If you haven’t already felt it, the moon is waxing towards full in Sagittarius on Saturday May 21st, bringing forth inspiration and growth in a huge way. As Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of aspirations and adventure, now is the perfect time to wave goodbye to negative patterns and welcome in a new you.
Our dreams can tell us a lot about our waking life. My fave psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, believed that dreams were a way of tapping into our unconscious and that while most dreams are very personal, some have a more mythical, symbolic quality that can only be explained through knowledge of the collective unconscious.
Today is Friday the 13th – cue bad luck, black cats and hockey masked murderers. I’ve already had my computer crash today and spent the entire morning reinstalling Windows *sigh* - though it’s not really surprising with the current Mercury Retrograde transit coupled with our fateful Friday 13th – it’s a double whammy of bad luck – deeelightful!
So it’s Mercury Retrograde again, that time of year when everything seemingly goes a bit mental, technology gives up and we all generally feel a bit frazzled, but instead of worrying and blaming that damn planet up there, maybe we could try something different this time?
It’s official, witches are back in. Can I hear a hallelujah? From television to music, fashion and even social media. The world’s gone mad with magical powers and I for one am hyped, but not just for the social acceptance and spooky vibes. There’s a deeper reason for my delight at this witchy revolt, and it involves us ladies.
I’ve probably got hundreds of years of wise women turning in their graves as I type this but despite all the esoteric mystery and spooky imagery surrounding them, tarot cards really aren’t that great at fortune telling, and any card reader that tells you something is definitely going to happen based on the tarot is as fake as Derek Acorah’s hairpiece.
I’m hearing the word “empath” being thrown around a lot at the moment, from Buzzfeed’s ‘This is What it’s Like to Be an Empath’ to quizzes on whether you are indeed an empath or actually a narcissist in disguise, wreaking havoc on the new age scene with your fake smiles and crocodile tears – oh the horror!
March was a bit of a slow burner wasn’t it? But then, so was February… and January. In fact, I think I speak for a lot of us when I say this whole year hasn’t exactly got off to a flying start, but all that is changing now as the sun moves into Aries.
