Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius

So this week Luna prepares for the first eclipse of 2020 happening on 4th/5th June depending on where you are in the world. This is the first of 3 eclipses in a row this year!

As a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the more diffuse outer shadow of Earth – the penumbra – falls on Luna’s face. This third kind of lunar eclipse is much more subtle, and much more difficult to observe, than either a total or partial eclipse of the moon. There is never a dark bite taken out of Luna, as in a partial eclipse. The eclipse never progresses to reach the dramatic minutes of totality. At best, at mid-eclipse, very observant people will notice a dark shading on Luna’s face. Others will look and notice nothing at all. But despite it seeming as if nothing is happening, on an energetic level this is a powerful event. This eclipse will not be visible in the UK but we will still its effects.

Strawberry full moon

This particular full Luna phase is known as the Strawberry moon Traditionally coinciding with wild strawberry season, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

This full moon lunar eclipse is happening in the mutable (time for change) sign of Sagittarius and is pushing us towards our truth. As full lunar always does, she will highlight everything that no longer serves us but this will be amplified with the penumbral eclipse beginning a new 6 month cycle. This energy will continue with the further eclipses of this year, but more about that later……

There is a strong watery element surrounding this full moon eclipse with Neptune sitting in the sign of pisces. Perhaps you are having very vivid dreams right now or strong pulls of intuition? The veil is thin and internal belief systems are changing. Neptune rules over these areas and is working with the moon in Sagittarius to help reveal your truth. Perhaps make time to write a dream journal and notice any reoccurring messages that are coming up for you. However the shadow side of Neptune may encourage the need for escapism or a feeling of fog or confusion. Particularly in the world right now we need to remain focused and notice the questions that are being revealed to us. With all this water it’s not surprising that our emotions will be running high and we must be aware of this and not let our feelings rule our actions, for this could have consequences.

The north node (lunar node representing our experience needed for growth) has recently changed signs into Gemini following its journey through cancer for the last 18months. This will encourage new ideas, new information, new thought processes and brings an opportunity of choice to this potent time. You are currently reinventing yourself through your own truth as part of the collective. You are being motivated to create! Think about how you would like to see your life and how you wish to move forwards?

The south node (lunar node representing the part of our journey that has come to fruition) having also recently moved into Sagittarius is amplifying our need to let go of old beliefs, patterns and addictions. The light of Luna will work in harmony here to illuminate things that you have perhaps ignored, been unable to admit or pushed under the carpet for far to long!

Now is a time to think about your own story. Your story of creation and focused awareness of what not only you want for the future, but how your choices may also impact the future of the collective. Stay soft in your heart, forgive and release guilt or shame. We are transcending whilst sitting in the Gemini season. In this world of duality we must see the truth in both the light and the dark.

Wishing you all well at this powerful time.

Finding beauty in release with the super full flower moon.

So here we are again. Luna is half way through another cycle as she moves through her part in the great cosmic wheel. On Thursday 7th May 11.45am UK time, luna will reach super fullness but as always we can connect to this energy a day or so either side of the exact moment. The full moon is the lunar phase when she appears fully illuminated from Earth’s perspective. This occurs when Earth is located between the Sun and luna (more exactly, when the ecliptic longitudes of the Sun and luna differ by 180°). In the month of May luna is often referred to as the Flower moon to signify the flowers that bloom during this month. Other names for May’s brightest moon phase are; Corn Planting moon, Mother’s moon, and Milk moon, from the Old English Rimilcemona which means Month of Three Milkings, when cows were milked three times a day.

This particular super full lunation will sit in the sign of Scorpio(♏︎) and will be a powerful opportunity to cleanse the soul.

Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation scorpius. Scorpius the Scorpion, is the slayer of Orion. Sent by a jealous Artemis, Orion was stung by the Scorpion and caused his death. Orion could not be saved even by Asclepius, the god of healing. According to Greek mythology, Scorpio is the scorpion that Hera called in from the underworld to destroy Orion, The Hunter. Orion had been bragging to the gods that he could destroy any creature on earth. One day Phaisow, son of Apollo, took the gods’ sun chariot out for an afternoon ride. During that ride the scorpion was able to stop the horses pulling the sun chariot. The creatures reward was to be positioned in the heavens, joining Orion.

Hera calling Scopius.

Scorpio links to the element of water and takes you deep within to your darkest depths. It relates to emotions and can draw strength from its intuition. This super full luna will sit opposite the Sun and Mercury in the sign of Taurus and will teach us to fully communicate with our inner desires. We will learn to release anything that we are clinging onto that no longer serves us. We will release relationships and belongings and find connection in what really matters to us. Beauty and sensuality are still very prominent at this time with the blooming of the flowers and the fullness of nature. We are now able to draw upon this ancient magic as the earth is recoded in this time of stillness. Each of the zodiac signs holds power in specific plants and flowers and by connecting with these we can form a relationship to the beauty that surrounds us all and use it to enable us to flush out the impure parts of ourselves. Let this Scorpio moon shead its light upon those aspects and learn to release them with its watery cleansing abilities.

Here are some practices to support you to release at this time of the super full flower moon:

Flower Magic

Scorpio links to flowers of a deep red colour, particually Geraniums. However, Roses or other deep red flowers will work just as well. Have these flowers in your home around the time of the full moon. Engage with them, look at their beauty, smell their sweet scent. Allow them to open your senses and bring in a coherence with nature and all its splendour. Use this energy to align you to your highest potential and let them guide you to release what no longer serves.🌹

Connecting to the Sacral chakra:

Scorpio energy resides in the physical body in the area of the sexual organs and connects to the sacral chakra. This is our space of passion and creativity within. Our sacred cauldren whether you be woman or man. The place where the Kundalini is dormant and can be reawakened. To embody this aspect, sit or lie with the feet connecting together (seated or reclined butterfly pose- Sanskrit- Baddha Konasana) and bring the hands onto the pelvic bowl. Allow the thumbs to connect and the index fingers to meet, creating a triangle shape. As you rest here, draw the breath down and imagine it awakening a cauldren within. Using this breath to stir the caulden and bring forth new passion and creativity. Feel this internal magic fill the entire body and dispel anything that no longer serves.

Taking a Luna Shower:

Step outside the night of the full moon (this is also effective a day or so either side). Take a bowl of natural/spring water out with you and sit quietly illuminated by Luna’s magical rays. Let the energy of the moon penetrate the water. You could do this the night prior to the full moon and leave the water out, making sure it is covered to enhance purity. You could then return the next evening to complete the ritual. Sit or stand in a place where you can see the moon. visualise roots coming out of the sit bones or feet grounding you into the space of Earth. Sense and feel the light of Luna pouring down onto your body from the cosmos and say these words. “Luna love a draw you near, I ask you to release my fear. Shower me with your silver rays and make new light for brighter days”. As you complete this invocation sprinkle some of the moon water over your body focusing on your lower belly/pelvic bowl area. Allow this Luna shower to cleanse your soul.

Wishing you all well in this time of super full luna love.

Embrace the new moon in Taurus.

It’s that time again. Time for a brand new cycle, a new beginning and a chance to go back to basics.

New moons occur once a month and initiate a new moon cycle. They coincide with the next zodiac sign in the cosmic wheel and provide a chance to set new intentions. A new moon happens as the earth’s shadow crosses the moons surface when the sun and moon are conjunct. This new moon is in the sign of Taurus.

Taurus the bull is a fixed modality. It relates to the element of earth and is ruled by the planet Venus. The Taurus energy is practical and well-grounded but also loves beauty and thrives on love. It brings a focus on finances and abundance in general. Its ruling planet Venus governs all that is feminine, beautiful and wondrous. She asks us to look at our core values particularly with money and material goods and she encourages us to love ourselves by enjoying the nice things in life.

At 3.25am 23rd April 2020 (GMT) the moon will emerge from the darkness and a sparkle of moonlight will return. But what aspects will this new moon bring with it? With its conjunction to Uranus there is a big possibility of change. Uranus has shown dominance in astrology throughout this year so far and we have certainly seen its reflection of collective change on earth. But this change has the potential to be either good or bad. With the moons current square to Saturn it highlights risk and asks us to carefully consider any risks that we may now wish to take as there will be consequences. Take time to look at your values now. Which are serving you and which are not? There is some challenging energy here but we have an opportunity to use it proactively and with Jupiter in capricorn we are called to not give up hope!

This is a time to look after ourselves in mind and body. Use your intuition. To do this, it is important to ground yourself and connect to your senses (also ruled by Taurus). Take time to embrace a movement practice. Listen to music. Wear clothes, makeup, jewellery that lift your spirits and be practical around maintaining normal routines. Finding your voice of truth is also important right now as Taurus governs the throat chakra (Vishudha chakra) and relates to our self expression as individuals. Just because we have to stay at home doesn’t mean we can’t still be ourselves and enjoy life! Focus your intention for the new moon cycle on what is of value for you to create in your life. Then maybe write it down and bury it in the earth, asking mother Gaia for her blessing. The new moon energy remains at least a day or so before and after the actual new moon, so there is always time for you to complete this practice.

The goddess Venus

With Venus shining her light down onto the earth when she rises in the West, we are reminded to be aware of the beauty that surrounds us and keep our passion alive. She is about to enter the underworld with her retrograde 13th May and that will create an entirely new story for us.

Take care of yourself now. Indulge in spending time doing the things you love and that make you happy and remember, there is always hope!!

Wishing you all well and new moon blessings.

The Magic of Rainbows

In these strange and unprecedented times there needs to be a symbol of hope and that seems to have be brought to us in the form of a rainbow.

Ever since the outbreak of COVID19 in the uk, rainbows have appeared everywhere. To me, rainbows have always been significant. There is something about the way a rainbow appears following a down pour or a storm. The sun breaks through the clouds and a rainbow in its magnificent glory graces the skys.

Rainbows are a trick of the light as the suns rays reflect the rain and create a prism of light. Rainbows are formed when sunlight is scattered from raindrops into the eyes of an observer. A truly magical happening, dont you think? Rainbows symbolise hope, faith and peace. There have been many different ideas as to the symbolic meaning of seeing a rainbow. The specific beliefs change with time, cultures, and the individual ideas of the person that views them. There is no doubt that when you see a rainbow that it sparks a feeling of peace and tranquility. It can also be symbolic of following your hearts desire and purpose. To reach the end of the rainbow can lead to a sense of fulfillment and dreams coming true, as depicted by the pot of gold protected by the magical leprechauns.

Seeing all these rainbows ignited a thought in me about our so called rainbow children. Throughout the decades of the 80’s 90’s and 2000’s a new generation of spiritual warriors are said to have been born to the Earth. Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow children. Usually, Rainbow children are the children of crystal adults. They are here to build on to what the Indigo and Crystal children began.

Rainbow Children

Rainbow children find delight in colour and find themselves drawn to colourful surroundings and brightly coloured clothes. They are also full to the brim with energy and enthusiasm and are highly creative. Rainbow children tend to be psychic and have the ability to read people’s feelings. They are also natural healers and have a strong ability to manifest what they need. These magical children bring joy and harmony to their families with their big-hearted and forgiving natures and their sweet smiles. They never hold a grudge and return quickly to their sunny nature after any upset. At a young age, Rainbow children are able to express their needs and wants. They are strong-willed and have strong personalities. This means Rainbow children may be perceived as stubborn and impatient. However, the real reason is simply that they understand their own needs so well that they refuse to settle for something else. Rainbow children seem to have an affinity with nature and can sometimes have difficulty consuming animal based products. These are truly special children and can sometimes be labelled with diagnosis like Autism and ADHD.

My hope is that these children are here to change the world. They care more about the welfare of the Earth and those inhabiting it than previous generations and have the power to make a real change. Perhaps once all this is over we will begin to see the magic these individuals will create?

Rainbows in a spiritual sense can relate to many things. For example the 7 main Chakras (the bodies subtle energy centres residing down the length of the spine) signify the colours of the rainbow. If we look at it from this perspective we effectively all have a rainbow within us. This can be perceived as the bridge between the above and below and the place where the magic flows. In this case perhaps we are all rainbow children and have the power to change the world? All we need to do is awaken and be ready to dedicate ourselves to a new future. The same way in which a rainbows colours merge we can create a bright coloured flowing future where we are all together as one.


Wishing you all well.

Full Pink Supermoon Magic in Libra

Rising 7th/8th April we will be graced by the light of the first full moon of spring 2020. But this is not just any moon but a supermoon, meaning it nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth.

It will certainly illuminate everything its light touches!

the Pink Moon isn’t actually pink. The name “Pink Moon” comes from the bloom of ground phlox, a pink flower common in North America, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. It has also been called the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and the Fish Moon.

On a spiritual level this moon symbolises rebirth and growth and links very much with the time of Ostara (sabbath in the pagan wheel of the year) or Easter in the Christian calendar. We have awoken from our slumber of winter and are now ready to emerge from the earth and blossom. However at this particular time everything may feel quite the opposite. In the midst of this global pandemic we are unable to move freely in our lives and are being forced to remain in our homes and away from those we love and care about. This is incredibly difficult for us all and with this full supermoon being in the sign of Libra, it calls for us to find balance, particularly in our relationships. This relates to all your relationships and not just those with others. With other current planetary transits we are heading into an uncertain time of change and reprogramming but, this doesn’t need to feel negative.

Finding balance is about understanding both the light and the dark aspects of life. Yes we are unable to see and physically connect with those individuals that mean so much to us but, technology (which is very much in the forefront with Saturn in Aquarius) has given us the magic to remain in contact and still share our love and gifts with the world. With our goddess planet Venus having just traveled into Gemini she asks us to also see the beauty in this time and the moons light will emphasize this.

Take time to think about the good/positive things right now. Maybe ask yourself a question like: How can I grow during this time? You can do this via journaling or perhaps in meditation.

If you can get outside on the evening the moon is full. (The energy still remains a day or so either side of the actual full moon) feel the crown chakra at the top of the head opening. As if you are opening a door or a lotus flower is beginning to bloom. Begin to feel the light of the moon beaming down and drawing into your being. Your body is filling with light and dispelling any negative energy. Let go of what you no longer need and let the light in. Releasing and replacing. Rebalancing the scales and rebirthing the new.

There are many more practices for release and celebration at full moon times and some magical sharings online. Why not take this valuable time to work with this energy on a deeper level?

Dont forget to charge those crystals in the moonlight!

Wishing you all well.

Heartfelt Moon Magic

February 9th 2020 Full snow moon at 20° Leo.
Full moons are a time for releasing and a time for celebration and what better time to link to this energy than when the moon is in the playful sign of Leo. Known as the snow moon, this particular lunar cycle relates to the time of year when snow was due, reminding us that we are still in the winter period. The wheel of the year has turned to the Sabbath of Imbolc and spring is most definitely on it’s way but please don’t forget that this is still a time for rejuvenation and the coming full moon will provide us with some new energy to explore.
Full moons shine a light on the things that we can release in order to move forwards and this full moon in Leo really brings a sense of self into a clear picture. There is a fair amount of fire energy up in the magical cosmos surrounding this current full moon with Mars in the sign of Sagittarius and both Venus and Chiron in the sign of Aries. This calls us to connect to our playful side, finding the joy and beauty within ourselves and all that we do. So the spot light is truly shinning upon you but with the Suns energy residing in the sign of Aquarius it is also about the collective. Making this weekend a perfect time to be social and to gather our combined wisdom to shift in a positive direction.
Some heartfelt ways to connect to the moons energy:
An Oracle card reading– This morning I pulled a card from the Oracle of The Fairies by Karen Kay http://www.karenkay.co.uk to provide us with a collective reading. These cards are truly amazing and hold a fizz of fairy energy. The card that presented itself was ‘Friendship’ and how synchronistic is this! Connect with others this weekend and find support and encouragement together. I also used the beautiful Moon Mist from http://www.fairylandaromatics.com and a mystical goddess Brigid quartz from Celtic Oracle to support the reading.
Meditation- Drink in the moon magic- Sit comfortably with a lengthened spine. Allow the palms to rest on the legs facing up and begin to take some deep breaths. As you sit here begin to connect to your heart space, noticing if you can begin to feel your heart beat, the sacred rhythm of your inner being. Start to visualise the glistening light of the moon beaming down and descending through the top of your head all the way into your heart space. As this light culminates, feel a sense of pure love and moon magic filling your entire being. Allow this energy to disperse and negatively within and replace it with joy and hope. Sit here in this magic for as long as you feel you need to.
Movement– We can embody this Leo energy by physically connecting to the spine and the heart. Cat/cow pose is a wonderful way to feel into heart whilst creating some spinal Mobility. Come into a table top position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. With an inhale gently allow the belly to descend towards the earth, lift the chest and draw back the shoulders, opening the heart space. On your exhale draw the chin towards the chest, push the tailbone down and round through your upper back, closing the body and drawing the heart inwards. Practice this movement for a few rounds feeling a sense of space within the heart and fluidity within the spine.
May this full moon bring you love, light and joy, enabling your soul to always sparkle.
Wishing you all well.

Imbolc Rebirthing The Magic

This weekend 1st/2nd February sees the turning of the wheel of the year to the Sabbath of Imbolc. Also known as St brigid’s day or candlemass this time marks the beginning of Spring and an awakening of the earth from its winter slumber.
Brigid is a Celtic saint/goddess of fertility, healing, poetry and Smith-craft. She has many names such as; Bride, Breed, Brigantia, Brittania and more. She is said to hold magic in divination and is a patron to both seers and poets a like. Brigid is seen as a solar goddess, triple goddess and earth goddess. She was born of fire and her father was The Dagda and leader of the Tuatha de danaan an ancient and mystical fairy like race of Ireland. This makes it a perfect time to link with the fairy and elemental energies that reside with us here on the earth plane. The time of Imbolc is linked to Brigid as the goddess of fertility and healing and what more does our earth need right now!
Imbolc is a magical time to connect to the earth but also for making time to create and visualise what it is you would like to birth into this world. So what can you do to honour this our sacred planet and re-birth the new within and without? Begin by taking time to meditate and visualise what intention you want to grow. Then follow the magical guidance below.

FIND A SPACE IN NATURE– To connect to nature is the best way to evoke the elemental spirits and the Fae. Find a place outdoors where you feel comfortable. This may even be your own garden and place your bare feet on the earth.
LEAVE AN OFFERING– The fairies and elemental spirits really love gifts and treats. To encourage their energy please leave them something special. At Imbolc we are wanting to help awaken the earth and inspire the coming of spring. When Brigid was born she was said to have drank the milk of a sacred cow who came from the spirit lands. Take some cows milk (or a milk substitute if you are uncomfortable using cows milk) add a little honey and a small sparkly object. Perhaps a small crystal. Trying to ensure what ever you leave will biodegrade or become part of the earth. Causing no harm.
PLANT A SEED TO RE-BIRTH THE MAGIC- Next to your offering plant a small seed. Take time to notice what seeds you are drawn to. For example I love sunflower seeds. What does this particular seed represent to you in the form of creation as it grows?
SACRED MOVEMENT AND GROUNDING- With your feet standing solid on the earth visualise roots drawing down from the feet and penetrating the soil. See these roots through your minds eye moving down through the layers of the earth to the very core. Take deep breaths into your creative cauldron (pelvic bowl) raise your arms to the sky and say these words:

Goddess Brigid
The fire and the Fae
I ask for your blessings
I summon you today.
Awaken this earth
Nourish this land
With this seed I plant
I hold natures hand.

Now visualise your seed sprouting roots and your intentions beginning to grow. Thank the earth and leave your offerings. You can re-visit this place in nature to check the growth of your seed if you wish or you might wish to not return there. The choice is yours.

Sending fairy Imbolc blessings of love and light to you all.

Wishing you all well

The flow of life.

This year has been different. In a way that I really haven’t understood. Life has its ebb and flow just like the sea and we must learn not to go against the waves. You know what it’s like if you do, you wade in and struggle to push your way through something so powerful, it will only force you back. Back to the lessons you have not yet learnt, back to the past you have not yet accepted. Instead we must go with the flow and take time to listen to the guidance from deep within.

As we approach this time of Samhain (Halloween) and the end of the Celtic year the veil becomes thin and we can use this time to connect back with our ancestors, drawing strength and courage to journey through the dark time and nourish ourselves to enable a new beginning.

We are constantly moving through these cycles within cycles and the more we understand them the more we can learn to work with the energy. A great way to harness this energy is to work with the moon. It is an ever constant cycle lasting around 28 days. The beginning of this cycle is a new moon phase and guess what? Tomorrow (27/10/19) brings us a new moon in the sign of Scorpio. The scorpio energy works with the element of water and this is the perfect time to connect to your own creative flow. So ask yourself;

What’s holding you back right now?

What can you let go of?

How can you nourish yourself?

Use this time to go inwards and allow deep healing where it is needed.

Your flow will return.

Always let your soul sparkle xxx

Finding balance in difficult times.

Sometimes life can throw you curve balls. Its true we all hope that life will treat us well and that we can sail through with no issues. Social media tends to show us how wonderful life can be and we see many people having a good time and enjoying the moment, but underneath this there may well be a very different story.

Unfortunately its not all sunshine and roses. we all have to go through tough times and challenges but these always happen for a reason and help us to grow. I have been dealing with difficult times recently and this has left me with a sense of depleted energy and low mood. However, nothing lasts forever. Sometimes we need to recognise that we need space to breathe and time to explore how we can restore a sense of balance.

There are some useful questions you can ask yourself to help with this

1: Are you happy with your life?

2: Are you doing things that make you happy and taking time to take care of you?

3: Is there anything you can let go of that no longer serves you?

4: Is there anything you would really like to be doing or feel called to do?

5: Are you judging yourself? If so stop!!!

Sit down for 5-10minutes in meditation and focus on these questions. Notice what thoughts and feelings come up and following your meditation write down your answers. Don’t worry if the answers do not come straight away. everything takes time and the answers will appear when you are ready!

Take care of yourself and take time to restore your balance. and remember as I said earlier nothing lasts forever.

Much Love

New Year New Yoga

Today was the most perfect start to 2019 beginning with a magical walk with other like minded souls to the top of the world to watch the first sunrise of the year. I have to say the whole experience left me speechless and I felt a sense of anything being possible in that moment standing on top of the hill with my family and friends.

So I am beginning this year with kindness and compassion not just to others but also to myself this is known in Sanskit as Ahimsa and is one of the first Yama’s (Part of Patanjali’s yoga sutras). I will be working through the Yama’s and Niyama’s over the coming months for those who would like to know more.

Also I have set myself 3 positive words to help me create my vision over the following year these are

  • Initiate
  • Improve
  • inspire

What words will you take with you into 2019?

Remember if you need any support or guidance I am always here and I am wishing you all a very magical 2019 full of new adventures.

Yoga on top of the world!!
