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 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, 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 CANCER
Cancer, the first water sign, is the phase for personality integration and building an inspired home base in the world. Take the fiery 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.
July brings new beginnings with an eye toward a prosperous and successful future. Expect upsetting weather conditions and heavy electrical storms, tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as out of control fires. July begins in a laid back, slow mode, but speeds up by mid-month. Many momentous decisions will have to be made, bringing you to a new plateau and by mid-September you’ll be well on the way to a brand new life style.

ANIMAL: THE TURKEY
Turkey is actually thought to be the Give-Away Eagle or South Eagle of many native people. The philosophy of give-away was practiced in many tribes. Simply stated, it is the deep and abiding recognition of the sacrifices of both self and others. People in modern-day society, who have many times more than they need, should study the noble turkey who sacrifices itself so that we may live. In turkey’s death, we have our life. In July 2015 we honor the Turkey.
Spectators unfamiliar with the cultural phenomenon of the pot latch or give-away ceremony are often mystified by it. A tribal member may gladly give away all he or she owns, and do without in order to help the People. In present day urban life, we are taught to acquire and get ahead. The person with the most toys wins the game. In some cultures, no one can win the game unless the whole of the People’s needs are met. A person who claims more than his or her share is looked upon as selfish, or crazy, or both. The poor, the aged, and the feeble have honor. The person who gives away the most and carries the burdens of the People is one of the most respected.
Turkey was the medicine of many saints and mystics. Celebrate if you have Turkey medicine. Your virtues are many. You have transcended self. You act and react on behalf of others. You aspire to help those who need your help. This is not out of some sense of self-righteous morality or religious guilt. Help and sustenance is given by Turkey out of the realization that all life is sacred. It is knowing that the Great Spirit resides within all people. It is an acknowledgment that what you do for others you do for yourself. Turkey medicine rests in true ego, in enlightenment. Doing unto others and feeding the people is the message of all true spiritual systems.
July 2015 brings each and every one of us a true gift. This gift can be spiritual, material or intellectual, it can be great or small, but it is never insignificant. Congratulations! You may have just won the lottery. The gift may be a beautiful sunset, or the smell of a fragrant flower. On the other hand you may begin to feel the spirit of giving growing within you, and wanting to share that with others

RUNE of the Month – Othila
Othila represents real property, acquisition and benefits. It seems strange to say, but the benefits you receive, the inheritance, may be derived from something you must give up. This can be particularly difficult when that which you are called upon to give up or abandon is part of your background and your cultural inheritance. For then you must look closely at what, until now, you have proudly claimed as your birthright. Whether it is your attachment to your position in society, to the work you do or even the beliefs about your own nature, the separation called for now will free you to become more truly who you are.
Othila is the Rune of the separating of paths. Old skins must be shed, outmoded relationships discarded. This Rune has appeared in the Cancer energies for July 2015, advises us that a peeling away is now called for. This is the Rune of radical service!
The proper action here is submission, and, quite probably, retreat. Retreat in the sense of reserve in your conduct; for knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing that anyone can learn. Know when to retreat and have the firmness of character to carry it out.
Take pains not to be mechanical or unaware of what is happening around you. This is not a time to be bound by old conditions and old authority. When going through changes, release and letting go, ask yourself what feels right for you and act according to the Light you possess now in your life. Because you may be called upon to undertake a radical departure from the old ways, total honesty is required. Otherwise, through negligence or refusal to see clearly, you may cause pain to others, or damage to yourself.
Not rigidity but flow is the proper attitude at this time. And yet you must wait for the Universe to act. Othila – July’s Rune – reminds us that we do without doing, and everything gets done.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

The July 1st Full Moon gives you the chance to express yourself in no uncertain terms, Gemini. Whatever you’ve been waiting to say now is the time.

The July 1st Full Moon asks that you tend carefully to those miniscule details of a situation you’ve been trying to avoid for months now. You need to be practical, realistic, and perhaps call in a pro if you can’t handle it alone. Time to clear up any financial matters that have been troublesome. A new love could appear after the 15th.
The first of two July Full Moons on the 1st brings stimulating conversations and a focus on finances. The good news is that you’ve come up with some work ideas that can also be fun.

This time they won’t come back.
