Hello. Hello!

Yes I finally did it, I opened the doors to Lifencompass / my home and started a healing share. I began by calling it a Reiki Share but I feel that there are just too many great healing modalities that work well together to limit it to Reiki alone. Besides the work “reiki” is just to limiting lately. There is so much more to it than the “#hashtag” “#Reiki” has become. Today, with a few healers I have worked with over the years, we draw together a start, a circle of healing in Downtown LA. And in the case of anyone thinking, Um why didn’t you call me? I started with students and healers I have established a working relationship with, and those that arrived become what I hope is the seed.

I’m excited!

The energy of the house, that sits within a little healing grid, has changed already and a lot has come in and through in preparation. I am REALLY happy with this. My life, my changes, and my path feel… on point.

So, in the future I’m looking at expanding the circle and opening up the healing practice again, and, and, and, moving forward in this new direction. It’s time. I’m glad you have walked along with me. Anticipate new things, maybe like once a month. Expect invitations.

For updates you can add me as a friend on Facebook:

and Please give me a *like* at The Journey / Lifencompass @ Facebook as well!



Be well,

Mercury goes into retrograde on Saturday. I’ve been talking to B about this, and spreading out some advice about transactions and communication -part of which I should have kept in mind today myself- *grumbles* because he wants to invest in some new wheels.

Naturally he asked, should I buy the car when Mercury goes Retrograde? Personally, I probably wouldn’t but that doesn’t mean I absolutely would not. Who runs my life, me or Mercury?

Conversation ensued, I had to leave to hit a dinner date / consultation, and I returned to find this article in my facebook inbox.

I love when I get these things. I really do.

The article is cheeky, fun, and yes insightful. B’s probably buying a new car, one like we’ve rented before (and loved), and we’re going to do it on a “new rules retrograde”.

Excerpt: When Mercury Goes Retrograde

What can we do when Mercury goes retrograde? It’s a fair bet it will continue to go retrograde, a few times a year, every year, until the Sun explodes and none of us have to worry about it any longer. So it’s something we can count on — and it’s something we can predict and put on the calendar. In that respect it’s a lot easier to deal with than problems that occur without any warning! Other than hang up signs saying “Talk to me when Mercury’s feeling better,” there are several things you can do to cope with a planet in retrograde. But you can do more than just cope! This is something that will continue to happen over and over, so why not find ways to make it a more positive event?

When I was a kid, we would sometimes declare “Opposite Day.” Whatever we said, the opposite was true. We’d spend all day confounding our elders by doing the opposite of what we were told to do, and tormenting our younger siblings and cousins by reversing Opposite Day halfway through their uttering a particularly disagreeable sentence. (I know it wasn’t just me who did that!) Mercury going into retro doesn’t mean “There will be problems.” It means “What normally is, is not and what normally isn’t, is.” It means that Mercury has declared Opposite Day for the next three weeks.

While I don’t suggest you go around telling your family and friends that you dislike them, I do suggest you try doing things you don’t normally do. Have you been putting off writing someone a letter? Mercury retrograde can be a great time to sit down and communicate with someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time. Have you been busy playing phone tag with someone at work? Stop calling! Maybe it would be better to visit in person. If you and your spouse always seem to fight and argue when Mercury is in retrograde, why not agree to spend time alone, take a weekend off and go on separate vacations or just agree to ignore one another for an evening? You could even declare a “no verbal communication” day and use written notes and hand signals.

Take this chance to be creative. Think about what problems Mercury in retrograde usually causes

Really? I mean to say, are LA school system lunch lines really that healthy that we don’t need to help make sure that your children have healthy food?

Any teachers out there? What does your school serve in LA County? What do you think? Could a big name with a fantastic idea help change your school?

Greetings travelers. I’m excited to say that we got some rain in Los Angeles. I was beginning to feel like a raison. Seems like a lot of things have been on the wait list as well, last week the issue raised was of potential delays in projects or plans, via the star and some opposing cards.

The week the story progresses.

Tarot Weekly

Strength comes into aspect this week with some strange detail cards. The compass of our journey spins the stars are illuminated from a new perspective, over the ocean and across a new vista we see a maiden and a lion. Near the woman, taming beast, we see two aces, pentacles and cups, both in reverse. These are mirrored by the two of wands (R), and four of cups.

Hind, or the deer, returns to us again. One week in, one week out, and now back. She is our animal guide or living energy that teaches us to handle our urges and the situation with gentleness, grace, beauty.

Getting ahead of myself, let’s see how these cards feel together.


The way forward is to lead with love, it may be tough love, it may be “killing them with kindness” but the way to carry on now is by exerting some control over your re-action to snap, bully, control, or growl and swipe. Bad kitty, no!

Lead the way forward from the heart.

When we bring the energy of anger or aggression up to the heart center we balance and take the animal gut reaction up to the human level.

Ace fo Pentacles (R) is asking us about what it is we are not doing to manifest what we want. Are you dedicated to making your will fruit to reward? This could also augur a loss of what you thought was a sure thing. A job, a financial opportunity, a monetary gain of some sort. Don’t play yourself by banking on outcomes that haven’t come to fruition. Wait for the pay out.

Ace of Cups (R) says, buck up kid, life isn’t all sunshine and lollipops, and you need to accept that the bad is as valid as the good, you sometimes don’t get what you want but, grow up, deal with it. Lying around and crying about your problems and blaming the world for your current situation. You NEED change.

Water is fluid, fluid is liquid, it flows to new places, takes on new forms depending on where it is carried. The current vessel for your fulfillment seems to be inadequate, otherwise you’d be feeling something else. Wouldn’t you?

Something to think about.

If you haven’t taken the time to get centered on your guiding star (last week) and come to understand, FEEL, you next move, the Two of Wands (R) is here to remind you of that important lesson. It’s nice when these little reminders come up, otherwise you may lose the opportunity in the moment.

“The door will come but once, do not hesitate” comes to mind. It’s from one of my favorite series of books ever, The Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan (RIP). Your momentum in relations to your goals, desires, and dreams is based on your focus, enthusiasm, and dedication to manifesting your dreams into reality.

It takes courage, conviction, and even risk. Putting ourselves in new situations that we do not know the temperature of. We are learning. This is life. Are you learning from the right experience or is it, the experience you are in, reminding you to find your passion again? Balance and on point, or goal lost from sight?

Which leads up to the other card (aspect) the Four of Cups. I quote:

“When you encounter the Four of Cups there is a sense that it is time for a re-evaluation of your situation and a need to look deep within your own psyche to find understanding.

You need to re-evaluate things. If you are bored or dissatisfied with the status quo, avoid distractions and examine your heart of hearts to gain clarity. “Crying over spilt milk” or saying, “I told you so” is not attractive.

The Four of Cups means disappointment in someone or in a situation. You may become tired of the same old struggle that has been carried on too long in the past. The end result may include disappointment in the final result.”

~Biddy Tarot

Well, when the message comes the invisible seems to really bang down the meaning for us. 1-2-3-4.

If you are self-absorbed, you tend to refer everything back to yourself – your own interests and desires. On this card, we see a man who is unaware of the cup being offered to him. He misses this gift because he’s turned within. In readings, the Four of Cups can indicate that you are wrapped up for the moment in your own world.

In some situations, you must focus on yourself. When life is too stressful, you need to devote time and energy to yourself or you will feel swamped. The Four of Cups can represent a positive period of self-reflection and renewal. By taking the time to go within to dream, muse and reflect, you restore your emotional balance.”

~Learn Tarot

The Deer is our little helper this week. I think she is saying to handle our self with a little gentleness and love. She becomes the lions keeper, feminine, matching that of the woman in the card. So great is her dedication to love that she can even calm the beast through her otherworldly power.

Subtleness. Have you ever watched deer coming out at dawn or dusk? Quiet. Graceful. They move with a quiet grace, ever vigilant, silent. They come out in the in-between time, dusk and enter the night. The deer return at dawn to the forest, grasses, and hidden places, always mindful of the beasts of the land. Deer can become prey.

The Druid Animal Oracle mentions a special connection the Otherworld and the Faery Folk, indicating that there is magick (new perception and exploration) to be had in these times. She’s been to us now once before.

My experience in the last week has been to see a dream crash (friend) and the later “aaack” because of it. That crash has to be recovered or we let the experience become defeat. Dont’ let the negative crush your dream, as my friend Astrid likes to say, “it can take a thousand rejection letters before your writing gets accepted”. The Star has told us, the dream is real, it can happen. Do not lose hope, do not let these times take you down, and if they do pick yourself back up, collect yourself, and look deeper.

What’s next for you? Anything is possible. Get back in touch with original vision. Take these notes and apply them to your dreams. What do they say for you and your goals in life? Begin there and find your answers.

Things to think about this week: Full Moon Aries, and the Autumn Equinox.

With La Luna Buena, very full in Aries there is an umph! for spontaneous combustion. I found a particularly great little write-up at

When the Moon is full in Aries, the Sun is in the opposite sign of Libra.

Aries is a cardinal sign, making it about instigating, activating and launching the new. Aries is a fire sign, with an emphasis on being animated, high-spirited, enthusiastic and eager to act.

Full Moon in Aries: trusting your instincts; the passion of compassion; vigorous warrior energies; the animation that comes from meeting a challenge head-on; fresh starts; courageous actions; risking confrontation to be authentic; forceful self-expression; the purifying fire of unsentimental truth; taking a stand; being at the edge of new experience; personal charisma.

This Full Moon illuminates: the vital power of the individual — think David and Goliath; your courage to act on the strength of your convictions; your willingness to go it alone, if necessary, to take a stand; the catharsis of being true to yourself; the rewards of going beyond your comfort zone; the thrill of acting on impulse; the exciting heat of friction between strong personalities; your impetuous side.


It’s a Good Time to: celebrate individual freedom and your right to live free; nurture hope in new beginnings; be inspired by the urgency of the times; take action, even if you’re full of fear; act on strong intuitive hunches; face a threat directly; allow buried passions to emerge and find expression; honor the messages that guide your unique destiny; act on true desires, not what you think you “should” do; take a bold step toward what you really, really want; do what makes you feel alive!

Sounds very much like it fits in with the message of The Fool there, right?

The Autumn Equinox has arrived as well. Equal day. Equal night. In the Northern Hemisphere we honor the change of the season amidst a Libran point of balance, noting that we will begin to grow dark and cool. Days will shorten, nights grow longer. Leaving Summer, finding Fall. Turning to colder months… well I’m in LA that would be a blessing. I’d like some rain and storm!

These two events take place this week, in the midst of our weekly. Thursday is the Equinox, Friday is the Full Moon. These are incredibly magickal times to be had, yet I don’t trust the power of the Fool at face value, he’s blocked. The message could  conflict with the Aries push through the lunar cycle and the balancing power of the Autumn Equinox, if the message in whole is not heard.

A Fool, couple of swords, three cups (R), for coins, 9 wands (R), and a wolf.

I know a few folks that have written me about the Tarot Weekly… I can’t say I know everyone that reads these posts but I appreciate your feedback, support, and encouragement. It isn’t always such a lovely reading but it is a reading none-the-less from a source that asks, what is the trending energy?

Let’s take a look…

Tarot Weekly

The Fool, foppish, flops into our spread this week. “It’s time!” He says, “Let’s begin our adventure. Would you rather be there?” pointing at some distant vantage point where everything looks much better than where we are. Where are we? Blocked, grounded, held in place.

Are you allowing yourself to open? It feels like the opportunity for new things, a change of pace, a new scene or relationship to explore but something may be blocking you. What is your feeling telling you? Your intuition? Your gut? How do you feel about the person you are with and those that are around you? Can you trust them? Are you not trusting them for a reason? Are you the reason that you are shutting someone out?

The Fool and the Two of Swords are asking a question, are you blocking yourself from an experience connecting with another? There are swords across your heart. Your eyes have been blinded, are you staring in at a memory, reliving that pain or are you embracing the moment.

She could also say, why are you of two minds about this, is there a reason you hesitate? What is the reason fear or necessity?

Three of Cups (R) -the Threesome Card- is next and this strongly suggest that someone is directly affecting your intimate / love relationship (status?). This could be a couple of things but most likely through gossip or just really shallow behavior.

Suss out your emotional state. FEEL your feelings. Where are they telling you to concentrate? How did you come to have them? Where should you be focused?

This could also be the temptation to indulge in damaging behaviors, excess drinking, drugs, bad habits, or letting in the wrong folks at this time. These are masking habits that people sometimes use to cover their feelings or the truth of about themselves.

Watch the gossip but be mindful that you are making the choices here (The Fool). Now is the time to be conscious of your choices in intimate situations, who you trust with what / or your lack of ability to trust at this time. The crossing of the heart and blindfold can pair with this card and ask us questions about our consciousness in the moment with those we love, and those we trust.

Four of Pentacles says “selfishness” and “egotism”. “I want”, “It’s for ME”, “don’t touch. MINE”. Generally childlike behavior and personally, kind of gross.

What are you trying to preserve? What status are you trying to sustain? Of course the card can say that there could be some material gain coming your way… but with the shape of the cards as they are, I’m feeling that this is about love, intimacy, and trust. Again.

The last of the Tarot this week is the Nine of Wands (R). Now we are asked directly, why are you holding yourself back? The fool says forward yet you guard your heart, you hold onto the present and want things to change, you lose the energy, the thrust of new, by building up your defense.

This is not inspiring. I ask, is this even a strength at this time?

The long and short of it seems to be:

You want to move forward because you feel the need for change, want change, or otherwise are in a growth period but your blocking yourself, defending your emotional nature, and the question to ask is: Why? What does it serve? What does it protect? How are you fulfilling your intuition to be happy / satisfied? Are you focused on the right things, people, and method of operating?

In my own life I see this playing out in three scenarios, personally. Suddenly people I know to be gossips were highlighted. The change I’ve felt in my relationship (positive) was illuminated with a big cosmic highlighter and I want to make a note of that as well. We change as human beings and in a relationship whatever the dynamic, if it is a relationship based on trust, love, and companionship, we grow and change together. Not always at the same time but if we have established that trust then we have support, a sounding board, and a partner in our time of growth. We explore together. I did not have resistance to this, as marked by the cards.

However in the last week two things happened to show where this resistance is playing out within my own life, on another level and it came with two gifts. One was a pair of stones from my friend Nancy Stenn, one piece of Pyrite and Rhodocrosite that grew together quite nicely in the earth and the other was a gorgeously dark piece of Heulandite. These relate to the heart, and I’ll get to that.

Pyrite is a power stone, related to Leo (that’s my sign) and has also been thought to be a healers stone. I’m a healer. 🙂 It can be used to harmonize dualities, left and right, and we approach a time of balance, the Autumn Equinox. The heart is a center for Alchemy, brining together forces and finding harmony between them.

Rhodocrosite is another stone of love and balance. It helps to align the various bodies. Another harmonic stone, pink, related to the heart or peace center. It also has a Leonian connection.

Heulandite in its green form also connects to the heart chakra, and the earth energies. Among other things it helps in times of change.

When I opened the box that contained these stones I instantly felt a cloud lift from my heart.

Later last week I also had some time to get a massage from a wonderful friend by the name of Bryan. He did some work on my back and ribs, I had some blocks and locks that needed to be addressed. At the end of the massge my Hara line lit up like line of fire, igniting each chakra from crown to root, clearing up some of those blocks. Bryan is an amazing body therapist, lots of love, and that second gift again hit on the issues at hand.

But the issues for me were not with my physical relationships but with my spirit relationships. I ask myself, how and why am I defending against greater connection to my spirit allies? Why was I so ungrounded with this newness and how do I begin to ease into greater communication and relating.

This can be the relationship that is in question as well.

Anyway… Thank you for tuning in again. I hope this finds you well.
