Make Magic with the Full Moon

At 21:13 (GMT not BST), we will enjoy the full moon in Scorpio.

When you discover the place in which you feel truly at home – you’re in a unique position to move into your own and quite literally ascend to your throne.

Happiness is not about reaching the castle gate, but instead the magic of finding it. 

Yet how often do we spend the better part of our lives searching for the perfect place (or job or relationship) only to discover we’ve been trying to fit into places and situations where we do not (and never will) fit?

By the light of this full moon, you have an opportunity to find the place where you truly belong, even if it’s only in your dreams. Once you know where it is – what it looks like – how it feels – you can move toward it in real time.

  • As you move toward your most inspired goal, what do you notice about who you are becoming?
  • When was the last time you were in a situation like this?
  • What would your heroine do next?

Stormy Weather

Today, on 4 May at 22:47 GMT (not BST), we enjoy this year’s new moon in Taurus.

Smile and the whole world smiles with you…

Stanley Gordon West

This new moon reminds us that even in times of hardship and discomfort, we can still choose to present a brave face.  Even the darkest cloud has a silver lining (albeit, perhaps, well concealed) and when you find it, your situation starts to improve.

Even the darkest cloud has a silver lining

This is not about faking your feelings. Neither is it about putting on a superficial show of strength. Instead it is about taking advantage of research that suggests that your body chemistry actually changes so as to reflect what’s showing on your face.

In addition, your facial expression and body posture effects what other people think of you and this, in turn, plays back in a way that impacts your self-image. The message you choose to project to the world at large always goes a full 360 degrees.

  • What are you doing well?
  • How were you successful this past week?
  • What would your hero or heroine do in this situation?

Plato was a bore

At 11:13 GMT today, 19 April, we will enjoy the full moon in Libra.

Surely it is a good thing to have developed your own philosophy of life and even better when you strive to adhere to it. There’s nothing worse than someone who spouts platitudes and then conveniently forgets them when it comes to taking action.

Plato was a bore.

Friedrich Nietzsche

But there is a danger to thinking too much, not the least because it then becomes all too easy to justify everything and anything.  


Every full moon brings things to fruition, and with this one you can expect insight as to just how much you live in your head.

Every full moon also brings emotions to the forefront and to the extent there’s any clash between your head and heart, pay very close attention. The chances are good that you’ve been overthinking something and to continue that approach is no longer in your best interest. 

  • What resonates for you?
  • What does it feel like?
  • How else could a person handle this?

Fairy Godmothers

You pray in your distress and in your need: would that you might pray also in the fullness of your job and in your days of abundance.

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

On 5 April at 8:52 GMT (not BST), is this year’s new moon in Aries.

Now is the perfect time to get in contact your fairy godmother and/or guardian angels. Guides, nature spirits, and magical helpers of all sorts are almost always around, especially when you believe in them and trust in their presence.

So, if you’ve been struggling to get all that you need to do done, have faith that if you ask for help, you’ll get it.

Equally, keep in mind that God (and fairy godmothers and guardian angels) prefers to help those who help themselves, so don’t forget that you’re asking for help to get your work done, not someone to do it for you.

Where’s your fairy godmother?

While you’re at it, you might also ask your fairy godmother or guardian angel to support someone else also in need and to set a good example for her (or him), you might get the ball rolling by offering that someone your own helping hand. 

  • What action will you take?
  • What is the next step?
  • When (time and date) will you have completed this?

Beauty Slips Away

At night the watchmen of the city say, ‘Beauty shall rise with the dawn from the east’. And at noontide the toilers and wayfarers say, ‘We have seen her leaning over the earth from the windows of the sunset.’

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet.

beauty slips away

With this full moon in Libra (1:44 GMT) on 21st March, catch a fleeting glimpse of beauty before it slips away. 

If you see it, make mental note of how it looks and feels because the moment something becomes manifest it is already in the process of decay. 

Let this be a reminder that however much you might not wish to let go of something or someone, time never is on your side. It is only in your memory that you are able hold fast to anything but then the question immediately becomes whether or not it is in your best interest to try.

  • If you had it to do over again, what would you do differently?
  • In the bigger scheme of things, how important is this?
  • What will you think about this five years from now?

Quiet Moments

At 15:05 GMT on Wednesday, 6 March, is the new moon in Pisces.

Where shall you seek beauty, and how shall you find her unless she herself be your way and your guide?

(Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet)

New Moon in Pisces

With this new moon, you have the opportunity to open yourself to higher forces. Such gifts come with quiet moments, when you’ve taken time out for meditation and contemplation.

Under this influence, creative projects that have failed to come together (or even get started), may find a new lease on life, a new form. Solutions to problems that have long evaded you, could come in a flash, when you least expect them.

Be prepared. Write them down.

  • What would it mean to take full advantage of your inspirations? 
  • Why not turn on the tap of creativity and let blockages become unblocked?
  • Where is your muse?

by the light of the moon…

At 15:55 GMT today, 19 February, we will enjoy the full moon in Virgo.

Any full moon brings fruition and with this one, you can expect an experience that reveals the ‘true picture’ of something or someone. This may be good or it may be bad – depending on whether you’ve been idealising the situation.

by the light of the (full) moon…

We’ve all been told not to judge a book by its cover but nine times out of ten, that’s just what we do. Part of the reason, of course, is that it’s easy. It’s also human nature. 

But what lies within may be very different from what’s apparent on the surface.

By the light of this (full) moon, look carefully and answer honestly, what really is going on.

  • What aspect of the situation have you not yet explored?
  • What is just one more possibility?
  • Where will this lead and is it where you want to go?

With this new moon, it is not the time to loose your cool

Today, 4 th February, at 21:05 GMT we will enjoy the new moon in Aquarius. For the next couple of weeks, it’s time to talk about organisation, power, and leadership again.

Cool rationality isn’t just one of the blessings you can expect from this time, it’s an absolute necessity. 

Emotional intelligence (i.e. being aware of emotions – other’s and your own and how they drive behaviour) is more than de rigueur. It can make all the difference between success and failure.

Emotional Intelligence can make all the difference between success and failure

In all matters (and especially in business dealings) you must strike the balance between head and heart. Shouting will not get people to do their jobs well. Likewise, burnout and depression won’t help you to do yours well either.

You may be ‘master of the universe’ but you still need a break now and then.

When you feel life spinning out of control, Spend a a few minutes listening to some soft, soothing music. As you relax, imagine the music vibrating with a message of universal empowerment and peace.

Equally, you might get yourself an Emotional Capital Report, which is designed to to provide you with essential information about your leadership potential based on your emotional intelligence. For more information, click here.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Let’s admit it.

Of late, there’s been a lot of hot, stale air around.

But a breath of fresh air comes on 21 January (5:13 AM GMT), with the fiery Full Moon Lunar (total) eclipse.


The Sun has just moved into Aquarius. That alone is enough to deliver a forward-thinking push. Add to it this lunar eclipse in Leo, and it’s a double whammy.

Ambition is rife. You’re all fired up for your future. Quite possibly you’re tempted to charge off in all directions at once. That, however, would be a grave mistake. During this period, it’s all too easy to take on more obligations that you can manage. Worse, it may take up to a year for you to even notice the damage this will have done.

Although eclipses are not exactly rare (most calendar years have four, two of which will be solar eclipses), they do tend to attract a good deal of attention. This is because they serve as a release for pent up energy so now is definitely the time to get moving again.

Just make sure that you can walk before you start to run.

Life, be fit for it

With the New Moon in Capricorn (1:29 AM GMT on 6th January), you have an opportunity to begin anew to develop yourself physically.

Whatever your current level of fitness, you can always do more yet this is not to suggest that you should overtax yourself.

Always remember that not everyone is a gymnast anymore than everyone is a tennis star. Some benefit from lifting weights whilst others benefit from yoga. Although it’s difficult not to compare yourself to others, it’s easier to avoid this temptation when you keep in mind that when it comes to physical prowess, we each have our own needs and talents.

So, with this New Moon try something new in your exercise routine – see how you like it – and liking it is definitely more than half the battle.

  • What’s your goal?
  • What’s your action plan?
  • What does fitness mean to you?
