Cosmic Weather – New Moon Report for 7/15/15

The Reframe. The Release. The Return to Essence.

Hello Cosmic friends and welcome to another new moon. This one’s got quite a bit going on and of course I’ll tell you why. It’s been speaking to me for awhile now and I’ve been listening.

I know the watery (6 planets in water) astrological landscape has some people running for cover, but there really isn’t reason for alarm. This new moon provides us with a excellent spiritual opportunity. Remember dear ones, that Cancer is the great natural psychotherapist. On New Moon day we will have Mars, Mercury, Sun and Moon in that particular sign energy. The Shadow energy being cranky, overly sensitive and defensive. Also, using humor as sarcasm and attack, “I was only joking.” The light side being highly intuitive, healing, attentive and nurturing. It is the sign of the Lunar Goddess and the Divine Mother.

In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) there is a technique called “Reframing,” that I feel is very appropriate here. To “Reframe” something is to put it into another context, setting or frame. Common subjects for reframing are often related to past traumas and current emotional triggers that may or may not be related to the past, but that are causing current difficulty.

In research for my upcoming book, “The Aquarian Healer,” I’ve been exploring the idea of soul archetypal energy and wounding. I have found (especially among those who identify as Empathic and/or Lightworkers,) there are 4 primary personal themes around wounding: Abandonment, Betrayal, Lack and Rejection. I’ve been sharing with you at this page how potent and colorful our dream life has been lately, often providing clues to what the Universe is spotlighting for our healing at the moment.

What’s also interesting about this New Moon is that it also carries some Full Moon qualities of Release. This I feel is vital to the “essence” aspect of it: to fill ourselves back up with our own divine essence after we have done the work of honest psychological examination. It also brings the important reminder that no matter what our background or circumstances were or currently are, we have the power to change our reality. We have the opportunity to “reframe” things working with the current energies available to us if we so choose.

“There are those who think that they were dealt a losing hand. The cards were stacked against them. They weren’t born in Lotusland. You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice. If you chose not to decide, you still have made a choice. You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill. I will choose a path that’s clear. I will choose freewill.” ~ Neal Peart, 1980

This new moon window is a perfect opportunity to stop viewing your personal circumstances as tragic or unfair, but more along the lines of the perfect training for you to complete your human mission and soul’s agreement. – The Keepers, 7.13.15

Happy New Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!

NOTE: New Moon in Cancer is 7/15/15 at 6:24 pm PDT/9:24 EDT.

The Daily OM for April 28th – Clinging to the Core

Clinging to the Core
When Our World Falls Apart

by Madisyn Taylor

When external factors shift we have an opportunity to rediscover our core which is the only truly safe place to call home.

There are times when our whole world seems to be falling apart around us, and we are not sure what to hold onto anymore. Sometimes our relationships crumble and sometimes it’s our physical environment. At other times, we can’t put our finger on it, but we feel as if all the walls have fallen down around us and we are standing with nothing to lean on, exposed and vulnerable. These are the times in our lives when we are given an opportunity to see where we have established our sense of identity, safety, and well-being. And while it is perfectly natural and part of our process to locate our sense of self in externals, any time those external factors shift, we have an opportunity to rediscover and move closer to our core, which is the only truly safe place to call home.

The core of our being is not affected by the shifting winds of circumstance or subject to the cycles of change that govern physical reality. It is as steady and consistent as the sun, which is why the great mystics and mystical poets often reference the sun in their odes to the self. Like the sun, there are times when our core seems to be inaccessible to us, but this is just a misperception. We know that when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets for the night, it has not disappeared but is simply temporarily out of sight. In the same way, we can trust that our inner core is always shining brightly, even when we cannot quite see it.

We can cling to this core when things around us are falling apart, knowing that an inexhaustible light shines from within ourselves. Times of external darkness can be a great gift in that they provide an opportunity to remember this inner light that shines regardless of the circumstances of our lives. When our external lives begin to come back together, we are able to lean a bit more lightly on the structures we used to call home, knowing more clearly than ever that our true home is that bright sun shining in our core.

The Daily Motivator for April 1st – See it as an opportunity

See it as an opportunity

It’s only a limitation if you see it as a limitation. Choose to see it differently, and you’ll find a way around it.

Many things influence your life and your work, often in negative and limiting ways. Nothing, however, can stop you from moving forward in each moment with positive purpose when you are committed to doing so.

Instead of assuming that some factor in your life is a limitation, make a different assumption. Decide to see it as an opportunity to grow stronger.

Instead of wallowing in disappointment when things don’t work out the way you planned, choose a different response. Choose to be more inspired, more motivated and more determined than ever before.

Whatever has happened, has happened, and there’s nothing you can do to change that. What you can change, though, is what you do with it.

Tell yourself it’s a good thing, and moving forward, you’ll find a way for it to be precisely that. Rather than seeing something as a limitation, see it as an opportunity and get busy living the value that is most certainly there.

The Daily Motivator for March 26th – Big break

Big break

Stop looking, wishing and hoping for some other person or outside event to give you a break. Go ahead and give yourself a big break.

The perfect opportunity is not the one that exists only in your fantasies. The perfect opportunity is the one you have right now.

You have the opportunity, on this day, in this place, to do good and valuable things that will move your life forward. You can have the big break you desire by working to make it happen.

If you wait for conditions to be perfect before taking action, all you’ll ever do is wait. Go ahead, with things just as they are, and do all you can.

Accept the fact that it is indeed difficult to move your life and your world forward. When you stop fighting against the difficulties, and simply work your way through, they are not nearly so difficult.

This is the time you have, and this is the time to act. Give yourself a great big positive break today, and feel the joy as your most treasured dreams begin to come to life.

— Ralph Marston

The Daily Motivator for March 18th: The opportunity is now

The opportunity is now

Right now is your opportunity to fully live this day. It’s an opportunity  that will never come again.

If you waste the opportunity that is now, you are guaranteed to deeply regret  it later. If you make the most of the opportunity of today, then tomorrow you’ll  have access to an even greater opportunity.

To live a rich, fulfilling life, you must do valuable, fulfilling things.  Today is when you can choose to do those things.

You can either punish yourself by avoiding the opportunity of now, or you can  reward yourself by doing all you can to make the most of it. Think of that when  you’re deciding how to spend the next moment, and the rest of this day.

There is unclaimed value right in front of you, right now. By giving of  yourself and by sincerely making your very best efforts, that value can be  yours.

If you wish to fill your life and your world with richness, the opportunity  is now. There is so very much to give and to live, so get busy and do it.

The Daily Motivator

Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, December 19th

Emotional retreat is quite tempting today because the self-protective Cancer Moon can raise concerns that encourage us to withdraw from others. The apparent significance of our thoughts is inflated by magnifying Jupiter as it aligns with intelligent Mercury. Luckily, we have the ability to think up unusual solutions to our problems now. However, it’s still tricky to know whether or not any of the brilliant ideas are actually worth pursuing.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You actually think that you’re being sensitive to the needs of everyone else now, but you’re probably not looking much further than your own ambitions. Instead of just assuming that others have goals that are identical to yours, ask them what they want. Remember, you must listen to how they respond without trying to convince them to change their minds. Be wise and keep an open mind in all your interactions today. You might be pleasantly surprised by how much you have in common.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It may be flattering if others attempt to persuade you to participate in their far-out schemes today. However, you need to be firm about your limits so you don’t end up wasting your valuable time and resources on someone else’s idea that distracts you from your own work. Be exceptionally cautious now if an opportunity seems too good to be true — because it probably is. Be smart and wait a few more days before actually saying yes.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Hold on to your wallet today since you could quickly get into trouble by purchasing something that’s beyond your means. If an investment opportunity comes your way, it may not be as lucrative as it appears. You might think that you are in control, but that’s because you cannot tell if any of the facts are being distorted. Double check everything you are told now before taking an unnecessary risk; it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Play it cool today because you may be feeling vulnerable and managing your emotions can be challenging, especially with the Moon moving through moody Cancer. To complicate matters even more, someone could be exaggerating the story they are telling you, which makes it harder to know if something is awry. Nevertheless, constant suspicion on your part creates its own set of problems and you might miss a real opportunity. Your best strategy is to verify your facts before making any long-term commitments.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Things are looking up today, but don’t put all your eggs in one basket because your current view may be a little too optimistic. Be careful, for your positive thinking can stoke your confidence so much that you get in over your head. Cut back your expectations just a bit so you won’t have to face unnecessary disappointment in the near future. Adopting a realistic approach enables you to achieve the creative expression you seek

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your hopes for a relationship might be so high now that you can’t possibly make your unrealistic dreams come true. You may become frustrated, leading you to try overly hard to please your friends. It’s tempting to expect so much from others that they cannot possibly satisfy all your needs. Instead of fixating on the outcome today, keep bringing your attention back to the present so you can fully engage in the process as it unfolds.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Although you might be hesitant to share your true feelings today, your tone might convey more than you actually intend, anyhow. It’s hard for others to tell whether you are exaggerating or if they are just reading more into your words because of their own expectations. Ultimately, it makes no difference where the problem begins. Avoid misunderstandings by softening your message. Less intensity works wonders now when it comes to matters of the heart.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

There are a limited number of productive hours in each day because some of them need to be reserved for sleeping and eating. Although you can pack a lot of activity into a short amount of time, your tendency is to take on more than you should today. You might even tell yourself that you’re being practical, but you could convince yourself of nearly anything now. Make your life easier by reducing your commitments before things get out of hand.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your interest in discovering new ideas might open up an unexpected avenue of exploration today as you seek to understand the mysteries of the universe. You could be drawn toward a spiritual tradition or unusual philosophy if you attempt to delve beneath the surface. But don’t just accept the truth in everything that comes your way. A bit of healthy skepticism now can save you a big headache down the road. Nevertheless, traveling with an open mind is still your ticket to the next adventure.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are the one that everyone comes to for advice because you see opportunities through a very wise and practical lens. Additionally, you are able to communicate your ideas with great clarity now. While others may miss the potential problems with your plan, you can quickly spot the flaws, too. But this isn’t about being negative; it’s more about keeping it real. Relying on your pragmatic nature improves your chances for success.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may think you have to share every little detail in order to clearly explain your position, but spending too much time on the minutiae actually gets in the way of your message. After a certain point, the more you talk today, the less anyone will listen. Give your audience the basics in as few words as possible. They can always ask questions if they need to know anything else. Less is more.

 Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Sharing your feelings may be just what you need today, but you can alienate others if you say too much too fast. It’s misleading if your friends encourage you to keep talking, since they might be supportive only because they think it’s their duty to listen. Luckily, there’s no need to shut out those who truly care about you, but rambling on about the details of your life won’t make anyone feel any better now. Thinking about your message in advance allows for the best possible reception.

The Daily OM for December 5th – A Citizen of the World

A Citizen of the World
Vacations

by Madisyn Taylor

An aware traveler sees each new journey as an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of humanity.

As the technology of travel grows ever more refined, the world grows smaller. Whereas a journey of a hundred miles once took many days, we can now travel across the globe in mere hours. The four corners of the earth are accessible by plane, train, and ship, and there are few pleasures in l

ife as soul-stirring and transformative as travel. In a new land, the simplest of joys can be profound—meditation takes on a new quality because the energy in which we are immersed is unfamiliar. Our sensory experiences are entirely novel. Yet the relative ease with which we can step out of our own culture in order to explore another means that we are ambassadors representing not only our own way of life but also the culture of the traveler. As a conscious citizen of the world, you can add value to the locales you visit while simultaneously broadening your own perspective.

A truly aware traveler sees each new journey as an opportunity to improve international relations, spread goodness, and gain a greater understanding of humanity. To immerse yourself in foreign cultures is to open your mind to fresh ways of being. Your natural curiosity can help you navigate the subtleties that define a culture. While you may not agree with all the traditions or laws of a country, abiding by them demonstrates that you understand and respect their value. Staying centered in another culture is often simply a matter of learning about your destination, being patient with yourself and others, and accepting that people may treat you as an example of your country’s attitudes. New worlds will open to you when you take part in the everyday life of a locale—the reality of a destination is in its markets, its streets, and its people.

Traveling presents a wonderful opportunity to practice being open-minded and grounded. The voyages you make help cultivate a worldwide community in which we as humans can acknowledge and appreciate our differences as much as we recognize and appreciate our similarities. Though you will eventually return home, the positive impression you leave behind will remain as a testament to the respect and amicability that marked your intercultural interactions.

The Daily OM

Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 9th

We have to set aside our emotions today so we can focus on the practical aspects of our lives as go-getter Mars sextiles taskmaster Saturn. Creating a concrete plan, combined with hard work, ensures progress. Meanwhile, in direct contrast, a visionary Mercury-Neptune alignment heightens our fantasies and invites us into the dreamy poetic realms. The intelligent Aquarius Moon enables us to use our imaginations without losing touch with reality.

 

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are in the driver’s seat now because you know the full consequences of what you are doing. You recently had the opportunity to consider all your options before choosing your present course of action. The potential rewards may be quite satisfying, although it could take more time than you think for your labors to bear fruit. Setting a sustainable pace today is more important than your actual production, so keep your eyes on the future and your shoulder to the wheel.

 

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re not interested in anything superficial now because you want to see tangible results from your extra effort. Unfortunately, confusion can catch you off guard today if the distance between your optimism and reality is too much. Adopt a logical and balanced approach and pay attention to the details. There is great potential for success if you maintain a positive attitude and keep your common sense close at hand.

 

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Whatever you say today could be less important than your actions. Your behavior not only speaks louder than your words, it also has longer lasting consequences. Nevertheless, you have a significant opportunity now, but it might not be obvious at first. No matter what happens, be creative as you tell your story. Dream out loud and share what’s on your mind. You may be pleasantly surprised with the wonderful response you receive.

 

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You have an interesting choice to make today as your plans come up for reconsideration. It would be easier if you were the only person involved, but someone else’s needs must also be included. Opening your mind to reexamine your goals from a wider perspective can be very enlightening as you see possibilities that you previously overlooked. Don’t say no too quickly to anything that comes your way or you could miss a wonderful opportunity to further develop your evolving life strategy.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

There is so much happening that it tests your ability to remain calm and it might be somewhat disconcerting now as you try to keep it all together. Harmonious aspects conspire to clear the path toward your destination, but doing the work is still, ultimately, your responsibility. Your schedule is so full that you may consider sleeping less just to squeeze everything in. Things will slow down in a few days, but in the meantime, make sure you get some much-needed rest.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Someone at work may be acting overly sweet toward you today and you might not know what to do about it. Your uncertainty could stem from an overall lack of clarity about what you want. Or maybe the other person’s intentions are questionable. Either way, your smartest strategy is to explore all avenues before deciding your course of action. Luckily, your reasoning is sound now, even if the options are confusing at first. Once you’ve considered the pros and cons, make your choice and stick to it.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s hard to feel satisfied with just having a nice experience today; you crave something that goes beyond the ordinary. Even if you finish your work early, you still won’t be able to fully enjoy yourself. However, you are currently blessed with the patience to wait for the right moment and the drive to follow through on your plan. Once you know that the timing is right, don’t hesitate to make your move. If your intentions are clear, your mind can turn your fantasies into reality.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your creative juices are flowing and it’s wise to find ways to concentrate on your self-expression. But this kind of sharing isn’t just about personal issues; it’s time to set new goals and then pursue them. Yet, even if you are overcommitted, you can still do what needs to be done. There is major assistance coming your way from the hidden realms of your own subconscious world. The spiritual growth and psychological work you have done in the recent past may be put to good use in the present.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Unfortunately, you may be doing more armchair traveling today than real trekking around the globe. However, as your vision expands, you might miss important details or gloss over data that you don’t have time to integrate. Luckily, you could make a lot of progress now by saving money for a future trip. Remember that sometimes the planning stage of a getaway can be nearly as much fun as the real thing; take your time and enjoy the anticipation while it lasts.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although you might be uncharacteristically laid-back at work today, you still need to juggle your personal and business worlds while keeping the two of them apart. But don’t miss the powerful opportunity to make something special happen, since you have the right balance between intention and follow-through now, enabling you to accomplish whatever you initially set out to do. Make sure that you have your facts straight, but don’t get too hung up in the details. Share your vision as you let your inner poet or philosopher out of the closet.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be inclined to spend money on something you don’t really need today. Buying a gift for yourself is a lovely thing to do, but you might be drawn toward purchasing an item that is more extravagant than you can afford. Ask yourself whether or not your potential purchase is really such a good idea before you face possible regrets in a few days. Ironically, exercising a bit of self-restraint works to your advantage in the long run.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although it’s wonderful to fuel your life with your dreams, don’t let it be an excuse to be completely unrealistic. It’s as if you must maintain a double existence now. You have your head up in the clouds, but need to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground since it’s tempting to escape to another world. However, you still must pay careful attention to the process or your best ideas will only get lost. Thankfully, you can go anywhere your imagination carries you while riding this powerful spiritual wave.

October 23 – Daily Feast

October 23 – Daily Feast

Opportunities abound to us every day. There is an opportunity to be sick, the opportunity to argue with someone, the opportunity to be discourteous, the opportunity to believe something that is not true. Stop thinking you have no opportunity. You have had every chance to do many things and some of them you have received. You were led astray by thinking you could not help yourself. We can help ourselves. By the words of our mouths, by what we say, how we think, what we believe, we help or break ourselves. Victory comes because we are consistent in saying we are well, we are strong, we are enormously happy.

~ They told us not to drink whiskey, yet they made it themselves and traded it to us for furs and robes. ~
