Summertime News

July 4, 2016

You might be wondering “what happened to June”? Me too. The month went so fast.

I was travelling in June I was in London, England with hubby for a week. We had so much fun. We were in Hyde Park and a parade went by. I am assuming it was just for me, the reality is they were rehearsing for the Queens birthday celebration. Then I was speaking at the London Tarot Festival, a beautiful venue with lots of lovely people, it was so good to connect and work with friends. Kim Arnold always runs a world class event, it was truly an honour to work with her this time around.

After London I went for a week to Birchington on Sea, this small town is on the South East coast of the UK. My hostess and her hubby, Cathi and Peter Bew treated me like royalty. Kim and Cathi took me exploring. I discovered to pleasures of UK bingo,(what no letters, numbers only). Then one day off to the wonderful magical shell grotto. A truly special place. One day we were off to the delights of Canterbury, with its majestic cathedral, lunch on Martin and the luxuries of shopping at Primark!! I love Primark and Poundland!! Just saying. I had the best pizza in England one night, with wine!! Kim cooked a sumptuous feast, with wine!! Peter cooked so many amazing meals that I am surprised they did not charge me for two seats on the train. I have amazing people in my life and I am proud to call them friends.

Who know that I would have to travel 7 hours by plane and 4 hours by train to see my good friend Jane who only really lives 2.5 hours away from me. But she is off living in the Uk for a time being. So after Birchington I got on a train to Bury St. Edmunds.
There I caught up with Jane and Fish and Chips (her Jack Russell Terriers) It was interesting to go out for dinner to have fish n chips and then take home the leftovers to Fish and Chips. Which they did enjoy!! I met Jane’s Aunt Cath, who welcomed me to her home with balloons, black, purple and silver balloons to be exact. The next day there was a garden party with all kinds of people I was able to share my gifts of tarot, mediumship and psychic ability. I explored the market town of Bury and met a number of lovely people. I also got to see Fish and Chips perform at agility training, those dogs performed very well and never ever take their eyes off of Jane.

Off to London once again for a quick stop in with my friend Ricky and a Curry dinner. Then my flight home. All in all a wonderful trip just way way to short.

You have a great optimism, and energy, now is the time for your happiness. Your sexual energy is at its peak and there may well be the birth of a child. Your health is good and you are feeling energetic. You find courage in the simplest things in life. Your forcefulness and your enthusiasm is the start of something exciting.

Aquarius ~ Six of Wands ~The Six of Wands is a turning point, now is the time to plan your victory parade. You will be an inspiration to others.

Take time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. This is a good time to negotiate. And when the Six of Wands appear it is a good omen legally.

Pisces ~ The Wheel of Fortune ~The wheel of Fortune is a mystery of nature, the human ability to destroy. It indicates luck equals fate. This card is the halfway point of the major arcana.
The wheel of Fortune is a change in circumstance and a person life; it offers the opportunity to find meaning in a situation. It is often a stroke of luck or a turn for the better. The workings are a mystery but beneficial, current issues are at an end. There are small pieces of luck and good news on the horizon. However it is important to remember that what goes up must come down. This is a temporary phase of life. Right now we are riding high on fate, but not on initiative. This means it is time to be prudent and put things away for a rainy day. It indicates risk, fate and chance. Life offers ups and downs we have no control over these. The power of change is the movement of the universe cannot stop change. The only thing that is certain in life is change itself. We must accept the change around our own changes, and us but outsold by the place that we can centre and ground and regroup.
The card shows the spinning wheel of destiny and fate. We cannot stress enough that nothing is certain in life but change itself. And be sure to remember that what goes up will always come down.

Aries ~ ten of pentacles ~ The Ten of Pentacles means that we have taken our security and wealth for granted. Things have become boring and stifling. We may have lost or given up our communication with some or all of our family members. Things have become mundane and we are missing the magic in life and nature. The meaning is to be nice to all. You never know when you will turn away wealth, comfort and security.
We have made the choice of emotional and material security over risk. Family life will be rich and values and beliefs will be passed generation to generation.

Cancer ~ Two of Wands ~ Well success at last, you are holding the world in your hands. But look you stand-alone; you are walled off from others. Your world has shrunk by choice. Although you are quite the visionary, you need to seek some wisdom. You have influence, authority and control, but over what? Do not let you ambition dominate. You have strength in you courage and pride. This is the time for a great partnership, which will assure prosperity and success. You have come to realize your great potential.

Leo ~ The Empress~ The Empress represents the archetypal mother. She nurtures and protects all of her creation.

She is beautiful inside and out, she takes pleasure in the successes of others, she has the joy of life and is a muse. She takes action impulsively, and is completely faithful; she is the woman as ruler.

Virgo ~Nine of Swords ~ When the Nine of Swords appears in a reading it is a time of deep sorrow and pain. The agony and anxiety are leaving us feeling helpless as this is not happening to us but to someone that we love. They have become a victim of spirit. We will have sleepless nights and feel undermined we may even feel guilty and punish ourselves. This is a wakeup call; one must accept things in order to progress to hope.

Do not feel shamed or guilty, you have become a victim of mental cruelty.

Libra ~ Ace of Swords ~ The Aces are break through. This is a card where you are discovering your true intellect and perceptions.
