A Black Moon, Two Eclipses & The Great Benefic? Wow, May is going to be interesting…

Hi Everyone

I hope you haven’t made too many plans for the weekend! We are in for a bumper dose of cosmic energy as Eclipse season hits us. 

On April 30th we will have a SOLAR Eclipse. A solar eclipse can only take place at the phase of new moon, when the moon passes directly between the Sun and Earth and its shadows, also known as its umbra, falls upon Earth’s surface. Just before and during sunset, the Moon will cover a part of the sun causing a partial eclipse. This new moon is also called a BLACK MOON (the second new moon in the same calendar month). It will also mark the end of Ramadan for Muslims which means that their month-long period of fasting has come to an end. The celebration of Eid will be on May 1 or May 2, depending on where you are in the world and festivities will begin after the local sighting of the crescent, slightly illuminated moon. 

Astrologically speaking, experts are hinting that this eclipse is a peak point in our collective destiny and that shocks and surprises involving politicians/global figures will shape us all going forward. I have my eye on the British Royal family:-) 

Mid-month we will have another eclipse. This time a TOTAL LUNAR Eclipse (May 15/16th). This is a big deal and definitely one of the peak points of this year! We can feel this eclipse energy up to a month before and up to 6 months later. This particular eclipse is happening in the sign of SCORPIO. There is always intensity at any full moon but this Scorpio flavor is emotional and supercharged. Scorpio will bring to light dirty laundry, secrets, and dark and hidden matters which are likely to play out on the public stage courtesy of the full moon.  I plan to look at what I can RELEASE that is toxic in my life as well as the shadow matters that I need to air.  

Another thing to bear in mind is that from May 11th Jupiter will move into Aries. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and a Cardinal Sign. This is another strong energy that I think we are going to feel because Jupiter- also known as The Great Benefic (/bɪˈnɛfɪk/) – will always bring EXPANSION and PERSONAL GROWTH.

**Here’s a fun exercise for you to do**: Jupiter has a 12-year cycle so it moved into Aries in June 2010. Look back at your life and into your old journals if possible. What was happening around June 2010? Which life areas were booming/changing/expanding at this time?  This is likely to be the same life area that will be expanding again this time around. You should also look at which HOUSE in your chart is likely to be most affected by this energy. You can do this by looking at your specific birth chart. If like me, you have your Sun/Moon/Ascendant in Aries then this should be a time of huge opportunity and upward momentum. Also remember to take action (Aries is all about action) on things you want to look back at in 12 years’ time and say Yes, that’s what I dreamed-in and worked on in a big way in May 2022!

Friends, we are in for a bumper ride. I am sending you love and I hope that your life is full of unexpected wonder! Astrology is not an exact science but it sure helps to know what energies are at play doesn’t it? Besides, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US President said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it”.

Please let me know how you feel about eclipses and share any interesting rituals, stories, and facts with me.

Numerology of 2022 – Things are looking up!

Everyone eagerly awaits the new year because it represents a fresh start. Another chance to achieve our goals and pursue new opportunities. 

I am quite interested in numbers, as you know – being a tax accountant and all. So I looked into the Numerology of 2022.  Numerology is a practice based on the idea that numbers 1 to 9 have spiritual and symbolic meaning. Each year has a specific theme/flavor. The way we calculate this number is pretty simple. We simply add up all the digits for the year: 2+0+2+2 = 6. That is how to reach the Universal Number, which is 6 for 2022.  

2021 had a Universal Number of 5 and the energy kept us “off-balance”. For many people, it felt like one step forward, two steps back. If this resonates with you, then you are not alone.

But 6 is a pretty good number for 2022. Even in terms of Mayan astrology, the number 6 is the number of “ultimate stability”.

The repetitions of the number 2 make it quite special as 2’s are recognized as “angel numbers and with three of them in this year’s number, we can count on their help. So, talk to your angels this year. I’ve been having some heart to hearts with my angels over the holidays. They are always on standby to listen and sometimes that’s all we need. 

In Numerology 2 is also known as the number of balance. It is often seen as the symbol of the peacekeeper, signifying all things rooted in unity. So we are encouraged to look at the areas in our life where we lack peace of mind. That’s where our focus and energy should be. It is also symbolic of family, relationships, partnerships, community. So we also need to look at where we are off-balance in this respect and take action. 

I picked a card from my Crystal deck this morning to see if there were any other messages for us as we step into the new year:

My sentiments exactly!

Things are looking up, friends. We are rising from the ashes and with the Universal Number of 6 on our side, I am excited to see what 2022 will bring.

Thank you for all your love during 2021. I’ll be back in the new year with some fresh new sparkle,

Love,

P.S. Now might also be a good time to put those pesky Mercury Retrogrades into your diary. Expect communication breakdowns, travel issues, and technological issues. Be mindful of what is being said (and what you say), to ensure that the right sentiments are being articulated. And, back-up information on computers or electronic devices. We’ve got this!

Lunar Eclipse on May 26th 2021 = BIG Changes

Hello Sunshines

We are just hours away from the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius (May 26, 2021) and we will be able to see the Blood Flower Supermoon in all its glory.

In Western Astrology, Lunar Eclipses are a powerful time. They bring big CHANGE often on a global level. It’s also the first day of a new Trecena within the Mayan count of days. The Trecena of Tijax.

I’m excited. 

The sign of Sagittarius and the nawal of Tijax share a similar energy, that of the Holy Warrior.

If there are some big changes in the air (and boy have I been feeling this for months as far as the planet in general goes), then I say let’s learn to adapt and harness the higher vibrational cosmic energy to support the NEW.

On a more personal level, it’s always a good idea to PIVOT/CHANGE DIRECTION/U-TURN as we grow, evolve and expand our consciousness. This is the time!

It’s an opportunity when we can alter and shift our DESTINY/FATE/LIFE PATH in a major way. Here’s the thing, friends, the change is here. It WILL happen. The question is only how willing you are going to be to flow with that which is aligning to your new vibration?

Will you resist OR will you flow? Will you stay where you are or will go to where you are being directed?

I plan to enjoy some delightful Sativa flower and create an outdoor altar for Lady Luna. I will thank my Guides for their support and flow with the big changes coming my way. My preview looks grand!

Happy Blood Flower Super Moon Gazing,

Cara, Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

P.S. Can I make a prediction? Donald Trump’s star is going to keep rising. Do some Googling and find out when he was born. I will give you a hint *you will find the word “eclipse” somewhere in there.
