~ A “Get Up and Go” Day ~ A Creative Energy Day! ~ Happy Birthday, Ken Byrnes! ~

Get Up and Go! That is theme for today. We have the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Aires – a delightful combination of air and fire.  Mars is in Sagittarius, and in Capricorn we have Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. With this combination of fire, water, and earth, we all feel like moving, getting up and going somewhere, doing something, making something happen. And especially anything that would involve any type of physical activity, running, baseball, B-ball, surfing. We feel the motivation to get up and move!

Remember, we are in Aquarius. This is the time to allow ourselves to think ‘outside of the box.’ It is a time to find the Universal voice we all have within us and to consider how we can help humanity. And being in Aquarius, we find that we are all talking too much, so take time to listen. We may just hear the answer to the quandary we are in.

The answer for me today, is to be available for readings 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, are all available and ready to answer any question that may be presented.

This is Ken Byrnes 90th Birthday! He is a playwright, songwriter, and athlete. A very fine example of Aquarius and Aires energy. Happy Birthday, Ken!

Time for me to ‘get up and go’! Later! Ciao!

~ Happy Lunar New Year! `

I promised some things about the Lunar New Year today. The Lunar New Year is based on the Lunar calendar. Today is the day that it is celebrated in China, however, it is celebrated on different dates in other Asian countries.

This year is the celebration of the Metal Rat. The story goes like this:  Buddha invited all the animals to a party and that the first twelve to arrive would be honored. Rat convinced Ox to give him a ride over the river and rode on his head. When they arrived, he jumped down and was the first one to arrive, with Ox then being number two.

Rats have many good qualities – hard working, family orientated, good leadership, and represent fertility – but what they lack is courage to fulfill their dreams. They are very good at saving money although they can be stingy – resulting in being penny wise and pound foolish.

This is a time for family. A time of gifting, especially money in red envelopes. The Dragon and Lion Dances along with a Lantern Festival, are all part of this celebration. During the Ming Dynasty, an entire month would be given over to the New Year. Now there is not even a day-off given for the celebration in mainland China, although it is still celebrated.

Happy New Year! Later! Ciao!

~ New Moon in Aquarius Today ~ Great Day to be at Creative Energy ~

Happy Friday! It’s a little damp outside, but at least it’s not snowing. The Sun moved into Aquarius on Monday, January 20th, and the Moon is now also in Aquarius, resulting in a New Moon and overdose of Aquarius energy for the weekend. Capricorn is a steady rule-follower, while Aquarius is the exact opposite, breaking or changing the rules. With a New Moon, we have a new beginning, and with it being in Aquarius, this is the weekend to be our REAL self. “Let me, be me” energy. Enjoy it.

There are still three planets in Capricorn, keeping us restrained, and two in Pisces, resulting in a let’s go into the future, “let’s see what’s next” energy. This along with Aquarius energy will make for a totally interesting weekend.

We entered the Celtic Tree Month of Rowan on Tuesday, January 21st. The English author, Walter de la Mare, wrote, “So potent is the flower or berry or wood of the rowan or witchwood or quicken or whichen-tree or mountain ash against the wiles of the elf-folk, the dairymaids use it for cream-stirrers and cowherds for a switch.” The Scotts used it along with red thread to find witches and to counteract any evil they may have wrought. Scandinavian myths said Thor (the god of Thunder) ruled this tree and planted them near their buildings to prevent any damage from storms.

Tomorrow is the Lunar New Year. This year we honor the Rat.

More on that tomorrow, because today 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 have been rearranging displays and bringing more romance into the nooks and corners of the shop. There is something for that special someone hidden somewhere in the store. Ask anyone of them to help you find it.

This is the last weekend of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at the Surfside Playhouse, 301 Ramp Road, Cocoa Beach, so make certain you get your tickets for this classic. Also, “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” has opened at MCT (Melbourne Civic Theatre). This Nora and Delia Ephron play is a must-see, especially for women.

Gotta run! Later! Ciao!

~ Crystal Bead and Book (aka Book and Bead Outlet) Psychic Fair Today!!! ~

We are stepping into Aquarian energy this week with the Sun moving into Aquarius on Monday. Venus is now in Pisces and Mercury is also in Aquarius. Only four planets left in Capricorn. We are beginning our forward movement into 2020.

There may be the feeling of too much happening at once this week, but flow with it. Let life happen. It will only frustrate us if we try to control things. Aquarius will redirect our paths in the most interesting way, and our lives will be so much better for it.

Today, I will be at the Island Crystal and Bead, aka Book and Bead Outlet, 950 W. Courtnay Pkwy., Merritt Island. I’ve been told I am booked solid today, however, there are many fine readers there so call Chris at 321-453-2665, to schedule a reading. The Fair will also be held tomorrow.

Don’t forget this Sunday, January 19th, Group Therapy will be performing Improv at the Cocoa Beach Library at 3 pm! And it’s FREE!

Long drive ahead today, so gotta run. Later! Ciao!

~ Happy Birthday, Aimee! ~ Creative Energy Day!! ~

Well, we are approaching the end of the Celtic Tree month of Birch and will be entering Rowan next week Tuesday. Also, the Sun enters Aquarius on Monday, and the Chinese New Year is next week Saturday, January 25th.

Today, however, the Sun is still in Capricorn, (sustained energy, taking care of tasks) with the Moon in Scorpio (Focus). There is also a T-Square between the Moon (Scorpio) opposing Uranus (Taurus) and Mercury (Aquarius). The energy of the T-Square is being released into Leo. This T-Square is asking for expression, and will be felt by Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius. With all the focused energy between the Sun and the Moon, use this T-Square to dress up, have fun, be expressive. 

Also, watch for miscommunications and misunderstandings this weekend. All that focus may leave some of us with blinders on as to what is really happening around us.

What is happening today, is joy and fun at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne. I will be there from noon until 5 pm along with the PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa. There is still time to wish Aimee “Happy Birthday!” so don’t forget to do so. We love our little Capricorn!

Tomorrow is the Psychic Fair at Island Crystal and Bead, formerly known as Book and Bead Outlet, 950 N. Courtenay Pkwy, Merritt Island, behind McDonald’s and Arby’s. The Fair is also on Sunday; however, I will ONLY be there on Saturday, January 18th. The Fair runs from 11 – 4 pm. Please call Chris at 321-453-2665 for a reservation as the spots fill up quickly.

Hippity-hop! Off to the Shop! Later! Ciao!

~ Creative Energy Day!! Celebrate!!! ~

Wow! An onslaught of energy began yesterday with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer. Sudden endings mainly driven by deep needs are taking us to a rebirth in a whole new area. Eclipses heighten activity. Being in Cancer there is a huge emotional pull to this activity. As the Moon in Cancer is in opposition to the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn, we could be experiencing emotional release, heighten activity in institutions, traditions, and the imploding of old ways of doing things. Keep in mind that the effects of a Full Moon are for three days before and three days after it is Full.

Uranus turned Direct yesterday also, giving us the go-ahead and energy to complete any changes we’ve been in the process of for the last year. The path will open for you and/or you will be nudged, in some cases pushed, onto it.

On Sunday, January 12th, there will be a Saturn-Pluto conjunction. Depending on your chart it will either force a breakdown of the tension building – with doors opening afterwards, or if you’ve been facing challenges, it will give you tremendous support from people, signs, messages, that will lead to a slow rebirth. In either case, keep the faith, baby!

We are in the breakdown, breakup, of the old. Welcome change. This is the New Year. This is what we have been preparing for all of 2019, welcome 2020. It’s going to be crazy, surprise-filled year!

Today, surprise, surprise, I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy 192, in Melbourne from noon until 5:00 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa have been slipping in all sorts of new Valentine displays. There are henna kits, candles, lotions and all sorts of tempting jewelry to help you in your quest for the perfect gift for your perfect someone.

THE ARTIST’S WAY ~ I will be facilitating this class at Beachside Arts and Beyond, 246 Hwy A1A, Satellite Beach, beginning Monday, January 13, from 11- 1 pm. Cost $10/class. Call Beachside Arts and Beyond 321-428-4800 to register. Walk-ins are welcomed also.

Don’t forget “Arsenic and Old Lace” at the Surfside Playhouse this weekend through January 26th!

Later! Ciao!

~ Full Moon in Cancer Today ~ Fun at Creative Energy!!! ~

I’m Baaack! Back from the wearisome effects of the California Crud that attacked me before Christmas. As I have no Earth in my chart, and the sky is full of planets and the sun in Earth signs, I was grounded. Literally!

Today, we have a Full Moon in Cancer, so if you feel torn between being a workaholic and wanting to nest and bake cookies, just know you are responding to the signals being send to you by the Universe.

We are in the Celtic Tree month of Birch until January 20th. This is a very hardy, self-sowing tree, that forms groves. This is a reminder that although we are independent beings, we all have a grove we belong to and within. This tree is associated with witchcraft as Birch is the used to make broomsticks and the anointment of them is said to be, “Away we go, not too high and not too low.”

Siberian shamans seek out the Birch because the scarlet white-spotted fly agaric, (check your Christmas cards, it may appear on them), or “magic mushrooms” grow at the base.  They would ingest them and then climb the tree cutting nine notches in its crown.

This will be my first day back at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Rd, aka. Hwy. 192, Melbourne since early December. I will be available for readings from noon until 4:30 pm. (It’s Opening Night for Arsenic and Old Lace at Surfside Playhouse, 301 Ramp Road, Cocoa Beach.) Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are all in fine form and ready to assist you with your New Year.

THE ARTIST’S WAY ~ I will be facilitating this class at Beachside Arts and Beyond, 246 Hwy A1A, Satellite Beach, beginning Monday, January 13, from 11- 1 pm. Cost $10/class. Call Beachside Arts and Beyond 321-428-4800 to register. Walk-ins are welcomed also.
