Happy Indigenous Peoples Day! I am choosing to celebrate Columbus Day as such. I want to honor my ancestors. As we have learned that through my father’s great grandmother that we are connected to the Iroquois Nation. More precisely the Oneida tribe. My family and I have known this for some time now. But this time around I want to remember those of my blood line and for all the indigenous people who have been forgotten. So for all the Native peoples of the Americas this day is for you. Also, Mercury Retrograde is over. Thank goodness..however it may take a minute for some of us to get back into the swing of things. But know that worse has passed and you should be able to rest easier.
This week’s themes speak of your literal ship coming in. The waiting period is now over. You have sown the seeds and they are now bearing fruit. We also have a message from a loved one from the Other side. As well as a crystal reading from the Angels.
Monday-Wednesday~Angel of Contrast/ Snowflake Obsidian

As you all know I live in New York City. Last Wednesday, I was sitting on a subway train, looking out of the window, as I am wont to do. The train was approaching the last stop and it rides over Coney Island Creek. The train had stopped between stations, because it was waiting for another to train to leave the terminal. While a bit aggravated with that, though I should be used to this. After all it’s a common theme on the NYC subways. I used to live in Coney Island as a youngster. I’ve ridden out here many times on the train over the creek and all I ever saw was abandoned boats, muck, and pollution. So while waiting I have my face pressed to the window for the lack of anything better to do. And lo and behold to my extreme surprise I saw a swan swimming by. Yes, you read correctly..a gorgeous swan swimming in the murky waters of Coney Island Creek in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, by the time I took out my phone from my purse and unlocked it. I wasn’t able to snap its picture. Why? because the train began moving again. Sometimes, we New Yorkers, may a see a creature out of place. There were the coyotes running all over Manhattan. An alligator finally caught in Flushing Meadows Park. Dolphins in Gowanus Creek, Sea Lions frolicking in NY Harbor. My daughter told me that she saw on the news that there was a cougar on top of lamp post in Manhattan last week. Hawks,Bats, Eagles, Owls…oh my … lol Anyway, I love Swans, they’re beautiful, even if they have a bit of a nasty reputation.Now I introduce you to this week’s totem….
Be fearless in your role as guardian. Defend what is right.
If Swan has come across your path;
Is heralding in the development of your intuitive abilities and altered states of awareness. You are going to be shown new ways of thinking, breathing and going with the flow of life. You are being asked to accept your ability of knowing what lies ahead. pay attention to your hunches and gut instincts and honor your feminine intuitive side.
Alternatively you are being reminded of your own inner grace and beauty and to allow it to shine forth for others to see.
If Swan is your Animal Totem;
You have the ability to see into the future and to accept the healing and transformation that is so constant in our lives. You tend to be completely monogamous in your relationships. Often finding your true love at a young age and staying together through the years. You know how to balance work, family and play and recognize the value of personal solitude as a form of recharging your batteries. You are comfortable in crowds – yet know how to maintain your individuality in these situations.
If Swan has come into your Dream;
When you see a white swan in your dream it symbolizes beauty, dignity, grace, purity, wealth and prestige. Something or someone that you may initially found to be unattractive can turn out to be very appealing. It is extremely important not take anything at face value right now.
To see a black swan in your dream signifies mystery and the unknown. It represents something that is alluring, yet believed to be forbidden.
To see a Swan in your dream could also mean that you must continue to act with grace through this difficult time. Know that you will receive a spiritual reward for your perseverance.

Wednesday-Friday~ My Mind is Free
“You know how I worried when I was in my physical existence. It seemed as if I spent most of my days–and nights!–feeling anxious about the future, family, money, and the earth. Now I realize that most of what I worried about was never a reality. And those things that did materialize I brought about myself, because fear attracts negativity. If only I could go back into my body for five minutes, I’d apply this new knowledge to show you a worry-free mind creates and attracts a worry-free life. This knowledge has completely released me from the bondage of earthly concerns. This is my greatest lesson, and one that I hope to impart to you: Give all your worries to heaven and never hang onto them. Be free of worries, and you found the greatest riches of them all.”

Just for Fun~Leaf Divination
Walking through the woods while leaves fall from the trees is one of autumn’s most magical treats. Trees have been a source of spiritual sustenance and symbolic divination for centuries. The leaves can also have messages for us.
Go to a place where you can walk under falling leaves. Catch them, or pick up ones you are attracted to. What messages do the colors of the leaves impart?
Green = growth, abundance, luck, health
Red = passion, love, strength, power
Yellow = joy, hope, sunshine
Brown = stability, comfort, home, simplicity
Orange = energy, balance, enthusiasm, warmth
Purple = spirituality, mystery, transformation, wisdom
Consider everything about each leaf to determine its message. Is it whole? Is it dry, or still fresh? What kind of tree did the leaf come from? Use your favorite reference about tree symbolism to determine what meaning the tree has for you.
Friday/Weekend~ Patience & Planning
Good things come to those who wait. This card signifies the qualities and letting go of control. You should now pause, rest, assess, and rethink what’s in front of you before continuing. The number 7 Physical Card reminds you to reevaluate the goals you’re seeking, your finances, and even your relationships. Take the time to review each area one by one, for there’s no rush when you’re planning for a successful future.
As you pause during this period, notice what has worked well for you in the past–not what you or others believe to be true, but in actual positive experiences. While you’re at this reflecting stage, you can stand back and plan how you’re going to handle potentially difficult, complex decisions and situations that may arise in the future.
