• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:

    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

ARIES: The Eclipse is in your communication sector, signaling a time to ‘clean up’ the relationships close to hand. Who do you spend your hours with? How are they going? Check in, speak your mind and remember to listen as well. Hint: Consider the benefits of commitment!

TAURUS: Your 2nd house of resources, values and finances are activated, pushing your desire for material success. You want to amp up the comfort zone but first, revisit the way you value and appreciate yourself. Hint: Stabilize your day to day routine: exercise, food, rest, connections.

GEMINI: The drive for significance rises like a phoenix: brilliant, dazzling, colorful! Embrace your vivaciousness. It’s going to get your everywhere! Set BIG intentions. Sky’s the limit. A friend offers help or support that makes all the difference in the world! Hint: Get creative. Get moving. Get sassy!

CANCER: This eclipse is about your voice, the one that speaks for others. Where are you giving your heart to those in the dark, unable to state their needs? Compassion lifts you to a new level of being. Hint: Joy and fulfillment comes through creative expression and acts of kindness and nurturing.

LEO: Your 11th house of goals for the future is activated making this the perfect time to set strong intentions about what you want. Whatever makes you smile constitutes a worthy aim! When you express it to others, help comes out of the woodwork. Hint: To have a friend, be a friend. Communicate!

Allow your drive for significance to shine! Hint: Expect changes in the way you walk, talk and stake your claim!

LIBRA: Your 9th house super-conscious mind is awakened by this eclipse bringing more than a single epiphany. What you DO with the new awareness can be worked out later. For now, decide what is is you would like to know. Hint: Ask. It all begins with that simple act of inquisitiveness.

SCORPIO: The eclipse in Gemini is the most transformational of the year for you. It’s in your sector of shared values, energy and finances, making you aware of power and issues of control. Set intentions to balance and absolve. Hint: Imagination is everything. See it the way you want it to be.

SAGITTARIUS: Your personal, social, one-to-one relationships are lit up like neon. This could mean business partnerships or intimates. The common denominator is it matters a LOT right now. Set you mind to visualizing what you would like. Hint: Friendship honored above all else rocks your world.

CAPRICORN: The eclipse focus is on the body and how you listen to it, feed it, exercise it and take care of it. Yes, it’s like a racehorse. What kind of shape is yours in today? Hint: Your career and purpose in life will amplify when you set intentions around health, balance and wholesomeness.

AQUARIUS: Anything that is marked as ‘yours’ thrives under this eclipse. Set intentions now for creative expression, children, affections, friendships, recreation. Expansion is on the horizon. The bigger you think, the more you experience. Hint: Allow your inner child to have the holiday THEY dream of!

PISCES: Potent emotions form the backdrop of this eclipse. It’s a wonderful opportunity to know what you really feel about current issues. Set intentions around home, family, security and sanctuary of being. Note: Through sharing resources, burdens and joys, your life deepens, becomes more rich.
