Kindred Spirits keep me emotionally grounded!
It’s time to dress and get ready for fall.
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 Change of Seasons reminds us of Spirit
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 and 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 Sun has entered VIRGO
Virgo, symbolized by the Corn Maiden, accentuates the path of personal service and purity. It represents work and service to mankind of the highest order. Through dedication to physical fitness and holistic healing, your body can become a sacred temple for the spirit within, allowing it to emerge into your everyday life. Don’t expect miracles overnight, and most Virgo’s don’t as they are quite practical. Be gentle with yourself as you eliminate those nasty habits of doubt, criticism and worry. Reawaken the wonder of learning and the satisfaction of simple joys, but turn away from the fanaticism that fosters a workaholic temperment or leads you into a hermit-like existence. Efficiency and industriousness are your twin assets, leading to complete success at this time, the harvest cycle of the year.
Virgos usually receive the Zodiac’s backlash. They are detailed, organized, methodical, chaste and very insecure. Very critical of themselves, they seem to expect the same from others, which can cause resentment and jealousy. However, they do make up for this with their charm, as they are of the most unassuming variety. Virgo’s approach is usually subtle, surprisingly tender, their standards are high, but they ultimately can accept differences and flaws once they get to know and trust you. With a Virgo, trust is never given, it has to be earned.
Based on the Rune (Partnership) and Animal (Skunk), September 2014 brings a time of

ANIMAL: SKUNK — Reputation
SKUNK Tell me the story So I will know it well, Of how to attract, And how to repel.
Skunk medicine! Go ahead and laugh. This fury little animal has a reputation that contains a great deal of power. Due to its distinctive behavior, humans give this tiny, smelly creature a wide berth. The keyword here is respect.
Unlike other predatory animals, Skunk does not threaten your life but threatens your senses. You know this to be true if you have ever been in the vicinity of its spray. In observing the habit patterns of skunk, it is easy to notice the playfulness and nonchalance of its natural behavior. The “I dare you” attitude of this four-legged creature commands you, as the observer, to respect its space and mere reputation alone.
Skunk is teaching you that by walking your walk and talking your talk, with respect for yourself, you will create a position of strength and honored reputation. The carriage of your body relates to others of what you think about yourself. There is no need to bully, aggravate, torment, or overpower other people or things when your sense of “self” is intact. As with Skunk, the resonate field of energy around your body is relayed through the senses. Self-esteem permeates the body’s energy, and is instantly recognized on an extrasensory level by others.
Learn to assert, without ego, who you are. Respect will follow. Your self-respect attitude will repel those who are not of like mind, and yet attract those who choose the same pathway. As the odor of the skunk attracts others of its kind, it repels anyone who will not respect its space.
Skunk medicine people have the ability to attract others, and they are very charismatic. At the same time, the other side of their natural power is to repel those who seek to take energy from them without recycling the gifts they have taken.
Skunk medicine people also know how to use the energy flow to attract a lover. Some people call this sexual magic, as it is akin to the musk scent that animals excrete to attract a mate. It can be dangerous to leak sexual energy if you are not looking for a mate. It puts you into a games position that may feed your ego but not reflect how others feel about you. If you are attracting others who have an interest in you, then you are in fact saying, “I am available.” This will only cause hard feelings when the “truth” comes out. It also leaks energy that you could have used in a more constructive way.
When using Skunk medicine, it is best to learn how to handle energy flows. Modern psychologists call this “body language.” In tribal teachings, this is your personal medicine which you are revealing to others. Use your medicine well, and know that you are known by your reputation. How you use your energy will attract either honor or disgrace. You may want to examine what energy you are putting out that has created your present situation.
In September, 2014, you are being asked to notice the kinds of people who are attracted to you. If they emulate favorable characteristics, have enough self-esteem to recognize those characteristics within yourself. Walk tall and be proud of the accomplishments you have made. Bear in mind that what you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection. Project your self-respect!

If a group financial venture is offered to you now, you owe it to yourself to investigate.
September brings a full social calendar, and if you can’t keep up with offers and invitations, it may be time to set priorities.
