Release the Ego to see/feel better. The Ego Trap is when we only want to see what we want to see. We only want to hear what we want to hear. Freedom to see the whole picture is what pushed us forward not back. We don’t need anyone to tell us what are faults or limitations are but the ego trips us up in a state of denial or worse, the “I know better” . Facing our dark side is not failure or admitting weakness. In fact people respect people who can acknowledge that they in fact don’t know something but willing to learn more about it. I see a lot of things in spiritual world. Some will never want to admit they aren’t familiar with a particular aspect of spiritual work in fear that clients or followers won’t see them as a subject matter expert. The ego will push people to attempt to “know” something they don’t and often it shows though the assertive language and vague messaging. It is better to let go of the need to a human Google and show a touch of vulnerability because we are only human and can’t “know” everything. I know because I tried to when I first started off and now I am happy to admit I don’t know things! Don’t mean I am not a good medium if I don’t know about Fairy energy for example!
This is important because the less Ego comes into play, the more we grow and transform. If we don’t release then we have no space for anything else. Therefore everything remains the same. How can change occur if there is no space for transformation? Yet many of us will complain that nothing is changing. It can only change if we shift our perspective and energy.
Some people, often the ones most affected by the Full moon energy would have experienced digestive problems these last two weeks. This suggests inner turmoil and a build up of resentment. The body protests against the mind. Toxins have two layers – the physical and the spiritual layer. The toxins in our physical layer remains in the blood stream and organs. The other clogs up our spiritual layer which can then form patterns or cycles of self sabotage and blocks in our ability to manifest and live our lives. Both need to be released and rejuvenated. When you consciously release your old limiting believes and inner darkness, then the body relaxes and detoxifies naturally. If you have had issues with diarrhoea these last two weeks then your body is already starting the “let go” process so now the mind needs to follow suit.
The more you hold in the bad stuff then the hard it gets for the good stuff to get to you. So if you have had constipation the last two weeks then your spiritual layer has been struggling and clogged. Your body is showing you how it feels and wants a deep release (no puns intended!).
Finding the light in the darkness helps us stay positive and bring in good things. If you refuse to find the light they you will stay in the darkness. This Full Moon is all about choices – stay in the dark or find the light.
Release stubbornness, the need to be “right” and find the happiness from within. With a strong Pisces hold on Virgo, the Full Moon asks you to release your fear of change and to embrace freedom and to be more flexible.
The New Moon and Solar Eclipse on February 15, 2018 fall the day after St Valentine’s Day, a universal celebration of love and relationships. As it falls on the Aquarius sign, which has a strong accent on relationships, intellect and sense of community, we are being asked to view our emotions and how people influence us. Some of us shy away from being “involved” and like to stand by the sidelines, hoping someone else will take charge and not be noticed. You may this may start to change as there will be a need to come out from the shadows and seek companionship by active participation. So is there a cause or an interest that you have been wanting to be a part of but have been scared? This is the perfect opportunity to put yourself forward because you stand to gain so much by doing so.
The Solar Eclipse asks us to look into our “darkness” to acknowledge the things we keep burying inside of us. They influence us in so many ways that we subconsciously know but refuse to acknowledge. Be true to yourself and face the darkness within to shine the light from within.
A Solar Eclipse is powerful because the Moon eclipses the Sun but this month it will be a partial eclipse. As it falls on the New Moon which is the beginning of a new cycle, so this will bring about deep discussions about relationships for those who are in partnerships. For those who are single, this will be a time where you will start thinking about manifesting your soul mate and release any set ideas about marriage and children. There is rising female energy associated with this new cycle and it feels very empowering and life changing. Use this time to make space for your loved ones, have open honest discussions to move forward and practise rituals to honour your own spirit.
Physical Symptoms : fatigue, vivid dreams, headaches, stomach issues and some may feel excessive thirst. Drink some flower base tea and ginger seeped in hot water.
New Moon Ritual
- Do your Moon Ritual between tonight and Friday night. Here are instructions on how to sage, write your wishlist and cleanse your crystals.
- Meditate – You need 5 mins, a comfy chair or space, light some nice incense and ear phones. Leave a note book and pen next to you. Put this beautiful meditation music on your phone/ipad. Breathe in and out slowly. Let your thoughts drift away and just relax into the music. You can put the video on loop so you can listen to it longer than 5mins. Incredibly relaxing and calming. Write down anything that pops into your mind and see how it relates to your life.
- Pay attention to your dreams as this is the only time our minds are not in control. Write down your dreams in a dream book with date and time of waking. Track the coincidences and messages in your day and compare it to your dreams. You may find that there will be a message or symbol that relates to what is happening around you. Often emotions are also expressed in dreams. For example if you are trying to suppress your emotion or anxiety in your day then your dream may give you a clue as to how you are really feeling.
We start the New Year with a brand new Full Moon, in fact it will be the first of two Full Moons this month, the first being on Jan 2nd and the other on Jan 31st. In between this, we will have the New Moon on Jan 17 where everything gets reset. These are Super moons and include a lunar eclipse.
The combination of all this major planetary activity will bring some very strong energy which will be like a tsunami, unblocking major deals, negotiations and movement in decisions.
We will find some important announcement to do with Europe and Asia in and around February to March time. In fact I feel one of this will be a deal breaker of sorts. It will be interesting to see how it will affect world politics in general and how the community will react.
The Wolf Moon in Cancer, which will appear in the UK at 2.14am (GMT/BST) on January 2nd brings us closer to our community. Just like the wolves, we have to work in a pack, communicate and understand our purpose. So do not feel like you have to isolate yourself to be able to succeed. In fact this is the time to share, explore and network. January is the time to set realistic goals but rather than aim for the ones that are physical or play on our bad habits or make us feel bad, put together ideas that can help you achieve.
For example, looking at your business, identify the areas that need improvement and say that you struggle with keeping your accounts. Perhaps your goal for the year is to do your own accounts and you can achieve this through a course or a workshop. This goal is empowering and even if you don’t manage to grasp it well enough to do your own accounts, you would have learned something along the way.
It is important to note that by March, we will all be wondering where the time has gone, as things are moving fast. If you have been distressed by how things are moving, people holding contracts or decisions back, then stop fretting and be prepared as the wheels are already in motion.
You will need your “tribe” around you so join up with any interest groups, likeminded people or networking sites as the more you interact as we will need to be part of something to get a few things off the ground. For many of us struggling emotionally or wanting to develop spiritually, learning to speak our truth will be important. If you constantly feel choked up or unable to voice out what you really feel, with throat clearing and issues around that area that is not medically related, this is a sign that your throat chakra is struggling to cope.
January’s full moons want you to “listen” before you act. If you are called on by a friend who is in need, just be there for them and listen. Don’t judge or try to fix things, just lend them your ear. You will avoid conflict and misunderstandings this way. Some of us may be holding on to intense energy so your words may be misconstrued as being judgemental or overbearing. Nothing to worry about, just take a step back and be a friend.
Going back to Jan 1st, this is an important day for many reasons. However please take note that 2018 is a master number year as it totals up to “11” so Jan 1st literally 1.1.11 which is a super master number. I know many of us will be waking up with a huge hangover or just plain tired from staying up late and dealing with the dishes and kids, however it is important to start the year on the right foot.
A master number day is a powerful day as it a super manifesting day. Keep your thoughts positive and focus on the things that you want to manifest. Be realistic about what you want too. Asking the universe to deliver 10million is a big ask as it may not be in your soul’s blueprint and they also can foresee the difficulties you may encounter with such a big fortune all at once. How many lottery winners have we seen happy? Many of those who win do seem to have fractured lives, get taken advantage of, fall out with each other or lose everything eventually. Some people are meant to have that much and know how to deal with it and others who think money is the answer to everything, will soon find out that it isn’t.
The trick to manifesting is to put down things that can definitely improve your life, things that you can achieve, and don’t forget feelings/emotions. For example “I want to feel happy about my job”. How this will manifest will be different for each individual. For one, it is the line manager who is causing unhappiness and perhaps he or she will be forced to leave or gets promoted and a kinder more “people person” takes over. This change of guards will allow for a happier and cohesive department. Or you may see a fantastic role and go for it, leading you to a great team and work life balance.
I feel that many of you will feel the “reset” button that the new moon will bring on the 17th of January. By this time you will have seen a few things fall into place but also recognise some of the emotional baggage you have been carrying around, and willing to finally let go. This is important as the more you let go, the better it will be to accelerate your soul’s purpose come Jan 31st when the Blue Moon comes along to sweep everything forward.
Keep an eye on who comes into your lives between January and end of February. New people, old friends or even relatives. Ask yourself the reasons why they appearing in your life now, what are their motives, how can they help you now and what you can learn from them. If it is someone from the past who you had an issue with or vice versa, is forgiveness or clearing the communication lines, the lesson?
January’s Full Moons are about love, manifesting but also the healer of old wounds. So be open to forgive and patch things up with people. The more you let it fester, the harder it will get for you to let go of the pain. Don’t let your ego and pride hold you back.
Hopefully the skies will be clear as the first full moon of 2018 is expected to be the biggest and most vibrant. This will spark off healing, transformation and show you where you need “growth” in your life.
As far as the rest of the year goes, I do feel that the royal wedding in the UK will bring some positive energy to break up the dark clouds of Brexit. I sense Diana’s influence at play as although she loved her boys equally, she always had a soft spot for Harry. She somehow knew even at the early days, that he was a lot more impulsive, emotional and nonconventional than his brother. She also knew that he hurt easily. I sensed her presence around Harry and Megan during the engagement announcement in the gardens. She feels that Megan will go where she tried to, in a calmer and less emotional manner. In saying this I do feel a touch of sadness to their day or the days after. I feel there will be some sort of an event which will take place to overshadow their day.
Now I also feel that the world leaders have to pay attention to ISIS and their agenda. What do they want really? What are their demands? I feel this needs to be]]]]]]]changing sharply and they will achieve the funding they require from a super power.
There will be a major earthquake that will be on the plates along some American states but also affect those along the same lines. I feels like the time when the season changes either winter to spring or summer to autumn.
Although we will be reacting to this negatively as this is the trend of the world now, until the next shift happens, we as people will be more resilient and be able to pick ourselves up and go on.
The lyrics of this song popped into my head as I wrote the words above: https://genius.com/Samuel-follow-me-lyrics
In summary the theme for 2018 is transformation, manifesting and finding your tribe. This is a year to come together as people and as a community. Keep your thoughts positive, Law of Attraction techniques will serve you well.
These last few weeks since the Beaver Moon on Nov 5th has been challenging for most. In my free guidance earlier this month, I spoke about Force Majeure which is about superior force or something out of our control. How many us faced situations not unlike a tornado with spiralled out of our control? I know I had one where I felt I was caught in the middle of the eye. I was put under considerable stress and prodded to breaking point. Luckily self control and diplomacy helped but my goodness, it was intense. One of the main themes of the last full moon was “water” and this lead to very disruptive emotional state of mind and communication problems.
Emotions were definitely running wild, within our minds as well with our relationship with others. Bear in mind that this year is all about transformation and change. This means that the change is triggered IN us so there is a domino effect in terms of how you get along with people, feel about them and even treat them. The change within will determine the rest. So yes, the next couple of months till February will be emotional and communication can break down if were are not careful.
The New Moon in Scorpio brings some stubbornness and determination. Don’t try to cut off your nose to spite the face in trying to “stand your ground”. Consider your options and listen to what people are saying before you react. There may be some truth in it or learning lessons so don’t dismiss everything as a negative.
Scorpios are generally very passionate, focused and want to know more. New Moons are the start of a new cycle and a fresh start to old problems. So think of what you are passionate about and how you can change your focus, to make it work for you. A change in perspective brings new solutions that were otherwise hidden by our one dimensional outlook.
This New Moon encourages us to “declutter” in more ways than one. How many of you have been feeling like you need to downsize or declutter the home? You may be looking at reviewing your friends list to see who has been “naughty or nice”.
Imagine you want to climb Mt Everest but have a big trolley bag with you instead of a bagpack. You have the wrong luggage and too much of the wrong things with you, weighting and slowing you down. The moment you stop being stubborn and throw out the stuff you don’t need and only take with you in a smaller bag, what will be useful, will you succeed in your journey. As difficult it was to let go and get rid of the “stuff”, which are familiar and what you thought you needed, it felt good to have less.
Now imagine that the stuff you threw away were negative emotions such as procrastination, self sabotage, anger, addiction to food or substance or even people, stubbornness, laziness, passiveness or even defeatist attitude, or people – those who bring you down, encourage you to stay in your comfortzone, those who push your buttons, those who tell you what you “want” to hear, then your load will be much lighter. The universe can’t help you manifest the life or the things you want if nothing changes in how you live your life. It can push you into the right direction but you need to be in the right mind set to see the opportunity and to accept it. Nothing will change until we get rid of the “junk” in our lives, freeing up space for new ideas, people and emotions.
How to help the Universe help you?
- Write your intentions list – put down all the things you want to let go off. Be realistic and don’t try to hide from yourself. Put down exactly what frustrates you about you. Why do you think some of the situations occurred in your life? Be honest and stop blaming others. Put it down on paper and let yourself free. Take it out on Saturday evening and face the night sky and feel the energy of Mother Moon. Speak to her in your mind and go through some of the negative situations caused by your own limitations. Tell her that you are ready to let go. Say this three times – “I let go, I let go, I am ready to let go” Burn the list in a safe place and ensure the flames are out before you enter the house.
- Smudge the house using Frankincense or White Californian sage. For detailed instructions read my free guidance.
- Cleanse your crystals – You can either drop your crystals in a bowl of filtered/cooled boiled water with some selenite to self cleanse or leave it outside to be fully energised and cleansed by moon energy. Use the water the next day to water your plants.
- Declutter – the house. Get rid of things you really don’t need. Create space for yourself in the house. Giving things away can be therapeutic. Put pen to paper to see who has been creating most of the drama in your life recently and ask yourself if you need to step away from them for a while?
Happy New Moon and New Beginnings to you all!
