Super Blue Blood Moon x Leo

(Art – IG @ketnipz)

Everything is teaching us something. Everything is giving us choices and opportunities. Everything happens for a reason.

Our task, as humans having this life experience, is simply that, to have a life experience.

So the question is, what are we experiencing?

What are we choosing to experience?

How are we choosing to experience things?

 

At every moment we have a choice, and the best possible choice we can make, is in service to our highest selves; the choice that feels the best, that resonates at a deep core level.

It’s so easy to move through the world completely unaware or ourselves and our surroundings. It’s how we’ve been programmed. Buy this and you’ll be happy, look like this and you’ll be happy, go here and you’ll be happy. Media, marketing, music – it’s all in our face, all the time. Telling us to go this way and that way; but just like the donkey & the carrot, the destination / the prize keeps moving further & further ahead.

What if we could stop for a moment, get quiet with ourselves, and assess the state of our lives, our own happiness and fulfilment?

What if we could be honest with ourselves, about who we are, and the ways in which we may have been selling ourselves short as we move through the world?

What if we could truly reach our fullest potential, achieve our craziest far-out dreams, and live lives that absolutely fill us up, each & every day?

Well, buckle your seat-belts homies, cos we are in for a big one this week.

This next full moon is also a supermoon, a blue moon, and a total lunar eclipse, happening in the fire sign of Leo.

A “FULL” moon happens when the sun & moon are directly opposite in our skies, highlighting conflict or opposition between our head (the sun) & hearts (the moon).

A “SUPER” moon means that the moon is closest to the earth in her elliptical orbit, so she is brighter in our skies and her energetic pull is stronger.

A “BLOOD” moon is another way of saying that this will be a total lunar eclipse, which happens when the earth is between the sun and the moon, so the earth’s shadow falls over the moon’s surface, tinging her red in our skies.

And a “BLUE” moon means this is our second full moon of the calendar month. With our first falling on 2 January 2017, and no full moons next month during February, this is a pretty rare occurrence.

So, what does all that mean for us?

 

With the moon (our emotions) in leo, the ultimate ego sign, and the sun (our ego) in aquarius, the sign of the collective, the interconnectedness of our inner & outer worlds is up for review. As with all polarity points on the zodiac wheel, we are asked to find the balance, to find the sweet spot here on Earth, smack bang in the middle of it all. To be here now.

 

“As above, so below.”

My favourite one-liner. Our inner worlds and outer worlds are reflections of one another. The chaos and pain we see playing out collectively across the globe, is a mirror manifestation of that which we are each individually feeling and healing within.

All is being brought up to be seen, both in our personal lives and the wider reality. It all must be faced, and must be loved, before it can be released.

And that’s what an eclipse is ultimately about.

Eclipsing something out.

Releasing.

Setting ourselves free.

 

“To heal the world we must first heal ourselves.” 

This full moon lunar eclipse completes a cycle initiated 6 months ago, with the new moon solar eclipse that happened in leo in early August last year.

Think back, recall, what we have been moving through since then? How have our lives changed? Both internally and externally?

How are we a reflection of our environment? Those people, places, or things we give our time to? What influences are we open to, either conscious or otherwise?

How is our environment a reflection of us? What are the moments of happiness, tension, or anxiety, truly mirroring back to us? Where is the joy? Where is the pain?

We must dig deeper, ask ourselves why we feel the way we feel, and then take action accordingly.

 

We mustn’t rush, we must tread slowly, mindfully. With gratitude and love to ourselves and each other as we navigate these waters, individually and together.

Too often we are focused on the end goal, and in the rush to get there we forget the point, that it’s meant to be fun!

We’re meant to enjoy ourselves along the way!

This month’s eclipse is highlighting the above with aspects to Jupiter (abundance, growth, expansion) and Venus (beauty, joy, sensual enjoyment).

So kick back, take a breath, take stock.

Thank yourself, thank the universe, thank your guides.

And have some fun! Make some magic! BE YOU! Be your best & brightest self. Let your light shine for all to see. And watch how the world changes before your very eyes, into the world of your dreams.

ARIES

What will you do today, to live in alignment with your higher self?

SANAT KUMARA – Light Activation

  • “Shine your light. Your internal guidance is coming through loud & clear.”
  • Sanat Kumara, which means “Eternal Youth”, is an advanced cosmic light being who is dedicated to helping the Earth rise up towards the light. He is, as far as I’m concerned, the leader of the Keepers of the Light. He has been acknowledged as a god in Hinduism and in the Mahabharata  story, which has come down from heaven bearing God’s divine plan. In more recent times he has been acknowledged as coming from Venus and bringing through unconditional love. He has eyes that are made of the cosmos, with the ability to penetrate the soul and activate its brightest light yet. He can seem otherworldly because his looks are beyond human. He is a being of light, shining with the purest intentions. His twin flame is Lady Venus. Together they activate the heart and light of those who welcome their help so they can shine brighter than ever.
  • You are here to light up the world. You may feel that you are being pushed or that there is a lot going on at once, and this is because your energy is magnetic to others and they want it in their life. Take the time to listen to your inner voice. Remember the cosmic light of heaven and draw it into you. That is all you need to do to inspire the world.

 

TAURUS

Where are you playing small in your life? In what ways could you shine bigger and brighter?

KRISHNA – Devotion

  • “Trust your spiritual guidance. Your commitment has been recognised. You are loved unconditionally.”
  • Krishna is a Hindu god who is known as Mahavatar (great avatar) and embodies divine wisdom. One of India’s best-loved gods, he is an approachable, kind, loving and supportive guide. He is a peaceful being with a great love for all people and animals. He is often depicted with a calf or a lamb, which is a symbol of innocence, and a peacock feather on his head, which is said to honour the divine feminine. He was the spiritual guide of the warrior soul Arjuna, as related in the Hindu epic Bhagavad Gita (which really is a story of choosing love over fear), and helps us move beyond the limitations and wars our ego creates in our mind, and maybe even in the world around us. His twin flame is Radha.
  • You have a deep spiritual connection and must trust the guidance that’s coming through. Your devotion to the spiritual path has been recognised. It may feel as if you’ve been on a mental/emotional battlefield, but there are sweet messages of hope around you now. Krishna is here to boost your sense of connection to the divine and encourage you to act from your soul. If a decision needs to be made, ask yourself what will honour your soul and those around you. If you can choose the best for all involved then you will feel even closer to the divine.

 

GEMINI

What kind of music brings you to life? Are there any singers or musicians who move your soul?

THE MYRIAM – Sacred Vision

  • “Choose to forgive in order to heal. See the light in all. Remember that love has no boundaries.”
  • The Myriam, which means ‘the Beloved’, are twin flame angels who come as one. They are mirror images of each other. They are the angels who appeared to Mary Magdalene in the tomb of Jesus after his passing. These angels spoke directly to Mary and helped her move beyond her grief so that she was able to commune with Jesus once more. They can help us move beyond the cloud of grief too. They heal grievances of all kinds, including ones that have been created by religion or the idea that God does not love or accept us because of a mistake we once made. The Myriam help us remember that we don’t need to ask God for forgiveness because ‘he’ never condemned us in the first place.
  • There is a real opportunity for you to move beyond grief or grievance at this time. The Myriam are here, swirling their holy light all around you so that you can regain a sense of union with spirit. You are loved beyond words. Choose to see the light of God in everyone and everything and to love without boundaries. Honour others and honour yourself with your sacred vision. You are in a space of deep healing and forgiveness. Choosing to see the light of the world will help you grow even more.

 

CANCER

Do you make time to play? How do you play and how does this make you feel?

KALI-MA – Facing Fear

  • “Major spiritual changes are unfolding. This is your chance to soar.”
  • Kali-Ma is the Hindu goddess of death and rebirth. She brings old cycles to an end so we can experience transformation. She is a strong, fierce, fiery and powerful image of the divine feminine. Many have been intimidated by her, but she is a mother energy and therefore completely loving – she’s like a fierce mother protecting her child from harm. She has a dark energy like the night sky, but it consumes fear and leaves only love. She is the twin flame of the god Shiva and has even been known to slay his ego so that he can reveal his true loving self.
  • This is a time when you are able to look fear in the eye and move away from it. Fear is just energy, and energy can be changed. This can be an intense experience because the human self is so conditioned that it may be used to operating with fear present. When the fear is gone, it may feel as though an emptiness is there, but this is space for love and miracles to enter. You are being filled with the courage of spirit now so that you can move from this phase of your life to the next. Trust the process and call on Kali-Ma to help you release your fear and step into a space that’s strong, focused and courageous.

 

LEO

Do you notice the energy in and around you? In what ways are you protective or conscious of your energy?

JOAN OF ARC – Voice of Truth

  • “Stand strong. Focus on your purpose. Release the fear of persecution and speak your truth.”
  • Joan of Arc was a medieval French peasant girl who is reported to have been visited by Archangel Michael and other saints, who gave her information on how she could help Charles VII save France from English domination. She was only a teenager when she went into battle for her country and won a huge victory. She was, however, later captured and burned at the stake. These days she is a supremely loving guide to all those who want to stand up against the odds. She also helps many light-workers overcome their fear of persecution.
  • You are being encouraged to stand strong. You may feel unrecognised and misunderstood, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the mission you feel called to fulfil. You must follow the will of your soul and exercise your leadership spirit by speaking your truth. You may feel as if you are on a battlefield, but this conflict will come to an end as soon as you stop defending yourself. You are not here to prove yourself to others. Instead, approve of yourself. Know that your angels are on your side and that heaven is thanking you for being the honest soul you are.

 

VIRGO

What experiences or people are you most grateful for at the moment?

CHARITY – Prayer and Contemplation

  • “Connect with heave. Ask and you shall receive.”
  • Faith, Hope and Charity are a trinity of archangels who are dedicated to helping us regain our natural traits of kindness, trust and faith in the highest good. Charity is the twin flame of Archangel Chamuel. She has a great spirit that encourages us to undertake the spiritual practices of prayer and mediation. Prayer is the way we speak with the divine and mediation is the way we open ourselves to receive the answers we need to hear. Charity is also the angel who kisses the forehead of all those who pray in support of others. She absolutely loves to see this kindness because it creates an inspirational healing wave of goodwill to the world.
  • The powerful Archangel Charity is drawing close to you at this time because she has recognised that you have goodness in your heart and you have put others first. She brings you thanks and support. Move into prayer and mediation with regard to any decisions you have to make at this time. You are being guided to take the time to breathe and receive. Know that you will have a real surge of intuition when it’s time to move forwards. Thank the angels for guiding you towards your highest good, and welcome Charity into the space with you.

 

LIBRA

If you didn’t need to earn money, would you still work or volunteer? What would you do and why?

GAIA – Earth Connection

  • “Be mindful of the planet. Come back to Earth. Stay grounded.”
  • Gaia is Mother Earth. She is the Keeper of the Light who holds the planet in her hands and heart. Her kiss is on every animal’s forehead. She is the life that moves through the plants, the sweetness within the honey, and the force that encourages bees to fly. She loves, protects, and guides all beings. She asks us to love them too. How can we help them? How can we help the planet?
  • You are blessed to receive this Great Mother card today because it shows that the Earth itself, through the image of Gaia, is protecting your path. You are a strong, focused and loving individual. Stay grounded and don’t allow your imagination, ego or fears to run away with you. Ensure your choices are for the highest good. Gaia is also bringing her motherly love to you and encircling you in a cocoon of peace. If you have had troubles with a mother in your own life, or are feeling disconnected from, or grieving your own mother, Gaia helps revitalise that connection and will bring healing where it is possible. If you are a mother and are worrying about these duties, know that Gaia is thanking you for your hard work and commitment. The Earth is blessed to have you.

 

SCORPIO

How can you make today richly soulful, spirited, and special?

THE DIVINE DIRECTOR – Intervention and Purpose

  • “Divine intervention is occurring. Know that you are being guided. Happiness is your purpose.”
  •  The Divine Director is a facet of the heart of the Creator. According to New Thought teaching, his energy is merged directly with God’s divine plan so that we can access it and understand on a deeper level what will support our true function, which is to be happy. The Divine Director works directly with angels, and in particular guardian angels, so that they can fulfil their role of supporting the Earth and all her people. Right now your angels are reminding you that your divine purpose on Earth is to remember how to love and do what makes you happy.
  • Divine intervention is taking place at this time – what is occurring in your life is providing a real learning curve for your soul. You are becoming aware of a sense of purpose in your life. It gives you pleasure rather than something you have to work for. Know that your career can complement your purpose but not define it. But the path you are on at this time is right, and the universe is encouraging you to move forwards.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Do you pray? Who do you pray to? Why is prayer important to you?

ODIN – Psychic Insight

  • “Your third eye is open. See truth for what it is. Follow your intuition.”
  • Odin is the Norse ‘all-father’ god and is revered to the present day. He is a powerful, all-seeing, and all-knowing god. His twin flame is Freya and, like her, he has a raven totem. The story goes that he surrendered one of his eyes at a mystical spring called Mimir so that he could gain the wisdom of the ages. He is a strong but somewhat wild character who helps us reawaken our natural psychic instincts and open our third eye so that we can look beyond the physical senses and into the spiritual realms. He also helps us recognise that it’s okay to have insights into what’s happening next. After all, we are the creators of our own path. Odin guards the runic alphabet, too, and works closely with signs, symbols and omens.
  • You are being encouraged to look beyond what your physical eyes are showing you. Look within and follow your intuition or psychic visions. You may want to plan ahead at this time. It’s important to keep your mind and energy focused on the best possible outcome. There will be signs and symbols from the light to tell you that you are on the right path. Be aware of winged beings gracing your path as a wink from Odin and the light keepers to say that they are honouring your work.

 

CAPRICORN

Where is your life out of balance? Indulge your intuition for a moment and ask your inner self what you need to feel whole, balanced, and well?

FAITH – Humanity and Benevolence

  • “Stay calm. Trust the good in yourself and others. See the light in the world.”
  • Faith is the archangel who is focused on bringing out our benevolence. She is the twin flame of Archangel Michael and is on a divine mission to help us recognise that humans are basically good and aligned with love. Just like her name, she is all about faith and trust. She reminds us that the world has taught us to believe that we are separate from love, and that if we begin to see the good in others, then we will start to cultivate a loving experience of the world around us.
  • Stay calm and breathe. You are a divine being of love who has done so much good in the world. You may be going through personal transformations and feel that you’re not getting anywhere, but Archangel Faith is drawing close to guide you beyond the limitations that your ego or fears have created for you. You may be trying to work out whom to trust. First trust yourself. When you do this and recognise that you are made of love, you will attract those who reflect that love and can enjoy true friendships and loving relationships. Know that good is here to stay.

 

AQUARIUS

Do you pay attention to your dreams? What messages or guidance have they been giving you lately?

HORUS – Cosmic Gateway

  • “Your thoughts are magnetic and powerful. Miraculous changes are occurring.”
  • Horus is the Egyptian eagle-headed god and son/twin flame of the goddess Isis. He is known for his foresight, psychic awareness and ability to travel between the worlds. He can help us move into the cosmos with our mind, mediations and prayers, so that we can harness the natural magic that surrounds us. He was known for ritual magic in the past, and now he helps create pockets of energy in the world where we can access light, wisdom and insight. If you are seeing the symbol of an eye appearing around you, know that Horus is asking you to become aware of how you are influencing the energy around you, and how it in turn is influencing you.
  • You are connected to the universe and have the ability to manifest miraculous experiences. Your thoughts, words, and actions are like magnets drawing the energy that creates and cultivates your world. You have a stellar gateway chakra above your head, a vortex of energy that is influenced by your own energy. You can place ideas into this vortex to create what you are seeking. The universe also offers you guidance, abundance, support and healing based on your capacity to connect to it and accept it. You have a real opportunity to further that connection now by sending prayers and intentions out into the cosmos.

 

PISCES

What soulful habits or rituals would you like to weave into your life on a daily basis?

CERNUNOUS – Life-force

  • “Express your driving passion. Sensual and sexual powers are increased.”
  • Cernunnous (pronounced Ker-nun-os), also known as Herne, is a Celtic stag god who represents connection to the Earth. He is one of the oldest recognised Celtic gods and features on the Gundestrup cauldron, a giant silver vessel from the Iron Age. He is a lover of the Great Mother and impregnates the land so that it will be filled with life. He can help us form a connection with the animal spirits and ancestors of our land.
  • There is a deep build-up of life-force within you now and a need to channel it into action. You may have extra energy or be more alert than usual, or be aware of a sense of increased sensual or sexual energy. If you have been unsure how this ties into your spiritual path, know that it can allow you to access the richness of your soul. When we are not expressing ourselves sexually, our spiritual potential can become tamed or muted, so if you are denying yourself a desire, ask yourself how you can fulfil it. Ask Cernunnous to help you access your sexual self so that you can express it with integrity, and in a way that honours your soul. If you and your partner are trying for a child and this card appears, fertility is very possible, especially if Brigid, Cernunnos’ twin flame, is present too.

New Moon x Capricorn

Exact 3.17pm NZST

Here we are! The first new moon for 2018, and wow what a show the skies are putting on for us!

Parked up in Capricorn, we have not only the Sun + the Moon (together = our new moon), but Mercury, Venus, Saturn & Pluto! with 6/10 major cosmic guides, we know we have to pay attention.

Capricorn is the hard-working mountain goat. When slow & steady wins the race, she brings us tangible results through practical action. One foot in front of other is the only way to get to the top.

The Sun (our life force), the Moon (our emotions & intuition), Mercury (our thinking & communicating), Venus (our love and earthly resources), Saturn (the discipline to make our dreams happen) and Pluto (our path of evolution along the way). they’re all working together, all in synchronised motion! it’s not often we get this kind of alignment, within ourselves as well as in the world around us.

So, what’s your mountain top? What do you want to bring to life this year, in REALITY not just in your mind? MAKE. IT. HAPPEN. The universe is there to support like never before! If you missed your new year’s intentions, now is just as powerfully potent to write some things down and make those dreams happen. xBS

 

 

 

SIGN SPECIFIC GUIDANCE FOR THE NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN
Read for your Sun, Moon & Rising signs to get the best overall picture of the unique ways this energy is playing out for you!

 

ARIES

48 – Wishing Well

“Desire is the sacred impulse of for life. Feel it, but let go of all attachment to ownership.”

Desire is the most important impulse for creating life. Now you’re seeing the relationship between desire and inspiration, and sensing that moment of truth when you feel the inception of new life. It is an “Aha!” moment when everything makes sense. Perhaps you recognise a soul mate, or are conceiving a baby or an idea. The Wishing Well card awakens you to the presence of unseen forces that enable new beginnings. Divine intelligence activates the field of possibilities where new life is co-created in a magical way. Neither you nor anyone else can know how or why this happens. It just does. To that end, you can’t control the process of growth. Rather, you must step aside to be a channel for higher forces and relinquish any attachment to how this new creation should appear, or when. Form your intention and take action by dropping the coin into the Wishing Well, then trust in Spirit. Prepare to be amazed.

 

TAURUS

6 – Mountain

“You have the capacity to flow around any obstacle. This is the time to adapt.”

Sometimes you’ll come across what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle, like a huge mountain that separates you from your success. You might think that climbing it or chiseling away at it is the answer … but why take such a treacherous, tedious approach? Be like the rivers that flow around mountains naturally. You’ll move past this obstacle relatively quickly if you choose the easy way around. This is the time to adapt to your circumstances. If you do decide to climb, remember to take one step at a time, opting for the next right action.

 

GEMINI

49 – Talisman

“A lesson truly learned is crystallised as earned wisdom. You have all you need for the success you seek.”

Wisdom allows you to recognise traps on the road and familiar patterns that you want to avoid. It also enables you to quickly gather information about where you are on your journey. It helps you to recognise your allies and know how to find the best routes along the way. Now you’re at a place where you know the right things to do and the best choices to make. You really can’t commit a mistake. Whatever your inquiry, great fortune awaits you, for you have the wisdom to arrive at the right decision. You’ve learned your lessons and earned the right to your success.

 

CANCER

1 – Bone Collector

“You are whole and have everything you need within.”

When the Bone Collector appears, she is asking you to look closely at your circumstances to see if you’re fully present or reacting out of past conditioning and unconscious expectations. Whenever we’re wounded, especially when we’re young, it’s as if something essential is stolen from us. We adapt, and accept a particular version of the truth that then sets us up to behave a certain way in the future when faced with a situation that reminds us of the original event. What we know about ourselves thus becomes influenced by a perception of limitation. You may feel unworthy or without courage; you may see yourself as flawed or unlovable, or expect to be criticised. No matter what your question, the Bone Collector reminds you that the truth is that you’re a powerful being with limitless possibilities. She has kept safe what was stolen from you in the wounding, and is here for you as you reclaim it now. You have everything you believe you lack, and the Bone Collector is your inner resource. Act as if you have what you need and you’ll find you have it after all. Anything is possible. With awareness, the wounds of the past need not define you.

 

LEO

22 – Intention

“Deliberate, clear intentions have the power to change your world.”

Your objectives will be fulfilled at this time. Inspired intentions are like magic arrows shot into the sky. The universe is bringing you a gift, showing you that you’re hitting your mark. Recognise that you’re not the one who has to do all the work, however; others help you co-create reality. You connect to the power of your intention, sending it out into the field, then allow for synchronicity to work its magic. Perhaps the good intentions of others will inspire you to send out beautiful ones of your own. Own the life you want to lead, and live deliberately, with clarity and detachment.

 

VIRGO

29 – Coming to Life

“Something beautiful is being born in your life.”

When you look at your life, can you see how you’ve grown and evolved over time? Perhaps you’ve shed “skins” and identities and created new ones, or at the very least matured in your ideas about yourself and the world you inhabit. You know things take time, and Spirit’s timetable is rarely in sync with your own. This card indicates that a long-held dream is beginning to show signs of life. You must try not to coax it along, or shape it according to your desires. Sprit knows the best form for the manifestation of this dream, and your life can become even better than you could possibly imagine. Now is the time for reverence and awe. Allow the contours of your path to be carved by the hands of the Divine. All you have to do is show up.

 

LIBRA

17 – Ghostlands

“You can learn from the past and imagine a beautiful future, but you must live in the here-and-now.”

Whenever you set your sights too far ahead, you run the risk of losing your footing, for rarely do the present and future match up exactly on the Enchanted Map that is your life story. The future has no substance right now; it is a place that has no grounding as of yet. You can’t live there, yet you can take measured steps towards a goal or dream. These steps are important now. The same goes for nostalgia. You can look into the past wistfully and remember beautiful moments or revisit lessons learned. However, you can’t live there, nor can you go back and change what was. Yesterday is gone forever. Live fully in the present. The “now” is the most powerful place to put your attention. Its magic reaches out in every direction, further than the heart and soul can see.

 

SCORPIO

51 – Moonlight

“Your intuition allows you to see beyond the mundane, logical, and analytical. Follow it.:

Moonlight beckons.Come, and trust your intuition to lead you into places that may not seem logical. Your hunches will be right on target. Resist “second-guessing” yourself, for your alternative perception is especially sharp right now. You can see beyond the surface of things and truly read between the lines. This is a good time to use oracle cards or other systems of divination to gain information. Remember that the language of intuition is a symbolic one. It comes subtly through a hunch, a “tingling”, a clear sound, or an animal or object crossing your path. Spirit is sending you messages to help you now. Success is yours if you follow the signs.

 

SAGITTARIUS

30 – Making a Choice

“You’re required to come to a decision now.”

You’re faced with a dilemma or a fork in the road and must make a conscious choice regarding the next right action. Whatever that choice is, you must take responsibility for it – yet you needn’t be afraid. You may not have all the answers right now, because the way ahead can’t be known until you’ve embarked and travelled a few steps. Trust your intuition. Ask for a sign from Spirit and you will be led to the right path. If you remain conscious and aware, your choice will be the right one at this time. Life is always about learning. Success lies in choosing consciously, guided by intuition and Spirit.

 

CAPRICORN

37 – Cleaning House

“It’s time to clear the clutter to make way for better things.”

When you see the Cleaning House card in a reading, it’s time to de-clutter your life. Get rid of unwanted things in your physical home, and release what you no longer want or truly need. Is there any unfinished business you should address? Thoughts, memories, and emotional baggage must be swept out of your house as well. Your conscience must be clear for you to move freely in the world. Celebrate a spring-cleaning and feel the freedom as you make way for much better things. Look at what you’ve resisted discarding and be honest about its value. Be honest. Clean house.

 

AQUARIUS

38 – Heal the “Ouch”

“Forgiveness is the healer of the soul.”

This is a time for great soothing of the heart, body, soul, and mind, as this card indicates that healing will be prevalent in your life now. If you feel drawn to study the healing arts, you’ll be successful in developing your natural capacity to restore others to wellness. However, the message may be that you’re being called to change your behaviours in order to heal the earth. Perhaps you’ll switch to a cruelty-free diet, eating less meat; or perhaps you’ll pay more attention to how much water or electricity you use. You’re being asked to be conscious of your footprint on the sacred earth and all of life and to commit to the healing card. The “Heal the Ouch!” card may also be an indicator of old wounds and broken bonds being mended. Reconciliations are possible now. Let bygones be bygones.

 

PISCES

41 – Unexpected Visitors

“If you expect the unexpected, you’ll be prepared for miracles.”

Detours, surprises, and paradigm shifts … expect the unexpected. No matter how detailed your plans are, and how clear you believe the road ahead to be, there are times when the best plans are waylaid by unforeseen circumstances. At first, detours may seem inconvenient, but a surprise turn of events signals that the adventure of life is beginning to get interesting. No one can plan for synchronicity – for fate and destiny to meet – except Spirit, who knows what you can’t comprehend for now. Life is full of surprises, so stay on your toes and enjoy this exciting new adventure you weren’t expecting. There is a plan for your life that may not match up with your agenda.

 


I hope you find the above insights useful and relevant to the energies you are experiencing. I encourage you to check back towards the end of January, to allow your intuition to draw connections between the above messages and the situations playing out at that time. 

If you feel called to go deeper into the energies at work in your life, you may consider a personal one-on-one intuitive guidance session with me. I would love to assist you in discovering more of the magic of who you truly are. 

Sending you all my love, may cosmic light shine brightly upon your journey.

New Moon in Sagittarius

exact 18.12.2017 – 19.30 NZST

our last new moon for 2017.

the final phase that will begin, before this year will end.

what seeds will you sow? what intentions will you put forth? in what ways will you move through the final days of this year?

we are always handed invitations in the form of lessons, in astrology.

we are always given the chance to learn something, if only we accept the challenge.

understanding the language spoken in our skies, takes time and effort – like anything worth having in this life. but if we commit to doing the work, the rewards are sure follow.

sagittarius is the archer. with her bow and arrow she finds her target. bulls-eye focused, hawk-eye vision, she knows what she wants.

she surveys her horizons, sets her desires in her sights, and then shoots straight ahead towards that goal. she is the freedom seeker, the traveller, the explorer of unknown territory. she is fire, burning bright, fuelled by passion, purpose, and the quest for higher meaning.

we all have her inside of us, the archer with her bow.

we all have our targets, our goals, the things we wish to experience in our lives.

these desires stem from somewhere.

seeded in our soul, the depths of who we are.

guided by our emotions, the deep pull we feel towards this light.

encouraged by our self-worth, the knowing that we deserve this dream.

quickened by our thought process, the understanding of the adventure we are embarking upon.

and finally, manifested by our hard work, the actions we take over & over again in the pursuit of this goal.

the sun is our soul, the moon our emotions, venus our self-worth, mercury the way we think, and saturn our discipline. all of these planets are moving through sagittarius at this time, creating huge emphasis on these parts of ourselves.

what do we want? why do we want it? do we believe we are capable of achieving our dreams? and maybe most important of all, are we willing to do the work to get there?

these are the questions we are being asked this new moon. this is the invitation we have been handed as we head into the final weeks of 2017.

the wheel is always turning. cycles are always beginning and ending. nothing is constant, except for change.

i hope you ride the waves with me, let’s learn to surf together.

all my love and new moon magic,

xBS

 


SIGN SPECIFIC GUIDANCE FOR THE NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

 

ARIES

20 – Flying

“You have the power to see things from a higher perspective.”

  • If you were a bird flying high in the air, what would you see? When you soar above life’s challenges and opportunities, a new perspective becomes available. Today you have invisible wings that allow you to swiftly bring your circumstances into alignment with your highest purpose. This is a sign that your waiting is over, that all your hard work has paid off and the things you hoped for are no longer beyond your scope. You have the ability to reach for the stars and find one with your name on it. Spread your wings and soar. The angels are waiting for you.

 

TAURUS

24 – Stuck in the Mud

“You are being invited to stop and savour the wonder of your life.”

  • Becoming stuck is sometimes the only way to trick yourself into slowing down and looking around you. In fact, this is a sign that you need to shift your focus away from what you’re doing and place your attention elsewhere. Struggling will only get you to even muddier places. Now is not the time to move forward, but to observe. Clarity about your circumstances will come a little later. Stop and find the joy in what you’ve been overlooking. Soon you’ll be out of the mud, but for now, be still and know that Spirit has a plan for you.

 

GEMINI

4 – Spirit of Place

“Authenticity is the essence of power.”

  • Our ancient ancestors believed that every place has a Spirit looking after it or embodying it: just as we have a soul, the plants, trees, birds, mountains, and rivers have their own essences. When the Spirit of Place arrives in your reading, it says that the answer to your query is in the overarching theme of your circumstances. Is your question about a struggle? The answer is to relax and let go of your need to control the situation. If your inquiry relates to finding love, then embody love rather than long for it. Once you find the essential truth that underlies your question and then name it, you’ll discover the answer you’ve been seeking. Your greatest power is your authenticity.

 

CANCER

1 – Bone Collector

“You are whole and have everything you need within.”

  • When the Bone Collector appears, she is asking you to look closely at your circumstances to see if you’re fully present or reacting out of past conditioning and unconscious expectations Whenever we’re wounded, especially when we’re young, it’s as if something essential is stolen from us. We adapt, and accept a particular version of the truth that then sets us up to behave a certain way in the future when faced with a situation that reminds us of the original event. What we know about ourselves thus becomes influenced by a perception of limitation. You may feel unworthy or without courage; you may see yourself as flawed or unlovable, or expect to be criticised. No matter what your question, the Bone Collector reminds you that the truth is that you are a powerful human being with limitless possibilities. She has kept safe what was stolen from you in the wounding, and is here for you as you reclaim it now. You have everything you believe you lack, and the Bone Collector is your inner resource. Act as if you have what you need and you’ll find you have it after all. Anything is possible. With awareness, the wounds of the past need not define you.

 

LEO

10 – Rock Bottom

“Surrender and acceptance are the keys to freedom.”

  • As difficult as it may be to accept, it seems that you’ve reached a point where you can go no further in the same manner in which you’ve been doing things. Perhaps you’ve hit a proverbial brick wall, or experienced a deep sense of loss and don’t know where to turn. The old way of doing things must be discarded fully in order to move onward and upward. A new direction and a new strategy are called for. The only way out is through surrender. Accept things as they are, and admit that you have no idea what to do next. If you wait in that heartfelt moment of release, then a stairway will appear, like magic, and all manner of synchronicities will show you the way to higher ground. The Rock Bottom card is a sign that a miracle is about to occur, but only if you let go completely.

 

VIRGO

48 – Wishing Well

“Desire is the sacred impulse for life. Feel it, but let go of all attachment to ownership.”

  • Desire is the most important impulse for creating life. Now you’re seeing the relationship between desire and inspiration, and sensing that moment of truth when you feel the inception of new life. It is an “Aha!” moment when everything makes sense. Perhaps you recognise a soul mate, or are conceiving a baby or an idea. The Wishing Well card awakens you to the presence of unseen forces that enable new beginnings. Divine intelligence activates the field of possibilities where new life is co-created in a magical way. Neither you nor anyone else can know how or why this happens. It just does. To that end, you can’t control the process of growth. Rather, you must step aside to be a channel for higher forces and relinquish any attachment to how this new creation should appear, or when. Form your intention, and take action by dropping the coin into the Wishing Well; then trust in Spirit. Prepare to be amazed.

 

LIBRA

3 – Wizard of Awareness

“Your soul knows best; be still and observe.”

  • Mindfulness is about being observant and remaining neutral about what goes on in the world around you. This applies to the environment within you, too. If you struggle inside yourself, stepping into an observer position gives you a new, powerful perspective that neutralises any discomfort or overexcitement. You have the capacity to see things clearly now, unencumbered by opinion or desire. Wearing the world as a loose garment requires you to adopt a sense that nothing that happens to you is personal. People come and go; experiences evolve from one state to another in a continual shifting and change no matter how much you want things to stay the same. The Wizard of Awareness asks you to give up your need to define or limit what you’re experiencing now. It’s all good! Let it be, and watch the miracle unfold without any direct influence from you.

 

SCORPIO

40 – Follow the Leader

“Every life is a teaching tool for others. Your authenticity and honesty are an example to those around you.”

  • You’re being called to lead others by example. Your wisdom has been earned as a result of your bravery in the adventure of your life. The experiences of battles won and lost, places discovered, tears shed, and joy revealed have placed you in a unique position to be of service to others. Your suffering has been crystallised into a talisman of wisdom. Now you must share it. By being fully authentic, you’ll lead others into the light. You’ll be required to divulge some things about your past so that you may help someone else. Lead with love. There is another message here as well. Look to those whose great character and accomplishments you admire. Emulate the leaders you respect. You will then in turn have more to offer.

 

SAGITTARIUS

47 – Sacred Pool

“The world is a reflection of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Embody the love you wish to see in the world.”

  • When you look into the mirror, do you like what you see? The Sacred Pool card asks that you focus on self-love and self-esteem. We are all works in progress, so a detached self-examination made with rigorous honesty is called for now. Reflect by the Sacred Pool and be at peace with yourself. Can you see how far you’ve come and how magical your life is? Do you notice the spark of the Divine shining through your eyes? When you’re conscious that you’re the embodiment of Spirit, it becomes easier to respect yourself and act in good conscience … then you’ll reap the greatest rewards. Your unique service to the world is not only needed, but celebrated. See the love within you, and know that if you cast it upon the waters, it will return to you tenfold. Be at peace, for you are beautiful and loved. Act with surety and confidence, and success shall be yours – whatever your inquiry.

 

CAPRICORN

27 – Home

“You are comfortable in your own skin. You belong.”

  • Peace, security, safety, belonging, and all the features one would want from “home” are indicated now. The Home card represents an invitation to experience what its like to be secure in your own skin, to live comfortably no matter what is happening in the world around you. It is a time for opening your eyes to your tribe of like-minded people, or one special person who makes you feel like you’ve come home. Home is love, and love is all around you now. Whatever your inquiry, you are where you’re meant to be and will reap great benefits by staying on this path regardless of where it leads. Home will always be with you – it’s where the heart is.

 

AQUARIUS

9 – Storm Fields

“This, too, shall pass.”

  • An uncomfortable chaos is surrounding you. Things that you’ve left unattended may be the cause of some conflict. Pent up energy needs release, just as a storm in nature must break, for these events occur when the electricity between opposing forces stirs things up and creates temporary disorder. Not all storms are destructive. Rather, they serve nature by bringing rain to the ground and wind to the trees, enabling seeds to be widely distributed and continuous growth ensured. Just remember that whatever is being stirred up inside you – or between you and another – will benefit you later. The sun will shine again, and new growth will be observed. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a little.

 

PISCES

19 – Dragon’s Lair

“You are always protected and Divinely directed.”

  • You have a remarkable internal warning system that lets you know when things are out of alignment. You’re about to enter dangerous territory, so treat carefully and be aware of your surroundings. The path you’re on now is one that will challenge you to the core. That said, peril is also exciting and exhilarating, like the danger you feel before you enter a new relationship, knowing that you’ll be changed forever. A life lived fully isn’t lived only in safety. A new experience is calling to you, one that will test your courage. The choice is yours, but there is greater value in risk taking than remaining unchallenged. New territories are waiting to be discovered.

Super Full Moon in Gemini

Exact 04.12.2017 – 4.47am NZST

did you see lady luna shining extra bright in our skies last night? did you feel her pull on your psyche as she reached her peak, for our last full moon of 2017? did you take time to listen to what was rising within, the messages she is bringing forth for you at this time?

with the full moon in the air sign of gemini, our conscious mind is illuminated – our thoughts, the way we process information and make sense of the world around us.

with the sun shining opposite, in the fire sign of sagittarius, our freedom-seeking higher self steps forward. burning through the bullshit and clearing away all that no longer serves us.

this lunar cycle we are being asked to balance our monkey minds with the wisdom of our higher consciousness. what stories do we tell ourselves that are holding us back? where are we playing small, trapped by conditioning, limited by the lens with which we perceive the world around us?

with gemini’s ruler mercury heading into his final retrograde for the year, extra energy is available for powerful insights at this time. review, reevaluate, revise, revisit, remember, re-do, release, reclaim.

take some time today to write down all that you wish to leave behind as the doors of this year draw to a close. burn, bury or drown that list, symbolically freeing yourself from those chains. these last few weeks of december will be ripe for introspection. do yourself a favour and harness this energy to its highest potential. your future self with thank you for it!

SIGN SPECIFIC GUIDANCE FOR THE SUPER FULL MOON IN GEMINI. 

Read for both your sun & rising signs, if you know what they are. If you don’t, no matter, just take what resonates and leave the rest. As you read through the below, trust the intuitive thoughts that jump to your mind – that’s your higher self coming through with your own unique insights on the situations playing out in your life. Remember, you are your own best teacher throughout your life’s journey. Trust your inner voice, it grows stronger each time that you do ❤

 

ARIES 

31 – Dry Desert

“Dig deep for inspiration and truth. Now is the time to become resilient and adaptable.”

  • Is your life presenting you with opportunities that seem to yield nothing? Have your ideas dried up? Does it feel like you’re on an endless journey through a dry, hot, lifeless desert? This card reminds your that there are times when you’re meant to become resilient as you journey through harsher circumstances. You’re being required to conserve your energy – until, after consistent effort, you reach the oasis you’re searching for. Consider the creatures that live in these conditions: they have adapted to thrive in spite of the outer environment. In a desert, water – essential for life – can be found deep underground. Go deep within yourself now … find your truth there. Let Spirit sustain you while you locate the real Source. Whatever it is you’re asking about will not be found in the conditions you’re in until you move past the surface of things and choose to do the real work and discover the answers deep within you. This may not seem like the most productive time, but looks are deceiving. This is a most important place to find what’s truly right for you!

 

TAURUS

37 – Cleaning House

“It’s time to clear the clutter to make way for better things.”

  • When you see the ‘Cleaning House’ card in a reading, it’s time to de-clutter your life. Get rid of unwanted things in your physical home, and release what you no longer want or truly need. Is there any unfinished business you should address? Thoughts, memories, and emotional baggage must be swept out of your house as well. You conscience must be clear for you to move freely in the world. Celebrate a spring cleaning and feel the freedom as you make way for much better things. Look at what you’ve resisted discarding and be honest about its value. Be honest. Clean house.

 

GEMINI

30 – Making a Choice

“You’re required to come to a decision now.”

  • You’re faced with a dilemma or a fork in the road and must make a conscious choice regarding the next right action. Whatever that choice is, you must take responsibility for it – yet you needn’t be afraid. You may not have all the answers right now, because the way ahead can’t be known until you’ve embarked and travelled a few steps. Trust your intuition. Ask for a sign from Spirit and you will be led to the right path. If you remain conscious and aware, your choice will be the right one at this time. Life is always about learning. Success lies in choosing consciously, guided by intuition and Spirit.

 

CANCER

52 – Magical Map Shifter

“Spirit orchestrates everyone’s destiny.”

  • When the ‘Magical Map Shifter’ card arrives, it comes with a mission – to make you aware of the people who come into your life to impact your personal growth. Perhaps you may meet a soul mate whose presence invites you to be the best “you” that you can be, or someone who leads you out of difficulty and into a place of safety or success. Pay attention to those individuals who cross your path today, and cause you to reflect on your journey. Be awake and aware, and you’ll recognise them for the important change agents they are. Your whole perspective about who you are and why you are here will shift. The Magical Map Shifter always initiates you into a better version of yourself.

 

LEO

10 – Rock Bottom

“Surrender and acceptance are the keys to freedom.”

  • As difficult as it may be to accept, it seems that you’ve reached a point where you can go no further in the same manner in which you’ve been doing things. Perhaps you’ve hit a proverbial brick wall, or experienced a deep sense of loss and don’t know where to turn. The old way of doing things must be discarded fully in order to move onward and upward. A new direction and a new strategy are called for. The only way out is to surrender. Accept things as they are, and admit that you have no idea what to do next. If you wait in that heartfelt moment of release, then a stairway will appear, like magic, and all manner of synchronicities will show you the way to higher ground. The ‘Rock Bottom’ card is a sign that a miracle is about to occur, but only if you let go completely.

  • Mindfulness is about being observant, and remaining neutral about what goes on in the world around you. This applies to the environment within you, too.

You have the capacity to see things clearly now, unencumbered by opinion or desire. Wearing the world as a loose garment requires you to adopt a sense that nothing that happens to you is personal.

The ‘Wizard of Awareness’ asks you to give up your need to define or limit what you’re experiencing now. It’s all good! Let it be, and watch the miracle unfold without any direct influence from you.

 

LIBRA

2 – Gentle Gardener

“Be your own person. Be a conscious co-creator.”

  • The Gentle Gardener is visiting you at this moment in your life to remind you that your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs create the reality you experience. She is the embodiment of the energy within you that is sent out into the field of co-creation and ensures that all that you are is reflected in the world of form. Are you aware of your thoughts? What is their quality? Believe in limitless possibility and you will see miracles unfold. The ‘Gentle Gardener’ guarantees the integrity of everything you send out into the world. Stay positive and expect a wondrous return. Your garden is abundant with beauty.

 

SCORPIO

4 – Spirit of Place

“Authenticity is the essence of power.”

  • Our ancient ancestors believed that every place has a Spirit looking after it or embodying it: just as we have a soul, the plants, trees, birds, mountains and rivers have their own essences. When the ‘Spirit of Place’ card arrives in your reading, it says that the answer to your query is in the overarching theme of your circumstances. Is your question about a struggle? The answer is to relax and let go of your need to control the situation. If your inquiry relates to finding love, then embody love rather than long for it. Once you find the essential truth that underlies your question and then name it, you’ll discover the answer you’ve been seeking. Your greatest power is your authenticity.

 

SAGITTARIUS

5 – Goblins

“Fear is an illusion. Choose love today. Forgive yourself and others.”

  • Goblins are born when you’re wounded and something essential is lost in that experience. From that point on, as you forget your wholeness, they remain with you in the shadows. There, they remind you of what brought them into being, by mimicking your own voice, tricking you into believing that you’re unworth, victimised, or unlovable. They hold you hostage through low self-worth, self-sabotage, and the feeling that you’re lacking what you need. If the ‘Goblins’ card pays you a visit, know that they represent the shadow of your own self, or someone else’s, and that they’re leading you into a potentially reactive situation. A ‘Goblins’ card’s appearance is an opportunity for growth, however, and a signal that you must love yourself. No human is without flaws. The Goblin’s message is that you must release resentments and negative self-talk. Within you is the spark of the Divine. Ask Spirit to help heal you. Miracles can and do happen. Let go of the negativity.

 

CAPRICORN

9 – Storm Fields

“This, too, shall pass.”

  • An uncomfortable chaos is surrounding you. Things that you’ve left unattended may be the cause of some conflict. Pent-up energy needs release, just as a storm in nature must break, for these events occur when the electricity between opposing forces stirs things up and creates temporary disorder. Not all storms are destructive. Rather, they serve nature by bringing rain to the ground and wind to the trees, enabling seeds to be widely distributed and continuous growth to be ensured. Just remember that whatever is being stirred up inside you – or between you and another – will benefit you later. The sun will shine again, and new growth will be observed. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a little.

 

AQUARIUS

22 – Intention

“Deliberate. Clear intentions have the power to change your world.”

  • Your objectives will be fulfilled at this time. Inspired intentions are like magic arrows shot into the sky. The universe is bringing you a gift, showing you that you’re hitting your mark. Recognise that you’re not the one who has to do all the work, however; others hep you co-create reality. You connect to the power of your intention, sending it out into the field, then allow for synchronicity to work its magic. Perhaps the good intentions of others will inspire you to send out beautiful ones of your own. Own the life you want to lead, and live deliberately, with clarity and detachment.

 

PISCES

12 – Slow and Steady

“Slow and steady wins the race.”

  • Remember the old cliche, ‘slow and steady wins the race’? This is a time for easy movement, unhurried steps, and a steady heart. Trust that taking life at a more leisurely pace will give you greater access to your dreams. Slowing down allows more contact with the juicier elements of your life. Savour them.

new moon in virgo

Exact 20.09.2017 – 5.30pm NZST

“There is no greater power than that of the sun, the moon, and a woman who knows her worth.” – Nicole Lyons

Those words above embody perfectly the essence of last night’s new moon in Virgo. She is the healer of the zodiac, in service to others she pours herself out into the world, organising, analysing and seeking perfection as she goes. Yet easily too hard on herself, she expects too much, her mind full of ‘not-good-enoughs’, weighing her down.

The Sun (our ego), the Moon (our emotions), Mercury (how we communicate), Mars (our ambition) and Venus (how we love) are all moving through Virgo at this time. Tremendous energy is being focused here, on the Virgo within us all.

Other players in the sky sending energy our way, include two tough homeboys with some straight-up questions.. Saturn, the task-master, is asking where are we being too hard on ourselves vs where are we not being accountable enough? Square to Chiron, the wounded healer, who is asking where are we avoiding the pain of our wounds vs where are we playing the victim and identifying too strongly with them?

The exact degree of the new moon is Virgo 27, “a baldheaded man who has seized power”. This speaks to several things – experience (implied age, baldness), taking charge (seizing, grabbing the reigns), and the ability to affect change (power). That this degree is described with a male character implies masculine action-oriented energy, yet we are cautioned against taking this to the extreme, as Virgo too easily can do. Perfectionism has no place here.

Solid, grounded, methodical, orderly planning towards desired aims is exactly what we need. We are being asked to show up for ourselves, to identify what in our lives needs our attention, and what have we been paying too much attention to? Stressing about things we cannot control, holding on tight to things that are no longer meant for us, living in the past or future instead of the now, all of these are sure fire ways to lower our vibration and keep us stuck in toxic cycles.

Self-care is the name of the game this with this new moon. Let’s raise our vibration! Priority number 1! Ditch the low-vibe junk foods, alcohol, binge watching Netflix. Fresh air, exercise, fresh juice or smoothie bowls are exactly what we need. Listen to some Abraham Hicks, flow some Yoga with Adriene on YouTube, or paint, sing & dance to your heart’s content. It’s time to indulge in ourselves, gently yet firmly. Find the balance, take responsibility, for it’s only up to us to care for ourselves in the way we need.

In this world of duality we are forever seeking the balance point between two polar opposites. It’s a constant dance, one that commands our relentless full attention. And yes, that does get hella tiring. The deep and transformative energy never ceases. All we can do is learn to surf and ride the waves, and be kind to ourselves & others at this time. Big changes are taking place for all and they won’t always be comfortable, but this too shall pass. Why not spend the time while waiting on becoming the best we can possibly be?

All my love & new moon magic,

full moon in pisces

Exact 06.09.2017 – 7.03pm NZST

A bit late with this one sorry. I found myself swimming in the Piscean waters and needed time to come up for air. But here I am, and now here below I dive in deep to bring you this month’s full moon magic…

Pisces is the ocean of our collective consciousness. He is the healer, the psychic, the dreamer, the void. He is all that we are, when we realise we are all one; the wave to the ocean, the grain of sand to the beach.

Pisces is the last of the twelve signs of the zodiac, meaning he is the peak of our evolution through the astrological wheel. Assimilating and integrating all we have learned through the eleven signs before, in Pisces we are reminded of our place in the infinite interconnected Universe.

With Lady Luna transversing his depths, our inner worlds and emotions and the darkness inside, is all coming up for review. We will each be facing some deep dark truths, and perhaps revisiting things we thought we had moved on from. Yet coming back with a new level of understanding is allowing a new level of healing to take place; more pain is transmuted, more of the lesson is learned.

Opposite Pisces in the wheel of the zodiac, we have Virgo – organised, detail-focused, analytical, and always in service to others. Moving through her earthy plains we have the Sun; our ego, our personality, our soul. The polarity here is (as with all full moons) calling us to find balance between our inner and outer worlds. Are the two congruent? In alignment? Are we speaking and living our truths, not just physically but emotionally and energetically as well?

Our last lunation was the new moon solar eclipse in Leo. Crashing waves of new beginnings, we then found ourselves dragged into the undertow of a Mercury retrograde. Counter forces on the surface, but beneath the waves during those three slow weeks of communication, travel and tech mishaps, we experienced magic medicine inviting us to truly release what was no longer needed, before we could rise to the surface and surf the solar eclipse swells.

We say we want it, we say we’re ready, but are we truly? Ready to welcome abundance and success and happiness? Ready to say YES to love in all its rawness and vulnerability? Mercury Rx asked us those questions, and dug up from the depths the junk we now find ourselves facing in the light of this full moon in Pisces.

Mercury stationed direct just one day before the full moon. Meaning his role is complete, the responsibility is now ours. He guided us gently, maybe one level deeper than we knew we needed to go, maybe one level deeper than we felt comfortable going.

So now we must harness our Virgo, take care of the details, get our hands in the earth and get dirty. Shine the sunlight from our soul into the darkest depths of our inner world, and once & for all release that which no longer has a home inside of ourselves and our souls.

The last player to mention with this month’s full moon magic, is Neptune. Conjunct (at the same degree as) the moon, he is God of the Sea (collective consciousness) and ruler of Pisces. He is the dreamer of our dreams.

Compassionate, idealistic, imaginative, spiritual, Neptune is our psychic source and ultimate teacher of oneness.

Universal love is what it’s all about here homies. Transmuting our own pain for the benefit of the collective. Understanding that to change the world we must first change ourselves. Acknowledging our responsibility for that process, as we all signed up to be here at this time for that reason.

One final note on Mama Nature’s rage roaring across the planet right now (hello hurricanes)… Understand that she has her own consciousness and evolutionary journey, but she is also a part of our collective as well. Her pain is our pain. Her rage is our rage. Her tears are our tears.

“As above, so below; as within, so without.”

May we heal ourselves, love ourselves, rise up as ourselves.

And may we, in turn, heal the earth, and heal each other.

Happy full moon. Wishing you all the Piscean magic and more…

new moon solar eclipse in leo

Exact 22.08.2017 – 6.30am NZST

We are passing through a gateway, both individually & collectively. Things will never be the same as a new six month cycle takes hold.

The holy trinity of our Universe – the Earth, Moon & Sun – are in perfect alignment with this month’s total solar eclipse in the very last degree of Leo. With all that has been playing out in our skies over the past month, this amplified new moon magic represents more than just new beginnings. We are being offered the opportunity to reset, to re-align with our higher self, and to truly raise our consciousness for the betterment of all.

In astrology, the position of the sun in our chart represents our outer self, the face we show the world – both our ego and our soul’s purpose. Whereas the moon’s position in our chart represents our inner self, our emotions and subconscious influences. Masculine vs. Feminine; light vs. dark. Like yin & yang, balance must be found to achieve harmony both within and without.

Collectively, we see feminist movements across the globe, calls for gender equality, equal rights and equal pay. The imbalance of our world built on patriarchal power is rising to the surface, to be seen and cleared once and for all as we make way for the new earth that is birthing as we speak. This isn’t hate against men, this isn’t a call for male suppression; this is a call for balance in the face of the duality of our world.

Individually, we are each feeling the call to connect more deeply with our inner selves. We are realising what brews below the surface can no longer be ignored. The hustle & grind of our action-orientated (masculine) world has left us more anxious, depressed & disconnected than ever before. We must go within. We must know ourselves, love ourselves, and heal ourselves. Our inner world must be in alignment before our outer world can reflect the same.

As always, you will know which area of your life these themes are playing out. And as always, the challenge is to listen to your own divine guidance. Trust yourself, trust your soul, it’s the path home to your destiny.

See below for channelled guidance according to your zodiac sign. May these messages resonate with your highest truth and help you forward on your path:

 

Aries

FOLLOW THE LEADER – “Every life is a teaching tool for others. Your authenticity and honesty are an example to those around you.”

You’re being called to lead others by example. Your wisdom has been earned as a result of your bravery in the adventure of your life. The experiences of battles won & lost, places discovered, tears shed, and joy revealed have placed you in a unique position to be of service to others.  Your suffering has been crystallised into a talisman of wisdom. Now you must share it. By being fully authentic, you’ll lead others into the light. You’ll be required to divulge some things about your past so that you may help someone else. Lead with love. There is another message here as well: look to those whose great character and accomplishments you admire. Emulate the leaders you respect. You will then in turn have more to offer.

 

Taurus

FLYING – “You have the power to see things from a higher perspective.”

If you were a bird flying high in the air, what would you see? When you soar above life’s challenges and opportunities, a new perspective becomes available. Today you have invisible wings that allow you to swiftly bring your circumstances into alignment with your highest purpose. This is a sign that your waiting is over, that all your hard work has paid off and the things you hoped for are no longer beyond your scope. You have the ability to reach for the stars and find one with your name on it. Spread your wings and soar. The angels are waiting for you.

 

Gemini

MOUNTAIN – “You have the capacity to flow around any obstacle. This is the time to adapt.”

Sometimes you’ll come across what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle, like a huge mountain that separates you from your success. You might think that climbing it or chiseling away at it is the answer… But why take such a treacherous, tedious approach? Be like the rivers that flow around mountains naturally. You’ll move past this obstacle reasonably quickly if you choose the easy way around. This is the time to adapt to your circumstances. If you do decide to climb, remember to take one step at a time, opting for the next right action.

 

Cancer

STORM FIELDS – “This, too, shall pass.”

An uncomfortable chaos is surrounding you. Things that you’ve left unattended may be the cause of some conflict. Pent up energy needs release, just as a storm in nature must break, for these events occur when the electricity between opposing forces stirs things up and creates temporary disorder. Not all storms are destructive. Rather, they serve nature by bringing rain to the ground and wind to the trees, enabling seeds to be widely distributed and continuous growth to be ensured. Just remember that whatever is being stirred up inside you – or between you and another – will benefit you later. The sun will shine again, and new growth will be observed. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a little.

 

Leo

FIELD OF DREAMS – “Your thoughts, feelings and beliefs are always engaging the vast field of pure potential.”

This is the perfect time to harness the field of vast potential not yet realised in your life. Great abundance is yours if you’re willing to do the work alongside the Gentle Gardiner. Be clear about your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Concentrate on your best life regardless of temporary outer conditions imposed upon you by the greater world, which has its own story to tell. You have a basket full of seeds that are quite powerful, for your talents are Divinely inspired and will indeed lead to a great harvest to be shared with others. You will reap what you have sown. Dream big, dream beautiful, take action, tend to the garden of your life… and experience the extraordinary.

 

Virgo

COMING APART – “Now is the time to take separate paths.”

The ‘Coming Apart’ card is a sign to put an end to what is no longer working for you. Has a commitment been broken? Perhaps you need to break a promise, or change course because you took on more than you could handle. This is a perfect time to reassess your goals and values. Are your actions in alignment with what you believe it? Have you created a partnership that is not mutually beneficial? Separation, dissolution, and dispersion are all in focus now. If someone wishes to break away from you, don’t chase the relationship out of a sense of fear. The price you’ll pay will not be worth the prize. Separation brings good fortune.

 

Libra

INTENTION – “Deliberate, clear intentions have the power to change your world.”

Your objectives will be fulfilled at this time. Inspired intentions are like magic arrows shot into the sky. The universe is bringing you a gift, showing you that you’re hitting your mark. Recognise that you’re not the one who has to do all the work, however; others help you co-create reality. You connect to the power of your intention, sending it out into the field, then allow for synchronicity to work its magic. Perhaps the good intentions of others will inspire you to send out beautiful ones of your own. Own the life you want to lead, and live deliberately, with clarity and detachment.

 

Scorpio

GHOSTLANDS – “You can learn from the past and imagine a beautiful future, but you must live in the here-and-now.”

Whenever you set your sights too far ahead, you run the risk of losing your footing, for rarely do the present and future match up exactly on the Enchanted Map that is your life story. The future has no substance right now; it is a place that has no grounding as of yet You can’t live there, yet you can take measure steps toward a goal or dream. These steps are important now. The same goes for nostalgia. You can look into the past wistfully and remember beautiful moments or revisit lessons learned. However, you can’t live there, nor can you go back and change what was. Yesterday is gone forever. Live fully in the present. The ‘now’ is the most powerful place to put your attention. Its magic reaches out in every direction, further than the heart and soul can see.

 

Sagittarius

DRAGON’S LAIR – “You are always protected and Divinely directed.”

You have a remarkable internal warning system that lets you know when things are out of alignment. You’re about to enter dangerous territory, so tread carefully and be aware of your surroundings. The path you’re on now is one that will challenge you to the core. That said, peril is also exciting and exhilarating, like the danger you feel before you enter a new relationship, knowing that you’ll be changed forever. A life lived fully isn’t lived only in safety. A new experience is calling to you, one that will test your courage. The choice is yours, but there is greater value in risk taking than remaining unchallenged. New territories are waiting to be discovered.

 

Capricorn

COMMITMENT – “A true commitment is a responsibility of the heart, mind, body and soul. This is a good time to make one.”

Partnerships formed at this time are harmonious and powerful. The ‘Commitment’ card also indicates the natural evolution of a relationship from its inception to a literal or metaphoric marriage. At the very least, there is a promise of fulfilment in some form. However, you must be conscious of what you’re committing to. Be clear about the nature of your commitment and your responsibility to it. Others are more willing to enter into partnerships at this time. Remember that your partnership with Spirit – and the highest version of your own self – will engage the highest self in another.

 

Aquarius

DEEP FREEZE – “Everything has its season. Now is the time to put activity on hold while you rest.”

The cold winter beckons you to slow down and put a ‘freeze’ on things that are not yet ready to bloom. It’s time for regeneration and hibernation. Forgo ambitious activity. A ‘pregnant pause’ allows ideas to gestate; projects to shift and change; and relationships to go through a dreamy state of being, not going anywhere – not needing to. This is also a time to put all your arguments on ice. Nothing beneficial will come from any of them. Self-care is the most important activity now… So reflect, read a good book, or get a massage. Rest and dream.

 

Pisces

MOVEMENT – “You are in a time of positive forward motion.”

This is the time for positive momentum as you come out of a period of restriction. You’re in a stage of new adventure and discovery. You may feel compelled to take a trip, change your hair, or move your home or business. Regardless, you can’t remain where you are anymore. You feel compelled to go forward. No matter what your inquiry, you will see your dreams take form and doors previously shut begin to open as if by magic. ‘Movement’ is also a state of mind. The fog lifts, and now you know the actions you need to take. This isn’t the time for fear. Let it go and move forward.
