The Sun conjuncts Pluto.
The Moon enters Pisces.
Today brings with it a necessary need to take action on a significant issue or situation. On January 9, 2018, the annual cycle between the Sun and Pluto began. This is a cycle is one of intense self empowerment. What with any change it can bring about either destruction or the growth of your full potential. This influence can drive us in many directions, and we may feel lost in the process, pulled into different directions, question whether you start a fresh or move in a new direction. If powerful forces are working against you, try to be fully conscious of exactly where you plant your feet today. look for the support of people you love and just be cautious as this energy can stir up a lot of restlessness.
Your loved ones need you more than you may realize today. Make yourself available.
By lunchtime the Moon enters dreamy and sensitive Pisces. Whatever the issues that are arising, with this much softer energy that is coming through, your problems will look a lot less harsh and uncompromising as you regain your emotions throughout the day! A lovely overlay of a gentle, soft and surreal presence enters to soften the blow on any hard times.
Happy Hump Day!

Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn.
Mercury in Retrograde in Aires.
Today brings a powerful transit between Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. This transit will cause tension and friction between the planet of love and finances and the lord of the underworld and change! This means there will be intensity and possible turmoil in our relationships over the next 3 days! If anything, this will demonstrate the importance of deep change and the importance of getting out of our own way and seeing all sides to any story or argument in your loving relationships. Issues or stuff that we are not looking for at the moment can arise right now. Thanks to Mercury Retrograde, everything is being brought up to the surface for healing, whether we like it or not!
This is not all bad! If you are in a less than stable, unhealthy partnership, where you finally realize your own self-worth this could bring the final break or push you need to make a change. On the other, if you are in a balanced healthy relationship this transit could give you that extra push to bring up those little things that have been bugging you lately! Welcome this change to occur so that we can move forward in a positive way (although at the time it may seem like a curse, but you will see the blessing in the lesson soon enough).
As I have mentioned it is Mercury retrograde be acutely aware of how you are communicating between yourself and your loved ones. Allow yourself to loosen your grip as power play dynamics and control issue will come into play and will be very strong! Just steer clear of this and especially let go of trying to control every situation, being pushy, playing a victim, don’t get jealous, don’t give into power dynamics, or obsessing and becoming very possessive.
The reality is that you can’t control others full stop! Release your attachment to the outcome.
With Venus in Aires and Mercury retrograde this is also not a time to make new financial investments, Even if the attraction is intensely powerful
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

The Sun moves out of Pisces and into Aries.
The Moon is in Taurus.
The Spring and Autumn equinox
Today marks the Spring/ Autumn equinox. Depending where you are in this lovely world. Spring in the northern hemisphere and fall/autumnal equinox in the southern hemisphere.
As I live in Australia its our Autumn Equinox. Autumn holds not only a physical change of the weather and land, but holds a spiritually unique place within all of us. Autumn isn’t about death and decay of our surroundings its more than that! It is about change and endings. Endings not just of seasons but of our inner and outer world.
Remember every journey must find its end, crops are harvested, plants wither and even as the natural world begins to fade before us, we make sure to align ourselves to the progression and change of the seasons furthermore our self internally. This is a great time to have a self review, figure out what needs changing or letting go of! What is blocking you or getting in your way? Let it wither like nature around you.
For all you guys up north the Spring Equinox is a about new beginnings, a magical exciting time of planting seeds, setting intentions and starting new cycles, with the added bonus of the New Moon energy you really can make positive changes and achieve your dreams.
The Moon moves into a more steady and solid place today as she transits into reliable, grounded Taurus. Making it a great day to enjoying creature comforts, over doing it on food, wine and focusing on what things you can bring into your life that would make you happier and more comfortable! Beauty and safety is the key today!
The Sun moves out of Pisces and into Aries. As the Sun makes her entrance into Aries our self and ego will get an extra boost of strength, leadership, will power, shine. We may become more dominant and want to take charge. No obstacle will stand in our way or our power! However, on the shadow side of this “go and get them sign” becoming overly ambitious, having too much pride, overly self-expressional and disregarding others opinions and feelings. we also tend to become very confident and cocky. This sign is very much “I am therefore I am” and it always comes back to me, myself and I. Take the good and balance it out with the rest! Be strong but no forceful, be a leader not a dictator.
The shift is palpable for everyone!

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

The moon is in Taurus.
The Moon in grounded Taurus and it brings to us a stable, earthy energy to the day. Today some of you are inclined to stick with what we know, Taurus hates change and love to keep the status quo, along with keeping things simple. Taurus is ruled by romantic Venus and this allows us to connect you fully to your physical body, find the things you love about your self and appreciate them , feel sensual today. The Moon in Taurus means it’s a great day to rest, pamper yourself. Get a massage, enjoy the naughty things in life-like a good meal,take a bath, or make love. buying something pretty that make you happy or indulge in comfort food as this self-love helps stabilize emotions by us connecting with the body.
Some handy affirmations when we have Taurus energy around is ‘Thank you, Universe/ god/angels etc – I am safe, wise, happy, I am worthy and all my needs are provided for! Another good one is , I attract all the abundance and wealth I need and i am financially stable.
Another great idea is to head out into nature, go for a bush walk, a beach walk a lake walk. Simple putting your bare feet on the ground helps ground us and our energy.
Hows your New Years resolutions coming along??
Happy Friday and Happy New Year.

The Moon is in Pisces.
Neptune goes Retrograde.
This is a time for the energy to be easing up a little, as the Moon spends the day in dreamy Pisces and aligns with Pisces’ modern ruler, Neptune, which is stationing retrograde today.
Neptune is the planet of dreams and inspiration, it is a water planet. It is represented as King Neptune in mythology the ruler of the seas and is related to the high priestess in the tarot. So with all this water energy , Neptune rules our dreams, emotions, intuition and in particularity our ability to manifest . We will have access to all the universal knowledge and being in touch with your collective unconscious. We are passive and ready to receive those message, gut feels and that wisdom of the universe.
When Neptune stations retrograde the energy seems to go backwards, which means it is even more passive. What happens is that you become more intuitive, you become in tune with your own self and the spiritual and creative guidance you receive will increase. You will have the capability to hear the messages meant for you from the universe loud and clear , heightened insights , heightened receptivity and guidance for the next coming 5 months,until November 22nd pretty awesome hay! The rest of the year really tune in , listen to the guidance that is being given to you, dreams, repetitive thoughts, feelings, ideas, this is the key to getting the best out of 2017!
Over the next 5 months we see a rise in personal creativity and output. let the creative juices flow and inspiration energy is high, so pay attention all you writers, artist and healers. Those who work with the spiritual realm, if you feel that you are one that can channel spiritual information do so! Especially when it comes to putting into your work, projects and art.
However, Neptune governs the veils but he also governs the mists of confusion.The retrograde cycle can be a time of indecision or feeling in limbo, but it can also be a period of inner discovery. This can also be a period of time a sensitive and perhaps confusing one.
Happy day dreaming!

Photos taken by me last night 14/11/16 could not of asked for a better night! Life is magical xx
Sunshine is the medicine for the soul… If you are anything like me, an empath, the cure to burning off other people’s energy is a good dose of sunshine. For me being in nature especially at the beach and in the sunshine makes my soul whole again.
Being a nurse I pick up and take on others invisible energy and emotions. It doesn’t help that my Star sign is cancerian either… But part of my life lesson , as I am learning ( the hard way sometimes) is how to remove excess and unwanted energy from myself and my aura, and furthermore learning to figure out what are my emotions and what are other people’s emotions I’m feeling and taking aboard. So grounding is a very important part of my life. I have always been drawn to the water and the beach and now as I reflect back on my life I’ve always lived next to the beach or near a mountain and if I couldn’t be near these parts of nature I felt lost, something was missing, floating in a place that I didn’t enjoy.
I am so very blessed to live with the beach at the end of my street, so every weekend I get up and have my morning coffee or smoothie on the beach and just sit with my feet in the sand and recharge, reflect and regain my energy!
Each weekday I ride my bike along the beach side to work and in that ten minutes ride, my problems , my thoughts all melt away and I think how lucky we are to have such beauty in this world. The sun that shines, even in the darkest of days , it’s still in the sky giving light and life energy, the ocean glistening, waves rolling onto the shore without hesitation or failure. The clean air I breath, all the wonderfull animals i coexist with, along with all the life around me. In those moments I am one with everyone and everything in this universe… Such bliss!
The pull to her is irresistible…. I could spend hours photographing her! Mesmerised by her beauty.. To think the dinosaurs stared and marvelled at the same moon 🌙
