November new moon love letter to you

November new moon love letter to you

This November new moon sets the scene for our month ahead and of nurture and nourish…

We are all still facing outer restrictions in some way or other and yet remember just how many times we, as humans, have been tested and re-covered. And this November new moon has all the possibilities and ‘newness’ for just that. It is so helpful right now to see Uranus retrograde in Taurus giving collective inspiration for re-viewing our way forward especially with finance I suspect!
I’m writing this as news of a vaccine is breaking and a feeling that we have that sense of hope and new vision brewing away.

Mercury in Scorpio … Mars in Aries (retrograde turning direct on the 14th) … Venus is in Libra (will enter Scorpio on the 21st) …

Your love letter:
What makes your heart sing? Is there something that you can do to bring a sense of beautiful peacefulness to your body … or your mind … or your soul?
Maybe a walk in nature followed by quiet dreaming time. Perhaps a home spa with gentle music. Or mad crazy dancing to some seriously loud music!
Writing, doodling, painting and using colour. Bring vibrancy into the home and your world. Move cushions, change the tea you drink or even just give permission to your eyes to watch the sky.

And let me know – I love to hear how you are enjoying moments right now.
And scroll down to the end of this email if you wish to get to something really joy-full from youtube!

My News!

Still not on social media! There are some people and groups that I miss however (!) the space, still-ness, quiet, time for email / letter / calls, quiet (did I say that already!) and … most of all … I feel a gentle balance returning to all of my energetic fields.
I may dip my toe into LinkedIn again very soon but not just yet.

And so my email list and website remains my main focus which is like a breathe of fresh air. And I’m tidying up my website and office in readiness for the new work to enter as we move closer to the Solstice gateway. More about that later as we truly are at a strong planetary shift time which continues into next year.

Planetary News!

New Moon on Sunday in Scorpio (see the theme here!).
Here we go. Moon & Sun both at 23º Scorpio at 05:08 15th November GMT.
An intriguing new moon energy. Especially given (and I’m loving this) Venus is still in Libra and making a square to Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn all in Capricorn. Now some would say that the square brings in a challenge and I say that the challenge is necessary. Test out how to balance those Capricorn energies as we prepare for the Winter Solstice in December. Walk a labyrinth and let gentle love wash over your soul.

October 31st Samhain in the turning wheel of the year

October 31st Samhain in the turning wheel of the year

The turning wheel of the year reaches the 31st October and …

a second full moon for this month and Samhain/Halloween as well … are you ready to enjoy, and delve into, the turn of the season?  turning wheel of the year

Samhain / All hallows eve / halloween … the 31st October is the festival of the world sleeping. We are in the darkest of time at this point in the turning wheel of the year and, we know, about to go into the coldest. This festival marked the last time for this year that our ancestors could safely travel before closing doors to keep warm and dry.

Insights

It is traditional to place a lit candle in the window for travellers to see and to know that a warm welcome will be waiting.
Now-a-days a lit pumpkin in a window will offer that warm welcome to trick or treaters – although movement around streets is different this year.
However the symbolism and deeply held memories are still there and so a lit candle brings in that sense of loving friends and families uniting.

Another tradition for this time is to lay an extra place at the dinner table. Again this is a part of the warm welcome given to travellers seeking refuge and also an act of remembering those that are now in the spirit world.

And this brings me to the phrase ‘the veil is at its thinnest at this time of the year’. Insights and messages. Seeing beyond the real. Working with the imagination. As we are encouraged to be indoors and ‘inside’ so the inner world and all that we have within beckons to be heard.

Scrying – possibly one of the most ancient and beautiful ways of giving the imagination permission to roam. Whether you light a fire or a candle the art of scrying is one of those ‘remembering’ parts of who we are.

Magical Life – An E-book for living in harmony with the elements is available to purchase via my website and I have put it on sale for Samhain!

Astrology

And we’re here at the astrology part!
The Full Moon (31/10/2020 at 14:48 London) at 8º Taurus and conjunct Uranus. The Sun will be at 8ºScorpio and making a special trine with Neptune. Just this aspect creates a wonder-full (and welcome) pattern in the sky for inspiring independent thoughts. Are you dreaming a lot? If so be gentle with them and allow the deeper insights to slowly appear. Draw or doodle away to your hearts content as the imagination offers a light for the path ahead.
In addition (!) Venus opposite Chiron brings an awareness of making sure we consider our ‘self’ from a healing point of view together with the planet. Venus is the goddess of love, beauty and art. Chiron the centaur bringing healing to wounds.

Is there a part of your self that would love to create something? Or nurture and nourish?
And my final ‘snap shot’ insight for this particular chart of the heavens would be that it has a strongly cardinal and earth weight to all of the aspects. Opportunity for us to be who we really are and to allow time for the deep changes that are coming to really unfold in their magical and beautiful manner.
I’m reminded of a card I have on my shelf from St Julian’s Church in Norwich with the words of the Anchoress Lady Julian

‘All Shall be Well.’ 

thank you for reading and for being here alongside me on our journey together. I would love to hear from you – keep well, safe, warm, and go gently walking forward.

As always, with love from Alison x
