Ready For More Fun

Since there are SO MANY astrological house systems, I don't know which one really is most solid and applicable. Thus, I usually don't pay THAT much attention to planets transiting through my houses or the houses of others until AFTER we've experienced the transit.

However, sometimes I can FEEL and experience a planet's entry into a house before I check out my chart, and this was the case when Venus entered my Fifth House of children, love, and creativity!

You see--I've been on a long-overdue get-things-accomplished-already! tangent, and I've been steadily applying myself to projects and making good headway.

I'm not even close to being finished with multiple projects....but ya see, Venus wants to play. And Venus is a very powerful energy for me, and so I'm going to play, LOVE a lot, and forget about the unfinished work.

I'm positive the projects will wait for me. If not, well then...

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Answers To Prayers

My contribution to this edition of Blog Your Blessings Sunday is the blessings of prayers. I've read that prayers said by others on your behalf are much more powerful than the prayers you pray for yourself. And one of the reasons this may be true is because there isn't any subconscious self-sabotage happening when you pray for others.

I've been blessed BOTH ways: having the opportunity to pray for others and for having others pray for me.

When you pray for yourself, there may well be blockages set up because of feelings of guilt, unworthiness, lack of self-love, etc.

One of the most famous intercessors is Madonna, also known as the Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary and her intercessory prayer:

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee,
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Many years after the death of Tsarina Alexandra of Russia (and her family), she was sainted, and now many pray for her assistance as well. Here is an icon made to focus on when you request her help with prayers, and here is the link if you would like to read more.

Happy Full Moon

I love Full Moon nights, but I prefer to stay home when people are driving crazy or acting weird. Last night as I was falling off to sleep, I could hear a guy in the neighborhood fighting with his girlfriend on his cell phone. His voice would rise and fall as the conversation continued, and I thought to myself, "Where are my earplugs when I really need them?"

Here's a treat I will share with you on this Fabulous Full Moon:

For a limited time (June 27th is the deadline), you can add your name to this website, and they will take your name to the Moon! How cool is that?!

This is what the site says:
"Sign up to send your name to the moon. Names will be collected and placed onboard the LRO spacecraft for its historic mission bringing NASA back to the moon. You will also receive a certificate showcasing your support of the mission.

The deadline is June 27, 2008 for the submission of names.

"LRO's objectives are to find safe landing sites, locate potential resources, characterize the radiation environment, and demonstrate new technology."

Click here to add your name.

Last night I would have liked to have been on the REAL spaceship to the Moon so I wouldn't have had to hear the long lovers quarrel. This Full Moon has lots of challenging aspects, so drive safe everyone and chill at home.

When Mars Meets Venus

Yesterday transiting Mars in Leo met my Venus for a brief get-together.

This is what Astrodienst had to say about this aspect:

"This influence is most likely to arouse your interest in being with a partner, because it most strongly affects the sex drive. You may want to make love with someone even though you do not care for him emotionally. And if there is no outlet for this energy, it may cause arguments and discord between you and your lover. The effects of this influence are not limited to physical love, however. In a larger sense it arouses all creative energies. This is a good time to be involved in any creative work that requires you to be physically active. Abstract or intellectual creation, such as writing poetry or music, especially some of the current popular forms, would be excellent, as would vigorous work in sculpture or another art form that demands physical energy, such as dance."

Unfortunately, my partner was working hard and working late, and since I knew this was going to be the case, I channeled this sexy twosome into creativity and worked/created late into the night by myself.

This was the Is-ness of yesterday. I got a lot accomplished and enjoyed myself without a partner.

A Martian Energy Surge

Photo: Charles Pfeil

I've been trying to comprehend if there is anything specific in my current astrology chart which would explain why I've become so very busy, energized, and driven to accomplish so much as in the last several months.

Waking up I can't wait to begin projects and complete projects, and there are so many creative ideas buzzing around inside my head. My energetic prowess and output has been amazing to my family. For example, they marvel at how I've managed to move a heavy object all by myself.

My days fly by! The only downside is I've not been blogging as much as I once did, and I miss this hobby.

Perhaps it's transiting Uranus in my first house?

Or maybe it's my new Mars cycle which began about the same time as this energy surge.

Or an upgrade of some kind in my frequency?

Whatever it is, I'm very grateful.

Is this happening to others too I wonder. Give me some feedback.

Now I have to get to work on my projects...wheeee!

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

On today's BYB Sunday I'd like to post about the blessings of books in my life. Books have always been important to me since I was young. I've always had a hunger for knowledge, and books sated this ravenous hunger.

I've amassed a large library of books through the years (oh yes, and me are good buddies!), and every year I weed through them and pass many along to others. Since I've been letting go of SO many things lately (as I've written in other posts on other blogs), I've also been winnowing my library once again.

However, I prefer to hold onto CERTAIN books which continue to inspire me. One such book is "Something More...Excavating Your Authentic Self" by Sarah Nan Breathnach. This morning I opened to page 107 which is a chapter on Authentic Success, and I'll share with you two quotes from this chapter which really speak to me, inspire and bless me. May these quotes offer a blessing to you as well.

"The real moment of success is not the moment apparent to the crowd." George Bernard Shaw

"I believe talent is like electricity. We don't understand electricity. We use it. You can plug into it and light up a lamp, keep a heart pump going, light a cathedral, or you can electrocute a person with it. Electricity will do all that. It makes no judgment. I think talent is like that." Maya Angelou
