Newsletter — PISCES 2012
Financial security is my strength and my goal.
Now withdraw into the yellow flower center of your heart. Meditate on the perfect pink 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 this early spring flower.
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 Spirit.
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.

The Spring Equinox Leads us to
New Beginnings – Flowers, Pets, Easter and Spring.
The Sun has entered PISCES
The sign of PISCES in March, 2012, 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.

Beaver…teach me to build my dreams
Including others too.
One mind, one thought
The hearts as one,
Lessons learned from you!
Beaver is the doer of the animal kingdom. Beaver medicine is akin to water and earth energy, and incorporates a strong sense of family and home. If you were to look at the dams that block woodland streams, you would find several entrances and exits. In building its home, Beaver always leaves itself many alternate escape routes. This practice is a lesson to all of us not to paint ourselves into corners. If we eliminate our alternatives, we dam up the flow of experiences into our lives. A doer is characterized by industriousness, and Beaver knows that limitation cancels productivity.
Beaver is armed with very sharp teeth that are capable of felling whole trees. Imagine what those teeth could do to the limbs of predators. From the rear, Beaver is armed with a paddle-like tail that aids in swimming as well as in guarding its behind. This tiny mammal is well equipped to protect its creation.
To understand Beaver medicine, you might take a look at the power of working and attaining a sense of achievement. In building a dream, teamwork is necessary. To accomplish a goal with others involves working with the group in mind. Group mind constitutes harmony of the highest order, without individual egos getting in the way. Each partner in the project honors the talents and abilities of others, and knows how to complete the piece of the puzzle that belongs to them. In working well with others, and sense of community is achieved and unity ensues.
March 2012—the soft, gentle, and dreamy Pisces energies – is the time to put your ideas into action or to complete some project that has been neglected. The Beaver could also be asking you to settle differences with fellow workers and friends. Beaver tells you to look for alternative solutions to life’s challenges and to protect the creations which you have put love and energy into.
Sometimes Beaver may bring you a warning to watch your back! If this is your message, you will sense it. This could become a time of laziness and apathy or fear of opening new doors of opportunity. Move forward! Trust and use caution and all will unfold as planned, in a positive and creative way for you.

RUNE FOR MARCH 2012
WHOLENESS—Life Forces—The Sun’s Energy
Sowelu is the symbol of Wholeness, that which our nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realization and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the essence of your individuality.
Seeking after wholeness is the heart of the Warrior’s quest. Yet, what you are striving to become in actuality is what you already are in essence. It is your personal myth. That which your soul carries to make conscious and bring into form in a creative way. The Sun symbolizes the path and illuminates the goal, which is the human heart.
A Rune of great power, making life force available to you, Sowelu marks a time for recharging and regeneration, right down to the cellular level. You may actually experience power surges, for the energy involved can be drastic. Although this rune has no reverse position, there is a reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you “spend” your energy now. Know that such a retreat is a retreat in strength, and that it can mark a voyage inward for centering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.
At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels to open yourself up. Let the Light come into some part of your life that has been held secret and shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognitions, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied. There is a prayer that Ammachi teaches called the Gayatri Prayer, that embodies the spirit of this Rune. Salute the Sun in this fashion.
You, who are the source of all power,
Whose rays illuminate the whole world,
Illuminate my heart,
So that I too can do your work.
While reciting the Gayatri prayer, visualize the Sun’s rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, and then streaming out of your heart center in turn. This is an extremely powerful and life-enhancing prayer.
Again, there is caution not to give yourself airs. Yet, even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is your true function. Aim yourself truly and maintain your aim without manipulation.
Practice the art of not forcing. Aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ’s words, I can of mine own self do nothing. For in our own power, we do nothing, even in loving, it is the Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate realization of your personal myth, and the goal of the Superior Warrior
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.
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!
(We have had thousands of responses. Keep the Prayers going for all concerned!)

The March 22nd New Moon in Aries brings the Spring Equinox, focusing on planting the “seeds” of whatever you want to grow in 2012. The urge to break with the past and make new beginnings is strong, but best to wait until after Mercury turns direct on April 13th.
