Jupiter in Scorpio: Energy Reading

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

Today Jupiter, the cosmic magnifier, moves from balance-led Libra into the transformational waters of Scorpio. Transformation is hardly new to us right now. In fact, Jupiter in Libra has seemed to be more about shouting down injustice than living in a state of peaceful balance. My guides, The Light Circle had this to say: At this time, as Jupiter moves into your astrological sign of Scorpio, tensions and feelings are running high. There is a great deal of emotional overwhelm at the moment, as the energies, feelings, and intuitions are flowing around you at a pace that is greater than you have previously experienced. Many of you are adjusting well, and yet this doesn’t mean the process is easy. Rather it means that you are flowing at a greater rate than you would previously have deemed possible to bear. The emotions that come with this Scorpio period will be many and varied. The experience could be anything from extreme joy to extreme sorrow. Old cycles will end and new ones will begin. As such, this will be a period of great renewal that will take you deep into your own emotional body, to experience the depths and heights that you are capable of.

Energy Reading for October 2017, Find Your Own Moral Compass

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

October is a month of contrast.
For many of you, relief and freedom will now come through change, through following the path that takes you away from the status quo and towards a new sense of security that is based not on static structure, but on the transformative fire of forwards movement. You will seek out each and every pattern that has you feeling stuck, recognising the stagnancy of the energy and the way it holds you back. Issues that have long seemed tolerable, will begin to feel impossible as you move through this energy, which is crashing through the structures that have held you unnaturally in a state of status quo.

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction Leave a Comment

I’m so pleased to welcome Shelley Wilson to the Curious Mystic to talk about her new book, Oath Breaker. I was on a reading slump, and this is the book that finally broke it. It’s a great story, with werewolves, hunters, romance and lots of action. And I’m not the only one who enjoyed it. Today Shelley announced that Oath Breaker was an Official Winner in the New Apple E-Book Summer Awards 2017. I had a lovely chat and lots of laughs with Shelley, as she told me what inspired Oath Breaker, revealed insider secrets, and gave me an inkling of what’s coming next. Do click on the video below for the full chat.

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

September brings a change of pace. Whereas you have been living through an explosive period of change, the time has come for focused creation of that which you wish to manifest in your life.
In September you can start to build or rebuild. You will find that progress becomes easier, more flowing, as long as you are aligned with your path and the current energetic climate. For those of you who are still fighting the changes, who still hang onto the old ways that have not served you, this time will be challenging. It will push you harder towards the change you resist, but which is embedded in your soul path and in the developmental process you chose before birth. For those who embrace the transition, you will find the opportunities will be surprising and sudden in their appearance.

Anger – A Key to Power and Drive

Martha Dunlop How To, New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

Dr Seuss has it licked in ‘The Places You’ll Go’. He knows just how self work runs. Sometimes:
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Then come the days when:

‘you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.’
Anger drives some amazing ‘slumps’. Feelings rise up and take us by surprise. How irritating is this – we just want clearing, not more rage. It’s tempting to wheel out the positive affirmations and focus on what’s good. Except that anger has so much power wrapped up in it. If we keep damping it down we lose out.

Energy Reading for July: Breaking Open the Heart Chakra

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

You have been undergoing a period of explosive change, where the unexpected has become the norm. This feels very destabilising to many, maybe most. And yet it is a period of change that is spectacular in its scale, and far reaching in its benefits. The benefits may seem unreachable at this point, but you will see large scale change and transformation in the governmental bodies and structures that underpin your societies, as you move forward into a new age.
During this last month of June, there has been a series of occurrences that have elicited responses from the general populations that are perhaps not as those in power would have expected. Light has been shone where there would have been darkness. There has been outrage where there would have been silence. There has been compassion where there would have been hate. This is a monumental shift in reaction, in consciousness, in awareness of those around you, and of the plight that others endure. This is a shift towards collective consciousness, because those of you who watch, are experiencing these happenings at a heart level as though they impacted your lives on a personal basis. This is a collective opening of the heart chakra, a widening of sensitivity and awareness, and of allowing in the greater part of your soul.
