~ 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.

~ Holiday Magic at Creative Energy Today ~ “Group Therapy” at Cocoa Beach Library on Sunday, December 15th! ~

On this very blustery, rainy day, we are beginning our final week of the Sun residing in Sagittarius. With four planets currently in Capricorn, one in Taurus, and the Sun about to move into Capricorn, our ideas will have to be backed up with effort, practical plans, and be grounded in actions steps to become manifest. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, turned Direct on December 12th. Now is the time to accept yourself, as you are, for whom you are, and embrace yourself. Congratulate yourself on the tremendous growth you have taken in your life! None of us are the same person we were six months ago, much less the person we were a year ago. Celebrate!

With Neptune trine Mars (intuitive flow, knowing what to do next) and Venus conjunct Pluto (passionate, magnetic drive for fulfillment and satisfaction) today will be a great day to manifest your dreams. And on Sunday, Jupiter trines Uranus. Expect the unexpected to unfold in most amazing ways.

Mars sextiles Saturn on Thursday, December 19th. A great day for planning, using the stable energy available to build on. Also, with Mercury squaring Neptune on that day it is a magnificent day for healers, artists, spiritual practices, BUT it can also create miscommunications and misunderstandings.

Next week, Saturday, December 21st is the Winter Solstice followed by a Solar Eclipse on December 26th. Anything can happen. Whenever. So, make certain plans have already been laid.

Today, is another Creative day at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy 192, Melbourne. An inspiring place to spend a rainy day, hanging out with the PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, who will delightedly help you find the best gifts to fill up stockings or to place beneath a tree. I will be available for readings, only $30 for 30 minutes, from noon until later. Join us for Candlelight Shopping! We’re open until 8:30, serving a treat, and bringing joy into your life.

Don’t forget! Tomorrow, Sunday, December 15th, our Improv troupe, GROUP THERAPY, will be performing in the Jane Van Thron room at the Cocoa Beach Library at 3:00 pm! And it’s  Free!!

Later! Ciao!

~ Wonderfully Amazing Weekend at Creative Energy (the PURPLE store)!!! ~

The Holiday Season has arrived! I spent Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday partying with friends. Good timing as the Sun was in Sagittarius and the Moon was in Gemini – Freedom and Communicating. With five planets –  yes, FIVE planets in Earth (four in Capricorn and one in Taurus) – all the partying was very grounded.

The Moon has now moved into Cancer, so with the Sun in Sagittarius (Freedom, no limitations), the Moon in Cancer (Self-awareness, Home) and the five planets grounding us in Earth, we may feel torn between a nice hot toddy at home and at the same time wanting to just get out of town. An interesting weekend for all of us.

This is an amazing day at Creative Energy (the PURPLE store) located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne, because the Holiday goodies are now on the shelves and of course, I will be there from noon until at least 5 pm, available for readings – only $30 for 30 minutes, along with the Totally Amazing PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa!! They have all been officially confirmed and sanitized as Holiday Helpers and are brimming full of gift ideas!

Let’s get this weekend rolling! Wa-hoo! Later! Ciao!

~ Heigh Ho, Come to the Cocoa Village Craft Fair Today!! ~

Another fantastic fall day before Thursday’s Full Moon in Gemini. We’re still under a lot of Capricorn energy (four planets), so don’t fight it, use it. Get what needs to be done completed.

Today, I will be at the Cocoa Craft Fair, in Cocoa Village, persuading everyone to purchase my book, Beyond the Fine Line, which is also available on Amazon and at Cocoa Beach Essentials, 36 S. Atlantic Ave., in Cocoa Beach. (Remember shop local and support small businesses!)

With the Sun in Sagittarius Squaring Neptune (in Pisces) while Venus is harmonizing Neptune, we find ourselves right where we are supposed to be at this moment in time, with the people we are supposed to be with, so, relax. On Monday, Mercury leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius, please think before you speak.

On Wednesday, Venus is conjunct to Saturn – time for a reality check, about everything in our lives, i.e. relationships, money, employment, etc. With the Full Moon in Gemini on Thursday, we may feel a little frustrated and unable to see the next step we are to take. Deep breathing is recommended, along with Trust. Life is getting more exciting as we reach the end of this decade. Enjoy it!

Gotta Run! Remember to support small businesses! And come to the Cocoa Village Craft Fair! Later! Ciao!

~ Double Fire Energy Weekend! Begin it at Creative Energy!! ~

Hiddey Ho! May have misspelt that, but hello! It’s Friday and the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Aires, both today and tomorrow. Wow! Double fire! Lots of energy, maybe a bit of outrageous energy, but lots of fun, positive energy to begin our weekend. Both Aires and Sag can be a bit blunt, but they are very honest, even when their mouth works before their brain checks out what they’re saying. Have fun this weekend! Get in a party mode, enjoy this Big fun energy!

Today, I will be having fun at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy 192, in Melbourne. I’ll only be there from noon until 4 pm (Annie Jr opens tonight at Surfside Playhouse at 7:00 pm) but Creative Energy does have expanded hours this evening (candlelight shopping) so definitely put it on your stop-on-the-way-home list! The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are all in a very festive mood and have a trillion or more gift ideas to share with you!

This is short, but adorably sweet, because all this Fire energy is making it impossible to sit and write any more, so…Later! Ciao!

~ It’s a Good Morning! ~ Another Creative Day at Creative Energy!! ~

Good Morning! Today is the last day that Jupiter, the planet of expansion, big plans, and high ideals is in fun-loving, spiritual, Sagittarius. Tomorrow Monday, December 2nd it moves into Capricorn for a year. This means that it is time to make plans and follow through, as limitations are imposed on Jupiter, and now is the time to make things real. We already have Pluto, Saturn, the South Node, and Venus in Capricorn. Serious reigns in transformations, structure, karma, and relationships already. If we make good use of this energy, we will reap good rewards.

This week brings shifting energy as Venus conjuncts the South Node (Node) on Monday – old relationships popping up, relationships ending or old relationship issues showing up again. On Tuesday, Mercury sextiles Pluto – say ‘Hello’ to hidden things that put a spin on everything. Also, Venus connects with Mars on December 3rd, passion and creativity mixing with the manifestation energy of Capricorn and some really tremendous results can happen.

Today, tremendous results are happening at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne. This is the place for all your creative gift-giving! The PURPLE peeps, Vance and Alyssa, will be available to help you fulfill the challenge of finding the perfect present for that certain someone (or yourself). I will be available for readings from noon until 5:00 pm or so.

Don’t forget my book, BEYOND THE FINE LINE, is available at another small shop, Cocoa Beach Essentials, and is delightfully small and flexible enough to be a stocking stuffer!

Gotta run! Later! Ciao!

~ Gobble! Gobble! ~ Happy Friday, at Creative Energy! ~

Gobble! Gobble! What a wonderfully gratitude-full day, my Thanksgiving was! I hope yours was as well. We moved into the Celtic Tree Month of Elder on November 25th. This tree was very revered in all parts of Europe, Northern and Southern. Permission from the tree herself had to be asked before a twig could be taken or great misfortune would occur to whatever the wood was used for. In Ireland, it was even forbidden to take any of her branches. Elder’s leaves can repel insects, its berries make fine wine and deep purple dye, and carpenters favor it for its close grain.

Mother Elder was so revered that the early Christian church had to cast it into ill-repute by declaring it was the wood used in Jesus’s cross and that it was the tree Judas hung himself on. Because of this campaign, the reputation of Lady Elder is mixed, although her healing ability remains.

The Moon is in Capricorn and the Sun is in Sagittarius this weekend. Lots of athletic energy abounds within us. There are also four planets in Capricorn but with the Sun in Sagittarius we will want to move. This is the energy that makes you want to wiggle in your seat and get up and walk around. Use this creative inventive energy!  What are you willing to create that you will take a risk for? What can you be thankful for? This is a weekend of high energy with focus. Use it to your best advantage.

Today, I will be focusing my energy at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka. Hwy. 192, Melbourne, from noon until 5:00 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, will be focusing their high energy into assisting you in finding the perfect gift for someone or for yourself. Remember supporting a small business is supporting our community!

As a side note, another small business, in Cocoa Beach, “Cocoa Beach Essentials”, is now carrying my book, BEYOND THE FINE LINE. So if you are up in that neck of the woods, stop in, and support them. It is a lovely little shop that recently opened.

I’ll leave you with a quote from the astrologer, Debra Silverman, “You know why we live forever? Because it takes that long to say ‘Thank You.’“ Namaste. Later! Ciao!

~ A Seriously Fun Weekend is Beginning ~ Also a Creative Energy Day!! ~

Welcome to the fun-filled energy of Sagittarius! The Sun slid out of the seriously brooding, but creative sign of Scorpio and into the fiery energy of Sagittarius today at 9:59 am Eastern. With the Moon in Libra, this will be a great weekend to party and have fun. This is because Sag’s know how to party and Libra’s have a great sense of humor. Also, Mercury is still in opposition to Uranus, mind opposite genus. A very yummy time to be had by all!

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 5:00 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, are gearing up their gratitude ideas and are willing to share them in this wonderful month of Gratitude. There is so much to be grateful for and having a journal to enumerate your blessings every day is easy to find at Creative Energy. (The leather-bound ones are excellent!)

This is also the last weekend of “Curtains” at the Surfside Playhouse, 301 Ramp Rod, Cocoa BEACH. There will be four shows:  Evening performances on Friday and Saturday and Matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets may still be available. You can order on-line or call the Box Office at 321-783-3127.

Later! Ciao!

~ Creative Energy at it’s Best!! ~

If you are feeling a little on edge today, or asking what am I doing here, or why am I alive? Know that you are feeling the energy of the Universe. The Sun is in Scorpio, the seeker, the unconscious part of us, the sensual part of us, and the Moon is in sensitive, easily offended, Cancer. There is a total of four planets in water signs. No wonder we all feel emotional.

This watery, emotional state will last throughout the weekend. This is the time to examine your feelings. Smell fresh laundry, cuddle on the sofa with a partner, an animal, or an afghan. Explore your sensual self. We often neglect this part of our lives. This weekend, jump into the “feeling” of life. Choose to be here on this planet and in this life. Contemplate this world. What can I do to help, even though it hurts?

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 also be there to greet you and to answer your questions. The calendar and day-timers are amazing this year. As well as some very well-tooled journals for you or for a friend.

Tomorrow is the Book and Bead Fair at the Book and Bead Outlet Store, located at 950 Courtenay Pkwy, Merritt Island. Call Chris at 321-453-2665 to schedule your appointment. I will only be there on Saturday, although the Fair runs through Sunday.

Off to the kitchen to make some coffee. Later! Ciao!
