You can look forward to Monday 8th April as a good day to grab by the horns!

Creative energy abounds!

You’ll be able to see past challenges and work around difficulties rather than feeling pessimistic about outcomes. Part of this will be your ability to accept and detach from any particularly disappointing outcomes easily, rather than fixate on why something didn’t turn out the way you wanted. You’ll be able to more easily move forward to the next great thing and realise that a closed door is nothing but redirection to celebrate life more fully than if the other thing happened!

We are reminded to be fearless, over and over by this feisty Aries energy in the face of all the mass media fearmongering and focus upon war and destruction and the cost of living hikes. We cannot ignore what is happening, but we must not immerse ourselves in the despair of it. We will become consumed. We are here on Earth at this time to rise above all of these challenges and be love.

Emanating love and kindness is how we rise and inspire others to do the same. With boundaries of course! Aries will certainly help to assert ourselves lovingly. You can say no in loving ways when tested by those who don’t respect your boundaries.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth.

It casts a shadow on Earth that either fully or partially blocks the Sun’s light in some areas, resulting in either a total or partial eclipse.

It will begin on Mexico’s Pacific coast and travel through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

According to Nasa, small parts of Tennessee and Michigan will also experience the total solar eclipse.

The eclipse will head into Canada through Southern Ontario, and continue through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton.

The UK and Ireland unfortunately won’t experience totality when it comes to this eclipse. As the sun sets, the partial eclipse will be at 19:54pm GMT/UT.

And some parts of the UK won’t see anything different at all.

The amount of eclipse seen will vary by location, however, Wales, Scotland, northwest of England and the deep Southwest will have the best luck.

The whole of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will also see the partial eclipse.

Eclipse energy shakes us up and demands we take some positive action somewhere, especially to correct any wrongs or procrastination.

It’s also important to note that the new moon and eclipse are happening during Mercury retrograde, which began on April 1.

Mercury retrograde, notorious for its technogremlin communication interfering energy, will be on steroids on the 8th – you might hear from someone from your past or notice some extra technical issues throughout the day.
Remember – the past has nothing new to offer you on this day – avoid getting drawn in to the chaos of other people.

This is the best time of year to literally plant new seeds of self sufficiency, we can grow our veggies and salad in window boxes if need be.
We can plant those seeds metaphorically too, new ideas, dreams, begin new habits and practices all contribute to our sense of personal power being reclaimed from the fear we are being bombarded with.
In being fearless, we make space for living how we wish to be, in the moment.

Spiritual practices and tools will help greatly in this. I speak from my own experiences in times of great challenge, my spiritual toolkit has kept me sane and even thriving in times when the material world tells us to despair and be consumed by fear.

Meditation, cleansing and healing modalities, keeping my home clear of negative energies, and daily commitment to working on my mental and physical health has been the greatest gift to myself, and continues to be.
No good moment in any day is wasted or futile.

This is how we thrive again. One step at a time.

For me, a tiny thing like listening to birdsong or cloud watching at this time of year instantly lifts me and fills me with gratitude for our beautiful planet in less than a minute.

Red jasper, carnelian, or garnet can amplify your energy during this day’s meditations, hold in your dominant hand or have close by as you relax.

What will you do?
Questions and thoughts to ponder:

What small thing can I do today to help myself feel in control of my feelings and thoughts?

  • How can I help myself to feel more powerful in loving ways?
  • What can I grow at home to feed myself and my family?
  • How do I feel when I watch or listen to mainstream media news? Where do I get my news from now on?
  • When was the last time I went for a walk or sat outside listening to nature for a moment or two?
  • Who in my circle drains me? Who lifts and supports me? I will make more space and time for the latter.

More power to you in manifesting and dreaming up your chosen reality.

It really is a powerful time to move forward with hope.

Sending you magical new moon healing energy,
With love

I have space for you evening UK time on the 8th for distant cleanses and healing if you need some support.
