March 2018 – NEW MOON – Date/Time

Moon & Sun in PISCES (26.530)
Saturday, 17 March 2018 – 11:11 pm AEST (Australia)
View times in your City/Country>

Moon – past, intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Pisces (Water) – Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable,  impressionable

March 2018 – NEW MOON – Energy

Our March NEW MOON falls in the Zodiac sign of PISCES a Water Sign (ruled by Jupiter & Neptune), weaving a feminine, yin, feeling, sensitive & intuitive energy.

During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see.   So with both the SUN (your outer personality) and the MOON (your inner emotional world) both sitting together in PISCES… you are being drawn deep into the darker recesses of your psyche to explore your unconscious mind.

You are being drawn deep into the darker recesses of your psyche to explore your unconscious mind.

During our Piscean New Moon you may experience a heightened sensitivity, feel very emotional or maybe your intuitive instincts will be working on overdrive… so much so, it may at times be hard to discern, what is ‘yours’ and what is ‘others’ stuff.  Water will help you clear the emotions/energy of others from your field (ocean swim, salt water baths, bodybrushing in the shower with salt) and keep you focused on what YOUR unconscious mind is bringing to your awareness.

During our Piscean New Moon your inner-creativity will be heightened (during both your waking & sleep hours) and you may find yourself dreaming solutions to problems in your life or seeing new paths of opportunity beyond your perceived limitations. 

During our Piscean New Moon your inner-creativity will be heightened (during both your waking & sleep hours) and you may find yourself dreaming solutions to problems in your life or seeing new paths of opportunity beyond your perceived limitations.   Allow the Piscean energy to amplify your dreamy state such that it knows no boundary.    Don’t ‘play small’ with your dreams during a Piscean New Moon.

To quote the words of Einstein: 
‘you can’t solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it’.  

So dream big, bold, beautiful & joyously this New Moon in order to create new opportunities from a higher level of consciousness.

We have a number of other Celestial influences that are amplifying the energy of our 17 March New Moon.

Please click on the image right to enlarge & view some of the aspects.. then keep reading below for all the juicy details.

I have included the ‘Galactic Evolutionary Triangle’ on the chart for students/graduates of Aetheric Healing™.

  • Chiron is conjunct the Moon & Sun in Pisces 
  • Galactic Centre on the Ascendant & conjunct Mars
  • Galactic Centre & Mars are square New Moon
  • Equinox is coming up on the 21st March 2018
  • Chiron moving into Aries coming up in April 2018

Chiron conjunct the Moon & Sun

The minor planet CHIRON (the wounded healer) is conjunct our Sun & Moon / New Moon (at 28.130 Pisces).   Chiron represents our deepest wounds, areas in our life/subconscious where we feel/experience lack, shame, low self-worth and insecurity.

You maybe called to heal your inner-child this New Moon as you…

  • Dive deep into you psyche and ACKNOWLEDGE areas of your life that are out of balance
  • Own aspects of your life where you are experiencing pain
  • With clarity finally ‘see’ situations that you have hidden from the world due to fear/shame
  • Recognise WHY you can be so hard on yourself or put up barriers to defend to your inner-battles & internal-conflicts
  • And finally reclaim your fractured Soul and bring HEALING to yourself as Chiron transits these final last degrees in Pisces.

As your deepest wounds are being exposed this New Moon (particularly with the Galactic Centre on the Ascendant & Conjunct Mars)…  this could make for a rather uncomfortable New Moon, particularly if you are fighting against what maybe coming up.

Personally I see this is a great opportunity to LOVE yourself more deeply, rather than being on reactive auto-pilot in your life.   To LOVE yourself enough to FORGIVE, HEAL and move your life forward in ways that are generous, tender & kind to YOU.

Galactic Centre, Ascendant & Mars

During our March New Moon, the Galactic Centre is on the Ascendant & conjunct Mars… PLUS Galactic Centre & Mars are square the Moon & Sun.

As discussed in Crystal Light Healing®, the Galactic Centre is giant black & white whole that sits at the ‘Heart Centre’ of our Milky Way Galaxy.   Our Solar System (along with approx 100+ Billion other Solar Systems) take approx 225 Million years to do one complete revolution around the Galactic Centre. As discussed in Essence of Angels®, the Galactic Centre is 8D consciousness, the central sphere of Metatron’s Cube.  And as we chart in Aetheric Healing™, the Galactic Centre is positioned in the latter degrees of Sagittarius (until it moves into Capricorn in 2225) and is the Source of our Souls highest aspirations and greater evolutionary purpose.

The Ascendant is how you are ‘seen’ in the world, your personality to the world, could even be referred to as the ‘mask’ you wear in front of others (ouch!).   

And Mars is your energy, your drive, your warrior archetype.

SO, what does all this mean ?    The Galactic Centre on the Ascendant is calling you to RISE UP from the crisis, the conflict, the deep wounds that you may have buried (Mars & Chiron) and CHOOSE to SEE a bigger, grander & more beautiful path for your life.  Intuitive PISCES is showing you a softer more nurturing way to live… to achieve a state of harmony.  

During the last few weeks of Chiron in Pisces (Chiron movies into Aries in April 2018), Chiron/Galactic Centre/Mars on this New Moon is inspiring you to reclaim those parts of yourself that may have been shattered, crippled, or locked away and create a NEW Template, a grander vision for your life as a new quest is set to begin in April 2018.  Over the next few weeks you are on the final stretch of the birth canal… make these weeks COUNT as Chiron BIRTHS into Aries mid-April 2018.

Breathe, take time to experience the beauty around you this New Moon… the soft rays of sunlight at dawn, the breeze rustling leaves, the sweet song of birds or the flutter of a butterflies wings.   AND finally allow nature to REVEAL that all this beauty exists within you.  The pain, the hurt, the neglect, the shame, the anger & the spite… these are all stories that can be reframed this New Moon. 

YOU are unique and there is a force greater than you waiting to be realised, waiting to be set free… only YOU hold the keys to freedom all you need do is turn the key.   As our planetary alignments show you the bars & reveal the locks to your emotional cage this New Moon… remember to turn your KEY & set your inner-child FREE !

Equinox & Chiron moving into Aries

Our March New Moon is being influence by our March Equinox coming up on the 21 March 2018 PLUS Chiron moving into Aries in April 2018 for the next 8 or so years !

I will be writing more about this next week… so please sign up to my newsletter below for all the details 🙂

 

Juicy big New Moon Hugs,

International Women’s Day – 8 March 2018

Women are deliciously amazing – a force of nature here to heal, nurture & transform the world.

Whilst EVERY woman is enchanting in their own right, something mystical emerges when women unite.   Together we uplift each other, help each other to grow, support each other through the challenging times and cheer each other on to be our bestest selves and truly shine.

We would much rather collaborate, nurture, support and tenderly guide our fellow SiStars, than be in competition.   We thrive on open communication, caring for one another and intuitively sharing wisdom with grace & ease.

Reclaiming Feminine Power

When a Women fully owns, reclaims and steps into her Feminine Power… this is when the magic happens.  

True FREEDOM is unleashed, creativity is unabashedly channelled and pure raw joy becomes the driving force of life.  You get into your body and I mean you deeply anchor your Soul Presence into every cell of the beingness as you weave the Dream of the Feminine into the fabric of reality.

You/We become BOLD.

You/We become LIBERATED.

You/We become PROVOCATIVE instigators of change.

And You/We become REVOLUTIONARY in our Heartfelt desires.

The Divine Union

When we reclaim our Feminine Power, the world changes.  

The scales are no longer tipped toward a Patriarchal system, but rather a loving DIVINE UNION of the Feminine & Masculine emerges.  A perfectly balanced Yin & Yang – a union that becomes greater than the sum of the individual parts.

Through Divine Union, we honour the different qualities, the essence of polarities of the Feminine & Masculine.   We respectively honour the character and inherent nature of the other and marvel at how energy seamlessly flows back and forth in a sacred dance of joyous expansion.

As Women when we rise up, let go of the doubt and BELIEVE we are worthy to fully SHINE our Feminine Power… we restore the harmonic balance of Divine Union.   We let go of the need to fight.  We let go of the uphill battle to be seen, heard & considered equal.   The battle comes to an end as a force greater than any one individual rises up from Heart of Creation itself and drives a loving Divine Union once again.

This doesn’t mean that we do nothing to foster & flourish equality.  But rather it means we step out of the battle ground of anger, hurt, humiliation, separation & victimhood.  We choose to collaborate.  We choose to come together in a gentle yet inherently wise show of intelligent strength that can move mountains. 

International Women’s Day – 8 March 2018

My loving vision for YOU this International Women’s Day is that you get unstuck from the old story of struggle, survival, competition & limitation.

YOU are an unbridled reservoir of unimaginable potential. 

You are powerful.
You are loving.
You are sensually radiant.
You can do/be ANYTHING that you want… all you need do is believe in the radiant power of YOU.

Its time to unfold your deepest desires and value yourself and your inherent gifts.  
AND its time to breathe in the life-giving support system of our SiStarhood to champion us on in fulfilling our deepest desires.

 

Happy International Women’s Day to YOU my blessed SiStar,
xx Simone

Full Moon in Virgo – 1/2 March, 2018

After NO Full Moons in February 2018, March 2018 marks a rare event with TWO Full Moons falling in the same month – the first happens on March 1st/2nd and the second on March 30th/31st.  Whilst two Full Moons in a calendar month is rare, we also experienced two Full  Moons in January 2018!

The Crystals in the image above are PERIDOT, a most divine ally to help you anchor the potential of our 1-2 March 2018 Full Moon. 

  • Peridot Crystal Light Healing® Spirit Wisdom is joyful, playful and full of luminescent grace.  Peridots ‘sunny disposition’ aids detoxification and cellular rejuvenation – sort of like a youth elixir.  Make a Peridot Crystal Essence this Full Moon to support cleansing & vibrant wellbeing.
  • Peridot Essence of Angels® Liquid Light Template ripples out the frequency of Archangel Michael & Archangel Raphael.  These sacred templates help you to honour your self-worth, set strong boundaries, find resilience during challenging times and ‘see’ the cause of any dis-ease within your life whilst practically calling forward potential solutions.  Use these Essences during your Full Moon Meditations / Ceremonies to amplify the energetical potential of our March Full Moon.

March 2018 FULL MOON – Date/Time

Moon VIRGO (11.230)  &  Sun in PISCES (11.230)
Friday, 2 March 2018 – 10:51 am AEST (Australia)
View times in your City/Country>

Moon – past, intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Virgo (Earth) – Organised, practical, diligent, cautious, sensible, exacting
Pisces (Water) – Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable,  impressionable

March 2018 FULL MOON – Energy

During the VIRGO Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in Pisces.

During this Full Moon we are being called to let-go of the need to control every minute detail of our lives and to ALLOW the dream to foster magic through our Hearts.

Sometimes our ego wants the dream to happen a certain way… I am sure you have seen the movie ‘The Secret’ !    But this Full Moon is one of allowing the dream to be made manifest in perfect divine order, for the blissful unfoldment of the greater all.

We may ‘think’ that our dreams HAVE TO follow a certain path and our ego delights in proving how ‘spiritual’ we are by forcing/controlling an outcome.  

But when we let go of the ‘HAVE TOs’ and surrender to the feeling of the DREAM, what unfolds is a reality more beautiful, more luminescent and more fulfilling than what our limited ego ever thought was possible.  

In this process of letting go of every precise (and often exhausting) minute detail and falling into the warm & oozy feeling of your intuition, you may find that the process of bringing your DREAM into form takes on a few curve-balls along the way.   You may find you will be faced with choices of letting go of something that you know in your heart is not for you, even though your mind/ego is grappling with cutting something loose as you may have invested time, money, energy, love into it. 

Letting go is not failure, but rather a recognition of lessons learnt & wisdoms gained and then creating the space for a new Golden Door of opportunity to open for you.

During this FULL MOON, simply SURRENDER and allow yourself to see the PERFECTION in the IMPERFECTIONS.  Let go of how YOU think it should be done and melt into the desires of your Sacred Heart.

Interestingly our March 1-2 Full Moon falls at 11 degrees (Moon 11 degrees Virgo, Sun 11 degrees Pisces) in our 2018 Universal 11 Year in Numerology.   The number ’11’ is a Master Number in Numerology – ‘Master’ meaning it is of intense/high vibrational frequency and works within the aetherial, magical and transcendental realms of creation.  The number 11 is amplifying the energy of this months Full Moon… heightening our intuition & sensitivities.  

One thing to be aware of this Full Moon is being too over-zealous with analysing every feeling.  Neptune is in opposition of our Full Moon, so your psychic attunements maybe unduly influenced by your subconscious fears.   Hmm… this may mean confused signals, mixed feelings & weird dreams!

On a very practical note, Virgo rules our Health & Work.   This is a great Full Moon to reflect on areas of your life that maybe draining your energy and change your work/lifestyle habits to be more supportive of the body temple.   Make a resolution this Full Moon to get more sleep, start that detox (was that a New Year resolution ???) and set better boundaries in your work / life balance.

 

Happy Full Moon & Juicy big Lunar hugs,
xx Simone

Energy of Full Moons & New Moons

Spiritual Significance of our Lunar Phases

Our Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence Earth’s tides and the water within our bodies – arousing our emotions, behaviours and our consciousness.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

New Moon

The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month.

During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see.  As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated. 

Both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.

The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle.  In the darkness, the fertile ground, you plant the seeds of your heartfelt desires on the New Moon, consciously focusing your Mind/Body/Spirit on the ‘feeling’ of your desires.

Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and writing down your intentions & inner-most heartfelt Manifestation Desires for the new lunar cycle.  Sign your Manifestation Desires with the affirmation ‘And it is So’.  Proclaim your manifestation desires to the Universe by saying or chanting them aloud.   After your ceremony, place your handwritten manifestations desires on your personal crystal alter or bedside table or even under your pillow.

Hint:  As an added boost, during your New Moon Manifestation Desire Ceremony use our Essence of Angels® Golden Quantum Essence to align your Heart/Mind with the Aetheric Field in all directions of time & space.  Your ripples of intent imprint the field, and bring your manifestation desires into physical form.   You could also program a Crystal or create a Crystal Grid as per Crystal Light Healing® and use this to amplify the energy of your Manifestation Desires.

Waxing Moon

The Moon is in its WAXING Phase as it transitions from New Moon to Full Moon – hence the illuminated portion is gradually increasing in size. 

During the Waxing phase (Crescent, First Quarter, Gibbous) the energy of your New Moon ‘Intentions, Goals & Envisionings’ are building.   During this time, allow your dreams, curiosity & wonderment be your guides in bringing your Manifestation desires into form. 

Release any fears or control you may have in trying to make your Manifestation Desires happen… instead delight in the feeling of experiencing what your Manifestation Desires FEEL like from the inside out.

Invite synchronicity into your life, believe in magic, see a world more beautiful through your Heart… and surrender to the gifts of the Universe.  Know deep within your Heart that you are a Diving Being of eternal light & love and allow abundance, joy, laughter & happiness guide your days.

Full Moon

The FULL MOON marks the mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle. 

During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.  In addition, the Moon & Sun are on opposite sides of the zodiac on a Full Moon… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The energy of a Full Moon (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified.  When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility. 

The  is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities and through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

Also have gratitude for your Manifestation Desires – for those things that you have manifested & for those things that will come into form at a later date in divine timing and for the highest good of all.  Remember, your Manifestation Desires may show up in unexpected ways and ‘look’ different to your original Desires… as your ‘feelings’ create something more beautiful, more sacred & divine for your greater purpose on Earth.   You may feel guided to bury your Manifestation Desires in honour of your surrender to a force greater than you.

The Full Moon is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate. As you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.  

Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with reflected solar vibrations.

Hint:  As an added boost, during your Full Moon Bathing / Candle Ceremony use our Ancient Healers Essence to awaken your consciousness to the Ancient Ones that have walked the Earth, to your eternal Ancient Healer SElf and to the field of Infinite Intelligence through you. You could also create a Crystal Grid or bathe in a Structured Water Crystal Bath as per Crystal Light Healing® to cherish the beauty of the present moment and let go of all that is rising up to be released.

Waning Moon

The Moon is in its WANING Phase as it transitions from Full Moon back to New Moon – hence the illuminated portion is gradually decreasing in size. 

During the Waning phase (Gibbous, Last Quarter, Crescent) the energy is slowing moving inward, a time for inner-reflection, review and contemplation..   During this phase, from a place of non-judgement and being the ‘observer’ reflect on every aspect of your life – relationships, work, creativity, abundance, health, well-being etc..   Discern which areas of your life are in harmonic balance and flowand which areas feel stifled, strained or in a state of struggle & dis-ease.

Honour your strengths, your acomplishments, your realisations, your personal growth & expansion during this cycle.  Recognise within yourself how your personal evolutions contributes in service to something greater than you… ‘see’ how your personal ripples of love weave magic in the lives of others.

In addition, as the moon is transits through its last crescent in the days leading up the New Moon, recognise within yourself any thoughts, behaviours, negative thinking, bad habits or anxiety/stresses that have come to your attention this cycle.  LOVE your shadow with wholeheart and CHOOSE to not let these ‘stories’ inhibit you from radiantly shining your light.  And remember to REST & nurture YOU ahead of the next New Moon Cycle.

Step out of the Waning Moon and into the next New Moon Cycle with a fresh & awakened vision for yourself.    ‘See’ a greater potential of your Soul and have the courage to follow your Heartfelt desires.

Heart Retreat Photos – February 2018

Last week I had the pleasure of facilitating our first Life Mastery Heart Retreat for 2018, here on the Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Australia… our delightful home !

Our Heart Retreats are an opportunity to press ‘pause’ in your life.  A time to savour silence, get back in touch with the healing sounds of nature, rediscover your soul song and nourish the body, mind & soul throught lightrition.  Our Retreats take you on a deep dive into your Heart, a sacred reconnection with ancient wisdom to emerge after 7 days into the grandest version of the greatest vision you have ever held for YOU!

There is something so very humbling and reverently sacred about each and every Retreat.  It is quite amazing when you feel into the energy, a group of people who don’t know each other at the start, travelling to attend our Retreat from all corners of the globe… coming together in Heart Space to share, awaken, learn & grow from each other. 

Whilst everyone’s backgrounds/lives are so diverse, there is a silver aetheric cord that connects us all… a greater vision as to WHY each of us has been called together as a group.  After a couple of decades of facilitating gatherings, I am still very much in awe of the synchronicities, awakenings & profound leaps that happen on retreat.  Oh I feel so very blessed to be able to do this work.

For our February Retreat, our group travelled from New Zealand, United States/Costa Rica & Tasmania to attend our Retreat.  Sharing with you a photographic glimpse of our February 2018 Heart Retreat in the hope a glimmer of the Light, LOVE & Joy that was woven during our time together ripples out into your life too 💗  Now it’s funny, we didn’t get to take many photos as we were all so caught up in the moments that the thought of photos often didn’t cross our minds that often… but fortunately between us all, we did capture of few special twinklings to share with you.

Life Mastery Graduates

LOVE these photos from the last day of our Life Mastery Heart Retreat.  Congratulations to all attendees who graduated from our Heart Retreat as Internationally Certified Master Teachers in both Crystal Light Healing® & Essence of Angels® – through our UniversalLifeTools.com Wisdom School 🌟

LOVE LOVE LOVE that these divine people are carrying the torch of LOVE and shining it brightly out into the world.  Not everyone who attends our Heart Retreats are interested in teaching… however these vibrant Souls are ready & willing to step into the arena & share with the world.  Look out United States / Costa Rica, New Zealand & Tassy… tsunami of LOVE Waves are headed your way 💗

Nature Divas – Earth, Fire, Air & Water

During our week long Life Mastery Heart Retreat, each day we headed outdoors for our Nature Sessions.  Sunrise walks, Yoga, Meditation, Ocean Swims, breathing in fresh Mountain Air and closing each day in a state of blissful Grace as the Sun set.

There is something so healing, centering and profoundly life-changing when we take time each day to drink in the energy of the Elementals, listen to the spirit medicine of the animal kingdom and surrender to the messages of nature.

Big juicy gratitude hugs to Suzi Joy Coombes (Suzi graduated as a Teacher through our school in 2008) who gracefully joined us for one of our morning sessions.  Suzi used her voice to attune and merge our beingness with the songlines & wisdoms of the land, water, air & rising sun.   It was quite a profound experience for us all… and lovely to play with her crystal bowl too 🙂

At sunset on St Valentines Day we climbed Mt Tinbeerwah (meaning ‘Rise Up’ in our local Aboriginal Gabi Gabi dialect). At the top of the mountain, where via a 360 degree view we could see every sacred place that we had visited over the past week, we chose to set our Souls free.

On Mt Tinbeerwah we chose to ‘Rise Up’ and be a force of LOVE, a wave of joy and a spirit of commUNITY in service to something greater than us.  As synchronicity had it, a group of people were singing ‘love songs’ to the accompaniment of a guitar as a distant lightning storm flashed on the horizon… LOVE does find a way into our Hearts (and out of our Hearts) when we choose to have the courage to say YES to our greater potential.

At sunset on another evening, we visited the shores of the Noosa River and were mesmerised by the ‘tipsy’ antics of the Rainbow Lorrikeets at happy hour.  A loving reminder to be joyful and see the rainbow light in everything.   If you are struggling in any area of life, Rainbow Lorikeet spirit medicine helps you to ‘see’ your problem from a higher perspective & joyously open the heart to infinite solutions.   A reminder that fun, laughter, joy & play are your guides across the rainbow bridge of wisdom.

Lightrition, Crystalline & DNA Activated Food

I am passionate about Fermentation and using Crystals & Essences to activate/prepare food.  Food not only tastes so much better when you activate the release of its ‘Lightrition’ properties, but it also genetically meets your individual nutritional needs – body, mind & spirit.

Diet comes from the latin word ‘dieta’ meaning ‘daily way of life’ and Nutrition comes from the latin word Nut/Nux meaning ‘eating from the seed of life’ – so eating in the light is a natural part of your daily way of life.  This means stepping outside of all the mis-information about the perfect die-t, letting go of what other people tell you you can & can’t eat, or feeling ‘shame’ when eating a so called ‘wrong food’.  

Eating as a natural part of life is about being present, listening to your body, tuning in to your emotions/mental patterns… and experiencing the lightrition of food from a fifth-dimensional resonance.  Only YOU instinctually know & naturally attract to you the foods that meet the requirements of your energetic blueprint and that help you to flourish in all areas of your life.  So I LOVE sharing & teaching HOW to actively work with foods Lightrition to return to your natural ability to eat in the LIGHT as a daily part of life.

We had sooo much fun in the kitchen activating foods lightrition that we forgot to take photos of everything we made (kind of a good sign I think)… but lucky we managed to capture a few random shots.

Wisdom Teachings

Prior to attending our our Life Mastery Heart Retreat, all participants study Crystal Light Healing® & Essence of Angels® online (both of these eCourses are included as part of enrolment in our Retreat).   Then during our daily Wisdom Teachings Retreat Sessions, we submerge ourselves in the practical & expansive application of our Crystal Light Healing® & Essence of Angels® within our lives.

Our Wisdom Teaching sessions are an opportunity for students to go deeper & expand higher than they have ever gone before.  Our Sessions are about taking the teachings (the head stuff) and living these wisdoms through the Heart, breathing these wisdoms through every cell and stepping into a lightness of being and blissful sacred presence. 

Upon completion of our Life Mastery Heart Retreat, all our graduates are certified (and provided with an extensive array of resources) to teach Crystal Light Healing® & Essence of Angels® Internationally.  Though many attendees prefer to attend our Life Mastery Heart Retreats for their personal healing and to shine more fiercely, more sensually and more radiantly than they have ever done before ☆

Here are a few photos from our Wisdom Teaching Days…

What a glorious week we have ahead – a New Moon in Aquarius, our first Solar Eclipse for the year (after last months Lunar Eclipse) and we also step into Chinese New Year – the year of the Yang Earth Dog.   PLUS… I am blissing out facilitating our first Heart Retreat for the year… oooh a week of Heaven ♡

You may be wondering why the picture above is of a Star Fish ?   Well this morning as I was lying in bed & contemplating today’s post about the celestial energies of this week, when I fell into a lucid dream and became a Star Fish.   Star Fish dreaming energy medicine reminds us to embrace the perfection of the moment, the beauty of the present, no matter what ‘chaos’ maybe happening around you. Arms & legs outstretched face the world with humble presence, courageous heart and trust in the grand Cosmic plan of life.   Surrender to all life has to offer you – Earth, Fire, Air, Water & Spirit –  and allow miracles to unfold with grace & ease.

So as we enter the Chinese New Year of the Yang Earth Dog this coming Friday 16 February 2018 (on the second New Moon of 2018), I am going to take head of Star Fish dreaming medicine. 

My intention is to mindfully move & flow with this years cosmic tides, take more time to rest & have fun & ground the bigger visions of my life in preparation for 2019 year of the Water Pig.

New Moon + Solar Eclipse

Our Chinese New Year NEW MOON this week fall in Aquarius – creating an energy of visionary, enlightened thoughts for our personal life, our families and our community.   This New Moon will be a time to reflect on why we are here, and finding new ways of how we can authentically live our truths.  

During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun.  Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon.  During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.

During a New Moon, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.

Our New Moon is also also a PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE – amplifying the energy of this months New Moon.  The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past. The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.  

With our New Moon – PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in Aquarius, we will be drawn to gaze into our inner world, see the gifts of our shadow and emerge from the eclipse ready to step into our greater potential.  Just as there is darkness before the dawn… as we emerge from the darkness of the New Moon Solar Eclipse – the LIGHT of our HEARTS will illuminate the way forward.

As we emerge from the darkness of the New Moon Solar Eclipse – the LIGHT of our HEARTS will illuminate the way forward.

After last months Total Lunar Eclipse, the energy building into this weeks New Moon Solar Eclipse feels VERY intense, but also has the potential to be wildly transformational… should we choose to surrender to the eclipses greater potential. 

I look forward to sharing this coming Friday’s New Moon Solar Eclipse energy with our Heart Retreat participants… I have a something special planned, out in nature on our own private beach.  Whilst you may not be with us physically, we will send a wave of LOVE to you all aetherically this New Moon Eclipse.

All my LOVE for a delightful week of Soul-FULL joy,

xx Simone

The Seasons of Ageing – Life Transitions

I am feeling a little teary today.  In actual fact I have been experiencing waves of teariness for well over a year now.  There isn’t any one thing that I can necessarily pinpoint to feel sad about, these are simply waves of emotion that wash through me and flood my heart & soul.

The tears can be tears of happiness, tears of beauty or tears of joy.  They can also be tears of sadness, of loss, of grieving and even blubbering tears of deepest sorrow.

I am learning to surrender to these waves, to feel deeply into them, the messages that they are bringing me… allowing the tears to flow and the e-motion to be released with grace & ease.   Truthfully though… sometimes the tears don’t look all that pretty, let alone exude a vision of grace.

Peri-Menopausal Season of Life

As I transition through this peri-menopausal season of my life, I really am in awe of our human experience.  For me, entering mid-life and making the choice to age gracefully has unexpectedly brought with it so many break-throughs, twists, turns & inevitably decisions to be made. 

I am changing, I am certainly not the person that I used to be. I am vying to be fully present and comfortable with this new me.  Though vying is probably not the best word as this denotes struggle & striving, something I have no interest for anymore.  And as for the ‘new me’… I actually think this is the real me, the wisdom me, the me that seeks freedom to simply be me beyond the expectations of others or any desire to conform.

As I reflect back on my 20’s, 30’s and even 40’s, I always had so much to do.  So much to birth.  So much to become.  So many things on my list of busi-ness.   The juggle of work, family, children, relationships & friendships.  The hunger to change the world – oh and it had to have be done yesterday of course!  The need to keep moving, pushing, onward & upward in pursuit of my goals & dreams.  I saw & felt within my heart a greater potential for this world, for humanity… and I was relentless in my pursuit to bring these visions & dreams into reality.  I felt my life on Earth was so so short, so much to be done, how can I possibly do it all ?

And then there was the struggle to balance finances whilst I made it all happen, to be fully present in my life, to wear the super-woman / mother / wife / teacher /author badge of honour.  To have it all.  Be it all.  Do it all.  Oh I feel weary just thinking about it all.  How I wore myself so thin in order to create a meaningful legacy for future generations, whilst also sculpting a nourishing, present & harmonious life for myself & my family…  there is an oxymoron in all of that somewhere!

A message from the Universe

Yesterday was a rainy old Sunday and I was drawn into my apothecary to make up Essences ahead of next weeks Heart Retreat.  For many years I used to delegate this task such that I could focus on other work (the gazillion other things I had on my ‘to do list’).  But these days I am more drawn to focus on what I LOVE to do… and letting my inner-child free to create Essences for others is not only joyful but such a humbling privilege.  

After my playtime came to an end, to bring a little joy to the clearing up I pressed play on an audio book that I had been meaning to finish for a while now.  The author asked us to say the first word that popped into our heads that describes how we feel in this present moment.  Now whilst I would love to share with you all that the first word that popped into my mind was ‘Joyous’ or ‘Loving’ or ‘Happy’ or even ‘Fulfilled’.  Do you want to really know what was the first word that popped into my mind ? 

Ouch, I am even cringing as I write this… the word that popped into my mind was ‘Exhausted’. 

There, I said it.  E X H A U S T E D.   

Exhausted.  It wasn’t the kind of word that could have been interpreted as meaning in need of a little rest, a quick forty-winks and all would be well again. The word felt exactly like it sounded… weary, spent, in need of soul-rest.

The funny thing is, on the surface I don’t feel exhausted at all… but I do know deep within me there is a Soul-exhaustion as I grieve a life I am leaving behind and transition into new beginnings.

I think the word ‘Exhausted’ was a way for my Higher-Self, my Soul, my Light to say…

‘Hey Beautiful One, during this time of huge change in your life do what makes you feel good. 
Do what makes your heart sing. 
Do what is nourishing to your Soul. 
Do what brings you pleasure. 
Let go of the ‘have-tos’, anything that drains your energy.
Let go of anything that isn’t supportive of YOU in this present moment. 
To Soul-fully transition succumb to more beauty & pleasure in your life. 
More time Human Being and less time doing’.  

The ‘Transition’ before the Birth

Just like in childbirth itself, before a new life emerges there is a space of transition.  An in-between time.  A time of surrender, of tuning in to a force greater than you in order to know/feel the divine time of when to push and the divine time of when to rest.

For me at this time in my life, this time of transition, I am seeking peaceful rest, stillness & Heart-Full moments.

I desire long walks in nature to feel the beauty of the Earth under my feet.
I desire more sleep.
I desire more time spent waking up in the morning cuddling my darling and more time spent making love on a lazy afternoon.
Nude swimming.  Moon baking.   Flirting with my beloved.
Hearty belly laughs with my children.

I desire more quality time with those I love.
Heartfelt chats over a home cooked meal. 
Giggles over a glass or two of vino. 
I desire to move my body to music and feel the rush of the universe through me… to dance like no one is watching and sing like no one is listening. 

I desire the space to contemplate, to be spontaneously creative, to follow an inkling of curiosity from my heart (not my head).

I desire quiet. 
Actually quiet is a craving felt deep in my bones in this moment. 
A lulling quiet of birdsong, wind in the trees, the roar of the ocean at midnight & the sound of steam rising up from my tea on a cool morning.

And I desire alone time, and I mean hours & hours of alone time to reflect, rest & integrate.
The last 50 years of my life has been a fantastical journey. 
Where is my head/heart for the next 50 years?

It is a little scary.  How does all of this practically work?  I still have bills to meet, food to buy, a life that continues on despite my choice of stillness.  But I trust that this process of inner-work, this space to connect with a force greater than me and a deep desire to emerge into this next season of my new life will come to pass with graceful presence if I just get my head out of the way and follow my Heart.

My new Life

As you have probably gathered from this post… there are many new changes being birth in my life/work at this time.  I have no dates on these changes, no ‘deadlines’ I must meet (that is such an interesting expression ‘deadline’, fodder for another post I think) and no timetable for release.

Firstly, I am in creative heaven dreaming into existence our new UniversalLifeTools.com website.   I have been working on our new website for a few months now and it is looking/feeling so very beautiful.  I don’t mean this in an egotistical way, but in a way that really expresses the heartfelt joy, vision, grace & presence of my life, my work and our school that is being birthed. 

Gone are the days of working late into the early hours of the morning to make things happen by an official date.  I am rolling with each day, getting into the zone, creating through my Heart and letting the Universe breath through me the pace of the creations.   Our new website might launch March 2018, it maybe April 2018… who knows the birth date.  Just like babies, I am allowing ‘her’ to set her entrance date into the world, I am surrendering to divine timing.

Until our new UniversalLifeTools.com website is launched, I am also limiting my work in other areas… such as public talks, webinars & community events.  I plan on spending a lot less time on my emails too… even though I LOVE your connections, spending hours each day responding to you queries is just a little too much for me at this time. 

Also gone are my days of multi-tasking – I must say I used to be the holder of ‘first prize’ in this category.  I have discovered that when I say ‘no’, lightning doesn’t strike me and in actual fact the world still continues to turn.  Between time with my gorgeous family, husband & friends… as well as creating space for this big transition… there really isn’t the space to try and squeeze in anything else.  And to be honest, I have no desire to ‘squeeze’ anymore, I really am seeking restful expansion.

My desire at this time is to follow the path of pleasure. 
What turns me on. 
What compels me to show up to life and be my bestest self.
What nourishes me at the deepest level.  

My Heart Retreats are experiences that do just that.  These have become blissful blessings in my life, one of the most nourishing things I have ever ventured into. 

I have my first Heart Retreat for 2018 starts next week (we still have one room left in case your Heart is calling) and then I have a second Heart Retreat later in the year in October 2018. 

I look forward to bringing myself, my Heart, my tenderness & my presence to our Heart Retreats this year. 

Thank you to YOU my beautiful community, our tribe, our village of Soul-FULL lovers.  Thank you for kindly giving me & for holding space for me to transition and emerge from my chrysalis with outstretched wings.  

Whilst the greater vision of my work/my life still remains the same at a Soul level, the ‘how’ of bringing these visions to life is changing rapidly.  I look forward to updating you all regularly on my discoveries & experiences on ageing gracefully… and opening my Heart to you as we journey together.  I LOVE you.

InnSæi : The Power of Intuition

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of watching the movie ‘Innsæi: The Power of Intuition‘.

Innsæi (pronouced  Inn-Sigh-Ee) is an Icelandic word that means INTUITION.  The ability to sense/feel from deep within ourselves and perceive the world beyond our logical mind and five senses.  In actual fact, Innsæi has multiple meanings in Icelandic:

The sea within.
To see within.
And to see from the inside out.

The Sea Within… is the borderless nature of our inner world, a constantly moving world of vision, feelings and imagination beyond words.

To See Within… means to know yourself, and to know yourself well enough to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes.

And to See from the Inside-Out… is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world.

Intuition

The multiple meanings of the word ‘Innsæi’, foster a deep richness & divine connection – helping us to understand how we can embrace & flourish our Intuition.

Intuition is a natural & mystical part of being human.   When we harness the power of tuition, new doors of potential & possibility open as we let go of living/thinking from ‘within-the -box’ and begin to create solutions to life’s challenges from a higher place of awareness.

It sounds easy, but in such a busy fast-paced world, people are becoming more distracted from their feelings every day.  There is such a rush of information that is over-stimulating our senses, more and more people are turning-off to how they feel just to be able to cope in a world that is so ‘noisy’.

Distractions may take the form of technology, busy lives (no one seems to have time any more), the use of alcohol & drugs to numb the pain of feeling and sleep deprivation as a means of control/to get things done.  People tend to live their lives on remote control, in their heads, cut-off from their emotions.  Feeling is often ‘shut-down’ in order to cope in such an overstimulated time-poor world.

So how do we embrace Intuition, whilst functioning in the world today ?

Your Intuition Muscles

You have probably heard the saying ‘use it, or lose it’  or even ‘practice makes perfect’.  Well, we can view Intuition the same way.  If we are to step into the greater potential of Intuition, then we must flex our Intuition Muscles on a daily basis… and in fact create lives that incorporate Intuition in everything that we do.

Just like water, Intuition is essential for life… or at least essential for lives that are fulfilling, joyous and connected in body, mind & Spirit.

In the movie Innsæi,  Malidoma Patrice Somé, a West African elder and author, stated that “intuition binds us together. Without it we lose our sense of purpose and belonging.” 

I couldn’t agree more.  In a world accelerating at a deliriously fast pace, we must never forget each other, our connections, our feelings, our belonging… and it is intuition that guides us back every time to what really matters.  People.  Humans.  Hearts.  Feelings.  Connection.  Empathy.  Wisdom.

A personal experience…

After the watching the movie Innsæi, I accompanied our daughter to the stationery shop to purchase her back-to-school goodies.  And I too had a few things to pick-up, there is something exciting about new stationary to start a new year (but that’s another story!).

As I walked down one of the stationery isles, suddenly a small silver ruler caught my attention.  Now I had no rulers on my list, I wasn’t in any need of a ruler what-so-ever and so my rational mind proclaimed ‘no, you don’t need this, don’t put this ruler in your shopping trolley’. 

But then something within me, a soft voice, a feeling, a gentle nudge was urging me to purchase this ruler.  Reflecting on the movie Innsæi that I watched the previous day, i did put the ruler in my trolley and said to myself ‘this will be interesting, lets see why this ruler needs to come home with me!’

On our return home, our daughter started unpacking all her stationery and readied her bag for school the next day.  Suddenly, a big ‘Oh No’ came booming from her bedroom.  She was upset that she had forgotten something on her list.  I am sure you have guessed what that was (or may have intuited), it was a ruler.  But not a standard plastic/wooden ruler, the ruler that she had on her list was a silver 15 cm ruler EXACTLY like the one I had purchased hours earlier.  As you can imagine, she gave me a big hug when I declared ‘well this ones for you then!’

Whilst this small personal experience may seem insignificant (there is so much more to life than rulers), when we extrapolate out the bigger impact & role that intuition can play in our lives, we can see that from little things, big things grow.

As Marina Abramović, the grandmother of performance art stated in the movie Innsæi,  “in order to create something new human beings need to go into the unknown”.  Intuition is the guide that takes us there and reaches out a helping hand to show us the way.

Flourish your Intuition

With so much knowledge available at a fingertips at any one moment, intuition can help us filter through the noise of information and guide our daily lives from a place of wisdom.

To help you flex your intuition muscle, lean into intuition and invite intuition into your daily rhythms, here are some thoughts to flourish intuition in every aspect of your life.

  • Silence.   Start your day inviting silence into your space.  Turn off all the noise – tv, smartphone, all the things that beep, buzz & ring, EVERYTHING.  Intuition cannot be heard/felt when we are overwhelmed and stimulated by stuff.  Invite silence to start your day either in the shower, a short meditation in bed, a cup of tea watching the sunrise or as you watch that early bird in the tree.  Quiet the mind and invite your inner-voice to guide your day – that soft, loving, gentle, yet powerful wisdom of truth.   See how your day gracefully moves into flow when you start your day guided by something greater than the physical/rational mind.
  • Breathe.  We all do it, yet we rarely feel into our breaths deeply and connect with the breath of divinity.   During your time of morning silence – breathe.  Breathe a breath that draws up deep from within the Earth and into your Heart.  With each breath, feel the breath of life, of wisdom, of love, of infinite intelligence streaming through you.  To breathe means to be alive, to be connected to something greater than you from a place of Grace.  Breathe the Great Cosmic Breath of Life.
  • Presence.  Put down that remote control (and I don’t just mean the Tv kind).  Periodically throughout your day simply stop, breathe, feel and check-in with yourself.  What are you thinking?  What is your mental chatter saying?  What are you doing?  How are you feeling?  Become aware of yourself in the present moment, your breathing, tension in the body, emotions etc.   As a non-judgemental observer, determine if you are going about your day as if on remote control.  Do you find yourself mulling over the past or having anxiety or stress about the future.  Have you ‘checked out’ of your sense of feeling in order to dutifully perform daily tasks, cope with family stressors, or that challenging boss.  If you find you aren’t present, then invite in silence, breathe and bring your awareness, your attention back into the now.  Notice how being present & honouring how you feel begins to dilute the stress and offer solutions with gratitude & ease.
  • Nature & Instinct.  Nature has an innate intelligence and is a catalyst for us to get in touch with our own.  A bird knows when to fly North, a plant knows when to flower and a dog knows to eat grass/fast if feeling unwell.   This same instinct, this same intuitive knowing, this same connection to a greater wisdom is our natural state… but noise, life, busyness, ego chatter & distractions blot the intelligence out.  Spend time Earthing, being Silent, Breathing & becoming Present in Nature – ideally daily, or at very best on weekends.  Let a force of LOVE from the natural world guide every thought, word & deed in your daily life.   As we come into our Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 31 January, consider using Celestite (Crystal Light Healing®) to help foster tenderness, sensitivity & intuition.
  • Trust.  Start small.  Find your own ‘ruler moments’ and build your innate ability to tune into the soft guiding hand of intuition.  Become aware of how your intuition speaks to you – is it a feeling in your stomach, a soft whisper, a strong pull toward an outcome or an all over body feeling of simply ‘knowing’.  Watch what happens when you dismiss a moment of intuition and observe what happens when you follow intuition.  Simply surrender to the magic, water it, fertilise it and watch it flourish.

Succulent Wildness, Chiron Return & eating Mangoes Naked

Eating Mangoes Naked

After my morning beach walk I prepared breakfast and sat on the garden deck to lavish in my Mango feast.  By-the-way, after travelling the world I can say with 100% certainty Australia has THE BEST Mangoes on the entire planet !

With sweet juice running down my arms and a grin on my face ear-to-ear… an old memory popped into my mind unexpectedly.  Funny how that happens, how smell/taste/pure lusciousness can rekindle long lost memories.

I recalled a book that I read in 1997, on the eve of my 30th Birthday… ‘Succulent Wild Woman’ by SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy).

Oh I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book.  This book had been lovingly created by hand with drawings/paintings, colourful poems and wise wisdoms.   I no longer have my copy (sigh), it is lost somewhere in ‘book lending land’ (with hundreds of my other books over the years).. but the images on the pages still sit deeply embedded in my heart to this day.

One of the pages that were jumping out of my memory banks was SARKs depiction of a Succulent Wild Women eating a Mango naked under a tree or in a hammock, licking the juice as it dribbled down her arms.

Ok, I’ll be honest with you… I did have my bathers on (my children can relax now if they are reading this), and I wasn’t in a hammock… but none-the-less I was still getting lost in that feeling of bliss, of complete surrender to the sweet succulence of the moment and a deliciously bodacious appetite for being wild & free. 

Your own ‘Mango Moments’ & Chiron Return

Whilst ‘eating a Mango naked’ may not be to your taste, or something you identify with as being ‘wild & free’… it does conjure up a metaphorical message of being happy, comfortable & radiant in the juiciness that is you !

Over the last 12+ months I have been transiting through my Chiron Return – Chiron returning to the same position on my Natal Chart at my time/date of birth.  Chiron takes approx 50 years to transit your chart, so it returns to its original position at your time of birth somewhere between 49 to 51 years of age. 

Most of us only experience one Chiron Return in our lifetime… unless of course you live to be 100 !

Chiron represents the ‘Wounded Healer’, where we hold our deepest wounds, hurts, sorrow & shame in our lives – body, mind & spirit.  When Chiron returns to its original placement in your chart at birth, over a period of 1-2 years during its transit, we have an opportunity to revisit our wounds of the past.

Did you sweep your wounds of the past under the carpet ?  Did you soldier on and not really ever feel into and subsequently let go of your wounds?  Or did you mentally deal with your wounds – but never really process them with Whole-Heart?

Chiron Return is time to revisit your wounds, see them in a fresh new light.  To reflect on the story of your wounds, how you processed your story and what the story has brought to your life’s journey. 

If you never truly processed your wounds from the past, Chiron Return is your time to re-do / think / feel/ forgive a new… and begin a fresh cycle of joyously LOVING YOU.

You may also find that the wounds/scars never leave, but your emotional attachment to the hurts & pain take on a new experience.  Rather than being damned by the past, you may find that acceptance of the past or forgiveness (self & others) in the present moment means that the wounds no longer have any hold over you… but rather serve you in delightfully radiant ways.

Chiron Return can be an amazing right of passage when we create space in our lives to feel into our Hearts & surrender to the experience.  Chiron Return can be your ‘Mango Moment’ if you choose to experience it this way!  What do you choose ?

Our upcoming SUPER Moon, Blue Moon & our TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

Why am I sharing with you this ‘Mango-Moment-Chiron-Return’ story ?  As we come into our 31 January 2018 Full Moon, to me it feels like a mini-Chiron Return for each and everyone of us… no matter our age !

Our 31 January 2018 Full Moon is also our second and LAST Full Moon SUPERMOON for 2018, it is also a Blue Moon… AND we we also have a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE.

I LOVE the energy of our upcoming Full Moon, a power-FULL insight into our childhood wounds around nurturing, tenderness, presence & parenthood.   Combined with an insightful reflection of Women/Divine Feminine… and an opportunity to to step into a more loving, authentic, tender, strong & powerfully graceful state of presence in the world.

You can read all about the energy of our 31 January 2018 Full Moon here >

For me personally, as I count down the final 6 weeks of my Chiron Return and step into the next 50 years, I intend to let loose more. 

Forget about what others think of me.  No more hiding, playing it safe, staying small… if I really want to eat my Mangoes naked in the garden then I will!  I see myself being nourished from self-love and singing loudly the song of my Soul.  Look out world, Mango Season is here !

General Meaning – Full Moons 

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

During a FULL MOON, the Moon is fully illuminated as it sits in opposition to our Sun.  The energy (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified.  When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility.  The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.   Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

Full Moon Energy – January 31, 2018

Full Moon in LEO & Sun in AQUARIUS
(11.370 Leo – 11.370 Aquarius)

Wednesday, 31 January 2018 – 11:26 pm AEST (Australia)
View times in your City/Country>

Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Leo (Fire) – Leader, affectionate, generous, outgoing, stubborn, authoritative
Aquarius (Air) – Humanitarian, determined, individualistic, rebellious, independan

During the LEO Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in Aquarius.

LEO is a fire sign (and is ruled by the Sun) and when the Moon is in LEO we are guided to connect deeply into our Hearts and unearth our passions.   What creatively inspires you and brings you the greatest emotional fulfillment ? 

As this LEO Moon reflects the Sun in Aquarius, we are drawn to see how our gifts, our passions, our inner-light of creativity and our unique self-expression can make a difference in the lives of others.  How the uniqueness that is YOU makes a difference in the world!!!

There is no mistake that you came to planet Earth, and there is no mistake that you are on Earth to witness a huge shift in conscious… so don’t sit on the sidelines, be an active part of the birthing of a new Earth from your HEART !

When you choose to radiate the light that is within your Heart and follow the beat of your own Soul, you move into a place of least resistence.  From this place you step into FLOW… you begin so see your life as part of something greater than you and your relationships & work take on a greater depth of meaning.  Finances begin to step into harmonic flow, doors begin to open for you and opportunities abound for you to make the greatest impact in the world through the UNIQUENESS that is YOU !

Each and everyone of us are an integral golden strand in the web-of-life and our LEO Full Moon is offering us the opportunity to move deeply within, really OWN that fact and have the lion-hearted courage to live your life in alignment with a world more beautiful that each and everyone of us knows is possible.

Please click on the image right to enlarge & view all aspects.. then keep reading below for all the juicy details. I have included the ‘Galactic Evolutionary Triangle’ on the chart for students/graduates of Aetheric Healing™.

We have a number of other Celestial influences that are amplifying the energy of our 31 January 2018 Full Moon and these are all discussed further down the page:

  • This Full Moon is a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse
  • Ceres in Leo is conjunct the Moon in Leo
  • North Node in Leo is conjunct the Moon in Leo
  • Venus & Juno are in Aquarius (not far from the Sun)
  • Plus this Full Moon is a SUPERMOON
  • Plus this Full Moon is a BLUEMOON

Total Lunar Eclipse – a deep Emotional Insight…

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, thus the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow.

As the Moon is fully sitting in Earth’s shadow this Full Moon (ie unable to reflect the I AM Light of the Sun), a window opens and we are drawn into ourselves, the part that we don’t show to the world, the emotional and deepest part of our psyche.   The word ECLIPSE comes from the Greek word “ekleipsis” meaning “to abandon, to leave, to vanish” – and thats exactly what we may experience during a Lunar Eclipse – the desire to surrender and let go of parts of our self that limit our greater potential.

A Lunar Eclipse provides a quantum opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self. It is time to ECLIPSE anything that maybe holding you back.

Whilst the Moon is in Leo & the Sun in Aquarius for our Total Lunar Eclipse this Full Moon, in sidereal astrology (that takes account of the procession of the equinoxes), our January 31 Lunar Eclipse in actual fact takes place in Cancer Constellation.  Cancer relates to nurturing, family, the home, mothering & sensitivity/intuition AND the Cancer is the natural ruler of the Moon… making this Total Lunar Eclipse extra-ordinarily powerful.  

The energy of this Total Lunar Eclipse will take us back into memories of our childhood, the warms arms of a parent, our experience of nurturing or tenderness in our childhood years and the roles our parents played in our up-bringing.  We may find our selves looking deeply into our past, feeling how we felt in our youth… and then reflecting on our lives in the present.

What ‘roles, traditions, imprints’ of our past have we brought into our lives in the present moment.  Do these values & experiences of our childhood represent who we are in the present ?  This will be a deeply insightful Full Moon, lots of emotional insights… just try not to get too ‘Cancerian crabby’ !!!

PLUS… this Eclipse is being HUGELY influenced by the Lunar Nodes & Ceres taking us further down the rabbit hole into the roles of WOMEN in society (keep reading below).

‘Above all, our  Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is a gentle surrender to all those areas of your life where you are restrictive, hard on yourself, out of balance. Surrender to your inner-child today, see the mystical in everything & everyone. Flow. Fluid. Flourish. With deep sensitivity enjoy the delights of all the little things. Let a force of LOVE light up your life from the inside out.’

Cere’s birthing an Awakened vision of Womanhood…

After the strong stirring of the Divine Feminine on our 1 January 2018 SUPERMOON, our 31 January 2018 Full Moon takes us into a deeper plunge into the stories & roles of Women in society.

The Moon represents our inner-world, our emotions and represents societies traditional roles/expectations of Women & Motherhood… such as stay at home mums.

Whereas the minor planet Cere’s represents the modern Woman and varied roles such as ‘working mums’, ‘single parenthood’ (includes men), shared parenting/worklife etc..

As Cere’s in Leo is in a STRONG conjunction with Moon in Leo (all being influenced by Cancer)… expect the conversation around Womanhood, Womens Rights and an awakened vision of the modern day Woman to strongly influence our lives.

Interesingly, just 10 days out from the Eclipse we have the Womens March on the 21 January 2018.  Here are a few quotes from the Womens March Webpage that really explain to a ‘T’ the energy of our 31 January Full Moon under the influence of Cere’s & Cancer… all being fired up with the Moon in Leo.

Whilst these extracts specifically relate to Woman, I see them in the greater context of the Divine Feminine (hence relating to both Men, Women, LBGTQI+)…

  • Women’s Rights are Human Rights
  • Making a committment to dismantle oppression & create diverse inclusive structures
  • Women must be free to care for families free from social impediments
  • Women deserve to live their lives free of violence
  • Women deserve to make choices of themselves about their sexuality, relationships, family structures free from gender norms, expectations & stereotypes.

North Node in Leo firing up your independence…

The North Node in Leo conjunct the Moon in Leo is taking the energy of the Full Moon up to a radical new level of experience.

By way of background… the North Node of the Moon represents what we aspire to be, become, experience, grow from in this lifetime.  Whilst the South Node of the Moon represents what we have already mastered from the past (what is easy for us to fall back on), but what we must let go of in order to grow into the gifts of the North Node.

With the North Node in Leo this Full Moon (conjunct the Moon) and hence the South Node lies opposite in Aquarius (conjunct the Sun)… we will feel strong, confident, willing & empowered to step into ‘who do we WANT to be as a WOMAN’ in the world.  And when I say ‘WOMAN’ I an referring to the Divine Feminine Archetypal energy that exists in both Men & Women.  Leo is making us take the risk to be seen, be heard & be our authentic selves.

Conversely the South Node in Aquarius is helping us let go of the old story during this Eclipse of playing it safe, waiting for others to take action, not wanting to rock the boat, feeling scared of confrontation & running away from our hearts desires.

With the North Node in Leo until November 2018 (plus we have a Solar Eclipse in Leo in August 2018)… this is a BIG YEAR for Women / Divine Feminine to step into a more loving, authentic, tender, strong & powerfully graceful state of presence in the world.

A minor influence too this Full Moon is the closeness of both Venus & Juno to the Sun.   Venus represents the Divine Feminine & the minor planet Juno the fertility & also finances.  Expect more ‘outings’ of pay inequality in society and a bigger push to narrow the gender pay-gap.

SUPERMOON Energy…

So many SUPERMOONS of late !

This will be the 4th SuperMoon in a row – the first November 3/4, 2017, the second on December 3/4, 2017, the third on January 1/2, 2018 and now the fourth on January 31, 2018.

Interestingly, our January 31st Full Moon SuperMoon is the LAST Full Moon SuperMoon for 2018.    As our June, July & August SuperMoons will all fall on the New Moon.

Overall, energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or  have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened,  synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

Please read my Article on 2018 Super Moons & Micro Moons, to understand more about the energy/definition and the Super Moons & Micro Moons of 2018.

BLUE MOON Energy…

Our 31 January 2018 Full Moon is also a Blue Moon ie the second Full Moon to happen within a Calendar month.

The last Blue Moon (two Moons within a Calendar Month) occurred on the 31 July 2015.

Interestingly we have two Blue ‘Full’ Moons this year, one on the 31 January 2018 & another on 31 March 2018, with the next one not occuring until October 2020.

It is rare for two Blue Moons to happen in the one year.  The double Blue Moons only happen about 3 to 5 times every 100 years! 

The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  It is also a profound opportunity to let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.  Sooo… this month we have TWO opportunities to do just that… the first being on the January 1/2, 2018 SUPERMOON and now on our January 31, SUPERMOON Blue Moon.  Such a fabulistic start to 2018 !

Plus… as we have a Blue Moon in January 2018 AND the fact that February is a short month, there are NO Full Moons in the Month of February.  The next full Moon after our 31 January 2018 full Moon falls on the 2 March 2018.  When there is NO Full Moon in a Calendar Month this is referred to as a BLACK Moon.   I will talk more about this next month 🙂

Please read my Article on 2018 – Blue Moons & Black Moons, to understand more about the energy/definition of what makes a Blue Moon and a Black Moon.

Just a wee little note… if you live here in Australia in a AEDT timezone (ie NSW & VIC) or your live in New Zealand, the Full Moon falls after midnight, hence on the 1 February 2018…. sorry !

New Moon in Capricorn – January 16/17, 2018

The energy of our January 17, 2018 New Moon, under the influence of Venus, is calling us to focus on what fosters joy within our lives, what ignites our passions & what awakens a reverently tender sensuality with life and in all our relationships.

The Crystals in the image above are Gemmy Rhodochrosite, a most divine Crystalline Wisdom to support us in receiving the greatest joy from our 17 January 2018 New Moon:

  • Rhodochrosite Crystal Light Healing® Spirit Wisdom oozes LOVE, is a gentle & tender feeling crystal supporting you in opening your Heart to both receive/give love – LOVE in action.  Through your Sky-Star energy centre, Rhodochrosite gifts you a ‘vision’ of a greater potential of your life, a more beautiful life that emanates from your Heart.  The crystal radiates your Heart essence to attract your soul mate, heal relationship fractures, soothe a broken heart & be a beacon of LOVE in all that you do. 
  • Rhodochrosite Essence of Angels® Liquid Light Template ripples out the frequency of Archangels of Chamuel, Metatron & Sandalphon.  These sacred templates inspire you to step out of the limitation of the ego and align your Heart/Mind in service of something greater than you and simply BE Love in all that you do.

This New Moon is also a loving & tender respite of Feminine Essence as we come into our Full Moon on the 31 January 2018, which is also a Blue Moon, SuperMoon & Total Lunar Eclipse.

New Moons – General Meaning

The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see.  As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, our bodies, our emotions & our consciousness.  In addition, during a NEW MOON, both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun.  Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon.  During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.

The NEW MOON is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle.  Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

New Moon Energy – January 16/17, 2018

New Moon – Moon & Sun in CAPRICORN
(26.540 CAPRICORN)

Wednesday, 17 January 2018 – 12:17 pm AEST (Australia)
View times in your City/Country>

Moon – past, intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Capricorn (Earth) – Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker, cautious

Our November NEW MOON falls in the Zodiac sign of CAPRICORN.  The CAPRICORN New Moon is practical, hardworking and willing to put in the hard-yards to achieve goals.   Just love the strong will of Capricorn’s tenacious nature and ‘can do’ attitude !    Many of my close friends are Capricorn… and I just love them !!!!!

When the Moon & Sun were in Sagittarius last month on our 18 December New Moon, the energy was more visionary and bringing our conscious connection with our ideals of what we wish to be/become… connecting with the feeling.  This helped to anchor our feelings through the Galactic Alignment on the 18-22 December 2017… resonating the liquid crystal sound waves out into the Cosmos.

Now that our Sun has moved into Capricorn, it is about taking those visions and making them practical.. make a plan, set the goals, put your head down and do the work.. and make it real !

There are many stellar bodies also influencing our January New Moon… Venus is conjunct our Sun, and Pluto & Mercury and playing nearby in Capricorn too.

As I discussed in my article on Venus last year, Venus represents the Divine Feminine archetype, the embodiment of love, beauty, sensuality, passion & desire.  Venus is often experienced as the great attractor – both how we attract things into our lives and our attractions to things in our lives. By things I am referring to relationships, resources, possessions, & money.  

Venus under the influence of our Sun & Moon this New Moon is guiding us to focus our energies on what brings us joy, what makes our hearts sing.  What practically can you incorporate in your life to bring more pleasure ?  Maybe a weekly date night with your partner, give your lover a massage, light candles over dinner for romance or make time in your busy weekly schedule to play more!   Capricorn is asking you to be practical – get out the diary and make it happen, you deserve it, no excuses be it time, money, resources etc…  

Pluto is having a weak influence this New Moon calling for transformation & Mercury is whispering to you from the sidelines, encouraging you to schedule pleasure !

This New Moon is a loving & tender respite of Feminine Essence as we come into our Full Moon – Blue Moon – SuperMoon – Total Lunar Eclipse on the 31 January 2018.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s – 50th Anniversary

As I write this post today, it is the 50th Anniversary of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.  As we reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, his service to something greater than him and his extraordinary ability to realise change through the power of the Heart, the feelings that arise within you as you tap into the essence of this remarkably visionary man is what this New Moon is all about.

If we are to bring about change on this planet, heart based change that weaves a culture of kindness, compassion & reverence for all life for generations to come… then we must be that change from the inside-out & walk the talk.  Rather than using force, brutality attacking those that we feel are ‘wrong’ or creating factions through separation of opinion & shame… this New Moon is about fostering understanding, humbly walking in the shoes of another and being a ripple of change through our Hearts.  

What if today, as we head into the New Moon, rather than be angry & hurl abuse at governments, politicians, corporations, bosses, family members etc that don’t appear to have the best interest of you/your community/world in their sights… maybe take a different approach.  Maybe honour yourself enough to not denigrate others, but at the same time speak authentic truth from the Heart.  Speak of your Love, your greater vision, your ‘I have a dream…’ and inspire others with your message.  When you speak to peoples hearts magic happens… hearts open, visions unite and ripples of LOVE become LOVE tsunamis of change.

Today I am reflecting on words of wisdom from Dr King, that inspire me to do what I do…

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”  (Photo taken by my family at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in DC in 2015).

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular, but he must take it because conscious (Heart Resonance) tells him it is right.”

“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

Full Moon SUPERMOON – January 1/2, 2018

Our first FULL MOON of 2018 is a SUPERMOON on the 1/2 January.  This is the third SUPERMOON in a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS – the first & second having taking place in November & December 2017.

Update:  Today I penned a LOVE Letter for 2018.  Our Full MOON SuperMOON reaches its full bloom in the next couple of hours… so on her expansion I opened my heart wide open to 2018.  Click right to enlarge

On the back of last months Galactic Alignment and amplified through our 2018 Universal 11 Year energy... plus being even further amplified by our 1 January 2018 11:11 gateway (more about that below)… this is a joyous & exhilarating Full Moon to kick off 2018 !

We also have a BLUE MOON Full Moon at the end of January combined with our first Lunar Eclipse of the year… and I will be sharing more about this in a future post later in January 🙂

Please also refer to our CELESTIAL Events for 2018 – Lunar, Solar & Astro Table for an overview of all transits for the entire year of 2018.

General Meaning – Full Moons 

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

During a FULL MOON, the Moon is fully illuminated as it sits in opposition to our Sun.  The energy (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified.  When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility.  The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.   Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

Full Moon in CANCER & Sun in CAPRICORN
(11.380 Cancer – 11.380 Capricorn)

Tuesday, 2 January 2018 – 1:46 pm AEST (Australia)
View times in your City/Country>

Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Cancer (water) – nurturing, family, sensitive, emotional, moody, psychic
Capricorn (Earth) – Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker, cautious

During the CANCER Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the Sun in CAPRICORN. 

As the forces of the Sun & Moon oppose each other (Ego vs Emotions, I vs We) … our FULL MOON will have a super-charged effect as it is the third of trilogy of Supermoons over the months of November, December & now finally January 2018.

Our first FULL MOON of 2018 is quite significant as it involves many aspects all contributing to the theme of 2018. 

Please click on the image right to enlarge & view all aspects.. then keep reading below for all the juicy details.

The impact of 11:11 this Full Moon…

As I discussed in my Numerology of 2018 post, this year we enter a Universal 11 Year in Numerology – a Master Number – a year of of aetherial, magical & transcendental learning & growth.

PLUS on the 1 January 2018… an 11:11 Gateway opens to us (1st day, of the 1st Month of an 11 Year) – a wakeup key embedded within our DNA reminding us that the Light of Creation resides within.

PLUS on our FULL Moon SUPERMOON the Moon is positioned at 11038 (11:11) Cancer and the SUN is positioned at 11038 (11:11) Capricorn.  WOW of WOW… YES the energy of 11 is certainly the theme of 2018 and it becomes amplified to the MAX over our first FULL MOON of the year.

Emotions running high this Full Moon…

The FULL MOON in watery CANCER will mean that emotions will be running very high this FULL MOON… but if channeled wisely, will be a brilliant opportunity to gain deep intuitive insight into your own personal themes for 2018.   What do you envision / feel / imagine for yourself this 2018 and what must you let go of in order to birth this awakened vision of you ?  Let the Sun in the practical sign of CAPRICORN bring to light what is felt deep within your Heart-n-Soul.

When the Moon is in Cancer, the focus is on your family and home environment.  You may feel a sudden urge to de-clutter, finish those odd-jobs & make your abode more homely.  The focus on family & relationships will also be heightened with the Moon close to the asteroid VESTA.  Your heart will be guided to nurture and provide a homely sanctuary for your loved ones… or maybe spicing up the bedroom & spending time with your lover.  There will be a calling to nest down and find solace in the comfort and security of your home.

A great Full Moon for channelling…

On a side note too, MERCURY the planet of Communication, moved direct from its Retrograde transit on the 23/24 December 2017 just after its playful time with the GALACTIC CENTRE Alignment. Thus leading into this FULL MOON SUPERMOON third & final trilogy, we are receiving ‘channeled’ insight into a more beautiful world… and now its up to us to take our insights and put them into conscious action. 

Awakening the Divine Feminine this Full Moon…

On an interesting note, MAKEMAKE (a dwarf planet) at 40Libra is conjunct the SuperGalactic Centre (SGC) at 20Libra.  MakeMake compels us to delve down into the dark interior of the psyche in order to obtain a more passive and feminist form of received wisdom to be merged with the warrior male outer-oriented energy of the ego.  And the Super Galactic Centre represents the greater potential of our Higher Collective Consciousness – the Collective Evolutionary Purpose of our Galaxy. WOW… what a combination to conjunct and amplify each other!!! 

But wait there is more… this MakeMake/SGC conjunction is also in a weak square with the MOON in opposition with VENUS (Venus the Goddess / Divine Feminine) and also in a week conjunction with SIRIUS (the archetypal Divine Masculine).  Venus can be serious in LOVE when in Capricorn and when in opposition to the Moon in Cancer, we are guided to look at ALL of our relationships and to ‘see’ if we are fulfilled or are needs are being met… and the different expectations that exists between partners.

I feel strongly that this SUPER FULL MOON will prize the lid open further on high-profile cases of sexual misconduct. Leading into this FULL MOON we are already seeing celebrities being ‘called out‘ for diminishing mysoginistic behaviour by rating it on a scale… for what we are reminded of this FULL MOON is that EVERY action, word or deed that diminishes a women will NOT EVER be tolerated.  

Full Moon SUPERMOON Energy…

As mentioned above, our January 1/2, 2018 FULL MOON marks the third SUPERMOON in a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS.  

The first SUPERMOON occurred on November 3/4, 2017, the second on December 3/4, 2017 and the third now takes place on January 1/2, 2018.

Overall, energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or  have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened,  synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

During this 3rd SUPERMOON we are anchoring the energy that opened to us during the energetic window GALACTIC ALIGNMENT on the 18 to 22 December 2017.

We start 2018 on this FULL MOON SUPERMOON inspired to embrace our greater Evolutionary Purpose and to step into the grandest version of the greatest vision that we have ever held for ourselves.  ♡
