HEADS UP! … Astrologers are saying this a powerful time, I reckon this kind of information is always nice to know if you are feeling just a tad crazy! We are in a post full moon period in Scorpio energy. Scorpio offers us the chance to let go of what we really don’t need any more. It encourages us to dive deep into the hidden recesses of our psyche.
With Mercury just gone retrograde (and will be till November 26th) watch out for communication issues and challenges with communication equipment, computers and the like – make sure you have backed up everything and leave signing of contracts and buying of new technology till the end of November.
Personally, Mercury Retrograde is all about going back over old ‘stuff’ so with the Scorpion energy you may well find yourself able to get some clarity on issues that have been evading you for a while. The next few weeks are a great time to harvest inner wisdom and connect deeply with your true voice. It is also a great healing time, perhaps in your dreams.
You can use the energy of this with the next New Moon – for wishing – on November 14th. With Mercury Retrograde you have the opportunity to transform out dated ways of acting and being and combined with the Solar Eclipse you will have an extra bit of support to accept the changes and transformations needed to grow.
The Essence of the Month often very clearly reflects the opportunity for growth the planets are offering – this month the essence that emerged was:
‘ I see simply……
I see my world simply with innocence and wonder
Dissolving the way for the Universal Light and endless Love
That abounds within.’
Lovely energy to work with! Members of the Essence of the Month Club and those who receive personalized essences via mail get an email about each new Essence of the Month. Please let me know if you want to be added to that email list (or if you want a bottle, I always make a few spares) you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Happy New Moon wishing and Scorpio dreaming!

I am alive!
I trust my energy and choose to follow my heart. I see through the mirage and joyful come to my senses embracing ‘what is’ and so become fully alive in the moment.
I laughed out loud when I made this! Made with the energy of the New Moon and coinciding with the start of the Year of the Dragon….
and if follows on so nicely from last months….
I am free to be me! I forgive my family, friends and loved ones of any perceived wrongs and have all the courage and strength I need to maintain my clarity and express all that I am.

We have just started a Solar Eclipse season and Mercury is retrograde till the 13th…. time for reflection even some confusions (good old Mercury) and re- committing to your ‘right’ track. Things may fall away over the next few weeks, Solar Eclipses tend to make that happen, but it will be for the best and to help you find that right track once again. This essence feels as if it will support that process nicely. (You can see more about the club here! )
I am open and yet can protect myself completely when I need.
Trusting this I let go of trying to understand
and just accept and embrace life’s experiences.
Have a great month!

September 2nd, 2011
I just read this post from Jan Spiller and thought I would pass it on. Jan is writing from the perspective of the East Coast USA, ie her 3rd is our 2nd so things may already be feeling a little wobbly, if so let it settle before you make any major decisions.
I found it interesting that the essence of the month for September is ‘Go!’ . ‘Open up to limitless opportunities, let go, forgive and move on!’ I think that epitomizes the balance that is needed this month for shifting forward from a balanced and whole place within.
….September 1st, 2011…. A desire to rebel against those structures that are limited and that have outworn their usefulness, paired with opportunities to get more in touch with your true desires, will be this month’s predominant theme.
A Moon Wobble occurs on the 12th, the effects of which will be felt from the 3rd to the 16th. Moon Wobbles always stir up emotional energy, and people become more reactive under their influence. The primary danger associated with a Moon Wobble is a tendency to make too-quick decisions based on emotional impulse.
Because this month’s Moon Wobble occurs in the sign of Virgo, another’s criticism may be what triggers an unexpected urge on your part to make a sudden change. As this is not a good time to make decisions based on emotional reactions, you’ll have to try to rely on your intuition to tell you what is wrong and what is right without getting emotional. If you feel that something needs immediate change, observe it objectively for a while first; then, make changes, if necessary, calmly and unemotionally. Better yet, wait until the Moon Wobble is over before doing anything radically new….. Read more here http://astrologywithjanspiller.com/
Lovely essence for August and the Mercury retrograde going on from the 2nd to the 26th… aside from backing up your computers (!!) it is time to go within and make sure you are ‘on track’.
Listen and Know….
Listen and make clear decisions
Trusting the deep voice from within.
Acknowledge that we choose our own course
And ground into the power and joy of the present moment.
Have a fun month!

New Moon Solar Eclipse happens June 2nd…. New Moons are all about new beginnings (so make your wish list) and eclipses are times to let go of the old. Astrologer Jan Spiller says it is the time for sharing our wisdom and, as we share what we know we open to so much more.
The essence of the month fits in beautifully :
Expand and Awaken
Stay present and connected as you open to others points of view.
Be mindful of the Self – Yours and Others.
We are all one.
May 5th, 2011
This was the lovely essence that emerged this month :
I respond joyfully to the abundance of new beginnings being presented to me.
I am safe within my own stone circle of protection from my past.
members will have received it by now… a little late thanks to all the public holidays. I make a few spares each month which you can pick up in the clinic for $18 or have it mailed to your door for $23. Or there is still some space in the Essence of the Month Club and engage in the communial energy of growth the planet is throwing at us!
February 23rd, 2011
Recreate Community:Recreate community within and without
Build it with Exuberance and Joy.
Be present, let go of old patterns of dysfunction
And choose to live in respect and harmony with self and others.
With all that is going on in the world, the conflict and the disasters, within the individual and throughout the planet this essence reminds me of the importance of the inner work of loving growth. It also reminds me that as we evolve and let go of our individual limiting beliefs and patterns we open the opportunity for change to all those around us.
My thoughts and prayers to those in Canterbury and the Middle East.

Another month slides by…. the essence (and theme!) for the month just emerged!
Be fully present and connected to the deep wisdom of within.
Trust all that is.
Fall into the place of peace, calm and inner conviction
And embrace the courage of expression of the Self.
I am really looking forward to this. I am finding such interesting synchronicity with the essences… I found last month’s essence Balanced Divine Strength incredibly supportive during the floods. I remember taking it one day (maybe the Wednesday?) and absolutely gathering the strength to trust the process of the day…..
Anyway, those in the Club will get it early next week! If you want to know more about the club click here
