CANCER – ‘I feel’
     Artist: Josephine Wall
Cancerians are water signs who love their home. Tough on the outside but soft on the inside, they feel deeply.  Cancer represents feelings, nurturing, home, defense, patriotism, conservation, family, sensitivity, moodiness (when they are lovely they are lovely, when they are horrid they can be truly horrible!), introversion (when they feel attacked or upset they retreat into their shell and stay there until they are ready to come out), mothering, caring for others (many are healers/therapists), catering, property and home interiors. They love hobbies involving fantasy and imagination, as they are highly creative and very individual.  Cancerians are Moon Children (usually very psychic) and love to live near the sea, they are very sensitive to Moon cycles and tides especially Full Moon high tides.  They are fantastic company, usually very intelligent, they make great parents and are fun friends to have around.  They need freedom to express who they are and they like to do things their way.




CURRENT ENERGIES


Many folks are feeling tired as we transition into the New Year energies.  We are approaching Chinese New Year when the energies change from Monkey to Rooster.  However, that trickster Monkey is not going without throwing a few final curveballs our way.  Ride whatever happens, things are going to change in a few weeks, and once the energies settle you will feel more settled.

Full Moon dreaming has been interesting.  Make a note of your dreams as there could be pointers for you regarding your year ahead.  Also, a lot of clearing has been going on in dreamtime, so if you’ve been having a few weird dreams, don’t worry it’s just your psyche having its own spring clean.




Now is a good time to have a clear out and a spring clean.  You are thinking about your new year ahead and what you want out of it.  Good things need space to come in, so it’s out with the old as we create a clean, lovely space for the new to come to us.

This year you might find that you are ready for change; perhaps the house has been looking tired and needs a freshen-up or change of colour?  Perhaps you are ready to change your personal image and how you present yourself to the world (and that includes your personal & professional work/crafts/creativity/own businesses), is it time to update your Logo?  (Chloe Williams of Moo Designs is so lovely to deal with, www.MooEventsandDesigns@Outlook.com).

This year could be very busy for many of us, so the more organized and prepared we are, the better we will cope.  In the meantime, with all the differing temperatures, bugs going around and this time of year, do keep your immune system boosted.  Introduce more herbs to your regime, eat well and regularly, drink plenty of water – central heating and cold weather are all dehydrating. 

This year is all about TLC for yourself!


Other Astrology

Mercury is stationary so communication issues and computer snags should start settling.  Give it another week before signing a contract though.



Also there is a Grand Cross in the sky, this can cause tension and stress (especially if you are Aries, Cancer, Capricorn or Libra). This is not the best time to make major decisions or commitments.  You may find people are pulling on you – don’t allow this – take your time regarding decisions etc. 
(And if you need some support you may find our ‘Fireweed’ Essence helpful, it is perfect when you are tired from being pulled this way and that by others.  You can find it here: http://www.theapothecarygarden.org/ESSENCES.html   



FULL MOON in CANCER
The Full Moons are known by many names by many nations, and this Full Moon is no exception, it is known as Wolf Moon and also Birch Moon.

And now we welcome the first Full Moon of the year, which is in the sensitive sign of Cancer.  All water signs may be feeling a bit emotional and weepy around this transit. (I never usually watch Coronation Street, but I happened to watch it last night and blubbed my way through it!).

Attune to the home-loving, nurturing energies of Cancer and allow yourself some TLC over the next few days. Link into water energy (Cancer is a water sign) and have some healthy water-based drinks  - add some fruit slices, and/or fresh mint to water and enjoy.  Have some nice bubble baths or try an Epsom Salts bath, to cleanse away the old energies and restore you. Eat nourishing foods with one or two treats.  Listen to some soothing, balancing music.  Do a few OMs and rebalance your chakras through the power of your own sound.



This Full Moon could be the push you needed to finally make those changes you have been thinking about.  There is a feeling of clearing the slate, of looking at a blank new page, fresh with possibility yet not needing to put anything on it yet.  There are things to be done first before you can start writing the script for your year ahead.  Don’t procrastinate, do what needs doing, and make those changes, as this will free up a tremendous amount of energy for you.  You are strong enough to do whatever it is that you need to do. You have been though so much over the past year, now it’s time to look forward and take practical steps towards what your heart truly desires. 
Don’t take on too much.  Think about yourself before you answer Yes to anything - does it feel right?  Does it fit in with the plans you are formulating for yourself? If it doesn’t don’t do it.

As a dear friend recently reminded me, ‘change can be wearying’ and she is so right.  Even if they are changes that we are happy about and that we want, they will still use up energy which is why TLC for yourself is so important at this time of year.

I have written before in past Blogs about why this is the most dangerous time of year to diet or detox. Focus on nurturing, wellness and positivity instead and eat well!  There is a wonderful year ahead for you, so go get organised for it!


Message from the Full Moon:
Clear out the old
Clean everywhere
Prepare for the new
Prepare you
Nurture yourself as you do
Think about what you want
Take steps towards that






Full Moon Blessings to y’all!

NEW YEAR - NEW MOON Blessings! 2016/2017

NEW MOON in CAPRICORN
Artist: Tamara Phillips
LETTING GO - PLANNING - REBIRTHING

We have a New Moon in Sagittarius:

UK                 29 December 06.53am
EU       -           29 December 07.53am
USA     -           29 December 01.53am
AUS     -           29 December 17.53pm
NZ        -           29 December 07:53a-m


CAPRICORN – I USE / I DECIDE
          Artist: Josephine Wall
Lovely, practical, earthy Capricorn is usually blessed with a great sense of humour as well.  Capricorn represents ambition, government, authority, tradition, pragmatism, conservatism (although some Caps I’ve known have been downright out there wacky!), endurance, business management, integrity, economics, and practical expertise.  Capricorns work well where their intellect and analytical qualities can be used, which is why they are so good at business in areas some would find stuffy and boring, they thrive in these environments. They also make great engineers and inventors and can be very creative.  They can be as stubborn as hell and their own worst enemies at times, which is why they needs friends who can soothe their ruffled fur. High in integrity, they are loyal, supportive friends and defender of the underdog.


CURRENT ENERGIES

Dreamtime has been very active with some strange dreams lately, or is that to do with eating so many different types of food at this time of year - lol?

Everyone seems exhausted, it’s been a long tough year for many and for some a struggle to make Christmas happen.  Now that’s over for another year and we look towards a New Year cycle.  We welcome the new energies coming in and the Winter moons, which give us time to reflect and think about the type of year we want to create for ourselves.


ASTROLOGY
Mercury is still retrograde, wait until the end of January before making any big decisions or signing important contracts.  In the meantime fix what’s broken, get the car checked, back up the computer and get ready for an organized new year.  Capricorn will help us to be committed and to stay on track.  However to stay in balance with all that left-brain practical stuff, we need to be kind to ourselves and others and build-in time to be creative.


NEW MOON in CAPRICORN

This New Year New Moon is in practical Capricorn, which is just what we need as we plan our year ahead. Capricorn is all about step-by-step progress, so start writing your plans/lists now and the steps you will take to achieve what you want this coming year. 

Globally we will continue to promote peace, and that starts with us - within us.  Leave the stresses of 2016 behind and stand strong in your light and be a beacon for others in 2017.

We will need to pay attention to detail in 2017, and not be swept along by illusions (as one astrologer said “princes revert to frogs” in 2017). 

Use the New Year New Moon to let go of all the ‘bad’ stuff that happened in 2016 – the losses, the sadness’s, the regrets, the guilt, etc so that you do not carry these emotions into your New Year.  You can do this in several ways:

CANDLE CLEARING
You will need a brand new white candle.
Find a quiet space where you cannot be interrupted.
Light the candle and dedicate the Light to clearing and cleansing.
Speak aloud to the candle and let out all that you wish to let go of. (See/feel your words and their vibration going into the flame).
When you have finished, carefully wave your hands over the candle to cleanse them. (Don’t burn yourself).
Then repeat but gather the light of the candle into your cupped hands and draw this gathered light over your head and down through your aura.  This will cleanse your aura.  Repeat until you feel you have covered your whole aura.
Then give thanks and send the light out to where it is needed just before you blow it out.
As the smoke from the extinguished candle rises upwards, use your fingers to help spiral it upward and say “Great Spirit hear my prayer.”

LETTER BURNING
Get some sheets of A4 paper, and write out all the hurts, angers and losses that you want to let go of.  Write constantly without re-reading it, until you feel you have completely emptied yourself.
Once you have finished, twist the pages and then go outside and find a safe space to set fire to them, burn every word until it is ash.  This dispels forever any remaining karma.


In 2017 we will continue to live with chaotic energies worldwide, and in a strange way we are getting used to that, as we know that when living in a tipping point things will carry on like this until balance is restored.

2017 gives us an opportunity to rebirth ourselves

to rise anew from the heaviness of 2016 and to move forward in light.  It’s not easy to be loving all the time especially when cr*p is going on, however we must remind ourselves that love is the key to getting through. 

We must never let our vibration drop (or our standards), because we know that we are better than that, we know that we can access a higher power that can fill us with light and flood us with love.

There are many different types of New Year at different times of the year for different traditions.  The New Year is symbolic more than actual.  It’s up to us what we do to make and shape our next 12 months.  Ask yourself some questions:

- Looking back on 2016, what will I do differently in 2017?
- Where/how did I neglect myself in 2016?
- Where/how did I neglect others in 2016?
- Did I achieve my goals in 2016?
- What did I learn in 2016 (about myself, my life, the others in my life)?
- How have I changed/my beliefs changed?
- What do I know for certain?
- How will I make 2017 different?

You may find that after decades of wearing the same perfume you fancy a change, that foods etc that you’ve liked for years, you are no longer interested in.  There are massive changes going on for all of us, both inner and outer and they will affect all the minutiae of our lives too.  This is part of your rebirth, this is part of the changed you who is now taking his/her rightful place in the world and in their own life. 

Stay close to those that support and love you, those that believe in you and don’t waste your time on those that don’t.  You have come through far too much in 2016 to waste your precious energy or time on anything or anyone that drags you down.  You don’t have to do this anymore. 

This year is all about you and what you want.  You are stronger now; you have a deep centred knowing of what you want and how you want your next year to pan out.  Stay grounded, keep your feet firmly planted and reach for the stars. Because you can.




Make time for meditation in 2017, our energies will need to be renewed from the cosmos and this is the best way to do it.  Of course there will be challenges, so meditate to cope, meditate to stay healthy, meditate to remain strong in your centre and personal power.

Take yourself off the hook.  The past is over.  Last year is over.  Have you forgotten how fabulous you are?  Hold your head high, put those shoulders back and strut your fabulousness throughout 2017.  Every morning when you wake up tell yourself “I am fabulous! I am capable. I am loving. I can do anything! I am AMAZING!” Make this your mantra for 2017 and see yourself and your life blossom.







New Year and New Moon Blessings to y’all.

FULL MOON Supermoon BLESSINGS! December 2016

FULL MOON Supermoon in GEMINI
Artists: Linda & Roger Garland
Illusion – Revelation – Light

We have a Full Moon in Gemini:
UK       –          14 December 12.06am
EU       -           14 November 13.06am
USA     -           13 December 19.06pm
AUS     -           14 December 11.06am
NZ       -           14 December 13.06pm


GEMINI – ‘I think’
The thinker of the zodiac.  The curiosity cat of the zodiac. The sign of the Twins.  The occasional Jekyll & Hyde aspects of their personality - one minute they are laughing and joking, the next they are throwing saucepans with a face like thunder!  They can be as fickle as hell and drive you nuts with their mood swings.  As an Air sign, they work on the mental level; they are witty, highly intelligent and brilliant networkers.  Gemini’s make things happen, they never sit around waiting for them to happen.  They need constant stimulation especially intellectually and get bored easily.  They are delightful flirts at times. They make great teachers, parents, storytellers/poets and inventors.  They love travelling and make good speakers. Sociable as well as academic they are interesting friends to have around.  You always learn something from a Gemini!



CURRENT ENERGIES
 

Everyone is feeling very tired as we approach the year’s end. This year has been tough for many - very trying, many setbacks and delays etc.  However, the good news is that the energies are starting to shift, and for the better.  These heavier energies will start to fade and next year’s energies will be better.  Hang on in there, not long to go.  You will not look back once next year's energies kick in.

Next year is all about not wasting time on anything or anyone that doesn’t match our vibration.  It’s about not allowing our personal power to be depleted by anyone or anything.  This year has made us stronger, even though we might not feel like it right now.  It has.  Next year it is time for those who haven’t done the work to grow up. We are not holding their hands anymore; we simply don’t have the time or energy.  (And that goes for politicians and anything/anyone else that stands in the way of truth especially our truth).  As Maggie Thatcher once said “the lady is not for turning”.  None of us will be next year, we will be standing firm in our truth.

Our Warrior/ess selves will be coming to the fore stronger than before.  However, this is the Way of the Peaceful Warrior/ess and we will be using our skills, talents and power for peace and our modus operandi will be love. 

In the meantime, make the most of the festive season, celebrate the return of the light at Solstice and fill yourself and your homes with light and sparkle.  For it is the Light that leads the way.

As usual as we head towards Solstice, the energies are intensifying and more Souls leave the Earthplane.  Stop and breathe, this is only temporary.  Be kind to yourself and others as we are all in this together.



ASTROLOGY
 

Mercury retrograde is upon us for the final time this year.
19th December 2016 – 8th January 2017 (although the effects start two weeks before and last two weeks after these dates).

You know what to do.

It might be challenging at this time of year with so many folks travelling for the holidays, so double and triple check your bookings and arrangements and be patient with the inevitable snafus that may spring up.  Also this time around, you might sense an undercurrent with something or someone, trust your gut, and don’t agree or commit to anything or anyone unless your gut feels right about it.




FULL MOON Supermoon in GEMINI

Have you found it hard to concentrate the past few days?  Have you been a bit spacey and/or dreamy?  It’s the Full Moon.  It’s also the third Supermoon in a row so once more we are riding the waves of powerful energies.

This Full Moon could make you feel vulnerable and unsteady, and things might feel a bit unstable for a few days.  This will pass and is simply the influence of this rather powerful, Full Moon Supermoon transit.

The Gemini influence leads me to caution you against committing to anyone or anything during the Full Moon phase, as the energies are too unstable. 
With Gemini being the Twins, the bright light of this Full Moon could reveal those who are being two-faced, and you may not have realised this before. 
Pay heed as there is trickster/shyster energy about (and especially when purchasing anything, if it seems like it’s too good to be true it probably is).  Trust your gut and your intuition to see through the outer presentation to the true motives underneath.

The energies will be very up and down with Gemini’s mercurial influence.  So try and go with the flow.

Avoid gossip during this moon phase as it will come back to bite you on the bum.  What messages are you giving out about yourself and others at the moment?  Because of Mercury retrograde, be aware that others may not ‘hear’ what you are trying to say and may take offense.  So think before you speak.  And don’t believe everything you hear over the next few days, trust your gut and inner bullsh*t detector, as there could be a lot of it around.

Also, you might find it hard to make decisions, so wait if you can until the Full Moon is on the wane. 

Dreamtime has been very active and will continue to be during this moon phase.  Make a note of your dreams at this time; even if you only remember snippets, as there are a lot of revelations through prophetic and psychic messages, being given to us through Grandmother Moon’s beautiful lunar downloads this week.

The energies may make you feel like doing something drastic or outrageous – especially as regards your appearance.  Just be aware that you will have to live with this for quite a while once this crazy Full Moon has passed!

It’s really important to stay grounded during this Full Moon Supermoon.  Gemini is an Air sign and we could all drift around being La La Bunnies if we are not careful.  Go for a long walk, do some housework and/or gardening, dance vigorously, whatever it takes to keep you grounded in your body.  That way you avoid accidents too.

The more grounded you are, the more you will be able to receive the downloads coming your way (insights, new ideas and innovations etc).

As I mentioned before, focus on the season and what is good and what lifts your energies and spirits.  Focus on the Light and all will be well. 


We are approaching Yule and I love this time of year.  On Solstice Day I cut the Holly and Ivy from our garden to bring into our home, and find some mistletoe.  I make Solstice Brew and other seasonal treats so that we can salute the Solstice and the joy of the Light being returned to us.

Have a good one y’all!


SOLSTICE BREW
 
2 Tbsp. Juniper berries
750ml Vodka
2 Star anise
2 Tbsp. coriander seeds

Full Moon YULE message

Now is the Solstice of the year,
Winter is the glad song that you hear.
Seven maids move in seven time.
Have the lads up ready in a line.

Ring out these bells.
Ring out, ring Solstice bells.
Ring Solstice bells.

Join together beneath the mistletoe.
by the holy oak whereon it grows.
Seven druids dance in seven time.
Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.

Ring out these bells.
Ring out, ring Solstice bells.
Ring Solstice bells.

Praise be to the distant sister Sun,
joyful as the silver planets run.
Seven maids move in seven time.
Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.
Ring out those bells.
Ring out, ring Solstice bells.
Ring Solstice bells.
Ring on, ring out.
Ring on, ring out.

-- Jethro Tull
