Thanksgiving Day Holiday

Without going back to the history of the first Thanksgiving held by the Pilgrims and Native Americans, it wasn’t until 1817 that New York became one of the first states to officially adopt Thanksgiving as an annual holiday. Many other states followed suit but all celebrated on different days.

President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863, supposedly as a response to a campaign organized by magazine editor Sara Joseph Hale. In 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving Day forward one week, as it is presently celebrated.

On November 10, 1947, President Harry Truman received a live turkey from the National Turkey Federation in what has become an annual White House Thanksgiving tradition.  The White House Presentation signals the beginning of the holiday season of national thanks, historically representing agriculture’s bountiful harvest. The presentation also highlights the contributions of America’s turkey growers as well as the important role of agriculture in modern America.

Older than our nation itself is the custom of resting from our labors for one day at harvest time and of dedicating that day to gratitude to the Almighty God for the many blessings which He has heaped upon us. Now, as the cycle of the year nears completion, it is fitting that we should lift up our hearts again in special prayers.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19

This seems like a really fun, creative and positive time for you.  Don’t run yourself ragged.  Creativity, home DIY projects as well as helping children with their school projects can also keep you occupied.  You see much potential in your home and you want to do many things by yourself.  It’s sort of calming therapy for you where you can think clearly and not feel pressured.  However, you will get much done and be so proud of your accomplishments. Don’t let things get out of hand around the holidays.  Time to reflect, write, communicate your feelings with family and loved ones.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Take life nice and easy. Read, go to work or telecommute, and catch up on TV shows.  Any possible medical procedures you need or have been putting off should be taken care of as soon as possible so there are no complications in the future. Changes in the way you act and interact with those you love are possible.  Your patience level is very low at this time.  Try to go with the flow.  Thinking also changes as you are interested in so many different areas now.  Expand your mind; learn what you can.  Home life improves and you feel as if you are going to have a wonderful month and Thanksgiving holiday.  Many pleasant surprises seem to be in your future, so be prepared to graciously accept what others want to offer.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 21

Getting you out of the house is an issue.  You want to visit friends and family, but you are involved in too many different projects to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Perhaps, join a small group in an area of interest and meet new friends. Life seems to be getting back on track, but with the holidays just around the corner, you may get overwhelmed again.  Sit back, relax and do what you absolutely have to do for any particular day or situation.  Love life may be a little difficult, mainly because other things have your attention.  Finish those projects, get your house in order, and be sure to know what you really want out of life. 

CANCER – June 22 – July 22

Do not overlook any potential partners that may have loved you for some time but you didn’t notice.  This is an outstanding time for discussion, compromise and seeing each other’s points of view.  It is a time where you will turn into best friends and truly understand each other on a new spiritual level.  Thoughts and long discussions will be shared in a most loving and thoughtful way.  You are extremely sensitive now so be sure that you don’t take too many things personally as the other person probably didn’t even know you were offended or hurt by the comment.  Prepare your lovely Thanksgiving feast, but give yourself time to get everything done on a schedule so you don’t get inundated with non-essential busy work.

LEO – July 23 – August 22

You are doing a fine job considering “the times we are living through.”  Perhaps an interest in Zoom classes or attending seminars would help get you out of some disheartening days this month.  Don’t let others bring you down.  Thinking of continuing a career or starting a new home-based business sounds very reasonable and profitable. You want to be in a relationship, but you also want the flexibility to do whatever you want to do when you want to do it.  Or you may also find challenges in a current relationship, something you have to figure out on your own. You have great confidence in yourself, but you may seek another’s approval.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

You need to loosen up a little and have some fun.  Emotions are thwarted now, so try not to be sarcastic or harsh with anyone, especially at work, or it may come back to haunt you.  During the start of the holiday season, be sure that you have taken care of mundane tasks so they you won’t be thinking about them.  Update important papers such as wills, insurance policies, living wills, etc. Try to stray out of your “safety zone” and explore what else is out there for you.  Then you will be ready to enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends no matter where the holiday conversations take you.  You will be ready to be witty and funny and have an extraordinary time.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 23

Friends are important now so be sure to keep the lines of communication open between them.  You may also be thinking of taking care of paperwork and getting boring chores done and behind you before the festivities start at the end of the month.  Organize a list of what you want to get done and then follow the list.  This is such a lucky time for you, so it would be advantageous to get everything you wanted done finished, so you will have time for fun. If you have invited family and friends to your house for Thanksgiving, prepare the list of chores and food shopping ahead of time and do it over several days’ time so you will not have to rushed and feel exhausted. 

SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22

You may feel insecure about many things, but sadness, depression, or insecurity keeps you at home or on the computer, phone or iPad.  Go out and explore, even if it’s on your own.  Thinking negatively is not going to bring you any opportunities or positive choices.  You need positive energy around you, so try to lighten up. Travel plans seem to be in your future, or at the very least you are trying to convince yourself whether or not you can afford to take a trip during this holiday season.  You are strong and determined; those attributes will help you make important decisions on the job especially when giving out new projects.  You know employees’ minds are on the holidays and not particularly concentrating on new projects and budgets.

SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21

This is a great time to find out what it is you’ve missed this past year and a half and try to do it.  Travel is fun, even if it’s a weekend getaway.  It does seem as if you are trying to save a bit of money; however, you’re secure.  Don’t be extravagant, but be sure to see family and friends.  It will bring joy to them and to yourself!  Work is going well although there is a lot of hard work ahead of you, but you can certainly handle it well.  You may be your own worst enemy at this time.  Do what you can and let other things go.  Self-confidence issues may arise.  It’s not you, but the overwhelming issues that are swarming around you.  Handle one issue at time and you’ll be fine.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

You seem to be getting organized and ready to rejoin humanity.  Writing, short distance travel, computers and family can give you hours of fun and creativity.  Even if unexpected things happen, they will be for the best.  You find it hard to be spontaneous so the universe seems to need to give you a push on to a new path.  You have to figure out what is the most important issue and do something positive to resolve it.  Many thoughts are leaning towards secrets and keeping things to yourself.  There is little time to read; however, you may be able to get few audio books to play in the car. Have the holiday you want and don’t give into the pressure of doing something that was not your vision of the perfect holiday.

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18

Work may be causing you too much stress, so you should take a few personal or vacation days and relax.  Things don’t seem to be going on the right track and you are helping others with their issues rather than facing your own.  You may feel a bit overcome or depressed as the holidays progress, so get out of that frame of mind now so you can be happy and ready to share the fun season with your family and friends. You are making more decisions about yourself and what you want to do now.  Getting your home ready for the holidays is a big task, and you make it a magical place every year for the family.  Life will flow nicely and you will accomplish all you wish.

PISCES – February 19 – March 20

Home life has been busy, but it is calming down.  You feel that something in your home has to change.  Be creative, innovative, inventive, and original so that you will change your outlook to a positive one.  You could be redecorating the house, getting new furniture, new rugs or maybe even a new computer. You will be ahead of the game by doing everything now so that when the holidays roll around, you will be finished with your goals. Be careful about overspending during the holidays.  You have enough saved to do the shopping you want; however, be sure you stay within your budget.  The size or amount of the gift doesn’t really matter.  You’ve heard it a million times, but it is the thought that counts.

September 2021 Horoscopes

By Vikki Anderson

Important Dates: September5th, Teachers’ Day; 6th, Labor Day; 11th, Patriot Day; September 15-October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month; 16th World Ozone Day and International Day for Preservation; 22nd, Rose Day (welfare of cancer patients); and the 29th, International Heart Day.  Look up a particular month’s list of holidays on line.  I just picked out a few of the choices.  There are so many that I’m sure we never even heard of!

Spirit Energy in Trees

Trees have very special spirits and should be considered as intelligent energy fields and not just trees. Ancient myths spoke of Oak Tree spirits or entities that guarded the person living on the property. Being I had 48 red oaks on my property, and I felt very blessed and protected.

Plant trees on your property for good chi (or positive energy). Keep them pruned and healthy. Many nurseries can tell you which birds inhabit specific trees, so if you want to attract more wildlife into your yard or area, consult a professional. Otherwise, any tree can be a home to a host of birds who live in this part of the country or who are passing through on their way to migratory destinations. Birds always bring positive energy to your home, so feed them frequently and keep clean water in a bird bath that they can use each day. The fluttering of their wings moves the stagnant negative energy that may be on your property. Also, remember chimes or windsocks are a good remedy to promote healthy chi as well.

Live plants, flowers and trees are fundamental to good Feng Shui. The prettier the plant or flower, the nicer the energy that flows towards your home and family. Be mindful of the flower colors you chose for each area of your yard. Following the bagua’s suggestion of color is always helpful and preferred. If this is impossible to do, especially with varied bulbs, put them in a bucket and mix them up and plant them all over the yard.  In this way, your yard will be protected by all the colors of the bagua. In this way, you have many colors in all areas in your yard. There are many good sales for greenery at this time of the year; perhaps you should look at what is available.

Be mindful that trees or high bushes should not be in a direct line with your front door as it keeps opportunities and prospects from ever reaching your home.  And, the more color you place around the yard, the more in tune you will be with Feng Shui and Mother Nature.  Don’t forget the bird bath in line with your front door.  In Feng Shui, water is money.  Every time you open the front door, the financial “intention” is activated.  Always a welcomed visitor to our homes.

We can only control how we react to situations.  So, try to look at the positive side of life as many these Rxs will be with us until February, 2022.)
Sun goes into Virgo on August 23.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19

Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together. If you handle limitations, responsibilities and obligations will only be resolved IF you use your logic and intelligence. Your friends will back you up with any of your decisions. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the dreadful past year behind and are ready for new adventures and possibly a small getaway. You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems as they want to give you, their support.  Take it.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

You are doing what you can to make financial situations in these areas as positive as possible; worrying won’t change anything. There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move.  Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings and you don’t trust too many people with your emotions.  Chose someone to confide in so that you will be sharing your burdens or at least get another perspective to your issues.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 21

Training and formal education is highlighted including metaphysical subjects or any area of interest.  You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction to go. Expanding your business and networking is always a good idea. (As one teacher used to say, “Is your net working?”) There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to help with your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies.  Yes, we all get tired, but if you schedule room in your busy life for the theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special events, etc., you will be able to decide things with a clearer mind and goals that are very attainable.

CANCER – June 22 – July 22

Time to make good choices.  You will then see how fast you progress on the right path of prosperity and opportunities. You attract many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions in life, business and family.  Even though you may have to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation. 

LEO – July 23 – August 22

There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are activities that you wish to participate in. You have so much to accomplish, but may be planning to do it all later since the nice weather is upon us.  Do one or two things daily to get ahead of your responsibilities faster and you will see how much you have accomplished by the end of the week. You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative way and may also be bringing that energy in to your romantic life, so just enjoy.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Many decisions need to be made, so think about them carefully before deciding those important decisions.  Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan.  Friends are important now, so make sure you know who your true friends are. Weeding out those who exhaust you would be in your best interest. One of the lessons you should learn now is that friends will give you reciprocal energy and help you whenever you need assistance rather than always taking from you. You will be setting up more boundaries and limitations from being taken advantage of from others.  Bravo.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 23

Thinking in a chaotic way will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things to please others. Be strong and stand up for yourself. Being decisive will be extremely important. Even though you do not have an easy time making decisions, it is imperative that you stop procrastinating and make important decisions about your life and those close to you. Be assertive, take risks and move forward. Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible.  Pick a direction and stay the course.

SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22

There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly. Finances may be strained or you are saving for an object or project that is very important to you.  Nevertheless, you should budget your money carefully and only spend what you deem appropriate for the things you want.  Being very determined and persistent will help you get what you want, but you really have to be serious about your wishes.  Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21

You have so many good intentions and plans that may be thwarted on some level.  You seem to have so many responsibilities and obligations, but once you handle these situations, you will have more time to concentrate on your leisure time activities and fun.  Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life.  It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on.  Some areas of change may be your job, moving from your home to a new location, and perhaps finding new partners if that’s what you want.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

Home and business life needs more balance. Your job and its problems should be kept at the workplace so when you come home, you can spend more time with your family or romantic partner. They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives.  Home life and family can be challenging and there is just so much going on that it makes you a bit confused about your next steps. Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work projects, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy. 

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18

Career choices and home life seem to be at odds again.  You’ve taken on too many responsibilities and your health may suffer if you don’t get the relaxation needed. A bit more rest and relaxation will do wonders for your stamina and general overall health.  Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property.  You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now.  You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is. 

PISCES – February 19 – March 20

Love life can make you crazy if you let it, but if you use your intellect and common sense you will be able to handle anything that comes your way.  Be very clear about your intent and let people know that you want to quickly resolve any unfinished business. Many changes seem to follow you around and you’re not quite sure what to do. Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change.  Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

August 2021 Horoscopes

By Vikki Anderson

Spirit Energy in Trees

Once upon a time, I had a lovely 50′ tall Japanese Red Maple tree in front of my house for over 28 years. Unfortunately, it died from a beetle infestation and had to be removed. I was really sad that the tree could not be saved and then felt that the energy in the front yard was somehow changed or depleted. I couldn’t quite understand why the energy was different, but it was. It felt lifeless, cold and stagnant.

Talking to some energy tree experts, I discovered I was correct. When trees are removed from your property (forest, etc.), you should ask the tree spirit to leave all of its energy in the ground, thus on your property. I was unaware of this so never asked the tree to leave its spirit or essence behind and now it is lost; that seemed to be the energy fluctuation I had felt for almost a year until it was replaced by other flowers and trees I had subsequently planted.

Then a miracle happened. A few saplings started to sprout in the front yard, just little tiny 1″ sprouts, that had come from the mother tree. I had collected them for two years and placed them in a large planter; then they still surprised me by occasionally popped up on my property after all of this time. I am especially proud of the 2 stronger saplings which are now 1′ high each. I had transplanted them in the front yard and then worried if one of them was too close to my house, not only it’s physical presence but also from a Feng Shui point of view. I was assured by many that Japanese Maples take many, many years to grow and that most of my yard that I would be fossilized before I had to worry about this 1′ tree taking over the front lawn. I also planted it askew to the front door so it would allow energy to flow into the house every time I open the front door (apparently as it will for a very long time period until it grows!).

Normally, trees blocking the front entrance are not preferred and definitely is not good Feng Shui. One wants a flowing energy pattern that can enter the house without obstacles in the way, such as large trees or bushes in line with the front door.

I had also put two ads on Craigslist to remove some day lilies and yucca plants as I was clearing out those two gardens (one was going to be home to the smaller Japanese Maple Tree) and within a half of an hour of putting up the ad, I had people in my yard digging up the plants and carting them away on Memorial Day! That goes to show you that many people are looking to adorn their property with various forms of greenery but also that FREE is a great price. So, if you want to move some plants or trees from your property, or maybe acquire some, check out that site. It’s helped me a lot and it’s free or nominal to advertise.

‘ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Emotions are strong now and you seem so sensitive; however, everything is really not about you. No one is out to get you and just need to calm down and see the real issue in front of you. Your friends are there to back you up with any decision you make. But be sure to think things through carefully before making major decisions. Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together. Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you are using your intelligence (and not emotions) to talk things through and compromise in many areas. Your friends will back you up with any decision you make. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the hum-drum past behind and are ready for new adventures and lots of fun. It would be nice to invite friends and family members to join you so you can get to know them better. You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems like time to accept their helpful hints and suggestions to get you back on the right track.

’TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Dealing with budget issues as well as your career may be somewhat confusing and stressful, so this would be a great time to relax. So much time has gone by without seeing loved ones, so get your Covid19 shot(s) so you can partake in any crowd-type activity. You are doing what you can to make the situations in these areas as positive as possible, but your worry keeps you rehashing old issues. You seem to be dealing with so many financial decisions. Should you spend or should you save? Should you move or stay where you are? Do you really want to take that risk? There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move. Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused over issues with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings easily as you don’t trust too many people in your life with your emotions. Getting others involved in your confusion will not help you make the much-needed decisions for the best of all involved. You need to talk to someone about your concerns, perhaps even a professional to get an unbiased look at your situation and options.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 21

This is a wonderful time to get more training or formal education. You can also study about new and interesting traditions and philosophies. Even though you have many projects to start and complete, it does seem to be a wonderful time to take a few classes to expand your expertise in an area of interest and learn all that you can. Travel is indicated if you are willing and financially able; if not, you can have smaller day trips to local parks or events that are free or very reasonable. The point is you must get out amongst people again.  You may have gotten a bit too comfortable in your own company. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction you should go. Expanding your business is always a good idea especially since Covid work issues, there seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies. My advice is to give “your all” at work and in your personal life. Yes, we do get tired, but if you schedule theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special event, etc., to fit into your busy life with your closest friends and family, (or a specific date night with your romantic partner), you will start to mellow out and things will become much easier for you to handle. You will look forward to this relaxing time. Be a little more tolerant of your significant other or business partners. You seem to be uptight or annoyed about many things and you wouldn’t want to take out your frustration on those closest to you.

”CANCER – June 22 – July 22

Many new opportunities will be given to you so if you know what you want, it will be easier to grab the opportunity once it is presented to you. Also, changes are coming your way and you should be prepared to make many good choices. See whichever opportunities make the most common sense and check them out. As long as they seem appropriate, take them as you will be surprised at how fast you will be on the right road to a prosperous future while attracting more new energy and opportunities. Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve, however, be careful not to spend too much time at work and spend quality time with those important to you. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. Your finances seem to continue to be prosperous as you may get involved in other business ventures (including part time or a home-based business) and you seem to be on the right track. Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it! You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions. Even though you may start to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation. Procrastination will make things worse!

•LEO – July 23 – August 22

Time to rise and shine. You have so much to accomplish, but may be planning to do it all later since the nice weather is upon us. Do one or two things daily so at the end of the week or month, you can see that you have accomplished much and will not feel guilty about taking off a day or two to relax and have fun. You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative or innovative mode now and may be bringing that energy to your romantic life, so just enjoy. There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are summer time activities around you that you wish to participate in. Don’t over think things now as everything will work out for the best in a very short period of time. Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long-needed vacation. Even though there may be some delays or paper related mix-ups, it does seem to bring you the fun and relaxation you need. It is important for you to get out of the house to have fun with your friends and to mingle with those who are in your business, charities and peer associations or groups. You have much energy around you, but you seem to need a cosmic kick in the pants to get moving in the right direction. 

–VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Friends are important now, so make sure you know who your true friends are. One of the lessons you should learn now is that friends will give you reciprocal energy and help you whenever you need assistance rather than you always be the one to help others. Weeding out those who exhaust you would be in your best interest. Many decisions need to be made, so think about them carefully before making those important decisions. Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan. Changes in work also seem to be imminent. Have you decided which road or path you will take? This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and home with those important to you so that you are clearly understood. Your messages just do not seem to be getting through properly. Money may be of concern now, however, you seem to be blessed and will be able to do well once you set your mind on your goals and objectives. You seem very sensitive and are confused about your romantic relationship. You may want to try to have a meaningful communication with your romantic significant to deal with issues you may have. Home life may seem somewhat unstable, so do whatever you can to make it secure again. If changes are inevitable, at least you can calmly discuss them and decide what is in both of your best interest before reacting to circumstances around you without a plan.

—LIBRA – September 23 – October 23

Your decisiveness will be challenged. Even though you do not have an easy time making decisions, it is imperative that you stop procrastinating and make important decisions about your life and those close to you. Be assertive, take the risk and move forward. Staying in a procrastination energy field will only attract more negativity and make you feel as if you don’t have any options left. Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible. If you truly do not want to help others at this time, why are you doing it? This seems to be a good time for you to take care of yourself, your family and your desires and not think about anyone else who wants you to change. Be wary of deception in a relationship and make sure you can verify whatever he or she is telling you, so that you won’t be hurt in the future. You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest and truthful as you, so you would be best not to take everyone at their word without question. Foreign travel, higher education or lectures and classes seem to help you grow in so many ways. You are a sponge for information now so should use the energy around you to make the most of it. Thinking in a confused, depressed or anxious manner will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things his or her way. Be strong and stand up for yourself.

˜SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22


Finances may be strained or you are saving for an object or project that is very important to you. Nevertheless, you should budget your money carefully and only spend what you deem appropriate for the things you want. Being very determined and persistent will help you get what you want, but you really have to be serious about your wishes. So many issues seem to be coming up around your financial security and it may seem overwhelming. There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly. This is a time to chill as you have been handling much too many responsibilities lately and would just like everyone to leave you alone; however, that is not going to happen. Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend? Make time for yourself as this will be the only thing that will help you attain your optimistic attitude once again. Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members. Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step. Your helping attitude is a wonderful gift to others, but now it would be good for you to give the gift of fun, relaxation, and happiness to yourself.

™SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21

Family issues keep you in a constant state of flux. You have so many good intentions and plans that may be thwarted on some level. You seem to have to take care of many responsibilities and obligations, but once you handle these situations now, you will have more time to concentrate on your leisure time activities and fun. Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, business, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life. It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on; finally, do whatever it is you feel you’ve always wanted to do. This is risky; however, it seems as if you want a total change of your surroundings and people in your life. Some areas of change could be your job, moving from your comfortable home to a new location, seeking new partners (or if not married, finally find a marriage partner) and changing your appearance in some fashion. Friends will help you through the rough spots and be available to chat with you about your concerns; they are ready to help you, so allow them to assist you as you have helped them so many times in the past. This would be a great time to use your tactfulness as you may be tempted to say exactly what you mean and then you’ll be in trouble, AGAIN.

šCAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

Home life and family can be challenging and there is just so much going on that it makes you a bit confused about your next steps. Should you let others handle their issues or should you get involved? That’s a good question. Does it make sense for you to try to handle more responsibilities or do you feel that others should take the responsibility for their action? Home and business life needs more balance. Work should be kept at the office (or wherever you are employed) and when you come home, that time belongs to your significant other and family. More quality time seems necessary with those you love. They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives. Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy. Don’t be too tight with your money as you will have it when you need it and you may deprive someone close to you of a simple pleasure that a small amount of money could bring them. Have fun and lighten up! I know you have tons of hard work ahead of you, but if you bring more balance in to your home life and career, things seem to go in a much stronger direction.

›AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18

Career choices and home life seem to be at odds again. You have too much to do in both areas of life and your health seems to be suffering. A bit more rest and relaxation will do wonders for your stamina and general overall health. Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property. You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now. Why not try a small water fountain in your home, or if you can afford it, in your yard where you can relax and/or meditate to the peaceful sounds of the running water? You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is. Romantic complications or confusion still worry you. You are trying to find a happy medium between balancing your life with work and family. You also seem to want to do things on your own; however, there just isn’t enough time. Make time for yourself. Your energy level is drained and you seem to be handling all of the worries, doubts, fears and concerns of not only yourself, but of everyone else who can grab a minute of your time. You need some down time away from everyone else’s problems; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

œPISCES – February 19 – March 20

Love life can make you crazy if you let it, but if you use your intellect and common sense you will be able to handle anything that comes your way. Be very clear about your intent and let people know that you want to resolve any unfinished business quickly. Many changes seem to follow you around and you’re not quite sure what to do. Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change. Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life. It’s fun to be with family and friends at times, but you must try to figure out what would make you really happy. Finances seem to be one area of life that will be improving so keep saving for that special purchase as your money grows. A change in career or direction seems likely as if work is not what it used to be. Don’t make rash decisions as if you do not weigh the consequences of your decisions, you may be disappointed in the results. Emotions seem fragile at this time, so try to deal with issues on a more analytical level so that you won’t be easily hurt.

Feng Shui for Spring

Spring is a wonderful time to start cleaning out the yard, opening up the windows and letting the new fresh air of spring inside of your home and life.

With the new energy of the season, it is important to clear out the old stale energy from the winter and breathe new life into your environment.

Here are a few ways to bring positive energy into your yard and home.

Put up a small birdbath or a water fountain directly opposite your front door so each time you open your door, you are inviting in prosperity and abundance.  Water represents money in Feng Shui.

  • Hang beautiful chimes from trees, your deck, or house gutters for a melodious sound to relax and calm you.
  • Hang up whirl-i-gigs to promote positive chi to circulate around your property and remove any stagnant areas of dead or dying chi from the previous harsh winter.
  • Plant bulbs, annuals, perennials in bright colors.  To correctly place the right color in the right area of your yard or garden, follow the bagua colors.
  • Burn white sage throughout your home, closets, bathroom, cellar, attic and around the house to ensure negative energy or negative chi is removed while keeping your windows open to allow the negativity to escape from your environment.
  • Place 60 MM aurora borealis crystals in windows that get the morning sun so that rainbows will dance on your ceiling and walls.  Each room should have many colors in it for balanced positive energy.
  • Get rid of things you no longer need, want or like, so that you will have a clutter-free space to enjoy and come home to each evening without feeling overwhelmed by the clutter.
  • A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your space and your mood.  Choose the proper color for the area of the bagua you are painting; if you can’t, add a few decorative touches like pillows, books, candle holders, statues or paintings with the required colors in them.
  • Let the sunlight into your home.  Put up sheer curtains or pleated shades that can be opened from the top or bottom so you can maximize the sunlight and feel re-energized.
  • Purchase a few Himalayan salt lamps, candle holders or prosperity bowls so their medicinal powers (helps with allergies, headaches, insomnia, depression

You are probably doing many of these things with your annual spring cleaning, but I just wanted to remind you that changing a small thing can bring in much abundance, happiness and good health into you and your family’s lives.  Happy Spring.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19

Thoughts of traveling or at the very least getting out of the house regularly is on your mind.  There is a lot of good luck following you around this month, so whatever it is you’ve wanted to accomplish, start or finish, this is the time to stop procrastinating and do it.  You might be a little prone to disagreements and quarrels with friends, so be sure not to make things innocently said start you on the war path. Emotions may be unbalanced and/or you may be super sensitive at this time, so it would be best just to ignore others who are making you feel uncomfortable in some way. You are becoming more practical and logical in making decisions and if unexpected issues happen, you will be able to beautifully cope with them.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

You’re thinking of career plans and perhaps if staying at home to work is the best choice for you at this moment. This is a time where you are thinking of so many plans, things that could be, things that haven’t manifested yet, things you could be doing, etc.  However, your overall mood is more of independence and taking control over your own life.  So, this is the time to do it.  You are in a romantic and intellectual phase.  Vitality is becoming an important part of your life since you have to make others understand that this is a time for you to be accomplishing a lot and you are ready for the challenge.  Unexpected incidents may not be a stumbling block, but an opportunity to move ahead and move yourself onto another more suitable path.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 21

You are ready to meet new people, get out of the house and have some fun.  You most likely miss all the socialization or workshops you were able to do in the past before Covid-19.  Those times will come again, you just need to be patient.  There are still so much you had hoped to accomplish in your home or with your hobbies that you still haven’t even started.  The stuff cannot get done without your motivation and skill.  Try to limit all the things you are doing on a daily basis.  You can combine chores/hobbies into a certain time period and then take on perhaps reading a book, or watching that series on Netflix you never finished.  Your mood gets very light and you will be able to accomplish all you want to.  The trick is what do you want to accomplish?  Make a list and try accomplishing one thing a day if you can.  In that way, at the end of the month you will have completed 30 tasks!

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Connecting with friends, thinking about what organizations or clubs you may be interested in joining when the ban is lifted is giving you a lot of hope and you are seeing a bright sunny future for all of us. You continue to be motivated and accomplish so much that even you are surprised at your progress. You tend to be enthused and inspired by Youtube “how to” videos have given you a lot of information on so many new subjects and topics that it’s hard for you to choose what you should do next.  Emotions may be a bit sensitive in a romantic situation, but talking things out is the best way to find a solution to any of your differences. Family members may try to interfere with any plans you are making for yourself or are criticizing you for not doing things the way they always did.  Stay on course.  You are doing what is exactly right for you.  Be strong.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Getting ready to face the world is all you want to do.  You’ve done your crafts, watched all of your TV series, read a few books, did your spring cleaning and now you are literally bored. You want to get out of the house and hike again or go to the park and enjoy the company of friends, family and of meeting new people who may become friends in the future.  You want to go out to lunch with the girls and laugh again.  But you are handling things rather well.  This is a good time to rest and take care of yourself. Metaphysical or esoteric philosophies may be of interest.  They may give you peace of mind as you learn new concepts about yourself and your beliefs.  Relaxing meditation may also be helpful to release any anxiety or apprehension about your future.  You have accomplished so much already.  If you just hang on a little bit more, you will be able to do all the things you want in a safe environment.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

You are becoming more of a person who wants to go out and meet new people, or at the very least, find new friendships. Older ones seemed to have outlived their usefulness.   However, you are very cognizant of your finances and wish for your savings to add up faster than it is.  One way is to stop spending, perhaps on Amazon, as the truth is what you need during your stay at home? You have food, a roof over your head and your health.  If something isn’t working for you, change it!  Perhaps getting a little part time job at home will bring you the extra income you desire if you haven’t been able to find work during the pandemic.  But we know you haven’t been sitting still. The money will be there for what you need, perhaps wait for your wants at another time.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 23

Family, friends, siblings are all around you and it’s time to have serious discussions with them on various topics that may have been upsetting you. Everyone is eager to get over any hard feelings and perhaps you are the one who has to start the discussions. Unusual circumstances may surprise you, but you are well suited to deal with anything that comes your way.  Thinking of when you could go on vacation seems to make you happy.  Short trips may make you less anxious about always being home. Some restaurants do seat people, so maybe you would want to go out with a family or loved one to a restaurant that is safe for dining.  You need to talk more and be alone less, but with some planning, you can do this.

SCORPIO – October 24 – November 2

Family and home life are on your mind now.  Some things may have not turned out the way you had planned, but perhaps some compromise on your part would be very good for all involved.  Why not try to patch things up and just get life going in the right direction.  Short distance travel would be good diversion so plan a small getaway for a few hours so you can feel refreshed and invigorated.  With this new found energy, you can tackle chores or projects that you may have let fall by the wayside.  You may also be having a bit of trouble with coming out with a game plan for the remaining time that we have to stay indoors.  If you are one of the lucky ones who is working from home, take a breather and walk around the block, walk your dog, or have a coffee/tea break to re-energize yourself.  You have so much working for you, just be assured it’s the boredom that is getting to you and nothing else.

SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21

Discovering new things about family, friends, siblings and your home life may be surprising, but it doesn’t change who you are.  Be there for others who really need a shoulder to cry on or some assistance within their home.  You may also be finding a new love that comes into your life.  Are you checking out personal sites even though you can’t meet them right now?  You can always look!   Your forever sweetheart may just be in one of them.  Many karmic lessons are coming your way so you are more than likely in for an interesting month.  Just go with the flow and everything will work out in your best interest.  Creativity, love, and children will also fill your month.  Do crafts, spend time with children after their school day and show them that life can still be fun even if you are stuck at home.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

You are very sensitive these days and feel like you aren’t accomplishing much in the way of overcoming your emotions and fears.  There always seems to be something following you around.  You are very pragmatic, so you know that the energy around you is attracted to you by your efforts, kindness, compassion and empathy.  Be that person that is there for others so that all the positive energy and opportunities will be magnetized to you. Keep calm, handle your plans and “to do lists” one thing at a time.  Prioritize so you will have time to complete a chore/project/work and the rest of the time you can be free to enjoy a good book, relaxation or listening to music to calm your soul.  If you seem more sensitive to others’ criticism or comments, just know this will pass quickly when the month is over.  You need to concentrate on what you think is important and all the rest will follow.

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18   

Health issues should be addressed and if warranted go to your health care practitioner.  Health issues will not disappear on their own.  You need to handle them as soon as you can. You are overwhelmed, exhausted and not really getting all the rest you need.  You seem to be the family mediator and the sense of balance for all of them and it may be getting a bit too much for you to handle with everything else you are balancing.  You may be thinking of not working full time any longer or may be thinking of retirement.  You want to enjoy some of your life now and you may have just gotten a taste of it by being home with the pandemic.  You see that you can supplement with a part time job and may wish to look into cutting a few days from your work schedule. You may also be thinking of starting a home-based business or working from home.

PISCES – February 19 – March 20

This is a good time to make sure all of your important papers are up to date.   Clean out all of the old policies, or paperwork, so it will be easier for others to sort through them if and when the time comes. Sometimes, we procrastinate and don’t get the things done, like updating wills, important papers, insurance policies, etc. Make sure the beneficiaries are the ones you want to leave money to.  Relationships change, people pass and you want to be.  A creative time for you, you may wish to watch the many workshops, lessons and instructions there are on Youtube to learn something new and keep you motivated and inspired.  This is a wonderful time to write stories, poetry or just outline a wonderful story you may have in your head.  Maybe it’s time to come out and surprise you.  Don’t let the fear of failure stop you.  Do what you want to do like paint, draw, sing, dance, take musical lessons or take any type of other education you may be interested in.  You will be so happy that you delved into other art forms or modalities.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 17

(These dates change each year)

AQUARIUS: The sign rules the circulatory system and the ankles. The symbol is the water bearer to is pouring out knowledge to the masses. Keywords are: opinionated, impatient, assertive, independent thinker, progressive, inventive, unconventional, friendly, talker, friends oriented, and somewhat detached to many situations. This sign can be a workaholic, but is also one of the sucker signs (too giving, too caring, too loving, too kind, too generous, too honest and will eventually become a door mat if boundaries are not set).   The old adage is, “If you can’t get along with an Aquarian, you probably aren’t worth knowing.”  They are lovely souls who try to help everyone and really have trouble saying no.  This sign will be the first to help out anyone and will give their last nickel to someone in need.  As a good friend to them, you should not take advantage of their kindness.  They need more limitations and boundaries.

Colors:  Iridescent blues

URANUS:  Ruling planet is Uranus which represents: enlightenment, new beginnings, invention, science, dramatic change, revolutions, sudden events, unexpected events, opportunities, self expression, technology and purpose.  Uranus represents the God of the Sky and the Universe.

Gemstone:  Garnet  *   Theme:  I know  *  Opposite Sign:  Leo

Quality * Fixed:  stable, conservative, stubborn, determined, unchangeable, moody, skeptical, good follow through, and stick to a single course of action.  Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

Element * Air:  Changeable, rational, motivated, quick witted, intellectual, restless, critical, judgmental, resistant, detached, sarcastic, communicative, inventive and rational.  Other Air signs are Gemini and Libra which are Aquarius’ best matches.

Making Wishes

Wishes give us hope for the future that everything will be okay and that we will be happy, prosperous, gainfully employed in whichever career we wish, and that we will find our soul mate.

The difference is the size of the wish, the intent and the long-term celebration or consequences of the wish. It is also in the ways in which we try to manifest our wishes. One bit of interesting information an esteemed colleague gave me at a recent psychic fair was that all wishes should be done on birthday candles!

Why you might ask? Because the whole purpose of the birthday candle is to be used for wishes on your birthday or in a CELEBRATION event. They are made with the intent of celebrating a birthday, anniversary, retirement, birth of a child, baptism, graduation, etc.

So if you need to make a wish come true, or at least give it more intensity, use birthday candles for your wishes. Not only will the candle burn quickly but also it is a celebration candle which will push your intent into the universe quicker manifesting your desires in a shorter time frame than burning day, 7-day or longer candles to burn.

Hope this little tidbit of information was useful. I know I will be buying tons of birthday candles from the dollar store to get my wishes off the ground in a quicker fashion.

Ancient Paths, Modern Choices

I have been teaching and conducting workshops for nearly five decades in both astrology and tarot, I have several books and many articles out on these subjects. I am always asked the same questions. What’s better, tarot or astrology? Is there a difference? Is one better than the other? Is one more accurate? The answer is that it all depends on what type of guidance they are seeking.

Let’s start with astrology since I have been reading charts since I was fourteen years old and am now sixty-three. Astrology has been my life. The natal chart is almost like a doctor’s file on a patient. Everything that is positive or negative is in it. It contains many different aspects of one’s personality, how well or poorly you react to emotional situations or crisis, your intellectual abilities, why relationships succeed or fail and generally if you are the kind of person that others want to know or have as a friend. The houses of the chart tell different areas of life that are affected, for instance, the first house represents the personality you show to the world or the one you want to show to the world and not necessarily the true one; the second represents your money or material values while the third represents communication, short trips, siblings, etc. Twelve distinct areas of life are covered. Depending upon which planets are in that house, what sign(s) are in the house and what aspects hit that house, the personality is formed.

Throughout the years with the planets moving forward (or progressing) from your birth chart (which was a map of the sky at the time of your birth), one’s personality, likes, dislikes, intelligence, relationships and reactions to situations change. Adding in solstice points and solar eclipses which usually occur twice a year (lunar eclipses are best used for Cancerians or Cancerian Ascendant natives), the next six months can be forecasted. Many different possibilities are touched upon as the planets and aspects represent a vast variety of probabilities. One must remember, however, that we choose our own future. We make a million decisions throughout our lifetimes that change our future day by day. Planets and aspects can stand for many different alternatives. When the sun and moon on an “eclipse” day falls into a particular house, that house is activated and an astrologer knows what would be in store for the native throughout the next six months. I usually tell my students that whatever happens on an “eclipse” day will represent the next six months of your life. For example, I recommend spending money on the eclipse so you will have money to spend for six months; be with friends and family you wish to see throughout the next six months; go to work as students who thought they would take it easy the next six months, did exactly that. They lost their jobs since they weren’t working on the eclipse! Think. Complete lists of projects, affirmations or goals. Plan for the next six months. I usually find it helpful to get things in order before an eclipse and then read the list in a positive manner on the eclipse so that the universe will set the stage for your next six months in a very logical and organized manner.

In order to make a competent prediction, an astrologer would know the meanings of the houses, planets and aspects affecting the “eclipse” planets and how they aspect the natal and progressed planets. Simplified, if one has more positive aspects such as sextiles or trines, life within the next six months will be more calm, relaxed, focused, organized and fulfilling without many obstacles. The more squares and oppositions the updated chart has, the more challenges and obstacles might be before the person you are reading. But whether the outcome is a positive or negative one, truly depends on the overall outlook. Obstacles or challenges may be for the native to learn some particular lesson or start handling responsibility, etc.

So in essence, astrology gives you a road map to your life year by year. Once given a road map, one can decide to get to any destination in many ways, by plane, train, bus, car, motorcycle or boat. There are also different roads to a destination, the super highways of life, the interstates, the local roads or back country dirt roads. All lead to a certain destination, however, the path is altered by the mode of transportation and the route one chooses. Remember as in any modality, you have complete control over your life and destiny.

Tarot is basically a different method or concept of predicting the future. First of all, the cards explain what will happen if you do nothing to change the situation. If there was something perceived to be negative by the Querent (person for whom you are doing the reading), it will stay negative unless that person takes a positive action to change the event or circumstances. You are always given options and choices.

One can do various spreads to predict what will happen in a day, week, month, year or particular time period in the future. Most of the spreads can pin point an exact month by month prediction in addition to an overall view of the current situation and how one will handle those situations. Tarot can let you know particular occurrences, obstacles or love with a glance of the cards; it can give you definitive yes or no answers to exact questions as well. The remaining cards in the yes/no spread will also shed more insight into your current situation. Remember that we can change anything we don’t like in the cards if we know what message the card is giving us. Whether we take that information to use to our benefit is our choice.

By using the tarot, one can get an immediate answer to a question and insight into a situation or circumstance and know what to do to change that situation to their benefit. Tarot shows you when to balance your love life, money, career or. It foretells what you must do to correct these areas of life. It often gives us not only the mundane solutions to life, but tells us of the spiritual path we must also follow to be happy in this lifetime.

Tarot suggests blessings from God after going through changes; it tells when one must rest so that the Querent could be protected from an illness or concern with the proper rest and care of himself or herself. Tarot helps build character because it gives the Querent something to fight with. It paves the way for an adaptive attitude towards conflicts, obstacles and concerns. Tarot uses a variety of scenery, backgrounds, figures, and colors to portray each card’s meaning. Sometimes adding one’s knowledge about numerology helps give added meanings to the cards although one can get a feel for the cards just by looking at it. This cannot be done in astrology. If the person has no practical knowledge of the planets, houses and aspects, an astrological interpretation cannot be properly done. It would look like Egyptian to the person — without meaning.

Tarot can also prepare one for issues that need balance in order to be happy or fulfilled – it could represent balance in a relationship (is one partner too dominant and the other too submissive?), money (spending too much and not saving enough?), career (is it really necessary to work 12 hour days? What about time with the family?), and conflicts (can I ride these conflicts out? Should I settle them peacefully? Can I handle what is ahead of me? Is there an end in sight?). Just by adding some common sense and a time frame, one can look into the future and know what must be done to correct any negative situation.

Astrology charts, although very automated now and can be called up on a computer and printed in a few minutes, are extremely difficult to interpret properly. Massive reports can be generated with all types of probabilities for the next year. The reports are so long (usually 50+ pages) because there are so many variables. If you make a decision today or now, you change the future from a few moments ago.

Tarot usually takes anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half to read properly. Astrology can take long hours to decipher and then read to the native. Reference for planet configurations (some use asteroids as well) must be used and placed in the chart and then one must go through each planet of the natal chart, progressed chart and how it affects the natal chart. Many combinations can actually make other configurations of planets better or worse by being in aspect with several planets at the same time. You can guide through astrology and then you have to wait to see if the future comes true. With tarot, you are taking an active role in your future by knowing what will come up and how to alter the outcome for the most positive result for the good of all involved.

I feel tarot is more like psychology. It highlights the problem or concern indicated by the number of cards in a particular suit, and gives you many alternatives to deal with it. Each card also has an answer in it.

Although I love both astrology and tarot, I would imagine it depends on the type of information you are looking for. If you want a very philosophical view of yourself, your character, moods, emotional status, likes, dislikes and the general road map to your life with the next year, then astrological charts are for you. Remember that one does not need to have a chart done more than twice a year. I usually place both eclipses in a chart for a year’s reading, so that my clients need only return once a year for the upcoming year’s events.

Tarot is a useful guidance tool since it can give you the areas of your life causing concern, gives answers to deal with anything from the four suits indicating the problem or challenge.

Remember that we have total and complete control over our lives and the decisions we make. No one can make those choices for us. Tarot is an easier and gives more practical answers to the year ahead; astrology gives us an overview of what is to come and makes us think of all the possibilities and consequences ourselves.

Both are fun, both are guidance tools and both can be very dangerous if used for negative purposes. Never go to a reader who says there is a curse on you; there are no curses, only fear that overtakes us and makes us vulnerable. You do not need to go for readings more than twice a year although once a year is also very accurate and lighting candles and prayers by a reader will not help rid you or your family of the curse usually for a large sum of money. Get references of a tarot reader or astrologer from a reputable new age shop or ask friends or family who they consider to be a reputable reader. Is the price fair? Are they trying to use scare tactics? Are they reading with insight, helpful suggestions and giving positive guidance. No one can or should light a candle for you. Some readers charge ridiculous amounts to burn a candle for you, if they are doing it at all. Spend $1 and light one for yourself in a church! Also, never give any readers large sums of money in cash! I had a client who gave $20,000 to one of these readers in a very vulnerable and depressed state, and then she asked for her deceased husband’s jewelry to also take the curse off of that too. However, the woman was wearing my clients jewelry when she went for another reading. For the $20,000, she got 7 readings and a future with no money and a lost sense of pride and a desperate feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. It seems to be my crusade to steer people in the right direction when it comes to reputable readers. It is not acceptable to have a few greedy and unscrupulous charlatans ruin the path for the rest of us.

Whether you read tarot or astrology, keep your message clear, optimistic and focused. Anyone can change the future. We have the right to mold and shape our own destiny as God intended. Take your future and mold it into something you would be proud of.

Some think astrology is all right to have done while attending a tarot reading is the work of the devil. People — these are useful guidance tools that God gave his people here on earth so we could guide others who have temporarily lost their way or needed some insight into the future. There is no witchcraft involved in these predictive modalities. They are subjects, which are studied and practiced like anything else to become good at it.

Give them a chance, and I believe they will surprise you with their accuracy, their insight and the level of philosophical awareness that is given you.

Also, it is much easier to predict time periods with tarot than it would be in astrology. In tarot, the suits represent different months, signs or time periods. In astrology, one must rely on their intuition (and some help from the progressed moon) to predict when something will happen.
