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.

NEW Moon Challenge

Hey Everyone

I know that I’ve told you about my full moon rituals before but hey, what about new moons? They’re special too and we have a fabulous one on Wednesday October 6, 2021 in the sign of Libra.

New Moons are usually a day of reflection and visualization. A monthly date-night with our own imaginations. I plan to let my date dress up and go to town! I’ve already set up a little station with paper, magazines, a gluestick and some scissors. We’re going old-school babyyyy.

Now here’s something exciting that I didn’t know before:

New moons mark the start of a chapter that will end when there is a corresponding FULL MOON in the same sign 6 months later. In this case, April 16, 2022. So I have a challenge for you. Spend some time journalling under the new moon and then look at those notes again around April 16, 2022. It will be interesting to see what shows up for you. Full moons have a way of illuminating key areas, and my guess is that your case will be no different.

Challenge accepted?

Before I run off, please be warned that Mercury is still retrograde and that this can cause miscommunication + issues with technology/mechanics and at the time of this new moon, this energy will be amplified. It’s nothing to worry about, just something to remember so that when things go belly-up (like the Facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp blackout on Monday) you find ways to ground yourself.

I have faith in you. Happy new moon, friends!

Love,

Once in a BLUE MOON

Hey Moon Lovers

I hope you are ready for some one-of-a-kind blue moon magic because this August 22, 2021 moon is a special one. This is the second full moon in a row rising in the sign of Aquarius – which means double the light (illuminations, reveals, conclusions, missing pieces) + double the opportunity. 

This moon is also known as the Sturgeon Moon. Legend has it that this name came about because the giant Sturgeon Fish were plentiful at this point in summer and therefore easiest to catch.That is what this moon is all about : Catching those BIG FISH.

Here are my top tips on using the energy of this moon:

  1. Get creative. With this moon rising in the sign of Aquarius, your creative juices are going to be pumping. The need for self-expression will be a theme. Journal, cook, paint, write. Find ways to channel that bubbling energy.
  2. Think of your “big fish”. What are your biggest goals? What have you been working on that you need to finish with a bang? We are manifesting at a much more rapid rate than ever before with the amount of high-frequency light that is currently pouring onto our planet. Don’t sleep on this one. Now is the time to catch those big fish.
  3. Rest. I can’t emphasize this enough. You may feel directionless and overwhelmed by all the energies at play. Ground yourself. Let the light of the full moon show you the best routes/maps/paths while you rest. (I plan to use a CBD strain of cannabis and meditation).

That’s it, friends. I wish you a wonderful weekend and lots of LIGHT,
