The forecasts below involve two of my passions – astrology and tarot. The first card is a general message, the second is about love & relationships (sexual, romantic, friendly, familial). The interpretations are from my book, “Tarot of The Lotus Circle”, but you’ll have to use a little intuition to determine what it means to you personally. Have fun!

RomulusARIES – March 21 to April 19

Ace of Wands: You have been brought to the right place at the right time by fate, but a human hand is in charge now – yours. All you need is the faith that you can bring an idea to life, then perform an action to prove it.

Prince of Wands: A male under 40, with medium coloring, possessing both organizational and creative talents will play an important role in a relationship matter this month.

 

Falcon.phpTAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

10 of Wands: You do not have to do it all by yourself. Your burdens are not only heavy, they are drastically dimming your personal light.

The Fool: You are either alone or at a crossroads in a relationship. There are at least three options before you, but nothing will change until you make a choice and take the first step.

 

Gallant.phpGEMINI – May 21 to June 20

7 of Coins: You are asked to do an accounting of your positive and negative thoughts, words and deeds. Yes, in a way, you are being graded. A slight adjustment in attitude could make a big difference in the end.

6 of Wands: You may have doubted it there for a while, but you will now receive evidence that you are the favorite. You win your lover’s heart or the respect of someone else whose opinion is important to you.

 

Gabriel.phpCANCER – June 21 to July 22

Lucky moon babies – Jupiter is visiting Cancer until next July, so you can expect a major goal or dream to be achieved before the Great Benefactor moves on, as long as you put in the necessary time and effort.

5 of Wands: Life is filled with competition and conflict, but the Five of Wands tells you to be the best person you can be and ignore how others are playing their games.

The Magician: Someone new is entering your life in an unusual way. Fate set up the meeting long ago, but Serendipity makes it interesting. What you do after the encounter is up to you.

Carnal Vengeance-final coverLEO – July 23 to August 22

6 of Swords: Troubled waters may be all around you but you can rise above any problems. At least one Spirit Guide and one friend will create a bridge for you to safely cross. (Yes, this is the same message you received last month.)

10 of Swords: You’ve reached the end of a relationship as it has been. Either work together to figure out how to rejuvenate it or let it go and move on.

 

Unnatural Relations-final coverVIRGO – August 23 to September 22

The Empress: Femininity and connection to Mother Earth are your power sources. Subtlety, sensitivity and sexuality are your tools—use them compassionately.

The Hanged Man: It seems as though you’ve been waiting forever for that certain someone, or for a resolution to a problematic relationship. Hang in there, the waiting period is almost over.

 

Twisted Hunger-final coverLIBRA – September 23 to October 22

2 of Swords: Regardless of what is going on behind your back, you have two Spirit Guides protecting you. Don’t let your inability to clearly see an outcome stop you from taking action.

8 of Wands: Whatever the conflict, it’s resolved and you will be enjoying a passionate, yet free-spirited, kind of love. A plane trip could bring you and a loved one together, physically or emotionally.

 

Wicked Obsessions-final coverSCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

Ace of Swords: The energy of a new beginning is just ahead, but you seem to be hesitating. You have a powerful sword in your hand. Whatever you want or need to cut out, you have the tool to do the job.

9 of Wands: Regarding all relationships, extreme patience is being called for. If looking for love, you’ve got a bit longer before the ideal mate is in your field.

 

Serving NicoleSAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

5 of Cups: Though mourning is a healthy step in dealing with loss, it is not a lifestyle. It’s time to pick up the pieces, clean yourself up and get on with your life.

10 of Cups: This is the Happily Ever After Card. The perfect relationship with a long-term commitment or marriage is coming into your life. Family relationships find a comfortable balance.

CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

7 of Wands: Your intellect is all you need to get past the current obstacle. Step back, look at the big picture and find a way to do it smarter.

Wheel of Fortune: Your love life, and/or other close relationship, is about to undergo a big shift.

 

Zenith Rising CoverAQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18

8 of Coins: Be open to learning more about psychic realms, spirituality, predictive tools. Something is missing in your education that is vital to your growth.

Princess of Coins: A female under 35, probably with fair to reddish coloring and proud of her appearance, will play a part in resolving a relationship matter very important to you.

 

Ghost Lover CoverPISCES – February 19 to March 20

Justice: You need to find some balance in your life before you can move on. A past life is seriously influencing your present circumstances. Regression therapy could clarify what makes no sense. An encounter with the legal system may be needed.

RomulusARIES – March 21 to April 19

Prince of Swords: Time to switch from a holding/wait-and-see pattern to charging full speed ahead; trust that the Universe will protect you from the harm you’ve been concerned about.

King of Cups: A male over 40, probably fair in coloring, in a caretaking, medical, teaching or artistic career will play a very important role in a relationship matter this month.

Falcon.phpTAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

9 of Coins: A strong vibration of independence and prosperity is all around you. Money and comforts will come to you with little more than a wish.

Princess of Wands: A workplace relationship is in a transitional phase—one of you may be moving on or moving up, but the result should be beneficial to you.

Gallant.phpGEMINI – May 21 to June 20

9 of Wands: Patience. The Universe will allow events to occur only when the time is right, no matter how much you fret.

The High Priestess: You need some time alone to get to know yourself. Meditate on the sort of people you really want in your life. This is not a good time to begin an intimate relationship.

Gabriel.phpCANCER – June 21 to July 22

6 of Swords: Troubled waters may be all around you but you can rise above any problems. At least one Spirit Guide and one friend will create a bridge for you to safely cross.

3 of Cups: The upcoming holiday is a great time to be with family, old friends and kindred spirits. Attend parties, join a club or group activity to meet an ideal mate, but don’t get serious right away.

Unnatural Relations-final coverVIRGO – August 23 to September 22

4 of Wands: You are being blessed with the energy of a harmonious environment. Enjoy the moment of peace rather than struggle to force some sort of action.

4 of Coins: Either you or your partner are more interested in material wealth than love. Stop trying to convince yourself that that is enough for you. Don’t be stingy with your affection. There’s always more on tap to draw from.

Twisted Hunger-final coverLIBRA – September 23 to October 22

The Hanged Man: What you await is in a “holding pattern”, but it is in your atmosphere. Meditate on removing the obstacle that’s preventing it from landing at your airport, then practice your patience. It will come when the time is right.

Ace of Swords: Be cautious in new relationships, especially where the chemistry is very strong. There are strings attached, possibly another, pre-existing relationship. Ongoing relationships are about to be unexpectedly shaken up, but it will be for the best in the long run.

Wicked Obsessions-final coverSCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

The Moon: A veil of mystery covers the face of your future. Like the moon, time must pass for the full face to be seen. Check your astrological chart or an almanac for guidance on timing.

The World: Everything you’ve been wishing for in a partner is right in front of you. All the obstacles between you have finally been cleared away.

Serving NicoleSAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

Ace of Coins: You are about to meet someone new who either is, or will be, financially well off. A money-making venture could bring you into the perfect partnership.

inandoutoftime CoverCAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

8 of Cups: You have a lot going for you, yet your intuition is telling you that something’s missing. As long as you aren’t just trying to escape problems, it may be time to walk away from a current comfortable situation in order to find your bliss.

The Star: A good time to wish for a special person, or an improvement in a relationship, but be cautious in your wording. Though The Star may grant a wish, it does not guarantee a happy ending.

Zenith Rising CoverAQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18

Judgment: Incidents and people from your past are coming back into your life to haunt or help you, depending on your previous behavior. It is time to take a good look at your life so far and rework the plan for going forward.

6 of Coins: Though your relationship seems to have been one-sided for a while, that is about to turn around. You’ll now experience the good stuff love has to offer. If looking for love, try volunteering your time to a charitable organization.

Ghost Lover CoverPISCES – February 19 to March 20

SexyScopes – 2014 Annual Forecast

29 Dec

2014Book news first 🙂 – Thank you to all the loyal readers of my futuristic Innerworld Affairs series. The never-before-released Book 5, “ROMAN” will be available for download in the spring! My Amazon Author Page

When it comes to a long-range forecast that needs to be generalized for a large number of people, the metaphysical tool I find to be most accurate is numerology. I won’t list all the things that created negative energy, making tough situations even harder last year, but I would like to point out that in numerology 2014 equals “7”, the number that has two distinctly different interpretations depending on one’s behavior in the previous years—either positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion or challenging upheaval and confrontations due to situations one has been avoiding. Below you’ll find the key to discovering the numerology affecting you personally in 2013, but first here are the astrological factors that could help you do some advance planning.

Since Mercury rules travel as well as technology, it’s always helpful to know when that planet is going to be retrograde before planning vacations. In 2014, the weeks that could be troublesome are: 2/6-2/28, 6/7-7/2 and 10/4-10/25.

Next in importance to me is where Saturn will be hanging out because The Karmic Lord, or Teacher, as the ringed planet is called, tends to put its host through a series of trials and tribulations. Though the tests are individually designed to help the student address and grow past their personal karma, Saturn’s extended stay can be a heavy burden, especially if the person is resistant to growth. Saturn has been in Scorpio since October 2012 and will remain there until December 2014. A bit of good news for all you Scorpions, there will be a lessening of pressure during the planet’s retrograde period this year from 3/2 through 7/20. Just keep in mind, the sooner you learn your lesson, the sooner you’ll get rewarded for your efforts.

Equal in influence to Saturn is Jupiter, who is known as The Great Benefactor (I call him the Fairy Godfather). Jupiter supports dreams and goals, particularly those involving one’s career. Jupiter has been in Cancer since last summer, but it’s been hampered by its retrograde position since November. The big guy goes direct again March 6th so Cancerians will have four and a half months to use Jupiter’s energy to achieve an important career goal. Then, on July 20, all that sparkling goodness shifts to Leo for a year. Pay attention moon babies—it’s been 12 years since you’ve had this kind of supportive energy! Make the most of it before it moves on.

I will keep you posted on the dates of the New Moons, Full Moons and eclipses in my monthly posts.

And now, back to numerology and what it means to you in the year ahead.

Very simply, numerology is the study of numbers and their connection to the human experience. Within this study, our lives are divided into nine-year cycles, with each year carrying a specific energy, advantage or challenge. One important note—each numerological year runs from birthday to birthday, not January to December. That said, the following will help you calculate your current and upcoming year numbers in order to glimpse what 2041 has in store for you.
The first step in utilizing numerology is to condense the number in question (regardless of how many digits it initially contains) down to a single digit between “1” and “9”. This is done using simple addition.
In order to see what the coming year has in store for you, you need to know what number year you are in at this time and what energy you will be moving into on your next birthday. To figure that out, the calculation is made using your last birthday.
For example, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, the following would be the method of determining the energy or purpose of your current year:

A. Write down the last birth date in numerical form with plus signs in between each whole number:
11 + 5 + 2013
B. Each portion of the date must now be condensed to a single digit. The day is the 5th, which is already a single digit. To reduce the month and the year to single digits, add the individual digits together:
Month: 11 becomes 1 + 1 = 2
Year: 2 + 0 + 1 + 3 = 6

C. Now you have three single digits that need to be added together:
Month: 2
Day: 5
Year: 6
Adds up to 13

D. Since the total is a double-digit number, it still needs to be condensed to one:
13: 1 + 3 = 4

Thus, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, you are currently in a “4” year and will be moving into a “5” energy next November.
The last step is to find out what your year number means in terms of what you can expect to be the focus of your life for that year.

1 – Beginning of a new 9-year cycle, fresh starts, leadership, new ideas or plans
2  – Relationship issues (for better or worse), duality, double duty, options between two things or people
3 – Playtime, free spiritedness, taking risks, gambling, good luck
4 – Hard, possibly tedious or exhausting work, no time to relax let alone play, but if used positively lays the foundation for something strong and lasting
5 – Changes, transitions, halfway point in a cycle or major project, fine-tuning and making adjustments in long-term plans
6 – Domestic peace or harmony, comfortable home environment, rest and recuperation
7 – Depending on previous responses to situations or behavior leading up to this year, either upheaval and confrontations regarding issues being ignored or positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion
8 – Rewards for work done, favors returned, reaping the harvest of seeds previously sown
9 – Endings, conclusions, cleaning, de-cluttering, making space (literally or figuratively) for a new cycle

Happy 2014! I hope yours is magickal and all your reads are Passionate.

The interpretations are from my book, “Tarot of The Lotus Circle”, but you’ll have to use a little intuition to determine what it means to you personally. Have fun!

Cover_Start Your EnginesARIES – March 21 to April 19

5 of Cups: Though mourning is a healthy step in dealing with loss, it is not a lifestyle. It’s time to pick up the pieces, clean yourself up and get on with your life.

2 of Swords: You’ve had a feeling that there’s something going on behind your back and you’re right. Take off the blindfold and face the truth. You’ll be pleased to discover that it’s not as bad as you expected.

GhostsChristmasPast_web.blackTAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

Ace of Cups: The Universe is a generous parent, always willing to give more than you need. All that is required is your faith and love in return.

7 of Cups: You have multiple choices but seem to be waiting for a fantasy lover to appear. Connect your head to your heart, then make a choice.

Prince of Swords: Time to switch from a holding/wait-and-see pattern to charging full speed ahead; trust that the Universe will protect you from the harm you’ve been concerned about.

9 of Swords: At least one relationship in your life is causing so much stress that your body is suffering. It may be affecting your sleep or eating habits. Remember, you can’t be of service to anyone else if you are not well yourself.

Serving NicoleCANCER – June 21 to July 22

Lucky moon babies – Jupiter is visiting Cancer until next July, so you can expect a major goal or dream to be achieved before the Great Benefactor moves on, as long as you put in the necessary time and effort. (See opening note regarding Jupiter’s retrograde period.)

The High Priestess: Your intuitive abilities are at an all-time high. Your guides are ready to assist you at your slightest request. This is a time to keep your own counsel, however. Share your wisdom and secrets sparingly.

8 of Coins: If single, you are about to enter a relationship unlike any you have experience with. If committed, you’re about to enter new territory, like parenthood, or a change of roles.

Zenith Rising CoverLEO – July 23 to August 22

Justice: You need to find some balance in your life before you can move on. A past life is seriously influencing your present circumstances. Regression therapy could clarify what makes no sense. An encounter with the legal system may be needed.

The Lovers: Opposites attract, but respecting the differences makes the relationship work. As to love, the sexual magnetism is strong, but is it worth the price? One of you seems to be committed elsewhere, forcing the relationship to remain in the dark.

Ghost Lover CoverVIRGO – August 23 to September 22

Ace of Coins: A money Spirit Guide has just stepped forward to help you find a new source of income. It will be to your benefit to start fresh.

Queen of Swords: A female over the age of 35, either dark in coloring or nature, possibly in a position of high authority or in the legal field, will be at the center of a relationship matter that is very important to you; expect this to be time-consuming in an already packed schedule.

Falcon.phpSCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

5 of Wands: Life is filled with competition and conflict, but the Five of Wands tells you to be the best person you can be and ignore how others are playing their games.

3 of Coins: You have enough experience to succeed in a current relationship. Common careers and interests have formed a strong bond, but sexual attraction seems low. It’s what you need at the moment.

Gallant.phpSAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

2 of Cups: Listen to your heart at this time. Your conscious mind will only confuse the important issue. However, try to remember that there is still a world beyond the two of you.

Empress: Your sensuality is at a peak. Let it work for you. If seeds of love have already been planted, they are about to bloom. Pregnancy is associated with The Empress, so the time is ripe if you want that, take extra precautions if you do not.

Gabriel.phpCAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

4 of Wands: You are being blessed with the energy of a harmonious environment. Enjoy the moment of peace rather than struggle to force some sort of action.

The Magician: With The Magician on your side, you have the skill to surprise everyone else. This is a very lucky time for you to amaze and impress others with your abilities and ideas.

Super Heroes!

18 Aug

Superman SIf you could gain one super power, what would you choose?

Obviously that’s not an original conversational ice-breaker but, as a major fan of sci-fi, metaphysical studies and Super Heroes, I never tire of hearing what different individuals will choose. Thus, when I started writing romances, I focused on sexy heroes with superior abilities and put them in a futuristic world in the center of the Earth. And that was how the Innerworld Affairs series had its own Big Bang.

Romulus.phpROMULUS (my first) could communicate telepathically…perhaps because my personal wish at the time was to have a mate who would know what I wanted without my having to give step-by-step verbal instructions.

Falcon.phpIn the second book, I gave FALCON a long list of psychic skills to support his profession as a tracker, but I raised the heat level by making him humanoid with certain feline characteristics, like his eyes and tongue (you can guess what I did with that), plus I made him a confirmed sexual virgin.

Gallant.phpIf I told you about GALLANT‘s special gift, it would be a huge spoiler but I will say that it is something that could threaten the entire Universe.

Gabriel.phpAnd then there was GABRIEL, who considered his “gift” of being a universal receiver as a curse.

And now it’s ROMAN‘s turn. This is a book started a while back but never got finished, though I knew from the start what his special talent would be. The son of ROMULUS had no discernible super powers…until something happened in the fourth book. Now he can go invisible at will or totally dematerialize in order to pass through solid objects. With such an ability, it was quite natural for him to become a tracker…and a spy.

The first four books of the Innerworld Affairs series have been revised and updated and are now available at all major e-tailers.

But getting back to my favorite question—if you could have any one super power, what would it be?

A New Frontier for Star Trek

19 May

Well…I’ve been a bit busy in the past few months, but I’m BACK and promise regular posts from here on.

Having said that…Has anyone out there seen the latest STAR TREK movie?

I did, in IMAX 3D, and I have to say…

O. M. G.!

Kirk-Spock-Black-Shirts

 

 

I thought that the first “revamped” movie was brilliantly crafted, providing a much needed updating for today’s audiences while still satisfying diehard “Trekkies” around the world.  The bar was set pretty high after that.

 

Into Darkness cleared that bar by light years!

 

 

I am NOT going to give any spoilers in this, so never fear, but I will say that the movie again plays brilliantly off of original Star Trek components. Some are very subtle, but do contribute to the believability of changes in the original “WoK” story line.

Karl-Urban-Tribble

 

 

I think the casting for the new movies is absolute perfection, not the least of which is Karl Urban as Leonard “Bones” McCoy. I love Karl Urban and I have to admit, until I saw the first movie, I had my reservations about him as Dr. McCoy. He plays the good doctor to a “T” and adds a huge dose of sex appeal in the process. I hope he gets a “love interest” somewhere down the line…It IS only fair (hint hint).

 

 

Chris Pine as James Tiberius Kirk combinesKirk 2 roguish swagger, blatant sexuality and boyish charm with just the right amount of vulnerability. He has all of Shatner’s confidence and bravado, along with real human flaws that the original Kirk never seemed to show. Struggling and striving to overcome them makes for a much more realistic character that audiences can REALLY relate to.

Spock 1

Zachery Quinto’s portrayal of Spock is probably my favorite of all. Despite his Vulcan quest for logic in all things, his struggle with his own humanity is constant and adds dimensions to his character. These are qualities that the original “Spock Prime” (Leonard Nimoy) only openly acknowledges now, after a long and prosperous life. As with Kirk, glimpses of his basic human weakness make him stronger and all the more endearing.

The rest of the cast members are equally talented and have once again, been able to stay true to Roddenberry’s original characters and concepts, but enhanced them on all levels.

star-trek-movie crew

And speaking of enhancements… The special FX are off the charts, especially in IMAX 3D. This is definitely one you MUST SEE on a big screen! The action scenes are epic and the dramatic ones tear at your heart.

All in all…FIVE STARS!

Now… what will I blog about next?

Remembering the Topaz Man

12 May

steve-sandalis    If you’ve been reading romances for about 20 years, you undoubtedly remember the gorgeous and oh-so-gentlemanly cover model, Steve Sandalis. That’s him there, on his knees before Me (dressed as one of my time-traveling heroines) at an RT Booklovers Convention. In my Pirates! blog last month, he was the hot hunk with the eye patch on my original “Stardust Dreams” cover.

     Steve graced the covers of 6 of my Penguin Topaz books, but only on one did they graphically alter his image to make him a curly-haired blond to fit the story. That book was #4 of my futuristic Innerworld Affairs series. It was originally released in 1994 as “Stolen Dreams” but I’ve now updated and revised it to be released as an e-book with the new title, “FINDING TIME”. stold-cover

     All the new covers will be ready shortly and I promise to share them as well as let everyone know when the series is available for download, but for now you can check out a teaser on my websiteFinding Time.

And, oh yeah, have a lovely Mother’s Day y’all!

May all your reads be Passionate,

Marilyn Campbell
