Full Moon Ritual

Full moon Ritual

As the full moon is upon us, it’s time to reflect and release those things that no longer serve us. Let go of what you no longer need in your life or any aspect of yourself that you may have outgrown. The moon, being the closest astronomical mass to Earth, has a profound effect on us. When the moon is full, it is at its high tide of power, amplifying energies. The moon traditionally represents the emotional, nurturing, creative and feminine aspect of our lives. When the energy is intense and as powerful as this, it enables you to take action, have you ever felt a pull or an urge leading up to the full moon? Many people feel this intensifying energy, it is a sign that you may need to release energies that no longer serve you, and you can do this by performing a Full moon ritual.

The full moon period is a great time to take action towards your new moon intentions you made two weeks prior and is a great opportunity for some self-reflection. The full moon can shed some light on what could be holding you back and what needs to be released that’s standing in your way .

A Full Moon ritual is a powerful way to invoke the intention of releasing and Letting go. You can purge yourself of any old identities, frame of mind, attitudes, behavior and situations. You may wish to take an inventory of thoughts and beliefs no longer serving you, clean out your possessions. Remember, you can release anything emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually.  Release any addictions such as food or drama, emotional vampires,  unhappiness in your job , relinquishing suffering involved in hurtful relationships.

You can also seek guidance from your spirit guides or angels to help highlight what is ready to be shed from your life. Tools to help you connect with your guides include oracle cards, journaling and automatic writing, or mediation. Trust the guidance that comes to you, your gut instincts are usually right.

Write down all the things you wish to release and give thanks for what it’s already served. After writing them down you can visualise them being released and healed, do this by performing your ritual sitting under the moon or at a window with the moon shining down.

 What you need

Pen, paper, lighter, candle, small bowls (if you intend on burning your notes) , water, sage and other personal objects such as crystals.

  1. Create a sacred space. Find a quiet, clutter free place to sit, place crystals or other special tokens around you.
  2. Clear your energy. Burn sage and clear your energy space, or you can imagine standing under a silver or bright white waterfall of pure light and allow all negative and lower energies to be cleared away.
  3. Light the candle, Take a few deep breaths, center yourself and then begin to write on the piece of paper what you wish to release from your life
  4. When you have finished your list, sign and date the page.
  5. Go into your heart space/chakra and declare “I now let this go. I ask you angels to please take this list for healing and transmutation, and I thank you, Amen.” Then place the piece of paper over the candle allowing the flame to light your page, you then place it in the bowl and watch as the flames consume and release your request to the universe for healing.
  6. Use your intuition to guide you. You may just want to sit under the moon and read your list aloud, or with a lit candle and not burn your page. You may want to meditate on what to let go of. Just the intention of releasing and letting go can work.

Just remember… our words have power. Saying – “Be Gone” audibly and loudly can be very freeing. Thank the spirits and angels. Be safe and don’t forget to have some fun.

Moon in Sagittarius

Mars in Capricorn squaring Jupiter in Libra.

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn

The Moon is in Sagittarius today! A Sagittarius Moon is outgoing , it’s an exploring, exciting energy, not so much a looking inwards energy. Full of adventure and fun seeking magic is around today and it is very positive in its nature.

Mars in Capricorn squaring Jupiter in Libra can leave us feeling enthusiastic but also a little excessive. Today watch for being to over-confident and becoming to impatient! We can find our self becoming too overly focused on what we think should be or do and in the process, lose sight of what could be possible. Mars in Capricorn can leave us feeling excitable, competitive and ready to work hard and be practical. We can experience these intense sudden urge’s that takes over and insist we take risk’s or a strong sense to defend our beliefs and opinions, this aspect is all about your personal will and how far you are willing to work!

Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. Deep, passionate and very excitable energy is in the air today. This aspect is great for those who want to ramp up their personal relationships, to feel more intimacy and new levels of empowerment. Venus/Pluto is about being real and raw.We will appreciate depth of feeling’s and authenticity in our dealings today personal or professional.

Have a great day

Thursday 15th September

Moon in Pisces

Virgo quincunxes Uranus in Aries.

Mars & Chiron square

Today’s  energies are complicated. Themes of wounding and healing are present today as the desire to grow and learn is strong. We feel an urge to expand through experiences and others today. An oppositional energy between the conscious self and our ego self exist today with the Moon in Pisces. Today  we will have an opportunity to dive deep into emotional wounds and get to the Source and root of them.

With a Mars-Chiron square today some of us can find it challenging to express our inner desires,  bringing up wounds of the past and with fiery Mars some may find it difficult to express anger clearly and directly. Some of us today can become defensive, frustrated, touchy and somewhat resentful!

Virgo quincunxes Uranus in Aries.This can have a surprise element bringing a wild card energy to the day! This can leave some of us feeling a little out of control.The shake up and wake up calls of the day may leave us feeling like we are in the wrong direction.

With a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces occurring tomorrow, emotions are building. This is not a good time for objective reasoning just go with the flow and don’t take things to heart! Full Moons are a time when we release things that no longer serve us, it is an emotional and intense time, a time for romance and relationships.  This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse ask us to look more closely at our life, at our needs, lacks, and wants.

Major energy shifts are happening today and over the next few days each of us will experience individual shifts on a conscious and subconscious level.

Have a great day

Mercury Retrograde Aligns with the Sun in Virgo

Mercury square Mars

Mercury Retrograde aligns with the Sun in Virgo today, bringing illumination and spark to our thoughts. Today information and ideas will be brought to light, we will have aha moments and new insights. This is a critical time for new ideas so pay attention!

We are at a halfway point in Mercury’s retrograde , well technically. This is due to Mercury passing between the Earth and the Sun at its inferior conjunction, this usually marks the midpoint in its cycle. This Midpoint is a great time for processing recent ideas, events and situations that may of come to light as well as for beginning to look at problems or issues from a new perspective or a better understanding.

Mercury and Mars form a square today . We could too easily found ourselves in disagreement with others, friction and tension could arise as Mars the warrior planet that rules over conflict and anger is squaring with the planet of thoughts, communication and ideas can making it difficult to engage in healthy dialogue and some can find it frustration to express how we feel .There is some feisty energy in the air today so watch what and how we approach others as we may stir up controversy with what we say.

The Moon goes from Capricorn into Aquarius today. Aquarius Moons can bring surprises at any time, Aquarius Moon may make you feel detached at times or inclined toward objectivity in your emotional responses and dealings today .

Have a great day

The New Moon in Cancer 2016

Today marks the beginning of the 29.5 day Moon cycle, as we are having a New Moon in Cancer today  July 4th, 2016 .New Moons are a new wave of energy  that happens when the   Sun and Moon meet at the exact same point of the zodiac ( being Cancer this month)

As a Cancerian myself this is a very exciting month for me, a month of love, birthdays, happiness and today a chance to dream up big and manifest.

This Cancer New Moon offers us a chance to rebirth our emotional body. What do you desire to feel about yourself and your life? What Cancerians traits would you like to manifest and invite into your world?

Cancer is the sign of the Mother,Carer, Nurturer. Cancer symbolizes the womb of Life. Cancerians are the protectors,highly  creative and we feel things on a  very deep level, deep like the running tides of rivers and the oceans. As Cancer is the first cardinal water sign it is a sign of strong feminine power providing the symbolic water of life upon everyone we come across.The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, drawing upon the waters of creation in a tidal ebb and flow. The Moon speaks to us through our  imagination, our visions, our dreams, our symbols, our stories… Cancerians are highly intuitive, our gut instincts are 100% so don’t try to trick us we see through the veil of lies, we are very observing and we will love you until the end of time, no matter how bad you hurt us.  We are ruled by our stomachs, we heal by cooking, comfort eating, and smoother the people we love.

This Month  listens to your emotions, acknowledge them as valid feelings, which in turn will tell you what we need to do to prosper in your world.

~Today’s Daily Oracle card~

Well this card could not pop up at a more perfect moment, as it’s a new moon and a time to manifest



This card says, “”Now is the perfect moment to dive in and embrace your heart’s desire

Even though you may feel that you are not ready to start working on your heart’s desire, this card is saying that now is the best time to do so. In other words, even though you may not feel ready, you are ready right now.

This is about taking steps towards your true heart’s desires, both big and small. In some way you need to establish what you don’t need in your life, or what will interfere with you working towards your true heart’s desire. It could be the way you think, as you may have self-doubts, fears, worries, insecurities and other self-sabotaging thoughts. In some sense, what is needed here, first to recognize that you have such negative thoughts, second perhaps establish a pattern, when you are likely to think of these negative thoughts, third be vigilant so you can recognise these negative thoughts and forth to deal and challenge these thoughts, so you can turn them around so that these negative thoughts do not have such a hold on you.

It could be a simple case that you have too many responsibilities and obligations places on you. If people are constantly putting demands on your time, energy and attention, know that it is OK to say “No” occasionally. If you have too many responsibilities, if there is someone around you who can do them for you , than delegate, so that the workload is fairly distributed. By doing this you are rescheduling your time so you can spend time doing something that is truly important to you.

By working on your true heart’s desires you will have more energy, have greater self-esteem, you will be happier and you will attract more abundance.”

So work with the New Moon write down your manifestation list work with your angels and guides, you are ready to manifest what you truly desire in your life right now

Set Some Goals

“Set some goals. Stay quiet about it. Smash them out, no matter how long it takes you. Stay humble & Clap yourself on your back ( any small or large achievements. Any milestone is a win). ” The right people will notice & well the rest ( small select few of haters) will ALWAYS, have something to whinge & critique you about..

Unhappy people are never happy within them selves and will always find something to pick at!! It’s a reflection of themselves not you.

So smile, say something nice to them…

Let whatever issue they have with you bounce straight off you. ( and internally giggle at the simple mentality).

My mum has taught me many things in life , one of the biggest lessons is ” Andy , people are going to love you or hate you & that’s not your problem… It’s theirs.

So the nicer you are ( generally nice) to someone who is rude, mean, negative or so called “Hates you” , be the bigger person , say something nice, smile at them, the more friendly & nicer you are the more angry , annoyed & frustrated they get… ( it’s a lot harder to be an arsehole to someone is who is completing you, because in the end they look rediculous) and the world does notice!

Your existence alone has altered the world. You are more important than you know.
So smile

Happy days xx

New Moon in Taurus, and the week ahead

The week ahead

Well this week we see the magic of the waxing crescent moon transform into the beginning of the New Moon cycle that occurs on Friday, May 6th, 2016.

May 6, 2016   3:29 PM Sun Conjunct Moon (New Moon)

The Aries New Moon cycle we have just been in ends and the New Moon in Taurus cycle begins.

The New Moon in Taurus

The energies of this earth sign is the mighty Bull!, It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures, this New Moon is great time to commit to personal goals, try to tap into the beautiful grounding energies of this star signs and not pulled down by their negative!

Enjoy activities that bring you in touch with nature and with you bodies. Taurus is about security, safety, ambitions, sensual and practical. The have a great eye for beauty, and a mastermind with finances. With this New Moon approaching its time to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. Work at it, wish and put the intentions out there on what your true heart desires.

Mercury transits the sun (crosses in front of the sun, as seen from Earth) on May 9, for the first time since 2006

With Mercury in retrograde and with the New Moon approaching Taurus, this is a good cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to possessions and money, and to discover what truly makes us happy and fulfilled.

Jupiter pops out first thing at dusk. It’s the brightest star like object in May and lights up the nighttime until the wee hours of the morning.



Lets Start at the beginning of the week

Monday 1st May , the moon is in Pisces connecting ( T-square configuration) with Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn. As we know Pisces is a creative, artistic a dreamer..  but it can also leave your thoughts chaotic and a little of not knowing whats going on this is  due to Mercury in retrograde. The configuration of these planets, we may be feeling a little chaotic , emotional unbalanced, with internal and external conflicts. We will feel to a degree, instability and undecidable with our goals and what next step to take. A positive aspect is our usual intuition and judgment is enhanced under this influence, and we can use this to help ground ourselves when thinking, dealing and seeing in matters with fresh new perspective that works in our advantage. finding beauty in the differences.

Tuesday –

The Sun trine is in a positive aspect with Jupiter and Virgo  This influence is about growth and expansiveness. These planets are about earth and stability and practical matters. We are more aware of moral issues, and have a desire to improve and learn. Optimism and confidence are basic elements in the energy of this transit. We are more willing to take a risk or two, and we are motivated by a desire to impress others. Enthusiasm runs high, and cooperation comes easy. This is generally a good time to schedule new beginnings in business, education, personal relationships, marriage, creative projects, and so forth, all things equal.

Although Taurus energy  can be easy-going and respectful, its energy  can also be unbelievably stubborn, self-indulgent and inflexible in their approach. So if you find this week that if logic and logical conversations don’t seem to be getting across to some you will know its the stubbornness of the Taurus energy, so just breath , smile and know  that some might refuse to listen! common sense sometimes isn’t so common.

When Wednesday/Thursday   approaches, this is a special day as the Sun is in Taurus; Mercury is in Taurus; Venus is in Taurus; Mars is in Sagittarius. WOW what a mouthful, and kinda unnerving, this whole week is a build of energy for something big to be released… A cosmic storm!!!

Friday we see the New Moon. The last New Moon in Scorpio was a little intense with that Scorpio energy, now the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus  we will see on that day the Moon will make several aspects , aspects with Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, pluto and Mercury . Be prepared it will be a very busy new moon, and new moons are always about new beginnings  and with this potent Taurus energy  it’s all about practicality nature, security oriented nature dealing with money , values , resources, material level, projects or careers.

Saturday  and Sunday we will see a very busy build up of positive earth signs. that will include – Pluto,Jupiter, Capricorn and Virgo. This build up of energy is a good change, we will see positive results once mercury and jupiter get out of retrograde and go direct!! The  Sun in Taurus is trine with pluto , jupiter and Capricorn, so this results in a Grand Trine. The Sun is making a grand trine with all the earth signs, the Sun in Taurus  is aligning and connecting positively with jupiter and the earth sign of virgo,  The Sun is also  in a positive aspect with the earth sign of capricorn. The grand build up is transforming a powerful energy, that will be interesting to see unfold over the next few weeks.

So lets not forget to mention Mercury

Have you noticed its effects? i sure have.. Sigh

Mercury is in retrograde, and as the planet of communication, when it is in retrograde  communication can be misinterpreted ,confusing and lead to an uncertain level of communication confusion! EEK so while we are in this period its best to remember that mercury rules our lower minds and how we perceive information, interpret information and communication,  from ourselves, others and our surrounding environment. So pay close attention to what you say and communicate in general.

Mercury also has ruler-ship in other areas of our worlds such as buying and selling, travel, signing formal contracts, speaking,  negotiating,  listening and  documents, so try to avoid any large purchases, booking holidays, signing new business deals and contracts, negotiating new jobs or pay rises as all of these areas of life can affected when Mercury is functioning in a sluggish state.

Good old Mercury is here to help us make important changes in our lives, he helps us to  reorganise and reflect.This period is  great at  looking  at the world, situations, ourselves a little differently,  with rose-coloured glasses or through different filters, and most importantly Mercury helps us  come up with some very important inner revelations

So this Week

You have the chance to make important changes in your lives.

Self reflect – is it time to make some solid yet realistic plans?

Sit down, really reflect on what you want to change or bring into your life, write your New Moon intentions

Be proactive and  set the stage for reaping the rewards from your new beginnings, as little or big as they may be.

Meditate and focus on your third eye, root and solar plexus Chakra

Purification and cleansing this week is the theme, with mercury being in retrograde. Use this time as a Cleanse period and rid the path of most resistance…

Law of attraction will be put into practice this week, testing our new boundaries, Ask for assistance this week from someone who is more in tune with  the divine , universe, a guru etc.. if you feel like you are in a rut, help is coming, just wait it’s on it way ,  talk to your guides, angles the  big man in the sky and take the life raft if one is offered to you.emotional cleansing will lead to liberation for the soul, and  will help ground you this week with all the cosmic chaos going on.

Clean away old patterns, energies that you  rid to get rid of before and didn’t work, cos now with the planetary alignments and the New Moon it is the time to really clean and cleanse out ourself for our souls, its time for you to get  rid of what has been holding you back

Honour your self

You gotta be in charge this week.

Letting go 

“In the process of letting go, you will lose many things from the past. But you will find yourself….It will be a permanent Self, rooted in Awareness & Creativity. Once you have captured this, you have captured the world.”

‘Deepak Chopra’

The path to happiness is often a path of letting go, removing what no longer serves you and not adding to or gaining something. Learning to let go of the past, in particular, emotions, attitudes, bad habits, draining relationships and any other “baggage” that is holding you back is the key to our inner happiness and long overdue healing. In order to make way for amazing wonderful things to come we must leave our comfort zone and “Let go”.

Learning to let go can be somewhat scary, but it is essential!! Learning to let go of old ideas, people, habits and any other situation that no longer serves you is the key to inner balances and self-growth.

A huge block to “letting go” for personal growth is that the future is always unknown. The future is unpredictable, and by letting go, a part of us feels as we may loose an essential part of our life, our identity, a friendship, and a major element of our past, our personality, family or values. This can be a stumbling block, but to truly move forward and embrace what the future has we have to shed our old skin, move forward.

Here is some great examples of dysfunctional living habits that are worth reconsidering and letting go of, they can offer you a temporary relief, but in the long run just add stress, strain and are just simply unhealthy for the mind body and soul.

  • Avoiding work obligations and procrastinating.
  • Excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Emotional eating.
  • Consuming too much sugar, junk food.
  • Smoking.
  • Skipping meals.
  • Avoiding exercise.
  • Late nights.
  • Abusing prescription & illegal drugs.
  • Stimulants.
  • Taking on to many obligations.
  • Staying in draining, abusive, emotional dysfunctional relationships.
  • Self harm – physically, emotionally or mentally.
  • Not allowing “Personal” time.
  • Not enough sleep
  • Excessive caffeine, soft drinks and energy drinks consumption

Try and commit to yourself and let go of these habits!! Swap one bad habit for a good habit, instead of emotionally eating yourself to a larger dress size, take it our on the cement  (pavement) and walk out any frustrations, sadness or anger! Instead of staying up late, record that TV show and treat yourself the next day after work..

You are worth the effort; the key to life is balance and happiness! Move ahead and let go of your past, more, not less of your personality and gifts will manifest

I know what I will be letting go of, and now that we have a Full Moon in transit in the past week it makes for a great time to sit down with yourself, and really think long, hard and deep about what is not working in your life? What feels like resistance in your world? is it that job, or a bad habit (like excessive sugar consumption), worrying about your diet or if you have enough time to please everyone ( whilst neglecting your own needs) .
