The three-week period called Mercury Retrograde is without a doubt, one of the most notoriously negative and stigmatized astrological events known. Mercury goes retrograde three or four times every twelve months, depending on the timing of its retrograde cycles during a given calendar year.
Mercury is in retrograde again this month until December 22nd. This time it is in the sign of Sagittarius, which poses a special challenge. Mercury rules the signs of Gemini and Virgo. When Mercury transits the opposing signs of Sagittarius and Pisces, it is said to be in its detriment. In addition, its retrograde path will intersecting with the planet Saturn, which is ‘The Great Malefic Planet’, due to its hard life lessons. Read the rest of this entry »
Whilst on a sojourn in the tender land of parochial goodness, I have found nature to be preferential and discerning, not at all encompassing and sappy, mind the pun! It has been as if there has been an awakening in the last few months of communication between all the species that has revealed intelligence far beyond ours, and it chooses whether it wants to talk to us.
What I have found is that they are profoundly annoyed by some humans’ attention. As an animal empath, I have found it profoundly disturbing to see the neglect against animals by their owners, whilst they can understand and not appreciate the messages from their pets. Read the rest of this entry »
The answer might surprise you. I sometimes ask questions to help clarify and understand the information and feelings I am picking up around your situation. A truly beneficial reading should always include an exchange of information, with questions and answers from both parties.
Once you, as the client, understand why I am asking certain questions, you will find yourself far more satisfied with the reading in the end. You will be left with hope, a greater understanding, and a plan of action to move forward. Here’s a prime (yet very shortened) example of why I might ask you a question during your reading.

Whenever I do laundry, I tend to think of my grandma, especially when I take out the clothes and un-wrinkle each item, before tossing it into the dryer. I then think of something she said back when I was a young girl. She said it is like a gift to do laundry, as it gives you time to relax and meditate.
She was a wise woman. Sometimes when we are doing mindless things it can be the perfect time to just think! Doing the laundry, I often think of things, deeply. And sometimes I actually receive the answers to questions I have had in the back of my mind for quite some time. Read the rest of this entry »
After my first encounter with spirit in 1987, at a mediumship evening at a spiritualist church, I started attending Sunday services regularly. This was not because I had suddenly become overtly religious. It was just to get more spirit messages during that particular part of each service! I was totally mesmerized by the whole concept of communication with the spirit world and enjoyed hearing the messages given to others almost as much as those that were given to me.
One evening, I received a phone call from my friend Betty, whom I had met at the church. She ran both the weekly meditation and healing evenings. She explained that there was a registration sheet for upcoming mediumship classes and that my name was on it. I informed her that there must be some mistake, because I hadn’t put my name on any list whatsoever. She laughed and said that she had put my name on the list, because after getting to know me during her evening programs, she had a feeling that I would enjoy the classes.

In the summer of 1987, nearly a year after my parents died just a few days apart, I attended a mediumship evening at one of the spiritualist churches in Toronto. I had never been to a spiritualist church before, however, I had met a friend for lunch earlier in the day and she told me about the upcoming event that evening. Neither of us had ever heard of such a thing before. Unfortunately, my friend was unable to attend because she was on her way out of town, but I decided to give it a try on my own.
The church was located in a shopping plaza, on the second level, above a store. As I went up the very steep steps into parts unknown above, I was not only curious, but also quite skeptical. The room was already packed when I got there, so I sat right near the door, just in case these people started performing any weird rituals, or so other strange stuff. I figured that I could be down the stairs and out the door in a flash, if need be! Read the rest of this entry »
Plants are everywhere, even in urban environments – from the windowsill potted plant to the hundred-year-old oak in a city park. What you may not know is that plants, just like people and animals, are psychic and react strongly to the energies around them.
In a well-known experiment, scientist Cleve Backster, who was at the time working with police departments to develop polygraph (lie detector) machines, attached a plant to one of these machines. He found that the plant detected intent. For example, the plant reacted with humanlike responses, such as fear and anxiety, to his thoughts of burning the plant.
The plant also showed an empathic response to pain, such as when Backster cut his finger. The results were even the same when he directed his thoughts toward the plant from some distance away. All this from a common potted plant found in an office! Read the rest of this entry »
When I first began to converse with Spirit, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I was receiving these messages and listening to them, but I never really put much thought into it. It wasn’t until I consciously acknowledged this conversation was happening, that the momentum really started to build. It was then that I realized my guides had been with me all along!
In my experience, the most important step you can take in opening a conversation with Spirit, is to acknowledge that this is your intent. Your angels and guides are always with you – but they need your permission to help you! Remember to ask them often to be near you and to help you and guide you.
When you need direction, ask them for a sign. Then be patient and watchful. Spirit communicates in many ways, sometimes using number sequences, or animals, maybe a song you hear over and over again wherever you go. These are just a few examples, but Spirit will try to get your attention any way it can and will typically use signs and symbols that will be meaningful to you specifically. It’s important to be open to receiving these messages, and not to dismiss any ‘coincidences’ you may encounter. Read the rest of this entry »
