Newsletter — GEMINI 2015
I learn most when I share my knowledge with others
THE ROSE OF SUMMER
Every 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.
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.

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.

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
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 Aries 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: Pearl, Tiger eye
PEARL — This gift from the sea brings tears to those who receive it. The pearl, as a standard jewelry piece and lovely as it is, reminds us of the oyster and other sea creatures. We have loved many products of nature and have destroyed nature in the process. Pearls are formal, correct and always beautiful.
TIGER EYE — A variety of quartz. Beneficial for spleen, pancreas, digestive organs and colon. Emotional behavior and enhances connection with personal power and will. Creates grounding and centering. Helps soften stubbornness. Enhances clear perception and insight. Slightly masculine energy.
RUNE of the Month – Isa
Ice – Freezing Rain
STANDSTILL — That Which Impedes — 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 chill 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 mid-August)
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.
