May 21 — June 21, 2010
JUNE brings new Brides and Graduations:
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 Rose of Summer
Every heartbeat is God’s name to me. Every breath of life is ecstasy. Every night is bliss and I awaken in your company. Then dawn plays a symphony revealing to me my personal reality. Every life is a living God to me. Every thing is an expression of God’s personality. Every kiss is God’s romance and every love is embedded in God’s originality.
I hear, breathe, sing snd speak of God. Each day your plan reveals it’s universal truth. From the past to the future, connected, is how each day shall be. Speaking thy name, I will dwell on you eternally. Yogi Bhajan
The transit of the Sun through airy GEMINI brings you face to face with the principle of duality. You can divide the world in half, making contradiction the norm, or expand your mental horizons to synthesize several approaches simultaneously. Choose this latter path during the phase of the Twins. By elevating your intellectual standards of higher knowledge and honest communication, your consciousness taps into new veins of rich ore. Exult in the exploration of reading, writing, short travels and scientific inquiry. By placing an emphasis on wit, good humor, and the potency in your voice and hands, this cycle can sate your curiosity and let the creative genie out of the bottle.
ANIMAL: THE BAT
BAT = Rebirth
Sacred Bat flew to me
From the darkness of the cave.
Answers it gave,
Birth, death, rebirth,
Cycles of the whole,
Never-ending, just eclipsed,
The journey of the Soul.
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 preceded 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 shamen-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 Haich)
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 fomer self into a newborn being. This is also the position babies assume when they enter the world through the womb of a woman.
Bat has appeared for the energies of Gemini, and this symbolizes the need for a ritualistic death to some way of life that no longer suits your new growth pattern. This can mean a time of letting go of old habits, and of assuming the position in life that prepares you for rebirth, or in some cases Spiritual Initiation. In every case, Bat signals rebirth, a new beginning for some part of yourself or the death of old patterns. If you resist your destiny, this can become a long, drawn out or painful death of the old, or a change in the way of living. The Universe is always asking you to grow into your future. To do this, you must die the shaman’s or Egyptian’s.
JUNE CRYSTAL: Pearl, Tiger Eye
TIGER: A variety of quartz. Beneficial for spleen, pancreas, digestive organs and colon. Emotional behavior and enhances connection with personal power and will. Creates grounding and centering. Helps soften stubbornness. Enhances clear perception and insight. Slightly masculine energy.
FEHU – POSSESSIONS
Another concern for Fehu is with conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in time of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of a well-nourished self is the ability to nourish others.
Observe what is happening in your life. If there is negativity, look at this with an open perspective and ask , “What lesson do I need to learn from this in my life?”
When there is an occasion for joy, do not be seduced into mindless joyousness. Remember that some doubtful situations can always arise and come in the form of many guises. Now that you have reached the top, stay sharp and awakened. All that is presented to you and this fulfillment is a part of the coming and passing away. In dealing with good fortune, know where it originates, from the Grace of the Divine, and recognize where your true nourishment lies.
HEALING CIRCLE OF LIGHT
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 New Moon in GEMINI on June 12th brings a feeling that it’s time to make some new beginnings with a cool head and rational outlook. Time to organize and bring together anything that feel scattered.
The Full Moon in CAPRICORN on June 26th brings a Lunar Eclipse so you will need to take precautions. Avoid scheduling any major lifetime changes like a wedding, divorce, a major move or surgery on this date.

THE PERSONAL PLANETS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
You will begin to feel a restless urge that will continue throughout the summer months.
Between June 6th and 8th you can expect pure luck! At the June 26th Full Moon Eclipse you could experience difficulties with a supervisor, or difficulties with a promotion to a top spot.
Someone from your past or current circle could disappoint you by failing to keep a promise. If someone asks for a loan, be skeptical. The June 26th Full Moon may trigger a need for travel, or you may need to care for an out-of-town relative. A pleasure trip is not a good idea at this time. Also be very careful on the road and with your driving. Conflicts with people or a power figure is possible.
Your career and family obligations are in conflict, so be cautious. The more your career responsibilities expand, the more distance you’ll create with loved ones. They will tolerate this for only so long. Think again if you desire to quit and begin a home-based business. You may regret this decision down the road. Financial stress and strain surround the June 26th Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. Pending financial issues will reach a peak and it’s possible that you or your partner’s income could decline. Be sure all of your homeowners, auto, and home insurances are paid up.
It’s time to reflect on your past and learn from it; resolve regrets, make amends, seek advice. The result will bring optimism and knowledge for your future. Sometime in June you’ll feel a restless desire for change. This can be both positive and negative, depending on your timing and decisions. Premature action can backfire and cause difficulties with people close to you. It is also possible that career conditions and relationships could trigger a snap decision. Take a deep breath and walk carefully. All this will be resolved over the summer months.
You may have a change of income, increased expenses, difficulties with taxes, or an inheritance at this time. You may also find that your company benefits have been reduced. Avoid mixing money with friendships. If you are a leader of a group, be sure to get their okay before you spend. Sat the June 26th eclipse, you may find a problem with co-workers on the job. Someone has a hidden agenda and may attempt to undermine your efforts and them play the blame game. Walk away! Expect the unexpected with travel.
You may decide that you’d rather go it alone than maintain the status quo, and that your future looks brighter if you move on single. Keep in mind though, that what you want now you may regret in the not-to-distant future. June brings fresh energy enhances career success but this could be limited by difficult people. Curb your impatience and frustration. Follow instructions, even if you know better, and allow the decision-makers to prevail.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
Take your time getting to know these people and don’t tell them any deep dark secrets, no matter how good you may feel. Avoid travel in June if you possibly can. At the June eclipse delays on the road as well as lost luggage is possible. Your popularity is high and you could meet someone significant to your future, either for business or romance.
You are more interested in your home life which could prompt you to think about a home based business. Better think again, as this is not good timing and you may regret it down the road. Slow down before you dash into the future. At the June eclipse financial tensions arise. Your income could decrease and you could have a major expense, possibly relating to one of your children. Investments require close watching. You could connect with a terrific career contact who changes your life!
If you travel in early May you may be disappointed, as the trip will not live up to your expectations. Find an alternative for the restlessness you feel. Togetherness and closeness with your sweetheart brings quality time and a rare treat. June brings a family change, someone may be moving out, or a relocation, or expensive remodeling. Hold off with a new roommate or asking a romantic interest to share your home. Someone far away, whom you seldom see could visit. They bring you insights and prompt you to question some long-held beliefs.
You could have an increase with expenses, a decrease in income as well as mix-ups with credit and loans. This is a good month for household projects, clearing closets and clutter. June brings stress and strain in the workplace. Expect power plays and controlling people, which you should do your best to avoid. Be wary, as someone who appears to be a new friend could prove to be the opposite. At month’s end you could meet someone you are drawn to who could change you life!
May brought the time to plant the garden and get your patio in shape. Now you can move inside to do touch ups and repairs. June brings tensions on the home front, sparked by family and domestic issues. Disagreements over spending, expenses, children, and major purchases are possible. Try to focus on values and practical realities. You enjoy your job more than ever, and your Star is shining, Pisces!
