🐇🐰🎆🎆Happy (Chinese) Lunar New Year

Hi Friends,

I have been thinking about rabbits a lot lately. My home has been without a pet for almost two years now and I miss having a fuzzy creature around to pet and nurture. I have been contemplating adopting a rabbit and becoming a “Bunny Mom”. How synchronistic that this year is the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese astrological calendar.

Traditionally, after the first new moon of the Lunar calendar each year, Asian communities around the world gather with loved ones to usher in the new year. This holiday also marks the beginning of SPRING. People spend time celebrating with family, food, fireworks and dancing.

The year 2023 marks the Year of the Rabbit and more specifically, the Water Rabbit. The rabbit is believed to be the luckiest of the 12 animals in the Zodiac. The Rabbit represents peaceful and patient energy while the water element is all about tapping into our intuition and trusting our instincts in order to bring about blessings in our lives.  If you are born in 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011 and 2023 you can expect good fortune, calm energy and prosperity this year. Einstein, Michael Jordan, Novak Djokovic, David Beckham and Tiger Woods were all born in the Year of the Rabbit. Let me know if you are too:-) 

I also love that in Chinese culture, rabbits represent the MOON. We had a lovely new moon in Aquarius this past weekend. I made my wish for a sweet little baby rabbit to join my family.

Lunar new year festivities will continue for the next two weeks and will culminate on February 5th with the Lantern Festival. This is also the day of the SUPER FULL MOON IN LEO, which I will tell you more about in the coming days. It is going to be intense!

Sending you all love and praying for your safety, prosperity, and peace. Let’s continue to support our Asian communities by joining in their celebrations and spreading the peaceful, light-hearted energy,

Happy Universal Year Number 7!

Hello everyone!

Happy 2023. How is everyone feeling on this wonderful Friday the 13th? 

I bet you are finally feeling like you are ready to kick into gear and get the show on the road after a slow start to January? RIGHT!!!

Don’t worry. It’s not just you. This probably has a lot to do with Mars finally completing its life changing retrograde and going direct (on January 12th). Talk to me again around January 18th/19th when our friend Mercury – ruler of Gemini and all things communication – also goes direct. Then we can finally get this UNIVERSAL YEAR NUMBER 7 going.

According to Numerology, every calendar year is associated with a single digit number known as the Universal Year Number. There are 9 Universal Year Numbers, and each one carries its own vibration and energy. 2023 carries the energy of Number 7. The number seven is considered very lucky in many traditions and is quite a popular number in general. Things that come to mind, include:

  • 7 Days in a week
  • 7 Chakras
  • 7 Continents
  • 7 Natural Wonders of the World 

….even the Harry Potter series makes reference to this magical number.  

But in Numerology, 7 years are all about diving inward. They are about radical personal growth, spiritual development and evolution.  During this year, we will all have a deep personal and collective need to:

Research, Reflect, Re-evaluate

Analyze Data 

Ask questions

Interrogate information 

If we do this properly, when Universal Year Number 8 comes around in 2024 with its focus on money & power we will be ready to rock and roll.

So how do we make the most of this Year Number 7? Well, think of it as a RETREAT, a time to go solo in order to go within.

I am also planning to use my Mayan calendar as a guide this year and to share more with you as promised. It is filled with wonderful guidance. Today for example is 13 TZ’IKIN and the advice for today is that it is a good day to talk to the ancestors and ask for their guidance about how to MANIFEST ABUNDANCE. We can receive very clear “answers” and visions on this day (and are encouraged to buy a lottery ticket or two).

I wish you a wonderful 2023! Enjoy your own company and remember these lovely words from Desiderata, “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence”.

All is well.

Solstice & Last New Moon of 2022. Time to Set New Intentions

Aloha my lovely friends

This is a very active time of the year: Christmas, Chanukah, the Solstice, Yule, New Year and the powerful last New Moon of 2022 (in Capricorn).

But I want you to know one thing: everything is working exactly as it should, according to nature’s divine plan.

This year, the Winter/Summer Solstice of December 21st falls on the day 3 E’ within Chol Q’ij according to the Mayan calendar. The nawal E’ rules over travel and exploration – both physical journeys and those within. When paired with the number 3, challenges on these journeys could arise and it is generally advised to expect delays, disruptions, cancellations, etc. We are better off spending the day going INWARD for some exploration on these days. Solstice is also an excellent time for ceremony to ask our guides to light up our path ahead.

Access to all that is magical and divine with ease and grace!

Ritual and ceremony have become a big part of my life and by performing & refining my practice, many ordinary moments have become sacred experiences. Looking back, that is exactly what I dreamed-in last Solstice:

Phew! I didn’t realize until this very moment how powerful that intention was.

If you are planning to do a SOLSTICE RITUAL (and I sure hope you do because the new moon 2 days later will help to amplify those new intentions) remember to also reflect on what you are grateful for. When we acknowledge our gifts, we cultivate a greater capacity to receive.

I am very grateful for our journey together!

Abundant blessings to you and yours and happy holidays. I would love to hear about your traditions at this time of year.

Love,

Final Full Moon of 2022 & More Mayan Astrology to Come

Hi Friends 

Wow, that last full moon of the year was HUGE right? Full moons are indeed a time of completion and illumination.

My BIG illumination was that this year, I’ve become much more in tune with our cyclical nature. Just as the moon goes through its phases, so do we. Reminds me of the song by The Byrds, Turn! Turn! Turn!  

To everything (turn, turn, turn)

There is a season (turn, turn, turn)

And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

The Mayans understood this so well.  

Mayan Fire Ceremony

They knew when to plant and when to harvest, when to give back and when to openly and unashamedly receive. I have loved learning and studying this knowledge and so many people have been telling me they are interested in knowing more, too. Some of my favorite questions are:

How accurate is the Mayan calendar?

Is Mayan astrology even a thing? 

How many days did the Maya calendar have?

What is the 260 day count (Chol Q’ij), the 365 day count (Macewal Q’ij)? 

How about the 52 year count and The Long count ?

Did the ancient Maya predict that the world would end on December 21, 2012?

What is the significance of the Number 13 to the Maya? I thought it was an UNLUCKY number (Friday the 13th?)?

Mayan Symbols?

What is Ceremonial Cacao? Is it the same as Nestlé Hot Chocolate?

I am happy to share what I know in the coming days. Is there anything else you’d like me to cover? Please let me know.

Very soon it will be Solstice time, and you and I will be dreaming-in magical things for 2023 with a cup of real Cacao in hand. Until then here are some lovely full moon dates for your 2023 diary:

11/11/2022 IS THE MOST POWERFUL DAY TO MANIFEST & THE PORTAL IS OPEN!

I love numbers! I’m an accountant, remember? So 11/11/2022 really turns me on. I am also a twin:-) these double digits really resonate with me.

The number 11 is considered a MASTER NUMBER in Numerology and there is good reason that we are told to Make a Wish whenever we see this number, especially on a clock. I bet you do this too! The 11/11 Gateway is considered to be very powerful. It is the perfect time to MANIFEST with the help of your Guides and angels. They are ready and waiting to hear your heart’s desires. 

In Tarot, the number 1 corresponds with The Magician, so the number 11 is a double dose of magical energy. 

The number 22 is one of three very important double-digit MASTER Numbers in Numerology: 11, 22, and 33. Also known as “Master Builder” it is known to bring together the material & spiritual. (It also happens to carry the energy of 11 x 2 = double that lovely 11/11 Gateway energy!)  My twin and I were also born on the 22nd of March. Double the pleasure.

Whatever you do, remember that energy goes where attention flows. So let’s focus all our energies on keeping our thoughts positive as we enter this powerful portal. 

Focus only on what you DO want and let’s manifest like the powerful Magicians that we are! I will be attending my sister Michaela’s Celebration of Love to her partner, Micha. This is what I will be focusing on! 

Wishing you all good things, more synchronicities and magic on this day & always.

Let me know how these numbers speak to you. 

Love,

P.S. I also received a wonderful review of my audiobook. You can read it here:

2 Weeks of Eclipse Energy. Are you ready?

Hi Friends 

I write this as we are about to enter an intense 2 weeks of energy. We have :

  • Partial SOLAR Eclipse Oct 25, 2022 2° Scorpio 00′
  • Total LUNAR Eclipse November 8, 2022 16° Taurus 01′

Eclipses tend to bring sudden changes and shake-ups. This is definitely going to be compounded because the earth’s Geo-magnetics are currently quite volatile. Scientists are recording a record number of solar flares (M Class and even a rare X class flare has been recorded recently).

As the Sun or the Moon falls into the darkness during an Eclipse, our hidden emotions rise and we have to deal with our shadow side more (Scorpio). Soul literally brings out all our old stuff in order for us to face the fear and make big changes. Things can get heavy, especially for empaths as it can be difficult not to be drawn into other people’s stuff.

During this time, the following symptoms are not uncommon:

Dizziness 

Insomnia 

Friction in relationships

Fatigue and body aches 

Out of body sensations 

Radical spiritual awakenings  

This is all part of your evolution, clean-up, upgrade and ascension process.

Healing waters of Carmel River

According to Hindu tradition, taking a bath in a river after the eclipse is considered extremely beneficial. It is believed that taking a bath in a holy river leads to the attainment of Moksha and washing away of sins. If you are not able to take a bath in a river, any old water will do.

There is also some good news! The period between eclipses is known as the Eclipse Doorway (2 weeks this time) and can be a time of radical transformation, instant manifestation and magic. Don’t be surprised if incredible gifts and opportunities drop into your lap at this time.

Please remember that anything that exits your life during an Eclipse, was probably not meant for you. If something new enters your life, it is for your highest good.

Love,

Cara 

P.S. On Saturday, 22 October 2022 (love those 2s!) for the first time in 150 years, the Venus Star Point will enter the sign of Libra offering us a great new chapter of change.  I found a great resource on the Venus Star Point if you’d like to read more : https://sophiavenus.com/venus-star-point/ 

Did the August 2022 Astrology rattle you?

Wow Friends, we survived August! Well almost.

I feel like we all deserve a pat on the back. There were so many notable planetary features including our 4th Supermoon in a row, 5 retrogrades, The Perseids Meteor Shower, Solar Explosions, 8:8 Sirius Rising and Saturn directly opposite the Sun. The energy has been go-go-go and we are all feeling a bit shattered from it!  

I’ve kept my head down mostly because I’ve been working on a new manifesting technique that I hope to share with you in the future.  

But astrologically speaking, everything that we have been going through is for a greater purpose as the old continues to crumble. We are in a period of accelerated evolution like we have not seen before; quite literally upgrading our DNA & consciousness in order to move on to the next stage of our evolution as a species.

The question I’ve been asking myself is how to keep on my path towards greater love & unity consciousness and not slide back down the rabbit hole of doubt, fear, lack, and separation during this time.

A little voice reminded me, Cara, you’ve got great tools to keep your vibration high. Use them!

My tools include:

  • Yoga
  • Making Love 
  • Cannabis 
  • Talking to myself on long drives 
  • Family
  • Divination 
  • Community (I’ve found a great new online Cannabis tribe) 
  • Meditation 
  • Visualization
  • Earthing
  • LOTS and LOTS of WATER

I’m sure you have many tools too. I encourage you to make a list and to use them to keep your focus on what’s important. The stars foretell of a chaotic couple of months to come. 

Here’s an affirmation for you during these times:

I am loved and supported in all ways at all times.

Psychic Attacks & Your Aura

The auric field is the pulsing vibration or energy field around a being. It can extend up to 25 feet in all directions from the body and is described as a combination of all the colors of our chakras with one appearing more prominent depending on what’s going on internally. 

Circumstances affect the aura and it is up to us to learn as much about this delicate field as we can in order to gain more control over our lives. The higher our vibration, the less chance we have of letting crap in. 

I remember ten years ago when I had a very bad car accident. We had just been camping, and I was furious with some other campers who kept us up all night partying. Deprived of sleep and filled with other frustrations (around my finances and other things), we drove up to the late night revelers campsite while they were still sleeping and blasted our music at full volume! My rage peaked as I felt my body shaking and I found myself actually enjoying the power of being able to disturb them as they had disturbed us. On the drive home just after that incident is when my car was hit by a truck.  

Knowing what I do now, I feel sorry for low-Cara; the woman shouting profanities and blasting the revenge music. I can’t help but wonder how different our journey home could have been if my aura did not have all the leaks in it. Did I invite the negative experience into my life because my auric field was porous? Did the campers send bad vibes our way? Did I attract one negative experience after another because of low vibrational energies such as frustration, anger, envy and guilt?  

There is no short answer to that.

But it was around that time that I began to seriously focus on keeping my aura strong. 

My mantra became: My aura is radiant. I am love, light, peace. I am protected.

I would say this with the biggest smile over and over throughout the day until I started to believe it. 

There have also been times when the dips in my auric field have been more serious. These times it felt like negative energy from other people was pulling me down and no matter how much I tried my trusty old mantra + other techniques, the feelings of despair and fear were debilitating. I believe this was as the result of Psychic Attacks. 

psychic attack is simply a negative energy that someone sends with the conscious intention to inflict harm on us. These dark energies infiltrate our psyche and weaken us. These times, we may need the help of professional healers/shamans to transmute these energies. I encourage you to seek help if you are under such an attack. Peace of mind and spirit are your birthright and no one has the right to try and rob you of that.  

As I prepare for the Summer Solstice coming up, I am working on letting all things LIGHT into my field. Negative energies thrive in the presence of additional negative energies and that ain’t gonna be happening over here at Cara HQ.

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, don’t worry about less light coming your way during the Solstice. The veil between worlds is said to be thinnest at this time so you have access to an army of angels, ancestors, guides and helpers just waiting to be called on. Use the darker days to go inward and to access the magic beyond what the eyes can see. 

If you need any help with your aura, whether it be cleansing or strengthening certain parts of it, drop me an email. I’d be glad to help.

Wishing you love, light and a beautiful, strong aura today and always,

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

P.S. Don’t forget to salute the big, beautiful STRAWBERRY SUPERMOON that will burn bright in the sky on June 14, 2022. It’s bringing the magic:-)

Tarot & New Earth

It was wonderful synchronicity when one of my clients told me he does Tarot.

I immediately knew what our energy exchange would be. I did his taxes and he did a Horoscope Spread Tarot card reading for me in return. Talk about New Earth principles in action.  

According to Wikipedia, The New Earth is an expression used in the Book of Isaiah and the Book of Revelation in the Bible to describe the final state of redeemed humanity. It is one of the central doctrines of Christianity and I remember that one of the prayers I used to hear/say in church always referenced “the world to come” (The Nicene Creed). In alternate circles, New Earth is thought to refer to The Age of Aquarius which we are currently in. There’s a lot of debate about when this period started but I think that December 21, 2020 at the time of the Great Conjunction is a safe bet. You will remember that this is when Jupiter and Saturn met up. These two celestial bodies align every 20 years but what made this ‘great conjunction’ special is that it marked the beginning of a new 200-year cycle. New Earth to me! Since the 1800s, Jupiter and Saturn have been uniting in earth signs and, before that, in fire and water signs. It’s been about 800 years since the last ‘age of air’. It was predicted that the Age of Aquarius would bring a shift beyond technological and medical obsession and that spirituality would boom again! We would crave a better way of working with each other and a greater sense of community. Growing food, sharing and bartering would become more normalized as we looked for our “tribes” again.  

I was excited on the day of my Tarot reading as I’ve never had a Horoscope Spread before! If you have ever thought of tarot as some dark art reserved for voodoo sessions, you’re wrong. Perhaps that’s got a lot to do with the notoriety of the Death card in movies etc?  My lovely reader explained that unlike my Oracle Cards, Tarot has a set number of cards in the deck. Each of the 78 cards has its own meaning. Once the cards are split and spread, they are open to interpretation by the person who is handling them who then passes that message on to the client for them to interpret further. The same principles would apply if you were doing a reading for yourself. The card would give a message. You would tap into your intuition/Higher Mind/third eye energy to receive and decode and then pass the information back through your more physically seated self to receive the guidance.  

When it came to my business, the card that showed up had a big focus on fruitful partnerships! Oh wow, I thought as I stared at the cards in front of me (which all talk to each other to form a complete picture), that’s exactly what I’ve been dreaming-in. Attracting the right clients and being the right vibrational match to those who service me = Abundance and growth for all! 

For your own reading visit http://www.janakasartandbooks.com


I’d like to teach people about this way of working and living. That’s another thing that showed up in the Tarot for me: A call to action to share my knowledge on the mixed-bag of financial and spiritual tools I’ve gathered over my 50-ish years on Old Earth:-) 

As I feel-in to what exactly that means, Happy June my friends! I wish you all things Gemini this month including magnetism, clarity of communication, and the ability to adapt to whatever comes your way. There is a super full moon on June 14th. Make it count. 

Love

My Love Affair with Cannabis

I’ve always thought Cannabis is like a woman: layers and layers; Persecuted and revered – full of magic and wonder!  

As you know, I am a big fan of this highly revered plant that has been cultivated for centuries. I have many years of experience in dealing with it. My lived experience is very practical (it helps me with concentration, to relax, and get out of my head) but it is most definitely also spiritual, helping to open my heart center by freeing my mind.  Our brains are full of cannabinoid receptors in areas of the brain related to behavior, thought, and mood. When cannabinoids in cannabis interact with these receptors, they produce euphoric, relaxing effects. 

Several factors can influence the effects—dosage, quality, strain, frequency and method of use. Different parts of this plant also have different uses. For example, I used a CBD concentrate for many years to calm my nerves. 

Before the recreational use of cannabis, it was often used as a tool for spiritual awakening, ceremony and meditation. It has deep roots in indigenous traditions on every continent and has been popular in India since the beginning of recorded history. According to legend, the Hindu God Shiva wandered off into the fields after a fight with his family. He was so drained after the fight that he fell asleep and when he woke up, he saw a plant that interested him. He sampled the leaves and felt instantly better. 

Goddess of Compassion and Mercy

So, how do we use edibles, candies, smokes, cookies or bhang (a popular drink in India) in a more spiritual way? Well, for starters, we have to align with the frequency of the plant in order to go beyond the superficial. Once there is a vibrational match, the next step is to be INTENTIONAL and RESPECTFUL. No one does this better than my husband Richard. He keeps records every season of what he has grown, how he fertilized it and when he harvested it. Talk about respect! 

One of the best birthday gifts I ever received was from Richard’s friend Joe who I share a birthday with. He gave me a CBD strain called Ringo’s Gift. It was creamy and smooth like a vanilla milkshake! It left me feeling grounded and peaceful, clear and focused and that first feeling stayed with me until this day. 

I am sure you can tell how passionate I am about this subject and I would love to engage and share more. If you would like to use cannabis for medical reasons, please consult a medical professional.

Otherwise, explore, grow and transform,
