Newsletter – TAURUS 2011
I embrace a healthy lifestyle.
Allow your heart to open to the freshness of Spring.
Initiate your leadership ability
That sets you apart from the crowd.
Take charge and make decisions,
But always remember to value the opinions of others.
All this dedication, action, and activity
Brings out the Soul Purpose.
Follow the Light of the Divine
To reach your goal, and help others
Achieve their dreams.
The month of May brings the Kentucky Derby, graduations, high school proms, weddings, flowers, warm days, the beach, and love.
The Sun has entered TAURUS
Earthy and fixed Solar TAURUS, sets you in rhythm with all that is stable and steadfast. This is a good time to promote productivity in the realms of personal finance, artistic ingenuity, and animal care-taking. Put your head, heart and hands into meaningful creative work and self-assurance will follow. Symbolized by the Bull, Taurus offers tenacity enhanced by patience. By forsaking laziness, lethargy, and obstinacy, you can reap the rewards of discipline and structure. Above all, break free from attachment to external material possessions by focusing on your inner beauty. Be an advocate for graceful simplicity.
Think green, gold and glitter as Jupiter travels through your 1st House this year, Taurus. This fortunate period, which happens only once every twelve years, ups your financial accumulation. With luck, you can greet December, 2011, with a fatter bank account than you began with at the start of 2011. Your paycheck could double, or you could receive an inheritance, a lottery or contest win, a windfall or settlement, or a gift from a relative. Curb the urge to use your credit; instead save up and pay cash for your big ticket items. If you plan to purchase a new home, shop around for the best mortgage rate and be sure to seal the deal before September’s end.
Mars moves into Taurus on the 11th, increasing your determination and talent for follow-through, which could bring out your stubborn streak at times. It’s okay to push yourself, but resist the urge to do the same with others. Focus on keeping an open mind. Listen up – because others viewpoints may be as valid as your own, and you might learn something, Taurus.

ANIMAL: Dolphin — Manna
Dolphin…breathe with me,
The breath of the Divine,
Manna of the Universe,
In Oneness we entwine.
Dolphins speak to us of the breath of life, the only thing that human’s cannot go without for more than a few minutes. We can live without water for days and without food for weeks, but oxygen is the source of our sustenance. Within the breath we encounter the rhythm of energy that all life emits. In changing the rate or rhythmic texture of our breath, we can tap into any other life form or creature. This is a very easy way to connect with the Divine Energy of Spirit as well as with your own personal body rhythm.
Dolphin is the keeper of the sacred breath of life, and teaches us how to release emotions through Dolphin breath. Dolphin creates rhythm, swimming through the water and breathing before submerging, then holding its breath for the duration of underwater travel. As Dolphin comes to the surface again, it blows its breath out in a manner resembling the popping of a cork. We can use this same technique to pull the stopper on our stress and tensions and create total relaxation for ourselves. This is a good exercise to use as you begin to meditate, before entering the silence.
Manna is the life force. Manna is present in every living atom, and is the essence of Great Spirit. Dolphin teaches us how to use life-manna through its breath. It revitalizes each cell and organ, and breaks the limits and dimensions of physical reality so that we may enter the Dreamtime experience.
Dolphin was traveling the oceans one day as Grandmother Moon was weaving the patterns of the tides. Grandmother Moon asked Dolphin to learn her rhythms so he could open his female side to her silvery light. Dolphin began to swim the rhythm of her tide weaving, and learned to breathe a new way. As Dolphin continued to use this new rhythm, he entered the Dreamtime. This reality was a new and different place from the seas he had known.
Dolphin began to discover the underwater cities in the Dreamtime, and was given the gift of the primordial tongue. This new language was a sound language that was brought by Spider from the Great Star Nation. Dolphin learned that all communication is pattern and rhythm, and that the new aspect of communication was sound; he carries this original pattern to this day. Dolphin returned to the ocean of the Great Mother, and was very sad until White Whale came by and told Dolphin that he could return to be a messenger to the Dreamtime dwellers anytime he felt the rhythm and used the breath. Dolphin was given a new job. He became the carrier of messages of our progress. The Dreamtime dwellers were curious about the children of Earth, and wanted us all to grow as one with Great Spirit. Dolphin was to be the link.
Dolphin has appeared as our guide for the month of May, 2011. This year will link together all children of the Earth. This is a time when you will notice a growth in telepathic power, as you become a link to some solution for the children of the Earth. You are to link with Great Spirit and bring forth answers to your own questions and those of others. In addition, this can mean a time of communication with the weather forces and the rhythms of nature. You are hereby put on notice to be mindful of your body rhythms and the pattern on energy being fed to you by the Creator. Imitate Dolphin in stressful and tense times, and ride the waves of relaxation and laughter, spreading joy into the world. Breathe and experience the manna so freely given. As we go through earth changes and planetary reform, break existing barriers and connect to the Dreamtime or Great Star Nation. Know that we are healthy, whole and complete in the eyes of the Everliving One.
If you get into a dark state that feels unbearable, know that you are simply forgetting to breathe. You may be under stress and your body is crying out for manna. You may be starving your cells and organs no matter how many vitamins you are taking. Your natural cycles may be fouling up if you are having negative thought processes. Pay close attention to your health and to your feelings. If you are on edge or just tense, take time to relax and breathe the life force into your muscles. Focus on releasing old breath at the bottom of your lungs and refilling your respiratory system with regenerative manna. Breathe from the diaphragm and fill the lungs to capacity. Then exhale from the chest to the belly, allowing the body to relax as you breathe out.
Another message may come if you are feeling lazy, logy or slow, and that is that many signals are carried through universal tides or waves. You may be failing to sharpen and use your natural sonar. To detect these wave patterns you may need to realign yourself with the natural rhythms within your body. They can be thrown off through world events or extreme weather upsets anywhere on the planet. Then it will be necessary to use the Dolphin breath to connect to universal awareness and signals through quiet time and meditation.
For May, 2011, Dolphin reminds us to dive deeply into the water, play by the coral reefs, and to discover the beauty and rhythm of the breath.

RUNE of the Month
INGUZ — FERTILITY—New Beginnings—The Hero
This Rune is akin to the moon, to the yin, the intuitive energy with its urge toward harmonizing and adjusting the sphere of personal relationships. It embodies the need to share, the yearning to be desired, a search after similarities.
The completion of beginnings is what Inguz requires. It may mark a time of joyous deliverance, of new life, a new path. A Rune of great power, Inguz indicates that the force is available to achieve completion, resolution, from which becomes a new beginning. It may be timely that you complete a project now. If so, make that your first priority. Perhaps a difficult state of mind can be resolved, clarified, turned around. The appearance of this Rune in the month of May, 2011, indicates that one must fertilize the ground for one’s own deliverance.
All things change and we cannot live permanently amid obstructions. With deliverance comes the release from tensions and uncertainty. As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a release. The period at or just prior to birth is often a dangerous one. Now it is time to enter the delivery room. Movement involves danger, and yet movement that is timely leads us out of danger. The Rune Inguz signals your emergence from a closed, chrysalis state. Prior to “breaking out” you may be required to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship, a deep cultural pattern or some activity that was quite proper to the self you are leaving behind.
Inguz counsels preparation. Being centered and grounded, your space cleared of all unwanted influences, and seeing the humor, you are indeed prepared to open to the Will of Heaven, and can await your deliverance with a calm certainty.
