Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde, and yes it moved back into Aries last week where it will stay in this sign until May 16th (Although Mercury’s retrograde will end on May 3rd).

Mercury Retrograde is great at helping bring to our attention those shadow parts of us, parts we may of felt that didn’t need healing. Mercury retrograde is great at highlighting where the healing lies and the truth can be found. In Mercury Retrograde communication, travel, technology, equipment, travel and contracts can be upside down, backwards, misinterpreted, breakdowns and unnecessary disagreements occur.

At work, you can find yourself frustrated even though you’re sure that you’ve explained yourself clearly, people around you do the opposite and your fail-proof computer crashes. You experience equipment and mechanical breakdowns of all types even at home, when out and your car!

Mercury does rule the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression so all these over this period can become  unreliable, filled with misinformation where important data is missing or misunderstood. During this period we should watch for too hasty communications as Mercury rules our communications and thought process and well in Aires we can become very direct ,assertive and self-centered. Say what must be said but try to remember to do so with kindness and compassion.

Mercury Retrograde in Aires gives us the courage to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What curve balls have you been dealing with over the past month? What repetitive issues seem to be surfacing? Career, a friendship, your living circumstance, a draining relationship?

If you  have found yourself or parts of yourself being exposed, and in order to work on yourself you are stressed you must remember that you also need to love yourself unconditionally. When there is a lot going on give yourself some space, as much as the mind wants order, you will find when too much is going on we get agitated and stressed. When there is times of stress you must remember you are feeling a lot of things, so give yourself some space. Give yourself permission to experience those emotions instead of categorising it, organising it. Just let what needs to be revealed,happen. In these topsy upside and can be dark days of stress and frustration use your energy and see the small joys and blessing in your day. Even though you may be suffering and want to go on strike, see the small happy moments in the day and the lesson in the bad situations! Don’t stuff your feelings away,

The discomfort  and madness we are going through and experience on any level in Mercury Retrograde or not there is a choice to choose love and happiness! You can love someone and be mad, you can be frustrated but still caring, go with the flow, be present to everything that’s going on during this period, and don’t disqualify it because there is discomfort!! It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.

Full Moon in Cancer 12/01/2017

This is an action packed Full Moon, it is igniting the Cardinal Grand Cross this energy will continue until 2020. The Full Moon in Cancer at 22 degrees opposes the Sun in Capricorn in 22 degrees. This Full Moon energy is about putting yourself and people first.

We have the first Full Moon of 2017 happening this week on Thursday and it is at 22o in the lovely sign of Cancer. I wont lie this will be very intense with the cardinal grand cross and the Moon in Cancer it makes for a very intense, emotional, sensitive and intuitive time. The Full Moon is fully illuminated and the Sun and the Moon are 180 o apart. The Moon shines it illuminating light on us and influences us the most powerfully and because it’s in the sign of Cancer it will be showering down Cancers energy. Its power will be strong as it is sitting in its ruling sign. The Moon is ruled be Cancer so its energy will be heightened, it feels at home in this sign. Cancer is a cardinal water sign so we need to be taking charge of our emotions , loyalty, family, intuition,feelings, bonds and connections with our self and others, creativity,all the intangible aspects of life. This week we will be flooded with all these aspects and all the emotional things surrounding us. This week we will really feel what life is about , this includes really feeling what our relationships truly are both personally and business . This week we are going to be forced to feel our feelings so those of you in denial will not have a good week.

Take note if you are an earth sign as you may struggle! Earth signs generally don’t like major change or over the top emotional displays for no particular reason.. However we are all human beings, we all have feelings and sometimes we need to have a massive surge of emotions to get it all out of our system, clear the emotional decks and most importantly, it is how we go about change. Change does not just happen by sitting at home and saying everything is OK, I am safe and lets keep things the way they are ( which is what most earth signs would like) However this is a Full Moon in Cancer and feelings will arise,  people will experience strong intense feelings and intense urges to express themselves.

What needs changing? what needs to be released? what needs to be emotionally balanced?

This First Full Moon of 2017 is in a sign that is all about self-care. Cancer is all about taking care of you, nurturing you. Cancer energy  is all about your foundation, how you nourish and nurture yourself, how you love yourself,  how you take care of you. This month self reflect and ask yourself.. are you kind enough to yourself? Do you make sure that your needs are meet? Do you have enough sleep? exercise? You time? The Calling of this month is to focus on extreme self-care.

The Full Moon is at 22 degrees. Now 22 is the master number of the builder, so all this emotional upheaval does have a purpose. Something that is going to be presented to you and for some it may happen in an uncomfortable way , feelings will come up and some feelings may surprise you , For some past emotional  issues that  you may have locked away or thought yo had dealt with will arise , it will be waving in your face and screaming ” Hello im here acknowledge me please ” It is important to feel these feelings, to acknowledge them this emotional reality is the key to what will happen to you through out the year to . This Full Moon will force you to do something, so take some time , think things through this week it is not a great time to make plans and take action. Instead it s a time to go deep and sit with your feelings, hear them as this will help us create change. The master number of the builder  tells us that the significant changes that come out of this Full Moon will affect us for a while, I am talking the big changes such as who we love, where we work , where you live.

So take some time, be in this present moment and figure out what will give you security? What will give you joy? What needs releasing? What patterns need to be broken order for you to grow? What habits need to be released in order for you to better nurture yourself?

Happy Full Moon

Thursday December 1st, 2016.

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

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.

Pluto Venus semi-square Pluto

Venus moves into Sagittarius

The Moon in Gemini

Venus moves out of Scorpio and enters Sagittarius this morning. Venus  will continue to transit in Sagittarius until November 11th. Scorpio was all about romantic energy  and now it moves into the fire sign that is all about fun-loving and to be care free, it goes from intensity to lightness. Venus in Sagittarius loves to be free, to expand, explore and travel..Sagittarius, of course, has a shadow side and has its intense moments, considering it is a fire sign, being non-committal and a need for freedom at the expense of others. Venus in Sagittarius is a universal love for everyone, and less focused on one person, unlike Scorpio which is about focusing on intimacy with on specific relationship. Romantic adventures and doing things outside of your comfort zone will be highlight for the next few weeks, along with a blunt, straightforward approach to love, which can be fine as long as it’s not at the expense of someones else feelings.

Venus forms a semi-square with Pluto today. Feelings of  jealousies and possessiveness can emerge . This influence can bring to the surface tensions in relationships or social interactions that may be underlying.. If feelings of jealousy or suspiciousness run close to the surface today to the point were you can feel the heat rising, just take a step back, breath and know that these are coming from the ego and projecting them self as a fear of loosing someone or something. Sometimes, this transit brings up emotions of unreciprocated , unappreciated feelings in love or past hurts of romantic disappointment. Avoid power plays with friends, lovers and business partners today! Nurturer yourself , love yourself today, retreat and watch a movie alone and try to have some quality ME time. Avoid tempers running high, so think twice before sending that nasty text message or email…

The Moon enters Gemini today. Gemini is all about mental energy and its ruling planet is Mercury so it’s in a communication friendly position, the day has the potential to feel like it is going very quickly.

Have a great day

The Moon in Taurus

Sun sesquiquadrate Neptune

This week starts off very gentle and with humility, it’s almost like we are dreamers wanting to make things happen for our self. It is important that we manage our expectations, be there for yourself and work through the energy as some may be sensitive and emotional nature your inner self.

The Moon moves into Taurus all day. Taurus is the sign that is all about simple sensual pleasures in life. Today we aware of our need to enjoy eating, basking, relaxation, drinking and canoodling. The Moon rules food and well Taurus loves food so they go well together just watch out for falling into old habits and overindulge and over eat! Today some may resist change and fall back into old patterns under this influence. With this no rush and relaxed energy about today it does not stop you in achieving a lot today. Taurus is also about cash flow and abundance so if you steady yourself and plot along working on increasing your money and abundance with visualizations and action plans the Tarsus Moon will help you in your quest.

The Sun sesquiquadrate Neptune. This has a blinding effect and we can temporarily lose focus, our will power can be low and we can temporarily stray away from our goals. Artistic and spiritual pursuits will be easier to tackle than straightforward factual goals today and tomorrow. This aspect makes it difficult for some to stick to or formulate clear, reasonable goals, so if you are beating yourself up mentally because you seem to be foggy, just put those plans on the back burner until midweek.It’s also a challenge knowing where we stand with others. Don’t take things to heart today!

Venus  forms a semi-square with Pluto today and tomorrow.This has the tendency  to make some search  for something wrong in a relationship, business or personal . This aspect has a way to make darker emotions arise so try to not act upon them, as nobody likes it when  jealousy raises its ugly head.

The light of the Full Moon is still illuminating our skies. This can illuminate and shine light on areas of our life that may need changing. At this time we disperse our knowledge and dig deep, working out what works for us and what needs changing in preparation for next week’s New Moon. We must make room for what we want to manifest in our lives!It’s also a time to begin finishing up the details of that which we formulated and created  at the last New Moon.Remember Full Moons are generally not a good time to start a new major project.

Have a great day

The Moon in Sagittarius

The Moon will square with Neptune in Pisces and align with Saturn in Sagittarius

The  Moon is in adventurous Sagittarius all day. When the Moon and Sagittarius meet it can   stimulate a desire for more than ordinary daily experiences. We become more upbeat and are attracted to new situations of conquest. We clear away the cobwebs and search for adventure. Tired of the mundane lifestyle,we will require less prompting to lash out and break our normal routine, experiencing life in a fun new way is appealing now.

The Moon will square with Neptune in Pisces and align with Saturn in Sagittarius. This can make people susceptible to moaning and become irritable, as we may be wrestling with practicality and imagination and trying to find balance in our expectations. Saturn may be hovering over the Moon today whispering the potential hazards of her new-found spark for adventures, but remember Saturn  doesn’t really want to stop you going on an adventure. Saturn energy is reminding you to check the details, check your reasons before launching into the unknown. Today is a great day  to mingle with others and enjoy ourselves in the process.

Today  we will find our intuitive messages will be strong and very spot on. This will motivate us to take practical action and help us build more positive harmonious loving life . With Neptune the dreamy planet inspiring us  we are looking at our futures, looking ahead, we are very intelligent in our future prosperity options. Today we will have a laser beam focus , very clear and sharp on what we want for our lives. So think about your future today, think about how you can bring in more love and harmony , how can you reduce drama and negativity.

 

Have a great day

15/8/16 Monday Madness

Monday august 15th 2016

Happy Monday… Today will be a great day , any actions we take today will go down very well. Problems will be solved easily today as the Moon is in Capricorn all day. Capricorn is a no-nonsense sign, grounded, its practical, realistic and goal orientated.

The Moon trines Virgo in Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn today. Pluto in Capricorn allows for change through practicality, change through letting go of old ways of thinking and being sensible and grounded in your new thought process, change through putting the effort in today.  The Moon also tines Mercury in Virgo and Jupiter in Virgo,  so both of those the planet of communication and the planet of luck  are very receptive to people doing practical concrete  work and when you align yourself with that energy and just get down to nitty gritty and get down to business things will go very well for you.

Finally the Moon squares Uranus in Aries. Uranus is the planet that rules surprise and all things unexpected. Its influence is that of heightened frequencies, unpredictable actions and innovate imagination. Uranus’ influences us to break rules and demolish old patterns creating opportunity for sudden radical change.So today there is going to be a fiery spark in the air today, a spark of the unexpected. This gift will only happen  if you put the work in. The universe will surprise you by stepping in and giving you an opportunity as a result of the work you have put in today , something that you would normally never plan for.

Today is a day about getting the work done and reaping the rewards.

This is a Full Moon and a Luna Eclipse week, so some of you may be feeling the build up of the of Luna energies.  Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy some may feel emotional, impulsive, quick to snap, unable to sleep and well some may see others acting out.

Have a great day

12/8/16 Daily Grind

Friday August 12th, 2016

The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Jupiter in Virgo is in  opposition Chiron.

Pluto the king of the Underworld, of death and rebirth, New beginnings and endings, the wounded healer will be creating an oppositional energy with Jupiter the planet of good fortune, positivity and growth. This can be a time when we find ourselves hungry for understanding and meaning, but because these energies are opposing we may find it difficult to align our personal beliefs systems with philosophical truth that reflects our core self. Something might happen today that challenges our core beliefs, and the universe will make us  aware of it

Chiron opposing Jupiter can be a great time for healing wounds that we may have burred deep down and refused to acknowledge, unearth these past pains is the key , instead of running from it come to terms with the outcome and try living with them in a harmonious way  is the key right now.

Today some of us may  feel alone in our quests,in our personal visions, opinions, or plans for the future, as others may not see eye to eye and may not  seem to understand your vision. But just go with the flow and try and use the Moon in Sagittarius Fun, free, adventourous energy  to see past any  discrepancies.

Today rather than blindly following something that doesn’t truly serve our purpose, it is important for us to look within and come to a greater understanding of what we truly need or believe.

Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus today and tomorrow. This can influence some of us to be uncertain about the desire to be close to someone. We will evaluate the importance of freedom versus closeness.

Have a great Friday and a even better weekend guys.

QUARTER MOON INTO SAGITTARIUS

Today the Moon moves s into fiery, fun-loving, adventurous Sagittarius. So if today we feel like blowing off some steam or have the need to overindulge our selfs and let our hair down   today is the day.

Life is an adventure today

With the Moon in Sagittarius and a Moon in Mars conjunction happening tonight our emotions can be hot and fiery today.  It’s important to not take any hasty  action or to be instanly over reactive because it could cost you right now. Today having fun and light-hearted healthy outlets is the key.

Jupiter enters Virgo today so over the next week is good for making adjustments as we lead into the Full Moon. Jupiter is the planet of good luck and fortune, but is also the ruler of over indulging and loves excess.  So remember being adventurous and carefree is one thing but being reckless is another…

Quarter Moon energy can make us feel compelled to take action. So whatever New Moon wishes we made last week should be off the ground, get your list out re read them and see what intentions you can take action on.

So today, Have a laugh, be playful, dont over react and go with the flow

Have a great day .
