Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.Marcus Aurelius
December energies encourage you to find time for yourself, to rest and renew. It’s a month that brings an urge to have more freedom, and which gifts you a readiness to make big decisions.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that this oracle card from the CELTIC LENORMAND brings us this week. The CELTIC LENORMAND, with its beautiful Pagan and Celtic themes, is written by Chloe McCracken and the artwork is by Will Worthington.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
It’s a big week, a week of both mystical and practical energies, which starts with the Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on 21 December (Summer Solstice or Winter Solstice depending on your part of the world).
The week ahead is a powerful time for meditation, for ceremony, and for reconnecting with and honouring the Earth. It’ a time for slowing down, for connecting with our loved ones, and for thinking about our future direction.
Expect dreams with messages, sudden flashes of insight or ideas, and a deeper connection to your Ancestors and past lives. You might not see the whole journey ahead of you, but it is a good time to commit to a future journey of change. All you ever need to see is that first step. Then trust!
The stars herald positive changes, transformation and new ways of being. Hold those energies of hope and transformation in your heart as you pray or meditate this week and send love, healing and gratitude to the Earth – who needs our awareness and positive action now more than ever.

Supportive crystals this week
Turquoise works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Labradorite is a stone for deepening mystical connection, intuition and soul wisdom. It brings understanding and helps you to think deeply, boosting intellectual capacity. Chrysocolla helps you to release negative energy and old patterns, bringing love, light and healing into your world. It is a gently positive and reassuring stone that promotes self care. Sunstone (pictured) helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. In Sweden and Norway, in the old ways, it was often referred to as the Fire and Ice stone, as was considered to bring both passion and logic to a person.
Helpful Essential Oils
Oils that gift us compassion, nurture and release are what’s need this week.
Rose, Geranium, Cypress and Wild Orange will support you well in the days ahead. Rose is the supreme heart nurturer and will help you recover from trauma and upset. Geranium helps alleviate feelings of sadness and distress, and re-centers you. Cypress helps shift old emotions and reduces stress and anxiety. Wild Orange helps you move from depair back to optimism, and encourages creativity and flow. These oils can be used alone or in combination in your diffuser.
If you need help to find that balance, or a path back to yourself, grab a copy of my Journeymaker’s Planner for 2021. It has a blueprint within it to help you find your way. Details below.
Make 2021 A Powerful Year Of Healing, Connection and Regrouping
My much-loved Planner is now in its sixth year of production, and 2021 is the most beautiful and content-rich book we’ve ever produced. This 368-page book is a spiritual toolkit disguised as a diary & planner. Learn to tap into your intuition, honor your heart’s path and calling using skills like meditation, mindfulness, journaling, self-care, intuitive card reading, energy work, and much more. What’s more, there’s a comprehensive free online course that goes with the Planner, which walks you through everything we do within the pages!
There are 52 pages of rituals, information and activities to start your year right. Read about the energies of 2021 and how to make the most of them. The Planner is then divided into Quarters, each with a theme to support you. Each month starts with guidance for the energies ahead, and suggestions for crystals, gemstones and essential oils. After each Quarter you’ll find a review to help you learn, grow and plan.
To support your purchase there is also a Free Online Course, available in our Journeymaker’s Academy. Learn with me as I show you how to review 2020 and learn from the year, choose a project and habit for 2021, do a 10 card tarot or oracle card spread to guide you for the year ahead, and then create a plan for 2021 that is workable and supportive. No prior experience is needed. I’ll teach you everything you need to know with the free course that accompanies your Planner. You’ll learn to work with our monthly money tracker, Sunday planning sessions, weekly tarot or oracle card, habit and goal setting, reviews, coping skills, lightwork, meditations, affirmations.
And for every Planner sold, ten trees will be planted, to give back to Mother Earth.

I’m getting ready to conduct a big channelled webinar and guided group meditation with my Inner Circle this morning, connecting to Uluru and sending healing to the Earth, followed by a day of readings and then more meditation tonight with these special celestial energies. And later this week? Working out what Christmas might look like for Ben, the pups and me in these COVID times.
