GoldenDove Tarot Readings by Aradia GoldenDove

Greetings & Welcome to GoldenDove Tarot! I hope you enjoy your visit here! Keep in mind, there is a good deal of remodeling under way. Come in, relax and take some time just for yourself. Look around... think... wonder... ponder... imagine... e-mail me with questions if you like! Please note, prices have changed. Not all PayPal buttons have been adjusted. For the time being, the "Donation Button" is the one to use. In addition, if you are here to contribute to the fund I have set up for Sir Merlin The Fearless and Lady Stormy Skye, use the "Donation Button" to make your donation. It will be transfered to the account at Animal Hospital of Kannapolis. Also, due to a change in state laws, I am no longer an Amazon affiliate. Most of the Amazon links have been removed, but not all. The references to selling books, gifts, cards, etc. will soon all be removed. Also, smudge mix is not being offered at this time. Thank you for your patience, during the update.

Donations

PAY FOR YOUR READING HERE! Tarot readings $25; Flower Essence Readings $15. Fees listed for readings have changed. Because of the current recession, I have reduced fees. PayPal buttons have not been updated. So, for now, this is the button to use to pay for the reading of your choice. The main purpose of this donation button is for those who desire to send a "love offering" for services provided, at no charge. Some people want to give something, even when there is no fee. But, for now, it is also the place to pay for your reading. And it is the place to make donations for the account I have set up at Animal Hospital of Kannapolis. Funds for Merlin and Stormy will be transfered promptly. Thank you.

Experiencing A GoldenDove Tarot Reading

I pride myself in operating an ethical practice. I put more emphasis on ethics than many realize.

Before doing your reading, I will ask you what your main concern is and help you form your question in a manner that will increase the potential of you getting the most you can out of your Tarot reading. I also use astrology and numerology in my readings. Therefore, I would like to have your date of birth as well as the name you go by -- first name only. Also, knowing your place and time of birth is instrumental when dealing with astrology. If you do not know your time of birth that is fine. However, I do recommend that you find out what time you were born, since that is the only way to determine your Rising Sign/Ascendant, which is the sign of the Zodiac that was just coming over the Eastern Horizon at the moment you were born. If your inquiry is about a relationship, having the other person's first name and date, time and place of birth is also helpful, but not absolutely necessary. Each Tarotist has their own method. There is no one right way to read Tarot. Personally, I like to burn a white or a silver candle and some incense, such as sandalwood, Nag Champa, frankincense or my own blend of herbs/smudge mix, or other herbs during my readings when possible. All you have to do after we have discussed your question is be open to receive! If you are receiving your reading by email, simply concentrating on your question and being receptive at the time of your request will open the channels sufficiently. Whether doing your reading by instant message or by e-mail, I will focus on you and connect with you, keeping your question in my mind. I choose which Tarot spread to use based on the nature of your inquiry. The spread that "feels" appropriate at the time is the one I use. I believe you will find my readings helpful and informative. Always keep this in mind: if you find the outcome of your reading undesirable, change what you are doing in relation to the situation your reading focused on. This will give you the opportunity/possibility perhaps to change the outcome. Nothing is written in stone! However, one must keep in mind, there are some things we simply have to go through in order to grow! If you find yourself in that position, at least you can draw on your reading and its advice - you won't be blind-sided! Knowledge is Power! And, sometimes, What You Do Not Know, Can Hurt You or Worse! So, I say again, Knowledge is Power! Whether you "want to know it" or not, face it down. Applying this theory is what makes Tarot readings terrific for self-help!

Services And Fees

My services include, but are not limited to what I have listed below.
If you have inquiries as to whether I offer additional services you do not see here, but that you may require, please contact me personally. If I don't have the answer, I WILL find it!
I have included fees and PayPal buttons for each of the services I have listed. Some services, such as distant Reiki or prayer requests, I simply cannot bring myself to put a fee on. However, some people will not take advantage of services that have no fees, if a way is not provided for them to at least make a small donation for the service. And in the case such as Reiki and Prayer, I believe people feel that even more so. For that reason, I have added at least one PayPal button for Donations.

Tarot Reading by E-Mail: $65.00


My e-mail readings are absolutely and with no doubt, THE BEST DEAL I OFFER! the best deal I offer. There's no telling how long I may spend on your e-mail reading, but rest assured, it will be more (possibly much more) than an hour, even though I am a professional typist.
In addition, you will have your entire reading to print and/or save if you wish.

One-Card Tarot Reading by IM, E-mail: $6.50

Tarot Reading by Instant Message (30 Minutes): $35.00

Tarot Reading by Instant Message (One Hour): $65.00

Tarot Reading in Person (When offered.): $65.00 per hour.
Readings done in person are payable upon our meeting.

Pendulum Readings -- Excellent for "Yes/No" Questions, Percentage of Probability and More.
Pendulum Reading by IM or Email (One Question): $6.50

Flower Essence Reading by E-Mail or Instant Message: $27.00
My Flower Essence Readings can last any where from 30 minutes to an hour. I never really know until I get into it. Your reading includes details to help you understand just exactly what Flower Essences are, as well as what they are not! I also include information on where you can find them and how to use them properly. Many health food stores carry them, even if they only have Edward Bach's six flower Rescue Remedy. I find that my clients are always very pleased with my Flower Essence Readings. I am capable of making my own Flower Essences. However, I normally use brand names, such as Bach, to mix what my client needs. That is, if I have the correct ones on hand. Flower Essences can absolutely do NO HARM to anyone. I have intended to obtain a great stock of the various brands and types of Flower Essences ever since I began building this site in early 2003! Well, I can tell you, I am much closer to accomplishing just that, than I ever have been! I am projecting, within the first half of 2009. At that point, (after checking rules, laws & regulations), I will have the means to mix Flower Essences especially for you, and ship them to you. They are chosen and mixed based on your consultation with me. There will be very detailed information with them. This is "Vibrational Healing"! It is actually the vibration each flower gives off that is captured in order to make each Flower Essence. As you read the definitions I will give you on each of your recommended Essences, you will be amazed as to how accurate these readings are! A mixture normally consists of three to five Flower Essences, depending on your issues -- I have used up to seven. I love working with them, and look forward to offering that service, which of course will drive the fee up to cover my stock of Essences, brown or blue dropper bottles they will be mixed in, plus tax, shipping and handling. I will keep fees as low as possible for you. But that is in the near future.
In the meantime, here in the present, working with what I have, after your Flower Essence reading, which is very informative, I type up all the information from the reading and any additional information you may need about each Essence recommended; where to find them, and how to use the Flower Essences. As mentioned above, Flower Essences are a type of Vibrational Healing, so do not expect to smell flowers! For first time users of Flower Essences, I will also include a general explanation of exactly what Flower Essences are and how they work. I will grant you, you will love using Flower Essences!

Smudge Mix: $12.00 + $2.50 to cover tax, shipping & handling, for a total of $14.50 - 1 ounce
I will make a smudge mix just for you from my herb collection, upon request. Let me know what your intend to use the smudge for, and I will choose the proper ingredients for your unique bag of smudge mix!
Your smudge mix will arrive with instructions.
If you have questions about your smudge, either before or after you receive your order, I'll be happy to answer them.



Reiki Energy Sessions in Person (When offered.): $70.00


I am a Third Degree Reiki Practitioner. Usually, when one reachecs the Third Degree, they are called a Reiki Master -- this means they not only can but they know exactly how to pass on attunments to others. That's the part I have not taken the time to study as of yet. Normally at A full Reiki Treatment takes about sixty-five minutes. If you are interested in this or would like to learn more about Reiki, please contact me to make arrangements.
Payment for Reiki Sessions in person is handled as follows: I ask that you come here to the site and through the PayPal Button below, pay half of the amount of the service ($35.00) in order to secure your appointment. The other half of my fee ($35.00) is due upon my arrival the day of your appointment. At that point I will have collected the full $70.00 fee for my services. The reason I suggest you pay the second half upon my arrival, is because you will be entirely too relaxed to want to get up and dig out the money after your session -- though you will certainly be able! Getting the initial "draw", if you will, for this service, helps prevent me showing up, only to find out my client has forgotten, had an emergency, etc. These things do happen. Should we have arrangements made; you have already made your $35.00 payment, all you need do is contact me as soon as possible. We will reschedule the appointment, or if you are unsure of when you will be able to schedule another appointment, I will refund your full $35.00 downpayment promptly! No problem! Then you can call me at a later date!


Below I have provided two PayPal Buttons for this full Reiki treatment. Use the first one to make your $35.00 downpayment towards the total $70.00 fee. Use the second button to pay the full $70.00, if you desire to do so, and simply be done with the money part. That will be entirely up to you, unless we have made other arrangements for what ever reason.


Make your $35.00 installment here, with the understanding this is only half-payment towards the total of $70.00. The other $35.00 is to be paid upon our meeting.



If you would like to pay the full $70.00 and be done with it, use the button just below to pay the entire $70.00 fee for your full Reiki Session.



GoldenDove Gift Certificates!


Here I have included the option of GoldenDove Gift Certificates. GoldenDove Gift Certificates may be redeemed for any of the services listed on this site, excluding services of those I have affiliated with, such as Amazon, as though I have affiliate association with Amazon and several others, still we are seperate entities. So, the Certificate may only be redeemed here on site. The value of the Gift Certificate is opened for you the shopper to fill in what ever amount you desire. Once your transaction has been completed through PayPal, a different PayPal screen will display, allowing you to print your GoldenDove Gift Certificate. This is something totally new here at GoldenDove Tarot. I do not foresee any possible problem with this offer. However, since it is a brand new idea, should you have any problem whatsoever with my Gift Certificates, pleaase contact me as soon as possible by phone, the numbers are near the bottom of my page, along with my name, and mailing address. So do not hesitate to purchase my Gift Certificates, because as mentioned, I see no reason there should be problems. AND if there are problems, you call me and I will handle it right away! You cannot and will not lose.



Reiki Distant Healing: Complimentary by Request.
Just contact me and ask. Distant Reiki does work! Please do not discount it, simply because I do it for you as a complimentary service. I have my own reasons for offering this service in this mannar. If Reiki Distant Healing did not work, I would not waste my time typing this. Nor would I risk my reputation. If you feel you must make payment for this service, though I do not expect it, I have provided a PayPal Donation button below.


Prayer Requests: Complimentary by Request. If you have a prayer request, please send it to me. I pray, send positive energy and burn an appropriate candle. In addition, I will send your request to other people and organizations via the Internet, who will pray for you, too. This means the person/issue will receive healing energy from all over the globe from all traditions! What a beautiful thought!
There are certainly no fees involved in prayer requests! However, if you feel you must make some payment, though I do not expect it, I have provided a PayPal Donations button below.


"Other"!


If you and I have discussed a payment other than those listed (ex: You desire to add more reading time. I may have a book or cards we discuss that you would like to purchase.), please click the PayPal button below and enter the amount we agreed on.

Ethics

Tarot is a very useful tool, the study of which can lead one on a spiritually enlightening journey. In dealing with Tarot, whether reading for yourself or getting a reading from another, it is important to keep an open mind. Also, know that nothing is written in stone. If you do not like the outcome of your reading, change what you are doing in relation to the situation in question. By doing so, you have the possibility of creating a better outcome. Forewarned is forearmed, just as knowledge is power. If the outcome is unchangeable at least you can be prepared for it. Sometimes a reading stands to confirm that which you already are aware of. This too can be an advantage and a reassuring comfort.

It is my belief that there are limits to the questions you should ask about someone else unless their life and/or actions can have direct effect you. You will find that I will not tell you something just because I think it is what you want to hear. I will tell you the truth as I see it. If I cannot see it I will tell you that, too! Please keep in mind that nothing and no one is 100% accurate all of the time. Though readings are quite helpful, you cannot and must not base your entire life on them. You should take the information from your readings and make your own decisions, based on your own good judgment, according to your own free will. Free will is our birthright!

Confidentiality is a very big issue to me, whether it concerns what goes on in conversation with a client, a friend, or with anyone for that matter. My clients come from all walks of life. Trust is so very important. What goes on in your reading is between you and me. If you choose to share that information, that is your choice, not mine. Should I ever make reference to a reading I have done, for what ever purpose, I shall never speak of names, places, situations or anything else that could ever possibly disclose my client's identity. This I promise to you.

I have not/will not share or sell names or e-mail addresses I obtain through my practice with anyone or any organization for any purpose. I may however from time to time, send my clients information pertaining to this site, or any similar site I may develop in the future. If you would rather I not contact you with this type of information, please let me know this so I can make a note in my files to that affect. It is my desire to keep my practice operating within the requirements and guidelines that have been established by "The Internet Powers That Be"!

Disclaimer

In order to stay within proper practice, it is in my highest interest to mention that "Tarot readings, as all other types of 'psychic readings', are for entertainment purposes only!" It is required in many places that a Tarotist, or any other reader, make a similar statement. So, there you have it!

It is also important for those interested in receiving Reiki to know that Reiki is not a substitute for traditional medicine. However, it works quite well in conjunction with traditional medicine.

The Mysterious Tarot

The history of the Tarot is wrapped in at least as much mystery as the Tarot itself. No one knows the true origin of the cards. We do know that the word Tarot is the word the French used for the original Italian word Tarocchi. Many believe the Tarot holds a secret code to life -- from the beginning of life's journey and on. There is speculation that the Tarot originated in Atlantis. This is a theory I lean towards strongly. I read yet another theory that suggested the origin of the Tarot may be found in the constellations which, as I see it, could be considered in line with the Atlantian connection. You will find the history of Tarot documented in many books. You will also find that the theories and opinions vary.

There is a great deal of Tarot history documented from 14th/15th century Italy. Italy gave us the Visconti Tarocchi which was commissioned in 1441 by the Duke of Milan, Filippo Maria Visconti. The Visconti-Sforza Tarocchi was created in 1450 as a wedding gift for a marriage between the Visconti and Sforza families. Both of these decks are said to have been used to play a game called Tarocchi. The artist commissioned to create these two decks was Bonifacio Bembo. However, these are certainly not the only Tarot decks of Italian origin.

The Tarot is made up of a combination of astrology, numerology, Kabbalah and more. Even the colors on the cards are symbolic, as are the animals, insects, birds, plants and the facial expressions of the characters. The direction a character is facing in relation to the other cards in a spread can be significant as well. It has been said that there are esoteric messages built into the cards of the Major Arcana -- secret information hidden in the cards by some ancient culture to ensure preservation of this most important knowledge. Sharing these secrets of wisdom openly, at some points in time could have lead to persecution, or worse.

There are literally hundreds of Tarot decks to choose from based on myriad themes, the most popular of which is the Rider-Waite Tarot. Many other decks are based on this one. I read with The Tarot of the Old Path. Some of the others that are available are The Wonderland Deck with an Alice in Wonderland theme, Tarot of Oz, Angel Tarot, Goddess Tarot, Motherpeace Round Tarot, Medicine Woman Tarot, Native American Tarot, Tarot Art Nouveau, Herbal Tarot which can be helpful in health readings, Robin Wood Tarot, Morgan-Greer Tarot, Arthurian Tarot, Celtic Tarot, Dali Tarot featuring the artwork of Salvador Dali, Tarot of Marseilles dating back to the 16th century, The Tiny Tarot with the cards measuring about 1" by 1/2", and then there is The Smallest Tarot of the World which consists only of the 22 Major Arcana cards of Tarot of the Gnomes -- these tiny cards can be almost entirely covered by a penny! Still other Tarot decks are based on various cultures, traditions, stories, fairies, dragons, crystals, et cetera. You can even get a blank deck if you choose to design your own Tarot. Most, if not all of these decks can be ordered on this site through Amazon.com. Just type the name of the deck you desire in the Amazon box I have provided -- same goes for books. Or you could just type in the words "Tarot decks" and see what comes up. If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact me.

I believe that the knowledge of the Tarot and its popularity would not be what it is in Western Society today had it not been for The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a Western Kabbalistic tradition founded in 1888. From the Golden Dawn came the most widely used Tarot deck we have today. It is the Rider-Waite Tarot, also called the Rider Tarot, as William Rider was its publisher. However, this deck was actually created in 1908 by Arthur Edward Waite (1857-1942) and Pamela Coleman-Smith (1878-1951), both members of The Golden Dawn. Smith was the artist, so it only stands to reason that she must have had influence over the work. It seems it would have been more appropriate that this deck had been called the Waite-Smith Tarot -- but that is just my humble opinion!

The Tarot deck is made up of seventy-eight cards. Twenty-two of these cards make up the Major Arcana, beginning with 0 The Fool/Seeker and ending with XXI The World/Universe -- these usually represent major life principles, changes and/or occurrences. The word "arcana" is plural of the Latin arcanus, meaning secret.

The remaining fifty-six cards are the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana is made up of four suits of fourteen cards in each suit. Each suit consists of Ace through 10 plus four court cards -- Page, Knight, Queen and King. The Minor Arcana represent common events, actions, situations, thoughts/feelings, advice, et cetera. The court cards can be representative of people, but this is not always the case. Often it is the qualities of the personality portrayed by a particular court card that should be focused on instead of assuming that the card is indicative of another individual -- though at times a court card does represent a particular individual. The four suits are Cups/Cauldrons, Wands/Rods, Coins/Pentacles and Swords each of which represents one of the four elements: Water, Fire, Earth and Air respectively.

The fifty-six cards of the Minor Arcana are akin to those of our modern playing cards, with the exception of the court cards. In the Tarot, the court in each of the four suits consists of the Page, Knight, Queen and King (or in some decks Prince, Princess, Queen, Knight). In playing cards the Page and Knight have been combined to become the Jack. The suits of playing cards as they relate to the suits of the Tarot are as follows: Hearts = Cups, Clubs = Wands, Diamonds = Pentacles, Spades = Swords. It is also interesting to note that the Joker in playing cards is somewhat like The Fool/Seeker of the Major Arcana. It would be hard to dispute the theory that our modern playing cards are in fact a spin-off of the Tarot. There are some who can do readings with a regular deck of playing cards. I have seen this done and it is truly amazing to me.

I find the Tarot truly fascinating! I am so blessed to have made the choice to allow its magickal mystery tour into my life. In addition to enjoying the beautiful art of my favorite decks and the knowledge I have gained through working with my cards, through and because of the Tarot I have had the great fortune of meeting many marvelous people that I may not have met otherwise. Some of these lovely people are ones I have read for. Others are fellow Tarotists who have read for me, taught me and encouraged me in many ways. The Tarot is most definitely a life-enriching tool in more ways than one might first imagine.

Reiki

The best way to translate the Japanese word Reiki, (ray-key), is "universal life force energy". It is a 5,000 year old natural healing technique used to heal and relax body, mind and spirit, down to the deepest level. The energy of Reiki is "channeled" energy. The Reiki practitioner is simply a channel, or vessel for this energy of The Light. For this reason the practitioner benefits from the energy as they channel it. Reiki can be performed by a laying-on of hands method or can be projected over distance. It is not a religion. In addition, it is not a substitute for traditional medicine. It does however, work very well in conjunction with traditional medicine and therapies. For the greatest benefit, at least three treatments are recommended no matter which technique is used.

Reiki can bring healing on many levels. It also induces relaxation and peacefulness. Even the terminally can ill benefit from Reiki. It can ease their pain (physical and emotional); help them sleep better and bring them peace. It can be used on babies, pets, plants, food, vitamins and medications as well!

Within the last decade, more and more healthcare professionals have come to take Reiki seriously. Many of them (especially massage therapists) are learning Reiki themselves in order to enhance their traditional practices.

I realize things that seem unusual, strange or intangible are sometimes hard to take seriously. I would ask that you please try and keep an open mind and read on. I once read that when Thomas Edison was asked what electricity was and how it worked, his response was, "I don't know how it works, but it works! Let's use it!" Now there is some food for thought!

If you are interested in Bible study, you will find the following in I Corinthians 12:4-11, "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses." (Taken from The Harper Collins Study Bible). Though many of us hold different opinions of the Bible and its translations, it must be admitted that these are very profound words. My reason for sharing this verse is to point out that each of us have our own gifts. These gifts are our birthright. We each just have to discover what our individual gifts are and develop them.

Reiki can be passed on to any individual, including children, by a Reiki Master. The process of passing on this energy is called an attunement. There are three levels of Reiki, each one requiring a different attunement and additional knowledge. After the Reiki Three Attunement, one can then learn to pass attunements to others. It is not recommended to get the Reiki Attunements all very close together. Personally, I recommend waiting six months to a year between each of the Attunements. However, there are those who get them closer together than that. On that note, I will just say, follow your intuition. If it doesn't seem right; you do not feel ready, please wait. I will grant you, you will always be able to find a Reiki Master!

Those of you familiar with Reiki may be aware of Reiki lineage. Mine goes as follows -- Reiki I attunement in 1996 and Reiki II attunement in 1999, both from the following lineage: Dr. Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Bethel Phaigh, Marv Witbeck, and Debbie Avalos who gave me both those attunements. In 2001 I received my Reiki III attunement its lineage is as follows -- Dr. Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Bethel Phaigh, Marv Witbeck, Debbie Avalos, and Jeanne Porter Ashley who performed my third attunement by using the distant method.

I an located near the County Line between Cabarrus and Rowan Counties, North Carolina, so if you are in a nearby county, I can make arrangements to perform Reiki Energy sessions for you in person. I have gone to hospitals, to perform Reiki Sessions for those who desire them. I will also go to Rehabilitation Centers and/or Retirement Homes.

Pendulum Readings


The use of a pendulum to acquire answers is called dowsing or divining. Those who practice the art of pendulum dowsing are called pendulists or dowsers. Pendulums are made of many different things, stones, herbs, metals, pencils. They are made up simply of almost any small weight attached to a chain or string that can freely swing. It is not hard to make a pendulum. My favorite pendulum is one that I have had for many years. It is a quartz crystal point on a sterling chain with a sterling hook I can hang on my right index finger. (Left-handers would use their left index finger.) I also have another one I enjoy, that is made of a blue-lace agate teardrop on a sterling chain with a white chalcedony ball at the top. You can find pendulums in many forms. You can also find pendulums and pendulum books through Amazon.com -- please use one of my search boxes.

There are many uses for pendulums. They can even be used to determine if a vitamin, supplement, or herb is the right one for you. Pendulums are probably most often used for "yes/no/maybe" questions. There are various charts that can be used with a pendulum to gain all kinds of information. Though it is not really necessary to have charts in order to get accurate answers from a pendulum, the charts can be quite helpful and aid in determining an answer more quickly. I use my pendulum with and without charts. As far as charts go, I really like my percentage of probability chart.

Pendulum readings are quick and easy. I have had very good results using this form of divination. If you have a question you need an answer to, but are short on time, a pendulum reading may be just right for you.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about pendulum dowsing. Use the box below to search Amazon.com for pendulums and pendulum books or charts.

Smudge: What It Is And What Are Its Uses

Smudge is often simply a small bundle of sage, or a few pinches of sage in a smudge bowl with sand in the bottom. It is burned in order to use its smoke for the purpose of clearing a space or an item of any negative energies that may be contained therein. Some people insist on using only white sage only. However, many people do not like the smell of the white sage by itself. There are smudge sticks that combine other herbs and/or resins with white sage, such as lavender and copal which smells great! I like to make my own smudge mixes. I will mix a blend especially for you upon request. See above list of services rendered.

At this time, the Sun is in the sign of Pisces. Pisces time is great for developing intuition! Be sure to pay close attention to your dreams while the Sun is visiting Pisces! The Sun has a great deal to do with one's self-expression. There is a great deal more to astrology than just the Sun Sign. The placement of each planet, as well as the aspects they each make to another, is what makes us each individuals. That is one of the reasons, why two people of the same Sun Sign can be so very different. Search for Sun Sign and other astrology books below.

The Moon --Emotions

The Moon has great bearing on our emotions, just as it does the sea. The Moon stays in each sign about two and one-half days. Today the Moon is in Libra and will be moving into Scorpio within the next day or so. Thought I always enjoy reading for others, Scorpio Moon is my favorite time of each month to do my readings. I always look forward to it!

Moon Void Of Course



When the Moon is moving from one sign to another, it is said to be void of course. You may see this term abbreviated as voc or v/c. When the Moon is void of course it is said that "She is not talking to anyone!" Therefore, it is not the best time for decision making or for important conversations. It is however a great time for going within oneself, meditation and contemplation. Naturally, there are decisions and conversations that must go on during the void of course period. However, if such things can wait until the Moon is more stable, results will be better. The amount of time the Moon is void of course varies -- it can be minutes or most of a day. The Moon is in each sign for about two and a half days.

The Rising Sign -- or Your Ascendant

The Rising Sign, also called the Ascendant, is the sign of the zodiac that was just rising over the Eastern Horizon at the very moment one was born. That is why the time and place of birth are so important in astrology. The Rising Sign is said to be one's "Astrological Mask" -- it is how you appear and has a lot to do with how you present yourself. Some astrologers believe that the placement of one's Ascendant is as important as that of the Sun. The only way to determine one's Ascendant, is to have their exact date, time and place of birth. With this information, an astrologer or an astrology program, can determine the rising sign.

Mercury -- Intellect and Communication

Mercury has bearing on communication, air waves, travel, mail, almost anything that moves or travels by air waves. The Mercury Rx peroids are not a good times to sign contracts, shop (especially for electronics), ship things, etc. This time is best used for things that begin with the prefix "re-"... redo, rework, review, revisit... I ran across an article that describes Mercury retrograde best: Murphy's Law as defined in the cosmos! You can find this article, which includes tables of upcoming Mercury retrogrades and a Greenwich Meantime Conversion (GMT) table at http://karmastrology.com/mecrx.shtml.

Chiron -- Healing

On December 6th, 2005, Chiron moved from Capricorn back into Aquarius. Looking a little further ahead, Chiron will move into Pisces April 20th, 2010; go retrograde June 5th, 2010; re-enter Aquarius July 21st, 2010. If you are interested in a good book on Chiron, Essence and Application: A View From Chiron, was written by Zane B. Stein. Zane has a marvelous website, Chiron and Friends which covers this little rogue planet/planetoid quite well. He also has informaion on the other asteroids, as they relate to astrology. (See my "Links" section.) Though I have not read this book, based on the content of Zane's website, as well as the correspondence I have had with him, I have no doubt that this is a marvelous book. I know it's on my "Gotta Have It" list! Search for Zane's book below.

Asteroids in Astrology -- Do Not Discount Them

The asteroids are Ceres (now in Scorpio), Juno (Taurus), Pallas (Libra), Vesta (Gemini), and many people list Chiron (Capricorn) as an asteroid. I like the description of Chiron I found someplace that refers to it as a "rogue planet/planetoid"! I'll be adding more information about the asteroids, soon.

Sedna -- Our "Newest" Planet

Sedna, (I will leave this outdated information on for the time being.) our newest "planet", was named for the mythological character of Sedna, and so will inevitably carry similar traits. Currently Sedna is in the sign of Taurus. I have read some of information that is available on Sedna, as it relates to astrology. This new "planet" was sited November 14th, 2003, though general population was not informed until March 15th, 2004. There seems to be some argument going on as to whether it actually is a planet. I have a feeling that it will be deemed a planet before all is said and done. There is a great deal that is not yet determined about Sedna. I can tell you that it is quite icy and has a temperature of around -400 degrees Fahrenheit! Lady Sarolta DeFaltay, owner of MoonSpells (the fantastic site and newsletters I mentioned above), wrote an excellent article on Sedna. She also included links to other information on this new planet. To read Sarolta's article, Sedna: Discovery of the 10th "Planet" and access the Sedna links she has provided, (including a link to a Sedna ephemeris) CLICK HERE!

Merlin's Corner



2009 -- You can bet I still have my "baby" Sir Merlin the Fearless! I will update you on "the life & times of Merlin" very soon! My beloved kitty, Merlin the Fearless is now over 7 years old! How time flies! I do not know Merlin's exact birth date, since I adopted him when he was very tiny. He strayed from a litter of feral cats, but himself was incredibly fearless, friendly and tame! I handfed him until he could eat on his own. He could not have been over three weeks old when he wandered into my life, toddling out of the shadows and right into my open hand -- steady "talking"! After petting him and enjoying the amazement of how tame, fearless and adorable he was, I told him to go back to his Mom, as he was entirely to young to be wandering around! I put him down and he wandered right back into the same shadows he had wandered out of, under the house -- again, he was steady "talking". Two days later, I looked out the kitchen window and saw him wandering around in the driveway -- that is the day I became his "Mom"! I estimate his birthday as being on or around April 7th, 2003 -- he toddled into my hand and my life on April 27th, 2003 with eyes still glazed! So, this is Merlin's Corner! The kitty above is not Merlin, but it could pass for him. Below, find a photo of Merlin the Fearless -- my little shadow kitty. He is quite a cat -- "a cat's cat" one man said; with a face that will melt even the hardest heart! I have seen it happen, first hand!

Merlin has his own favorite blend of herbs. We mix them up, put them in a sock, and he goes bonkers! Your kitty will never settle for "just catnip" again after getting a hold of this stuff! Merlin and I will be adding more to his corner!
