HAPPY THANKSGIVING...from our home to yours!

The first official Thanksgiving festival was held in Massachusetts for three days beginning December 13, 1621. Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official federal holiday to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November beginning on November 26, 1863. Lincoln chose a time each year when the Sun would continue to be in Sagittarius.
Jupiter and Pluto's Conjunction in Capricorn
by Linda Brady

On November 8th and until December 20th the planets Jupiter and Pluto will be conjunct in the sign of Capricorn. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter is also the Father of the Gods in Greek mythology and its glyph is the first letter of the Greek spelling for the god Zeus. Because of these facts, Jupiter is called the planet of expansiveness. It is also called the Great Benefactor because it can be associated with good fortune and blessings. It is the ruler of the sign of Sagittarius and therefore the ninth house. It is the ruler of religion, philosophy, and law, which is man's symbolic urge to create a larger order or to connect with something greater than himself and one's drive towards expansion and growth. It is seen as ruling the period of growth referred to as adolescence. Jupiter's basic principle is towards learning benevolence and grace.

Jupiter in Capricorn feels optimistic when connected to nature, especially the symbol of the mighty oak, its deep roots and broad branches. Being in touch with nature and its rhythm creates more of a vision of abundance and a sense of spiritual grace and a sense of hope. It represents the inner trust and confidence in being a practical leader. It is very responsible, structured, and practical which creates a desire for self-esteem and self- respect. Opportunities will be developed when embracing ethics and honesty. It is the Spiritual Teacher and the Good Father who is wise. In conjunction with Pluto there is the potential for great expansion and transformation.

The planet Pluto is creating the transitional changes necessary to help us develop the attitudes and beliefs necessary for us to be fully planted in the Age of Aquarius. Pluto moved into Capricorn on January 25, 2008, and will leave in November of 2024. During this time....READ MORE...

Each year at Thanksgiving, I enjoy sharing my experience with turkeys. A few years ago when I lived in Jay, Vermont my inner child, Lynnie and I were talking about how her old Pisces beliefs were keeping us from being as prosperous as we could be. She did not want me to charge anyone for my work. Her deep belief was that money was not important. She really did not understand when I told her that we needed money for her to have her treasured cupcakes and to buy food for her beloved dogs. Money would only come if I charged for my work. She was really struggling. As we were talking about this, I looked out of my living room window and saw five large turkeys flying over my deck. I had always heard that turkeys did not fly. But there they were, flying. Lynnie and I were very excited. She was happy because she loves all earthy creatures. I was happy because I knew that they had been sent to us by God and my Soul. I ran to Animal Speak, the wonderful book by Ted Andrews, and looked up turkeys. He wrote that turkeys are the earth eagle, symbolic of all the blessings that the earth can provide. Their cycle of power is autumn. They represent bounty. I told her that we had been given a gift by God and that He wanted us to have good things in our life. If God sent the turkeys and they were telling us it was okay to have money, she was okay with it. I was thrilled. The turkeys had accomplished their mission. We have now incorporated them into our Thanksgiving celebration Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and may you too be blessed by the symbol of the turkey!

Doing it right. Nailing it. Wanting to be perfect. If you are not going to do it right, do not do it at all. Do it the right way (the only way?). Striving for perfection assumes that once we get there we will remain there forever. Perfection is a word associated with the astrological sign of Virgo. Virgo’s desire for perfection can make someone critical, judgmental, frustrated, angry, intolerant, procrastinating, depressive and self-condemning. I know, my South Node is in Virgo. That means Virgo dominated my personality in my most recent lives. So, it also became an early part of my personality in this life. My dad modeled those negative qualities for me as I grew up. On a spiritual level, I picked my father to do that for me. Overcoming these negative traits of Virgo and transforming them into positives was a major challenge for me early on.

Faith is defined as having complete trust and confidence in someone or something. It also means having a strong belief in doctrines based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof. Huh? This will help. Apprehension is the acceptance of information without passing judgement on its validity, often without complete comprehension. That means we really do not understand the information, and we accept it as true anyway. Our religious beliefs are an example of this. I also include science in this category. Our abiding faith in the illusion of objectivity that science fosters on us is a good example.  Pisces is the astrological sign associated with Faith. Pisces and Virgo are 180 degrees apart in the zodiac. They form an opposition. In mathematics, opposites cancel each other (+5 and -5 = 0). The struggle between Pisces and Virgo can certainly cause one to feel apathy (or this zero-ness) early on. Pisces is my North Node in this life. It is my mission to accomplish. I am journeying from my deep-seated need to be perfect to my greatest happiness being realized through faith. I have learned to prefer win/win outcomes to win/lose outcomes. So, my goal in this life is to bring Virgo and Pisces together and have them work with and harmonize with each other…. before I am dead, lol. I think I am over the top of the hill in this regard at the age of 69!    

My Virgo has driven me to seek the perfect, correct, real, objective, absolute explanation of…. everything!READ MORE...
