Chinese New Year 2018 – THE YEAR OF THE DOG What date is the Chinese New Year 2018?
TODAY is Chinese New Year!

Each Chinese New Year takes place on a different date, based on the lunar calendar each year. Happy New Year!

How do people celebrate the Chinese New Year?

The world celebrations are an explosion of light and sound, involving the ringing of bells, lighting firecrackers and watching traditional lion dances.

Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year’s Eve. They clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year’s Day.

An old tradition that children enjoy involves red envelopes stuffed with ‘lucky money’ alongside positive wishes.

Most teenagers now have red envelope apps, so their relatives can transfer gifts for the digital age.

Which animal features for 2018?

2018 is the Year of the Dog.

The Chinese zodiac moves in a 12-year cycle, and those born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are also known as Dogs.

According to the Asian astrology, your year of birth – and the animal that represents it – determines a lot about your personality traits.

Although each of the twelve animals gets an outing every dozen years, there are different varieties – and 2018 will be the first Year of the Earth Dog since 1958.

Anyone born in an Earth Dog year will be communicative, serious, and responsible in the workplace.

Which Chinese zodiac animal are you?

The Chinese animal zodiac, or shengxiao (/shnng-sshyaoww/ ‘born resembling’), is a cycle of 12 years that repeats, with each year being represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. The animal changes at the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Following the tradition, all these animals were used to date the years that followed.

Those born in January and February take care: Chinese (Lunar) New Year moves between 21st January and February 20th. If you were born in January or February, check whether your birth date falls before or after Chinese New Year to know what your Chinese zodiac year is.

This year it will be celebrated today – Friday 16th February.

Chinese Zodiac Chart

What do the Chinese New Year animals represent?

Dog – honesty, loyalty.

Pig – friendliness, laziness.

Rat – adaptable, excellent intuition.

Ox – conscientious, high sense of morality.

Tiger – courage, unpredictability, stubbornness. 

Rabbit  impulsive, compassionate, modest.

Dragon  confidence, wit, dominance.

Snake intelligence, wisdom, privacy.

Horse  popularity, being a bit of a free spirit, hard work, intelligence.

Goat (or Ram) – kindness, sensitivity, politeness, creativity.

Monkey  wit, intelligence.

Rooster – Independence, punctuality.

The Dog, Pig, Ox, Horse, Goat (or Ram) and Rooster, are six of the main domestic animals. Also beloved by the Chinese are Rat, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake and Monkey. The definition of yin or the yang of the animals is based on the odd or even number of their claws (or toes, hoofs). The animals are then arranged in an alternating (complementary) yin-yang sequence.

Usually an animal has the same number of claws on its front and rear legs. However the rat has four toes on its fore legs and five on its hind legs. There is an old saying that goes, “a thing is valued in proportion to its rarity”, so it makes the Rat rank first of the 12 zodiac animals. It uniquely combines the attributes of odd (yang) and even (yin). 4 + 5 = 9, and yang is dominant, so the Rat is classified as odd (yang) overall.

They were then arranged into an alternating Yin and Yang sequence.

Best foot forward for this year!

Whatever your Chinese sign is, we wish you all the very best for the Chinese Year of the Dog!

Solar Eclipse and New Moon – February 15th 2018

Though we’ve all been through the ringer for the past few years, and 2018 may not seem to be starting out much better: this New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Aquarius may just feel like the crossroads we’ve needed. Rather than feel like one of those decisions we have to make between two bad options- this one actually feels like the tide may finally be turning.

 

 

Astrological Influences

Most of the astrological influences at play this year have been more in line with being able to finally let go of limited situations, limiting mindsets and baggage. It all cooked up at just the right time: a new year usually brings that kind of thinking.


January brought us quite a few influences that tied into the past and made it a bit easier to see that influence on our lives and feelings. Many of the issues that got brought up did involve things in our past we needed to heal up from.

 

This does however, tie in with the lunar eclipse we closed January out with. This, however, brings us some interesting new insights in terms of how we might work to better our lives in many different ways.

Solar Eclipse

There’s a really lovely aspect here between this partial solar eclipse and Uranus which will help. Pair that with the overall Aquarius influence: and you may find having choices suddenly doesn’t look so bad and freedom is looking pretty good.

This sextile may just lend you the confidence you’ve needed to speak your mind. If you’ve been feeling a bit held back or inhibited, you may find you’re ready to let go of the expectations of others and just be you.

 

Another aspect at play which can help that along is that the Solar Eclipse is conjunct Mercury. This will help bolster communication and help in being able to reason things out in better ways. Additionally, you’ll find that being able to write or negotiate situations with a bit more insight helps bridge some gaps you may not have been able to before.

  Clear and Positive

There’s a bit of an issue as Mars is also forming a square to Neptune. You want to keep things clear and positive- if you find yourself feeling like you don’t know the whole truth, you may want to steer clear. Additionally, any situation where you may feel compelled to act, and have to hide it: you should probably opt for something a bit more ethical. Because Venus is also in a sextile with Saturn: romance may in fact be on your mind. Though you’re looking for a deeper commitment, even true love: anything that involves deception is going to be an illusion. Don’t fall for it. Unrealistic expectations will not only not pan out, but they’re likely to blow up in your face later on.

New Beginning 


Still, there is plenty at work here to keep things positive. Impulsive moves tend to work out, as long as they’re honest- and you really won’t have to force any issues, here. More naturally occurring times of positive growth will help you to expand and transform your life over the course of the next few weeks, should you so choose to do so. There are a multitude of things at play, inviting a brave new beginning which allows you to be true to not only yourself- but true to others. So, make the most of it!

What will the new moon bring for you? Get your answer from the SMS text psychic team by texting NEW to 87777.

Max 3 x £1.50 texts per reply. Standard network rates apply to messages sent to 87777. Over 18s only. You must have the bill-payer’s permission. You may receive free promotional messages. To opt out text STOP to 87777. Service by Com & Tel. Helpline: 0333 335 0297.

Horoscopes 2018 – Valentine’s Day Special

Are you having trouble deciding what you’re going to do for Valentine’s Day? While it may be last minute- you can, in fact, use astrology to have some sense of what your sweetie wants. If you happen to know their rising sign, it’s also a good idea to look that up, too.

 

Aries

 Most Aries natives enjoy a good challenge. Additionally, they love keeping things exciting. You might want to do something a bit competitive to mix things up- but not too competitive. Think about situations where the two of you can both have fun and be physically active that can become romantic. This is an important thing to personalize to your partner: while some might enjoy a fun video game session, others may prefer a trip to the local ice skating rink.

Taurus

 Your Taurus tends to veer a bit more traditional: so don’t skip the fine sweets and roses, whichever gender they are. Start the date with your tokens and head on into a delightful, carefully prepared dinner by candlelight. Whether this happens at your place or not doesn’t matter- unless your place needs some cleaning. Then, it might be better to head out for the night.

Gemini

 Taking your Gemini someplace fun, peppy and exciting is a great idea. A new music venue, a brand new, cutting edge club- just make sure it’s not too loud so you can talk. Bonus points if you can manage to find something interesting enough to spark conversation between the two of you. Keeping it interesting and fresh makes them very happy.

Cancer

 This day was practically created for Cancers, who are at heart, incredibly romantic. However, don’t think that it’s got to be a night out on the town: in fact, they may wish for exactly the opposite. You can’t go over the top with them: haul out the poetry, the soft music and lights, make sure there are roses and spend your time crafting the perfect, home cooked meal. Privacy is essential, though, so don’t involve anyone else.

Leo

 Your Leo will be hoping you’ll know just the right gift to give them- and if you’ve been paying attention: you probably know just what they like. They’re not usually shy about it. If you don’t- you can’t go wrong with huge, flashy bouquets of more than roses. Take them out to dinner at the best place in town, and then, you can head out dancing- if it’s a spectacular party crowd, all the better.

Virgo

 If you’re Virgo has told you not to worry, or that they don’t “need” anything- don’t fall for it. While they don’t expect you to make a big deal of it or go out of your way: if you don’t do something, you may deal with the sulking later. Little details are everything to them, so if you can remember your sweetie telling you something offhand, work with that. Otherwise, tension reducers almost always win. Book them a wonderful day of the pampering they won’t usually indulge in on their own.

Libra

 Libras love things to be gorgeous, beautiful and fine. That doesn’t necessarily mean expensive- but, it does mean efforts may be necessary. If you plan something to where they need to dress up- and you do, too: you’ll probably win. Though, you may want to opt for a quieter, more intimate spot for the actual event. Somewhere beautiful, quiet and soothing tends to make for a fantastic romance of its own.

Scorpio

 Many people think the best Valentine’s Day date for Scorpio involves a kinky club, but it doesn’t. Not necessarily. What these natives crave, is intensity. You might take them to some sort of scary movie or something unusual they haven’t tried before. Though that doesn’t sound romantic- you’d be surprised. After that, you’ll want to take them someplace quieter and more comfortable to enjoy each other in peace.

Sagittarius

 These explorers love anything novel, new, or breaking with routine. If you’ve got a Sagittarius sweetie, whisk them away to a bed and breakfast someplace out of town. Take them some place they’ve never been before, something nontraditional and interesting. Any time you share new experiences and explore with them, you’re drawing them in.

Capricorn

 Though they might seem very practical to a fault, Capricorns, at heart are perfectionists and this does include their thoughts of romance. Taking the time to do your research here for the best possible dinner date is important. You won’t have to go over the top with the gift you give: but you can’t go wrong with one simple, long stemmed red rose and chocolates from an incredibly well esteemed chocolatier. As long as it’s the best, it will impress.

Aquarius

Your Aquarius has probably already ranted about how “everyone does this” or that on Valentine’s Day- and they were likely making fun of them. Buying something random for a gift, taking them someplace unusual- this is a likely win. As long as it isn’t the same thing everyone else is doing and veers away from the norm, your sweetheart is likely to enjoy it a great deal. One of the most perfect gifts for them is also not flowers- but, rather, a book of romantic poetry.

Pisces

This is another sign that absolutely adores all the romantic bells and whistles of Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to impress a Pisces- you can’t go wrong with a deep discussion over a romantic dinner. Setting up a bubble bath at home with the rose petals and candles is another wonderful thing for them- and having all the chocolate and flowers there will just put the icing on the cake.
You genuinely can’t go wrong with the classics for them.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! xxx

Valentine’s Day 2018 THE ONE

How many times, when encountering someone have you ever wondered “Is this THE ONE?” Personally, I’ve lost count. They turn out NOT to be the one, with even more of the time not even romantic as I may well have initially perceived – often soul connections bringing deep, meaningful and valuable lessons for us both to learn from each other and help further our path of acceptance. So – THE ONE? I sat with this for a while. What does it really mean? Spending the rest of my life with one person no matter what. Bit of a tall order if you ask me. That  person will change – emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually. He will age (or maybe not even reach “that” age).

Adapt and Change

Am I going to be able to adapt and change accordingly and love him in the same way, even though he isn’t the same person I fell in love with? I’m also going to change as change is inevitable. So how does that fit into the pattern? And all of this is aside from the practical and material trappings that come from being in a long term committed relationship. Plus then there’s friends and family of both parties. Also possibly pets. Or possibly children. Hmmmmm. The ONE has suddenly become THE ONE plus a whole lot more.

Food for thought

Now, I don’t want to put a dampener on Valentine’s Day, but it was just a bit of food for thought. Valentine’s Day (aptly in the sign of Pisces) gives us that wonderful optimistic dreamy energy of “It could be the one – this time.” It’s what keeps us going isn’t it? Our quest for THE ONE. Maybe the quest should be “the one that matches me where I’m at right now and let’s see where it takes us regardless of how long and just enjoy sweet moments of tenderness, kind heartedness, joy, laughter and fun together.” Feeling at ease with ourselves and each other, with no need for pretence or having to put on airs and graces.

Relationships are simple – it’s all about you being the true you and him/her being the true him/her and enjoying the experience. But we find simplicity too complicated. As the saying goes “It is simple to make life complicated. It is complicated to make life simple.”

ASTROLOGY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

All the planets are direct this month so more likely will be a case of what you see is what you get this Valentine’s. The Moon is in Aquarius and the New Moon on the 15th is also in Aquarius. With Mercury also in Aquarius and Mars in Sagittarius suggests to me possibly more spiritual, higher consciousness connections with people who are not in your usual circle. Add to that Venus in Pisces, bringing an opportunity for feeling unconditional love – Venus is exalted in Pisces and working at its highest vibration is unconditional love.

Retrograde approaching

Jupiter in Scorpio will bring intensity into the mix but will go retrograde early March up until mid July so don’t be surprised if a relationship that seems to be full on around Valentine’s Day drops in intensity in March. This is just to allow you to get used to one and other without it becoming overwhelming. Remember, Rome was not built in a day and neither are long term relationships.

Saturn moved into Capricorn at the end of last year, so you will start to reap the rewards of the lessons learned over the last couple of years of Saturn previously being in Sagittarius, namely, understanding about different cultures, philosophies and mindsets, along with different levels and styles of consciousness.

Planets on Valentine’s Day

Sun is in Pisces

Moon is in Aquarius

Mercury is in Aquarius

Venus is in Pisces

Mars is in Sagittarius

Jupiter is in Scorpio

Saturn is in Capricorn

Neptune is in Pisces

Pluto is in Capricorn

NUMEROLOGY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

14/2/2018

5 + 2 + 2 = 9

Numerologically, Valentine’s Day will always have a 7 driving force (14 + 2 = 5 + 2 = 7) giving the energy of a deeper connection, knowledge and truth.

Valentine’s Day 2018 is a 9 day (14 + 2 + 2018 = 5 + 2 + 2 = 9)

2018 is an 11/2 year. To me. 7, 9 and 11 are all “teacher” numbers.  

February is a 4 month this year (2 + 2018 = 2 + 2 = 4) which is about details but also linked with the heart chakra.

I keep getting the feeling that lots of teachers are going to connect really well this Valentine’s Day!

In what, shape or form will be interesting to see.

Valentine’s Energy

The energy of Valentine’s Day 2018 both astrologically and numerologically is saying to me very spiritual and different to the norm (whatever the “norm” is). I feel there is scope to learn (teaching and learning go hand in hand) new things about ourselves that had previously been kept hidden due to our current level of awareness and consciousness. When connecting with another an energetic symbiosis occurs and I’m seeing it as intertwining DNA, but spiritually or energetically thus unlocking parts of us in one and other. I like the Aquarius energy of Valentine’s Day this year. It feels like a fresh and different vibe with new ways of viewing relationships.

I hope that was insightful and that you enjoy Valentine’s Day wherever you may be and whatever or whoever it brings to you – whether that be THE ONE or the one for the time being.

Much love,

C xx

Astrology Lesson Part 2 – The Signs and What They Symbolise About our astrology lessons

Last time, we began a series of astrology lessons to help you better understand how astrology works in your life. You can find Lesson 1: “What Is Astrology, Anyway?” here.

We’ll be working with Western, or Tropical Astrology.

Where do the symbols come from?

We use the same symbols in astrology as you’ll see in astronomy. This is because, in antiquity- those who practiced one, also practiced the other. Originating in medieval Byzantine astronomy, the symbols you see today are mostly from the European Renaissance.

Your Natal Chart

You may not know this, but your natal chart is also called your horoscope. Historically, such things were not drawn up for people, but rather, important events. For the most part, only nobility was allowed to have a chart done up for them. Though you may now know the word “horoscope” to mean your prediction based on your sun sign- that wheel you have is your actual horoscope. It must be drawn up using your day of birth, month of birth, year of birth, in addition to both your time and place of birth.

For basic natal astrology, we look at a few key factors:

  • The Zodiac Signs
  • The Houses
  • The Planets
  • Aspects

So, your natal wheel is actually a wheel within a wheel. The outer circle tends to be the zodiac wheel, whereas the inner is the houses. Each of these are divided into 12 sections.  Take a look:

 

The basics of the natal wheel-

Each of these segments measures 30 degrees and the entire circle measures 360 degrees. Each of the slices in this are house divisions, not the signs. You’ll note that they don’t line up with the houses. This would only happen in very rare cases. The House wheel is only ever laid out like this- though the Zodiac wheel rotates according to your unique birth data. The numbers around the outer edges of the zodiac wheel, then, are the degree measurements of the house cusps as they relate to the zodiac wheel.

The Planets 


The planets, then, are in there, with the degrees in which they fall and the Houses go counter-clockwise. We’ll go more into both of those things in a later lesson. Each dividing line, then, is the house cusp and if you’ll look, you can see a horizontal line going left: the line between the 12th and 1st house. That’s the 1st house cusp: this is also your Ascendant. Give it a shot. Look at your chart and …oh? You’re not sure what that symbol is? Well…let’s go into that.

The Signs

Now, looking at the sign in which your first house cusp falls- can you name your Ascendant? That’s also known as your Rising Sign.  As you can see- mine is Libra.

Now, the rising sign- or ascendant, is fairly simple to find. It’s always going to be the sign directly left of center, there.

What do these signs mean?

Of course, you probably know that each one of those above zodiac signs has significance. You probably know all about your sun sign and what that means. Well, the zodiac wheel begins at 0 degrees of Aries to the Spring Equinox. This wheel is aligned the same as it was back when the Greeks first assigned it as the first day of Spring- and is aligned with our seasons. You may occasionally see rumors or otherwise that the zodiac wheel isn’t properly lined up, but this is untrue. This is because the Earth’s axial precession does not change the Zodiac wheel.

Another thing you’ll often see is people talking about other constellations and wondering if they change the zodiac. This is also untrue- they do not. Your sign will not change and it has not changed. This is because when the zodiac was created, in Babylonian times- they used those constellations that they could see as placeholders of sorts. The truth is, the signs came before the constellations- which also then became 12 archetypes. You’ve got each of the 12 in your natal chart, so learning what each of these means is important. You are simply NOT just your Sun Sign! If you’ve ever felt like perhaps your Sun sign just didn’t resonate- well, there are reasons for this. The biggest being: there’s much, much more at play, here, as you can see.

In astrology, each one of these 12 signs represents some sort of tendency, a character, of sorts and tells us how things happen. The Houses, well, they tell us what part of our lives or personalities is being effected. The planets, on the other hand- tell us what is happening. Each planet will move through these signs at its own pace and will change, based on whatever sign it’s in. These signs, then, change the character of the planet, in a sense. Your Sun Signs are a great example- your Sun in Aries is most certainly different from someone else’s Sun in Virgo. The same holds true of the way planetary energy manifests, from sign to sign.

Your Turn

Of course, we’ll talk about what these things mean more later on, but, knowing these cusps can help you find other parts of your chart, as well.

If you’ve got your own chart, try it with yours, if not- you can look at mine for this exercise.

Four of our house cusps have got certain designations. You’ve already learned the Ascendant. The next, is the 4th house cusp- which is the imum coeli, or the IC. Then, there’s the Descendant on the 7th house cusp and the medium coeli, or MC/midheaven on the 10th house cusp.

Find each cusp and list the signs you see.

February 2018 – Monthly Horoscopes Aries Monthly Horoscope

With Mars moving into Capricorn on the early this month, you’re going to be feeling a bit more ambitious. Taking active steps to achieve your goals is really best, now, as Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn frowns on laziness. Though you’re usually no stranger to tackling what you need to, this placement will also temper your assertiveness with organization and planning. You will also find yourself being much more patient in the process. You may find yourself tangling with some unexpressed emotions, too- so, take care to keep your foot out of your mouth with loved ones.

Taurus Monthly Horoscope

Your focus this month will be on your career, Taurus. Right around the second week, you may find that those changes you’ve needed to make there come front and center. As your hopes and dreams come to the front, you may also feel a bit more rebellious. Spending time with loved ones is emphasized and solidifying existing relationships is key. However, you may also discover that new alliances formed in February hold great potential. Jealous feelings may be problematic: either your own or in others. Take care not to engage in these distractions and they will pass as quickly as they erupt. Though this month won’t be a good time for over-indulging, you may find that your connections and trust levels make up for it.

Gemini Monthly Horoscope 

Though February may be a bit tense at times, Gemini, you’ll find relationships are the key focus. You may discover that strong feelings emerge and must be dealt with calmly. Though this sounds problematic, working your way through these things brings greater trust and intimacy. It’s an excellent month for getting things off your chest. You will find that emotional communications are highlighted: you’re more aware of what it takes to feel safe. Being unafraid to express this to others is important. You may also find yourself getting into touch with those you haven’t heard from in a while.

Cancer Monthly Horoscope

This month, it’s going to be important that you actively work to let go of the past, Cancer. You’ll discover that relationships are a highlight- and you’ll be ready to take some sort of action here. Things are a bit tense, but, in letting go and beginning the healing process you may find that giving yourself time for relaxation and play helps. Though you don’t tend to enjoy confrontations, you will discover that a bold move helps you to feel a bit more empowered. If you have been dealing with disappointments and resentments- February is a great time to stand up for yourself and take some steps forward.

Leo Monthly Horoscope

Relationships will be your focus this month, Leo. You may find that changing wants and needs has left you feeling a bit unsteady. However, your interests in new things can be incorporated into a do-over in an existing relationship or the spark that connects a new one. Before you take those steps, however, consider what you find most important and work with that. You will discover that being completely open and honest, though scary, is productive. As you come into a time where you know what you’re willing to do in order to get what you want, you’ll find that being true to that brings joy.


Virgo Monthly Horoscope

Something’s got you feeling a bit more like going with the flow this month, Virgo. Your communication is a bit less critical and you’re more careful in what you say. As you come into a time when you begin to understand the polarities in your life: being able to balance things out seems more of a priority. At the same time, this understanding makes it more clear than ever to you what you need to let go of and what you should continue to work on. If you find yourself up against a familiar brick wall, it might be time to consider putting that person or situation out of your life for good.


Libra Monthly Horoscope 

The tension finally eases up a bit in love, Libra. You may find that you’re feeling a bit more like kicking up your heels and enjoying time with more oddball friends. Feeling a bit more rebellious and frisky in love, you may also discover that your renewed vigor impacts other areas. As you re-evaluate the way you see yourself, you may discover new goals or ways of reworking old ones. Understanding how you handle the things you do is emphasized now, and you will discover careful scrutiny of your relationships is in order. If you have had a hard time reconciling what you do with what you are- or who you are- you may discover ways of bringing balance into things and being more satisfied.


Scorpio Monthly Horoscope

Your mind- and your emotions, are certainly on your goals, now, Scorpio. However, you should really check yourself in terms of how you use your personal power. Though you may be tempted to be pushier: you’ll find you are far better served adopting more ethical approaches. Taking a long hard look at your motivations and how you go about getting what you want will benefit you a great deal, now. The way forward, no matter what it is you desire, is in learning to let go of the emotional baggage and bad habits of your past. If you can let go of destructive or manipulative patterns: you can emerge on the other side much more powerful and roadblocks forward removed.


Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope

Though you may feel a bit more sluggish this month, Sagittarius: don’t let that get in your way. You are coming into a time when you must go deeper. There have been some issues at play which have shaken your ideals and it’s time to examine that. You may discover that the more you look at your emotions, the more you find what’s most important to you. Turning it all around starts right inside of you- and, this is a much more productive approach than waiting for others to make the changes you’d like to see.


Capricorn Monthly Horoscope

If you thought January was a powerful month, get ready for February, Capricorn! Actually, I probably don’t need to tell you that. You’re pretty much in unstoppable mode, throwing your passions into everything you do and thriving as a result. Your ambitions are clear and solid now. Be careful to be mindful of others as you do this. Though you’re ready, willing and able to defy convention to get what you want: you need to be careful not to alienate those you care for. You have no problems embracing new ways of doing things this month and seeing big wins as a result.

Aquarius Monthly Horoscope

Self care will play a key role in keeping you going, Aquarius. Though, generally, things are quite positive and you are making your mark on things, it’s easy to burn out, so be careful with balance. Don’t spend a whole lot of time doubting yourself, even if your ideas are unusual- you’ll find those play out best, anyway. You will be feeling much braver and ready to take on your dreams this month- and you’ll find that group activities are a major focus. Allow yourself to engage with others and you’ll find that opportunities emerge.


Pisces Monthly Horoscope 

February may feel a bit unclear and confusing at first, Pisces. You will find yourself wanting to stick closer to home and digging through some old emotions. Now is the time to think about last year and how you might allow yourself to let go of the disappointments. Though you’re feeling much more introspective these days, you are getting your bearings in a real sense, too. Towards mid month, you will discover an ability to powerfully articulate those things you think and feel.

Super Blue Blood Moon – 31st January 2018

So, this month’s Lunar Eclipse is a little more than an eclipse- it’s technically, a Super Blood Moon, but also, a Blue Moon. This all takes place on January 31, in Leo. Now, what does all of this mean?


Well, a Super Moon just means that the moon is closest to the earth, so the energetic strength is heightened and it’s usually easy to see. A blood moon is simply a term that indicates a series of 3 or more total lunar eclipses. Because this often seems to have a reddish hue, we call it a blood moon. Though the addition of “blue moon” may make you wonder if red and blue will make purple: “Blue Moon” does not refer to color. The Blue Moon is when we have two or more full moons in a calendar month.

Eclipse of a Blue Moon


Though the last “Super Blood Blue Moon Eclipse” did in fact, occur over 30 years ago, this one is significant for other reasons. This is the first total eclipse of a blue moon in almost 152 years.

Now, a lunar eclipse isn’t that dissimilar to the impact of a full moon: except, it’s much more concentrated energy.  Like most full moons, your focus is probably going to be more on your partners, your loved ones, and your emotions. Total Lunar eclipses, however, impact our private lives in much bigger ways. When we have a clash of what we feel and what we think, those conflicts can come to a head with an eclipse. This can bring us some much needed clarity when we look at these situations unflinchingly.

The Cycle 

This is also the end of one cycle and the start of another- which is always a big deal in astrology. At these key points in time, we have a unique opportunity to sort of clear away the emotional clutter and start over. The kicker is: you have to do the clearing. Since that doesn’t mean denying the problems: it does mean, using the light shined on them to look at them clearly.

 

A Sign By Sign Look At This Lunar Eclipse

 

Aries

This has already been quite the year for you, Aries. Your usual sense of direction points forward, but, you have been taking big steps on creative endeavors. At this point, you might be feeling frustrated and the eclipse may bring even more to the table. Do not allow yourself to give in to the doubts you may be confronted with. Balance your emotional responses with your long term vision. Continue staying the course, working towards your goals: and correcting course where you’re shown that’s needed.


Taurus

Most of what you’ve dealt with already this year has been very internal, Taurus. Those external factors have had you confronting many imbalanced relationships and situations. Now, though, it’s your turn. If you have felt like people were leaning on you a bit too hard, you may find it’s your time to lean. You may find not everyone will catch you- and that’s important to note. The ones who do, however, will more than make up for this. Don’t be afraid to ask for the help you need.


Gemini

If you’ve had situations where you just couldn’t make up your mind, Gemini: now may be a time when it’s made up for you. Though you’ve been unsure of whether your career was worth it or not: you may find that choice becomes obvious with this eclipse. It’s going to be very important that you not give into self-criticism and rather: opt for doing the right thing. Underneath your emotional responses, you will know what that is. You need to trust yourself.

 

Cancer

Just when you think you’re drained, something else comes along, Cancer. While this reminds you that you’ve still got feelings left in there- it’s not exactly pleasant, is it? All too often, the things that don’t go as planned color the way you see things: don’t. Instead of looking at your progress in terms of the things that aren’t working, take a look at what is. There is hope, still yet and that hope is in your hands. Where you go with it, is up to you and not anyone else.

Leo

Feelings. I could stop right there, couldn’t I, Leo? You have already been dealing with that roller coaster though, and suddenly, with the eclipse: shift happens. The situations you encounter put you front and center, again- except, now, you have a new perspective on board. You might still be feeling a bit tender, but as it turns out, this sensitivity becomes an asset as you go forward.

Virgo

It’s been hard to focus lately, hasn’t it, Virgo? Though you typically are better at handling the details: the details have gotten overwhelming. This trend continues a bit, however, a balance is in order. It’s time to set some healthy boundaries, ground your expectations, and continue to work on your goals. Don’t be afraid to step back and take things slowly. There is no rush here and you are a work in progress, too.

Libra

So far, so good, this year, Libra. Though it has been hectic and a little stressful, you’ve been working on things. Thus far, the progress has been hit and miss, but you’re getting there. A word of caution, however: it’s still important to take care of you. You have needs, wants and desires that don’t relate to your goals. You also, more than likely, have many people in your corner you could be reaching out to, to help. Don’t be afraid to do so.

Scorpio

Picking your battles will be a theme for you this month, Scorpio. Though you’ve been pretty on the ball lately: you may find you need to pay attention. Not every battle’s worth losing the war on, and motivation matters. Taking the time to think about where your priorities lay and what you hope to accomplish will put you back in touch with what you’re working towards. There’s a lot of motivation there, too.


Sagittarius

You may feel like you’ve been trying, but not getting very far, Sagittarius. The thing is, for you, this eclipse can bring an opportunity for clarity. What areas of your life are stuck- and what are you still holding onto that keeps you there? It may be time to do some clear headed analysis on those things, in particular. A mindset, a relationship, even just an idea: take care not to hang on to something that holds you back.


Capricorn

Self improvement is exhausting- and who knows that better than you, Capricorn? Particularly, this year. You may have found yourself working towards a lot more, with a lot more tenacity. This is a good thing- but the doubts do hit, don’t they? Though at this point you may find yourself questioning your own capability: you shouldn’t. Fight through those feelings, you can do it: whatever it is. Don’t allow self doubt to lie to you about that.

Aquarius

Though you’ve been plagued with the scatter brains, Aquarius: things smooth out, soon. This eclipse will help you gain some much needed clarity. Unfortunately, the reason you’ve had a hard time getting your head in the game- your personal life- may come into focus. Take a deep breath and get ready to address those issues and everything else begins to open up.

Pisces

Tough choices are a theme this month, Pisces. You may find yourself either taking on something new- or letting go of something. Either way, you may make that decision and then begins the second guessing- this isn’t something you want to give in to your doubts on, though. Try not to allow your feelings to get the better of you, once you’ve made a choice, stick to it. You’ll find that works out better than you think.

Astrology Lesson Part 1 – What IS Astrology, Anyway?

A l’alta fantasia qui mancò possa;
ma già volgeva il mio disio e ‘l velle,
sì come rota ch’igualmente è mossa,
l’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle.

Here vigour failed the lofty fantasy:
But now was turning my desire and will,
even as a wheel that equally is moved,
The love which moves the sun and the other stars.

Dante, speaking at the end of Paradise

As above, so below-

You’ll often see this phrase used in astrology. It’s actually from The Emerald Tablet. Also known as the Tabula Smaragdina or the Smaragdine Table- this is an interesting, yet cryptic magical text. No one knows its original source. Reputed to contain all the secrets of the transmutation of the secret of the prima materia- it is said to be the foundation of the art of European alchemists and the art of the Hermetic Tradition. The phrase “As above, so below” is said to more or less encompass the full system of traditional and modern magic contained within the text.

Because astrology is a powerful tool for personal transformation- and also used in manifestation work, you can see why this phrase is used. We look to the stars, the planets, and their positions to better understand ourselves and our fate. What we see above is reflected within us, and what is reflected within us- is also what we see above on a clear, starlit night.

Art…or Science?



Technically speaking, perhaps a bit of both. Metaphysics has a couple of definitions- and one is not that flattering. Defined as “the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space.” but also, an “abstract theory or talk with no basis in reality”.

While some may find the latter to be insulting, I don’t. When we understand that though astrology does in fact, fall under the header of “metaphysics”- we should also ask ourselves, “Who defines reality?” and in doing so, understand that astrology can be a powerful tool for not just better understanding our own, but shaping it.

Still, the argument of whether astrology is an art or a science rages on. Astrology is, after all, referred to as “The Mother of All Sciences” .

An astrologer needs to be able to have a high level of intellectual clarity. In addition to this, though, we act as guide- so, perspective and empathy are also necessary. Our work is very much interpretive, and therefore, a subjective perspective capable of a great deal of understanding and meaning.

Some would say that it is an art based on science and I am inclined to agree. Astronomy is most assuredly a science- and astrology is, at heart, the language of astronomy in our lives. Mathematics, physics, astronomy and empathy entwine to create a system of understanding.

So, perhaps the answer is both…and neither.

The Two Major Players



As you read about astrology, you will no doubt encounter two different and distinct types. Tropical and Sidereal. Western astrology, or Tropical, is what we will be working with in our lessons. This is merely because this is the type of astrology I practice- though it’s an often heated debate: neither is superior to the other. You may find one speaks to you more than the other does, but this is a personal decision.

You may have also heard of Sidereal or Eastern Astrology. This is sometimes referred to as Vedic or Joytish.

Twice as Nice


Both tropical and sidereal refer to a year- but, they’re two different definitions. They are also two systems for the coordinates of the ecliptic that we use in astrology. They do each divide the ecliptic into signs based on the constellations – but here’s where they begin to differ. The tropical system is based on the intersection of the ecliptic along the celestial equator or the vernal equinox of the Northern Hemisphere. The Sidereal system, on the other hand, does so based on the fixed stars. Don’t worry, we won’t hash out all the differences, here and it’s much less complicated than it sounds.

The point is, though, that both of these are incredibly useful tools and both are valid. It’s important that you find the one that you feel most in tune with.

What You Will Need

As we go through these lessons, you will need a copy of your natal chart. If you don’t have your natal chart, I will be using mine for an example to help better illustrate the concepts at play.

I also recommend you keep a notebook, to take notes and to journal your own thoughts as we go.

Later on, we’ll also explore the ephemeris, so, if you’d like to grab a copy and familiarize yourself with that, you can. Don’t worry if it seems complex at first. We’ll simplify it so that you can read it with ease.

Coming up

In our next lesson, we will begin to explore the symbols you’ll see in astrology and what they mean. Stay tuned!

Timing in Psychic Readings  WHEN?

When is something going to happen?  Has to be the  most asked question of any Psychic.  Whenever we tune to a situation and we set a future influence, clients aren’t normally satisfied with their answer until they have heard when it’s going to happen.  I must admit that if I have a Psychic Reading I want to know that too. 

WHY?

As we tune into the energies of a situation it can often feel like this is happening right now.  Particularly if say a client is still hurting from the past, but the situation that hurt them could of happened years ago.  To us it would feel like it’s all been very recent.  Sometimes when I link handsfree with no tools, to a person’s’ energy I often have no clue if I’m feeling the past, present or the future. To me it feels like now!  The Universe really doesn’t provide any sense of timing to us and that is why the Past, Present and the Future can all feel the same in the energies and from a Spiritual point of view there really is no clock or calendar.

WHAT’S IMPORTANT?

When giving a Psychic Reading obviously the content of the reading is important and so are the influences for the future.  However, when we try to give a timeframe the number is the most important part i.e. if a Reader gives 6 weeks for a timeframe.  It’s the “6” that is the important bit.  What we have to keep an open mind about is that although the Reader feels at the time this influence may occur  in 6 weeks, it could actually work out to be 6 hours, days, weeks, months or even years.  So it’s the “6” bit we really need to take notice of and even then it still might out.

HOW WE DO IT

Many Psychics feel for their time frames. They may feel that something is likely to occur within a 3 month period or they are giving their whole reading for the next 3 months.  They may even use the Seasons as a timing, “this may well happen around the Summer months”, so you know that it’s June to September.  Some Psychics can feel for actual significant dates and may say something like “I’m being shown the 14th” or “I’m being shown between the 10th – 16th”. The Reader may feel as if they are reading for next month, BUT it could be those dates in a different month!

Using Tarot Cards to set timeframes can be quite a interesting subject.  Some Readers will use their Minor Arcana (the suits of Pentacles, Wands, Swords or Cups) and they will go for the number at the top of the card i.e. 3 of Pentacles.  Then they will say something like “I sense 3 days, weeks or months.  

A very traditional method of setting  timing with the Tarot is using the Tarot Suits in the Minor Arcana like this:

Wands represents Days or the Summer months

Swords represents Weeks or Spring months

Cups represent Months or Autumn

Pentacles represent Years or Winter

All Readers will have developed their own individual style of setting a time frame, using whichever method they choose to undertake.

HOW I DO IT

Personally, I have developed my own way of looking at time frames in my own readings.  I like to take what comes to me via my Psychic senses.  I also like to use my Tarot Cards and I like to use 5 cards per month. Looking at 12 rows of 5 cards would give me a yearly indication of what lies ahead for my client.  If a Card is  the  5th in the row that to me is the end of the month.  If the Card is 1st in the row of 5 then that to me is the start of the month.  This is purely my own method that I have been using for the past 24 years, however, I accept it’s individual to me!

CONCLUSION

Try to take the time frames in a Psychic Reading as a complete approximation. Don’t throw out those notes just because the time frame given has passed.  It all still may be yet to occur!

Energy and your 2018 – By John Healey

If you’ve been open to the psychic world for some time, you will have heard the word energy used a lot by now.  But if you’ve just started getting involved in the psychic in some way, ( first ever reading, maybe? ) you are going to hear it referred to over and over.  In fact, from 2018 psychics and energy healers are going to be more exact in working with energy than ever before.  I’d like to give you some idea of why.

A Closer Look

O.K. let’s not get too deep here.  Present day science says that everything is essentially energy and information.  This means the office wall you could be looking vacantly at, the car being parked in the street outside, the birds singing in the trees; all just energy and information at the level of quantum particles and empty spaces.  We continuously identify with, personalise, and objectify what we see and know, but that doesn’t alter the fact it’s all just energy appearing in form.

The ancient Chinese had a word for it – Chi.

If your response to what you’ve now read is you already know this, you get it, the real point is still likely to have escaped your attention. And when seen with insight it will surprise you.  And this is?

On or Off Energy

All energy is either strong and on, or weak and off. Flick a light switch, turn on any computer, and instantly you will get the point.  Whatever text or image appears on the computer screen or your phone, it’ll be made up of 1 and 0 – off and on.

You too are either energetically strong or weak to any situation or relationship.  That is what it all comes down to.

Luck plays virtually no part in it.

All energy is in free fall, changing. There can be order or none.

Are we always aware of what we’re energetically weak to? No, no we are not.  It is behind whatever is bothering you right now, but it’s never what you think it is.

You use strong feeling and intuition to know the reason, source, cause.  If you identify it correctly, all energy can be strengthened or deleted – instantly.

You become your own expert.

In 2018 we’re going to be ready to stop wasting time, and get to the point.

It’s going to be quite a ride!

John Healey would love to give you his own original reading to uplift and enlighten you. Whether you want a traditional card reading, a reading with his Virtual reality prism, an uplifting energy reading, or one of his special Box set readings, then contact John here;
