Nota Bene…First Mondays

An announcement of some particular importance…Beginning on Monday 3rd of November and thereafter on the first Monday of every month I am available to speak with from and between the hours of 10 till 8. That will be on a first come, first served basis, so if you are meant to get through to me, you will! Details to be found on my contact page.
You may be someone entirely new to any/all of my services and in need of some direction. You may be someone I’ve worked with before, perhaps a long time ago and are unsure of how to proceed. You could have a very specific question to ask, or merely want to chat with me to see if we resonate, which is a good idea from both our viewpoints, as there will be no obligation to proceed any further if we don’t.
Be speaking with you soon,
Love and Light,

A Seer’s Path

As Samhain approaches the veil shrouding this world from the other realms becomes ever more flimsy and those of us who tread the web betwixt and between are in severe demand. Our loved ones, both long gone and recently passed, hover keenly, often anxiously, pressing towards the light, wanting and needing to offer their wisdom, support and encouragement to those who remain their family for eternity. This they can do now, as the Esoteric climate of the second half of the year when Dark Winter rules creates the perfect conditions for going within. When we go within we are receptive to Magical insights and processes. As Nature enters deep slumber and the energy of Death surrounds us we can contact our forbears and receive their wisdom. This preserves and enhances the web that stretches through many, many generations of human families and beyond.
So what of the living? What do they/we want at this time? The overwhelming and unrelenting demand is and has always been for psychic/intuitive readings, the primary focus of which is The Relationship. The human capacity to be endlessly fixated on the illusion of romantic love never ceases to astound and disappoint me. Please bear in mind, if you believe you are in love with someone, then know you are in the infatuation stage.Loving only begins when that has passed and the process of knowing the other is occurring. For how can you insist you love someone if you don’t know them? Remember that and if you do ask me, or any other Seer for a Relationship reading, make sure there really is a relationship there to read!
Rest assured, you cannot escape your destiny. What’s yours will come to you. This doesn’t negate free will, although from time to time it may seem that chaos will ensue. Trust in your Higher Self’s guidance and stillness will be reclaimed.
Yes Samhain is the most perfect and powerful time of the year to explore divination and to experience many other Esoteric rituals and practices. Let’s not waste the opportunity on the superficial, but engage fully with The Dark Mother, honour Her with offerings and appreciation and ask for Her help in understanding the cycle of birth/death/rebirth…for these are the things that matter…and all else is cut away.
Gather oak leaves, bring in pine cones, collect sage and rosemary, carve a pumpkin and light candles to focus on keeping anything negative from the past away from the future and blessed be.

The Moth and The Flame.

Are you ready to begin the true business of living? That is of living your life, for you, authentically, no one else in mind…your passions all yours, not what you think/feel/believe they “should” be, but what they really are. If you are then ok, great, time to be happy. There is much to be thankful for. Yes, there remain many mountains to climb and some may involve a rapid black run downward ski, but you will survive the excitement and you will be all the stronger for it. If the answer is no, not ready, not now, quite possibly not ever, then you are in for a severe scorching, at the very least, from the powerful line up of fire planets and the combustible energies that surround them. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!
Firstly Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow and as the Sun is close by and so too the planet Venus, what was a secret becomes abruptly unveiled in all its not so glorious glory. Power shifts so quickly to and fro, those without good sea legs are likely to feel pretty queasy and will stagger about in an attempt to find a balance that will continue to be elusive, at least for the rest of this month..but it will feel like longer.
The lunar eclipse in Aries on the 8th illuminates the Shadow Self in such an obvious and straightforward manner that there can be no more believable excuses not to deal with what needs to change. The energy from the Harvest Moon facilitates this work wonderfully well, cutting through Karma like a knife through butter. While the newly exposed emotions may feel a little ragged around the edges, the sense of freedom engendered makes this period a truly Magical one. Time to indulge in our Wild Nature, to be expansive, to take some risks and to challenge authority with good grace.
In our most intimate relationships the prevailing desire is for further closeness. The closeness we want is one based on truth, on balance and on equality. In cases where the foundations are not thus, there are deep vibrational changes afoot that will incrementally evolve into earthquakes. The landscapes of our relationships will be permanently and irrevocably altered. There will be plenty of opportunities to fine sift through the debris and mull everything over, but for many “over” will be the defining word.
The Light that remains for us after this troubling and exhilarating period comes on the 23rd via the solar eclipse of the New Moon in Scorpio. It is this Light that will encourage us to see the beauty in ourselves, in others and in our World.

X = Balance

The autumn equinox approaches, that time of perfect balance, equal hours of light and dark, when we may celebrate what has been achieved and also make plans for our next harvest. X is the Rune known as “Gifu”, it encapsulates balance, for it is a representation of the process of an equal exchange of energies and of the Great Wheel of the Universe. It is a power that guides as it binds and in so doing, helps the attainment of harmonious relationships.
Keep in mind the balance and harmony theme, for now comes reference to another “X”, OR “x’s”…the past partner, friend, colleague, possibly patterns of behaviour..note the word “past”. During Mabon, the middle of harvest festival, it is not uncommon for X’s to appear and this year is far from being an exception. Maybe the Grand Fire Trine on the 29th, of Mars, Jupiter and Uranus has something to do with it, as that will certainly foster the ideal conditions for obsessions and paranoia, traditional territory for X’s of all descriptions.
However unpleasant these blasts from the past may appear, a greater good will emerge from the rubble. As we are shaken to our core, the roots of our Spiritual pain are revealed and once so, then cleansed, refreshed and revitalised. Visionary thinking may resume and a pure form of light surrounds us, a necessity as we approach the time of the Dark Mother, of Hecate, Kali and Demeter. When the Bringers of Darkness come we better understand our Shadow selves and true progress may be made that will ultimately assist our passage back up towards the Light.
In gratitude for all the gifts you have received this harvest, decorate your sacred space with abundant natural products: pine cones, corn, pomegranate, grapes on the vine, dried flowers and fruits…any and all reveal the glory of perfection, something we all delight in.

Tea and Toast

We all love to be comforted, to feel cosy and safe amongst the idealised familiar, the nostalgic fairyland realm we never really lived in, but pretended to. Nowadays we recreate that feeling in our homes. They become un theatre de banlieu, a suburban Downton where we take the starring roles and mostly from necessity, all the lesser domestic ones too.
We also derive comfort from being told that everything will turn out well in the end, for that is what we all want to hear, hence the “happy ever after” theme beloved of fairy tales and Hollywood. It is the main impetus for seeking out a psychic reading, an astrological forecast and/or divination in its many and varied wide forms.
For now…just be comforted. Let the gentleness of the month, when you allow yourself to experience its exquisite nature, wrap itself around you, reassure you with its magnificent bounty and merely hint at the more extreme times to come. Appreciate all that you have in your life that is good now, without wondering, worrying about what you don’t. Acquire relative serenity, if full cannot yet be managed, for all too soon comes the more demanding challenges of the Autumn equinox, of Mabon and the bringers of darkness.
Remember the wisdom of Socrates… ” the way to gain a good reputation is to endeavour to be what you desire to appear.”

Love and Let Love.

Destiny, karma, chi, fate and/or the stars. Take your pick of these energies that are beyond the comprehension and control of most people…these are the forces that place us where we most need to be and at the exact time that we most need to be there. For the next few days and culminating over the weekend the climate is embarrassingly romantic. Strangely so perhaps when we consider the world environment in its savage disarray, where even in the quietest of places there is an increasing undertow of violence. Perhaps that is why…if ever a reason is required for love.
While the dance of Saturn, Mars and the Sun, an uncomfortable triangle, produce a strenuous and draining effect, the glorious partnering of Venus and Jupiter positively shimmers with the gifts all good fairies seek to bestow, those of luck and love and of luck in love, which is where we all most appreciate it.
The new moon in Virgo which follows the weekend supports and encourages the romance to flourish and also facilitates creativity in abundance, an essential ingredient when it comes to matters of the heart.
Time then to listen intently to the quiet murmors of your heart and to ask that your Highest needs may be met and we will see just what happens next…

High Tide

Tonight the Sea seeks to cover us with Her wisdom. The Aquarius Full Moon Supermoon is watery in the extreme. The message is loud and clear: clean up your act, or the Universe will do so for you!
After this highest of tides, many will be left stranded and many more will be revealed in a stripped down and shamefully exposed form. If we are not to be amongst the wounded, we must explore these sea depths allowing ourselves to be lost, at least for a time, for only then will we be able to find ourselves, our fugitive past finally surrendered, our minds made beautiful and spacious again.
Life is to be deeply lived and yet must be lived lightly, a talent few are able to manage and yet now becomes the necessity for us all. The continuous cycle, the greenery of nature, reassures and reaffirms that of which we are a part and not apart from. The rest, all other…a benign emptiness. We may seek to rest there a while and reassemble our essential Souls, but it is no dwelling place for eternity.
More growth, further adventures both good and bad invite us back into the fray.To give up now is not an option.

Snap Your Fingers.

Here we go again. Hello, Goodbye and the life that exists in being in between. Harvest is upon us. We may pretend during the odd dog day that Summer still reigns supreme and so holiday mode may too, yet the golden fuzz lining our fair fields tells of a year’s end. What we have given we are due to receive. Whether abundant and plentiful, meagre and scarce,something somewhere in between, any and all our responsibility and ours alone. Here then, is our opportunity to begin afresh, with next year’s harvest and our own cycle of growth.
Endings, parting of ways, new and further horizons, all intrigue and alarm in similar measures. A farewell of sorts is long overdue, thus avoiding asinine questions, bizarre insinuations and that special awkwardness which comes at the end of a long journey, when parting has been too long prepared for.
All at once comes the time of travelling alone, now that subconscious delaying tactics are too obvious to be believable. The enforced period of idleness this brings allows those deeply embedded hooks a tender extraction. Instead of groping for some meaning I, You, We …we become meaning.
Awaken quickly people. Take up position for the end game.

We Must Do This Again…Sometime.

This coming weekend brings a full moon Super moon, set to challenge us further when we are weary and longing for some gentle respite. Perhaps I merely speak for myself and everyone else is ready and gagging for some further far reaching changes…perhaps not…anyway that’s what we are getting and so better to be forewarned.
Those with the enlarged egos of old Etonians will be relentless in the pursuit of self entitlement. Get ready to stand well back from the trough before the feeding frenzy begins. This Capricorn moon will illuminate the ugly disparities that characterise our particular “society” and our situation within it, or indeed, without it. Those who feel marginalised, misplaced and overlooked will feel increasingly so, allowing internal tension and disquiet to build up to dangerous levels.
If violent reactiveness can be avoided it will be possible to see far above this mundane plane and thus elevate consciousness accordingly…but that remains a big “if”. When the structure and order of everyday life is so obviously changing and so rapidly, then insecurity manifests on a global level.
We are already feeling it and have been for quite a while.
How can we experience these energies more positively? Is such a thing even possible? Have we the will to do so? The answers are there to be found, in our own bodies and beings. Time now to focus on health, on strengthening the body and with it to realign the mind back onto the Soul’s path. There we will discover more detailed information about our longings and our purpose. Then we can move beyond the intense moods and feelings of crisis point and into fresh and lighter unchartered territories, places where we can be passionate without the dangerous combustible elements of unexpressed rage.
Much that is unfolding during this period is around Karmic family ties. The family may be blood or Spiritual, whatever the link, the essence of it will be exhaustively examined and it is more than likely that its essence will alter. The family, yours and mine is being reinvented. That’s heavy Magic by anyone’s standards.

Harness Creative Potential

The title to this piece was to have been “Abyss”…but having considered that to be somewhat alarming given the current reactionary environment I have opted for the more positive approach. But there’s really no sugar coating this one, especially given I’m about to quote Nietzsche, so if you are of a nervous disposition take a good slurp of Rescue Remedy and read on…
He writes..”if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you”, a statement he makes when speaking of monsters and monstrous things, actions and reactions…but for me the abyss both before us and within us represents the Great Void, the place of the unmanifest, the endless sea of unconsciousness, out of which comes everything that may ever be created. It is a place of power and it is scary because of that power.
We are now faced with our own abyss, one that we cannot deny or diminish. It is the pure ground of our being, the primeval chaos that heralded our existence and may announce our demise. The small world reality that we have known, the value system we have adopted and operated within is being revealed as long dead, even as its ghost lingers. All that we pursued is being and having to be abandoned and radical alternatives are presenting themselves as the only viable routes forward.
As we are released from the restrictive, the antiquated and the corrupt, we find ourselves swirling around in the unfamiliar ( for most of us ) waters of subversive energy…Here it is possible to resonate with the psyche of the lowest Tribal frequencies and join the race for recognition and power and thereby miss this enormous opportunity for unprecedented Spiritual growth. My suggestion is quite simply, Don’t.
Don’t do the obvious. Dive underneath all the programming. Face the abyss calmly and with humour. Plumb your own depths and then swim upwards into the Light..The Light is you!
Find out who you really are and begin enjoying the whole of your existence. How? By embracing your creativity, discover it is there by not taking No for an answer. Play until you find one. Resonate with joy, not despair. All is well. Honest.
