Cleanse and Clear with the Waning Moon

Cleanse and clear, the moon whispers to let go of your pain and fears. The time has come to go within, reflect and learn from where you’ve been. The sky is growing darker each passing night, inviting you to tend to your own inner light. Trust in the Divine and set yourself free, so mote it be…so mote it be.

This weekend brings with it a wonderful opportunity to clean, clear and release anything you don’t want to bring into the new year and new decade with you.

On Saturday, December 21 at 8:16 PST (in the Northern Hemisphere), we celebrate the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, under a waning crescent moon in Libra. You may desire peace and harmony at the expense of being your authentic self; don’t bite your tongue at the expense of sharing your true feelings.

The moon travels into the deep, emotional waters of Scorpio on December 22nd and 23rd and though you might have some depth fatigue from our too long trip through Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio last month, it’s a really good time to dive into your feelings. What doesn’t work will become painfully obvious and you may be moved to make some (overdue) changes.  Shallow relationships will no longer be satisfying and you’ll resolve to go deeper in connection or make an exit.

It’s a wonderful energy to maximize if you have been seeking more meaningful connections and work within your community.  It will also make streamlining your wardrobe, home and life seem like a moral imperative.   Release, recycle, revolutionize.

As the moon heads right into Sagittarius on the 24th, it brings with it the desire to seek out a quest, a mission or deeper meaning for our lives.  Now that we’ve identified what needs to go, we can fill the void with what feels purpose driven, hopeful and optimistic.  Excellent energy if you have to go find some last minute gifts, but be mindful, or you could find yourself in some trouble.  The good news is that, if you do overspend or get into a fender bender, it will all work out.  Just take a moment to feel the feet in your shoes before zooming off into the hustle and bustle.

Boxing Day, the 26th brings us the New Moon (which actually starts late on the 25th) in Capricorn and a Solar Eclipse.  Not only do solar eclipses bring exciting breakthroughs and beginnings, they open doors to us that were previously locked.  Expect good news, and to be put on the right path, if you’re not already. This energy is more effective for allowing rather than trying to manifest or force things to happen. Stay open to possibilities – you may be pleasantly surprised.

This new moon takes place in Capricorn, just a couple days after Capricorn’s sun season begins. It bookends the Capricorn new moon that happened in January 2019, and as a Libra, I love the symmetry of this. We will all be feeling the Capricorn-heavy energy of hard work, ambition, and desire to create stable plans. Capricorn energy is one that will be with us significantly throughout 2020 because Jupiter, the planet of fortune moved in on December 18th. You’ll be seeking tangible results  – look out tee shirt and lingerie drawers, cluttered closets and outdated, unworkable paradigms of all stripe!  It’s overhaul time.

Before you start your new year resolutions, this coming week is the time to rest, release, and make space. Slow down, reflect on all we’ve learned in the last year,  and in this last decade.  Treasure the things you want more of, and let go of the rest.  2020 is your year, dear one.

I wish you a glorious week and a blessed New Year.  If you would like a second set of eyes to get clarity on what to release and what to bring in, I’m here to help.  The deep wisdom of the tarot will illuminate your path and an energy healing session can help to clear the way.

Anything is possible.

I spent Thanksgiving Day with my found family, a group of dear friends who gather together to enjoy each other and delicious food, song and camaraderie. This year, I was asked to bring my tarot deck and give some guidance to my friends for the coming year.

I love the deep wisdom that emerges from the stories that are woven in every tarot spread I lay out;  the patterns are powerfully endowed with exactly the right information to provide clarity to the querent.

I noticed a very interesting pattern in each of the readings I did on Thanksgiving, and while I could chalk it up to the fact that the folks I was reading were both friends and family, and therefore spend a lot of time together, I think the pattern I noticed is actually a reflection of the human zeitgeist, and the fact that we’re entering a new decade.

In every reading I gave, the Death card appeared.  Those of you fond of catharsis, or with  prominent Pluto placements in your natal chart may share my love of the Death card and all the change it brings. (I have a stellium in Scorpio – you do the math!)  While it would be easy to write off the Death card as scary and unwanted, I welcome it’s appearance in readings. The dark, skeletal figure carries a white rose that, to me, is a harbinger of hope; a symbol of a permanent transition to a new state.  It brings the unknown to our door with untold gifts, that we get the opportunity to define and explore.

When nothing is known, anything is possible.  The death card can mean that outside forces initiate great change – internally or externally.  Perhaps you will be moved to shift your thoughts about what’s truly important to you, about your belongings, relationships, and ways of being.  Perhaps it brings the end of a situation that no longer meets your needs or inspires your growth.  The force of death is inevitable, and we benefit by embracing it and riding the change.

It can also be the perfect reminder to BE HERE NOW, staying present to the moment we are living. It’s the true meaning of dying to the past in order to be who we are right now.

As we end this decade amidst the uncertainty of all that’s happening in the world, take heart; change is coming and we get to hold a vision for our next steps in our minds, personally and as a collective.  Will you focus on the chaos, or will you take a moment to ground yourself and set your sights on the highest good?  Anything is possible.

A Happy Client’s Review

“I recently had a session with Crisann and didn’t know what to expect, but she immediately made me feel so comfortable and like I was in a safe space. She’s so warm and kind and listens. She also has an amazing ability to help you see where you are struggling and why. She opened up a part of me that I was struggling with and I immediately felt like something had shifted in me. She also gave me steps to work on the transition I’m in right now, so that I can grow even more. Her words perfectly expressed what I have been feeling.  I felt heard and changed and wonderful after my session. She truly has an amazing gift. Her positivity and acceptance combined with her talent, makes her a powerhouse. I can’t wait for my next session with her and I want to have her “on call” for life’s challenges! She’s absolutely worth every penny and I can’t recommend her enough. Life changing. Thank you thank you thank you, Crisann!!” – TMR

2020 Is Almost Here

How does each of our personal lives contribute to that larger drama? Changes & shifts are happening.
You have the opportunity to participate in your own evolutionary growth and reap some major benefit from the powerful forces at play in all of our lives now.

That’s why I’m here.
I can help shed some light on your path, and help you see where and how to tap into your unique superpower potential. Everyone has some magic to unleash in the world. I’d love to help you release and develop yours.

Perhaps you’re thinking:
But how do I get from Here to There, especially when I’m feeling like This?

A deep intuitive counseling  session can be majorly enlightening.

A good reading will turn the proverbial lights on.

I would love to have a conversation with you that brings a little insight, points you in the direction of some big personal clarity, or even helps with any project you’re working on.

The 11/11 Portal!

The 11/11 portal will be a series of beautiful connections between very powerful planets. The conjunction Sun/Mercury in Scorpio with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn encourages us to see and understand the aspects of fear. The current Sun/Mercury transit is very rare making it powerful energy for all of us.

In addition to these major planetary aspects, the 11/11 happens to be the eve of the Full Moon in Taurus, during the Scorpio season. The retrograde Sun and Mercury will align in Scorpio on 11/11, opposing the Moon to Taurus.

This means that we will have flashes of lucidity, even if this is opposed to our emotional needs. The next day, there will be a fertile Full Moon in Taurus, making November 11 a great day to separate us from what no longer serves us and transform our lives. It will also be a good time to let go and eliminate all obstacles in your path that will lead to success.

In readings, the Four of Wands card is known as the 11/11 card, and often represents the events and experiences that generate excitement. These vary from person to person, but the stirring feelings are the same. Sometimes such times arrive unexpectedly. The Four of Wands can signal a surprise or spontaneous thrill. Other times this card represents planned celebrations, such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and victory parties. These events have their solemn side, but they are also a chance to feel the joy of living.

The Four of Wands often means freedom. Freedom can take many forms, but it always brings with it an exhilarating feeling. When we break the bonds that bind us, whether physical, mental or emotional, we feel triumphant and able to move on to a new period of growth and happiness. If you feel trapped or restricted right now, use the energy of the Four of Wands to launch you into freedom. Do not be afraid to claim the open vistas that are rightfully yours.

October is my favorite month.

October is my favorite month. I love the cooler days and the abundance and feeling of the fullness during the traditional time of harvest. Halloween time (or Samhain) is perfect for tuning into and deepening our spiritual pursuits, because the veil between the mundane and spiritual worlds is the thinnest. If you tune in to the more easily identifiable spiritual vibe right now, you can more easily magnetize what you want to create and manifest in your life.

We collectively create the world we live in, each of us adding to the good in the world or the chaos in the world. Your vibe lights up the world you live in, and you broadcast that energy everywhere you go and to everyone you meet. None of us live in a vacuum. What kind of energy are you putting out there? What would you LOVE to see reflected back in your day-to-day reality?

Today is the perfect time to put that into motion! Your attitude and thoughts can help transform your life from what it is to what you most want it to be. And the energies of this day are primed to help you make it so.

What does your ideal life look like? Write it down – from waking to retiring for the night – what does that day look like? Get clear on the specifics. If you don’t have time to write it down, just take a moment and give it a think. Visualize the environment, the feelings, the food, the people, and the places that make up the life you most dearly want to live. Then CALL IT IN:

Affirm: “ I give thanks for my permanent happiness, my permanent health, wealth and love. I am harmonious, happy and divinely magnetic, and I now draw my unending good to me. All things I seek are seeking me. And so it is.”

or

“Divine love expressing through me now draws to me all that is needed to make me happy and my life complete.”

Feel free to use different affirmations, these are just a few that I enjoy.

Remember to keep open to the intuitive information that presents itself. It will help you take the action and take advantage of the opportunities you draw in. Manifesting requires action, and not just magical thinking. What we radiate we attract, but the mental preparation comes first so we can connect the seen and the unseen and then take the external steps to make it real.

There has been so much chaos and unrest in the world, especially here in the states. (And currently in the state of California). We have the ability to add to the darkness or add to the goodness that’s happening. What do you envision for the world at large? See it, vision it, speak it. Hold your vision steady and loving and keep sending your beacon of light out into the world. We need it.

Affirm: “I give thanks for unity and great calm in the United States and the World. I clearly see peace established on land and sea. And so it is” Again, feel free to use whatever affirmation feels right for you.

We are here to live our best lives in these Earthly meat suits we walk around in, not just survive. The truth is we can manifest anything at any time, just by our thoughts becoming things.

Personally, I think we’ve all had enough of the horror show that’s real life and I’d like to get us focused on the good stuff again – focus ONLY on what you want today. No matter what it is, a turn in the political tides, peace, abundant health, wealth and happiness. Keep those in the forefront of your mind and open up to the pure possibility of life and love during this magical time of year.

No. Nah. Nope. Nyet.

Own your no. No is a complete sentence.

Shakespeare once wrote:

“To thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

What he means is: Take care of yourself first, and that way you’ll be in a position to take care of others.


Mary Morrissey said: Know that it’s not only okay to say no, it can be essential to say no.

It may feel very uncomfortable to say no, but eventually, you’ll begin to realize how good it feels to be authentic, and how much more love and energy you can express when you’re not only good to others, but when you’re good to yourself, too.

Not to mention that you can still be kind when you say no.

You can say, “I would love to do that, but I’ve got other plans that are really important to me, so ask me again another time. Next time, I’d love to help you.”

Let go of the guilt.

To help you more easily let go of any guilt you may feel when you say no to someone’s request, replace it with this thought:

“I wouldn’t want anyone else to say yes to me when they didn’t really want to say yes. I can say yes when I mean yes. I can say no when I mean no. I can love and care about others, AND I can love and care about myself.”

Psychic, Teacher, Healer, Guide.

Greetings friends! I am a psychic, clairvoyant, tarot expert, and energy healer. (I’m also a yoga teacher and respiratory conditioning coach). I’ve been sharing my psychic gifts professionally since 2008, and I’d be delighted to share them with you, too.
 
I’m a Midwestern girl, who’s lived all over the world. I’ve called Bombay, Boulder and Burbank home. I come from a long line of psychics and healers on both sides of my family; and while I have always been drawn to life’s mysteries, it was probably my Mom who sparked my interest in metaphysics as a young girl. I used to sneak her astrology books to bed, to read under the covers with a flashlight for as long as I could keep my sleepy eyes open.
 
All the latent superpowers passed down through DNA ignited when I became a Mom. I had given birth to a daughter and a calling. Fueled by a love of learning and information (Sun and Mercury in the third house) I went on a mission to seek out the teachers who helped me expand and shape my skills as a psychic, teacher, healer and guide.
 
Laura Day has been one of my most influential teachers and her guidance has shaped how I do the work I do today.
 
My tools include remote viewing, intuition, channeling, mediumship and clairvoyance. I have been reading Tarot for 30 years now, and love to offer the deep wisdom that comes through my cards to clients. My team of guides helps me see you clearly during a session. I see your greatest strengths and potentials in addition to your challenges, blocks, and self limiting patterns. My goal during our time together is to provide accurate, actionable information to bring you the comfort and clarity you seek and to give you a roadmap to make a course change, if that’s what you desire. The most rewarding part of this work is when a reading opens up the way for a healing to occur.
 
I’m known for my compassion, sense of humor and honesty. I don’t pull punches, but I do deliver the messages you need to hear with kindness and positivity. My clients include police detectives, actors, playwrights, executives, business people, talent agents, artists and even a think tank! I’d be honored to share this work with you, too.
 
I look forward to connecting with you!

Secret of Life, the Universe and Everything

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive.  You will be dead soon enough.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

Papa Hemingway was channeling the Buddha when he wrote these words about the secret to life.  We must strive to stay present, and not worry about the future or the past but to live in the moment earnestly.

I found that quote at about 4:00 A.M. with the full moon shining through my bedroom window.  I was wide awake and yearning for answers.  The universe, hearing my request, offered up that quote.  When I looked at the Pinterest photo, I noticed it was on page 42.  This struck me as a little cosmic wink and I smiled.  (If you’re not already a fan of Douglas Adams’ “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe”, the number 42 is:  the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything” calculated by a supercomputer named Deep Thought over a period of 7.5M years.)

Being present really is the secret to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything, and somehow, it also seems to be the hardest thing for the majority of us.

I’ve been thinking about this for a few days in earnest, after an amazing astrological chart reading with the incomparable John Joseph; who told me I needed feed my emotional being and be present in the physical, sensual aspects of life, because I tend to exist in the analytical and intuitive realms.

So, I’ve been experimenting with taking John and Papa Hemingway’s advice lately.  This morning, for instance, in my groggy just awakened state, I noticed the beautiful moon offering up her gentle glow in the pre dawn sky.  I paused for a moment to admire her beauty before going to wake my daughter.

I called her in to see it too and we stood together momentarily, taking it in.  Later, on the drive to school, we listened to our favorite classical music station and I encouraged her to take a sip of coffee while she enjoyed her home made, maple breakfast scone.  These tiny things we we could just as easily disconnect from, can also become the conduit to a deeper life experience.

During the short car ride, we talked about the delicious flavor of the scone and the warmth and sweetness of the coffee as a complimentary flavor.  We pondered the life experience that inspired  the composer who’s rollicking Scherzo punctuated the cityscape outside the bubble of the world in our car.  We connected to each other and to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes around us and for a few moments in time.  We were both completely present to what our senses offered us.

At drop off, I hugged, kissed her, and sent her off on her way, hoping that she would bring this sense of presence to the rest of her day and not trail off into worrying about things that haven’t come to pass.  She learned at the knee of a professional worrier (me),  who learned from countless generations of worriers; it’s woven into our DNA.  It’s not how I want to live anymore. No matter how much my focus on future contingencies feels like control in the moment, it ultimately cuts me off from all the beauty and goodness happening around me.

So now, as I begin my day I am connecting to the present moment.  I feel expanded and more powerful. I’m tuned into my senses, my intuition and the people I meet.  I’m grateful as my heart opens to the beauty all around me.  Huh, this is easier than I thought it would be.
