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.

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 person’s 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.

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

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.



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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Week Ahead – Monday, October 21st through Sunday, October 27th

Happy Sunday everyone! It looks like another month is zipping by already and I’m seeing a lot of people getting ready for Halloween. The leaves are turning colours and the evenings are getting longer. Autumn always puts me in the mood to bake and make some nice stews. This week brings us some nurturing and comfortable vibes, starting with our Cancer Moon today. Spend today with those you feel closest to and revel in your little home comforts! Let’s see what this week has in store.


Our morning begins with a harmonious trine between loving Venus and spiritual Neptune. It’s a good time for sharing our ideals in relationships, being creative, and feeling at one with nature. This can be great socially and intimately because things tend to run more smoothly as well as adding a touch of magic to the pot. It’s important however to be very clear about what we truly want! Just after Noon, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours and then will move into heart opening Leo in the late afternoon. Leo brings optimism that makes us feel like we can do anything. It’s a time for our inner child to come out and play too. Towards the evening we have a bit of a challenging square between Mars and North Lunar Node, which can make us feel that the actions we are taking are working at cross purposes with our perception of situations. We may feel this for a couple of weeks. The best way to deal with this is to try to balance our passions and impulse with a bit of mindful awareness.


Tuesday is a quiet one in the skies for us. Wednesday is the day that the life-giving Sun moves into Scorpio, so Happy Solar Return to all of your Scorpio’s out there! This will bring us some emotional intensity. By mid-morning on Wednesday, the Moon will go Void of Course until the late evening, when it moves into Virgo. We can use these next couple of days to take care of anything on our “to do” lists since Virgo likes to be efficient and orderly.


Thursday continues with the same mix of Scorpio/Virgo energies. The Moon will go Void of Course mid-afternoon on Friday and then the tone changes as it moves into balancing Libra in the evening. Libra brings a nice social energy that will be perfect for the weekend, especially for anyone throwing Halloween parties. We also have a sextile between Venus and Pluto today, a subtly powerful and uplifting time for romantic/sexual relationships. This is because our sense of attraction becomes very strong under this transit. This can also be a time for financial profit as opportunities with institutions such as banks, the taxman, insurance, or anything that deals with collective funds open up for us.


The same theme from Friday carries into Saturday. By Sunday morning, the Moon will once again go Void of Course and remain there until the late evening. It then joins the Sun in the deep waters of Scorpio. This will add some more emotional intensity to the mix, and we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. There can be an increase in jealousy, greediness, envy and other negative feelings. It can also be a time for healing as we destroy the roots of a disturbance in our lives.

Adding to this mix is a challenging square between Mars and Saturn today, bringing a time when we face obstacles, blockages, or opposition to our sense of freedom, our drive, and our ambitions. Some may feel a temporary loss of enthusiasm under this transit or a sense of doubt about our plans. The best thing to do for Sunday is to try not to let ourselves get too stressed out and try to refocus this energy into productive things.

Week Ahead – Monday, October 14th through Sunday, October 20th

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is our Aries Full Moon, and we know that Full Moons are a great time for releasing the old and any negative situations, beliefs, or aspects of our lives. This makes room for something new and better to come into or lives. For anyone who is interested, I have a lovely Full Moon reading that looks at various areas of your life that need to be developed such as relationships (of all kinds), decisions you need to make, actions needed to manifest goals, how to nurture your creativity, where you need to protect yourself or establish boundaries, your spiritual development, and what to celebrate at the time of this Full Moon. You can find it here; http://earthspirittarot.com/tarotlunarsolar.htm

Now, we have a lot of planets situated in action signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn). With the Full Moon in Aries, we are focusing on our independence and individuality. We also have the Sun in Libra at this time, which seeks comfort through relationships and sharing. So we need to find a way to balance both our partnerships and self-expression. The challenge we face here is coming from Pluto, who wants to let go and let God and Saturn who wants to set boundaries, both in Capricorn. Saturn brings our focus on the long-term future and Pluto is asking us to release anything that won’t be coming along into our future. Some of us may feel like we are being pulled in all directions right now, but this is the Universe’s way of helping us to realign ourselves. Now, let’s see what this week has in store for us!


On Monday afternoon, the Moon moves into earthy hard-working Taurus, which urges us to accomplish something productive. We have Mercury sextile Saturn helping us along and supporting the creation of a balanced atmosphere for working together. It’s a good time for taking stock of what needs to be adjusted or corrected in our lives. The only challenge we face today is a square between the Sun and Pluto, which can have us feeling like our current circumstances and demands from others are clashing with our own desires. Don’t be surprised if you have runs ins with difficult people at this time or situations that call upon us to muster our strength to stand up for ourselves.


Today brings a supportive trine between Mercury and Neptune. This gives us the chance to communicate our higher vision and gives us some space for daydreaming. Our intuition and imagination run high under this transit. We do need to be careful that we don’t get lost in fantasies though. Use this energy for creative expression. Wednesday is a quiet one for us, with a Void of Course Moon that begins in the morning and lasts until the early hours of Thursday.


In the early morning hours, the Moon shifts into Gemini. This makes the next two days are a good time for quick, short projects, and activities and conversations that don’t require a great deal of focus. It’s a good time for communicating and sharing ideas and perhaps traveling short distances. We also have a trine between Venus and the North Lunar Node, which tends to make us feel more comfortable in our own skin, as well as the social world around us. It’s a good time for fruitful interactions with others. Friday continues with these energies.


In the early hours of Saturday morning, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours. It then moves into comforting Cancer just before Noon, making the focus for this weekend about things that bring us a sense of safety and comfort. It’s good for sharing time with our close inner circle. Mercury and Pluto also come together today, helping us to look beyond the surface of things and so some in-depth investigating.

Sunday brings us a sextile between Venus and Saturn, which is known for romantic yearnings, longings, and fantasies. This is the time to ask yourself if there is a dream of yours, perhaps one you had to shelve for a while, that you can now take down, blow off the dust, and make it come true. This really is a good time for making solid progress though in matters that Venus rules; love, harmony, beauty, balance, finances, values, and material things.

Week Ahead – Monday, October 7th through Sunday, October 13th

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re into our first full week of October and today is Daylight Savings in Australia. We have a restless start to our week and it looks like it will be an active one. We have the Moon still in Capricorn, so focusing on planning ahead and taking care of tasks that need some structure is what it’s all about right now. let’s see what this week has in store for us now.


In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon will go Void of Course for a few hours. It then moves into Aquarius, where we don’t like limitations being imposed on us. The focus is on independence, so tackling those one-man projects, socializing, the new and unusual, and breaking out of our daily routine is in order. We also have an opposition between Mercury and Uranus, which brings a very restless energy. This can cause some issues with being able to fall asleep, or suddenly waking up for no reason. Try to be flexible for today because it can be filled with unexpected occurrences that upset or change our plans. We also have a challenging square between the Sun and Saturn going on in the afternoon. This is a transit where we find a need to practice some healthy boundaries.

Our day begins with the love and money planet, Venus, moving into Scorpio. Venus will be in Scorpio for all of October and is joining Mercury in this sign. This means we can have deep level conversations with those we trust. We have an opposition between Mars and Chiron today as well, where we may be exposed to confrontation, aggression, and feelings of anger that are more intense than we are comfortable with. Some may choose to deal with this therapeutically. As we move into the early evening, the Moon will go Void of Course.


The energies shift to something gentler as the Moon moves into Pisces in the late afternoon. It’s a good time for meditation, movies, and music. We do need to be careful of getting overly involved in other peoples’ drama and problems though. It’s wise to watch out for those who prey on the goodwill of others at this time. Thursday is quiet, with the dreamy and mystical Pisces energy still in play. Friday morning is when the Moon goes Void of Course for the entire day and evening. It’s also the day that Mercury enters it’s Shadow, where it will later go retrograde in about 2 weeks.


In the early hours of Saturday morning, the Moon shifts into energetic Aries. it’s a good time for getting physical to help burn off some of Aries’ excess energy. Some may find it hard to sleep under this influence. This can be an emotionally cathartic few days. Instead of sidling up to a problem, you can attack it head-on. If you’ve been bottling up righteous anger, this Moon gives you the courage to let the truth fly. It brings out the “fight” in everybody. Getting into it with others is always risky, but it provokes change, and sometimes for the better. Mercury makes a friendly trine with the North Node, which can bring us a fresher sense of awareness and allows us to communicate this awareness. There is also an opposition between Venus and Uranus later in the day, which can bring interactions with others that are full of surprises. It’s also a time for sharing some unusual experiences.

Sunday is our Aries Full Moon, where we feel motivated to start fresh. A gut instinct to start something new is with us now, as well as the gumption to do so. Our pioneering impulses are strong, and we feel energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. We may also be tactless and impulsive now. Excess energy is best channeled into physical activity. We also have a sextile between the Sun and Jupiter today, which is a “feel good” kind of energy and one that makes us feel lucky. It’s a time when we can make some progress with our projects. In the late evening, the Moon will go Void of Course.
