LIBRA FULL MOON
JUSTICE IS SERVED
WEDNESDAY 8TH APRIL 2020
03:35 am (BST)
The next cosmic alignment of 2020 – Pluto conjunct Jupiter – is tonight, as the dwarf planet of destruction and rebirth, and the planet of expansion and growth conjunct, fuelling the process of transformation both collectively and personally.
There is a talk of a great portal opening up tonight when these two planets conjunt, where we can meditate together and help to co-create a new reality, but these changes don’t happen in a moment. Nature takes her time, and the alignment that starts tonight is building on the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in January, and will continue to reverberate for the rest of the year.
The planet Jupiter represents expansion and growth, but Pluto is the dark planet of destruction and transformation, making this a potentially painful, or blissful conjunction, depending on your perspective, your personal karma, and where you are focusing your attention.
This conjunction is mirroring what you are choosing to see, and what you are choosing to see is mirroring back to you.
The global sudden change of life as we know it, with no control over the situation, has triggered a lot of fear, anxiety and panic for some, while for others it has been a wake up call, a sudden halt to the busy-ness, a time to accept the situation, slow down, reassess and reflect.
The next shift in consciousness is happening – triggered by the Coronavirus, and people’s realities are now splitting apart. We are all experiencing this pandemic with our own lenses of experience and belief, and whatever you believe will become your reality.
We have reached the collective crossroads, as a species, and the choice is getting clearer. Choose love and a thriving planet for future generations, or choose fear, and a dystopian future of AI and control.
It is a choice each one of us has to make individually, and yet the choice we make will determine the future direction of humanity.
As we head deeper into this year, these Pluto-Jupiter conjunctions will have a significant impact on reality as we know it, and the choices we must make, as a species.
Fortunately, following on from the heels of this conjunction is the Libra Full Supermoon on Tues/weds, when the moon will be closest to Earth this year, and making it’s influence more intense and powerful.
The Libra Full Supermoon, represented by the scales, will begin to illuminate the reality behind the imbalances of power and control, by exposing the truth.
The field has been levelled and everyone is equal now, creating the perfect platform to see real justice happen under Jupiter and Pluto’s watchful eye, and illuminated by the Libra full moon.
It will be painful for some, yet very rewarding for others, as whatever is hidden will be exposed in the next few weeks. Nothing can stop the truth from being revealed. This is the time of instant Karma and justice will be served.
For some, it’s definitely time to shine in the darkness, and those that are in service could find themselves in a powerful position, while those who have held power in the past may find it diminishing very quickly.
The Libra full moon also reminds us that each of us is going through our own personal journey and there is no right and wrong. When we start pointing fingers and blaming we lose the ability to discuss anything in a rational manner.
There is a lot of noise and it can be overwhelming. Under the full moonlight we must listen to our own intuition, follow our own inner guidance and trust our own knowing. Turn off everyone else’s opinion and tune into the silence to hear your own.
When we stop listening to negativity we can start seeing the magic that is happening constantly. Look out for the powerful synchronisities and connections happening during this full moon, despite the lockdown and social distancing. When we are under pressure, life has a way of becoming more magical and many positive things are happening, to balance the negativity and fear.
These next few weeks are going to be intense, and this is a marathon not a sprint, so be prepared. By November, after the last Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, we will have a much clearer picture of the road ahead, but for now we are in the darkness and the best way to negotiate the darkness is to go step by step, moment to moment, accepting the situation as it is, and not as you would like it to be.
There is a call out for 1 million meditators to come together as the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction begins tonight and do a powerful visualisation of healing across the planet. I will be joining in, as this is a visualisation I have been doing for 7 years, in all my cacao ceremonies and it’s very powerful. The timings are different as its a global meditation. If you would like more info please click here.
I have also modified it for the full moon ritual below – as this is a visualisation that can be done on a regular basis to connect with the powerful galactic healing energy.
For those of you who would like to keep in touch more regularly with my online ceremonies, events, tips, and support to help you through this turbulent time we are creating a new mailing list that you can subscribe to here.

FULL MOON RITUAL
The ritual for this Libra full moon is to connect with the Galactic Centre so that we can send our love and harmony across the planet and envision a new reality.
Creating a quiet, sacred space strengthens the ritual and makes it more powerful. Turn off your phone, light some candles and incense, and make a safe, comfortable and sacred space.
Sit in a relaxed position, or lie down, whatever you feel most comfortable, and just give yourself five minutes to become aware of where you are and the sensations flowing around your body. Consciously imagine your body relaxing from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.
Breathe deeply three times. As you breathe in imagine yourself breathing in all the frustrations and worries you are feeling. As you breathe out, release them and imagine them leaving your body.
Once you are in a deeply relaxed state imagine floating up out of your body and into the night sky beyond our Earth, the Moon and the Sun to the centre of the galaxy. There you find the central Galactic Sun that is overseeing our Solar System, and as you get closer you can feel the vibration of Warmth, Wisdom and Love flowing into you.
Imagine the golden white light energy of the Galactic Sun entering into your body, into your physical body and flowing straight down into the core of Mother Earth and then disseminating out across our planet, healing any virus, sickness, unrest, fear, negative energy and injustice.
Now visualize white, pink, blue and golden light healing all inequalities, erasing all poverty and bringing abundance to all humanity. Visualize a new grand cosmic cycle of the Age of Aquarius beginning, bringing pure Light, Love and Happiness to all beings on Earth.
Connect with this energy and allow it to flow freely around your body.
While you are in this energy see if there any messages coming through to you from the Galactic Centre or you can ask the Galactic Sun for an answer to a question, or for guidance.
Now take a pen and paper and just start writing – don’t let the mind take control, just allow the pen to write and your inner most thoughts to come out.
Automatic writing takes us out of the rational mind and into the heart. It is a liberating exercise as we are able to communicate and express our deepest thoughts and desires without judgment from our inner critic and disbeliever.
Let the answers flow through you, or just enjoy the energetic upgrade!
VIRGO FULL MOON
KEEP ON KEEPING ON
MONDAY 9th MARCH 2020
The practical and earthy Virgo full moon on March 9th helps us get back in the flow and shows us what needs to be done in order to achieve our goals. We will also see a huge surge in energy, as Mercury goes direct on March 10th, giving us the determination, belief and motivation to keep on keeping on.
This Virgo full moon will give us all a boost of much needed energy, so that we can overcome the blockages, challenges and obstacles we have been facing, and fertilise our projects and creative endeavours with renewed positive and focused energy.
For many of us it has been a challenging few weeks, as it seems like everything is shifting and changing so rapidly it’s been difficult to know which way to go. Fortunately, this coming practical Virgo full moon reminds us to focus on what we want to bring into our lives, not what we don’t. Whatever we are paying our attention to, we are manifesting in all areas of our lives.
Unfortunately, this Virgo full moon can also amplify any anxiety or worries we may be having, increasing our emotional state and have us fearing the worst. At present, the media is in a negative frenzy over the coronavirus, so try not to get too caught up in the negative maelstrom, or worry about what you cannot control. It’s best to switch off the news if its affecting your state of mind.
If you are feeling vulnerable and emotional you will need to take positive action to calm your mind. Some helpful things you can do to bring yourself back into balance are..
- Switch off the news
- Surround yourself with positive people (and take a break from the fear mongers)
- Take some time out in nature.
- Hug a tree and release your fear and anxiety into its trunk.
- Walk barefoot on the grass and feel the Earth’s electro-magnetic currents flow through your body.
- Have a long hug.
- Start a gratitude diary.
- Bring yourself back into the present moment and remind yourself how good the present is.
- Count all the blessings in your life.
- Set the intention to bring magic back into your life.
If we focus on what we want to achieve this Virgo full moon promises us a brighter, more successful future by showing us what we need to do to make it happen.
The key is to set your intention clearly;. If you are unsure what intention to set over this full moon these are three good starting points.
What makes you happy?
If you had three wishes what would they be?
What one action can you take now to realise your dream?
This is also the full moon to clear out the last of the winter cobwebs. You may find yourself spontaneously decluttering and getting rid of old magazines, leaflets, business cards, cleaning out draws and sorting through paperwork.
Use the cleansing energy of this full moon to spring clean your house thoroughly. Open the windows and let the air circulate. Smudge all the corners with fresh sage while giving thanks for all your material things and everything that makes your home wonderful. This dissolves old and stale energy and creates space for new things to happen, as we spring into spring.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of Anne Frank:
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

FULL MOON RITUAL
This is the moon for shaking out the energy of winter, as we reach the peak of spring. Discard the heavy clothing that has protected you from the cold and dance the cobwebs of winter away. Take off your shoes and socks and walk barefoot reconnecting back to nature. Have a ‘sunbath’ and feel the heat of the warming sun on your body.
This is also a good time to write proposals, edit documents, or anything that requires focus and detailed activity and analysis.
Focus on getting your priority list sorted during the next two weeks to ensure you are on top of everything and ready to surf the Aries new moon wave just after Spring Equinox, when the energy will be ramping up, as we spring into spring.
Under a Virgo full moon we are often inspired to try something new and exciting. Take up a hobby, do a night class, learn a second language, cooking lessons, a new skill or anything that stretches your abilities.
This is also the perfect time to pamper and cleanse yourself. Take time out to have a massage, reflexology, acupuncture, colonic hydrotherapy, flotation, detox, or anything that makes you feel special and nurtured
If you don’t have the finances to spend on yourself, take a long hot bath with essential oils, give yourself a foot massage and eat a delicious home-cooked meal. Curl up with a good book or reconnect with an old friend you haven’t spoken to for ages. Find the time to love and honour yourself that will make you feel nourished and rejuvenated.
PISCES NEW MOON
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 23 2020
The Pisces new moon on Sunday, during a Mercury retrograde, is probably the most emotional and watery moon of the year, because it illuminates more acutely our inner fears and negative beliefs that we keep hidden and suppressed.
It may feel as if we are fighting against the current, especially if we are feeling trapped in a relationship or a job, stuck in a rut, not reaching our full potential, or facing the consequences of decisions we have made that did not really honour us, or support our visions and goals.
Even though it may be painful, it is important to allow what is hidden in our unconscious to bubble to the surface so we can deal with them. If you are finding life a struggle at the moment, the key to surfing this emotional energetic wave is to feel grateful for all the blessings in your life.
This takes effort, as we are hard-wired to only see danger and negativity, but if we don’t have a balanced perspective, or tools to deal with the inner critic, trauma or self-hatred, this moon cycle can get very dark and stormy.
Surround yourself with loved ones and good friends, and don’t be surprised if you also find yourself having a good sob during the next two weeks. Crying recalibrates our bodies and can make us feel more balanced and calm, especially if we have been under immense stress and pressure.
Pisces is represented by two fishes swimming in opposite directions, symbolising the tensions of our heads and hearts pulling in different directions.
However, the heart speaks loudest and clearest during a Piscean new moon so instead of being Life’s victim, use this new moon energy to get clear on what your heart desires – what do you really want?
Focus and imagine that reality coming true (without doubt), and then remain open, trusting and responsive to your intuition, which is guiding you to the right circumstances in order to manifest it. This means allowing your passion, and not your rationality, guide you.
Over this Pisces new moon our feelings of love and compassion will also increase, reminding us we are part of the whole, and we all belong to the family of humanity. It is becoming too painful to just sit in our ivory towers thinking, `I’m all right, sod the rest of the world!`
This new moon ignites a strong desire to be part of the movement that is making the world a better place to live. We feel more compassionate and forgiving, so this is a good moon to bury the hatchet and make peace with someone you have disagreed with.
Over this moon we can receive very powerful visualisations of the future, a new direction, or a new project, or creative endeavour. If you are receiving a vision of something, nurture the idea and let it marinate, rather than letting your negative critic destroy it.
Pisces is also the moon of reflection and contemplation that can, like water, help us to dissolve and disintegrate any obstacles in order to live our dreams. so we may find things coming to an end if they are no longer serving us.
This is the final moon of the western Zodiac and reminds us that everything is in our lives for a season, a reason or a lifetime. When something is in our life for a reason, it’s usually to meet a deep need.
Some things come into our lives for a season, and brings us the opportunity to share, grow and learn. Things that remain with us for a lifetime are there to help us develop a solid emotional foundation. When we can accept something has reached its natural end, it is easier to let it go.
Use this Piscean new moon wisely, to find some way of serving others, end things that are not serving you, set clear intentions for the new season, and make the necessary preparations over the next few weeks so that you can spring into spring next month with clear direction and focus.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of William Arthur Ward:
““We must be silent before we can listen.
We must listen before we can learn.
We must learn before we can prepare.
We must prepare before we can serve.
We must serve before we can lead.”

NEW MOON RITUAL
This Moon is the time to get visioning and the perfect time to make a vision board! Start collecting old magazines and find a strong piece of card to stick your images on.
A vision board is a practical exercise that clearly defines what you want to achieve in the coming months using visual imagery. A vision board works best when you know what you want to manifest but you are not sure how to bring it into reality.
When we make a vision board we are setting clear intentions to the Universe, using specific images and pictures, and asking the Universe to effortlessly and magically (always ask for the magic!) manifest it to you.
There are no timelines on a vision board so patience and trust are required, but things are speeding up on the planet so if your visions are in alignment with your deepest intentions you may see them manifesting pretty quickly!
Do it with a sense of reverence and respect, so that you take the power of this ceremony seriously. Before you begin your vision board spend some time getting clear exactly what you want to manifest. If you are with friends, have a talking circle so that you can all share what your visions are, thereby clarifying them before starting the exercise.
If you are alone spend 15-30 mins relaxing, and spending some time in silent meditation so that you can begin to hear what your intuition is showing you. Use this exercise as a creative ritual. Let your intuition guide you, so if something random pops up, don’t ignore it. See if you can find an image that resonates with the idea, and stick it on the board.
Tip: I have found that when I choose two or three particular visions that relate specifically to me, rather than a vision board with abstract aspirations such as world peace, it is easier to see them manifest.
This is also a great moon to do some service. Whether its voluntary work, helping a friend, supporting someone who is sick, or doing some work for a charity. The form doesn’t matter, the power is in the intention to serve someone who is less fortunate then you. When we serve we cultivate the attitude of gratitude that spreads a loving, generous vibration out into the world, and is returned to us in all ways
LEO FULL MOON
FINDING YOUR ROAR
SUNDAY 9TH FEBRUARY 2020
I always find this full moon strangely placed in the moon cycle. The Leo moon is all about coming out of the shadows, finding your roar and shining bright, but it comes in January/February when the earth is still hard and cold and only the first brave few flowers are blooming.
It seems too early this year to be blazing forward and I am getting a strong feeling to hold back, don’t do anything rash, and allow the transition from winter to spring happen gradually.
On 17th February, we are also entering the first Mercury Retrograde of the year so this is a warning to sign and complete any projects, contracts or agreements before then. Mercury, the planet of Communication goes backwards in the sky, disrupting communications, electronics and travel arrangements.
This is a period of reflection, evaluation and assessment, and a good time to take a pause from creating anything new and making sure you are on the right track, and on top of all your projects and work.
It is advised not to start any new projects, or sign and make any new agreements or contracts until Mercury goes forward on 10th March. Very often things can turn out badly if agreed during a Mercury retrograde.
The more you use this period to clear up the backlog of work and get clear and focused, the easier it will be to spring into spring in time for the Spring Equinox on 22nd March.
The Leo full moon helps us to see beyond our insecurities by igniting our pride and self-worth. This is the moon where we can find our roar and say what we really feel.
To help you navigate this Mercury retrograde and Leo full moon ensure you are using your discernment. We may well hear a lot of lies, deceits and untruths being spoken over this period, as the Leo full moon can influence people to overexaggerate, distort and falsify the truth to get what they want.
The Leo full moon can inflate the ego and spark strange behaviours so you may also find loved ones, your boss, or line manager acting a bit weird and egotistical. We may also see a lot of posturing and chest beating, during this period, from a number of our world leaders who want to prove their dominance and power.
This full moon also has a tendency to urge us to roar load and proud about who we are, without shame or embarrassment. Philip Schofield coming out as gay in the UK this week is the perfect example of how a Leo full moon can inspire us to speak our truth.
However, be aware that that there is a right time and place to speak our truth so think before speaking, or you could find that your words offend or upset others over this moon, especially if you are feeling emotionally charged. It’s best to wait until you are no longer affected by the situation to speak your mind.
This Leo full moon also helps us feel more courageous, urging us to go beyond our comfort zone. Use the full moon energy to spur you to do something daring this week. When we go beyond our comfort zones our perspectives change. We are able to see more opportunities opening up, and life becomes a lot more exciting and adventurous.
The Leo full moon reminds us that nothing is impossible, and the more you believe in yourself, the more you can achieve.
Use this moon to go for your dreams, and let the energy of this powerful full moon give you the courage and the belief to make it happen.
I will end the Lunascope with the wise words of Rabindranath Tagore:
“I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.”

FULL MOON RITUAL
This is a good time to look for a new job or see how you can tweak your present position in your current job. The Leo full moon is great for giving us the confidence and determination to believe in ourselves and go for what we want and know we deserve it.
This full Moon ritual will help you to see where you have come from in order to decide where you want to go.
Wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give the time to yourself. Create a quiet, calm and peaceful space. Light some incense and sit in a comfortable position with your back straight.
Close your eyes and become aware of your body. Connect with your toes, legs, thighs, torso, arms, neck, face and then crown. Inhale all your stresses and release all your frustrations, just breathe them right out your body, repeat this three times.
Now see the journey that you have been on the last year. Allow yourself some time to really acknowledge the key turning points in 2019, and why you had to go through the experiences you went through, both positive and negative.
Write down the most important lessons you learnt from last year and how they have shaped you into who you are now. See how far you have come emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Life is never static and we are always moving forward, even when it does not look like it.
Now see yourself in a year’s time. Don’t think about how you are going to achieve your goals, just see and feel yourself in a years time… What are you doing? How are you feeling? Allow this future visión of you to permeate into your being. Feel without doubt that you are going to become that person.
Ignore your inner critic or any negative thoughts that try to stop you from really feeling this future you. Instead, allow the excitement to well up within you like an effervescent bubble so that when you are feeling low and disempowered, remind yourself of this feeling.
Everything we are experiencing in the external world, is only a reflection of our inner thoughts and feelings. If you want to see change in your life you need to change the old, worn out behaviour patterns that no longer serve you. Creating a new vision of you is the first step to creating a new reality, and the Leo full moon is the perfect time to start!
AQUARIUS NEW MOON
FRIDAY 24TH JANUARY 2020
The coming Aquarius New Moon on Friday also heralds the Chinese New Year, symbolised by twelve animals. This year the Chinese Zodiac starts a new cycle, with the year of the Metal Rat.
The more we become aware of what is happening on the energetic level, the easier it is to see the cycles of nature that influence us. Twelve years ago, we had the 2008 financial crash that reverberated around the world. For many this cycle, was a difficult and stressful time, igniting a twelve year period of austerity, poverty and inequality.
Fortunately, this new cycle, symbolised by the Metal rat balances the last cycle to bring financial prosperity and luck. The stronger your foundations and preparations, the more success you will experience. This is also a great year to start new projects, or see projects come to fruition and success – especially if you have been struggling in the past.
After the last year of turbulence and letting go, this is the year to find your tribe, and the people that reflect your values and principles. Follow your intuition and discernment so that your time is spent with people that support and honour you.
This new zodiac cycle and new moon, gives us the courage and confidence to believe everything is possible and know that we are the creators of our destiny.
The Aquarius new moon kick starts this energy, represented by the water bearer, who pours water over the hard winter soil to nourish and prepare it for the coming spring. See this as a new beginning, a new story, where you can let go of the past decade and start this new one with a clean slate.
It reminds us to nourish the dreams we planted over the winter months by starting to take the action required to manifest them. When we remain focused, determined and committed, and not let disappointments or failures of the last year hold us back, we will find this year will bring us closer to our goals.
The Aquarius new moon was also known as a purification moon, and the Roman’s used the month of February to purify their houses and outhouses. It also reminds us to wash out any toxicity from our lives, so we can fertilize the ground for our dreams and visions.
The Aquarius new moon helps us to think outside the box, see things from different perspectives and revitalise our spirits, especially if things have been tough and testing.
By helping us to see the situation we are in with less fear and attachment, we can see the possible solutions more clearly. It also enables us to be more fluid in our thinking and able to suddenly make changes that previously seemed impossible to do.
Allow yourself to dream over this moon and don’t dismiss anything until you have taken careful consideration of the situation, especially if it seems impossible. Under this moon, we are able to see the potential and believe anything is possible.
If you are unsure of the next steps use this time for meditation and inner reflection so you can tap into the Aquarian creativity. All the answers and solutions are buried within you, and we must be still to hear what needs to be done next.
During this new moon, it is important to take a pause from the daily grind, to ensure you are on the right track, and heading in the right direction. I have been called back to the Amazon Jungle for this reason.
There is so much noise and distraction in the urban jungle it is often difficult to discern our own inner knowing. We all need time to disconnect, go into the silence, and recharge our batteries to ensure that our visions and dreams are in alignment with our heart and purpose.
This Moon, ruled by Uranus and Saturn, and fuelled by the Metal Rat, will also deepen and intensify the cracks in our present political, financial, and economic systems, as we face ever more pressing problems on Planet Earth.
Despite the cunning, intelligence and ruthlessness of the rat, they are social animals that live in groups and work together, reminding us that if we want to see real change, we are stronger together.
It is warning us that we must start uniting as a community of humans in order to protect our planet’s natural resources for future generations, and prepare ourselves for the climatic changes that are already creating chaos and destruction.
We can no longer wait for governments to stop dithering, afraid of taking bold and crucial decisions, or wait for chairmen and CEO’s of big businesses to finally take responsibility for their actions.
Business is made up of individuals like you and I, and that’s where the change will happen, when we all decide to make the changes in our lives, with the Aquarius moon leading the way with this first new moon of 2020. When we feel this connectedness we no longer feel alone, and realise that only together can we change the world.
I will end the Lunascope with the wise words of Albert Einstein
“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times, a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labours of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”

NEW MOON RITUAL
This ritual is all about getting to the roots of fears that restrict you in creating your dreams and visions efficiently and effortlessly.
Be patient and wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give some time to yourself.
Find a quiet, peaceful space where you will be uninterrupted. Light some candles and burn incense to create an ambient space. Find a comfortable position, preferably with your spine straight. Close your eyes and become aware of your body. Connect deeply and slowly with your toes, legs, thighs, torso, arms, neck, face and then crown.
Inhale calm, relaxing golden light into each area. As you exhale, release any stress, tension and frustration, just breathe them right out of your body. Repeat this process until you feel relaxed and stress free.
Imagine a light shining within your solar plexus. Let this energizing light flow around your body. If you come across any blockages or grey areas, slowly allow the light to infiltrate these areas until you feel your whole body glowing from within.
Go deep and allow your deepest thoughts to come up. Allow yourself to face what you most fear, and what you most desire. Be honest about any addictive patterns, substance or behavior abuses or negative patterns. Are they in moderation or are they excessive and damaging? What actions can you take towards helping yourself become more empowered?
Imagine yourself breaking through old patterns and striding forward, manifesting your dreams.
At least once a day, follow your intuition rather than your rational mind, even if it doesn’t make any sense. The more you do this, the easier it will become, and very soon your intuitive, inner heart will begin to communicate with you and guide you. Be open to the messages and use the energy of Aquarius to trust yourself enough to make changes to be happy
For the next two weeks every morning and evening spend five minutes just looking at yourself in the mirror. If you have never done this before it can be a very difficult exercise and you may find resistance to really seeing yourself.
Go beyond the fear and really look deep into your own eyes. From this perspective you can begin to really see yourself from the inside. Repeat the words ‘I Love You’ over and over, even if you do not really feel it.
Once you have got used to saying these words, try and feel the energy of love flowing around your body. The more you do this ritual the easier it will become, deepening and strengthening your confidence and courage
CANCER FULL MOON ECLIPSE
FRIDAY 10TH JANUARY 2020
We are coming to the end of the eclipse window tonight with the Cancer full moon, and already 2020 has started with unrest and instability during this period.
This first full moon of the year with a lunar eclipse will illuminate and heighten our feelings of insecurity, and where we feel unsafe both in our personal lives, and as part of the greater whole.
This full moon eclipse, coupled with the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 22 degrees Capricorn on 12th January that is igniting feelings of rebellion and protection, are fanning the flames of destruction and transformation.
This Saturn/Pluto conjunction will bring to the surface where we feel limited, controlled and restricted, and where we are ready to rebel, destroy and transform the situation. If your security and safety is feeling threatened then these astrological alignments are only going to increase the tension.
Hence, for an astrologer, the tensions in the Middle East, since the killing of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani during this eclipse window, is an indication of how the planets can seem to be influencing, or at the very least, mirroring what is playing out on Planet Earth.
Trump perceived the General to be a direct threat to the safety and protection of America, and now Iran see the killing of the General, as a perceived attack on their safety and protection. This is a classic example of how the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn can play out!
Don’t be surprised if some of our political leaders act irrationally or destructively over the next few months. This is the energy on the Planet at the moment. It’s the energy of the thunderbolt that ignites the transformation, and right now in this new cycle, a lot of structures need to break down in order for real change and transformation to happen.
On a more personal note; If you are feeling in a rebellious, ‘fuck it’ mood you can use the energy of this conjunction, and the Cancer full moon eclipse, to fuel your courage and fearlessness to break the rules. This is the perfect time to speak your truth and stand up for justice and what you feel is right. The planets have your back and are urging you on!
People will have strong opinions during this time, so be aware not to get involved in any frays, or try and change them, as the Cancer full moon ignites the need to protect what is most dear and sacred.
As always, if we recognise the blessings in the burdens, take time in nature, and focus on what is good in our lives, we can calm any anxiety, stress or fear that may start becoming overwhelming if we are feeling out of control.
We are living in unprecedented times and sometimes the storm actually brings us closer to where we need to be.
I will end this lunascope with the wise words of Swami Vivekananda:
“If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.”

FULL MOON ECLIPSE RITUAL
If you are feeling a surge of pent up frustration, anger, disappointment, or just feeling uneasy and don’t know why, go and dance, or do some exercise to get you out of your head and back into your body. Just putting on some of your favourite music and dancing with yourself can help you to feel better and more positive.
Make peace with anyone that you have had a misunderstanding or disagreement with. The Cancer full moon can show us where we behaved badly, or misjudged a situation, so that we can put things right and make amends. When we can truly forgive, we can finally let go of any guilt and sorrow that is weighing us down.
A powerful forgiveness ritual is Ho’ pono pono.
Begin your ritual with a prayer of gratitude for all the blessings in your life and for the op- portunity to bring more peace and harmony. Visualise the person that you need to do this ritual with, (it can also be yourself), and once you can see them in your mind, state these words with all the love and compassion:
I Love You
Continue repeating these words until the words contain power and energy and you begin to feel a warm sensation of love and compassion flow through your body. Break through any resistances, knowing that life is too short for you to be carrying around anger, hate, sorrow, pain, and frustration. Once we let go of these emotions, we free ourselves up to bring in more positive and loving experiences into our lives.
The purpose of this process is that by turning the attention inwards, where you are in control, rather than externally where you are unable to change the actions of others, you shift whatever it is inside you that is attracting certain situations to you. Once you change your energy, you will find the outside world will change automatically, and effortlessly.
When we accept that we have chosen this person and this situation, and we are responsible for everything that has, and is happening, we can learn from our mistakes and make different choices next time.
