The Omen of Sun conjunct Mercury on the Summer Solstice

Center-stage on the Summer Solstice is the Sun and Mercury conjunct at 0 degrees Cancer. They join forces at the very beginning of the road. They lend their power to our capability to follow new paths, formulate new plans, and move through life in more fluid ways. Do not discount the powerful potential each has to re-direct situations and circumstances this Summer. Plans that truly take you into account and work for you can be formulated, and much can pass out of your life in the name of healing.
What Not To Do: For one, don’t try to fool anybody this Summer because everyone is going to be more sensitive and intuitive than usual!
What To Do: This is an excellent time to feel your way through any healing process, personal transition, or creative project with many unknowns. These things can demand deeper understanding, and you can get deeper now…just go slow, and pay attention to inner signals and outer signs that present themselves.

Signs of Coming Together in the U.S. and Spiritual Guidance for July on Father’s Day

Today is Father’s Day, and as an American, I feel unusually on my own, and without a comforting national father figure who, along with other smart people, is guiding the motley crew we are as a country.

Wondering about the future well-being of the United States, I turned to the spirit world. There were numerous messages about what would make a divided country come together. One that struck me was about the indigenous peoples’ struggle to keep alive the spirit of the land in their latest battle with the DAPL. Their ancient knowledge of land stewardship, and the battles they chose to fight for basics like water, were necessary and it would say alot about our direction and success as a country, whether they won or lost their battles.

Meanwhile, here’s a message I got when Neptune turned retrograde a few days ago. It will be more pronounced in July but it’s relevant now:

Water’s message about July 2017: Running through July is a powerful wave of emotional energy. What roils it up, whips it up and makes it surge, is harping on something: going back to the past – how things should have been, and what is wrong. You don’t want its powerful force to spill into relationships via “who did what” conversations about the past as it can lead to a tsunami of unwanted thoughts.

“Uncontrollable” is July’s middle name. Rx for making July work for you: Have short-term daily goals. Clear short objectives can lead you to this energy’s positive potential to blast things along in the right direction. It’s good to make the short term goals about you or your project and not something other people need to do with you. Deadlines are helpful. A lot can be going on around you that’s distracting!

How the Force Can Be With You in July: If you can get centered in a comfortable place from which you express yourself, July’s powerful energies connect you to people and circumstances that pull you along in a faster current then you were going before.

TripAdvisor Review: Santa Fe Trip with my three daughters” Reviewed March 23, 2017

I just returned from Santa Fe New Mexico, where my three adult daughters and I had a wonderful visit to the Land of Enchantment! On our last day there we found Elissa Heyman and asked her for a group/family reading. We loved how down-to-earth and authentic Elissa was with us. She was the icing on the cake for our trip. Each of got exactly what we needed, and as a family, it was a spiritually bonding experience. Thanks to Elissa for the good work you are doing in Santa Fe to make the world a better place!

Divination Best Practices and Tips for the Tarot Reader

[st_row][st_column][st_text id_wrapper=”text_9789e91303f23ac628eda7222b64f6b7″ ]


People all over the globe for centuries have been interested in two inter-related things: what’s the best way to live in this world, and what’s going to happen in the future?

Faced with different paths and choices or stuck somewhere in between, people want to know what is the “divine will” and the divine guidance about the matter. In every country and on every continent, people have invented systems to do this: the I Ching, the Mayan Calendar, the casting of stones or cards or other objects. Anything can be turned into a divination system as long as its symbols are relatable to the diviner, and have associations with phenomena in nature.

Sometimes the way information comes to the diviner changes. I have always had a way of getting insights from the directions: East, South, West and North and their associated elements, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. For years I just used it for myself and also for making predictions in horoscope columns that I’ve produced since the early eighties. At times it was a daily practice of tuning into the different forces of nature and what the spirits of each direction had to say to me and about the day.

Just yesterday, I got the insight to stop using this method the way I now relied on it. Over the years it had morphed into mostly a practice to get insights for my clients. The more I worked with people, the less I did my own circle work. Until now, when in the course of my own spiritual evolution, I got the insight to return the directions divination to a personal practice. Voila! My intuitive intelligence immediately gave me a new way to get pre-appointment insights, which I used today.

Those two things that everybody wants to know create a puzzling situation for the tarot reader. Which one are the cards answering? Are they giving advice about the better way to do things given the current circumstances and options, or are they telling you what’s going to ultimately happen? Although this answer will differ according to each diviner’s symbol systems, ultimately the most important fact is that the cards powerfully stimulate the intuition. The cards laid out in a pattern that makes relational sense to the reader act like an ignition key that turns on their intuitive intelligence. Working together, the intuition and the imagination make the jump from staring at pieces of paper to reading a detailed map.

No matter what the method of divination, if you want to read for other people or divine about world events, feed your own soul first: begin by asking the tarot, for instance, for whatever guidance or healing you might need. When your own cup is full and you have soothed your own self with the wisdom or truth of a higher vibration, you’re in the best position to read about other people and things.[/st_text][/st_column][/st_row]
