LEO – ‘I WILL / I Love’
Artist: Josephine Wall
LEO - Fire sign. The Lover and charmer of the zodiac - could charm the birds off the trees (and male Leos are very good at charming women).  They excel in the Arts especially acting and performing as they are not shy of the spotlight, in fact they love being the centre of attention and having an adoring audience.  Leos are wonderful to have as a friend, fun and sociable and very loving. Good at working with children and young people as they understand them. Leos seek fame, and their arrogance can take them a long way, but it can also trip them up at times. They can also be lazy, wanting everyone else to wait on them. They are strong willed and very good at manipulating people in such a subtle way that folks don’t even realise how their strings have been pulled! They express themselves boldly in the world and are fearless when they are aiming for what they want. They always brighten a place up with their cheerful energy and are great to have around.
Leo represents pride, expression, romance, nobility, leadership, gambling/speculation, games, entertainment/the Arts, education, youth, drama, working with children, fame.


January continues to be rocky for some as we settle into the New Year.  Hang on in there, once the Chinese New Year kicks in, the energies will change.  The current year - the Year of the Sheep - has been hard on many folks, thankfully we will receive more uplifting and dynamic energy in the Year of the Monkey. (More on this in my next Blog post).

We are still in the New Year Window as I call it, Chinese New Year starts on Feb 7th, so you still have time to spring clean and clear the clutter.  Once you have physically cleaned your space, use ‘The Cleanser’ spray mist to clear any lingering unwanted energies, especially in the corners of each room including hallways, inside wardrobes and cupboards etc, so that you have a completely fresh, clean, energetic space for the New Year to really land in your home.  You can find ‘The Cleanser’ here:

If you have moved furniture around, changed curtains/furnishings etc for the new season, then you will also enjoy our ‘Feng Shui’ spray mist, which is fantastic for balancing the Chi (energy) and brings peace, harmony and balance to your home.

Other Astrology

Mercury is still retrograde until the end of January. Catch up with outstanding jobs, clear the decks ready for your new creations.  Mercury retrograde also gives us an opportunity to upgrade, one of my friends had to replace her computer and ‘phones recently, whilst inconvenient, it is a positive sign that her entire life is upgrading.  There are always plenty of positives with Mercury retrograde.  However, do remember to think before speaking or hitting Send until this retrograde is over. 
Mercury ‘couples’ with Pluto at the Full Moon bringing ‘intense and penetrating’ energy.  This could have you worrying obsessively, others may be aggressive (do your best to avoid being aggressive to others) – breathe!

The Full Moon also has a square from Mars in Scorpio, this can also be quite intense energy.  Scorpios (and those with Scorp in their chart) may feel tense during the Full Moon transit.  Tempers may flare up and you may feel grumpy. Mars is also the planet of sexuality and creativity, so we are encouraged to make love/art not war!

To avoid unnecessary dramas – breathe - it’s temporary and will ease off as the Full Moon wanes.  Find time to yourself and meditate if you can, it will help you cope with projections from others and any challenges that may come up. 


Because the Full Moon is in Leo, we are urged to channel our energies into creativity, to get in touch with our personal power and to realise that anything is possible.  However, resist the urge to be a diva and instead dive deep and lose yourself in your creativity instead.

Message from the Full Moon:

Speak your truth

Say aloud what your desires are

Share what you are thinking

Be proud of who you are

Ask for help (and don’t be too proud to do so)

Be open to new opportunities

Be open-minded re the way you see/think things
– this Full Moon offers new perspectives

Be open to making mistakes

Be balanced

Think before doing – focus on what works for all concerned

Be fully present – stop worrying – enjoy each moment as it happens

Be what you most want in life

Get in touch with your inner roar!

Find time for fun
(Leo loves having fun and so does your inner child)

Leos are incredibly loving and this Leo Full Moon reminds us to be as loving as a child to ourselves.  In our busy lives we often leave ourselves until last and that makes us out of balance. You are hereby given permission to look after yourself, to pamper yourself, to hug yourself and shower yourself with love – oh and to have lots and lots of fun! J

To know how this Full Moon may affect you, here’s an insight for your Sun Sign by the wonderful Chani Nicolas (

ARIES / Aries rising
This Saturday’s full moon lights up your creative projects and love affairs. Normally this would be a celebration of all of creation from the playful to the erotic. However something much feistier is at play, thanks to a square from Mars. Again you’re in a situation where passion may reign but the pursuit might leave you feeling more burnt then bodacious. Make sure to temper romantic expectations and to take care of your creative energy by appreciating and honoring it no matter who else does or does not.

TAURUS / Taurus rising
With Saturday’s full moon in Leo highlighting your foundations, your roots, and your ancestral heritage, you get to notice what psychological floorboards support you and which trip you up. We can honor our lineage and still be critical of what was passed down to us. Don’t be afraid to hold up the philosophies of your family for a deeper critique. Don’t be afraid of raising your voice in protest, in interest or in support of a different way of looking at a difficulty. Don’t be afraid of shifting your consciousness and freeing yourself from a paradigm where you were never going to be granted your own power. You no longer need to play by the rules that were meant to hold you back or keep you out of the game completely.

GEMINI / Gemini rising
Saturday’s full moon in Leo reveals its light in a part of your chart that has to do with your communications and your daily deeds that must get done. This could amplify the amount of activities that you’re involved in this week, but it also could imply that there is a conversation that you need to have that reveals more than you bargained for, both about yourself and those you are in communication with. Speaking our mind and sharing our thoughts is sometimes an all-consuming endeavor, particularly if we venture into the bad lands of social media. Because the nature of this full moon is somewhat inflammatory, take into consideration that whatever you communicate may not be heard in the way you wish it to be. Take caution then and try to temper the heat with some cool, dry and creative wit.

CANCER / Cancer rising
There could be interactions that occur this week that get into issues that are far from simple. There could be conversations this week that entice you into a difficult corner to get out of. There may be communications with others that walk a fine line between powerful sentiments and abuse of one’s power in the context. If so, aim to understand the imbalance. What is the nature of it and how do you play into it, benefit from it or resist perpetuating it? Notice how the dynamics of difficult conversations help you to get a better understanding of imbalance in your life. With Saturday’s full moon highlighting your second house of income and inner resources, you’ll be able to see what talents you have developed and how they support you. Focus your attention on believing in the power of your gifts rather than what you perceive you might lack.

LEO / Leo rising
With a full moon in Leo on Saturday, this week’s pressure peaks on your home turf. This brings a focused amount of attention to you, those you are partnering with and the foundations of your relationship. For some this will be about where you hang your hat. For others this will be about the underlying themes of being in partnership. For some of you it can lead to a tension around how to manage your time when it comes to those in your life you want to give all of yours to.  Take a moment for yourself.  Get back to the schedules of self-care that help you to combat the stress of the day to day.   Get back to the practical things that you can do to help yourself remember your power. Get back to the moment-by-moment practices you can partake in that help you to refresh your energy levels and reset your stress markers. Get back to all the things that help you process the information that relationships can offer. Make room for the loves in your life that want to help you burn bright, not burn out your lovely light.

VIRGO / Virgo rising
Grab your notepad and your paintbrushes, your camera and your favorite book of poetry. Duck out the back door and get lost in the lands that remind you that you are a creator, not just a consumer.  Create yourself everyday through the colors you chose to wear, through the way you do your hair, through the ideas, visions and art your surround yourself with. Consume colors. Consume lovers. Consume the contours of the land that surrounds you. Visit the monuments that inspire your inner artist and explore new relationships that can help you to uncover your hidden passions. Explore those that you love and let them do the same with you. Explore your own inner, possibly hidden, resources via the journey that love lends you.
Take time to honor the muses that surround you. Take them in. Take them out. Take them everywhere but for granted. Revel in difficult conversations with romantic partners. Get intimate with the intricacies of intimacy and all that it reveals. Like the fear of losing it. Like the need to control it. Like the desire to run from it for fear of all it is capable of changing in your life.

LIBRA / Libra rising
Crowded houses can breed temperamental guests and family members. Since there is a lot going on in the part of your chart that deals with core issues, family concerns and the foundational strengths and weaknesses upon which your life is built, you have good reason to be reviewing the aforementioned. Remember to wear kid gloves and maintain the appropriate patience necessary when trying to understand the nature of these complex and historic issues. They run deep. Parsing out the problematic takes time. So much can get missed when we try to see things simplistically. So many misunderstandings take place when we make up our mind before considering the conditions from which the problems arose. So much pain is created simply because of the environment in which it exists. Create an environment of your choosing. Make your home a place where equality can exist, where freedom of speech is expressed and where dominance is transformed into interdependent power and mutual respect. Make your home into a place of collective celebratory healing and invite those that get you over to get down with you and celebrate Saturday’s full moon in Leo.

SCORPIO / Scorpio rising
This astrology may require you to make an effort to communicate thoughtfully even if the tone demands that it is profoundly honest. This astrology ask for a rigorous effort to be made on your part when examining your motivations for saying what you do when you do and for understanding what kind of world it may engender. So many of us feel starved for human one-on-one interaction and forget to create meaningful and deep present time conversations. In short, don’t waste the entire week in an online argument. Challenge yourself to take your ideas to the people you share your life with.  Saturday’s full moon finds you celebrated for your efforts in the world at large. It may come at a cost to you personally or may recognize you for efforts that no longer light you up. There will be much that occurs this spring that will have you understanding the nature of what you desire and why. The process will shift your relationship to success and accomplishment. Take note this week of what feels right for you when your efforts are recognized and what feels no longer worth the work.

SAGITTARIUS / Sagittarius rising
With a willingness to investigate inner resources left untapped you can make major strides this week towards being even more efficiently self-supporting. The key to unlocking these unknown reserves is self-inquiry. Getting the gold and looting the dragon’s lair comes at the steep cost of self-knowledge. It’s worth it but, like anything that is valuable, it isn’t free. Saturday’s full moon in Leo arrives just in time to remind you of all the things you have yet to learn, all the places that you have yet to go and all of the parts of yourself you still have to get to know. This full moon may give you reason to make a concerted effort towards untying yourself from the things in your psyche that want to hold you back and keep you in a state of suffering instead of on a quest for your liberation.

CAPRICORN / Capricorn rising
Saturday’s full moon wants you to take note of the investments that you have made, see what fruits they are bearing and behold their beauty and their rotten parts. Both are important to take note of. Not every investment is a wise one and not every collaboration will bring about the results you expected. They may in fact bring about a result completely unexpected and yet very welcome.  The rest of this week’s astrology stays centered on your nature, your personality, your identity, your appearance and your body. You may be offered reflections about yourself that help you to appreciate who you are becoming. You may be offered an opportunity to become better acquainted with your own peculiar personality. You may be continuing on a path that helps you to shed the layers of your former lives and therefore embrace this one with a greater gusto.

AQUARIUS / Aquarius rising
With the sun’s return to your sign this week there’s a distinct, refreshing note of relief and release. Although there is still much muttering away that goes on behind the scenes and in your unconscious, you get a lift from the mere fact that your birthday becomes you.  So celebrate.  Saturday’s full moon brings you into a possibly abrupt relationship dynamic. You may want to make it one of your birthday resolutions to learn how to deal effectively with divas and disaster queens. You may want to make a habit out of deescalating your nervous system when someone else throws a hissy fit. You may want to make it your mantra this week to use the exterior experiences you’ve been given to better understand your internal reactions. This is your season of renewal. Set yourself on a journey that helps you course correct. This is a time where you get to reap all that you have sewn, understand all you accomplished last year, and get set to build upon it this year.
Leave the unhealthy relationship dynamics in 2015.  You are older, wiser and more able to deal with the intricacies of relationships without having to get caught, twisted and turned inside out over other people’s unprocessed demons. Besides, you’ve still got too much going for you out in the world to get sidetracked or derailed. And with Pallas Athene, the asteroid named after the goddess of wisdom, in your sign you’ve got bright ideas burning a hole in your pocket.
I say spend them.

PISCES / Pisces rising
Saturday’s full moon wants to highlight that which can help you feel better as well. There may be an action that you need to take to help your system work within its limits. A little time off never hurt anyone and by the looks of it there is more than one social situation that wants to entertain you if you get lonely. It’s just that what you crave might be the kind of friend that you can hang with that doesn’t tax your system. If you don’t have those folks around, then equal out your party time with your introspective excursions.

Let yourself off the hook.  It’s playtime!  Do something that makes you smile and laugh.  Do something different.  Drop the usual routine and surprise yourself.  Take time out to have fun!

Full Moon Blessings to y’all!

NEW MOON and New Year BLESSINGS! January 2016

NEW MOON in Capricorn
Artist: Tamara Phillips

Backtracking – Planning – Persevering - Manifesting

We have a New Moon in Capricorn:
UK                 10 January 01.31am
EU       -           10 January 2.31pm
USA     -           9 January 8.31pm
AUS     -           10 January 12.31pm
NZ        -           10 January 2.31pm

             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.

 Other Energies and influences

We are now in what I call the New Year Window.  This is the month between Jan 1st and the start of Chinese New Year.  I have noticed over the decades that it always takes about a month for the new year energies to settle fully.  And this year has been no exception; in fact there has been a chaotic energy around since January 1st.  World wide politicians continue to make incredibly stupid decisions confirming to me yet again, that we are merely dispensable fodder, so do not be fooled by anyone running for office, they are only interested in their own agenda and the continued desecration of this planet. 
Nearer to home strange things have been happening with folks being very clutzy and accident-prone, dropping things etc.  Items have been disappearing sometimes for a few hours, sometimes for days and then re-appearing etc.

This New Year Window is the ideal time to clear clutter, as the new cannot come into your life unless you make space for it.  Check the back of food cupboards and chuck out all the old stuff.  Clean the fridge.  How long is it since you cleared the attic/basement/garage/yard? It’s time for all the old clutter to go.  There are a lot of good things waiting to come in for you, so make plenty of space for them.

Many like to detox/diet in January. On this side of the pond, this is probably the most dangerous time of year to do it.  Whilst it has been milder than usual for the season, there are so many viruses around that it is not worth it.  (Detoxes and sudden diets lower your immune system initially, which leaves you vulnerable to infection).  By all means dump the junk and clean up your diet but don’t go over the top.  The Spring is a much safer time to detox.

The changes that were rumbling around you last year have to happen now.  You cannot put off those decisions any longer.  The changes you have been thinking about must now happen.  You cannot proceed positively or prosper unless you make these changes.  And this applies to all of us.  Change is scary, it makes you feel tired and makes you want to procrastinate, it makes you feel vulnerable.  If only we could remember that by having the courage to make these changes it makes us so much stronger.  Procrastination and fear weaken us and make us miserable, positive change strengthens us.  Be honest with yourself.  Decide what you want for yourself this year.  Do you want more fear and misery? Well then, make the changes you need to make.

2016 carries the vibration of 9 (2+0+1+6=9). 9 is the number of endings, new beginnings and transformation, which ties in perfectly with the astrology we have been given. 
Interestingly, countries associated with 9 are Syria, Ireland and Iraq.  Let’s include our entire world in our prayers, healings and blessings so that peace may be possible. 
9 is all about wholeness, acting as a Light bearer and mentor for others yet still being student as well as teacher.  It is the number of humanity, compassion, selflessness, being philanthropic, being a material manifestor. 
We need to remember the bigger picture, and do more for humanity this year whilst we pursue our own dreams we need to help all Beings achieve theirs.  Be compassionate and generous this year, whatever is going on, as everyone is dealing with their own demons and battles.

Other Astrology

Mercury is retrograde until the end of the month, so put off making important decisions until the beginning of next month; use this month to think and plan and get all the information you need.  Mercury retrograde gives you time to catch up with outstanding tasks like servicing the car (especially before long journeys), backing up your computer and other devices, fixing that leaking tap and getting rid of what is broken and beyond repair, paperwork – get rid of as much of it as you can.

There is an upcoming lovely alignment between Uranus and Venus who bring us abundance in love and finances. Uranus is the awakener, therefore expect the unexpected, Venus softens any curve balls.  Remember that Mercury is retrograde so the unexpected may just be that.

Also this New Moon forms part of an “unusually potent Grand Cross”.  Grand Crosses can be intense at times especially for the signs they fall in. It is just more layers of the infernal onion, and this time around we are better equipped to deal with whatever old stuff may come up.  We will be able to recognize it for what it is, deal with it, heal it and then it’s gone.

NEW MOON in Capricorn

This is a very positive and potent New Moon.  Practical Cappy gives us the energy to lay the foundations for our plans/dreams/goals for the year ahead. This New Moon is ideal for formulating our new plans and intentions including a new, New Moon Wish List (see below).  This New Moon is also linked to the planet of good luck and opportunities – Jupiter – bringing many blessings our way. So this is a great New Moon to do a New Moon ritual for yourself, all by yourself, as you can create much magick with this special new moon.

Family dynamics will be brought into the new light as old stuff comes up to be healed.  Don’t instantly fall into victim mode like you always have in the past when they press your buttons.  This time stop and think, ‘what is this showing me?’, ‘is this about me or them?’, ‘do I really need to put up with this anymore?’.  Stand strong in who you are; these old dysfunctional patterns are just another layer of what I call the infernal onion, to be healed and then forgotten about.  Family members may be a bit put out when you stand up for yourself – tough - they will just have to get used to it.  You have changed so much over the past year and you are no longer willing to play the roles you have been typecast in.  This year you are writing a new, improved script for yourself, in which you are victor not victim.  So what if you rock the boat?  All of our boats are being rocked right now.  This is the year of being confident in yourself so go for it.

With several planets going retrograde, we are all going back before we can move forwards.  Try not to resist this; it is necessary to do this work to clear your path for the way ahead.  You don’t want to take the same old same old into your bright new future do you?  Take time regularly to go within and listen to the messages being given to you.


Don’t forget to write your New Moon Wish List (especially all you Capricorns!). 
Take plenty of time over this, Mercury is retrograde, He invites you to go back and have a good think about what you really want.

As this is the first New Moon of the year, think carefully about what you wish for/desire to manifest this year. 

Find a quiet space where you cannot be disturbed.
Light a candle and perhaps light some incense.
Choose a beautiful piece of paper and a lovely pen to write with.
Sit quietly and take a few deep breaths to centre you and ground you.
In your mind’s eye see all the things that you want, really look at them see the colours, feel the sensations and sounds.
Then when you are ready, start writing.

Make it a big list, a long list if you want, put everything in it that you want to happen/experience/have this year.  Think big, there are no restrictions (only the ones you impose yourself), so go for it!

Always ask as if it has already arrived, i.e.
“Thank you Universe for xxxxxxxxx.”

Most of all feel excited about it, and have fun with it.

At least once a week, sit and visualise the items on your list, really feel/see/hear/sense as you did when you wrote the above list. 
Remember that your thoughts create your reality and visualization is the magnet for materialization. 
Be confident about who you are and what you want, confidence is also very magnetic and has the attraction factor!

To know how this New Moon may affect you, here’s an insight for your Sun Sign by the wonderful Chani Nicolas (

ARIES / Aries rising
Saturday’s new moon sets your career house humming along some pretty intense tracks. Looks like you are itching to take a bite out of what you are beginning. Looks like you are wanting to make moves that are undeniably deliberate advancements towards inhabiting more of your power in your professional life.  Mercury retrograde messes with some of your more direct plans. There are some things that will have to wait, but that isn’t a bad thing. Take your drive seriously. Take your ambitions into account. Take others up on the help they’d like to hand you and take the next three weeks to revise, rework and strategically lay down the law for future feats to be accomplished.

TAURUS / Taurus rising
Saturday’s new moon has the power to set you on track for a spiritual renewal. One that wants to suss out those that would sell you fake potions, fear-based oracles and doctrines of deceit. Saturday’s new moon has the power to shake up what you consider holy and wholly important. Saturday’s new moon might kick your ass into gear around going for what is truly meaningful to you and letting all other distractions get crossed off your list. Smash the tropes that keep you from knowing yourself.

GEMINI / Gemini rising
Saturday’s new moon and the rest of Mercury’s retrograde madness all happen in a part of your chart that delves into the deep waters of shame, regret, debt and the destructive patterns we all house in our psyches. The human condition demands that we confront our fears or get eaten alive by them. Loss is inevitable. But so is renewal of the spirit if we take up the intense task of rescuing ourselves.  I’m going to suggest that you do so by letting others help you. I’m going to suggest that you compost your shame around what you’ve been given to carry, what you have inherited and what you owe so that you can strategize for regrowth. I’m going to suggest that you look at your debt and make strategic measures to do what you can to manage it. Meanwhile see about making some psychological room around feelings that you have about it so that you don’t discredit yourself in the face of an unfair system. Make it possible to allow others to help you. Don’t be too proud to be receptive towards what wants to support you and your growth.

CANCER / Cancer rising
Saturday’s new moon wants to break down old defenses that make it hard for love to get through to you. Saturday’s new moon wants you to remember that each creative act you commit to is also a relationship that can sustain you with a deep satisfaction. Saturday’s new moon wants to next level your commitment to deconstructing all the walls that keep out what you so desperately deserve: a truly loving embrace that lasts.

LEO / Leo rising
Saturday’s new moon spurs sentiments at work or in regards to the projects that you are hard at work on (workout regimes included). A desire to strive for more might be sneaking up on you. A surge in your appetite for bargaining power, a need to transform and renew your dedication to the job or a realization that you have outgrown your surroundings and are simply craving more might be dawning on you. You’ve got to give yourself room to expand, room to review and room for more of you in all that you do at work and beyond.

VIRGO / Virgo rising
Saturday’s new moon begins a new phase of your romantic journey, your creative path and/or any newfound modes of self-expression you’ve stumbled upon. You have a deep well to draw from right now. You’ve got creative callings. You’ve got epic amounts of love to share with others. You’ve got more than one old romantic situation to salvage, seal up or set right. You’ve got a lot of review to do in terms of the kiddos in your life and how you find your way of working through issues with them.  If you can carve out some new moon intention setting time make it rich with incantations for healing your heart and helping you find a way to play everyday.

LIBRA / Libra rising
Give yourself the love you seek.  Notice what happens to you when you try to acquire outside validation. Notice what happens to your energy when you need another or many others to tell you that you are enough. Notice how much self worth can be derived from doing the best job possible right now. That’s where your power is this week and for the next few. Use it.  Saturday’s new moon occurs in your 4th house of home, family and foundation. It’s an invitation to root down. It’s an invitation to uproot the weeds that strangle diversity. It’s an invitation to revitalize the soil that you build your life upon. Compost your stories of not belonging, of not having a home, and of not knowing where to be. Dig down until you find warmth. Re-plant yourself, re-parent yourself, and re-name yourself found.

SCORPIO / Scorpio rising
Saturday’s new moon is an invitation to purge your daily duties of all that doesn’t count for much. The time consuming little escapades might need to get cut from the calendar so that more important matters can be front and center. Get to your big tasks, your big ideas and the big conversations that you need to have. With Mercury mostly retrograde through this part of your chart it’s not that all your conversations and ideas will be made immediately manifest; it’s just that clearing room for them will help you review, rework and edit them into perfection and a final product that you are proud of come the end of January.

SAGITTARIUS / Sagittarius rising
Saturday’s new moon is an invitation to renew your self-respect. Saturday’s new moon is an invitation to mine your resources for the gold that lies there. Saturday’s new moon may just reveal a plan for financial windfalls that occur as a byproduct of believing in yourself. If the money doesn’t come that easy it doesn’t mean you haven’t done it right or that you have done anything wrong. That’s just new age, aggressively positive, capitalist propaganda. Since Mercury is retrograde (mostly) through your 2nd house of finances, some of the cash flow could go a little astray, but it’s only momentary. Keep your eye on the work that you can do around self-value and self-appreciation through cultivating all your skills and reviewing your business strategies.

CAPRICORN / Capricorn rising
Saturday’s new moon in Capricorn asks you to excavate your powers of self-perception. See yourself. Strip down. Sit still. Settle in. Let renewal be your religion. Give yourself the freedom that you haven’t felt worthy of having. Give yourself the gift of a complete makeover. Give yourself some room to move because it looks like you could be shifting your home base, allowing your internal one to reinvent itself or being charged with the task of trying to ground while it’s shifting beneath your feet. The good news there is that it hopefully keeps you feeling stimulated and excited on a fundamental level.

AQUARIUS / Aquarius rising
Sometimes little scuffles are just our invitation inward. Sometimes minor irritations just get us to pause long enough to root around for the pebble in our shoe. This more aptly describes the majority of Mercury’s retrograde for you, though by the end of the month you may have located something more like a boulder to dislodge from an inconvenient location. Saturday’s new moon is an opening that may help you to make the most of this inward gazing. Make a ritual out of napping. Make a ritual out of refreshing yourself and resetting your body, mind and spirit. Make a ritual out of taking the day off to let yourself decompress and, if in the process you come up against memories, feelings and facts long repressed, remember that it’s part of the process and not part of the problem.

PISCES / Pisces rising
With Mercury beginning its retrograde in a part of your chart that deals with aspects of our selves that tend towards self-destruction, Tuesday may evoke a knee-jerk response in you that reveals such tendencies. It’s a quick transit so downplay any internal drama by listening to and loving yourself through it.  The rest of the retrograde is spent retracing your steps through your 11th house in an attempt to understand your relationships with friends, allies and your place in the group on a deeper level. This is also the place that Saturday’s new moon initiates and renews. You may be reorganizing how you handle your social life. With a major career commitment up this week, there could be a couple of reasons why you need to pay deeper attention to who is really down for you and who might be draining your resources.

The past few years have knocked the stuffing out of some folks.  Now it is time to rebuild yourself and your life.  It’s time to stop beating yourself up, stop trying so hard, stop worrying so much – especially about others.  It’s time to focus on you. 

- What do you need to do in order to manifest your new Wish List/dreams/goals?
- What do you need to let go of in order to achieve this?
- What do you need to learn in order to manifest them?
- Who do you need to meet/connect with or collaborate with?

- What do you need to do to feel well, confident and happy?
- What must change in order for you to feel well, confident and happy?

- What needs to change regarding the way you work and are of service in our world?
- What now feels outdated and is not a match for you any more?
- What makes you feel heavy rather than excited about your working day?

Trust your gut when making decisions about anything or anyone this year.  The body never lies, so trust that inner guru and don’t override any contractions or twinges you feel in your Solar Plexus, or warning bells, they are there for a reason.  Also check how your energy feels in relation to the situation, does it make your energy drop or do you feel excited and positive?

Remember that Capricorn is the goat/ram, and as Isha Lerner described it, 
“Capricorn connects us to the mountaintop of our dreams, yet at the same time asks us to build a constitution of perseverance.”  
So persevere this year and be confident like the sure-footed goat and climb that mountaintop to your dream. 

Our Wood SHEEP spray mist can help you, as it contains the energies of the Goat/Ram as well as the wood Sheep which all help to move us forward. 

Sheep cannot go backwards or sideways, they can only go forwards. This Spray Mist brings us slow and steady progress with fun along the way. New friendships and collaborations come together now and existing ones deepen.  The Goat aspect 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 aspect 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). 
This Spray Mist prepares you for the coming Chinese New Year and provides solid support when the going gets tough over the months ahead.  This spray mist helps you to build a strong physical and spiritual foundation for the year ahead.
