  • Monday 30th May @ 12:32 is the New Moon

    New Moon image png

    Monday 30th May @ 12:32 is the New Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my You Tube Page.

    It is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for 2022.  Focussing on what you want to manifest in your life is a really effective way of bringing harmony, balance and wellbeing into your life. Creating a Vision Board which illustrates pictorially how you envisage your goals taking shape, really helps to make the possibilities seem real and attainable and gives a source of reference later when you want to look back and compare what you set out to achieve to what has materialised in the interim.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New Moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. For full immersion with moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes. The next one is 25th October - 23rd November and costs £155.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we hold monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations.During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. Book at thHarmony Shop.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 Egyptian Alchemy Healing. Featuring four online modules of Khemitology (Ancient Egyptology according to the indigenous oral traditions), Violet Flame of Amenti, Mindful Chakra Balancing & Essene Angelology.Missed sessions are fully recorded so that late registrations or are possible. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 costs £266 and run about three times a year. the individual modules are stand-alone and cost either £88 or £66, hence the RSE 1 Package offers a cost saving. 

    A virtual Violet Flame of Amenti evening course recently completed on 26th May at a cost of £88. The Violet Flame is an ancient tool of alchemy and this course features over 6 hours of tuition, a manual and an attunement into the Violet Flame. Since the zoom sessions are recorded, it is possible to study the interactive material after the course has completed.

    Other services
    Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits. 

    Currently, MP3 meditations and distant readings and healings are proving popular and we offer Harmony Healing Vouchers for any value for use on Harmony Healing services andHarmony in Nature vouchers for Forest Bathing vouchers (£35).

  • Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, 25th August 2018

    Full Moon Lantern Festival in Hoi An Vietnam 25th August 2018Saturday 25th August is also the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, this is the Buddhist Festival of All Souls or the Festival of Hungry Ghosts, when offerings are made until before the next New Moon (9th September) to spirits who have not yet found rest.

    The Hungry Ghost Festival, also known as the Zhongyuan Festival, Takes place on the 15th day of the Ghost Month (which starts at a New moon), so it naturally co-incides with a Full Moon. This is the time when it was traditionally believed that the deceased would visit the living and are roaming in search of food, mischief-making and entertainment; hence it is sometimes referred to as the Chinese Halloween. 

    In many Far Eastern communities it is a time for big celebrations involving floating lanterns and feasts left out for the invisible visitors. The image to the right, taken by Amber Watkins, shows this year's Full Moon Lantern Festival in Hoi Ann, Vietnam, 25th August 2018.

  • Chinese New Year of the Pig, Tuesday 5th February

    year of the pig 2019Tuesday 5th February is the Chinese and Japanese Lunar New Year, following the New Moon. (there's still time to do your New Moon Abundance Cheques until 21.04 GMT tonight). Celebrate with vegetarian snacks and fireworks, drums and cymbals from sunset onwards. Spring clean your house in preparation and decorate with strips of red paper with messages of long life, health, wealth & happiness. Visit friends and family, buy new clothes, especially shoes and settle debts.

    The actual date of the Chinese New Year (also called the Spring Festival) changes from year to year.  This is because it is determined by the lunisolar Chinese calendar.  The festivities usually start the day before the New Year and continue until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the New Year.

    Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals, which are rotated from those in the Chinese zodiac. The twelve animals are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Similar to the Western zodiac, the Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 houses, but with the major difference being that each house lasts one year instead of one month. 

    In addition each year is allocated one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) and these are changed every two years. So after the New Year has occurred:

    Years ending in the numbers 4 or 5 = Wood
    Years ending in the numbers 6 or 7 = Fire
    Years ending in the numbers 8 or 9 = Earth
    Years ending in the numbers 0 or 1 = Metal
    Years ending in the numbers 2 or 3 = Water

    The Year of the Pig - a joyous year bringing good luck and prosperity - runs 5th February 2019 until 25th January 2020 (image above is licenced by CC0 Public Domain). The Chinese traditionally view pigs as having a beautiful personality and their big ears and chubby faces means they are blessed with good fortune.  TheEarth Pig specifically is associated with lightness and abundance however budgets should be carefully managed. It is advised that well-considered actions will be rewarded more than risk-taking in thisPig Year.

    The Chinese zodiac signs start with Rat and end with Pig so this is the close of a 12 year cycle. This indicates that it is a good time to take a break and review and learn from the previous 11 years. It should be a relaxing, motivating and happy year for most.  More from Chinesenewyear.net.

  • Equinox New Moon, Saturday 17th March

    New Moon image cropped toghtSaturday 17th March @ 13.11 is the Equinox Dark Moon this year, as well as being St Patrick's Day and the Roman Festival of Liberalia (see Blog entry below).

    This New Moon Abundance ritual  should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. There are video instructions on my Harmony Healing Facebook Page

    New Moons are good for setting intentions, so it's a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for the rest of 2018.  

     

  • Friday 12th February, Chinese New Year of the Ox

    Chinese New Year w goldFriday 12th February is Chinese, and Japanese, New Year of the Metal Ox which will last until Sunday 30th January 2022. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2021 is more of a lucky year for men and women born in the Year of the Ox, the Year of the Snake, the Year of the Rooster, and the Year of the Rat. Chinese New Year image by Antonia Skelton.

    The Chinese calendar rotates through 60-year cycles based on 12 earthly branches, each represented by an animal year, as well as five element years which are wood, fire, earth, metal and water.  2020 was the Year of the Metal Rat and 2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox. Each earthly branch is characterised, on a deeper level, by a yin or yang force and its own element.

    In the Year of the Rat, the force was the active, fast and hard, masculine yang energy whilst its element was water, known for being in constant flux. The ox’s earthly branch, in contrast, carries yin energy, which is feminine energy that is passive, soft and slow. Its element is earth, represents stability and nurturing. It is believed these characteristics of the ox and its associated energies have positive and favourable synergy.

    The sign of the Ox is the second animal of the Chinese zodiac and represents hard work, positivity and honesty that will be manifested in all of us in the coming 12 months, according to astrologers. In order, the 12 zodiac animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

    The Chinese Astrological year is governed by the lunar cycles. Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. 

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Friday 26th February, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £10 (+ £1 Paypal fee). During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme.

    If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucherfor a birthday or other celebratory occasion? 

    A number of virtual courses are now ready, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.

  • Friday 18th March, Equinox Worm Full Moon @ 07:20 GMT

    Equinox Worm Mull Moon Fri 18th MarchFriday 18th March @ 07:20 is Full Moon. This March Full moon is also known as the Worm Moon, and with its close proximity to the Equinox, we can call it the Equinox Worm Moon.

    Our Full Moon guided meditation is tonight at 7.30-9.30pm GMT, £20.Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (£1 admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates. There are multi-buy packages for regular attendees. Book at the Harmony Shop.

    Our next New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes is 1st - 30th April and costs £155.

    The Worm Full Moon image was created by Joanna for Harmony Healing.

    The Worm Moon, was so named by the Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Some Native Americans identified the Worm Moon with earthworm casts appearing as the spring warmth develops and hence the birds finding their food. Other tribes knew it as the Crow Moon, Lenten Moon and Sap Moon. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraphfor more on this).

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming.So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Alder Moon.  At this time of year the Alder is prominent and flourishing on the river banks, with its roots dipping in the water, offering itself up as a magical bridge between heaven and earth. Known as Fearn (pronounced Faerin) it is associated with Faerie Magic; an ideal time for spiritual decision-making relating to divination and prophesy, as well as for honing our intuitive skills. Alder twigs and flowers are well known charms in Faerie Lore, with Alder shoots being used to make whistles and flutes to commune with the air elementals. More about this atthoughtco.com and Celtic Weirdness website which seem to show the same basic information.  I'm not sure which one is the original source (if either).

    Lunar Cycle imageBetween Full Moon and the next New Moon (1st April) is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.  Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. For full immersion with Moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes. The next one is 1st - 30th April and costs £155.

    Lunar Alignment
    This lunar cycle programme applies the transformational properties of spiritual alchemy to help you feel rejuvenated. It's a special one lunar month empowerment and attunement programme combining the solar & lunar balancing with various ceremonies throughout the month. The next Moon Alignment Programme begins with the New Moon on the 1st April and culminates with the New Moon on 30th April.
     
    Daily Practice and a Supportive Community
    We use an active WhatsApp group to work through the 28 Mansions of the Moon, as identifed in my sister Angela McGerr's Angel Almanac book) by connecting with the daily named guardian angels of the lunar cycle.  This enables us to utilise the supportive energy of each lunar phase to move through life challenges and embrace new opportunities.

     
    thumbnail new year new vision extra blue tiger 1Attuned and Aligned
    The current programme includes distant attunements to the Earth, moon, sun & stars (attunements take place on the New Moons plus the Full Moon). The cost to participate is £155. 

    This is intended to be a fun and participative event (though some activities will be recommended rather than compulsory), with members of the group supporting each other throughout the programme. Participants will be joining in from their home location, with at least 3 online virtual group mentoring sessions (totalling over 6 hours) and therefore receiving their attunements by distance, with e-mail and What's App support. See the above video to find out more. We ran it three times in 2021: January/February (taking in Imbolc), again April/May (taking in Beltane and the 555 numerology of the year) and finally October - November (taking in Samhain, which is also known as Halloween). It was a testament to the first course that eight of the original participants chose to repeat the course two months later, and three repeated it for a third time, and three repeated it again in January 2022.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 -our next interactive training course continues with Mindful Chakras (started 10th March) and Essene Angelology started 16th March.  Missed sessions are fully recorded so that late registrations are possible.

    Saturday 28th February @ 08.17 is Snow Full Moon. 

    Gabriel in corp coloursImage of Angel Gabriel (right) by Richard Rockwood, is taken from Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel cards; signed copies are available from the Harmony ShopClick here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel. 

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons, called the February Full Moon the Snow Moon. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. The Snow Moon is apparently named because historically it's been the snowiest month in America. Other tribes knew it as the Hunger Moonbecause it isn't conducive to hunting. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    It was thought the Celts also had names for each Full Moon of the year, however it seems this is a Neo Pagan belief first proposed by Robert Graves in his book The White Goddess published in 1948. In it, Graves reinvented the genuine early-medieval Irish ogham alphabet, purported to be based on trees, and created a Celtic Tree Calendar, naming 13 months after trees. Although it isn't an ancient tradition, being a tree lover myself and interested in Celtic words, I find it rather charming.

    So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Ash Moon (learnreligions.com). The Druids, venerated all nature but the three most sacred trees to them was the Ash, Oak and Thorn. The Ash tree features a great deal in Irish and Scottish folklore (the latter also including the Rowan, a form of Mountain Ash).  In the 12th Century, Marie de France wrote one of her famous lais about the Ash. The Ash is associated with rituals, magic and prophesy, making it a perfect choice for divining. Indeed, traditionally, more tools were made from Ash than any other wood, because it's not only very strong but it also resists shock (better than other hard woods such as oak or beech) making it an ideal choice for tool handles.  Ash berries were placed inside a baby's cradle to prevent the child being replaced with a 'changeling'. One of Odin's names in Norse is Ygg, which also means Ash, with the World tree, Yggdrasil, being an Ash.  Odin's spear was made from this tree. 

    Whilst writing a previous Blog article I wondered if our word 'ash' for something burnt was derived from the possible act of burning the magical tools (made predominantly of Ash) in an attempt to destroy the power of the Celtic Priests.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon (Saturday 13th March) is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. 

    Anyway, whatever the weather conditions, it's a fantastic excuse to get people of all ages outside in the fresh air and re-connecting with nature. Something our modern lifestyles and obsession with technology can distract us from doing...

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

  • Full Moon Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation

    Gabriel Image by Richard Rockwood, from A Harmony of Angels by Angela McGerrA Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel by Angela McGerr, from her A Harmony of Angels Book

    BECAUSE OF GABRIEL’S MOON INFLUENCE, YOU CAN USE THE TIME/POWER OF FULL MOON IN VARIOUS WAYS

    As Ruler of the Moon Gabriel can help you to draw on the true feminine power of the moon, allowing you to develop your intuition as well as understanding and realising your true potential.  Maximum time of benefit is the day of full moon.  Angels are usually thought to be without gender, but Gabriel is considered a feminine energy. You can use one of the following crystals to help in your invocations: moonstone, which is for developing inner wisdom and resources and learning to follow your hunches, or selenite, which is associated with the moon.  You could also use a general angelic stone such as milky quartz or angel hair quartz. 

    • Invoke Gabriel by name three times, and then ask her to help you focus the powerful energy of the moon to your heart and your mind, to develop your intuition, in Love and Light, Love and Light, Love and Light.
    • Ask Gabriel to completely surround you with protective pure white light during this meditation.  In your mind see the radiance all around you.
    • Imagine roots growing from your feet into the floor, anchoring and grounding.
    • Take some slow, deep breaths in and out and focus on your inner self
    • Feel yourself relaxing and going deeper.  Let external sounds become part of the background, and maintain your focus within heart. 
    • Visualise the meridian line within your body, extending downwards.  It reaches from the crown on top of your head, through the major chakras - your brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and finishes at the base of your spine, base/root chakra of your being.
    • Visualise the moon and imagine her pure light.  Draw this silver radiance down into your crown, which is your spiritual connection to the cosmos.
    • Next feel the energy filling your brow, reaching your intuition, subconscious and the world of your dreams. 
    • Now it travels down to your throat, which is your power of creative expression.
    • You can also ask for Gabriel’s help to focus the powerful energy of the moon to your heart, to clarify your life purpose.
    • Now imagine the energy flowing further down the meridian line and completely filling the column within your body, travelling down your legs and tingling in your feet.
    • Through your feet send energy to the heart of Mother Earth, and ask for her blessing on your life path and new aspirations.
    • Bring the power of Mother Earth back into your energy meridian.
    • Feel the combined powers of Earth and Moon filling the cells of your body.
    • Ask to understand your own true potential and for the ability to develop into it for your highest good.
    • Feel yourself filled with purpose and a renewed sense of direction.  Enjoy!

    Between Full Moon and New Moon, when the moon is waning (getting smaller) supports detox activities such as detox baths (with Epsom Salts or similar) and/or Oil Pulling actvities.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New Moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

  • Full Moon, 29th May 2018

    Supermoon 2014 08 10 22 04 16Tuesday 29th May @ 15.20 is the Full Moon. This Full Moon in May is also known as the Flower Moon.

    The Flower Moon,was so named by the Native American tribes because spring is officially in full swing by May with colourful blooms and flowers abundant over the  countryside. Different tribes label it as the Corn Planting Moon because of its association with crops being sown in time for the harvest and others identify it with its traditional brihtness hence naming it the Bright Moon and siome peole refer to it as the Milk Moon. See article in The Telegraph for more on this.

    Similarly, the Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. This is Huath (pronounced Hoh-uh); the Hawthorn Moon. The Hawthorn carries much raw masculine energy, carrying phallic qualities, and fire heralding a month of high male potency (following soon after Beltane) and hence fertility. The Hawthorn is also associated with the Fae (Faerie realm)and often grows near Ash and Oak trees, all of which attract the Fae.  Hawthornis used for magic drawing on masculine power which is good for making professional connections and business decisions. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website,which I stumbled across earlier this year.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition.  The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being a Super Blue Blood Imbolc Moon, I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Full Moon, Saturday 4th November 2017

    Gabriel Harmony Angel CardSaturday 4th November (Friday night/Saturday morning) is the Samhain Full Moon at 05.23.

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.

  • Full Strawberry Moon, 28th June 2018

    Thursday 28th June @ 05.54 (Wednesday night/Thursday morning, Solstice Full Moon). It's also known as the Strawberry MoonLotus Moon , Oak Moon, Cold Moon, Honey Moon, Mead Moon, Full Rose Moon or Long Night’s Moon.Supermoon 2014 08 10 22 04 16

    The Strawberry Moon, was so named by the Algonquin tribe because it heralded the perfect time to pick wild strawberries. Indigenous tribes - such as the Native Americans - were much more aligned with lunar cycles (rather than our 'solar' calendar) and used labels to identify each moon with events in nature which co-incided. See article in The Telegraph for more on this.

    Similarly, the Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. This is the Oak Moon, when they are appraching full bloom.  The oak signifies strength and power, typically towering over its fellow trees and was highly sacred to the mightly Druids. The oak is associated with invocations for fertility, strength, power, success and abundance. An acorn is meant to bring luck at interviews or business meetings, whereas catching a falling oak leaf is meant to bring health and wellbeing all year. The Celtscalled this month Duir,sometimes believed to be the stem word for druid and meaning door. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website,which I stumbled across earlier this year.

  • London Angel & Goddess Meet-up, Tuesday 11th July 2017

    On Tuesday 11th July, 7.15 - 9.15pm at the Phoenix Artists Club in the heart of London Theatreland, we held our first London Angel and Goddess Meet-up (£15 per head) since I took over earlier this year.  

    Joanna gave an overview of Essene Angelology and demonstrated how to call in angels using her sister - Angela McGerr's - technique.  Attendees were also give a one card angel reading to ascertain their priority at that time.

    Picking the summer to run our first re-launched meet-up might have been injudicious as it proved to be a day with few people available.  

    We had a very small group - just three of us - but it was really magical and the atmosphere at the Club was electric with it being very busy with diners and pre-theatregoers until it started to empty out at about 7.30 pm.  We've moved the next meeting start time to 7,30 to reflect the quieter atmosphere.

    the two ladies who attended were born on a Sunday and a Monday, so we called in Raphael (Sunday Guardian in Essene Angelology and also associated with the Sun) plus Gabriel (Monday Guardian and associated with the Moon).

    One of the Harmony Angel Cards later picked for the one card reading showed the sun and the moon, which seemed most apt.

    We've scheduled the next meet-up for Tuesday 1st August (£15 again), 7.30 - 9.30pm, when Joanna will be introducing some key Egyptian Deities, starting with the Egyptian Ennead pantheon of nine Gods and Goddesses. Joanna will also introduce the concept of original ancient Khemitian names which have a more authentic frequency for calling in the energies.

    See the London Angel and Goddess Meet-up Page for more and to book (names are needed for access to the Member's Club we use as a venue).  It's free to register as a Member of the Meet-up Group and then you will get notifications of events etc.

  • Lunasa Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

    Gabriel Harmony Angel CardMonday 7th August is Pagan Lunasa Full Moon at 19.11 and a penumbral lunar eclipse.

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.

    Click here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    Image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards. 

    We also have an umbral eclipse (ahead of the total eclipse 21st August visible across much of America), as the moon sweeps across the earth's shadow from west to east. More details from the EarthSky.org website, which includes a link to watch the eclipse live via a telescope in Rome, Italy. 

    Sadly, we won't see anything much here in the UK due to the timing of the eclipse taking place before the moon will have risen in the sky here.  This means we will only see a penumbral eclipse, where the shadowed part is a little more faint than the rest of the moon.  Our penumbral eclipse will take place between 16.50 and 21.50, peaking at 20.35 when, if there are few enough clouds to see anything, there will still be sun in the sky!  See timeanddate.com for full details of the UK experience...

    Whether the eclipse is visible or not, energetically we are all affected. Astrologically (summarised with thanks from astrostyle.com), lunar eclipses illuminate our shadow self,as defined by Carl Jung.  This can be a challenging experience, as many of us are not keen (or even open) to acknowledging and addressing our faults.  However, facing our suppressed emotions (such as anger, jealousy, greed) and confronting our fears provides a great opportunity to move forward in life; past what may have seemed to be insurmountable obstacles.  Accepting that we have faults and integrating this knowledge internally is very beneficial for our personal spiritual development.  

    The Full Moon has a gravitation effect on the Earth, hence leading to a tidal impact on our oceans.  Whilst it is has not been scientifically proven, it is logical to assume that this also has an impact on us as we are largely comprised of water (60-80% supposedly).

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition.  The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our feminine/yin archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    Weather permitting, outdoor moon bathing can be very therapeutic, simply breathe the silver energy in and out and, if the mood takes you, undertake an outdoor meditation.  It’s a wonderful time to put crystals (don’t put out any soluble crystals if it might rain) outside to be recharged by the lunar energy.

    The Angel Gabriel is the Guardian of the Moon in Essene Angelology, and thus this is a powerful time to undertake Angela McGerr’s Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel.

    Additional aspects brought in due to the astrology of this particular Full Moon, which is 15.25© Aquarius – 15.25© Leo (courtesy of universallifeforms.com and Angela McGerr’s Harmony Angel Cards for the angelic guardians). 

    Aquarius (air) brings humanitarianism, individualism, rebellion, pioneering determinism, independence. 
    The Angelic Guardian of Aquarius is Cambriel overseeing ambition, principles and ideals.

    Leo (fire) brings leadership, affection, generosity, extraversion, stubbornness, authority, courage, compassion.
    The Angelic Guardian of Leo is Verchiel overseeing courage, leadership and loyalty.

    Further energetic aspects are brought in by the lunar eclipse and the numerology of year 2017 which is a 10 and/or 1 and which also marked a unique planetary alignment staring on 7th  January 2017, a date which added up to 9 (7+1+2+0+1+7 = 9). Nine is the vibration of ascension. This date saw the start of a planetary alignment of all nine planets of our solar system (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) plus our sun = 10.  We understand this date was foreseen hundreds of years ago as being very auspicious, so this year so far has been very eventful for many sensitive individuals.  For many it has led to numerous developments, which on the whole have been very positive,

    The word eclipse is derived from the Greek ekleipsis,meaning abandon or vanish.  This is very relevant for the emotions experienced during an eclipse; as it brings the desire to let go of the superfluous parts of ourselves which are limiting our greater potential. Consider any emotional issues which came up around the time of the most recent eclipse back in February, this is the ideal opportunity to ‘let go’ of these issues. This August, the highlighted issues are relationships; whether with friends, family, lovers, community, or via political and societal systems, or specifically with yourself. Shine the illumination on all your relationships and through the energy exchange try to inject love and kindness, even in the face of pain, fear hurt and separation.  Try and isolate the parts of your body reflecting these emotions that no longer serve you and try to hold a vision of perfection and positive outcome in your heart. We need as many people as possible to be holding positive thoughts as this time.

    The influence of Aquarius brings the pioneering spirit of innovation and the humanitarian love which brings expansive opportunities. It is an opportunity to plough your own furrow and not simply to follow the crowds.  Eclipses provide the perfect energy for letting go for your Highest Good, the influence of Leo helps to make this less uncomfortable.

    Some other planetary influences include Jupiter square Pluto, empowering us to be seen, marks in weak conjunction with the sun, leads to an energy influx leading some sensitives to be having difficulty with sleeping. To combat this, try to combat any irritability and instil a degree of patience. Sirius opposing Pluto (also in weak conjunction with Venus) encourages the surrender of aggression and facilitates a kind and loving choice instead; emerging brighter and empowered and spiritually on-purpose.  Thanks again to universallifeforms.com for much of the material enabling me to write this post.

    On Tuesday 8th August we have the annual 8:8 Lions Gate, which brings its own influx of energy.  A Blog about this will be posted subsequently, in the meantime, you can find out more from my Celestial Forecast for August.

    Monday 7th & Tuesday 8th August is Joanna's Introduction to Reyad Sekh Em course. Cost is £200. 

    Reyad Sekh Em® (RSE) is an ultra high vibrational Egyptian Alchemy healing system which harnesses the angelic elemental healing rays of earth, air, fire, water and spirit with etheric crystalline energies plus sound vibration and sacred breathing.

  • Monday 12th April @ 03.31 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is New Moon, start of our 'New Moon New Vision' manifestation & abundance programme

    New Moon image pngMonday 12th April @ 03.31 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is the New Moon or Pagan Dark Moon.

    The energy of this time is great for new projects and manifestation! Follow the link in my bio for abundance rituals and more on my site.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page. 

    It is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for 2021. Creating a Vision Board which illustrates pictorially how you envisage your goals taking shape, really helps to make the possibilities seem real and attainable and gives a source of reference later when you want to look back and compare what you set out to achieve to what has materialised in the interim. Focussing on what you want to manifest in your life is a really effective way of bringing harmony and balance into your life. 

    This New Moon in April marks the start of my New Moon New Vision course runs 12th April to 11th May, taking in the Pagan Celebration of Beltane and the 555 numerology of 1st May. Join us for moon meditations, daily affirmations, vision board creation, manifestation and energy attunements! 

    The April/May lunar alignment programme follows a similar format to our New Year New Vision Lunar alignment course which we completed on the 12th February. Here's a typical response: 

    As we're almost at the end of the course, but still the beginning of a journey, I thought I'd share a few of the things that have changed for me during this moon cycle.

    I have more space within... I can literally feel it - possibly as a result of the Soul Star and Earth Star Chakras attunement, and also because of the releasing that has been happening over the last 2 weeks.
    I have recovered a routine which brings about a more productive day.
    My brain has tuned into the fact that I need to lose weight... I've let go of snacking, I'm having beautiful detox baths and have done the oil pulling. I am doing daily dance exercises.
    I am meditating more and got back on track with daily self-Reiki.
    I'm seeing the bigger picture.
    I am generally more focused.

    Such positive stuff for everyday living! 💜

  • Monday 16th May, Blood Moon @ 05:15 and Total Lunar Eclipse

    Flower Blood Moon

    Monday 16th May@ 05:15 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is Flower Moon & Total Lunar Eclipse

    Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called a Full Blood Moon Eclipse because of the orange-red glow the moon seems to adopt during the eclipse phase.  We have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditation tonight, see below for details.

    Although the eclipse won't be visible in UK or much of Europe, it will still affect us energetically. It will be visble in South/West Europe, South/West Asia, Africa, Much of North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica. More at timeanddate.com.

    Gabriel in corp coloursIf you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel. 

    To the right is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards). Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook. Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. This is the Flower Moon, due to the beautiful blossoms dotting the landscape. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Other tribes knew it as the Corn Planting Moon, Planting Moon and Milk Moon. Some American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this)

    Although the Celts were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Hawthorn Moon following soon after Beltane. Known as Huath (pronounced Hoh-uh), the plant is prickly with pretty blossoms and is associated masculine energy, fire and fertility; tradition dictating that male potency is high at this time of year.  Hawthorn can be used for magic rituals involving masculine power (it has a raw phallic energy about it), making professional connections and business decisions. The faerie realm are said ti like it, with the fae being particularly attracted when Hawthorns grow together with Ash and Oak. See thoughtco.com.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Monday 17th January, Wolf Full Moon @ 23:51 GMT

    Copy of wolf moonMonday 17th January @ 23:51 is Full Moon. The January Full moon is also known as the Wolf Moon. See below for details of our Full Moon guided meditation at 7.30-9.30pm GMT on Monday night.

    The Wolf Moon image was created by Antonia Skelton for Harmony Healing.

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. As mentioned above, they called the January Full Moon the Wolf Moon. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Why Native American tribes (and Medieval Europeans) are said to have referred to this as a Wolf Moon is thought to be because hungry wolves howled more at this time of year since less food was available. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Birch Moon (learnreligions.com). The Celts called this month Beth (pronounced beh). The Birch Moon is linked with rebirth and regeneration, with growing light following the Winter Solstice here is the Northern Hemisphere. After forest fires (sadly there have been way too many of these internationally), Birch is the first tree to regrow. The birch is also associated with healing, protection and creative magic, especially regarding fertility. To keep sacred writings safe, they would be written on Birch bark. A red ribbon tied around the trunk of a Birch tree is said to ward off negative energy and a Birch twig can be hung over a cradle for psychic protection for a new born.

    Lunar Cycle imageBetween Full Moon and the next New Moon (1st February) is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.  Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 -our next interactive training course series will start soon.

    Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is tonight, Monday 17th January at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates. There are multi-buy packages for regular attendees. Book at the Harmony Shop.

  • Monday 20th July, New Moon @ 18.33

    Monday 20th July @ 18.33 UK time (GMT/UT+1) is the New Moon. See below for the New Moon abundance ritual.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.

    There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for the rest of 2020. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

  • Monday 3rd August, Holly Full Moon plus Hindu Festival

    Monday 3rd August @ 16.59 is Full Moon (Holly Moon). Tonight, I'm holding a Virtual Harmony Healing Circle, 7.30-9.30pm UK time, £11 (half price to VFoA/RSE graduates).

    The image left is from Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards, and also in A Harmony of Angels book, both available from the Harmony Shop.

    Click here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    The Druids and Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. The Druids, venerated all nature and to them this is the Holly Moon,an evergreen which reminds us of the immortality of nature. This Full Moon was also known by the Celts as the Tinne,pronounced chihnn-uh';they saw hollyas a potent symbol of masculinity and firmness. Weapons were often constructed from its wood but it was also revered for its protective magic. A sprig of holly can be hung in the home, or used as a charm, for safety and good luck. Holly water was created by soaking leaves overnight in spring water under a full moon, then used for protective blessing. I wonder if it was the origin of 'holy water'?  More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website.

    © Surub | <a href="https://www.stockfreeimages.com/">Stock Free Images</a>Similarly the Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The Full Moon in August is the Sturgeon Moon. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Some Native Americans identified this as the Sturgeon Moon as it was the month when the fish were typically abundant in North America. Although once plentiful, sadly now they are rare enough to be considered endangered. Sturgeons can grow enormous - they can reach over 2 metres long and weigh up to 90 kilos, plus they can have amazingly long lives, the males up to 55 years and the females up to 150 years.  Sturgeons have a strange grey-green colouration, a pointed snout and feature a cat-like pair of tactile whiskers above their mouth (amazing photo by © SurubStock Free Images) and are sometimes referred to as 'living fossils' as they are part of a genus of fish which has existed for over 135 million years! See more at timeanddate.com.

    Other tribes knew this August Full Moon as the Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Barley Moonand Fruit Moon, as it was the month when these various crops were harvested. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    Monday 3rd August is also Raksha Bandhan, the Hindu festival honouring the bond between brothers and sisters.  Celebrated on the day of the Full Moon in August, see Wikipedia for more on this.
