~~New Moon in Taurus ~~
~~Uranus eneters Taurus ~~
Today we have a New Moon in Taurus. This New Moon is highly significant as it shares the same day we see Uranus enter Taurus. We can expect some power shifts happening, so its best not to underestimate its abilities to wake and shake up some new expected energies and change in your life. This has the ability to also move your life in a new direction and this is to do with Uranus the planet of disruption, change, and revolution mixing in with New Moon Luna energy of new beginnings and manifestation.
With all this Taurus energy entering into our lives, it’s a great time to look at your natal chart to see what house in your chart holds Taurus? This will be the area of your life that is being highlighted for you and is demanding change. Allow yourself to be moved, address any issues and don’t try to avoid the profound shifts that will inevitably be in the making in the coming months.
The New Moon is at 24’36 Taurus. This commences a new lunar cycle. A New moon is represent in our sky as complete darkness, it’s when the Sun and Moon are aligned, and the Sun and Earth are on opposite sides of the Moon. This is a time where the Moon recharges itself for the next lunar cycle, and this Month its recharging with Taurus energy. This New Moon will focus on the earth, nurturing, sensuality, money, beauty and embodiment. Taurus is the first Earth sign and is ruled by Venus, so it is not just focused on material stability and reality, but also on love, abundance, sensuality and pleasure. Taurus is loyal and loves the simple (and finer) pleasures such as good food, good wine, fine arts and music but Taurus also loves any activity that brings them closer to nature and brings us in touch with our body!
The Sun joins the New Moon at 24 degrees Taurus. More earthy Taurus energy! Don’t forget its time to do your New Moon rituals. Plant seeds of intentions or manifestations you wish to see fruit over the next month! You can even wait a day or two if you need to reflect on what you need to bring forth into your life! Keep your ritual simple But do not neglect your New Moon Ritual.
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to create, manifest, begin or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle. Being the New Moon in Taurus the intention you should set will focus on incorporating Taurus energy into your intentions. The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seeds or intentions of patience, loyalty, sensuality, beauty, dependability, finances and being ground. Take advantage of the New Moon and Uranus in Taurus, by planting a seed or dream that will support the changes you want to see in any areas of your life. This is a good Luna cycle to discover what truly makes us happy and fulfilled also its a cycle in which we should try to re-evaluate our relationship to money and possessions.
Taurus, like I have mentioned likes security and stability but can hold onto to the past even when it is stagnant, old, toxic leaving them felling “stuck”. The Uranus energy we are experiencing, well unfortunately for those stubborn Bulls is all about change! Uranus is all about unexpected change, change in our daily lives and its structure, it’s very revolutionary. It will test our basic foundations and just when we feel secure it throws a curve ball you catch mid-air unexpectedly. Uranus loves disruption in order for us to break away from old stagnant patterns. This shift is here for us yo evolve, the old to die and be transformed. Uranus moves signs every 7 years and we are shifting from fire to earth energy of the great awakener and rebel!
Uranus in Taurus is an interesting transit to say at least, as Taurus is a sign that resist change and needs consistency, security and stability and well Uranus nature is one of big change. The changes we can see when you throw the sign of material gains and the great revolutionar you can expect to see big change to your abundance, your finances, and our precious values and everything we dearly hold onto!
Alternately, Over the next 7 years it will be a great time for us to let go of what we hold onto out of safety and security that does not serve us in order to make room for our new-found abundance and wealth. let go over the power that money may hold over you, and power plays in regards to addiction, spending, food, alcohol and let go of the thought that you need material objects to make you happy and secure.
Maintaining stability in the face of the all these big shifts that Uranus is bringing is key, Lucky for us Taurus is very grounded but it is also very stubborn, which means it also has a problem with resisting change as it seeks security and a safety net. So please, become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure, just so you can use that grounding and confidence to make changes in other areas of your life that may not feel so stable and that could really use some change. It’s a time to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure and use its as a starting point for succesful change!
Even as Uranus is pushing for something shockingly new. It’s a beautiful time to commit to your personal goals and dreams, especially those that express the positive energies of the sign of the mighty Bull. With everything that is going on cosmically, don’t forget to enjoy this time. It’s a time to enjoy life’s physical and simple pleasures! Make a romantic dinner with loved ones, go on a romantic holiday with a partner, enjoy a good book, savor good food, get out and ground yourself in nature and enjoy those activities that bring you back in touch with nature.
Think big this New Moon as the change available is not a minor one!
Happy New Moon Day

Blue Blood Moon in Leo 31/01/2018
Syndey, February 1, 12.26am.
New York, January 31, 8.26am.
London, January 31, 1.26pm.
On January 31st, a Blue Blood Moon will be happening in the sign of Leo.This month we see our second Full Moon in the sign of Leo. This inst just any old Full Moon, it is a Blue Moon and a Blood Moon. Blue Moon is a name given to the second Full Moon of the month. This second Full Moon we see in the month of January is really rare, as you may have heard the saying before” Once in a blue Moon”. It’s also a Super Moon and will be very exceptional. Super Moon’s are closer to the earth and thus appear 14 per cent larger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than usual. Because of the Moon’s closeness to earth, the impact of the Full Moon energies will be stronger and a lot more powerful than normal. This includes the oceans tide so watch out for the big surf coming your way!
Typically there are only three Full Moons in every season, one each month. However, once in a “Blue Moon” happens every couple of years or so, that means we get a bonus Full Moon! This Blood Blue Moon will also be a total Lunar eclipse just to add more excitement to the mix. Blood Moon is a term used to describe a total Lunar eclipse. This eclipse is the first of three Blood Moon’s that will occur between 2018-2019.
The last time we seen all three of these events occur in the sky (Lunar eclipse, Supermoon and Blue Moon) was in March, 1866. The term “Blue Moon” is paved with mystery folklore and magic. The name ” Blue Moon’ with its mystery and beauty has even been written about in Shakespeare plays over 400 years ago.
Full Moons astrological are when the Sun and the Moon are both opposing one and other at 180 degrees. The Sun is shining all of its light to illuminate the Moon, and signifies to us that it this is a huge shift of perspective. It’s about completion of a cycle and its about being illuminated and reaching a completion point and shedding old energy.
This Full Moon being in the fire sign of Leo, means that this month we are being showered with Leo energy. Leo is about being a leader, being creative, having confidence,pursing our dreams, self-expression and overcoming difficulties in a positive light-hearted way. We are playful, and enjoy forming connections to children and our inner child and simply wanting to have fun. Leo energy is one of self creative expression. It’s great for those who need an ego boost on individual or social level, and Leo makes this happen through pleasure, playfulness and romance. This Full Moon in Leo is really going to push us and urge us to find balance and harmony between romance and friendships, between expressing ourselves in a more personal ways and to start feeling proud and confident in one self!
This Blue Moon in Leo is sitting at 11 degrees. 11 in numerology is the master number of service, it vibrates at a higher spiritual learning and enlightenment. The focus is to apply your energy, this passionate fiery Leo energy to being of service to others. How can you creativity benefit others, how can you use your connections to help… This Full Moon ask yourself.. “How can I be of service to others” How can my skills or talents help others”. The more you can give, whether its making someone laugh or using your mind to make a positive change to someones life. It’s as simple as.. if you can make someone even for a moment forget their fears, worries or sorrows, you will be giving the best gift you can give. Please never underestimate the power to make someone smile.
This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo means its opposing sign is Aquarius energy. Today, look at the opposing houses that are ruled by Leo and Aquarius in your personal chart. specifically, look at where 11-12 degrees of Leo and/or Aquarius in your own natal chart. This can be a great indication where you are currently seeking this balance especially in regards to personal issues.
Today’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is aligned with an opposition to Venus. This will cause friction and tension between the planet that resonates to the feminine principle, beauty and love and the Moon, which rules over our emotional intelligence. Venus represents that part of us connected to feminine ideals of beauty, resources such as money/finances, relationships and the ability to form loving partnerships. The Moon rules over our emotions and feelings, it represents our inner security, our emotional nature, and our deepest desires and needs.
As the Moon is in Leo, we are passionate, playful, inspired, fun seeking and we have an excitable approach to life. Venus in Aquarius is rebellious, seeks freedom yet closeness, unconventional and a very unique lover. Venus in air sign is always a bit detached and impersonal and that can really reflect today. As this opposition indicates that some of us may face a challenge in the way we express ourselves our emotions (especially in social settings) and our intentions to the world. We can find we may be blocked off or cut off from others or in our personal relationships. There may feel like something is wrong or you may notice some distance between those you love and yourself, but it not true, it’s just the energy around and the inability to communicate your sensitive emotional needs and wants to others and vice versa that creates tension and somewhat misleading impression of others and yourself today. This also includes you business, work, friend and partner relationship as well as issue to do with finances and money! Try not to become obsessive or too possessive this may and will cause problems, and especially avoid overindulging in food or drink to try to ease your sorrows.
This Full Moon is about really letting go. Each Full Moon, traditionally brings us to a point of clarity. The direction of what began two weeks ago at the New Moon should show its face more clearly. We get a better understanding of where we should focus and put our energy into, in order to manifest our dreams and desires we wrote down last New Moon. It’s a time to know when to stop pursuing and cut ties to certain goals, as this isn’t the best time for us to manifest them. listen to your inner guidance you will know whats worth pursing now.
This eclipse in Leo, is really going to push our emotions to the surface. Expect to feel the pressure as we are being pushed to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants. Find the old worn out and dated emotions, ways of doing things and processes. De stress your life, banish any issues along with anything else that needs to be released this Full Moon as we have a chance to really declutter our life and make progress through this important time of change! Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances, letting go and endings. We must make room for the new by clearing out the old. This months Lunar Eclipse will be happening in the north node and will be pulling energy in from there. The effects of this lunar eclipse due to the interruption of the Suns energy, will be felt for up to 6 months.
This Blue Moon in Leo has been considered as very fortunate and lucky, it truly is something to be celebrated. It’s a time to review and rewrite if needed your long-term goal and plans for the future.Seeing that this magic Blue Moon is occurring at the beginning of the year marks a year of tremendous positive growth in your personal life. The next few days we are given a opportunity and an open a doorway into our future, don’t waste it.
Happy Full Moon.

Capricorn New Moon!
The New Moon occurs in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorns at 26 degrees. This is exciting as this New Moon is commencing a new lunar cycle. This First New Moon and lunar cycle of the year will focus on the constructive traits of grounded Capricorn. It’s a time for us to focus on Capricorn’s positive traits such as being goal orientated, practicality, reliable, disciplined, to focus on our work and career and the foundations and structures in our daily lives.
This Capricorn New Moon occurs tonight at 9:18 PM EST. New Moons are occur when the Sun and Moon join together, blending their energies. Causing the Moon to be in compete darkness as it joins the Sun and recharges its batteries,as one would say for the next lunar cycle.. This New Moon will be at 27° Capricorn. New Moon traditionally are a time for planting seeds of intention, to manifest your dreams, ambitions, goals and projects. It’s also a time to be looking at the future and setting goals. It’s a time to go inward as we the skies are pitch black, it’s about taking an inventory and taking charge of your life. Figuring out what needs tweaking or what you want to achieve in the future. It’s truly a time to set aside a moment or two, to reflect and have a serious contemplation on your life, that will hopefully bring you to an understanding of what focus of growth you want to begin in the upcoming lunar phase and most importantly how you go about reaching these goals.
Capricorn being at 26 degrees, in numerology breaks down to eight. Two plus six equals eight. Eight in numerology is about power in its self, it’s about leadership, business, construction, building and finding a balance. Eight is a Karmic number… You shall reap what you’ve sewn. The eight balances the material and immaterial worlds. This means this is going to be a very powerful and strong New Moon, that will really give us a push to make positive change.
The New Moon that is happening in the earth sign of Capricorn, the sign of the head strong goat, resistant to external change, to stressful situations and circumstances that would bring others to their knees. Capricorn is associated with those born in January, it’s a time to work hard, making do with what you have. It’s a New Year and a time for all to start fresh. It’s a time to get back to work and get serious.
One of Capricorn many talents is that they can get back into the swing of things easily, Capricorn’s are great at focusing on getting back to work, to school and into routine with ease. Capricorn’s are calm, reliable and safe. Capricorn’s are all about doing the right thing, training yourself to deal with hardships and difficulties as they come, it’s about training yourself to do the right thing, to live by the rules, to just get on with things without complaining. Capricorn’s are wonderful at being grateful along with having gratitude for what they have. Capricorn’s energy is about applying yourself, using resources and education to get ahead. The energy is also very grounded, reasonable and very practical. Capricorn is not one to complain and defiantly do not tolerate those who feel they have a sense of entitlement. It’s all is far in Love and War!
On the shadow side of Capricorn is, it can be frustrating with there over dedication to stoicism. No self-pity for earthy Capricorn which sometimes is a downfall as being to emotional cut off and over dedicated can be very harsh and cold. It’s about finding the balance and taking on the positive qualities of this sign to set achievable goals this month and for the year ahead.
One of Capricorn’s “lessons” is that we should take on board is acceptance, responsibility, boundaries and that setting goals for ourselves can allow us to focus on what really matters, that rules can actually offer us freedom by eliminating worry and fear.
This New Moon is about releasing worn-out beliefs in mind. Releasing what must happen before you can move ahead. Making room for the new. A new beginning is upon those who choose to make room for change. This New Moon is about becoming more practical and making long-term commitments, goals and change. We have the chance to create some serious order in our lives. The Capricorn energy forces us to recognize our responsibilities, and realistically nurture our dreams and ambitions.
This New Moon aligns with lovely Venus. Than forms a square to Uranus, and sextiles Mars. If there wasn’t a better time for us to realize that we need to break away from old, outdated patterns of thinking and doing so that we can move forward authentically and for our highest best good. Because Venus is involved (like she is in all 3 lunations this month with the Full Moon we had on the 1st, New Moon today and Full Moon Eclipse on 31st). Love, money and relationships (Love, Business and financial partnerships) will be a major focus for us, especially in regards to transformation and positive change. Venus will also advocate that diplomacy and kindness is the way to move forward with our goals and desires. However Uranus in Aries may not appreciate this softness and feels less comfortable with this idea as it squares the New Moon. This means some of us may tend to lean towards being impulsive and restlessness whilst others are overly focused on security and safety. This New Moon, we may need to master and push past whatever is our particular blockage, whatever makes us feel vulnerable, to gain an edge on our own growth. With wild, unpredictable Uranus in the mix, you may find yourself wanting to move forward but feeling held back by some restrictive outside or inner force. Not to fear, Mars will assist you in finding the will and drive to push through these hurdles and to take action!

Do you ever see the same repeated numbers everywhere you look? Lately whether it is on my clock, the bus route, on a receipt, my heart rate on my fit bit today and most other days 111 BPM , I keep seeing 111. Even the date today is 11/1/18, hence why I thought it great day to write a little blurb about the number 111! These numbers aren’t coincidences, they are messages from the universe inviting us to be an example of positive change, especially for people who are known as light workers.
Lets start from the beginning. In numerology, numbers hold a certain vibration and a certain power behind them, some more than others. 111, well this number carries the combined attributes and energies of the number 1 and the master number 11. Oh La La! 111 is one of the most powerful numbers in numerology, as each number is not as special as others, and this crazy cool combination has special powers, including manifestation and magic.
OK let me give you a quick run down of each number..
The number 1 in numerology or if your birth number is 1 (Mine is) is known for being unique, independent and very assertive. The number 1 also resonates with qualities of new beginnings, moving forward, motivation, inspiration and most importantly self-leadership. Number 1 is a very positive number.
The number 11 in numerology, is hands down one of the most powerful karmic master numbers there is. This number vibrates at a level of spiritual awakening and enlightenment. This number resonates with our inner calling, our own inspiration, our sensitivity, our intuition and self-expression. This master number helps those who want to connect with their higher self, to learn about the spiritual world, manifestation, to get clarity on their life purpose or your souls mission in this life time.
When these two numbers are combined together, not only do they fuse their own energies together, they explode with nothing but power! 111 has a history of being associated with the way we think manifest. It’s about watching your thoughts, words, actions and ideas. It’s about being aware of how you think and feel, and we all know how the Law of Attraction works. 111 is strongly linked up to manifesting our dreams and connecting with the divine. When you are continually seeing repetitive 1, 11, 111 it’s a time to give yourself a tune up and watch your thoughts, having positive thoughts will quickly manifest your dreams into a reality.
111 is giving us a wonderful opportunity to expand. It means the gates are open for us and we are ready to receive. You should monitor your thoughts carefully and only think about what you want, and for some, what you don’t want, like debt, pain, blockages in connecting to the divine.
Many also claim, such as Doreen Virtue, Kyle grey and other metaphysical leaders that the number 111 is a message from your higher – self, Angels, master teachers, Ascendant Masters or your spirit guides. It is the ideal time to make use of this manifestation gift and open lines of connection to the divine. You can ask your angels, guides, master teachers, higher self what they are trying to tell you. Sit quietly and simply ask, have faith and watch, listen and feel for any impressions, tingling, gut feelings you get, it could come to you in a dream, as an idea, as a thought, even to simply take a left turn rather than a right on the way home one day.
The biggest message for this number is, that it is so important to pay special attention to your thoughts to help manifest your desires. The thoughts you are thinking are manifesting at record speed. It is the ideal time to make use of this manifestation magic.
Some key points to remember
- Use your inner wisdom and intuition to guide you.
- 111 is a number that will help you bring out the best in yourself , it will also give you a boost and point you in the right direction to further make progress on your life path.
- Use positive affirmations during this period and have an optimistic attitude to make the most of the number 111.
- This is a time when you think it.. Boom it manifest into form.
- Focus only upon your desires and not upon your fears.
- Keep your thoughts, emotions , actions, and words positive, from a place of love and light!
- focus on the blessing and abundance you have, like attract like.
- it’s extra important to keep your thoughts focused upon your desires, dreams and what you want to bring into your life.
- Remember, you are literally in touch with the divine, be excited!
- It’s all about the frequencies you are admitting out, the universe matches this and responds, so stay positive!
- Another great way to use this magic is to focus your thoughts on something that is contributing to the healing, saving, growth and nurturing of this beautiful world.
Remember everyone, when you consistently see the number 111. It also means it’s time to take action! It is a call from source, the creator, God, the Universe, your guides, the Angels whomever is your higher power its letting you know they arrived and its time for you as a light worker to step up and do the job you love and are meant to do. Be a leader, spread some happiness and love, it helps to raise your vibration. Be a leader or inspiration in this beautiful world we live in. You are the light, and gratitude is the best attitude to have, and shift your vibes to a happy, loving and positive feel.

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 ?

Happy Full Moon Day! This Full Moon is going to be something else! The Full Moon enters Taurus today. I like most I have felt the energy of this Full Moon build all week. A Full Moon is when the Sun in Scorpio at 1 degrees fully illuminates the Moon, it also conjuncts Retrograde Venus in 4 degrees Scorpio. The Moon also conjuncts Uranus.
The Scorpio Sun at 1 degree wants some sort of emotional experience and Venus in retrograde at 4 degrees tells us that we are entitled and deserve to have an amazing emotional experience. The energy reminds you that “Yes” are meant to explore, experiment, have fun and live a little. It also invites us to dig deep, to seek and experience things you have never experienced before. Perhaps on the naughtier side of life. This week Venus and the Sun are both in a planetary placement that tempt you to try out new things, be adventurous behave in ways you normally wouldn’t.
The Full Moon is when the Sun sits opposite to the Moon at 180 degrees from each other. Full Moons are a time of strengthened intuition, heightened emotions, and you can observe unusual activity happening around you or occurring to other people. I can tell you the Full Moon makes my pets a little loony, and others can report some sleep disturbances!
This Full Moon in Taurus astrological speaking, with the rest of the universe in play is going to be pretty much bag of mixed energies. As I mentioned earlier we are in a Retrograde Venus however we also have Uranus, the planet of sudden change, revolt and the unexpected conjunct the Full Moon!
So my dear friends, ready or not BIG CHANGE is coming for us… The real challenge for us is going to be are we ready to embrace change, all the positive side and traits of Scorpio? Are you ready to go beneath the surface? To really let go of yourself and to feel intensely? Are you ready to allow yourself to transform? We must remember for change to occur we need to release old patterns and habits along with any old attachments. We must let our old identity die so we can embrace whatever change life throws at us. Particularly with all these retrograde about, telling and showing us the old beliefs that needs transforming.
This month’s Moon will be illuminated with Taurus energy that will shine down on us. Taurus energy is all about the real world, stability, structure, finances, practicality, money, wealth, relationships, enjoying life, food, being grounded in nature, sensuality, physical body and beauty. This Full Moon is going to urge us to do something, to create something wonderful, something physical or birth something new in any of the areas I just mentioned. This Full Moon is about putting yourself out there and experience all the sensuality the world has to offer. Uranus the planet of eccentricity is sitting on top of Taurus stirring the pot for unexpected, radical excitement and unexpected change. This along with Venus retrograde will help illuminate you with all those twisted desires and energies that will results in physical manifestations and actions that in no means would you normally act on.
This Full Moon being in the sign of Taurus, will feel comfortable and safe. The Moon likes sitting in this sign, as we know the Moon represents our feelings and inner world. Taurus is about solidity and sensuality in aspects not only physical but in our taste, our touch, or views, using all the senses. Taurus is about if you can sense it and touch it, than it is real. The Moon in Taurus wants us to take a change, get rid of the feelings of old, the feelings that weigh you down and blur your vision of the beauty that is around you. Take all that stagnant, emotional energy and stomp it on the ground. Awaken your senses be alive! This transformational Full Moon combined with the Sun in Scorpio is really guiding us to in touch with our own complexity and how we respond in any relationship.
Happy Full Moon week!

Gibbous Moon in Aries.
The Sun enters Scorpio.
The Sun leaves behind diplomatic and harmonious Libra to enter the deep, mystical and emotional waters of Scorpio where it will remain until November 22nd. When the Sun which represents our ego swims in the darkness of Scorpio, inner and outer transformation is now highlighted for us. Power, liberation and our need to create emotional and powerful connections with others is our motivation this month. We seek experiences that engage and strengthen our intimacy and seek hidden truths. Scorpio governs matters to do with life, death, transformation as Scorpio is associated with the rising phoenix, sexuality, intimacy, relationships, destruction, renewal and regeneration.
With the Sun now entering Scorpio our eyes are more open to realms of the mystic. The veil between the worlds is lifted only enough for us to encounter the spirit realm and all things ghostly. Halloween’s history originates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived over 2,000 years ago celebrated their new year on November 1. Its symbolic nature is one of marking the end of summer and the embarking of a cold, dark winter which mean,t unfortunately for a lot of people, it was a time of year that was often associated with death. The Celt tradition also talks about the last day of October, the night before their new year, in which the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred or as I mention the veil was lifted. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. Allowing us to see beyond the boundaries we generally assume are firmly in place. So keep your eyes open as you never know you may encounter small ghouls on our doorstep seeking treats to keep evil away!Happy Halloween!
Don’t forget, this week brings the Full Moon in the sign of Taurus.
The Full Moon on October 25th at 2 Taurus times are as follows…
SYDNEY: October 25, 3.45am
NEW YORK: October 24, 12.45pm
LONDON: October 24, 5.45pm

Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius.
Full Moon blessings, everyone. Today brings us to the big deal a Lunar Eclipse big deal. Today is the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius. A Lunar Eclipse always occurs on a Full Moon and is basically an amped-up magnified Full Moon on steroids. This eclipse is extra potent astronomically as it’s the longest total lunar eclipse in the 21st century, how exciting. This Full Moon is known as a Blood Moon and its energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress.
A Full Moon is where the Sun and Moon are sitting at 180 degrees from each other. The Moon is completely illuminated and thus showers us with its Luna energy here on earth. Traditionally a Full Moon is a completion point of the lunar cycle and is when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlighted with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon.a Total Lunar Eclipse, is when the Earth passes between the Sun & the Moon, the Earth with block the Suns rays from FULLY reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is fully cast within Earth’s shadow.
The Total Lunar Eclipse at 4’44 Aquarius is right smack on aggressive and sharp Mars retrograde on the karmic south node and comes in close contact to rebellious Uranus. These are very volatile energies coming into play. This also means for us we have some MAJOR intensification of the karmic energies we are working with or through. I wont lie these next few days has the potential to cause emotional distress and detachment as Aquarius energy offers perspective and even indifference or distance if necessary.The difficulties deep rooted in this eclipse may unfold in our personal circumstances or you may watch it unfold in the outer world. Pay attention!
We also have Mars at closest alignment with Earth from July 27th-31st. He will appear to us the brightest he has been since 2003 and a fun fact Mars will outshine Jupiter by 1.8 times.
Mars Retrograde is going to be a time when many of us are faced with shadow work. It’s main focus and a chance for us to change will be transforming our relationship, within and without of us. Unfortunately these shadow aspects are going to bring up certain dynamics around our ego, anger, jealously, aggression and rage in our personal relationships, but it does give us a chance to bring any underlying issues to light for transformation and change. Watch your temper and the urge to snap at those you love. Remember that trying to be all things to all people vs having real relationships is about finding a balance without giving to much away or alternatively taking to much for others. Aquarius luna energy means we will be more independent and creative whilst seeking change and being service to others.
As I mentioned this eclipse forms a square to Uranus, and Uranus loves to present us with the most unexpected plot twist! Today can be a sense of surprise, shock, or frustration as we get answers or revolutions into the emotions we’re confronted now with the eclipse.This Full Moon eclipse detach from others and your own mind and let go.
Look for the area or house in your chart that holds 4° Aquarius. This will highlight and indicates the area of life that requires a great deal of attention over the coming months. Remember this Eclipse energy can be felt for months after the event has happened. A new story or a change in the story in this area of life will develop from what occurs now. So pay attention.
This Full Moon the energy is steering us in a direction of change and progress. keep your eyes open as you give of yourself to help others. Helping others is the best way to care for yourself. Release what no longer works for you or is holding you down! Breath and let go, try to enjoy this eclipse it truly is a turning point.
Happy full moon day.

The Moon is in Sagittarius
The Moon in Sagittarius forms a challenging aspect to both Venus and Neptune.
The Sun in Leo sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces.
There may be a sense of listlessness in the air when you awake this morning. You’d like to pull the covers over your head and resist facing the day at all.
The Moon is in Sagittarius which normally keeps us feeling upbeat, adventurous, open and ready to learn and experience new ideas and directions. However, the Moon forms a challenging aspect to both Venus and Neptune. Today don’t be surprised if you feel as you are being pulled in different directions, or somewhat unmotivated and lazy! As much as you’d like to pull the covers over your head and resist facing the day or looking for an easy escape may seem like the ideal thing to do, however I can assure you that if you push yourself to experience or see things differently you will be very pleased, the world may even look different if you try just a little today. This will be especially true if you push yourself a bit to see or experience something you have resisted in the past.
The Sun in Leo sesquiquadrates retrograde Neptune in Pisces. When the planet of mysticism and dreams clashes with our ego and conscious self it creates tension between OUR reality and delusions. Try not to avoid reality today, finding a happy medium between your spirit and ego is the key for today! It’s a day for working on your creativity, dreams and spiritual; practice, however don’t get to hard on yourself or caught up in the fine details try to honor your flaws and best qualities.

Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces.
The Moon enters Capricorn.
The emotional environment is calm and uneventful for most of Tuesday with the Moon in Sagittarius for most of the morning. We do get a reality check when the Moon enters Capricorn later today. Responsibilities and work commits become clearer today as you get back into routine and structure. Capricorn is all hard work in order to develop integrity and mastery in all parts of your life. Use this energy to get those important tasks done, to get your head in order and make a plan! No more getting lost or caught up in Sagittarius whimsy, adventurous and escapism ways.
Venus in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces. This will cause some tension as the both planets energy are at an opposition with each other. Tension when it comes to romantic matters and our deepest wants and needs or lack of are exacerbated today, some will be in denial looking at love or current relationships through rose-coloured glasses. Don’t jump to any conclusions or make any decisions as it is unlikely that you have all the information necessary to do so. Venus and Neptune normally can be lovely for creativity, romance, compassion and self-less service. but at an opposition with each other concerns in our relationships and finances will be playing on our mind. The key for today is to find balance, compassion and understanding whilst using your discernment and being honest.
Have a great day!

Scorpio Moon forms a challenging square aspect to retrograde Mars

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer forms an opposition to both the Sun and Moon to Pluto in Capricorn.
Today we have a partial solar eclipse at 20’41 Cancer. This eclipse is the first in the Cancer/Capricorn polarity series! What is activated or brought to Light for you right now can give you insight into the next 19 months. The effects of the Eclipse can last up to six months. The energy being brought forth will be one of family, home life and career and work life, most importantly finding a healthy balance between them both. Look in your chart to see if either of the signs are present, it will give you a clue on what to work and focus your New Moon intentions on!
So not only do we have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer, we have the Sun opposing Pluto and then the New Moon opposing Pluto.This opposition happens once a year. Therefore it is important for us to understand that we may not be to familiar with this combination of energies. To add into the mix, all these energies we will experience will be intensified by the New Moon solar eclipse! This opposition of power will creating a potent clash between our conscious self and the Lord of transformation. When Pluto is in play its very important that we remember its energy is one of healing, rebirth and transformation. Can you think back and review whats been happening over the past 6 months? Whats been building up? Any control or power dynamics have arisen? What issues or problems that need to be healed? Whatever began for you then is now fully illuminated in all its power or darkness. Open your eyes to look deeply. This could well be a pivot point /personally or collectively.
This New Moon draw in the Cancer’s energy which is related to family, home, relationships and nurturing. Also there is huge focus on our feelings, emotions and intuition right now. As I have mentioned this eclipse opposes Pluto in Capricorn, so expect some intense and powerful light to any shadow areas concerning important relationships both personal and family.
Pay special attention to your New Moon ritual and wishes. As whatever seeds you plant for a new beginning or anything you want to manifest at this New Moon will have far more strength and magic, pushing your growth and dreams forward. Be mindful of the fact that everyone’s emotions are heightened. Pay special attention to your New Moon ritual as whatever seed you plant for a new beginning at this New Moon will have far more strength pushing your growth forward.
Traditionally a New Moon is about making new intentions, new beginnings, planting seeds that you inspire to grow. This month the Moon is in its home sign of Cancer, so our New Moon manifestation bucket list should focus on matters that Cancer rules over such as safety, intuition, emotions, food, family, domestic domains, and a focus on what our basic foundations are set upon, to focus on what we call “Home”. This eclipse is going to strengthen and magnify your new beginnings especially if your focus regarding all of these matters.
Another focus of Cancer is our sense of belonging and security, it’s about where we feel ” At Home” our weakness, vulnerability, our strengths. Cancer’s energy is about finding our ability to move forward and shake off past hurts especially in romance department or relationships with our parents. It’s about forgiving our self and others. This a time to recognize and appreciate the importance of our family or whom we call family, this includes your friends, animals and people who make you feel welcome and safe! If any relationship needs healing or forgiveness use this months New Moon intentions and wishes to build up, heal or strengthen your relationships and most importantly to work on your own relationship with yourself.
This New Moon learn to feed your soul or work on home improvements. Cancer loves food so what better time to enroll yourself and take a cooking class, have ” you” time, take a bath and honor your innermost feelings. Re-decorate your home or work place and if your domestic home life needs a tweak this is the time to work on it.
Happy New Moon manifestation guys!

You are ready to move forward with a new enlightened outlook.

The Moon enters Gemini.
Venus enters Virgo.
Don’t be surprised if you wake up this morning with an overriding desire to procrastinate, this is due to the Moon still being in Taurus this morning. When the Moon is in Taurus we seek creature comforts, overindulging in foods and well.. we love to be lazy and lounge around.
This laid back attitude procrastination in part is also to do with Mercury forming a square aspect to Jupiter that happens in the early hours of the day. You may feel strongly resistant to others direction and advise.We also search for meaning to our life and our place in life. This is a day you don’t want a boss or an authority figure at work. Oftentimes this energy leads to exaggeration or misjudgment so be careful in the way you speak to or with others. The procrastination will fall away by lunch time as the Moon enters Gemini. The mood lightens up and conversation became more interesting, intelligent and witty. You can re-engage with whatever needs to be done with less internal protest.
Venus leaves playful Leo behind to enter humble Virgo until August 6th.Venus has been in Leo since the June 13th, and lets say this is not a modest and humble sign. However now it is in Virgo expect to be more discerning in your relationships as well as you develop some refinement. Your eye is on the smallest details when it comes to romance, beauty and the finer things in life. When Venus is in Virgo we expect nothing but refinement. We are focused on vanity and on pretensions to perfection. During Venus transit through Virgo the way we express love and beauty will be through earthy practical means such as gestures, mastering the fine details of your relationships and being of service to others and devoted. This transit gives all of us the opportunity to take a step backwards and review your current relationships both personal and business. To figure out what is working in our relationships.. and what isn’t. It’s a great time to work harder on our partnerships to strengthen them for the better.
However, the shadow side of this position is being very overly critical of our partners and friends. Outlining imperfections and being too picky. Venus in Virgo makes us more reserved when it comes to matters of the heart, we can become very shy and cautious in love. Watch out for closing yourself off and making yourself as indispensable as possible in order to protect your heart and to not let people in.
