Your Daily Witches Rune for September 3rd is The Moon

Today’s Witches Rune

The Moon

Meaning: Differently from the Sun, the Moon has more subtle powers. While it can represent changes too – after all, the moon changes it face a bit every day – these are usually much slower and long-term than the ones represented by the Sun. It’s feminine and passive.

As the rules of the nighttime, the Moon often symbolizes a transition time, in which things are not yet defined or very clear. It may represents lack of information and bad timing – any action done under the influence of the Moon may not go as expected because of that. Just like the moon influences the tides of our planet, it also influences our inner water – our emotions – causing a bit of emotional instability. This often inspires us to act without pondering.

The Moon works with undercurrents, it shows hidden developments or things done in the shadows. All secrets are protected by the Moon, and it its most negative manifestation this rune can stand for lies, deceit and even self-sabotage.

The Moon is also associated with the female cycles, thus it may represent pregnancy, family, roots and ancestors. When the Moon appears, there’s a strong need to go back to your roots in order to find comfort and understanding. It often symbolizes that you have to find yourself a safe place to wait, like a newborn in the womb… You have to be patient.

I relationship readings, the Moon can represent a strong sexual attraction (specially with the Romance rune), secret affairs, hidden and contained impulses and secrets. Although it adds strength to the attraction, it does not add speed, so the Moon can often represent that almost unbearable tension that builds between two people during a long period of time. It can also represent a certain instability in the relationship, with moments of closeness and moments of separation.

Your Daily Rune for September 2nd is Fehu

bw-fehuYour Rune For Today
Fehu

Fehu is the Rune of prosperity, good luck and unbridled creative energies. Being associated with Frey, this Rune is also a powerful omen of fertility. Fehu is one of the three Mother Stones and should never be taken lightly.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Fehu

 

fehu: cattle

Phonetic equivalent: f

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: prosperity, money, wealth, concern with physical and financial needs, goals, promotion, self-esteem, centeredness, karma

MAGICAL USES: for money, business, promotion, finding a job, achieving a goal, starting new enterprises

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freyr, Brisingamen, Gullveig, Dwarfs, Sigurd & the Otter’s Gold

ANALYSIS: Fehu is both the day-to-day reality of our lives and the catalyst that awakens us to what lies beyond. It is whatever we think we are which frequently bbears no resemblance to what we will eventually find. It is also our home, for after all our wanderings we will need to attend to our physical needs and ground ourselves in the simple pleasures of home, family, and good work. Oz might be a fun place to visit, but after a while all you really want to do is go back to Kansas.

Fehu reminds us that we must be secure in our physical situation before embarking upon any spiritual journey. We all must begin with the mundane reality of our lives, although many people never get beyond this. In many ways, we have become as domesticated as the cattle, living our day-to-day existence without wanting or even being aware of anything more being possible. The first step in breaking away from this situation is to catch a glimpse of what is possible, without dwelling on what security we may lose to attain it.

Your Tarot Card for September 2nd is The Devil

 

 

 

Tarot Card of the Day

The Devil


September 2, 2015

What has traditionally been known as the Devil card expresses the realm of the Taboo, the culturally rejected wildness and undigested shadow side that each of us carries in our subconscious. This shadow is actually at the core of our being, which we cannot get rid of and will never succeed in taming. From its earliest versions, which portrayed a vampire-demon, this card evoked the Church-fueled fear that a person could “lose their soul” to wild and passionate forces.

The image which emerged in the mid-1700’s gives us a more sophisticated rendition — that of the “scapegoated Goddess,” whose esoteric name is Baphomet. Volcanic reserves of passion and primal desire empower her efforts to overcome the pressure of stereotyped roles and experience true freedom of soul. Tavaglione’s highly evolved image (Stella deck) portrays the magical formula for harnessing and transmuting primal and obsessive emotions into transformative energies. As a part of the Gnostic message of Tarot, this fearsome passion and power must be reintegrated into the personality, to fuel the soul’s passage from mortal to immortal.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow,

Your Horoscopes for Thursday, September 3rd

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

We may be misled by our senses today because the earthy Taurus Moon urges us to trust our perceptions. We long for simplicity, but there is more going on now than meets our eyes or ears. Three planets mark the points of an otherworldly seven-pointed star that stirs up the winds of fate and complicates our lives. Trickster Mercury, karmic Saturn and energetic Mars conspire to illuminate and confuse us with information from parallel universes.

 

Aries Horoscope

Mar 21 – Apr 19

People seem more even-keeled today with Mercury’s presence in your 7th House of Others, but they might have hidden agendas that you can’t decipher. Nevertheless, there’s magic in the air and it’s up to you to discern what is real and what is not. You like to take folks at face value but you grow more skeptical as the layers fall away to reveal more mystery the deeper you go. Don’t be concerned if you discover you jumped to a wrong conclusion. Never judge a book by its cover. The outcome could surpass your imagination if you’re willing to readjust your expectations and move on.

 

Taurus Horoscope

Apr 20 – May 20

The more you try to make sense out of a power struggle today, the more complicated the plot grows. You assume that gathering additional information will empower you to come out on the winning end. However, you’re not going to get to the bottom of the story now, no matter how many questions you ask. Stop chasing the facts and just follow your intuition. Paradoxically, letting your imagination take the wheel is your best way to stay on the road.

 

Gemini Horoscope

May 21 – Jun 20

Your responsibilities weigh heavily on your shoulders today, but adopting an unconventional strategy enables you to get everything finished on time. However, your creative approach may be nearly impossible for others to comprehend. Even if you produce something special, your colleagues can’t see how your current artistic pursuits help you fulfill your previous commitments. Instead of waiting for the approval of anyone else now, set your intentions and get down to work. The proof is in the pudding.

 

Cancer Horoscope

Jun 21 – Jul 22

You are such a pro at turning your home into a safe haven that you can keep the complications of the world at bay. But focusing your energy on your personal space is not about isolating yourself from others. Create a comfortable place where people drop by simply because they know they’ll receive your tender loving care. Welcoming others into your sanctuary acts as an elixir for your soul today. But stick to safe topics of conversation to cultivate a nurturing and peaceful environment. Home is where your heart is.

 

Leo Horoscope

Jul 23 – Aug 22

It feels as if you’re putting out fires everywhere you go these days. It’s perfectly understandable if you grow weary of handling one complication after another since the crises never seem to end. You might believe you can step back and let someone else run the show now, but others aren’t as quick to let you recede into the sidelines. Just to be fair, do your part plus a little more and then walk away. Setting clear boundaries is the only way out of this mess.

 

Virgo Horoscope

Aug 23 – Sep 22

You crave to be free of obligations so you can explore fascinating new ideas but people appear to misread your signals today. They might act weirdly because they feel rejected or abandoned by you — but that’s not your intention at all. Happily, you’re just chasing your own personal pursuit of happiness. Instead of focusing on everyone else’s reactions, be straightforward about your motives now. No one can find fault in your actions if you’re honest about what matters the most to you.

 

Libra Horoscope

Sep 23 – Oct 22

You are busy attempting to uphold your reputation as the peacemaker of the group today. However, arbitrating a conflict requires you to know exactly where everyone stands on the issues at hand. But the problem is other people’s positions remain a complete mystery to you now. If you stop to reassess all the variables, it’s apparent you can’t solve every dilemma. Honestly, there are more riddles in life than answers.

 

Scorpio Horoscope

Oct 23 – Nov 21

Although you might find yourself to be more comfortable in the imaginary realms today, steering clear of real-world commitments can be particularly tricky. Whatever you do, keep your loyal fan base in the loop. You can count on your allies to support your creative pursuits any time you ask, so don’t leave your friends in the dark when it comes to your latest inspiration. The more involved they feel in your process now, the happier everyone will be with your success in the long run.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope

Nov 22 – Dec 21

So many people are vying for your attention today that you don’t know where to begin. Or, perhaps, your avoidance of details is making someone else climb the walls. Either way, you need to get back to basics when it comes to your daily routine. Don’t add any more complications to your day; you already have too many distractions on your calendar. In the meantime, choose the simplest solution at every junction along the way.

 

Capricorn Horoscope

Dec 22 – Jan 19

The sooner you set aside your goals for the day, the quicker you’ll find personal satisfaction. As much as you enjoy climbing the ladder of success, you’re not going to make much progress today. Relaxing your expectations allows you to let down your hair and kick up your heels. Choosing a radical course of action fuels your excitement to get an early start on a pleasant weekend. Take fun as seriously as you do your work and you will have the time of your life.

 

Aquarius Horoscope

Jan 20 – Feb 18

You are on the hunt for someone who is willing to view your photos and hear your tales of your last great adventure. Or you’re searching for a friend who will listen to you expound on your plans for the next trip of a lifetime. However, there’s no need to feel disappointment if others aren’t giving you the attention you desire today. Once you realize that everyone else is also caught up in their own worlds now, you won’t be so fast to judge them or expect more. Live and let live; sometimes, your best dreaming is done alone.

 

Pisces Horoscope

Feb 19 – Mar 20

You can feel the unspoken conflict between your colorful imagination and other people’s sensible agendas today. Your friends or relatives may already have big plans for the weekend and are happy to have you play along. But you feel like sticking to your own idea of fun for a change. Although this is not a great time to issue ultimatums, it’s not wise to just give in, either. Instead of the nice fish that swims with the school, be prepared to dart off in your own direction in order to follow the whims of your heart.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, September 2nd

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Be sure to write down new ideas coming to you now, dear Aries, particularly about new systems for doing things in your work, daily routines, and health programs. Ideas are especially inventive now, but don’t be in too big of a rush to put them into action just yet. The tendency right now is to be overly rebellious, reactive, and impulsive. This is a good day for drawing upon energy and motivation to get things done, but do watch for impulsiveness or excessive pride. Shortcuts taken now may cost you more time later on. Aim to focus on more practical concerns.

Taurus

Taurus

The Moon is now in your sign, and the emotional weather is playing in your favor. It’s a particularly dynamic day for learning, sharing, and connecting. Drama in your personal life, with friends, lovers, and possibly children, can arise now, but avoid getting caught up in it when your energy could be better utilized elsewhere. The cosmic atmosphere is electric right now with change-making Uranus in hard aspect with expansive Jupiter. Freedom and change are keywords now, but they’re coming together in a challenging way, which can produce some impatience or impulsiveness. A surprising connection might develop now that redirects your attention. The need for release from the past, limiting attitudes, and restrictive situations is powerful, but it’s important to consider what needs changing first rather than jumping into – or out of – something prematurely.

Gemini

Gemini

Tensions can arise today if people are wanting more from you than you can reasonably provide, dear Gemini, and if there is a situation that has been increasingly more limiting or stifling, you can feel the need to break from it strongly now. You are more spontaneous than usual today, although possibly impulsive. Unusual and surprising energy is with you for social activities. You could meet new friends that give you a whole new perspective on life. Changes can be made in your social circle. There may be a conflict between a desire for more attention to home life and personal plans, and a desire to connect and socialize. The desire for open, equal, and happy associations is strong. Some of you could have been transitioning out of a friendship or totally changing the dynamics of an existing friendship in order to accommodate your increased need for personal freedom. Watch today for some impatience with others.

Cancer

Cancer

Do grab opportunities to enjoy new experiences and to meet new people now, dear Cancer, but avoid throwing your money away, making too-quick decisions about work, or stirring up conflict until you’ve considered possible consequences. You want to have more freedom to express yourself and to say what you want, but it’s important to avoid speaking too prematurely about a matter. Pay strong attention to new ideas generated around you, and within you! New insights into your career are coming now, and it’s important to listen not only to what your intuition is telling you, but also to what seems to be coming from out of the blue – synchronicity and other “chance” events. There may be too many distractions to deal with on the job to be especially productive today, but the day is better for big, new ideas rather than for focusing on the details.

Leo

Leo

There can be a strong restlessness felt now, dear Leo, but without knowing where you’re headed, conflict might be stimulated. There could be a predicament this week regarding two competing desires. For one thing, you want to build something solid, get more secure, make money, or feel more comfortable and rooted. On the other hand, you may have the travel bug or a desire to learn that would take time away from the immediate rewards of accomplishing something now. Watch for impulsive spending today, but do take note of new money ideas, products of interest, and other information taken in right now, as it can be very beneficial later. If you tune into the Moon’s presence in your career sector in harmony with the Sun and Jupiter in your resources zone, you can enjoy easy, natural energy for practical affairs.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You might need to focus in order to handle a financial matter today, dear Virgo, particularly if it’s holding you back from your dreams and need to be freer.  It’s about taking more control over your money and aiming towards a life in which your dependence on others is lessened. This can include the formation of debt. This is a period of freeing yourself from compulsive behavior that has been holding you back from expressing yourself with confidence. You might experience a moment of truth, as well as motivation to kick a bad habit and to live a freer, more joyful life as a result. You can experience a real impulsive streak today, and possibly carried forward into part of the day tomorrow. There can be a strong sense of new opportunities coming into your life now. You should be thinking in terms of progress, but do avoid rash or rebellious moves, which can be a tendency now.
You are not inclined to enjoy being caged in, but neither are you happy with what feels like neglect when given the freedom to do your own thing.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

It’s certainly not the best of days to reach an agreement or a compromise, dear Libra, so you might want to save important negotiations for later. However, the tension that you may be feeling now is likely to light a fire under you. You may not quite know the direction you’re heading yet, however. Watch for erratic behavior around you but don’t let it distract you. New information can surface that pushes the need for necessary changes. You are meeting people who truly contribute to your vision, and you are far less interested in lifeless, dry interactions. Even so, there are some reservations, guilty feelings, or past matters that need handling in order for you to truly feel good about pursuing your interests. This is a time for letting go of limiting attitudes, but also for being mindful of what is truly valuable in your life.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Today, you are more inclined to embrace change, dear Scorpio, but it is important to discern between making changes based on need and jumping into or out of something from a place of rebellion. Ideally, you are now realizing that changes that have been occurring in your life are actually very liberating. If you have been suppressing yourself in a particularly stifling situation, impatience with this part of your life can come on quite suddenly now. An entirely new attitude towards the work you do, the skills you possess, your health and well-being, and your ability to manage the important details of your life emerges today as if you have seen the light. However, adapting to a changeable working environment can be stressful at times, although also more rewarding when you realize you can meet the challenges. You are recognizing your ability to adapt while maintaining your own personal style. Avoid jumping into something prematurely, however. Look for ways to balance your attention to your work and routines with your social life and networking.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Stifling situations and activities that restrict you simply will not be tolerated today, dear Sagittarius, with your ruler, Jupiter, in challenging aspect with Uranus. As long as you don’t totally fly in the face of convention and keep at least one foot on the ground, this can be an inspiring time. Keep a positive frame of mind, but also peace of mind by using common sense in any new venture that is birthing now. As well, be cautious if you’re thinking of throwing out an in-progress project, as the feeling can pass. In short, feel your need for change, but make sure you know the consequences before making life-changing decisions. It can be difficult to rely on others today, as their desire for freedom, or their impatience, can certainly produce some waves in your own life right now. Career news may be surprising, or you may see new ways to handle your responsibilities.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is a good time for new ideas surrounding home and family, dear Capricorn. Conditions might push you to come up with creative rearrangements, or you could be feeling so restless that change seems completely inevitable. Changes in your domestic situation or in your inner world are likely to occur now,  although some of you may simply feel caged in and desirous of change. Unexpected events can occur now that force you along a different path. Alternatively, you may feel a little stuck with two competing needs – on the one hand, you want more personal freedom, and on the other, you want to feel secure. Whether to produce now or build your skills or knowledge further can be an issue. There can be a strong desire to move forward,  but a game plan may be lacking. You may not need one just yet, as you may be able to ride on the feeling that you are on the verge of something important. Stay active, think about what you want to accomplish down the road, and avoid pushing something too fast right now, as it may be premature. The important thing is that you’re feeling motivated and that you’re forward-looking.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Try to embrace the need to make changes today, dear Aquarius, while keeping one foot on the ground. Watch that you don’t get into a crash-and-burn state. There can be shows of independence or circumstances that strongly suggest to you that changes are in order, particularly in your intimate world. Rise above immature reactions and instead respond with more deliberation. Don’t rush through everything. Your ruler, rebellious Uranus, is forming a tense angle with Jupiter, another planet that has a freedom-seeking energy. Be certain of what it is that you want to change. Entertain the possibility that any chance meeting or event now is not necessarily random, but keep in mind that it’s up to you how you react to new situations and ideas. Watch for impatient communications and transportation. Otherwise, look for new ways of looking at old problems that will enhance your life.

Pisces

Pisces

Impulsive buying habits may need to be watched for today, dear Pisces. Combat this if you can, and consider that it may take other forms, such as overindulgence or quick decisions about business that might need more time to evolve. Impatience can make it difficult to see things for their true value right now. Otherwise, you could be feeling quite motivated to make money and to get some work done, possibly to make up for past procrastination. Feeling unsettled or insecure is possible if you are thrust into a situation in which you feel inexperienced today. While this is generally a time for looking forward and feeling positive about relationships and resources, taking quick action may not have desirable outcomes. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be temporarily blowing things out of proportion. While you’re itching to change your situation, risky moves are not advised for the moment. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of too-optimistic thinking.

My friend,

Thank you for being such a blessing to the world. Your presence (whether your mind is aware of it or not) is raising the consciousness of the planet immensely, and the Universe is showering all of humanity with so much more light as a result.

I come to you today with great excitement and joy about what’s going on in the world at this time.

The World Congress on Illumination

I had the profound honor of presenting at the 29th Annual World Congress on Illumination with my friend Patricia Cota-Robles in August, and what we (you included) co-created and witnessed was nothing short of a shift for the ages.

The main contribution of this epic shift came from YOU and your continued dedication and willingness to doing the inner spiritual work necessary to get us here.

To understand the impact of what has happened in the last few weeks, I’d like to preface it with something that many of us have known about for a long time.

The Journey of the Mind

In the beginning, when we were first birthed into physical existence, we had complete awareness of our Divine and eternal Sovereign Selves. We understood that we were One with all of Life, and that we were physical embodiments of Source/God Energy, the all-encompassing Energy that is the Center of all Universes.

We understood that this Energy that lived and breathed through us was not confined to any one specific gender, color, or other trait that may limit Itself in any way, but was rather fully able to recognize Itself as all of us, and all of Life.

When we had this full awareness of who and what we really were in our physical existence, peace reigned, love flourished, and unity prevailed.

Everything flowed and co-existed perfectly. Aging did not exist, as our body temples remained youthful, vibrant, and light . . . pristine and whole.

Along the way, the mind slowly began to forget its Divine nature, as if a veil had been placed upon it. These veils included things such as doubt, worry, fear, stress, belief in lack, and anything else that reinforced the idea of separation.

These veils began simply as a result of the mind believing itself to be of a world that only existed in the material realm, forgetting that it was actually meant to be eternal and free. At the foundation of the forgetful period was simply a lack of trust in the Universe, so that self-protection became the guiding force. A long period of forgetfulness ensued.

Throughout this forgetful period, beings of light would continually materialize into physical form as teachers and sages who would plant seeds of Higher Consciousness for humanity.

Though outwardly much of the wisdom these beings shared would be misrepresented through the ages, the seeds of Divine Remembrance were nevertheless planted in humanity’s consciousness, to be activated in due time.

Then something wondrous began to happen. In the twentieth century, the seeds that had once been planted in the consciousness of humanity began to activate themselves.

People from all around the world simultaneously began to receive higher guidance. New technologies and achievements began to move us forward as a civilization, at speeds we had not known for millennia.

As humanity began to awaken, the collective ego/mind of humanity began to also act out relentlessly, because it felt as though its livelihood was at stake.

It began to do anything and everything it could think of, through whatever means possible, to remain in the comfort of the illusion of separation it had grown accustomed to.

So when we see chaos in the world, that is a clear confirmation that the collective ego/mind is holding on for dear life, because it knows a big breakthrough is on the very near horizon.

The Missing Piece

I share all of this to say that what took place in mid to late August 2015, as a result of the global efforts of millions anchoring the Light—during an event that is synchronized yearly with the dates of the Divine Harmonic Convergence that took place in 1987—forever secured a new age of Unity, Love, and Equality for all.

Here’s how it happened:

From August 15 – 20, 2015, a conscious (and for some, unconscious) decree was made by millions around the world, and a series of light activations were made that affirmed that whatever it would take for humanity to receive the breakthrough necessary to shift humanity into higher ways of being, that it occur immediately.

Through the power of millions gathered intuitively, making the same decree, a massive activation occurred. The breakthrough was this:

Instead of trying to “get rid” of the ego/mind as many teachings, religions, and structures had us convinced we needed to do, what if we simply embraced it?

What if we could understand that the ego/mind is just doing the best it can to keep itself/us safe?

What if we could love the ego/mind and thank it for trying to protect us in this way?

What if we no longer needed to judge it, or to be hard on it when it tries to show up a certain way for us?

Well my amazing friend, that is the breakthrough that occurred. I am excited to say that through the efforts of millions on Earth, and of course our amazing celestial families in the ethers aligned with Pure Love/Source, for the FIRST time since the moment when the mind began forgetting our true Divine Nature (we’re talking millions of years ago), the mind has been freed once and for all.

It has been freed from taking comfort in the doom and gloom scenarios, and has been opened to receiving the highest wisdom, gifts, insights, and blessings that our Spirit desires us to experience.

If you would like to reinforce this sacred breakthrough, simply affirm out loud to yourself and to the Universe:

“Dear mind, I love and accept you wholeheartedly from this second on. I am so sorry for being so hard on you, and making you think I was trying to get rid of you. You play such an important role in the Universe, and you no longer need to fear losing your identity in any way.

I now promise to be here for you. To love, nourish, and guide you always, and to unite you with our Spirit. You and our Spirit were once best friends, and our Spirit is waiting with open arms to embrace you once again.

You are free, I Am free. You are free, We are free.

And so it is!”

Integration

With any healing or activation, there is usually an integration period that follows. If you find yourself feeling a bit more emotional, or more in your mind than usual, or if you are still in patterns that reinforce fear or separation, just know that these are not you anymore.

They are simply the mind’s way of processing and assimilating the new breakthroughs we have co-created in our consciousness, and in the consciousness of humanity.

We will also continue to see a great deal of things come to the surface over the next few months, to be released out of our collective psyche.

The key here is to remain steadfast in knowing that it’s all happening because so much light has and will continue to anchor itself in the world, moving us into a beautiful direction of higher consciousness.

Depending on where each person is in their level of consciousness, everyone will integrate in the perfect way for them, in their own time.

Being gentle with ourselves, and also honoring the journey of others, wherever they are now (even if it’s not where we “think” they should be), will greatly help to accelerate the mind-healing breakthroughs we have brought into our reality.

The job is done. It has been sealed, and fully activated.

Another thing we can do at this time to quickly integrate the mind-healing breakthrough is to ask questions like the following:

Who am I outside of fear, lack, and separation?

Who am I when I choose to embrace my ego/mind as an extension of my Spirit Self?

Who am I when I am free to love and be all of me?

Who am I when I let go of the need to judge?

Who am I when I fully know and trust that my Spirit is keeping me safe always?

Who am I when I remember my Divinity?

Once all of these changes sink in fully, the breakthroughs that took place this August will be looked back upon for many years to come as a major turning point in humanity’s shift into higher consciousness.

If you haven’t already felt the difference, you will soon.

With humbled grace, until next time –

Miraculously yours,

Emmanuel

Message for September 2015

It is an inherent human tendency to try to fill life up with stuff: things to do, places to go, people to see, accomplishments to achieve. There is a sense of discomfort when it comes to consciously stepping into the silent moments as it is within the silence where truth resides. Truth isn’t about ‘answers’, it’s about looking into the mirror of one’s soul and actually genuinely seeing the reflection that looks back without trying to push it away or squash it with yet more stuff. It’s a willingness to stand in the silence, bare and without the distraction of stuff in order to see our true essence.

‘The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear’ Rumi

It’s as though the silence is too a powerful force for some people to face. Yet silence is the true healer in life, it can be found in the spaces in life: between the in and the out breath and in every nook and cranny. Silence is everywhere. Yet, silence is not empty: quite the opposite. Silence is full of life, vibrancy and passion. It is the force of creation and the inspiration of life. In today’s over-stimulated world, distraction can be found everywhere. There is a kind of white noise created by technology and a more intense buzz created by the millions of people lost in their virtual worlds.

Silence isn’t a void, silence is an inner stillness that allows us to hear and to see the true riches all around us. Silence can take us deep within and reconnect us to our emotional and spiritual depths.Without knowing silence, how can we truly appreciate everything else? The silence gives us context, just like day and night, dark and light, joy and pain. Yet Seeing things in such a black-and-white way takes away the context, textures and flavours of life. The silence isn’t a separate force, it is inherent within everyone and everything. Just as the air carries oxygen to every one of our billions of cells, the silence brings life to life.

Human beings are inherently strange and wonderful creations; a complex and awe-inspiring bundle of cells, thoughts and energy, held together by skin and bone. Despite the magnificence of life, the universe and of all the magic that occurs around us in any one given moment, we so often lose sight of our humanity, empathy and compassion, focusing on everything that’s wrong in our lives or doing our best not to notice.

On one hand we create musical masterpieces and discover cures for disease, on the other we decimate the oceans with rubbish and consistently find new ways to hurt each other. A puzzling and bewildering species, seeming growing ever more disconnected and discordant. Perhaps pushing away that silence in todays world of distraction has created a barrier that we have yet to fully comprehend? Whilst there are many of us who actively choose to leap into the silence, it seems important that we allow the silence to grow in order to reach out into the hearts and souls of everyone. It’s time to consciously allow the silence more room to breathe, thrive and flourish…

With love,

Sarah-Jane

Aries

The winds of change look set to gather momentum throughout September as life begins to open up in some unexpected and inspirational ways. There’s a sense that you have been on the brink of a new chapter of your life for quite some time but you have felt a little stuck between where you were and where you wanted to be. As a result, you have felt a growing sense of frustration as, despite your best efforts to push ahead, you have felt held back, as though you were tied to a piece of elastic, constantly coming back to the same place over and over again. Yet, when you look at the bigger picture of your life you will realise that your efforts haven’t been in vain as you have learned a great deal from your ‘period of elasticity’ (well, if you can think of a better phrase, then go for it), and you are now in a position to use some of that wisdom when it comes to riding those winds of change towards pastures new.

You are a free spirit at heart and although you take pride in working hard and trying to be the best ‘you’ you can be, there is a risk that such a strategy can keep you locked on being the person you feel you ought to be rather than the person you truly are. Similarly, this can also keep you focused on the frustration in connection to not being where you want to be in life. It’s important to instead start accepting where you are now and to realise that life is a journey: you will always be moving from where you were to where you want to be next…

Taurus

Life frequently brings you to the threshold of change as it’s inevitable and inescapable. You often find yourself on the brink of something new and it can sometimes feel as though you are forever in a cycle of endings and beginning. As a result, you can feel overwhelmed at times as the frustration kicks in at the seeming intangibility of life and the world as you know it. Although you intuitively know that life is a cycle of change as you are forever changing, evolving and shifting, you want nothing more than to grab a piece of stable ground and set up home for a while in order to process and digest your life and your path. You want to rest in the moment and keep hold of it for long enough to breathe into it fully. Yet, as soon as you grab the moment, it passes and transforms into the next moment.

There is a chance you could drive yourself nuts trying to stand still in the flowing river of life, the effort and energy required to hold yourself upright as the currents push and pull you is huge, and yet, here you are, trying to stand your ground and get that bit of breathing space you long for. It seems a shift in perspective is needed now in order for you to stop feeling so frustrated at being a moving part in the ever-moving, ever-changing universe. Intuitively you want to flow, so why don’t you? Trying to make sense of life is a part of being human, but you can’t put life on hold in the process, you have to live it at the same time…

Gemini

September looks set to be a month of revelation and reflection as you gaze deeply into the mirror or your life and allow it to gaze deeply into you. You are an intuitive and empathic soul, and you spend a great deal of time trying to make sense of ‘what is’ and ‘why it is the way it is’; you want to know the meaning of life and the meaning of the meaning of life. Although you know there are many questions in life without answers, you still seem keen to keep asking as you feel sure that, if you ask for long enough, the answers will surely come! There is absolutely nothing wrong in asking questions, after all, that’s how we learn, blossom and thrive, but it’s important to understand the motivations behind this as there are times when seeking answers to questions that don’t have answers is more of a distraction or avoidance technique than a quest to dig deeper and discover a new philosophy in life.

At the end of the day, only you know what drives you forward, but it seems important for you to understand yourself more in order to prepare yourself for a period of soul-searching and self-discovery. There are moments in life where you feel suspended in mid-air as you bridge the gap between one chapter and another; where you are not quite in the new chapter yet, but you can’t help but look ahead as it feels exciting and liberating. You are in one such moment at the current time and it’s important not to exhaust yourself with intense question asking and instead rest in the moment, step into the silence and allow the silence to step back into you…

Cancer

Almost everyone has a bucket list of one kind or another in life, some even have bucket lists of bucket lists as they have so many things they want to do, be and achieve before they pop their clogs. Some have perfectly organised lists, colour co-ordinated and in alphabetical order whereas others just have a few ideas jotted on a piece of scrap paper tucked away inside their brains. Life is unquestionably short and with the inevitable uncertainty of exactly how much time we may or may not have hanging over us, it’s important to make the most of now and live in the moment. Intuitively you know this, but creating those lists and getting them right can be so consuming and absorbing, and you can sometimes lose sight of the need to experience the experiences you want to experience and instead spend your time listing and organising them.

Of course, thinking about your dreams and goals is important as these feed your enthusiasm for life and give you the incentive to step beyond the comfort zone, but the real joy comes from actually stepping beyond your comfort zone and living your dream. You are a wise, intuitive, creative and passionate soul, and September looks set to be a month where you begin to see yourself and your life from a new perspective as you contemplate what’s really important to you and what you really want from life. It’s time to let go of trying to do more, be more or achieve more in order to make others happy and it’s time to stop those ought’s from defining the path of your life. You are your own person, and the time has come for you to be you, only you and nothing but you…

Leo

The theme of embracing the extraordinary continues in earnest throughout September as the bigger picture of your life starts to expand giving you a more panoramic perspective on your life and path ahead. For a long time now you have tried to be the person you felt you needed to be: the one that holds everything together, the one who thinks nothing of sacrificing your own needs for the sake of others. Such a strategy has turned you into the essential cog in the wheel of life; the one no one can do without. However, the cost of this has been a slow descent away from your true essence into a world of ‘ought’s’ and ‘should’s’ where you have lost sight of your fiery passion and creativity. As a result, the lion within you is more of a kitten these days.

Yet, there is much to be proud of here as you have inspired others to fly high and the time has now come for you to reconnect to the fire within your heart and soul in order to stretch out your own wings and gently flap them up and down as you embark on a new chapter in life. Embracing the extraordinary may sound very grandiose but, is essence, it is a time for you to turn to face your true self and to be the ‘you’ you know yourself to be. You are an extraordinary soul and the time has come to realise this. There is no ego gratification here, just a willingness to let your soul dance freely in the fires of life once again as you let your inner lion back out into the sunlight. You only have to look at that glistening mane to realise there is nothing ordinary about you…

Virgo

Untangling the knots looks set to be a powerful theme for you throughout September as you begin a process of inner reflection and review. You have spent a long time trying to be the best you can be, working hard to achieve your goals and doing your best to stride ever-closer to your dreams. There is a sense that you have become so focused on where you are heading, you have forgotten to take note of where you are now. You are not the same person you were yesterday let alone last year or a decade ago; things change, and more importantly, you change. As a result, although you have been diligent to keep moving forward in life, you haven’t spent much time reviewing your path or yourself and, perhaps the goals you still have in your sights are not quite the right ‘fit’ for you anymore? There is no shame in this, after all, you are a constantly evolving human being, and, as you continue to flourish and grow, your priorities and needs change.

This isn’t to say all your hard work has been for nothing, as it hasn’t, you just need to use that formidable brain of yours to step back a little and regain some perspective in order to gather together the many facets of yourself and untangle any knots you may discover before moving forward once again. Life is essentially what you make of it, so why not take some time to contemplate what you truly want in order to re-focus your energy in new ways? This feels like a new start but it also feels like an opportunity for you to take a big deep breath and fully re-engage with yourself and your life once again…

Libra

Human beings are an eclectic and perplexing bunch; no two are alike and, looking a little deeper, most are a bewildering blend of idiosyncrasies and quirks. Whilst this makes for an interesting and colourful world, it also makes the complexities of being human even more complicated as it can be so hard to make sense of life and to understand why things are the way they are. Although you know all of this, this wisdom doesn’t stop you from expending a great deal of time and energy looking for clarity and coherence where there isn’t any. As a result, there are times when you feel as though you are banging your head against a metaphorical brick wall as, despite knowing you’re doing it, you carry on in a determined and valiant effort to find clarity in order to move forward in life and, until that elusive clarity surfaces, you feel frozen in uncertainty and on pause, unable to move forward.

Some may call this ‘stuck in a rut’ but it’s significantly more complicated than this as for you, the ‘rut’ is more of an epic battle between you and your brain; the ‘rut’ is a gaping chasm created by your motivation and need for clarity and certainty even though intuitively you know you can’t have it. The inevitable frustration of realising you are not a super-human with the ability to guarantee the future and to know exactly why things are the way they are can hold you back and prevent you from living in the current moment. The main reason for this is because your focus in on where you want to be rather than where you are now. September looks set to be a month to come back to the present and to ‘be here now’…

Scorpio

September looks set to be a month for exploring your true essence or sense of self as you begin to contemplate the bigger picture of your life. Intuitively you know yourself to be an intriguing, slightly mysterious, incredibly creative and extremely contradictory soul. The contradictions are not a criticism, more a reflection of your open and honest approach to life: being an open book. Well, although you may present yourself as an open book, on closer examination by someone that ‘knows’, all of those chapters you’ve squirrelled away over the years (those mysterious facets that make you, you) become far more obvious. Herein lies the contradiction: you can’t be an open and a closed book at the same time!

Having said this, there’s no reason for you to suddenly thrust yourself into the spotlight of life and lay yourself bare, but it does seem important for you to acknowledge your contradictions in order to make peace with them. Most of what lies hidden is connected to your creativity as you tend to box it away to make for an easier life, yet keeping your formidable creative power hidden stifles your life-force and stops you from being you. Of course, there is always a choice and you may choose to keep things exactly as they are, but only you can decide if you want to continue to ignore your soul calling you to find a new sense of balance. Being contradictory, mysterious and intriguing is a blessing, so why not embrace your true nature? The only person suffering as a result of your slightly closed-open book approach to life is you, so why not accept your quirks and contradictions, love them and be the best ‘you’ you know yourself to be?

Sagittarius

Some prefer the purr of a sports car, others prefer the rattle of a battered old runabout. There are others who prefer the freedom of a motorbike and others who opt for the real horsepower of horses. Of course, there are those who choose the bus or train, but there are also those who prefer to sit on the sofa of life and contemplate which mode of transport they’d use given the opportunity. At heart, you have a little of all of these within you and there are times when you can oscillate between them as you try to navigate your way through life. Intuitively you know yourself to be a ‘wind through your hair’ kind of soul, heading out on the open road of life, ‘boldly going where no-one has gone before’. Yet, despite this adventure-seeking side of your nature, there are times when sitting on the sofa of life, eating popcorn and watching something mundane on the TV feels so attractive!

Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with having ‘sofa days’ you give yourself such a hard time for ‘taking time off’ from the real business of getting on with your life; you feel a constant inner pressure to push on, to do more, be more and achieve more. Yet, unless you take time out, isn’t there a chance you’ll forget what you’re aiming for? Sometimes you need some crappy TV or a walk in the park to take you out of yourself for a bit, sometimes ‘doing nothing’ is the most constructive thing to do as it resets your inner balance and helps you to regain your perspective on life. Stop giving yourself such a hard time, take a deep breath and let life breathe back into you…

Capricorn

September looks set to be a month for some self-exploration as you begin to contemplate the area around the path you have been walking in life. This may, at first, seem slightly odd, after all, why would you need to explore the area around the path if you are already walking the path and know where you are heading? Yet, in many ways, it makes perfect sense, as to keep your focus narrowed onto the immediate area around your feet, you are missing out on seeing the wider perspective of your life. You may not feel drawn to see a wider perspective, but there is a sense that you need to at least pause to consider your options as it’s important to be sure of the reasons why you are not keen. Could it be you are so happy with things exactly as they are or have you just become stuck in a familiar routine and it’s easier to stick with it rather than risk upsetting the balance?

Obviously, only you know the answer to this question but if you are blissfully happy with everything exactly as it is, then you need read no further. However, if, as is more likely, things are feeling even just a little bit our of kilter in your life, then what have you got to lose by stepping back slightly to take a wider view on yourself, your life and your path? Whilst it may not be easy to create change as you have a plethora of responsibilities in life, use of the ‘i’ word is not in your vocabulary. Impossible? You? You are the master of ingenuity and creative thinking, therefore creating change is perhaps not as impossible as you’d like to think…

Aquarius

Your quest for balance continues in earnest throughout September as you begin to explore new ways to live the best life you can possibly live. Although there is a sense you are a little jaded with the constant busy-ness of life, that spark of creativity within you continues to burn brightly, inspiring you to keep hold of your unique sense of self as well as re-igniting your passion and your dreams. It can be hard at times to manage the everyday pedestrian aspects of life when you are also honing, shaping and manifesting your creative spark at the same time, but if anyone can do this, it’s you. Living the best life possible takes courage, ingenuity and self-belief; it also takes a willingness to step fully into the present moment in order to be here now.

Whilst you are more than aware of the importance of the here and now, it can sometimes be tempting for you to lose yourself in your dreams and in your vision of what living the best life would be like, thus shifting your focus forward into what may, or may not, lie ahead. Of course, this is understandable, as it’s important for you to have a sense of purpose, but there is a risk that you could lose touch with where you are now. As a result, the focus falls onto the gap between here and there rather than on making the most of now. Balance comes from a willingness to let your dreams burn brightly but without allowing them to lift you away from the present moment. Living the best life possible is not a future state of being; it’s where you are right now…

Pisces

September looks set to be a month of inspired and creative vision for you as your life looks set to open up in some new and exciting ways. Although you are quite a fluid and free-moving soul, there is a sense that you also quite like the feeling of knowing where you’re heading in life. So, more like the paddle on a steam boat than a piece of driftwood gently floating along with the ebb and flow; still in water, but one has considerably more ‘oomph’ than the other! Of course, even with a paddle steamer, there is a chance that the currents, tides and storms of life could send you off course, but, on the whole, as long as you steer, you will keep moving forward. As long as you steer? Oops, maybe that’s the problem? You’ve been so busy enjoying the journey and being distracted by the distractions of life that you’ve let go of the helm and let the boat steer itself.

Whilst this could be a wise and philosophical approach to living your life, intuitively you know you are nothing like that whimsical piece of driftwood, you do not ‘drift’ nor do you ‘ebb and flow’; you need to have a sense of direction in order to feel balanced and centred. Even though there are days when you cannot help but get caught up in the currents, it’s important not to allow these to consume and distract you from the business of living your life as this can leave you feeling trapped on one of life’s sandbanks. It seems the more you ‘own’ your true determined essence, the more you will realise that not only do you have the helm, but you have a map, a compass and an intuition that will take you wherever you need to go…
