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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Moon is in Pisces.
The Moon opposes Mercury in Virgo.
Mercury in Virgo trines Venus in Cancer.
The Moon continues on her journey through mystical, Pisces.When the Moon is in this sign its much more emotional, loving, spiritual and caring. Today, do allow yourself to float unburdened and take some time and listen to your intuition and allow space for dreamy sensitivity.
The Pisces Moon opposes Mercury in Virgo. Mercury governs the way we think, and communicate and in Virgo it takes charge and is a machine. It takes in all information, it gathers it and makes sense of it. Its rational, looking at information for what it is.
Mercury trines Venus in Cancer, Venus is all about love and beauty and in cancer she is very nurturing emotional . This however can cause a problem for Mercury in Virgo. The Pisces Moon and Venus in Cancer means today our feelings will beat logic so watch out for that. Logic and reasoning will step aside for love and passion, be careful as the urge of sudden emotions and impulses can override your sensibility, so think before you stand under your partners window holding a boom box and declaring your love.

Channeling the positive aspect of Aquarius energy to help heal and release!
If you have a chance , sit down and think about what no longer serves a purpose in your life, get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go. Get in touch with your emotions.
Happy Full Moon day!

The Moon is in Capricorn.
Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.
The Moon is in mature Capricorn. The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep a level head and reasoning on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your best today to maintain some balance and maturity without letting the darker traits of Capricorn surface like pessimism and over ambitiousness. Maintain your integrity!!! Power struggles can get exacerbated right now, especially with this Jupiter/ Pluto square. Today instead, focus on standing centered in your own power and space and have others meet you half way.
Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. This is the final in a set of three squares between Jupiter and Pluto that begun in November 2016. We might throw ourselves into working on resolutions or finding harmonious answers.
The positive aspect of this square is that it has the ability to stimulate our inner ambitions.The energy fuels us up to set our goals high,high enough that we can achieve anything. This square basically stirs up and creates friction and tension between the planet of transformation and healing, and the planet of expansion! We now see our desire to transform and evolve and realize its not that far to grasp.
However, this Jupiter-Pluto square also stimulates a part in us that may be overreaching. We may take on too many interests, activities, change and desires under this planetary influence. We can place too much pressure and importance on what we want to achieve ignoring our energy and our limits burning the candle at both ends.
The key to managing the energies is to ease up on the pressure we place on ourselves and others, and not to stir up others with our strong point of view and stand point. As we can find the urge to exaggerate our importance or power we hold, either to ourselves or others.
Have a good weekend.

The Moon enters Sagittarius.
The Moon squares Mercury in Virgo.
Early this Morning the Moon leaves sassy Scorpio and enters adventurous Sagittarius. Our emotions start is use up in intensity. With the Moon squaring Mercury we are less about our emotions and more making a plan to move forward, unlike yesterday vibe we experienced.
When the Moon is in Sagittarius we are encouraged to look at the world around us, to learn, to play and to be more optimistic in the situations you face! Open your mind to a new, more expansive view, as today could bring much understanding and learning your way.
The Sagittarius Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mercury later today. The planet that rules your thoughts and logic will be challenged by your reasoning and questioning of life! Especially when it is on its ruling sign of Virgo who is very analytical, and loves facts and figures! The key to handling this aspect is by not engaging in the challenge but simply retreating, keeping a low profile and heading to bed for a good night’s sleep.
Take the first step and chase your dreams, put your desires into action.
Have an amazing day!

Venus moves into Cancer.
The Moon is in Scorpio.
The Scorpio Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.
The energy turns very emotional this week as today we see Venus the planet of love move into sensitive Cancer. When it is in this sign, it is at its most nurturing, most sensitive and caring. The need to care for yourself, others, animals will be strong. This includes caring for how you and others feel, and being true to yourself.
The key for today is forgiveness, forgiveness for yourself for any dramas, past hurts or disappointments that are pulling at your heart. Forgiveness for your health, forgiveness if you feel like you don’t have the life you dream off, forgiveness for any lack you may think is missing.
Venus will stay in Cancer until August 26th. We can expect to experience many emotional ups and downs in love and our relationships under this influence.Venus in Cancer is impressionable nurturing, protective, self-protective, cautious, family orientated, we experience an increase in our sensitivity and we are fertile.
This period wont be what everyone thinks it will be for example we will all be sad, temperamental and over emotional. This energy is great for healing! It is also great for those who want to get very intimate , sensual and form a deep connection, a very emotional connection. One that is written about in fairy tales and heroic stories. It’s a time to look those you love in the eye and really tell them you love them.
The feelings and ideas that arise are here to tell us something about our self, the more you fight it, ignore it or don’t acknowledge that part of your self the more you deny your soul of evolving, moving forward and accepting what is, in order to have a happier life.
The Moon spends all of today in the sign of Scorpio. More water energy, emotional energy, means we are willing to dive into the hidden parts of us, we are ready to dive into the fear, resentment and into all the hidden emotions we usually repress. We seek out activities that enrich and that are deeply fulfilling.
This Scorpio Moon than sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn is all about making changes. Today you will feel a great deal of emotion, you may feel sentimental and the littlest thing can set you off. Deep rooted feelings and past disappointments may also rear their ugly heads so use this time to sit down, take a personal inventory and feel what changes may need to be made. These feelings are here to show us what you need to do in life what you want your life to be like. It’s the future of your emotional, mental and general well-being. Take charge!!
Look out for any signal in any area of your life and use this to motivate you! Acceptance is the key, use the Pluto energy to transform your life in the positive way!
Have a great day.

7 traditionally is associated with mysticism and illusion. It is linked in with the dream world and it governs the realm of our imagination and magic. It has strong connections to psychic powers. Some of you may have heard ” Lucky Number 7″. It vibrations of energy resonates with inner wisdom, esoteric, intuition, manifestation, spiritual awakening and deep contemplation. 7 has natural healing energy and magical gifts of the hidden and unknown.
This number loves to study, and is wise it loves being analytical and spiritual. It is the number that seeks truths. It is the energy of a spiritual and truth warrior and seeks to learn and grow at any cost.
The 7 is spiritual, but not religious. The 7 knows that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions. The energy seeks out the answers to, who am I and why am i here.
The downside of this numbers energy is that it can aloof, sarcastic and distant. 7 energy can leave you being socially awkward and melancholic and when pushed can become very backstabbing.

The Moon leaves Virgo and enters Libra.
The Libra Moon forms a sextile with Mars in Leo and the Sun in Leo.
The Moon is in graceful Libra, and for us that means that we feel more tolerant of others and more interested in presenting ourselves in a more amicable, harmonious and somewhat sympathetic light. We’re seeking out balance and weighing our up our options in our decision-making process. The Moon in Libra sparks our desire to become relationship focused.The Libra Moon loves to be social, being out and about and around others.
Later this evening, the Libra Moon forms a sextile with Mars in Leo and the Sun in Leo. Being a fire sign, the energy is Big, Loud and Enthusiastic. So we get a mighty cosmic push to do and achieve something big today. We might take a risk, or to be loud and proud about an idea or plan. Fun, daring dangerous is the theme for today or something that lights the soul. Today take these complimentary energies and organise a dinner party, host an event, be in the spotlights and have fun!!! kick up your heals and enjoy your time with others.
Have an amazing day!

The Sun in Leo conjunts Mars in Leo.
The Moon is inVirgo.
With the Sun in Leo conjunting Mars in Leo, the real action builds throughout the day to its climax, as we have a lot of Leo energy floating around, a lot of fire, passion. This is the beginning of a one-year cycle of illumination of strength, self-determination, and physical energy. When the Sun is in Leo its wonderfully enthusiastic, fun-loving , joyful, playful and happy. When Mars is in Leo, he also wants to have fun and enjoys this fire energy of passion in the Air. Mars energy is about pushing through obstacle, however when in Leo can be over enthusiastic about breaking down boundaries. Mars become the ultimate male icon and over macho and masculine. This energy leads us to instinctively take action. However, Watch out for this energy when dealing with situations and problems today as being over-confident can backfire when used in the wrong context. We could also become very direct and frank, and perhaps somewhat short-tempered and impulsive.
Think of this Sun/Mars aspect as a time to plant a seed of personal strength and perseverance toward a long-held goal.
Today is a powerful day! The day begins with a razor-sharp ability to use our power in an efficient manner as the Moon in Virgo forms a beautiful trine aspect to powerful Pluto. When the Moon is in Virgo, we’re inclined to see the finer details and flaws around us especially in our work environment. Ideally, this encourages us to solve problems or find common ground to make peace with those around us.
Later tonight that sharpness may halt as the Virgo Moon forms a challenging square to Saturn. This planet of karma and life lessons may make us wonder if we pushed too hard for something we desired, maybe at the expense of others and also may have the tendency to make us overly critical.
Hope you have a great day.

The New Moon in Leo will enter Virgo today..
Mercury enters Virgo.
By the time you are up and are moving around today, Mercury the planet that rules our mental realm and communication, has moved from expressive Leo into efficient Virgo.Mercury is the planet rules Virgo along with Gemini FYI.
Virgo energy is very organised, industrious, practical and concerned with others. Mercury will remain in this analytical sign until he enters Libra at the end of September. When Mercury is in Virgo it is a wonderful time to get down to business. Take advantage of this time to get precise, important and efficient work done. Detail to attention, paperwork, effective communication will be a strong point with the planetary placement so don’t waste it! Mercury in Virgo is like a sponge, and with a lot of information coming in during this period you will be soaking it ALL UP!
Expose yourself all the information that presents itself to you during this period, apply it, understand it and when you are ready use it to your advantage.
The Moon leaves playful Leo and enters Virgo. Virgo Moon is very interested in learning, it loves breaking things down and making sense of things, mastering topics and understanding how things work especially if it can help others solve problems.
The New Moon in Leo only took place a couple of days ago and is still in the New Moon phase! So if you have not yet had the time to write down you New Moon wishes so it’s not too late!
Happy New Moon manifesting.
