Happy Magnificent, Magickal, Manifesting, Majestic, Major, Malleable, Matchless first Monday of November! How has your week been delicious one? How was Halloween/Samhain for you? I have so much I want to share with you about the New Moon, the Energy for November and all sorts of random deliciousness, thus this post might be a tad long. So let’s start with the energy of November.
Every month has a different energy or theme to it. If you remember October was:- Taking Inventory, and September was:- Restructure and Recalibrate. Well this month, November, has the interesting theme of TRUTH. As Lena Stevens shares:- “We focus on truth this month as an energy with the opportunity to tap into a greater and higher truth as well as to discover our own truth on many levels allowing us to speak and make choices from our own truth rather than a truth we don’t resonate with. You could witness great polarity as one person’s truth is never completely the same experience as another person’s truth. You will also see posturing around judgment masquerading as truth. If there was ever a month to “not take things personally”, this would be it.
We need to differentiate here between truth and beliefs. Truth is an energy that is experienced in the higher mind and the higher intellectual center. Beliefs are how the intellectual center or the mind processes information, giving that information a definition to more easily organize it for understanding life experiences and events. Beliefs are structured from patterns we came in with as well as our imprinting and what we choose to learn and believe over our lifetime.
Truth is an experience of inner knowing and requires trusting our intuition. Truth is often not able to be explained intellectually and has to do with instinctive and emotional reactions rather than anything we had the time to “think through”. We know when we have not listened to our inner truth that things can go badly – “If we had just listened to our intuition”.
To find out more about this energy and how it will show up for you this month on a more daily level, do please go over and check out what Lena has to share, she is quite amazing.
So there we have the shamanic energy imprint for November and if we look at the month of November from an Astrological point of view, it’s a chaotic, tumultuous energy month where a lot is happening all at once and this can lead to feeling off balance, out of kilter and a tad messed up. For November you can expect big changes, liberation from fear, awakenings, changes of fortune and chances to get lucky. Now why is it so tumultuous you may ask? Good question grasshopper. Well, Uranus is essentially moving backwards from the sign of Taurus to Aries, now in case you have forgotten, Uranus is the planet of chaos and change (getting the feeling now?) On top of that Jupiter is changing signs and moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius. We also will see a Mercury retrograde coming up and all sorts of various other aspects. So what the heck does this all mean? If you feel that you are caught up in the “Universal Washing Machine” and it all feels a bit out of control, then you are feeling the energy of it all. Now don’t fret because we have an invitation to look at the truth of it all for ourselves and to really welcome in big, true, positive change and liberation. A perfect time to do this would be the New Moon that happens on Wednesday.
Now this delicious New Moon is in Scorpio and she invites you to tune into the wisdom and love that resides inside your heart and soul. You are going to be encouraged to view things from the heart and to find love, compassion, and empathy not just towards others, but also towards yourself. Showing yourself love and compassion is the ultimate spiritual practice, and will help you to find your confidence, raise your vibration, and live a more fulfilling life. The benefits of self-love are really endless.
On this New Moon, really make it a point to be extra kind to yourself. Hold yourself close to your heart, and be gentle and loving in what you say and what you think. Even if negative thoughts creep in, try to remind yourself that you are on a journey of learning and growing, and there is no need for you to have a “perfect” life. So give yourself a little time on Wednesday to take this energy and plant your New Moon wishes.
So there we have it, a lot is unfolding this month my delicious lovely, but it’s all going to be really delicious (honest). I’ve already been feeling the shift in energy and the planetary movement as I have to say this has been a rather surreal week for me, kind of like dancing with the thin veil and actually giving myself permission to BE in that space for a few days and not get trapped in the DO space (although lots got done lol).
On Tuesday I was tapped, like tapped on every layer and level as I had been a tad negligent about recharging my batteries, so I stayed in bed for the morning (which was delicious) and literally had those dreams that feel like fever induced. Do you know what I mean? They are cool, but weird, but there’s a message, but their weird. Yes? Or is that just me? I decided to actually work the energy of the waning moon and she did not disappoint. Now, if you don’t know what that means, it’s all about creative, nourishing time, lucid dreaming time and getting ready to act when New Moon comes. When I finally surfaced I realised that energetically I had to clean and cleanse my house. So I mixed up some rosemary, geranium, lemon and lavender and created a place that felt good on all levels, then went to the ocean, picked a bunch of rocks and gridded the space with intention. (Now I know that may sound odd, but it really isn’t.)
I then lit a lovely fat candle and just sat for a bit and breathed in the shift and change, the peace and ease that now exuded into the space. As I sat looking at the lovely candle and it’s dancing flame on the mantelpiece it got me thinking about candles (as one does). I realised that I use candles daily. I use them in ritual, I light one every day in my home with the blessing “For home, hearth, health, harmony and happiness”. At birthday’s there are candles galore, on the cake, on the table – everywhere. When I receive news that literally brings me to my knees I will light a candle. When I am sending a blessing, a prayer or a bubble of healing energy – I will light a candle. Am I the only one in this? Do you light candles for all sorts of reasons?
For the whole of last week I played with the waning energy of the moon and allowed myself to just BE in that space of inward reflection, nurturing and cocoon like, it was fabulous! On the weekend my niece and were meant to go for a big explore, however, a close family friend who had been my niece’s surrogate gran had passed on Friday, so we decided maybe a huge explore in the rain is not the most nurturing thing we could do. Thus, guess what we did? We went to a glorious cathedral, you know the type with all the amazing stained glass windows and vaulted stone ceilings? The type where you push open the large, heavy wooden doors and there is a sense of hush and peace? As we walked in the air was so still and calm and we soon found banks and banks of candles waiting to be lit. Thus, we lit some candles, offered up blessings and then just sat quietly on a pew and let the whispers rise to the vaulted ceiling. It was quite lovely (but see what I mean about candles?) We then went for a big walk along the breakwater that juts out into the ocean and as we walked we were delighted to see that we were being accompanied by six swimming seals! They were quite magnificent and they swam alongside where we were for a good kilometer, quite awe inspiring. We ended up our little jaunt sitting in Murchies tea house with a large piece of cake each and great big mugs of pumpkin spice latte, reminiscing and sharing stories of the lovely woman and the different roles she had played in both of our lives. So all in all it was a really nice day of honouring, remembering, healing and moving with the energy as opposed to forcing something.
Okay, now I have chuntered on a tad too much, so let’s crack on with the reading. The cards that wiggled, jiggled and danced to come and support this week are The Lightworker Oracle. Now, if you have never worked with this deck, she is really quite divine. She is for anyone who wants to connect with divine light, accelerate their spiritual evolution and develop their connection with higher spiritual guidance. Yes? The crystals that literally danced their way out of there gorgeous resting spot are:- Brecciated Jasper, Rhyolite and Sodalite. Of course the autumn leaves needed to be involved as they wanted to provide you with a colourful backdrop. I did get an interesting download for a guided visualisation yesterday, thus, there is one if you feel inclined. Its quite an interesting one and I was thrilled to receive it. If not, just settle into your body and let your breathing gently slow down. Then with the the energy of Truth and the New Moon energy of love pick the card or cards that resonate for you.
Shall we go see?
TRUST IN THE PLAN
In preparation for radical growth, there can be temporary disorder and chaos. Whilst the mind may worry that something is going wrong, the spirit knows that this is a way for the old to disassemble so the new can be formed. Although you may feel out of control during such times, you do not need to resist the process. There is no need to attempt to impose your own sense of order upon the greater plan. You do not need to seek solutions, for there is no problem here in need of solving. What has been is being cleared away in preparation for the next chapter in your life. Have faith. All is well.
Do not fear. You may see the life you have known appears to be ending. You may find that the things you used to do or the way you used to think no longer seem as relevant as they once were. You may feel your relationships and friendships are changing. Some may even be ending. Perhaps you find you no longer have the energy or motivation to keep certain relationships going in your life.
However, your energy is meant to be withdrawing from what it once supported. This is not an abandonment or betrayal. It is not selfish. It is honest. When you trust in your spiritual growth, all that happens is love. That means that even an apparent loss always serves love, whether that is immediately obvious or not. It is sometimes necessary for both parties to become free to live their true destiny.
Life is a loving, creative journey for your soul. That means there will be times when the very thing you have worked towards needs to crumble, so that the next evolution of your soul manifestation upon the earth can take place. You are divinely scheduled to evolve at this point in your life. Can you sense an exciting growth phase happening for you? There is another way for you to live, to be, to thrive and love in this world, and you are rapidly heading towards it. This is a time to surrender control and allow a higher power to direct your course. Many exciting new opportunities, situations and connections will come into your life as a result of what you are experiencing now. It is all part of a greater divine intelligence unfolding in loving service to your own sacred life path. Trust in an unfolding higher plan. Know that all changes in your life serve your higher good.
WISDOM OF THE DIVINE FEMININE
Divine feminine wisdom empowers you to grow into your vision, your dreams and the fulfillment of your life purpose. Perhaps you envision a very different life for yourself to what you are experiencing now. This wisdom reminds you that you can experience even the most extraordinary dreams as reality if you willing to grow into what you desire, to become what you seek. Surrender any plans about how you can best manifest your dreams and, instead, allow life to guide and nourish you through your experiences each day. The Universe supports your divine destiny and is helping you become all you are meant to be.
When the wisdom of the Divine Feminine reaches for you, the message is clear: You are in a process of becoming more of heaven on earth. Sometimes, there are growing pains alongside the joy such growth brings. You may feel concerned, thinking your pain is an indication that you are failing in some way. You may judge your suffering as a sign that you are not operating at a “high enough” frequency.
When things are difficult or you are feeling doubt – when you feel the need to do something that scares you and challenges you at the depths of your being – you are experiencing growing pains. They will pass, and you will benefit from the growth. However, you need to know that, whilst this difficulty is in your life, the Divine is very much with you, encouraging you, believing in you so much that it will deliver a tough lesson. You can handle it for however long it needs to continue (and that won’t be forever).
The Divine Feminine speaks to you now and promises that if you are willing to show up to your life each day and trust in the circumstances before you, she will guide you into your most beautiful divine destiny. It is safe to trust her. She wants for you only the best and most beautiful life journey – one perfectly suited for all that you are and all that you can be. Your heart beats in perfect rhythm with the heart of love at the centre of our universe. Trust your heart, and trust life. All is progressing beautifully, as you are guided ever deeper into your divine fulfillment.
You are making a real contribution to the planet through your spiritual journey. Remember this and believe that your needs will be generously met by the earth and the Universe. What you are doing matters, and you will be supported.
The earth recognises you. She sees you as a conduit through which she is fed higher frequencies of light, love and divine presence. This assists her on the journey of her own evolution. Earth is an exceptionally beautiful and powerful divine being in her own right. Yet she, like every other being, benefits from the assistance of higher frequencies, which offer a loving hand to help raise her vibration and continue her evolution.
You are here to have your spiritual life journey in a human body. Part of that process will involve sharing your light with the earth, itself. This may see you take on the role of a healer, guide, mentor or teacher to others on the path. It may see you doing work with the natural world, with various earth-centred causes such as conservation and animal-welfare, organic and biodynamic farming and ethical food production. It may involve an active prayer life that is ongoing through your day, praying for assistance, compassion, clearing and blessing when you see and accident on the road, an animal or person who seems to be suffering, or an item on the news that you know needs light and healing.
From the most obvious gestures to the more subtle, you are powerful enough to make a meaningful contribution to the quality of consciousness upon Earth. Earth asks you to do your work with quiet confidence and dedication. She gives thanks for all you have done and acknowledges her love for you. She will support you in your work by providing material means for you, whilst you are here on this planet. What you are doing matters. Yes, you are going to expand and grow in the work you are doing and the impact that you have in the world, because you are capable of that. Keep working, shining and growing, dear one. Your presence here is so needed and honoured.
Wowzer! Those were some very strong cards and I love the fact that the Divine Feminine came out (as she is part of the Moon energy and an aspect of the New Moon). How did you feel about your card/s? Well delicious one, wishing you amazing New Moon wishes, crunchy leaves and bowls of warm soup. Go light a candle and offer yourself and others a beautiful blessing and remember that you are perfectly wonderful and amazing just as you are! Huge hugs and squeezes! See you next week.
