A Golden Cup floats through the sky. It is being filled with liquid which is being spewed from the mouth of a cloud-shaped cherub above in the sky.

The chalice never overflows but contains the drink of all knowledge.

It is decorated with 2 dark red stones like drops of blood.



KEYWORDS:  Receiving   Completing the Circuit.  Flow   The Source



This is the Chalice of the Infinite; all that Has Been, Is, and Will Be. The Chalice holds the blood of Life, the blood of the ancient wise ones which has been passed on and still runs through your veins. They are calling to you now. In this, you carry their genetic imprint.

This is the cup which is filled with pure love, freely given and universally offered. From it flows Love given without ego.

Take the opportunity to drink in the Universal Life Energy. Receive the gift from the source. Be part of the continuous cycle of giving and receiving, it cannot be depleted. 

Some become so used to offering love, afraid to ask for any in return and in denying themselves interrupt this flow. Now is the time to connect and receive. Fill your own cup to overflowing so that it can complete the cycle. In completing the circuit within yourself you complete the circuit within the Universe.

If you feel separated from the Source allow yourself space to stand in its flow, until you become as One. Remember, unconditional love is not something to be given or taken, it is an endless cycle. Then you will receive Divine nurturance.

An abundant bush which contains many different berries.

They are ripe and contain the juices of many differing aspects of life.

They must be picked and taken, even though there is a risk attached as we do not know what aspect each contains.  If they are not picked now then they will be wasted.

You are not insignificant. Do not be afraid. What you previously perceived as impossible can now come to fruition and you will be amazed at how easy it now is to fulfill your purpose. Remember each fruit carries a seed of potential. Spread those seeds for others to harvest.

There is an obstacle course full of terrible dangers. We must pass through it as part of our journey. 

To the outer eye it is impossible and holds many traps.

With great faith we cross it with no fear and are untouched by its dangers.

It is in a forest and night is approaching.


KEYWORDS:     Faith   Acceptance    Revelation    Spiritual evolution



Mankind is now facing a part of his Journey beset with dangers. Yet with wisdom he will make the right choice and choose the correct path. But he must do this without fear, no matter what dangers are faced, for this is the pathway that will bring him to his destiny.

You are now also facing your own Journey. There are many obstacles which present themselves such as regret, fear, holding on to the past, feelings of unworthiness. As you approach these obstacles allow them to be released and step beyond your self imposed boundaries.

Perhaps you are being called upon to make a choice about which direction to take. By your willingness to walk through the dark forest you encounter insights which can only revealed in the shadows. There you will find hidden depths.

Do you feel lost? Never give up; there are forces around to guide you. Listen to and sense them. Know that however things appear, you are being guided.

Are you afraid of the dark? Remember, it is there that we find our most cherished dreams.

ANNUAL SOLAR DAYS: 29th January - 2nd February &10th- 13th November

Equivalent to 17º 17' Scorpio - 20º 56' Scorpio

& 9º 04' Aquarius -12º 43' Aquarius                                   




A volcano is spewing red-hot larva and fire.

The opening becomes the bringer of Life, giving birth as it pushes and pushes to bring out a being.

This being is a hideous fool carrying a club.  He is thrust out and then from the top of his head, splitting him in two, there emerges another man, more refined.

From his crown there is then born a woman, queenlike.

This process goes on and on, bringing forth plants and animals - all life.

Until finally from a rock there emerges a spark, inextinguishable and glowing.

Life starts to bloom around the volcano.

It is full of vitality.



KEYWORDS:  Illumination   Rebirth   Initiation 



You are experiencing a transformational shift. All around you seems to reveal the darkness of mankind. This is the moment before birth, the deepest pain before illumination. Do not resist. Remember that you have chosen this path of rebirth. All is not today as it soon shall be. This is initiation by fire. The spark, which ignites the fire of your essence. Be changed forever by the fires of transformation, and enter the spiral of evolution.

As you move into this new vibration you may feel out of balance with all around you. Breathe deeply centering on the heart. As you let go and strip away all that is no longer needed for this stage of your journey you will find each step leaves you with a clearer more powerful ‘self’. As you are stripped of all that defines you, all that defines the world is also stripped away. As the facade crumbles true illumination bursts through.

A serpent entwined around a very long tall tree trunk reaching upward towards the sky.

At the top the leaves quiver.  They hold secrets.  To arrive there we must enter through the snake's body.

It is an ecstatic journey.  An awakening of Kundalini energy.

Great joy.


KEYWORDS:  Awakening   Revelation    Arrival   Joy



This is the great awakening. Something has been stirring around you and within you. At this time the Ascended Masters are awaiting your request for guidance and support. Yet know that you already carry within you the wisdom of the Universe. What seems to be a test is in reality a priceless gift.

Be aware of the heightened vibration in your life. This is the call to remember your life’s purpose, which is seeded in your memory as a long felt dream calling to you. Work with light, colour, sound, energy. Open to your full mystical power. Let its energy surge through you.

Repeat I AM THAT I AM.

A bright crescent moon with a dark moon beneath on the horizon of the ocean, which ripples in a triangular formation.

A great sense of joy (almost ecstasy) at being able to step into the water and swim into the unknown.

Overcoming fear.

To reach the horizon you must first leave the safety of the shore.


KEYWORDS:  Nearing ecstasy    Fearlessness    Trust    Seizing the moment



Now is a special moment waiting to be seized. Here is the knowledge that we are being shown our path, it is just a step away. The way is alight. Bathe in the waters of remembrance and you too shall become like this beacon, giving light for others to follow. A vibrational wave of enlightenment energy is moving through the entire planet. Dare you become part of it? You are hearing a long awaited call.

Life is calling you right now to step into its divine flow and receive its blessing. As the ripples of this ocean grow and affect every aspect of your life they also affect the planetary waves. Ride the crest of this wave.

Allow yourself to open to divine connection and you will find that what you have been looking for has always been there. Then the true radiance of self will burst through.

 Equivalent to 29º16' Scorpio - 4º 03' Sagittarius

& 25º 47' Capricorn - 0º 44' Aquarius                                       




A gateway.

We choose to enter in - once we enter, there is no return.

Inside we find a gaping chasm.  We must choose to stay or find a way to cross.

There is no way but we choose to try.

Once we make this choice, a chariot appears.

It is driven by a ghostly driver.

We enter the chariot, which flies across.  We have entered where few are brave enough to try.  A golden city lies ahead and we are welcomed as a hero.

This is where we belong.


Keywords:  Courage  Trust   Choice   Turning point



It is time to make the quantum leap beyond the confines of the apparent world.

The Golden Radiance is already part of our being; it only waits to be discovered. What are you afraid of?  What is holding you back?

Can you dare to allow yourself to find what you seek? To find this we must gamble our old self and be willing to lose. You will find that what is lost is that which is no longer required.

As you expand your own boundaries you are also closing the boundaries of your limitations. By the removal of your own limits you are able to transform the collective reality of the entire planet.

Ask yourself ‘What do I need to release at this moment’

There is a waterfall, fast and heavy, falling straight down in a vertical line, crashing down below.

It is at the edge of the world, which is covered with the seas.

These waters are pulled to the edge where they pour over, taking all signs of life with them until all is swept away over the void.

What is left is a blackness as the moon releases its pull and becomes calm and life is ready to be renewed.


Keywords:  Cleansing    Irresistible forces    Birth    Primal Source



You are being connected to the Source. Take the opportunity to feel the primordial power of Nature as it moves through your being. You are a drop in the ocean that must join others to become an overwhelming force. You are alone but not alone. This is both the end and the beginning. Surrender to this force and you will receive its nourishment. You are now ready to be born after swimming in the waters of the Mother’s great womb. It is time to find our part in the Unity of the Whole. These forces take us into other dimensions of being as we become One with the Source. It is time to forgive yourself and to forgive others. Align yourself and you will be drawn into the harmony.
