‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for June 7th

By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

We are all aware of the emotional effect color creates. And for this reason we choose colors that please the eye by first pleasing the inner emotions. Certain colors have the same effect on many, while other colors affect each of us individually and in particular ways.

Red has an exciting effect; green is cool serenity, orange is the color of vivacity, and brown tones are restful earthy colors. People dress to enhance their appearances with certain colors. Homes are decorated and offices are planned to create pleasance surroundings.

And we as individuals possess moods of many colors. Yet, we are far more careless about the color of that mood, letting the attitudes and colors of others dictate to us how we are to behave. If we could remember when we meet people whose moods are black to remind ourselves that their moods are their own, there would be less involvement in the emotions of others.

We are so vividly aware of color, we must not be reckless in recognizing the color scheme within our own personality. Whether it is a vibrant color, sophisticated, or bright and witty, color always works its subtle magic.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day June 7

“If there is a shadow of a doubt someplace, that will cause a weakness.”
–Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
In the Spiritual World there is a spiritual Law. The Law says like attracts like. This means whatever mental picture we hold inside our minds we will attract from the Universe. To make this Law work we must maintain a constant picture. If we picture or vision something, and along with this picture we have doubting thoughts, our vision will not happen and we will get EXACTLY what we picture or vision. The Law always works. A doubting vision will not materialize what we want. A vision without doubt will always happen. This is a spiritual Law.
My Maker, today, let my vision become strong.

June 7 – Daily Feast

Confession may be good for the soul, but it seldom makes the one that heard it feel good. The nee to clear the air or get something out in the open can cause a bigger rift than the reason for confessing in the first place. Words cannot be retrieved once they are spoken. They are gone and calling them back is impossible. Some weigh on people’s hearts like hi lv s gi nv ya, many stones or heavy rock. Some are flung, like di ga it s di, a spear, to wound. And most should never have been spoken. Life and death are in the use of words. If we feel the need to confess something, we should do it where the listener knows how to handle what we say. It is an unthinking person that needs to be relieved of a burden to the point of putting it on someone who may find it hard to bear.
~ He knew his words were bad; he trembled like the oak whose roots have been wasted by many rains. ~

Daily Motivator for June 7th – Disappointments of the past

What has already happened before is not what will happen next. Because right  now, you have the opportunity to change direction.

If you’re moving in a positive and fruitful direction, you can choose to keep  going that way, and even to accelerate your progress. Or, if you’ve experienced  difficulty and disappointment in the past, this is your time to make a  change.

When you focus on what’s already happened, it can be easy to feel permanently  stuck in a bad place. So focus instead on the fact that you can, right now,  choose a more positive direction.

Today is a new day, and it is your day to live in the best way you can  imagine. It is your day to move in precisely the direction you choose.

Though rising above a difficult past will require great effort and commitment  on your part, you certainly can do it. And there’s no better way to spend your  time than making your way forward and permanently locking your disappointments  in the past.

The disappointments of the past will begin to fade away as soon as you let go  of them. Let go, look forward, and know that you can make this next day the best  one yet.

— Ralph Marston

Daily OM for June 7th – Life Packaging

 

The Gift Inside

by Madisyn Taylor

We are all spiritual beings living in a human body even though our packaging seems different, we are very much the same.


We have all had the experience of encountering someone whose life seems so completely different from ours that we can almost imagine we have nothing in common. However, if we go deeper into observing, we will see that we all have the same things going on in our lives. It is as if our different lives are in essence the same gift, wrapped in an infinite variety of containers, wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. Everybody experiences loss, grief, happiness, excitement, anger, and fear. Everyone can have money issues of one kind or another, and everyone struggles with difficult choices.  Our lives show up differently for each one of us because we each learn in different ways. One person may need to learn the value of money by having too little of it, while another may need to learn by having more than enough. We each learn about work and love, with experiences that are tailored to our particular perspective. Even as it appears that some people have it easy while others are in a continual state of struggle, the truth is that we are all learning, and it is very difficult to tell, when looking only at the exterior of a person, what’s going on inside.  This is one of the many things that can be so valuable about cultivating relationships with people from all walks of life. As we get to know those who seem so different from us, we get to really see how much of life’s challenges and joys are universal. We begin to look beyond the packaging of skin color, clothing preferences, and socioeconomic differences, hairstyles, and the cars we drive to the heart of the human experience. It is important to honor and value the differences in our packaging, but it is just as important to honor the gift of life inside each one of us, and the fact that, no matter how different the packaging, the gift inside is the same.

Based On The Hymn To Ishtar From Acadia

Lord of sun and lady moon Bright at night and bright at noon See my offering, hear my call Lord and lady guard us all.

Sky god an, earth goddess ki All do honor unto thee Spread your seed upon the ground Bring forth life fecund and round

Holy queen of living things She whose bloom the summer brings Bless us lady give us cheer As we wander through the year

Royal shepherd, mountain king Lofty bull of whom we sing Fill our bowls with waters sweet Spread the seeds of corn and wheat

Bless our lips and bless our breast Guide us gently to our rest Bless our sheep and bless our corn Ease our grief when we must mourn

Sing the song and join the rite Praise the day and bless the night Thank the gods for what they bear Earth and water, fire and air.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for June 7 – Hey, It’s ‘National Chocolate Ice Cream Day’

Today’s rich and creamy energies come courtesy of ‘National Chocolate Ice Cream Day.’ While it’s not known who exactly invented ice cream, the credit sometimes goes to Macedonian king Alexander the Great. In fact, there was a chilled jellied dessert called macedoine that now serves as the original recipe. Marco Polo brought a recipe for a sherbet-like delight to Italy upon his return from Asia. According to Feng Shui, the different flavors of ice cream can determine the magical effect it can have on whoever eats it. For example, blueberry ice cream is believed to bestow protection from things that go bump in the night. Butter pecan is thought to bring money, while cherry vanilla is said to attract sweet love. But only chocolate ice cream can flavor your life with love, money and protective powers. Sometime today, indulge in a big bowl of powerful protection, delicious abundance and yummy love. If you want a little more of that last one, remember to put a cherry on top! Now that’s some just desserts!

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for June 7th is 5: Patience

5: Patience

Hexagram 5

General Meaning:  A fisherman can cast the line, but he can only wait for the fish to bite. Your catch will come in its own time; you cannot make it hurry to you — neither by working, nor by planning, nor by wishing. You may need to provide nourishment or support for others; but only through patience can you become the bridge between the fickle fish and the eventual feast. Strength in a time of trial waits quietly, resolutely. Weakness grows agitated, and abandons the effort before the fish bites. Periods of waiting are most fruitful when used for quiet contemplation.

Proceed cautiously, but resolutely, with whatever you are doing. The time and situation are calling for consistency and patience. Waiting is an essential skill; patience is a powerful force. Good timing is an ally of those with inner strength — the kind of strength that allows you to be uncompromisingly honest with yourself, while sticking to the path you have charted. If you persevere with a positive attitude, time weakens even the hardest obstacles. To rush anything, or impatiently force results, stimulates resistance and causes setbacks. At best, you achieve surface changes — the kind that can just as quickly be reversed. Steadfast waiting — while holding to your integrity leads to slow but permanent improvements. In the end, you accomplish something great. Practice patience.

Today’s Runes for Thursday, June 7th is Eoh

Gold Runes are most commonly used for questions about business, career, and property. Eoh refers to the Yew tree. The Yew does not go dormant and therefore represents endurance. Even the wood of the tree is strong, resilient, and pliable – the Yew bends, but does not break. The evergreen nature of the Yew is present even in the rune itself, as it cannot be changed even by reversal. This rune is historically symbolic of death, but, as in the Tarot and as suggested by the nature of the Yew tree itself, death is seen only as a transmutation of something eternal and unchanging – the spirit.

Today’s Tarot Card for June 7th is Judgment

Judgment

 

This Tarot Deck: Medieval Cat

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Judgement card, sometimes entitled Resurrection, represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken Home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the World is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.

From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.

In personal terms, the Judgment cards points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.

Your Daily General Horoscopes for June 7th

Aries

During yesterday’s very rare Venus eclipse the planet of love crossed over the face of the Sun in your communication sector, revealing all the feelings and words your heart needs to express. With Mercury, planet of communication leaving your communication sector today, but not before helping you to find your voice, do what you can to ensure that the communication lines remain open, with a new sense of authenticity possible.

Taurus

Just a day after the Sun and Venus aligned to form a very rare Venus eclipse in your income sector Mercury moves on, leaving you with the smart head for money that allows you to manage what has been a dramatic few days on the money front. Having had a lunar eclipse in your financial sector and a Venus eclipse in your income sector within 2 days of each other has brought most things to a head.

Gemini

Having the Moon in your financial sector as Mercury returns to your income sector is giving you both an advantage and a disadvantage. On one hand this ensures that your financial instincts are sharp as a smart head for money kicks in, but this also puts them in opposition, creating some financial tension. Yet even then this creates some timely wake up calls, as your income situation gets its first planetary support for the year.

Cancer

Even though there is a lot of internal focus at the moment, with an abundance of planetary forces in an internally focused part of your chart, this has created an opportunity for some inner discovery that could be life changing. With Jupiter, planet of luck getting involved next week, this isn’t something you should fight and should instead embrace it, especially as this gives you a chance to transform your world from the inside out.

Leo

The Moon has returned to your work sector for one last visit before Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion leaves your career sector in just 5 days time. When Jupiter leaves your career sector next week Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector, will be the only planet active on the professional front, with the Moon giving you a chance today to tap into the very forces that will keep your professional year on track. Trust your hunches and your professional instincts.

Virgo

When Venus travelled across the face of the Sun in your career sector yesterday, in a rare Venus eclipse, it put your professional desires and reality on the same page, allowing you to see what you want, where things stand and what’s possible. With Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion just 6 days away from your career sector, you’re starting to wake up to the fact that things have changed and the roll that you’re now on.

Libra

Hold onto a sense of adventure, a sense of curiosity and an awareness of how many options life has, for despite the fact that new doors are about to open on the career front and life does go on, this feeling is here to stay. Something has shifted and it’s no longer okay to simply go through the motions, with the more you wake up to what you’ve been missing out on, the less willing you’ll be to remain sitting on life’s sidelines.

Scorpio

Over the last few days you’ve experienced a lunar eclipse in your income sector and an even rarer Venus eclipse in your financial sector, bringing all sides of your money game to a head. As Mercury wraps up his short visit to your financial sector he’s working to leave you with the smart head for money needed to work with the financial forces this has unleashed. While the stars incline they don’t control, with a need to take your power back.

Sagittarius

It’s clear that the relationship forces in play are not only evolving but that there are some real shifts taking place. Just 3 days ago a lunar eclipse brought some real wake up calls while a Venus eclipse yesterday saw the planet of love step in and take control. With even more shifts ahead, but with the planet of luck about to get involved, there’s a need to trust that the love gods are on your side. What is essential is having the communication lines open.

Capricorn

All of a sudden things have become a lot clearer on the work front, as you start to realise just how many options you have. It’s in his final hours in your work sector that Mercury is giving you the intellectual savvy to make some smart choices, decisions and plans and to work smarter. This is very much an evolving situation, with some major shifts over the coming days, with a need to have a game plan flexible enough to allow for this.

Aquarius

What makes it easy to tap into the playful and romantic energies in play at the moment, making heart lead themes so dominant, is that you have no planetary influence in either of your professional houses and haven’t all year. However, that’s about to change and as the doors get ready to open on the work front there’s an urgent need to find a balance between work and play. For where you’re going playful and professional forces will both dominate.

Pisces

If it’s starting to feel like you’re at the bottom of your own priority list and you’re starting to wonder when it’s going to be your turn, the answer is now. There is a shift today that might not be felt at the time but will over the coming days, as the heavens finally get around to paying a playful, romantic and fun focused part of your chart some attention. If life has become too serious of late, the change comes from a shift in mental focus.

Your Daily Career Horoscopes for June 7th

Aries

The Moon’s position in your career sector and the professional instincts this sharpens are not only of use on the income and work fronts, where you’re able to make some real progress, but in warding off any potential problems. With work/life balance issues more likely to come to a head over the next few weeks, nip as many in the bud as possible.

Taurus

Whether it comes to reviewing where you’ve been or looking ahead to your professional objectives for the rest of the year, do so with an open mind and one that reminds you that it’s all about the journey. The road to success is always under construction and a sense of hindsight is always revealing how things could be improved.

Gemini

While forces on the career front take a back seat and while you wait for the new next wave of planetary activity to kick in on the work front, you have a chance to focus more on the money. You’re at the brink of the 3 most active  income months of the year, with a chance now to start asking where the money is.

Cancer

If a lunar eclipse in your work sector 3 days ago brought things to a head on the work front, then it’s a slow and sustained professional pressure that is going to ensure there is no going back. This isn’t the kind of pressure that creates debilitating stress, rather the kind that pushes you to raise the bar and tap into your fighting spirit.

Leo

The timing of the Moon’s monthly visit to your work sector is spot on, for it comes just as some work pressure is starting to develop and just 5 days before lucky Jupiter is due to leave your career sector. This allows you to see through any pressure or urgency, allowing you to remain on your toes without sweating the small stuff.

Virgo

During yesterday’s Venus eclipse in your career sector the genie was let out of the bottle and there is no putting it back in, having revealed in all its bold statements and glaring reality exactly what you want, where things actually stand and the gulf between the two. This may have left you with a daunting task, but it’s one that you have to believe can be accomplished.

Libra

While things are settling down on the work front and you now have a chance to work behind the scenes, new doors are about to open on the career front, with a new wave on its way. With things about to heat up take a proactive approach to dealing with any work/life balance issues, taking a smart approach before anything is forced on you.

Scorpio

It’s from today that Uranus, on his own in your work sector and due to turn retrograde next month and therefore should be taking a more background role, starts to come back out of the shadows. It’s pressure from Pluto that is making it hard for things to settle down on the work front, with your mind and the laws of synchronicity just too active.

Sagittarius

At what is a critical time on both the career and work fronts, the Moon makes a timely return to your income sector, giving you a nose for money and some timely wake up calls. At a time when you’re defining your path forward on both the work and career fronts knowing where the money is, is a key element.

Capricorn

Yesterday’s Venus eclipse in your work sector is likely to have created some bittersweet feelings, for it exposed the depths of your true desires, some stark realities and the distance between the two. Had this been any ordinary year this might have been a problem, but with lucky Jupiter on his way no divide is too wide to bridge.

Aquarius

While your day will begin like any other day so far this year, with no planetary activity in either of your professional houses, it won’t stay that way. It’s Mercury’s return to your work sector that will kick off an active 3 months on the work front and the start of a wave of professional momentum that will eventually become game changing.

Pisces

With the Moon gone from your career sector things are settling back down on the career front, but having come to a head the genie is now out of the bottle and there is no putting it back in. Whatever is out in the open or has come to a head needs to stay that way with a need to now do what you can, with what you’ve got, from where you’re at.

The Daily Love & Romance Horoscopes for June 7th

Aries

In his final hours in your communication sector Mercury, planet of communication is working to ensure that the communication lines are open, especially on the relationship front. With some of the best romantic and relationship conditions of the year still in front of you, communication has become more important than ever.

Taurus

Love not only needs to be taken as a journey but one without a roadmap, where it’s more about the journey itself than the destination. It’s not about taking the wrong path, especially as it’s on those dead ends or paths that simply loop around to where you started that you’re likely to learn the most.

Gemini

Over the course of the last 3 days you’ve experienced a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector and a rare Venus eclipse in your sign, with the planet of love bringing some old buried or suppressed feelings and desires to a head. With the door still open to second chances on the romantic front any wake up calls have come just in time.

Cancer

During the Moon’s monthly visit to your relationship sector he wouldn’t be doing his job if this didn’t push some buttons and evoke some strong emotional responses, but chances are these are a lot stronger today. Find a balance between not sweating the small stuff and refusing to stick your head in the sand.

Leo

There is a real sense of magic and synchronicity in the air and after experiencing a lunar eclipse in your romantic sector 3 days ago and a Venus eclipse in a social and serendipitous part of your chart yesterday, a sense that anything is possible. These are serendipitous times, with a need to take your hands right off the wheel.

Virgo

As the Moon makes his monthly visit to your romantic sector this gives you a chance to get an intuitive read on your heart and to test the waters, as Pluto travels deeper into his retrograde phase here and deeper into your past. With Neptune now in retrograde motion in your relationship sector a trip down memory lane is likely to reveal some unexpected surprises.

Libra

One of the most important keys to having things running smoothly on the relationship front is to also having them running smoothly on the home front and that’s even more important than ever. With home and relationship forces destined to go head to head over the coming weeks, the more you can have them working together the better.

Scorpio

When Jupiter, planet of luck leaves your relationship sector in 5 days time he won’t return until 2023 and with no more planetary activity in your relationship sector until April 2013, this is a time for putting everything on the line. As the Moon makes his last visit to your communication sector before Jupiter leaves, seize the opportunity this creates to ensure the communication lines are open.

Sagittarius

You’re in the grip of relationship forces that can’t be explained and chances are you’re still wondering what just hit you, after yesterday’s Venus eclipse in your relationship sector brought some very raw, honest and real desires, feelings and yearnings to the surface. You can no longer deny how you really feel, with that genie now out of the bottle.

Capricorn

At the same time that Jupiter is performing his swan song in your romantic sector Mercury, planet of communication is warming up in the wings, ready to give your relationships some much needed attention. With a lap over between the two, keep the spirit of romance strong and work to inject as much of this into your relationships as possible.

Aquarius

Whether yesterday’s Venus eclipse in your romantic sector brought joy, magic or pain it brought what was real to a head, giving you something to work on or towards. With Jupiter just 5 days away from the start of his 12 month visit to your romantic sector, this has made it possible to start from a place that is real and that you can build on from.

Pisces

While Mercury, planet of communication won’t begin the day in your romantic sector he’ll end the day here, not only making his first visit in nearly a year, but bringing the first planetary activity since last September. At last your romantic situation has representation and it all begins with your heart finding its voice.

The Daily Chinese Horoscopes for June 7th

Rabbit

You will definitely be the social hub of family, friends and loved ones right now, and just about all the news is good. The phone will be ringing off the hook with this person from that place talking about the wonderful news about so and so over there … spread the joy. This is one time where gossiping is definitely a good thing.

Dragon

Your intuition could lead you to wonderful bargain opportunities today, especially where it comes to antiques and investments. You may be considering investing in some changes to your home. Renovations that you start now may involve tearing down the old to make way for the new.

Snake

You have strong leadership skills right now and people are eager to hear what you have to say. Mostly you’ll be talking about tearing down old structures. Make sure you have a plan to replace them with something new! You could be looking at making financial adjustments so you can better help others.

Horse

All the information your subconscious has been mulling about for the past while suddenly bubbles up to the surface and a wellspring of creativity is yours to tap. You may be making some extra money with a dynamic new home-based business involving art or entertainment.

Sheep

Friends and companions are a big feature of the day. If you are hosting a party or gathering, make sure that there are toys, snacks, and treats for little ones, and a place for them to nap. Others may bring along their kids without notifying you.

Monkey

You’ll be getting some excellent career news this week, as you find yourself attractive and interesting to the authority figures who are important to your well-being. There are certainly challenges, you may find your personal time is limited, but the potential rewards are great.

Rooster

You could be considering buying a new car or investing in a new and unusual form of transportation today. If you are looking for a new physical activity or exercise, bicycle riding could be the dual-purpose hobby you need. It both gets you places and gets you fitter.

Dog

There is a wonderful and unusual opportunity for you to radically transform your finances and your attitude towards the way you make money. Someone will talk about making your money work for you instead of simply working to make money. Listen carefully to their advice!

Pig

If you and your significant other are not seeing eye to eye today, it may not be the best time to bring up your vacation plans, even if that makes for a welcome change of subject. If you want to surprise your partner with a spontaneous trip, make it to some place that they have always wanted to go.

Rat

Your workplace will be something of a circus today. Someone’s workplace romance has burst out into the open and that has the office gossips all a twitter. If you are not involved, try to avoid the rumour mill. Loose lips can sink friendships.

Ox

You have an opportunity to make a special new friend. You will be drawn to unusual people and could make strange or interesting new relationships. You may find that your new companion has some strange ideas about the world and your place in it.

Tiger

A major opportunity to improve your home becomes apparent today. You’ll be considering new home improvements, renovations and upgrades. What you may not realize at first is that some things have to be torn down before they can be rebuilt. It’s a big job.

the daily humorscopes for thursday, june 7th

the daily humorscope 

Thursday, June 07, 2012

 

Aries

(March 21 – April 19)

Excellent day to come up with new theories to explain the universe around you. Remember: the simplest explanation is usually the best. For example, most physicists today subscribe to the “Big Band” theory of the creation of the universe. I have an alternate theory that I prefer, which I call “Tuba Ensemble.”

Taurus

(April 20 – May 20)

You will discover, today, that you can whistle and hum at the same time. This will entertain you for hours.

 

Gemini

(May 21 – June 20)

Try to praise in public and criticize in private. Just never, ever, criticize privates.

Cancer

(June 21 – July 22)

Your relationship is reaching the point where you may as well discuss the Big Question – there’s no point in going further if you don’t see eye to eye on that. By Big Question I’m referring to “crunchy” versus “creamy”, of course. Why, what did you think I meant?

 

Leo

(July 23 – August 22)

This might be a good time to recontextualize your imponderables. If you know what I mean.

Virgo

(August 23 – September 22)

Nobody will notice your new haircut, which you will find intensely irritating. It’s not as if you always had an irridescent green mohawk, you know?

 

Libra

(September 23 – October 22)

Today you will become a digger. Dig, dig, dig. That’s all you’ll think of, for months. You will discover an amazingly large diamond, about 27 feet down, and will be fabulously rich after that. Not that you’ll give me any credit, of course. Ingrate!

 

Scorpio

(October 23 – November 21)

You are being followed by fierce warriors of the Nez Perce tribe. You know – those guys with the little frameless glasses on the chains around their necks? Not surprisingly, many of the Nez Perce became fierce librarians.

Sagittarius

(November 22 – December 21)

Thrombosis. Beware. Also, your best friend will rush up and indicate by nonverbal means that Timmy is trapped under a log again.

Capricorn

(December 22 – January 20)

Someone will soon approach you with an idea. Stay well clear of it.

Aquarius

(January 21 – February 18)

Today you will notice yet another large freshly-dug mound of dirt in your neighbor’s back yard. It’s probably nothing — he probably just digs at night if he can’t get to sleep. I know I do.

Pisces

(February 19 – March 20)

One part of you really wants something, and another part of you wants to wait. It’s quite normal, actually, to have these little internal arguments. Just don’t let it escalate into a fist fight.
