It’s time to put my own needs first!
It’s time to dress and enjoy the fall.
It’s time to clean up, clean out and prepare for a tough winter – beginning now.
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.
Halloween, at month’s end, and All Saints Day remind us of Spirit — and the importance of our loved ones
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
The Sun has entered LIBRA
Libra, representing the scales of justice and inability to make decisions, follows the Autumn Equinox and signifies the communion feast. It’s time to bring all of our relationships into balance. As you follow the pathway of open communication with loved ones and key people in your life, your social sense grows, bringing opportunities to strongly influence the community and promote its welfare. While the fine arts and cultural affairs are your playground, remember to anchor ideals and visions in material form. Your charm, persuasiveness and grace can win you public admiration. Libra, the second air sign, reminds you to seek peace of mind and balance your male and female energies. Enjoy periods of quiet contemplation, but don’t allow them to become episodes of day dreaming and escape from reality. Your ultimate need at this stage is to be a firm decision maker and not sit on the fence as you so like to do.
All of your best-laid plans of last month can go astray now. The heavens are in transition. The stars and planets are altering their output and resetting their Stargazing Rhythms, and this energy propels us to do the same. This combination of Astro-Forces means that many of us will have to get back to that drawing board called life.
HUGH, unexpected changes are on the way, so prepare for some excitement, instability, and much drama! Opportunities will be popping up everywhere, so many that you might feel torn when deciding among all the possible next big things to come your way. Jupiter has just moved into Libra for thirteen months, so be ready for positive changes and perhaps a dream or two coming true. Do not lose sleep over this uncertainty that you may experience now, however. Libra stars reveal that solutions are close at hand, and FATE will soon provide you with the answers and direction you are looking for.

ANIMAL: DEER — Gentleness
DEER — so gentle and loving you are.
The flower of kindness embraced from afar.
One day Fawn heard Great Spirit calling to her from the top of Sacred Mountain. Fawn immediately started up the trail. She did not know that a horrible demon guarded the way to the Great Spirit lodge. The demon was trying to keep all beings of creation from connecting with Great Spirit. He want all of the Great Spirit creatures to feel that Great Spirit did not want to be disturbed. This would make the demon feel powerful, and capable of causing them to fear him.
Fawn was not at all frightened when she came upon the demon. This was curious, as the demon was the archetype of all the ugly monsters that have ever been. The demon breathed fire and smoke and made disgusting sounds to frighten Fawn. Any normal creature would have fled or died on the spot from fright.
Fawn, however, said gently to the demon, “Please let me pass, I am on my way to see Great Spirit.” Fawn’s eyes were filled with love and compassion for this oversized bully of a demon. The demon was astounded by Fawn’s lack of fear. No matter how he tried, he could not frighten Fawn, because her love had penetrated his hardened, ugly heart.
Much to the demon’s dismay, his rock-hard heart began to melt, and his body sank to the size of a walnut. Fawn’s persistent love and gentleness had caused the meltdown of the demon. Due to this gentleness and caring that Fawn embodies, the pathway is now clear for all of Great Spirit’s children to reach Sacred Mountain without having to feel the demons of fear blocking their way.
Deer teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are trying to keep us from Sacred Mountain. Like the dappling of Fawn’s coat, both the light and the dark may be loved to create gentleness and safety for those who are seeking peace.
If Deer has gently nudged its way into the vibrations for the month of October 2016, you are being asked to find the gentleness of Spirit that heals all wounds. Stop pushing so hard to get others to change, and love them as they are. Apply gentleness to your present situation and become like the summer breeze, warm and caring. This is your tool for solving the present dilemma you are facing. If you use it, you will connect with Sacred Mountain, your centering place of serenity, and Great Spirit will guide you.

RUNE OF THE MONTH
Gebo is the Rune showing that a union or uniting or partnership of some form is at hand. You are, however, put on notice not to collapse yourself into that union. For true partnership can only be achieved by separate and whole beings who retain their separateness even in unity and uniting. Always remember to let the winds of heaven dance between you.
At all levels, in love relationships, business matters, in partnering of any kind, this counsel applies particularly when you are entering into a partnership with your Blessed Higher Self. Establishing an open, flowing channel between the Self and the Higher Self is the ultimate form of human partnership. For out of it comes a union with the Divine. God always enters into equal partnerships.
Thus Gebo, the Rune of Partnership, has no reverse for it signifies the gift of freedom from which flows all other gifts.

STARGAZING FOR LIBRA 2016
Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.
The October 16th Full Moon in Aries brings highly innovative scientific and technological discoveries. This energy is particularly interesting because it occurs just before the USA Presidential Election, and can bring an unexpected monkey wrench thrown into the works. (So appropriate in the Year of the Monkey.) This augurs a general sense of disruption.
The October 30th Mew Moon in Scorpio brings endings and new beginnings. This disruptive energy puts a damper on freedom in love, sports, and travel. With its dark intensity, this New Moon is a perfect lead-in to the Halloween festivities.
