Happy Birthday, Pisces! And Messages for All During Sun in Pisces
Dear Friends, I hope you’re managing the ups and downs and purgatory-like limbo of these uncertain pandemic times. Here in Santa Fe, I got a glimmer of hope and a glimpse of normality on gallery-lined Canyon Road. I saw tourists milling about, and a line of cars cruising slowly up the street, for the first time in almost a year. Those unexpected signs of life were so welcome!
The February Mercury retrograde cycle is finally over, but before it ended, my computer got blown away by some bad software, and I did something bad to my newsletter subscribers list. If you didn’t ever get a January prediction newsletter and you signed up, that’s why! I wrote quite a bit, though, and you’ll find the newsletter updates and more on my blog and website.
It’s still a moody month, ending with the cathartic full moon on the 27th, and then comes kinder times. People will be more empathetic, projects and plans can move forward faster, and we’ll have more diversions. In the meantime, take care of each other and be good to yourself! Love, Elissa

Housekeeping: After a period of a number of weeks in 2020 when recordings kept on failing, I stopped offering them and suggested people record on their phone. However it wasn’t a good solution for everyone, so now I’m offering them free by request, I just can’t guarantee them.
Classes on LearnItLive.com: I’ve been thinking a lot about channeling lately and how to stay open to spiritual guidance under pressure, and when times are tough. I’ll discuss some new understandings and how to practice communing with the spiritual world in a half hour LearnItLive class, “Channeling Do’s and Don’ts” on February 25th 6 – 6:30 pm Mountain Time. Questions welcome!
Classes on LearnItLive.com: “Moving Forward with the Stars” There’s an easing up at the end of February after some trying and provocative astrological weather. We’ll discuss the current trends, “what’s in the air” clairvoyantly for the class. how your intuition is designed to guide you through change, and what deepens your trust in it. Questions welcome!
Messages from the Stars The last week of February begins two months of sunnier astrological skies with no retrograde planets. Although it’s hard experiences that have been teaching us, it should be easier to move forward on all fronts. There is creative, innovative energy to summon. Don’t look back!
February 2021 pictograph up top– New Orders This was made around Groundhog Day, February 2nd. It symbolizes innovations in food production, medicines that create fast results, new solutions for the eyes and liver, and innovations in general that increase production efficiency. Also, that there are a lot of toxins in the air. Not only are material objects releasing toxins, but people have a lot of heavy energy they’re releasing– it’s kind of a putrid atmosphere. Let emotions come and go, it’s a purifying month, and it leads to “better ways”.
The next pictograph is a combo psychic birthday card for Pisces, and a message for all signs about how to get important things done while the Sun is in Pisces, February 19th -March 20th
Happy Birthday, Pisces! Here’s to an active and productive year! Champion your goals, and magic will follow! Re the little sayings on the card, it sounds paradoxical to “move your muscles” and also, “conserve your energy”, but empathetic Pisceans easily gives their energy to others, and feel others deeply. To accomplish their goals, they’ll need self-discipline and to remember that “straight is the gate, and narrow the way.”
February Psychic Messages, and Mercury Goes Direct Horoscopes
Read your Sun, Moon and Rising signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire Signs: You have to do some things that are hard for you. They are empowering and worth it, but are still hard. You might need more help than you are getting yourself. Sometimes things are hard – just get them done.
Mercury goes Direct for the Fire signs: It time to come down to earth, take a good look at your finances and material-world circumstances, and get ready to embraces new sources of benefits and income. There should be signs of having turned a corner through the communications you get, that now a wanted change is in sight. You might be switching directions to a more profitable track.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water Signs: This new moon energy gives you a “go-ahead” about a role that’s easy for you to play. Things fall into place. There’s somebody coming, or there’s some kind of activity around marriage, relationships, and saying “yes”.
Mercury goes Direct for the Water signs: You have been deep in your feelings, but what has felt heavy is likely leaving your life. You’ve accomplished the all important goal of acting on the ideas that come from your better self. Something that you have been trying to get together and proceed with has a better order and chance for success – go for what you want!
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air Signs: It looks like you’re trying to go somewhere, to a new community and perhaps new relationships, but things are really quite delayed or stymied. To be able to act on all you want to embody, and to connect with the places and people in your life, looks not easy to do right now. Tomorrow is another day! The wind will shift…
Mercury goes Direct for the Air signs, In order to begin again and with what you now know you have, expect to still feel like you’re releasing the past and letting go of a lot – some pressure builds up as the moon gets full at the end of the month. After a cathartic month of changes, you’re more forward-thinking, like an artist contemplating an empty canvas, and ready to be inspired by the changing truth.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth Signs: It’s not a good time to expect a lot of progress, or that you can move quickly. But you could be late for something. Make sure you get things in on time. There can be big consequences for not doing that. Earth signs should do stuff and not be too picky – just get it done with dispatch.
Mercury goes Direct for the Earth signs: This isn’t a time where you necessarily find what you’re looking for, but it’s good to keep on looking. Think of it as the universe having a hard time delivering right now, but soon enough your options with open up and you’ll be connecting again with opportunities and people, and where the ground is more fertile.
Covid19 update: I got the impression there’s a lot more deaths still to come. It’s no time to let your guard down, no matter what the numbers say.
Psychic Pictograph Explication (first posted December 21st 2020, the Winter Solstice)
Explication: “The Sun Shines Narrowly” – the thin yellow rays – means that there are a few winners and a lot of losers in 2021. People aren’t supported. I got the impression that something happens in May 2021 that knocks people for a loop, that has them staggering, which shows up in June, and that by Fall, a lot of competition is knocked out of the marketplace. “Fires Burn Merrily” means people are busy putting out fires in their own life, taking care of business, and largely occupied with their personal/professional worlds.
The horizontal broken brown line means there is some sort of gap, a couple of months of instability, possibly related to the president’s health, and in general all the lines mean that a lot of disadvantaged people fall through the cracks and there is a generally unstable feel to the year.
The red star is a sign that Russia impacts the U.S. significantly this year, and is a big influence generally. When I did the pictograph in December, it didn’t make sense, but I notice that even in July 2020, there was some kind of psychically-felt invasion of U.S. infrastructure coming in December:
From August 2020 newsletter “December 2020 Invasion: An odd impression was that hostile-to-America people infiltrate the United States, coming from many different places. They are a back-up, an aid, a support, as if sent by powerful politicians who want the current administration to stay in power.”
The red star could be pointing out that the recent Russian hack is a very big deal. It invaded many companies, government sites, Microsoft, etc., and no one knows what that hack and infiltration will mean.
There might be many wonderful developments and personal and collective successes in 2021, but the pictograph is picking up on the collective loss of stability and security, at least in America. And, that Russia puts its stamp somehow on at least this country.
I hope you’re looking forward to this new year, and tomorrow’s inauguration – may it truly be a new day on planet Earth. Let Heaven and Nature sing!
I’m not going anywhere any time soon, but I’m sure dreaming of it! The vaccine rollout is slow here in Santa Fe, and my office is still closed. I just read the International Folk Art Market is scheduled to happen this July, though, an in-person event. Here’s hoping… if people are vaccinated by then, and have any money to spend after all this, Santa Fe will be swarming with happy people!
I can’t wait for us to emerge from the winter of our lives, Best to you all, love,

More Predictions for 2021 – People Establish Themselves Anew
Tip: Focus on Short Term Goals and Take Life “One Day at a Time”
In the case of this year, it’s a good idea to skip to the end of the story, which is that things lighten up, they get better, and in the meantime, we have to be resilient and enduring, and resolve to see ourselves through to better days.
Material stability and staying healthy are the primary concerns this not so festive year. You might be waiting until the last few months of 2021 to experience a lighter atmosphere.
Regardless of the picture any of these messages paint of 2021 on a collective level, here is the feisty two cents from the spirit of the year, talking to individuals with dreams:
(December 21, 2020 Tweet): “2021 says: “Blast Off!”Some people are filled with ambition, struck with a mission. Go for it! This is when it occurs to you, and this is when to do it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Ignore the “buts”.
“Love” was the most powerful energy in 2021, and feeling love, and having love, the best tonic for your health. Connection with others is super important this year. However, it was also useful to lower expectations of others, thereby preventing stewing in resentment:
(December 27, 2020 Tweet): “Nothing is more important for the well-being of the planet than your individual kindnesses. Or for the best year and bang, prioritizing your own self’s physical and emotional health. And be doing – no stewing! Don’t expect anything from anybody. Be Well!”
It is not a sentimental year, though, it’s a year that respects being resourceful and doing. Being scattered and inefficient and missing in action, you will lose in 2021. The stars urge and help you to devise better ways of working and to create new efficiencies. You’ll need to learn to better cooperate with others, as well as your own self so you can navigate between what you want to see happen, and tolerance for what is actually possible, given conditions. Focus on short term goals, and note your accomplishments each day.
On the Winter Solstice 2020, I had psychic pictures so dark and unsettling that I only posted the 2021 pictograph (with no explanation), and none of the other messages.
But I also got comforting words on the Solstice that we get over a period of loss and separation, although it was from a spirit way in the future: “Behold! A new day comes. All is well. Everything is over, the anger is dissipated.”
Interestingly, the spirit from the far future said if there’s one thing to stop doing, it’s using plastics: “…and, those plastics emitted gases that were not good for any living thing — eliminate the plastics.” The other practical advice given from the future was “always try to find ways to travel together.”
12/21/20 The Speaking Stones: “In the U.S., a rooted, plotted, creative act is in place. The unusual is here. There’s room for error. Women are left out; spirit is left out –and it’s unclear how things end up.”
I believe this message is capturing the January 6th attack on the Capitol. “Rooted” means the roots of it are in the institution of the U.S. itself, plotted means premeditated, and creative means some big unique thing is trying to come about. Such a big statement about “The unusual” is because it’s historic and novel. “There’s room for error”: I did not understand this – in hindsight it’s that the creative act that’s set to go on and in the air on 12/21/20, reveals how unprotected the Capitol is, how there’s no chain of command protecting it. “Women are left out” – the stone representing women was not in the design – only Mars energy, masculine and with the mechanical in place. “Spirit is left out” is that it’s an unenlightened act, unholy, like the burning of the Alexandria library; and finally, “unclear” points out the consequences to the country can’t be seen. (That’s all I divined. In a moment of weakness and unprofessionalism, I was so taken aback by this menacing, powerful design that I impulsively destroyed it before reading everything it had to say.)
To not convict Trump is to invite Chaos in, and evict the Rule of Law. Even if his mob turns on him and then keeps growing by itself, funded by Russians or whatever’s going on, democracy has a better chance of survival even everywhere in the world, by having a trial in the Senate, and convicting him.
Automatic Handwriting: Messages About 2021 on the Winter Solstice
Question: (I ask the spirits for messages that paint a realistic picture of the year):
Answer:“You drew it.” (That refers to the 2021 psychic pictograph “The Sun Shines Narrowly, Fires Burn Merrily” – see update below.)
A: It goes away.
A: He doesn’t.
Q: Where is he?
A: In the White House.
Q: Does he win?
Q: Who is speaking? (I asked this because the last answers didn’t make sense; Trump can’t be in the White House if Biden won, and I wanted to “try the spirits”, meaning I want to identify who is giving me these incomprehensible answers.)
A: I am. Always yours…anything else? (This meant to me I was talking to a trustworthy spiritual guide. Now on January 15th, maybe him still being in the White House is a metaphor for the possibility that Trump becomes president of a shadow government, and he can win in that he divides the U.S. and is still the leader to his base. Maybe it means he wins because he can still go to war with America, and further divide it.)
A: Where women are, is where women were. (This means that womens’ fate continues to cycle between highs and lows, and there is not a notable change in their lot.)
Q: Black people?
A: All done. Over. Annoyed. Angry. (I don’t understand “All done. Over”. It sounds like something frustrating happens, maybe a loss in power of their social/political movements.)
A: Always… it’s always going to win.
Q: U.S. economy?
A: No. (This means the spirit will not answer this particular question – “No” is not a statement about the economy.)
Note: In the Late May 2020 newsletter with predictions about Covid19 in 2020 and 2022, the idea that the pandemic is “over” was in the original 2022 message. However, what hogged all the attention in that divination was how mad people were in 2022 about the tremendous destruction to the economy and how badly the crisis was handled. This December message also declares that Covid is more or less over with its rampage in 2021, although clearly not any time soon.
Month by Month 2021 Divination: In this experiment in communication, I tried to get messages that were a comment on each month of the year, which I recorded. Unfortunately, the “voice to text” microphone in Microsoft 365 turned itself off, and I learned the hard way I have to check that little red button! It’s a shame because it gave the most messages, and I remember only a few things. The messages are so stark, I’ll certainly know by the end of the year whether this is a good divination system are not:
May-June 2021: An event or circumstance that hits in May, where the effects are felt strongly in June, is some kind of blow that really knocks the wind out of peoples’ sails and is very crippling. People stagger under the weight of something hard to deal with, as is something comes ramming through, and this is felt in the U.S. Consequently, there are a few winners and many losers and many less people in the middle.
September – October: A recovery begins where things are getting righted, it feels like after an attack, but this is when it’s clear that there are only a few winners and many losers. It also reduces competition in the marketplace quite a bit. The price of gold is higher in October.
November: Government and social services have to put different sorts of systems in place that never had to be instituted before, to shore up or support people or keep them safe.
Message from the Space People: The first message about their increasing presence is in a previous blog post, and here’s the second that comments about our human nature, and how we end up connecting with other beings out there. Somehow this message was coming from planet Earth, and space beings. Both were gotten on the 2020 Winter Solstice:
“People have so much to release, to throw up.
You’re more malleable, changeable, than you’re acting. You’re acting like you don’t have the ability to see what isn’t working, and the will to change it.
You’re better than that! Call on your high self as an individual, and after a while, you’ll want to and learn to connect with high selves in a collective way that changes these conditions. Don’t worry about the conditions, worry about yourself.
And yes, we’ve been radioed, we are from different places in the universe. Your individual effort to change your own consciousness and ultimately create a collective consciousness that changes conditions here, will allow you to use a lot more technology… this is how you connect with The Others.”
Update on the 2021 Pictograph: Here is the original message I got; I couldn’t find it when I first wrote about it on my blog:
“It looks like people fall through the cracks. There’s some kind of pause or irregularity in the beginning of the year. Many things are cancelled. People are very preoccupied with the fires they have to put out in their own homes and communities. They focus now on their own lives.”
The original explication about Russia impacting the U.S. still seems relevant, but now I think it also refers to the year-defining insurrection at the Capitol, because the symbol on maps for state and country capitals is a star, and Washington DC. on my map is marked by a red star.
U.S.A.: A lot of people are left by the wayside in 2021, and the country is still divided. There is still a lot more deaths this year, and many people get very withdrawn, psychologically. We are asked to wade through it all and carry on. It is both a great year when a lot of helpful scientific innovations give us hope, and a sad year. Interestingly, people might also feel they have unusual good luck, but it’s because people consider changing their behavior for real, and they make a greater effort to meet their short term goals. Many do, to great effect!
Everything starts easing up in the Fall, but that’s also when what has failed or been lost is clearer.
Why we are experiencing so much loss in general in the world, according to Mother Earth, is that things got out of balance.
For Individuals: What is so important that helps each person, is to take care of yourself, and maintain your personal health and emotional well-being by trying to live a balanced life. Things move fast this year, if you’re acting out of balance, the consequences can sideline you.
And for an ending to soothe you, here is a story from the January 14th “Get It Done in ’21” class, a parable about the year:
Once Upon a Time in 2021
Once upon a time in 2021 there was a young man who got into a huge conflict with his in-laws.
There was nowhere to go; there was nowhere to turn to because now, his in laws were living right under his roof,
and his wife wasn’t sure who she was, and not always acting like his wife…
What to do? What could he do? Because now, they had to lean on each other for support. Now, they had to make money together.
And they’re still arguing about who is gonna do the dishes, and so to handle this, to get past this and to create a passage in his life from these worrying thoughts,
he decided to take a little trip up to the mountains. It was peaceful up there chilly, cooler, brisk -but the higher elevation cleared his head and suddenly his heart began to speak,
and it said,
“Sometimes you need different experiences; new experiences; unplanned ones – to grow to your deeper potential. They come as surprises… welcome and unwelcome… and take you off what you think is your path – but no, it’s your path to grow your heart now, to be able to see past people struggling, and decide how you want to be, and this will make you strong, you will sleep well, no matter what’s going on.. that’s your passage and how you get through… your heart on fire about your life, not strife. Decide how you want to be, and that will set you free.” The young man inhaled the mountain air so sweet with pine needles, and decided all was well, and made his way back home, resolving to come back to the mountains more often, and take it one day at a time.”
Important cosmic doings are happening tonight! It’s the coincidence of the Winter Solstice, which brings omens of the New Year, and the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in the air sign of Aquarius, which brings omens of trends for the next 200 years. My December 2020 newsletter describes the major changing trend in the explication of the pictograph:
The December 2020 Psychic Pictograph is about the 200 year cycle of Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions in Air signs: The reason “Love” is in the air, is because the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on December 21st will be in Air signs for the next 200 years, and they have been conjunct in Earth signs for the past 200. Saturn and Jupiter in Air means that now, what creates structure and the world we live in are ideas, principles, collaborations, innovations, and agreements, as well as ideological conflicts and arguments that are much more likely to lead to compromise. That is a big shift from Earth with the focus on the material world, making money, and ultimately, not respecting the earth.
Although I did go out today and get omens for the year, and the 2021 element horoscopes, that will be in the January newsletter. Here’s more about the impact of the much-heralded Jupiter and Saturn conjunction, plus psychic horoscopes about what to expect personally. Finally, I got a couple of interesting messages from Outer Space Beings! There’s one below, and the second will also be in the January newsletter.
Effects of Jupiter and Saturn Together
Jupiter is idealistic, and Saturn is realistic, and their coming together means that people get realistic and real about their goals and ideals. They’re willing to commit. They work to create the ideal version of themselves. They’re willing to work to make the society they want.
The alignment of our will and discipline (Saturn) with what inspires (Jupiter) is a powerful motivating force for manifesting our dreams in 2021.
Jupiter wants to expand, while Saturn wants to contract, keep the status quo, and conserve. Conjunct, it suggests people with conflicting agendas are forced to work it out for the sake of productivity and stability. Air signs especially get into ideological conflicts.
Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is a glowing omen of success through science and innovative new concepts, systems, and structures, and that our use of technology becomes profoundly impacting on a global level.
Message from the Space People about an eventual meeting between beings from other planets and us: “It’s a matter of percentage… the consciousness is rising on the Earth. It’s about 36 % of people now who would be ready for an interaction and understanding of the larger systems and intelligent beings, and there will be more visitation, more evidence, more circumstances that bring the planet closer to that introduction.”
(After this message, I had the thought that 72% of “ready people” was a threshold, a tipping point, and was 15 years away. There’s one more message from the Space People, and it will be in the January 2021 newsletter.)
Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction for the Fire, Water, Air, and Earth signs Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs
Theme: Committing to Yourself, Committing to your Dreams
For all signs: 2021 says: “Blast off! Some people are filled with ambition, struck with a mission. Go for it! This is when it occurs to you, and this is when to do it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Ignore the “buts”.”
Jupiter/Saturn conjunction and Winter 2020 forAries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire Signs: You’re unusually clear headed this winter. Whatever is in your heart to do, and what’s within your capability, and what comes forward to support you, are all things that line up very well! It’s time to do!
Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction for Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water Signs: You have a better idea now of what makes you happy; you have chances to do things that make you happy; you know who makes you happy. You have some great ideas! Things are much more likely to work now. You see what has not worked… it’s a very hopeful winter full of good ideas, things you’re suited for. A lot of pleasure ahead for you! If there’s something you want to do, you’ve got a chance to do it. It’s an emotionally harmonious time ahead, potentially.
Jupiter/Saturn conjunction forGemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air Signs: You get into clashes about what’s right. Things have to change. You’re dealing with more conflict than the other astrological signs. There are conflicts between how things have been done, and what present circumstances call for, making you idealistically at odds. You have to find something new that makes you happy. This takes some time to develop so don’t worry if at first you don’t know what to do.
Jupiter/Saturn conjunctionforTaurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth Signs: You are now free to pursue more supportive partnerships and relationships, and are finding ways to do what you want. It looks like this involves a lot of change, and willingness to be a pioneer.
Theme of this period, October 9th-November 3rd: “Functioning well”. Finding common ground, and making things function better is what we’re prompted to do by our Better Selves.
What to Expect: tremendous fighting! Crazy big fighting with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio within minutes of Sun in Libra opposite Mars retrograde in Aries…people dig their heels in, they have particular trouble letting go and moving on. The planets point to a difficult time for divided people to come to agreements. A couple of days later, the Sun in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. People square off who are on “sides”. And today, Mars retrograde in Aries is squared Pluto: people are quick to rail against the machine, or anything, really.
Today February 9th, Mars retrograde squares Pluto: The Past wants to pipe up, and it’s got a bone to pick. The airing of grievances can get out of hand right now. Whatever your grievance, just fageddaboutit for your own sake. Chaos and conflict are in the air at historic levels, ready to connect with your egoic self and steal your time and energy. Dodge it by letting go and laying low. Funnel that very same super strong and determined energy swirling around into what you’re trying to effect in your life.
Blessings from the Stars: For any system or person trying to organize activities, it’s an excellent time to create new efficiencies and new order to meet any changing conditions. For everyone, personal plans and how to get something done becomes much easier with new information, new tools, and new skills that begin to develop in this Mercury retrograde period.
October 13th Warning: An aspect that is generally energizing, Sun opposite Mars, can create breakthroughs in how to be successful with partnerships this week, but it can also, if people are arrogant and self-centered, feed the flames of indignant egos everywhere. To stay on the sunny side of the street, be a student, learn from everything and everyone – and from your own mistakes, which you must forgive immediately to keep going and stay strong.
Luck! Believe it or not, this can be a lucky time – luck now is truly a matter of being ready when opportunity strikes. “Being ready” as opportunity sweeps through your landscape, scooping up whomever is ready and likely transforming them, can create striking change in individuals’ lives. Opportunities are manifesting just like a lot of other things, if you are ready to seize them and go with it.
People with New Ideas should develop them in the dark, as others can oppose them at this time.
People with Plans: This Mercury retrograde, it’s likely that plans have to be revised, so if you’re not sure of your plans, don’t put your money down until you’re sure it’s happening.
Mercury Retrograde and You, October 13th– November 3 rd 2020
Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire Signs: This is a time you might react to what you encounter, but it would be good if you don’t show it. Being neutral is a useful skill. Being aware and awake and ready to help will be noticed. However, it is still somewhat of an alone time, a respite, when you tidy up and make new rules for yourself. New realizations about where your life is going are likely.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water Signs: Water signs make a vicious attack on all their undone tasks and what needs to be cleaned up. You might be surrounded by more bickering and fighting than usual. A mysterious day is coming up although of course its effect may not be right on the day. October 27th, the moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, and then goes on to favorably aspect Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. This can go different ways: it can be a dreamy special day, and then when Mercury and Venus enter Libra in the evening, you enter a period where there’s more balance in your life, and time for your own pursuits. But if at this time you are not honest and on the up and up, and are trying to deceive someone, your actions could trigger a long, drawn-out tale of woe.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air Signs: Your ideas will be tested and put to the test. A great deal can be accomplished toward your goals in the coming new moon in Libra cycle that begins October 16th. Anything that doesn’t work will be glaringly obvious. Forget your mistakes, and put your best foot forward!
Taurus,Virgo, Capricorn, Earth Signs:Earth signs are going to have fantastic new ideas. Write them down! “We are willing to help you,” say the spirits, “if you are willing to listen. To be obedient to one important goal and dream – to calm down, and stop pushing, as you make way for more joy. It’s coming… you’ll be deliriously happy by next Spring that something is over, and something new has begun.”
