“January 31st, 2018 brings us an extremely potent Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse in the sign of Leo.

The last time we experienced a Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse was 36 years ago, but having this type of Eclipse in the sign of Leo is extremely rare and has not occurred in hundreds or possibly even thousands of years.

Whenever we have a rare celestial event such as this, we feel the energy strongly and it has the potential to cause huge ripples and waves in our lives.

The January Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse is not only going to help bring resolution and closure to the last half of 2017, it is also going to open and activate a new energy that we are all going to be working with until the next round of Eclipses in July and August 2018.

Seeing as this Blood Blue Moon Eclipse falls in the fire sign of Leo, it is really going to be guiding us to take charge of our lives and to step into that role of being the King or Queen of our own jungle.

If things get intense, or your sense of security is shaken up under the presence of this Eclipse, remember that this is just so you can make some positive changes in your life. You always have an inner power and inner strength, and tuning into lion or lioness energy and finding your pride is really going to help you.

This Total Lunar Eclipse carries a strong feminine energy and will really help you to connect to that intuitive, softer heart-centered place we all have inside.

In fact, the strong feminine energy around this Lunar Eclipse is likely to bring about global changes for women as well. Under the presence of this Eclipse, we may experience a rise up of feminine power and a focus on equal rights for women.

The Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse is definitely a special celestial event that will really shape the direction and energy of the year ahead. The best thing to do is sit back, surrender and join the Universal flow.”

“If you have been following along, you may have noticed that January has been an extremely busy month! It really seems that the heavens are putting on a show for us as we welcome in the new vibrations and new energy of the year.

The Capricorn New Moon on the 16-17th is no different, and is definitely going to be dazzling us with a line up of five celestial bodies by its side.

At the time of the New Moon, there will be a line up of the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto all in the sign of Capricorn. This rare alignment is known as a stellium.

The January New Moon energy is really going to help all of us to take a leap forward and to use our hard work, skill and knowledge to climb higher and reach further.

This is very ambitious energy that will really help all of us to move forward in the direction of our highest dreams and wishes.

This is the perfect time to take action in your life and begin making small, practical changes in order to bring more joy, abundance, love, success, and whatever other feel-good emotions you want into your life.

Capricorn is a very practical sign, so this is not necessarily about making bold, shocking moves in our lives (unless we feel called to do so), rather it is about making small yet effective shifts to get us closer to where we want to be.

For the last few years we have really had to focus on clearing and planning, but now we are getting a lot of support to actually put our plans into action.

January is one of the most action-focused months of the year, so use this energy to your advantage and don’t be afraid to push yourself a little higher.

New Moon’s are all about setting intentions and planting seeds for the future, so think about what you want to grow in your garden and give your wishes to the night sky.

There are such strong cosmic forces all through January and they are all on your side and there to support you.

Let the world know what you need, let the New Moon know what you need, and then open yourself to the guidance that follows.

Even though it doesn’t always feel like it, life is always on your side, you just have to learn to find the joy as you navigate the highs and lows of your very own mountain.”

Happy New Year! And Happy Full Moon too!!

Full Moon Super

“2018 swings into gear with a Super Full Moon in the sign of Cancer. This Full Moon will be helping to bring closure to the energy of December 2017, and will be guiding you to the theme for the year ahead.

Falling on the 1st-2nd of January, the Super Full Moon in the sign of Cancer is extremely sensitive and intuitive and will be beckoning all of us to take a deeper look at the health of our mind, body and spirit.

If you’ve been neglecting yourself or doing things just to please others, you may find that this lunar energy forces you to take a few steps back and relax.

January’s Full Moon comes as a reminder to nurture and care for yourself and to pay attention to any nagging health concerns. It is also the perfect time to think about how you can honor and care for yourself in the new year.

The January Full Moon is extremely potent, so it is likely that whatever needs your attention is going to be revealed to you in a clear and obvious way. There is no guess work when it comes to this Full Moon, so trust whatever signs come your way and be open to following your feelings.

The strength of this Full Moon is also going to be guiding us to reflect on the year gone by and to prepare for what’s ahead.

Full Moons always guide us to release, so the first few weeks of January 2018 are also going to be a great time to shake off the energy of 2017 so you can start fresh.

Under the light of this Super Full Moon, pay attention to any feelings that may come up for you. Instead of getting caught up in your head, focus on breathing the emotions through the body.

Allow yourself to really experience all you are feeling and see how that helps to shift things.

What you resist persists, so give yourself permission to feel and release anything that needs to go.

Cleanse your energy and ask your spirit guides or higher self to release any energy that is not yours to carry.

Be gentle with yourself and focus on how you can love and support yourself more. When you make yourself your biggest fan, there is no mountain too tall and no feat too great.

2017 brought many new beginnings, and now we are all going to be able to build and create with what we have been given.

2018 is really a year of manifestation and building. It’s a time where we can really take what has been given to us and build upon it in a way that supports our highest goals, dreams and wishes.

It’s a gentle year that will allow us to focus on the wellbeing of our mind, body and spirit, for this is the only way we can be in balance and feel energized and supported to lead the life we desire.”

Happy Full Moon!

Moon vedic

“Ready to cut loose and try something new?  If you have been feeling bogged down in your creative process or having trouble staying inspired, the super moon of Dec 3, 2017 can spark fresh ideas and place unexpected opportunities on your path.  This is a full moon for lovers, artists, and all those who think out of the box, to stake a claim on freedom and self-expression.

In Vedic astrology, the full moon falls in the area of the sky known as Rohini and is symbolized by a bull pulling an overflowing cart of fruit. This full moon carries the abundance of earth and the promise of fulfillment. Rohiniis the divine feminine shakti that energizes all things to grow, literally and metaphorically.

Rohini means “Red Lady,” and is the moon’s favorite wife and muse. Her blissful influence gets the creative juices flowing and connects us to our uniqueness and originality.  Rohini moon is especially inspiring for artists, entertainers and musicians. An aspect from romantic Venus makes this an ideal full moon for dating, reconnecting with loved ones and enjoying music and dance. Latent talents and forgotten passions could awaken at this time, if we are ready to take a step into uncertain territory. This could be the perfect moment to start a creative project, pick up a musical instrument, or try a new way of expressing yourself.
However, the influence of Mercury Retrograde may crimp this full moon’s style for some. Mercury is retrograde Dec 2 – 22.  Well known to delay travel, slow down transactions, and cause misunderstandings, retrograde Mercury can ultimately improve and refine communication skill. This is a time to retrace steps, reconnect with old friends, and improve business and work strategies. Focused concentration and deep study is also supported at this time by the added influence of scrutinizing Saturn.

Stay open and flexible now and remember that important epiphanies are often had when things seem the most uncertain. Under the fertile light of Rohini full moon innovative solutions are around the corner and paths to growth and fulfillment can open in the month to come.”

“The new moon of Nov 18, 2017 is calling for a higher sense of purpose. This lunar cycle stokes a new fire of clarity and reawakens forgotten dreams and intentions.

 In Vedic astrology, this new moon falls in the area of the sky known as Vishaka nakshatra.  Called the “Star of Purpose,”  Vishaka is said to have a special drive to,“achieve many goals in life.”  The symbol of this lunar mansion is a triumphal archway – a doorway for victorious warriors.

Indra, the Vedic chief of the demigods, and Agni, the fire god of spiritual truth, both rule over this new moon.  Together they burn away inhibition and self-doubt by stoking the fire of courage and conviction.

On a greater level, the influence of Kala Sarpa Yoga(Serpent of Time) continues to put pressure on world consciousness. Kala Sarpa Yoga is said to awaken Nagadragons, the primal life force and ancient wisdom that resides deep within us, and within the earth itself. This destabilizing influence can cause shocking events, scandals, earthquakes, and personal shake-ups as well. This is an excellent time to embrace change and transform personal habits and beliefs.

Take heed, the new moon is said to be in its debilitation in transformative Scorpio.  Feelings could be intense so try to be extra patient with yourself and others. With a strong influence of penetrating Mars and thoughtful Mercury(parivartana yoga), this new moon is a radical time to do inventory on your life.  What are you passionate about? Have you been distracted by people or activities that are not in alignment with your true interests?

The Vishaka new moon is an opportunity to hear your true calling and aim for higher goals in life, both materially and spiritually. Connect now to your innate strength. There is infinite power within all of us.”

“The November 3rd/4th Full Moon in the earth sign of Taurus is going to be showering all of us with love and abundance, making it one of the most magical Moon’s of 2017.

November is already a power month seeing as it holds the vibration of 11, and this Full Moon is the perfect way to kickstart all of this wonderful energy.

11 is a sacred number in numerology as it represents divinity, rebirth and higher consciousness. It is also the number associated with angels. This vibration will be with all of us through the month of November, making it the perfect time to turn our dreams into goals and our goals into actions.

Couple this 11 energy with the Taurus Full Moon and the first part of November is going to be glittering with an abundance of opportunities for money, success and romance.

The energy of this Full Moon will be handed to all of us on a silver plate, but we actually have to take action to feel and see this energy in operation for ourselves.

From the beginning of the year, we have all been beckoned to start a new chapter. We have all been called upon in different ways to break free of old patterns and start something new.

Transformation like this can be extremely challenging, and perhaps many of you are feeling zapped and depleted at this point in the year.

This Full Moon comes as a reminder that the Universe is on your side, and that it is there to offer you exactly what you need.

This Full Moon is so bountiful and wonderful, that it is really going to help you regain a lot of your strength and inner knowing as you start making your way through this new chapter in your life.

This Full Moon comes as a reminder that the only person standing in your way is You. This Full Moon reminds us that the world is on your side, you just need to get out of your own way and start living the life that you want without making excuses.

Use the energy of the November Full Moon to rise up and shed all the fears that hold you back from living the life you want. Use this energy to push past any boundaries or barriers that you have created so you can start making steps forward.

This Full Moon favors slow, methodical steps that are aligned with your highest intention. Work with this energy, and very soon you will start seeing tangible, bountiful and abundant results.”

“The October 19th New Moon falls in the sign of Libra and will be calling on all of us to find balance in our lives.

We need both our heart and mind to operate in this world as each holds its own unique intelligence and wisdom. However, many of us get so caught up in our thoughts and mental processes that we forget about the intuitive, softer guidance that our heart can also bring.

Your heart has many messages to offer you, especially under all of this cosmic energy, so use these New Moon vibes to start tuning in and paying attention.

On a day-to-day level, this New Moon will be helping you to understand how you are choosing to spend your energy.

If something has been taking up too much of your time, or you are struggling to keep on top of things, this New Moon may force you to finally create some balance.

Just the same, if you have been procrastinating with a project or struggling to commit to decisions in your life, this New Moon will also be guiding you to find the balance and start taking more action.

No matter what message is delivered to you under this New Moon, it is all going to come back to how you can get into balance and find equilibrium in your inner and outer worlds.

For those who have not found balance in their lives, or for those who have been ignoring the cues from the Universe to get more aligned, this New Moon may deliver some events or feelings that force you to do so.

There is a slightly abrasive energy surrounding this New Moon, which can cause you to feel scattered, off balance and chaotic, but as long as you pay attention to what needs to be done and find your balance, you are going to sail through just fine.

If you find yourself feeling off-sorts with this New Moon energy, ask yourself how you can bring more grounding and balance into your life, and try to approach things one step at a time. Feeling scattered is a clear sign that balance is needed, so pay attention.

In fact, the reason for this intensity is that the Universe is gearing up to present all of us with some much needed gifts and rewards which will come to fruition over the coming months.

All New Moons represent a time of planting seeds and laying down new ideas for the future, and whatever you plant or conjure up during this New Moon is likely to be extremely abundant and prosperous come Full Moon time.

Ultimately, October’s New Moon is extremely lucky and holds a lot of potential, you just need to be patient and pay attention to the cues from the Universe.”
