THE GOLDEN ROSE OF SUMMER
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.
Pray and and meditate on the yellow 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, always! The petals of this divine flower are slowly opening as you chant your prayers, opening to
The Sun has entered CANCER
Cancer, the first water sign, is the phase for personality integration and building an inspired home base in the world. Take the firey independence of Aries, the fierce dedication of Taurus, the effervescent thinking of Gemini and weave them into a firm foundation for individual fulfillment. Represented by the armored Crab and the agile Cat, this sign reminds you to be shrewd and tenacious and to keep clawing your way to success. Old memories, a sense of history and family heritage provide a solid background for you to face the future with confidence. As you dispel the clouds of moodiness and emotional vulnerability, trust your feelings and your decision-making process and watch your psychic sensitivity grow in the process. A maternal, nurturing manner can be a comforting gift to relatives and colleagues over the Independence Holiday weekend.
Based on the Rune (Opening) and Animal (Dragonfly), July 2014 brings a time of

Dragonfly – breaks illusions,
Brings visions of power,
No need to prove it
Now is the Hour!
Know it, believe it,
Great Spirit intercedes,
Feeding you, blessing you
Filling all your needs.
Dragonfly medicine is of the dreamtime and the illusionary facade we accept as physical reality. The iridescence of the Dragonfly wings reminds us of colors not found in our everyday experience. Dragonfly is shifting color, energy, form, and movement which explodes into the mind of the observer, bringing vague memories of a time or place where magic reigned.
Some legends say that Dragonfly was once Dragon, and that Dragon had scales like the Dragonfly wings. Dragon was full of wisdom, and flew through the night bringing light with its fiery breath. The breath of the Dragon brought forth the art of magic and the illusion of changing form. Then Dragon got caught in its own facade. Coyote tricked Dragon into changing form, and the shape of its new body became like a Dragonfly. In accepting the challenge to prove its power and magical prowess, Dragon lost its power.
Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communications from the elemental world. This elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants, and the four elements of air, earth, fire and water. In essence, this world is full of nature spirits.
Dragonfly comes into the vibration of July 2014, which can mean no rainfall and a dry month ahead. It’s time to give thanks for the food on your table and the clothes on your back. On the psychological level, it may be time to break down the illusions you have held that restrict your actions or ideas.
Dragonfly medicine always beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which you need to change. Have you put on too much weight? Are you smoking heavily? Have you started to look like a scarecrow? Do you oversee someone elses’ life to an interfering degree? Have you tended to the changes you have wanted to make in your own life? If you feel the need for change, or a move, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.
Follow Dragonfly to the place inside your body where magic is still alive, and drink deeply of its power. This strength belongs to you. It is the power of becoming the illusion. Creating your reality means you see it, believe it, become one with it, and then the reality is there. This inate ability to manifest and transform is within all of us and is ever-changing with the knowledge that you are the one creating it all!

RUNE OF THE MONTH
This is the Rune of opening up, of renewed clarity, of dispelling darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive, and to know the joy of non-attached giving. service!
Kano is the Rune of the morning of activities, of seriousness, clarity and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of work. The protection offered by this Rune is that the more light you have, the more you practice your spiritual meditations, the better you can see what is trivial and outmoded in your personal life, stemming from your childhood pre-conditioning.
In relationships, there can be a mutual opening up. You may serve as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness, that the light of understanding is once again available to you both.
Recognize that, while on the one hand you are limited and dependent, on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent forces of the universe merge and radiate. You are that center. Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark, there is now enough light to see that the patient on the operating table is yourself!
In this time of the Cancer energies 2014 – one can expect a darkening of the light in some situation or relationship. A friendship may be dying, a partnership or marriage, some aspect of yourself or your work, an old way of being needs to be let go of, because it is no longer proper or valid for you. You are being asked to recognize that failure for you to face up to this death consciously would constitute a loss of opportunity. Kano is one of the Cycle Runes, and it can point to an inner death of a way of living, because it has been now invalidated through your personal spiritual growth.
So Dear Ones, give up gladly the old, and be prepared to live for a while empty. Spirit cannot enter a vessel that is full and running over. Wait! Have patience! Develop your inner stability, not allowing yourself to be seduced by the momentum of old ways, but instead, wait for the new. Know in your heart at all times that the NEW will become illuminated in its proper time.

STARGAZING FOR CANCER 2014
Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.
The July 12th Full Moon in Capricorn brings a time when it’s easier than usual to blow things out of proportion. Time to wind down, finish projects, and put an end to some bad habits. This Full Moon emotions and tides are expected to be bigger than usual. Expect rainstorms and excessive flooding.
The July 26th New Moon in Leo brings luck and good fortune. Anything begun under a Leo Moon is powerful, but don’t get carried away. You could fly too close to the Sun and suffer a crash landing. Leo brings the power to endure, so whatever begins now will certainly have a long life.
Mercury turns direct on July 2nd
THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
In July, Jupiter enters your love and romance area, and your list of admirers grows. You won’t be bored for a moment. The tough part is waving goodbye to the dear ones that board the plane to fly home. Hang on to any relationship that’s worth the effort, and release all the rest.
As July opens, more than one confusing financial issue has come up, Taurus. The good news is that it’s time to resolve this. Look to July 13th for good news to arrive. You have several opportunities to earn money in some odd and unusual ways this month.
This is not a good time to lend money to some friends, Gemini, especially if its not pocket change. Any urge to make changes in the status quo will meet with resistance as well, so take comfort in the familiar. Spend your time and money on family matters and your home and domestic situations. August brings a time when anything is possible. If you’re trying to talk someone into giving you your best shot, you will not fail!
It will be tough to keep you quiet if you see someone being unfairly held back from getting what they deserve. If this is you, then you will be unstoppable until you know you have received what you have earned. At the Full Moon you might decide that your casual relationship is one step closer to marriage.
Mercury turns direct on July 2nd, which causes much rejoicing. However, you may feel the urge to carefully pore over the facts that surround a recent pact between members of your current group, and what you find may not be something to celebrate. On the other hand, you’ll solve a mystery. After Jupiter enters Leo, your fans will be waiting in the wings to applaud you.
You are just dying to get the right information to the right people after being responsible for muddling it up while Mercury was retrograde. Facts become clear after the 2nd, especially with career matters and encounters with respected authority figures. You may find that someone important was on your side all along.
The long-distance news you’ve been waiting for finally arrives around the 8th, Libra. You may receive an inheritance or some delayed funds from past work. After the 27th, you plan to get out there on the road. Ready or not, here comes success! Love and friendships are strong and good now; the lasting kind.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
July brings a time to learn, grow, and expand your horizons. Taking classes or planning vacation venues might be just the ticket for you. You are kept busy in the department of intimacy now. You may have several people you see, but you make a choice by the 18th. Impulsive situations are probable so enjoy the fireworks.
As July opens you concentrate on your important relationships, and may call a meeting to discuss some issues. There is a lot left unsaid between you, but you can work it out if you don’t retaliate and strive to listen. Just be honest! You begin to take an interest in those closest to you, and your life partner is included.
After all the time you’ve put into learning your trade and establishing a good reputation, Cap, you may decide now that it’s time to put the show on the road and strike out on your own. After July 16th it will be a lot easier to get a loan or mortgage on a business property. If there is any way to stay away from controlling or manipulative people this month, best to stay away.
Talk about some fun times at Ridgewood High! It’s time for reunions, either high school or college. Now is the time to redo your adolescence. The good news is that this time you get the chance to bring all your wisdom and experience along. It’s the best of both worlds. However, July also brings stress when dealing with your work schedule and social life.
The extra warm July weather will be nothing compared to the new found passion you’ve found for the ones you love and your favorite cause. Someone highly experienced and ready to help you professionaly may point out the flaws in your current plan. Your mission is to resist reacting from a personal point of view and take their advice in the spirit it’s offered. You can make great strides now if you don’t allow your ego to get in the way.
