& Your Zodiac Oracle    June 22, 2007
with Joseph-Mark Cohen
Prelude: Summer Solstice is the portal for planetary indiginous ceremonial & music festivals in the tribal Kootenays. This year we have been gifted with a powerful evolutionary upgrade as our Sun becomes a lens for the galactic alignment frequencies in the 5 years leading up to 2012. The past 5000 years of historical time are about to be recapitulated and karmically resolved in the window between Aug.17
2007 & Aug.17. 2012. To celebrate this occasion, you are invited to a sacred site festival at the Crystal Dome Retreat, Aug.17-19 this summer. (full invite posted at www.treeoflifeschool.com). And for those of you who are explorers of the Earthgrid, have a look at what the CircleMakers are creating this year in Britain  (www. temporarytemples.co.uk). You are welcome to join in on an upcoming Earth Mysteries tour to Glastonbury  (July 20-Aug. 2) for the Crop Circle/ Glastonbury Symposium.
We will report back on this year's temporary temples in the September Kootenay Carnival.
 
 
Portals: July gets off to a slow start with Mercury retrograde up until July 11th. This is like an internet traffic jam where all the traffic lights are blinking and you have to use a deeper intuitive knowing to decipher when to stop, when to go & when to be happy just to gather the chi. Mars is meandering though Taurus all month long. This adds spice to the sensual side of life. However on July 10th there is an awkward aspect to Jupiter (a quincunx) that looks like some kind of fiscal snafu. Venus enters Virgo on July 15th but turns retrograde on the 28th. This is a wonderful traveling window. July 17th is the extraordinary portal of the month, a time to "Fire the Grid" and  become one with the "New Earth" frequencies. So find yourself an ancient tree, a standing stone or a waterfall and commune with the fairies & the gnomes. ...

Zodiacal Oracles for July

Aries: Whether you realize it or not, you have been engaging in an important vision quest for some weeks now. This has stirred up your subconscious mind and re-arranged your priorities as well as your raison d'etre.  Your centre of gravity has shifted & your accustomed defence mechanisms are in hibernation. Welcome to the new you.... 
 
Taurus: Ah, the bull in you is ready for a bull fight. And I can tip you off as to who the matador is this time round. Yes, you guessed it: your local Scorpio. This means that you will need to rely on your vocal chords, your sense of balance, your sense of touch & your knack at roasting a reluctant opponent at the firepit. Just remember: a lover's quarrel makes good kindling for a warrior's feast!
 
Gemini: Your gifts with what the Irish call blarney are tuned to a high pitch this month. You could sell umbrellas in Aswan or tomatoes in Italy. You could build your own sailboat or choreograph a strawbale structure on your land. You could convince your local Starbucks to buy your fair trade organic coffee or add kombucha to their menu. You might start a summer affair with Lady Luck...

Cancer:  Music is a balm for the soul. And goddess knows you soul is scarred & wounded from childhood up until last night's dinner party. My tai chi/ feng shui, prosperity consciousness coach once whispered in my ear a suggestion that the secret to consistent cheerfulness is to take nothing that happens here personally. I pass this advice on to you for the month of July....  

Leo:  Here is my suggestion as to how you might celebrate on the 17th July. First, get out your photo album of all the special places on earth you have  experienced mystical or magical moments. Choose 16 of them. Arrange these into 4 medicine wheels. Then put your favourite action photo of yourself in the centre of the wheel and meditate on where to be on July 17th to hear the song of the Earth Spirit...

Virgo:  The trick this month is for you to find a hidden pathway that leads you out of the labyrinth-- the Hall of Mirrors you call your mind-- allowing you entrance into the Hall of Surrender that some call your heart of hearts. This will shift your yoga from karma to bhakti, your love life from celebacy to tantric, your financial life from pennysaver to what the I Ching calls "great good fortune". You would be astonished with this Shift!..   

Libra:  Your oracle this month is open-ended. You are the one you have been waiting for. You are the Secret designer of your destiny. You are one with the Beloved, one with the dragonfly on the stream, one with the bubbles as they fall over Niagara or Iguassu. Your challenge this month is to maintain your loving connection with all your relations while keeping up with your credit cards...

Scorpio: Good news or bad news, which would you choose? Ok, for appetizers, you need to know that you have a few enemies out there who are out to get your goat.
The reason for this has to do with some financial short-sightedness on your part or what you might prefer to call an oversight. The good news is that if you can swallow some pride & stubbornness, your enemies could become your best allies....

Sagittarius: Just when you thought that everything in your universe was in divine order--- whamo-- you got a free pass to the press box where that which you  deeply cherish begins to vanish like a mirage. So now it is time to ponder exactly how that mirage came into being, how it is kept alive, and where the true oasis might be. I give you a compass, a dowsing pendulum & a GPS instrument to aid you...

Capricorn:  I trust that for the last 4 weeks you have refrained from "sweating the small stuff". So now you are ready to sweat some of the not-so-small stuff. You are ready to face the carnivorous ones that would eat you alive. Your secret weapon: a new form of martial art that you have invented for the occasion. Just remember, when thrown into the lion's den, it is best to befriend the Lion. 
 
Aquarius:  How you do what you do without leaving a frequency footprint is a mystery to even the guides who carry laser flashlights. I gather you have discovered a cloaking device that keeps your family & tribe from noticing what you are really up to. This is a blessing as you are up to something big. Keep clear of all electrical devices, cell phones & hydro wires. You can be invisible, if need be...
 
Pisces:  Your Zodiac Oracle has been coaching you to swallow your karma & follow your bliss. This has led you to question the meaning of your life & ask where exactly you might be going. The magnetic field of transformative love & ecstatic creativity has surrounded you completely. One little mustard seed grain of self-doubt has kept you from your heart's desire. Let go of the longing!
