It’s the 13th of July and in the UK we are preparing, amidst what is to be our first pretty intense heatwave, for a Super Full moon in Capricorn.
I, like us all by August, currently find myself not only requiring grounding in the energies around me but the potential we are all being faced with.
Like the Mountain goat, foundations will or rather have depending on when you read this, crumbled.
Not just in the political arena but in regard to time, and how we master our own divinity within it.
In layman’s terms, flow and creative expression, intuition- something I am offering a development group about on a fornightly basis- details of which can be found here: https://fb.me/e/cVKolefsg alongside soundbaths, pain clinics, taster study days and my usual services which can all be found either on my website, areas I work in, or Facebook page.
Now that I have openly and honestly, without gimmicks, shared what I offer and who I am I can move onto the supportive energies around me. An undercurrent message around not only this Full moon but from the solstice just gone up until the next. To truly harvest who we are with pride, for all to see, ourselves included, becoming the guiding Chariot for 2023.
As I feel into this “Buck” moon, I know I’m not too late to add information but I don’t sense the desire to go over old patterns.
Originally a mere few days ago, I shared a video and wrote a short blog speaking exactly of this.
I couldn’t create it, spirit stopped me- thankfully it literally fell on deaf ears.
I had forgotten “by accident” to turn on the sound, so the recording was only relevant to those who could lip read and the blog didn’t happen as I went home.
To be with those that were important to me.
Stopped being a stubborn old goat against the you-niverse and decided to listen to the underlying message behind my in-conveniences!
To embrace the reality of being my own boss, my own governing body, by listening to my physical self.
Here I could step into a flow that worked for me, not the other way round.
Sure this brought up root based fears, old stories regarding money, guilt, “doing my bit” speaking what was necessary etc etc and I just want to add for pure emphasis another grammatically incorrect ETC!!!
The post included tales of “bucking” oneself up amongst the struggles and reconnecting to a higher guidance as the male deer sheds their antlers.
There’s no judgement there for any who speak this, even myself now and a few days ago, but going over it just leaves me unnecessarily drained.
It’s this that we must collectively take forward!
A knowing that time is the greatest gift, not only in it’s divinity but by being in it, of it, embracing it- here in the space of deep connection only available in the moment can we truly see what is and could occur.
The transformative vibration not only palpable in the air, behind this Thunder full moon but excitably becoming more and more available as we enter the frequency of next year- the chariot, the Tower!!!
Change at it’s greatest expression!
Thankfully, being originally a midwife and now “Heyoka” I am able, for the most part to be in one place, aware of past influences and future potential as a result, by taking only my skills forward!
It’s that you are now reading, welcome to the creative ability of a shaman, the higher vision being asked of by us all now.
When Lara from Tweedy clothing suggested I write a blog for august in June, this didn’t really perplex me.
Until I had to stand in the fire needed to create it!
It is this we are and will be leading up and into by the month of August.
Let me explain.
It is one thing to know what we are capable of but another to “walk the talk” so to speak, the biggest message behind the energy we are either about to step into or currently in, depending on where you are at when reading this.
That’s the turning point, literally, the thunderbolt!
Where are we at, in each moment, for without that nothing is clear or can be shifted!
This truth is essential with of course the necessary humour, to ride this crazy wave of life, albeit at times, like this blog, backwards!
So as mentioned I am currently writing this “peace”, which you the reader will be able “to see” now on my page and next month on Tweedy’s, but in reality was conceived back in June with the solstice!
In this time of trippy uncertainty the only true constant is going to be change.
So if you are still with me, here is how to best navigate the choppy seas of August’s potential, In July or basically whenever.
Capricorn is a mountain goat but also a sea creature.
Hard-working, diligent, able to access higher views and horizons it does so by tuning in to the waters, the energy in motion and allows this to navigate each step.
So in truth any advice behind this is relevant for anytime and that’s the beauty of this full moon, of the Heyoka- there is no logical understanding, no room for separation of intuition and action.
They are one and the same.
Thunder and lightening.
Collective and individual
Like all stages of the moon
All parts of life
They are, we are, the micro and macro of all things.
If this hasn’t sunk in yet it will and this shake up of inner-ligtenmet will be the collapse of all structures that were built to destroy this, our own and external for if you hadn’t quite got it yet…. They are reflective mountains of our own restrictions we must now leap over!
This month, whichever that may be for you, we are being asked to travel light knowing we are always the Fool, the Sacred clown, upon the hero’s journey and decide what we are carrying forward.
Who or what has stayed the distance.
Through the up’s and downs.
Became a stable part of your own journey
By reflecting on how much we actually can and need to take from each situation
This blog included, which you can read completely and discover hints for August or leave for now knowing that the ultimate message is, whatever is relevant for your highest version is now available and it is up to you to see it by appreciating and moving on from the steps you have walked.
Loyalty is the guiding force behind each Leo heart sometimes to it’s detriment, this will bring many lightbulb moments needed to unknot our desires.
In the next six weeks having planted any seeds with the solstice we are given an opportunity to celebrate this balance by recognising those still with us.
In these times of hard-ship we get to see just how and with whom we relate, ourselves included. To admit which connections have set sail with out us and those that have remained in the port alongside us until ready to leave where we have been, together as a fleet.
With this reflection we can find our own still point, our inner compass, rather than be distracted by outside influences that are no longer relevant- old stories, traumas, ideas, employment, homes, beliefs- people- even our old selves.
Here we will connect to our own potential and highest form of expression particularly as we enter the lions gate portal at the end of July culminating on the 8th of August.
In this void of energy, many would have felt from the Full moon today (my today anyway!) we were gifted an opportunity to become more free and flowing within our own ocean of uniqueness, by seeing just how all three energies can come into play- The sure footed goat, the open hearted lion and ourselves the human no longer willing to be hidden in our caves unseen!
The August full moon, named after the sturgeon, reminds us not to swim against the tide of how we understand or even understood (for many as we enter august flash backs, memories, visions even, will be increasing and ever questioned in regard to linear existence) time, but to float into the psyche and collective consciousness of our own highest or best life.
Of course this is going to need to be spoken and heard, by ourselves first and foremost so expect many who have been silent, witnessing and patiently waiting, to speak up, especially all those inner child’s within!
After all august is the mid point of the Leo season, we have swam, tread, waded and nearly drowned our way through July, now the lion is ready to be the King or Queen of the jungle they have always been and to do so they may need to be a little “roar”
Thankfully by the first week in august we step out of this endurance training, spiritual strengthening at it’s best and open, if we choose to of course, to our own level of inner mastery.
This will peak on the 8.8 portal where we will be given a chance, a second or even third or more potential to rebuild, provided we connect to the overall vibration of 2022.
The Divine Feminine.
Not in gender, polarities, even beyond the mother wound so many have felt but deeper in the nurture and expression of our own place here and the incredible manifestation available by going deep into the belly of what is called Pacha Mama (our Earth mother).
The reflective reason behind why we do anything!
This centre of infinity, of all things, space of creation itself is the undercurrent of our 8th month.
Here we re-emerge into the stream of our soul guided by Ayni, or right relations, reciprocity with all things, ourselves included and surface, treasure in hand with what many have been searching for- Purpose on a grander scale!
On that note I am going to share this blog for today, having just returned from writin the original for August and leave you with some suggestions downloaded on the solstice for next month or your now!
If that doesn’t boggle your mind wait until the New Moon at the end of August and the write up for September!
Here’s to trippy time hopping and the incredible journey’s now available!
“Sturgeon” Full moon- 12thAugust 2:36 AM UK time– An opportunity to highlight lessons learnt, witness and put in place practical steps towards service for a greater vision by recognising the Divine Feminine within us all
In the Zodiac sign of Aquarius- related to emotional freedom any aspects that restrict this will be brought to the surface emotionally- remember the moon governs water and we are two thirds fluid!
Governing the calf’s, Achilles tendons, forearms, thyroid and hormones– pay particular attention to how and where you stand, what you are carrying forward, your feelings about this and VOICE them!
Linked to the Strength and Star card in the Tarot- both adding up to the number eight- the month of August- this full moon or rather SUPER full moon- being closer to us and all aspects affecting us- is also connected to the Fool and Star Card in it’s own right being in the star sign of Aquarius.
Leaving us (poignant choice of words) with an opportunity to look at what we are really wishing for, the endurances we have walked to achieve it and the recognition that in order to succeed we must now let go and move forward- if we want new we cannot see things through the old vision- here inner sight will be the guiding light- listen to the body it will tell you what it doesn’t like!
It’s time to start “here-in” – there are many ways to do this from grounding exercises, breath work, intuitive development, ceremonies, essential oils, good diet, sound and of course the wonderful stone people
For the full moon I recommend- Clary sage for intuition, rose oil to open the heart and frankincense to clear away any residual doubt.
I personally prefer Palo Santo as an all round herb being both masculine and feminine, this “holy wood” clears, transmutes and brings it more balanced vibrations to the environment.
Crystals to work with would include- Tigers eye and carnelian throughout the month of August- linked to the zodiac Leo, good fortune and utilising creativity.
These fire stones were often worn and carried by warriors to boost courage, reduce excessive ego (I’m a Leo, married to a Leo- so I can totally relate!) and provide balance of both pride and modesty.
Other considerations could be haematite to detoxify past emotions and re-gain confidence, vitality and strength.
Labradorite to connect to the higher self, unite the water and fire energy left over from July and support the balance of passion and patience needed.
Moonstone to obviously connect to the moon but also emotions intuition and calm the mind.
Peridot to open the heart, aid the healing of emotional wounds, gain clarity whilst clearing the aura in preparation for fresh intentions on the new moon.
New moon 27th August 2022 08:16 UK time- After the shuffle and shake up of the full moon we have two weeks to “get our ducks in a row” as the new moon brings a time of clarity and order, acceptance of imperfections and trust in the flow we have discovered.
In the zodiac sign of Virgo-we will be shown any areas of obsessiveness, our own limits of practice, where we can expand and improve, what we now need to re-search within our own inner-tuition and how we are going to put in place the steps needed to harvest metaphorical seeds planted not only in June with the solstice but through awareness of being open to what we truly want with the full Moon in august!
Again it is here we must see time form a more Divine perspective and be open to it’s flow.
This may bring up many emotions that have been hidden, remember the new moon is linked more to our “shadow” unseen self and can affect our pancreas, intestines, digestion, eyes and ears as a result.
Connected to the Hermit card in the Tarot and the Moon– we have seen what we want and the new moon asks what we are going to do about it.
What practical steps we need to put in place, knowing that we can only give from where we are, if we want more, we must give more, to ourselves also.
I recommend working with Peppermint for digestion, chamomile to aid a good nights sleep from all the potential overthinking and lavender oil for anxiety and stress alongside Patchouli to ground into our root chakra.
Crystals to best aid would include- Green jade to support our goals and gain a critical eye for detail.
Moss agate to open the heart (Leo’s are nothing if not loving and loyal) and help promote the flow of giving and receiving.
Amethyst to see the bigger vision, soothe any stress in stepping into it, transform any resistance into acceptance and forgiveness (alongside rose quartz) and help align the spiritual logical conflict that may occur when being over analytical, a potential with both moon phases.
Red jasper to ground in the present moment (only from here can we actually see all timelines and potential) to also help build strength and stamina, and citrine for much needed joy, to step into something different, lighten the load, melt the ego and act on the abundance available, “manifesting stone” in hand.
Ultimately August, like any month, is an opportunity to step into our uniqueness, to support our own light to guide us forward and empower others to do the same– to reach for the stars of our potential and keep climbing towards it, like the good old Capricorn goat, we are being constantly reminded of what holds us back not to deter but spur us forward!
Connecting to this message, way way back in June, I shuffled the Tarot for what was then the daily guidance and now the overall theme.
Selected from behind the Ace of cups randomly, the open heart needed for August.
Tuning into the unknown, without looking as I always do.
Something well worth considering over the next few days, weeks, months, years, the trust of be-in with what is in front of us without assumption or need to figure it out.
As I did so, asking what crystals to include in this blog for the future energy I saw a golden jewellery spacer on my grass, along with tigers eye, citrine, carnelian and labradorite next to a seed and knew all the information we ever need is always right in front of us.
We just need to be look-in!
Turning over the two of Pentacles as I received “where would you like to see yourself by the end of August” I will leave you with a wonderful quote by the late great Albert Einstein
“We can not expect different results through the same actions”
Or as our dear Lara would say “do something your future self would thank you for!”
Until next time
In deepest munay (love)
