How do we sift through thoughts and feelings to decipher our highest personal guidance? First, congratulate yourself on desiring to reach for your personal best.

 

Your gift of life came with many gifts. One of them is intuition, and I like to call this our direct connection with what I call God Creator; the all-inclusive energy that is everywhere; intelligent, loving, miraculous, healthy, abundant, joyful, and wants us to grow and evolve in bliss. PS:  We are made of this, as there is nothing else.

 

So we are co-Creative and more miraculous than we know. Our Father/Mother God’s traits are our heritage, birth right and our highest truth of being. The free-will choices we make either keep us in the light of positive creation, or we step outside the light into devilish thinking and creations based on doubt, fear, hate, greed, lust, jealousy, etc.

 

Those, also being from the God Creator light source energy, can ultimately lead us back to the light creations, meaning that we learn and grow from challenges, at our own pace. Time is eternal so these attitudes may stem from a past life experience surfacing, or the past experiences of this life, living up to the natural law of attraction; you get what you give, you get what you believe. As co-Creator, our free-will gift also allows us to turn back to the light and follow bliss. As eternal beings, we truly have all the time in the world.

 

It’s from here we learn not to judge. We are made of the same light energy, taking different journeys and time, to return to the light. We learn from it all, so it all is, and they all are, our gift. To gain the blessings of listening consciously and discerning what is our intuitive higher guidance, I will offer some ways to practice. But first let’s tune in to your body, and your entire self.

 

Take a bit of time that you will allow yourself to just be with yourself; not doing anything else at the time. Notice how your body feels head to toe. Is there pain or discomfort? Make yourself as comfortable as possible. Sometimes we can relieve pain just by tuning in and breathing deeply intending for the breath of fresh air to invigorate and restore the area.

 

Maybe just stand, stretch, or shake the area to redistribute and re-enliven the energy there. Maybe a positive affirmation will lighten the load. Remember you are miraculous. If you don’t embrace that truth, you only limit your possibilities and potential from being divine.

 

Ask yourself is there anything stuck in my body or heart that it wants to reveal as bothering me? Wait patiently and listen. Maybe it will bring up a thought such as being afraid to attend an upcoming holiday gathering because you don’t feel as worthy as the others, expect to be diminished as ‘usual,’ or have to put up with a challenging situation. When a negative thought or feeling comes up it is a good practice not to stuff it, but notice the E-motion… as Energy in motion.

 

You can assist it in moving through and out of you by reminding yourself of truth. We are all created equal  from God’s source energy, equal in God’s heart, and have the right to our self-esteem, just for being alive. We all have ‘stuff’ and maybe it doesn’t appear outwardly in others. When we can love others unconditionally, without judgment, in this truth of sharing vulnerability as human, we can send love in advance of everywhere we go, expecting love and beauty to surround us everywhere.

 

Now for some practice in intuition to help in making decisions of any kind:

 

Here’s a game: Decide what meal is your favorite. Maybe it’s manicotti the way Aunt Mary Ann makes it, with her special garlic bread and amazing salad too. Then decide what food is your least favorite.  Is it liver, tongue; you name it?  Then in your inner talk say, tonight we are having (describe the favorite meal). Notice any subtle energy shift? Perhaps it stayed the same because you weren’t ruffled. That’s a positive sign. Or perhaps your energy felt like it expanded like light energy titillated.

 

Then, instead, in your inner talk say, tonight we are having (say the food/s that disgust you). Notice if some energy slightly seemed to tighten, or in any way brought an energy surge that could be interpreted as negative; maybe feel flush or hair stand up and tingle?

 

You can ask yourself from innocent to more important questions like, should I go to Flagstaff today. Should I go to Prescott instead? Should I buy that necklace? Should I invite Jane to meet me for lunch? Am I ready to get closer with Mike (or Michelle) at this time? Basically, by becoming familiar with your body’s reactions, you will get your answers for that time. If you need more exploration, you can do the practice asking if your body or mind want to reveal deeper issues within yourself.

 

We can practice affirmations so as to build truth back into our belief systems. We were taught many things by others and they live within us as truth, but when was the last time you examined those people’s theories you believe are fact?

 

I like to remember these thoughts when making decisions:

 

Have I checked inside for my truth in deciding what to do? (It can happen in seconds)

 

Am I remembering that I have faith all things are in divine order with the highest reasons?

 

Am I treating myself with self worth?

 

Am I treating others as I would like to be treated?

 

Is a decision based in integrity and fairness; win-win for all.

When Mercury goes retrograde, seemingly doing the backstroke in the sky versus the breaststroke gliding forward, we are tested.

 
It occurs about three times a year. Think of swimming from one end of the pool to the other. We’ll call that the shadow of the retrograde. When we swim back to where we started, That is the retrograde; swimming back over the area we swam up before, (the shadow), reviewing it again.  When it’s done swimming back to where we started, the retrograde is complete. Now visualize that movement in the sky, where it really happens.

 

Once the retro is done, things have been reviewed and revealed in our lives, and we have new information; what we need to go forward, in the know, with insights we didn’t have before. So, counting the shadow space, it’s more than a month each time we experience a Mercury retrograde. 

 

It’s happening now, and it will stop retrograding on November 10th, beginning to swim in forward motion again. Give it a couple of days to start to pick up speed again, and things will seem normal again.

 

Wherever Mercury is in your chart, is where it will be diving for gems of knowledge. If it’s your second house, for instance, you’ll be taking a dive into deeper waters about your value, your income, how much you have in the bank, your self-worth, your self esteem, your body...

 

Did I say this happens for three months every year? You heard right. We are without the assistance of forward-moving Mercury that often, but there are gifts in its path for us, not just challenges testing us to spiritually evolve.

 

Mercury rules all communication and everything with moving parts. That includes my blender that we discovered leaks. That includes my waiting for an important timely email while in a car going from Sedona to Cottonwood, when I checked the IPhone to see if it arrived and a message popped up indicating something like, Not Able to Receive Messages.

 

The same day there was a mix-up with someone’s credit card, which would make the difference in her and I receiving our highest commission in a business we have in common. Attempting to fix that took many emails and phone calls including the next day

 

There were all sort of communication misconnects over several days about a class I was booked to teach; ultimately finding the location closed. I let it all roll of my back, visited with a friend, then went back to my office and welcomed a new client. It’s all good.

 

Some of the perks of Mercury retrograde is that we go over things from the past, they are revisited and fixed; an issue from years ago became resolved successfully. We find things that were lost or figure out things we couldn’t before. We see or communicate with those we haven’t been in touch with for some time. Since not a lot of business may be ultra busy, we can reorganize and chill out too before the next tide rolls in. It’s a time for inner, spiritual tweaking.

 

I revisited my food habits again, in an attempt to elevate them and lower excess weight. I hired a wonderful nutritionally-oriented chef/teacher who came to my home for six hours. She had created recipes just for my tastes from salad dressings and marinades, to milkshakes, stews, soups, cookies and candy; had shopped, and showed up with boxes and boxes of nutrient-rich food and ingredients, showing me how to prepare them!.

 

They fill me up immediately, are more delicious than those with empty calories I was used to, my fridge and freezer are filled and I have been feasting. She indicated my body will easily reshape to my natural size and the scale has been proving it.

 

Because Mercury is still retrograding I am waiting until after the 10th when it turns around and goes forward again, to purchase my food processor, vita mixer and such, because I don’t want to find they will be malfunctioning or parts missing. I learned my lesson about purchasing anything with moving parts during previous Merc Retros when I purchased a new handheld phone set and ultimately had to exchange it after waiting in line for an hour.

 

 Another time I took my car for a repair and the mechanic, by accident, tore the rubber molding around my car door and left a tool under the hood.

 

Do you have Mercury retrograde stories you want to share? Time is running out. We only have a few days left to revisit, rethink, reorganize and relax by letting things roll off our shoulders. This dream we are dreaming of life is but opportunity after opportunity enabling us to hone our spirit to the frequency of faith, intuition, unconditional love and joy. These little retrogrades are quizzes to see how we’re doing.

 

I can look back at these wildly testing days of retrograde and know that as I went through each day and moment I was aware of my choices and always chose faith in what I call God, to work everything out fairly and in divine time. Sometimes I played soothing music to assist in keeping my heartbeat calm. I kept my integrity, honesty and respect toward all others, no matter how the illusion of situations and time seemed.

 

How have you been handling your Mercury retrograde? Remember what is real in your dream of life is that you are loved, cared for and all is well. Everything else would be just stepping into the shadows and out of the eternal shaft of the light of good. Come from your heart, relax your heart, and breathe as you swim against the current. In fact, why not let it carry you, into new waters.

 

You can keep abreast of each upcoming retrograde on the Astrology page of my website, which is free. I’ll share with you that, except for the Sun and Moon, EVERY planet retrogrades. In fact the shadow of Venus’ retrograde begins later this month. She only retrogrades every one-and-a-half to two years. Venus is all things love and money, so buy your holiday gifts before, and secure your loving relationships. They all require effort, and sometimes a little retro comes along to keep us from ignoring that fact.

 

Happy retrospectives!

OK, Boo. Many of you have already celebrated at Halloween parties, and good for you, making merriment. You may have had too much to drink or eat, but you came through by the grace of a higher power which created your miraculous body, allowing your skeleton to have a live adventure. And consider the alternative… You could be a real ghost at any moment, without a body.

That said, merriment doesn’t always mean overindulge. It can certainly mean appreciating and celebrating every moment you are alive, in peaceful, blissful, joy. So if life throws a lemon, catch it and make your environment smell fresher. If we get caught in repeatedly only perceiving lemons, we may become sour.

Whom did you go ‘as,’ or whom are you planning to be? I was always a princess when young, and it’s still what I want to be. Put the crown on my head, give me my magic wand and dress me in a pink tulle netting tutu. Well, I’m more mature now, so make it full length.

Let’s take this to a deeper level. If you had one life to live and you could begin it now, would you ‘be’ who you are now? Would you ‘do’ what you do now? Do you behave as you wish to be known? Do you add honey to make sweet lemonade?

Do you dress to present yourself in life as if your greatest opportunity could arrive at any moment, or costume yourself as stained, tattered and wrinkled? Do you make those phone calls or send those emails to carve a pathway toward who you know you really are?

You DO have one life to live; in fact you have one moment to live. This moment. How many people do you know that live for some day, putting off today until some unknown date in some unknown future? Are you acknowledging blessings, expecting more as your birthright? How many people live as if they are already a ghost in the shadows?

Are you a goblin; an evil or mischievous creature…caught in patterns of personal despair therefore uncaring of others’ feelings? Just like lift, which overrides gravity, we are all meant to lift and evolve higher; to become the angel you are. Will you be an angel this year?

Perhaps at this time, cloaked in Scorpio traits, we will look more deeply into our psyches and truly see beyond the veil, that the emotional burdens causing hurt have been needlessly carried forward. Once we actually shine a light and magnifying glass on what has been buried, it’s easy to see that forgiveness and hope are in order for the sole/soul reason to lift the heavy feeling off of ourselves. Those hurts are old, dead, outdated saved documents that we can delete and send to trash.

I say cloaked because not only is the Sun is in Scorpio, as it is every Halloween, but Saturn too, for the first time in 29 years, ensuring by this time next year, we will have made many journeys to the soul for personal transformation. Also, Mercury is now retrograding in Scorpio, asking us to re-assess and re-evaluate how we use or give away our personal power; to be reborn, doing our own psychic/psyche surgery, and once we heal ourselves, we can heal the world.

Are you putting off till the next life, to be reborn, clean up and take out the garbage? How about donning a costume of a baby, this Hallowed Evening, when the veil between the physical and non-physical worlds is the thinnest. Hear your angels, guides and ancestors whisper nonjudgmental empowerment into your heart. A newborn is fresh, unprejudiced, carries no guilt, hate or fear; is simply loving and joyful.

The Bible says, ‘it is done unto you as you believe.’ Change your perceptions and watch the outer forms of your existence shift and dance into new and better shapes. It’s that easy. ‘In the beginning was the word, and the word was God and the word was good.’ Do you actually listen to the ‘creative’ words that you utter?

If you have devilish perceptions, you may have simply stepped out of the light of God. Are you going as a devil this year? Greedy, led by ego (edging God out).

Going as you are? That’s the best face to wear, no masks, because no matter what thoughts move into our inner ears, they really aren’t yours…just like TV and radio broadcast waves are always in the air, too, negative thoughts will always be in the air but pretend you’re a great baseball outfielder and only catch the good throws.

You are made in the image and likeness of God, so you are perfect just the way you are. You are enough. We are all made of the same stuff. We all will be tweaking ourselves, as the years progress, to bring more genuine peace and joy to our own hearts, affecting the hearts around us like a spider’s web.

Life is full of tricks and illusions, to make us think it’s not a treat. Don’t fall for that. Go as the wise magician you are! Boo you? No, praise you!

I am giving a class Monday, Nov. 4 at 6:00 pm about the Secrets of Your Astrology and What Card you Are in the ‘regular’ deck of 52 cards, plus much more…about You. You will receive a phenomenal handout you will use for a lifetime. $15. Email or phone to confirm a seat and learn the location.

I believe timing is everything. It may not always look logical, but is divinely guided. Since moving to Sedona years ago, in the first year I scheduled classes to be held in my office. There was plenty of comfortable seating, yet only visitors to Sedona learned about the classes so attendance was minimal. I stopped.

 

Recently there has been a louder and louder call that the time is now. Mercury is retrograde and that’s when we redo things; repeat and revisit them. Revise them. This time classes are to be for local residents. Readers of my columns worldwide can always benefit from phone or Skype personal consultation and potentially I will have classes on DVDs to purchase.

 

Instead of a short class for less than two hours, all that vacationing allows, we can meet regularly for an hour and a half, or two, over several weeks, to learn subjects in depth, or have an empowering support group or master mind manifestation group.

 

Teaching and counseling is my passion and gift, which I relished for over 30 years. I have missed the effervescence of my soul overflowing joyfully when sharing what I gained over decades of study, interacting with many wonderful people at once. I love imparting the ahas, answering questions, enlightening minds in awe with insights that are out of the box and tremendously useful and inspiring; lifting consciousness, lives and strengthening self esteem.

 

I always teach and counsel positively; there is nothing scary and dark, so the Readers I have trained in other parts of the country are also positive and empowering.  Any classes or groups, no matter what the topics, will be in the light, the true way of the esoteric.

 

If you would like to learn beginning Astrology, or learn Tarot with basic astrology and numerology as part of Tarot…If you would like to be part of a Women’s empowerment group or a group that meets to discuss living spiritually, mystically, peacefully, blissfully, or use the Law of Attraction intensified by the power of a group to increase the force behind creating your desired manifestations, let me know.

 

I am also open to leading an enlightened, gentle and easy weight shedding support group. I’m ready to begin classes that will be weekly in my office and/or at my home, at reasonable, affordable cost.

 

When you email or phone, please Include days and times that you are available so that I can tailor them to you. We’ll discuss what your personal desires for a class might look like that will target your needs.

 

Is it time to spread your wings and soar? When the student is ready, the teacher appears. If you’d like to get to know me, feel a sense of my personal energy, come to an introductory class before making a decision, confirm your seat for my Monday, November 4th class at 6:00, and I will give you the location. You will learn a lot about yourself and others in your life, and leave with a valuable handout you will be excited to share with others.

I gave a handout, of a little-known, long-underground secret system, to everyone who attended my lecture last week at the Sedona Psychic Fair. I’ve even edited it since, and you may want to have it for yourself! You’ll probably share it with everyone you know! It’s something you’ve likely not known about, and will find utterly fascinating; a must have. Read to the end for two free Gifts.

What is this mysterious system I’m talking about? Well, let me start by saying it’s not astrology, though it’s based in astrology. Heck you all likely know your Sun sign, and most of you know what your general sun sign zodiac characteristics are; i.e. Geminis are usually fun, and love communication in all forms. Well, this is a different system, which reveals what card in the regular 52-card deck of cards You are, then describes you perfectly. But there’s more! It reveals your destiny and is proven 100% accurate!

Are you the Five of Spades who makes many changes in work and locations, and inspires others? Six of clubs who finds truth and gives the world a mental gift? Would you like to know if you’re the Ace or the King or Queen?  If you know your card, and learn your potentials, you can gain the world.

I studied this ancient system, tested that it truly was 100% accurate, and here is what it said for the very day that I left home, some family and friends, to trek across country for Sedona in order to give my spiritual services to the masses who come here seeking:

                “This is a beneficial influence for giving selflessly of yourself in your work or community/spiritual service. A strong spiritual influence is now present in your life which could inspire you to act with higher integrity or encourage you to make some personal sacrifices. You may have decided to relinquish some part of your personal freedom or individuality, or give up some acquaintances, all in the name of truth and the good of others.”  …I couldn’t have said it better.

Once we know what card you are, we can track the past and confirm that what it describes is exactly what occurred, to give you confidence in the future that it shows. How can that be? I don’t know the answer to that just like I can’t explain how the planetary motions’ speed and revolutions were put in place so that their geometrical interactions tell a story which truly occurs; ‘As above, so below.’

I just do the interpreting from having studied these systems. In fact, if you are interested in astrology and wish to know how each day is made to be used, you can go to my website and click Astrology. Each day has several types of traits it offers us all, collectively, and when we use our days from being in the know, we can flow beautifully with the energies that are meant to be.

So, our free will comes in when we make choices within what the playing field will be, which has been determined; likely from our agreement with Spirit, as to what we wish to do and learn in our life.

Our lives change every 52 days (52 cards) on the same days every year. I can tell you what your days are and in what ways they change. We can look at each year for you. In fact ages 13, 26, (29) 39, 44, 45, 52, 65, 78, 90 are very important years.

Everyone you know is a card in the deck too, and the handout I am offering you will describe not only your characteristics, strengths, power, and give guidance to you, but everyone else you know, too. You’ll easily be able to determine your and their card.

I was so impressed by this 100%-accurate system which predicts destiny, that I invested in the software so I could use it rapidly in every Reading. In any length Reading I’ll also look at your astrology, even without exact time and location of birth, and use the sacred Tarot; all always with positivity for clarity and healing, never scary.

Divine Loving Spirit may show you some challenge that is present; you already know about, which another might ‘read’ as your future. I teach Readers that we can be guided to often avoid challenges, go around it and even change things, by receiving higher wisdom and insights, or to understand how it can be a gift to evolve and grow. Any and all questions are always replied to accurately, lovingly and without judgment.

With these old, taken-for-granted playing cards we’ve played Gin Rummy, Blackjack and even Go Fish with, I can see your most favorable days, as well as see the true connection between you and anyone you care about. We can see insight about love, career; you name it. I can also look at your seven year and thirteen year influences, etc., etc.

This is all about life, so no, I don’t predict death…no worries…not that death should be perceived as a worry…We can discuss that another time.

If you would like my Gift, to send you this handout, just email me with your request. If you don’t want to be on my email list, just indicate. I send emails about three times per year, giving insights about what is coming up and how to use it to your benefit. Your email is confidential.

So, what Card do You Think you are… from Ace to Ten, Jack, Queen or King, in hearts, clubs, diamonds or spades. Then email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to request your Gift, and you’ll find out how well your intuition is working J

The Gift-giving season has begun: Here’s a second Gift. Anyone who emails their request and after reading your handout, guesses what card I am, by emailing again, can receive $15.00 off any length Reading; either in person or by phone. Turn on your intuition and see what is revealed – about yourself!

There’s the relationship you have with yourself, and the varying ones you have with different people in your life. Every year when the Sun is in the Libra segment of the sky, as it has been since September 22, lasting for nearly 30 days, the spotlight of the sunlight shines on characteristics of relationships.

It’s the New Moon in Libra that occurs at one moment within Libra’s near 30 days of length, that actually opens the floodgates for activity to really begin. That will occur this Friday, Oct. 4, around dinnertime pacific time. It won’t be like any other year’s New Moon in Libra!

Relationships…Many of us learn much more about ourselves by being actively engaged with one or more people we spend time with. It’s easier when it’s with a good family member or old friend that knows you well and shares a history of soul-searching together. Not as calm when getting to know a new person that may play a new role in our lives.

It could be your new classmates, team mates or work mates. It could be a potential date mate. First impressions rate high but is that really you or them? A good bit of meeting one another may reveal a great deal, but pages must be turned to read the finer print, the bigger story.

This New Moon in Libra has us in a box. I say that because the Sun has already begun squaring 2 planets, and opposite another. We’ve started feeling it (government shut down?) and the configuration will be more exact on the New Moon Friday, effecting October. If you could connect the dotted lines of them in ‘heaven,’ it will look just like a square box. What does that mean to your relationships, you wonder? 

Well if you are in a closed box, you may need to work your way out of it; to open it and breathe easier. The tools you have for the situation may make it a breeze or a fight. There will be many opportunities that will ask you to rise to them. Will you shine or get in your own way?

Let’s start with determining what the highest and best relationship might be…look like…sound like…act like. Libra rules fairness and harmony. How about two people seeing each other as equal, sharing time and space in order to allow one another to grow and evolve within themselves; understanding we make mistakes along the way, so being kind and forgiving, as well as sharing each other’s good traits and empowering one another, as the pattern is about examining ourselves throughout our days and lives.

No longer is the tradition that man makes the decisions, must be stronger, older, bringing in more income. No longer does the woman’s role require staying home, being the housekeeper and cook, raising children, being virginal or submissive. The male doesn’t need to act rough and macho, not listening; nor does the female need to appear less intelligent and needy.

The square box formation at the New Moon will bring up where we are not balanced in caring equally for yourself and your ‘others.’ The signs involved, besides Libra, are Aries, Cancer and Capricorn; all cardinal signs which are motivated as action starters. This won’t be uneventful. Much will be happening.

You and I will be responding to lots of activity so let’s be certain we know how to cooperate, collaborate, negotiate, agree to disagree, find our own balance for rest and renewal when possible, not get overly emotional without considering how to be practical, grounded, thinking out our replies, and look to ourselves to take responsibility for what we may be drawing to ourselves. It’s time to create a new you and a new us.

The most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves. Can you look past imperfections and see how they are gifts? Can you be patient and kind to yourself rather than constantly counting the ways you believe you mess up? Can you keep from rattling yourself, buying in to what seems wrong and bad, and stay positive until you see the final outcome wasn’t as bad as threatened?

Libra also rules beauty and elegance. Can you take one step upward in how you groom and adorn yourself, presenting your best appearance to those gazing at you, rather than wait for ‘maybe some day?’ Has your comfort zone been having clean underwear in case hospital workers will be exposing you? I jest, but is that it? I promise if you step up how you present yourself, you will feel amazing and your behavior will also naturally draw out your most gracious ways. You are worth it.

Dress for yourself, as well as a gift to your loved ones. Come home ready to refresh and recharge, giving your best self to the relationship rather than leave it all behind with customers.  Be as lovely to your close ones as to the customers. Don’t be afraid to discuss a challenge to the degree of pointing out, gently, how you or your significant others might want to look at what we did or how we are, that may simply be the mirror inside you, of what occurred or occurs. Really, do you want a ‘yes’ person as your loving companion? It’s nice to have someone on your side, yet it can also merge with looking deeper in order to evolve and grow.

Yes, some relationships are about physical intimacy, and others just friends. Then there are relationships that are true blue and lovingly live in reality. Might the lover go away if the talk gets spiritually and soulfully vulnerable? Is a person really a friend if they aren’t able or willing to meet you in deep truth? Your truth will set you free, and I hope that you have, or rearrange your world to have the highest and most rewarding togetherness. 

It would be enriching to begin an acquainted relationship with you when I give discounted positive Readings at the Psychic Fair this Sunday, two days after the New Moon begins growing its fruits, as well as giving a free class at 4:00. I’ll let you research where that might be, as I’ll keep a Libran standard of fairness and not promote one Sedona resort over another by mentioning it’s name here.
