Many of us know our astrological Sun signs. But have you ever wondered what makes one, say for example Leo, so completely different from another Leo that you think they’re totally opposite Sun signs? Not all Leos are created alike, for good reason. Each of us is a composite of every planet in the galaxy. From the Sun all the way out to Pluto, each planet plays a role in our lives. MERCURY IS THE MESSENGER. This little planet close to the Sun rules our mind, our thoughts, communication, how we think and speak. Where this little planet was located at the time of your birth can give you powerful insight into how we each absorb, process and shares information…
Over the past couple of years, there has been an increased exploration of empathy and highly sensitive people in our mainstream pseudo-science and social psychology realms. With these categories and terms coming out, I feel it is important to talk a little more about the difference between being empathic, psychic, and highly sensitive, and more so what we should do with the information and sensations that we are now becoming privy to.
Magic (magick) has been around at least as long as written history and possibly longer. There was always that one guy (or gal) who had the power of mysticism. Helping the pharaohs, birthing babies and healing the sick. Though a shadow has been cast on it in the past, women are now reclaiming their intuition, their power of knowingness. They are looking to get back in touch with their wild side, that moved with the phases of the moon and created, or sought out those who created their own magic. Are you ready to start creating yours?
Feeling the Heat? Take a Soul Vacation. The intensity is on as August opens, whether by actual temperature or from life itself. For many, it feels like we’re living inside of a pressure cooker. Wow. Five out of ten planets are retrograde motion on August 1st, soon joined by Uranus turning retrograde at the end of the first week while we also prepare for the third and final eclipse of the summer on August 11.
Looking after yourself isn’t selfish, it’s sensible and necessary. Taking time out for yourself, without feeling guilty needs to be an important part of your life. If you are feeling stressed to the max, snappy at home, grumpy at work, feeling tearful, short-tempered, keep injuring yourself, all of these are all telltale signs that your life is out of balance and that you need to start doing some Self Care - STAT!
Your astrological chart is your blueprint for this lifetime: Why You are YOU. Three primary functions make up each chart. These are the planets, signs, and houses. Most people are familiar with their Sun sign; some might even know what planet rules their sign. But unless someone has had their astrology chart read, they usually don’t know the house location of their Sun or any of their other planets. While the houses are often a less understood function of astrology, they are integral to knowing who you are; and so, they are of equal importance to signs and planets.
According to Indian, Tibetan, and Chinese philosophy – and recently, new modern science – we have uncovered an incredibly lively universe that is made up of energy. Reiki is one of many methods that can be used to activate, harmonize, and reconnect the Self with universal energy. It works with the Hindu energy centers, major and minor chakras, the Chinese (TCM) meridian lines, and acupuncture points within the body. Reiki is universal energy that is made available to anyone who is open to its healing vibrations of love and peace.
