Celtic Cross reading

A ten card spread and the most well known throughout history. It has survived so long because the layout of the cards is simple, but powerful. A strong energy has built up around this spread as it has been in use by so many people over the years.

I am also offering discounts on my distant energy healing

Energy healing can clear any emotional blocks that will then begin to heal the physical conditions these cause. Distant healing is based on the idea that a non-visible “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is vibrationally low or out of balance, then we are prone to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more adept to being happy and healthy. Alongside counselling the effects can be significant.

A remote session is done with the practitioner in their clinic or sacred space, and the recipient (you), laying down listening to soft music from the comfort of your own home. It can be effectively performed from any distance, whether you are across the city, or in a different country. Normally 1/2 hr $50.00, now $35.00 Au.

“It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.”
- William Blake

seven of swordsThe Seven of Swords depicts a person stealing swords from a campsite. Taking five and leaving two behind. The theft of the five represents betrayal and leaving two behinds represents the person trying to get away with the deception.

We see in the background that the thief has been noticed and a person is running to catch them with their sword swinging.

This illustration shows us that someone is being dishonest, selfish and deceptive and are trying to walk away undetected but their deception will catch up with them.

Seven of Swords keywords: Betrayal, running away, shirking responsibility, dishonesty, inauthenticity, independence, going it alone, ego, internal politics, control, avoidance, sabotage

When this card comes up in a tarot card reading it is asking you to be cautious. If it is about you it is asking you to have a look at your actions and thought processes.

Are you being selfish, are your main thoughts negative, Are you avoiding reality. Are you trying to get out of a situation without being honest or brave? It isn’t too late to reevaluate your attitudes and character strengths. You can choose to be honorable at any time in your life – regardless of the past.

seven of swords betrayalBy being aware of self sabotaging behaviours we can begin to address them and make changes.

If it is about another person it is heeding you to be careful – you may be being taken for a ride by someone. Someone is not being honest or open, maybe manipulating for their own benefit.

In a love relationship this card will come as a warning that you a have been or are about to be betrayed. The person you love is acting in a selfish way (you may or may not be aware) and if you have any doubts this cards affirms them. They have left you with two swords, don’t be fooled by this – having one foot in the relationship and one foot out is not love.

Direct confrontation will not solve this problem as the person is being cowardly or dishonest. You will have to go on an inner journey to seek answers to this betrayal.

The best you can do is accept the situation for what it is and begin to heal from the betrayal.

seven of swords loveIn some cases this card could mean that your partner wants to go it alone – they are striving for independence. It is possible that this stage can be managed or temporary but when a partner becomes selfish it can be difficult to navigate – all relationships are about two people, not one.

If you have just met someone or are single this card asks you to hold your heart in as this person is either not ready for honest love, is using you for their own ego or life situation or is not trustworthy. It is saying don’t trust too easily – if this person seems too good to be true, you are probably right. Beware your heart is not stolen.

In work, projects or goals this card can mean that someone is sabotaging your work or that the goal is unachievable. If it is sabotage the person can be dealt with but it will take time or there will be a period of loss and/or opposing forces. In some cases it is a signal that you are on the wrong path and it may be time to let go.

seven of swordsSpiritually this card is heeding you to go back to beginners mind. You are not on the right path, something is holding you back, usually the ego mind and negative thoughts.

The external events of your life are showing you a glimpse of your inner life.

You may need to go into retreat to do some soul searching. Some witnessing practice to see how your thoughts are ruling your life. When we confront our negative thoughts or our shadow side we open up to healing and creating better outcomes.

Living in the present, moving away from the things that are upsetting you and finding quiet space to undergo healing are all helpful when this card appears.

Swords are powerful, they can be used to cut through the clutter, they can hurt others, they can create protection….

How are you using your sword?

Donate to Poverty project India

Improve the lives of India’s urban poor

by giving them access to sustainable products that make their lives better.

In April Next year I will be going to India to volunteer for a year on a development program in the slums and I need to raise between $5000 and $10 000 to make this happen. This money will be used for accommodation, materials and infrastructure of the program. Any donations will help make this important program a success.

More about the Energy Poverty Program india slums donate

In the slums in India there is a crisis of energy supply and safe water supply.

Currently in the slums people are using kerosene for lighting and cooking, at a cost of 1/3 of their wages.
Use of this fuel has direct adverse effects relating to a person’s health, safety and general well-being.
This program is introducing solar energy to the slums so as to eliminate the costs and the health issues of seeing and cooking with kerosene.

Burning kerosene for light, particularly in the poorly ventilated confines of a tent home, contributes to indoor air pollution. This pollution causes respiratory illness, which is the second largest cause of premature death in women and young children.

When kerosene is burnt, it releases particulate matter, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and various nitrogen oxides. Exposure to these pollutants has a multitude of detrimental effects on a person’s health. They include increased risk to respiratory disease, reduced oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, immediate changes to pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms, and exacerbation or increased susceptibility to respiratory infections .

The relatively small volume of air space, coupled with generally poor ventilation, compounds exposure levels for people living in a typical tent. This has been likened to smoking more than a packet of cigarettes a day.

Supplying solar energy for cooking and lighting will not only save the low income earners money but will provide a healthier more sustainable energy supply.

Clean water is also an issue in the slums. This program aims to introduce water filters into the slums to improve the illness and death rate of the occupants in the slums.

Togetherness is my favorite word at the moment – make it yours :)
I would like a tarot reading now

Here is my favorite song about togetherness :

You should have slayed the dragons from the unconscious depths of the Full moon eclipse in Aries by now. Or at least had them arise for the final ego slaying.

scorpio new moon tarotIf you have this New moon in Scorpio 23/24 October, should pick you up and teleport you to an entirely new dragon’s lair – I’m thinking one full of unicorns and garden faeries :). (But, if you haven’t, the time machine may implode.)

Well maybe that is a bit light and fluffy – certainly not the usual depths of the deep dark mystery that the Scorpio is most often perceived as.

However, Let us not forget  that the opposite sign Taurus dances up a shadow and as she is ruled by Venus (giver of love, passion and sensuality) an idealistic approach may be in order.

I’m choosing the Hierophant Tarot card for good measure.

New moons are about new beginnings – Taurus is about delicious feminine love and Scorpio is about mystery and sex (in basic terms) – so we have another relationship heavy moony eclipse and I’m excited because this one is about NEW NEW NEW beginnings.

aunicorn scorpioThings may have already shown signs of heating up the week before.

Eclipses sometimes are felt within a week before or a week after. It could be happening on a subconscious level or has been rising slowly to consciousness.

There is usually an air of anticipation felt on a gut level.

The full moon in Aries should have caused endings on a sincere and deep level. We should have passed the worst of the intensity and enormity of that eclipse – if we haven’t this eclipse could be tricky and be a double whamy follow up.

If you did step into your sovereignty and put out the fire of yesteryear’s dragons – from both the inner and outer world – then I think you WILL be sipping cocktails, flying on the back of a unicorn led by faerie sleighs.

Mercury is still retrograde so the unicorns may be traveling backwards and the faeries may need to stop and smell the roses of solitude every now and then to regenerate.

This is a good thing. Go slow. No need to rush.

There may still be some faery dust that needs sweeping. Clean it up and get moving. We want the past to stay behind – but we do want it to be clean and tidy.

So what does all this mysterious metaphor mean?

aunicornUnicorns are an archetype for light, divine and sincere love and faeries, well they are just faeries  – made of magic. Scorpio is a water sign (emotions) ruled by Mars/Pluto (intense) and Taurus is Earthy (grounded) and loving.

In light of relationships we are given an opportunity to move forward to begin all over again with our (hopefully) new found sovereignty.

There is an intensity to Scorpio – they love deep and sometimes dark – they want all or nothing. This is were your sovereignty and the Unicorns going backwards (Mercury) come in to play . Taurus can be serious and practical – this is were the faeries having garden parties come in.

Things could get passionate and a little wild but it sets up a wonderful opportunity to explore a different type of love – one that is sincere, interdependent, intimate and fun.

The reverse is likely if you are still in the dragon’s den with your Aries (me me me ) armor on.

growthBut hopefully you have raised your consciousness and utilised the Mercury retrograde amid the Choas theory and chosen the divine white love of the unicorn and the magic of the faery kingdom.

Mercury retrograde may be still bringing the past to the party but Scorpio wont have a bar of it so things may get heavy if you’ve been hiding under the dragon’s carpet.

There is still time to slip out and let go and throw it all to faery dust as Mercury moves forward two days later .

Making love not war. Finally… what took you so long :)

Here is a link to a more in-depth look at this eclipse

A wonderful way to truly embrace the transformative energies afforded by today’s eclipse is to create a ritual today or tonight

New Moon Scorpio eclipse transformation ritual:

Light a red or white candle and a black (to burn negative energies) if you have one.

grab some pencils or oil chalks (are better) and sit in a quite spot close your eyes and meditate on what you would most need or want to change in your life.

new moon scorpio eclipse ritualOn a piece of paper write a list of all the things you would like to see change or happen. It is best to start it with:
“I am grateful for…. eg – “I am grateful for a loving, kind, present companion” – “I am grateful for my ability to forgive” etc – Don’t be afraid to dig deep and get personal. And be specific and concise.

Choose one of the mandalas below or one of your choice (the one on the left is Taurus and on the right is Scorpio) and draw them on the back of your list – feel free to change the colours and make it your own…

scoprio eclipse October ritualMeditate on your desires and try to feel a sense of receiving and conscious letting go.

When you are done burn the paper (In an old pan or somewhere safe) with the flame of the candle and give thanks.

Sit under the moon quietly for a while and just be.

Let Go

October is a big month astrologically with two eclipses uncovering surprise completions and new beginnings – think back to the cardinal cross and eclipses in April

major transformation is in the cards… full moon June 23
But tomorrow, the Grand fire trine, that has been burning the debris up, peaks (more surprises, pay attention to what has been happening over the last few days, it gives a clue to the unfolding of the Lunar eclipse on the 8/9th).

Everyone I meet these days bandies around the saying “Let go”  like its going out of fashion. But, this Luna cycle may just leave you no choice, to the point where the words will no longer be a mantra of good will but will become an active fully embodied process – unless you want to be left behind with the past and all its unsavoury burdens, duty and suffering.

Personally I’m locking the doors, switching off the phones and the computer, baking pies, drawing Mandalas and dancing naked to 80′s classics – I cancelled all clients this day also :)

full moon june 23 SupermoonThe April full moon eclipse was in Libra with the sun in Aries. This month it is reversed. Moon in Aries – Sun in Libra.

It was also the beginning of a Tetrad (an ongoing series of eclipses) and this month is the second of four in the Tetrad series – So it aint over by a long shot.

Aries focus is on action (sometimes aggressive as ruled by Mars) and self fulfillment. Libra is about relationship and bonding and love (as ruled by Venus). So it’s a relationship heavy eclipse cycle.

Uranus is coming into the mix and is the planet of surprise – so it is expected that something shocking may happen – something hidden may be revealed or a surprise may knock you for six (Aries/Uranus, scary). Good or bad – will depend upon the planets in your personal charts and of course Karma = destiny verses free will (the old evolutionary tester). The Justice tarot card explains this well :)

Then later in the month Scorpio does a partial dance with Taurus – apparently this is more positive and lighter eclipse – but I have my doubts with Scorpio being the main player… This is the time for new beginnings though so it could just be rather sweet – Taurus ruled by Venus gives me some hope.

I am not an astrology expert so ( Here are some articles that delve into the possible effects on our life and consciousness around this Eclipsing month).

trueAlthough, I have lived through the eclipses of the past three years consciously and they have been mind-blowingly transformative – get it? mind blowing – hopefully you hold your heart center and listen closely to the truth and create right action.

Yet, the pot may be boiling as Mercury is retrograde this month, so I wouldn’t be making any rash decisions. I would make conscious effort to go with the flow – allow things to sink in and watch, observe, stay grounded and act when the energies subside and you have ALL the information :)…. LET GO, LET GO, LET GO.

Here is my full moon Ritual to help you ground, create peace and hopefully feel love as these eclipses illuminate our souls

Rose resin ritual

Full Moon Ritual for clearing, letting go and bringing in honest love

Gather together

a sage stick
a red and pink and black candle
three insence sticks of your choice
rosemary, sage, mugwort (or any herbs you choose
a rock or crystal
a glass of water and some salt in a bowl

You can do this in side or outside but you will have to stand under the moon at some stage :)

Light the sage stick and Cast a circle and then place all the above items in a circle.

Repeat this incantation (under the moon) three times.

To the moon in honor and grace,
Circling the skies with your changing face.
In your fullness and brightest light,
I call upon your strongest might.
Grant me your blessings in ritual and life,
Allow me success and guide me from strife.
I fully extend my thanksgiving and love.
Glory to that which is above.

So mote it be”

Now sit quietly in meditation under the moon for no less than 5 minutes (the longer the better).

Empty the water in the garden and throw the salt behind your back for protection – put the crystal somewhere safe and allow the candles to burn out. Use the herbs in your cooking over the next few days remembering to give thanks :)

The darkness had dawned (some 12 years ago)

In that moment all strength had gone, I was crippled, the darkness had dawned in the very core of me and I fell to the floor weeping.

Tarot_Death_by_artmagic99I had been crying for days, the loss was too much, I was left alone, there was nobody left and I had this child, this beautiful child to guide and feed and psychologise and love but I had nothing left. The dream was over.

But this day the grief took hold and I lay in fetal position for 4 hrs in the hall way, a spontaneous weakness, a dark crippling uncontrollable loss of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual control. I fell. Weeping.

Like mini visions between the space of my wretched tears, my entire life flashed before me. I saw every decision, every interaction and every relationship I had ever endured.

I felt each emotion they invoked, I saw their meaning, like a shadow in the backdrop of the activity. Confronted by the stark reality of their truth.

On the fourth hour I began to call to God/Goddess/Universe (who I had abandoned 20 years prior in my adolescence), screaming for answers. This seemed futile, and finally upon the breath I asked in reverence for forgiveness.

Six of swords tarotMy breath took me over and silence filled me. I called out for truth “Please give me  truth, please I will do whatever it takes.” There was a whisper in my ear “you don’t want the truth, it is hard journey, much suffering will occur, you will have to let go, you will have to show yourself”

I spoke back with confidence and determined plea “I want surrender, I want truth, I want to find my soul. I want to live in the ordinariness of truth.  I will do whatever it takes. Anything is better than this.”

Suddenly I was filled with a spontaneous light. A white light had filled my entire body and surrounded me. My mind activity completely ceased and I was laying there in peace and utter stillness.

Colours started filling my vision, strange prisms and circles and spurts of illuminated patterns. No thoughts, just these beautiful and somehow meaningful colours.

The face of Buddha appeared, then Jesus, then Allah, then Mary Magdaline, Yoganunda. and many others that I was not familiar with, but who were like au fait strangers. And so began the paradox of awakening and truth.

Each face presenting itself to me then moving into my mind and flowing into my body. There was no intellectual recognisition, it was just occurring. No judgement, no analysis just a spaciousness, a peace that was expansive and still.

This finally ended and I lay there for some time until a voice whispered in my ear “meditation, you have been wanting to meditate for years, there is no-one  stopping you now. Begin now”

My mind started to return. It told itself that madness had taken me. That I had finally lost the plot. That those who had left me had been sane to do so. That those that had come before me stating ‘you’re crazy’, your’e weird, you’re so different” had been right all along.

But something was different in me, some connectedness to this madness, an acceptance. So I decided in that moment to allow my madness to come forward, “they aint seen nothing yet” , To embrace it and to let it pore out of me. I’d held it in too long.

I went to the computer and Googled ‘meditation” I downloaded a free trial meditation from a place called Centrepoint in America. I listened to it straight away. Immediately I went back into that state of spaciousness, the pure light and no thought. I felt deep intense peace.

I then looked up all the Ascended Masters and Gods and discovered that the ones I had seen in my visions where tangible – their pictures sat before me on the computer like a daydream. Lakshmi, Athena, Isis, Rumi. I felt a union with my so called madness.

The empress tarot meaningI decided I was going to be celibate and alone for one year and dedicate myself to meditation and inner enquiry and to be the most loving, strong and available person to my daughter and all those that came into my life from then on.

And there followed an extraordinary opening, an awakening and an adventure of love and nature and bonding and discovery and perpetual healing that I could never have before imagined.

Needless to say it was transcendental but wrapped in the ordinary, coated in the intensity of pain and joy;  an experience of deeper loving, releasing of anger and shedding, shedding of the ego – this madness that I had been so connected to.

And here the real story begins…to be continued…

The Dark Night of the soul is a time of spiritual cleansing – it happens to many on the path at some stage and it it can happen more than once. its a dark process where the soul seems to leave as the battle of the ego fights for control – Here is a couple of really good articles to help describe further :)

The dark night of the soul by Brian Alger                 Dark night of the soul by K Ferlic
The dark night of the soul by Gary Mcgee

I now offer support and guidance to get through the dark night and to help with spiritual awakening
