The planet Neptune is the ruler of the sign of Pisces. The symbol for Neptune is Poseidon’s three-pronged spear. This spear is considered to be the cross of matter breaking through the crescent of one’s personality. Hence, setting it free to manifest itself at a higher level than one’s own personal ego.
t’s that time of year again. After the winter season, when everything has slowed down, we are coming out of hibernation. Spring cleaning is a wisdom found in many traditions, from Feng Shui to old wives’ tales. And there is a good reason for it too. It does help to clear the energy within you and around you.
One of the most challenging situations we encounter in life is how to handle the feelings involved when it's time to let go of something or someone who has been important to us. This is the message of the Eight of Cups. If you're physically with your reader, or doing a tarot reading for yourself, this is one of those cards which can spark, at the very least, deep feelings of sadness. The imagery used in most decks is evocative, to say the least!

No matter where we’re at in our love lives, some quiet time nourishing our inner selves will support the relationships most important to us. Try this simple meditation...
Give yourself five or ten minutes to centre yourself. Sit quietly and focus on your breath to become calm and relaxed. In that relaxation, imagine an inner light coming from your solar plexus (just above your belly). This is your own inner self shining out into the world. Take a moment to get a feeling of your inner energy flowing into the world. What is the feeling of this energy? Is there a particular colour, sound, movement or even picture you associate with this energy? Rest in the inner light for a few more minutes. Then let your awareness expand beyond your own body to feel all the different sensations and feelings around you. Recognize that all these feelings, sensations, perceptions represent different paths that you can choose to focus your awareness on. Contained within every second is a multitude of various options for you to choose to take. Wait until you feel a pull in a certain direction, a tendency for your awareness to focus on one particular feeling or sound and sit with that feeling for a few moments. Allow any thoughts, images or associations to come through your mind - don’t edit or try to interpret what you feel - simply let the images or feelings move through your mind. When you feel ready, bring your awareness back into your body and slowly come back into your normal waking mind.
Many of our clients have their own tarot cards, and like to seek understandings for themselves - not surprising given that our clients are people who know and trust their intuition deeply! In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Manisha Godbole, one of our most insightful psychic readers, has shared some of her own interpretations of the tarot cards which are most likely to appear in readings about relationships. Whilst it’s always important to trust more than anything else, your own instincts about your life, and the intuitions you have about your own cards, here are some insights to help you along the way...
2014 is shaping up to be an interesting year astrologically. Eclipses can bring about sudden changes, in business, love and friendships. Traditionally, you don’t want to travel, or start new projects during eclipses if you can help it, because there can be disruptive energy present during an eclipse. Eclipses are illuminators, clearing up places inside ourselves that have been hidden, bringing them to the light, shifting our energy and resetting our energy. Solar eclipses occur at the new moons, so they mark new beginnings, and have a period of effect for six months from the eclipse.
The beginning of a new year is always a great time to start new and exciting dimensions on our personal road in life. The ‘New Year’s Resolution’ offers us hope for change and to better ourselves as individuals. Often throughout our lives, we go through transitional stages, some good and some not so good. The good times are welcoming and it keeps us enthusiastic and full of our zest for life. But as cliche'd as it sounds, life is sometimes no walk in the park, and unfortunate things happen to us that can seem to set us back sometimes days, months and even years at a time.
As we enter a New Year, it’s always positive - even exciting - to look to the cards to see what threads and cycles may be unfolding for us. With that in mind, I’ve done a ‘Year’s Spread’ for us - one card as an overall guide for the trends of the year, and then a card for each month.
I thought it would fun to do something different this month and pull 3 cards, a kind of “Holy Trinity” spread.
This can be a rather stressful time of year for many people in deciding what to do over the holidays, who to spend time with. Some people may want to get away or do something different but can’t. There may be familial tension, competing interests or a conflict over activities. The group is very much highlighted and could be the source of much stress or enjoyment depending on how you look and deal with it.
