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,

“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

Taurus New Moon Energy Guide

Taurus New Moon

22.45pm UTC

Did April trigger your inner self worth? Did you feel pushed into things you felt incapable of but then realised you were? The full moon on April 19th was all about finding solutions to existing problems through diplomacy and tolerance.

You would have felt very vulnerable and a little lost. Somehow in all that you were given opportunities to take that “leap of faith”.  Did you take it? Did you see it? Or did you dismiss it?

There was a joke/story about how a religious person caught in the middle of a storm. The neighbourhood was flooded and the water levels were rising. People encouraged him to leave but he said “God will save me”. This went on until the waters rose to the roof. He still refused help because he was sure God would save him. People offered to carry him, a boat was sent and eventually a helicopter. He refused everything and eventually drowned. When he was faced with God, he asked rather angrily, “why did you not come to save me? God looked at him, a little shocked and then said “but I did…I sent people to help you, a boat and even a helicopter but you refused it all”.

So we have to let go of the perfect intervention or help. Miracles happen in the way of synchronic events, an opportunity that makes your intuition spin or something that comes your way unexpectedly. Use your intellect to decide if this what you want and does it fit in with your needs. We often sit and wait for the right time for things from losing weight, to having a relationship to moving out of one. The New Moon will initiate a new thought process so be aware of what is happening around you.

Expect to be shown repetitive karmic patterns and I feel Twin Flames will be a theme to explore between May and July. Relationship will definitely be at the forefront. As I said you must filter out what doesn’t fit in with your narrative.

So we start a new lunar cycle with new ideas and seeds being planted in the mind for you to grow and develop. Refresh and transform with a flower bath or drink flower based teas.

This month’s New Moon will also activate a sense of frustration and the need for change. Embrace your emotions and try to understand the root of it. This will help bring in more clarity and empowerment.

Dreams will be extra vivid so write them down and try to decode the symbols and emotions. You may also want to note of any animals you see in dreams as spirit animals feel very strong right now.  Owls for example ask you to have more calm and silence especially if you have a busy mind or household. Finding time for yourself and to manage your stress. They are often associated with facing the shadows in your personality and be more aware of what you need to let go.

Five things to do this weekend:

  1. Write down what you want to manifest
  2. Put down on paper what you need to let go of
  3. Place your crystals in water outside to cleanse in the lunar energy
  4. Sage the house
  5. Meditate – this is a lovely chakra balancing meditation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7JS0O3pFS8&t=7s  just listen with closed eyes and relax.
