~Sunday, October 28th, 2018 ~ Witches Ball ~ Improv at the Cocoa Beach Library ~

Today is the first day of the Celtic Tree Month of Reed. It is harvested in November for use in thatching roofs, thus it provides protection. When Pan was chasing Syrinx, she changed herself into a reed, (protection again). Pan was distraught and confused by the myriad of reeds. He cut several and bound them together to create the panpipe so he could express his lust and sorrow.

This is also the day of the “Witches Ball”, held annually at the Universal Unitarian Church of Brevard located at 2185 Meadowlane Ave., Melbourne. The festivities begin at 6:00 pm. There is NO entry fee but there will be beverages and food – bring a dish to share if you can, music, drumming, free fun activities for children will be provided by many, including Alyssa from Creative Energy (the PURPLE store). I will available for readings, only $30 for 30 minutes and the evening’s activities will conclude with a Samhain ritual. This is a family friendly event and I have always had fun attending it!

To get in the proper mood for a fun evening attend Free Improv at the Cocoa Beach Library provided by “Group Therapy.” This is also a free event. I may not make be able to participate in the troupe today, due to a prior commitment, but I know it will be fantastic and fun time for all.

Try to have fun today, no matter what you do or where you go, because this coming week will be all about values, acting NOT reacting, and relationships due to both the Sun and Venus being in Scorpio. Also, on Halloween, Mercury moves into Sagittarius (the truth teller). Think twice or three times before speaking. Try to consider, “Is it truthful? Is it kind? Is it necessary?” Before speaking.

Life is good and getting better. Take care of you this week, and be mindful of what you are creating with your mind, your words, and your actions. Later! Ciao!

~ Happy Freaky Friday!! ~ October 26, 2018 ~ Creative Energy Day!!! ~

Happy Freaky Friday!! Wearing my Halloween costume to Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, today! Let’s get in the mood for the BEST holiday of the year! Well, best next to Beltaine. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, are hovering in and around the PURPLE store, Creative Energy, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, aka Hwy 192, in Melbourne. Decorating for the holiday has been continuous and is truly amazing!

This past week, the Sun moved into Scorpio on Monday, joining Retrograde Venus, along with Mercury and Jupiter, who were already in this intense sign. (Feeling a little moody and distraught, are we?)  On Wednesday, we had a Full Moon in Taurus, with Uranus in Taurus already opposing the Sun and Venus in Scorpio. The result sudden chaotic energy and more changes, BUT this was the chance to move forward where you couldn’t before OR it brought up events that affected the collective. This energy will continue to move with us for a while. Use it wisely.

Remember Self-Care during this period. Although the energy came fast and furious this past week, it also offered us a chance to use it to change our lives, our perceptions, or perhaps even our attitudes. The best advice is to monitor your information intake. Step away from the news for a day or even turn it off on your phone. We are the only ones who can nurture and protect ourselves.

I will be haunting Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, today from noon until 4:30 pm. (Performing Improv this evening at a private party.) Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes and this will be the only day I’ll be at the shop this week.

Don’t forget Improv at the Library, Cocoa Beach Library, this Sunday, October 28th at 2:00 pm!

Later! Ciao!

~ Friday, October 19th, 2018 ~ Begin the Weekend at Creative Energy, the PURPLE Store!! ~

What an amazing weekend we are beginning! The Cocoa Village Fall Art & Craft Festival is this Saturday and Sunday. Look for me! I’ll be selling my book, “Beyond the Fine Line” on Brevard Ave. near Church St.

The Melbourne Independent Film Festival began on Thursday, October 18, at The Oaks Theater, in Melbourne. On Saturday night at 7:00 pm, “The Model”, a film I was an extra in, (unless I’m on the cutting room floor), along with Angela Smith, Dave Hill, and Leslie Roth, and starring Nancy Matican-Bock, will be debuted. With so much local talent in it, this is a definite must-see.

To begin this weekend, I will be doing readings at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., Melbourne, from noon until close. If you have never visited this enchanted shop, you owe yourself the favor of indulging in its aroma and experiencing the layers of pleasures for your mind and soul residing here. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are welcoming and kind, and are able to answer any questions you pose.

Alyssa has been polishing her skills on the properties and uses of stones and gave a very informative presentation in Sebastian yesterday, while I spoke about auras and chakras. Neither of us are at Pamela’s or Vance’s level of expertise yet, regarding stones, but we do like to spread the word.

The Sun enters Scorpio next Tuesday, October 23rd, and there will be a Full Moon (Blood Moon) in Taurus on Wednesday, October 24th. Next week is also the last week of the Celtic Tree Month of Ivy. What situations have you been climbing up into and turning around? Ivy is about resurrection and rebirth.

Time to begin the weekend! Wahoo! Later! Ciao!

Sunday-Funday at Creative Energy!! ~ Sunday, October 14th, 2018

A beautiful Sunday-Funday! The water in the river was beautiful this morning as I walked over the bridge. Only one motorboat polluting the silence and the water. Fisher-people quietly guarding the peace. The humidity was not yet at its peak. A fantastic day to be alive. As I walked, I was reminded of the quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein, “The mystical is not how the world is, but that it is.”  How appropriate for a Sunday-Funday!

Today we are preparing for Monday, October 15th, a day for sharing thoughts and feelings, for connecting with others, and for communicating your heart’s desires. It is a peaceful day in a week of deep, sometimes dark, emotional currents brought to the surface by the four planets in  Scorpio.

I am preparing for my dynamic week by being available for readings, (only $30 for 30 minutes), at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, Melbourne. Joining me are Vance and Alyssa, the PURPLE peeps of the day. Sundays are always a laid-back day, filled with anecdotes, and laughter. Stop by and join in the joy!

And now another reminder! Alyssa and I will be doing workshops at the Indian River County Library, 1001 Sebastian Blvd., Sebastian, on Thursday, October 18th from 2 – 4 pm. Alyssa’s workshop is entitled, “Metaphysical Properties of Gemstones and Crystals,” and mine is, “Auras, Chakras, and Psychic Energy.”

The time has arrived for me to mystically prepare for the day. Later! Ciao!

Saturday, October 13th, 2018 ~ Galloping Glumps of Goodness at Creative Energy, the PURPLE Store!

Great Glumps of Galloping Goodness! What a wonderfully sunny Saturday! There are still four planets in Scorpio so the undercurrent of tension we’ve been feeling will continue. Because we are so heavily saturated with Scorpion energy – hidden agendas, both ours and others, will surface. This is the time to look at the world, our lives, our relationships, and our selves with a new perspective. Are we wiling to change? If not, we will be stuck in the old paradigm while the world progressing into a new one. This will raise our discomfort level to more extreme heights, so it would be much easier on our selves to just let go. Let go of “this is how I always think”, “this is how things are always done”, and “this is how everything should be.”

This coming week will contain drama or friction or static or all three, but not to the intense level of the preceding weeks. Step into change, for this is becoming our new norm. We are deconstructing this paradigm and creating our new one. What do we want it to look like?

Today will be another silly, sappy Saturday at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., where I will be available for readings, (only $30 for 30 minutes), from 11:00 am til closing. The PURPLE peep, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, are sharing the excitement of the coming holiday, Samhain, with all that enter. (And also wondering, what the heck are Glumps?)

Again, a reminder that Alyssa and I will be at the Indian River County Library, 1001 Sebastian Blvd, in Sebastian, this Thursday, October 18th, from 2 – 4 pm, presenting workshops. Alyssa will be presenting Metaphysical Properties of Gemstones and Crystals, and I will be presenting Auras, Chakras, and Psychic Energy. Thursdays are great days to take a scenic drive south!

Off to gather up the galloping glumps of goodness for the day! Later! Ciao!

Friday, October 12th, 2018 ~ Beginning a Fun Weekend at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store!!

This is Friday and we all are thankful that we are here to experience and enjoy it. This is a day to count our blessings. We are so fortunate Michael did not change its course like Charlie did. Definitely a day of thanksgiving and prayer for all the people whose lives Michael affected.

Crazy dynamic energies and deep emotional undercurrents reigned this past week. We must keep in mind that we are in a period of “deconstruction”. We are deconstructing so many things we never knew we could change. And this weekend, with the Sun in Libra and the Moon now in Sagittarius, it is now time for us to lighten up a bit and go out and have some fun.

To begin the glorious fun of the weekend, I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, Melbourne from noon until closing. Readings are only $30 for 30 minutes. The Spirit of Samhain (Halloween) is now residing within the shop and the PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa are preparing for this celebration by decorating the store in displays that are outdoing last year’s presentations. There is no time better to stop by and absorb some of the enticing energy and also purchase a cauldron, book, bell, and candle for future use.

Just want to remind everyone that Alyssa and I will be doing workshops this coming Thursday, October 18th, from 2 – 4 pm at the Indian River County Library, 1001 Sebastian Blvd. Sebastian. Alyssa’s workshop is entitled, ‘Metaphysical Properties of Gemstones and Crystals’. Mine is entitled, ‘Chakras, Auras, & Psychic Energy.’ The workshops are free and Thursdays are great days to take a drive.

Time to become glorious! Later! Ciao!

P.S. This would have been my mother’s 98th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom! I have a doughnut for you!

Super Saturday at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store!!! ~ Saturday, October 6th, 2018

Super Saturday begins today! Yay! Aires Rock, mainly because we can Roll so well. And with Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, all of October, then Retrograde in Libra all of November, and then back into Scorpio all of December into January of 2019…it would behoove all of us to learn to rock and roll through our personal relationships. Venus Retrograde, wow! Time to look at how we view ourselves (self-love), our relationship with money (love it or hate it, attract it or not), and relationships with others (old loves, new loves, family love, love of humanity). Time to tweak our relationships here and there, but no permanent changes…maybe negotiate to move the relationship to higher level being as on Monday we have a New Moon in Libra (balance) but squaring Mars in Aquarius. Push – Pull.

A New Moon is the time to make a list of what you desire. A list of what you want, NOT what you think you can have. Write it down. What are your dreams? They are empowering because they come from spirit.

Lots of movement this week with Mercury moving into Scorpio on Tuesday then opposing Uranus on Wednesday with the possible result of unexpected communication. And Mars is squaring Venus so…. Keep your cool! Remember to ACT NOT REACT!! A good time to be objective. We are the only ones who allow information to be taken into our minds, so let’s take responsibility for that.

With all the dynamic changes this week, it is a great time to get a reading (only $30 for 30 minutes) and I will be available at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm today. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, have a stockpile of information available on stones, books, candles, etc. to assist you on your spiritual journey.

Right now, I must journey to my closet to prepare for the day. Later! Ciao!

Happy October 5th!! A Blessed day at Creative Energy!!

Today is a blessed day. At sunrise, when we began our walk, the sun and the rain vied for our attention. No rainbows were spotted, but a breakfast was eaten. We have moved into the Celtic Tree month of Ivy, leaving Vine behind us on September 29th.

Ivy (Gort) is weak until it spirals around a tree or up a wall, where it grows strong and blossoms, allowing the birds to scatter its seed where they wish. Its helix growth pattern was associated by the Celts, the Greeks, and the Romans, with immortality, resurrection, and rebirth. And as it was similar to the grape vine, it gained a reputation for diminishing drunkenness, thus is worn by Bacchus and Dionysus. It is said that if a perfect leaf is gathered when the moon is one day old – the leaf will be very useful as a love amulet.

Venus is going retrograde (October 5th – November 16th) in passionate Scorpio today. When Venus is in Scorpio not only is she magnetic, seductive, and deep, but also issues around boundaries, trust, and protection of her inner self are brought into the light. Control issues arise, because she will not be hurt again. This brings up safety – emotional safety, on a deep, often unconscious, level. So, we have the feminine (Venus) in Scorpio, the sign that loves to brings hidden issues to light. With Pluto – the ruler of Scorpio, now once again going Direct (September 30th) in Capricorn along with Venus in Scorpio, we have entered a period of “all or nothing at all.”  No pussy-footing around now. It will be interesting to see how this affects our current political situation.

There will be no pussy-footing around for me today as I will be available for readings (only $30 for 30 minutes) at Creative Energy – the PURPLE store – located at 780 W. New Haven Ave, Melbourne, from noon until around 5:30 pm today. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa, have been scattering leaves and fairy dust all over the store in preparation for Samhain. The excitement is building!! All the supplies you will need to celebrate in a royal witchy style are on hand, awaiting your arrival. Stop by soon!

The magic of the season has begun. Am off to prepare for my day. Later! Ciao!
