April’s Pink Full Moon

Libria Full Moon Readings.jpg

This month’s Full Moon falls in the sign of Libra on 19th, we also had the last Full Moon in this sign back in March. This why you will see this Moon referred to as double Full Moon in Libra because its quiet rare to have two Full Moons in the same star sign during a year.

So the theme this month is around relationships and what is being kept hidden, this can be unconsciously or consciously and looking at your interactions with your friends, partners & family, paying attention to your feelings with these people that you are close to in your life and if need be addressing the balance within these relationship, maybe asking yourself whether you are putting someone’s feeling and wants above yourself and your own needs and happiness.

Librans are known to be all about balance and justice, it can at times be hard for them to decide what they want, but when they do, they give there all and they will defend those close to them to the hilt. They value their relationships and are often very positive in nature seeing their cup as half full; they make good friends and make those close to them feel like they matter.

Do you feel that you matter are you questioning your relationships at this time, or maybe something needs re-addressing for you to be able to move forward from issues in the past.

This is a good time for new beginnings to take action and try something new and start making solid plans for the future and take charge of our lives. The good news is at the moment we have no major planets in retrograde so things should now start to pick up and go well, so get focused and find the courage to set the wheels in motion and start manifesting.

The Death Card & Transition

Death Card

 

In all my 12 month tarot readings there is always a transition period this is shown when the death card appears, many people get worried or confused when this shows up in their reading, it’s a positive thing unless of course you really don’t like change, one thing for certain is nothing can never stay the same, we all need to progress on our journey or learn new things and experience new circumstances to grow.

When the universe begins the process of re moving what no longer serves our best purpose there tends to be an emotional reaction. It is best at this time to try and go with the flow and let go of your expectations so that the universe has room to deliver, not all changes will be major sometimes little adjustments are needed to put us on the right track.

It’s during the bad times when we are often tested the most, but this is when most of us we grow spiritually and emotionally. If you have been struggling with some of the symptoms listed below, just know that there is an ending and you will soon be ready for your new beginning. Whether we’re moving, changing jobs or ending relationships, transitions can bring up feelings that can be hard to deal with at times.

Here are the most common reasons we go through change.

  • Spiritual growth
  • Career change
  • Love & relationship changes
  • Home moves
  • Becoming a parent

Here are symptoms one may experience at the beginning of a transitional phase.

  • Confusion about which choice to make or direction to take in life
  • Feeling unusually down, overly tired or sluggish
  • Not having good time management skills, when you’re normally on top of things
  • Freaking out over a situation you thought was no longer an issue
  • Moodiness
  • Knowing that something is missing in life, but you can’t put your finger on it
  • Feelings of lethargy or boredom
  • Constantly dwelling about something in a negative manner

There are ways to know when you are coping with changes well.

  • You start getting rid of things or people that doesn’t match your vibe
  • Your intuition suddenly becomes stronger
  • Your little psychic predictions start happening
  • You begin to add new and exciting things to your daily routine
  • Having faith in your future
  • Self-confidence increases and you believe in yourself more
  • You want to stop unhealthy habits
  • You start going out more or accept invites to events you would normally avoid
  • Your motivation returns
  • You find yourself smiling more

I often get asked the question, why am I having so much trouble letting go even though I know it’s done!

During a breakup, for example, we can be aware of missing our ex partner, by asking ourselves why this is the case when the relationship wasn’t that great, can often reveal under lining anxieties or fears of being alone, of maybe its financial instability, or feeling less brave about going it alone than we first thought.  By acknowledging what it is will then help you to come to terms with it.

Once we know why, we can figure out a plan of action, at least then you’re not just moping about. The challenge is to acknowledge when something no longer serves us. It is a journey of healing in which we have to accept the past is now in the past and begin the process of figuring out what’s next to move forward.

When we struggle with change, it’s often because we can’t see past the problem. Once you have a plan of action you will be surprised at your inner strength and your ability once focused to make the changes. You may also be surprised at who wants to support you with good advice, a job, or give you the space to find yourself again.

By spending a bit of time being kind to ourselves can lift our spirits, heal us and give us new perspective. Having good friends who are there to support you when things get difficult.

Once you figure out where you want to go, and what can you do to get there. You are never helpless to change your situation just try altering your approach to it.

Remember that every end is a new beginning, one that we should embrace with an open mind and heart.

Maybe you would like a Tarot reading to help you through a difficult time or transition, it’s often a small price to pay for some clarity or peace or mind.

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.

What’s your Celtic tree sign

12523887_1357362320956019_8837497904347460810_n.jpg

The Celtic Zodiac is based on the cycles of the moon. The year is divided into 13 lunar months with a tree assigned to each month. The Druids believed that the time of our births is pivotal to the formation of our personality and behaviour and the Celtic Zodiac was developed from their knowledge of earth cycles and their reverence for the sacred knowledge held by trees. They had a profound connection with trees and believed them to be the vessels of infinite wisdom.

Find out how the Celtic druids interpreted your tree sign and which tree signs they said you were compatible with….

BIRCH
If you were born under the energy of the Birch you are highly driven and can easily become caught up in your own zeal, drive and ambition. You are always reaching for more, seeking better horizons and obtaining higher aspirations. The Druids attributed this to your time of birth, which is a time of year shrouded by darkness, so consequently you are always stretching out to find the light. Birch signs (like the tree itself) are tolerant, tough, and resilient. You are cool-headed and a natural-born ruler, often taking command when a situation calls for leadership. When in touch with your softer side, you also bring beauty in otherwise barren spaces, brightening up a room with you guile, and charming crowds with your quick wit. Celtic tree astrology Birch signs are compatible with Vine signs and Willow signs.

ROWAN
Celtic tree astrology recognises this sign as the philosopher of all the zodiac signs. You are a keen-minded visionary with high ideals. Your thoughts are original and creative, so much so that others often misunderstand you. This sometimes makes you aloof when interacting with others. Beneath a cool exterior, you are burning within from your passionate ideals and this inner passion provides motivation for you as you make your way through life. You have a natural ability to transform situations and people around you. You are influential in a quiet way and others look to you for your unique perspective. Rowan pairs well with Ivy and Hawthorn signs.

ASH
You are a free thinker. Imaginative, intuitive and naturally artistic, you see the world in water-colour purity. You might appear moody and withdrawn at times, but only because your inner landscape is in constant motion. You are inspired by nature and, in turn, you inspire all who you associate with. People seek you out for your enchanting personality. Art, writing especially poetry, science and spiritual matters are areas that strongly interest you. You are in a constant state of self-renewal and you rarely place a value on what others think about you. Ash signs partner well with Willow and Reed signs.

ALDER
You are a natural-born pathfinder, a mover and shaker and you will blaze a trail with fiery passion, often gaining loyal followers to your cause. You are charming and gregarious. You mingle easily and your self-assurance is infectious. You are very focused and you dislike waste. You have the ability to see through superficialities and you don’t suffer fools gladly. You place high value on your time and are motivated by action and results. Alder’s pair well with Hawthorns and Oaks, as well as Birch signs.

WILLOW
Your sign is ruled by the moon so your personality holds hands with many of the mystical aspects of the lunar realm. This makes you intelligent, creative and intuitive (highly psychic people are born under the sign of the Willow). You have a keen understanding of cycles and this means you’re more patient than most tree signs. With your intelligence comes a natural ability to retain knowledge and you often impress your company with the ability to expound on subjects from memory. Those born under the Willow sign are bursting with potential but have a tendency to hold themselves back, for fear of appearing flamboyant or overindulgent. Your powers of perception are what ultimately allow your true nature to shine through and lead you to success in life. Willow signs join well with the Birch and the Ivy.

HAWTHORN
You are not always what you appear to be. You often give off a different persona than the one inside you. Perhaps it’s because of this that you never judge a book by its cover. You are well-adjusted and can adapt to most life situations. This makes you content and gives you the ability to comfort others. You are naturally curious, with an interest in a broad range of topics. You are an excellent listener and people seek you out as someone on whom they can unburden themselves. You have a great sense of humour and a clear understanding of irony. You see the big picture and have sharp insight but it’s typical of you not to give yourself credit for your observations. Hawthorn signs match up nicely with Ash and Rowan’s.

OAK
You have a special strength. You despise injustice and often become a champion for those who do not have a voice … a crusader or a spokesperson for the underdog. Nurturing, generous and helpful, you are a gentle giant among the Celtic zodiac signs. You exude an easy confidence and naturally assume everything will work itself out. You have a deep respect for history and ancestry and you like to impart your knowledge of the past to others. Many people born under the Oak sign become teachers. You have a need for structure and will often go to great lengths to make sure you’re in control. Typically, Oak signs live long, full and happy lives. You enjoy a family setting and you are likely to be involved with social/community networks. Oak signs pair off well with the Ash and Reed, and are known to harmoniously join with Ivy signs too.

HOLLY
This is the regal sign of the Celtic tree zodiac. Noble and high-minded, those born under this sign tend to take on positions of leadership and power. You are comfortable taking on challenges and you overcome obstacles with a rare skill and tact. When you encounter a setback, you simply redouble your efforts. Very seldom are you defeated, which is why many people look up to you and follow you as their leader. You are competitive and ambitious, even in the most casual settings. You can appear arrogant but it’s merely confidence in your own abilities. Once people get to know you, they’ll find you are generous, kind and affectionate. Highly intelligent, you skate through academics where others may struggle. Holly signs may look to Ash and Elder signs for balance and partnership.

HAZEL
You are highly intelligent, organised and efficient. Like the Holly, you are naturally gifted in academia and you excel in the classroom. You’re well-informed and have the ability to retain information which means you are able to recall, recite and expound on subjects you’ve memorised with amazing accuracy. This gift can make you appear like a know it all but you can’t help that you’re genuinely smart and because of your knowledge base, you usually know the right course of action to take. You have an eye for detail you like things to be ‘just so.’ Sometimes this need for order and control can lead to compulsive behaviour if left unchecked. You have a knack for numbers, science and things that utilise your analytical skills. You like rules, although typically it’s you who is making them. The Celtic tree astrology sign of Hazel joins harmoniously with Hawthorn and Rowan’s.

VINE
You were born within the period of autumnal equinox, which makes your personality changeable and unpredictable. You can be full of contradictions and are often indecisive, but it’s because of this that you can see both sides of the story and empathise equally with each. It’s hard for you to pick sides. There are areas in your life that you’re quite sure about, however, and those include the finer things of life like food, wine, music, and art. You have very distinctive taste and a connoisseur of refinement. Luxury agrees with you and you have the ability to turn drab into dramatic beauty. You are charming and elegant and and you maintain a level of class which wins you esteem from a large fan base. Vine signs pair well with Willow and Hazel signs.

IVY
Among other cherished qualities of this sign, the most prized is your ability to overcome all odds. You have a sharp intellect, but more obvious is your compassion and loyalty to others. You have a giving nature, and are always there to lend a helping hand. You were born at the time of the waning sun so life can be difficult for you at times, putting obstacles in your way, but you endure troubling times with silent perseverance and soulful grace. Ivy signs have a tendency to be deeply spiritual and cling to a deep rooted faith that typically sees them through adversity. You are softly-spoken but you have a keen wit. You are charming, charismatic and can hold your own in most social settings. Ivy signs are attracted to the Celtic tree astrology signs of Oak and Ash.

REED
You are the secret keeper of the Celtic tree zodiac signs. You dig deep until you find the real meaning of things and can find the truth hidden beneath layers of distraction. You love a good story and have a tendency to be drawn by gossip, scandal, legend and lore. These tendencies also make you an excellent historian, journalist, detective or archaeologist. You love people because they offer you a diversity of meanings for you to interpret. You are adept at coaxing people to talking to you and can even be manipulative, but you have a strong sense of truth and honour so most of your scheming is harmless. Reed people join well with other Reeds, Ash or Oak signs.

ELDER
You tend to be freedom loving, the wild one of the zodiac. In younger years you may have lived life in the fast lane, perhaps even identified as a thrill seeker. When you were born, the light of the sun was fast fleeting and you take the cue from nature. You’re often looked upon as an outsider because, despite your extrovert nature, you have a tendency to be withdrawn. It’s down to the fact that you’re deeply thoughtful with a philosophical bent. You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful. These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly which you openly share solicited or otherwise. Elder Celtic tree astrology signs fit well with Alder’s and Holly’s.
