Psychic Pep Talk for August 2014 Begins Now

August 2014 Jupiter conjunct Sun

August 2014 Jupiter conjunct Sun

This month’s theme is: “growing in power”. The sky’s the limit if you let yourself grow in power this August! If you are ripe to expand, current planetary influences can jet-propel you.

Beginning July 24-26th, with a Sun-Jupiter conjunction and then Mars moving into Scorpio, signifying things happen faster and move forward more easily now.

Be “all in”, whatever you do this month. Be willing in September to devote time to new developments.   Willingly give details that add to your credibility and make sure they’re available. Willingness is the key ingredient to moving forward in August.

To increase your willingness, take a moment to wish yourself the best. Think something like:  “I’m open to the best happening to me now…let what’s best for me find me today and let me recognize it. Together let us be brighter than before.” Make a statement about whatever makes you feel open to expansion and the best happening…

Be leery of over-scheduling.  Another likely circumstance is that you will be living up close and personal with new truths, which can take a lot of energy and a lot of time.  You can feel alternately vulnerable and visible in on-stage August, meanwhile working steadily towards a better place you can see.

Be open to change and willing to act on desire… and be sure to act on any desire you sense leads  to something important.

Is This Happening to any of You? Musing on Tuning Out

Although I have worked as a full-time professional psychic counselor for 35 years, I have no trouble turning it on and off like a faucet: at will.  It is still true it is like a door I have to voluntarily walk through, to be in the state to do healing and counseling work. But what has changed recently, is a developing intolerance to witness any kind of awful thing going on around me. I am shielding myself and retreating from suffering, and I think the recent headline that helped me tune out even more was, “Elephant Cries after 50 Years of Abuse.” The story probably has a happy ending, but whatever rash events around the world give me, that headline turned into a serious illness. I appear to have whatever invulnerability I had to hearing and seeing and watching cruelty enacted in life or on screen. The only control I have is to not pay attention. If I care about issues I could donate money.

This illustrates another way the theory works, that individual change happens and out of that comes collective change.  Personal change happens when a person stops investing their attention in one reality and shifts to another.  Collective change could happen not only through, for instance, individual efforts and their banding to form grassroots movements and change conditions, but because masses of individuals withdraw from the collective and in some way build their own alternative reality. Like Silicon Valley…

Elissa’s July 2014 Client Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Santa Fe is nearing the epicenter of its Summer cultural explosion, and the sounds of daily goings-on waft up from the Plaza. July’s big event is the International Folk Art Mart (…be at the opening dress parade and dance at the Railyard Thursday night!) although, now every month seems to have more celebrations. And more new music venues, even free concerts way down on Cerrillos Road!

Another neat new addition to gatherings aound town are food trucks selling some excellent food, especially the one from the Street Food Institute.

Coming in August is the highly anticipated Indian Market, held for the first time in history by two different organizations, one being a break-away of Native Americans who want to run their own show. That new one is called the Indigenous Fine ArtMarket or IFAM, and will be held at the Railyard.  It kicks off with an interesting-sounding event called a “Glow Dance Party” on August 20th at the Den.

My July began with something new, a three day Creative Journey workshop. It was fun and exciting and kind of like being in magic camp. I’ll be doing more circles and workshops soon, when I catch up with myself. Dreaming up magical and healing things to do with people is very exhilarating! And challenging in the same way private sessions used to be challenging: following what I receive, and not what I conceive.

I can’t imagine a better place to do this work than Santa Fe, people are refreshed by a lot of different factors unique to the area. I’ll post participants’ comments on my website’s workshop page.

I hope you have a delightful Summer wherever you are, happy trails and may they take you to pleasant surprises.

Elissa

Announcements: Two clients of mine have published new books on spiritual growth that are loaded with self-help techniques.
Suzie Doscher, a personal and business coach based in Switzerland, wrote, “BALANCE, a Practical Handbook for Life’s Difficult Moments”, and Cathy Thomas from Cincinnati, an artist with a 25 year background in trauma therapy, co-wrote “Spiritual Prescriptions for Turbulent Times.”

Here are authors’ descriptions and link to each:

Spiritual Prescriptions for Turbulent Times is a resource guide for transforming your energy and helping you deal with life’s challenges. Two psychotherapists draw from alternative and non-traditional healing methods to offer the most effective strategies for restoring your emotional balance.
BALANCE, a Practical Handbook for Life’s Difficult Moments, is a fresh approach to self-help. Written as a “self-coaching” guide, it helps you discover yourself as you read and do exercises, selecting the topics you really need help with in the moment.”

New Tarot Card Meaning Article“Predicting Your Trip

I occasionally add to the tarot resource pages on my website-this Summer peoples’ travels led to some discoveries.
Spiritual Guidance and Horoscopes for July and Summer 2014

A lot happens in July, it’s a long and eventful month. For individuals and countries, fateful decisions and directions begin to shape up, potentially life-changing.

Best goal: Get Healthy

Best action to take: Suspend self-doubt for one month and surrender to your heart’s desire. Don’t stop yourself in July.

Meet new friends! Meet new friends!

Jupiter in Leo: July 16th-August 15th. From inner growth to outer…hearts open, individual people doing great things make a big impact, and people gain new courage to be themselves.

Here’s a poem from the spirit of Jupiter in Cancer, where it’s been for the last year, causing people to grow up emotionally:

(Jupiter in Cancer sez about moving from Cancer to Leo):
“Didn’t you get more free?
Didn’t you get more free with me?
Aren’t you glad it’s over?
‘Cause
Now you can be that rover,

Winging it towards new dreams.”

These last days of Jupiter in Cancer (up until July 16th), make peace with somebody! Let go of a hurt, release the past, be your Bigger Self.

At some point between the June and July newsletters, I posted an article about Summer, (the  Here it is from my blog:

Psychic Guidance for Summer Success
This is a “go for it” Summer where what you want, and believe you are supposed to be doing, requires breaking through your own limitations and displaying more flexibility. Go For It! There is no better time to follow your own drumbeat and re-direct yourself onto a meaningful path. Here is more specific guidance to ensure your personal success:
Follow Through:

Keep up with what’s in progress, and take care of unfinished business. (The Summer beginning when Mercury is retrograde suggests it’s not a great time to begin something brand new, but to maintain what you’ve already started.)
Embrace the Unknown:

Expect obscurity and murkiness to mark the beginning of your progress through this Summer’ objectives. People walk themselves out of tight situations by their willingness to change and endure uncertainty.

Call on your Guides: The potential for spiritual development is high, so if you ever wanted to experiment with just what kind of help is personally available to you, try calling on your spiritual guides this summer! It’s as simple as being curious and receptive and willing to expand your circle of support. Let yourself be empty and in the present, have an open heart, and permit whatever has your best interests in mind to give you a message.

July Psychic Messages for the Astrological Signs
This month’s divination experiment: A couple of months ago I wrote about Stonehenge, and how it may have been used to attune people to a larger consciousness. (The New York Times published an article June 16th, about newly discovered
sound features of sacred sites.)
Perhaps I was influenced by learning that, because in a horoscope-making session for July’s newsletter, a new way of getting messages spontaneously ocurred: by making a tone. I would make a little melody or tone for each element and astrological sign, and  then I’d get a message. (I’m assuming the messages are relevant to the signs; please tell me, dear reader, if  they are not!) What follows is what I got this new way, except for the Air signs-their message was the first one and came through the Speaking Stones.) Below this set are more July horoscopes done in more usual ways.

Fire signs: Aries is fired up, saying, “I really want this, I really want this-your determination is awesome. Leo: You’re happy and stronger, but you’ll be happier if you don’t go to extremes, and come to love being able to function with a steady strong pulse, and not a wildly vacillating one. Be smart, calm, strong, wise, and willing to change. Sagittarius: You’re focused and could be in a hurry to reach your goals. Spiritual experiences are enlighting if you’re willing to go off on your own and have a vision and be out of context for awhile. Spiritual growth is a pleasant journey now. Seek new connections-a new goal can be realized in November. (Message from making tones for each sign.)

Water signs are capable of seeing deep truths now. Cancer: I’m happier than usual, yay! Scorpio: High flying! Wheeling and dealing! Excitement abounds…Pisces: What’s new stretches you, but then you have had past lives that are now inner resources; inherent ability is yours and comes through. (Message from making tones for each sign.)

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: There’s a lot of activity around home for you this month, and it will feel like a safe haven. Knowing your limits is another way to create a safe haven. You’ll need to recharge many times, especially around July 18th. Your creativity takes on a life of its own, and you’ll get signs from the world about concerning where it can take you. (Message from the Speaking Stones)

Earth signs: Taurus: Breakthrough! Positive! Hopeful…and you see a higher place for yourself. (Just wait, it’s coming!) Virgo: You should be plowing into something new, and overturning old connections for what’s valuable. Money and commerce are on your mind. Capricorn: Expect a huge growth spurt in July, it could even be astonishing. (Message from making tones for each sign).

Spiritual Guidance for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs for July 2014

(I actually forgot I’d already written horoscopes for July, the week before my three-day Creative Journey workshop on June 29th. I did the ones below on July 1st):

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: Take it easy. Stop worrying about the future, and take care of stuff that obviously needs to be taken care of. Keep taking care of things and don’t worry where it leads to. This is a month not to doubt yourself. You cannot see the future right now and don’t try to-focus on improving your health, if you don’t see anything else that needs doing.

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: An old identity is all used up. It is absolutely clear you can move into the future with a stronger Self. Now you can do things you couldn’t do before. A new chapter has conclusively begun and calls on new courage and character, which you now have. You can count on yourself to go the distance in a new direction.

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air sgns: Some problems are over! You get to graduate; there is a way to a place you belong and it makes you happier. Excellent signs for marriage and in general being fulfilled in new roles.

Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Earth signs: You establish yourself in new digs, or change your environment to make it reflect what moves you. It’s hard to do anything now but what is heartfelt. You are pushed in new directions by your own evolutionary impulses. Keep on going, everything’s fine.

Tarot Card Meanings: Predicting Your Trip

Before I take off for somewhere, I often do a three card cut to get a “trip omen.” Over the years I’ve noticed that certain tarot cards show up when, for instance, I’m going to miss the plane or the connecting flight.  Tarot cards are quick to point out some bummer up ahead.

However, a common phenomenon with the tarot is that it reacts to immediate circumstances that obliterate the more relevant long-term results of what you are asking about.  Anything that causes a strong emotional reaction  can loom large in a tarot reading.

“How is my vacation going to go? ” can look pretty disappointing  if in the first 24 hours, the jolly vacationer missed their connecting flight, then missed some event they were due at, etc.   It helps  to look at which cards fall on which placement on the divinatory map (the layout), to know what trip difficulties the cards are pointing out. Accurate tarot card reading is a combination of intuition, and understanding the properties of the four elements and natural phenomena each card relates to, in combination with where the card falls on the map.

It’s especially unnerving to look at an unsettling tarot card layout about transportation. Recently, I had a clarifying personal experience about the sometimes trigger-happy reaction of tarot cards to an upcoming event. I saw this in action when I picked my brother up at the airport the other day.  Cutting the cards on his flight, it looked like he wasn’t going to get here! The 3 of Swords was in Earth, a final comment that can mean: “…the  plan you expect to be carried out, is not.” (More detailed discussion  on post about “scary tarot cards” here. )

But my brother arrived just fine, and on time. What was the tarot picking up on?

Here’s what it most likely was: My brother had a circuitous route to Santa Fe, that brought him to St. Louis, Mo. , then Las Vegas,  Nevada, and then New Mexico. Perhaps because he can be an absent-minded professor engrossed in his work (www.geneheyman.com), the details that New Mexico was the last stop didn’t register, and he was shocked at first that the plane was headed  to Las Vegas. Have you ever thought something was wrong about your flight while you are actually on the plane? It causes a very big adrenalin rush.

I believe those brief but disruptive emotions caused the cluster of distressing Air cards  that reflected his flight. (air= the mental plane, your thoughts) You always have to look at what element the trouble is showing up in: if it’s in air, it can be simply anxiety that doesn’t turn out to be based on reality, like a nightmare.

Leaving New Mexico a few days later, I knew my brother would make his departure flight, even though it was a close call because we were late, and I dropped him off outside the airport moments  before the plane began to board.  I knew he made it through security and to the gate because the tarot characterized his trip with two sixes.   Six is ruled by the Sun, and in fire (action) it showed the successful action of getting to the airport, i.e.  driving like a bat out of hell. As a conclusion card, Six in water (environment, emotions) showed he’d be successful in both meeting and reuniting with people; in other words, successfully getting where he was going and happily reuniting with his party. (For details on what success looks like on the tarot, click here.)

Announcing The Creative Journey Workshop in Santa Fe June 29-July 1

Divinating in the Circle

Divinating in the Circle

The Circles I’ve been holding in Santa Fe and around the country have evolved into a workshop with time for more unusual and profound experiences…I’m pleased to present The Creative Journey Workshop!

This workshop includes exercises and experiences to explore and strengthen our true communication skills. Expanding our self-awareness and awakening to ways we naturally connect, promotes among other things, sharing more of ourselves, and experiencing more love.

YOUR STORY: Within themselves, people are aware they are healing, changing, and moved to fulfill what’s in their heart to do.  We explore your story’s themes in an intuitive art-making process called The Transformative Art Cards. Other tools and processes can bring resolve about specific issues important to you now.

A TOOLKIT FOR YOUR PERSONAL JOURNEY: Some of the exercises and practices are from my own psychic counseling and spiritual healing practice, and many are from shamans I’ve studied with, for energy balancing, communing with Nature, self-healing, and receiving spiritual guidance. Some exercises are outside, please bring comfortable clothes and shoes.

Includes PSYCHIC MESSAGE AND SPIRITUAL HEALING CIRCLE. My goal is to give you clarifying and empowering insights, healing, and practice in accessing your own intuition. Specific questions answered. (Private psychic counseling and healing sessions available within workshop timeframe.)

REVIEWS FROM CIRCLE PARTICIPANTS:

“What a wonderful circle we had last night!  Despite the power failure it all was just magical and so personally rewarding and reassuring for me!Thank you so much for providing your insight and intuition and helping all of us move along in the direction we wish to go, and the one the Universe wants for us!It was  important to do the movement part too I believe, it helps cement the ideas and so useful for release of old ideas and habits! Also, it was a very fun evening!  Nice space.With affection and appreciation, Connie”

“What I got was a positively profound clarity with respect to who I am, where I’m heading and the energies I need to be conscious of as I move along.  And as well, Elissa gave me practical insight into how to manifest my fuller nature.  I am deeply grateful for the whole experience and certainly feel I received everything and MORE than I could have expected.” Patricia

“I loved the circle and the way it all played out, just like it was supposed to. I felt it was a perfect closing  to our trip. We both read our letters to each other in the morning. It was very cathartic, we laughed and cried. I’m grateful to share this growth and journey with my best friend. You were a beautiful surprise, thank you!”

Thanks again for facilitating the wonderful healing circle on Saturday. I am very fortunate to have come across your brochure. I thought the format was awesome and I really do love how we attract the right people at the right time. I felt a high level of resonance with everyone in the group and I benefited from their readings as well as my own. I got a lot from these two hours. –Sophia, Oregon

Elissa held a circle workshop for our group of sorority sisters visiting Santa Fe for a reunion.  We women have known each other since the mid-seventies, and have quite a bond.  Elissa was able to bring us even closer together by sharing her unique healing techniques, insights, and intuitive card readings.  We experienced a group reading using OH cards that was amazingly accurate and full of hope.  Thank you Elissa

What’s going on in Santa Fe on the weekend:

Friday June 27th, Saturday and Sunday: Santa Fe Open Studio weekend.
