Change and new experiences feed my Soul,
I am empowered by my Inner Strength and Divine Helper.
We may never be remembered for doing great, great things in life,
but if we do all little things with Love,
we will never be forgotten by a few,
and will be remembered with warmth and a smile.
Oh great and mighty Jupiter,
Your blessings I do seek,
Your angels and guides send to me,
Good Spirits rich and sleek.
Good nature spirits and higher vibrations
Sent by God, whose comradeship I love.
For bounty, success, and good fellowship,
My thanks are sent above.
Spirits powerful and great
Your riches I share in fun
And friendship true,
Prosperity descends on me,
My thanks sent deeply to you.
And now my Light is shining bright,
Rich and green for all to see.
Good fortune is my Law of Life,
I give thanks – to the Universe!
And to Thee.
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered SAGITTARIUS
The sign of SAGITTARIUS is signified by the Archer or mythological Centaur and gives you cosmic relief after the ordeals of the intense Scorpio energies. An optimistic and enthusiastic demeanor sustains your one-pointed efforts and sparks a renewed sense of daring and adventure in the outside world. While your path can include sports, long-distance journeys, and philosophical inquiries, steer clear of the temptation to be a dilettante – an amateur in many fields but master of none. As you strive towards truth and wisdom, it is easy to see the universal picture but ignore practical details and then complain about hard work. The fires of this sagacious sign can entice you with illusions of greatness or turn your gaze towards clear, long-range aspirations. It is up to you to see each goal with precision, reach it, and be willing to go on to the next one.
Sagittarians have more energy than you know what to do with as the energy planets come together in your sign this month, Sag. You are full of inspiration and eagerness to act, with opportunities opening to match your ideas. Others are as excited as you are about your vision and things to come, and they are willing to lend their support. You can work on your impatience levels by using your great sense of humor to laugh at circumstances, as well as yourself. Otherwise, you could end up taking your frustrations out on others and dampening their enthusiasm for your plans. In your leadership role, it is up to you to do – to set the tone.
There promises to be no peace right up to the Christmas Holiday, if then. Because Mercury retrogrades on Dec. 12th through Jan. 1st, 2024, communication and travel may be very turbulent as well. During this time, be cautious, stay alert, and be very careful of whatever you put in writing – including your tweets!
RUNE of the Month – BREAKTHROUGH
BREAKTHROUGH (Dagaz)—Transformation Day
Victory. Awareness, Awakening, Growth and Release, Coming to Light from darkness, Embracing Cosmic Consciousness
Dagaz is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Self-Transformation. December 2023 will mark a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self-change, along with a complete transformation of attitude, a 180 degree turn. For some, this transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.
Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured, although not from the present vantage point, predictable. Rely now on inner trust, although the moment may call for you to leap, empty handed, into the void. Confront and vanquish your refusal to allow right action to flow through you. In each lifetime there comes a moment, when, if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. With this Rune—Breakthrough —your warrior nature reveals itself.
A major period of achievement and prosperity is introduced into your life with this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are put on notice to be mindful not to collapse yourself into the future or behave recklessly in your new situation. A lot of hard work can be involved in a time of such transformation. Undertake it—and do it joyfully.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

A gift of Turquoise represents friendship and luck. Enhances psychic perception. Helps with communication with your Blessed Higher Self and Spirit Guides.
You tricked me once more.
Must I sit and ponder
What you did it for?
There are thousands of myths and stories about the Coyote. Known as a great trickster, or the spiritual equivalent of the EGO, many Native American cultures call Coyote the “Medicine Dog”. With the Coyote as your Shaman Totem in December 2023 there is some kind of medicine on its way to you and it may not be to your liking! Whatever this medicine is, good or bad, you can be sure it will make you laugh, maybe even painfully. You can also be sure the Coyote will teach you a much needed lesson about your Ego and yourself.
Coyote has many magical powers, but they may not always work out in the best way, or in his favor. His own trickery fools him! He is the Master Trickster who winds up tricking himself. No one is more astonished than the Coyote at the outcome of his own tricks. He falls into his own trap. Somehow the Coyote manages to survive. He may be banged and bruised by the experience, but he soon goes on his way to even greater error, forgetting to learn from his mistakes. He may lose a battle, but Coyote is never beaten.
Coyote is sacred. In the folly of his acts we see our own foolishness. As Coyote moves from one disaster to the next, he refines the art of self-sabotage to sheer perfection. No one can blindly do themselves in with more grace and ease than this holy trickster. Coyote takes himself so seriously at times that he cannot see the obvious. For example, the steamroller that is about to run over him! That is why, when it hits him, he still cannot believe it. “Was that really a steamroller? I’d better go look,” he says. Then he is run over once more!
Contained within this trickster is the humor of the ages. The cosmic joke is not just on ourselves, but on everyone else if they are following the Coyote or have Coyote medicine as their Karma. Someone like this may be able to convince us that a skunk smells like roses, but a skunk is still a skunk! Snooze time is over in December 2023. It’s now time to face up to the coming world events and earth changes with awareness and preparation. Watch out! Your glass may crash to the ground at any moment. Your self-mirror may crash and you will have to face yourself! The divine trickster is dogging you, and you may trip. Coyote scratches under his arm. He does a crazy dance. He catches his tail on fire while playing with matches. He jumps in a fish pond when running from wasps and almost drowns. Coyote seduces a concrete statue. Coyote thinks he’s found a bone, when it is indeed a rattlesnake. Everyone watches this comic scene. Coyote is you, me, booby traps, jet airplanes with toilets that don’t flush, uncomfortable blind dates and all the humorous and whimsical things we encounter along life’s way. Get ready for more laughs! Lots more.
Go immediately beneath the surface of your experience. Ask yourself what you are really doing and why. Is Coyote your medicine? Are you playing jokes on yourself? Are you trying to fool an adversary? Is someone tricking you? Do you want to give the office “geek” the phone number of the beautiful new secretary? Do you want to pull a boner on your best friend? When was the last time you did something because it was crazy and fun?
On the other hand, you may not be conscious of your own pathway of foolishness. You may have conned yourself, your family, your friends, or even the public at large into believing that you know what you are doing. But listen, Coyote, you are balled up in your own manipulations. You have created a befuddling, bewildering, confounding trick. Pick up the juggler eyes from the ground and get them back into their sockets. See through the genius of your own self-sabotage. Find it amusing and laugh, trickster, laugh.
If you cannot laugh at your game and your own crazy antics you have lost the game of life. Coyote always comes calling when things get too serious. The medicine is laughter and joking so that new viewpoints can be absorbed into your belief system.
December 2023 is time for stodgy old fogies to lighten up and add cheer to a party, or break up a “death grip” conversation with ease. Look at the positive side of sabotaging nosey questions about your personal life. Have fun telling that gossiper you just returned from St. Barts in your new Lear Jet!
December 2023 is a time to watch the people who enter your life. You may attract an all-knowing teacher, a scam-artist, a get-rich-quick scheme, a door-to-door salesman, a femme fatal, a movie producer, a television evangelist, a politician or any other person who wants you to follow their lead. Coyote is not the recommended business partner or lover.
December 2023 may be a time when everything you do backfires. All your jokes may be exploding in your face. Coyote signals a time to be aware of the intentions of others, and look for that boomerang which you threw out to another person come back in and hit you from behind. Someone else’s trick may be on you or there could be deception in the wind. Whatever December 2023 conjures up, it could be coming from any direction. Remember, the joker is wild!
