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.

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.

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.

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.

Week Ahead – Monday, November 25th through Sunday, December 1st

  • Posted on November 24, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe November is practically over already? This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. and today we have two very different planetary energies in play. The first is Venus aligning with Jupiter, which is considered to be a lucky and optimistic combo. Then we have Mars in an opposition with Uranus, which can be an explosive combo that brings the unexpected our way. The change this transit brings us will either set us free of break down some aspect of our lives. Try to stay clear of those who have control issues today. Now let’s see what this last week in November has in store for us.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

In the late afternoon on Monday, the Moon will go Void of Course until Tuesday morning. It then moves into optimistic Sagittarius and, later this evening enters its New lunation. This New Moon gives us time to step back from the busy world around us to gain a more spiritual perspective of what is happening in our lives and the world around us. Sagittarius also brings a fun, party energy, which will be with us for Thanksgiving Day. We also have Venus moving into Capricorn today, where she will remain until just before the Winter Solstice. In Capricorn, Venus’s energy works better for business relationships and allows us to work on our ambitions, as well as the core structure of our lives to help us manifest our needs, values, and desires. However, we will need to put in the work and be practical in our planning.

WEDNESDAY

Today, Neptune ends its retrograde cycle that began at the Summer Solstice. This means we can now work on bringing a higher vision into our lives. We also have a challenging square between Venus and Chiron today. we may find that we are forced to make some adjustments in our relationships or finances. We may find that these areas are not balancing out and coming together as we would want them. That feeling of “can’t’ win for losing” could be a familiar one under this transit as we find the more we try, the more we feel we are going round in circles.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY

Happy Thanksgiving! Our morning begins with a brief Void of Course Moon that will move into Capricorn just after Noon. This energy is great for pushing past difficult obstacles. We’ve got extra discipline and patience. And we’re able to forgo the satisfaction of short-term gains for longer-term achievements. Mercury and Neptune come together today, which can make us feel that we are in the right place at the right time. It’s a good energy for getting together with others too. We also have a trine between Venus and Uranus later today, which makes us feel more open and at ease in the company of others. We do need to be careful with this energy though, as it will be with us for Black Friday, and it’s an energy that can have us making impulse purchases that we may regret later on.

WEEKEND

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course and remain there until the early evening. It then moves into Aquarius for the remainder of the weekend. So Sunday will be a good time for connecting with groups, organizations and being social. We also have Mercury and Saturn coming together this weekend, which is a supportive transit that can help us focus on making situations better around us. It’s a good time to focus our energy on completing those difficult tasks we may have been putting aside till now. You may just find that those blocked situations can now be resolved more easily. Sunday is a quiet one3, so we can use this to recuperate and get ready for the week ahead.

Week Ahead – Monday, November 18th through Sunday, November 24th

  • Posted on November 17, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! The first two weeks of November have zoomed by it seems, and they have been a rough two weeks at that. Aside from all the rain and flooding in many areas, we have had to deal with some intense energies that have made dealing with people and situations challenging to say the least. I’m hoping things will start to settle down for the week ahead. Today, we have the Moon in heart-opening Leo, so maybe try to have a bit of fun to lighten the mood. Let’s see what lies ahead this week.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

That playful Leo energy will still be with us on Monday, so try to make the most of it. On Tuesday, warrior planet Mars moves into his favourite sign, Scorpio. He will be there until the start of January, when he moves into his other favourite sign, Aries. For now, this makes a good time for focusing on our ambitions and doing anything that needs a bit of detective work. It’s a good energy for doing any projects that you are passionate about. The Moon will go Void of Course in the late evening.

WEDNESDAY

In the early hours of the morning, the Moon moves into Virgo, where we become more practical and rational. It’s a good time for taking care of tasks that require attention to details. It’s also a time where many of us find a desire to re-organize and re-think things. This makes it a good time for doing routine work that requires precision, concentration on detail and hard work. Today is also the day that Mercury fully ends his retrograde cycle. Keep in mind though that it can take up to 2 weeks before we feel things are actually back to normal. So we may still experience mental intensity, miscommunication, confusion, and some changes to our outlook and perspective. These last few weeks of Mercury’s Retrograde has challenged us to rethink and rehash the things in our lives that have required a bit of tweaking, revising, and fine-tuning. Now that Mercury is in its direct station we could see clearer decisions emerging from the struggles we encountered during the retrograde period. We may have a turn of perspective that allows us to look at those old issues in a fresh light too.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY

Thursday is a quiet one in the skies for us. In the early hours of Friday morning, the Moon will briefly go Void of Course, and then move into balancing Libra. The Moon in Libra creates this feeling of harmony and calm. We find we more easily connect with people, compromise is more likely and conflict less so. The Sun also enters Sagittarius today, so Happy Solar Return to all of you Sagittarian’s out there! With the enthusiastic Sagittarius energy and social Libra energy in play, it’s a great time for parties and social gatherings.

WEEKEND

Saturday continues with the optimistic and social energies of Libra and Sagittarius. In the early hours of Sunday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course for a couple of hours and then move into Scorpio, changing the tone of things. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. We also have a lucky Venus/Jupiter conjunction today, where it seems we can attract the resources we need to us more easily. It’s a good time for buying a lottery ticket! Lastly, we have a challenging opposition between Mars and Uranus, so expect the unexpected here. This is a transit that can ramp up the level of nervous energy we feel. Conflicts can suddenly appear-and with unexpected force; the slightest provocation often ignites an issue. It will be interesting to see how this energy pans out on a larger scale with some volatile situations going on in the world right now. Temper tantrums are on the menu now with a side order of stubbornness. It may be a good idea to take a moment to focus within, especially if you feel emotions are getting ready to spiral out of control.

Week Ahead – Monday, November 11th through Sunday, November 17th

  • Posted on November 10, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We are nearly at the halfway point of November now, and tomorrow will mark Mercury’s halfway point in its Retrograde cycle. So the tone will start to shift from cleaning up the past to doing some behind the scenes preparation for upcoming projects. We have the Moon in Aries for the next couple of days, so the focus is on being active to burn off any excess energy. Let’s have a look at what this new week has in store for us.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

On Monday, we have a conjunction between the life-giving Sun and Mercury, which can help us become aware of new beginnings, communication, and how we are processing and using the info we receive. Some will only feel a vague mental shift, where others may feel their mental state and focus is a bit murky. Tuesday is our Taurus Full Moon, but we first have the Moon going Void of Course mid-afternoon. We have an abundance of fixed energy and strong water and earth elements in play right now. Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius are all fixed signs. they are the zodiacs survivors that can endure hard times while continuing to push ahead. They also bring life lessons with them about letting go. The elements of earth and water find it easy to find their comfortable vibe, but they need to make sure that groove they are in doesn’t become a rut. This Full Moon is asking you where it is that you need to toughen up to move forward in your life, and what do you need to let go of? We also have a sextile between Mars and Jupiter that brings us a bit of upbeat energy and optimism.

WEDNESDAY

The Moon moves into Gemini in the morning, where we become more active and feel a need to socialize. It’s a good day for getting together with friends and communicate our ideas, to be on the move, and travel short distances in order to fulfil that need for new impressions. Mercury and Saturn come together in a supportive transit that can help us create a balanced atmosphere for working together. Mercury also makes a trine with Neptune today, which heightens our intuition and imagination. Be ready for some “light bulb” moments. The Sun comes together with Pluto later in the day, which helps us to see below the surface of situations, which can help us get to the core of any unconscious patterns that we need to change.

THURSDAY

Today, Venus makes a challenging square to Neptune, where we may find that those areas that Venus rules, such as relationships, resources, pleasure and money are subject to deception, confusion and wishful thinking that is unrealistic. Our desires are more unclear now so hold off on making any big decisions or changes to those areas. We may experience some ups and downs in our relationships, as well as financial scenarios that look great at first glance but really aren’t when the fog clears.

FRIDAY

The Moon will go Void of Course just before Noon and then move into Cancer mid-afternoon. We can feel the restlessness of the Gemini Moon giving way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet. We can experience increased emotions, vulnerability and touchiness. Some just want to be homebodies now or spend time with those in our inner circle. This Moon makes us want to retreat, to refill the well. But it’s about being enriched by close ties, and the safety of home, too.  It’s not necessarily mellow, but there’s a sense of wanting to be enclosed, private, in familiar environs.

WEEKEND

On Saturday, the asteroid Ceres moves into Sagittarius. Ceres represents the nurturing we received in our early years as well as how we tend to nurture others.  It also rules the areas of clothing and food believe it or not!  Where our natal charts are concerned, where Ceres falls in the signs will show, not only our nurturing styles but those things which make us feel nurtured.  Where Ceres falls in the houses of one’s chart shows where we are more likely to express that nurturing side as well as where we can best receive nurturing from others.  In Sagittarius, we are nurtured by wisdom, adventure, and knowledge.

Sunday is mainly quiet. The Moon goes Void of Course in the evening for a couple of hours and then moves into heart opening Leo. The Moon in Leo speaks to our “inner child”. It’s a warm, generous, wholeheartedly loving position. It’s a strong time for romance and any creative activity as well. This can be an expansive, creative, and even romantic phase, a time you’ll look back on with pride and fondness.

Week Ahead – Monday, November 4th through Sunday, November 10th

  • Posted on November 3, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having a safe and fun Bonfire Night this weekend. We’re into the first week of November, which started off with Venus moving into Sagittarius, where she will be until the 25th. This should be an interesting time to watch because we have a lot of planetary energies that want to stay quiet and keep to ourselves, but Sagittarius is a party person. So, we may find ourselves going back and forth between being a social butterfly to wanting to be left alone. Today, the Moon has moved into Aquarius for the start of the week, making it a good time for meeting up with friends. Let’s see what the rest of this week has in store for us.

MONDAY/TUESDAY

On Monday, we are still working with that Aquarius energy, which makes it a good time to meet up with friends for lunch or dinner, and makes us more open to new ideas. Later Monday evening, and into Tuesday, we have a challenging square between Mars and Pluto, making for a rude combination of energies. We need to avoid forcing issues and give those angry people around us a wide berth! On the plus side, it gives us that push we need to take action to transform some area of our lives, as well as letting go of negative behaviors, people, attitudes, and physical stuff. Mod-afternoon on Tuesday starts the Moon’s Void of Course phase, which will be with us until an hour before midnight. The Moon then shifts into mystical Pisces, where our intuition is heightened and we get into a dreamy kind of mood.

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY/FRIDAY

From Wednesday until Friday things will flow easily, allowing us to get into our own little groove. The Moon will go Void of Course in the early hours of Friday morning and then move into Aries mid-morning. Aries energy helps us to get moving physically. As we enter this phase of emotional directness and impulsiveness, one marked by forceful and powerful feelings, we tend to gravitate towards 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! We have some pleasant social energy on Friday that will ebb into the weekend from some supportive combos between the Sun, Saturn, and Neptune. The Sun and Saturn come together to help us out with sorting any loose ends. A helpful trine between the Sun and Neptune also comes into play to stimulate our imaginations. Those that have been feeling the heaviness of depression will find their spirits uplifted, relieving them from the heavier weight of sadness and discouragement that has been felt up till now. Lastly, we have a sextile between Saturn and Neptune, which illuminates out intuitive side and gives us a sense of hope and optimism.

WEEKEND

Saturday continues with those uplifting energies, and we add a combo between Mercury and Pluto to the mix that brings passion to our communication and can bring us some enlightening “AHA!” moments. Sunday brings us a shift mid-afternoon when the Moon goes Void of Course until just before midnight. It then moves into earthy Taurus, where we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. It makes for a calm start to the new week and guides us to slow down a bit and smell the roses.

What’s New This Month 

Happy November everyone!  November looks like it will be a busy month!  Mercury will be retrograde until the 20th.  We have Venus moving into Sagittarius for nearly the entire month, which is great for philosophical and social pursuits.  While that’s going on, we have Mars in peacemaking Libra until the 18th, which will add to the social energy this month.  Mars moves into one of his favourite signs on the 19th, Scorpio, where he will remain for the rest of 2019. Scorpio is a great energy for any projects and emotional healing that need intense focus.  It’s also Thanksgiving, Bon Fire Night, Native American Heritage Month, and Remembrance/Veterans Day this month, as we start heading into the Yuletide season.

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 energy we will be dealing with. I have the seasonal Thanksgiving/Gratitude reading, and a few readings that will help you to explore your current journey in life. 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 Cards sections.

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.

Week Ahead – Monday, October 28th through Sunday, November 3rd

  • Posted on October 27, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re into the last week of October already! Don’t forget, here in the UK, the clocks go back today (early hours of Sunday). We get a whole extra hour in bed now! Today we have the Moon in Scorpio, where emotions run deep. We are also leading up to the New Moon, which occurs later tonight or tomorrow morning depending on where you live. We have a lot of planets in fixed signs, which is great for endurance. However, the difficult areas are going to be around adaptability and flexibility now. We also have a challenge between Mars and Saturn today, so part of you will want to get up and get moving, and part of you will feel like your mojo got up and went. With that in mind. let’s have a look at what this week has in store.

 

MONDAY

The New Moon takes place in the UK today, under the sign of Scorpio. It’s going to be hard to pinpoint how this New Moon will play out because we have an abundance of intense emotions, and the Moon is on the opposite side of Uranus in Taurus, so expect the unexpected. The emphasis is on the water element now, so deep, hidden emotions will be coming to the surface as a result. We need to pay attention to irrational emotions now because we are trying to heal anything that has been stuck or hidden for too long. The Sun is in opposition to Uranus as well, which can feel like a wakeup call in the form of another person or situation shaking us out of our usual routine.

TUESDAY

Our morning will still have a restless feel to it. By the late afternoon, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours, and then move into Sagittarius to bring a bit more optimism into play. For the next couple of days, our attention turns to our social lives and seeking the truth. 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. It does, however, put us in a risk-taking mood, so we do need to take some care.

WEDNESDAY

Today we have a conjunction between Mercury and Venus, which are both in emotional Scorpio right now. It’s a good time for negotiating agreements, contracts, and mutual plans. We also feel more drawn to things of beauty and pleasure with this transit. The areas of music, art, drama…anything that provides us with a pleasant diversion will draw our attention. The downside to this transit is that our desire to be in the company of others and socializing can make it hard to work or be alone right now.

THURSDAY

Happy Halloween/Samhain! Today, Mercury begins his retrograde cycle, which will last until mid-November. This will be a time where we see hidden emotions rising to the surface, as well as hidden secrets (politics perhaps?). As we wait out this retrograde period, expect the unexpected and make sure to leave a lot of room and flexibility when planning your schedule. The best way through this is to roll with whatever weirdness pops up. It’s not all bad though! This is a great time for doing research, fact-finding, investigative work and anything else necessary to prepare us for major decisions, which we can put into play after this retrograde cycle.

FRIDAY

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon will move into Capricorn, where toe focus is on discipline, formalities, and being reserved. This can be a very sober influence–even a depressing one. However, it can also be a productive time when we look reality in the face. These next couple of days are great for pushing past difficult obstacles. We’ve got extra discipline and patience to tap into and we’re able to forgo the satisfaction of short-term gains for longer-term achievements. Venus moves into Sagittarius later today, where she becomes more playful. In Sagittarius, Venus focuses her passion on truth-seeking, philosophical exploration, a lust for knowledge, and spiritual intimacy. It’s a time for us to explore what the meaning of our close relationships are to us. This is also a time when we look for ways to increase our income or our spending so we need to be careful that we don’t overindulge.

WEEKEND

Our Saturday brings us an empowered vibe as the life-giving Sun makes a harmonious trine to the North Lunar Node. Some may feel its energy a couple of days before and after this date. It could feel as if the pieces of the puzzle in any given situation, are just falling into place, allowing us to make progress in what we’re striving to do in our lives right now. We do need to be a bit cautious, however. Even though it feels like we can go forward we still need a bit of a reality check on the wisdom of what we want to do to be sure its still a good idea.

Sunday is the U.S.A’s time to turn the clocks back! We have an early morning Void of Course Moon, and then the Moon moves into Aquarius just before Noon. It’s a social energy that is good for attending group building events, brainstorming, and breaking free of social conventions. You may feel like mingling with some new people that are outside of your usual group of friends for example. We also have a harmonious trine between Venus and Chiron later in the day. This brings us a great opportunity for healing and rebalancing, especially in the areas of relationships, finance, resources, and values. This is also a time when we find we can draw to us what we need to heal wounds on many levels (spiritually, mentally, physically, psychologically, etc.) It makes it easier now to accept the things in our lives that we cannot change and focus on making progress in those things we can change.
