil between our two worlds will be thinner and your loved ones in Spirit will be able to visit, show signs and share memories.  Show them your love, light a candle or sit in silence asking them to come forward.

Another important aspect of Sunday, Oct 27th is the celebration of Diwali or Deepavali (South Indian) which is a festival of lights. This is a celebration good over evil. You can read an article I wrote about this a while back here

As I said the energy right now is shining light into the darkness that you wish to ignore. This has a positive result and will bring a sense of relief and enlightenment to you. During this process you may end up learning a bit more about yourself. For example if you have had anxiety about certain situations or people, there will be things popping in to force you to deal with it/them. You may well be surprised at the results and realise that you are no longer the same person you thought you were.

The Mercury Retrograde occurs on October 31st which typically means that travel and communications will be interrupted. This is a tricky time to purchase big electrical goods as there is always trouble – faulty items or disputes. I always find things break down around this time. It is annoying but sometimes items which were already old or faulty will somehow choose this time to cause trouble. So keep some money aside just in case for repairs. The Retrograde moves on after Nov 20th so try not to buy anything big until then. The Retrograde is also known to cause travel issues – cars breaking down, bad travel weather and even delays. Being prepared means you can plan ahead and be ready in case something happens.

The Retrograde tests our patience as communications can be rather awful. People will be sluggish and will take their time getting back to you. The other thing is that misunderstanding occur frequently as your intentions especially in writing could also be misinterpreted or you send something accidentally to the wrong person.

Computers and electrical gadgets are often an issue so make sure you back things up!

We have to be extra careful with our communications and beware of other people’s struggles as well.  Your priority may not be top of the list of someone else who may be swamped. We are being asked to be more understanding at this time.

Retrogrades means things may not be what it seem, it is subject to change and we must be prepared to compromise.

We are being asked to take stock of our lives and plan, because by the time Nov 20th comes along, things will move fast. So if you don’t have your ducks in a row by then, opportunities will be lost.

Here is my Moon Ritual for you to do on the 27th or 28th October:

  • Smudge the house with some sage or incense
  • Write down what you want to let go of 
  • Write down positively what you want to manifest
  • Go outside after dark and burn the “let go” list first, really feeling what you want to release. 
  • Wait until the paper turn to ash. 
  • Hold the “wish-list” in your hands and really feel the elements on your list. 
  • Burn it with a little sage if you have some.  
  • Say “I am grateful for all the good things that will come my way” 
  • Keep a note book and pen next to your bed to record down your dreams the next couple of days. See how it relates to your current situation.

Blessings,

Angela

“Feeling” June’s New Moon

New Moon in Gemini

June 3rd 2019, 10.01am
UTC ( 11.01am UK)

The new moon tomorrow is stirring up big emotions which may have seen many of us tearing up, feeling very upset, and may have led to some arguments.

You cannot keep sweeping things under the carpet – emotionally. The New Moon is helping you to release and let go of some of the negative energy that has been building up.
This will help put certain topics as a point of discussion to find solutions and a way forward. So hold space for yourself, acknowledge and understand your feelings. If it involves how you feel about someone close to you or issues that have been difficult to approach, then this is the right time to sit down and talk openly.

Don’t let your past dictate how you see your future. The very strong and steady message I am being asked to share is that we need to keep the faith. This is the time to work hard to put work into motion but we need to be patient to see the progress.

People will grate on us and it will seem like we are pushing against the grain. Be patient and be kind. They will be going through the same things you are.

The energy will be shifting as we have two big events this month – the Full Moon on the 17th and Summer Solstice on the 21st. The Full Moon will be in Sagittarius which is going to trigger some leap of faiths and activate the adventurer in you. The the introvert and those who are prone to anxiety will already be triggered at this New Moon as you are being prepared to be pushed out of your comfort zone. Meanwhile Neptune will be Retrograding on the 21st which is also the Summer Solstice. All I will say now is that you are being prepared for face the music. Time to dig deep and really hold on to what is important to you.

New Moon Ritual:

~ Smudge the house with sage or frankincense. Start at the front of the door and go around the house and back to the same place.

~ Put your crystals out in clean cooled boiled water. Make sure to avoid crystals that dissolve in water. Check this list.

~ Prepare two sheets of paper. One is to set your intention and the other is your “let go” list. Start with your Intentions List – write down what you want more of, in your life. You can be as general or as specific as you want. Make sure it is something achievable. I find lottery wins unrealistic, instead ask for “a gift of money” which opens up the energy for other people’s money to reach you.

~ Now prepare your “Let go” list. Think about what the emotions are telling you, issues that have been cropping up, problems that seem to around you and look at how you can change it – is it your reaction, angry, passiveness or perhaps being too nice? Do you need to change a habit or be proud of your abilities? What do you need to let go of in order to manifest your intentions list?

~ On the night before the New Moon or on the night, go outside and look at the sky. Doesn’t matter if the sky is cloudy, Mother Moon is there. Close your eyes and say this prayer “Mother Moon, energy from outside to within. Please help me to push against these emotions to see from inside to the outside” In a clean empty flower pot or pottery bowl, burn the “let go” list first and ask Mother Moon to release and heal. Once it has turned into ash, burn the Intentions list and hold positive thoughts – as in really feel the things you have asked for, happening.

Read my Moon Ritual if you would like a step by step guide on how to do your moon rituals.

This is a good time to get some Healing booked in to clear your energy and get some release from issues. Walks in nature and walking barefoot on grass will help centre and ground you. Meditation is also advisable.

Happy New Moon,

Angela
