Re-soulution time, it’s not only meeting another year with desires to aspire and solutions to attain, your soul had plans before you were born and it’s time to reactivate. How to do this: Breathing deeply for a few moments and taking the time to remember the people we love, reconnecting to our dream job, enhancing and learning more about our skills, eating well for nourishment, and beautify our inner and outer radiance. The soul goals are a roadmap on how to get back on track.
We know there will be wobbly periods when we have loved ones step away from us. People are ever evolving and we don’t always stay together. But there is something taught if we’re willing to listen on a deeper level. Many times we’ll be aligned with people who teach us who we don’t want to be. If only everyone was polite. Manners applied, all humans could convey information or wisdom properly, we are all on earth together for only a little while. Being mindful, creating strength, sometimes helping others along. Assisting others sometimes allows us to stay above the fury and the frey.
The steps. your innovation meets your communication skills meets your physical reality, allows for us to stay connected to what we say and what we do. Earth gives us many choices along with our opportunities and the not wanted “tests” or “clearings”. Sometimes it’s hard to have a positive perspective, but with practice: we become.
New Years Resolutions
—What is important. We have an internal barometer on what and who to value. It is an individual ideal. We know there are triumphs and misgivings, and the momentum is to ultimately lead us into a more satisfying lifestyle. The future is ever before us and the present lends itself for modeling and reworking ourselves. Every new year is an opportunity to become stronger in body and mind.
Socrates had a student named Plato, Plato had a student named Aristotle, and Aristotle had a student named Alexander the Great. ~Tom Morris
The Full Harvest Moon (Native American) at 21* Pisces will culminate, September 13, 2019 9:33pm PdT/ September 14, 2019 12:33am EdT (Farmers Almanac).
This Pisces Moon has asked us to quiet down and come back into our deeper self. Whether it be relaxing more, finding a hobby or reducing the worry, we are to find time for ourselves and reactivate. We’ve been in a fast paced world and being pulled in all directions, where do we slow down and remember who we really are… we’re to stop all of the excess and unnecessary drama. We were born to experience a journey of life, to find love, and well-being and make our way easily through goals and success.
We have descendants, associates, or acquaintances who rose to help or squelch us. We sometimes lose our way, we’ve been trying to keep up with “what” “why” or “who”. We can sometimes feel unprepared in dealing with others addictive traits or neurotic patterns. Our self-esteem plummets low on the scale when others bring us into their idiosyncrasies, and our confidence is shattered time and time again. Love can evade us or takes us on merry rides, we have to get back on track. Find time for simple pleasure, take baths, meditate, get a massage, silence our minds, draw, paint, do alone things. Get yourself a good book or write in your journal. No complaining, only solutions and your genuine desires and goals. No need to reflect at this time. You’re being asked to search for your peaceful place, to find rejuvenation, you’re getting ready for a brighter future and to master the goals you set before yourself.

___ Controlling your mind and emotions instead of them managing you. Anger and any over-emotional behavior could backfire if you don’t stay in rational thought. Think of solutions rather than reaction or retaliation. The future is the divine pathway to a great life, but it only takes seconds to make a wrong decision and alter your destiny. Take time for calm thoughts and mindful fixes. Regenerate and Rejuvenate, create the healthy person you wish to be in the world.
—— Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. ~St Francis De Sales (Aug 21, 1567-Dec 28, 1622)
The New Black Moon is the second “new moon” of the month. When you ‘can’t’ see the moon in the sky. Since there isn’t a moon, we are to settle inward and rest, dreaming ideas and plans. Resting gives us the time to think.
Every month we have a New Moon in-between the full moon. New moons are the beginning of the lunar cycle. The sun, moon and earth are in a perfect line, earth being in the middle of the sun and the moon, this gives a calm to the earth as the waters are slower and more relaxed during this lulling and the stars are at their brightest.
This Black moon is an enchanting time, closing your eyes and make wishes. It is a time we are like the butterfly and we’ve left the cocoon behind, only to open our eyes and begin enjoying the journey. Creation calls to make changes easily and gracefully. Everything will become brighter, you will start feeling the warm soft days of summer and enjoy each moment. Romance and the laughter of children are on the rise, smiles and waving, enjoying the activity around you.
So often we suppress and repress our inner natures. The invitation awaits for us to acknowledge a life we can live well. We shouldn’t be afraid, whatever has befallen, we can trust to make future right choices. We begin each day with a new sunrise…a new day assures us.
The Full Buck Moon (Native American) at 24* Capricorn will culminate, July 16, 2019 2:38pm PDT/5:38pm EDT (Farmers Almanac). There will be a Lunar Eclipse with this full moon. When we have an eclipse, it’s time to change or let go of something holding us back. It brings something exciting or illuminating to each of us.
This Full Buck Moon is about coming back constructively into your personal relationships. Knowing how to use your skills in getting along with others and bringing not only the best in them but the finest in you. What constitutes good associations is how you use your manners to establish a progression of goodwill. For some reason many people cannot sustain consistency.
Knowing how to join forces with friends, co-workers, family, using skills and tools to help yourself and others achieve yours and their next steps or goals. It’s can be a career move or a personal one, as the more people you can positively influence the better. Thinking good thoughts can be the first step to rebalancing your personal power, but moving your body in a proactive considerate way is far more beneficial.
Here are some tips to get into a better state of mind and to go forward with the life you’d like to create.
See yourself – Introspectively discern yourself, the pathway to becoming a stable mind starts with who you are and the clarity you possess about yourself.
Are you realistic – You can have goals, even hard to achieve goals but it helps to have a realistic view of how it will happen to get to the goal
Are you over-emotional – How do you react to others. Are you listening, are you sympathetic, are you unconditional
Are you angry – Do you take out your aggression wherever you can. Do you have misdirected rage
Are you responsible – Do you have the energy to achieve the life you want, or are you self-sabotaging
What are the strengths or weakness in your character – Are they fixable flaws, how can you fix them
Be polite and respectful – Basically treat others how you want to be treated. Have integrity, you’ll notice that people will look up to you when you retain this quality
Set good aspirations and you’ll meet like minded people. When you are uplifted by life, people around you catch your exuberance and vibrancy. Embracing your life full of opportunities is what it’s all about, learn to love unconditionally. Real moments and amazing experiences are always waiting for us. It is our destiny to be fulfilled by the bounty and blessings of the earth.
Who do you get along with:
Are you seen as Contructive or Destructive?
Where do you build your life:
How can you be more connected in your personal life or work life: List 3 things if not 3 sentences
___ Getting along with others is in direct proportion of making an effort. We are on our own individual journey and may not see eye to eye with almost anyone. We harness success by staying in a neutral zone. Such as, you can disagree without being disagreeable, you can have your own opinion without having to squelch someone else’s ideas, and you can work side by side with ease and good fellowship. The world is made up of unique individuals, we either see them as vibrant unconditional love or chaotic.
You are born with a set of skills and tools to serve mankind as your purpose. You are given the chance to use the simplest of communication and progressive energy to flow forward in goodwill. We will continue to wrestle with our lovability and success, but make it easier on yourself and create good solutions for you. Know disorderly signs enter your life, it’s the indication to change toward our highest potential.

“In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight” – Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)
Summer Solstice marks the end of the waxing year. And the rays of the sun directly strike one of the two tropical latitude lines. June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, as winter begins in the southern hemisphere. On this day, the earth’s “circle of luminescence” will be from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. The equator receives twelve hours of daylight, as there will be 24 hours of daylight at the North Pole and 24 hours of darkness at the South Pole.
gAll over the world people honor this day as an important reminder of the apex of light and to cast away evil and their problems. Northern Hemisphere inhabitants use June 21 as the day of celebration, but the splendor of light lasts from new moon to full moon.
Worshipping the Sun’s great power, all cultures celebrate in some way. Celts and Slavs dance around bonfires while Chinese marked the day honoring Li, the Goddess of Light. The celebrants of modern and ancient ceremonies tune in that life comes from the sun. It is life giving and life supporting. We’ve recently had the good fortune to have electricity, greenhouses, and shipment suppliers. How will you celebrate? We all may not get a chance to dance around the bonfire but it’s a time to bask in the light, sit in the sun, cast our worries away and awaken to our lives.

November 2-3, 2019
2 Days. $495.00. Book Now
The Mystic Training is learning to sorce. An occult power class to learn “Sorcery” — how to “sorce” answers and awareness as in the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools. You will learn to use the power and energy of the Universe and to be at one with that power. Tara will help you to unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Spirit Guides and Higher-Self, to channel, automatic write, use unique Tarot techniques, and access the path of your true destiny — opening to the deepest and most powerful part of yourself.
Learning to manifest the splendor in all things, we want our relationships, love, success, happiness, family, great health, money, knowledge, wisdom to be the best it can be. Tara will help you unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Mystics, Spirit Guides and Higher-Self for guidance. Included: Meditations, Life-Force Activation, Sorcing techniques, class discussions, and clarification.
We’ll also tap into excellence and merit through the exploration of psychic connection with the other side. Insight leads us out of vagueness. Not everyone seeks to decipher past blunders or catch a glimpse of the future as it might unfold, but those who do want to search for meaning to their dilemmas and gain confidence to live an important and rewarding life. Opening the five senses leads to deeper-consciousness.
Join Tara and a small group of fellow travelers who will work together to create a magical and mystical weekend filled with deep learning of personal and universal mysteries.
