Here we are entering Taurus, a study, steady sign that appreciates the nicer things of life, like fine wine, clothes made of soft fabric, and an evening spent in front of a fireplace. Of course, being bulls they are often quite stubborn and obstinate, but these traits are also what makes this sign so very loyal. As an Earth sign, they are also feeling the effects of Saturn being in Capricorn, only to a lesser degree.
Sunday, appropriately – in the first Earth sign of the year – is Earth Day. A day to honor our Mother Earth -Gaia. Just as you should treat your Mom like every day was Mother’s Day, we need to remember to treat the Earth as if every day was Earth Day.
Today I be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., Melbourne, hanging out with my favorite PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, Alyssa and Jon-Paul. I’ll be available for readings, only $30 for 30 minutes, from noon until closing. In honor of Earth Day we have many displays honoring Gaia. Do stop in and check them out.
I won’t be at the PURPLE store this Sunday as I will be interviewing authors for the Brevard Authors Society at the Authors for Authors conference at the Melbourne Hilton Rialto. Check out both the Brevard Authors Society and the Authors for Authors conference on Facebook. And look for me on You Tube! Later! Ciao!
Wow! What a day today is unfolding to be! Mercury goes direct at 5:21 am. Don’t expect instant results but you will definitely feel relief beginning today and increasing within the next day or two. There is also a New Moon today in the sign of Aires.
And it is the first day of the Celtic Tree Month of Willow. Although the weeping willow is a powerfully magical tree, that grew first in China before spreading to the Near East by Biblical times, it is not the willow referred to in their calendar. No, the Druids were referring to the pussy willow, which they called one of the “seven noble trees of the land”.
The bark of the willow contains Salicylic Acid therefore, can be ground up and used as aspirin. Infusions from the bark have been used to treat rheumatism and fevers. Its sap is used to cure acne and boiling its sap and bark together to rub on your scalp is said to cure your dandruff.
Broomsticks and wands made from the willow tree are especially potent. One of the reasons may be because it is considered to an eternal tree as just leaving a broken branch on damp ground will produce a new tree. Willow is connected with Love, creativity, New Moon magic, and more, so get ready for a creative, beautiful, loving month!
I am getting ready to be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. (aka Hwy. 192) in Melbourne. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes and I will be there at noon. The PURPLE peeps ready for Sunday/Funday are Vance and Alyssa. With the crazy Aires New Moon energy inspiring all of us, it will truly be a GREAT Sunday/Funday!
Remember to stop in and get all the supplies – stones, candles, incense – you will be desiring to create a truly magical New Moon awakening! Your intention can only be supplied by you. Later! Ciao!
It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!! Very invigorating! Saturday is the last day of the Celtic Tree month of Alder, which is most associated with the Celtic hero/god Bran. Although it is mostly the leaves of the Alder tree that are used in old herbal practices, the Willow tree – whose month begins April 15th – is considered to be a very magical tree. More on this on Sunday. The moon will also be New on Sunday. Lots of new beginnings! Feel the energy getting faster and more inviting! Yippee!
Today I will be at my favorite store, the PURPLE store – Creative Energy located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. (aka Hwy. 192) from noon until closing. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, Alyssa, and Jon-Paul, are looking forward to this New Moon and all the exciting, crazy energy it brings three days before and three days after its peak.
Stop on by! The new sun-catchers are shiny, bright, and twirly! AND they are BIG! Cool Beans! Gotta run! More on Sunday! Later! Ciao!
Another Sunday-Funday at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. (aka Hwy. 192). I will be sharing the fun with the PURPLE peeps, Vance and Alyssa!! Yippee!
It is so good to be back after my mini-vaca with my son and family. I can hardly wait to see what new, exciting, and creative things have arrived since I was last there. Readings are still just $30 for 30 minutes and I will be available from noon until closing (5:00 pm today).
So if you find you have an immediate need or desire for stones or incense or candles, stop on by. Later! Ciao!
Oh, and Happy Orthodox Easter to all!
Great good morning, Everyone! The big day is here! The Certain Age Players, (this includes me!}, will be reading the one act play I wrote, “The Class Reunion” at 4:00 pm at Surfside Playhouse. Entry is love donation. There will be a second play, “St. Arbucks”, also read after intermission.
So today my post will not say anything about this being Orthodox Good Friday, or that Passover ends tomorrow or that Sunday is Orthodox Easter. I will, however, tell you that on Sunday, April 8, from noon until 5:00 pm I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. (aka Hwy. 192), sharing Sunday-Funday with the PURPLE peeps, Vance and Alyssa. I’ll be looking for all the changes that have occurred in my absence and will report them to you.
Have a grand and glorious weekend! Later! Ciao!
Only one day left until we, The Certain Age Performers, have our play-read of Saint Arbucks and The Class Reunion (I co-authored this one!) at the Surfside Playhouse, 301 Ramp Road, Cocoa Beach. The performance begins at 4:00 pm and the cost is a love donation. An early evening of fun! Come and join us! Later! Ciao!
Greetings on this lovely day in the wonderful Celtic Tree month of Alder. This is a special time for us at Creative Energy, aka the PURPLE store, because both Vance and I celebrate our birthdays in this Celtic Tree month. Alder is the fourth month of the Celtic year. When an Alder is felled, its wood changes from yellow to orange to red. The Alder is also associated with the Celtic hero/god, Bran AND its wood makes the best charcoal.
Not only did we move into another Celtic Tree month this past week, but we also celebrated the Spring Equinox and Ostara. Happy Eggs and Bunnies to you all!
Today I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, (aka. Hwy 192) from noon until close. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, Alyssa, and Jon-Paul have tons of information, literature and accoutrements available for you to use this exciting, rejuvenating, birthing energy of springtime to your best advantage. And remember there is a Blue Moon on March 30th, because I won’t be writing to you about it!
Skippy hop-hop, going to get ready to go to the shop! Later! Ciao!

Happy Spring Ahead Day!! This is the day when everyone is slightly confused because our inner clocks keep telling us we are WAY ahead of time itself and our mind and all the clocks are telling us no, we’re running behind and catching up. Whew! This makes it a perfect day to visit Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave. (aka Hwy. 192) to enjoy the peace and serenity there.
The PURPLE peeps keeping the peace (tee hee) today are Vance and Alyssa. I will also be there from noon until close (5:00 pm) available for readings – only $30 for 30 minutes.
Yesterday, I discovered the “pocket stones” made of Astrophyllite. It has a tan matrix and its bladed crystals often form starbursts. Quite a fascinating stone. There was also another fascinating one made of Nuummite which is a combination of Anthophyllite and Gedrite. In this stone the crystals are closely intergrown and the stone gives off flashes of iridescent colors.
I guess you could say, that yesterday I was stoned by the stones! Later! Ciao!
Good Morning! Running late so this will be short and sweet. I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, from 11:00 am until close today, sharing the sweetness of the energy of the PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, Alyssa, and Jon-Paul with all of you! Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes. Have to grab some breakfast yet, so …Later! Ciao!
