Get ready for one of my favorite Holidays Samhain ,coming very soon. Many people observe this Holiday on October31 ,and of course All Saints Day is the next day.Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season but many combine it with The Day Of The Dead or All Saint’s Day (Which is traditionally celebrated on November1st). I always remember this since my brother Frank’s birthday and my new Father In Law are born on that day. In this time; or through this time, “The Viel ” is very thin . Our ancestors are very near and listening keenly to our wishes,our hopes and dreams,and our deepest worries and woes. We are heard more clearly than usual and our ancestors answer us more clearly.Im not saying that we don’t always have a connection if we meditate or pray, but there is something about this time between middle of October through to November that for me personally is a main connection to communicate with the dead.There is also a strong connection with the communication from the dead to us. They are listening always but they are more verbal and more “Alive” and more Visual than ever before in this time.There are many rituals that can be done to communicate with our dear loved ones and our spirit guides,it all depends on the time you want to spend and your level of concentration.I usually have a nice glass of Wine or Mead and light a candle and bring photos of the people I wish to communicate with,and also a bowl of cold water and a clear crystal quartz for visualization. I carve Pumpkins and put little tea lights in them and I am a child again. The more you are in touch with your childhood innocence the more the ancestors answer you.
There are many rituals this is just a simple practice that I offer to you,I will post more about Samhain as the time gets closer. Blessed Be, Maria Lee Carta (Scruchina)
We are coming into a time of change as we start to enjoy,these cooler and more pleasant days ahead in September.Its the “Turning Of The Wheel” getting close to ” Mabon”,and one of the prettiest seasons in New York.In this month of September we of course are now in a Nine Month which “Nine” has the power of all the numbers in the “Numerological Alphabet” and it is a time of completion .It is also a time to reevaluate since we come into a “Mercury Retrograde ” in this month as well. No biggie since we know better than to start anything new but it is a time to finish up and re-evaluate our homework. We also face an interesting Solar Eclipse on September 1 in early degrees of Virgo and a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the the 16 of September. This Lunar Eclipse will be in the very sensitive,creative and psychic of signs; Pisces (later degrees). In each sign there are 29 actually 30 degrees if you count 0,it measures the time from the beginning of the month until the end of the month as to when exactly you enter each part of the sign. The time of your birth or the Ascendent is the most important part of a persons chart since it measures exactly where the Sun was at that time to record your particular chart. The place or town also, as equally important,this is what we are born with and it is called The Natal Chart. As time goes on and we get older;especially after the age of 8 years old the current transits really become more important to us. These are “Progressed Planets” and Transits and that it what goes on on a daily basis ,through the weeks and months ahead. These are “Transits”. In this month of September we will all do allot of reevaluating and changing our minds about things,but at the end or near the 22 of September we will”Wrap things up” and learn a few lessons. On September 30 we have a bright New Moon in the sign Libra and the Sun will be in Libra as well. Its a great time to try on beautiful New Fall Clothes and look great go out and have a good time. Its a wonderful time for travel,long or short distance and a time to love. Venus energy is very strong and Jupiter will now be in its tour of Libra for One whole year and it is a time of New Beginnings as we go into October. October is a 10 month 1 Numerological One,it is the number of New Beginnings.There will be allot of Love being given and received and the energy is very romantic. This romantic energy becomes stronger and stronger as we near the 23 of October and come into the sign of Scorpio,it then ignites and becomes super sexual! We will all enjoy this time of the year no matter what sign we are and many will be thinking about nesting,coupling and even getting married. As we get closer to Halloween many questions are answered and mysteries are resolved. Enjoy !The
Fall its a lovely time! In Love & Light,Blessed Be and Merry Meet Again,MLC
We are just a few days away from a “Quirky” Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.Of course there are other things going on which heat it up a bit,,and of course,Mars being in Sagittarius and in the same sign with Saturn (Which is now direct) can make us all very impatient t;no matter what sign we are.Uranus (which rules Aquarius) is in Aires and Mars being in Sagittarius is a bit fiery with the Sun still being in its fellow fire sign Leo. Lots of fire out there; with the sudden energy of Uranus in fiery Aires. Pluto being in Capricorn is making a square to remind us that “You Can’t Always Get What You Want But If You Try Sometimes You Get What You Need.” Thank you ; Glimmer twins! So lets all just mellow out and pick our battles wisely because we all know that there are always those Cosmic Idiot’s out there always ready to get under our skin! Pick your battles wisely as we are getting closer and closer to a Mercury retrograde (In the very picky sign Virgo) and it will square some of these planets in Sagittarius and still aggravate us but the Sun going into Virgo may cool us off a bit. We can use a little cooling off here in NYC since the temperate has been pretty high in the 90’s and 100’s and we are all “Hot Under The Collar”,and tired of it already! Lets talk about some cool stuff ok? We have a nice Solar Eclipse coming September1st in Virgo unfortunately Mercury goes retrograde on the 30 of August so we get some good stuff coming our way but it doesn’t last very long. We will get the full benefits of it after September22 (A High Master Number Day !) so we have all just unfortunately have to be patient with September and wait for the good luck coming our way by the end of the month. We also have Jupiter leaving its tour of Virgo and going in to Libra for one whole year. I am loving this since my Neptune and Saturn conjunction will love the creativity and psychic energy it brings me. We all have Libra some where in our charts and by knowing your Rising Sign or Ascendent (Time you were born ) you can tell very quickly.On the 16 of September we have a Lunar Eclipse in the sign Pisces. Its later degrees of Pisces so will be a little bit closer to the sign Aires (gives it some spice). This is a total Lunar Eclipse in the very psychic sign Pisces so it will be very hypnotic. This Full Lunar Eclipse will be visible in Asia ,Africa, Europe and parts of South America.Normally this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse would bring the vibe of peace and love ,but with Mars and Saturn in the middle of it there is bound to be some destructive forces at home and abroad. Lets throw some positive light out there as mans urge to create should hopefully be stronger than his urge to destroy .After the 22 of September ;after Mercury goes direct,we have a nice energizing trine with Pluto that will get the brain power going once again.Transits are never all good and all bad but sometimes its just intense out there in The Universe and we have to be aware and prepared as to not be brought down by petty disturbances that get blown out of control . The end of September will put us right back on track and anything is possible with the transit into of Jupiter,now doing its tour of Lovely Libra .Thats all for now ,MLC ; Peace. Look out for my series of Video’s starting in August (I will surprise you ) Light & Love & Play some loud Rock N Roll!
August is a very active month,with many changes which are long overdue and ready to happen. We must prepare to be ready for the unexpected and sudden changes that are ready to take off in an instant.Uranus being in Aires and making a nice connection with Saturn and Sun in Leo will let all frustrations start to flow.I will be starting a series of YouTubes and Vimeo’s look out for them soon.Light & Love
In the next few weeks we will experience many changes as the planets move from Cancer into Leo.Many of my Leo friends will start to perk up and feel happier. This effects us all of course and as we get closer to September we come into” The Season Of Eclipses” (once again)and there will be many surprises and changes that occur suddenly like it or not.The first Eclipse will be in Virgo;making a nice conjunction to the sun &Jupiter still in Virgo.The second Eclipse will be in Pisces;making a connection to its ruler Neptune. There will be allot of psychic energy in the air as well as many secrets coming out into the open that can confirm many of our psychic vibes.Later in September Jupiter will leave Virgo and go into Libra where it will stay for one whole year.Jupiter takes twelve years to move into each sign of the Zodiac and it stays there for one whole year.I am lucky enough to have Jupiter on my Neptune and my Saturn and that is a place in my chart that is so connected to the psychic world and my creative energy so I look forward to it in every way.This transit effects everyone because we all have Libra somewhere in our charts.We should have a beautiful Fall full of lovely flowers because Libra is connected to beauty and Venus makes a nice connection to the Sun at that time of year so it will bring some beautiful skies as well.I will be returning to my new home soon and I ask all of you who follow me to make sure that you have my email and SKYPE number . For those of you who are interested in having a reading and do not know if I have your birth info or not please get in touch. I wish you all a Happy Summer and a Beautiful Fall! Love & Light to all! Merry Meet and Merry Meet again,Blessed Be, MLCO- Scruchina.Stars from Maria
We are in a time right now that is highly emotional at the drop of a hat,and words can really make an impact that is lasting at this time. Saturn is getting ready to make a strong connection with the next Full Moon/Blue Moon in late degrees of Sagittarius,on June 21. Mars is still retrograding and at this point, is at about 23 degrees of Scorpio. Mars will not go direct until June 29,and that is when things should calm down a bit. We will be in the shadow for a few days but by beginning of July we should all see what has been hidden for so long.Neptune being in Pisces can be psychic but we have also had a retrograde with this planet as well. Any deception that has been going on will be revealed and many people will be able to make decisions in a mature and responsible way. Look at it like a road block being lifted and now you can race to where ever you want to be.The Psychic energy is very strong with this connection of transits and there is allot of creativity in the air.There is allot of emotion out there as well.Lets remember that “Mans urge to create is stronger than his urge to destroy”.———-MLCCO
