The Month of the Wood Pig


Yesterday we entered the Yin Wood Pig brings us to a more harmonious month as we have the flow of elements from the Pig being a Water animal to the Wood in both the month and year heavenly stem then to the fire, fed by the strong water fed wood element. This brings a nice elemental balance however with the Pig being a travel star, it’s a month that can shake things up and get us moving. Water wants to flow and that’s what it will be doing this month, with all that wood and fire (Horse) around.

Water element relates to our kidney, bone and reproductive health. This means we need to take more care of these areas during this month as well as next month in the Rat, also a water animal. The kidneys need plenty of rest as they are considered the storehouse of our vital life force (qi). With the wood and fire elements present this month, we need to maintain our energy as the Water element can become exhausted, meaning we can easily “burn out”.

Metal element people (those born on a metal day) need to take more care than most this month with the elemental dynamic. It will be easy for metal people to become energetically drained without the earth element present or the metal element to support them. Wood people especially will have a better month with stronger energy than usual. Wood especially as the plant need both water and sun (fire) to thrive.

This means it is a great time to support the liver with a detox, given that the Wood element governs the Liver. Emotions are governed by the Liver so can show up quite strong this month in particular. Being Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s also the season of the Wood element (governing the Liver), meaning people are generally much mover emotional. This often naturally correlates with the wind that spring brings moving into Summer.

It’s important now to remain “earthed” with such dynamics at play…meaning we need to stay grounded among all this change. The Pig is an animal of great change and can be unsettling for many. This is also why rest is important this month as well as good nourishment from food. Hydrating and salty foods will help maintain physical balance this month. By salty, I mean naturally salty and not foods that contain iodised salt which also contains artery hardening aluminium. Avoid that (iodised salt) at all costs. You can obtain iodine naturally in other ways.

So this month, be sure to look after yourself. It is a creative month and you are going to need all that energy.

Spring Equinox & The New Moon in Libra

Libra New Moon

This is a time of New beginnings in the Southern Hemisphere and universally in the way of “relationships”. The Libra New Moon also suggests that we find balance and particularly relates to justice. So at this time we begin to look closer and focus more upon finding balance in new ways.

This Libra New Moon takes place on our Spring equinox in the Southern Hemisphere, aligned with the natural forces of new beginnings. This is a great omen for relationships to reach new levels of understanding and equality, which are the keys to balance and harmony.

This is an auspicious time to begin putting in place new ways of bringing more harmonious flow into our relationships with others, particularly partnerships of any kind. Consideration and insight will grow from being able to share one another’s varying perspectives and finding common ground upon which to relate.

The Spring Equinox is also a time of magnetic energy changing direction. This means that our new insights at this time will bring great changes and shifts as our life begins to move once again outwardly in growth with new beginnings as nature comes to blossom. It’s time now for our relationships to blossom, along with those areas of our lives that we are passionate about restoring the balance and order (justice) to.

Being the Year of the Wood Horse which is the greatest “Yang” animal of the Chinese Zodiac, it is also a beautiful sign of flowering to come over the next six months until we arrive to the Yin Wood Goat in February next year. Over the last six months in the Southern hemisphere we have been gathering our resources, knowledge, wisdom and strength so that now we may begin to grow, moving forward with power and speed like the Horse itself.

The Spring Equinox brings out our creativity and being aligned with the New Moon in Libra, it foretells a beautiful time ahead romantically, be it in relationships already committed, or the openness of relating to others in a platonic way. Either way, we have a great harmony now and ahead of us in our experiences and interactions with the other world, as it is a time of restoring balance.

And as the Universe works with the Heavens to restore balance and harmony, energy begins to flow better as our missing pieces come to light for our awareness to enhance our ability to restore a sense and reality of completeness. Like the Yin and Yang, this is a time where our knowledge of opposing forces brings wisdom and strength to our ability to gain insight and understanding from them that better our lives.

Month of the Yang Metal Horse



This month is a double Horse given we are in the year of the Horse. This means there is strong “fire” energy. Fire brings us a very creative spirit to play with and enjoy while also calling for us to have the wisdom to remain balanced with sufficient rest to recharge and not “burn” out. The fire element governs the heart, spirit and shen (seat of consciousness), stirring up our dreams at night. The heart-mind (shen) energetic balance is revealed in this month, as it’s state is illuminated so that we may see any areas that need attention. It governs the emotional realm, meaning if we are not fulfilled within our hearts, this month will make it difficult to sleep at night or stir some unsettled dreams.

The best way to get the most out of this high energy month is to learn the art of “calm”. To simply commit to enjoying yourself through pursuits of personal value. Be it music, cooking, study or business, this month places importance on personal fulfillment. If this is not taken care of, then our energy can become significantly depleted, effecting the nervous system (brain) and mental faculties, governed by the fire element. So, you may be wondering how else to balance out the Fire dominance this month. Well, elementally, water can become steamed out and dissipate in time of extreme fire presence, so restoring our reserves by supporting our kidneys (water organs) is essential. This means a sufficient supply of natural salts nutritionally to purify and strengthen, fluid to filter and lubricate and rest to replenish.

Fire element burns to ashes, becoming earth, meaning we can balance ourselves by “earthing” ourselves this month. Being grounded (practical, paced, sensible, realistic, physical and well fed) will keep the excess fire energy somewhere to go, a channel and direction. Being the Yang Metal Horse, this month can be seen as a great opportunity to create new forms as there is a melting made possible, where once fixed structures now becomes malleable, soft and able to take on new meaning, shape and form. This can be in any area of life, depending on what the “Metal” element represents to you personally (in your chart). For Wood people, their personal power and for women, relationships can be reformed, reinvented and given new life. This can mean a new definition of self for many wood people.

For fire (day sign) element people, metal element represents “money” and business. This can mean a new opportunity at work or a better financial plan, or simply that your money is on the move this month (put to use, invested). For Earth element people, Metal element represents “creativity”. This can indicate  a time of stepping out into the light and giving birth to new ideas, structures or plans that help initiate something fresh and useful (earth people like being useful:). For metal people, this month is “active”. There is likely to be a full social calender for metal people with lots of networking opportunities. This is a month of personal transformation and development for metal people. Their life is likely to take on new meaning and direction in June.

For water people, the strong fire can be draining, but metal is also present to offer support. So the dynamic this month is a delicate balance of self preservation while giving as you do so well. While nurturing others this month, you will find energy in learning new things, study and rest. It will be particularly important for you to have some alone and down time this month, to prevent exhaustion. Health will also be a key area of focus for water people who can be depleted of energy if there is insufficient nutritional replenishment.

Overall, this month offers “romance” and focus on relationships as the Horse is known as a romance animal. There is also the presence of a clash, given we are in the yang Wood Horse, opposite to yang metal. This means there will  be some level of disharmony, that requires our attention. This indicates a very strong need to SLOW DOWN. For everyone. Metal “cuts” wood element, so if, in the fast pace of fire, we become reckless and excited, we can injure ourselves (wood governs the limbs). It also means we need to watch the health of our Liver, by caring for ourselves emotionally and nutritionally. The Liver loves GREEN, so we need to eat plenty of them this month, to stay strong, centred and emotionally fit. This will enable us to prevent becomes unsettled and exhausted by the energetic dynamic present, influencing us this month.

Month of the Earth Snake

Snake month

In the year of the Wood Horse, this month of the Earth Snake brings us a double fire energy with both the Horse and Snake being fire animals. This means our nerves can become frayed, as we can become burnt out energetically. Although we here in the Southern Hemisphere have the cold upon us as Autumn turns to Winter…we must remember that the heavenly bodies have impact just as much as the Earthly environmental influences and elements. And so, in writing this months forecast, I would like to first reflect upon the Spiritual enormity of the eclipse month just passed. I was grateful to share this Full Moon eclipse being the first I was ever fully able to witness. Last month brought many things to surface in the emotional realm, bringing recognition to areas that needed closure, to help us move forward with life.

This month, in the Chinese month of the Earth Snake, we have many matters of the heart arise for illumination. It is a highly spiritual month again, highlighting the emotional realm and bringing us the need for a delicate balancing act. It is a month where the art of living becomes an important aspect of our own self determination. We must now see that we are the makers and creators of our own lives and it’s unfolding. We may shape and mold our lives in many many difference ways and forms, so this months challenge is to choose our creative expression wisely, from the heart.

This month’s balancing element is Earth. Although personally this element may not be favourable for those that are already quite strong in their earth energy…overall, we will require gentle grounding and consideration to the benefits of slowing down this month. Being predominantly ruled by the Taurean sun, May brings us to focus upon our earthly needs, which is perfect in this time where we transit through not only the fire animal month of the Snake, but also the Year of the Wood Horse. So we have double Fire! This means we must “Earth” ourselves. We need to remain grounded, as we have come to learn from last months eclipse.

It’s time now to focus simply upon our health foundations. These are the key foundations of our lives and as we transit through a demanding time spiritually and energetically, it’s important to keep solid on our nutrition, our lifestyle, fitness and keep life as simple as possible, to avoid draining our reserves to the point of pain and weakness. No matter what, this month calls for us to be gentle, move slowly and take care to be kind to ourselves. So do take care. For if you do, this will be one of the most colourful, heart warming and beautiful spiritual months you come by.


The Year of the Water Snake 2013

A New Astrological cycle

New Moon Aries Leah Jade

This New Moon in Aries is the first of the new Western Astrological year (zodiac cycle). After the Equinox on the 21st of March, energy began to shift into the opposite direction, being inward for the southern hemisphere and outward for the northern. In this transformational time we see the pendulum sway bringing life once more into balance. It’s a time of new beginnings and letting go, so that we may continue to receive light as the leaves fall around us. The Aries new moon ignites our passion from the core, shining a light from within as all around us is dark in the absence of the sun’s reflection when the moon conjuncts (joins) it, hiding from us at night. This darkness helps us reflect, see clearly with our heart, as distractions fall away…the direction of where we seek to go to now from this new moment.

The new Aries moon cautions against moving too fast, as our energy is high with inspiration and vision to initiate and lead the way into uncharted ventures. Akin to the fool card of the major arcana, this time can bring great adventure, on the bright side but on the dark side, make us “foolish” in the act of not thinking before doing (as Aries often do). So we must weigh things up in our heart intuitively before taking that leap into the unknown at this time. The new moon in Aries also brings us to to appreciate “new life” in all it’s forms. From the birth of a new baby to the germination of seedlings of the earth. This is a significant time to reflect upon the powers that surround such miracles and to appreciate all that has influence over new life.

This Aries new moon brings us a time that calls for us to break new ground with our sheer determination, from the dark places of fire and passion within in order to light up the world around us. It’s time to shine, not be afraid, speak up, open up and take charge of our lives. This is the time more than any other to lead our own way and fear not…for fear is the force that ties us down, leading us away from the adventures of the soul we were intended and designed to experience on this earth. Consider what this means for you and run with the wind that ignites your fire within.

New Moon in Pisces

pisces new moon

The upcoming New Moon at 10 degrees of Pisces is on Saturday the 1st of March. The Pisces New Moon leads us into the soul dimension, allowing for the deep exploration of the spiritual inner life. Conjunct a stellium (cluster of planets) with Sun, Chiron and Neptune…all in the watery sign of Pisces, this moon phase brings forth new seeds of inspiration, with powerful awakenings that bring the subconscious life to the conscious. This new Pisces moon allows for a stronger connection between all aspects of the self, opening a door between the spiritual and manifest.

Pisces is a fluid sign, like a fish, rarely fixing itself to anything, swimming with the currents of life and able to see the many facets of any situation. The new moon in this sign can offer a deep well in which we may tap into untouched aspects of ourselves that have great beauty and wisdom within them.

The sign of oneness, the very nature of Pisces is about serving the greater good. On the other hand, Pisces can get lost in others like its fellow water signs, able to feel great compassion for those around them.

Feelers, that find it a challenge to switch off, Pisces often go to great lengths to do so. The important thing here is to make sure those things used to help in switching off, are healthy and not detrimental to wellbeing. Dreams & wonder offer great insight at this time. Listen to the hidden messages during this moon phase…and feel the answers to any questions you may have.

New Moon Meditation


As we enter 2014 we reach the greatest heights of spirituality in the point of the heavens where the heart is central to all things. With the New Moon in Capricorn sending us on our way through into a new year, there is an auspicious energy of clarity and purity which transforms our life potentials and expands our reach to ever greater distances, endless and limitless in truth. Capricorn is the Western sign crowning the greatest point of the zodiac wheel in the heavens, where the Horse is the Eastern pinnacle of the heavens, so we have a significant energetic synchronicity and affinity which foretells a time of great accomplishment where all things reach a peak flowering in the expression of life.

How then can we take the reins to make this the best year for our own growth and potential, to evolve in a way that serves the highest good? We must look ahead, to use this powerful vision, in being at the greatest heights in such a time. This new moon and new year give us boundless opportunities to manifest our heart’s callings. This year, the spiritual meets the physical in the number 7, numerically present in the combination of 2 + 0 + 1 + 4. So in this new moon on New Year’s eve, may you be aware of the powerfully potent potential for all of your intentions to breathe life into the world around you and all threads that weave the fabric of your life.

This New Moon is a stunning time to meditate on our journey. To tune in deeply to the energy present at this time, imagine your bare feet on the ground as you stand at the top of a mountain. What is your message as you speak your truth to those before you here? Feel yourself grounded in your purpose here…and stand for a moment to become one with this mission. As you imagine yourself standing there, pause for a moment to witness the feeling of your heart beating. Let all else fade away and just listen to it’s rhythm. Be calm in this moment and take your breathe with you as you follow your heat beat. Imagine opening your arms wide, to show the world your heart.

Feel your shoulders back as you bare your love for life and share that gift with those who stand before you. Know that in opening up in this moment…inspires others to be just as brave. Bring your shoulders back and feel all of your body relax in an open state, feeding from the light that pours into your soul. Look up and around, as the sun begins to set. Feel it gently warming your skin on it’s way down, as you follow it slowly down the mountain back to the earth below. As you return to the night below, imagine the feeling of pure peace…in knowing exactly where you are going in this life time. As this is the gift of this New Moon in Capricorn before we soon enter the Year of the Horse ahead.

Bored…I don’t know the meaning of the word! :) I was asked one day, when I was at my clinic reception by a lady who assumed that was my “job”, If I get bored. I was blown away at this incredible assumption. Something I am glad to say I refrain from doing for the very reason that I know how wrong we can be in our judgement of people in brief meeting.

Astrologically the year of the Wood Horse coming in 2014, foretells a strong theme of “Romance & Relationships”. It will be a year of heightened sensitivity emotionally, spiritually and physically in universal terms. The year brings forth the return of the arts, the spiritual revolution…a beginning of the return to the age of renaissance that lies ahead, associated with the Astrological influence of the fire cycle we now enter. This coming Wood Horse offers freedom to draw upon natural intended vision. Governing the South direction of any universal centre, the sign of the Horse has strong potential to bring fortunate blessings to the South seated, facing or positioned during this year. This is because of the energy grid transiting through this magnetic compass pull universally through 2014.

With the feminine wood element crowning the centre of universal life force, we see the young women both flourish and tested in 2014. If unstable, they will fall vulnerable to their blindness, pray to their wild adventures, depleting of their strength. The yin wood element dominating the year, foretells a time of young women exploring their freedom in the unknown. Young women should caution against making impulsive choices during this year to preserve their balance and strength. It is a vulnerable time for maturing women without strong spiritual poise. Instead it is a time that one can grow from developing their creative instincts. Yin Wood also governs the Liver and ethereal soul, making it a year to dedicate our attention to the inner most passions and aspiration, to avoid distractions taking us from our true higher calling. It’s a year to define our gift and purpose, so as to keep us alive, at peace with the knowing of the legacy we seek to create.

The Liver is important this year, as we enter a strong fire animal, the greatest Yang sign of the Horse. This can deplete and exhaust Wood element in the body, being the Liver. It can result in burn out, emotional instability and over stimulation, with mental imbalance, from too little rest and reflection. The world transits through it’s flowering time at it’s peak of the life cycle. We must remember that the outer world of loud noise can be empty, as energy expands, like a bubble almost bursting. This year will be a time that calls for quiet contemplation, rather than allowing facades to dishearten and fool us, in comparing and forgetting the bigger purpose and potential for the pendulum of nature and universal law to swing in it’s opposite extreme.

We must hold onto our balance in remembering clearly in our heart, mind, spirit and soul, that what seems light is also dark, like our every day. We see only one side at a time, but we must not forget the opposite exists always some place else, and will reveal itself in it’s natural time, with the cycles of nature. People are both cold and hot, at different times in different places. We all hold all elements within, the same organs and functions, therefore we all fell all emotions that these organs evoke. The heart, joy and sadness. The lungs, difficulty letting go, sometimes low, but with great depth and endurance, like metal. The kidneys, our blood, dominating in moments of fear…releasing adrenaline to protect like the mother of a child, ever nurturing, there behind us all the way. Our very life support. This year they are weakened by the adrenaline released in the fire sign. Dissipating essence into the heat, as steam becomes mist, our reserve, empty.

The Horse gives strength to earth, leading us into a more natural existence, awakening and enlightening humanity to the return of food as the best medicine. The stomach will knot with worry as we forget to look within, in a time of great transformation. We will be awakened to the connection of thoughts and emotions over the body and it’s every function or dysfunction. No longer will people doubt the power of colours and vibration as their influence is revealed. Colour therapists will be called upon to educate and heal, musicians will be called upon to perform their magic to evoke spiritual evolution and healing love, for the purpose of creating connectedness and compassion for our fellow species, sharing this life time and the next. We will look further ahead with greater consciousness of our footprint, and feel more strongly about our power to create a worthwhile experience and contribution to the world.

This Wood Horse holds joy for us to open our heart and eyes to, to give forth to those without it. We have a great opportunity now in this year to come, to create powerful transformation as a fire burns to ashes to form new ground, to walk upon and shape a whole new world. From the Snake we shed our dead, to the Horse we rise again. As a phoenix bird on the mountain top, we enter the beginning of a new direction. One that draws us to more solid ground to build our lives upon. A time is coming that empowers us to savour the gifts and awaken to the immortal gift we hold. So vibrant and innocent we live. In this time of divine, we return to spiritual devotion. We draw upon our lives to make strong our powers of relinquishing ties that bind. It’s a new cyclic transition through which we discover freedom in detaching from assumptions, from being mislead from prejudice and rigidity. We look ahead to a time of softening, surrendering to the unknown, that holds unlimited wisdom and potential.

The stars are moving us in a revolutionary time where knowledge becomes our God, governing spontaneous changes for growth. The age we are in is a period of endings and new beginnings. From here on we learn powerful truths that help us in life. Abundant wisdom is made accessible to all. No child or person need suffer from the poverty of wisdom, learning and opportunity. The world is made richer is it’s transparency, and the human ability to be honoured with gratitude for their gifts.

We now have the opportunity to live more balanced, in tune with our true nature, that was intended the freedom to move, dance and interact more presently with our fellow earth dwellers. It is in this coming age that we stand before now, that we discover the power of each moment as the gateway to the next. We will learn to live artistically, in a manner that we aim to live at all times, with humility and selflessness…for the purpose of inner harmony. We shall discard what we are told until we know for certain. As we cannot place our understanding in others hands, for this is our journey. Young men will lead the way in this cycle we enter, with greater understanding from both the lessons passed on from generations gone, to the shared observations from the gentle way of the woman. Men grow to embody more contemplative qualities that further humanity with advancing solutions for accomplishments, learning and sustaining longevity of life. We begin now to enter this age where planets align to support us in learning the power of creation.

Music will become more understood as essential to our evolutionary potential. We gain greater insight into the essential nature of sound in survival. We grow to see how much our words can do, to ourselves and others. We become more conscious with this wisdom, more gentle with our language and voice. Babies will be seen in new light, as a flower not yet open, but dependant on every sound as it’s foundation of forming relationships with the world.

Women will use song and sound in pregnancy to teach their child how to enjoy the movement of life and innately know the emotions of voices through feeling and expressions of movement in self and others.

Women will be guided in how to create the best possible environment for their children’s development, through the use of colour, space, objects smell and perspectives shared, with insights of learnings they have to give.

Humanity will become more adept at creating their own destiny and pathway to spiritual fulfilment and education more attainable. Communication far clearer and more understood for it’s power over all aspects of our lives. Psychology will be more deeply instilled in the youth as an essential guide to understanding human behaviour and our role in the quality of our relationships.

People shall develop more reflective abilities, so as to learn from the past and understand their roles in creating the circumstances in which they live.


If sleeping in the South, working, living or entering the home in the south direction of a building, city or the globe (Australia & South America) you will be blessed this year as with those occupying the North direction (part of the world / living space). Those facing the North or South this year, predominately, will progress in their endeavours and excel in their pursuits. As someone who is entering their first favourable luck pillar (in Chinese Astrology) transiting through both of their favourable elements (fire and water), living in a South facing home with a business in a North facing building, in the North of the city, in the South of the globe…I feel blessed to bring you this forecast…for this is my time of strength. Hence I write to my hearts true, unyielding and fearless Lioness content (as a Leo).

And with this foundation, I intend to share the wisdom from which I have grown and evolved. It is with this ancient knowledge that I have so confidently moved in the very clear direction of my highest purpose, to empower my fellow travellers with the grace of living in harmony with the forces of mother earth and father heaven (the Grand Organised Design), Universal Laws and the land that sustains our very breath. I call this mission, the Soul Compass. A purposeful calling to source the keys to limitless fulfilment, joy, poise and balance. From the Transformational year of the Snake of 2013, shedding our past, freeing us of ties to illusions and grief, this coming year is the flowering in which we unveil the gifts within. In this time we connect with those that are there to guide us, drive us and push us to our ultimate destiny.

In the South west of the compass, the globe and foundation of living, we have great potential, activated so as to grow in rapid ways. Those that occupy this direction, face it, live or work in it, from the sector of the building to the area of the city, the city of the country or the country in the globe, this coming year will bring achievement, learning and development in the direction of your greatest yearning and drive. Success will be born for those that dwell in this direction of the environment this coming year.

Eastern Hemisphere Unit 1

The two animal signs most influenced by the Horse…

The Wood Horse brings change for the Rat people, moving them to make the bigger choices in life, to change what no longer brings fulfilment and balance. It is time for Rat people to learn a new way of seeing and living. Those born in the Rat year will need to bring closure to deep seated patterns, psychological and learned, to make changes for the greater purpose of evolution and growth. Those born in the Rat month from after the first week of December to the first week of January, will experience significant foundational uprooting. This year brings physical challenges to stay centred and clear. It’s time to push through with all reserves, to develop strength and guide others through the same journey. It’s a time to learn the wisdom to develop the power to lead others through such times.

This year brings people born in a Rat year, month, day or hour (11pm-1am), turmoil, demands and yet equal rewards and worthwhile attainment to the energy devoted.

For the Goats on the other hand, we see a pleasant time of harmonious experience. This Wood Horse foretells love, connections, relationship fulfilment, romance and a unity with life in certain forms. The Goat year born will draw upon their resources, strengths, past lessons and gifts to find purpose and develop a sense of identity. Goat month born, from the first week of July to the first week of August, find space and freedom to to develop their own identity outside of their familial roots and social ties. Those born on the day of the Goat will find sincere companionship and connection with others. This means it will be a significant year for relationship evolution.

Those occupying Northwest need to caution against struggles this year, as the most challenging Astrological energy / influence / force governs this direction in 2014. Avoid stimulating, being in and activating this sector, area or direction of your living, work space or business this year. It will bring “uneasy feelings” uncertainty and heaviness if stirred enough. Another area / direction to watch in Flying Star Feng Shui in 2014 is the East. Those who face or occupy the east this coming year…energy will be slow and challenges will manifest. Avoid sitting in or facing this direction this year. Women will be more influenced by this energy and it is known to bring health issues, particularly related to the stomach and digestion.

Those who occupy the east direction in 2014 will suffer more from mental fatigue, worry and anxiety symptoms. Remove any earth elements from this area of the home. Earth element relates to anything made of mud, clay, brick, stone, pottery, crystal and earth. Do not keep bright colours in this area of the home / office or building this year. This includes yellow, cream, beige, orange or even red, maroon and pink. Instead, use white, metallic, silver or gold. The best remedy here is metal objects and decor. East facing homes, dwellings and buildings need to keep their entries neutral and clean this year, without obstacles or activity. This includes avoiding electrical equipment, devices and moving objects, particularly flowing water, crystals and candles.

Those born with predominating water energy (element) will find greater balance this year as the warmth of the Wood Fire Horse brings balance to the cold of the water. Strong water people are born from the first week of November to the first week of January in the water months (animal signs).

For Earth month born people, this year brings a challenge to be more forthright and outspoken…to be more creative and speak more openly, to share their knowledge and gifts with the world.

New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio


This Sunday the 3rd of November we experience the Scorpio New Moon Solar eclipse.  Although we do not see this total eclipse occur from Australia, this is symbolic of a time in which life is fertile for the planting of seeds (literally and & spiritually with intention). During this time we must let go of something to make way for the new, as the forest clears way for undergrowth to begin under the open light… as an eclipse signifies endings of sorts…while the New Moon, is the time of new beginnings. This is wonderful in the sign of Scorpio as it foretells a time in which the past is brought to the surface, enriching the soil in which we plant the gardens of our future. I consider this time to be the greatest foundation, empowering us to utilise the fertiliser of the past pains and struggles through which we have learned, to enlighten us now in a time in which we are re-creating ourselves and the life that we build.

This time can be metaphorically experienced very much like a lantern in the night, that illuminates to it’s ultimate potential for beauty only in the darkness of the black moon taking the light of the Sun. It can be symbolic of the light within that illuminates the road ahead and the way for others. This is a time in which we can find our deepest light and beauty, only by delving and digging deeply into our darkest places within. It is here that we find our richest sources of inner wealth and wisdom. So let this significant Astrological time be a key for you, that helps open the door to the changes made possible in taking the step forward to dive deep down into the hidden aspects of your soul.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries


This lunar eclipse on the 18th arrives as Mercury slows before it’s retrograde through Scorpio from the 21st. At a time like this, people can not continue ignoring the influence of Astrology in our life. We have the powerful lunar event energetically renowned for igniting significant life events, not only in our spiritual lives, but on a more global level. While an eclipse signifies endings and completion, Mercury retrograde is known for it’s influence over our means of communication. While retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, we can expect to uncover gifts of the past and have the ability to draw wisdom from our pain, our loss and deepest emotions. This is a time in which we are called to go back and extract the meaning from our lessons gained in consolidation, completing our unfinished business and using it to bring meaning to our lives.

The lunar eclipse in Aries represents a time in which we close the doors on identities that no longer have truth for us. It’s time to redefine and recreate ourselves in a spiritual rebirth. It’s time to set ourselves free in honouring the past and giving thanks for it to set it free. Time to honour where we came from and be present to who we are, what we are driven to create, become and focus upon. The time has come to give ourselves recognition as individuals on a unique spiritual path…a soul with a purpose and place in this world. It’s time now to give shape and colour to our personal mission. This lunar eclipse, write down your reasons to live. Unveil your greatest desires and give clarity to your legacy, for it is this life that you are blessed with to accomplish that.

This lunar phase shines a light on the unique aspects of the soul that cannot be suppressed, denied or held back without a fight, be it internally or externally. It’s a time in which evolution requires us to be vulnerable in order to shine and give to the world what we can only do, as a part of humanities movement towards universal balance, order and transformation. It’s time to realise your power to shine a light in the darkness only you can heal. The heavens open a door now for us to make incredible shifts in the lives of those you yearn to change for the better. We must now open ourselves up to the limitless power to make a difference in the world.

It’s time to give in ways that reach out with greater influence and meaning. This full moon lunar eclipse is a time to mother the creative spirit within, to take that leap of faith into the unknown, to learn to fly as we fall. We are brought to a window now in which we can see far ahead into the distant future, so as to awaken the truth of our position, our potential and power to do with life many things. This is the eclipse cycle in which we must begin to choose, to own what we seek, explore what we are entitled to experience and share with the world. As our birth right, it is our gift to take in this time of initiation into a higher field of imagination manifestation.

We must now learn and understand the power of the mind, our words, our behaviour and ability to change the direction of life every single moment. The time has come to realise and appreciate the value of time itself, as a passing treasure to invest. We are challenged now to pour our resources into something lasting and real. In this time we are faced with the push to challenge the outer world and our place within it, and the pull towards the desire for long term power. This challenge holds the key to our evolution in learning who we really are, through struggling to make sense of the different aspects of ourselves that all need balance, recognition and fulfillment.

This full moon lunar eclipse takes place in the degree of the zodiac wheel that brings us to reflect on our ambitions, our directions and pursuits. We must now consider if they are worthy of our time. It’s a time in which we are faced with a need to develop character in order to grow and evolve in the journey of our true destiny’s manifestation. Take the time now to look closely at what you represnt and bring forth to the world. For what we give is what we become. What we contribute is what we attain.
