The last two circles in October were especially animated, one in California and one here in Santa Fe, all women and of different ages. Something that particularly impressed me is the natural mojo of a circle of women, gathering as we were for some kind of spiritual communion and healing work. It was as if underneath the surface, lifetimes of arcane knowledge glimmered through, the body and soul of each ready to assume instinctive, magic-making, energy-raising ways. Women’s circles can be exciting! I hope to do more and want to offer one a month, each 2nd Wednesday. The first Wednesday women’s circle is November 13th.
Arising naturally out of the latest circles, there are a couple of new procedures that I want to add to the circle format—I think they make for a richer, more results-oriented beginning and end. In the end, replacing a group divination with the Speaking Stones, the last activity is a group divination and psychometry reading from objects each person brings to the circle, a symbol of what they want to manifest. How the stones are now used is in the beginning, to introduce a dialogue with Nature and the insights and guidance we attract.
Listing the November circles, I was inspired to mention the astrological significators of the day they occur—here are some astrological omens for the days ahead, markers of likely themes in the circles but also an indication of what kind of ideas and experiences you might have at this time:
November 11th, Monday night, 7 pm to about 9
11-11: Mercury trine Neptune, good for visioning and inspired ideas, and Moon trine Saturn, revealing what it takes to make something happen.
Women’s Circle, every 2nd Wednesday of the month, November 13th.
Neptune goes stationery direct, when dreams can move forward, stronger paths are forged, and original creativity spikes. For women only.
November 16th, Saturday night, 7 pm to about 9.
Full Moon Circle: The full moon is a good time to commune with your spirit, let go of the past, and get aligned with what’s in your heart. Saturday night’s full moon in late Taurus supports integrating new behavior that works better, breaking habits, being bold but not risky, and being lucky because you’re nice. Psychic question and answer circle, guided meditation, energy-release work, intuition development, goal energizing.
If you’re interested in coming to a circle, they’re small (4–6), and you both get individual attention and a group experience. Here’s a description:
“An experiential intuition workshop and spiritual healing circle for 4-6. Strengthen your imagination, will and desired personal goal. Support your creative self in a circle for spiritual communion and healing. Clarify what’s important and what you want to create. Learn to access your happy, healthy, balanced self. Includes clairvoyant reading, tarot, divination, healing, intuition development and guided imagery exercises. November 11th, 7-8:45 pm, $45 plus tax. Other November circles are November 13th and November 16th.”
PLEASE BRING AN INTENTION TO WORK WITH, A STATEMENT WRITTEN OUT ABOUT WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU NOW, AND ALSO BRING A SMALL OBJECT THAT REPRESENTS IT.
Led by psychic counseling and healing practitioner Elissa Heyman: “We can act on inspiration when we get clear about what we truly want. Then, we can genuinely bless our path and invest in it. In the circle, each person sees what it takes to achieve their heart’s desire, gets deeper insight about what is personally fulfilling, and receives what the Universe has to say that supports their creative path in life. Ultimately we create a battery out of the circle, to charge and bless each person in its center.”

My newsletter is very late! And it’s still not written, although the August 2013 predictions were gathered around the last full moon. Santa Fe is very busy at the moment, and today I want to relax and go to the feast day at Santo Domingo pueblo with–it’s the biggest in New Mexico, with over 1500 dancers, so this will be a short report:
Briefly, the big excitement in my life is how much fun I had with my three experimental circlework sessions this July. They were magical, insightful, and energizing for all. The format is a series of activities designed to enhance our goals and our understanding of what motivates us. We work with energy and intuition, our bodies’ wisdom, and what we have to give and receive from the other circle members. It’s wilder than a class, though, with music and dancing (or just movement) at the end. I’ll be doing two more in August, Friday August 23rd and Sunday August 25th , see below for details.
Santa Fe continues to become a better place to eat and shop, and finally the monsoon season has brought some rain. Indian Market is coming up, the Santa Fe bandstand offers the whole town free entertainment Monday through Thursday…life is sweet here, come visit!
I’m available for psychic counseling and healing all Summer, and will be in the Boston area mid-October.
Have a wonderful month ahead,
CircleWork sessions: Limited to 5 (in my office at 227 E. Palace, upstairs in Suite T North); $40, 7:15-8:45 approximately; for more information and to register please email email@example.com or call 505-982-3294. There will be more information on my website soon (there’s some now) at www.elissaheyman.com/circles.html
August 2013 Psychic Insights
For everyone: August’s dynamic, volatile forces help people let loose with what’s inside them and express themselves in creative and passionate ways. A hidden influence is more around the corner: people cannot see—there are no really obvious signs—of much change in the offing; the new plans for how things are run by the powers that be. Bold actions will be taken.
Out in the world, it also looked like there would be big trouble in October-November connected to wars simmering now in August; a lot of people lose their lives. And up ahead, three foreign powers that don’t include the U.S. form an agreement; they want greater control and autonomy from the West.
Personal guidance: Like July was, it is a potent, active time with so many big and influential planets in water signs: things really happen; things move, things change. However, it’s a long hard slug uphill if you are fighting about anything in the past.Re the future: leave alone what you can’t fill in, you don’t have to fill in the blanks—only deal with what’s working and flowing in your life. People are reactive and not thinking reasonably, necessarily, in August. Making peace your priority can ward off any hotheaded encounters.
Psychic Horoscopes for August 2013—Read Your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Fire signs can be contemplating a big yet empowering change that takes you into unknown territory. Your best life requires courage; to get what you want, you can’t back down from your highest goals. This month you’re likely dealing with temporary blocks that make you work out problems and find solutions. You can make what you want happen but it takes working through some issues. Take care not to get in your own way through thinking you have to do too much, or know too much. What you must do is radically trust your intuition: you’ll have to be bold, you’ll have to be brave, you’ll have to be willing to change aspects of your life and what you’re doing. You need to probably take a trip in relation to your next project, or you might need to see something or show up in person to get something done related to goals and projects.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You have happy prospects to look forward to, more balance in your life, good partnerships, and the possibility of long-term success with what is forming now. Both long-term and short-term realities are promisingly positive. Although you don’t know the answers, circumstances just feel better with the opportunities you have now.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Things are aligned to officially begin. People are going to want you to participate with them, and there’s a role for you to play you become aware of if you’re not already. It’s also a good time to settle down and decide upon a course of action and plans. Also, you should stick to your guns: do it your way, that’s what works.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): There’s some opposition to getting your way or getting what you want. You might think you should get more for what you’re giving. There can be a conflict of interests, or conflict about your domain. You’re frustrated by not being able to see around the corner. Something you expect to be long term or sustaining may not be….you’re not sure. You might be worried about finances—but actually, it looks like thing will be just fine.
The Santa Fe tourist season is springing to life: I know because there’s a sharp increase in phone messages I can’t understand. Usually it’s because a visitor’s cellphone is cutting out as they drive through the mountains and they don’t realize the numbers didn’t record. If you ever wondered why I didn’t call you back, that’s why!
Today the New Mexican announced that music and dancing at Santa Fe Plaza Bandstand will start two weeks earlier on June 21st Great news for visitors and locals alike, it’s one the best free summer scenes in America. I’ll be just coming back from Peru …I’m looking forward to a couple of weeks of spiritual teachings up in the Andes. By the way, for anyone coming to Santa Fe June 8-21, my wonderful apartment will be available for rent.
I’m updating all articles and content on my website, please check out the new articles on intuition and the intuition’s “Yes and No”. How fast life zips by and decisions have to be made, a good working relationship with one’s intuition is an invaluable asset.
Have a wonderful month wherever you are, I hope Spring or Summer brings you this way,
ITINERARY: In-person psychic counseling and spiritual healing appointments in New York May 10th-16th and in Greenwich, Connecticut on May 11th. Please get in touch to schedule, 505-982-3294 or firstname.lastname@example.org
(Except for May 9-16 and June 8-21, I’ll be available in Santa Fe)
Psychic Messages and Horoscopes for May 2013: Time to Raise Up
Time to raise up: Many shift their consciousness significantly into to a more loving and connected personal reality. But not without letting go of a lot. There is a pressure to shift into freedom. Individuals and nations must do something, it feels like—they feel the pressure to manifest change, and raise their level of consciousness.
May has some dizzying heighths and depths. It’s magical, and the scene of powerful changes within people, where they just let go of the past and let something new happen. Chronic procrastinators might find unusual determination. Eclipses are cosmic opportunities to exit old arenas and enter new ones.
The powerful and gusty eclipse season rages April 25th to May 25th. Our inner strength is called upon to keep up with all the changes and deadlines. Stay focused on positive goals to ground yourself. In the name of doing one’s best work, keep in mind what you want and release all your previous stories and guilt and preoccupations.
(Some people might fear what comes with release of their stories and past: emptiness. The spirits of May say: “ You’re being asked to empty yourself so that more of the light can shine through you. See what magic happens when you leave behind everything but NOW.”)
During the first full moon eclipse, I was over at a friend’s house with a couple of people, and we were consulting the house oracle, the great “I Ching Workbook” by R.L. Wing. We wanted an eclipse message and guidance around its impact on people.
The hexagram that came up was MODERATION. It described moderation in some unusual ways: “It must be understood that acting in MODERATION means not only limiting the obvious excesses, but also exposing yourself to new areas of experience.” According to the I Ching, being tolerant of everything this May, including “peoples’ weaknesses and inferior elements”—getting a lot of different experiences in without judging them and being tolerant, was the best way to navigate May.
Then I went outside to walk a few dogs and myself. Under the full moon rising in the hills east of Santa Fe, I came up with a new divination system! Hope it fits you all:
Psychic Horoscopes for May 2013
Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Don’t be hasty. Weed out the rot. Polish up what isn’t great. Don’t be heavy– travel light. Don’t tell long stories. Feel free to advise others only if you have conquered the subject yourself. A blessing from the spirit guides of the Fire Signs: “We will always be here, helping you, guiding you into the unknown. And it’s into the unknown that you should be going.”
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Any weak links in the chain stand out and need to be strengthened. Don’t be afraid to concentrate on just one thing and build it up. It’s better to be pregnant with something at which you wish to succeed, rather than be trying to push it out into the world. “Beyond belief! Amazing!” you might think about some of the things that are happening to you now.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You are in a protected place, the right place to deal with whatever emerges in your life. “Bring it on!” should be your mantra. Bigger things want to be released from within you. This passage in your life might journey through the dark but it leads to a lighted home.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Your spirit guide’s advice: Go to places where “they know ye not”, it’s educational and could lead to career opportunities. Wherever you are going, literally or figuratively, start to get ready. Here’s how: Step #1: DROP ALL ARGUMENTS. Step #2: DROP ALL SELF-DOUBT. Step #3: EXPECT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME, AND PLAN FOR IT.
It’s the middle of February, a “murky month”, according to my current newsletter predictions, when it’s hard to tell whether projects are dead or alive—which could apply to the “will-it-won’t-it-happen” U.S. sequester, or our slow business, or whether we’re going to find out if we got that job.
Add Mercury retrograde to that, coming up soon! It’s first cycle this year is February 23rd to March 16th(and it’s already started, the time you can expect to have to return things you bought that didn’t work, or on the plus side, get things “righter” which is more what the planets suggest this Mercury retrograde is about). FYI, the other Mercury retrograde periods this year are June 9th-25th, and October 1st-20th.
It’s a big sign from the Universe to take it one day at a time, and this period especially, we are asked to accept our workload, whatever it is. Our goals need action, the plans they generate demand implementation—one day at a time, the less multi-tasking the better, because being thorough is part of the recipe for success.
Re the sequester, it would be unusual for a large body like the government to radically alter with Saturn and Mercury retrograde, although the meaning of the planets themselves could spell out “restriction” which the sequester would bring . It is either an opportunity to stabilize or de-stabilize people…it is still murky. However, I have a lot of faith in the intelligence and will of President Obama to steer things towards stability.
Re slow business, I think in the U.S. we’re hitting bottom, consolidating, and getting stronger.
Re people looking for work: There’s no divination about obfuscatory February 2013 that looks reassuring, there looks to be a lot of anxiety floating around in the air. It’s a time to build personal strength and mind your thoughts—as Reverend James, a wise man from New Orleans once said to me behind his really dark glasses, “The direction you look is the way you are going.” I got the impression that in August, people were collectively and generally more positive about their prospects.
An important message from the stars now is that it’s really easy to see what’s out of order and what needs to be done—what is lacking, and how to fix it. The celestial phenomena also causes a lot of emotion to arise, as truth is revealed. This time has the potential to bring out the strength in us, to help us go about what needs to be done in a balanced way, mindful of our goals but considerate of how we work best.
President’s Day, February 18th, has striking planetary moves: The Sun enters Pisces moments after the moon and Jupiter conjunct in Gemini (Oh, the dreams we will have!), and then get-it-right Saturn goes retrograde, meaning we all will come to see how to make things stronger in our lives, and we may be stripped of what we can’t take care of, too. This planetary movement is one impetus for 2013 exhortation, “Simplify”.
Here’s a horoscope for President’s Day, and it addresses first people with goals and creative projects, and then everyone:
“Anyone trying to manifest something with a lot of moving parts, is going to get a big leg up from the planets. Its a special sign for people who are quite far along in their creations and projects, that elements can pull together like never before, to create something never seen! People get it right that have been trying a long time. At the same time, anything getting in anyone’s way stands out like a sore thumb and must be dealt with, it’s a time to weed and prune. Seeing what needs to be done to get things right just got easy.”
Note about the next Magic Circle Intuition Class: The next class is February 28th, Venus conjunct Neptune, a very good day for psychic and healing energy work.

There are a lot of different things that can block intuition. This article discusses two: early childhood experiences, and other peoples’ opinions.
What do people need to know about their intuition, first and foremost? You are born with it, it is part of the original design. It is not acquired through practice, or some process, although practice and processes, especially visualization techniques, help to develop it.
Intuitive flashes, psychic dreams, and other consciousness phenomena like deja vu, happen automatically. The way us humans are designed, in the blink of an eye we can see farther than the present, and through appearances to a deeper truth.
What happens to a lot of people, judging from thirty plus years of clients, is that they are dissuaded early on from using their intuition. Early precognitive abilities blurted out into a fearful world of adults not set up to deal with, for instance, death, can cause people to turn off their extra sensory perception. Many times I’ve heard tales of what happens when little kids announce something like, “Grandma’s going to go to heaven next week”. People around generally have a bad reaction, and the kid can end up feeling they have somehow harmed Grandma and hastened her death.
The intuition can also get turned off because it caters and speaks for our uniqueness, and diverse creatures that we are, the intuition (speaking for the heart) can demand some pretty bold action on the way to making our unique dreams come true. We “don’t listen to ourselves” and turn off the inner voice’s demands out of fear of change.
Distrust of the intuition will happens if we’ve absorbed society’s distrust and disapproval of our unique needs and path. The intuition only speaks for what’s right for its owner.
When it’s turned on and we’re listening, it has the ability to guide us to our uniquely fulfilling destination. That’s its primary function. It makes sense, us all being different, that we have a unique navigating system. It leads us to experiences that help us grow in consciousness, and navigates us, through communication in many different languages, to the richest experience of life we can come up with.
Cultures ancient and modern have wise sayings about “follow your heart”. People everywhere recognize the inner guidance system is superior to any for making important life choices. Movies teach us this lesson plot after plot, as our stars make the heartfelt, tough choices.
Sometimes our own lives get just as dramatic around what the intuition has to say. Your family and friends are in horror that you’re moving to Africa? But night after night you dream of the continent’s invitation…that you’ll grow there. It’s twenty years later, and you’re living your dream in Africa. This is why people are happy to follow their “irrational” intuition.
Uncover your own blocks to the intuition, one by one, and let it take you where you really want to go!
Next time: Imagination and Intuition
This article refers to the last couple of days’ exciting planetary interactions..here’s a psychic hit on how it affects us:
The full moon eclipse and Neptune stationary/retrograde made for a weird day outside in Santa Fe–an unsettling gray sky and dropping temperatures.
This full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius makes the truth come out of a situation, and likely, the revealed truth can change or end that road, so a new one can be taken. The truth shall set you free more than usual now.
Almost at the same time, Neptune goes retrograde, advising caution: “When in doubt, don’t.” Question a business deal? Your future neighborhood? When in doubt, don’t invest in anything.
Resistance: Resistance to change is super-tenacious now. There are famous cases of collective resistance from the past: people getting killed for saying the world was round; we could have our modern equivalents. Both collective and individual resistance to change will be a challenge.
Encouragement to deal with individual resistance to personal change: If a person can listen to their changing truth with acceptance, they’ll receive new plans and a lighter being. (You can try the guided imagery exercise, “Teacher on the Beach” to listen to your own spiritual guidance…mid-June, a new exercise will be up to try as well.)
