Pisces New Moon - Dreamy magic or a tough time of procrastination

Pisces New Moon - Dreamy magic or a tough time of procrastination

On the 9th of March (in the UK) we are joined by the Pisces New Moon.

This is a particularly powerful month as the New Moon is a Super Moon (meaning it’s closer to the Earth), and we will also have solar and lunar eclipses which represent endings and beginnings.

The theme of endings and beginnings is increased as Pisces is the last astrological sign in the astrological year.

Pisces asks you to consider:

“What do you know to be true?

Pisces is symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the duality that lies within us. Key words include:

Once Upon a Time: A Wicked Witch with Cabin Fever

Once Upon a Time: A Wicked Witch with Cabin Fever

The Following Story Really Happened, No Names Have Been Changed To Protect The Innocent Or Otherwise...

It was just another day at my practice, I had a diary full of characters looking for answers, and I was ready to work my magic as I had been doing for decades, but somehow today felt more magical than usual...

I go into the waiting room looking for my next client, but there's no one there. The receptionist explains this session will be done via Skype.

'Hello is it Ms Wicked Witch of the East?'

‘No my dear it's pronounced Wick-ay, it's a silent 'd', I've no idea what my parents were thinking, but it's better than ‘Maleficent’ that they were considering, it’s so common these days’.

‘Oh I'm sorry’, I say blushing at my mistake, ‘How can I help you today?’

‘Well my Dear, ever since a terrible incident a few years ago, I’ve not been able to go outside.’

Once Upon a Time: Red Riding Hood - Dating a Wolf

The following story really happened, no names have been changed to protect the innocent or otherwise...

It was just another day at my practice, I had a diary full of characters looking for answers, and I was ready to work my magic as I had been doing for decades, but somehow today felt more magical than usual...

‘Ms Hood, please take a seat’, I said as I welcomed my first client of the day into my room.

‘Red, call me Red, my real name is Bethany, but my Grandma always called me Red and it's kinda stuck.’

‘How can I help you today Red?’

‘Oh I just don't know really, I'm not even sure why I'm here’ she trailed off…

I was just about to ask a question, when she wailed:

Once Upon a Time: Snow White - Bored and Beautiful

Once Upon a Time: Snow White - Bored and Beautiful

The following story really happened, no names have been changed to protect the innocent or otherwise...

It was just another day at my practice, I had a diary full of clients looking for answers, and I was ready to work my magic as I had been doing for decades, but somehow today felt more magical than usual.


When I first saw my client Ms S. White, I was instantly struck by her beauty. She was breath-taking, but as I looked closer, I could see a deep sadness in her eyes.

She appeared to glide into my room, and she gracefully sat down, crossing her ankles in such a way, it looked as if she was posing for a magazine shoot.

‘Rebecca’ she said in such a gentle and melodious voice, that I imagined she could summon the birds and animals, ‘I’ve come to see you because I feel like something is missing from my life, I feel like I want more, but I can’t really put it into words’.

Essential Oils and The Moon Phases

Essential Oils and The Moon Phases

As we Journey through the moon cycle, you follow the Journey of Growth, descent and re-birth.

We've been following this journey, and aligning ourselves with the moon energies, so that we can support, grow and refine our manifestation intentions.

As we move through each stage of the Journey, we can use essential oils to connect at a deeper level with the energy available to us.

Here are the oils that I've chosen for each stage of the Journey they are best used in an oil burner or a diffuser. - PLEASE NOTE: I am not an aromatherapist and share this knowledge as my own experience.

The Aquarius New Moon - Embrace your eccentricities and start your revolution

The Aquarius New Moon - Embrace your eccentricities and start your revolution

On the 8th of January (in the UK) we are joined by the Aquarius New Moon.

I particularly like this moon, as I’m an Aquarian, although I only just make the date by the skin of my teeth, I am very much as ‘typical’ Aquarian – whatever one of those may be!

Aquarius, also known as the Water Bearer, asks you to consider:

“What wisdom can you share?

Although an Air sign, Aquarius is also known as the Water Bearer. She is often depicted on her knee, pouring water from her jug, symbolising being of service as she freely shares her knowledge by pouring the knowledge over humanity. Key words include:

The Capricorn New Moon - a boring old goat, or is there something more this new moon can offer you?

The Capricorn New Moon - a boring old goat, or is there something more this new moon can offer you?

On the 10th of January we are joined by the Capricorn New Moon.

Capricorn, also known as the Water Goat, asks you to consider:

“Who are you in the world?”

Often people think of Capricorn as being the boring (and possibly stinky) old goat, it’s true that they are responsible and reliable, and like structure, their key words include:

A Ritual For The New Moon - A time to get clear on your vision and set your intentions

A Ritual For The New Moon - A time to get clear on your vision and set your intentions

The New Moon Is The Perfect Time To Rest and tap into your intuition

During this time you can add power to your intentions to create and bring forth your vision by completing a simple ceremony/ritual.

Completing a ritual creates the feeling that something special is happening, it gives magical intention to your wishes. It gets the power of the universe behind creating your deepest desires and a little extra help never went amiss…

Here’s an outline of one I like to do.



You will need:

1 bowl, one suitable to hold water
A little sea or mineral salt
1 bowl, suitable to burn paper in (optional)
Sage for smudging, or suitable cleansing incense
A crystal of your choice
1 candle
A paper and pen

 

Step 1. Clear your energy

Imagine standing under a silver waterfall and allow all negative energies to be washed away.

Step 2. Create a sacred space

Find a quiet place to sit, declutter and clean, you might like to place crystals or other special items around you, or cleanse the room with some incense.

Step 3. Become present

Become fully present in your body.

Become aware of every part of your body.

Bring awareness to your breathing.


Step 4. Connect to the elements

Earth: Hold your chosen crystal
Fire: Light your candle – I have 2″ candles for this purpose
Air: Light your sage leaves or your incense
Water: Fill a small bowl with water and add some sea salt to it to represent the oceans


Step 5. State your desires

Write down your wishes and desires on a piece of paper.

When you have written them all down, pass the paper through the smudge or incense smoke to clear away any unseen blockages or obstacles. Continue to do this until the energy around your desires feel lighter.

Step 6. Release your desires to the universe

State your wishes and desires out loud for the universe to hear. Feel your desires in your body.

Breathe deep into your heart and declare “I am ready to receive. And it is so.”

Step 7. Let go

Next you can either burn your desires, bury them in the ground or sleep with them under your pillow – do whichever feel right for you.

Step 8. Assimilate

Sit in silence for a while and see if any inspiration comes. You may even want to journal around your thoughts.

Let your candle burn itself out.
