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

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. You can check this out for a quick 101 on Sidereal Astrology. 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. If your Moon is in Taurus this means that you need to

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

New Year Lunar Eclipse Meditation and Ritual

We honour, respect and give our thanks to the spirits and guardians of this place, where we will carry out this New Year Lunar Eclipse ceremony of meditation and ritual, as well as its traditional custodians past, present and future. The January 2020 full moon is in the sign of Cancer, at the start of a new year and a new decade. Not only is it a full moon but also a lunar eclipse, which occurs when the earth lies between the moon and the sun blocking the moon from reflecting the sun’s light. It is a penumbrial lunar eclipse on this occasion which means there is not a perfect line up of the planets (stars) and only part of the moon’s bright orb will be shadowed. The moon loves being in Cancer as the ruling planet of this sign, and in 2019 there was not actually a full moon in Cancer. This, combined with the extra energy of the eclipse, will result in a very potent lunar energy available to us. Cancer is a sensitive water sign and rules emotion, especially the heart, as well as family relationships. The releasing energy of the full moon should mean that working with it will help to heal hearts and balance family and home dynamics.  Cancer also governs self care so it is the perfect time to set intentions around looking after

Setting Intentions for 2019 with the January New Moon

I much prefer to talk about intentions for the new year, rather than resolutions!  The word 'intention' to me has a much deeper, internal, more feminine energy than 'resolution', which sounds so external and hard! The best time for writing intentions for the new year is arguably with the first new moon of the year - as this energy always supports us to the sow the seeds of what we want to reap in the future. I recommend a 3 list approach to writing your intentions for the new year, I discuss this approach in this video and also the full Blog, which was published by Sivana East. I also suggest taking a very holistic approach of looking at your life with regards to what intentions you want to set.  To make this easier you might like to consider the Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing aspects of Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Our first Yin Yoga, Meditation and Reiki Circle of 2019 will give you the opportunity to truly release what is no longer serving you, providing the space to bring in what you want to bring in for the year. May 2019 bring you Peace & Freedom, Love & Happiness and Health & Wellbeing!

Festive Summer Solstice & Full Moon

This time of year, especially in Australia where we tend to run things on the calendar year, we really feel like everything is coming to an end and hopefully most of us also feel like we have the chance of fresh new beginnings with the upcoming new year.  Summer feels like it starts in January and any hot weather at the end of the previous year is just warming us up!  Many people go like crazy to get everything done ‘before Christmas’ because we really have this sense of an ending. Summer Solstice This weekend we have the Summer Solstice on Saturday and the Full Moon on Sunday (its exact time of fullness is early in the morning on Sunday so you could think of it as Saturday night).  And then it’s Christmas Day on Tuesday.  So, we are really being supported by the universe in this sense of things coming to a close over the next week.  This gives you a great opportunity to work out exactly what it is that you want to let go of from 2018 and plan what exactly it is that you want to bring into your life in 2019. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year – the day that we have the most hours of daylight – and spiritually is a day to really step outside of yourself.  Express yourself in the external world, even
