SIMPLICITY IS SO SIMPLE

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, When Will You Be Complete?

This morning my musical DLG (Download from God) was "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. I just Love that band! Since 9th grade I have enjoyed every song that band has ever put out but this tune has to be right up in there in my top five Lynyrd Skynyrd songs. But wait, I say every musical DLG is one of my favorite songs? I can't help it, I'm a music buff. (winky wink)

I enjoy this song because it always reminds me to keep it simple. In fact, I sing this song when I need to stop over-thinking things, which is why it happens to be one of my musical totems. Whether it's dealing with relationships, handling money, talking with family, writing this website, packing a suitcase . . . whatever it may be, I seek to just keep it simple and things always seem to run much smoother. Why complicate anything by making it harder than it has to be?

What's up with the struggle?
Why do people dig on that stuff?
Dr. Loretta Standley~

Just last week I was out way too late with Christine, Julie and Anna and ended up drinking too much wine. The next morning I wondered, "Why didn't I just keep it simple?" So I did what any Good friend would do, I e-mailed all three of them and shifted the blame to them for my rip-roarin' headache. (winky wink) I mean, why take personal responsibility when I can blame someone else. (Insert obvious sarcasm here!) Isn't that what they call, "teamwork?"

Folks, it doesn't matter what personal struggles you have going on this very minute. I can tell you that taking personal responsibility and keeping it simple is a certain fix. Point A to Point B is pretty dang simple and quick too. Now take the fact that Mercury is Retrograde, which is a time to clear the past, re-organize and get your act together. Once the past is cleared, you will be in a much better place had Mercury not gone retrograde. In fact, if we all seek to repair our own stuff, then we can move forward that much easier as a more enlightened individual. And as the song says, "And don't forget son, there is Someone, up above."

SIMPLE MAN
by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day
Ah yeah

Oh Take your time, don't live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass
Go find a woman and you'll find Love,
And don't forget son,
There is Someone up above

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you Love and understand
Be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Forget your lust for the rich mans gold
All that you need is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you Love and understand
Be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow you heart and nothing else
And you can do this, oh babe, if you try
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you Love and understand
Be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

WHEN WILL YOU BE COMPLETE?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Take The Time To Teach and Be Taught

This morning my musical DLG (Download from God) came from two different movies and is called, "Wise Up" by Aimee Mann. I first heard this song in the movie, "Magnolia" which is probably on my list of all time favorite movies. This is not "Steel Magnolia's" but the movie, "Magnolia" which weaves nine separate but interconnected everyday lives together. The other movie this song shows up in is "Jerry McGuire". Interestingly enough, Tom Cruise is in both of these movies and was nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Magnolia". The chorus to this song is simple and moving, which you can apply to just about anything in your Life where you know you need to 'wise up'. As the song played out in my head I was reminded of a conversation between myself and two male friends.

The first man was a colleague of mine who was having a hard time letting go of his former girlfriend. She was no longer interested in him and everywhere he went around town, there she was. He would see her at the grocery store, restaurants, the gym, stoplights, the school parking lot. You name it, he saw her. Then my friend asked me how often I run into my former boyfriend. We were together 12 years and had broken up six months earlier. I said, "I never see him." Well he couldn't believe this because we lived within a couple of miles of each other just as he and this woman lived a couple of miles from each other. We shopped at the same grocery store, worked out at the same gym and took the same route to work and yet I never saw him. Then he said, "Well why do you think I run into her but you don't run into him." I replied, "Because I'm complete. It's not necessary."

The second man lived in another state and was the best friend of the man I had been involved with for 12 years. The second man and I remained friends and as we chatted on the phone one day he said, "So, do you ever see _________." I said, "Who?" He said the name again. I said, "Who? I don't know who you're talking about." Then he chuckled sarcastically and said, "Oh come on, Loretta!" After a couple of volleys back and forth trying to connect who he was talking about it finally hit me. I said, "Oh, oh, oh, no, no, I never see him." After it registered with him that I honestly didn't recognize who he was referring to, he questioned me on how come I couldn't connect the name. Further, he wondered how could I never run into my former boyfriend when we lived so close to each other. I simply said, "Because I'm complete. It's not necessary."

By now you know it's not
Going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

I told my colleague that the reason why he keeps seeing his former girlfriend is because he isn't complete with her. He keeps drawing himself to her, not her to him. He wanted to flatter himself and try to convince me it was the other way around but I wouldn't bite. I challenged him to admit that for him to see her that often he has to be deliberately placing himself in her path. He had already broken the Law of Averages so it was obvious this was his doing and not some Cosmic Divine Intervention. I recognize man's work and God's work when I see it. I wanted to just shake him and tell him to wisen up. He was obviously in denial that the relationship was over and he just wasn't ready to let go. She may have been complete with him and may never have even seen him when he appeared but he was not complete with her. This gives the phrase, "You complete me" a whole new meaning.

This Daily Message isn't necessarily about relationships unless of course that is the message that you need to receive from it. This musical DLG (Download from God) may apply to relationships, over-indulgence in food or alcohol. It may be about sex, drugs, abusing someone verbally, mentally, physically or sexually. It might be about spending money and crawling further into debt. It may be about anger, ego, lack of forgiveness, cruelty or jealousy. This message is about letting go; giving up on whatever it is that causes you pain because the pain will not stop and you will not be complete until you give it up and wisen up.

WISE UP
by Aimee Mann
Video from the movie, "Magnolia"

It's not what you thought
When you first began it
You got what you want
Now you can hardly stand it though
By now you know it's not
Going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

You're sure there's a cure
And you have finally found it
You think one drink
will shrink you 'til
you're underground and living down
But it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

Prepare a list of what you need
Before you sign away the deed
'Cause it's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up

No it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up
Now it's not going to stop
So just give up

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

TAKE THE TIME TO TEACH
AND TO BE TAUGHT

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, How Tune In Are You?

This Daily Message reminds me of a Daily Message I wrote back in June called, "Quality vs. Quantity". Today I woke up hearing a fantabulous tune by Crosby, Still and Nash called, "Teach Your Children". David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash in my opinion have to be the best intricate harmonic group EVER! This particular musical DLG (Download from God) always reminds me of simple beautiful teaching moments with my daughter Karmen (Leo, 27) and my grandson Big Tree (Taurus, 5) over the years. These moments came flying through my head as I laid there listening to this song play out. It also reminds me of the teaching moments between God and myself over the years. (winky wink)

My grandson Big Tree and I spend a lot of time together and I mean a lot! No matter what experience we are living that moment, it's an opportunity to teach him something. One thing that I teach him to do is lead with confidence and I do this mostly in a crowded place just as I taught my daughter Karmen. Big Tree knows that he is NEVER allowed to walk behind me, nor beside me in a crowded place because it is too easy to get disconnected from one another. Big Tree walks in front of me and leads. He leads, I follow and give him guidance. Big Tree knows and he trusts that I am right behind him at all times and I would never leave him. He has been trained to listen to my voice as I continually call out to him, "I see you . . I'm right behind you . . I'm here . . I still see you . . go to right . . go to your left . . I Love you . . you're doing great." This is the same way I've learned to listen to God. I just tune in, listen and follow his guidance.

I also teach Big Tree how to navigate while I'm driving, just as I taught his mama. (Big Tree calls Karmen "mama".) Whatever direction he tells me to turn, then I turn. If it's the wrong direction then it is up to him to get me out of it, even if we have to pull over and get our act together. It's okay and we have fun with it. This also means he has to pay attention to where we are going. He enjoys the navigation game, it gives him some confidence, power, leadership and awareness that he might not have otherwise received so early in life. His mama learned confidence in navigating the same way. She learned how to make snap decisions when she would see traffic up ahead then she would quickly direct me to exit off the highway to take another route. She was doing this at five years old, just as Big Tree is now doing.

As most of you are well aware, I'm an outdoors gal. I absolutely Love to camp, fish, sometimes hunt, hike, float, bird watch and anything else that has to do with the great outdoors. I like to think of myself as a naturalist and survivalist. This past summer Big Tree and I camped (just the two of us) several times. Big Tree has learned to respect fire because his daddy, mama and myself teach it to him. Big Tree may only be five years old but he has been taught to respect fire just as he has been taught to respect water. On all our camp outings, Big Tree is the 'firestarter'. He stacks the wood and he is the one who builds and maintains the fire. He is also responsible for putting the fire out before we go to bed. Too much responsibility for a five year old you might think? I think it's completely fair to teach a child to respect all of nature's elements - water, fire, earth and air. Big Tree has been learning to respect fire for the same length of time he has been learning to respect water (swim), which is over two years now. It's all about respecting the four elements. I think it would be wrong not to teach children to respect the elements.

Whether you consider yourself a child of your parents or a child of God, you must have a code that you can live by. This code will not only hold you accountable for your own actions and reactions but will also help teach your child or the children around you to be accountable for their actions and reactions as well. I think we all have a gift for teaching in some capacity if we would just slow down long enough and be patient with those who are seeking or need the information. Notice in the song there is one paragraph that begins with, "Teach your children well" and another paragraph that begins with, "Teach your parents well." Folks, we are all on a path of learning. Take the time to teach and most importantly, take the time to be taught.

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
by Graham Nash

You, who are on the road
Must have a code
That you can live by
And so, become yourself
Because the past
Is just a goodbye

Teach your children well
Their father's hell
Did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks
The one you'll know by
Don't you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would die
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

And you (Can you hear and)
Of tender years (Do you care and)
Can't know the fears (Can you see we)
That your elders grew by (Must be free to)
And so please help (Teach your children)
Them with your youth (You believe and)
They seek the truth (Make a world that)
Before they can die (We can live in)

Teach your parents well
Their children’s hell
Will slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks
The one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

HOW TUNED IN ARE YOU?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Transformational Shifts

Rarely do I wake up to a DLG (Download from God) that is a commercial. Being clair-audient and clair-sentient, my DLGs come by way of auditory and feeling means. I hear and I feel instead of seeing visions (clair-voyant) and rarely do I dream. So this morning I wake up to an auditory DLG that is a hilarious commercial from Tide called, "Silence the Stain". I was immediately reminded how it is my job to tune in to what is being said and block everything else out. I thought about how easy it is to be in church and tune into someone around me then all of the sudden the message I came to listen to is blocked out. Then I become aggravated at the person who I think took me off my game instead of taking responsibility for getting tripped up.

After a late lunch today with Julie (Libra), we decided to pool our energy and get some work done. We sit across from each other at her dining room table, she works on her computer and I work on mine talking to you. So there I was telling Julie about my auditory DLG this morning and how it reminded me of church. As I started typing out the first paragraph above, I heard a horn honk outside. I jumped up out of my seat, tripped over the chair, tripped over the cord from my computer, my earplugs popped out of my ears that were attached to the computer and then I fell into the wall. I was just fighting to get to the window to see who was there. Julie and I fell out laughing as I failed to do exactly what I was writing about, which was silencing the stain around me and tuning in to what was being said. It was hilarious. I never did see who was out there because we were laughing so hard. It's so easy to be taken off our game by the sights and sounds around us.

Now watch the commercial below and see if you can silence the stain and hear what the guy is actually saying. It may take some practice.

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

TRANSFORMATIONAL SHIFTS

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Updation

Holy Mackeral Batman! I have typed so much the past few days that my hands are in the shape of claws. Before I get back to writing your normal Daily Messages again I want to do a little review on what's going on here and around the world.

First, I have updated your your 'Animal Medicine Instinct Through the Signs' on my other website www.NativeAmericanAnimalMedicine.com. From here on out, your 'Animal Medicine Instinct' will be updated every single week on Monday.

Back in August in your Daily Horoscopes I wrote about the effects of Pluto and its transformative powers. Pluto transforms through destruction and then reconstruction. That my little chickadees is how we human beings force ourselves to transform. That's just how we are. We usually wait until we have to change and then react like a deer in the headlights after we have over-spent, over-drank, over-ate or over-done something and then point the finger at someone else. This cannot last and it will not last. I wrote that there would be natural disasters and changes that would affect all of us. All of the astrologers have been writing about this. It's not new news. Do not be so surprised when you see so many things collapsing and being destroyed either by Nature or by us. It's astrology in the works.

The Good News is things will get better but the old has to be destroyed. And I mean destroyed and then completely reconstructed in order for transformation to take shape. Pluto is on the cusp of moving into Capricorn (the 10th house of government) and the shake up is here. We can already see this happening with the government bail outs, the election, authority figures, ranks in society and status in society. Oh it's happening but its for our own Good. Now you can either blame someone for your way of Life or take responsibility for what you did to yourself. This 10th house (Capricorn) is the house of responsibility and we will all have to take responsibility sooner or later. I also asked you back in August to take personal responsibility and lay your groundwork. Clean up your mess. Believe me, you have nothing to fear if you are being honest with yourself and cleaning up your mess. Ego's will not work with this transformational shift. Those who check their ego and stop living the lie will transform quickly, easily, effortlessly and miraculously. If that is money, relationships, career, family or health for you, then okay. Check that lie and make your Truth known to yourself so you can get on with living a wonderful Life.

Mercury has gone retrograde until October 15, 2008. This is a perfect time for you to clean up your mess before you move forward. Read more about this in your Monthly Horoscope. I finally have this website to the place that it needs to be in order for me to run through the past during Mercury Retrograde and finish some writing that I started long ago on this website and my other websites. Please note the NEW buttons over in the left navy blue column. Most recently I added the NEW Myth vs. Truthbutton. For your FYI here is a list of the buttons that will be updated on a daily basis. In order for me to live out my North Node Virgo, I absolutely have to have a daily regimen that will keep me structured and on task. So the more 'daily' anything I do, the better it will be for me (my North Node Virgo) and of course for you. I absolutely have to give myself structure and I do that by doing daily regimented things. Virgo equals daily regimen. The less I have, then it plays into my Gemini nature and I end up getting bored and then I run off to play. Gemini needs to juggle a lot of balls to keep their attention. In other words, if I'm juggling 12 projects instead of 3 projects, then you'll see me get more accomplished. Yee-haw!

1) The Daily Message (this page) updates daily 'except' the weekend. All Daily Messages that appear on this page are archived under the Daily Messages button in the left navy blue column.

2) The Spiritual Progression Path updates daily 'including' the weekend. All daily SPP's are archived under the Spiritual Progression Path button in the left navy blue column.

3) The NEW! Myth vs. Truth updates daily 'including' the weekend. All daily Myth vs. Truth postings are archived under the Myth vs. Truth button in the left navy blue column. Do you see how I started this one day before Mercury went retrograde? (winky wink)

4) Daily Horoscopes update daily 'including' the weekend . . . as usual.

Before Mercury went retrograde today, I have answered all the e-mail and all the phone calls. As of last night I was answering e-mails from August 28th. Folks, I cannot tell you how much quicker your questions will be answered through a phone call than an e-mail. Please make yourself aware of the information I have posted under the Contact button on this site, especially when it comes to health questions. I absolutely will not answer a health question through e-mail because it's a volleying of too many e-mails. Just pick up the phone and call. If your call was lost in the shuffle, then call me back. I will ALWAYS answer my own phone.

I have updated my MySpace page at www.myspace.com/mentator and also the www.NativeAmericanAnimalMedicine.com website, so it is rockin' and rollin' again. I'm going to add more animals on the Animal Medicine site and then I'll head over to the Radio Show site at www.DrStandleyLive.com because I lost a ton of shows during the last Mercury Retrograde back in June. That was weird to say the least. I'm going to be working like a banchee . . . now I'm off to the races. If you could do me one gargantuan favor . . please hit the "Send a Friend" button on this site and send this website to others. Let's scratch each other's back.

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

UPDATION

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, It Is What It Is

Good early early bird morning folks! I'm still ram-jammin' and getting everything back to early bird status, meaning that you receive your Daily Horoscopes a day early. I have updated your daily, weekly and monthly horoscopes. Now I'm set up nicely to have a regular Daily Messages again.

Remember that Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow from September 24 until October 15, 2008. Retrograde motion pulls back and gives you an opportunity to take care of your past (old business). The past that needs to be resolved is directly related to the planet involved. Mercury retrograde has to do with communciation, YOUR COMMUNICATION. When Mercury leaves its shadow on October 31, 2008 this means after the planet leaves its retrograde (backward) motion and goes direct (forward) again making its way back to the degree that it was before it went retrograde. In other words, it's when the planet is back to its old self. Now you can start again (a do-over so to speak) and prayerfully you learned something during the retrograde experience or took care of the past while the planet was retrograde and now you get to move forward under better circumstances than you would have had the planet not gone retrograde. Retrograde motion isn't a bad thing folks, it's actually meant to serve your higher purpose. Everything is always for your higher purpose.

and practice being you."

IT IS WHAT IT IS

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, The Moon in Aries

This morning I woke up hearing my favorite song from a high school band concert. I get so much enjoyment out of this particular song because it was a time when my sister Ahinawake, my brother Sam and myself were all in high school band together. Ahinawake played the alto and tenor saxophone, Sam played the trombone and I played the drums. When I woke up hearing "25 or 6 to 4" by Chicago as my musical (Download from God) it brought back a wonderful band memory of the three of us playing this song at the concert. In the middle of the song Ahinawake had a saxophone solo where the guitar solo normally is. DANG she was good and the crowd went bizerk watching her crank out the notes. I remember being so proud of her that day as were my parents. As I continued playing the drums I could see my brother Sam smiling at her as he vertically rested his trombone next to his knee tapping his foot with the beat. After her solo the rest of the brass and woodwind instruments joined in and the crowd was on their feet. It was powerful. Interestingly enough, not a day later there were complaints at school by some goofed-up parents about this particular song selection and the hidden messages it contained.

Over the years there have been countless wonderments over what this song actually means. Naturally when a song seems a bit mysterious and doesn't seem to make any sense then it's argued to be drug-related or that it might carry some hidden satanic message. Oh phooey! This couldn't be further from the truth. Actually, Robert Lamm, wrote this song when he had writer's block. He's quoted as saying, "It's just a reference to the time of day. The song is about writing a song. There's nothing mystical about it." Folks, this song is a no-brainer (literally) and a classic example of how we make something out of nothing. It is what it is. Lamm was in a space where he couldn't think, so he writes about it and it becomes a huge hit. It's like the show Seinfeld, which was a show about nothing and it became a huge success.

Geez, what if we stopped making things harder than they have to be? What if we stopped twisting, manipulating, distorting and altering things to look ugly when they couldn't be more beautiful, just like the concert that night.

25 OR 6 TO 4
by Chicago

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Flashing lights against the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
Twenty-five or six to four

Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wond'ring how much I can take
Should I try to do some more
Twenty-five or six to four

(solo)

Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
Twenty-five or six to four
Twenty-five or six to four

MOON IN ARIES

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, The Best Years

If you have been coming to this website long enough then you know that during a Moon in Aries you should be doing something NEW! In fact, I give you the head's up on this by posting the Moon in Aries in the monster size gray box at the top of each Daily Horoscope page. You would also know ahead of time if you download the Void of Course Moon Calendar and carry it with you. There is nothing more important during an Aries Moon than you channeling any aggressive energy into something creative since Aries (and Scorpio) are THE MOST creative signs of the zodiac.

If you notice on this website I have added eight (count them), eight NEW buttons in the left navy blue column for your friendly navigating pleasure. With over 3000 pages on this website I understand that getting around a large site like this is similar to wandering around a huge strange city without a map. I am in the process of creating a site map, this very minute, so that you can get a strong visual of all the pages on this website in one big eyeball fix. (winky wink) It's a Moon in Aries and time for new things including this website. Rah-hooo!

One tiny gentle reminder, if you are a TYS e-Course student you and I should have had a phone conversation before you began writing in one single page of your workbook. As I state on the order form page, it is up to you to call me so that we can have this conversation. Each page builds on the previous page so you must not work ahead. If we have not chatted, then pick up the phone and call me, especially when there is a Moon in Aries and a time for new beginnings.

One more tiny gentle reminder, if you have order a Transits and Progressions Report we should have had a brief phone conversation as well. I also state on this order form that it is up to you to call me. When you order this report I want you to know how to use it, so let's get you crankin' folks, especially when there is a Moon in Aries and a time for new beginnings. Rock n' folks . . let's go!!!

I DOUBLE DARE YOU!

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, The Best Years

If you are a newbie to this site I typically write these Daily Messages based on the song that wake up to in the morning. I don't wake up to an alarm clock except the one in my head which comes in the form of what I call a musical DLG (Download from God). I take this as God speaking to me through music simply because I'm a music buff. Whatever that message happens to be is what I share with you. I think God speaks to each of us in a way that is easiest for us to listen and still, some of us will continue to ignore the signs, symbols, music, words, messages, do-overs, lessons, colors, people, timing, dreams, visions, etc. What will it take people?



"For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men,
in slumber upon the bed; then he opens the ears of men,
and seals their instruction."
Job 33:14-16

I've never been much of a sleep dreamer not to mention the fact that I wake up super fast, which is probably why I can't remember dreaming. So since music resonates with me so well, God gave me the gift of being clair-audient (auditory, hearing) so I can actually hear Him speak to me. Sometimes this comes through His Spoken Word and sometimes it comes through music. Well this morning I woke up hearing Kelly Clarkson sing, "Breakaway". What an interesting song to wake up to on a day when the Full Moon is in Pisces. If you read your Daily Horoscope today then you know there is an ocean/sea/flood of emotions today. Folks, I'm telling you this is a very intuitive day if you can take yourself there. Many will not be able to do this simply because the emotions are hyper-sensitive and they'll get caught up in the drama. But wait! Pisces is THE MOST intuitive sign of the zodiac and if you can tap this area of your Natal Chart. Pisces is also THE MOST fearful and doubtful sign of the zodiac which is exactly what makes these two little fishies swim in circles and chase their tail. Knock it off folks! Fish have incredible equilibrium and they are lightening fast little rascals.

It's no secret that I have a South Node in Pisces but I have learned to 'use' what I already know. You see folks, your South Node is what you already know. It's what you have already learned through a past life. You don't have to learn it again. All you need to do is 'know that it is so'. So since Pisces is THE MOST intuitive sign of the zodiac, then my intuition has to be a bottomless pit of information. So once I embraced this instead of chasing my tail and being fearful of making a decision then intuition came easy and I apply what I already know (the South Node) to drive me toward my North Node (Virgo, healthcare). Did you know that a doctor with a North Node Virgo (healthcare) can even be right 'on accident' with their patients simply because of that South Node Pisces intuition. As a South Node Pisces I had to learn to let go of the fear and use it to my advantage. Actually I'm one of the lucky ones with my South Node because it connects three Grand Trines and I have both Chiron (wounded healer) in Pisces and the Part of Fortune (extra blessings) in Pisces sitting right on top of my South Node. It makes following my intuition that much easier.

I don't use fear to hold me back
I use it to drive me forward.
Dr. Loretta Standley~

Even though some people will embrace this Full Moon in Pisces today with hyper-emotions and fear I challenge you to breakaway from your usual pattern (which probably isn't working for the hundredth millionith time anyway) and use your South Node as a gift. It is something you already know and you don't have to re-learn. You don't have to study it or research it but you do have to use it to feed your North Node. Let's say that you are going to read a book. Well you don't have to re-learn the alphabet. You already know the alphabet. Just read the dang book for cryin' outloud. And if you are balancing your checkbook, you don't have to re-learn the basics of math (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication). Geez, you've already done that too. Just balance the dang checkbook! Folks, it's the same thing with your South Node.

If you want to dive into your Nodes, I'm easy to reach for 15, 30, 60 and 90 Minute Insight Readings or just call me at the number at the top of this page to check my availability. In the meantime, in each gray box of your Daily Horoscope there is a link to each signs 'rulerships'. Read these rulerships and familiarize yourself with both your North Node and South Node. If I wrote your Natal Chart then there is plenty of information that I wrote about both your North and South Node. Folks, it is time to breakaway and stop staring out the window hoping something will change if you stare it down long enough. Phooey! Actions speak louder! With a Full Moon in Pisces . . I dare you to breakaway . . . Actually, I double dare you!

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

THE BEST YEARS

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, There's No Place Like Home

I woke up this morning thinking of a certain patient of mine from seven years ago. As I listened to this morning's musical DLG (Download from God) play out in my head I wondered what she was up to these days. I had just finished needling her (acupuncture) and I could feel a wave of energy whoosh out of her body like I had popped a balloon. Her eyes were closed as she laid there seemingly relaxed but I felt differently. She wasn't relaxed at all. I could feel (sense) her butt muscles clenched. Believe me, no one on the planet is relaxed if their butt muscles are clenched because they are typically holding onto something in fear. What's the difference between stress and fear? Nothing, not a dang thing! Suddenly I felt this woman had not shared everything with me, not even the fact that she had constipation because I could 'feel' it.

As an intuitive (not a psychic) 'I feel' emotionally and physically. You see folks, psychics 'see' and intuitives 'feel'. Alright, every so often I may get a vision like the rainbow in my room the other day but I'm typically clair-sentient (feeling) and clair-audient (hearing). Clairvoyance (vision) has never been a prominent gift in me. I happen to feel and hear. I can feel others depth of Love, happiness, sadness and even physical pain. I can 'feel' specifically too; meaning that I might feel success, loss, desperation or change with respect to a job, money, a relationship, family ties, etc. That's why I'll use an astrological chart to show you on paper what I "feel". I want you to see how this is so.

Since she was my last patient before lunch I decided to just stay in the room with her and see if I could get her to say what I already felt was true. You see, part of my work whether that is doing health and laboratory test consultations, intuitive readings or astrological consults is getting the person to admit what is really going on. I don't want anyone in their vulnerability to just agree with me. That's not right, it's not nice and it's not empowering the individual. I've been to enough psychic's and intuitive's in my lifetime that I can tell you that I held on so tight to what they said would happen that I kept myself from making a healthy decision. You see folks, what you are told in that moment doesn't mean you have no power, no self-control or no free will. You still get to choose how long, how easy or how difficult something will be. If you need to be miserable a little while longer until you get a clue, then okay, that's why it'll take.

"I called out to God,
'He didn't have to treat me that way to get me to leave.'
And what I heard back was, 'Yeah he did.'"
Dr. Loretta Standley~

As I gently moved into a conversation with her and shared with her what my body was feeling she opened up about her abusive relationship. In the land of astrology . . emotional, chemical, physical and sexual abuse are all the same thing. It's abuse no matter what category you label it. This woman called it emotional and sexual abuse. Then for some reason I was compelled to say to her, "You're not crazy." It's as if those were the words she had been waiting to hear from someone, anyone. I could feel my stomach churning, my abdomen felt bloated and cramped in addition to an awful feeling of nausea. As she continued to sob my lower abdomen grew even more painful. Then through short bursts of hiccuping sobs she said, "I gave that man the best years of my LIFE!" In a serious and truthful tone I said, "No you didn't. You gave him the worst." She knew exactly what I meant by those words because those years were not her best. The best of her was yet to come. If it took something like this to realize she was at her worst, thereby matching his worst, then okay. There they were, where they were, together. Their souls mated up perfectly. With that she jumped off the table holding her hand over her mouth, I quickly opened the door and down the hall she ran. As I sat in the treatment room listening to her body purge from both ends the cramping in my own abdomen and the nausea I felt suddenly lifted. Interestingly enough, after she came back into the room and we wrapped up our conversation, I stood next to her to take out the acupuncture needles and they had also been purged in the restroom. Acupuncture needles fall out when they are ready, until then the body will have a firm grip on them until they are taken out or they have fallen out on their own. The needles were all laying on the restroom floor.

When I heard, "The Time of My Life" this morning by David Cook I immediately thought of her and how she gave into Love as the song says. I don't mean she gave into Love with her abuser because that wasn't Love. That relationship was anything but Love. She gave into Love for herself. I kept up with her for a while and all I can say is that woman strapped on wings, flew into a new life of her own and never looked back.

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Deal Me In!

I am a person who just Loves my family, my city and my country. There truly is 'no place like home'. I come from a very theatrical and jovial family whose collective sense of humor has a wonderful child-like innocence about it. I don't just mean my parents and siblings, I mean my entire extended family as well. Every single day of the week I talk to at least four family members which might be a parent, sibling, aunt or cousin. I talk to my daughter every day. If I tell one sibling something, then they might respond, "That's what so and so said." Word of anything spreads faster than a glass of water tipped over and 'the news' of whatever is pretty dang accurate. Okay, mom still gets her six children confused but that's just mom.

Yesterday I had to trek up to Champaign, Illinois for a dental check-up, which is a three hour drive. I know, that's a long way for a teeth cleaning but it's totally worth it since I have the best dentist in the world. As many of you know, my brother Tom is a dentist so the drive was nothing and afterward we had a fantabulous lunch together. Tom and I are sushi-addicts, so that's what we do. Just to give you an idea of the family humor; as I laid there getting my teeth cleaned I could hear Tom walk into the area next to me and his patient said, "Dr. Standley! What happened to you?" In a serious and sensitive tone he responded, "Oh, it was a horrible dental accident." It was hilarious! You could hear other patients in their chairs laughing as well. See, Tom had a minor motorcycle accident last week while down in Cherokee, NC visiting my parents and he broke his leg, so he's on crutches. He has a fantastic sense of humor and always pulls some silliness when I'm in the chair. My entire family is always ready to bust a gut and have a Good laugh.

When it comes to my hometown city, St. Louis is a very playful, artsy, cultural and active City. Every week my friends and I go to one of the concerts in the park around town. On Tuesday night we were sitting with our picnic baskets, chairs, blanket, wine, cheese and other delicious provisions talking about how much there was to do in St. Louis . . FOR FREE! I made the comment that those who think the City is boring has to be a boring person because there is so much to do . . and FOR FREE. How can you pass up free? Two weeks ago we went to the free Blues Festival downtown next to the Gateway Arch, spread out our provisions and stayed all day. There is just so much to do that I could go on and on and on.

Then there's my country, the United States of America. When I think about the worst day of my Life, it has to be, hands down, this date seven years ago, September 11th, 2001. On an emotional level I don't understand how that date couldn't be the worst day for the majority of people because it was so horrific and it changed all of our lives in an instant on so many levels. On an astrologic level I get it because we are all made up so differently which makes us act and react differently. This was my homeland and I won't let myself forget that date. It also helps me appreciate my freedom that much more. Folks, I am a Cancer Rising (home and family) with Mercury (communication) in Cancer. So naturally my home and family means everything to me and communicating within my home and family includes my biological family, my city and my country. I can't help but be an active participate in my family, city and homeland. Cancer rules the 'homeland' so it stands to reason why I feel the way I do and why I have a deep attachment to all three . . my biological family, my city and my country. I would do whatever it takes to protect my homeland (family, city and country). My Jupiter in Aquarius (the most freedom loving planet in the most freedom loving sign) coupled with my Love and respect for my homeland in all forms makes for these strong attachments and will cause me to protect my freedom at all costs.

What ever is happening on a personal level,
is happening on a community level,
is happening on a national level,
is happening on a global level.
Dr. Loretta Standley~

And so, having said that, I pray that everyone can experience the kind of Love, appreciation and respect for their homeland (family, city, country) that I experience every day. I also think the world would be a much more peaceful place if we came from the space of Love, laughter and respect than any other emotions. Granted there are many things I don't like personally, locally, nationally and globally but whining about it just won't cut it. Standing in what you believe, living what you believe or doing something that will make a positive difference will make a difference in the world. It begins with you, not someone else. It's up to you, not someone else. It's your Life, not someone else's. Begin inside your own four walls (home) and you will see, there really is no place like home.

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

DEAL ME IN!

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Spiritual Ecstasy

It's no secret that I have been quite a gambler with my Life. Whether it is romantic relationships, career, education or travel to name a few things, I have no problem taking a chance and throwing the dice. And if I don't like my roll, then I'll throw the dice again or take another card. The one thing that I don't gamble with is money. I don't have a personal Natal Chart that supports gambling with money, so I don't. Everything else is pretty much fair game. Okay, I also don't gamble with anything that is Pisces, since I have a South Node Pisces but other than that, deal me in!

I have hang-glided, bungy jumped, para-sailed, sky-dived and took flying lessons until I was too chicken to solo. Flying with rookie pilots is a problem for me, so how could I fly myself? Duh! I have also made drastic career changes several times in my Life without batting an eyelash. If I wanted to jump, buddy I jumped! I have been married and divorced twice before age 27. I've never been afraid to put it on the line because that's how I roll. Then it dawned on me one day that I needed to slow down and get a Life because at the rate I was going I could have been married three times by age 30. Oh I most certainly would have taken another card. It was at that point (age 27) that I started college and stayed for 8 years and took a chance on another kind of Life, which has brought me to you.

Well this morning I woke up hearing one of my favorite dance tunes called, "Straight On" by Heart. I Love dancing especially to this song. It's got a great beat and it's easy to dance too. (winky wink) Yep, I'm the first one on the dance floor. That's me! And I don't like to couples dance where a man takes my hand and spins me in, out, under and over . . YUCK! . . I like to do my own thing and I don't like to be controlled, including when I dance. I'll dance with anyone but you absolutely cannot grab my hand and hook on to me. Oh I can't stand that! There's that Jupiter in Aquarius again, which is THE MOST freedom loving planet in THE MOST freedom loving sign. I need space to do my own thing, but I digress. So I woke up hearing this song but it started at the beginning of the second stanza (below). I knew exactly what this song meant for me and what I was prepared to head 'straight on' toward. Stretch your minds folks and what this means for you! Whenever I hear this song and it comes to the point where they sing, "Comin' straight on for you" . . . the "you" happens to be the thing that is my goal, passion, intention at the time. Go for it folks and deal yourself in and as I always say, "You'll be the same age if you don't do it."

STRAIGHT ON
by Heart (Ann and Nancy Wilson)

Quite some time, I been sittin' it out
Didn't take no chances
I was a prisoner of doubt
I knocked down the wailin' wall
It ain't no sin
Got the feel of fortune; deal me in

Comin' straight on for you. You made my mind
Now I'm stronger. Now I'm comin' through
Straight on, straight on for you
Straight on for you

Now I know I got to play my hand
What the winner don't know, a gambler understands
My heart keeps playin' it through
With you, my friend
I'll take my chances on you again and again

Comin' straight on for you. You made my mind
Now I'm stronger. Now I'm comin through
Straight on, straight on for you
Straight on for you

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

SPIRITUAL ECSTASY

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, No Time Like The Present

I rarely receive visions but this morning I woke up at 4:20 hearing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" as my musical DLG (Download from God) by Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole. The way "Iz" sings this song just makes me choke up and cry for Beauty, Love and God's sake (Spiritual Ecstasy). When I finally opened my eyes I saw a rainbow in my room. Plain as day, there was a rainbow in my room folks. As I laid there listening to "Iz" sing in my head and staring at the rainbow I gave myself a quiet but big silly stretch as I thought about Jupiter (abundance and expansiveness) going direct last night and Pluto (transformation and power) going direct this evening. As I relaxed further into the moment I thought about all the things I knew about rainbows which really isn't that much.

First, Roy G. Biv is a mnemonic for the sequence of hues in the visible color spectrum, called a rainbow. In order from longest to shortest wavelength you can remember the hues by remembering Roy G. Biv -- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. It is also known as the seven colors of the chakras.

Second, rainbows are optical illusions or termed a meterorological phenomenon. But wait, if rainbows are optical illusions, how is it that we can take a picture of a rainbow? Or how is it that a picture of a mirage can be taken because that too is an optical illusion or optical phenomenon. Well it's all about refractive index which I really don't need to go into here. But still, where was light refracting (bending) as it entered a water droplet in my room? Geez, why didn't I take a picture of this rainbow in my room? It was 4:20 AM, the drapes were pulled closed and the Sun wasn't yet shining so the Sun couldn't shine it's light onto any droplets of moisture to refract (bend) - reflect on the back of the water droplet - and then refract (bend) again to create a rainbow. It was dark and no water was present.

As a motivating and inspiring song for so many people, after a while of reflection this morning I could see exactly why this song came to me today and why I had to witness this optical illusion in a dark room. The message could be many things although one that quickly comes to mind is . . learn how to see in the dark. I did write a Daily Message some time ago in April 2006 called, "Learn How To See In The Dark." Maybe after some reflection on your part, you'll know why I was inspired to share it with you. This song is truly a gift of Spiritual Ecstasy, so enjoy the Spiritual Cry if it happens to come to you while listening to this song.

The video that you will see below of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is actually dedicated to "Iz's" memory. At the end of the video you will see everyone celebrating his Life in the Ocean and then they pour his ashes into the Ocean. A beautiful man in every sense of the word.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW
by Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole

Ooooo oooooo ohoohohoo
Ooooo ohooohoo oooohoo
Ooooo ohoohooo oohoooo
Oohooo oohoooho ooooho
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby ii ii iii
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? i iiii

Well I see trees of green and
Red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark and I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I...I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more
Than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld

Someday I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me
Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I hiii ?

Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo

NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Is Passion Limited To Only One Thing?

This morning my musical DLG (Download from God) came through one of my favorite bands, Pink Floyd and their song called, "Time." This is interesting because I may run out of time, short on time or lose track of time but 99.9 percent of the time, I'm still always 'on time'. I'm such a stickler about being on time that you can count on me arriving early and rarely will you catch me arriving late. At the same time, I'm a person that won't schedule anything too far in advance unless it's a trip that requires reservations. I like to remain as open and spontaneous as possible because that's how I roll. That's also how I can take appointments and phone calls on the fly, simply because I have not locked my day into a specific time frame. A strict schedule would be downright suffocating to a gal like me. I also insist on calling my clients at the appointment time simply because I know that I'll be calling on time and I won't be waiting on them if they happened to forget the time. Okay, once in a while I flub up a connection if I was just working in Central Time, then switched to Pacific Time, then jumped over to Greenwich Mean Time while remembering that I might be in a city that is Mountain or Eastern Time. Juggling time is what I do . . but don't we all? I guess the key isn't so much juggling time, but managing time effectively, creatively and productively.

The music video below is really interesting because Father Time begins the day sleeping on the job until he's awakened by his own alarm. Throughout the video you will see people slowed by Time, blocked by Time, confused by Time, embraced by Time, going around Time, ignoring Time, stalled by Time, frustrated by Time, dictated by Time, passing Time, going through time, confronting Time, directed by Time, arguing with Time and literally 'ticked' off by Time. Time just doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks. At the same time, I think how we act and react toward Time is probably one of those big Life lessons that we are all here to learn. Just like Love.

How strange it is that I ran short on time all day because if you notice this Daily Message wasn't posted until later this evening. I ran so short on time that I missed the train and found myself standing on the platform with my head bowed trying to calm myself in the rain. Time literally stood in my way.

Enjoy the song and video below. The first full minute is rather boring just watching Father Time sleep. I could hardly stand it because I felt like I was wasting Time and it was messing with my productivity so I darted ahead to the one minute mark. (winky wink)

TIME BY PINK FLOYD

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

IS PASSION LIMITED TO ONLY ONE THING?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, September Gentle Reminders

Golly folks, I'm about to bust at the seams with all of the political hoopla going on. Last week with the DNC (Democratic National Convention) and this week the RNC (Republican National Convention) has me all wound up for some real juicy political banter. This is where I am really beginning to miss my old radio show that was completely caller driven with a focus on community, national and global affairs. Basically I was debating politics, war and religion five days a week. Yep, that was me only a few years ago, even during the first four years of this website. So that makes it only three years ago. We ran through every topic you could imagine from local government, to state government, to the federal government and then we treked all the way across the globe and picked apart the other side of the world. Knowing a bit of history, political science, geography and religion certainly helped, as well as keeping track of the votes and movements of Congress. (Excuse while I laugh!) Every current event that made the cable news headlines and ticker tape we addressed as well.

I really do miss those conversations because I learned so much, not only from my callers but my guests as well. It was exciting waiting for a guest to call my show after they finished an interview on CNN, MSNBC or FOX News or chatting with a regular guest on the Today Show like Jean Chatzky about money matters. It was quite an experience. And one thing that would always, always, always creep my crawl was trying to carry on a conversation with a caller who had no idea what they were talking about especially when it came to the voting history of a U.S. Congressman or U.S. Senator that they worshipped. I made it my personal business and daily regimen to check the voting history and it was fairly obvious to tell when a caller didn't. I could tell when a speech or silly TV commercial was being regurgitated on my show by a caller as if it were being passed off as their own thought. It would just drive me crazy and there I would go into a fact-delivering-mission.

Even though this website is not the forum for any political banter, my real point is this . . . I can tell you that politics is a "passion" of mine that will need to be satisfied. Politics will always be a passion of mine and interestingly enough it shows up in my Natal Chart as well. I have many passions and I don't feel limited in any way, shape or form to choose and manifest only one of them. Just as you have other passions besides the ones you are living that will need to be satisfied. I can definitely see myself engaging in 'on air' political banter again. I can also see myself becoming a political blogger in addition to the work I'm doing now because that energy has to go somewhere for Pete's sake! It's a passion so I cannot contain it. Maybe you can contain a passion but I can't and I won't. Political blogging is also something I could wake up and type out every day to get it off my chest. So I can tell you this, I have every intention of doing it, not only because politics is heavy in my Natal Chart but because I'm a Gemini and dual natured. (winky wink) I just need another name that will match my other personality to write it under. hehehehe

Folks, this Daily Message isn't about politics but about realizing and manifesting your passions. But while I'm on the subject and since IT IS one of my passions, if you want to know HOW your congressman or senator is voting or IF THEY ARE voting and if they HAVE EVER even introduced a piece of legislation in their political lifetime, then all you have to do is check the websites below.

To check all U.S. Senators, just click on the link www.senate.gov and over to the right you will see a link that says, "VOTES". The next page that comes up will be "Recent Votes". Under the first column in the table it will say "Vote" with a number underneath it. Click the number and it will bring up a page that shows how each U.S. Senator voted. It will either be "Yea", "Nay" or "Not Voting". And if you keep clicking around you can look back at each U.S. Senators entire voting record for a certain piece of legislation. After all, John McCain, Barack Obama and Joe Biden are all current U.S. Senators. I'd get nosey if I were you. When you click www.senate.gov my web page will remain behind it so you can still read the instructions.

To check all U.S. Congressmen, just click on the link www.house.gov and in the center of the page, fourth topic down it will say, "Find Vote Information". Click on "Roll Call Votes" just underneath it. Then click the link that says, "110th Congress, 2nd Session (2008)". And if you keep clicking around you can look back at each U.S. Congressman's entire voting record. When you click www.house.gov my web page will remain behind it so you can still read the instructions.

SEPTEMBER GENTLE REMINDERS

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Hanging By A Moment

I have made a few changes on the website over the past week for your viewing pleasure. There are also a few gentle reminders that are worth repeating for the newbies visiting this site.

1) If you read the Spiritual Progression Path (SPP) I have archived them better than ever! Now you will see a link at the top of the each SPP page that will lead you back to the main archived page for that particular month. For instance, when you go to the Spiritual Progression Path August 2008 Archives, each day is listed by date along with the mentation question posed for that particular day. I sure do enjoy writing them everyday and I hope you enjoy reading them.

2) The monster size gray box at the top of each Daily Horoscope page has an addition under "Current Retrograde Planets." I have also written a brief description about what it means when the planet moves 'out of its shadow.' If you are like me and need reading glasses, then you will need them to read this paragraph. Sorry but if I make the font size any bigger then that paragraph will increase in size tremendously. Make certain that you check your personal Natal Chart for any retrograde planets that you may have. There is a likely possibility that you were born with one or more planets in retrograde motion. Planets that are retrograde in your Natal Chart would account for why some things would come to you later in Life than others, such as; a fulfilling relationship or marriage, financial abundance, career opportunities, college, children, etc. If you have a retrograde planet in your Natal Chart, read about the retrograde planet (symbolized by the glyph Rx) and adopt the positive attributes of that planet. Easy Peasy! If you look at your Natal Chart and see an Rx, then the planet is Retrograde.

3) Please, do not add me to 'any' of your forward lists no matter how tempting, spiritual or funny the forward may be. Due to the amount of e-mails that I receive, forwards are just not in my time line. I guarantee that I won't read them. Not trying to be a meanie here, just honest. At the bottom of all my e-mails I have a standard line that says, "As a gentle reminder, please do not add me to 'any' forward list." I rarely receive forwards anymore but once a month it's worth it to just put it out there again.

4) As another gentle reminder, I do not answer 'any' health questions over the e-mail simply because it requires a volleying of too many e-mails to obtain the information I need. If long distance is a problem, then just pop me an e-mail and I'll call you. I do not charge a fee to answer health questions simply because that would be out of integrity with my mission, much less greedy. I believe everyone should have easy access to someone on the planet to answer health questions on the fly, so here I am. If your case requires a full-blown medical history, then that is where a full-blown consult would be in order.

5) If you have any other questions, I guarantee you that it will always be easier to reach me by phone. My phone number is posted at the top of each page on this website. If I have not returned your phone call within less than 24 hours. Then just call me back. Believe me, you will not bother me a bit.

6) As far as the Love, Romance and Compatibility section of this website. I believe I have finally reached a place where I can run back over to those sections and begin writing again. This is not work that I can hire someone else to do and since there is only one of me (even though I am a dualistic Gemini) I have to write it myself. Each coupling will probably take about a half hour to write and there are 364 compatibility matches. So you can see this is quite a huge undertaking. Also note that there are 131,760 astrological types so just reading the couplings under this section will not be enough information to know if you are compatible with someone. Venus and the Moon rule the attractions in a man's chart and the Sun and Mars rule attractions in a woman's chart. When you take into account each person's 7th house of relationships along with their planetary placements it certainly makes understanding each other much easier. My best suggestion is that you at least obtain your sweethearts Insight Report so that you will know if their planets are compatible with yours. Most importantly, knowing if you or their South Node is a problem.
