Is There Life after Death? by Hannelore


atching a loved one suffer through illness, and/or losing a loved one through death may be the most difficult and painful experience we will ever endure. One cannot put a time frame on the grieving process. Each of us moves through it at our own pace. With every death, however, there is a gift - one that reinforces that life is eternal. The sun never sets on the soul and when we live in the faith and trust that our spiritual path requires, we are able to open to messages from other dimensions – to realize for certain that life doesn’t end with Sufi aphorism death. We simply shed our human garment and the part of us that is the essence of who we are goes on forever, and it is the love that endures.

– deeply – and we sometimes wonder if we can ever be whole again. I remember how difficult it was for me when my father passed on. He suffered for many years. I spent many nights by his side in the hospital and as we neared his end. His death was tremendously painful for me. I believed I would never again smile let alone laugh. My heart was aching and very heavy. Everything seemed dark and dismal.

“When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the soul laughs for what it has found.” ~

No matter how strong one’s faith may be, losing a loved one hurts one’s heart 4 • FALL/WINTER 2011

While I continued to teach classes, I found it too difficult to offer private sessions. I felt too vulnerable. I didn’t want another individual to see or feel my pain. After a time, and with great resistance, I conceded and began to again accept one-on-one appointments. My first three appointments were individuals grieving the loss of a parent! A coincidence? No. God/Source brings to

us those who will be mirrors for our own pain so that we have a greater opportunity to heal. As I counseled these clients, I discovered that I was in fact counseling myself. It was like I had God/Source by my side whispering in my ear, “Listen to what you are saying Hannelore.” As the pain eased in my client, the pain in my own heart eased. Since my father passed, I have been blessed with many signs. In fact – just as I wrote these very words an eagle swooped down no more than 20 feet away and flew right in front of my window! I have learned to trust these signs. When they make me think of my father, I know that they are gifts from him – and I whisper, “Thank you, Dad.”

Vibrational Food for Vibrational Beings What they didn’t teach you in health class. by Dawn James


used to think food could be classified into only three categories: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. But I was wrong. Another classification is vibrational frequency—a measurement of the electrical energy that is present in all natural living things. Food can help or hinder our health, depending on its vibrational frequency. Food can also assist the body in moving energy effectively and efficiently— provided we eat the right types of foods. Like food, we also have vibrational frequencies. In fact, each organ has its own optimal frequency range that correlates with good health and vibrancy. These frequencies, however, can be positively or adversely affected by a number of factors, including our nutrition and the vibrational frequencies of the foods we consume.

Vibration Frequency of Food All foods in their natural state have vibrational frequency, a measurement of energy related to bioelectricity (and indirectly related to prana, or “vital energy”). The vibrational frequency of foods is typically measured in hertz (one hertz is one cycle per second of energy flow that is constant between two points). The table below illustrates the vibration levels of canned and processed foods and certain unprocessed foods. By consuming foods devoid of vibrational frequency (i.e., processed and GM foods), we are indirectly polluting our body; we are filling ourselves with substances that are not beneficial to our health and wellbeing. I call this unconscious eating. In other words, eating simply to satisfy our hunger, and tantalize our taste buds, but not paying attention to how the foods we are eating will benefit our physical system. Unconscious eating is the primary cause of the toxic state of our assimilative, digestive, and hormonal systems. It is in our

nature to eat wholesome, natural (organic), nutrient-rich, high-vibrational foods to maintain a healthy and vibrant physical system. Furthermore, the vibrational frequency of these foods resonates with our tissues, cells, and organs in a natural, harmonic manner. This resonance stimulates our own frequencies and begins to restore coherence in our bioelectric fields to promote and maintain wellness. Food-Buying Tips If you want to be assured of obtaining food that has a high vibrational frequency, then, as much as possible, buy food that has been grown organically, locally, and in season.

One of my dear friends has the remarkable gift of being able to communicate with departed loved ones on the other side. I mentioned to her that losing my Dad after 60 years of marriagewas ~ Socrates extremely hard on my mother.

the bluebird magnet.” Mom went on to say, “Do you know how many times I have come into the kitchen and the bluebird magnet was on the other side of the fridge door? I would move it back and then notice it had moved again. I just assumed it was when I closed the freezer door that it moved.” She then asked me, “How would he remember that?” I replied, “How did you just remember?” “I was in the bathroom, and suddenly as though it just happened yesterday, I remembered our conversation in the kitchen.”

“Death is but a migration of the soul”

I asked her if she was open to receiving a message from my Dad - something we could tell Mom that only she would know, and that would be proof that he still existed. At that moment she took a deep breath and told me, “He said that you are to tell her to remember the bird.” I looked at her questioningly, “The bird?” She replied, “He is really excited and keeps insisting and repeating, “Tell her to remember the bird!” She asked me if that meant anything to me. “No, I can’t think of anything.” The next day, after having lunch with Mom, I told her about my friend’s gift and Dad’s message. She responded with “The bird?” I asked her if that meant anything to her and she said, “No.” Needless to say I was disappointed.

Dads message to her -”Remember the Bird.” This article is an excerpt taken from Hannelore’s book ‘Ignite Your 6th Sense’ The Power of Your Intuition. Launch date: May 8, 2012.

Are You Letting It In?

by Abraham-Hicks

Abraham is a group of nonphysical teachers, speaking their broader perspective through Esther Hicks.

uestion: I have a personal question about developing the ability to let go of things from the past. I can see that my now is colored by all of these things. And it’s difficult for me not to constantly remind myself that I missed out on this or that. Abraham: Well, that is logical, isn’t it? Because that’s where your vibration is, it’s logical that you would be reminded of things like that. We have a fun way of looking at it: Let’s say you have a piece of very fine sandpaper, and you rub it with your fingers. It is so fine that at first, it feels almost like velvet. So you rub it a little more, and a little more, and a little more... In the beginning, there is no detriment, but the longer you rub it, the more unpleasant it becomes. Your skin is beginning to feel some sensitivity--and after an hour or two, maybe even some beginnings of blisters. Yet sometimes, that sandpaper is really the only thing visible in the room. And even though the experience is not very pleasant, you’ve got this habit going. Then, all of a sudden, you realize “Hey, I

Vibrational Food For Vibrational Beings | Continued from page 5

Why Buy Certified Organic? • Certified organic foods are chemical-free. They are grown without insecticides, herbicides, fumigants, or fungicides. Many of the chemicals used in non-organic farming are known carcinogens. • Organic foods contain up to ten times the mineral content of non-organic produce. Because they have more nutrients, organic foods taste better. • Organic standards prohibit the use of municipal solid waste or sewage sludge as compost ingredients. Why Buy Local? • Local foods have the most nutrients. Most foods shipped long distances and from other countries are often picked before they ripen, thereby bypassing the full development of the food, and premature picking means fewer nutrients. • When you know your local farmers, and how your food is grown or raised, you build a relationship of trust and you can make informed buying decisions that help safeguard your family’s health. • Buying locally helps your local economy by keeping dollars circulating in your community. • You help protect the environment. Because local food does not have to travel far, carbon dioxide emissions are reduced and fewer packing materials are used. • You support family farms and farmland preservation. Why Buy in Season? • Eating in season keeps us in alignment with Mother Nature. • Seasonal food is fresher, tastier, and more nutritious than out-of-season food. • Out-of-season food may be “force grown” in artificial conditions, which may affect the food’s nutritional composition and flavour (compare the taste of a tomato bought in December with one bought in August). • The seeds of seasonal foods germinate in the soil at the right time, so the plants are naturally stronger and more resistant to disease and produce better-quality fruit and vegetables.

Are You Letting It In? | Continued from page 7

We encourage the art of Allowing--the art of letting it in. The tricky thing is that sometimes, even though this sandpaper is not pleasant and can get really unpleasant, the key is in developing a more sensitive awareness. We don’t know many of you who would rub your hand until it is bloody. Yet, that’s the way you tend to handle some not-good-feeling

You rub yourself all over them, until you have so severely disallowed Well-being that negativity begins showing up in your life experience in different ways. We want to get your attention, by saying that no matter how bad that reality was and no matter how justified it may seem to be, none of it needs to have anything to do with your now.

We hope they will inspire you as much as they have inspirited us! - Chandler Armstrong!


on Miguel Ruiz was born into a humble family with ancient traditions in rural Mexico, the youngest of 13 children. He considers himself very lucky, as this was where he learned from early age that everything is possible, if we really want it. His parents, Don Jose and Dona Sarita, as well as his grandfather, Don Leonardo, all believed that Miguel would continue their legacy in the centuries old Toltec tradition.

Instead Don Miguel attended medical school, and became a surgeon.

Wish I Could Give You the Moon by Alan Cohen


Zen story tells of a man who came home one evening and found a thief tossing his possessions into a sack. In Zen fashion, the homeowner decided to just sit outside the door and meditate. At some point the thief saw the man and dashed out of the house. In the commotion the homeowner opened his eyes and saw that the thief had dropped a bowl from his sack. “Wait, you forgot something!” called the homeowner as he picked up the bowl and tried to catch the crook.

But the thief was running fast and soon disappeared into the night. The owner stopped and took a breath. He looked up into the sky and noticed the night was illuminated by a stunning full moon. “I wish I could give you the moon,” he whispered with a sigh.

We all have possessions and we want to keep them. The question is, do you own your possessions or do they own you? If your possessions bring you joy, they are serving their purpose. If you worry about them, you have missed the moon. No one possesses the moon, yet everyone does. It is a gift for everyone to enjoy. If you are worried about your iPhone, car, or house, stop for a moment and look up. No one can take from you what God has given you. The appreciation of simplicity only increases with maturity.

This story makes no sense from a worldly point of view, since most people who discovered a thief would likely be outraged. From a higher vantage point, however, it makes perfect sense.

The Therapeutic Effects of Sound Healing by Shera Farrell

DNA, is the personal name of God, once found in the religious texts that link over half the world’s population. Prohibited and then lost for nearly 2,500 years, The Divine Name is available once again, with the ability to resonate both the physical body and the subtle energy fields of anyone --irrespective of religion, tradition, or belief.

Sound Healing Therapy is used in many forms -- voice, chimes, harps, wind harps, drums, gongs, tuning forks, quartz crystal bowls, and nature sounds such as running water and the power of the ocean. All these sounds have great vibratory effect on our cellular and neurological systems via our chakras, emotions and endorphins. Just as standing behind a gong that is being played resonates throughout the entire body, so listening to a wind harp can take over the entire mind. The symphonies of Hayden and Mozart have helped and cured people who suffer with tinnitus or ringing of the ears. Listening to Mozart helps reduce stress and clear the mind. It has eveb been said that it aids in developing the mind.

A currently-available YouTube shows Zhi Neng Qi Gong healers working with energy and sound to de-manifest a bladder tumor in 90 seconds. Via ultrasound, the tumor can be seen collapsing into cloudy slush. There is no question that sound can alter molecular structure. In the 1960s, medical doctor Hans Jenny conducted experiments revealing that sound actually creates form in various substances such as plastics, liquids and water. He would place these substances on a steel plate and then, using a crystal oscillator, vibrate these plates with sound. The various substances took on organiclooking shapes—they look like microscopic organisms or underwater life. Quite astounding. He called this work Cymatics.

In his groundbreaking work, The Lost Chord, sound-healing pioneer Jonathan Goldman shares his incredible discovery of a universal sound which, when intoned, can bring harmony and healing to ourselves and the planet. This name, encoded within our

Masuru Emoto of Japan demonstrated that water molecules are actually affected by sound and our intention -our thoughts and feelings, the energy behind the sounds we create. Emoto found that clean water looks like a snowflake—very geometric. Polluted

Difference Maker by Suze Casey


hether you want to expand your current reality with more ease and joy, or are healing from physical or emotional challenges – Belief Re-patterning works. I’m thrilled Hay House is bringing this way of being to a wider audience with the March 2012 release of Belief Re-patterning: The Amazing Technique for “Flipping the Switch” to Positive Thoughts.

Twenty years ago, Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life provided a catalyst in the development of the Belief Re-patterning technique. I loved the affirmations, but often when I repeated them I felt like I was lying. The voices in my mind would create an inner tug of war. Some affirmations worked over time, but most of the time it felt like a battle. My inner conversations were harsh and unkind. As a teacher I knew the importance of developing a positive self-concept, however I was living my life and making decisions from a place of believing I was just not quite good enough. Consequently, I was hard on myself, and habitually put myself down. Life was always a struggle: two divorces, two life-threatening cancer diagnoses, and the lifestyle changer of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome all before my 35th birthday. How did I feel? Frustrated and angry and victimized, and ultimately tired of going over my story trying to figure out what happened. Something had to give. Whatever it was, it needed to change. I wanted to get well and be well. Talking things out through a guided conversation with a skilled counselor, teacher, or coach would lift my energy as I got the problem off my chest, but sometimes I could feel myself digging deeper every time I told the story. I realized the Law of Attraction was at work. I was focusing on the problem, and in the attempt to sort out what was wrong, I was actually unconsciously creating more of the problem. I might sort it out in one area of my life, but it would

pop up again somewhere else. I decided I was done with the struggle, and that life just had to be easier. With any story, there are many starting points, and the journey that led me to create the Belief Repatterning technique was more like a series of experiences and the resulting awareness that came

Suze Casey together over time. I began shifting my beliefs through conscious practice, training my subconscious mind to habitually move to the positive. Now my inner conversations are supportive, and I accept myself for who I really am. Since 1999 I have been in fulltime practice assisting others to come to this same inner peace. Thousands have learned to “Flip the Switch” through individual coaching, and the courses created to help them integrate Belief Repatterning into their own lives. I’ve trained and licensed Belief Repatterning Practitioners throughout Western Canada who are also excitedly expanding the impact of Belief Re-patterning. It’s a way of Being.

doctor’s prognosis that he would be restricted to an inactive life of resting at home. He personally embodied the message he shares, by continuing to joyfully live his life, sharing his message through books, lectures and journeys. Though he was enjoying life, he also knew that he was slowly dying and focused on preparing his sons to carry on his legacy. In 2009 Don Miguel’s body began to deteriorate much more rapidly and he applied for a heart transplant. In August 2010 he was put on the transplant waiting list. On October 9th 2010, Don Miguel successfully received a new heart. For Don Miguel this is a new beginning and with deep gratitude and generosity he is eager to share his message with all of human kind. After exploring the human mind from a Toltec as well as scientific perspective, Don Miguel has combined old wisdom with modern insights and created a new message for all mankind, based in truth and common sense. When asked about the meaning of the end of the over 5000 year old Mayan calendar, don Miguel’s answer is simple; it has no meaning and nothing will happen. The new era will be simply an extension of the old - unless, through awareness, we use our intent to make a change. Don Miguel is making a call for humanity to come together, to use this unique moment in time to make a change, to end the old era of fanaticism, lies, and superstition and to begin an era of truth. Don Miguel is highly respected throughout the world. He has received numerous recognitions, including a US Air Force challenge coin engraved with The Four Agreements, and he is referenced to as a National Heirloom of Mexico. The Four Agreements® published in 1997; was a New York Times bestseller for more than 7 years and the 30th bestselling book of the decade. Other books have followed; The Four Agreements Companion Book, The Mastery of Love, The Voice of Knowledge, Prayers, Beyond Fear and The Fifth Agreement, a collaboration with his son Don Jose. All of his books are international bestsellers.

Community News BRACO Live streaming September 24,25, &27, 2011 For more than sixteen years, people from all over Europe have been streaming to Zagreb, Croatia to experience and be healed through the simple act of gazing with a kind and gentle man who goes by the name of Braco (pronounced Braht-zoh, meaning “Little Brother” in Croatian). While Braco doesn’t call himself a healer, hundreds and hundreds of thousands around the world do. The transformations and

“Gazing is a simple and elegant solution allowing Braco to be with us in Alberta, while on tour in the USA.” healings are often medically unexplainable, yet undeniably miraculous. Reams of documentation recount stories of countless souls remarkably and often spontaneously changed by standing before Braco’s silent gaze -- and not just physical healings, but emotional, spiritual, mental, and interpersonal healings, too. The energy emanating through Braco’s gaze is so strong that many are able to experience remarkable transformation simply by being in a photograph that is held during Braco’s Gazing Session

14 • FALL/WINTER 2011

Braco’s comitment to service is already so high, he often works seven days a week, traveling the world tirelessly to bring his gifts for those who gather to see him, but clearly something has to give as more and more beg to be a part of Braco’s gaze. He can’t be everywhere at once -- until now. We are thrilled to be a part of the impetus for not only more people to be with Braco, but to help Braco by bringing the world closer to him. By joining hands with our growing international community we feel live streaming is a simple and elegant solution allowing Braco to really be many places at the same time. He can gaze from Zagreb, LA, even a beach in Bali to you and others wherever you may be. And for those unable to travel for any reason -- those in hospitals, remote areas, or due to weather challenges we feel heartened that they, too, can be a part of Braco’s extraordinary gift now for the first time. We’ve worked tirelessly creating a wonderful platform from which most everyone with the proper equipment can participate.

taking off my makeup, and lounging on my couch in sweats,” she replied. While many of us dream of glamour and some of us actively pursue it, there is an internal reward that runs far deeper than attention or accolades. Your spirit is already bathed in a light brighter than spotlights. Jim Carrey noted, “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” If riches and fame are not the answer, what is? A Course in Miracles tells us that the only gifts worth having are those that increase when you give them. These are the gifts of the spirit, all variations on the theme of love. When you give kindness, compassion, understanding, laughter, or forgiveness, you do not lose anything by giving. To the contrary, both giver and receive gain, and the blessing of the gift expands in your life and the lives of those you touch. You are bringing the eternal to earth and growing it in your experience. When you give a finite gift such as

money or an object, the giver has less and the recipient has more. The Course would say this is not a true gift, since in the process someone lost and someone won. The only true gifts are those in which everyone feels fulfilled. When you give money or an object, the real question is, “What is the spirit in which the gift is given?” If you are giving with a sense of guilt or obligation or you hold the receiver indebted, no gift has changed hands because the spirit of the transaction is void. If, on the other hand, you give with love, generosity, and delight, and you are happy for the recipient, the gift is real and it enhances the lives of both parties. In a culture hell-bent on doing, the experience of being is extremely refreshing, even healing. While many people can do, only a small number can be. Yet there is a part of each of us that knows how to be. Metaphorically, while a part of us is gathering stuff in our sack like the thief in the Zen story, another part recognizes the magic of tonight’s moon.

Whether you experience the stuff in the sack or the moon depends on where you choose to place your attention. At some point the thrill of seeking gives way to the deep satisfaction of finding. We value innocent pleasures more than contrived ones. Then we understand Leonardo DaVinci’s message: “The greatest sophistication is simplicity.” Many of us have read books and gone to seminars to practice manifestation. After a while, you become more interested in demanifestation. Many of us would gladly trade a sack of stuff for the moon. If so, just look up. It’s waiting for you to be full.

Spirit Guides... Who Has Them?


As a Psychic Medium one of the most common questions that I get is: “Do I have Guides around me?” The answer is YES! Everyone has Guides. The number of Guides that one has changes with what is happening in their life. Some Guides are here to help for a certain moment, event or problem; some are here for a whole lifetime, while some may be from previous lifetimes. (And yes, for most of us this is not our first time here, in this School of Life, on Planet Earth!) Then the next question is: “What are they, and how can I talk with them?” What are Guides? To put it into perspective, imagine a family that has children and a nanny to look after them. The parents will tell the nanny what to do, where to go what the children can do, and how to be with the children. For us, we are all children of God, Universe, Spirit and our nannies are our Guides. The main difference between a nanny and a Guide is that we have Free Will, therefore the opportunity to tell our Guides what WE want. And because of this Free Will our Guides can only help if we ask. And the only payment that they want is acknowledgement. The way that most societies acknowledge assistance is with a ‘Thank You’, which also works in the Spirit world. Just remember with Free Will, it is YOUR choice to ask, or not to ask. Talking with your Guides is as easy as talking to a friend, a pet

or even yourself. You can talk with them out loud or internally. The problem that most people have is not in the talking but in hearing the response. Often when one gets a response, the ego gets involved and starts questioning the information being given. Here is an easy way to identify if it is your ego or your Guide answering. If you get two answers where one is loud and the other is soft, know that the loud voice, the one trying to get your attention, is your ego. The quiet calm peaceful voice is from Spirit. How can they help? I always seemed to have a hard time finding a parking stall until I asked my Guides to help me. This was one of the first things that my Guides and I worked on together. This can be a great and fun way for you to start to work together with your Guides. Just ask them! This is only the beginning...

a pure energy field. The body absorbs the energy like a dry sponge absorbs water. The aura therapy patches don’t have side effects. Side effects are associated with synthetic substances, such as pharmaceuticals. We are using normal natural frequencies. When the body needs them, it absorbs them. If the body doesn’t need a frequency, it just circulates in an energetic pattern. Our body attracts and pulls the energy on the left side, so we recommend that the patch is placed on the left shoulder. The body can absorb 100% of energy from the patch. When the patch is placed on the right shoulder the body will absorb 75% of available energy. Compliance is very high as there is no need for pills, bottles, timing, no need to take medication to work, etc. All they need is to place to patch on the left shoulder and leave it there for 3 days. We are using a mild hypoallergenic adhesive on the patch to hold it in place. It will stay for up to 3 days. If the skin is oily it may come off sooner but we don’t want to use too strong adhesive so that not to irritate the skin. You can keep it on while taking the shower or you can reinforce it with a surgical tape or a BandAid for the remaining days. A 10-pack of aura therapy patches is a 30 day supply. All frequencies in all programs are perfectly balanced. These are energetics that are totally accepted by the body. You can do 2-3 programs without overwhelming a patient with energy. The aura patches are very powerful. People may experience the benefits almost immediately. The results are very recognizable. If they use too many programs, they may feel discomfort. When you do the test and assign the therapy use the triage method – start with the two that are most essential and them move down and complete the therapy. The Aura Therapy Patch System is a convenient solution for gaining and maintaining health. It is a total restoration program. We are restoring the wonderful energies that you find in those with abundant health. We’ve met with many wonderful therapists, naturopaths, MD’s. So many people today are interested in pursuing more natural remedies, energetic interventions and we are very pleased with the way our line of aura therapy patches has been used. Some people report 100% effectiveness of therapies.

Astrology ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Have you been examining the relationships in your life? Perhaps getting rid of those that no longer serve you? If you haven’t, this is a good time to do some housecleaning in this area of your life. Don’t let others make inordinate demands on your time or resources, but be sure you’re taking personal responsibility in those areas. If you can break away from people who might otherwise drain you, this is a great time for expressing your true creative energy. Let your light shine. Allow your inner child run to around naked. There’s some outrageous fun to be had if you can break away from responsibility without breaking the bank. TAURUS (April 21-May 20) This is a great time for getting in touch with the true essence of your fabulous self. There’s some enlightenment to be gained and a great potential for inner growth. You’ve been working hard, both at work and in improving your home environment. And in both places you might not have been getting the appreciation you deserve. Bite your tongue. Eventually others will see just how amazing you are and you will reap the rewards of all your efforts.

20 • FALL/WINTER 2011

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) If you can sit still and listen in the upcoming months, you could manifest some amazing ideas and have great insight into yourself, especially on a more spiritual level. Try to remember that not everything that enters your mind needs to be shared with others as you might not get agreement with your way of thinking. But that’s okay, because the insights you have are personal anyway. Speculation at this time is especially risky so kick to the curb any opportunity that seems too good to be true. CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Your personal financial situation and domestic life will be at the forefront of your mind in the next few months. Don’t ignore any work that needs to be done in these areas, but try to balance your personal needs with what you are able to do for the collective. If you’re working for a higher cause, the strength and support that you get from your friends and other like-minded people can be powerful right now – tap into that energy while it’s with you and see what positive change you can make in the world. LEO (July 23 – August 23) You have energy to spare! Keep your foot off the gas pedal and make sure you harness that enthusiasm in a positive way: take up a new sport or start a new project and try not to

lose patience with those of us who might need more rest than you. If you are careful in how you communicate with others and are acting with integrity, your career could experience a huge boost right now. VIRGO (August 24 – September 22) Your interest in study and travel is at it’s height right now. Unfortunately, your financial situation might be holding you back from doing those things your heart is urging you to do. No worries! You can be perfectly content hanging out philosophizing in groovy cafés and inhaling dusty tomes found in used book stores and libraries. Whatever you do, make sure you satisfy this lust for knowledge – the Virgo mind is happiest when occupied. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) There could be changes ahead in your partnerships and domestic situation, so whether it’s because you’re upgrading to a new home or pooling resources, you should benefit from the transaction. If you’re thinking of getting a loan, now’s a good time. You’re at the start of a new cycle, so don’t be in too much of a hurry to do everything at once. The scales of Libra are looking for balance right now; try to balance work with play, outward with inward, and remember to keep everything in perspective.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) If you’re single, you might enter into a meaningful new relationship. If you’re already in a relationship, you might find that it has renewed vigour and intensity. Regardless, partnerships of all kinds are favourable right now, so enjoy. You’re 27 years into a 28 year cycle, so despite the fact that you might feel inclined to start new projects, unless they are short term projects the energy won’t be sustainable over the long haul. This time is best used for looking at what you’ve accomplished, re-evaluating, and planning for a new cycle that will begin next year. SAGITTARIUS (November 33 – December 21) This is an excellent period for you to accomplish a lot at work. You could find you feel more purpose and direction in your chosen field, especially if you’re involved in a service area or charitable organization. You would do well to work in groups, and this could involve some long distance travel. If the opportunity arises, take it – it’s what feeds the Sagittarian soul. This is a favourable time for your health, but be careful not to overindulge.

Capricorn is not known for reckless abandon so were not too worried you’ll get out of control, but in your quest for all the fun you’re about to have, be careful not to spend ALL your hard earned money. The next few months will see you working hard, playing hard, and reaping the rewards of both kinds of energy. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) You might be inspired to purchase a new home, to renovate or to redecorate. your home is your castle right now, and your domestic situation supportive. You can avoid conflict by ensuring that your partner is involved in decisions: surprising your partner with a purple paisley theme in the bedroom might not turn out how you’d hoped. This is a stable time in your life, but don’t worry; stable doesn’t mean boring when there’s an Aquarian in the room.

~ Hermes Trismegistus

PISCES (February 19 – March 20) You might consider self-employment at this time, but make sure that you can be financially self reliant. The resources of others (whether a bank or a partner) might not be available to you. Your communications skills are especially strong right now and the experiences you have in the near future could irrevocably alter your thought patterns, your consciousness, and your perception of the world. This is a time for big picture thinking and dissolving any obstacles you imagined were in your way.


CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19) Your creative potential is huge right now! Get out and express yourself in whatever way makes you smile.
