Super Full moon 7th May Scorpio 8.45 pm

From Full Moon to the New Moon (waning) the energy is gradually decreasing in size, strength and intensity… thus is a time to release and let go of any areas in your life that no longer serve your higher purpose. Don’t start anything new on a full moon, finish off projects, and tidy up.

During the Waning phase, the energy is slowing moving inward, a time for inner-reflection, review and contemplation. During this phase, from a place of non-judgement and as the ‘observer’ reflect on: relationships, work, creativity, abundance, health, and well-being. Discern which areas feel stifled, strained or in a state of struggle.

Scorpio (Water) – Passionate, emotional, willpower, psychic, determined, fearlessness

This moon is a very personal time, a time to go within and view your issues with power.

Do you own your own power?

Do you give your power away to others?

Do you misuse your power to control?

Acknowledging the truth, we have the power to transform and change.

The moon in Scorpio heralds a time of self-reflection… owning your intuitive senses/gifts for the greater good of all. When you take ownership of how you ‘FEEL’… you are then speaking the language of the Universe and authoring your life’s experiences.

You’ll sense extra depth, desire and intensity as secrets, truth and loyalties are highlighted.

Scorpio energy helps with your inner transformation, where your experience may be hidden from anyone with whom you do not have a deep level of intimacy and trust.

This inner transformation moves in mysterious ways. You may find yourself needing more quiet time and sacred space. It is important to honour the energies that are moving within that may not have words yet.

When you trust and honour this process and open to what can be felt but not yet described, you are investing in the energies of transformation that will help you birth something new.



19th May Wesak Buddha birthday Scorpio

Wesak is the celebration of Buddha’s birth & enlightenment & death. According to ancient beliefs, the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment, and left Earthly incarnation. The Buddha returns at this time each year to bring a new light to the world. Spiritual leaders gather in Wesak Valley, a sacred place high in the Himalayas, to celebrate on the Sunday that is closest to the full moon of May. It is one of the most important festivals for Buddhists.

Wesak is the time in which all Buddhists meditate together to invoke the healing forces, of SHAMBALLA- enlightenment, peace and perfection. It is believed that this ritual washing will cleanse their souls of negativity and purify their spirits. The Buddha blesses humanity with peace, love and compassion.

Make time to set your cleansing intentions, journal, re-adjust your altar, sing, dance, have a bath, to let go of what is holding you back.

Ask to receive clarity of ‘what is in the way?’


New moon 22nd May Gemini 3.38 am

The energy from the New Moon up to the Full Moon (waxing) is gradually building in strength and intensity. The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects. It’s perfect for new beginnings, sowing seeds, and launching new projects. Consider sitting in ceremony or meditation and writing down your intentions & inner-most heartfelt manifestation desires for the new lunar cycle.

Gemini (Air) – Fickle, witty, nervous, scattered, fun-loving, curious, versatility

This NEW moon is all about freely expressing yourself, it will be the time to go out and party, network and meet new people… honouring the unity in diversity.
It is a time to express what you feel in secret to those around you, and a time to express yourself creatively through song, poetry or artwork. This moon has a strong communication theme and can help you catch up on emails, paperwork. Be bold but totally right choices can create magic now. Follow your heart.

Here are some tips for optimizing the energetic opportunities of this Gemini Moon.

1. Get curious. Look at issues and problems from new angles.

3. Have conversations. Talking through situations as a way of processing will help you get clarity and see things in different ways.

Retrograde planets 

Pluto retrograde (Regeneration): 25 April – Capricorn – 4th October Capricorn  

Pluto retrograde produces the greatest powers of regeneration, death, rebirth, endings and beginnings. People can have a tremendous ability to overcome major illnesses. The Pluto transit helps us to eliminate and release the old, outdated and obsolete in our lives. We are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, and rigid emotions. It’s a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning. Many seek internal cleansings, detoxifying diets, and disciplines that connect with the inner self. It is also a time to revisit some of those old wounds, perceived limitations and purge then out of our lives.

There is an intense power for investigation. Use this time to assess reoccurring patterns of feeling out of control. Where and why do we continually give our power away, and under what circumstances do we react so defensively that we elicit attacks from others? When Pluto goes direct, the focus is for gaining control over professional and financial areas.

The purpose of Pluto in Capricorn is to reorganize society so that we may once again live in harmony with the natural cycles of our planet and the greater Universe. This means complete overhaul of global politics and economics. Pluto in Capricorn exposes the hypocrisy, corruption, and greed rotting the framework of our failing systems. Most importantly, Pluto in Capricorn examines the great imbalance between masculine and feminine energy on our planet, and there will be a return to the ancient matriarchal wisdom as being important.

Pluto turns retrograde 5 months out of the year, as it goes into the deep subconscious underworld, it transform our inner lives. This next journey comes from deep within the soul, and you already know it very well. Pluto Retrograde advances from the inside out, pressurizing the suppressed parts from childhood to bursts out, and bring us closer, to who we must become.

Jupiter retrograde (Abundance)  14 May Capricorn – 13 September Capricorn

Jupiter rules expansion, freedom, wisdom, travel, foreign affairs, abundance and good luck. When Jupiter goes retrograde, our perspective and perceptions change, which makes this a perfect time to go deep within ourselves for understanding, introspection, philosophical approach to life and enlightenment. The best way to handle this energy is to go within and seek self-improvement. What a great time to pursue and understand yourself. This encourages reflection on your motivations, the values that underpin the goals you’re pursuing and, the ways in which we look after ourselves and support our own growth and development.

The emphasis is upon inner awareness and inner growth. It is an excellent time to get in touch with personal integrity. When Jupiter is retrograde, you should evaluate how you are not being honest with yourself because you are playing a role that is disloyal to your true self. When opportunities arise while Jupiter is retrograde, they are the result of seeds planted from people or connections made in the past.

Jupiter retrograde is a time to explore philosophies, possibly something simpler from a time in your past. This period is a great time to complete your education, taking a long distance trip that you have postponed, and making a connection with a long lost friendship. It is a good time to take spiritual or philosophical courses. It is not a time to initiate material activities. It is excellent for initiating a humanitarian or fund-raising project. It is good for restoring troubled relationships, or a failing project.

This is also not the best time to take big risks, or spend up big, but rather do your research, ponder and follow your inner guidance when Jupiter moves direct.


Saturn retrograde (Boundaries): 11 May Aquarius – 29 September Capricorn

Saturn is often referred to as the karmic planet, discipline and justice, looking at our personal reality, and breaks down our control issues. Saturn turning retrograde will slow down activity, so that better methods and strategies can be developed. Saturn rules the physical and psychological. It produces the rules and regulations by which we guide our lives, our sense of responsibility, and our limitations, or limitations of those around you and practice patience.

Authority maybe also be an issue at this time, and you may feel like ‘fighting the system’ be it in your family, place of work or the greater sphere of community or government. There also tends to be a lack of boundaries, so be mindful of saying YES to everything and then feeling overwhelmed and a loss of power.

At this time, it’s essential to go back, assess commitments made, relationships, responsibilities and projects started undertaken in the past. It provides the opportunity to reassess what we have taken on, to define boundaries, to finally say NO, to back out of a commitment and to improve the organization of a project. Time to process past karma.

It gives us the opportunity to go back and reorganize, or renegotiate, or commitments that seem to be a source of frustration. Don’t start any new business activity at this time! Assess what needs to change and prepare for this change once Saturn moves direct. It is a time to assess our failures, learn from our mistakes and emerge from the introspection with wisdom and understanding.


Venus retrograde (Harmony and Love): 13 May Gemini – 25 June Gemini

Relationship issues will crop up, there could be inhibitions or restrains in your relationships. There could be all sorts of forces acting against your relationships. So, this is a time to act wisely with a strong focus on re-evaluating intimate relationships, love, beauty, money and your values. Steer away from big NEW financial commitments or investing in pricey items.

Venus retrograde heals all matters of love. Often a past relationship comes back to be re-examined. If you have any unresolved feelings toward someone, it’s the perfect time to address them! You’ll begin to see everything regarding your love life from a NEW angle, from a new perspective. Go inwards and re-examine the past.

If a good relationship is rekindled, then the partnership will be deeper and stronger than before. Observe whether you are happier, feel treasured, nurtured and valued. Choose to acknowledge who and what makes you feel good, loved and valued. It brings ease, abundance and beauty to return to your life.

If you have slipped into old patterns (overindulging in food, sex, alcohol), it is a time to also examine your relationship with substances and lifestyle choices. It is often recommended to not take major relationship steps during a Venus retro (such as engagement or marriage or even divorce or quitting a job), but to objectively explore your emotions and feelings as they come up and then to move forward consciously when Venus goes direct.
