Elizabeth's Journal

During the last few years as the energies have ramped up many things have changed in and around us and as a result, our goals, dreams and priorities have as well. I’ve personally experienced this, as many of you alreaedy know,  and as a result have been in the midst of a significant transition. (More below as I share what’s been going on with me during this transition.)

One thing is clear … we are in the process of crossing new thresholds!
Send love and light to each of you,


Update as of September 28th, 2023
I’m now approaching the one-year anniversary of my move across two states, and it’s becoming quite clear I’ve entered a new phase of this transition…one that will have a big impact on my work. 

About the next phase …

Now that the physical, tangible things like settling into a new state, new house, new community. etc. is in the rear view mirror (well, mostly) I’ve noticed shifts taking place on the inner…those of a more spiritual nature.  These new realizations and insights are happening at a rather accelerated pace, as I’m sure many of you are experiencing as well.

The new insights and energies are starting to impact my work as well. After 4 decades I feel I am now entering the “final” (gee…that sounds so, well, final : ) phase of my work. I have many ideas about what I may/could do…way more than I could ever accomplish.

So I find the question ever-present in my mind is: “what is mine to do … what does my Soul want me to do now.” Some things I’ve given a lot of consideration to is new courses, a series of ebooks, a blog (I know…I’ve been talking about that one for a while now) and more. The other thing is I will continue readings for the foreseeable furture (I’ve just completed the “summer cycle” and will be doing the next one early in the year.)

As I consider what is next, I am open to your input as well (email below). I would like to add that your donations are very much appreciated during this time of transition in my work, as it means that my income is also impacted. (Feel free to email with your ideas, comments or questions.)

SO…thank you so much for your support and generosity!

UPDATE as of July 26 2023

I thought, or at least was hoping, that once I got somewhat settled I’d be ready to jump right into the to-do/backlog list. But alas I’ve spent a good bit of time just staring … doing nothing. Well that’s not exactly true…I have created a very thorough to-do list (it’s 4 pages long…sigh). And taken care of things like getting a WA driver’s license and my car registered and new insurance and also had to get this DDS thing done (3 appointments and a good amount of $$$ later I finally took care of a 2 year dental issue but that’s another story.)

So I have been doing stuff but not the things I thought I would. I just wasn’t into it (I should add I have been doing readings and loving each and every one). Upon reflection I have come to realize that it was ok that I didn’t push  myself and rush into “The List”, given the ultra busy-ness of the last 12-18 months. So I decided to cut myself some slack and decided I would take time to have some fun and explore my new home town and be a tourist for a few afternoons a week. And it seemed to be just what I needed as now I’m starting to feel, well, at home which is worth more than some lines through items on a to-do list. No doubt it’ll take a while to really feel at home but the seeds have definitely been planted and now, finally, I feel I can s-t-o-p. Huge. I mean I’ve been seeking/searching for a long time, waiting (patiently and sometimes not so patiently) for when I could say that word and mean it (the home word). I can breathe out, as a friend recently put it.

And then I came to see something else…that in this new stage of The Adventure, because that really is what it is after all, I’ve started to realize that while I was doing all the above, or not-doing some of it (the “list”),  a whole lot has been taking place underground, within. And I daresay will be so for some time.

Once this came to my attention a few weeks ago, I began to turn my awareness to this internal activity and in so doing have realized just how much this whole experience is impacting my heart and my Soul. Something at my core is shifting…opening….and resting (such an intriguing combination). And in all this I can see why I’ve been staring out the window a lot of late. I’ve no doubt there’s a lot more to this and a lot to come. But it is clear that seeds have been planted…and I’ll be here to see the harvest because I’m not going anywhere. I’m beginning to see that stopping is a powerful force.

It’ll be so interesting to see what is growing below ground in the garden for I really don’t know. But I’m not feeling in any hurry to find out as I know there’s time as I know I’m planting in the right place, internally and externally. Now it’s just a matter of tending to the garden.
NOTE: This being such a dynamic time I’ve added a new reading targeting the remainder of 2023 with a peak into early 2024. Thresholds are before all of us and in this reading we will look at what yours might be as revealed in your chart plus do a Tarot reading I’ve created just for this 5-6 months. Learn more here.

UPDATE as of June 21st, 2023
I’ve come to realize that this new phase I’m in, largely as a result of moving to Port Townsend, isn’t really an arrival but rather an ongoing journey as so many aspects of my “new life” are still shifting and unfolding…and I have the sense that this is my new normal for some time. 

In some significant ways I have “settled” in to my new home and surroundings and it’s becoming quite clear that I’m embarking upon yet another whole new phase or chapter. This transition has come about quite organically as it wasn’t quite intentional of foreseen, though it’s actually not really a surprise. It feels like I’m treading into new ground. However…there are quite a few things that need to happen in the weeks and even months to come along side all the new stuff that is also coming in fast and furious.

In order to make this huge move (leap!) happen I had to put a lot of things on the back burner…biz of life stuff, personal interests, self care, spiritual pursuits, computer stuff (which is a mess!) and several others. 

And perhaps as important as any of the above is my work … and now I find myself asking: Where is it going next? Which of my many projects, ideas, offerings, etc. do I pursue? What is calling me? So many things are now possible and all of them are clamoring for my time, energy and attention, like hungry birds in a next. (I actually had a bird build a nest on my tiny porch which soon housed some very hungry youngins, tweeting morning, noon and night. The messages were everywhere! lol…

It’s really become clear that I need to do some significant reprioritizing of my time and energy and focus on “The List(s)” and believe me it’s long. However, I feel up to the task as I know this will all lead to a new “way of being in my life.” I recently heard this quote that really resonated with me (tho I changed it a bit): “I was free to expand into the space of my own life.” It’s time to do those things that are calling me…some mundane but necessary and some exciting and expansive.

And so I’ve decided to take the summer off from doing the Star Beacon as it takes me almost a week to create and well, it’s clear I need that time for all the other stuff. I’m still not sure if I’ll be doing it in the fall…stay tuned.

All said I am feeling “called” to do readings during this time.  People are really feeling the acceleration of energies and expanding in their own lives in amazing ways and to share what the stars and cards are saying is both exciting to me and an honor as well. This is a time like no other and the insights and messages that have come through the readings I’ve done this year are like nothing I’ve experienced before. Hence I’ll be doing readings in July, August and September.

In addition I have so many things I want to do work wise in the months and even years ahead and I’m excited about spending time exploring these. In addition one of the things I’ll be focusing on the months ahead is creating new types of readings. I’m very excited about this and of course will be sharing more later. You can check out my readings here.

UPDATE as of May 20th, 2023
Let’s see…where to start. The move into my cottage went well…though took longer than expected. But finally feeling settled at least for the foreseeable future which is a big relief! Now that the “big move” is showing up in the rear view mirror I’m just starting to get glimmers of what’s on the horizon. It feel something like the hour or so before dawn as the day breaks. Lots of possibilities are starting to emerge. I’m curious to see where things go in the weeks and months ahead.

Spring here is worth the long winter. I can feel new life bursting all around me. There’s a feeling of renewal and rejuvenation in the air which is also being expressed through the astrological events taking place! Jupiter now in Taurus enhances everything, and that includes nature in all its glory…it clearly loves to help things grow and thrive.

This is true for each of us as well (which I discuss on this month’s Star Beacon which just got posted). Jupiter in Taurus is encouraging us to tend to the things we care about and love for that is where the life force is strongest for each of us. As for me this includes my work which I plan to be focusing on in the weeks and months ahead.

Sending lots of love and light to each of you,

UPDATE as of April 20, 2023

A lot has happened in the last few weeks! First I spent a few days in the Seattle area and realized there was no way I could live in the congestion, noise and fast-paced style of living. So I came back to Port Townsend and started wondering “Okay…now what?!” I turned it all over to Spirit as I knew that something was brewing and within three days I found a place to rent for 6 to 12 months (which is in itself a small miracle in this very tight market). And now I’m in the process of moving (again) but this time it’s a lot more involved as I’m finally going to get some things out of storage since the place is empty. After all this time of being in vaca rentals it’ll be so nice to have some of my own things around me!

It’s an adorable little cottage, “little” being the operative work here. I mean like 560 square feet! So the adventure of really changing things up continues (my last house was 1800 sq. ft. and the one before it 2600 sf!) But I’m super excited about it as it’s sunny and clean and the owners who live next door are awesome and it’s only 3 minutes from the church I go to AND about 7 minutes from my favorite beach. 

I’ve been busy moving and unpacking and (finally) getting settled and simply haven’t had time to get the Taurus Beacon done. Once I’m settled in one of the first things I have planned is to do a business regroup, if you will, to see where my work is ready to go to next (I have several things in mind). One thing I’m feeling called to do is more readings as there have been so many astrological shifts of late. I keep hearing from clients and friends how much movement and change is happening in their lives. And indeed with Pluto and Saturn both changing signs new areas of our charts, and lives, are being impacted in new and significant ways. I’ll be sending out more about my readings in the weeks ahead but if you’d like to be sure to get that information send me an email at elizabeth@starpathways.com.

I feel that Spirit is moving in my life in ways I couldn’t have seen even a few weeks ago and that new and exciting things are on the horizon. Stay tuned…

Sending blessings and light,

UPDATE as of March 23rd, 2023

I want to start by saying the Star Beacon (did you notice I shortened the name?) this month was a very interesting (and rather intense) one for me to do as it really became clear that we’re embarking on a new phase of the planetary transitions taking place and which will continue to be so through the year. Things are really ramping up as a new cycle is being ushered in…one that feels different in more than a few ways (I go into this on the PDF).  By the way I’ve been feeling that something was coming since the beginning of the year…I daresay many of you have too?

Things just keep moving around, including me. I’ve been in this gorgeous renovated Victorian for a few weeks and well, am moving yet again in another week or so, where I’ll be returning to the beautiful home I spent 2 1/2 months in over the winter. But it’s looking like playing musical houses may be coming to an end in a month or so!

Change is in the air…again.  Stay tuned…

Thank you for your donaiton.

UPDATE as of March 5th, 2023

Gee…not sure what to say about not getting a Beacon out this month except that things have been rather crazy. Moved again from one VRBO to another (both super nice in different ways but still disruptive). Took a while to get resettled…then had to get my taxes done (ugh but mission accomplished : )  …also been busy doing readings (which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed). All said I just didn’t have time to do the Beacon for Pisces this month. {{ Several of you have sent emails checking in and asking if things are ok. 💜  }} 

>Perhaps you’ve noticed an acceleration of energies? Indeed this is a very dynamic month (I’ll be including some of the events taking place this month in next months’ Beacon.)  Well there’s more to come later this month especially around the equinox. So be on the lookout for the Aries Beacon in the 3rd week of the month!

Blessings to each of you! ~Elizabeth
P.S. I have a few openings for readings in April. Email me if you’re interested.

UPDATE as of February 4, 2023

Overall things are so much better though there are still a few things to get sorted out. But the Aquarian energies that are so prevalent now have definitely supported me in moving into a new phase. The Full Moon tomorrow (2/5) is very much about just this … supporting our personal growth and expansion, bringing opportunities to share and receive our Light with others and to trust the Universe in the process. I’m feeling ready in a way I haven’t before to embrace the amazing energies streaming forth now! It feels quite magical, as though there are cosmic sparks flying around that give vitality to our dreams, new projects/ventures and help guide us and reveal our next Soul path. Perhaps you’re sensing that there is some kind of magic in the air ready to support you in ways you may not have felt before?

One more thing…Uranus is a key player in the Full Moon so pay attention for the next 14 days to synchronicities, coincidences and information that comes from unusual sources as these are ways unpredictable Uranus brings us messages, insights and innovative ideas. (More on this on Aquarius Beacon.)

Sending light-filled blessings to each of you,

UPDATE as of January 23, 2023

Well this hasn’t been a fun start to the New Year! I was all gung ho to set out on a new path, which included starting a blog,  and then “IT” happened: I became the victim of fraud and basically got scammed out of $4500! I fell hook, line and sinker for the whole thing. I mean these guys are very convincing at what they do. After stopping my life for 2 days I finally came to my senses and woke up to what the heck was going on.

I’m going to share a short version of what happened because I feel it’s so important to get this information out there…

I clicked on a link and this big, scary-looking “announcement” popped up saying my computer had been hacked and my id compromised and that I needed to call “Apple” immediately. It was pretty shocking to say the least and if I had kept my cool I’m pretty sure I would’ve realized that if I’d just closed the window nothing that ensued would’ve happened. Live and learn…

I DID call the bogus “Apple” number and he went on about how my computer was hacked (it wasn’t) and that someone from some gambling and porn site in Russia had gained access to my banking information (they didn’t) and that I needed to call (please read this carefully – >) the number on the back of my debit card immediately! So I hung up and called the number on the back of my card and a guy got on the phone and said he was from the bank fraud department. He said that hackers in Russia gained approval for 2 rather large amounts at 6:30 that morning (I was sleeping). He said it was approved by some automatic system (“Press 1 if you approve this transaction” kind of thing) and that the money would be funded (leave my account) within three hours but that if took certain steps we could stop it. Well those “certain steps” took me down a rabbit hole that took me 36 hours to climb out of.

The steps involved taking money out of my account and buying gift cards and then giving him the access codes. That’s the simple version…it was a bit more elaborate than that. I came to find out this “gift card” scam is VERY prevalent these days. A few other things he said: “The U.S. Treasury has been contacted and all your other accounts and credit cards have been frozen…The FBI has been notified and has informed us to tell you NOT TO TALK TO ANYONE (which admittedly left me feeling very much alone and vulnerable) until they know who may be involved as someone/anyone could have given my information to “the hackers”–bank tellers as an example. Even friends and family! He then stated that the “FBI” will be conducted an investigation. Yikes. 

All this took place in the 1st 30 or so minutes. He gave me some instructions to follow, which I did (I hate to say this but he was very nice, well not really of course, but he took time to calm me down and reassure me that “they” wouldn’t get my $$, etc. I just needed to do this and that…which I did until my big wake-up moment which happened late at night on the 2nd day.

Once I did it was crystal clear what was going on and indeed realized that the Universe was giving me clues all along and some big ones at that (I could write several pages on that one). The next morning, when I had been given a whole set of things to do to “secure the $”, I simply stopped responding to his texts and calls.

But the enormity and impact of all this wasn’t over…not by a long shot.

I still wasn’t sure if they had actually breached my personal information or my computer. And so the phone calls began to my bank(s), credit card companies, Apple fraud line, Social Security etc. I had to close all my accounts-checking, savings, credit cards, etc. Plus this was on a Saturday and that did NOT make it easy. I have several things to share about all this, which I will do below. Things I wish I knew before all this happened. But I’d guess that in the last 10 days or so I’ve spent somewhere about 40 hours on the phone (much of it on hold) to sort all this out. There have been many emotional moments along the way…  

I could go on but am glad you’ve read this far as I want to share some things hoping that if this happen to you or someone you know, God forbid, you might be better prepared to deal with it than I was:

  1. Let me start with that thing about calling the phone on the back of my debit card. Evidently if I had waited a while…say 15 minutes, the link to reroute my call or if I’d just turned my phone off and then on again it would’ve broken the link and I would’ve actually gotten through to my bank. By the way one of the things Apple support suggested I do was set my phone back to factory settings. Ugh. Quite a hassle.
  2. As soon as someone on the other end of the phone says “don’t talk to anyone” hang up. Period. I mean-really? Why I didn’t get it then is beyond me. Well not really…let me go back to the part about the FBI getting involved. Like I said…he knew all the right things to say.
  3. Listen to not only your intuition but your instincts! Once I realized what was going on I could not believe the relief I felt…clearly I was holding tension in my body that I wasn’t even aware of. 
  4. IF you ever do get in such a situation (fraud or real) *pray … a lot* asking for guidance and protection. I called on Arch Angel Michael the Divine Protector! (An interesting thing about that…an hour or so before all this started I pulled a card from one of my decks and got AA Michael : ) In retrospect I feel he was with me all along). I feel very strongly that all this could’ve been so much worse IF I hadn’t stayed as best I could connected with my Spirit Allies.
  5. A few comments about things I’d wish I’d done beforehand (and will do going forward): 
    1. I had a heck of a time getting the fraud phone #s for my banks online. I mean it to me 30 minutes and several attempts to get one of them! I now have a list of all those phone numbers handy.
    2. Same goes for my bank accounts (checking and savings) and my credit cards AND the passwords. Yes some of these were handy but not all and not in one place. 
    3. Keep notes of everything! Pre and post such an experience. I did but sure wish they were more complete. Like I mentioned I’ve spent many hours on the phone and talked to many, many people…no way to keep all that in my head!
    4. I’m sure there are other things which I may add here as I go through this process…I’ll make mention of it if I do in future updates when I do.

There is some good news: My computer was never hacked, THANK GOD!! AND the owner of the house I’m currently staying in is giving me two weeks FREE to help with the $$ and time I’ve lost. (I was pretty blown away and so very grateful for that!) 

Sending you blessings and lots and lots of LIGHT!



UPDATE  a/o December 21 2022

I’ve been here exactly two months now and they have been pretty, darn interesting. I’ve moved (again) since last month and though that’s a tedious process I really LOVE the place I’m in now…I may never leave. That said since it’s a VRBO, well, I’ll have to in a few weeks. Where to next? No idea. Such are the way of adventures!

We got a good bit of snow overnight…more than “normal” for this neck of the woods. Especially this early. Thank good for those many years I lived in Mt. Shasta where you simply have to find your way around a snow shovel and learn how to drive on snow-covered roads! All said things are good. Still unsettled, but good.

Happy Solstice everyone!

Your heart-donations are truly appreciated!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
So after a few weeks of being here I can say I have zero regrets in making this big move, even though it sent huge ripples through many areas of my life! That said it hasn’t gone without its challenges. The days are shorter and the weather colder than central California but there have been many beautiful days for exploring my new surroundings. The community here has been wonderfully welcoming and there are lots of ways to celebrate the Season of Light in the weeks to come which I’m very much looking forward to.

I would be amiss if I didn’t mention that yes, I feel quite unsettled! I heard that would be so in meditation several months so I wasn’t really caught off guard. However knowing something and living it can be quite different. I’ve resolved myself to the only way to deal with this is to just accept it will be so for the foreseeable future…at least as well as I can. I will add that I am very much looking forward to what the New Year holds but for now I’m taking what comes and enjoying the small things, of which there are many!

As I write this it is a few days from Thanksgiving and so I want to let you know how very grateful I am for your support, emails and donations. I appreciate each and every one of you!

More coming soon!
Sending you many blessings during this Season of Light and as we turn the page to 2023,

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
PREVIOUSLY…Just in case you haven’t heard the story of what lead me here:
I’ve lived in the same town for a decade and yet it has never really felt like home. And so the search began a few years ago for my “home” and in the process I considered several places, even a couple of other countries!

A few years ago the Pacific Northwest landed on my radar so strongly that last fall I decided I would go check it out in spring…which I did. And I fell in love with the whole area and especially with the Olympic Peninsula. I’ve craved living near the ocean for decades which this certainly fulfills…but there are many things, some tangible and some intangible, that made me realize this was it. I’d finally found my spot on the planet!

When I came home I started plotting and planning my course north with my goal being to move this fall.

Now the fun part begins (actually the hard part but it’s kind of fun too) as I need to do sooo much to make this happen (downsize, get my house ready to sell, pack, find a place up there and many other things as well). Oh…and keep my business going. All while trusting that what is on the other side will support me in ways I can’t even fathom now.

Well it became clear that I would have to eliminate anything that wasn’t essential to answering this call in the coming months which is exactly what this is for it was clear that I was/am being called there. I could tell you many stories of how I’ve been led to this new life and dream destination. I mean…the signs and messages have been most abundant. UPDATE: Things are happening faster than I’d planned! I guess when we say “YES!” and mean it the Universe says: “Well ok then…let’s do this!” Whew! However while some things are moving along quickly some are taking the roller coaster route…up and down seem to be the part of the path I’m on these days (as of late August). My home was quickly in escrow…things were going along just fine and them wham! the buyer canceled the contract and now I’m in “step back and take a breather” mode. It has certainly been a lesson in trusting the Universe and having faith!

One thing I’ve became clear about is that in order to make this all happen I had to make this huge move my main priority and in doing so I got qite clear about my own limits and this includes monitoring my time and my capacity to devote to my work.

So back to doing the Beacon…
As many of you know I stopped doing Monthly Beacon last summer. Then I decided I’d offer this information every three months and so the Quarterly Beacon came into being. However…doing QB is actually quite time-consuming and a lot of work. Plus looking ahead 3 months in these accelerated times just didn’t quite feel right. I mean things change so fast these days! And so, given my recent time constraints, I realized I need to let QB go.

However with so much going on in the World I felt quite strongly about continuing to get Astrological and Tarot insights and information out there to support you (and others) in better understanding and navigating the times we’re in.

So after some consideration here’s what I’ve came up with…
First, I have gone back to doing the Beacon on a monthly basis, which I’m calling “Star Pathways Beacon” (SPW Beacon). But with a few changes from previous offerings.

Second, and the biggest difference from the past, is that SPW Beacon is being offered on a donatation basis. Navigating this time without a steady income is tricky so please know that your donation of any size is greatly appreciated!

What’s on the new Beacon:
*Included on SPW Beacon is a 3-page PDF with information and insights for what is going on during the month including a message, New Moon/Full Moon info, Key Days, the spiritual focus. And lots of insights as to how to attune to the higher frequencies available.

*PLUS I do one or two Tarot readings for this time, available in audio format, which you can listen to on the website and/or download.

Looking ahead: What’s next for my work…
There’s something else that I’d like to share about this major life transition I’m in about the future of my work. I’ve been doing this for 4+ decades and during this time my work has gone through many phases. I feel that this move is positioning me for the final phase of my work…perhaps it could be called “The Legacy Phase”. (One of the ways I knew the Olympic Peninsula was the right place for me is that I somehow knew I’d be doing this phase of my life work there.)

Further, and perhaps most important, I have been getting for some time that as we approach 2025, a critical year in the transition to the New Age, the focus of my work is also changing to include offerings/writing that resonate with these powerful energies coming in. I’m very excited to see where all this is going!

My prayer and hope is that you, too, are feeling and able to respond to the call of your Soul for it is from this place that we will all be able to best serve the planet as well as personally navigate the intense and life-changing nature of the extraordinary times we are in.

Love and light,


Thank you so much for your support and generosity.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a one-time donation and NOT a recurring one.
