A New Year is Dawning...

Today is the 31st December, and whatever day you may celebrate as the end of the year (winter solstice, all hallows, Chinese New Year etc), with so many millions of people seeing today as the last day of the year, there is a strong energy of endings and beginnings today.

I see today as a day of reflection, a day for contemplation, giving thanks, and a day for healing. It is another time when the psychic superhighway is much quieter; with so many people partying and having fun; it is a good time for distant healing: for the earth and all those who dwell on, in and above her.

Saturn moves into his retrograde phase today, he will remain there until May 2009; now is the time to truly start taking responsibility for our lives. It is time to be accountable for our actions, and we owe it to ourselves (if not each other, and the planet) to embrace our full potential and reach for the stars.

As I have mentioned before, it is a time to make peace, to let go of judgements and to feel the empowerment and freedom of guiding ourselves. Whilst we look set to become much stronger as individuals, this will, maybe a little paradoxically, bring us closer together with each other.

In many ways, the financial and economic outlook for the coming year is bleak, but 2009 looks set to be a year of positive change and abundance. Another paradox? Or simply the fates way of showing us that abundance and prosperity comes in many forms…

Have a wonderful, bright and abundant 2009.

Well it's not just me....

It seems that I am not the only way who has been changing names. My change was simply to change my main website from Sarah Jane Grace to The Planet Whisperer.

I saw a TV advert last night with Bruce Willis and Alice Cooper, amongst others. The advert was was for Norwich Union or Aviva as they are now known. The quote from the end of the advert was quite thought provoking:

'Sometimes a change of name is more than a change of name. Sometimes it a chance to show the world who you've always wanted to be'.

Interesting, for whilst I am still Sarah-Jane Grace, there is no denying that the new website name - The Planet Whisperer has a different energy, and it is an energy that feels quite exciting.

I have already had some wonderful comments on the name change, so onwards and upwards...

The Spirit of Christmas

Well today is Christmas Day - a wonderfully quiet time on the psychic superhighway, so a great day for a a few thoughts.

Whatever our beliefs, today is a great day for showing gratitude for what we have in our lives. It is a time for giving, sharing, celebrating and joy.

For many Christmas is about expensive presents, over-indulging and family arguments. For others, it is a truly religious day, a celebration. There are many though who will spend this day alone, without any contact with the outside world, without a conversation, without a friendly smile - some have no home, no family, no place to go. For others, today is a day of work - for armed services, doctors, nurses, police, firemen, care workers etc - they will spend at least some of this day away from family and friends, away from the celebrations.

All I want for Christmas is for everyone's hearts to be filled with love and joy, and this is my way of sending out healing thoughts to everyone, to acknowledge those who are often forgotten, and to ask that we all come together to celebrate the true Spirit of Christmas - love.

A Lunar Message

Yesterday's Full Moon in Gemini was just as powerful as many people predicted. I meditated to connect to the lunar energy, and I received a message. Whilst it was for me, it seems prudent to share this with you, as it really does apply to everyone.

'You need to live, to love, to be loved, to take risks, to fail, to succeed, to make mistakes, to look like a fool sometimes. Your life is for living, be yourself, be bold, stand firm. Love life, love yourself, love others, love the planet. Be true to yourself, open your heart and embrace your potential. Live your life to the full, push your boundaries, expand your horizons, do something new each day.

Believe in yourself and your dreams, and know that you have the power to make your dreams come true - believe it and it will be so. There is no room for fear or doubt, you owe it to yourself to follow your dreams, follow your heart and welcome each new day with heartfelt gratitude and joy.

2009 is a year to step out of the shadows and to embrace your destiny. It is a year to seek out the joy and abundance within and without. It is a time to come together with kindred spirits, it is a time to make a difference'.

2009 - Onwards and Upwards

As we move towards the end of 2008, Pluto finally settles in Capricorn. He will remain there until 2024, and as the catalyst of change, he will guide us through some dark years and times ahead.

On the 31st December, Saturn moves retrograde until May 2009. This period sees us becoming our own inner fathers – guiding, protecting and inspiring ourselves. Taking full responsibility for our lives is a difficult challenge for many, but it is only by doing this that we can truly take a step closer towards enlightenment.

The beginning of 2009 sees a huge build up of energy in Capricorn and Aquarius. And this marks a time for us to step into the unknown, following our paths to be the individuals we know we can be.As our inner worlds become more tranquil and abundant, the external world will see more turbulence and upheaval.

Through standing in our Truths and being at one with ourselves and the Divine, we will stand firm through this upheaval, like buoys holding fast in a stormy sea. These challenges are not yet at our doorsteps though, and whilst we would be wise to prepare, there is plenty of time for love, laughter, light and expansion.

2009 looks set to be a year of discovery, freedom, abundance, enlightenment and joy. It is a year to follow our dreams, to let go of everything that is inessential or unnecessary. It is a year to focus, to be motivated and to allow our passion, individuality and energy to shine brightly.

Flight of the Hummingbird

Hummingbird's have been featuring very highly in my dreams and meditations recently. Whilst they may be one of the smallest birds (if not the smallest) in the world, they are vibrant and energetic, and completely unforgettable.

In many ways, the hummingbird reminds me of the energy of the planet Mercury - buzzing, rushing, communications. There is also a sense of joy connected to hummingbirds, for they have an ability to make most people smile.

Hummingbirds represent the elixir of life (they feed on nectar), they help us to see the joy in our lives. They also help us to keep going, even when the going gets tough, becuase hummingbird can help us to see the possible in the impossible. They give us the courage and the beleif to keep going, even when things seem uncertain and full of doubt.

These beautiful birds also have an impact on the emotional level for they can help us to purify and cleanse ourselves of trauma and blocks that may be holding us back in life. Of course, hummingbirds have the ability to fly backwards, and so this bird can help us to look backwards and to let go of past pain, hurt and grief.

After the ups and downs of 2008, hummingbird can not only help us to be free spirits, but this tiny little bundle of vibrancy and vitality can inspire us to move into 2009 with love and joy in our hearts.

A New Beginning

December is here and this month will see the re-birth of the next phase of my website. I have re-named my new site The Planet Whisperer, mainly because I like the name, but also because this describes my relationship with the planets much better than astrology.

Whilst I have studied astrology and experiential astrology, I work very organically with the planets and in many ways they 'communicate' with me. I am loathe to use the word 'channel', but this is a word that people understand.

This blog will be dedicated to my thoughts, musings, inspirational ideas on astrological/cosmic events, spiritual happenings and other items of interest.

I feel that a new day is dawning with the launch of the new website name. I have finally found my place.
