People are my pathway to the future.
Nothing matters more than the Spiritual Life Fire dwelling within YOU!
There comes a time when you seek to comprehend the true meaning of PEACE, and how you as an individual may find that peace, a peace which the world can neither give you nor take from you.
This is one way. Visualize the blazing Star, still, and yet full of life and light. Identify yourself with the Star, with the center of that Star. Allow your energies to go into the still center of that Star. Within that center you will find that all the anxieties of material life, all the struggles that you encounter in daily life, will fall away from you. In the heart of the Star is deep, eternal peace, and within this peace you are united with those whom you love.
On a daily basis give yourself time to enter this Star Temple, this calming scene. Go into it, away from the noise and turmoil and tumult, the fears and anxieties of the material plane. There, within the center of this Star, find divine, holy peace. Hear within your Soul the music of the heavenly spheres, the music of the Holy Word, the audible life-stream which flows from the heart of the Creator.
Be still now, within your mind and body. Listen inwardly. Beneath all sound, beneath all thought, in the deep silence at the heart of creation, you will hear the harmony of God.
Elizabeth Joyce 12/02
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered CAPRICORN
The sign of CAPRICORN, in many ways, is the most misunderstood and mysterious signs of the zodiac. Following the Winter Solstice and the Super full moon closeness to the earth, you can reach the summit of material achievements or suffer the pangs of myrterdom. As your mind opens to spiritual laws and teachings, apply what you learn in a pragmatic and businesslike manner and sidestep the isolation that afflicts many born under the earth sign signified by the determined Goat and the legendary Unicorn. Keep on relentlessly moving up your private mountaintop to worldly prominence. While conservative work methods are the golden rule, don’t get trapped in a crystalized lifestyle that prevents flexibility and invites emotional rigidity. When you take command of the dynamic thinking process and concentrate on objectives with clarity, executive leadership will crown your valiant efforts.
Based on the Rune (Retreat) and Animal (Dolphin) January brings the beginning of new contracts, a sudden move, upsetting conditions at the workplace, ups and downs with the Stock Market, disrupted or delayed vacation plans along with increased fuel prices. Watch interest rates increase, the Stock Market reel, while real estate has difficulties and the workplace freezes salaries and bonuses. Be prepared to say good-bye to your old life early on, and welcome your new life direction at the Spring Equinox in March.

ANIMAL: THE DOLPHIN
DOLPHIN – Manna
Dolphin…breathe with me,
The breath of the Divine,
Manna of the Universe,
In Oneness we entwine.
Dolphins speak to us of the breath of life, the only thing that human’s cannot go without for more than a few minutes. We can live without water for days and without food for weeks, but oxygen is the source of our sustenance. Within the breath we encounter the rhythm of energy that all life emits. In changing the rate or rhythmic texture of our breath, we can tap into any other life form or creature. This is a very easy way to connect with the <I>Divine Energy of Spirit </I>as well as with your own personal body rhythm.
Dolphin is the keeper of the sacred breath of life, and teaches us how to release emotions through Dolphin breath. Dolphin creates rhythm, swimming through the water and breathing before submerging, then holding its breath for the duration of underwater travel. As Dolphin comes to the surface again, it blows its breath out in a manner resembling the popping of a cork. We can use this same technique to pull the stopper on our stress and tensions and create total relaxation for ourselves. This is a good exercise to use as you begin to meditate, before entering the silence.
Manna is the life force. Manna is present in every living atom, and is the essence of Great Spirit. Dolphin teaches us how to use life-manna through its breath. It revitalizes each cell and organ, and breaks the limits and dimensions of physical reality so that we may enter the Dreamtime experience.
Dolphin was traveling the oceans one day as Grandmother Moon was weaving the patterns of the tides. Grandmother Moon asked Dolphin to learn her rhythms so he could open his female side to her silvery light. Dolphin began to swim the rhythm of her tide weaving, and learned to breathe a new way. As Dolphin continued to use this new rhythm, he entered the Dreamtime. This reality was a new and different place from the seas he had known.
Dolphin began to discover the underwater cities in the Dreamtime, and was given the gift of the primordial tongue. This new language was a sound language that was brought by Spider from the Great Star Nation. Dolphin learned that all communication is pattern and rhythm, and that the new aspect of communication was sound; he carries this original pattern to this day. Dolphin returned to the ocean of the Great Mother, and was very sad until White Whale came by and told Dolphin that he could return to be a messenger to the Dreamtime dwellers anytime he felt the rhythm and used the breath. Dolphin was given a new job. He became the carrier of messages of our progress. The Dreamtime dwellers were curious about the children of Earth, and wanted us all to grow as one with Great Spirit. Dolphin was to be the link.
Dolphin has appeared as our guide for the Winter of the year 2017. This year will link together all children of the Earth. This is a time when you will notice a growth in telepathic power, as you become a link to some solution for the children of the Earth. You are to link with Great Spirit and bring forth answers to your own questions and those of others. In addition, this can mean a time of communication with the weather forces and the rhythms of nature. You are hereby put on notice to be mindful of your body rhythms and the pattern on energy being fed to you by the Creator. Imitate Dolphin in stressful and tense times, and ride the waves of relaxation and laughter, spreading joy into the world. Breathe and experience the manna so freely given. As we go through earth changes and planetary reform, break existing barriers and connect to the Dreamtime or Great Star Nation. Know that we are healthy, whole and complete in the eyes of the Ever-living One.
If you get into a dark state that feels unbearable, know that you are simply forgetting to breathe. You may be under stress and your body is crying out for manna. You may be starving your cells and organs no matter how many vitamins you are taking. Your natural cycles may be fouling up if you are having negative thought processes. Pay close attention to your health and to your feelings. If you are on edge or just tense, take time to relax and breathe the life force into your muscles. Focus on releasing old breath at the bottom of your lungs and refilling your respiratory system with regenerative manna. Breathe from the diaphragm and fill the lungs to capacity. Then exhale from the chest to the belly, allowing the body to relax as you breathe out.
Another message may come if you are feeling lazy, logy or slow, and that is that many signals are carried through universal tides or waves. You may be failing to sharpen and use your natural sonar. To detect these wave patterns you may need to realign yourself with the natural rhythms within your body. They can be thrown off through world events or extreme weather upsets anywhere on the planet. Then it will be necessary to use the Dolphin breath to connect to universal awareness and signals through quiet time and meditation.
For January 2017, Dolphin reminds us to dive deeply into the water, play by the coral reefs, and to discover the beauty and rhythm of the breath. Remember the time is NOW and the power is YOU!
When the power of love replaces the love of power, then we can begin our journey of awakening.

RUNE OF THE MONTH
Retreat — Separation — Inheritance
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 Capricorn/Aquarius energies for January 2017. Just in time for the Chinese new Year on the 27th, the Year of the Rooster, 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 and inner direction you possess now in your life. Because you may be called upon to undertake a radical departure from old ways, total honesty is required. Otherwise, through negligence or refusal to see clearly, you may cause pain to others as well as 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 – January’s Rune reminds us that we do without doing, and everything gets done.

STARGAZING FOR CAPRICORN 2017
Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign
and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.
The January 12th Full Moon in Cancer brings an incredibly difficult Full Moon, as it joins with a four-point configuration known as a Cardinal Grand Cross, which can exaggerate the bad stuff in the Mass Consciousness, and loves action. The best way to deal with this energy is to bring everything to a full stop. Then you can regroup and refocus. By doing this you can really get a handle on the situation because this stern influence asks that you conduct a serious reality check on the state of your life over the next three weeks. This is certainly a time when you have to be alert and on your toes.
The January 27th New Moon in Aquarius the Chinese New Year – the year of the Fire Rooster. Rooster Years are a time of drama and progressive action, and the element of fire indicates strong-willed and flamboyant leaders. The last Year of the Fire Rooster was in 1957. This energy can bring up deep issues within that may feel deeper than outer space.
CAPRICORN: Polarity: Masculine Sign: Cardinal Element: Earth Planetary Rule: 10th House/Saturn Body: Anatomy, Knees, Skin
FOCUS: Productive, practical change brings new avenues for success
THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
Playtime will be hard to come by thanks to a testy square between Saturn and Mars. Just this once try to be patience, Aries. Please spend some time behind the scenes with those you completely trust who you can confide in. The temptation to walk away from your current position, and tell your superiors what’s what, will be very strong mid-month. Navigate financial waters with a partner. Further investing isn’t the way to go.
Your friendships and group relationships will be a very spiritual and confusing place in January, Taurus. If you’re already a part of a metaphysical or religious group. circumstances may push you into thinking why. If you like what you see, you’ll stay. You’ll stay in your on-work relationships, so keep your eye out for a delicious new co-worker. Fire things up and provide opportunity for adventure.
January brings some dreamy moments with that someone new. There are many opportunities for behind-the-scenes recreation in dimly lit places. If involved with someone who isn’t free, or a business acquaintance, tone it down a bit at month’s end. Your reputation is on stage all month long, Gemini.
January urges you to kick back, relax with someone special, and binge watch at lease one of your favorite programs. If you cross paths with someone who seems “just perfect” for you, you just may have found your soul mate; however, you must be doubly cautions and give this new relationship lots of time. If you don’t get some breathing room, you could be in the mood to rebel. Just be sure you don’t go into battle because you’re in the mood for it.
January brings a time to kick off into parts unknown. You won’t have much trouble finding a spontaneous companion for a weekend getaway. Just make sure you let your friends and family know all this before you disappear. Have fun!
January highlights your one-on-one relationships, inspiring smiles and passion. If you’re happily attached, your bonds will grow closer. If single, know that love-at-first-sight is in the air. Vow to go slow and take time to get to know each other. Close friends and relatives might be at your door. Serve a home-cooked meal. What’s better than feeding those you love?
With Jupiter in your sign, nice adventures haven’t been hard to come by. January brings a trip with your friends or loved one. Perhaps to a place you haven’t visited in a long time. Mortgages or loans are confusing and difficult to negotiate. Best to reschedule until after the 20th.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
January gives you the time to finally kick back and relax. Someone you’ve been seeing lately becomes a bit needy. Step back before getting too attached. Is this really what you want? Be careful not to lose money this month, Scorpio. Keep your eye on your wallet, and don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you.
January brings gratitude, Sag. Time to step back, take a look around, and realize exactly how good you have it. Don’t be surprised if you’re asked to take the reins in a new group effort. Also, you should feel in control of your finances now. Good job! The truth comes out about something you’ve been waiting for mid-month.
Finding time for business meetings and romantic get-togethers’ could be difficult as January opens. Let the Universe do the driving, because rain dates could wind up being the best ever. The extra effort you’ve made in career matters pays off now, Cap, But your family may grouse over not seeing too much of you lately.
2017 begins with a bang for you, Aquarius. Your emotions are running high and your passions feverish, and all for the right reasons! Around the 27th is the time to extend yourself out further into the world you want to be in. The world knows just how unique a snowflake you really are. Just don’t push your new admirer away. Keep a lid on it!
You may need a few days to get over your New Year’s celebration, Pisces. Your mission is to keep away from loud music, bright lights, and any part of reality that may be a bit harsh. A certain someone may play a party or reunion for you. You could spend a bit of your hard earned cash on glamour and appearance. You look delicious!
