Full Blood Moon & Lunar Eclipse Bumper Edition Guide

There is a buzz word right now – “longest lunar eclipse” spreading across social media, some invoking fear and others useful amongst the sea of vagueness. While the thought of darkness taking over the light makes me think of old folklore associated with lunar eclipses . I am feeling the energy at the moment and it is POSITIVE and transformational.

It is natural for people to assume the worst when there is darkness. People see the light was pure, reassuring and clarity while darkness arouses suspicion because you can’t see what is ahead of you. Consider this though, sometimes you have to walk through the dark to find the light. Your senses are heightened in the dark because you have to rely on your sense of feeling, touch and trust your intuition to guide you to the light. The brightness of the light can make us a bit lazy and also mislead us into false comfort. We trust our sense of seeing so much so we forget to see beyond the visual. Hence the darkness is thrust upon us to force us to see the full picture.

So rather than fearing and believing the worst, try to embrace and understand the energy so you too can see the full picture.

I’d like to take you on that journey and help you do just that! It is a long read but comprehensive and I trust you will find it useful.

This is what you need to know – there are important changes taking place right now. From weather pattern, politics to significant areas of your life. People are being pushed forward spiritually and more doors are opening.

The full moon and lunar eclipse on Friday, July 27th 2018 is important because it is the LONGEST lunar eclipse of this century. It will be for 1 hour and 23mins and visible to most parts of the world.

You can check what time it will occur where you are hereThe Full Moon is called a Blood Moon due to the reddish colour caused the light reflected by the earth’s atmosphere. This is a monumental revelation for all of us to realise how strong we are and time for a breakthrough. For those who have been working hard towards a goal and finding it difficult to keep on the path, you will be rewarded. You will see help coming through in ways you didn’t think possible. Keep the faith and hang in there!

The next two weeks will show you of what you CAN achieve. Things that felt sticky in March/May time will feel lighter and solutions will come to you.

The Universe is literally drawing a line under some of the stress and difficultly, transform and reset the energy within us. Some of us will be facing belief patterns or habits that need to be transmuted.

We will be asked to work from a clean slate after this weekend, so we can see things differently, with clarity and less emotional baggage.

The energy, heavy it may be, is actually very cleansing and also, in some ways exciting.

The combination of the Mercury Retrograde, Blood Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse has a profound effect on the planet. The weather pattern which is sensitive to full moons and eclipses, is causing fires, damage, floods and in some cases, death. The Ascended Masters who I channel as I write this, are calling this a “wake up call” because finally the world will see what global warming will feel like. In 20 years or more, the world will face a crisis like no other.  The countries with four seasons will have a tropical weather and most of Asia will experience snow and milder temperatures forcing a change in culture and lifestyle. There will also serious talks on fuel alternatives and existing practises which may be causing issues to Earth’s inner layers.

Just like patterns emerge in our lives close to energy boosting days like full moon and eclipses, this also happens with the weather and also political patterns to force decision makers face up to the truth. It also allows those who have been trying to bring this issues to their attention, to finally be believed.

There are six planets in retrograde and there is a strong universal energy to make changes in the way we are governed. It is also a time for secrets to be uncovered and brought into the light.

While this means people from the past suddenly getting in touch or appearing in our lives, behaviour patterns in the spotlight for you to acknowledge and release it could also bring certain spoken words or whispers to light. This may end a friendship or encourage you to move away from a social circle you had been dependent on. You could see it as a bad thing but you may have already felt disenfranchised for some time but ignoring the signs. If you are evolving as a person, perhaps through your interest or life situation then you must seek like-minded individuals. I see this a lot with people who are developing spiritually, who no longer have anything in common with their old buddies but cling on not wanting to face facts. People need to leave your space at a certain time to make way for the new. Don’t be discouraged or upset. Acknowledge and let go. Resistance and anger creates a culture of drama and a pattern that will take ages to break.

We need to find people who are vibrating with people on the same frequency with us, be it spiritual or not.

Globally, the Universe is going to shine a light on secrets and manipulation. The behaviours and old ways of working including structure will no longer serve us. People power is going to be the way forward. Mars and Mercury’s influence will bring on rebellion and focus on the heart energy.

The Anahata in its original Sanskrit name encourages compassion, love and integration. This is the balance of the heart and the mind, the need to be part of something, to belong and to be loved. When this fourth chakra is imbalanced then all sorts of patterns emerge – fear, loathing, feeling isolated and disengaged. The heart chakra is a balance of our ambition and our soul’s purpose.

The world is now led by ambition and self. The Divine with the help of the Spiritual world are working hard to shift to focus to the heart. We face aggression in every form and the world in general has become impatient, intolerant and negative. Leaders in place have reverted to EGO and SELF and the greater good has been overshadowed. We are being called into service to help make the chances so that there is less of an “I” and more of a “We”.

This is a dangerous time for the world as there are three leaders who are blood hungry and pursuing a bigger war.  Aggression and knee jerk reactions will not serve the world, in fact it will stunt our evolution as people.

The energy and power will shift back to the people.  A revolution is being planned, something like the #meetoo campaign but bigger and stronger. This will challenge governments and unite people around the world. It will however take a tragedy to achieve this. There will be a huge surge of emotions and people will be expressing their views on social media as well as on the streets.

Mars energy brings compassion and changes to humanity to work together. This is a chance for the world and the leaders to find new ways of solving old problems peacefully.

Channelled words  ”There will be no us and them. It is only be US. University anger. People seeking answers to questions. Hidden agendas will be revealed. There will be another data breach that will reveal serious links between USA and another country – implicating UK”  (For some reason I kept getting drawn to a Spanish speaking country)

“A breakthrough in how they treat Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. A revelation on something that has been locked away will shock people to the core”

How it will affect you:

  1. Aches and pains – it is not unusually to have a few scrapes here and there around this time of the month. Our heads become a bit cloudy with the energy and we can get distracted. Some of them might even be a reminder to pay attention to details and stop trying to do everything at one go! Aching necks and shoulders is a sign of your own resistance to change. This is good but try to understand what your body is saying to you. Is it a change of behaviour, habit or patterns?
  2. The energy is helping you discover your own power in a situation or relationship. Stop and consider what comes your way the next two weeks. Understand why it is happening and see with clear eyes, your initial reaction and change it.
  3. Face the things you would rather sweep under the carpet. This will help with the “let go” process and make way for new sense of self-worth.
  4. We will be shown what our impact on people around us and our community – is it good or bad? Do you change or stay the way it is?
  5. Your emotional health – are you feeling safe, intimidated or strong? Are you a victim or an aggressor?
  6. Mercury Retrogrades throws communication into chaos, while it brings frustration, misunderstandings and even anger, it can also help us understand where we are going wrong.
  7. The key thing to remember is that the energy will affect individuals differently. We are all at different stages of evolution and awareness. Some will see it as positive and others will be shaking with fear. So expect some dramas especially those who are very insecure. Just remember you do not have to be involved. Step away as your patience will be tested and people around you will go out of their way to be abrasive. Patience will allow you to see the full picture.

Three things you MUST do before the weekend:

  • Smudge the house with sage or incense.

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!
