Wednesday October 31 – Moon Meditation: “I am back on track…”

Moon in Taurus: There are no major planetary aspects today as the Moon continues to push through one of her favourite signs – Taurus. As she goes, she travels over the karmic Lunar Node. The Node reminds us that if we always do what we’ve always done, we are very likely to get what we have always got. It’s having the courage to do something different even if there are no guarantees which ends up helping us to achieve our ambitions. Which dream would you pursue if you knew everything would go perfectly to plan? Maybe you should feel the fear and do it anyway? To learn about the Universe and your Higher Self, click here.

Guest Post: True Success In Life Is To Love & Be Loved

This article was written by US metaphysician and aromatherapist KG Stiles

“If you can’t learn to forgive, you can forget about achieving true success in your life.” – Wayne Dyer

KG Stiles writes: As true lovers of astrology, we know that our purpose and path to spiritual fulfilment and worldly success in life is activated at the moment of our birth. This is our moment of truth when we sign our Divine agreement with the universe to have certain ‘archetypal’ life experiences. These life experiences are symbolically encoded in our individual astrology chart.

This means we agree to have certain life experiences because we desire to have opportunities to grow and evolve as a soul. We always have free will to choose how we will respond to life events. Basically, there are two choices; either you can respond to an event with love and acceptance or react with fear and judgment .The meaning you give to a life experience depends upon your beliefs and attitudes. Essentially, you either believe life is a benevolent, loving and supportive force or hostile and operating against you to be feared and resisted.

This means you either respond from a spirit of unity which is both loving and accepting or from separation which is born from the reactive egoic mind and fear based. In this attraction based universe, the Law of Attraction always operates to bring you exactly what you believe and resonate with. Einstein said there is only one relevant question for you to answer in life; “Do you live in a friendly or hostile universe?” You can immediately know your answer by the results of your life experience. The word universe means ’single spoken word.’ So we know by this that there is no separation in the universe. Any separation you experience is within your own mind and a mis-perception. This mis-perception needs to be forgiven.

Today with the advent of epigenetics (which means above and beyond the genes), we know that YOU have the power to rise above your inherited genetic expressions through what you nurture and nourish within yourself. One of your greatest means for rising above your pre-set genetic inheritance is through a spiritual practice of working with your personal astrology chart. Your chart gives you the lens for viewing your life experience in a ‘holy’ reflective and nonjudgmental way. Your chart is a navigational guidance system that perfectly aligns you to your place in the universe. It operates at all times to bring you exactly what you need to grow and experience success in your life.

Your chart is literally your treasure map to happiness introducing you to all the cast of characters you’ll meet on your soul’s journey; including your celestial guides and your relationship to them, as well as the cycles and stations of your life. The symbolic life of your soul is mirrored perfectly in your astrology chart which you can use to unplug from the reactive mind, fully live your journey and reach self realisation and liberation. Through the gift of understanding your soul’s journey, you begin to relate in a symbolic way to the inner workings of your life and forgive the apparent injustices you encounter.

Self forgiveness is the most powerful act of self love. Forgiveness means to release your past. Only by releasing your past can you live fully in the present moment as an empowered co-creator of your life experience. The Hawaiian tradition of Ho’oponopono is one of the most effective methods of forgiveness. Ho’oponopono means to ‘make right.’ I invite you to visit my website for a free audio download of my Ho’oponopono Forgiveness Meditation HERE -http://www.kgstiles.com/cds.html#Hooponopono. You can learn about the spiritual meaning of Ho’oponopono (with a brief explanation of the process) by viewing my YouTube video HERE – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdhO1nJxoJk. Also, you can enhance your Ho’oponopono forgiveness experience by inhaling the scent of my Heartsoothe Oil which supports your heart to heal from past hurts, grief and loss. Mahalo!

Tuesday October 30 – Moon Meditation: “Tune into the Full Moon! …”

Full Moon in Taurus: One of the earliest New Age teachings I had is that we are all connected to all life everywhere. For my money, this is why astrology works. We are all connected to all life everywhere therefore we are all connected to the planets as much as to anything else. So we respond to the planetary and luminary cycles. Today brings the Full Moon in Taurus, bringing many issues related to love and money to a climax and conclusion. This is a good thing. One chapter is ending so that another can begin. If you’re feeling tense, remember it’s the Full Moon and b-r-e-a-t—h-e. Click here for more about this week’s Full Moon.

Feng Shui question

Derelle Ball

Today I want to give a little plug to Derelle Ball who does the feng shui consultations in our Shop – here.

She really is quite amazing. On the weekend I sent her a little question about the direction of my bed – her response was around 800 words long and very detailed. Derelle is really fantastic at feng shui and so easy to work with over email.

Here is a small excerpt of her reply to me, to give you an idea:

So, in order to make the most of the very positive energy accumulating in
the East sector in relation to creative communications and travel, you need
to be mindful of some heavy earth qi brewing in the SE sector. According to
your personal 4 Pillars astrology, wood and fire are your personal nurturing
and harmonious elements, so ideally, it would be good to space clear the SE
sector with burning sage and gentle rhythmic drumming or a continuous chant
. The Dragon qi will then be able to tell you more – possibly via a dream or apparition which would connect in with the 6+2 combination in the SE sector.

Derelle is currently offering Feng Shui For Health and Vitality and Feng Shui Your Bedroom For Love consultations over email.

Monday October 29 – Moon Meditation: “I am willing to wait…”

Moon into Taurus: Mercury moves into Sagittarius today which, in theory, is actually fabulous news. The reason being that Sadge is the most optimistic of all the signs, so having the mind planet Mercury in Sadge means we will all find it a little bit easier to think positive. That’s a good thing. However, the first thing that Mercury will do in Sadge is clash with confusing Neptune. Suffice to say, if you’re not quite sure what to do right now, do nothing and await clarity!

Thought for the day

“If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”

– Zig Ziglar


The clash of Venus

Many years ago, I broke up with someone under a Venus/Uranus opposition. Our final showdown was definitely loud enough to get the neighbours’ attention!

When I later realised the break-up had taken place under a Venus/Uranus clash, it all made sense. Venus/Uranus when you’re not happy can get pretty chaotic! If you are treading on eggshells with someone romantically and you’d rather not send the relationship spinning out of control, then mind how you go this week.

Of course, some will say, what is meant to be will be. If someone is not your soul mate, of course you split. I don’t see it like that. I think we get soul mate after soul mate into our lives until we are ready to engage in a loving relationship without any entanglements.

Since Uranus is also the planet of reversals, there could be a few of those around now too. These can be good or bad depending on your circumstances.

If you’re reading all this and getting mighty confused, then try this Sanskrit mantra that I love to use daily. It’s “Om Namo Narayani” and means “I surrender to the Divine.” Surrender in this context doesn’t mean giving up. Rather it means having faith that the Divine will take care of us.

Sunday October 28 – Moon Meditation: “I am full of life… !”

Moon in Aries: The Moon moves through Aries as the “Aries planet” Mars connects with Jupiter. This is a great energy for anyone who wants to do something with courage and confidence! Mars is all about the urge to push outwards into the world. Jupiter is all about the confidence to boldly go where you have never been before. Put all this together under an Aries Moon and you have a lot of energy going out into the world, hopefully pushing us all where we need to go! If in doubt, be bold!

Saturday October 27 – Moon Meditation: “I am healing…”

Moon into Aries: We are back at the start of the Lunar Month as the Moon moves into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. This is the sign ruled by the marvellous and sprightly Archangel Ariel. Ariel is all about spring and all things new – no matter what season it is where you live, this is the day to embrace the idea that life is starting all over again. The Archangel Ariel is also known as the Angelic Ambassador of Divine Magic and Miraculous Manifestation. She reminds us – again – that anything is possible. What do you plan to achieve this month?

Friday October 26 – Moon Meditation: “I am love! …”

Moon in Pisces: There are very few major planetary alignments this week so I thought I would take a look at the planets, Gods and Goddesses associated with the days. Today, being Friday, it is of course Venus’ day. Marvellous for making wishes connected to love and money.

If you are single and looking for love, it’s a great day to take a Spirit Detox Bath to help you offload any negativity you have about love. If you’re attached, Friday night being Venus’ night makes it a great for love!
