Do you think only magicians can perform magic?
There is no such thing because we all have the same capabilities. It is all about tapping into that potential and using it in the best way possible. That is what magicians do, they tap into that potential. Let your mind become still, by becoming patient.
YOU ARE READY TO TURN YOUR IDEAS INTO REALITY
The Magician is one of my favourite Tarot cards and represents the conscious mind, which is concentration and singleminded attention to a specific idea or goal. Every moment of our waking lives is motivated by some kind of desire. Look at the ideas ‘The Magician’ is offering you.
The Magician card stands for ‘reveal’ as in a magic trick. Now is the perfect time to move forward on an idea that you recently conceived. The seed of potential has sprouted, and you are being called to take action and bring your intention to fruition. The skills, knowledge and capabilities you have gathered along your life path have led you to where you are now, and whether or not you know it,
HOLD THE VISION
Poof!Now here’s a new idea, why didn’t you think of that before? Truth is that you probably had that intention all along.
Hold your vision to see what can be done and have the strength and fortitude to do it.
AND SO IT IS
The Magician card is numbered One – the number of new beginnings and opportunities
You are likely to make new starts in all manner of respects. Almost any movement will be better than none.

The Message: Love Relationships. Partnerships. Family. Co-operation.
What could make you feel more connected and loved by your partner?
‘Partnership is giving, taking, learning, teaching, offering the greatest possible benefit while doing the least possible harm.’― Octavia E. Butler,
The Lovers are an obvious reference to partnership and marriage. encompassing all pairs of opposites: Male and female. It is the self, independence and unity.
But it is not just about physical relationships but about the inner synthesis, between opposites, that has to occur before it happens with another being.
Balanced relationships or enlightened ones, come when first we love ourselves and act, at all times, as integrated and whole beings, for it is by acquiring perfect equilibrium and inner unity, that we can truly merge with another with integrity and equality.
DO YOU LET LOVE IN?
While every relationship is unique, it takes dedication, work, and love to make it work. Sure, there will be ups and downs but working through problems together is what makes relationships stronger.

It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people.”

The welfare of others will be of utmost importance. This is the number of the giver. But you must learn the balance between giving and receiving.You need to beware of giving too much as well of clinging to your ideals, especially when it comes to the idea of a perfect relationship.
It is a year for learning the lesson of ‘codependence’ that is not to suppress your needs for another and not go overboard with responsibilities.
Your Mantra for 2022 should be:
‘Communication is Key’
CALLING ALL EMPATHS:
You can say no to people and still have a kind heart.
The main aspect of being an Empath is feeling and experiencing the emotions of others. For example, an Empath can tell when another is nervous, when one is angry or sad. They may enter shopping centres, or busy peopled places, and feel an array of strange sensations wash over them like a tidal wave. This is due to the gift of being able to feel…

ODA MAE, BY GOD
(Laughs) Yeah!… Our husky, rebellious Whoopi Goldberg is nothing less than iconic. She has made a career out of not caring a fig what anyone thinks. ‘Funny’ outshineseverything. From being Oda Mae crazy, who sees ghosts, to pissing God off when she walks past the ‘The Colour Purple’ Whoopi’s hilarious character was made by God to be loved and appreciated. Ironically, as in her own life, most of the characters she plays have been misunderstood or overlooked by many at first.
‘I think the ‘Colour Purple’ is so bursting with love, the need for connection, the showing of the need for connection around the globe’ ~ Alice Walker
‘Every body wanna be loved’ and there is no-one more loved than our Whoopi, who personifies every feeling, from love, laughter, heartbreak and tears, in her own uproariousand ballsy style. She tackles the taboo subjects that are usually avoided and is an inspiration to humanity, proving that if you are positive you really can do anything!

Or that her favourite colour isn’t actually purple, its black and that she has a fetish for bizarre shoes. Her best loved movie is the The Lion King’ and her nickname is Da Whoop! Whoopi Goldberg brings so many blessings into all of our lives, but her only daughter, Alex Martin, is her top priority and I double ditto that!
The Lord has blessed us with Whoopi, who despite her fame and superstardom, is one of the most really, real people in Hollywood. She has touched our hearts and made us laugh and cry in so many ways.
WHOOPI’s MOTHERLY ADVICE
‘Are you having a good time?
If you’re still having fun doing what you do, then do what you do. If it’s not hurting your life…keep going.
If you’re not enjoying anymore, then you have to reevaluate’ ~ Whoopi Goldberg

Stay true to yourself Da Whoop!
‘God loves everything you love. And your failure to enjoy these things pisses God off far more than most of the things the Bible deems a “sin.” ~ The Color Purple

“…have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.”
Happy Birthday to the greatest Poet of the 20th century.
Dylan Marlais Thomas was born on this day 27th October (1914) in Swansea, Wales. Thomas was a mystical poet and writer of philosophy, whose works include the poems “Do not go gentle into that good night” Thomas has left an everlasting impact on Welsh culture. He had a distinctive and unique voice and wrote in a way that no-one else could.
Dylan’s Birthdate 27.10.1914 adds up to Life Path: 25/7
Dylan was strongly intuitive and had prophetic dreams. What others saw in him as intuition was a developed talent of observation and attention to details. He had an alert, energetic mind which always sought new enterprises, ideas and locations. A pioneering spirit and quest for knowledge, brought out the fiery missionary zeal within him. He was a spiritual crusader.
Because solitude is necessary for analysis, he would have felt the need to spend time alone, away from the crowds and in touch with nature.
… And of course poets and writers are all reclusive people. We are all writing to escape, just as readers, are reading to escape. It’s an addiction, its dreadful. We don’t consciously create a poetic style, but there is certain degree of concentration and there’s an element of consciousness, but not self-consciousness and an element of instinct.Inspiration often comes as an unexpected thing. The real beauty is when you are taken somewhere where you weren’t expecting to go.
THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
I believe the gist of ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’ is that we should want to get as much living done as we can while we can—that we wring it of every flicker of light before that light dies. What an ingenious use of words.
‘I’ve just had eighteen straight whiskies. I think that’s the record’ ~ Dylan Thomas
“Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toenails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone and not alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own. All that matters about poetry is the enjoyment of it however tragic it may be all that matters is the eternal movement behind it – the great undercurrent of human grief, folly, pretension, exaltation and ignorance – however unlofty the intention of the poem…” – Dylan Thomas
He lives in the hearts of many even today.
History has Dylan dying from drink, but here is another theory

Hell, no, don’t ever read me a Stephen King bedtime story!
Even the thought of opening a novel that Stephen King has conceived, gives me spikes of anxiety. I’ve almost scared myself to death, researching his profile today. But… it is his birthday and we should celebrate all of the insanely creepy characters, he has devised to scare us through the decades.
I’m trying not to think about them right now. I actually don’t like any of them. They aren’t real, right?
THE DEAD ZONE
Whether you love his stories or (like me) avoid them, sooner or later, most people wonder how, Stephen King even imagines; dead pets, evil clowns and psycho killers, living in small creepy towns?
‘Ghosts sit around the campfire and tell Stephen King stories’
As one of the worlds top selling authors of horror and sci fi; there must be a method to his ‘madness’… King says: ‘What if’ is always the key question. If, being the only word that is a thousand words long.
Believe ‘It’ or not, all of his stories are based on similar events, but he catastrophizes the worst most tragic and horrifying things that could happen.
‘I recognise terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorise the reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I’ll go for the gross-out. I’m not proud- Stephen King

As a teenager, everything around you is changing. I struggled to adjust. I was too young, to be taken seriously. At least for me, one thing was a constant. The iconic ‘IT’ girl friend of the future generation. I loved her, I wanted to be her. I spent hours studying her make-up. I was mesmerised by her.My desire to be authentic, was greater than my need to fit in with the expectations of my peers, so Twiggy became my greatest role model.
“I used to do my own make-up. I used to have this doll that had those big eyelashes on the top and bottom, and I think I copied her when I was doing my eyes, putting false eyelashes on the bottom as well as the top. So I came up with that look myself’ ~ Twiggy
I was an awkward, shy child, Twiggy was ten years older than me. I admired both her purity and the confidence she had in her own womanhood. Did she know how classy she was? It seemed to me, that she was one of those rare people, who had nothing to prove to anyone. She was my leading light.
Fab in the 60’s and she is still fab now!
