People value my knowledge and experience.
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.
—Elizabeth Joyce — 12/02
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
November brings two powerful eclipses, and a renewed interest in sharing. You become more public oriented and are searching for love as well as career recognition. Daylight saving ends on Saturday, November 2nd, and daylight grow shorter. Be determined that early month trauma, fears, pessimism, repression and doubts can be eliminated from your life as you promote a penetrating insightfulness, willpower, and the skill to solve life’s mysterious riddles. Mercury goes direct on November 10th, bringing renewed interest in your projects and family ties. This is the height of the season. Autumn and the Holiday Season has truly arrived. Enjoy entertaining and socializing with friends and colleagues. Above all, cultivate the skill of open, empathetic communication in place of subtle deception. Scorpio is an intense sign, and is not in a realm of easy answers, but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.
The Sun has entered SCORPIO
You may be feeling a bit disoriented and confused as November opens, as we move into a powerful, full Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on the 3rd. Your plans are moving along, but results are very mixed and confusing for you. Things that seem certain for you one moment, may seem impossible to attain or work out the next. Mercury has retrograded in your sign and most matters will not smooth out for you until it turns direct on the 10th. Go slow, work thing out as best as possible and take time to clarify every detail until it becomes clear for you. There is a second eclipse in Taurus on the 17th. The time is good for meditation, helping others, and watching your health as well. However, by Thanksgiving weekend your confidence will be back and you can begin to look at some unprecedented good fortune.

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.
November 2013 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 November of 2013, 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 – MANNAZ
The Essence and Starting Point in Life
Mannaz represents the starting point which is the Self. Its essence is water, the sign of Scorpio. Only clarity and the willingness to change is effective now. A correct relationship with yourself is primary, for from this flows all possible correct relationships with others and with the Divine.
Remain modest – that is the Oracle’s counsel. Regardless of how great may be your merit, be yielding and devoted, moderate and correct, for then you have a true direction for your way of life. Be in the world but not a part of it. That is implicit here, however do not be closed, or narrow, or judging. Remain receptive to impulses flowing from the Divine within and without. Here you might contemplate the words from Hamlet: “To thine own self be true.” These words also may be contemplated, “strive to live the ordinary life in a non-ordinary way.” Remember at all times what is coming to be and passing away, and focus on that which abides. Nothing less is called for from within you now. July will be a time of major growth and rectification, and as a rule, rectification must come before progress.
This is not a time for trying to gain credit for accomplishments, but rather to seek to fulfill the time span, content to do your tasks for the task’s sake which is the meaning of eminent activity. This will be more of a problem for those whose eyes are always on the goal than for those who have not forgotten how to play and can more easily and readily lose themselves in doing the work for its own sake. Herein lies the secret of experiencing a True presence.
If you take Mannaz, the Rune of Self, and cut it down the middle you have the Rune for Joy with its mirror image. There is a subtle caution here against carelessness. The dancing acrobatic energy of balancing is called for in November 2013. The Self is required to balance within the Self. Nothing in excess was the second phrase written over the temple in Delphi. The first phrase was know thyself. With these works the order of the Runes begin.
Above all – this month of November – do not give yourself airs. The momentum of past habits is the challenge here. In the life of Spirit you are always at the beginning.
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!)
STARGAZING FOR SCORPIO 2013
November 3rd New Moon in Scorpio brings a total Solar Eclipse, bringing you the gift to forgive everyone, especially yourself. About two weeks after this eclipse is the time for letting go of the past so you can move on. This eclipse is especially powerful because Scorpio eclipses are rare and will bring a significant turning point in your life over the next six months. (Last one was 1939)
The November 17th Full Moon in Taurus brings the time for you to ferret out your inner demons. In order to affect a cure it is not necessary for you to deal with the problem on the same level it occurs. Time to detox, wrap things up, and get rid of those bad habits.
Mercury is retrograde through November 10th.
Polarity:Feminine Sign: Fixed Element: Water
Planetary Rule: 8th House/Mars, Pluto Body: Reproductive Organs
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)

Smile Taurus, luck is on your side as November opens! Pamper yourself and Holiday shop a little. Begin your New Year’s review of where you are, how far you’ve come, and where you are headed next. Devote extra time to family and loved ones and plan a special event around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Life gets back on track once Mercury goes direct on November 10th. You’ll finally be able to get the answers you need. The last week could bring hoped-for news, as well as great bargain hunting. Your job has a high priority and the workload gets heavy over the next six months.
Your social life takes off in November, and it takes time juggling to see all the friends who call on you. A friend of a friend could become a new romantic interest. You may feel pushed and pulled as you plan for the Thanksgiving holiday. Use your good judgment and try to compromise.
Home is where the heart is in November, Leo. Host a family dinner at Thanksgiving and a get-together with friends over the weekend. You are socially desirable and very bust throughout the month. Keep you eye on your budget and avoid big spending.
You’re in the mood for fresh scenery, especially after the 10th, when Mercury goes direct. Head out of town over the Thanksgiving weekend. You may want to take a class and learn a new skill. Neighbors, siblings, and friends play a larger role in your life, as well as your oldest son. An old friend reappears around the 25th.
Relationship misunderstandings work out after the 10th, once Mercury turns direct. Anticipated good news could arrive by mid-November. Be especially cautious with promises made now, because people may stretch the truth and tell you only what you want to hear.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
November brings you the incentive you need for new personal directions and the initiative to move strongly into the future. People will be a key component of your ambitious personal agenda. By seeking their support and offering the same, you’ll find a clear path.
You will need to balance yourself and your work, with time enough for yourself and your interests. Begin an exercise program along with a healthier diet. You benefit at Thanksgiving, as it’s easier to connect with family and friends, bringing your brand of enthusiastic optimism.
Knowledge is your passion in November and you are in frequent touch with people at a distance and from far-away places. Your Holiday Season begins early, with an active social life and time with friends and family. A romantic relationship could turn serious or you could meet someone new at the Full Moon.
Aquarians’ move into domestic high gear as November opens. You could be in the process of moving, planning a Thanksgiving get together, and readying your decorations. Relationships are upbeat, but this is not the time to initiate anything new. You could enjoy a short trip with friends at month’s end.
You’re on the move in November with a vacation trip or a visit with family and friends. You’re in touch with those near and far, running endless rounds of errands. You’re at the center of the Holiday social scene, Pisces. Be alert for new social contacts. Romance could bloom with a friend at Thanksgiving time.
