Spiritual Unite: The Mystery Of Rising Sign In Your Horoscope

Before we begin and get into all sciency stuff, let’s make sure you are familiar with the concept of Horoscope.
Horoscope is an account of the exact position of all the planets and stars at the time of one’s birth. It attributes towards forecasting future predictions and also the characteristics of an individual. Based on this date, time and location sphere, everyone is assigned a specific zodiac sign which represents a particular set of traits and features. It is also referred to as the life sign.

Daily Good: A Call to Caring

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations. Can we embrace the possibility that we are fully capable of caring globally, in every direction — that the compass of our caring could open 360 degrees?” In his new book ‘Caring’ Tibetan lama Tarthang Thulku dives deep into an exploration of caring the potent antidote it offers to the ills of our time. The following excerpt, authored by his daughter shares thoughts on how to create a more caring world

Elephant Journal: How to Stop Spewing your Past all Over your Present.

An old lover of mine recently posted on social media:
“You’re going to date a few cowards before you meet someone brave enough to love you.”
My initial response: What a fucker.
My sarcastic response: Jeez, thanks.
My annoyed response: But wait…I thought you didn’t believe in love?
My snarky response: Shit…she must be brave to love you.
My snarkier response: Mirror mirror.

EarthSky News: Watch for Taurid fireballs!

Various sources give wildly different dates for the peak date of the long-lasting South Taurid meteor shower (active from late September to late November). November 4, 2018 is one of those predicted dates. Thus both November 4 and November 5, 2018 are good nights to watch for meteors, possibly featuring a higher-than-average rate of South Taurid meteors.

Patheos-Pagan: Pan-Celtic Hoofbeats: Finding Your Patron Deity

I notice a lot of new Pagans asking how to find a patron deity. They often sound worried about not having one yet, or not sure how this miracle is supposed to take place.
Newbies, this is a crone speaking. You are fine as you are. Take your time. You will never have it all figured out, anyway! Run like hell from anybody who says they have!

Inner Journey: 

INSPIRED TO CHANGE?

Are you getting the most benefit from these short Inner Journeys? Here are some ways to progressively stimulate more and more growth and change from these messages:
•Read them quickly for momentary inspiration and move on to the next email.
•Print them and keep them visible so you are conscious of the message during the day.
•Take just 30 seconds and write in your journal as little as one word or a few sentences about how you connect with each message.
•Take just 3 to 5 minutes to relax, reflect and contemplate on the messages that touch you. And then write a short note in your journal.
•When a message really hits home, make the effort to explore the program that delves into that topic more deeply.

At a minimum, if a message strikes any nerve at all, take a few seconds to become aware of what nerve was struck and what it means to you.

This process builds awareness, and awareness brings change and growth – automatically!

“Everyone stumbles over the truth from time to time, but most people pick themselves up and hurry off as though nothing ever happened.”
— Sir Winston Churchill

Beauty

“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.” -Kahlil Gibran

When does life unveil her holy face? When we remove the veil of illusion before our eyes. We see things so obscured by the pressures and demands of our lives. Never mind the forest for the trees – we don’t see the blessings for the bills! But every once in awhile, it catches us by surprise. We are moved by beauty. It is a gentle reminder of God’s presence. Maybe it’s a dandelion growing through a crack in the sidewalk – a sign that life is meant to be lived despite any obstacles. Maybe it is a neighbor’s smile, or a beneficial “coincidence.” In any case, our lives are beautiful, we are beautiful, even if we need to be reminded of it every once in awhile.

Messages From The Stars: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Messages From The Stars: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


We have the capacity to receive messages from the stars and the songs of the night winds. – Ruth St. Denis


101:  As we start the new month take some time to clear and center yourself as we will be focusing on the receiving of divine inspiration and information. Divine guidance comes from many sources,( ie Goddess, Sacred Feminine,God, Angels or Ascended Masters.)  The Divine Source is not only powerful but creative as well so be ready for new and inspiring thoughts and ideas to help you along your path. Remember, don’t try and force things to happen because the best creative things happen naturally. Hold peaceful thoughts for yourself and others and allow creative solutions and ideas to help you today!


As you clear and center connect to your image of the Divine Source. Extend gratitude for what you have and the good things coming your way. Ask for what you need today. (peace, healing, energy, protection, etc.) Commit yourself to being open to receive and allow yourself to see the world with fresh eyes.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite-Malachite. This combination of deep blue and green works with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras, which are essential to receiving divine guidance. It also promotes our individuality and the ability to be flexible in our thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Sept. 20, 2018 ” Live and Dream”

Happy Thursday,

Today’s quote doesn’t imply that we should be irresponsible or neglect our responsibilities. It means that we should embrace our lives and the blessings we have. It tells us to never stop dreaming, scheming , loving, sharing or just plain living this grand adventure called life.

Close Your Eyes and Leap: Cat’s Angel Message for August 24, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Close Your Eyes and Leap: Cat’s Angel Message for August 24, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


The jump is so frightening between where I am, and where I want to be. Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap. – Mary Anne Radmacher


824: Yesterday we talked about using our natural talents to help us create what we want. However,  to make things happen we must also have faith in ourselves and in the Universe. Our angels are reminding us that faith relies upon courage. When our courage wavers so can our faith. Since our thoughts and actions create our reality it’s fair to say that our courage and conviction stem from them as well. We can help ourselves even more by allowing ourselves to be guided through personal truth and values. rely on your inner guidance and your ability to think outside the box. Gather your gifts around you like an armored cloak and move through your day confidence and create the life you deserve!


Archangel Michael helps us by inspiring courage and providing energy and direction. He shows us that we are worthy of good things and that we are divinely protected on our path. The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio has an optimistic energy that he loves to share with those who ask. He assists in both faith and areas requiring spiritual growth. And the Hindu Goddess, White Tara asks us to “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Hematite which  promotes grounding, strength and courage, and Amethyst. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive while dispelling anxiety and fear It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Be Patient: Cat’s Angel Message for August 20, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. – Eden Phillpotts


820: Today the angels are delivering a message from the Divine Source (Goddess/God, Creator, Spirit). “The universe holds a bountiful supply for everyone. All you need is within your grasp. Have faith in yourself and in me. My angels are here to help you, so never be afraid to make requests of them.” Remember that “divine right timing” comes into play here. When we make a request things are set into motion. Sometimes we see quick results and sometimes we must wait. This happens because we are not quite ready for a specific request to be fulfilled and the Universe waits until all is in place before sending it our way. Behind the scenes things are happening and the wheels are turning bringing you closer to your desired outcome.


Archangel Michael encourages us to stay true to our commitments and beliefs, while helping us to clear the way for the arrival of new blessings. The Ascended Master Saint Germain works with Archangel Michael. He also provides courage and direction as well as teaching us the importance of freeing our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. And the Hindu God Ganesh can help to remove obstacles from our path. He promotes the wisdom needed to navigate what life hands us so that abundance can find us.


Try using Ocean Jasper to promote patience and to calm the emotional stress that can happen when we become impatient for results and Fire Agate which allows you to embrace feelings of safety and trust as you navigate your path. It keeps us grounded and offers support when times get hard.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse Will Make History. Here’s What Makes It So Special

This Friday, July 27, a rare lunar event could set off a summer 2017 solar eclipse-level frenzy (who could forget those glasses?) across the globe. While it won’t be visible to the naked eye in the U.S., the upcoming total lunar eclipse will cast most of the rest of the world in a red-tinted shadow.

Daily Good:

Thousand Mile Walk Home

After being sidelined by injury, professor Michael P. Branch vowed his year would be filled with 1000 miles walked. As he logged his miles, the emphasis became one of practice, like a monk’s meditations, and opened his eyes in a profound way: “[The miles] were all walked here, in the high desert, on public lands, within a ten-mile radius of my home. If my bioregionalist experiment of walking more than a thousand local miles each year has involved weed whackers and beer and skipping as well as pronghorn and golden eagles and the wordless beauty of moonlight gleaming on unbroken snowfields, that may be just as well. It is incremental work, but I have had a glimpse of how these walks might someday add up to a journey, in the same way that a life is comprised only of individual days, which are themselves nothing more than a series of moments in which we choose to take a small step, or do not.”

Patheos-Pagan: Traditional Witchcraft… The Beginnings of a Wood Witch

My path into traditional witchcraft wasn’t a straight shot by any means. It was an indication of my true direction, a slightly more crooked path. I started out young, thirteen, already wearing black, and by fifteen doing piercings. Traipsing to the library after school, right to the occult section, reading every book they had, I was simply driven!

Inner Journey: 

BIG MIND, LITTLE MIND

“It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.”
— Sri Ramakrishna

Zen distinguishes big mind from small mind. Big mind identifies with its process, is impersonal and participates universally. Big mind is unlimited possibilities, deeper understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, insight, connectedness, attention.

Small mind is self centred and focuses only on itself. It is compulsive, limited, reactive and mechanical. Small mind feeds on itself — fear reacts to fear, judgment reacts to judgment, anger sparks more anger.

Always seek higher perspectives and you will in time find freedom.

“If a pickpocket meets a Holy Man, he will see only his pockets.”
— Hari Dass

“Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open.”
— Lord Thomas Dewar

Inspiration

“My affirmations or utterances come to me ready-made – not forethought – so that I occasionally awake in the night simply to let fall ripe a statement which I had never consciously considered before, and as surprising and novel and agreeable to me as anything can be. As if we only thought by sympathy with the universal mind, which thought while we were asleep. There is such a necessity [to] make a definite statement that our minds at length do it without our consciousness.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

We are in spirit, and therefore inspired, all the time, even in our sleep. All we need to do is recognize this, and use what is available to us.

-Lissa Coffey
