February always reminds me of love. It is the month during which we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and with every leap year it is also creates the opportunity for women to ask men out on a date, or to propose marriage. In February, the promise of Spring and new life is also in the air.
The energy of Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, and planetary ruler of both Libra and Taurus, is deeply inherent in all of us. Her role in our life can be interpreted through our individual natal astrological charts. Venus rules what we value, and love. It is a feminine planet, and represents our caring, graciousness, and capacity for love and affection. It also shows what we value and the effect we have on others.
Venus has a different effect on men and women. We all hold small traces and traits of the opposite sex inside of us, and it is wise to seek balance and expression of those energies. Venus in a man’s chart is his feminine ideal. In a woman’s chart, Venus embodies her femininity. Read the rest of this entry »
The 22 Major Arcana cards, starting with The Fool and leading all the way to The World, are all archetypes that represent hidden knowledge that many centuries ago were privy to those who worked closely with spirit.
When we consult a Tarot deck, the Major Arcana cards take us on a journey into another world, accessing ancient truths and divine law. In psychic Tarot readings the Major Arcana cards can describe attributes of people and their character traits, but most often represent the spiritual lessons we go through in life.

Feeling a little stressed, disconnected and alone? First you’re not alone. And second, don’t worry, you’ve got this! Just like your computer, perhaps what you need is a spiritual re-boot. It’s time to reconnect with your spiritual self.
Sometimes fear of the unknown, the stress of the day, a certain season, such as the winter holidays, or anxiety about things that seem to be out of our control, can feel quite overwhelming. Here are some ways to become a little more connected to your spiritual self.
Seek Divine Guidance
Enlist the help of Divine energy – God, Goddess, your Angels, Spirit Guides. Seek divine help. Know that you are heard and never, ever alone. Read the rest of this entry »
In my previous post I mentioned some astrological points that are in all our charts, namely, Lilith. This concept in Astrology is named after the female demonic figure Lilith in Jewish mythology. There are so many dark stories and myths surrounding Lilith, and therefore some scary points in Astrology have been named after her. Her name evokes thoughts of the mysterious, malevolent, sinister, forbidden and catastrophic. The negative is certainly valid, and it is up to the native to act out these energies in an, if possible, positive way.
I also described a not-so-evil feature of Lilith – one that came to me through meditation. The positive energy I received was about survival. This dark goddess is not all bad. She shows us how to work through situations we can’t always describe to others. Read the rest of this entry »
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I always feel much more connected to subtle energies, elementals and spirits, as though they are like people we see in everyday life. The veil between the worlds thin as we approach the end of the natural year. Lately, I began feeling even more connected to Goddess energies than I usually am this time of the year.
I have also been doing some serious thinking on the mysterious Lilith Points that are in everyone’s Astrology charts. Lilith is described as the point in our Astrological charts that is all and everything that cannot be explained, but is known as “what is.” I found myself meditating on this puzzling description and the answer eventually came to me. It was not as sinister as I thought it would be, and yet it is scary to think about. Read the rest of this entry »
Traditionally a total eclipse was seen as a source of dark energy or a bad omen, because the Sun’s energy is blocked and the Earth goes dark for a while. However, I believe this is a misconception in regards to the actual energetic and spiritual attributes of a solar eclipse.
When a solar eclipse takes place, it heightens the energy towards the Earth and all humans, but especially towards those on a spiritual journey. This is a good time to meditate, reflect and successfully perform personal spiritual rituals or practices. And yes, because the energy pull shifts, it means that you will feel the difference if you allow yourself to.
However, there are positive and negative energetic aspects to a solar eclipse, if you are not careful. If you are in a state of peace, you will experience enhanced peace at this time. If you are in a state of unrest, you will have an enhanced state of unrest. It is imperative to be in a good space and be mindful of your thoughts, words and actions during this eclipse.

If you are a passionate, committed person in a field that has become commercialized, it can be so very frustrating. One of the ways I deal with my frustration is with humor. Therefore, if you do not have a sense of humor, or take things very seriously, please do not read any further. If you do, you will be proceeding at your own risk.
I recently worked at a spiritual faire, which no members of the public bothered to attend. It ended up being just the bunch of ‘gifted’ vendors who spent the day talking incessantly about themselves, telling each other the same amazing stories, over and over again. These stories are meant to prove that they were meant to share their ‘gift’ with humanity. Not mentioned in any of these tales is the family money, or lawsuit money, alimony, family or spousal support payments, which helped to finance their perceived notions of being ‘chosen’ to do this work.

The Isle of Avalon is a mythical place of healing, psychic learning, crafting, and the life and times of King Arthur. Figures such as Morgan Le Fay, King Arthur and Merlin the Magician are just a few legendary names associated with this Holy Isle. Though no longer here in the physical world, Avalon is still accessible through the inner worlds by way of meditation or immrama, an Irish-Welsh word meaning ‘spiritual journey on the astral plane.’
Avalon was known as training ground for priestesses who dedicated their life to spirituality, and to the Great Mother Goddess. These women trained in the arts of clairvoyance, herbalism, weaving and devotion to the Divine feminine. Read the rest of this entry »
