AFFIRMATION

Setting up rules that I can live by is my first priority.

MEDITATION

THE RED ROSE OF LOVE

Small_Red_RoseNow withdraw into the rose center of your heart. Meditate on the perfect red rose. The rose of twelve petals lies at the temple of your heart. It's petals are opening to the sun - every petal gleaming and glowing with the light. There is an ineffable light in the heart of the rose.

Become enfolded within these petals, in a soft pearly light. You are within the temple of the rose, the Sun pours down into the heart... opening up the doorway to all empowering, unconditional Love. You are a part of this radiance and one with all of humanity, within the heart of the ROSE.

Think of Amma, and meditate on the red 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.

—Elizabeth Joyce

Amma is on Her US Tour this month - go to Amma.org for the complete schedule.

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 armoured 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.

ANIMAL: MOUSE — Scrutiny

ANIMAL: MOUSE
If I could see the world
Through your tiny eyes,
Maybe I would know
How to scrutinize!.

Every detail carries weight,
And true to its purpose,
Has its perfect place,
To stop the wandering and
Three ring circus!

Mouse says, “I will touch everything with my whiskers in order to know it.” Paradoxically, this is both a great power and a great weakness. It is good medicine to see up close and to pay attention to detail. It is bad medicine to chew everything into little pieces.

Mouse has many predatory enemies, including birds, snakes, and cats. Mouse is food for many, so it has a highly developed sense of danger at every turn. So-called civilization is a highly complex set of components which calls for more and more highly organized skills and scrutiny every year. Mouse is a powerful medicine to have in these times. Things that may appear insignificant to others take on enormous importance to Mouse.

Mouse people will frustrate and anger many others at times because they appear to be nit-pickers. Mouse people will spot the lint on someone’s skirt, even if it matches in color. They will try to convince you that the simplest task is fraught with difficulty. They are fixated on methodology. They sort, categorize, and file away information for further use. They may seem like they are hoarding, but this is the farthest thing from Mouse’s mind. They are merely putting everything in order so they can explore things more carefully at a later date.

The Shaman Chief tells us that without Mouse, there would be no system or organization of knowledge. Mouse knowledge ended the Renaissance Man and awakened the age of specialization. Mouse knew from the very beginning that “there is always more to learn.” One can always delve deeper, and deeper, and deeper.

July, 2018, has brought to us the medicine of Mouse. You may be fearful of life but very well organized, with a compartment for everything. You should try to see a larger picture than the one that is staring you in the face. Develop a largeness of Spirit. Try to become aware of the winds of change, the rain, the sun, and the great dance of life. Realize that even though you may live in Santa Barbara, there is also New York. There is a moon, a solar system, a galaxy, and an infinite Universe. Jump high, little friend, and you may see the Sacred Mountain.

July and the time of Cancer is telling you to scrutinize. Look at yourself and others carefully. Maybe that big hunk of cheese is sitting on a spring awaiting a deadly trap! Perhaps the cat is in the pantry waiting just for you. Maybe someone to whom you have delegated authority, such as a doctor, lawyer, or the plumber, is not doing the job faithfully. This message from Mouse is to see exactly what is in front of your eyes, and then, act accordingly.

RUNE of the Month - TIEWAZ

WARRIOR


Tiewaz
The Spiritual Warrior

Tiewaz represents the Rune of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle of the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action, yet unattached to the outcome, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the Will of Heaven flow through you. These are the Hallmarks of the Spiritual Warrior.

Embodied in this Rune is the energy of discrimination, the sword-like quality that enables us to cut away the old, the dead, the extraneous, With this Rune comes the certain knowledge that the universe always makes the first move. Patience is the virtue of this Rune, and it recalls us to the words of St. Augustine that the reward of patience is patience.  The molding of character is the issue as this Rune appears for July 2018.

During this time of eclipses and seasonal weather changes you are asked to look within, to delve down into the foundations of your life itself. Only in so doing can you hope to deal with the deepest needs of your nature and to tap into your most profound resources. Associated with the Rune is the Sun, yang energy, the active principle. The urge toward conquest is prominent here, especially self-conquest, which is a lifelong pursuit and calls for awareness, single-mindedness, and the willingness to undergo your passage without anxiety and in total trust of the divine purpose.

When Tiewaz comes in response to a romantic attachment, it indicates that the relationship is both timely and providential. The bond is to a partner with whom you resonate. There is much work for you to do together.

If the issues relate to your devotion to a cause, an idea, a path of conduct, or to political matters, the Warrior Rune counsels perseverance, although, at times, the kind of perseverance called for is patience. What are your priorities? How are you using your energies? Tiewaz is a Rune of courage and dedication. In ancient times it was the glyph that warriors painted on their shields before battle. Now, with  more refined energies in play, the same symbol strengthens your resolve in the struggle of the Self with the self.

This is a Rune of powerful energy. The danger is that through hasty or ill-timed action energy leaks out, is spilled away. This way there will be ultimate and complete success for the elimination of terrorism, dictatorship, fear and destruction.

If an association is short-lived, do not grieve, but know it has fulfilled its span. Matters of trust and confidence are at issue here, and with them the authenticity of your way of being in the world.

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!)

CANCER

astrologyline

The July 12th New Moon in Cancer brings a Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer. It focuses on water and could open the floodgates to more inclement weather. This Moon is particularly intense as well as a Super Moon with the Sin opposing Pluto at the same time. Batten down the hatches, prepare for some darkness, and do not initiate anything new at this time.

The July 27th Full Moon in Aquarius brings a Lunar Eclipse. While Full Moons represent endings and completions, this one brings in the unexpected nature of Aquarius signaling that it’s a time of waiting to act. Also the Venus-Pluto trine suggests your problem is around money and love. Tread lightly and wait to see what each day brings.

Mercury is retrograde from July 24th through August 19th, 2018

astrologyline

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

July brings a contact with an old friend, maybe an old flame. Don’t be surprised if an old “partner in crime” resurfaces, to test you. Keep your guard up. Prepare for roadblocks and delays mid-month when Jupiter retrogrades in Scorpio. Muster up some patience because if you can wait awhile you will get everything you need.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

July brings a chance to kick back and rest around the 8th. It’s a time when you could be in the right place at the right time to meet someone special. You may not fall in love at first sight, but you can’t win if you don’t play, cautious Taurus. Although you are not a fan of change, a whole lot is coming to you at month’s end, and you may have initiated it yourself.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

July brings you all kinds of friends along with interesting, exciting news. Your siblings, neighbors and oldest son will keep you on your toes. Their news can cause interruption in your daily schedule, so pencil in some hectic time in your daily schedule. Your luck changes around the 11th around the Solar Eclipse. Time to buy that ONE lottery ticket. You should really think hard before you open any relationship doors at month’s end.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

The week of July 4th is great for you, Cancer. Spend a long weekend with loved ones. It’s possible to make amends with someone from past hurts. Forgive and forget, especially if the actions weren’t deliberate. July 13th is a lucky day for you. It enables you to settle an old money matter that’s come again, refusing to be ignored. Whether you owe or someone owes you, don’t blow it off this time.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

At the Full Moon on July 12th, any secrets you have could come out into the open. Don’t worry because it could be some very happy news. You may need to pull some paperwork quickly to finalize a financial deal mid-month. Do yourself a favor and be prepared early. Surprising news comes about your lover at month’s end.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

July brings a time for rest and relaxation. Let go of work and projects, kick back, and enjoy the summer. It will do you a lot of good. You learn a secret and find it difficult to keep still. Your love could be caught in some kind of a tangled web. Be sharp and aware of any financial deals you're involved in now. If you’ve been questioning a relationship’s value to you, the truth comes out at month’s end, for good or for ill.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

The energies of July insist that you get out there and have some fun, Libra. You could meet a new group of peers so let them know you’ll be an asset to this group. You may decide to take up with someone who’s not quite available. Be very careful, as the truth will come out around the 25th. A windfall may come your way now, so don’t get crazy. Think twice before you take on another monthly payment.

eagleScorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

July is the time to try something new. Investigate a new activity or business you’re curious about. You want to shake things up and create a break in your routine, so go for it. You may be feeling alone, but there’s no reason for you to be. Go to gatherings and parties and mingle with some new people. You may feel a bit extravagant at month’s end. Whatever you purchase should be something you need and will enjoy.

archerSagittarius (11/23-12/21)

July brings the passion to travel to some far off lands and perhaps visit someone you’re anxious to see. Enjoy whatever the Universe has in store for you. You may feel an attraction with someone older than yourself, some kind of a higher-up. Tread carefully and remember who signs your paycheck. After Mercury retrogrades on the 25th, pay attention to your intuition and follow your instincts, especially when traveling.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

July is an unsettling month for you Capricorns. There will be little free time. However, the Universe is sure to throw some exciting and interesting people your way, so you won’t be bored. Around the 12th the focus will be on a relationship that’s been fading away. It’s decisions time. Will you let it go or work on giving it more of your attention? You can change a lot with an honest conversation.

water-bearer

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

The July 4th Holiday surrounds you with some fiery, interesting people. You won’t be bored, which is what you hate more than anything. Allow yourself some downtime. Mercury retrogrades on the 25th which could interrupt some vacation plans. If you need to reschedule, others won’t mind that much. You could change jobs at the Solar Eclipse. Make sure you have a Plan B in place.

fishes

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

You’ve been working hard, and July brings you some downtime. Around the 9th is decision time about a current relationship. It’s time to tell someone how you feel and/or what you expect from them. If they don’t like it, too bad. Time to think of your own needs first. You will need to set a budget and curtail your spending at month’s end. You may also need to cut someone away from your gravy train. No fair feeling guilty!

JUNE 2018

GEMINI

AFFIRMATION

Balancing work, play, and relationships is my priority,

MEDITATION

CHANGE IS A COMING—BUT YOUR LIFE CAN MAKE 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 feel 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.

—Elizabeth Joyce

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.

The Sun has entered GEMINI

The transit of the Sun through airy GEMINI brings you face to face with the principle of duality. You can divide the world in half, making contradiction the norm, or expand your mental horizons to synthesize several approaches simultaneously. Choose this latter path during the phase of the Twins. By elevating your intellectual standards of higher knowledge and honest communication, your consciousness taps into new veins of rich ore. Exult in the exploration of reading, writing, short travels and scientific inquiry. By placing an emphasis on wit, good humor, and the potency in your voice and hands, this cycle can sate your curiosity and let the creative genie out of the bottle.

June the month of weddings and graduations. In the United States we have a veritable industry centered on helping people figure out where they are on a scale from passive to assertive to aggressive, and how to move them themselves from one place on that scale to another. A person's basic temperament is what it's called at least up to a point, and most of us have our basic strengths and weaknesses.  Another human quality that each of us has to work on is something we face  most often when we are in love, or at least think we are. Commitment! For some people, saying "I love you" means forever, while for others it might mean for an hour, or a day, or until the "real thing," whatever that is, comes along.

This is the month we find out about commitment, deceit, lies, betrayal, and the results of our actions. The truth comes out in June.

From: Medicine Cards by Sams & Carson, published by Bear & Co.

ANIMAL—The OWL — DECEPTION

Owl, Magic, Omens
Time and space,
Does the Truth emerge?
Casting out deception
In silent flight -
Owl - the sacred medicine bird.

Owl medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magic, both black and white. Owl is called Night Eagle on several medicine wheels. Traditionally, Owl sits in the East, the place of illumination. Since time immemorial, humanity has been afraid of the night, the dark, the unseen—waiting fearfully for the first crack of dawn, welcoming the morning light. Conversely, night and Owl are our friends.

Owl hunts its prey at night. Not only can Owl see in the dark, but it can also accurately pinpoint and identify any sound. This gives it a great advantage when seeking food. Owls are the night hunters. Some native people are fearful of the Owl and call its feathers "deceiver feathers". An Owl's feather is silent. You cannot hear Owl when it flies, but its prey definitely knows when it strikes, for its beak and talons are razor sharp.

Owl is oftentimes the medicine of sorcerers and witches. If Owl has come forth this month of June 2017, you may be drawn into magical practices and perhaps beginning to explore the dark arts. There could be some strange world events, or silent but deadly and unexpected acts of aggression. You should be forewarned never to practice any black arts that may tap into and take away the energies of another person. Owl is the symbol for wisdom. Owl can see what others cannot. When others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what's there.

Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, had a companion Owl on her shoulder which revealed secret truths to her. Owl could light up Athena's blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth as opposed to a half truth. So know that from now on, no one can deceive you about what they are doing, no matter how they try to disguise or hide it from you.

You may be a little frightening to be around, since so many others have ulterior motives which will be revealed to you. You can see right through them! You may frighten them and reflect their blindness, for you cannot be fooled. Owl medicine people know more about an individual's inner life than that person knows about themselves.

So—this month we are being asked to use our powers of keen insight and observation to look into some life situation. Owl is befriending you—and aiding you into seeing the truth. Owl can bring you messages in the night through dreams or meditation. Pay attention to these signals and omens. The truth always brings us further enlightenment.

JUNE CRYSTAL — Pearl - Tigereye

PEARL This gift from the sea brings tears to those who receive it. The pearl, as a standard jewelry piece and lovely as it is, reminds us of the oyster and other sea creatures. We have loved many products of nature and have destroyed nature in the process. Pearls are formal, correct and always beautiful.

TIGER EYE A variety of quartz. Beneficial for spleen, pancreas, digestive organs and colon. Emotional behavior and enhances connection with personal power and will. Creates grounding and centering. Helps soften stubbornness. Enhances clear perception and insight. Slightly masculine energy.

RUNE of the Month

GATEWAY

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 Virgo,  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 Gemini 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. Bless it, release it, and let it go! For in doing so, you will reclaim what is truly yours, the powers within the Universe.

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.

GEMINI

Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign
and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.

The June 13th New Moon in Gemini brings a Supermoon and a point of initiation. This fun-filled moon encourages us to get out and network, shop locally, and upgrade or try some new technology.

The June 27th Full Moon in Capricorn brings a time to get focused and serious and bring any financial transactions to their conclusion. It’s a time when your karmic debts and financial debts come due. The energy becomes fiery, bold, and more on drama than on the details. This can bring in minor anxiety and stress and it’s best to postpone any conversations or meetings until next week.

astrologyline

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

As June opens there may be an apology that needs to be expressed. This is the time to let the spirit of forgiveness fill you, so don’t delay any longer. If you’ve been trying to impress a higher-up, be careful around the 23rd. Don’t do anything lavish, keep it simple. Summon up some patience and earn their interest.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

June reminds you that spring is your season and food is your passion. It will be easy to invite dear ones over to your place for cocktails and dinner, especially if you tell them you’ll be doing the cooking.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

June brings another fabulous social month so buckle up and prepare yourself. Mid-month brings a challenge and you may find yourself ready to reverse your thoughts about an issue that’s been near and dear to you for some time. Just make sure its new, creative information and that someone else didn’t just talk you into it.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

As June opens, there is plenty of time for you to relax and enjoy with your nearest and dearest. Assertive Mars moves into a battle zone. If you’ve been going back and forth with a dear one over money matters, be warned that it may not end soon. Continue to stay calm and stick to your guns.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

June brings some more down time at home. Tend to your nest and show your family how much you love them as only you can do. Then sit back and watch what happens.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

June brings some fun, although slipping away from your duties may not be easy. A family member may want to introduce you to someone who is “just perfect.” GO, and don’t think about what happened last time. Hey, they could be right!

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

In June it’s time to hit the road for adventure. Your escapades will likely be a quick weekend trip or back to a favorite place. Mid-month brings you opportunity to launch a new project which is due to become a favorite among the masses. If you’re trying to end a relationship at month’s end, it may be very costly and difficult.

eagleScorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

June brings a time not to stay at home. Get out and network and share your ideas with others. Don’t be shy about introducing yourself. Take a chance on that lottery ticket in the first half of June, but don’t go overboard. Remember it only takes one ticket to win. Hey, it may be just your time to win.

archerSagittarius (11/23-12/21)

June brings a time not to stay at home. Get out and network and share your ideas with others. Don’t be shy about introducing yourself. Take a chance on that lottery ticket in the first half of June, but don’t go overboard. Remember it only takes one ticket to win. Hey, it may be just your time to win.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

June brings in fun and outings with friends. Mid-month your mission is to lay your cards on the table with others, have conversations stating exactly what you expect from them, and more importantly, what you won’t accept. Financially it’s time to sit down and go over any joint accounts, and don’t sign anything if your unsure or uncomfortable.

water-bearerAquarius (1/20-2/18)

June brings recreation, playmates, and casual lovers. If you’re with someone new, a bit of temptation is coming your way. You can handle it Aquarius. If asked to sign anything on the dotted line, stall – and keep stalling until November.

fishesPisces (2/19-3/20)

June brings the desire to spend time with your family and friends. Duck out of work whenever you can to spend time with them. Complicated financial matters become a bit worse mid-month. The confusing cosmos make it difficult so try to settle anything before the 19th. Be careful with your pocketbook until after July opens. Have patience and put off decisions or you could regret it for a long time.

ANIMAL: SNAKE

SNAKE, come crawling,
There is fire in your eyes.
Bite me, excite me,
I'll learn to realize,

The poison transmuted,
Brings eternal flame.
Open me to heaven,
to heal me again.

Snake medicine is very rare. This initiation involves experiencing and living through multiple snake bites, which allows one to transmute all poisons, be they mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional. The power of snake medicine is the power of creation, for it embodies sexuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction and ascension.

The transmutation of the life-death-rebirth cycle is exemplified by the shedding of Snake's skin. It is the energy of wholeness, cosmic consciousness, and the ability to experience anything willingly and without resistance. It is the knowledge that all things are equal in creation, and that those things which might be experienced as poison can be eaten, ingested, integrated, and transmuted if one has the proper state of mind. Thoth, the Atlantian, who later returned as Hermes and was the Father of Alchemy, used the symbology of two snakes intertwining around a sword to represent healing. Complete understanding and acceptance of the male and female energies within each organism creates a melding of the two into one, thereby producing divine energy.

Snake medicine teaches you on a personal level that you are a divine being. Through accepting all aspects of your life, you can bring about the transmutation of fire medicine. This fire energy, when functioning on the material plane, creates passion, desire, procreation, and physical vitality. On the emotional plane it becomes ambition, creation, resolution, and dreams. On the mental plane it becomes intellect, power, charisma, and leadership. When this snake energy reaches the spiritual plane, it becomes wisdom, understanding, wholeness, and connection to the Great Spirit. May, 2018 represents the symbol of the Snake Medicine.  It is time to transmute some thought, action, or desire so that wholeness may be achieved. This is a heavy magic, but remember, magic is no more than a change in consciousness. Become the Magician of the Enchantress - transmute this energy and accept the power of its Fire.

Hagalaz represents the urge to change. This Rune brings freedom, invention and liberation. The time of Virgo energies 2011 indicate a pressing need within the psyche to break free from constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.

Hagalaz is the Rune of elemental disruption, representing unaccountable weather conditions, sudden storms, winds and events beyond your control. The energies of Virgo will be a time of Awakening although the form in which the awakening takes may vary for each one of us. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, your relationships and beliefs.

Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you at the mercy of the externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening and you are not without power in the situation. The inner strength you have funded until now in your life, is your support and guide at a time when everything you've taken for granted is being challenged.

This time of PISCES 2017 puts us all on notice! Severe changes are on the way! You may sustain loss or damage. A tree may fall on your home, your town may be hit by a tidal wave, or tornadoes, a relationship may fail, plans go wrong, a source of financial supply may dry up. Be forewarned! Be encouraged to understand and accept that what occurs is necessary, called for in your deepest self as a cry for a pressing need for growth.

There is nothing trivial about this RUNE. The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. The term radical discontinuity best describes the action of this, a Cycle of Runes at its most forceful. The Universe and your own Soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.

TAURUS

astrologyline

The May 15th New Moon in Taurus brings a time to begin new projects with some success. This energy can make you feel like a space cadet, but things settle down in a day or so. This energy suggests world wide financial upsets, and a major upheaval within the British Monarchy.

The May 29th Full Moon in Sagittarius comes up on the right side of Mars – making this a LUCKY Full Moon. Put the final touch on long-term projects and brings some relationships to their natural conclusion.

The June 13th New Moon in Gemini brings a Supermoon and a point of initiation. This fun-filled moon encourages us to get out and network, shop locally, and upgrade or try some new technology.

The June 27th Full Moon in Capricorn brings a time to get focused and serious and bring any financial transactions to their conclusion. It’s a time when your karmic debts and financial debts come due. The energy becomes fiery, bold, and more on drama than on the details. This can bring in minor anxiety and stress and it’s best to postpone any conversations or meetings until next week.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

If you don’t have plans to travel, take classes, or expand your horizons it’s time to get busy. In May you’ll crave to take a break from routine through something or someone new and exciting. Expect your money situation to grow, expand and change over the next seven years after Uranus moves into Taurus after the 15th.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

Mercury moves into Taurus on May 13th, so any financial transactions your dealing with should go quite well. Even though money is one of your specialties, Taurus, you may have to table discussions until month’s end. If you’re not sure about your next move, talk with a trusted advisor or elder and don’t make any decisions until after the 20th. You’ve never been known for rushing so don’t start now.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

You’ve been working hard, Gemini but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax and let go once in awhile. A friend’s invite for a dinner party at their house could make this an unforgettable evening. Come on —go for it! Mid-month you could feel that you’ve been seeing someone who isn’t quite honest. You may be right, but do some digging before you dismiss them. If you’re right, just walk away.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

As May opens be sure that you’ve completed all of your work and finished up, because after the 19th Fun arrives. Enjoy it guilt free. An old friend or lover reaches out to you from a distance. Letting this person back into your world could be stressful. Don’t allow yourself to be pressured into anything you don’t want to do.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

May brings a time to pull back on your social life, Leo. Time to stay home and be with family. Mid-month you could receive the pay hike you deserve. Make a budget and cut back on your generosity. Allow someone else to treat you to lunch for a change. Expect some sudden changes with career matters after the 15th.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

If you’ve been looking for a new job or even a temp position to keep your mind active, May brings this to you. You may need to talk some things over with a friend mid-month. Wait until the 18th and you’ll find a lot has changed— for the better. If you’re applying for financial help this month Venus, your planetary purse strings, can make it happen for you after the 15th. Smile pretty, present the financial facts, and have patience. Surprise, anything can change within a wink of an eye.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

If you’ve been trying to schedule some quality time with family and friends, mid-May is an excellent time to do so. It’s good to spend time with light-hearted people who can lift your spirits. May bodes quite well with you for investments. Ample opportunities come forth helping you make some quality cash. Be sure to examine each one carefully.

eagleScorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

You won’t have too much time to relax through May with so much to do, Scorp. Look to Memorial Day Weekend to kick back and relax. The New Moon in Taurus lands in your 7th House of partnerships, possibly bringing you the Soul Mate you desire. Go out there and mingle and perhaps you’ll meet someone delicious. When Mars and Uranus square off on the 16th watch for irritating upsets, your driving, and a mis-directed temper tantrum. Easy now!

archerSagittarius (11/23-12/21)

May brings you attention to finances and you may be putting in a lot of overtime, Sag. The good news is that mid-month you will be introduced to someone who is experienced in this field and can help you in a very big way. Around Memorial Day a part of you that you’ve kept hidden breaks out of hiding. Don’t be shy about letting loose. Once you’ve done it, well, congratulations.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

May brings the desire for a road trip to a luscious and relaxing place. Sure you’ve been busy and overwhelmed with extra work, but a break is just what’s need to regroup and gain more perspective. It wouldn’t be surprising to find that a friend has turned into a love potential. Finances perk up and money that you thought you’d never see again just might turn up. Around the 19th is your lottery ticket day. Good-luck Capricorn.

water-bearerAquarius (1/20-2/18)

May brings a chance to make up for lost time and do some serious partying. You may want to disappear for good, but hold tight. Yes, you’ve been through a lot but handle the responsibilities with a level head, then take off into the sunset for some great times. You may have to lash out at someone who’s offensive and aggressive mid-month. Be careful here Aquarius. If a family member offers you funds around the 22nd, don’t allow your pride to refuse the help. Be humble and accept their support graciously.

fishesPisces (2/19-3/20)

May brings along a sense of humor and enjoyment with family members and friends. You’re either hunting for your Soul Mate or staying at home and snuggling close. Home and garden decisions may need some decisions. Be sure you both agree before making changes. If you can, avoid any purchase of electronics this month, as Uranus changes signs, and it’s better to wait. Both career and family matters call to you over the Memorial Day holiday. However, you’re a great juggler Pisces.

AFFIRMATION
Today I share all with others, and that energy renews my supply ten fold

MEDITATION

  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 just fine, 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 openess 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. Simply take some deep breaths and do the Louis Hay mantra, "I am safe, it's only change."

Think of Ammachi, and meditate on the Yellow Daffodil, one of the first flowers of Spring. You are looking at this delicate flower from afar, as something outside of you. Then bring it inside your heart center and know that it grows within your heart, as is Amma, always! The petals of the Daffodil are slowly opening as you chant your mantras to the Divine, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a light within each heart as well music coming to you from the Daffodil, the flower of spring. 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 and persistence and a progressive Spirit can unlock the magical creativity of your mind.

It is your turn to play the role of trailblazer and courageous leader. Just as feelings of spontaneity and the love of adventure come to life at this time, creating long-term goals and in-depth analysis are alien factors. Be daring when launching new projects, and remember to begin after Mercury goes forward, April 15th. Keep mental burn-out and temper tantrums under control. Remember that the passions of Aries can consume your vital energy in a blaze of self-destruction or empower you into electrifying success.

Based on the Rune (Breakthrough) and Animal (Dragonfly), April 2018 brings a time of reaping what you sow. If you have been working hard, this month brings in some rewards. There may be some situations or issues you have to walk away from, as well as some relationships that will improve this month. Be on guard, as Mercury is retrograde for the first half of the month. Anything new may not last, but enjoy it while you can. Don't sign any contracts or leases this month, because change is sure to upset the agreement. Some more winter weather is possible as April opens, as  well as throughout  Canada and Europe.

From: Medicine Cards by Sams & Carson, published by Bear & Co.

ANIMAL: DRAGONFLY

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 April 2018, which brings us a full harvest, but a warning to watch out for contaminated food products. It is 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 new 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 else's 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 innate 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

BREAKTHROUGH

Dagaz is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Self-Transformation. April of 2018 will mark a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self-change, along with a complete transformation of attitude, 180 degree turn. For some, this transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.

Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured, although not from the present vantage point, predictable. Rely now on inner trust, although the moment may call for you to leap, empty handed, into the void. Confront and vanquish your refusal to allow right action to flow through you. In each lifetime there comes a moment, when, if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. With this Rune - Breakthrough - your warrior nature reveals itself.

If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion to your passage.

A major period of achievement and prosperity is introduced into your life with this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are put on notice to be mindful not to collapse yourself into the future or behave recklessly in your new situation. A lot of hard work can be involved in a time of such transformation. Undertake it - and do it joyfully.

Mercury retrogrades on March 22nd through April 15th

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

. If someone accuses you of rushing or intimidating them in April, step back and think about why you are angry, Aries. On April 15th Mercury turns direct and there’s a New Moon in Aries. This will be a big day for you. Should you charge forward and act on your instincts or wait a day or so. Advice: Take a deep breath and sleep on it. All will work out as it should.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

April brings the time to kick back and relax, especially mid-month. Take time to enjoy events related to music or art. At month’s end, don’t give up on an argument and storm off into the sunset. Take time to look at another’s point of view.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

April brings old friends and lost loved ones back into your life. If someone owes you money and has not repaid you, remind them after the 15th. This time they’ll hear you and get busy paying you back. The end of April brings romantic choices. Time to interview for the position of your “significant other.”

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

April brings an urgent time with relationships. You need to work on either repairing a relationship or cutting the ties that bind. It won't be easy, because this time the Universe is playing for keeps. Don’t think gifts, think heartfelt thoughts and how much you miss them. If you need some help and advice, be brave enough to ask for it. Hang in there career-wise. At least until mid-May,

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

April brings work and little free time. You may be thinking of settling down, finally. What could be better than a warm, loving soul mate who adores you to spend time with? The higher-ups show you recognition at month’s end. Impressing them will be like a walk in the park.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

April brings restrictions with your free time. Work is intense. The good news is that you’re being considered for a promotion. It’s amazing what a nice lunch or pleasant getting-to-know you chat can bring.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

You’ve been putting your nose to the grindstone lately, Libra. If you have some days for time off, be sure to take them. Don’t fight it. You’ve earned it and you know it. The Full Moon at the end of March asks you to open your eyes to your relationship for what it really is. It’s time to be practical. Is this good for you. Take a step back and assess the situation while Mercury is retrograde. You’ll have your answer once it turns direct.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

. The sarcastic Scorpio pulls an April Fool’s joke on someone. Just make sure it’s fun for everyone and not mean-spirited. If you’ve been wanting to tell someone how much you care, now is the time to sit them down, look them in the eye, and start talking. A project you want to move along may hit a delay or roadblock at month’s end.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

April is the perfect time for adventure, especially if you’re happily attached and looking to spice things up. Saturn helps you to understand and get a grip on your finances mid-month. Authorities will be easy to talk with. Begin to develop your need to negotiate, Sag. Someone comes along at month’s end that could be a new love or platonic friend. It’s up to you. Just a little warning here that they could become habit forming.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

. Finding time to relax or play in April could be tough. Try to kick your shoes off every now and then to enjoy the close family members around you. Financial deals go smoothly but don’t sign anything until after Mercury goes direct on the 15th. Thinking about adding a new pet to the family?

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

April brings a break with time away, perhaps over the Easter weekend of April 1st. If you’ve met someone new, take advantage of every lul and slow-moving window to get the show on the road. If you feel depressed at month’s end, tell someone. A friend is willing to listen and could prove very helpful.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

April brings you a charming out-of-towner to get to know. The qualities you admire in them are their spontaneity and willingness to take risks. Enjoy the time, but don’t get too used to their being around, much less attached. Watch your plastic as April progresses. Be cautions and pause to think. After all, didn’t you just wreak havoc with finances last fall? Easy Pisces!

AFFIRMATION
My goal is financial security.

MEDITATION

THE ONENESS I CALL GOD

Whose presence I have recognized,
Whose pleasure or displeasure I have sought,
Has been seeing His life through my eyes.

He hears through my ears,
His breath comes through my breathing,
His intuition I have felt,
Therefore I know!

I know that this body
Which I had thought to be my own,
Is really a Temple to God.
I did not realize this before.

I did not know that this body
Was a Shrine to God.
Not knowing that God experiences life
Through Man ---

One is always seeking God
Somewhere else.
In some person or energy
Apart and aloof from this World.

But all the time,
God is in oneself!

The Sun has entered PISCES

Pisces, the sign of the entwined fish reminds you to build your emotional strength and replace the urge to escape reality and live in a dream world. As the final water sign of the Zodiac, Pisces give you a rich inner life with a vivid imagination, artistic creativity and psychic attunement. Without a specific, mundane direction, indecision can become a daily plague and memories of past failures can haunt your consciousness. By eliminating cranky notions and mental chaos, enlightenment can come as a deeply entrenched new aspect of your life, which will bring the path to simplicity and the gift of the key to Divine Understanding. Strive to be sympathetic to the suffering millions and share your healing love Universally. Unswerving faith in your self and the divine forces bring you sustenance from the invisible powers, which is the ultimate reward in the cycle of soul searching, Universal love and warmhearted compassion.

As February, 2018 draws to a close, we are ready for brighter, spring-like days. But the March winds can blow a fast chill on us. Although we will have an early Spring, we must wait a little longer for the green buds and spring flowers to appear. March reminds you to be careful of the economy and to begin to conserve resources. We have just left two eclipses and some of our tension and woes behind. As we head towards summer, there is a delightful promise of better days ahead.

Faith is the magical elixir of Pisces, that can vanquish hesitation, paralyzing anxiety, and inner qualms. It can transform your life, offering increased psychic receptivity, Universal love, and Divine enlightenment. Compassion is essential now that you are in the final phase of your zodiac journey. Mid-month Aries brings the Spring energies and new beginnings as well as new growth. Altruism must take precedence over egotism, as empathy for humanity replaces individual pride and the competitive impulse. Understanding, as a tool for accepting life's mysteries, should be the special gift of every Piscean and it can be yours as well. No matter what your sun-sign is this solar cycle can make you an imaginative visionary with the mastery to benefit others in a variety of ways.

From: Medicine Cards by Sams & Carson, published by Bear & Co.

FROG: Cleansing
Sing, Frog, sing,
Call the rains,
Quench the dryness,
Cleanse the earth,
Then fill me up again.

Frog sings the songs that bring the rain and make the road dirt more bearable. Frog medicine is akin to water energy, and the East on the medicine wheel. Frog teaches us to honor our tears, for they cleanse the soul. All water rites belong to Frog, including the initiations by water.

Water prepares and cleanses the body for sacred ceremony. It is the element we understand best in the womb. Frog, like ourselves, is a pollywog in the fetal waters, and only learns to hop after it experiences the world of fluidity.

The transformation into adulthood prepares Frog for its power to call in waters of the skies: the rain. In knowing the element of water, Frog can sing the song that calls the rain to the Earth. When the ponds are dry, Frog calls upon the Thunder Beings to cleanse and replenish the Earth with water. Like Frog, we are asked to know when it is time to refresh, purify, and refill the coffers of the soul.

Frog has hopped into the vibrations of March 2018, in the water sign of Pisces, and its "ribet" may be calling in the cleansing you need. If you were to look at where you are today, would you use any of the following words to describe your condition: tired, overloaded, frustrated, harried, guilty, itchy, nervous, at a loss, empty, or weakened? If so take a break and allow yourself to bathe in the waters of Frog medicine. This could mean a long relaxing bath, disconnecting the phone, yelling "stop" or simply taking three deep, cleansing breaths.

The key thought is to find a way to rid yourself of distractions and to replace the mud with clear energy. Then replenish your parched spirit, body and mind. An ability of Frog medicine people is to give support and energy where it is needed. A Frog medicine person can clean and clear any negativity from any environment. Many mediums or clairvoyants who work with "cleaning" haunted houses carry Frog medicine. Many of the worlds "seers" use water on their hands when tapping into the other realms of reality due to water's super-conductive nature.

In Myan and Aztec shamanistic practices, the Shaman places water in his or her mouth and sprays it over the body of a patient to clear away any negative energy. This is done while holding the thought of Frog firmly in the mind so that healing may occur and the patient may be replenished with positive energy. Sometimes dried and stuffed frogs are also used to guard the person's body during the session.

Frog speaks of new life and harmony through its rain song. The deep tones of frog's "ribet" are said to be a call to the Thunder Beings; thunder, lightening and rain. The "ribet" is the heartbeat that comes into harmony with Father Sky and calls for the replenishment needed. Call to Frog and find the peace and joy of taking time to give to yourself. A part of this giving is cleansing yourself of any person, place, or thing that does not contribute to your new state of serenity and replenishment.

CRYSTAL: Aquamarine — Jasper

Aquamarine StoneAQUAMARINE - A variety of beryl. Calms the nerves, reduces fluid retentions, strengthens kidneys, liver, spleen, thyroid. Purifies the body.

RUNE of the Month - THE SELF

MANNAZ — The Self

Mannaz represents the starting point which is the Self. Its essence is water, the sign of PISCES.  Only clarity and the willingness to change is effective now. A correct relationship with yourself is primary, for from this flows all possible correct relationships with others and with the Divine

Remain modest - that is the Oracle's counsel. Regardless of how great may be your merit, be yielding and devoted, moderate and correct, for then you have a true direction for your way of life. Be in the world but not a part of it. That is implicit here, however do not be closed, or narrow, or judging. Remain receptive to impulses flowing from the Divine within and without. Here you might contemplate the words from Hamlet: "To thine own self be true." These words also may be contemplated, "strive to live the ordinary life in a non-ordinary way." Remember at all times what is coming to be and passing away, and focus on that which abides. Nothing less is called for from within you now. MARCH will be a time of major growth and rectification, and as a rule rectification must come before progress.

This is not a time for trying to gain credit for accomplishments, but rather to seek to fulfill the time span content to do your tasks for the task's sake, which is the meaning of imminent activity. This will be more of a problem for those whose eyes are always on the goal than for those who have not forgotten how to play and can more easily and readily lose themselves in doing the work for its own sake. Herein lies the secret of experiencing a true presence.

If you take Mannaz, the Rune of Self, and cut it down the middle you have the Rune for Joy with its mirror image. There is a subtle caution here against carelessness. The dancing acrobatic energy of balancing is called for in March, 2018. The Self is required to balance within the Self. Do Nothing in excess was the second phrase written over the temple in Delphi. The first phrase was know thyself. With these words the order of the Runes begin.

Above all - this month of March - do not give yourself airs. The momentum of past habits is the challenge here. In the life of Spirit you are always at the beginning.

astrologyline

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

You feel like doing whatever you think is best without regard for others. You hate restraints Aries. You’re into doing what comes naturally. With family members this may be okay, but hold your tongue with higher-ups. You can expect some loving admirers to look your way without much effort. Mercury retrogrades on the 22nd so expect traffic jams, or travel problems to slow you down.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

Getting yourself outside, preferably by a lake or ocean front, will be extremely therapeutic, Taurus. Passion and romance are strong for you in March. Arguments over finances are also possible so watch out for a shouting match. Although you may win, just make sure you don’t lose anything precious in the process.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

March brings time for a break and some fun. Lot’s of friends will want to join you, so get out the list and start calling. You may feel a bit of resentment or a grudge with a loved one as mercury retrogrades on the 22nd. Well Gemini, you have three weeks to think things over. You can either ditch the grudge and get over it, or make a clean break. The choice is always yours.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

Tread cautiously with love as March opens, Cancer. You may get into a confrontation with a higher-up over finances mid-month. If you’re not careful a long term feud could ensue. Take a deep breath, tread carefully. It may not be easy, but it has to be done. If you’re at odds with elders and superiors, sit down and talk things through before mercury retrogrades. Don’t allow things to linger into that time frame.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

You’re wanting to hit the road and travel as March opens Leo. If you can’t manage that right now, then planning a summer vacation will lift your spirits. On an impulse you could decide to take on a new lover. If already attached, then think long and hard about making any changes. If single, this could be what “love at first sight” is made of. Be careful of petty fights at month’s end.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

You want to simply take off to far away places and have fun as March opens, Virgo. It should be easy to cover your bases and do just that. Time to put away those shy glances and get busy with love and attraction. Make your intentions known and you’ll get a lot further down the road of establishing a new relationship. Financial matters become delayed as Mercury retrogrades on the 22nd. Have patience, it won’t be easy, but have a talk with the people involved.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

You’ve been putting your nose to the grindstone lately, Libra. If you have some days for time off, be sure to take them. Don’t fight it. You’ve earned it and you know it. The Full Moon at the end of March asks you to open your eyes to your relationship for what it really is. It’s time to be practical. Is this good for you. Take a step back and assess the situation while Mercury is retrograde. You’ll have your answer once it turns direct.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

You help organize a big event in March, Scorpio. It’s hard work, but as its going along, you step back and see the success accomplished. Your heard could feel full with delight. You’re feeling red-hot and passionate this month, but don’t come on too strong. You don’t want to scare anyone away. That defeats the purpose.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

Your talents come into the spotlight as March opens, Sag. The higher-ups finally begin to notice you. Your love life gets a bit spicy as March moves along. You could become involved with some intrigue that is deliciously mysterious. Be wary about what could lure you away from your daily routine.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

March brings exciting adventure to Capricorns. Whether it’s a romantic tryst or trying something you’ve always wanted to do, it promises to be interesting and fun. It’s been intense lately, and you are due some playtime. A family member may be in the way of your new love focus. Let them know they’re safe and that you care for them as well. Be cautious with your plastic at month’s end least you go after something a bit pricey without regard of consequence

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

If you need to take some time off, better plan it for early March because it gets more difficult later. You could be romantically attracted to a current friend as the month progresses. It may not be a “forever” thing but the spiritual warmth exchanged makes it all worthwhile. Don’t miss out. Mercury retrogrades on the 22nd causing all kinds of periods of frustration for three weeks. Try to have some patience and find some positive distractions.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

March is a watery month for Pisces, so get outside by a lake or ocean and feel the early spring breezes. Don’t forget about art, music, and your metaphysical ventures. The Full Moon on March 1st asks you to open your eyes about some relationship issues. They need to be worked out, for good or for ill. It may be time to make a change. Mercury retrogrades on the 22nd in your house of finances. You may need to wait on a major purchase. Also, hold on to your receipts, especially with electronic purchases.

AFFIRMATION

Knowledge is my pathway bringing freedom and success.

MEDITATION


Now withdraw into the rose center of your heart. Meditate on the perfect rose. The rose of twelve petals lies at the temple of your heart. It's petals are opening to the sun - every petal gleaming and glowing with the light. There is an ineffable light in the heart of the rose.

Become enfolded within these petals, in a soft pearly light. You are within the temple of the rose, the Sun pours down into the heart—opening up the doorway to all empowering, unconditional Love. You are a part of this radiance and one with all of humanity, within the heart of the ROSE.

Allow the light from the Masters show how to live divinely and to rise above the dualities of this world and find peace within. Become a giver of peace and love to others. By dwelling on these higher energies and striving to emulate the qualities expressed, you will open your heart to absorb more deeply the Spirit manifested in all God-united souls. Let the strength that upholds the Universe filled your being filling you with everlasting love. Smell the fragrance emitting from the center of the rose and fill yourself up with the radiance of the Universe.

May God grant me Health, Protection, and Guidance.

The Sun has entered AQUARIUS

Aquarius, you are the Eleventh Sign of the Zodiac. After the establishment and structure of the energies of Capricorn, it is your job to make sure that these structures blend, mix and are flexible with the needs of the people they are meant to serve. In the Northern Hemisphere, yours is the month of the deepest part of winter, which can be most unrelenting. The cold, dry air crackles with electricity. Yet the light of Spring is returning, most perceptibly, along with signs of life, although subtle, which stirs our hopes that Spring will arrive soon. In the Western Zodiac yours is the sign of the Water Bearer, although his jugs were more likely to be filled with air, which is your element. In early Babylonian times your constellation was called the "Giant," suggesting a great being who knows all and sees all. You are likely to be aware of any political situation since you represent group dynamics. You may now value your role as a detached outsider, especially if you feel there is corruption with group leaders. However, you will be completely devoted to a group that fulfills its stated objectives - when the objectives are those you firmly believe in. Your beliefs generally center around the rights of individuals and the advancement of knowledge. You also tend to assert your own individuality, even if it means working against your own interests. (It is said that those with an Aquarian Moon are most cold and detached.) Your greatest shortcoming is an automatic reaction against any rules, even those that are for your true benefit. Above all, your strong freedom seeking instincts will force you to stand up for yourself as well as for the rights of others. Used wisely, this drive can serve both yourself and those you influence.

(This information goes for AQUARIUS Sun Sign – Moon Sign
as well as the Rising Sign.)

ANIMAL: THE LYNX — Secrets

Lynx...
You know the secrets
So very well,
The dreamtime and the magic,
But you never tell.

May I learn to hold  my tongue,
And observe like the Sphinx,
Powerful, yet silent,
The medicine of the Lynx.

It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask the Lynx. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get the silent Lynx to speak. To be confronted by the powerful medicine of the Lynx signifies that you do not know something about yourself or others. (On a larger scale, it could reflect secrets of someone in politics, Hollywood, or someone else, or the government coming out into the open to correct some fake news.)

Lynx is the keeper of secrets of lost magical systems and of occult knowledge. Lynx has the ability to move through time and space, and go into the Great Silence for knowledge to unravel any mystery. Lynx is not the guardian of secrets but, instead, the knower of secrets. The problem lies in getting the Lynx to choose to instruct you. He or she would rather be off chasing a bird or kicking sand in your face rather then running an instruction class or running circles around you.

Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance. If this medicine is strong in you, you will receive mental pictures concerning other people and the exact things they have hidden, either from themselves, from others, or from you. You will see their fears, their lies, or their self-deception, (or Ego.) You will also know where they have the hidden treasure, or if there is any. You never speak of these revelations or of how you know of them - you just know!

The only way you can coax information about yourself from the Lynx medicine person, (in case you have forgotten where you hid the treasure), is to respect the practices of his or her traditions, and honor the knowledge given. If you go to a Gypsy with Lynx medicine (knowledge), you must pay respect by giving them money for the reading. If you go to a Choctaw medicine person, he or she will reach into your mid-section, or use other traditional methods to help you. A blanket or tobacco should be given in exchange for the medicine they have performed for you. This operative is known as the law of the Lynx people, or an equal exchange of energy, to create a lasting balance, and is practiced by Native American, Gypsy, Sufi, Hindu, and Egyptian cultures, among others.

The Lynx medicine permeates the month of February 2018, and you can be sure that secrets are afloat. This is the time to meditate and listen to your higher self. Be still and pay attention to the messages your receive either in the form of mental pictures of singing, or perhaps by whispering into your ear. You could receive this information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth will be signalling you in some manner.

When Lynx shows up at your door, listen up! Brother or Sister Lynx can teach you of your special personal power and many things you have forgotten about yourself. Lynx can lead you to lost treasures, and lead you to forgotten brotherhoods or sisterhoods.

Some people believe that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt was not a Lion but a Lynx. This Lynx does not speak very much; rather, with an enigmatic smile, the great cat watches over the sands of forever.

FEBRUARY CRYSTAL:  AMETHYST and CITRIENE

AMETHYST: A variety of quartz which brings to you spiritual awareness. Strengthens the endocrine and immune systems. Enhances right brain activity, helps memory and activates the pineal and pituitary glands. A powerful blood cleanser and energizer. Helps with mental disorders and creates a veil of protection. Physical representative of the Violet Ray of alchemy and transformation. Cuts through illusion. Enhances your psychic abilities and is excellent to use while meditating. Aids in your channeling abilities. Amethyst is calming, strong, protective and aids with healing. Brings Divine Love, inspiration, and strengthens intuition and telepathy.

CITRIENE: Another variety of quartz.  Good for the kidneys, colon, liver, gallbladder, digestive tract, heart. Helps with tissue regeneration so is excellent to use after any type of surgery. Detoxifies the system. Enhances the body's healing energies and diminishes any self-destructive tendencies.  Helps with depression. Creates a powerful alignment to your Blessed Higher Self and Intuitive Guides.  Brings lightheartedness, cheerfulness, joy and faith. Warning - this stone may attract abundance to you!

RUNE of the Month - Joy — Wunjo

RUNE-12Joy

JOY

Wunjo is the Rune of the fruit bearing branch and quite appropriate as we enter the month of February, with the ice and snow falling, cleansing the Earth to prepare for Spring, which brings us new growth and new beginnings.  With the beginning of a new energy, the term of travail is ended and you have come in to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive its blessings, whether they be in material gain, your emotional life or in a heightened sense of your own well-being. This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition. Now you can rejoice at having been carried across the gap by the Tao, the Holy Spirit.

Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy that was blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths. The Soul is illuminated from within at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.

There is a new clarity, which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely that you submit, for Wunjo is a Rune of restoration, causing the Self to become properly aligned with the Blessed Higher Self where you will enter into the "State of Being."

Things may be slow in coming to fruition. The process of birth is long and arduous with fears for the safety of the child within. A crisis, a difficult passage, if ever so brief, may be at hand. Consideration and deliberation are called for, because light and shadow still exist and are intermixed, so doubt and sarcasim may interfere with joyousness if this period is not understood as a timely process for your Soul growth. Stop your anxiety and ask yourself whether you possess the virtues of seriousness, sincerity, and emptiness. To possess these virtues is to also have tranquility, which is the path to clarity, patience, and perserverance.

Seen in the light of truth, the pathway of life is a test. Stay focused in the present, remaining sincere towards others, trusting your process, and you will know that you cannot fail.

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.

STARGAZING FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Dandelion in 3 piece mirror representing the past, present and future

Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.

AQUARIUS

The February 15th New Moon in Aquarius brings a partial solar eclipse. Although the energies of a partial eclipse is not as strong as a full one, it still generates an intense energy, so it’s not a time to make any important decisions or have any surgery or medical procedures.

There is no Full Moon in February

AQUARIUS — Element:  Air  Quality: Fixed  Polarity:  Masculine Planetary Ruler:  Uranus - Rules - 11th House   Focus:  Unconventional

The Sun has entered AQUARIUS

2018 is an ideal time for you to broaden your horizons as well as your knowledge. Consider returning to school or begin a degree or certification program if your career will benefit from the effort. You can also take a specialized class to gain a specific skill. Share your knowledge by presenting a seminar at you company or conference center, or help teach adults to read. In 2018 you're likely to develop an interest in other cultures and have the motivation to learn the language or traditions of another country, or research your roots and travel to your ancestral home.

You will be working with groups and organizations this year. You may be encouraged to share humanitarian views with others, with the goal of broadening their perspectives, and possibly become involved in hands-on volunteer efforts in another country.

Now is the time to organize your financial records and to free yourself and your space from unusable items, clothing you haven't worn in the last two years, and all the stuff that tends o pile up in your storage spaces.

Lastly, your subconscious will be active at times, revealing long-forgotten events from which you can gain new insights into your personality, relationships, and worldly goals. Your intuition will become stronger, and you may suddenly realize that the people you knew well are not really the people you thought them to be. Take the time to clear out the old and make way for the new, so go with it when the urge strikes to transform your surroundings, and even yourself. Everyone can benefit from a healthier lifestyle, and now is the time to take charge and rely on the inner strength provided by these energies to get into shape, change your diet, and let go of bad habits.

February also brings an opportunity to learn and experience something new. An interesting, charming, and quite unusual friend enters the picture. You’ll definitely be enticed, but don’t get too involved too quickly. Do your best to have fun while holding tight to your purse strings. If not, then at least do your best to be “good.”

 Pisces (2/19-3/20)

You are very sensitive for the feelings of others but do you pay attention to your own emotions? Remember now that it’s especially important to protect your finances. February brings in ease, and you’ll want to treat yourself well. Jupiter may send along some extra cash your way, so treat yourself to some extra warm PJ’s. Rest, eat well, and avoid a cold or flu. February is love month so get out there and strut your stuff. You’ll get some positive results. Keeping track of your finances is important at the New Moon Solar Eclipse. This could be a challenge because of some unrealistic spending for a "big ticket" item. Bring a realistic and grounded friend along when you shop to help you watch the purse strings. Focus on a new direction and go for it! Dream big and aim high.
