~ New Moon in Scorpio ~ Witches Ball Tonight! ~ Creative Energy this Afternoon ~ Happy Birthday, Rick! ~

Welcome to the New Moon in Scorpio! Brilliant! What do we keep? What do we release? What isn’t working in relationships? What old patterns of behavior must we change? Are we operating from fear-based or small desires? Can we see the bigger picture? Time to reassess our decisions and directions.

As we all know, the New Moon (11:38 pm) is the time to set intentions for the month and beyond.  With the Scorpion Moon in opposition to Uranus and Mars square to Saturn, we may feel out of balance, with surprises and possible roadblocks, that may shake our confidence, so just slow down and stay committed and on your path.

Today all paths lead to Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, where I will be available for readings from noon until 5 pm. The PURPLE peeps today are: Vance and Alyssa, who just may be in costume today. I know I will be because…

Today is the WITCHES BALL , at the UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave., West Melbourne, 6pm – 11pm. They are asking for a $5.00 donation and a non-perishable food item or feminine product to be donated at the door. The Theme this year is, Day of the Dead, with costumes suggested. There will be live DJ music, vendors, psychics, potluck dinner (Bring a dish to include), Costume Contest, Raffles, Drumming Circle, and a Samhain Ritual will conclude the festivities. Also, the poster is awesome! Check it out at Creative Energy or Art and Beyond in Satellite Beach! I will be there doing readings, as will Maria Garcia Torano.

Oh, and don’t forget to back up electronics and to double-check any travel plans as Mercury goes Retrograde on Thursday, October 31st.

May your day be joyous and your evening spent in the company of like-minded folk! Later! Ciao!

P.S. Happy Birthday, Rick Carrera!

~ Sloshy, Drippy Friday, October 25th, 2019 ~ A day at Creative Energy! ~

Hola! Today is a drippy, rainy sort of day, excellent for introspection, and with the Sun in Scorpio opposite Uranus, that is exactly what we should be doing. Looking at what do we really want. There are four planets in Earth signs right now which also gives us the desire to ground ourselves. Use this energy. Find out where you are and where YOU really want to go.

On this delightful, sloshy Friday, I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, from noon until around 5 pm. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are getting prepared for Samhain and the store truly reflects this focus. Along with over our 200 Tarot and Oracle decks, there are calendars and day-timers (an antiquated term), and new books, and new Bee-Happy cards. It is over-whelming, but in a good way!

There is a New Moon on Sunday, October 27th, in Scorpio. Passionate, focused Scorpio. This is also the day, of the Witches Ball at the UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave., West Melbourne, 6pm – 11pm. They are asking for a $5.00 donation and a non-perishable food item or feminine product to be donated at the door. The Theme this year is, Day of the Dead, with costumes suggested. There will be live DJ music, vendors, psychics, potluck dinner (Bring a dish to include), Costume Contest, Raffles, Drumming Circle, and a Samhain Ritual will conclude the festivities. Also, the poster is awesome! Check it out at Creative Energy or Art and Beyond in Satellite Beach! I will be there doing readings, as will Maria Garcia Torano.

Later! Ciao!

~ A Beautiful, Blustery Day at Creative Energy!! ~

What a beautiful, blustery day! Getting the fringes of the storm is almost magical. Prayers, of course, to those in its path, but the dreamy, cloudy sky we have this morning is great for imagining and day-dreaming. This is a good thing for the Sun changes signs this week moving from Libra, the great balancer, into Scorpio, who wants us to be clear about what to release so we can have a clearer picture of where it is that we see ourselves in the months to come.

Today, with Mercury sextile Pluto, is a great day to be a seeker. Pluto seeks what is hidden and Mercury asks the questions necessary to uncover what is being sought. On Sunday we have another sextile between Venus and Saturn. If we’re clear about our intentions we can deal with financial stuff and relationships, but this is also a great day to become clear about ourselves and give our self-esteem and creativity a boast. And Monday, October 21st, is a great day for romance (sigh!) with Venus trine Neptune.

The Sun slips into Scorpio on Wednesday, and this shift will be palpable. You will feel the energy change. Scorpio is passionate. It loves to get to the bottom of things. Because of its passionate nature, when we are in Scorpio, it is a great time to decide where you want to go, or to begin a new creation. Those who participate in NaNoWriMo, which begins November 1st, will agree.

Today I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, Melbourne, available for readings from noon until 5:00 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa have a great amount of knowledge between them to help any seekers visiting us today. The new book selection is awesome! And did I mention we have OVER 200 decks of Tarot and Oracle cards?

Don’t forget, Group Therapy, will be performing Improv at the Cocoa Beach Library at 3:00 pm in the Jane Van Thron room. (And it’s free!) Be there or be square! I will definitely be there!

And the Witches Ball will take place on Sunday, October 27th, at the UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave., West Melbourne, 6pm – 11pm. They are asking for a $5.00 donation and a non-perishable food item or feminine product to be donated at the door. The Theme this year is, Day of the Dead, with costumes suggested. There will be live DJ music, vendors, psychics, potluck dinner (Bring a dish to include), Costume Contest, Raffles, Drumming Circle, and a Samhain Ritual will conclude the festivities. Also, the poster is awesome! Check it out at Creative Energy or Art and Beyond in Satellite Beach! I will be there doing readings, as will Maria Garcia Torano.

Enjoy this blustery day, Piglet! Later! Ciao!     P.S. A sextile is an aspect of 60 degrees

~ Friday, October 18th, 2019 ~ ~Another Joy-Filled Day at Creative Energy!!! ~

Another airy-fairy day! The Sun is in Libra and the Moon is in Gemini. Two Air signs, so lots of conversation going on. They are also Trine (120 degrees from each other) so they are working together. If we find a lot of questions being asked, it’s just the Libra energy having fun. And if we have two conversations going on, even if one of them is in your head, thank you Gemini!

Today at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, there will be lots of Air energy at play with the PURPLE peeps, Pamala, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, all participating. I’m looking forward to a lively day there as I will be available for readings from noon until 5 pm. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes and what a great day it is for asking questions.

This Sunday, at 3:00 pm, the Improv troupe, (that I belong to}, “Group Therapy”, will be performing at the Cocoa Beach Library, in the Jane Van Thron room. An Art Exhibition is also being held there, making Cocoa Beach Library, this Sunday, a great place to gather culture and fun!

And don’t forget the Witches Ball on Sunday, October 27th, at the UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave., West Melbourne, 6pm – 11pm. They are asking for a $5.00 donation and a non-perishable food item or feminine product to be donated at the door. The Theme this year is, Day of the Dead, with costumes suggested.

Gotta run! Later! Ciao!

~ Sultry Saturday, October 12th, 2019 at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store!!! ~

Sultry Saturday has arrived! We’re looking at a day that can bring something different, new, exciting, and most likely unexpected into our lives today. Don’t judge it. It is a surprise, so let things unfold. Remember, tomorrow is a Full Moon in Aires. A culmination of events in the direct, action forward, warrior energy of Aires will be mirrored by peace loving, compromising Libra. And to push it up a notch, Pluto, (power and the unknown), has turned Direct and is squaring the Sun. With Pluto in Capricorn, this means that three powerful Cardinal Signs are mixing it up tomorrow. Remember to Smile.

Today I will be smiling at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, from noon until 4:30 pm. Stop in and get a reading, only $30 for 30 minutes. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa have been unpacking all sorts of boxes and there are now well over 100 different Tarot and Oracle Decks in the Tarot cabinet and scattered here and there around the store. I love it! So much to choose from. Lucky for us that they do have lay-away.

The Space Coast Writers Guild Anthology, ‘Change’, will be published soon. Make sure you get a copy as I will have a short piece in it.

Again, don’t forget to get your costume ready for The Witches Ball on Sunday, October 27th! See yesterday’s post for details or check out the Universal Unitarian Church in Melbourne’s website.

And, Mercury goes Retrograde October 31st – November 20th. Back up your information and double read any contracts you may sign.

Later! Ciao!

~ Happy Friday, October 11th, 2019 ~ Another Creative Day at Creative Energy!! ~

Hello, Friday! Yes, today is going to be a tremendous day! We’re in the three-day period before the Full Moon in Aires, on Sunday, October 13th. With the creative energy from the moon in Pisces and the verbal energy of the Sun in Libra this weekend is bound to be caught up in lots of conversation about ‘what if?’ and ‘couldn’t we?’. Expect brain storming in the most unexpected places!

Then with the Full Moon in Aires, on Sunday, bam! We will have the energy to put our ideas, our brain storming into action. What a wonderful time to be alive!

Today I will be alive and lively at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, Melbourne, from noon until 5 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, have been unpacking all the new calendars, date books, and other fabulous books and gift ideas all week. I am so excited to be able to peruse them. My calendar for 2020 was purchased last weekend and I love it! Check it out! ALSO, the Faerie Garden has so many new additions that it is hard to remember what was where, (although I think they move themselves around when we’re not watching.)

Don’t forget the Witches Ball on Sunday, October 27th, at the UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave., West Melbourne, 6pm – 11pm. They are asking for a $5.00 donation and a non-perishable food item or feminine product to be donated at the door. The Theme this year is, Day of the Dead, with costumes suggested. There will be live DJ music, vendors, psychics, potluck dinner (Bring a dish to include), Costume Contest, Raffles, Drumming Circle, and a Samhain Ritual will conclude the festivities. Also, the poster is awesome! Check it out at Creative Energy or Art and Beyond in Satellite Beach! I will be there doing readings, as will Maria Garcia Torano.

Later! Ciao!

~ A Cloudy Sunday-Funday at Creative Energy in the Celtic Month of Ivy!! ~

It’s Sunday! And the Sun is hiding behind the clouds where I am located. We’ve made it through most of the weekend, and with Mercury in opposition to Uranus on Monday, October 7th, we can expect a surprise communication, sudden idea, or perhaps, you have changed course suddenly. Travel plans can be interrupted, and unnecessary words may come out of your mouth, so please think before you speak on Monday. Because Mercury is in Scorpio, and Scorpions don’t like surprise, you may feel a little off-balance as well. Just flow as best you can with it all.

On Monday, the Sun in Libra will be squaring Saturn in Capricorn. Two Cardinal signs squaring each other. Such a combination can trigger despair, or discouragement, a feeling that your work is unsatisfying, or that you are not appreciated for your efforts, or that there is something blocking your progress, or that you and your efforts are being rejected. Just put your head down and carry on. This too will pass, so don’t invest a whole lot of time pulling yourself into a hole.

Tuesday is another day, a sunnier day, with Venus in sexy, seductive, magnetic Scorpio. An intense experience, intense relationship, love, creativity, money, and Self-Esteem issues on a deep, penetrating level uncovering the innards of any or all of the above can be expected. It’s a “Let’s get to the Heart of the Matter kind of day”. With Scorpio in charge the deepest levels will be plumed.

But, today is Sunday-Funday at Creative Energy!! I will be there from noon until 5pm, so literally the same hours the store will be open! Vance and Alyssa will be the PURPLE peeps in charge today. There are boxes of new “stuff”, magical, enchanting stuff being opened every day. So very tempting! The PURPLE store, Creative Energy is located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, aka. Hwy. 192, in Melbourne. There is no better place to spend an overcast afternoon.

Gotta run! Later! Ciao!

~ Saturday, October 5th, 2019 ~ Party time at Creative Energy!!! ~

Here we go into our party! Happy Saturday! This is going to be an amazing day! I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, from noon until 5 pm again today! The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, will all be present and accounted for also. The new organizing-your-life supplies have been arriving, i.e. Calendars, Astrology planners, etc. I even saw a new card game called “Conversation Starters”. This could be a great gift for many people and I may even purchase it myself to see what the “starters” are.

Yesterday, Pluto (planet of power) went Direct and began its forward movement with Saturn in Capricorn. They’ll be exact to each other on January 12. 2020. Power and authority in Saturn. Powerful transformations for those affected by this configuration.

Also, Mercury moved into Scorpio yesterday and will remain there for two months. Lots of deep-down digging to see what’s hidden and what is real. What is the truth? An intense combination with Pluto being Direct. Look for hidden truths to change our perspectives. Check to see where Scorpio is in your chart.

Mercury goes Retrograde, in Scorpio, on October 31st. Happy Samhain! Make major purchases now and take actions toward what you are creating.

“Bless your heart,” may be used a lot today as Mars moved into Libra this morning, not an easy place for Mars to reside. Harmony-seeking Libra and Direct-action Mars trying to make it work. Avoid passive-aggressive action which is what this placement tries to use to resolve its frustration. Be feeling when the anger arises and direct it into positive action.

Time to go! Later! Ciao!

~ Welcome to the Celtic Tree Month of Ivy and a Creative Energy Day!!! ~

Welcome to October and to the Celtic Tree Month of Ivy! We slipped into the month of Ivy on September 30th and will be in it until October 27th (Happy Birthday, Rick Carrera!) Ivy is an interesting choice for honoring. When it isn’t climbing up a tree or house, it doesn’t produce flowers in the spring or berries in the fall. However, when it is climbing both flowers and fruit are produced. How does this relate to us? Perhaps, because when we are striving (climbing) toward a goal we also become more productive?

Ives are evergreen or a deep green in color. Their spiral movement as they climb, prompted our ancestors to associate Ivy with immortality, resurrection, and rebirth. Ivy also symbolizes fidelity.

The Moon is in Capricorn and the Sun is in Libra this weekend. Both are Cardinal signs. Libra is an Air sign, and they do love conversations and relationship. Capricorn is an Earth sign and usually associated with business. This would be a great weekend to get to the bottom of what it is that is happening with your business relationships, or relationships in general. What is happening with them? Do they feel right? Or are they irritating? And where does the irritation exit?

As today is Friday, I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, from noon until 5 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa will all be there today, spiraling their conversations up, down, and all around. A fine time will be had by all! Join us!

Later! Ciao!
