The Life That Makes All Things New

As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.

If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in, you will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, "God is very good to me." You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.

This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days - and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase in you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.

Pray and and meditate on the yellow golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, always! The petals of this divine flower are slowly opening as you chant your prayers, opening to 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 flowers. The light from above and the light from the flower blend as one...as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love

The Sun has entered TAURUS

Earthy and fixed Solar TAURUS, sets you in rhythm with all that is stable and steadfast. This is a good time to promote productivity in the realms of personal finance, artistic ingenuity, and animal care taking. Put your head, heart and hands into meaningful creative work and self-assurance will follow. Symbolized by the Bull, Taurus offers tenacity enhanced by patience. By forsaking laziness, lethargy, and obstinacy, you can reap the rewards of discipline and structure. Above all, break free from attachment to external material possessions by focusing on your inner beauty. Be an advocate for graceful simplicity.

Although Mercury retrograde is usually a Stargazer's favorite whipping boy, there are more subtle signs and planets to pay attention to as well. There is an exception though. The North Node of the Moon is not only considered an indicator of good fortune, but it, and its counterpart, the South Node only moves backwards. This month the nodes of the Moon change signs, always an important event. On May 9, 2017 the North Node will move out of Virgo into Leo/Aquarius. For the next eighteen months it will move through Leo until it moves back into Cancer on November 7th, 2018. Leo, of course, is the sign of nobility. People born under the sign of Leo often carry themselves with a demeanor that sets themselves apart from others. Leo natives act as if they were born to rule, and they think highly of themselves and their abilities. These people feel as if they must come first, can be very stubborn, and have to have their own way both at work and at home. (Donald Trump's rising sign is 28 degrees Leo)

Aquarius is the sign of tolerance and humanitarianism, and its natives often devote their time to worthy causes. They also think highly of themselves and their abilities, can be highly stubborn, especially with family, friends, and co-workers. Both Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs, so when these two people meet they are likely to go head to head, digging in their heels, with each one refusing to give in to the others.

During this transit - the key lesson will be just how much do you want to give to yourself, and just how much do you want to give to others.

Based on the Rune (Journey) and Animal (Horse), May 2017 brings a time of  .

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

ANIMAL: HORSE

Mighty Horse — Power to run
Across the open plains,
Or to bring the vision of the shields
Dancing in purple dream rain.

“Stealing horses is stealing power,” was a statement made frequently in historic native America and a reference to the esteemed role in which the horse played in the native cultures.

The horse represents physical power as well as unearthly power. In Shamanic practices throughout the world, Horse enables the Shaman to fly through the air and reach heaven.

Humanity made a great leap forward when Horse was domesticated. a discovery akin to fire. Before Horse, humans were earthbound, heavy-laden , and slow creatures indeed. Once humans climbed on Horse’s back, they were as fast and free as the wind.  They could carry burdens for great distances with ease.  Through their special relationship with Horse, humans altered their self-concept beyond measure. Horse was the first animal medicine of civilization. Humanity owes an incalculable debt to Horse and to the new medicine it brought. It would be a long walk to see one’s brother or sister if Horse had not welcomed the two-legged rider upon his back.

Today we measure the capacity of engines with the term “horsepower,” a reminder of the days when Horse was an honored and highly -prized partner with humanity.

Dreamwalker, a medicine man, was walking across the plains to visit the Arapho Nation. He carried with him his pipe. The feather in his long, black hair pointed to the ground, making him a man of peace. Over the rise of a hill, Dreamwalker saw a herd of wild mustangs running toward him

Black Stallion approached him and asked him if he was seeking an answer to his journey. Black Stallion said, “I am from the Void where your Answer lives. Ride on my back and know the power of entering the Darkness and finding the Light.”  Dreamwalker  thanked Black Stallion, and agreed to visit him when his medicine was needed in the Dreamtime.

Yellow Stallion approached Dreamwalker next and offered to take him to the East where Illumination lives. Dreamwalker could share the answers he found there to teach and illuminate others. Once again, Dreamalker thanked Yellow Stallion and said that he would use these gifts of power on his journey.

Red Stallion approached, rearing playfully. He told Dreamwalker of the joys of the balancing work and heavy medicine with the joyful experience of play. He reminded Dreamwalker that he could better hold the attention of those he taught when humor was integrated into the lesson. Dreamwalker thanked him and promised to remember the gift of joy.

Dreamwalker was nearing his destination. The Arapaho Nation was close at hand. White Stallion came to the front of the herd. Dreamwalker mounted White Stallion’s back. White Stallion was the message carrier for all the other horses, and represented wisdom in power. This magnificent horse was the embodiment of the balanced medicine shield. “No abuse of power will ever lead to wisdom,” White Stallion said. “You, Dreamwalker, have made this journey to heal a brother in need, to share the sacred pipe, and to heal Mother Earth. You have the knowledge through humility that you are an instrument of Great Spirit. As I carry you on my back, you carry the needs of other people on yours. In wisdom, you understand that power is not given lightly but awarded to those who are willing to carry the responsibility in a balanced manner.

Dreamwalker, the Shaman, had been healed by this visit of wild horses, and knew his purpose of coming to the Arapaho was to share this gift with them.

In understanding the power of the Horse, you may see how to strive for a balanced medicine shield. True power is wisdom found in remembering your total journey. Wisdom comes from remembering pathways  you have walked in another person’s moccasins. Compassion, caring, searching, loving and sharing your gifts, talents , and abilities are the gateways to power.

RUNE OF THE MONTH

JOURNEY
A Journey, Communication, Union, Reunion

Raido is concerned with communication, with the attunement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of a journey when what is above and what is below unite and become one mind. This journey is the journey of the Soul. Moreover, the approach of that which is realized from innermost sentiment rather than the force of circumstances. A simple prayer for the journey of the Soul is: I will to do Thy will.

Such a simple form of prayer is proper, it seems, on almost any occasion. It is a suitable preamble, in particular, to healing. Raido is another of the Runes in the Cycle of Self-Transformation.

Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time we must remember that we are not intended to rely entirely upon our own power, but instead to ask what is right action. Ask through prayer and meditation, through addressing your own knowing, your body and the connection to your Blessed Higher Self knowing, the Witness Self, the Teacher Within. Once you are clear, then you can neutralize your refusal to allow the right course of action to flow through you. Not intent on movement, be content to wait. While you wait, keep on removing your resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from trying to make it all happen disappears.

As always, this journey is towards self-healing and unity. This can include nations with nations, as the Middle-East conflicts build to a dangerous state of affairs. The planet and each one of us are concerend here with nothing less than an unobstructed, perfect union. However, this union with Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Keep within your limits. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self towards the Self.

Trust your own Process _ that is the essence of this Rune. Keep on cutting away the illusions. Stand apart from like-minded others. The notion of safety and strength in numbers does not apply at this time. This part of your soul journey cannot be shared. Innermost feeling, spontaneosly expressed, is the only right action now. This Rune urges you to undertake your journey, your quest _ and if you have aleady begun _ focus and continue.

This Rune also asks you to be put on notice, particularly with your personal relationships. At this time, ruptures are more likely than reconcilations. Effort will be required on your part. Keep your good humor; whatever happens, how you respond is up to you, and will set the way.

The requirements of your Soul process may totally disrupt what you had intended for yourself this month. Hoped-for outcomes may elude you. Yet, what you may regard as detours, inconviences, disruptions, blockages and even failures or deaths will actually be re-routing opportunities for you, with union and reunion the only abiding destination.

Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

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!)

TAURUS

The May 10th Full Moon in Scorpio brings a very busy time right up through Mother’s Day. This should bring in some important changes because Pluto is in harmony with the Sun. Allow outmoded relationships to wind down and finish up your projects.

May 25th New Moon in Gemini brings a tough time for love and finances because it brings obsession, dangerous power plays, and dead-end relationships that burn hot and heavy, but end up in dying embers.

The Spring Equinox Leads us to New Beginnings – Flowers, Pets, and Spring.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Relaxing may be difficult this month, but only for fabulous reasons. Your personal appearance makes you the hot commodity. If you have a partner, you may be getting ready to tie the knot, so be prepared to have that conversation. Your finances have strengthened and you can charm anyone to sell you just about anything at your price.

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

You are the star of the show and at the top of everyone’s guest list. A full night’s sleep may be hard to come by, but you love it. Just make yourself a fresh cup of coffee and move on to your next social engagement. A new job, bonus, or financial luck comes to you at month’s end.

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

You have been busy, busy, busy for several months now, but that’s about to change. May brings some R & R time. A friend or co-worker could begin to appeal to you on a deeper level. You’re not in the mood to do much socializing, but even take-out can get expensive. Time to get back to cooking?

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

May brings a slow down for you, Cancer. Time to stop the running out, curl up and relish in your home pleasures. Your emotions will be running high and you may choose to step back a bit before you say something you’ll regret. Everything you’ve been waiting for career-wise is about to happen at month’s end, but a few details still need to be attended to. Sit tight just a bit longer.

Leo (7/23-8/22)

A tug of war between your duties at home and your career will have you at your wits end this month, Leo. You’re building a name for yourself, and as you know, that takes love, time and devotion. Your mission is to find a way to get the message across to everyone who’s complaining about not getting to see you. If they don’t listen to reason, just do what you have to do.

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

You are feeling an urge to close the gap between you and someone you adore. A surprise trip may be in order, or you can send them a ticket to come to you. You deal with authority figures mid-month. You’re out to make your name and skills known. However, don’t expect it to happen without a challenge.

Libra (9/23-10/22)

If there’s something you’ve always wanted to try that is a little bit risky, you may want to try it this month, Libra. Bungee jumping? Really? It’s possible to meet up with friends who moved far away. Is there an old lover who still isn’t over you? Don’t tease if you don’t really mean it.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

May brings the strength for you to keep a steady course, Scorpio. If problems come up, you’ll know who to see, what to ask for, and what to expect. Also, your financial senses are especially keen right now. Be careful, as arguments could come up regarding financial agreements.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

May brings inspiration to flirt a little and catch up with some old time friendships. It’s time to get out there and mingle. Yes, that raise or promotion you’ve been waiting for is likely just around the corner. You’re ready for more responsibility. A secret romance or other matter comes out into the open at the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 10th. If you’re not ready for public exposure, slow it down. June puts travel and education on the agenda.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

If you’ve partnered with someone at work, and it’s not a good fit, don’t pretend that all is well. Mention it to your co-worker, and perhaps you can work everything out. Lots of luck arrives mid-month, Cap. The Universe has your back with any calculated risks you may need to take. Any attempt for you to show your skills will be much appreciated.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

This month you’ll continue the socializing but with some pretty darn fascinating, new acquaintances. Have fun, but don’t forget the tried and true ones who always have your back. You may want to become involved with someone who is quite independent who you hardly know. Sound Fabulous? Be careful, this may be a someone who you’ll want to keep around. Watch your money and plastic and resist any form of binge spending.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

It seems as if everyone has been able to put their disputes and disagreements aside for this month Pisces. Folks will actually be able to agree on something. Be careful not to overdue the shopping mid-month, Pisces. Set yourself a limit or take a friend with you to the mall. Perhaps they will talk some sense into you. A friend may hit rock bottom and need your help at month’s end.

AFFIRMATION

Being true to yourself is what really counts, and this year I am putting that first.

MEDITATION

A LIVING PRESENCE

I remain locked within the wings
Of my Beloved Master.
Held in the arms of Spirits
everywhereness,
Listening to His symphony of creation
Beholding the hidden wondrous vision.

Yet not oblivious to all of you
I watch your movements with a single eye.
I behold you with mothering tenderness
As you walk with life through the tall grass
Smelling the crimson rose with delight.

When the blush of love brings you pleasure
I feel you caressed with an enfolding breeze.
To relieve your worries and fears
You will be enwrapped in the sun's warmth
When the chill of lonliness strays into your heart.

When you gaze at the ocean wave
You look into the eyes of God.
Unite with your Beloved on the altar
of the Horizon
Canopied with the silver rays of azure
Come into the warm, hazy sanctuary.

He shall not speak except through your reason,
Not scold except through your conscience.
Be persuaded through the power of your Love
And your heart's longing to seek the Spirit  only
With the song of your Soul,
enjoy His Love alone.

Forget me watching if you will
But not my Beloved.
For in remembering Him - you cannot forget me!

—Elizabeth Joyce 3.21.94

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.

The Spring Equinox Leads us to New Beginnings - Flowers, Pets, Easter and Spring.

The Sun has entered AIRES

Symbolized by the Ram, Aries initiates the energies following the Vernal Spring Equinox. Regardless of your personal Sun-sign, play the role of the pioneer and chieftain, the leader in unknown waters, as Aries represents. Imagine yourself to be a seed in the ground of Spring, sprouting as a dynamic vessel of life, reaching upward to absorb the powerful rays of the sun. Spontaneity, assertion, and a great love of adventure are natural expressions of Aries. However, steer clear of immaturity, selfishness, and reckless pursuits. Aries is the first of the three Fire Signs, with a flair for the dramatic, but fatigue and rushed energies can extinguish even the strongest flame. Remember that energy and persistence and a progressive spirit can unlock the magical creativity of your mind.

You sparkle and shine in the spotlight this month, Aries. Step out with confidence and pursue your dreams, Bright ideas and new directions are featured, but back up your sudden impulses with facts, and balance your spring optimism with reality. If in doubt, seek advice from a friend or professional.

A close relationship could reach a turning point at the New Moon is Aries on March 27th. But a chance encounter at month's end could spark a whirlwind romance or an instantaneous friendship with a soul mate as Venus in Aries connects you with intriguing people. (comes out of retrograde on April 15th) Be cautious with investments and spending, and resist the pressure if you are asked for a loan or donation. All that will change at month's end when you could earn a raise, bonus, or promotion, and/or receive a long-awaited payment or settlement.

ANIMAL: THE OTTER

OTTER: WOMEN MEDICINE
Otter, so playful
Coquettes by the stream
The medicine of woman
The realized dream

The medicine brought to us by Otter are the lessons of female energy.  A timely animal for the Aries/Taurus month of April, 2017. This energy applies to both men and women, as all of us have the female, or gentle, intuitive side. The Otter's hide was very often used to make medicine bags for powerful tribal women, because it represents balanced female energy

Otter is very caring for its young, and will play for hours, performing all types of acrobatics. It lives on land, but always builds its home near water. The elements of earth and water are the female elements. At home in both of these elements, Otter is the personification of femininity; long, sleek, and graceful, Otter is the true coquette or flirt of the animal world.

Otter is always on the move and very curious. Unlike other animals, Otter will not start a fight unless it is attacked first. This joyful little creature is adventuresome and assumes that all other creatures are friendly - until proven otherwise.

These character traits are the beauty of a balanced female side, the side of ourselves that creates a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions. Otter teaches us that balanced female energy is not jealous or catty. It is sisterhood, content to enjoy and share the good fortune of others. Anchored in the understanding that all accomplishments are worthwhile for the whole tribe, Otter people express joy for others

Long ago, in tribal law, if a woman was widowed, her sister would offer her own husband to the widow as a lover, to keep her from drying up and not using her creative energies. This is Otter medicine too. Envy, or the fear of being replaced, has no space in Otter's balanced understanding of sharing goodness.

Woman energy without games or control is a beautiful experience. It is the freeness of love without jealousy. It is the joy of loving other people's children and their accomplishments as much as you love your own.

It may be time to examine your feelings about sharing the bounty of your life with others. Otter may be saying that the finer qualities of woman need to be striven for in both men and women so that a unity of spirit can be achieved. This would involve the destruction of jealousy and of all the acts of anger which stem from fear. It would mean keeping a Hawk-eye on your EGO and maintaining a total trust. It would mean a world full of people coming together to honor the right or each person to BE!

In April the feminine energies - have brought Otter - which may be telling you to become the playful child and simply allow things to unfold in your life. It may be time to stop your addiction to worrying. Otter also teaches us the importance of not hanging onto material things which would bind you or become a burden. In looking how you can learn from Otter's habits, you might look at joyousness of the receptive side of your nature. Have you given yourself a gift recently? Have you received any intuitive messages in your meditations? Become Otter and move gently into the river of life. Flow with the waters of the Universe...this is the way of balanced female-receptive energy. Honor it! In doing so, you will discover the magnificent power of woman.

CRYSTAL: Diamond, Clear Quartz

Diamond - Enhances brain functions. (Aries rules the head). Aids alignment of cranial bones. Breaks up blockages in Crown Chakra, as well as the personality. The Diamond rules the 12th Dimension and is the Master Healer! It instantly dispels negativity. Purifies physical and the etheric/universal bodies. Reflects will and the power aspects of God. Enhances full spectrum of energies in mind/body/spirit. Alignment to the Higher Self. Creates abundance, innocence, purity, faithfulness.

Clear Quartz - Enhances the crystaline properties of the blood, body and mind. Ruler of the 8th Chakra, Clear Quartz activates and enhances the pineal and pituitary glands and stimulates brain functions. Creates emotional balance. Amplifies thought forms. Has a full spectrum of energy and activates all levels of consciousness. Dispels negativity in the energy field within the environment. Receives, activates, stores, transmits and amplifies energy. Excellent for Meditation. Enhances Higher Self and inter-dimensional communications with Spirit Guides and your Angels. Cleanses and clears all Chakras, enhancing the color vibrations in each one. Dissolves and removes emotional blocks to growth, progress, and success. Helps to activate the opening of the 9th Chakra. (Magenta)

RUNE of the Month - URUZ

Man — Womanhood — A Wild Ox

STRENGTH

This is the Rune of termination and new beginnings, as spring begins in April,  2017. Strength indicates that this will be a time when you realize the life you have been living has been outgrown in its form, and so must die out to allow a new energy, bringing in a new birth, with a new form. Uruz is a Rune of passage and, as such, is a part of the cycle of Self-Transformation.

Positive growth and change, however, may involve passage into darkness as a part of the cycle of perpetual renewal. As in Nature, the progression consists of five parts: death, decay, gestation, germination, rebirth. Events occurring now may well prompt you to undergo a death within yourself. Since self-change is never coerced - as we are always free to resist - remain mindful that the new form, the new life, is always greater than the old.

Prepare then, for opportunity disguised as a loss. It could involve the loss of someone or something to which there is an intense emotional bond, and through which you are living a part of your life, a part that must now be retrieved so you can live it out for yourself. Now, in some way, that bond is being severed, a relationship radically changed, a death experienced. Seek among the ashes and discover a new perspective and a new birth.

The original meaning for this rune was the wild ox. When the wild ox was domesticated, a nearly impossible task, it could transport heavy loads. Learn to adapt yourself to the demands of such a creative time. Firm principles attach to this Rune, and at the same time humility is called for since in order to rule you must learn how to serve.  Write down some important changes that need to be made, and make them your Spring resolutions, then stick by them. For April 2017 will put you on notice that your Soul and the Universe will support the new growth.

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.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

Aries  (3/21 – 4/20)

April brings a need for recuperation. You need time with yourself, and perhaps a delicious companion. Your new business could take positive, giant strides now.

Taurus   (4/21-5/21)

If you’re involved in any groups, you might be asked to take the helm in April. You find it easy to tell someone you love them, Taurus, and you may this month. Just be sure to spread the love over to your family, friends, and colleagues. Work is productive and relaxing.

Gemini  (5/21-6/20)

April brings surprises and possibly some pranks as well. Be careful not to push anyone’s buttons. Finding a new job or new romantic interest in possible mid-month.

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

In April you meet people you’ll feel closely connected with immediately. You become aware that your beloved or children need something fancy mid-month. Don’t put yourself in a bad financial place. Do what you can—and no more.

Leo (7/23-8/22)

In April you may have a second shot at this oh-so-romantic time, but make sure you have some new solutions and responses to the old problems.

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

Sitting still is not easy for you, but someone could talk you into taking a day off to cuddle down and curling up with. If you’ve been abusing your plastic cards a bit, the Universe is about to bring you a “wake-up” call as April comes to a close.

Libra (9/23-10/22)

If you have some time on your hands in April, you might feel like hibernating on the couch with an adult drink in your hand. Don’t do that, it only takes three weeks to develop a habit. Business deals of all kinds or negotiations involving other people’s money or property could become problematic this month.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

You’re probably right. In April, if you’ve been wanting to lure your sweetheart away and have a serious talk about the future, wait no longer. April 15th is tax day, and you’re one to put it all off until the last minute. Don’t push your luck – take care of it early. Remember Mercury retrogrades on the 9th!

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

You need to keep an eye on your money now. Don’t be in a hurry, and be sure you’re getting your money’s worth. April brings a time when you may want to sign on the dotted line for a long-term commitment. Just wait a bit – at least until after the 15th, when Venus goes direct.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

Dividing your time between work and home can be problematic in April. You may restore a connection with someone you’ve been missing to too long. You have a long-needed conversation with a higher-up or elder that you’ve been putting off. It’s time to be very clear about what it is you want.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

April’s the time to push responsibilities aside and plan some leisure time activities. Time to kick back and enjoy the company of lighthearted friends. Finances are tight until April’s end. Tread carefully and use good judgment.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

Someone you adore is about to make their feelings known to you, in the nicest way. April brings the time to throw yourself fully into a project. You take time for yourself, your appearance, and begin to turn up the charm mid-month. Be sure to have your paperwork in order way before tax day on the 15th,

The sign of PISCES in March, 2017, reminds us of the entwined Fish, two spiritual energies becoming paramount, faith and compassion. Faith is the magical elixir that can vanquish hesitation, paralyzing anxiety and qualms. It can transfigure your life, offering increased psychic sensitivity, universal love and divine enlightenment. Compassion is essential now that you are in the final phase of the zodiac journey. Altruism must take precedence over egotism as empathy for all of humanity replaces individual pride and competitive tendencies. Understanding, as a broad comprehension of life's mysteries, is the special gift of every Pisces. No matter what sign of the twelve you may be, this month can make you an imaginative visionary with the mastery to benefit others in a variety of ways

ANIMAL: LIZARD — Dreaming


Lizard...will you dream with me?
Travel across the stars?
Beyond the place of time and space,
There live visions from afar

Lizard sat lolling in the shadow of a big rock, shading himself from the desert sun. Snake crawled by, looking for some shadow to coil up in and rest. Snake watched Lizard for awhile as Lizard's eyeballs went from side to side behind his enormous closed lids. Snake hissed to get Lizard's attention. Slowly Lizard's dreaming eyes opened and he saw Snake.

Snake! You scared me! What do you want?" Lizard cried.

Snake spit his answer from his forked tongue. "Lizard you are always getting the best shadow spots in the heat of the day. This is the only big rock for miles. Why don't you share your shade with me?"

Lizard thought for a moment, then agreed. "Snake, you can share my shade spot, but you have to go to the other side of the rock and you must promise not to interrupt me."

Snake was getting annoyed. He hissed, "How could I  bother  you Lizard? All you are doing is sleeping."

Lizard smiled knowingly. "Oh Snake, you are such a silly serpent. I'm not sleeping. I'm dreaming."

Snake wanted to know what the difference was, so Lizard explained. "Dreaming is going into the future, Snake.  I go where the future lives. You see, that is why I know you won't eat me today. I dreamed you and I know you are full of mouse."

Snake was taken aback. "Why Lizard, you are exactly right. I wondered why you said you would share your rock."

Lizard laughed to himself. "Snake," he said, "you are looking for shade and I am looking for shadow. Shadow is where the dreams live."

Lizard medicine is the shadow side of reality where your dreams are reviewed before you decide to manifest them physically. Lizard could have created getting eaten by Snake if he had so desired.

Lizard is the medicine of dreamers. Whether dreamers smoke you or dream you, dreamers can always help you to see the shadow. This shadow can be your fears, your hopes, or the very thing you are resisting, but it is always following you around like an obedient dog.
March 2017 is a time to look and see what is following along behind you. Is it your fears, your future trying to catch up to you, or is it the part of you that wants to ignore your weakness and humanness?

Lizard is suggesting that you pay attention to your dreams and their symbols. Make a dream log and record all that you remember. Be sure to pay attention to each individual symbol or recurring pattern. If you do not remember your dreams, you could try setting a music alarm for 2:00 or 3:00 am. Or you could try to drink a lot of water at bedtime and allow your bladder to wake you up. Dreams are very important and we need to learn to pay attention to them.

You may not have a dream for your future at this time. Remember that imagination is the door to all new ideas and creations. As you examine the dreaming process, you will find that the subconscious is processing all of the recorded messages it holds concerning the event you experience throughout the day. These messages can be suppressed feelings that brings about inner conflict, or they can be new ideas or goals, other dimensions of awareness, future events, warning signals, or desires and hopes.

In one sense, Lizard is insisting that you look into your imagination for new experience. This is necessary when life becomes dull or full of boredom. On the other hand, Lizard medicine may also apply to those of us who dream too much, refusing to use our dreams as tools to manifest that same vision in their lives.

All levels of awareness are accessible through dreams. Remember, life is not always what is seems. Are you the dreamer or are you the dreamed?

RUNE OF THE MONTH

 

CONSTRAINT - Necessity - Pain

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.

PISCES

astrologyline

The March 12th Full Moon in Virgo brings the end of Daylight Savings time. Time to set your clocks one hour ahead. Also you can make improvements with your health, diet as well as your job. However, expect some blocks and delays with moving forward.

The March 27th New Moon in Aries brings an exciting new drive. If you’re planning to begin something new, this is the time to start.

astrologyline

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Rest won’t come easy this month, Aries. The good news is that you’ll feel super energized and soar higher than plane, etc. This super powerful energy doesn’t come by very often, so use it wisely. Help someone! Your charisma is on a high level, and several old flames may come back into your life to say, “hi.”

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

Expect old friends to cross your path as March opens, Taurus, even if they live out of the area or out of state. You may decide to reach out to an old lover who got away. Passions heat up now, for good or for ill. Watch your temper and take lots of deep breaths.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

Time to let your colleagues and power that be that you feel it’s time to branch out. You’re ready to expand. You could break down the doors of groups and gain a couple of accomplices. Also, you have a chance to straighten out your finances again. You have two major areas that are pressing, money and romantic. However, you may have to wait a bit to get started.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

You probably won’t get much rest this month, Cancer. It’s time for you to review your relationships, both from long ago and present. You may take to Social Media to locate a few of them. Remember that people really don’t change, well most don’t. You may have a work-oriented goal to accomplish, and a stormy path with the higher-ups and authority figures.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

You definitely won’t be bored this month, Leo. You may have more social engagements than you can actually get to. You could hear from someone who lives in a foreign country, or someone who lives far away. Someone you’ve been missing for a long time. The good news is that you two have a full month to plan and shorten the distance between you.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

You’ve been working for a very long time, and definitely need a break, Virgo. Take a few days off and talk someone special into playing hooky with you. If you’ve been dating someone casually and want to make it exclusive, plan a talk to work things out. You’re usually pretty practical, so don’t be tempted to overspend at month’s end. Sitting still is not easy for you, but someone could talk you into taking a day off to cuddle down and curling up with.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

March brings you romance and intimate encounters If someone from the past re-enters your life, think twice before you return to this relationship just because it feels familiar. Know that you’re a real catch, you deserve the best, and trust your gut. You could meet someone from out-of-town with an accent with whom you feel an attraction. Just be cautious.

eagleScorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

If you’re up to a spontaneous get-away this month, the weekend of March 24th is perfect. The planets provide energy, boldness, and curiosity to visit new places or try something new. One never knows what that might be, but who cares? Go for it! You might just pick up the phone and arrange to visit someone you haven’t seen in a long time. If you have the feeling that a certain career-oriented situation is temporarily out of control, trust your own judgment. You’re probably right.

archerSagittarius (11/23-12/21)

Yes indeed! March bring you a good time! There will be no holding back from trying anything new; the more exciting, the better. Missing someone from the past? They just might look you up and pursue you for the second or third time, Sag. Make sure you’re not just seeking out what’s familiar. You need to keep an eye on your money now. Don’t be in a hurry, and be sure you’re getting your money’s worth.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

You’re a force to be reckoned with, and March will keep you moving, Capricorn. You may want to delegate some duties around the 27th, and take a break. Many of your encounters will be turned into emotional exchanges that come right from the heart. If someone apologizes, or attempts to, no matter how awkwardly, do yourself a favor and accept. There is some tension between you and a higher-up, elder, or authority at month’s end. Just apologize and move on.

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

It’s almost playtime, but March is a heavy working month, Aquarius. That doesn’t mean you won’t have fun, but there’s not much downtime. You could meet a new love interest from far-away places now. You’re not one to move quickly, but in this case, you may just know it’s the right thing to do. Mid-month you have to make a tough decision about finances and shared resources. If you’ve been take advantage of, ask for it back. You’ll probably get in just before you say good-bye.

fishesPisces (2/19-3/20)

If you suddenly have the feeling that you’re on a magic carpet ride in March, Pisces, you’re probably right! The first half of the month the Universe will see to it that you’re surrounded by kind, loving, and supportive friends. At month’s end plan a get-away and spend some time by the water. Also, someone you adore is about to make their feelings known to you, in the nicest way.

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.

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 Air 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.

Your changes aren't over yet, Aquarius, but the pressure has shifted, and you'll find that the new you is ready for "prime time." The year ahead for you is a time of transition. The Uranus-Pluto square that began in June of 2012 has been quietly controlling things in the background. After spring arrives, this influence will fade slowly, draping behind the scattered and confused aftermath to be cleaned up, cleared away, and most important, restructured. Because of these "finishing up energies," you have a chance to take control of those areas of your life where you have found yourself struggling. Looking back to review your problems is certainly tempting, but looking ahead will show you the many new possibilities for exploring and expanding your boundaries.

ANIMAL: CROW—Spiritual Law

Crow...
Are you cawing
So I may know the secret of balance,
Within my Soul?
Or are you sending
Your sacred "caw"
Just to remind me,
Of the Universal Laws?

Crow has always been fascinated with her own shadow.  She kept looking for it, scratching at it, pecking at it, until one day her shadow woke up and became alive. (One's shadow is one's dark side, the part of us that remembers past-lives and can soul travel.)  Then the crow ate her shadow. Crow is Dead Crow now.  (The expression Eat Crow comes form this ancient knowledge of Crow's fate.)

Dead Crow is the  Left-Handed Guardian.  If you look deeply into Crow's eyes, you will have found the gateway into the supernatural. Crow knows the unknowable mysteries of creation and is the keeper of sacred law.

Since Crow is the keeper of sacred law, Crow can bend the laws of the physical universe and shape shift.  This ability is rare and unique. Few can adapt easily in today's world, and fewer still have mastered Crow's art of shape shifting. This art includes doubling, or being in two places at the same time consciously,  taking another physical form, or becoming the fly on the wall to observe what is happening far away.

The Europeans that came to Turtle Island were named the   <I>boat people</I>   by slow turtle. Even with the knowledge of alchemy possessed by certain boat people, none had ever seen the powerful shape shifting of Shaman's who utilized Crow medicine. Many people were frightened by what appeared to be animals coming into their camps or dwellings, to discern their medicine. Crow medicine people are masters of illusion.

All sacred text are under the protection of Crow. Creator's  Book of Laws  or Book of Seals  is bound in Crow feathers. Crow feathers tell of spirit made flesh. Crow is also the protector of the ogallah  or ancient records, perhaps stored in Egypt.

The Sacred Law Belts beaded by native women long before the boat people or Europeans came to the continent of North America, contain knowledge of the Great Spirit's laws, and are kept in the Black Lodges, the lodges of women. The law that states that  all things are born of woman  is signified by the Crow.

Children are taught to behave according to the rules of a particular culture. Most orthodox religious systems create a mandate concerning acceptable behavior within the context of worldly affairs. Do this and so, and you will go to heaven. Do thus and so, and you will go to hell. Different formulas for salvation are demanded by each true faith.

Human Law is not the same as Sacred Law. More so than any other medicine, Crow sees that the physical world and even the spiritual world, as humanity interpreted them, are an illusion. There are billions of worlds. There are an infinitude of creatures. Great Spirit is within all. If an individual obeys Crow's perfect laws, as given by the Creator, than at death he or she dies a good medicine death - going on into the next incarnation with a clear memory of his or her past.

Crow is the Omen of Change  — and during these weeks of February 2017 Aquarius energies - that is what to expect. Crow lives in the void and has no sense of time. The Ancient Chiefs tell us that Crow sees simultaneously the three fates - past, present and future. Crow merges light and darkness, physical and shadow, seeing both inner and outer reality.

February 2017 will be the time for us to pause and reflect - and to show others how we see the Laws of Great Spirit in relation to the Laws of Humanity. Crow medicine signifies a first hand knowledge of a higher order of right and wrong that of that which is indicated by the laws of human culture. With Crow medicine - one speaks in a powerful voice when addressing issues that for you seem out of harmony, out of balance, out of whack, or unjust.

Remember, Crow looks at the world with first one eye, and then the other, cross-eyed. In the Mayan culture, crossed-eyes had the privilege and duty of looking into the future. You must put aside your fears of being a voice lost in the wilderness and caw the shots as you see them.  For one and all - for the betterment of the world and all that dwells within!  Caw - Natural Law - Caw - Natural Law!

As you learn to look within first and allow your personal integrity to be your guide, your sense of feeling alone will vanish.  Your personal will can then emerge so that you stand in your truth. The prime path of true Crow people says to be mindful of your opinions and actions.  Be willing to walk your talk, speak your truth, know your life's mission, and balance past, present, and future into the NOW.  Shape shift that old reality and become your future self.  Allow the bending of physical laws to aid in creating the shape shift to create world peace.

Honor the past as your teacher, honor the present as your creation, honor the future as your inspiration.  Call on Crow to shift your own creation into your new reality.

RUNE of the Month - TIEWAZ

WARRIOR
RUNE-3-SignalsTiewaz
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 February 2017.

During this time of ice, snow, and seasonal 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 with 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!

The February 10th Full Moon in Leo brings a Lunar Eclipse which is the first eclipse of the year, and the forerunner to the biggest celestial event of 2017, the total Solar Eclipse at 28 degrees Leo, on August 21st. The eclipse on February 10th is important because both the Sun and Moon are especially blessed by compatible influences from lucky Jupiter. However, please remember that any Lunar Eclipse is a time when the emotional energy is at its highest point.

The February 26th New Moon in Pisces brings a Solar Eclipse. This influence creates unstable and dangerous weather conditions, This energy puts a cloud and blurry lens over communications and makes it harder to remain logical and clear, along with possible use of military force. The threat rises even higher when Mars joins up with fiery Uranus later that same day. This is absolutely not at time to make important decisions or to initiate any new ideas

 

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Don’t count to getting too much rest in February. With a high energy level, you’ll be flirtatious, romantic and passionate. Does love-at-first-sight really exist? If it does, you’ll be the one to write home and tell about it. If you’ve been mulling over career issues, this may be a time when you stop thinking and start acting!

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

February brings attraction and romance. You might spend more time that usual behind the scenes, but it will certainly be for delightful reasons, sexy Taurus.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

February brings all kinds of encounters and surprises; some will leave you speechless. One of these could be very helpful to you on your career path. If you’re teetering on the edge, financially, this could be your make it or break it month.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

February doesn’t give you much time to yourself. If you’re attracted to someone in the office, older, younger, or in a position of authority, it’s a given that the feelings are mutual. OK, Now what? Hang in there! By early March, you’ll have it worked out.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

As February opens, free time disappears. Time to wrap up a project you’ve been working on. The Solar Eclipse could be a bit tricky, financially speaking. Don’t allow yourself to be confused about what’s what. If a deal seems to be too good to be true, it probably is.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

February brings an event you were especially looking forward to going awry. You may have to take action and tell these people to leave. Don’t feel guilty now, just put your foot down firmly!

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

February brings a romantic, long weekend. Time to spend quality time with your lover or husband. Don’t be drawn into any financial situations, with two eclipses this month, best to tread water and wait it out.

eagleScorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

February brings you and exciting but tight schedule. No down time, and check your temper. Don’t let the pressure get to you. The heavens are full of attractions and impulses in the department of love this month, but whether it lasts is another story!

archerSagittarius (11/23-12/21)

February bring a time to play. You surprise a lover at Valentines, and pull out all the stops. Even with two eclipses, this is certainly love month. Also, you have great timing with financial and career decisions.

goatCapricorn (12/22-1/19)

February brings a time of doing something special for your sweetheart. Can you possibly give someone another chance? Maybe? Backing away from competition is not an option now. You’re not a stranger to conflict, so face it all head on. Two eclipses this month just might set you free of something you weren't sure you could handle anyway.

water-bearer

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

February brings a time for sharing with siblings, neighbors, and friends. This is a time for throwing a get-together or block party. Also, be sure you have control of your hard earned money at month’s end.

fishes

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

You may be doing a bit of whispering in February, but don’t worry. It’s all for the right reason. February brings a far-off trip with a loved one. You may need some self-control with finances during a month with two eclipses. Yelling for a raise could work, but just don’t alienate others.

MEDITATION

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.

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


OTHILA
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.

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!)

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.

CAPRICORN

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.

Taurus   (4/21-5/21)

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.

Gemini  (5/21-6/20)

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.

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

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.

Leo (7/23-8/22)

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!

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

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?

Libra (9/23-10/22)

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.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

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.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

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.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

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!

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

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!

THE TRUE MEANING OF PEACE

Oh great and mighty Spirit of my Soul, 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.

stargazingThis 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 lifestream 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 SAGITTARIUS

sunglow

Sagittarius-ArrowThe sign of SAGITTARIUS is signified by the Archer or mythological Centaur and gives you cosmic relief after the ordeals of the intense Scorpio energies. An optimistic and enthusiastic demeanor sustains your one-pointed efforts and sparks a renewed sense of daring and adventure in the outside world. While your path can include sports, long-distance journeys, and philosophical inquiries, steer clear of the temptation to be a dilettante - an amateur in many fields but master of none. As you strive towards truth and wisdom, it is easy to see the universal picture but ignore practical details and then complain about hard work. The fires of this sagacious sign can entice you with illusions of greatness or turn your gaze towards clear, long-range aspirations. It is up to you to see each goal with precision, reach it, and be willing to go on to the next one.

Sagittarians have more energy than you know what to do with as the energy planets come together in your sign this month, Sag. You are full of inspiration and eagerness to act, with opportunities opening to match your ideas. Others are as excited as you are about your vision and things to come, and they are willing to lend their support. You can work on your impatience levels by using your great sense of humor to laugh at circumstances, as well as yourself. Otherwise, you could end up taking your frustrations out on others and dampening their enthusiasm for your plans. In your leadership role, it is up to you to do - to set the tone.

RUNE of the Month – Uruz
STRENGTH

RUNE-5Strength

Manhood, Womanhood, A Wild Ox

This is the Rune of termination and new beginnings, as the year ends with URUZ. The Rune, Strength, indicates that this will be a time when you realize the life you have been living has been outgrown in its form, and so must die out to allow a new energy, bringing in a new birth, with a new form. Uruz is a Rune of passage and, as such, is a part of the cycle of Self-Transformation.

Positive growth and change, however, may involve passage into darkness as a part of the cycle of perpetual renewal. As in Nature, the progression consists of five parts: death, decay, gestation, germination, rebirth. Events occurring now may well prompt you to undergo a death within yourself. Since self-change is never coerced - as we are always free to resist - remain mindful that the new form, the new life, is always greater than the old.

Prepare then, for opportunity disguised as a loss. It could involve the loss of someone or something to which there is an intense emotional bond, and through which you are living a part of your life, a part that must now be retrieved so you can live it out for yourself. Now, in some way, that bond is being severed, a relationship radically changed, a death experienced. Seek among the ashes and discover a new perspective and a new birth.

The original meaning for this rune was the Wild Ox. When the wild ox was domesticated, a nearly impossible task, it could transport heavy loads. Learn to adapt yourself to the demands of such a creative time. Firm principles attach to this Rune, and at the same time humility is called for since in order to rule you must learn how to serve.  Write down some important changes that need to be made, and make them your New Year's resolutions, then stick by them. For the New Year 2017, will put you on notice that your Soul and the Universe will support the new growth.

Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

ANIMAL — The FOX

foxes

FOX CAMOUFLAGE

FOX
Where are you?
Under the ferns?
Becoming the forest,
So I can learn?

Are you watching,
Invisible to me?

Trying to teach me?
To become a tree?

Reddy the Fox has many allies in the woodlands, including the foliage, which offers protection and much medicine. Fox is seemingly able to vanish admist the lush undergrowth of the forest. This flora is Fox's ally. The ability to meld into one's surroundings and be unnoticed is a powerful gift when one is observing the activities of others.

Another natural gift of Fox is the ability to adapt to winter by changing color, like the chameleon. Its rich, white winter coat allows Fox to blend into the snow when the leaves no longer linger. Fox medicine involves adaptability, cunning, observation, integration and swiftness of thought and action. These traits may include quick decisiveness, and sure-footedness in the physical world.

Fox's ability to be unseen allows it to be the protector of the family unit. If danger arises, Fox is johnny-on-the-spot. Nanih Waiya. Great Spirit in the Choctaw tongue, honors fox with the duty of keeping the family together and safe. This is accomplished through Fox's ability to observe undetected, without making others self-conscious. Fox is always concerned with the safety of family members and is an excellent tailsman for those traveling far afield.

Fox has chosen to share his energy with us throughout the month of December 2016, so take this as a sign for you to become like the wind, which is unseen yet it is able to weave into and through any location or situation. and you would be wise to observe the acts of others rather than their words at this time. Use your cunning nature in a positive way; keep silent about who and what and why you are observing. In learning the art of camouflage, you need to test your abilities to pull this off.

One test exercise that may be helpful to you is deciding to be invisible. In doing this exercise, you might try to visualize your body as a part of your surroundings, full of the colors of the location you are in. See in your mind's eye yourself moving with stealth and grace, unheeded by others. If you do it right, it works! You can leave a party unnoticed or become as unobtrusive as a piece of furniture, watching the developing drama of the subjects you are studying.

While learning from Fox, you might also gain confidence in your ability to know instantly what will happen next. After observing for awhile, you will become aware of a certain predictability in given situations and be able to quickly make your move. Fox medicine teaches the art of Oneness through its understanding of camouflage. This applies on all levels, from rocks to God. With Fox medicine, you are being asked to see all types of uses for oneness.

Much like the clowns at the rodeo, Fox can keep the raging bull from stampeding a friend or family member. Fox can use silly tactics as a brilliant camouflage move. No one could guess the sly power behind such ingenious maneuvers.
