Full Moon in Virgo: Live Your Best Life Now

On February 19th we have a Full Moon in Virgo. A moon that’s being fallen a super full moon, due to its close proximity to the Earth.

This Full Moon is setting the assignment of living your best life now.

And, if you are not, then it’s super likely that you are feeling the frustration, angst, irritability, anger and annoyance.

For some this is playing out as simmering and quiet frustration. Whereas, for others we are seeing sudden outbursts of frustration. However, it plays out for you it may well be worth taking the time to identify the real issue at play and steps you can take to change things.

This really is about taking personal responsibility for what you can do. Focusing more attention here, rather than on the things you cannot control.

Here are some additional intuitive Full Moon musings and support:

Illumination

The Full Moon shines a light on what’s going on beneath the surface. Those hidden emotions, fears and shadows that have been ignored or suppressed. However, this Full Moon is illuminating things that you may not have been aware of. Now, depending on what is revealed, this has potential to really stir things up both within and without.

The key is to be objective.

Using your inner wisdom to support you in moving beyond repeating old conditioned responses. Flipping your perspective so that you can learn, change or heal from what is being illuminated.

When you do this you see that what is being illuminated is actually supporting you in aligning with those intentions set at the time of the February New Moon.

Self care

There’s a sense of wanting to look at self care. Not only as a #selcaresunday pastime but as something that you do on a daily basis.

Ask yourself the questions:

  • How do you take time to care for and nurture yourself daily?
  • How do you show up for yourself?
  • Am I taking care of me or just giving, giving, giving to others?

This kind of self care is about creating balance and harmony from the inside out.

Use this time to make some simple (or radical) adjustments to your routine. It could be your morning, evening or beauty routine that needs a little shake up. This is about practical change though. Things that you can do on a regular basis that fits in with all of the other things that you have to do. Virgo is practical and realistic. It’s an Earth sign. So, this isn’t about going wild.

Whatever it is be sure to make those adjustments so that you feel energised, aligned and beautiful from the inside out.

Follow through

Although the Full Moon is about endings, competition and closure, Virgo energy is creating that sense of finishing what you started.

This could relate to a project, business, relationship or self development.

Maybe you know you’ve not really been investing as much time and energy as you could have. You’ve had all the talk and good intentions, yet not truly followed through. Maybe, the truth is you’re just not feeling it anymore and it’s time to let go or put it on the backburner.

Discover what the truth is for you and dig deep to find the courage to change.

Identify the first steps and build on from there. Brainstorm a to-do list of steps to take, people to contact and actions to take. Journal it out.

#fullmoonvibes: Beauty

In the spirit of reinvention and the Full Moon in Leo vibes don’t be afraid to be playful and go bold.

If RiRi’s style of glitter and sparkle is not your thing, then bring it down a notch with adding a little sparkle to your nails or eyeshadow palette.

Leo loves to sparkle and shine. Isn’t about time you do too?

On the flip side the energy is a little intense your now. I, for one have felt and will be slowing down more over the weekend.

If you’re feeling it too then may be you want to slow down too. Doing So, in whatever way feels good for you.

Meditate with your fave crystal to help relax your body, mind and spirit and bring you closer to connecting to the soul wisdom that lies within.

Seeing as Leo is inspired by the heart why not bring your fave heart chakra opening stones into your meditation practice – Rose Quartz, Chrysopase or Jade.

With love 💋✌

#fullmoonvibes: Letting Go + Reinventing

When you let go it makes sense to fill the space with positive energy. Energy that feels good and is in alignment with the real you. Irrespective of the opinions of others.

A bit like the Leo Queen herself, Madonna. She’s reinvented herself many times over the years and is never afraid to be herself.

What’s stopping you from being seen and from showing up as You?

The woman you are becoming is not afraid to show up as her best self. She isn’t afraid of being seen and she isn’t hiding in the shadows.

What do you need to release, cease doing, saying or telling yourself in order to be in alignment with her?

And for the guys eyeing this. This applies to you too. You’re all seeing this for a reason.

Don’t rush. Take your time. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You may even need to dig beyond the limiting stories you’ve inherited and labels you have placed on yourself before you reconnect with the real you.

With love ✌💋

Full Moon 101

The energy of the Full Moon has been making it self known, to me at least, over the last few days. I felt it hit me out of the blue on Monday afternoon and it’s effects have been with me all week. Anyone else?

For the benefit of those who are new to working with the Full Moon, here is a brief Full Moon 101. Please note, this is based on my own understanding, research and experience of Full Moons + working with its energy.

Full Moon in Leo. Eclipse season.

Now, Full Moons have a tendency to stir up the emotions that are lying beneath the surface. Those emotions that have been suppressed and ignored, as well as those that you may not be aware of.

When the moon is full she shines her light on these so that you can see them and feel their energy.

What you’ll often find is that these emotions are in direct opposition to what you say you want to feel and experience more of in your life.

EXERCISE
Think about the intentions you set at the last New Moon or the goals you have yourself for this month/year.

Are the limiting emotions that are coming to the surface now serving you in aligning with those intentions and goals?

Let’s put it this way: If you kept thinking those thoughts, taking those actions, practising those behaviours and emiting that vibration would you receive what you say that you want?

If the answer is no, then you are seeing the gift that the Full Moon in bringing you.

Obviously, this can work the other way too. Whereby, as much as you can see what isn’t serving you. You can also see what is serving you too.

THE GIFT OF THE FULL MOON
The gift of the Full Moon is to shine a light in the darkness, so that you can see what’s been hidden.

This is why working with the energy of the Full Moon can be so useful in guiding you toward aligning with what you want and more importantly, who you truly are.

The only trick is to not resist what’s being highlighted and felt. As I’m sure you already know, resistance restricts the flow and this where you can come up against blocks or feeling like you’re stuck.

Which is why many people find that the Full Moon is a time where they let go, so they can let in what will help them to experience whatever is needed at a soul level for their healing and alignment. Hopefully you’ll find it does the same and more for you too. Let me know in the comments below.

Full Moon in Cancer + Spiritual Beauty Ritual

The Winter Solstice brought the energy of a hidden new beginning. An opportunity to guide yourself out of the darkness and into your light. Doing so by setting clear intentions about:

  • What you want to release
  • What you want to experience
  • Who you want to become

An opportunity that may have been lost in the hustle and bustle to do, to buy and impress during this holiday season.

The Full Moon builds on this energy of releasing and embracing a new beginning. An opportunity of a fresh start and clean slate. However, this clean slate is not given. It is created by You! Created through your intentions and soul-inspired actions.


FULL MOON ENERGY

When the moon is full it shines at it’s brightest. Illuminating anything that’s been hidden in the darkness.

A Full Moon governs our emotional energy. So, it shines a light on those emotions that you’ve been hiding and suppressing or even ignoring. Bringing them to the surface to be seen, to be felt and to be transmuted.

This is an important part of the law of attraction process and general self development. Yet it’s a process that not many want to partake in. Having a preference for flying high and living in the upper chakras. Forgetting that we live in a material, physical world and that energy needs to flow – in and out, in order for us to live fully and sustain our manifestations.


FULL MOON IN CANCER

A moon in the sign of Cancer is very much at home and in its comfort zone because Cancer is governed by the moon. Therefore a Cancer Full Moon will throw the spotlight on:

  • The home
  • Family
  • Relationships
  • Femininity
  • Memories of the past
  • Comfort zones

Although you’ll do well to remember that our personal astrology chart and own soul growth may also have an impact on the themes that are highlighted for you at this time. This is why your personal awareness is so important, especially when working with the energy of the Moon.

Cancer is also the sign of the Mother, divine feminine, caregiver and nurturer. She is the natural healer and is deeply intuitive, with a hidden inner strength that few may be aware of. Cancer also likes her creature comforts and taking trips down memory lane.


WAYS TO WORK WITH CANCER FULL MOON

1. In her shadow Cancer can have a hard time letting go of the past. Yet her on point intuition will often guide her to do exactly that and her inner strength will support her to do this with as much ease and grace as possible. So, give yourself permission to facilitate the process of letting go of who or what no longer serves you, especially as you head into 2019.

2. The embodiment of the Divine Feminine energy with her perfect blend of feminine gifts, vulnerability, compassion and inner strength. A Cancer Full Moon brings about more opportunities to awaken your own feminine energy and really step away from old paradigms in a search of something new, real and uniquely you.

3. The Mother who wants peace, happiness and love to prevail in the home. Cancer will go above and beyond to make sure others are happy, watered and feed. Nurturing and loving, sometimes to the point of smothering when in the shadow. Look at where you could either be nurturing more or smothering less. Get the perfect mix to maintain that flow of energy.

4. Cancerians are private (I know bevause I am one). They go within before going without. Tune into where you are being called to go within, connect to your own intuition or simply take stock and rest.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Capricorn Sun energy (Capricorn is Cancers opposite sign) and Cancer Moon energy brings the opportunity to ground, whilst also nurturing yourself from the inside out.

One way to do this is to enjoy a Full Moon bath. Think scented candles and relaxing music to set the right mood.

Fill your bath with Himilayan or Epsom salts, both of which are known for the cleansing properties. Choose a crystal that compliments the energy of what you want to work on during this Full Moon eg: Rose Quartz for forgiveness or Smokey Quartz for energy clearing. Place it in the bath or around the bath tub. Work with the energy of the Moon to release and let go.


Don’t be surprised if colds, flu or just plain old fatigue hit you rigjt now. I know its hard at this time of year but try not to resist it. A purging of energy is taking place or your body is saying it wants to rest.

However you choose to work with the energy of this Full Moon be sure to enjoy it and work with the energy. Most of all, try to make the most of spending time on your own. Resting and beautifying yourself from the inside out. You are worth it.

Top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals to use under the Gemini Full Moon

Well, today brings the Full Moon and boy is it making its presence known.

The Full Moon is a time of release and letting go. A time when your emotions will rise to the surface. Opening your eyes to what you need to deal with in order to stay aligned with becoming your true self and making your vision a reality.

However, at the time of a Full Moon, the energy can be intense, emotional, highly charged and overwhelming for moon sensitives. Something that can often lead us to react in haste and create resistance or drama. Yet, the easiest way to work with this energy is to make peace with your past and honor yourself. So, let’s explore my top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals that support you in doing that, whilst being the best version of yourself.

Step out of the darkness & into your light (10)

INNER BEAUTY

Forgiveness

Cleanse and detoxify from any emotions that vibrate lower down the energy scale by practicing forgiveness towards yourself and others. Reflect on who has ruffled your feathers over the last 4 weeks, as well as those associated with emotions that are currently rising to the surface.

For a specific person imagine the person is sat in front of you. You are both surrounded by a sphere of white. As you look that person in the eye repeat: “I forgive you. I release you. I let this and you go with love, with love and with grace. You go your way and I’ll mine. It is done. It is done. It is done.”

To enhance your ability to connect with the energy of forgiveness recite these words whilst listening to your favourite meditation music or binaural beats.

Gratitude

When people release they often forget to fill the space they’ve opened up with energy that feels good and aligns you with your desires. Then they tend to fill the space with the same crap from before. Therefore it’s wise to lay the foundations of what you want to experience through a daily practice of gratitude.

Each morning before your feet hit the ground say ‘thank you‘ and find 10 things to be grateful for. Say your gratitude list in your mind or write it down in a journal. Writing is a powerful way to impress your desires upon your mind and it really enhances the feeling if you give a reason why you are grateful too. Try these: “I am grateful to have _______ because ________.” “I am so happy and grateful for ___________ because ________.”

Let Go

Honour all that is coming up for you at this time and give yourself permission to let it all go. When you release what isn’t serving you, you will make room for something or someone better to take its place. Most importantly, you open the space for releasing the lower vibrational energy attached to that emotion, of which is contributing to making your current reality what it is. Perform this Letting Go ritual from my free ebook ‘She Let Go’.


OUTER BEAUTY

Be Seen

The moon shines brightest when she is full and so should you!

Gemini energy resonates with the throat chakra: communication, your voice, how you listen, speaking your truth…… The colour for this chakra is blue and incorporating more of this colour into your life can facilitate in strengthening it. Colours carry their own vibration which we can tap into. An easy way to do this is through our style, make-up and nails. Cleopatra style with a bold blue eyeshadow or embrace the winter nails look with blue polish.

Energy cleanse: Ritual Baths

Your skin is the largest organ of your body for detoxification. One way that you can aid your skin in releasing toxins from your body is by enjoying the ritual of a cleansing salt bath. It is also a beautiful way to blend together both the body and the spirit/your inner and outer beauty.

For centuries both Himalayan and Epsom salts have been known for containing minerals that help to remove toxins from the body, improving your health, skin conditions, relieving stress and clearing your energy field. Set the mood by lighting a candle and having your favourite crystals close by, before adding 2-3 handfuls of your chosen salt into your bath an soak for 20 minutes or so. As you relax in your bath set the intention to let go of all energy that is no longer serving you and welcomes in energy that supports your Highest good.


This Full Moon has the potential to really support you in preparing for 2019, so it’s well worth working with the energy to get aligned. So, enjoy working with the energy!

With love xo

Scorpio New Moon: Release, Reset + Receive

“The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin

It’s New Moon time. A time that’s known for setting new intentions, planting new seeds and starting new projects. This New Moon brings transformation and mystery. It’s also a good time to go within + develop your own spiritual gifts and Divine connection.


RELEASE

This New Moon asks us to go within, notably noticing our shadow side and anything that really isn’t serving you. Being courageous enough to cut ties with anything or anyone that doesn’t support your inner and outer transformation.

Yet, what comes through is a need to look more within when you are looking for those barriers, obstacles and ties. The sense is that these may well be your own shadows and fears. So, use the gift of self-awareness mixed with kindness towards yourself when moving through this process.

Support: She Let Go guidebook and Dissolving cords blog


RESET

Reset by setting new intentions for yourself and the area(s) of your life that really has your attention right now or the one that you’ve been neglecting.

Set intentions that will support you in showing up as the best version of yourself. That version that’s living your desired life and that you’ve always wanted to be.

Don’t forget to bring in your angels and guides to support you. You don’t have to go through this alone. In fact, any help that you can find that will keep you on track and aligned will be beneficial. Your future self and life are relying on this. Choose wisely and trust your intuition.

Support: New Moon Ritual


RECEIVE

Releasing and resetting will pivot you in a new direction that supports you in aligning with your desires and following through on your transformation. Openness and vulnerability will be companions as you prepare to receive the manifestation of dreams into reality.

Full Moon in Taurus spotlight: Relationships, Beauty + Money

The relationships that stand the test of time are those built upon solid foundations.

Relationships of all kinds are up for review with the energy of the Full Moon in Taurus, with Venus Retrograde still sitting in the background.

I’ve been taking inventory of mine. Building upon the intentions set at the time of the previous New Moon and beginning of the Venus Retrograde. Those relationships that were obscuring the view have been lovingly moved along. Only those built upon solid foundations will naturally follow me on my onward journey.

The message for this time is typical of a Full Moon, yet all the more prominent at this time:

Don’t be afraid to let go of what or who no longer fills your cup.

Taurus energy is grounded. Hard working. Whilst also enjoying the finer things in life, including looking good.

Do you feel worthy of the good things in life?

Do you give yourself permission to look and feel beautiful on the outside too?

The affirmations of:

  • I am worthy.
  • I am deserving.
  • I am more than enough.

All come into play when Taurus energy is around. Because an aligned Taurus soul believes in themselves!

Ultimately, allow the Full Moon to shed light on what is ready to be released in order for you to expand and become the best version of you. And remember as you give yourself permission to do this you will unconsciously give others the permission to do the same.

Transformation. Evolving. Dissolving resistance at the Full Moon.

ANGELIC REIKI

The new season has brought with it the energy of change and transformation. Something that many of us at experience at our own level.

I’ve found that transformation, growth and evolving will bring with it that sudden rush of excitement, wonder, curiosity, and hopefulness. This is often followed by resistance. Fear. Guilt.

The happy hormones take a break and give your cells some time to catch up with the all the newness that you are conjuring up!

In my own world, I have tended to find this a week where resistance tends to be at it’s strongest under the gaze of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon heightens our emotions. Bringing to the surface all of the things and people that are in opposition to that which we want to experience, especially in relation to the intentions set at the time of the New Moon. So, this has become a time that I have used this time to “go with the flow” as much as I possibly can. Rather than resisting what is coming up, I’ve tried to flow with it and allow it to be released.

So, I know that sometimes is much easier said than done!

This is especially the case when the old ways, old faces and old places resurface. Reminding you of what needs to be released or shifted to support you in aligning with the new.

To support you through this I’ll share my own magical keys for working with the energy of the Full Moon to facilitate transformation and evolving:

TUNE IN

Your body will tell you when it needs to rest. Your intuition will let you know when it’s time to pause or move forward. Your soul team will guide you towards what is for you right now. Tune in. Do so with meditation, prayer, writing or awareness.

PRAYER

A simple prayer focused towards the solution. One of my favourites is:

“Thank you for showing me where to go, what to do and what to say to whom.”

Another of my favourites is: “I surrender.” Two simple words that can lighten the load. An invitation to God and soul team to take the reins.

CONNECTION

Connection to self or like-minded people. Somehow they both tend to lead back to one another. To fill you up and raise your vibration. To bring you back to centre when you fall.

In the Full Moon ebook, I have also included further tools and practices from my own spiritual vanity case.

I will leave you here, yet I truly hope that you will pivot towards releasing (or whatever else you feel you need right now) so that you can stick with your new intentions, desires, and transformation.

If you could do with a little something extra I will share some notes of inspiration here too.

New Moon Time: Step into the real You!

chanelmarie

And what a hell of a new moon this one is.

Over the last few days, I’ve been going through a bit of an energy clearing. Initially, I thought it was a bug due to the sudden change in weather. On remembering the forthcoming New Moon eclipse, I knew this was a purging of energy. An upgrade was on the cards and from the conversations, I have been having it would seem that I am not the only one experiencing the purge.

So, what’s the deal with this new moon?

Intuitively I’m feeling that as much as it’s about calling in the new; which is typical to new moons. It’s also about preparing yourself energetically and mentally for what it is that you want to experience.  Ultimately, it’s about stepping into the real you.

For those of light warriors and hot mess goddesses of light, it’s also about us stepping fully into our light. No more pussyfooting around it’s all or nothing now.

Trust me, I’m getting the universal kick up the bum too. #togetherwerise

In order to step up, you also have to do some clearing out of the old, which can often live you in this space of limbo between the old and new. Thankfully, the New Moon will support us to close that gap by working with it to begin that process of visioning who it is that you want to be!

Obviously, you can think about the things that you want to manifest and experience but this moon is more about YOU! Who you are becoming and who you want to become. In some cases, who you are currently moulding into isn’t necessarily who you desire to be. If that’s the case, it’s as good a time as any to make that change!

How to make the most of it

Be super clear about what it is that you want to experience and call into your life. This isn’t a time for being modest or playing small either. Dream big yet be sure to make it all manageable for yourself, as well as calling in necessary support, to avoid feeling overwhelmed or giving up at the first hurdle.

Cos there will always be hurdles!

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What is feasible to call in, experience and step into over the coming months?
  • Then take it long term: What do you want to experience further down the line?
  • What can you do to align with the woman that lives that life?

The key message coming through is: The work you do on yourself is an inside job yet it will resonate on the outside too.

Lately, I’m coming across a few women wanting to make changes to their outer appearance too. Think diets, new clothes and upping their beauty game. If that’s you then you go for it. Don’t let people deceive you into thinking that it’s not important. If it’s important to you and is being guided to up your game:

Go for it! This is all about you stepping into the woman that you were created to be.

Leo energy is bold, proud and doesn’t mind standing out from the crowd. I mean just look at Jlo and Madonna. Both are unafraid to change their image or look their best!

And, it goes without saying that it’s a time to set intentions. With the vibe of Leo being bold, fun, creative, joy and expressive then it’s a no-brainer that your intentions will be to do with what brings you in alignment with all of that!

Ultimately…….

You will find that some doors are closing and others are opening. Will you keep banging on or returning to the door that’s closed or the ones that are opening up? Often to do the latter requires a new You. Will you let the new You emerge?

This New Moon is really all about You! It’s about getting yourself aligned and feeling good from the inside out. So, whatever is falling apart or whoever is drifting away: Let it!

If you need a hand, I am at the end of an email, ready to help you to help yourself! This is your time, pretty lady!

With love
