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.

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

The Sun has entered the sign of CANCER

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

July brings new beginnings with an eye toward a prosperous and successful future. Expect upsetting weather conditions and heavy electrical storms, tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as out of control fires. July begins in a laid back, slow mode, but speeds up by mid-month. Many momentous decisions will have to be made, bringing you to a new plateau and by mid-September you'll be well on the way to a brand new life style.

ANIMAL: THE MOOSE

Moose — Self Esteem

Moose
Help me honor
The gifts I can give
And recognize my worthiness
As long as I live

Moose is found in the North of the medicine wheel, as is the Buffalo. North represents the place of wisdom. Self-esteem is the medicine of Moose because it represents the power of recognizing that wisdom has been used in a situation and that recognition or a pat on the back is deserved.

Moose is the largest member of the deer family and has great strength. The call of the male moose is an awesome thing to hear on a musky spring night. His pride in his maleness and his desire to share his seed with a Moose cow are displays of his sense of self-esteem. The bellow of a male Moose can be viewed as a positive force, since it represents his willingness to  tell the world about his feelings.

This tell the world trait contains a joyfulness which only comes with a sense of accomplishment. there is no greater joy than a job well done. This trait is therefore not a seeking of approval, but rather an enjoyment of sharing because of the spontaneous explosion of joy that comes from the deepest part of one's being.

The wisdom woven throughout this scene is that creation constantly brings forth new ideas and further creation. Moose is telling us that joy should be shouted with pride. The wisdom in doing this shouting is  that JOY is  catching.  In a sense, the bellowing is a way for us all to lighten up and give ourselves or each other a well done, bravo, well done!

Moose medicine people have the wisdom to know when to use the gentleness of the Deer and when to activate the stampede of the Buffalo. They understand the balance of giving orders to get things done and having the willingness to do things for themselves. The wisdom of Moose medicine is akin to the Grandfather Warrior who has long since put away his war paint and is now advising the young bucks to cool their blood.

Moose medicine is often found in elders who have walked the good earth and have seen many things on their Earth Walk. Their joy lies in being the teachers of children, and in being the first ones to give encouragement. This is not to say that Moose medicine people do not use their wisdom to warn as well as to give praise, because they do. Moose medicine people know what to say, when to say it, and to whom!

The elders are honored in tribala law for their gifts of wisdom, for their teaching abilities, and for the calmness they impart in Council. If you are wise beyond your years and have the gift of Moose medicine, use this gift to encourage others to grow. There are may facets to the wisdom of Moose medicine.

July 2017 brings Moose into the vibration for the opening of a new season, to remind us about strength and endurance in the coming months. If you have reason to feel you've accomplished something on your life journey then be sure to jump for joy. This may be a habit you have broken, a completion of some sort, an insight on a goal, or a new sense of self that you have fought hard to earn. This is a time for feeling harmonious pride, and of recognizing those who have aided you in this process.

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 Cancer energies for July 2017, advises us that a peeling away is now called for. This is the Rune of radical service!

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

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

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

 

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

Don’t go too deep in the money jar, though.

The Sun has entered PISCES

fishes

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.

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.

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!

STARGAZING FOR AQUARIUS 2017

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

mirrordandelion

AQUARIUS

astrologyline

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?

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!

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.

water-bearer

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.

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.

SCORPIO energies bring a renewed interest in sharing. You become more public oriented and are searching for love as well as career recognition. Be determined that early month trauma, fears, pessimism, repression and doubts can be eiminated from your life as you promote a penetrating insightfulness, willpower and the skill to solve mysterious riddles. This is the height of the season. Autumn has truly arrived. Enjoy entertaining and socializing with friends and colleagues. Above all, cultivate the skill of open, empathetic communication in place of subtle deception. Scorpio is an intense sign, and is not in a realm of easy answers, but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.

RUNE of the Month – Ehwaz
Movement

RUNE-17Movement

Movement—Progress—A Horse

Ehwaz represents the Rune of Movement, of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes, new life; movement also, in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.

Ehwaz is the Rune of transit and transformation. There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying awareness of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or the development of an idea. A relationship also needs to undergo changes and transformations if it is to maintain growth and life. Personal moral effort and persevering steadfastness are called for during the month of November.

Let it be said this way, "As I cultivate my nature and character, all else follows." A horse is this Rune's symbol because it progresses gradually. From Bronze Age artifacts we find the sun linked to the horse. The Horse symbolized the Sun and was thought to be pulling it across the sky. In November of 2016, the Rune Ehwaz is saying you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety, of surety in your position. Now it is time to turn again and face the future reassured and be prepared to share the good fortune that comes. This last comment, the sharing, is significant, as it relates to the power of the Sun to foster life and illuminate all things in its light. Be that!

You are put on notice during the time of SCORPIO energies that an opportunity is at hand and should not be lost or ignored. Be certain that what you are doing, or not doing, is timely. There are no missed opportunities but we simply must recognize that all opportunities are not for us. If you are feeling blocked or clouded and unclear about what action to take, meditate on it. Consider what is timely and appropriate to your nature. The opportunity at hand may be not to act with childish or outdated responses and to grow in strength. Always remember that what is yours will always come to you.

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

ANIMAL — The RAVEN

raven

Raven
Black at pitch,
Mystical as the Moon,
Speak to me of Magic,
I will fly with you soon.

Throughout time, Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been true in many cultures across the planet. It is sacred in the ways of the Shaman to honor the Raven as the bringer of Knowledge, Wisdom and Magic. If the knowledge brings sadness or bad medicine, then the honor comes from fear rather than respect. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been working and investigating metaphysical areas in which they should not have, without proper training. A spell they have cast may have backfired on them! Rather than analyze the darker side of sorcery, realize that you will fear the Raven only if you need to learn about your inner fears, superstitions and your self-created demons.

Raven's magic is a very powerful medicine that can bring to you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of that which is not yet in form and the beginning of learning manifestation. The void is called the Great Mystery. Great Mystery existed before anything came into form. Great Spirit lives inside this void and emerged from Great Mystery. The Raven is the messenger from the void. It's cry and message represents Natural Law.

During the month of November—in the time of intense Scorpio energies—you are about to experience a change in consciousness. This may involve walking inside the Great Mystery on another path at the edge of time. It would portend of a signal brought to you by Raven that says, "You have earned the right to see and experience more of life's wonderful magic." Raven's color - Black - is the color of the void - that black hole in space that holds all of the energies of the creative source.

In the teachings of the Shaman, the color black means many things, but it does not mean evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the energies of the void, the road of the spiritual or non-physical. The blue-black color of the Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness, and a changeability of form and shape that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and absent healing. In any healing circle, Raven is present. Raven guides the magic of healing and the change of consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel "dis-ease" or illness of mind, body and spirit. Raven brings in the new state of wellness with balance and perfection from the Void of Great Mystery and the Field of Plenty.

Raven is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and its intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, Raven would be the carrier of that energy flow. The intention would be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

Raven has chosen to come to us at this time of a significant change of energy, November 2016. Do not try to figure this out, for you cannot! It is simply the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the sparkling synchronicity of this alchemical moment. Will you recognize it and use it to further enhance your spiritual growth? Can you accept it as a gift from the Great Spirit? Or will you doubt it, limit it and the powers of the Great Mystery by trying to explain it away?

It may be time to call on the Raven as a courier to carry an intention, some energy healing, a thought or a message to an estranged loved one. Raven is the patron of smoke signals or Spirit messages represented by smoke. So, if you want to send a message or prayer to the Blue Road of Spirit, in order to contact the Ancients and their knowledge, call on Raven. Or, who knows, perhaps the Ancients are calling out to you.

Remember—whatever happens for you personally—this magic moment came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is for you to bring it into the light. In doing so, you will have honored the magic within each one of us.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram

Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

bull

Taurus (4/21-5/21)

After the 11th, you’ll be a force to be reckoned with at work. If you’re in a position of authority, you plan some major changes after the New Year. Don’t be surprised if a long-distance loved one knocks on your door over the Thanksgiving weekend. Serious financial decisions are easier to make at month’s end.

twins

Gemini (5/21-6/20)

You definitely won’t get a lot of rest this November, Gemini, but you don’t want to miss a single moment of what the Universe has in store. Watch your finances, as your luck and money flow slow down mid-month. A change is in store at month’s end; perhaps a new lover, and the end of an old relationship.

crab

Cancer (6/21-7/22)

November puts you in the mood to spend every minute of free time with the ones you love; you may even be joined by someone from a distance. A fling could be turning into a serious relationship.

lion

Leo (7/23-8/22)

November brings the perfect time to travel, Leo. If not, make some plans for later and be open to new experiences. Expect to meet some fun, interesting, and unusual types. Don’t rule out a charming admirer who is very different. If you’re wanting to earn some extra cash, this is the time.

virgin

Virgo (8/23-9/22)

November is an interesting month, Virgo. Your family wants you to spend more time sharing than being continually on the job. That’s fine, except for the extra work on hand.

The Thanksgiving weekend brings an urgent situation, either with a partner or a child.

November brings travel for you, Sag. Could be long distance or across the ocean. Don’t hold back because of distance, as this is an experience you cannot miss.

Thanksgiving weekend brings professional advice and financial plans. All works out in your favor.

goat

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

You have some pretty good news coming this month Capricorn. You could rekindle a relationship that once was dear to your heart. For you romance is practical, so keep both feet on the ground.

water-bearer

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

November brings travel, travel, travel. You could be going to the other side of the country or across the water. Passports ready? Good, get packing.

MEDITATION

candle-flame

It's time to dress and get ready for fall.

We may never be remembered for doing great, great things in life, but if we do all little things with Love, we will never be forgotten by a few, and will be remembered with warmth and a smile.

The Change of Seasons reminds us of Spirit

fall-oak sprayEvery heartbeat is God's name to me. Every breath of life is ecstasy. Every night is bliss and I awaken in your company. Then dawn plays a symphony revealing to me my personal reality. Every life is a living God to me. Every thing is an expression of God's personality. Every kiss is God's romance and every love is embedded in God's originality.

I hear, breathe, sing and speak of God. Each day your plan reveals it's universal truth. From the past to the future, connected, is how each day shall be. Speaking thy name, I will dwell on you eternally. —Yogi Bhajan

The Sun has entered VIRGO

Virgo, symbolized by the Corn Maiden, accentuates the path of personal service and purity. It represents work and service to mankind of the highest order. Through dedication to physical fitness and holistic  healing, your body can become a sacred temple for the spirit within, allowing it to emerge into your everyday life. Don't expect miracles overnight, and most Virgo's don't as they are quite practical. Be gentle with yourself as you eliminate those nasty habits of doubt, criticism and worry. Reawaken the wonder of learning and the satisfaction of simple joys, but turn away from the fanaticism that fosters a workaholic temperment or leads you into a hermit-like existence. Efficiency and industriousness are your twin assets, leading to complete success at this time, the harvest cycle of the year.

Virgos usually receive the Zodiac's backlash. They are detailed, organized, methodical, chaste and very insecure. Very critical of themselves, they seem to expect the same from others, which can cause resentment and jealousy. However, they do make up for this with their charm, as they are of the most unassuming variety. Virgo's approach is usually subtle, surprisingly tender, their standards are high, but they ultimately can accept differences and flaws once they get to know and trust you. With a Virgo, trust is never given, it has to be earned.

Based on the Rune (Growth) and Animal (Horse), September 2016 brings a time of moving forward no matter what burdens you need to carry with you. This is a time of planning and overcoming your obstacles.

ANIMAL: THE HORSE

The HORSE

Mighty Horse
With power to run
Across the open plains,
Or to bring the vision,
Of the shields
Dancing in the purple 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. which was 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


GROWTH
Re-Birth — A Birch Tree

Berkana is the Rune of the Life Process. It denotes fertility that promotes growth both symbolically and actually. This growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, or the relationship with one's self and the Divine. This is a "leading to" Rune in that it is the seed planted that leads to blossoming and ripening.

What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. This Rune is concerned with the power of influencing development and with the flow of beings which brings them into their new forms. Its action is gentle, penetrating, and pervasive.

First disperse your resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your Will must be clear and controlled. In regard to the issue, your motives must be correct. Any "dark corners" should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert or professional help. Modesty, patience, fairness, and generosity are called for here. Do you possess these virtues?

Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then through steadfastness and the right attitude, the blossoming can occur. At times events or, more likely, aspects of character, may interfere with the growth of a new life and life process. You may feel dismay at failing to take the right action. But, rather than discouragement, what is called for in September 2016 is diligence. Examine what has taken place over the past six months, your role in it, your needs, and the needs of others. Are you placing your wants before the needs of others? Strip down, as you meditate, until you can identify the blocks to growth in the current situation. Then, penetrating gently, while imitating the wind.

You may be required to fertilize the ground again; to re-do something or re-think something, but with the correct preparation, growth is assured.

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

VIRGO

astrologyline

The Fall Equinox Leads us to Reaping Value – Crops, Cooler Weather, Preparation, Holidays.

The September 1st New Moon brings a solar eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo. This is an especially intense period and can bring mix-up and a scandal to the Light. Pass on starting something new until Mercury turns direct on the 21st.

The September 16th Full Moon brings a lunar eclipse at 24 degrees Pisces. This is a very dangerous and difficult Full Moon because it gets in the way of peace. The sharp Mars square is in the middle of this energy bringing overly forceful and destructive behavior that can indicate an increase in hostilities at home or abroad. It's a test to see if you can adapt and adjust.

The September 30th New Moon brings a Blue Moon at 8 degrees Libra. There are rewards in store over the next six weeks providing you will put your nose to the grindstone. Time for peaceful new beginnings that bring us love, peace, and harmony.

Mercury is retrograde through Sept. 21st

THE PERSONAL SIGNS

ram Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

September brings no rest for the Aries folks. Little time for family and friends as well. After the 22nd the party’s on again. You may decide that enough is enough in a current relationship. Be sure to tend to your responsibilities and take your vitamins for stamina.

bullTaurus (4/21-5/21)

Although you will be busy with lovers, recreation, and creativity, Saturn could present some unexpected difficulties. Don’t get cranky now. In business, you might consider taking on a partner. Don’t be so quick to shake hands on it, take your time until Mercury turns direct on the 21st.

twinsGemini (5/21-6/20)

September has you feeling outgoing, sociable, and friendly. Over this next year it may be difficult to focus on work, but your weekends promise to be fabulous! You may meet someone different who is not like anyone you’ve ever dated. As for your money, be careful mid-month about a financial spat. Some people just refuse to be satisfied.

crabCancer (6/21-7/22)

Politics and education tip your list as September opens, Cancer, especially if they involve elders, kids, or animals. Mercury is retrograde for the first three weeks of September, so if you are planning a Labor Day weekend with the family and kids, prepare for many unexpected delays. Most of all, if you car stalls out, don’t get cranky. Try not to buy anything mechanical or invest in a new vehicle until Mercury turns direct on the 21st.

lionLeo (7/23-8/22)

September brings Jupiter into Libra, making you quite lethal in the charm department. Prepare to easily convince anyone of just about anything. You seem to be temporarily endowed with a superpower, but be sure to use it only for the good, Leo. If not, I promise you that you won’t like the backlash of karma.

virginVirgo (8/23-9/22)

Fasten your seat belt and prepare for new changes in September, Virgo. Your money is on the upswing this next year. You may decide that you’re not willing to stay in a relationship any longer, or you could fall in love at first sight. It's not hard to imagine you’re winning something; a sought after contest, an award, or perhaps even the lottery. Hey, it only takes one ticket.

scalesLibra (9/23-10/22)

September brings you all kinds of new openings and good luck. Door will open for you, many of them involving fortunate partnerships. If you’ve had a tough time of it lately, you can count on all that coming to an end. Mid month you could meet someone who will prove to be a powerful force in your life. You may not feel an attraction at first, with love or business, but take the time to get past what’s on the outside because you will love this person's inner Soul.

Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

After Mercury turns direct in September 21st, you’ll be able to connect with that who has been missing. You are in the mood to partner up, both personally and professionally. If you’ve met someone you care for, now may be the time to go to the next level. Surprise, you just may have that raise or promotion you’ve been waiting for at month’s end.

Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

September brings a full social calendar, and if you can’t keep up with offers and invitations, it may be time to set priorities. You’re a part of a fun group where an old lover could show up unexpectedly. Count on a whole lot of invitations now, and opportunities to mingle with some very interesting people. You are inspired with great big changes and information about your new, chosen field. This all could stir up some confusion on the home front, so be prepared for some upsets and misunderstandings.

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

Traveling in September brings upsets and delays, so verify reservations and meetings several times on the trip. After Mercury goes direct, this confusion will ease up. Mid-month you may decide to take on a partner in business, but make sure they are just as dedicated to making it a success as you are. Best to wait a bit, until Mercury turns direct on the 21st.

Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

As September opens, it’s time for travel and new experiences. If on vacation, choose a place where you’ve never been before, and enjoy exploring. Group camaraderie goes quite well, and spending time with your sweetie tops it off. Your money experience is about to change with the two eclipses in September. Don’t worry; you’re always up for change, because you find it invigorating. Remember that sudden windfalls fall into this category as well.

Pisces (2/19-3/20)

September brings the opportunity to work out problem relationships through compromise. Making amends will go smoothly, too. Your mission is to resist doing anything that might cause the need for it. Major change is on the way, with two eclipses in your sign and opposite. Someone new comes your way, for better or worse, and they will rock your world. Take your time getting to know them. Stability is also on your carpet as money improves ,and building up your savings begins.
