Today we have our last giveaway, a signed copy (?) of award-winning Werewolf novel, Oathbreaker, from author Shelley Wilson. Shelley is a bit of a superwoman penning both exciting YA fiction and bestselling, motivational self-help books. She has also just landed a fabulous, 10 book publishing contract with ….. and an Apple fiction award. I really loved Oathbreaker and it flew onto my kindle just when it was needed, at a moment when I couldn’t find anything I liked.

Energy reading for October-November

Martha Dunlop News Leave a Comment

Last week we had a Super Moon in Aries. Full moons are all about letting go, about clearing away the patterns we no longer need and leaving space for the new. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and the sign most associated with forwards movement. So this has been a powerful experience for many of us. Strong energy is not unusual right now, we have been experiencing it month after month, in fact, it often feels that it becomes more and more intense each time. But it is always different as it clears away deeper and deeper layers of the negative conditioning patterns that we have built up over millennia of lifetimes. Now, as the energy changes, the clearing is speeding up, to an almost breathless pitch. It can feel tough and it can feel exhilaratingly blissful depending on the needs of our own path at any given time.
I asked The Light Circle what were the key feature of this current energy and what we need to learn and focus on right now.
