Beware of the Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse

On Monday, our Yoga teacher declared that the Scorpio Full Moon on Thursday would be dominant in a turbulent week ahead. To prepare for this I worked extra hard in class, but still failed to master anything more than a downward dog...I exaggerate, I was probably more like a floppy puppy...

Nevertheless, it was reassuring to learn, that those of us who'd taken time out of our busy week to practise our yoga techniques, would be better wired to cope with the intense period of instability that was coming our way. I'm liking this class already...

....Perhaps the diagram below is not quite reflective of where I would like to be with my yoga...I would prefer my Earth to be closer to my Live...but you get the general idea...and it's hang on tight for the week ahead...

However despite all the potential for doom and disaster, it's been a good week, at least on the sporting front! Emlin won a beer mug (all the champagne glasses had gone) when her mixed doubles team won the Grand Final for Waverley and District Tennis Association B Division Senior Tennis league, Tim did his best ever round of golf, I went to Book Club having actually read the book, Man U won the English Premier League (only important to one person at our house) and we had the day off on Thursday for Anzac Day...

But there was also some other weird stuff going on and as I started telling my friends to beware the full moon on Thursday, everyone had a comment, or a moody friend or family member who was being difficult and even the nurses in hospitals were gearing up for a busy night...
So I did some more research just to check that I hadn't had one sun salutation too many, and came across the following by Elaine Kalantarian. For the full report see the following THE SCORPIO FULL MOON & LUNAR ECLIPSE

We are headed for the first eclipse of 2013...a show visible over parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

From a vibrational perspective, eclipses disrupt the normal pattern of day and night, and mark intense periods of instability. The week prior to the eclipse and for several days following, we often feel the effects most acutely. The sign in which the eclipse falls indicates the theme and message inherent in this process of recalibration of light, as well as contacts to other planets. While this week’s event is only a partial eclipse, it packs a good punch nevertheless, as the Scorpio Full Moon will conjoin Saturn and oppose Mars — a double opposition of Sun and Moon plus Mars and Saturn.
Saturn often makes things seem worse than they are, and we are in for a rather large dose. So you may already be feeling “Saturn ickiness,” possibly building since late last week. Saturn can really do a number on your self-worth — and doubly so with this Mars-Saturn opposition conjoined the **Scorpio** Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse! OY! A lunar eclipse is like a super-hyped Full Moon. Mars-Saturn in particular can bring supremely frustrating obstacles, roadblocks and delays on top of this being the Full Moon — the “emotional high tide” of the month. These are very difficult waves to surf well – it requires the patience, kindness and self-restraint of a saint. Try to remember you are not the sum total of your screw-ups and failures. You are loved no matter what, even if it is only your dog who makes this obvious. So be especially patient with yourself and others, a little love and kindness will go a long, long way this week.

Well I was kind of wary of even leaving the house this week after reading this, until I remembered there was nothing wrong with my chakras, my wiring had been fixed and after a large Ommmmmmmmmmm, off I went to brave the week...

In the end after a big build up, it was a cloudy night and our moon was a little shy. When she did appear behind the clouds she covered our garden in a bright light. Mutt went out and raced around, barking madly which we normally put down to the possums but now we are not so sure...!!

So it was good to get back to yoga today, I was looking forward to telling the teacher how my wiring was working, but unfortunately there was a replacement teacher. A grumpy yogic full of Saturn ickiness at that! "Come out from behind the post", she barked at me...ommm I muttered 'Isn't that the whole point of having weird columns in exercise classes, so that you can hide from the teacher...??'
And later in the class "Did I say right over left and twist, or left over right? You're all going different ways...What is wrong with everyone today??....IS anyone listening to me...??"

Ummm she has obviously got her full moon knickers in a twist about something, she should have come to Mondays class!!

Anyone for Tennis?

At the Australian Open qualifying tournament... 

Are you ready for the first Grand Slam of the year? The Aus Open starts next week (Monday 13th - Sunday 26 January) but Melbourne is already in full swing (ha ha) with tennis players and tennis action. 

You can pay to watch some of the top seeded Men's players in action at the Kooyong Classic, just down the road. Or, you can join me for what I say is one of the best value tennis, indeed let's say sporting tickets in the world. The Australian Open qualifying tournament (Jan 8 -11), where you can wander in for free. Yes free!

The 'Qualies' is one of the secret treasures of the Aus Open where players compete and must win matches on three consecutive days to secure one of the last remaining spots in the main draw.
For the past seven years we have been a host family for tennis players, which is how we have become so familiar with the highs and lows of this lead up event... 
So would you like a sneak peak inside Melbourne Park, whi…

Keep Calm And Birthday On!

So far I'm onto my fourth country celebrating my birthday. Usually, I don't fuss much about birthdays, I'm not one for the big girls night out, or to treat myself with a big splurge... 
But this year is different. I've moved country. I now have a new visa in my passport enabling me to stay in the Kingdom of Thailand until May 2018. I'm away from the kids and the dog and Mr Wren looked at his work calendar, scratched his head and declared a meeting with dinner on my birthday.

I thought for a moment about pulling the old 'I can't believe you've got a meeting with dinner on my birthday AND it's International Women's Day' complaint, but wait a moment, no... That's a perfect excuse to celebrate with everyone, everywhere! 
'Hey, but I thought you said  you never bothered much about birthdays...'
I can hear him call out as I am part way to booking a flight to Malaysia and using all his Airmiles for a return trip to the UK!

He's right, I&#…

Life is not about finding ourselves it is about creating ourselves! George Bernard Shaw

Cooee! It's me calling in from Thailand. Sorry, it's been a while, it's been a tad busy. Still, we've not done badly. We've moved into our temporary apartment and are well on the way to finding something more permanent. We're overlooking the American Embassy compound, which is acres of impressive greenery in amongst the high rise buildings. I love it, I can even hear the little birds sing in the morning.
So welcome to my new life as .... drum roll please, Hmmm actually, I have no bleedin’ idea, so how about Bangkok Blogger for now?
How would you feel if you were to arriving in a new country, where you know no-one, and you're not even sure what your life will entail? For me, it was a feeling of excitement, crossed with a rolling of the eyes, a smile and my 'here we go again' expression. 
Of course, this always happens Mr Wren was away travelling and so I rocked up for …
