Perceptive Insights, Powerful Transformations and Probing the Mysteries – New Moon in Scorpio October 2016


We begin our next Lunar Cycle with Monday’s New Moon in the emotionally deep sign of Scorpio.

Increased Psychic Intuition, Imagination and Compassion

With Scorpio a sign strongly aligned with psychic energy, I love that this New Moon is falling on the 31st October here in Brisbane, as Halloween is often referred to as a day:

“when the veils are thinner between the Worlds”.

The Sun, The Moon and Mercury will all be conjunct in Scorpio on this date and forming a trine with Neptune so you can certainly expect your intuition to be heightened along with your sensitivity and psychic perceptions.

This New Moon can see you feeling deep compassion for others and for the musicians and creatives amongst us, this is a fabulous month for letting your imagination fly.


An Opportunity for Powerful Transformations and Shifts

As the Sun ingressed into Scorpio, Mars (traditional ruler of Scorpio) was conjunct Pluto indicating a month when you have the opportunity to tap into a sense of potent strength and to push forward with anything requiring clearing or transformation within your life.

Harnessing this intense, controlled energy is key.


Unearthing the Mysteries & Taking a Dip with the Psyche

Scorpio loves to get to the bottom of things, so secrets and mysteries could become unearthed and later understood as we travel through until late November.

This is also a fabulous month for anything requiring research or deep analysis.

The Sabian Symbol* for this New Moon is Scorpio 8: “The Silvery Moon Shining Across A Beautiful Gem Of A Lake”, which again is a symbol associated with Halloween and mystery.

If there is anything that has been troubling you from a psychological or emotional perspective this could be a powerful month to venture deep below the waters of your own psyche and to seek help with how to shift through it.

Are you living your life true to your heart and your nature or do you hide your deepest emotions below a façade that you feel is more acceptable, more beautiful?

We are all light and shade. Both are necessary and there is beauty inherent in it all.

Scorpio energy relates to that which is hidden including our own suppressed emotions that we feel are too ugly to express to the World (I.e. jealousy, shame, manipulation, vengeance, resentment, lust, greed, spite).

Often when we suppress energy it grows bigger, whereas if we confront our feelings with honesty and bring them out to the light (I.e. through a conversation with a trusted friend or advisor) they often shrink, loosening their grip on us and we find that there was nothing big and grisly there at all.

There’s a real magical beauty to this symbol and it is a reminder to us all to honour the beauty inherent in all of life and that even in our darkest moments a sense of poignant beauty is available.

Remain receptive to intuitive insights this month that may light your way forward.


Setting Intentions for the Month Ahead

Scorpio energy is great for the following points so you may wish to contemplate this list when deciding what you’d like to focus your intent on for the coming month:

  1. Connecting with and Actioning your passion(s),
  2. Anything involving transformation (of the personal self, a home, a job, a relationship, a thought pattern…)
  3. Anything requiring focus (study, research, writing, a new project…)
  4. Letting go/Purging (of anything toxic, invalid or outdated I.e. relationships, food, behaviour, emotions, power struggles, drama)
  5. Getting in touch with your own psyche and acknowledging deep emotions
  6. Connecting with a sense of your own Empowerment

For example, perhaps you’ve been contemplating getting fitter or a period of fasting.

Now may just be the time to commit to that goal; harnessing the focussed drive and intense purpose of the Scorpio energy to ensure that you stick to it.


Where Does This New Moon Affect you Personally?

Remember to look where this New Moon energy falls within your personal birth chart.

The house denotes the area of life where a seed may be wishing to be planted so look for 7 degrees and 43 seconds of Scorpio.

Any planets falling between 5 and 10 degrees around your chart (wider orb for inclusion of Mercury’s role with this New Moon); especially of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) are also being called into this period of potential growth.

If you’d like a free copy of my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” as well as a copy of your birth chart, you can sign up for my Newsletter here.

The New Moon will be exact at 03:38am on 31st October 2016 (AEST).

Remember to set your intention(s), cleanse your crystals and to meditate around this time, as this is a potent window to tune into the energy ready for the month ahead.

The Healing Power of Nature’s Remedies

mulla-mullaIn the early hours of yesterday morning my youngest boy awoke me.

He was burning up with a fever and sounded a little congested.

I did what I always do in these situations and by 2pm the same day he was bouncing on the trampoline and laughing, having burned off whatever was afflicting him.

My choice of remedies for this situation are the amazing Mulla Mulla Bush Flower Essence (applied regularly (7 drops to the mouth directly or in some water)), a cool face cloth (that’s a flannel for the English folk) placed onto the patient’s forehead and regularly re-wet/re-cooled to bring relief, plenty of water to drink for hydration and some Congest Ease to (well it’s in the name really!) ease the congestion 😉

I also regularly sponge down a fever with a cool (not freezing cold) facecloth, encourage lots of sleep and I also gave him 3 doses of Colloidal Silver throughout the day.

I love the gentle yet effective healing power of nature’s remedies and their ability to work with the body and not against it under such conditions.

I also thank my lucky stars that my youngest loves his sauerkraut, enjoys a diet high in fruits and vegetables and eats his honey and garlic making for a robust immune system that is able to quickly fight off disease and get him smiling again 🙂

A mother’s intuition is also one of the strongest allies you could possibly have when your little ones are ill, so always listen to your instincts, do what is right for you in the situation you find yourself and, if anything feels off or is troubling you, seek further guidance.

Yours in Health and Wellness,

Honouring Individual Needs, The Potential for Eruptions and Being Fully Grounded in the Present to Partake of Life’s Gifts – October’s Full Moon.


At 02:22pm on Sunday 16th October (AEST) we have our Full Moon in Aries.

Aries is a sign that speaks strongly of the self and when we have an Aries Moon closely conjunct Uranus (also in Aries) think individuality, innovation and the courage to embrace your unique potential.

Be open to spontaneity, sudden insights, exciting revelations and the opportunity to step into your power and embrace who you truly are at a deep level.


Honouring Individual Needs Within Relationships

When the Aries Moon opposes the Sun in Libra, it is also important to consider how your personal needs are being met through your relationships.

Any issues around this theme are likely to be highlighted over the next few days so give voice to your wants and needs and allow yourself to feel heard.


 The Potential For Eruptions

Make sure that you’re talking things over with others, as the old ‘carpet- sweeping routine’ is likely to prove unsuccessful as a Mercury/Sun conjunction squaring a Mars/Pluto conjunction adds some powerful, impulsive and erratic energy to the mix.

As we build up to this Full Moon arguments, heated discussions, sudden bust ups and strong, impulsive reactions could be a big feature.


Possible Transformation and Resolution and the Need for Clarity

With Venus placed in Mars’ sign of Scorpio relationships have the potential for great transformation this month, but intense feelings and possible power struggles will likely have to be confronted first.

For some, the themes of sex, power and/or intimacy may be an important factor and psychic energy may well be heightened around this time.

With Neptune semi-square to the Moon, however it is important to get clear, as there may be some confusion surrounding an issue.


Luckily, with the Sun and Mercury in Libra and Mars currently in the sign of Capricorn, the option for diplomacy and a responsible way forward is there, but patience may be required.


The Importance of Remaining Grounded in Reality to Partake of Life’s Gifts

The Sabian Symbols** are promising fruition of dreams, but there is a reminder to stay grounded in reality and to remain present so that you may receive those gifts.

The Sun is sitting on Libra 24: “A Third Wing On The Left Side Of A Butterfly” echoing the Libran theme of balance.

If we are not looking after our emotional needs we can reach burn out and that can lead to emotional eruptions.

What do you need to do to bring balance back into your life so that you feel centred again?

Are you honouring both the logical and mystical side of life?

There is also the point here of attempting to move on before fully acknowledging and taking care of the present.

Getting fully grounded in the now could awaken you to some beautiful realities.

The Sabian Symbol for the  Moon is Aries 24: “An Open Window And A Net Curtain Blowing Into The Shape Of A Cornucopia”, which reminds us that to manifest our dreams we have to physically take action.

This is also a reminder to call in the assistance of your spiritual guides (we all have them) to help you when you find the physical World difficult or tricky.

See the beauty and rewards with whatever is happening within your life right now.

The presence of many 2s in the exact time of this Full Moon (here in Brisbane) reminds us to keep tending to our dreams and visions and to keep the faith that they are all working out. Trust, Remain Positive and Believe***.

So, the trick over the next few days is:

  1. To listen to your deepest, innermost needs and to voice them well in advance.
  2. To ensure that others are aware of what is important to you and to not let things build up to such a point that you feel the only avenue available is to run or explode.
  3. To take care of yourself whilst also considering your impact upon others.
  4. To honour your deepest self – to nurture the I Am spirit inside and to acknowledge what you need along with your own innate personal power.
  5. To stay grounded in the present and reap the gifts of the everyday experience; deeply acknowledging where you are at and awakening to the knowledge that everything you need in every moment is right here with you.
