Tarotscope Week Ending November 19th 2017

CAPRICORN

A new beginning is coming to you via an offer that will see you needing to make choices and decisions that you haven’t wanted to make in the past, particularly where a child is concerned. Secrets will be uncovered that will see you looking at things from a different perspective and this may result in you feeling restricted and more than a little bit stressed as someone or something returns to your life making you feel stuck. Looking at things from a balanced perspective will help you to move from feeling emotionally fragile to a place where you can open yourself to a creative or intimate new beginning that will ground you and lead you to the realisation of a wish.

AQUARIUS

The focus will be on your home and family life this week as life begins coming together energetically, bringing your worries to an end. You have been feeling fragile emotionally and more than a little resentful as underlying issues with family members and close friends have come up for discussion but balance is coming to you physically and financially as a result of these discussions and this will see someone or something returning to your life. A deep thinking or air sign man in your life will prove to be a close friend as he helps you to address any stresses that you’ve struggled with so that you can have the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. Life will begin coming together as you head off on a journey that will bring grounding and happiness.

PISCES

This week sees you taking control over the direction your life is now heading in as you start making choices in love and in business. You will work out what you want, as you contemplate a move of house or big changes to your household and this will see you signing a contract or making an agreement of some kind. You may feel emotionally fragile at present but life will start to get better and an open and honest conversation with someone in power will see you feeling more determined than ever to get to where you want to be. A fire sign or more determined individual will help you to work through any lingering irritations so that you can find the balance you’re looking for both physically and financially, though you may feel vulnerable in the beginning stages of this journey. You can have the life you have been seeking but you will need to keep an open mind in order to make this happen and approaching things logically will help you to nurture relationships with people who can help you along the way.

ARIES

You will enter this week feeling like something is missing from your life but trying to hold things together anyway as you focus on what needs to be done, rather than on what you’d like to be doing. The irritations that have surrounded you will now start to dissipate as a situation comes to an end and you look to a close relationship for some answers. An offer will be made that will lead you to victory over the struggles you’ve had in the past, particularly where a water sign or more nurturing individual is concerned and this will lead you to peace over time and a sense of grounding that has been missing from your life for a long time. A logical approach will see you getting things done a lot faster than you might otherwise do them and this will help you to keep an open mind when confronted with a message about money from an earth sign or more materialistic individual that will potentially make you quite angry. All will work out as it is supposed to in regard to a contract or legal matter, so remain focused on the outcome you want as doing this will lead you to a new beginning over all.

TAURUS

Stressful times will see you heading off on a journey as life starts to change. An air sign or deep thinking man in your life will help give you strength via an offer or gesture he makes that will bring you great happiness. You can have the outcome you want out of this situation, even if you can’t see that happening just yet but the feeling that something is missing will leave you feeling quite isolated in the meantime and more than a little resentful. A water sign or more nurturing man and a fire sign or more controlling woman in your life will open the lines of communication with you and this will see them helping you to regain control over the direction your life is now taking. Choices and decisions will need to be made in both love and business and these may cause battles at first but you will get through these and this will help you to bring an end to all that is no longer serving you so that you can have the outcome you deserve and a new beginning emotionally.

GEMINI

A celebration or happy occasion will see you feeling stronger this week as you begin making choices in love or in business. A separation or disconnection will prove temporary so long as you keep the lines of communication open and honest and there will be an end to any difficulties you have been struggling with. Choices will need to be made in love or in business and making these will give you victory over your current circumstances, leaving you happier than you’ve been in some time. A new beginning will come in for you emotionally as a result of this as you realise that all that you’ve been through lately has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be energetically. Secrets will be uncovered as you embark upon your new beginning that will cause you to feel worried about a child or young person in your circle and you will set about looking for ways to change their situation, setting themselves up for the long term future and a new start both physically and financially.

CANCER

The light will go on this week about something that may preempt a temporary separation or disconnection between you and a significant other as irritations are brought to the surface to be examined. A close relationship will fall by the wayside as you begin to look closely at what you most want and you will need to be logical rather than emotional in your approach to this. Stability is coming to you and a wish will be realised but in the meantime you will need to put on a brave face, even though you may be feeling anything but brave. The erratic behaviour of someone with whom you have shared a close relationship will upset the sense of balance you have created both physically and financially and this may see you feeling quite angry in the short term. You will find grounding however and this will help you to see things from a different perspective leading to a new start opening up for you emotionally.

LEO

Choices and decisions will need to be made this week that you may not have wanted to make in the past and this will see you feeling resentful on many levels. Secrets will be uncovered that will help you to pull things together so that you can find happiness but in the short term you will feel stuck and restricted and this will bring a sense of vulnerability with it as you begin over thinking everything and your imagination goes into overdrive. An earth sign or more grounded individual will help you to open up a creative or intimate new beginning and you will feel empowered as a result of this. A move of house or big changes to your household will mark the beginning of a journey whether physically or mentally that will see you taking control over the direction your life is now heading in. You may feel fragile emotionally and as though you have nothing left to give in many ways at present but stability is coming and life will begin moving quite quickly along as someone or something returns to your circle.

VIRGO

Your home and family life will take a turn for the better this week as you begin moving along in the right direction towards what you have wanted. A new perspective on things will help you to find balance in the way that you think as life begins changing and though you may feel controlled on some levels at first, happiness is coming. Battles have been fought but you will get the life you’ve been seeking so long as you can remain focused on what you really want moving forward and can hold things together in view of that. A new beginning over all will open up a new start emotionally as plans and decisions are made that will take you into your long term future and although at the present you may feel that something is missing, life is going to get better.

LIBRA

Battles mark the start of this week in regard to your home and family life and this will see you feeling fragile emotionally and more than a little bit disillusioned. A separation or disconnection you have been struggling with will prove temporary as you begin seeing things from a more balanced perspective and this will see your close relationships becoming closer as a wish of the heart is realised and a journey you’ve been on either physically or emotionally comes to an end. Stability is coming to you and an offer will be made that will lead to a wish being realised. A creative or intimate new beginning will open up as a result of this and although irritations will persist for a time, life is going to get better.

SCORPIO

You may enter this week feeling emotionally fragile on many levels but life is about to take a turn for the better as an overly emotional individual around you brings their struggles to an end. There is nothing you can do to make things progress any faster than they are going to on their own anyway and this may see you feeling as though you’re in limbo at present but stability is coming to you. A message is coming from someone who has been quite erratic in their behaviour just lately and this will open your eyes to some things, bringing balance both physically and financially and a feeling of strength that’s been missing for too long. A new beginning is coming to you emotionally as you finally see justice done within a situation that hasn’t previously been fair to you. Someone close to you will swing between finding grounding and overthinking as they struggle with a painful situation but a physical and financial new beginning will result from this struggle and despite some ongoing stresses, you will all get the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet.

SAGITTARIUS

The immature behaviour of a child or younger person in your life may have repercussions that will affect the rest of the family this week though they will not want to take responsibility for this. You will need to take control over this situation, even though you likely won’t want to and doing this will lead you in the right direction towards the outcome you have wanted, even though you might be feeling disillusioned at first. The time has come for this individual to start making long term plans and decisions for their future and doing this will see a wish realised. Stability will follow this as you finally work out what you most want and start moving towards it, however this will be short lived and there may be some sleepless nights as you worry about work related or financial issues. You will need to look at things from a balanced perspective, rather than focusing only on what’s not going well, or what you aren’t getting as out of this current arrangement and doing this will leave you feeling better able to see things for what they really are so that a close relationship has the chance to become even closer.

Just Start!

Just start. 

This is the best piece of advice I think anyone can ever give someone else. Because no matter what you want to do, no matter how far away your ideal life seems, the only way you will ever get to where you want to go is to start.

As teenagers we are pushed to plan our lives…we finish high school, try to get into Uni or TAFE, get the job we think will lead to our long dreamed of career. As we leave high school, for many of us, it’s the first time we step out on our own…make our own decisions, test out our boundaries and experience our first taste of freedom. But then what??

As we get older, most of us reach a point where we find ourselves asking

What the frick am I doing with my life?!?

We’ve all felt that at some point. Some of us still do feel that at times (myself included). But at some point we have to start moving…forward…backwards…in a direction…ANY direction…because staying still gets us nowhere and clarity comes with movement.

There doesn’t have to be a major plan. We don’t need to know how we’re going to get to where we’re going…we just need to start taking steps in that general direction. The universe will do the rest.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

You don’t have to have it all figured out. You just have to start…take that first step. Your journey will twist and turn and change as you go along and that’s ok. Change can be good so don’t be rigid about how things need to be and don’t be afraid to step out of your own way if you realise that’s what is required. Have faith that so long as you’re moving, you will end up exactly where you’re supposed to be. You don’t have to control it.

So no matter where you think you want to be heading in your life, ask yourself “What’s the next best step?” And then take it. Then take another and another and another until eventually you don’t have to think about the steps…you just keep moving towards the life you’re truly meant to be living.

JUST START

Whether it’s losing 20 kilos, starting a new business, or running a triathlon. You’ll never get there unless you start…so start…

Tarotscope Week Ending November 12th 2017

CAPRICORN

A creative or intimate new beginning with someone to whom you feel a spiritual connection will leave you feeling more grounded than you have in some time as it brings an end to some of your more pressing recent worries. This may bring up resentment in someone else close to you however and they will let you know about their feelings on this matter, causing you to feel quite restricted in the short term. Remaining grounded will be the best way to deal with this situation, even if it brings up some fears within you at first. Balance is coming to you both physically and financially and you will feel more stable once this happens and more able to look at things from a different perspective. A journey or trip of some kind will lead you to a new beginning on many levels, whilst causing you to feel stuck on others. Peace is coming to you however so look at this as an opportunity to confront what’s been bothering you so that you might bring an end to it.

AQUARIUS

You may feel uncertain about a few things as you enter this week but happiness is coming your way and this will see you working through anything you have considered as difficult. Open and honest lines of communication will see you regaining control over the direction your life is now taking as a message is received and someone or something returns to your circle. Life will begin moving quickly, sending you off on a journey, whether mentally or physically so that you can leave behind all that is no longer serving you. Some irritations will linger around your home and family life until a temporary separation or disconnection comes to an end, pushing you in the right direction towards the outcome you’re seeking. Underlying issues with family members or close friends will come up for discussion, allowing you to work out what you really want moving forward and though some may feel a little resentful about the changes that result from this, in the end it will lead you to a new start emotionally.

PISCES

You will begin feeling stronger this week and more like your old self with the help of a fire sign or more dynamic individual who will push you to work out what you want moving forward. The time has come to bring an end to all that is no longer serving you, even though the thought of doing so makes you feel vulnerable and this will bring a sense of balance back into your life both physically and financially. The erratic behaviour of someone around you may have been causing some battles either between the two of you, or within you personally but you will find grounding. Secrets will soon be uncovered that may leave you feeling alone and quite isolated and unable to work out how best to deal with things at first but an offer will be made to you that will change this as it opens up choices in love or in business that will lead you into your long term future.

ARIES

A close relationship may be being affected by petty jealousies or resentment as you attempt to dig your heels in and be stubborn over what you think you want. Life can potentially move along quickly now but in order for this to happen you will need to bring an end to any restrictions (and this includes the self imposed ones) so that you can start moving in the right direction once more. Most of what you are worried about is not going to happen and a new beginning will open up for you emotionally, bringing an end to all that is no longer serving you, or to a potentially difficult situation that you have been struggling with. You may be feeling emotionally fragile but a stand off that you’ve been dealing with is almost at an end and a close relationship will reconcile to become stronger than ever so that you can begin moving forward again.

TAURUS

You may feel disillusioned as you enter this week, particularly where a water sign or more emotional female is concerned. Where you have been emotionally fragile just lately, you will now begin to see things from a more balanced perspective and this will see you feeling more grounded than you have in some time. A move of house or big changes to your household will bring about a new beginning, creatively or intimately and an end to anything that is no longer serving you so that you can find the happiness you have been looking for. A close relationship will become closer as you start making long term plans and decisions for your future and begin to feel more like yourself. Some stresses may linger a little but an offer will be made that will open up some honest lines of communication and this will help you to see what you want as a new start opens up for you both physically and financially.

GEMINI

A creative or intimate new beginning that you have been embarking upon lately may stall a little this week and you will struggle to put on a brave face about this. Someone or something will return to your circle and this will benefit your family life overall though it may send you off on some kind of a journey at the same time as things begin changing and you feel perhaps a little overwhelmed. Small irritations may linger but over all a close relationship will become closer, pushing you along in the right direction towards what you’re seeking. Choices in love or in business may see you feeling alone and somewhat isolated as you start making long term plans for your future but seem to run into endless battles along the way but you will have victory over your challenges in the end.

CANCER

This week sees life coming together as you have wanted it to, bringing your worries to an end and opening you up to a new beginning emotionally. You may have been feeling overly emotional over a child or young person in your life with whom you’ve been at a bit of a stand off but you will find a way to pull things together so that you can have what you have wanted. A new opportunity, whether work or otherwise related will lead you to a new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one and the stability you have been looking for. You can have victory over your struggles as underlying issues with a family member or close friend are bought up for discussion. Choices and decisions will need to be made that you may not have wanted to make in the past and this will see you feeling restricted but making these will lead you to a new start in all areas.

LEO

Changes are coming into your life this week that will lead you to a new beginning emotionally as you begin to work through any obstacles that have previously stood in the way of your happiness. You may have been feeling quite disillusioned about things just lately but your worries will soon come to an end despite how stuck you might feel at the present as an offer is made that will make everything better. Your home and family life will benefit as a new start opens up for you, particularly where your closest relationships are concerned and a move of house or big changes to your household will be the icing on the cake. Knowing what you want will help you to move through any restrictions that might have been standing in your way as you find balance both physically and financially.

VIRGO

Life is set to get better as underlying issues with family members or close friends are brought to the surface for discussion, bringing about improvements in your closest relationships. Knowing what you want will help you to work through any feelings of being stuck you might have been struggling with as you begin moving along in the direction of everything you have ever wanted. Secrets will be uncovered as information is offered to you that makes some things clearer for you and helps you to feel more stable. You can have what you want, even if you can’t see that happening just yet and a move of house or big changes to your household will see life starting to move along very quickly. An offer will be made to you that may see you feeling the need to put on a brave face as you iron out any kinks. You will begin feeling stronger over time however and a message is coming that will lead you to a brand new emotional beginning.

LIBRA

The light is about to go on for you about a situation that you will need to move quickly to resolve as an offer is made that could potentially be quite lucrative financially. You will begin feeling more whole emotionally as life starts improving and you strike a balance between your work and home life and this will lead you to a new start both physically and financially and more of a feeling of groundedness than you have experienced in some time. You may have been feeling that something’s been missing but an opportunity is coming to you, whether work or otherwise related that will see you feeling as though you’re in control of the direction your life is heading in so that where you have felt emotionally drained in recent times, you will start feeling stronger. You will need to be logical in your approach to anything that may bring up resentment in you as allowing your emotions to overwhelm you here will only see you feeling more restricted. Holding on too tight to past hurts will only cause you pain so instead try focusing on the close relationships that can bring you the most joy.

SCORPIO

Underlying issues with family members or close friends will be brought up for discussion this week so that you can work out what you most want moving forward. You may be feeling quite vulnerable at present but a wish is about to be realised and a new start is coming to you on an emotional level that will leave you feeling empowered and stronger than you have in some time. Happier times are coming to you as you begin seeing things from a more balanced perspective and a fresh new beginning opens up to you. Knowing what you want will enable you to help a deep thinking man in your life to make choices in love or in business and remaining logical in your approach to him rather than allowing your emotions to overwhelm you will help you to bring an end to the way things have been. Most of what you have worried about is not going to happen and any illusions that have been affecting a close relationship will be worked through so that it can become closer than ever.

SAGITTARIUS

This week sees you pulling things together as you attempt to take control over the direction your life is now heading in, bringing in changes and some kind of an offer. A new start is coming to you emotionally and life will get better as a result as you begin working through anything that has previously been standing in your way. Life is set to start moving quite quickly and you might find this stressful on levels but it will benefit your home and family life over all. A new beginning is coming to you physically and financially and this will see the lines of communication opening up between you and someone to whom you’ve long felt spiritually connected. Some irritations will come up around a trip or journey of some kind but rest assured you are moving along in the right direction towards what you want.

Tarotscope Week Ending November 5th 2017

CAPRICORN

A new beginning both physically and financially will see you planning for a trip or holiday of some kind this week and you really do feel you deserve it. Open and honest lines of communication will see things moving along quite quickly, particularly where a fire sign or more fiery natured individual is concerned and this will bring a sense of peace with it as a phase in your life comes to an end and you begin taking control over your direction once more. A wish will be realised as you begin seeing things from a new perspective and this will bring about a new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one. You may feel vulnerable as an air sign or more aloof woman around you shows her resentment towards you and what she perceives as her missing out on something whilst things always seem to work out best for you. There is a connection between you and this woman but it is clouded by anger at present at what she sees as a lack in her life on every level. A creative or intimate new beginning, pregnancy or birth around you will help you to see things from a more balanced perspective.

AQUARIUS

The return of someone or something to your life this week will create some battles within your or around you that will lead to a breakthrough of some kind. A new beginning is coming to you physically and financially, pushing you through any feelings of disillusion that you may have been struggling with so that you can see things more clearly. A child or young person around you will bring a sense of happiness to you as other issues are brought up with your family members or close friends for discussion and something comes to a permanent end. Focus will be brought back to your home and family life as things begin changing and you can finally see a way to get the life you have wanted. You will begin moving along in the right direction towards what you want, though this may be somewhat of a lonely road at first. Knowing what you’re seeking will help you to make good decisions, particularly where your career and finances are concerned and this will lead to a better opportunity.

PISCES

Secrets will be uncovered that will lead you to a new beginning emotionally, though you may feel controlled by these at first. You have been feeling weakened just lately by circumstances beyond your control but happiness is coming to you and this will help you to see that all you’ve been through has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be. Life is about to get better over all as you begin looking at things from a different perspective, particularly where your closest relationships are concerned. A separation or disconnection that you’ve been experiencing will come to an end as choices and decisions are made that you have not wanted to make in the past. A balanced outlook will bring an end to your worries and the resulting changes will see a close relationship becoming ever closer.

ARIES

This week will see you needing to hold yourself together as a message is received that will create battles, both within you and around you. An end is coming to something and this will see you needing to work out exactly what you want as an offer is made to you that you may not have been expecting. You will feel uncertain of how to move forward and emotionally fragile as a result of this as underlying and difficult issues with family members and close friends are brought up for discussion but talking about such things will see life taking a turn for the better. A water sign or more nurturing woman in your life is also seeking a new start of some kind and her new, more logical perspective will see her thinking much more clearly about what she wants out of her relationships, on all levels moving forward. This may bring up some fears in you and even a degree of irritation but most of what you will worry about is not going to happen and you will find a way to regain balance both physically and financially.

TAURUS

Someone or something will be leaving your life permanently this week, bringing an end to the way things have been for so long and your initial instinct might be to hold on if you can. Where you’ve had happiness you will now feel embattled but all that you’re going through at present is going to lead you to exactly where you’re supposed to be, spiritually speaking. Choices and decisions now need to be made in love and in business that will bring a close relationship closer and the return of someone or something to your life will see you getting the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. A new start both physically and financially will come from a place of vulnerability, however a disconnection or separation that you have been experiencing will prove temporary so try not to allow any feelings of isolation to overwhelm or control your forward progress as a new opportunity is presented to you.

GEMINI

You have been feeling somewhat spent emotionally just lately and stuck on many levels as an agreement or contract you have agreed to embark on threatens to overwhelm you. Spiritually speaking you are exactly where you’re supposed to be even though you have been struggling with work or financially based issues. There is nothing you can do to make things happen any faster than they are going to anyway so try not to be overly emotional as this will only make everyone around you feel that way too, causing distress for everyone. An end is coming to something and you will worry as to whether or not you are making the right decisions moving forward. Choices in love or in business will help you to pull things together as you start making choices in regards to a close relationship that will take you into your long term future and this will help you to leave behind anything that is no longer serving you.

CANCER

You may enter this week feeling vulnerable as a secret is uncovered that may lead to a temporary separation or disconnection of some kind. This will see you feeling weakened and alone on many levels but you will be able to get the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. You may feel controlled on some levels but a new start is coming to you emotionally, even if it does take a little longer than you might like. A new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will help you to pull things together and this will be followed by a new start both physically and financially. Choices and decisions will need to be made in love and in business and this will see you looking at things from a different perspective. Stressful times may bring up resentments, particularly where older children are concerned but your close relationships with the young people in your life will remain close.

LEO

A creative or intimate new beginning will have you feeling vulnerable this week as an earth sign or more grounded individual makes you an offer and life begins moving along very quickly. Secrets will be uncovered that will bring something to an end and you may feel somewhat resentful during this time as you’re pushed to make choices and decisions that you haven’t wanted to make in the past. A disconnection or separation you have been dealing with will prove temporary thanks to a fire sign or more determined individual. You may feel as though you don’t have much left in your tanks emotionally but a move of house or big changes to your household will give you the strength to face an ending that’s been coming for some time without fear.

VIRGO

Irritations will come up this week that will need to be worked through if you are going to get the life you have wanted. You have been feeling alone and quite isolated for some time now, despite any company that you may have been keeping and you are reaching a point wherein you are finding it hard to keep up a brave face. A move of house or big changes to your household may have you feeling uneasy and behaving erratically as it shines a light on some things that you may have been unaware of or haven’t wanted to acknowledge in the past. Choices will need to be made in regard to your career or your finances and this will see a close relationship becoming closer and life beginning to improve. A water sign, or more emotional individual in your circle will also find some elusive happiness as they finally have victory over their struggles.

LIBRA

The light is about to go on for you about something that will lead you to a new beginning both physically and financially this week. Obstacles that you have been faced with can be worked through and this will result in a new beginning emotionally that will then lead to a new beginning over all. Life is set to get better but there is nothing you can do to make this happen any faster than it is going to happen any way. Choices and decisions will need to be made that you haven’t wanted to make in the past but this will help you to feel stronger as a wish of the heart is realised. You will feel stronger then moving forward as you start to see things from a different perspective and this will enable you to get the life you have wanted.

SCORPIO

A new beginning is coming to you this week and even though you may feel at the moment that something is missing from your life, a logical approach to things will see you moving along in the right direction towards what you have been seeking and this will culminate in happiness and a celebration of some kind. Choices and decisions will need to be made that will take you into your long term future giving you the stability you have been seeking and making these will take you on a journey as life begins changing. Listening to your intuition will see you needing to make choices and decisions that you haven’t wanted to make in the past and this may see you feeling restricted on many levels. Your mind will be made up however by an event that brings up anger within you but that you feel powerless to do anything about at the moment. You may have been feeling emotionally exhausted as someone or something returns to your life but you will counteract that by focusing on a new opportunity, whether work or otherwise related.

SAGITTARIUS

You will enter this week feeling stronger than you have in the past despite some ongoing battles and life is set to get better. You can have the life you have wanted and an earth sign or more grounded individual will help you to do this as a creative or intimate new beginning opens up between you and you begin taking control over the direction your life is now heading in. A wish will be realised as an air sign or more deep thinking individual sends you a message that will bring a close relationship between you even closer. Looking at things from a different perspective will see you working out what you really want as a loan situation with an earth sign or more financially secure individual creates resentment and leaves you feeling alone and quite isolated. You will find support in your closest relationships as you deal with this.

Perfect is the Enemy of Good

It doesn’t matter if you’re married or single, working or unemployed, old or young, having unmet expectations is a good way to destroy your relationship connections. Relationships of all kind, not just the romantic ones. No one is immune to it.

During my career, I’ve noticed one constant that destroys the relationships of my clients over and over again and that is expectation…especially when expectations are consistently unmet. Having extremely high expectations for ourselves or others, dooms us to failure before we even start. We all set expectations that can sometimes be way out of reach. And for good reason. We want to be the best we can be with the skills and talents we have. It’s a noble and honorable desire.

We see the movies, the TV shows, the magazines, the advertisements, and everything else that communicates to the general public that we’re not good enough. We see the models that look beyond perfect and compare our own bodies to them and think, “I’ll never look that skinny.” We see celebrities aging without wrinkles, at times looking as though the clock is going backwards and wonder why that can’t be us.

But we dont only compare ourselves to celebrities and models, we compare ourselves to the “perfect” version of ourselves. That version that we’ve created in our mind of what we could be if we were able to be the best “me” we can be. That version has the best and brightest friends, family and business associates, nails the biggest clients and earns the high accolades. But in reality, that version…does not exist.  There’s absolutely no point in writing a hit song if no one ever gets to hear it, or a best selling book if you’re too afraid for anyone to read it.

Perfection is the enemy of contentedness. Or as Voltaire puts it:
“Perfect is the enemy of good.”

If I asked a random person on the street, or even if you just ask yourself, “Do you want to be good at what you do?” They/you would probably say, “Heck YEAH I want to be good!” So why are most of us waging war against good in pursuit of perfect?
Perfectionism suffocates our creativity by burdening us with expectation. Instead of fanning the flame of our desires…it pours litres of water on the wood before we even try to light it.

Good and done is WAY BETTER than perfect and unfinished.

As Seth Godin likes to say, “Just ship it.”

I’m not saying we shouldn’t aim high, just that there needs to be a balance between being “ambitious” and being “ridiculous” because having ridiculous expectations just leads to pain and unfulfilled ambitions.

Stressful times mark the start of this week but a separation or disconnection you have been dealing with will prove temporary. A younger or less emotionally mature individual will open the lines of communication with you as they start making choices in love or in business and look for some stability. A couple of women will be instrumental in helping you with these changes and these will help lead this child or young person to a new start both physically and financially and a creative or intimate new beginning also. A fire sign or more empowered individual with whom you share a close relationship will help turn a light on for you as you bring an end to some things that are no longer necessary and this may see you feeling a little disillusioned momentarily. An offer will be made that will lead to a move of house or big changes to your household and this will bring you balance both physically and financially .

AQUARIUS

Strength will be needed as you enter this week needing to look at your life, particularly in regards to your career or finances and work out ways to pull things together. A new beginning is coming for you emotionally that will see you getting the life you’ve been seeking for some time now and you will need to find ways to look at things without allowing your emotions to get the better of you. Someone or something will re-enter your life and this will see you needing to listen more closely to your intuition as you may feel disillusioned by this and even quite angry about it to begin with. Put on a brave face however as your worries will be mostly unfounded despite some lingering irritations. An earth sign or more stubborn individual will help you to leave behind all that is no longer serving you.

PISCES

Stability is coming to you as an earth sign or more usually competent man seems to struggle with emotional instability as he endeavours to get his head on straight. A deep thinking man and a more pushy woman will push you to disengage from this person but even if you do this will be temporary and the disconnection will soon come to an end. A new opportunity, whether work or otherwise related is coming in for you and when it does, most of what
you’re worried about will not happen. Changes are coming in that will see a close relationship becoming closer as you begin making choices and decisions for your long term future. A new start is coming emotionally and this will lead to a move of house or big changes to your household and over all happiness.

ARIES

This week will see you start moving along in the right direction despite your fears about doing this. A separation will become temporary as a creative or intimate new beginning opens up for you, leading you to victory over previous struggles. You may have been appearing not to care about something that you actually care very much about but this will soon come to an end as you start taking control over the direction you’re life is heading in. An offer will soon be received that will see you get what you want out of a particular situation, even if you can’t see that happening just yet and this will see a close relationship becoming closer as a relationship with a more dominating female comes to a permanent end. A message will see you working through a lot of things that have been standing in the way of your happiness and this will lead you to a new beginning both physically and financially.

TAURUS

A message is coming to you this week that will uncover some kind of deception leading to some issues with family members or close friends coming up for a long over due discussion. An offer is coming to you, whether work or otherwise related and this will see life starting to move along very quickly as a contract or agreement is made, however this may take a little longer to materialise than you might like it to. A fire sign or more fiery natured individual may struggle emotionally this week and you will need to help them find peace, even though this may take a little time. Listen to your intuition as this will point you in the right direction, helping you to work through any obstacles as they come up so that you can regain control over the direction you’re life is heading in. Erratic behaviour from someone close will require some balanced communication but if you can remain focused on what you really want you will be able to have the life you’ve been dreaming of.

GEMINI

Battles that you have been dealing with in recent times will be worked through this week and brought to an end as you pick yourself up and regain control of the direction your life is now heading in. An earth sign or more motherly woman in your life has given you comfort in recent times and this has seen you feeling more able to look at things logically, whilst a fire sign, or more determined male has given you some semblance of stability and peace that will grow over time. Fear or pain has seen you feeling quite stuck for a time, potentially brooding over long past issues or occurrences. Stability is coming to you but you really need to choose this as hanging onto things you cannot change is only restricting you. The light will go on about something that your intuition has been telling you for some time and this may see you feeling quite disillusioned and unsure of how to react or respond. Information will soon be offered to you that will help you to see things more clearly and this will see you finally moving in the right direction.

CANCER

You may end this week feeling alone and quite isolated and more than a little fragile emotionally, however, a separation or disconnection you have been struggling with will soon come to an end and you will begin feeling more stable as a result. There is a feeling of vulnerability surrounding a choice in love or in business and you may not feel you have much left in your emotional tanks however a close relationship will become closer due to the efforts of a determined individual. Focus on your home and family life this week and listen to your intuition as this will leave you feeling empowered as an offer is received and decisions are made. Rest assured that you will make the right ones.

LEO

A contract or agreement of some kind will benefit your family as a whole, moving you along in the right direction towards what you’ve wanted. Open and honest lines of communication will see a wish realised that will lead you to long lasting peace and a new beginning emotionally. A younger person in your circle will see some big changes coming into their life that they may not know how to deal with as this will mean that an end is coming to something else permanently. Choices and decisions in love or in business will see you feeling quite stuck but you will have the strength to push through this, despite feeling alone and quite isolated for a time. Listening to your intuition will help you to make choices and decisions you haven’t wanted to make in the past and though this may be stressful at first an offer will follow that will take you on some kind of a journey.

VIRGO

Choices and decisions will need to be made this week in regard to your love life or business and you will have victory over your struggles once you have made these. You will feel more empowered as you start taking control over the direction you’re heading in and although you may feel that life is controlling you at first, you will get the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. A deep thinking or more logical man in your circle will help you to realise a wish and gain some focus in your life and open and honest lines of communication with him will help you to pinpoint what it is that you really want moving forward. Happiness is coming to you even if you feel vulnerable right now and this will bring a sense of peace with it. You may feel restricted by the erratic behaviour of someone close and if this doesn’t change it will see you leaving them behind you.

LIBRA

A creative or intimate new beginning will help you to pull things together and create the stability you have been looking for, even if it means making choices you haven’t wanted to make in the past. You will have victory over your struggles and a new start will result as secrets are uncovered that will actually make things easier for you on some level. You can have the life you have wanted and what has been missing will be addressed as underlying issues with family members or close friends are brought to the surface for discussion so that you can see everyone else’s point of view. This will see you feeling empowered on many levels, however an older couple may not be so happy with the way things pan out and this could create some battles between you and they that will lead to somewhat of a stand off. You may feel emotionally drained after this happens but you need to go with your gut instincts, especially when issues relating to your finances or career are brought up and thrown in your face.

SCORPIO

A fire sign or more determined individual in your circle to whom you have some kind of connection will begin making some long term plans for their future with you this week and this will see you feeling less controlled than you have in some time. Peace will come over you as a new beginning opens up to you emotionally, leading you to the home and family life you have wanted. Some irritations will linger despite the closeness of this relationship as you are forced to make choices that you haven’t wanted to make in the past due to someone’s stubbornness. This individual needs to have a good long look at them self but they will do this and this will be the realisation of a wish for you. An emotionally immature individual will find enough stability to speak openly and honestly with you about a mental journey they have been on and this will see them feeling more whole emotionally than they have possibly ever in their life. Stability will follow and a new beginning in all areas.

SAGITTARIUS

The return of someone or something to your life will have you feeling unsure of how to deal with things and you may have to put on a brave face whilst you work this out. A message is coming that will see you making choices in regard to your career or finances as an offer is made and you will need to look at this offer from all points of view. The time has come to walk away from something permanently and doing this will bring about changes big and small. These changes will lead you in the right direction towards what you have long wanted and a new opportunity, whether work or otherwise related will follow. You may feel emotionally fragile as a woman in power throws her weight around and tries to use her intellect to dominate you. Try not to take this permanently and this will see her taking you under her wing.

There Are No Wrong Reactions

As a reader, I often have people come to see me who are almost paralysed by their inability to make a decision…choose a path.  This can see them feeling stuck, unable to progress on their journey, sometimes for years! What I always try to tell them is that here is no such thing as a right or wrong response to any given situation as we all come to it with our own experience and our reactions and responses and the consequences of these, go on to shape us into the people we are supposed to  become.
Our view of the universe is largely determined by our experiences and it is when we are caught off guard by experiences that we have not planned for, expected, or ever had before, that we are most likely to respond authentically, even when our feelings are not the same as everybody else’s.  Events that arouse strong emotions within or surprise us in their severity can be unsettling, because it is often is in their aftermath that we discover how profoundly our histories have shaped us. The things that divide us from our peer group are highlighted in our different reactions to situations that upset us and these differences can be highly stressful because they force us to confront the uniqueness of our lives and thus to confront our truest nature that is often hidden from the world most of the time.

When our response to unexpected news or startling ideas is not the same as that of the people around us, we may feel driven by a desire to dismiss our feelings as irrational or wrong and others around us may support this because doing so makes them feel more comfortable but reactions themselves are neither right, nor wrong. The forces that sculpted our patterns of development are not the same forces that shaped the development of our relatives, friends, colleagues, or neighbours and because of this, there is no reason to believe that one person’s reaction to a particular event is somehow more valid than another’s. How we respond to the constant changes taking place in the world around us is a product of our history and our individuality and is a part of the healing process that allows us to address key elements of our past in a context we can grasp in the present, where we may not have had the tools to do this before.

Life’s pivotal events can provide you with a way to define yourself as a unique and unmatched individual, but in order for this to happen, you must put aside the judgments that might otherwise stop you from gaining insight into the way in which you as an individual interpret the world. Try just sitting with your feelings without categorising or evaluating them. When you feel unsure of the legitimacy of your reactions, remember that cultural, sociological, spiritual, and environmental differences can cause two people to interpret a single event in widely dissimilar ways. So examine your responses outside the context provided by society or your peer group and this will help you to see that your own emotions are something to be valued as they have made you who you are today. IMG_0863

If You’re Still Breathing, Its Not The End

IMG_0837.PNG

 

Lately I have come across many people and scenarios wherein life just seems to be falling apart and there is nothing that really can be done about it. This is a hard situation to face at any time in your life and if you allow it, it can become quite soul destroying. We’ve all been through it and it really can’t be described as anything but shit whilst you’re going through it but depending on how you look at it, these things can end up being defining moments – the best times of your life – albeit after the fact.

When external factors shift and seemingly collapse, we can look at this as a disaster, or we can see it for what it is…an opportunity to rediscover our core, the truth that lies within us, which,at the end of the day, is the only truly safe place for us to reside.

There are times when our whole world seems to be falling apart around us. Our relationships are crumbling, we’ve lost our job our physical environment is imploding and we feel as though we have nothing to hold onto anymore. At other times, it’s nothing we can put our finger on, we just feel as if all the walls have fallen down around us and we are left with nothing to rely on, exposed and vulnerable. These are the times in our lives when we are given an opportunity to see where we have established our sense of identity, safety, and well-being. What has become “real” to us as opposed to how things really are when all of the facades are burnt to the ground. While it is perfectly natural and part of the process of being human to locate our sense of self in what we do or what other people think of us, any time those external factors shift, we have an opportunity to rediscover and move closer to our core, who we really are.

The core of our being is not affected by the shifting winds of circumstance, nor is it subject to the cycles of change that govern our physical reality. It is as steady and consistent as the sun. Like the sun, there are times when our core seems to be inaccessible to us, when we get so caught up in external expectations and circumstances that we feel that we have lost ourselves but this is never really the case. We know that when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets for the night, it has not disappeared but is simply temporarily out of sight and n the same way, we can trust that our inner core is always shining brightly, even when we allow our “crap” to get in the way.

This is the knowledge that we need to cling to when things around us are falling apart. The inner certainty that an inexhaustible light shines from within ourselves. Times of external darkness can be a great gift if we choose to see them that way. They provide an opportunity to remember this inner light that shines regardless of the circumstances of our lives. This can and often does change us forever but always for the better if we allow it.

Tarotscope Week Ending October 22nd 2017

CAPRICORN

Choices will need to be made this week in love or in business and a wish of the heart will be realised that will lead you to a new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one. Someone’s behaviour may be quite erratic as secrets are uncovered and life begins to move along more quickly than usual. Changes are coming thick and fast at the present and this may see you feeling somewhat resentful at times about the toll they are taking on your life, leaving you feeling that something is missing. A close relationship will help you to get through this so that you can have the outcome you truly deserve but a fire sign or more impulsive man in your life will make some choices in regards to finances or career that may leave you feeling controlled in the short term. A wish will be realised in the longer term however and so in the meantime you must find a way to pull things together.

AQUARIUS

A journey of some kind will uncover something you may not have been aware of before and this will have the potential to lead you to a new beginning both physically and financially. A close relationship may come under stress as fears come to the surface to be dealt with and you will be left feeling fragile emotionally until you find a way to look at things from a different perspective. Once you can do this, changes will follow that will lead you to victory over your struggles but not until underlying issues between family members or close friends are brought out into the open for discussion. A new start on an emotional level will result from these discussions but you may still feel controlled on many levels for a time. A new beginning to an old relationship will see someone reentering your life and opening the lines of communication, though this may see some things coming out into the open that you may not have been aware of in the past that could bring up some feelings of resentment in the short term. Working through this however will lead you in the right direction towards what you’re seeking long term.

PISCES

You may enter this week feeling vulnerable and somewhat restricted as something comes to an end but a new relationship or a new beginning to an old one will bring about a new opportunity. There is nothing you can do in order to make things happen any faster than they are going to anyway and you might feel emotionally fragile as a result of that but someone or something will soon be returning to your life and you will need to approach this logically as you are pushed to make choices and decisions that you haven’t wanted to make in the past. Making these decisions will bring a sense of balance to you both physically and financially, even though at first it may feel like something is missing. You will begin to feel more like yourself emotionally as you realise that all you have been through has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be and this will see life getting better on all levels.

ARIES

You may enter this week feeling emotionally spent and more fragile than you have in some time as feelings of vulnerability threaten to overwhelm you. There is nothing you can do to change things any faster than they are going to change on their own anyway but you will find yourself struggling deeply with this and battling many internal demons that may spill out into your reality. Someone or something will return to your life and this will see you feeling a little more like your old self and happier than you have in some time as you are able to see things from a more balanced perspective. Choices need to be made in regard to your career or finances and as changes are made accordingly, issues will come up for discussion with family members or close friends. A separation or disconnection that you have been struggling with will come to an end and most of what you have worried about is not going to happen. You may find yourself making an offer to someone as you push yourself to make choices and decisions that you haven’t felt ready to make in the past, freeing yourself from restriction and the self imposed feeling of being stuck in order that you might move forward and have the life you have wanted.

TAURUS

An offer will be made to you this week that will benefit your home and family life though you may feel a little controlled by it at first. A new start is coming to you physically and financially and you will need to know what you want moving forward and put on a brave face until you get it. Don’t become too focused on financial matters or material possessions to the detriment of all else as this will only bring you battles both internally and externally. A spiritual connection will bring a close relationship even closer so have faith that a separation or disconnection that you have been dealing with will prove to be temporary. You will find grounding as you take control over the direction your life is now heading in and this will see you feeling strong enough to leave behind all that is no longer serving you.

GEMINI

The end of something from your past has you feeling emotionally fragile at present but you will find stability despite the feeling that you have nothing to feel happy about at the moment. You will begin feeling stronger though your feelings will be quite erratic for a time and an emotionally nurturing individual in your circle will help bring about a creative or intimate new beginning that will bring balance into your life both physically and financially. Choices and decisions will need to be made in regards to your career and your finances as an offer is made that will bring with it the realisation of a wish of the heart that will benefit your home and family life overall. A new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will see you feeling vulnerable at first but rest assured that whatever you are choosing at present is going to be a move in the right direction towards what will be best for you in the long term.

CANCER

A close relationship will become closer as a wish is realised and an offer of some kind is made and your home and family life will benefit as a result of this, bringing any worries you have been struggling with to an end. You may have been feeling emotional on levels but you will only restrict yourself further if you allow your worries to run away with you, particularly where money or career related concerns are involved. A new opportunity, whether work or otherwise related will see you moving along in the right direction towards what you want, improving your closest relationships and opening you up to a new start emotionally. Listening to your intuition will lead you to the life you have always wanted.

LEO

A separation or disconnection you have been struggling with will prove temporary but this will happen in its own time rather than in yours and that could have you overthinking and feeling quite irritated. Underlying issues with family members or close friends will come up for discussion as you begin making plans for your long term future. Someone or something will return to your circle prompting some open and honest lines of communication that will help you to work through any obstacles that have been standing in your way. Any resentment or frustration that you have been feeling will be brought to an end as you finally get the outcome you truly deserve and are able to see that all you’ve been through has been leading you to where you’re supposed to be. You will feel empowered as this happens and your closest relationships will benefit as a result.

VIRGO

An end is coming to your worries this week as choices are made in both love and in business that will lead to the realisation of a wish. An earth sign or more motherly figure will be a good confidante as you head into a new relationship or commence a new beginning to an old one and this will see you feeling more whole emotionally than you have in some time. Most of what you have worried about is not going to happen and the return of someone or something to your circle will see you getting the outcome you truly deserve as a new opportunity presents itself. A younger or less mature individual will make you an offer that will lead you to exactly where you’re supposed to be and though you may feel a little vulnerable and somewhat controlled to begin with a message will come that will lead you to happiness.

LIBRA

Choices and decisions will need to be made this week in regards to your long term future as some things come to an end and you will need to put on a brave face, even if you aren’t feeling so brave. Underlying issues with family members or close friends will come up for discussion and talking about things will benefit your home and family life greatly. A younger or less emotionally mature individual may have some kind of an outburst as their emotions overwhelm them and they are left feeling that something is missing from their life. A logical or more aloof individual will help you to break through any obstacles that this situation may be throwing up, including the resentment of this younger person as they help you to take your emotions out of the situation and see things from a more balanced perspective. Peace will follow as you begin making choices in love and in business, leading to balance both physically and financially.

SCORPIO

A physical or financial new beginning is coming to you with the input of an earth sign or more money savvy woman but still you feel stuck at the present time and more than a little bit vulnerable as a result. An end is coming to a situation as a result of a message received that feels like its been a long time coming and you will need to work out what you most want. Stresses need to be channeled into new opportunities, whether work or otherwise related as you deal with an emotionally immature individual. Life will get better overall but there are still some battles to face due to lingering irritations over past issues. A creative or intimate new beginning will bring up underlying issues with family members or close friends for discussion so that they can be left behind you permanently. Choices and decisions will also need to be made in regard to your career and finances and making these will bring a sense of peace as you head off on a journey towards a new beginning both physically and financially.

SAGITTARIUS 

You will begin feeling stronger this week as a wish of the heart is realised and you are finally able to bring a situation to an end. A younger or less emotionally mature individual will cause you great distress as they seem to disconnect themselves emotionally from you but things are going to get better and you need to hold onto that. The light is about to go on for you about something as you hear some gossip that will bring up some underlying issues with family members or close friends for discussion. Stability is coming but you may feel that something is missing for you at first as someone or something returns to your life, leaving you unsure of how you feel about that. A balanced outlook will help you to see how best to move forward as new opportunities present themselves.

Cleaning Out Your Energetic Closet

FullSizeRender

Your soul essence is the core of your strength. The energetic magnet that draws to you everything that you want in your life. It’s that “something about you” that people are drawn to without necessarily ever being able to put their finger on what it actually is that they like. It’s the energy you radiate out to the world. Who you are at your core, where your personal power lies. It’s what attracts everything you desire and some things you don’t because people can feel your energy before you even open your mouth.

When we start to live from a place of love, trust and faith then the same vibration is attracted back to us and life begins to flow more easily. Everything has a vibration, from our thoughts to our voice, to our overall being. Speaking our thoughts gives our vibrations strength and momentum and at times we need to create space in our lives in order to let new things flow in.

When we’re energetically full because of our connections with our jobs, our friends, our families, partners there is no space left for wonder and magic to come in and when this happens we need to take time to create space. Space in our homes which will allow us to welcome new energy, beauty and people. Space between thoughts so new and fantastic creative ideas and solutions can come through. Space in our relationships so we can look at ourselves and appreciate who we have in our lives and why they are there. We can then welcome new people into our lives who can inspire us and lift us to new heights.

When we create space in our lives, we open ourselves up to attract new experiences. Old relationships are rekindled, new relationships are born, new furniture is bought into the home, along with new ideas and more clarity about the way things are as opposed to how you’d like them to be. New opportunities are then born out of this clarity as we find ways to co-create new energies and allow things to flow. Trusting that letting go of the old will help us to replace it with something so much better will make this process much easier.

Sweeping your floors each morning is an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy and for most of us, sweeping has become an activity performed without much thought, or replaced altogether by the noisy but efficient vacuum cleaner. In several cultures and religions around the world however, sweeping the front and back verandah each morning is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Sweeping can be used to sanctify a space and prepare it for a ceremony because the process has the power to clear away the old and make space for the new. Sweeping stirs up the energy in a place, clearing out the astral buildup that is the natural by-product of the presence of living organisms.

This kind of sweeping is not about cleaning. In fact, the broom doesn’t have to actually touch the ground to be effective. You might want to consider having two different brooms, one you use for cleaning dust and dirt, and one you use for energy clearing. You could even make your own energy clearing broom out of tree branches and twigs, or choose a naturally appearing broom from nature, such as a pine bough.

Sweeping each morning prepares the ground for the new day and can also help us to let go of the past to welcome the present. As we clear the energy of our space, we clear our own energy systems and create a space that feels clean, clear, and open to all who enter. Try to always think welcoming thoughts as you sweep, manifesting what you need for the day and make sweeping part of your daily ritual. This will tune you into the continuing cycle of releasing the old and welcoming the new that is the foundation of a healthy energy system.

Write an inventory of where you might be able to create more space in your life, coming from a place of love and not fear. Let go of old stuff, material possessions, toxic people old belief systems and ways of life. This process might be difficult but if you can let go of your fear and trust in the process, you will find the magic you’ve been looking for.

I am so excited to roll out this cleansing adventure for you! I have developed a course in cleansing for the mind body and soul that has been a long time coming. It distills years of teaching, writing, and personal clearing into a program that I can now use to help other people.

Though every individual person will be affected differently by the “slow drip” of these messages, if you are willing to be open to the experiences that each message brings and stick with the process, I can assure you that you will be changed at the end of it.

These daily messages are like a time release fertiliser for the soul which are designed to build on each other so that they can help you to develop new habits that will expand exponentially and last a lifetime. If you’re interested in joining the group for $35 (less than $1 per week to change your life), or just in learning a little bit more about it, drop me a line and join me on this fabulous journey!
