The Moral Of The Story Is: “Good omens. Good luck and good fortune. Bright prospects. Persevere in your goal. Believe in yourself.”

Shooting Star: “Feeling a sense of relief and optimism through the camaraderie of kindred spirits who have welcomed them into their makeshift camp, the Seeker makes their way through painted caravans to find their sleeping quarters. Under the silent witness of the golden moon, a shooting star bursts into life, scattering silver trails as if it falls from the sky. The Seeker catches a glimpse of its brief but radiant passage, feeling heartened that the omen bodes well for the future.”

Card Definition: “Shooting Star is a card of good omens and indicates bright prospects ahead. It encourages you to believe in yourself and to persevere with goals and dreams. Whilst The Dreamcatchers acts like a protective amulet, the Shooting Star is a card that foretells good fortune.

A shooting star is a meteoroid and, if it survives the impact with Earth’s atmosphere, the resulting stone is a meteorite, much revered by ancient civilizations for their magical properties as a heavenly gift. Our fascination with the stars goes back thousands of years, so they often feature in legends, perhaps best known through Greek mythology.

In the starlit sky, a shooting star stands out against the rest, so, in the right circumstances, it may also indicates fame. As one of the most positive cards in the deck, it represents good luck and good fortune.”*

Happy December… the last 31 days of 2017. We are starting off this month with a blessing of luck and good fortune…. but it all hinges on our ability to receive it. Do not step into this magical month with worries about stress, family, finances and the overburden of the holiday season. If this is how you normally see December, then it is up to you to create something different… and to step into the flow of it.

December is my month. I’m a Sagittarius. Forever optimistic and adventurous… although I often feel more than a little stagnant these days while deeply immersed in routine! However, to me, December has always had so much sparkle to it. The lights go up. People are happy, socializing and dressing up. There is a certain anticipation to the month. And I am determined to keep that going, even as a single mother. I could make it into something stressful and overwhelming. I could focus on the extra money spent, the expectations. But I refuse to think of my favourite month in this way. I ask for more than that. What else is possible? What can I create with this? I’m pretty organized too, I’ve been stashing stuff away for weeks now because I knew that I wanted to greet this month with arms, heart and mind wide open and welcome all it has to offer. And this is not due to any particular religious beliefs… Christmas is what it is to everyone, whether Christian or not, I do feel that December is a special month, the energies of the year culminating to make something magical to take us into the fast approaching new year.

Today we start this sparkly month with a positive omen which will be carried through the weekend. Good luck and good fortune. A little extra magic. Warmth, abundance and the promise of the full moon energies to amplify it all. I read the astrology, and I have to say, each new moon and full moon this year has held such powerful energy. Lessons deep and karmic. This one is in Gemini, the sign of polarities… the mind that could change on a whim. Or, if both aspects are brought together, Gemini balanced can be a most powerful creator. Which one do you choose? Which energy will you work with?

Mercury is still on our side for another day or two, then will go retrograde, which I have to say I find far less scary and annoying to me these days. It’s more about introspection, inner work and standing our ground through the storm and chaos around us. If we know what we want and we are willing to stick to our guns, Mercury cannot throw us off course and we can giggle at the little ups and downs it brings as it throws our technology for a loop, sets communication off course and forces us to be crystal clear in our focus.

Meet this month with anticipation of something new. An opportunity to move forward into the new year victorious. Know that the opportunity before you is the right one, be bold and make your move. Good fortune awaits you.

Namaste

Joy, Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco: Joy

Joy: Rejoicing in the present.”

I stand here,

I am where I am,

Fully alive and present

Stress is a sham.

“Besides the “Hooooo” of a not so scary trick or treating ghost on Halloween evening, one of the most common sounds you will hear is laughter. There is so much joy at Halloween and it can be one of the most fun nights of the year if we allow that into our lives.

We lead busy lives: whether we are studying, run a household, have a demanding job or all of them at once, it seems there is little time for us to stop, be present and enjoy exactly where we are at this time. It has been said that the first step of real change is stopping and acknowledging that we actually need this change. Whilst sometimes we might feel that there is little to feel happy about and much to change, we can always feel grateful for something right now and there is power in that position.

It is time to find the joy in this moment and to find that joy more often. Should this card come up in your divination, it heralds the arrival of more happiness and profound joy into your life. It is a good omen!

Actively seek pleasure and build more of the things that give you personal joy and laughter in your life. After all, we build in appointments for the dentist, why not for our own pleasure?”*

Ok, so I have to say that the look on this woman’s face isn’t exactly rapturous joy, but yet there is something serene about her and the fact that she is surrounded by large maple leaves that make her look like she is sporting large angel wings makes up for it all!

This is a recurring theme… finding joy, scheduling in me-time, planting ourselves in the present and enjoying all that life has to offer. This is another reminder to make time every day to do something that you love, to surround yourself with loving and supporting people and to carve away a few of the responsibilities and obligations that are causing you stress.

Halloween is a reminder to make it fun! Trick or treating is such a big deal in our house (although I have a habit of throwing away all the terrible junk they get after, so this year, as they are totally on to me, we are trading for a toy instead!!). But it’s not about the candy, it’s about the overall experience: choosing the perfect costume and spending the time and attention to detail getting ready; it’s about socializing with the neighbours (well for us it is as we are in a pretty rural area and know many of our neighbours over the years); and about accumulating a booty of enormous, sugary proportions! I know that not everyone feels this way, that people see it as a night of vandalism and scary costumes, but if you have a little fun with it you can change your perspective!

Regardless of Halloween, this is just another gentle reminder to find joy every day in a way that is yours. Find your passion and schedule in some time to enjoy partaking in it, no guilt, no shame, no compromise.

Just joy.

Namaste
