21st January 2023
Hi everyone! welcome to some moon magic on this new supermoon on the 21st of January 2023. Blessings, healing, abundance, and much love.
The first new moon of the year holds great spiritual significance as the new moon symbolizes new beginnings and offers us a chance to start afresh. It does not have to be a major change, you can start small. Remember the strength of a mustard seed. Now just focus on that for a moment.
As the new moon rises the earth will be enveloped in darkness and it is not just physical it is also an opportunity for inner reflection and growth. The new moon symbolizes new beginnings as I said earlier, a fresh start, and a chance to let go of the past and embrace the future with open arms.
So what makes the January new moon to be particularly special? Not only is it the first new moon of the year it holds powerful spiritual energy that can affect us on many levels.
So let's talk about our emotional levels as the energy of a moon brings a sense of optimism and positivity into our lives, even in our darkest hour or in the fear and uncertainty. It is a perfect time to set about and practice positive affirmations and set new intentions. I know in the last piece I set intentions to write a letter to myself and made a suggestion to you all and it entirely up to each person what they would like to do. You can either read it or burn it. I burnt mine and just let it go, surrendering it to the spirit angel's higher power. Whichever works for you... and have to say handing things over can be quite a challenge, but I did and it all worked out in the end but not the way I planned it, as I smile here to myself, writing this, never the less it worked out.
I've noticed the voice deep within as I set intentions. You know that voice. I like to call it the darkness, ego, or a voice you heard all your lives that is not yours but the voice of others. You know what I mean without getting too much into it, but it is about learning to know the difference as we set about change in our lives and setting out new and positive intentions. The new moon is a perfect time to build up our confidence and self-esteem, as our heart and mind are not only setting new and positive ideas for our future but a great opportunity to let go of all the old that no longer serves you and writing this down and burning it can be so powerful.
The more you do this the lighter and brighter you become and we need to trust in our ability to make sound judgments. It helps to shut out the negative voices and trust in our own intuition. I guess it is about finding the balance.
Our thoughts are also affected by the new moon's energy. We may find ourselves more focused and very much aware of our surroundings. It helps us to become more aligned with our inner being as we set goals and new beginnings. We switch our mindset to a more positive energy. A perfect time to set intentions and taking actions towards achieving them.
In some of my research on this new moon and my own experience in the last few weeks have shown me hope. To trust, let go and surrender.
Write a letter or a list of positive words, write as many as you want and may I say write negative words also, so you can burn them and let them go. Again it is about releasing as much of the old that no longer serves us, to make room for the new.
Go to a place in nature, consider forgiveness, and how very short life is. Don't take things for granted, and most of all be gentle with yourselves, being aware of that inner voice and not giving it too much attention. I suppose without it we would not learn about the other side of the coin - the positive. Just like electric energy, it has both a positive and a negative. If there are more electrons than protons of matter, it will have a negative charge, if there are fewer will be a positive charge, and if they are equal numbers it will be neutral again. It is finding the balance in times of setting goals and intentions.
We are all connected and yes too, the planets, the new moon can have a strong effect on us all, especially at this time, the new year and the first new moon of 2023.
I've also noticed a lot of female energy around at the moment. Mary Magdalene came up in many conversations over the course of the last few months, Our Lady and St Teresa of Avila, and this year for the first time in Ireland we have St. Bridget's Day coming on the 6th of February.
(From 2023 in Ireland, there will be a new annual public holiday in early February to mark St Brigid's Day. The public holiday will be the first Monday in February, except where St Brigid's day (1 February) happens to fall on a Friday, in which case that Friday 1 February will be a public holiday.)
Yes, we are embarking on very interesting events inner and outer and have also seen so many men tuning into the female energies within themselves and woman tuning into the male side of themselves. I guess it is like the electric energy finding that neutral space within each and every one of us and excepting both sides of ourselves.
So what can we do for ourselves tonight or over the next few days on this new moon to start afresh? Here are a few suggestions that might help:
- Think of yourself like a plug with a positive and a negative wire not forgetting the earth wire which is there for protection.
- Bring your focus to your intentions, goals and desires you want to manifest.
- Ask yourself the question - what thought form am I plugged into that no longer serves me?
- Now write them down and release them to spirit trusting all is well.
- Are my goals and intentions realistic?
- If not write down or voice which ones?
- Let them go is a good way of setting clear intentions, it's like writing a very important letter to someone, you check it to see if all is as it should be.
- Not forgetting to ask for guidance if you are unsure. As you do this, this is your earth wire, listen in a quiet space
- Be clear with your intentions.
- Be well-grounded as this new moon is a super new moon and it's so close to the earth and is very powerful at this time.
- now look at all the positive energy the sacred female and masculine within and where are they guiding us?
- Where and what in our life and on the earth are we being guided towards?
- Are you honouring your own inner truth?
- Are you living with integrity ?
- And how are you in relationships with others around you?
- are we relating to each other with respect and compassion?
- This powerful new moon is guiding us to take time and reflect and tune into the way we are in relationships, with ourselves and with those in our lives
- Have you had the freedom of self-expression or maybe it is on your list of intentions as the new moon is in Aquarius - FREEDOM of self-expression
So this new supermoon is guiding us to reintegrate the energies of the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine and move out of the paradigm of the outer balance of patriarchal energies of competition.
In other words what are you plugging your energy into? just like the plug you can plug yourself out, rearrange the wiring and plug yourselves into beliefs that bring about balance, peace, harmony, love, joy, achievement, abundance, respect for yourself and others, compassion with the self and others, to be in relationships that are nurturing, that is balanced, that is mutual and open to self-expression on all sides. Be true to yourself and support each other along the way. Come back and be in neutrality to heal and be true.
The new moon in the new year is a great opportunity to be the truth of who you really are and to reconnect with each other again and move towards new directions with a clear path ahead and plug into new ideas.
Blessings to you all on this new moon, love and light, Bernadette Mac
2nd January 2022
Hi everyone welcome to the first new moon of the year. And new moons are a great time to set new intentions. Planting new seeds in your life.
Maybe some of you would like to start a new job. Move to a new home and as it's the number 2 a new relationship with a new partner or with the self.
Starting with the self is a good place to start.
Look deep within and ask where do I need to change a pattern or a way of thinking about my life that no longer serves me?
Light a candle when the time feels right for you as you ask these questions...
Write all your questions down and don't wait for an instant reply just keep the flow, of your questions going like the flow of the candle?
Focus on the light of the candle for a moment before each question as this time has a very strong energy around this new moon.
All the astrologers are saying there is a massive shift in energy coming this year, shift is always happening even when we sleep.
So as we focus on the light of the candle with our questions in mind and our intentions. Let's start the year with a global intention with the light of the candle on each new and full moon...
By asking for healing, blessings, and change in our world
If each and everyone of us set the intentions by listening to our heart, see and feel that beautiful light in the flame of your candle and for the highest good of all, may we bring much healing to our world as well as ourselves.
Many healing blessings on this the first new moon of the year 2022. And if it feels right for you to burn your intentions from the light of your candle do so.
Much love and light. Bernadette mac
|Hi Everyone, |
welcome to a little moon-magic on the eve of the new moon.
Tomorrow is the first new moon of 2020, and just come out of the full moon with it being the wolf full moon and eclipse.
The new moon is now in Aquarius, the sign being a very deep one.
Are you already clearing your space, like an early spring clean, even though it's still very much winter?
Have you noticed the evenings are getting brighter and a feeling of new doors opening and getting things done?
Also there is an energy of dealing with deep rooted feelings that no longer serves us so that we can move forward. A great sense of reconnecting to your spiritual path. Also a time to put the past in the past and move forward, breaking patterns, actions and a way of thinking.
So I invite you to make a list of what you want to let go of on this new moon and burn it, let it go and embrace the new. Let the grief come in as it's necessary to grieve when you let go no matter what it is in your life. Maybe the loss of who you have been, and the old ways and patterns which no longer serve you.
I have been speaking to many lately who have been crying a lot after the full moon, like an inner cleansing as well as the outer in the body, mind, and soul.
I was guided to pull a card with this new moon and post it. It might be of some help to some and it's a good way to focus and two cards came out this morning, Trust And Nature.
May you be blessed with healing love and light on this new moon, Bernadette Mac.
As we come up to Little Christmas and New Moon on the 6th let's pause for a moment...
Did I make a New Year's resolution? If so, did I keep them in the past?
Celebrate the beginning of the New Year and New Moon by simply being yourself, the goddess in all women and men. Give yourself the gift of standing in your own light on Little Christmas.
It is traditionally known that women celebrate Little Christmas by getting together and the men doing the work in the home, male and female coming together in harmony on this day.
On Little Christmas bring the energy of the new if you wish to set intentions do so and let them go, like night becomes day, and the moon changes.
Not forgetting our ancestors and family and friends who are no longer walking with us in this world, but nevertheless walk beside us in spirit and deep in our hearts.
May you all have a peaceful Little Christmas and celebrate the new.
May the light and love always be with you, Blessings Bernadette.
19th of February 2023
New moon blessings to you all today. Hello all and welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
Tonight's new moon is a super one in Pisces an imaginative, emotional, intuitive sign of Pisces and a feeling of moving forward. New moons are a great opportunity to start afresh or just be and reflect, just glimpse back at the last new moon and see how in your life have you made changes to moving forward, are there some issues in your life still holding you back or stuck.
So on this new moon I've been guided to pull a card to see what message the universe bring into light and what came out was -
Surrender and Release
Meaning : let go and allow god and the angels to help you. Everything that you release will either be replaced by something better or will be returned to you healed. When you hold on tightly to part of your life that's not working, it has no room to heal. Whether you're unhappy with your love life, finances, career, Home, Health, or wealth this card ask you to just let go. If you hang onto these aspects of your life because of fear such as, what if I can't find someone or something better than the situation will only worsen. However if you're willing to open your hands and release and surrender one or two situations will occur either it will be washed away from you and replaced by a better situation, or the situation will heal in a miraculous way. I drawn to this card, the angels asked you not to try to control the outcome of your troubling situation let go, and let God help you.
Now that the new super moon is in Pisces and its a water sign going with the flow dealing with emotions. As you see the photo is a rainbow fish I photographed many moons ago in Egypt. If you look real close you can see his/hers shadow. Like we all have tonight is a good time to find the balance of the light and darkness. As the fish swims upriver forward his shadow goes with him/her - it is how we deal with it is the key. The more we heal the more we shine and the shadow becomes smaller.
When we Surrender and Release we heal and grow. Many blessings Bernadette Mac
1st February 2022
part of the Imbolc celebration - Start of a New World and a New Way - Home
Now we are on the night of the new moon the 1st of February 2022 in Aquarius
- The new moon is inviting us not only to bring about healing but it is inviting us to dream about our future and make it real.
- It's here to remind us that when we think about where we want to be tomorrow, we must lay down the groundwork for manifesting that desire today.
- So do that by setting your intentions, by writing them down on a piece of paper.
- Things you want to let go of that are holding you back?
- Take a few moments to focus on this and don't rush it.
- Ask yourself the question is this realistic?
- When you are done with your list of things you want to let go of read it aloud.
- As there might be some things you might want to add or take away.
- Again pause.
- Now make a list of things you would like to manifest.
- Again take your time and don't rush i.
- Ask yourself the question is this realistic?
- And when you are done, read it aloud.
- Again, maybe there are things you might like to add or take away from your list.
- Meditate on this if need be. No need to rush it, and it's perfectly okay to change your mind. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Listening to your inner guidance and how you are feeling will help you to make a choice that feels right for you.
- Now on the night of the new moon and also St Bridget's day you have the tools to help you to bring your dreams, new ideas, and new adventures, healing, love and light, into your world. With the healing cloths of St Bridget and her cross bring the same to all who need it, of course, for the highest good of all.
It is about shining your light so others can see in the dark. Wishing others well and healing.
|Rose quartz encourages unconditional love... look at the flame of the candle.... send that love out...|
24th February 2020
As the moon is in Pisces and marks the beginning of a new cycle, this is a good time to start something new, to commit to personal goals that express positive energies of the sign of the fish.
These include taking a leap of faith, accepting imperfections of ourselves and in others as a different kind of perfection.
a project that requires visualising skills, consciously putting time
aside for peaceful and rejuvenating activities, and sharing a dream with
another. With this potent Pisces energy we have to take a chance to
make important changes in our lives.
Key words - be gentle , loving and kind, help each other.
Many blessings, Bernadette Mac
21st March 2023
Hi everyone! Spring Equinox blessings to you all.
As I was unable to attend the ceremony on Tara I was guided to pull a card from sacred path cards and the card that came up was:
The standing people card speaks to us of root and giving. We must nurture ourself through connection to the earth in order to give freely without exhaustion. The root of the self where the strength is gathered. This root should be firmly earthed in the soil of mother planet. Without this connection, dreams cannot manifest and our giving cannot be compensated by the earth mother. If you are spaced out, stop and reconnect. Be still and become the trees in order to observe what's growing in your forest. Look at your family tree for the strength offered by your ancestors. Lift your branches high, seeking the light of grandfather's sun and you will see how your roots make you of the Earth and yet a Bridge to the Sky world, like a rainbow.
The standing people are asking you to give of yourself. Ask yourself if you're willing to give and receive, count the root of every blessing with gratitude. Find any blockage that limits your root system or ability to go deeper. Then remove that feeling and go deeper once again for answers you seek. Remember that you are also the root of the future and through our lives the future generations are nurtured. Weed out anything that will inhibit future growth and you can stand proud among you're free relations.
Aho! sacred tree of life, the root of every tree. Thank you for giving your gifts to me. Also standing people, from you I will learn to keep my roots well planted, to reach grandfather sun.
Aho! willow tree of love, teach me to bend, till I come full circle.
Each relation is my friend.
May my hands be cleansed, that they create beautiful things.
May my feet be cleaned, that they might take me where I most need to be.
May my heart be cleansed, that I might hear it's messages clearly.
Dear universe, may the energy of the new moon manifest the abundance and miracles I've been asking for, for my Higher good. Aho!
Many blessings Bernadette mac. New moon blessings to you all today.
2nd March 2022
Hi everyone. Welcome to the new moon in Pisces 2nd of March 2022. Just ahead of spring time is a very exciting time as this new moon in March welcomes new Energy we need after such unforgettable few years.
It's the time to plant seeds of new opportunities and open doors to new possibilities in our lives.
Not only will the days become longer and brighter the energy will be like a breath of fresh air, and we absolutely need it. There will be all kinds of good things happening because people will be feeling more optimistic and we'll have more faith. In spite of what's going on in the world today there is still a lot of healing energy around us. We just need to tap into this and remember who you are.
And this is the perfect time to restart, regardless of what's going on around you and in your life, that needs a little sprucing up and you can help with this change.
It's a time for planting seeds not just in our garden but in our own life as well.
Normally on a new moon there is a suggestion that you all write on a piece of paper all you want to manifest on the night of the new moon and burn it from the light of the candle you would use for your ritual or meditation whatever is best for you.
But on this occasion, just ahead of springtime, I've decided to plant my intentions in my garden with my seeds, offering up to the spirit guides and my angels and the spirits of nature and just let it go.
As you do this in a quiet place within your heart feel the love and send it to your seeds and intentions that you want to plant.
Again bring your focus back to your heart and fill it with peace, peace for the self and send that peace into the seeds and intentions.
Planting your seeds in your yard, garden, or flowerpot, and the intentions you have written on a piece of paper and let mother nature and the spirit of the wind, rain, sun and earth, of each and every intention that you have set and just let it go so the growth will be one of peace, love, for ourselves and for our planet or world at this time.
Also as it a time of Lent maybe there are habits you might like to break.
And also ask the question what habits do I need to let go of as it is now a time for a change after pancake Tuesday and some may embark on a 6-week journey of breaking on old habits?
Do I need to quit smoking ? Look at my diet ? What thoughts do I need to change in my mind that are no longer serving me? Self doubt? Negative thinking? What am I watching on tv ? Read more uplifting books? Get out in nature more ?
only you can answer these questions.... write down your own as you sit in a quiet space on this new moon...
Before we can manifest all our dreams, goals and desires, and peace, we need to let go of all that holds us back so new opportunities and new doors can open.
New Moon blessings to each and everyone of you today, may you be blessed with peace love and light. Bernadette mac
Coincidentally I just read that the Anglo Saxon name is Hreth's Monath. This is a name for the Earth goddess. So this is the Earth's Moon. Seems so appropriate that B suggests we plant our intentions. NJ.
13th March 2021
Hi Everyone, welcome to some Moon Magic on this the 13th of March
2021, a new moon in Pisces and the Spring Equinox. It's time to sweep
away the old and make room for the new.
I can't help but notice the abundance of rainbows over the past few days in our skies, which to me and many others would represent the chakras, each colour having a meaning on a healing level. So I ask you...
which colour are you drawn to in your life at the moment?
And I would invite you to focus on this colour as you set your intentions for the new season ahead and the up and coming Spring Equinox.
How do you plan to celebrate both as the sun is now shining longer in our skies along with the rainbows. As they are a reflection of the sun after a shower....
How do you feel after you have a shower or clean away the old of the past to make room for the new ?
Sweep away the old so the new can come in. All we can do at the
moment is to be as positive as we can. Do this in each moment and be
positive at the moment. You have that power when we focus on living one
moment at a time. Do what is best for you to do.
This maybe looking at the colours of a rainbow? Picking one colour or more to lift your vibration in that moment? Notice how do you feel when you see one ?
Maybe you need to bring more of that colour into your life?
Or maybe it's a colour you don't like and need to look at that?
Whatever is best for you, only you can know. Allow this colour to bring healing into areas in your life that need it the most...
24th March 2020
|I took this photo sometime last year, not sure when, but it drew me to it with what is going on at this time. |
As you can see the moon is in the centre of the dream catcher- a web - just like where we all are at this moment in time, not stuck but being present in our centre connection with each other via the web.
We are now being asked to tune in to all our senses as we stay at home, being creative, using our gifts in the home and sharing those gifts in a new way.
Many years ago when we had no internet our grandparents relied on word of mouth, on our gifts and talents. Food was cooked from the garden, which was grown back then even in urban areas as well as rural.
Now it's spring time, a time of new growth, new beginnings, and we are surely being asked to do just that, today I see how we are all connected in a new way using the web to stay in touch.
In a sense we are lucky to have and to use that web in a positive way.
So on this new moon a new beginning. Stay present and stay safe. Look out for each other.
Love and light, Bernadette Mac
Hi Everyone welcome to some moon magic on the 30th of April 2022.
Tonight is the 2nd new moon in April the first was on the 1st of April and tonight's new moon is the start of a solar eclipse in Taurus. So what does this mean and what are the energies? feel around you at this time, pause for a moment and reflect on the new moons gone by.
Yes, we have been busy setting intentions hitting the reset button but have you? Have you been saying you will go to places to meet people and not do so?
The new moon is in two signs this night, Taurus and Pisces. The focus is very much on the energy of these signs and the time of this eclipse. So with these signs we are working with water and earth energies which are very female - it's soft, it is receptive, it's quieter. Although we don't always know that. But it has to do with slowing down.
Yes over the past few months we have been setting intentions, planting seeds in our inner and outer gardens, and in our lives, to bring about growth and change. Working in harmony and balance with nature. Letting go of old and starting a new way of life.
So what can you do tonight on this new moon, in the energy of water and earth, is about slowing down, pause, be in the moment. When we slow down and pause it helps us to be more in the present moment and the present moment is where you feel and experience everything .. so tonight to be more in the present moment - set aside, by not setting intentions on this new moon, set aside a time of just being in the moment, do nothing, slow down and it being a start of a solar eclipse it has to do with the senses - hearing, smelling, seeing, tasting, feeling.
Can you sit with yourself tonight, do nothing and be in the moment?
Slow down and pay close attention on how you are feeling. seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling. Maybe you need to get more connected to your body and feel your feet deep in the earth?
When you do cooking have you done it without a thought rushing around like a headless chicken? so tonight on this new moon be more mindful, slow down, give yourself permission to just be. Slow down your eating, cooking, if you need to do some work just be mindful, as slowing down gives us more perspective on what going on in your life - a clearer view so to speak.
So this new moon tonight is a great opportunity to slow down, take time out, be gentle with yourself. Pause, slow down and be in the moment - look for the beauty - peace be with each and every one of you tonight new moon blessings.
On this 2nd new moon of April 2022 slow down. Set intentions of being in the moment, connecting to the energies of earth and water, focus on the breath and each slow step you take today.
Clear the mind by mindful walking. Eating. Tasting. Seeing . Listening. Smelling. Sing. Move in slow dance and feel the energies, vibration with balance, harmony and clearer perspective. New Moon blessings to you all today, Bernadette Mac
1st April 2022 - updated 2nd April.
Hi everyone, happy 2nd of April.
Yesterday was April Fool's day and was guided to post the Fool along with information about the new moon.
Only to discover today in fact the card was the Page of Swords!
I guess you could say my guides played a joke on me, so today the card the Fool is being posted.
Do hope you all had a good day on April Fool's day and feel free to post your joke to be honest I was got a few times.. Seen a post for a jacket for sale but there was only the hanger on the door. I thought how very strange. The comments were funny and the lady then said the jacket was for the invisible man... then to say after many comments April fool to you all !!!
Hi everyone welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
Tonight the 1st of April 2022, yes! it's April fools day.... a day of playing pranks. So I've been guided to post the card from the tarot deck 'the Fool' along with the energies that are going on at this and just after the spring equinox.
The April new moon will give us much needed jovial vibes to prepare us for the warm weather and now the bight evenings. Planting the seed of new beginnings for our personal lives and in our garden. There is great healing in planting a seed in our garden.
I've noticed lots of people cutting the grass and tending to their garden over the past few weeks and the colour of yellow, dark pink and deep purple flowers.
So how is your energy at this time of the new moon? only you can answer this question but rest assured the new moon is a great opportunity of starting afresh, set new intentions and plant not only seeds in our garden but in our lives, also deep in our souls. Let's start with the flowers we see in early spring.
Nothing says spring like a beautiful yellow Daffodil. This flower is guaranteed to bring joy to any home, garden or spring wedding and also it's fragrance is very uplifting.
White spring flowers like snowdrops bring purity, fresh start and strength.
Tulips of many colours: pink tulips symbolize happiness and good wishes and love, purple tulips symbolize royalty, yellow tulips symbolize joyfulness and white forgiveness.
So as you plant seeds maybe you can remember the meaning of each flower as you set your intentions into the earth on this new moon. Some now will be planting more seeds for the summer as I also have noticed the supermarkets have new stock of soil and flowers ready for the summer season. Just a little something to think about for the next new moon, full moon, or the spiritual wheel you may celebrate with Bealtaine which will be coming soon.
There is a lot of mixed energies about at the moment, one of which is like going through an initiation or the eye of a needle, a feeling of being outside looking into some of what is going on. It's so important to feel the energy of peace and love at this time again bring the energy of the new moon and it's the number 1, April first, new start and new beginnings and a great time to let go of the past once and for all.
Doing that gives you a lot of drive to move forward and just go for it. RESET AWAKENING, which happens within our hearts and to help each other on a spiritual level.
Send healing to others, feel and think loving thoughts that will lift the vibration for all that need it, for the highest good of all. Reach into your holy inner sanctuary, it can be prayer, meditation, and we can do this also in our garden planting the seeds that I mentioned earlier and using the vibration, energy, colour, love, peace, strength, purity, of each flower. It is not only very healing but connecting you to nature and there is great healing in that. As well as setting your intention on this new moon, on this the 1st of April, lead me to draw the card the Fool.
On the Fool's tarot card, a young man stands at the edge of a cliff, without a care in the world, as he sets out on a new adventure. He is gazing upwards towards the sky (and the universe) and seemingly unaware that he about to skip off a precipice into the unknown. Over his shoulder rests a modest knapsack containing everything he needs - which isn't much (let's say he's a minimalist).
The white rose in his left hand represents his purity and innocence. And at his feet is a small dog, representing loyalty and protection, encouraging him to charge forward and learn the lessons he has come to learn. The mountains behind the Fool symbolise the challenge is yet to come. They are forever present, but the Fool doesn't care about them right now: he is more focused on starting his expedition and new projects and new paths ahead. It's a great card for New Beginnings and opportunities today, just like the new moon is today on the 1st of April.
He's on a journey 'A New Beginning'. He has potential and he's standing at the edge of the cliff he's about to take his first step into the unknown.
Are you ready to take your first step into the unknown?
Even though you don't know exactly where you're going but you feel you must follow your heart?
No matter how crazy this leap of faith may seem to you now it's the time you need to trust for where the universe taking you.
As you undertake this new journey, setting your new intentions on the new moon, this card encourages you to have an open, curious mind and a sense of excitement. Throw caution to the wind and be ready to embrace the unknown, leaving behind and the fear, worry, or anxiety, about what you may or may not want happen. This is about new experience, personal growth, development, and new adventures.
There is so much more to this card but I felt very guided today to post it on this new moon. Again it's just a suggestion to guide each and every one of you.
And as it's April Fools day may I suggest that you have fun. Watch a funny movie, tell jokes with friends and have a good belly laugh.
If you play pranks keep them simple and fun like.
New moon blessings to you all today. Bernadette mac.
The Page of Swords shows a young man standing with his sword pointing upwards to the sky. His body and a sword lean in one direction, but he looks the other way as if to see what else is happening around him.
A breeze blows through the young man's hair, and the clothes behind and appear to through the sky bringing dramatic energy to the card. The ground on which the Page stands is green and fertile, suggesting that the Pages ideas are likely to bring positive change and forward movement.
The Page of Swords is full of energy, passion, and enthusiasm. When his tarot card turns up in a reading you were bursting with new ideas and plans for the future. You may be excited about starting a new project pursuing a new approach or learning something new. This card indicates that you have much energy and you feel as though you could do almost anything- and you can!
The challenge however is whether you can keep it up. Again there is so much information on this card but the basic idea is new beginnings, starting new projects and it's the time now on the new moon to go for it ties in wonderfully with the Fool. So I wonder was it meant to be?
Love, light and blessings to each and everyone of you, Bernadette Mac.

|New moon is in Taurus.
Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. It is a time of great change at this new moon and we are learning to accept it as a part of our life at this time.
Our world is not as we know it. It seems the pause button is on for now , and it's in our great interest to be well and safe and to look out for each other.
Taurus the bull stands his ground and you are being asked to do just that. Stand still. Don't rush head on. Be in the moment at this time.
this time you will come to know the self in a different way to the
past, come to have more self respect and love. That can bring a new
energy of respect and unconditional love for others. You by now have
come to see material things have no importannce , so tonight on this new
moon set only good intentions for healing for yourself and others so we
can journey through this as one, soul , light, and most of all love and
I read this morning something very interesting.
The organs influenced by this new moon in Taurus are the neck, larynx,
throat, vocal cords, thyroid gland, tonsils. So take good care of these
organs at this time.
When you respect and accept yourself for who you are it will become easier to find peace and tranquillity in the outside world.
May peace and love be with you all today, blessings Bernadette Mac
18th June 2023
Hi everyone welcome. New moon blessings to you all today on this the 17th of June 2023 or 18th depending on where you are in the world.
I was guided to pull a card to see what message comes through today and that message is - Understanding.
I hope this message brings some clarity to you all.
Meaning : The birds in the Page of Water card are looking outside, from what looks like a cage. This cage has no doors, and the bars are disappearing. The bar is an illusion, and thus little bird is being summoned by grace, by the desire for freedom and encouraged by the other birds. It is spreading its wings and getting ready for flight.
The dawn of new knowledge - the cage is always open, and the sky is always there for us to explore - can make us tremble a little at first. It's okay, and trembling is natural, but don't let it eclipse your chance to experience relaxing and adventure, right there alongside the trembling. This time, move with sweetness and courtesy. Feel the vibe inside you. Spread your wings and feel free.
The energy of the Page of Water on osho zen teachings:
You are out of jail, out of your cage: you can open your wings and the whole sky is yours. All the stars and the moon and the sun belong to you. You can disappear into the blueness of the beyond.... Just drop clinging to this cage, move out of the cage and the whole sky is yours open your wings and fly across the sun like an Eagle in the inner sky, the inner world, freedom is the highest value - everything else is secondary, even blissful ecstasy. There are thousands of flowers, uncountable, but they all become possible in the climate of freedom.
Many blessings and healing to all and may you find comfort in this message above. Bernadette mac.
29th June 2022
New moon blessings to you all today. Let's get emotional! Today's new moon is in Cancer and it's all about feelings and creativity.
Have you had doors opened that you thought you had locked? This is encouraging you to venture into new territory.
New moons offer us New Beginnings and the chance to look at things from a different perspective. Depending on where they fall in the sky. Cancer is a cardinal water sign, which means that we are encouraged to access our emotional stability and security, as well as the foundation our life stands upon at this moment in time.
Have you been feeling very emotional lately and dealing with past traumas that you thought were healed and dealt with?
Have you been having dreams or a re-occurring dream of emotional traumas?
Have you encountered situations where your old wounds have been triggered?
Not to worry - this is just old emotional trauma being taken away so you can start afresh, clearly, mentally, physically and emotionally
As we embark on this new journey and set our intentions on the new moon tonight know that we do this with clarity on all levels.
We can initiate new emotional journeys now. We also reflect on where we have been and how our ancestors led us to be where we now stand.
It also is a time of creativity. Have you been creative more than ever lately and up-cycling old stuff into new.
This is not only outer work but inner work.
As we create old into new remember this is coming from you, from deep within your soul in other words
The same goes as you set your intentions creating something new from something old, this is turning all old issues and emotional traumas into a positive, as we learn from all that had gone before.
As new moons occur usually once a month and are always tied to fresh starts, new cycles and unique journeys. Of course depending on where they fall for your rising and sun signs, you see an opportunity to seize the day and create actions Casper ultimately culminate within the coming weeks months or year ahead.
As we I have just celebrated the summer solstice on the 21st of June and before that a full strawberry supermoon the energies at this time a very strong. Some of you may be feeling this strong energy and seeing it's result in a way where coincidences happen quite often.
The new moon in Cancer is a great time again to start a fresh and embrace a new journey.
New moon blessings to you all, Bernadette mac
10th June 2021
New moon blessings to all tonight
As you all sleep so deep and tight.
And when you awake on the Solstice fire
May all your dreams and new goals manifest higher.
June new moon is one of rest, to recharge your energy back to its best.
As it's a Gemini new moon and full of fire
We need the rest to emerge and inspire.
New moon blessings to all that be.
Love and light, Bernadette Mc D
20th July 2020
Hi Everyone, welcome to a little bit of Moon Magic...
and it is happening on the 20th of the 7th 2020 and it is in Cancer. This is the 2nd time the new moon has been in Cancer. This is a loving gentle new moon as the sun and moon are in Cancer and it's showing you more of what you need right now. Not what you want.
As I said before, the new moon is a great opportunity to start over,
do something new or restart a new project you have put aside. The energy
around the new moon is one of truth, gentle and healing at this time,
not only with others but ourselves also.
So at this time of new moon I invite you to stop and listen.
Listen to your heart. Listen to what you need, Listen to your body.
Take a break, take a breath, take a pause and allow yourself to detach to what has been draining you and give yourself the needed rest. A night off, a weekend off, a lot of people have been saying how tired they have been feeling including myself, every person has been saying how tired they feel. 2020 has been so far very challenging for most people, having to work from home with no off button like taking a break, stopping at the time you would if you were in the workplace, even those who took to the garden and house revamping also felt the tiredness.
So, as things are slowly lifting in our world, some might find it difficult to get back into a routine. Have you found you went back to an exercise class or gym only to feel more tired than ever? back in the workplace not quite knowing where to start? take this time on the 20th of July 2020, on this new moon, to set intentions that are good for your body, mind and soul and do what feels right for you and set your intentions to honour that.
As we move into the fire sign Leo we will get going again, so take the rest, pause, drop anchor. After all, it has been a very big year. In this resting time, as you set the intentions, you can in that space tune in to what you want to give life to.
So on this new moon, set your intentions, rest, take time out, pause, drop anchor, downtime, give yourself a break, honour your body, mind and soul, so when the element of fire comes with Leo you will be ready and well-rested and grounded to go with the energy.
The keywords are downtime, rest, listen, pause, take a break and work with the energies right now. But most of all give yourself time to listen.
New moon blessings to all, Bernadette Mac
2nd July 2019
A little bit of moon magic last night...
The Cancer New Moon also a solar eclipse, a good time to start new projects and jobs, move into a new home.
It brings more awareness.
A time for family, here and past... our loved ones and ancestors...
As we remember them ask yourself what have I learned with them when they walked the earth?
Our loved ones, did they inspire me to carry on with my journey, the soul's journey?
As they learned from their loved ones before us, our ancestors, do I apply the teachings today with my family and loved ones?
It can be as simple as gardening, reading, tending to the family or doing something you have passion about.
It is good to find something in life that brings passion to nourish the soul. Heed the mind, body, spirit connection.
So as we journey into this month July 2019, with a little bit of moon magic be mindful of your goals, desires and passions.
Maybe it is time to start something new?
I missed the moon last night but was reminded yesterday of an event I did back in 2011 on the Hill of Tara on a full moon, Seven-bells, where a group of like minded people gathered together and we rang bells, chimes, so the sound would travel with our good intentions and prayers for our planet.
It rained quiet heavy but it did not stop us on the day. The sound was magical.
May you be blessed with love and healing. Bernadette.
|This photo was taken on the Hill of Tara, |
at Nora's home, where she use to live,
for Seven-bells first event.
Many good memories...
16th August 2023
New moons begin each lunar cycle, and similarly, they are a chance for us to spiritually reset and create intentions for the days and weeks ahead. We can't see the moon for a few days and in it's unseen phase is when we plant The Seeds of the future, just like when you plant a seed in the garden it is unseen and you trust in the process and let go. When we plant that seed we know it has a season to bloom and harvest we don't go out every day to check on it
The same goes for the new moon where we set new intentions and reset knowing in that moment some things will grow, some won't.
I remember a reading.
Don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed. Good advice I thought, but can we practice it?
Give it your best shot and if things work out great anything after that is a bonus. It's about finding the balance and been realistic. That's the key
There is so much that can steer us off track on new and full moons it's best not to overthink it. As this new moon is in the star sign Leo, the sign of pleasure and art, it's a powerful time to connect to with the heart space.
And reflect before we take action as we move into a new season of autumn...
New moon blessings to you all, Bernadette mac
8th August 2021
Light a candle to represent the light of your soul and also to send light to our world.
Write down on a piece of paper your intentions or maybe you would like to start with a blank page on this new moon and trust the energy coming in with this big event tonight.
Sit quietly, listen to the beat of your heart, drum if you wish with the rhythm of the drum and heart you also connect to the beat of mother earth. And just be still in the moment as a moment can last for an eternity
And as the date, today is the 8th of the 8th, the number 8 has been a symbol of eternity.
Let it all go and trust. Find an anchor and do a meditation. Get out of the head and into your heart or simply just be and stand tall and beam out your light and you focus on your lit candle sending healing to all from within.... from the heart and to all around us as we are all connected and are all awakening at this time.
Take 3 deep breaths and then open your eyes and feel your feet firmly
on the ground and trust that all is as it's meant to be in this moment
in time..... let it go as this change is happening.
New moon blessings on this new moon and keep shining your light love and light to you all, Bernadette Mac.
19th August 2020Some like to harness the energy of the new moon in order to fulfill their visions dreams and goals.
One way you can do this today is by lighting a candle or some incense in a quiet space where you feel relaxed and centred.
Write down what you want from life and focus on these goals while the
new moon is in the sky tonight. You may not see it but you know deep
inside it is there - you can feel the energy of it.
Maybe you would like to create an altar with sacred objects on it
such as pictures, stones, crystals or take a ritual bath with sea salt
to clear any negative energies you me feel that is around you at the
Do this before you set your intentions for the new.
|You may have noticed already the season is changing, the evenings are becoming darker much earlier and it's time to light the inner fires |
Just like the oak tree it's preparing to let go.
The chestnuts, people gathered and bring them in doors, others play games with them. They are a reminder of the autumn. And of letting go of what no longer serves us.
A new moon is a great opportunity to start all over again with the new project or ideas.
So on this new Moon I would like to wish each and everyone of you many blessings as we come into the autumn season and autumn equinox.
It feels this year the time is surely flying by so fast and it has been a very eventful time for everybody on the planet.
So with that note I wish you all new moon blessings. Love and light, Bernadette Mac.
30th August 2019A time of action, a time of go go go...
busy busy busy
and a sense of change and getting things done.
A little bit of moon magic on this the new moon in Virgo 30th of August 2019
A very positive and focused new moon this time around.
Again, without getting too much into all the meanings around it, I like to keep it simple... just touch on it....
A time of action, a time of go go go... busy busy busy and a sense of change and getting things done.
No more putting things on the back burner, so its back to school, back to work, back to the gym or exercise.
Your ready to take off with your new ideas and projects, it's a time of focus as we now come to the end of the summer and getting into the autumn.
Just like the spring it's a time for clearing your space, get grounded and bring balance in.
As this time gets busy, it is a very positive time, so bring in self love, accepting.
Have faith in the self as you move forward into you inner power and stepping forward into the new.
All the time stay connected to spirit.
As we get back to work, school, etc., best make sure you allow yourself down time and rest and eat healthy.
So I invite you to sit quietly for a moment, get focused on the now, take a breathe and look at all you have achieved up till now.
Maybe there are things you can now tick off on that list.
As we do that we make room for the new.
Key word – being, self love, self care, focus, health and positivity.
Wishing you all many blessings on this new moon, Bernadette Mac
1st August 2019
The 1st of August marks the day of new moon in Leo...
|Take time out to write down your dreams and goals.|
Make a list of what you have achieved this past year, no matter how big or small, for it is in the effort of making life changes that makes you happy and become that person you know is deep within the soul.
Leo, being a fire sign, as you write down your dreams and goals on the New Moon call upon the elements, mostly the fire within.
Be open to new ideas. By clearing the mind bring clarity to the self.
When the intentions are written down burn them on this New Moon. Let them go and trust.
Listen to the inner self, and trust all is well.
Do one thing that makes you feel good over this weekend.
Connect with like minded souls, share ideas, desires and goals from the heart. Have open heart sharing and inspire each other.
So on this New Moon may you all be blessed with Love, Peace, Abundance, Passion, Joy and Happiness. Bernadette Mac
14th and 15th of September 2023
Hi everyone welcome to this very special new moon in Virgo on the 14th and 15th of September 2023 depending on where you are in the world.
It is a time for deep healing and reflection, but also a time of letting go so we can embrace a fresh start and this September new moon is a great opportunity to do just that. The question is are you ready for a fresh start?
Now we have this September new moon in dutiful Virgo, helping us roll with the punches, and there will be plenty of those. This ends the date of mercury retrograde, luckily the new moon will be there to support us through the last-minute backspin mayhem as we get our act together post-retrograde drama.
Spiritually, new moons bring a sense of hope and beginning, and with the new moon being in Virgo the urge to prepare and organize is definitely felt. It is also the beginning of autumn, a time of letting go of the old and stepping into the new, my favorite time of year. The colours of the season are so magical it is surely a wonderful time to reset, refresh, and embrace change. However, you do not have to need virgo in your birth chart to feel this go-getter energy in this September new moon everyone can benefit from this moment.
I was guided to draw a card from the Osho Zen tarot deck to see what message the cards had to offer and the card is - TURNING IN.
What does this mean to "turn in"? its not about turning in or going
somewhere. Its about recognising ourselves inwards, within our very body,
being in the mind. To actually see what's going on inside our mind...
The extent to which we create confusion and or complication in our best
living in our body... As there is not always a perfect unison.
The point here is : You got it.
You are becoming increasingly aware of the smallest of movements within yourself. At this time of transformation. Especially on this new moon. Trust your intuition. Its your compass. The compass is like a form of compassion and forgiveness. The very act of listening to ourselves, that deep voice within, as our sound as who we are here is our 'truth " Trust it. Its the well of our well being as how we are able to pour out from the heart. This is what it means to speak from the heart. No thinking is really required. It's an in the moment trusting in ourselves here.
" IN" is the key word here. We are in this world. We are in this body. We are in/on this planet.
Today remember to know more than we know. Whatever we need is
available. When we allow ourselves to tune in to what is here happening
already - we become aware of many things beneath the surface the world
becomes an ever increasing multi-dimensional existence.
" Turning In" is a point of listening to what is here for real. This starts with ourselves in our own mind and ways of thinking. Initially this is a point of almost practiced Focus and attention because our minds and thinking have become somewhat accustomed with extra junk and clutter that isn't necessarily serving our best interests, our utmost potential. It's therefore slowing you down. "watch, tune in" to what your mind is 24/7 broadcasting.. and to within our broadcasting... programming.... to actually allow it to go and see it for what it is.
This is a layered process of sorts - in a way an art of living - a sort of 24/7 meditation in that you are standing as calm in the eye of the storm.. Or whatever the weather so to speak.. And thus :
On this new moon is a powerful time for" Turning In" and recognising
and realizing our creative potential and knowing what it means to direct
existence as a creator - One and Equal.
Calm- whatever the weather of the outside environment.
Intuition - Inner compass
Self - reflection
So in all the preparation and setting intentions, as we embrace whatever transformation on the new moon, listen to the inner voice and see how it feels with each decision you
make. This is your compass and it will not let you down..
Blessings. Bernadette mac
6th / 7th September 2021
Hi everyone and welcome to some moon magic, 6th and in some places 7th September 2021 in Virgo..
And keeping it simple and gentle this month as its the last new moon of the summer.
So what can this mean for you and your intentions on this last new moon of the summer season? As we come into the autumn bring to mind nature and how the leaves fall from the trees each year. So it gives us also the opportunity to let go of anything whether it be places, people, or a situation in your life that no longer serves you and just let it go, as nature does so each season with no effort as it's meant to be.
Also what new opportunities are there coming up for you at this time? new jobs, starting college, or going into a new class in school this year?
The 2nd year in a big change in our world..
Ask yourself what can I do that is more positive than the past as we let go? What can I change in my thinking as I prepare to let go?
As the energy of Virgo is much different to the energy of Leo focus on how we think, speak and feel as we plant new seeds, as we let go just as nature does..
Bernadette also felt very guided to post an angel card for the new moon.
And the short meaning of the card is:
A clear slate is presented to you right now as you now encounter fresh opportunities and novel experiences. Embrace the new in your life including new opportunities, people and projects. And Angels know that change can be frightening and thus around you now with love and energy.
New beginnings - On this new moon free yourself. Heal and find balance.
If you are losing power ask where am I losing power - take a moment to see this?
We are also coming up to the autumn equinox, great time to let go and bring balance into your life as the season is changing and so will you as, we are all connected.
Again ,if you wish write down your intentions on a piece of paper with the energy of the new moon and you may wish to keep it until a time to let it go - Maybe on the equinox???
So on this new moon may you be blessed with much love and healing blessings.
Angel blessings, new Moon blessings to you all tonight, love and light, Bernadette.

6th October 2021
Hi everyone! new moon blessings to you all today. The new moon today is in the sign of Libra - October the 6th - Relationship and love.
A new moon is a great opportunity for New Beginnings, starting afresh.
As the new moon is in Libra and Mercury is retrograde it's not a good time to sign contracts or new deals but it is however a great time to complete negotiation in your life and often to find items you may have lost and could not find will suddenly appear... and remember new moons are a great opportunity for New Beginnings and this is an opportunity to find more balance in your life.
Look at your life tonight as you set your intentions on this new moon and see where where you are off balance.
Maybe you are working too hard and not making time for relationships, watching too much TV or on social media. Maybe it's time to take a little break, get out in nature and ground yourself.
Is it also a great opportunity and the time ,on this new moon, for
healing. Healing relationships or healing yourself by surrounding
yourself with like minded people and getting, as I said, out in nature
and bringing balance into your life...
and it's also a great time to get creative.
Maybe there's something you want to write and you've been putting it
off or simply just having a bath with aromatherapy. Go to a meditation
group and chill out for a while. Learning new skills. Whatever is best
On this new moon what you want to bring into your life and create... do so tonight as you set your intentions.
I will also pull it card for today on the new moon and I will post it in a wee while for guidance.
Many blessings to each and everyone of you on this new moon tonight.
Super new moon the 16th October 2020.
Without getting into too much there's a lot of planets around the new moon tonight, according to the astrologers a lot of cardinal signs.
Which indicates sparks of ideas, new projects, relationships, jobs, whatever it is you want to manifest in your life - on this new supermoon do it with a very CLEAR intention.
The energies are very high and very strong at the moment on all levels and I invite you to lift your vibration to the light frequency as we approach the full moon on the 31st and also Samhain.
As the veil's are very thin at the moment. It's very important to set clear intentions to what it is you want to manifest in your life at this moment in time. Focus tonight, if you can, on more positive change in the world but, it must start within ourselves first.
As you sit silently later on this evening on the new super moon hold your hand close to your heart and remember all those who have gone before us are helping us whether we feel them or not.
Just as in the cloudy sky sometimes we cannot see the sun or the moon but we know in our hearts it's there, same goes for our guides, angels and loved ones and most of all our ancestors. Honour your ancestors tonight and many blessings on this new super moon.
28th October 2019
Hi everyone. Welcome to a little bit of moon magic.
This month the new moon is in Scorpio on the 28th of October one of the most powerful signs in the Zodiac. It is a water sign.
Some say it's all about death and rebirth this month, which would make sense as we approach Samain - Halloween.
A new moon is always an opportunity to have a blank canvas in your life, to start all over again, a step into a new energy.
Also today the time has been put back on hour which means the evenings are going to be darker. The light will be hidden until after the Winter Solstice when it will appear again. So there is a lot going on this month.
Getting back to the new moon and the energy of Scorpio - water, a
time of cleansing and new beginnings, a fresh start, death and rebirth.
Be gentle with yourself if you have come to a stand still, as it's
always important to rest and take time out.
We of course never see that at the time and feel we should always been doing something - getting things done. And we give ourselves a hard time, only to see at a later time it was meant to be that way.
I call it a crossroad in life. A time to reflect and trust all will work out. I know it can be very hard at the time when we feel stuck but have you ever looked back and thought,
“yes, I get it now. I'm glad I was still. I would never have known this or learned that”
and so on...
So on this new moon remember it is okay to stand still, as it's a time of death and rebirth, and to be gentle with yourselves and see the bigger picture.
It is also a time of remembering your friends and family who have passed on to the spirit world on this Samain. Those who look out for us all the time with guidance and gentle whispers and some humour as well. Light a candle for them so they also can see the way.
So be gentle with the self, trust, start afresh and let go.
Celebrate life and gratitude and remember our loved ones on this fabulous new moon.
23rd November 2022
Hi everyone, new moon blessings to you all today.
A new and exhilarating journey awaits, which is why we need to talk about how the new moon of this month November 2022 will have an effect on each and every one on some level. Depending where you are on your journey at this time.
Prepare to be inspired by new ideas and a fresh perspective, a spiritual reboot and a new found sense of hope.
1 When looking back on your past experiences, look at what was stopping you from stepping into your greatness?
2 again ask yourself the question how I can get through this block?
3 call on your guides and use the tools of your inner wisdom to help you
4 seek healing for oneself to heal any energies that no longer serves us on this new awakening, as the sun's journey is through Scorpio bringing about an emphasis to shadowy attributes we've subconsciously attached ourselves to, but also uncovered the alchemical gifts we have yet to cultivate.
Are you ready to step into a new dimension of reality?
Your soul is reborn upon the sun's shift into Jupiter - ruled by Sagittarius ; it's fires enlighten and enchant us with hope. Magic. Love. Abundance. And mystery. Jupiter the King of God's and the largest planet in our solar system, this planet reminds us of a big, beautiful shining tomorrow at the end of every day.
Coming up on it's heels the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, only at the end of every day there after a twinkle of more light.
With its awakening a spark of light in the soul and a rebirth of all new and great energy.
Half human and half spirit it's no wonder Sagittarius's archetype is depicted by magic and wonder, as its a symbol of its divinity and duality. And as the Archer aims the majestic arrow towards infinity.
We are reminded of endless possibilities during our journey of self discovery.
In the words of Rumi:
My arrow of love has arrived at its target.
So sit in silence for a while on this new moon to check within your own soul and feel and see where in your life, your arrow, is aiming.
May it be love. Hope. Abundance. Joy. Healing. And most of all connecting to divine source within your heart and soul.
New moon blessings to you all, Bernadette Mac
P.S. I do remember losing this arrow on the hill of Tara at one of the celebrations. Even though I have no idea where it went, I do trust all is well and my arrow is still on a journey of discovery.
4th November 2021
Hi everyone welcome to some moon magic and yes, I know I am a day late for the new moon which was on the 4th of November 2021.
I normally do some research for the new and full moons but my network was acting up, coming and going, and I could not even get onto my favourite radio station yesterday... even tried the radio upstairs... still the same thing so I thought, okay , going on? My car is in the garage again... felt the energies very strange on this new moon, things breaking down. So I took myself outdoors for a walk a lot this week, and listened to my inner voice and guidance, and became aware of nature and how it just flows and how walking for me can iron out some things in my life and in my head when there is no distractions.
First of all no radio station - not being able to tune into my station - was a big message I learned out walking.
Maybe I need to tune into a different frequency ?
Maybe we all do ?
Have you been getting out in nature lately or have you let things get in the way of that?
Like myself, the
network playing up I was forced out walking and having no car it got
me thinking and it helps for sure to clear the mind and good for the
body and soul.
I became aware of
nature - so many leaves on the ground and yet still beautiful colour
everywhere as the trees let go and the odd rose been around to remind
us that it's the circle of life. That drew my mind to All Souls
Night, just before the new moon on the 4th of November. I asked the
question what would all who are now in spirit say of our world today
I got to listen,,,, to
listen to my inner voice and what I had seen around me this week.
What do you see around
you as you cannot get lost in social media or get into your car to
drive somewhere in nature? When you can find it just as easy on your
doorstep, in your back garden or just simply looking at a houseplant
you tend to nourish and grow.
As I sat in the evening, with an open fire and lighting a candle for All Souls Night I got a very uplifting feeling. Yes the simple things in life are so important, watching the flames of the fire with good food I felt a certain kinda peace and contentment in that very moment and being in the now I felt it okay not to post on the day of the new moon.
|Sometimes we need to be still and listen and I wanted to share this with everyone.|
this week nature is a very healing place to be. It speaks to us if
we open our hearts and listen. It clears the mind so we can see
things more clearly and as I sat by the fire with good food I let
that peace just wash over me. It's so important to be every now and
then and to see what is going on not only in your inner but also the
outer world as we are all one.
So I turned on the TV
to watch some of my favourite soaps and low and behold they were some
hidden messages in climate change as they were big meeting this week
I only became aware of as I turned on the TV Some might say it can
be very negative but what I witnessed was very positive on East Enders
they share a video from Coronation Street of car pollution and
Emmerdale was shared on how to use old plastic bottles to build
greenhouses. It seemed like all the writers got in a little message
on world wide issues.
So that was my
experience on the new moon and it was food for thought as it got me
thinking of what I can do around my home and surrounding areas. And
they had a meat free day also so I thought and felt for the new moon
and full moon maybe we ourselves can set our intentions on planting
more small tress in our garden, shrubs, wild flowers, so the bees
will have more of a choice next spring and summer. This is just a
suggestion and entirely up to each one of you to do what feels right
for the good of our planet for the highest good of all.
I also was very drawn
to the winter solstice coming on the 21st of December just after the
full moons on the 19th December and 19th of November. The
winter solstice this year has me very excited but can't put my finger
on it. Maybe closer to the day all will be much clearer, maybe its
the knowing of the evenings getting brighter again but in the
meantime be still, listen to your inner voice and guidance, do one
small thing as you set your intentions for the new and full moon to
bring about positive change in our beautiful planet, of course for
the highest good of all involved.
New moon blessings, Bernadette Mac.
15th November 2020
Hi Everyone, happy new super moon to you all on this the 15th of November 2020.
The new super moon is in Scorpio this time around and also Mars is
retrograde since the 5th September. So what does this mean you ask
I know for me and some I have been talking to all have been feeling
blocked and very stuck, so I feel this new super moon is a great time to
shift some of that feeling of feeling stuck... and a lot of angry
energy about with all that has been going on, and big problems with
technology going off the grid and not being able to connect and
communicate with friends and family. A feeling of frustration not to
But not to worry because things are going to shift. Mars will move a bit and we are in the star sign Scorpio and it's a sign with a 'dig deep' energy. Go within and bring the focus back to the self, to basic things in life, small changes and be gentle with yourself.
This is the 3rd super moon and the energy is very high.
It's a great time this evening to set your new intention, whether
with prayer, meditation, writing down your dreams, goals you want to
manifest, lighting a candle, setting a safe space in your home or garden
and to be just in that moment.
This is the time of year to let go, look at nature all around you and see the beauty of nature.
Letting go, connect to that nature. Go deep within on this new super moon. Let go of all that is holding you back from moving forward and being stuck. Let go of fear and replace it with love. Let go of anger and replace it with peace. Let go of sadness and replace it with joy.
Most of all feel gratitude before we embark on asking for something new in our lives on this super new moon.
Raise your vibration, as the moon is very close to the earth at this time. Set clear intentions and connect to your guides and guardian angels and have the image of the phoenix rising from the ashes. See and feel the fiery passion from within as your set new intentions.
Focus on the heart and your feelings as you raise your vibration. Ask yourself:
What patterns do I need to break free from? and let them go.
Most importantly keep the focus on the self, your spiritual self, and
pay attention to your dreams. You can get great information. Keep a
Be mindful of your thoughts also as the veil is very thin at the moment and the new moon being so close. And, if negative thoughts or feelings come in, say to yourself aloud:
"I do not choose that as my reality" as many times until you feel it shift away.
Focus on the love you have in your life. It can be as simple as a pet, a person, your love of nature, rivers, trees, and so on and you will start to feel different.
Flick the switch, like flicking a switch on the remote control, until it feels better with you deep within.
Which brings me to the story of the two wolfs. Which do you feed the most?
There is a change in our world right now. A birthing and new
beginnings. So feel love, peace, joy, laughter as we pull the beautiful
energy of the super new moon tonight and many many blessings to you all
as you rise like the Phoenix from the ashes, as you set your new
Blessings, Bernadette Mac
26th November 2019
Hi everyone, welcome to a little moon magic today.
Today we have a New Moon in Sagittarius at about 3.05pm Uk/Ireland
time, it pulls energy in to recharge for the up and coming full moon.
The feelings and energy around the New Moon for some this month is one of take time out, recharge.
Take 10 minutes out today to connect to your inner self. If you are a
very busy person take 3 minutes. Connect to the solar system within the
self, as above so below, we are all one. Your heart is your sun and the
moon your feelings, and it being a New Moon it's always an opportunity
to start over from a new place.
Clear your space, in your home, work, etc etc... and go to the heart.
How do I feel? what can I do today to help myself to get my energy to a place of a deep knowing?
It's important to take care of the self today, it is something we forget to do. So self care today.
Sagittarius, being half horse half man, has got his bow and arrow and
he always has a plan, a goal in mind, and he is going towards that.
He represents stability and security in numerology, so you're being
giving a perfect opportunity to pull in your energy like the New Moon
As the sun and the moon are conjunct, if you have been feeling a bit
lost of late not to worry, all is as it should be, as we are all
connected to all there is. As above so below.
Use this time of drawing in the energies, taking time out to let the inspiration come in, like light bulb moments.
Maybe some have been feeling or experiencing this at the moment.
Have you been getting signs from the universe that confirms “yes, I get it now.”?
I would like to share for me, for example, I see a combination of
numbers on car registrations, digital clocks, etc etc. I have been
seeing 222, 444, 888.
Maybe you see things more than once? Pay close attention to this.
Have you been hearing a song on the radio or something only you know that reminds you of a loved one passed or still with us? Loved ones that have been a great inspiration and strength to us over the course of time?
Again only you will know.
So on this New Moon today, be gentle with the self, clear your space,
set clear intentions, hear the messages from guidance, see the signs.
In the word of Rumi:
“the arrow of love will always arrive at its target”
Many blessings, Bernadette Mac
Fox and Deer
It's been brought to my attention that in the picture of New Moon I posted that if you look closely you will see an outline of an animal in the clouds, of a fox or deer.
The Fox is about being invisible and waiting for the right moment, a way of protecting the self while building confidence.
The deer is regeneration.
Of course the photo of the moon is an old one, taken the 26th April 2013 at 22.29. Maybe a sign????
23rd December 2022
Hi everyone welcome to some moon magic today the 23rd of December 2022.
Today/ tonight, wherever you are in the world, is the last new moon of the year and it is in Capricorn, the sea goat, element Earth, the 10th sign of the zodiac. The number 10 in numerology is about FRESH NEW BEGINNINGS. A perfect time on this new moon to do just that - new path, new start, leaving behind and healing of what no longer serves you.
As we have just passed the winter solstice and we are still in the stillness of going within and not venturing outdoor, unless it is necessary, the new moon in Capricorn is the right time for starting afresh. When you think about it, goats can climb to a top of a mountain overlooking all that is and can see for miles. As I write this I have an image of the Fool in the Tarot standing at the edge of a cliff, ready to venture into a new world, a new adventure, a new way of life with no baggage on his back but a light rucksack with a smile on his face and an energy of magic and wonder. Tapping into the fearless side of his or her self, moving forward. we have all embarked on this journey in our lives at one point, where we had to up sticks and go just like the goat and the fool looking across the earth.
Ask the question, whose voice is it ? pause on this for a while. Was it me or someone who told you this, and you now believe this to be so?
If so, what can you do or already doing to change that pattern today ? Because you can do this.
Change your thinking and watch the feelings melt away ?
It takes time and practice but it can be done. Have faith in yourself, believing in yourself, and stepping into the new wave of energies that are happening in our world today. Yes, there is a lot of darkness too. Don't feed it - send light and healing to this place but first, we must heal the darkness within ourselves, as within so without, as above so below, the yin and yang balance.
So on this new powerful new moon, with energies so high with light, change, and a time of gifts and a new way of life, A FRESH START.
Set your intentions not only for healing within but outer. Just hold that image of the goat climbing to the top of the mountain. How many mountains have you climbed in your lifetime? See the positive in it. Maybe at the time it was hard, but you did it anyway. Think about that. Bet it's something you never thought of before.
As you set intentions for friends and loved ones, see a golden healing ray of divine light coming from your heart to them - and of course for the highest good of all involved and to loved ones passed, as they guide us every moment of every day.
Thank them also, sending them healing and our ancestors for the wisdom, the lessons, knowledge. It's time now to heal all karma so we can go across that mountain once again, to a new and better place of light, love, and new adventures. Yes we have our challenges - think and feel only good thoughts and healing for all involved.
Many blessings on this last new moon of 2022. Love , light, blessings Bernadette Mac
4th December 2021
On this New Moon 4th of December 2021 seek answers to your heart burning questions by looking inward.
New moons are usually a great opportunity for setting intentions and because this is the last New Moon Of The Year it seems like the perfect time to do so. However because the December 2021 new moon is also an eclipse it's better to use the energy for reflection rather than manifestation.
New moons don't reflect any light and that is why it's sometimes
called a dark Moon-- and metaphorically this explains why we tend to
have quieter and more introspective experience under these luminations.
So I invite you to reflect inwards on this new moon on spiritual expansions and personal evolutions we've experienced over the past 2 years.
Seek answers to your heart burning desire by looking inward.
And trusting in your own inner compass, it's going to be the key during this eclipse. We can gain some helpful perspective on things if we need also to reach out to a friend or a mentor and have a chat with those who might have different belief system to help you work through any difficult shifts on this new moon.
While still seeking answers within tune into your heart and trust that the answers you seek will emerge.
Rumi - What you seek is also seeking you
New Moon blessings to you all, Bernadette Mac
14th December 2020
Hi Everyone and welcome to a little bit of moon magic as we approach the new moon on the 14th of December and Jupiter and Saturn will align in the night sky to create the first "Christmas star "in nearly 800 years. Now that's magical.
2020 has been a year all of us will never forget but it will finish big on the night of the new moon. A fantastic light show. a wave of shooting stars, a week later Jupiter and Saturn will form a visible alignment and it's the closest they have ever been from earth in 800 years. Wow! you ask yourself:
What can this mean for me and our world?
.... in these strange, and yet wonderful times, on our planet, as nature continues to go about doing what is best. Seasons come and go and with it change, death and rebirth. light and darkness. Seeds begin to grow, die and do it all over again, all the time trusting in nature without any resistance.
Maybe we have learned over this past year it is time to trust in our inner light and darkness, let things go and trust as we all sail this boat together, just like Jupiter and Saturn are starting a journey together.
So what can this mean for me at this time?
Maybe on inner journey to the self ?
What intention are you setting on the new moon for yourself as we come to the end of 2020 into 2021?
What hope and dreams are you looking forward to in January 2021?
Are you asking, Who am I? Maybe your being asked to raise your vibration.
A higher energy field? Maybe new friendships?
So ask yourself at this time of new moon, What do I want to start anew, to carry me into 2021 but also beyond?
Just like what Rumi said
"out beyond ideas of right and wrong doings there is a field, a singing field. I'll meet you there"
The new moon on the 14th of December is surly a magical one.
Things coming to an end as the year comes to the end, 2020. As with all years before that, they came to an end. It's just the way it is and has been since the beginning of time. But, I can say in the case of 2020, we are not only going to be celebrating the New Year but the end of a year when the whole world stood still, sailed to shores and lands for cures, and a new way of thinking and living.
A time for sure to lift our vibration as we not only embark on the new moon, full moon, winter solstice, and Christmas, along with alignment of Jupiter and Saturn, meteor showers and the sun alignment into chambers time forgot where our ancestors once knew all the that was to come as they relied on the sun , moon and stars to guide them.
It's time now to do the same again. Allow the inner voice of our wise ancestors whisper to us again and trust.
Today we have internet and so forth to help for sure, but on this full moon drop the technology and listen, see, and hear just like they did. They watched the sun rise and set in all seasons along with the stars and knew when to sow a seed, make a wish and set new intentions. Theirs was as simple as hoping crops would grow for the coming year, the stars at night light up the darkness along with the moon, which also told them of the seasons and of things to come.
Just like the story of the 3 wise men who followed a star that lead them to a new dawn, a new sun/son being born. Without that sun there would be no growth, no light and hope, the stars were heavenly guides in the sky letting us know all is well and to see the bigger picture.
So on the 14th of December new moon in Sagittarius Solar Eclipse
|If you look at the star sign Sagittarius you will see the archer holding a bow and the bow is leading us to higher truths, higher learning and beliefs that come from a place of love and wisdom and |
It is symbolizing trust for knowledge and wisdom at this time and it sure is a perfect time to expand your wisdom and all you have learned over the years to help not only yourself but others.
With all that in mind on this new moon, 14th of December, as you set your intentions put the image of the archer in your mind, shooting the arrow to a place of love, wisdom, and healing for all in our world as well as in your own life, for the highest good of all involved.
New moons are always a great way to start new intentions, ideas and
start afresh so to speak. Not only is it the new moon but we also have
Jupiter Saturn conjuction / alignment.
So, if you can, visualize the image of the star sign Sagitarius
sending the arrow, along with the alignment of the planets, to a place
of divine love.
With all that is going on in the night sky maybe the heavens are trying to get our attention. and this new moon is a great time to listen. Listen to the inner wisdom of the soul. As we come up to the winter solstice, and new year, not to mention the full moon, the age of Aquarius it sure is exciting times.
|And the word "new" is coming up a |
lot. And people will be coming together again.
So, on this new moon, set your intentions with the image in Sagittarius shooting the arrow as a symbol of planting seeds of divine love, healing, wisdom, new beginnings.
All this is happening in a window of three and a half hours, so use those hours wisely.
Surely a big new beginning and very exciting. And as you set your intentions over the next few nights and days to come, let it go just like the arrow. Once you shoot it it's gone.
As Rumi said:
the arrow of love arrived at its target
So on this new moon my wish for you all is -
may all your dreams come true, may you be blessed with healing and love. and may the truth set you free.
Love and light Bernadette Mac
