The Oracle of Aotearoa Speaks

“Hush not a sound, let the stillness speak
bring a receptive mind to the answers you seek

Movements are subtle, keep the mind watchful and clear
Things may not really be as they first appear

Distraction and agitation dissipate one’s inner force
Obstacles may arise but remain on course.

Control the mind and focus the will
Apply targeted action with timing and skill.”

– Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber

Weekly Oracle


The energies on the tides of power move with deliberate purpose and are steady and concentrated. Focus and careful attention will enable you to navigate your way successfully through this week. Although there is a sense of stillness to the energy there is likely to be some ‘curve balls’ thrown your way this week involving factors that may be outside of your control. Be careful not to react unconsciously, rather maintain your own sense of inner stillness and dignity and keep a quiet mind free from distraction and chatter.

Receptive to subtle changes

Beneath the stillness there are deep underlying regenerative powers moving that bring positive long-term change and inner growth. This is an important time to be receptive to subtle changes that are occurring and quieten the mind in order to perceive what adjustments need to happen for you personally in your own life. Bring a sense of mindfulness to your actions and apply careful attention to what you are setting out to achieve. When the energies are still, there can be a tendency to slip into comfortable habitual patterns and that can be the time when important things are missed and key opportunities glide by unnoticed. Mindfulness is key to remaining alert to ‘trickster’ energies and the guile of the personality self.

Written in the Stars

Scorpio intensity

The potent New Moon in Scorpio on Monday 28th October brings a new lunar cycle and the potential for a fresh new start. Scorpio’s deep transformational energies will be felt throughout the week and you have the chance to make some important changes in your life. Expect the unexpected as the Scorpio New Moon opposes the planet Uranus, heightening the potential for change in your life and bringing to the surface deeper truths about yourself. This is the start of a magical new cycle and honesty with both yourself and others will enable you to ride these tides of power with greater balance and focus.

Mercury in Scorpio retrograde

The planet Mercury is in the zodiacal sign of Scorpio and is set to turn retrograde on Friday 1st November.  Mercury in Scorpio can test you at deep levels of intimacy as Scorpio creates a strong drive for truth and the unearthing of it. Psychic perception can be heightened and there will be times when your intuition sends through flashes of insight that simply can’t be ignored. Look at them clearly and objectively ensuring your ‘wires have not got crossed’ so that you can ascertain the deeper meaning.

Pay attention during this last Mercury retrograde of the year as this is an opportune time to get rid of excess mental baggage and clean out the emotional skeletons from your closets. Dig down deep and get to the heart of the matter and this will help bring forward the positive transformation you desire.
