NEW MOON IN ARIES COMING UP

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

HEAD'S UP THIS COMING WEEKEND This coming weekend could not be a better time to create a NEW BEGINNING for yourself. Not only will the Moon be in Aries, which represents new beginnings, but on Sunday the Aries Moon will be a NEW MOON! It's awesome! It's doubly-wonderful. There will only be two planets retrograde (Saturn and Pluto). Now on Sunday during the New Moon, the Moon will be void of course from 11:01 AM EDT until 9:19 PM EDT. Make a note of that in your time zone and just keep it in mind because you have the morning and late evening hours to begin something NEW! During the Aries Moon is a wonderful starting period or during the New Moon in Aries.

Folks, anything you can think of to give yourself a NEW BEGINNING would be perfect at this time. It's even a great time to end something to give yourself a new beginning. That might include quitting a job, putting an end to a bad relationship or extinguishing a bad habit. The chances of success are very powerful under this Aries Moon or the New Moon in Aries.

Take note of the gray box on your daily horoscope page because all of the retrograde planets for the rest of the year are listed. I will be writing more on Pluto Retrograde because it will go retrograde on Wednesday, April 2, 2008. I also have the Void of Course Moon Calendar updated through August 2008. There is a link for you to download the calendar so you can carry it with you.

Mercury and Venus will be moving into Aries this week and all I can say is THANK YOU GOD! All of those Pisces planets were very difficult for me over this past month and were just a complete drain to me. All of those Pisces planets just sucked out my creativity and left me tired most of the time. Remember, I have a South Node Pisces. It really was just about all I could take. I think next year during all the Pisces planets I will just take off work and lay on a beach somewhere since Pisces rules the Ocean and I'll just let it feed my intuition. I should've went back to Florida to visit my friend Amy (Pisces) and lay on the beach during all that Pisces energy. She and I talked about it but I don't know why I didn't do it. Remember two years ago in March when I went to Florida to see Amy and a bird pooped on my arm when I tried to go into the Ocean? And speaking of intuition, the Pisces planets did serve me well in building my intuition as I discovered a new way for me to tap the Universe and get rock solid answers. While Pisces energy is fantastic for my intuition, having three Grand Trines in the water signs, it still left me drained. I suppose I shouldn't complain since I really did have a wonderful Pisces outcome, it was just tiring. Still, I cannot wait for Mercury and Venus to move into Aries this week. Rah-hooooooooooooooooooo!

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Last night I spent the night at my sister Cis' house (Leo) and had a great time goofing off and just being silly sisters. We went to dinner, stayed up late, painted our nails, ate way too much and watched 'Twilight Zone' reruns. Then about 1:30 in the morning we decided to go to the store and ended up running into our brother Jerry (Sagittarius). What a crazy night that turned out to be. In the midst of all that craziness, Cis' son Joe (Cancer) sends her a text and then she talks to him on the phone. Gosh doesn't anyone in my family sleep? Further, it was a weeknight! Usually it's my daughter Karmen (Leo) who calls at nutty hours and wonders what I'm doing.

I come from a very spirited family where we all pretty much have a loud and goofey sense of humor. There are six siblings where one is just as theatrical and animated as the next and our children can be just as silly. On any given day I probably talk to 'at least' four family members, which may include a parent, sibling, aunt, cousin, my daughter, grandson or son-in-law. Then again, I am a Cancer Rising with Mercury (communication) in Cancer (home and family). I do Love and appreciate my family and they mean everything to me. I just Love my family! In fact, I'm still at Cis' house and will spend another night goofing off and telling tales tonight.

This morning, while I was in my family joy, I found out a friend was in their family sorrow. I received word from my friend Christine (Aquarius) that a mutual friend's 19 year-old son passed on to be with God after a very long battle with cancer. The pain this family is going through is beyond words. I ask you to please keep the SLB family in your prayers through this difficult time. Folks, I know family can be tough to handle under the many circumstances that you may be dealing with at this very moment, but there is no time like the present to spend with a family member. There is no time like the present to reach out and connect with a family member who may need you. There is no time like the present to reconcile with a family member that may be alone, lost, cast-out or separated from the pack. What could be more important than your family? Through all the trials and tribulations that all of us families will experience in this Lifetime, it really only takes one person to bring the family back up again. That person can be you. Think about it.

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

FUNKY TOWN

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

First -- you may notice that I have added the Void of Course Moon Calendar for August 2008. Also every single month just above the calendar is a link for you to download the Void of Course Moon Calendar so you can carry it with you.

Lately it seems many people have been in what I call 'funky town'. This is when you might fall into a state of helplessness, self-pity and somewhat of a depressed state of mind. It's a sulking, whining and complaining mentality that can be hard to shake and a hole that can be a challenge to crawl out. I believe it is Mars (aggression) in Cancer (home and family) shaking up your biologic foundation because Cancer rules home and family.

Cancer describes your roots, your heritage and your private life. Cancer also rules land, property, residences, domestic affairs, psychological foundations, biological inheritance and place of abode. Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most. For instance -- I am motivated by my 2nd house because my Natal Mars is in Leo in this 2nd house. This Mars placement in Leo is the absolute strongest placement for Mars. It is the amount of power and assertion that boxers want.

Errrkkk! But wait! Right now Mars is in Cancer transiting (moving through) the house in your Natal Chart that is ruled by Cancer. Check your Natal Chart and see which house is ruled by Cancer. Depending on the degree of the house ruled by Cancer in your Natal Chart this will tell which house Mars is transiting. Since Mars is in Cancer at 08 46" right now, then this means Mars is transiting (moving through) the house where Cancer would be 8 degrees.

FOR EXAMPLE-- If your 9th house is ruled by Cancer at 15 degrees, then obviously Mars will not be moving through the 9th house. It has to be moving through the 8th house because the first 14 degrees has to be somewhere. Right? So the first 14 degrees of your Cancer would be in the house before the 9th house, which is the 8th house. When Mars in Cancer reaches 15 degrees, then it would make it into your 9th house.

Grab your charts folks and look at the house in your Natal Chart that is ruled by Cancer. Look at the degrees and make a mental note that Mars is in Cancer at 08 46". If your Cancer house cusp is 3 degrees, then obviously Mars will be in that house since it is at 8 degrees right now. You can follow all of the planets that are transiting your Natal Chart by looking at the blue box in every daily horoscope and tracking them in your chart.

I have a gift for you! Under each daily horoscope there is a blue box that says, "Where the planets are right now" and I have made notations on each 'planet in a sign' to let you know how long that planet will stay in that sign. In this way you can track the planet in your own Natal Chart.

In the meantime, when you sink into a funk, you must push some energy. You must get up and move the furniture around, pick things up off the floor and shred old paperwork. Unstick those pictures frames that are stuck to the wall by giving them a gentle lift off the wall. Move items on the countertops and unstick the things sitting on your desk. Move your computer and then move it back. This stuck energy in your biologic foundation can pull you under and you must use your Cancer the crab pinchers to dig yourself out. You must push the energy in order for something to change. Many times when I want bigger, better and more, then I will push and push hard. I always receive change nearly immediately or within 24 hours. You may have noticed my push (umpf) by just having the daily horoscopes posted early and prepared to post through this coming Monday. Sitting in the same energy will not serve you. You must push and use this Mars 'umpf' to shake up your biologic foundation in a Good way rather than sit in a funk and complain about what you don't have. Now move it!

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

PLANETARY ASPECTS

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Yesterday a Leo called me wondering what was up with the energy of the day because everything was proving to be a challenge. I reminded the Leo that the Moon was in Scorpio and whenever the Moon is in Scorpio or Taurus, then it will be a challenging day for Leo because they are the two signs that square Leo. A square is a challenge. A square results when there are two signs between you and another sign. So for Leo, Gemini and Cancer separate Leo from the Taurus. It is also Virgo and Libra that separate Leo from Scorpio. So there you have it . . . Taurus and Scorpio are squaring signs to Leo. Interestingly enough the two squaring signs will always be opposite of each other. This can create some very challenging energy if you throw a Leo, Scorpio and Taurus into a room. You can put a cherry on top of this if you throw in an Aquarius. OUCHY! Leo and Aquarius are opposites, Scorpio and Taurus are opposites and they all SQUARE EACH OTHER! It's all the perfect recipe for a Grand Square, which is basically four signs squaring each other all from a different element (air, earth, fire and water).

Then again -- whenever a sun sign is opposite you, that does not necessarily mean the energy has to be opposition, as in a tug-of-war. Oppositions can prove to be the perfect balance when the energy is channeled loving, intelligently and appropriately. Oppositions remind me of the see-saw on the playground. The perfect balance of up and down, to and fro, ebb and flow, give and receive. It should be an even trade of energy as long as no one suddenly jumps off the see-saw and injures the other person. OUCHY!

A trine is easy and effortless energy, which of course is Good for you and creates opportunity. This is when there are three signs that separate you from another sign. It's easy to remember this one because a trine is always the same element as you. There are four elements - air, earth, fire and water. The air signs are - Aquarius, Gemini and Libra so they are trine each other. The earth signs are - Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo so they are trine each other. The fire signs are - Aries, Leo and Sagittarius so they are trine each other. And the water signs are - Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio so they are trine each other. EASY PEASY!

A sextile is when there is only one sign between you and another sign, which creates ease and cooperation only not as much as the trine but it's still ease no matter how you slice it baby! That's probably why I just Love those fire signs of Aries and Leo because Taurus separates me (a Gemini) from Aries . . and Cancer separates me (a Gemini) from Leo. So Aries and Leo are sextile Gemini. See how this works. EASY PEASY again!

This can help you understand the energy in some of your relationships. There are plenty of people who are married to their square or opposition. Some of those marriages are just plain miserable and then there are those who choose to respect and enjoy their differences. It goes without saying that it is the challenges in Life that make us a better person IF that is what we choose. Ah . . Good ol' astrology always makes room for our God-given free will. You always get to choose how you will act and react to any given aspect.

THE BICKERSONS!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

One day I was sitting at my desk working when I glanced out the window and saw two people struggling with a large wooden cabinet on a dolly cart. After the two heads popped up from behind the huge cabinet I noticed it was a new neighbor who had just moved into the building that I had met several days earlier. It appeared her boyfriend was still helping her move in and get settled. It took just a moment for it to register that they would need someone to hold the door open so I jumped up and went to the front door of the building.

I'm a person that enjoys moving furniture around. In fact, I probably move my furniture around once every two months. I measure from all directions and angles so that everything is just right and Feng Shui approved. So as the cabinet was rolling nearer to the front door and seeing that they would have to navigate up a step through the door and then up five stairs through another door I said, "Did you measure to make certain it would clear the angle as you tilt it to go up the stairs and clear the railing?" The girl rolled her eyes, pointed toward her boyfriend and said, "NO!" Now folks, I had a dose of her attitude toward her boyfriend the day she moved in and a dose of his willingness to take it. I could feel the words forming in my mouth already. Then I heard a DLG (Download from God) say, "If you are going to say something, then leave them with something to think about." It's a Good thing God keeps me in check because my sassy spirit wanted to ask if she didn't know how to use a tape measure.

As I stood behind the door it was obvious neither of them had much experience moving furniture and they were quickly losing their temper with one another. Gees, how were these two going to handle something bigger in Life if they couldn't handle a big cabinet!?! She squealed, "OW, my foot!" as if he had pushed the cabinet onto her foot purposefully. Then he responded in a cowering tone saying, "Sorry." Her reaction pretty much said she didn't believe the apology and that he probably did it on purpose. There was absolutely no way I was going to voluntarily stand there one more minute and have all of this childish bickering going into my cells. So I said in a very firm yet gentle tone, "Alright folks! I am volunteering to help you but I will not voluntarily stand here and listen to you bruise each other with words. Your emotions are a choice, if cannot control them, I'm going back inside." With that both of them fell completely silent.

Being that I enjoy moving furniture I asked the boyfriend if he had a blanket. Both of their faces lit up and smiled as he turned to go back to the truck and retrieve the longest tarp I have ever seen. I asked the girl to hold the door as we tilted the cabinet on the tarp. I stood at the top of the five stairs, he stood at the bottom and within 20 seconds we had that huge cabinet standing upright in the hallway. In another 10 seconds we slid it in front of her front door. I'm certain it didn't take more than 30 seconds.

Folks, the obstacles you are confronted with in your relationships are typically clouded with uncontrolled emotions. Once you control your emotions then you can see the problem and come up with a solution and then the angels will start seeing "Hallelujah" again. (winky wink) It's imperative to snap yourself out of an emotional experience as quickly as you can before it turns into a train wreck. Many times we whirl around in emotions too long until they fester and start stinking. Emotions are really just chemical reactions. That's all they are! Any doctor or scientist will tell you that because that's exactly what emotions are . . they are chemical reactions that last about six seconds and it is your choice how far past those chemical reactions you will stand in that emotional experience. You can count to ten or count to six if you want but you need to take a few seconds to think before you pop off on someone you Love because emotions can be controlled. When someone tells me that they couldn't help themselves then I say, "Yes you could, you just chose not to." Suffice it to say, if you are willing to pop off at a Loved one in public or in front a perfect stranger over something minor, the next question is . . what must you be like at home when no one else is listening or watching?

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Rah-hooooo! I'm finally ahead of 'the game' again. Your Sunday daily horoscopes are already posted. Now folks, I have no problem asking for your assistance in sharing my website with other people. This is VERY important and I'll tell you why. There is a very Good reason why I don't have advertising and pop-ups splattered all over this website. It is because I simply and purely rely on word of mouth to generate traffic on this website. I ALWAYS need you to help me spread the word about this website, otherwise I would have to rely on advertising in order to generate more traffic. You have no idea how important you are to me in generating traffic. This website is a highly ranked site but it takes you to keep me ranked in the top 100,000 sites out of 156 million domain names. You are VERY important to me and my gratitude quite honestly is overflowing.

I can tell you that it would be much much much much easier on me if I just had banners slathered all over this site generating my traffic rather than doing it the way that I choose, which is relying on word of mouth. I want people to come to my site because you told them how great it is! There is nothing like 'word of mouth' advertising. That's how great I want this site! There is loads of information on this website that is free and what I want from you in return is free advertising. I have no problem saying it. Ask for what you want Loretta! I want a give/give relationship with you because I just don't believe in give/take relationships. If someone is giving, then someone is taking. Right? And since when did a give/take relationship feel Good? So folks, when you share this website with others, you will not believe the amount of energy it feeds to my spirit and gets my motor running. I get happier and want to do more for you. The more you share this site with others, the more I want to give back to you . . the more I want to create for you . . the more I want to stay up late for you . . the more I want to post early horoscopes for you . . the more I want to hear from you. I completely dig on being rockin' busy because I can easily become a bored Gemini, toss caution to the wind and then run goof off and play when I could be posting early.

ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME
Part II

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

So many of you are on top of your game, busy connecting the links with all of roads you have traveled. And speaking of games, the Sun moved into Aries (the game player) earlier this morning at 1:37 AM EDT. Spring has sprung with Spring Equinox and the Sun in Aries represents new beginnings. This is incredibly spirited energy and is determined to finish the race FIRST! Aries has to be first and they will even elbow you out of the way to be first. They are fierce competitors and right now, we all get a taste of Aries somewhere in our chart.

Have you ever traveled a road (metaphorically speaking) and then contemplated all of the links that got you to the place that you needed to be. Last year I wrote you a Daily Message about the time while I was in school that I was bumped from a flight but was given a free ticket to anywhere in the U.S. When I received the ticket (voucher) I wondered at the time where it would take me. An opportunity arose several months later where I was offered an externship in Neuro-Radiology at none other than the teaching hospital of Harvard University, which is Massachusettes General Hospital. If you didn't read that Daily Message, guess how a single mom, in college with absolutely no extra money made it to Boston to take advantage of that opportunity. Yes . . the ticket! And I had a place to stay with an old friend. What a wonderful road that was and the links to get me there were nothing short of Divine Perfect Timing (DPT). It's what was suppose to happen.

I'm certain you all have similar stories of these wonderful links along your traveled road that get you from the place you are now to the place that you need to be in order to fulfill your purpose. What I would like to see happen during these magical moments in your Life is that you are awesomely grateful but not at all surprised by it simply because you had the Trust and Faith that it was already so . . . and that God is shifting the Universe just for you in order to make it all fall right into perfect place. And that's what it's suppose to look like. I typically respond to these links along my path by saying, "Yes, thank You! It's what was supposed to happen. Thank You!"

During the Sun in Aries this is the perfect time to play games with the links in your path. Everyone gets the benefit of the game. One link should lead you to the next link. Track some of these wonderful experiences and see where they brought you. For instance, write down the name of a former relationship or job and start connecting the dots. Maybe this relationship or job inspired you to get involved in a certain career or organization. Maybe that person or job introduced you to another person. Maybe that career or person led to a different relationship. And then that relationship led to a divorce that had a settlement. And maybe that settlement put you in a certain position that led you to something else. Take any situation that you may still have question marks about and write down the name of that situation and start connecting the links. You can do this with several scenarios and you will be able to see on paper how they all led back to you and what you are doing right now. Remember, all roads lead to Rome. It's all for your benefit. It's always about you. Even this website is about you.

How many times have I told you that this website is a game? I have deliberately created it like a puzzle because of my own chart. This website puzzle should cause you to question what is going on in your Life and put the pieces together in your own puzzle. Now run along my little chickadees and connect the links in some of these 'wonderful' and sometimes 'non-so-wonderful' experiences along the roads that you have traveled. And remember, the Sun in Aries brings a time of NEW beginnings and all roads lead to Rome.

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

ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

You may have heard the phrase, "All roads lead to Rome." Well at one time, Rome was the center of the Universe (winky wink) so all roads actually did lead to Rome with over 53,000 miles of paved road from the center and radiating out. While these roads did not stand the test of time, the phrase certainly did. Today the phrase means there are many ways of doing something and arriving at the same place. Of course, during the Roman Empire all roads leading to Rome was more about doing things the Roman way. Well folks, times have changed! After all, these 53,000 miles of paved road had over 370 links connecting them. Woo Wee, I just Love this type of mind wrestle as many of you may already see where I am going with this. Hmmmmmmm . . 53,000 miles of paved road had over 370 links connecting them. That's a lot of choice and opportunity!

It's no secret that I embrace and enjoy a variety of holistic, spiritual and metaphysical thought without feeling the need for approval by a human being. It's fairly obvious just by tapping around this site that I will go deep into the realm of possibility through just about any means that might serve you and then tie it into something else in your Life. After all, all roads do lead to Rome, if in fact you are searching for it. Rome is whatever Rome represents to you. This might be God, a relationship, your mission in Life, your personal finances or wherever your spiritual progression path may take you. So, if all roads lead to Rome, then all roads leave from Rome. Wow, wherever you go there you are. It's a full circle moment. And as I always says, "Whatever you should be doing with your Life, you've been doing it your whole Life."

Last night I had another wonderful experience in sharing what I do with someone from a religious order. A Catholic nun. And folks, I don't hide a bit of it. I've been down this road before with a Cardinal, several bishops, priests, pastors, deacons and nuns and they have all been truly wonderful experiences. I put it right on out there and we have an intelligent conversation. I always begin by stating my label. I don't necessarily need the label as much as others need the label in order to understand who I am, which will then stimulate their line of questioning. We all have labels to help identify who we are and increase our understanding of each other. So I said, "I am a Holistic Health Consultant and I conduct all of my business via the internet through a couple of websites." When the person moves into their next question of wanting to know more, then this leads to my explanation of what I believe "wholism" to be. I explain how I use any positive means available to me as created by God in order to help a client heal what is going on in their Life and in turn answer questions that may be tugging at their spirit. I shared with the Sister everything (yes everything) that I have on this site and how I go about doing health consultations, astrological charting and intuitive readings using a birth date. She was intrigued by the Animal Readings and the fact that all I need are the birth date and the animal in question with the circumstances surrounding the animal in order to arrive at the answer. Not surprisingly, she couldn't wait to tell me that she was a Gemini and wanted to know if I could do dream interpretations as well. I said, "Yes I can." So there we went into that conversation. Interestingly enough, all roads lead to Rome and the Catholic nun ended up having a full circle moment.

Let's take for instance my sister Cis (a Leo). Remember the Daily Message called, Cissybear's Mission in Life. You know the one, she started her own transportation company out of the ashes of her Life crumbling. What a great story! (By the way, she just bought another van, with a paralift.) I guarantee you that her 'transportation' mission reflects in her Natal Chart. She would never be able to get away from it because it keeps coming back. All roads lead to Rome. Any Animal Medicine she encounters along the way is there to help guide her, just as her angels will. Whatever it will take to help Cis see her way, then it will be presented to her. If she doesn't pay attention and remain conscious then she won't feel, see or experience the assistance. Ah but she does! Most of us can't see angels but we can feel them. And when it comes to animals, we not only see them, we hear them. Natal Charts, angels, animals, health issues, dreams, signs, symptoms, experiences, people, places and things all lead to Rome. Wherever you go, there you. The rate at which you 'get it' is up to you.

I have dabbled and involved myself in so many rituals, religions, ceremonies and practices that it would curl your hair! I have been Pentecostal, Jehovah Witness, Baptist, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian and now Catholic. I was also baptized by the United Church of Christ at 18 years old. I have studied Eastern Philosophy, Taoism, Buddhism and Hinduism. I have swung pendulums to get answers, had Tarot card readings, angel card readings, gone to psychics, mediums and intuitives until I started reading the people who were reading me. I have engaged in Native American ceremonies and rituals and I have even spent five nights completely naked in the wildness alone with God during a spiritual vision quest. (Well, that was cold! winky winky) Oh yeah folks, I've done it all. I still enjoy my pendulum at times and enjoy my angel card readings with Gary Paul Frese. He's a cool Aries. And I Love kickin' back with my Bible and diggin' on some cool scripture. I'm using it all because all roads lead to Rome. It's funny, no matter what I practice, it all just keeps going straight back to God. All roads lead to Rome.

Folks, getting to your Rome does not have to be difficult unless you say so. Use the totality of this site and the totality of your Life to help you understand who you are and to solidify in your heart where you want to go. All of the clues -- your signs, symptoms, animal medicine, natal chart, relationships, health issues, experiences, people, places and things are links that are connecting the roads. Many of you have felt a close connection with me and wondered if there is a link . . . the answer is yes, of course there is. All roads lead to Rome and I just happen to be one of your links in the road. How ROCKIN' cool is that!?!

RESTRICTIVE FREEDOM

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

The interesting thing about cyberspace is there are no boundaries or timelines and very little restrictions. We who work in cyberspace for our career basically have no one telling us what to do or when to do it. We do what we want, wear what we want, say what we want, write what we want, post what we want, at any time we want. We also get up when we want and eat when we want. It's a very cool Life. And where there are rules, there are usually pretty easy ways around them. There are also no clocks except our own timeline since we Cybernauts operate in every time zone on the planet. I would imagine that any Cybernaut like myself has faced ethical and spiritual question marks as to whether they are doing the right thing. Then again, I would imagine that we are all confronted with ethical and spiritual question marks every single day in our personal or professional Life.

Having Jupiter in Aquarius as I do in my Natal Chart, means I will protect my freedom at all costs. And I mean at all costs folks! I am a 'fist pumping in the air' type of gal who will fight for my freedom tooth and toenail. Even though this 'fist pumping' action stretches into my political views as well, for this writing I will leave politics out of it. As I have told you before, Jupiter is THE MOST freedom-loving planet and Aquarius is THE MOST freedom-loving sign. When you put these two together it creates a person that cannot be caged, restricted, limited or bound. This includes my freedom of expression, my freedom of travel, my freedom of speech, my freedom of dress, my freedom of thought, my freedom of anything!

When someone else messes up and it impacts my freedom or restricts me in any way, then I come out swinging, clawing and biting. In other words, if someone makes a bad decision and then I have to follow one more law, statute, ordinance, mandate, rule, guideline or regulation as a result, then my fist starts pumping. Even if I have to self-impose my own new restriction or rule due to someone else's bad judgment, then that can get my fist pumping in the air as well. God gave me 'free will' which I do my best to use respectfully, as well as respect others God-given free will. I also live in the USA where our Declaration of Independence states that we have the "right to Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," and I respect that too. Having said that, I can guarantee you one thing that the Declaration of Independence doesn't say . . . it doesn't say that someone else is entitled to 'MY' Life, liberty or pursuit of happiness. Find your own joy!

I don't like restrictions or even self-imposed restrictions, but I will do it when I have to or when it is necessary. I don't like to be told what to do or forced to do anything because someone else made a bad decision but alas, that is exactly what I was faced with this morning. This Leo Moon (fiery roaring energy) in Gemini's 3rd house of communication today certainly got this Gemini (me) going. Keep in mind that air (Gemini) feeds a fire (Leo) and my burner was turned on! Yowza! As a result of this boundary crossing, you will notice that the pictures on this site of myself or any other personal pictures now have splattered across the face or the forehead -- Copyright: Dr. Loretta Standley. Further, lifting pictures off my site is absolutely prohibited. As a result, I ended up having a mind-wrestle with another Gemini this morning over lifting my pictures without my permission. I don't feel the need to say anything more than that because quite honestly I said what was important to me. Thank God that He gave me the ability and resources to create a forum where I have the freedom to speak up for myself and enjoy my freedom of speech. I also Thank God that He gave me this wonderful split personality (winky wink) which allows me to simply jump into my other self and get on with my freedom-loving-goofey and enjoyable Life without blinking an eye. I simply choose to be in a Good mood. I admit, sometimes I really put myself out there and sometimes I can be very secretive but that's me, a dual-natured Gemini who God created me to be, so I'm livin' what He created without apology. In closing, the "get" for all of us is this . . . How about we take the time to respect and consider each others boundaries no matter how big or small they may be.

Read the last daily message titled, Congenital Anomalies and The Cockroach Theory.

CONGENITAL ANOMALIES AND
THE COCKROACH THEORY

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

The Cockroach Theory is mainly used in market watch that states, "One item of bad news is an indication that there is more bad news to come: in the same way that seeing one cockroach is an indication that there are more lurking about yet out of site." In healthcare we basically use the same "Cockroach Theory" when we see a congential anomaly but it doesn't always mean bad news. In other words, where there is one congential anomaly, there will be others. I naturally have a positive outlook on Life so when I think about "The Cockroach Theory" then I choose to apply the 'theory' to Good news as well. Where there is one wonderful thing, there are other wonderful things that may be lurking about yet out of site until I discover them. So there!

Congenital anomaly means something that is unusual or different at birth. The word "congenital" means "at birth." "Anomaly" comes from the Greek word "anomalos" meaning "uneven" or "irregular." A minor anomaly is defined as an unusual anatomic feature that is of no serious medical or cosmetic consequence to the patient. A minor anomaly of the feet might be curvature of one toe that overlaps the toe next to it. A major anomaly, might be a cleft lip and cleft palate which is a birth defect of serious medical and cosmetic consequence to the individual.

Just like the Cockroach Theory states, where there is one, there are others and I happen to have many congential anomalies. Most of us do. Most of us are not perfect; symmetrical that is. As embryo's we start out as a collection of cells which then come together as two sides and form a hollow cylindrical structure of cells, called the neural tube, that will give rise to the brain and spinal cord. As the collection of cells come together to form this tube, sometimes the meeting of both sides to make this hollow cylinder overshoot each other and come together uneven which can cause midline (neural tube) defects. It's really a cool thing how we become the physical symmetrical or asymmetical person that we are. Once the tube is formed then we start to form little buds on both sides of this tube which become our appendanges (arms and legs). That's why the first weeks of Life are soooooo vitally important. Isn't that cool?

I didn't find out that I had so many congenital anomalies until as student doctors we had to take each others x-rays and study ourselves along with our classmates. I remember as a class we had all kinds of wonderful congenital anomalies to look at. One person had several extra ribs, one person had several fused vertebrae and one person had what is called a teratoma. [Pronounced tah-rat-ah-toma] A teratoma is actually a tumor with tissue or organ components that contain hair, teeth, bone and on rare occasion has more complex organs such as an eyeball, torso or a hand. A person can go on to live a normal Life and never know that this exists inside of them. It is believed that this is the twin of the individual. A teratoma will not contain organs but it may have one or more tissues normally found in organs such as the brain, thyroid, liver, and lung. These teratomas are not harmful to the person although it can become quite a psychological or emotional experience for them once they learn of it.

My x-ray revealed that I have several midline anomalies. I have what is called a Spina Bifida Occulta. We have another way of saying this, which is Spina Bifida Un-important-ah. Meaning, it isn't important. As my neural tube was coming together, it overshot and became uneven although it still fused and made a somewhat normal looking vertebrae at that particular level in my back. It's an uneven vertebrae but it works for me and doesn't bother me a bit. On some individuals a vertebrae may not come all the way together thereby leaving a space where there is a protrusion of the spinal cord and meninges outside of the spinal canal. This is called Spina Bifida Vera and is life-threatening. Yes, I was blessed that my vertebrae fused even though it is uneven. Oh you betcha' I'm grateful.

I was also born with a pilonidal cyst, which happens at birth and is located right at the center of the tailbone (coccyx). I never knew it was there until we actually played doctor in school and another student doctor found it. (Now, now, my little chickadees, keep your mind clean! winky wink) I never had a problem with this cyst as most times a person will experience infection. Then one day my pilonidal cyst just disappeared as quickly as I learned it was there. POOF be gone pilonidal cyst! My body just reabsorbed it without warning, which can certainly happen. I also have an extra lateral incisor, so it looks like I have three front teeth or 3 central incisors. I actually have one tooth that is centered perfectly with the septum of my nose. No one really notices it until I say something about it. Whatever! And I still have a baby tooth. Oh I have all kinds of midline 'gifts' from God that the medical community calls midline 'neural tube defects'. Me, I think they are gifts!

So if you are wondering why you have one breast bigger than the other, one eye larger than the other, one foot or hand bigger than the other . . well now you know why. It's quite normal to be different, unique, special, and unlike any other person on the planet. I happen to Love my three front teeth and my Spina Bifida Un-important-ah. Check out that central tooth above in my pic. Cool huh?

Now if you take this "Cockroach Theory" and apply it to everything in your Life, then it should help you with your intuition and making decisions. Above all, remember that "The Cockroach Theory" doesn't have to be bad . . it just depends on how you choose to look at it. Embrace yourself, no matter what you look like. God does!

NEW!
NATIVE AMERICAN ANIMAL MEDICINE
WEBSITE!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Due to the hundreds of e-mails I receive on a weekly basis requesting personal interpretation of a certain animal and how it applies to an individual's Life, I will now be offering "Animal Medicine Readings" and will no longer be answering these personal interpretations through e-mail. Folks, it's really just a time issue that has forced me to make this necessary change. Remember, there is only one of me, even though I am a Gemini and there are really two of me. (winky wink) The hundreds of e-mails were taking up so much of my time volleying e-mails back and forth to get the full story, birth dates, etc., that it's just no longer feasible for me to do these interpretations through e-mail without a system. Not to mention I didn't have time to write and create new things for you. This will free up a considerable amount of time and it will also allow me time to write more in order to help you apply the 'animal medicine' information. If you need further assistance, then we will have to do a reading.

THE GOOD NEWS IS -- Over the past few weeks I have created another website called -- www.NativeAmericanAnimalMedicine.com. You will see the link in The Holistic Shop and you will also see a linked graphic in the top right hand banner column of this website. I also put a graphic in your Monday Daily Horoscope. The Native American Animal Medicine pages on this website (drstandley.com) will more than likely remain simply because these pages are already logged by all of the search engines. Why not double my pleasure since I am a Gemini. As I write the information on www.NativeAmericanAnimalMedicine.com I will also copy it to this site as well. I am crazy excited about this project because it gave me something NEW! to do because I was turning into a very bored Gemini. I need brain stimulation like a plant needs water. I have been twisted and conflicted to the point of frustration over how to handle the "animal medicine" e-mails, phone calls and web pages for several years (yes, years!) and this is the answer. Hey, what's one more website with more information? And I really enjoy doing these readings because they are so incredibly enlightening. Not to mention the answers always match the Natal Chart, as it should because, "When it's the Truth it shows up everywhere." And when I'm excited, I get oodles accomplished!

Coupled with my Love for Native American Animal Medicine, I am an intuitive, which gives me the unique ability to decipher what a certain animal means for you 'personally' when it crosses your path. During an "Animal Medicine Reading" I will dive further into the meaning beyond what you will read on the animal medicine pages and apply the information directly to what is going on in your Life.

In order to do this I will need your birth date and the name of the animal in question. I will also need to know the circumstances in which you saw this animal. The circumstances are 'very' important. Animal Readings will be done by phone and the fees are based on time. If you would like to check my availability before ordering a reading, just give me a call. My phone number is listed all over my websites. If you live outside the United States you will need to call me back.

During your reading we will discuss the animal(s) that have crossed your path that have brought a question mark to your Life and then if time allows we will discuss your "Power Animal" and your "Totem," which are two entirely different things. Enjoy the site . . . I'm going to bed!

THE OLD LADY BASKET

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Most of you probably know that my bicycle was stolen last week and within five hours God graced me with another bicycle that was "better than" the one I had. In addition to the thief, I find the attachment that other people had to my bicycle pretty interesting. Actually the attachment is more to the basket that was on my bicycle. It's remarkable enough that I'm sharing the story with you. When I shrug off the stolen bicycle and share the miracle of how quickly a 'better' bicycle replaced the old one, the response continues to be, "Yeah but that was great basket you had!"

I didn't know my basket was the trademark of my bike in the neighborhood. If my bike was parked outside somewhere in the neighborhood, then it was obvious it was mine simply because of the basket. The mourning over my basket by others has just been surreal. Honestly you would not believe it. I've been completely okay about the loss, but others somehow attached themselves to something that was mine. Everyone knows I called it, "the old lady basket," even though it doesn't really look like an old lady basket at all. Now my "old lady cart" that I take the open Farmer's Market every Saturday actually does look like an old lady cart. It's just something goofey that I always say. Still, why is everyone so attached to my basket? Quite honestly I don't know anyone who hasn't commented about my basket when they found out about my stolen bike. The coolest thing about the basket is it was detachable. So when I would go into the store, I would just detach the basket and carry it in with me hanging from my forearm. I liked this particular basket because I am a utilitarian, meaning whatever I buy it 'has to be' functional! I don't spend money on junk or on things I won't use. PERIOD! I don't even have a junk drawer!

This past weekend I dropped off the new teal colored bicycle that I was graced with for FREE at the bicycle shop to get a tune-up. I wanted some professional eyeballs all over it since riding a bicycle is after all my main source of transportation and not just used for recreational purposes. I tend to be very hard on a bike, mostly because I enjoy curb jumping, riding down any set of stairs that happen to be around or bouncing down the cobblestone streets in certain areas of my neighborhood; therefore, a professional overview was definitely a Good idea. While at the bike shop I learned that this new 21 speed bike is not only a racing bike, it is also a mountain bike. Yahooooo, my other bike was a mountain bike but only a 7 speed. As I was waiting for someone to teach me how to use the 21 gears, I spotted an old lady basket just like the one I had and asked if they could put that basket on the bike I brought in. Even though the handle bars are completely different and very 'racey' looking, with just a few minor adjustments they could make the basket work. Oh the bicycle story just gets better and better!

When I picked up the bike I could hardly wait to get out and take it for a curb jumping test drive. Folks, this bike is f-a-s-t. I mean it is crazy fast. As I was zipping down the street this afternoon I saw an acquaintance from church and stopped to chit-chat with him rather than just toss up a hand and wave. Incredibly, the very first thing he said was, "Hey! That's a great basket!" I just smiled and said, "Yeah, it sure is!" (The picture below is my exact basket) Folks, the reality is most physical possessions really are replaceable either 'equal to or better than' what we had and if they aren't replaceable then it looks like we'll have to come to peace with that reality as well.

ME, AND THE OTHER ME

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

We have been dealing with some really bizarre weather here in St. Louis, but then again our motto here is, "If you don't like the weather in St. Louis, just stay a day and it'll change." Folks, that is no joke! This past Sunday it was 80 degrees, which was nearly a record setting high temperature for that date. Then Monday it dropped to 30 degrees. Yesterday (Tuesday) we had 8 to 10 inches of snowfall between the morning and afternoon rush hours. And today (Wednesday) all the streets are completely cleared off and nearly bone dry (including the sidewalks) and it's 43 degrees. The weather does change quickly here so if you come to St. Louis you better bring a heavy coat, a light jacket and a pair of shorts because the weather will change tomorrow.

I had spent the night at my daughter's house Monday night because she has to get up early and be at clinicals at 6:30 AM. She is in Nursing School and graduates in May 2008. We had all been forewarned that the heavy snow was due somewhere around morning rush hour. Keep in mind I live in the City and my daughter lives 20 miles away in the County. I had an appointment with my trainer (Ashley an Aries) at 8:30 AM and I was dropping off my grandson Big Tree at school at 8:00 AM. I called Ashley when I was on my way and told her the snow was just beginning to fall and I was bound and determined to get my workout in with her. I was definitely on my way. By the time I arrived on my street, the snow was falling hard enough that the streets were already completely covered and visibilty was a challenge. It was just blinding WHITE!

During my drive to the City I had been thinking about my new committment to my health. Not just my physical health but my spirit's health as well. I was contemplating the health of both of me, physically and spiritually. Since that week of sickness happened a few weeks ago which put me into the "feel" of what feeling bad really feels like, I can tell you that any and all lethargic or bad habits that I was conscious of simply disappeared. That includes mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and chemically. I mean like a crack of lightning, my mind snapped and it all just disappeared. I was done! THAT's how much I don't like feeling bad that I chose change in a bolt of lightning instant. The physical me was now important to the spiritual me and vice versa, where I was probably not as committed before. Me and the other me were now in this together. This isn't my Gemini duality thing that I'm talking about. I'm speaking of my spirit and my physical body were in this together. Both of me. Me here and me in there. No matter what, I was bound and determined to get both of me to Ashley so she could serve 'us' up some Aries warrior moves because my physical body certainly does impact my spirit. Just as my spirit impacts my physical body. I was not about to turn back. Both of me were in for the long haul.

"It's not about you here. It's about you, in there!
That's the real you, inside that physical body of yours.
That is who you are."
Dr. Loretta Standley~

After my workout I needed to get back out to the county so I could be in place to pick up Big Tree from school. It was now 10:00 AM, the snow was coming down at one inch an hour, so my plan was to go straight to Big Tree's school and take him out early. My daughter called at 10:10 AM and said to turn back because she had been released from clinicals early and she was going to go ahead and pick up Big Tree early from school. As I was driving my daughter's van back to my place I started thinking about how I decided back in the Fall that I would go one more winter without buying a car. Remember that Daily Message? I had told you how much I disliked cold weather and that I was going to choose to enjoy cold weather and have a different attitude about it. I needed to find happiness and peace in what I didn't like and that includes cold weather. Remember me telling you about that? Since that time riding my bike in the cold has actually been quite an enjoyable experience. I actually do enjoy it. Walking in the cold has been a whole other story because it takes me longer to get to my destination. When there is snow or ice then that pretty much nixes me riding the bike.

When I pulled back up to my place I took my things inside and decided that I needed to go for a walk and enjoy the scene around me. When I see snow, all I think about is what I can't do. I needed to make peace with the snow, the cold, the zero visibility and the huge snowflakes pelting my face. Sure the snow was pretty but no, I wasn't really Lovin' it. I needed to experience the moment as I knew my grandson would experience it when my daughter would pick him up from school. Big Tree was going to push the school door open in crazy excitement and all out fascination completely tickled that it was snowing wildly, neverminding it was COLD! He was going to be happy about it and he was going to be closing his eyes and sticking out his tongue to catch snowflakes any minute. The only way I was going to enjoy any of this is to remember my 'child of God' space and deliberately choose to embrace the WOW (wide-open-wonderment) that this particular moment had to offer me just as it was being offered to my grandson.

SIDENOTE -- I have added to my signature line of ALL e-mails this sentence, "As a gentle reminder, please do not add me to 'any' forward list." Please do not take this personal when we e-mail each other. It was just something that was necessary for me to do.

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

NO WORRIES!

AudioOsiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Hi folks, sorry about the long delay in the Daily Message over the past two days because I have been working on that mega-mondo project. In between my daily routine of writing horoscopes, intuitive readings, chart interpretations, health consults, writing natal charts, making bath salts, answering hundreds of e-mails and tons of phone calls, at the same time I am diligently working on mega-mondo project. I do enjoy being BUSY, otherwise I'll just goof off and play around, so its best that I create things to keep me busy, while at the same time you all keep me hoppin'. I really don't mind because the more I have to do, the more I can handle it. Remember, I am a Gemini who gets easily bored, which can turn into being a goof off. I absolutely have to be rockin' busy. One other thing, remember I can handle phone calls much quicker than e-mails.

I'm glad I changed my mind on releasing the mega-mondo project Monday with that long void of course moon. So this weekend the Moon will be Aries which makes it a PERFECT-A-MUNDO time to release it to the masses, since it will be a time of new beginnings. Please be patient with me because I am doing this for YOU! Many of you know how I feel about "worry," so please do not "worry" about me or send me "worry" when I do not write a Daily Message. Just assume that my Life is wonderful and I must be doing something spectacular.

I do have plenty of Daily Messages to write as I have been mentating rather wonderfully. Right now, I really want to get that project complete. Please bear with me. Okie Dokie my little chickadees? (winky wink)

One other thing, I updated your monthly horoscope for your Mars Opporunity. Check it out because Mars has moved back into Cancer where it was from September 29, 2007 until November 15, 2007. Does history really need to repeat itself or did you learn when Mars was in Cancer back in the Fall?
