Neptune Direct

Today (4th November), the last of the celestial trio in the Sacred Dance moves direct. Neptune is the most subtle and mysterious energy of the three and his effects may not seem very obvious to even the most sensitive souls amongst us. Neptune has spent the last few months taking each of us on an inner journey, and this journey has been to the heights and depths within. Emotionally this has been challenging to say the least, but this has not just been a frivolous exercise as Neptune has been asking each of us to let go of those issues

All Souls Day (El dia de los muertos)

Following on from the Pagan celebration of All Hallows Eve… Many ancient and indigenous cultures throughout the world have honoured and worked with their ancestors for millennia. From the Native Americans to tribal Africans to pagan and Nordic cultures, the ancestors were just as important as the living. Try visiting ancient stone burial mounds – you can sense the voices from the past. The Day of the Dead is celebrated on the 1st November at this time in Mexico – here, an altar is made for the ancestors – this is highly decorated with flowers (bright marigolds), photos and offerings

All Hallow’s Eve

This is just one of many names for the 31st October – Hallowe’en, All Souls Night and Samhain to name but a few. This is a festival of remembrance and a feast to celebrate the dead. It marks the end of the year in the Celtic Calender. There is nothing macabre about celebrating the dead, it is about honouring those who lived before. On this day the veils between the two worlds is very thin, making it an important time to communicate with our ancestors and also for divination. In the Northern Hemisphere, this comes at a time of darkness,

Chiron Goes Direct…

On the 31st October, one of the trio entwined in the Sacred Dance – Chiron – moves direct. Chiron is the planet of the wounded healer, and he helps each of us to seek strength from within, to learn from our experiences, to take positives from negatives and to find our healing gifts. Whilst in retrograde, Chiron has been helping each of us to focus on those ‘wounds’ or experiences in life which seem to have happened for a ‘reason’. It is often those experiences (and sadly they are usually traumatic) where we can find the true source of our

Saturn In Libra

This week (29th October) sees Saturn moving into the sign of balance – Libra. The last time Saturn was in Libra was in the early 1980’s and how things have changed since the days of shoulder pads, the miner’s strike, leg warmers, big hair, who shot JR, Lady Di and that wedding, the Rubiks Cube, the launch of personal computers and the Nuclear Threat. Saturn often has a bad reputation; he is the planet that so many people dread. He was of course described as the Greater Malefic – the Big Baddie, which reflected his reputation as a planet of

The Sacred Dance….

The celestial dance between Neptune, Jupiter and Chiron continues as each of these planets move direct. Jupiter has already made the move, and Chiron and Neptune will follow over the next couple of weeks. I take this opportunity to reflect upon some of the words that have come to me as this Dance has continued: ‘These planets seem to be paving the way for a transformational and joyous time. They will release a huge surge of transformational energy out into the cosmos for each of us to bathe in. This is truly a special time, and we would all be

Living Magically…

I have recently seen the best and worst in human behaviour. I have been well and truly lodged in the mundane. I have felt saddened that we seem to live in such a judgemental world – the media guides opinions and prejudices, and individuals seem so entrenched in keeping up appearances and following the masses, that free thinking and individual colour is disappearing. I choose to see the good in people, as I believe that good thoughts feed good things. Negative beliefs, feed the negative. The recent shift of Jupiter to a forward flowing energy has created a need to

Infinity and beyond…

Jupiter finally moves direct this week (on the 13th), and this mighty planet will have quite an impact on all of us! You may recall that he is one of a trio of planets that have been dancing around one another this year in Aquarius (the others being Chiron and Neptune). I have called this the Sacred Dance for many reasons. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, and for the past few months his energy has been internalised allowing each of us to explore the abundance within and to re-focus on our paths ahead. There is also a

Cosmic Babbling…

Being on the verge of a life-changing, life-altering decision it’s hard to not over-read the messages of the planets. These celestial ‘know-it-all’s’ know not only what is, but also what’s been and what’s coming as well. Writing the Planet Whisperer Blog I often think of my own life situations and how it fits me at the moment, which I guess is the point. But after advising everyone not to shoot the messenger (see previous entry), I began to analyse this in context with the afore-mentioned life-altering decision. It worried me! I started to wonder if I wouldn’t hear the news
