Patience, patience, patience in this crazy world.... It is not learned when everything is harmonious and going well. Who needs it then? But the minute something goes contrary to ones point of view or doesn't’t go their way, patient goes out the window and a blow up or anger and resentment occurs. Patience, then, is a cultivation of the inner space to accept what is, and what cannot be changed, and to stay in integrity with peace and balance.

The most common and universal behavioral program used throughout the world is what I call the 3 R's; Resentment, Resistance and Revenge. It is the major cause of war and aggression throughout our world. Patience can help to keep emotions in check and facilitate a more kind, open and accepting attitude toward others and differing ideologies.

The energies of resentment, fear, anger and revenge only hurt those who feel them. Let's keep our inner lives free of these destructive emotions. Only through the higher frequency emotions of love, acceptance, and the quality of patience can we truly change the world.

Until next time, stay positive, be fearless and spread your light and love.

FULL BLUE MOON IN PISCES (9 degrees) Friday, August 31, 2012, 6:59 am PDT and 9:59 am EDT.

The tsunamis of change continue. Every planet interfaces with this Full Moon, amplifying the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square and challenging us to reconcile all aspects of our consciousness and lives. Whatever we have been most reluctant to face is exactly what is showing up for assimilation now, so that we can move to the next level.

One of the primary keys to our evolution lies in the inte- gration of the left and right hemispheres of our brain. The left brain processes information much like a computer, in a linear, logical, literal manner. It is objective, externally focused, and sees the world in dualistic, mechanistic, and reductionistic terms. The right brain perceives in a holistic, nonlinear, symbolic mode. It recognizes patterns and metaphors, which are revealed in feelings, images, dreams, music, and imagination. Not bound by time and space, the right brain is able to envision all possibilities and operates in realities validated by quantum mechanics rather than classical physics. Various forms of meditation — Vipassana, Qigong, Tai Chi, yoga, and many others — as well as music and artistic expression help to strengthen the corpus callosum, the neural fibers that facilitate inter-hemispheric communication.

For centuries, the analytical, segregative abilities of the left brain have been considered superior to the right-brain functions of intuition and relationship. Leonard Shlain, in his book The Alphabet Versus the Goddess, postulates that the invention of linear, alphabetic forms of writing directly contributed to left-brain dominance, upsetting the balance between masculine and feminine and paving the way for patriarchy and misogyny. Perceptions and values associated with the feminine — intuition, feelings, nature — were disparaged, disempowering women and desacralizing the Earth.

Virgo notices the trees; Pisces sees the forest. Those born in the West have been more deeply programmed to abide solely in the methodical “real world” of Virgo and to shun the “woo-woo” realm of Pisces. Before we can move into the Age of Aquarius, we must incorporate the paradoxical truths of Pisces: that we are both particle and wave, transitory and eternal, finite and infinite. Chiron and Neptune’s conjunction with the Moon in Pisces helps us to see that everything changes, nothing is separate, and “It’s all God in drag,” as Ram Dass succinctly put it.

Venus in Cancer’s aspects to the Sun and Moon, and its square to Saturn at 26° Libra, push us to express our feelings and our needs. On August 29, the Sun makes its second of two trines to Pluto this year (the first was on April 29), facilitating the release of whatever is holding us back. Also on August 29, the transiting North Node enters Scorpio, where it remains until February 18, 2014, adding to the cosmic imperative to transmute the unconscious patterns that hold us in separation. The Sun squares the June 4 eclipse point on September 5, re-stimulating the evolutionary objectives of that extremely powerful Full Moon, which transmitted new energetic templates and codes for rebalancing the masculine and feminine.

This Full Moon advise us to go full-out in living our truth. To express our individualized sense of value regardless of tradition. This is the Great Awakening, the shift of the ages, the dawn of a new era. This is why we came to Earth, why we went through spiritual boot camp — to be of service during this extraordinary transition. Align everything in your life with your mission, and remember: “This blessed world, this third planet from the star we call the Sun, needs you and me to become all that she can be. We have an opportunity to bring to her a great gift, a gift for which she has been longing since our race first appeared among her dreams. The gift of ourselves. Awakened. Whole. Incarnate.” (From the book, The Return of the Bird Tribes, by Ken Caey)

Some excerpts are from The Mountain Astrologer by Stephanie Austin.

A Full Moon symbolizes the fulfillment of the seeds planted at a previous New Moon or some earlier cycle. Each Full Moon reminds us of the seeds that may be coming to maturity, to their fullness, to fruition, to the place where the fruits or gifts are received. It may seem that fulfillment of our goals takes a long time. Some intentions may manifest within the two week phase prior to the next New or Full Moon. Some however, depending on their complexity, may take a much longer time. Just remember that our thoughts and emotions set Universal Action in motion and much work takes place behind the scenes as everything is orchestrated for fulfillment. Keep visualizing your goals as though you have already attained them and they will eventually manifest. Do not concern yourself with current conditions or worry about controlling it. The universe takes care of those details. Just keep seeing what you want and give no energy to what you don't want. Patience is required.

PERSONAL MOON CEREMONY Find the time to have your own private Moon Ceremony. You have a three day window of energy in which to manifest your intentions. The day before, the day of, and the day after.

For the Full Moon, jot down two or three areas of your life you want to clean up. The Full Moon is the time to release or get rid of the things that no longer serve you, so by the next New Moon your slate is clean for new beginnings, or fertile for the planting of new seeds.

Possible phrasing: I now release______ from my life. I now release my destructive ________ patterns. I now let go of fear, jealousy, anger, envy, negative thinking, etc... Remember, think and envision as though you have already let go of what you have released. See yourself free and living your dreams. Thoughts are things and the brain manifests exactly what you show it in the form of thoughts and visuals about yourself. The Buddha said, and I am paraphrasing, "We are the sum total of our thoughts up to today. " If we want to be different then we must change our thoughts. What you think about grows!! "If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got." CONSCIOUS CHANGE is the key.

Opportunity Periods for the next 2 weeks are listed below and are a wonderful tool to maximize your efforts. Opportunity Periods reflect favorable aspects of the Moon. The energies of the Moon impact us in a very direct way. Using the positive energies that the Moon showers upon the Earth, to our benefit, makes good sense. Opportunity Periods have proven to provide helpful energy to non routine tasks. If you feel like you are always going against the grain and things are stressful, try using these time periods for more easily accomplishing important tasks: purchases, repairs, client appointments, sales calls, important phone calls, finishing goals, starting new projects, tying up loose ends, starting new relationships (except when Venus is Retrograde), job hunting, doctor visits, family meetings, etc.

I personally use OPs and find them to be invaluable. I am happy to pass on this unique and useful information.
