I hope you & yours are well. I’ve not written many full Energy Forecasts this year because…….well….. it’s been 2020! There has been so much going on, it’s hard to know where to begin and energetically, if you can imagine the Matrix in your mind ~ cosmically, it looks like spaghetti right now 😉
However, we’re now moving into the part of the year where astrologically, things are going to get realllllly interesting. I can see a lot of challenges still to come, but WOW there are some incredible, overarching energies. These forces can truly carry us into a World that changes for the better. When people all over the World are saying the key is to transmute fear into love, they’re not wrong. The energy of the Collective has NEVER been more important than it is now. Not in our lifetime.
We’re ending a 20 year cycle, a 200 year cycle and we’re moving into elemental energy humanity hasn’t experienced in over 800 years. That’s an awful lot, all at once. It’s why the times we’re living in now are unprecedented and will continue to be so for a few years yet.
That doesn’t mean they’ll be as destructive as they are now, but some systems still need to break down a little further before we can begin the process of rebuilding them in a better way. It’s wise to bear this in mind when everything seems to be descending into chaos or what’s going on in the outside world becomes overwhelming.
Keep pulling out and away from the chaos/fear/overwhelm to focus on your own life with the knowledge that this IS just a process. After the fire, from the ashes, the Phoenix rises! Right now, we’re still in the fire stage and that is absolutely necessary ~ just keep your eye & faith on the Phoenix and you’ll be fine.
I felt strongly guided to share the different themes and transformation points as we move through the next 8-10 weeks as we are being taken through a highly uncomfortable, but ultimately liberating process. If we can understand what that process is and surrender to it, this energy really is life changing. We can see how powerful it is by how it’s changing the World as we know it in under a year.
Eclipse Season ~ Nov 2020 – Dec 2021
The base energy of an Eclipse Season is to ask us to change and transform in stages. That’s why looking at the season in it’s entirety can be really helpful as we can see what the overall goal is. Rather than write out long lengths of text, am simply going to bullet point this information to make it as easy/simple to look back on as possible. If we are being individually impacted by an eclipse, we will start to feel those energies in the weeks building up to it and for a few weeks afterwards.
30 November 2020 ~ Full Moon in Gemini ~ Partial Lunar Eclipse
This one is the first in the season and lunar, so it triggers our emotions & can fog our brain a little
New information coming to light
There may be a feeling of lack of clarity or understanding around something
Duality and division are highlighted
If you’re not genuinely open, curious & able to think critically, don’t engage
Black & white thinking will not serve, we need rainbow coloured thinking
We are supposed to feel challenged at this time, embrace it
Stay aligned with who you truly are and centered within yourself
14 December 2020 ~ New Moon in Sagittarius ~ Total Solar Eclipse
This one is solar, so impacts our reality and day to day living
A huge shift ~ time for a reset
Accepting the darkness, knowing we’re moving towards the light
Creative, spiritual energy abounds
Deep sense of what is possible ~ fab time to visualise/manifest
More clarity available if we’re willing to observe honestly
Be present, really present around this time
What do you really believe in? Dedicate yourself to that now & for this lunar cycle, see where it takes you
26 May 2021 ~ Full Moon in Sagittarius ~ Total Lunar Eclipse
Back into our emotions again, but this time, our highest
Energy of great abundance and manifestation
Raising energy and positive vibration very important
Be the change you want to see in the World
Shine the brightest you can on all levels
The collective has the power to create global change
10 June 2021 ~ New Moon in Gemini ~ Partial Solar Eclipse
Pay attention to others and focus on being present
Be open to multiple answers and step out of right/wrong
Find new avenues of self expression
How can you connect to the World in a bigger way?
Be open minded, seek new information, use critical thinking
19 November 2021 ~ Full Moon in Taurus ~ Partial Lunar Eclipse
Mercury comes out of retrograde fully in early November
If you aren’t taking some form of action, now is the time to dive into your emotions & figure out why
How can you make yourself feel emotionally secure?
How can you strengthen existing foundations
How do you comfort & support yourself and others
Do you feel safe? If not, why not? Now is the time to address that
4 December ~ New Moon in Sagittarius ~ Total Solar Eclipse
A time of completion of many things
The collapse of separateness and feeling so divided
A time to connect deeply with Source and others
Great time to travel, visualise or manifest
A sense of freedom
When we look at the Zodiac signs governing this Eclipse Season, we can relax. We’ve got Gemini, Taurus and Sagittarius ~ bridging duality, finding safety, comfort & good things and opening our minds to higher awareness, to freedom and inspiration. All heavily supported by strong, spiritual undertones that take us down into the darkness, but then lift us up again, into pure light.
Be prepared to both dive and rise in equal measure ~ it may not be pretty, but you’re going to feel absolutely amazing by this time next year ~ IF you do the work WHEN it’s asked of you. We lose our right to shelve things in 2021 as the energy will be moving so fast, it’s a case of grab it whilst it’s hot or it’ll be gone. That work will be much harder next time round, which will come in rapid succession throughout 2021. Big girl/boy pants required at times, but lately, when hasn’t that been the case? 😉

Over Arching Energies
There are three over arching themes running throughout 2021 and there is so much information about them, it’s hard to convey that clearly without writing huge volumes. So, I’m going to bullet point the energies to focus on that will keep you out of the chaos. Bear in mind however, that some chaos is necessary to trigger transformation.
If you’re faced with any of the less pleasant energies or specifically, emotions, know that you’re supposed to work through them and come out the other side brighter and happier. Every single piece of deep, individual work we do over the next year adds positive, transmuted energy to the collective. We aren’t just doing this work for ourselves, we’re doing it for our Ancestors, everyone currently on this planet and all those Souls who have yet to arrive. The primary Universal & Spiritual Law is that We are all One and the Universe is doing it’s absolute best to show us that.
If you observe any of the negative energies below externally, simply acknowledge they’re necessary right now and are coming up to be transformed. There is no need to give them any of your beautiful, precious energy. If any of the positive energies can be woven into your creative endeavours or work, they practically guarantee success.
Thinking outside the box, new inspiration
Progression through thinking and communicating in a different way
Collaborate in groups, form small businesses in partnership, start community projects
Uphold your Sovereignty & Integrity, especially in collaboration
Rebellion, refuse to conform, reject labels that limit your beliefs or freedom
Focus on social justice, humanitarianism, the environment and educational reform
Be open to new, spiritual morals, ideals & ways of being
Align your actions with divine will or soul purpose
Injustice, unfairness, rejection, controversy
Work through any guilt, shame, blame or control issues
When challenged, go inwards, do the work, then rise
Awareness of Polarity is necessary, but we’re aiming for the middle ground or an entirely new ground all together
Release old, limited patterns of behaviour and belief
Get to know your Shadow and embrace it ~ this one is imperative for ALL lightworkers. We cannot hold separateness within ourselves & expect it to be healed in the World.
Let go of ANYTHING that does not serve you ~ truly ~ no exceptions
Do the work being asked of you now and you will never have to do it again (human or Soul!)
There is so much to say about 21st December 2020 this year that I will reserve that information for another blog in the next few weeks. It truly is remarkable energy, so much so it brought tears to my eyes and I cannot wait to see how it manifests! There’s some fantastic global meditations happening on the 21st. If you ever felt the pull to join in on something collective, this is THE day to do so over any other in the coming century. I kid you not, joining together, from the heart, could trigger massive downloads and new information for many.
It’s not enough to be with a group of friends to celebrate the Solstice this year (for those who can), it’s about connecting to everyone, everything and Source. I’m excited, so check back in a few weeks to see why the 21st is so special this year. I will say that the energy isn’t likely to spark a massive shift all on that single day. Cosmic cycles play out over time, so it’s always a process and gradual change, rather than change occurring with the flick of a switch.
Please don’t buy into anything you see or hear in the media as being a done deal. Nothing is currently as it seems, so trying to figure it all out is actually a waste of time unless you’re deeply researching something or are specifically guided to do so. There are still so many things that need to finish being dismantled and forces trying to push agendas that need to be pushed, even if they’re unpleasant.
We first have to fully witness the depth of the darkness in society ~ before we can collectively transmute it into light.
Rockhounding on Vancouver Island and Gulf IslandsDonald Lovegrove2019-01-14T23:42:12-08:00
Discover ancient fossils, sedimentary chert, or just regular old pretty stones. Vancouver Island’s volcanic origin and the ancient uplifting of tectonic plates promises the energetic hounder a constant supply of interesting treasures and precious finds. Combine rockhounding with casual strolls along the beach or strenuous hikes in search of exposed mineral veins – either way, you’re in for a memorable outing amid magnificent scenery!
Sedimentary Rock Formations, Conery Crescent Beach, Pender Island, Gulf Islands, British Columbia
The abundance and accessibility of beaches on Vancouver Island makes it a ‘gold mine’ for the rockhound. Most beaches are public with good access, and full of treasure at low tide. The glacial origin of the Island is responsible for large deposits of debris full of rocks, with the fascinating geology visible everywhere here and in the Gulf Islands. Ferocious winter storms constantly churn up the coastline, offering renewed bounty to the rock enthusiast.
Even the cobble beaches within Victoria can provide areas of interest to the rockhound. Dallasite, named after Dallas Road, is a volcanic rock found on almost any beach, and is not restricted to the Island. Just outside Victoria on the way to Swartz Bay is Island View beach, the site of several palaeontological finds and a good area for rocks and fossils. Large pieces of the sedimentary cliffs that overhang the beach often crumble to the ground below, revealing precious fossils and rock specimens.
West of the city, between Sooke and Jordan River, miles of rockhounding terrain include Whiffen Spit, Sooke Bay, Otter Point and Gordon Beach. Each of these areas has its own unique beauty, geography and rock finds.
Driving north up the Island will bring you to the Cowichan Lake region, including the ridge around Lake Cowichan and the community of Youbou, known for their supplies of rhodonite. At Nanaimo there is Petroglyph Provincial Park and the Horne Lake area (Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park), which is rich in dallasite. The beaches at Parksville and Qualicum Beach are wonderful for rockhounding, beachcombing and swimming.
Englishman River Falls Provincial Park has a spectacular series of waterfalls and pools with unusual geological formations and interesting rocks and boulders. The area has been made into a provincial park and campground, and it is an easy day trip from Victoria. To get there, drive west out of Parksville for ten minutes on well-marked roads.
Wherever you travel on Vancouver Island, it is possible to discover interesting geological specimens. The experienced rockhound will not find it difficult to search through the overgrowth and vegetation of inland areas, while the novice may want to stick to the beach. Either way, the trails, roads and paths that crisscross the Island make it possible to have a rewarding rockhounding experience.
