The New Moon occurs in Leo at 28o, now from a numerology standpoint, 2 plus 8 equals 10. In numerology 10 reduces to 1, and the energy of 1 is all about leaderships. It vibrates new beginnings, power, starting new things and really stepping into your power. Hmm ad into the mix the Leo energy which is also about makes this New Moon Solar Eclipse more powerful! Leo is fire energy, the Sun is also in Leo and Leo is ruled by the Sun so it’s about power, confidence and about positive outlooks, playful energy, children and enjoying life. This Leo energy being pulled is about stepping into yourself and taking back your power, having access to your own passions and desires internally and grasping them dreams and making them a reality!
This New Moon in Leo will be one of creation, its essence is one of primal force. This New Moon will force us to make changes that get results. The energy is powerful and we will see results, we will not be limited, nor will we allow anyone or anything to hold us back from reaching our potential. Leo is aggressive and does what is necessary energetically to create and produce results. The Leo energy that is being pulled in pushes obstacles aside or simply drills right through them like a fierce lion, much like the vibrational force that number 1 resonate with.
This New Moon in Leo Eclipse means you’re getting a big restart in life. How exciting if you ask me! Have a look at where Leo is taking place in your chart. This will give you a huge clue as to where in your life you can expect something new and exciting to develop.
This month takes your flaws and use them as a guide to make changes. Take this Leo energy, this number 1 energy and spear point the direction you want your life to be , especially what you want to achieve over the next coming 3 – 6 months. Eclipses are nothing to fear, they are actually great for moving forward, especially if you have been feeling stuck lately.
This month I want you to walk upright with pride and purpose. When writing your New Moon manifestations and wish list incorporate Leo energy, be strong, be determined, unwavering and with specific goals in mind. This month and over the next half of the year there is a real potential you can turn dreams and ideas into reality.
The Solar Eclipse will bring in lots of fiery energy, a sense of buzzing or a jolt of energy. Be aware that we are in a Mercury Retrograde period, so miscommunication and getting our wires crossed can happen. Along with all this proud Leo energy being channeled through us. With the feeling that the world is our oyster and we can do whatever we like, be warned in the way you think and communicate, be cautious when we voicalise what these needs are, dot your I’s and cross your T’s. Especially when talking to friends and family, as simple misunderstandings can lead to offending others and insulting them. Its ging to be a tricky balance we must achieve and when we are flying so high with all this confidence energy our attitudes and behaviors can be destructive as we may not be able to see past ourselves and make mistakes. When we are ultra confident , so please make sure you have all the correct information to back your self up!! This is a big key during this period! Confidence with caution should be the motto.
Use this Solar eclipse and pull that power into your chart. If you are a Leo or a fire sign, you are going to feel at home with the energy. If you are an Earth sign you will feel more inspired when you take practical action. If are an Air sign you may feel a tad bit flighty or indecisive as too much of a good thing is too much for you to handle. If you are a Water sign you may feel either very passionate or very frustrated in regards to the feelings you have and if things don’t go your way!
Happy New Moon Manifesting and Solar Eclipse!
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 ?

This Monday morning should start out slow and easy. As the Taurus Moon loves to encourage relaxation, earthly grounding and indulging in the finer things in life! However is it a VOC so don’t try top accomplish much as the Moon will enter Gemini later today! When the Moon is in Gemini, you may feel your thought process,communication and problem solving skills pick up. Socializing will also be high on your agenda later this evening, so it’s a great time to phone up friends, siblings and get together for a yarn and a social meal!
The Gemini Moon will clash heads forming a challenging aspects to both Mercury and Mars.This can make for some intense, fiery, and some what aggressive conversations. Watch our for pressure to take action on your thoughts! Mercury and Mars are both building up to a conjunction at the end of the week, so expect these clashing interest and energies to build all week. Mental realm verses the assertiveness of Mars can cause pressure, stress and is not the best time to make commitments.

Venus in Leo Trines Saturn in Sagittarius.
The Moon enters Gemini.
Venus in Leo Trines Saturn in Sagittarius. The energy between Saturn and Venus is one of stability, especially in regards to your values, lessons, karma, love and finances. It’s a time that you will want to look back at the entire cycle between these two planets. This cycle begun between Venus and Saturn in late October of 2016. What seed did you plant at this time? How far have you come in this cycle? This can include, wealth, finances, relationships, material gain. Perhaps you have gained more maturity, personal values and better understanding of these issues.
The Moon enters curious Gemini today. Stimulating our mental realm, communication and encouraging friendly, talkative encounters throughout your day. When the Moon is in Gemini it is great for stimulating conversations, reading, thinking, complex puzzles and writing in your journal. However Gemini energy is not so good for keeping your mind still and finding some Zen!

The Full Moon enters Aires.
This morning the Moon heats things up as she enters assertive, action packed, head strong Aries. When the Moon leaves emotional, intuitive Pisces and enters Aires, our thoughts and energy shift from a state of dreaminess, passiveness, deep in thought and contemplation to a more upbeat, aggressive and bold energy. This is a day of high vitality and a fresh start as Aries begins to push us to take action, we look for what is working for us and move forward.
However, some may still be feeling the effects of the deeply emotional Full Moon we experienced last night. Watch out for sudden urges to be obnoxious, impulsiveness and arrogance. especially towards others that may be feeling sensitive today. Remember the other side of the coin, now with the Moon entering into Aries, you may have the drive to act on your feelings that emerged over the past few day. You may feel impatient, edgy, and some may even feel angry. If this is you and something or someone rubs you the wrong way and touches you on an emotional level, look out for sudden burst and the need to act quickly on instincts, as this may back lashes later on in a negative way. This is a day to keep things simple and to keep yourself physically active! Go for a walk, take a nature hike, or go for a bike ride.

Full Moon in Pisces 06/09/2017.
This is going to be a power Full Moon in Pisces, as it will be the first Full Moon after the powerful New Moon in Leo Solar Eclipse.. Eclipse are very powerful, they open up doorways and are supercharged . A New Moon for those who aren’t sure on the meanings of Luna cycles, are about new beginnings, as the Moon enters into the new cycle. This Solar eclipse was highly charged and activated new areas in our life, opened up new door ways and new paths we want to follow or change in regards to our self. Now at the Full Moon an influx of new information in regards to these new pathways and plans will be activated as the light of the Moon illuminates and shines down upon us. We will get new ways of accessing the powers to fully reach our potential also release what no longer serves us and is holding us back from reaching this new awakened higher self!
Its being about authentic and standing in the Full Moon of our divine self.
This month the Full Moon is in Dreamy Pisces. This means for us down on earth, the Full Moon is drawing in and illuminating us with Pisces energy! The Full Moon in Pisces is at 13 degrees.
This is interesting because all of this Pisces energy, especially our emotional certainty is going to come in strong and it will be a wonderful opportunity to look at your feelings and to identify whats really going on with yourself.. This Full Moon will be an emotional one, it is in Pisces the last sign of the Zodiac that rules the 12th house. Pisces rules the realm of mysticism, spirituality, intuition,creativity, feelings, companion, empathy, sharing, community, caring for others and considering others needs.. However this Full Moon these feelings of belonging, caring and compassion belong to you. Meaning that you will be sacrificing some time for yourself this Full Moon, drawing your attention to “what about me, and my feelings”. Over the next few days you will take a stock of whats going on for you, not around you and dig deep into what you want and gain some authentic answers. So get a pen and paper and start writing, emotions, repetitive thoughts, feelings and so on!
Back to the Full Moon in Pisces at 13 degrees, 3 plus 1, which adds up to the master number 4. Four vibrates at a level of security, structure and foundation. In numerology 4 is down-to-earth, dependable, hard-working, reliable, methodical, conscientious. Four is about stability. It’s the emperor of the tarot deck. The emperor is depicted as sitting high on his concrete seat or throne made of a sturdy strong foundation. Strong enough to build an empire on, but unless you have that strong foundation, especially in regards to your emotional security you wont be able to build on it because you may not have the security you need to support yourself and your dreams. To build yourself up and make a concrete foundation for your life, you need to really figure out whats going on for yourself. This Full Moon please, really slow down and stop, identify what your flaws are, or what cracks you feel within yourself that may need strengthening. This Full Moon it’s about laying things out in front of you, seeing whats there, and really loving yourself regardless of what you see in front of yourself. It’s about self forgiveness, acceptance, remembering there will be certain areas or parts of yourself that you may not be happy with, parts you want to change and parts that you can’t change. Loving yourself means accepting all of these areas and loving every part just as much as the others, and thank you Universe this Full Moons gives us such a great opportunity to release what is no longer serving us, what no longer needs to take up room within our self, what needs to be transmuted and turned into a positive aspect. It’s an emotional release, and Pisces Moon gives us a great aspect to be on the outside looking in and not stuck on the inside trying to look up and out on the horizon.
To make this Full Moon deepen even more, today in conjunct’s with Neptune – in simple terms it blends it energy with Neptune!! Neptune is the planet of dreaming, imagination, this planet rules Pisces, so even more water and Pisces energy is being brought about and blended with this Full Moon.So our emotional state will be very heightened, Neptune gives us the gift of lifting the veil and going deeper into our self more than ever. Neptune is sitting at 12 degrees, which is 1 degree away from the Full Moon. 12 adds up to 3, and 3 in numerology vibrates to communication, exchange of ideas, expression and exchange of information and for us this is happen with our self. It’s really time to learn and discover your true self. It’s so important to take stock take of our self, what you have, what is being put forth, what needs to be brought in to offer the best possible self to the world and your divine authentic self.
This is a super mystical Full Moon on the 6th September! Its energy is best handled when we can connect with our inner psychic, guru and higher self.
The Moon is known to represent our emotions and If you want to live in alignment with the universe, connect with yourself through a Full Moon ritual, yoga , Meditation, journaling and please try to go easy on yourself and just be in the present! Don’t get caught up to much on the urgency and impulses of your emotions, and how others come across as everyone’s emotions are a tad what little crazy at the moment , hence why so many of us go a little crazy at the time of the Full Moon.
Release, Revive, Nurture and Heal this Full Moon.

Mercury stations Direct.
The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces.
Mars enters Virgo.
Several important astrological shifts happen in the wee hours of this morning. First, at the Sun in Virgo , like yesterday opposes Neptune in Pisces. Expect vivid dreams and good night sleep, as you awake, happy and feeling mystical the mighty Moon enters Pisces to support this passive dreamy mood and mind state.
Remember, that Neptune rules Pisces so the energy of Neptune and Pisces reflect and support each other. This energy can leave you waking up feeling inspired, intuitive and soft however you may also be feeling, vulnerable, highly impressionable and in a confused like state of consciousness. The key for today is to find a balance between action and reflection and not to get caught up in our “dream perception and ideas of life is meant to be”.
Astrological with all this busy energy floating around, it may be difficult on to maintain boundaries between yourself and others. Be aware of this and tighten them up where they are necessary. Remember these boundaries are generally necessary to manage your everyday life. Furthermore try to loosen them where they can help you connect to others from a place of love.
Mars, who encompasses the male and the all might male energy, who is very assertive, leaves dramatic, playful Leo behind to enter productive Virgo. Mars will remain in Virgo until October 22nd. The Mars energy will shift from fire to earth, yang to yin. When Mars is in Virgo he will become very careful and precise, calculated and analytical over the coming weeks. Mars in Virgo is also great for getting organized, becoming efficient, healthy and integrated.
Then… what we have been waiting for! Mercury turns direct at 28° Leo. Bringing the planet of thinking, communication and perception into strong focus. Nevertheless, Mercury will begin moving forward steadily from here on out. Any issues in Communication, technology and that foggy thought process will begin to correct itself! So if any of you out there have been waiting for the time to sign those contract and make holiday plans you are now in technically the safe zone to do so! I can tell you im looking forward to our computers at work to start working properly and the bitchy behavior to stop!
However…We can be overwhelmed and be flooded with these many energies at the moment, that are hard to make sense of as the change takes place today. With all this energy floating around any critical decision-making might be avoided for the next day or so whilst these energies settle, as there may be too many distractions or mixed feelings along with and a general lack of clarity to deal with now!

The Moon is in Aquarius.
Saturn sextiles the Moon in Aquarius.
The Sun in Virgo opposes retrograde Neptune in Pisces.
Peaceful and tranquil is the aim for today!
The Moon spends the day in free thinking Aquarius. Working with others and team effort is high on your list today along with a desire and need to engage in intellectual stimulation,free thinking progress, and unusual experiences.
This Morning begins with a lovely sextile forming between the progressive Aquarius Moon to stable, hardworking Saturn.This is a lovely way to start the week, as this aspect offers us the ability to weave together this energies of ambitious, hard lesson Saturn and the innovation and free spirit of the Aquarius Moon. Keep your eyes peeled for wonderful opportunists that really help express your most different ideas that help make them brought to reality!
The day continues with more positive energies as the Aquarius Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to optimistic, expansive Jupiter. Your ideas are further expanded as you engage with like-minded people throughout the afternoon. So enjoy any engaging , interesting conversations today, you never know what new interest or ideas spark your interest!
The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, the Sun in Virgo wants to be discern and see clearly, while Neptune in Pisces creates a fog and makes it hard to see reality. The opposition brings an idealistic and romantic energy into focus. However it can also bring about tendencies towards denial, delusion, avoidance of reality! This aspect makes it easy for us to get lost in fantasy,day dreaming and imagination, as our reality and direction takes a back seat. So this is not the best time to make formal agreements or sign long-term contract, along with Mercury still being in retrograde so, check the facts and only sign things if you need to!

Watch your thoughts as they become reality! What you think is what you attract!
The past couple of days I have had a real urge to pull a tarot card, plus add to the mix i have had consistent universal messages such as repetitive numbers which repetitively telling me to keep up the positive thoughts and work, quotes popping up on twitter, hay house playing shows on the topic of our thoughts, strangers telling me that what i think come reality. So surprising enough when i pulled a card today this is what came up…
The message on the card reads…
It’s important to only think
about what you desire,
not what you fear.
By drawing this card, you’re alerted to the extra importance of monitoring your thoughts. You have no neutral thoughts, and every one of them creates an effect in your life. So you’re being asked to be vigilant in holding only positive thoughts.
Most of us slip into negativity occasionally, and you may be no exception. However, you can “undo” the effects of negative thinking by recognizing them, and stating: “I now cancel that thought, and replace it with the following positive affirmation of my true Divine desires.”
Then list the situations and attributes that mirror your godliness and goddessliness. During this important part of your life, you have the power to manifest your highest potential at the most rapid rate possible.
So basically guys we are being asked by the universe to watch your thoughts and that your thoughts create your reality. We are being asked daily, in every moment to be mindful of whats going through our thought process.
You are being asked that you be mindful of the chatter that goes on in your head……your inner and outer spoken words, your beliefs about yourself and your life, especially what you believe you deserve and what you feel and think you are worthy of.
You deserve all of the wonderful blessings that life and the universe has to offer but it is important to know how powerful you are in creating those blessings. Your thoughts are very powerful, as you go through the day and a negative thought enters your mind, take control of it, delete it, replace it, Say “Stop!” or “No!” replace it with an uplifting and positive thought The life you are living right now is the result of your thoughts. Think about it…

The Moon is in Sagittarius.
The Moon than conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius.
The Moon than it forms a sextile with Jupiter in Libra.
Argh the fun, positive energy of the Sagittarius Moon is still in the air! Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter who loves exploring, adventures and enthusiasm. The Moon this morning conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius. This aspect is not so good, as Saturn is the planet of structure, rules, lessons and keeping to the book, and it does not like sitting in Sagittarius who is about breaking the rules and exploration. The Moon is sitting on Saturn and then it forms a sextile with Jupiter in Libra. This astrological mix means for us that today we become more certain of our self, any uncertainty about our self or the direction we want to take will melt away and dreams can be realized today. This morning conjunction of the Moon to controlling, heavy-handed Master Saturn may leave you feeling somewhat heavy and downtrodden. Chin up its only quickly passing by and as the Moon offers enthusiasm and opportunities with that sextile to Jupiter you can focus on the lighter side of life, organise a social event, hang with friends, go to dinner.
Happy Hump Day!

The Moon in Sagittarius.
The Moon squares the Sun in Virgo.
Today begins with the First Quarter Moon, following last week’s Full Solar Eclipse. The Moon is in fun and freedom-seeking, philosophical Sagittarius .Whatever you began at the Solar Eclipse is now ready to be acted upon.
The Moon in Sagittarius squares the Sun in Virgo and Neptune. Today is a day to reflect on both the future and the past. Some of you may end up at a crossroads today. You can find yourself looking at what you have done so fa, and then looking at what your supposed to do in the future.. Are you stuck in limbo at the moment? Try and align your beliefs and values, you will have more of a clear idea of what you want and your actions will be true self. Take a moment and really consider how the Virgo Sun pushes us to be productive, organised and analytical while the Sagittarius Moon creates a need for freedom, learning and independence. Today’s vibe means you have the chance to change your life around for the better, even though the energies are conflicting they push and demand us to take action.
Wanna know something crazy.. We have only 4 months left of 2017!
