New Moon, New Year, New Beginnings


Happy New Year! With the Capricorn New Moon on January 9th, this is the perfect time to set new intentions for your year ahead. 

Have you been rushing around, trying to accomplish too many things and finding you are spinning your wheels?

Have you felt lethargic and unable to focus on anything?

As Capricorn rules time, this New Moon gives you a great opportunity to reassess how you use your time and energy.  

With Mercury retrograde during most of January, don’t be surprised if people you haven’t been in touch with for a long time reappear.

I had been estranged from a couple of very dear family members just before I went to New Zealand almost a decade ago. There was no real fall-out, but a general distancing of the relationship which once was so very close.

Imagine my great joy and surprise when I received an email from my dear Auntie who is 93 years old and still living together with her husband who is 95 years old, saying she had just seen one of my YouTube videos and she loves my blonde hair and is sending me her love.


I called her straight away. We had the most loving, caring conversation and picked up easily from where we left off. When I am next in Manchester, I will go and visit them. I wanted to apologise to her for our rift, but she reminded me of Love Story telling me that love was never having to say you are sorry.

Is there anyone precious from your past that you’d like to see again? This is the time to set clear intentions.  


This Mercury retrograde is aspecting Pluto wanting you to dive more deeply into yourself. Ask yourself those difficult questions: Why am I here? How can I give my life more meaning? Am I doing what I love and if not, why not?

Your astrology chart shows the talents you are born with and I am frequently astonished how many clients I see who have magnificent gifts in their charts are not finding ways to pursue their heart’s desire.

What wonderful goodies lie hidden inside of you that you have yet to discover??

It’s a new opportunity to see the beauty of the depths of you. Maybe you have experienced great pain and trauma, but chances are you have learned from that and become stronger, wiser, more loving as a result.

When Mercury is retrograde, words beginning with RE are most significant: REmember you are a beautiful being and with Mercury retrograde at the time of this New Moon in Capricorn, REconsider the way you think about yourself, the way you see your life. Do you keep telling yourself you missed important opportunities? Or are you telling yourself how well you’ve been doing. How hard you’ve been working and endeavouring to create a life that is filled with peace, joy and love.

Saturn, ruler of Capricorn often brings painful lessons. Our pains make us who we are today. They cannot be taken away, but rather absorbed and shine out showing others that the human spirit is strong and can transform and transmute the most painful experiences into love and light.

I hope to meet you in person during t
