May is a time of digging into your own psyche to discover where you are responding to triggers from outside, and where you are, in fact, triggering yourself. It is increasingly difficult to avoid your own patterns and trigger points. They are being bombarded with greater and greater intensity, allowing you to experience them in their entirety. This is challenging, but it gives you the opportunity to either explore the issues that are revealed and release yourself to move forward, or to dig in and hold your ground. This is a moment of realising that you already have the sovereignty you desire, and that nobody will give you more than you already possess. There is no moment on its way where the universe will solve all of your problems for you. Instead there are a series of opportunities to recognise your own power to create your own reality, and to embody your own integrity and ability to see what is right for you and for those around you.Read More
March is a potent month with delays, reversals, newness and changes that you would never have expected. The waters of change are washing away the old and those who try to cling onto old structures become more and more frustrated by their attempts to grasp to something that is no longer solid. The way to avoid this frustration is to come from your own inner Priestess, your place of intuition and heart guidance. If you can truly turn off the chatter of your head that fills you with incessant fear and questioning, you can find a purer message that comes only from your heart. Even if this feels obscured, keep trying for it. The messages in the way are mere fog which can serve to distract you, but the truth and the lightness is always there underneath if you reach for it.Read More
In February the static will be high. there will be an onslaught of messages that may or may not be helpful to you. In this period of air energy, thoughts and messages will overrule emotions on the central stage, but the emotions will rise up underneath this cover, causing ructions underneath. It is important not to get too caught up in the narrative, in the constant stream of opinions and arguments. You know in your heart where your truth lies. Only by following that pull can you find your balance in this very heady energy. As you stand on the cusp of a new beginning, a new emotional landscape that will lead you on a different path to the one you expected, fear is rife. This process brings you up close and personal with both the new, and with the shadows that have been plaguing you through this large-scale clearing process.Read More
The potential for the new is high in this first month of 2019. This is a January with dramatic shifts that usher in the potential for change in a mindful and determined way. Whereas the eclipses of last summer brought in huge waves of change through dismantling, this set of eclipses offers you the opportunity to build, using the Capricorn energy of construction rather than deconstruction. This is a wonderful opportunity to set your intentions and to create from your heart in the way that you have so far been too afraid to do. As the Earth has been shifting, transmuting, shimmering through different timescales and realities, it has felt very destabilising. Many long-term dreams have been put off until later, when life feels more steady. This steadiness belongs to a time gone by. It would provide unstable foundations for any project launched in its image, because it is no longer of the structure of your energy, your blueprint, your path. To create something strong, you can now manifest through dynamic change and shift, through taking opportunities in the moments that they fly past you, offering you a portal to a more aligned and fast-moving timeline.Read More
December is a culmination, as many patterns reach their end point and move forward. There is much letting go still taking place. There is much release. Although things may be beginning to feel more stable, there is some friction about the way in which things move forwards that may be unexpected. This is a time when it would be beneficial to take a step back, to look at the way you really want to move forward, and to avoid getting caught up in the emotional turmoil and miscommunication that can be rife at this time.
It is always your choice how much you buy into the false narratives that surround you. It is always your choice whether you let go or hold on to the past with a death-grip. It is always your choice how you face the circumstances that lie ahead of you. There are many opposing forces in the world right now, those who want to move to any number of past moments, to recreate a future on the foundation of old patterns that are no longer in-date. The future lies in recognising that the old patterns are done. The future lies in making new ways forward that honour the new energies and have their root in love and compassion.
November is about endings and beginnings, beginnings and endings. It is a moment where cycles are highlighted, some reaching conclusion, others beginning. Do not be surprised if this brings up waves of emotion that you may not have expected. You may be surprised by grief you thought you had processed, fears you thought you had left behind, and excitement that you didn’t see coming. This is a time when change may seem easy, inevitable and unstoppable, or it may seem looming and difficult, like wading through treacle. Whichever of these feels true for you, will depend on your own personal work at this time however, either way, change is rife, change is important, change will move you forward into the next stage of your existence and your reality.Read More
This month is all about taking charge of your own destiny in the light of the alterations that have taken place in the life you live on a daily basis. For many of you, your day-to-day existence has changed substantially. This may have been disorientating, may have been a bigger shift than any you have experienced in recent times. And yet, although this has been challenging, it has also freed you to approach your world in ways that you would not before have accomplished.
This is your new beginning. It will be what you make of it. Are you ready to take control of your own actions, take control of your own desires and dreams and to attempt to bring them into reality?

Slowly a dying hush like a blanket of mist falls across a sleepy earth. The descending darkness embraces the great mother and sleep calls her whispering on an autumn breeze. Trees bow down as she passes a last blaze of finery and coppery gold leaves slip gently floating to the ground a patchwork of a fading summer.
The best time of the year for me is autumn . A time to go inwards and reflect on the past year – roaring fires and darkness. Evenings lit by glowing candles and reading ghost stories. Walking in a silent woodland leaves crunching underfoot and the smell of the earth’s sleep. Spindly spiky boughs over head ghost-like against grey skies, always beautiful, somehow more evocative than summer.Read More
And Breathe. The last few months have brought change of an even higher order than you have been accustomed to. These weeks that you have lived through have left you feeling stuck, overturned, undone and pitched forward into the unknown in a way that has terrified many. Those who considered themselves awakened have had their processess and assumptions challenged and called into question, their beliefs shaken and their patience stretched to the limit. Many others have been pitched forward into the awakening process, or have seen this journey accelerated. Patterns you thought long dealt with have come back up for re-examination. Changes you thought had bedded in have come up for question and you have been left feeling adrift. Do not fight this. This moment of being unanchored gives you a new kind of freedom, of opportunity, that you may find frightening, but which opens up your future in ways you have not anticipated. The new normal starts here.Read More
