Daily OM for Monday, May 9 – Ascension

Spiritualizing the Planet

As we ascend, we gain consciousness of the more subtle aspects of our being and begin to connect with all that is. 

We are one with the cosmos whether we realize it or not. Realizing it, though, quickens our spiritual energy and allows us access to higher realms. In those higher realms lies the awareness that we are more than just finite physical beings living one life in one place at one point in time. Connecting with this awareness is to awaken to the truth and take a step forward, and upward, on our soul’s journey. This upward movement is known as ascension because the more we remember who we are and embody that truth, the higher our energy vibrates; we ascend up the scale from the gross physical plane to the subtle spiritual plane. As we ascend, we gain consciousness of the more subtle aspects of our being, with the ultimate outcome being a complete identification with the light body, an experience of unification with the cosmos.

As you look around you, you will see that many people are not even interested in these ideas. Others are open and paying attention. Still others have devoted their lives to deepening their understanding of the truth. All these people are on the path of ascension, but they will ascend at different rates. Each soul chooses its own path. The more devoted a person is to remembering and being guided by spirit, the more quickly the soul will ascend. These people are at the forefront of an important process of raising the energetic vibration of the whole planet. The earth, made of the same energy we are, is undergoing this shift along with us. This evolutionary process, while seemingly chaotic at times, is as natural as the process that unfolds a flower from a seed and we are all part of it.

It shouldn’t be forgotten that the earth too is on her own ascension path as she is sentient. The best way to support this process in yourself and in the world is simply to relax and be open to its unfolding. Listen to your inner guidance, and let it guide you to the path that brings your heart the most joy.

Let’s Walk Together

Let’s Walk Together

Let’s walk on the path together
Hand in hand, some memories to gather
Let’s walk through the rest together

Some hilly curves to climb, some downhill to go
Sometimes roads will have arid leaves, at times covered with snow
But the basket of love will embrace it all, no matter
Let’s walk through the rest together

Some clouds of doubt may hover; a rain of obstacle may fall in
The draught of relief may come, when tough period calls in
But the rock of our trust will flout all these weathers
Let’s walk through the rest together

Our love is so strong; it can stand any pain
It’s caress so soothing; want to have it all over again
It’s passion, it’s charisma, it’s craving,… feels like ether
Let’s walk through the rest together
Let’s walk through the rest together

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for May 9th is 13: Fellowship

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

13: Fellowship

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Hexagram 13
General Meaning: Fellowship. When communal bonds unite people, great success is possible. But such bonds can develop only when personal interests are subordinated to goals that serve the greater good of all. The broader the basis for action, the greater the benefits that can be achieved. And conversely, the greater the potential good, the more powerful the support behind it. A spirit of cooperation steadies the boat, but it helps to have a beautiful island to row towards.

Learn to respect the strength in diversity, for a community’s true power lies not in its numbers, but in the diverse skills and resources of its members. Just as the stoutest walls are reinforced with many different materials, so the strongest groups allow differences to co-exist inside the whole.

With a unified group solidly behind you, even difficult enterprises can be attempted without great risk.

Today’s Tarot Card for May 9th is Strength

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:



This Tarot Deck: Goddess

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Strength card represents Nature which, however wild in its primal form, is tamed by our subtler, finer (feminine, interior) self. The will and passion of our instinctive nature does not need to be broken, but refined and brought to consciousness — so that all levels of Creation, inner and outer, may come into harmony.

The feminine soul-force contains a persuasive power that can nurture and induce cooperation from others, stilling disruptive energies by harmonizing differences in the spirit of collective good will.

Daily Horoscopes for Monday, May 9th


General Daily Horoscope


Heat is added to the five planets already in reckless Aries with the Moon’s shift into fiery Leo at 5:35 am. Additionally, friendly Venus conjuncts chatty Mercury in Aries, provoking us to talk about what we want in a very direct manner. Normally, this action-packed combo would push unspoken secrets out into the open. But mystery prevails as Mercury and Venus form otherworldly septiles with mystical Neptune, emphasizing the magic of the unknown.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although Monday means back to work for many, playtime is still on your mind today and you might mislead yourself into thinking that you can escape your responsibilities. Unfortunately, it may be difficult to get any wind in your sails, so don’t be intent on reaching your destination immediately. If you are too eager, your frustration could quickly become problematic. Consciously slow down, instead; enjoy your experiences as you flow in the prevailing currents.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your obsession with one of your creative fantasies won’t likely become a problem today if you can separate fact from fiction. Make use of your imagination to dream about the life that you want to live. Fill in the details of your vision, but don’t share them with anyone else just yet. Allow the process to develop naturally on its own without focusing too much on the outcome.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may feel as if the day is unfolding like an episode of ‘The Twilight Zone.’ It’s challenging to tell where your strange dreams turn into reality. You would prefer being in control now, but the harder you try to keep things from falling apart, the worse it gets. Nevertheless, you may want to prove your competence by making a dramatic gesture. Fortunately, you might just pull off this grand illusion as long as you don’t start believing your own hype.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your mood lightens today once the Moon leaves your sign to zoom into fun-loving and lively Leo. But you may still try to cling to unresolved emotions from the past. Attempts to communicate your feelings could keep you spinning in an endless loop. Don’t rely on logic now; act in the moment without worrying too much about the consequences.


Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The Moon returns to melodramatic Leo today, tempting you to demonstrate your feelings openly. Luckily, you don’t expect anything in return for your performance because the feedback you receive now probably won’t be too helpful, anyway. Unfortunately, no one seems to have a clear sense of your intentions. Stay true to yourself and honor your own feelings more than everyone else’s.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You may attempt to let loose today, even if you can’t afford to flirt with the edge. The problem is that you must stay singularly focused on your responsibilities over the next week. Unfortunately, your normal powers of analysis could leave you cold because you cannot make sense of what’s happening now. Thankfully, things become less complex once you acknowledge that you don’t even know the part you are playing, let alone the script.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are being challenged to find a workable balance between your desire to hang out with your friends and the need to handle other more pressing responsibilities. You would rather ignore the limitations that stern Saturn continues to place on you, but there’s no easy way to avoid your current obligations. Nevertheless, you’re not that willing to write off your social life. Thankfully, you can get a lot accomplished in a short amount of time now, allowing you to enjoy yourself later in the day.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The dramatic Leo Moon draws you into the spotlight while enabling you to feel good about the recognition. You are usually adept at hiding your needs, but today you might just put them out there for all to see. However, even when you tell it like it is, there’s still mystery around your motivation. Others want to know what’s going on beneath the surface and they won’t be fully satisfied until they do. Remember, it’s not your responsibility to address their issues by saying any more than is necessary.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Today’s showy Leo Moon connects with your own expressive nature, happily creating a successful formula for you. However, you can’t get away with a lot now and you may have to work extra hard to meet your obligations. Others around you might have unrealistic expectations because they are seeking a leader and are unclear as to your current intentions. Take the time to be meticulous when explaining your plans to everyone else.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Life seems overly complicated, especially if you’re eager to swing into action and do something exciting today. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to act on your own now. There may be a complex thread of interrelationships that prevents you from saying too much about anyone else. It’s wise to temporarily acquiesce to someone else’s authority, so keep your feelings to yourself for a while longer.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Others may not understand or appreciate your strange behavior today and your dance could become one of avoiding the truth. But even your most direct approach could get lost in your foggy mental landscape. Your friends might believe that you are being contentious now, but you’re not. Remember, you can still play well with others even if you’re marching to a different drummer.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You want to demonstrate your compassion, but your actions might miss the mark today. Thankfully, it’s not that your aim is wrong; it’s more about your lack of certainty. You may even feel as if you’ve been blindfolded and led on a wild goose chase. There’s no need for grandiose gestures; it’s the small acts of kindness that everyone will remember the most
