Tarot Decans & Planetary places

THE JUNE SOLSTICE, ECLIPSE & NODES OF FATE  JUNE 21, 2020

This post shows how the current planetary placements are located in various Decans. Astrological Decans are the 10 degree sections of each of the Zodiacal (30 degree) Signs. These are interpreted by definitions of the Tarot Minor cards (2 – 10). Use your Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck to lay out the present positions of the planets onto a zodiacal wheel and ‘read’ the AstroWeather forecast!

These are the current correlations for this Historic Solstice and Eclipse 0* Cancer starting point from Sunday’s Annular “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse. This is our new beginning;

“War is over, if you want it” reminds us that the war of daily struggle for survival can be upgraded now. The work of equality and JUSTICE is in the zeitgeist and will, eventually, prevail.

MOON & SUN @ 5 WATER – The zero point of Cancer reflects the 5 of Cups Tarot. This is a major reset point from which the next cycle of 26,000 years begins. This huge turning point is shown as one with many regrets, the image of a person pining for 3 of their 5 cups, that are spilled on the ground. While shown on the opposite shore of their home, we see a bridge to cross before safe space is found. Collectively, we mourn for the way things are, which is not congruent with American ‘ideals’. There is a home for all, but we must cross that bridge, together.

When we awaken to the reality of the present moment, we may be depressed that the state of JUSTICE is still not resolved, and yes, much effort is still needed to move into a peaceful state. Seclusion, delays and setbacks are part of our current situation, but it gives us time to do inner work of discovering what it is we really want to accomplish, and HOW we want to go about creating an equitable world for ALL. We may feel tired, sad or troubled with anxiety, but we can learn valuable lessons from this introspective time. Our regrets paint the way toward a future with fewer regrets, if we are courageous enough to travel that path! Good luck is brought to those repairing and replacing damaged ways of living. So onward, with momentum!

NORTH NODE – @ 8 AIR the Dragon’s Head points the way toward our goals. In this case, it has recently moved into the 0* degree point of Gemini, which is reflected in the 8 of AIR Tarot card. The 8 of Air signifies a period of releasing the blindfolds that keep us from seeing the TRUTH. When we are surrounded by many ideas, signified by 8 swords forming a barrier around a blindfolded one, the truth may be hard to discern. Our mission, should we decide to accept it, and I hope you will, is to step out of our slumber, cut the ties that bind us to the old ways of living, and tear off our blindfolds, so that we can awaken to a new day dawning!

VENUS @ 8 AIR- The alchemy of truthfulness will begin the process of healing. The purity of Venus cycles starting here is seen in the movement of her five pointed cycle and the magical tune of hummingbirds’ flitting wings tells us to ‘fine tune our ears’ to hidden messages that may come through our subconscious mind. Don’t be afraid to hear new ideas. You must not always believe everything you think! Give yourself time to adjust to new realities and strive toward the heights.

MERCURY @ 3 WATER; indicates a period of joyfulness, bound via the camaraderie of hard times survived. The dilemma we faced has had much quicker results than we had even hoped for, and many changes have been made, for the improvement of society. Keep up the good fight. Walk peacefully & proud! Mercury will soon move from this spot, and regain it’s commonly bumpy road, so cherish synergy now. The power of peaceful, collective voices will continue to sound amidst the background of cacophony for at least 6 months. Carry on.

MARS @ 4 FIRE – shows us that we are in a place of slowing passions. It is time to wait on wisdom to guide us. Take this time to rest and regroup, process recent events and commit to future action. Hold off making judgements, sleep on important decisions and consider all of your many options at this time. Keep your fire of passion alive with embers that will flame the new causes that will come; Justice. Peace. Renewal.

JUPITER & PLUTO in the last decan of Capricorn, and SATURN Rx headed back to join them, indicates the 4 of Earth, another period of slowdown regarding financial concerns. Unexpected business transactions may bring about sales of unforeseen items, possibly bankruptcy of brick and mortar operations, cancelled or postponed travel, and trying to create “safe” places to invest. Forming new ways to exchange energetic transactions, such as bartering, may become more common. Surprising disclosures come to light by long-held traditional forms crumbling under revealed truths. Facing death and creating new directions regarding business process’. The re-birthing process has begun. BREATHE! and PUSH. We can’t avoid the inevitable outcome. Do your best to visualize a new Earth, a new way of living.

URANUS @ 5 EARTH – brings challenges and fluctuations in the physical realm. A 5 card reminds us to take stock of our resources and hold faith throughout change. Materially poor or ill people find themselves navigating the sudden dire straits as a crisis unfolds. Their hope is to find sanctuary in religious shelters or charitable foundations. So give timely aid to those now, who would otherwise fall through the social ‘safety net’. We are all one human family. We each deserve freedom from fear. Love one another. Strive to DO GOOD.

SOUTH NODE @ 8 FIRE – indicates the place where we, as a collective, are coming from. The positive change of minds, engendered by the heart, propel us from a place where we desire a speedy change~ to take deliberate steps toward a sustainable, deeper and lasting philosophy. People are scrambling to find new ways to eek out income because usual ways of managing income are not working. All around, there are opportunities to connect with networks that may foster a sense of community through service. Things seem unsettled now, but are heading toward eventual success. Be patient. Keep the faith. When we work together, we all win.~

Hermoine meets Hermeticism IRL

It’s a Hermitic scholars life!

Hello New Subscribers!

~Just a note to let you know that I’m currently working on the artwork and notebooks that will accompany my “9 KEYS TAROT’. This is more than just another slant on a Tarot deck. It is a teaching deck of tarot cards that employ 9 esoteric systems!

As a Metaphysical student, scholar of 40 years and teacher for over 20 years, I employ all I’ve learned into a condensed presentation, so that you can learn at your own pace, through various learning styles, at home, using my 9 Keys Tarot deck and various PDF workbooks.

The 9 KEYS TAROT is based in the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition, using recognizable features from this primary deck. It includes Kabbalah as taught in the Reform Judaism tradition, including meaning of Hebraic Letters, Spiritual Astrology, Runes, Numerology and Sacred Geometry, Totem Animals, and many hidden meanings in the artwork and color choices.

I hope to present a series on Hebrew Letters starting soon…so stay tuned! #Happy2020

#2020 Let’s hold space for each other as we walk each other home! #WeCanDoThis

YHVH or God’s “Pinball Wizard”

The holy Tetragrammaton consists of the letters YHVH, and means ‘Jehovah’ or the unpronounceable name of God.

The letters themselves have several meanings with subtle differentiations; for example, the letter Y is pronounced Yud or Yod, as there are no specific vowels in Hebrew.

YUD is a spark, a spiritual flame, the indwelling Spirit, the Holy Spirit and YOD, means the finger of God (as an astrological configuration), which also means a direction, your purpose, and your path. (Picture Pentecostal flames of Spirit on the heads of disciples speaking in tongues.)

The letter H, pronounced Heh, in noun form, means ‘window’ and in esoterically, word, thought, and idea. When you put these two meanings together you may grasp the meaning of ‘an idea working like a window of the mind’.

The letter V, pronounced Vav, as a noun, means ‘nail’ and metaphorically means the ‘joiner,’ which functions like the word ‘and,’ that esoterically means ‘that which gives meaning’ so that Understanding can occur.

Taking these three letters’ meanings together, we see that YHVH can mean ‘Inspired Ideas And Inspired Words’. This, in short, is the definition of ‘divine’ and ‘holy’.

An interesting insight of the 9 Keys Tarot is that the #1 card is the Magi, short for Magician. This is an Initiate of hidden knowledge, who creates magic in the world. He takes inspired ideas and transforms them into physical manifestations by way of spoken word and action. Just as we all get ideas and pursue them until our goals are reached.

The suffix of the word Heh, however is feminine, so the word Heh could take on an added meaning of ‘the male female’ idea.

The #2 card is the Muse, who takes initial input she receives from the Magi and translates it for their mutual Understanding. She is the Subconscious, to his Conscious mind. Once this mutual agreement has been reached, they both work with the Source of inspiration to begin to manifest on this Earth plane.

The word ‘Vav’, as a suffix, is male and gives the meaning to the ‘male female’ Understanding. When combined in the supernal, or highest, triangle of the Tree of Life glyph, aka the Godhead, we see that the Yud – insight, combines with the male female idea, and the male female understanding to become a closed circuit of energy that forms a triune Mind of Wisdom and Understanding.

It is by each of us discovering the anima to our animus, and our animus to our anima, that we become whole beings. Only after this merging happens can we heal the split within, allowing us to rise to higher frequencies of our Higher Self, which is egoless, observing and wise. In this state, the Divine within us becomes activated and we become co-creators with God. ~Namaste.

One day I’ll have a POWER POINT to present this cool idea, until then…

*Picture a pin-ball machine where the ball falls from the highest sphere, dropping down to the right. The flipper is activated and the ball is shot over to the left side, at which time the flipper returns the ball to the right where it is projected back to the outlet it came from, but this time there is a barrier that pushes the ball back to the lower left, where it is pushed downward to the center after the supernal triangle is activated – and lights up! Wheee~

4 of Fire – Flaming Roses and Tortoise noses

4 of FIRE – Aries Decan iii – April 10 – 20, 2019

Cessation of Action: Patience. Consider an image of a desert tortoise picking its way through the burnt brush of the desolation. Where a fire passed over, determined seeds have popped out of their shells to re-fertilize the desert floor with beauty once the Spring rains fall. The tortoise is our image of a Stable Will that seeks Harmony. Even with the fires around him, he maintains a steady pace, sniffing at the wind for direction. He is a survivor!

KEY WORDS: Seek Harmony, Patience, and Stability. Learn to govern your Will, for once you govern yourself, you will know how to govern, motivate and attract others. Embody a benevolent spirit to wield passion wisely.

ASTROLOGICAL SYMBOLS: The period of early Spring yields to Taurus at the end of this decan. Now is the time to observe which tools you have at your side to help you plan for your seasonal harvest.

Venus is the ruler of this period so her use of glamour and enchantment prove to be even more magnetic than other times. Venus is meeting up with Neptune on Wednesday, April 10th, for a seductive and romantic rendezvous. Enjoy yourself but don’t buy into lovely promises that can’t be delivered.

Wednesday, April 10ththe Sun is square to the nodes of the Moon and that leads to a condition of being at the ‘crossroads’ about where to spend your time and energy. Take time to consider your options well, for in 10 days things will be ready to burst forth! The Sun squares Saturn, offering many paths from which to choose. Mercury in Pisces is in aspect to Pluto in Capricorn so it becomes easier for you to voice your desires to create beauty through service. Considering how you’d change the world, if you only could, may be a good mantra to use over the next few days. Because you just could do it!

Mercury squares Jupiter Friday, the 12thand just after that Venus is sextile to Saturn, which means that your message of Hope and Beauty can be published with good results!

Saturday, April 13 finds a definite resolution when the Sun squares Pluto. Pow! Eris is involved with the mix of the ‘bad boyz’ so there may be some TRUTH that is revealed, in a not too polite fashion.

Sunday, April 14 shows a more pleasant day with the Sun trine to Jupiter. Things will look brighter and hopeful this Palm Sunday.

And Tuesday, April 16th, Mercury moves out of his shadow, bringing more ease to conversations, sales, and marketing processes. If you have planned for a large project this will be the day to BEGIN IT!

Move forward to the Full Moon at 29* Libra on Friday, April 19thfor a lovely day of Venus amusing the Sun before it slips into Taurus the following day. Let’s hope the weather holds so we can make this ‘Good Friday’ into a Great one! Blessings~

10 of Water – PISCES Decaniii – Happiness

10 of Water – Pisces Decan iii – March 9 – 19 – 9 KEYS TAROT

“Man’s search for Happiness can create a false sense of urgency, whereas the presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.” -me

When we are free to express ourselves and our quest for individuation is complete, what kinds of emotions will we see manifesting in our lives?

These are the questions that the third Decan of Pisces brings.  Typically, this card exemplifies the attainment of Emotion, which I interpret as ‘Happiness’. What emotion is on your mind right now? How do you see yourself going about attaining it?

Astrologically, we are in a rather confused state of energies as Mercury is retrograde until the end of the month, Mar 28. Uranus has just ingressed into Aries for the next 8 years, bringing chaos and sudden changes to the forefront of our frontal lobes. “Be prepared to be startled, yet learn to regroup after emotional shocks”, is the lesson ahead.

Neptune’s influence will create even more confusion about truth and lies, so remember to check your media sources carefully before jumping to conclusions. Learning to return to our core self, is a secret to remaining calm in the midst of chaos.

Learning self-soothing techniques, such as EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique or ‘tapping’ exercises may help you to confront overwhelming emotions and recenter yourself.

Try this link on YouTube; Nick Ortner has good video demonstrations of EFT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRfLTQjJhp0

The intelligence of this Decan is to learn to appreciate what good is present in the current moment. ‘Presence of mind can create an oasis in the desert of the soul.’ Namaste’ ~K

9 of Water – Pisces Decan ii

9 of Water – Fish

PISCES DECAN ii March 1 – 9 / TAROT 9 of Water: Conformity
Key Words #Cooperation #Indulgence #Pleasure #Conformity #Ideals
 
March 1 begins the pent-ultimate chapter in the Wheel of the Year. There are only two more Decans until the Spring Equinox, which begins a new Solar Year. So this month is mutable and creates space for many changes to occur!
ASTROLOGICALLY
March 1 Venus gladly enters Aquarius, after a month of configurations with Saturn and Pluto today’s square to Mars/Uranus is more positive and uplifting. Uranus provides the impulse for change and Mars lights it’s fuse. Consider it like early December, when you’re asked what you’d like for Christmas. You’re going to receive something, so are you going to ask for something you especially like or need? Get busy making wish lists and clearing space for the new to enter.
 
March 5, 2019 Mercury goes retrograde, causing us all to Rethink, Remodel, Renew our ideas and priorities. (I sure hope to get a boost in creativity like I usually do with retrograde Mercury, as this Winter seems to be hanging on longer than expected!) Mercury will be swimming upstream until March 28, 2019 so be sure to back up your pc’s and be ready for travel plans and meetings to meet with delays and snafus until then.
 
March 6, 2019 is a significant day, as Uranus moves into Taurus for the next 8 years. When Uranus moved into Aries on 11 March 2011, the Fukushima nuclear reactor began to melt down. Let’s hope whatever volcanos, earthquakes or landslides shake-up, they do it in unoccupied places and resolve quickly. Uranus affects the electric power-grid and Taurus represents the Earth, our comfort zone and pleasures. When they get together, we may see ‘electrified earth’. Whatever happens, I hope that the next few years will bring us legislation that protects our ENVIRONMENT!
 
March 6 is also the New Moon in Pisces, so the Sun and Moon, and this time, Neptune meet at 15* Pisces. This is a key degree, as it is right in the center of Pisces 30* house. Spirituality will be on the forefront as this occurs on the same day as chaos maker Uranus moves into a new home. It would be an ideal time for a world-wide collective prayer!
 
MARDI GRAS is March 5 and Ash Wednesday begins 40 days of Lent. I see Lent as a period for head to toe cleaning;
(Earth) Take time to do some Spring-cleaning and donate what you don’t use to someone who may need it. Start a diet and exercise routine. Fix things around the house and peruse your garden magazines.
(Water) Look at your relationships, especially the ones that are most intimate to you, to see how you function in this role. It’s a good time to set new boundaries and have gentle talks about topics that could improve. Be sure to give before you ask to receive.
(Fire) Next, try to take time to meditate on what your drives and motives are in life. When you can connect with your heart’s desires you can move along smoothly in the right direction and things will begin to go your way more easily. And lastly,
(Air) observe and purify your thinking. Try to catch yourself if you say things without thinking. Be mindful of what choices you make and what filters you have on the input you receive from outside sources.
 
TIPS By the time Easter rolls around, 6 weeks from now, you should have securely embedded new habits and practices in your life, if you are mindful now. The Universe is aligned for us to create new, hopeful thinking now, so take advantage of it!
 
VISUAL Think of a school of fish and how they swim in tight formation. They move in a collective way to protect one another, yet fall into the same nets together. There are times to act collectively, for large undertakings, yet we need to be mindful not to fall into routine thinking, just because it’s easy.# Namaste’ ~K

Chiron enters Pisces Decan i

8 of WATER  SATURN in PISCES  Planets at 0 -10* PISCES

Feb 19 – 28, 2019 9 KEYS TAROT BEAVER AND NET

Keywords for this first Decan in Pisces; #Emotional #Instinct #Creativity #Reminisce #Sorrow #Remembrances #Coping #Skills #Legacies #Changes #Intuition #Intellect #Integration #Growth

Decan Theme; Healing old psychological and physical wounds through forgiveness and releasing ties to the past, which are hurtful. It’s time to learn new skills and develop your talents. Remember our past and know that we are stronger together.

Planets and Transits;

The Sun enters Pisces on February 18th, which stirs our vital energy toward creativity, being flexible and compassionate. This sets up a period of emotional sensitivity.

The big news is that CHIRON enters the sign of ARIES, on Feb 18, 2019, EST which will affect wounds around our personal and collective IDENTITY as well as give the collective a new way to perceive how things are done. Chiron will be in Aries for about 8 years indicating the new ways of thinking and perceiving that are on their way.

Chironis a Centaur, half human and half horse, so he was part deity and part wild. He depicts our self-wounding and was revered as a great teacher of humanities. He was fathered by Zeus, as a horse, and born of a nymph, who wounded him by rejecting her half horse offspring. Chiron was adopted by Apollo, who taught him about medicine, music, philosophy, and prophecy. His lesson to us is about civilizing our wildness yet remaining powerful in order to share our hard-won wisdom with others.

Chiron went on to mentor sons of Greek Kings, including Jason of the Argo voyage, Asclepius, father of healing and medicine, Achilles and Hercules, famous warrior heroes who accomplished miraculous feats.

It’s interesting how Chi and Rho are also the symbols the Greeks used to indicate the name of Christ. You may have seen the symbol of the intertwined P and X on some churches. Christ and Chiron are the Archetypal wounded healers.

Saturn rules this Decan giving a somber approach to how we work collectively. We need to begin work that will pay off over time by dedicating ourselves to community works. As beavers tirelessly build their lodges, by placing one stick upon the other to construct a shelter against the elements, so we too, must decide how to build for the future. It’s a good time to begin a healthier lifestyle and dietary plan, lay plans for retirement or your legacy and deciding which trees you will plant this Spring.

We will have a Super Full Moon, because the Moon is at its closest to the Earth this year at 0* Virgo on February 19th. The Sun conjuncts Regulus, fixed star of Kings, during this Full Moon. Some may have delusions of grandeur that startle us into action now. If you wish to be noticed, start a business or perform on a reality show, now’s the time to do it.

Venus continues her negotiations with Saturn, on Monday the 18th, and then with Pluto on Saturday, the 23rd. She softens the harshness usually engendered by these, the elder philosopher and the tyrannical bulldozer driver. A change will come but it may be wearing velvet gloves.

General forecast; This Decan looks to be rather somber, with time for introspection and intimate conversations between friends and family. Be sure to tell your loved ones what they mean to you and make time to get together as often as you can. Share your life stories around the fire and pass on your wisdom to the young. Reminisce while listening to the music of your youth. The last time these planets were in similar configurations was 1968. Remember that? Blessings ~K

Metaphysical Me

About Metaphysical Me…

One of my most impactful experiences with spirituality/religion was being ‘failed’ from the second year of my three year Lutheran Catechism class. I told my minister and vicar that ‘God doesn’t fail people from church!’. They agreed with me and after a year’s sabbatical and the subsequent firing of this teacher who failed kids in church, I asked many pointed questions, finished my lessons, got confirmed and left.

In college, my most influential classes were the three-term Shakespeare series, learning how to SEE and draw from an artists viewpoint (that was quite esoteric) and an Introduction to Comparative Religions. Then I took a term off and studied with Mormon missionaries, read the Bhagavad-Gita, Tibetian and Egyptian Books of the Dead, the Tao te Ching, and many other metaphysical books. This lit my Spiritual Fire and I’ve been devouring these books ever since!

(See recommended book list) —> Archives

Later, upon becoming a Unitarian Universalist, I had the opportunity to learn more about many religions and experience them firsthand in “Neighboring Faiths” Sunday school classes. After teaching students for 8 weeks, I accompanied groups of children to Buddhist center feasts, Catholic mass, a Jewish temple, and Pagan ceremonies. Over the years my family has participated in Kwaanza, Hindu Festival of Lights, and Hanukkah festivities.

I homeschooled my kids for 8 years founded on a History-based Wholistic education, of which I wrote my own curriculum. I based my lessons and exams on textbooks from various points of view and encouraged open-minded discussions about the reasons for the author’s points of view and their veracity. We first studied World Geography & World Religions as a comprehensive introduction to becoming ‘Citizens of the World’.

As homeschoolers, we practiced exercises by Rudolf Steiner and read Classic English literature, Great Books, Historic Fiction and books of Cultural Literacy from all continents. We read ancient philosophers and discussed their subsequent roles in modern society.

I was engaged with esoteric studies for many years before co-leading a Women’s spirituality group. We incorporated many facets from various spiritual traditions, and each woman encouraged to bring her gifts and experiences to share with the group.

After leaving that position, my 10-year interest in the Kabbalah, led me to study more intently and take a year-long webinar class with two Rabbis. I learned much about the Hebrew Mystical traditions from a Jewish Reform perspective. I found the Kabbalah to be THE foundation for the many esoteric paths I had studied since my 20’s.

Today I practice Tai chi, Chi Gong, Kundalini Yoga and write ‘Morning Pages’ as is recommended by Julia Cameron in her transformational book, “The Artist’s Way”. I participated and led classes in “The Artist’s Way” and discovered that it was a book written (by and) for the Enneagram Type #4 personality, the ‘Artist’. That’s when I decided to create workbooks for the other 8 Enneagram personality types that I call, “Integrated Spiritual Practices”. TBA

I’ve studied and used the Tarot as well for many years. I started noticing the esoteric ‘threads of Truth’ that run throughout all the systems and traditions that I’ve engaged with and noticed their Archetypes can be found in pictoral symbolism on the Tarot.

I’ve created a unified system that is based on a lesser-used form of the Tree of Life Glyph. I see it as the original glyph of Kabbalah before the ‘fall’ of man. I have placed my own version, the “9 Keys Tarot” cards onto this Tree in a unique way as a blueprint to help people ascend to their Higher Self – closer to a state of Spiritual perfection. This corresponds to 9 Esoteric systems, which is no small feat!

Metaphysics describes both the ‘Art of Living’ & the ‘Science of Life.’      I hope that my writing will encourage you to look within yourself and begin what Plato called, “The Great Work” of personal understanding and wisdom. After all, it’s our once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn, grow and evolve our Souls while we are incarnate beings. Look within!

Namaste’ ~K

Aquarius Decan i – Hawk

#9KeysTarot Hawk- TAROT 5 OF AIR – Aquarius Decan i January 11 – 21

Aquarius is an AIR sign, so I describe it’s energy like a beleaguered Hawk. It is the number 5 of the Minor Arcana which is the point where first doubts or interruptions occur on the path toward the manifestation of ideas. This is a 5 of the AIR suit, and my Hawk has been getting disturbed by a cluster of four Starlings chasing him. I always wonder why little birds pester larger raptors as they do…I suppose it is to drive them away from their nesting sites. But they carry on for sooo long until the poor raptor flies far, far away~ still hungry.

It would seem that an individual rabbit or mouse would make an easier meal. Is that a message to us; to prioritize our goals and take ‘bite-sized’ portions to work on for our long-term projects? It could be!

The creatures of the AIR represent ideas to me. The mind is always coming up with thoughts to consider, some are fresh and new while others are old, worn out retreads that tend to leave us feeling stuck. In that case, we can hope that the Starlings in our mind WILL drive away those old raptors until they flee “out of sight, out of mind!” If you get stuck in old retread ideas, call in the Starlings by doing things that will temporarily distract you from those old thoughts. Then you can come back to your projects with a fresh attitude.

In this part of the year, we have just started playing out our New Year’s resolutions, and some of them may already have had a bit of poking and prodding. Others may have flown off, far, far away so that even the Hawk’s Shadow can no longer be seen!! Let’s hope you can get back on track and keep dis-raptors from entering your dreams!

Astrologically, the Sun will have just entered the Sign of Aquarius and there is a gathering of planets crowding around the Lunar Eclipse this Monday. The message for the masses is brought by the beneficial planets, Venus and Jupiter, aligning for goodwill and expanded peace. They are trine, in a pleasant relation to Mars, the energizer. Later they square Saturn, the rule maker who represents Father Time. It seems some good new rules can be laid down that will serve mankind over time, but with the eclipse of the Moon, our emotions will get jumbled by the crowd of competing energies. Surrender to the Ego-directed way of doing things and be guided by the Spirit.

Why must there always be ‘push back’ for the changes that support the many, rather than the few? Let’s keep our keen eyesight on the prize that waits in the distance. RID YOURSELF OF WHAT HOLDS YOU BACK! Focus on the long-term goals with small, daily steps toward it.

On the individual front, it is time to become the Star-ling of your own screenplay and act out the new role you have been dreaming about! Grab your sweats and head back to the gym. No one will care that your socks don’t match. You may feel encouraged to be surrounded by others aiming for better health in the New Year, just like you. START OVER EVERY DAY with your Intentions. Lather. Wash. Repeat.

HERE’S TO FRESH STARTS this Decan! Individually, then collectively, let’s add to the

“Change we want to see in the Word!” ~Cheers!
