The Life That Makes All Things New
As you accept with patience and surrender the difficulties you encounter throughout life on a daily basis, so will you find flowing into you through the Crown Chakra, a light or life-force which will remove all anxiety and pain, making each day a new experience. This comes to each one of us gently, slowly, as we open ourselves from within to the gifts of Spirit. Occasionally you will become aware of a glow within your heart, or of a light feeling, and you will become aware of the harmony which is shaping your life right now through the power of the Divine.
If you direct the right thoughts to those around you, and begin to put the action of the Law of Love in front of any circumstances you may find yourself in, you will find that these troubles and upsets will gradually smooth themselves out. Events will begin to work more harmoniously for you and you will begin to feel, "God is very good to me." You will begin to realize that within you, as you practice your daily meditations, there is a power building, a feeling of Love, which is helping you actively. This will guide you towards the desired balance of Love, Peace and Harmony within your heart.
This glow within your heart which brings to you such sweet happiness and joy may remain for a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days - and then may disappear. Never fear for slowly this power and gratitude will increase in you. As your life continues, you will experience this renewing energy more often, for you are Ascending up a spiral of light and vibration which will eventually bring you, as a Daughter or Son of God, into the kingdom of eternal light and bliss.
Pray and and meditate on the yellow golden rose, the flower of God. You are looking at this rose from afar, as something outside of you. But it is within your heart, always! The petals of this divine flower are slowly opening as you chant your prayers, opening to receive the golden warmth of sunshine and power from above. There is a light within the heart as well music coming to you from the flowers. The light from above and the light from the flower blend as one...as you swoon into the bliss of Divine 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.
Although Mercury retrograde is usually a Stargazer's favorite whipping boy, there are more subtle signs and planets to pay attention to as well. There is an exception though. The North Node of the Moon is not only considered an indicator of good fortune, but it, and its counterpart, the South Node only moves backwards. This month the nodes of the Moon change signs, always an important event. On May 9, 2017 the North Node will move out of Virgo into Leo/Aquarius. For the next eighteen months it will move through Leo until it moves back into Cancer on November 7th, 2018. Leo, of course, is the sign of nobility. People born under the sign of Leo often carry themselves with a demeanor that sets themselves apart from others. Leo natives act as if they were born to rule, and they think highly of themselves and their abilities. These people feel as if they must come first, can be very stubborn, and have to have their own way both at work and at home. (Donald Trump's rising sign is 28 degrees Leo)
Aquarius is the sign of tolerance and humanitarianism, and its natives often devote their time to worthy causes. They also think highly of themselves and their abilities, can be highly stubborn, especially with family, friends, and co-workers. Both Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs, so when these two people meet they are likely to go head to head, digging in their heels, with each one refusing to give in to the others.
During this transit - the key lesson will be just how much do you want to give to yourself, and just how much do you want to give to others.
Based on the Rune (Journey) and Animal (Horse), May 2017 brings a time of .

Mighty Horse — Power to run
Across the open plains,
Or to bring the vision of the shields
Dancing in purple dream rain.
“Stealing horses is stealing power,” was a statement made frequently in historic native America and a reference to the esteemed role in which the horse played in the native cultures.
The horse represents physical power as well as unearthly power. In Shamanic practices throughout the world, Horse enables the Shaman to fly through the air and reach heaven.
Humanity made a great leap forward when Horse was domesticated. a discovery akin to fire. Before Horse, humans were earthbound, heavy-laden , and slow creatures indeed. Once humans climbed on Horse’s back, they were as fast and free as the wind. They could carry burdens for great distances with ease. Through their special relationship with Horse, humans altered their self-concept beyond measure. Horse was the first animal medicine of civilization. Humanity owes an incalculable debt to Horse and to the new medicine it brought. It would be a long walk to see one’s brother or sister if Horse had not welcomed the two-legged rider upon his back.
Today we measure the capacity of engines with the term “horsepower,” a reminder of the days when Horse was an honored and highly -prized partner with humanity.
Dreamwalker, a medicine man, was walking across the plains to visit the Arapho Nation. He carried with him his pipe. The feather in his long, black hair pointed to the ground, making him a man of peace. Over the rise of a hill, Dreamwalker saw a herd of wild mustangs running toward him
Black Stallion approached him and asked him if he was seeking an answer to his journey. Black Stallion said, “I am from the Void where your Answer lives. Ride on my back and know the power of entering the Darkness and finding the Light.” Dreamwalker thanked Black Stallion, and agreed to visit him when his medicine was needed in the Dreamtime.
Yellow Stallion approached Dreamwalker next and offered to take him to the East where Illumination lives. Dreamwalker could share the answers he found there to teach and illuminate others. Once again, Dreamalker thanked Yellow Stallion and said that he would use these gifts of power on his journey.
Red Stallion approached, rearing playfully. He told Dreamwalker of the joys of the balancing work and heavy medicine with the joyful experience of play. He reminded Dreamwalker that he could better hold the attention of those he taught when humor was integrated into the lesson. Dreamwalker thanked him and promised to remember the gift of joy.
Dreamwalker was nearing his destination. The Arapaho Nation was close at hand. White Stallion came to the front of the herd. Dreamwalker mounted White Stallion’s back. White Stallion was the message carrier for all the other horses, and represented wisdom in power. This magnificent horse was the embodiment of the balanced medicine shield. “No abuse of power will ever lead to wisdom,” White Stallion said. “You, Dreamwalker, have made this journey to heal a brother in need, to share the sacred pipe, and to heal Mother Earth. You have the knowledge through humility that you are an instrument of Great Spirit. As I carry you on my back, you carry the needs of other people on yours. In wisdom, you understand that power is not given lightly but awarded to those who are willing to carry the responsibility in a balanced manner.
Dreamwalker, the Shaman, had been healed by this visit of wild horses, and knew his purpose of coming to the Arapaho was to share this gift with them.
In understanding the power of the Horse, you may see how to strive for a balanced medicine shield. True power is wisdom found in remembering your total journey. Wisdom comes from remembering pathways you have walked in another person’s moccasins. Compassion, caring, searching, loving and sharing your gifts, talents , and abilities are the gateways to power.

RUNE OF THE MONTH
A Journey, Communication, Union, Reunion
Raido is concerned with communication, with the attunement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of a journey when what is above and what is below unite and become one mind. This journey is the journey of the Soul. Moreover, the approach of that which is realized from innermost sentiment rather than the force of circumstances. A simple prayer for the journey of the Soul is: I will to do Thy will.
Such a simple form of prayer is proper, it seems, on almost any occasion. It is a suitable preamble, in particular, to healing. Raido is another of the Runes in the Cycle of Self-Transformation.
Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time we must remember that we are not intended to rely entirely upon our own power, but instead to ask what is right action. Ask through prayer and meditation, through addressing your own knowing, your body and the connection to your Blessed Higher Self knowing, the Witness Self, the Teacher Within. Once you are clear, then you can neutralize your refusal to allow the right course of action to flow through you. Not intent on movement, be content to wait. While you wait, keep on removing your resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from trying to make it all happen disappears.
As always, this journey is towards self-healing and unity. This can include nations with nations, as the Middle-East conflicts build to a dangerous state of affairs. The planet and each one of us are concerend here with nothing less than an unobstructed, perfect union. However, this union with Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Keep within your limits. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self towards the Self.
Trust your own Process _ that is the essence of this Rune. Keep on cutting away the illusions. Stand apart from like-minded others. The notion of safety and strength in numbers does not apply at this time. This part of your soul journey cannot be shared. Innermost feeling, spontaneosly expressed, is the only right action now. This Rune urges you to undertake your journey, your quest _ and if you have aleady begun _ focus and continue.
This Rune also asks you to be put on notice, particularly with your personal relationships. At this time, ruptures are more likely than reconcilations. Effort will be required on your part. Keep your good humor; whatever happens, how you respond is up to you, and will set the way.
The requirements of your Soul process may totally disrupt what you had intended for yourself this month. Hoped-for outcomes may elude you. Yet, what you may regard as detours, inconviences, disruptions, blockages and even failures or deaths will actually be re-routing opportunities for you, with union and reunion the only abiding destination.
Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

May 25th New Moon in Gemini brings a tough time for love and finances because it brings obsession, dangerous power plays, and dead-end relationships that burn hot and heavy, but end up in dying embers.
The Spring Equinox Leads us to New Beginnings – Flowers, Pets, and Spring.
THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
Relaxing may be difficult this month, but only for fabulous reasons. Your personal appearance makes you the hot commodity. If you have a partner, you may be getting ready to tie the knot, so be prepared to have that conversation. Your finances have strengthened and you can charm anyone to sell you just about anything at your price.
You are the star of the show and at the top of everyone’s guest list. A full night’s sleep may be hard to come by, but you love it. Just make yourself a fresh cup of coffee and move on to your next social engagement. A new job, bonus, or financial luck comes to you at month’s end.
You have been busy, busy, busy for several months now, but that’s about to change. May brings some R & R time. A friend or co-worker could begin to appeal to you on a deeper level. You’re not in the mood to do much socializing, but even take-out can get expensive. Time to get back to cooking?
May brings a slow down for you, Cancer. Time to stop the running out, curl up and relish in your home pleasures. Your emotions will be running high and you may choose to step back a bit before you say something you’ll regret. Everything you’ve been waiting for career-wise is about to happen at month’s end, but a few details still need to be attended to. Sit tight just a bit longer.
A tug of war between your duties at home and your career will have you at your wits end this month, Leo. You’re building a name for yourself, and as you know, that takes love, time and devotion. Your mission is to find a way to get the message across to everyone who’s complaining about not getting to see you. If they don’t listen to reason, just do what you have to do.
You are feeling an urge to close the gap between you and someone you adore. A surprise trip may be in order, or you can send them a ticket to come to you. You deal with authority figures mid-month. You’re out to make your name and skills known. However, don’t expect it to happen without a challenge.
If there’s something you’ve always wanted to try that is a little bit risky, you may want to try it this month, Libra. Bungee jumping? Really? It’s possible to meet up with friends who moved far away. Is there an old lover who still isn’t over you? Don’t tease if you don’t really mean it.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
May brings the strength for you to keep a steady course, Scorpio. If problems come up, you’ll know who to see, what to ask for, and what to expect. Also, your financial senses are especially keen right now. Be careful, as arguments could come up regarding financial agreements.
May brings inspiration to flirt a little and catch up with some old time friendships. It’s time to get out there and mingle. Yes, that raise or promotion you’ve been waiting for is likely just around the corner. You’re ready for more responsibility. A secret romance or other matter comes out into the open at the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 10th. If you’re not ready for public exposure, slow it down. June puts travel and education on the agenda.
If you’ve partnered with someone at work, and it’s not a good fit, don’t pretend that all is well. Mention it to your co-worker, and perhaps you can work everything out. Lots of luck arrives mid-month, Cap. The Universe has your back with any calculated risks you may need to take. Any attempt for you to show your skills will be much appreciated.
This month you’ll continue the socializing but with some pretty darn fascinating, new acquaintances. Have fun, but don’t forget the tried and true ones who always have your back. You may want to become involved with someone who is quite independent who you hardly know. Sound Fabulous? Be careful, this may be a someone who you’ll want to keep around. Watch your money and plastic and resist any form of binge spending.
It seems as if everyone has been able to put their disputes and disagreements aside for this month Pisces. Folks will actually be able to agree on something. Be careful not to overdue the shopping mid-month, Pisces. Set yourself a limit or take a friend with you to the mall. Perhaps they will talk some sense into you. A friend may hit rock bottom and need your help at month’s end.
