I release the past and look forward to new beginnings.
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, 9/27/96)
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. 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 (Retreat) and Animal (Turkey) September brings a sudden move, upsetting conditions at home and the workplace, ups and downs with the Stock Market, disrupted or delayed vacation plans, along with increased fuel prices. Watch interest rates increase, the Stock Market reel, while real estate has difficulties and the workplace freezes salaries and bonuses.

ANIMAL: THE TURKEY
Turkey is actually thought to be the Give-Away Eagle or South Eagle of many native people. The philosophy of give-away was practiced in many tribes. Simply stated, it is the deep and abiding recognition of the sacrifices of both self and others. People in modern-day society, who have many times more than they need, should study the noble turkey who sacrifices itself so that we may live. In turkey’s death, we have our life. In December 2002 we honor the Turkey.
Spectators unfamiliar with the cultural phenomenon of the pot latch or give-away ceremony are often mystified by it. A tribal member may gladly give away all he or she owns, and do without in order to help the People. In present day urban life, we are taught to acquire and get ahead. The person with the most toys wins the game. In some cultures, no one can win the game unless the whole of the People’s needs are met. A person who claims more than his or her share is looked upon as selfish, or crazy, or both. The poor, the aged, and the feeble have honor. The person who gives away the most and carries the burdens of the People is one of the most respected.
Turkey was the medicine of many saints and mystics. Celebrate if you have Turkey medicine. Your virtues are many. You have transcended self. You act and react on behalf of others. You aspire to help those who need your help. This is not out of some sense of self-righteous morality or religious guilt. Help and sustenance is given by Turkey out of the realization that all life is sacred. It is knowing that the Great Spirit resides within all people. It is an acknowledgment that what you do for others you do for yourself. Turkey medicine rests in true ego, in enlightenment. Doing unto others and feeding the people is the message of all true spiritual systems.
September 2010 brings each and every one of us a true gift. This gift can be spiritual, material or intellectual, it can be great or small, but it is never insignificant. Congratulations! You may have just won the lottery. The gift may be a beautiful sunset, or the smell of a fragrant flower. On the other hand you may begin to feel the spirit of giving growing within you, and wanting to share that with others

RUNE of the Month Othila RETREAT —Separation-Inheritance
Othila represents real property, acquisition and benefits. It seems strange to say, but the benefits you receive, the inheritance may be derived from something you must give up. This can be particularly difficult when that which you are called upon to give up or abandon is part of your background and your cultural inheritance. For then you must look closely at what, until now, you have proudly claimed as your birthright. Whether it is your attachment to your position in society, to the work you do or even the beliefs about your own nature, the separation called for now will free you to become more truly who you are.
Othila is the Rune of the separating of paths. Old skins must be shed, outmoded relationships discarded. This Rune has appeared in Virgo energies for September 2010- the month when we have Mercury retrograde until the 15th. This is the Rune of radical service!
The proper action here is submission, and, quite probably, retreat. Retreat in the sense of reserve in your conduct; for knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing that anyone can learn. Know when to retreat and have the firmness of character to carry it out.
Take pains not to be mechanical or unaware of what is happening around you. This is not a time to be bound by old conditions and old authority. When going through changes, release and letting go, ask yourself what feels right for you and act according to the Light and inner direction you possess now in your life. Because you may be called upon to undertake a radical departure from old ways, total honesty is required. Otherwise, through negligence or refusal to see clearly, you may cause pain to others as well as damage to yourself.
Not rigidity but flow is the proper attitude at this time. And yet you must wait for the universe to act. Othila – September’s Rune – reminds us that we do without doing, and everything gets done.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance

STARGAZING FOR SEPTEMBER 2010
Discover the secrets of your Astrological Sun Sign, Moon Sign and Rising Sign and read them all together, for monthly guidance and direction.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 8th brings Venus moving from Libra, an easygoing place, into Scorpio, a more difficult aspect. Scorpio is a very intense sign and releases a passionate, crisis oriented energy that does not match Venus’s loving nature. With this aspect, lasting though January 2011, it is much easier to be jealous and much harder to be nice. However, it wil be good times again for you late Pisces, when Jupiter returns to your sign through the end of the year.
The Full Moon in Aries on September 23rd brings a balance of energies. Time to schedule your annual health check-up. It’s time for cooperation and diplomacy in completing matters and bringing your life into a new life-style and balance. The areas mot affected are personal, business, and legal relationships.

The Personal Signs
Aries (3/21 – 4/20)
The Full Moon in Aries over the Fall Equinox, Sept. 22-23, triggers what may be the final chapter in the summer events involving you, those close to you, and your career. Job and relationship changes are possible, and this lunar energy provides incentive and initiative to pursue new personal and professional goals. A few long-term relationships may end now, by choice or circumstances. When this happens to us it is usually because they have fulfilled the role they played in our life.
The hotspot energy over the summer months continues, but begins to wane. Now you have a lucky charm on your shoulder. Friends and networking contacts are your road to good fortune. One of them may be a connection to a terrific opportunity. Focus on the future and refuse to be discouraged if someone tries to derail you.
Although the events over the summer months begin to wane, they go one more round early September and on the Fall Equinox and Full Moon on the 23rd. Although you may not completely resolve these issues, you can succeed in putting them behind you. Continue to be wary of mixing friendships with money, and be cautious about investments. Any risky moves can bring sizeable losses.
You can expect tension in family relationships throughout September. A stressful career or home-relates event could be an issue-as well as notice of a job relocation. Find an outlet for your frustrations and try to curb your impatience. Listen and open your mind to compromise.
Although the summer stress in waning, you still have some related issues to deal with in early September. There could be travel concerned with legal matters, as well as your return to school. You might delve into your past and begin tracing your genealogy.
The summer’s planetary emphasis begins to lessen but may flair up again of the Fall equinox and Full Moon on the 23rd. Take this as a fresh start that comes with incentive and initiative and take charge of money matters. Develop a plan, put it in writing, and stick to it.
Scorpio (10/ 23-11/22)
Although it may be tough to deal with this summer’s difficult planetary alignments, you’re in the home stretch. This energy peaks at the Fall Equinox and Aries Full Moon. Continue to be cautious about what you say, use your sixth sense to get the edge on competition, and try not to get drawn into power plays. Also, be very careful on the roads.
Although the summer’s planetary issues have begun to wane, at the Fall Equinox on the 22nd and Full Moon on the 23rd, be cautious with money matters, especially those that involve children, friends, and groups. Time to give serious thought to what you value and what’s most important in your life. On a practical level, it’s time to throw out the junk and have a garage sale. In the process you could find a valuable collectible.
