Mars returns to its position in an individual’s natal chart approximately every two years. In Astrology this event is known as a Mars Return. It is analogous to a Solar Return, which happens when the transiting Sun returns to the position of the individual’s natal Sun, otherwise known as our birthday! Obviously, we do not celebrate our Mars Returns in the same way as our Solar Returns, although Mars does bring with it some significant themes when it crops up again in our chart.
Mars is the planet traditionally associated with the male gender, and male roles. It represents competition, sports, and inner drive and motivation. It is also associated with the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, which provides individuals with a sense of reward for their efforts. Mars is further associated with the hormone testosterone and governs raw sexual desires and passion. Read the rest of this entry »
As a parent, I’m very familiar with the disciplinary technique known as the time-out. I personally do not use this method for my two children, but I’ve read lots of parental literature that discusses the concept. I’ve also dealt with daycare providers and teachers who use this technique with their students.
I recently had some difficult feelings surface in my own life, as I continue to work on my crown chakra. After doing some craniosacral work, I experienced feelings of unworthiness considering my new career path. I heard a toxic inner voice whispering, “You’ll never be good enough, no matter which career path you choose.”
Then I took a time-out. I took some days off from doing psychic work. I walked. I had a massage. I nourished my soul. Read the rest of this entry »
‘Forgettery’ is a game we all engage in from time to time. We see this game played out in relationship dramas, career concerns, or even just in a sense of generalized anxiety. It occurs when we forget who we really are, and find ourselves out of alignment with our Soul.
It can manifest in feelings of not being enough – a victim, not smart enough, being broken, or disconnected and separate from others. In my daily Tarot card draws, it often comes up for me as the Star card reversed, or maybe the Eight, or Nine of Swords.
So what happens when we find ourselves here? The first step out is to recognize what is happening. Once we can acknowledge this ‘not-so-good’ feeling, we can sit with it for a while and then recognize that this feeling is coming from our thoughts… and thoughts can be changed. We are deserving and worthy of everything we desire. Why not? We can heal this. Read the rest of this entry »
If you’ve been feeling stuck, depressed, or just in need of change, tap into the power of Feng Shui. This ancient Chinese art, of arranging the home for maximum energetic potential, is easier than you think to apply in your everyday life.
The best way to start is to create routines and rituals for yourself. Everything in the natural world exists according to a series of daily patterns or routines, and we are no different! Take time each day to meditate, incorporate gentle physical activity such as a walk or yoga, sit down and eat mindfully at each meal. It’s also crucial to create a sacred space to escape from the stresses and sensory input of the modern world.
Are you the kind of person who finds it difficult to start things? Make a dream board filled with visual representations of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations, then place it where you can see it multiple times a day. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people encounter negative energies in their workplace. Some of my clients have experienced co-workers who are major backstabbers, employers who treat them unfairly, and just a generally negative vibe altogether! There are, however, some spiritual things you can do right now to protect yourself and your energy in such circumstances.
The Universe sometimes is using people, places and things to tell us to either make changes in our own lives, or move on to another place of employment. This is where a good psychic advisor can help you determine whether you should stay, or go. The point is to pay attention to the signs that show up in your life.
In the meantime, it is good to use the powerful energy of the Universe, and the spiritual and metaphysical tools at your disposal, to help you get through these times of turbulence. Here are some psychic protection tips I have personally used with success in my life. Read the rest of this entry »
At first I was amazed that the angels would help me, as I am no one special and I thought that you had to be a saint or something to have the angels come in to your life. However, I have learned from them that they are here to help anyone and everyone who needs it, you only need to ask.
You do not need to wait for them to make contact. Reach out to them and ask for their help. I was in danger at that time, and they had to interfere to save me, but you can ask them to help you before circumstances become so dire. Read the rest of this entry »
Mercury is the planet of communication and technology. So, when Mercury is in retrograde, everything involving communication and technology tend to go haywire: flight delays; errors with online passwords; taxi drivers showing up at the wrong time and place; people arguing over nonsense; constant traffic jams; computer crashes; drama and gossip at the office; misunderstandings with friends; or text messages delivered to the wrong person (who also happened to be the person the text was about).
Mercury passes the Earth in its orbit three or four times every year. As it makes it rounds, Mercury appears to slow down, stop in its tracks and then spin backwards. This retrograde ‘movement’ lasts a few weeks, until the planet turns direct again and continues to move forward. Read the rest of this entry »
Work, family, friends and intimate relationships can take their toll on everyone, but can send an empath into a tail spin. It’s crucial for an empath to be clear which feelings and emotions are coming from them, as opposed to those coming from someone else.
Empaths have been compared to sponges soaking up all the energy and feelings surrounding them. Sooner or later the sponge becomes saturated and cannot absorb any more. Instead of finding a spiritual practice that resonates for them, some empaths will shut down or self-medicate with food, alcohol or excessive caffeine in order to feel relief.
