Virgo Season

With Virgo season upon us we’re almost halfway through the zodiac Wheel of the Year! Once you get 50% through something you’ve learnt a lot and you really want to start perfecting it.  This is the energy of Virgo season, supporting us to refine ourselves in order to better serve. Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac, which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time. You can check this out for a quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology. Sidereal Virgo - September 16th to November 4th The Sun actually rises in the constellation of Virgo from 16th September through to 4th November.  Virgo is a massive constellation and so its season runs for more than a month and a half. And, yes if you read up about sidereal astrology, these dates are not set in stone, over almost three quarters of a century the dates will change by one day, in accordance with precession. So Who Needs to Really Read this? People who are born between September 15th (NB see above comment about the dates changing; what this means is depending on how old the person is they may have been born into Leo season even if they were born on the 15th September) and November 4th.  Being born between these dates means that your ‘Sun’ sign is in Virgo and

Leo Season

We’ve been nurtured and restored during Cancer season, helping us to recover from the physical and mental activity of the first quarter of the astrological year. We are ready now then to take ourselves out into the world, to create and to express who we are, to get our Leo on! Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac, which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time. You can check this out for a quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology. Sidereal Leo - August 9th to September 15th The Sun actually rises in the constellation of Leo from 9th August through to 15th September.  Leo is a fairly large constellation so its season runs for a bit more than 5 weeks. And, yes if you read up about sidereal astrology, these dates are not set in stone, over almost three quarters of a century the dates will change by one day, in accordance with precession. So Who Needs to Really Read this? People who are born between August 8th (NB see above comment about the dates changing; what this means is depending on how old the person is they may have been born into Leo season even if they were born on the 8th August) and September 15th. Being born between these dates means that your ‘Sun’ sign is in Cancer and

How to have the best Sleep ever!

How to have the best sleep ever Sleep is one of the most democratic, freely available and effective forms of health insurance. Professor Matthew Walker. Unfortunately modern Western society tends to view sleep as being, at best, something that is at the bottom of our never-ending list of priorities, and at worst, something that’s only for wimps!  Add to that an ongoing global pandemic of fear and anxiety – feeling like life as we knew it has left home and all that remains is stress, boredom and nothing to look forward to. Good sleep seems to be more elusive than ever. And yet, it is SO important. Along with what we put into our bodies - namely food and water - good quality sleep is essential if we want to maintain our wellbeing and live long, healthy lives. Our sleep quality has an impact on our ability to concentrate and make decisions. In turn this can then increase the risk of incidents and accidents and of course it can have a negative effect on all aspects of our lives – work, relationships, motivation to exercise and eat right. Even worse are the effects of chronic sleep deprivation, which include increased incidence of depression and anxiety, as well as numerous other physical health conditions such as heart disease, weight gain, diabetes and infertility. Most worrying is the reduction in the effectiveness of

Cancer Season

Now that we’ve exhausted ourselves with all the buzzing around (mentally if not physically) of the Gemini Season, it’s time to come back home for some nourishing, protective nurturance during Cancer Season. Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac, which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time. You can check this out for a quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology. Sidereal Cancer - July 18th to August 8th The Sun actually rises in the constellation of Cancer from 18th July through to 8th August.  Cancer is a small constellation so its season runs for only 3 weeks. And, yes if you read up about sidereal astrology, these dates are not set in stone, over almost three quarters of a century the dates will change by one day, in accordance with precession. So Who Needs to Really Read this? People who are born between July 17th (NB see above comment about the dates changing; what this means is depending on how old the person is they may have been born into Cancer season even if they were born on the 17th July) and August 8th. Being born between these dates means that your ‘Sun’ sign is in Cancer and you identify as a Cancer. You most likely see yourself as gentle, caring, sensitive and brimming with empathy! People who know their astrology

Gemini Season

And just like that we have arrived in the buzzy, talkative changeable season of Gemini! Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac, which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time. You can check this out for a quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology. Sidereal Gemini - June 21st to July 17th The Sun actually rises in the constellation of Gemini from 21st June through to 17th July.  Gemini is a pretty ‘average’ sized constellation so its season runs for almost 4 weeks. And, yes if you read up about sidereal astrology, these dates are not set in stone, over almost three quarters of a century the dates will change in accordance with precession. So Who Needs to Really Read this? People who are born between June 20th (NB see above comment about the dates changing; what this means is that depending on how old the person is they may have been born into Gemini season even if they were born on the 20th June and not the 21st) and July 17th. Being born between these dates means that your ‘Sun’ sign is in Gemini and you identify as a Gemini. You most likely see yourself as curious, quick, witty and fun! People who know their astrology chart and can identify that either their Moon or their Ascendant (Rising) is in Gemini.

Taurus Season

Welcome to the grounded, pleasure loving season of Taurus! Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac, which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time.

Sidereal Taurus - May 13th to June 19th The Sun actually rises in the constellation of Taurus from 13th May through to 19th June.  Taurus is a reasonably large constellation so this is for more than 5 weeks. And, yes if you read up about sidereal astrology, these dates are not set in stone, over a period of 72 years the dates will change in accordance with precession. So Who Needs to Really Read this? People who are born between May 12th and June 19th (NB see above comment about the dates changing; what this means is that depending on how old the person is they may have been born into Taurus season even if they were born on the 12th May and not the 13th)– that means that their ‘Sun’ sign is in Taurus and they identify as a Taurus. In other words they see themselves as patient, reliable and productive. People who know their astrology chart and can identify that either their Moon or their Ascendant (Rising) is in Taurus.

How to get in touch with your Spiritual side

How to get in touch with your spiritual side How "spiritual" are you? Do you have a regular spiritual practise?  What do either of those questions even mean to you? Well, I'm guessing that if you decided to read this Blog you would like to bring some more spirituality into your life!  The good news is that you're about to learn some entirely practical ways to get in touch with your spiritual side, and once you have opened that connection it will be much easier for you to relate to and feel 'spiritual'. Connection Energy I call your spiritual side your "Connection Energy".  This is the last of the 7 Essential Energies and is more commonly known as the 7th or Crown Chakra.  I call it Connection Energy because to me it is all about connecting ourselves to the collective energy of humanity, connecting to all other living beings in whatever way is meaningful to us, and also connecting to any higher powers that you may believe in.  What do I mean by higher powers? I mean Gods, Ancestors, Spirits, Universal Energy and your Higher Self or Soul.  What I mean, is really whatever higher powers mean to you... The centre of your connection energy in the physical body is on the very top of your head. This energy is on the same vibration as the colour white on the

Clean Eating Part 2 – Organic Food

[Originally published 24th July 2017] So by now you have read all about giving up sugar and avoiding additives, and if you haven't, well catch up peeps - click on the links!  Clean eating - or getting in touch with my inner hippie - was one of the biggest changes that I have made to my life in 2017!  It was the first year I ever told my parents NOT to buy me an easter egg!  Exploring all the alternative grocery options in my local and not so local area was fun, as was beginning to cook a lot more stuff from scratch.  My kids both love pie and I can make a great family pie that they will gobble up!  Yes of course it takes me a lot more time than just whacking a store bought one in the oven but I know exactly what is in it. In this part 2 Blog I am talking about buying organic.  This is something, that to be honest, I had always scoffed at before because I had heard all the research about the there being little, if any, added nutritional value in organic produce.  This remains true.  However, even though you may not get more vitamins and minerals by eating a product that is, or is made with, organically grown matter, you can be sure that you will get LESS chemicals. In

Aries Season

I’m just getting this Blog in on time before Aries season is actually over! Please do be aware that I work with the sidereal zodiac which considers astrology from the actual placement of the stars in the current time. A quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology The word sidereal means "of, or calculated by, the stars". Sounds pretty obvious when we're talking about astrology doesn't it?! This is the way that our ancient ancestors first began to practise astronomy and astrology - by looking at the stars, the planets, the constellations themselves. So how is this different to the standard practise of astrology that most people are used to? Well, around 2000 years ago the stars matched the seasons and at the Equinox in March (Spring in the northern hemisphere) the Sun moved into the constellation of Aries. Tropical Western (aka 'common or garden'!) astrology has continued to view the astrological calendar in this way, ie. the March Equinox is fixed as the beginning of Aries season and everything else follows from that. However, in the 2nd century BC, a Greek astronomer called Hipparchus, discovered that there is a tiny but gradual shift in the orientation of the Earth's axis of rotation, called precession. What this means is that over thousands of years the view of the stars from the Earth has shifted so that at the March Equinox the Sun

How to improve your Intuition, some insights

How to improve your Intuition, some insights Intuition.  We all have it.  We don't all use it.  How about you? Ever had that gut feel about something but then let your logical mind take over the decision making process, only to find out later that your gut feel was spot on?! I'm sure every human being on the planet can relate to that scenario. So, do you want to know how to improve your intuition? Like everything else, intuition is energy, and it is intricately connected with all other energies in the universe.  In western culture however, this great power that we all have is dismissed, derided, and discarded most of the time. Intuition is one aspect of the 6th essential energy, often called the Third Eye, or 6th Chakra, but what I like to refer to as your Insight Energy.  On the colour spectrum this energetic vibration appears as a deep blue-purple colour, often called indigo. Just like any other energy your Insight Energy can be stimulated or blocked, balanced or imbalanced.  To find out how to improve your intuition, read on!  But before you do that, tune in - what does your intuition tell you about this activity, is it something you should do now or not? What you need to know about your Insight Energy Having balanced Insight Energy means: Intuition Attunement to your predictive abilities and
