Ilaria is a self-taught Tarot and Oracle reader. After years of timid curiosity she started a regular practice of studying and journaling, leading to many readings for family and friends. Seeing how her small circle of “querents” kept growing, she finally decided to approach it professionally and joined the Centre’s team.
Ilaria firmly believes that all the answers lie within us but sometimes it can be hard to see them, and we need tools to help us. Like a mirror held in front of us, Tarot can be that tool.
Witches, Spirits and Spells of Scotland
by Ewan Irvine
Ewan Irvine is a psychic and spiritual medium, tutor and speaker based in Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. In this book, he recounts tales of witches, spirits and spells which are part of the country’s myths and legends, handed down from generation to generation.
Tales such as those of the Lady of Lawers, The Great Borders Wizard, The Scots Rhymer and the fearsome Agnes Finnie, said to be the busiest witch of all time, have stood the test of time and could be claimed to be embedded deep into Scotland’s dark oral history, which even goes so far as to claim that one day the Devil may just return to Scotland to finish his sermon.

Email us on email@example.com if you would like your story to be published in the next Newsletter. We will publish the stories anonymously unless you tell us you would like to add your name.
Centre Happenings and Insights
most times indifferent
to things around him
they waken feelings –
the first winds of autumn
The celestial scales are readjusting the balance of the Sun and the Moon, allowing more presence to the latter. The Solar principle, our identity and sense of purpose, is toned down while the Lunar energy comes forward. The Moon represents our feeling nature, our subconscious and the instinctive responses. Therefore, it feels natural that Autumn and Winter are offering us a time of reflection and an opportunity to retreat into our inner world. This journey will last until March next year, when the Spring Equinox will signal the moment of Solar and Lunar equality.
Right now the portal to the Moon’s realm is open. Emotions that seemed to evaporate with the help of Sun’s warm rays are coming back to us once again. Like the raindrops repeating the same water cycle, our emotions circulate across time and space. If we allow the personal alchemy to take place and trust the process, we will emerge from the period of darkness transformed and ready for new possibilities.
On 2nd October Mercury ends it three-week long retrograde journey. The first week when Mercury is direct again (2nd- 9th October) can feel a bit slow when it comes to communication, technology and travel. As Mercury is picking up its speed again it is advised to stay patient. On 11th October Mercury enters the sign of Libra, shifting the focus onto diplomacy, tact and compromise.
The Full Moon in Aries on 9th October will activate themes of cooperation, will and individuality. Moon in Aries can bring out passionate emotions while the Sun in Libra does its best to keep the situation civilised and neat. Old hurts in love and relationships can be brought up as the Full Moon is conjunct Chiron. As Full Moons represent a peak of the lunar cycle, expect heated arguments or intense expressions of self-assertion. Mars is slowing down in preparation of its retrograde motion at the end of the month so our energy and drive might feel suppressed. This Full Moon can act as a vent for the accumulating frustration. Release trapped emotions but don’t take it too far.
