Planning with Pentacles

It’s been a juggling day today. This is good. Reminds me of the Two of Pentacles in Tarot. In the Rider Waite deck he is a happy soul juggling two golden coins. Positively expressed it could be about multi-tasking, bringing things together and starting to create something new. For me its been about starting theContinue reading “Planning with Pentacles”

Mercurial

22. Celebration time as Mercury resumes its direct motion. The last one wasn’t exactly smooth sailing but this one has been pretty choppy. It’s been reminiscent of the astrological square aspect.  Various energies not relating or understanding each other, causing friction, but building, always building. Staying the course and working through the conflicts to findContinue reading “Mercurial”

Stories of synchroncity

Late post tonight as just heading home after a lovely evening of Taoist storytelling by Jean-Marc. The shop was a lovely venue for listening to stories by an amazing storyteller who brought them to life with great expression and comic touches. And the universal enduring wisdom of Tao too. I feel there might be somethingContinue reading “Stories of synchroncity”

Healing Resources

25. It’s been quiet in the shop today so i’ve been taking the time to work on my ever growing to do list. After sorting out some of the “absolutely must do’s” and managed to find the space and energy to devote to something that has been gently buzzing around my energy field since theContinue reading “Healing Resources”

Sustained

Not all messages are words. Nor are they pictures. Sometimes they are people. I had a session today with my coach where we got into an exploration of “self-chat” that, if we all confessed to each other, we all have. That second guessing, constantly evaluating and comparing, inner critic.  Running a shop, through inner guidanceContinue reading “Sustained”

Beaming with Love

What a day.  Busy, active, reflective, discursive and…expansive. I had a new helper in the shop today.  A beautiful and unique quartz obelisk both snowy and clear. It’s been snoozing away in our Specialist crystals collection and today it wanted to be out and shining. And shining it did.  I meditated with this wonderful being,Continue reading “Beaming with Love”

The Cuddle Grid

It’s been another lovely day in the shop. After meditating this morning before opening I was drawn to “grid” the shop with rose quartz. Gridding is one of the great ways to work with crystals by placing them in different patterns around a space or around a person. It raises the vibration as well asContinue reading “The Cuddle Grid”

Smiling at Serendipity

Whatever blip I experienced last week is over.  This morning I meditated (Deepak’s Manifesting through Grace, amazing) and spent some time reviewing my transits and reflecting upon their messages.  Me time.  Me time that involved connecting to source (Pisces), Me (Aries) and some methodical analysis (Virgo), this seems to be the alchemical combination I needContinue reading “Smiling at Serendipity”

Puppy Joy

Recently, very loving and generous Mother and Daughter friends of mine bought me an Oracle deck as a celebratory gift for opening the shop. The deck is The Spirit Messages by John Holland. On New Moon in Virgo I consulted the deck and was guided to a card called Animal Kingdom. I knew therefore toContinue reading “Puppy Joy”
