What is a light bearer?

A dear friend of mine ask me “What is a light bearer?” and I was fascinated by this question. so I was able to channel Spirit. Here is humble answer:

“A light bearer is someone who brings light to the world. This is someone who strives to help people realise their own inner potential, their own inner purpose, their own inner strength. A light bearer brings light and love through their words, thoughts and actions.”

So be a light bearer…..one who strives for peace, love and joy throughout the world.

Shalom, Salaam, Peace.

Card for today: HEALTH

Card of the Day: HEALTH

“My prayers for healing miracles have been heard and answered.”

Your beloved prayers in regards to health and healing have been heard and have been answered in Heaven. Now is the time to use your intuitive guidance to help you make the best decisions possible for your health and well-being.

Perhaps it’s time to consider all aspects of your health, finding the right medical practitioner for your health, being more proactive about your health, learning more about eastern and western medicines, or even consider studying and learning about health and medicine both on a medical or spiritual level to open your own practice. These are just some examples of what this card means. For every one, the meanings will be different.

Beloved Mother Mary, who is a mother to us all, is one of nurturing love – just like all mothers around the world. She sends you this love so that you can keep going in trying your best. As human beings, we can only try our best. Mother Mary also helps you to see that you are worthy of love – because love is healing, and in turn it is a blessing for healing.

Be open to receive the health of love.

Tarot for today!!

Tarot for today!

The tarot card for today the Hanged Man – Reversed. Perhaps for the start of the week, there are some delays or indecisions about moving forward. You may be feeling unsure or uncertain about what direction in your life that needs review and reflection. This can be on any number of topics or situations that may be occurring in your life such as relationships, friendships, career, health, past memories, or travel.

The Hanged Man Reversed card also speaks about reflection of self when you do have feelings of restriction or indecision making. Like the Hanged Man, you need to untangle yourself from any form of negativity or selfishness (this is either selfishness on your part or selfishness on other people’s part).

So how can you untangle yourself? While for each person the answer will be different, is to be accountable your own thoughts, words and actions your own. No, unfortunately you can’t change people, but you can change yourself, if you wish to.

Once you have decided you want to change, you wish to go in a direction that you desire – the Hanged Man – Reversed calls for you to let go of something in order for something new to be born into your world. Yes, I can see that each one of us may want to hang on (like the Hanged Man) for dear life, but this isn’t healthy. Reflection can be through meditation, journaling, planning, Angel box, or just taking some time and patience to really consider all your options and opportunities in front of you.

It’s time to release, renew, and refresh! So what are you waiting for?

With love and Tarot blessings,

The Hanged Man Reversed

Inspiration Card for today!

“Thou shalt love the Lord your God, with all your heart, all your soul, and your all your strength” (Mark 12:30, KJV)

Today’s inspirational card is a reminder to know that we are loved no matter what spiritual or religious path that we may choose. Due to recent world events, we need to know that we are loved and worthy of such love in our lives. You are love, and are loved very dearly by God, or the Divine (or whatever you feel more comfortable calling our higher intervention).

Rather than having worry, having fear, having anger in our hearts, in our souls or in our minds – give this over to whatever spiritual deity you feel is aligned to your values. See the peace and love within each other, because this is truly what we have right now.

Much love and blessings to all of you. 😀

Full Moon in Aries – The fight between Free Will and Fate!

Full Moon in Aries – The fight between Free Will and Fate!

The October Full Moon at 12° Aries will occur on Thursday, October 5th 2017. This Moon as a flavour of Mercury, which means that over the coming two weeks there is sense of communicating your feelings to others.

The Venus Mars alignment occurs only hours after this full moon which adds more passion and intensity into the mix! While with any full moon brings much opportunity, it also bring danger. There is caution to the wind within this full moon – as with any balancing act of fate and freewill determines how naughty or nice the Full Moon will feel.

Keep in mind that the Full Moon affects everyone differently. But your frame of mind – if you wish to pursue particular goals at this point in time aspect from the Moon and the planets will personally influence your own chart in Astrology will affect outcomes of your life

Full Moon Meaning For October 2017

This Full Moon is Sun opposite Moon which highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life. Examples of this could include, but not limited to: ego vs emotions, work vs home, or what you need vs what you want. There may be inner tension or external pressure which can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts will definitely reach their chock-full peak at the full moon. To overcome any challenges during this intense time, look towards your own emotional strength and intuition. Being more subconsciously aware allows for a balanced outlook at your personal relationships such as romantic relationships, friendships, other family relations, co-workers, etc. You will clearly see any relationships dynamics or negative feelings that is causing you disharmony.
This Full Moon has influenced the New Moon which did occur on September 20th, 2017. Any new moon goals or ideas can therefore be fine-tuned, revaluated or completed. It now harvesting season. A time to adjust to what you have set in motion towards these goals. While this previous moon phrase of the New Moon did open up painful wounds you have suffered in the past, and I sense for many of you this was a very difficult and painful process for you; it was necessary in order for the healing to beginning…..to become renewed once more. This healing process is different for everyone and it can be an ongoing process for many people. Healing is also involve adapting to change, little changes and unexpected changes, making adjustments to whatever may come your way.  As the popular British-American rock band of the 1970s hit was “Go Your Own Way”. (1977) I am reminded of this song, as it is phrase to remember that we are all on our own journey in life and in spirituality.

Full Moon in 12° Aries

The October 5 full moon at 12°42′ Aries is most affected by Mercury. Mercury is a masculine energy, and means “messenger of the Gods” in astrology. This means that communicating your feelings will be a major theme over the next two weeks. This Full Moon is also linked directly to Neptune which means your thoughts may be influence by self-delusion, paranoia, lies and deception.

There are also some fixed stars as well that will have some influence over the full moon in October 2017; as well as two very significant planetary aspects. One of these is Venus conjuncts Mars, which will happen two hours before the full moon. This means that love relationships will be a major topic of discussion but also war and peace.

Aspects of the Full Moon in October 2017

Moon opposite Mercury involves communicating your feelings for this full moon. You may also experience difficult with scrambled thinking where it may be hard to make sense of everyday problems. This can result in arguments caused by emotional bias or just simple lack of understanding. Other influences in your thinking may include addiction, racism or prejudice. Sensitive discussion topics and negotiations will be difficult over the next couple of weeks. Best piece of advice is to choose your words carefully over the coming weeks if you are planning to speak on a sensitive topic.

Mercury and the Sun quincunx Neptune can twist your perception of reality. While it may bring glamour or intrigue into your life, there is a need of balance between the two. However, this balancing act can also manifest as a saviour and a victim, or saint and sinner. There is potential to over idealize someone over to be sadly disappointed. A certain level of scepticism is healthy, but theirs is also a potential of paranoia and hypochondria.

Now is the time to avoid negative people, situations or any form of negative influence. Only trust people whom you really know so you don’t fall victim to lies, deception, gossip, fraud. It is important to keep your own personal awareness positive because your own self-worth is important. You are worthy of friendship and relationships that are balanced of both giving and receiving. Keep in mind that you can always to set boundaries with other people if necessary. With all quinxcunx aspects, it’s always a balancing act! Too much pride would lead to a fall, just too much self-pity will lead to failure.

Venus conjunct Mars increases one’s desires for intimate relations. Driven by an intense need for sexual satisfaction, you can become more direct in your approach in searching for a mating partner. Increased charisma and popularity making socialising more enjoyable, and exciting. This time is ideal for both romance and making new friends. There is also much satisfaction in creative outlets for those who may not be seeking a romantic partner at this point in time. Being artistic, through painting, drawing, dancing, or sculpture. This is to incorporate both the physical and the emotional aspects of expression.

There are two other aspects to the Venus Mars conjunction. A square to Saturn can inhibit your loved life while a trine to Pluto can enhance it. Again in full moon October 2017 there two distinct possibilities. You can choose to overcome the obstacles and take advantage of the benefits.

For those in relationships Venus square Saturn and Mars square Saturn can add stress to intimate or love relationships due to negative feelings, distance, or other relationship problems. While each party may have desires and needs that they wish to grow stronger, but it may be harder to express each party’s passions and succeed. Now, it’s important to put in the extra effort to avoid the risk of relationship drama. Being motivated in any relationship is challenging, and while you may prefer to be doing other activates, it is vital to keep working towards relationship harmony between you and your partner. This is no time to ignore your responsibilities, especially for loved ones. The best approach now is a defensive one. Be patient and plodding hard work get you these results of relationship success.

Summary of This Full Moon in October

The Jupiter opposite Uranus aspects sums up the Full Moon of October very well. If you take advantage of the opportunities in front of you and avoid potential pitfalls, you can greatly enjoy the next two weeks and have your passionate desires fulfilled. You may have neurotic infatuations an obsessions; but don’t let this get too out of control. Avoid the urges to control, gossip, deceive, manipulative, be mean, greedy, lazy or selfish in any situation or idea. You can use your imagination to dream your ideal romantic partner. Work with the Full Moon to stay motivated with the intense passion to work hard, and remain focused on your goals.

Pathways and Perception

Pathways and Perception

In Australia, young people in Years 11 (11th grade) and 12 (12th grade) will be completed their HSC (Higher School Certificate) or if they live in the state of Victoria their VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education).

The 12th grade is the final year of schooling. For many year 12s this is an exciting time for you – you are finishing your schooling! Yay! No more school! Woo-hoo! But it is also a time of mixed emotions. You may be nervous, uncertain, happy, and sad, frighten and these are perfectly normal emotions.

It’s been a few years (12 actually!) since I finished my secondary school years, and I just felt guided to share some slight wisdom with you.

EXAMS WILL NOT DEFINE YOU:

No exams will define you – you can only do your best. Actually, I take my hat off to all Year 12s for actually attempting to sit your exams. I was unable to sit mine for personal reasons. I feel there so much stress, anxiety involved – and you don’t need this pressure on yourself. You can only do your best – if you can sit and only do part of the exam – that’s fine. You have accomplishment so much in your final year of school. Exams is just an exam….you have already work so hard already throughout the year!!

BALANCE YOUR STUDIES & SELF CARE:

I’m sure you have heard the British proverb: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” It is important to take some time out of your studies. You can’t be always focusing on your studies all the time. You need to allow your mind to process the information that you have stored in your brain of yours. While any form of mental stimulation is fantastic, as a student you need to balance that with getting enough sleep, a healthy diet, physical exercise and relaxation. Yes, Year 12 is quite a juggling act a times, but it is very important to make sure to put your needs first during exam and study season!

REACHING OUT FOR HELP & SUPPORT:

Don’t be afraid to speak up and out to other people for help if you feel overwhelmed, stressed, tired, frustrated, or just need to cry when you feel like it. There are always your teachers, counsellors, your parents, friends, your principal and other support services available for young people.

PATHWAYS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU:

You have big dreams and goals – and this is wonderful! Please don’t give up on your dreams! I’m 30 years old and I’m still working out what I would like to do in my life. It does get better after school. Life is simply an adventure – and there are pathways towards your goals. Just because perhaps you may or may not have the particular TER score or the particular university or TAFE course that you were after, doesn’t mean that it won’t happen in the future.

You are still so young, and each of you – have a bright and joyous future ahead of you. Even when one pathway may seem so far away, or the steps to get there seem so endless or there are many twists and turns, this is a part of life. Life is about learning through experience: It is about making mistakes but learning from these mistakes creates a greater wisdom of yourself and your own dreams.

So my point to you, lovely and beautiful young people – is that pathways are available to you. Anything is possible with patience, hard work, effort and the believe in yourself. If you have the belief in yourself – you can do anything. It is your time to fly!!!

Please don’t let anything stop you from achieving your goals. You still have so much to offer this world. There are no limits whatsoever to age, education, finances, or even learning ability.

You are the driving force to make your dreams into a reality – and you have an entire lifetime to do this.

Much love and light to all of you and Good luck with your exams!

New Moon 20th September 2017 in VIRGO – Heartbreak Hotel

New Moon 20th September 2017 in VIRGO – Heartbreak Hotel

The new moon on Wednesday September 20th, 2017 is at 27° Virgo. Continuing from the previous theme and energies of the Solar Eclipse which was on August 21st, 2017 which was making bold, refreshing and long term plans towards your set goals. Now, this energies and theme feel as though you are making and moving in adjustments in these plans.

While during this period, and leading up to New Moon, you may be feeling a range of emotions, of tiredness, frustration, sadness, anger, bitterness, resentfulness, as well as any other emotion in-between as this New Moon may cause everyone to review, reflect, look or even rediscover any painful wounds of the past and the present. This is indeed necessary in order for the healing process to occur. No matter how painful, how hurtful, how horrible things may have been….this is part of releasing them in order for something BETTER FOR YOU to be revealed to you in your life.

Once again, with everyone New Moon, it represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28-day cycle. With these new cycles gives an invigorating new burst of energy and initiative into the Universe. This an excellent time to begin new projects, a time for fresh starts and turning a new leaf.

Aspects of the New Moon

the New Moon on September 20th, 2017 is one about going with changing circumstances. There may be a few alterations to your original goal, making them more attainable, realistic and reachable. Again you might be reflecting on your most painful wound and for everyone this will be different: it could be related to love & relationships, your career & studies, your family, your friends, your health & wellness, dealing with grief or loss, or even dealing with an awakening towards your own personal spiritual journey. (This is just some general topics)

Nevertheless, for many of you, you may want a complete change….a fresh start. This is due to the Jupiter opposite Uranus who is heavy influenced by sudden events which bring tension which in turn shifts into major changes into your personal circumstances. However, the more restricted you are feeling towards this change, to this shift, to this event, the more upsetting this change might be.

While a fresh start is always welcome, it can bring a big adjustment to those around you – your friends, family, co-workers, especially if you are seeking an extreme change. Please consider carefully any financial ramifications for any change. Speak to your loved ones – especially your partner if you are seeking a big change. Think clearly, before acting, on any personal plans.

New beginnings are also strongly linked towards personal growth, travel, education and new relationships, while maintaining any core responsibilities towards yourself and towards your loved ones. To avoid chaos, boredom and disruption, find new and creative ways to expand your mind – there may be a new hobby or skill that you are seeking that may allow you to learn something about yourself that you didn’t realise!

While during this time of the New Moon in Virgo, you may experience, nervousness, anxiety, stress, tension and thus you may find it hard to relax. Your intuition may learn or sense change or drama – especially from someone who wants you to change or pressuring you to behave a particular way. An unexpected event, accident or change may soon force you to review your own behaviour, values, beliefs, plans or routine.

Be flexible and adaptable with any changes during this time of September of the New Moon. Don’t be arrogant or defensive and try and resist change – because sadly, you could miss any opportunities that the Universe presents itself to you. There are golden opportunities out there for you….it is just a matter of seeking for them…..there you shall find them!

Since during this month of new change and transitions, I have been guided to share the prayer of beloved Archangel Azrael. Azrael who helps those who are grieving, the bereaved, helping those souls crossing over to Heaven, and all people who need help transiting from one cycle of their life to move forward with the healing that they need.

With love and New Moon blessings,

Libby xoxo
