Astrology-and-Your-Birth-Chart by Gill Potter

I liked this article and its simplicity...enjoy


What Does it All Mean?

The Birth chart or horoscope is a picture or snapshot of the heavens when observed from a certain point on the Earth and the picture changes every few minutes. That's why it’s unique and can clearly show exactly what it is you came to Earth to be and do. When its interpreted from your soul's perspective it’s very illuminating and can help you to understand more of your life path and journey.
As Carl Jung who studied and worked with astrology said, “Whatever is born or done this moment of time has the qualities of this moment of time.”

Sharon's Take Update

How have you been feeling this past month? It has been the first time that we have had this long of break in the solar flares and other sun activity in a few years, we have had only two solar flares so far, one of the 1st and one on the 9th and only a few active days in between, the rest have been normal. I can't actually remember the last time we had more than a few days of normal in a month. We have had almost 2 weeks of it straight of normal which ended by becoming active on the 24th. This is the longest period of normal that I have seen in years... years! That is amazing. I am so very much guided to add that using this time wisely as we prepare for August will help you immensely.  I feel this huge wave of energy coming and it can be your friend or foe... it is up to you to decide.

I am not usually one to advise people to prepare for a big shift as so many times in the past I heard this message, prepared for big shifts, and saw little change beyond the few days following and yet I feel there is one coming that will be monumental for many and my advise is to take advantage of it. I do recall a few other times when I felt this and I did see those who were doing their work lives shift in big ways so I shall be sure to take up this opportunity and get myself together over the next week.

For me it has been such a busy time, with a new puppy and my granddog Wesley, I have been extra busy and I do find that it is easier to get things done right now with this break and that my focus is easier to keep. It has been an odd feeling to have this long of a quiet time energetically speaking and it has been nice at the same time. However I have been asked several times if I am sure that mercury retro has gone off and it has although I too have had that same thought and checked the sun's status for a flare, only to find it calm. I am truly not clear on what is causing this influence and so perhaps one of my astrologer friends will enlighten me so that I can share or pass it on to you. 

I am not an astrologer as it seems too complicated for me, I do however know my own chart and think that is important as it is a snapshot of your birth and what you planned to do in this lifetime much like your birth numbers and they do not really change. (I say do not really change as there is evidently a new astrology that uses a recalculation taking into consideration physics understanding of the universe... and it does affect my rising sign because it shifted within seconds of my sometimes I get an Aries rising and others give me a Pisces rising... Anyway, the site I would like to share with you is astrolabe as they will give you a free print out of your chart and where the planets are for you.  

Anyway, enjoy this down time and if you are doing nothing during it, that is okay as it is most important to just be true and honour you. August should bring us an interesting time, so try to be prepared energetically.

12 Love Lessons with the Angels

12 Love Lessons with the Angels

Working with your angels can help you expand your understanding of your world, those around you and how to work better with all of life’s challenges and find balance, peace and harmony for yourself. Here are 12 Love Lessons from the angels to help you to master and gain a higher understanding of the world and your place within it.

Unconditional Love has No other Agenda

Develop your empathy so that you better understand things and at a deeper level. You are then able to look at the situation from its truth and to also understand what is most important, and that is that only love is real. “
I give and receive love unconditionally.”

Love has Many Forms

It is okay for you to choose how you express your love. Open your awareness to the treasures of the world around you. Everyone shows their love in different ways and when you become aware of the many forms of love you become aware of the underlying aspect of all life. Be okay with love and be open to its true expression in its many forms as long as it is based in Love.
“I see the loving actions of others being expressed all around me through thoughts and feelings of unconditional love and the actions of service of others to everyone and to all that is.”

Be Pure of Heart

Be true to yourself. Let go of anything inauthentic and all activities that do not mirror your highest intentions and desires for yourself. If there is something that is not working in your life at this time, be willing to release it and start again. It is safe for you to be you and you are reminded that a spark of Creator light dwells within your sacred heart.
“It is safe for me to be my authentic and true self. I am a being of Love.”

Love is the Journey

Awaken your sense of awe and wonder. Every day you are making new discoveries about yourself, your life, and your world. Awaken your sense of awe and wonder as you explore and play with the Universe. Keep your heart and your mind open to fresh information and new experiences that are available to you and see what new discoveries each day can bring.
“My life is a wonderful journey of continued self-discoveries”

All Prayers are Heard and Answered

Your prayers are always being heard and always being answered. Sometimes you may not feel this way, because the answer comes in unexpected ways. The Angels request that you be extra observant. Notice everything that you hear, say, think, and feel. Be especially alert to help that comes to you, and be sure to accept that help. You do deserve this assistance, and many times God enlists people to act as Earth Angels who bring you answers that you seek.
“When I ask for assistance, I remember to become extra observant for the messages and signs designed to assist me in making the best choices for myself and my life.”

Sharon's Take July 2014 ~ Balancing the Changes

Sharon's Take July 2014 ~ Balancing the Changes by Sharon Taphorn

This year is all about us finding our balance in the new energy of the post 2012 shifts. This year is all about change and adapting to new ways of doing things and finding what is working for us now. Many of us are finding ourselves amidst changes in our work and our homes and for some of us that is a new experience even though we have been doing this work for a long time and thought we were through the major life changes and well, they truly have only just begun. 

It is now up to each one of us to decide how we want to experience the coming shifts and clearly decide what direction we want this next wave of creator force energy that is coming though will bring to us. We are heading into a cycle of opportunity and advancement of epic proportion, so get ready, grab your board and practice so when it comes you are ready to get on it and ride that wave with the precision of the true master you are becoming. 

Mercury Retro is off tomorrow and I am sure we can all breath a collective sigh of relief although it might take a few days to begin its path back to normal. I did loose my blow dryer but will not through it out for a week just in case it starts working again lol. We also had a solar flare today, M-class, so that might affect a few of us. Being a holiday in Canada today (our birthday...mine too) it is usually a little more low key and here with Stampede weekend over, it feels like a nice back regardless for us.

A big change in our lives is the addition of a new baby! I got this little bundle of joy for my birthday. She is 3 months old, her name is Pixie and she is a Shitzu-Yorkie cross. Bella is not too sure about this bouncy baby thing, but I am sure she will adjust and they will be sisters soon enough. I have had to totally adjust my morning routine which means that I am behind a lot these days and each morning I seem to be later and later lol. We will find our balance amidst the changes soon enough. Not only do I have this wonderful new bundle of joy, I am going to be looking after my grand dog and grand cat for a few weeks so this month should be filled with many grand adventures and perhaps a need for a vacation myself when things calm back down lol, or that in it self will feel like a vacation lol. 

I also started a new job in the last few weeks. I had the interview Wednesday, they offered me the position on Thursday evening and I started Friday Fast indeed and during a mercury retrograde. I found it amusing that event though I already started, my contract couldn't be signed or initiated until the next month and with the holiday, it won't be available to sign until after mercury retro. I am the new co-ordinator for the Meals on Wheels program. It is a lot of work from my home office with a bit of structure and I get to go out and spread love and sparkle on for people who need it. It fits in perfect with our lifestyle and my work. I am really looking forward to this opportunity and what it brings to me and I can bring to it. So, again, I am finding the balance amidst my shifting life on many levels and these are indeed the changes I have been working towards creating for myself and I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life. 

So, should we expect for this wonderful month of July energetically? Well, buckle your seat belt and hang on for the ride! The image I am being given is us dancing on spinning logs so decide now what you wish to experience and choose wisely for yourself. Overall, enjoying the outcome of the seeds you are planting should be what is foremost and then nurturing that project, or the whole garden and watch as it takes root and begins to grow. 

There could be some unexpected news that seems to through a few of you a bit off kilter either personally, or perhaps globally and this could keep things a bit challenging while you rebalance yourself and things, but know that this is the very thing that will be the push over to something entirely new that is more of your choosing. Again.. the messages "Choose Wisely For Yourself" keeps coming up, so this is the time to really get clear on what it is you want and begin to build those dreams in the earth and not just in the sky. The time has come for action and grounding it into the physical reality so you can finally begin to live the experiences you know that are part of what you came here to experience. 

You are the magicians awakening to your true selves. You have the strength and the courage to go forth with your hearts wide open and begin to change this world to one that seems more kind and loving. In truth it has always been there, it is just what we have not been looking at what it truly important, we have been focused (by 'we', I mean 'we the people' as a whole) on our survival and it is now time to move up the ladder to the living in love. 

Really decide what you want and do not compromise, this is your time, the time you have been waiting for and so get prepared. They (being my guides and angels) keep reminding me they did warn me of this time coming and so if I am not prepared, it is no one's fault but my own and they of course are right. So, clearly decide what you want, include what is really important on your wish list and be really thorough. (Like if you want a new partner in life and you love animals, remember to include on your list that they too like animals or are open to having many in their lives). And, when you are done, put your list in your pyramid of creation and watch as it begins to blossom. The lag time in our creations is getting shorter, this is the time to watch your thoughts and keep them focused while not being distracted by the drama around you. 

No small feat, but one that will be worth the effort as are you and your dreams. Get ready for the changes as this is bringing much love and opportunity for those who choose to take it. This is like the 2nd chance you have been dreaming of and it will indeed be even better than the first one ones as it is now based in the new energy of Love. 

Be sure that you have put the past to rest and exactly where it belongs and be sure that you are not measuring the future with a yard stick from the past as you are now all on the metric system lol. Celebrate the changes as you begin to follow your heart and trust your inner guidance. You have been doing the work, let it be your guidance system and your compass as you are doing just fine on your path are are ready to take this new leap of faith into the great abyss of unlimited possibilities!
