    Sunday 6th January is New Moon @ 01.29 (Saturday night/Sunday morning). Partial solar eclipse, not visible in UK (visible in north Pacific and northeast Asia), see timeanddate.com.

    This partial eclipse is in Capricorn, and according to thepowerpath.com it heralds a two week period in which to 'clean ourselves up'. This includes relationships (to yourself and others) and past emotional hurt; forgive and heal, set clear boundaries.

    This New Moon Abundance ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon.

    Oh and put away the Christmas decorations for a year too as it's Epiphany

    Epiphany is the name for Twelfth Night in the Christian Calendar. The day when traditionally the Christmas Tree and other decorations should be removed until the following year.

    In Chinese astrology there is a 12 year cycle and this is the final day ofThe Year of the Dog which was supposedly a good time to make lifestyle changes (such as moving house, giving up smoking) or for embarking on new business ventures.  2018/19 was The Year of the Earth Dog which is even rarer, and happens only once every six decades.  The earth element made this concluding year one that focussed on the environment, integrity, religion and spirituality. The five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water rotate with each sign every twelve years, so it takes 60 years for the zodiac and element to repeat.

  • Saturday 25th January, Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat

    Moon Scarletts shot square

    Saturday 25th January is Chinese New Year, which is based on the Chinese lunar calendar, so starts this year after the New Moon on Friday 24th January @ 21:44.

    This marks the start of the Year of the Metal Rat, which runs until the evening of Lunar New Years Eve on Thursday 11th February 2021. Image by cienpies purchased from Istock.

    The Rat is the first of the twelve zodiac animals in the Chinese zodiac. According to myth, as detailed in chinesenewyear.com the Jade Emperor said that the order in which they arrived to his party, would decide the order in the zodiac. The Rat coaxed the Ox into giving him a ride. As they approached the finish line, the Rat arrived first by jumping down and landing ahead of Ox.

    As explained in chinahighlights.com, there is also a rotation of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal. water. Each element lasts 12 years as it continues through a full rotation of all zodiac animals, making a 60 year cycle.  Meaning that we last experienced the year of the Metal Rat 60 years ago, between 28th January 1960 and 14th February 1961.

    This means that in the year of your 60th birthday, you will retun to your original birth zodiac sign in terms of animal and element.  As I was born in the year of the Metal Rat in 1960, this will apply to me this year!

    Rats are traditionally seen as a sign of wealth and surplus in Chinese culture and married couples pray to them for children, because of their reproduction rate.

    In China, generally the New Year celebration is a major event with seven days' absence from work, from New Year’s Eve (Friday 24th January) until the 6th day of the first lunar month (Thursday 30th January). Sadly this year, the outbreak of Coronavirus has limited the festivities in some large cities.

    Some Chinese families take their Zodiac very seriously and use the horoscopes to bring balance and wellbeing into their lives. There is advice on lucky and unlucky colours to wear, numbers to seek out and ones to avoid, plus recommended directions of auspiciousness, wealth and love. There are also guidelines on which zodiac animals are most and least compatible as life partners.

  • Tuesday 2nd July, New Moon at 20.16 & Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer

    Moon Scarletts shot square

    Tuesday 2nd July is the Dark Moon @ 20:16.  

    It's also a total solar eclipse in some parts of the world.  Solar eclipses occur at the time of the New Moon, when the Moon moves between the Sun and the Earth, obscuring the view of the Sun from the Earth. This creates a metaphor that a Solar Eclipse obscures our vision forward, allowing an ideal opportunity to reflect on the present and relate it to our past in a beneficial way.  It's vital that this reflection is constructive and not the re-living of old pain, instead re-evaluate how much you have moved forward in the interim; looking for positive re-assessment and tangible progress on your life path.

    This total solar eclipse will be visible from small parts of Argentina and Chile just before sunset. Some regions in the Pacific and in South America, including locations in Paraguay and Uruguay, Brazil and Ecuador will see a partial solar eclipse, if the weather permits. See timeanddate.com for more on how to follow the eclipse progress. Whether this total eclipse is visible to us or not, it will affect us energetically, see radiantastrology.com for details on the astrology of this particular eclipse. 

    Any New Moon is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board. With this being a total solar eclipse as well, it's particularly powerful for creating a Vision Board for the rest of 2019 to create new goals and release old ones. 

    This New Moon Abundance ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon, click this link (or via the image) to see the YouTube Video Instructions.

  • Wednesday 13th January, New Moon @ 05:01 & Start of New Year New Vision Mentoring Programme

    Wednesday 13th January is the New Moon @ 05:01. Moon image by Harmony Healing from Canva. Joanna's New Year New Visiona moon connection mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021, starts today.  It's not too late to join. Curious to know more? See our discussion video or see the details below. Cost is £111.

    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 2021.  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.

    thumbnail new moon new vision 5Aligning 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 and New Year New Vision is a lunar connection programme starting tonight, on the first New Moon of 2021.

    New Year New Vision is a mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 13th January and 11th February plus Full Moon on Thursday 28th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Ox (11th February). We create a 2021 Vision Board throughout the month. Cost is £111, more at the Harmony Website.

    Our next virtual healing circle on Thursday 28th January is 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.

    Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.
