WEEKLY HOROSCOPES ~ August 25-31, 2014 ~ by Beverley Taylor

green shade tree - Dragana Biočanin


A little more planetary movement this week, as the Sun moved into Virgo on Sunday, but apart from the Moon’s natural progress, the rest of the planets stay where they are at present, just moving by a few degrees. Next week, both Mercury and Venus move signs, but this week is fairly ‘quiet’ astrologically. As I mentioned, the Sun is now in modest, organized, modest, particular Virgo, this can make us a bit finicky at times, as we naturally want everything to be just right.

The Moon starts the week in domineering, exuberant, melodramatic Leo, with a Full Moon on Monday, making us more over-the-top in certain situations. On Tuesday it moves into responsive, inquisitive, logical Virgo. On Thursday the Moon moves into charming, harmonious, peaceful Libra. On Sunday it moves into determined, jealous, strong-willed, Scorpio, finishing the week there.

Mercury remains in balanced, decisive, fussy Virgo, this week, with a methodical, structured and detailed approach.

Venus remains in loving, expressive & excessive Leo, for this week, with possible overly dramatic reactions.

Mars remains in compulsive, envious, responsive, resourceful Scorpio, until the middle of next month, with a need for personal control over people and situations. Jupiter is now approximately one third of the way through benevolent, extrovert, positive, expansive Leo, making us kind-hearted.

Saturn remains in responsible, shrewd, strong-willed Scorpio, until the end of 2014. It is now traveling Direct, enabling self expansion in some respects. Uranus remains in assertive, blunt, energetic, self-willed Aries, for several years, and can make us individualistic and rebellious, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us, or help us see things differently.

Uranus is currently travelling Retrograde until shortly before Christmas, helping us come up with ingenious ideas, with a need to use them creatively. Neptune remains in sensitive, intuitive Pisces for the foreseeable future, and helps us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, and build understanding, in a wide variety of ways, but also indicates a need to remain realistic.

Neptune is now traveling Retrograde until Mid December, indicating boundaries between reality and illusion may blur at times, causing possible confusion, with a need to look at people and situations realistically.

Pluto remains in Capricorn for quite a few years, so is a very long term influence, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. Pluto travels Retrograde until late September, with a relentless search for inner truth, furthering our self knowledge approached the right way.

Meditation ~ New Moon in Virgo

Aloha Family of Light !

As we step into this next  beautiful integration phase of  the Astrological sign turning towards Virgo,  we also welcome a powerful Manifestation New Moon cycle full of magic and promise.

We discover the essential task of Virgo in uniting our body, mind and spirit so that we become who we incarnated to be. This gives birth to our own savior–our inner Spirit,  integrating through self-knowledge–knowing who we are and who we are not. It has a lot to do with self-acceptance as well gifting love and complete acceptance of who we are.


Virgo asks us to give that love and acceptance to ourselves, instead of patriarchy’s twisting of Virgo’s gift into self-criticism and impossible perfectionism.

A deep awakening of the energy coursing within our cellular memories the foundation and make-up of our divine temples of the body unearth the currents of magic that ebb and flow along in tune with the moon’s rhythm. As we combine this powerful force uniting them as one we co-create positive change and transform your life through the mysteries of the new moon.

But exceedingly difficult to do

The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom,
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita

I Ching ~ Week of August 25, 2014

SHENG#46         Sheng        Ascending


Above:     Kun           center of the Earth; the yin element supporting all things; responsiveness.

Below:      Sun           root, foundation; subtle penetration, like the wind; small, steady effort.

The Wisdom:

You are in a time of ascension
What you have been working for is on the way
Now simply be present
Be mindful of where you stand

This is your season of harvesting. Your harvest, in this case, consists of the ripe fruits of small and steady efforts. You have been paying attention to all the details, remaining steadfast to the principles of working for the greater good, and until now it seemed as if the fruits of your efforts have been elusive. Try as you know you must, to not have expectations, it is difficult not to have them. You have had expectations, which you have tried your best to quiet, of how your diligence would bring about a desired outcome. In your present situation your expectations are about to be humbled by the good fortune that is coming your way.

This is an excellent time to make the moves you have been holding in check, feeling that either the timing was not right or that those with influence and authority would not be receptive. Leave all worries behind.

It has seemed that in so many ways all the work and waiting have been interminable. But that was only your analytical mind interfering with the universal law of right timing. Patience and quiet nurturing are all that is needed now, whether in your relationship to your own inner self or in your projects, external relationships, and your connection with the Earth herself.

It is happening; no need to push it. What you have desired is coming your way. Don’t ask when—just take a look . . . it is now. Trust and faith is the powerful engine that will propel you forward in your quest for what is right and in harmony with the natural way of being.

.Quiet your heart and mind.
Allow the natural way to unfold.
 Be steady and don’t miss a step;
Progress and prosperity are assured.

All things that you have worked and wished for in life are moving forward, toward yours and the greater good. It is as if you are exactly synchronized with the calendar of your life path. The energies of the Earth and the universe are moving in harmony with you, with your actions and desires. Your intuition is at an extremely high level. Trust it and make your well-considered moves, whether in love, business, or in the care of our planet and all her beings. Bring all together and be the giver of love and life to your tribe, your family and your relationships.

Note well that while you may harvest the bounty that is available to you now, the benefit will be to return this energy in equal measure to the living organism of Gaia to which you are deeply rooted. This is your “family,” which has silently and elegantly supported and nurtured you so that you could get to this point of beneficial harvest. Keep feeding the whole, the oneness of which we are each a part.

Have confidence that you have done your work, that you have correctly nurtured yourself, your relationships, your tribe, or your project to this point. Have faith that your growth is assured if you allow everything to unfold without the judgment or interference of the critical, analytical mind. Refrain from picking things apart and just let the mind relax in its own vast, natural spaciousness.

This hexagram signals that your personal magic could not be at a higher and more powerful point. Your ideas will be well received by those around you. Externally, you will advance in your relationships and your career, and your words will be heard. You are part of a network that is connecting all good things for the benefit of yourself, your tribe, and the world.

Stay steady and remain humble. Meditate and take part in activities that keep you centered and grounded. By adhering to the higher laws, those of compassion, kindness, and integrity, what you will gain will remain, and any doubts about yourself will wash away like dust after a longed-for spring rain.

This week speak to the elements. Listen to the wind as it speaks to you, hear the waters as they nurture and teach you, celebrate fire as it burns away the dross. Taste of the Earth herself as she nurtures all sentient beings, and wear the air on your skin like a royal robe of ritual and celebration.

HERBALOGY — Evening Primrose Oil for PMS, diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, and more

primrosesA native North American wildflower, evening primrose is commonly called “evening star” because its bright yellow flowers open at dusk. It’s a favorite with herb and native plant gardeners and can grow up to 4 feet or 5 feet tall. The seeds are a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid with wide-ranging health benefits.

Native Americans valued evening primrose both as a food and a medicine. They applied a poultice made from the plant to bruises to relieve swelling and made a tea from the root to ease coughs. European settlers took their cue from native peoples, using evening primrose to treat wounds, coughs, sore throats, and digestive upsets. In the 1980s, evening primrose soared in popularity when researchers discovered that its seeds are a gold mine of GLA, a compound rarely found in plants.

Evening primrose oil (EPO) is used to treat a variety of health problems caused by a deficiency in essential fatty acids. These include premenstrual syndrome (PMS), fibrocystic breast pain, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetic neuropathy. Other conditions that evening primrose may help treat include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, attention deficit disorder, and ulcerative colitis.

GLA is essential for the production of prostaglandins, hormonelike compounds that influence almost every bodily system. Prostaglandins decrease inflammation, stimulate hormone production, and help regulate blood clotting, blood pressure, and PMS-related water retention. If the body is working properly, it converts omega-6 fatty acids (found in vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds) into GLA. But many factors can inhibit this conversion, including advancing age; a diet compromised by excessive saturated fats, trans fats, or alcohol; zinc deficiency; and some medical disorders, such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer. Evening primrose oil supplies a direct source of GLA to the body, bypassing the need for conversion of omega-6s and helping to restore healthy levels of prostaglandins

In colonial America, evening primrose seeds were often substituted for poppy seeds in baking. More compelling is research supporting the use of evening primrose oil for diabetic neuropathy, a common complication of long-term diabetes that causes nerve damage in the legs, feet, arms, and hands. One double-blind study evaluated 111 people with diabetes for one year who were given either 480 mg of GLA daily or a placebo. The researchers found that those given GLA experienced significant improvement in neurological symptoms (Diabetes Care, 1993, vol. 16, no. 9).

GLA also has shown promise as an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, a painful and disfiguring type of inflammatory arthritis. In a 1996 study, researchers gave 56 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis GLA supplements or a placebo. After six months of treatment, participants taking GLA experienced reduced arthritic symptoms (Arthritis and Rheumatism, 1996, vol. 39, no. 11).

Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime

Under the protection of the Creator, no harm can come to me

Chanting the Lord’s name, Har, Har, my mistakes are washed away

Whomsoever bathes in the nectar tank is acclaimed all over the world;

The desires of that person’s mind are fulfilled

Bathing (in this sacredness) the mind becomes peaceful, as it meditates on God

Those who bathe here, they liberate and bless themselves and all their generations

Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime

One who bathes in the pool of the Saints achieves the state of supreme bliss

There is no death, there is no coming and going;

There is only meditating on the name of the Lord, Har, Har

He alone knows the wisdom of the Lord, on whom this Lord extends merciful kindness

Baba Nanak seeks the sanctuary of God; All his cares and worries are dispelled

Those who bathe here, they liberate and bless themselves and all their generations

Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime

Seminary ~ Exercise ~ The Secret of Remote Viewing and Astral Projection

astral OBE
Imagine going on vacation to Greece. You are staying in a stunning white villa overlooking the crystal blue waters of the sea … The sun is reflecting on the water and sparkling like diamonds.

What if you could check out your vacation spot (and not with brochures or old photos) before booking your trip …

If you are skilled in Astral Projection or Remote Viewing, you do exactly that and much, much more.

When you practice Remote Viewing, you can see your target as clearly as you see these words…

So what is the secret to achieving vivid clarity and detail?

Practice visualization.

It sounds really simple, but spending just a few minutes each day on this practice will train your brain to bring back
more detail, color and clarity every time you remote view or project to a target.

Start with a memory.

Imagine the last time you ate an orange.

See the orange in your mind. See how bright the color is, the dimples in the skin of the orange, fell the texture and
the weight of it in your hand. Peel the skin back. Hear the sound it makes and smell the citrus of the fruit. Make
every detail as bright and vivid as possible.

This may be difficult at first and you may not be able to hold all of the details in you mind. But as you practice, you will
find that it becomes easier and your visualizations will become brighter and your mind will hold more details at
one time.

Move on to other memories. Visualize a room in your house or a place that you have been. What does it smell like? What
types of sounds are in the vicinity? How does the room feel in contrast to your current location? Take in all the details. Go
back to the area you practiced on if possible and see what you missed.

Your consciousness will begin to extend beyond the boundaries of your physical body to absorb this data.

Try it out!  We think you will be amazed at the difference this will make when you go back to practice remote viewing and astral

We can’t wait to hear about your experiences with this technique!

Find a song that expresses how you feel about a loved one and share that song with them.

We all have a story.  When we listen, and listen well enough to take our  words and turn them into art, and sing it back to those with whom we interact, something happens. Alchemy through heightened communication … the spark of creative innovation … and it’s powerful.

“Music is what feelings sound like.”  — Georgia Cates
