In the middle of posting my September newsletter, I noticed that whatever posting job I did of the August newsletter, didn’t do the trick! Here is the omitted August news:
Spiritual lessons and messages come in a variety of languages and from many different sources. My big lessons always seem to involve a lot of adrenalin coursing through my system. Every once in awhile, I get into some kind of jam in an out-of-the-way place. Hopped up on fear and exhiliration, it’s often when I learn something important, and fast. Yesterday, I got a little lesson in the value of staying calm from a rattlesnake.
It was the morning after an unplanned-for late-night birthday surprise starring Mercury retrograde and my Acura, which had to be towed. The tow truck driver let me off at a nearby Motel 6 in Bernalillo, NM. Luckily, the RailRunner train up to Santa Fe was just across the street.
Arriving a few minutes early to the train station, I walked a little ways down the RailRunner track–and there was a real roadrunner, running in front of me into the desert! I plopped down to write my very late newsletter, looked to my right, and there was a big rattlesnake! Don’t just sit down in a desert without looking around.
The rattler had been slithering across the arroyo, his long body a gorgeous pattern of beige, tawny and taupe that blended right in with the ground. We were so close his strike could reach me!
I instinctively calmed my guts down after the first surprised glance, seeing he froze immediately when I spied him. I just wanted him to keep moving across my field of vision and into the hills.
I conjured up a calm positivity again–it helped a little bit (but not that much!) that the snake was so beautiful, and that rattlers have been an omen for me of new knowledge and creative gifts.
Very slowly, stopping and starting, the big snake moved forward after a few moments of relaxation issued from my stomach. Then would stop moving the split second I got gripped with fear. Finally he undulated out of range, and I could get up!
More often than not lately, something weird happens to me when I go to write my newsletter, but out of the experience comes a sign of the times, something relevant to the month’s or year’s energies and nature. My take-away was that in encountering power and opportunity in this volatile time, staying relaxed and peaceful made things flow and go forward; getting uptight and acting out of fear makes it much more likely to be strikingly opposed.
Have a wonderful month and stay cool!
P.S. My break is over and I’m ready to book more private psychic counseling and spiritual healing appointments, in person or by phone. Email me at email@example.com, or call 505-982-3294.
Psychic Messages and Astrology for August 2012
Two Full Moons: The month begins on a full moon in Aquarius, and ends on a full (blue) moon in Pisces. In between, the stars suggest people can and will figure out alot, including how to attract new audiences. Do what’s important now, follow the right routine for success now in these fast-moving times. Don’t think you’ll have time to do it later, some opportunities never come around again. Opportunity hangs around like smoke, just for awhile.
Sun in Leo: It’s natural to want to have your way, to put a lot of energy into things and make sure they get done…it’s a kick-ass month. If you have no qualms about what you’re going after so aggressively–if you feel it’s right and right for you–go for it in this vibrant, dynamic atmosphere of opportunity–the power to create is as strong as the sun beating down.
Speaking of Leo, it can be a really different year for Leos, with the biggest changes in their worklife, beginning half-way through their birthday year.
For all signs: Where success lies for many now is in the unknown…be willing to try the untried and leave behind the familiar. It’s not important to hold to your old identity, only that you are acting on your fulfillment now.
It’s a great time to network and fan the flames of creativity with daring. Go with your forward-thinking ideas. Carry on into the summer nights of 2012!
Mercury is still retrograde the first eight days of August, emphasizing the right timing of continuing to “Get Stuff Done” that will clear your plate and simplify your life. It’s when to re-prioritize your life according to what you are finding important now.
Deep Stuff Can Surface: You’re likely to attract experiences that give you a way to release the past and move forward, even if it looks like you’re re-visiting your old self. Some kind of strange circumstance can develop and erupt that triggers your emotions. Dealing with it can release you from its clutches.
What matters most about what you go through this month, is how things can turn around. Don’t think you can’t change! Notice how you have changed!
Our Unstable World: It’s as if some mainstay to our structure snaps…there’s a fundemental breakdown beginning, probably with the credit and monetary system, allowing for greater change which manifests as soon as September.
August 2012 Personal and Spiritual Guidance (first published at the Examiner July 29, 2012)
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): You continue to journey towards new expressions and unfoldments of your own power, and something ignites…something that is not so familiar–there are new resources becoming evident. This happens once you make a move into new circles or gain privy to new worlds. Have faith the first third of the month, then you’ll more likely see what’s fulfilling and successful.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): More than one opportunity is being considered and they all make you happy! You get to have fun experiences that represent an entree into new circles–the world rejoices in you and you are invited to participate! This month’s activities lead to greater developments. Choose to pursue the bigger dreams, they have the best chance.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You’re feeling a lot better about your position in life, and have peace of mind that recent accomplishments will further you…you’re moving up! There will soon be a sense of triumph in September if there isn’t yet..for some it may have already come. You’re due for a good turn, and it’s best to dream big. Be willing to make sacrifices for what you want, understanding: “...in the interest of X, I must do Y.”
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): True riches: you’re happier now, you’re grinning again, you’ve learned alot about what you do hold, and what to hold, dear. Let a renewed enthusiasm for life pour out in all you do. There’s no need to participate in deals or activity you don’t feel like doing or no longer believe in. You’re looking for just the right venue..trust your heart about what to put your energy into. The best thing to do must be felt, not reasoned.
