First New Moon of 2020 Ritual & Guide

** NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS **
Jan 24 2020
9.42pm UK Time
January has seen some pretty heavy energy about which has affected people. We have been struggling and the days have felt very long and challenging. Depending on where you are in your journey, this month would have proved troublesome.
Did you feel like a firefighter having to put out fires everywhere ? We have been kept on our toes, trying to solve problems and yet, there was clarity on how to get things moving.
Sometimes we have to be in the eye of the storm to be forced to find a way out.
The New Moon will bring some harsh truths to us. We have to face them in order to correct our flaws, improve and be better people.
I always find New Moons to be an emotional trigger. We lose people we love at this time. Most people find this difficult to hear but I have seen a pattern emerge over the years.
Emotions run high and the energy feels dense. As I said, there will be clarity and healing as we go on.
Listen to your intuition as ideas and solutions are flooding in, however we must be ready to listen. Don’t bury your head in the sand.
New Moons always bring a fresh start to old problems. This moon brings partnerships and people to help with career or business. So keep your eyes and ears open to possibilities.
This could plant seeds for success in 2020
Don’t make impulsive decisions or do something to “show them” which both come from a negative space. Open your heart to positive words, ideas and see the good in people.
Be careful of what you put out whether its social media or in spoken word. If you are angry with someone then deal with it or process it privately. Putting it out there will only encourage gossip and propel you into dramas that you don’t need at the moment.
The Aquarius sign signals stubbornness and also compassion. So open your heart to see what you are holding on to which may be emotional rather than logical. This could be something that is holding you back. We are also being asked to be compassionate to even those who are against us.
The New Moon falls on the Lunar New Year on the 24th which brings us the Year of the Rat. Like the rat, hard work and being industrious and quick witted will be beneficial. Don’t put off something that you can do today.
The Year of the Rat is also one of being ambitious so dream big!
Here is my New Moon ritual to help you navigate through this energy
 

Meditation:

This New Moon encourages to be more heart-centred.  Meditate to this beautiful music with your eyes closed and with a flower of your choice in your hands. I do this with roses usually yellow or red. Just let your flow with the music and chant.

I guarantee you will feel all tingy, light and your body will soften with this gorgeous meditation.

Please do share and comment if this resonates with you.

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,

September’s Full Harvest Moon in Aries

September’s Full Harvest Moon in Aries

Full Harvest Moon in Aries

September 25, 2018 – 03:52 am (GMT/BST)

If you have been feeling pushed, prodded and put out to dry, then you are not alone. The Universe energy has been redefining us and helping us face up to the gritty aspects of our lives and personality to make room for better things since early this year. You need to get rid of the clutter before you redecorate it. This is how energy works, you have to let go of certain things to make room for positive energy. It is easy to wreck a room but hours to clean it up! This is what the Universe has been doing for us.

The autumnal equinox  the first day of autumn was on Sunday (Sept 23rd). This is when the equator passes the centre of the sun and gives the same amount of daylight in both the south and north poles. The days get shorter and the nights longer. Equinox in Latin means equal light.

This is the time we start appreciating the light, knowing that the coming months will be grey and cold.  We can draw lessons from nature’s life cycle and keep a hold of the light in our lives.

Honour the light within you. Give thanks to what you have to build on the abundance. The more you pay attention to and acknowledge the light within you, it will encourage more positivity in your life.

If you keep feeling negative then remember that you will be manifesting more of the same. So be aware what you are focusing on and manifesting. It will be a cycle that will be hard to beat as it will be your default setting.

Don’t be surprised if you have been feeling like you need space from people and from situations. There is a need to keep our energy and space clean from others. You will want to keep to yourself and remove yourself from difficult situations. Relationships may suffer or improve depending on where you are in your individual journeys. Some of us will want space between us and our loved ones which may cause the other party distress. You have nothing to worry about long as your communication channels are open. Explain how you feel and why you feel a certain way and ensure they are aware it’s nothing to do with them.

There is a reason for this. We are levelling up and our soul is trying to reconnect with Life Purpose- the reason why we have come to Earth. We all have a different reason for this life. Michael Jackson was here to create timeless music, inspire generations of musicians after him and maybe even make us more sympathetic to people with skin conditions. I can see this with Winnie Harlow who suffers from vitiligo. While Michael was ridiculed and suffered mentally from this condition, Winnie is celebrated for her appearance. It is beautiful to see her on front covers of magazines as a top model.

Your reason for being here could be anything from being a lesson to someone in your life to writing a book to inspire school children. Until you are aware of this, there will be a pattern of resistance that will occur again and again until you acknowledge it.

There is also a fire element to this Full Moon. So you will be pushed towards finishing what you started. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you have been surprised by how fast things moved for you at the beginning of the month. We have a very productive window until the October 9th new moon.

As Aries can be a little fiery so remember your energy can be a little over whelming for others and you need to take a deep breath before reacting. I have mentioned relationships being tested so just beware that you need to balance your emotions this month.  You will be passionate about certain subjects and I feel there will be plenty to discuss in terms of a shakeup in global politics. So just keep a level head and be kind.

This Full Moon will test your emotions but push you to keep going towards your goals. It will also remind you to keep an open mind to be able to make way for positive outcomes. You will also be encouraged to make time and space for yourself. You will feel emotional and there will be some crying. Old wounds such as grief and traumas will resurface for you to reflect on. Crying is incredibly healing and sometimes we need it to wash away some of the build up stress and sadness that we store in our hearts and minds. Physical symptoms right now that people may experience are heady feeling, almost like a cold and tummy issues. This is because the energy is hitting us hardest in our solar plexus and Crown Chakras. If you feel overwhelmed then sage yourself from top to bottom, starting from the top of your head down to your 3rd eyes, heart, solar plexus down to your root chakra and let the energy flow down to your feet. I have been loving this beautiful calming music to mediate to this week. 

Tonight is a great time to do your Full Moon Ritual. Below is a summary of what to do but for full instructions please read my Moon Ritual the most comprehensive guide to doing your moon rituals. 

August Full Moon – The Next Steps

August Full Moon – The Next Steps

** August Full Sturgeon Moon**
 
This is the moment to put pen to paper. Write down your ideas and thoughts. You will be inspired by this beautiful full moon to get things done.
 
Most of us may have been “led” of been a “follower” in our own lives these last couple of months. Time has arrived for you to take charge and make things happen. Working towards your long term goals and planning the future.
 
Don’t feel intimidated by this. The very thought of committing to a “future” may feel immense pressure to “what if I make a mistake”. Just remember it is groundwork in the bigger scheme of things. Imagine having a treasure map and you have a vague idea of where to look but not entire sure of what. Isn’t that a head start to finding the future you want?
 
Use this energy boost and creative spark to set yourself on a new adventure in this thing called LIFE!
 
The Sun is in Virgo while the Moon is in Pisces. This means you will be encouraged to have order, take charge of your immediate concerns and visualise your future now.
Pisces helps us see beyond our problems and to rise above. Virgo is far more practical and makes use of all tools and abilities. Like the worker bee and ant, it gets the job done. Pisces can be selfless and sometimes run around in pointless circles trying to get things done. Balance has to be struck for efficiency and purpose.
 
Health concerns will take centre stage right now and there is a sense of frustration in the form of source. So if you are looking to the root of the problem then make sure you aren’t just medicating to suppress the symptoms and get professional advice. Don’t let little setbacks make you feel down but make you more determined to get answers.
 
Virgos and Pisces people will feel this full moon the most and will deal with some significant personal issues. Light will be thrown on to relationships and truths that you have been trying to avoid. This is all in balance with the good stuff – personal freedom and drive to push forward.
 
Full Moons are all about energy and life purpose alignment. We have been through the mill with the endless retrogrades and eclipses, pushed to the max and wondering where which way to turn.
 
In this time, the keyword has been “trust” and “hope” that the universe knows better. That things will get better and this was all meant to be. We have been dealing with old issues that have come back, forcing us to deal with it whether we liked it or not.
 
I should know, I had two issues crop up one where a root canal I did in 2008 fail which then led to surgery to extract the roots and then a month ago, one of my fillings fell out. I remember in 2000 when I was watching football on tv with my ex in Malaysia, when the tooth broke when bit into a pizza with dried chilli flakes. Part of the tooth fell out and the dentist patched up with loads of filling. Eight years later I bit into a slice of pizza, about 15 mins before I was being picked up for an event with Fright Nights in Gloucestershire when I bit into what I thought was a big stone. Turns out it was part of my filling. Imagine my stress and anxiety as I was about to head out to work! Luckily my husband rushed out to get some temporary filling and I managed to work without much fuss. My dentist replaced the filling with a more secure but temporary filling. There isn’t much they can do and it would be a case of letting nature take its course. I just thought it was so ironic to have pizza play such a big role in the life of one teeth! A small but significant show of the cycle of life. 
 
So yes, we have been dealing with a lot this year and for many of us, the cogs have stayed in one place for a long time. Time moved very slowly and frustration has set in. Not to worry as the energy is moving now. It is important to remember that when things are not working out, and if you have tried everything then REST.  Always try to understand what the message is being sent to you. There is always a reason for things happening the way they are. Are you being asked to change the way you do things, rest or accept help? 
 
Things will pick up pace and you will be rushing around but bear in mind that it has to be “efficient” and not a wasted effort. Plan and analyse your moves now. This will help you in the long run.  Just remember all the difficult stuff has made a stronger you!

May’s Full Moon: Five things to do this week

The shifts of these last couple of months in 2018 has been intense and for some, life changing. There has been a number of new beginnings that has pushed us out of our comfort zones. This has been from a shift in our own ability to grasp reality, confidence to how we view the world. The obvious ones are career, relationship and where we live. Do not underestimate shifts to go with our emotions and thinking because they spark off massive transformations in all areas of our lives.

As we head into May’s Full Moon which falls on May 29th, which is in Sagittarius, we will have a huge urge to “break free” from traditions, restrictions and look to re-energise our relationship sector.  This shift will help those who are caught up in cycles – of addiction, love-hate relationships to playing the victim. Healing old family wounds or things that have shaped your relationship attraction will influence how you perceive your partner or even who you attract. If you are in a self sabotage cycle then you will always be pushing your partner away because it never feels right. This is a sabotage syndrome but also one of defence. The moment someone gets too close then you want to protect yourself.

Use this shift in energy and with the Sagittarius influence on the moon to see through all this and find your freedom within. Relationship matters will be the core discussion until June 15th. Don’t sweep it under the carpet, try to get to the bottom of the issue, why you feel a certain way or why someone is behaving in a way that upsets you. 

Don’t be surprised if old flames or friends you are no longer speaking to, come stumbling into your life at this time. Lessons need to be learned and closure required to end the cycle. If you always feel like a “victim” then understand where you stand in the story and who is the aggressor.  Does it feel “safe” to be the victim? Do you need to change things so you have a different story line where you are neither?

If are always “rescuing” someone in your life from people, situations or emotions, which feel draining then change this. Give yourself the freedom to walk away.  Use this full moon to ask questions because they will come to you.

Many of us will start to feel more grounded and wanting to get in touch with our true feelings. You will also want to change your habits to include more fun and time for yourself. 

Our dreams this week will be deep, vivid and some will be prophetic. Spirit will be able to step into our dreams so watch out for messages, symbols and ideas.

Five Things to do to get the most of this energy: 

  • Identify the area you need to address 
  • Write down how you feel about your situation
  • Write down your dreams this week – this is important!
  • Do your Full Moon ritual on May 29th 
  • This is best done any time between now and the 30th. Allocate about 20-30mins or an hour if you wish. Find a comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed and listen to this beautiful and uplifting Gaytri Mantra on your earphones.  Close your eyes, breath regularly and slowly.Try to sing along as that will distract your mind and allow your soul to speak. Keep paper and pen next to you. Write down anything that drifts into your mind. Allow yourself to let go and just follow the mantra and music. You will be very tingly and calm afterwards. Do this before you go to bed and you will sleep really well.
