Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Tow of Pentacles: permutation. Personal growth can not be achieved if you are stuck in old patterns of reacting and unproductive behavior. To get out of this mire, you need the support of partners and friends. Only they can help you work toward a successful conclusion in business and creativity as you are spinning your wheels today. You must organize whatever your enterprise is very carefully if you are to succeed.

Astrologically, the New Moon is at 5Scorpio54 at 7:14 PM EDT. Beware! There is an aspect for the next couple of days that makes us prone to emotional outbursts and opening your mouth with thinking first! The Moon enter Scorpio at 7:47 AM EDT and though Scorpio can be very spiritual, the things coming out of your mouth are more likely to be off color and get you in deep trouble with the opposite sex. This new moon is conjuncting the sun, as it always does when it new, in Scorpio, the sign of secrets, undercover work, obsessions, compulsions and lastly: sex. Yes, spells to discover secrets work at this time and using a found cat’s whisker is a favorite. Spell to enhance your sexual attractiveness are also easily worked but remember, the Moon and the Sun will head into Sagittarius, the cosmic judge and jury and that’s when you get your reward or come-up-pens for tonight‘s work! Choose carefully. The aspects favor transformation to one’s highest self not the lowest one! FOCUS!
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say there are blocks to inner power. Take those blocks out and examine them in light of what you are trying to accomplish with this next 30 days. Some times the blocks are there for a reason and with these Lunar aspects, they are! You need to address the real problem, not the symptoms.
Today’s Cat Comfort card is The Cat That Got the Cream. “Spoil yourself. You deserve it.”
Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Rarr! Who else would be out on this day? The Rarr is uncontrolled energy. He is great to have around when you need that last little push to finish something but when there is energy abounding, he is like pouring kerosene on a fire! I think he is possessing the Bitwit! This is why you call upon him with caution. He can get you over the finish line but you will probably collapse shortly there after from exhaustion. Some times I see a group of them in the shop yard at night flitting from plant to plant like being in a huge Pin Ball machine. Next morning I find leaves striped, plants knocked over and branches down. The Rarr can be destructive. He is decidedly Celtic and the elemental most called upon before a battle.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 5 and the element is metal. The Sheep finds conflict but the Ox and Tiger are having a great day!
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The Divine Love of my Higher Self now flows through me in every situation of my life. The more I express this love, the more it returns to me.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.
COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Some times the Message from the Universe hits home. Last night I was thinking somewhat about this very thing. As a Psychic, I get a lot of people walking in for a reading and one of the howls I hear is: “I have no friends!” Usually I get to know them pretty well because they just keep coming back and paying to have someone to complain to until I get fed up and put my foot down. I just don’t believe in taking people’s money unless they really need a reading. I left psychology because there is just so much whining I can take without a bottle of wine, some cheese, soft light and some really good jazz.
Anyway, in all my years of listening to this rant I have reached some really good guidelines as to why a person doesn’t have any friends.
If when a friend is stranded somewhere due to their own stupidity, it’s raining and you feel like warmed over crap, they call you for help, is the first thought through your mind: “What’s in it for me?”
Or on the same situation do you carefully evaluate how much trouble it is going to be, whether something good is on TV and since they did it to themselves, let them get out of it?
Or, do you pull on your sweat pants, trudge out to the car and go get them?
If it is the later, you have friends, because you know how to be a friend. You know people make stupid mistakes. You know you’ve locked your keys in your cars more than once, locked yourself out of the house in rain and forgotten your wallet. You know how scared, weak and really dumb they feel and you are ready to help, not gloat over it.
If you answered any one of the first two, you have acquaintances and you’d better have a good towing service and a cell phone because no one is coming out to help you.
You can’t have friends unless you know how to be one and even if you do happen on one of the rare people who are willing to help you, they are only going to be used for so long because your whole focus is on yourself. I think they proved the Universe doesn’t revolve around earth and it sure doesn’t revolve around you. You’re going to have a really lonely old age. One thing you learn when you work in social work or psychology and have to visit nursing homes is when someone is sitting there with no visitors, there is usually a really good reason why no matter how sweet they seem now. The odds are they will never figure it out.
Because I interact with a lot of groups, run groups and do events, I am always hearing from someone who has been excluded and they have SOMEONE to blame. Let me let everyone in on a little secret, no one person gets you thrown out of groups or events or not asked back except for yourself. People running events look for several things in the people they involve with themselves. On the top of the list is dependability and cooperation. If you have a list of complaints by the end of every event, don’t expect an invitation to the next one. There is a big difference between constructive verse destructive criticism and you need to learn it. If you have decided the rules don’t apply to you, don’t expect an invitation to the next event. If you arrive late, leave early or just don’t bother to arrive at all, don’t expect an invitation. There are at least 15 people in line behind you for that one spot now-a-days and they are willing to do anything to get it, including - oh shock upon shock - following the rules. Prima Donnas need not apply for anything in this economy. This applies to everything, not just the psychic. I remember when the cooking pots and pans dealers were banned from trade shows because their franchise contracts demanded they use a microphone when doing their four times a day demos. No one could hear themselves think! It had nothing to do with the product or the person. It was the noise! If your approach to getting clients into your booth at a metaphysical event is more akin to the red light district on a slow night, you are not going to be asked back. People do not attend these events expecting a hard sell. They expect something more spiritual. They will complain to the management. It is the customers, not the other vendors who will get you bounced out of events. Trust me, the management listens to customers over vendors any day and four times on Sunday! So you can stop the Magickal Wars. It’s not the Witch next door. It’s the one you see in the mirror.
I, on the other hand, am looking for Kitten Day Care. Isis is deflated from hissing. Ra is hiding and my toes look like they have been through a war zone. The Bitwit is finally worn out and taking a nap or she is destroying the bathroom. Right now, as long as my toes are safe I don’t care. I put her on my lap to do the forecast and the first thing she did was climb on my shoulder, over the top of the chair and smack onto the cash register where she did the four way kitten stretch and claimed it. Then she headed for the Anna Riva Oils which are luckily locked up in a glass cabinet because I do not want to chase those bottles all over the place! At least she has good taste in metaphysical supplies. Then she settled for a white quill pen and that’s when she took a forced nap. This is why I, Ra and Isis never had children. You can’t cage them. Ra just volunteered to be spayed twice and Isis says she is just too old for this. Meanwhile, the boys are upstairs thinking they are secure in the fact that Bitwit can’t climb the spiral staircase. Oh those poor deluded little black balls of fur! She can. She just hasn’t discovered it yet.
