If you’re an Aries, then you are going to be strongly influenced by the planet Mars. Mars urges us onwards by the desire to accomplish, progress and build upon all our projects and goals. The person with a strong Mars influence in their chart will be very determined to reach their goals through hard work, and they will not stop until they have reached their goals, as they are often very, very ambitious. This is one of the characteristic strengths in Aries people - they will often display tremendous self-confidence and a ‘never-say-die’ attitude. If you’re an Aries, perhaps just be cautious not to be so determined that you forget what your ultimate goal is.
The focus of this month’s magazine is Rebirth, and as spring continues to progress and life is blossoming, we can help our Rebirth through our chakra’s by sending them rays of different light, and planting a seed that the Chakras will help bring to manifestation, completing our Rebirth. The seed can be anything that you want manifested in your life, such as a new job, a new house, a new romance, or to be more loving or have more joy in your life, and each Chakra helps to bring that seed to fruition.
Find some time to relax and read this meditation. You can close your eyes and visualize the steps. You may go quickly through the meditation, or take your time and savour the journey. Before you start, make sure you have decided what the intention of the seed that you are planting is.
I have been living on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i for about 10 months now and it feels like it's time to begin immersing myself in its rich spiritual culture and philosophy. I thought I would start off by pulling a card from my Hawaiian Mana cards which were given to me "by chance":
"It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me. And I'm feeling good!" – Nina Simone 'I'm feeling good'
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...
