Pluto Square Chiron – Pain With a Purpose

Chiron is an asteroid known as the wounded healer. It symbolises a person’s core wound, where when you have healed it to some degree, you can help others with similar issues. You may never be able to fully resolve it, but as you understand it and work through it holds less power. Each time it is triggered, you have the chance to grow and clear old pain.

It is brought to the surface for everyone at around the age 50, when we go through the Chiron return (Chiron returning to its natal placement). However it is also triggered when an outer planet aspects it.

Today, stationing Pluto squared my natal Chiron and that’s not much fun. It translates very basically as change your life NOW to resolve your deepest pain.

Pluto burns to the ground what needs to go, so that the phoenix can rise again. It always works out in your favour if you don’t resist it, and Pluto however painful, makes you feel alive.

Processing Pain and Transitioning Through Art

My art has been interesting this weekend. The 3 pictures below are all the same image – as it progressed:  

Clearly a fair few creative steps are not shown here, but I was interested in how the painting went from dark to beautiful – not intentionally. I threw paint, varnish, blowtorched wax and made a right mess 😊 I put all my feelings into this picture.

It is unrecognisable from how it started and shows a healing process. It could also be described as applying a beautiful mask to a situation that is not yet resolved.

I then went on to work on my intentions for change. This also morphed considerably and isn’t finished, but it doesn’t need to be, it's not time yet.  It incorporated many herbs, to assist setting and sealing my intentions. The mediative process was the point.

These pictures are raw and unprocessed. They are not supposed to be hung on the wall. They are real, not pretty. All therapeutic art should be destroyed as it contains the emotions you are releasing.

I now feel clearer and am sharing this because I have used art since early in life to shift energy and hope it may inspire you to try it yourself.

If you are going through heavy emotions, I recommend a few ways to process them:

  1. First of all be kind to yourself and follow your energy. Practice self-care. It’s ok to sleep all day, say no, spend time alone or do whatever you feel like. BTW this applies all the time, if you aren’t feeling great. You are the only person who can really take care of you, and if you do, you then have more to give to others.
  2. Get the darkness out. I painted all day today – they actually look quite pretty but they have layers of emotion buried within them and are not pictures to keep.
  3. Journaling is also therapeutic; it moves the energy out and you can reflect on it later. No send letters can also move rage and anger without hurting another.
  4. Exercise – sometimes just moving your body helps to shift a negative mood – especially when the sun is shining.
  5. Talk to a friend. It’s hard when you are a little down, but a different perspective can sometimes move you the next step along. Small steps in the right direction lead you gradually to the next phase.

If you want to try this process in a safe space, I offer therapeutic art sessions, incorporating Reiki drumming to take you into a deeply relaxed space. Then from within a well equipped art studio, you can express your emotions in your own way. It does not include any psycho-analysis – just emotional release with a qualified therapist who can support you. You don't have to be good at art either, your finished work is for ‘for your eyes only’ unless you wish to share it.

I just wanted to tell you that the friend Kathy H whom I was uncertain about actually sent me a text 5 minutes after we had finished talking!!!! So we must have energised the link!!! And your wisdom to help me learn more also is good. I'm meeting her on Saturday, and we'll have a coffee etc.

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.
Thankyou !

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
