Key phrase: 
LIBRA (September 24-October 23)   As the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, the autumn season begins.  Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, highlights beauty, harmony, finances, love and the need for balance. Libra is symbolic of the self in alliance with others. We all have Libra somewhere in our chart where these energies play out.  It is said that natives of this sign, see both sides of an issue, strive for justice, and often find it difficult to choose a position because of their ever-present quest for fairness.
This month, the Sun’s alignment with the Super Galactic Center is formed a few days before and after the Libra New Moon on September 27th.  This is the fourth of six SuperMoons this year. A SuperMoon occurs when the Moon is in perigee (at its closest approach to the Earth.) This represents significant shifts in the Earth’s energy field as well as in human consciousness.
The New Moon, at 4 degrees Libra, sets the tone for new beginnings.  This lunation generally associated with peace and harmony, meets an opposition between the unpredictable forces of Uranus in Aries, as it squares the volatile energies of Pluto in Capricorn. These untamed forces require our individual authenticity to make powerful transformations, as we become more aware that we can no longer depend on the old structures for support. We get help pursuing our personal goals, by relying on the creativity and courage of action-oriented Mars in the bold sign of Leo.

Libra by Josephine Wall

Venus, the natural ruler of Libra and co-ruler of Taurus, moves into the emotionally introspective sign of Scorpio from October 8th to November 2nd.  While in Scorpio, the love principle is not easily expressed and sensitivities become heightened.  On October 13th, the mental forces of Mercury exit the sign of Libra and join the magnetic energies of Venus in Scorpio for the next three weeks. Communication becomes reserved, powerful and fiercely acute.
On October 17th, Jupiter trines Pluto until November 7th.  This favorable aspect replicates a similar configuration that occurred last July from the 2nd through 14th. Our confidence is bolstered to make the most of any opportunity during this time.
The Full Moon on October 11th at 18 degrees Aries opposes Saturn in Libra.  The aggressive fire energies of Aries meet opposition from the cautious, restraining energies of Saturn. We are encouraged to eliminate the things that are not working in our lives and focus on strengthening the things that serve a useful purpose. The goal for this month is to embrace change and spontaneity by using quick perceptions and a higher connection.

Reiki: A Powerful, Effective Healing System

by Courtney DeWinter, Reiki Master Teacher Delphine Healing Arts

The Reiki system of energy healing — developed in Japan in the early 1900s — is based on life force energies that have been an integral part of this planet since it was formed. Everything on this planet (people, animals, trees, etc.) give off electro-magnetic, or life force, energy. The body is not just a physical structure; it’s composed of electro- magnetic energies and energy fields, too.

Reiki Master Mikao Usui

The Reiki healing system uses these powerful life force energies for healing purposes. The Reiki practitioner accesses life force energies that are all around us, and pulls that energy into themselves, and then flows it out their hands and into the Reiki recipient. Results of a Reiki treatment vary depending on what the recipient needs on that particular day. Healing comes in many forms, and Reiki can provide physical, emotional, spiritual, or karmic healing, (or a combination thereof).

Reiki is done fully clothed on a massage table. And while the healing results can vary, Reiki recipients universally report feeling heat and pulsing coming from the practitioner’s hands, deep calm, and many see beautiful colors in their mind’s eye while they are receiving a Reiki treatment.

Reiki also has been studied by medical researchers. We now know that Reiki accelerates the healing process, eases pain, eases the nausea associated with chemo- therapy, improves blood chemistry, and much more. How Reiki affects you depends, quite simply, on what you need.

Courtney DeWinter is a Reiki Master Teacher and Master Practitioner with 23 years of experience in the Reiki energy healing system. She is the founder of Denver-based Delphine Healing Arts (, which offers comprehensive & thorough Reiki training classes, and Reiki healing session for people & animals. Courtney was first introduced to Reiki in the warm blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, swimming with a pod of dolphins. A group of Reiki masters lead the trip to Mexico, and the experiences were so profound that Courtney got the call to heal and teach healing, and embarked on learning the Reiki healing system. She has been doing Reiki since 1988, when the Reiki system made its way to Colorado.

Carol Pollard is a clairvoyant reader, spiritual teacher and animal communicator with over 30 years experience in the metaphysical arts. Known as “The Pet Talker”, she speaks to, and for our beloved animal companions.


Clients will often ask me how I communicate with animals. As with my human clients, I use my clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient abilities. I am able to see, hear and know what an animal wants to communicate.
Even as a child, I had a special and unique bond with animals. I understood what they were thinking and feeling. I started to see life through their eyes. I made the decision I would speak for them and tell their stories.
During a reading, I help my clients to connect with their pets and to understand what they need to live healthily, happy lives. Sometimes a pet may ask for a change in diet, exercise or medical care. Should that need arise, I am able to see what foods and exercise are best for the animal and offer referrals for holistic and homeopathic veterinarians.
I also work with pets who have behavioral issues or who have been abused or traumatized. I have successfully helped many of these so-called ‘hopeless’ cases. if appropriate, I can refer my clients to professional trainers who can help change unwanted behavior. With love and understanding, these pets can live happy, wonderful lives.

We are indeed fortunate to have our animal companions. They teach us so much about ourselves and help us grow and expand our consciousness. They hold our love and carry our burdens. Their healing and compassionate nature smoothes our path and brings light to our souls. We are truly blessed to know them!

Author James Wanless Ph.D.Sustain Yourself Cards and HandbookSustain Yourself Cards and Handbook

Self-Sustainability is the New Success – an inspired, evolved way of life. In his new Oracle, Sustain Yourself Cards & Handbook to Live Well and Live Long, renowned author, coach, and futurist James Wanless, Ph.D., explores the power of intuition and creativity to sustain ourselves – to shape lives of meaning and fulfillment in the demanding and ever-changing modern world.
Sustainable life means living well and living long. To do this requires living whole — which means to stay healthy, be happy, grow wise, have sufficient material wealth, be creative, adaptable and resilient, preserve the earth, contribute to community and social harmony — all in a conscious and balanced way. Moreover, personal sustainability — living an enduring quality-of-life — has become uppermost in our lives because of the mushrooming demands and volatile conditions of the 21st century.
Guided by the 101 colorful photomontage cards sorted into five domains – Elemental, Mineral, Plant, Animal, and Human – working with the Oracle provides the opportunity to tap deeply into our intuitive knowing to “re” ourselves and our lives – Re-charge, Re-store, Re- start, Re-new.

The Spiral Card

The Lake Card

“Apotheosis is what we’re talking about here”, said Wanless, expanding on the ideas in the Handbook. “Sustainability is attained by the spiritual understanding of life as the process of apotheosis — hearing the call of divine mission, our ‘raison d’etre’, and responding with all our being to achieve our highest spiritual destiny.”
“The cards are a modern Oracle for hearing that call and responding fully from our intuitive wisdom and our best self. Only when we are authentic can we embody and manifest our unique genius and fullest self-expression. By extolling the value of our own individuality, individuation, self-realization and self-actualization, we give ourselves the best chance for optimum living by authoring our lives our own way.”
Tarot Media Company President Anastasia Haysler concurred. “We are living in a time of more and faster transition than at any point in human history. The external chaos and uncertainty affect us internally – emotionally and psychologically – which affect our ability to focus and create ourselves, our lives, and our communities. The Sustain Yourself Cards and Handbook provide a useful map to help us get our feet back under ourselves so we can walk our life paths with awareness and confidence, living authentic lives and creating a sustainable world, internally and externally.”
The set comes complete with 101 colorful and rich photomontage Nature Cards, and the Handbook for applying universal eco-principles to live Whole – how to be Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. The book contains Interpretations of the individual cards, as well as readings and strategies for playing the “game of life” to cultivate your Sustain-Abilities.

James Wanless, Ph.D is the creator of Voyager Tarot: Intuition Cards for the 21st Century. His books include Way of the Great Oracle, Strategic Intuition for the 21st Century, Intuition@Work, New Age Tarot, and Wheel of Tarot: a New Revolution. His columns appear in alternative newspapers nationwide.

THE SOURCE FIELD INVESTIGATIONS: The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations Behind the 2012 Prophecies

by David Wilcock          $29.95

The Source Field Investigations

A stunning synthesis of hidden science and lost prophecies, The Source Field Investigations exposes many great secrets:

  • DNA transformation
  • Consciousness science
  • Wormholes
  • Stargate travel
  • Sacred geometry
  • Ancient conspiracies
  • Multidimensional time
  • The Maya calendar
  • A stunning new model of galactic energy fields triggering mental, biological, and spiritual evolution.

Based on a hugely popular Internet documentary, this exploration of historic signs and symbolism determines what the future holds for humanity come 2012. “If you believe there is no special significance to the year 2012, then prepare yourself for a guided tour through the most incredible scientific mysteries in the modern world, which may be the rediscovery of an ancient system of physics and spirituality that was once widely used and understood, but has since crumbled almost completely into ruin.” -The Source Field Investigations

In his ten-part online documentary series, The Source Field Investigations–viewed more than 500,000 times on YouTube-David Wilcock exposed many great secrets: DNA, consciousness science, wormholes, stargate travel, sacred geometry, three-dimensional time, the Mayan calendar, and much more. And in this book, his seminal work, he’ll expose even more. Calling upon fascinating areas of alternative science, Wilcock’s unique philosophy connects the human species and the rest of the cosmos, proposing that it is in our power to usher in the Golden Age prophesied in so many ancient cultures and spiritual traditions. Unlike the doom- and-gloom viewpoints depicted in big-budget disaster films, Wilcock believes that 2012 may be a watermark for when a widespread acceptance of a greater reality will begin to occur-and in his book, he lays out many of the blueprints for such a Golden Age.
