NEW MOON BLESSINGS and Kong Hee Faut Chay!
This seemed prevalent amongst Sensitives in the lead up to this New Moon - a soul weary exhaustion. If you feel like this, then you must stop and rest and allow your physical body to catch up and integrate the energies that have been bombarding us lately.
Lack of integrity
This seemed to rear its head for many in the past couple of weeks, particularly during the Dark Nights of the Moon. In fact some downright nasty stuff was going on, as the dark side of others was revealed to us, some of it quite shocking! It broadsided some Sensitives, as it seemed to come out of nowhere. It is quite a slap in the face when someone you have helped in the past shows you no respect and acts without integrity, however, be grateful that this illumination has occurred. You now know where you stand and where you no longer need to waste energy.
What a revealing time this is. As we continue to clear clutter on every level, it seems the Universe is joining in and helping us to clear ourselves energetically of those whom we no longer need to think about, help or worry about. That might seem harsh and unspiritual, however, many Sensitives have been drained by others in all kinds of ways for too long and now that is all stopping. You may not have even been aware that this person (or people) were draining you until it stops.
This second New Moon in Aquarius “can be a signal that there is a need for us to hit the reset button more than once in terms of visioning, friendships and associations, and personal goals. We get a second chance to intention set.” (From: www.AeprilsAstrology.com)
There has also been an increase in Earthquake activity. Earth Sensitives will have been aware of this (often signalled by hearing a high pitch tone in your ear/s). Mother Earth is shaking things up again. More worryingly the fault line that triggered Fukushima is active again.
Very prophetic at the moment, so do write your dreams down as they will make sense further down the line.
New Moon Rituals
As well as writing your New Moon Wish List, this moon is perfect for taking a Ritual Bath.
Use Epsom Salts (salt is great for cleansing negative energy), several tablespoonfuls – sprinkle some Lavender oil on them and then add to bath water. Before you step into the bath, set your intention and send your prayer out for cleansing and for your energies to be restored to you. Immerse yourself in the cleansing, fragrant energy and allow the water spirits to cleanse and soothe you. (Epsom salts also help you to detox in a gentle way). You will feel very relaxed afterwards, so it’s a good idea to do this Ritual Bath before bedtime. Sweet dreams!

The planets continue to help us on our sacred pathways by helping us to sift, sort, forgive and let go.
We have a rare New Moon in Aquarius – this is the second New Moon in Aquarius and is the second Supermoon of the year and therefore very powerful.
The New Moon then almost immediately moves into Pisces and those who are Water signs (or have a lot of water in their chart) will feel this more acutely.
PISCES – ‘I believe’
Pisces is a water sign and represents compassion, imagination, faith, mysticism, intuition, escapism, dissolution, chaos, spirituality, deception, delusion, martyrdom, sacrifice, religion, caring professions, creativity, art, acting, anything connected to water i.e. the Sea.
Pisces are not wishy-washy water signs, far from it. Their gregarious, welcoming, fun side hides a steel interior. A Pisces woman usually gets what she wants - and it can be a bit rough on others whilst she’s getting it. Very generous Pisces can often be disappointed when the emotional investment they have put into others doesn’t pay off or is not reciprocated (that’s when they can fall into the martyrdom role). They are generous, loyal friends and hard workers. Blessed with natural intuition and psychic abilities, many become mediums or go into the spiritual arts. Their shadow side can trip them up however, as they can delude themselves with the stories they weave and they expect everyone else to believe them. Their shadow side can tempt them to use their psychic abilities for their own ego needs rather than the greater good. Pisces is the one sign of the zodiac more likely to develop addictions than any other. However, they are very strong and need to remain on the side of light in order to truly manifest their greatness in this world. They are powerful people who can bring about change in this world, they are natural leaders and teachers and fantastic at inspiring others. They are great networkers and organizers and always good to have on your team.
Aquarius reminds us to celebrate our uniqueness, to be original, to stride out on our own and leave the herd behind. Aquarians are usually quite quirky and encourage us to be the same, to unearth our quirkiness, to celebrate it and share it with the world - it sure makes the world a more interesting place! By stepping into your uniqueness fearlessly, you give others permission to do the same. This will have a greater effect on world change than anything else. If we all make a stand for uniqueness, originality and creativity, then only positive change can happen. And what a wonderful example we set for the children following after us, to create a world where it is safe to be different, to truly be yourself. So do something new, be innovative and have fun.
For those who have been working with the recent energies, you can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. You are receiving clarity about who and how you want to be in the world. Others are on the periphery of receiving this clarity, yet can feel the change inside and feel excited knowing that something new is about to be born within themselves. In fact we are all being given a chance to rise again this year, fully empowered and unique, and life will just get better as we dive deep into our creativity and uniqueness. It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing, it doesn’t matter if anyone else is doing the same kind of things you want to do, they are not you, they do not have your energy, they have a different vibration. There is enough room for all of us, so there is no need to worry. Learn your craft well and thoroughly and you will have a solid foundation to build from. If you get butterflies just thinking about what you are daring to do, then you are on the right track. That scary, fluttery feeling is your personal indicator that you are about to leap off the cliff only this time, you are happy about it!
Pisces energy makes us dreamy and heightens our intuitive and psychic faculties. Dreamtime should become more active and prophetic also. (Make a note of those dreams, as you will be given important information during this transit). If you find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed, do something grounding like gardening or going for a long walk in Nature, eat root vegetables and lots of green veg.
There is a tremendous opportunity for healing with this New Moon. Particularly healing the past and heavy burdens. It’s time to release this bondage from your cells so that you can feel freer and more like the Light Being that you truly are.

We have a fantastic essence ‘Solstice Sunrise’ that helps to clear cellular impacted trauma from the cells.

Uranus and Jupiter continue to give us great blessings of luck and opportunity. So don’t lose heart, this is a much luckier year than recent years, any rocky patches are opportunities to forgive, heal and release ensuring that our path ahead is as clear as possible. It really is a time to let go of all that heavy cr*p that has been weighing you down. Let go of them/it/whatever, you don’t need to drag that into your future any more. Many folks are still into major clutter clearing and now that Mercury is moving forward again, we have another burst of energy to help us continue to do this, on all levels. It’s time to make your plans work for those dreams and goals you have been thinking about since the New Year. We are supported in our endeavours, and this year it is definitely possible to make our dreams a reality. (As long as you have a plan and take action guided by your intuition).
They also invite us to lighten up. This actually is an easier year and you can achieve much if you choose to focus on joy rather than misery, fun rather than fear and awesomeness rather than apathy. So what are you going to choose?
KONG HEE FAUT CHAY
And it’s Chinese New Year, the year of the Wood Sheep (aka Year of the Ram/Goat and year of the Green Sheep).
In Chinese Astrology, the Sheep is considered the most spiritual of animals and is especially associated with the Earth. Wood is the dominant element for this year.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine the element that you most need to look after is water, i.e. the Kidneys. You will need to nourish these in 2015, reduce stress and stay away from stressful people/situations this year, sleep well, eat well (adding warming spices to foods will be beneficial, as is eating licorice – the healthy organic kind not the sweet candy kind!). Avoid detox regimes this year, as this will adversely affect the liver.
This is a Yin year which means you will need to regularly ground yourself (as mentioned in my previous posts), rest well, and meditate more as it is a year for inner work.
Sheep are followers more than leaders, so there won’t be dramatic leaps forward, more steady progress with everything moving forward.
At last a year that will make us all feel a little more comfortable! Sheep cannot go backwards or sideways, they can only go forwards. Therefore in the Year of the Sheep we will all be able to move forwards now. Slow and steady progress with some fun along the way. This will be a more sociable year with new friendships and collaborations coming together, which will be lasting and exciting. Existing friendships and collaborations will deepen, as you go into the next phase of your relationships (be that personal, romantic or business). Friendship between relatives will deepen this year too and there may be many gatherings to attend.
A Sheep year is a healing year (particularly after the stresses of recent years), and further confirms what I said in an earlier post, that this is the Year of Self Care, the year of looking after ourselves – FIRST – before anyone or anything else. (How well are you doing with that btw?). By healing ourselves and looking after ourselves, we feel stronger and less vulnerable. We are willing to open ourselves to new relationships and friendships without fear, this time we feel strong in the way that we decide to care for others, we are more mature and more accepting now.
Sheep also confirms what was said in previous posts about this being a Creative year. Sheep supports creative endeavours. A Sheep year is the year to express art and beauty, to indulge in being a Culture Vulture.
The Goat aspect of this year reminds us that goats are incredibly agile in difficult circumstances. Goat brings us the ability to remain agile in whatever situation we find ourselves. Goats are determined critters and help us to keep going whatever the odds.
The Ram part reminds us not to butt heads, or to bang our heads against a brick wall. Ram reminds us that sometimes it is better to walk away with our dignity intact. Ram also comes to us as a guardian totem and will offer his power as and when you need it. (Sometimes it takes a battering ram to break through someone or something tough).
The year of the Sheep is the preparation year for 2016, which will be a Yang fire energy year and completely different to this one. So follow Sheep’s guidance for this year, as it will help you to build a strong physical and spiritual foundation for the years ahead.
FENG SHUI TIPS
To welcome prosperity for the year ahead; gently roll 8, 9 or 10 oranges through your front door, (they represent gold rolling into your home), then place them in a beautiful bowl in the centre of the home.
To maintain wealth during the year ahead; always ensure that your kitchen is spotless, especially your cooker (it represents abundance as it always provides).
And clean your drains regularly. It is essential that anything not required is able to leave your property easily. (It corresponds to the bowel in physical terms). Smelly drains are festering negative energy, which brings bad chi to your home.
Until next time, enjoy – enjoy – enjoy!
