Highlighted Aspects:
TUE: Venus enters Leo; WED: Chiron sesquisquare Venus, Pluto sesquisquare Mercury; THU: Neptune quincunx Jupiter; FRI: Pluto sextile Mars, Mercury enters Virgo; SAT: Uranus sesquisquare Mercury, Neptune trine Vesta; SUN: Neptune quincunx Venus, Jupiter conjunct Venus

 
PERHAPS in response to the intensity of today’s supersized Full Moon, our planetary aspects for the week ahead seem to mostly call for attitude adjustments and a reconfiguration of old thought patterns.
 
Today’s lunation is called a “supermoon” because it occurs while the Moon is at its closest proximity to the Earth (at perigee). So it is not an optical illusion that this Full Moon looks larger than most — it actually is, according to SpaceWeather.com, “as much as 14% closer and 30% brighter than other Full Moons of the year.”
 
FULL MOONS are always times of great potential, as we have greater access to the treasures that lie hidden in our unconscious and subconscious minds when the Moon is at the peak of its cycle. Light shines into the darkness, and we become more aware of what is within us, as well as what aspects of ourselves are asking to be expressed more fully in the outer world.
 
Today’s Full Moon is especially strong, not only because it is a supermoon, but because Saturn is very closely squaring (90 degrees away from) both the Sun and the Moon. Saturn’s involvement in this lunation brings a serious element to the game, and requires us to be clear about our motivations and desires as we decide what our next steps should be.
 
On top of that, Mercury and the Sun are aligned in Leo in the Full Moon chart. Since Mercury represents our conscious mind, this alignment increases the potential for new, creative ideas to come into our awareness. At the same time, the Saturn square will make sure we maintain our awareness of what is possible, and that we integrate those insights in a practical way into our daily lives.
 
THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of the coming week is a quincunx between Neptune and Jupiter, exact on Thursday. A quincunx occurs when two planets are separated by 150 degrees. According to astrologer Bil Tierney, a quincunx helps with “breaking down and removing those non-effectual attitudes that interfere with our ongoing growth.”
 
This Neptune-Jupiter quincunx requires that we interrupt those old patterns of thought and belief that get in the way of our accessing the deeper wisdom that lies within us. As long as we hold onto the old perceptions and interpretations of reality, we will remain in the realms of confusion, disillusion, and frustration.
 
But, when we consciously recognize how old thought patterns have controlled us — instead of us directing and being in command of our thoughts — we start to move beyond those places of discomfort and disharmony. We realize we can think in new ways, that we are not at the mercy of unwanted (and seemingly unbidden) thought forms and streams of consciousness.
 
ONCE WE TAKE this leap into new consciousness and self-awareness, we can start to take advantage of the positive energies of both Neptune and Jupiter, rather than feeling at odds with what these planets offer.
 
Instead of feeling disillusioned and fearful, we can start to access greater trust, faith, and receptivity (Neptune in Pisces). And, instead of feeling overwhelmed and over-reactive, we can start to live with greater joy, spontaneity, and confidence (Jupiter in Leo).
 
WE WRAP UP the week with a Jupiter-Venus alignment in Leo next Sunday. It’s good that this alignment occurs on a weekend — its influence enhances our playful and carefree natures, which means it would be very hard to sit behind a desk and work. (My apologies to those who have weekend jobs!)
 
That being said, we usually have only one Jupiter-Venus conjunction a year, and their alignment in Leo occurs only once or twice every 12 years, so if you can, plan to take advantage of the joining of these two planets. Allow yourself the freedom to do what you want to do, to be spontaneous, to enjoy the moment, and let go of needing to get work done or be serious — even if just for a few hours…

Blessings,

Pam

HILARION 2014 August 10-17, 2014 | The Rainbow Scribe

“Beloved Ones,  The lightworkers of the world are gathering together in unity often to effect changes in the energetic field surrounding the Earth. Everyone brings their powerful intentions for a peaceful world to counteract and neutralize the floundering and chaotic energies that try to bring the planet into a lower vibration once again.  This will not happen as the planet Earth is now moving into the next phase of ascension into the light realms and your light is much needed to help create new vitality, peace and graceful changes within all of humanity in synchronization with the Earth’s movement. The world you live on is in a stage of resurrection and all of her kingdoms and inhabitants need to align with this occurrence. It is the human kingdom that needs to step up in frequency and focus and remember their magnificence. Those who are aware and awake are called upon to listen to their heart in the coming weeks and follow the guidance they receive with courage and strength.

As this cosmic event takes place the hearts of humanity will open wider and a greater sense of oneness and unity will come into effect. This truth will encourage everyone to work together in harmony and peace. As each person follows the dictates of their soul by following the guidance from within their heart, they will know what they need to do if it is needed. Staying connected with nature is most important and standing barefoot on the ground several times a day is helpful to keep one grounded and balanced. As given before, immersing oneself in water each day is very beneficial during these times. Focusing on the joy that the exquisite detail in nature provides for heart openings is the key. Joy is a state of being that uplifts, inspires and transcends the happenings of the past.

Each of you is a universe unto yourselves and so each of you can create the reality that you most desire. Rather than focusing on all that is wrong in the world according to the news media, focus on what you want to experience and see in your world. You are each powerful creators and staying in touch with your heart promptings is a focus that each of you must hold. Do not listen to those who react with intensity to the happenings that are occurring and understand that they are not yet connected within their hearts, for the heart is the compass during these changing times. Continue to bless everyone consciously from your heart space when they come into your sphere of influence. Together, as a force of light and love, you are creating a new way of being and doing.

You are entering a new era and this is a most exciting time for all. It is a time to celebrate each other’s accomplishments and to cheer on your sisters and brothers as they step out of their former limitations into the grander picture that unfolds. Remember that love is the greatest force in the universe and that the universe desires to support each and everyone upon the planet. As each of you gives gratitude for all that is given, the universe impartially brings more of every good thing. Connect then, to the innate goodness that you are and dream your dreams, expand your vision and dare to think BIG!

Until next week…

I AM Hilarion”

Saul Audio Blog for SundayAugust 10th

Things are heating up as you might say!  There are multitudes of groups all across the planet meditating daily for peace, and to great effect.  Peace will prevail because it is God’s Will as well as that of the vast majority of humans.  Those who would intensify ongoing conflicts or instigate new ones will most definitely fail in their objectives.  Earth is now a planet of peace, and the conflicts that are still occurring will be wound down and terminated, there is no longer any meaningful support available to assist those who wish to maintain or extend them.  And this is cause for celebration!

Celebrations raise the energy fields of those who participate in them, opening them to feel and then engage with the Tsunami of Love.  Truly life is to be celebrated, especially now because what has been in opposition to life is…

August 2014 Astro-Energy Report: Super Moon, Super Month! by Sarah Varcas

August 2014 Astro-Energy Report: Super Moon, Super Month!
by Sarah Varcas

“The month begins with a Grand Trine in Water formed by Venus, Chiron and Saturn, coupled with a square between Jupiter and Mars. There’s a risk of over-doing things emotionally here. We may enter the month with sensitivities running high and an internal dialogue which goes something like this: ‘If I don’t achieve all my goals by the end of this month there’s no hope so it’s time to pull out the stops and let nothing stand in my way, no matter how tough it gets’. At one level it’s an admirable inner dialogue. Commitment and sheer bloody-minded resolve can take us far in this world. But right now it’s wise to take such inner dictates with a pinch of salt and remember that ultimately it’s the universe, not us, who’s in charge of proceedings and to hold rigid expectations of ourselves, other people or life itself, can be a recipe for disappointment and frustration. So be sure to ease off a bit if this particular monologue is playing in your mind as August begins and remember, there’s a whole new month ahead and, quite frankly, anything could happen!

The first week is characterised by this combination of sensitivity and inner drive which could turn us into something of a martyr if we let it, but come 4th August Neptune begins to lend a helping hand reminding us that sometimes the best progress is made when we take our foot off the accelerator and allow momentum to take us forward for a bit. We don’t always have to be driving hard and fast, no matter what our inner critic says about our progress to date. This is a test! Do we trust life enough to get us where we need to be (even if it’s not where we think we should end up!) or do we still believe we know better and should be drawing the map and planning the journey moment by moment? If we use the first week of August to answer this question honestly, we will be prepared for the Super Moon on 10th which may reveal to us where we need to accept rather than change, and release rather than cling on.

Prior to this, beginning on 7th August and continuing through to the other side of the Full Moon, we have the opportunity to embrace the wisdom of knowing the difference between pushing the river and going with the flow. The former may be tempting right now but the latter is most definitely what’s called for! It doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to an undesirable and unattractive fate, nor does it mean that we can’t take action to further our goals, but it does mean that when we are meeting obstacles over and over, banging our head against an invisible brick wall which seems to imprison us, the quicker we can take heed and ease off the better. And never has this been more important to grasp than now, for these brick walls are there for a reason and it’s not to smash them down without a second thought! They serve to remind us there are foundations still to be built in the form of skills to acquire, wisdom to develop, or good old fashioned information we still need to discover, before we can move forward in the right direction.

Which brings us to the Aquarius Full Moon on 10th August. This is THE Super Moon of 2014 and one to be respected! Yes, I know other Moons have been designated ‘Super’ this year, but not by me! THIS is the Super Moon to take note of. With the Sun within one degree of Black Moon Lilith, this Moon reminds us that without aligning ourselves with the forces of this universe which are far greater and more powerful than our tiny human minds could ever conceive, we cannot achieve what needs to be achieved in order for the Aquarian Age to be delivered safely and intact. Astrological Ages are ginormous things. Each lasts for a couple of thousand years or so and there is much debate over what actually constitutes the beginning of a new one. However, whatever your view on that, one thing we can all agree is that the next one is the Age of Aquarius and nothing is more important now than raising our own awareness in order to meet it from a place of deep wisdom and insight. And it’s never too early to start that kind of project!

I’ll be writing more about this Moon when the time comes, but suffice to say that it offers a wonderful opportunity to commit to change and release the energy of old habits, fears and conditions which have stopped us from doing so up to now. We don’t have to do it all in one go over night though! The energies of this Moon strengthen our commitment and staying power to keep us on track. They’re not destined to make it all happen in the blink of an eye. Indeed, as we form the commitment to a new and more authentic life this Moon may well reveal to us aspects of our current circumstances which cannot be released but instead must be embraced, accepted and loved for what they are in order for our search for truth to be fulfilled. It comes not as a magic wand but as a whole new tool box which we can open up to discover that extra strength we needed, that deeper insight which ensures our understanding, that extra information needed to complete the puzzle. Insights, information, people and experiences which come to us with this moon are influential and we would be wise not to overlook them!

And as long as we don’t, a sextile between the Sun and the Moon’s North Node the week following the Super Moon allows us to make the most of its potential. It will take a willingness to embrace a new point of view, one born of the fresh perspective illuminated by the Full Moon in Aquarius. The proximity of this aspect to the Full Moon will require rapid adjustment from us, but the quicker we can make it, discarding how we previously viewed things in favour of our new perceptions, the more we will reap the benefits of this much needed adjustment. Some may inevitably struggle with this shift, and it may be those we expected to go with the flow that struggle the most (including ourselves!).  But ultimately this time supports us in releasing stubborn ways and, frankly, immature demands that life does what we want, in favour of a more sound recognition that life may have designs upon us not yet understood and what we perceive as limitation and bad luck may actually be the very portal through which we must travel in order to realise them.

The final two weeks of the month provide numerous opportunities to explore what making these shifts means for us in our everyday life. They speak of two apparently contradictory forces at work which, by their very nature, will require that we step up, with all our courage and resolve, to do things differently and fulfil the potential of both. One, born of an alliance between Uranus, Chiron and Saturn which has been around since June, continues to orient us towards the healing necessary to embrace ever deeper and more authentic truths, and the other, born of an alliance between Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune, demands that we face the challenge this poses to our ego which is inclined only to embrace the truths which suit us and make us feel better about ourselves and in control of life. At this time control is not something we have. At least, not in the way our egos would like to have it! This is a time of purging and release, and what we are releasing may be painful in its passing. We may prefer to cling on because we are identified with the very thing which must be let go.  In such a moment we are faced with the impact of ego against the infinite backdrop of the Divine which requires total trust.

This month we are called to penetrate the truth of our beliefs and personal dogmas, no matter how ‘right’ they have felt or how many other people share them. We cannot enter the Aquarian Age encumbered by beliefs which weigh us down and limit our potential. And even the most apparently ‘spiritual’ and contemporary ones can do this if we have adopted them for the placation of our ego. Ultimately beliefs, dogma, models of evolution, labels that we apply to ourselves and others…. none of these are necessary in the burgeoning age, which requires only that we are present in the moment, connected with all of life as it swirls around and through us, and acting in honour of the greater good. At one level this is infinitely simple, and yet at another so deeply complex our minds will never grasp it no matter how hard they try.

On 25th August the Moon is new in the 3rd degree of Virgo, a degree connected to the angelic realms. No matter how you perceive of angels: as a physical reality, a metaphor or a fairytale, this Moon speaks of protection and support available to each and every one of us. This month is intense and many may encounter moments of challenge and even crisis within it. But this Moon comes as a balm to soothe heavy hearts or weary souls. It reminds us that we are not alone, no matter how isolated we may feel. That life itself courses through us, connecting us with everything throughout the cosmos and beyond. This New Moon invites us to experience this fact, no matter how successfully our minds may be telling us all is lost and we are forever forsaken. Coinciding with a conjunction between Mars and Saturn in Scorpio it may well be a time of pressure, power games and what may feel like defeat and hopelessness, but in fact it is a time in which we can choose to gather up our courage and do things in a different way. Neither give in to the negativity nor turn from and deny it. But instead look it in the eye, whatever it is, and know that if we exist in the same world as this, we have a responsibility for it and are called upon by the cosmos to carry that responsibility with integrity and honour. We cannot separate ourselves from the pain of this world and nor should we. We are moving into the Aquarian Age of community and sister/brotherhood, in which injustice for one is injustice for all. This is a very different discourse to that of the Piscean Age in which saviours and victims need to find each other to live out their roles.

By the end of this month we can come to the recognition we can all be saviours and victims, to ourselves and each other. Or we can choose to be neither and create a whole new way of living. The playing field is levelling and we can choose our part to play. But we must choose well and with deep consideration of the global consciousness from which we draw and to which we contribute every day. We must come to recognise that if we consider ourselves special we render others less so. If we see ourselves as powerless we give power over to others. If we believe only the positive deserves our attention we are denying the experience of all those who suffer day in day out. And if we call only on others to do their bit and own up, we are denying or own part in both the potential for positive change and the maintenance of a dysfunctional and destructive status quo.

August 2014 is an intense month for sure. Many will need support, compassion and understanding to come through it facing the right direction. But we can do it, all of us, if we set the commitment at the start of the month to do so. A commitment to truth without dogma, compassion without pity, and eyes so wide open we can no longer entertain anything but the deepest truth which will reveal itself on a moment by moment basis if we prepare ourselves to receive. If we do all that, we can get through and come out the other end thriving, not just surviving, and more awake than ever before.”

SaLuSa via Mike Quinsey ~ 1 August 2014

Hi Friends,

At last I have recovered from my latest computer failure. Lost all of my files, so have been busy setting things up yet again. At least I can now send out my messages, and the Emails are set up. So I am hoping for a long period of successful computer work.

In Love and Light. Mike Quinsey.

SaLuSa via Mike Quinsey ~ 1 August 2014

For you life seems to move slowly and every moment is imprinted upon your mind, yet in reality the changes are swiftly taking place. There has never been a time when so much is happening so quickly. You are speeding along towards remarkable changes and nothing will be able to hold them back. The mould has been set for a swift change to all that is needed to bring the long awaited New Age into being. You are part of a complex plan to allow the dark Ones the responsibility to be the cause of their own demise. In their arrogance they believe that they are the masters of their future, but overlook the dictates of Heaven. You have an expression about giving someone “enough rope to hang themselves” and this is the position the Dark Ones are in. Their destiny is sealed and they cannot buy their way out of it.

We have often proclaimed that there is a parting of the ways between those who are ready to ascend and those that are not, and this is never more true than it is today. You are all moving into a level that reflects your true vibration, and not a single soul can remain within the higher vibrations unless it is their true level. It is both fair and logical that you will feel “at home” with like souls who share your own ambitions and spiritual understanding. You will however be able to serve those who languish in the lower vibrations, if it should be your desire. For many there is an innate feeling of responsibility for those souls who desire to lift themselves up. Be assured that you will be given that opportunity to do so.

You are living in a defining time that draws souls of a like kind together. It is quite natural at the end of an Age, and prepares people for the next stage in their evolution. At last you will soon be able to enjoy your experience with souls of a like kind and progress will be rapid. You can therefore concentrate on your own future and maintain your personal vibrations. At this stage the mould is set, and most souls have reached a point of advancement that fully represents their present stage of progress. We applaud and love those souls who still work and give fully of themselves to awaken others to the truth. It will have been their life contract and fulfilment of their desire to help them to awaken to their true selves.

In your travels please remember that the blackest of souls still has the spark of Light within. It will therefore respond to those souls around it that can carry their Light as a banner of their allegiance to God. It may take time but no soul is beyond help, and it is a great challenge that will test those of the Light. It takes a very advanced soul to accept it and one that has complete and utter faith in the Light. Those who feel the urge to help souls of a lesser Light will always find the correct level, and are not expected to go to an even lower one.

Dear Souls of Light and Love, all of you feel an urge to give of yourselves to others, and according to your experience will find such opportunities come up along your life path. However, try to allow them to come to you in a natural way and know that they will not necessarily be demanding of you. Do what is within your capabilities and treat others as you would be treated. You will know when you are on the right track , and success does not overinflate the ego, although some souls cannot help but feel overjoyed. That is fine and we too feel such gratitude when you rise to the occasion and achieve your goal. On a higher level we are All One and very powerful Beings, working with the pure vibrations of Love and Light.

We here know that some souls are eager to serve the Light, and feel that they are not being used as they would wish.  Let us tell you that your desires are known to us, and be assured that as the ideal opportunity comes up you will be thrust into action. Even simply being a good example of a soul of Light, you will help others to understand how to express themselves whilst on Earth. Therefore be assured that all Beings of Light contribute to the upliftment of others, and indeed apart from your personal evolution it is what you came to Earth to do. Souls are one big family of Light and Love that is your gift from God.

You have come a long way since you first elected to experience upon Earth. When you first came you were already highly evolved Beings, and were prepared to drop your vibrations to learn what it was like in the lower ones. Initially you were at a level where you were Beings of Light, but over a long period of time the vibrations dropped and you lost touch with your Higher Self. It meant that you slipped down to the lower levels and in your history it is recorded as the Dark Ages. However, the Light was always present and in the course of time the darkness was subdued and lifted. Consequently the Light returned and today you are on the threshold of a New Age.

The desired changes are manifesting in many different ways, and are not necessarily apparent unless you can take a panoramic view such as we do. However, the weather changes are happening on a wide scale and are already evident. As we have previously stated, there is going to be more temperate weather throughout the world which changes you are already noting. To some it appears as turmoil and that is because the changes are worldwide, and as you are noting are also affecting the animal and nature kingdom. Such changes have occurred in your past and are quite natural, particularly where your land masses are concerned. Looking back at your history you would find that your world looked quite different to what it is today.

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and uplifted by the response of the Souls of Light to the demands upon them, at a time when their cooperation is so vital to the success of the End Times. You have rode the storm to take your place at the helm to lead the people of Earth to victory. One day in the near future you will be totally aware of the magnitude of your success. Carrying the Light with you to Earth is one thing, but you had to realise its existence within yourself and put it to good use. We send our Love and Light as always, and eagerly anticipate the day of our reunion.

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

MESSAGES FROM ARCHANGEL MICHAEL * LM-8-2014 TRANSMITTED THROUGH RONNA HERMAN: ENHANCING YOUR POWER TO MANIFEST

MESSAGES FROM ARCHANGEL MICHAEL * LM-8-2014
TRANSMITTED THROUGH RONNA HERMAN:
ENHANCING YOUR POWER TO MANIFEST

            Beloved masters, as you traverse the return path into the higher-dimensional realms of existence known as the River of Light/Life, or sometimes, the Rainbow Bridge of Cosmic Consciousness, the vibrational patterns within and around you are in a constant state of change.  This has resulted in an ever-increasing expansion of consciousness, whereby the filters through which you view your world of reality, as well as the belief-structures you have built around you, are gradually being replaced with higher, more empowering truths.  The world you have created and those you interact with will always reflect back to you the beliefs and expectations you have accepted as your truth.

            In a painful or debilitating situation, there are always distorted or imbalanced beliefs and attachments which keep you imprisoned in a false, illusional reality. The beliefs which control many of your actions and reactions on a daily basis are slowly dissolving, and are being replaced with self-empowering concepts you are gradually accepting as your new version (vision) of reality.  You are in the process of expanding your awareness of Self, and you are developing a more focused, in-depth awareness of those with whom you interact, and also of the realms beyond your present ability to see. You have often heard the saying that “all is an illusion.”  This does not mean that everything that has been created in the physical realm of existence is not solid, does not have structure, or is not real.  Nor does it mean that the higher realms are illusional with no tangible structure or definition. Every level of existence throughout this Universe seems as real to those who reside there as your earthly home does to you. The Creator and Its all-encompassing influence are most assuredly real, just as we are.

             The illusion is your perception of the world, a reality you view through filters of your own making: beliefs, structures, taboos and limitations you have encoded within your subconscious mind and have accepted as your truth.  Everyone views the world and daily events through a veil of their own beliefs and a modified level of awareness. That is why many see everything through a filter of negativity, while en-Lighten-ed Souls experience life through a filter of love and non-judgment.

            During these times of accelerated transformation, you are experiencing great changes both within and without. The membranes between the subconscious, conscious and superconscious minds are becoming thinner, thereby allowing you access to the subjective, self-limiting information you need to release and the distorted concepts you need to heal in order to return to balance within as you strive to reclaim Self-mastery. The right and left hemispheres of your brain, as well as the matrix of your subconscious, conscious and superconscious are in the process of merging and returning to a unified state of super- or macro-consciousness. In many ways, the saying “as it was in the beginning, so it will be once more” applies to the transformational process humanity is now experiencing.

            Every observation via the physical senses that makes an impression on you, as well as every action, interaction and reaction, is automatically transmitted and recorded within the memory cells of the subconscious mind.  Again, we stress, your subconscious mind is subjective and takes every thought or experience literally, and is thereafter affected by your individual bias. The subconscious mind will continue to respond to and replay old thought patterns and conditions over and over again until the misconceptions are resolved and reprogrammed.

            Your third- and fourth-dimensional world is random and chaotic while the time/space continuum of the higher-fourth dimension and beyond is more flexible and fluid. As you integrate the vibrational patterns of the higher dimensions, all that is not compatible will rise to the surface for resolution, which results in higher wisdom. For those who have developed their inner sight, they know that thoughts are tangible things.   They are aware that the quality or frequency patterns of a thought determine its color, while the nature of an emotion determines the form it will take. The more focused and detailed a thought is, the clearer the outline will be. Thoughts of a low frequency level are dark, muddy and distorted while the higher octaves of thought, those infused with love, are more delicate and luminous.  You must accept the fact that your thoughts do have substance and that they do have an effect on you and the world around you.

            You must be willing to examine the preconceived ideas about the complex traditions /structures/boundaries of your life, and you must release or transform the beliefs which are keeping you stuck in self-inflicted structural limitations. Releasing attachments, outmoded habits and concepts is an ongoing process and requires constant vigilance and upgrading. We are aware that you have built comfort zones around you which are difficult to move beyond, even if they are uncomfortable and constrictive.  But that is exactly what you must do, beloveds, if you are to expand and become the masters of cocreation you were meant to be.

             Letting go is liberating and gives you the power to expand your consciousness and your world.  The higher your vibrational patterns become, the more fluid the restrictions around you become.  Do not become attached to the structures of life you have built around you.  You must realize that change is an integral part of growth. You make decisions and choices every day, and as a master-becoming, it is imperative that you always strive for the highest choices.  The boundaries of your spectrum of duality will become narrower, and the pendulum of choice will swing in a much smaller range to the right and left of center.  As a result, your perception and conscious awareness will expand and be raised exponentially.   “A master always follows the narrow upward path” is an ancient truth that still applies.  You must always seek your highest truth and then live it to the best of your ability.

            It is important that you are aware that there is an orderly sequence to the Cosmic Cycles of Creation which define and emphasize a great variety of GODLY EXPRESSION.  Therefore, it is important that you learn to flow and adapt to the changes of the time, to discard the restrictive, limiting beliefs of your third- and fourth-dimensional reality as you gain wisdom, seek higher truths and grow closer to your original “State of Divinity.”

            We are in the midst of one of the greatest cycles of transformation that this Universe has ever experienced; however, it is important that you understand that there have been many minor cycles of change on Earth, and each of you has experienced these transformational times in one way or another.

            The coming Seventh Root Race will be highly-evolved and spiritually-attuned and will be influenced by the SEVENTH RAY of transformation, purification, freedom and redemption. Everyone and everything on Earth will be affected by the radiance of the Seventh Ray, the Violet Transmuting Flame. Many of the old, outmoded teachings are being discarded as you evolve in wisdom and raise your frequency patterns. The love-based and empowering religious beliefs will be retained, while the fear-based, controlling concepts are slowly being discarded. During the transition into the age of enlightenment, the religions that will survive are those which are willing to expand their philosophy to incorporate the revealed, higher Creator truths.

            New cycles of “Being” are initiated through a willingness to change and can gradually be incorporated with ease and grace. However, for those who are resistant, it will be through chaos and conflict.  Much depends on your capacity to attract, respond and absorb (or reject), and then transmit the more refined energies known as “higher truth.”  Your Soul and Higher Self remember the reason you chose to experience and express painful situations–not as a punishment, but for resolution.

            It is vitally important that you strive to strengthen your self-determination and your desire for fulfillment.  You must evolve from an ego self-serving mode to a Soul-serving state.  Your Soul is the part of you which is connected to the “Universal Whole.”  You gain compassion the hard way through pain and suffering (ego-driven), or the easy way through the process of reunion with your Higher Self and God Ray (Soul-inspired).

            Nothing can escape the radiation and magnetic influence of the rarified Creator Light/Adamantine Particles now permeating this Universe, Sub-universe, galaxy, solar system, the Earth and humanity. The chakras are like electromagnetic batteries within the body.  The vibrations of electromagnetic frequencies communicate to many levels of consciousness. You must be harmonious with and attuned to the vibrational frequencies in order to integrate them. The higher frequencies of Light/ thought/sound vibrate through your blood, cells, organs, bones, muscles and tissues, enriching your sense of well-being.  The lower frequencies of the third- / fourth-dimensional environment restrict the flow of life-giving energy, and increase the density in your four lower-body systems.  Your blood carries genetic encodings of your earthly lineage, but more important, your cosmic lineage and your Divine heritage.

            My beloved bearers of Light, we ask you to view each test and challenge as an opportunity to release outmoded thoughts and vibrational patterns which no longer serve your greater good. We implore you to view your life experiences through the filters of your Sacred Heart/Mind as you draw forth the Diamond Ray Particles of Life/Light and infuse them with your love before radiating them out into the world and to humanity.  We are all in this cosmic dance of evolution, and together, we shall prevail.  I AM Archangel Michael.

ENHANCING YOUR POWER TO MANIFEST

RONNA / SACRED SCRIBE

            Meditating regularly on the Sacred Heart, and consciously activating the incoming Adamantine Particles of Creator Light that you integrate, will result in a major transformation in your life as you become a cocreative Self-Master of the highest order.

            In a relaxed state, begin the Breath of Infinity–(a figure 8). With each breath, imagine your consciousness expanding to incorporate all of the solar system………. then the galaxy…………… and then this Sub-universe. Envision, however you perceive, the magnificence of the planets, star systems, galaxies, and also feel within your Sacred Heart the power and majesty of the vastness of space…….the “Great Void” filled with the unmanifested potential of Love/Light (the Adamantine Particles of Creation, powered by Love).

            Now envision yourself as the center, the focal point within this Sub-universe, as the “Flow of Divine Light” radiates forth from all directions toward you.  See the prisms of Light refracting into Rainbow Colors, which contain all the virtues, qualities, attributes and potential of Creation.  Breathe deeply as you ingest this gift of Love/Life, as you begin to feel the flow to you and from you…….the never-ending supply of Divine Light Substance.   Breathe in………..breathe out………… breathe in………..breathe out…………..as you see this magic elixir flow forth from your Sacred Heart center in an Infinity Sign, from both the front and back portals of your heart.   Be aware that, with you as the receptacle and the conduit on the material plane, the Creator particles of pure Light substance will pour forth into you and from you in a never-ending supply.  These particles will stream outward into the material world to be molded into an unlimited variety of physical manifestations via your visions, seed thoughts and pure intentions / will / actions!

AFFIRMATION: SAY TO YOURSELF: “I RECLAIM MY DIVINE BIRTHRIGHT AND MY CONNECTION WITH MY HIGHER SELF AND MY SOUL FAMILY. I ASK TO BE ALIGNED WITH THE MASTERS AND THE BEINGS OF LIGHT THAT I AM TO COMMUNE WITH, IN ORDER TO ACCESS AND RELAY THE COSMIC WISDOM AND TRUTH WHICH I AM TO INTEGRATE AND SHARE.  HERE AND NOW, I RECLAIM MY SELF-MASTERY AND THE APPROPRIATE QUALITIES, GIFTS, VIRTUES AND ATTRIBUTES OF MY DIVINE SELF.  I DESIRE TO BE A LIVING PERSONIFIED EXAMPLE OF LOVE, HARMONY, ABUNDANCE AND JOY.   I AM DIVINE LOVE, I AM DIVINE LIGHT, I AM DIVINE WILL, AND I AM DIVINE WISDOM IN ACTION. 

SO BE IT!  SO IT IS!  I AM THAT, I AM!”

            Lastly, but of vast importance, always maintain an attitude of gratitude for all things, large and small.  A constant state of thanksgiving generated from within the Sacred Heart will magnify and enhance your ability to cocreate in alignment with the Divine Plan for the greatest good of all.

How will you use this gift which is a treasure beyond imagining? What are your greatest desires? What will be your legacy to the world and humanity?  Reach for the stars, beloved friends, for there is no limit to what you can manifest and share when your desires are in harmony with Spirit. Forever love and angel blessings, Ronna

“How to create abundance of every form” by angelicguides ~ channeled by Taryn Crimi

“How to create abundance of every form”

by angelicguides

by Taryn Crimi

healing2

Today we would like to take this time to discuss the manifestation of abundance. Now, it is important to note that we are not merely speaking about financial abundance as that is just one form of abundance, rather we will be discussing how to create abundance of anything you desire. Let us begin.

We often say that all of you are always creating abundance at all times, you may just not particularly like what you are abundant in. Remember you can be abundant in problems, lack, disease and challenges just as easily as you can be abundant in finances, joy, love, bliss and friendships. This is why we say, all of you are always manifesting abundance however we would like to further explain how you can consciously direct what you wish to be abundant in.

Those of you who are drawn to this message are already well aware that you are the creators of your reality. So why then is their still lack, disease, suffering and heartache? To this we reply, because though you have become consciously aware that you have been the sole creator of your reality, you are only just beginning to remember how to consciously direct what it is that you wish to create. We often relate the ability to consciously manifest to any other muscle within the human body. Just as with any muscle, if it goes unused for an extended period of time it will begin to weaken, and with time it will eventually atrophy.

You see, your ability has never gone away, it merely atrophied due to the lack of use; however with the use and conscious development of this skill you will once again regain the ability to direct it at will. Because you are still tied to the illusion of linear time you will likely regain this ability over time rather than experiencing the reawakening of this ability in an instant.

So, you wonder, how can I develop the ability to consciously manifest all of my desires? How may I begin to create abundance in my life? To this we reply, you must first and foremost allow it to enter your life by letting go of the walls and limits you have created which have prevented it from flowing in. As we have said, abundance of money is not the only form of abundance, it is however one of the more commonly sought after forms of abundance. Though we will now focus primarily upon creating financial abundance, please know that creating any form of abundance is not only well within your capability, but also your divine right as a creator being.

We will now share some of the very most common fears that still remain within the mass collective consciousness about creating an abundance of monetary gains. There is the very prevalent fear of lack, the feeling of being undeserving, and the belief that you cannot be spiritual and abundant at the same time. These are just some of the most prominent fears and beliefs that are held within many on your world regardless of the nationality, culture, race or creed.

Let us briefly address these concerns. As we have said many times again, you cannot fear lack and attract abundance at the same time. The belief that you give the most energy to will be what you successfully attract into your reality. You are living in a universe that is made entirely up of energy. You yourself are energy. The universe is infinitely abundant, and therefore it can never “run out” of energy. What you choose to manifest is entirely up to you. The universe which you exist within is infinitely abundant; you can choose to have a lot or a little, it makes no difference. With that being said, let us assure you that your decision to manifest abundance for yourself does not in anyway take away another’s ability to create their own abundance.

There are also very many who question if they are actually deserving of abundance, holding onto many guilt’s and past regrets that they fear in some way makes them less deserving of the abundance they desire. Let us be clear, abundance is never created based upon who is deserving of it or not. Surely there are many millions of beings who do not live in abundance and yet are more than deserving of it. Abundance is created through your beliefs, intentions and expectation of it.

There are still many on your world who believe that it is more spiritual to live in lack than to live in abundance of material wealth.   To this we smile, remember that you are a divine being choosing to have a physical incarnation; and as a divine being, you will always be privy to infinite abundance.  Where we often see a misunderstanding is in the belief that material wealth will somehow detract from your spiritual growth.  To attract abundance within your physical reality does not make you any “less spiritual” of a person than someone who chooses to block abundance and experience lack.  Spirituality is not something that you can gain or lose, it is who you are.   Though you may have momentarily forgotten your divinity, your spirituality is eternal.  To say it is more spiritual to deprive yourself of material wealth than it is to experience abundance would be similar to saying: it is more spiritual to experience illness than it is to experience an abundance of health.  This phrase would strike many as odd, and yet some still find it difficult to integrate the belief that material abundance is equally their divine right.

If it is your desire to live in lack then we certainly encourage you to do so, and if it is your wish to live in abundance then we encourage you to create this as well.  We do not see either choice as a “mistake” both will result in soul growth.  However we do not want you to feel as though you must deprive yourself of abundance and live a life of lack in order to ensure that you will have spiritual growth.  You are creator beings and you are free to create whatever you wish to experience.

Each of you are divine creator beings who are without question deserving and capable of creating abundance in every form. You are meant to be abundant in love, energy, health, finance, friends, peace and bliss.

We would like to share with you our recommendation on how to welcome abundance of every aspect into your life if it is your wish to do so.  Rather than determining exactly how abundance can flow into your life by focusing so intently on only your income, paychecks, clients, relationships and customers you block the infinite flow of abundance from coming to you any other way.  The universe is infinitely abundant and it seeks to serve.  Allow your heart to open to all possibilities that abundance can come to you.  It may be a gift, it may be an idea, it may be a stranger, it may even come in the form of a trade.  There are an infinite number of ways which all that you desire can manifest.

If you find yourself holding onto beliefs which no longer serve you, we welcome you to call upon us and we will gladly assist you in transmuting these limiting beliefs into one which will support the divinity within.  Remember that we cannot change the beliefs for you; however we will gladly remind you how to release any belief with ease if it is your wish.  Know that we are not teaching you something new, rather we are reminding you what you already know within.

We hope that we have served in you in some way.

In love and light, we are your Angelic Guides

A short update on the energies ~ by Aisha North on July 29, 2014.

“…you are finally starting to unravel the cocoon that has been hiding so much of you from you. ..” Ah, yes, we are awakening, like the butterflies…  ~PB

A short update on the energies
~ by Aisha North on July 29, 2014.

As many of you have already surmised, the mysteries keep getting closer to heart, in a very literal way. And what do we mean by that? Simply that you are finally starting to unravel the cocoon that has been hiding so much of you from you. In other words, you have started to tap into that reservoir of light that you carry within you in a very different way from before, and as you no longer feel any restrictions as to what you can or will find there, you have also found a way to bypass your former limitations and started to go exploring. And, as many of you can testify to, what you find at first will perhaps baffle you more than enlighten you, at least, that may seem to be the case, but it is not. For what you are uncovering, are still merely small fragments of the whole, and as such, you will find one piece of information here and then one there, and they may seem to have no connection at all, and so trying to make up the whole picture seems impossible. But again, this is all about recovering the lost world if you will, that inner world that for so long has been buried under eons of accumulated dust, and just like your modern day treasure hunters, the archaeologists, you go about this in a very careful manner now, and you take your time as you slowly scrape down through the sediments to uncover it all. This may sound like a lengthy process, but it is not, for it is simply tailored in this way in order to lead you into this vast repository of light in a way that will benefit you the most.

You see, if all of the lights were turned on to full blast in one go, you would literally be blinded by what you saw, and so, it will be carefully monitored at first until you get your bearings, but it will not be long before the tempo is increased considerably. And for some, it already has, for this is in all ways an individual journey you are all undertaking. So again we say do not think that you are lagging behind in any way if you see your compatriots exchanging information that seems far and above your intellectual capabilities at the moment. For even if this is an individual journey, it is also one of interlocking paths, where each and every single one of you is moving forward in sync with so many others. For you all play an important part in this complicated process, and it is not one where you will all follow squarely in the same footsteps. Not so, for you will find your own way into this, and as you do, you will find yourself running parallel to others, and at times, you will find yourself seemingly either at the front of the pack or making up the rear guard, but again, this has nothing to do with prowess or capability, this is all about your individual tasks in this huge machinery of light now picking up speed daily.

So again we say do not compare yourself to others in a way that will make you feel less than others for you are not, you simply have a slightly different trajectory to your path than others, and for a very good reason. For the whole that you all make up is sewn carefully together by individual pieces, all tailored to fit exactly into their designated compartment, a compartment that is designed according to the part you are here to play out. So for some, the secrets still hidden behind the door marked “science” will be more alluring than for others, and so, they will have a natural inclination to seek there first. While for others, the topic will simply be this; Love, and so, they will have a natural inclination to explore these halls first. And so the list will go on, for this is not about your own personal journey into you any more, this is all about you seeking to recover all of this hitherto hidden information that you will be utilizing to help the rest of your fellow men and women attain the status of resurrection that you have all attained by now.

For you are the vanguard, the ones that chose to break down the barriers and hack your way through the dense jungle in order to set not just yourself free, but to help so many others to be able to follow in your footsteps. And now, that is what you have started to take to your heart in every way. And so, you will once again find yourself inexplicably drawn to a subject or to a region or to a group of people or to an individual, or you will find yourself stepping back to go even deeper within your own well of knowledge the better to find your own way in this. For the tasks are as varied as you are dear ones, and it is up to each and every one of you to follow that inner light that will show you just how you must navigate in order to fulfill your part of this great undertaking.

For you all know fully well just why you are here, and now, that will present itself to you more and more. But again, it will do so in increments, for it is not by accident that all of this is done in stages. For you are still humans too, and your human mind still have a mind of its own, and if you dive too deep too fast into this well or were given detailed instructions beforehand, you could be apt to get a certain kind of idea stuck in your mind, and then you could suddenly find yourself heading up the wrong creek so to speak. Again, this is not said in order to make you feel less than able, it is simply a reminder that we do not “hide” things away from you in order to make you feel like we are playing a game with you, or that we are pulling your strings for some kind of amusement. No, this has been set up in accordance with your explicit consent beforehand, and so, you already know what to do and how to do it, but it has also been agreed upon beforehand that in order for you to be able to carry out all of this to the letter, you needed to be made unaware of the details as you entered your guise as a human. Again, this is not in any way to suggest that you are not capable to handle this, this is is simply a necessary precaution to help you to succeed in the best way you can, unhindered by any human traits that still may raise their head at this stage.

For you have all come a long way dear ones, in more ways than one, but you are still very much a part of an ongoing process that needs to be taken seriously in the way that nothing will be left to chance. We know that this will make us sound more than a little patronizing to some, but we do hope you will see that we are simply reminding you of something that you already know, and not giving you any instructions for you to follow. For you are all in on this, you are all well informed of every single detail of this undertaking beforehand, so what may seem baffling or even downright irritating at this stage, is all a part of the plan that you have all been instrumental in setting up. So we do not know anything you don’t, our task is simply to be the ones to assist you so that you can fulfill the plan you set up before you came, and as such, you are the ones in charge. For you are the ones making the choices, you are the ones taking the steps, allowing the light to bring you ever closer to attain the goal you set for yourself and for the collective even before you set foot on this planet this time around. And as you have all proved beyond any shadow of a doubt – hopefully also to yourselves – you are all doing a formidable job of it.

And now, as you have all agreed to get this ship moving at an even faster speed, we will do what we can to accommodate your wishes and furnish you with all the necessary tools you may need in order to make this as speedy and as fruitful as possible. Again, this will be done on an individual basis, and so, the tools will be varied as well. Some of you will find that you will get a kind of prompting of some sort, either a subtle one or a more direct one, depending on where you are at at the moment. Others will find that situations will arise that will enable them to jump even more fully into their new “assignments”, while others again may find that obstacles may be removed from their path in an unexpected way.

Again, remember that all of this has been defined by your higher self, and as such, the human part of you may see this is in a very different light. For as we have talked about earlier, mankind’s concept of change differ from what others may see this as, so what to your higher self looks like a much needed aid in order to propel you even faster forward may for the human part of you look like a dramatic and even perhaps unwanted upheaval in some part of your life. This is not the case for everyone, but you will all in some way experience the wind starting to push you in the back as it were, so do not be surprised if you get a surprise or two in the time ahead. And remember, whatever happens, it will be for your benefit, for it is all here to help you to move forwards, and to help you to set yourself free from anything that may still be holding you back or slowing you down. So know that all is well, and listen to your heart at all times, for that is where you will hear the voice of reason, and this is where you will know why you are here and what you are here to do. And know that you are the ones making this change happen, for you are the ones who have said “no more fear, no more pain, no more separation”. For now, it is all about becoming ONE – with all that you are and with All of creation.

Focus On Your Inner Work

Insightful examination of how we can keep our balance in changing times, with ever-shifting energies, and what to expect as we move closer to Disclosure… ~PB

The Annac Blog

Channeled through Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness, Oversoul Teachings

The best advice we can give any earthly seeker is not to take yourselves or your existence too seriously, and there’s nothing wrong with lightening up and enjoying your existence instead of feeling like you have to endlessly strive to do the things you’re on the earth to do.

You’re on your planet to do a lot of wonderful and miraculous things, but you won’t be able to do them if you’re stuck in a staunch or rigid frame of mind that keeps you from finding and acting on your creativity.

What many see as ’creativity’ is creative energy that lives in the minds and hearts of every earthly soul.

You can each access your creativity and use it for a wealth of helpful purposes, and when you realize that you’re creative beings by nature who are intended to use…

PLEASE NOTE that today’s journal covers 14 days instead of the usual seven. The next issue of the journal will be posted on Sunday, August 10.
 

July 28 to August 3
A GRAND WATER TRINE comes into form toward the end of this last week of July. This configuration occurs when three planets are at the same degree of the three water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. It indicates that the three planets are working in harmony with each other, supporting our spiritual growth and emotional fulfillment.
 
Astrologer Bil Tierney, in his book Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, writes that a Grand Water Trine helps us:

    “…respond to subtle undercurrents in life. Our powers of detection are above average, suggesting some degree of psychic sensitivity. This impressionability can be transformed into a creative, productive asset once we are able to harness the delicate emotionality.
    
    “The flowing expression of feelings enables us to withdraw easily into our inner private world where we can experience contentment on deeply subjective levels. We may feel personal gratification when exploring the vivid world of our imagination or reflecting upon the past. We at least feel inwardly nourished and secure during cherished periods of seclusion, privacy, stillness, and rest.”

This Grand Water Trine has the potential to create a sort of temporary, watery buffer zone around us. It can provide the space where we can more easily take care of our emotional needs (Venus in Cancer), explore our deeper needs and desires with courage and honesty (Saturn in Scorpio), and let go of the burdens and dramas of life as we reconnect with our spiritual core and trust life’s unfolding tapestry (Chiron in Pisces).
 
A much-needed respite, considering all that we’ve been experiencing lately.
 
THE TRICKY THING with trines is that they can lull us to lie down in the poppy field, so that we drift off into the world of imagination and dreams and no longer feel concern for where we are going. If we approach a trine that way, when we awaken later, our life’s journey continues much the same as before.
 
But, we can also stay conscious as we stroll through these energies. If we apply discipline and intention, we can use the healing energy and soothing qualities of this trine to manifest that next positive step forward in our creative projects and spiritual growth.
 
In other words, yes, take the time to dream and imagine — but also take your journal with you, so that you can write down the creative ideas and inspirations that come forward.
 
BECAUSE OF THIS poppy-field effect, it may actually be a good thing that the end of this week also brings some challenging planetary aspects. We have a Uranus-Venus square on Thursday, and Mars squaring the Jupiter-Mercury alignment on Friday and Saturday. Squares, as you may know, represent obstacles that need to be overcome if we want to keep moving forward.
 
The Uranus-Venus square is our reminder that as much as we want the comfort of close relationships, we also need to maintain our independence and individuality. We are not meant to overcome our desire for relationship, nor is it necessary to extinguish our desire for freedom. Rather, the challenge is to rise above the strict adherence to old forms of relationship that have kept us from realizing our potentials to have both.
 
THE SQUARE between Mars and Jupiter/Mercury may be a touchy one, even moreso because Jupiter amplifies whatever it touches. Mars is in Scorpio now, and so may be a bit more reactive than we expect. Jupiter and Mercury will be aligned in Leo, adding exuberance and drama to the mix.
 
In the positive, we can channel the extra energy provided by this square to initiate a creative project. At the same time, we will also need to be aware of the obstacle, which may be our need for those around us to appreciate our contributions. A grumpy response or even just a lukewarm reception can ignite some flames of contention and set off a war of words.
 


August 4 to 10
THE ENERGY of the Grand Water Trine continues into the beginning of the first full week of August. Chiron is exactly trine Saturn on Tuesday, opening another door to healing energies.
 
Fears that have lingered just below the surface may come forward to be healed with this trine. While in Pisces, Chiron’s healing modality is to encourage us to trust, even when we feel that circumstances are outside of our control. And yet, Saturn will make sure that we truly GET IT this time, that it is not a surface healing, but a down-to-the-bone regeneration.
 
AS WE NEAR the end of the week, energy starts to move. Thursday’s Neptune-Mars trine aligns our desires with our spiritual/creative sensitivities, making that day an opportune time to move forward with inspired action.
 
On Friday, the Sun and Mercury align in Leo to shine light on our heart’s desire. These two can also provide the energy to communicate that desire in creative ways. Uranus is trine the Sun and Mercury as they align, adding inspiration and courage to the mix. This is the time for breakthroughs.
 
HOWEVER, two other planets are in the picture as well, and they’re somewhat less eager to support the proceedings. Mercury will square Saturn and quincunx Chiron on Friday, and the Sun follows suit with the same aspects on Saturday.
 
With the squares to Saturn, we’re likely to still be hearing the voice of caution, telling us not to be foolhardy. Saturn’s heart is in the right place — it just wants to make sure we’re not so caught up in the moment that we forget to take our longer-term goals and motivations into account.
 
And the Chiron quincunx aspects? Those are likely to manifest as an internal struggle between our concepts of “ego” and “spirituality.” If we want to make progress, we’ll need to adjust our attitudes, so that it is not an either-or question.
 
THE FULL MOON on Sunday, August 10, integrates all of the aspects we’ve just been discussing — Sun conjunct Mercury, Uranus trine Sun/Mercury, Saturn square Sun/Mercury, and Chiron quincunx Sun/Mercury. And, of course, the Moon is part of the dance as well, opposing Sun/Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Saturn, and semi-sextile Chiron. Oh, and don’t forget Neptune trine Mars…
 
So, if that list was a mind-musher for you (it almost was for me!), just go back and read the last few paragraphs about the latter part of this week, and you’ll get a good idea of the energies of this Full Moon.
 
THIS LUNATION does emphasize the push-pull of Saturn and Uranus again — that energy we’ve been working with (and loving, of course) for the past few weeks. The “should I stay or should I go” question should start to sort itself out over the next few weeks, but for the moment, it looks like we’re still dancing the jig in slow motion.
 
Astrologer Martin Goldsmith’s symbol for this Aquarius Full Moon is interesting, given the wildfire situation right now:

    “A rapt audience watches as a great actor, underlit by stage lights, rehearses the final scene of Macbeth. Though there is no set, the audience can clearly visualize the burning castles in the background.”

THE DESCRIPTIVE PHRASES for this symbol include:

    “Confident self-projection; belief in self that engenders the belief of others; exceptional power of visualization and imagination; confidence in one’s ability to handle any situation, no matter how dangerous; changing reality according to what one visualizes as true; creating visionary art vs. conjuring up empty illusions.”
 
Feels like a good description of the combination of planetary influences involved in this lunation. Remember, too, that this Full Moon was conceived at the Jupiterian New Moon on July 26, and so it makes sense that we might be feeling the urge to do something dramatic as we start to work with the energy of this powerful Full Moon.
 
The challenge will be to also make it reasonable and REAL, given Saturn’s involvement, and not just a flight of fancy.

Blessings,

Pam
