Sun over clouds

The Sun has entered the sign of LEO

The fiery sign of LEO has an inside track on love, power and the universe. One of the best routes you can take is heart-focused meditation. Anything you can do to enhance the purity of your ideas and creativity will bring you rewards. Developing and using your creative abilities creates an energy flow within you that triggers that same flow to others when they encounter the work you have done. Music, acting and temporal forms of artistic expression that involve an audience as you create, brings you an especially potent technique. Engaging in sports activities brings joy and enthusiasm and at its best, brings playfulness to both spectators and players. Taking on a leadership role will challenge you to bring forth your best, Leo. Working and playing with children can also trigger spontaneity within for the benefit of everyone involved. Children respond the best when someone is able to touch their minds and hearts to draw them out. Their relative openness, especially when young, will allow you to open your heart as well. No matter what you do, if you realize that by giving to others you give to and improve yourself, you will always be on the right track.

2019  -  The Spotlight is on Your Home

In August the spotlight is on your home, pleasures, loved ones, and creativity. With the Sun in Leo for the first three weeks, you just want to be yourself, and do the things you enjoy. Recreation does not have to be expensive. Life's simple pleasures, such as sunsets, a loved one's smile, a stroll through the park with your partner or bestie, or playing with your pet can be joyful and create lasting, wonderful memories.

A stimulating alignment linking the August 6th New Moon in Leo with Uranus invites you to express yourself through love, games, creative activities, or entertaining during the few weeks that follow. Mercury in Leo, August 8th through the 22nd, adds to the fun, and puts you in a romantic, frisky, playful frame of mind.

The August 20th Full Moon in Aquarius provides a positive influence that extends into the next two weeks. You can spend time with friends or pursue goals. As August advances, several challenging planetary alignments may find you struggling with current laws, rules, and regulations. You usually resent being told what to do.

Mars spends most of August in Cancer where Jupiter is briefly passing through as well. This combination of planetary influences can ignite or amplify emotions. Mars is a water sign can trigger steamy emotional scenes and heated arguments.

It's okay now, take a deep breath, because when Mars moves into Leo on August 27th, you can let loose and enjoy life. This transit takes you through the Fall Equinox given you enough time to do a creative job, go on vacation, or get closer to your partner and loved ones. Be careful not to take any unnecessary risks.

The Sun has entered LEO

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.

You sparkle and shine in the spotlight this month, Gemini 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 brillant optimism with reality. If in doubt, seek advice from a friend or professional.

A close relationship could reach a turning point at the Full Moon is Taurus on May 18th. But a chance encounter at month's end could spark a whirlwind romance or an instantaneous friendship with a soul mate as Venus in Cancer connects you with intriguing, but serious  minded people. 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 BUTTERFLY

BUTTERFLY: Transformation
Butterfly...that flutters
In the morning light
You have known many forms
Before you e'er took flight.

The power that the butterfly brings us is akin to air. It is the mind, and the ability to know the mind or to change it. It is the art of transformation.

To use Butterfly medicine, you must astutely observe your position in the cycle of self-transformation. Like Butterfly, we are always at a certain stage of our soul growth and life activities. You may be at the egg stage, which is the beginning of all things. This is the stage in which an idea is born, but has not yet come into form. The larva stage is when you decide to create this idea and bring it into form in the physical world. The cocoon stage involves going within , doing or developing your project or idea, or changing an aspect of your personality. The final stage of transformation is leaving the chrysalis and emerging through birth. This last step involves sharing the colors and joy of your creation with the world.

If you look closely at what butterfly is trying to teach, you will realize that it is a never-ending cycle of self-transformation.

The way to determine where you are in this cycle is to ask yourself:

  • Is this the egg stage? Is it just a thought or idea?
  • Is this the larva stage? Do I need to make a decision?
  • Is this the cocoon stage? Am I developing and doing something to make my idea a reality?
  • Is this the birth stage? Am I sharing my complete idea?

By asking yourself these questions, you will discover how Butterfly is relating to you at this moment. When you understand where you are, the symbol can teach you what to do next to continue in your cycle of self-transformation. If you have found the position though which you are cycling, you will see the creativity of the Butterfly.

Using the air, or mental powers of this medicine is done with ease. As an example, if you have been feeling exhausted and have asked how to heal your fatigue, take notice of the colors to which you have been drawn to lately. Does your body feel better in green? Could this mean that you need to eat more green vegetables, or improve your career skills to earn more money? This type of awareness is an inspiration from Butterfly medicine.

Butterfly can give clarity to your mental process and help you to organize the project you are undertaking, as well as assist you in finding the next step for your personal life or career. The main message to be obtained during the time of the Leo energies is that you are ready to undergo some type of transformation.

Allow the change to come. Butterfly represents courage, which is always needed to change your reality or complete any creativity process. It is a totally different world outside of the cocoon, where the known realities of the chrysalis no longer apply. Let go of the past and begin to spread your wings. The new world you have entered demands that you use your new-found wings and fly!

CRYSTAL: THE PERIDOT and ONYX

Overall balancer of the mind and body. Aligns the subtle bodies and increases intuitive awareness. Reduces stress. Stimulates the mind and thinking process. Accelerates personal growth. Opens new pathways to new opportunities. Helpful when going through sudden change or crisis.

RUNE of the Month - ANSUZ

RUNE-3-Signals

ANSUZ — Signals

ANSUZ is the first of the twelve Runes that make up the Cycle of Self-Transformation. These Runes focus directly upon the mechanism of self-change. The keynote in August of 2019 is receiving: messages, signals, gifts. Even a timely warning may be seen as a gift. When the Messenger Rune brings us sacred knowledge, one is truly blessed.

The message may be that of a new life unfolding. New lives begin with new connections, surprising linkages that direct us to new pathways. Take pains to be especially aware and conscious during meetings, visits, chance encounters, particularly with persons wiser than yourself. A sense of new family solidarity invests Ansuz.

Through association with the Norse god Loki, Mercury overshadows this Rune. In mythology a strange, androgynous figure, keeper of the keys of knowledge, Mercury carried messages between the gods and between gods and humanity. In him is symbolized the urge to integrate unconscious motive with conscious recognition. This Rune is the focus for August 2019, telling us that the connection with the Divine is at hand.

Signals - the Ansuz Rune - brings a sign to explore the depths, the foundations of life, and to experience the inexhaustible wellspring of the Divine in your nature. You are reminded that you must draw first from the well to nourish and give to yourself. Then there will be more than enough to nourish others.

You may well be concerned over what appears to be failed communication, lack of clarity or awareness, either in your past history or in a present situation. Equally, you may feel concern because of difficulties that inhibit you from accepting what is being offered. Then again, a sense of futility, of wasted motion, of a fruitless journey, may dismay you. Remember, however, that this is one of the Cycle (karma) Runes. What happens in your life this August is timely in your life process. If the well is clogged, this is the month to clear out the waste. Make your decisions and go forward without fear. Trust the Universe to put you in the right direction. Everything will settle by Summer's end.

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

LEO

The July 31st New Moon in Leo brings some uncontrolled energy, thanks to Uranus. Keep your head down, try to stay on track, and allow the energy to swirl past you, not through you. A fortunate trine with Jupiter saves the day and lessens the severity of some of this chaos. It’s time to plant the seeds of something inspiring and creative.

The August 15th Full Moon in Aquarius brings the opportunity to be your own leader and see that social events or political campaigns are successful. Also, there could be some surprising and upsetting news. Be sure to pitch in and don’t just sit back and let everyone else do the work.

The August 30th Full Moon in Virgo brings a harmonious trine with Uranus that offers happy surprises concerning your job and your health. It give you the green light for the seeds you have planted in areas of work and health, and service to others. This energy could bring you a new pet as well.

ram

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

fishes

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

August brings a time when you feel that the light has been turned on in the attic, and you can’t believe or ignore all the dusty, archaic things you’ve stored there. Although you may like the poking around, some memories and feelings are deeply painful and difficult. Don’t dwell on them. Honor them and let them go. Just love the experiences with all of your heart, as you usually do, and carry on.

MEDITATION

The Life That Makes All Things New

Amma-ovalAs 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 new, brighter light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.

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

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

Think of Ammachi, and meditate on the yellow golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, as is Amma, always!  The petals of this divine rose are slowly opening as you chant your mantras to Amma, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a light within the heart as well music coming to you from within the rose. The light from above and the light from the rose blend as one...as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.

The Sun has entered the sign of CANCER

Cancer, the first water sign, is the phase for personality integration and building an inspired home base in the world. Take the fiery independence of Aries, the fierce dedication of Taurus, the effervescent thinking of Gemini and weave them into a firm foundation for individual fulfillment. Represented by the armored Crab and the agile Cat, this sign reminds you to be shrewd and tenacious and to keep clawing your way to success. Old memories, a sense of history and family heritage provide a solid background for you to face the future with confidence. As you dispel the clouds of moodiness and emotional vulnerability, trust your feelings and your decision-making process and watch your psychic sensitivity grow in the process. A maternal, nurturing manner can be a comforting gift to relatives and colleagues over the Independence Holiday weekend.

July brings two Eclipses and new beginnings, with an eye toward a prosperous and successful future. Expect upsetting weather conditions and heavy electrical storms, tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as out of control fires. July begins in heavy emotions, karma, and a feeling of being stuck, or frozen. Mercury is retrograde through most of July. Many momentous decisions may be forced to be delayed, but will have to be made, bringing you to a new plateau and by mid-September you'll be well on the way to a brand new life style.

ANIMAL: THE BLACK PANTHER

                       BLACK PANTHER
        Embracing The Unknown

Oh Midnight Jaguar
Wash me with your courage.
And steel me with your grace.
So I may know the value of
The void of time and space.
Teach me all your lessons,
How to face the dark unknown.
Then bravely let me leap
Into the shadows all alone.
Black Panther slid silently through the bayou, her golden eyes catching the starlight, midnight fur soundlessly rippling over her stealthy sinew, muscle, and bone. She and her mate were the last of their kind in the homeland of the Caddo Tribe. The Panther Clan had been honored and respected by the red people of the bayou for hundreds of years. Black Panther's medicine allows human beings to face their fears and dark behaviors, expanding those shadowy aspects of being.

Most of Panther's tribe had been stalked and killed by the other two-leggeds, who had come across the big water and who feared their own dark natures. Those people were in need of her healing medicine. That night the Black Panther stood at the edge of the swampy bayou, sniffing at the night, trying to catch the scent of any newcomer willing to go beyond their fears and trust her medicine. No, not on this night, but she would patiently wait for one courageous explorer of the healing potential found in the dark of the unknown.

The Caddo people called her clan the Black Panther, and her tribe was known as the Midnight or Black Jaguar to the Maya. The color black is honored by the red race: Darkness is the place for seeking and finding answers, for accepting healings, and for accessing the hidden Light of Truth. Black Panther teaches us through our dreams to delve into places within ourselves that need healing. She shows us how to track the unfamiliar territory found on the journey of self-discovery and to fearlessly face the unknown.

Since Black Panther is appearing to us during July 2019, it asks you not to be worried about the future. Trust that you are not supposed to mentally "figure it out" at this time. You may need to confront some of your fears of the unknown, of being less than you truly are, or an inability to simply BE. Let go of any fears that appear as obstacles or barriers. Embrace the unknown and flow with the m mystery that is unfolding in your life. The next step may be leaping empty-handed into the void with implicit trust. In the stillness of the void, find the will to avoid foolish temptations, going deeper into your own self-discovery and haling process. Here you will discover Black Panther's unexpected blessings.

Enter the stillness and refuse to surrender your personal authority to avoidance mechanisms, justifications, or mental gymnastics. Remember that fear of "what if" will always keep you from enjoying the present moment and life's gift of the present. Tell your shadow to get lost! Then acknowledge and release any feelings of discomfort. Find the emptiness of the void and snuggle into Black Panther's fur. In all cases, you are reminded that every human being emerged from the darkness of the womb; you once felt the silence and ebony void of this nurturing space was the safest place to BE.

A highly evolved crystal gem.

RUNE of the Month - ISA

ISA—STANDSTILL

That Which Impedes — Freezing Rain — Ice

Isa represents the Rune that focus on the winter of the Spiritual part of life. You may find yourself entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect, blind. You may be powerless to do anything except surrender, submit, even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient for this is the fallow period that precedes a rebirth.

Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, as all of your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why. The chilling wind is reaching you over the ice flows of old outmoded habits.

Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life, out of phase. Seek to discover what it is that you are holding onto that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, and cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw. Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal, the I.

Yet, there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still. What you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions, your habits, but the conditions of the time, against which you can do nothing. What has been full must be empty. What has increased must decrease. This is the way of heaven and earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.

During this time do not expect to rely on help or friendly support. Exercise caution in your isolation, and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old; the seed of unrealized potential, the seed of good. Your conduct now will bring the new fruit to ripeness, or cause it to rot on the vine. Trust your own process, your Blessed Higher Self, and watch for the signs of Spring that will eventually come. (Possibly by August's end)

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

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

You feel as if your right foot is on the gas pedal while the left one is on the breaks as July opens, Aries.  Allow your need to be constantly on the move give way to focused application to what needs to be accomplished. If you’re asking, “Why am I not satisfied?” be assured that the early month total Solar eclipse unleashes an assorted amount of feelings for you to work through. You’re on the road to redefining what success means to you. 

bull

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

July brings a sensitivity that you want to crawl under a rock until it all stops. You’re not unhappy but your circuits are burned out and you need a time out. Try not to say yes to everything that’s asked of you. This brings resentment, and there’s at least one person who wants to dump a pile of work on you; something they are quite capable of doing as well as being responsible for. Both eclipses and Mercury retrograde has made you a bit of a raging bull. Don’t feel so overwhelmed, your efforts are recognized by the higher-ups.

twins

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

July brings a potpourri of uncomfortable feelings and experiences that will test you to the core. Use you mind and mental agility to put things in perspective. It’s not so much that you’re a hermit, you just don’t like running all over the place. If you do go out, it’s to places warm and familiar. You need the security of people who know you best so you can deal with what’s happening within. A lot of insecurity has surfaced about your future, especially with finances and relationships.

crab

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

One day you feel like a million dollars and the next you want to go crawl under a rock. In July, begin to integrate how to care for yourself and at the same time, exemplify your dedication to the welfare of others. Take time to celebrate your life by doing whatever brings a smile to your face. It’s time to take deliberate steps to put your self on the list of your priorities. Do you give yourself permission to dream outside of your comfort zone? This is the big question that needs an answer.

lion

Leo (7/23-8/22)

One never knows what the electric planet, Uranus will bring. At the Full Moon on July 1st he may arrange a ‘coincidence” meeting for you; perhaps at the bank, cleaners, or the grocery store. At some point someone who excites you, charges you up, and gets you motivated, will cross your path. Pay attention to small talk, Leo. At month’s end and as August opens, the light spotlights your relationships.

virgin

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

Virgo, the battle between your old habits and new hopes makes you wonder which end is up. You won’t see your way clear until Mercury comes out of retrograde at month’s end. Make a new plan. Set aside any definition of what you are responsible for and create a new game plan, where your number one priority is you. The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s how you describe your workplace. Remember, the only person you can change is yourself. Trying to fix others always gets you in trouble.

scales

Libra (9/23-10/22)

Just when you thought 2019 would be nothing but rainy and stormy, the sun comes out and you feel brand new again. Smile, bask in the sun and know you are making headway. Boost yourself up to be able to grasp the opportunities coming your way and overcome any obstacles that you may have put in the way. While Mercury is retrograde, make no plans, have no expectations, make no demands. Just experience the pleasure of being alive.

eagle

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

You don’t care if you have to push, pull, or drag the whole world with you. July brings knowledge that you are ready to move in a new direction and shake things up. While Mercury is retrograde, you may fly by the seat of your pants, but you trust your instincts. After the two July eclipses, you may feel like a kid in a candy store.

archer

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

You feel as if you’re going to explode or implode and those are your only two choices, Sag. However there is another one. Relieve the inner pressure by acknowledging it and then dig deep down to find the root cause. With two eclipses in July, your deep emotions are being pushed up into your conscious mind. It may be time to find someone to open up to. You don’t have to always do everything by yourself.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

Your emotions coming up to the surface, as you experience the weepiest most sensitive month of your whole life. catches you completely off guard, Cap. You’re not sure if you’re fascinated or repulsed. How about both? Although this is not what you consider normal or appropriate, it’s happening and does have a purpose. It’s to integrate parts of you that you have suppressed and ignored for too long. Above all, be kind to yourself during this process.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

Your famous capacity for objectivity and detachment disappear in July, and you find that you’re unable to resist reacting immediately and defensively to the slightest shift or change around you. Recognize there’s a deep push coming from inside to expel a number of fears and limitations that limit you. Then find ways to ease this process and find peace. Out of the blue, the most important people in your life show up to support you in dealing with the negative things you believe about yourself. This brings a strong trust with your relationships.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

July is an intensely emotional month for the entire planet, Pisces. You need to take steps to protect yourself emotionally and psychically. Sit under a tree, meditate, take a vacation, listen to uplifting music, and find new ways to have fun. Be very picky about who you spend time with now. You don’t have much patience to hear anyone complain about anything. Also, you are moving mountains inside you, and this doesn’t leave you much energy to cope with anyone else. The two eclipses ask you to work on yourself from within, and relax and enjoy life.

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 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.

ANIMAL: LIZARD

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. May 2019, 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

PROTECTION — Algiz
Sedge or Rushes, An Elk

Algiz is the Rune given to warn us to control our emotions. During this transit and transition in the next few months,  the shifts in your life course are accelerated self change. It is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions, the highs as well as the lows. May 2019 offers ample mental exercise and stimulation. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. With this will come trespasses and unwanted influences.

Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always within the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the curved horns of the elk, or the sedge grass, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to protect yourself from life or pull the veil down and escape by denying what is happening. You will progress on your correct path; knowing that is your protection.

Look carefully at the associations you form at this time. Be thoughtful of your health and alert enough not to add weight to what others are carrying. If you see fit to stay involved with people who are "using you or zapping your energies," stay conscious of that fact and take responsibility for your own position; then you will always benefit. Regardless of whether your enterprises suffer, do not be concerned. You may not win all you desire, but you will never lose, for you will always learn and gain wisdom from whatever takes place. Temperance and courtesy are the sinews of this Rune's protective powers.

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

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Instead of making some regrettable mistakes as May opens,  do what’s so very difficult for you. Sit down, take a deep breath and jus BE. For the first week in May resist the power struggles. Just when you think the Universe has thrown you a curve ball, you find that the unexpected challenges turn out to be blessings. Remember, not everything comes to fruition within five minutes after you begin—relax and veg. Give the new project a chance Aries.

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

In May your energy returns and you turn your attention to rebuilding your self-confidence. Your mood softens and you realize that it’s easy to project onto others the discomfort you have been feeling toward yourself. You make tremendous strides in finding the solution to what you have been pondering over the last two months. Soon everything will be running smoothly again, and you can feel a deep satisfaction of accomplishment.

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

May carries its share of irritations and adjustments. Take it all in stride because any delays are actually opportunities to fine-tune the direction your life is going in. New people cross your path, including one who will have a significant impact on your life in the future. You may not be aware of it, but you are planting seeds for your future. It’s time to let go of the past, no matter how used to it you’ve become. Month’s end brings you great rewards.

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

May brings a time of inner turmoil. Half of you wants to rush around and get things accomplished, and the other half wants to kick back and watch the clouds roll by. You will need to find a happy medium. With career, no rocking the boat, no pushing the envelope and no taking big risks. This would bring you an internal insecurity that can undermine all you’ve done. Get out and meet new people because you could find a few you’ll connect with. Don’t waste too much time second guessing yourself.

Leo (7/23-8/22)

May brings you freedom from the burden of uncertainty and insecurity that has been with you from the closing of last year. You are ready to look at the future head on. You realize that not only do you need a new beginning, you desire it. Be very careful when making promises to anyone. You have a tendency to make a promise without realizing the level of commitment being asked of you. This can allow for resentment and anger. You hate to break a promise. New opportunities come along and, of course you are interested. Just make sure its not something down the path you’ve vowed to leave behind.

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

May brings you a feeling of steady ground. For the first time in seven years, gone is any apprehension lurking just under the surface. In its place is a wellspring of confidence. You have mastered the ups and downs of all you’ve had to face. The order and regularity is something that nourishes you. It also restores trust in others that has been lacking for awhile. Your key word is satisfaction, enabling you to truly accomplish and get a lot done.

Libra (9/23-10/22)

Although you are not normally rude, you will need to cope with whatever comes into your head in May, Libra. Every once in a while the pressure to say whatever you think can build to a point that the dam bursts. As you struggle with this, it’s time to recognize what the real issue is. Do the choices you make require another person’s permission? And is the reverse true as well? Being close to someone does not give you the right to weigh in on everything they do. Perhaps the reality of your relationships doesn’t match your wishful thinking. Time to raise your consciousness?

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

May is about to show you how many different ways you can be irritated. It’s not people talking endlessly or you not getting anywhere; the turmoil is about the constantly changing plans. Usually you’re the one who can see through the upsets and find a solution. However, this time you choose to bow out and not become involved. It’s either that or pull your hair out! The opportunity to meet new people at month’s end lifts your spirits and gives you something delicious to get excited about.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

May is a little more than uncomfortable for you, Sag. No matter what unfolds, it’s going to leave you scratching your head in disbelief. Normally, you can rise to the occasion and handle whatever comes up. Prepare to be tested. Not because there are no solutions, but because you sense that the people around you have lost their minds. You feel that there’s a lot going on inside you that you can't quite gat a handle on. Yes, there are emotional issues trying to surface so you can release them and move on.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

May brings you back to your happy place, Cap. You decided it was high time you put what’s going on in your life through a stringent litmus test. How much does it all really matter? What’s the result? A list of priorities that relieves your stress considerably.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

May shows you that it’s not that you’re unhappy or discontent, but just plain tired. You’re looking for a hole you can crawl into. Anywhere to rest and recalibrate, and avoid any hint of change. Everything seems to be getting on your nerves. Normally it’s just the little things, but this month it seems to be everything. You feel out of sorts, out of energy, and your usual tolerance has packed up and left town. Take a break, and don’t talk to anyone, including yourself.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

May brings a time when you are not willing to negotiate with anyone. It’s time for you to stick to your desires, your wants, and your needs. If anyone even dares to suggest that you are being selfish, ignore them. You could never persuade them they’re wrong or just how you want to live your life. What they are doing is trying to control you. Walk away, Pisces. Timing is good for you to put your career plans in motion. Don’t dismiss your creative impulses with ideas from others. It’s time to honor yourself.

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 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.

The good news, Aries, is this will be a good but life-changing year. Unfortunately, it may take until year's end for everything to come together, which is sure to try your limited patience. The career path you make this year will continue to influence your life and stay with you for many years to come. This effort will reach its peak seven to ten years from now.

As 2018 closed. we all completed a long transit, beginning in June of 2006, and with the dawning of the 2019 Spring Equinox, have begun a new path. Pluto is known as the transformation planet,; Uranus energy has moved into Taurus and is always electric, sudden, and quick. Rarely does life remain the same once the transit is complete. The effects seem to be irreversible. It pushes people to, in some way, cut ties with the past and move on to new endeavors. The  Solar Super Moon, at zero degrees Libra, encourages us to do just that. This is the energy of so long, farewell, and goodbye, as well as new beginnings.

This is what the energies are asking of you through the spring months. Although some of you could experience a layoff, releasing you to move on to a greater career after that experience, for the most part, you will feel a secure background of energy strengthening your position for significant achievements. If you want to try out for a reality show on TV, this is the year to do it!  These energetic, positive planetary lineups will never again happen for you in this lifetime!  Anything goes.

Chance encounters and networking can trigger romantic opportunities. If you are looking for a new partner or strengthening an ongoing relationship, 2019 promises to be a year to remember. The more you pay attention to subtle comments and shifts, the better prepared you'll be able to act when the time is right!

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.  (As in Remote Viewing)

The Europeans that came to Turtle Island were named the boat people 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 April 2019, Aries 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.

April 2019, 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

RUNE-2Partnership

GEBO
Partnership

Gebo is the Rune showing that a union or uniting or partnership of some form is at hand. You are, however, put on notice not to collapse yourself into that union. For true partnership can only be achieved by separate and whole beings who retain their separateness even in unity and uniting. Always remember to let the winds of heaven dance between you.

At all levels, in love relationships, business matters, in partnering of any kind, this counsel applies particularly when you are entering into a partnership with your Blessed Higher Self. Establishing an open, flowing channel between the Self and the Higher Self is the ultimate form of human partnership. For out of it comes a union with the Divine. God always enters into equal partnerships.

Thus Gebo, the Rune of Partnership, has no reverse for it signifies the gift of freedom from which flows all other gifts.

astrologylineThe Personal Signs:

Aries Ram ARIES (3/21-4/20)

In April Mars moves into Gemini and you feel released from prison. Just when you think you’re clear of stress, April throws you a few curve balls. Examine some of the plans you have put into place and revise them when needed. Unexpected challenges can turn out to be blessings.

Taurus Bull TAURUS (4/21-5/21)

April continues with the high stress levels, Taurus. You question everything and there are no clear answers. People around you freak when you begin sharing your inner turmoil. You can adapt nicely to change if only you knew what it was. Uranus dares you to break down everything in your life and examine its value. Examine and keep only that which you truly value. It’s a difficult process but it has to be done.

Gemini Twins GEMINI (5/21-6/20)

In April you emerge renewed. Your engines are firing on all cylinders and all is a glow with opportunity. Your only question is, “Where do I begin?”

Cancer Crab CANCER (6/21-7/22)

April helps the tumult subside allowing you to take three or four deep breaths without feeling your hit by a tidal wave of unresolved issues. Now you can get a lot accomplished as your self-confidence returns.

Leo Lion LEO (7/23-8/22)

April still brings you that “itchy, twitchy feeling,” because you don’t feel you have a clear sense of direction. Action doesn’t always be outward. Go within and the results are sure to surprise you in delightful ways.

Virco Virgin VIRGO (8/23-9/22)

April brings impatience because you are ready to move forward and the rest of the world is taking a break. Don’t clench your teeth or fists, but see this as a pause, not a delay. The timing isn’t right to take the steps you desire.

LibraLIBRA (9/23-10/22)

April is impulsive with romance as well as trying new things with fiery friends.  April also brings a lightening of your spirits as well as some fun. Enjoy it. You deserve it Libra. Leave any heaviness for another time.

Scorpio Eagle SCORPIO (10/23-11/22)

April can bring some sleepless nights. What’s going on that is getting in the way of practical matters? Do some mindful exercises that will empty your thoughts before you go to sleep. Your consciousness is in overdrive.

Sagittarius Archer SAGITTARIUS (11/23-12/21)

April brings a standstill. It’s time to begin listening to the worries and concerns of those around you. And delays come down to one thing. You may need to review the details of and plans and projects that you nay have. Otherwise things may never get off the ground.

Capricor Goat CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19)

. April brings more of what you don’t want; delays. 2019 is turning into a year of the promise of action, and then waiting and waiting. Like the Goat, you want to push through and forget the consequences. Don’t! You understand it all in due time.

Aquarius Water-bearer  AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18)

April brings feelings of wispyness and heaviness. It’s a matter of understanding that some areas in your life are diametrically opposing each other. Just when you’re at the point of absolutely losing your mind, work comes to your rescue with new projects and pathways. Your circuits are on overload and adjusting to the new state of your life‑perhaps upside down.

Pices FishesPISCES (2/19-3/20)

As April opens you are unsure which inner prompting you should follow. You’re not at indecision, but instead, at an impass. Remember, it’s time to take your dreams outside your imagination and move them into the physical realms. Your spark of inspiration is riding on the wind to be brought to the next level.

AFFIRMATION

Knowledge is found within as I meditate and pray for my personal life answers.

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 with its glowing Amber Light—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 you 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 fill your being with Light, joy, and everlasting love. Smell the fragrance emitting from the center of the rose and allow yourself to become Light with the radiance of the Universe.

May God grant me Health, Protection, and Guidance.

The Sun has entered PISCES

The sign of PISCES in March, 2019, 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.

as well as the Rising Sign.)

ANIMAL: THE SKUNK

Skunk — Reputation

SKUNK Tell me the story So I will know it well, Of how to attract, And how to repel.

Skunk medicine! Go ahead and laugh. This fury little animal has a reputation that contains a great deal of power. Due to its distinctive behavior, humans give this tiny, smelly creature a wide berth. The keyword here is respect.

Unlike other predatory animals, Skunk does not threaten your life but threatens your senses. You know this to be true if you have ever been in the vicinity of its spray. In observing the habit patterns of skunk, it is easy to notice the playfulness and nonchalance of its natural behavior. The "I dare you" attitude of this four-legged creature commands you, as the observer, to respect its space and mere reputation alone.

Skunk is teaching you that by walking your walk and talking your talk, with respect for yourself, you will create a position of strength and honored reputation. The carriage of your body relates to others of what you think about yourself. There is no need to bully, aggravate, torment, or overpower other people or things when your sense of "self" is intact. As with Skunk, the resonate field of energy around your body is relayed through the senses. Self-esteem permeates the body's energy, and is instantly recognized on an extrasensory level by others.

Learn to assert, without ego, who you are. Respect will follow. Your self-respect attitude will repel those who are not of like mind, and yet attract those who choose the same pathway. As the odor of the skunk attracts others of its kind, it repels anyone who will not respect its space.

Skunk medicine people have the ability to attract others, and they are very charismatic. At the same time, the other side of their natural power is to repel those who seek to take energy from them without recycling the gifts they have taken.

Skunk medicine people also know how to use the energy flow to attract a lover. Some people call this sexual magic, as it is akin to the musk scent that animals excrete to attract a mate. It can be dangerous to leak sexual energy if you are not looking for a mate. It puts you into a games position that may feed your ego but not reflect how others feel about you. If you are attracting others who have an interest in you, then you are in fact saying, "I am available." This will only cause hard feelings when the "truth" comes out. It also leaks energy that you could have used in a more constructive way.

When using Skunk medicine, it is best to learn how to handle energy flows. Modern psychologists call this "body language." In tribal teachings, this is your personal medicine which you are revealing to others. Use your medicine well, and know that you are known by your reputation. How you use your energy will attract either honor or disgrace. You may want to examine what energy you are putting out that has created your present situation.

In March, 2019, you are being asked to notice the kinds of people who are attracted to you. If they emulate favorable characteristics, have enough self-esteem to recognize those characteristics within yourself. Walk tall and be proud of the accomplishments you have made. Bear in mind that what you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection. Project your self-respect!

CRYSTAL: AQUAMARINE — JASPER

 AQUAMARINE —  A variety of beryl. Calms the nerves, reduces fluid retentions, strengthens kidneys, liver, spleen, thyroid. Purifies the body. Enhances calmness of mind, aids creative self-expression. Brings physical/mental/emotional balance. Helps to banish fears and phobias. Excellent for meditation, inspiration, peace, calmness, love.

 JASPER —  A variety of chalcedony. Strengthens liver, gallbladder, bladder. Powerful healer. Main impact is on the physical body. Represents our earth element. Works with the Chakras and adjusting our attitude, according to the color of the Jasper stone.

RUNE of the Month - Othila

RUNE-4Retreat

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 the Pisces energies for March 2019, advises us that a peeling away is now called for. This is the Rune of radical service!

The proper action here is submission, and, quite probably, retreat. Retreat in the sense of reserve in your conduct; for knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing that anyone can learn. Know when to retreat and have the firmness of character to carry it out.

Take pains not to be mechanical or unaware of what is happening around you. This is not a time to be bound by old conditions and old authority. When going through changes, release and letting go, ask yourself what feels right for you and act according to the Light you possess now in your life. Because you may be called upon to undertake a radical departure from the old ways, total honesty is required. Otherwise, through negligence or refusal to see clearly, you may cause pain to others, or damage to yourself.

Not rigidity but flow is the proper attitude at this time. And yet you must wait for the Universe to act. Othila - the March 2019 Rune - reminds us that we do without doing, and everything gets done.

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

PISCES

The March 6th New Moon in Pisces brings a conjunction of timing as Uranus enters Taurus on the same day as the New Moon. Taurus represents finances and money while Pisces represents deep emotions and forgiveness. This combination signals an economic and revolution that will influence the world global markets through 2030.

The March 20th Full Moon in Libra brings us another conjunction of timing as the Sun enters Aries on the Spring Equinox. This is a Super Moon at 0 degrees Libra and is a good time to go within, meditate and contact your unconscious to help bring business and relationship issues to a good conclusion.

Mercury is Retrograde between March 5th and March 28th, 2019

astrologyline

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Things lighten up a bit on March 2nd and that bit of breathing room recharges your energies. On March 6th Uranus moves into Taurus, and everything starts to vibrate and intensify. You are unprepared for your feelings of approaching disaster. With Mercury retrograde most of the month March is a time for restraint, reflection as well as self-imposed timeouts. In April Mars moves into Gemini and you feel released from prison.

bull

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

A major turning point looms in front of you as Uranus moves into Taurus on the 6th. Instead of casting everything in concrete, realize that your world needs a bit of shaking up. Your equilibrium takes a hit and you feel like you’re bouncing around like a ping-pong ball. Use the Mercury retrograde period (March 5th to 28th) to do some real soul searching. Remember, being combative won’t solve any issues.

twins

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

The combination of Mercury going retrograde on the 5th and Uranus moving into Taurus on the 6th knocks you off balance and takes you into unfamiliar territory. You are overwhelmed, so accept that what’s happening isn’t intended to make sense. Hang in there. You’ll be just fine. Everything around you seem like you’re in a foreign country and you don’t know how to navigate. Just take a deep breath and don’t hit the panic button. If you try to make any decisions, you could precipitate a crisis that you just don’t need. Life seems like a jigsaw puzzle so turn inward. That’s where your feelings of security are hidden.

crab

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

As March opens the changes going on inside of you feel like an internal earthquake. Just realize that everything is not a life-death decision. As you try to release the pressure, you need to be careful not to act like a five-year old. Find a creative, physical way to release this energy. A new path opens up unexpectedly, leading you to take stock of commitments and plans you thought you’d never change or abandon. You find yourself examining everything. March brings a shocking insight and you are ready to turn your life upside down to create a new start.

lion

Leo (7/23-8/22)

As Uranus moves into Taurus on March 6th you feel like you want to crawl out of your skin. Your new reality is questioning your purpose, status, and what you truly value. Instead of thinking that you don’t need any help, reach out to family and loved ones for support. You may be feeling smothered and you cannot allow your pride to interfere with getting the support that you readily give to others. Nothing makes any sense to you at this time, so step back, observe, knowing that this is a seven-year process of overhauling major facets in your life. The only thing required of you is the knowing that, “I am safe, it’s only change.”

virgin

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

You sense that change is in the wind as Uranus enters Taurus on March 6th. Of course you are still trying to keep everything at a standstill because of “the Devil you know,” so you know what to expect. Virgo, resistance is futile. Uranus is bringing you a new set of opportunities for your personal and materialistic growth. Take the risk! Step back from the hasty assumption that relationships are confusing and such a bother. Realize that there are things to be done to recalibrate before you can repair matters and move forward. It’s major clean up time with your career, future success, relationships as well as finances. Follow your hunches and not your logic, Virgo.

scales

Libra (9/23-10/22)

As March opens you are filled with practical ways you can put your whacky ideas into practice. Before getting carried away, think them through during the Mercury retrograde period (March 5th to 28th) a few more times. Choose which ones have the most potential so you’re not running around in different directions and can focus. You like people, but be sure not to allow them to use you as a doormat. Workplace stress is unending because of arguing and bickering over the past year. Don’t take sides! Don’t be passive-aggressive; you need to confront people and say what you feel. Otherwise it could get messy.

eagle

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

Life takes a lighter tone in March ending the ever-emotional turmoil of February. It’s like you’ve come out of a trance you didn’t know you were in. Don’t apologize, just spend time with those who you feel you may have slighted or hurt. March doesn’t hold any major issues to deal with, but keep an eye on your spending. No matter how good it looks, don’t act in haste and repent in leisure.

archer

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

March brings a tremendous need to retreat from the hustle and bustle that’s been percolating in your life. You need downtime to reflect and consider everything that’s been going on in your life. This may not be your favorite thing to do, but it needs to be done. Patience and tolerance are in short supply now, Sag. It’s best to spend a lot of time with yourself and people with whom you can have an intelligent conversation with. There are big changes with your career, success, and money. Take a deep breath and see how much this chance means to you. Your life is shifting in some mind-altering, life-altering ways.

goat

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

You hate retracing steps in your life because then you feel you’re moving backwards. However, when Uranus moves into Taurus on the 6th sudden inspiration shifts a project from good to remarkable. During the Mercury retrograde period, it’s time to reevaluate how much you are worth and revamp exactly what you expect in remuneration. This requires a full assessment of what you contribute to your job. Make sure you acknowledge everything you do so you recognize all that you bring to the table. Then hold your fire. It’s not quite time to ask for that raise.

water-bearer

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

The gloves come off as Uranus enters Taurus on March 6th, Aquarius. You’re not impressed with the push into gears of a new seven-year rollercoaster ride. So you do what you do; dig in your heels on sheer principle. All right, go ahead. This may make you feel that you have choices but in this case the choice to be made is when to stop fighting the inevitable. Prepare to meet some interesting people who bring positive potential and new beginnings. One of them will become a significant friendship.

fishes

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

March brings awareness that your conscious mind appears to have left town without you and you wonder if you can get anything accomplished. While Mercury is retrograde, tune into your excellent intuition to guide you through this period of reframing, recalibrating, and refreshing plans that you are working on. This will lead to a major breakthrough in solving issues before they rear their ugly heads. The only thing interesting are the plans moving around in your head. Of course, this is a natural state for you, Pisces. Your body may be present around others, but not your consciousness. Make sure you take care of the necessary checks and balances that ensure you are taking care of the practical details in your life, like paying bills, eating, and sleeping.

MEDITATION

The Life That Makes All Things New

Amma-ovalAs 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.

Rose-handThink of Ammachi, and meditate on the orange golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, as is Amma, always! The petals of this divine rose are slowly opening as you chant your mantras to Amma, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a Light within the heart as well music coming to you from the rose. The Light from above and the Light from the rose blend as one...as you swoon into the bliss of Divine Love.

The Sun has entered the sign of 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 can be very 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.

ANIMAL—BEAVER Builder


Beaver...teach me to build my dreams
Including others too.

One mind, one thought
The hearts as one,
Lessons learned from you!

Beaver is the doer of the animal kingdom. Beaver medicine is akin to water and earth energy, and incorporates a strong sense of family and home. If you were to look at the dams that block woodland streams, you would find several entrances and exits. In building its home, Beaver always leaves itself many alternate escape routes. This practice is a lesson to all of us not to paint ourselves into corners. If we eliminate our alternatives, we dam up the flow of experiences into our lives. A doer is characterized by industriousness, and Beaver knows that limitation cancels productivity.

Beaver is armed with very sharp teeth that are capable of felling whole trees. Imagine what those teeth could do to the limbs of predators. From the rear, Beaver is armed with a paddle-like tail that aids in swimming as well as in guarding its behind. This tiny mammal is well equipped to protect its creation.

To understand Beaver medicine, you might take a look at the power of working and attaining a sense of achievement. In building a dream, teamwork is necessary. To accomplish a goal with others involves working with the group in mind. Group mind constitutes harmony of the highest order, without individual egos getting in the way. Each partner in the project honors the talents and abilities of others, and knows how to complete the piece of the puzzle that belongs to them. In working well with others, and sense of community is achieved and unity ensues.

February 2019—the airy, determined, focused energies - is the time to put your ideas into action or to complete some project that has been neglected. The Beaver could also be asking you to settle differences with fellow workers and friends. Beaver tells you to look for alternative solutions to life's challenges and to protect the creations which you have put love and energy into.

Sometimes Beaver may bring you a warning to watch your back! If this is your message, you will sense it. This could become a time of laziness and apathy or fear of opening new doors of opportunity. Move forward! Trust and use caution and all will unfold as planned, in a positive and creative way for you.

RUNE of the Month—Thurisaz

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 Aquarius,  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 Aquarian 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.

STARGAZING FOR FEBRUARY 2019

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 4h New Moon in Aquarius brings the time to finally throw out the old and bring in the new. Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius brings us surprises and reversals. Aquarius loves groups and finding new ways of networking.

The February 19th Full Moon in Virgo brings a special Full Moon and a sign change into Pisces. Your intuition is higher and your emotions are running the show. With this Supermoon we are reminded that matters have come full circle and we have to start over again in some manner or way.

 

The Personal Signs:

Aries Ram ARIES (3/21-4/20)

February keeps you in overdrive until mid-month. Then your engines shift into reverse for awhile. Bouncing from one thing to another doesn’t recharge your batteries. Take advantage of the slowdown and look over the list of what everyone wants you to do. Time for your concrete actions to bring in your abundance.

Taurus Bull TAURUS (4/21-5/21)

In February your energy stabilizes. You don’t fare well when everything keeps moving and changing, but you can’t get a handle on it. A lot of focus on what you are doing and why dominates your thinking now. You realize that you are seeking a completely new direction at month’s end.

Gemini Twins GEMINI (5/21-6/20)

In February the bounce in your step returns. No more living in slow motion because your mind is running at high speed. Your life is in flux and surprisingly you don’t like it. You are still trying to find out what to do to bring you peace of mind.

Cancer Crab CANCER (6/21-7/22)

In February keep your head down as you move forward. You are hard at work on deep levels and there’s not time for running around. You are highly resistant to being pushed in any direction as you dig in your heals and become defensive. Allow yourself to take time to shift your priorities. Remember — you are safe, it’s only change.

Leo Lion LEO (7/23-8/22)

February bring you the return of your natural confidence. The way people behave is a constant mystery to you, testing you to your core. Time to discern the difference between love and approval. Take time to accept the discomfort you feel, rest when you can, your mind, body and spirit to prepare for next month’s big shift.

Virco Virgin VIRGO (8/23-9/22)

. February brings a deep shift, a feeling that you can’t quite explain. It’s as if you’re in the twilight zone. There are bad tempers and questionable behavior all around. To be clear, try writing down what you want to say. All this disruption occurring is the intent to move you forward.

LibraLIBRA (9/23-10/22)

February brings the emotions of “hurry up but take your time.” Remember, you cannot change everything all at once. Although you want to wind up every problem or disturbance into a ball and send it via rocket off the planet, is would not solve everything. Instead, honor your experiences, feel all of those feelings, while being kind and compassionate to yourself.

Scorpio Eagle SCORPIO (10/23-11/22)

February brings quiet times for you to reflect deep within. Make sure you include those you love into your world. You need some perspective. You have the tendency to become so absorbed in your life that you run around in circles. This leads to obsession rather than clarity.

Sagittarius Archer SAGITTARIUS (11/23-12/21)

In February you are in your glory. You are sure that life is going to bring you confidence and inner joy. You stop all the confusion as a brand-new opportunity comes along to take your career to the next level. You don’t waste any time jumping on board.

Capricor Goat CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19)

January is your time of year, right Capricorn? Then why do you feel so queezy and off center? Perhaps your body is giving you a clear signal that it’s not going to support you in maintaining any unhealthy life patterns. As much as your mind prods you to “get going” your physical energy is up and down, leaving you a bit frustrated. Adapt, Cap. And work when you’re energized and take a break when you’re not. Don’t allow expectations to get the better of you.

Aquarius Water-bearer  AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18)

. February brings almost the end of your patience and perseverance. Time to move forward with plans and ideas you’ve had on delay. Strike while the iron is hat. 2019 is the year to restructure your life for your comfort, security, and happiness.

Pices FishesPISCES (2/19-3/20)

February brings a time of extra sensitivity. You are on high alert as you tune into those around you as well as world events. Something is happening behind closed doors, and you can feel it. Just know it’s not about you, Follow your instincts.
