Newsletter — ARIES 2021
Being true to yourself is what really counts, and this year I am putting that first.
A LIVING PRESENCE
I remain locked within the wings
Of my Beloved Master.
Held in the arms of Spirits
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 Spirit 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 along with 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 28th. 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, with your 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 SWAN
Swan — The power of woman
Entering sacred space
Touching the future—Yet to come
Bringing to all eternal Grace.
Little Swan flew through the Dreamtime, the veil of light, looking for the future. She rested a moment in the coolness of the pond, looking for a way to find the entry point to the future, the Stargate. This was a moment of confusion for the Swan, as she knew she had happened into Dreamtime by accident. This was her first meditation flight alone and she was a bit concerned about the Dreamtime landscape.
As Swan looked high above Sacred Mountain, she saw the biggest swirling black hole she had ever seen. Dragonfly came flying by, and Swan stopped him to ask about the black hole. Dragonfly said, “Swan, that is the doorway to the other planes of our imagination. I have been a guardian of the illusion for many moons. If you want to enter there, you will have to ask permission of the higher forces and earn the right to do so.”
Swan was not so sure she wanted to enter the black hole. She asked Dragonfly what was necessary to earn the entry. “You must be willing to accept whatever the future holds as it is presented in your life, without trying to change the Great Spirit plan.” Swan looked at her ugly duckling body and then answered, “I will be happy to abide by the Great Spirit plan. I will not fight the currents of the black hole. I will surrender to the flow of the spiral and what I am shown.”
Dragonfly was very happy with her answer and began to spin the magic to break through the illusion of the pond. Suddenly Swan was engulfed in the whirlpool in the center of the pond.
Swan reappeared many days later, but now she was graceful, white and had a long neck. Dragonfly was stunned! “Swan what happened to you?” he exclaimed. Swan smiled and said, “Dragonfly, I learned to surrender my body to the power of the Great Spirit and was taken to where the future lives. I saw many wonders high on the Sacred Mountain and because of my faith and my acceptance, I have been changed. I have learned to accept the State of Grace.” Dragonfly was very happy for Swan.
Swan told Dragonfly many wonders beyond the veil of illusion. Through her healing and her acceptance of the State of Grace she was given permission to enter the Dreamtime. So it is that we learn to surrender into the grace and rhythm of the universe and we are able to slip out of our physical bodies into Dreamtime. Swan medicine teaches us to be one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in the Great Spirit protection.
April of 2021 ushers is a time of altered states of consciousness and the development of your intuitive abilities. Swan medicine people have the ability to see the future, to surrender to the power of Great Spirit, and to accept healing along with transformation of their lives.
The month of April 2021 is telling you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead. If you are resisting your self-transformation, relax! It will be easier when you go with the flow. Stop denying to yourself that you know who it is when the phone rings. Pay attention to your inner hunches as well as your gut feeling reactions, and honor the female intuitive side of yourself.

RUNE of the Month—Thurisaz
Place of Non-Action
With a gateway for its symbol, this Rune indicates that there is work to do both inside and outside of yourself. The Spirit of Transformation guards the gate of the personal world, looking out as well as in, symbolizing the abiding urge to transcend the limits of the little self. The Gateway is at once a portal and a frontier between Heaven and the mundane. Having this Rune during the energies of Aries, completes a cycle that brings new beginnings and is a recognition of your readiness to contact the luminous, the Divine, to illuminate your experience so that its meaning shines through its form.
Thurisaz is the Rune of non-action. This Gateway is not to be approached and passed through without contemplation. During the time of Aries energies, you are being confronted with a true reflection of what is hidden within yourself, what must be exposed and examined before successful action can be undertaken. This Rune’s strength lies in its ability to wait. This is not a time to take decisions. Deep transformational forces are at work with this Rune.
Visualize a gateway on a hilltop. Your entire life lies behind you and below. Before you pass through this Gateway, pause and review the past; the learning, the joys, the tests and tribulations, all you have experienced and all it took to bring you to this place, this moment.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
April puts you in a celebratory mood as the Holidays leads to reunions, visits, and travel, as well as a break from routine. It feels so good to be “getting back outside” again.
In April, just when you begin to breathe normally again the wheel of restrictions and limitations begin to enter your arena in your workspace. Ambition is a good thing as long as you don’t overdo “it’s my way or the highway” when schedules don’t meet your expectations. Cool heads do not prevail in early April as they are not the best days to conduct meetings or interviews. Arguments flair up, schedules are not to your liking, and key people are missing from your support system. Pluto goes retrograde on the 27th indicating that it’s time to rethink your agenda.
In April your work environment dominates the essence of communication. The powers that be discuss organizational resources and allocation of funds.
