Join organizations and groups of like-minded people and work to bring about the changes our world so dearly needs. Our lives depend on it.
For All of Us:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Remember playing on the seesaw when you were in grammar school? It was all about awareness and balance. Which are what you’ll need as you embrace your true gift– learning and practicing a new way of appreciating yourself. Sometimes what is really correct in a situation can only be determined by establishing a new inner “truth meter”.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) This is a time of subtle challenges and major changes for you. At this time, your awareness of these challenges and changes is more advanced than your ability to clearly articulate them. “Listen between the lines” and pay careful attention to your inner voice.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Different, unusual, and strange are words that have often been used to describe you. Unique, inventive, and creative can also be used. The difference is the emphasis you place on them. Remember, being different doesn’t make you defective. Some of the brightest and most successful people in our world are deep thinkers who rarely started out as part of the “in crowd”.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Maturity, discipline and responsibility came early for you as a child. Self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” and admit to yourself what everyone else is already aware of– how important and powerful you are in your world.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) This is a magical time for you. You’re getting a refresher course in the correct use of will and what it produces. Willingness is like laughter– use it and the world moves with you. Willfulness is like rust on a spigot– difficult to use and nothing positive flows from it. Lightly focus on what you want, trust it to come to you and enjoy watching life flow your way.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) These last few years have been interesting. You’re someone who can see what others can’t conceive of yet. Because of this, your natural sensitivity and vulnerability to the whims and wishes of others isn’t as exposed as it used to be. The best way to use this milestone? Begin carefully laying the groundwork for your next projects– they have a great chance of being successful.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Self-esteem is the lesson and the reward for you at this time. It’s important that you encourage yourself to honor one of your greatest gifts– your uniqueness. Comparing yourself to others only diminishes you and your creative spirit. Focus on and nurture your value by following the advice of one of the patron “saint” of individuality, Jimi Hendrix– “Let your freak flag fly!”
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Maturity, discipline, and responsibility came early for you as a child. Self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” and admit to yourself what everyone else is already aware of– how important and powerful you are in your world.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Intense and impatient, you’ll benefit from lightening up and going with the flow. Otherwise, you’re likely to become overly emotional and there may be a tendency to try and force situations. The most positive way to get things to go your way is to simply ask– people really do want to help you get what you want.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) This is a lucky period for you and your magnetism is at an all-time high. Be observant and you’ll spot the opportunities available to you, as well as develop the discipline and habits you’ll need in order to help make your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You’re filled with immense potential and enormous impatience at the same time! Here’s a simple exercise to help you learn to wait productively– plant a few seeds in fertile soil. As you ‘wait’ for them to grow and flower, you’ll learn the value of patience by ‘encouraging’ the process as you water, nurture and tend the seeds. This powerful, natural experience and the lessons learned from it will stay with you forever.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Are you properly using your energy or is it improperly using you? You’ve grown more perceptive and you’re processing information at a much faster rate than in the past. Focus less on “getting things done” and more on interacting with others and allow the new input to direct your flow of creative energy into newer and more rewarding forms of creative expression.
