Discourses and musings from a second Saturn return

Pesky Computers

How did I live without a computer?  I’m starting to remember as my home pc just crashed and not sure any of it can be salvaged…………sigh.

Brings up feelings of frustration and asks me to slow it down a little.  Have to slow it down a lot without a computer.  No more instant messaging in the comfort of home in jamies or working hours on a new astrology report.

Good old Mercury retrograde, a classic example of what happens during these times, crashing computers, operations gone poorly or recovery time lengthened, miscommunications abound and things that you counted on to be there are suddenly gone.

Happy Solstice

Many cultures celebrate various combinations of the winter and summer solstices, the equinoxes, and the midpoints between them, leading to various holidays arising around these events. For the winter solstice, Christmas is the most popular holiday to have arisen. In addition, Yalda, Saturnalia, Karachun, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Yule (see winter solstice for more) are also celebrated around this time. For the summer solstice, Christian Catholic cultures and Nordic Christian Protestant cultures celebrate the feast of St. John from June 23 to June 24 (see St. John’s Eve, Ivan Kupala Day, Midsummer), while the Wiccan culture observes Litha. For the vernal (spring) equinox, several spring-time festivals are celebrated, such as the observance in Judaism of Passover. The autumnal equinox has also given rise to various holidays, such as the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. At the midpoints between these four solar events, cross-quarter days are celebrated.

In most cultures the solstices and equinoxes also determine the midpoint of the seasons, which can be seen in the celebrations called midsummer and midwinter. Along this vein, the Japanese celebrate the start of each season with an occurrence known as Setsubun.

In Hinduism, the solstices are termed as Uttarayana and Dakshinayana. The former occurs around January 14th of each year, while the latter occurs around June 21st each year. According to the Vedic Calendar, Uttarayana is termed as auspicious while Dakshinayana is inauspicious for deaths and births, while for festivals the reverse stands true. The offerings to ancestors and the dead occurs in Dakshinayana.

One of most controversial winter solstices is the December 21, 2012, which marks the end of a baktun of the ancient Maya calendar.

A Prayer

May today be all that you need it to be.

May the peace of God

and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in

your dreams tonight and conquer all your fears.

May God manifest

himself today in ways that you have never experienced.

May your joys

be fulfilled, your dreams be closer and your prayers be answered.

I pray that faith enters a new height for you,

I pray that your territory is enlarged and I pray that you step into your destiny

within the ministry.

I pray for peace, wealth, happiness and true and undying love for God.

Good or Bad

What is a bad thing anyway? A bad thing is something that is different than what I want. Who gets to decide what the bad thing is? Jerry and Esther watched the mother bird lay her eggs in the nest, and then the neighbor’s cat ate the baby bird. Esther said “bad cat!” And the cat said, “good bird!”

You are loved-All is well

It really is all about perspective.  I have a friend living in paradise and she is depressed.  Most of us live lives of great abundance and only complain about our bills.  I could go on.

Today my practice is seeing the good, I know how to see the bad only too well!

Summer Mornings

I don’t remember a summer where every morning was so perfect.  Maybe I’m paying more attention.

I’m more in the moment.  It reminds me of when I was a child and an hour was eternity.  How nice is that?  Eternity, living in it!

I’m not filled with yearning for something else at this time in my life.  I’m letting many things go; people, places, papers, clothes, ideologies, old patterns, ad infinitum.

I am content right now and it is one of the best places I know.

Mercury Retrograde June 15

Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow, as it does about 3 times + a year, we will have the opportunity of re-examining what we are doing with our lives from what are we storing in our closets, to finishing that book, to healing old relationships and much more.

For me, this Mercury in Cancer will be in my 6th House moving into the 7th towards the end.  My focus will be work and service along with partnerships.  Also, because it is in Cancer my home will come under scrutiny and I will probably be emotionally charged in my communications with loved ones.

Forewarned is forearmed so I will be able to utilize this time for healing and nurturing all of my communications with family and friends.

What will this month bring to you?  How best to utilize these energies so that you don’t have to experience the negative aspects of breakdowns in communication, cars, computers, business deals, delays, flight plan changes and more.

I will look at your chart and see where this is going to occur to help you navigate through what can be an amazing month of taking stock, perhaps even changing course.

I need your birth data:  Time, Place, Date

The What If’s

The what if’s are hounding me this morning.  What if…………..I’m missing the boat?  What if I am not right?  What if my life is a lie?  What if my dreams don’t come true?  What if this is it?  What if my life peaked out years ago?  Do I get another peak?

All of the words I would use to soothe a friend escape me for myself.  This morning’s questionings are the ongoing search for meaning at this time in my life.  It’s been a search for some time and I wonder if I missed something.

As I move from one level of awareness to the next it feels like starting all over again.  Somedays I get it and some days I just don’t.

Savor and Sort

I am having time to look back over my life.  Work is slower in the summer and so am I.  Now that Mercury is going retrograde till mid-July there is time to savor and sort.  As I clean out old patterns of thinking I see how addicted I have been to my point of view as being correct.  I have been busily accumulating information for so many years, so that I would know the answers to people’s questions.

Sorting out, what to keep, what to let go of?

Savoring pleasant memories….very dreamy stuff.

In this space of looking out and back, I am enjoying the peaceful respite, gathering energy for the next surge in my life.  Looks like Autumn will be busy.

End Days

I don’t know if we are in the ending of time, lots of books being published on that and I think have been probably even before the Bible’s Revelations. That great fear that we have been so bad we will be punished and destroyed.

Phew! What a sticky, fear-based thought that is. Those types of thoughts get me when I’m in a negative space-out of time-out of tune-out of step, you name it.

My world has been rocked to its core over the past ten years, taking me down to a more common denominator, myself. As I slowly heal and center into my space of reality I see with clarity the truth of the moment. All else is pure conjecture……mental stroking for the ego.

As I hold that reality, the moments of clarity and beauty fill my mind and heal my world.

Focus

“When you focus on the problem, you stay in the problem. When you focus on a solution, you move
forward toward something that is more in alignment with your passion and joy.
Seek a solution of what is your passion~”

June-Astro-bytes

June is packed full of interesting energies and Mercury goes retrograde is one of them! The Summer Solstice is on June 21st and June 25th marks the 3rd and final time Neptune will be opposing Saturn-phew! Glad to see that one go!

See how this month will be affecting you, there is a lot of momentum to help us trust our intuitions and walk the talk of our Divine origins.

Expect to get very clear signals about the future you’re supposed to be pursuing this month, with interesting, unique, and specialized circumstances making for unexpected but great results throughout the month.

Things will be a little strange for Aries, Taurus, Libra, and Scorpio the first few days.

The whole month will have major harmony between Aries and Scorpio relative to areas ruled by Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces, with some very unique insights and circumstances connected to Taurus, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius late in the month.

Mercury, the planet of agreements, communication, and contracts, is going retrograde from June 15 to July 9.

Mercury in this mode is known to bring delays and confusion and you will begin to feel the static in the air as soon as June 6, well before it actually retrogrades on June 15.

Mercury exerts its most difficult wayward energy on the front and end days of its retrograde period. It’s never wise to act on days that fall too close to the start of a Mercury retrograde period, or end point. As you see, the very worst time to act would be

June 9 – 14 or later, on July 9 – 15. Remember: Resume normal activity, such as verbally announcing plans and signing contracts, on July 16 next month, if you can’t wrap things up by June 6.

Deals signed while Mercury is in retrograde are often plagued with problems. If you do decide to brave your luck, chances are, you’ll have to renegotiate the whole deal again later, after it’s over and up for renewal. That is, assuming you’d ever want to continue working with whomever you signed the deal with in the first place – and that’s doubtful! I tried to test my luck when I was new to astrology, and in 100% of the cases, things did not work out. If you are skeptical (like I was) go ahead and test your luck – I am trying to save you heartache!

Tithing

Tithing, I’ve heard about it all my life. We were supposed to tithe at our church but my folks said they didn’t have enough to do that and would give what they could.

From early on I was taught that there wasn’t enough money for many things.

That is a firmly held belief system I have noticed in many people.

I’m working on that and have decided to tithe weekly in complete faith and trust that there really is more than enough. I’m tithing to whoever has been my spiritual guide in thanks and gratitude.

I love rooting out these little buried belief systems that run quietly unobserved and rule our lives.

Since I have decided to tithe starting this week, of course many financial obligations have come up to show me that I don’t have enough to do it this week. That’s what happened last week too…………..and I succumbed.

This week, I’m smarter and see that it is a test and I am walking through the door to prosperity, on whatever level God sees I need.

Fruits of the Spirit

“Keep it [your soul] then in patience, in love, in gentleness, in kindness . . . For these are indeed the fruits of the spirit . . . And remember, a kindness sometimes consists in denying as well as granting those activities in associations with thy fellow man.”                                                         Edgar Cayce Reading 5322-1

It can be difficult for me to know when to say no, has been that way all of my life.  What is service for the highest good?  What is the highest good?  I’m struggling with that lately as I begin to piece together the remainder of my life.  Can there be a highest good for all concerned?  And maybe the highest good isn’t what we will benefit from the most, maybe if it’s not so pretty we’ll get more out of it.  Semantics.  That’s the space I’m in this morning as I ponder on fruits of the spirit.

The Lesson of the Trees

I was losing myself in the earthy energy of these old oaks, and then, all trees.  Wanting to merge and realize their magic in a deeper way.

Trees are so amazingly beautiful – the seen and the unseen.

As above, so below.

Looking alike above ground and below ground.

As our existence is – as above, so below……whatever is out there, a reflection of what is in here.

Trees connect me to the paradox of life.

Lighten Your Load

What we have been taught to believe as true, is not necessarily so. Those teachings and beliefs are being challenged by these rapidly changing times.

Unlike a small child who is eager to learn and has a void to be filled with knowledge, you are already full of information. You will have to decide for yourself what to discard, what to replace, and what to accept.”
