This weekend we can start to feel the completion of the solar eclipse in Capricorn where the energy was about rolling our sleeves up and getting practical to get the tasks completed with the steady determination of the goat. This weekend brings completion to that whole cycle with the Super Blood Moon Eclipse on Monday rising in Leo.
Leo -Element Fire/Colour Golden Yellow/Planet-Sun:
This last cycle has really been about clearing on so many levels-Now with the super moon in Leo we will be shown just how hard we have worked on all this clearing and how determined we really were?
Lets see what emerges out of the shadows at the eclipse, ready to be brought to completion to commence a brand new cycle.
Leo is the zodiac of courage, leadership and compassion with such a generous heart. This leo energy is heralding in the new year to prepare us to SHINE and Rise up to the challenges and aspirations that maybe presenting themselves to us. Leo is a majestic energy and will give us a boost to realise our true potential and see this in a different light.
Look to where you feel admired and in your glory. Do you feel it’s time to shine in any areas of your life? Where is the light shining on you to emerge from? Align to the courage and take pride in your souls calling . This moon is not about playing it small or making the excuses to avoid the call to step up.This is the time to step up and be seen. If you need support feel into your solar plexus place your hands here and check in with your inner sun and face any fears.
How does this feel? Does it feel strong and bright -glowing with golden light? Or does it feel blocked, dull, tired and anxious? This is your chakra of your inner power, your self worth and your inner fire.
To support this chakra at this moon wear yellow, eat more yellow nutrition and include flower essences like crab apple to build up your confidence, Aspen to banish away any unknown fears and anxieties and Buttercup to restore your inner glow and lift you up.

Now is the potent time to set your intentions and desires in motion. for the whole year ahead.. 2018 was a tough year for many of us, with pockets of huge challenge, discernment and faith being tested. Let’s align to 2019 with the steadfast assurance of the goat, by taking control of our own lives with the efficiency and ambitous nature of the goat without being too serious and allowing the joy in life to lead our way.
Capricorn is symbolised by the mountain goat, these curious, loving animals,have immense determination, they can scale the mountain terrain without fear for they know their way, they take it slow and steady and enjoy the journey until they reach the top of the mountain. Take the goats advice, go slow, stay curious and you will reach the peak of your desire and dreams and hopefully enjoy the journey the beautiful view too.

Earthly Beauty Ritual
As we are in the season of winter it is still important to keep your self-care rituals slow and mindful, not to exert too much energy through exercise but keep to a gentle yin approach to keep the blood flowing and maintain vitality wothout being too sedentary walking, yoga and pilates are perfect examples for winter wellness.
Tend to your body with naturopathic medicine -I spray my body as soon as i wake up with Rhythm of Beauty Sacred Oil (magnesium oil)natures traquiliser to my lower back and tummy, including my underarms for a natural deodorant that will also ensure a good surge of transdermal magnesium that will maintain my health, encourage natural sleep , decrease stress and alkaline my body.
As our skin is mostly layered up and covered in the winter, I encourage my clients to increase their dry skin body brushing which helps to move the lymph, exfoliate dead skin cells and brighten the skin whilst boosting the immunity of the skin too. This provides a perfect base to massage the skin with our seasonal body lotion with warming black pepper and flower essences to awaken the skin, take down any puffiness and inflammation for the body and the face.
Nutrition -I do not promote the new year detox ,as it can take it’s toll on our bodies in the winter to detox and drain our energy reserves that maybe already low. Instead eat clean, drink herbal teas, omit caffiene, dairy and red meat which are all acidic, enjoy warming green soups, and try some celery shots with a pinch of cayenne pepper to kick start the metabolism first thing in the morning.

I begin this new moon with the above quote, for Scorpio energy always ushers in dynamic change, and when we look back over the year, what a year of clearing it has been.Destruction has played out in many people’s lives, and I have heard people say this has been one of the hardest years they have been through. With all challenges we are faced with , it’s always good to be mindful and look at the teachings each challenge has brought in, usually there is a gift to be unraveled, such as gaining greater discernment, to release fear and align more to love, or to just live in the present as much as we possibly can.
This new moon is all about rebirth and allowing the new to unfold with grace and ease, so much has been going on behind the scenes with the Venus retrograde through Scorpio and now through Libra.Have you felt this ? A need to re-value your relationships, including the relationship with self?This retrograde value and worth have been a key theme. If there has been an imbalance in relationships with all taking and no giving, this has been revealed and relationships have been turbulent or ended.
Some people say if a relationship doesn’t make it through a Scorpio Venus Retrograde then it wasn’t meant to last.
Allow the alchemical vibe of Scorpio to bring regeneration and renewal into all areas of your life. where there is destruction there is always rebirth, so look within to your emotions with this watery inuitive and healing new moon and see what makes you feel inspired at this time and e you have been set free and align to the new aspirations that maybe coming in, listen to your inner guidance and take mastership of your brand new cycle at this potent new moon.

Taurus Full Moon is a earthly energy bringing completion and a brand new cycle in how we relate to the earth and our own body care.
Taurus is ruled by Venus and with Venus going retrograde to mid November, our health, love, relationships and finances are being heavily highlighted.
Earth needs tending to, it needs good healthy soil that is fertile to grow the seeds of new beginnings. Your body is the mirror of the earth and cries out for physical, emotional,mental and spiritual nourishment, we can’t be wholly healthy one any one of these is neglected.
Taurus energy brings up what we value in our life and with the sun in watery Scorpio what we value may have hidden depths, that need to be recognised and honoured . It’s a potent full moon for grounding transformation and tying up lose ends in a practical organised manner-. Huge shifts can be achieved with this water/Scorpio-sun -earth/Taurus-moon energy as Scorpio heightens emotions and intuitive action which Taurus has the capacity to enable it to come to fruition in a grounded manner.
This is also a good time to look at the home and where you feel at home,? Does clutter need clearing in your space, do parts of your home need more flow and more of a seasonal vibe? or you may feel inspired to create a cosy corner to hunker down in restore your energy, or get outside and clear the garden, creating space for the new to come through, or read journal, or cook a meal for friends and family, whatever it is,Taureans adors their home, so make this time all ’ Hygge’ and tend to your self care, and absorb the nurturing energy your body and soul crave as we journey towards Halloween/Samhain the time of death and letting things go in our lives that do not serve us to our highest potential.
