  • 73: Scorpio Full Moon April 2024

    Find out information on the Scorpio Full Moon taking place in April 2024 and what it means for you. This episode covers the Scorpio Full Moon energies and themes such as transformation and diving deeper into your inner world. There are also channeled intuitive messages as well as journaling questions for the Scorpio Full Moon.

    Scorpio Full Moon April 2024 Summary

    We have the full moon in Scorpio on the 23rd or 24th of April pending where you are. It’s been a big time of emotions and fluctuations given the recent eclipse season and now Scorpio’s energy enters the picture. When you have scorpio in the air, especially in a full moon, you know there’s going to be transformation and intensity. You know that it’s going to dive into your inner workings, your subconscious, your emotions and your shadows. It embodies the cycles of life, death and rebirth. 

    The dynamic nature of life

    To be alive is to be constantly in the process of change and transformation because life is dynamic not static. It is simply the nature of life. 

    We see this everywhere around us: in nature – the environment around us whether it’s trees shedding leaves or flowers blooming to animals adapting to the changing world (a recent example I saw was the incredible footage captured of emperor chicks bravely jumping off 15 metre/50 feet ice cliffs in Antarctica in to swim for the first time because of depleting sea levels, the leap is greater than ever than what it used to be). 

    Yet we as humans resist it because we fear change and the uncomfortable feelings and thus the energy of the Scorpio full moon plays its hand to encourage us to face this truth whether we are willing to or not.

    The tension and discomfort of the Scorpio Full Moon

    I remember reading somewhere describing when Scorpio enters the picture with the influence of Pluto (the biggest planetary influence in conjunction with this full moon) is also in the air it’s like the awkward family reunion you’ve been avoiding but knowing you have to face and confront, it can be awkward and uncomfortable but ultimately so rewarding and rich in growth. Taurus the backdrop to everything is a fixed sign and change adverse, as is Scorpio so there will be tension, maybe that sensation or feeling of the universe dragging you by your feet. 

    Channeled messages for the Scorpio Full Moon April 2024

    A really interesting channeled message that came for anyone listening to this podcast was that there’s freedom in everything that falls apart. Surrender is that willingness to let what is happening to happen. We think freedom is peace, and it is but it is also the absence of resistance to give way to flow. I also wanted to shout out the word that kept coming through was “dissolve.” 

    Let life do what it wants. Have faith in the process of why things are unfolding the way that they are. How can you reflect and reassess on being attached vs unattached? How does the ego or non/false sense play into what is going on in life for you? What can become less of a struggle with awareness that may dissolve the intensity and pressure of what you are experiencing?

    Scorpio Energy and Taylor Swift - The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD)

    The scorpio full moon is a powerful and raw time to go deeper. A time for realisations and reflections. A time for letting go. A time for liberation. Relating this to what is unfolding real time, I think Taylor Swift’s new album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ really embodies the energy of the Scorpio full moon. She pleas temporary insanity and reflects upon getting out of the slammer into the tidal way in her summary poem that accompanies the album speaking to the spectrum and amounts of feelings she’s been through in the past year and beyond. 

    We gain insight to the full spectrum of emotions she has been through and the contrast of it all from “I’m trying to stifle my sights, cause I feel so high school every time I look at you” to “You hung me on your wall, stabbed me with your push pins. In public, showed me off. Then sank in stoned oblivion.”

    High expression and alchemy of Scorpio

    Truly Taylor Swift leans in and embraces the high expression of Scorpio which is the alchemy of turning emotions that can be perceived as dark and negative such as heartbreak, grief, anger, sadness and disappointment into raw powerful songs that so many can relate to and ultimately for her hit songs, greater recognition as an artist and abundance (I mean a huge aspect of her success stems from being inspired by her emotions and experiences greatly heartbreak and she’s now a billionaire!). She even acknowledges and recognises her own power, “You know you’re good when you can do it even with a broken heart.”

    Closure with the Scorpio Full Moon in April 2024

    In conclusion the Tortured Poets Department album and anthology serve as her closure, “This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up. There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed.” This speaks to another theme of the Scorpio Full Moon: closure. 

    Closure provides one part to a framework for letting go to occur particularly within yourself: acknowledgement of what is coming to an end or perhaps even a ritual to indicate so. 

    Without a form of closure it can be challenging to let go because of this sense of unfinished business or something is unresolved. It is closure that sets the stage to letting go. Perhaps take a moment as you listen to this to reflect on perhaps if there’s anything in your life that you feel needs closure? If there’s been closure for you, what is the next step for you in consciously letting go?

    Journaling questions Scorpio Full Moon April 2024

    As we delve into the realm of the Scorpio full moon the advice that I can share is tune into your intuition and deeper knowing, it isn’t about logic, it’s about your truth. This is a time of getting really intimate with yourself, in many ways.

    Journaling questions for the Scorpio Full Moon in April 2024 here we go:

    Take a moment to check in with yourself. How have you been feeling? Check in moments of time being the lunar eclipse around the end of March this year, the solar eclipse at the beginning of this month in April and last week leading up to this Scorpio Full Moon.

    Where do you fear change in your life right now? Is it holding you back? 

    What do you want to let go of and surrender with this Scorpio Full Moon?

    Does resistance currently show up in any area of your life right now, and if so why?

    What process of alchemy can you utilise in your life right now. Where or what is the coal that can be transformed into gold?

    Reflect in your life the cycles of birth, death and rebirth and where your current life experiences and emotions fall under each category.

    The new moon to this full moon was around November 13/14 2023, reflect on what has changed since then within yourself and life? What did you manifest with this new moon and how is it unfolding now? 

    Scorpio Full Moon April 2024 Practices

    Other practices to consider: how to unleash any pent up energy with this Scorpio full moon through your emotions, expression and even sensuality and sexuality (after all Scorpio governs the genitals and is the sign most associated with sex). 

    I get channeled images of setting a timer to do unfiltered writing or putting on a playlist and letting your body move the way it wants to and feels called to. 

    Our emotions are known to be stored in our hips so if you’re moving, sway those hips or do yoga poses or practices to open your hips. Run a bath to physically and metaphorically sit with yourself including the ick and dirty then cleanse and let it wash away. 

    Create a practice of meeting your shadows, writing down familiar patterns that seem to have you stuck, things you seem to routinely do that don’t serve you and brainstorm ways to move through them, get help and break free (we can’t change what we don’t know!). Perhaps it’s the need to bring back pleasure into your life, because life can get heavy and serious, injecting moments of feel good or getting out of your head (which is what pleasure can do!). 

    May you harness the power of the Scorpio full moon to go beneath the surface of your inner world, to shed what no longer serves you and kickstart a new cycle of life and rebirth. If you need or would like help, support and guidance I have 1:1 coaching sessions and spots available as well as human design readings. If you’re not sure which would best help, feel free to do DM me on Instagram @thephidang or email me and together we can figure it out!

  • 71 – Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse April 2024

    Information on the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse taking place April 2024 on the 8th and 9th. Phi reveals how the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse may impact you individually as well as collectively with themes of new beginnings, purpose, destiny and healing. Within this episode are also journaling prompts and questions for the Aries Solar Eclipse.

    New beginnings with the Aries Solar Eclipse in April 2024

    Hi beautiful souls, the time has come and it is the Aries new moon solar eclipse visible across North America on the 8th of April! This will be Tuesday the 9th of April if you’re in Australia like me. Though as we know we can feel the energy strongly a few days either side of the peak. This is the partner eclipse to the Libra full moon eclipse that happened towards the end of March a few week backs around the 23rd/24th if you recall. Whilst Libra will return later in the year with more eclipse energy to come, we won’t see eclipse energy in Aries again for the rest of 2024 until it returns at the end of March in 2025.

    Thus sets the scene with another bonus new year energy start if you haven’t felt that yet with all guns are blazing with this energy about new beginnings and fresh starts. Aries kickstarts the zodiac as we know and with the eclipse chapters, Aries points towards our future and destiny astrologically. 

    Energy, life force and self with the nature of the Solar Eclipse

    The solar eclipse will temporarily have the sun, representing our life force and energy, disappear. Eclipses energetically impact people differently, either you may be highly energised perhaps even restless and impatience. On the other hand it can also trigger intense emotions and exhaustion too. Do note this energy remains for the next six months if you aren’t necessarily feeling any changes immediately again this is very personal and depends on each person and their chart.

    With the momentary darkness it’s also symbolic of being cosmically guided to turn within, as with the eclipses some believe it is not about manifesting as traditionally with a new moon but more being aware of the present moment, taking a moment to reflect and pointing our intentions towards the future. This is further amplified by the independent nature of Aries as opposed to Libra in the lunar eclipse last time where I talked about how relationships were more of a thematic.

    Mercury Retrograde and the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse

    As part of the current collective energies, take note we are currently in Mercury Retrograde since the beginning of April until the end around the 25th so take extra care in ensuring clear communications and the well known potential impacts on technology and travel too. Especially with Aries collective energy it can be easy to let fiery energy take over in communications so be mindful of passion, anger, zest and blunt honesty. 

    Chiron and the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse

    Chiron the planet representing the wounded healer will also be taking part of the action, astrologically aligning in the heart of the solar eclipse. Energetically, traditionally Chiron in Aries collectively may bring up the following themes:

    Wound of the self: confidence and being self assured 

    The sun represents the masculine and Aries is ruled by Mars which is also headstrong and masculine in nature; so perhaps anything around the masculine including male figures such as father ones and qualities like taking action, guidance and protection. 

    Chiron Solar Eclipse Journaling Prompts

    Taking all of this into account with the new moon solar eclipse; here are some journal prompts to consider;

    What new insights or paths are being illuminated for you right now in your path of healing? 

    If you are feeling off track, what is being revealed to help you get back on track with your destiny in this lifetime? 

    Have you been stopping into your power by taking actual action in regards to your desires and dreams? If not what’s holding you back from taking action and how could you potentially overcome this?

    In what area of your life, have you been giving power away or leaking power in your life?

    In what way has a dominating energy triggered you into feeling less of your full powerful self? 

    Check in and reflect on your current perspective of your self worth and sense of identity.

    The last time Chiron in Aries was temporarily between April – September 2018 and February 2019, you may want to reflect what was going on for you in terms of the above for further context and check in from then vs now. More Aries new moon eclipse journaling prompts later on in this episode.

    Pisces is also a part of the cosmic forces and it’s presence is highly spiritual reminding us to hold steady with our faith and belief with everything unfolding, that it is helping us to be more aware and grow (even when it doesn’t actually feel like it at this moment in time right now). 

    Channeling the Solar Eclipse energy

    Feeling into my personal perspective and channeling on the current collective energies and April 2024 generally: l I really believe it’s all about tapping into our inner fire: think themes of renewal, resparking the flame, processing anger that may be within ourselves in a healthy and motivating manner. 

    There’s a momentum, energy is moving as opposed to slowing which was really felt heavily at the end of March. With the fire comes the light, there’s been a huge density between the lunar eclipse to now: heaviness, emotions, anxiety; so much more light is trickling in and thus forcing out denseness to emerge and be lifted and cleansed. 

    It doesn’t feel quiet nor calm, I know I said at the beginning going inwards but more feeling an energy. The theme of chaos comes up but it’s more like a lot is going on, embracing all that pops up and navigating with a sense of adventure as opposed to overwhelming destruction.

    Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse Journaling Prompts April 2024

    Rounding out this episode and the journaling questions for the Aries new moon solar eclipse in April 2024 are the following:

    In what ways are you battling yourself? Are you fighting or at war with yourself? If so how can you realign with support? 

    The last time there was a similar Aries eclipse to the current was in April 2005, this may serve as reflection point for you during this time to consider. 

    Where do your current passions in life lie and where have you lost passion in your life? Is it time to let go for a new one or can it be resparked? Where could you be more fired up in life?

    What clarity do you currently have on your purpose and destiny? How can you put this into action moving forward over the next six months? 

    Thinking of you during this solar eclipse and should you need further support and guidance, I invite you to connect with me for either 1:1 coaching or a human design reading, currently there is plenty availability in April! Grateful for you beautiful soul, until next time: love & positivity.

  • 69 – March 2024 Libra Lunar Eclipse

    The astrological air right now is thick and intense! This episode is all about the Libra Lunar Eclipse taking place in March 2024. Phi shares the themes of the lunar eclipse as well as journaling prompts to help you gain greater insight into your shadow, karma and relationships.

    Personal feelings of the Libra Lunar Eclipse

    I’ve just come back from some time in India and Vietnam which I’m processing and whewwwwww we are in the thick of some astrological air aren’t we! It’s all been leading up to here. 

    We are officially in the astrological new year which begins with the first sign of the Zodiac Aries that happened a few days ago March 19th. Personally returning home with this eclipse energy, I’ve been sleeping and napping more than ever. It feels like a big detox and purge feeling more tired and sick than usual. Also a lot of vivid dreams and random downloads during meditation. Feeling more inward, introverted and hermitting than usual. 

    Aries Libra Lunar Eclipse Series

    So what’s going on? We happen to be in the middle of a cycle of Aries-Libra eclipses that started last year in April around the 21st and will end next year at the end of March 2025.

     Last year it was one foot in the old series of Taurus and Scorpio, but this year we are all in on Aries and Libra focusing on the push pull tension of independence, autonomy vs in relationship and connection. 

    Eclipses come in opposing pairs and each pairing happens every 18 years. The last time the Aries and Libra pairing occurred was between 2004 to 2006, so it may be worth reflecting what happened for you then.

     Last year it was one foot in the old series of Taurus and Scorpio, but this year we are all in on Aries and Libra focusing on the push pull tension of independence, autonomy vs in relationship and connection. 

    Eclipses come in opposing pairs and each pairing happens every 18 years. The last time the Aries and Libra pairing occurred was between 2004 to 2006, so it may be worth reflecting what happened for you then.

    Libra Lunar Eclipse Intense

    There’s no denying eclipse season is intense as the energy supercharges the full moon and new moon by tenfold. Remember intense doesn’t mean bad! Bursts of intensity can be helpful and I’m sure that’s something Aries teaches us. 

    Over two weeks so much growth, change and transformation can occur. It all starts on on March 25th with the Full Moon Libra lunar eclipse bringing into play Librian areas of life: relationships, balance. 

    Before the Solar Eclipse in Aries brings new beginnings, the Lunar eclipse can often bring endings and a magnitude of emotions. 

    Feminine Energy and Libra Lunar Eclipse

    The lunar aspect being the moon signals and indicates our inner realm and rules over our emotions, internal motivations and the feminine aspects of who we are. PSA with these feminine energies at times this can involve a female in our lives whether that’s a mother, sister, cousin, friend, boss etc. 

    The eclipse moon is different to the full moon in that it brings out the shadow (the Earth’s shadow falls on the face of the moon) – so what can emerge is more information, insights, revelations as well as resurface shadow aspects that previously have been blocked, hidden or unseen. 

    Simply put dredge up stuff you’ve not been aware of or ignoring really. At this time the veil is also thin between past, present and future, it’s a beautiful time to go more inwards and receive information and downloads such as through meditation or any other practices that help you to go within.

    Libra Lunar Eclipse Theme: Relationships

    In particular this eclipse hones in on relationships (platonic, professional and romantic) with Venus conjunct Saturn. Venus rules Libra and represents relationships. When we introduce Saturn into the realm of relationships this is about discipline and reality checks. 

    Saturn can also cause a slow down or delay forgoing instant gratification and leaning into the more long term, aligned, practical and a test of commitment. 

    When we factor in that this full moon brings in karmic destiny energy it represents letting go of what no longer serves, what we’ve outgrown and what we need to leave behind in order to move forward. People that often enter or exit during these periods can often feel karmic too. This is a clearing of past karma in play. 

    Eclipses are here to cleanse and clear

    Thus prepare yourself for what can be seen as a cosmic cleansing and course corrections. This is against the backdrop of Pisces planetary positions which can be dreamy, moody but ultimately spiritual. Not only that off the back of Pisces season, a time that teaches us about letting go and surrender, trusting in higher frequencies meant for us. 

    March 2024 Lunar Eclipse Journaling Prompts

    Who are the most important relationships in your life?

    What relationships are you holding onto that no longer serve you and have run their course? Where are you stuck in those relationships out of guilt, obligation, fear or comfort? 

    Are there any current dynamics at play in relationships that don’t serve you? Any patterns or repetitions you can see emerging? Examples being people pleasing, avoidance, triggers, lack of boundaries, holding back the truth, seeking validation and approval 

    Do you feel that your current relationships are fair and balanced?

    Are you seeing relationships for what they are or are you perhaps blinded by idealisation or ignorance?

    What has been holding you back in relationships? 

    What don’t you like about the way you behave in relationships (the shadow aspect of self)?

    What role does feminine energy play in your relationships?

    Where in your relationships perhaps healing and forgiveness needs to take place? 

    Which relationships in your life are cultivating greater spiritual growth and evolution for you?

    What situations call for more harmony? 

    Is there any person that comes to mind repeatedly during this time period which may be a sign of unresolved karma?

    Reflect back to the solar eclipse of October 14th 2023 last year as the starting point to this full moon, when the new moon was in Libra. Things maybe circling back or coming to a full circle moment here. The prelude to that was when the whole eclipse series began July 2023. Thus the final journaling prompt, how have your relationships changed since mid October last year?

    Eclipse timelines

    Eclipses have this funny way of speeding up and changing timelines, it can feel as though life has sudden, unexpected, rapid and abrupt changes that unfold with great speed or momentum out of nowhere. Given eclipses have such great energy and power, the universe can really force us to change and move if we have been stuck, stagnant or caught in old cycles, the pressure is turned up. 

    What to do during the 2024 March Libra Lunar Eclipse

    Lunar eclipse season is a time to lay low and lather on self care: slowing down, grounding, resting, naps, salt water baths, being gentler, reflection, meditation and journaling can be helpful. Unexpected things can pop up so create more space in your calendar and schedule in longer time than usual to complete big projects. Letting go practices such as letter writing, burning what no longer serves you, decluttering, cleansing spaces can be beneficial. 

    Wishing you a powerful release with this eclipse season beautiful soul, until next time.

    Love & Positivity.

  • 63 – Aquarius Super New Moon 2024

    This episode is all about the Aquarius Super New Moon taking place February 2024 this week ushering in the Year of the Dragon. Phi shares updates on the energetic themes at play which are intense (planetary pile up in Aquarius) and shares soothing affirmations and journaling prompts to tap into the energy of the Aquarius Super New Moon too.

    Episode Introduction - Aquarius Super New Moon February 2024

    Hello beautiful soul,

    Well well well we are in for a cosmic ride! Last week I spoke about the upcoming Lunar New Year and just before it to end the week is the Aquarius New Moon that precedes it. The 9th in the northern hemisphere and 10th in the southern if you’re in Australia like me. It’s not just any new moon, it happens to be a super new moon. As it’s a new moon it’s not visible in the sky, so think of this as a blank canvas and reset.

    Astrologically there’s a lot going on and I always like to channel and distill the important parts that I think are relevant to you listening to this podcast. I won’t beat around the bush by saying off the bat this isn’t a grounding, nourish new moon this is an electric charged, potent super new moon pushing into the new out of your comfort zone. After all it’s an Aquarius Super New Moon bringing in the year of the Dragon for 2024.

    It really is all about Aquarius with this energy, you’ve got a planetary pile up; the sun, moon here, Pluto, mercury with Venus and and Mars to join too.

    An energetic reset and a whole lotta energies!

    This super new moon you can think of an energetic reset as I’ve said earlier some deem it the true new year. The super new moon aspect think of it just amplifying and magnifying the energies so things feel more intense. Your emotions feel more intense. Your thoughts feel more intense.

    More over with this super new moon what I’m feeling into is funky, and yes uncomfortable and unpredictable. There’s a feeling of restlessness in the air. A sprinkle of existentialism. 

    This is set in motion for a first in our lifetime event when Mercury (the planet of communication) enters Aquarius and aligns with Pluto (the truth teller). In addition to that we have the new moon in a challenging position squaring Uranus (the unexpected) in the sign of Taurus (fixed aspects, stubborn nature).

    Expect shakes up. Truths to come up. There’s tension. There’s pressure. Things from the past re-emerge once again (to be cleared). It’s this feeling and sensation of wanting to break free and we are being challenged to let go, surrender and move forward with courage and authenticity.

    Communication and Confrontation with this Aquarius Super New Moon February 2024

    With this influence we may need to say and speak up what we don’t often want to, confronting things to say out loud (Aquarius and Mercury together are all about communication, ideologies).

    Aquarians are known to have a tough exterior and it feels like with all these planetary placements, it’s been astrological organised to have a cracking open experience and sensation which can be painful at first but ultimately for the best to open us up, unravelling deeper layers of ourselves, to shed what no longer serves us.

    This is about confronting ourselves and being willing to go beneath the surface, into our psyche and subconscious. In this we can find the underlying cause, the root of the problem which is the medicine and the healing. If you know of Chiron (the wounded healer) is inching closer towards the North Node (fate and destiny) which will culminate in April so for now we are getting a taster of intense confronting healing taking place (can’t hide with the astrological energies at play). 

    There is tension here because the moon rules our inner world, our emotions yet it’s in Aquarius known to be more emotionally detached and the archetype of the thinker.

    Astrology and Human Design Align: Revolution

    It’s not all dark and heavy, unexpected things aren’t always negative in nature though that’s where our mind jumps too it can also be positive. It’s really about the emergence of astrology aligning with human design: the theme of this new moon is revolution, think of it as your rebirth. Through the means of Aquarius which is going introspective, doing the thought work. 

    Aquarius: Head vs Heart

    When the strong emotions come up from surprises and the past, the Aquarian energy in the air asks to bring objectivity into it – noticing where is there a strong emotional charge, using the mind to get curious and investigate further. A meeting of the heart and the mind. Finding the right balance (as is where the name Aquarius stems from the latin meaning of water-carrier and the symbolism of the water-bearer). 

    An exercise that may help you during this Aquarius super new moon is when you’re making decisions imagine scales or weights a balance. On one side is your heart and the other your head. If you’re really heady into something, imagine counterbalancing with what your heart is saying and vice versa if it feels really heart driven also give your mind and opportunity to offer some thoughts this will give you a holistic perspective on a situation.

    Aquarius Positivity

    This new moon is going to help us be less rigid and more flexible with everything that may arise. Rolling with the punches. Aquarius plays the long term game, so whilst it feels tough and sticky now, it’s ultimately benefiting for your future and what’s to come. There’s optimism and hope within it (as we known Aquarius is about the collective, for the people, social justice, equality).

    Aquarius Super New Moon February 2024 Affirmations

    I’m really being called to share some soothing affirmations which can help during this period and I’ll phrase them as I am speaking to you but of course when you recite out loud or in your mind you’ll say “I”.

    You are capable of handling whatever comes your way.

    You are safe and supported even in times of uncertainty.

    You are resilient, every challenge makes you stronger.

    You are worthy of love, compassion and kindness always and especially during tough times. You are worthy of your own love, compassion and kindness that you also offer to others.

    You have the power to find moments of peace, calm and joy despite chaos and shake ups.

    Aquarius Super New Moon February 2024 Journaling Prompts

    Journaling questions to close out this episode to make the most of the super new moon energy;

    Has anything surprising or unexpected come to the surface this week for you? If so is there a general theme that emerges? How can going deeper on this theme help you move forward in 2024?

    With any challenges or obstacles that have arisen so far, what would happen if you now come up with 3 different approaches you haven’t had before

    1: Out of the box thinking

    2: Creativity led

    3: Unconventional 

    Reflect from the 1st of January until now, is there anything that has happened or come up that you’d like to set the intention to let go of, clear and start afresh?

    If you have set any intentions from the 1st of January do they still feel in alignment at this point of time? Have those intentions been acted upon and how are you tracking?

    What seeds and intentions do you want to set up for the year ahead at this moment in time taking advantage of the super new moon and lunar dragon energy too?

    When was the last time in your life you experienced something unexpectedly? What happened, how did you feel, how did you navigate it and what was the end result?

    Right now in your life where do you need a shake up or revolution and how can you go about this?

    What would be really uncomfortable to talk about in your life right now? Why is that so? What insights does this give you about yourself and where you are in your life right now?

    What support systems or resources can you lean on during times of uncertainty or change?

    To close out this episode, give those journal prompts a good contemplation, it’s not really about the answer but the thought process that goes behind what automatically is being prompted within you. In true Aquarian nature, yes use your mind but don’t forget to let your body feel all that is coming up and release these feelings with compassion. 

    Until next time beautiful soul, love and positivity.

  • Why the changes in your sleep and energy?

    The Energetic Shift

    Is it just me or are you having sudden changes to your sleep patterns and your energy?

    You’re not crazy.

    You’re not weird.

    There’s an energetic shift happening and there’s a lot going on.

    The cosmic tea and details

    What is going on? The cosmic tea and details.

    Heightened celestial activity with the human design new year coming up, Pluto’s big shift from Capricorn into Aquarius from 2024-2044 and solar flares 🌞

    If you’re sensitive to energy, intuitive you may have felt this either being very buzzy, wired and plugged in 🔌 or exhausted and depleted — lots of spiritual soul activities going on.

    Human Design New Year: January 22 (at the time of posting in the final energies of limitations, acceptance letting go more on that in my podcast 🎧 Grow Through It Podcast with Phi Dang Episode 58).

    Let’s talk about Pluto. This tiny planet packs a punch and is going to greatly influence the next 20 years of what we see unfolding collectively by making a once-in-a-lifetime transition into the sign of Aquarius from Capricorn on January 20th. This is a new collective chapter that will unfold leading to great shifts for everyone on a societal level and personally.

    Pluto is the planet of destruction, rebirth and mystery ruled by the Underworld.

    Aquarius rules justice, equality, social connections, community, humanity, innovation, technology, science and independence.

    Solar flares are huge bursts of energy from the sun supercharged with magnetic energy and radiation. They signal an ascension process shifting from your physical body to your light body. Expect intuitive downloads as well as disturbances to sleep and physical symptoms.

    More on that in Episode 59 of my podcast which is a midway January 2024 energy update.

  • Happy Human Design New Year!

    Happy Human Design New Year!

    Fantasy.

    Imagination.

    Contraction.

    Inspired action.

    Feel it.

    What is the energy?

    The way human design sees the new year is a whole new cycle of experience.

    Human Design New Year for many is very much about intentions over resolutions or goals because the majority of the population have an open heart, which is the centre for motivation and willpower.

    When it’s open you have inconsistent access to your own motivation and willpower therefore if you do happen to have an open heart, please don’t beat yourself, get annoyed and frustrated when you seemingly seem so motivated one minute and the the next not, that’s how you are designed and built to be in human design.

    From my experience doing hundreds of reasons, it is about unlearning the societal expectation to always be working towards something and instead getting you to shift into the being. We all have some seasons, move and flow with your energy instead of blocking it.

    The human design energy itself is fantasy, imagination, possibilities, contraction, inspired action.

    This is the week to dream big but also to come up with a plan to make it happen — big dreams, grounded in reality.

    There are several ways to tap into this energy mainly imagination and what I have channeled sensuality 👀

  • 59: January 2024 Energy Update – Solar Flares and Pluto in Aquarius

    In this January 2024 Energy Update podcast, we dive into the cosmic currents shaping our world. Join Phi as she explores the heightened celestial activity, with a special focus on solar flares and how that can spiritually influence those sensitive to energy. Discover the profound implications of Pluto’s shift from Capricorn into Aquarius.

    January 2024 Energy Update Synopsis

    Gain insights into how these astrological events of solar flares and Pluto’s transit into Aquarius from Capricorn impact our personal and collective energies, as well as find guidance on navigating this dynamic cosmic landscape. 

    January 2024 Energy Introduction

    Hi Beautiful Soul,

    This week in the cosmos, the collective there is so much energetic activity! Radical changes are about. If you’re feeling different and you don’t quite know what is is, I’m here to reassure you that you’re not crazy, you’re not broken and something isn’t wrong. It’s the collective energy and shifts taking place right now as I’m speaking mid January 2024.

    If you’re like me you’ve noticed a shift and change in your personal energy and disturbances in your sleep, I noticed that from the beginning of last week on the 8th of January. Maybe you feel really buzzed, wired and plugged in so to speak or exhausted, grouchy, even a big moody. Maybe you’re oscillating between the two states! 

    Right now there’s a lot happening that I feel called to explore and share with you listening. We’ve got the backdrop of the last few episodes culminating to the Human Design New Year coming up. The two other factors right now I want to discuss is the pivotal shift of Pluto changing signs from Capricorn to Aquarius, which takes place this year in 2024 until 2044. What’s also come through and something I never really paid attention to as much until now, which is the influence of the Sun and solar flare activity on our energy.

    What Pluto represents spiritually astrologically

    Let’s start with Pluto. This tiny planet packs a punch and is going to greatly influence the next 20 years of what we see unfolding collectively by making a once-in-a-lifetime transition into the sign of Aquarius from Capricorn on January 20th. This is a new collective chapter that will unfold leading to great shifts for everyone on a societal level and personally.

    I like to think of Pluto as the dark horse of the planets. It’s ruled by Hades and the Underworld (throwback to the Hercules movie!). It’s mysterious. Pluto likes to move slowly and subtly, the changes creep in and build up. Pluto is on the outer edge of the solar system, and likes to take its time staying in a sign anywhere between 12 to 30 years. Ultimately it takes 248 years to move through the whole zodiac! It’s very much seen as a generational influence because of this. 

    On a personal level Pluto is the planet of shadow work, the hidden, the repressed, the unseen – follow it’s timing imagine knowing someone for 1 year vs 20 years… you really get to know someone. Things will emerge you never knew over time. Pluto is transformation, the phoenix, pain into power, composting negativity and gunk into goodness.

    Pluto in Capricorn Wrap Up Summary

    Since 2008 Pluto has been in Capricorn entering our collective era with the global recession. The chapter of Pluto in Capricorn was about the tension of conformity and tradition as well as career, we’ve seen over the last 15 years a shift on how we define success and achievement especially off the back of the pandemic. It led to new career orientated changes, the recession created new start ups such as Uber and Airbnb with a greater focus on social media (creating even more career choices and paths).

    Now Pluto is moving into Aquarius. We had a sneak peak of this in 2023 when Pluto was temporarily in Aquarius from March to June 2023 last year. This first movement is a dip again because Pluto will temporarily go back into Capricorn around September before returning and staying in Aquarius from mid November 2024 until 2044.

    What Pluto in Aquarius means spiritually astrologically

    Aquarius rules justice, equality, social connections, community, humanity, innovation, technology, science and independence. So what can we expect? Collective themes of freedom, revolution, social activism as well as major scientific, medical, and technological discoveries. There will be a focus on inequality, injustices leading to power shifts, systematic and structural changes for independence, equality and emancipation. The spirit of rebellion and revolution.

    What happened last time Pluto was in Aquarius?

    Historically, the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was from 1778 to 1798 which historically saw the people movement. People over systems. We saw royalty and monarchs fall such as fall of Marie Antoinette and the last king of France Louis XVI during the French revolution. 

    What also happened was the declaration of independence and the introduction of the American flag and this is interesting with the American elections taking place this year. Cyclical yes! No doubt America as we know it will be different by the end of this era. 

    It was the beginning of the industrial revolution and establishment of the stock exchange in Britain (again look at what’s started to emerge the era of the people’s own money system and power shift from financial institutions with the creation of cryptocurrency). 

    The Pluto in Aquarius chapter also had the starting of movements for women’s rights in the French Revolution with playwright activist Olympe due Gouges (O lamp de gouuuuj) writing the Declaration of the Rights of Woman and Female Citizen, which did not come to fruition as hoped and she was executed for doing so. Captain Cook also discovered Australia and New Zealand. A huge authority figure also taken down and killed in Hawaii.

    Pluto into Aquarius and Technology

    So what can we expect in the modern day for Pluto’s shift from Capricorn into Aquarius? 

    Free thinking, more voices emerging because technology has allowed everyone to have a voice. So many platforms available now whether it’s creating your own website, social media, live streaming, podcasting — for sure we will see more opinions and thought leaders emerging. Whilst it’s not so much about the monarchy now, there’s a shift of power from the idealised such as celebrities and blurring of that to more influencers, and grassroots community leaders, the people’s people. 

    The role of technology is sure to expand with the kick off AI. Technology helping bring us more together, online communities and even in person should AI see more automation and less hands on human work. Amongst spiritual circles we are in the Age of Aquarius which ushers in the return and rising of the divine feminine (again coinciding historically with feminine movements as previously stated).

    How Pluto in Aquarius will affect you

    How will this personally affect you? If you do deeper human design readings with me look at your rebirth section. Astrologically look at your natal chart and see where you have Aquarius placements as well as Scorpio because Scorpio is ruled by Pluto. 

    In relation to the collective, Pluto may excavate and bring to light things to do with social connections, community, care for the collective in terms of themes such as justice, equality and fairness. 

    What about your inner rebel, your voice, your influence? How do you use technology? How can you get involved in your community? What community issues do you care about? What’s your relationship to your feminine energy?

     Are you due a feminine energy rebirth and rising as have so many women after being in our masculine for so long whether it’s to be successful in our careers, thinking we have to force and hustle our way into what we want or protecting ourselves? The balance between masculine and feminine, being interconnected yet independent too.

    What is the spiritual meaning of solar flares?

    Whewww so we’ve talked Pluto now let’s talk about solar flares and solar storms in terms of spirituality. They are of note because they are to do with the Sun. Spiritually the sun rules our day to day, how we see ourselves, our ego, our self esteem and our confidence. The impact of the sun is undeniable also to our moods such as seasonal depression from the lack of sun and perhaps constant rain or shift from Summer to Winter. Mystical Yogi Saghuru talks about solar flares and activity being linked to consciousness.

    I’m not a scientist by any means but from my research and understanding: Solar flares are sudden charged bright bursts of energy and radiation coming from the Sun. That energy comes primarily from the Sun’s magnetic fields and is released (a build up of magnetic energy). 

    January 2024 and solar flare activity

    I came to awareness of them because at the beginning of last week my sleep patterns randomly and suddenly changed. I couldn’t sleep. I noticed I was having more visions than usual. That’s when I found out around that time was strong solar storm and flare activity classed X (the strongest). It actually caused a temporary but strong radio blackout across parts of South America, Central America and the Pacific Ocean, according to the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Centre. Not only that 2024 started with the biggest flare up in 6 years!

    Just like how the moon can impact us, you may or may not feel the impacts of solar activity.

    2024 2025 Solar Flare Spiritual

    2024 and 2025 are set to be the maximum of the latest cycle which is the 25th which started in December 2019 coinciding with the beginning of the pandemic. Overall this is the most in 20 years of sun activity. 

    According to Russian scientist A.L. Tchijevsky, 80% of the most significant human events occurred during a 5 year period surrounding the peak of solar activity. 

    One can look to the Carrington Effect which took place on September 2, 1859 where history’s greatest solar storm caused havoc to technology, communication systems going haywire and strange displays of the aurora in tropical places. Researchers have estimated that a Carrington-class event today would result in between $0.6 and $2.6 trillion in damages to the U.S. alone, according to NASA spaceflight.

    Spirituality and Solar Flare Impacts

    Spiritually speaking solar flares and activity are an ascension process as they say. It spiritually shifts from your physical body to your light body – think in terms of your energy body, higher dimensions, astral body, expansion outside your physical energy field, connection point of spirituality, chakra energy centred — famous symbol of the merkaba 3D 8 pointed star mer light ka spirit ba body ancient sacred geometry, chariot of light.

    Receiving more light, higher levels of consciousness, illuminating what needs to come to the surface even old previous things you dealt with and thought were resolved will resurface. 

    Feeling the impacts? It doesn’t come as a surprise, even ancient civilisations like the Aztecs and Mayans tracked the sun. Our bodies have an electrical charge present in every cell through ions.

    How to remedy solar flare symptoms

    So what to do if you are feeling the impacts of solar flares?

    Prioritise yourself. Focus on y our energy, what is nourishing, feeding and giving you energy vs what is depleting it. It’s likely temporary and if it lingers, feels intense unbearable and affects you on a day to day level seek the help of a professional medical practitioner. 

    Meditation is a great way to tap into your energy and receive insights.

    Salt is great to cleanse and soothe, think a bath with lots of magnesium or a swim in the ocean if possible.

    Minimal caffeine and alcohol which can already make us feel more wired and anxious.

    Grounding time in nature, reduce technology and screens. I’m getting visuals of child’s pose with your third eye to the ground or even the pose where you are lying face down hands to your sides.

    It’s also been suggested solar storms impact our pineal gland (third eye) which is responsible for melatonin that regulates our inner body clock through circadian rhythms. It may help to sync up with the sun, waking up with natural light, sleeping as it gets dark. 

    Solar Flare Soothing Meditation

    I’ll end this podcast with a meditation I channelled if you’re feeling the impacts of solar flares but it’s also nice as an activation to open up your intuition too.

    Find a comfortable position in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Relax your body either sitting up or lying down. Have your palms faced up and close your eyes.

    Take a few deep breaths in and out to center your body.

    Imagine, sense, feel of perceive a golden sphere of light above your head, radiant and glowing with a warm and comforting energy. It’s almost like honey.

    Visualise this light sending out a golden wave, washing all over your your body and flushing out any physical or mental ailments or disturbances. Imagine the golden light removing any heavy dense energy, the visual that I’m getting is it’s like removing lint from the dryer or your clothes. You may also feel called to run your hands all over your body in a sweeping motion again imagining yourself being cleansed.

    Come to a still point and then visualise, sense, feel or perceive this beautiful golden light now enveloping your entire body in a cocoon of warmth and tranquility. Feel the soothing energy as it flows down through the crown of your head, gradually permeating every cell, every muscle, and every organ in your body.

    As the golden light continues to flow down, direct your focus to the area of your pineal gland, your third eye located in the center of your forehead, just above and between your eyebrows. Imagine this golden light specifically targeting and activating your third eye.

    Envision the golden light swirling around your third eye, clearing any blockages or imbalances. As the light works its magic, sense a gentle expansion and opening in this area. Feel a heightened awareness and connection to your inner self.

    This energy starts to build and expand beyond your third eye, beyond your physical body creating a gold shield of protection around you. Visualize this shield acting as a buffer, absorbing and transforming any intense energies from the solar flares and collective energy into positive, harmonious, healing energy.

    With each breath, allow the golden light to amplify within you and around you, creating a powerful and nurturing aura. Feel the support of this golden energy as it protects you.

    Take a moment to bask in the warmth and serenity of the golden light surrounding you. Know that you are connected to the universal energy, and you are protected and supported.

    When you’re ready, slowly bring your awareness back to the present moment. Wiggle your fingers and toes, and gently open your eyes. 

    Carry the sense of golden light with you throughout your day, knowing that you can return to this meditation whenever you need to balance and harmonise your energy.

    May you be surrounded by the healing and protective energy of the golden light.

    As always here to support you and guide if you feel the call. I have an exciting in person offering launching tomorrow on Friday the 19th of January which I cannot wait to share with you! I also offer 1:1 coaching and human design readings so if you’re interested, get in touch and let’s chat! 

    Until next time, love & positivity.

  • 57: 111 Portal January 2024 Capricorn New Moon

    Unlock and understand the mysteries and energetic significance of the 111 portal this year in January 2024 which also happens to fall on the Capricorn New Moon. This 111 portal isn’t like other years and Phi reveals why. She also shares practical exercises such as journaling and custom affirmations in addition to a channeled meditation to make the most of the 111 portal in 2024.

    Summary of the 111 Portal in January 2024v and the Capricorn New Moon

    The significance of the number 111, a triple-digit sequence that is believed to hold powerful vibrations and cosmic alignments. We’ll explore how this unique portal of 111 opens up a powerful gateway into insight, intuition and alignment.

    The 111 portal happens multiple times throughout the year but this one is very special and Phi will reveal exactly why on this episode in addition to talking more about the astrological themes of Capricorn for 2024’s first new moon. Phi also speaks about this week being the third week of the Human Design New Year and what that entails.

    The 111 Portal Introduction

    Hi Beautiful Soul,

    How have you been taking to 2024? This episode continues the conversation from last week about now being in the third stage of energy towards the human design new year on the 20th of January which will be at the end of this episode, but the forefront for this week? The release date of this episode for the 111 portal and the Capricorn New Moon. 

    Why the 111 portal is more special this year in January 2024?

    This year’s 111 portal is more potent than usual because in terms of numerology the date 11/1/2024 if you add 1+1+1+2+0+2+4 = 11 which is a master number and of course it falls on the Capricorn New Moon. 11 is known as the master intuitive number. 11 is associated with intuition, enlightenment, alignment and limitlessness. 

    With portals it may happen on the day but the energy can be felt days before and after. Perhaps pay attention if you’re seeing 1’s, 11’s and 111’s as a sign for a new beginning and a call for alignment.

    Channelled message and guidance for the 111 portal in January 2024

    It’s the first manifestation day of 2024 and the year but it won’t be the only one. It’s the opening. I had a strong intuitive message to share with everyone that it’s okay if you don’t know what you want yet exactly or what you want to manifest. Don’t place unnecessary additional pressure and stress on yourself. If anything you can simply in a way ‘make a wish’ it could be as simple as to experience more joy in 2024 or to have a better year than last.

    If anything the intuitive guidance I am receiving for the 111 portal is it’s actually more of a portal to receive downloads and insights for the year ahead. Create stillness and silence to receive information that is ready to be downloaded to you: it may feel like a hunch, hearing the same message, a feeling — be open to what the message may mean. 

    Given this here are my top activities and suggestions to make the most of the 111 portal.

    Tapping into your intuition on the 111 portal

    Tap into your intuition there are several ways this comes to mind including:

    • Automatic writing, setting a timer and putting pen to paper to see what emerges. 
    • Meditation for at least 11 minutes (might as well play on the 111!) 

    Manifesting with the 111 Portal through affirmations

    Approach manifestations and intentions through the voice of 11 energy which is … “I am”

    Instead of writing in the future tense that I would like to be and the qualities you would embody… write it as if you are already now. I am… for example instead of I would like to be more abundant, you would write “I am abundant,” “I am building the life of my dreams,” “I am making my dreams happen.” Again perhaps try to write at least 11 ‘I am’ affirmations. 

    Another way you could write this out I’m being told is starting your affirmations with “I have faith…”

    “I have faith I will be abundant this year”

    “I have faith things are going to work out for me in 2024”

    New beginnings with the 111 portal

    Start something new, plant the seed. That idea that has been floating inside your head for so long, perhaps today with the 111 portal you can do something about it. Wanting to start a business? Give yourself an hour to brainstorm, maybe you won’t know exactly what it is but you’re taking inspired action and showing the universe: hey I want to start something new. Tap into the energy and emotions that arise when you feel into starting fresh in certain areas of your life.

    Putting yourself first with the 111 portal

    Given the energetics of new beginnings, the first: this is the day to put yourself first. Indulge in self care. Really tune into what you want. What does alignment look like and feel like for you?

    111 Portal Journaling Questions

    Connect with your inner guidance with these 11 journaling questions:

    • What does a “new beginning” mean and look like for you at this moment in time?
    •  
    • What aspects of your life are currently in alignment with your true self? What is not?
    •  
    • What adjustments can you make to bring your thoughts, actions and beliefs into greater alignment?
    •  
    • Reflect on moments in your life when you felt truly aligned recently.
    •  
    • What are your intentions for the future? What do you want to manifest this month, over the year and beyond?
    •  
    • How well are you listening to your inner guidance, truth and intuition?
    •  
    • How can you align your thoughts and actions with your intentions on the 111 portal?
    •  
    • As you open the door to new beginnings, what can you be grateful for on your journey to new beginnings?
    •  
    • Reflect on the number 1, 11, 111 and 1111 in your life. What significance does it hold for you. What do these numbers personally mean to you? 
    •  
    • If your intuition could speak out loud to you right now, what would it say?
    •  
    • Where do you need to put yourself more first in your life?

    Capricorn New Moon January 2024

    What’s interesting about the Capricorn New Moon is it’s the first new moon for 2024 and this year will also end with a Capricorn new moon on December 30, so astrologically speaking this is a new moon asking you to think about long term in the sense what are you planting at the beginning of this year to fruition at the end. 

    Setting intentions now that build momentum to the end of the year. The check in point will be when June in the Northern Hemisphere coinciding with the Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year or in the Southern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice – the shortest day of the year.

    Capricorn New Moon January 2024 Mantra

    Astrologically speaking this day also marks a turning point where all the majority of planets are moving forward and not in retrograde which means less miscommunication, challenges and curveballs. However the irony being Capricorn energy isn’t necessarily fast moving: it’s a planner, it plays the long term gain. 

    So I think the Capricorn Mantra for this New Moon is Turn Inwards, Slow Down in Order to Speed Up. Set up the foundations right so when you feel into your internal rhythm it’s time to get moving, you can and you will with ease because the foundations are set up.

    Capricorn Structure and Foundation

    Capricorn is an Earth sign so again it’s about being grounded, setting up strong foundations and roots. This is about setting things up that are actionable. Capricorn is a sign of structure so it’s worth thinking about what systems, support, habits, discipline and accountability do you need to put in place to bring your manifestations into reality? 

    Capricorn New Moon Secret

    Now as I’ve been saying energetically for some it may still not feel quite right to be able to fully land your intentions and manifestations, my suggestion to take advantage of the Capricorn New Moon is to get back into habits and routines that set you up for success such as perhaps your morning routine, or after work, evening too. What practices nourish your soul and revitalise you? Things you can do for yourself that give you energy and life force, not forcing yourself to do things that take away from that. What preparations can you start now for the year ahead in 2024?

    For example if you’ve been following my Instagram stories you’ll know this year I have a greater focus on my health and wellbeing, because I am guilty of neglecting it in favour of work. I know that it would be a huge stretch for me to run and exercise every single day so I am personally making myself the promise to attempt daily walks, or for the most part 5 days a week as well as 3 days of exercise. That’s from my personal perspective is achievable and a bit of a stretch at the same time.

    Capricorn Structure and Foundation

    Capricorn is an Earth sign so again it’s about being grounded, setting up strong foundations and roots. This is about setting things up that are actionable. Capricorn is a sign of structure so it’s worth thinking about what systems, support, habits, discipline and accountability do you need to put in place to bring your manifestations into reality? 

    Capricorn Energy

    Capricorn energy for you at this time may be shifting into the energy of being grounded, centered, clear and ready to receive intuitive downloads and setting the intention you are desiring to energetically start your year. 

    Distilled further to another beginning step is to pick a focus – Capricorn is ruled by Saturn so that is all about discipline and commitment. 

    Capricorn Career

    Capricorn is also astrologically traditionally associated with career, so this is a great time to connect to your work, your life’s purpose and what you want for your work this year?

    Given the flavours of the 111 portal this is asking you the questions: do you feel aligned in the work that you do and if not how can you bring more alignment to it? Are you receiving any insights and nudges as to what to do with your career? How do you want to feel when you are working?

    If you’re needing support and guidance, I do foundational human design readings which speak to your overarching soul purpose and through 1:1 coaching we can go even further into the purpose path which speaks to your soul radiance and evolution, how your soul purpose plays out and your life’s work so if you’re interested get in touch!

    Capricorn Masculine/Feminine Energy

    Continuing my predictions in the last podcast about the interplay of masculine and feminine energy being prevalent this year, Capricorn rules father figures and the masculine. Just a side note  for awareness and consideration if that’s relevant for you… tying it all together with the themes above what emerges is responsibilities and your relationship to your responsibilities.

    Human Design New Year: Mystery

    Stage 3 before the human design new year: Mystery, Inner Truth and Downloads.

    To recap the human design stages towards the new year, the first stage was exploring tension and resistance, the second stage last week and first half of this week ambition and drive, this back half aligns with the 111 portal for downloads! That of inner truth and downloads.

    In this stage it’s delving into the mysteries and unknown. Asking questions. Dreaming. Wanting answers. This is an ideal time like with the 111 portal and overarching message: set the intention and be open to receiving insights and downloads such as through intentional meditation. Human design posits in order to receiving this the potential is in silence. 

    The silence allows for you to tune into your own internal guidance and receive that from outside of you in the universe. To hear your inner voice. To hear your inner truth. To internally to your inner experiences. To be open to receiving inspiration. This is the energy of the mystical and the magical. To ponder and muse on what your inner ‘truth’ is right now and for 2024. To have the mindset of curiosity and wonder with the patience to receive too. This energy goes deep too, so it’s about getting beneath the surface of your intentions in 2024. The Why.

    Human Design Intuition Insight Meditation

    I’m now going to share with you a channeled meditation to help you tap into this energy of mystery, insight and divine downloads.

    Begin by finding a comfortable and quiet space where you won’t be disturbed. Sit or lie down in a relaxed position, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.

    As you settle into this moment, bring your awareness to your mind and all the thoughts rushing around. It’s okay. This is your mind self. We want to give permission for your mental self to step to the side and allow for your true self. Your authentic self. Set the intention to connect to your true self.

    Take a few more deep breaths, allowing any tension or distractions to dissolve with each exhale. Imagine a door within your being, a door that leads to the vast universe of intuitive insights waiting to be discovered.

    Visualise this internal door before you. What does the door like like?

    As you approach the door, feel a sense of anticipation and excitement. This door is a gateway to the universal intelligence that is always available to guide you. With each breath, allow yourself to release any doubts or resistance, trusting in the process of opening up to your innate wisdom, your intuition.   

    Place your hand on the doorknob and turn it gently. As the door creaks open, feel a rush of energy, a warm and inviting light pouring through the opening. Step through the doorway into a space of infinite possibilities.

    You find yourself in a serene garden, surrounded by vibrant colors, fragrant flowers, and the gentle rustling of leaves. This is the garden of your intuition, a sacred space where the universe communicates with you.

    Take a moment to explore this garden, sensing the energy that emanates from the plants, the earth beneath your feet, and the air around you. Feel the interconnectedness of all things, and know that you are an integral part of this web of existence.

    As you walk through the garden, allow your mind to quieten, releasing any thoughts that may cloud your intuition. Imagine a pool of still water at the center of the garden, reflecting the wisdom of the universe.

    Sit by the edge of the pool and gaze into its depths. With each breath, let go of the need for answers or solutions. Instead, open your heart and mind to receive insights from the universal intelligence. Embody the essence of surrendering and being open to the unknown. 

    Declare and say to your self:

    I surrender to the divine mystery of life and the universe.

    I am ready to receive divine inspiration and downloads.

    I open the door to receiving all that I need to hear, know, see and perceive. 

    As you do this, notice any images, feelings, or subtle nudges that arise within you. Trust the process, knowing that the universe is speaking to you in the language of intuition.

    Take your time in this tranquil space, absorbing the wisdom that flows to you. When you feel ready, express gratitude for the insights received and slowly make your way back to the doorway.

    As you step back through the door, bring the wisdom of the universe with you, carrying it into your daily life. Remember that the key to unlocking intuitive insights lies within, and you can access this internal door whenever you need guidance.

    Take a few deep breaths, feeling the ground beneath you and the awareness within. When you’re ready, gently open your eyes, carrying the essence of intuition, insight and universal intelligence into your awakened state.

    Mmmm what an experience that was going within, how are you feeling beautiful soul? Take a moment of pause to integrate the experience that you just had. I highly suggest journaling and taking note of what you’ve taken out of today’s episode and the meditation we just did.

    Chat to you next week beautiful soul, have a great week ahead. Love & Positivity.

  • 41 – Sagittarius Full Moon in June 2023

    This episode is all about the Sagittarius Full Moon in June 2023. Learn more about the energies and what to expect during the Sagittarius Full Moon. There are also journaling prompts for the Sagittarius Full Moon in June 2023.

    Featured Resources on the episode

    Sagittarius Full Moon June 2023

    Hello beautiful soul and I cannot believe it’s June 2023. At the end of this month on the 23rd my book The Great Unlearning: Awakening to Living an Aligned and Authentic Life will be released globally. It feels quite surreal, I still remember coming up with the concept and it will soon be in your hands!

    This weekend we have the Sagittarius full moon. This will fall over the weekend on Saturday June 3rd or Sunday 4th June 2023 depending where you are. If you’re based in Australia like me, this falls on Sunday afternoon. Full moons are all about illumination and letting go. You may find more clarity with insights and revelations that trickle in to your world during this time. Depending on your personal chart details you may find this new moon energising or exhausting. 

    What are you ready to let go of and release under this upcoming full moon?

    Who is most impacted under the Sagittarius Full Moon in June 2023

    Sagittarius is a mutable sign which falls under the category of being flexible, adaptable and accordingly fellow signs Pisces, Gemini and Virgo are more likely to feel this full moon. However there are other energetic influences at play like Mars and Uranus to name a few amongst many that will also have an impact.

    Remember it’s no one size fits all in astrology or human design it’s too simplistic to know your energy based on one layer such as your sun sign or type — it’s the bigger picture on how it all comes together. If you’re looking for support here I do offer human design readings and for 1:1 clients depending on your container I offer weekly guidance personalised to you! More on that in the show notes or DM me for information on Instagram. 

    Sagittarius energy and archetype

    Full Moons can be emotional and uncomfortable times with releasing what no longer serves us but this one will have some optimism with Sagittarius. Sagittarius is known for being the great wanderer and traveler, the teacher and philosopher, the student of life, the independent truth seeker which is half human, half horse. 

    This Sagittarius full moon is here as your teacher to impart wisdom on you, and it would be wise to take notes (journaling) of what is revealed to you in this lead up to the full moon and the three days after. Whilst you’re at it, you may like to reflect on what your personal philosophy is right now and who are your greatest teachers?

    Sagittarius: The Bigger Picture

    Fun fact for you, full moons will always take place when the moon is in the opposite zodiac sign from the sun. At times due to this the full moon can bring up experiences and feelings of conflict internally and externally. For the Sagittarius full moon this is in Gemini season. 

    Gemini’s are known to be details and fact orientated, whereas this Sagittarius full moon will shed light on the big picture about what truly matters over the little trivial things and minute details. Again the philosophical, infinitely bigger cosmic approach that Sagittarius is known for. Like the arrow of the Sagittarius archer, focus on what is really important to make your life easier during this Sagittarius full moon. 

    How can you aim higher? 

    Where is best to place your attention and focus here and right now? 

    That is your power, your choice, if you are open and willing to, see the higher meaning and purpose to be found in your life here and right now, despite any heartbreak, pains and disappointments. 

    What bigger picture thinking do you need to invite into your life right now?

    Can you see it all from a larger, holistic, infinite perspective as if you were and are the Universe right now watching you and how life is unfolding?

    As the universe what do you want current you to unlearn?

    As the universe how are you helping current you evolve and grow?

    Sagittarius and Gemini: Approaches to life

    The differing polarity of Sagittarius and Gemini are also poignant in their approaches to life, Gemini is calculated, theoretical and logical (much like the ‘1’ investigator profile line in human design) whereas Sagittarius is experiential, intuitive and deductive. The embodied experiencer very much like the ‘3’ matyr profile line in human design, the hands on and curious approach. 

    Being half human and half horse with a sense for the wild and adventure, you would expect so and as such Sagittarius loves to roam. 

    Therefore during this full moon you may feel encouraged you to expand beyond your current horizons, to dream bigger, to take risks, to go down a road you haven’t been before. To do that of course you must first let go to make way for space and let go of old ways of thinking and behaving. To move beyond your comfort zone.

    Sagittarius and the truth

    Sagittarius is also known for radical honesty (known for being blunt) so maybe some harsh truths will arise and maybe even within yourself being truly honest with where you are right now, who you are right now and how you are feeling.

    What are some truths in your life right now?

    What is your inner truth right now?

    How can you be more honest with yourself and others?

    As they say the truth will set you free and that is another thing Sagittarius is known for loving and seeking freedom and enlightenment. You may be compelled to unlearn what no longer serves you and instead seek information and guidance in alignment with you.

    How can you attain more liberation in your life?

    Impact of body parts Sagittarius Full Moon

    This week I’ve had clients bring up a few physical symptoms they are experiencing and I thought it would be interesting to share that each planet is known to energetically influence parts of our bodies and for Sagittarius that is the lower part of the body: liver, hips thighs, legs and lower back which makes sense for the sign known to love exploring.

    Following your heart

    Due to the astrological transits surrounding the Sagittarius full moon, there is a great focus on your heart. 

    How is your heart in this moment? 

    What does your heart want to say to you? 

    This full moon will have lots of fire, given the influence of Mars (the planet of passion and action) will be present giving us extra confidence, confidence and enthusiasm to follow our hearts in the pursuit of our desires and dreams. It can be a very intense energy so it’s important to feel the passion burning for what we want through the lens of non attachment. 

    Moreover with all this fire energy, it’s ideal to incorporate this into your full moon rituals such as lighting a candle or incense and burning away what you want to release and let go of.

    The unexpected during the Sagittarius Full Moon

    That’s not the only thing, do note the planet of communication Mercury (which rules Gemini) will be meeting the unexpected Uranus which means during this full moon you may have or find out something wildcard or surprising. Not dislike the nature of adventures in general which Sagittarius love. An adventures is full of highs and lows, twists and turns that’s part of the fun – it wouldn’t be so if it was all easy. Life is the biggest adventure of all for us, as divine souls having a human experience.

    Good luck navigating and exploring the energies of this Sagittarius full moon beautiful soul. Until next time, I hope you have a lovely week.

    Episode 33 - March 2023 Energy Update and Virgo Full Moon

    Hi Beautiful Soul, I’m so happy and grateful that you are here listening and there is a lot to share. Before I do I just wanted to say oh my goodness on 2/3/23 I received the first physical copy of my book and wow it felt soooo aligned. 

    As a listener of this podcast I’m going to have a huge announcement about the book towards the end of the month but watch this space! The book is going to be released in June. It felt so surreal to hold in my hands a body of work that I have poured my heart and soul into all of last year in 2022. If you want to be the first to know about this news, head to my website phidang.com/book and sign up to the book updates mailing list!

    What is going on energetically in March 2023?

    Now getting to today’s podcast episode. I felt really drawn and compelled to speak about what is going on energetically, spiritually and astrologically in March 2023 because there is so much happening – we see major planets changing signs which I will also cover in todays’ episode. A portal of change. March Madness. Likely the biggest astrological shifts and cosmic changes we will see for the whole year are happening in March.

    March 2023 is a brand new astrological cycle

    The vibe I am collectively sensing is by the time March is over we will all be saying woah and without a doubt experiencing change. In saying that maybe not everyone will experience visceral noticeable changes, but for sure seeds are being planted that will be revisited. March is the month of movement, where the real astrological new year begins (a brand new cycle of 12 months starts March 20th). I strongly recommend journaling throughout the month of March, it will prove useful as the year unfolds and you can revisit what themes are coming up for you. 

    Virgo Full Moon in March 2023

    The release of this episode coincides with the Virgo Full Moon in March. With full moons they are the close of a cycle, a time to release, surrender and let go of what no longer serves you. This one in particular links back to August 2022 in particular around the 27th/28th of August. I highly recommend flipping through old journals, photos and calendars to see what was going on in your life back then. What did you start, what intentions did you set and how is this playing out now? 

    For me it’s wild to think about this because this coincides with my break up last year as well as moving homes. I was also so busy with human designs, facilitating readings at a retreat and getting stuck into writing the book, which is now obviously finished and done. I’m feeling much more grounded and I’ve energetically landed since those big life changing moves. It’s also worth checking in with any intentions you set 2 weeks ago with the new moon energy. I’ve felt personally that the theme has been surrender particularly with an overactive mind.

    Virgo traits and qualities

    Virgo itself as a sign is all about organisation, logical, practical, prim, proper, grounded in contrast to Pisces where the sun is right now which is head in the clouds, dreamy, emotional, spiritual, creative vibe. Think of these energies as contrasting yet complementary like yin and yang. With all the energies at play, what’s emerging is finding peace in stability thanks to Virgo: your home being clean and tidy, routines and daily rituals. 

    Virgo is calling out the messy, disorganised and chaos and calling in self care. Think clearing clutter and tidying up spaces. What you could say is this energy is bringing us into balance through the reality of day to day life our physical health and wellbeing – exercise, food consumption and the environment we live in as well as the spiritual through Pisces, our connection to spirituality, our dreams and visions and creativity.

    March 2023 Responsibility as a theme

    I will note what I’ve seen in speaking with my clients lately is the theme of responsibility which will also pop up with this full moon given the reputation of Virgos to be very responsible. Perhaps explore your relationship with responsibility. What responsibilities do you have, to others, to yourself? With Virgo in mind, particularly what responsibility do you have to yourself in terms of self care and practicalities to keep you nourished and thriving in day to day life?

    March 2023 feeling stuck in your head and mind

    What I see also being a focal point of this full moon is being in our minds. Virgo by nature is analytical and inquisitive and a shadow of Pisces can be getting lost in your daydreams. It’s important to note where your mind is placing its attention because that can greatly impact and influence how you are feeling. 

    Virgo and Pisces in March 2023

    Virgo could be that energy that grounds your dreams into reality but taking practical steps. Pisces energy encourages Virgo to be practical yet allow yourself to dream, very much that energy of ‘shoot for the moon because if you miss you’ll end up amongst the stars.’ Further to this given the Virgo energies, if you have been moving through shadows of control, perfectionism and feeling like you aren’t doing enough, you may feel the effects of this full moon more urging you to move through these, integrate and let go. 

    Tension and feeling overwhelmed in March 2023

    You may also be feeling tension because of a T square happening in the planets between Moon in Virgo, Sun in Pisces and Mars in Gemini which places an immense pressure that everything and anything must be done right now and happen right now (fiery Mars and fiery Gemini).

    So if you are experiencing a few days of gloom or melancholy, perhaps feeling overwhelmed its okay, be kind to yourself there’s a lot of energetic shifts in the air. Give yourself a few days for it to mellow out although as you’ll hear there’s a lot going on in the stars.

    March 2023 Virgo Full Moon Journal and Journaling Prompts

    Some journal prompts for you to consider:

    • What no longer serves you right now that you intend to surrender to the full moon?
    • How can you have more creative, artistic expression in my life?
    • What areas of your self have you neglected and need greater love and attention?
    • Free write about what comes to mind when you think of responsibility?  
    • What practical steps and actions can you take towards making your dreams and desires a reality? 

    So let’s talk about the big planetary shifts that will affect us in March.

    Saturn Return Pisces March 2023

    Within an hour of the full moon in Virgo, Saturn—the planet of tough love, tough lessons, discipline, responsibility, maturity, and commitment—will enter Pisces for the first time since 1996. Saturn shifts signs about every 3 years and when it does, we have new lessons emerge. Perhaps it’s worth even thinking about the lessons you’ve learnt in the last 3 years since March 2020 because Saturn is known as the lord of Karma and of course it’s lessons that we mature, grow and expand upon (not the easiest!). Therefore expect a new cycle and shifting in karma within your life.

    Are you starting or ending a Saturn Return in 2023?

    This is a markable shift one of the biggest in 2023, if not the biggest, and I must say I am relieved because it marks the end of my Saturn Return and for anyone born Feb. 6, 1991–May 20, 1993; June 29, 1993–Jan. 28, 1994 and those and born January 1962- March 1964 for your second Saturn Return whereas if you were born May 21, 1993 and June 30, 1993 or January 28, 1994 and April 7, 1996, welcome to your first Saturn Return. If you were born March 25, 1964, to March 4, 1967 you’ll be experiencing your second Saturn Return. 

    Coming out of a Saturn Return is like relief and a breath of fresh air. After all that pressure, it’s time for the wind down, the integration of all the shake ups that you’ve had since January 2020. It has been extra strong given Saturn also happens to rule Aquarius. Starting one? Buckle up and get ready for life to shift for your highest growth and alignment, often life will be taking you out of your comfort zone for this transit. 

    Saturn Return collective impact and influence

    I can see over the past few episodes how I’ve chatted about Saturn Return and truth be told I am still integrating all of the lessons from my Saturn so a podcast episode on it is due however in the meantime if you are looking for guidance and support with this transition, I do Saturn Return Human Design readings so please get in touch! To give you an idea of how we collectively felt Saturn Return it entered Aquarius in March 2020 and we all know what started happening then, the pandemic, it’s lockdowns and the Black Lives Matter Movement.

    Saturn shifting from Aquarius to Pisces

    The shift from Aquarius ruled by the mind to Pisces emotions again a stark contrast like the full moon between organised, practical, grounded Virgo and dreamy Pisces. Themes to emerge from this shift are around spirituality, expression, boundaries and mental health. This energy can often give us a reality check on what is really going instead of perhaps being in the shadow of dreams disconnected from any founding reality or grounding e.g. just manifesting without any inspired action. 

    It can wake us up to what is really happening and lift the veil from our eyes perhaps if we have been trying to ignore things or wish/hope for the better without any evidence. The contrast of these  energies also collectively teaches us to hold and embrace the nature of duality, it’s not one or the other, both operate in this energetic realm. Moreover Pisces is known as the visionary artist, so it’s a great time to unlock and unleash your creativity particularly in expressing your emotions and dreams. 

    With everything I’m chatting through here these are broad collective themes, for specifics it would be best to do a customised human design reading with me or work with me on a 1:1 level, I do have spots available. 

    Jupiter and Chiron March 2023

    Later in the week around March 12th, we see Jupiter the planet of expansion meeting Chiron the wounded healer in Aries, something that only happens every 50 years on average. Whatever shadows, pains and wounds arise during this time is for your growth as per Jupiter’s influence. It will help to see the broad, bigger picture should it feel difficult for you.

    Venus enters Taurus March 2023

    Venus the planet of love, leisure, beauty and an indicator of abundance enters it’s home sign in Taurus on the 16th. So perhaps partnerships will be on your mind as will finances. There is a lot of other planetary action happening on this date too when Mercury meets Mars in Gemini which can signal fiery conversations or miscommunication. 

    At some point on the same day before Venus lands in Taurus, it does collide with Pluto which can bring up shadows in relationships such as power struggles, obsession and jealousy so be aware of that. There’s more to mention but really all you need to know is be aware of the hectic energy on the 16th. The best way to deal with this all is to be grounded in nature, aware of your own energy and conscious of your actions towards another. 

    The Sun entering Aries March 2023

    Taking place March 20th, the Equinox will take place with it becoming Spring in the Northern Hemisphere or Autumn/Full in the Southern Hemisphere this coincides with the astrological seasons shifting from Pisces to Aries so we can expect fresh, fiery energy and greater momentum building from that date. Aries is a bold influence after all.

    Thus kicking off a brand new astrological cycle with the Aries New Moon March 21st. If the beginning of the calendar year hasn’t been going your way, the energy of the new moon is like a second start to hunker down and recommit. The energy will be giving you a boost of added motivation and fired up ignition. What you set up now will be revisited around the end of September this year. 

    Pluto shifting from Capricorn to Aquarius March 2023

    Pluto is the planet of intensity, death, destruction, transformation and rebirth and that shifts from Capricorn to Aquarius for the first time since 2008 that’s 15 years on March 23rd. It’s the slowest moving planet. You may want to go down memory lane to 15 years ago what was happening in your life and any themes around death and rebirth. 

    This is only temporary for a taste of what is to come for the actual shift in November 2024 where Pluto will remain for 20 years until 2044 . Collectively, change is definite here and will likely be in relation to Aquarian energies and themes: friendships, freedom, technology, humanity, the internet, innovation and communication. Again this will impact you personally differently depending on your chart.

    The wildest thing is Pluto hasn’t been in Aquarius since around 1777 when multiple revolutions happened including the American, Haitian and French revolution, Uranus was discovered and the first smallpox vaccine was successful. What I’ve been seeing touted and predicted are advancements in vaccines, AI and aliens to say the least. Given what went down all those years ago it could be dramatic changes in the structures and systems of society too.

    Mars moving from Gemini to Cancer March 2023

    March 25th onwards, Moving from Gemini to Cancer. We can see the pattern again here heady Gemini into the emotional waters of Cancer. We can really see the shift collectively happening to get us out of tensions with our minds – thought loops, mental patterns, anxiety into being in our bodies to feel it all. It could feel like a mix of moody emotional energy that pops up. 

    Venus and Uranus in March 2023

    Venus again at the end of the month on the 30th becomes a wildcard given it meets with Uranus the planet of the unexpected, who knows what could happen after such as big month!

    As you can see an absolutely huge energetic powerhouse of a month. If you are looking for support and guidance, I’d love to help through 1:1 coaching or a human design reading, get in touch and we can chat about what’s best for you!
