What’s your connection to magical consciousness? For me it’s very Third House/Mercury, driving, walking, writing… also, dreaming. Last week I was working on a reading and I couldn’t help thinking I was missing the overarching thread that would pull it all together. Troubled, I silently asked for guidance, got in the car; and a show on NPR gave me the missing link. Often when I’m on the phone with a client, in answer to what’s being said on the other line our neighbors’ pack of wolf dogs start howling – eerily amplified by the canyon. And recently, feeling bereft of focus, I decided to write a mission statement for my astrological practice. Later, I received generous feedback on the reading I did prior, the feedback mirroring my intentional statement almost word for word. I connect synchronous magic to attentive Mercury, but also to Neptune and Pisces, conduits of consciousness.

This weekend, I took a walk down the block to visit a new friend. She served me tea, peppered me with questions about myself and soon enough out tumbled my reindition of “How I Met My Husband”, which quickly led to other topics like: manifestation, healing from past relationships, spirituality and more. A half hour into the conversation, she sat back and looked at me for a moment, genuflecting, ’I don’t meet many people like you –you’re different. You know who you are. Your self-trust and self-knowing guides all your decisions and choices. I don’t have that sense of myself, and many other people I know don’t, either. We all want it - this makes you unique.’ The unexpected praise went straight to my heart and along with shyness & a few other emotions, I mostly felt truth. Sometimes friends can see us better than we can see our self… Basking in the afterglow, I thought of Leo & the Star.
