Themes of endings, of transformation, abound this month, making way for an edgy feel that can be experienced as either excitement or anxiety. These feelings have been building for some time but, for many, they will now be reaching a peak, a point of no return whereby some kind of change becomes necessary. This change may be welcome, it may be simply better than the alternatives, or it may be something that feels forced, or foisted upon you. Whichever the case, you are in a place of culmination, a place where the status quo is beginning to feel untenable. You may be feeling mood swings. You may be feeling a lack of trust in those around you, or those you have to rely on. You may mistrust your own judgement and your personal ability to take the next step in your life. This mental energy can feel overwhelming, so take some time to think through your self-care techniques and focus on how to channel it for your own greatest good. It can bring great rewards if you harness it and put it to good use in your own personal transformation.Read More
This month begins with a period of significant change, courtesy of the two eclipses. This is a time of taking a crucial step forwards, of raising your vibration, moving into a different reality and developing your own ability to manifest through focus and intention. This may feel, to some, like a period of unrest, as what no longer resonates continues to crumble. It it is a time of adjustment, a time of quiet, as the process of assimilating these energies is as powerful as the activation. Typically, in your world, you push through the change. You resist the compulsion to adjust and rather keep moving at all costs. This time of assimilation is, in fact, paramount. It is the very purpose of your current moment. During these strong adjustments, the quiet times are when you can absorb the shifts, and ensure that you are able to move forward in the most productive and aligned way for you, and for you alone.Read More
Today Jupiter, the cosmic magnifier, moves from balance-led Libra into the transformational waters of Scorpio. Transformation is hardly new to us right now. In fact, Jupiter in Libra has seemed to be more about shouting down injustice than living in a state of peaceful balance. My guides, The Light Circle had this to say: At this time, as Jupiter moves into your astrological sign of Scorpio, tensions and feelings are running high. There is a great deal of emotional overwhelm at the moment, as the energies, feelings, and intuitions are flowing around you at a pace that is greater than you have previously experienced. Many of you are adjusting well, and yet this doesn’t mean the process is easy. Rather it means that you are flowing at a greater rate than you would previously have deemed possible to bear. The emotions that come with this Scorpio period will be many and varied. The experience could be anything from extreme joy to extreme sorrow. Old cycles will end and new ones will begin. As such, this will be a period of great renewal that will take you deep into your own emotional body, to experience the depths and heights that you are capable of.Read More
‘I am a purveyor of stories. I dive into the mysteries of life, into the magic of our journey, and the playfulness of the human spirit. I seek the wisdom of goddesses, animals, angels, natural oracles, crows, and humans, too.
‘My stories touch the edge of tenderness and courage.
‘I invite you to discover the vast world of the Great Lands, the Fated, my retelling of fairy tales & myths, and my original fables. I promise to explore further, deeper, wider — with a brave heart, guiding you to the edge of experience.’Read More
Scroll down for audio. From the Light Circle August is a shift month for you. As you have been travelling through the waters of cancer you have felt the flow, felt the release, felt the emotional pressure. Now in the fires of Leo, you prepare to burn up what has been left behind and discarded. This process of Ascension has led you through a challenging path in recent months and many of you are straining for something new. Now is the moment to embrace that ‘new’ if it is what you desire. The energy is in your favour, however it may not be handed to you on a plate. Instead, as the sovereign being that you are, you are being called to choose the destiny you have longed for, to set your intention and move forwards in the glow of your own light. The future is yours. The future will be what you create, and now, as the speed of manifestation increases many fold, what you desire or what you fear may be manifest faster that you could have believed possible. If you are stalling, ask yourself why. What is holding you back from what you truly desire? Do you fear change? Because change is certainly what is being offered here and for many this is seen as a frightening concept that is a disturbance of the status quo and no more. But change is the essence of where you are going. As you move further and further along this Ascension path, you are embracing a state of flow that means the static will be swept aside. Instead of sticking to that which has been before, open to new ways of doing things. Open to new joys and possibilities. Do not hold onto the safe for the sake of it, instead. Find new safety zones that nourish without restricting. This is a time of joy and excitement for those who are willing to shift, but it is a challenge for those who are stuck in an old path of resistance, and there will be many who sit in-between at different stages of their own personal journeys and moments of service to the whole. The ten of Earth tells of the end of an Earth cycle, of preparation for a new beginning in day-to-day life. This is a moment of taking stock and stepping out into the new, with the learning that has been gained from past experiences. This is not starting from scratch, but as seasoned travellers with wisdom gained, wisdom hard won through experience. The Messenger of the Earth takes you deep into the collective psyche, tapping into wisdom held in Gaia, in the collective energy and in the wisdom of the bodies you have nurtured through your lives from birth. There is much to be released in your physical structures, but there is also much to be appreciated. You should honour your bodies and the earth on which you stand, allowing yourself to be grounded and linked into …
I am in the middle of a big, and often dreaded astrological transit. Pluto, the lord of the underworld, death and transformation, very slowly passed over my Sun (my will and purpose) and then my Mercury (communications, writing, travel). I’m not going to lie, it’s been a challenging time, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about.I want to tell you about the day the Pluto/Mercury transit peaked, the day one of my long-held dreams came true.I have wanted a dog for as long as I can remember, but for the first time in my adult life, it felt like the right moment. I didn’t just want any dog, I wanted a Cavalier, the breed I grew up with, the cute, cuddly little dogs like Lady in Lady and the Tramp.Read More
