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 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.

Lizard...will you dream with me?
Travel across the stars?
Beyond the place of time and space,
There live visions from afar
Lizard sat lolling in the shadow of a big rock, shading himself from the desert sun. Snake crawled by, looking for some shadow to coil up in and rest. Snake watched Lizard for awhile as Lizard's eyeballs went from side to side behind his enormous closed lids. Snake hissed to get Lizard's attention. Slowly Lizard's dreaming eyes opened and he saw Snake.
Snake! You scared me! What do you want?" Lizard cried.
Snake spit his answer from his forked tongue. "Lizard you are always getting the best shadow spots in the heat of the day. This is the only big rock for miles. Why don't you share your shade with me?"
Lizard thought for a moment, then agreed. "Snake, you can share my shade spot, but you have to go to the other side of the rock and you must promise not to interrupt me."
Snake was getting annoyed. He hissed, "How could I bother you Lizard? All you are doing is sleeping."
Lizard smiled knowingly. "Oh Snake, you are such a silly serpent. I'm not sleeping. I'm dreaming."
Snake wanted to know what the difference was, so Lizard explained. "Dreaming is going into the future, Snake. I go where the future lives. You see, that is why I know you won't eat me today. I dreamed you and I know you are full of mouse."
Snake was taken aback. "Why Lizard, you are exactly right. I wondered why you said you would share your rock."
Lizard laughed to himself. "Snake," he said, "you are looking for shade and I am looking for shadow. Shadow is where the dreams live."
Lizard medicine is the shadow side of reality where your dreams are reviewed before you decide to manifest them physically. Lizard could have created getting eaten by Snake if he had so desired.
Lizard is the medicine of dreamers. Whether dreamers smoke you or dream you, dreamers can always help you to see the shadow. This shadow can be your fears, your hopes, or the very thing you are resisting, but it is always following you around like an obedient dog. May 2019, is a time to look and see what is following along behind you. Is it your fears, your future trying to catch up to you, or is it the part of you that wants to ignore your weakness and humanness?
Lizard is suggesting that you pay attention to your dreams and their symbols. Make a dream log and record all that you remember. Be sure to pay attention to each individual symbol or recurring pattern. If you do not remember your dreams, you could try setting a music alarm for 2:00 or 3:00 am. Or you could try to drink a lot of water at bedtime and allow your bladder to wake you up. Dreams are very important and we need to learn to pay attention to them.
You may not have a dream for your future at this time. Remember that imagination is the door to all new ideas and creations. As you examine the dreaming process, you will find that the subconscious is processing all of the recorded messages it holds concerning the event you experience throughout the day. These messages can be suppressed feelings that brings about inner conflict, or they can be new ideas or goals, other dimensions of awareness, future events, warning signals, or desires and hopes.
In one sense, Lizard is insisting that you look into your imagination for new experience. This is necessary when life becomes dull or full of boredom. On the other hand, Lizard medicine may also apply to those of us who dream too much, refusing to use our dreams as tools to manifest that same vision in their lives.
All levels of awareness are accessible through dreams. Remember, life is not always what is seems. Are you the dreamer or are you the dreamed?

RUNE OF THE MONTH
PROTECTION — Algiz
Sedge or Rushes, An Elk
Algiz is the Rune given to warn us to control our emotions. During this transit and transition in the next few months, the shifts in your life course are accelerated self change. It is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions, the highs as well as the lows. May 2019 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.
Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

THE PERSONAL SIGNS
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
Instead of making some regrettable mistakes as May opens, do what’s so very difficult for you. Sit down, take a deep breath and jus BE. For the first week in May resist the power struggles. Just when you think the Universe has thrown you a curve ball, you find that the unexpected challenges turn out to be blessings. Remember, not everything comes to fruition within five minutes after you begin—relax and veg. Give the new project a chance Aries.
In May your energy returns and you turn your attention to rebuilding your self-confidence. Your mood softens and you realize that it’s easy to project onto others the discomfort you have been feeling toward yourself. You make tremendous strides in finding the solution to what you have been pondering over the last two months. Soon everything will be running smoothly again, and you can feel a deep satisfaction of accomplishment.
May carries its share of irritations and adjustments. Take it all in stride because any delays are actually opportunities to fine-tune the direction your life is going in. New people cross your path, including one who will have a significant impact on your life in the future. You may not be aware of it, but you are planting seeds for your future. It’s time to let go of the past, no matter how used to it you’ve become. Month’s end brings you great rewards.
May brings a time of inner turmoil. Half of you wants to rush around and get things accomplished, and the other half wants to kick back and watch the clouds roll by. You will need to find a happy medium. With career, no rocking the boat, no pushing the envelope and no taking big risks. This would bring you an internal insecurity that can undermine all you’ve done. Get out and meet new people because you could find a few you’ll connect with. Don’t waste too much time second guessing yourself.
May brings you freedom from the burden of uncertainty and insecurity that has been with you from the closing of last year. You are ready to look at the future head on. You realize that not only do you need a new beginning, you desire it. Be very careful when making promises to anyone. You have a tendency to make a promise without realizing the level of commitment being asked of you. This can allow for resentment and anger. You hate to break a promise. New opportunities come along and, of course you are interested. Just make sure its not something down the path you’ve vowed to leave behind.
May brings you a feeling of steady ground. For the first time in seven years, gone is any apprehension lurking just under the surface. In its place is a wellspring of confidence. You have mastered the ups and downs of all you’ve had to face. The order and regularity is something that nourishes you. It also restores trust in others that has been lacking for awhile. Your key word is satisfaction, enabling you to truly accomplish and get a lot done.
Although you are not normally rude, you will need to cope with whatever comes into your head in May, Libra. Every once in a while the pressure to say whatever you think can build to a point that the dam bursts. As you struggle with this, it’s time to recognize what the real issue is. Do the choices you make require another person’s permission? And is the reverse true as well? Being close to someone does not give you the right to weigh in on everything they do. Perhaps the reality of your relationships doesn’t match your wishful thinking. Time to raise your consciousness?
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
May is about to show you how many different ways you can be irritated. It’s not people talking endlessly or you not getting anywhere; the turmoil is about the constantly changing plans. Usually you’re the one who can see through the upsets and find a solution. However, this time you choose to bow out and not become involved. It’s either that or pull your hair out! The opportunity to meet new people at month’s end lifts your spirits and gives you something delicious to get excited about.
May is a little more than uncomfortable for you, Sag. No matter what unfolds, it’s going to leave you scratching your head in disbelief. Normally, you can rise to the occasion and handle whatever comes up. Prepare to be tested. Not because there are no solutions, but because you sense that the people around you have lost their minds. You feel that there’s a lot going on inside you that you can't quite gat a handle on. Yes, there are emotional issues trying to surface so you can release them and move on.
May brings you back to your happy place, Cap. You decided it was high time you put what’s going on in your life through a stringent litmus test. How much does it all really matter? What’s the result? A list of priorities that relieves your stress considerably.
May shows you that it’s not that you’re unhappy or discontent, but just plain tired. You’re looking for a hole you can crawl into. Anywhere to rest and recalibrate, and avoid any hint of change. Everything seems to be getting on your nerves. Normally it’s just the little things, but this month it seems to be everything. You feel out of sorts, out of energy, and your usual tolerance has packed up and left town. Take a break, and don’t talk to anyone, including yourself.
May brings a time when you are not willing to negotiate with anyone. It’s time for you to stick to your desires, your wants, and your needs. If anyone even dares to suggest that you are being selfish, ignore them. You could never persuade them they’re wrong or just how you want to live your life. What they are doing is trying to control you. Walk away, Pisces. Timing is good for you to put your career plans in motion. Don’t dismiss your creative impulses with ideas from others. It’s time to honor yourself.
