We will be having the first of six Supermoons on March 8/9th, 2016. (Depending on your time zone)
It’s even more exciting that this New Supermoon will also be a Total Solar Eclipse and visible from several parts of the World. Including Indonesia on March 9th, and from Hawaii and Alaska on March 8th.
So, what is a Super New Moon?
An astrologer, Richard Nolle, is credited with coining the term Supermoon. He defines them as “a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth.”
When a Supermoon is also a New Moon, observers on Earth are not able to see it, as its illuminated side faces away from the Earth toward the Sun.
The only time a New Moon can be seen is during a solar eclipse. This is when it passes directly in front of the Sun, visibly showing off part or all of its dark disk.
The closer the Moon is to the Earth; the greater effect it has on our planet. It creates higher than usual tides, a much stronger gravitational pull, as well as a huge surge of feelings and events affecting all Earth’s inhabitants in some way.
What can we expect from this New Supermoon?
Infused with the fluid, transpersonal quality of Pisces, and with the added power of being a Supermoon and a Solar Eclipse, this New Moon is an opportunity for us to ease into a fresh cosmic cycle, blending with the natural rhythm of the Universe.
The New Moon symbolizes a time for an emotional and spiritual reboot.
Thus, we are becoming more cosmically charged, and more in sync with the Piscean gifts of intuition and surrender. Our Ego urgencies are blocked out of that sacred space so we are able to blend with life and rest in the silence of beingness. We’re free to ride the wave of inspiration and easily embrace the flow; instead of wasting our psychic energy questioning the direction.
Sometimes, as in this particular Pisces Super New Moon/Eclipse, forward momentum might feel more like a struggle; slow or even nonexistent. When this occurs, it’s important to remain centered, and in a state of heightened perception and trust.
Complete faith and trust are one of Pisces greatest strengths. As soon as we tap into our innate wisdom allowing the cosmic balance to shine through us, there is no need to wait for tangible signs of progress – we will just know.
“Aligning and directing your energies to work with the moon phases creates awareness and balance.”
Getting your Supermoon On
During this Super New Moon 2-week phase, all activities, mental and physical, that you ‘launch or set into motion, (at the closest proximity of the new moon) will be strengthened by the waxing energy of this Super New Moon’s pull, as it moves towards its fruition of fullness.
New moon phases are a great time for embarking on a new project or physical journey. Planting in the garden, starting a new job and forming enduring relationships all stand to benefit from the solid thrust of positive energy that appears with each new moon.
Meeting someone new on a new moon day can be the mark of a lasting friendship or love relationship. And, just as the Moon’s voidness denotes a time to rest and regroup, the New Moon calls our attention to be aware and open to all things new.
With many New Moon Blessings,

Why can’t we see ourselves the way the ones that care about us, see us?
Wouldn’t that just make life so much easier? All of us go through our lives trapped in our own shell, with our own insecurities. Every single one of us, on this insane planet have at least one insecurity. Whether that be your body size and shape, your medical condition, what your skin looks like, and so much more! The list goes on and on! Society tears us down to the point where we hate ourselves! We see these celebrities, models, and even YouTubers, with these make-up tutorials, or un-natural bodies, etc.
That makes us think that we’d love to be like them! Why would you though? Why not be yourself? Why not show how beautiful you are, because everyone is beautiful in their own way! We need to learn to be comfortable in our own skin, we need to learn to love ourselves like the ones around us; love us. We all are down on ourselves, I’m guilty for it, I have insecurites that people say aren’t bad, or doesn’t look bad, etc. I still hate myself for it though. I know others do it too, when someone calls you handsome, or beautiful or anything in an act of kindness, we need to take it, and be proud of it, it can be hard, I know it is. I just hope that everybody can eventually see themselves how the ones who care about you, see you!
~ A thought provoking post from my inspirational son,
Joshua Tasker, 17 ~
Have you ever had someone burst into your bubble and they were carrying a powerful energy of anger that had absolutely nothing to do with you? Only to find that they end up just popping back out of your space like nothing ever even happened?
You find yourself left sitting there feeling overwhelmed, vibrating and shaky, and confused. What’s worse is that now you’re feeling this negative energy too. Eventually, you calm down, but the damage has already been done.
The effects of harboring negative energy are very unhealthy for our entire mind and body, especially our soul. Yet most of us still suffer from this on a daily basis and many don’t even realize that they are carrying this dangerous weapon.
I believe that it is very important to our health and well-being to teach ourselves to rebound the unwanted energies that belong to others. This can be achieved by staying focused on your own vibration, and allowing it to dim away any fires. It’s going to take practice, as this is not an easy thing to do.
As an Empath, I am always wanting to help others work through their anger. It’s the fixer in me. However, if I am vibrating at the same anger level as them, then I am in a just as bad state of being. This in which is in no way helpful to them, or to me, and usually only escalates into something much bigger and makes us angrier.
So, how does one stop these energy attacks from happening in the first place?
Here are three easy steps you can take to help you master this skill:
First, you excuse yourself from your current space. (go to the restroom for example) This way, you are immediately turning your back on the energy, rebounding it back to its carrier.
Give yourself 5 minutes alone to breathe and become centered again. Remind yourself of how your own energy feels and flows. Remember the feeling and flow of your energy, and always carry it with you.
You are now ready to go back out to that angry space while carrying the calming balance of your own vibrational energy. You are now able to feel and connect with the compassion and calmness of your own energy, allowing it to flick out the fiery flames of anger. You’ll be able to move past this without it leaving any residual anger energy behind.
These steps will take practice, but in time, it will become a regular habit. The changes and improvements to your health and well-being will be so worth it! It is one of the most valuable skills I have learned along my journey. Choosing which energies to absorb, and which to rebound. I am no longer being overwhelmed by all the static energy around me that is not mine to carry, and I have never felt happier and lighter!

Living with a rare debilitating condition Called Symptomatic Mastocytosis, dubbed the ‘Allergic to the World disease’, is a challenging, and ever-changing journey. It causes my body to produce way too many mast cells. Normally, our mast cells are a great thing. They are there to protect and alert our body to all sorts of dangers, and allergens, and actually work to protect us from said danger. But in a condition like mine, with just too many mast cells, we are in a constant high alert mode, always in what we call a ‘flare’, just beneath the surface. Due to our unpredictable and sensitive ‘alert mode’, almost anything can trigger us and cause us to go into ANA. (Anaphylaxis Shock)
Basically, you never know what you are going to get each day, as the symptoms and effects are always changing, and adapting.
Tricky little cells those.
So I spend my days going in and out of flares, alternating good days and bad, waxing and waning just like our Moon.
I remain focused on the blessings in each day, and have faith and trust, that my light will always show me the way.
I am so grateful to be home with my family, and for the days I am able to write, and share some inspiration, laughter, or thought provoking quote.
I am even thankful for those bad days, the ‘resting times’, as they always make me feel lighter and stronger, getting brighter with each flare I overcome. I feel like I’m literally glowing in all of my light, giving me the courage, and strength I need, to continue to persevere, move through, and beyond this recent challenge.
I am honored to have shared, a piece of myself with you.
I hope it helps to remind you, to have continued faith, trust and embrace your resilient light. Always remain grateful, even for those struggles, as they will only make you a stronger, brighter, and much wiser person for it.
I am closing with a poem that I have recently written, do you ever feel like our ever-changing Moon?
I Feel Like the Moon
I feel like the moon, a sliver of light,
a wink of brightness, in the darkness of night.
I feel like the moon, as with each passing day,
I get fuller and brighter, lighting my way.
I feel like the moon, so full and so bright,
as the World is aglow, with all of my light.
I feel like the moon, as my light whisks away,
as the tides rumble through me, and I begin to fade.
I feel like the moon, beginning a fresh new glow,
as my strength grows only stronger, when I just let it flow.
I feel like the moon, this everchanging ball of light,
just waxing and waning with all of my might.
This poem was inspired by a very troubled young fellow, whom suffers from Bipolar as well as several addictions, and that I had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with recently during my long stay in the hospital.
What I have learned ~ When you see someone struggling, never lead with judgement, take a moment to place yourself directly in their light path, and allow yourself to learn, see, and understand who they truly are! Share your light, and love with all those around you, and feel your soul soar. It changed me, it will change you too
You are Worthy
I see you, with those wild crazy eyes flying about,
darting back and forth in a drug induced paranoia.
Rapid words and uttered fears,
so scared, so untrusting.
You notice me sitting there, quietly watching as you approach,
staring at you with a small shy smile, welcoming your presence.
I feel you, as you vibrate slowly move towards me.
Your eyes huge and unsure, expecting me to think you are not worthy.
I say, ‘Hi, how are you?’, as I reach out my hand,
wanting you to know, that I want to understand.
I hear you, as you stop and you stare, with confusion and wonder.
what kind of spell is this crazy girl under?
My hand stays outstretched, until you take hold.
and I notice your eyes, shine with bright flecks of gold.
We shared a special moment, and a short prayer of intention,
that we together we’ll move through and past this transition.
A new found friend, still fighting his demons,
but with a whole new way of looking for reasons.
I’m in awe of the strength, I see in your eyes,
I tell you so, as you smile with surprise.
You love like a fierce tiger, always prepared for the fight.
your soul touches many, when you lead with your light.
You share a song on your guitar, flash a smile or tell a joke,
you have an uncanny ability to remember the names of all folk.
Let the fog roll away,
Let your body be cleansed.
Allow time for your answers,
your prayers have been sent.
You must do the work,
and it will take time.
But I have faith in the knowing,
you will bloom and you will shine.
Be blessed my friend, for you have forever changed me,
you gave me the gift, of letting me in to see.
Your wisdom and insight, and outlook on life,
will inevitably drive you to win this fight.
Sending much love light to you all,
Well February 2016 has been a bittersweet month for me so far…
A month that is filled with beautiful memories such as, celebrating my Valentine’s Anniversary with the most amazing, kind, patient, (for the most part, it’s good to have some sass in there) understanding, beautiful soul of a man, any women could wish for, but unfortunately having to share this special memory in the hospital…
What an adventure that was! It was my longest stay in hospital, next to being on bed rest with Josh, and it about drove me bananas, but funnily enough, in a good way.
I was given no choice but to take these bountiful drugs, that calm the uncontrollable flare that I got myself stuck in.
I have a Mast Cell disease called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. A condition that causes my body to produce WAY too many mast cells. You see mast cells are a great thing, they protect and alert our body to all sorts of dangers, and actually work to protect you from said danger. But in a condition like mine, with too many mast cells, we are in a constant high alert mode. Always in what we call a ‘flare’ just beneath the surface. Because we are so sensitive in our alert mode, almost anything can trigger us and cause us to go into ANA. (Anaphylaxis)
When we think ANA, we automatically think you can’t breath, thankfully this has only happened to me a handful of times. There are many with my condition that this happens to daily!!
When I am going into ANA, I usually feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest, not a nice vibe, but I stay calm and remind myself I can breath, I use my inhaler, take my pills and relax, or meditate, works well for me. Sometimes though,mit’s my stomach that goes into ANA, which was the case that brought me into hospital. I must have eaten something my body didn’t like, and I went into a complete flare, I was so sick that after a week at home sick I was entering extreme danger zone.
So in I went…
I hate the way all these meds make me feel but they are doing their job, and slowly but surely (18 days later) I was starting to stabilize.
This was frightening for me, I have never been this sick before, it really gets a girl riled. But I never lost my faith that I would see this through, and place this in my past along with all of these amazingly tough lessons life likes to throw at me.
You know what keeps me going? I never cease to amaze myself!! Sounds funny, but I have have gone through a lot of well, shit, and I always follow the exact same pattern to work my way through it, learn from it, and place it in my past.
It starts with my usual pity party, now don’t be judging, this is so good for me. I cry, I feel sad and sorry for myself, but then I always ask WHY?? (I most often yell it, lol) and it’s then, that I start finding the answers that that I need to start working my way through this.
So today, as I’m resting at home with my family, recuperating and preparing to push through this adventure, I find myself once again, feeling so unbelievably blessed.
I have already come through the worst of it, as I am staying stable at home (Woot!) but I have much work to do to repair my body from all the damage this flare has done.
I will heal, Its already begun, so the blessings are bountiful and are what I choose to focus on when I feel frustrated with how hard or how long this is taking (Impatient little Imp that I am, I have so much to do, and I’m so far behind yikes!!)
I definitely need to work harder on my patience, I’ve got the patient part down pat, why is the rest so hard?! LOL!!
So that’s my February so far! I wanted to share this with you because I am trying to open up and share a bit more of myself. I want you to know the real authentic me.
I cannot thank you all enough for following my work, and blessing me with your openness and kindness, prayers and love, and I am so honored to be walking this soul path with you. ❤️
I would like to send out a very special thank you to my unbelievably supportive team of #WUVIP Soul sisters, Shari Alyse, Anna Pereira, Kimberly Rogers Bayne, Heather Durling, Ashley Brewer, Heather Corinne Lang, Cheryl O’Connor.
I could not have made it through those darkest moments without you.
The love, light-circles, prayers and pep talks, helped me find the strength I needed to push forward. I will always be eternally grateful and I am incredibly honored to be a part of thewellnessuniverse.com ❤️
Sending much love, and light-filled blessings,
Those tough lessons life throws us, that help us to grow.
Can be so painful, and scary but through it we must go.
It’s futile to fight, you must choose to face those fears
To push on and through it, with pause for cleansing tears.
Take each step very slowly, just one at a time.
And before you know it you’ve begun the climb.
The hill will be steep, and you might slip and you will fall,
but you keep on getting up, and pushing through it all.
You begin to see this small, simmering glow,
a light on the horizon, beckoning you to follow.
Focusing on your purpose, keeps you set on course
It grows with each new step, as your strength grows with force.
Keep climbing toward that light, see it get brighter,
Let it remind you of who you are, as you begin to feel lighter.
At the top of that climb will be the end of this path,
You’ll move onto another, leaving this one in your past.
From this difficult struggle that seemed to go on and on forever
Is a bright shiny new you, stronger and more together.
The power is yours, within you is where it lies,
just always believe, in your strength and your light.
