Amimal Totem Energy For the Week of Aug. 29 - Sept. 4
Peacock comes this week to help us address issues concerning the cycles of death and rebirth, because down through the centuries, peacock has had close associations with the phoenix, symbol of extinction and regeneration. This week will see the removal of some circumstances, people and things that no longer serve our well-being, growth and evolution. We may not know what will replace that which is taken away, but whatever comes, it will be for our benefit. Avoid melodrama,which will be very tempting at this time, as it can only interfere with the evolutionary process in which we are engaged. There will be choices to make especially concerning our belief systems and ideologies, whether political, spiritual, moral, academic or other purely mental constructs by which we govern our lives. Peacock's voice is very discordant to some ears, so take a lesson from this and don't try to convert others to your way of thinking by shouting louder than anyone else. Remember, everyone is under this influence at this time, so talking louder may not get your message across after all. Whatever comes, the phoenix will always rise from the ashes, so let go, release with grace what is no longer part of your soul's path, even if there is pain, for new energy and life will rush in to take the place of the old.

Pallas Athena & Juno Help Us Until the End of the Year

While Saturn & Pluto still present us with turning points and challenge all of our relationships, Pallas Athena, the asteroid of wisdom, healing and the arts, and Juno, the asteroid of intimate partnerships, square each other and help us focus in more detail on our deepest and dearest soul relationships. These two asteroids are influencing us now and will continue to do so through the end of this year, which will help to galvanize us in finding ways of creating more love and harmony, greater communication and understanding. Be adventurous and novel in your approach to change and transformation now. Strengthen your purpose and intent to grow within; challenge the status quo, learn from it and chart new territory. Feel the magnificence of how your inner growth facilitates what you'd like to have manifest on the outside. Seek novel ways of saying 'I love you,' sending heartfelt blessings, acts of kindness and compassion to your very special loved one. All of these efforts at deepening your connections give gifts of feeling renewed, invigorated and recommitted to love at the core of your being. That smile of understanding and knowing will follow you everywhere, and others will benefit from your loving radiance. All your other relationships benefit from your enhanced state of being and feeling. Let the music begin.

Animal Totem Energy for the Week of Aug. 22

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Horse has come to guide us through this week. Power, stamina, strength & balance will be the watchwords for this time, as we are asked to stand fast & refuse to run away from those things that may frighten us. Just as horse might carry a deep fear of cougar or wolf suddenly coming out of the woods & threatening her, so we must be aware of the things that we fear most deeply. Most of what frightens us, whether it be financial, physical or spiritual, will never happen. These things live primarily in our minds, but we can give them life if we focus upon them with powerfully fearful images. So, this week focus instead on the most illuminated & joyous outcomes you can possibly manifest; see yourself in strength, in power & in serenity. Horse instills in us, as well, the balance & stamina to carry on through long-term situations that will tax our reserves, & which may make us feel like giving in to fatigue, or threaten to dishearten us to the point where we will just want to give up. Meditate on the power of Horse, & draw endurance from her. Horse also loves community, so go to your friends, family & loved ones for shelter & nourishing companionship.
Blessings For the Week, Val

Tom Says Saturn & Vesta Are Affecting You Now

Vesta, the asteroid of hearth, home & service, entered Libra August 9th to influence Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus & Pluto for about the next month, so re-balancing, re-energizing, revitalizing, reestablishing, recommitting & restructuring fit well energetically now. Do you feel the urge to check in with your partner and family relationships? Is Aunt Betsy or Grandpapa Michael calling for you? Or is it time to be alone with your loved one, hide out and have fun? How about a quiet retreat used for resting, journaling and meditating without any should's, oughts or have-tos. How about renting that epic movie or mini series and firing up the popcorn maker while you both enjoy time vegging out. Or, is it the time to set a preliminary course for having some major fun; something exciting, or that out-0f-the-box experience or journey you've thought about for so long. Revisiting an unresolved relationship issue in order to deepen your love and understanding, spending time to find a solution to an old problem, or volunteering at your favorite animal shelter would also find energy with these astrological influences. Whatever it is, be passionate and free thinking about it. For Aug. 19th, 21st and the 27th, along with the 3rd and 9th of Sept., be vigilant about your time, feelings and commitments. Work easy and take extra downtime.
May this help you on your journey.
