May 2018: Revolution of freedom and abundance. And so it begins...

Ambi Sitham

YASSSSSSSSS!

YASSSSSSSSS!

 

Hello lovely ones and happy May!

Hopefully this finds you all well and having navigated the Scorpio Full Moon...if you're feeling all the feels and need some inspiration on how to harness the transformative Scorpio energies which affect each of us until November, check out my latest podcast episode on Soundcloud or iTunes.

Onwards now to May 2018 - a very important month which sees cosmic change agent Uranus move out of Aries where he has been since March 2011 and move into Taurus where he will be until 2026.

Uranus rules freedom, progression, change and the future.

In the natural zodiac (which applies to each of us) Taurus rules money and possessions - our personal finances and income, our 'things' which hold value to us and so too our values and self-esteem.

On a more macro level Taurus also rules the banks, financial institutions, currency - indeed the very notes and coins we use to purchase things.

As we have already seen from the cryptocurrency phenomenon, whether everyone is accepting or realizing it or not, money and the form of currency we use, is undergoing a huge revolution.

Now, this month, with Uranus moving into Taurus the seeds are being sown for huge changes to global financial systems, our currencies, how we do business and our economies.

Expect the unexpected over the next nine years.

And in the same way, that we and the world at large will experience sudden changes in all the life areas identified above ruled by Taurus so too we must expect these changes in the life areas ruled by Taurus in our unique charts.

Recording more on this for my Members soon...

In the meantime, the Soulstrology theme for May 2018 is that of a revolution.

A revolution of freedom and abundance.

This month we need to think yes about money, but also about abundance and whether we are living free and liberated and enjoying a rich life. Or not.

But Soulstrology tells us that is the aim of our existence, to enjoy a rich life in all areas.

An abundance of health, love, joy, family, creativity, rest, play as well as material abundance...

So much more to say on this that it has inspired my next podcast episode so stay tuned...

Mantra of the month:

I know that living abundantly is my birthright

I embrace true wealth as living abundantly in all areas of life

I am liberated knowing that I can live abundantly without compromising my values

I open myself up to creating a revolution in how I live and work, knowing I can live and work in a way which means I live a truly rich life

I am wishing you all a marvelous start to May. May we each sow the seeds of freedom and abundance in order to live a truly rich life.

Love,

Ambi x

December 2017: Looking backwards to move forward

Ambi Sitham

Ditto!

Ditto!

Hello lovely ones and welcome to December 2017!

The last month of 2017 is set to be an intense one with Mercury already in retrograde shadow and the official retrograde starting hours before the last Full Moon of 2017 which will be a Super Full Moon at that!

Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and Saturn is in his final stages of transiting Sagittarius as he will depart the Sagittarius zone of the zodiac on December 20th and move into Capricorn.

This Mercury retrograde will dominate the last month of the year as will the Sagittarius ruled part of each of our charts with the Sun shining brightly in Sagittarius for the first three weeks of the month.

The Saturn in Sagittarius transit started in December 2014 and apart from a few months in the summer of 2015 when Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio, Saturn has been putting each of us through the mill when it comes to the Sagittarius ruled parts of lives in our unique charts.

Use the chart calculator on this website to see which areas of life Sagittarius governs in your life to understand where this transit has played out for you in terms of life areas.

As a Sagittarius sun sign, with a total of four planets in Sagittarius, I can tell you that this transit has been extremely challenging, and not escaping the deep sorrow that Saturn often brings  (with my Dad passing away) but has also seen me mature and grow and create new strong foundations in my life.

I am grateful for the lessons and the blessings but also ready to wave Saturn goodbye for another 28 years!

Turning now to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme for December 2017.

It is no cosmic coincidence that Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius during the final weeks of Saturn's transit of Sagittarius.

Mercury retrogrades as I think you all know by now, are a great opportunity to do all things RE. RE view, REconcile, RE think, RE consider, RE start, REunite and so on.

This particular Mercury retrograde is asking us to look back over the last year but also over the last few years of Saturn's transit and the personal challenges, delays, or fear we may have experienced (all of these are Saturn's shadow).

We are being asked by the cosmos to look backwards but only insofar as to learn and integrate the lessons so that we can truly move forwards.

As the quote in the image accompanying this blog wisely says, we learn from our mistakes or we go backwards in life.

Soulstrology says that if we keep repeating the same mistakes we cannot point the finger of blame at the cosmos, the moon and stars, we need to take responsibility and turn the finger around and point it at ourselves.

We are continually co-creating our existences with the cosmos so we need to do our bit to tap into the energies and blessings which are available.

Soulstrology reminds us that mistakes are powerful, valuable lessons and that we will always be making mistakes in life and this is part of the human existence.

However, we know we are growing when we stop making the same mistakes and start making new ones!

That's when we know we have shed old karma and have new opportunities for growth and new blessings to tap into.

Some people get sensitive or defensive around the idea of making a mistake and taking responsibility for it but this over sensitivity and defensiveness is usually just an ego reaction.

It's easier to adopt victim consciousness but it is more rewarding to adopt victor consciousness and alchemize our mistakes into mastery and miracles.

Whilst Saturn's tough love is often focused upon it is easy to forget that this is the planet that rewards hard work over time.

Saturn transits may test you, but they will also reward you!

When the cosmic taskmaster departs a zone of your chart it's as though he gives you a star based on your efforts.

In each of our lives this star equates to reaping what we have sown.

But the transit is not over yet and Mercury's retrograde can bring back past issues for final healing and closure so we can move forwards and receive our cosmic dues from Saturn.

Gold stars all around please!

Over the next month when many of us are in holiday mode and focusing on festivities and gifts, give yourself the gift of time and effort into reviewing your life over the last year and the Sagittarius ruled part of your life over the last three years.

It truly is the greatest gift you can give yourself so that you can move forwards to have the 2018 you desire...

Mantra of the month:

I practice patience with myself and others knowing any seeming delays or mistakes are in cosmic order and will unravel themselves for the highest good in divine timing

I look backwards with courage and faith knowing that by healing the past I can transform my future

I embrace my mistakes as MUST TAKES and willingly integrate the lessons trusting that doing so will create the space for me to receive

As always I will write detailed blogs for both the New and Full Moons.

Members can expect weekly cosmic updates and more detailed information for their zodiac sign for both the Full and New Moons.

In the meantime here are the key dates for your cosmic diary for December 2017.

December 1: Mars (in Libra) opposes Uranus (in Aries) - tense aspect, can lead to conflict and power struggles, positive outcome is sudden change manifesting

December 2: Jupiter (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) harmonious, romantic, creative, spiritual aspect

December 25: Venus moves into Capricorn (will write detailed blog on this for Members)

December 25: Venus (in Capricorn) conjuncts Saturn (in Capricorn) I predict LOTS of Christmas Day proposals in 2017 (more than usual!) as Venus governs love, Saturn governs commitment and status!

December 28: Mars (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) positive powerful aspect for creativity, romance/sex and spirituality

I am wishing you all a wonderful last month of 2017.

May we all have the courage to look backwards and heal and clear so we can finally move forward.

Love,

Breakdowns and breakthroughs: September 28 2017: Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries, the finale!

Ambi Sitham

Word to the wise!

Word to the wise!

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

Tomorrow, September 28, there is the final act of a powerful aspect between Jupiter (abundance, expansion, miracles) in Libra (relationships) and Uranus (change, revolution) in Aries (the individual, identity, autonomy).

This aspect is an opposition, which Soulstrology explains is a tense aspect with a stand off as such between two areas of our lives.

This aspect creates an 'either or' scenario in each of our lives, where something significant shifts.

August 2017: Dancing with the winds of change

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely ones and welcome to August 2017 and eclipse season!

With the sun in fiery Leo for the month, a powerful Jupiter/Pluto aspect,  a lunar and solar eclipse and Mercury Retrograde, all I can say is - expect the unexpected this month!

As we all know eclipse season brings the winds of change.

Soulstrology says that Jupiter square Pluto at the start of August indicates powerful transformation, good fortune and a rebirth of sorts is on the cards for many this month ahead.

Mercury retrograde as always can bring back the past, for healing and/or closure or for opportunity and a sweet new beginning.

Either way, change is the theme of August.

For some this change may be welcome, planned or long anticipated.

For others it may manifest as an abrupt, unseen or unwelcome ending.

Soulstrology says that whatever manifests for us this month is in divine cosmic order and that we must not only keep the faith that all is unfolding exactly as it ought to but also trust that the events of this month are for our highest good in the bigger picture of our destiny.

When we experience sudden change it often results in us freezing or being floored.

Or sometimes we fight against the direction of the winds, forcing ourselves to move against the natural rhythm of cosmic change, staggering and gasping for air as we do so.

Change isn't always welcome or easy and is often far from pleasant.

But it is the only constant.

This month whether you are experiencing welcome changes or have the rug pulled from underneath you, trust that your only job is to dance with the winds of change.

Dancing with the winds of change is to dance with your eyes closed as though no-one is watching.

Lose any self-consciousness, shut out external distractions, tune into your heart and dance to the rhythm of change with grace and joy, trusting you are being led to your destiny.

As always I will write detailed blogs for the Full Moon/Lunar eclipse and New Moon/Solar eclipse.

Members can expect the scoop on all the other cosmic activity including a Soulstrology guide to Mercury retrograde and the eclipses.

Below are the key cosmic dates for your diary.

August 1st: Venus moves into Cancer

August 3rd: Uranus turns retrograde

August 4th: Jupiter (in Libra) square Pluto - positive, powerful transformation

August 7th: Lunar Eclipse 15 degrees Aquarius (will write detailed blog on this) 

August 10th: Sun (in Leo) sextiles Jupiter (in Libra) positive aspect

August 12th: Venus (in Cancer) trines Neptune (in Pisces) spiritual, creative, romantic aspect

August 12th: Mercury Retrograde starts

August 13th: Sun (in Leo) trines Saturn (in Sagittarius) positive, powerful aspect

August 15th: Venus (in Cancer) opposite Pluto (in Capricorn) powerful aspect which can be very productive and positive but tense. Be mindful around communication.

August 17th: Venus (in Cancer) squares Jupiter (in Libra) powerful positive aspect for relationships but can be tense.

August 21st: Solar eclipse 29 degrees Leo (will write detailed post on this)

August 22nd: Sun moves into Virgo aka start of Virgo season

August 22nd: Mars (in Leo) trines Saturn (in Sagittarius)  positive, energetic aspect

August 25th: Saturn (in Sagittarius) turns direct

August 26th: Sun (in Virgo) conjuncts Mercury (in Virgo) powerful aspect for the mind,  communication and work but remember Mercury is in retrograde!

August 27th: Jupiter (in Libra) sextiles Saturn (in Sagittarius) harmonious, positive aspect

I am wishing you all a wonderful month in which you dance to the winds of change trusting that the cosmos has your back and that ultimately, all is unfolding for your highest good.

Love,

My marriage, my father's funeral and a new dawn

Ambi Sitham

Mr and Mrs Kavanagh, Hawaii June 2017

Mr and Mrs Kavanagh, Hawaii June 2017

Hello lovely ones and I hope you had a good New Moon and are enjoying the start of Leo season.

As you may have gathered by now this isn't one of my usual Soulstrology posts.

I guess this is the start of me writing and sharing in a different way, plus there are some important updates on my services (which won't affect all of you but will definitely impact upon some of you) as a result of all the life changes I am going through.

As some of you who follow me on Instagram may know, a month ago today I married the most incredible, kind, smart, handsome man who I know without a doubt is my partner in life and love.

It's kind of bonkers (as we say in England!) when you consider that a year ago we had yet to go on our first date!

Our relationship and my own personal journey of alchemy with love cannot possibly be covered in a blog, or even several blogs, but I am sure I will write more on it soon....for now I will just say that I am SO happy...

However as we all know life is full of ups and downs, ebbs and flows, blessings and challenges.

Around the time of our wedding my beloved Dad, who has been seriously ill for over a decade, took a turn for the worse.

He'd had many bad turns over the last decade and my family had gone through many scares of losing him.

At first I thought this incident was more of the same as he seemed to get a little better.

However, around the Capricorn Full Moon (my Dad was a Capricorn) his condition deteriorated rapidly and he passed away last weekend.

So it was with sadness but so much love that my new husband and I flew to London and I said goodbye to my beloved Dad last week.

My Dad and I had a particularly close bond.

I was lucky to be doted on by him and to dote on him in equal measure.

He was one of my biggest spiritual influences as my first meditation teacher (aged ten) and my first (and forever) spiritual guide.

I hope that I am part of his legacy and do him justice with the work I now do which is undoubtedly my soul's purpose.

I'm so grateful that he and my wonderful husband got to meet, and despite my human sadness I am so relieved that my Dad is no longer suffering as a prisoner to a body that was betraying him and that he has peace and his soul has gone some place way better.

People often ask whether I can see death in a chart and it is a question that I am very wary at answering.

The answer is yes you can see the energies of death (but remember transformation is death of sorts and equally physical death is the ultimate transformation) but as you all know by now with Soulstrology, nothing can be 'predicted' per se.

However I could see the strong possibility of his passing due to transits in both our charts.

This was accompanied by a very strong intuitive feeling for the last few years that in spite of his ill health my Dad was holding on until I was happily married and he knew I was on the right path in all areas.

So whilst it was of course deeply upsetting (you are never prepared for these things no matter how many years you have been in preparation) to me it was no coincidence that my Dad took such a turn for the worse at the Capricorn Full Moon or that he passed on a few weeks after my marriage.

Last week at his funeral I read this poem as part of my speech and I truly feel that my Dad will forever be with me and all who he loved and who might need him (and I hope that in some small way these words can be of comfort to others who are experiencing bereavement)

Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye

I am looking forward to connecting with him in another way - through my dreams, my meditations, and signs and synchronicities from the universe.

I will no doubt feel the human loss of my Dad for the rest of my time on this earth plane but in truth I have been grieving him since he nearly passed a decade ago.

This was the final goodbye. 

Although I cried many tears in the days of his passing and at his funeral I now find myself at peace and my heart is overflowing with love and gratitude.

To have my wonderful new husband (who shares the same pure, gently spirit as my Dad) by my side during this time and to be be embarking upon one of the biggest chapters of my life with our marriage, reminded me of the beautiful cycle of this human existence of endings and beginnings, deaths and rebirths and that love never dies.

It is indeed a new dawn.

Yep. Yep. Yep.

Yep. Yep. Yep.

Last year (before I met my husband or he was even on the radar) I realized that I wanted to make some big changes both personally and professionally.

I knew it wouldn't happen overnight but I started to plant the seeds both in my consciousness and on the physical plane.

For a couple of years I had been quietly working away, with a packed client schedule, more often than not working six days a week with up to five sessions a day -  reiki, sound healing, astrology, coaching and mentoring.

I also had a small email list of people whom I would email old school style with a BCC email with my Soulstrology updates.

I loved helping people but it left very little time for a personal life or for me to play and explore my own creativity and self-expression.

I knew I had to make changes.

I knew I had to give myself space to continue this ongoing process of alchemy that is life and to become the next version of myself.

I also knew I wanted to share with a wider audience and help more people.

I started a proper website, committed to regular blogs, social media posts and put myself out there a whole lot more than was comfortable.

This year I knew that my life was changing beyond all recognition, that I was embarking upon a whole new chapter, that my priorities were shifting and that a season of life was coming to an end.

I knew that I couldn't continue to do everything and that something had to give.

 I also knew I either had to be proactive or the universe would do it for me.

Jump, or get pushed.

That was the message I received from the universe, loud and clear.

In fact, I am now leaping with joy into this new chapter with my Dad's serene smile ever present in my mind's eye and my husband and biggest cheerleader supporting me.

So, as of 1st September I am saying goodbye to my glorious little miracle making abode of the last few years which has been the source of healing and light for so many people (including myself!) and birthed my first New and Full Moon circles and Soulstrology Soundbaths.

As a result I will no longer be providing regular in person Reiki, Astrology, Coaching or Mentoring sessions.

If you want to squeeze in to see me in person before September 1 then please email ask@alchemywithambi.com to arrange a session via my assistant.

I have a few current in person mentees whom I fully intend to continue with for as long as they need me.

My mentees who I look after by Skype and telephone will also be accommodated by me in person if/when they come to Los Angeles.

But as of 1st September anyone wanting a reading or coaching can still enjoy a session with me but only via Skype or telephone.

My Reiki energy will flow at all the events I do (Soundbaths, workshops, Moon circles and more) and into everything I am creating.

I may also do the occasional day of Reiki and/or Soundbaths (when I give Reiki or sound healing I actually receive it hence why I love giving those sessions!) at another venue but such days will be very few and far between.

I am going to be serving for just a few days a week (as opposed to nearly the entire week!) and the rest of the time I am going to be living, loving, playing and creating a whole lot more.

I truly feel all of this is going to serve me and others as I am able to share in a whole different way.

As you may be able to tell despite the emotional rollercoaster of the last month I am beyond excited, happy and grateful about the future.

And as I type this I can feel my Dad's loving energy around me....

Signing off for now with so much love and gratitude but expect to hear more from me in the Fall (and Soulstrology updates will continue as normal!)

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

September 2016: Stand firm in the winds of change

Canvas

september2016.jpg

Hello lovely ones and welcome to September 2016! September brings eclipse season and is a game changer of a month where all of our lives will be shook up, however due to mercury retrograde we may experience delays or confusion over the changes that this month will ultimately create.

In September (which starts with a solar eclipse in Virgo) there will be a flurry of activity in the cosmos which will force endings for many and fling others into new beginnings.

Ready or not, change is around the corner.

Below are the key cosmic dates for your diary: -

September 1: Solar eclipse in Virgo

September 10: Saturn square Neptune

September 10: Jupiter goes into Libra

September 16: Lunar eclipse in Pisces

September 21: Autumn equinox

September 22: Mercury stations direct

September 25/26: Jupiter in Libra conjuncts the Sun in Libra

September 27: Mars moves into Capricorn

September 30: New moon in Libra

 

Eclipses thrust change upon us. They push us outside of our comfort zone. They force us to deal with our karma so that we can embrace our destiny. They (sometimes brutally) fling us into our future when we are stubbornly holding onto our past or refusing to move forward (often subconsciously).

The final Saturn Neptune square is going to test us individually and globally.  This tense aspect is causing certain situations/relationships/projects to dissolve (Neptune) so that we can create more realistic structures and boundaries and enduring success (Saturn).

The Saturn/Neptune square continues this theme of endings and beginnings and at times of forced change which may come with growing pains.

Jupiter is in his last steps of Virgo. He will not transit this sign for another 12 years. The Virgo part of each of our charts is receiving a boost from Jupiter. Mercury is retrograde in Virgo and far from being doom and gloom means that past opportunities may return as the blessing of this transit.

Jupiter is going to change signs into Libra bringing SO much good juju for love, relationships of all sorts and the peace movement (much more to say on this in time).

The Autumn equinox signifies the change of seasons both on the physical plane and in terms of our spiritual selves.

But the backdrop to all this cosmic activity is mercury retrograde. A time when communications can go awry, our thinking can be a bit skewed and there are delays and reversals which can make us feel we are being denied our desired outcomes.

Even if we don't see or experience it immediately, the seeds of change are being sown this month.

Our consciousness and 'job' this month is to be grounded and rooted.

To stand tall and firm and allow the eclipses to open new doors for us and end certain chapters.

To be graceful in allowing what needs to be dissolved in our lives to melt away so that we can create the new in our lives from a realistic, solid foundation.

It is not for us to fight unexpected changes this month, but rather to stand firm in our faith trusting that there is rhyme and reason for whatever occurs and to know that we will see the bigger picture next month when the eclipse dust has settled and mercury is back up to speed.

I will write more tomorrow on the solar eclipse but for now I am wishing you all a very happy start to this new month.

May we all experience changes that will bring us into alignment with our higher selves which I know will ultimately bring each of us the happiness and blessings we desire.

Love

Ambi x
