~ Happy, Sappy Saturday! ~

Happy, Sappy Saturday! The Sun is in Libra and the Moon is in Scorpio. A good time to say what’s on your mind, but remember to use gentle words. Keep in mind that Mercury is Retrograde (October 13th – November 3rd), so watch your communication.

If you can break yourself away from the Melbourne International Film Festival, held at the Oaks Stadium 10 Theatre, 1800 W. Hibiscus Blvd., Melbourne, come on over for a reading. I’ll be at The Chacana Spiritual Center, 2299 Sarno Rd, Melbourne, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Readings are only $40 for half hour.

Please support the Oaks Theater. It is still open and showing some great shows, plus it has been a host for Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) for years. MIFF is celebrating 22 years of sharing the talents of filmmakers from all over the world with us. Last night’s drive-in show was a blast! It also featured a comedian and karaoke. Covid precautions are being taken.

Life is good. Celebrate it! Later! Ciao!

~ Visioning Class, Thursday, October 8th ~

Happy Monday! Just a short post today. Life is good and the weather is changeable. Take a deep breathe. We’re in for a great week!

The last Visioning class for the year will be held at the Chacana Spiritual Center, 2299 Sarno Road, Melbourne on Thursday, October 8th, from 7-9 pm. Visioning is about engaging creativity at its utmost, embracing transformation, and saying ‘yes’ to the best within us. It is not visualizing. It is about learning to listen and catch “the eternal broadcast” from the mind of the Divine for intuitive guidance in projects both personal and professional. Preregistration is preferred. You can register on the Chacana Spiritual Center website or Facebook page.

Later! Ciao!

~ Welcome to October! ~

Welcome to October! Magically, the weather has become cooler, albeit only for a few days, but it does make us realize that autumn has arrived.

Currently, we have six, yes six, planets in Cardinal signs. The Sun is in Libra, our beautiful Full Moon is in Aires, and all the rest are in Capricorn. This is terrific energy to get going, be creative, make It (whatever you’re It is) happen. If we don’t use this energy creatively, we will find ourselves releasing it in Cancer – our emotional body. It will be pretty unsightly if we do.

The Full Moon on Thursday is the first one in October. We have our second Full Moon (a Blue Moon) on October 31stin Taurus. October should be a very interesting month.

On September 30th, we entered the Celtic Tree month of Ivy. Connecting ourselves to Ivy is thought-provoking. Ivy does not produce fruit and remains weak when it straggles along the ground. As it climbs a building or a tree it grows increasingly stronger, flowers, and produces berries. It does not harm the tree or the building it bonds with on its journey. If we follow the advice of Ivy and grow into unknown places, higher atmospheres, harming none, who knows where our journey will take us?

On Saturday, October 3rd, I will be available for readings at the Chacana Spiritual Center from 10 am – 2 pm. Registration can be accomplished on line, or by phone (321-610-1698), so your appointment time will be reserved, although walk-ins are always welcomed.

Life is beautiful and a new vista is available to us every day if we would only open our eyes and look.

Later! Ciao!

~ Happy New Moon, Happy New Year (Rosh Hashanah), and Welcome Libra!

Hello! Here we all are again. The New Moon was in Virgo was yesterday, Rosh Hashanah, – the Jewish New Year begins tonight, (September 18th), and the Fall Equinox is on September 22rd. New beginnings are at hand this week.

We’re still in detail-orientated Virgo, so pay attention to the bits and pieces of your life, including your health, and your routines for maintaining good health. On Monday, Mercury squares Pluto, initiating deep conversations with secrets revealed, fact-checking, or profound insights. This can affect us in several different ways, either giving us a truth we find hard to hear or devotion to some type of communication project that takes time and effort to complete, but is worth the effort. Or receiving information that is in conflict with power or affects you on a deep level. This can be used for personal growth, so don’t deny it.

We move into Libra on September 22nd, and now we begin to seek balance, harmony, cooperation, and connection. It is an air sign, so it loves to communicate. In its best aspect Libra sees both sides of an issue or conflict.

Mercury squares Saturn on Wednesday, September 23rd, so heaviness is once again on the agenda. If you feel down or pessimistic or depressed on Wednesday, just try looking from a different perspective. Change your viewpoint! Look up instead of down. Then fast-moving Mercury opposes Mars (in Aires still).  This is not a great time for negotiations for we’re still reeling from the day before and although we may feel fiery, and hot under the collar, try to let the steam off through exercise or other physical activities.

This is a potentially crazy, out-of-control week, but now that you know you can change it and pretend to be a dead fish and go with the flow. Remember we are still in the Celtic Tree month of Vine, which is the Blackberry bramble bush. Often, in the spring, the dew may freeze on the blossoms of this vine. Those blossoms may die, but without the frost the berries won’t set.  The best advice for this week is to remember that what may appear to be threatening, more times than not, turns out to be a blessing.

Don’t forget to check out Page 11 on Horizonsmagazine.com for a short article I wrote. Also, I will be at the Chacana Center, 2299 Sarno Road, tomorrow, Saturday, September 19th, available for readings, from 10 – 2 pm. And you can always call me for a phone reading or to schedule an appointment for Reiki! (321) 458-7956.

Later! Ciao!

~ Happy Saturday, July 18th, 2022 ~

Happy Saturday! We’re gearing up for our second New Moon in Cancer on Monday, July 20th.  This weekend is a good time to be alone for awhile doing those comfort things that bring you happiness. Maybe baking or silently observing at a park would be the thing to do. With the Sun and the Moon in Cancer it is a time of deep reflection. There are four planets in water this weekend, so emotional deep reflection.

The Sun and the Moon in Cancer are also squaring Saturn in Capricorn. This means it is a great time for discipline. Learning to discipline our emotions. Saturn opposing the New Moon gives us the invitation to decide what is valuable and viable to us as we move forward. We are moved to take responsibility for some aspect of our life that we have been avoiding.

Wednesday, July 22nd, the Sun moves into its home sign of Leo. It’s ok to be dramatic now but watch out for too much drama as we move into Leo. This is also a great time for romance, new projects, self- expression of all sorts and taking a leadership role.

This Covid plague has been a trial at best for all of us, and it appears that a “New Normal” really won’t be established until 2022. Many of us have been questioning what is next for me? What is my next step? To help with some of this confusion I will be facilitating a Visioning Class at the Chacana Center, 2299 Sarno Road, Melbourne, on Thursday, July 23, from 7 – 9pm. Visioning is not visualization. It is the asking and receiving of answers from your Higher Self. Please register on line at Chacana Center or on their Facebook page.

Life has been thrown us a curve ball and we are all waiting to see how it will unfold. Patience and love are the only paths to follow right now. Love yourselves. Love your family, your friends, and your enemies. Remember we are all One.

Later! Ciao!

This is what I’ll be up on Saturday, July 11th.

30 Minute Intuitive Readings with Rev. Kathryn Flanagan
The Chacana Spiritual Center, 2299 Sarno Road, Melbourne

Tarot/Intuitive Readings $40 for 30 minutes (One reading per session)

Kathryn has been a professional Tarot/Intuitive reader for over 30 years. She also facilitates Intuitive Development, Tarot, and other related classes.

~ Happy Post-Eclipse Wednesday, July 8, 2020 ~

Happy Wednesday! Today is the first day of the Celtic Tree month of Holly. There has been some discussion about where Holly should be placed in the calendar. In the current position, after Oak, seems logical because the Green Knight defeats the Oak King at midsummer. The Green Knight’s weapon is a bough of Holly. Entering Holly, we have slipped into the waning half of the year.

Holly, along with Ash and Oak, were the groves most favored by the Druids for gatherings. In Northern Europe, Holly is associated with divination and charms were made from the spiky leaves, especially love charms. It is used for decoration in December for Yule. A quote from Pliny, in the First century CE states, “A holly tree planted in a town house or a country house keeps off uncanny influences.” I wonder if this current plague would qualify as an “uncanny influence”?

The Fourth of July weekend unfolded with a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn and a Full Moon in Cancer. We are still feeling the heightened energies from this, intensified by Mars in Aires squaring three planets in Capricorn. Please think, two or three times, before speaking, because with all that Cardinal energy squaring each other, communication could get very, very explosive.

The thing about Eclipses is we can expect the unexpected, they can clear out obstacles in our path, but we must wait for the dust to settle before taking action. The effect of an Eclipse lasts for six months so do not judge them as favorable or unfavorable until you have perspective on them.

Mercury is still Retrograde until July 12th. Keep on keeping on with reviewing, researching, revising, planning, decluttering – your mind and your home. It is a great time to ask yourself, what is causing my suffering? The answer will always be attachment. It is up to us to observe and detach from that attachement.

I will be available for readings, wearing face shield and armed with organic disinfectant, on Saturday, July 11th, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, at the Chacana Spiritual Center located at 2299 Sarno Road, Melbourne.  You can sign up on their website: www.chacanacenter.com or call 321-610-1698 to reserve your time slot.

As always, I am available for phone readings at 321-458-7956.

Missing all of you. Later! Ciao!

~ Friday, June 26th, 2020 ~

Happy Friday! This has been a pretty wild ride so far this year. In the last ten days we’ve had Mercury turn Retrograde in Cancer June 18th (Direct July 12th), Summer Solstice on June 20th, Solar Eclipse in Cancer on June 21st, Neptune turn Retrograde on June 22nd, and Venus moved Direct on June 24th. We also have a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn to look forward to on July 5th.

Most importantly Mars moves into Aires on June 27th. Why would Mars moving in Aires, be important? Well, Mars will be Square to three planets (Jupiter, Pluto & Saturn) in Capricorn. Two Cardinal signs squaring each other. For six months. This means that a lot of feisty, angry, frustrated energy concentrated on leadership for six months. The intensity will begin to be felt in July and continue into December. This is an amazing time to practice patience, instead of aggression, or striking out in fear.

                I read an affirmation from Louise Hay this morning, that I will be using as a mantra for the next six months. “All of the changes in life that lie before me are positive ones, and I am safe.” It made me feel more secure when I read it. Feel free to adopt it as your own.

                This Saturday, June 27th, tomorrow, I will be available for readings at the Chacana Spiritual Center, located at 2299 Sarno Rd, Melbourne, from 10 am – 2 pm. You can sign up in advance on Facebook under Events or just walk in. I’ll post a link today. I will wear a face shield and ask you to sanitize your hands before handling the cards.

                Classes I will be teaching at the Chacana Spiritual Center include “Auras” in June and two classes in August. The first one in August is a four-week class on the Major Arcana, and the second one is on Symbols. The August classes play off of each other and will be fun. Once again, you can sign up on the Chacana Spiritual Centers Facebook page or on their website.

                Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located a 780 W. New Haven Ave., Melbourne, is open for business, however, they are not yet prepared to be open for readings. I will let you know when readings once again become available there. Meanwhile, I am available for phone readings, 321-458-7956.

                Don’t forget we are still in the Celtic Tree month of Oak and the acorn represent the highest form of creativity – the creativity of the mind. What you think about, you bring about. “All of the changes in life that lie before me are positive ones, and I am safe.”

Namaste, Kathryn

~ In the wake of the Lunar Eclipse ~

Wow! Happy Friday! We all made it through the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius and Full Moon last Friday, June 5th. A lot of us are now experiencing and acting on the decisions this Eclipse made us aware of making for our own betterment. Scary, but exciting times! Welcome to the Age of Aquarius!

The Celtic Tree month of Oak began on Wednesday, June 10th. Like humans, this tree grows everywhere. It has been dedicated to many gods, over the centuries, Zeus, Jupiter, and Thor. These are all gods who are associated with lightning. Oak is a long-lived tree with an average life span of 250 years. Unlike Aspen or Birch, this tree is inflexible. It does not bend easily. Maybe this is the time to look at where, in our own lives, we are inflexible? Acorns are the fruit and seed of the Oak. They fed many migratory peoples in prehistoric times. For me, acorns are the seeds we plant within our minds from which ideas grown. From a tiny acorn a mighty oak will grow.

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow the Sun is in Gemini and the Moon is in Pisces. This makes two planets in Gemini and three in Pisces, so if we are feeling a little spacey, confused, or flighty, we’re just picking up all this Airy-Water energy. This is an excellent time to be creative in the kitchen, the garden, at a worktable, or on a computer. This combination can also affect our emotions, so if moody presents itself, just go with it. Pick up a good book and leave the bad feelings to dissipate.

As everyone is aware, Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, Melbourne, is now open again for retail shopping. A mask is required and gloves are available at the door. We have not opened for reading as of this writing.

I will be at the Chacana Spiritual Center, 2299 Sarno Road, Melbourne, tomorrow and on June 27th, available for readings. On Thursday, July 23rd, I will be teaching an Introductory Intuition class on Auras, from 7 – 9 pm. August 6th, 13th,20th, & 27th I will be teaching Tarot –The Major Arcana, and on August 10th, 17th, 24th, & 31st Symbology – How to use Symbols in Readings. Check their Facebook page or www.chacanacenter.com to register and see the other classes offered.

Of course, as soon as Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, is fully opened, I will be back there, available for readings.

Later! Ciao!
