Full Moon in Libra Tarot Readings

Full Moon Readings

This coming Full Moon on 20th March also fall’s on the same day as the Spring Equinox, for many of us during this time we may feel the need to have more balance and harmony in certain areas of our personal life.

There may be a shift regarding our relationships either finding a new love or sorting out anything that’s been smouldering under the surface in an existing relationship that you probably haven’t wanted to deal with.

Librans are ruled by Venus the planet of love and because it’s also the Spring Equinox this is a great a time for new beginnings, birth and re birth and planting the seeds for a happier future.

March Full Moon has that little bit extra energy, it will be one of the most illuminating Moons this year. Take advantage of it and make time to sit down and really think about the people that are in your life.

Think about those that are doing you harm or making you un happy maybe now is a good time to cut those cords,  this can also be anything that surfaces from the past and un healthy attachments to old relationships.

Clear the way to let in the new, so you can truly blossom into the fabulous person you are meant to be.

For a few days during this Full Moon I will be offering my Moon Readings, they were very popular on the last New Moon and I received some great feedback.

Available until Friday 22ns March.

If you would like to book your £20 Moon Reading, drop me a message.

Handfasting

wedding.jpg

You might be wondering what a Handfasting is, it’s the pagan equivalent of a marriage ceremony. This ceremony is not a legally binding in the eyes of the law, it is however a binding contract to the couple on a deeper spiritual level.

The ceremony usually begins with everyone gathering at a selected spot, the area is then cleansed, swept with a broom to get rid of any negativity and turned into a sacred space.

The 4 elements,  Air, Fire, Water and Earth are called in, as well as the God and Goddess. Once this is done then the main ceremony begins.

The couple are led through their declaration of love and vows their hands are held together and bound loosely by a special set of Cords (usually Gold & Silver) however any colour is ok.

The couple then `jump the broom’ which is a symbol of hearth, home and fertility, as well as protection.

This act symbolises leaving the past is behind as they jump over the broom in to the future together.

During the celebrations other couples can get to jump the broom, which is held at knee height by specially designated people.

It is also traditional for the couple to bless the wedding cake & wine, meads, champagne etc, and all the family, friends & guests are invited to come forward and offer their own blessings.

How the rest of the ceremony then proceeds is really up to the couple.

The handfasting ceremony can be intimate and small  with the couple and a few family & friends, or a big festive event just like any other wedding ceremony with lots of people, entertainment and dancing.

The venues can vary from a local park, woodland, forest, a hall, a home garden, by a stream, near a waterfall or on the beach.

As pagans consider nature to be sacred usually they take place in woodlands or some natural setting.

The ceremony is usually an initiated by a High Priestess or someone involved in Wicca or other spiritual practices.

We like family & friends of the couple to help out and get involved with some of the ceremony by doing readings & poems.

It is important that some of the tools for the ceremony, especially the rings, cords and the broom not forgetting an altar which is created and decorated for the event.

The couple may have a wedding theme or dress code for their guests, a colourful dress for bride and suitable attire for the groom.

The venue which can be decorated with ribbons and flowers, the entertainment can be traditional musicians, drummers, violin & harp players, or even Morris Dancers. There are no rules all you need is imagination.

Ostara – Spring Equinox

Ostara

March 20th brings with it new beginnings as we enter the cycle of rebirth, the days will get lighter as spring approaches. It’s a good time to have a spring clean and clear out the clutter not only in your home but in your life.

You can call upon the goddess Eostre she will help you to develop your intuition and move forward and get rid of all the things that no longer serve your highest purpose.

It’s a good time to move away from people that you no longer want in your life, those that you have just been putting up with the ones that drain your energy, you can call this if you like your own re birth!

You can also set up your altar with spring flowers, burn sandalwood oil or incense whatever you prefer, and take time to reflect on what you want to change.

Now is the time to sow the seeds of your new ventures and start planning, write them down and make a conscious effort to spend the time making it happen and then continue with steady progress throughout the rest of the year.

If your setting up your altar you can also use the following,

Incense: Jasmine or Rose
Decorations: Yellow Disk or Wheel, Coloured Egg’s, Hare Decorations, Spring  Flowers.
Candles : Yellow, Light Green, Lemon Yellow & Pale Pink.

Frankincense is good oil to burn during Ostara to welcome spring and to refresh your life, it smells lovely too.

Moon Magic

moon-goddess-may-25-2013-eclipse-1024x823

The Moon is the astronomical body closest to us and, therefore, has a profound influence upon us, it is very important to choose a time when the Moon is in an astrological sign which is appropriate for your working.

For example:
Aries/Action – Enthusiasm
Taurus/ Renewal – Sensuality
Gemini/Communication – Curiosity
Cancer/Emotion – Nurturing
Leo/Vitality – Determined
Virgo/Organizing – Studious
Libra/Balance – Cooperation
Scorpio/Sexual – Philosophical
Capricorn/Authority – Ambitious
Aquarius/Innovation Social
Pisces/Sensitivity – Idealistic.

Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the Moon is Waxing (from Dark to Full); when the Moon is Waning (from Full to Dark), it is time for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.

The highest energy occurs at the Full Moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magickal workings. The New Moon is the next most powerful time for Magick.

Whenever possible, follow Nature’s natural Energy Currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for
maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things ( a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.

Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.

Astrological Moon Phases:

Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion, or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head, or brain are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Taurus is the best time to work magick for love, real estate, material acquisitions, and money. Healing rituals for ailments of the throat, neck, and ears are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Gemini is the best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations, and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands, or lungs are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Leo is the best time to work magick involving authority, power over others, courage, fertility, or childbirth. Healing rituals for ailments of the upper back, spine, or heart are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Virgo is the best time to work magick involving employment, intellectual matters, health, and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Libra is the best time to work magick involving artistic work, justice, court cases, partnerships and unions, mental stimulation, and karmic, spiritual, or emotional balance. Healing rituals for ailments of the lower back or kidneys are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets, and fundamental transformations. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this period of time.

It’s a marvellous night for a moon dance.

On 21st January, there will not only be a Super Moon, there is also going to be a Blood Moon.

A Blood Moon is the one that happens at a time of a total lunar eclipse, while a Super Moon is actually a new or full moon which occurs when it is in the nearest point to the planet Earth.

At a time of a total lunar eclipse, the moon appears almost red coloured. The reason for this is the way in which the shadows of the planet Earth appear while the moon is passing through it.

A lunar eclipse will only happen on full moon and only when the Moon, Sun, and Earth are perfectly lined up.

This one is also going to be a Super Moon, where the moon is going to appear a bit bigger. When it’s closer to the planet, it looks even bigger than usual. A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is on the other end of the planet from Sun, and the one which is noted at its nearest point.

During this phase, you can prepare for the total lunar eclipse, which is going to start on the 21st of January. Our Moon is going to be in a total eclipse for less than an hour, and it will turn an orange-red in colour.

This January’s Super Moon could have an effect on some of you, it can mean that unexpected events or news are more likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about the future. Your life may seem more hectic and fast paced than before.

Emotions and instincts may grow stronger during a lunar eclipse, meaning it’s a good time to examine your close relationships. This is because you will be more closely in tune with your needs and desires as the eclipse takes hold, enabling you to see disharmony in your life.

However, you may also feel jumpy as the Moon squares in Uranus causing rapid mood swings and impulse reactions. Your patience and focus may slip, and you may feel inclined to rebel.

For some that tend to be more sensitive and relaxing may become difficult during this period, as unsettling feelings creeps in and you anticipate something new over the horizon.

On a more positive note, this eclipse will grant you the chance to see things from a different perspective.

By remaining flexible, calm and open-minded is the key to dealing with any unexpected events, from your car breaking down to delayed travel plans, it might be a good idea to have a backup plan.

The Crystal You Should Have, Based On Your Zodiac Sign.

moon-3.jpg

If you’re into both astrology and crystals like yours truly, then you know every zodiac sign is going to be dealing with different themes, challenges, and blessings through the duration of our planet’s next journey around the sun.  The vibes are definitely high, but there are lessons in store for all of us in 2019 nonetheless and crystal healing is a great way to offer you a little extra support and guidance.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Spirit Jasper

2019 is going to be about quality you time, Aries. Don’t spend too much time focusing on other people dedicate time away from the office to indulging yourself with self care. Spirit Jasper, a gentle, grounding crystal, is the perfect enhancer of self-love. It can help you see the positive qualities in yourself and accept them, which is exactly the attitude you should embrace in 2019.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Charoite

Spread your wings and fly in 2019, as you open your mind to claim your higher consciousness and spirituality get ready to soar through the year, Taurus. Charoite is the perfect consciousness expanding stone to work with during 2019. It’ll help enhance your crown chakra, which is your energetic centre for spiritual connection, and connect it with your heart chakra.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Black Kyanite

Learning boundaries in relationships will be challenging this year. However it will be essential for your partnerships to flourish. Black Kyanite is an amazing negativity clearing crystal. It’s extremely protective energetically, so it’ll help you identify toxic relationships and also shield you from bad vibes as you develop stronger boundaries throughout the year.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Angel Aura Quartz

Prepare for some shifts to take place when it comes to how you conduct your relationships, Cancer. Relationships may be complicated, as you are transforming partnerships this coming year, but don’t fear it this growth is all for the best. An uplifting stone like Angel Aura Quartz (which is clear quartz fused with platinum to create an iridescent, rainbow exterior) is perfect to sooth your soul as you embrace your growing pains and help guide you toward your next steps.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Iolite

2019 is your year to slow down and celebrate your past efforts, so a crystal like Iolite is the perfect companion for you in the coming year. Iolite is great for helping you shift your perspective and appreciate what you have, so use it to see the wonderful gifts you earned and feel gratitude for them. Allow this crystal to remind you to reflect on how you’ve arrived in the positive place that you are in because it’s truly a time to celebrate.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Amazonite

Your inner values are shifting, making way for new views and ideals. Change is a good thing, but it can be uncomfortable. A crystal like Amazonite is a super helpful tool for anyone embarking on a fresh chapter in their life. It promotes courage and strength, and is overall soothing to the spirit in the midst of transitions which will help make your shifts in 2019 a lot smoother.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Rose Quartz

Emotional and mental self care is going to be a theme for you this year, Libra, so make sure you prioritize it and indulge in it, and heal your heart and mind by taking time off from work. An ultra loving, compassion building crystal like Rose Quartz is a classic yet very effective heart healer. It can also help you to release emotional pain that you’ve been harbouring and forgive yourself and others as you heal old wounds.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Aragonite

The one lesson 2019 will teach you, is that you don’t always have to win every argument, find ways to harmoniously resolve matters. Aragonite is the perfect stone to help bring forth a calming, anxiety reducing energy of acceptance, which will help you navigate disagreements and other issues from a much more grounded place. You’ll be doing some major growth this year, and embracing the grounded vibe of Aragonite can help.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Carnelian

It’s time to boost your confidence, by healing the relationship you have with yourself. Carnelian is a stone as fiery as your ruling element and it’s an ideal tool for boosting confidence and creative energy. It also helps naturally guide you toward making positive choices and changes in your life, and will increase your self-respect something you’ll be working toward throughout the year.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Citrine

2019 is the time to believe in yourself and be courageous, don’t let fear hold you back, stand proud and strong as you assert yourself and move towards your desires. When it comes to dispelling fears and self-doubts, Citrine is a really powerful stone but it’s also great for helping motivate you to take action and manifest your dreams, which is what you’ll be all about in 2019.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Lapis Lazuli

This year is about quality over quantity when it comes to partnerships, friends may come and go, but this year you are filling your loving cup with good people who mutually support you, as you revamp your relations and separate the wheat from the chaff, the brilliantly Blue Lapis Lazuli which aligns well with your creative, intellectual vibe will be extra helpful in that it encourages truth and integrity in partnerships and keeps you grounded in the practical when making decisions.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Tiger’s Eye

2019 isn’t the time to be passive, stand up for yourself and make sure you receive the proper amount of money for your hard work, you earned it. Speak up on your own behalf with the help of the ever-powerful Tiger’s Eye crystal, which banishes self-doubt and fears. This crystal will help you to harness your inner tiger and get what you want and not be afraid to ask for it.

Establishing Contact With Spirit

medium.jpg

One of the goals of anyone walking a spiritual path is the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and communicating with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like any sense, even trackers can see more in their environment than I ever will be able to because they have sharpened their senses and they know what to look for. This is a very complex topic and one that I have been working on developing over the years. Where you are now is not where you are ultimately going to be. The amazing thing about the third eye is that it is like a muscle; the more you work it the stronger it will become and the more it will grow. It is a very powerful part of our composition and the more we interact with it and train it, the stronger it will get.

Stages of Spiritual Contact

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them. The best way to start training your nervous system is through shocking it. Go stand in a cold breeze, shiver, get the chills, get goose bumps and when you do focus on the sensation that your skin is experiencing. Many find they are pretty numb in this world. Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

When you are at this stage of the game you really want to experiment. Unblock your third eye, stimulate it, help it to grow and awaken. Using your imagination can go a long way in helping to crack the shell of the third eye and open up your natural skills and abilities. Start by playing with your imagination and letting it grow. A lot of people experience closing of their third eye because they are told it is all fantasy. The third eye is directly connected to your imagination. Start by getting back in touch with your imagination and use it to help you when doing spiritual communication exercises and simulations.

Stage Two -Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits/entities trying to interact with you. At this stage…

~ You might hear the same song over and over again
~ You might notice things in your environment move
~ You might see shadows and orbs
~ You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
~ You may experience strange smells
~ You might develop strange tastes
~ You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
~ You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
~ You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
~ You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Practising and working with your third eye will make it stronger and help you awaken your natural abilities. Imperative you believe in yourself too. Believing you can do it is paramount. This is a concept that is true of many areas, believing you can do it will drive you and take you there. It all starts with your beliefs and ends with your desire to push yourself to achieve.

Stage Three –Awakening/ Moderate Sensations – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are having success with your daily exercises and starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself. You will….

~Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled
~You might see shadows and shapes around you
~You might hear words or phrases
~You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
~You might have moments were you feel them
~You will have dreams of your companions
~You will have lucid experiences with them
~You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them
~Your senses will begin to stabilize
~You will have routines with your companions and know how they work
~Have moments where you see them very clearly
~Have moments where you can hear them very clearly
~Have moments where you can sense them very clearly

At this stage of the game you have a good handle on yourself and you should experiment. Try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself. The exercises that you are performing push them deeper. This means that you should recreate the exercises daily and see where they take you. If you practise and push yourself your third eye will grow and you will awaken new layers of skills and abilities. The more you practise the better you become, the more committed you are to your exercises the stronger your skills will become. Find one or two exercises or a consistent routine that works for you and really push it. Try new things but stay true to your routine.

Stage Three -Strong Sensations – At this stage your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and your chakras are in a higher state of arousal. They work together to interpret the energies that are coming in through the third eye. At this stage of the game you have a pretty good handle on what you can do, but you will want to develop an exercise plan to strengthen your skills and also work with your third eye to embrace and open new skills. At this stage…

~ You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
~ You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing
~ You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed
~ You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images
~ You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them
~ You are able to feel and sense their energy
~ You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
~ You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
~ Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities
~ Able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk
~ Feel them and touch them

At this stage you can have a lot of fun! Stay on track with your routine but really experiment. Have fun with your gifts and skills and see how far you can go. Set goals for yourself and push those goals. There is a lot of fun that you can have with them and a lot that you can grow and develop. The more you push things the stronger your skills will be and the more fun you can have with them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you have acquired a third eye that is working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing. You have a really good grasp of what is going on in the spiritual world. At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them. At this stage…

~ You know who is who and can tell whose energy signature belongs to which companion
~ You can tell when you are being touched, stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
~ You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
~ You can taste them and you know how each of your companions tastes
~ You can smell them, if you have a spiritual olfactory sense you will know the aromas that your companions have
~ You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences
~ You can tell who is shifting the environment around you and why they are doing this
~ You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
~ You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
~ You can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
~ You can tell the difference between them
~ You can have physical stimulations from them
~ You can receive messages and inspirations from them and hear their stories

Beyond this the sky’s the limit, you can develop your skills and it is an infinite well of possibilities. They say the ancient Egyptians had 365 senses… we have 5 known to us and about 20 psychic ones that can be categorized, though there are much more. Be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a hell of a lot lying dormant and asleep in us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.
