Happy New Year!
Gosh, that was quite a super moon we just came through… after several nights of full moon insomnia I’m feeling a bit more ‘normal’ and Moon Times is open again after our little break over Xmas and New Year.
Those of you who purchased Moon Charts for 2018 will have noticed we will experience 2 “Blue Moons” this year (2 full moons in one month) – we have 2 in January and 2 in March! The 2 January moons are both “super moons” (moons that are closer to the earth) these two super-moons that are greeting 2018 follow another super-moon, which appeared on December 3, 2017. While super-moons are themselves not rare, three in a row certainly are! If you’re interested to know more about whats going on in the heavens, I love the astrological forecasts of the Sky Priestess and Kaypacha.
On a personal note…Christmas was lovely and quiet spent with family…I did the mad thing of starting a 90 day detox a couple of weeks before- but it’s kept us eating well over the holidays and even my eldest son enjoyed a few days of green eating! My detox is from the Medical Mediums new book…and whilst I don’t have any thyroid issues, what interests me is his information on viruses and prevention of illness through food. I definitely recommend it if you suffer from fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs….this book will help you!

I’ve been busy writing a few blogs over the Christmas break, so take your pick from these- book recommendations from a selection of ones I have read through 2017, why “Catch Up” ceremonies are important and Menopause…are you in denial! Get yourself a cuppa and have a read!
I also have a gratitude practice each new year, which I blog about here.
