NEW YEAR READING 07th JANUARY 2019
HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR 2019
Welcome all and blessed be for it is time to ring the changes,
As lists with heartfelt intentions are made,
We are busy re-arrangers,
A fond farewell to 2018 is said,
For our own journeys call us all along,
Whether we go slow or fast we find our own way,
As long as we sing our own song,
So Happy New Year I say!
Happy New year to each and every one of you!! I feel doubly blessed being an eclectic Witch, I can appreciate the opportunities of pagan seasons and sabbats, and Gregorian calendar time lines. Plenty of chances for us all to review, resolve, renew and continue in our life cycle. Work the moon cycles in with that and the wheel of time can be beautiful stage managed to help us enhance our energy, heal, and grow.
I really hope you all had the Yuletide you wanted, and got something from that time whether you were knee deep in visitors and turkey, or had some nurturing time just for you. Mine was that mix of people and pyjamas. One day making myself presentable to the outside world, the next, snuggled up to my cats on the sofa with Netflix.
For me it was also a healing time finding myself with an imposed rest, the universe wanting me to just stay in p. j’s and in bed at one point. Hence the delay in producing this, as my brain was a little fogged! It’s back, I’m back and I’m ready to do 2019 with feeling!
I’ve some new things planned for you this year, but they are still in new moon phase, but very keen to meet you.
So once again dear Wicca Oracle souls, or ‘Wiccascopians’, let’s do this!
We’re all starting afresh, the message I asked the deck as I pulled our cards was, “What guidance do we need for this year, and what card is our foundation card to kick the year off with?”
We are all sharing our first activity of the year! Like sharing a toast, or ‘Happy New Year!” declaration. But your astrological Wiccan messages are written for you.
Violet’s S.M.A.R.T.E.R Targets
Getting Smarter about our whole lives!
Reviewable and Renewable
When we read our Wiccascopes, we do them for the most part with one question in mind, ‘So Violet that’s all very well giving me a card for the year, or to start the year off, but how the heck do I do it?’
We get S.M.A.R.T.E.R
Anyone whose been on a corporate programme of study will perhaps inwardly groan, ‘Oh SMART targets’.
But have no fear these are your own!
This is not a sales director telling you how to reach the goals they set you. It’s about you being your own boss, setting your own goals, (if you want to), and how to achieve them.
Be Specific: You will have a greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal if you set a specific goal. O.K. How?
*Who: Who is involved?
*What: What do I want to accomplish?
*Where: Identify a location.
*When: Establish a time frame.
*Which: Identify requirements and constraints.
*Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
Measurable – How are you going to gauge your progress? By date, by how you feel? How much you have earned?
How much? How many?
How will I know when it is accomplished?
Attainable – Identify goals that are most important to you, then start to work out ways you can make them happen. You can develop the attitudes, skills, and financial capacity to achieve them. Look carefully for previously overlooked chances you missed.
Plan wisely and set out a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Do not rush the process. Goals that may have seemed of reach eventually can move closer and become attainable if you go step by step, and you grow and get closer to achieving them.
Realistic- Are you hoping for a dream to come true at a set time without input from yourself. Only set a goal that you are both willing and able to work for. With help and guidance, you can get there, and of course guidance can give you timings, but you have to be part of your wishes and dreams. As do willing participants who we wish to involve in them. So, it’s a tough one this one, be honest with yourself. Is what I want, what I need, and if there is a person involved, ‘Is x on the same page as me?’
Timely – If your goal is realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished, by a set time. Another way to know if your goal is realistic is to ask if you have achieved a similar goal in the past. Or is the environment you live or work in the right place and time?
On a sensory level T can also stand for Tangible –can you taste, touch, smell, sight or hear it? This is where our spiritual links really help us.
This is the type of energy you bring to your goal setting, carrying out and achieving.
What kind of energy do you need to make things work for you? Positive!
How does that energy have to be released? Balanced and gently.
What direction does the spiral have to spin in? Clockwise.
What do we need to do to ensure we do this? Nurture, rest, and reset the chakras.
Working with the seasons, and cycles, don’t just plough on with your goals regardless, blind to the will of others, interference with the outside world, then wonder why you hit a brick wall. Stop every now and then, take note of when you get tired, or people shut down on you, or shut you down. If something isn’t working, change it. If the goal isn’t working, and you’ve sincerely tried everything. Change it. The heart of it doesn’t have to change, but the intention behind may have to.
There’s a saying that a higher goal is easier to achieve than a lower goal, because of the reward gained from hard work, makes a dream more magical. I agree to a certain extent, but I feel we have to be honest with ourselves, as chasing a dream or goal that is if we were really honest, for whatever reason, unachievable, we could burn ourselves out and feel embittered by the process. That said, only you know what is honestly achievable, and many have defied the odds in reaching for the moon and stars.
But make this fun and enjoyable above all else. A colleague of mine has a monthly mood board, another one a tarot diary, you can be as creative as you wish, for these are no ordinary targets, they are your own unique goals, for your practical and materialistic needs, and your inner most sacred spiritual needs.
SPIDER – ‘I WILL’ “I will succeed”, “I will manifest”, “I will create my desires”.
Energy Focus – Solar plexus chakra
Theme – Repetitions, self-determination, self-expression
Capricorn! Very warm welcome, you are first in the queue now, at the beginning of our year together! May it be a good one for you. And how appropriate that you have this card, and our activity is do work on our SMARTER goals! Show us the way Capricorn the leader.
Now Capricorn what happens when you meet a spider, do you?
1) Gather it up in a receptacle or your hands and safely pop it back outside, setting it free to roam once again back in nature?
2) Kill it, by stamping on it or flushing it away?
3) Feel too scared and find yourself unable to deal with it?
4) Let it be, live and let live in your house, do you quite like them or keep one as a pet?
I love spiders, and often watch them at work, tirelessly spinning and weaving their webs around the corners of my ceilings, and admit I only get rid of an old web, with no spider staking a claim to it.
But I do understand they strike fear into many hearts. This is based on 10th century thinking that spiders brought with them illness and disease, and for something so small in some cases to have such a potent, venomous bit, a more genuine and understandable threat. Hence like a lot of creatures, we have an innate response to respond with fear when we see them. It is a survival instinct.
Now imagine you are the spider or you have a very friendly one helping you at the moment. A spider as your familiar?
It can be any kind of spider. I imagine I am tiny but mighty, and able to pack the punch of a bee sting bite if needed. And my web is discreet and not bothering anyone, my job is just to eat flies, and wander around designing my lovely webs, to be admired.
What is your web like? Is it the same web you’ve been weaving since the dawn of your time? What patterns or designs do you need to weave? Are you going around in circles, wanting to succeed but ending up in the same place, then starting all over again?
Speaking of webs, in wiccan terms, linking into Viking and Norse belief the Web of Wyrd is, “The formation place of things that will come to pass”. The Web of Wyrd was the formation place of fates. They believed that the Norns, held the fates of all beings in the cosmos, had the job of weaving the fates of all beings into the Web of Wyrd.
You have in you as the spider beautiful strong silk thread to eject from your body, anywhere, any direction, to help you walk or climb away from a situation you have found you stuck in.
There are no traps now, you can spin your way to freedom. You like the Web of Wyrd have the power now to put into place your own future. This is the message of your 2019, you have this power, energy or silk in you to map out your new life design, and if you don’t like what you weave, you can change it as you go.
Spin a new web that can house your new ideas, dreams, and allow you to lay your hatchlings of ideas, in order that you will proceed forward and onwards in your life.
Peaks – Oh the joys of spinning your own reality into threads, and plans and dreams.
Troughs – Beware others who may come along and sabotage your path, or web, with their words or actions.
SHEKINAH QUEEN OF THE STARS – Transcendence
Energy vibration – Earthly angelic realm
Theme –Movement, faith, karmic journeys, unconditional love
Hello all Aquarius, it’s 2019! And it’s great to see you. For some Aquarius souls I know, dramatic life events have left them drained, I really hope if you felt the same, the new year’s energy will help you restore and revive yourself. I send love and healing to that effect xxx
Shekinah is perfect to aid in this, she takes you on a journey where you can cross realms, connect with ancestors, in order to find answers in the past to guide you in the now. She is the sacred home for the soul, and the feminine side of the Divine. She also has links in the Qabalistic Tree of Life, Heaven – Binah and Earth – Malkuth.
Starlight shines upon you, as radiant as the sun. In taro and oracle readings the stars stand for hopes, wishes and dreams. With the help of Shekinah, she will help you at this time to find more balance and harmony in your heart. She guides you to consider and contemplate your own spirituality, whatever your faith. In Christian terms she is known as the Lord’s bride, offering cleansing, and healing.
Associated with the sun sign Libra, she invokes justice and fairness, and she offers you peace, love and harmony at this time. If you find yourself in difficult situations where you feel you are not being heard or taken seriously, fairness and justice will be served. It is also asking you to release any negative feelings or grudges you hold, and send out universal love, for they are negative feelings that also affect you too. Take some time out to consider your own emotional and spiritual needs.
She is perfect for that time of year when you are looking at your new year resolutions or as I call it, ‘Violet’s Mood board for the year’. She will guide you into modern day thinking of S.M.A.R.T.E.R targets.
In order to do this, take some time out before the year really takes off, and find some space just for you. Where you have peace, calm, and cosiness. And just contemplate your future gently without the words, ‘I must’, replacing them with, ‘I need’.
Peaks – Dreams can come true.
Troughs – You’re not alone. It’s ok to ask for help.
The Goddess occupies a central role in a number of

Pisces a very happy new year and welcome to you. I hope you found time to rest up and do just what you wanted to do for you are about to go into 2019 all shiny and new. With a candle in your hand to light the way.
The candle heralds for you a potential time of good fortune, the opportunity for successful out comes. You are however responsible in your own actions once its light reveals what it is you need to know. An old myth is If a candle, (or group of candles) is blown out in one breath, it is a sign of good fortune. Think blowing the candles out on a birthday cake after you have made a wish. To ensure this happened and wishes or good intentions were assured, it is said in the practice of wetting the finger tips to snuff out a candle flame – develop, no doubt, in order to avoid discovering any potential signs of misfortune.
In Wiccan terms the candle is representive of Juno Lucina is a roman goddess who was invoked during childbirth to aid an easy delivery and healthy child; when worshippers called on Lucina, they let their hair loose and untied any knots in their clothing as an act of sympathetic magic, to symbolically loosen any hindrances to childbirth and allow the energy to flow.
We could use this terminology of childbirth in other areas of our life, such as creativity, or new beginnings. Very apt for the new year. As we are newly born from Yule, The Horned God’s rebirth, and go into a new year, the presence of Juno Lucia frees you up to release yourself from any people and situations that no longer serve your life purpose.
Candle flames can also be used for divination and candle magic so when you are making your plans, light a candle and ponder your wishes whilst the candle burns.
There will be indications around you that will provide information, via messages felt or seen by loved ones in spirit, visual images in dreams, words or key phrases will stand out in written document.
You are being asked to look at your life, or more your energy for it. Have you felt stressed out, is your candle burned out due to hard great demands upon you?
However, you can be sure that if you are making sacrifices, for the benefit of the greater good. Your life will shine with radiance as a result of the sacrifices you make.
Magically speaking, you are being advised to focus upon the light that you carry and to develop ways of working that help not only yourself, but also those around you.
The Candle card also points to utilizing candle magic in order to reach a great understanding. B=Trust in the source of your guidance, but do be aware that flames can burn as well as illuminate.
- Candle can therefore reveal that you may be about to burn out. Perhaps things have been getting out of control. This definitely shows that lessons need to be learned about energy management and how to improve it.
- Grounding yourself regularly will assist your current situations as will tempering the flame with rest and contemplation.
- Try to gently discover more about the way your energy works.
- What makes you tired and what enlivens you. And don’t push yourself or your desires too hard.
Peaks – Your inner light guides your way.
Troughs – Energy management is required.
Pentacle – Evocation
Energy – The elements
Keywords – Evocation, manifestation, protection
Aries Blessing to you for the new year! Recuperate, focus, and plan dear Aries, for this year see’s you doing things a little differently, and ticking some boxes you’ve had on ice for a while. If anyone can make it happen it’s you. For the Pentacle tells you to believe in yourself. You are happiest among nature, and have a yearning for old ways.
Nature is very important to you this year, it is always a very connective life force, but especially so for you this year, if you haven’t been taking part in the outside world, make sure you if you set just one goal, that you set this as one. You can bring nature closer to you by planting a wild plot in your garden, with herbs and hedgerow plants, work a little magic into your world.
Your gifts herald back to times gone by, to your past lives and enable they you live in harmony in this one. Perhaps you need to balance your energies, in order to maintain sacredness in all that you do.
This may be a good time to consider having a past life regression session. They are very powerful, and illuminating. Key events in your past will give you potentially a eureka moment, and perhaps answers to your current day situations. The significance of this happening as your base card for 2019, indicates to me that this is a key year when your past and present unite to give you all the information you need to make 2019 a key change year for you. You can refer to this card or reading, throughout the year, and it wouldn’t hurt you to keep a journal of your dreams for you will find past life messages coming to you in your sleep.
The Pentacle is worn for protection by Wiccans, and is provided for you? Do you have pentacle or a protective ambulette? It’s spiritual presence this time says you can call upon it and it will be there for you in times of need.
Also reminiscent of new year planning, Pentacle comes to you giving you strength in knowledge and courage to apply it.
Each point of the star represents an element, the uppermost point aspiring to spirit.
- Fire – Creativity, (think art, music, writing, art, singing), releasing anger, dealing with balancing and controlling the ego, compassion for yourself and others.
- Air – Connecting with others speaking and visiting them.
- Earth – Material – career and earning potential, and self-nurture, food.
- Water – Healing, emotions, our ebb and flow in relationships, love
- Spirit – Why am I here? What is my role?
- In sacred ceremonies the pentacle is associated with the earth element and I use mine candle invocations to work with earth energies.
Peaks – Be guided by your loved ones in spirit and ancestral roots.
Troughs – Difficulty in standing straight your balance of ego and power is strong, so you may need to ground yourself.
The Mirror – Perception
Energy vibration – Third eye chakra
Theme – Perception, reflection, clarity
Lovely Taurus, you are so ready for 2019! Were you first out the door gasping for fresh air and action? If you were anything like the multiples of Taureans in my life? My friends and family seem to be born under this lovely earthbound sign. The feet to my slightly dreamy Libran head. So, action is your word for this year, as well as change. People will see a very different Taurus this year, and take notice. But you will need help and guidance. Watch out world.
The mirror is here to help you see yourself and reflect. Do you like what you see, inside and out? With confidence you will change what you don’t like, and reveal more of your true nature. The next phase is reflecting a new rejuvenated, ready for anything you. Natural, honest and pure.
This may see you looking at any vices you have and moderating your excess intake, at least f or the first part of the year. Able to connect with your deeper self via all of your senses you will be calling upon your spirit guides.
This year is a time of change or revolution, not resolution, for you, bought about by situations that occur around you, or that you have found yourself creating. The fact this card remains as your foundation card for the year, means you can always go back and look in the mirror, anytime. Remembering that wiccan works very closely with nature, there are natural mirrors in your outside world, in rivers, lakes, the sea and puddles. And water is very healing and cleansing too, so the link with it being a naturally reflective surface, and purifying, is a bonus for you. Find a spot to swim in, and take in the view around you, take a photo of the landscape connecting to the water.
As you shine and reflect your true self this year, you will attract new friends and souls in to your life, this is both exciting and daunting, for it can be a little difficult to admit that some people or situations in your life may not be as you first see them. You need to reflect your true feelings in such matters, and any negative energy they may send out to you.
Your psychic energy and gut will guide you through this time.
Peaks – You see the truth.
Troughs – Be clear, honest and compassionate.
Cone of power – Energy
Chakral Energy – Solar plexus chakra
Theme – Energy, focus, concentration
Gemini, oh Gemini, and breath for the new year is here and you too can now concentrate on the day to day. Already you are planning the nicer things to do next week, the only trouble for you is, how are you going to do it? For those plans need you to be focussed and will need some energy on your part. Something you either have an excess of or very little. Like your Libran air sign friend, balance of energies is key this year. Your message for the year and support core, comes from the cone of power.
For you it means harnessing conscious energy and applying it to your projects. As it’s your key card or theme for the year, imagine I’ve built another room in your house, and it’s full of cones, all on a shelf, beautiful spiralling living cones of energy. Each one has a different job to do. All pertaining to your plans for the year.
If you ever lose focus, just go into your Chamber of Cones, take a seat, and ask for their guidance and energy. You will know which one you need at any time of asking.
I would suggest the first cone you use is the cone of replenishment and healing, to set you up for what is to come. The second may be wisdom and intuition to plan your years wisely.
Feeling energized and motivate you can use this energy for spiritual connections, maybe joining a healing group or finding likeminded friends to support you in this new time for you. The words, ‘I can’, will be said far more often than last year, along with, ‘I will’.
But take care to rest and nurture yourself, during this creative and busy time for you could soon tire. You could be noticed in your world, whether you want to be or not, by bosses, or team members who will be asking you to contribute some of that energy to them. You have a choice as to which projects and people you help. So, you can say no if you don’t want to do something.
Powerful people, energy workers can have a tendency of irritability towards arrogance, egotism and irritability, so remain grounded and compassionate.
If you need to ask for help if necessary, you have friends and people who are there to be asked.
The warning here is do not become self-absorbed during this time of the new year and your goals. Don’t be a hermit. People love you.
Peaks – Change, goals, energy
Troughs – Be strong and include those who will help to be.
Green man – Growth

Hello Cancerians! Blessed new year to you all. It’s lovely to see you here, I hope your Christmas time was full of love, and the bosom of your family if that’s where you were, was a happy place and time. Cancerians are sensitive to change, and take it very seriously. So, the new year is no small thing. Whilst your resolutions may not grandiose by some standards, they may be far more private and personal to you. And very simple goals. None the less for you, they are goals that could have left you feeling frustrated if outstanding from last year. Especially if other people were part of those plans. Well good news for you, this year’s message comes to you with the Green Man.
You are being drawn to Celtic roots with him, so if you have Celtic roots yourself, it may time for a trip to the homeland or to do your family tree. The Greenman is strongly associate with the horned god, who we know had his birthday recently, and they share very similar, simple natural values. He guards mother earth and is the gatekeeper to her secrets. Importantly for you the Green man stands for fertility and growth, and for protection of the wild.
Looking at your relationships where there are issues socially, romantically, professionally or with your own identity, you are being told this is a good time for communication, and (self) respect. This is a time of union, reunion, and growth in relationships. There may be decisions to make as to which way you need to go but however you decide it is for the best and will result in growth for you.
The Green Man stands for, facing fears, courage in self-expression. He also represents an opportunity to look at money earning potential and growth in financial areas.
Or for all genders including non-binary readers –
Your strength may be called upon, to protect those around you. You may also find yourself supervising or managing a situation, socially or professionally. Anything from planning a party, or event, perhaps heading up a work project.
It is suggested you develop deeper, more harmonious connections in relationships. You may also be focussing on your family and regain your connections with them. If you have the intention you will understand your world and the people in it much more deeply, reaping great results and movement.
On the other hand, boldness, courage, assertiveness is called for. By going forward with conviction, firmly believing in your actions, you will achieve results. If you are looking at relationships in your life, now is a time to take action, not wait for things to happen, go out and claim what you need.

Normally a very sociable sign given the choice, you do like to curl up under your tree to be left in peace sometime, to restore your energy ready for what comes next. Less connected Leo’s I hope you found this Yuletide a very peaceful time.
This year’s card the Serpent, represents creativity, and a strong life force from your base chakra. I’ll throw in a heap of wisdom too. What does this mean for you, Leo when it comes to resolving this year’s problems and issues, you will more than one interesting solution. You’ll find yourself thinking outside the box as they say. Flash bulb moments. In dire straits where you feel all is lost, a resurgence with fresh energy will come to you. You will rise up ready to deal with anything that comes your way.

Be prepared for your love life to get a little more passionate, with sexual intimacy being starred. So, if you are single expect attention and flirtations, mother nature has sprayed you with some alluring aroma.
If you are attached, those connections could become more intimate, and if your partner picks up on your signals, enjoy. In essence you will be in demand. You will find yourself generally more in touch with those you hold dear, and find yourself hugging and wanting to be near them.
Your creative side or flair will really show now, you may start a new hobby, or revisit an old one. Is this the year you write that book? Or join that band? Whatever you put your talents too, it will flow easily. And also act as an outlet for any excess energy.
Embrace this sense of vibrant vitality, apply it to your whole life, for the serpent is also very knowing, and very sharp minded.
Be brave ring the chances for the serpent guides the way to a new way of doing things.

Athame – COMMANDER OF POWER
Energy – Solar plexus chakra
Keywords – Empowerment, directions, boundaries
Virgo, hello neighbour! Happy New Year. What big plans you have! It’s your year to do it. Whatever it is. You may surprise some folk in the choice of direction you take. Nurturing projects started last year, bringing them to fruition mid-year. But one project this year see’s you fulfilling a lifelong ambition. And you won’t quite believe it. To help you do this you have Athame. I liken this to the Ace of Swords in Tarot.
Ready. Aim. Fire. For Athame is steering you blade-tip first into the outside world, strong, courageous and assured. Traditionally a double-edged white metal blade with a black handle, it represents masculine principle/energies in sacred ceremonies. Mine is used to cast circles, and much like my wands to direct the magical energies during various Wiccan rituals. But before you emerge from your home, you must prepare, and know where it is you are going with all this honed energy.
Release that which disempowers you, all the stronger for having done so. Nurture, meditate, heal, dream and build your strength up ready for your mission. and check your personal boundaries are in place and appropriate to requirements. Aspire to create the world you wish to be a part of, for you are protected.
Referring back to my analogy with Tarot’s Ace of swords, beware your words, and sharp of your tongue, for having such focus, and determination to achieve such potential could make your suffering of fools, less than usual. So, try to be kind, if others don’t appear to be on the same page, or understand your new drive or courage.

Fellow Librans, how are you? Blessed may your new year be! Well talk about peaks and troughs for this Christmas, I had the highs of discovering I actually am my inner child once more, then felt floored the next. Perhaps an overload of energy, that like a child needs to be managed better, or situations around me. How was yours? All I know is the first plan I made this year, was not to make any plans until I was ready to. Maybe our first target is to heal, restore and prepare?
We have a new card. Ciao Aradia! Who is she you ask? A somewhat beautiful and striking Italian gipsy she was Queen of Witches, in the 14th century and thought of as a daughter of the goddess Diana. It is claimed she was born in a little town in Northern Italy, called Volterra in 1313. and was influential in spreading the teachings of the old religion throughout Italy and beyond. Some consider her to have been a female avatar, who deserved to rank among such famous enlightened teachers as Christ and Buddha.
It is time to claim your true self, (remember I spoke of my inner child it’s not so far removed from aspects of that), it is your destiny. A blend of guidance from celestial beings with earthly happenings in helping you achieve your highest potential. There are rewards for your hard work so far, and you are being told don’t stop now, even if it feels difficult or hasn’t happened, just yet but please continue, for you are so close. If you have felt like an outsider, or judged as different by others, do not change to fit in, or mute those aspects of yourself, for that which makes you different, is what will help you help others.
Have more self-belief, self-confidence, and trust your gut knowing that once you focus on the path you wish to take, you will be helped. This is a time of necessary independence, that will not leave you alone feeling isolated or lonely for long.
Peaks – Now is the time to claim your birth right – success awaits.
Troughs – Review personal opinions and belief systems. Habits and prejudices will be challenged.

Well hello Scorpio, how are you? Happy New year! You will be starting your new year as it ended. Busy. Perhaps a winter holiday in January but for now there is abundance around you and plans to be made. Then you can rest and contemplate your new year.
Gaia’s message to you this year is allow time for healing, she is here to give you just that, and to remind you to reconnect with her throughout the year in times of burn out or overload. Through her you will also have the healing touch as her energy flows through you. If healing is something you have thought of developing in this light-working area, you could do worse than develop these skills. For there would be those that would benefit from this. A Reiki course or counselling role would suit your heightened connection to this lady.
By grounding yourself, and working on your root chakra, you will feel that your energy coming through your feet, like the roots of a tree, taking hold in your root chakra, giving life and energy to your other chakras.
The seeds of your dreams that maybe you thought had eluded you, have simply been taking their time germinating, and your plans and dreams will start to grow. Don’t give up on them yet! Work with moon cycles and nature, get a calendar that shows the pagan and moon cycles of the year. And your energy flow will benefit from it. Don’t force things to happen or before their time, they won’t. Patience is called for, but be assured your roots are well planted and ready to grow.
Gaia beats a drum for you step in time to, to breath in time to. Like a child nestled on their mother’s chest, in tune with her heartbeat, Gaia the god of mothers, dreams and healing holds you close now to her buxom bosom, her name literally meaning, ‘Broad -bosomed’. Your bond with your own mother, living or in the next plane, is heightened here. Heal any issues you may have if this relationship is not as you’d wish, for Gaia will help you.
Planet earth takes the esteemed name of Gaia, due to her connection with the harvesting of crops and plant life. A life-giving force. Her name is still used today as reverential term for our planet. Gaia was worshipped as Delphi, and considered the greatest of oracles. Embrace her presence in your life, for she has chosen to help you at a time when the material and modern world of today presents its challenges to you. If you have found yourself stubborn or unable to accept help and support, see help and support from others to aide you on your path, and work to heal relationships.
Peaks – Unconditional love will help you heal.
Troughs – Don’t be stubborn or too independent.
The lady – EMBODIEMENT

Happy New Year to you Sagittarius! Like your neighbour you too will have ended the year somewhat busier than you may have liked, with less emphasis on the social. Well balance is the message for you this year. Socially you will find yourself ready to face the world again.
Tired of the old, yearning the new, but what is the new? You are not recognisable as yourself as you started 2018, and although you found this challenging and upsetting at times.
Please know it was necessary to help you with your transition and development. All you have to do is believe in the version of yourself you want to be and it will happen. Easier said than done, but self-conviction and honesty with yourself will create a less painful path to your success.
You have an inner and outer self, that were competing with each other, the inner being right but perhaps ego-centric, the outer rejecting the simple honest truth of yourself, and being too willing to compromise to form an acceptable version of yourself to present to others. These elements of yourself do not need to compete but blend and balance to create a settle, comfortable, fresh and genuine you. Now you can unite both parts of yourself, and say loudly, ‘I am me!’
So, who is she, she is Lady Isis in Egypt, the High Priestess in tarot. Here to steer you through your life this time, protecting and guarding you the same time. The Lady rings the changes for you, has your mood changed significantly. She is keeping a watchful eye over you and can be called upon for help when you need her. My love of ancient Egypt means I work a lot with Lady Isis, her energy is so strong, and healing. And because of her link to the sun, there is an inner solar heat source that you can tap into when you need it. Try an Isis meditation.
Energy shifts, emotional developments and break throughs are abounding. Feeling routed to the ground, yet connected to the divine you are able to speak and act for yourself from a place of strength.
You are a force of nature, and your words and actions will have power too. Beware how you use them, for they have consequences too.
If you don’t like how things are you now have the ability to bring about the changes needed in your world. Take this time to ensure that the path you are on, your life as it is, the direction of life is all that you want it. For the lady guides you throughout this year in an earthbound, honest, and courageous way.
