What will you hear about when you watch this video?

You’ll hear why 2018 is such a powerful year for you! You’ll be delighted with how accessible Therese makes astrology for you to tap into and use in your own life!

You’ll also hear how 2018 opens the door to VERY different forms of planetary energy that have not been available to us in the last 30-84 years.

You’ll hear Therese discuss these energetic shifts and the potential opportunities and challenges they reflect and reveal for us this year.

You’ll receive inspiring information and manageable, astro-aligned homework questions for your SOUL to help you appreciate, track and enjoy your year!!

You’ll hear Therese describe enough of the mechanics of the planetary movements to provide a basic understanding of what’s occurring in the sky without getting bogged down in too many details or straying too far into astro-mythological stories that aren’t pertinent to your life.

You’ll also hear:

  • why it’s valuable to have astrology discussions;
  • how astrologers do their work;
  • the value of having an astrologer work with you on your own chart;

 

Do I need to know astrology to watch this video?

You don’t need to know anything about astrology to watch or listen to this video.  Simply allow astrology terms to wash over you, since I provide plenty of English language words to support and develop those terms.

When and where did you record this video?

Recorded on January 17, 2018, on the day after the New Moon in Capricorn, at Unity in Chicago, a spiritual home and venue very near and dear to me since 1998.

When and where will you give your next astrology talk?

I hope to return to Unity in Chicago and Full Bloomed Lotus 2-3 more times in 2018 for more exciting discussions about astrology in 2018 and beyond!

How can I keep in touch with you until then?

What’s your approach, when you talk about astrology?

In the astrology discussions I offer, my goals are to be informative, affirming, enlightening and inspiring.  Although astrology can be a complex, symbolic, language-system with myriad ways of measuring and considering information, I’ve discovered a genuine passion and ability for making astrology accessible to laypeople.  By embracing what is both magical and practical about the language, I zero in on salient themes of a given cycle and offer valuable insights for people to consider.

I describe enough of the mechanics of the planetary movements to provide a basic understanding of what’s occurring in the sky without getting bogged down in too many details or straying too far into astro-mythological stories that aren’t pertinent to your life.

What will I gain from watching your videos?

You will gain increased awareness of the divine dance of the cosmos that we are all intimately connected with, so that it’s easier  to consciously engage with the energy expressing during a given time.

I believe these energies and themes belong to all of us, and express for all of us, and I love speaking of them in ways that people can begin to understand, embrace and make good use of in their own lives.  I describe enough of the mechanics of the planetary movements to ground people in a basic understanding of what’s occurring in the sky without getting bogged down in too many details or straying too far into astro-mythological stories that aren’t pertinent to people’s lives.  I strive to share this information with as much kindness, good humor and grounded wisdom as possible since the planetary bodies and their movements are already spectacular and don’t really need to be sensationalized.  In my discussions, I invite audience members to consider stepping up their game in bite-sized ways that they can appreciate, track –and enjoy!!

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius and the Full, Super Moon – Could less be more?

Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius and the Full, Super Moon – Could less be more? 960 686 webmaster

Please note:  I offer astrology chart readings in private, individual sessions only.

For full description of EVENT SERVICES, psychic tarot card readings, please visit my home page or previous blog post: Why feature psychic readings at your next event.

And, as always, the insights and views I express in this blog and video are my own interpretations and opinions — you’re welcome to consider or disregard them, along with any suggestions offered, as you see fit. Thank you for visiting!

Astrological energies can express in many ways and, like a giant cosmic mirror, can reflect choices and potentials back to us across a range of possibilities.  With that in mind, here’s some information about the next Mercury retrograde cycle, in case it’s useful.  Mercury retrograde officially starts on Sunday 12/3/17 at 1:34am CT and this one could be a doozey (don’t shoot the messenger!) as it begins on the same day as the full Moon in Gemini (one of two signs ruled by Mercury).  This Full Moon will also be the only visible Super Full Moon in 2017 meaning that it occurs at the point in the moon’s orbit where it is closest to the Earth. This causes it to appear slightly larger and brighter than normal.

retrograde in December

This retrograde cycle could find many of us backtracking in order to reconnect with important issues and details that might have been overlooked in recent weeks; the silver-lining could be recapturing a sense of hope, adventure, and excitement and reclaiming threads of opportunities and goals we might have been distracted away from.

Be careful if tempted to alter or burnish the facts when revisiting previous communications– honest re-appraisals could lead to valuable learning or more satisfactory resolutions.  Saying too much, over-explaining, lacking filters or nervous over-sharing are potential persnickety pitfalls of this particular retrograde cycle.  People could also be more inclined to judgmental attitudes and impatience, making loads of assumptions about “what other people ‘should’ already know or understand” in addition to the “usual” issues that correspond with Mercury’s retrograde cycle where communications can go haywire and information can be lost, not available, or not clearly communicated.**  There could also be a preponderance of people vehemently expressing opinions or preferences as if they were facts.  Exaggeration, misinterpretation and interruption could become more prevalent in everyday exchanges, especially when communicating with folks who are over-booked or over-committed.

Keeping things brief could be an especially useful tool during this retrograde cycle.

For more information on Mercury retrograde cycles in general, please visit https://www.theresemurphy.com/private-psychic-readings/ where I have 2 videos posted about what the Mercury retrograde cycle is and what it typically corresponds with, or, read more below**

The dates for this Mercury retrograde are 12/3/17 – 12/22/17 and since the next cycle starts in a couple of days, we are already in its pre-shadow phase where its effects could begin to express.

BTW, I apologize in advance, but I likely won’t be responding to individual questions about the retrograde cycle.

** A Mercury Retrograde Cycle is neither intrinsically good nor bad.  It’s a 3 week cycle that occurs 3-4 times a year for approximately 3 weeks.  During this period of time the planet Mercury appears to move backwards from the Earth’s vantage point.

Since Mercury appears to be retracing its path through the heavens, it can be beneficial to revisit, review, rethink where we have been — It’s a great time to have a personal, intuitive reading to support your process of reviewing and reflecting and preparing for what’s next!

Matters related to Mercury’s domain (information, communications, travel and exchange -including commerce) can be heightened and challenged in ways that make it hard for them to move forward smoothly.  Often, perspective is lacking, needed information is missing, important details could be over-looked and delays, glitches or breakdowns occur.

mercury retrograde December

Given this planet’s associations, its retrograde cycle often corresponds with unclear or frustrated communications and travel delays.  Paying extra attention to details and allowing extra time for travel, meetings, errands and commitments can help decrease the stress of any snafus.  Prioritizing one’s serenity can help in gauging when to walk away from an argument.

Issues or people from the past have an uncanny way of showing up during Mercury retrograde cycles.  Sometimes it’s useful to get another look at something that once was vexing to see how far we’ve come, but getting re-involved with the old dynamics, people and situations is likely to yield the same result as before.

Mercury retrogrades can also reflect upsets with your instruments of communication and travel.  Cars, computers, phones, appliances might act up or break down completely.  If you travel, allow extra time and reconfirm your reservations.  Consider going somewhere you’ve already been.

Mercury retrograde cycles are not considered ideal times to launch new communications or initiatives, sign contracts or make major purchases.  Some people prefer to postpone those types of activities until after the retrograde in attempts to minimize the potential for miscues, glitches and revisions.  However,  it’s considered a great time to go through files, correspondence and clutter to clear them out.

What’s cooking in the cosmos these days?

It’s Autumn in the Northern hemisphere!  On Friday, 9/22/17, the Fall Equinox occurred and the Sun shone directly on the equator, creating almost exact equality in the length of light between day and night.  Pay attention now to how enormous and direct the Sun appears as it rises in the East and sets in the West — this is indeed a magical time!  In Western astrology, the Sun entered zero degrees of Libra, the sign of the zodiac which invites us to consider, with neutrality and grace whenever possible, the concepts of balance, fairness, relationships and cooperation. We’re invited to consider our participation and to interact with a lighter touch. This year’s Equinox carries its own unique and challenging energy with it and, in many ways, sets the tone for the quarter, until the winter solstice.

How can you hear more about this? 

We discussed these energies in much more detail at the Astrology Talk here in Chicago, on Wednesday night, 9/20/17, which was the day of the New Moon in Virgo, with the Moon moving forward through Libra, 2 days before the Fall Equinox.  Tune into the video of that talk below.  Attendees also received hand-outs with astro-aligned homework questions for their SOUL.

We talked about some of the reactivations of the Great American Solar Eclipse ( I can’t believe it’s only been a month since that amazing event!) AND the healing opportunities of this lunar month, AND the healing messages of the Fall Equinox AND some powerful Scorpio transformation themes: the Moon was in Scorpio at the time of the equinox; and picked up some of the energy of the last 9 months of the challenging Jupiter-Pluto square; and planet Jupiter, which magnifies whatever it touches, moves into the sign of Scorpio on 10/10/17 for the first time in 12 years; where it will remain for the next 12 months!

Saturn is also connecting with the Galactic Center this Fall*

This was the 4th talk in my 2017 Astrology Discussion Series which has been very popular and inspiring for those who have attended.  In these talks, we look at the amazing and powerful planetary energies expressing and the major themes of the Now and how these energies and themes relate to YOU so you can connect to CO-CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT.

When will your next talk be?

We’re in the process of setting the date for the next talk and my 2018 speaking schedule.  We hope to return to Unity in January to preview the Major Energies of 2018.

How can I keep in touch with you and your upcoming public events until then?

Free Meditation Gift!

In honor of the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday 8/21/17, I’ve felt inspired to share this free meditation with you.  It can be used YEAR ROUND to help connect with the area in the body where NO FEAR exists!  I call it the Blue Flame Meditation and I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

This meditation came to me, and through me, intuitively while on a Saturn walk this summer and, even though I was the channel through which it came,  I hesitate to call it mine.  When I channel energies and information, they come through me from a power greater than I am.  And, in the interest of being clear, I wasn’t taught or given this meditation from anyone else, although many years ago, I first heard of this point of “no fear” in the body from another source.

 

 

Post Eclipse Discussion!

How long will this summer’s eclipse affect you?

The energy of the Total Solar Eclipse of 8/21/17 will have ongoing effects for weeks, months and possibly even years after the eclipse which will take time to assimilate and integrate.

 

How does the Eclipse energy get reactivated?

The eclipse point of 29 degrees Leo, the sign of love, creativity, joy, celebration, expression and play, will be reactivated by the movements of the Moon, Sun and other planets periodically and WE ALL have 29 degrees of Leo, symbolized as a mermaid rising from the ocean! somewhere in our astrology charts.

For example, planet Mercury which is associated with communications and information, while appearing to move retrograde, will travel near action planet Mars from Sept1- Sept 4, 2017 AND BOTH WILL PASS THROUGH AND REACTIVATE THE ECLIPSE DEGREE of 29 Leo– as Mercury prepares to station and turn direct in its apparent motion from the point of view of the Earth!  Yes, that’s a mouthful and a lot of energy stirring!!

 

How can I find out more about what all of this means for me?

The best way to find out how the eclipse energy and its ongoing reactivations connect with your energy specifically, is to schedule an intuitive reading (using Tarot Cards or Astrology). therese@theresemurphy.com

 

What the heck are Mercury retrograde cycles, and why are they useful to know about, in plain English?

For more description of what Mercury retrograde cycles are, please visit the brief, informative videos posted on the PRIVATE READINGS page of my website.

 

Where can I hear more about these comments and energies?

You can hear more about the magical symbolism of the mermaid rising from the ocean, as well as, full astrology discussion of this important eclipse AND additional reactivation dates occurring this Fall AND what the Eclipse means for all of us AND how you can connect with its ongoing energy in a very conscious way, by tuning into the video from the talk I gave on 7/23/17 here in Chicago.

When is the next Total Solar Eclipse occurring over the United States?

As you’ve probably already heard, there will be another Total Solar Eclipse passing over the United States and parts of Mexico and Canada on April 8, 2024 — and the Eclipse in 2024 also occurs in an astrological fire sign during a Mercury retrograde cycle!  Yes, in our western astrology system, the Total Solar Eclipse of 2024 will occur in the fiery sign of Aries which is the sign of the brave, independent, pioneer — as well as the impatient adolescent.  In fact, the Sun and Moon will be joined by Mercury retrograde, Venus, and Chiron in Aries that day.  Stay tuned, I’m sure we’ll be talking about this next eclipse in the not too distant future!

Here’s a link to an interesting article on the April 2024 Eclipse from accuweather.com

Why Feature Psychic Readings at Your Next Event

Why Feature Psychic Readings at Your Next Event 1280 853 webmaster

Why hire someone to provide psychic readings at your event?

So many reasons! In fact, there are as many reasons for hiring a professional psychic to provide readings at your event as there are events and people planning events. People hire psychics because it’s unique, fun, cool and interesting. Sometimes people want to try something new or different–or they’ve had readings with me at parties before and they know how informative, spot-on and popular readings can be.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions from my clients who are planning parties and their guests. My responses are based on 22 years of experience providing authentic intuitive readings at events and parties. Enjoy!

 

What do you offer for parties, what does it entail?

Each guest receives their own individual, intuitive reading –couples sometimes like to get a joint reading about their relationship. I use tarot cards when providing psychic readings at parties since tarot cards are very conducive to accurate, insightful mini-readings. Tarot cards also work really well because they’re beautiful to look at and they give guests a way to interact with the experience by touching the cards.

When I read tarot cards, I’m also channeling and sharing information and insights from various angelic, astrological, intuitive, feeling and energetic realms. I often receive visual images to share and a great deal of auditory information- words, phrases and descriptions – to weave into the reading from the various realms. So, even though I often say things in a friendly, conversational style about what “the cards are telling me,” my readings offer a lot more than a mere description or interpretation of cards.

 

I know that most of my guests and I will love having readings, but I’m not sure if ALL of my guests will be into it.

Very often the guests who are unsure, or even skeptical, about having readings at parties decide to have a reading once they see how much the other guests are enjoying the experience.

Ironically, it’s often the guests who claim to be the biggest skeptics or “who don’t really believe in this stuff” that can’t seem to stay away from my table and are the most impressed and pleased with the experience of their mini readings.

In fact, I had this experience again, just the other day. A guest made a big fuss and announced how he was a complete skeptic and wasn’t even sure why he was sitting down for a reading. I assured him that it was ok to be skeptical, since “belief is not required” and that he was free to take or leave the information offered in the reading as he saw fit.  Sure enough, a minute or two into the reading, his entire facial expression softened and his eyes widened dramatically. He listened a bit more and then said, “you’re completely winning me over with this. I can’t believe it!” At the end of the reading he said, loudly, that he was “completely blown away!” and couldn’t thank me enough for the insights.

Therese Murphy tarot card readings

I’m curious about what you would say, but I’m not sure I believe in this stuff:  

Your mini reading can offer information that can be interesting to know about more so than statements to believe in. Tarot is a tool and the intuitive readings I offer aren’t connected to any religion or other belief system. My readings are much more like looking at personal energetic “weather” forecasts, describing personal energetic weather patterns or cycles — and none of the information described is set in stone. A person doesn’t need to “believe in” the weather in order to consult a radar; and sometimes weather patterns move or change over time.

Sometimes people consider the readings as “entertainment” which helps them keep an open mind to listen to the information and derive value or meaning from what’s shared as they see fit.

These distinctions can help set a more neutral tone and workable context for people so they can enjoy the discussion of the energies during their readings, hold onto their own discernment and freedom of choice — and have fun at the party!

 

Do the readings focus on the past or the future?

Every reading is unique and has some correlation with a person’s own level of awareness about their lives and choices and experiences. Most of the readings that I provide at parties contain some mixture of past and present information –yet the focus of my mini-readings is usually on the next 12 months or so of personal weather information. The past sometimes reveals itself in general, or specific, ways during a reading and so can a varying assortment of future potentials which might be present at a given time. And, sometimes information comes through about energies that seem further into the future than the next 12 months.

While it’s true that past experiences can color or influence present situations, the past tends to come up in readings to the extent that it takes up bandwidth in a person’s present life experience. If the past isn’t highlighted specifically in your reading, I trust it’s because life would not have us focus there for your messages. It’s also useful to keep in mind that readings take place in the present moment — where all the creative power is.

 

I think it would be fun, but I don’t want to know anything bad, or alternatively, I want you to tell me everything. Don’t leave anything out. 

I genuinely strive to be as positive and uplifting as possible when presenting information – that’s important to me. Whenever possible, I’d like the readings to be empowering for people.  It’s a common misconception that a reading will be, or should be, shocking or over the top, in some way –although people are often delighted, impressed, surprised, enthralled, affirmed, moved, or blown away by the readings and feel that they are “spot on.”

Life is about cycles– some wonderful, harmonious or easy and some are more challenging — that’s true for everyone. My job is to tune in, make contact with the messages that are coming through in the moment and to communicate them as clearly as possible. My intention is to be honest, kind and compassionate in presenting the information. Often the messages come through with good humor. I don’t withhold information, but it does matter to me how I present it, so that it’s more likely to be heard with the heart and understood with the mind. After all, it’s a party and we all want people to have a good time!
