2020’s First Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Guidance

2020’s First Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Guidance

Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 2020

January 10, 2020 – 07:21 pm (GMT/BST)

This Full Wolf Moon is going to help us clean things up in our lives. The tussle between the mind and the heart has been happening for too long.  As humans we tend to keep doing the things to keep the status quo and often try not to ruffle any feathers.

The time has come however to take a deep look at areas of our lives that need to be reviewed. This means being true to yourself. Are you doing what you should be doing?

The sign of Cancer influencing the Full Moon means there is a very sentimental edge to this energy.  This will help you see your relationship with others and make the necessary changes to clear the way for a healthier relationship with yourself. We can outgrow relationships but still hang on whether its friends or family. Facing the truth and realising how you feel will help to release or shift the power struggle.

Eclipses can shake things up! So we will see some interesting news that will shake things up a little. Don’t fear this as it will bring some positive change.

The energy feels very direct and encouraging. We are being asked to get more organised and sort things out to prepare for a busy few months. This means getting paper work sent off, details looked and to stop procrastinating.

These are things that hold you back and stop the Universe from being able to manifest.

We are being asked to reconnect with people, find those who “get you” and step into our power.  There is so much divide and pain in the world right now so it is important to come together as one. This feels appropriate as the full moon is also called the Wolf Moon. As we know wolves hunt in packs. So look at areas in your lives where you need to work together or connect with others.

Mother Moon helps us find this in our hearts and lead the way.

For those who did my New Year ritual below just follow No 3 from the ritual for the Full Moon;

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.

Full Moon Ritual:

You will need:

  • Sage
  • Safe pot or vessel 
  • Lighter
  • Water 
  • Glass bowl 
  • Intentions list (pen and paper) 

Instructions:

  1. 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. 
  2. Cleanse your crystals – if you have any crystals in the house then full moons are the perfect time to cleanse them. This is particularly important with crystals that you use close to your body. Take note that some crystals are water sensitive. Do not put amber, turquoise, red coral, fire opal, moonstone, calcite, kyanite, kunzite, angelite, azurite, selenite into water.  Put the crystals in some cooled boiled water into a glass bowl and cover with cling film. Leave overnight to bask in the full moon energy.  You can leave the bowl with water without the crystals overnight and then dip the crystals and then place on a kitchen towel to dry off.  I have done this for a while with my water sensitive crystals without any issues. Use the water in your shower/bath or into your plants. 
  3. Intentions list – This is an important aspect of manifesting and harnessing  Full Moon energy.  Do this before you start the ritual. Put some paper and pen near you and 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 right now. 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. Once you have smudged the house with sage, go outside with your list(s) and a fire safe pot or area in the garden. If you don’t have a garden you can use a safe pot and do this in your balcony. Put the rest of your sage that you used earlier into the pot. Hold your intentions list and close your eyes (outside). Ask Mother Moon to help bring you what you need. Burn each page slowly. I like to have a lit candle near me so the paper catches fire quickly and burns faster. Let it drop into the pot and let it burn. For those who did my New Year ritual and wrote down your intentions, you can go ahead and burn your list. No need for a new list unless you want to.

Happy Full Moon and Lunar  Eclipse!

Don’t forget to share and comment! I love to hear from you! 

November Full Moon in Taurus

November Full Moon in Taurus

Nov 12 2019

1.34pm UK Time

Full Moon in Taurus Beaver Moon 

Full Moons are all about completion and often very illuminating (pun intended).  We see things come to full circle around the full moon (1-2 days before and after) especially things that started on a new moon or the last full moon. Over the years I have kept track of certain aspects of my life and see this link emerge and found it absolutely fascinating. This is one of the reasons why I write these guides and share my knowledge with my readers.

When we see these links, and then join the dots together, patterns appear and offer us the full picture. Image this being a treasure hunt and the purpose is your life. Interesting right? Life would be much easier to navigate if we knew then to start a new job or the right time to get into a relationship or the type of people to avoid. We know this but as we grow older, the more information gets pumped into our senses and the more caught up we are in LIFE as we know it, that the light that is inner knowledge, dims.

This month’s full moon will illuminate certain areas of our lives from relationships to health. Cracks are starting to appear and show themselves to you. The time has come to focus on fixing it not patching things up and hoping they will go away. So expect hidden truths to be revealed to you in the form of health to truths that need to be dealt with. If you have been trying to hide from yourself then the universe will make it impossible to ignore.

2019 has been a year of up and downs and unpredictability. Shows you where you are most vulnerable to help you fix things. Health in particular – yours and others close to you would have been a focus. Tells you who you need to prioritise and to take better care of yourself.

The first half of 2020 will be busy trying to find solutions. It will be pointless if you don’t know what you need to resolve, hence the energy is doing it for you now. Be true to yourself and try to see what you know need attention.

Collective consciousness is being pushed forward by unrevealing vulnerability – from politics, weather to our loved ones. The reason for this is that the way forward is to work together, to support and nurture together. We cannot stand alone and hope to be counted. We are being asked to help, share and be there for others. This is the only way the world is to survive.

I suppose many of us in this very modern world think the system will do it for us, but actually it is in the hands of everyone to make sure we are okay. There will be system failure in the New Year but I don’t know how it will materialise just yet. I am sure though that we will have to work together to help each other.

As a result, people’s struggles will be more and more visible. Many of us will want to share our pain and stop trying to do it alone. Instead of being judged (will happen but rise above it), there will be support.

This is a cleansing and powerful Full Moon because of the influences – Scorpio ad Taurus! These power animals pack a punch and bring immense strength. Scorpions are small but powerful yet the Bull is big but a hardworker plus very loyal.

Taurus influences our need for stability, loyalty and planning the future while Scorpio tests our patience. The two energies will bring a push and pull effect on our material vs spiritual alignment.

How will it affect us? Well we will need to have more balance in terms of our material needs e.g money, clothes, earthly pleasures while embracing what our soul wants – spiritual contentment, calm, happiness, your body, life purpose and community.

So with Scorpio influencing the Metro Retrograde right now, there is a battle of wills – yours and your Soul. Taurus doesn’t like change but the Full Moon and the Retrograde is all about CHANGE.

Your situation and our world cannot move forward without change. If we had all resisted technology then there would have not been change and advancement in humanity. If there had not been change, then the old regimes will still be in full force. Change shakes up our sense of stability yet it also stabilises us in the long term.

So if you are going through a divorce or a big career change, then yes it will be difficult when it happens but once it is over, you will find that it happened in your best interest.

Our values are bring changed and challenged. More and more people will be taking to the streets and I see that happening by the February Full Moon as well. In fact this will make decision makers have to listen to the collective voice.

Taurus with the influence of Venus brings about love in all forms. Relationships to seeking to learn to love yourself better. Some of you will benefit from travel and learning from other cultures to grow. Travel has taught me to adapt and also to open my mind. I have lived in three countries and been around the world, sometimes in difficult circumstances. I would not be the person I am without travel.

This Full Moon will also shine a light on your emotional needs. What do you want more of and what do I need to let go of? Can I help someone else? There is an opportunity to take someone under your wings and show them the way. You will feel uplifted and energised by this.

Your boundaries will also be tested. Are you too rigid? Have you put up a fence so strong that no one can reach you? Past hurt will come back into your life and will test you. This is necessary to help you understand where you are with your boundaries. It will also help you heal and let go.

The next few weeks will also test your patience with other people. With the festive season looming, most people will be under pressure to buy gifts, present the best Christmas table and have to deal with difficult people. So patience and pressure sometimes cause tempers to flare.  Take a step back and think before you act.  It works both ways, if you are feeling angry then try to take yourself away from situations that frustrate you.

The Native Americans call it the “beaver moon” or the “frost moon” which is not hard to understand due to the weather in some countries. The beavers take shelter and load up their food supply at this time. So this is the time to prepare for the next few months. Therefore we are being encouraged to work on the areas of our lives that need to nurtured, feed our curiosity and start looking at the future.

There are loads of Angel energies about so ask your Angels to help and show you what you need to know.

THREE THINGS TO DO NOW

  • Do your Full Moon ritual to ensure you manifest what you need and let go of what you don’t.
  • Pay attention to your dreams. Loads of Spirit activity and messages from the Universe right now. Write them down the moment you wake up and see how it relates to your situation.
  • Meditate! Create space and time. Leave pen and paper next to you. Listen to some calm music and just breathe. Focus on your 3rd eye and allow yourself to fall into a calm space. Write down whatever falls into your mind.

If you want a full in-depth  reading about your life then why not booking in a reading with me – book now.

Blessings,

Three things to do this Winter Solstice & Full Moon Weekend

Three things to do this Winter Solstice & Full Moon Weekend

This weekend is super charged with energies that will bring change and disrupt to bring transformation. The Solstice is the nature’s way to remind us not to take things for granted that our modern life is fragile. For example all the technology in the world cannot replace the sunlight, and things don’t always go to plan.

We have to be ready to change to be able to transform and shift our consciousness. Because new beginnings are on the way.

November’s full moon would have given most of us a new sense of determination to make things work so new ideas and opportunities would have been shown to you. Hard work and that resolve would have brought in some results. However these last week or so would have seen you feel a little unbalanced.

There is a sudden sense of loss of direction and questions may have risen about purpose. Don’t be disheartened as this is temporary! Just pause and put your trust in the universe. Take all the actions you need to and leave it to work its magic until after the holidays. There are some things you simply cannot rush through. There will be things that will crop up to help you tweak your plans which you wouldn’t be able to do on hindsight. So just remember that a delay or pause isn’t always a bad thing.

One of the things about the Solstice combined with the Full Moon is that it will TRIGGER you but you won’t know why!  Hence most of us are feeling a little angry and some will even experience that sinking feeling in the stomach. Look beyond the situations that activate these response from you. Who and why? What can you do to change it? These are lessons and messages in some way. Always dig deeper than the surface to understand why and then look for the “how”. How to deal with it? For example is there someone who keeps spewing negativity on FB that makes you angry? How can you do deal with it? Unfollow, defriend, block, ignore or just step away from Facebook for a while?  The choice is yours.

In order to shift or grow as a person, we have to keep filtering out the toxic people and situations so we literally leave the baggage behind. So times like this help us to let go so we have less issues to deal with in the New Year. Sometimes it is best to just cut the cord! It doesn’t mean you are a bad person.

The energy feels a little mischievous! I sense that some of us are feeling rebellious and will want to go against the grain! This can be a useful thing if you are someone who goes out of their way to make everyone else happy or a stickler to the rules. Doing things differently and being a little playful could really help you grow.

If you are a little empathetic or sensitive to energy then you will have felt a strong pull towards the unknown. It is like you know there is a big transformation taking place but you can’t put your finger on it. Ears may be ringing, headaches and also very tense neck muscles.

So this means you have to LISTEN more than you talk this week. You are either not listening to what is being said, so trying to hide from the situation or not allowing anyone else’s opinion in. Time to listen to all arguments to a problem and then making your mind up.

With Christmas next week and stress levels being so high, tempers will flare but there are plenty of triggers so just breathe through your anger and even resentment. Just remember that the combination of the Solstice and the Full Moon tomorrow is all about transformation and will shake things up.

However like lunar energy, this will affect people at different levels. Some will feel very grounded and magical, others highly unsettled. This is because we are all individuals on different places on the path so it cannot be the same for everyone. It also depends on how open we are to change. The more open – the easier and those who fight against it will have a harder time.

Many of us felt incredibly lethargic about two weeks ago and very thirsty too! This is because the energy was building up rapidly and our body were slow to adjust.

Another thing to note is that while I said for some, progress will be slow over the next few weeks, others may find themselves making very sudden decisions about career or business! You may have been grappling for an idea or thought for a while now, procrastinating and fearing it but now it will come to you in a snap! It will all make sense in your mind and the decision will be an easy one to make. Expect some ruffled feathers though. Do remember that new beginnings are slightly challenging as you have to figure things out as you go along. It is a path not yet known.

Now the last Full Moon of 2018 comes to us on Dec 22nd.  This is in the Cancer which is a water sign which means there is an emphasis on emotions and communications. A few days before Christmas with travel chaos, pressure to get everything right and demands put on us, there is no doubt stress is HUGE. So it is important to find ways to keep calm and breathe as much as possible before you communicate otherwise it will be laden with your stress.

There is divine female energy associated with both the sign and the Moon. You will want to protect those close to you, almost like a female tiger. Feelings to do with love, nurturing and companionship will be high. Time to protect that fragile heart of yours and also be compassionate. I feel I need to speak to those who have suffered abuse or have deep resentment in their hearts right now.  Forgiveness is not a weakness. It is not a sign that you have lost. Forgiveness is freedom. This will be a very emotionally charged time so do take care of yourselves.

Remember everything you do these next few days will shape the coming year. We can only move forward if we let go of the past.

21.12.18 in numerology is a number 8 day. This is a reminder about BALANCE – power and emotions. We need a balance with both so make sure you don’t give your power out to other people and equally don’t hog it either! Eight is also known as Karma – you reap what you sow! If you put in the hard work then you will be busy enjoying your rewards next year. This is a number that is associated with abundance so keep your thought positive!

Imagine you have an extra-large suitcase and next to it are rows of people who have been in your life so far. On another row is are heavy bricks filled with pain, anger, tears and resentment. Next to them are clouds of laughter, happiness, happy memories and love.

Now visualise that you fill up the bag with people and the bricks plus a tiny percentage of the clouds.  Your bag will be HEAVY! Now imagine that you have to drag that bag around for the rest of your life. Sounds arduous doesn’t it? Well it certainly is but we humans do this to ourselves sometimes.  We do have a choice even at heart breaking moments on how we deal with life. The person who filled the bag with clouds and just a handful of significant people would have only needed a cabin bag and it would have been extremely light. 

Focus on the LIGHT. It won’t hold you back!

THREE THINGS TO DO BETWEEN NOW AND SATURDAY

  1. Clean the house, get some fresh flowers in and smudge the house with sage
  2. Put your crystals out to reenergise in the moon light
  3. Write down your wish list and the things you want to let go of. Burn on the 22nd

Learn how to do your Moon Ritual here.

Note: it is okay to do the above on Sunday as the energy is still strong the day after.

Happy Solstice & Full Moon 2018

December 2018 Full Moon & Winter Solstice Reading

December 2018 Full Moon & Winter Solstice Reading

We are heading into a massive week of energy changes and stress levels are high. This is the time of the year where we practise selflessness – thinking about others and putting them above our needs. The Winter Solstice on Friday, December 21st is the shortest day and the darkest time of the year so it is important to bring in the light.  
It is also a very good time to reflect, assess and learn from the last couple of months, in order to move forward in the next few weeks when we ring in a new year.  We will never appreciate the light if there is no darkness. Embrace both because they each have something to teach us.   

Let your intuition guide you and allow the Angels to whisper in your ear, what you need to face or know now.   Take a moment to close your eyes, breath in and out until you feel you are calm and centred,  then open your eyes.  Allow your eyes to settle on a card you feel is for you. When you are happy with your choice then scroll down to view your card.

Free Angel card reading by Angela Mitchell

Now that you have chosen your card, here is the reveal and their meanings.

Free Angel card reading by Angela Mitchell

Card No 1 – The Awakening – Looking at things from a different perspective. A temporary standstill. It is important to be yourself.  

The message is to not to be disheartened by the lack of progress. You may have been starting to see things a little clearer but it takes time to implement change. So don’t expect everything to fall into place at once. Have patience and see this through. You may also be in a very “negative mode” right now which is not encouraging your progress. So if you have been feeling down and demotivated, step away for now. Time and patience will give you a fresh perspective.

Free Angel card reading by Angela Mitchell

Card No 2 –  Eight of Earth – Skilled work is rewarded. Learning all there is to know about a topic. Going back to school. 

You are being encouraged to pursue what you are passionate about however this involves retraining or acquiring a skill to enhance your understanding of a subject.  This is the time to put the seeds in your mind as you start reviewing the year that is ending and planning the year that is to come. Hard work is required and so is dedication. The only way to improve your situation is to put the work in by first expanding your knowledge and then applying it to your business or work. This will resonate strongly with those who are self employed. I feel some of you already know this but have been putting it off.

Free Angel card reading by Angela Mitchell

Card No 3 – The Dreamer – A leap of Faith. Follow your dreams. Unexpected opportunities.

Taking a leap of faith is scary and most of us fear the unknown. Sometimes we are pushed out of our comfort zones and are forced to take the leap. Other times we have to make that decision which we know we need to take in order to secure our future. This calls for a positive attitude, and a self belief that you can do it. You won’t know until you take that step but it doesn’t need to be a massive one. We have choices but often we hide behind our fear and make it bigger than it is. Take action even if it is a small one to set you on your path. You will be surprised at the doors it will open and the people it will bring to your life. Help is being sent to you but you need to be ready to receive.

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.
