Card from the Mystical Shaman Oracle (Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid and Marcela Lobos)
Many of us are strongly affected by the lunar cycle and the energy of the moon. Do you notice how your mood, energy levels, emotions, sleep patterns and even sometimes physical sensations are influenced by where the moon is in her cycle? Every month at the New Moon and the Full Moon, I create a channelled Vocal Sounding - a 'Lunar Sounding' to work with the moon's energy (and other astrological alignments) at that specific time.
These Soundings can help to balance or harmonise any challenging vibrations that we might be feeling uncomfortable with due to the New or Full Moon. They can also assist us to harness the energy to create shift and opportunity, should that be appropriate and desired!
Before channelling a Lunar Sounding, I always select an oracle card with the intention of getting to the core.... the (hidden) potential available from working with this particular Sounding at this specific time.... often the opportunities that are presented by the unique combination of this Channelled Sound and these astrological alignments can be surprising!

New Moon Eclipse in Gemini June 2021
Hello Friends, and welcome to June!
Here in the UK we have been blessed with some beautiful days of sunshine, which I have enjoyed so much when I have been able to go out and enjoy it. Since the Full Moon Eclipse, I have felt the need to slow right down and exercise as much self-care as possible…. enjoying spending time outdoors, cooking and baking, reading and all of those things that help me to feel more human and grounded!
This week we have a second Eclipse with the Gemini New Moon, and so continue to ride some pretty intense energetic waves.
Gemini is a very ‘heady’ energy, with so much emphasis on information, thinking, mental processes and communication. As a Gemini myself, my head is feeling somewhat overwhelmed at present (!), which perhaps is what is triggering the need for slowing down and engaging in activities that don’t require much thought….
“It seems as if this Moon could involve a lot of mental energy and output, which could potentially overwhelm and confuse us. Neptune’s involvement could bring extreme sensitivity, confusion, brain fog, overwhelm, wishful thinking and even downright deception, but could also bring inspiration, higher understanding and true connection, urging us to step back and tune in to find the answers we seek. Not to mention that the ruler of this Moon, Mercury, is retrograde! This means that nothing is completely straightforward and that this is more a time of reflection, retrospection and introspection than making concrete decisions on how to proceed.” (Amy Bird Astrology)
I have been looking forward to this Lunar Sounding, and working with Sound over this Eclipse period, as I know this energy affects me so personally. New Moons are very much about planting seeds and setting intentions, so I was curious to see what would come through…… it’s very challenging to make plans and set clear intentions in a state of brain fog and mental overwhelm!
I selected a card from the Mystical Shaman Oracle (Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid and Marcela Lobos) to gain some further insight into the deeper meaning for this Sounding, and discovered ‘Flow’. This selection made me smile as Flow is not something Gemini energy is particularly known for. Scattered and difficult to in down…. Yes, Flow…. Not so much!
So, whatever you are experiencing during this New Moon Eclipse, I would suggest that this Sounding may help you Flow though it. Whatever way and on whatever level you are feeling it. Geminis are typically ‘over thinkers’, so perhaps during this intense Gemini Eclipse period we could all benefit from getting out of our heads a bit more….. and focussing on our physical bodies. Considering the Flow card stepped forward, perhaps being in or near Water may also be helpful at this time.

This channelled sound experience is just under 20 minutes long, and is primarily vocal….. with some singing bowls, rattle and chimes in support. There is also some light language within too, for those of you that enjoy this. I added additional voice to this Sounding, which always adds an interesting layer to the experience…. And feels very aligned with the duality of the Gemini expression. I hope that you enjoy it…. This is one my favourite Lunar Soundings for a while. My experience with it so far is a deep gentleness, which my overwhelmed head/brain is very grateful for!
Wishing you a magical New Moon Eclipse….. I hope that you flow through it with grace and ease.
The New Moon is Thursday 10 June:

How to Listen
Please listen in a comfortable position, ideally sitting or lying down in a time/space where you aren't likely to be disturbed. I recommend wearing headphones for a more personal experience, but please use your own intuition. You may wish to keep a notebook or journal to hand, so that you can make a note of any insight you receive, or jot down anything about your experience that you might wish to remember.
Please be gentle with yourself after listening. If you feel ungrounded please drink some water and perhaps eat something. Going into nature will help too.
Please don't listen whilst driving or operating machinery.
You may work with this recording as often as you feel drawn to. A guideline would be once a day until the New or Full Moon, or even a day or two afterwards if you feel it is still benefitting you. Sometimes people listen just once and intuitively know that the Sounding has done what it needed to. There is no right or wrong way to work with these Lunar Soundings - please just do what feels right for you.
