BALANCE IN RELATIONSHIPS
Those I associate with will help me achieve my goals.
October, 2015 brings the time to release the past and focus on manifesting your future.
Oh great and mighty Jupiter,
Your blessings I do seek,
Your angels and guides send to me,
Good Spirits rich and sleek.
Good nature spirits and higher vibrations
Sent by God, your comradeship I love.
For bounty, success, and good fellowship,
My thanks are sent above.
Spirits powerful and great
Your riches I share in fun
And friendship true,
Prosperity descends on me,
My thanks sent deeply to you.
And now my Light is shining bright,
Rich and green for all to see.
Good fortune is my Law of Life,
I give thanks – to the Universe!
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered LIBRA
LIBRA energies bring…Airy Libra is the only Stargazing sign that is not represented by a human or an animal symbol. The scales of justice symbolize the need to balance feminine and masculine principles and reminds us to apply the laws that enable diverse people to mingle amicably. This happy equilibrium can flower only if harmony and tranquility are found and well cultivated. To achieve Librian balance in this autumn cycle, reinforced decisiveness is needed over all other attributes. Try to discover your treasure cove, your place of calmness, of inner serenity and artistic genius, but avoid the shadowy pathways of idle fantasies and superficial dodges from responsibility. Living close to your loved ones, building strong family ties as well as close friendships, will give you peace of mind that an external world cannot guarantee.
Home, family and the domestic scene are your major themes for 2015, along with a possible new home or refurbished one, an active social life and opportunities to shine on the job. As the Pope brings his message of family unity and love, let us all join in the prayer, and expand the thoughts to world peace and harmony. Jupiter has moved into Focused Virgo and travels through your Sixth House of hard work, career growth, health, and family pets. This fortunate planet will prompt you to relocate, remodel or redecorate, or rent or buy a new home. You’ll also enjoy many happy moments with family while entertaining friends and colleagues. Include potential networking contacts in this mix because one or more of them will come in handy later on in 2016, to advance your career aims. Also, you may have a desire to improve your office skills; you might develop an interest in computer skills, graphics, or math. Whatever you choose to do for yourself this year, it is sure to bring you many hours of hard work, success and satisfaction.
Based on the Rune JOY and the Animal Lynx, October brings strength, success and abundance for 2015. Do not force confrontations, meditate for direction, and remember that Mercury remains retrograde through October 9th. Keep your Spirits up and work with the energies. That which is not rushed will have the best outcome for you. Broaden your sense of Self beyond the horizon, embrace your opportunities, and remember to share your good!

ANIMAL: LYNX — Secrets
You know the secrets
So very well,
The dreamtime and the magic,
But you never tell.
May I learn to hold my tongue,
And observe like the Sphinx,
Powerful, yet silent,
The medicine of the Lynx.
It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask the Lynx. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get the silent Lynx to speak. To be confronted by the powerful medicine of the Lynx signifies that you do not know something about yourself or others. (On a larger scale, it could reflect secrets of one of the presidential candidates, Bill Cosby or someone else, or the government coming out into the open.)
Lynx is the keeper of secrets of lost magical systems and of occult knowledge. Lynx has the ability o move through time and space, and go into the Great Silence for knowledge to unravel any mystery. Lynx is not the guardian of secrets but, instead, the knower of secrets. The problem lies in getting the Lynx to choose to instruct you. He or she would rather be off chasing a bird or kicking sand in your face rather then running an instruction class or running circles around you.
Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance. If this medicine is strong in you, you will receive mental pictures concerning other people and the exact things they have hidden, either from themselves, from others, or from you. You will see their fears, their lies, or their self-deception, (or Ego.) You will also know where they have the hidden treasure, or if there is any. You never speak of these revelations or of how you know of them – you just know!
The only way you can coax information about yourself from the Lynx medicine person, (in case you have forgotten where you hid the treasure), is to respect the practices of his or her traditions, and honor the knowledge given. If you go to a Gypsy with Lynx medicine (knowledge), you must pay respect by giving them money after the reading. If you go to a Choctaw medicine person, he or she will reach into your mid-section, or use other traditional methods to help you. A blanket or tobacco should be given in exchange for the medicine they have performed for you. This operative is known as the law of the Lynx people, or an equal exchange of energy, to create a lasting balance, and is practiced by Native American, Gypsy, Sufi, Hindu, and Egyptian cultures, among others.
The Lynx medicine permeates the month of October 2015, and you can be sure that secrets are afloat. This is the time to meditate and listen to your higher self. Be still and pay attention to the messages your receive either in the form of mental pictures or of singing or whispering into your ear. Perhaps you will receive this information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth will be signalling you in some manner.
When Lynx shows up at your door, listen up! Brother or Sister Lynx can teach you of your special personal power and many things you have forgotten about yourself. Lynx can lead you to lost treasures, and lead you to forgotten brotherhoods or sisterhoods.
Some people believe that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt was not a Lion but a Lynx. This Lynx does not speak very much; rather, with an enigmatic smile, the great cat watches over the sands of forever.

RUNE of the Month – Joy — Wunjo
Wunjo is the Rune of the fruit bearing branch and quite appropriate as we are in the month of fall, with the leaves falling away to make room for new beginnings. With the beginning of a new energy, the term of travail is ended and you have come in to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive its blessings, whether they be in material gain, your emotional life or in a heightened sense of your own well-being. This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition. Now you can rejoice at having been carried across the gap by the Tao, the Holy Spirit.
Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy that was blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths. The Soul is illuminated from within at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.
There is a new clarity, which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely that you submit, for Wunjo is a Rune of restoration causing the Self to become properly aligned with the Blessed Higher Self. You will enter into the “State of Being.”
Things may be slow in coming to fruition. The process of birth is long and arduous with fears for the safety of the child within. A crisis, a difficult passage, if ever so brief, may be at hand. Consideration and deliberation are called for, because light and shadow still exist and are intermixed so doubt and sarcasim may interfere with joyousness if this period is not understood as a timely process for your Soul growth. So stop your anxiety and ask yourself whether you possess the virtues of seriousness, sincerity and emptiness. To possess these virtues is to also have tranquility, which is the path to clarity, patience and perserverance.
Seen in the light of truth, the pathway of life is a test. Stay focused in the present, remaining sincere towards others, trusting your process, and you will know that you cannot fail.
