This full moon occurs in Leo at 3 degrees at 1.48 am on 24th January 2016. This full moon has a powerful alignment of a Mercury retrograde in aspect with Pluto and Uranus, which actually stretches for the whole of this week due to Mercury about to turn direct. This adds a strong intensity to all our communications and dealings.

At full moons we have an open door which at other times stands closed. Through that door or opening, energies can be contacted which are usually unavailable. This is a time when the spiritual beings that look after our planet are more accessible. We can call upon them and their energies will flow in more seamlessly.

This is especially more the case with Pluto making a conjunction, and Uranus it’s square, to Mercury. Outer planets hold archetypal energies and can catapult us quickly forward in our growth. Neptune dissolves the boundary of the ego, Pluto unearths hidden shadow and Uranus shocks us into awareness of a need to change.

Any inner work undertaken now will upshift you considerably, this is your opportunity to clear out old wounds from many lifetimes ago. Think beyond the past of this life and you’ll make the most of it.

It’s also a time of restoring balance, with Chiron forming a minor aspect in with this mix. There’s a sense of being able to clean up your karma right now. Invite those from your past where you have had challenging relationships with that are not complete, to clean up their karma with you, give them opportunities, reconnect if it feels right (remember readiness though).

Life might feel like a bit of a battle under these astrological conditions. With Mercury-Pluto-Uranus, there’s a lot of unspoken communication, not being heard by those that you need to desperately hear you. There might be silence from others, a lot of this might be about power plays, subtle and more obvious manipulation.

Its best, under these energies and in these circumstances, to keep your centre and find creative ways around any issues rather than push others who are resisting you to give you what you want, as that’s not going to work here and will just destabilise you more when you don’t get what you want. Instead just let others get on with their issues and let your body guide you towards a creative solution. There is always a creative solution, you just need to trust and command it into being. Keep your centre, power and energy.

On 25th January Mercury finally turns direct. The time for rethinking and reviewing isn’t entirely over, but we can begin to get clearer on the way forward over the next few weeks. After you’re the delays, your perspective will now be considerably different as to before the Mercury retrograde period.

This year is about releasing that which has far outlived its purpose, a time of decontaminating our bodies, our waters. With Jupiter conjunct the North Node in Virgo (and Virgo is about purification), we might come into contact with people, mentors who can help with this physical, emotional, mental and spiritual cleanse. This is personal and specific for you.

Many of us are working with difficult feelings that arise when we are in relationship with others, and how we manage the challenges those difficult feelings bring. Take the time to observe and notice what feelings are with you, that challenge you, which drive you into worthlessness, hopelessness, or powerlessness. At full moon’s it’s easy to feel when these emotions arise as our emotional waters are more awake and in the flow.

The violet flame is an amazing tool, a dispensation from the Ascended Masters that clear out old emotional patterns at source. The secret when working with the Violet Flame is surrender. The more we can let go and let the Violet Flame do the work, the more it can do the work. Here’s a way of commanding and calling it in.

Before entering into the Sacred Fire, sit and focus on what you are working to release, what you would like to have the Great Purity Freedom Flame do, knowing that the Royal Purple Flame has the Power to take out of you, and your world, anything that is limiting you.

Take a moment to centre yourself in your heart – you are connecting here with your higher self. Once you feel that connection, perhaps just a vibration… then call (from your higher self) the Violet Flame, the Violet Flame angels, the Violet Flame planet, St Germain.

Start visualising a Violet Flame, in through and around you, encompassing all your energy field, 12 feet high. Visualise it flowing up your feet and flowing down into your crown. When you start feeling the Violet Flame, start following your proprioception and your feelings, noticing where it rests, saying what feels right or the something like the following “I release this thing…(the thing that is bothering you), into the Sacred Fire…this anger, irritation or despair, that takes me into fear… I release this fear…. Go now into the Beloved Violet Flame. I call the Violet Flame to pour in, through, and around me, and take all fear right out of me.”

It’s important you pour your love to your Higher self, to your Beloved Great Cosmic Self, who is the Source of these Consuming Flames of Divine Love, and pour your love to the Angels of the Purity Flames who specialise in pouring forth the Violet Flames, to the Mighty Saint Germain (keeper of the flame), and to the Mighty Arcturus — the 7th Elohim of the Violet Ray, and then just love and bless that Sacred Fire Flame and command and demand your Great God Sacred Fire Freedom.

There is no hard and fast rules – it is best to follow what guides you and as long as you visualise and feel it you can’t go wrong.
