Last night at 1:45 am I was awakened to the very loud voice of a woman coming from my living room. I ran in there to find out it was a newscaster from the BBC booming from one of our speakers. Nothing was turned on! Thinking it was coming from our Sonos System which has broadcast options from all over the world, I grabbed my phone looking for the Sonos App to turn it off. It told me to reinstall. So I went to my laptop and tried the Sonos App there, it wanted to update, which I did. After that I looked through and nothing was turned on. I removed a radio station. She still kept shouting! I disconnected the Sonos speaker, no help. I realized it was coming from the other large speaker next to the DVD player. I tried to find a wire to turn off that speaker. Suddenly it shut itself off! Sudden quiet at 2:15 a.m. Husband slept through it all! I still cannot understand what happened nor can he!!
Read your Sun Sign and Rising Sign for some clues as to what would make a great vacation for you!
ARIES: The Mars energy always goes with you wherever you go. However, a calm, quiet resort would certainly be a good contrast to your usual day. You tend to pack in a lot of activity and excitement. You may enjoy exploring the back roads and finding something new and different. But instead of always looking for some excitement going on, you would really benefit from a complete change of scene.
TAURUS: It’s usually a tropical island or a cruise for you, where someone else is planning the activities and serving the meals. You want to sit and recharge and just release your tension. You often bring the family, but try to have one short period of time along without the kids. Pass up the temptation to vacation with business friends. Try to break the rut of always going to the same place every year. Explore somewhere new every so often and try new places to eat. See how great you feel!
GEMINI: You dream about your vacations, imagining the ‘perfect’ trip. You tend to make plans and then change them or add in another stop, because your ruler Mercury lends some changeability to your nature. However, this also affects others who are going with you. You like taking tours, but it would be good to stay longer in a place so you can absorb what you are seeing more fully. You like to read and also chat with those you meet. Rent a bike or motorscooter and see things along the way.
CANCERIANS: You really love to travel but usually like to keep some days to relax at home. You might take short trips, returning to sleep in your own comfy bed. Some take half the day just getting out the door and wonder why they don’t see as much as they had hoped. Plan a start time and take time to choose where you would like to eat since you are a foodie. You need to plan ahead and not get too emotional if things don’t always go as you’d like. Travel near water or somewhere romantic. A cruise would be perfect!
LEO: You love warmth, being a child of the Sun. Also, you love bright lights and sparkling people. Discipline yourself to save the money to enjoy the comforts of a lovely, luxurious vacation. You would love to rub shoulders with celebrities and lots of night life. Getting a good suntan on a beautiful beach suits you. Give thought to the clothes, jewelry and shoes that you will need, because you are inclined to over-pack. Allow your family or co-travelers to have a say in where they would like to go.
VIRGO: You tend to wait too long to accumulate the funds or the time to take a real vacation. But when its time to go, you really might surprise your friends with the great trip you plan, like maybe a safari in Africa or an exotic flight to some tropical island. You will feel you are making up for lost time! Take a lot of pictures and enjoy some extravagances. A new side of you will emerge and then later you will enjoy reminiscing about your trip for many years.
LIBRA: You have trouble deciding where to go and then might still change your mind, or sometimes circumstances cause you to cancel your plans. If someone raves about a place they have visited, you are influenced to go and see if for yourself. Do plan relaxation time and forget about those tours that cause you to rush. Go where you can be waited on and pampered. Your ruler Venus wants you to have all possible comforts, including fine food and interesting companionship. Bring a lot of money, you’ll need it!
SCORPIO: You need a vacation that provides beneficial changes to your usual routine with results that last all year. You can fall in love with a special place and even have a holiday romance if thats your style. You plan dramatic, intense vacations with many adventures. Save unnecessary emotional upsets by realizing that vacation romances are usually just that. Choose holiday companions with discretion. Foreign countries attract you and music festivals and theater performances. Music and drama are a great relief for your moody and secretive nature. Your ruler Pluto seeks vacations that may have some danger involved somewhere on the trip but take care not to return all tired out.
SAGITTARIUS: You love action-packed vacations and participating in or attending sports events. The mountains and rugged outdoors attract you. You require challenges and physical activity on your trip. Try not to be impatient with family members or friends who need time to enjoy some relaxing time on a beach. Take separate vacations occasionally. Being so outgoing, you like good companionship and will meet people easily when you travel.
CAPRICORN: You need to leave your work behind and don’t read email or answer work related calls while you are away unless you absolutely must. You look so forward to escaping work but often bring projects along that need completing. You need a relaxing vacation almost more than any other sign. Something often holds you back from fully enjoying yourself and this is the Saturn-influence on your sign. You are practical and don’t always want to spend money on frivolity, which can impede full enjoyment for you. But it’s money well-spent for you because you are such a hard worker, that you deserve a break.
AQUARIUS: You are probably the most spontaneous traveler of the zodiac. Uranus your ruler often erupts suddenly in your life and being a humanitarian, you may find yourself visiting or helping a sick friend or looking after a family member. This frequently cuts your vacation time short for your own relaxation. Sometimes you have to forego your original plans due to unexpected events. As you age, you will spend more time relaxing at home, but its better to get away and unwind where there is peace and quiet and also meet interesting people who will provide an interesting discussion with you.
PISCES: You like to plan fabulous vacations with romantic appeal and water nearby. You like new places and can enjoy yourself no matter where you go. You don’t want to be cramped and so will choose spacious accommodations. You like a mix of pleasant company and also lots of time for quiet introspection. You are quite impressionable so choose your vacation spot wisely. You always meet people and you know money spent on vacations can save money spent on doctors. Vacations are so therapeutic for Pisces that they need to get away as often as possible.
Doesn’t this put you in the mood to plan a trip somewhere?

Snow is gently falling on my blog, but there is no snow falling here in Phoenix Arizona! I remember growing up in Northern New Jersey and all the snowfalls and ice storms that would close the schools. We loved those days and would be outside sledding and making snowmen and just enjoying the day off from school. But that changed once I was older and had to drive to work on snowy, icy roads. If the snow would begin falling in the morning, I would watch it through the windows and worry all day about getting home later and how long it would take with all the traffic.
The final straw was the time I drove home from an event during the early afternoon in a snow storm. The highway was very slippery and I went into a skid, then a spin, and then crossed the road several times hitting the guard rails on each side of the road. When I finally came to a stop, I was amazed that I didn’t hit another car! I continued driving with my knees shaking, heading uphill to my home. As I turned onto the street right before mine, my wheels were spinning and would not make it up the incline. I had to back down and try several times hitting the accelerator and then making a swing left onto my street finally and into my driveway. I was shaking all over, in disbelief that I was safely home. My car was pretty dented from hitting those guardrails but I was not dented at all. I truly believe my angels protected me that day!
I resolved that day to move to a warmer climate and be done with driving in snow forever. The following summer I was able to take a trip to Arizona to visit my brother. I spent a week here and fell in love with it, even in the heat! The mountains totally surround the Phoenix valley and I had a feeling of protection. I made the decision that I must move here and went back home knowing that I would live here somehow.
The following year after being divorced for several years, I happened to meet a gentleman at a dance who had gone to Arizona State University and now lived in New Jersey, but always had the desire to go back to the Phoenix area to live. As fate would have it, two years later we were married. We bought a motor home and moved cross country together. Our combined five kids visit us and we visit them and our grandchildren in New Jersey and Pennsylvania every year. One of them drove our car west and moved to San Diego for a few years. He then moved to beautiful Sedona where he has lived happily now for over 20 years. He was happy to leave the cold weather behind too!
We have now lived in Arizona 31 years and the only time we see snow anymore is on television or on Christmas cards and here on my Blog page! I had my fill of it and can go north to Flagstaff anytime if I should want to see it.
Happy New Year!
I posted this with different photos 3 years ago and it got a lot of views. I decided to repost it today!
We are living in wonderland, but we rarely notice it. The easiest way.to spiritually awaken is to look at the world around us with new eyes… to see things as if for the first time and the last time!
Usually we become so entangled in the story we tell ourselves about life that we don’t notice the deep mystery of existence. We live as if we know what is going on, when actually life is an enormous enigma. For spiritual awakening we need to step into the mystery. A simple way to do this is to focus on the present moment. When we do, our state of consciousness spontaneously changes because we come out of the story and into the mystery. The story exists in time, so when we bring our attention into the present moment there is no story about the past and the future. This can be a great relief. In the here and now, we don’t understand life with words; we experience the mystery of the moment.
Spiritual awakening is intensely pleasurable, because we truly appreciate all we see and hear and touch in this world of wonders. When we are superficially awake, we feel the enjoyment available to us only partially. When we are deeply awake; however, we find ourselves really savoring the pleasures of life. The body wakes up to how sweet it is to be alive.
Appreciate colors and sounds and feelings. They become rich and vibrant. The world starts to sparkle. There is an experience of profound gratitude that arises when we see how glorious life really is!

I am excited to add a new deck to my Tarot Card collection, “The Cat’s Eye Tarot”. These were created by a female Veterinarian and are very beautiful! I am getting familiar with them and will soon be doing Tarot Card readings incorporating these with my other favorite decks.
It seems that readings can be done at a distance just as well as in person. So, if you have a question or need advice, I would be happy to work with you! Look above at my services on the menu bar.
Here is a sample of these beautiful colorful cards.
After designing my own deck of Astrology cards, I can appreciate all the work that went into these cards and I love cats too!
It seems that everybody wants to find love. This is the most asked question in readings, followed by career questions!
You can use The Astrology Game of Cards to find a love match.
Play with 2 to 4 players.
Deal out all the cards to the players.
Each player looks through their cards and must begin by pulling out their Sun sign, as many of this sign as you have. Lay them on the table.
Next each player should consult the enclosed Elements Card to see if their Sun sign is in the Fire, Air, Earth or Water group. Notice the other two signs sharing your group.
Look through your cards and pull out all of those signs in your Element and lay them on the table.
Notice that you are in harmony with those other 2 signs whether or not you have any in your hand.
Cancerians share qualities with the Scorpios and Pisces, all being sensitive water ‘feeling’ signs.
Gemini shares the Air sign group with Libra and Aquarius. All are intellectually inclined and enjoy a stimulating conversation.
Taurus shares the Earth sign group with Virgo and Capricorn, all being practical and down to earth signs who take care of the business of life.
Aries share qualities with the Leos and Sagittarians, all being action-oriented fire signs who don’t hesitate to get out there and get things started.
To find more love matches, you need to know your Rising Sign, also known as the Ascendant. Look across the chart wheel and find the sign on the cusp or beginning of the 7th house, That is your partnership or marriage house and there is a strong attraction to others with that sun sign or Rising Sign.
If you are a Leo Rising, ruling your personal house, then you will be attracted to Aquarians, the sign across the zodiac for a potential partner.
If you have a Capricorn Rising sign, you will be very attracted to Cancerians, the sign across the zodiac wheel.
Look at the sign where your Venus is. That symbol is the little circle with the cross under it. The sign listed with it is your love sign, so you can easily fall in love with someone having that Sun sign or Rising Sign.
For Example Venus in Virgo feels romance with the Virgo Sun Signs or Rising Signs.
You can get a chart wheel done for just $6.00 if you order the Astrology cards and want to add this love match game to all the other great games you can play with these unique cards. I will need your date, time and city of birth and $20 + $6.00 payable through Paypal or money order.
For a full chart analysis, please check my pricing schedule from the menu bar above.
You can learn a lot about your good love match while you play a game. Everyone counts up how many cards they laid down to see the winner of the game. Play it again and again with all your friends!! Love is always in the air!
This week I decided to do a bit of research and look through my records at the hundreds of birth charts I have done through the years. I was wondering about the sun signs of the folks who came to me to have their chart done. Which sun sign showed up the most? Which sun sign showed up the least?
All twelve signs were represented in good numbers but:
PISCES were highest
Followed very closely by LEOS
LIBRANS were third
Second to last were CAPRICORNS
and last were the TAURUS folks
Of course, this is just a small cross section of the population and my personal statistics only; yet it is most interesting to me.
Does this surprise you?
