  • 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.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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

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.


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.


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 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.


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

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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

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.


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.


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.


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.
