Oct 31st 2020 – 2.49pm UK time
My dear ones,
This has been an exceptionally difficult week for many of us. Bad news or revelations may have been delivered. You may be dealing with a change of circumstances in your work or home life. I am not going to sugar coat it my lovelies. There is a lot of heavy energy at play which I will explain below.
The last week of October brings us the Taurus Blue Full Moon which falls on Halloween, which has roots in the pagan festival of Samhain.
Now let’s talk about the Retrogrades – Mercury (ends on Nov 3) and Mars (ends on Nov 13).
There a HUGE pause happening right now. Some not all of us will feel a little shell shocked by news delivered in the last few days. I know it can hit you emotionally but try to be practical and deal with everything in a logical way. You can deal with the emotions later.
The two big planets in Retrograde is forcing us to slow down and also not protecting us from the harsh truths. Retrogrades traditionally bring up things that aren’t working well that requires attention. These may not be things you have been trying not to face for a long time.
Mercury particularly is like that one friend no one likes who says it as it is! Comes out with it – no tact or diplomacy! It will sting and hurt but you have a choice – stay in that space or find a way out. This could be anything from a personality trait that holds you back – anger, fear, being too direct or even laziness! Or a relationship that isn’t working out. The choice is yours – stay and keep going through the motions or free yourself!
I don’t want to be all doom and gloom but the truth is that the energy tells me things will be difficult and sticky until Friday the 6th of November.
You may also need to be strong for other people. Just remember to take care of yourself!
This Full Moon will remind us of how fragile life really is and to embrace every moment.
If you feel indecisive about a certain area of your life which is making you feel very tense, then please STOP for a moment. It is your sign to stop and be in the moment. It is okay to not to have everything figured out right now. The answers and help will come to you when the time is right. Stop trying to fight against the tide.
This month’s Full Moon is a Blue Moon because it is the 2nd full moon in a calendar month. It is also a Micromoon because it is the furthest away from Earth compared to a Supermoon when its closest. Therefore the moon will appear small and not as bright as normal.
Micromoons are also supposed to be a bad omen mainly because natural disasters tend to occur. We already seen some of this as Hurricane Zeta just lashed her fury across Cancun and New Orleans yesterday. My sister lives in New Orleans so I was very worried. Luckily apart from a electricity outage, there wasn’t as much damage as expected. I do feel there will be a landslide but I can’t say if it is near America or in Asia. It keep getting drawn to both areas. Fingers crossed it doesn’t happen. I am always happy to be wrong with things like these.
For me as I tap into the energy of the Micromoon, I feel that this has to do with our own spiritual development. We have to listen to our own soul. Acknowledge the feelings deep inside that you keep ignoring? Do you need to connect to self? Are you looking for the meaning of life but not doing your inner work?
Micromoons will accentuate that state of limbo – that standstill – nothing moving feeling. Working hand in hand with the Retrograde, the Micromoon will draw things out of us, make us pause and make us look in the mirror.
Why is this important? The Full Moon is about transformation and release. The Full Moon is Universal energy that will transform the things you need to release. The timing is perfect!
How do you know it’s happening? Tears, keep thinking about a certain person or situation in the past, feeling emotional (try to dig deeper), facing difficult situations (is this a pattern? Can you change how you deal with it?) or feeling very uncomfortable.
So be ready for some tension, new truths revealed and some a little chaos.
In summary, Mercury turns direct on Nov 3rd which coincidences with the 2020 United States presidential election! My feelings have been steering me towards female energy so expect BIG changes but let’s see!
Normally the energy pushes very fast away once Mercury goes direct but because we have the big and bold energy of Mars, things will still be a tad sluggish. So don’t schedule any big events until after Nov 5/6. However, if you have to – just pay extra attention to details.
I always find things so frustrating during this time. I have had to return about three times I bought online, found faults with a product, chased after someone for a refund and got sent the wrong item! My husband thinks its funny that I had posted about the retrogrades and told people not to buy anything but spend the afternoon dealing with returns! I thought I was safe as it was small little things but nooooo !
Yes I must mention the physical symptoms of the Full Moon! I drink a lot of water daily. I drink one cup of coffee in the morning and the rest of the day is just water. However I am finding myself really really thirsty already.
Full Moons drain you both physically and mentally. I am no scientist so I won’t try to to be one. However I have read articles and books regarding how Full Moons affect our well being. There is a theory that as we have a high percentage of water, that we feel the strong rays of the Full Moon through headaches, aches and also feeling drained. This could be that if we don’t drink up enough water, our body feels the blast of the energy and makes us feel very thirsty. This in turn could result in headaches and feeling very tired.
So drink water – hydrate. Put a slice or lemon or orange in your water bottle or jug which will give you a nice vitamin boost.
Dreams will also feel a little mangled however WRITE them down! I remember one thing from my dream last night and it had a strong message about what I am dealing with right now.
Because the veil is thinning between our world and Spirit, there will be plenty of activity and visitation from Spirit. They will be able to enter your dreams easily so its worth writing whatever you remember down the moment you wake up.
It is not all bad though! Some will see new job offers or good news filtering in after a long wait. Because of the planets that are in Retrograde, I suggest being extra careful about signing any new contracts or agreements. Scrutinise the fine print and be sure to ask the right questions. Retrogrades make us extra forgetful and less careful. So don’t hesitate to grab opportunities just be careful.
Even if you receive what you feel is bad news e.g. being made redundant, you may find that there will be something good in the situation. For example, if you have worked long enough in a company, the compensation could make a difference for you to set aside for a home project, take time off, or to pay off debt, provided you work quickly to get a new job!
Full Moon Blessings! Please do your Full Moon Ritual on the 31st or the 1st of November to take full advantage of the energy. For a more detailed explanation and a “how to” read my Full Moon Ritual Guide.
