20th anniversary Drum Dance started by Grandfather, Joseph Rael

Dear Friends,
This year is an auspicious one for the dance arbor in beautiful Asheville, NC. They will be having their 20th anniversary Drum Dance started by Grandfather, Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow. This is the the same location where he led his last dance the year of his retirement in 1996. It is a beautiful location just east of Asheville, in Swannanoa NC and is being held on Labor Day weekend in September. It starts on Friday and ends on Sunday with a huge feast and sharing.
I have a brochure for the Dance along with Zoe Bryant's contact information if you are feeling drawn to the Dance. Altazar & I will be two of the drummers at the Dance. We have been connected with this Dance and the Land since 1995.
There is also an incredible Peace Chamber on the land (Beautiful Painted Arrow helped to dig the foundation of the Peace Chamber). This particular Chamber is the closest to Beautiful Painted Arrow's original vision. If you feel called to Dance there, you must pre-register with Zoe Bryant to make sure there is space. If you have any questions about the Dance, please contact Zoe Bryant. If you feel drawn to be there as a worker, you must contact Zoe and discuss this with her, and receive her permission to be there. As with all of the Dances, this is a closed ceremony, with no spectators or guests.

Susan Boyle

Here is some fascinating and insightful information about Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle, featured on 'Britain's Got Talent' with 'American Idol' Judge, Simon Cowell:

Priest not surprised by Scottish woman's (Susan Boyle) performance on British TV
By Simon Caldwell, Catholic News Service LONDON (CNS) --

The audience snickered and the judges of "Britain's Got Talent" either rolled their eyes or allowed their blank expressions to betray their bemused skepticism as the awkward-looking middle-aged woman told them she wanted to be as famous as the popular British actress and singer Elaine Paige.Then Susan Boyle began to sing, and they were spellbound and shocked by the beauty of her voice and rose to their feet in applause.But Father Basil Clark, who watched the show on television at his home in Broxburn, Scotland, was not surprised.He has seen the situation unfold many times before, having regularly accompanied Boyle, 47, on the annual Legion of Mary pilgrimage to the Marian shrine in Knock, Ireland.

"When I watched the judges' faces it reminded me of what I was like when I first saw Susan singing -- absolutely blown away by the quality of the singing and by that fantastic voice," said Father Clark, dean of West Lothian, the district that covers Boyle's home village of Blackburn."Anyone who sees her for the first time behaves the same way. I have never heard her sing badly, though she might lose the words if the stress gets too much," he told Catholic News Service in an April 16 telephone interview.Boyle first appeared before judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden on the ITV1 sister show of "America's Got Talent"; it was broadcast April 11.Her fame spread on the Internet, and in just five days she had attracted more than 15 million YouTube viewings of her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream," from the musical "Les Miserables."Part of Boyle's attraction is that she appears to be such an unlikely candidate for stardom. She said on TV that she has "never been kissed" and has lived alone with her cat since her mother died in 2007.According to British media, she has learning disabilities as a result of being starved of oxygen at birth. She is unemployed and, as a churchgoing Catholic, her social life revolves around her family and her parish of Our Lady of Lourdes. She also enjoys karaoke in her local pub.

Father Clark said, "When she gets up to sing it can either be wonderful or you can get the unpredictable eccentric behavior, but it is to do with the fact that she has learning difficulties."In a sense, there is a beautiful voice trapped in this damaged body," he said. "It is an absolute contrast. There she was on television acting very peculiarly and the audience was expecting peculiar things to happen and then a voice of an angel comes out -- and that's Susan."Father Clark said that local people who knew Boyle, the youngest of nine children of a family descended from Irish migrants, were "enormously proud of her and wish her the best but they are aware of the risks she is running," adding that her behavior has previously drawn cruel taunts from children."People are slightly worried about what might happen after this bout of fame," he explained."I am quite worried for her," he added. "I think it's great at one level. It might just be the thing that will make her, but she is a very vulnerable person and it could be quite difficult."It is a great opportunity for her and as far as I am concerned she should make the best of it, and if it lasts, it lasts, and if it doesn't, then it's still more than almost any one of us will ever achieve," he added. "It is important in sustaining her and making sure this is all a very, very beneficial experience."He described Boyle as "a woman of great faith" who was often "very gentle and very caring" though she could also be "needy and demanding."The world's media has camped outside Boyle's home where she grew up and where she still sleeps in the same room as when she was a child.But Boyle has decided to temporarily escape the limelight to stay with friends as she prepares for the next round of the competition, in which she is expected to sing "Whistle Down the Wind," by Andrew Lloyd Webber.She did give an interview to "The Early Show" on CBS News in which she said that her instant fame "hasn't really sunk in yet."She said that she wanted to make her performance "a tribute to my mother" who had encouraged her to sing."I knew it was something I had to do," she said. "I had to get on with it. That's where the courage came from, my mother."The ones who made fun of me are now nice to me," she said. "So, I think I may have won them 'round."

Pluto Stationary Retrograde (April 4, 2009)Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto in Capricorn (2008 – 2023/24) will make its first retrograde cycle entirely in the sign of Capricorn from April 4 through September 11, 2009, as it reverses from 3/4 degrees to 0/1 degree. This will be the first of 14 Pluto retrograde cycles within Capricorn, signifying our soul’s need for a complete overhaul of our relationships to money, resources, career, self-responsibility, self-determination, parenting and social maturation. This first retrograde cycle will show us where things are not working out in our life along these Capricorn archetypes, and the opportunities for evolution to the depth of our soul.
The purpose of planetary retrograde cycles is to review the past and let it go where necessary. This creates a void in which new ideas, desires, beliefs and actions can come in – if – we do not fill it up with recycling the old for security reasons. Planetary retrogrades are opportunities to rebel. It takes courage to exercise the will and desire nature to move forward into an unknown future. Enter Pluto at its stationary points – retrograde and direct – and deep unconscious beliefs and desires of the soul come to the surface, getting our attention, forcing their way into our consciousness.
When Pluto makes its annual stationary point to reverse geocentric direction for five months, it is easier to recognize those desires of the soul which are not working anymore. We may have exhausted the desire and yet it feels so comfortable that we keep repeating old patterns. We may feel frustrated by desires we cannot as yet seem to manifest, or control, in our lives. We experience soul dissatisfaction in the gazillion ways human consciousness can create it. The themes will run along inner and outer confrontations that clarify our soul’s deepest desires. Which desires are ready for release, as a result of our having exhausted a separating desire? Which new desires are emerging within us, at once silent as a whisper and screaming in our face?
Pluto retrograde through the zodiacal signs shows us the collective soul desires that are up for review and relative to each culture, society and country. Pluto retrograde on the broadest collective levels serves to evolve human consciousness as a species. We are noticing these collective trends on the most personal levels through the Capricorn themes of monetary policies and fiscal self-responsibilities. We are amidst natural contraction cycles within which we must ask ourselves to re-prioritize, to formulate new value references which effectively square any adopted value systems with our actual resource usage.
Hopefully, we will create the awareness, and courage, to revise our monetary supply and fiscal regulations with social systems that work for all classes of citizens, regardless of income. Most modern human history is based upon private central banking systems – the U.S. Federal Reserve is privately owned – which tend to be based upon profits, usually for the owners. Public central banking systems are based upon broader entities – like nations or states – with profits minimized in order to increase goods and services created, in order to support public infrastructure. Amongst the ostensibly ‘United’ States, North Dakota has the only state-chartered bank (owned and run by its government). It is one of only four states which have a balanced budget in 2009, and a surplus in its coffers.
In the case of the United States, the private ownership enterprise known as the Federal Reserve is comprised of almost 3,000 member banks (national and state) who collectively subscribe to stock equal to 6% of their capital, which is then deposited within the 12 Federal Reserve banks. Effectively, manifestly, the largest 10 banks own approximately 70% of the Fed stock.
This is the industry that has been lobbying for–and succeeding in the de-regulation of, its own banking laws ever since the 1980s. Neptune was in Capricorn from 1984-1998 and Uranus moved through Capricorn from 1988-1995. Pluto in Scorpio (1983/84-1995) and Pluto in Sagittarius (1995-2008) have brought money-making schemes (like derivatives, hedge funds, and credit debt swaps) that have crashed as Pluto enters Capricorn. Re-regulation of monetary/banking systems is necessary. What will we get as Pluto goes retrograde in Capricorn?
Banks need to maintain adequate capital reserves while shadow banking techniques and accounting schemes need to become more fully transparent. The lack of adequate regulations has exasperated this economic recession, and it has wildly shook up human consciousness on the most personal of levels: rising unemployment. Our banking systems will be overhauled to the degree which humanity can at once demand equity and accountability and accept and implement social responsibility for the dynamic integration of these principles within its monetary systems as they, too, grow and evolve.
What has emerged with a new U.S. administration up to Pluto’s “change of direction” is no change of direction from the past. If socially-equitable fiscal systems are not implemented then we will repeat the collective cycles (large monetary upsets) until it hurts our pocketbooks hard enough that we pay attention. What the U.S. lacks the courage to do on a national level might come about on a state level through the necessary task of balancing fiscal budgets. The seven waxing squares of Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn (2012-2015) may bring an uprising of states taking charge of their own banking systems in order to exchange public interest debt for public capital, something which is perfectly legal to do.
Pluto retrograde will reveal these themes to those who are looking. Consensus consciousness will just see one more cycle of victimization, whether from Wall Street or the federal government or both. The archetype of Capricorn is learning how to grow up and socially mature in the world. Most monetary policies are run by consensus souls more invested in short-term selfish interests at the expense of others (exclusive-based social systems) than stable long-term enterprises.
Outer planetary transits through Capricorn always bring about the evolution of social systems, either pro-actively and/or as necessary. We only have to look at the current financial state in the modern world to recognize fiscal changes are absolutely necessary in order to manifest global community. Pluto retrograde is about becoming upset enough, individually and collectively, to create change on broad social levels. Here is the first complete retro cycle in Capricorn to raise the economic themes that need to be addressed over the next 15 years.
The polarity point of Capricorn is Cancer. All of these social upheavals and reforms point to the ability of familial units to survive and flourish. Healthy emotional family units lead to greater social maturation and participation levels and less drain on public systems and coffers. Unhealthy family units lead to more and more social involvement from crime to victimization patterns (immaturity) to lack of participation within society. Healthy inner security (emotional maturation and self-reliance) creates increasing abilities to evolve with social changes.
There is always an evolving interplay between the familial unit and the social unit. How do we abide by social agreements, and yet rebel when social systems have crystallized and no longer serve the greater whole? How do social minorities gain a slice of the reforming collective? Many times the larger the social unit the slower it is to evolve, and therefore it becomes necessary for increasingly intense social upsets. Social systems that support familial bonding and basic needs tend to create healthier societies.
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn will demand that we review our desire nature around money, work and social systems. With the current contracting economic cycles, needs are simplified down to the familial basics like food, clothing and shelter. In the modern world, health care becomes the fourth basic need, and actually functions as a part of food and nutrition. Unhealthy diets contribute to more disease and social decline.
Our current health system in the U.S. is also mostly privately-based, again for profit. The problem is similar to monetary policies – should health care be for-profit based, or a basic societal need? While the U.S. spends almost twice as much on health care per capita compared to the G5 countries (Canada, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom and France), its citizens receive less in health benefits. Health care in America is an economic drain, taking away resources that could be invested elsewhere in societal needs like crumbling infrastructures in urban areas.
The evolution of both fiscal and healthcare policies will be a balance of social function and individual responsibility. Social groups will be a reflection of the collective beliefs and, therefore, systems supported by such beliefs. While the United States prides itself upon being a Christian nation, its actions (social systems) are more reflective of exclusivity-based beliefs. Perhaps it is time for U.S. beliefs to evolve beyond specific religions toward basic human rights not limited to conforming to a specific belief system, or even belief in a god.
Individually, Pluto in Capricorn behooves us to grow up. Pluto retrograde forces it upon us when necessary. Depression sets in unless we are willing to deeply question cherished beliefs and cultural understandings. Somehow, at the same time we desire more equitable social systems, it is requisite that we take the next self-responsibility step. Government and social systems cannot save us; they are not totally responsible for our unique situation. We are responsible–and acceptance of self-determine-ation allows us to function in social situations and careers, as we at once strive for ever more freedom and autonomy.
It is our personal responsibility (Cancer) to learn management of our resources like money, to determine the difference between a “need” and a “want.” It is our self-responsibility to take care of the temple of our soul – the physical body – through diet, exercise and rest. As those needs are met, we move on to the more subtle emotional reasons behind any health imbalance, and the mental and spiritual reasons behind the emotions.
Within natural law, any government functions on a manifestly social level are based upon compositionally-collective beliefs, Sagittarius followed by Capricorn. Distorted beliefs create distorted social groups and wounded souls. The upheavals belief systems have experienced through Pluto in Sagittarius will now be addressed through Pluto in Capricorn. Do we need religion to feed the children and care for the sick? Might natural spiritual laws and principles show us that the group survives better when it supports its individuals? It increases the chances of then-able-to-mature individuals to support ever better social systems in return.
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn brings on the reality checks. It takes us through re-prioritizing what are the most important needs in order to survive. It reminds us our outer world is only as good as our inner world. It draws us inward to find emotional sustenance and peace. It asks our souls to let go of desires no longer serving us. It brings the opportunities to manifest new desires emerging within our soul. It forces us to mature individually and collectively. The choices are yours–and ours. Go for it.
April 4 – Pluto stationary retrograde at 3/4 degrees Capricorn.
June 23 – Sun oppose Pluto retrograde at 2 degrees Cancer-Capricorn.
September 11 – Pluto stationary direct at 0/1 degree Capricorn.

Pluto Retrograde 2009

APRIL 4 through SEPTEMBER 11 2009

In the natal chart, Pluto tends to operate even more Plutonian when it is retrograde. It is far more intense, it possesses a higher degree of concentration and it, therefore, gives greater insights into the subconscious. Because of this intensity, the individual can see much more than normally possible and it is easy to become suspicious of the motives of others. The powers of regeneration are far greater when retrograde. People with a natal retrograde Pluto have a tremendous ability to overcome major illnesses that might otherwise cause permanent disability. Remember, retrograde motion is always directed toward inner activity such as the psyche or psychological patterns that affect the physical body. Direct motion, on the other hand, is directed towards external circumstances.

Under any Pluto transit, we feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. When Pluto is transiting retrograde, we are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning. It is a good time to research into our own Souls in order to determine exactly what we do or do not need. Because Pluto retrograde imparts an intense power for investigation, we should use this time to assess what reoccurring patterns in our lives make us feel out of control, where and why do we continually give our power away, and under what circumstances do we react so defensively that we elicit attacks from others. Pluto retrograde marks a time wherein we should seek to gain greater control over our personal life; Pluto direct is better for gaining control over professional and financial areas. My most frequent observation of Pluto retrograde is that many people do seek some form of regenerative activity. I have seen people undertake a series of internal cleansings, detoxifying diets, Eastern disciplines that put them in touch with the inner self and even intense psychological reforms.

PLUTO-MARS: APRIL 26-27; AUGUST 25-26 2009 – Pluto- Mars be intense and even obsessive mentally. When afflicted, we are urged to resist external pressure, control or manipulation by others. Do not act under pressure.

PLUTO-VENUS: APRIL 2-3 9200 – This indicates a need to change attitudes in relating. Money and relating can become complicated.

A Peaceful Awakening, a Long Dance for Peace

A Peaceful Awakening. A Long Dance for Peace
MARCH 21 AND 22 2009

TIME: 12 Noon Prepare for Lodge; for the Dance arrive early & set up your tent.

LODGE & DANCE LOCATION: Wellspring Farm located at 30375 Collosse Rd, Carrsville, VA 23315.

For directions call: Norma Andes at 757-562-1737.

This Dance is about Peace, for Peace
and a Peaceful Awakening within your self.
This dance is done during the Vernal Equinox,
the wakening of the planets for Planetary Peace.

“This Dance represents the awakening of a beautiful Pipe that was born in vision at Joseph Rael’s Sun Moon Dance in 1999. Joseph’s Dance brought forth a vision of a birth of a white buffalo and the birth of a new Peace Pipe for the planet to help end planetary discord during the coming and trying times of acceleration of our planet and our evolutionary growth. This Pipe was awakened at Bear Bute during the vernal equinox. With the coming of the comet Hail Bop this Pipe awakening holds the sacredness of Turtle Island’s Teacher White Buffalo Calf-woman and brings into form her teachings for us all. The birth of Miracle (a white buffalo born in Wisconsin) followed this vision. Ancient prophecies foretold of the birth of a white buffalo as the beginning of a new age on this planet.

The Reverend LaKotahasie Frazier was instructed to celebrate this Pipe’s awakening each and every year on the vernal equinox with a Dance for Peace. We must dance harmony back on to our mother earth. Feet dancing and souls praying is a send off of planetary awareness and awakening during the awakening of Earth mother from her big sleep and her curtsy to the sun. The arrival of spring is the regeneration of life.

I hope you all participate in this goodness,” says
the Reverend LaKotahasie Frazier

The long dance is an ancient tribal ritual that is danced throughout the night. What makes this Dance so sacred is that it embraces the lunar plateaus of your mind and bares the landscape of your subconscious mind, which in turn reveals a level of heightened awareness in your daily life, awareness that would dictate change. You will begin to "Own Yourself" and have the power within to change habits, patterns and break past barriers that hold you back from your personal growth. This Long Dance will provide for you a vehicle of change directed by your heart, intent and guided by the greater power above, Creator, "Blessed be He."

The Great Mystery and our Beauty Path call us to remember that from the very beginning of our creation, we have received our soul contract of original instructions and codes for how to live a good and prosperous life.
This Dance will be your remembering!
•Your Spiritual Contract
•Your Divine Covenant with Creator's Divine Force
•Your Original Soul Song and Steps to Dance
•Your Surrender of Will and Divine Intent to Be
•Your Relationship with others and Placement with other Dancers
•Your Ego Surrendering the Limitations of your Body
•Your Path of Personal Power
•Your Unfoldment to all the Possibilities Creator has Granted You
•Your Way of Service to Creator’s Will
Our Dance will create a Sacred Circle to dance into vision a World of Peace with right relationship with the All within the All. You will make a Medicine Shield to be displayed around the circle of your Dance. This mandala represents the Sacred Hoop of all the people and will hold your medicine in your Dance for Peace and will reflect your efforts and intent during this Ceremony and will become a visible prayer.

Each dancer will have their own agenda and be dealing with their own issues. The unity of all the dancers, dancing the sacred spiral, will empower the prayers up and up to the beyond. These prayers then, will be revealed into Creation. AHOH!

This Dance will be danced into the wee-dawn and a new day will begin for all! Through these sacred teachings, an era to remind us how to manifest peace will emerge. A peacekeeper’s mission is to transform the root of personal and planetary discord at their Source. This is to manifest harmonious relationship first with ourselves, then with our family, with others and with our planet. We will become a NEW DAWN STAR, a beacon for all to see.

This roots, with the family of man, dancing Peace into our World and for all people. You will become a Peaceful Warrior, dancing your Light. This is the Sacredness of the Dance and the Circle of Life.

A Peaceful Awakening,

Decorating The Peace Tree: “Everyone is to make 100 prayer ties a week until the Dance: pink, turquoise, or white. The tree needs to be covered with our prayers. Please make these prayers for World Peace as we awaken into the feminine. Prayers for women to step into their power. That they may stand tall and not be crushed or knocked down for stepping into their power. And this power is the feminine principle, may it gentle us into a new era with Love, Joy, and Harmony paramount. We all must birth this new!" Says the Rev. LaKotahasie Frazier as she invites everyone to bring ladybugs of all kinds to decorate the tree for the Dance. Everyone is invited to make these prayer ties, even if they cannot come to the Dance. Someone else can bring them or they can be mailed in.

Teaching about the Energy of Your Dance Donation.
Dancers choose the donation that is the vibration he or she desires to create in the Dance and bring into one’s life. A donation of “$77” represents the vibration of Creator; the duality that Creator made of everything. The “7+7” balances and becomes “14”. The “1” is the one single heartbeat of humanity. The “1+4” equals mankind that comes to balance which is peace.

A donation of “$94” represents the birth to balance. “9+4” equals “13”. The “13” represents the 13 moons on turtle’s back. The “1” is the one collective, the union. “3” gives birth to the one collective, the union which is the duality when the opposing comes to the one thought, peace.

An Astrological Profile of Barack Obama

By Govinda
Edited by Janet Samadhi Rose
The Natal Astrology Chart of Barack Obama, the Man
Barack Obama was born in the sign of Leo, with Aquarius Rising and his Moon in Gemini on August 4, 1961. He is an extremely intelligent, charismatic, level-headed, lion-hearted leader and humanitarian, with strong ideals. He is a flexible pragmatist who considers the needs and opinions of others. His Venus is in the sign of Cancer, which shows his love for family and family values. He has worked tirelessly to help the poor communities in Chicago. He is a visionary with strong ideals, has excellent intelligence, understands human nature, and possesses the organizational skills to create structures with attention to detail and functionality. Obama was born under the influence of a "Star of David". This is a very rare mystical, celestial alignment created by two interlaced triangles of planets - a combination of two "Grand Trines". This configuration, combined with other significant astrological alignments, indicates a highly evolved soul. This alignment represents the ability to harmoniously unify Spiritual energies with physical energies and to create expansion, prosperity, abundance and success with almost anything that he puts his focus on. He has the ability to bring these very positive influences to any project or structure and make it more successful. His Aquarius Rising sign indicates that Obama is a very intellectual, independent thinker, with a strong humanitarian nature. He has the majority of the planets (eight out of eleven) on the right side of his natal chart. This indicates that he is a relationship-oriented person and a team player. His Sun and Mercury are in the sign of Leo and are both in his Sixth House, making this his strongest house (of twelve) and the area of his life that is the most energetic. This indicates a strong service orientation, with a fixed focus on work. Obama has his Jupiter in the sign of Aquarius, which indicates a person who has no class, racial or religious distinctions. He is a pioneer of social concepts for the Age of Aquarius. He insists on social, religious and moral values that are universal, impartial, and democratic in every respect. He has great tolerance, and understands that it is not necessary for all to live by the same life-style or have the same value system. He appreciates diversity and the rights of each person to be unique, as long as they are not harming or restricting the rights and well-being of others. Because his Jupiter is in the 12th House and is well aspected, he probably has an interest in, and understanding of, mystical wisdom (such as astrology, karmic law, and reincarnation). Obama, also, has a "Grand Cross" and a "T-Square". These configurations both indicate karmic patterns that his soul is ready to clear. Before incarnating, his soul made a commitment to live a lifetime of self-mastery. A Grand Cross or T-Square helps a person to develop functionality and focus. The Grand Cross is a very challenging configuration. It involves four areas of the Natal Chart that are in dynamic tension with each other. His includes Chiron Square Moon and Midheaven, Moon Square Pluto, and Pluto Square the Midheaven aspects. This, like his T-Square, shows abandonment issues and very intense emotions that he has had difficulty expressing. His personality is strongly influenced by Chiron in his First House. This indicates a desire and ability to help heal the emotions of others, after he has faced and healed his own emotional wounds. His emotional and spiritual natures are intertwined, and he will find emotional happiness and fulfillment only through a relationship with a spiritual mate. This Grand Cross shows karma with his family and with large numbers of people in his society. He must reconcile his feelings about his family of origin, then feel and express forgiveness. He must be true to his own family and develop an expanded sense of family through his relationship with society and Humanity. He may do the latter through service to Humanity - perhaps through supporting the healing of American families and helping to re-establish the American family ideal. Obama's T-Square consists of his Sun opposing his Ascendant and Squaring Neptune. This indicates an idealistic visionary who has been misunderstood by others. It represents karmic lessons around honesty. He must learn to be honest or he will be confused and unhappy. He was misunderstood by his parents as a child and experienced feelings of inferiority, abandonment and many ego deaths. These experiences have helped him to develop humility and compassion for others. Obama also has another spiritual configuration known as a "Yod", also known as "The Finger of God". This is a somewhat rare configuration (although not nearly as rare as a Star of David), which indicates a soul that incarnated with the intention of devoting this lifetime to Spirit. The Finger of God points to a special mission, in addition to his Soul Mission. This mission involves his Venus in the Fifth House, which has to do with children, family values, love and art. Obama's Venus in Cancer, in the Grand Trine with Neptune and Sextile Pluto, shows great emotional depth, true compassion, strong visionary abilities, intuitive insights into human nature, love of family and a strong desire to nurture and protect. He has already demonstrated these qualities in his work with poor communities in Chicago, during his terms as State Senator and US Senator. Obama has his North Node in the sign of Leo in the 7th House. This shows a nearly insatiable need to feel the love and acceptance of others. He must be careful not to let his desire for acceptance of his peers to affect his leadership decisions, and not to get swept up in other people's dramas. It is important that he follows his heart and not his intellect. He must make decisions from his heart and direct his great intellect to support these decisions. He has a natural ability to be in the limelight and gain the approval of others. Because his North Node is Conjunct to Uranus, his soul's purpose is linked with serving the freedom and individual rights of people, empowering others and supporting the well-being and evolution of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity. His soul mission is to help usher in the Aquarian Age in a big way. Barack Obama, the President Elect On January 20th, Barack Obama will be inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States. The inauguration, which represents the beginning of Obama's first term as President, has the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune, and North Node in of the sign of Aquarius in the 10th House conjunct to the Midheaven. This very powerful and fortunate conjunction, aka a "Stellium", represents the birthing of a new term with strong humanitarian energies characterized by expansion, prosperity, improved communications, enhanced foreign relations, expressed compassion and renewed idealism. This also brings the possibility of healing energies. By synastry with the chart of his Presidential term, Mr. Obama's natal Jupiter (in the sign of Aquarius) and Saturn (in the sign of Capricorn) are in a very fortunate alignment (Conjunction) with the Sun/Mercury/Jupiter/North Node/Midheaven Stellium of this inauguration entity. This shows Obama's ability to take the public authority role and lead this country towards increasing greatness, prosperity, world respect and honor. There is a harmonious resonance and beneficial alignment between Obama's philosophy, principles, authority and expertise with the essence of his first presidential term. Obama's Astrological Synastry with the United States The United States was born with the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Obama's natal Venus (which is one of the points of his Star of David) is Conjunct with the Sun/Venus/Jupiter Stellium of the United States' natal chart. This shows that his heart and creativity are connected with the basic being, heart and philosophy of the US. His Venus is an integral part of his Grand Trine with Neptune and Chiron. He has the ability to bring healing to the heart of America and to the relationships with other countries. His Venus, in the sign of Cancer, shows his love for family and his keen sense of family values, which will help to guide and heal the family structures in our country. Obama has developed true compassion for others and has good intuition and insights into human nature. He will bring illuminating insights into the financial problems of America and offer creative solutions for its economics. Obama's Neptune in the United States' Fourth House indicates a spiritual link and an intuitive understanding of America's roots and soul pattern. Obama's Mars (in his other Grand Trine – with Jupiter/Saturn and Moon) at 22 degrees Virgo (efficient use of power in service to others) is exactly Conjunct with America's Neptune at 22 degrees Virgo. This shows great potential for empowering America's true ideals and guiding this country to get back on track with its true idealism. His Saturn/Jupiter connects with America's Pluto, exposing hidden agendas and activities of the underworld, secret contraband, and illegal activities of the hidden government. He will provide practical solutions to the economic and other problems with foreign relations. His Moon (in the sign of Gemini) is also in this Grand Trine and is Conjunct with America's Uranus. This shows his ability to bring nurturing and healing to this country's people and support individual freedom. In Conclusion Although Barrack Obama is a highly evolved soul, with natural leadership ability and excellent intuition, he is a human being. In this delineation, I have interpreted his potential as a man and as the President of the United States. It is important that we, as citizens of the United States, accept our responsibility and do our part in co-creating the highest potential for our country. Never underestimate your power as an individual to help create a positive reality for our great nation. This can be accomplished through developing and maintaining a positive, hopeful attitude about America's political leadership and visualize the healing and safety of our people. Let's remember the principles and ideals of our enlightened founding forefathers that were based in the motto on the Great Seal, "epluribus unum, out of many one". Unity is essential if we want to affect real political change and fulfill our founders' vision. Let go of thoughts of differences between people's colors, political affiliations, and religious beliefs and remember that we are theUnited States. When we act in unity, we bless our nation and increase love. And where there is love, there is Divinity. Where there is Divinity, there are miracles. Where there are miracles there is Divine Order. In Love and Light,Govinda

Retrograde planets

Retrograde planets display an erratic motion which is linked to delays, recurrences, returns to previous conditions, reversals of events, and unexpected events occurring suddenly or becoming more dramatic and intense. A Mercury retrograde period is a difficult time to begin new projects linked to communication, networking, information-flow and travel. Extra caution is needed to ensure that messages are clearly understood and delivered; this often involves slowing things down and ensuring that compromises are not made for the sake of speed. Mercury retrograde reminds us that efficiency is built upon stability, so think of it as a maintenance period, ideal for revisiting old problems that call for action but lay ignored. If communication problems exist, Mercury retrograde will bring them back to your attention. By taking time out to resolve them now you will be better equipped to make smooth progress in the future. Mercury experiences a retrograde cycle about once every 4 months, and remains retrograde for about 3 weeks.

A Preview of 2009 Year of the Ox

By Feng Shui Master Peter Leung
Time comes and goes without a trace; we will celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year on January 26, 2009. We will say "Kung Hay Fat Choy" to everyone we meet and wish them the best in the coming year.
I have made my annual prediction public since 2004; it becomes part of my yearly research and advice for my students and clients from all over the world. People tell me they eagerly await the release of my predictions each year.
The year of the Rat will be replaced by the year of the Ox based on the 12 Chinese zodiac sign sequence. By Chinese custom we will celebrate the New Year on the first day of the year based on the lunar calendar; however in Feng Shui and Bazi we will start the New Year at 00:50 on February 4, 2009 based on the Gregorian calendar.
Every year, it is very nerve wracking for me to write the prediction, sometimes I just hope I do not get it right. I sincerely hope everyone will have a prosperous year with no major setbacks or surprises from my prediction.
Year 2009 is the year of the Ox, Ji Chou year. The yearly hexagram is Guan gua. The annual flying star in the central palace is #9 and #5 in the north. The troublesome San Sha will be in the east for 2009.
Guan gua is the 20th hexagram in the I Ching, Xun trigram on top of Kun trigram; the wind breezes across the Earth and affects everything in its path. The policy from the top will affect those below. A gentle breeze will be comforting, a hurricane will be devastating.
Guan Gua is a hexagram which indicates a downward trend following extreme prosperity. This year, it will be important for government officials to establish trust from the people who are struggling by being respectful, serious, just, honest and compassionate with the people they serve. They must pay attention to their actions and promises, continually reflecting and monitoring the results with assistance from elders, senior staff members and those with the wisdom and knowledge to offer valuable advice.
The teaching of Guan gua is to observe, to look into, to show, to exhibit, to demonstrate with respect and compassion in order to gain others’ trust.
It has been an eventful 2008 with the Si Chuan earthquake, building collapses, worldwide flooding, mudslides, demonstrations, the Beijing Olympics, the US housing meltdown, the record oil prices, the global financial/economic crisis with government bailouts and the US election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president.
2009 should be a year for “change” with a newer generation of world leaders who may be preoccupied with the possible recession we may face worldwide. It will require all world leaders to work together to deal with this crisis or we may plunge into the most devastating depression since the 1930s. From all the economic data today, 2009 certainly looks very grim. Everyone involved in the stock market is asking if we have hit the bottom. Based on my research on the worldwide stock market indices and using Huang Zhi Qing Shi’s monthly hexagrams, I believe we should bottom out around September or October 2009.
Ji Chou is earth over earth. I foresee government infrastructure and social projects which will create jobs for the construction industry and their suppliers.
Oil has been dropping since it reached $147.00 USD per barrel, therefore oil, natural gas, and coal should be a good investment for 2009.
I would recommend investment in the agricultural commodities such as wheat, soybean, fertilizer and farm equipments.
There should be plenty of investment opportunities in a bear market if you know the secret of trading stocks.
2009 will be good financially for those born in the year of the Rat, Ox, Snake and Rooster, as well as those born in Jia or Ji years. Perhaps this will be a good time to buy a house. For those born in the year of the Horse, Sheep or Dog, you may lose money this year or move this year. You also need to pay attention to your parents.
For those born during Zi, Chou, Si and You hours 2009 can be good for career or study. There is also a good possibility of having a baby. For those who are born during Wu, Wei and Xu hours 2009 may be a tough year for career or study. Take a trip if you can.
With San Sha in the east this year, we need to pay attention to the liver, blood circulation and blood pressure. In addition we need to be aware of potential problems with limbs and emotions. Also, pay attention to young males and females.
Extreme care should be exercised if you try to disturb the east. It can bring about tragedies as serious as death and bankruptcy. Be careful if your house door or bedroom is located in the east or faces east. Also if there is any disturbance, outside sharp objects or sha qi coming from the east you should be careful.
To minimize the “San Sha” effect, you can place a real plant or tree in the eastern sector, either inside or outside the house, you can also put a little bucket of water and 3 metal kiluns (facing east) with the tree. (There is a high level Feng Shui technique called “Fighting the San Sha” which can bring in money. Contact us if you need such a service to turn a rock bottom situation around.)
Tai Sui will be in Chou, northeast. Simply placing a pair of kilun in Chou mountain facing northeast may help to guard against the bad energy from that direction.
This year’s annual Flying Star chart will have number 9 in the centre, 1 in the northwest, 2 in the west, 3 in the northeast, 4 in the south, 5 in the north, 6 in the southwest, 7 in the east and 8 in the southeast.
Every home can be a safer home if we know how to deal with the yearly stars and shen sha and avoid doing the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is better to be prepared now than be sorry later.
To minimize the annual 5 yellow in the north, the “salt water and coins” cure can be used.
To minimize the annual 2 black to avoid sickness, simply place a metal calabash in the west of the house.
To minimize the annual 3 jade-green to avoid arguments and being emotional, put something red in the northeast.
To minimize the annual 7 red to avoid lawsuits, put something blue in the east.
The southeast will be the best sector in 2008 with the annual 8 white, simply put a citron crystal there for a better year financially.
Put 4 stalks of Chinese lucky bamboo or a plant in the northwest of the house to enhance the possibility of career advancement, improved academic studies or heightened romance.
Put a glass of water in the south for the possibility of career advancement, improved academic studies or heightened romance.
Putting a plant in the center of the house can bring about events for celebration.
Besides the above precautions for 2009, most people do not realize that disturbances, building, construction and renovation around or inside the house during 2009 without picking a date and time to do it can cause problems. Construction or renovations would be good in the south, southwest, west and northwest.
Wishing everyone a prosperous, successful and safe New Year in 2009,
Peter Leung

Prayer to stop Bleeding

This is from my friend Betty:
Wanted to share this with you:
Growing up I remember my family talking about a scripture that would stop bleeding. Of course, my family wasn't the most church-going folks, but they were God-loving, God-fearing Christians. They were also superstitious in saying only a man could read the scripture to a woman and vice versa, which I sincerely doubted. If God put it there, he put it there for our Faith and anyone who truly believed could use it.After I came to this area, I remembered to ask Daddy about that scripture. It is Ezekiel 16:6. (From King James Version:) "And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live"I have used it several times over the years saying it with Faith repeating at least 3 times to stop a heavy nosebleed, etc., and always, the bleeding stops. Today Heidi sent me a text message asking for me to share the scripture. Her boyfriend's frail grandmother had a severe nosebleed and they couldn't stop it. Now you know that Heidi is a veterinary technician and she definitely knows how to stop bleeding, (even though Grandma has only 2 legs, not 4)…...but they had no luck and were about to call 911. I texted them my version of the words (from my memory) both Heidi and Josh's cell phones, saying pray this with Faith, repeating it at least 3 times and Believe!
5 minutes later, she sent me a text back that the bleeding had completely stopped! Yes, Miracles still happen. That scripture is definitely worth committing to memory. Usually when you need it, it's in a hurry and you don't have time to Google for the scripture, and you don't have to say the words verbatim as long as you have the meaning.

Annual New Year's Prophecy Service

The Peace Chapel presentsAnnual New Year's Prophecy Service

Join us for our annual New Year's Prophecy Service where guides from the spirit realm give us information of what can be expected in the coming year (and beyond), and how we can prepare our selves individually and as a group for the coming times.
At the end of the session there will be time for individuals to ask questions related to the coming prophecies. For 3 years, the financial crisis of 2008 was predicted to occur in the last 6 months of the current administration, and the reasons for the crisis were given.
Prophecies are not dark and foreboding, but rather practical insights into what the future holds based on current patterns and conditions in both the physical and metaphysical realms. For the 'less than pleasant' insights, we are usually given advice on how to best prepare for, or completely avoid them when possible.Prophecies are not meant to create fear, but to give knowledge.
