SECRETS—UNCOVERING THE UNKNOWN
THE SOARING EAGLE – OR THE SNAKE IN THE GRASS
It’s time to fall back with our clocks and prepare for a tough winter,
beginning November 1st at 2:00 AM.
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.
Halloween and All Saints Day remind us of Spirit,
the rising up of the Soul,
the existence of afterlife,
and the importance of our passed-over loved ones.
I am empowered by my Inner Strength and Divine Helper
Oh great and mighty Jupiter,
Your blessings I do seek,
Your angels and guides send to me,
Good Spirits rich and sleek.
Good nature spirits and higher vibrations
Sent by God, your comradeship I love.
For bounty, success, and good fellowship,
My thanks are sent above.
Spirits powerful and great
Your riches I share in fun
And friendship true,
Prosperity descends on me,
My thanks sent deeply to you.
And now my Light is shining bright,
Rich and green for all to see.
Good fortune is my Law of Life,
I give thanks – to the Universe!
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered SCORPIO
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 eiminated from your life as you promote a penetrating insightfulness, 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, but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.
Your focus will be on a number of issues this month because a lot is happening in the heavens as well as on the planet Earth. The first being a change of time, as we go back to standard time on the first. The second being the USA Presidential Election on the third. This election promises not to be determined for quite some time. More than likely not until after the December 16th eclipse.
As for the outcome? It’s complicated. How can we count more votes than we have people in this country? Anger levels, hateful accusations, turmoil, and danger will be all a part of the mix. There promises to be no peace right up to the Christmas Holiday, if then. Communication and travel may be very turbulent as well. During this time, be cautious, stay alert, and be very careful of whatever you put in writing – including your tweets!
RUNE of the Month – KANO
FIRE – A TORCH
KANO – Opening
OPENING — renewed clarity – receive higher knowledge
This is the Rune of opening up, of renewed clarity, of dispelling darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive, and to know the joy of non-attached giving.
Kano is the Rune of the morning of activities, of seriousness, clarity and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of work. The protection offered by this Rune is that the more light you have, the more you practice your spiritual meditations, the better you can see what is trivial and outmoded in your personal life, stemming from your childhood pre-conditioning.
In relationships, there can be a mutual opening up. You may serve as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness, that the light of understanding is once again available to you both.
Recognize that, while on the one hand you are limited and dependent, on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent forces of the universe merge and radiate. You are that center. Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark, there is now enough light to see that the patient on the operating table is yourself!
In this time of the Scorpio energies 2020 – one can expect a darkening of the light in some situation or relationship. A friendship may be dying, a partnership or marriage, some aspect of yourself or your work, an old way of being needs to be let go of, because it is no longer proper or valid for you. You are being asked to recognize that failure for you to face up to this death consciously would constitute a loss of opportunity. Kano is one of the Cycle Runes, and it can point to an inner death of a way of living, because it has been now invalidated through your personal spiritual growth.
So be prepared and willing to give up gladly the old, and to live for a while feeling empty. Spirit cannot enter a vessel that is full and running over. Wait! Have patience! Develop your inner stability, not allowing yourself to be seduced by the momentum of old ways, but instead, wait for the new. Know in your heart at all times that the NEW will become illuminated in its proper time.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

Cycles of the whole…
The journey of the Soul.
Seeped into the mystery of most American tribunal rituals is the legend of the Bat. Akin to the ancient Buddhist belief in reincarnation, in Central America, Bat is the symbol of rebirth. The Bat has for centuries been a treasured medicine of Aztec, Toltec, Toulcan, and Mayan peoples.
Bat embraces the idea of shamanistic death. The ritual death of the sacred healer is seeped in secrets and highly evolved initiation rites. Shaman death is the symbolic death of the initiate to the old ways of personal identity. The initiation that brings the right to heal and be called shaman is necessarily preceeded by ritual death. Most of the rituals are brutally hard on the body, mind, and spirit. In light of today’s standards, it can be very difficult to find a person who can take the abuse and come through it with their balance intact.
The basic idea of ancient initiations was to beak down all former notions of “self” that were held by the shaman-to-be. This could entail brutal tests of physical strength and psychic ability, and having every emotional “button” pushed hard. Taunting and spitting on the initiate was common, and taught him or her to endure the duress with humility and fortitude. The final initiation step was to be buried in the earth for one day and to be reborn without former ego in the morning.
This ritual is very similar to the night of fear practiced by natives of Turtle Island, and to the Egyptian initiation practiced in the Great Pyramid at Giza. (Read Initiation by Elizabeth Haisch)
As the darkness of the grave has its place in these rituals, so does the cave of the Bat. Hanging upside-down is a symbol for sacrifice, and learning to transform your former self into a newborn being. This is also the position babies assume when they enter the world through the womb of a woman.
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!)

THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
As 2020 winds down, you Aries may feel that nothing makes sense. The mix of energies at your door makes it difficult to focus on what your next step should be. With Mercury coming out of retrogrades, and other rare planetary line-ups, it’s best to take one day at a time. As you try to camouflage the deeply disturbing feelings rolling around inside of you, it’s comforting to know that your relationships are the one part of your life that does make sense.
It’s not quite smooth sailing as you emerge from the lessons of 2020. It’s much easier to implement the new ideas and new reality to which you are completely committed. You’ll hardly feel the bump in the road that comes with the eclipse at month’s end. Time to assess your financial status. Give yourself the time and space to do this. Can you maintain your status? What’s important to you now? This reflection will be a continuing theme throughout 2021.
Armed with new appreciation for you and your work, you’re ready to tackle anything and move wholeheartedly and confidently into the future. 2020 brought you the awareness that you’re made of pretty strong stuff. You’re also aware that you don’t have the desire or capacity to be tolerant. Accept this and keep your own counsel. Asking yourself why you are so triggered brings valuable insights, releasing lots of resentment and anger.
You are definitely in the mood to be combative if anyone even looks like they are getting in your way. The problem is that your patience is running thin. You want what you want when you want it and if you don’t get it, you refuse to deal with the consequences. This is your stance for November, 2020. You don’t even want to stop yourself from being pushy, demanding, and a bit manipulative. There’s nothing wrong with what you desire, but you need to find a kinder, politer way of asking for it. A number of possibilities emerge suddenly at the eclipse on November 30th. You didn’t think anything was coming out of your projects, so take a deep breath and don’t rush anything
Thing feel a bit muddy, murky, and yucky as November opens. It goes away as the fog lifts once you take matters into your own hands. You set about rectifying any sort of confusion that occurred in October. Why can’t things be as nice as they appear to be? Be polite but firm to get the answers you want. Also, be ready for the burst of energy that arrives powerfully and swiftly mid-month. You can take some giant steps to manifest a long-term goal you set for yourself earlier in the year; a good reason to enjoy Thanksgiving, after a most difficult year.
In November you are focused on the plans you made earlier in the year. The only thing you need before you hit the launch button is to review and get comfortable with the steps and financial planning you have outlined. You don’t want to miss a trick! Be sure not to overlook the very exciting opportunity that is brought your way at the November 30th eclipse. As you proceed in putting your plan into motion, seek some outside counsel from someone you trust. What you are planning may be outside your comfort zone and you need some support and you bounce between excitement and overwhelming dread. The solution is to hang on to your clarity..
As November opens you are likely to feel a bit overwhelmed as you search to find balance in the middle of a series of unexpected challenges. Individually they are no big deal, but the number and timing of them seems enormous. Take refuge in knowing you can handle them all, no matter how unsettled you feel. In the end, you will emerge victorious and be very proud of yourself.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
There’s nothing worse than to be all dressed up with no place to go. That’s where you are, Scorpio. As you sit and wait for the tide to turn, mid-month. So you can finally run free, and perhaps just a little bit wild. Just know that all the steps you took in 2020 to put this in place are now there, and it’s “go” time. It’s going to take some sharp awareness not to get caught up in the traumas around you. Just know that you have the stamina, skills, and awareness and energy to handle all situations that are knocking everyone else off balance.
This may not be the best time of year for you because you are still filled with some difficult and painful stuff buried inside of you. You have spent 2020 shining your light into the darkness around you and transforming it. Do you still need to keep looking? Apparently yes. You know that bringing out these “ghosts” will liberate you. There is much to think about and many days when you are unable to focus. Take note of the things that make your mind go blank. It’s a sign that you have no desire to continue or connection to the invitation or project being proposed to you. Weed through them so that when the light turns green mid-month, you are clutter free and ready to give your all to your desires and what you value.
As November opens, your long-term hopes and wishes are on a collision course with immediate demands and complications that you didn’t see coming, Cap. Take a moment to realize that “stuff happens”, and in this case it’s because of someone else dropping the ball. Don’t stop to rescue anyone, but just carry on. As you expand your social network, you are shocked to realize that some of your tried-and-true friendships don’t uplift you anymore. The latter part of the month promises to bring a major step into your future, and you never saw it coming. It wasn’t even in the planning stages and dropped in “out of the blue.” This is definitely a turning point for you; one full of promise and potential, leaving you speechless.
In November, you know that your outer world is humming along, but you sense there’s something wrong and you can’t relax. That’s because there’s a final clean-up going on in the deepest part of your consciousness. Let it all flow, and by mid-month you’ll be feeling clear as a bell. As for your career, the light turns green in several areas where you have irons in the fire. You’re not sure which one to focus on at the moment. You realize that you’d rather work for your interest than for someone else’s. As much as you say you like change, you don’t realize that you aren’t always in love with the growing pains that go along with it. This month helps you to learn to go with the flow while not always picking it apart. You will like the result in the end.
November is a month of extremes for you, Pisces; ones that you can use to your advantage, allowing you to shift your life in ways that you had never imagined. This is a month when relationships are not a priority. You want to spend your time with those people you feel closest to. This not only nourishes you, but creates joy and fun. There will be days when you feel you’re pedaling as fast as you can and don’t know if you can find another gear. You are satisfied and excited with what you are accomplishing. As long as you find time to sit quietly and listen to your inner guidance, you will find that gear.
