SUMMER WRAP-UP SILLY FEST

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Well folks I'm heading out this afternoon with my four year old grandson Big Tree for one more final camping HOORAH! before the summer ends. Big Tree and I will be meeting up with the rest of the camping gang in Steeleville, Missouri. The gang has three major camping weekends a year (Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day) and this is the summer wrap-up silly-fest! We are a kid friendly and family friendly group so we drag anyone we can to our camping bonanza's!

This particular camping trip is our most remote get-away of the summer so I will not be able to update the website or post horoscopes through the weekend. Sorry about that but there is just no way I can get three days worth of horoscopes posted before I leave at 3:00 PM EDT. In fact, my personal cell phone and Blackberry will not even work at this location. We have to drive up through the woods a fairly Good way just to get our cell phones working.

I'm pretty excited about this camping trip because this will be Big Tree's most 'roughing it' camping experience thus far. The first camping trip in July was at a campground. And the second trip was with Christine a couple of weeks ago when I rented the Tree House. Each camping experience so far has been different than the next. Now this trip he will get to experience floating and canoeing with other kids his age. You might say, "A four-year old!" We have strict rules and guidelines that all the kids must follow or we will have no problem driving them 75 miles back home. No problem whatsoever! Plus, Big Tree knows his granny is a whole lot of whacked out fun until he breaks the rules and then I can be anything but "Fun Granny." The great thing is Big Tree is a born outdoorsman and the rules seem to come naturally. That earth sign (Taurus) really shines through on these campfests. And believe me, it takes a whole lot of trust for my little Leo cubbie (daughter, Karmen) to turn him loose camping with me and my friends without her or her husband present. Having said that, we are very experienced campers and outdoor fanatics; therefore, our kids are raised to be experienced outdoor fanatics as well.

As far as the website goes . . I have already updated your Saturn Opportunity because on Sunday, September 2nd Saturn moves out of Leo and into Virgo. Check out your Yearly Horoscope for your Saturn Opportunity. Remember, this is an opportunity and you should use it wisely. The reason why this Saturn Opportunity is in your yearly horoscope is because Saturn affects you on a yearly basis. In this case, Saturn will be in Virgo until October 29, 2009 so it will be for over two years.

This particular weekend is probably the slowest weekend of the year as far as web traffic is concerned in the United States because everyone is typically busy having their last summer fling or they are getting children ready to go back to school or college. You would not believe how slow traffic becomes on Labor Day weekend so that's why I don't feel too guilty being away from the website this weekend. I'll probably check in with my Blackberry for messages and e-mails when I drive into town but that's about it.

I have a lot of things already prepared for next week when I return. I'll update you at that time. In the meantime, have a fantastic and safe Labor Day weekend. For those of you in other areas of the world, I hope you have a fantastic weekend too.

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

"IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, CALL ME"

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

One phrase that bugs the heck out of me when people are going through a loss, crisis or tragedy is, "If you need anything, call me." RIGHT!

People going through emotional devastation with a loss, crisis, grief or tragedy typically do not pick up the phone and call anyone. Whatever they are going through can be so great that the last thing they are thinking about is what they need. Their problems can seem so insurmountable and overwhelming that they do not want to put anyone out or become a burden to anyone.

Last night I was watching Entertainment Tonight as they were doing a piece on the actor Owen Wilson who had allegedly attempted suicide. They were interviewing various movie stars about this, when married couple (John Travola and Kelly Preston) looked into the camera and Kelly said, "If you need anything, call us." John Travolta followed with, "Yeah, call us." I said outloud, "Why don't you call HIM you nit wits!" Geez, I can't stand that line at funerals or anywhere else when someone is suffering devastation, heart ache and grief. Why doesn't the person just say, "If you need anything call me because I can't left up my lazy dang finger and dial you myself or put aside my own lazy dang self to call you in your time of need, desperation and grief. I'm too busy thinking about ME! Just call me so it will be easier on ME!"

I suppose I am more sensitive to this after experiencing My Path of Transformation from having a women's clinic to doing what I do now. It was a long challenging road for quite a while. I definitely learned about having friends and how to be a friend. While creating this website I actually hit the point of having no food and I mean NONE. Folks, it was really bad. I didn't even have money to buy a bag of spagetti to make the food last. Fast forward . . just last year I was chatting with a friend who was going through a challenging and scarey financial time. She was getting more concerned that she might not be able to meet her monthly expenses if business stayed the same. I asked if she had food and did she need money for her utilities and phone. I went straight to the immediate needs. (I've been there.) She said she was fine and it hadn't reached that point. I was fully prepared to load up her refrigerator and cabinets and make certain she had utilities and phone service. The point is . . instead of saying, "If you need anything, call me" . . I believe if you mean IT, whatever IT is, then they will not have to call you. You will call them.

Too many times in my Life I can count when I knew someone needed help and I did nothing. So now, big deal if I run a little late because someone needed help. Big hairy deal. I don't really want to tell this next little story but it fits right here and I'm telling it to you because I feel motivated by Spirit (God) to tell you.

One day my mom and I had to stop by the Chancellory where the Archbishop's office is and drop something off for him. It was a blistering hot day. As I came out of the building there was a woman who had obvious mental problems who was dancing around on the hot pavement. She was scaring the passer-bys through her actions as some people clutched their purses and others were trying to get her to just move along. I ran up to the car and hopped in as my mom and I sat there quietly looking at her. Then the whole moment registered as I yelled out, "Oh My Gosh!" and my mom said, "That woman doesn't have any shoes on!" As my mom started pushing the shoes off her feet, I was already opening the door. It turns out we were both receiving the same DLG (Download from God) at the same time. I jumped out of the car and ran up to the woman and put my arms around her shoulders to slow down her dancing as I helped her into my shoes. I kept saying, "Your okay, here you go. Here you go. It's okay now. You're okay." She immediately calmed down and walked down the sidewalk as if nothing happened, still mumbling and talking to the wind. Mom and I said nothing about it to each other and just drove around the block, went back to my place and I put on another pair of shoes.

I'm going to pull the religious card on you right now because it is my website and I can do what I want on my website. You know that scripture that says, "And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left." - Matthew 25:33. The basic and bottom line translation for separating the sheeps and the goats is this . . . it's not what you did, it's what you didn't do. That's the difference between the two. Folks, if you see or know someone in need, do not wait for them to call you. It is you who needs to call them. You should be telling these people in need, grief and despair, "I'm going to call you and check in with you." And when you call you can say, "I'm going to the store and I need your list." Folks, it's not what you did, it's what you didn't do.

Affirmations, Belief Systems
and Prayer

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

If you sincerely believe something, then that belief should change the way you live your Life. Folks, there is an entire section on this website devoted to teaching you all about prayer, meditation and affirmations. People often e-mail me and ask, "Do affirmations work?" I sit for a few moments squeezing my glabellar lines (the vertical lines between my eyebrows) and think, "Hmmm, do they work?" Remember, I was a Physics major and the definition of work to me is an equation that says . . Work is the transfer of energy from one physical system to another, especially the transfer of energy to a body or object by the application of a force that moves the body in the direction of the force. It is calculated as force x distance = work. It looks like this F x s = W (W is work, F is Force and s, yes I said "s", is distance). Force x distance = Work

So hmmmmm, do affirmations work? Well heck ya' they "work" if you apply some force and move your energy a distance. In other words, if you are retraining your mind to think a better way and you are indeed thinking a better way, then it is difficult to go back and think the way you once did and this impacts your choices. Your spirit has moved (progressed) some distance. It is no different than applying force with your shoulder into the side of refrigerator to move it across the room 10 feet and therefore you have accomplished "work". Apply force a certain distance and work is accomplished. Energetically it is the same dang thing! But if you are just sitting there rattling off affirmations as fast as you can say them in order to get your 40 repetitions in for the day, (I am rich, I am rich, I am rich, etc.,) without sensing and feeling all that a rich and abundant Life has to offer, well then all I can say is, "Good Luck!" And I don't even believe in luck; therefore, I wouldn't believe for a second that type of affirmation reciting would work for you.

You must also remember that affirmations are not a lucky charm that if you say them enough your wish will come true. Even a rabbits foot is not intended to bring you Good luck as much as it is intended to remind you to think positive and that in turn causes you to make positive choices. In other words, it changes the way you live. My belief system does not include luck because I firmly and boldy believe in God, Jesus, His Archangels and angels. That's where I'm at in my Life and so it changes the way that I live my Life. If you believe you are an abundant child of God, then why act cheap? Why not eat off the china everyday? If I believe I'm God's child and He has my back, then why be afraid of anything? If I really believe that I can do anything with God, then what wouldn't I do for and through His name? Geez, my belief systems are outrageously cool and they "work" for me because I deliberately live my Life according to what I believe and I don't hide it.

If you are one of those people that says, "Well I believe ______ and this hasn't been working for me." Well my response is, "Maybe you are just giving lip service to a belief system and you don't really quite believe it." This is where Faith comes in. Faith to me means, "I'm Good not knowing why. I trust God!" It could be that you are not really applying any force or moving your spirit one tiny inch of a distance. If you believe something, then it should stimulate you to an action. Maybe you are just sitting around waiting for your Life to change or someone to change your Life for you. If my child sat around and just waited for her ship to come in and didn't put forth effort, as an attentive parent, I would sit too and watch her learn how to move her energy the hard way. I would be teaching my child a lesson. Oh you betcha' I would! I'm certain, God being our Ultimate Parent knows how to teach us how to move our energy too. (winky wink) It is interesting how we humans have to learn gratitude.

The repetition of affirmations is meditative and intended to train you to think differently. Many people cannot climb out of the hole they are in simply because they are not thinking any differently. They are focusing on the hole and not the most simple solution that is staring at them in the face. The solution would be climb the ladder and get out. Oh but wait, that takes work (force x distance). I can't imagine God rewarding anyone for being lethargic, slothful and lazy. That wouldn't even make sense. If you are saying affirmations and praying, then you should be living your Life to reflect what you believe. If you are saying financial affirmations and praying for more money and you cannot even handle the small amount of money that you have right now, then all I can say is, "Good luck" because again I don't believe in luck and I don't believe that a money situation will improve without change first coming from you to match that affirmation. It's called, "follow-through." The same thing goes with weight issues or any other issue that might be a challenge for you. If you sincerely believe something, then that belief should change the way you live your Life.

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

GREETINGS FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA! Well we're leaving Las Vegas today. What a great time this has been! I'll make certain I get a few pics of "H" and I posted when I get back to St. Louis. Any e-mails I receive from this point on until later this evening will be responded to from my Blackberry. I apologize in advance for any grammar or punctuation that you might receive. All Natal Charts ordered today will be written and e-mailed later this evening. "LOOK! Up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, oh that's just Dr. Standley again." Later baby!

GREETINGS FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA! I woke up really early thinking I had all kinds of time on my hands being on PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) and then it dawned on me that I was three hours behind in my thinking. So I had to stop reading my book and start typing. Sorry about that folks. Even though I live in Central Time, with regard to this website I always think in Eastern Time. It's a crazy Life but someone has to do it. I'm still her in Las Vegas with "H" and today is officially her birthday! Yippee! We saw Celine Dion last night and it was a breathtaking show. Even better, she ended the show with the song I wrote about yesterday (below), "My Heart Will Go On." Today we are going to hit some of these crazy roller coasters since there are several of them running in, out, through and around these mega-mondo-hotels. I'll be back later, as usual, to write Natal Charts and respond to any e-mails. Don't worry, this Gemini can keep up with you. Weekly horoscopes will probably be updated tomorrow. Sorry about the delay on the weekly's. Oh - I welcome any Birthday E-mails to "H" (Henrietta) . . just send them to my e-mail address at drstandley@aol.com. Later Gator . . we're "off to see the Wizard". The wizard would be whoever is making our breakfast this morning. (winky wink)

GREETINGS FROM LAS VEGAS, NEVADA! In the City that never sleeps, neither do I. The big plan this evening is "H" and I are going to see Celine Dion for her birthday, which is actually tomorrow. As it turns out Mary Beth (Aries in Reno) had to cancel with us at the last minute for work-related reasons. So we bummed for a bit and then got over it. (winky wink) So "H" and I are on our own. I'm actually a 'classic rocker' but come on, who doesn't like Celine Dion tunes? The absolute best Celine Dion tune to meditate to and think about God's Love is, "My Heart Will Go On". Wasn't that the Titanic theme song? I suppose most people relate to this song in the form of relationship romance but I can only feel and see "Spiritual Romance" in that song. It is total GOD and soooooo Spiritually Romantic. I mean when you think about God's Love and listen to that song, you will be curled up in the fetal position crying your heart out like a helpless little baby knowing that you are God's child and He is your Source and Supply of all spiritual, emotional and material substance. GOD IS SOURCE with a capital "S". I think we confuse our sources sometimes. GOD IS SOURCE! It's awesome! Wow - I am totally living up to the Gemini horoscope today. HA! Until later . . now go listen to the song, "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion.

Every night in my dreams
I see You, I feel You,
That is how I know You go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show You go on

Near, far, wherever You are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once, more, You open the door
And You're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

I have a little surprise for you. Unlike Oprah, I JUST LOVE SURPRISES! I received a wonderful DLG (Download from God) this morning. Once I receive a DLG, I act on it! BOOM! There's nothing like right now! In today's Daily Horoscope will you notice a pretty blue box with the location (degree) of all the planets. In this way you can look at any house cusp in your Natal Chart and compare it to where the planet is right now. So if you want to know when a planet will transit (move through) a certain house in your Natal Chart, then just look in the blue box and see what degree it is. FOR EXAMPLE: IF, you have a 5th house cusp at 7 degrees Gemini and you look in the blue box and see that Mars is 11 degrees in Gemini, then you know that Mars is 4 degrees into your 5th house. If say the 5th house cusp is 20 degrees Gemini, and Mars is in Gemini at 11 degrees, then it has 9 more degrees to go before it reaches your 5th house. That means the Mars in Gemini energy is still moving through your 4th house because it hasn't quite reached your 5th house. That my little chickadees is how you relate the transiting planets to your personal Natal Chart. Let's not make this any harder than it has to be. Please do not e-mail me about Uranus, Neptune and Pluto Retrograde. I will write something on these and post it with the links in this blue box. In the meantime, I'm off to play. I'll return later to write any Natal Charts ordered today. LATER BABY!

What Happens in Vegas,
Stays in Vegas

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

This weekend I'm flying off into the sunset once again and I mean that literally! In fact, I'll be flying due west right smack dab into the sunset. Back in June I received a phone call from my friend "H" (Henrietta) who said, "Meet me in Vegas for my birthday!" Well, being "The Opportunist" that I am, what was I going to say . . . No? Of course not! I said, "Yeah baby! What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas." So this weekend "H" (Virgo in L.A.), Mary Beth (Aries in Reno) and myself (Gemini in St. Louis) are meeting in Las Vegas for H's birthday. Actually with those two single gals over 50, they could probably lead me astray. ooooh, I wonder who's gonna be the red-head. (winky wink) Oh I'm just kidding.

H's birthday is actually Monday, August 27th so we'll have plenty of time to get into trouble before then. I call "H" a 30 percent Virgo, meaning 70 percent of the Virgo's are the typical Virgo and the other 30 percent don't quite fit the pattern. "H" doesn't fit the typical Virgo pattern and is actually an adventurous and spontaneous child trapped in an 11th grader Sun Sign. As usual, I'll have my mega-mondo-ninja-commando-computer with me. The City that never sleeps will actually be right up my alley since the world-wide-web doesn't sleep either. I'll still be easy to find . . you certainly don't have to worry about that. I'm always around, even out-of-town. Ssshhhhh . . remember, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

I AM AN OPPORTUNIST!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

As I have stated before in another Daily Message, I claim to be "an opportunist". I honestly do my best to take full advantage of every opportunity that comes my way. I have a saying that goes like this, "Buy the dress, the party will come." The same goes for shoes, "Buy the shoes, the party will come." I prepare and then wait for the opportunity. This is probably because I am very clear on what I want; even more so, I am clear on what I don't want.

Don't focus on what you don't want,
just be clear about it.
-- Dr. Loretta Standley

Imagine how much possibility that leaves me when all that is left is what I want and then some . . . even if I don't yet know what else that could be! Is that exciting when you think about it?!?! I'm just clear and then everything else is fair game. How I go about getting what I want is entirely up to me. If an opportunity is offered to me and then I just sit on my hands and do nothing, then I would lose the opportunity. I have offered opportunities to other people through this site only to hear nothing from them. The opportunity was entirely for their benefit; I just happen to make myself more than available to them. That just baffles the heck out of me when an opportunity is ignored, sloughed off or even thrown away. Believe me folks, if I offer you an opportunity, I guarantee you that I will not track you down. I'm here, you know where I'm at and how easy it is to contact me.

At the same time, when someone poses an idea or opportunity to me, I go to work in my brain trying to figure out how I could make that happen. If the idea or opportunity is something that interests me then I nab the opportunity by saying, "YES" right away. After all, I can always change my mind if it turns out that my interest waned. Something happened yesterday that reminded me of what I am about to tell you.

When I first became 'seriously' interested in astrology, my Feng Shui consultants at the time told me about this astrologer in Nashville, Tennessee. They spoke so highly of him that I could not resist the "opportunity" to contact him. The same day they gave me his phone number was the same day that I called him because after all, "I am an opportunist." Within seconds of speaking to this man he had all of me down cold. He asked for my daughter's birth date and when I told him he said, "Oh she has a dent or a small indentation on the left side of her head." I said, "Yeah! She had an accident on a 4-wheel all terrain vehicle and cracked her skull so she has a slight indentation there that you can feel through her hair." He said, "Uh huh, uh huh, yeah, I know, I know." I said, "Are you telling me that that accident was going to happen?" He said, "Yep! It's right there." I could tell he was pointing right at her chart. I said, "Well what about free will? Don't we have free will?" He said, "Yes you do. It's up to her and you and everyone else how you handled that accident. Everyone is given challenges, this accident was one of those challenges." He went on to say, "Astrology is not Law; God is the Law! Astrology is "the rules;" and the rules are often broken." In other words folks, no one is going to get off this planet without going through some challenges and applying the rules. It is precisely the challenges that build our Good character. If you didn't have any challenges to deal with, then why be here? Besides, challenges are only as challenging as you make them. If you don't want to take advantage of an opportunity, okay, it's your choice. Keep in mind, opportunities are sometimes disguised as challenges. Just like the Universal Language of Mathematics, sometimes Algebra can be a challenge, especially if we do not follow the rules.

Needless to say, the very next week I drove 308 miles in 4-1/2 hours to Nashville, Tennessee to have a personal chart reading with this man that cost me a whopping $350. We sat there as he pointed out each planet and took me through "myself" one planet at a time. Within a couple of weeks I had arranged my patient schedule at the clinic to take classes with this man (may God rest his soul) every single Thursday night. This was an opportunity to learn more and I was not about to pass it up. That opportunity has since led me to you. Folks, astrology did not just pop into my head. I worked at it, I studied it, I lived it and drove 308 miles a week for two years to enjoy the opportunity of learning with "Thomas" until he passed and went Home to God. Now I get to teach you everything Thomas taught me. That's an opportunity for you!

Folks, opportunities can come in the simplest form as it did the day my Feng Shui Consultants gave me Thomas' phone number. That one phone call turned into this mega-mondo hit for my website that I may have had to work harder using some other topic that 'might' reach the masses. Astrology is not the only thing that I do because the majority of this website is about health including the health consults and laboratory interpretations that I do. It just turned into another aspect of me through an opportunity. Folks, open yourself up to opportunity. Refrain from saying "no," because you don't "know," or because of a lame excuse that you are too afraid. Phooey! You should be too afraid not to do it, whatever 'it' is. Heck, I didn't "know" either . . but that didn't stop me because I am an opportunist.

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

SATURN - FEAR NOT!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

I'll get straight to the simple point on Saturn. If you have something to learn, then Saturn is there to teach you. Saturn is all about responsibility, father, patience, teacher, karma and structure. Please refrain from being afraid of Saturn moving through one of your houses for your Sun Sign or through your personal Natal Chart. There is a difference between horoscopes written for an entire sign and how a planet influences your personal Natal Chart.

TRANSITING SATURN

1) ONLY PERTAINING TO HOROSCOPES: Saturn transits (moves through) each sign for 2 years taking about 24 years to transit (move through) all the Sun Signs. Saturn has been transiting (moving) through Leo since July 16, 2005 until September 2, 2007 after which it will then transit (move) into the next sign of Virgo for two years. So on September 2, 2007 your yearly horoscope will change because Saturn has a "yearly" influence. Whereas the Moon has a daily influence, which is why I write your daily horoscope according to the Moon.

2) ONLY PERTAINING TO YOUR NATAL CHART: Since Saturn is in Leo right now, then that means Saturn is moving through the house that is ruled by Leo in your Natal Chart. This is how Saturn affects you PERSONALLY as it transits (moves) through the Sun Signs. Remember, horoscopes are written for an entire population of people and not to you PERSONALLY. Horoscopes specific to you would be your Transits and Progressions because they are written specific to your personal birth information. So your Natal Chart is PERSONALLY AND DIRECTLY related to you and no one else on the planet and so are your Transits and Progressions.

WHERE IS THE PLANET SATURN IN YOUR CHART?

3) EVERYONE HAS THE PLANET SATURN SITTING IN ONE OF THEIR HOUSES IN THEIR NATAL CHART. This is not referring to "transiting" Saturn. You must remember the planets are always transiting (moving) around. BUT, at the exact moment you were born is an exact snapshot of where the planets were at the time of your birth. When the snapshot was taken of my Natal Chart, my "Natal Saturn" was in my 7th house of contractual relationships and it will stay there until the day I turn to Light and leave the planet. None of your "natal" planets ever move. EVER! They are locked in place and you have to work through their energy. I have to work through my "Natal Saturn" in the 7th house for the rest of my Life. (It's getting better to work with as I get older - winky wink) My Natal Chart was the picture of the planets at the exact place they were at the time of my birth. Your Natal Chart is your blue print or finger print. It NEVER EVER changes!

It is the transiting planets that I am referring to in this Daily Message.

As a Gemini, for the past two years Saturn has been teaching us Gemini's about improved communication because Saturn has been transiting (moving) through Gemini's 3rd house of communication. (See your monthly horoscope to see what house Saturn has been moving through for your particular Sun Sign.) I remember two years ago when Saturn first entered Gemini's 3rd house, it seemed like I couldn't say anything right. Everything I said was being taken the wrong way or out of context. It did not matter if I was at church, with a family member or with a friend, everyone had something to say about ol' Loretta's style of communication.

Well, Bless-ed for me that I was fully aware of Saturn spanking Gemini in their 3rd house for 2 years (July 16, 2005 to September 2, 2007) so my response to those complaining-mouthy people was gently, "Okay, I'll look at that because I want to change that about me. If that is what I sound like, then I want to change it. Thank you!" Don't think for a second that it wasn't hard for me to gently say that being the outspoken communicative Gemini that I am. I was pissed! I felt picked on and verbally reprimanded by everyone. And I mean everyone! Even through e-mails people were taking my words the wrong way. In the very beginning of this Saturn influence on my 3rd house I began all of my e-mails with this statement, "Since e-mail does not reflect tone, please know that this e-mail is being sent in a gentle tone." Saturn has taught me a lot about communication over the past two years for which I am grateful. I instigated change within me from the very beginning and the difficult times lasted only a brief period of time. As a Gemini, I had to self-monitor my verbage, tone and body language. On September 2, 2007 this Saturn influence will then enter the next house for my sign (the 4th house) which is home and family. Oh man! This can cause Gemini's to walk on eggshells with family members for the next two years. Again, at least I am blessed to be aware of it and I have already started self-imposing rules to handle myself with family over this next two year period.

Again, check your monthly horoscope to see what house Saturn is in right now for your particular sign because on September 2, 2007 it will advance to the next house.

For my personal Natal Chart, since Saturn has been moving through the sign of Leo for the past 2 years, then Saturn has directly affected my 2nd house in my personal Natal Chart. Remember this second house is about your self-worth, personal possessions, personal money that you make in your own right and your morals and values. I have to say, I did get a huge swat on the butt in everything this house represents and I self-corrected really quick. I didn't need two swats! In a previous Daily Message I stated that going to the ATM is how I would check my bank balance. Well, I used the discipline and responsibility of Saturn in this 2nd house to balance my checkbook once and for all. There isn't one day that goes by that I don't monitor my money. I know exactly what I have and how much I owe. To the penny! I also refuse to pay late fees for anything now, even my library books. Now that's being responsible with money, huh? Even though I have always worked for myself and made my own way, I never really learned the value of a buck. Now I know. Saturn has definitely taught me how to be responsible in this 2nd house and keep track of my bills with a monthly log of what comes in and what goes out. Here's the most interesting thing about this 2nd house . . the more disciplined and responsible I became in the 2nd house, the more money I ended up creating for myself. Folks, Saturn absolutely Loves to reward those for a job well done. Just like a Good father.

You don't have to choose to take 2 years to learn a lesson. Make yourself aware of which house is affecting your entire Sun Sign and which house Saturn is directly affecting in your Natal Chart. You can all self-correct this Saturn influence before Saturn has to reprimand you like a father. Just straighten up right now and you will be fine. Sound easy? It is. If you need personal guidance on how to handle upcoming Saturn in your Natal Chart, then just go to The Holistic Shop and choose the amount of time you would like to spend chatting about it. It really is that easy.

OUTBACK GRANNY

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Before Christine (Aquarius) and I (Gemini) took off with my grandson Big Tree (Taurus) last Friday to go camping this past weekend, I had strict instructions from my daughter Karmen (Leo) not to bring him back wore out or sick. There's no doubt, I've pushed the envelope many times before so I can see her point. When Big Tree and I get together we move at mach-speed cramming in as much fun as possible before we turn into a pumpkin.

We had a smooth ride down to Lake of the Ozarks and checked into our tree house cabin. And it really was a tree house with a huge deck and stairs leading up about 2-1/2 stories. After we set up camp with the clothes line, pop up tent over the picnic table, Big Tree's small dome tent for asthetic value, started the fire and prepared the picnic area for dinner I could not believe what I was seeing. Folks, I have been on many trips with Christine and have witnessed many instances where the "I know this will work if I have to force it Aquarius" came out in her. The keyword phrase here is, "I know." Remember, "I know therefore I am" is the Aquarian motto. I've seen Christine "know" how to fix and force many things over the past several years but nothing like this. I've also seen her drive her Jeep Liberty over some fairly rough terrain while on camping or hunting trips that were pretty tight squeezes but nothing like this.

This upcoming scene was priceless and was a total "Steve moment" who is another "Know-it-all-Aquarius" in our group of friends. I looked up and saw Christine trying to drive her Jeep Liberty between the tree house and a small group of trees. Both the tree house and the group of trees were deeply (and I mean deeply) scraping the paint off both sides of the Jeep as she hung her head out looking toward the back of the Jeep saying, "I know I can do this!" I stood there saying, "Christine, no. This time you can't." She said, "I know I can do this." I started laughing and saying, "Oh my gosh Christine, this is a total Steve moment. You have crossed over into Steve's world. I would have never thought you were that kind of Aquarius!" I finally convinced her that the Jeep was about 6 inches wider on both sides to fit through that particular area. Funny, as we were packing up she said, "I still don't believe I can't make it through that area." I laughed and then spoke her language, "I know you don't but just go look at your Jeep."

Friday night was also met with an unexpected thunderstorm that would have flooded our campsite if we would have chose to sleep in tents. Once darkness hit, two mega-mondo double cab pickup trucks pulled up and sat in the rain waiting for the storm to blow over. Christine, Big Tree and I sat underneath the pop up tent drinking frosty beverages when a woman got out of the truck and walked over. Next thing ya' know, her three children were up in the tree house with Big Tree watching a movie on his portable DVD player. She had a 4 year old girl, a 7 year old son and believe it or not, a 3 week old daughter. Christine and I then helped the newly arrived campers set up in the storm. It was a crazy drenching experience. The woman did have her husband, dad and brother with her as well. After we helped them get set up and the storm broke, we all sat up late and admired our work talking about our great country and our appreciation for all the U.S. troops around the world. And the kids? They were still upstairs playing in the tree house and the baby was sound asleep.

We did everything we wanted to do on this trip and then some. Our fishing expedition was a blast! Needless to say, when we finally arrived back in St. Louis on Sunday night, all three of us had run out of clothes and we were absolutely filthy. I mean filthy! The only clothes each of us had left were boxer shorts and ratty t-shirts that didn't match the boxers. Even Big Tree was in his little Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle boxer shorts. We had mud and power bait all over us because we had already checked out of the tree house cabin on our way to go fishing. Power bait is this sparkly silly putty like substance that you can roll into a ball and put on your hook. It comes in different sparkly colors like green, red, gold and silver. It smells just like fish too. Yeah, use your imagination here because we were a mess! So when we pulled up to Karmen's house and she opened the door to greet Big Tree all she could do was laugh and say, "Oh my gosh!"

I do have more exciting adventures one after the other in the upcoming weeks. You know what they say, "You can't hit a moving target!" Over the next few weeks (through September) I will be writing to you from the desert out west, to the mountains back east. Stay tuned . . . in the meantime, I'll be uploading this site like crazy this week. It's time to take advantage of Mars in Gemini (me) and upload some new material to this site.

OUTBACK MOM

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Well, this weekend I'm off like a prom dress once again! oops! Was that a little too much goofball humor? Around 12:00 PM (CDT) today, Christine (Aquarius), her dog "Kylie, my grandson "Big Tree" (Taurus) and myself (Gemini) are going camping down at Lake of the Ozarks. This will be Big Tree's second camping trip ever, the first being when my daughter Karmen (Leo) and I took him camping down at Lake of the Ozarks last month.

This weekend I rented a real Tree House. No kidding, it's a small Tree House nestled right in the trees with stairs leading up to it. Big Tree is just going to get a royal kick out of it when he sees it. I can't wait! I can just see him running up and down the stairs disappearing into the Tree House constantly. This will be my first road trip with Big Tree without my daughter. She 'gets all Leo' on me about her little cubby because she knows I run around full-throttle and fully-loaded with energy. I keep telling her that he's FOUR and he needs his granny to run him ragged and ram-jam as much as we can into a day. You have to understand, Karmen is a 12th grader (Leo) and her husband Larry is a 10th grader (Cancer) so they tend to be much more serious than myself. As a 2nd grader (Gemini) I'm running on all four cylinders about 100 percent of the time being whoever I want to be, whenever I want, for as long as I want.

During the camping trip in July, she remembered that I am a very experienced, knowledgeable and serious camper. Okay, maybe not that serious. Adventurous is probably the correct word. Let's just say that I am "prepared for the outdoors." Interesting, did I tell you that the camping trip in July was the very first time I had ever used charcoal. I have always made my own fire and cooked over an open flame. I had never used charcoal to cook with in my Life! When I read the instructions and it said to just light it, I couldn't believe how it just lit up. I yelled, "THIS IS CHEATING!" I felt like a cave woman seeing fire for the first time because it was so easy. I still prefer to cook over an open flame. Now that Karmen has re-experienced camping with "Outback Mom," and I have taught Big Tree the rules of building and handling a fire, she's ready to turn him loose with me.

Since Big Tree (Taurus, 3rd grader) is getting more comfortable in his bird watching skills and knowledge, we're going to have a blast hiking and doing some bird watching. His binoculars are so cute and we've been logging all his bird sightings. I bought Big Tree his first compass so I'll be teaching him how to use it this weekend. We have already practiced with his emergency whistle that he will be wearing around his neck. Not that I plan on letting him out of my sight, it's just that he needs the rules of hiking right out of the gate. I do see myself as a naturalist and probably even more along the lines of a survivalist, so he gets the hard-core camping rules from day one. There are absolutely NO exceptions to the rules.

Christine and I haven't gotten to play "Throw the Baby" all summer, so that'll be fun too. We threw the baby a lot last summer and we just seemed to run out of time this summer. That's where we take Big Tree and throw him back and forth to each other in the water. Ahhhh, there's nothing like swimming in the lake and feeling fish bump up against your leg or try to take a nibble off your leg or butt. Dang that's a creepy experience! And speaking of fish, I CAN'T WAIT! The three of us (Christine, Big Tree and myself) do Love to fish and I know Karmen is just going nuts knowing that we will be fishing without her. Karmen does tend to get overly competitive at fishing. Maybe she'll get jealous enough to come with us.

You know the way my Life pretty much runs at this point. I will have my mega-mondo-ninja-commando-special-ops-special-forces-computer with me. I will be updating whatever I have to update in the mornings, answering e-mails and writing any natal charts in the morning as well. Your e-mails really do not bother me or throw me off my fun game because answering to this website every single day makes me more responsible and structured. This Gemini needs the structure! If I didn't have the website to keep me structured, I would be one whacky off the charts gal. Been there, done that - and I don't need another lesson in embracing structure. I get it and earned the T-shirt! Plus, I'm a North Node Virgo, I'm suppose to embrace structure and daily routine. It kind of reminds me of people being shocked that I am a practicing Catholic. I converted nearly 5 years ago. Again, this is another thing in my Life that gives me structure and strictly supports my belief system. Maybe other people do not need the structure, but this hippy chick needs it. And that makes me happy!

Have a great weekend and maybe I'll have a BIG FISH story ready to tell you on Monday. Maybe this Daily Message should be titled "Outback Granny" and not "Outback Mom." Ah . . there's my rockin' Swiss Army Knife.

AUGUST GENTLE REMINDERS

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Since this website grows with new visitors every single day, I feel the need to toss out a few gentle reminders.

1) All TYS e-Course students, feel free to call me anytime you have a question about your "Homework" assignments or when you want to share an epiphany with me that you received while working your assignment. These are typically quick 5 minute conversations to help you move along your spiritual progression path. The option of the 1-1/2 hour consult requires an additional fee and is necessary when we dive into the entire session all in one setting. Those who choose the 1-1/2 hour consult can still call me anytime with questions. I'm here!

2) My phone number is posted at the top of every single page on this website. I answer health questions without a fee simply because I think it is ridiculous to charge a fee for asking a health question. Questions should not take longer than 5 minutes to give you direction and guidance. If your health issues require me to review your entire health history, then a a health consult would obviously be necessary. If you e-mail me a long drawn out e-mail, I guarantee you that I will save it for another time until after I answer all other quicker e-mails. Please, just pick up the phone and call and let's get you taken care of quickly.

3) When I was in school I had a clinician (Dr. Hanicke) who never minded if we called his office to ask him about one of our patients. He always made himself available to the interns and would leave the patient room to talk with us on the phone at a moment's notice. His only requirement was that we not waste his time with apologizing for interrupting him. In other words, get to the point! He was busy treating patients but still did not mind us calling as long as we got to the point. He wanted us to just give him the background information and ask the question. This is why I always say, "If I answer the phone you have not interrupted me. If I do not answer, leave your name, number and TIME ZONE and I will call you back as soon as possible." If you live outside the U.S., you will need to call me back.

4) I can juggle phone calls much quicker than volleying several e-mails back and forth with you. By the time you e-mail me back a few hours later, I may have already answered another 300 e-mails and I may have completely forgotten what your original e-mail said. Then it is back to search for that e-mail. aaaarrrrgggghhhhh! And if I have to decipher text messaging style grammar, slang terminology, silly internet abbreviations and lazy spelling, I GUARANTEE YOU that I will simply move on and not address the e-mail. I feel that if you found me, then you are looking for a professional. So please lets make it easier on both of us with clear communication. You would be better off with a phone call than sending me an e-mail that looks like a text message.

5) And speaking of text messages . . I don't text. E-mailing from my Blackberry is one thing, texting makes me wonder why someone just doesn't pick up the phone and call. It's just too weird a style of communication for this Gemini.

6) Please do not add me to your forward list. I have to be very strict about this because of the amount of e-mails that I receive in one day. If you add me to your forward list, I will give my Aunt Jackie and Cousin Cynthia who live on the Cherokee Indian Reservation your e-mail address and they will fire forwarded e-mails at you like cannons. Then you'll really be sorry you ever sent me a forward. (winky wink)

7) It's best to read my contact button page before contacting me.

I AM A COPY-CAT!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

GREETINGS FROM ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI! Well I'm finally back home. Well, not really. Are you kidding? Did you forget who writes these Daily Messages? I still haven't managed to make it back to my place. The temptation to jump into a cab last night in Chicago between plane changes was nearly unbearable but I managed to overcome it. If it wasn't for the promised "Bumblebee Transformer" to my grandson I would probably be waking up in a downtown hotel in the Windy City. I Love standing on the beach barefoot along Lake Shore Drive, staring out on Lake Michigan flabbergasted that it isn't an Ocean.

Still, I haven't made it home yet. My son-in-law Larry picked me up from the airport last night and I stayed all night here at my daughter's house. Within a half hour of stepping off the plane, everyone was asleep and I was back online doing my thing and takin' care of business until the wee hours. It's sort of a whacky Life, I'll give you that, but someone has to do it, so why not me? I know it may appear as though I have absolutely no solid structure to my game but remember, there is always a method to my madness. I may be a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants Gemini, but if there is one thing that I know that is required of me in this Life, and that is "I" have to have some sort of daily routine, regimen and solid planning to my Life. Thank God, it is this website and way of Life that has provided me with solid structure.

See folks, this all goes back to my North Node in Virgo. Remember, the North Node is where you cannot fail. The North Node is "My Cup Runneth Over". It is not something you have done before, BUT IT IS something that will be easy for you IF you choose to accept this mission. You don't have to do it and a lot of people will not accept their North Node mission simply because they are either too lazy, too scared or some other excuse for which they will more than likely blame someone else. My North Node Virgo is all about whatever Virgo rules. Virgo happens to rule the 6th house of daily regimen, routine, health, fitness, work ethic and much more. So obviously I have to learn about these things by doing them. And IF I choose to accept this mission, it will come easy to me.

So, here goes this flighty-all-over the place butterfly Gemini accepting and doing everything that Virgo does. All I have to do is act, do and be a "Copy-Cat Virgo." In order to provide myself with daily routine and structure, I HAVE to work-out, I HAVE to eat-healthy, I HAVE to engage in daily routine, I HAVE to have a daily regimen, I HAVE involve myself in any career that Virgo rules (in my case, health). On this website that is why I have this "Daily" Message and I write "Daily" horoscopes. It is exactly why I change the Spiritual Progression Path "Daily" because it is "Daily" routine. I haven't updated the "Daily" Radio Broadcasts in a while but I have mounds of "Daily" broadcasts to upload this week in order to get caught up. Even on my "myspace" page I have changes that I make "Daily". All of this "Daily" stuff is a self-imposed structure so that I can ful-fill the mission of my North Node.

This is also why I make myself accessible "Daily" through my e-mail and phone lines. Folks, even when I am out of town, on vacation, camping, visiting family, etc., it is part of my mission (North Node Virgo) to continue a "Daily" plan or routine. I have to do it. The way I see it, I don't have a choice and it happens to be something that I Love. All of my friends and family know that when I disappear for a few minutes, I HAVE TO answer my e-mails. I HAVE to return my phone calls. I HAVE TO do my readings, health consults and write natal charts. It is part of my "Daily" routine. That is my Life and it is not a problem as long as I can fly around whenever I want as long as I have internet access. (winky wink) So please, do not feel bad about e-mailing or phoning when I am here, there and everywhere. Believe me, Ol' Dr. Standley will not be without fun, I guarantee you that! My friends and family know my game.

If you want direction and insight into how to work your North Node and be your own copy-cat, all you have to do is go to The Holistic Shop and choose the amount of time that you think you will need in order to have that conversation. Now go be a literal copy-cat of your North Node. Golly, if it weren't for this website giving me so much freedom, I wouldn't have this much structure. Funny how that works.

LET THE UNIVERSE DO THE REST

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

GREETINGS FROM COLUMBUS, OHIO! I'm still in Columbus having a fantastico time with Jeannie (Sagittarius) and today I turn into a pumpkin because I will be leaving for home (back to St. Louis) through Chicago later this evening. I was chatting with my daughter Karmen earlier this morning and she said, "So, are you going to get off the plane and stay in Chicago or are you going to come home?" I said, "Oh, you think you know me so well." And she does! After I talked with my grandson "Big Tree" who said he was waiting for me to get back so that I could take him to get the "Bumblebee Transformer" . . it pretty much solidified my landing in St. Louis tonight.

We spent the entire weekend weeding, mowing, planting, trimming, hedging, hoeing, clipping, digging and wacking nearly every square inch of her wooded acre. Folks, I absolutely Love to get "earth dirty" and I haven't been that "earth dirty" since sitting in mud holes when I was kid with my friends. Then we ended the day with a beautiful fire and a few ice cold frosty beverages. (winky wink) It's camping without camping! And I'm still ready for more! This morning after I posted the Daily Horoscopes we went for a two-hour hike with her neighbor Ron and his Golden Retriever "Ashley". By the time Ashley finished rolling around in the mud holes, she looked like a Chocolate Lab. Ah, the sites, sounds and smells of Mother Earth!

Folks, whatever you Love to do, I pray that you chase down that experience as often as you can, every single day. Don't wait for your experiences to come to you because you may be waiting a long time. You have to put some action into your imagination(s) in order to create the Life you desire. I can't imagine God plunking down something wonderful in my lap if I was dis-interested. Heck, would you give something wonderful to your child if they seemed dis-interested in it? That wouldn't even make sense. Folks, if you show interest in your own Life, you better believe the Universe will be more likely to respond because the Universe seeks to balance itself out. It is the Universal Law of Reciprocity. It's Algebra baby! Whatever happens on one side of the equation, has to be done to the other side of the equation. Life is an algebraic equation and it really is that simple. If you want something strong enough, then fulfill your side of the equation and let the Universe do the rest.

FOLLOWING THE DING!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

GREETINGS FROM COLUMBUS, OHIO! Well folks I'm just flying by the seat of my pants once again because I followed THE DING! Call it intuition, call it a DLG (Download from God) or call it THE DING. I ended up in Columbus, Ohio merely by following THE DING! I follow THE DING when I hear it and THE DING comes to me through Southwest Airlines. Okay, I know this is a major plug for Southwest Airlines but as I always say, "If Southwest doesn't fly there, then I don't go there!" Besides, when I followed THE DING it only cost me $15.00 each way from St. Louis to Columbus. Crazy huh? THE DING is software that you download from the Southwest Airlines website that alerts you to major cheap deals in the air. In other words, you can be online and all the sudden you hear THE DING! So you click on the icon that is on your desktop and then BOOM it shows you deals that no one else gets to see. Only DING people get to experience it.

So there I was back in June clicking my DING icon when I heard THE DING and it said, "Columbus Ohio $15.00." Well at $15.00 you can't afford not to go. You have it . . well, at least I have to. So I immediately called Jeannie (Sagittarius), my friend in Columbus and made arrangements for this weekend. So now Jeannie and I "get to" figure out what this is all about. I was telling Jeannie this morning that even though we are opposing signs we can get more work accomplished together than separate because we are the balance, not the opposition as most people think. Why choose to look at opposing signs as opposition. That's so negative and certainly not the way my brain thinks and neither does a Sagittarius.

Jeannie has this wonderful unique home saturated with doors that feels like windows nestled at the edge of the woods and she is ALWAYS doing home remodeling projects. I've been so excited to come here because Jeannie has a way of putting me to work in the most unusual ways. Last time I was here with "H" (Henrietta, the Virgo) we built a retaining wall with huge bricks just below her deck. Hmmmmmmmmm, it is interesting that this weekend starts off with the Moon in Cancer (home and family) and we are preparing to go outside and work in the yard all afternoon and sweat like men. Incidentally, I will be back later to write today's Natal Charts that were ordered and answer any e-mails.

All I'm saying folks is follow THE DING (your intuition) when you hear it, in whatever form it arrives. Being that I live my Life deliberately and purposefully, I set myself up to hear THE DING and here I am in Columbus, Ohio. Just try to keep up with me over the next several months because I will be all over this wonderful country from mountains to deserts. Heck, one day there was a trip going to Detroit for $25! Well being the flighty Gemini that I am . . I had to jump on that fare and go to Detroit for the day and come back that night. In other words, I flew to Detroit for lunch and came right back home. Folks, whatever works for you that stimulates your Life to wonderful action, just GO FOR IT! One thing I won't be saying in my old age is . . . "I wish I woulda . . . " I'm glad I followed THE DING!

MOVE TO WHERE YOU NEED TO BE

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Since Monday I have been over here at my daughter Karmen's house pulling granny duty. It always works out perfectly with my adventurous butterfly schedule and her husband Larry's business travel. When I'm out of town working or playing it is typically on the weekends. And when Larry travels for work, it is always during the week. So I come over and fill in the gaps and take my grandson Big Tree back and forth to school. Then after school he cons me into going to Wal-Mart for yet ANOTHER transformer. It's tough to pass up a four-year little voice saying, "Pleeeeaaaaseeee, I'll eat all my dinner." He had me at, "Pl...."

Since last weekend was the mega-mondo fundraiser, I crashed at a downtown hotel with the majority of the group just two blocks away from the festivities and then came home long enough Monday to do laundry, pack my bags and head to Karmen's until today. At the same time, Larry went out of town on business Monday and arrived home last night and this afternoon I am on a plane headed to Columbus, Ohio. As usual, where I go, so goes the mega-mondo-ninja-commando-special-ops-special-forces computer. I'm always amazed how this travel juggling between Larry and I works out and Karmen and Big Tree are never thrown off their game.

I suppose what makes this juggling so easy for us is that we know it can all be worked out. We never freak when Larry suddenly has to be in Kentucky in two days. Both Karmen and I just say, "Okay" and then we handle it. It reminds me of that cool brick wall in Harry Potter where the bricks move to the exact place they need to be so that the magical passage will open to Diagon Alley. That's what we do . . we just move to where we need to be. Or as Wayne Gretzky always said, "I skate to where the puck is going to be." That's what we do.

In chatting with so many people online and on the phone every day I hear all too often the over-reaction to Life's simple challenges. Folks, all I'm saying is that if you cannot handle anything small, how in the world will you be able to handle anything big including relationships and money? . . . Now, go move to where you need to be.

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH VENUS?
Love, Beauty and Relationships

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Many are going to be feeling a huge shift with regard to Love and relationships. This is due to the fact that Venus has been retrograde in nit-picky and perfectionistic Virgo since July 27, 2007 and will remain retrograde until September 8, 2007. On top of that, Venus has gone retrograde all the way back to 00 degrees and tonight it will cross over from Virgo into Leo tonight at precisely 9:35 PM EDT. So we will all feel a shift in our emotions with regard to Love and relationships through September 8, 2007 at 12:10 PM EDT. Again folks, this is NOT the time to begin a new relationship. By the way, I will be updating your monthly Venus Opporunity tonight.

Venus puts us all in this funky mood because Venus is being sandwiched right smack dab between Saturn and the South Node until August 13, 2007. That's like being crushed and in tears by two energies that drives us bonkers. Remember the South Node is THE DRAIN and Saturn likes to discipline us and hold us responsible. Folks, when it comes to Love and relationships, take a chill pill and just relax. Easier said that done, I know but do your best because retrograde Venus can really make you a bit freaky and over-emotional when it comes to Love. Thank God I have that cold Capricorn Moon that keeps me sane and emotionally sober when everyone else is losing sleep over Love and relationships. The best advice I can give you is keep yourself busy. I mean busy busy busy! Dump as much energy as you can into improving your physical, emotional and spiritual character so that you can be ready for Love when this retrograde motion lightens up and moves on.

Are You Ready To Rumble?

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

First, thank you all for taking it easy on me this weekend as far as e-mails and phone calls are concerned while I was at the fundraiser. We had an absolute insane time but if I hear Beer Barrel Polka, Too Fat Polka, Corn Cob Polka or Woodpecker Polka one more time I may just lose my mind. I'm even waking up hearing polka tunes now. I will probably have to detox my system after having three days of festival food and party drink but I am pretty much on fire right now and rarin' to go! I am back in the saddle and popping off those e-mails right and left. Also, as far as I know I have returned all phone calls. If I happened to have missed your call, just ring me again. As I always say, "If I answer you have not interrupted me. If I don't answer, leave your name and number AND YOUR TIME ZONE and I will call you back in a jiffy!"

Keep in mind that tonight at 9:36 PM EDT Jupiter returns to its normal motion and the flood gates open up once again. Please look at your Natal Chart and note which house Sagittarius rules in your Natal Chart so that you will know where the influence will be for you personally. If you do not have a Natal Chart then just read the Yearly Horoscope for your sign for the "in general" interpretation of your Jupiter Opportunity. Keep in mind that Jupiter is the abundant, extra blessings and expansive planet. Most astrologers refer to Jupiter as the lucky planet but since I believe in God and I DO NOT believe in "luck," I prefer to see this planet as "extra blessings."

Don't worry my little chickadees, I will complete your Weekly Horscopes tonight and have them posted. Also, today I have already added November 2007 and December 2007 to the Void of Course Calendar page and made the page a bit easier to navigate. This is so you can plan ahead with respect to the Scorpio Moon or the Aries Moon. Remember, no shopping or surgeries during a Scorpio Moon and always begin something NEW! under an Aries Moon. Got it?!? Let's see . . what else . . Oh, tomorrow your Mars Opportunity updates under your Monthly Horoscope.

Folks, I am really going to be pushing myself to expand this website where there are incomplete pages during these last five months of Jupiter in Sagittarius since it will be moving through my personal Natal Chart 6th house of work ethic and health. I do claim to be an "opportunist," so I fully plan on taking advantage of the opportunities that Jupiter brings. How about a little "I scratch your back and you scratch mine during this time?" Meaning, I'll work like I'm out of control and you share my website with everyone in your address book. How about it? ARE YOU READY TO R-U-M-B-L-E?!?!

WEEKEND UPDATE

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Folks, I am preparing to enter the busiest weekend of my year. The 20 plus group of friends that I run with are deeply involved in fund-raising. We have several big fund-raising efforts every year and this one happens to be our biggest fund-raising weekend of the year. Basically, we raise money and give it to St. Louis area city schools. Our goal this weekend is $20,000!!! If you live in the St. Louis area, come on down to St. Louis Strassenfest, which is an annual street festival celebrating German heritage and culture. Our tent is easy to find because it is the gargantuan tent right across from City Hall in downtown St. Louis on Market Street just a few blocks down from Busch Stadium. Just look for the mega-mondo tent with two peaks (points) across from the main stage. And how do we raise the money? We have a massive wine and beer garden.

We began set up yesterday afternoon (Thursday) until late last night. From this moment and throughout the weekend it's up early and up late until Sunday night when we break it all down. It's a lose 10 pounds in 3 days type of weekend from the blood, sweat and tears. We arrive about 7:00 AM and leave about 12:00 AM for three days straight. If you live in the St. Louis area we would Love to have you join us and support our cause. (winky wink) I'll be there non-stop with the rest of the gang since we are worker-bees and have no sense when to stop. Ummmmm . . we have a little fun too.

As far as charting, readings or consults, I will not be writing any natal charts, doing any readings or health consults until Monday the 6th. I will also return all phone calls on Monday the 6th. (oooh, Jupiter leaves its retrograde motion on Monday.) Your daily horoscopes will not be updated this weekend. I thought I would have time but there just won't be anytime to sit down and do this. In the meantime, remember to check your monthly horoscope for your Mercury Opportunity on Saturday because I will be updating the monthly horoscope Saturday morning. I cannot promise that the weekly horoscope will be updated Saturday but don't count me out yet. Ya' just never know about me. Have a great weekend and look me up if you can. Remember, it's the mega-mondo tent with two peaks across from the main stage.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO
WITH YOUR LIFE?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

I have some fairly bizarre fantasies about what I want to do with my Life and one of them is to be a stand-up comic. I know I could pull off a successful routine on "Last Comic Standing". Crazy huh? I enjoy laughing so much that I purposefully and deliberately seek out a Good time just so that I can laugh. I Love goofy, theatrical and outrageous behavior. I'm always looking for the laugh. Always! If you have read my bio, then you know that I was actually a professional clown at one time, which were some pretty big shoes to fill. (winky wink) In my early 20's I had a children's entertainment company and had 16 entertainers working for me from mimes, clowns and magicians to ventriloquists, stilt walkers and caricature artists. At the same time I had a "tongue in cheek" gag gift business that revolved around cliche's. We actually sent dead roses and horse manure to people. You can only imagine the cliche' on the gift card. OUTRAGEOUS I tell you! Or we would arrive at someone's work with a bouquet of balloons and then pop them with a hat pin while delivering a nice sarcastic message with a straight face for an over-the-hill birthday. It was hilarious.

I also have a fantasy about creating my own line of outrageously hilarious greeting cards or calendars. My favorite greeting card of all time is one that had two hippos standing face to face. Each hippo had a bucket of paint and a paint brush. And each hippo had spots all over it. On the inside of the card it said, "I'll never forget the day we first spotted each other." Is that too funny! I LOVE THAT CARD and I know that I could write really cool and funny cards too. Some women want to meet Brad Pitt. Not me, I want to meet Gary Larson, the creator of "The Far Side" or Bobby and Peter Farrelly who directed the movie, "There's Something About Mary." I Love an outrageous, warped and surreal sense of humor. Who doesn't want to experience a rip roarin' laugh? And I Love men who can make me laugh because I'm definitely a woman who can take a joke. My second husband was Polish and he would wake up in the morning and crank up the polka music and dance. That man was 14 years older than me and he would polka dance on the bed until I woke up. Being that I am a morning person, I woke up every single morning laughing my guts out! We were so busy flying over the Moon, we never could take anything serious as a couple, but we sure had fun!

"Whatever you should be doing with your Life,
you've been doing it your whole Life."
-- Dr. Loretta Standley

I also fantasize about writing funny commericals or being a writer for a TV comedy show or screenwriter for a comedy movie. I just know I would be awesome at it because the laugh is in what is literal. It's always in being literal. The US Bank commercial is hilariously literal where the woman walks in the bank and asks for a low interest rate loan. The man says, "How does 18.9 percent sound?" The woman says, "Can you go any lower?" So the man says in a much lower voice, "How does 18.9 percent sound?" The trick to being a funny clown was taking everything literally. If a kid said, "Blow me up a balloon." I would make an explosion noise and then throw the balloon up in the air. Then the kid would laugh and say, "No! Blow it up with your mouth." So I would hold it in front of my mouth and blow on it. Entirely frustrated but still laughing the kid would say, "NO! PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH!" Then I would put the entire balloon in my mouth. You get the picture.

Yeah, I Love the literal, the surreal and the warped sense of humor. My ex-boyfriend use to make fun of how big my head is. He would say, "Loretta your head is so big. I could tie a string to your head and put you in the Macy's Day Parade." I thought that was so funny, especially when he would call me "Macy's Day Parade Balloon Head." My daughter Karmen and son-in-law Larry always make fun of my big head. Well Karmen has the tiniest hands, so the other day I said to her, "Geez, your hands are tiny. I don't see how you can hold anything with those tiny hands." Then she says to me, "Well I don't see how you can get out of the car with that big giant head!" We laughed so hard and Big Tree (my grandson) was in the back seat laughing at his granny's big giant head. Gees I Love a Good laugh.

I firmly believe that whatever you should be doing with your Life, you've been doing it your whole Life. I have been an incredibly optimistic person my entire Life and I can always seen the Good in anything and everything. I see the silver lining and I see the Light at the end of the tunnel. I don't dwell on the past because I tend to forget the past even happened. It's a gift! And I firmly believe that nothing happens to us for our lowest bad, because that doesn't even make sense. Everything has to happen for our Highest Good. I suppose since I am such an optimistic person and I can see the humor and bright side in everything, then in a round-about way I am using my optimism through this website to chat with you every day so that you can see the optimism in your Life too. It's all Good folks, it really is. And who knows, maybe one day you will be driving along and see me sitting on my suitcase on the side of the road with a cardboard sign saying, "Hollywood or Bust!"

ASTROLOGICAL EDISON

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

My air conditioning is perfect-a-mundo now. Yippee! Things ended up getting progressively worse yesterday as all my electric blew and my internet went out for a few hours. YES, I paid my bill. It ended up being the main breaker outside on my meter that was fried. I had been running on half electrical juice for God knows how long. How exciting that I am now running full juice! It will be interesting to see how this manifests on a physical level being that I depend on electricity for my entire career. And I do have Uranus, which rules electricity and technology in my 2nd house of money, which is another reason why I deliberately use electricity and technology in this 2nd house. Thank God it trines (easy and effortless) my 10th house of career. Oh yeah baby, I use that electricity and technology for my career but just as Uranus so often does . . it brings sudden changes in the blink of an eye.

And speaking of electricity, "Astrological Edison" (below) was sent to me by my friend "H" (Henrietta) the Virgo out in Los Angeles, California. It was just way too accurate and funny so I had to share it with you. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO RENEE, my Leo friend and hip-hop dancer out in San Diego, California!

ASTROLOGICAL EDISON

How many members of your astrological sign does it take to change a light bulb?

Aries: Just one. You want to make something of it?

Taurus: One, but just "try" to convince them that the burned-out bulb is useless and should be thrown away.

Gemini: Two, but the job never gets done - they just keep arguing about who is supposed to do it and how it's supposed to be done!

Cancer: Just one. But it takes a therapist three years to help them through the grief process.

Leo: Leos don't change light bulbs, although sometimes their agent will get a Virgo to do the job for them while they're out.

Virgo: Approximately 1.0000000 with an error of +/- 1 millionth.

Libra: Er, two. Or maybe one. No - on second thought, make that two. Is that okay with you?

Scorpio: That information is strictly secret and shared only with the Enlightened Ones in the Star Chamber of the Ancient Hierarchical Order.

Sagittarius: The sun is shining, the day is young and we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid light bulb?

Capricorn: I don't waste my time with these childish jokes!

Aquarius: Well, you have to remember that everything is energy, so...

Pisces: Lightbulb? What lightbulb?
