This year has seen a lot of people going back to the past to find answers and to readjust their path in order to re-imagine their future. In doing so, some have felt a overwhelming feeling of failure, unease and even dealt with their pride being hurt. The ego is bruised when we change our paths to something we truly believed in not working out. It is hard to accept, the mind taking charge and making realistic plans. Failure is felt when things don’t go to plan or once you have realised that like the man who tried to get water out of the well, that it was going to take a lot more work as the pail had holes in it. Hot, and sweaty with sore arms, he slogged away to fill the jugs of the cool, clean well water. The pail with the hole was reducing the amount of water per draw. He could either keep doing what he was doing with little result or get a new pail or find something else to use. Alternatively, he could find another water source. These are choices not failures. You can overcome a situation using your internal wisdom and not allow emotions to cloud your judgement. In the same way, some of us are dealing with “letting go” of the security of what you are doing, of the feeling of failure, of change or the fear of something new.
Our physical body signs can be very revealing. These last week along with the very atmospheric skies over the UK shadows our inner struggles. The darkness within mirrors our experiences outside. People have been in touch this week saying they have been feeling very defeated, angry at times, procrastinating, depressed, fuzzy head and another even said some said they felt wobbly. Imagine there is a tug of war happening inside your body. How would it feel? One end pulling on the robe and the other holding on to the rope for dear life. Obviously there would be tension, agony and the sheer will power of both sides to hold on to the rope wouldn’t you? Your body is merely reacting to what is going on in your mind and spiritual layer.
We are being asked to take a step back from our situation and to review it with clear eyes and less attachment. The more you do this, the easier it will become. If we view it as “failure” then it attracts other mental negativity that only leads to a darker place mentally. We become too emotional and our actions will be driven from the wrong place. Using logic and a practical approach allows us to see things for what they are and making the adjustments to rectify the situation.
Energetically, this is happening for a big reason as this entire week, has been about “Good” vs “Evil”. Today ends the victory of good and Hindus around the world will celebrate Diwali which is the festival of lights. According to Hindu mythology, a super powerful demon called Narakasura who unleashed unimaginable pain and suffering to the world, was killed by Goddess Kali. who is a powerful, albeit scarier avatar of the Gods merged together. She is the warrior Goddess who was created to go to war, to save the world, to bring salvation to mankind. This is why her image often depicts her holding the bloody head of Narakasura. Simply put, the demon had declared to all the male Gods who tried to fight him and failed, that “No man can kill me”. He was arrogant enough to dismiss feminine power and therefore was defeated by Kali who incorporated both male and female energies. Hindus fast and pray for light into their lives, deal with the darkness within before today, when the dawn breaks to bring positivity and success. The Goddess of success and luck, Lakshmi is celebrated on the last few days to pray for happiness, fortune and success in all aspects of their lives.
In some ways, festival of lights is the war of inner darkness, to ward off bad luck and and dedicating time and space to positive thinking. This translate to our modern times as using knowledge and intuition to overcome our own darkness. When there is darkness there is light. So when there is doubt, trust your intuition and don’t be afraid to step into the bright light where there is clarity.
The New Moon which arrives tomorrow (October 19) offers us a new cycle of “letting go” and transformation which will be felt strongly by the Full Moon which falls on November 4th. You can help the universe by writing down your situation or what is holding you back on a piece of paper and go outside tomorrow evening to burn the paper. Hold the thought in your mind that you want to let go and welcome help from the universe. The veils between our two worlds are thinning so there is no doubt that our Spirit people, Angels and the universal force will be there to lend us a hand. Keep your thoughts positive, believe there is good change happening and everything will work out for the best. Be open to the fact that it may not be exactly how you want it, as the more we relinquish control, then the easier it is for the powers that may be, to deliver.
So why is this happening and why now? There is a bigger picture for us to open our awareness to. There is a next level of consciousness and experience but we cannot get there if we are holding on to fear and same old believes. The world is changing and there is a huge shift of thinking coming our way. We have often questioned how human evolution was going to take place, are we going to turn into zebras or three eyed aliens? What next after the ape? Well according to my awareness, the evolution will come in changes to mindset, to the way we think and feel. New thought processes and being able to accept the inevitable such as the possibility of Spirit being in the same space as us will be more accepted and mainstream.
So it starts with us now. Being able to shift our consciousness will be important. We are being shaken to the core to make ourselves a lot more flexible and accepting for what is around the corner. There are exciting times ahead for all of us and there is a universal feeling of “something big” is about to happen.
It is also a good time to make space for yourself and meditate. I love this very uplifting and super powerful mantra which is mantra of mantras. The music and the singers voice is so calming and gentle which really changes the energy around me when I listen to the music. You can click to listen to it here. I am actually listening to it as I write this guidance.
With that I wish you all a lovely Diwali and may the light be always in your life.
Lots of love and blessings,
Tomorrow’s Full Moon falls on a number “7” day which has a high spiritual vibrancy. These is one of those stand alone number days aligned with the lunar calendar which can be interesting energy wise. What will be compelling is the need to break free from the norm and to be more “individual” in your approach. A word of warning through, as this could lead to fractious relationships and situations.
Plan and do your leg work before acting as there is a tendency to be reckless at times when these sort of days appear in our lives. Nothing to worry about, just double check everything and think things through before acting.
The Full Moon falls on 5.10.2017 which if we added the numbers up, 5+1+0+2+0+1+7= 16, totals to the number 7. Seven brings solid foundations, spiritual pursuits and a hunger to learn more about your personal direction and universal energy. Most of us will find that we want to “shine” and be heard not just seen. This is the time to step out of the shadows and be true to yourself.
The lunar energy of 2017 has so far been pushing and prodding us to get to this point where we can let go of fear and to stop being comfortable in the shadow aspect of our personality. The time has come, with the help of the universe, Spirit and the powers that may be to step forward and be counted.
*If you have been feeling a little spaced out or like you are about to get a cold but never does happen, then listen up. This means that you may have a number of things on your mind, and struggling to focus on one productive thought or project which could push you forward. Decision making is not your strongest point and you are likely to be led rather to lead. Tomorrow’s energy will nudge you out of your comfort zone and force you to make a decision. So take charge, put everything on paper and go through the list and let your intuition guide you.
*The other physical symptom some of us have been experiencing and which is rather common during the lunar cycle is headaches. Our natural instinct, consciously or unconsciously in the face of change, is to resist. The lunar energy will be draining as it will be using up energy from within our physical body. This reduces our water content and causes us to be dehydrated, which we know leads to headaches and imbalance. It is always a good idea to increase our intake of filtered warm or room temperature water close to the New or Full moon. Lunar cycles enhance our ability to detox and rid ourselves of limiting believes and the shadow, which inevitably will cause our body to detox as well. Water will accelerate the process and flush everything out. The more spiritual rationale for headaches close to a lunar cycle is resistance and mental conflict. It is likely that you are over thinking something and putting a considerable amount of stress on yourself for no reason other than to want “perfection”. You are likely someone who feels they “have to” rather than “want to” therefore piling on the stress to be everything to everyone. The more you left go of this need to be perfect, the headaches will ease this week and you will find clarity and determination.
Over arching Spiritual Message for Oct 5th Full Moon
The message for this full moon cuts deep into our core, the essence of who we are and where we want to go. If you act on your feelings, learn from it and use this guide then transformation is possible. There is a call now to stand up in your own two feet, to be an individual rather than to hide behind others. The time is ripe for you to take charge of your life and your career. You CAN do it on your own.
The energy is particularly powerful and can, often be life changing if tapped into properly. Stop hesitating and use your practical and sensible self to clearly etch out a plan. Big yourself up at work and stand out!
This is also the time to put yourself FIRST. Bump yourself up on the list of priorities and make yourself the VIP of your own life. Stop running around for others. Look after yourself, be kind to yourself and be there for YOU. So go book a spa day, treat yourself to a nice lunch, create space in the house for your hobby, spend some time on your own, go out and have fun or even just get your hair done! Do all the things you have put off because you don’t have time, money or that others need it more.
The Hunter’s Moon appears on our skies earlier than regular full moons which means the dusky sky is illuminated brilliantly by the full moon (weather permitting!) which gave the Native Americans in ancient times, more time to hunt. This is the signal for the winter preparation. This means in our modern times, that we are given a unique opportunity to take a leap of faith and to be true to ourselves. The bright light of the moon will illuminate our shadow self to transform and learn. Tomorrow’s moon will give you the strength and conviction to step up and let the light shine on you for once.
Take advantage of this gift from the universe and do the full moon ritual to accelerate the energy right now. Follow the steps on the guide here or if you want an in depth explanation on how to cleanse your crystals, smudge the house and to write your wishlist then read my complete moon ritual guide here.
Please feel free to share this guidance with family and friends. I love hearing from you so please do leave a comment if this resonates with you.
Happy full Moon
* Obviously with any symptom, you must first ensure that there is no underlying medical reason. This is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
New moons are often spark the beginning of the “letting go” process which culminates during the month’s full moon. Often those pesky things you keep hiding behind your defence shield start rising to the surface whether you like it or not. Sometimes the very emotion or action you keep nicely packaged in the back of your mind falls into the hands of another and you have absolutely no choice but to deal with it. We forget as humans that our experiences often shape the person we are today. It can be from anger issues to being too passive. it could also help you be a happy person who picks yourself up when faced challenges. Every single day creates another page in the chapter of our book. We sometimes have to flip back to the first few chapters to see why we act or react in a certain way in order to change the story further down the book. The new moon falls on the Cancer sign which is a nurturing sign which is very much about the “heart chakra”. So you will be dealing with matters of the heart as well as self worth and self worth issues until the full moon. Combine this now with the “super” aspect of this new moon, which amplifies the “letting go” process, you get a lovely harmonious and loving energy that will help you achieve your heart’s desire.
So if you have been feeling or even asking yourself, “what is missing in my life” then this is the time to really ask the universe for help. You are being guided to search for the meaning and go on a personal journey of discovery. Have you been feeling there is more to life than this? What is my passion? If you know there is something you need to be doing or pushing for then, listen up!
This is an opportunity for positive transformation even if it will feel a little transitional at the moment. Some of us feel we have changed inside, like there is a new sense of clarity that is encouraging us to take a step back from our current situation to review our choices now. There is a new door opening for us, a chance to transform and grab life by the balls as they say! The question you need to ask yourself, is are you ready to take the leap?
These last couple of months have seen huge shifts in our thinking and shaking off belief systems that have been ingrained in us. The seeds have already been planted as far back as November or January and reach a crescendo this coming week. Every little thought or step you have taken since then has brought you here.
Things will be clearer in your mind and you will feel the shift. Try to be calm and think clearly. Don’t let your emotions or past track record stop you from taking action. This is a good time to seek healing and meditate as it will help you think better and release old patterns.
This New Moon is about your heart’s desire and life purpose. If you can’t make my special New “Super” Moon Fire and Ritual Meditation Evening on Saturday then please do follow my Moon Ritual
The Full Moon in Sagittarius gives us emotional clarity that comes from deep within our hearts. Try as you may to hide what you really feel about people, your life or even areas in the your life, the truth will resurface. This is the time to trust the universe and let her guide you to a more full filling life. This is because we have been cluttering our spiritual layer with “dirt”, the by product of not facing our truth. Like a rubbish bin that is full, there will come a time when you have to deal with it. Empty the bin so you have space for more.
Take a few moments the next few days to reflect on what you are not facing and what you need to release from you life to be able to more on. What is holding you back and what are you unconsciously holding on to? Do you have a dream that you have tucked away and refuse to accept is part of your destiny? Are you refusing to sign a document that will release you into a new adventure because you are scared?
Full Moon in Sagittarius brings you FREEDOM from Within. Unleash those dreams and let go of things that no longer serve you.
Use the Full Moon energy to discover your inner desires, explore your feelings and find ways to express yourself. Some of us will find that we will be focusing on passion and having fun this coming week. Sagittarius energy is playful and energetic so expect the unexpected in your social life.
Caution comes in the form of spending money. Unless its absolutely necessary, try not to spend money these next two weeks. Keep a hold o your money and stay clear of unnecessary purchases. The energy will lead you astray so better to be safe than sorry!
