26th December 2016

Every now and then, the Universe gifts us with a New Moon right at the end of a calendar year and that’s exactly what’s happening in a few days time! It’s a gift because New Moon’s are always opportunities to finish off and let go, so that we can plant beautiful new seeds.

On the 29th December, the Moon joins the Sun and Mercury (retrograde) in Capricorn. It’s almost as if we have our very own trio of  mountain goats, beckoning us to journey with them up the 2017 mountain. They’re at the ready to  equip us with  resourceful guidance, discipline, structure, responsibility and commitment.

…All sound a tad boring?  Well, never fear… Uranus is near, giving us a hearty whack of maverick energy to kick start the New Year!

The planet of change and liberation, turns direct on the same day as the new moon,  after a five month retrograde period.  When Uranus is retrograde, we feel the force of change internally, but often aren’t able to make it manifest, for one reason or another.

This new moon, should, by all accounts, be a positive catalyst for change! Yeah!

All those plans you’ve had – all the change you’ve  wanted to bring into your life?  This is the time!   If you feel excited and maybe a little nervous  about doing something different – something that will  expand you,  ignite you, excite you…that’s our revolutionary friend Uranus!

Connect with the energy of this mature, thoughtful, goal-driven Capricorn new moon to assess the changes you want to integrate into your life. Write them down. Make dates in your calendar. Commit to them.

And then… stir in a handful or two of sparkly  Uranus energy to take it up a few notches. Break out of the norm. Do something new… or… Do something old in a way you’ve never done before. Embrace the unique, the unusual, the invigorating!

Why not?

What do you have to lose?

Happy New Year to you all.  Its gonna be a cracker!

Lifelight Astrology Update – Full Moon in Gemini 17th December 2013



Today’s full moon in communicative Gemini opposite the expansive, truth seeking  Sun in Sagittarius, challenges us to look at how what we believe about ourselves and the world, our visions for the future and how they relate to what we are actually putting out there. We’re being provided with a truth seeking laser beam this week, which can cut through layers of illusion, as long as we’re prepared to use it.

I recently heard this line, by Iyanla Vanzant which really struck a chord in me. “Our eyes adjust to the level of deficiency present”. In other words, our lives will adjust to wherever or however we believe ourselves to be lacking.  Our beliefs and visions are what pull us forward, whether they are positive or negative, so it’s really important that we examine them if we want to grow and flourish. “I am”  is the creative force of the Universe, so anything following those words will naturally create our reality.

So… if we are repeatedly stating or thinking “ I am poor…I am lonely… I am single… I am not good enough… I am too old”.. then guess what our reality is going to adjust to?

Take some time over the next day or two to examine and if possible journal what the deficiencies are that you are holding about yourself and whether they’re true or false. Be aware too of whether your words are in alignment with what you really want, or if you are censoring them in order to gain the approval of others.  Are you living authentically or pretending to be something that you aren’t?  Where can you make adjustments so as to be  more true to yourself?

Ask the questions and then just become the observer and notice what comes up. With all the planetary action “up there” this can be a very powerful trigger for huge change “in here”.
