Spirit Library: March 2019 – April 2026 Uranus in Taurus – Thinking Outside a Broken Box

Uranus enters Taurus on 6th March 2019 (UT). The planet of radical disruption, unpredictable events and liberating discontinuity in the zodiac sign known for its stubborn resistance to change promises to keep us all on our toes! Since May 2010 when Uranus first entered Aries, there’s been a certain amount of leeway available for the more impulsive among us

Elephant Journal: Is “Maitri” really about Self-Care? ~ Linda Lewis

There’s much confusion these days about the term “maitri,” a Sanskrit term meaning “loving-kindness.”
You often hear people say things like, “I just want to stay home and hibernate, stressless, and not relate. I need a little maitri in my life.”
While there’s nothing wrong with just staying home sometimes, the idea of self-care is not necessarily the Buddhist view of maitri.

EarthSky News: Summer Triangle, signpost for all seasons

Tonight, look for the Summer Triangle. It’s not summer for our northern temperate latitudes, but the three brilliant stars of the Summer Triangle – Vega, Deneb and Altair – are out for at least part of the night every night of the year. Presently, the Summer Triangle shines in the eastern predawn sky. You can often see this star formation from light-polluted areas or on a moonlit night

Patheos-Pagan: Questioning my faith

As a Thelemite use the word faith differently than most people do. I don’t mean a belief that isn’t backed by science. That kind of faith doesn’t work for me because I’m a scientific illuminist. Aleister Crowley described scientific Illuminism as “the method of science, the aim of religion”.

Inner Journey:

SEEK INSIGHTS

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
— Aristotle

INSIGHTS happen only when we shift to a higher, more inclusive perspective. As we grow in wisdom and experience, we become less attached to the form of reality and more aware of its spiritual side – its qualities, values and meaning. As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This allows us to more effectively include others and work with the whole picture.

When there is more in sight, we get more insights.

Try becoming aware of those times when you focus on differences. At those times, STOP and PAY ATTENTION and IDENTIFY SIMILARITIES INSTEAD. See how all parts fit into a bigger picture. Expand your perspectives. Find common causes, motives and needs. Go to another level of thinking and problem solving. Be open to using more imagination and creativity. Shift your thinking from “either/or” to “both/and” and be prepared for more insights.

“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.”
— Andrew Schneider

“We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn.”
— Council on Ideas

Character

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”

-Helen Keller, 1938

Everything that we have gone through in our lives has come to shape our character. How we assimilate these experiences into our personality determines the strength of our character. Life is not easy – and it’s not boring! Every day offers us up opportunities to learn and grow and develop into the person we aspire to be.

-Lissa Coffey

Someone To Listen: Cat’s Angel Message for March 4, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


When you least expect it, someone may actually listen to what you have to say. – Maggie Kuhn


34:  There are times when we just need someone to listen. To share in our joys, and dreams or  our concerns, our fears, or our worries. Like a dear friend the angels and the ascended masters are also here for us. Their job involves assisting us on all levels as well as surrounding us with protection and love. The more often we talk to them the easier it becomes to “hear” their replies. If you ask a question and find yourself receiving repetitive impressions, signs or thoughts then be assured that they have heard and are sending you an answer. Our job is stay open to receiving the information being sent, this will also become easier as our relationship with the divine evolves. Remember, never be afraid to ask for their help. Keep faith in yourself, your inner wisdom and in your Divine support team!


Archangel Uriel is the overseer of Life Lessons. He provides assistance with any problems we may have and helps us to make better choices when faced with important decisions. The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us that we have an unlimited supply of personal power. He helps us strengthen our personal boundaries so that we can be and stay strong in situations where we need to be. And the Hindu goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit. ” 


Our Sacred Stone for the day is Jade. This warm stone can provide aid in problem solving and shows us the path to reaching our goals and actualizing our dreams. It also promotes emotional balance and self confidence as it gently dissipates negativity and brings peace on all levels.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

What We Enjoy: Cat’s Angel Message for February 8, 2019

What We Enjoy: Cat’s Angel Message for February 8, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance. – Epicurus


28: Prosperity and abundance (money and material things) are some of the most common things requested of the Universe.  It’s important to remember that prosperity and abundance covers a wide range and not just the material. To encourage the flow of good things we must first use our sacred tools of  faith and the attitude of gratitude. We must then combine this with the willingness to work together with the Universe and our helpers making it a team effort. Use the new cycle of growth that started at Imbolc to clear away the old and outdated. This will help us to make room for new growth. Today the angels are telling us that our prayers have been heard and reminding us to have faith in the Universe and in ourselves. Things are on track and the abundance you have been working to manifest is on it’s way. Our keywords for today are Gratitude- Team Work- Confidence.


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence.  The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. And, Roman goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Citrine. This happy and sunny crystal draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Change Your Perception: Cat’s Angel Message for February 4, 2019

daily Angel Message sms 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


The dream you are living is your creation. It is your perception of reality that you can change at any time. – don Miguel Ruiz


24: We are being sent a reminder today that  “If you can dream it you can create it”. If the world or life in general has you down then it’s time to make some changes. Our power is at it’s greatest level when we meet life with an adventurous attitude. To do this we must have faith in ourselves and believe with every fiber of our being that our dreams are within reach if we just keep trying. Sometimes things happen quickly and other times we wait. However, behind the scenes wheels are turning, things are happening and pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. For those who aren’t quite ready to take the complete plunge, take baby steps and one thing at a time. Don’t waste time over analyzing so find one thing that you can start building from and start your adventure. Our spiritual helpers are with us all the time offering guidance and protection and their loving energy surrounds you and supports you in every way.


Archangel Michael is your “go to” angel. he helps us to find our courage and motivation needed to face life and it’s challenges. He also provides direction when we feel lost and protection when we feel helpless. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to set aside things we have no control over . This makes room for us to enjoy life’s adventure. And the Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stones for the day include the following.  Jade is a warm stone that helps us to be more self sufficient which enables us to embrace more of what life offers. It stimulates ideas and helps us to see things aren’t and difficult or scary as thought and  Dioptase which helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.

The Fire and Light Of Imbolc: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

The Fire and Light Of Imbolc: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

22:  Today is Imbolc also called Candlemas or the Festival of Light. The Universe is asking us to embrace the faith we have in ourselves and in the new beginnings this faith brings. Imbolc is a time of renewal and our number for today is one power and purpose. Just like the first signs of spring we push towards the light in an effort to grow. As we reach towards the light our faith empowers us to find fulfillment in achieving our dreams and goals. Don’t force to make things happen. This is another lesson that we can learn from nature. Grow with purpose yet allow things to unfold. By doing so we achieve an overall sense of balance which restores us to harmony. Take time today to reaffirm your faith and where you are on your path as you move into this new cycle. Open your mind and heart and guide your thought seeds toward the light.


The celebration of Imbolc honors the Celtic goddess Brigid. This Triple Goddess of flame and light helps us to purify ourselves and our thoughts. She also promotes inspiration, creativity and the fertility needed to help our thought seeds grow and flourish. She tells us “Today we begin a journey towards the light. Gather the seeds that you have collected and choose the ones that represent your path. Tell me of your dreams and desires as you plant your seeds within your heart and mind and allow fire and light to fill you. Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way as you nurture the seeds in your care”


The Sacred Stones associated with Imbolc include the following. Amethyst helps us to move forward. It is also a stone of change and helps us cope with the changes that new beginnings create. Bloodstone helps to get our creativity flowing and infuses our being with courage and vitality. Garnet stimulates our awareness of the now and helps us open the doors to our own unique creative energy and Turquoise provides mental clarity while promoting the peace and harmony necessary to simply allow things to unfold.

Stepping Stones: Cat’s Angel Message for February 1, 2019

Stepping Stones: Cat’s Angel Message for February 1, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want. – Marsha Sinetar


21:  This month is all about stepping up and believing in yourself. Take your faith and confidence to the next level by embracing the “I CAN” and “I AM” consciousness to jump start the new month. Stay focused on what you want to create for yourself and be open to exploring new avenues for growth and transformation. Your challenge lies in the letting go of outdated beliefs. We must make room for the new things headed our way. Remember that tomorrow is Imbolc which symbolizes new beginnings and growth which makes this a great time to start planting  new Thought Seeds.  Sow your inner garden now, and tend to the seeds you planted last month and be be clear about what you want to accomplish.  No need to be too grandiose in your plans as sometimes starting small is better and provides us with more and better options. If you need direction ask the Universe and the angels for additional guidance.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations and for selecting the best thought seeds for this cycles new crop. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back (Like out dated beliefs thought patterns etc.). Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And, Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for the day are Mossy Agate aka the gardener’s stone, which  helps us to nurture our inner garden. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways and Okenite which can be used to help clear away old habits and beliefs.It teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when  we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start.

Thought For The Day: Jan. 28, 2019 “Faith & Hope”

Happy Monday,

Today is a reminder that we are capable of achieving great things. Our quote mentions faith, however hope in tiny amounts can also help us to move mountains. By combining the two we increase our power which propels us forward. Our forward progress helps us to find more grains of sand. Before we know it we have collected enough “grains” to fill a small bag, then a bigger bag and then before we know it they are spilling out everywhere!
