The Shaman's Last Apprentice Book
“When I was young and free
And my imagination has no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser,
I discovered the world would not change,
So I shortened my sights somewhat
And decided to change only my country
But it seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years,
In one last desperate attempt,
I settled for changing only my family,
Those closest to me, but alas,
They would have none of it.
And now as I lay on my deathbed,
I suddenly realise:
If I had only changed myself first,
Then by example I might have changed my family
From their inspiration and encouragement,
I would then have been able to better my country
And who knows, I may have even changed the world.
~ Anglican bishop (1100AD), buried in the crypts of Westminster Abbey in London:
SCORPIO FULL MOON
For the last few months many of us have been going through the final stages of transmutation, as the person that we really are can no longer remain hidden deep inside. Especially the last few weeks, which have helped us break through the fears that have been holding us back, and enabled us to recognise that our very burdens were actually our blessings in disguise.
This coming Scorpio full moon is turning up the heat once again to ensure we are aware of all the shadow parts of ourselves, in order to shine more brightly. Change is a scary thing and most of us would rather hold on to what we know than dive into the unknown for something better. Now we are breaking through the fear, Scorpio is asking us to plunge down into our inner depths to reveal what is truly happening, to be able to assist the change.
This is the time for getting intimate with ourselves so we can hear our inner desires and do the right thing. Empowerment comes when we are being who we truly are without compromising. This moon helps us to let go of being the victim of circumstance and face up to reality. The last few months will have given you more courage to enable you to really follow your deepest desires. It is now testing us to see whether our emotions are in balance so we can do what is best for us.
The innovative energy of the Taurus new moon helped us get in tune with our creativity and passions and many of us have seen some significant movement and action over the last two weeks. Now any barriers or blocks that are still holding us back can be resolved during this Scorpio full Moon, propelling us even further forward.
The feminine energy of Scorpio is ruled by Mars, the warrior planet that supports us with courage and strength in going to the emotional and spiritual depths that a Scorpio full moon can take us to. Mars is our protector, helping us to stand up for ourselves and be in our power, but can also become the aggressor and violent if provoked.
Feelings and emotions that have been coming up for you over the last few weeks can have their completion during this full moon cycle, especially in relationships, which can naturally come to an end over this period, and new ones are sparked or cemented.
However, be aware that under a Scorpio full moon you may find yourself becoming obsessive about an issue, expecially if it has been around for a while and needs resolution. Use the energy of the sun in Taurus to find the confidence, patience and resilience to resolve it without losing control and sparking a war.
Mars is going direct on 19th May which will smooth things out and make things less bumpy but try Walnut Bach remedy if you are feeling unsettled, or Holly Bach remedy if feelings of revenge and jealousy are over powering and you are feeling out of control.
Secrets always seem to be revealed over this period both on a personal level and more publically, especially with those in the media., Don't be surprised if what you have been hiding suddenly comes out into the light. Likewise, if there is something that needs to be aired, this is the moon that can illuminate it, whether you are ready or not.
This moon isn't all about emotional turmoil, Scorpio is the most exciting and romantic sign of the zodiac so make some time to enjoy the passionate depths and explore the more sensual, adventurous side of this moon. Eat good food, drink fine wine, spend quality time with close friends and your loved one and allow the more pleasureable side of life guide you safely through this potentially turbulent time by focusing on all the blessings that are happening right now!.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words of George Bernard Shaw:
“This is true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy .I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
Love, Peace and Blessings

FULL MOON RITUAL
Scorpio is a water sign so to honour this moon find some water and share your dreams and goals with the water spirits. Find a stone and whisper your commitment to yourself into it. This is something you are going to do for yourself, breaking through all the fear and worry that is stopping you and finding the strength to do something that brings you more aligned to yourself. Throw the stone into the water as a commitment to yourself to be true to who you are.
Let go and do something a bit wild and carefree over this full Moon. Take the risk and be intimate, tell someone how you feel about them. Show your vulnerable side and ask for what you want and need asking friends and loved ones for help.
If you are finding this moon very turbulent and dark, start writing a gratitude journal every evening before you go to bed. This reminds us how blessed we are, even when things are tough.
Every day for the next two weeks get intimate and naked with yourself. Look deeply into a full length mirror and tell yourself that you are sexy and gorgeous, breaking through any resistence to loving yourself. Really acknowledge and love your body for two weeks. I always massage shea butter every morning in front of the mirror and thank each part of my body. It’s very grounding and nuturing, igniting the attitude of gratitude, as well as bringing me back into my body.
MARS RETROGRADE - 1st March - 19th May
Mars is retrograde in Libra, the sign of balance from 1st March until May 19th. During this period things may feel as if they are slowing down again, as we are given a further opportunity to clear away the dross and lighten our lives. Rocky relationships, work arrangements and agreements can dissolve over this period, as it becomes harder to turn a blind eye to what is happening.
We also become more aware of our actions and responses and see where we are imbalanced so we can consciously begin righting any wrongs that we may have committed or where we are not serving ourselves. It enables us to find compassion and empathy, rather than anger and indifference so we can recognise the discord and disharmony both in our lives and in the world. We are being coerced to participate so we can decide what part we want to play in the unfolding story of humanity.

“Using a soul retrieval process, we met the people who were carrying pieces of my life force energy with them. As I journeyed towards the people who were connected to my feelings of stuck energy, I felt very safe. I could hear her shamanic rattle accompanying me everywhere I visited, releasing stuck energy and returning it to my body” R. Henderson
Using various shamanic practices learnt over fifteen years after apprenticing to a Peruvian Shaman in the Amazon, My aim is to empower you to find your own inner answers, giving you the courage, faith and support to discover your passion, reignite your creativity, follow your dreams and boldly leap into your future.
When we choose to take personal responsibility for our actions, we understand it’s up to us to make the changes that we want to see in our life, and not need to rely on others, or the external world to change. Life effortlessly becomes more loving, happy and harmonious.

'I'd never had a Tarot reading before, and despite a little 'left-brain' sceptical resistance, I followed my feeling to seek one with Rebekah. After all, for several years now, I have resonated strongly with, and received huge comfort and help from, her bi-monthly Lunascopes. Because of circumstance/synchronicity, we did the reading via Skype and, technical hitches aside, it actually added to the experience of following intuition; I think this was because, when the video camera conked out, I had to feel much more than relying on visual instinct in choosing the cards. I completely trusted in Rebekah's confident, upbeat and skilled approach. She shows the true hallmarks of a professional in that I felt I was her complete focus, while knowing that she offers assistance and guidance to many on a regular basis. The pointers the cards I 'chose' gave and her knowledgeable interpretations, were immensely helpful and spot on, grounding me more firmly in the present and accepting certain things that are unfolding in my life. If you feel drawn to work with Rebekah, honour that feeling and follow through. It was so worth it!'
Rob Hilder, UK
“I've let quite a few moons pass since we met in Jan but I wanted to thank you for the insightful reading. Time and time again, I think back to the messages you passed on and the beautiful images of Osho's tarot deck vividly bring them home in my mind. I feel they are very important for my journey and that they will continue to serve me well as I navigate some important changes this year.” Thank you and may your gifts continue to serve many!
My reading with Rebekah was both insightful and accurate. I booked the reading with the intention of gaining clarity around myself and my work and that is exactly what I got. I recommend Rebekah whether you are a novice to "Osho" tarot readings or not. You will get a spiritual direction that cuts through the veil of superficial psychic readings – Rafah Sabbah (UK).
'Thanks so much for the reading Rebekah. I really feel that you were very intuitive and experienced with your interpretation of the cards, and I have come away with a much greater sense of clarity regarding what I need to do next in my life, to get me to the next stage of my life. It was a really worthwhile experience.' ~ Helen (Australia)
“It was a real pleasure working/playing with you today. I could feel the connection between us and the universal energy and i feel we did something that I hope can be a springboard into the new reality I have been aiming to manifest for a while now.” ~ Matt UK
THE SHAMAN'S LAST APPRENTICE - BUY IT HERE
My self-published book is the true story about how I became the Shaman’s Last Apprentice.
It takes the reader from the Andes Mountains of Machu Picchu, where I was working in a hotel, to the Amazon rainforest where I found Don Juanito, an old traditional and local Ayahuasquero Shaman nestled in a tiny village deep in the heart of the Amazon.
The book gives detailed accounts of my breakdown in Machu Picchu, the vision I received that set me on the path, the miracles that led me to finding the Shaman, my secret love affair, local life in the Amazon and the sacred Ayahuasca tradition of the Peruvian Jungle; how it’s prepared, the ceremonies, the visions I experienced and how it awakened me to how we are a part of nature and not apart from it. It is full of inspirational messages from the shaman and my time in the Amazon.
It is a unique book taken from my diary and recorded so that I can share my experience with you and inspire you on your own path of self discovery.
Packed with reflections and insights….a charming and engrossing true story – The Weekly Telegraph (International, UK Derived).

Some Info About Me..
This Lunascope is inspired to help us to become realigned with the Rhythm of the Planet, through flowing with the natural cycles of the year and the eight Ancient Festivals of celebration that mark and define our annual cycle. The more we live within the natural flow, the more magic and harmony we will experience in our lives.
In 1998, while working in Peru, I was called by a Shaman in a vision that he had the answers to some of the questions I had about my existence and reason for why I am on the planet. So I flew to the Amazon and found the Shaman nestled in a tiny village deep in the Amazon Jungle. While living with him and his family I experienced first-hand that we are a part of, not apart from, Mother Earth and all life forms and Nature is a symbiotic partner for our survival. By destroying our natural world, we are destroying ourselves, and quickly.
We have been bamboozled by a corrupt calendar and even more corrupt concept of time. Through concepts like ‘time is money,’ we have gradually forgotten our symbiotic relationship with the Earth and natural environments. Indigenous communities, since time began had a higher vision for humanity and the Earth.
I have also written a book, ‘The Shaman’s Last Apprentice,’ about my experiences in Peru that contains messages I received from my teacher Don Juanito and Ayahuasca. It’s available to buy at my website www.rebekahshaman.com
