AUGUST 31- SEPTEMBER 6

The cosmic highlight this week is the end of the six-week Venus retrograde pattern in dramatic and self-affirming Leo. In truth, we may have come to some clear but inconvenient truths about our lives, relationships, values and attitudes towards finances during this time. This is a cleansing and purifying process in which we have separated the wheat from the chaff and can now begin to put our energies into those ideas, beliefs, relationships and activities that matter most to us.

The Moon will be in nurturing and emotional Cancer on Sunday September 6th when Venus stations direct and slowly begins to move forward for the third time through the last degrees of Leo. Those first few days may be tinged with a bit of sadness if we look longingly back at the past and second-guess decisions we have made to leave something or someone behind. Note to self – don’t look back!

In a world filled with synchronicities I came across this quote from the collection of sayings of the Buddha. ‘If by giving up a lesser happiness, one may behold a greater one. So let the wise man give up the lesser happiness in consideration of the greater happiness.’ How often do we cling possessively to an idea or a way of being, even long after we know its gifts are meager? We all, (well most of us anyway) claim to want joy and happiness. But do we prioritize those attitudes, beliefs and activities that are in alignment with happiness and joy? Maybe it’s a very human condition to turn a blind eye to what truly nurtures, supports, and brings happiness. However, it’s a very divine condition to know the truth. Thank God our essential divine nature is beyond our limited perception of this body and this world!

This is a time to start looking toward the future with the assurance we are making great choices and decisions based clearly on our values. Bless the past and be willing to release whatever is not in alignment with your highest good. Each person, relationship, purchase and event has served a purpose – no need for regrets. Set your intention to nurture what you have identified as valuable and important in your life. Remember too, the lessons learned may not be for you alone. You may have the opportunity to share your insights and guide others on the same path. Nothing is truly lost on the path of change and evolution.

Happiness is a gift we give ourselves. What will our lives look like if we pro-actively choose to treat our happiness like a treasured possession – prioritizing its care and protecting it with our devotion and attention? Want to find out? Me too!

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes

MONDAY
AUGUST 31
MOON in PISCES / ARIES

Moon enters Aries 1:33 am (PDT)

The Moon in pioneering and energetic Aries greets the day with enthusiasm and an ambitious to-do list. But alas, a disorienting Sun opposition to Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions, threatens to derail the best laid plans with distractions. This is a highly imaginative and creative energy; however it takes great discipline to harness its power and not let it dissipate in circles of endless fantasy. Confusion and indecision are more than possible so don’t push yourself or anyone else to make a commitment or decision. Because intuition is free-flowing, this is a good time to tap into your natural psychic abilities. Although the feisty energy of the Moon will not agree, the word for today is ‘allow’ (not push!)

This evening offers a sweet and sexy surprise as cosmic soul mates Venus and Mars come together in dramatic Leo. Monday may not be your usual date night; however tonight’s sassy and dramatic energy holds lots of promise for couples looking to find some magic.

If you are not in the romantic frame of mind, keep reading. This energy brings together desire and passion with energy and motivation creating promising new starts for ideas and projects. Do you hear a calling? Do you have a ‘bucket’ list of ideas or projects you want to do? Remember this is just the beginning. Something worthwhile may very likely require your attention and energy for an extended time in order to develop into maturity.

Daily Muse: The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. (Confucius)

TUESDAY
SEPTEMBER 1
MOON in ARIES

Moon Void of Course 9:37 am (PDT) – 2:02 am Wednesday morning

The morning is energized by an infusion of dash and daring as the Moon in fiery Aries meets up with Uranus the planet of revolution and innovation. Although we may be tempted to push personal agendas or pet projects forward, we are not likely to be very effective today. Aligning with others towards joint goals is a better use of our time rather than trying to go it alone.

Avoid the naysayers and cynics who may be particularly vocal today. You know the ones; those who seem to never have anything positive or upbeat to say, are chronic complainers and seem to have a talent for finding the flaws in everything. Imagine every delay or challenge as purposeful in your life. This doesn’t mean you have to be a Pollyanna, but likewise, you don’t need to join the chorus of ‘the sky is falling!’ Aspire to be the sober and reasonable voice others are glad to hear.

Daily Muse: To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness. (Eckhart Tolle)

WEDNESDAY
SEPTEMBER 2
MOON in ARIES / TAURUS

Moon enters Taurus 2:02 am (PDT)

For the most part the cosmic gods are smiling today with a Moon in stable and sensuous Taurus making easy and harmonizing connections to Jupiter and the Sun in sister earth sign Virgo, to Neptune in imaginative Pisces, and to Pluto in pragmatic Capricorn. Efforts applied to a task or project should be efficient and successful, if (and it’s kind of a big if), we can create priorities and stick to them. With a distracting connection between Jupiter and Uranus, the tendency is to spread ourselves too thin by trying to take on too much or to multi-task.

My friend and colleague, Animal Communicator, Joan Ranquet, describes multi-tasking as a myth. Rather than being something we should aspire to, we can realize when we try to do two or more things at the same time, what we are really saying is ‘one of these tasks or people is not worthy of my full attention.’ Is that the message we are really trying to convey?

Today can be an achieving and rewarding day when we are willing to focus our attention 100% on our chosen activity. This includes resting, relaxation, eating and nurturing ourselves. Remember the Taurus Moon loves to make the body feel good. When you take a break for a meal or snack, give it your full attention and savor every sip and mouthful.

Daily Muse: The ancient Romans had a tradition; whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as the capstone was hoisted into place, the engineer assumed accountability for his work in the most profound way possible: he stood under the arch. (Michael Armstrong)

THURSDAY
SEPTEMBER 3
MOON in TAURUS

A potentially confusing alignment between thinking Mercury in socially-conscious Libra and Neptune in imaginative Pisces can be disorienting today. Although there are potentially many manifestations including increased creativity, there is also the possibility we are not particularly clear headed especially when it comes to fairness, balance and justice. If you are quick to judge yourself or someone else, take a step back. Tapping Neptune’s natural ability for compassion and forgiveness is a positive way to create a level of justice and inclusion that is above the world’s idea of an eye for an eye.

The Taurus Moon is patient and wise to the ways of the physical world. When we set our sights on a goal, we usually want to see it manifest instantly. Although this is entirely possible, mass consciousness on planet earth at this time is working against it. Although, the dense stuff of matter does move according to our intentions and will, it is usually at a pace much slower than our minds would like. However, that’s no reason to give up. Holding our intentions clearly and our focus steady is what makes it possible to build skyscrapers and create healthy habits. Keep your eye on the goal; evaluate your progress; and make adjustments as necessary.

Daily Muse: Character is simply habit long continued. (Plutarch)

FRIDAY
SEPTEMBER 4
MOON in TAURUS / GEMINI

Moon Void of Course 3:20 am (PDT) – 4:48 am

The Moon enters bright and inquisitive Gemini early this morning. Although Gemini is ruled by thinking Mercury and tends to be cerebral and logical, with lunar squares to both Jupiter and Neptune, this Gemini Moon is listening to a voice and intelligence that is mystical and otherworldly. Dreams and illusions may seem more real than usual. Ideas fueled by imagination run unrestrained and unchecked by the rational mind. Not a bad thing; simply be advised.

A harmonizing lunar connection to Mercury this evening confirms this is a great day to participate in studies and conversations of a metaphysical or spiritual nature. It’s worth your while to listen to your intuition and write down your observations and thoughts. If you are a writer or so inclined, this is a good day to put your ideas and thoughts to paper.

Daily Muse: Myth is much more important and true than history. History is just journalism and you know how reliable that is. (Joseph Campbell)

SATURDAY
SEPTEMBER 5
MOON in GEMINI

Moon Void of Course 4:04 pm (PDT) – 10:40 am Sunday morning

As the Moon enters the fourth and final quarter of this lunar cycle, the Moon in flexible Gemini is at odds with the Sun in pragmatic Virgo. Both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by thinking Mercury; but where Gemini thrives on versatility and socialization and likes to sample and scan rather than go deep; Virgo opts for practical and detailed analysis, solitude and a no-nonsense approach.

There are many ways to bring these two cerebral and mental energies together; but not without some effort. Struggling with conflicting ideas, and beliefs, and juggling priorities may not be the way we want to spend our day; however if we do, we’ll be glad we did. We may realize some aspects of our lives deserve a more carefree or even superficial glance while others require more of our attention and focus.

I have a feeling we won’t have much of a choice. The day will unfold in such a way we will need to take a stand in one or more areas of our lives. A definite bonus comes our way as a productive alliance between the Sun and Pluto clicks into place in late afternoon. We feel energized and strong in our convictions. Straightforward Pluto helps bring priorities into perspective and fortify our allegiances.

Today may bring some divergent energies manifesting as internal struggles or conflicts or disagreements with others. The important thing to remember is perspective. This doesn’t need to turn into a fight. This is the opportunity to clarify our values and priorities and simply take a stand with ourselves and with others. We don’t have to convince others to change their ideas or values or to adopt ours. As Venus nears the end of her retrograde period tomorrow, this is a valuable opportunity to see our own truth.

Daily Muse: You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. (Winston Churchill)

SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 6
MOON in GEMINI/CANCER

Moon enters Cancer 10:40 am (PDT)
Venus Stations Direct 1:29 am (PDT)

The main astrological event today is the end of the six-week Venus retrograde pattern as Venus stations direct and slowly begins moving forward again. In truth, we may have come to some clear but inconvenient truths about our lives, relationships, values and attitudes towards finances. This is a cleansing and purifying process in which we have separated the wheat from the chaff and can now begin to put our energies in those ideas, beliefs, relationships and activities that matter most to us.

With a Moon in nurturing and emotional Cancer, today may be tinged with a bit of sadness if we look longingly back at the past and second-guess decisions we have made to leave something or someone behind. Note to self – don’t look back! This is a time to start looking toward the future with the assurance we are making great choices and decisions based clearly on our values. Bless the past and set your intention to nurture what you have identified as valuable and important in your life. Remember too, that lessons learned may not be for you alone. You may have the opportunity to share your insights and guide others on the same path. Nothing is truly lost on the path of change and evolution.

Daily Muse: The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud…The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. ... Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. (Goldie Hawn)

Out Of Mo's Mind
Mo
by Mo Abdelbaki

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.
— Old saying that’s done much more harm than good

The on-air shooting on live television this week was tragic on many levels and it again brought something to light that needs to be discussed.

In the past few days, I’ve heard the gunman called a monster, lunatic, madman, evil and crazy. Certainly, his actions were monstrous and not of a sane person, but such names, used in news stories by journalists to describe him, do more harm than good.

Obviously, the reporters may be emotionally connected to the story, for all the right reasons, but the moment we call someone a monster, we remove ourselves from the reality of the situation, namely that often the person has serious mental issues that weren't addressed.

There's a stigma in our society surrounding mental illness. No matter how hard we try to ignore that fact, it exists and until we can change attitudes about seeking help, we will be at the mercy of those who become disenfranchised and imagine that they have nothing left to lose.

We all know that the gun lobbies are massively funded and grease the wheels of government to turn in their favor. Though we fervently hope for some sort of workable legislation on the subject, we also have to be realistic and work on our culture in the meantime.

This begins with us, by seeing these perpetrators of crimes for what they are – humans with severe problems.

It would be easier if they were monsters. We could then pick them out of a crowd by their fur, or scales. It would be great if we could unerringly define “crazy.” They would stick out instantly by their “crazy” actions, or by their scores upon taking the Standardized Crazy Test.

The truth is, the mentally disturbed walk amongst us as family members, colleagues, friends and neighbors. We drive alongside them in traffic, stand behind them in lines, sit next to them in restaurants and may even live with them.

We have to acknowledge this fact and realize that the difference between mental health and mental illness may be as clear as brain chemistry, or as complex as a life’s history. No matter the cause, mental illness is real.

We have to remove the stigma attached to being mentally ill.

Every one of us, at one time or another, has felt alone, outcast and lost. We have found ourselves confused by our search for meaning and have looked depression in the eye. We've faced the dissolution of relationships, loss of jobs, loneliness, betrayal and even addiction.

Thankfully, most of us have found a path to make our way out of the darkness and back into a healthy life, often with help. Many, however, never seek the light, due to a fear of being considered “crazy.”

As long as there's fear and loathing attached to mental illness, those who need help the most will continue to avoid treatment, rather than risk being pigeonholed as different. This can lead to isolation and paranoia, pushing the individual more underground, often into the waiting arms of like-minded individuals.

It's up to us to recognize the fact that our words carry immense weight and have consequences, far beyond our circle of influence. Even if others don't agree with our point of view, following this truth can change the paradigm, in time.

This isn't about inclusion or political correctness. This is about the human condition and the realization that words can hurt us and sometimes the labels we use against others become weapons turned back upon us, often with horrific results.

I’m going to start writing newscasters, asking them to stop using words like crazy and monster, even if the acts are genuinely monstrous. It may not help, but then again it may. Only by showing interest in solving the problem and not just pointing at it, can we we ever hope to get a handle on this growing issue in our society.

If we can offer hope, rather than judgement, perhaps someone with a problem who recognizes it will feel more comfortable seeking help. The alternative is to change nothing and continue to allow dangerous members of society to slip through the cracks, only to reemerge as our worst nightmares.

Something has to change. It begins with us.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

There is No
Right Way!

My favorite book from college is “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn. I read it for a Sociology 101 class and it changed my way of thinking. The book taught me a very important premise that I did not get from my childhood. There is no one right way to live. Diversity is the key to successful human civilizations just as it is in all ecosystems. This message is only one from the book, but it is the one that continues to stick with me all these years later.

Living in rural Idaho as a child the message was always that everyone needed to live one way in order to be happy and worthy of love and eternal life. This was a hard thing to do and many people lived outside the accepted “right way.” These people lived with shame and fear that when they died they would not go to heaven and would not be with their loved ones again. They were shunned in their community and lived on the fringe. When I was young it never dawned on me that maybe they just needed to live a different way to be happy. Now I know that there as many right ways to live as there are people on this planet.

One of the things that I hope to do for all of the people I work with, whether you read this column, listen to me on the radio, or call me on 12 Listen is to instill a sense of divinity in each of you. I believe that the divine resides in all of us, and there is no one right way to be divine, you are divine in this very moment as you read The Power Peek.

Diversity is the key to a healthy life, community, society and world. We need opposing views and differing lifestyles. Diversity stimulates thinking and debate and ultimately inspires innovation. Diversity challenges us to love unconditionally and to choose respect for life over shared beliefs.
Allowing diversity to thrive is a challenge that we must take up. We are all one, but we are not all the same, and that is why we are all divine!

Blessings my friends,
Kristi

Oliver's Weekly Affirmative Prayer (Encore)
Advisor Oliver
by Oliver

Oliver is there a spiritual practice you can recommend?
It is very tempting to say yes, but maybe we should first ask what is spirituality? And even that question seems almost too personal to answer and that is probably where it is all at, ones spirituality is personal business. I follow the Science of Mind philosophy, but it is not for everyone, however it works for me and took me years to find. Others follow A Course in Miracles and it fulfills them, others love a good yoga practice and it makes them feel connected. I suppose it is the word connected that is profound here. I suggest you feel your way through this and ask yourself what it is that makes you feel connected and what it is that makes you feel fulfilled. I truly believe you'll know it when you find it because it'll give you the feeling of finally having arrived home.

“Infinite Truth, infinite Spirit is here and everywhere present. It moves through me and it can only do for me what it can do through me. I open up my heart and I know my own personal spiritual path now reveals itself to me. Feeling connected and feeling fulfilled I know I have arrived home. With a grateful heart I release this prayer … And so it is!”
