How to be spiritual in the modern world

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?

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.

The New Moon in Capricorn

Mercury enters Capricorn

Arh Mercury the planet of communication, travel, thoughts and our mental realm moves into practical Capricorn. Mercury is in Capricorn from December 2-January 4 2017. Mercury represents mental energy or intelligence . It governs that part of the brain that concerns our communication including interactions with others.  Today  when Mercury moves out of the sign of  Sagittarius and into Capricorn we see a shift from passion, adventure and free-flowing to a more grounded and practical way of thinking. Mercury in Capricorn is focused, our thinking is methodical and our focus practical and deep. This next month our concentration on the task ahead will be easier, our conversation with others will be more realistic and focused on practical matters than airy fairy matters, we are logical orderly, and organized in our dealing.

The New Moon is in Capricorn.With the Moon and Mercury in Capricorn we are very serious, timing is important and we will try to seek definition and structure to the world around us and internally.  Self-discipline will be the theme of the day and some will feel a renewed acceptance of your personal responsibilities. Today use the Capricorn energy to gather determination to focus on the reality of what you know must be done in your life and for the future.Realism enters the picture today,  and precision becomes important to us.

Have a great day and an amazing weekend

Mars in Aquarius trines Jupiter in Libra.

The New Moon in Capricorn.

Chiron in Pisces.

Mars in Aquarius trines Jupiter in Libra. Expansion and drive take form today, we are innovative and very evolutionary in our actions today. We have great skills today at taping into our life and seeing what needs changing, along with the drive to make the changes. Be the change you want to see in the world. Growth and a desire for positive change within our relationships is strong today. Give of yourself to the cause you believe in.

The New Moon is in Capricorn.When the Moon resides in Capricorn , we are hard-working, disciplined and ready to be serious in our actions we take. We are focused on effort, and if we can can focus this energy on working with others we will see a much greater outcome and benefit us on moving forward.

Today there is a  resilient energy in the air as Chiron in Pisces is stationary and turning direct today. Chiron is known as the “Wounded Healer” so many of us can feel the inner tension to heal past wounds and hurts around old relationships and our self-worth.. This also can unearth some deep deep emotions that we may have repressed, emotions such as rage, anger and pain, the kind of intense emotions that have the potential to destroy our integrity. However on the lighter side we have a real chance to heal today, and to see things through new eyes, we also have a chance to gain fresh awareness and insight regarding the past. Today just sit in the water depths of your soul and face what needs to be healed and if the urge to lash out at the ones you love surfaces, stop, count to ten and breath!

If you need to write a letter to the past in order to heal than today is the day, allow  yourself to open you up, as it can be revealing, insightful, healing and it can take you closer to the truth of your soul.

Have a great day

New Moon in Sagittarius 29/11/16

Venus is in Capricorn.

Venus squares  Uranus in Aires

The New Moon in Sagittarius

It’s a big day astrologically speaking today! The New Moon is in Sagittarius . As we know New Moons and Full Moons have significant influences on us as the energy is so powerful . The question you are going to ask yourself here is how can i express myself creativity and what new beginnings can i make in my creative life. What new doors could potentially open in your life?

Today Venus is in Capricorn , Venus the planet of beauty and creativity and Capricorn is earthy and practical, so Venus is ready to work! Venus squares Uranus in Aires, so there is a real unique driven sense of ” I have something to express” you may have a creative vision that you really care about and are ready to put the hard yard in. This square aspect also brings a wake up and shake up vibe energy into our love life, money situations and to help us create more beauty in our life.

The New Moon today at 7’42 Sagittarius is the commencing a new lunar cycle. This Luna cycle is all about pulling in extra energy and getting ready for the next monthly cycle and starting a new again. New Moons are about planting seeds of intentions and really focusing on what you want to create for this month ahead. The moon is dark and makes us reflect inwards on what we really desire and require in our life. The energy we are pulling in this month is Sagittarius energy. We might want to focus on some of the positive traits of the sign of the Archer , this includes being optimistic, enthusiasm, adventurous, honest, outspoken and independent. Now Sagittarius energy is very positive , it’s all about shooting your arrow ( like the senator that represents the sign ) at targets , making goals moving towards them, you are feeling quiet capable, strong, fast and ready to hit the targets.

Optimism, passion and positivity is a main feature to focus on this month when creating your intentions.  Sagittarius is a fire sign, and that relates to life purpose and creativity. Not to mention the New Moon happens in 7 degrees and the number 7 is all about creativity and mind-set. But don’t forget the darker side of this star sign, they tend to over do it, think in such big terms they over do expectations and shy away from relationships to be independent but not care if  feelings are bruised along the way.

So take time to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to try to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon or within 24 hours.Keep it simple,use the positive energies of Sagittarius and incorporate them in when you  write down what you wish to begin, create, and increase in the upcoming cycle.


Happy New Moon Day

The Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces.

The New Moon leaves Sagittarius today and enters Capricorn it sextiles  Jupiter in Libra, it conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries and conjunts Mercury in Sagittarius.


Today we see a shift from yesterdays energy were it was all about you to today were the focus is on others. Today is a great day to work with others , Look for the best possible outcome when working with others.

The New Moon leaves Sagittarius today and enters Capricorn. The Moon sextiles Jupiter in Libra, it conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries and conjunts Mercury in Sagittarius. Today the energy is very much about moving ahead! On the one hand you will want to do everything in a personal , unique way and on the other hand you will be interested in building positive harmonious relationships with others . Today this is the duality you will be faced with , YES we are all moving forward but which option will be the best for “me” should i go with option A or is option B more to my liking. Will you be a team player today or stick with yourself and that the real  question you need to ask yourself today!

The Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. This dreamy connection with the Sun can be a temporary drain of energy , as the our conscious self creates tension with the planet of mysticism and illusion. Now it is time to let go of unrealistic aspects of that dream in order to begin a more elevated dream especially with the New Moon energy still in play. Begin to consider what you will create out of the cycle you are beginning to release now. This Sun/Neptune aspect is not a good time to make hard and fast decisions, instead go with the flow of the day ,allow yourself to dream, to envision use this time to meditate.

If you are struggling with keeping a positive mind set today with all this energy flying around, then this is the right time to make a commitment to yourself, while we are still in the New Moon phase. You still have time to write your New Moon intentions if you have not already! Happy New Moon writing.

Have a great day

The Moon is in Scorpio until the afternoon EST, after which it transits in fun-loving Sagittarius. So there is a real sense of adventure ,enthusiasm and excitement the air.Today you will be hitting the ground running,g its a very positive day and a great way to start the week off .

The Moon is in its Balsamic phase today,and with a New Moon in Sagittarius occurring tomorrow morning, we’re better off tying up loose ends, finishing up projects than beginning something brand new. New Moons are a time for us to set our intentions and get clear on what we want from the month ahead.  Today is a great day to reflect over the past month.

Moon in Libra.

Venus is in Capricorn and it squares Jupiter in Libra.

  Jupiter in Libra conjunts Pluto in Capricorn.

Today in my eyes is the best day of the week . Today there is potential for massive transformation in your personal relationships! This is because Venus is in Capricorn and it squares Jupiter in Libra and then conjunts Pluto in Capricorn.

Pluto is the planet of change, transformation see it as the phoenix rising from the ashes, and this is BIG. This isn’t about little changes in your relationships, this energy is about taking your relationships and really solidify it and be together. If some of you have been in an unhappy relationship for a while this could be the transformation that could push you to makes changes.. whether it’s for the good or the bad it can go either way. Are you unhappy?do need that cosmic push to leave an unhappy relationship or do you need that confirmation that yes… yes this is the one and i am happy! Ignoring the fears and all the doubts of the ego . But ultimately today its a positive change.

Just remember what comes up today could equally be passion, excitement or even obsession.

Have a great day, and an amazing weekend
