Today we discuss New Year, resolutions - and Suzi talks of the wonderful 'witch's ladder' she makes each year as a naturally-powerful reminder of things she wants to be and do. And there's a question about writing - how we achieve the discipline to do it. Maggy's answer? Engage with the Muse of inspiration. She's there and she's waiting, but you have to show up.

Today we are discussing the journey ... that the road to joy is the road itself. We touch on Advent, the sacred preparation time before the return of the son/sun, on the nature and importance of pilgrimage and how we humans respond more readily to images rather than the written word.

Today we are talking about 'The Master Maker' - the topic chosen from today's Oracle Cards. It's fair to call it a wide-ranging discussion :-) including slow food and slow work, being pieces in a puzzle, how lack and greed are connected and what is, and is not, ours to do...

There's more to it than that, but we wanted to look at the differences between fate and free will and President Trump's chart is a very helpful example of someone driven by their subconscious. We hope you enjoy it - it's all about levels of power.
