Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Yee-Haw! - Folks I have just added my latest toy to the website. I have now added audio and I will be leaving messages for you all over this website in various sections. Remember, this website is 3,000 pages! [Good grief Batman!] Click the 'redtail talking feather' anywhere on the site and you will hear me talking to you. I have another wonderful surprise coming along that I will unleash on you very soon.

This is just a tiny little taste of what will be coming! Oh - I've been busy alright! Let me know what you think. I already know I have to adjust my voice to tame my p's and b's. Having been in radio for quite a while, it is just standard operating procedure. I am so excited about this because I will be back on the airwaves where I feel the most comfortable. We Gemini's are the master communicators of the zodiac. I am an air sign that rules the airwaves. I feel F-R-E-E! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I have really missed being on-the-air since I left my previous radio show because I wanted bigger, better and more. Working for other people does not work for me. It never did and it never will. That's my North Node in the 2nd house! I'm my own ME!

Keep checking back this weekend because I will be leave messages everywhere. And the BIG surprise will come later. Until then . . . Remember, nobody's right if everybody's wrong.

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

On any given day, I will bicycle to the Metrolink (light rail system) here in St. Louis and then catch the train to the airport. Once I get to the airport, I will either cycle on and ride to my daughter's house or . . . either she or her husband will pick me up. The bike just goes in the back of the van. I enjoy thinking about my grandson "Big Tree" in the future telling others how he and his mommy or daddy used to pick up his granny at the airport on her bicycle. See how crazy that sounds. It cracks me up!

Yesterday, I had a full backpack standing there at the Metrolink. I didn't know if I would be coming home that night or in the morning, so I packed my laptop and few overnight items. As I was waiting for the train and holding on to my bicycle, a piece from my basket fell off on the ground.

There was a man was standing right next to me with nothing in his hands who looked at the item when it hit the ground. I said, "Sir, can you grab that for me?"

He looked me at me in shock and said, "You can get that?"

I said, "Well, yeah, I could. But my backpack is really heavy to bend over with and I'm holding my bike. I asked you nicely. Are you kidding me?"

He came closer to me with his palms up and his hands stretched out and said, " Look! One time I was holding groceries in both hands and I couldn't open a door. No one helped ME!"

I responded, "So that's it. Now it's my fault! Okay, sir. That's okay because you just just showed me who you are.

He said again, "No one helped ME!"

I said again, "Sir! You just showed me who you are. It's okay!"

The man just stood there thinking and then began pacing back and forth as if he was back in that moment when no one helped him, much less 'offered' to help him. Whoever it was that chose not to help this man certainly affected him. Always remember your influence on people. Always!

As the train pulled up and I rolled on with my bike, the man stepped on after me and took a seat. Since I had the bike, I positioned myself so that I could hold on to my bike and hold the hand bar at the same time. I was faced in the man's direction and he was seated about three rows away facing my direction. In order to keep myself from thinking negative thoughts, because I can do that as easily as the next person, I kept my head bowed and just started praying for the whole situation. I prayed for both of us.

At the next stop two teenage girls got on and were just giggling, laughing and being cute. I Love seeing people of any age having fun, smiling and just enjoying Life. One girl borrowed the cell phone of the other girl. As we came up to the next stop, the girl on the cell phone positioned herself in a compromising way so that when the doors were closing she was forced off the train and on to the platform. The girls started squealing in laughter. Everyone on the train laughed. It really was funny! As the train pulled away, the other girl still laughing went to sit down directly across the aisle from the man who would not help me. A woman had sat next to him on the previous stop so he was next to the window. The young girl said, "She has my cell phone and now I can't call home." The woman seated next to the man reached into her purse, pulled out her cell phone and she said, "Here, you can use mine."

Again, always remember your influence on people. We are ALL influential people.

You Cannot Solve a Problem with the Same Energy That Created It

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

For those of you who continually sit in doubt, worry, fear and anxiety. Tell me something, since you do get to choose your response 'to anything', why would you deliberately choose to respond in doubt, worry, fear and anxiety? You see folks, I have sat in that seat before and I know exactly what it feels like to stress myself further over money, relationships and career while at the same time distancing myself further from God and trusting that He has my back. If you are busying your brain with worry, then how in the world are you going to think up a solution? How can you trust God when you are still holding on to control and lousy control at that!?!

"Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think."
Niels Bohr
(one of my fave physicists)

I enjoy thinking and reading about parallel universes on a spiritual and scientific level. In fact, my magazines of choice are Omni, Discover and Scientific American. oooh yeah! That's the meat of the Universe, second to the Holy Bible and the Gospels. I am first and foremost a bold and spiritually motivated gal so that I can get back "Home" to God. Like I have said before, when I go "Home" to God, I want Him to greet me saying, "That's my kid!". I am also very holistic in nature and a woman of science. All three of me (spiritual, holistic and science) agree with one another. That is just who I am. Believe it or not, I have a very skeptical nature and I do not buy into something just because it sounds flowery and spiritual. I have to believe and once I believe, I stand in my belief system. I enjoy knowing what is possible merely by me thinking of it; therefore, I am able to manifest it physically. I believe there is a trust issue that many of you are dealing with or should I say, not dealing with.

"Nothing can come of nothing."
William Shakespeare, (1564-1616)

You must remember folks that you have 'free will' and you have God on your side. How cool is that? Seriously! You can use this free will to change your course at any time, but you must first choose to trust God. Bottom line! I believe the first thing on the 'free will agenda' is trusting that God has your back and He will support you as you consciously work through your problems. If you are still thinking of a problem the same way you did yesterday, then what kind of result do you think you will have today? You guessed it, you have the same problem! God gave us 'discernment' so we can choose and decide. You are smarter than you think and you should use this gift to your advantage. But if you are doing nothing, then nothing happens!

"You cannot solve a problem with the same energy that created it."
Albert Einstein,
(my fave physicist)

It is true. No two opposing energies can hold the same space. If you are thinking negatively, then you are certainly not thinking positively. And if you are thinking negatively, then how can you think up a solution. I talk to an incredible amount of people every day by phone and e-mail. The main theme is fear. Why is that the first choice? I have said it before and I will say it a million times more, if you are thinking in terms of doubt, worry, fear and anxiety, then you are not talking to God. This means you are having a conversation with 'the booger' who has hold of your attention because it is his intent to make you fearful. How does that make you feel? As long as you are talking to 'the booger', then you are not following the path that God has laid out for you.

"You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war."
Albert Einstein,
(my fave physicist)

I will share a little secret with you. I may have shared it before, I can't remember but I think it bears repeating. Late one night, about 3 a.m., I had realized what I had created with this website and I became completely overwhelmed. I had just checked my stat-counter and the visitor log completely freaked me out. I just stopped and looked at the visitor count and I got scared. Really scared! I went into the bathroom, sat down on the side of the bathtub, grabbed a Kleenex and just started crying. In nearly a yelling voice I cried out, "Oh my God, OH MY GOD! What have I created? I can't do it! OH MY GOD! What have I done? I can't do it Captain. I can't do it." [Yeah, the use of Captain I got from Star Trek. I think God understands my fear showing up as humor in the same breath.] Anyway, I just started sobbing in utter fear with my face buried in my hands.

Keep in mind, I knew darn Good and well that 'the booger' was putting fear into my heart at the exact moment I realized that I was growing exponentially because that is 'the boogers' job, to keep me from doing MY JOB! But I also believe that my Faith in God is stronger than any fear 'the booger' can put into me. The booger uses fear to stop us from being who God created us to be. I believe when I use God's name in a sentence, then He hears me and I choose to listen for His Response. I believe God talks to me in the same tone and sound as my voice so that I can hear Him clearly and distinctly. What I heard back was, "Oh shut up! This is what you wanted. Now get back to work!" Naturally, I instantly stopped crying . . giggled and went straight back to my computer because I had prayed about those stat-counter results and God answered me. How you handle a problem folks is your choice . . . the bottom line is all choice! My fear lasted not 10 seconds . . . how long will yours last?

My Houdini Act
Where Have I Been?

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

Folks, I have been trying to figure out what is going on with me as much as you have been e-mailing wondering where the Daily Messages have been and the Daily Horoscopes. All I can say is that it is a chart thing! Keep in mind that I have my South Node in Pisces and Pisces is the sign of the 'fabulous escape artist'. Pisces can pull a 'Houdini Act' in a flash and you might wonder, "Where did they go?" I have finally decided that my disappearing act is due to my South Nodes Pisces catching up with Jupiter moving through my Natal Chart 5th house of fun, play, intimacy, dating and pleasurable activities. Keep in mind this is also the house of theater, drama, sport and competition. Here is a little astrological lesson for you. Keep in mind that Jupiter is the planet of expansion and extra blessings. Oh - I just Love extra blessings!

Get out your Natal Charts and find which house is ruled by Scorpio. If Scorpio rules your 10th house cusp, then Jupiter in Scorpio has affected your career. If Scorpio rules your 2nd house cusp, then Jupiter in Scorpio has affected your personal money. If Scorpio rules your 7th house cusp, then Jupiter in Scorpio has affected your relationships. If you read about Jupiter in your monthly horoscope, keep in mind that this is a generality for an entire sign and it is NOT personal for you. Make it personal. You should ALWAYS want to know how signs affect you personally and not in general. That is why having your personal Natal Chart is so important.

Those of you who have been with me for a while know how I enjoy bee-bopping all over the skies and playing trains, planes and automobiles. I absolutely Love to get-up-and-go! Anywhere! I am the consummate butterfly. Not to mention riding my trusty bicycle with wings on my back. All I can tell you is that it has been one heck of a wild ride since Jupiter went into Scorpio last October 27th, 2005 and Jupiter will make its move into Sagittarius on November 27th, 2006. Jupiter has been passing through my 5th house of fun and that seems to be all I have been doing for nearly a year. I mean it is non-stop! I have had more fun that I can even communicate to you while playing with family, crazy friends in-town and out-of-town. It has been crazy!

I have traveled along the perimeter of the country and through the middle of the country since Jupiter went into Scorpio in October 2005. I have been to Seattle, Detroit, New York, Washington D.C., Boston, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Naples, Cherokee, Columbus, Kansas City, San Diego, Nashville, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Dallas, Baltimore, Houston, Knoxville, Chicago, Louisville, Newark and Denver. I'm probably forgetting a few places but I'm sure you get the picture. In fact, once again I just returned from New York last Friday and I will be heading back down to Cherokee, North Carolina next week with Christine. Then in a few weeks, I will be headed back to see my girlfriend "H" (Henrietta) in Washington D.C.

As a result, I have taken calls from many of you in airports, taxi-cabs, trains and shuttle buses! I have even stopped on my bicycle and chatted with a few of you. I lead a whacky Life and I LOVE IT!

The non-stop fun all started last Fall when Jupiter moved into Scorpio touching off my 5th house of fun. Typically, I go to all of the St. Louis Rams football games anyway, but last Fall, all of the sudden, I was headed off to NFL games in different cities, including wildcard weekend, the playoff games and ending with the Superbowl in Detroit. A typical Fall for me is going to musicals, plays and weekly performances by our world famous St. Louis Symphony. But last year, I never missed one single performance by our talented musicians and/or performers here in St. Louis. Also starting in January 2006, I was bee-bopping around meeting up with girlfriends having a grand ol' time with them. I have also been camping, fishing and canoeing. Not to mention, I have been going out with friends at least 3 to 4 times a week when I am in town. No kidding! I don't know how I do it. It must be Jupiter expanding my house of fun! The 5th house is also the house of children and I have had more fun with my daughter Karmen and my grandson 'Big Tree' over and over again. I even had the opportunity to go on a trip alone with Karmen which we have not done in years since she is now married, a student and a mother.

Obviously, when Jupiter moves into my 6th house of work ethic, health, hygiene, day to day Life and being in-service, that area of my Life will then expand. This is wonderful news for me because Sagittarius naturally rules my 6th house of health. Having a health website will obviously serve me well. In fact, it will E-X-P-A-N-D with the Jupiter in Sagittarius influence. Count on it! Sagittarius is naturally global and foreign affairs, which is why I deliberately choose to reveal my work on a global stage. I can only imagine how exponential this website will grow during that time. In fact, Sagittarian's should start seeing their Life expand right about NOW!

I cannot stress enough how important it is for you Scorpion's to take advantage of the growth potential that is sitting right in front of you, RIGHT NOW! Scorpio's YOU have extra blessings and expansion RIGHT NOW! And for you Sagittarian's, jump on this train. It is HUGE! Jupiter is THE MOST expansive planet in our solar system and carries A HUGE amount of energy.

During this year of fun and 'games', all consults, readings and charts have been on time like clock work. And I have remained available at the specified 'open phone line' time at the top of this website. What has suffered has been the daily horoscopes as I wind down this year of fun. I will do my best to keep these horoscopes updated and begin posting the Daily Message more timely. Keeping my priorities straight means that I will always choose to answer my phone, answer e-mails, tend to my readings, consults and writing charts before I write anything on the daily horoscopes. That is just the way it has to be. I will do my best to get this area caught up. I'm sure Jupiter in Sagittarius moving through my 6th house will benefit you all immensely since it is about 'day to day Life' which will positively affect the 'daily message' and 'daily horoscopes'. My day to day health regimen will also expand and become more routine. I look forward to it. Now go check your Natal Chart for these wonderful Jupiter benefits.

When it is the Truth,
it shows up everywhere!

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Yesterday afternoon I was playing golf with some friends when I made the comment to one of the guys that I had never seen him hit a ball so straight and so consistently since I have known him. Folks, I have been playing golf with this man for 20 years and I know how he hits a golf ball. There was never any rhyme or reason as to which direction his ball would travel; we would all just take cover. But yesterday, distance and direction was not a problem. That ball went straight!

As far as my game, I am a power hitter. I can definitely drive a ball on the golf course but when it comes to playing the green, I will chip my ball from one end of the green to the other. And my putting? Even if I have a two foot putt, I hit the ball with the power to travel twenty feet. For some reason, I cannot just tap it. I smack it! It's my Mars in Leo that gives me all the power and strength. I have the strongest placement for Mars in my Natal Chart. Those of us with Mars in Leo can put a couch on our back and walk up the stairs with no problem. No kidding! We are just physically strong individuals.

I finally decided not to get upset anymore while playing golf because I knew I would never get paid to play it as a career and I should just enjoy it for the Love of the game. A golf tournament for charity was one thing, but making a living at it was another. Like many golfers, including my friend, I have taken lesson after lesson and the net result was the same. Keeping the same golf pro year after year is a challenge because they move on to other facilities, etc.

I asked my friend if he started taking lessons again, then he stopped looked at me and said, "Loretta, I just decided to hold the club in a way that is comfortable for me. This feels Good to me and this feels natural to me." He told me at various times during his golfing years he took lessons from different people, as most of us golfers have. One would always correct what the other would tell him. He finally decided that he would be himself and hold the club in a way that was natural for him. I stood there for a moment thinking about how I always say, "When it is the Truth, it shows up everywhere." So here it was, the moment of Truth.

I grabbed my 3 Wood (my favorite club), positioned myself into the same golfer stance that I learned 27 years ago, closed my eyes and concentrated on gripping the club in a way that was natural to me. Then I opened my eyes, kept my eye on the ball, took a full swing, followed-through and then I yelled, "Good grief Batman, would you look at that! eeeeeeeeee!" Over and over again, no matter what club I used, even for chipping and putting I was consistent and I had some self-control. It reminded me of a story that I wrote about in my book, "And Who Are You?" when my teacher tried to get me to hold my pencil in a way that 'cramped my style' and I refused to do it. Talk about revisiting the past. When do we ever learn folks! :)

I learned yesteday that golf is no different than anything else in Life, because when it is the Truth, it shows up everywhere.

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

I woke up this morning hearing, "If Not For Misery" by The Rembrandts who is the same band that sings the "Friends" theme song, "I'll Be There For You". My daughter, Karmen, and I consider The Rembrandts one of our top bands. When I woke up hearing "If Not For Misery", I knew exactly what I was suppose to share with you today. I heard the message to be about wanting bigger, better and more from all that is Good. There is a line in the song that goes like this: Oh listen can't you see, if not for misery, we'd have nothing left at all. I understood exactly what I was suppose to write.

This DLG (Download from God) song fits so well with what I have been feeling for quite some time, but it is not misery, it is about ants in my pants. If you get a chance to hear this song, then you will know exactly what it means for you. Here I go again folks, into another round of ants in my pants, which is such a familiar place that tells me when I am ready for bigger, better and more from all that is Good. I want more! I do!

When the ants in my pants overtakes me, the last thing I do is sit back and wait for something to drop in to my lap. That lethargic and slothful attitude will get me nowhere fast, not to mention scripture says that God is not all that tickled with slothfulness. When I feel like I have to make something happen, then I do. I wait for no one! As selfish as this sounds, I am the type of person who will move forward, with or without you. Yet at the same time, I know that I will be taking people with me. Prayerfully you!

I deliberately set the stage for something bigger, better and more from all that is Good to happen in my Life. I want the Universe (God) to know that I am ready to handle bigger, better and more from all that is Good. So I prepare my Life by setting the stage and getting all of my ducks in a row. I know my opportunity is coming because I have prepared. That is a fact and falls under the Universal Law of Reciprocity. There has to be a reciprocal action to my action. It is Algebra folks! The equation has to be balanced. Remember in Algebra, whatever you do on one side of the equation, you HAVE TO DO TO THE OTHER SIDE of the equation. That is what makes Algebra so easy and people get all freaked out over it. I start by creating the equation. I fulfill my side of the equation, then I trust that the Mathematical Laws of the Universe will fulfill the other side of equation and it will balance. After all, mathematics is the Universal Language.

I am a very deliberate and purposeful gal; rarely do I do anything on accident and I have a clear purity of intent. I have been living deliberately and purposefully for as long as I can remember because I have always wanted bigger, better and more from all that is Good. Re-read the Daily Messages called, "And Who Are You?" or the one called, "Just Show Me How!" for another perspective on going after what you want so that you can create bigger, better and more from all that is Good. You are faced with opportunities every day, if you do not take them, then okay!

I am very excited about this new stage that I am setting, shaping and decorating. Folks, if you want bigger, better and more from all that is Good, then inject yourself into your own Life and go for it. Do something for cryin' out loud! My past experiences prove that I am unafraid of shaking things up a bit and going after what I want. When the feeling overcomes me to increase, add to, experience, live, move on and take a chance, then my spirit naturally responds, "Okay". But that's just me.

Last night I went to bed thinking of one of my favorite tunes - 'Dream Baby' by Roy Orbison. It just popped into my head minutes before I headed off to bed. I know God and my angels are so cool whispering songs to me all the time. I am a person who deliberately and purposefully monitors my thinking to increase my odds of having enlightening thoughts while awake and while sleeping. I firmly believe that our DLGs (Downloads from God) whether awake or asleep help us to set the stage and choose the cast of characters, so that we can be the directors of our dreams and produce a Good picture or movie in real Life. I believe God to be The Executive Producer of our dream. When we are open to His Words and Ideas, He will give us the Goods to produce a Good movie aka a Good Life.

Why is our knee-jerk reaction to a dream that we do not understand, believed to be bad? Why are we so fascinated with fear, worry, anxiety and doubt that we would not consciously choose to purposefully and emphatically entertain positive scenarios in order to help us overcome it and find answers? How can we fear what we do not know when there is just as much a likelihood of a positive outcome?

Keep in mind that your intuition, your gut instinct and your DLGs (Downloads from God) are all one in the same. It is that 'still, small voice' that is spoken about in 1 Kings 19:5-12. In particular, verse 12. Oprah has referred to the quiet voice within as 'the whisper'. It is one in the same folks! We are all saying the same thing, only saying it differently. Dreams are glimpses of direction, guidance and instruction. You must keep in mind that you have free will and you can use this information that you receive in your daydreams or nightdreams to guide and instruct you toward all that is Good.

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

I am very selective about what I allow my brain to entertain because I know it will affect my dreams and cloud my DLG understanding. That goes with what I watch on TV, what I read in print and what I hear people say. As far as gossip is concerned, there is nothing more unattractive than gossip. Talk about showing ugliness! I know this because I have done it, lived it, breathed it and got the T-Shirt! Negativity breeds and anticipates more of the same. How can it do anything else? All negativity can and will affect your DLGs. And remember, negativity is not of God, it is the other guy! YIKES! If you are in negativity mode, then you are NOT talking to God. Folks, keep your brains sacred between you and God!

Certainly, some dreams can warn us of something to avoid, but is that not also a Good thing? Protect your brain, protect your dreams and protect your DLGs.

NOTE -- All AOL-ers, when I send the daily horoscopes from now on, you will have to cut and paste the link into your browser.

Every now and again, my daughter Karmen will call me and say, "Mom, is there a void Moon today?" I stop what I am doing, check out the lunar influence and report back, "Yep, there sure is!" With relief in her voice she always says, "Okay, Good!" And then we talk and giggle about the wackiness of the day.

It is not that Karmen wants to have a void of course Moon swarming around her all day, but once you know that there is a void of course Moon, then it certainly helps you understand what is going on around you. There is a reason why things seem to go haywire and hectic. It's the void Moon!

When I write the daily horoscopes, I write them based on the influence of the Moon. That is because the Moon is considered the fastest moving planet. Yeah, I know it is not technically a planet, but in astrology it is referred to as planetary. The Moon changes every 2 to 2-1/2 days and since the Moon rules our emotions, you can see why our emotions vacillate between crazy and practical on any given day. This is why the day can start out emotionally stable in the morning and whacked out by the evening. Now if you truly apply this information and remember the lunar influence of the day, it sure as heck makes your day easier to handle.

There are other planets that are faster moving like the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus because they last around a month or a bit longer in a sign before moving to the next sign. And then some slower moving planets like Saturn and Jupiter that last a year or two. Jupiter is ending its one-year reign in Scorpio on November 23rd, 2006 and Saturn will end its two-year reign on Leo on September 15, 2007. And then there are the generational planets like Uranus, Neptune and Pluto that remain in a sign for 7 - 14 years and affect an entire generation of people.

Now do you see why I use the Moon to write the daily horoscopes and how the daily horoscopes are about your emotions? This is important stuff. Even more importantly is knowing your Moon in your Natal Chart. This is why I do not computer generate my daily horoscopes or the weekly, monthly and yearly for that matter. I write them as originals for each day. If you ever see my daily horoscopes on another website, please let me know. They are copyrighted and that could put this Indian on the warpath.

Back to the void of course Moon. Beginning this September, I have noted under each day in the daily horoscopes when the Moon is void of a course. This means that the Moon is merely in between signs, which creates confusing energy. It reminds me of Karmen and I's favorite movie scene in "Splash" starring Darryl Hannah and Tom Hanks. When he comes home and discovers his new mermaid girlfriend missing, he runs out of his apartment and hits the elevator on both sides of the hall. Then he stands in the middle of the hall with his knees bent, his arms stretched out and his game face on prepared to jump on the first elevator that opened. It is hilarious! I Love that scene! That is exactly what a void of course moon is like! When the moon is in between signs, it is crazy confusion, wacky, frustrating and intense waiting type of energy.

When the Moon is void of a course, there are delays, false starts and unexpected hassels. Some astrologers call this a "curve ball." This is because the moon will be moving between two different signs and we all know how different two signs are from one another. It is like the Moon is saying, should I be here or should I be there? The Moon does not even know how it feels yet, so how can you? This can last between a few seconds, minutes or hours and it can sometimes last a day or two. When this energy is faulty and unexpected, refrain from making decisions because judgment will more than likely be faulty because you would be making a decision when all the factors are not known. Refrain from signing contracts, shopping or promise anything during this time. Also refrain from getting your feathers ruffled when the moon is "void of course" because it is better to just submit to spontaneity. How Fun? It can be plenty of fun if you work it right!

Now if you choose to freak out during a void of course Moon during traffic or a long line, then that is your deal. Freak-out mode will only delay you further or tick you off longer. Just chill out during the void of course Moon, there is nothing you can do about it but understand it. And that in turn makes it all better. Just like when Karmen says to me, "Okay, Good!" She knows it is only the Moon and not really her. That's my girl.

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

I am back from the Columbus/Chicago and I will be heading out in the morning directly after Mass to go camping with 'the group' until Monday evening. They are already set up on the river and I will be playing catch up with them. Therefore, I will not be available by phone or computer on Sunday and Monday. My crazy summer has finally come to a close. On Tuesday morning I will be back on track, back on schedule and back in the saddle again. Yee-Haw!

I had been working the past two days on broken links throughout the site and making The Holistic Shop easier to navigate. The The Holistic Shop should be more user friendly now and I hope that I covered any questions that you may have shared with me on the phone or through e-mail.

I have added a couple NEW! things over the past two days. When you read your daily horoscope, you will see that I have included when the moon is 'Void of Course'. This means that the Moon is 'void of a course', which translates into the Moon is in between two signs which creates delays, stagnation and frustation. During those hours, you may now see why there are late starts, false starts and glitches. Now you can prepare for these things. Cool huh?

I also added something NEW! to the Transits and Progressions. Now all Transits and Progressions are available through e-mail. Instead of having a CD mailed to you with this information, which use to take several days, I will now e-mail you the entire file within 24 hours and usually the same day.

I have also added 1 Month Transits and Progressions to the list. These are personal daily horoscopes for nearly every hour of the day tailored to your birth information. Keep in mind, the daily horoscopes that I write on this site are 'in general' for an entire sign, which is an entire population of people. The Transits and Progressions are incredibly accurate and informative. If you have ordered the Transits and Progressions, please remember that you should be calling me so that we can have a short conversation on how to use this report in your daily Life. This phone call is included in your report and if I were you, I would take advantage of the call.

Have a fantabulous Labor Day weekend as your summer comes to a close. I am prepared to write all kinds of wonderful goodies and nuggets in the up and coming Daily Messages. I can hardly wait!!!
