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

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.

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. 

April’s Pink Full Moon in Scorpio –

April’s Pink Full Moon in Scorpio –

Tomorrow’s Pink Full Moon is in Scorpio which feels like a very deep cleansing and transformative time for all of us. The cycle from the last New Moon amplified by the potent energy of the Mercury Retrograde was crazy to say the least. Vivid almost prophetic dreams, emotional and many of us were blindsided by unexpected issues.

I won’t be surprised if you have had dreams that involves water the sign of communication but also emotions. Our emotions affect how we communicate or interpret messages from and to people. Our communication can also impact on our emotions therefore these are the themes you have to work with the next three months.

Try to listen more, to see the body language, resist from being too sharp with your words and don’t take things to heart if the delivery of a message is hurtful. Look past it and listen to what is being said not how. This will benefit you in the long run.

Full Moons are great at filtering out the clutter out of our lives and forces us to face the “let go” aspects of our personality, habits or even relationships. For example if someone you have always tolerated but kept at arm’s length starts featuring in your life a week or two before a Full Moon things get a little heated, then know it’s for the best. You will be given a choice – tolerate this person and maybe see how they have changed, and how this relationship has evolved OR you may just lose patience and this person will leave your life, slamming the door behind them. You will obviously feel angry and uncomfortable with this at first, but trust that this had to happen.

During a Scorpio Full Moon, it will “sting” at first but then things will get better. So keep a watch on things you have had to deal with a week before and the week after the full moon. Be open to change and transformation. The less resistance you give the universe at this time, the less painful it will be. The more you fight it, the harder it will be.  Surrender and breathe!

The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.

What does this mean for us? A full moon in Scorpio is formative for the next five months of this year. What you do this time with this energy can either be a great boost or a step backwards. Like Scorpios where things are serious, concrete and black & white, you will need to face up to things and deal with it, no fluffing around, no more excuses.

The energy wants to get to the core of problems, tear away the plaster and fix things. You can also be led into temptation – to spend more, to feel invincible or led by your ego to the point of being silly.

Learn to cut your cords with people who create drama in your life or keep leading you to self-destruct. The ones who know how to trigger you to react but stand back in the shadows while you get the blame. Open your eyes and ears because this full moon is a very personal one.

Like a scorpion, you will see something big end in your life. It could be the end of a marriage, a pregnancy or a job. We may feel it’s the end of the world because all of this means a lot to us. Just like the scorpion that is able to regenerate its own tail after its injured or fallen off, there is hope for a new opportunity. Please don’t be disheartened and keep the faith because there is a new day approaching.

You will find that many of the themes popping up in your dreams is actually emotions or day to day things that have been under the surface which you have been unwilling to face. It has to be acknowledged and cleared at some point. You have underlying stress and physical pain relating to this so please release them now and you will feel better.

The “pink” full moon encourages us to love in all its forms, starting with yourself. Fall in love with yourself and be in love.

Some of us will be facing health issues. Self-care is very important and you are being forced to look after yourselves and get to the source of the problems. If you have been self-medicating or have “tried” to cure yourself naturally then please understand that this is masking the problem. My grandmother was a medicine woman and her knowledge came from generations of herbalist and Ayurvedic experts in India. My mother always had a herb or food that helped with sickness but we knew when it was time for modern medicine. There are things that alternative medicines can help with and other more serious things that need an MRI or an operation to solve. If you have been in denial then please look into this now before things get serious.

We are also being pushed to look after our emotional health. Self-care is about your physical body but also your emotional layer. Be kind to yourself and be in love with yourself. Give yourself some time to process things before jumping into action, take time off for yourself and don’t be so hard on yourself.

How to take advantage of tomorrow’s Blue Full Moon Energy

How to take advantage of tomorrow’s Blue Full Moon Energy

*** RARE & INTENSE LUNAR ACTIVITY ***
The energy has been raw and intense these last two weeks due to the Mercury Retrograde which started on March 22nd and ends on April 15th.
 
Retrograde period is generally not a good idea to start anything new. For most of us, it is a time lay low and keep your thoughts to yourself. Communication and electrical issues are common so buying new things or trying to get people to respond to you will be a painful experience.
 
When Mercury is in Retrograde, the energy is conducive for planning and adopting a “hermit” approach. Anything else will result in a frustrating experience as things tend to go wrong. Plan now and be ready to take action after April 15th because things will move rather quickly by then. So you want to be prepared.
 
Many of us feel very nervous, extremely hot in our bodies, dehydrated and issues may crop up for you to deal with. This is the universe asking you to deal with health issues head on before it turns into a big problem.
 
I had a niggly tooth issue and I have been trying not to go to the dentist. Then i woke up the other day with pounding head and tooth. I just knew that if I didn’t go see the dentist, there would be an expensive and not to mention painful outcome. Luckily they spotted an early abscess which is now being controlled by antibiotics.
 
So if you have something that has been bothering you, please don’t self medicate, this is cropping up for a reason. Go see your doctor.
 
We as humans try to sweep things under the carpet but the Universe knows best and will show us the signs to take care of ourselves.
 
The reason for the physical symptoms I described above is that there is a huge amount of energy and activity astrologically speaking. This is intensified by the fact that we have a full moon tomorrow and its the 2nd BLUE FULL MOON of 2018.
 
Why is this special? The last time we had two Blue Moons in a year was 1999 and it won’t happen again until 2037! The energy has been building up since Jan 31st Full Moon.
 
The energy is intense and some raw feelings have been surfacing for us to deal with, mostly bringing up emotions for us to deal with, leaving us feeling frustrated, exposed and vulnerable.
 
March has also felt very sluggish and dense. January to February felt very fast and we were almost breathless trying to catch up. We are being slowed down for a reason. Time to take a breath, look after our health and review our journey.
 
March being the 3rd month of the year, represents balance – MIND, BODY and SOUL. If you have been neglecting any of the three then you will be slowed down to review your life path. We need a harmony within our body, mind, and soul to be happy.
 
March’s full moon is in Libra which again, is about BALANCE and justice. If you have been feeling unsure about yourself lately then this full moon will help re-align you to your roots.
 
Remember, the Full Moon is here to help you let go of what no longer serves you to make space for new and better things.  
Don’t forget to take advantage of this amazing energy day by doing my Full Moon Ritual before April 1st 2018.
