Newsletter – AQUARIUS 2018
Knowledge is my pathway bringing freedom and success.
Now withdraw into the rose center of your heart. Meditate on the perfect rose. The rose of twelve petals lies at the temple of your heart. It's petals are opening to the sun - every petal gleaming and glowing with the light. There is an ineffable light in the heart of the rose.
Become enfolded within these petals, in a soft pearly light. You are within the temple of the rose, the Sun pours down into the heart—opening up the doorway to all empowering, unconditional Love. You are a part of this radiance and one with all of humanity, within the heart of the ROSE.
Allow the light from the Masters show how to live divinely and to rise above the dualities of this world and find peace within. Become a giver of peace and love to others. By dwelling on these higher energies and striving to emulate the qualities expressed, you will open your heart to absorb more deeply the Spirit manifested in all God-united souls. Let the strength that upholds the Universe filled your being filling you with everlasting love. Smell the fragrance emitting from the center of the rose and fill yourself up with the radiance of the Universe.
May God grant me Health, Protection, and Guidance.
The Sun has entered AQUARIUS
Aquarius, you are the Eleventh Sign of the Zodiac. After the establishment and structure of the energies of Capricorn, it is your job to make sure that these structures blend, mix and are flexible with the needs of the people they are meant to serve. In the Northern Hemisphere, yours is the month of the deepest part of winter, which can be most unrelenting. The cold, dry air crackles with electricity. Yet the light of Spring is returning, most perceptibly, along with signs of life, although subtle, which stirs our hopes that Spring will arrive soon. In the Western Zodiac yours is the sign of the Water Bearer, although his jugs were more likely to be filled with air, which is your element. In early Babylonian times your constellation was called the "Giant," suggesting a great being who knows all and sees all. You are likely to be aware of any political situation since you represent group dynamics. You may now value your role as a detached outsider, especially if you feel there is corruption with group leaders. However, you will be completely devoted to a group that fulfills its stated objectives - when the objectives are those you firmly believe in. Your beliefs generally center around the rights of individuals and the advancement of knowledge. You also tend to assert your own individuality, even if it means working against your own interests. (It is said that those with an Aquarian Moon are most cold and detached.) Your greatest shortcoming is an automatic reaction against any rules, even those that are for your true benefit. Above all, your strong freedom seeking instincts will force you to stand up for yourself as well as for the rights of others. Used wisely, this drive can serve both yourself and those you influence.
(This information goes for AQUARIUS Sun Sign – Moon Sign
as well as the Rising Sign.)

ANIMAL: THE LYNX — Secrets
You know the secrets
So very well,
The dreamtime and the magic,
But you never tell.
May I learn to hold my tongue,
And observe like the Sphinx,
Powerful, yet silent,
The medicine of the Lynx.
It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask the Lynx. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get the silent Lynx to speak. To be confronted by the powerful medicine of the Lynx signifies that you do not know something about yourself or others. (On a larger scale, it could reflect secrets of someone in politics, Hollywood, or someone else, or the government coming out into the open to correct some fake news.)
Lynx is the keeper of secrets of lost magical systems and of occult knowledge. Lynx has the ability to move through time and space, and go into the Great Silence for knowledge to unravel any mystery. Lynx is not the guardian of secrets but, instead, the knower of secrets. The problem lies in getting the Lynx to choose to instruct you. He or she would rather be off chasing a bird or kicking sand in your face rather then running an instruction class or running circles around you.
Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance. If this medicine is strong in you, you will receive mental pictures concerning other people and the exact things they have hidden, either from themselves, from others, or from you. You will see their fears, their lies, or their self-deception, (or Ego.) You will also know where they have the hidden treasure, or if there is any. You never speak of these revelations or of how you know of them - you just know!
The only way you can coax information about yourself from the Lynx medicine person, (in case you have forgotten where you hid the treasure), is to respect the practices of his or her traditions, and honor the knowledge given. If you go to a Gypsy with Lynx medicine (knowledge), you must pay respect by giving them money for the reading. If you go to a Choctaw medicine person, he or she will reach into your mid-section, or use other traditional methods to help you. A blanket or tobacco should be given in exchange for the medicine they have performed for you. This operative is known as the law of the Lynx people, or an equal exchange of energy, to create a lasting balance, and is practiced by Native American, Gypsy, Sufi, Hindu, and Egyptian cultures, among others.
The Lynx medicine permeates the month of February 2018, and you can be sure that secrets are afloat. This is the time to meditate and listen to your higher self. Be still and pay attention to the messages your receive either in the form of mental pictures of singing, or perhaps by whispering into your ear. You could receive this information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth will be signalling you in some manner.
When Lynx shows up at your door, listen up! Brother or Sister Lynx can teach you of your special personal power and many things you have forgotten about yourself. Lynx can lead you to lost treasures, and lead you to forgotten brotherhoods or sisterhoods.
Some people believe that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt was not a Lion but a Lynx. This Lynx does not speak very much; rather, with an enigmatic smile, the great cat watches over the sands of forever.

RUNE of the Month - Joy — Wunjo
Wunjo is the Rune of the fruit bearing branch and quite appropriate as we enter the month of February, with the ice and snow falling, cleansing the Earth to prepare for Spring, which brings us new growth and new beginnings. With the beginning of a new energy, the term of travail is ended and you have come in to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive its blessings, whether they be in material gain, your emotional life or in a heightened sense of your own well-being. This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition. Now you can rejoice at having been carried across the gap by the Tao, the Holy Spirit.
Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy that was blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths. The Soul is illuminated from within at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.
There is a new clarity, which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely that you submit, for Wunjo is a Rune of restoration, causing the Self to become properly aligned with the Blessed Higher Self where you will enter into the "State of Being."
Things may be slow in coming to fruition. The process of birth is long and arduous with fears for the safety of the child within. A crisis, a difficult passage, if ever so brief, may be at hand. Consideration and deliberation are called for, because light and shadow still exist and are intermixed, so doubt and sarcasim may interfere with joyousness if this period is not understood as a timely process for your Soul growth. Stop your anxiety and ask yourself whether you possess the virtues of seriousness, sincerity, and emptiness. To possess these virtues is to also have tranquility, which is the path to clarity, patience, and perserverance.
Seen in the light of truth, the pathway of life is a test. Stay focused in the present, remaining sincere towards others, trusting your process, and you will know that you cannot fail.
This has always been the section for Healing Requests. Through the power of group prayers, healing take place spontaneously. You can be of help to many others, as well as your loved ones, with one minute of silence at 7:30 pm EST every Sunday evening anywhere in the world. With a prayer for the recovery of health, universal energy is sent out to any and all who send in their prayer request. What is needed is the name and birth date of the ill person, along with a diagnosis, if possible. What are you asking to be lifted? When you place your request in the Healing Circle of Light—located in our Prayer Room, – know that as soon as you make your Prayer request and Healing request – you will begin to see positive results!
(We have had thousands of responses. Keep the Prayers going for all concerned!)
