Adversity

That's the name of tonight's installment of the Stonestreet Cafe.  Life feels like a series of challenges sometimes, an obstacle course of difficulties and such.  Is there a way to re-frame adversity as an opportunity?

Sometimes yes and sometimes no.  Sometimes we have the energy to rise to the challenge and sometimes it feels good to collapse in a heap and give over to the crisis, drama and chaos.

As you know, in Julia Land, there's no right or wrong way to to confront trouble, there's simply experimentation...unending experimentation.  If it works, DO IT.

This show came out of an experience I had this week, as a guest speaker for a group of troubled teens who are trying to finish up their high school education.  It was really amazing to stand in the room with them and experience the invalidation that was radiating off of them.  These are kids who are on the cusp of discovering more of who they are and how to move in the world...kids who've had a pretty rough start.  It brought back feelings and memories of my own high school experience...not my favorite time period!

Some of the kids wanted to know what I believed in and as the questions rolled in I found myself wanting to say WHO CARES...what do YOU believe in?  I'll be elaborating on my experience tonight in the Stonestreet Cafe, so please tune in to 12radio.com at 7pm PST/10pm EST.  If you miss the show, check out the archives tomorrow or Saturday for the edited version.

On another note, we're having tons of sales on readings at 12listen this October.  We're going to be trick or treating every Tuesday and Thursday.  If you want to stay abreast of these specials, please sign up for 12promotions.  This will keep you up to date on all our surprise sales.  I'm also lowering the price on my email services for the next two weeks.  If you've been struggling with abundance, now's your chance to get a reading at about 30% off.

I would love to hear from you!  Let's take a look at the adversity in your world and find a way to re-frame it.  I'm available on weekdays from about 8:30-1pm PST and Sundays for the happy hour from 1-4pm PST.

Blessings to you on this lovely, last day of September.  The energy is strange...you are not imagining it.  COME GET A READING!

Fortune Forecast 9/27 - 10/3

CONTEMPLATE THE BEST USE OF CREATIVITY 

We've got more than enough energy to go around this week.  The challenge now is finding plentiful outlets and ways to express it.  If the energy gets dammed up, it will cause problems.  We need motion and action now but with consciousness.  Flailing about is a possibility if we let the energy run amok and it will be tough not to.  This is primal energy, so get out and walk it off if necessary.  Keep moving and applying this amazing, flow of energy to areas in need.     

Monday 9/27
BIG CHANGES ROLL IN 
Things are unfolding that we didn't anticipate.  It's a challenge to stay relaxed with so many new questions arising.  Stay fluid with it!  Think of energy in terms of wave patterns.  things won't always be this intense...it's just a wave rolling over us.  Let yourself get carried away. 

Tuesday 9/28
CONDUCT THE FIRE 
Creative energy can feel urgent at times.  Today, we find ourselves struggling to channel the immense amounts of energy coming through.  Other people seem off kilter and it's hard to find stability in the midst of all this craziness.  Let the fiery forces come through.  Direct them productively, if possible.

Wednesday 9/29
SEE FURTHER 
It's time to look further out.  Pull away from the details that keep us stuck in small struggles and see the distant horizon.  Now is the time to clarify goals and plans.  For those who are confused about what's wanted, clarity is coming.  Get ready to plant new seeds.  

Thursday 9/30
tune in to the Stonestreet Cafe at 12radio.com, 7pm PST/10pm EST 
PLAY WITH PASSION 
Desire is distracting today.  Follow it into unfamiliar territory.  The feelings will not subside until exploration has taken place.  In other words, trying to repress the urge to drift and wander will actually cause harm.  Let it all go in favor of the pursuit of something new.

Friday 10/1
LET IT OVERFLOW 
Our hearts are being asked to open, to blossom.  Open up and let the energy flow.  Every exchange is an opportunity to learn more about who we are and experience the power of love.  Be willing to take a risk in terms of vulnerability.  Rewards will manifest from this space.

Saturday 10/2
SPARKS FLY 
It's a fiery day and the energy is high.  We can move with it into exciting new opportunities or try and fight it and feel awful.  Now is the time to express some of the intense feelings and thoughts that have been bottled up.  Let it all out and enjoy the clarity that follows.

Sunday 10/3
Stonestreet Cafe replays at 12radio.com,10am PST/1pm EST
PERFECT THE MESSAGE 
It's important that we know where we stand today.  We will be asked to explain our vision in detail.  Be prepared.  Sometimes people can't hear us because we're not able to articulate our thoughts.  We can clean a lot up now with a little bit of focus and a good bit of grounding.

need help with the energy this week?
IF IN DOUBT...WAIT

There's simply no need to rush into anything until we feel ready.  There is pressure this week to move quickly.  We don't need to succumb to this pressure.  In fact, we're better deserved by waiting until the time is right.  That moment is coming.  Get ready.

Good Fortune Scopes 9/26 - 10/2

ARIES
You're more than ready to move on Aries.  In fact, you've been chomping at the bit to get free. It's difficult to get the space you need to get behind an inspired idea.  Practical concerns feel distracting but taking care of the little details will get you the space you need.  Keep on going.

TAURUS
New sights and sounds are beckoning you to break out of your routine, Taurus.  You may be reluctant to rock the boat, so dear is your stability but it's time.  Boredom will become more and more of a problem if you continue to ignore the call of the wild.  Resources are coming your way.

GEMINI
A situation that's been unfair is coming to a head.  The energy in this space is volatile and difficult to mange.  Make sure you step away for rest here and there Gemini, as it all plays out.  An opportunity to magnify your abundance is in the works.  You are ready for new challenges.  Indulge in activities that help relax you.

CANCER
The week begins with a rather heavy vibe but gets better with each passing day.  Feelings of rejection are difficult to manage and you're taking it all way too personally, Cancer.  Good fortune can be yours is you look away from the mess that's preoccupying you.  Plant a new seed or two and you'll cheer right up.

LEO
A new project is gaining momentum.  The effort you've been pouring into this can be directed elsewhere as this space is now standing on it's own.  You're ready for a journey of sorts.  If you can't hit the road, find ways to explore the exotic through books, movies and more.  It'll give you a jump start.

VIRGO
It's time to start figuring out what's wanted and needed Virgo.  You are bursting with brilliant ideas, which is your favorite?  You have the resources you need to make things happen now.  Support is showing up in the strangest ways.  Make the most of this fertile time period and grow your dreams.

LIBRA
You're restless and in need of something new and quick, Libra.  If you don't get some stimulation soon, you might just explode with frustration and boredom.  Even small breaks in your normal routine can help you settle back down and find a new groove.  You are rich in many ways.  Feel it.

SCORPIO
You feel like walking away from something that's gotten painful.  If you leave now, you'll miss out on the best part.  Try to hang in there Scorpio and work with the complex feelings you're experiencing.  An opportunity to expand your career and money space has powerful potential.  Investigate further.

SAGITTARIUS
A burst of inspiration has you seeing things in a fresh way.  It's exciting and nerve rattling.  It's a challenge finding healthy outlets for all the creativity flowing through you.  You might be tempted to take a short cut but in the long run, what looks like a short cut is actually a huge tangent that ends up taking you further away.  Beware. 

CAPRICORN
Open your mind Capricorn.  You've been hanging on to a certain way of perceiving things and it's just not allowing for enough magic.  Good things want to happen in your world.  Will you get out of the way and let it in?  You're on the cusp of discovering more about who you are.  this will bring a wave of new power.  Play nice.

AQUARIUS
Things are starting to move a little more quickly than you want them to.  It's hard to keep up with all the competing demands in your world, Aquarius.  You are in the process of deep change and might feel disoriented by it all.  Don't panic!  let your mind wander into new places.  Open, open, open to more.

PISCES
Relax into the love that's being offered Pisces.  There's no need to try and figure it out or worry about what's ahead.  Be here now.  A conflict in your environment is making it hard to chill out.  You don't need to take on the responsibility of healing this.  Watch your boundaries and pull back.  It will all settle down soon.


MAY GOOD FORTUNE SHINE ON YOU ALWAYS!

Harvest Moon

The autumnal equinox is upon us and just to make the Sun's shift into Libra more exciting we have a Full Moon at zero degrees of Aries, early this Thursday morning.  I'm going to be talking about the opportunity that this particular Full Moon brings us in the Stonestreet Cafe Thursday night at 12radio.com.  The show is called PSYCHIC WEATHER, so you can imagine what it's about.  Let's explore this space, what it means and how we can work with it all more consciously.

The Full Moon in Aries gives us an opportunity to have a fresh start in any area that needs it.  Aries is the beginning, the most primal of all twelve signs of the zodiac.  Aries is the part of us that's restless for new challenges, and irritated with the status quo.  We all have parts of our lives that feel stagnant and slow.  Now is our chance to energize and shake things up.

The equinox signals that the seasons are shifting and we might notice our priorities and perceptions are shifting as well.  Stay fluid with it and tune in to this week's broadcast of Stonestreet Cafe, Thursday at 7pm PST/10pm EST at 12radio.com for more dimension and depth around the notion of PSYCHIC WEATHER.

In other news, I'm having a great time connecting with so many of you via email readings.  I'm so glad that we have this new option.  Check out the One Issue in Depth reading at 12listen.com.  I've been getting great feedback on these readings and one of the wonderful things about these readings is having a written document to reflect on over time.  Come check it out!

I hope you're having a lovely Equinox.  What a beautiful world we have...

Fortune Forecast 9/20 - 9/26

UNEXPECTED CHANGE BRINGS OPPORTUNITY

We'll need to stay pretty loose over the next few days.  There are quickly changing conditions that need to be adjusted to.  It's not that easy.  We are being tested on our ability to stay in the moment and to recognize that some things are beyond our control.  Staying relaxed and resistance to panic are helpful traits.  If we can just let everything settle back into place, we'll see that there's nothing to worry about.  A clean slate can be a wonderful thing.

Monday 9/20
THE PACE PICKS UP
Things are starting to move more quickly, which leaves us with less time to contemplate and consider.  It's time to jump in and do the best we can.  Things will not go perfectly today.  What counts is willingness and innovation.  Get to it!

Tuesday 9/21
ROADBLOCKS DEVELOP 
We're being thwarted at every turn today.  It's frustrating but it's not reason to sink into superstition.  We did not create the complications and searching for answers in this arena will lead nowhere.  Cultivate some amusement and wait for the coming opening. 

Wednesday 9/22
BRIGHT IDEAS ILLUMINATE AND INSPIRE 
New ways of seeing and thinking about things is helping us get back to our focus and our priorities.  Life feels easier now.  Dreams feel more possible and this makes even the most mundane tasks seem exotic and interesting.  Enjoy the refreshment.

Thursday 9/23
tune into the Stonestreet Cafe at 12radio.com, 7pm PST/10pm EST 
TRUTH BRINGS FOCUS
It's time to stop pretending that what we want, is actually taking place.  Let's take the blinders off today and get a good look at the terrain ahead.  Denial is a problem that could lead to even greater problems.  Face the discomfort and get free.

Friday 9/24
A BIGGER ARENA AWAITS
It's time to move to bigger challenges.  We're feeling the fear and trepidation today but it's time to go.  If we try and hang on to the comfort zone we've created, we'll end up even more dissatisfied.  It's time to leap into something new with no assurance of success.

Saturday 9/25
WISDOM SHOWS UP
Just when we need answers, they appear.  It's feels great to tap into a deeper layer of knowing.  We might feel foolish for being so nervous about certain changes that are coming to pass.  It's all good after all.  Wonderful!

Sunday 9/26
Stonestreet Cafe replays at 12radio.com, 10am PST/1pm EST 
DELAYS CAN NOT BE HELPED
There's just nothing we can do to make things different today apart from pulling back and retreating to the inner world for a bit of a tune up.  Make things better in this sacred space.  Work to accept what's unfolding.  Let the creator part rest a bit.

need help with the energy this week?
STAY LOOSE

Think of being a river rafter, going around the rocks and down the rapids, letting your instincts tell you how to move.  Do it!

Good Fortune Scopes 9/19 - 9/25

ARIES
You can feel the pull of ancient awareness, Aries.  You know things but have no idea why.  Who cares?  Enjoy powerful insights and put them to work.  Things are moving faster and it's taking a lot more attention to keep things orderly.  Let it all fall apart so that you can put it back together even better than before.

TAURUS
You can make as much magic as you want, Taurus.  It's totally available for anything and everything you need.  Keep from spiraling into criticism and negativity.  As your heart and your head have equal opportunity to share what they know, you can expect a big leap forward into something delightful.  

GEMINI
Creative energy is making it easier to accomplish things, great and small.   You are charismatic now and can easily attract the connections you need to further your plans.  Happiness is pouring out of you and you don't know why.  Things are far from perfect and yet you're exploding with hope.  It feels so, so good.

CANCER
Slow moving changes are getting you in a better, more fruitful position.  Be patient and l things come together for you, Cancer.  Be cautious with resources now.  You need to conserve and have an idea of what's on hand.  When a new passion takes root, you'll e ready to jump in with fervor and everything you need to make it real.

LEO
You're climbing out of clouds of confusion and seeing the terrain more clearly.  It will be easier to travel with your new found clarity, Leo.  When something you want appears, reach out and grab it before it runs past.  Fortune is bald in the back, or so they say.   Balance is essential and not easy!  Energize dormant spaces.

VIRGO
It's time to surrender to the unknown.  No amount of thinking and planning will prepare you for what's coming, Virgo.  It's wonderful and scary at the same time.  You feel alone and unsupported but the greatest support of all is available...you.  Find alternatives routes to the desired destination.  Walk around the obstacles.

LIBRA
Balance the intensity inside you, Libra.  You're tied up in internal conflict and it's time to lay down the swords.  It may come down to finding healthy distractions and just walking away from it for a bit.  Love and support is available but you're having a hard time taking it in.  Stop the self-deprecating vibe from taking over. 

SCORPIO
Your heart is bursting open and there's nothing you can do to stop it.  It feels good and bad at the same time.   You are bringing more of who you are into play now.  It's powerful and effortless and somewhat shocking.  Have fun with it.  A clear plan will help you get where you want to go with no trouble and in no time.

SAGITTARIUS
It's time to get with friends and loved ones and shore up those bonds.  Know your community of support, Sagittarius and take some time to consider what you're willing to give to the group.  Fears are potent this week and you might not like every feeling that comes over you.  New ideas will help you navigate your path with grace and aplomb.

CAPRICORN
Confusion is a problem this week.  You're generating the crazy, Capricorn.  It's ok as long as you stay awake to what you're up to.  If you start trying to find blame for your troubles, take a deep breath and tune in to the quiet voice inside.  This voice will give you the guidance you need to leave boredom and stress behind in favor of success.

AQUARIUS
You are in a great position to capitalize on opportunity when it pops up, Aquarius.  Everything is in place for you to succeed.  Delays and troubles have been vexing for a while now and you might be exhausted as a result.  Buck up!  A project needs the finishing touch.  Give time and attention to completion before skipping away into the future.

PISCES
You see things so clearly now, Pisces.  Everything is shockingly simple.  It's much easier to decide what and when to go when you see so far in the distance.  Others might be put off by your vision this week.  Oh well.  New ideas are powerful and have you excited.  A whole new world is abut to unfold.  You can feel it in your bones.

Changing Days

We're coming in to my favorite season. I am loving it.

Just finished editing 3 shows for the archives at 12radio, so get over there and give a listen.  I'm all caught up just in time for show #23...MY LIFE IN POLITICS, broadcasting 9/16...just me reminiscing about my childhood in a politically, active family.  I interspersed the conversation with some great oldies by artists like Patsy Cline, Gene Vincent, Skeeter Davis, Don Willis, Glen Glenn and more.  Think 50's.

Life is good...perhaps not easy but good.  I've been a witness to more than a handful of tragedies lately and those experiences tend to throw me into questions about what it is to be here and to be human.  Honestly, the more shows I do, the more questions I find.

It'll feel good to take a break from the questions and tell some stories in the Cafe this Thursday.

I hope all is well in your world.  Catch me for a reading at 12listen.com Thursday and Friday morning starting at 8:30am PST/11:30am.  I'll also be available this Sunday during our happy hour from 1-4pm PST.  Of course you can always order a reading by email at your leisure.

Fortune Forecast 9/13 - 9/19

OPEN TO A BRIGHT IDEA 

Inspiration is easy to come by this week.  The small, innocuous thoughts that move quickly through us contain the seeds of successful, future endeavors.  Take note.  Start writing this stuff down.  Small steps to make some of this stuff more real will pay off in a major way.  Even if we don't end up at the pictured destination, we'll end up somewhere interesting and rich.  Be willing to try new things this week, just to see what happens.

Monday 9/13
DON'T LOOK BACK 
There's just no point in second guessing decisions we've already made.  Go forward, perhaps with nothing more than faith.  It's all going to work out.  The challenges we're wrangling with, so fierce now, will abate in intensity soon.  Looking back is taking energy away that we can use now, to make things more of what we want.  Keep moving forward.

Tuesday 9/14
GET READY FOR MORE 
A big wave of creation is coming.  It's time to get ready to receive.  Stay supple, stay loose and be ready to adjust to quickly changing circumstances.  Something amazing is taking shape.  Go on gut instincts when considering how to respond to the opportunities unfolding.  If needed, take a deep breath now and ready the mind and body.

Wednesday 9/15
WISHES COME TRUE 
The good stuff is everywhere and it's for everyone.  Will you open up and see it?  It's waiting to be discovered.  If we're preoccupied with problems and heavy stuff, we might miss it.  Be ready for surprises today and for opportuniyt in many disguises.  Let go of expectations and face it all with a fresh attitude.

Thursday 9/16
tune in to Stonestreet Cafe at 7pm PST/10pm EST at 12radio.com
TRUST INTUITION 
Psychic phenomena is potent today and there are a myriad of clues ad hints to help us along.  Our bodies are telling us which direction to go but without a satisfying why, it's hard to follow through.  Sometimes we have to go without knowing why it's a good idea.  Today test our skills and abilities in the arena of trusting self.

Friday 9/17
MAKE IT HAPPEN 
It's time to go all the way and push an agenda.  The energy is working in our favor when we act assertively and directly.  Go after it.  Do it.  Get it.  There's noting in the way except the dregs of an old inertia.  Shake it off and leap before looking.  The landing will be soft and the rewards many for those who throw themselves all the way in.

Saturday 9/18
LET IT ALL COME APART 
It's okay to let things unravel today.  We've had a few days in a row of high, productive energy.  Now we can rest and unwind the tension.  Flop around.  Stay in bed.  Loll about.  Notice the need to control and just say no.  When we let it all come apart, we have a chance to put it back together in a fresh way.  Go back to the beginning now.

Sunday 9/19
RELAX INTO VICTORY 
Take in the feeling of a job well done.  It doesn't really matter what the outcome is, what matters is the willingness to try.   Life is good and it's good right now.  Take it in and savor the loveliness of being alive, no matter what challenges surround you.  Relish what's right in the world.  The more we look, the more we see.

need help with the energy this week?
LET GO OF LIMITS

Push out on what's possible.  Stop saying no and start looking for the repetitive patterns in dreams and desires.  We can have it all when we start to open to it.

Good Fortune Scopes 9/12 - 9/18

ARIES
It's time to take charge, Aries.  Waiting for the ideal time just isn't going to work.  Go now.  You'll have to battle some minor chaos but it's nothing compared to what you bring to the space in need of confrontation.  A new opportunity comes out of the mess.

TAURUS
Find a way to ground the intense energy moving through your space.  It's important to blow off steam, Taurus.  You're bursting with creative energy that needs to be in motion.  You can feel things are starting to move and it feels so good!   Get ready for a big step up.

GEMINI
Your heart is overflowing with care and concern.  You are spreading good cheer everywhere, Gemini and it's lovely.  It's time to choose a path.  Both are great, no need to worry.  Just go where you want to.  It's easy to see through nonsense from others.

CANCER
Dig and and hold steady for a bit of a storm.  You have everything you need to come to the other side without harm, Cancer.  Try not to overreact.  Racing thoughts make it difficult to find rest.  So much to look at and think about.  Be open to alternative points of view.  See from a new angle.

LEO
You're fed up, Leo so go ahead and move on.  Hanging on and hoping things will get better is not the best idea.  It's time to discover something new.  Healing energies are potent and they are asking you to surrender.  When you see something you want, grab it as it runs by.

VIRGO
You're not sure where to invest your energy and attention this week, Virgo.  You have more than a couple of great opportunities.  Give yourself a little more time to contemplate before choosing.  Mood swings are difficult to deal with.  Don't try and control how the feelings unfold.

LIBRA
Worrying won't make it better.  Your world has a heavy vibe this week, Libra but there's support available.  Reach out and you'll see many gifts coming your way.  Listen to the heart when navigating.  Don't let logic keep you from discovering something new and shiny.

SCORPIO
Confusion and doubt is lifting from your space.  It's as if you can suddenly see much further and with total clarity.  What a relief!  Passionate feelings are looking for expression.  This energy needs an outlet.  Make peace with some of the background noise in your head.  This will quiet it.

SAGITTARIUS
You're not getting the whole story but what to do, Sagittarius?  You don't even know the right questions to ask to get to the bottom of the mystery.  Give it time and everything will be revealed.  Get out and make contact.  You're in a lucky space.  Enjoy it.

CAPRICORN
Being in a hurry isn't helpful.   You simply can't push whatever it is that's driving you nuts, Capricorn.  Make space for it to play out.  It's time to break into new territory and discover fresh terrain.  Regrets and ruminations about the past keep everything stuck.  Move on now.

AQUARIUS
Relax into someone's care.  Let there be an exchange of love and affection.  It's the right way to go this week, Aquarius.  The spaces you want to move on are temporarily off limits.  Take this time to enjoy what's happening in the moment.  Be here now.

PISCES
Go after what you want Pisces.  You keep waiting for the right time but it's here.  A part of you is terribly bored and unwilling to make changes.  Change is coming for you.  There's no need to look for it.  Tie up loose ends and get ready to launch into something new and fantastic.

MAY GOOD FORTUNE SHINE ON YOU ALWAYS!

The Virgo Blues

Here we are basking in the waning of the New Moon in Virgo.  Virgo is a sign that seems misunderstood to me.  There are mysteries to Virgo that we can hardly imagine.

Thursday night in the Stonestreet Cafe (12radio, 7pm PST/10pm EST), I'll be offering a show called GOD LESS with an old friend joining me to talk about his experience of atheism.  It's pretty interesting and it got me thinking about my own feelings and experiences of God energy.

Virgo is so deeply capable of devotion.  It's the part of us actively seeking places to invest our healing energy.  Healing energy invested in one person or one project can get out of balance.  Virgo reminds us to look for something bigger to devote ourselves to and that leads to God and other stuff.

Virgo wants to perfect things that need perfecting, so perhaps that's where the perfection aspect of God energy comes in.  I don't know.  All I know is that this is a complex reality rife with opportunities for bliss and on the flip side, opportunities to suffer.  We don't seem to have much control over how things play out and the good/bad stuff that comes our way.

I didn't always feel this way.  I used to be much more fervent in my feelings about spirituality and the way I saw the world unfolding.  I felt certain that we are creating this reality and that there was a degree of control to be had.  Not so sure anymore.  Call it life experience, call it this time period but there's so much suffering going around, that I've found myself questioning and wrestling with my notion and understanding of God.

I can see how so many people would have a bitter feeling towards any notion of God.  How could God set this up for us?  This reality of dichotomies?  All I can say is, we must be some kick ass beings to be able to handle the little, blue marble.

And that leads me back to God.  We ARE creating this reality but we have no understanding of how it really works.  That's what I see.  And God's off somewhere having a chuckle with the kick ass being part of us as we fumble around down here in our bodies.  For the body, for the part of us that makes this real, it's not so amusing.

Virgo shows us all of this and more.  Virgo can be the sweetest innocence or the most bitter shade of jaded.  Thank you lovely Virgo New Moon for bringing awareness to our bodies and our world while at the same time reminding us that something much more vast is taking place is spaces we just can't see yet.  Help us connect with the innocent and wonder filled side of you!

If you're in it today, you're right where you need to be.

Fortune Forecast 9/6 - 9/12

VICTORY

Here's to being recognized for a job well done.  CHEERS!  We need to take it in, the energy of victory great and small.  Bask in it, play in it and find a degree of rejuvenation.  We've weathered big shifts in the energy and we can now rest and reflect on the strengths that emerged in us under duress. 

Monday 9/6
NEW IDEAS INSPIRE
It's easy to get ahead of ourselves today, we're flooded with so many amazing ideas and possibilities.  The mind is exploding with hopes, wishes and dreams.  It's difficult to keep this energy flowing.  It needs an outlet. 

Tuesday 9/7
A PAINFUL SPLIT TAKES PLACE
We knew this time was coming and yet we find ourselves unprepared for the level of grief stirred up.  There's no way to step away from the feelings.  Move through it.  Once this lifts, the view will look much more expansive.

Wednesday 9/8
OPEN TO SOMETHING NEW
For those feeling restless and bored, relief is at hand in the small act of seeking what's fresh and interesting.  This requires a degree of willingness to wander.  Get out and jump into life by sampling things you would normally pass by.

Thursday 9/9
Tune in to the Stonestreet Cafe at 12radio, 7pm PST/10pm EST
MOOD SWINGS INTENSIFY 
It's hard to figure out where the feelings are coming from today.  We might be overwhelmed by everything that's unfolding.  It's best to go with it instead of trying to resist.  Let the energy flow without trying to make it make sense.

Friday 9/10
GOOD THINGS ARE COMING 
You can sort of feel it in the air today, that something amazing is about to take place.  Now it's just a matter of being patient as the magic comes together for us.  Be sure you're ready and willing to receive it when it shows.  Take away the limits.  

Saturday 9/11
CONFUSION TAKES HOLD 
Nothing makes sense today.  We're getting mixed messages and it's very difficult to figure out what's what.  Deep in the cells of our bodies, we can feel what's true but it's almost impossible to get there.  Hold off on big decisions for now. 

Sunday 9/12
Stonestreet Cafe replays at 12radio, 10am PST/1pm EST 
CONNECT AND FEEL REVIVED
Put aside responsibility in favor of gatherings and celebration.  It's been an exciting week and we need a moment to take it all in.  Find solace in joking and play with loved ones.  It's one of the things we're here for.

need help with the energy this week?
RAISE THE LIMITS

Are we holding urselves back without knowing it?  Some of us create well but have a hard time letting it in when it comes.  The big lesson this week is about receiving and just letting things come our way.  Notice the effort and just say no.  It ca all be so much easier when we relax into it.  Let the praise and validation from recent success sink in and bring gifts.

Good Fortune Scopes 9/5 - 9/11

ARIES
Your intuition is trying to show you were to go, Aries.  Will you listen and respond?  It's going to get louder and louder until you do.  Worrying about what seem like a lack of resource as a wasteful use of time and energy.  You have everything you need, readily available.  Balance the thinking and the feeling and you'll go far, fast.

TAURUS
An opportunity to grab what you want is coming your way.  You won't have a lot of time to consider all the implications.  you either want it or you don't Taurus.  Go with instinct today.  You're being asked to share what you know.  This will help you see your expertise in action, which will boost your energy and get you back in the abundance game.

GEMINI
That amazing mind of yours is a problem sometimes, Gemini.  You're all over the place and are tired to boot.  This is making you vulnerable to seeing the worst case scenario.  Calm down!  You're being way too hard on yourself for conditions you don't have a lot of control over.  You'll see new places to put your energy this week ad it will get you in a much better head space.

CANCER
This is an exciting time of awakening, Cancer.  Everything feels so intense and amazing, even though it's challenging and uncertain at the same time.  You'll soon get a break in the energy and have a chance to rest.  A new interest has you totally fired up.  Enjoy the feeling of being in love.  This new passion will carry you far and expand your reality in amazing ways.

LEO
Being in love feels good.  Give into it Leo.  Surrender into the flow of that divine, healing energy.  An internal conflict is posing a challenge.  You're being hard on yourself and struggling to repress a desire.  Why?  There are many opportunities afoot for you this week.  Enjoy seeking them and jumping in without hesitation or self-consciousness.

VIRGO
The wheels are turning and everything's moving.  You were on the verge of despair about some of the stagnation in your life but worry no more Virgo!  Powerful energy is infusing you with the strength you need to conquer and succeed.  Grab the tiger by the tail and use the added charisma you have now to forge powerful, new connections.

LIBRA
Healing is coming for you, Libra.  The events of this week will surprise, delight and freak you out.  Get ready for a bigger arena to play in.  You're being recognized and recruited.  Be discriminating and choose what will be the most engaging.  You have a lot worth preserving and protecting.  Go forward knowing your worth.

SCORPIO
It's time to consider all the options.  Open up and let it all float around for a bit.  You don't have to decide, though you'll feel pressure to do so.  Slow down and just let it be.  You're completing a cycle and need time to adjust to the changes.  An adventure will provide the emotional inspiration you need.  See, taste, touch, smell and hear new things this week.

SAGITTARIUS
Dig in and defend what's important.  Most of this will take place in your own head, Sagittarius.  Figure out what you have that's worth investing in and what's worth letting go.  Your mind is racing ahead, figuring out how to travel the path.  This can create chaos.  Bring your attention back so that you can see what needs to be done here in order to get over there.

CAPRICORN
Decision time is here.  If you pick now, you'll get a shot of energy to help you make it happen.  If you delay, stagnation sinks in.  Go now and don't look back.  There's no way to make a mistake no matter what you choose.  It's a challenge to balance patience with passion.  You'll get lots of practice this week, Capricorn.  Have fun with it.

AQUARIUS
You've got a ton of mojo this week, Aquarius.  You can make things turn to gold, or sink into problems.  It just depends on what you invest your energy in.  Old wounds are close to the surface and are causing feelings of paralysis.  No worries!  You can get through this and you will with a great deal of aplomb.  Break the steps into smaller pieces and you'll travel far.

PISCES
Watch your boundaries and if you don't have any, create them now.  If you don't watch what's going on around you, you're liable to a loss of some kind, Pisces.  Stay awake!  High standards are preventing you from enjoying what you already have.  Shake it off.  A deeper sense of self is emerging and the strength there is amazing.  Lucky breaks are coming.


MAY GOOD FORTUNE SHINE ON YOU ALWAYS!

Greetings from the Dental Office

Here I am friends, with my little gal at the dentist's office.  She's getting some cavities worked on and I'm in the waiting room, writing to you.  Don't you love wifi?

Perhaps it's the back to school thing but now seems the time to get everyone checked out and problems addressed.  Chalk it up to Mercury retrograde in Virgo.  This retrograde shows us what needs fixing in stark relief.

You may have become aware of health challenges during the last week or so of this particular retrograde.  Virgo rules health and whenever we experience strong Virgo transits, we tend to see what's not working and at the same time, discover solutions and new forms of healing.

The superstitious part of me was a little nervous about scheduling this dental appointment during a retrograde but that's just silly.  Life doesn't stop when the planets shift and move.  The work needed to be done and waiting could have complicated the issue.  We can't always schedule our lives around transits and why should we?  We've got to trust ourselves a bit more.

We're always searching for signs and reasons to make sense of things.  Is it possible we lose our own wisdom and knowing when we sink into the search for answers?  This is a theme that comes up a lot in the Stonestreet Cafe.  I'm pretty excited about the next show, speaking of the Cafe.  I'm welcoming my friend and colleague Kristina Walsh to the Cafe to talk about relationships and some energetic patterns we've noticed of late.  Give this lady a call for a reading.  She's truly remarkable.  Tune in tomorrow at 7pm PST/10pm EST.  The show is LIVE, which means you can call in and get a reading or add your thoughts to the discussion.  CALL US!  218.862.1300 x 124290.

Back to my daughter...she's a Virgo, so in some ways it wasn't surprising that her teeth problems became evident during a retrograde in Virgo.  Let me tell you about this gal...she spent the whole summer running wild in our neighborhood.  She was barefoot the whole time and her feet are now tough as leather.  Now that she's back in school, the teachers are having a hard time keeping her shoes on.

She's a wild thing and I can't believe she came here to be with my husband, son and I.  She's teaching me new stuff every day.  I've probably written about the cycle of create/destroy energy before.  Well...I'm proud of my daughter and her crazy "destroy" energy (especially now that she's back in school and not at home destroying everything and anything she can get her hands on).  Though she's not quite four, she's been asking me to teach her how to sew so that she can learn to make her own clothes.  I find myself wishing I had more skill in this area to share with her.  Wouldn't it be amazing if she grew up to be a designer or to work in the design field? That's one of my parallel universe/secret fantasies.  Did she inherit that?  How does that work?

Ok...enough on that delightful subject.

COME TO THE CAFE THURSDAY NIGHT
...and come get a reading soon.  We're having tons of sales this month and I'll be there waiting to work with you via phone, chat or email that is, as soon as I get home from the dentist's office!
