Aries, Aim before you fire! Please!



Feel Blessed When You’re Feeling Good – and Be Graceful When You’re Feeling Bad

The happiest people on earth are not always happy. In fact, they all have their share of problems, low moods, disappointment and heartaches. Often the difference between a person who is relatively happy and one who is unhappy isn’t how often they have low moods, but instead it’s what they do about these low moods. Their reactions to the disappointments and let downs in life is what counts. How do they relate and respond during these fluctuating mood changes?

Most people have this backwards. When they are feeling blue, they may roll up their sleeves and go to work, or throw themselves into a project to feel busy. They take these low moods quite seriously and try to figure out what’s wrong and analyze it all. They may try to force themselves out of this low state, which will tend to compound the problem rather than relieve it or solve it.

When you observe peaceful, relaxed people, you find they are feeling good and that they are grateful. They understand that both positive and negative feelings come and go, and that there will come a time when they won’t be feeling so good. To happy people, this is ok, and it’s the way of the flow of polarities of this planet we live on. They accept the inevitability of passive feelings. So, when they are feeling depressed, angry, or stressed out, they relate to those feelings with openness and wisdom. They don’t fight their feelings and panic simply because they are feeling bad. They accept these feelings as a part of life, and know the mood will soon pass. Rather than stumbling, fighting or feeling bitter about their negative feelings, they are graceful, allow them, and feel okay with grieving or airing their frustrations. This allows people to come gently and gracefully out of these negative feelings into strength and a positive state of being. Some of the happiest people I know get into a state of low feelings from time to time. The difference here is that they are comfortable with these low moods, and understand them. It doesn’t seem to throw them off too much because they know that in time, they will be happy again. Then it all becomes “no big deal”.

The next time you’re feeling bad, rather than fighting it, try to meditate. See if, instead of panicking, you can be graceful and calm. Know that if you don’t fight these negative feelings, if you can remain centered and graceful, they will pass away as surely as the sun sets in the evening.

Meditate on the yellow daffodils, one of the first flowers of Spring. You are looking at this flower from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart always! The petals of the Daisy are slowly opening as you chant your mantras or say your prayers, 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 Daffodil, the flower of Light. The light from above and the light from the Daffodil blend as one…as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.

The Sun has entered ARIES

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, 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 New Moon in Aries on March 30th. A chance encounter at month’s end could spark a whirlwind romance or an instantaneous friendship with a Soul Mate as Venus 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.

Based on the Rune (Journey) and Animal (Buffalo), April 2014 brings a time of more violent weather conditions, with thunder storms and tornadoes.

Prayer and Abundance

Buffalo, you bring us
The gifts of life,
Hear our prayers,
Smoke rising, like the Phoenix,
We are reborn
Within the sacred words.

In the Lakota tradition it was the White Buffalo Calf Woman who brought the sacred pipe to the people and taught them to pray. The bowl of the pipe was the receptacle that held tobacco, an herb with male and female medicine. The stem of the pipe represented the male entering the female and planting the seed of life. In the coming together of the male and the female, the connection to the Divine energy of Great Spirit was made. As the pipe was loaded with tobacco, every family in nature was asked to enter into the pipe and share its medicine as prayer and praise to the heavens. The smoke was considered to be a visual prayer, and was considered to be very sacred and cleansing.

All animals are sacred, but in many traditions the White Buffalo is the most sacred. The appearance of the White Buffalo means that your prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe is being honored, and that the promises of prophecy are being fulfilled. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance and plenty.

Buffalo was the major sustenance for the Plains Indians. It gave meat for food, hides for clothing, warm and soft Buffalo robes for long winters, and hooves for glue. The medicine of the Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation.

Because of its desire to give the gifts that its body provided, and because of its willingness to be used on Earth for the highest good before entering the great hunting grounds of Spirit, Buffalo did not readily stampede and run from hunters.

To use Buffalo medicine is to smoke the pipe in a sacred manner, and to give praise for the richness of life to be shared with all races and creatures, all nations and all life. It means smoking for others so that their needs are met, praying for the good of all things in harmony, and accepting the Great Mystery as a part of that harmony.

April is the month to focus on the message from the Great Buffalo. You may be asked to use your energy in prayer. You may be called upon to be used as an instrument of someone else’s answer to a prayer. This could portend of a time of recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life, albeit different from your own. To honor anothers’ pathway, even if it brings you sadness, is a part of the message that Buffalo brings. This may be a time of reconnection to the meaning of life and the value of peace. Most assuredly this time will bring serenity amid chaos if you pray in earnest for enlightenment and the power of calmness and give praise for the gifts you already have.

Buffalo medicine is a sign that you achieve nothing without the aid of Great Spirit and you must be humble enough to ask for assistance and then be grateful for what you receive.

Is April 2014 a time to be grateful for my life, my family, friends, my possessions, my talent, my abilities, my health? Is it time to make peace with another, or to make peace with some inner conflict I have so that I may walk in balance again?

Become the Buffalo. Feel the sacred smoke of prayer as the spiritual power hovers over and around you, change your Buffalo robe to white so that you may be the answer and refuge to the prayers of the world and loved ones around you.

A Journey, Communication, Union, Reunion

Raido is concerned with communication, with the attunement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of a journey when what is above and what is below unite and become one mind. This journey is the journey of the Soul. Moreover, the approach of that which is realized from innermost sentiment rather than the force of circumstances. A simple prayer for the journey of the Soul is: I will to do Thy will.

Such a simple form of prayer is proper, it seems, on almost any occasion. It is a suitable preamble, in particular, to healing. Raido is another of the Runes in the Cycle of Self-Transformation.

Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time we must remember that we are not intended to rely entirely upon our own power, but instead to ask what is right action. Ask through prayer and meditation, through addressing your own knowing, your body and the connection to your Blessed Higher Self knowing, the Witness Self, the Teacher Within. Once you are clear, then you can neutralize your refusal to allow the right course of action to flow through you. Not intent on movement, be content to wait. While you wait, keep on removing your resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from trying to make it all happen disappears.

As always, this journey is towards self-healing and unity. This can include nations with nations, as the Middle-East conflicts build to a dangerous state of affairs. The planet and each one of us are concerned here with nothing less than an unobstructed, perfect union. However, this union with Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Keep within your limits. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self towards the Self.

Trust your own Process — that is the essence of this Rune. Keep on cutting away the illusions. Stand apart from like-minded others. The notion of safety and strength in numbers does not apply at this time. This part of your soul journey cannot be shared. Innermost feeling, spontaneously expressed, is the only right action now. This Rune urges you to undertake your journey, your quest — and if you have already begun — focus and continue.

This Rune also asks you to be put on notice, particularly with your personal relationships. At this time, ruptures are more likely than reconcilation. Effort will be required on your part. Keep your good humor; whatever happens, how you respond is up to you, and will set the way.

The requirements of your Soul process may totally disrupt what you had intended for yourself this month. Hoped-for outcomes may elude you. Yet, what you may regard as detours, inconveniences, disruptions, blockages and even failures or deaths, will actually be re-routing opportunities for you, with union and reunion the only abiding destination.


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!)

The March 16th Full Moon in Virgo brings a time to wind up projects, finish activities, and generally bring things to a natural conclusion.

March 30th New Moon in Aries brings a time when you could run into some trouble if you try to start up the engine on a new project. If you want a new beginning, then find a way to preserve the past before you transition into the future

The Spring Equinox Leads us to New Beginnings – Flowers, Pets, and Spring.



Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

April brings a conflict and you want to settle on a reasonable course of action. No compromise isn’t what you’re usually famous for, but every now and then you get to settle out of court. At least you’ll know the settlement was fair.

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

April brings a time for inner reflection and sanctuary. You’ve been a bit off your game without it.  An argument of what your responsibilities are on the job comes at the Full Moon eclipse. This news needed to come to the surface, and if handled well, the workload lightens

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

April brings friends, lovers, kids, and playmates. There may be conflict in just about everything you do this month. You’re not amused when someone you work with tries to get away with something not quite on the up and up. Wait it out and all will be well. You may need to make a sudden and final decision about one relationship as well.

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

April brings a passionate, high-activity month. Bette double up on your vitamins and get yourself into an exercise program to blow off some steam. Sleepless nights may come because of a tug of war with home-related matters and career. You may wonder what you did to cause this turmoil. Stop that please, Cancer. You are not responsible for others or their decisions.

Leo (7/23-8/22)

April brings a deeper intimacy, which can be a blessing and/or a curse. Be careful at work, because it will be easy for you to miss the fine print on contracts and overestimate your financial position. A chance to jump in the car or board a plane may also arrive without much notice. Take advantage of this, as all systems are go for success and a good time.

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

April brings balance, and will be extremely helpful regarding money matters. Also, around the 20th the energies will simmer down any tensions between you and a friend you have been at odds with lately. Bring compassion with you when you sit down to talk with them.

Libra (9/23-10/22)

April brings the time to say, “No.” Even if you know others won’t be pleased. Good for you, Libra! Now, fasten your seat belt, because your love life is about to take off. It’s unpredictable at best and you just may decide you’ve had it with your current partner, clearing and making way for a new one to appear.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

April brings a spring to your step as you find time for romance and spring-fever. You also have incentive to make your surroundings beautiful. You want to create a comfortable space as well as a safe one. Be careful how you spend money and focus on restraint.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

April brings adventure, Sag. Boredom will not be an issue this month. Expect surprising communication and don’t set any calendar dates in stone. You may also be shopping for a new home. Take your time.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

April highlights domestic matters and professional responsibilities. Once again, you’ll feel torn between home and work, and an ultimatum may have to be issued. You’ll probably opt for career because you feel it will help your family in the long run. Even if you walk a tightrope for a few weeks, the perks will make it all worthwhile.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

April brings the opportunity to make your promotion. You need to enhance your opportunities and give your final answer. The most important prerequisite for any potential partner will be the shared belief in how you earn your money. Get it straight, so you can create a divine future together.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

April brings some fussing and fighting. Expect some last-minute surprises, and good news. After the 25th you’ll have some breaks in the action to rest and relax. Money issues that you have been struggling with since February can be put to bed on the 24-25. Judgments can easily flow in your favor now.
