About me

claire-at-spiritual-flow

Hi there,

I am Claire and I’ve always been interested in maps, whether a crayoned treasure map as a kid or an ordinance survey map as an adult, the secrets they hold have always thrilled me.

I discovered astrology at 19 when I had my chart done and with it I discovered the biggest, most far reaching map of all. A map that allows you navigate the tricky path of your life, illuminating the stopping off points and future destinations like no other map can. I was hooked and still am.

As with all maps, to use them correctly and to their fullest, you need learn to recognise the symbols used and learn the key. This takes time and guidance and can become a life’s journey.

Mine has been peopled by classes, books and courses.  Liz Greene’s in depth discussions about astrology, mythology and psychology led me to take a psychology degree. My need to communicate what I had learned led me to Norfolk and a teaching qualification then onto a Diploma in Astrology from the Mayo School.

Norfolk’s clear dark skies offer a fantastic opportunity to follow the movements of the constellations and planets, particularly the moon and I am a great advocate of ‘back porch’ astronomy, which allows us to see this great map writ large above us. I am a Saggittarian and am always looking over the horizon to see where I want to gallop off to next!

So here I am at my next destination, sharing my knowledge and passion for a subject that has given me so much pleasure and guidance.

Claire

Astrologer’s Diary – Sunday 9th to Saturday 15th December

Thursday December 13th

I said yesterday that Mercury has moved into Sagittarius. If you like planet spotting, it is visible in the early morning just before sunrise. Luckily for me, a sleepy head, sunrise is very late here in the northern hemisphere as it is only 8 days before the winter solstice. If you want to find Mercury, first pick a clear morning! Then if you have the chance between your morning duties, school run, toast making, etc, go outside before dawn. Tomorrow Friday 14th, it is 7.59 in Norfolk (regionally it varies a little bit) look to the East and find Venus. It is very bright and beautiful at the moment. (I’ve been going on about spotting Venus in the morning for a while now, on and off.) Mercury is also bright and below Venus. Also, if you feel like braving the cold, tonight is a good night to go out and look for the Geminids meteor shower. We are very lucky here in Norfolk to have dark skies. Apparently is best to look for them at 2am but you can be lucky and see them earlier than that, they are a bit unpredictable!

Wednesday 12th December

Tonight just before midnight, Mercury moves back into Sagittarius. It was in Sagittarius all of November and spent the first two weeks of December in Scorpio where it turned round and is now moving forward again. Sagittarius is a lively, generous sign but as I have said before it is not too keen on details. So this is good for getting into the party spirit and giving great presents, but do check those pesky details like dates and addresses!

Tuesday 11th December 2018

Hello, it’s a beautiful morning, I love the frosty winter days. It’s not so good if you’re a chicken though! I had to melt the water on my birds’ drinker today and yes, one of them had laid an egg this morning. 🙂
Today Mercury communication planet is in the last degree of Scorpio, ready to move into Sagittarius. There is often a sense of urgency when a planet is in the last degree of a sign. It is forming a grand trine to healer planet Chiron and the Moon’s North Node in Cancer. Venus is making a positive aspect to gentle romantic Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So today is a good day for communicating about emotions and nurturing relationships.

Chiron the wounded healer went direct yesterday. Chiron was discovered in 1977 and is used by most modern astrologers. Chiron is classified as a minor planet and a comet. It orbits between Saturn and Uranus. It takes 50 years to go round the sun and has a very uneven – elliptical orbit, whizzing through some signs and spending ages in others. Chiron spends a long time in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac and has been there since 2011. It briefly entered Aries in April 2018 then reversed back into the last degrees of Pisces. It will spend the next few months until March moving through the last degrees of Pisces until it goes into Aries for good- well the next 50 years anyway. The symbol for Chiron is a key and in the Greek myths he was a healer and teacher who helped others unlock their skills and potential.
 
When Chiron is retrograde it is easy to get stuck in old self defeating patterns- tell me about it! So now it is direct this is a time to release those old habits, if we can. I am trying- yes, very trying says my husband.😉
 
 

 

 

 

Sunday 9th December

It is a lovely clear evening here in Norfolk and the new moon is visible. It is a beautiful silver sliver visible in the evening as it now sets after the sun. Tonight the sun set at 15.40 GMT in Norwich and the moon will set at 17:41 , so if you want to see it, pop out and have a look. It is in the South West low in the sky as it is in Capricorn. (Cloud permitting). A new moon is good time to start things and tomorrow I have a lot of reading to do! The new moon from our lane, just about visible in my photo.🙂
