Newsletter — ARIES 2013
Patience brings opportunity
A LIVING PRESENCE
I remain locked within the wings
Of my Beloved Master.
Held in the arms of Christ’s
Listening to His symphony of creation
Beholding the hidden wondrous vision.
Yet not oblivious to all of you
I watch your movements with a single eye.
I behold you with mothering tenderness
As you walk with life through the tall grass
Smelling the crimson rose with delight.
When the blush of love brings you pleasure
I feel you caressed with an enfolding breeze.
To relieve your worries and fears
You will be enwrapped in the sun’s warmth
When the chill of lonliness strays into your heart.
When you gaze at the ocean wave
You look into the eyes of God.
Unite with your Beloved on the altar
of the Horizon
Canopied with the silver rays of azure
Come into the warm, hazy sanctuary.
He shall not speak except through your reason,
Not scold except through your conscience.
Be persuaded through the power of your Love
And your heart’s longing to seek the Christ only
With the song of your Soul,
enjoy His Love alone.
Forget me watching if you will
But not my Beloved.
For in remembering Him – you cannot forget me!
—Elizabeth Joyce 3.21.94
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Spring Equinox Leads us to New Beginnings – Flowers, Pets, Easter and Spring.
The Sun has entered AIRES
Symbolized by the Ram, Aries initiates the energies following the Vernal Spring Equinox. Regardless of your personal Sun-sign, play the role of the pioneer and chieftain, the leader in unknown waters, as Aries represents. Imagine yourself to be a seed in the ground of Spring, sprouting as a dynamic vessel of life, reaching upward to absorb the powerful rays of the sun. Spontaneity, assertion, and a great love of adventure are natural expressions of Aries. However, steer clear of immaturity, selfishness, and reckless pursuits. Aries is the first of the three Fire Signs, with a flair for the dramatic, but fatigue and rushed energies can extinguish even the strongest flame. Remember that energy and persistence and a progressive spirit can unlock the magical creativity of your mind.
You sparkle and shine in the spotlight this month, Aries. Step out with confidence and pursue your dreams, Bright ideas and new directions are featured, but back up your sudden impulses with facts, and balance your spring optimism with reality. If in doubt, seek advice from a friend or professional.
A close relationship could reach a turning point at the Full Moon is Libra on March 27th. But a chance encounter at month’s end could spark a whirlwind romance or an instantaneous friendship with a soul mate as Venus in Aries connects you with intriguing people. Be cautious with investments and spending, and resist the pressure if you are asked for a loan or donation. All that will change at month’s end when you could earn a raise, bonus, or promotion, and/or receive a long-awaited payment or settlement.

ANIMAL: THE BUTTERFLY
In the morning light
You have known many forms
Before you e’er took flight.
The power that the butterfly brings us is akin to air. It is the mind, and the ability to know the mind or to change it. It is the art of transformation.
To use Butterfly medicine, you must astutely observe your position in the cycle of self-transformation. Like Butterfly, we are always at a certain stage of our soul growth and life activities. You may be at the egg stage, which is the beginning of all things. This is the stage in which an idea is born, but has not yet come into form. The larva stage is when you decide to create this idea and bring it into form in the physical world. The cocoon stage involves going within , doing or developing your project or idea, or changing an aspect of your personality. The final stage of transformation is leaving the chrysalis and emerging through birth. This last step involves sharing the colors and joy of your creation with the world.
If you look closely at what butterfly is trying to teach, you will realize that it is a never-ending cycle of self-transformation.
The way to determine where you are in this cycle is to ask yourself:
- Is this the egg stage? Is it just a thought or idea?
- Is this the larva stage? Do I need to make a decision?
- Is this the cocoon stage? Am I developing and doing something to make my idea a reality?
- Is this the birth stage? Am I sharing my complete idea?
By asking yourself these questions, you will discover how Butterfly is relating to you at this moment. When you understand where you are, the symbol can teach you what to do next to continue in your cycle of self-transformation. If you have found the position though which you are cycling, you will see the creativity of the Butterfly.
Using the air, or mental powers, of this medicine is done with ease. As an example, if you have been feeling exhausted and have asked how to heal your fatigue, take notice of the colors to which you have been drawn to lately. Does your body feel better in green? Could this mean that you need to eat more green vegetables, or improve your career skills to earn more money? This type of awareness is an inspiration from Butterfly medicine.
Butterfly can give clarity to your mental process and help you to organize the project you are undertaking, as well as assist you in finding the next step for your personal life or career. The main message to be obtained during the time of the Aries energies is that you are ready to undergo some type of transformation.
Allow the change to come. Butterfly represents courage, which is always needed to change your reality or complete any creativity process. It is a totally different world outside of the cocoon, where the known realities of the chrysalis no longer apply. Let go of the past and begin to spread your wings. The new world you have entered demands that you use your new-found wings and fly!

RUNE of the Month – Dagaz
Dagaz is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Self-Transformation. March will mark a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self-change, along with a complete transformation of attitude, 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.
If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion to your passage.
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.
