7 things to do this New Moon in Capricorn
7 STEPS TO THE UNKNOWN
COMMUNICATE – Talk about your feelings truthfully to yourself first and then to another. Communicate them aloud to yourself, so you hear your own voice. Notice, noticing your communication. Consider your choice of words before speaking. You may find you want to bottle up your feelings or explode. You may pretend you are not hurt. What have you been ignoring for so long, and finally you are being forced to look at? Capricorn is Earth, hard and unforgiving. So be blunt with yourself. Nothing can be hidden for long. Now they will be unearthed! Be clear with your feelings with yourself in a practical way.
PRACTICAL ACTION – Take practical action that protects you. Be more proactive. Be alert. Take actions steps that will enable you to achieve your goals. Thinking of taking practical action is not the same as actually taking the practical action. Do. If you have to buy the house, buy it. If you have to pay for a course, pay for the course. If you have to set targets for the next 6 months set then and take realistic practical actions to manifest them. Work hard to achieve them.
BOUNDARIES – Create new boundaries. Say ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ to help you define your new way forward. What will you allow and what will you not allow? Be deliberate in setting up boundaries that serve you. What makes you happy? What makes you miserable? Be willing to put in work to creating your boundaries. Ask yourself these questions: Who has ‘tried’ to disempower you with the way they talked to you or text you? Who has ignored your question? Who has shown you that you are of no value to them, unless they can use you, or make money from you? 2018 is the year of strong boundaries.
PHYSICAL BODY – Look after your physical body. How does it stand, sit, rest, play? What is it physically saying to you? Does it feel strong, rooted and centered, in very balanced way? Be mindful of the blocks to your health and your physical body. Check that you are truly and really looking after your physical body. Eat. Rest. Clean. Breathe. Sleep. Exercise. Walk. Love your body. What part of your body needs your attention? Be clear about what you love about your body. Be clear about your passions. Be clear about respecting each other.
MONEY – What is your relationship with money? What is your consciousness with money? Are you spending wisely? Is money your friend or enemy? Do you feel like a victim with money? How is money serving your live? How are you serving money in your life? Are you in control or is it in control of you? Do you find you are always giving your money away and getting back little in return? Are you leveraging your money? Do you get value for the money you spend in your life? Where have you wasted money? Where have you spend money well? My favourite pajamas are very soft, old and clean. Wearing them makes me happy. I got them long long ago. I do not want to throw them away because wearing them makes me happy. There is value in my investment – it makes me happy.
BE REALISTIC – Face the truth about your situation. Look at your successes and failures. Look at the positive and negative benefits of your situation. What are you trying to ignore, that is forcing its ugly head up? Time to take your head out of the sand. Time to life up your head and look at things straight on. Be realistic with your reflections and your decisions. Work at your optimum; and notice when to stop and when to rest. Be realistic with your intention and goals. There are 6 planets (Pluto, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, Moon, Sun) in Capricorn with this New Moon: this is real and fact – not made up. Be realistic. See things as they truly are not how you want them to be.
NEWNESS – Say ‘goodbye’ to a way of being that no longer serves you. Say ‘welcome’ a new way of being. Allow your unfolding with this Capricorn New Moon. Share something of value with others. Call forth your deep inner knowing as you go boldly into the unknown. Just like Star Trek you ‘go where no man has gone before.’ What new path are you working today? What new journey are you embarking on? Perhaps new partnership? New friendships? New courses? New direction?

New Moon in Capricorn
MICRO NEW MOON Moon Gathering tonight at 7pm
Element – Earth
Here is a testimonial I received this morning. It spans exactly 2 years of coming to the Moon Alchemy Gatherings and having private and confidential sessions with me, Toks Coker. Thank you Legion of Light.
There has been so much change that I don’t know where to begin….
For myself, I have transformed my finances three times in the past 12 months. I’ve also had great strides in my job transitions. My care and compassion towards myself has expanded and I am starting to really see the value in being me for me, in being me for my family and friends, for my work and for the world. I see the unique value of who I am and the Glory of that. It’s like a golden shine coming from within me, smiling the smile of a million suns and more. Joyous exaltation :-
My awareness of my energy and my time management has improved. I am much happier in general and whenever anything negative arises within me or around me, the swiftness of changing my focus and energy has improved steadily.
My relationship with my father has transformed powerfully and deeply. The hatred I had for him has evaporated completely. I’m no longer furious with him or enraged by him. I just love him and want him to be happy. I want to spend more quality time with him and help him in any way I can. I love him and I can see myself in him. I feel like maybe I’m beginning to see my ancestors in him too. He is a good man that only ever tried to do what he thought was best.
My relationship with my mother has also transformed and continues to do so. I am learning how to respect her more. I am learning how to be a doting son, how to love her and care for her and cherish her for who she is and for being my mum. I kiss her and hug her and tell her that I love her many times throughout the day. Her support of me is tremendous. I am a lucky man.
My relationship with my brother has also improved. I see now how my attitude and tone has negatively affected our relationship in the past and I have taught myself to be much more kind and compassionate with him. I miss him and hope to see and hear from him much more often now: at least once a week.
I’ve recently met a beautiful woman and our relationship is really starting to bloom now. It’s been challenging to face and release certain aspects of my past though I am moving through it all much more seamlessly now
2017 has been a massive year and I feel like 2018 is going to be my best ever year yet!
From the Realm of Infinite Light, I thank you with deep reverence and gratitude ❤☀
WHAT IS LIFE COACHING THE ALCHEMICAL WAY?
As you journey through life, life happens. People get loved and wonderful surprises, they also get disappointed and depressed. People say cruel and kind words to each other. Some become victims and abusers. The journey to move from a space of ‘negativity’ to one of ‘positivity’ is an internal journey, that requires patience, understanding, compassion, wisdom and self-love on a profound level.
Life Coaching the Alchemical Way is the Way of the Shaman. The Journey you take as a Seeker. It is the Hero’s Journey, allowing your very own Alchemical Resurrection of your True Self. This means it anchors with you the power to rise to be more. To be your own true authentic self, no matter what you have been through.
Life Coaching the Alchemical Way is the Steps of Creation, that lead you to BEING MORE. It is the calling of your Divine Self to manifest consciously here on earth with. It helps you anchor your Spiritual Legacy. It helps you find clarity and grounding in your life. It helps you to come back home to yourself, using proven tools that nourish mind, body and spirit. This is active participation in your own healing and transformation.
Let’s ask you some questions? Are you are feeling lost, confused or exhausted? Are you tired of being taken for granted? Do you feel it is time to set up some new boundaries in your life? Are you wanting your power back? Do you find you keep repeating the same old patterns? Do you find it difficult to relax and turn off?
More questions: Are you feeling dull and lethargic? Do you feel life is always better for others, but not for you? Do you think you should be the one on stage, but you find yourself back stage? Are you always ignored? Do you feel isolated, lonely and separate? Do you feel out of body and ungrounded and unstable? Do you think the grass is always greener on the other side? Would you like to shine like a precious diamond? Have you felt suicidal and wishing your life was over?
Life Coaching the Alchemical Way is a very specific way of working on yourself and with yourself. It asks you to journey out; and come back home to yourself; fresh, anew and reborn. In the sessions you will experience an Alchemical Resurrection of your True Self, which will set you free and liberate you, from any chains of restriction, resistance and blockages.
Turning ‘poison’ to ‘medicine’ is the way of the Alchemist. Learning to work with your own Alchemy can be a challenge, as you learn to refine your limiting beliefs, resentments, doubts, fears. Sessions are geared and tailed individually for each person to create a refinement in behaviour, attitude, personality and character. A personal journey, a labyrinth that you navigate, as you redefine your new way forward, to your great results. Face the unknown with ease and confidence in any area of your life.
Life Coaching the Alchemical Way helps you calm your mind, empowering you to see clearly in a practical and constructive way. It enables you to see your value and strengths, as well as, your limiting beliefs and fear. The main purpose is to help you find deep lasting happiness. Are you ready for this?
Did you know that the Miracle of Life is knowing who to ask for help, and when to ask for help? Whether working with you alone, as a couple, or in a group, I remain connect to Source, centred, united and at One. From this sacred space I serve you, tailoring the sessions especially for you. I promise to serve you always with balance, reverence and love.

Distant Healing – Shamanic Healing with Hands of Light
WHAT IS DISTANT HEALING?
Distant Healing is the ability to send healing to a person who is not in front of you. It is sent via the Cosmos – the Universe – no matter how far away the person is from you, the Healer or person sending healing to them.
The Healer is sending Distant Healing across time and space, which travels at a very fast rate. Distant Healing is sent and Distant Healing is received.
It is know by many names such as Remote Healing, Distant Healing and Absent Healing.
WHO CAN RECEIVE DISTANT HEALING?
Distant Healing can be given to animals, plants and people.
WHO CAN ASK FOR DISTANT HEALING?
Anyone can ask for Distant Healing. A sick person in hospital or at home. A tired person after a days work. A restless person needing to sleep. A mother who has a quiet moment and needs to relax before her children come back from school or her baby wakes up. Any person who is stressed, tense and overwhelmed with their life at work or home.
WHEN SHOULD DISTANT HEALING BE SENT?
Distant Healing should be sent when a person has asked for it. Sometimes a friend or family member may ask for Distant Healing to be sent to a loved one. This is OK if the person receiving the Distant Healing agrees to it. If the person does not agree to it – then really healing should not be sent. You do not want to impose on a person if they do not want to receive Distant Healing from you.
WHAT TIME SHOULD ONE RECEIVE DISTANT HEALING?
Distant Healing can be sent at any time – morning, afternoon, or evening.
It is a good thing to agree a time for Distant Healing to be sent and received. You can do this via telephone, email or Skype.
Distant Healing should be sent at a time the person receiving the Distant Healing has agreed to receive it.
It is always a good idea to agree a time they will receive the Distant Healing so they are prepared to receive. Also the Healer know when to start sending Distant Healing.
WHO CAN SEND DISTANT HEALING?
Anyone who has been trained can send Distant Healing. Anyone who FEELS the desire to send Distant Healing can do so IF they have a pure intent and they have carried out certain guidelines. It is a good idea to know what you are doing rather than to guess. On a strict note – only a qualified healer who has been trained properly to send Distant Healing should send Distant Healing.
WHAT KIND OF GUIDELINES FOR SENDING DISTANT HEALING?
Make sure the person you are sending Distant Healing has agreed to receive the healing.
They should be resting on the bed or sitting on a chair when you are sending the healing.
They should not be driving or in an office working.
WARNING: Distant Healing can cause a person to have an accident if they are driving as the healing could make them feel relaxed and sleepy. This is why it is important to make sure a time and space is agreed.
WHAT IS PREPARATION FOR THE HEALER?
Some basic guidelines are carried out to prepare yourself to send healing. It you have been properly trained you will know what they are. You prepare yourself as a healer:
YOU GROUND YOUR ENERGY.
YOU LINK TO DIVINE.
YOU FLOW THE ENERGY THROUGH YOU.
It is so important to make sure you are very well grounded and linked to Source Energy and you FEEL the Energy flowing through you.
There are a few other things you do but this is the basic before you do anything.
WHAT IS THE PREPARATION FOR THE CLIENT WHO WANTS DISTANT HEALING?
The person needs to be in a space without interruption so they can receive the Distant Healing. No phones. No social media pings. No disturbance or distraction.
They can lie in bed or sit on a chair. If they can and they want, they can light a candle or have relaxing music playing in the background.
They must always have a glass of water ready to drink after the session. Some like to drink water or tea before the session. Others after the session. I advise no alcohol or coffee as these are stimulants.
WARNING – Make sure your candle is safely burning. If you will fall asleep and there is not one to switch off the candle – then please do not burn a candle if you are the only one in the room – and you may fall asleep.
HOW DO YOU SEND THE DISTANT HEALING?
You connect to the Divine Energy and send Distant Healing directly from the Divine Energy to the person. And/Or You connect to the Divine Energy and you send Diving Healing through you, to the person receiving Distant Healing.
There are various types of Distant Healing using other tools and instruments.
The Healer can use Singing Crystal Bowls, Prayer, and Meditation to send Distant Healing. The Healer must have a very very very Strong Intention and Powerful Focus.
Distant Healing can be sent combining it with Quantum Healing, Reiki Healing, Crystal Healing, Sound Healing, Pranic Healing, Quantum Healing, Theta Healing, and Light Language. Please make sure the Healer knows what they are doing.
Distant Healing is used in many religions such as Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Christianity. Some of them chant, pray, sing, meditate and do rituals for Distant Healing. For example the Christians pray. Buddhist chant: Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. Hindus chant: Om.
EFFECTS DURING DISTANT HEALING
There are various effects from receiving Distant Healing. The person receiving Distant Healing may or may not feel anything. Some may feel a lot of feelings, tingling or sensations. Some may see colours, images, messages, insight and angels. Each persons experience is unique to them.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DISTANT HEALING?
There are many benefits of Distant Healing. As mentioned earlier, each person’s experience is individual and specific to them. Some have reported feeling more relaxed and more peaceful. Some experience sleeping better or peacefully for the first time. Some feel calmer, get more clarity and feel a sense of hope sweep through them.
WHERE CAN I ASK FOR FREE DISTANT HEALING? WHEN CAN I GET FREE DISTANT HEALING?
Every New Moon and Full Moon Toks sends Distant Healing to those who have asked for Distant Healing. Every New Moon and Full Moon she sends Distant Healing FREE for 3 nights in a row from the HANDS OF LIGHT HEALING PORTAL. This is ONLY at this specific time. Here is the link.

WHERE CAN I PAY FOR DISTANT HEALING?
If you want more specific healing and more intensive healing you can pay for DISTANT HEALING to be sent to you at an agreed time and date that suits you. Two things you have to do: (1) You pay upfront before you receive the Distant Healing. (2) You contact Toks to agree a time and date you want to receive the Distant Healing.

Here is a Testimonial: “What a magical event. A lot was done in the few short hours that we were together and it all flowed together seamlessly. The exercises of gathering our power and energy created a palpable atmosphere and the sense of connection that was created between everybody as we welcomed in the New Year made the evening perfect.

See you there!
21 December is Winter Solstice.
This is an ancient ritual celebrated world wide.
Here in UK, it is a a very important Pagan / Wiccan ritual. You can find the Druids on Primrose Hill during the Solstice. They believe in the cycle of life, revolving around the seasons, the sun and the moon.
It used to be known as Yule, from the Norse, Jul, meaning WHEEL. IT IS NOT A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION.
‘Solstice’ means ‘Sun stands Still’.
BEGINNING OF WINTER: The Winter Solstice marks the first day of Winter and is the shortest. Days start to get longer and nights shorter around this time.
It is the start of the Solar Year, the NEW SOLAR YEAR. It is the celebration of LIGHT and the REBIRTH of the SUN.
The Northern Hemisphere (where London is) is leaning, the most away, from the sun for the year. While we have the Winter Solstice, in the North, the South has the Summer Solstice.
So much happening as mentioned earlier in my last post. This really is a potent time on many levels. Let us take them one by one.
Message of Winter Solstice
As someone who has brought so many profoundly beautiful gifts into my life this year I offer you these few thoughts…
As I’m sure you know, In the pagan tradition, the Winter Solstice starts at sunset tonight (20 December); when The Great Mother, in her Wise Elder Crone aspect, prepares to release her Golden Sun back towards the Earth.
Here tonight, starts the turning of the year, the weaving of the cocoon web of Yule, the chrysalis that will contain us, for the next 12 days, as we prepare for, the return of the Light.
It is an hermetic time where we are encouraged to turn inwards and examine and honour all we have achieved this year, including the hard-won wounds and fought-for victories.
And it is particularly, tonight, the longest darkest night of the year, that She is in her fiercest aspect; and in many Wytches homes there is the gathering up, of all that symbolises what we wish to leave behind in the dark soils of our life – for the great mulching that begins at dawn tomorrow: the turning of all the ‘negativity’ we’ve been through over the past few months, into the manure from which new seeds will grow next year.
It is particularly powerful to take photographs or papers that represent that or those who no longer serve us and burn them on the hearth.
I cannot begin to thank you enough for all the lessons you have brought and continue to bring to me: of kindness, forgiveness, spiritual authority, honouring, sacred family. You are my divine mother and I love you in the deepest possible way….
ENERGY OF SOSTICE
- A time to go within and gestate the seeds of a new cycle.
- It is a new breath, a new life.
- Time for deep inner reflection.
- The most mystical time of the year.
- More transformation and shifts.
- More change and movement.
- More flow and connection to the rhythm of life.
- A time to connect with Mother Nature.
Just like the Energy of the New Moon in Sagittarius this is a Time of Truth. Do you tell the Truth honestly and kindly or cruelly? Truths may to told in a way that deliberately harms another. Are you harming another deliberately by telling the truth? Or are you ignoring the Truth and Lying?
As mentioned on the New Moon Truth can be delivered straight as an Arrow, it can hurt or it can bring joy. The way a Truth is delivered is very important. A Truth that is delivered with cruelty stings directly at the heart. The same Truth delivered with Love will still hurt but perhaps the sting will be felt less cruelly.
We journey into the Darkness, as the Lights goes underground. This could be the journey back to your mother’s womb or long before you were born or conceived.
THINGS TO DO
Meditate on the Winter Solstice Eve and Meditate on the Winter Solstice. On the Eve of Winter Solstice you can meditate in the actual dark at night and welcome in the actual time of the Sunlight, Sunset. If you cannot stay up to the actual Sunset, simply meditate in the dark, then light a candle to represent the Sun Set – the BIRTH OF THE SUN. Meditate on World Peace.
- Pray and give thanks.
- Singing songs, chanting, and invoking appreciation, praise and joy (Pagan way).
- Playing Music with drums, rattles, etc.
- Sitting in a tree and meditating in silence with the tree.
- Create an altar with sacred symbols e.g an alter in the shape of the PENTAGRAM. Use electric lights (blue and white lights) in the shape of a Pentagram.
- Work with Sacred Pagan / Wiccan Symbols like Triple Goddess symbol of waxing, full and waning moon. We have the maiden, the mother and the crone
WITH THE GODS
Honour the Gods – The divine couple in Wicca, with the Lady as Diana, the moon goddess, and the Lord as Pan, the horned god of the wild Earth. The lower figure is Mercury or Hermes, the god or divine force of magic – as shown by his wings and caduceus.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiccan_views_of_divinity
Remember the Gods that remind us of Father Christmas – Thor, the Norse Sky God who rides the sky with his goats, Frey, the Norse Fertility God, Tomte, the Norse Land Spirit who gives gifts to children. Here are other Gods Roman Agricultural God: Saturn, Greek God: Cronos / Father Time, Celtic God of the Dying Year: the Holly King, Russian Winter God: Father Ice / Grandfather Frost, Scandinavian / Teutonic All-Father God: Odin / Wotan, who rides sky on 8-legged horse! Herne is the Celtic Horned God reminds us of Santa’s reindeers.

WITH MOTHER EARTH (Wood) and FIRE and AIR and WATER
- Burn a log outside your home or in your fireplace if you have one.
- Sit round the Fire Circle outside burning a log of wood e.g. oak
- Gather round the Fire, eat, drink, talk, sing, dance, stay warm.
- It is believed that you save a bit of the log to start next year’s fire.
WITH PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL
- Gather together – friends and family
- Celebrate with others – eat, drink, sing, play music, dance, etc.
- Gifting of Gifts – giving and receiving
- Meet up, call, phone, email, text. For me, I prefer to meet up, if possible, with those near and dear.
- Express gratitude and appreciation to loved ones and people who have helped you. Remember Gratitude is very important.
- Ponder the good and bad experiences you have had all year and reflect on the lessons learnt.
- FOR RELEASING: It is particularly powerful to take photographs or papers, that represent that or those who no longer serve us, and burn them on the hearth.
- Give to poor, shelters – food, clothes, money
- Volunteer at Charity
- Offer someone space to sleep in your home if you can
- Cook for poor and give them
- Teach to write CV, fill up CV form
- Decorate the house with flowers, herbs and colours.
- Decorate your home in colours such as red, green and white.
- Decorate the home with electric lights
- Place holly, ivy, evergreen boughs, pine cones around your home.
- Hand mistletoe above a major threshold and leave it there all year long to bring in good luck and good fortune.
- Make or purchase an evergreen wreath and put on your front door to symbolise continuity of life and the wheel of life.
- You may already have a real live tree – a harvested evergreen tree – which you could use as a Solstice Tree and decorate with Pagan symbols.
WITH ANIMAL: HORSE
As I came to the end of this topic, the picture of this White Horse came up to say hello. It seemed to what to be included here with the Winter Solstice.
In Norse mythology Odin, Father of All Gods, rides a horse with 8 legs, called Slejpnir.
The White Horse is ridden by Epona, a Mother Goddess for the British and Celtics. The name of the Druid Animal Totem Horse is EACH. Horses have powerful and magical meaning with the Wicca. It is time to journey this Winter Solstice. In the physical world and in the inner world. Horse is quick, decisive, and fast. Horse brings energy and speed to your endeavours. EACH connects us to the Power of Land and Sun.
Each works with Epona, and, collectively and individually, they complete LIFE-CYCLE of BIRTH, DEATH, the AFTERLIFE and REBIRTH. EACH helps us to look at our areas of RESTLESSNESS and helps to balance any unease we have or restlessness we have in a given situation. Horse is sacred medicine bringing good luck and good fortune. It protects us from the evil eye of others and situations.
EPONA rides a white horse. In Rome she is worshiped on December 18. The New Moon in Sagittarius was a few days ago, 18 December. Interesting she should come up here. In Welsh tradition she is Rhiannon. In Ireland she is Macha and Etain.
EPONA IS A PROTECTRESS. she is the MOTHER-GODDESS. She presides over life cycles. She holds a KEY to unlock the GATEWAYS to the UNDERWORLD or OTHERWORLD. She shape shifts and turns into a horse and carries the Soul of the Dead across to paradise.
In Summer, the GATEWAY is the Gateway of Birth. Epona opens the Gates of Life at Beltane, allowing a flood of energy to come though. In Winter, it is the Gateway of Death – It is the Gateway of the Soul to leave the Earth – the Souls are carried to the AFTERLIFE, back to the Summerland to be RENEWED again. We see here again the life cycle of BIRTH, DEATH, AFTERLIFE, REBIRTH.
I hope you have enjoyed this read. It has taken me on a long journey full of intrigue and aspirations. So many cultures and religions are intertwined and have cross-influences every time. We really are ALL ONE. There is so much more on this topic, but I stop here. What are you going to do this Winter Solstice? Make sure you enjoy it. Are you going to do one of the above things mentioned? We are.

Quote: “They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” Mexican Proverb
Symbol: Archer (you as the Archer with your Bow and Arrow)
BOW AND ARROW: Which way do you want to aim your Bow? Up, Down, Straight, Left, Right? The choice is yours. It is, after all, your Bow and Arrow.
Take the Bow and Arrow and take control of your life. Aim the Bow and Shoot the Arrow to your Desires, Wishes, Goals and Wants. You Aim your Arrow in a straight direction and shoot. Mr Spock says it is logical and possible.
TRUTH: New Moon in Sagittarius is about being Truthful. In order to be effective, Truth must penetrate like an Arrow…..and it is likely to hurt.
WHERE: This New Moon Alchemy Workshop is about finding time to honour yourself and where you are right now. Are you ready to face where you are now? And look to where you want to be?
CHANGES: With all the changes and transformations happening, this is an important time to centre yourself and balance your Chakras. Come gather in a sacred space to help you balance your life on a very deep emotional, physical, physiological, mental and spiritual level.
BEGINNINGS: This is a potent time to invite in and honour the beginning of new things in your life. A time to start again. A time to refresh and look at your life in a new way. A time of new beginnings. This does not mean you throw away anything ‘old’. It means you look at your life in a precise way and realise what needs to be renewed, cleaned, thrown away and requires going back to the drawing board.
