Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

The July New Moon and Solar eclipse falls in Cancer’s influence which means most of us are going to be pushed into making the core of what makes us feel secure – home, relationship, or money.  The root chakra, the essence of being and our core will be in focus. Matters dealing with pregnancy and the reproductive system will be amplified. These are not necessarily bad, in fact it will be positive outcomes or news. However if you have been sweeping things under the carpet health wise then this is the time to take action. 

While the New Moon likes us to face facts and start the shedding process, to prepare us for the Full Moon where we can “let go”, the eclipses’ role is more of one of motivation. It helps us move forward and accelerate the areas of our lives that we try to control or hide from, thinking it will go away. Just think of eclipses as you bootcamp leader – the muscled, super fit and no-nonsense guy who will push you out of your comfort-zone to achieve your goals. They come into our lives to shake things up a little because we often need the extra help!

Emotional issues will come into play so don’t be too surprised if you feel a little teary. Letting go and facing the truth of the matter is never easy. Embrace the tears and let go. It is okay to cry, it is very healing and can bring clarity to situations. I always find that when things are hard and I feel like crying, I always feel better and think better too!

This week will make you think about home – domestic stuff, your home and all the things that make you rooted, makes you feel safe and secure will be under scrutiny. So ask yourself what makes you feel secure and what is important? Is it food support, your past, how people perceive you or your heritage? How will you react if any of the above is threatened? 

I feel the eclipses combined with the new moon is here to make us reflect on what the deeper meaning of your life, what makes you feel secure and how much in power are you over your own life.

As I said, many of us sweep things under the carpet and hope for the best, from past hurts, failures, relationship with our family and even our own flaws BUT they do come back at this like these because they need to be HEALED and LET GO. Unconsciously you are still processing, holding on and being influenced by these patterns which the Universe wants to help us heal in order to move forward.

What we have to realise is that they will keep coming back in a cycle, month after month, year after year until its been acknowledged and released. So if you start thinking about the path – an ex, parents, a moment in time, failures or lost loves, sit and reflect on this and try to see the truth in the matter. 

The Solar Eclipse is your energy boost, the one which will push us out to change things. They push us forward and help us achieve more especially for those who have been stuck in a rut where work is concerned. Some of you may already have seen this happen the last few days and wondering how and why your luck has changed.

For women the theme will be about your reproductive area, mainly because the root chakra has been activated so discussions about your own fertility, motherhood or not wanting to be a mother will be a theme playing on your mind. This also means issues with menopause and periods could come up.

We are being given an energy update so shift has to happen. Change is here, embrace it and let it help you break the patterns that hold you back.

Here is my free moon ritual for you to do today – Moon Rituals

June’s New Moon in Gemini – Digging up Core Emotions

*** June New Moon ***
New Moon in Gemini
19:43 UTC

The physical symptoms many of us are experiencing right now is a very “heady” sensation, like the head is in the clouds or a head flu sensation. This is a passing feeling and all will be well by the weekend.

There is a valid reason for this as Gemini brings us to our logical mind, brimming with ideas and encourages action.

We have all the missing pieces to the puzzle but are yet to see the full picture therefore struggling to put down our next piece. The mind is overactive trying to solve a situation or problem right now which is why we have this funny feeling.

It is a confusing time as well for many. You may have gained momentum in one area of your life and realised you have neglected another. So you are likely playing catch up right now. Others will feel they have taken five steps ahead and pushed back by three steps.

Breathe…..breathe….. and take a step back. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed or lose your confidence. Keep breathing and stay in a positive space as things WILL get better in one way or the other. Until then you will feel emotional. a little angry, teary and even wanting to keep to yourself.

Mars is also on Retrograde until June 26th, two days before the Strawberry Full Moon. This new moon is really digging into our core emotions and helping us shift energetically.  The throat chakra has also been vibrating. It’s almost as if the weather in the UK is reflecting our emotions today. Cry, be a hermit or meditate. Do what you need to do to ride this. Until then you will be dealing with the past – experiences, people, learning lessons and so on.

The challenge during heavy energy periods is keeping the faith. It is very easy to feel challenged and then give up. Our biggest achievement is being able to see new ideas and solutions in the dark.

Sometimes we have to be pushed into the darkness to find the light. Change your perspective and change your life.

Tonight is the perfect night to do your Moon Ritual, put out your crystals and manifest your hearts desire.

Exercise:

Find some time for yourself and a quiet corner. Sit comfortably in a chair, bed or on the floor. Burn some incense if you want or even a scented candle. Listen to mantra and breath deeply and then exhale as they say “HAM” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX5BXuGEXIE The “Ham” mantra is the sound of the Vishuddha chakra. It is capable of transforming and activating the chakra and is a Sanskrit word. Just lose yourself for a moment listening to the chants and the music and relax.

November’s New Moon – New Beginnings minus the “junk”

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?

  1. 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.
  2. Smudge the house using Frankincense or White Californian sage. For detailed instructions read my free guidance
  3. 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. 
  4. 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! 

The New Moon & Navatri – Facing our Inner Darkness to see the Light

The New Moon & Navatri – Facing our Inner Darkness to see the Light

The New Moon is often over looked when one talks about Moon energy. The Full Moon is well known and pushed forward as the time to release and let go. Moon energy, is a cycle in every way possible and needs to be slowly introduced into our auras as it triggers growth and change. If you do it all at once then humanity will be overwhelmed and sanity will be questioned. Everything that falls into our space has to be done in stages and gently. Even with that amount of care, some of us can be so desensitised that we rarely understand the subtle signs until we are faced with it.

The emotions activated the week before and a few days after the New Moon are usually raw, and very much in line with our soul’s mission. Every one of us are “spirits” having a human experience, with a purpose. Unfortunately as more experience we clock up, we also tend to be conditioned to stray away from our original goals. We may have been told that were are “not good enough” to be something or someone. So we stop ourselves from even trying a skill or love. This creates an inner resistance because although your mind tells you what is NOT possible, your soul is determined to lead you to what IS possible. So until you face up to these clutter within, we will be going around in circles and living the same story, again and again.

So here is where the New Moon saunters in each month, stirring up old stories, clutter and dark matter that we try to suppress. Things will crop up, people will crash into your lives, events will occur out of your control – all forcing you to run around like a headless chicken. You will then see changes, action and solutions by the time the Full Moon comes in. 

The New Moon is like the bad cop and the Full Moon is the good cop! There are events astronomically as well as spiritually that align closely to either moon phases that accelerate and amplify the effects. 

This month’s new moon falls on Navratri which is the Hindu nine night festival that ends with the “the victory of good over evil” which then culminates with the festival of light – Diwali.

The Goddess Durga, is worshipped through offerings, dance and religious events during this festival. Each area in India and their respective communities have a different way of celebrating from different deities celebrated on each day, to types of prayers, music or dance to traditions. You can read more here.

There are some huge injustices happening within our societies and indeed, the world right now. From human to natural forces, it doesn’t feel fair and suffering seems endless. It feels like everything has to fall apart, be completely broken in order for it to be rebuild and made complete. The guides tell me that there is a huge secret to be revealed or dislodged (perhaps something from underwater?)  and there is going to be big shift in world politics very soon. The strong will be weak and the weak will be strong.

New Moon & Navratri Significance 

Most of us fear the unknown. We also fear ourselves. Imagine standing in a room full of mirrors. Your image plastered all over, looking back at you with no where to run or hide. How many of us can say they would be 100% comfortable in that room? Not many I suspect. Shining the Image result for navratrilight within to see clearly, the things we have spend a lifetime trying to hide and hide from, can be a very emotional and upsetting. I know so many people who want a reading but are too scared because of what will come out. It is because they are terrified of the things they don’t want to face. When the light is shined on us, we have to take it warts and all. 

It is also believed that Goddess Durga was created by Lord Vishnu as a warrior goddess to protect the good people against the demon, Mahishasur. She is the combination of all the Gods energies and their power. The demon had declared that “no man” could ever kill him, which is why a female deity was created. Durga is the protector of the good, the women and children. She is justice and infinite. She is the light in the dark.  Durga is a Sanskrit word which literally translates into the one who eliminates sufferings. She is usually depicted with eight or 18 arms holding an object or tool in each hand, indicating that she is fully equipped and ready for battle.  Durga symbolises freedom from fear, justice, winning the battle, being alert and ready for anything. Durga Amma is worshipped for help with fertility issues, strength, endurance and positive outcomes. 

What to look for this week:

  1. Emotional – how are you feeling? Write down how you are feeling and then dig deeper – ask yourself why is this coming up now. What is bringing this up.  Are there changes to your mood? Being irritable and angry. Is there something within that you are not facing but driving you to react badly to situations? Stop and consider because when you react straight away then you have no chance of correcting yourself especially when it concerns other people. Tears will also be significant for some people as when you have been in a state of mind or situation for so long, it inevitably becomes your “comfort zone”. Make a conscious decision to “let go” and you will see everything soften and shape up nicely for October’s Full Moon.
  2. Physical Symptoms – as the shedding process get underway this week, our chakras will be activated and problem areas will be highlighted. For example if your throat chakra may cause you to clear your throat more often this week, and symptoms such as coughing and congestion in the throat encourage you to speak up, communicate your truth and not to feel suppressed.  If your stomach keeps churning this week (and not because of an existing medical issue) then you are being encouraged to let go of “confidence issues”. As the chakras work extra time this week, you will find yourself feeling very overheated and thirsty. Please drink lots of filtered water or lemon water. 
  3. Dreams – most of us have vivid dreams but don’t always pay attention to them. This week you will find yourself going through massive journeys during dream time. Watch out for the moment before you wake up because the messages and clues from your soul will be likely to be given right before you wake up. Pay attention to any lingering words, images or scenes you may be seeing or hearing in your mind the moment you start to wake up and just about to let go of sleep. For example I had a roller coaster of a lucid dream and the last thing I remember was drinking from an artisan bottled drink. It was one of those fancy combination homemade drinks like rhubarb and poached pears or something like that. The more I was waking up, the label started to look fuzzy but one word – “turmeric” got brighter and brighter on the label. I knew it was relevant as my grandmother was a healer and medicine woman. She used turmeric for everything and it was her way of telling me to consume some to help me with a health condition.
  4. What is happening around you – there will be lots happening. From people pushing your buttons to events completely out of your control. There are two reasons for this, one will test certain aspects of what you need to let go and the other is to push you out of your comfort zone. You will face these tests to either show you how far you have come, for example your reaction to someone may have changed compared to three months ago. The other will be to make you understand why you need to let go of a particular emotion or reaction. A situation will arise and you will regret how you behaved which will trigger the release. The moment you realise what it is you need to let go off, then the process will kick off within you. To let go, to change to evolve – we must WANT it. 

 Do these three things this week to help the universe help you:

  1. Mirror Work Meditation –  Take a moment anytime this week to do this powerful exercise. Find a comfortable and quiet place in the house where you won’t be disturbed. Have a notepad and pen next to you on the floor. Place a tabletop/vanity mirror on a table infront of you. Make sure you can see your full face in it. Listen to this beautiful music on your earphone Image result for looking into a mirror(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkM-FjfN6Mc&t=2367s) as you are likely to get the full force of the vibrations that way. Take a few deep breaths with your eyes closed. Let the palms of your hands rest on your knee, facing up. Feel the sound waves go through your body from your root chakra to the top of your head and back down. Slowly open your eyes and look at yourself in the mirror. Look at the image in front of you. Don’t judge your flaws or imperfections, just look deep into the eyes, take in everything. Just be and look at yourself while you keep listening to the music. Let your body guide you. If you feel like you need to close your eyes, do it. Don’t analyse or try to control this moment with yourself. Write down anything that pops into your head. You can do this for 10mins or 30 mins or an hour. There is not min or max time for this. Go with the flow. Look at the words afterwards and ask yourself what it means and why it was given to you. 
  2. Energy Clearing smudge the house, clear the clutter and energise your crystals tonight. For the full guide and detailed explanation – Moon Rituals Guide 
  3. Intentions – write down all the things you feel you need to let go of, including people in your lives who may be toxic, to be able to move forward. Be honest and be clear. Imagine that you have the ears of the powers that may be. This works if you believe and trust. Take it outside and burn it as you say in your mind “I let go, I let go, I let go of all the things I no longer need in my life” 

In summary, this is a time for justice, redemption and personal freedom. Things will fall into place, even if its not entirely clear how it will benefit you straightway. Some of us will begin this phase finding themselves trying to get “justice” as it feels like going up Mt Everest. Everything feels difficult and full of resistance but trust and put your positive foot forward because there is light in the darkness. It may not be everything that you want but it will be enough for you to move forward. This auspicious new moon will empower you to “follow your dreams” if you let her.

If you are open to Hindu deities then please do listen to this beautiful Durga chant song – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GuCDLdrvkA Listen to this in bed before you go to sleep. It is super relaxing and powerful. 

I love to hear from you. Has this resonated with you? Come back and feedback when things fall into place. Whatever your story, I want to hear it. Leave a comment here.

Happy Navartri and New Moon!

June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

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
