Joan Grant

Joan Grant 12 April 1907 – 3 February 1989

Anyone who loves Egypt and feels its mystical pull will love to read any of Joan Grants books which are set in Egypt.

They were publicised as historical novels however they were based on her past live memories. When the ‘Winged Pharaoh’ was printed in 1937 during WWII there was a great shortage of paper yet her publisher on a large print run and insisted that her books would all sell and they did.

Winged Pharaoh

The story of Sekeeta, daughter of Pharaoh sent to train in the temple. Such a beautifully written story. Great insights into a functioning temple the training of an initiate. Some insights into the deeper meaning of some hieroglyphs. Sekeeta shares her insights generously.

‘The Eye of Horus’ and ‘Lord of the Horizon’

Eyes of Horus is set in 11th and 12th dynasty when there was a division between Upper and Lower Egypt. The land was divided, where Set was the God of rule. In the following book ‘Lord of the Horizon’ you see the rising of those that served Horus bringing Egypt back to light.

(I am transferring Astro Awareness pages here. It has been years since I wrote this, and I’m not sure about the dynasties. So will reread and come back to this. I think having read a book about Joan Grant she places it to 1st Dynasty. 6 Nov 23)


The knowing of things with the application of morality brings the ability to see far and wide.
In the seeing is the power,
the ability to take the higher ground gives the lighter part of ‘self’ freedom to express his or herself.

Experience turns knowledge into wisdom and often a book is the key of transformation.

Sagittarius Moon 14th December 2020 Time 16:17 00 – Moon Guide to make the most of this lunar cycle by Vassoulla.

 Direct Planets: Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, Athena

Retrograde: Uranus, Mercury

 The planets are now coming into alignment for the final finale, it’s the beginning of a new Earth that will reveal its self after the 21st December and the days that follow, the 1st of January finally brings us into the Universal light. 

This solar eclipse is revealing our power, everything taking place is taking us to what we are, our true authentic selves, raising our consciousness all according to our merit, from under world to over world.

Solar eclipse 14th December 2020.  The New Moon is exposing the darkness and close to Mercury opposes the north node.  This is promoting our awareness as so much information is coming to the surface exposing the truth, and from here on will show the many layers covering democracy and the underworld.  it’s not easy.  I think we will all be shocked as so much is revealed to us, there’s so much that could have made life easier, and life will won’t be the same after the 21st, much that has been long hidden comes hand in hand with the truth its basically the only way. 

As we move onto the 16th December again information coming through, its deep, passionate, strong and unyielding, we need to be careful how we communicate as its possible words can out of hand due to so much intensity best to use our energy in a way that can be positive, using our creative powers in a focused way so this energy is channeled positively. 

 The 17th December Saturn enters Aquarius and we get a different  slant here. This is all to do with being more social, away from the focus of ourselves and more with groups, co-operations working with other for the benefit of mankind no matter what we each do. This transit of Saturn in Aquarius we will love,  yet we will still need time to retreat and restore our energies, so this is quite major, and moves well with the new Earth that is on our door step.

The Sun also enters Sagittarius on the 19th December we are kind of getting a handle on all that has been released so far and feeling more confident as we dare to spread our wings, Jupiter also enters Aquarius on the 19th December and again Jupiter is much happier here as Jupiter is social, loves the media, loves to help and will do it gladly yet just to begin with, we will have to be patient, as we need get the equations right and this is also the influence of Saturn however it wont last for long.

 The 21 December and first quarter Moon is the big reveal, and the alignment of the planets, but no ordinary alignment this is the alignment of the different dimensions and frequencies of these planets all synchronised to release there light in one big boom, hence the light, the  awakening because then we will know! This is where we see clearly, we are not going to like it, but remember whenever there is a change everything around that is familiar will change to bring balance and harmony once more.

This is the last bit of the puzzle take in the information try not to be alarmed  or be in fear for everything has it purpose and will bring us to the great  reset, where we  will all be financially secure,  please be aware when the reset begins everything will be closed, and  connects, it’s all  part of the big plan to bring fairness to the world so sit tight, there are disruptions know that  once everything has settled all will be well.

The 24th December and Taurus Moon we are getting more aligned with what is taking place yet there are still some frustrations taking place this is so challenging as we feel we want to spread our wings yet life feels tight so hang in there.

The 30th December and Full Cancer Moon opposes Mercury and trines Neptune.  Today is the culmination to the new Moon we began this cycle with anticipation and is now fully revealed, there is an element of hope in the air as so much communications taking place checking out so much as everything has completely changed for the better amongst the debris, and ready to step into our new world we have created as the movement of we-the-people. 

This Cancer Moon is nurturing and we can do just that, and should with our intentions give ourselves anything we need.  But you know we haven’t seen anything yet as so much is to come to light, its going to be unbelievable free energy, lots of new technologies will now be released in 2021 now is our time! 

 As we move to the 4th January 2021 There’s going to be much more clarity, I say this only because there has been so any disruption yet now, we can see clearly, perhaps we need to revalue our feelings, as much will have changed due to these upheavals but we can do it!

The 6th January is the 2nd quarter and Libra Moon to do with justice that is now in our lap although keeping ourselves balanced is not easy, the best we can do is to keep focused on ourselves and keep centered so we keep our balance.

The 8th January is powerful Scorpio Moon and blends well with the Sun and Neptune and happy with the way events are unfolding.

The 10th January and Crescent Sagittarius Moon squares Neptune again more information yet to come, I feel this is a time for us to resonate with all the happenings and very wise to take in some quiet moments. 

The 11th January and dark of a Sagittarius Moon, and changes signs at 1 30 pm into Capricorn time to focus within, so serious thought going into this dark of the Moon.

Moon Phase 31 October 23

31st October 2021 Gemini Moon. The 29th  Moon conjunct Jupiter and with him a ray of hope has an opportunity for  expansion, as this is the energy of today, its not that we are so enthusiastic yet if there was indeed hope for something: this is the next stage, all we have to do is stay focused.

As we move to the 1st November the Moon is still in Gemini, only now we have more stability that can make our intentions a reality, although the energies are there to  help and guide there is some patience needed to see this through,  persistence will guide you to where you wish to be or want to accomplish.

.2nd November Moon in Cancer  this energy is asking us how we feel about our journey so far. Much of it is connected to money and how we make a living, are we doing what we are happy with is something we can check out.

4th November A Leo Moon and all feels good enthusiasm hope for change, and so much more, I feel has occurred already helping us all to  view and review our options, as life changes are fast now ensure we are happy with what ever is going on right now, and focus on the self.

7th November Moon enters Virgo the sign of clarity and practicability, here we are clear minded and have focus, the Moon links well with Jupiter, if we have made plans or anything that is on-going, today should give you the opportunity for expansion, or the next stage of development. A good day to make things happen.

9th November A Libra Moon connects well with Mercury, conjuncts Venus and links well with Pluto.  Pluto is now moving forward since the 11th October so all her connections now are about moving forward big time. All communications go well,  near and far and all flows well, also this feels life’s turn around time with Pluto in the picture enables one to make changes relatively easily, instead of the huge obstacles that we sometimes find.  This may also be connected with finance as did the new Moon, if we find indeed we have been lucky and received a windfall, should you choose use wisely as it doesn’t last forever.

12th November Moon in Scorpio  the Moon opposes Jupiter and kinda feels the energy of the 9th November, full of enthusiasm  and hope, will give us all loads of energy. However use wisely as by the evening we may feel  quite drained.

Moon Update

18th October 23 Moon enters Sagittarius life is a challenging concerning money, try a little patience as life is changing constantly and we will all be happy with the outcome.

By the 20th October and Capricorn Moon links well with Venus, Mars Jupiter and  Saturn, so I feel like we have opportunities coming our way. Note if there are any options? thinking outside our usual frame of reference, as there is always more we can apply ourselves too.  Lots of opportunities here especially with Jupiter’s assistance.

New Moon Libra 14 October 23

New Moon Libra 14th October 2023 Time 17h 55m

Planets Direct   Mercury Venus Mars Pluto

Retrograde Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune

14th October New Moon.  This s a bit tricky being the scales, they tip so easily. The new Moon points and opposes both Chiron and the north node, this is to do with moving forward ensuring we all have plenty financially to live our lives without these  worries .  Venus in Virgo is doing her sums to redistribute necessary wealth and opposes Saturn in Pisces, so not all will be happy about this. So although we cannot see it at the moment it’s all happening behind the scenes.   This is the main focus that will bring hope to so many, everything is going to be fair for all.

15th  October Moon enters Scorpio and we feel this drive to success, it’s important to focus on the self, and keep ourselves centered as outside influence are trying their best to cause a turbulence, all we have to do is keep focused on what we each need at this time.

Revelations of Pluto

Revelations of Pluto

The Greek Lord of the Underworld is called Hades also Pluto which means riches. Although s/he is terrifying, he is the twin brother of Jupiter the great giver of wisdom and expansion. And perhaps even stronger for he/r rules are never changing.

Hades was given no altar for us to worship like the other Gods and Goddess instead we have the eternal seed of death within us that needs to be acknowledge and respected with such reverence, he’s everywhere and nowhere to be seen. 

Born from the eternal Mother all the challenging aspects of human life are born, from old age, death, dreams, discord, the Erinyes, the Moirai, the Gorgons all sprang from her womb with so much anger, resentment, jealousy and frustration and darkness, rage, depression. This is the will of the dark yet rich Goddess and not the ego, once in the realms of Pluto we have no choice but to listen, because Pluto is the God/dess of invisibility for he wears a helmet of invisibility when s/he comes to the surface regions of the Earth. 

     These qualities are mostly unseen and repressed from life’s often tragic events in life, they remain hidden secret and put aside so we can move forward with the demands of our lives. Yet when there is a transit of Pluto up she comes to torment us with depression, anxiety, sorrow, restriction, rage, this is a great passion yet there’s no way out, it causes a type of death, a transformation.

Something has to give and it’s not Pluto so we have to surrender to this disruptive energy as we are stripped of everything that is superficial or no longer serves. it’s not a choice we have, we have to bow down in humiliation to retrieve ourselves to release and, leave our lives to the secret fate there’s just no choice. However, there is a choice called Eumenides (three kindly ladies, as opposed to the vengeful ladies called the Erinyes the terrible avengers of the mother), to offset the horror.  How do we do this? Well, we need to acknowledge whatever we are going through and accept  there is no way out, and off set it with an affirmation or any phrase or word that gives comfort, so although things are almost tragic it makes us so aware  that we are more conscious of whats going on within, and acceptance.

The daughters of Nyx and Goddess’s night are called MOIRAI or Erinyes or triple faced Hekate they are three in form and represent the three lunar phases the crescent, full, and dark of the Moon these in turn represent maiden fruitful wife and crone old age.

In Sumerian age that predates the Greek myth by some centuries the great Goddess was then called Ereshkigal (means Lady of the Great Place Below) who ruled the underworld of dead Ereshkigal had many servants and male adviser called Namtar whose name means fate, so there’s connection to the great place below and fate.

The Sumerian Queen of Heaven Inanna visits her sister in order to pay her respects to her sister’s late husband and is treated accorded to custom she is stripped naked and make to bow before her sister Ereshkigal.

This is basically the totality of us, our secrets our hidden from view, only to show up years later. Once we have traveled to the underworld we never come back the same way, we have to acknowledge so many different aspects of ourselves, we return naked, nothing left of the old self. So we receive a transformation, these revelations  are hidden from view, at another time we don’t even know we are there, other times we can acknowledge this fear, this darkness or negative energies and realise we have a choice of accepting and going through what feels like an eternity! We are there, we accept and go thought the rituals of release the goddess demands all to be released.   We can do it the hard way or the conscious way, but it has to be done.

Goddess Seshat – Putting a Line Under It

The Goddess Seshat is an ancient Egyptian Goddess. Her cord was used to lay the foundations of the temple, She is Goddess of all things.

Her cord stretches and separates light into different rays. It is like a line that can be shaped into any symbol, hence her presiding over writing. This ancient Matriarchal Goddess is gentle, wise and true in her ways.

They say Seshat is the wife of Thoth, though I suspect that when we were matriarchal learning was a more gentle path. Where as Thoth is the male side of Seshat’s coin.

As Goddess of the scrolls her cord is our life path. Destiny is a living force that binds us together. Seshat will teach you to be organised, to understand and give you perspective on where you are and help you to understand your karmic past that is relevant to your now.

Wisdom is created through the tribulations of life. We only seem to learn when times are tough. Face your challenge with courage, understand the lessons of that particular life experience and then use Seshat’s cord to put a line under it. That experience does not need to be held of carried. Let it go and take your gem of wisdom!

Seer Work mid 1990’s Palestine

About 20 years ago I took part in a group meditation/working with the intention of global peace and love.

There are two things that stand out and I’ve always carried with me. The first was seeing a man at a desk, everything beautiful and ornate. A wind came and the room became full of dancing rainbows making a wind making this man’s papers blow everywhere. He tried to keep things as they were.

Now it does seem that for all the efforts of keeping society the way it was, is not working – thankfully. People are standing up and changing things, look whats happening to Africa.

The second was seeing an evil worm that feeds on the misery of the Palestinian people. I knew that all the time there was unrest in Palestine we will not have peace. From that vision I’ve followed their plight.

We teach our children that two wrongs don’t make a right, and yet we have politicians who say that wrong is right.

I’ve always remembered these two parts together, we all have to be free and we will be. The Goddess is rising and will not stand for this. As the Goddess ascends so do we.

Make A Wish

A heart-felt wish with pure intention will come true.
The magic lives in you x

What is a Wish?

A wish is asking for magic to bring something to you that can seem impossible.

A real wish comes from the heart. It is the voice of your soul that inspires you to want more. Often it’s a secret want that have held close for a very long time. 

Sometimes wishing is a call to destiny to get you back on track to your rightful path.

What is Magic?

Magic is a name we give to the understanding that everything is connected, a force that we can all tap into. We can create what we wish knowing the power lies within. The concept at work here is: ‘I think, therefore I am’.   

In focusing, you are creating a positive vibration and with your belief manifest your will. Wanting and focusing on something driven by love and light will attract what you want, making things happen the unconventional way!

Things to Consider When Making Your Wish

We are spiritual beings whose limits are the ones we place upon ourselves. We have forgotten the magic we hold inside.  We can make life as we want it to be, doesn’t mean to say you can have what you want work free! 

You can only wish for yourself. 

If you find yourself in a hard time for example you are in a relationship which fails, to wish that person back into your life interferes with that persons free will and constitutes dark magic. Instead you could use something like:

‘I wish to be in a joyful and intimate relationship which flows with love’

‘I wish to be in a relationship with someone who can be my best friend and lover’

Sometimes life hands out difficult times and it is always in those times that we have soul/karmic lessons that you just have to work through them and eventually life moves on. 

You never know what is round the corner, sometimes you just have to trust that the Goddess really does have a plan for you. (How you see the Divine is a personal vision and connection. There is no right or wrong just what feels right for you in your heart.)

Words of Warning:

Make sure your wish is positive and solely for yourself.  

Do not wish for another and remember that if you ever interfere with another’s free will it will rebound on you. 

If you wish to harm someone or bring misfortune to their door it will bring evil to your own door, into your heart and stain your soul for lifetimes to come.  Ultimately live and let live.

If you want to wish something positive for someone it would still be wrong, pass this on to them and then they can use their free will to choose to make a wish or not.


What are you wishing for?

Think about what you really want and how you want to express that in words.

Take time to centre yourself

Write your wish on a small piece of paper.

Hide your wish – it is very important that it remain secret until the wish is fulfilled.

Do not speak of your wish – if you do if will interfere and stop your wish coming true!

Every time you pass your hidden wish, know it is there you will add power for your wish to come true.

When your wish has come true

Take your written wish from its hiding place. Take it outside and burn it and let the wind take the ash.

Say a heartfelt thank you to the Universe (or however you see the Divine) and let the wind take the ash. 

When you are ready or when you want to you can make another wish.

Please let me know how you get on, any questions let me know and I will use them to improve this instruction sheet.
