How to Use Your Own Energy to Attract Abundance

energy_20150927_300Is Your Energy Attracting or Repelling Abundance in Your Life?

Have you ever wished for love, money or just something wonderful to come into your life, but you haven’t seen results? If you’ve used the Law of Attraction but you haven’t been attracting anything but flies, you’re certainly not alone. Don’t worry though because you’re about to find out what ingredients have been missing from your manifestation recipe. You’ll also learn how to use your own energy to attract abundance, not just once, but for all time.

Blocks and Obstacles

Attracting abundance into your life has a few more ingredients than just wishing and hoping—although those are positive things to add. What you want to do first though is to eliminate the negative blocks and obstacles that are keeping you from manifesting your dreams. Those obstacles can include:

•Not being grateful for what you already have
•Harboring grudges against people
•Being unable to forgive
•Hanging on to old rivalries or resentments
•Wishing negative outcomes for people who have hurt you
•Surrounding your hopes and dreams with doubt that you’ll ever realize them
•Not feeling worthy enough … [keep reading]

Bella Luna 2: The Super Harvest Blood Moon Eclipse … in Aries

Super MoonPerigee – Proxigee Super Moon

As promised last month in Bella Luna: Decoding the Mystery and Magic of a Super Moon (and with no time to waste) here is my post on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries (which takes place tonight – Sunday, September 27th), which is also a Super Moon – or perigee Moon, meaning that it’s comes within 90 degrees of its closest approach to Earth. This particular perigee Moon is THE closest to Earth of all the 2015 Super Moons and therefore it is not only a perigee Moon – because it is the closest, we call this one a “proxigee” Moon.

Blood Moon – Harvest Moon

As one of my favorite sights,, put it, tonight’s Moon can be most simply called “The Super Blood Moon Eclipse.”  For those of you who are confused about all of these labels, let me add one more – this is also what we call in the Northern Hemisphere, the Harvest Moon.

The Harvest Moon gets its title because it is the closest full moon to the Autumn equinox (September 2015).

The Blood Moon title comes from the fact that “it [re]presents the fourth and final eclipse of a lunar tetrad: four straight total eclipses of the moon, spaced at six lunar months (full moons) apart. Phew!”  I let handle the technical side.  So, why is it “blood red”?  Well, we learned this in grammar school, but since this is one of those places where science meets religion on an even playing field, I’ll let the Wiccans take this:

According to, “We have not had a Super Blood Moon since 1982 and the next on will not appear int eh skies until 2033 [and] only five SuperMoon eclipses have taken place since 1900.”  Further they add, “The Moon will become encompassed in the Earth’s umbral shadow turning it a deep red for over an hour. The Sun, Earth and Moon will be in perfect alignment.”

This Moon holds a lot of different meanings to a lot of different religions, beliefs and individuals.  With all of my current knowledge of “other-wordly stuff,” as some say, coupled with a look at the scientific side and all of my research, there was one special religious happening of great significance that I did notice, and you can view on it CNN.  The Pope is giving his final mass of his U.S. visit today.  It’s a good vibe though – his energy is awesome; just a personal opinion.  I always prefer to look at the positive side of things and not read too much into some of the doomsday-type prophecies I touched on when looking to the meaning of this day.  Of course, this is my blog and that’s why I write about my view but I hope that I give all sides a fair shake – except the negative.  I just refuse to go there.

Energy, Astrology and the Moon in Aries

Aries is the sign in which we meet our Super Harvest Blood Moon Eclipse.  Aries a/k/a Mars (depending on if your preference is Roman or Greek mythology) is the warrior sign, it is also the zodiac sign whose ruling planet is Mars.  Aries sits at the top of the zodiac and so it always wants to be first or at the head of the line in all things.  But there’s more too it than that, especially since an eclipse is involved – remember, eclipses bring the unexpected and they often bring some life-changing event along for the ride.

Since I’m going all over to get the best info for your full and well-rounded knowledge, let me share with you something I found on

“We have been experiencing lunar eclipses in the Aries-Libra axis since October 18th 2013, roughly every 6 months. This will be the last and most powerful one. The Aries-Libra axis represents the polarity between the individual self and relationships. Aries is independent and bold, and makes decisions based on its own best interests. Libra is codependent and always considerate of relationships in its actions. It is the sign of partnerships, fairness, and equality.

“During this lunar eclipse, we are involved in a tug-of-war between these two signs. The North Node is on the Libra side of the fence, which emphasizes the challenge to be balanced, fair, equal, and considerate of our relationships when we act on our own interests. It is about moving forward in new ways that serve the evolution of our soul.”

I really couldn’t have explained it any better than that.

WIll I be Able to See the Eclipse?

Here’s a chart from that will explain when.  Follow this link to see where in the world you’ll most likely see it.

“When the Eclipse Happens Worldwide

Lunar eclipses look approximately the same all over the world and happen at the same time.

The times displayed are accurate to around 2-3 seconds.

* The Moon is above the horizon during this eclipse, so with good weather conditions in Charlotte, the entire eclipse is visible.”

The chart uses Charlotte, NC as a reference because that is the closest big city to me.

I hope that you found this to be a well-rounded view of a very auspicious and multi-titled event.  See you outside!

3 Simple Steps to Achieving a Good Work-Life Balance

life_balance_20150924_300A Work-Life Balance Can Be Achieved!

When it comes to achieving a good work-life balance, there’s a lot of conflicting advice out there. Some say it’s fairly easy to achieve (in 37 steps), some say it’s not so easy but it’s worth the process and some say it’s not really possible to achieve at all. I say, “Take what you’ve got and work with it.”

Keep it Simple

The real key to managing all the craziness in your life comes from you—no tools, no rules, just you. It’s all about keeping your priorities straight and feeling confident about your choices. Life can be wonderful, exciting and fulfilling, but it can also be confusing, stressful and even messy. Still, with all that and more to contend with, life can also be pretty manageable, and achieving that infamous … [keep reading]

Numerology: The Mystery and Magic of 919

numerology_20150919_300Numerology: The Mystery and Magic of 919

September 19, 2015 at 12:00 am

Discovering the magic and mystery surrounding numbers and numerology is like learning a new language that also expands your consciousness. Numerology provides awareness, like decoding a dream or lifting a veil. In this article we will explore the meaning(s) behind the number 919.

Numerology: The Process

When a numerologist looks at a number, there are basically three things they see. The first is the number as a whole—in this case the number 919. Secondly, they look at the individual numbers within the whole number—in this case the numbers 9 and 1. And lastly (although there is no particular order to doing this) a numerologist would add the individual numbers and work the total into the lowest possible single digit. Here’s how that works:

Bella Luna: Decoding the Mystery and Magic of a Super Moon

My apologies for posting this after the fact.  I do appreciate my loyal readers and hate to let you down with news after the fact.  Next month’s Super Moon is the closest to Earth of all the Super Moons in 2015 (and it’s an eclipse!), and since I’ve not been assigned an article to write for that – you’ll be getting a totally Artful Articles exclusive look at the next “Bella Luna.”  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Super MoonThe Super Moon and You

There’s something fascinating and even poetic about a big, fat Full Moon, especially when it’s so close to Earth that it dominates the night sky and looks almost close enough to touch. The Full Moon in Pisces on August 29 is a Super Moon!

What is a Super Moon?

By definition, a Super Moon is either a New Moon or a Full Moon that comes within 90 degrees of its closest approach to Earth. Typically, this happens on the average of four-to-six times a year. In the year 2015, there are six Super Moons: three New Moons that we experienced in January, February and March and three Full Moons in August, September and October. No one gets to see a New Moon, which is why there’s so much more hype around Super Moons that are full and visible from Earth.

Many Moons

According to, an astrologer named Richard Nolle is credited with coining the term “Super Moon” more than 30 years ago. Before then, astronomers called these moons, “perigee moons.” Perigee means “closest to Earth.” Moons that are farthest from the Earth are called “apogee moons.” The closest of the perigee moons to occur each year is called a “proxigee moon” and in 2015, that occurs next month in September, and it’s also a total lunar eclipse.

About the August Super Moon

The very-full Super Moon of August emerges in the sign of Pisces—the sign of sensitive souls, gifted artists and the spiritually minded. Pisces rules the 12th house, the house of the subconscious mind, spiritual growth and Karma.

Emotions vs. Common Sense

With this super-Full Super Moon, emotions take … [click here to read more]
