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.
October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

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. 

Leap of Faith An original acrylic painting by Angela Mitchell

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
