BLUE MOON ushers in New Year

Tonight’s Full Moon is very special, it is also a Lunar Eclipse and, as it is the second full moon in one month, that makes it a Blue Moon, which is very auspicious. (The peak of the Eclipse will be at 7:23pm in the UK).

This is the night to write down your Gratitude List for the past decade (meeting my wonderful husband is the highlight of mine) including the not so good stuff which helped us to grow and learn so much. Then write down your wishes and intentions for the year ahead and the next decade. Think and write carefully, as this triple auspicious Moon is very powerful.

If you are out and about tonight, take care, the revellers could be even more loopy than usual because of this Moon’s effect!

We are all ‘downloading’ some powerful Lunar energy with this moon phase (which will explain why some of you have been feeling so tired these past few days and have been having weird dreams).

Here is a selection of astrology to explain this further:-

The New Year begins with a soulful lunar eclipse that highlights the importance of work/life balance. Domestic dreams demand attention as you realise action is needed if you want to create your ideal home life this coming year. Venus aligns with theFull Moon helping you find balance and compromise with significant others. Mars retrograde suggests turning your attention inwards rather than moving forward. Explore your motivations and desires - you may be surprised by the homely truths illuminated under Full Moon. Use your new awareness to adjust future plans.

There's a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse coming up during the day on December 31. In Cancer/Capricorn, issues will be highlighted around your home, family and business. This is also likely to be a highly emotional time. At the end of the calendar year and beginning of a new one, tend to practical, third-dimensional matters, practice nurturing self-care, and notice what's happening on deep inner levels.
The tradition of creating New Year's resolutions is particularly powerful this year with the eclipse energies. Use this time to really feel into your heart. Find out what you need spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically to live a healthier, happier life in alignment with your soul. Make your intent clear and create ritual around that.
The matching bookend is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on January 14, 2010, also in Capricorn. Mercury will station the next day and begin traveling in "forward" motion again. This will be the time for us Earthlings to move forward in a big way, especially in business and day-to-day practical matters. Until then, relax, take your time and prepare for a stellar new year!
From: Alison Rae,

2009 ends with a bang, with a LUNAR ECLIPSE that's also December's second FULL MOON. It occurs today in the USA at 2:12 pm (10°14' Cancer). This eclipse is like a Full Moon on steroids, and, like all eclipses, its effects could last up to a year.
This one asks how "full-filled" you are in your home life, emotional expression and happiness. Other themes include transformation or release of relationships that are not promoting your personal evolution (Moon opposing Venus), and embracing those who do not seek to control you, but serve as positive catalysts (Moon opposing Pluto). In addition, the Moon-Saturn square asks who is holding the authority cards in your life. If they're not in your hand, they're going to be played by someone else!

The next edition of the GRASSDANCER E-newsletter will be a few days late due to the holidays. Back soon! :-)

Have a fabulous celebration tonight and
May all your dreams and wishes be fulfilled in 2010.

Many Blessings,

'Tis the Season to be wobbly...

And I don't just mean because of Festive cheer!

The build up to the Solstice was pretty intense for a lot of folks, some felt like pressure cookers ready to explode. The Solstice stirs up what has been hidden in the darkest recesses of ourselves. The Winter Solstice is the Sacred Pause of the Winter Moons. We are given an opportunity to slow down, to pause, to stop and take the time to look at what has surfaced from the depths. This has been absolutely terrifying for some folks.

Hang on in there! Now that the Light will start to return to the Earth, the Light will transform what has been brought up, heal it and dissolve it so that it will never again trouble you. So hang on in there! Be grateful for this opportunity to clear more cr*p before the New Year comes in.

I can feel the pressure easing now, after weeks of it, and I am so grateful. What seemed like a dark heavy cloud is lifting and I now feel free to enjoy the Festivities.

Join us on January 1st 2010 at 11:11am and light a white candle for Peace. Thousands around the world will be joining in. Let it burn for the whole day if you can until 11:11pm has passed in whatever timezone you are in.

Give yourselves permission to enjoy the Festive Season wherever you are - I intend to!

One of my Elders said that "Snow is a Blanket of Love that covers the Earth", I wish for you this Festive Season a warm, fluffy, white Blanket of Love that is studded with silver Stars of Hope and golden threads of Peace and Fulfilment.

Festive Blessings to you and yours
See you in 2010!

Friday, 4 December 2009


I love this time of year, I love the colour, sparkle and lights. When I go outside at night I can feel the magic in the air and it makes me feel excited. I cannot stand it when so called Spiritual people get all uppity about the crassness of Christmas and snootily say how materialistic it is etc, etc. What a miserable attitude! Christmas will be what you want it to be. You don’t have to be affected by the materialistic side of it. You can choose to enjoy it exactly how you want to. I love watching old Christmas movies whilst I am wrapping up the family’s presents, with a little glass of port, surrounded by our beloved Christmas tree and deccies (which I have been collecting since I was a child), each one means something to me and I can remember where every single one came from. All of this surrounds me and fills me with a warm glow. I still believe in the magic of this time. It is there if you tap into it.

As 2009 closes, it brings the end of the decade, the Noughties are almost over. Wow what an incredible ten years it has been. If you look back over your life, you will see that there have been lots of changes in your personal world and who you were then, is most definitely who you are not now. As we go into 2010, stop and take a deep breath, then hug yourself, you are fantastic, you have come through the most incredible journey in the last decade. Allow yourself to rest and integrate this over the Festivities and coming Winter Moons. Decide who you are going to be and how you are going to live your life in the next decade.

As many of you know Spirit always gives me a little saying regarding the coming year, and the one that I kept hearing the most was “Two thousand and ten – I am born again”. (For some it is “2010 – starting again” and for all of us “2010 – Passion rules again!”) More on this in next month’s newsletter.

Thank you for your support this year, without your continued support I would not be able to keep producing this newsletter. It has been a tough year, but we are still here! Thanks again everyone.

“Review the solar year, Solstice to Solstice. Honor your accomplishments.” (Well last year between solstices Pete and I sold our house and had our offer accepted on our new house, which we moved into just after New Year). And what a year you and I have shared together, the rollercoaster that we have all ridden in 2009 has truly transformed us. We are different people than we were this time last year. We have come far, so far in one year. We are amazing. You are amazing. Take time to honour your journey this year. It wasn’t easy for anyone, but we made it, we got through and we are still here because we are meant to be. So start enjoying your life, don’t worry about what might come - whatever does you’ll handle it, we’ll handle it together. Enjoy the Festival of Light and the Festive season, it doesn’t cost much to have a good time wherever you are.

This month Mercury goes retrograde again, yet to be honest, if feels like it started about a month early! I had six wrong numbers ‘phone our house, Christmas presents I ordered in plenty of time haven’t arrived because the companies have run out of stock and/or their suppliers have sent them the wrong stock (aarghhh!), the digi box has been playing up again (stuffing up the midseason finale of Flash Forward if you don’t mind!), the computer has been playing up again, the house ‘phones have been doing strange things – hey what’s occurin’ folks? It’s like Mercury got his knickers twisted a few times along with our communications already!

Well some days continue to be rollercoasters, the day starts well enough and everything is going smoothly, then something (or several things) happen and you end up down in the dumps but by the end of the day everything is picking up again. On the emotional level this can be a bit taxing, so treat yourself kindly if you are having one of those days or weeks.

Sometimes it happens more quickly, moments of elation and within minutes feeling despondent then back up to feeling elated. During the elated moments you feel fantastic, you have this deep inner knowing that everything is okay and you feel very excited and appreciative of your life. These moments of elation will now start to increase as we start to really live our ‘new’ lives being a part of the higher dimension 24/7 now. This is why some of you may have felt like you couldn’t connect with Spirit or your guides. This is because you are now within that same vibration/dimension. The help and support is still there but now that we are in a much higher space we have the ability to manifest exactly what we want ourselves. So now more than ever our thoughts are so important. We need to be continually aware of what we are thinking all the time not just some of the time, because we have no idea just how quickly these powerful thoughts will become manifest. Imagine the Gods and Goddesses of old being sent to Earth to be amongst the masses. If you were one of these God/desses, how would you act, speak, carry yourself, think? Remember that you are Spiritual Royalty and conduct yourself accordingly. We have been made in God/dess’s likeness, it’s about time we started acting like it!

Some of you (and that has included me) have been feeling in total overwhelm, we are like elastic that has been stretched too far and we are worried that we are not going to be able to snap back. Rest is what we need, but the demands on us make this very difficult. So we have to build it in where we can. Plenty of lovely bubble baths, candles, nice music during the day. Do not watch the news when you feel like this, it will add to your burden. Surround yourself with what is uplifting, take your essences and keep your vibration raised. (I have to keep reminding myself to take my essences at the moment, as some days it has seemed as if I haven’t even had time to bless meself – as we say in Ireland).

Remember not to get attached to or sucked into some of the awful things that are happening at the moment. We know that the old empire is falling into decline and the 3-D energies are becoming more unstable, therefore it is so important for us not to get pulled down by this lower vibrating stuff. If you feel down, take some essences, look at a flower, plant or animal, put some uplifting music on to keep your vibration raised and write down a list of ten things you are grateful for. This time of year stretches a lot of people to breaking point, don’t let yourself get yanked or stretched by anyone or anything. Take a deep breath, tune into your Higher Being, see yourself as the eight foot high Lightbeing that you are and think compassion and love. This will help you to detach emotionally and attune to a higher vibration which benefits you and all others. Grounding is essential, go for walks outside when the weather allows and soak up some sunlight (if there is any), do some gardening, get your rubber gloves on and clean the bathroom from top to bottom, all are grounding and help burn a few calories off too!

Some of you have already experienced these symptoms and some will continue to do so.
As I have said before, we are on the same path but at different stages, so just take what feels right for you now, and keep the rest as future reference. Although I speak as if these things have already happened, for some they have yet to happen.

Incredible bone weary tiredness for some. Needing to sleep all the time. All part of the downtime we have entered as Mother Earth pulls us into her heart to rest and restore. It is also to do with the energies, and we are used to these phases now in our Ascension process. (Every time I wanted to get some work done on the computer, my nose was hitting the desk after ten minutes!). Rest, rest, rest.

Shaking (this is different from Core Wobbles). Shaking that goes right through your arms and for some their legs, uncontrollable shaking that feels very strange. Stop if you can until it passes. This may go on for a few days. Once you get through this you will experience the deepest, most content Peace.

Cosmic Lethargy
Different from tiredness, you just don’t feel like doing anything, you just can’t be bothered to move let alone try and get anything done. Some of you will require duvet days and some will require couch days!

Aches and pains
Jaw and teeth - Continue with some experiencing pain in the gums as well as jaw.
Neck and spine - Continues for some. Again, check what type of headache you have and where is it located. Drink plenty of water.

Losing Your Mind
Forgetting things, not able to string words together, zoning out, feeling fuzzy headed. All part of the Ascension process. This month more than ever you need some quiet time, even if it’s only for 5-10 minutes. Build in little breaks often. This phase doesn’t last long.

Heart chakra continues to be very tender at the moment. There is so much Love continually available to us all, yet the masses only ever seem to tap into it at this time of year. Many are experiencing loss and bereavement, as some Souls are using the Winter Solstice energies to leave this dimension. This has been a shock for some especially just before Christmas. Our hearts are also affected greatly by the news, so again try not to get sucked in. What happens is that it activates your pain body and keeps you in a lower vibration. Whilst it sometimes feels good to have a group blub about something, most of the time it is not the best thing for you. Empaths and Sensitives will be feeling this heart sensitivity quite acutely at the moment. Massage some St. John’s Wort herbal oil into your heart chakra at night (or Lavender oil if you cannot get SJW).

Skin itching
Continues for some as they physically adjust to the increase in light that they have downloaded. It is darn irritating whilst it happens as you feel as if something is crawling under your skin. Luckily this phase doesn’t last too long.

As the Winter Solstice approaches, Mother Earth pulls us downwards, wanting us to come and rest awhile in her loving embrace. It is time to stop, to slow down, to reflect. Those of us who have been pushing on have found that we simply cannot anymore (like me falling asleep on the computer several times!) We just want to sit and stare into space instead of working. All of this is part of the sacred pause that only occurs at this time of year. This seasonal pull into the Earth Mother’s breast feels so strong this year, it is like She knows what a tough year we have had and wants to give us some nurturing and healing. The Winter Solstice for me is always the most powerful quarter festival of the year. It is time now to prepare for the Solstice which is why it is important that we do slow down and take time to go within and to listen. Many years ago I was fortunate enough to do Inipi (sweatlodge) at the Winter Solstice. It was wonderful to get away from the Christmas craziness and go inwards spiritually, emotionally and physically during this sacred ceremony. I always have a strong urge to go on retreat around this time of year. However, you do not have to travel to do this, you can do this at home by building in quiet times, time for reflection of your year and sitting in the stillness, the silence, open for any messages that may come through for you. Acknowledging the year’s end is always so symbolic. Thank you 2009.


Immerse yourself in celebrating this
glorious time of year, your Glorious Self and All Creation.
Everything about yourself and your life.

Believe that without you this World would be a much poorer place. Believe that your Light is all powerful. Believe that you can manifest abundance of every kind. Believe that you can have fun wherever you are. Believe that miracles do happen.
