Week of January 22-January 28, 2018
Dear Tribe of Stargazers: How do we study astrology? We study it piece by enticing piece, with the tantalizing foreknowledge that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. We study the meanings of the planets, signs, houses, and angles – thus learning to express ourselves in a poetic yet practical language with which to make sense of life.


This week, let’s pick a couple of astrological events and strive to transcribe it into everyday language: 1> Around Jan. 23rd-25th, Mercury conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. Hmmm, you think to yourself, what could it mean? And what could it mean for you? 2> Another phenomenon this week is the Mars ingress into Sagittarius around January 27th. Hmmm again (thoughtful silence). If any one of you could give me the most meaningful personal significance of any or both of these aspects by writing about it in the comments section below, then WATCH OUT! You will win a two-card reading from me!!! How would you know that it was you who won? Well, if you check the page daily, you’d know, right? So come write home to Momma.
PLEASE LIKE, COMMENT, AND SHARE! Happy birthday to the Aquarius-born among our ka-Tribu. Salamat po!
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) There is molten lava within you, waiting to be violently exploded and thrown up in the air. Yes, the scenario hints at destruction which may “scare” even you. However, this can be a necessary prequel to magnificent creation. Weekly mantra: I awaken to express my glorious potential.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Have you been riddled the Riddle of the Sphinx? To be queried this riddle by such an imposing half-female half-animal creature, in whatever form it may come in your life, may seem challenging enough. The thing, though, is to never lose your courage and keep charging on until you get the correct answer. Weekly mantra: I know the answer to the Riddle.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Divine Spirit says that you’ve been cooped up too long. The logical solution would be to head out to the great outdoors and feel the wind lift up your hair and heart! Come on, even the most urban concrete jungle has green spaces. Inhale the invigorating oxygen and exhale your worries and fears. You’ve got this. Weekly mantra: The Divine lifts my soul and spirit.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) Whenever you hear a guru say that this world is just an illusion, you actually get it. However, you also instinctively know that the illusion is simply a matter of lifting up veils from your line of vision. Until when will you live with the illusion? You are the only one who gets to decide that. Weekly mantra: Although dreaming, I’m awake.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) You’re an adult now, so the long and short message of this week is this: Take responsibility already! You are responsible for your own financial upkeep, happiness, and implications of maturity. No fair blaming genes, illness, or the environment you grew up in. Just stick that chin up and take it. Welcome to the adult world. Weekly mantra: I hold myself accountable.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) What do you do when a proverbial monster has just turned its head and spotted you? Well, for lack of anything else (a weapon, a special power, etc.), you can always scream! You’d probably scare the creeper off, anyway. The point is this: at the other side of the fear you fear is deliverance. Face your fears, voice them out, own them. You might just stumble upon a strength you never thought you had. Weekly mantra: My courage feeds my strength.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Know this: it is within your power to help yourself get healthy or get sick. What they call your will power is actually the co-Creator within you who stands in agreement with Divine Spirit, making you well and whole. If you find that you can facilitate another’s self-healing, then share your healing energy. Weekly mantra: I am my own health and wellness.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) What, truly, is the best way to handle anger and rage? Many approaches come to mind, but keep in mind that as with anything, anger and rage are in a spectrum of energy. Match them with the fluctuating responses that they seem to demand, and watch the ferocity eventually die down. Weekly mantra: With my flexibility, I achieve homeostasis.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) You are high on the wings of ecstasy, creativity, and desire. It seems like you’ve reached the pinnacle of your aspirations – but with you, your lookout is always about that highest ideal that your bow and arrow can still shoot for. Therefore revel in all that you achieve; just don’t forget to pour a cup of libation to your roots. Weekly mantra: Oh! Life is beautiful! I love my life!
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) You have been many personae to many people. However, something deep within you is crying out for selfhood right about now. This is your power to carve out a future for yourself. This is your time to hunt, gather, collect, and store. In short, this is the time for your tall, capital Self to stand out from the crowd. Make it happen. Weekly mantra: Before I am anyone else’s, I am my own.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) If someone ever thought that Aquarians are airheads just because they are assigned to the Air element, she has another think coming. Aquarius people know a thing or two about power, but they are crafty and subtle about it. Some of them think it’s too much of game-playing, though, and thus focus on the altruism and service instead. Still, Aquarius packs a lot of punch. They just choose to use their extensive powers for good. Weekly mantra: I understand that with great power comes great responsibility (first attributed to Voltaire, NOT to Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben).
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) This period is productively pregnant for you. Your wisdom is like a gushing fountain and your creativity is going through the roof. As always, when the direction of your inspiration is skyward, just don’t forget to ground yourself. Walk barefoot, wear black or brown-colored crystals… any method there is as long as there is an element of Earth in it. Weekly mantra: My name is Terra Sophia. I am the wisdom of the earth.
Thank you, Salamat, Namaste, and Blessed be!

This January 16th, the New Moon is in the late degrees of Capricorn. Like you always hear me saying, The New Moon is a time for setting new intentions. In Capricorn, make your new intentions all about family, material resources, professional ambitions, and personal perseverance.

This week’s readings are partially sourced from “The Goddess Oracle” by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and illustrated by Hrana Janto (© 1997, 2006) and partially the results of my channeling the Angels and the Diwatas.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) Have you been taught that pleasure is sinful, something evil and forbidden? The goddess Hathor, on the other hand, wants you to realize that you are housed in a body, so you might as well get used to pampering your mortal lodging. Hathor governed all bodily pleasures: sound, music, song, dance, art, love, and touch. Get in touch with the goddess Hathor within you. Weekly mantra: I connect with the resources that make me feel whole.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) The goddess Ix Chel is your muse for creativity. Really, she is urging you to be creative now! Ix Chel presides over the waters of creation, weaving, magic, health and healing, sexuality, and childbirth. With Ix Chel’s creative rulerships. she is showing you the way to wholeness. Weekly mantra: I honor the abilities that make me whole.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Brigid is Celtic triple-goddess of fire, the fire of inspiration, smithcraft, poetry, healing, and divination. These days, You need a mega-dose of inspiration to brighten up your life and put the verve back to your performance of even your most mundane tasks. Call upon Brigid for that inspirational flame! Weekly mantra: My life is the best poetry there is.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) Gyhldeptis is the “lady hanging hair” of the Tlingit and Haida peoples of the northwest North American. With her powers, she was able to turn a destructive whirlpool into a river. You have similar powers of synthesis now that the goddess asks you to utilize. Weekly mantra: I synthesize disparate elements in order to create beauty and peace.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Yemaya is the goddess of the sea in the Santeria African-Caribbean tradition. Her followers dress in white and throw her offerings through the sea. This is symbolic of someone’s surrender, a humble attitude of heart that Yemaya honors by hearing the follower’s petition. Weekly mantra: I surrender all of me and let Divine Spirit.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) Oya is a most powerful Yoruban deity of the weather, ruling over lightning, tornadoes, destructive rainstorms and fires. The message for you, Virgo, is be courageous enough to let change sweep through your life, instead of being petrified by fear and indecision. Weekly mantra: I welcome all positive changes in my life.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Sedna is the Inuit goddess of the sea with a rather tragic story. Even so, what you must remember is that unlike Sedna, you can stop being a victim. In Sedna’s tale, her cut-off fingers transformed into the fish and mammals which the Inuit hunt or food. Weekly mantra: I transform my tragedy into victory.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) Pachamama was revered by the pre-Incan people as The Earth in many forms: its mountains, rivers, the air. When Pachamama calls to you, you go embrace the Earth and come back to where you began, in solemn reverence. Weekly mantra: I honor my oneness with the Earth, with respect and admiration.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) The goddess Freya is the Nordic symbol of fun, freedom, and sexuality. I hasten to add that there is nothing wrong with sexuality within certain parameters among consenting adults. In short, enjoy without shame, love without blame. Weekly mantra: I will use my powers for freedom with care.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Nut, being the Egyptian goddess of the night sky, are adorned with stars and moon, sure to make an impression over the firmament she guards by embracing it. Nut’s embrace is a combination of the darkness and the lights in the sky. You are no stranger to these scenarios, but this time you may literally see the light. Weekly mantra:
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Demeter, the Greek Mother goddess, ruled over agriculture, social institutions, and the mystery of the rites of Eleusis. However, when her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades into the underworld, all felt the rage of Demeter when she commanded frost to cover the entire world. Weekly mantra: I face my fiercest emotions honestly.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) Isis is the Egyptian example of motherhood. When Set, Osiris’ brother killed Osiris, Isis went about gathering all the pieces and with her magic, conceived Horus with her tragically killed husband. This is the time for you to attend to the “mothering” of a child, project, or something recently conceived. Weekly mantra: I creatively nurture that which was appointed to me.
Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be!

Week of January 8-14, 2018
Dear Tribe of Stargazers:
Gandang araw, mga Ka-Tribu kong Stargazers! One of our guest astrologers at our January 2018 NCGR-SF gathering was Mr. Rio Olesky who, apart from having an impressive academic and astrological background, is an accomplished didgeridoo player as well. His handout, called “Rio’s Retrograde Reminders 2018,” is full of practical information on how we can best harness each of the energies of the retrograding planets, rather than being intimidated by them.


Mr. Olesky says this for January 2, “Uranus turns direct in Aries. It’s a new year and a good time to implement actions that could bring revolutionary change in your life. This could pertain to material plane activities or simply being more self-affirming in the expression of your authentic self in social situations.”


Huh?!Ano raw? Gusto lang pong tukuyin ni Mr. Olesky na kapag derecho na ang ikot ng Uranus sa Aries, ito ay parang “bagong taon” at bagong pagkakataon upang umaksyon na para sa ikapagbabago nang husto ng iyong buhay. Sabi pa nga ni Mr. Olesky, umaksyon ka para dumating ang rebolusyonaryong pagbabago sa iyong buhay! Ito raw ay maaaring patungkol sa mga gawaing materyal o di kaya’y magkaroon ka ng ibayong pagpapahalaga sa sarili sa iyong paglalahad ng iyong tunay na pagkatao sa mga sitwasyon ng pakikisalamuha..

TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) The stars are urging you to be more friendly an amiable this week. Almost like magic, you are able to recognize traits in common with another to forge love-based connections. Weekly mantra: I am approachable and friendly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Gemini, you have come into your own, for you have discovered “vision.” No matter what, you see the bigger picture of a loving, just Universe. Never again shall you be short-sighted. Weekly mantra: I can see clearly now, far into the Universe’s entirety.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) You are aware of the power of your thoughts and the amount of love you express. You feel that you have a responsibility towards those you love and nurture. Even so, find the lighter side of your tasks. Weekly mantra: My powers lie in love and laughter.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Freedom becomes paramount for you this week. You are releasing restrictions or perceived limitations through the loving energy of openness. Weekly mantra: I allow love and compassion to be my guide.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) If someone hurt you, forgive. If someone made you happy, return the favor. The key word here is “elevation,” meaning that you must consciously decide to raise your vibration of love. Weekly mantra: I have fun and delight in my journey to make others happy.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) R-E-S-P-E-C-T, goes a particularly lively song. At this point, you are learning to value everyone’s unique perspective on the path of love. No one gets to lord it over the proceedings; respect listens to all and values all. Weekly mantra: Respect is the path to love.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) “Patience” is a quality known to you but you sometimes don’t practice. With it, you are able to let the Universal energy of transformation move according to its own loving rhythm. Weekly mantra: All I need is just a little patience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) It’s not like you to control situations and people. At this point you are ready to release such control and lovingly embrace the rhythm of life. Weekly mantra: I open my generous heart in acceptance of all life.

How are you able to forgive just so? You yourself have been forgiven once, many times. Weekly mantra: I forgive, just as I had been forgiven.


Thank you, Maraming salamat, Namaste, and Blessed be!

Week of January 1-7, 2018

Dear Tribe of Stargazers: Isang Masagana at Pinagpalang Bagong Taon sa ating lahat! A Prosperous and Blessed New Year to all of us! First of all, thank you very much to the 2,366 followers (and counting) of the Stargazer Bles Facebook Page. In 2017, you inspired, challenged, intrigued, and strengthened me. Thank you for your trust, love, and support, mga Ka-Tribu! Let’s grow our partnership further in 2018!

The biggest astrological phenomenon this week is that on New Year’s Day 2018 itself, we have a Full Moon in Cancer, the sign it rules, that’s also a Supermoon. Now we already know about Full Moons, but what is a Supermoon? According to the dictionary, a Supermoon is “the phenomenon whereby the moon appears particularly large in the sky owing to the coincidence of its closest approach to the earth (the perigee) with a full (or new) moon.” In effect, the manifestation energy available for you is tremendously intense. With the Cancer Moon (emotions, psyche, ocean tides, bodily rhythms) literally close to the Earth, you may find yourselves extra-sensitive and open to subconscious suggestions. Only use these forces for good, and may your Full Super Moon experiences be positive and life-affirming

Now this: A preview of major exciting Astronomical events in 2018 can be found by clicking on the link below, which features the video, “Astronomy Calendar for 2018” by Hashem Al-Ghaili:…

Happy 2018, mga Ka-Tribu! Sana po ay patuloy ninyo akong samahan dito sa ating daang nilalakbay na kung tawagin ay Buhay. May you continue to join me in this journeypath called Life. Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be! Amen, and so it is.



ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) Your life purpose involves helping Mother Nature, including recycling, cleaning up the environment, or even the nurture of crystals and stones. You are also interested in manifesting money or some other material support. The fairies will help you do this as long as you assist the Earth they so love. Weekly mantra: With the fairies, I am in touch with my earthly powers.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Vishudda, Sanskrit for “especially pure,” is how the Hindus call the throat, or fifth primary, chakra. The throat chakra is about lovingly speaking your truth, in which the angels are especially guiding you now. This is also a prompt for creative self-expression, so ask for the help of Archangel Gabriel, the Messenger and Prime Announcer of Truth, to guide your artistic efforts. Weekly mantra: I speak my truth lovingly and assertively.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) With the New Year comes the opportunity for you let go of what no longer serves you or your purpose. Work with Archangel Michael and ask him to help you cut the cords of any toxic attachments to people, situations, and even your own ego. Ask yourself, “What do I need to release to be fully on my path and purpose?” Weekly mantra: Deep down, I know what I need to release and also what I need to take in to fulfill my Divine mission here on Earth.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) This week, the Cancerian focus is about your parents and yourself as a parent. The Divine truth is that your parents eternally love you to the best of their ability. Ask the angels to help you heal of any pain associated with your mother or father. If one of them is in Heaven right now, then your parent is saying “I love you” to you right now. Weekly mantra: My parents loved me the best way they could, and I would do the same as a parent to my children.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) First of all, you are powerful. Second, it is safe for you to use your powers in responsible, loving ways. The angels also want to remind you that no one else is controlling you, or can control you, without your permission. Real power is not about aggression but simply being authentic with yourself and others. Weekly mantra: It is safe for me to be powerful and take charge of my life in positive ways.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) What’s familiar to most Virgos are the science and art of teaching and learning. With your keen analytical mind and natural love of self-education, you need not be told to get on with the program, so to speak. But the shocker in 2018 is that attending workshops and seminars and giving speeches will be part of your spiritual path and purpose. Just be open to the possibilities and never give in to fear. Weekly mantra: May Divine Spirit use me to do my part in imparting knowledge and skills to others.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) Your emotional sensitivity is nothing to be ashamed of. Honor and respect your deep sensitivity because it is a gift. For example, you would know whether a person you just met is trustworthy or not. Ask the angels to help you channel this gift by being around peace-loving people and helping them. Weekly mantra: I honor my sensitivity by surrounding myself with gentleness in my relationships, media choices, home life, and work situation.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) You may have picked up fear-based feelings recently. Ask for the help of Archangels Michael (cord-cutting) and Raphael (healing) to lift these negative feelings from you, your surroundings, this situation, and everyone involved. With your innate healing ability, you can vacuum away fear not just from yourself but for others as well, but ask for their physical or psychic permission first. Weekly mantra: I know no fear – only LOVE.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) Archangel Michael is working closely with you this week, bringing you courage, backbone, protection from fear, and protection for your loved ones, If you’re considering making life changes, such as leaving a job or a relationship, ask Michael’s guidance and help in moving forward fearlessly. He can also assist you in finding your life’s purpose, and in what steps to take on your spiritual and career path. Weekly mantra: With Michael’s help, I reach for my highest Self.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) You are working with the Archangels Raguel (relationships) and Chamuel (who finds what you’re looking for). The Law of Attraction , translated for you this week, is that relationships and activities that you once enjoyed are now changing as you become more sensitive and aware of energies. Do not worry. Know that these changes are part of your spiritual path and you are attracting the people and situations that mirror your growth. Weekly mantra: With Raguel and Chamuel’s help, I open my heart to love and peace.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) You are a powerful Lightworker because you were made in the image and likeness of your Creators. You’ve got to become comfortable in wielding your healing and reading abilities because the world needs you to help shed light in the darkness. The more comfortable you are in your Divine power, the more steadily and evenly it flows through you. Weekly mantra: When I intend to use Divine power in the service of love, I experience harmony in all my spheres of influence.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) The answer to your question involves a spiritually based romantic relationship. Yes, we’re talking about your Twin Flame. A Twin Flame is a romantic partner who originated from your spiritual soul group – that he or she is “the one” in terms of soul-mate relationships. Ask for the angels’ help so you manifest your Twin Flame and thus have your question answered. Read more about this topic. Weekly mantra: Before I look for that best person for me, I am working on being the best person I can be.
Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be!

Impressions for 2018 with The Tarot, Crystals, and Stones

Methodology: Blind draws from the following decks:

  1. Tarot ng Daigdig sa Balintataw by Lynyrd Narciso ©2009
  2. The Mythic Tarot by Juliet Sharman-Burke & Liz Greene ©1986
  3. Crystal Wisdom Cards by Valencia Chan ©2016


January- The Magician-Blue Calcite

February-Knight of Cups-Bloodstone

March-The Chariot-Blue Chalcedony


The year 2018 opens in January with the energies of The Magician – that part of us which has mastered our lives and the manifestations of the four elements (fire, earth, air, and water). This is the part of us that is skillful, cunning, and is willing to teach and learn. As such, this is an ideal time to learn a new skill or academic discipline, with the objective of fine-tuning the mind and body to face the challenges of the new year. Blue Calcite is associated with the power of the spoken word, with its light soothing color stimulating the throat chakra of self-expression and speaking one’s truth. Monthly mantra: I only speak about what I would like to create in my life, and thus I draw it to me.

Emotional matters come to a head in February, represented by the Knight of Cups. Neither as wet behind the ears as the Page nor as sophisticated as the King, the Knight of Cups speaks to that part of us that is loving, caring, and sensitive. Relationships bloom, marriage proposals may be made, and a general feeling of love may permeate the air. Bloodstone, the key word of which is Restoration, asks, “Is there something that you are wanting to restore – a relationship, health, finance…?” Know that with strength, courage, and faith, you can overcome any adversity. Monthly mantra: I know that with strength, faith, and the power of Divine Restoration, I can heal and bless any situation.

In March 2018, The Chariot symbolizes the qualities needed to win any battle: self-reliance, righteousness, conviction, and plain hard work. In short, there will be no shortcuts for us! However, a warning is in place against overwhelming ambition and expectations set far too high. Cooperation will win the month, not selfishness and arrogance. Blue Chalcedony is known as the Faith Stone. It reminds one to have faith that the Universe has heard their request. More favorable results are obtained when one is happy and hopeful rather than when one is doubtful, frustrated, and impatient. Monthly mantra: I am a faith-filled person. I remain in good cheer no matter what is happening and things always turn around in my favor.

April-King of Cups-Carnelian

May-The Moon-Unikite

June-The High Priestess-Botswana Agate

April 2018 features the King of Cups, so at this point we have leveled up to achieve Competence.  Suave and compassionate, this speaks to that part of us who longs for a deep emotional connection. The shadow side of the King of Cups, however, is scandal. It calls for us to be discreet and mindful that we are still part of a community. This month’s stone, Carnelian, is associated with the second chakra, where the sexual organs are, so this stone corresponds to sexuality, pleasure, and desire. Also the stone for self-worth and deservability, Carnelian can help heal sexual abuse and trauma. Because the second chakra is located where the womb is, and the womb is where one gives birth, it stimulates creativity, whether for a baby, one’s artwork, sculpture, painting – the creative possibilities are endless! Monthly mantra: I honor my body and embrace my sexuality. I allow myself to have pleasure and enjoyment.

The Tarot card, The Moon, figures in May. This represents the life of the imagination apart from the life of the spirit. Being the Pisces card, this continues the streak of creativity begun the previous month, but this time with more emphasis on dreams, psychic impressions, and more serious psychic work for those who are so inclined. May 2018 is encouraging us to look deep within in reflective thought. Unikite, the stone drawn for this month, is a heart chakra stone that helps one release unforgiveness to bring healing to one’s heart. Having freed oneself of resentment and blame, it will free us of toxic energy that is contaminating our lives. Only then can we embrace a new future filled with wonderful blessings. Monthly mantra: By releasing negative emotions and forgiving the past, I am free to live a peaceful, harmonious life.

The High Priestess card, associated with the Moon, figures largely in June 2018. To forestall any confusion, The Moon card in Tarot is associated with Pisces, while the High Priestess card in Tarot is associated with the Moon (the Luminary). Suffice it to say that June carries over the general tone of the previous month. The High Priestess is about duality and mystery, wisdom and intuition, psychic ability and the Divine Feminine. As such, excesses of the prevailing patriarchal society must be countered by the peacefulness, harmony, and oneness with nature inherent within us, female AND male. We can stand by no longer while extremes of behavior toward one another and against Mother Nature are perpetrated by the powers-that-be. This is the time to choose the right side of the fight for our collective future. Botswana agate, the key word of which is Excellence, urges us to be precise and attentive to details. It encourages order and efficiency. Do not settle for mediocrity. It only takes a little extra push to make the ordinary extraordinary. Monthly mantra: I take pride in what I do. I reach for my highest potential by striving for excellence.

July-III of Cups-Picture Jasper

August-The Star-Snowflake Obsidian

September- III of Wands-Golden Quartz

July brings the conclusion of the matter, whatever the matter is. This second half of the year brings more emotional drama to the fore, but this time the end is within sight. This frees up energy to devote to one’s self-improvement, mental house-cleaning, and material tying up of loose ends. Picture Jasper, the key words of which are Law of Attraction, means that whatever you think of and speak about, that is what you will attract into your life. It’s really that simple. Additionally, once you realize that you are the creator of your reality, it will give you the power to mold your life any way you choose. Monthly mantra: My outer world is a reflection of my life within. I am mindful of the thoughts I think and the words I speak.

August 2018’s card is The Star, a very fortunate card to have. The pool of water refers to the subconscious while the land refers to the material world. Fresh hope and renewal are available to sincere seekers of enlightenment, and The Star makes healing of old wounds possible. The shadow side may be expressed as self-doubt, cynicism, pessimism, and the inability to express oneself. This month’s stone, Snowflake Obsidian, clears such negativity. It represents light overcoming darkness, it being basically a black opaque stone with flecks of grayish-white. This stone brings new beginnings, hope after a setback, and a gentle gradual improvement of an area that has caused pain in the past. Monthly mantra: As I focus on the positive, the negative energy gradually dissipates.

September is represented by the Initiative contained in the III of Wands. The shadow side of this card is delay. To prevent such an occurrence, it is best to be clear about your intentions and to plan ahead, not overlooking any single detail. The stone for this month is the Golden Quartz, the key word for which is Success. Quartz opens up the crown chakra, bringing enlightenment, and the color gold promotes abundance and success. Recognize the golden treasure that you truly are. When you can see your Divinity and know that you deserve the highest and best, you can create success in every area of your life. Monthly mantra: I connect with my Higher Self before I take action. When I do so, everything I touch brings abundance and success.

October-Ace of Swords-Amethyst

November-The Hanged Man-Crazy Lace Agate

December-The Tower-Yellow Jasper

October 2018 is ushered in by the Energy of the Ace of Swords. One month before the 2018 presidential election in the U.S., everybody wants to be Numero Uno again. We are bombarded by conflicting rhetoric from all sides, all proclaiming that only their solution to the ills of society works. The shadow side of all this energy is fear, and it may either cow us into blind submission or paralyze us into apathetic inaction. If there ever was a time to use our collective voice and movements to express our positive intentions to counteract mindless mass panic, this should be it. The Amethyst opens up the crown chakra, stimulating spiritual growth, enlightenment, and self-realization. Working with this crystal can help relieve anxiety and stress and helps connect us to our Higher Selves. Monthly mantra: I am committed to my spiritual growth. As I raise my consciousness, I become a source of light to the world.

November 2018 is represented by The Hanged Man. This Major Arcana card appears when there is a sense of having to sacrifice one thing to obtain another. It is a card of transformation, transition, flexibility, rebirth, release, and deliverance. Its shadow is materialism and an inflated ego. Being easily influenced and a lack of commitment ultimately lead to a loss of some kind. True enough, this month the fates of Presidential hopefuls hang in the balance like the Hanged Man. Self-inflicted martyrdom will either spell the beginning or the end of an era in American politics. The Crazy Lace Agate has layers of repeating lace patterns. It asks: “Is there a person or situation that has been driving you crazy, that is, repeating in a pattern?” This stone releases the negative loop, heals the anger and frustration, and gives one the courage, hope, and optimism to start again. Monthly mantra: I can start a new cycle focusing on what I want and not on how things have been. As I focus on the new, the old patterns fall away due to lack of attention.

Whether upright or reversed, The Tower in December 2018 is about sudden, violent loss, a disruptive overthrow of an existing way of life. In the disastrous political and financial aftermath, necessary changes are gradually put into place, accompanied a re-evaluation of personal and family goals, and nation-building directives as a whole. It may be hard to believe, but all of these could be a huge blessing in disguise. Appropriately, the stone drawn for this month is the Yellow Jasper, the key word of which is Optimism. The happy-go-lucky color of yellow helps one see the bright side of any situation. Yellow Jasper keeps one in a state of gratitude for all the wonderful blessings the Universe has to offer. Monthly mantra: I am a positive person. When I find things to appreciate, the Universe sends me more things to appreciate.


YEAR 2018 CRYSTAL: JADE (Good Fortune)

Strength is the Leo card, ruled by the Sun (the Luminary). A regular Rider-Waite-Smith card shows the figure of an angel gently opening the jaws of a lion. The Strength card is about discipline and control. The lion represents the primal part of the mind, and the woman, the more elevated parts of the mind. Hence, the true strength demanded of us in the entire year of 2018 must come from within, our internal compass, our inner Co-Creator. No matter what goes on outside in the world, be able to say, “It is well with my soul.” Overall, the crystal for 2018 is Jade. To the Chinese people, Jade is the crystal for good luck, good fortune, and good health. It helps attract prosperity, happiness, well-being, and longevity. Year 2018 mantra: As I am grateful for all the good fortune that I have, more blessings flow into my life.

Readings below are brought to you in part by the “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) This week, it’s time to nourish the artistic and creative spirit within you. If you have to visit an art gallery or simply take a walk in nature, then find the time to do so. Life is not just about work and drudgery. Set you spirit free! Weekly mantra: The Muses inspire me to look at art that inspires and uplifts.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) You have access to the healer persona within you at this time. First, you need to find ways to heal yourself. Having then helped yourself, you must extend healing to others as well. Use music as part of your healing tools. Weekly mantra: Glispa, Navajo Goddess of Healing, reminds me that my healing powers lie within.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) The worries of life have nearly defeated your spirit. However, the key modifier is “nearly,” meaning that you definitely are NOT down and out for the count yet. You can dust off your garments, stand up, and continue the good fight. Weekly mantra: The Egyptian Goddess of Cats, Bastet, wants me to allow myself to be as lighthearted as a cat.
CANCER (June 21- July 22) Your thoughts create your reality, so be conscious of what you choose. Instead of doubt and fear, choose to think of courage, faith, and enterprise. Be more aware of how your way of thinking colors your daily life, and assume control over your mind accordingly. Weekly mantra: Aditi, India’s Mother Space, encourages me to be conscious of my thoughts, and only think positively.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Step into the realm of mysticism and magic. These mind-spaces are especially open to you at this time, so open up and receive. Your generous and sunny hearis positioned to spread love and wonder in the world. Weekly mantra: Irish Fairy Queen Aine is reminding me that magic is afoot and I need to find a way to encourage it.
VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 22) You have a surfeit of riches these days. It seems that you already have all in matters of spirit, mind, body, and social ties. So although it is good to desire “more”, sometimes it is better to possess contentment. Weekly mantra: Ogboinba, Nigerian Goddess of Prophecy, wants me to balance aspiration with contentment.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) If you’ve been feeling that life has been unusually harsh to you, then rest assured that this situation is only temporary. You can actually create the life that you want! It starts by envisioning what you desire your life to be. Prepare short-, medium- and long-term plans for now. The time for action will follow. Weekly mantra: The Greek Goddess Gaia, Mother Earth, reminds me that I can create the productive life I want.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) You are no stranger to dark emotions. Instead of fearing your shadow side, you actually welcome and nurture it. Since you are very comfortable with the darker shades of your persona, then let your mysterious emotions bring you strength. Don’t be afraid of your own power! Weekly mantra: Sekhmet, Egypt’s Mighty Goddess of Sun, Enchantment, and the Underworld, wants me to know that it’s safe to embrace the dark parts of me.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) To be able to share one’s talents with the world in exchange for personal wealth is the happiest of situations. You know this instinctively, Sadge, and thus you should now be on the lookout for opportunities to convert your talents into cash – not only for your survival, but for your spirit to thrive. Weekly mantra: Benzai-ten, Japanese Goddess of the Talents, encourages me to seek out opportunities for turning talents to wealth.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) Blessed are the ones among you these days who have partners in life, because this is a week when passions run high. How beautiful it is to complement a thriving relationship with intimacy and caring! With the love you both share, the Universe prompts you to spread the love and positivity within your circles of influence. Weekly mantra: Rati, India’s Goddess of Sexuality, asks me to embrace my passion.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Tired of always being on the receiving end? Well, the Universe is smiling upon you this week. You actually have the means to be generous in order to benefit another in your family, circle of friends, or co-workers. You are Generosity Personified now, and your heart is singing just because it’s so darned good to give! Weekly mantra: Ukemochi, Japanese Goddess of Generosity, guides my granting and giving. I am grateful.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) Why didn’t you get what you wanted before? Because you did not ask. So now the Universe is giving you another chance to manifest your desires, but this time it wants you to ASK. Ask the Universe. Ask the angels for help. Choose an action to reach your goal. Now is the time. Weekly mantra: Welsh Horse Goddess Rhiannon asks me to ask for help and set my goals.

Maraming salamat, Mabuhay, Namaste, and Blessed be!
