Autumn Energies

Autumn is a time of the year which represents balance and enlightenment. It gives us the power to look back over the spring and summer to see if we had fulfilled our goals, dreams, aspirations and desires. It makes us realize that procrastination is a negative force in the universe, a blocking of life force energy, (chi), that will not allow us to go happily in to our futures. We need to be persistent in our goals and must create, journey and explore our universe to find our true happiness and discover what boundless accomplishments we could bestow upon the world. It is a selfless time to contemplate, meditate and dream of your futures. It gives us that much needed pause to slow down and start prioritizing our lives so that we can make it the best we can with the most positive results for all involved.

The Autumnal Equinox is also about celebrating what you have accomplished and reveling in those positive accomplishments. It is a magnificent time to think of others and realize how lucky we truly are to have journeyed far into ourselves with understanding, truth and compassion. This makes us realize that any charitable gesture or action can make a difference in someone’s life no matter how small and the feeling of sharing, giving, exchanging and bartering your gifts with others will always make you feel blessed and humble as you help your fellow human beings in this third dimensional plane.When the leaves start to fall, it is as though the universe has given in to the rationalization that all things must eventually die and be reborn in due course. It is the never-ending cycle or circle of life that we have become accustomed to. It is life as we know it. This is our second chance to make things right, to find that balance within us and to live life the way we had always intended…with peace, love, harmony, joy, good health and an abundance in all things. Happy Autumn to all!

Autumn and Feng Shui

Autumn is a wonderful time to clean out your house of all the things you no longer need, want or like. Many garage or yard sales are going on in local neighborhoods and you can make some extra cash by getting rid of your “treasures.” You never know what people are looking for and you may just have that odd piece of furniture, kitchen accessory/appliance or accent piece they have been looking for. This is also a great time to make room in your home, garage, basement and attic for the upcoming holidays. Remember, with the weather getting cooler and eventually colder with snow, your family needs room to relax, read a book or magazine, write out the bills, enjoy each other, watch TV or play video games, and do homework. They need a comfortable and organized living space.

With the new energy of the season, it is important to clear out the summer energy and have a more relaxed and calming environment. Many people rearrange furniture, change bed linens to glorious fall colors and change curtains in every room. Any alterations bring a change of energy with them so be sure that you feel comfortable, happy, relaxed and stress free after you redecorate or update your room’s look. If you are tired of the same old curtains or comforters, change them. If the same worn out throw pillows are a site for sore eyes, perhaps going to flea markets, garage sales or local stores who are having sales would be a good alternative. It will make you feel re-energized as you bring in new energy of the item and the color into your home.

  • Be sure to have your wooden deck or porch power washed and water sealed before the heavy snow of winter. Snow can easily erode wooden decks. Be prepared to have a new, fresh-looking deck in the spring. It looks new.
  • Check and double check all outdoor sensor lights. Make sure they are where you want them for the winter keeping in mind that you may have to shovel a driveway or walkway and pile the snow high on the lights. They may even be broken when shoveling as you can’t always see them in the high snow drifts. Make sure you place them where your guests and family members can see the driveway and walkway clearly in the dead of winter.
  • Put all outdoor furniture away in the garage or basement. If this is not an option, be sure to buy covers or tarps and wrap up all the tables, chairs, BBQ and other equipment if they are going to be exposed to the upcoming harsh weather.
  • Start raking the fallen leaves a little every weekend. If you are lucky to be home (retired, work from home, etc.), you can rake the leaves or use your mower with the leaf attachment any time you wish. Do this at least once a week so you don’t get behind on this boring task.
  • Get all the fall/winter curtains, bedspreads, blankets and afghans dry cleaned or washed so that they will be ready when the cold winter nights are upon us. With everything fresh and clean, you are free to change the linens and curtains whenever you are ready.
  • Steam clean wall-to-wall carpeting so that as the crazy holidays approach, this is one less thing you have to do. (Some people actually steam clean their rugs after the holidays so that it stays fresh and clean right through spring! That’s a thought!).
  • Give your home a good “fall” cleaning and get rid of items you no longer need, like or want. Declutter. Organize.
  • Have a garage sale and make some money with all of the “treasures” you no longer need, like or want. OR bring your items to a charity and get a tax write off.
  • Check all of your Christmas (or holiday) supplies and decorations. This could be Christmas tags, wrapping paper, tape, money holder cards, tins for your cookies, tissue paper for your gifts, gift bags, etc. All decorations and Christmas lights should be looked at and be sure they are in good condition. Check your Christmas lights so that you won’t be disappointed after stringing them on the tree and finding out many lights no longer work.
  • Get everyone’s holiday list and find out when and where major holiday sales will take place. You will have your holiday shopping done in no time and you’ll save money too.
  • Don’t go out on Black Friday. The stress level of that day is not worth it. By now, you will have had purchased many of your presents. If you still have shopping to do, try to order on line and have it delivered to your door. No fuss or waste of time, energy and gasoline.
  • Talk to the family and find out who will be hosting which holidays so there is no confusion.
  • Organize lists for food shopping, guest lists, invitations, and/or phone calls. Delegate responsibility so that everyone has a chance to help with the holiday festivities.
  • Be sure to bring all of your potted plants indoors. This can be in the basement or garage or in a sunny window. Read about what your particular plant needs and try to accommodate that plant. Many plants can be ready for the spring time and bloom again. Saving money by not having to buy other plants to replace them is a good thing.
  • This is a lovely time to clean out and organize the attic as well. The temperature is still moderate or slightly chilly, but pleasant to work in. Keep or toss Christmas decorations while decluttering your attic. (Your attic represents “the future” in Feng Shui, so be sure it is organized with limited amounts of junk or unnecessary clutter. You wouldn’t want your future filled with junk or unnecessary things, would you?). Items that should be in your attic are holiday decorations, luggage, seasonal clothing and bedding/curtains. Always box other items that you truly feel you need to store. A better place for a lot of items is in your basement since the basement is “your past” so anything in the basement cannot hurt you in the future. Be aware of flooding. I personally put wedding albums in my basement and when Super Storm Sandi hit, the Rubbermaid bins floated, rolled over on its side and opened. I lost a lot of stuff; however, I realized I was supposed to let go of the past and it didn’t bother me. Be careful how you store things in the basement.

In regards to color, bold color brings in more vibrant and dynamic energy. The pastels bring in the energy in a softer, more harmonious plane. Remember that these colors also work if you are wearing them as clothing or accessories.

The bold color brings in more vibrant and dynamic energy and you could change your environment or space around quickly. The pastel color brings in the positive energy in a softer, more compromising and yet harmonious level but it is very soft energy which means it will take a concerted effort to move towards your goal of changing your surroundings. Remember that these colors also work if you are wearing them as clothing or accessories. If a particular color touches your skin, they are absorbed into your auric or energetic field for the day and you would be surrounded by that color and influence for the entire day. Be careful of the color of clothing you purchase and wear.

The easiest way to get colors into a particular gua (or area) is by placing art work into that area. Flowers, gardens, an outdoor café lined with colorful umbrellas, a meadow scene with lots of wildflowers all can bring many colors into a particular space. The ultimate idea is to bring all colors into every part of your house, apartment, condo, townhouse or room. It does not have to be so blatant that everyone knows that this is the black or red area, but be discreet by putting pillowcases, linens, curtains, sheets, tablecloths, napkins, dinnerware, etc. with a hint of these needed colors.

Color References

Black
Most teens wear black and now we know why they act the way they do! Black represents depression, upset, negativity, sadness, restrictions, limitations, obstacles, concerns, issues and feeling out of place or without a connection, despair, misery, hopelessness, dejection and melancholy. If you must wear this color or decorate your home with this color, you need to accent it with positive strong colors to balance this negative energy.

Blue
This soothing color helps you express emotions, empathy, sympathy, compassion and sensitivity. This is a nice calming color for an adult or child’s bedroom or any area of the home where you would like to bring tranquility. Blue also means clear sailing, harmony, peace and going into the right direction.

Gray
This color is not recommended for rooms (but may be used for a neutral rug or window treatments). Gray represents fears, doubts, worries, anxieties, being over whelmed, stressed, confused, lost, procrastinating tendencies and indecisiveness. You feel as if you are on a foggy road and cannot read the signs which would guide you to your destination, so you just keep on going and going until someone saves you or helps you find your path.

Green
This is a beautiful, peaceful and calm color. This color brings in prosperity and abundance, financial security, fertility and growth. It gets projects “growing” in the right direction; it is a nurturing and supportive color.

Pink
This refreshing and uplifting color brings harmony, peace, joy, self-confidence, love, happiness, self-esteem, relationships, partnerships, friendship, prosperity and everything that will make you happy.

Purple
This is the most spiritual color which has the highest vibrational rate. Purple brings in esoteric interest and study, philosophy and honors all cultural, spiritual and religious traditions. Metaphysical or spiritual knowledge is brought through this color for you to use or to pass along to others who could use the knowledge and insight from Above. Many psychics surround themselves with this color or see this color when they are meditating.

Red
What an assertive, dynamic, passionate and energetic color. Red usually motivates people who are procrastinators and helps them bring their never-ending list of things to do to an end. This color brings vibrant energy, makes one self-motivated, active and lively. It gives them much motivation and drive to accomplish whatever they feel is important in their lives. Too much red can cause temper tantrums and anger. This is not a color that is recommended for a young child’s room. I do not recommend this color if you are looking for a restful or peaceful environment.

Tan/Browns
This section includes beige, mauve, orange, and khaki as well. This is a very grounded, focused, stable and organized color. Tan, etc., brings a good foundation and is very secure. It helps you stay connected to Mother Earth, keeps your feet on the ground and makes one very persistent. It also helps you prioritize your life in a very analytical way so that you can accomplish your dreams and ambitions in a positive manner.

White
White is the sucker color. It brings energy of being too good, caring, loving, kind, generous, honest, trust worthy and doing everything for others and in return, no one does anything for you. Eventually, you will become a doormat or have no life of your own since you are too busy helping others. Set some boundaries and limitations and stick with them. Stop falling for sad stories. Stop lending money which you will never see returned. I tell my students never to wear white underclothes as your foundation for the day is to be a sucker and have everyone take advantage of you! Wear more beige! You will become more grounded, centered, focused and stronger; no one will ever take advantage of you ever again!

Yellow
The powerful and alive color of the sun stimulates the mind. It activates intelligence, logic, analytical and methodical thoughts and is a great color for a library, place where children study and where common sense is required.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

So many things seem to be changing in your life and with these changes come new beginnings.  Do not be afraid to let your life proceed in a new direction.  All changes lead to new paths and more positive opportunities.  Love life may be more exciting; love is rekindled or you may find a new love that suits your moods and intellectual level better than ever before.  Home life is very important now so you may be thinking of moving, beautifying your home or finishing up projects that have been left on the back burner for too long.  Creativity is a Godsend now since it helps you relax and get away from many of your responsibilities and scattered energy that you must expend continuously just to get through each and every day. Let the children choose which costumes they would like to wear this Halloween. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Many personal changes come to you. You may be “growing up” in some way as you seem to be taking on new responsibilities, ones that you handle with ease and great skill.  There is no surprise from others that you can handle whatever you put your mind to and you do it so well.  You may be more serious than usual, but you are handling all obligations well. Children are very important in your life now so do what you feel is necessary to help them along with their education, after school activities and their social lives.  Your sincere ingenuity is amazing and many are amazed that you come through situations and circumstances with flying colors.  You are determined to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals right now.  Taureans are in better spirits and thinking long term now. If you must, make your children’s costumes for Halloween, but many stores have lovely costumes as well if you are in a pinch for time. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Many things will be blown out of proportion and it’s up to you to set things straight.  The truth goes a long way in paving a peaceful path towards a happy future. Make sure you know what or who you want in your future so you can plan your life accordingly.  If you settle for second best, you will be really upset with yourself in the future.  Basically, it’s a time to plan things for couples, whether with your significant other, lover or children, siblings, or other family members or close friends. You want to accomplish so much now but also need to do for yourself as well.  When was the last time you had a moment to yourself?  Try to think of all the projects that have been pushed aside so you can do things for others.  Maybe it’s time to make yourself first so that you will feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.  Try to pinpoint only one or two Halloween costumes for the kids (or yourself) before you will never be able to decide what to be and the day will come and go just as quickly as your thoughts about it. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

There seems to be changes coming into your life, but you are not sure how to handle them.  You want positive change but may not be ready for all the good things which are coming your way.  A good way to look at it is just to go with the flow and all good things will come to you. You always help others and may not find it easy to accept help from others but this is a time to collect your karma chips for all of the good deeds you have done for others.  Let others help you.  Career may be in a state of flux; however, things will work out for the best once you accept the fact that life has its ups and downs and that things usually happen for a good reason.  Cancerians may be a bit fussy over choosing a costume for Halloween so let your children have a say in what they want to wear.  

LEO – July 22 – August 22

You want to get from underneath money issues and will try to start saving for things you really need instead of charging purchases.  You may wish to go to school, get additional training or work towards other certifications or degrees for the good of your career future.  Travel is always on your mind, but other things must come first.  Pay attention to your family’s needs; they want your time and energy in their lives.  They would rather have a few more hours a day of having you with them than having you work extra long hours for the money.  Spend time with your family on weekend outings while the weather is still good enough to venture out into the open spaces.  Leos are very generous people and are trying so hard to balance their lives and help others at the same time.  It is time that you balance your time and energy so that you are not only are there for your family, friends and/or significant others, but also for yourself.  Give the gift of time to yourself.  If you are going to go out on Halloween, do something totally unexpected.  Choose a costume that is totally opposite from what you would normally choose and surprise your friends and family.  Have fun. 

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Don’t take everything so personally and talk things over with those you love so that there are no major miscommunications or disagreements. Health continues to be good and romantic relationships may take a turn in an unexpected direction.  Trying to regroup and get your life in order is an important task.  You want to get into different philosophies or religion in life now and are taking classes and reading more than usual.  You want to be different and stand up to your mutable characteristics.  Virgoans want to know everything, so keep learning and using that knowledge for everyone’s best interest.  Romance gets better and better each day and you find your niche in creative and home projects and are very happy about your results in general.  Remember, perfection belongs only to God.  Do not be too hard on your children or yourself about any costume you may make or wear on Halloween. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

It seems as if you will make many decisions and do many things that you have been procrastinating on in the recent past.  You are getting stronger and more confident about many things – good for you.  You are ready to start a new beginning in life and will do whatever is necessary to make it the best decision you could possibly make.  Be sure you are not too giving, caring, loving, kind, generous and honest when it comes to others.  Not everyone is as kind-hearted as you and you may be hurt if you trust others based upon your own beliefs.  Get things in writing to protect yourself and there should be no verbal agreements.  Love life is grand.  It’s almost as if you are in love with love again after a few compromises, but not to worry.  Your compromises will help solidify your future into one that you will be proud of.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Many thoughts are coming into your head now.  You want to be more spiritual or learn more about metaphysics or philosophies.  Now is a time for self cultivation and self study so treasure each free moment you have and set up the books you want to read ahead of time so that you can figure out how much time you may need daily to get your reading goal finished.  Also, e-books, CDs and DVDs should be caught up with as well.  Get your never ending list of things to do started so that in a few short weeks, you will have made a bigger dent in them than you thought possible. Be consistent, persistent and passionate about what you want to do this month so that you will make that vision happen.  If you are going out for Halloween or taking the kids house to house, be sure you are truly happy with your costume choice. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Your own projects are not getting done and it is taking a toll on your mental health and you are exhausted! Procrastination is the worst energy field to have around you and it keeps you in the exact spot as you are now! Stop taking on more tasks for others when they rarely help you with anything.  It’s time for the old excuses, “I’d love to help you, but…(I am on my way out; I am not feeling well; I will call you when I have time, etc.) and in this way, you will have time to do what you need to accomplish.  Once you feel as if things are going in a more organized and controlled way, you will feel great.  Good luck is also coming in to help you with anything you need to be very clear about what you need from the universe.  You can get what you want at another time.  We know you will wear something totally outlandish for Halloween, but no matter what it is, have an outstanding time and lots of fun. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Caps are becoming more tolerant and are open to different perspectives now – how refreshing!  You are becoming much more mature on many levels.  It seems as if you want your life to change in many ways and you are willing to do whatever needs to be done to get to the next level or the next project.  Even though you are feeling as if you need a break and perhaps some relaxation, you are still working as hard as ever (does workaholic sound familiar?) to accomplish all of your tasks at work and home.  You are running on empty to quote a song, but when the dust settles, you will be in a much better state of mind and your physical health will improve tremendously. Your thinking becomes crystal clear and you know what you want to do for the rest of your life (or have a pretty good idea).  

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

If you budget and use your money wisely, everything that you need will be available for you. You are also making financial plans for the future.  How can you afford this or that or how can you save more, etc. Family is only trying to help with suggestions and opinions, so hear them out and give them the benefit of the doubt.  Try new things with a creative flair.  You are ready to spread those artistic (or creative) wings and fly.  If work related issues are causing you stress and making you feel unappreciated, then it may be time to look into other alternatives.  You need a supportive environment at work and home, so if you are not getting it, do whatever you need to do to have a more stress free life.  Your health is important – so protect it. If you need an annual physical, make sure you get it while you are thinking of it.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Family is a wonderful thing even though you may not agree with them from time to time, but they are always there for you and you should be there for them as well. Even if unusual circumstances surround family issues, you have to love them; they mean well. Try not to be too sensitive or emotional now because you have so much to look forward to.  Many things are behind the scenes especially with family, so don’t push the issue if someone does not want to tell you the whole truth.  This is not the time to know whatever it is anyway.  Dealing with life in a much more positive and productive way will bring you many of the opportunities you crave.  Be open for change and push for your ideals and dreams forward as well.  You do not have to give in to everyone all of the time; make your opinions known and let friends and family know which compromises you are willing to make.  You are in control of your own life, so don’t let others talk you into anything you are not comfortable with at this time.

I do not recommend this color if you are looking for a restful or peaceful environment.

Tan/Browns
This section includes beige, mauve, orange, and khaki as well. This is a very grounded, focused, stable and organized color. Tan, etc., brings a good foundation and is very secure. It helps you stay connected to Mother Earth, keeps your feet on the ground and makes one very persistent. It also helps you prioritize your life in a very analytical way so that you can accomplish your dreams and ambitions in a positive manner.

White
White is the sucker color. It brings energy of being too good, caring, loving, kind, generous, honest, trust worthy and doing everything for others and in return, no one does anything for you. Eventually, you will become a doormat or have no life of your own since you are too busy helping others. Set some boundaries and limitations and stick with them. Stop falling for sad stories. Stop lending money which you will never see returned. I tell my students never to wear white underclothes as your foundation for the day is to be a sucker and have everyone take advantage of you! Wear more beige! You will become more grounded, centered, focused and stronger; no one will ever take advantage of you ever again!

Yellow
The powerful and alive color of the sun stimulates the mind. It activates intelligence, logic, analytical and methodical thoughts and is a great color for a library, place where children study and where common sense is required.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

So many things seem to be changing in your life and with these changes come new beginnings.  Do not be afraid to let your life proceed in a new direction.  All changes lead to new paths and more positive opportunities.  Love life may be more exciting; love is rekindled or you may find a new love that suits your moods and intellectual level better than ever before.  Home life is very important now so you may be thinking of moving, beautifying your home or finishing up projects that have been left on the back burner for too long.  Creativity is a Godsend now since it helps you relax and get away from many of your responsibilities and scattered energy that you must expend continuously just to get through each and every day. Let the children choose which costumes they would like to wear this Halloween. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Many personal changes come to you. You may be “growing up” in some way as you seem to be taking on new responsibilities, ones that you handle with ease and great skill.  There is no surprise from others that you can handle whatever you put your mind to and you do it so well.  You may be more serious than usual, but you are handling all obligations well. Children are very important in your life now so do what you feel is necessary to help them along with their education, after school activities and their social lives.  Your sincere ingenuity is amazing and many are amazed that you come through situations and circumstances with flying colors.  You are determined to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals right now.  Taureans are in better spirits and thinking long term now. If you must, make your children’s costumes for Halloween, but many stores have lovely costumes as well if you are in a pinch for time. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Many things will be blown out of proportion and it’s up to you to set things straight.  The truth goes a long way in paving a peaceful path towards a happy future. Make sure you know what or who you want in your future so you can plan your life accordingly.  If you settle for second best, you will be really upset with yourself in the future.  Basically, it’s a time to plan things for couples, whether with your significant other, lover or children, siblings, or other family members or close friends. You want to accomplish so much now but also need to do for yourself as well.  When was the last time you had a moment to yourself?  Try to think of all the projects that have been pushed aside so you can do things for others.  Maybe it’s time to make yourself first so that you will feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.  Try to pinpoint only one or two Halloween costumes for the kids (or yourself) before you will never be able to decide what to be and the day will come and go just as quickly as your thoughts about it. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

There seems to be changes coming into your life, but you are not sure how to handle them.  You want positive change but may not be ready for all the good things which are coming your way.  A good way to look at it is just to go with the flow and all good things will come to you. You always help others and may not find it easy to accept help from others but this is a time to collect your karma chips for all of the good deeds you have done for others.  Let others help you.  Career may be in a state of flux; however, things will work out for the best once you accept the fact that life has its ups and downs and that things usually happen for a good reason.  Cancerians may be a bit fussy over choosing a costume for Halloween so let your children have a say in what they want to wear.  

LEO – July 22 – August 22

You want to get from underneath money issues and will try to start saving for things you really need instead of charging purchases.  You may wish to go to school, get additional training or work towards other certifications or degrees for the good of your career future.  Travel is always on your mind, but other things must come first.  Pay attention to your family’s needs; they want your time and energy in their lives.  They would rather have a few more hours a day of having you with them than having you work extra long hours for the money.  Spend time with your family on weekend outings while the weather is still good enough to venture out into the open spaces.  Leos are very generous people and are trying so hard to balance their lives and help others at the same time.  It is time that you balance your time and energy so that you are not only are there for your family, friends and/or significant others, but also for yourself.  Give the gift of time to yourself.  If you are going to go out on Halloween, do something totally unexpected.  Choose a costume that is totally opposite from what you would normally choose and surprise your friends and family.  Have fun. 

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Don’t take everything so personally and talk things over with those you love so that there are no major miscommunications or disagreements. Health continues to be good and romantic relationships may take a turn in an unexpected direction.  Trying to regroup and get your life in order is an important task.  You want to get into different philosophies or religion in life now and are taking classes and reading more than usual.  You want to be different and stand up to your mutable characteristics.  Virgoans want to know everything, so keep learning and using that knowledge for everyone’s best interest.  Romance gets better and better each day and you find your niche in creative and home projects and are very happy about your results in general.  Remember, perfection belongs only to God.  Do not be too hard on your children or yourself about any costume you may make or wear on Halloween. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

It seems as if you will make many decisions and do many things that you have been procrastinating on in the recent past.  You are getting stronger and more confident about many things – good for you.  You are ready to start a new beginning in life and will do whatever is necessary to make it the best decision you could possibly make.  Be sure you are not too giving, caring, loving, kind, generous and honest when it comes to others.  Not everyone is as kind-hearted as you and you may be hurt if you trust others based upon your own beliefs.  Get things in writing to protect yourself and there should be no verbal agreements.  Love life is grand.  It’s almost as if you are in love with love again after a few compromises, but not to worry.  Your compromises will help solidify your future into one that you will be proud of.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Many thoughts are coming into your head now.  You want to be more spiritual or learn more about metaphysics or philosophies.  Now is a time for self cultivation and self study so treasure each free moment you have and set up the books you want to read ahead of time so that you can figure out how much time you may need daily to get your reading goal finished.  Also, e-books, CDs and DVDs should be caught up with as well.  Get your never ending list of things to do started so that in a few short weeks, you will have made a bigger dent in them than you thought possible. Be consistent, persistent and passionate about what you want to do this month so that you will make that vision happen.  If you are going out for Halloween or taking the kids house to house, be sure you are truly happy with your costume choice. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Your own projects are not getting done and it is taking a toll on your mental health and you are exhausted! Procrastination is the worst energy field to have around you and it keeps you in the exact spot as you are now! Stop taking on more tasks for others when they rarely help you with anything.  It’s time for the old excuses, “I’d love to help you, but…(I am on my way out; I am not feeling well; I will call you when I have time, etc.) and in this way, you will have time to do what you need to accomplish.  Once you feel as if things are going in a more organized and controlled way, you will feel great.  Good luck is also coming in to help you with anything you need to be very clear about what you need from the universe.  You can get what you want at another time.  We know you will wear something totally outlandish for Halloween, but no matter what it is, have an outstanding time and lots of fun. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Caps are becoming more tolerant and are open to different perspectives now – how refreshing!  You are becoming much more mature on many levels.  It seems as if you want your life to change in many ways and you are willing to do whatever needs to be done to get to the next level or the next project.  Even though you are feeling as if you need a break and perhaps some relaxation, you are still working as hard as ever (does workaholic sound familiar?) to accomplish all of your tasks at work and home.  You are running on empty to quote a song, but when the dust settles, you will be in a much better state of mind and your physical health will improve tremendously. Your thinking becomes crystal clear and you know what you want to do for the rest of your life (or have a pretty good idea).  

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

If you budget and use your money wisely, everything that you need will be available for you. You are also making financial plans for the future.  How can you afford this or that or how can you save more, etc. Family is only trying to help with suggestions and opinions, so hear them out and give them the benefit of the doubt.  Try new things with a creative flair.  You are ready to spread those artistic (or creative) wings and fly.  If work related issues are causing you stress and making you feel unappreciated, then it may be time to look into other alternatives.  You need a supportive environment at work and home, so if you are not getting it, do whatever you need to do to have a more stress free life.  Your health is important – so protect it. If you need an annual physical, make sure you get it while you are thinking of it.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Family is a wonderful thing even though you may not agree with them from time to time, but they are always there for you and you should be there for them as well. Even if unusual circumstances surround family issues, you have to love them; they mean well. Try not to be too sensitive or emotional now because you have so much to look forward to.  Many things are behind the scenes especially with family, so don’t push the issue if someone does not want to tell you the whole truth.  This is not the time to know whatever it is anyway.  Dealing with life in a much more positive and productive way will bring you many of the opportunities you crave.  Be open for change and push for your ideals and dreams forward as well.  You do not have to give in to everyone all of the time; make your opinions known and let friends and family know which compromises you are willing to make.  You are in control of your own life, so don’t let others talk you into anything you are not comfortable with at this time.

September 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  September 3, Labor Day; 9th, Grandparents’ Day; 10th, Rosh Hashanah begins; the 21st, the International Day of Peace and the 24th, Sukkoth begins.

Save Our Planet and Put Money in Your Pocket

I have been trying for some time to help the planet in my own way, and I will share some of the things you can do to help our planet.  Some suggestions are:

Don’t run the tap water while you are brushing your teeth and doing the dishes.

Turn off the TV or lights when you go into another room for any length of time.  As my father used to say to my mother when we were young, “What is this, a light house?”  Save energy when possible.

Set air conditioning at 73-74 degrees if it is a programmable unit, otherwise you can always just turn it to medium.

Keep heat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter.  A sweater goes a long way to keeping one warm.

Clean out your freezer and refrigerator.  Eat leftovers or at least know what you have so that you don’t duplicate your purchase and may have to throw away more food.

Use cloth napkins on your table and let your family use their napkin all day before tossing them into the wash.  You are doing laundry anyway, so just toss them into the washing machine when needed.  Don’t do the laundry unless you have a full load of clothes.

Plant trees around your yard for the natural way to cool down your home during the hot summer months.

If you are having a BBQ or party in your home, think of using your regular dishes and silverware which can be washed and reused.  Most of us have several sets of dishes so it can be fun to mix and match dinnerware.  The dishwasher is an efficient way of cleaning your dishes afterwards and again, you’ve saved the planet. Buy biodegradable plates and utensils instead of disposable ones for any BBQ or event if you must use them.

When having a picnic, BBQ or get together, ask your guests to bring a bottle of wine, side dish or dessert to offset the cost of the party.  You will also have time to enjoy your guests because you don’t have to worry about the dessert and coffee coming out at the right time, etc.

You can buy used furniture at auctions, the Salvation Army, a garage sale or off of the web.  Much furniture is in very good condition and is a fraction of the cost and it keeps you from buying new.

Buy two-year old cars.  New cars lose 20% of their value just driving off of the lot.  You can get a good car for less money and a new car did not have to be produced just for you.

Use reusable containers instead of aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

If you are buying new appliances, get the efficient energy savings rated ones.

Have your home checked for window, door or attic leaks.  If your home is not air tight, you are throwing your heating and air conditioning dollars away every hour of the day and night.

Get low flow shower heads and/or chlorine filters for your shower head.  Apparently, we are absorbing 100 times of chlorine into our skin in an average 10-minute shower just as if we were drinking 100 glasses of tap water.  That’s pretty unsettling.

Use old maps as wrapping paper. (I was recently at a baby shower and the person having the shower asked that no presents be wrapped to save on paper.  A card was attached to each gift!)  Reuse gift bags and save wrapping paper from another gift, if possible.  Use recycled paper for your gifts.  Gift cards are a handy gift so that your gift recipient can get exactly what (s)he needs and there’s no wrapping!

Refill plastic water bottles with filtered water, iced or green tea, Crystal Light or anything else you like to drink.  You can reuse these bottles many times before throwing them in the recycle bin.

Print on the back side of used paper if you can or use the paper for scrap.  Save a tree and save money by not having to buy as much new paper for your home printer.

Bring a ceramic mug into work (probably the cost of one purchased coffee) with you so you don’t have to use paper or Styrofoam cups.  Encourage other employees to do the same.  Stop using plastic straws with beverages.

Instead of buying $4 lattes, bring your own travel mug to work with homebrewed coffee or tea.  You are saving money and the use of paper cups.

The Kindle has saved many trees from being torn down or you can borrow books from a library.

Magazines can be passed around to friends.  The impact on trees would be extraordinary and you will save some money in the meantime.  I also leave them at doctors’ offices so others can read them too.

Support local farmers in season!  It may be a little more expensive, but you can trust your veggies and fruits aren’t GMOs and are fresh.

Use reusable shopping bags instead of paper or plastic.  Many have them in their car trunks but never get them into the stores. Store them in the back seat so you will easily see them for any shopping visits.

Plan a circular route to all of the places you need to go so that you don’t waste gasoline (prices are ridiculous) or time.

Use a compost pile in your yard rather than throwing out food into the garbage which gets piled into dump sites.  You will have helped the planet and will be starting to have some pretty good soil for your own plants and trees.  Up here in the Poconos, the groups of deer who visit the property have a good variety of fruits and veggies, as well as their outer skins, that they love to eat.  They just about eat anything.

Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Craigslist or have a garage sale.  You will be getting a few dollars for your unwanted stuff and may be helping someone else get a perfectly good used item that (s)he would have otherwise had to purchase new.

Buy reusable or recycled products.

Buy bulk items which reduce wasteful packaging.

Reuse boxes or cartons to ship your own items.

Car pool to work, a party or an event to save on gasoline.  Public transportation is also a great way of getting home safety if you have had too much to drink at a party.

Bring in a lunch from home to save you money.  Even if you only spend $5 a day on lunch and $3 a day on coffee, that’s $8 a day, $40 per week, $160 per month or $1820 a year (probably the price of a great vacation!).

If you have leftovers you won’t eat this week, freeze them for another time so you may use them when you don’t have time to cook because of an appointment or event.

Visit local state parks which are usually free and close to home.

Take walks with your loved ones or walk a pet for exercise and entertainment.

Use windshield wiper fluid to clean indoor windows and mirrors.  This is a big savings over Windex and being this was formulated for outdoor use, it gets rid of dirt and grime easily.

Use newspapers to clean the windows and mirrors.  They clean better and you are not wasting paper towels.  Or buy the KAYWOS cloth available at www.kaywos.com.  You just wet it, clean a mirror, window, car windows, the car, a glass table, etc., and you do not have to dry it.  Then rinse and dry for the next use.  No harmful chemicals will be used in your home.

Buy recycled paper products such as bath tissue and paper towels, if possible.

Less than 20% of all plastic bottles are recycled.  Many are thrown into the ocean and can last for several hundred years before breaking down harming marine life.  That should make us rethink the use of plastic in our lifetimes.

Set up a paperless bill paying system with your bank or your creditor’s website.  You don’t have to pay postage, use an envelope and waste time writing a check!

I hope you can use some of these helpful hints to save our planet and keep some money in your pocket at the same time!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Good luck seems to finally be following you around so get out and do what you want to be doing instead of only always handling your responsibilities.  You need to flourish and grow.  You should try to work on your own self cultivation and interests.  Do you have time for yourself?  When was the last time you tried your hand at one of your hobbies?  Are you stressed and unfulfilled?  Handle one or two major responsibilities each day but leave time for you to learn, be nurtured and accumulate knowledge.  What a great time to have some fun and let go of your overpowering responsibilities and obligations.  Romantic relationships are fun and you should try to get away to interesting and secluded destinations for a mini vacation.  Try to lighten up and chill a little.  Your hectic life style is not healthy. Be resourceful with your money as you seem to want to spend it like it’s going out of style.  Buy new clothes to replace outdated fashions, but you may not need as much as you think you do.  Feeling carefree and as if life is finally giving you the small break deserve to get your life back on track, makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for more challenges. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Partnership issues and relationships are of key importance now.  New beginnings, good communication and new adventures seem to be before you, so nurture the energy while it is here.  You are endeavoring to go into so many wonderful directions and receive splendid opportunities to help push you to a bright future.  You are strong (and yet a bit insecure) about taking these big steps, but you can do it.  Life is interesting, especially with your romantic partner.  Many new wonderful opportunities are being presented to you regarding business and personal partnerships; however, there is much going on to confuse the situation as well.  You need to decide what you need from a relationship and then choose whether or not your current partner helps you meet those goals.  Some challenges appear in school or your career. Perhaps thinking of changing your viewpoint on issues would help you understand things that have eluded you. Be positive about changes in your life and go with the flow since change is inevitable and it might as well be in your best interest. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Dealing with many issues regarding business and personal partnerships can be confusing and exhausting.  Miscommunication and a loss of wonderful opportunities are possible if you don’t get on the right track. There is just too much to do, but because you are overwhelmed and not as organized as you normally are, many opportunities will pass you by.  You wish you had more time to do the mundane tasks in life like clean the house, pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, etc. and yet you are glad that your creative juices are flowing and that you are handling your artistic and spiritual sides.  Getting your important papers in order seems to be on your mind, so just do it and get on with your life.  Organization, prioritizing and securing your life seems to help you understand what you need to positively proceed in to your future.  Hard work, study, social events and volunteer work help you network and get your name out there a lot quicker than staying home and doing accomplishing little around the house or with home projects.  Things have been crazy lately, but they will calm down soon.  Handle the many little jobs you need to get done so you can clear your mind of the clutter. You should take a new class in jewelry making, painting, poetry, writing, etc., to get those creative juices flowing again.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Finances are your main concern, yet again.  Things are going in a positive direction for you, but you need to make some hard decisions about your money and possessions.  How important are they to you?  Is your family more important?  You may find out that money and possessions aren’t the only things you need in this lifetime.  Moon children are trying to make a very secure future for their loved ones, but they do get sidetracked easily so keep on your path and go to the future and find wonderful rewards. Long distance travel, higher education (including training classes, lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) will benefit you on your job or in getting a better job.  Focus on the many great opportunities that are around you so you can grab them and make them a reality. Dealing with financial issues would also help you to focus on your future goals.  Changes in home life seem positive, so don’t be afraid to go with the flow now as you are in control of your destiny (even if you don’t believe it!).  Compromise should be your family’s mantra this month.  Be smart and let others do the talking.  Your job is to listen and acknowledge others.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

This is a great time to make a plan of action about your direction in life.  Taking control of your situations would help you move in that direction.  Even when situations do not go your way, your determination and persistence make anything possible.  Travel, higher education and your philosophies of life will aide you to get to your desired goal.  Stop thinking on such a grand scale and take care of the small stuff first so that the larger stuff can take care of itself. Learning how to react in all situations helps you feel more confident and as if you can take on the world.  Your tolerance levels are improving and you realize that not everyone can be exactly like you or have your unbelievably high standards. Start celebrating the differences around you rather than relying on consistency.  Romance is also in the air.  If already attached, it seems that you will most likely have a change of heart and want to change things about the relationship or change the relationship itself! If not attached, you will finally want to commit to the one you love. Try to show the ones you love how much you really care about them by showing them affection and attention.  

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Career issues seem to be moving in a different direction and they seem very positive!  You feel more in control of your life and its direction as you start to see the accomplishments and kudos that others are giving you for your contributions.  Even though you may be somewhat pessimistic about some areas of life, your spirit will lift as things you’ve wanted start coming to you.  Career seems to be the most important issue around you this month.  You use your intellect and logic to get to your goals, but you may also find yourself expressing yourself much too much. You may be totally misunderstood now so choose your words carefully. Expansion and promotions are on the horizon and if you play the game.  It will be much easier for your company to finally recognize what you do for them.  If self-employed, this is an excellent time to expand and try new markets as success is in the air. Scattered energy, intellectual abilities, a zest for life and work push you to so many positive avenues.  Be open to opportunities so that when opportunity knocks, you can open the door. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friendships may change or will be strained by an event or situation that you are not comfortable with.  Talk things out or you may lose someone close to you or someone whom you depend upon.  You may also be handling many situations for others as well, so get your life in order before helping those you love.  You want action, change and to keep going in a positive direction so join groups, travel, have fun and meet new people.  You shine this month, so be prepared for adventure.  Networking is an important tool to help you accomplish your goals.  More friends come into your life and you seem to make very important partnerships with them.  Joining associations and volunteer organizations will help you achieve some of your goals.  Start visualizing which hopes, dreams and wishes you would like to manifest and start promoting them as a positive thought each day.  Don’t handle too many obligations and responsibilities as you usually do.  Balance is the key to a happier life. This is a great time to let others pay you back for all the kindnesses you have given them throughout the years.  Smile and just say thank you to those who wish to help and you will be surprised at how easy it will be to accomplish everything. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

It seems as if many situations are unfolding and you are trying to sort through them all.  Prioritize your list so that you deal with only the most important issues now.  You can always do the small stuff later.  Changing your appearance, going for a makeover, taking a class to learn something new and deciding what you truly want out of life is before you.  Choose wisely. Much good luck and positive energy seems to favor you, so do the impossible.  You want to accomplish so much, but your scattered energy and varied obligations keep you from fulfilling your dreams.  Creativity and illusion play an important role in relationships, so see reality for what it is.  Partnerships need to be re-examined and steps taken to fix all the issues that are making you annoyed.  Be patient and tolerant now as others are trying to live up to your expectations; however, sometimes you expect too much from others.  They will appreciate the kind words.  Accept help from others.  Focus on your future results so that you attract the energy that you need to accomplish your goals. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is an opportune time to budget for the things you truly need.  Your wants can come at another time.  You get obsessive about saving for a particular project or item and you will do all you can to make it happen in a relatively short period of time.  Traveling, running around like a chicken without your head and spending money seem to be your issues for this month.  Being the soft-hearted person that you are, you want to help others but this may be the time to concentrate on your partner and yourself.  Sensitivity is high and change is in the air.  Career or company differences may force you to leave your current position for a new and better one where you will be praised for your opinions, hard work and intellect.  After dealing with so many recent changes and challenges, it will be nice to be able to sit back and relax.  Love life is blooming; however, it just doesn’t seem that your partner and you get too much time together due to varied obligations and responsibilities.  Spend quality time together, if possible. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family issues seem to be your main concern.  Deal with the outstanding problems and do whatever you can to make peace easily.  Things will settle down and you will feel as if you’ve accomplished much.  Sibling issues may arise again; however, if you do not have siblings, then it may be issues with those you feel are as close to you as a sibling would be. Family related issues need to be dealt with quickly so that everyone can be at ease with each other, friendly and peaceful.  Short distance travel is activated, so go for that long weekend trip and take a friend or family member.  A lovely drive to the shore or up to the mountains will rejuvenate you!  You really need some quiet time for contemplation or meditation since you have had too many issues on your mind; you also need a good night’s rest.  If additional training or schooling is required (for a new career or self-employment position), this is a great time to start looking into courses for your advancement.  Whatever you do to enhance your career is very positive. 

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

It is time to chill and get some relaxation and enjoyment out of life.  You are handling so much lately that you barely have time to sit down to watch TV or read the paper.  Your obligations are many, your responsibilities take up your leisure, but with you handling so much, you will be surprised at how quickly things will finally fall into place.  There are many unusual circumstances around your family and close friends that you may want to handle.  Creativity is enhanced now, so don’t let it pass you by.  Take an adult education course in something creative or that would help you use your imagination and innovative abilities.  Journaling your thoughts or a dream journal are fun hobbies.  Your mind is so preoccupied with so many things to do that you don’t seem to be setting any time aside for yourself.  Taking care of others is a wonderful gift to them; however, it would be a special gift to yourself if you thought of how to make your life a little less frantic and overwhelming by concentrating on your needs.  Handling family issues is overpowering, but you seem to have the coolest head in the family and your stability is very much appreciated.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

There may be changes in romantic relationships or you are looking for love in all the wrong places!  Be open to having friends or family set up blind dates as they only have your best interest at heart.  Be open to meeting those who you may feel do not meet your criteria as you may be surprised.  So many things seem to overwhelm you now, but you are going into better times with fantastic opportunities just ahead of you.  School or training is fun but should be used to help move you forward and not just as an escape.  Moving from your current residence, or if that is not an option, redecorating your home to make it seem totally different will make you feel as if you have accomplished the impossible – making your home feel the way it should, safe and secure, beautiful and new.  Things may be intense from time to time, but once you make your mind up to go into a certain direction, you will be free to just go and accomplish everything that is important to you.

June 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Flag Day, the 14th; Father’s Day, the 17th; and Summer Solstice, June 21st.

Making Wishes

We all make wishes.  Wishes give us hope that everything will be okay in the future and that we will be happy, prosperous, gainfully employed, and find our soul-mate.  Wishes are something to look forward to.

The differences can be the size of the wish, the intent, and the time frame you’ve added.  It is also in the way we try to manifest our wishes, some with 4”, 3-day or 7-day candles which take a great deal of time to burn before you can make your wish opposed to a birthday candle which can be out in as rapidly as ten minutes! Try to make your wish as specific as possible so the universe knows what you truly want.

So, the next time you want your wishes to come true quickly, make sure you use small birthday candles.  Remember to use the appropriate colors for your wishes, such as: red for passion, pink for love, yellow for logical endeavors, green for good health and secure finances, black to get rid of confusion and negativity, purple for a higher connection to Spirit and orange to initiate change.

I hope this little tidbit of information was useful. I have a small stock of birthday candles so when I think it’s time to make a wish, I use the appropriate colored candles and just wait for the wishes to come true!   They never fail.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Plans are taking off and your life seems to be going in the proper direction.  Your career may be changing for the better so don’t let any opportunities pass you by.  The least you can do is listen to a proposal or be open to the possibility of a new job. You are also opening up to being more expressive with your emotional energy.  You want to make new friends and have more fun, so get out there and meet new people.  You want more good times, more energy, more fun, more friends, more family get-togethers, more everything.  You are tired of being tired – you want to live a stress free fun life now and move onto the next phase of your life with gratitude, purpose and resolve.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Thinking things through logically before making final decisions would be a good way to keep from making mistaken choices. This is a time to get give your future plans some serious thought.  Your activity level is busy and then not.  It seems to be like you are riding an emotional roller coaster and you just can’t get off.  You want to accomplish so much, but then procrastinate.  Then you may want to go out and conquer the world, but decide you’d rather stay in and sleep.  Education seems important now, so either you are thinking about getting more formal education for your career or future, or you are nearly over with your educational pursuits and will use this expertise to get yourself a really good position within your field.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Career options may be limited, but once you decide what your heart’s desire is for a job, new opportunities will come to you.  Health issues may pop up so deal with them quickly so that any concern will be minimal.  Plan your medical appointments that have been put on the back burner for way too long.  Get your “to do” list is some kind of order.  Stop adding to your list until you finish what is currently on it.  Gems must balance their intellect and emotions now and deal with issues that are confusing to them. Finances will become more stable so don’t fret about the things you can’t pay at the moment.  Try debt consolidation or budgeting.  Rethinking your path and life is instinctual now.  You may want to brush up on many of the beliefs you have or you will start to embrace other beliefs and add them to your own.  More strength and determination are coming your way so that you can handle any issues that you need to quickly and easily.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Trips and vacations seem to be on your mind although it looks as if you may need your finances in good standing for upcoming purchases so be careful about spending what you don’t have.  You may have the right attitude to make things happen quickly and effectively if you don’t change your mind once you have made the decision.  Formal education, lectures, workshops, classes and books all help you develop towards your desired goal of improving yourself and/or your career status.  Religious or philosophical belief systems may be altered or changed.  Relationships seem to be going in the right direction with a lot of fire and passion; however, don’t get into a bind by fighting over petty issues.  Compromise will help you get what you want and, in the long run, help the relationship blossom into a more harmonious bond.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Relationships need to be looked into to see if you are with someone who supports your goals and dreams.  If not, you have a major decision to make about your future happiness. Health seems good and if you start a good diet or exercise program, you will be in the best shape you have been in for a very long time.  Great energy and emotional stability is coming your way.  It seems you know what you want and really want to go ahead and get what you feel you deserve. Finances improve although it seems that you keep spending it as soon as you make it, so budget your money and buy only what you need at this time.  If family matters seem odd or you are confused over an issue that just doesn’t make sense, just let it go.  Don’t get involved in all of the intrigues and deception.  Accept your part in the family issue, try to resolve it and then move on. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Friends are a major issue during this time, so keep your close ones near you, but keep an eye on the ones you are not 100% positive of as well.  Changes are on the horizon in so many areas.  You need to focus on what you want and clarify the energy or opportunities you wish to bring into your life.  Siblings will be helpful in guiding you in the right direction.  Although you just are not ready to trust others with some of your decision- making abilities, asking for assistance or opinions will be a positive step forward to trusting others.  Partnerships go well if you are comfortable in them; otherwise, you may start thinking of finding someone new and more in line with your soul’s purpose. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

If you want more self -cultivation or alone time, this time will assist you in getting what you need to survive and be happy.  It is a time for reflection, meditation, studying esoteric teachings and communing with nature.  It is a time to get back in touch with yourself.  Deal with what isn’t working and continue with the positive energy that is around you.  Hospital visits or tests seem possible, but health in general looks good.  Be aware that someone is trying to spend or use your money possibly without your knowledge.  Keep a handle on your finances so they can blossom and grow. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You may feel uneasy about things going on in your life and you want to change everything now!  Take time to make your decisions as once you make them, it may be hard to change them if they haven’t turned out the way you wished.  Family issues seem to improve, but you may still have an issue or two with a sibling that needs to be resolved.  Home life in general is creative, stimulating, fun and holds a lot of bizarre energy bouncing back and forth throughout your home with affects your moods.  Disagreements with love and business partners may cause you to question why you have stayed on for so long, but all in all you will succeed in all that you do once you decide what those things are. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Money is coming in and you are doing better with your financial objectives and goals. Paying obligations and responsibilities on time gives you the urge to spend more but try to resist.  So much of your life is expanding.  Things in your life are turning around, you have good luck with your personal health and within the health industry (if you need tests or procedures) and you are becoming more centered and stable as you try not to let things bother you all of the time.  Don’t get confused with going back and forth on many issues.  Once you have made a decision, it would be in your best interest to stay with that decision.  Positive changes are on the horizon in love and close personal friendships. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Be sure that you are really satisfied with your romantic partner.  You don’t want to be someone who does not have your same background, beliefs or integrity.  Many changes will push you in the right direction so don’t be afraid of the unknown.  Love life changes in some way.  If you were worried about breaking up, maybe this is the push you need to get out of this relationship.  If you are not in a relationship, then it would make partnership energy available to you.  You have the potential for meeting your true twin flame that will mean the world to you and your future.  Partnerships, in general, are interesting, loving and truly on an intellectual basis for now.  You may learn a lot about whatever it is you need to know.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Cleaning out the basement, garage and possibly the attic as well will help you get in the mood to move forward in many other areas of life.  It is a very good time for you to forget the past and move onto the future with hope in your heart.  Big changes occur in love life which would bring in someone into your life who is on your same path and falls within the parameters of what you feel an equal partner should be.  Friends and family can help you decide on your future, but the real issue is for you to make the decisions that may change your life forever.  Be sensitive to the needs of others, but do not fall back into the trap where all of your energy is outgoing and where you get nothing in return. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Ask questions to things that are bothering you and make sure you are satisfied with the answers. With time, things will be made clear.  Your emotional and logical self are in a championship fight with each other, but who will win?  You are also in a much better frame of mind and have many projects you wish to complete.  There is energy around you, good health, luck and a stimulating mind that will keep many on your friendships intact.  You have good friends who are loyal and trustworthy.  Don’t be afraid to ask them for assistance, opinions or advice.  Home life is stimulated with friends, neighbors and family so make the most of this fun time around you.  You need to reconnect with those that were special to you and know that sometimes things end for a reason.  The reason is to allow you the room to start in a brand-new direction.

July 2017 Horoscopes

One important date this month:  Fourth of July — Independence Day!!

A POSITIVE OUTLOOK

Can Make All the Difference!

In this crazy world of ours, there is a lot of the negativity broadcasted throughout our air waves, printed in the media or can be found on social media.   This negativity, in whichever form it takes, can drain our energy and keep it at extremely low levels for long periods of time. It is also true that the more we stay around negative people, our negativity multiplies, even on an unconscious level. This unfortunately drains your auric field, which in turn can lead to illnesses, depression and a lack of psychic protection. AND being you have so much negativity connected to you, all you can attract is the same energy while positive opportunities and adventures bounce off of you.

Stay around positive people or those who have an optimistic outlook even through despair and pain. Be open to inviting new friends or associates in to your life who seem to be on your same positive path towards enlightenment or looking for the good in life rather than the obstacles and problems. Do you realize that whatever you focus on will come to you?  So in essence, if you are worried about not having enough money for the mortgage and you dwell on it, you can be assured, you won’t have the money for it.  If you worry that your partner is cheating, you may well find out that he or she is cheating on you because you put the thought out there into the universe and you are getting what you believe.

Being a hypnotherapist, I truly believe that our affirmations can alter our perceptions and guide our minds to a calmer and more peaceful place, so here are a few of them:

  • I am relaxed and confident and in full control of my emotions at all times.
  • I am calm and relaxed and deal with only one issue at a time logically and efficiently.
  • I am ready to face any challenges that come my way with a positive attitude and loving heart.
  • I am grateful for all of my experiences which make me grow on a spiritual, physical and emotional level.
  • I am in full control of my destiny, my life and actions at all times.
  • Everything that I attract to me is for my positive growth, well-being and full potential as a human being.
  • For the good of all involved, I would like to attract health, wealth and happiness for me and my loved ones.

Write down whichever affirmations make sense to you and your particular situation and say them at least twenty times per day for a month; you will notice how you will be attracting blessings, positive energy and a happy life.  Have a wonderful future filled with all the possibilities that the universe has to offer.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Dealing with important papers and finances in general will be important now.  This is a time of activity, fun and excitement.  You will do many of the things that you haven’t had time to do before.  Women in your life will be your constant companions and you will reconnect with those who have become distant throughout the years.  You will also make a radical change in your appearance, perhaps your hair color, makeup, clothes and you will look fabulous.  You will also have some issues with your romantic partner which can be easily worked out if you talk things through.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

What a wonderful time to plan a vacation or figure out what new courses you may like to take in college or community classes for your own interests. Money is your focus now as you try to get on track with your finances or save for that large purchase that you have been hoping for.  Home life seems like fun and you will have much luck redecorating, painting, fixing up, and adding new accessories to your home.  It will give you such a mental lift.  Children and home life in general will go in a much better direction if you are not too stubborn to change a few of your ways.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Making important decisions about your life path is on your mind. What should I change in my life?  What should I do? New opportunities for love life start this month.  You may want to be cognizant of your words.  Do not let your mouth run wild before your brain kicks in.  Disagreements, short distance travel and communication can be tricky, so be sure you plan ahead.  Do not take any risks as this can be an accident-prone time if you are not paying attention to the details.  Also, this is a good time to see the big picture and let the petty issues and concerns be acknowledged and dealt with when you have the time.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Your career and status in life is important now.  What do you want to do with your career?  What are you going to do with the rest of your life? Relationships with your mother and/or women in your life will improve.  You have a better connection and understanding of the things that went on when you were young.  Home life is getting easier, better and much more positive so enjoy life and get out and do the things you’ve wanted to do. Tending your garden or practicing your hobby will be a lovely way to escape from life’s pressures.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Friends, groups and associations will become more active this month as you seek to get back out there in the social work and make new friends. Your enthusiasm for a job well done will win you the admiration and approval of those around you, especially in the work place.  Be sure to balance home life and your career as things seem to be a bit one sided at the moment.  A lot of activity and change is around you, so go for it.  If it’s something you would like to do or try, do it now before you change your mind.  Your emotions seem to be all over the place.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You feel as if you need to learn or renew some spiritual beliefs.  There also may be some issues regarding secrecy and lies. This is a good month to start a diet, become a vegetarian or improve your eating habits.  A bit of exercise will take you a long way to reaching your goal weight.  Take long walks, park far away from the store (so you can walk a little bit more) or jog with friends or better yet, take the dogs out for a walk.  You may feel somewhat bored or unappreciated, but things are looking up for a sunny relationship by the end of the year.  Always ask questions until you are satisfied with the answers.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

An image makeover is just what you need to keep yourself energized.  Try a new hair style or color and get some of the newer summer fashions. Stop being so sensitive and please make a decision that makes sense for you so you can move on in a very positive way. Many are thinking of changing personal or business partnerships. Things seem out of control and crazy, emotional and not the same.  Communicate with one another.  You need some time to think about the future with positive outcomes and positive energy all around you.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Finances need to be looked at and a solid budget needs to be put into place so you can accumulate some abundance in your future and will lift the heavy weight off of your shoulders. You have so many obligations and responsibilities that you don’t even know where to start.  Home life is interesting – some are moving, others are changing their homes and the bad blood that has kept you away from relatives in the past is moving away from you.  Reach out to your family and close friends any time you wish to feel safe, secure, stable and organized.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Relationships of all kinds are being tested.  You may want to get rid of some friendships and figure out what your role really is within the family.  There could be a change in your job or responsibilities, in your appearance, in a life style or just feeling emotionally free!  Travel plans seem to go smoothly.  However, don’t let unsettling or strange coincidences keep you from taking that vacation that you’ve always wanted.  You may take classes, go to lectures, or training in some new area of interest and you will love it.  New changes are always exciting and these will definitely be fun, exhilarating and needed.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Home life needs a boost whether it’s with your family or just in redecorating your surroundings to get your out of a slump. Career is very important now, so be sure that you work diligently and confidently.  Emotionally, you are ready for a change although you are not quite sure how to do it.  Creativity, artistic ability or a hobby will be a great pastime to take your mind off of your problems, worries, fears and doubts.  Find some joy in your life.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Finally, some fun and adventure will come into your life!  Go out and do whatever it is you’ve been putting off.  There are many friends who would welcome spending time with you doing interesting things whether it’s a new adventure, a class or lecture, or a pottery workshop.  Anything will be fun.  Be aware of those around you.  Not everyone is as honest and helpful as you and if you are not prepared for some sneaky tactics, you may feel betrayed or let down.  The affection you have for one another is a wonderful thing so nurture it and let it take flight!  Being grateful for all of your blessings now will bring bigger and better opportunities and positive results in the future.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

This would be the perfect time to make sure you not misunderstood, especially at your workplace.  It is also a time to take care of your health and get an annual physical if you haven’t had one in a while.  If you have an ailment, this is the time to deal with it as it won’t go away.  So many things are going on behind the scenes so just ask questions to find out the truth.  Do not take anything for granted. Look towards the future with confidence and passion since there is so much wonderful energy out there for you, and once you avail yourself to it, anything is possible.

April Horoscopes

by Vikki Anderson

Important dates this month:  All Fool’s Day (April Fools) on the 1st, Palm Sunday on the 9th, Passover on the 11th, Good Friday on the 14th, Easter Sunday on the 16th, Emancipation Day on the 17th, Tax Day on the 18th, and Earth Day and the April Lyrids Meteors on the 22nd.

Spring Has Sprung

Isn’t it great that we don’t have to schedule our chores and errands around the cold wintery weather any longer?  The worst that can happen is that it might rain but an umbrella takes care of that problem.  The rain is helping the grass grow and the flowers bloom to welcome in the new season for all of us.  Soon, we will have a plethora of flowers in rainbow colors brightening up the world and making each day one in which we feel obliged to smile at their beauty.  And this in turn, makes our day happier and more positive.

Spring is a wonderful time to start cleaning out the yard, opening up the windows and letting the new fresh air of spring inside of your home and life.

With the new energy of the season, it is important to clear out the old stale energy from the winter and breathe new life into your environment.

Here are a few ways to bring in positive energy into your yard and home.

  1. Place a small bird bath or water fountain near the front entrance.
  2. Hang beautiful chimes from trees, your deck or house gutters for a melodious sound to relax and calm you while you are outside.
  3. Hang up whirl-i-gigs to promote positive chi to circulate around your property and remove any stagnant areas of dead or dying chi.
  4. Plant bulbs, annuals, perennials in bright colors.  Follow the Bagua colors to correctly place the right color in the right area of your yard or garden.
  5. Burn white sage throughout your home, closets, bathroom, cellar, attic and around the house to ensure negative energy or negative chi is removed while keeping your windows in your home open to allow the negativity to escape from your surroundings.
  6. Place 60 MM aurora borealis round crystals in windows that get the morning sun so that rainbows will dance on your ceiling and walls.  Each room should have many colors in it for balanced energy.
  7. Get rid of things you no longer need, want or like, so that you will have a clutter free space to enjoy and come home to each evening without feeling overwhelmed by the clutter.
  8. A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your space and your mood.  Choose the proper color for the area of the ba gua you are painting; if you can’t, add a few decorative touches like pillows, books, candleholders, statues or paintings with the required colors in them.
  9. Let the light into your home.  Put up sheer curtains or pleated shades that can be opened from the top or bottom so you can maximize the sunlight and feel re-energized.

Any new additions or changes you bring into your home or yard will energize you and your whole family for the upcoming season.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

This is a truly great time to get your life in order.  Follow some of your dreams that you never had time for in the past; deal with issues on the job.  Are you really happy in your career?  Is it time to start a new adventure in your life?  Should you go for more educational studies to do exactly the job you want to do until you retire? Or are you ready to retire but are afraid that there won’t be enough money to get you through?  There are so many questions you are asking yourself now about your life and not only about work.  Home life seems to be going in a good direction, but is there something else you would like to add to it.  Perhaps redecorating for the new spring season may be important to you.  It may rejuvenate and motivate you to do all the things you have only dared to dream.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

You may find yourself thinking too much about things you can’t change or events from the past which may interfere with your sleep.  Your mind is racing and until you make some type of commitment to whatever it is you want in life (or a particular goal), this may continue.  It would be in your best interest if you stopped procrastinating as well.  Get those things done so positive energies and opportunities can stick to you.  Partnerships are being tested so perhaps you should find out if there are any issues within the relationship that you would like to address.  Everything will come out positive in the end.  Perhaps someone is not letting their true feelings known to a partner or close friend.  Remedy the situation.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You seem very emotional and sensitive now and you find yourself doing a lot of thinking about all areas of life.  You want to be able to have more fun, but you also want to finish projects.  You want to and need to be off on your own for a little while to decide what you want to do with your life.  You have wonderful ideas about your future, but you are hesitant to put your ideas into practice.  Health issues need to be taken care of as soon as you discover them or they may turn into something more serious.  Home life is doing okay and your home seems to be your refuge now, but there is something missing in your life.  Is it a purpose?  Another person?  A partner? Try to decide what you need to make your world complete and then start going after it.  You will be much happier in the end if you take action now.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

This is a time for so many changes but you are unsure in which direction you should go first!  Start with yourself.  If there is something you would like to change about yourself regarding your attitude, your appearance, or your environment, etc., why don’t you deal with those issues.  You will be much happier if you act now.  Career may be changing whether you want it to or not, so see what you have to do to make your work life stable and secure. Can you finish a project you pushed to the side?  Are there any positive changes you can make to save the company money?  Are you interested in starting your own business?  Partnerships may be difficult at times, but with a logical mind and calm demeanor, you can accomplish anything.  Don’t be so super sensitive now.  That won’t help anyone.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Finances are on your mind again.  How are you going to pay for this or that?  Should you buy a new purse, dress, outfit, furniture or whatever?  It is time that you keep what you have and make it work.  There are many second-hand furniture and clothes shops if you really need to buy something now.  Do not go over your budget counting on your next pay check to fill in the gap of the money you spent without budgeting or planning for it.  Work continues to go well and you may get a raise or promotion if you apply yourself now.  Make others aware of your plans to make work more streamlined or efficient.  You will reap the rewards.  Even though you may not always be in a positive frame of mind this month, just know that things are formulating for you to make a new life for yourself with your goals and aspirations coming true.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You seem very busy, but may not be getting much done.  You almost feel as if you are a hamster on a hamster wheel going around and around.  Make a plan and stick with it.  Do one or two things per day and at the end of the week or month, look at all you have accomplished.  Taking some time for rest and relaxation is important.  You are pushing yourself too far too fast.  Why not take time out of your busy day and read a magazine, take a walk, meditate or get a cat nap.  You can always get a timer at the dollar store and take a nap in your car at lunch time with plenty of time to get back to your desk on time.  Walking around the block or perhaps your company’s parking lot is also very therapeutic and gives you fresh air which helps your brain focus on the issues at hand.  Expressing yourself in art, science, or mathematics, etc., would also make you feel a great deal of accomplishment.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Balance is the issue as usual. You are doing quite well in all areas of life and even though there may have been some tiny setbacks, you come out the winner in almost every scenario.  You are blessed and have good fortune on your side now so do whatever it is you need to do to continue to make yourself happy.  Finding issues at work confuses you since you thought everything was going well, but it is not an important concern.  Just do your job to the best of your ability and you will be fine.  Partnerships can be tricky so be sure you are listening to what is being said rather than what you want to hear.  Being yourself keeps you centered and focused on what is really important in life.  Strive for your dreams so you can have everything you desire.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

There is so much going on in your life now.  There are things that need your attention and there are people who need to know they are important to you.  Remember to thank those who help you or do little things for you.  Your thanks will go a long way.  Loyalty is very important now.  Be strong and stay on the right side of the argument if you must get involved.  Integrity defines who you really are, so stay strong and do what’s right even when no one is looking.  Your attention to detail is legendary; however, now is a time where you may feel like resting or taking it easy.  Your drive is a bit slower but I encourage you to finish what you’ve started and make a list of things you want to do for the future.  You can accomplish anything you want to, so make plans to do your best and to accomplish wonderful things for your family, friends and yourself.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

This is a really busy time for you as you plan to do a million things at once.  You are thinking of studying a new field perhaps or a new modality to broaden your horizons.  Volunteering is also something that you may wish to look into, whether it’s in a hospital, church, animal shelter or the like.  You feel as if you can be of service to others now and want to help.  Sagittarians have many unexpected adventures ahead of them which will change their opinions on some matters.  It is a time for fun, traveling, doing something different and being curious about life.  This is a time for dealing with home life issues so that your future is more secure and you won’t have to guess about anyone’s intentions.  Deal with things that you pushed on the back burner since you can’t move forward if you have a lot of unfinished business from the past.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Partnerships play an important part of your month now.  This is not only romantic partnerships, but those with friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances and neighbors.  You have been doing too much for so many people that it is time for you to change your strategy and let others do things for you.  That’s a new concept, isn’t it?  You should only have to help certain people and you really have to learn how to say no to those who abuse your good nature.  Tell them you are busy and will call again when you are free.  Have a chore for them to do in return when they ask for your help.  In that way, they may stop asking you to do things for them because they don’t want to help you back!  Changes, upheavals and drama can change some relationships, but whichever ones are leftover will be the ones made of gold.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Taking care of so many things overwhelms you.  Be uncharacteristic and do one thing at a time and finish it rather than starting so many new projects which go undone.  Updating wills, taxes, important papers, NDRs, and power of attorney paperwork will take a little time, but will be appreciated if something unexpected happens.  Money issues may be of a small worry, but you know there is money coming in so stop making money a concern.  It will work itself out in the end.  Career continues to be busy, but it is a secure job, so unless you are offered the job of a lifetime with a great salary, benefits and perks, stay at your current employment for a while longer.  It’s a job you can do in your sleep, but you benefit your co-workers by staying there.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Spirituality or esoterica is important now.  You want to expand your mind and understand so many things.  Creativity, art, science and anything that interests you will help you relax and will extinguish that thirst for knowledge.  You may be interested in traveling or setting up plans for the summer or fall and it would be a good time to go on a much needed and wanted vacation.  Being under stress is not good for anyone, so it is important that you allot time to rest, play, meditate or walk around the neighborhood to release some of the stress that clings to you.  A healthy diet and exercise will help you work around this and make you feel one hundred times better in all that you do.  Some karmic lessons may find their way into this month, so learn the lesson so you don’t have to repeat it again and again in other lifetimes.
