The New Moon is in Libra.
Sun in Libra opposes Uranus.
As we wake up today, we have reached the New Moon at 26° Libra. A New Moon represent the beginning of a new luna cycle and therefore a new beginning for us to work on what we want we to gain, achieve and create in our life in order to be prosperous.
This month New Moon is in Libra, you will want to plant a seed that draws in Libra energy such as harmony, relationships, love, romance, balance and fairness. Libra is represented by a set of scales which calls us to find routine, balance and justice in our life, it’s about grace and love and seeing the story from all points of view.
New Moons are great at sifting through our daily life to find out what is working and what isn’t! How can you manifest things into your life if you are holding onto clutter and are focusing your energy on what no longer serves a purpose? Sit down and really think about your day-to-day life? has something has been taking up too much of your time and energy, or you are struggling to keep on top of things or feel like you are fighting a loosing battle? This New Moon in Libra may force you to finally create some balance and make positive changes.
The New Moon is at its darkest, it is recharging and drawing in the Sun energy to begin its new cycle. It is drawing in Libra energy, as the Sun is positioned in the sign of Libra. So when you sit down today or tomorrow to write your New Moon wishes, focus on the relationships in your life, people in your life, your social life and your surface surroundings. Libra is an Air sign, its cerebral, its selfless, it seeks Justice and fairness these a great key words when you look back on what you are looking at creating or working on manifesting this month.
The desire this month is to be around people, to be social, to get out and let your hair down, to form new relationships either personal or business and to get out and create positive experiences. Libra being at 28 degrees in numerology breaks down to 8. Eight vibrates at the energy of Power. So not only will the desire to strengthen or form new relationships but a very strong desire to create powerful, lasting bonds. It motivates you to get out there and connect.
Remember, no matter what messages or inspirational motivation you get this New Moon, when it comes to Libra its energy is all about finding balance both in our inner an outer world. Whilst Libra is very social and loves seeking intellectual and situating conversations, it’s also about connecting to the beauty and peace within and creating a beautiful space to call your own.
Today, even with the New Moon in peaceful Libra, the Sun and Uranus are clashing in the skies, so some may feel anxiety or excitement. This Sun/Uranus cycle began back in April this year, this cycle is one that helps us with reaching and seeking a personal freedom. Have you felt the desire to detach from what is called ” Normal”, throwing away conventional ideas and ways of thinking, rebelling and wanting to be original? Take a moment and think back to what has been happening to you since April? How far have you come? What excitement or views of change have crossed your path in this time? Track your progress if you can, and if you are able to, determine how best to bring these issue forward or awaken them fully in your life in the coming months. Uranus is the great rebellion planet that helps us awaken our true desires, it uncovers the unexpected and it can happen very suddenly so look out for twist and turns in your day.
Happy New Moon manifesting gang!
Have a great day.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius!
On the 8th August we see a partial luna eclipse. Luna and solar eclipse are potent as their effects can last up to 6 months. The last one we experienced was in February of this year. Now this month we have two lots of eclipse here in August. How exciting!
A little background on eclipses. lunar eclipses are massive full Moons. As the Earth moves and rotates it comes between the Sun and the Moon, thus resulting in blocking the Sun’s light and a shadow being cast on the Moon. This shadow of an eclipse is not total, it is partial, so it is not fully dark. So we will only see a small portion of the moon go dark.
Full Moons are known too brings things to crisis point or a climax. With the shadow of the earth sweeping across part of this Full Moon, it can symbolize the unconscious part of our self. lunar eclipses are great for bringing to Light the hidden shadow areas of our self and our life that are not being looked at ( much to people’s dismay). What has been surfacing within you of late? have you been grumpy, snappy or moody? maybe its your soul trying to tell you something, sit in silence and listen!
Something to remember, Eclipses are not by their own nature good or bad. If you cringe at the thought of Full Moons and Eclipse bringing things to light, or things we tend to push down deep inside, maybe its time to stop twisting fate and accept what needs to be changed. Yes, they can sweep in stir things up but they also move things forward in your life! Eclipse’s can be dramatic and can be both exhilarating and scary.
It’s important to think about the signs involved too and what they represent. As we have the Sun in playful Leo and the Moon in humanity Aquarius. This Leo/Aquarius Axis like with all oppositions, gives us an opportunity, you can either focus on what divides or work together to create unity out of polarity.
The Sun is shining Leo energy down onto the Moon in Aquarius. The Sun in Leo is energised, fun, loving. It’s really fiery and playful, and now the Moon is picking up on this energy. However Aquarius is a sign that loves being of service, its humanitarian its intellect, it’s using the other side of your brain and thinking outside the box. Its forward and very future orientated.
So now this Moon will shower us here on earth with this Aquarian energy. We will feel that we need to help others, be of service, doing positive things for people. A window will be opening up and we get a chance to really help someone out, to really help others that are suffering.
Aquarius rules the realm of the collective rather than the individual (Like Leo). This eclipse will help expand your energy and think about what’s good for everyone,
So some of you may experience issues or awkwardness around fitting in or not during this eclipse. Questions can come up at this time like where do I belong? Who do i feel comfortable to team up with? However the uncertainty of fear of comparing yourself and over thinking if other people don’t get who you are, and what you are trying to achieve.
The Sun shines bright when it is in Leo, It illuminates and beams down on you like you are center stage.The Sun finds it hard to shine in Aquarius because it has to share the limelight. Leo energy is creative, energetic, passionate! This aspect of the eclipse is about finding and revealing your identity, unearthing your unique skills and talents, helping you shed old fears and encourages you to discover what makes you ‘you’.
Yes we will be showered with humanitarian energy, and creative loving Leo energy along with having an opportunity to help others and guess what this is an eclipse the effects of this will last 6 months so thank you God and the Universe for giving the world a chance to look out for others. To help others heal, we will take more care of each other, it will come naturally and without trying or forcing. How refreshing is this change!
So this Lunar Eclipse the question is, are you ready to shine bright, ready to use your positive qualities to help others, share your natural talents with the world, and make a difference?
Have you tried a Full Moon Ritual Full Moon Ritual
Happy Full Moon Day
The Full Moon happens in the sign of Capricorn this month. This months Full Moon is going to be a very beautiful, positive transformative Full Moon. This Moon has Pluto sitting right next to it and it has the potential to be life changing.
A Full Moon is when the Sun is exact opposite the Moon at 180 degrees. A Full Moon astrology speaking highlights opposing forces or polarities in our life. Areas can include our home life, work life, our needs, wants and especially our emotional needs verses what our egos want. As the lunar cycle reaches its fullest on the 09/07/2017 our emotions and insists reach their peak, ever felt a tad loony oar emotional responsive around a Full Moon? Full Moons are known to heighten sensitivity that can lead and create inner tension and external pressure that result in a crisis and can drain your energy or heighten it. However with all this new found emotional power and strength, the key is to use it, along with your intuition and the energy and traits of the Moons position in a certain star sign to overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness during this period allows for an objective and balanced look at your life and your personal relationships.
This July 9th full moon at 17°09′ Capricorn is only one degree away from Pluto. This trasnformative, healing planet of power and intensity transmutes healing and lessons through the process of destruction and renewal. As emotions are already high during a full Moon they are about to even more all powerful and somewhat all consuming this week. Can you feel the energy building already? As far as Full Moons go this one will be as powerful as they can get.
Moon conjunct Pluto brings such deep and intense feelings to the surface that they can overwhelm you. You may become obsessed about your feelings and have trouble focusing on anything else. Dreams, visions, psychic impressions or intuitive insights may have a profound influence on your mood.
Sun in Cancer opposing the Moon in Capricorn makes the Moon/ Pluto alignment more challenging.
because of the relationship tension it creates. The battles you have with other people can mirror your own inner conflict as you try to reconcile differences between what you want versus what you need.
Sun opposite Pluto brings a crisis either with self-esteem, a relationships or an event. This may be due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. In relationships, you may be the subject of, or the perpetrator of, manipulation, jealousy, domination or spying. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft, violence, or the destruction of possessions by people or natural disaster.
Full Moon occurs with the Cancer Sun in opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time—a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Cancer-Capricorn polarity concerns the balance between the private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by Cancer) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (represented by Capricorn). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn. In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.
The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between roots and direction. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is fresh, unrefined, and not particularly rational as yet.
“The Universe is not punishing you or blessing you, the Universe is responding to the vibrational attitude that you are emitting.”
Direction is more important than speed. ”Become aware of what your intention is. What your dreams are. Nurture them. The details have a tendency of manifesting at the right time.
“Abraham Hicks “
The universe can only pick up blissfulness and happiness connected with the oneness and the source! It’s connected with joy, acceptance, love and forgiveness for example. It really picks up these vibrations and speeds the process of manifesting what we want. Get rid of sorrow, fear, worry and hate.. all these negative ego based emotions confuse the universe and we delay to manifest!
To choose and bring your consciousness to a place of happiness and acceptances, of what is and what will be, Will bypass all the turmoil and grief! So let’s get on and get moving in a positive direction and get in a state of bliss!
Choose today to be happy! It’s no body else responsibility for your own happiness but you! Wake up in the morning and decide what day you will have .Be aware and conscious, don’t just go through a day for the sake of it. Choose today to begin the journey of happiness and put out to the universe what you want to manifest.
Some examples of personal mantras
Today is going to be a great day!
Work will be happy busy. It will be happy and productive.
I will accomplish everything I need to, stress free and have lots of time for me and my loved ones.
Everything is going to work out the way it needs to.
Work on manifesting small miracles in your day.. like a cup of coffee, or that boss just drives you crazy just leaves you alone to do your work peacefully. Start small, hold the thought of intent and the happiness behind it and happy manifesting!

Where intention goes energy flows!
What a powerful statement I heard last night, and this got me thinking to the life events that have unfolded before my eyes over the past six weeks! I unexpectedly apply for a home loan, got accepted within two weeks. I than had a blessing when a friends mother was selling her beach side home in my price range and now 5 weeks later I am practically an official home owner of my dream house ( finalizing the building reports and bank). I had held the intention of manifesting this so strong, even through all the bumps in the road I knew what my goal was and I kept a positive mind.. well most days, i had to ground myself in hard times but i still kept the faith. I smiled in times when i wanted to break down and cry, but my vision was clear and in the back of my head i knew ” What you think and feel you become and manifest”. My Mother said – Andy why are you stressing about circumstance and situations that have not even happened, whats the point of wasting your happiness and energy on things you have no control over. At that point i released my energy and focus was on the negative. “what if i don’t get this, have enough money, what if im declined or i don’t find home”. Her words than clicked, a huge Aha moment and i changed my thoughts and attitude and well the results were life changing for the positive. Thanks Mum, the Universe and the law of attraction!
Where intention goes energy flows!
Where intention goes energy flows. The result of what you focus and hold your energy and intention on, whether it is Bad or good is what you will manifest!
Holding an intention is powerful! hold it for as long as you can, feel the emotions and gratitude behind it, Envision it. There is a place inside of all of us where conscious expansion lives! Find it, thank it and work on and with it!
Thank your mind , tell yourself “I’m going to get results I want ” If you hold the intent long enough with purpose, emotion, compassion and gratitude and believe it so, it will be!
If there is something in your life that you want, or something you can shift or change, to expand or drop away what would it be? What might it be? Abundance, health, wealth, travel, happiness,relationships?
What vibes and intentions are you throwing up and out to the universe? What vibration are you sending? Close your eyes and take a minute! Think about it? What was the first thought or feeling that came to mind? Remember…
Where intention goes energy flows!

I bet you have heard before the saying, ” have you found your tribe yet” well in this crazy, hectic, social media filled world its hard not to want to be part of something bigger than yourself. These days there is more spiritual “tribes” and religions around that its hard to figure out what one do you feel more comfortable and connect with.
Spirituality has so many definitions and meaning to each person that one is not more important than the other, so how can you incorporate your curiosity, creativity and gain wisdom in your life? Here is a guide to increasing awareness and strengthening your relationship with yourself and the wonderful world around you.
- There is not right or wrong way to express yourself.
- Find someone who is in line with your values and that you admire. Let them guide you. Who inspires you? Who drives and motivates you to change and grow for the better? It can be someone of this time or a previous life!
- Use the Moon as a guide. Yes our ancestors before us have been using the Moon as a guide, for rituals, agriculture, manifesting and healing. The Moon controls the tides and water on earth so what makes you think it can’t rule our emotional? our body is made up of 70% water, Use the Moon phases as a guide to helping you through the month, New Moons are for manifesting, Full Moons area time for releasing that which no longer serves a purpose in our life – people, emotions, habits.
- Smudging. Burn some white sage to cleanse your home, office, anything that occupies your personal space. Sage is traditionally been used for healing, cleansing AND PURIFYING and medicinal purposes. Smudging is a great way of dispelling any bad left of energy and negative influences. it’s believed the left over smoke detox and purifies a room,home, object and person.. give it a try!
- Use your intuition instead of your logic. Ever get that ” Gut feeling” when you knew that knot in the pit of your stomach was telling you something than your brain was registering was right.. ” I just had that feeling, The bad feeling wouldn’t ease up, we have an internal compass that guides us, that feeling is the balance between the head and the heart.. start listening you will be surprised on how well it guides you.
- Start off small. If it all seems to much to begin with and nothing seems to resonate with you, take small steps at a time. New belief systems and practices can be overwhelming so take it back a step and do what feels right for you.
- Gratitude. Practicing gratitude is essential key element to a happy life. If you want to read about gratitude and the power it holds read my article here. The power of gratitude
- Complain less! There is no point wasting your time, energy and emotions on situations and circumstances you can’t change.
- Don’t think about the value of money! Stressing about money causes you to attract a negative frequency and it can weigh you down. Simplify your life, do what your heart tells you to do. You can afford a happy, fulfilling life, what brings joy to your life? rather than determining whether it will be cost-effective just do it, don’t deny yourself the pleasures of life because of some monetary detail, don’t base your happiness on a discount. If we focus on the lack in our life, or a price tag you create a barrier of resistance. Don’t make money the guiding principle for what you have or do or your soul happiness, free yourself from placing a price on everything you do and have, try to see the value on everything and not the dollar price after all the world of spirit does not have a dollar price on the actual value of something.
Just remember every moment of your life is an opportunity to start fresh, no one wins or looses as a person and you can always dance to the beat of your own drum.Take every sweet unexpected moment as blessing and enjoy life.

What is a Birth Chart in Astrology?
At the moment you are born, a frame or portrait of the skies and heaven are reflected in a birth or natal chart. The Sun, Moon and all the planets are documented where their positions are in the skies around Earth, at the moment of your birth. A birth chart reflects the exact angles and certain relations between the Planets and Earth at the time and place of your birth. A birth chart is like an Astrological blue print.
What is an Astrological blue print you ask?? Astrology well… it is the study of that which is beyond the physical. Astrology falls into the category of metaphysics, but the principles of it are, the study of Planets and their connection in relation to energy and its influence on us as humans. Astrology on individuals can be determined my a birth chart and the positions of planets when you are born and this corresponds to a basic archetype of an individual behavior, patterns, character and life.
Life is energy and Astrological birth charts can aid us by, presenting a combination of energies that affect individuals flow, function, development, and possibly a further understanding of one’s life and its cycles, this and along with outlining specific traits, strengths and weaknesses. This is all subjective to the individuals interpretation of the data and how people perceive whats in front of them, as no two people are the same.
To truly understand Astrology and how it relates to yourself and others you must understand the basics and what they represent. This includes the Zodiac signs, The Moon, the Sun, The 12 houses of the Horoscope and how planets represent a different area of our consciousness and subconsciousness.

How to create a New Moon Ritual
At each new moon , we can plant seeds for what we want to grow over the next 30 days. It can be literal “seeds” in terms of initiating new activities , meetings , joining a gym, organising importing events or enrolling in a course . Or it can be symbolic ” seeds” , be creating rituals that help to ground our intentions. Through rituals we bring alive the magic forces that help create our intentions and heart desires.
Every New moon that comes around I use it as a checkpoint for my life, an opportunity to think of my hearts desires and as a self-examination of what I want to change and improve within, and around myself. Its like I get to re write a self “to do list”, it’s a mental, emotional and spiritual clean slate.
So new moons are all about
- New beginnings
- New Adventures
- New Endeavor
- New relationships
- Positive changes
- Optimism Hope and Faith
The New Moon is the perfect time to manifest what you wish to have in your life. It is a wonderful time to introduce new beginnings, projects and desires you wish for.
Setting your New Moon Intentions in Motion
I always begin by setting aside some time by myself at night, as its best done closer to when the moon’s power is full force. Don’t stress if this is not an option… you can also do this in the morning, take yourself on a coffee date before work (I swear its written in a scared journal that this ritual is best done with the magic power of a coffee and melting moment cookie and if not I think it’s a new tradition that ill be passing on to anyone that will believe me).
Supplies you Need:
- Pen and coloured felt tip pens (For doodling and drawing magic unicorns and your new dream swim wear)
- Your imagination
Optional supplies (That you would find at my New moon ritual)
- Yummy scented Candle or incense burner, with lavender or peppermint to awaken the third eye and crown chakra,
- Meditation music or relaxing sounds to help block out outside noise and help you unwind and refocus your energy to the task at hand. Or if silence or rock music is what helps you focus, than by all means I have created some very amazing wishes and intentions with Led Zeppelin playing in the background
- Hot chocolate for brain fuel (Because the brain can not store energy, it needs a continuous supply of fuel. As our brains consume 60 percent, or about 450 calories each day of the sugar coursing through our bloodstreams, that’s a justifiable couple of hot chocolates and a candy bar worth of energy)
Traditional ritual Supplies for the old school folks:
- smudge sticks (Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, a sage smudging)
- meditation music
- Crystal grid and/or alter with objects you find sacred or embody physically the goals you would like to achieve.
Here we go….
- Light one or more candles, maybe create a crystal grid and/or alter with objects you find sacred, or embody physically the goals you would like to achieve like a picture of your camera to help you master photography, a clip of a place you want to visit, a picture of the body you want to achieve ( through the intention of ercercise and diet trudst me there isnt a magic sure for weightloss).
- Center your being and calm yourself in whatever way is appropriate for you. Take some deep cleansing breaths, turn on your meditation music to listen to, and/or leisurely sip on a cup of relaxing hot chocolate or herbal tea.
- Relax, take it slow and let the wish and intentions flow
- write in detail on what you would like to manifest ( it makes it easier to feel like you already have this when you can see it unfolding in your head in detail.)
- Once you have finished writing your list, i what you want to manifest in your life remember that its very important to feel like these items are already yours, feel the emotion behind having them.. Happiness , joy, gratitude, motivated, empowerment, hope and love.
- It is essential that you keep your thoughts positive as this rises your vibrations. The universe responds to your vibrations like a magnet so happy, pleasant positive emotions carry high vibrations, so the universe will respond by giving you high vibrations gifts in return. Say if you want to attract wealth ,you think positive thoughts about money ( even if you don’t have much) and you focus on what you have not on what you don’t have. Same if you constantly give off low vibrations such as anger, impatience, worry, insecurity, blame and any other negative thinking you will attract situations and people that reflect those vibrations, for example when something doesn’t work out and get mad and state ” nothing good every happens to me, or im always the one who gets picked last, no one cares about me, im always get walked over by people, i hate the world” Emotional statements these (especially when you are mad, because you have so much powerful emotion behind saying them) tells the universe thats what yo want and that what you expect so it matches your vibrations. Understand?
- Now this part is important, once you have set your new moon intentions and read over them, you must not over think or stress how they will come to you, no demanding ” why haven’t’ i got my new bike yet”, you need to trust the universe divine timing , if its meant to be it will be, and if you don’t get what you wished for, maybe it was not the right time for you to have it, I know it took me a few months of wishing for a new bike before one day i got to work and my boss had this cute white bicycle sitting in my office , he said he just bought it for his wife and she went for one rife on it and didn’t like cycling and he thought the bike suited me and how much i would enjoy cycling to work instead of waling each day….
- When you do get to experience that magical feeling of crossing off an item off your list don’ forget to thank the universe for bringing it to you, after all the power of gratitude excels your power of manifestation
By Andy Jackman x
It should be noted, to keep in mind that our words and thoughts are vibrations, wether our words or thoughts are created subconsciously in positive or negative manor, so any intentions imagined, stated or written down carry power. So take care to really manifest exactly what you would like, by feeling that vibration. The saying “Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.” rings true here. And remember.. you are not to manifest anything regarding the free will of another person. So you can’t ask the universe to bring you a certain person, as the another person is involved has their own intentions you cannot control what he/she will do, and you cannot ask the universe to force someone to feel or act a certain way about you. So no trying to ask the universe to make Zac Effron to fall madly in love with you…. SIGH

Full Moon in Scorpio 2016
I can promise you, this moon will be a big one. ..
This month we will experience a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio on April 22, 2016. This supercharged Full Moon will amplify our desires. Scorpio is a passionate sign, in everything it touches, self, relationships, work and play and this energy sets the stage for meaningful personal transformation this Full Moon.
Scorpio’s are intense and feel things deeply. So prepare for a Full Moon of extremes. Full Moons often leave us supercharged, some of us have intense dreams, some of us can’t sleep at all, some may have extra energy or become flat, and if you are anything like me you become super sensitive in more ways than one…Even if you don’t follow astrology one can’t deny that energy is charged up and you at one point in your life you have felt different when a Full Moon approaches.
The passionate, dramatic intense waters of Scorpio seem to be in direct opposition to our practical drive to survive this Full Moon and this can cause tension between our inner and outer worlds, causing some of us to reach a breaking point. Have you felt the pull and push of late?
Full Moons are like axis that balance’s the energy between the Moon and the Sun, the balance of the yin and the yang, our job during this period is find a balance whilst everything is at it’s fullest extreme. Trying to juggle these cosmically opposed forces and find a balance of our receptive and the expressive self.
The Sun is in Taurus during this Moon phase and will act as an anchor this week to help hold us to our current path without getting to lost in the paradigms of Venus romantic influence who is dancing alongside wild Uranus. These comic influences will strike a chord in our personal desires as our personal relationships become an experimental playing field as this Scorpion Full Moon bring up desires of strong intense desires, emotional and sexual running deep in our conscious.
The Moon is where our feelings live and when the Moon is full, feelings and energy can be at their peak. Be cautious of emotional discontentment, as this is a time where past feelings can stir and rise up, so fight the urges to be moody, snappy, suspicious and secretive. By giving into these negative emotions can block your very heightened creative energy, so just stop.. breath.. and don’t feed the negative emotions any more fuel!! Happy, powerful creative thinking is what needs to be practiced during this Full Moon.
This Moon will propel us forward in delving into the deep mysteries of our hearts and will also allow us to follow our heart with decisive action. This Full Moon the Universe is waking us up to our deepest, highest desires, it will also give us a nudge and the potential to achieve our desires and the courage to go after them. Scorpio’s don’t just settle, they go big or not at all, so this Moon is challenging each and every one of us to Go Big.
Full Moons are a time that bring closure to matters, big and small. During this moon, it is time to stop talking and start doing, we need to rely on our actions to say what needs to be said. The Full moon in Scorpio’s energy will shine a light onto anything hidden, on parts of us that we choose to lock away and ignore the most, parts of our self we never act on or heal, sometimes so much so that it’s time to stop the doubting self – talk and start the doing, start healing.
Death and rebirth is the theme of the week (Not in a physical sense). We cannot receive the new in our life until we purge the old, old pattern’s and emotions that no longer serve you along with releasing old energy, send it all to the light for transmutation. It is good for focusing and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires Scorpio brings.
There is great energy this month to complete things that may not of received your full attention last month. Maybe you felt to scattered or the energy did not feel right at the time?! the good news is.. you will have the means and strength to focus on these certain areas and complete what needs to be done.
~ So this Full Moon ~
It’s truly a time to go big or not at all!
Don’t give into the tension, and there is no mistake there will be tension, internal and externally!
It’s time to step outside your comfort zone, Be Courageous!!
You are being asked to feel this Moon, instead of thinking, and to ACT instead of think.
Forge ahead as this Full Moon you will have a very strong sense of purpose.
Solving mysteries and getting to the root of the issue!
Death and Rebirth, Purge the old and make way for the New!!
Purging intense emotional matters that no longer serve you, such as obsession, shame or guilt.
Intensity, extremes, physic awareness and a heightened sensitivity.

As the New Moon approaches us have you ever sat and wondered what people are talking about when they mention the “New Moon” and no it’s not a book in the Twilight series I am talking about.
The “New Moon” is the start of the lunar cycle. The new lunar cycle occurs approximately once every 29 days. This is a time when the Moon, Sun and Earth, Moon are roughly positioned in a line, with the Moon sitting between the Earth and the Sun. This is why you can’t see the moon hovering in the night sky. This is often referred to ( and not just by Pink Floyd) as the dark side of the moon.
This “Dark moon” in many cultures such as the Hebrew and Chinese, represents the start of the calendar month. The first day of the new moon is considered to be the finest day to begin undertaking any new project or task or in many belief systems it is the time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in your life. Making a wish, a promise or to set an intention is a common practice. It is believed that as the moon grows, that your goal or intention will too …
We are still in that 48 hour time zone where New Moon wishes and intentions can create abundance. Make those wishes count. When you harness the energy with the power of pure intention, the universe is ready to manifest miracles. A great moon mantra to use to raise your vibrations and create positive mind set is “I see the New Moon and the New Moon sees me, I wish for abundance to come to me.” and Feel and imagine like what you intend on manifesting or wishes for as already yours..
Remember the Law Of Attraction states you attract what you think and feel. So the question is… Do you believe in magic ?

The Sun in Sagittarius.
As the Sun moves into Sadge, it shifts our conscious self and ego from the element of water to fire, we turn from searching inwards to more outer retrospect!. The Sun remains Sagittarius in this sign until December 21st, 2017. The Sun represents our inner desires, our conscious thoughts and the power of desire. Therefore, when the Sun is in Sagittarius, it is naturally going to feel empowered, lighter, knowledgeable and adventurous. The desire to reach out to the world and connect with something bigger than ourselves will be a high priority this month.
Key things to remember when the Sun enters Sagittarius. Sagittarius is an optimist sign that loves to dreams BIG!!! This month draw on this energy. Sagittarius is not afraid to aim high, even if the dream is huge they’re just crazy enough to believe it can happen. When the Sun is in Sadge we are naturally drawn to philosophy and spiritual or religious beliefs, questioning life. Expand your learning and understanding of the world around you, read a book, take a course or if this means booking a trip overseas to reach this heightened element that do so.
The Sun in sadge starts off the silly season where we want to have fun, live it up and enjoy life! When the Sun is in Sagittarius we tend to consciously be working toward a broader, positive and healthier mindset. We gain more self-confidence, we seek for a reason to smile and to laugh. This is a star sign that likes to travel, explore, learn and expand. It also likes larger than life experiences. Being tied down to a social way of thinking and broad set rules annoys Sagittarius, so don’t be surprised if you search for a higher meaning to life this month! We want to experience life as a truly exciting, enlightening journey.
However, the less favorable traits of this optimistic sign are they impatient. Sadge wants everything done yesterday, fast pace and NOW! If you can’t have things the way you want them at that moment in time you will feel frustrated, get cranky and snap! Sagittarius can also be.. well somewhat honest and very straightforward, too honest to the point of being ruthless. Watch out if you find yourself being to blunt as honesty isn’t always the breath of fresh air everyone wants to hear… Find your balance this party and festival season and make sure your convictions of being direct are coming from a place of love not negativity.
This month we will find ourselves becoming enthusiastic about life. We see the light and start feeling optimistic about the future. Draw upon the energy of Sagittarius, as they see no point in dwelling over their misfortunes, the past, missed opportunities and instead focus on playing to your own strengths and creating your dream future. This month plan your ultimate travel trip and adventures, look forward to a future with more fun an smiles, expanding your knowledge, and expect lots of laughter.

The Sun enters Sagittarius.
The Moon enters Capricorn.
Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.
The big news today comes when the Sun, following her haul through the deep, mysterious and passionate waters of Scorpio, now enters fun-loving, adventurous Sagittarius! Shifting the conscious self and our ego from water to fire, introspection to outer focus, from emotional to explorative. Over the coming month, we have an inner calling to be spontaneous, to reach out to understand and see the bigger picture, we want to explore and to see the perspective of others.
The emotional environment of today day turns a little more serious as the Moon enters hard-working and realistic Capricorn. When the Moon is in Capricorn we shift to more of a grounded practical energy. Hard work and facts become a priority today no time for funny business!!
Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. This cycle which begun back in November 2016, think back to this time? What profoundly transforming shifts in regards to love relationships, personal values, deeper levels of intimacy and truth have been realized and explored? When the planet of beauty and love aligns and joins forces with the planet of transformation, their energies are exacerbated, this energy equals passion, intensity, depth and abundance! Since November 2016, the cycle between Venus and Pluto has proceeded forward as the energy between these two grew, it came to full fruition in August of this year and now we come to a closing sextile aspect between them.
A new cycle between these powerful forces will be activated in early January of 2018, offering us an opportunity to activity plan for the new cycle! What new level of love relationships do you want to reach? Where do you plan to create more beauty and love in your life? What values or morals do you want to strengthen what do you want to ultimately transform your future? Begin now to plan for the future you dream of. This sextile also empowers and extends the cycle between Jupiter and Venus that began last week.
However it is important to remember that not only does Venus/Pluto astrologicaly speaking, is great for deepening into intimacy with your self and others, it can also have a darker side… so please be mindful and watch out for jealously, possessiveness, and the desire to be in control or ultimately give away your power in Love and money situations.
We are still in the Scorpio New Moon phase!! There is still time to make your manifestation wish list if you haven’t already done so.

The New Moon in Scorpio.
What a profoundly intense Scorpio New Moon that occurred exact at 6:43 AM EST on 18/11/17.. New Moons represent a new Lunar cycle and the end of one 28 day lunar cycle. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are at the same 180 degree of the same sign of the zodiac. This month the New Moon is sitting in the highly emotional fixed water sign of Scorpio, and thus the Sun and Moon are recharging and absorbing in its energy. Traditionally the New Moon is the best time to begin something new, to plant seeds of intention, to make a fresh start, and begin a new plan or project. It’s about manifesting our desires!!!
When the Moon is in Scorpio, it is a time to draw in a focus on the positive traits of this star sign. This means passion, romance, depth, perspective, intense sexual energy, building up or creating in-depth personal relationships, transformation and emotional healing. Scorpio’s are very resourceful, stubborn and very probing… Especially when it is in regards to digging deep and uncovering truths no matter how taboo, dark or hidden they may seem to be. This New Moon cycle is also an opportunity to be creative and commit to personal goals, especially in regards to all the positive traits and energies I have just talk about that represent Scorpio.
The energy of the New Moon in Scorpio will be very sexy.. Focus this New Moon on getting sexy, feeling sensual, being happy in your own skin as well as feeling romantic and passionate. Scorpio’s are NOT afraid of having unguarded moments and embracing its dark side. Work with this is you feel you need a boost in this department. Scorpio’s also teach us that “quality over quantity” and “dedication” to one meaningful relationship is more significant and more satisfying than spreading ourselves around.
This New lunar cycle will help us focus on empowerment, transformation, death and rebirth, as Scorpio is ruled by Pluto who rules these key areas in life! This New Moon is a time to turn within, to look deep within, to find out what is no longer working for us emotionally, mentally and physically and transmute it for transformation. As you prepare this new beginning at the New Moon, it is a perfect time to release whatever you must in order to make room for deep new personal growth. It is a time to purge, release and let go and make way for wonderful new things to enter your life. It a time to really honor yourself and the journey you have been on this year! This New Moon forms a trine with Chiron and quincunx Uranus! What no better that for activating healing and awakening! This New Moon Consider what you need to leave behind as you plant seeds of intention and planet a seed for profound deep understanding and growth.
As I mentioned, this New Moon in Scorpio is all about ridding yourself of emotional baggage and any old grudges!!! We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions, debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. These lower frequencies and energies are destructive, toxic and plain old nasty! Scorpio energy helps teach us to face up to them for what they are, at face value, to heal and grow. These are just a few things you can incorporate into your New Moon intentions this month.
This month we will find the energy that we need to find inner strength and to face our Shadows and secrets. We will learn to grow and develop, especially so if you know what house in your birth chart holds 26° Scorpio! This month shine light on the darkness! Find balance between shadow and Light and glow!
This month channel Scorpio’s energy into your New Moon intentions. Don’t neglect your new moon ritual, Here is a link for those who are new to the practice. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what transformational changes you wish to begin or see within yourself, what you wish create, or increase in the upcoming lunar cycle. The energy will be very strong this weekend and some what overwhelming for some so you can wait and perform your New Moon ritual on Sunday or Monday.
Happy New Moon in Scorpio!

The Moon is in Libra.
The Moon in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires.
Uranus in Aires squares Pluto in Capricorn.
The Moon is in peaceful Libra.Libra encouraging us to find ways to be peaceful, co-operative and harmonize well with others as well as yourself. Keep in mind that self-care must be your top priority.
The Moon in Libra opposes Uranus in Aires. Uranus is the planet that represents rebellion as well as doing and seeing things in an unconventional ways. Uranus sitting in the male archetype sign of Aires, its energy is very strong, it’s very ” Me Me Me’ and im going to do something amazing, a powerhouse to move obstacles. So whats holding you back from manifesting your dreams? What drive is lacking to achieve what you want?
Uranus in Aires squares Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto represents change, transformation and when it’s in this earth sign of Capricorn this change is about practicality and work.Today these energies will help us to get insights or ideas as to transform our life in regards to becoming more practical, bringing about practicality in our daily life and especially in regards to our work life! Today the types of question you may have for energies like this is.. How do I move houses? How do I work on getting my dream job? How can get more organised at work so I have more time for fun? How can I achieve my goals?
However, it’s also important to remember these energies can also make us feel like we are on the defense, challenged by power dynamics, uncomfortable in decision-making, to hot-headed to see the reality of situations that are unfolding in front of us. Uranus is great at unpredictable and unexpected events occurring! GO with the flow of the Libra Moon energy, find harmony and balance in your day and try to see the beauty all around you!
Happy Hump Day!

The Moon is in Libra.
Venus in Scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde Chiron in Pisces.
The Moon spends her day in charming, harmonious and refined Libra throughout the day. What no better atmosphere than when you long for time with friends, loving relationships, as well as being social and light-hearted. We will find that today we are seeking out a just and fair balance of energy between our self and others. Seeking the beauty in our surroundings and focused on love and all things related to relationships! However, its important to remember to not to allow yourself to be pulled in a direction that is not right for you and if you find it difficult to make a decision today, just be still and think what actions best serve your highest good. Libra is a very indecisive sign and hates making rash, quick decisions.
This afternoon Venus in Scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde Chiron in Pisces. This minor challenging aspect will cause some tension between the planet of love and beauty and the Wounded healer. We may be asked today to stop and ask yourself how do you really feel? Stock take your emotions and really feel whatever comes up for you. If you can work with this energy wisely, heart healing is possible. If you resist those things that surface for you today, you can have a very hard time letting go of those emotions, fears and energies that no longer serve a purpose in your life. Its time to release old patterns , intimacy blocks and old wounds that trigger pain!

The Moon is in Leo.
The Last Quarter Moon in Leo forms a square with the Sun in Scorpio.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.
Happy Friday!! This morning has a great positive and fun energy to it. I think you can anticipate a pleasant morning to be honest. If you can get up early enough go for a coffee with a friend before work. Get excited for the weekend that is approaching.
However to burst the fun positive bubble, I must mention that this afternoon with the Sun/ Moon square energy come swirling by it may damper the good feels. The Last Quarter Moon in Leo forms a square with the Sun in Scorpio. This energy could leave us feeling like we are in a slump this afternoon. Conflict may also be felt by your self and others. The Sun is in private, intense and secretly Scorpio and the Moon is in playful, adventurous and social Leo. This can cause conflict with us internally and externally, we may get stuck on conflicts, problems, issues, at home, work or relationships, especially on how we should deal with them and how to move forward. Allow any stress to pass by, observe it, acknowledging its reason why it may surface BUT without reacting to any difficult interactions that may occur within yourself and with others. The Sun/Moon transit will move quickly by this afternoon so don’t let it captivate you or engage you.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Jupiter in Scorpio. This nice harmonious alignment between the planet of luck and abundance and the planet of communication and intellectual simulation. Today is a great day to plan a trip or adventure for the weekend, it’s about expanding our knowledge of wealth, fun, socializing, dinner parties , writing, creating, eye-opening experience and interesting conversations. However be cautious as we all know when Mercury is in Sagittarius we can come across as know it all, haughtiness and self-absorbed.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

The Sun in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.
The Moon enters Leo.
The Moon leaves emotional, intuitive Cancer behind and enters exuberant, playful Leo. This will shift from experiencing emotional and sensitive as well as self work of looking inwards to being more open, center of attention and excitable. Its time to become center stage, if you need a boost of courage and an ego stoke today is a great day to channel the Leo energy. A Leo Moon Day is a great place to start if you need to do something and lack the confidence. Today is your best chance to put your best foot forward and show the world how amazing and serious you can be as well as fun and innovative! The Leo Moon is also very creative and artistic. It’s a day to show the world ‘what you’ve got’. However, Leo tends to take all the spot lights on the stage, so don’t let your brightness over shine everyone! Give everyone a fair chance and don’t come off to egotistical.
Another early morning event will occur when the passionate Scorpio Sun forms a sextile aspect to transformative, catalytic Pluto. The cycle of empowerment or destruction between Pluto and the Sun began on January 7, 2017.
We should at this time start preparing and beginning a plan for 2018! This new cycle will bring about a time of releasement of the past, what has gone wrong or not working out this year for you? Consider what needs to be released and to begin to plan for the new cycle ahead a more happy, positive and fulling year. I can say my Ups equally measure my downs this year, and I know they are creating some tension and fear, i am forgetting all that I have achieved this year. Begin to envision your personal intentions and strategies for 2018!
Feeling a little stuck, or uncertain to where or want you want to achieve, get in touch with your emotional and spiritual or emotional that many of us we may overlook. Scorpio makes us feel stronger and we can really enjoy the empowered feeling that can come from making changes and future improvements to our life.
The Sun/Pluto sexitle today has a deep energy, its intense and very passionate. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto so it’s a double whammy and great at unlocking those buried confronting powers to make us hold onto fears, doubts and insecurities locked up! But Pluto is ready to have these brought to the surface, healed and swept away! The effort you put in today at self realisation and the acknowledgment of your own faults, flaws, insecurities or less favored emotions and traits the more you will be rewarded, you are fully supported by the universe! Let it be gone there is no room for negative vibes, energy and emotions.

Wednesday 8th November, 2017!
The Moon in Cancer trines the Sun in Scorpio.
The Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces.

The Sun is in water, the Moon is in Water and to top this off the Sun trines Neptune in Pisces, more water energy!! Today is a great day for all those initiatives out there or anyone who wants to work on their intuition and creativity.

The Moon enters Cancer.
Venus enters Scorpio.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisquares Pluto in Capricorn
The Moon enters nurturing, sensitive Cancer today. This will allow our general state of our emotions turn inwards. We seek comfort, familiarity, we want to nest at home and be around family and loved ones. Make your partner or best friend a home cooked meal , re arrange your home or get out and bath under the Moon tonight as Cancer is ruled by the Moon and feels at ease in her presence.
Venus enters Scorpio today, where it will transit until December 1st. Venus, the planet of love, beauty and deep personal values, enters the powerful water sign of Scorpio. Deeply passionate and determinant in relationships is the focus when Venus is in Scorpio. Venus in Scorpio can be great for intimacy, sexuality, intense interactions and taboo fantasies. Its energy and purpose is very transformational and we really want to make strong bonds and deep connections with others, Venus in Scorpio is not about a quick fling!!! When Venus is in this highly intense sign its very emotional and passionate. We look for pleasures, new passions, interests and projects. However lets not forget the shadow side of Venus in Scorpio, jealously, possessiveness and becoming very controlling. Some may also allow relationships to consume them in very unhealthy ways.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisquares Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect can cause disruption and friction between the way we think and communicate and the planet of transformation, death and rebirth. Capricorn is determined and in Pluto it will try to dig deep, it wants to discoverer any and all truths, even if they are nasty, ugly and raw. Pluto in Capricorn has to get to the bottom truth of any matter. Mercury, however sometimes prefers to just skim over the surface and see truths from a more positive side. Today try to really watch how you speak and interact with others, also watch your thoughts! Take all gathered information in and choose to see things from a more positive aspect. Remember changing one negative thought to a positive thought causes a ripple effect in your life in such a positive way!
