Chinese Astrology—Year of the Wood Dragon – Feb. 10th 2024
I am carefree and a risk-taker; I honor and love my uniqueness.
The Life That Makes All Things New
As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.
If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in, you will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, “God is very good to me.” You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.
This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days – and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase in you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.
Think of Ammachi, and meditate on the orange golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, as is Amma, always! The petals of this divine rose are slowly opening as you chant your mantras to Amma, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a Light within the heart as well music coming to you from the rose. The Light from above and the Light from the rose blend as one…as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.

The Sun has entered the sign of 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 can be very 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.

Sing Frog, sing
Call in the rains,
Quench the dryness,
Cleanse the Earth,
Then — Fill me up again.
Frog sings the songs that bring the rain and make the road dirt more bearable. Frog medicine is akin to water energy, and the East on the medicine wheel. Frog teaches us to honor our tears, for they cleanse the soul. All water rites belong to Frog, including the initiations by water.
Water prepares and cleanses the body for sacred ceremony. It is the element we understand best in the womb. Frog, like ourselves, is a pollywog in the fetal waters, and only learns to hop after it experiences the world of fluidity.
The transformation into adulthood prepares Frog for its power to call in waters of the skies: the rain. In knowing the element of water, Frog can sing the song that calls the rain to the Earth. When the ponds are dry, Frog calls upon the Thunder Beings to cleanse and replenish the Earth with water. Like Frog, we are asked to know when it is time to refresh, purify, and refill the coffers of the soul.
Frog has hopped into the vibrations of February 2024, and its “ribet” may be calling in the cleansing you need. If you were to look at where you are today, would you use any of the following words to describe your condition: tired, overloaded, frustrated, harried, guilty, itchy, nervous, at a loss, empty, or weakened? If so take a break and allow yourself to bathe in the waters of Frog medicine. This could mean a long relaxing bath, disconnecting the phone, yelling “stop” or simply taking three deep, cleansing breaths.
The key though is to find a way to rid yourself of distractions and to replace the mud with clear energy. Then replenish your parched spirit, body, and mind. An ability of Frog medicine people is to give support and energy where it is needed. A Frog medicine person can clean and clear any negativity from any environment. Many mediums or clairvoyants who work with “cleaning” haunted houses, carry Frog medicine. Many of the worlds “seers” use water on their hands when tapping into the other realms of reality due to water’s super-conductive nature.
In Myan and Aztec shamanistic practices, the Shaman places water in his or her mouth and sprays it over the body of a patient to clear away any negative energy. This is done while holding the thought of Frog firmly in the mind so that healing may occur and the patient may be replenished with positive energy. Sometimes dried and stuffed frogs are also used to guard the person’s body during the session.
Frog speaks of new life and harmony through its rain song. The deep tones of frog’s “ribet” are said to be a call to the Thunder Beings; thunder, lightening, and rain. The “ribet” is the heartbeat that comes into harmony with Father Sky and calls for the replenishment needed. Call to Frog and find the peace and joy of taking time to give to yourself. A part of this giving is cleansing yourself of any person, place, or thing that does not contribute to your new state of serenity and replenishment.

RUNE of the Month—Laguz
Water – Sea – Fertility
That Which Conducts
The water of life flows
carving secret pathways
through the world
The urge toward unconsciousness, toward the past and immersion in the flow of feeling, toward the Mother, the womb’s security – all of this is inherent within the Laguz rune. Unseen powers are active here. The creative and fertile powers of nature. The attributes of Laguz are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, careers and relationships. It fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, the lunar side of our nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.
This Rune of the Flow signifies a time for cleansing, for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of knowing and psychic power, it may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for deep self-transformation. For a man, success now lies in contacting his intuitive knowing; for a woman, in attuning to her own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Higher-Self, it signifies what the alchemists called the conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.
