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 ?

First Quarter Moon in Scorpio.
The Aquarius Sun squares the Scorpio Moon.
The Scorpio Moon joins with expansive Jupiter.
Today brings us to the First Quarter Lunar Phase in Scorpio. The Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio brings us to a point of activating our consciousness. Some may call it a crisis point or a “freak out” moment, in which we are being asked to work out and sort out what is working for us and what isn’t. This can include, problems or issues in our daily routines, people, feelings, stress, home life, work life , personal life or health routine. Take some time out and go deep. Discover what inst working or what could be left behind or tweaked. We need to start preparing for next week New Moon/Solar Eclipse ( How exciting). We need to sort out the old and make changes, so we can bring in and manifest what we want or new changes to come about at the New Moon.
A challenging square aspect is forming between the Aquarius Sun and the Scorpio Moon. If you feel pulled between two directions today, this will be the energy causing it. The ego vs our emotion will have us torn today, our job is to find a balance between our deep running emotional side (Scorpio) and our intellectually over stimulated and logic side(Aquarius). You will also need to balance how you express both these sides of yourself today!
The Scorpio Moon joins with expansive Jupiter this afternoon. This begins a cycle of growth, abundance, becoming fruitful and we have a chance of expansion. This will be done through expanding your understanding of your emotions, passion and through deep introspection. If you have a desire to improve and grow today is your chance. Feel the emotions that arise go hard or you may be left behind.

The Moon is in Libra.
The Libra Moon opposes Uranus in Aires.
Happy Monday! Today we start the week of relatively quiet and harmonizing as there are no major aspects in the sky. The Moon is in Libra today. While we are under the Libra Moon influence you are likely to have a deep need for peace and harmony in all areas of your life. The need for balance and harmony in your life extends from your personal environment to your social life. Focus is on others, relationship and your creativity. The Libra Moon than opposes Uranus in Aires! The is the first challenge to the week. Uranus in Aires is very much ” Me Me Me and I , I , I”. I want what I need and ill get what i want, its impatient, selfish and not interested in smoothing out bumps in the road like Libra. These two will be in direct conflict together causing tension and friction between our wants and needs and putting others first. Conflict may come about between you and others. However, if you can see it that from a positive view, that this conflict can bring about much-needed change and try not to resist and retreat you may be surprised in the outcome. The key to today is.. Dont retreat, change does not happen when we are playing it safe, change comes about when our feathers are ruffled and forces us to evolve and grow. Libra being an Air sign means your communication today and the exchange of ideas and thoughts will help you out of sticky situations you may find yourself in today.
Have a good day!

The Moon is in Virgo.
The Virgo Moon makes is an opposition to Neptune.
Today astrologically speaking its a nice day and very low-key in regards to the energy around. The one aspect that may affect people today is the Virgo Moon making an opposition to Neptune. Causing some tension and bringing some challenges to your ability to find clarity in the details. Some will find it hard it to concentrate, finding that their mind wanders off and day-dream throughout this morning.
The Moon is still in Virgo, and its asking us to find a steady pace of activities that focus on the finer detail, we enjoy doing this with careful efficiency and even nitpicking at detail. Virgo’s are practical, and great at coming up with solutions, however just be careful at becoming over critical and judgmental. Just stick to whats in front of you from a structured and helpful point of view. Perception, and having a positive, detailed view-point on your organisational skills and work life will be in focus today. Along with taking a stock take of your health, diet and exercise regime, with the added bonus of making changes.

The Full Moon enters Virgo.
The Sun in Aquarius semisextiles Neptune in Pisces.
The Virgo Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars in Sagittarius.
Morning, Wow a way to start off February, how was everyone experience with the Super Blood Blue Moon last night? Anyone bask in its glory? Unfortunately here in Australia we had a visit from mother nature and its stormed all night. Blue Blood Moons historically have been a Oman for change, usually a positive change but change no less. At least I hope you got to do a Full Moon ritual or charged up your crystals last night! Even holding the intention is powerful enough to start change!
The Sun in Aquarius semisextiles Neptune in Pisces. This has the ability to create a harmonious and easy aspect between our conscious self and the planet of empathy and mysticism. This placement makes it great for those after an intuitive and mystical pursuit, its amazing for mediation or connecting with your higher self. It’s also great energy at figuring out what you want to release this Full Moon! This time is so important for those who are wishing to make a positive change!
Today begins with the Full Moon still in playful, dramatic Leo. However, she is much quieter than normal especially in such an energetic sign. Instead responding in a withdrawn manner throughout the morning. You may find that you want to retreat and focus on a creative and personal project. By the time the Full Moon enters Virgo after lunch you will be able to focus more on the fine detail and organisation of your project or whatever you have been creating up! So if things don’t seem yo add up or you have a block this morning, just remember there is a chance for you to see things from a different more structured light later on in the day, slow and steady will win today’s race
By tonight, the mood may change as the sometimes overly particular and critical Virgo Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars in Sagittarius. It would be easy to say that some may get into a hotheaded and intense argument or find people’s views unrealistic and arguable,that however you may will soon regret. If you find your tempers rising or emotions getting intense , just breath and let any aggression roll off your back, walk away and whatever you do not engage yourself in. This energy is only temporary and will pass.

Mercury in Capricorn semisquares Neptune in Pisces.
The Moon in Cancer.
The Moon forms connections with Neptune is Pisces and Jupiter in Scorpio.
The Moon is in sensitive nurturing Cancer. When the Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, the energy and mood is intuitive, caring and emotional. This Moon than forms a connection with Neptune in Pisces. Now Neptune is the planet the rules over the realm of dreams, intuition and creativity, it’s a water planet that is highly tuned in as well as highly emotional. We see the both energies combining together, and this makes for a nurturing, selflessness, inspirational and creative day. This aspect is also great for those seeking to deepen your connection with your higher self and will be done though your strengthened and active intuition. The Moon than connects to Jupiter also in a water sign of Scorpio. Three planets is water signs, three emotional, sensual, creative, flowing, psychic and intuitive signs that about seeking emotional truths and feeling ones feelings, especially during this big time of change. Its time to take a day for yourself and to heal, nurture and care for you on all levels, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. If you have been feeling stuck or seek an answer to a question, today is a great day to look within yourself. To meditate on the answer, to write in your journal or sit in silence and ask your guides for help. It’s also a great day to deepen your intimate relationships and allow your vulnerability be your key to straighten your relationships. Surround yourself with people you love today!
However, we do see Mercury in Capricorn semisquare Neptune in Pisces. This can cause some tension or give false messages to us, as the planet of communication and thought clashes with the planet of dreams and illusion. Our dreams, aspirations or messages you receive today may be misleading or false. The key for today is ask yourself and your guides, angels, higher self or whomever you believe in that works with you on a 5D soul plane, what the answer YES feels like inside and then the answer NO. This way when you get these flashes of intuition and inspiration you can go within and see how they make you feel on the inside as to whether you follow the guidance or not. Like I mentioned before if you feel confused or unclear today take time to meditate and turn within for the clarity you seek.
I would like to ay a big congratulations to my cousin who had her baby Matilda on 26/01/2018. Welcome to the family beautiful soul!

The Moon enters Gemini.
Mars enters Sagittarius.
Today Mars, the planet that represents the energy of masculinity within all of us and the planet that rules over our inner will and drive, of our assertion and direct action, leaves Scorpio behind and enters Sagittarius. When Mars is in Sadge, the inner warrior and soldier inside us begins building, creating and wanting to explore. Mars enjoys being in Sadge more than Scorpio. As Scorpio is a water planet that’s related to emotions and Sagittarius is a fire sign! Mars feels more comfortable here, being it is the red fire planet Its momentum is progressing forward. Mars will remain in expansive, adventurous Sagittarius until he enters Capricorn on March 17th 2018. We will have a need to discover and seek new information, to travel and explore, to learn and expand our minds through interactions with people and places. You will want to take direct action in regards to your highest ideas and desires. Over the next few weeks you may feel the need to rebel especially if you feel that you are being restricted or smothered in any areas of your life.
However, Mars being the all mighty male energy, don’t be surprised if you find yourself or those around you getting easily agitated, frustrated, angry or snappy. Just let things go and don’t take anything to heart. It’s just the energy shifting from water to fire, from yin to yang, from being to in-depth to soaring new heights.
It’s a great time to envision the growth within you that’s possible and to shine light on your path forward.
Happy Australia Day and have a great weekend!

The Moon is in Taurus.
Mercury in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.
This morning begins with a lovely sextile aspect forming between Mercury who rules over our mental realm and communication and expansive, abundant Jupiter. Today is going to be a positive day especially in regards too finding out some great news to do with money, work, finding out you got that home you applied for, or you got a big promotion as well as you may finally enroll in that course you have been putting off to do to further your work and education skills. Overall it’s a great day.
Today, we are able to see a lot more of the Bigger Picture, in regards to the both shadow and Light sides of life and situations we face right now. We are able to see the advantages and the growth that is possible from embracing all sides! Opportunities to teach, learn, expand and travel are very possible at the moment so embrace every opportunity that comes your way! Create more and less stress.
The Moon continues its transit through grounded, dependable and sensual Taurus. Whenever the Moon is in Taurus, who is ruled by Venus it is a great time to seek the pleasures of love and beauty all around you. Go on a romantic dinner or cook for your loved one. As the Moon and Taurus go hand in hand in their love for food and overindulging. Today set aside some time and create a loving beautiful romantic space in your home, buy yourself some fresh flowers, light a scented candle and delve into your sensuality.
The Moon later tonight will enter into mind stimulating Gemini, so on your romantic dinner you may find even more pleasure in engaging in mentally stimulating conversations.. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, the energies are neutral, so it is neither good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
Just keep things simple today, go with the flow and allow what is to be to happen.

First quarter Moon moves in Taurus.
The Taurus Moon trines Saturn in Capricorn and squares Venus and the Sun in Aquarius.
We see the first quarter Moon moving into Taurus. The Moon in Taurus is making us get into the real world, its pushing us to become more serious and lay practical foundations that will see you through the long-term. Taurus energy is grounded, placid and earthy. Its rigid and it all about security. Its pushes us to seek comfort and security in our world. However, the Moon and Taurus go hand in hand, and the both connect on a food level, and love to over indulge in the finer things in life such as naughty treats, alcohol and everything you know you love but should only have in moderation! When the Moon is in Taurus we also tend to become a tad lazy, loving to lounge around which is great if you have the option. If not treat yourself to a massage, take yourself to the movies or a late lunch with friends as Taurus motto is ” Why Rush” and has an easygoing and laid back feel to the day.
The Taurus Moon than forms a trine to Saturn in Capricorn (More earth energy) and squares Venus and the Sun in Aquarius ( Air energy). We have a good balance of energies going on today. Between the earthy energy, which is about being practical, working hard and security and Air energy, that is all about ideas, communication, inspiration and insight. By using your ideas along with your technical expertise to make changes in your practical life, will come more naturally and easier today. Such as finding a new job, making new friends, reaching out and making practical social connections. It’s a great day to use your intellect and your practicality to use, you will be amazed on how far you will go. Think large and see things on a bigger scale.
Happy Hump Day.
