Newsletter — Sagittarius 2012
People are my pathway to the future.
Nothing matters more 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 of creation, you will hear the harmony of God.

May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
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’ve got more energy than you know what to do with when the Sun is in your sign this month, Sag. You are full of inspiration and eagerness to act, with opportunities opening to match your ideas. Others are as excited as you are about your vision and things to come, and they are willing to lend their support.
There are some past plans on which you have been following through that seem as though they will hold you back in fulfilling the new ideas which you have dreamed up. What you need to do for the next six months is invest time in this seemingly passive project. In the long run it will simplify your new plans and pay off in its own right, even though now it may feel like an obstacle. With Jupiter still transiting Gemini, 2013 is your year for luck, expansion, financial success and new beginnings through July.

ANIMAL: THE WOLF – Teacher
Wolf, Teacher, Pathfinder
Moon-Dog of my Soul
Teaching how to know.
Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the human race. As humans, we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.
In the Great Star Nation, Wolf is represented by the Dog Star, Sirius, which legend tells us was the original home of our teachers in ancient times. Sirius was thought to be the home of the gods by the ancient Egyptians, and is still considered so by the Dogan tribe in Africa. It stands to reason that Native American people would formulate this same connection and adopt Wolf people as the clan of teachers.
The senses of Wolf are very keen and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of consciousness. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the great mysteries and life.
December 2012 has drawn the energies of Wolf, enabling you to share your personal medicine with others. Your intuitive side may also have an answer or teaching for your personal use at this time. As you feel Wolf coming alive within you, you may wish to share your knowledge by writing or lecturing on information that will help others better understand their uniqueness or path in life. It is in the sharing of great truths that the consciousness of humanity will attain new heights. Wolf could also be telling you to seek out lonely places that will allow you to see your teacher within. In the aloneness of a power place, devoid of other humans, you may find the true you. Look for these teachings no matter where you are. Wolf would not come to you unless you requested the appearance of the tribe’s greatest teacher
Another part of Wolf medicine may be that you are being asked to expand your limited view of a present situation. Doing this may entail a great deal of courage and a willingness to look at new ideas. It could also require that you delete some old ideas to make room for the expansiveness that always comes when you are willing to learn. The gift of wisdom that comes to you when you have walked enough pathways and found enough dead ends to truly know the forest. In the discovery and re-discovery of every inch of ground comes the knowledge that nothing ever remains the same.
You may be aware, in December of 2012, that the stagnation or fear of asserting your viewpoint has bogged down the flow of energy in your life. Wolf is always urging you to seek the teachers and pathfinders that will show you the way to new life experiences. Remember, the teacher or pathfinder may be the still small voice within, as well as a person, a leaf, a cloud, a stone, a book, or the Great Spirit.
To live is to grow, and growing comes through accepting all life forms as your teachers. Become Wolf, and take up the sense of adventure. You may just stop howling and learn to become the Moon.

RUNE OF THE MONTH
Re-Birth — A Birch Tree
Berkana is the Rune of the Life Process. It denotes fertility that promotes growth both symbolically and actually. This growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, or the relationship with one’s self and the Divine. This is a “leading to” Rune in that it is the seed planted that leads to blossoming and ripening.
What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. This Rune is concerned with the power of influencing development and with the flow of beings which brings them into their new forms. Its action is gentle, penetrating and pervasive.
First disperse your resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your Will must be clear and controlled. In regard to the issue, your motives must be correct. Any “dark corners” should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert or professional help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Do you possess these virtues?
Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then through steadfastness and the right attitude, the blossoming can occur. At times events or, more likely, aspects of character, may interfere with the growth of a new life and life process. You may feel dismay at failing to take the right action. But, rather than discouragement, what is called for in December 2012 is diligence. Examine what has taken place over the past six months, your role in it, your needs, and the needs of others. Are you placing your wants before the needs of others? Strip down, as you meditate, until you can identify the blocks to growth in the current situation. Then, penetrating gently, imitate the wind.
You may be required to fertilize the ground again; to re-do something or re-think something, but with the correct preparation, growth is assured.
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.

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!
