Dog by poolRelaxing by the pool



Whatever is dearest to my heart provides me the inspiration to be truly myself.




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.

Yogi Bhajan

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.

AUGUST brings vacation time and a plan for new beginnings. It’s time for your prosperity to begin. Based on the Rune (Warrior) and Animal (Prairie Dog) chosen as the vibration – August, 2020 brings bold contact with the result of your life-long decisions – representing final endings. This energy will paint a new path across the United States bringing in new ways of life that will not be agreeable to all. The National Conventions of both parties will affect the nation as a whole, as well as individual, for the short or long-term. Do not try to hang on to the old ways or grieve over your past. You will be disappointed and possibly create losses if you try to do so.

You are creating a new reality, and that means that the old paradigms must be released, bringing you to a new plateau, so that by early September you’ll be well on the way to a brand new life style. Above all, do not buy into the anger, judgment, and fear that is so prevalent now! Withdraw, go within, and listen to your inner guidance. That is the place where you will thrive at this time.


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 brings 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.

Prairie Dog calls me
when it’s time to rest

When it’s time to honor
the internal quest.

I go into retreat
So that I may see
A way to replenish
The potential in me.

 Prairie Dog medicine teaches that strength and inspiration can be found by retreating into the stillness that quiets the mind. The strength of this medicine is also knowing when and how to replenish your life force. Prairie Dog medicine people tend to seek self-empowerment in silence and inactivity, where they can access dreams and visions without the intrusion of worldly chaos. When they reenter the world, they are profound and powerful anchors of calm resolve amid life’s storms.

The medicine of Prairie Dog applicable to all of the Marmot Tribe, which includes the Ground Squirrel Clan, the Gopher Clan, the Woodchuck Clan, and the Ground Hog Clan. Just as Native American warriors knew when to charge forward and when to become invisible, the Marmot tribe knows how and when to retreat. The prairie Dog runs for the tunnels when a predator is on its trail; in the winter, it conserves energy by hibernating during the scarce time of the cold moons.

The Prairie Dog has entered the energy of August, 2020, and it may be a warning that your fuel gauge is running on low. You may need a day of silence or retreat from regular activities before to become too exhausted to carry on. Have you put your basic needs at the bottom of your “to do” list? Burning the candle at both ends may weaken the punch you can normally pack when tackling the tasks at hand. Take a much needed break before you crash and burn. Prairie Dog teaches you that, in order to access gifts of inspiration and renewal, you must be at peace with yourself and rested enough to recognize the blessings being offered.

If you have been battling a situation without gaining ground, Prairie Dog reminds you that pushing too hard can create a resistance that does not allow interaction. Take a break! Give it a rest! After a comfortable and relaxed time, or change of scene, you can return to the issue with a fresh perspective. In the meantime, the dynamics of the situation may have changed because your retreat allows the present challenge to work itself out. There is ample strength available if you quit pushing and go with the flow. Prairie Dog says its tunnels run both ways; now it’s time to choose the backdoor exit for some rest and relaxation.

RUNE of the Month – TIEWAZ – The Sky God

The Spiritual Warrior

Teiwaz 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 August, 2020.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The August 3rd Full Moon in Aquarius brings a bright and strong Full Moon. The focus is on endings linked to friends, organizations, unions (including statehood), societies and clubs. If something isn’t working out for you in these areas, it’s best to wrap it up and move on. Keep things on the up side because the annual Mercury-Saturn opposition occurs on the same day.

The August 18th New Moon in Leo brings fiery and dramatic events. This double Leo, Sun-Moon merger is a time to indulge in some royal treatments for the body; massage, pedicure, facial or manicure. Make some inroads in becoming a leader in your kingdom and become known and recognized in your field of endeavor.

LEO: Polarity: Masculine Sign: Fixed Element: Fire
Planetary Rule: 5th House/Sun Body: Heart

FOCUS: I love to nurture with compassion as well as play.




Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

In August your boundless energy returns, accompanied by some newfound wisdom. You see what creates joy, how you intend to create it for yourself, even when confronted with obstacles. Too often you’ve allowed frustration and irritation to get in your way. The need for your life to stand for something is a new feeling. Sit with it and allow it to settle throughout your entire being.


Taurus (4/21-5/21)

In August your boundless energy returns, accompanied by some newfound wisdom. You see what creates joy, how you intend to create it for yourself, even when confronted with obstacles. Too often you’ve allowed frustration and irritation to get in your way. The need for your life to stand for something is a new feeling. Sit with it and allow it to settle throughout your entire being.


Gemini (5/21-6/20)

In August your brain and mouth are in constant motion. You just don’t know how to be quiet. It’s a reaction after months of uncertainty about where you are headed and with what you’ve wanted to say and should you? The uncertainty has left so go for it, Gemini!


Cancer (6/21-7/22)

August allows you to feel comfortable in your new skin. Everything feels shiny and wonderful, and fun. Any conflicts that come up barely ruffle your new inner confidence.  Seeds that you planted six months ago finally begin to sprout now. Time to take a bow as well as ask for that raise.


Leo (7/23-8/22)

August brings awareness that for the first time this year your energy level is giving you the confidence to push forward without hesitation. Any obstacles you encounter are overcome easily and quickly, and the results are amazing. For the first time in a long time you know you can prevail. You are making your relationship with yourself valid and valuable, which it hasn’t been. Remember, nothing ever gets the Lion down permanently.


Virgo (8/23-9/22)

August seems to have you out of sorts. Last month used up all of your reserves of patience and tolerance. Best to keep a low profile, take care and be good to yourself. The strongest, most resilient can find themselves up against a wall. When you get there, and you will, take a time out. Better yet, take a vacation.


Libra (9/23-10/22)

August brings you some conflicting desires. One is to take a vacation. Shifting your whole life requires more effort than you would have imagined. The second is to dig in, push forward, and focus on the final outcome of your goals. There’s room for both, and each one is important for your wellbeing in its own way, Libra.


Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)

In August you turn back to living your life with determination in your heart and a fire in your belly. It’s can’t get any more intense than what you just went through. You are determined to turn over a new leaf, and so you do. You’re mellow and completely open to connecting with others without putting any walls up. This is both a delight and surprise. You see others as they really are and trust yourself to know what to do.


Sagittarius (11/23-12/21)

In August there is no need to move mountains or even lift anything. Life is bright and sunny and you are more than ready to go along with that. Time to book a vacation. You need a change of scene as well as time to recharge those batteries.


Capricorn (12/22-1/19)

August brings the awareness that you’re tired of always being wary, careful, and circumspect. You feel like throwing caution to the wind. So do it, Cap. But only in areas of your life that require spontaneity. Otherwise, be happy with the slow and steady progress of the changes you’re determined to make.


Aquarius (1/20-2/18)

In August, your deep emotional healing process is almost complete, and you feel a shower of creative energy behind it. However, you cannot avoid the last step of clearing out all the mess you’ve stored within you, but couldn’t see it, much less deal with it. All that’s required is releasing the past, not reliving it. You can do it, Aquarius


Pisces (2/19-3/20)

August brings a bounce in your step, a fire in your belly, and a deep knowing guiding you. “Bring it on” is your new motto. You now trust the foundation you have worked hard to revamp and rejuvenate; so much so that you can now use one of your undervalued assets, Faith. The only thing to create a bump in the road is your impatience. There is a difference between the drive to get something done and not moving along quickly enough. Take a deep breath and channel all that frustrated energy into positive channels.
