Thinking Magically™ | The Secret of Using Magic (Pt 1)


The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.

– J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan


The world is full of magic and those who claim they believe in it. Just ask any 2 year old. Heck, even ask any 3 year old (or adult) who hasn’t had the claimed belief in magic snipped out of them.

So, I’ll ask again: do you believe in magic?

Of course you do.

We all do whether we admit it or not.

As human beings, we all seek hidden meaning in the things that happen to and around us. We look for patterns (consciously and unconsciously).  And we love to be in control.

The belief in magic satisfies all those needs.

And think about this for a moment: Brian Scholl – professor in the Department of Psychology at…

a sentiment of thank you…

I was taking a look at Robin Williams Astrology, born to be famous…wow…thats for sure. He was crawling out of his skin with his aspects this weekend. His sun was at his natal pluto in the 12th house, and with an extra dose of full moon potency at the opposition he was activated to cleaning up things, but obviously and sadly didn’t act out in a positive direction. Especially with all his water sign feelings and angst progressed in fiery signs to move it out and through. We would think he had a lot of support in his life, but in reality he might’ve acted out alone as he was born with a chart that lacked real friendship. Not to confuse that with real love as we do see women who stuck with him or the people who helped make his career. Though he probably wasn’t an easy guy to live with, if he wasn’t working and moving he didn’t know what to do with himself, his secrets and personal demands were many. I only peeked at the chart without working a few other mathematical equations for more pertinent information, but basically for Robin Williams there were lots of things going on strongly in his astrology in the last 3 years. I’m sorry I’m not advertising more with the MD Ive teamed with, as we work specifically with hard to crack cases and anyone interested can contact me. Rest in Eternal Grace Robin Williams and May your friends and family’s hearts be filled with love and understanding. Now for us: the Joe Public to gain insight on what lessons we need to learn and to be in gratitude for all the laughs. As we associated Robin Williams with a laugh and not a tear. He was one of our role models in the glaring public, a figure of happiness.

Happy Full Sturgeon Moon


Full Sturgeon Moon

By Tara Sutphen


The Full Sturgeon Moon (Native American) at 18* Aquarius will culminate August 10, 2014 11:09am PDT/ 2:09pm EDT (Farmers Almanac). 

The sharing quality of Aquarius movingly accepts worthwhile contacts and experiences and isn’t concerned with whose got what and why as long as “the cup” is passed for all to have something to hold and to have. Fairness is a powerful ally. Instead of hoarding “the oasis” it’s all about how the future belongs to the good hearted, the worthy and children of tomorrow. You are standing in the light of the moon, your personal spotlight. You have been hurt, you have been betrayed, you have been tested…Afraid of falling and being alone. And within our culture we tend to condone this as failure instead of only just learning experiences. Aquarius reminds us of a deeper meaning and a reason. Once again reach for hope. You can have everything you need. Remember you are strong and faithful.

Aquarius is the 11th part of a souls contract as our spirits come to gain entry to the next step of our sojourn. You are to stand on the land, and the top of the mountain staring at the shining stars, stand with humanity in truth, we are one. We are in this together. Creativity is to be realized, technology is to advance, philanthropy to be sought. We’re walking into the future and leaving the past. And when you stop and send wishes to heaven, cry out in joy for all the beauty and all the pleasure, for the comfort and the protection. There is the promise of love and a great life. You are surmounting the odds.

This moon reminds us to make contributions and distribute a generosity of spirit, if we don’t give, we certainly won’t get. This isn’t only about worldly possessions. When your higher mind is meeting your actions you feel good and flow into helpful advancement. Even if we don’t have much, there is a way to offer a small speck of totality to another. And when allowing this richness of our spirit to be shared we can expect our essence of life and breath to harmonize with others. We become fluid in our emotions and movements, trusting in our every day process and more gifts naturally appear and abound. –


“All of us are guinea pigs in the laboratory of God. Humanity is just a work in progress.” ~Tennessee Williams (American Playwright. 1911-1983)




Cheyenne Van Zutphen Writings: In summertime, the sea breeze called me to the great blue deep. I eagerly rushed forth as if the hum of the sirens had lulled me to the empty beach. Naked in the star lit night, a servant of the moon, controller of the tides. I walked to the water transfixed by the waves pulsing with power, spellbound by the strength of that giant white gem that glowed luminescent in the clear sky. It pulled me in and under, into the earths warm womb. The ocean was dark, but the light from the galaxy above guided me to the surface for air. I licked the salt off my lips with each breath before returning to the weightless embrace of the great below. I was half fish, half human…a mermaid bewitched by the twilight. The vast depths had taken me for its own, claiming me as part of the sea.

I had a most beautiful windy three days in the mountains. It reminded me what I value and love about my life. It also reminded me of the importance of being present, getting out of my comfort zone and keeping active.

Putting the Love In

I’ve just spent a week in the Isle of Man. I’ve been many times before but I think I can say that the weather this time was the best I’ve ever known and my head is now full of the colours of the island and the hand crafts I saw there. But what I really loved this time were the lighthouses – and at least the pictures I took were easy to get home.

Isle of Man Isle of Man

We all come back from holiday with souvenirs – be they large or small – and so often when we get them home deciding where to put them is a bit of an issue. There’s something about the romance of shopping at odd times of the day, or after you’ve had a few drinks that leads you to buy things you wouldn’t normally. It’s the equivalent of sale shopping just for the sake…
