How to tap into the intense energies of the Mercury Retrograde, New Moon and Solar Eclipse in August
What is your intuition telling you? If you want to understand what it means and how it will affect you, the best place to seek the answers is within YOU.
Listen to yourself at this powerful time. What are the issues that are cropping up, are people approaching you for answers, ad are you facing things that have annoyingly slipped out of the carpet that you so carefully hid under?
The New Moon encourages us to let go of all habits, patterns and even addictions to food, people and situations. This is the universe’s way of preparing us for the Full Moon energy which empowers us to take action to bring about chance.
Some of these issues will be difficult and sometimes even painful to face but trust me, there will be signals by the universe for good empowering opportunities. The best way to harness this energy is to listen, focus and take action.
If things are difficult, then understand that these are the issues you need to overcome, release and transform in order for you to move forward.
Picture a road. Visualise the issues, difficulties or negativity that you are facing now as mud or even quick sand. Now imagine this mud all over this road. Visualise yourself stuck in the middle of this.
Now think about your options:
- Stay where you are
- Find a way out
- Blame someone
- Blame yourself
There is only ONE positive option and that is to find a way out by CHANGE. If you are stuck in the same old patterns or blame games then you are extending that pain and not moving forward. It is like playing a record again and again, like a broken record. You will go on loop and nothing will be different. I remember saying a while back that at the end of every year, say on the 30th or 31st of December, people will say things like “I hope this year will be different” on Facebook, hoping the New Year will bring change. But “nothing will change of you don’t change YOU”.
We fear change but if we look at change as transformational then we can also accept that it is empowering in some way too. If we see the positive in change then there is nothing to fear and everything to love.
At times these hard to face things like anger, resentment, failures and even health issues but they crop up for us to deal with differently each time. When you face them head on, then the transformation happens.
I sometimes get messages from my followers when I share my Moon Ritual guide, saying they hope something will change in their lives or that a situation will become easier. When I ask how they have dealt with the issue, they have no answers. They are hoping that by following my rituals that everything was going to magically happen.
No. You have to take action. Often the challenges are brought to you for to take action and break away from the norm.
Create your wish list, visualise yourself celebrating and feeling the things you wished for. Ask for things that are realistic and ask for it in stages. The universe can only make things happen which are possible and things you can take action on.
For example if you want to buy a house, you must take action by viewing it, looking into your finances etc. You can’t magically own a house without doing the paper work or putting a bid in. Once you have made the physical move to “want” the house then the universe will have make it happen. For example help by a source of money you never even know existed appears to help you with the deposit.
Or someone asking for extra income takes action by say applying for a part time or freelance job which appears out of the blue. When your intuition tells you “it feels right”, or “do it” then take ACTION and listen to yourself!
The universe can help you by suggesting, prodding, putting things and people in front of you. But you have to listen, understand and take the opportunities. Pay attention to things you may view on social media and your devices. Remember the powers may be have to fight to get our attention these days compared to the old days when the stars, moon and sun were all they needed to pass on messages.
These days they have to compete with videos of cats, quotes, Humans of New York (which is brilliant by the way) and cooking channels. So when you see something inspiring or when your solar plexus start swirling, then listen to your inner compass.
There is only one person who can bring about change, YOU. There is only one person you need to listen to, YOU.
If you want to focus on yourself, then sit quietly with some soft meditation music or just in the silence. Feel your breath – in and out. Breathe in and then hold for 3 counts and then release slowly. Keep doing this until your body feels lighter and relaxed.
Focus on your heart as you do this. Think of your heart and then feel the centre of your heart. Allow thoughts to come but think of them as clouds that float from left to right and then, float away.
Put your earphones on and listen to my short audio recording which will help you through this exercise.

I recently talked about our life purpose and about speaking the truth in my blog post – Life Purpose It was one of my full blown channeled writing for which I received lots of great feedback and lovely messages by people who resonated with my writing. I am always very touched and humbled when this happens.
Well we are coming to full circle this weekend, starting with tomorrow’s full moon which is also called the “blue moon”. This is an important but emotional full moon for the sensitive, empath and those with fiery tempers. Things have been cropping up to challenge you lately from people pushing you for answers to finding out the truth a situation, the motives behind certain situations which has been hidden from you. The challenge is not what you are being faced with – it is HOW you deal or face it which will make the difference. Your spiritual lesson this weekend is about options and perspective. Use it to your advantage. You may well surprise yourself and realise how you have changed!
The Blue Moon isn’t actually blue but WIKI suggests its related to the fact its a rare occurrence of 13 moons a year rather than 12 and perhaps this is where “once in a blue moon” comes from. The spiritual meaning relates to the Throat chakra which influences our communications and the “truth”. This is your time to shine and be brave. Take the bull by the horns and get yourself into gear. Stop being led and be the one leading. I sense a lot people cutting ties with people and situations which no longer serve their highest good. Some of you may feel like everything is crumbling under your feet but please believe that you are strong, able and finally free to do what you want. Don’t be afraid, be positive and see every challenge as a reason to succeed.
If it all gets a little too much then go back to basics – take a deep breath, take a walk, listen to music – do whatever you need to do to keep calm. Take your time, rest, drink plenty of water and ride the tide. You will feel better and have clarity in the next days and weeks.
This is such a strong time for manifesting and getting your heart’s desire from a dream into a reality so don’t give up! Read my article on Full Moon Rituals to positively harness the energy that is being given to us.
Tomorrow’s Blue Moon has a stronger significance because it falls on the 21st which totals to 3 which is all about communication and expressing yourself! The number 3 also signifies growth, abundance and a powerful manifesting vibration! What does this mean? personal growth allows us to grow closer to our life purpose. For example if you are in a 9-5 office job but your life purpose is really to start your own business then a catalyst must be found to trigger this “new life”. It could be being made redundant, your office moving to a different city or even being fired, which sounds horrible but there needs to be a reason for that next step and if you are too comfortable, nothing will happen. The universe instigates events which can be painful, unfair and difficult but it is part of the bigger plan.
The number 3 guides us to trust our intuition, stop listening to everyone else, instead let your own soul guide you to the next level. Be optimistic that your future is in the hands of the Angels, God, the universe or deities – whatever your believes may be.
I always get loads of downloads and messages in my dreams close to and during full moons which I write down in my dream book the moment I wake up. Its great way to keep track of your dreams, take note of messages and see how it relates to your life.
Use this beautiful energy to manifest abundance. Read my article on Full Moon Rituals which is my free gift to you. It is a collection of rituals which I use personally and share with my clients and students. There is a lot more to it which you can learn at my workshops but this is a good starting point.
I leave you with lots of love and may the Blue Moon bring you closer to your Soul’s Mission and bring you plenty of abundance and joy.

2016 is an important year for many reasons. The numbers 2,0, 1 and 6 comes up to 9 which has a strong spiritual vibration. It is a power packed number and thus brings about big changes to some of us. I see this in the wonderful people book in for a reading. More and more are coming to strong crossroads. This is a make or break year for some of us. You will be forced to face facts and seek your life purpose. No longer are you going to drift around and let life pass you by. You will want know your soul purpose and make things happen. How many of us saw this Facebook status “I hope this year is going to be better. Last year was horrible” on NYE ? Perhaps it was you who posted it, after a frustrating year. Why do we go from one year to the next, feeling the same level of frustration and expect change to happen without changing any of our own behaviour patterns? Why doesn’t the new year clear the slate and allow us to start again after the clock strikes 12? The reason is simple.You carry forward the bad relationship, the angina, the financial issues and the horrible boss into every month, year or day. It doesn’t just go away because of change in time! I found a fantastic quote which made so much sense – “2016 is not going to change unless you do“. Let’s face it, time is almost like sand in your hands. What makes it tangible and interesting is the memories, the people, the emotions and the experiences. What makes it heavy and difficult is the challenges – losing people we love, dealing with health and emotional issues and difficulties.
The problem will remain the same but how we deal with it, view it and work with it, influences your emotions and your life experience. There are different approaches to every problem, just like the man who encountered a huge rock on his path, he could either try to move the rock, climb it or walk around it. It all depends on his perspective and attitude. Seen as a huge challenge, then the choice is to give up or turn back. The shift here is to view the rock as a positive challenge to overcome, like how a mountain climber would. In this state of mind, the man would find ways to get to the other side. It took me a long time to get to the “other side” but it has made a huge difference to my life. It is never to late to change and shift your awareness . Once you change your perspective of life, things will get less complex and easier to manage. If a problem looks like a large slab of ice then you need to chip away at it until it breaks down and becomes more manageable.
2016 is going to bring complete turnabout in not only your own life situation but in your very soul and will touch you very deeply. You will see a shift in your own behaviour, be able to see things clearly and sense a departure from the old into the new. Challenges and situations will be thrown onto your path and you WILL have to face it. Sweeping it under the carpet is no longer an option but I sense a positive outcome so keep the fate. I am seeing more and more men and women facing relationship breakdowns, huge shifts in their emotions over their life right now who WANT to make changes but not sure of the why, what and whens. Often the reason they sought the reading is different from what they actually needed to face or change. The clarity and direction in a psychic reading pulls out the disease not the symptom. Once you get to the core then it all makes sense. So many people walk through my doors with heavy hearts and leave with smiles, hugs and feeling lighter! This is one of the perks of the job, to see the begins of a transformation.
You see, facing the truth doesn’t always need to be a bad thing. There are times in our lives when we have to get real and make changes to live a happier life. End of a relationship is huge but if it is to enable you to live the life you were meant to live, then its not a bad thing is it? What if your purpose was to open a cafe in southern Spain, bathe in warm sea water every morning and speak Spanish? What if your purpose was to retrain and become a teacher instead of a stay at home mum? What if you could be happier with someone who accepts you for who you are instead of the person who constantly criticises you for being who you are? Until you address your life purpose and break these behaviour patterns, you will always be in the “same zone”. The place where everything changes except for you.
Just drifting and “just being” is no longer good enough. Time to take charge and in charge! I am also seeing “spirituality” “Awakening” “intuition” “Angels” floating around a lot more in conversations and on social media. 2016 is a big year for us human beings.
There is a huge shift in our consciousness and people are starting to wake up! We are all born with intuition, inner knowing and understanding but it lays dormant until there is an “awakening”. Some of get it earlier on, like myself when I was a child I knew there was more to what i was seeing and feeling. I saw spirits, heard them and messages kept rolling in. Others go through difficulty and then WHAM! something happens to open their third eye to the other realm. When I first moved to my town, I didn’t hear anything about spiritualism or mediums but now its exploding by the minute! I am so lucky to have a beautiful Angel who arranges one of the best Mind, Body and Spirit fayres around – Janine who showcases some of the area’s best psychics and mediums. Of course social media helps to engage people sitting on the fence as far as the spirit world is concerned.
The number nine is the end of the phase so whatever that started one, two or three years ago, will come to completion. Whatever that no longer serves your highest good will come to an end. There will be new people, paths and clarity to take you one step closer to your highest purpose.

The final super moon of 2015 is heading our way tomorrow. The energies from the last two supermoons in August and September has been intense and some of us have been put through the mill but some of us have showed ‘em who is boss and stepped into your true potential.
Take a step back now and think about what has been happening since August. How did you deal with a difficult time? Did you hear news that broke your heart and your world? The question is…..not what but “how” did you deal with it? Did you let self-pity and remorse swallow you or did you take action? In every negative action or situation, there is a double positive waiting to happen. Learning lessons await in every situation. Unfortunately most of us close our hearts the moment something bad happens. Bad can mean different things to different people. It could be not being able to get a ticket to a concert, failing an exam, finding out you have a medical condition, a cancelled holiday, breaking up with your partner to something so devastating as losing a loved one.
If I look back on my life, I can now see that while my last big breakup was devastating, I now see that it spurred me to make a life changing decision to move to the UK. I would never had done that if I had just let that relationship define me. I kept getting signs – synchronicity was happening all the time and dreams were vivid at that time. I remember waking up one day and the thought of moving came into my mind. With heart break and fear, clouding my mind, I initially dismissed it. But then the more I thought about it, my heart opened up and I started to picture myself in London. Obviously I was thinking of the likes of Notting Hill and Kensington, not the reality of Tooting Broadway! But the more my heart was open, I was able to really connect to the vision. I listened to my intuition and took action even though I had barely any money to my name or knew anyone in London. I am truly grateful as I met my husband at the end of my first year and married him two years ago! I would never have met him if I stayed where I was.
How about someone who just heard they have cancer and have six months to live? There is no right or wrong way to deal with that sort of news. Some of us may be strong enough to contemplate spending the first few months running a campaign to raise funds for cancer research for example. Some of us may change the lives of people around us for the better through finances or by being an inspiration. There could a child in the family who would go on to study medicine to help find a cure for cancer. The possibilities are endless! There is possibility in imPOSSIBLE.
So reflect on all that has happened in the last few months and how you have dealt with it. Write it down on paper or electronically – whatever is easier for you! You need three columns – one for when, what and how. When it happened, what happened and how you dealt with it. You can add a fourth column – outcome.
Someone came to see me a few months ago and the reading was all about her taking charge of her life, acknowledging what was happening and making things happen. I saw her twice and the message didn’t changed, except for some more additional information. There was only so much a reading can do…nothing will change unless you do! Since then I have seen how she has taken something that has made her so unhappy and turned it into an inspiration to help other people. I can see how much confidence and self-worth she has gained in such a short time. She has also found her voice! I can see from the side lines how she dealt with the issue and the outcome. It’s a big deal so don’t dismiss it. Putting it on paper or where you can go back now and then to update and reflect on what has happened and how far you have come. It also allows us to evaluate where we are now and put everything into perspective.
So now as we prepare for the last Supermoon of 2015 – put everything you want and solutions to your struggles on your list. Don’t let anything – emotions or situations push you into negativity! Try to be positive and keep a clear mind.
Please be grateful for everything you have and thank the universe for the help that has come your way so far. Put your wishes on a list, burn them tomorrow night before you go to bed and don’t forget to put your crystals out.
