Newsletter — PISCES 2013
My goal is financial security.
THE ONENESS I CALL GOD
Whose presence I have recognized,
Whose pleasure or displeasure I have sought,
Has been seeing His life through my eyes.
He hears through my ears,
His breath comes through my breathing,
His intuition I have felt,
Therefore I know!
I know that this body
Which I had thought to be my own,
Is really a Temple to God.
I did not realize this before.
I did not know that this body
Was a Shrine to God.
Not knowing that God experiences life
Through Man —
One is always seeking God
In some person or energy
Apart and aloof from this World.
But all the time,
God is in oneself!
—Elizabeth Joyce 2.21.92
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The days grow longer but the time grows shorter!

The Sun has entered PISCES
Pisces, the sign of the entwined fish reminds you to build your emotional strength and replace the urge to escape reality and live in a dream world. As the final water sign of the Zodiac, Pisces give you a rich inner life with a vivid imagination, artistic creativity and psychic attunement. Without a specific, mundane direction, indecision can become a daily plague and memories of past failures can haunt your consciousness. By eliminating cranky notions and mental chaos, enlightenment can come as a deeply entrenched new aspect of your life, which will bring the path to simplicity and the gift of the key to Divine Understanding. Strive to be sympathetic to the suffering millions and share your healing love Universally. Unswerving faith in your self and the divine forces bring you sustenance from the invisible powers, which is the ultimate reward in the cycle of soul searching, Universal love and warmhearted compassion.
As February, 2013 draws to a close, we are ready for brighter, spring-like days. But the March winds can blow a fast chill on us. We must wait a little longer for the green buds and spring flowers to appear. March reminds you to be careful of the economy and to begin to conserve resources.
Faith is the magical elixir of Pisces, that can vanquish hesitation, paralyzing anxiety, and inner qualms. It can transform your life, offering increased psychic receptivity, Universal love, and Divine enlightenment. Compassion is essential now that you are in the final phase of your zodiac journey. Aries brings the Spring energies and new beginnings as well as new growth. Altruism must take precedence over egotism, as empathy for humanity replaces individual pride and the competitive impulse. Understanding, as a tool for accepting life’s mysteries, should be the special gift of every Piscean and it can be yours as well. No matter what your sun-sign is this solar cycle can make you an imaginative visionary with the mastery to benefit others in a variety of ways.

ANIMAL: THE HUMMINGBIRD
Joyful little sister,
Nectar you crave!
All the sweetness
Of the flowers,
Is the love you gave
Hummingbird is associated with the Ghost Shirt religion, which taught that a certain dance done properly would bring about a return of the animals, and that white people would disappear. Once again the Original People would know the joy of the old ways. In Mayan teachings, Hummingbird is connected with the Black Sun and the Fifth Astral World. Hummingbird can give us the medicine to solve the riddle of the contradiction of duality.
The song of Hummingbird awakens the medicine flowers. Hummer sings a vibration of pure joy. Flowers love Hummingbird because nectar-sucking brings about the reproduction of their families. Plants flowers, Honeysuckle, live because of Hummingbird.
Hummingbird can fly in any direction — up, down, backwards, and forwards. Hummingbird can also hover in one spot and appear to be motionless. Great Spirit created Hummingbird to be slightly different from other feathered creatures.
Because of their magical qualities, Hummingbird feathers have been used for a millennium in the making of love charms. It is said that Hummingbird conjures love as no other medicine does, and that Hummingbird feathers open the heart. Without an open and loving heart, you can never taste the nectar and pure bliss of life.To Brother and Sister Hummingbird, life is a wonderland of delight — darting from one beautiful flower to another, tasting the essences, and radiating the colors.
March 2013 brings Hummingbird as its special healing medicine. Enjoy your love life and its joys. Know also that your presence brings joy to others. You join people together in relationships which bring out the best in them. You know instinctively where beauty abides and, near or far, you journey to your ideal. You move comfortably within a beautiful environment and help others taste the succulent nectar of life. Hummingbird holds the Bow of Beauty, which is delicately inlaid with gold and silver flowers, pearls, and precious jewels. Hummingbird disdains ugliness or harsh words, and quickly flies away from discord or disharmony.
So — March 2013 brings laughter and a time to enjoy the many gifts of our creator. Drop your judgmental attitude and relax. Hummingbird will no doubt give you a flash of Spirit, darting here, there, and everywhere. Get ready for a strange new burst of energy which may send your senses reeling. Hummingbird hears celestial music and is in harmony with it. Hummingbird may invite you to an art museum or a concert. Hummingbird energetically embraces the highest aesthetics.
Never be coarse in front of Hummingbird, for this is a fragile medicine which may have no understanding of worldly affairs. Beauty is the target, and the Hummingbird mission is to spread joy or be destroyed. Hummingbird quickly dies if caged, caught, or imprisoned. So — follow your Hummingbird and you will soon be filled with paroxysms of joy, and experience a renewal of the magic of living!

RUNE OF THE MONTH
MARCH — SOWELU
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.
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!)
