FEED TWO BIRDS FROM ONE HAND & PAY IT FORWARD!

As 2020 unfolds with greater intensity and uncertainty, we’re collectively realising our forced dependence on capitalism and our personal impact on each other.

As a sole proprietor without government or family financial assistance, I have created an option for those who are able to pay it forward so we can feed two birds from one hand! By paying it forward you are offering a reading in trying times to someone else, while also supporting me and my business.

You can choose an individual recipient, an anonymous person from a specific group / community / workplace or just pay it forward as an anonymous offering. Specific amounts can also be allotted to help supplement the cost of a reading for someone else.

If you’ve had a reading with me or you enjoy what I post, please consider sharing this or making an offering if you are able.

Like a stimulus package, continuing the flow of resources between us keeps all boats afloat with the rising tide. I appreciate any support and will in turn be able to offer it back to others.

Stay safe out there!

Pisces Season: the path of least resistance

Click to image to watch the video. Video source: @beachcityco

It’s Pisces Season & Mercury is STILL retrograde! Do you feel like it’s been Rx for a while now…like forever…or at least since that Gemini Full Moon back in December?

Pisces loves the deep dive. The waters of emotion stir & we remember what gives us meaning, what moves us & what connects us. As our life-giving Sun edges closer & closer toward Neptune we’re made increasingly aware of the clash between our ideals, our dreams & visions ~ & the cold hard reality being dished up by the clusterfuck over in Capricorn.

We’re dealing with an invisible virus, injunctions & arrests are blurring the lines between sovereign territory & state legislation, a waaaay too long US Presidential election campaign blows in hope one day & defeat the next & Australia is running out of toilet paper…while we’re all trying to catch up with the grief we’re carting around day to day.

Thankfully, there’s a steady groove that can be found between Pisces & Capricorn along the path of least resistance.


Capricorn sets the goal posts, highlighting where reform needs to occur, which behaviours & habits & power structures we’ve outgrown… while Pisces urges us to ride the pressure of that rising wave to steer us forward. You can’t push shit up a hill, so wherever the momentum is coming from use it to guide you toward your ideal reality & watch for signposts for where change & growth need to occur.


We’re in this for the long haul. Utilise Mercury Retrograde to help you gauge when it’s time for a break & recuperation.

Leo Full Moon

It’s the Leo Full Moon today & it’s no surprise that this image of the mf Sun was beamed to us this past week!

This is the Sun! The life giving ball of fire we roam around every year. The source of our vitality & nutrients, indiscriminately shining upon us, through us, showing us the Leo way . Our Sun is a teeny-tiny 4.6 billion years old, with an approximate 10 billion year life span. NBD.

I do find @nasa & our current “science is top of the hierarchy of knowledge” era we’re living through laughable when they say this is the first time we’ve seen the Sun this close. Is it really? How did people know of binary stars in other galaxies before we had telescopes?

Also, if you’re wearing gold (the metal associated with Leo ) remember it was formed in a supernova ~ when a Sun is expiring in brilliance ~ & that you’re closer to the Sun than you may think.


Full Moons always bring up relationship dynamics so double check to make sure the one/ones you’re looking at see/s you & appreciate/s you for the shining Sun you are. Don’t be dazzled by fakes & those who want to dim your light! You’re worth being the centre of your own Solar System.

Scorpio depths are not the periphery

Anyone else feel like they finally understand what it’s like to be a Scorpio 24/7? This Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (leading us toward the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in January😳) is Scorpio Season on full blast! Whoooooweeee!

Scorpio Season Mercury retrograde 2019

The effects might not be visible on the periphery, but so much is stirring inside, below the surface.

It’s not ‘normal’ for us to be existing with constant grief, over stimulation & anxiety, & no one is spared right now. Mercury retrograde cycles are great opportunities for us to go off line, spending less time in the loop of scrolling & more time listening to what’s asking for our attention.

Mercury rules communication, & listening is just as valid as output. Listen to your body, chew your food, watch your breathing & trust those who love you that can see your blind spots. Boundaries are there for self care!

For the duration of this Mercury Rx cycle I’m offering astrological updates on how to release what is asking to be detoxed, Scorpio style.

What’s on the table?

Oct 31, 2019

The image of Mercury digging in its heels is as awkward as it feels. It’s time to stop. Reassess. The wings are grounded and there is no flight. Any lofty ideals crash to earth for a reality check and the more you push the harder it becomes.

Mercury is aligned with the Greek God Hermes; equipped with winged heels that enable swift movements and slippery deals. A psychopomp, Hermes is the guide who leads you down to the Underworld for death and renewal, be it removing the facade of mortality in facing your own death or that of someone you love, or by moving through difficulties that push you through to a new way of being.

The struggle is real

The planets are playing dirty in the sandbox but you don’t have to retaliate.

I know a lot of people are just hanging on by a thread right now. It’s an intense time. There’s a LOT coming up that needs to be cleared ~ be it ancestral or familial, personal or collective ~ pain & trauma are asking for our attention to heal & be release. Nothing & no one is spared.

Keep hanging on, it will pass. This is a particularly intense week. The planets are having a fight in the sandbox: someone in the past left glass in there which is cutting to the core of deeper issues & everyone’s got sand in their eyes which is making it that much worse. Mars, the initiator, has been sent to his room & is having a tantrum. Saturn is attempting to reinforce outdated rules so, everyone’s either crying or trying to keep the cool hand of control. It’s a hard combination that calls for gentleness & honest self reflection.

One of the best remedies for lifting you out of your own situation is giving someone else a lift. Reach out now because everyone’s going through this – no matter what hemisphere you live in or what rock you might wanna hide under. It’s time for some deep digging & solidarity.

🏳️‍🌈 For those celebrating Pride: be bold, be brave & please be safe. 🏳️‍🌈

For those with Capricorn rising you don’t have to live in a constant state of deprivation & proving that you can DO IT. We know you can, it’s yourself you’re learning to trust. Let that softness in that others are offering you.

Consciousness Shift

Gemini Season allows us time to explore and gather the missing pieces.

We are 100% heading toward a consciousness shift. The energy on the planet is increasing as the amount of people seeking, finding meaning in the mundane, and taping into nature’s wisdom has increased exponentially in the last few years.

CAN YOU FEEL IT?!

Gemini Season can render our energy scattered and directionless. The challenge amidst the capitalistic narrative is to remember that it’s OK; mutable signs are born to wander. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces all gather facts and intuitive data to pass on to the succeeding Cardinal Signs who initiate the changes.

Destination is not always the goal. Seeking out all the options is wise to inform us of what direction to take next. Looking both ways before crossing the road is smart, just as spinning your own compass once in a while can help orient you toward what is really important, and what’s not. 

Let this Gemini New Moon spin your compass. Allow all avenues of possibility to come into focus and keep your options open.

When seeking appears to be the goal it’s important to remember that there is no one to follow. There is only your own innate wisdom that can guide you and the best thing you can do for yourself and everyone else is learn to hear it, trust it and go with it.

Neptune v’s Capitalism

Resistance is futile, enjoy the ride.

 

This recent Mercury Rx cycle ended with the messenger snuggled up to mystical, nebulous Neptune. If retrograde times themselves aren’t enough to throw us off, sealing the deal with Neptune only intensified this.

 

The effects continuing this week have left many of us feeling cloudy & indecisive while lacking vitality & clear direction. Sound familiar? 🤔

 

It’s these moments, these potent astrological signatures, that are clear cosmic reminders that Capitalism is man-made & intrusive on our natural rhythms. The desire to achieve, to strive for survival is innate, but aligning our worth with ‘success’ & ‘progress’ is not. Why is it so hard to rest & DO nothing? How much did you push against this tide, only to feel more confused & dissatisfied? When we DO nothing, the only thing we can ‘do’ is just be. It’s in these precious moments that we can truly hear the messages.

 

 If we lived in a society where we were encouraged to make our life’s work something we’re good at or enjoy, the very fabric of society would be different. We would ‘work’ because we enjoy it, because it’s fulfilling, because we’re contributing. We would ‘work’ to our abilities, not a stock standard that exhausts us & pits us against each other. We wouldn’t have to stop & create time to check in, we’d be an expression of the rhythm of life itself. The indoctrination that we need to work to eat, to survive, to feel worthy are the sharp teeth of capitalism that eat away at our vitality & take us away from what we’re here to share.

 

We’re not out of this shadow phase until April 17, so these learnings are still being filtered through. With Saturn & Pluto as watchdogs over the south node traveling through Capricorn, we’re shedding more than the ideologies of capitalism. We have to address our own fears, our own beliefs & support of systems that uphold the things that inevitably hurt us.

 

Neptune allows us to view the ideal, to quest back to source. While it might not change overnight, each choice we make alters the entire vibration of the Universe. How’s THAT for personal responsibility?

 

The ties that bind

We all know stories of people staying in relationships “for the children,” and we can all likely relate to having things in relationships that represent “that thing” that keeps us attached, in therapy, processing, working for and even denying what is ACTUALLY going on.

Venus is now in the fierce, rising phase of her cycle and there’s a jittery, disruptive energy in the air as the veil thins.

 

Uranus is stirring up the sediment down below that one offered us security and safe footing. Maybe you thought you’d made it though Venus’s journey unscathed!? What we’ve let settle and what we’ve settled for is now being weighed on the irritation scale.

 

We have a choice this week about what we go forward with and what we acknowledge and let go of. What are the ties that bind you? Financial contracts, relationship agreements where we spend our money and time all reflect our values. As you’ve changed since then, how have these agreements shifted also?

 

If you’re thinking that someone will change if only they’d go to therapy, or understand this one concept, or change this certain behaviour, you’re likely flogging a dead horse and this irritation and uncertainty is highlighting the deception.

 

What has died needs to be re-named, re-defined and re-leased.

 

Endings come in many and varied packages and they all lead to the same outcome: new beginnings.
Rise and shine!
