May 25 - May 31
Happy Birthday, Gemini

As I write this column, the Republic of Ireland is counting the votes on a referendum that will change history – not just for them – but will be a world precedent. If the referendum to amend the country’s constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry passes – and it looks like it will – the Republic of Ireland will be the first country to legalize same-sex marriage through a popular vote. Let’s hear it for Mercury retrograde!

Not that I think Mercury or its seemingly backwards motion is the cause, or responsible; but because the cosmic dance can be a mirror of our thinking and experiences. As above, so below. One of the gifts of a Mercury retrograde cycle is the ability to go back and review previous decisions and choices. Thank god! Not only Mercury, but many of the planetary cycles bring us round again to familiar territory. But when we come back, we bring with us a host of new experiences and insights. The world would be a weird place indeed if we were never able to see things differently, change our minds, and evolve.

This week, thanks to some notable energies coming to us from Uranus the planet of revolution and awakening, and Neptune the planet of dreams and transcendence, it will be well worth our while to think outside the box and really run with the idea of embracing the unusual or unfamiliar. When we cling to the historical and the traditional, with no better argument than – ‘because we have always done it this way’ – we are bound to be disappointed and maybe even disillusioned. Which in the long run, may not be such a bad thing. Some of our illusions could use a thorough review and evaluation.

Everything living on planet earth – blades of grass, erupting volcanoes, mighty oaks – remind us life is about growth. Growth involves change and change is inevitable. I may be the first to complain when they change the familiar wrapper on my favorite can of cocoa or change the menu and eliminate my ‘gotta have it’ sandwich. I stomp around and pout for awhile, until, more often than not, I try something new and realize I like it!

All change is not so easy to accept. And it’s easy to fall into a dark space of regretting things will never be the same. However, if I can be blunt, this is what we signed up for! Didn’t you read the fine print on the Earth Brochure? No me neither!

During the next month or so, and indeed during the rest of our lives, heroes will fall from their pedestals; enemies will be unmasked as friends; smart phones will get both bigger and smaller; and we will marvel over the times of our lives. Find your inner compass and watch with interest and amazement as the wheel of life continues to turn.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MONDAY
MAY 25
MOON in LEO / VIRGO

Moon enters Virgo 1:52 am (PDT)

It might be a very unpredictable and out of the ordinary day, much to the chagrin of the orderly Moon in Virgo. It’s best to roll with the punches as the Sun is out of sorts with rebellious Uranus. Venus the planet of love also makes an unstable connection to this planet of innovation and revolution creating a few surprises around love, relationships and finances. When shocked or surprised, it’s easy to turn to defensiveness and criticism instead of remaining neutral and taking a wait and see approach. Try the latter.

Usually we can call on Mars, the planet of motivation and action, to help us muscle through; but he’s under the spell of dreamy Neptune. It’s easy to get off course through distraction or simply losing our focus.

Generally it’s likely to be a day when even the most carefully planned agenda goes awry due mostly to external forces not under our control. Of course, internal forces can play an important role here as well. The Virgo Moon advises that we find a quiet space, or lock ourselves away from the many distractions. Easier said than done. Not feeling like we can escape, when we really want to, could leave us even crankier.

Finding our inner compass is the key. Looking to an inner guide or teacher for direction will help weather any storms and keep our peace of mind – especially about situations and events over which we have little or no influence.

Daily Muse: I will step back and let him lead the way. (A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson 155)

TUESDAY
MAY 26
MOON in VIRGO

Moon Void of Course 7:21 pm (PDT) – 2:42 pm Wednesday afternoon

The cosmic forces are kinder today starting with a productive lunar connection to Pluto which efficiently fits the pieces together. Staying on target and on purpose seems to take less effort. The fogginess of yesterday disappears like mist in the morning sunlight. This philosophical alignment grasps the lesson in all life events.

Later this evening when the Moon aligns with Venus it should be a good time to kick back with family or friends. The atmosphere is one of appreciation and thankfulness. A cozy dinner at home or out at the local bistro would be fun, or taking in a local music or theatre performance. The Moon is still in the somewhat cloistered sign of Virgo, so if you want to steal away for some time alone with a favorite hobby or creative art, this should feel very satisfying as well.

Daily Muse: What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. (Plutarch)

WEDNESDAY
MAY 27
MOON in VIRGO / LIBRA

Moon enters Libra 2:42 pm (PDT)

The cosmic pendulum is swinging again with a quickening of the energetic pace. A persnickety connection between the Sun and Venus could throw us a curve ball in the form of what I like to call a Psychic Whack. You know what I mean. You are going along thinking everything is fine then suddenly, smack. A careless remark by a friend, loved one, or even a stranger, goes straight to the heart. Or maybe it’s a petty irritation, annoyance, or delay pushing our buttons. People might be feeling sensitive and vulnerable today, so act accordingly. Resist taking things personally and go out of your way to be kind.

The Moon’s entry into Libra could help us find a comfortable balance, but remember the Libra Scales are interested in justice. We might come out swinging, especially if we are walking around with a chip on our shoulders just daring someone to knock it off. What to do? Pay attention to your feelings and take responsibility for them.

Retrograding Mercury meets up with Mars today which provides ample opportunity to express ourselves. This energy tends to be assertive and very animated. A good argument or debate is its idea of a great time! You can imagine the possibilities! But it can be used for good. Instead of using it to beat up on yourself or someone else, put it to the test to solve a puzzle or problem or clear the air. Set some ground rules and be sure to make it a fair fight!

Daily Muse: I wish that people who are conventionally supposed to love each other would say to each other, when they fight, ‘Please – a little less love, and a little more common decency.’ (Kurt Vonnegut)

THURSDAY
MAY 28
MOON in LIBRA

We might still be in the mind of settling old scores or righting some wrongs today, however, positive lunar connections to the Sun, Mercury and Mars, suggest our methods are clearer, more objective, and purposeful. That’s the essence…what’s our purpose? It’s a great day to clear the air. But first let’s get clear ourselves. How would our conversations and actions be different if we assumed we are innocent and everyone else is too? Can you let that sink in? It’s kind of hard isn’t it? We can get so caught up in the duality and seeming polarities (I’m innocent, everybody else is guilty) we often miss the obvious shades of gray and the irony. (I’ll let you figure this out on your own!)

Mercury retrograde is a gift from the cosmos, allowing us to stop periodically and imagine something different. As Mercury backs into a square with dreamy Neptune tonight, thinking can feel even more muddled as intuition, hopes, wishes, dreams and visions of a different world, a different way of being, fill our consciousness. Of course we could cling to the old and imagine a nightmare, but why bother? Allow your ideas and sacred ‘truths’ to be challenged and turned upside down. Allow intuition to work collaboratively with your thinking mind.

Daily Muse: I would rather excel in the knowledge of what is excellent, than in the extent of my power and possessions. (Plutarch)

FRIDAY
MAY 29
MOON in LIBRA

Moon Void of Course 1:20 pm (PDT) – 2:34 am Saturday morning

The Libra Moon has mellowed with age and today we see a different aspect of the Libran personality – the one that values relationship and companionship above all else. It’s not all sweetness and light with a lunar opposition to Uranus and square to Venus; but these spicy aspects make compromise and collaboration all the more rewarding. Getting along with others isn’t about having identical needs and preferences, but rather the ability to embrace differences as non-important, and maybe even interesting. Today we lay down our weapons, maybe because we are tired of fighting, or maybe because we realize we are all the same in the ways that really count.

Daily Muse: Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you. (Wayne Dyer)

SATURDAY
MAY 30
MOON in LIBRA / SCORPIO

Moon enters Scorpio 2:34 am (PDT)

The Moon quietly slips into the depths of Scorpio today seeking answers for some of life’s most difficult and evasive questions. Mercury is halfway through its cycle as it backs into an alignment with the Sun. Typically this is a time we can more clearly see ourselves and bring forth useful insights. This is still true today, but the clarity may be harder to come by, with a cranky connection between Mercury and Venus, the planet of values. Jumping to negative judgments about ourselves or others is a potential pitfall; but if we hold truth as our guiding compass, we can move quickly through moments of regret or self-doubt to higher ground.

Daily Muse: If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. (Peace Pilgrim)

SUNDAY
MAY 31
MOON in SCORPIO

A challenging emotional week isn’t over without a bit more topsy-turvy energy that interferes with any idea of smooth sailing into the sunset. Once again, finding our center and relying on intuition will serve better than attempting to rationalize and think things out. Both Venus and the Sun make tricky connections to Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions. Rather than face our inner monsters we could choose escape through a variety of means – alcohol, drugs, sleep, and food certainly come to mind. However, as the planet of spirituality, Neptune can be a reminder if we look below the surface for a deeper and more meaningful context, surely we will find one. The fog of Neptune can confuse and offer some slippery slopes. Learning to navigate the waters of this mystical planet requires courage, an open mind, and a willingness of spirit to challenge our version of ‘reality.’ Everything really is ok. Open your inner eyes and see.

Daily Muse: Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense. (Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland)

Out Of Mo's Mind
Mo
by Mo Abdelbaki

One summer's day, about 50 years ago, my friend Jack and I were walking on the side of the road, the way boys do during summer months. We were bored and wandering through the neighborhood, looking for anything to do.

There was absolutely nothing going on, so we shuffled aimlessly, until suddenly a glimpse of something white in some weeds caught my eye. I bent down and picked it up. It was an old golf ball, caked in dry mud. I couldn't have been more delighted. I licked my fingers and wiped it as clean as a boy cares about. (As I write this, I marvel at the fact that any of us survived.)

Its days as a teed-up ball were over. It was gouged and its cover torn. On a boring, summer’s day, this discarded and useless piece of trash was a treasure demanding to be the center of attention.

Jack said, "I've heard there's a Steelie in the middle of every golf ball."

To boys of a certain age, at a certain time in history, finding a Steelie was like pulling a Picasso out of a dumpster. Steelie's were technically nothing more than ball bearings, but on the playground, they were unobtainable weapons of domination, the light-sabers of the marble world. Only 2 kids in our class owned Steelies and they’d systematically beat us out of our precious taws, cat eyes, aggies and clearies. We may have just been boys, but we played for keeps.

The idea of getting a free Steelie to exact marble revenge would have been enough, but the added prospect of destroying a golf ball was irresistible and the afternoon became an adventure.

I won't belabor the difficulties involved in stripping a golf ball of its covering, but suffice to say that pliers, hacksaw blades and cursing were involved, not to mention brute strength and skinned knuckles. It was all worth it. Once the last piece of white armor was gone, we were rewarded with a wonder that neither one of us had ever seen before, an inner ball comprised of the longest, most tightly-wound rubber band anyone had ever seen.

I began to unwind it and suddenly it took on a life of its own, jumping crazily as yard after yard of tightly wound elastic found freedom. By now, we’d moved to a school playground and were sitting on the swings. Other than creaking, the zip of rubber, an occasional "wow," or a gasp as the ball shot here or there, all was silent.

After what seemed an eternity, the rubber band ran out. With anticipation, we approached the red, rubber orb on the ground in front of us. It was permanently scarred, crisscrossed by its confinement. I picked it up and handed it to Jack. He looked at it for a long time and nodding, handed it back to me. I’d found it. It was my honor.

I reached into my pocket, pulled out my pen knife (it was a different time) and tentatively, with Jack watching closely, stuck the knife into the core, expecting to strike shiny, solid steel. Instead, a goo oozed out.

Jack said, "I've heard that some golf balls have acid in the center and that it can eat your skin off.” Now he tells me.

I sniffed the goo on my hands, wiped it on my jeans and waited for bones to poke through my flesh. Nothing happened, so I began sawing at the ball with the knife. Jack told me I was crazy, but I'd gotten this far and had to know exactly what was inside this thing. The answer turned out to be goo and nothing more.

Disappointed and suddenly bored, I dropped the dissected core and we walked away, leaving an incredible mess on the playground for someone else to deal with.

Over the years, I got pretty good at stripping down a golf ball, but I never found a Steelie. I have no idea whether or not there was ever a steel ball in the middle of any golf ball, or if it was just a myth.

It's funny how that old memory makes sense to me now. There are all sorts of philosophies and ideas about what happens to us eventually; what we’ll find when we get to the core. For some, there's a bright, shiny Steelie to look forward to. Others imagine gooey, caustic acid. It's possible that neither one is right.

All I know for sure is that like unraveling a golf ball, life is sometimes unpredictable, wound with plenty of zip and fraught with occasional snaps or a scraped knuckle or two. It’s also fascinating.

I have no idea what I'll find at the center. To be honest, I don't care, not even a bit.

For me, joy is in the moment, the mystery that comes every day and the realization that losing a few marbles isn’t all that bad.

Until next week, I wish you all peace, love and something fascinating to explore.

Balance Grid


This week on Angela Hartfield’s radio show, Elements of Love, I presented my Balance Crystal Grid. You can hear the archive of the show here.

While meditating about what we needed from a grid in the coming weeks I was shown that we are all struggling with finding balance within ourselves and in our lives. I created this grid to support balance in all areas of our lives as well as our energy bodies.

The center stone in an Apache Tear, which is a stone that grounds and protects us. The Root Chakra stone is Tiger Iron which is also a grounding stone. It reaffirms our connection to the energy of the earth and gives us a sense of safety, security and stability.

The Sacral Chakra stone is Carnelian Agate. It supports creativity and emotional expression, encouraging innovation and forward motion. The Solar Plexus stone is Yellow Calcite. It supports self-esteem and boosts personal power. The Heart Chakra stone is Malachite. It supports love of self and balances relationships.

The Throat Chakra stone is Blue Sapphire. It encourages speaking your truth and supports clear communication. The Third Eye stone is Amethyst. It energizes the Third Eye and encourages intuition. The Crown Chakra stone is Clear Quartz. It is a master healer, clearing and balancing the energies in the head, encouraging a strong connection to the divine. The stones on the corners are Tibetan Quartz. Tibetan Quartz balances the top and bottom of the energy body.

This grid supports the connections between chakras that help us to find balance. The Root and Crown stones oppose one another, balancing the earth connection and divine connection. This is key to finding true balance in the energy body. The Root and Heart stones also oppose one another, bringing a sense of security to the heart chakra, opening us up to feel safe enough to love. The Sacral and Throat stones oppose one another encouraging identification and expression of the emotions. And finally, the Solar Plexus and Third Eye stones oppose one another, encouraging trust of and self and intuition.

Print this grid and place it under your mattress to assist in balancing your energy body when you are the most open, while you are sleeping. Make it the background on your cell phone and hold your hands over the picture whenever you need a balanced boost. We are all energy, and this picture holds as much power as the actual stones. Give it a try!

Many blessings,
Kristi

Oliver's Weekly Affirmative Prayer
Advisor Oliver
by Oliver

Oliver can you pray for a specific person to fall in love with you?

Yes! I suppose you can, but would I advise you to do so? Probably not and here is why. First I believe you may deny yourself the opportunity to meet someone who could exceed what your current love interest has to offer. Sometimes just praying for what is in your highest and best will make room for the big old Universe to create its magic, It sometimes has a way of showing us what we may not have thought of ourselves. Second, imagine if someone you yourself had no desire in knowing did the same to you. I can't imagine that would feel good. My point is, have an idea of who you would like as partner and pray for that instead.

“ I am Spirit expressing, I am one with Spirit, Spirit is manifesting itself through me and I am now consciously aligning my self with Spirit. Calmness is in my heart and stress is a word of yesterday, and from this moment on I live in perfect harmony with the peaceful voice of Spirit and Spirit's creation. I am blessed and I am loved and with a grateful heart I say thank you! And so it is!”

Carolyn'-s Art Picture

Shaman dancing next to medicine chair. Santana guitar leans against chair, doves enjoy the energy. It’s time to open your seventh chakra with powerful expansiveness. This chakra is about spirituality and connection to the divine. When focusing on the 7th chakra to open fully, your inspiration will flow through you which will lead to fresh opportunities/horizons. To connect, try meditation, listening to some music, and/or create a dance movement. Visualize either WHITE or PURPLE, both have been considered the color of the 7th chakra. I tend toward using the white!
