TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Your money roars now, Leo. Not only do you seem to have more of it, you parlay it to your advantage. Make it go the distance and invest wisely so it grows into a big nest egg. There is nothing nicer than feasting of fluffy omelette in your old age.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

Meditation Branded to Millennials

MeditationMeditation is being re-branded for big-city Millennials, reports Lizzie Simon in The Wall Street Journal.

Central to this effort is The Big Quiet, which “allows New Yorkers to partake in a 20-minute group meditation,” followed by “a rollicking afterparty” featuring live music. “This is for city people who want to take a break and re-charge,” says Jesse Israel, the event’s organizer. It is also for those who want to quiet their minds without any particular religion attached. Jesse says he sees a need for “a new dictionary” that might make meditation and other spiritual experiences “more socially acceptable.”

Jesse’s expanded view of spirituality was sparked while biking through Tanzania in 2014 and noticing “that children faced miles-long commutes to school on foot.” So he began raising funds through his cycling group, the Cyclones, and, through Globalbike, a non-profit, will soon “break ground on a bike-and-rental shop in Tanzania owned and operated by women.” He later formed the Medi Club, “a collective of several hundred young New Yorkers, predominantly entrepreneurs and creatives in fashion, entertainment and technology.” They meet once a month “to meditate” and talk about various “facets of modern life.”

“Millennials are hungry for personal growth,” Jesse says. “They’re hipsters, let’s face it,” says Ian Noble, an attendee. Ian is executive director of SummerStage, which is hosting The Big Quiet and explains that the music tie-in is essential. “We want a reason for people to come and a reason for people to stay.” Jesse sees a potential ripple effect from The Big Quiet, eventually potentially reaching millions. Ganden Thurman of Tibet House US, which hosts weekly meditation classes, likes the idea, suggesting that “maybe life in general is spiritual. Getting in touch with yourself is probably inherently spiritual.”

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Find ways to balance your job with your relationships. But it won’t be easy, Aries. No sooner do you tame your “to-do” list than it conflicts with other obligations. Even trying to explain it to partners will have its pitfalls. You may be misunderstood or your message may get lost in the shuffle. My advice- take a break from anything or anyone causing you extras stress.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You yearn to party all night and put your responsibilities aside but try to find time to take care of the basics before you get down and boogie. Taureans are good at prioritizing. Be practical and do what needs to be done. Then put your energies into good times, your creative dreams and a bit of randy romance. Pacing is everything for the next few weeks.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your home is the center of your universe now, Gemini. So plan more at home entertaining and soiree parties and see how outrageous you can be. But temper your antics around certain friends. They may not understand and you could change the dynamics of certain relationships. Good! Every so often your sedate life needs a little shaking up. Shake, rattle and roll..

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Any home renovation project may hit a snag now as your instructions are either ignored or misinterpreted. But you can be a very forceful communicator if you focus on a global issue or on a  personal project. What this means, Cancer, is that you have a short window to make a difference in the world. And who knows where it will all eventually lead you?

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Enjoy the good things in life now, Leo. You are focused on increasing your personal wealth and might be considering new investments or a new advisor. But it is all a balance - Big risk, big reward or big loss. Decide on how big your appetite really is and be prepared for any outcome. It might be advisable to save a little for a rainy day. Is that thunder, I hear?

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Make your mark on the world right now Virgo. Dust off some old ideas and polish them to a luster. You are given the opportunity to try them out with a new, more appreciative audience of influentials.  Who knows where it can all lead. Of course, expect some bumps in the road as your monetary expectations may fall short of your plans. But isn’t glory enough??

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If you feel more expansive, intuitive and mellow with the world now, just go with the cosmic flow and see where it leads you, Libra. This can be a time of great personal insights that help you remove impediments and go forward in your life. But keep your best insights to yourself for now. Others just won’t understand .. or lead you on the wrong path. You are your own best guide.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Ramp up your circle of friends and gather them together for a big basheroo, Scorpio. In fact, go beyond the usual crowd and  expand your range of contacts. They can help you get things done. But also be practical - people are very busy and can’t always pitch in. So gather good advice and apply it yourself. There will be satisfaction in doing it yourself.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Focus on the long term and start planning your personal goals this month, especially your professional path. Opportunity knocks, Sagittarius. Just be sure that you know what you want and can clearly communicate your needs to those in power. They can help you become successful. Before you know it you will be on top of the heap. Decide which heap.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns feel the need to unleash their personal manifestoes and release them into the world. The reaction may be intense and expansive. Things can get totally out of hand and send you into unanticipated directions.  Will you be the next international sensation? Anything is possible. But don’t share your ideas with the big bosses now. They are simply not ready to hear it.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
You have a tiger in your tank Aquarius and are ready for anything and anyone. So sate your sexual appetite and make your wildest dreams come true. Of course it is possible that your tastes are more mundane? If so find pleasure in the simple things. Instead of g-strings, champagne and truffles, try boxers, beer and popcorn. Hey, it could be a real turn on!

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Put your efforts into building and solidifying one to one relationships now as your need to deeply connect intensifies. You may be surprised at who you are attracted to and how you express your love. It is all good but a bit confusing, Pisces. Don’t feel the need to explain. Actions not only talk louder than words, they will help seal the deal. Seal it with a kiss.




Lucky Numbers for the Week of September 25, 2015

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of September 25-October 1, 2015:

1, 11, 13, 17, 26, 32, 35, 59

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month


Super Blood Moon

Blood moonExpect to see a rare Super Blood Moon on Monday which is bathed in the blood-red light of a total eclipse. It is visible from the Americas, Europe, Africa, west Asia and the east Pacific and is the result of the Sun, Earth and a larger-than-life, extra-bright Moon lining up for just over an hour from 0211 GMT. The Moon will be at its closest orbital point to Earth, called perigee, while also in its brightest phase.

For people younger than 33, this will be their first-ever chance to see a "super blood moon". The last, only the fifth recorded since 1900, was in 1982, according to the NASA space agency, and the next will not be until 2033.
 
But what does this portend? Many people believe that the blood moon, and especially the super blood moon coming on September 27-28, 2015, is auspicious. There are sites such as bloodmoonscoming and  Shemitah-blood-moons

Monday's "blood moon" will be the last in a string of four total lunar eclipses since April 15, 2014, in a series astronomers call a tetrad. These phenomena may be a normal part of the celestial calendar today, but for many ancient peoples it was an omen of bad things to come. Throughout history many cultures have seen (eclipses) as being a sign of doom.

Some in religious circles like pastor John Hagee, author of Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change, say this Supermoon, often called a "Blood Moon" when it takes on a copper color during an eclipse, points to a significant world event like an apocalypse or Armageddon. Hagee, a Christian minister from Texas, suggests that there are "direct connections between four upcoming blood-moon eclipses and what they portend for Israel and all of humankind. The coming four blood moons points to a world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015," he said.

Some predict the end of the world - According to Jonathan Cahn, Elul 29, 5775 or Sep 13, 2015 is when the last implosion of the world economy was supposed to occur (a sharp dip in the stock market occurred on August 24, 2015). This scenario would concur with the celestial configurations and alignment due to the conjunction of the Moon with Uranus, the Father of the Titans, birthed in Chaos on the 2nd day of Sukkot, the day of the Hakhel assembly, the 8th Day. The Money Changers that have capitalized and manipulate the world commerce will use this Shmita timing as planned to usher in the New Order reset.

Mark Blitz, author of Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs, uses another blood moon prophecy for 2015 apocalypse appears in Verse 12 of the Book of Revelation, to support his theory: “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood …” Both ministers Hagee and Blitz warn that it will be on this day that the dreaded Four Horsemen of the Acocalypse reveal their individual missions.

Unlike a solar eclipse, which creates the impression of a bright "ring" of light as the Moon passes before our star, there is no danger in watching Monday's lunar spectacle with the naked eye, the experts say.
