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.
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
Daylight savings time is over and – the days are longer but the time grows shorter!
and All Saints Day remind us of Spirit — and the importance of our loved ones.
SCORPIO energies bring a renewed interest in sharing. You become more public oriented and are searching for love as well as career recognition. Be determined that early month trauma, fears, pessimism, repression and doubts can be emanating from your life as you promote a penetrating insight, willpower, and the skill to solve mysterious riddles. This is the height of the season. Autumn 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, as it rules death and transformation. but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.
RUNE of the Month
ALIGZ — Protection, Sedge of Rushes, An Elk
Algiz is the Rune given to warn us to control our emotions. During this transit and transition in the next few weeks, with 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. November 2018 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.

FOX — CAMOUFLAGE
Where are you?
Under the ferns?
Becoming the forest,
So I can learn?
Are you watching,
Invisible to me?
Trying to teach me?
To become a tree?
Reddy the Fox has many allies in the woodlands, including the foliage, which offers protection and much medicine. Fox is seemingly able to vanish admist the lush undergrowth of the forest. This flora is Fox’s ally. The ability to meld into one’s surroundings and be unnoticed is a powerful gift when one is observing the activities of others.
Another natural gift of Fox is the ability to adapt to winter by changing color, like the chameleon. Its rich, white winter coat allows Fox to blend into the snow when the leaves no longer linger. Fox medicine involves adaptability, cunning, observation, integration and swiftness of thought and action. These traits may include quick decisiveness, and sure-footedness in the physical world.
Fox’s ability to be unseen allows it to be the protector of the family unit. If danger arises, Fox is johnny-on-the-spot. Nanih Waiya. Great Spirit in the Choctaw tongue, honors fox with the duty of keeping the family together and safe. This is accomplished through Fox’s ability to observe undetected, without making others self-conscious. Fox is always concerned with the safety of family members and is an excellent talisman for those traveling far afield.
Fox has chosen to share his energy with us throughout the month of November 2018, so take this as a sign for you to become like the wind, which is unseen yet it is able to weave into and through any location or situation. and you would be wise to observe the acts of others rather than their words at this time. Use your cunning nature in a positive way; keep silent about who and what and why you are observing. In learning the art of camouflage, you need to test your abilities to pull this off.
One test exercise that may be helpful to you is deciding to be invisible. In doing this exercise, you might try to visualize your body as a part of your surroundings, full of the colors of the location you are in. See in your mind’s eye yourself moving with stealth and grace, unheeded by others. If you do it right, it works! You can leave a party unnoticed or become as unobtrusive as a piece of furniture, watching the developing drama of the subjects you are studying.
While learning from Fox, you might also gain confidence in your ability to know instantly what will happen next. After observing for awhile, you will become aware of a certain predictability in given situations and be able to quickly make your move. Fox medicine teaches the art of Oneness through its understanding of camouflage. This applies on all levels, from rocks to God. With Fox medicine, you are being asked to see all types of uses for oneness.
Much like the clowns at the rodeo, Fox can keep the raging bull from stampeding a friend or family member. Fox can use silly tactics as a brilliant camouflage move. No one could guess the sly power behind such ingenious maneuvers.
