AUGUST 25 thru AUGUST 31

This week ‘it’s a wrap’ on the Month of August and yet in the continuous circle of life we begin an auspicious and important period with a New Moon in Virgo on Monday. Just as Virgo has the mental and physical ability to integrate a myriad of details and pieces of information, we are encouraged during this cycle to integrate heart, mind, body and soul. The messages this week may seem conflicting on the surface but tie together quite nicely when we take a deeper look.

While patience is a virtue and there are days we need to lighten up on our adherence to our schedules and agendas, we are also asked to pull our heads out of the clouds and make some choices and decisions. Likewise we need to respect the source of Virgo power and strength – privacy and spending quality alone time to gather our thoughts and do our inner work.

This week we are likely to recognize both endings and beginnings. For some beginnings it may be necessary to first finish what we have started. Life doesn’t give an ‘incomplete’ grade on required courses, or does it? Virgo attention to detail and perseverance can help us figure out what remains to be done so we can complete what’s necessary.

Venus is a busy planet this week, making three important connections, one each, on the first three days of the week. Although emotionally these can be tough, it’s a great way to move into the new lunar cycle – getting clear on what we want and why. Relationships are a focus as is our relationship with money. We’ll take a deeper look at what we value and very possibly make some necessary adjustments and revisions.

Although we start the week with a sharp and steady focus with the New Moon in Virgo, as we near the weekend, things start to get more emotional and a bit fuzzy. An opposition between the Sun and Neptune get the dizzying ball rolling on Friday. As the Moon dives deep into transformation-seeking Scorpio over the weekend we have the opportunity to spend some ‘quality’ time with our hearts and very possibly in the deepest recesses of our souls.

Everything considered, it should be a great week with plenty of opportunities to re-evaluate our course and one or two kicks to jolt us out of complacency or stagnation. The New Moon in Virgo launches a powerful and productive cycle with a little something for everyone.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

This week on 12Radio - Tuesday on Simpletales we are keeping with our Virgo theme of ‘Back to School’. Bruce Rawles, teacher, lecturer, author and artist joins me to talk about one of his passions – Sacred Geometry. Get your pens and notebooks ready – you won’t want to miss this one.

MONDAY
AUGUST 25
NEW MOON IN VIRGO

Moon enters Virgo 2:33 am (PDT)
New Moon 2 Virgo 7:13 am (PDT)

The week begins on an auspicious note with a New Moon and multiple planetary alignments. This new Moon is energized by an innovative alignment between Venus and Uranus, a potent coming together of might and discipline when Mars collides with Saturn and a productive threesome liaison between Mercury with both Mars and Saturn.

The New Moon in discriminating Virgo has an important message for us, not only for this 29-day lunar cycle, but for the next 9 months or so. When we spend our time doing what tickles our hearts (has true meaning for us) and apply our best efforts to structuring our time and organizing our efforts, we hit the bulls eye. Spirit, heart, mind and body working in concert is a winning combination.

When Venus sits down for a heart-to-heart with Uranus we’re able to align more clearly with our true heart’s desire and are able to dismiss ideas and values that are outdated or didn’t belong to us in the first place. Relationships will benefit from this renewed sense of honesty. Mercury’s alignment with both Mars and Saturn remind us it’s time to make some decisions and take action.

The Moon’s opposition to dreamy and illusionary Neptune in mid-afternoon can add inspiration or distraction. Perhaps we have been debating back and forth, considering our options and even getting lost in the possibilities. That’s all well and good, but now it’s time to decide and put a plan together. The hookup between Mars and Saturn confirms the time is right for pulling the pieces together.

Daily Muse: He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands, and his head and his heart is an artist. (St. Francis of Assisi)

TUESDAY
AUGUST 26
MOON in VIRGO

Moon Void of Course 7:29 pm (PDT) – 2:54 pm Wednesday afternoon

The value of mental and emotional clarity is underscored today as Venus the planet associated with love, money and values squares off with Saturn the planet of discipline. Venus in Leo is ‘high’ on love and life and not exactly open to hearing about relationship issues, budgets, or IRS audits. But Saturn in probing Scorpio is telling us a personal audit at this point is not such a bad thing. Coming to terms with issues that need to be dealt with, whether they concern relationships with others or with ourselves, is necessary.

It’s time to mentally slice through confusion, distraction, justifications and excuses to the truth. Although we may be feeling victimized – treated unfairly in romance, by the boss, or life in general – we can challenge our need to play this role. What is the payoff? (If we look deep enough we’ll find one!) The upside to this dicey energy is the opportunity to get greater clarity and to commit to attitudes and behaviors that will lead to greater personal happiness.

Daily Muse: It's not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What's hard…is figuring out what you're willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about. (Shauna Niequist)

WEDNESDAY
AUGUST 27
MOON in VIRGO / LIBRA

Moon enters Libra 2:54 pm (PDT)

Venus, Venus, Venus you are a busy girl this week! For the third day in a row, Venus is partnering up at the cosmic dance. This time it’s a square (need for adjustment or change of direction) with Mars the planet of energy and sexuality. This could seem like an echo of yesterday’s square with Saturn, although this one by comparison is gentler, teasing and more playful. Venus in Leo is looking for appreciation and recognition while Mars in Scorpio is lusting after something much deeper and more primal.

Both Leo and Scorpio are passionate and determined fixed signs so there could be a few fireworks especially in relationships. It may be hard to compromise, but integrating the needs and desires of both sides will feel more rewarding in the end. When the Moon enters Libra (one of Venus’s home signs) in mid-afternoon, the spirit of cooperation will seem more appealing.

Daily Muse: The love we seek is hidden within our own heart. (Stephanie Austin)

THURSDAY
AUGUST 28
MOON IN LIBRA

The Moon in idealistic Libra is looking for peace, harmony and perfection today, but not likely to find it. This is planet earth, after all! The Libra scales of justice are likely to swing back and forth with an optimistic lunar connection to Jupiter in the morning, a reality check when the Moon squares Pluto in the afternoon and a ride on the wild side when the Moon opposes revolutionary Uranus tonight. If we are willing to moderate our expectations with a dose of realism and compassion for ourselves and others we’ll find our personal emotional scales might stay more in balance. When things don’t go our way or even when there seem to be very real reasons to feel pain, regret or sorrow, staying with the feelings can move us through to greater insight and peace. Intense emotions can keep our focus on the present moment. If you are happy, enjoy it. If sad or melancholy explore the feeling knowing it is temporary and that it can be a useful guide and teacher.

Tonight an enlightening connection between the Sun and Saturn bodes well for ending the day, and starting tomorrow on a productive path.

Daily Muse: It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer. (Albert Einstein)

FRIDAY
AUGUST 29
MOON IN LIBRA

Moon Void of Course 9:00 am (PDT) – 1:53 am Saturday morning

We started the week with a sharp and steady focus with the New Moon in Virgo. As we near the weekend things may seem a bit out of focus. The Sun in organized Virgo is ‘steady as she goes’ with her books, and charts, and agendas and plans. However, as the Sun moves into an opposition with mystic and transcendent Neptune, we are reminded the mind without the spirit and heart can be mechanically automatic and robotic. Thankfully, Virgo is more adaptable and easy going than we might first suspect. As a mutable sign she is open to change; ruled by Mercury she values her thinking mind and the art of communication; as an earth sign she understands the need for steady and consistent progress even if it is unhurried and takes time.

Allow for a slower pace today that affords the opportunity to dive into the dreamy intuition of Neptune. Foster patience and schedule some quiet time for meditation, or daydreaming. You might as well go with the flow because not only is the Sun in a less than logical place today, Mercury the planet of thinking and communication is likely to be a bit off target as well. A linkage between Mercury and expansive Jupiter sends minds and conversations in hard-to-control and unexpected directions. And did I mention the Moon is drifting in a void-of-course pattern all day?

Daily Muse: We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. (Mother Teresa)

SATURDAY
AUGUST 30
MOON in LIBRA / SCORPIO

Moon enters Scorpio 1:53 am (PDT)

The mood for the weekend is introverted and private as the Moon enters transformation-seeking Scorpio. Give people emotional space and privacy as many will be consciously or unconsciously facing an inner demon or processing a deeply-felt emotion. A compassionate lunar connection to spiritual Neptune puts a focus on forgiveness and release. Although a lunar square to Jupiter could threaten an emotional eruption incited by disparate feelings or beliefs, the Moon’s facilitating connections to both the Sun and Pluto help identify and separate the issues that need to be addressed from the trivial and inconsequential.

Daily Muse: The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. (Hans Hoffman)

SUNDAY
AUGUST 31
MOON in SCORPIO

Emotionally we go even deeper on Sunday as the Moon in complex and psychological Scorpio schedules a one-on-one with both motivational Mars and transformational Pluto. This can be a delicate balancing act as we are enticingly drawn into looking at what scares or worries us. Imagine a loving guide taking your hand and walking you through the secret hideaway where you imagine you have successfully hidden your guilt and fear.

You are not alone on this path or any other. Respected Course In Miracles Teacher, Ken Wapnick, was fond of reminding us we all walk a path where we imagine ourselves to be injured, victimized, guilty and unlovable. Be willing to bring your fears out into the open. Looking at them in the light and with the awareness of your inner teacher they have no power over you. Make awareness, compassion, and forgiveness your focus.

Daily Muse: Never fear shadows. They simply mean there is a light shining somewhere nearby. (Ruth E. Renkel)

Mo
Out of Mo's Mind

My wife and I were at a local craft store the other day, getting some material cut. The lady with the scissors seemed to be suffering from the same allergies that were bothering me, so I mentioned it. From there a fascinating conversation ensued.

Somehow we got on the topic of cooking and it turned out that the lady had put together a cookbook for her daughters, consisting of recipes handed down from mother to daughter for five generations.

This was astonishing in itself, but she went on to relate that her family had been one of the early pioneer families of our state. With a sense of pride, she related that two of her ancestors had been territorial governors and that mountain peaks, counties, towns, numerous streets and even a few creeks had been named after her forebearers. We'd heard the name, of course, and as a historian, I found it all fascinating.

The three of us had a lovely conversation that turned a nondescript moment into something memorable. As we parted, it was obvious that we all felt great and had, perhaps, made each other’s day.

The question that's been nagging at me is, why doesn’t this happen more often?

I’m a people watcher and I’ve noticed that there seems to be a lack of communication or friendliness in our society.

A possible answer to my question came to me as I was brushing my teeth the other day. (I’ve been told that I think way too much.)

The answer that came was simple in some ways and complicated in others.

When I was a kid, it was considered impolite not to engage with people, even adults we didn’t know. If we were spoken to by someone, we were expected to answer politely. Times have changed.

I remember teaching my children not to talk to strangers. When confronted with a stranger, my kids would look to me and I’d give them a nod if it was okay to interact, but the rule of the time was that our children were discouraged from engaging with people they didn’t know.

Of course, this wasn’t without good cause. Perhaps the world has changed from when I was young, or perhaps it was always risky, but the truth of the matter is that parents do need to watch their children and protect them from danger.

It then occurred to me that now that our children have grown up, it’s entirely possible that the fear we implanted in them, in this case of strangers, still exists. I’m sure it isn’t the same and perhaps not even conscious, but there’s a definite disassociation and detachment that I see in that younger generation, the young to middle-aged adults of today, with the world around them.

The advent of pocket computers makes this all the more acceptable and easy to accomplish.

I’m sure this thought of mine is oversimplified, but I can’t help but believe that in some way the fears of parents often become the realties of their children.

The lady we spoke to in the craft store was about our age. Certainly, I’ve had discussions with younger people as well, but it’s much more common to get that feeling of connection with people of my own generation. There are obvious reasons for this, but I also think that we’re less afraid to connect.

For Baby Boomers, our teen years, twenties and thirties were pretty friendly times. The Summer of Love gave us a sense of community and mutuality that doesn’t seem to exist anymore, even with us.

Unfortunately, we no longer live in friendly times, but I'd like to see that change.

It’s vital for us to connect with each other and to realize that there are more interesting stories in everyday people than we can begin to imagine. Every single one of us has a story to tell and a unique perspective on life and the Universe. Every time we share a few words with someone, a smile or laugh, we enrich each other in a way so simple that we miss the fact it’s the essence of being human.

Humans communicate. We socialize, even if it’s only for a moment or two. We entrust each other with bits of our lives and share in the basic experience of being alive. By reaching out, even just a little bit, we tweak the energy of the world.

Not everyone will react to engaging in conversation, but if you try it, I think you’ll be surprised at how many people open up and change from being a sourpuss to a friendly, fellow-traveler on the journey. Just sharing a smile can make a huge difference.

We made a new friend last week. What could be better than that?

Until next week I wish you all peace, love and the kindness of strangers.

The Psychic Update

Trust Yourself

As I write this I am listening to Krishna Das, My Foolish Heart. I love this piece of music and it illustrates perfectly how I have been feeling lately. At times my foolish heart trusts people that let me down. I have learned over the last year especially that I must love and trust myself and I can’t expect that from anyone else. My foolish heart wants everyone to have integrity and my best interest heart, but guess what, that just isn’t how life works. Now I don’t mean to sound cynical or fatalistic. The facts are that we have to learn to trust ourselves and follow our own hearts.

Other people have to do the same. This is what it means to truly take responsibility for our choices and our lives. As a child I was raised in a conservative religion that taught me that the bishop of my church could receive divine revelation for me. I was not encouraged to ask for divine revelation for myself, I had to go to this man and ask him to ask God for me. I never agreed with this idea and I didn’t do it. I bucked the system even as a small child. I used to pray for myself and received plenty of divine guidance all by myself. I knew then as I do now that each of us carries a spark of the divine within ourselves.

We don’t even need to go outside ourselves to seek divine truth. It is right there in our hearts, if we just trust ourselves enough to ask. So why is it so hard to trust ourselves? We live in a society that says there is always a higher authority than us, that we must seek someone smarter, older, or more experienced than we are for knowledge. I challenge this idea in my own life and I encourage you to do the same. Throw caution to the wind and stop looking to “authorities” for answers. Look to yourself. Ask yourself what is true for you and trust it. This takes practice and time to see the results of your efforts, but I promise you that you will feel validated and happier when you follow yourself and the divine spark within you.

My Angelic Guide, Archangel Michael puts it this way, “Trust yourself and your own inner guidance above all else. You are the expert on your own life. You know what you need, and what will make you happy better than anyone. We, the angels, are here to guide and support you. Together we will work with you to support you in honoring your inner guidance.”

Now this may seem like a contradictory statement, an Archangel saying to trust ourselves first and askfor angelic support to learn to trust ourselves. I know, and I am sure you do as well, that much of what we do is based on what we think we should do, not on what we truly want. My guides have taught me honor myself first, and when I struggle with taking brave leaps, to ask for help.

I know that as an advisor on 12Listen.com I do a lot of validating and supporting the inner truth of my callers. We all need validation and confirmation, but what we don’t need is judgment and control.

See the difference? I thought you would!

Peace and blessings my friends

Carolyn'-s Art Picture

A meditative Goddess forms the base of this tree, her roots grow far beneath the ground which offer her stability as she thrives on this beautiful hill. She holds a lotus, one lotus is in the foreground floating on the water. The water represents emotion, in this scene the emotions seem tranquil. The lotus has had many symbolic meanings. It has been known as a divine symbol in Asian traditions representing the virtues of sexual purity, and non-attachment. Here you may be asked to meditate within to sense your own inner beauty. Enjoy your ability to ground yourself, which will help endlessly for manifesting dreams. Always count on yourself to make things happen in your life. Detach from the idea of someone else making your life the way you need it to be.
