At some point in our lives, we’ve all experienced synchronicities – coincidences in which highly improbable events occur. You’re thinking about an old friend that you haven’t seen in years, then receive a phone call from them a few seconds later. You have a sudden, unexplainable urge to visit a place you have never been to, then end up meeting the love of your life. Are such coincidences merely chance or is there something more at work? Lets take a look at a few notable coincidences and you can be the judge...
James Dean's car curse

In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky.
a) When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.

b) Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean's driveshaft fitted to it.

c) When James Dean's Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.

d) Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it's mount and broke a teenager's hip.

e) In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it's tow bar and smashed through the front of a shop.

f) Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports.

A bullet that reached its destiny years later..

Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate. In 1883, he broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide. The girl's brother was so enraged that he hunted down Ziegland and shot him. The brother, believing he had killed Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life. But Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet, in fact, had only grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely thought himself a lucky man. Some years later, however, Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland's head, killing him.

Just like Edgar Allan Poe's book

In the 19th century, the famous horror writer, Egdar Allan Poe, wrote a book called 'The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym'. It was about four survivors of a shipwreck who were in an open boat for many days before they decided to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name was Richard Parker. Some years later, in 1884, the yawl, Mignonette, foundered, with only four survivors, who were in an open boat for many days. Eventully the three senior members of the crew, killed and ate the cabin boy. The name of the cabin boy was Richard Parker.

Lets look at each of these terms, to get a better understanding...
Fate: Predetermined events, with implications of some underlying plan or logic. Generally used in relationship to larger events, often has supernatural undertones.
Coincidence: Two things lining up by meaningless chance.
Serendipity: Lucky or positive coincidence.
Destiny: Typically implying big and positive things fated for a given individual, although all those modifiers are optional.
Fortune: Typically means good luck, although there are overlaps with serendipity, fate and destiny.
One of my favorite quotes by Carl Jung, describes Coincidence as the following:

"The coming together of inner and outer events in a way that cannot be explained by cause and effect and that is meaningful to the observer."

And what does it mean? Are synchronicities signs? Messages? Clues? Do they tell us something about ourselves? Do they hold valuable keys to our lives? Can they impact our future? Give us direction? The answer is yes! To all the above...
Do you have a crazy coincidence that you want to share? Please do below!

The High Priestess is a very spiritual card - often with sexual overtones. This is a time to rely on your intuition and your inner knowledge, rather than your conscious mind or intellect. Pay attention to your dreams. Synchronicities are likely now. When the High Priestess appears in a man's reading, she also often represents a woman that he will want badly; but whom he may not be able to get.

What About Love Today: This can be a magical, mystical time for love. If you date women, you could well be interested in a woman who is distant and unapproachable. Trust your instincts. If you are a woman, you may well find people basically literally throwing themselves at you. Use this power wisely- it's potent!

Be sure to give me a call so that you can use this energy today correctly..

In reversal, the Chariot is still a card about movement. This movement can be literal from one physical place to another or metaphysical - a change in where you or someone close to you needs a change in their heart and/or mind.
The reversed Chariot can indicate that you need to take a hard look at where you are going and why. Don’t allow yourself to engage in movement just for the sake of movement. Purpose and direction is important at times.
What About Love

When the reversed Chariot appears, you may have come to the conclusion that you have met someone very special and that you need to push hard to get into this relationship… or vice versa, you are feeling as though you probably need to get out of one. In reversal, there’s a signal here that you should temper either impulse, especially that of pursuing a new relationship too enthusiastically. There’s a reason why they say “good things come to those who wait.” Don’t be afraid to wait!

I am not sure what tarot deck this pic is from, but it is pretty funny! lol

Imbolc is the Celtic day of Cailleach, she was known for gathering fire wood for the rest of the winter. Legend has it that if she intends to make the winter last a good while longer, she will make sure the weather on Imbolc is bright and sunny, so she can gather plenty of firewood to keep herself warm in the coming months.

As a result, people are generally relieved if it is a day of foul weather, as it means the Cailleach is asleep, she will soon run out of firewood, and therefore winter is almost over!

Today she is awake, gathering more wood, hence the groundhog saw his shadow

The 5 of Cups (water) is another card which reminds us that where we put our focus in life has a great deal to do with the quality of our lives and how well they work for us. What are you going to choose to focus on?

Today is a reminder to watch where you put your focus and make sure that the focus is for your highest good.

If you are trying to find work today, try not to get too worked up if there are delays. Things with applications, resumes, and such, will likely be moving slowly. Be pro-active but not pushy.
About love today: A relationship you are in may have just ended or may be about to start the process of ending. You must realize that "all is not lost." You are probably not yet ready to move into a new relationship. Give yourself some time and space…then get back out there. There will come a day when you realize that the reason this relationship ended was to get you to the place you "really want to be," which is in a relationship that really works for you, and works well.
Call me today to start focusing on what you really want in your life and how to achieve it!

The 7 of Cups is a card about choices and a need for INSIGHT. It often indicates confusion and can even also point to disorganization and too much going on. Today is a good day for self reflection!

This card points to a need to narrow your focus. Try not to do too much today. Choose just a few of the myriad things that are on your plate, and work through these items one by one, carefully. You may be feeling overwhelmed. Remember that you can control at least in some areas, how much you are trying to take on.

You may have several romantic choices at hand. Be clear and specific about what you want in a relationship, evaluate your choices thoughtfully, be honest and as clear as you can be with all people involved (including yourself) then move ahead. Beware falling in love with the "heady rush" that happens only at the beginning of a relationship. In no relationship does that rush last forever. Good relationships, even soul mate relationships, will settle into a less "rush-based" comfort zone at some point. That does not mean that you have to stay in a rut.

Happiness is a choice. Ok, so there are things out of our control that can affect our happiness, but how many of us approach the start of a new year filled with optimism, promising ourselves we are going to be happy? With lists of all the things you want to achieve and places you want to go (not to mention health and fitness goals), the beginning of a new year is a great time to start planning for the future - so many of us view January as a fresh start. We know lots of you will be starting a healthy diet, beginning a clean eating regime or working on your fitness as we approach the new year, but we don't want you to forget about your mental well-being and happiness too.

So here are a few handy new year's resolutions that will help you to be happier in the new year!
Put Yourself First
Put yourself first, because if you're happy and healthy then those around you will be happier too. Let's see how you can enjoy a happy, fruitful year, starting right now. Being altruistic (caring about others) is all well and good and you do need to look after your nearest and dearest, but what good are you to others if as a result you run your own health and happiness into the ground? We lead increasingly busy, hectic lifestyles but that doesn't mean you don't have five minutes in the day to relax and do something for yourself. Whether that's taking a bath with your favourite book, going for a run, heading to a yoga class or even just spending five minutes meditating before the kids get home from school, take a little time out of each day to do something that makes you feel good. So resolve to put yourself first this new year and we guarantee you'll feel healthier, and happier for it.
See the good in every situation
We can't control what happens to us in life, no matter how much of a control freak you are! But you can choose whether to view a situation positively or negatively. Of course, there are always going to be situations that it's impossible to view in a positive light, such as a bereavement, but for most other situations, you can find the silver lining. For example, if you're heartbroken after the breakup of a relationship, you'll probably need some time to come to terms with what's happened. Your life will be very different now, but think of all the things you can do! Maybe it wasn't the right relationship for you, and now you're free to go out there and meet the perfect person for you- it's an exciting time rather than a depressing one. By trying to turn a situation on its head and view the positives, you'll quickly find you adopt a more optimistic mindset - mindfulness can really help you to be happier.
Stop focusing on things, focus on experiences
All too often, we associate having the latest gadget or the fastest sports car with happiness. We focus on things rather than experiences, but it's not this which makes us happy. When you're old, it is the life experiences you'll remember - the people you met and the things you did - rather than what you had. It's normal to want nice things, but by focusing more on spending your money on socializing and experiences, you'll find you are far happier.
Try new things
Make this year, the year you try new things! From the little things, like trying food you've never tasted before or going to that new Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, to big things like going on a round-the-world trip, volunteering abroad or signing up to a fitness challenge, trying new things is incredibly beneficial for your health, happiness and confidence. Once you know what you're capable of, your self-esteem will receive a real boost, and trying new things can boost your energy levels and get endorphins flowing, leaving you feeling excited and happy. Whatever you've always wanted to do, make 2018 the year you do it!
Draw up a budget
Life isn't all about money, but in order to be able to socialize and have exciting new experiences, you do need at least a bit of cash! By drawing up a budget in January, you can work out what your essential outgoings, or living expenses (such as rent, bills etc) cost. Netflix is not an essential outgoing; although for some of us it might feel like it at times! This allows you to work out how much money you have left every month for socializing, travelling etc. By saving some money on months when you have more, you'll always have plenty put aside for times you need a boost. So next time there's a party happening or a night out with friends, you won't have to turn down invitations because you're short of cash.
Carve Out Time For Passions
Whether it is gardening, playing games, cooking, or hiking, make time for the things you enjoy. It is easy to get so busy with work and family that we forget to nurture our souls. By making time to do what brings us joy and makes us feel alive, we will feel much better about the things that don't bring us all that joy! A great way to create more time for the things we love, is to regularly go through your calendar and eliminate anything that is not extremely important to you.
Get more sleep and exercise.
I know, that’s not one resolution, it’s two, but the science around these physical happiness boosters is pretty compelling. Studies are clear: You’ll be less stressed, less sick, and less grouchy in the New Year if you get more shut-eye. Try increasing your sleep 10 minutes a night for a week, and then another 10 the next week, and so on until you are regularly getting your eight hours.

If you aren’t active, you want to lose a few pounds, or you frequently feel a bit depressed, try adding more activity into your life in a way that feels fun or luxurious. I like to hike with my friend Jen and her ecstatically joyful dog Lou. It takes a couple hours out of my day (that’s the luxurious part, since I’m so strapped for time) but it leaves me feeling as bright and happy as Lou. On days when I don’t have time for a hike, I walk on a treadmill while watching Modern Family. This is luxurious and fun because I don’t watch TV at any other time.

It is miraculous to me that people can change themselves simply because they want to. New Year’s resolutions are an amazing act of creation, an art form where the canvas is the self.

Please be sure to leave a comment of any resolution you have to offer or like to do.. Thanks

The 2 of Cups often refers to romantic partnership..

Today is a good day to reflect on what is going right in your relationship. We tend to focus on what is wrong and what upsets us, but we have to remember to look at the positives as well. In general this is a card that says that things are likely to be going smoothly. You should be feeling more than usually loved, cared for, and content. Embrace this feeling. Remember it, when times are tough.

This card can represent true love, balanced partnership, commitment, and all of the things that most of us hope for in regard to love and relationship. However, this does not mean that you can just do or say "whatever" and that your love/relationship will last; it only means that the underpinnings, the real, solid, potential for true love and affection is there. If you are "looking for love," this is a signal that it is very likely to be headed your way very soon. Relax.
Be sure to give me a call to see what love has in store for you !

Hope you had a chance to catch the Super Blood Moon Eclipse

I was up doing healing work last night and was able to catch this beautiful event..... Enjoy!
The Moon indicates that things may seem somewhat confusing to you now. You may find it hard to understand where you are coming from, much less what others are thinking and feeling! You need to try to sit with the uncertainty, don't try to force things or people to do things before they are ready. This card is the "Pisces" of the tarot deck.
Today you are definitely in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don't know where they are coming from. Also, not that you need to be mistrusting, but it will be helpful for you to realize that when this card appears, it's possible that all is not what it seems. If you feel you can't trust someone, then you probably can't. Go with your gut. If you are waiting on an answer from someone, it may, unfortunately, take longer than you would like for it to. Try to stay patient.

Love: This card points to a highly emotional time in love relationships. Things can quickly become heated and/or uncomfortable. Take a break if you need to. Don't make assumptions, and fight fairly, if you're going to fight. Pick your battles and be sure to treat your lover like a friend. Don't be in a hurry to end or to begin a relationship. This is probably not the best time for either course of action.

Have you ever met Debbie Downer, Negative Nancy or Pessimistic Patty? These people can be so entrenched in the bad things that there isn’t any room for good things to grow. They inhabit our families and social circles. It can be emotionally draining just being around them, and you must be careful because their attitudes are contagious. Negativity perpetuates itself, breeds dissatisfaction and clutters the mind. And when the mind is cluttered with negativity, happiness is much harder to come by.
Here are a few ways to defend yourself against negative people and negative thinking:
1. Don’t take other people’s negativity personally. Most negative people behave negatively not just to you, but to everyone they interact with. What they say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own attitude. Even when a situation seems personal – even if someone insults you directly, it oftentimes has nothing to do with you. Remember, what others say and do, and the opinions they have, are based entirely on their own self-reflection.
2. Spend more time with positive people. You are the average of the people you spend the most time with. In other words, who you spend your time with has a great impact on the person you eventually become. If you are around cynical and negative people all the time, you will become cynical and negative. Does who you are and who you want to be reflect in the company you keep? Start spending time with nice people who are smart, driven and likeminded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be.
3. Change the way you think. The one thing nobody can take away from you is the way you choose to respond to what others say and do. The problem isn’t the events that are negative. The problem is the way you react to those events. The last of your freedoms is to choose your attitude in any given circumstance. Complaining, blaming and criticizing aren’t going to change the situation. It is not always easy to find happiness in ourselves, but it is always impossible to find it elsewhere. Regardless of the situation you face, your attitude is your choice. Remember, you can’t have a positive life with a negative attitude. When negativity controls your thoughts, it limits your behavior, actions, and opportunities. If you realized how powerful your thoughts were, you would never think another negative thought again.
4. Love whoever is around to be loved. Practice acts of kindness. It’s a lot harder to be negative when you’re in the presence of love and kindness. Be that presence whenever possible. Let your guard down. Talk to someone you don’t know straight from your heart. Compliment them. Don’t anticipate awkwardness. Just be you in that beautiful way only you know, and give them the chance to smile and connect with you. Sometimes a kind word and some attention from a friend is all that’s needed to turn a negative attitude around.
5. Realize that life is a series of ups and downs. Acknowledge the negativity, accept it, and let it pass through your consciousness, thereby teaching you a lesson but not ruining your day. Life is full of highs and lows, but you don’t have to go up and down with them. We develop from the negatives when we accept them and learn from them. This cycle is all part of the human experience. Relax, let go a little, and enjoy the ride.
6. Let go and move on when you must. If all else fails, remove yourself from the wrong situations and relationships. Some people are like dark clouds; when they disappear, it’s a brighter day. Know when it’s time to let go. Letting go of negative people doesn’t mean you hate them, it just means that you care about your own wellbeing. Every time you subtract negative from your life, you make room for more positive.
It isn’t easy to remain positive when negativity surrounds you, but remember that you have full control of your attitude. Think of it this way: An entire body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, all the negativity in the world can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside your head. People who are able to discern the positive points in negative situations are the ones who prosper in the long run. So defend yourself against the negativity and make room for a positive day.
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
Today we are reminded to GO TO WORK!

The 8 of Pentacles (8 of Earth, The Mountain) can indicate a period of very hard work. This does not have to be a negative thing, but you must be prepared for it. Think about what it is that you are working for. This work can be personal or professional. Be prepared to ask for help if you need it. Today you may be thinking you have a lot on your plate, but with dedication to the tasks at hand, you can accomplish a lot. Remember to be clear on what you are trying to accomplish. Strive for balance, and prioritize.

As for love: If you are currently committed, your workload or that of your partner may be interfering with the relationship. Make a point to make time and space for the relationship regardless of your jobs, otherwise things will suffer. If you are looking for love, the appearance of this card often tells us that you are actually too focused on money and what you do for a living to really create space in your life for a new relationship. Consider your priorities and where your time and energy goes. If you want love, make sure you have room for it.

Be sure to give me a call so that I can help you find the right path...

Be serene in knowing you are succeeding in your goal. Today's card suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible. All things are possible today...

The World card (the universe) may be giving you permission to do whatever you want. Presently, your motivation is close to the will of the divine. Even if you commit an error, it will be turned to the greater good. Stay active and just keep moving forward. It is unnecessary to keep checking or interrupting your spontaneity with calculation. Rather than look for consensus or affirmation from others, simply dance the dance. In other words, express yourself, react naturally, and let the chips fall where they may.

We find out how strong we are in the moments of uncertainty life inevitably gives us. The unplanned events, layoffs, death, disease, family fallouts, breakups or divorce – can come crashing into our world at any moment. Then the questionable life changes crop up. Should I stay or should I go? Should I buy or save? Should I forgive or forget? Should I move or not? The shoulds become a thirsty internal craving as we try to process the best outcome for our life.

The problem? In doing this, we often hold onto what no longer works. I have a friend who is in a negative situation, and she's hanging on for dear life because she wants to be brave and tough it out. She told me, “Giving up is not an option,” which so many of us believe. But when holding on to something hurts our health and potential to be happy, we have to look closely at why we're choosing to stay.

Life is a balance of holding on and letting go. We strive to make the right choice but how do we know when it is truly time to let go and move on? Romantic relationships, jobs, even places we live have an expiration date. Sometimes we hold on to things that aren’t working out of fear we won’t find something better.

Perhaps our greatest fear is the unknown, which is why so many of us grasp, hold on and manipulate our situations trying to control our surroundings. But the outcome is always the same: more pain, immense frustration and ginormous guilt and blame. To avoid the toxic outburst of staying in situations that no longer serve you, ask yourself if any of the following signs apply.

Signs It's Time To Let Go And Move On
1. When your thoughts go to memories more than the present.
2. When the situation causes you more pain than joy.
3. When you expect, hope and plead for the person, place or situation to change.
4. When you become complacent, bored or resentful.
5. When the pattern persists even though you tried to fix it.
6. When you feel alone, unheard or disrespected.
7. When the situation is holding you back from growing and being who you want to be.
8. When you stay, hoping and expecting things to get better.
9. When you cry more than you laugh and love.
10. When you feel exhausted emotionally, spiritualty and physically.
11. When you have lost your passion and joy.
12. When you core beliefs and values have changed and you sacrifice who you are.
13. When you stop having fun.
14. When you fear this is the best it will be.
15. When you force a smile to mask the pain.
16. When you lose who you are and stop dreaming.
17. When you hold on out of fear of the unknown.
18. When you sense you are holding onto something meant to be let go.
19. When the thought of being free of the situation feels expansive.
20. When you believe in a better life for yourself.
This list serves as a compassionate guide to help you make the right choice for you. If you found yourself saying yes to the majority of these questions, it may be time for you to take a step forward and let go. Trust your future and know you will be guided to happiness.

Today's card, 4 of Earth, can be a card about holding on to things, people, money, or situations longer than is healthy or realistic. When this card appears in a reading, it's a sure sign that you must look carefully at what you are clinging to, and whether others are clinging to you in an unhealthy way. Relax. It can also point to anxiety/fear about money and/or a clinging to whatever it is that makes you feel secure. The key here is to try to realize that being anxious and grasping does NOT bring security. If any card in the Tarot relates to the old saying about "If you love something set it free…" this is the one.

LOVE? Today's card about fear, basically, when it comes to love. Either you are holding on far too tight to a situation or lover, or someone is attempting to do that to you. This clinging is not healthy. True love allows for space between the lovers, and no matter what, one can never really control another person. If you are single and think that you are ready for a relationship, realize that you will undoubtedly have to step outside your comfort zone to make it happen. True love will not just drop out of the sky.
