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
The waters of July have the ability to sweep through the current landscape of chaos like a tidal wave, clearing the path for something new. You are currently living in a space where clarity is limited, where feelings are paramount, and where it can be hard to make sense of the barrage of emotions. This lack of clarity feels like a negative. It is confusing, destabilising, and calls into question everything that you have relied upon. In fact, however, this is an intense clearing process, necessary in order to make the space for the level of change that is on offer at this time. It is always easier to remain as you are. It is always easier to hold tight and fight the changes that are there for you to embrace. However right now this stability that you have lived by is being challenged, uprooted, in order to create the space for a new beginning that is beyond anything you could have imagined from the safety and stability of the past.Read More
There is the potential for great change and transformation in June, if you are able to harness the power of your own thoughts and manifest the energy that leads you down the path of your true desires.Mental energy is high this month, and with it comes the possibility of great manifestation, but also of great self-sabotage. Where you go with your thoughts, your fears, your feelings is up to you. Yes, you are subject to the things that are taking place around you, but how you interact with them on a daily basis, how you interact with them through your mind and your energy is entirely within your control. This mental interaction can create a fog that acts like a barrier between you and the world you want to manifest. Creation energy is high this month, the ability to begin or complete something that has been long in the works is high. But this fog that hangs between you and completion is no small thing.Read More
‘Mind over matter,’ someone said to me recently. I’ve lived by that mantra my whole life. I know my mind is powerful, yours is too. Even when our minds are using their power in unhelpful ways, they still display super-human strength our bodies can only marvel at. In spirituality we’re constantly harnessing that power, but there is a well-recognised tendency to focus on the higher chakras to the detriment of our body. I am not innocent of that. Unfortunately we tend to carry on with this Mind over Matter theory until we’re forced out of it. It’s such a cultural norm that we don’t even notice how unhelpful it is. We persuade ourselves it’s a good thing, that it’s weak to do anything else. But what does it really help us achieve? Is it helping us go after our dreams or just enabling us to keep our head above water in a world where we expect ever more of ourselves and others? And what would really happen if we allowed ourselves to sink and had a good look at what was below the surface?Read More
December is a month that offers change and shift. Those who are looking for change will find it to be a wild ride where their own potential for manifestation increases many fold. They will find that the universe moves with them to change in whatever direction is in their own greatest good. If you are on your path it will open up before you. Distractions will fall away and become quieter, or disappear altogether. The journey will open up before you with more clarity than you have experienced in the past. There will be opportunities, helpers and guides at every turn to help you move further in your own right direction. This is a time to be really clear about what you want. It is a time to be focused on your goals, not on your fears. Because those fears will lead you into road-blocks and difficulties. Only aligned and forward-moving ventures will have wings at this time, so be truly honest with yourself.Read More
November sees another shift. The waves of Scorpio have been bashing down your defenses, encouraging you to open and to submit to the flow. For some this has been exciting, a challenging but wild ride that has carried them forwards. For others it has been a struggle and a journey that has taken them to the depths of their endurance. Whichever of these camps you fall into, look at your situation. Which buttons have been pushed? What resistance have you encountered? Have you moved forwards in the past days and weeks, or are you feeling stuck in a rut? For those of you who have done the work, who have looked at the lessons laid out before you and sought a way through that fueled your self-development, then the change from October to November may be significant. This is the time when the true gold of transformation takes its form. If you look, you can see the beginnings of what you are about to become. You are moving into a time of reaping benefits from the hardships that you have recently encountered. For some of you this may be big, a large goal that you have been aiming for. For others it may be a shift in a heartfelt relationship, or in the energy that you hold within yourself. Whatever you are focusing on now has the opportunity to move. The barriers have been broken down, the wounds are still fresh, but now they are being given an opportunity to heal as never before. Now you are able to let go of more of your patterns, more of your issues, as this water energy crashes through your own personal energy field, and your energetic blueprint. People often view their blueprint as something unchangeable, but this is in fact not the case. Your path in life was set before birth, yes, but not in an absolute way. There are always choices, always opportunities, and what is to say that the dream you hold close to your heart is not actually the path that you should be taking? Once again I call on you to look deep within yourself for the answer to your worries. You can find inspiration and help from many places around you, but always bring it back to what lies within your heart, what feels true to you on that most instinctive level. As you move further into this Ascension process, you become more and more intuitively connected. Your perception of reality shifts by the day. What felt acceptable, good even, months ago, now feels restrictive. You may feel trapped, but remember you are always in a position to step away from these bonds. You may not like the alternatives that are being presented to you by polite society. If this is the case, look for others. This is a time like never before, in its scope for change, for the new, and for complete and utter transformation. You do not have to be who you were a …
October is a month of contrast.
For many of you, relief and freedom will now come through change, through following the path that takes you away from the status quo and towards a new sense of security that is based not on static structure, but on the transformative fire of forwards movement. You will seek out each and every pattern that has you feeling stuck, recognising the stagnancy of the energy and the way it holds you back. Issues that have long seemed tolerable, will begin to feel impossible as you move through this energy, which is crashing through the structures that have held you unnaturally in a state of status quo.
