Change and new experiences feed my Soul!
Prepare for a warmer winter – high winds, along with rain and snow
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.
The Holidays remind us that nothing is more important than the Spiritual Life Fire dwelling within YOU.
There comes a time when you seek to comprehend the true meaning of PEACE, and how you as an individual may find that peace, a peace which the world can neither give you nor take from you.
This is one way. Visualize the blazing Star, still, and yet full of life and light. Identify yourself with the Star, with the center of that Star. Allow your energies to go into the still center of that Star. Within that center you will find that all the anxieties of material life, all the struggles that you encounter in daily life, will fall away from you. In the heart of the Star is deep, eternal peace, and within this peace you are united with those whom you love.
On a daily basis give yourself time to enter this Star Temple, this calming scene. Go into it, away from the noise and turmoil and tumult, the fears and anxieties of the material plane. There, within the center of this Star, find divine, holy peace. Hear within your Soul the music of the heavenly spheres, the music of the Holy Word, the audible life-stream which flows from the heart of the Creator.
Be still now, within your mind and body. Listen inwardly. Beneath all sound, beneath all thought, in the deep silence at the heart canter — the place of creation, you will hear the harmony of God.
—Elizabeth Joyce 12/2002
The Sun has entered Sagittarius
The sign of SAGITTARIUS is signified by the Archer or mythological Centaur and gives you cosmic relief after the ordeals of the intense Scorpio energies. An optimistic and enthusiastic demeanor sustains your one-pointed efforts and sparks a renewed sense of daring and adventure in the outside world. While your path can include sports, long-distance journeys, and philosophical inquiries, steer clear of the temptation to be a dilettante – an amateur in many fields but master of none. As you strive towards truth and wisdom, it is easy to see the universal picture but ignore practical details and then complain about hard work. The fires of this sagacious sign can entice you with illusions of greatness or turn your gaze towards clear, long-range aspirations. It is up to you to see each goal with precision, reach it, and be willing to go on to the next one.
You Sag’s will be unleashing lots of creative energy. There is a very special relationship flowing through your life this month. Alignments show that you may be representing or receiving the influence of a compadre, co-father or co-parent to help you through the residue of recent tough times, and support you in your current efforts. This mentor is an authority in his field and can be a guru, or guide you on some level. This will affect your interactions with others on a local level.
Someone had freed your heart from restraint and allowed it to become open and flowing again. You can feel the love come forth like a waterfall in a mountain stream. Take this opportunity to share, smile, and heal yourself through your interactions with those around you. If you have damages any relationships of late, apologize, ask forgiveness, and it will be yours.
Based on the Rune (Protection) and Animal (Eagle), December 2014 brings a time of forgiveness and new beginnings. On Christmas Eve Saturn changes signs, and moves into Sagittarius, and we reunite with loved ones who may have gone astray – or with whom we had some great misunderstandings, with the sole purpose to release, let go, and reunite on clear, new loving energies. December brings a focus on your well being, your energy levels and future endeavors. It is time for the truth to come build up or renew relationships, and finally let go of any negative situations or painful memories from the past. We begin a new chapter and cycle on New Year’s Eve! With the New Year’s Moon in the sign of Aquarius, freedom, strength, and stamina are available for you to finally make some important and significant changes in 2015 — a year of refreshing renewal.

ANIMAL: EAGLE — Spirit
Touch Great Spirit.
Share your medicine,
So that I may know you too
The feathers of Eagle are considered to be the most sacred of healing tools. They have been used for centuries by shamans to cleanse the auras of patients coming to them for healing. Within the belief system of the Native American Indian tribes, Eagle represents a state of grace achieved through hard work, spiritual understanding, and a completion of the tests of initiation which result in one taking one’s personal power. It is only through the trials of one experiencing the lows in life as well as the highs, and through the trials of trusting one’s connection to the Great Spirit , that the right to use the essence of Eagle is earned
December 2014, brings the vibration of this symbol and is reminding you to take heart and gather your courage, for the Universe is presenting you with an opportunity to soar above the mundane levels of your life. The power of recognizing this opportunity may come in the form of a spiritual test. In being astute, you may recognize the places within your soul, personality, emotions, or psyche that need bolstering or refinement. By looking at the overall tapestry, Eagle teaches you to broaden your sense of self beyond the horizon of what is presently visible.
In learning to fiercely attack your inner fears of the unknown, the wings of your soul will be supported by the ever-present breezes which are the breath of Great Spirit.
Feed your body at this time, but more importantly feed your soul. Within the realm of Mother Earth and Father Sky, the dance that leads to flight involves the conquering of fear and the willingness to join in the adventure that you are co-creating with the Divine.
The Eagle has majestically danced its way into the energies of December 2014, and you are being put on notice to reconnect with the element of Air. Air is of the mental plane, and in this instance, it is of the higher mind, your Blessed Higher Self. Wisdom comes in many strange and curious ways and is always related to the creative force of the Great Spirit.
If you have been living in the past or walking and clinging to former realities, Eagle brings illumination. Eagle asks you to look higher and touch Grandfather Sun with your heart, to love your shadows as well as your light. See the beauty and learning in both, and you will take flight like the Eagle. Eagle medicine is the gift we give ourselves to remind us of the freedom of the skies. Eagle asks you to give permission to legalize freedom and to follow the joy of your heart desires.
CRYSTAL FOR DECEMBER — TURQUOISE
TURQUOISE – was considered by ancients to be a sacred stone, protective against all manners of evil and ill health. This beautiful gemstone is mined in Iran and the southwestern United States. A gift of Turquoise represents friendship and luck. Enhances psychic perception. Helps with communication with your Blessed Higher Self and Spirit Guides
RUNE OF THE MONTH
ALGIZ — PROTECTION
Algiz is the Rune given to warn us to control our emotions. During this transit and transition in the next few months, during the shifts in your life course and accelerated self change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions, the highs as well as the lows. December 2014 offers ample mental exercise and stimulation. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. With this will come trespasses and unwanted influences.
Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always within the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the curved horns of the elk, or the sedge grass, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don’t try to protect yourself from life or pull the veil down and escape by denying what is happening. You will progress on your correct path; knowing that is your protection.
Look carefully at the associations you form at this time. Be thoughtful of your health and alert enough not to add weight to what others are carrying. If you see fit to stay involved with people who are “using you or zapping your energies,” stay conscious of that fact and take responsibility for your own position; then you will always benefit. Regardless of whether your enterprises suffer, do not be concerned. You may not win all you desire, but you will never lose, for you will always learn and gain wisdom from whatever takes place. Temperance and courtesy are the sinews of this Rune’s protective powers.
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!)

Saturn changing signs, moving into Sagittarius on Christmas Eve —
leads us to change – through 2017. It’s always Karmic. Get Ready!
The December 6th Full Moon in Gemini brings the likelihood of coming up with cutting-edge technologies and mindsets that will make information more transparent and available to everyone. There may be an enforced time out for the entertainment industry, recreational activities (gambling?), and things that have to do with children.
December 21st New Moon in Capricorn brings the Winter Solstice. This whammy, New Moon conjuncts the Solstice, makes the end of 2014 seem like a new beginning. We navigate our way through all of the changes that have taken place this year, and realize they all are necessary for our future path, as we celebrate the return of Light.
THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
December brings a desire to have some love, laughter, and fun. You have more Holiday invitations than usual and certainly won’t be bored.
December brings a desire for love. You are feeling bigger than life and it may be impossible to resist the urge to get closer to your beloved. You may also devote some time going over your checking account as you carefully shop for Holiday gifts.
December brings a feeling that “the grass is greener,” and you are missing something. Slow down and ask yourself, is there really anything better out there? You may enjoy two Holiday dinners on the same day, one at noontime and one later in the evening. At New Years, pull back a tad on those purse strings, Gemini.
December brings love and emotions to the surface and you may daydream about “the one that got away.” Just remember this could be a case of “selective memory.” A business offer that comes during Holiday Week could be just what the doctor ordered.
December brings a new type of freedom when Saturn moves into Sagittarius on Christmas Eve. Saturn’s mission is to get you to tighten your belt with frivolities, so begin now with a savings account – or some secret stash, at least! At New Years love is in the air.
Believe it or not, December brings a time for you to get away from that computer. Take a break because the Universe has arranged for you to go off on a trip without a hitch! If you need a visit from your Guardian Angel or Santa Claus, be assured that Jupiter will take care of your needs. Lucky you!
In December, it’s not hard to imagine you with a big smile on your face. It Christmastime! Take the kids out for pizza and a movie. Although you have a knack for arranging events that turn into cherished memories, don’t go overboard on Christmas Day. At New Years, your Libra charm brings in some influential new friends.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
December finds you fun loving for the Holidays. Budget carefully so you won’t spend all of 2015 paying for it. Someone a bit younger catches your eye mid-month and you’re madly attracted. You may be thinking of getting married on New Year’s Eve. Be careful-not yet!
December brings out the wise, humorous side of you. Time for some good old-fashion fun. First impressions are important and any positive physical change will benefit. As 2015 opens, remember that anything you’ve honestly earned will finally come your way!
December fills you with the Holiday spirit. After all the conflict’s you’ve had to moderate, both at home and on the job, by the end of this month you’ll feel rejuvenated. At New Year’s a family member may be in a desperate need for a loan. Help if you can, but not at your own expense.
December brings you energy for success. Prepare to be boulder and a bit rebellious on a regular basis. It’s fun to bring those sales. Something you’ve been hiding is about to be revealed at Holiday time. Prepare yourself to do some ‘splainin’.
December brings a lightheartedness around the home front. It will be a most happy Holiday Season, especially if you open your heart and home to your loved ones. At New Years you focus attention to earning donations for your favorite charity group.
