People inspire me.
We give you a vision now of your brethren, kneeling around the altar in the temple of the Eight Pointed Star. With the body in the lotus position, they are worshiping the ever-glowing light of the jewel of the White Lotus Blossom. This White Lotus glows in the glory of every heart. The jewel within this lotus - the glow of the Ruby - is pure and still. As you meditate on this you will learn real wisdom. You will learn to go directly to this jewel hidden deep within you, and here, in a timeless flash, you will comprehend the truth. Not with your mind, but with your heart.
(E. Joyce-Giza, 9/27/97)
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered VIRGO
The earth sign of 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 beginning of the harvest cycle of the year.at by giving to others you give to and improve yourself, you will always be on the right track.
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.

ANIMAL: THE MOOSE - SELF ESTEEM
Help me to honor
The gifts I can give,
And recognize my worthiness
As long as I live.
Moose is found in the North of the medicine wheel, as is the Buffalo. North represents the place of wisdom. Self-esteem is the medicine of Moose because it represents the power of recognizing that wisdom has been used in a situation and that recognition or a pat on the back is deserved.
Moose is the largest member of the deer family and has great strength. The call of the male moose is an awesome thing to hear on a musky spring night. His pride in his maleness and his desire to share his seed with a Moose cow are displays of his sense of self-esteem. The bellow of a male Moose can be viewed as a positive force, since it represents his willingness to tell the world about his feelings.
This tell the world trait contains a joyfulness which only comes with a sense of accomplishment. there is no greater joy than a job well done. This trait is therefore not a seeking of approval, but rather an enjoyment of sharing because of the spontaneous explosion of joy that comes from the deepest part of one's being.
The wisdom woven throughout this scene is that creation constantly brings forth new ideas and further creation. Moose is telling us that joy should be shouted with pride. The wisdom in doing this shouting is that JOY is catching. In a sense, the bellowing is a way for us all to lighten up and give ourselves or each other a well done.
Moose medicine people have the wisdom to know when to use the gentleness of the Deer and when to activate the stamped of the Buffalo. They understand the balance of giving orders to get things done and having the willingness to do things for themselves. The wisdom of Moose medicine is akin to the Grandfather Warrior who has long since put away his war paint and is now advising the young bucks to cool their blood.
Moose medicine is often found in elders who have walked the good earth and have seen many things on their Earth Walk. Their joy lies in being the teachers of children, and in being the first ones to give encouragement. This is not to say that Moose medicine people do not use their wisdom to warn as well as to give praise, because they do. Moose medicine people know what to say, when to say it, and to whom!
The elders are honored in tribala law for their gifts of wisdom, for their teaching abilities, and for the calmness they impart in Council. If you are wise beyond your years and have the gift of Moose medicine, use this gift to encourage others to grow. There are may facets to the wisdom of Moose medicine.
September, 2017, brings Moose into the vibration for the close of this era and the new beginnings of the opening era, beginning on the Fall Equinox, to remind us about strength and endurance in the coming months. If you have reason to feel you've accomplished something on your life journey then be sure to jump for joy. This may be a habit you have broken, a completion of some sort, an insight on a goal, or a new sense of self that you have fought hard to earn. This is a time for feeling harmonious pride, and of recognizing those who have aided you in this process.

RUNE of the Month - ODIN — The Unknowable
Blank is the end, blank is the beginning. This is the Rune of total trust and should be taken as exciting evidence of your most immediate contact with your own true destiny which, time and again, rises like the phoenix from the ashes we call fate.
Odin can portend a death. But a death is usually symbolic, and may relate to any part of your life as you are living it now. Relinquishing control is the ultimate challenge for the Spiritual Warrior.
Here the Unknowable informs you that it is in motion in your life. In that blankness is held your undiluted potential! At the same time pregnant and empty, it comprehends the totality of being, all that is to be actualized.
With the Blank Rune appearing in September of 2017, the energies will bring to the surface our deepest fears as the problems and results of the lies and cover ups coming out of the White House. Will I fail? Will I be abandoned? Will it all be taken away? Will I make it through this upsetting time? Yet, within that blankness, within the center of our fears, is our highest good, our truest possibilities and all of our fertile dreams.
Willingness and permitting are what this Rune requires, for how can you exercise control over what is yet not in form? Whatever is coming can never arise from the known! Once again, this Rune often calls for no less than an act of courage to be willing to jump into the void of the unknown. September 2017, will surely be lived as an act of faith for many, as the Cosmos wield their dark power to unveil whatever has been hidden.
If Karma represents the full total of your soul vibration and lives thus far, everything you have ever done, the limits on what you are and will become, then it may be useful to see this Rune as the path of karma. Yet, from the spiritual perspective, even the very depths of old karma shift and evolve as you shift and evolve. Nothing is predestined! There is nothing that cannot be avoided. If, indeed, there are matters and secrets hidden by the powers that be, you need only remember, what beckons to you is always the creative powers of the unseen and unknown.
Whenever this Rune appears, take heart. It is the source from which flows the energies for self-change. Know that the work of self-transformation is progressing within the world and within you.
Don't be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

Playmates and romance is on your mind as September opens. You may not have much free time, but you won’t mind a bit. Socializing and curling up with your sweetie at home are on fire. As you look at finances, you figure out how to lessen the load of your responsibilities. The energy of Venus and Uranus bring surprises for you throughout the month.
The problem you worked on last month continues through mid-September. You may have to put your foot down firmly. If you’ve been holding off on telling someone you just adore them, there’s no time like the present. Your lover may just beat you to the punch. Live it up now because you’ll be busy very shortly. If you want to change a hobby into full time work, get out and shake some hands.

Time for a get away Virgo. It’s been an intense and serious summer. Spend time with one you love and family as it’s been far too long.

You could find an extremely surprising emotional revelation now. Just don’t fall prey to any sob stories.
As September opens, your attention is called to something that needs to be fixed. It could be a relationship that needs repair, and only you can begin the process. You may be too busy with work or group projects to attend to those nearest and dearest, but that will soon change. Your partner will be loving and supportive, nonetheless. After the Fall Equinox there could be an urgent financial matter brought by a loved one. Make sure you get all the facts before you did into your rainy day fund.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
