Lunar New Yr is greatest marked with area clearing, power clearing and decluttering – organising your room or house so that you simply solely have belongings you love or want round you. Every part else ought to go to the closest charity store or be recycled.

As a Premium Member, you’ll be able to learn extra about this in your Astrology Journal, complimentary to obtain. The Journal is obtainable to obtain in My Downloads, beneath Members’ Lounge.

Throughout Asia, the thought of a brand new broom sweeping clear, is central to the pre-Lunar New Yr interval. Let’s take a look at these previous concepts about making area/creating area and see what else is occurring, right here – and the way you need to use it.

Spark Pleasure

I’m positive you’ve heard of Marie Kondo and her guide, The Life-Altering Magic of Tidying Up. Her query was, ‘Does this merchandise spark pleasure?’

She’s very massive on folding. And rolling. In case you haven’t seen her movies on YouTube, have a look. She does it like knowledgeable, as a result of she is knowledgeable. Greater than 2 million views can’t be incorrect. Marie says she places love into her palms as she does it. That sounds lots higher than home tasks.

The Minimalists, two forward-thinking males at, are one other inspiration. And in case you assume none of that is new, you’re proper. It was round 20 years in the past, nevertheless it nonetheless works, and even for those who’ve finished it earlier than – you possibly can by no means be too motivated and impressed.

Creating New Area for 2019 to Come In

This concept about solely having possessions round you which of them make you are feeling good – even nice – just isn’t new. In case you take a look at Marie Kondo’s Instagram account you’ll instantly get a way of area, readability and calm.

This feelgood issue comes from being fairly ruthless about every thing that you simply personal, have borrowed, or are taking care of for different individuals! What fills your bed room, or your own home fills your head. Clear your head by clearing your area. It’s an effort, however it’s value it.

Taurus and Scorpio Elements and Power Clearing

Typically you’ll have elements in Taurus and/or Scorpio in your chart (or your associate, relations or flatmates do) that make it very arduous to let go of non-essentials at house.

The difficulty for you or others with lots of Taurus/Scorpio chart elements could also be that one thing value some huge cash, or you will have ‘all the time’ collected it, or that you simply really feel too nervous to throw it out, as a result of you could want it someday. That’s quite common. Taurus the bull holds on and hangs on. Scorpions seize on tightly too!

In Scorpio, the patterns are actually concerning the emotional ties that bind, so that is actually about your mother and father, your associate, your former, companion and any relations – locked into all that you simply earn, personal or owe. Feeling responsible about giving one thing away that they gave you is one other widespread end result.

In case you multiply years of birthday or Christmas presents, although, you’ll find yourself with a wardrobe which is stuffed full of luggage and packing containers inside with plastic luggage beneath the cavity between wardrobe and flooring, with but extra bins and suitcases piled on prime. And you might not even know what’s in there. But, area is cash. The wealthy pay some huge cash for area. Roomy seats in First Class. Huge areas to reside in! This can be a good argument for anybody with a Taurus/Scorpio overload who resists decluttering and power clearing. Extra room to maneuver creates prompt added worth to a room.

Feng Shui and Power Clearing

I used to be fortunate sufficient to satisfy Karen Kingston, the writer of Creating Sacred Area with Feng Shui and Clear Your Muddle with Feng Shui, once I was the astrologer at Elle journal. We did a fast journey to the workplace to see what was fallacious and proper with the area. I discovered so much about not simply Feng Shui, however decluttering (Karen is a Cancerian so focussed on houses).

I’ve used these strategies for round 20 years and it’s grow to be a lifestyle. As you go into February and Lunar New Yr I strongly advocate you attempt it. Sweep clear!

I like to recommend her web site for inspiration. Articles like ‘Don’t let your property turn out to be a museum of the previous’ converse loud and clear.

I’m not an skilled on Feng Shui, nor ceremonial space-clearing, however I do need to move on some details about pre-Lunar New Yr house blitzes earlier than you get to February.

21st Century Goddess Information

What follows is impressed partly by 21st Century Goddess – The Trendy Woman’s Information to the Universe, the e-book I wrote with my buddies (each Leos) Jelena Glisic and Anthea Paul. It was revealed by Allen and Unwin in Australia, and Corgi in Nice Britain in 2002 so we’re coming as much as the 20th anniversary now. Anthea wrote an excellent chapter on power clearing.

Eliminating something you don’t love or use earlier than February will rework your day by day surroundings so that you’re not reminded consciously, or unconsciously reminded – of what you don’t need. This goes into who you don’t need, too. By no means have something round you that you simply ‘ought to’ maintain or ‘need to’ possess, as a result of the reality is – you don’t.

Diets, Gyms and Cookbooks

A quite common instance is the obese one that has unsuccessful eating regimen books and well-meaning recipe books with good intentions (uncooked meals, for instance) which simply sit there. So, does she. So, does her fitness center membership. Every thing sits! The load doesn’t shift.

The trainers that are seldom used, the train bike within the junk room or the juicer which was used as soon as are all muddle. In case you discover it arduous to half with one thing you set an emotional funding into, or some huge cash, remind your self that in Kensington, London, property worth is priced by the sq. foot of area. It may be fairly costly.

An individual who’s in chaos – confused about himself and his life – complicated to others – a little bit of a Nowhere Man – might have an house going nowhere. It doesn’t mirror who he’s, as a result of he doesn’t know who he’s. He has to ‘discover’ stuff on a regular basis and ‘search for it.’ What he has to seek out is himself. What he’s failing to search for, is himself.

I’m positive you understand somebody who’s a hoarder, or simply messy, whose life can also be messy. Even probably the most organised of us can find yourself with e mail accounts oozing with digital muddle, although. Earlier than Lunar New Yr, take into consideration your inbox.

Storage – Life on Maintain

Fairly aside from Karen Kingston, the opposite one that modified my life round 20 years in the past was Physique Store visionary Anita Roddick. She wrote a terrific autobiography and signed it to me, with the message ‘Jessica, life is just not a gown rehearsal.’ It made me realise I used to be all the time preparing for one thing. I ended preparing for it and did one thing about it! Lunar New Yr in February 2019 is your time for that too. An enormous rush of power sweeps the planet then, pouring in from Asia. No extra gown rehearsals.

Is your wardrobe a gown rehearsal altering room? Do you’ve got a gown that you simply’re going to put on in your second honeymoon at some point, however a wedding in hassle? Why is it there? Do you’ve got a ‘greatest’ job interview go well with for whenever you lastly get sacked or depart your place? Is there a spider dwelling within the pocket?

February Objectives – Who Has Lease-Free Area in Your Head?

I actually love this concept, which you’ll have heard earlier than. Why let individuals you don’t like, lease area in your head without charge to them? For those who consider your head as a home or condominium and picture that you simply cost individuals cash to take up residence in your reminiscences, ideas, worries, hopes, fears and goals – get actual concerning the males, ladies or youngsters who reside there. In case you are trustworthy with your self, not everybody actually deserves a room up there, do they? What do they do for you? Why are you renting the area out to them?

These sorts of discussions are actually applicable for Lunar New Yr on February 4th and February fifth (as with each date on this report, permit the day earlier than/day after rule for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres to meet up with one another).

Studying from the Specialists

Denise Linn is one other nice inspiration, and you’ll find her at She makes use of feathers, drums, bells, gongs, smudge smoke, mantras, water blessings, hearth clearings, salt, mudras and important oils to clear the power in a house.

My level is, cleansing up and clearing up can have highly effective and profound penalties. It makes issues very clear in your thoughts, as a result of your bed room (even) is among the largest influences on the way you see your self and your world. It’s the very last thing you see at night time. The very first thing you see within the morning.

You’re nearly hypnotising your self with what you see round you. It’s fixed promoting. Stage designers within the theatre place props very rigorously and intentionally to ship messages to the viewers concerning the story – the theme – the characters.

What are you designing as your props within the stage set that’s your room or house? This additionally applies to the belongings you disguise. The issues you realize you’ve, tucked away, in a type of ‘Out of sight, out of thoughts’ means – but they’re by no means out of your thoughts in any respect.

Storage is one other basic case of life on maintain. How lengthy have you ever been storing issues, why are you storing them, how a lot is it costing you and when are you going to retrieve these possessions (which you could have managed to efficiently reside with out for the final 6 months and counting!)

Ten Quick Information About Power Clearing

One of many causes individuals don’t clear up and filter out their rooms or houses (or gardens) is the arduous work concerned but in addition the confusion of deciding what to take away. Combined emotions, proper?

I journey an ideal deal and spend half the yr in Britain and half the yr in Australia, by way of locations like Dubai, Singapore and India. I don’t have plenty of area in my suitcase for gear to energy-clear with – and I don’t have lots of time for elaborate rituals. Listed here are some quick details and enjoyable ideas I can share with you about what works.

Delete Pointless Previous Emails

Make your common New Moon clearing even simpler by commonly deleting all e-mails which aren’t very important; trawling your desktop for non-essentials and popping them onto a reminiscence stick or different storage. Do the identical together with your phone. For those who’re undecided, simply begin a folder referred to as Undecided and park it someplace protected. At the very least it gained’t be cluttering your line of imaginative and prescient on-line or on the telephone! (Years later you will see that your Undecided folder on a reminiscence stick and deal with it as a quaint time capsule).

Be Trustworthy with Your self

Get actual and be trustworthy with your self about concepts which are by no means going to occur; pictures and movies of people who find themselves by no means going to matter that a lot to you; garments you’re by no means going to put on (regardless of how costly) and so forth. That is truly a part of the miracle. It’s not simply the chucking-out, it’s the confrontation together with your soul. Once you edit your room, residence, workplace drawers, phone and pc you discover out who you’re. Simply figuring out that extra clearly helps you direct 2019 higher. In case you are clearing your pc the place specific tasks, ideas or concepts are involved, be ruthless. I’m positive you poured loads of time and power into your phrases or photographs, but when they don’t work – they don’t work. Take a deep breath and delete or trash.

Does Power Clearing Make You Richer?

You’ll typically hear individuals come into cash after they space-clear or energy-clear. It’s stated to draw abundance. I don’t consider that for a second, however I’ve seen the act of tidying create cash, simply because individuals discover previous present vouchers down the again of the armchair from final Christmas – or they realise they will promote that Chanel field set they by no means opened on eBay. It’s also true that when you could have a extra organised area, you assume extra clearly and performance extra effectively. This makes you’re employed smarter and naturally you usually tend to earn a bonus or make a revenue. All of it provides up in the long run. In case you are actually into Feng Shui you’ll hunt down the specialists like Lillian Too on-line.

Spray as You Go

Fill a water-spray bottle with lavender or one other important oil you want and mist the area as you go. In the event you like crystals you’ll be able to cost one with the intention of decluttering, power clearing and cleansing up your life and your self – and your area – and pop it into the bottle. There’s something actually satisfying about cleansing out your wardrobe, or only a suitcase which holds low season garments, after which folding and spraying every little thing with a light-weight mist of lavender, rose or lemon.

Use Your Arms

Healers use their palms. You’ll be able to heal your property or room through the use of your palms. My favorite previous trick is to previous issues or seize them and ask your self in case your power has gone up, down or stayed degree. For those who maintain an unpaid invoice in your palms, did you simply really feel slightly heart-sink? When you maintain a fantastic bar of rose cleaning soap in your palms, did your coronary heart twitch upwards? That is the ‘spark’ that Marie Kondo talks about. The sinking feeling is a positive signal that it is advisable to take a deep breath and plough by way of the unpaid payments. Learn how different individuals do it. Log on and hunt down boards and professional web sites.

Clearing out your digital or paper photograph assortment is a very good instance of ‘power up or power down’ and it’s value a attempt. I threw out half-a-dozen pictures of a boyfriend from years in the past this manner. I stored one for the sake of historical past. In the event you can’t determine about your digital pictures, put all of them onto a reminiscence stick or comparable. Tag it and tuck it away. Then start instinctive trashing!

Why Lunar New Yr is Highly effective

The Asian group all over the world talks about ‘sweeping the mud’ or ‘sweeping away dangerous luck’ for Lunar New Yr. It’s a spring clear regardless that it’s February. You’ll discover an enormous power surge of latest tasks, concepts, gross sales, purchases and preparations quickly after. On a common sense degree it’s because so many Asians (even Loopy Wealthy Asians) need to get right down to enterprise after Lunar New Yr and that helps the world go round. On a extra mysterious degree, the power is actual. And the power shifts. The Solar and Moon have been highly effective symbols for individuals for hundreds of years. The primary Australians constructed a stone circle which marks the solstice. At Stonehenge they created a lunar timekeeping system. These things goes again centuries, as a result of it really works. New Moons matter.

Pinterest, Imaginative and prescient Boards and Journals

Eliminating what you don’t need, want, love or use helps you outline what you do. This will help you crystallise your intentions, hopes, objectives, needs and goals for 2019. Now write it down. Begin a imaginative and prescient board on Pinterest or use a cork board. Reduce out footage from magazines and glue them right into a journal or purchase some felt-tip pens and begin drawing. Make it actual. Get it out of your head and into the world. As a Premium Member you have got a complimentary Astrology Journal each quarter you can too use for a Treasure Map by sticking in what you need – and even writing letters to your self.

Wealthy Equals Area

To actually encourage your self, keep in mind that the richest individuals on the earth have probably the most area of their mansions, vacation villas and flats. They’ve huge grounds. Area is dear – it’s valuable and extremely useful. Once you clear area, you ‘purchase’ your self the posh of extra room. A sq. foot within the London W1 postcode in Mayfair or Soho will value you £1718.

Regardless of the worth of the area you personal or lease, consider every sq. foot you clear – in a drawer, on a shelf, on the ground – as priced and valued. Why are you giving it over to magazines you haven’t checked out in years?

In case you are broke, even when you’ve got one bed room in a shared house, you possibly can really feel immediately richer by creating area. Transfer the furnishings round. In the event you clear out your bedside chest of drawers and solely find yourself with the contents for one drawer, give it away and get your self some area (put the contents right into a bag and grasp from the bedpost). String luggage or recycled cotton luggage are an excellent answer if you wish to save area. Put stuff in and grasp it in your wardrobe.

Keep in mind, £1718 for each sq. foot! 

See 2019 as Last Draft

Most nice albums, books or movies undergo drafts or variations. Issues are thrown out. The Beatles’ White Album is filled with edits. See your life as a draft. You’re shifting to February 2019 – the ultimate minimize. What should you additionally reduce out? You’ve been ‘drafting’ since Lunar New Yr 2018. It’s time. Discard and shed, in order that no matter you’re creating (stitching a gown, mastering an internet site) is formed and crafted.

Use the Astrology Oracle

Marie Kondo writes, “Once I have to type out my ideas, I write out every little thing on my thoughts on a clean sheet of paper. I attempt to determine any tangled emotions or causes for fear or nervousness, consider an answer, then write down an motion plan on my calendar. I make sure that to make clear what points I can and can’t management.”
