Week Ahead – Monday, January 20th through Sunday, January 26th

  • Posted on January 19, 2020 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! This month sure does seem to be zipping by! On the plus side, it’s bringing us closer to longer days and warmer weather. Today, we have an adventurous Sagittarius Moon in play. This lunar mood is very adventurous, active and restless for exploration. We want to experience life first hand. we want to get outdoors, see the sights, connect with nature, go places we haven’t been before. We just need to be careful of Sagittarius’ risk-taking qualities. Let’s see what this week has in store for us!

MONDAY

Happy Solar Return to all of you Aquarian’s out there! The Sun moves into Aquarius today, so the focus for the next 4 weeks is on freedom and being drawn to things out of the ordinary. It’s also a good time for group projects and humanitarian causes. We also have a trine between Venus and the North Lunar Node which makes us feel more comfortable in our own skin and with the social world around us. This is a really good time for saving or spending resources if done wisely.

TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course and remain that way until early Wednesday. Other than that, Tuesday is a fairly quiet day for us. As we wake on Wednesday morning, the Moon will have shifted into Capricorn. Capricorn’s energy is good for taking on activities that require discipline and responsibility. It can help us to push past any difficult obstacles as well. The Sun will also be interacting with Chiron today, in a harmonious trine that allows the Sun to shed light on old wounds that we need to let go of.

THURSDAY

Today brings us a bit of a challenge with the Sun squaring up to Uranus. It’s not a good day for forcing ultimatums or taking on a “my way or the highway” stance. This is a transit that can bring shake-ups and wake up calls, so be ready for the start of some changes. It can feel unsettling for some but we need to clear some space for new growth. We also have a sextile between Venus and Jupiter later in the day, which is great for bringing creative inspiration our way. It’s a lucky aspect that can feel like what we need is coming our way. Just remember that we still need to work for what we want.

FRIDAY

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon will go Void of Course until the early afternoon. It then moves into Aquarius and enters it’s New Moon lunation. This is a really great New Moon for reaching out to old friends, as well as mingling with new groups. It’s also at a point where the transition happens. We may feel as if we are poised on the brink of change, or find that spark we need to push us forward towards those last few steps we need to take.

WEEKEND

Saturday starts Chinese New year, and it’s the year of the Rat, which is considered to be an industrious energy. The positive focus is on the career aspect of our lives in a Rat year. The Rat is the first sign of the Chinese Zodiac like Aries is for Western astrology. We have Mercury sextile Mars today, which can have our ideas and words coming out so fast that we don’t have time to actually think about how to best say them. It’s a good time for creative problem solving though. The Moon will go Void of Course in the early evening on Saturday and remain there until just before midnight on Sunday. It then moves into mystical Pisces for the start of the new week. We are more intuitive and empathic under a Pisces Moon, but we also need to make sure we don’t get dragged too deeply into other people’s emotional issues.

Sunday brings a challenging square between Venus and Mars, which can see people being more argumentative than normal. We may see this transits energy manifesting as problems in our relationships, financial struggles, arguments centring around control issues, or finally taking action on ideas and plans that you have had bubbling away on a back burner for some time.

Week Ahead – Monday, January 13th through Sunday, January 19th

  • Posted on January 12, 2020 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We are getting into the midway point of January already. I noticed yesterday that it was staying lighter a bit longer, so we are also making our way out of the darker days winter. Today, we have some interesting energies around. We have the Moon in Leo just a couple of days after that powerful Cancer Full Moon/Eclipse. We also have Mercury being very active right now, so lots of restlessness, moving about quickly and talking. We also have Saturn and Pluto aligning today, as the first part of a near triple alignment in Capricorn that will be happening all year. This is calling us to release that which is draining or taking away our power. We need to start being clear about our responsibilities and our boundaries! This means not being afraid to look like the bad person if we need to move from some part of our lives and those who are not supportive of us. So, we have some work to do! Now let’s see what this week has in store.

MONDAY

Just after Noon today, the Moon will briefly be Void of Course before it moves into Virgo. We become more practical and rational in Virgo, making this a great time for taking care of those tasks that need attention to detail, as well as getting ourselves organized in some way. Whether it’s clearing out a closet or re-organizing your cabinets, this is a good time for it. Venus also makes her move into Pisces today, where she will be until February 7th. Its a good time for spirituality and romance, however, fantasies and illusions can now be seen for what they truly are. The Sun is busy today as well, making two conjunctions. One is with Pluto, a brief but powerful transit where we may see more arguments than usual. Then there is a conjunction with Saturn, another brief one, but one that can bring about serious situations and minor setbacks. So try not to let yourself get too bogged down in those details (easier said than done with a Virgo Moon hanging about).

TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY

Tuesday is a quiet one for us, giving us a bit of a breather. Just after Noon on Wednesday, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours before moving into balancing Libra. This brings us a social vibe for the next couple of days. Venus and Uranus are also mingling today, bringing an unpredictable energy and some excitement for the social aspect of our lives. We are drawn towards anything that breaks us away from our usual routine or brings some welcome changes.

THURSDAY

Today we have the idea planet Mercury moving into inventive Aquarius until February 3rd. This will be a great time for sharing our ideas, as well as opening up to new groups, organizations, and friends. This makes it the perfect time for anything that needs an analytical or sci-fi/techy approach. We may also find that we are able to see old and familiar situations in a totally different light, allowing us to have a fresher perspective on things. The downside to this transit is that it isn’t very supportive in situations where we need to take a more sensitive or gentle approach where personal interactions are concerned. We are more tempted to just say what needs to be said and let the chips fall where they will. Sometimes that can be a good thing too though.

FRIDAY

Just after Noon, the Moon will go Void of Course until the early evening. it then moves into the brooding sign of Scorpio. This can be an emotionally difficult time where we need to take care not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. People tend to become more conscious of self and others and see everything in dark tones with the Moon in Scorpio. It can be a time for healing, however, as we can delve deep under the surface of situations. Mercury and Chiron come together today as well, bringing a chance to reflect on our pain and allowing us to talk about it with someone we are close to.

WEEKEND

Saturday brings us a challenging square between Mercury and Uranus that may bring us flashes of insight and clarity. Just bear in mind that the answers we receive now may not be the ones we want to hear because it means disrupting some aspect of our lives. Sunday is quiet for most of the day and evening. In the later part of the evening, the Moon will go Void of Course for a couple of hours, and then sifts into the more optimistic and upbeat sign of Sagittarius for our start to the week. This shifts us from looking within to looking at the world around us. We want to explore and take risks, but we do need to be careful as well.

Week Ahead – Monday, January 6th through Sunday, January 12th

  • Posted on January 5, 2020 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have all enjoyed your New Year celebrations. This is our first full week of January 2020 and today we have an emotionally supportive lunar energy to work with. It’s a good time for sharing with those who have a nice energy and put off dealing with those who tend to annoy us. Let’s see what the rest of this week has in store!

 

MONDAY/TUESDAY

From noon today, the Moon will be Void of Course, which means it isn’t a good time for starting any new and important projects. What a Void of Course period is good for is tending to our existing projects and any introspective activities. In the early hours of Tuesday, the Moon will shift into Gemini, which brings a curious and social vibe. However, it can also have us getting off track as our attention flits from one thing to the next. This energy is best used for detail gathering, research, communication, and sharing ideas with others. We also have the Sun and Neptune mingling their energies today, which favours spiritual activities.

WEDNESDAY

Today we have a sextile between Mercury and Neptune, where our intuition tends to run high and we feel inspired by others. It’s a very creative energy to work with because our ideas seem to just flow effortlessly. The only downside is that it can be hard to draw firm clear boundaries with others during this transit. We also have an opposition between Jupiter and the North Node, which makes this a good time for assimilating and integrating knowledge, as well as releasing any old beliefs and opinions that are no longer useful to us. The Moon will go Void of Course a couple of hours before midnight.

THURSDAY

As we start our morning, we will feel that shift of restless energy moving into a need for peace and quiet as the Moon moves into Cancer. This is a good time for getting in touch with what motivates us. Later in the day, the Moon enters its Full Lunation. This Full Moon in Cancer wants us to create a balance between our nurturing needs and our responsibilities. We are also drawn towards looking at our higher service to the world and see how that balances out with our need to tend to our personal lives. We have one more set of Cancer. Capricorn eclipses coming up in the summer before it hibernates for 9 years. So use this time to take care of those close to home issues and projects because, come May, the tone will change drastically and pick up its pace. Use these next few months for getting your house in order.

FRIDAY

We have a conjunction between the life-giving Sun and communications planet Mercury today. This is a good time for communicating in all ways, as well as taking a short trip to keep ourselves, and our mind busy. Some may find it a bit harder to rest today. Just before midnight, the Moon will go Void of Course until Noon on Saturday.

WEEKEND

We wake up on Saturday with a Void of Course Moon, which will then move into heart opening Leo just after Noon. This is a good time for fun, creativity, and any other activities that open up our heart. Mercury becomes quite active as we turn in for the evening, and some of you may find it hard to get to sleep. We also have Uranus beginning its Retrograde cycle in Taurus until August of this year. This can bring a turning point for situations involving issues with freedom, breaking free of old patterns, and express our own uniqueness. It may feel a bit erratic at times but it will help clear the way for our true selves to manifest.

Sunday brings Mercury into a conjunction with both Saturn and Pluto. This brings a time where our thoughts and communication are more intense. We want to analyse what is essential in our lives, as well as get to the truth of situations that may have been lingering. It’s all about cutting to the chase and superficiality just won’t cut it for us now. Saturn also makes a conjunction with Pluto today, a transit that occurs about every 34 years. It can be a hard transit because we can experience hardship, disappointment, or loss as we learn what it is that we need to release. The best way to get through this is to go with the flow and not fight those needed changes.

Below is just a snippet of January’s newsletter. If you subscribe or go to my website you will have access to the astrology section, monthly raffle and a variety of other goodies! Subscribe Here

What’s New This Month 

Here we are once more at the cusp of another year gone by and a new one beginning.  The coming year looks to be one that we will remember because we will all experience a shift in our beliefs, attitudes and the very structure of our lives in transition.

As we come to the close of the old year I always make a point of looking back at where I was this time last year. And I am always amazed at just how much I have done and learned.

As we start moving into the colder and darker days of winter, many of us start to feel a bit down, tired, or overwhelmed. Darker days can often create a feeling of melancholy. That is why its so important to do things that bring warmth to your environment and your spirit. Pampering yourself in little ways, focusing on crafts or projects in the house you may not have had time for, or taking stock of what you have done and what you wish to do in the coming year; all of these are ways to perk things up a bit.

The New Year is always a good time for looking ahead, making changes, and letting go of the old from last year. And it’s a great time to have a New Year Outlook Reading to help get a glimpse of what is ahead for you this year. You can find my special New Year’s readings in the  Monthly Specials  section this month, along with a few other inspirational readings to help bring balance into your life, such as the Spiritual Journey and the Fool’s Journey readings for those who are looking to start off in a new direction. So be sure to stop by and have a look at the September specials! You can have a browse through the many specialized readings I offer on the  Tarot Readings page.  Tarot’s Life Path & Personal Growth section is a good place to start!  Or take a wander through the various Oracle readings on my site, like Rune, Angel, Faery and Animal Totem readings.  All of these categories can be found on the main Reading Room page.  Don’t forget to check out the other areas on the Readings page, like the Oracles, Rune and Animal Medicine Cards sections.

If you have a website or blog that you need some creative content writing for, I offer my services as a freelance writer.  You can check out my basic prices at Faery Scribe.  I’ve written for several sites, such as Natural News, Jules of the Earth, Hirewriters and a number of private clients.

In the Reiki/Energy Work section you can find reiki and energy work to help give you a bit of a boost. You can find Reiki sessions, Chakra Healing and Attunements, Violet Flame healing, and the Avalon Crown of Success healing. Reiki is great for flushing out the old energies that may be lingering both in our own energetic bodies and the environment around us.

If Astrology is your cup of tea be sure to stop by my Astrology section where you can order some insightful Natal charts, Compatibility reports and Transit reports to see what will be affecting you in the months ahead. Each persons Birth Chart can show how the positions of the planets and stars at the exact time of their birth can influence their life. Learn how each planetary position has determined your physical, personal, psychic and spiritual characteristics! These charts are a great gift for birthdays or just as a special way to treat someone to a bit of astrological insight.

Come and check out my Blog that at http://earthspirittarot.com/wp/   I hope to be writing on a variety of topics from Tarot to general spirituality topics once we get into the New Year.  But for now you can catch my weekly Astrology updates there.

Week Ahead – Monday, December 30th through Sunday, January 5th

  • Posted on December 29, 2019 at 7:30 am

 

 

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas/Yule. We only have a few more days left for 2019 and 2020 looks like it will be a big year with 3 planets closely aligned in Capricorn. Today is a quiet one for us with some friendly Aquarius Moon energy. We may feel somewhat detached with the rest of the world with no planetary aspects occurring, but that isn’t really a bad thing. Let’s take a look at what these last few days of 2019 have in store for us, and how the new year will start off.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

Mid-morning, the Moon will go Void of Course until mid-afternoon. It then moves into mystical Pisces. When the Moon is in Pisces, we swim in imaginative currents that go beyond the normal limits of space and time. It’s a mood when symbols, music and images convey the messages of the soul. This happens through art, dance, film, photography, theatre and play. We have the Sun in an opposition to the North Lunar Node later in the day, which could bring us into contact with someone from our past. We also have a harmonious trine between Mercury and Uranus today, making it a good day for meeting new people and sharing our innovative ideas with others. Tuesday, New Year’s Eve, is another quiet one in the skies for us, but we still have that friendly Pisces energy, which is great for enjoying those New Years Eve celebrations.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY

The 1st day of 2020 continues the theme of quietness in the skies. In the wee hours of Thursday morning, the Moon will briefly go Void of Course and then slip into fiery Aries, where we can feel a bit restless with a build-up of excess energy. Try to get out and move your body to burn some of that off. We also have a conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter, which is a good time for verbalizing our goals.

FRIDAY

Today, Mars moves into Sagittarius where the energy seems to fly. We may feel motivated to learn something new at this time or share our knowledge with others. Many will feel inspired to defend a righteous cause or could lead others to take a stand about something they feel passionate about. Mercury will also be in an opposition with the North Lunar Node, which could have us dwelling in the past.

WEEKEND

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course until mid-afternoon. It then moves into earthy Taurus, where we can start to feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. There is also this tendency for our thoughts and reactions to slow down, making us feel a bit slow in getting ourselves going. This is the best time for taking care of the home, running errands, restocking supplies and tending to routine maintenance. It’s best to hold off on important business now, as well as the signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed-down reaction and thinking process.

On Sunday, Mars makes a harmonious trine with Chiron, which can make us feel more assertive with our own healing process, helping us to move past any inhibitions that have been stopping us from expressing anger, frustration, or from taking action. It’s possible you might choose to use this energy in the defence of another person, a cause or something else you feel passionately about. It’s possible to focus your energy, intent, motives and actions in ways that are healing, healthy, balanced and constructive.

Week Ahead – Monday, December 23rd through Sunday, December 29th

  • Posted on December 22, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday officially kicked off the Yule season with the Winter Solstice. From this point onwards the days will begin to get longer until the Summer Solstice in June. This can be a rough time of year for a lot of people, and one that feels stressful. It’s really important that you take the time you need to recharge and step back from the chaos of the season. Many people start to feel depressed with the short days and long nights, and it’s a time that can ramp up emotions for those who suffer from depression and anxiety. Make sure you check on your loved ones; friends, family, your next-door neighbour, etc. It’s a time where we need to be there for each other and for ourselves.

Today, we have a challenging energy between Venus and Uranus, which isn’t the best time for relationship conversations. We may feel pulled between doing something healthy for our body and wanting to do things that are comforting. Try to find a balance between the two if you can. Now, let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us!

MONDAY

In the early hours of the morning, the Moon will go Void of Course until mid-afternoon, when it then moves into upbeat Sagittarius. This means that Christmas Eve and Day will have a more optimistic feel to it. It’s a good time for getting together with those we call family. We also have a square between the Sun and Chiron today, which can make our patience and confidence feel a bit strained. Its a day for taking a fresh approach to any situations where we feel stuck and need a new perspective.

TUESDAY (Christmas Eve)/WEDNESDAY (Christmas Day)

Christmas Eve has a harmonious trine between the life-giving Sun and Uranus, which can help us feel more spontaneous and lets us go with the flow of things. It’s an energy that can help us get out of a rut and makes us feel more grounded and in touch with our true spirit. Just be careful of Uranus’ reckless side. For Christmas Day, we have the Moon going Void of Course just before noon, where it will remain until later in the evening, the Moon will then move into Capricorn, where we are drawn towards doing productive things, like cleaning up the mess from Christmas morning and Christmas dinner.

THURSDAY (Boxing Day, UK)/FRIDAY

Today we have a solar eclipse and a Capricorn New Moon. We have a lot of planets in Capricorn right now, which represents boundaries, restrictions, rules, taxes, structure, and sacrificing the short-term for long-term rewards. For those who do energy and spell work, the New Moon is the perfect time for setting intentions for the things you wish to create, cultivate, manifest and develop. The mood can feel a bit bland after the festivities of the past two days, but this is a good time for getting serious about our priorities and goals. It’s an opportunity to renovate our lives if we are willing to make changes that will last.

For Friday we have a conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter, a transit that fosters optimism, confidence, vision, and leadership. This is a really great day for focusing on new directions that will expand our horizons, especially where self-improvement goals are concerned. It’s also a good day for expressing our physical energy through outdoor activities.

WEEKEND

Early Saturday morning, the Moon moves into friendly Aquarius for the weekend. This is a nice, social energy for connecting with people. It’s also a time where we want to break away from limitations and old routines. We are drawn towards improving ourselves and are attracted to the new and unusual. While the vibe is friendly, it is also detached, which can be helpful in allowing us to step back in some situations to see the bigger picture. It’s a good weekend for tapping into group energy.

Sunday is the day that Mercury shifts into a new sign, Capricorn. This brings out Mercury’s analytical and focused side. Our conversations will feel more down to earth and focused on practical matters for the next month. Mercury will also be making a challenging square to Chiron today, which can make our mental focus and perceptions feel a bit strained.

That’s all for this coming week. I hope you all have a safe and happy Yuletide season!

Week Ahead – Monday, December 16th through Sunday, December 22nd

  • Posted on December 15, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! This week takes us into the last half of December and brings us the Winter Solstice. For the past week, we have had Jupiter moving into a harmonious trine with Uranus, which is exact today. This means we can open up to some expansive new ideas and bring them back down to earth for the coming new year. Let’s have a look at what this week has in store for us.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

Monday is a quiet one with the Moon going Void of Course in the late evening. The Moon then moves into Virgo Sunday morning. This means it’s time to tend to all of those little details of our lives or work on clearing out any clutter. This energy will be with us for the next couple of days.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY

Once again, we have a quiet day on Wednesday, but Thursday is a big day. We start off with a Void of Course Moon as we start our morning. The Moon then moves into Libra a couple of hours after, bringing us a sense of calm and harmony. Libra brings a very social energy as well. It would be a good idea to get our work done early today because, as the day goes on, we will find ourselves less willing to take care of responsible things. This is down to a sextile between Mercury and Saturn, and a square between Mercury and Neptune. Our mental side wants us to get a lot accomplished, but our intuitive side wants to daydream and do things that don’t require a lot of thinking.

FRIDAY

Today, we have Venus moving into Aquarius, which is a friendly energy that is perfect for sharing over the holidays. This transit can be a good time for trying new things, experimenting, networking with others, and looking a bit more objectively at how we interact and show intimacy with others. A focus on bringing balance into relationships that seem unequal can be a focus as well, especially in situations where it seems one person has an advantage over the other. We tend to focus on building the friendship aspect of our relationships in order to create a firmer foundation for more to grow in the future.

WEEKEND

Saturday is our Winter Solstice and we have most of the planets clustered in 1/4 of the zodiac right now. What this means is that we will be focusing our intent on some specific area of our lives or goals for the next 3 months. Just before noon, the Moon will go Void of Course briefly, and then move into brooding Scorpio. This can help us tap into the deepest levels of our being right now. Venus makes a sextile to Chiron today as well, a friendly little transit that can provide opportunities for us to harmonize a difficult relationship.

On Sunday, the Sun moves into Capricorn, so Happy Solar Return to all of you Capricorns! When the Sun is in Capricorn it gives us the opportunity to explore our connection to Mother Earth in a more physical way. We feel more able to manifest our goals and see substantial changes. It’s a time of bringing structure into our lives and setting boundaries that are helpful and nurturing rather than restrictive and binding. Venus makes a challenging square to Uranus in the afternoon, where we need to be careful of temptations like impulse buying and being a bit erratic with our resources. Mars will also be sextile Pluto today, where we can experience a period of intense focus and determined action. Our physical energy levels are heightened at this time and we may discover that we can work very hard for long periods of time. This means that we really need to pay attention to our body during this time; remember to eat and rest when you need to and avoid burning out.

Week Ahead – Monday, December 9th through Sunday, December 15th

  • Posted on December 8, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope the start of this month has been good for you all so far. Today, we are under the influence of the earthy Taurus Moon, which makes it a good day for tackling practical, hands-on tasks. It’s also a good one for taking a break and enjoying life’s little pleasures. We also have a square between the Sun and Neptune, so pay attention to your dreams for the next day or two. Now, let’s see what this coming week has in store for us.

MONDAY

Today, Mercury moves into Sagittarius, where it’s all about refocusing, readjusting, freedom, and independence. It’s a good time for learning something new and for expanding our horizons. We gain a chance to discover some truths, visions, and insights. We just need to remember that there are many views to be seen and no one view is always the right one. The same can go for situations in life. Each person has their own view from where they are standing. It doesn’t mean that just one is right and the rest are wrong. It simply means that each view is right for each individual and their situation.

TUESDAY

The Moon will be Void of Course in the early morning hours and will remain that way until the late afternoon. It then moves into Gemini for the next couple of days. Sociability, cheerfulness and quick-wittedness are on the increase, and there is an interest in all kinds of information. The Moon in Gemini favours study, intellectual pursuits, acquaintances, conferences and gatherings. However, heightened changeability and scattering your interests can prevent you from getting definite, tangible results. We also have a trine between Mercury and Chiron today. which can open up the doors for positive healing and communication.

WEDNESDAY

Today is our Full Moon, and it takes place in Gemini, with the Sun in Sagittarius. This Full Moon can have a bit of a contradictory feel to it. Both signs want to party and socialize and can talk to anyone and everyone at any given time. However, we have dreamy Neptune in a challenging position to the Full Moon. and this energy prefers a more sacred, private level or sharing, or wants to hide away. While Gemini and Sagittarius’ enthusiasm and curiosity make them ready for anything, we still have this increased emphasis of planets in the more serious-minded Capricorn, which brings things down to earth. We also have a conjunction between Venus and Saturn today, which blends structure and responsibility with our desire for beauty, pleasure, and material abundance. Some may feel blocked right now in the areas of finances, relationships, and pleasures which means that those areas will need to be reworked before we move forward.

THURSDAY

In the early morning hours, the Moon will go Void of Course and remain that way until just before midnight. It then moves into Cancer for the next couple of days, where the restless energy of Gemini gives way to Cancer’s need for peace and quiet. Quite often, when the Moon is in Cancer, we all become homebodies. We want to retreat to the place we feel most at home. This can bring out a sense of “homesickness” if we’re far from home, or estranged from others. It may be a time, than of reaching out to those that know us best. This Moon makes us quick to tear up and have sentimental moments. We might get absorbed in memories of a long lost lover or friend. It heightens emotions, and we might experience mood swings, from dark lows to blissful highs. We are more sensitive to the moods of others as well, allowing us to be more emphatic.

FRIDAY

It’s Friday the 13th, and we have a trine between Mars and Neptune that will make the day a bit more interesting. We can go from being a space cadet to a visionary under this transit. We then have Venus and Pluto joining in, which can stir up the emotions. Deep-seated doubts, fears, and emotions that have been bubbling just under the surface could now boil over. Now, this can be a really good combo for business and finances. But only if you are willing to release what is no longer working for you and make efforts in longer-term projects and goals. It’s also a good transit for negotiations and finding balance with others.

WEEKEND

Saturday is a quiet one, with the Moon going Void of Course mid-afternoon. It then moves into heart opening Leo in the early hours of Sunday morning, bringing us a more energetic and optimistic vibe. This is a good time decorating the home for the holidays, connecting with your inner child, and bringing some laughter into people’s lives. We have a trine between Jupiter and Uranus later in the day, a transit that many see as a favourable one that brings good fortune our way and opportunities that benefit us.

Week Ahead – Monday, December 2nd through Sunday, December 8th

  • Posted on December 1, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone, and welcome to December! It’s hard to believe the year is nearly over already. Today, we are under the influence of an Aquarius Moon. Regardless of what your sign is, for a couple of days each month we all get drawn into the influence of the Aquarius Moon. It drives us to find our own uniqueness so that we can share it with the world. It’s a social energy, so today is a good one for meeting new people and visiting new places. Aquarius also has a bit of a rebellious streak that craves freedom and distractions from our usual routine. You can use this energy to help break old habits. Now, let’s see what the first week of December has in store for us.

MONDAY

Today, Jupiter moves into Capricorn, where it will remain until December of next year. Capricorn is not Jupiter’s favourite sign to be in. Jupiter is expansive and has an extravagant nature. Under this sign, we may see the negative qualities of Jupiter, which can bring out a miserly and materialistic side. The positive side of Jupiter in this sign seeks a higher perspective and lets us look at the big picture. Wherever Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally where you are inclined to find your joy at this stage in your development. We also have Mars and Venus mingling with the North Lunar Node at this time. The Mars/North Node interaction will give us the courage we need to follow through on our ideas. The Venus/North Node transit is a different story and a bit of a challenge. This can be a difficult transit where love and finances are concerned. With the love aspect of things, we need to look at where our chronic involvement in relationships is distracting us from our true life path and determine if that is leading us in the opposite direction of where we should be going. On the financial side of things, we need to look at situations that are blocking our way forward or keeping us stuck in place.

TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY

As we begin our morning, the Moon will move into that mystical sign of Pisces. We tend to want to help people more and our empathy and intuition increase during this time. We do need to be careful though, because there is a tendency for getting overly involved in the problems of others, causing us to temporarily lose ourselves in the process. It’s wise to watch out for those who prey on the goodwill of others at this time. In the afternoon, Mercury mingles with Pluto to give our intuition a boost. We also have Venus interacting with Mars, w2hich can help us make a balanced approach to any conflicts, problems, or goals that require a lot of effort. Wednesday is a quiet one in the skies for us.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY

As our morning begins on Thursday, the Moon will go Void of Course until the early evening. It then moves into fiery Aries, where we tend to feel a lot of excess energy. Try to burn that off by being active. Some may actually feel this shift more than others and experience trouble sleeping. Aries also draws us towards wanting new emotional beginnings, a fresh start, perhaps the establishment of new habit patterns – so make sure they’re good ones because they’ll set the tone for you for quite some time to come! This energy will continue through Friday and into the weekend.

WEEKEND

That Aries energy is with us until mid-afternoon on Saturday, when it goes Void of Course until Sunday Morning. For those who are wondering, a Void of Course Moon is when it is travelling between two signs in the zodiac. In this void, the Moon isn’t quite sure how it feels. And since the Moon rules our emotions, we don’t know how we feel either! We may feel a bit lost, run down, out of sorts or confused. The effects can last from a few seconds to a day or two. It is believed that any activities that we start during a Void of Course Moon will lack the foundation, stability and guidance to get going causing them to drift, face delays and false starts, face unexpected hassles, break down or never reaching that stage of completion. It’s not the best time for decision making, however, it is a good time for taking a bit of a break.

Early Sunday morning, the Moon will move into earthy Taurus, where patience, diligence, perseverance and practicality are on the increase. The Moon in Taurus favours occupations which demand prolonged and persistent effort, but it is also good for complete rest in comfort and cosiness. Taurus where we are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and “stop to smell the roses”. Life slows down a little, and we get comfortable. We may also be inclined to stubbornness and materialism under this influence. It is best to avoid undertaking anything which requires quickness, decisiveness and quick-wittedness.

We have a challenging transit between the Sun and Neptune today as well, which can be a bit tricky to work with because it has the tendency to take those wistful ideas and wishful thinking and make them seem more realistic than they actually are. On a positive note, this transit makes our imagination very active. It can be a creative time if we can harness our imaginations and creativity productively. Venus will be mingling with Neptune as well today, which can open the flow of artistry, romance, creativity and faith. We find ourselves inspired as our creative Muse comes to the surface. And lastly, Jupiter and Chiron come together in a challenging square, which puts us on the threshold of realization that we are the healer we have been waiting for all this time.

Earth Spirit Tarot’s December 2019 Newsletter

  • Posted on November 30, 2019 at 10:00 pm

I publish a newsletter each month that can be viewed in its entirety at http://earthspirittarot.com/webnews.htm

Below is just a snippet of December’s newsletter. If you subscribe or go to my website you will have access to the astrology section, monthly raffle and a variety of other goodies! Subscribe Here

Here we are once more, moving into the last month of another year gone by.  As we come to the close of the old year I always make a point of looking back at where I was this time last year and I am always amazed at just how much I have done and learned. Soon we will be entering 2020 and hopefully a more positive time of growth for ourselves and the world around us. 

As we start moving into the colder and darker days of winter, many of us start to feel a bit down, tired, or overwhelmed. Darker days can often create a feeling of melancholy. That is why its so important to do things that bring warmth to your environment and your spirit. Pampering yourself in little ways, focusing on crafts or projects in the house you may not have had time for, or taking stock of what you have done and what you wish to do in the coming year; all of these are ways to perk things up a bit.

The specials for this month reflect the energies of the holiday season. We have the “Solstice of Light” and the “Yule Star” readings. And for those of you wanting a glimpse at what the New Year will be bringing you, the ever popular “New Year Outlook” and “New Year, New You” readings are available. The New Year Outlook reading comes with a 1 year astrology transit report too! All of these can be found in the   Monthly Specials  section this month, along with a few other inspirational readings to help bring balance into your life, such as the Spiritual Journey and the Fool’s Journey readings for those who are looking to start off in a new direction. So be sure to stop by and have a look at the September specials! You can have a browse through the many specialized readings I offer on the   Tarot Readings page.  Tarot’s  Life Path & Personal Growth section is a good place to start!  Or take a wander through the various Oracle readings on my site, like Rune, Angel, Faery and Animal Totem readings.  All of these categories can be found on the main  Reading Room page.  Don’t forget to check out the other areas on the  Readings page, like the  Oracles,  Rune and  Animal Medicine Cardssections.

For many getting ready to start some early Yuletide shopping, have a browse through my  Faery Trinkets  shop, where I will have my Barefoot Sandals, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and crochet items on display for sale.  I’ll be adding some crocheted items as well soon, and you can also find these items in my  Etsy shop.

If you have a website or blog that you need some creative content writing for, I offer my services as a freelance writer.  You can check out my basic prices at Faery Scribe.  I’ve written for several sites, such as Natural News, Jules of the Earth, Hirewriters and a number of private clients.

In the  Reiki/Energy Work section you can find reiki and energy work to help give you a bit of a boost. You can find Reiki sessions, Chakra Healing and Attunements, Violet Flame healing, and the Avalon Crown of Success healing. Reiki is great for flushing out the old energies that may be lingering both in our own energetic bodies and the environment around us.

If  Astrology is your cup of tea be sure to stop by my Astrology section where you can order some insightful Natal charts, Compatibility reports and Transit reports to see what will be affecting you in the months ahead. Each persons Birth Chart can show how the positions of the planets and stars at the exact time of their birth can influence their life. Learn how each planetary position has determined your physical, personal, psychic and spiritual characteristics! These charts are a great gift for birthdays or just as a special way to treat someone to a bit of astrological insight.

Come and check out my Blog that at  http://earthspirittarot.com/wp/   I hope to be writing on a variety of topics from Tarot to general spirituality topics once we get into the New Year.  But for now you can catch my weekly Astrology updates there.
