Hip Hooray!!

Mercury Moves Direct!

The Moon is in Leo.

The Moon sextiles Jupiter and trines Mercury.

Today Mercury moves direct, its been retrograde now for the past several weeks and being that Mercury is the planet that represents the way we think, communicate, ,share information and all sorts. When it stations retrograde all these areas of our life get turned upside down, this also includes electrical equipment, emails, computers, cars, and especially misunderstandings and mishaps with dealing and communicating with others. Now that Mercury moves direct today all these areas will become easier! So it’s officially safe to sign that new home contract,time to begin new projects, sign that new lease, book travel plans and breathe a sigh of relief that you wont be repeating yourself and also in general we can start to move forward more easily in every area of our life.

Today we also see the Moon in Leo. The Moon than sextiles Jupiter in Libra and trines Mercury in Aires. We  see a major shift from Mercury being in retrograde and faulty to being direct and in the sign of Aires who is very forward and direct, aggressive and very excited and pushy to communicate.

Enjoy the day and happy communicating!

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.

The Moon is in Aires.

Mercury trines Saturn.

Good morning, Happy Monday.

Today there is a fiery energy and a sense of drive and power around today. The Moon goes into Aires, Mercury is in Aires and that than trines Saturn in Sagittarius. Powerful start to this week and you will be full of energy, motivation and ready to get things done its time to put your ideas into practice today.

Today brings a lovely link between the planet of thoughts and communication Mercury, and the Master planet of lessons Saturn. When Mercury is stationed retrograde, it gives us an opportunity to review and re commit,even tie up loose ends especially with the New Moon approaching us this week.  Mercury/Saturn is great for being grounded, rational and practical and hardheaded in our communications.

As we move towards the New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday, you should really be   starting to think about what you want. Also going over and review last months list, thanking the universe for delivering what we needed we should also be working out and making it clear on what intentions you wish to bring about this month.

Have a great day.

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.

Friday 20th January, 2017.

The Moon is in Scorpio

Venus forms a sextile with Pluto.

 

The Moon is in Scorpio all day, So lets proceed today with passion! We can also find ourselves approaching the day with some intensity and purpose. Direct this fiery day towards positive projects and people.

As the Moon moves through secretive, sassy Scorpio we will also see Venus the planet of love and abundance connecting with Pluto. However we should be aware and watch out for the strong urge to unhealthy over express love or even obsess, as the energy   is in the air today.

Venus forms a sextile with Pluto today. This can point out new strategic approaches to our money and relationships, it also give us comfortable new insights into our personal and business partnerships that leave us feeling good inside.

With the Moon in Scorpio and Venus in Pluto we can expect to be in a generally pleasant and positive mood, and be more focused and intense in our dealings with loved ones and people we meet. This is also a good time to tap into our darker side and embrace the more taboo things in life. Today  also has great energy around financial abundance, wealth, romance and the love for the finer things in life.

Happy Friday and have a great day

The Moon is in harmonious Libra.

Mars squares with Saturn.

The Moon is in harmonious Libra all day. We will want to find balance and harmony in our relationships. Early in the day, we see Mars form a quincunx with Jupiter. This aspect is all about demanding, adjustments, and expectations  in our approach to pursuing our desires and dreams.

Mars squares with Saturn this week, which can leave us with an explicitly challenging aspect when it comes to the way we approach our day. The actions we take, along with how we assert our self-will be impacted today . We may feel stuck or blocked in what would normally seem effortlessly for us,  especially in regards to our dreams. Our desires and hopes may present as being more complicated with this aspect in play. Certain challenges will arise today and we can find our self not responding to them in our usual manner.

Have a great day.

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

The Moon is in Pisces

Venus enters Pisces.

By this morning, we will all wake up to number of planets in the dreamy sign of  Pisces. The Moon joins Neptune and Mars is in Pisces and, we see Venus leave independent Aquarius and also enter sensitive mystical Pisces. When such a gathering of planets in one sign occurs, it is good to pay attention to what the Universe is teaching you through the energy of this sign, Where does Pisces sit in your birth chart?

Venus enters Pisces today January 3rd until February 3rd.When Venus is in Pisces  allow your intuition to guide you in matters of love and the heart, money, and beauty. Dreamy Pisces rarely sees the world in black and white it embraces all the colours of the rainbow and this will be the same in our love life this month. We are  seducible and seductive, compassionate and creative, we are able to forgive and understand.We are open and creative and have an intuitive approach to money, the pursuit of pleasure, love,beauty and art.

The shadow side of Venus in Pisces there is a longing for something that is hard to define and hard to satisfy. Our reality can be blurred and we enter into a position that allows ourselves to be victimized or act deluded,our borders and boundaries are blur under this influence.

 

Have a great day! Happy New Year!

Monday December 19th, 2016.

Mercury in Capricorn goes into retrograde.

Mars into Pisces.

Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Capricorn today, it will remain retrograde until January 8th. This is the last time Mercury will be retrograde for the year and seeing it is in Capricorn it is a great time to revisit any plans that involve. Mercury is all about the way we think and when it’s in practical Capricorn we are in a good position to reevaluate professional or life path plans and goals. We may have little tolerance for small talk, as Capricorn isn’t about small nonsense chitchat. Today as Mercury stations itself, there can be cloudy thinking, judgment and misunderstandings. Think before you react today as you or someone you cross paths with today may be affected.

Mercury retrograde makes it harder for us and others to communicate ideas,plans and the message we want to get across. Travel can be thrown off, flights delayed, travel plans can be challenging, which over Christmas can be difficult, so allow yourself plenty of time and pre plan for minor mishaps to happen print your itinerary and ticket and double-check ticket time. Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, and is best used for re-organizing, reflecting and reworking old plan.

Mars moves out of Aquarius and enters Pisces this morning, where it will transit until January 28th. Mars into Pisces shifting the warrior, our ambition and drive from air to water. When Mars the fire-red planet goes into the watery sign of Pisces we tend to be less motivated to pursue traditional goals and be more inclined to pursue spiritual emotional goals. Our drive and energy can be up and down like the tides of an ocean during this aspect we take an intuitive approach to pursuing our desires. Mars in Pisces is a symbol of the Spiritual warrior so try to focus your energy on a spiritual, mystical and creative journey over the next few weeks.

Have a great day
