New Moon (Super Moon) – June 23/24, 2017

Our June 23/24, 2017 Cancer New Moon, falling after our Summer/Winter Solstice on June 20/21, heralds a welcome relief of a little nurturing, some tender ‘mothering’ and a gentle soft respite into ourselves.

Sharing with you below the energy of our June 2017 Solstice & Cancer New Moon – a SUPER MOON !

SOLTICE: June 20/21, 2017

June_Solstice_lrAs the Sun enters Cancer toward the end of June we have the Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) and Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere).  This years June Solstice falls on the 20/21 June 2017.

Due to the tilt in our Earth’s axis of rotation, throughout the calendar year the Sun appears to rise and fall in different regions of the Sky. This is not of course due to the Sun moving, but due to the Earth moving relative to the Sun.

Where ever you are on Earth, the Summer/Winter Solstice represents an opportunity to celebrate your LIGHT.  As we move into the threshold of a new cycle, it is a time to come together with all humanity through the LOVE of our LIGHT and send a wave of unifying peace through the Crystalline Wisdom Field of our Earth.

The June Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is called the ‘Summer Solstice‘ – this marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (daylight hours). As we commenced our journey from the last Winter Solstice we have been energised from Sun in our Heart through to the Divine Heart of all creation. We now reach the peak of growth – and it is a time of celebration for all. As the days post Summer Solstice become shorter, it is a time of inner reflection/review as we move toward the next cycle.

The June Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is called the ‘Winter Solstice’ – this marks the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere (daylight hours). It is a time of inner reflection, turning to the Sun within, our solar selves. It is a time to gain strength from within, and get ready to embark on the new journey as our days of daylight get longer beyond the Winter Solstice and we are being energised from within.

To embrace the energy of the June Solstice, consider lighting a candle and honouring the LIGHT of joy, blissful abundance, compassion, peace and kindness illuminating your Heart and entraining the field of the Infinite All.  OmAhOm.

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, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour / 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.

Our June NEW MOON falls in the Zodiac sign of CANCER.   Cancer is a Water sign and is ruled by the Moon… thus our Cancer New Moon heralds a welcome relief of a little nurturing, some tender ‘mothering’ and a gentle soft respite into ourselves.

This Cancer new moon is a time to feel deeply into yourself and give love to every nuance, action, thought and feeling.  Simply rejoice in yourself, and acknowledge yourself as already whole and perfect… you are simply LOVE!

Cancer is the sign of the Sacred Feminine, the creative Mother energy and the nurturer.  This new moon offers an energy to peer within and view our relationship to our ‘Mother’ within, our sacred intuitive natures (whether we are male or female).

What can your ‘Inner-Mother’ teach you at this time… and allow that wisdom to be imparted from a place of unconditional love of self.

During the ‘Divine Feminine’ Cancer New Moon we transcend the egoic need of power struggles, destruction of life and pain and suffering.   It represents a return of the feminine, in order to balance the male and female polarity in humanity and foster oneness.  Oneness in our hearts and minds, oneness in our physical and spiritual selves, and oneness of our selves with all creation.

During this Cancer New Moon each of us holds the potential to ‘Dream the Dream’ of the Goddess, and create harmony and loving union of the Masculine and Feminine breath of LOVE.

This Cancer new moon energy represents a time to honour your needs… in order to fill your cup full and over-flowing to be of service to others.   This new moon represents a wonderful time to also nurture your home life.. maybe spend time gardening, cleaning up clutter, organise a family gathering or make a scrummy meal for loved ones.

In addition, our New Moon is also being influenced by the dance of Venus.  Venus represents the Divine Feminine archetype, the embodiment of love, beauty, sensuality, passion & desire.  As an archetype I am referring to both Men & Women and how we emotionally, & psychologically integrate, manifest and express the Divine Feminine within our daily lives.  

Our Cancer New Moon is also a SUPER MOON – see further details below.

New Moon: Super Moon

Our June 2017 New Moon is also a Super Moon !

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 !

Energy Predictions for 2007

As we enter into 2007, we are entering globally into a 9 year. Nine years are all about compassion, humanitarianism, returning to nature and winding down from the frenetic pace of the last 8 years.

What this means for our planet, is the opportunity to bring much peace, love and understanding for each other and how we treat our beloved Gaia. Of course how to work with the planets 9 vibration energies, depends on where we are in our own personal years – but where we all are is perfect and as a united team we stand to make major in roads into creating a Heaven here on Earth.

My suggestion for everyone this year is to use the Planetary 9 energies for giving back to Gaia. Many of us experienced much hardship in 2006 as we made major shifts in our lives and diligently worked at growing and reconnecting once again with spirit. Lets make 2007 a year of Gratitude. Enjoying the journey more, slowing down, smelling the roses and being proud of our achievements and where we have come. This does not mean it is a year off from growing, but rather we all have reached the point of understanding that doing more does not create more. It is time to put our words into action and experience on every level just BEING.

BEING means living in the moment, living each minute to the fullest, living without regret and living in the now (not in the future). As we work with the energies in each loving moment, we tap into that blissful state within, and radiate our magnificence to all.

To understand what a 9 year means to us all and to clarify the above description, I did a small card reading from a deck to Angel cards. The 3 cards pulled were Optimism, Marriage, Miracles.

Optimism means setting our goals, and having faith, belief and inner knowing of these becoming manifest. Remember we create our own realities and like attracts like, so believe in your dreams and your positive attitude will inspire others to do the same. Interestingly we start the year with 6 planets in Sagittarius and Sagittarius is all about passion and optimism. Jupiter is sitting in Sagittarius for the next year, further enhancing the energies of optimism and hope.

Marriage means the union of our relationships including aspects of ourselves. As the energies from the first full moon on the 3rd January (within a 1 vibration month) set a tone for 2007…it is time to unify, bring together or heal aspects of relationships that are in need of love. Not only is it important to BE yourself, but it is also important to allow others to do the same. A 9 year is usually a time in relationships to scrutinize all your ideals and values, determine what is it that you really want, resolve any problems/conflicts and move forward fully embracing your relationships in oneness and with integrity. Imagine us all coming together, honouring ourselves and just Being.

Miracles means that we are all loved, as we all emanate from the one source. Thus according to Universal Law, as we are all one, we all have within us the power to create miracles. As we work with Optimism (faith) and Marriage (unification) we create infinite levels of possibilities. Lets work together in 2007, bringing peace, joy, love and Being into the lives of us all.

Put another way, when we work with Optimism, Marriage & Miracles in 2007, we are working with OMM the primordial sound, the cosmic hum to which we all resonate.

Thus using the resonations of a 9 year, and combined with the energy in January of 1 (1+2+0+0+7=1), in combination with a powerful planetary line up, we have a powerful combination of energies at our command to transform major shifts within our selves and our planet.

We have worked hard over this last cycle and set the ground work for Being in a blissful state of Being. In saying that, 2007 is a 9 vibration (and we have entered into the 5th Day of the Mayan Calendar – see Dec 2006 Message) so expect to be tested along the way regarding the choices you have made. You have the choice to come from a place of integrity, self worth and Love for human kind. So act with integrity and choose wisely.

11:11 Doorway

The phenomenon has been growing for years, and is the wake up call for Lightworkers being called to action. So what is this world wide occurrence you ask, it is 11:11 of course.

Have you ever noticed 11:11 all around you. On digital clocks, stereos, microwaves, DVD’s, posters, in nature etc. it is everywhere. If you have been seeing these numbers consistently in your life, you are probably also seeing other double or triple numbers too (eg 22, or 222, 44 or 444 etc). By now I am sure you have observed that these numbers are more than mere coincidences.

In numerology the number 11 is a master number. It is the most intuitive number and is a clear channel to the subconscious. It is the number of leadership, personal power and spiritual truths. ‘Jesus’ in numerology breaks down to the number 11, and ‘Angels’ (plural) is the number 22 (11 + 11).

So why are we all being awakened with 11:11. This number is a genetic code implanted in our Crystalline Matrix (energetic bodies) prior to our descent to Earth. When we came to Earth our memories were erased in order for our souls to experience separation in the Grand Cycle, and then through free will we are given the opportunity for growth and ascension. We did however ensure we planted some sign posts along the way to help us to wake up and 11:11 is one of them.

The 11:11 is the symbol reminding us of the illusion we live in. It is the memory code implanted in us to help us to wake up, release our fears and bring humanity together as one again. It is the symbol waking up Lightworkers all over the world, no matter what religion, race or colour as we are all one. It is the doorway through which we ascend in 2012, as we vibrate at multi-dimensional frequencies.

In my family the number 11 features quite prominently. The birth numbers (add together the day, month and year of birth) of my two brothers, my husband and my son & daughter are all 11. In addition, my daughters full name is an 11 number, so she is an 11:11 in its purest form. I myself have 11 on my car number plate, and when you add it to my initials on my number plate it becomes 11:11 (my little contribution to helping people wake up in my home town).

As you become aware of 11:11 this phenomenon grows to all master numbers. For instance last yearI was attending an Angel Seminar all weekend here on the Sunshine Coast. As I drove home on the last day, I was ever so grateful for all my experiences that weekend. Tears were rolling down my face as I was thanking my Angels for being in my life and loving me unconditionally. Trying to compose my self after a great release, I wiped away my last tears to find my gaze upon the car in front of me. It was a white maintenance van and the phone number of the company ended with ‘444’. This is the master number of the angels. They were sending me a message that they are always just a call away, and all I had to do was ‘ring them’. This is the power of master numbers.

So now you may ask, what do I do now that I am seeing 11 or other master numbers consistently in my life? The best thing you can offer the world is ‘self responsibility’. That is acknowledging your self as an integral part of the whole and hence working toward your highest level of vibration.

That means acknowledging who you are and consistently aiming at reaching the highest level of vibration of your life purpose for the benefit of yourself and all humanity. In other words, just being LOVE in everything you do. As we are all one, when we resonate to our highest potential, so does all of humanity…the mass consciousness.

What’s Up With 2012?

Have you been experiencing headaches, loss of vision, extreme tiredness and feeling like time is speeding up? Well you are not alone. As we come to the end of our 26,000 year cycle, we are in a transition phase as we shift into a new age. This phase is referred to as ‘The Shift of the Ages’.

Our solar system circles around the Central Sun called Alcyone, located in the constellation of pleiades. This clockwise cyclic procession takes approx 26,000 years to make one complete orbit. During the 26,000 year cycle we spend time in every house in the zodiac, staying in each one for just over 2,000 years – these are referred to as the ‘Ages’. We are in the process of moving out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius. The Age of Aquarius is referred to as the Golden Age, for as we move into Aquarius we are also moving into the Photon Belt.

What is the Photon Belt?

The Photon Belt is a band of intense photon light. A photon is a quantum of light, or the smallest possible packet of light at a given wavelength. It is emitted by an atom during a transition from one energy state to another. The Photon Belt transverses through the middle of the Constellation of Pleiades, hence through the Central Sun Alcyone. Note: it actually transverses through the entire cosmos, but lets not confuse matters here.

During our 26,000 year cycle around Alcyone, we pass through the Photon Belt twice, each time taking 2,000 years to travel through the belt. As we move into the Age of Aquarius, the Golden Age, we are within the Photon Belt. We are at peace. There is only light and love, no wars or separation. We are fully within the Photon Belt within 2012.

What makes this current move into the Photon Belt so unique, is that for the first time on Earth we are bringing forth 5th dimensional energies and containing them within our physical bodies. The ancient civilisations were well aware of our 26,000 year cycle. The Mayan calendar for-instance actually ends in 2012. Many have prophesised the end of the calendar to represent great cataclysm on Earth, and the end of the world. When in actual fact it represents a change in our consciousness, a new frequency for planet Earth moving beyond the parameters of time, space and duality.

The 25 year span leading up to 2012, is referred to as the transition period, and it is during this period that we may experience physical discomforts as we prepare for our entrance into a new consciousness. Everything seems intensified during this period, emotions run high, many people experience periods of darkness, relationships are challenged and our physical functioning is being altered as we prepare and adjust to the new energies.

So how can you prepare for 2012 and the entrance into a 5th Dimensional existence? My advice is to slow down and begin to ‘feel’ again as spirit will provide us all with the answers. All too often we get caught up in such a physical existence of ‘hurriedness’ and ‘no-time’ that we have forgotten how to trust and allow. If we refuse to listen to spirit it is a kin to swimming up stream – life just gets harder and harder.

Meditation aids our conscious reconnection to source, and provides a clear channel for all our senses. Using crystals also helps to raise our vibrations, re-weaving our own crystalline matrixes with Earth energies thus decreasing our physical symptoms. Seeking the help of healers can sometimes be necessary to help us make shifts or facilitate change. Reiki, crystals, vibrational essences, DNA Light Code Activations etc may all be of help. Ask Spirit to guide you to someone for help with your healing.

Cherish this time in our history as we make a great leap from fear to love. If we align our hearts and welcome the changes, the transition will be a smooth and loving one. As we enter the 5th Dimension we will experience peace and love. How beautiful our existence will be when we move beyond the illusion of fear and duality and find peace within our selves as we are all one.
