NEW MOON Blessings!

NEW MOON Jan 2015

Artist: Amanda Clark

New Beginnings – Authenticity – Taking flight

The New Moon is in Aquarius and is also the first SuperMoon of 2015.
This means that your New Moon Wish List will be even more empowered.
Air signs will benefit particularly from the Super New Moon
the rest of us just need to chill out and slow things down a bit

The last Full Moon really affected us; it accelerated the kick in the butt we have all been getting from Mother Earth and the Cosmos since the New Year.
Physical symptoms for those who are super sensitive included:
Extreme tiredness, dizziness, heart palps, nausea.
A feeling of heaviness, of being burdened and carrying a heavy load, (not helped by recent world events which made us despair, as we did not have the energy to even want to make a difference).
Crisis of faith. Massive fear also came up and deep anger rose to the surface, as did deep grief.
Some folks felt really strange, like something else had taken over your body, your shell was just about functioning but inside felt very strange.
Weird dreams, lots going on in dreamtime but not able to remember a lot of them.  Much sifting and sorting going on in dreamtime and this is still happening.

However, there has been a shift, things are lightening and brightening.  The days are lengthening, the Snow Drops have appeared and the leaves of the Bluebells are already growing. Spring is just around the corner, but don’t be in a rush to get there. There is still the possibility of frost and snow.

When we feel this shift we are in a hurry to race ahead with our new dreams, goals and projects, but the time is not right.  We still need to honour the Season that we are in and prepare fully and properly for the next turn of the Wheel.  If you try to force this, your plans will be thwarted. Get organized, be disciplined, create a sense of order around you and you will be set to go.

Back to today’s New Moon:

Artist: Joanna Wall

Aquarius – “I know / I belong”
Aquarius represents truth, science, altruism, hope, ideals, inspiration, new ideas, associations, friendships/community, inventions, eccentricity, electronic media, computing, Astrology, anything unusual, New Age interests and Humanitarian pursuits.  The sign of the Visionary, Aquarius sees the bigger picture and takes action.
Aquarius rules the ankles, lower legs, circulatory system, veins, arteries (esp. hardening of), spasms and cramps.
Ensure that you are drinking plenty of water, even when it is cold (have it warm or hot instead) and to avoid spasms and cramps ensure that you have enough magnesium in your diet (nuts and seeds, leafy green veg). Or you can use magnesium body oil, or put Epsom salts in your bath.

It is interesting to have a look at which house you have Aquarius in, as this New Moon supports new beginnings in that area.
For me I have Aquarius in the 6th house – health, service we give to others, co-workers, exercise, food, herbs and supplements.  Spot on!
Before looking this up, as part of my Personal Plan for 2015, I had already decided that in 2015 I need to lose some weight and get fitter and have already been devising ways to do this.  I also want to make new friends, as it is lonely working on your own all the time.  I have also re-committed to my role as an Herbalist and Green Witch and will be going a lot more public with it this year, sharing more tips and lots of new products.
So take a look at your chart and see which house Aquarius is giving you a new start in.

We are still in the New Moon Window that I described in my previous post. You still have a couple of weeks to clear the clutter, clean everywhere, and get organized before Chinese New Year.  That is when the New Year energies definitely kick in, so you need to have sorted yourself out by then, as this sets the tone and pattern of your entire year ahead.

The Aquarius New Moon invites us to step away from the past, to drop all that has worried us and held us back and believe that anything is possible now. Whereas the last Full Moon tested our faith, this New Moon gives us a renewed and solid faith in ourselves and our dreams and goals.  The journey between these Moons has been hard, dark and deep and now we are coming up into the air and the light again.  We are clearer now, we are rock solid in our own truth and very grounded in the reality we want for ourselves.  We have detached from media persuasion and can see clearly the game/s our governments are playing (do they really think the People are stupid? Do they really not realise how many of us are onto them?) 
Aquarius blows the cobwebs from our eyes and pours truth into them.  Aquarius reminds us that we are all connected, and that by focusing on the positive we can bring about the changes that are much needed in our world, and we are most successful when we all pull together for the same goal.

Open yourself to new contacts and associations this New Moon, with your new found clarity you may feel open to joining new groups that are of like purpose.  These will be very different from any groups you have joined before. The old 3-D groups are falling apart, only those holding the new vibration of Earth will want to join each other.

This New Moon encourages you to trust your inner guidance, to follow your gut feelings and intuition.  2015 is all about you; caring for yourself more, putting yourself first before anything and anyone else, changing your image so that it reflects who you now are (you have just come through a massive rebirth and may find that the clothes and colours you were wearing no longer suit you).
It is the year of sharing your authentic, unique, and original, true Self with the world.
It is the year of sharing your unique gifts and skills (of which you have many) with the world.

And the great thing is, you are ready to do this now.  In fact there is a flutter of excitement, like butterfly wings, in your tummy as you know you need to step into this larger, colourful, fabulous You.  In fact you are rather like that butterfly who has spent so long in the cocoon, 2015 is the year that you get to show your colours and fabulous wings so that you can fly!

You will be surprising yourself and those who know you, as you may decide to do something completely off the wall. Good for you – go for it!  Trust where your gut (inner teacher) leads you.
Quietly and confidently work on your dreams and goals, they have their own timetable, follow your inner guidance and feel your confidence growing. You cannot fail (so control that mind of yours).
Life is too short to worry about anything or anyone; there is nothing/no-one holding you back now. So enjoy being more colourful, living larger, doing what you love, living and loving more deeply and enjoy your year ahead.


“I am unique”
“I am authentic”
“I love myself”
“Anything is possible”
“I believe”
“I joyfully express myself”
“I love being of service through my gifts and talents”
“I am open to meeting new people”
“I am open to trying something new”
“I love being Myself”
“I am free to be ME”

HEADS UP – Mercury is retrograde

Mercury retrograde is not the time to be starting anything new.
Retro = re = going back. Sometimes old faces appear from the past, be discerning – what do they want? Some will be most welcome and bring much joy, others need to be let go of and the ties cut once and for all. 

As you know, Mercury retrograde is about backing up computer data, getting the car serviced, fixing what is broken/leaking, doing all those outstanding mundane jobs, double checking travel arrangements, being careful how you communicate both verbally and also written (texts/emails etc). Post also gets affected so you may need to send things a little earlier than you were planning.

Avoid major purchases or impulse purchases, or major hairstyle changes during Mercury retrograde.  And avoid signing contracts of any sort.  Double and triple check everything during Mercury retrograde, this transit can make us overlook something important which could cause us problems further down the line.

I love Mercury retrogrades, everything slows down a bit, giving us a chance to catch up with what is outstanding.  It’s the perfect time for taking a look at your plans and projects and revising/reworking them. 
Things will be back to normal by the end of February.

'Flying into Spring'

Let me know what brave new changes you are making; let’s support each other as we dare to fly in 2015!

Love and Blessings to y’all.

NEW YEAR 2015 - A Blessing or a curse?

NEW YEAR – A Blessing or a Curse?

Welcome to 2015 - another New Year around the Wheel of the Seasons and our lives.

Have you made any resolutions? I haven’t. I don’t believe in them. I believe that every day our eyes open is a blessing, and each day we are given is a chance to start again.

After the festivities, most folks are exhausted and the last thing they need is any more pressure. The build-up to Christmas was intense and very pressurized for a lot of folks, so why put yourself under any more pressure by forcing yourself to commit to resolutions that quite frankly, you are not really ready for?

And it hasn’t been an easy start to 2015; in fact it has been quite rough for some folks.  It’s thanks to Uranus square Pluto.  These squares have been knocking us all around a bit for the past five years and we have one more of these doozies to get through in March.  This is why some folks are feeling that 2015 has started off ‘cursed’ for them.

Astrologer Robert Brown ( wrote about this brilliantly:

"Uranus square Pluto rages on, creating the need for us to let go of that which no longer serves us in lieu of new ways of living life.

"If you are hateful you must change. If you are controlling you must change. If you are running a country and your citizens are not happy you must change. If you want to cut people’s heads off to make a point you must change. If you are unhappy you must change. There is no way around this and we should all be getting this by now, especially if you have planets that are between nine and sixteen degrees of any sign. If you don’t know your chart but you are experiencing high highs and low lows then you are most likely getting a nod from Uranus square Pluto.”

The current Full Moon hasn’t been helping either, as it has brought emotions very close to the surface and some feel out of control, or as if they are losing their grip.  It’s just the Full Moon, once it starts to wane, you will feel better.

The current astrological energies are also pushing us regarding our relationships, especially the relationship to ourselves.  We can no longer ignore what we have been ignoring.  We can no longer be in a rut; in fact we are all being rudely turfed out of any ruts we may be in.  It is a scary time.  We know that things have to change yet we have no idea where we are headed or what we are meant to be doing.  I was mentioning this to a dear friend (and awesome artist) on FB the other day, and she summed it up perfectly:

“Some years ago someone asked me when I was on the edge of stepping out, whenever you've made a jump before have you regretted it? The answer is no but it doesn't stop the anxiety number I do on my self and here we go again.”
-- Kay Leverton, Artist

Yet there is a lot of good stuff happening too. Jupiter (the planet of good fortune and opportunities) helps us to get our dreams off the ground, and whilst these may take a minimum of six months to start manifesting, we have the support to start the process now. You might find the following exercise helpful:


You will need -
A brand new journal and pen
Candle and matches
Glass of water

Ensure that you cannot be interrupted for a couple of hours and all ‘phones and computers are switched off.
Be comfortable and take a drink of your water.
Light a candle and bathe in its soft, golden light.  Breathe it in and carefully use your hands to cup the golden light and sweep it over your Aura, front and back. Then bless your new journal and pen by wafting them over the flame (which will also cleanse them).
Now take a few deep breaths.  Listen to your breathing and allow it to slow down as you enjoy moving into stillness. Breathe in - Inspiration.

Before you start writing, ask yourself these questions:

- What areas of yourself/your life did you neglect last year?

- Who or what got too much of your energy and left you out of balance?

- Who or what needs to be released from your life now? (Anything/anyone that drains you, makes you feel sad or down etc).

- Are you surrounded by Beauty? (Does your home feel like a beauty-full sanctuary? Does your heart lift with joy when you walk around your home? Is there beauty all around you in every room?)

- Do the people in your life know who you are? Do they support your dreams and goals? Do they uplift you? Do they inspire you?

Now it is time to start writing.
Always in the future tense – as if this has already happened. (Never use the words ‘I want’ or ‘I wish’ or you will be left wanting and wishing and not actualizing/manifesting. Instead use ‘I give thanks for …..’).

Write down all that you intend to manifest this year, in every area of your life. Think big – really big – there are NO limits. Enjoy the process. Feel excited. You forget that actually you are a Master Manifestor and there is absolutely no reason why you can’t manifest what you want. (Unless of course, the Universe has something even better lined up for you).
When you feel you cannot write anymore – at the bottom write:

“I give thanks for all this and more, for all the Blessings that continually come my way. I am abundant in every way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!”

Keep drinking the water to honour the flow of your life as you do this.

When you feel that your session has come to a natural end, send the light of the candle out to someone/something/somewhere in need. Then fold your chakras for protection (as this exercise will have opened them) and place a bubble of gold around your Aura.

You can always add to your Manifestation List too, just remember to put the above sentence at the end of each new section that you add.

Remember - You are in control. You can decide whether this year will be a Blessing or a curse for you.

At the end of last year I came across this quote, which will be my inspiration for this year:

“Be bold, be adventurous. Do profound things, dazzle yourself and the World.
Contribute to society and live LARGE. Life is short, make every moment count. It is never too late to find your passion.”
By Sue Kreitzman - a colourful, artistic, positive Wise Woman who relishes being in her seventies.

The start of 2015 has seen a major urge to purge clutter. We are clearing clutter on all levels as many now need a simpler way of life. and are enjoying clearing their clutter.  In January, we put away the Christmas decorations and the house seems bare, the temptation to fill the blankness/emptiness with something else is strong. Yet we need clear, empty space in order for the new opportunities and abundance that is ready for us, to come in.  If we don’t have space for it, it won’t be able to come to us.

We are now in what I call the New Year Window. This is the gap between 1st January and Chinese New Year which starts 18/19th February.  This gives us a few weeks to get ourselves sorted, to clear clutter and clean the house from top to bottom. (I will write more about Feng Shui and Chinese New Year nearer the time).  Use these weeks to start creating space for what you want to come in.  The energies of the New Year never really start kicking in until Chinese New Year starts; so make the most of this opportunity.

For me personally, my intention for 2015 is to be kinder to myself. At the end of last year I got so stressed I got ill, I put myself under so much pressure and it was for the benefit of others, many others. I will not do that to myself anymore.
I allowed others to get to me, to pop what little confidence I had – I will not let anyone do that to me again.
I never gave myself time for me, for beauty rituals that always make me feel better (like making time each day to massage some of my ‘Goddess Gold’ luxury oil into my face, neck and hands).
I allowed work to swallow up time that could have been spent outside in the fresh air and sunshine. And for making time to go out for a walk or to dance. This year I will make time for regular walks and will dance every day.
I allowed work to stop me from spending more time in my garden. This year I will nurture and connect with my garden, our Nature Spirits and the Elementals there so much more this year.
I allowed others to dictate my free time and always did what they wanted, not what I wanted. I will not do that anymore.
I didn’t listen to enough music. I will listen to music every day.
I gave my mind and thoughts too much leeway, this year I will be in charge of them.

Being kind to myself means that I will be even kinder to others.

I believe that Kindness is the key to this year.  Everyone is dealing with some kind of struggle; we must be mindful of this and control our egos when our buttons get pressed. Being vengeful or wanting revenge is not the way forward. Projecting anger is simply not on. (There is a big difference between genuine valid anger and projecting anger).  Controlling how you react to what is happening is key.  You are a grown-up in Spiritual terms now, so don’t keep reacting like a child!  It is the time of the Healed Healer, so keep in check all those old habits that trick you into thinking you are not.  You have a complete arsenal of spiritual tools at your disposal, so stop being an arse and use them! 

You are bigger and better than whatever is going on. You are destined for greatness, if you and your ego would ever allow it to reach you.  Drop the crappy behavior, thoughts, energy and step into the hugeness of who you really are.  Stand tall.  A choreographer I once worked with (who was camper than Christmas) used to yell at us: “Tits, teeth and tushie!”. So chin up, tits out, keep smiling and wiggle that tushie into your fabulous year ahead!

And if you need any help along the way, you know where I am.

With much love
Elly xx
