If you all got impatient and went to my website, you saw another Summer client letter, but that was then– now I’m not in the mood for lots of words. (It was a long letter about Michael Beckwith’s great talk at the Rhythm and Soul celebration in Colorado). It’s hot and windless today in Santa Fe and I have a short attention span.
If I were to boil down the whole overwhelming experience of living through this much-prophesied time of change, it’s that it shows me every down comes down to this: I can choose to be positive and choose to be happy, or else waste a lot of time worrying. I have grown up hearing rhetoric about the war between good and evil, about heaven and hell, and in my own mythological understanding of the times, I feel they push me over and over again to make the pragmatic choice to be positive, and loving. I have a feeling every era has its people coming to the same conclusion.
Lately, I see lots of people in the middle of their changing lives–nervous about the future, but still trying to re-direct themselves towards a happier life. Many clients reveal the pain and uncertainty they feel about changes in their life, or ruefulness for what they lost, but then they move through the fear–they become more flexible and adaptable, they make more fulfilling choices. Our collective fate looks to be that we learn the hard way, but on an individual level, this is when the stars suggest it’s a time of choice, when we can break away from the past and choose to make ourselves happy. The best choice to make this summer!
With that, I will jump on my bike and ride to the plaza, where a great dance band is playing on the Santa Fe bandstand.
Have a great summer, I hope to see you here or elsewhere,
Itinerary: A brief trip to Providence, Rhode Island and Boston, July 30th-August 6th; I’ll be attending a conference and doing in-person psychic counseling and healing sessions. Please call my cell at 505-577-4012 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (I am not available in Santa Fe July 30th-August 7th.)
Workshops/Circles: They’ll be listed in the Fall newsletter, I’m thinking of West Texas as well as Northern California. However, right before the Fall equinox I’ll hold an intuition development workshop and circle here in Santa Fe– a new format that goes three hours; recently, people up in Colorado had a lot of fun with it. Sunday, September 17th, 3-6 pm. Please call for reservations, limited to eight.
Housekeeping: Cancer’s birthday card and message is posted as of July 13th at the Examiner.
That ends the psychic birthday cards for awhile–look for them again in 2012.
Mp3 files of sessions are $10, in person or by phone–cassettes are still included in person.
Re monthly psychic newsletters: I learned a lesson this Summer by bowing to internal and external pressure to get my newsletter posted around the 1st of the month….what an inferior job! I wasn’t ready to turn out anything polished at the end of June, I was half-baked myself. This year beginning with Fall, I may go back to posting newsletters only quarterly. I’ll continue to write and post articles on my blog and at the Examiner.

How to avoid the aggravation of instant karma this summer
Personal Guidance for Everyone in Summer 2010
Main personal message of Summer:
“Whittle, whittle, whittle, whittle,
whittle away what you don’t need,
what you don’t want, what you don’t use,
who you’re not, how it was, when you were, blah blah blah.
The bright air of today,
when you whittle away,
Main collective message: Summer’s violence is a sign to stop all escalation, to escalate nothing, to stop reacting to who did what. It’s the signal forget everything that happened in the past and just seek common values that create sustainable life. The cost of retaliation is too high.
How to create beauty and connection this Summer: Do you feel called to do something communal with your interests? This is an important time to offer yourself as a center in some way, and share what you care about. It could be an online community or in your place. Summer encourages community-building and becoming more effective in giving what you’ve got. Let the whole landscape light up with little centers of purposeful activity!
“Blessings to all participants in Summer’s Melee…
Letting go, letting go,
Is very much part of the powerful flow of now..
Are you going to go,
Do you save yourself for another time,
For uncertain fate?
…Why the wait?
Why not be willing to see where Nature can take you
if you want to be free?’ ”
Worst move to make this Summer: Engage in difficult behavior with anyone: Instant karma! Intense reactions! Summer lessons tend to have a stinging impact, it’s just how she rolls..
Summer visions in the air: People grieving; more people going choosing to be in service to the world; people hard-scrabbling; places uncared-for; a crazy person flying low under the radar, who feels called to deliver some fate–I thought to the East, and also the East coast. Earthquakes/volcanoes in Chile and Peru …in the world, disturbing goings-on and more violent violence.
On a happier note:Many good things are likely to manifest, too. This Summer, people can get their wish in a very big way. Payment is received, people get what’s due them. Necessary solutions are discovered. More people open up to spiritual guidance. The will to change is strong, the force of love is growing and coming out of more people in more ways, especially in August.
Summer 2010 Guidance for the Astrological Signs–read your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs
Aries: What seemed like a good idea yesterday might seem scary the next, but it looks like a case of the jitters, and that by August you can see the positive results of sticking with an inspired plan. It’s kind of an iffy time personally but don’t let that interrupt what you’ve begun. You’re breaking out of patterns and bubbles, you can smash through your obstacles now if you want, and one thing that helps is the recognition you get for your gifts. You are honored in some way.
Taurus: Accept all invitations! And give some out, too: entertaining can benefit you. This summer you learn what you truly enjoy, which may be different than what you’ve been idealistically committed to. Actual experience will inform you. A lack of enthusiasm and a depressing reality may be how you begin this season, but you are growing in compassion and love, and throughout this year you steer yourself towards greater personal fulfillment. Whatever you do, choose to make yourself happy–that’s your mission.
Gemini asks: “How to get to the top? How do I get to be in a place of knowledge and peace and tranquility? How do I rise above it all?” And the spirits say “Well, you ask too many questions. You demand too much of yourself and everything. Relax, chill out…let things emerge from your body; the knowledge of your body can inform you more; listen to your needs for fun. Be sure to do a couple of fun things a week this Summer.”
Cancer: Happy BIrthday Cancer! You might find yourself alone with a heavy heart; you can squeeze its burdens out like a sponge, and ask to be filled with better feelings, closer connections…make the choice to be happy! Be willing to receive! Here’s the surprise: Cancers are headed for a lot of success and it comes when they are more on their own, working with their own strengths and resources. Their gifts are desired, and they can proceed to successfully delivering them. “Everything’s been going wrong!” sobs Cancer. “But you’ve gotten rid of a lot!'” says the Spirit of Goodness and Holiness. You can now be blessed with unimaginable treasures…” The caveat is, you can’t be stuck in the past-you are headed for success when you don’t look back. You have what it takes to carry you forward: find your strengths, the stability within you know you can rely on, and build from there.
Leo: At first you can be filled with doubt, in a nervous place wondering whether you’re being led right: Are your ideas to change things about your work and who you’re with inspired by your highest good? It looks that way, but change is uncomfortable. The stars say you should be trying to go into new territory in a lot of different ways. In the big picture, you are likely to be reconfiguring your life, and if you aren’t, you probably should be–it’s just that time when everything comes due, and the life-changing choice of the “right path” is what you’re crossing over to.
Virgo: Your fate is unclear this summer, a condition you are likely to weather as circumstances and relationships eventually sort themselves out, and your place or path becomes clear. If you don’t wait it’s because you really want something and you act to acquire it, but more likely others make your position clear. “I want to leap beyond myself” says the deeper self of Virgo, who yearns for freedom of spirit. “I want a lot of closed cases in my life. I want to feel beneficent towards those who are left.”
Libra: There’s something you really want to find out that settles matters, and this Summer you do. What you learn allows you to more easily make a transition, and you can end up in a more powerful place, knowing much better what will create substance in your life. Just wait for this Spring’s events to bring results and information you can act on. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, and your Venutian side comes out this summer as you seek balance: This is what it says: “I need my pretty self, I need to be around pretty things, that’s a real tonic for me this summer. It’s hard to stay light, there can be difficulty with family! I need to balance that out by caring for myself, and knowing my limits.”
Scorpio: Hallelujah! You now are feeling safe and out of the fray. You’ve made it, you’re at peace, things are different, you’re much calmer, something is over… and something can begin as soon as you get some rest. Expect to be releasing like crazy… just let your body and your heart’s desires take over as you clean off the last few years. You have a lot to get rid of. Don’t rush to make good on any vows to tackle your challenges. You go on create a more interconnected life.
Sagittarius: You have the instinct to “go for it”, to keep on going with those plans that require boldness and bravery. Someone or some event can realign you and make you feel back on course. Things are good! Your spirit says, “I want to be really grounded. I want to be “still” more of the time. I want to re-group. I want to look at all my checks and balances and where I stand, where my material assets are. I want to learn from others and I have opportunities to do that, especially in October and February.”
Capricorn: It’s stressful, but you are turning onto the right road, getting on the right long-term path. It can be a difficult beginning as you do whatever it takes to get onto the right course. Your new ideas are strong, you’re happy about what you can develop, but expect to work hard to get yourself on board. New skills and abilities can emerge from your depths.
Aquarius: At first you are waiting for signs to direct you, feedback from the Universe, messages from your own source, and you may be doing something new that helps you connect. You want a higher vision for your life. It looks like a lot more is going to be happening shortly, and it will help get things rolling to take a trip, or get out of town for awhile. You want to be like royalty: to rise above the fray, yet instead, this time is likely to break you down in some way that results in a lot of personal growth. Outside help could guide you to focus on what’s under your control rather than the obstacles themselves.
Pisces: It should be perfectly clear if something is a bad idea, or that something isn’t going to work out; in some way you can be dealing with loss. Fortunately, adversity now can make you walk away and into a better place, or catalyze a beneficial identity change. Re your own personal path, your spirit says: “I want to go down deep, I want to listen; I want to know in a stillness, the truth for myself about certain things. I am liberating my hands, my creativity, my potential, my possibilities. This Summer I am working on a deep level, but in a gentle way, to rise above.”
