me the tropics anyday! Global warming you say? We can all do our
part by traveling less - even so, I do hope you're taking life easy,
and finding time to enjoy family and friends. We'll be watching the
worm races and partaking of the carnival rides and treats with our
little girl at the local fair the first day of July. Hope you're
having fun too!

to Treat your Cancer
Cancer man or maiden is an especially kind and nurturing soul.
Cancers are observant and empathetic. Just as the Moon fills with
light from the Sun, your oceanic Cancer absorbs energy from those
around her, deeply feeling their needs and desires. Your Cancer, like
a warm mama, loves to fulfill you and make you comfortable. Home,
food, garden, nursery, work - all become the loving charge of
Cancer's love and care. Sometimes your Cancer becomes overwhelmed
with concern for others, and needs to take refuge in a protective
shell to be shielded from negative influences. You may find your
Cancer either hiding out or complaining sadly. It's just that he is
filled to the brim with external woes, and just can't please
everyone. Such a frustration!
Cancer, the Moon who rules over his heart waxes and wanes, grows
full with wild lunatic ravings and joy, and shrinks into that dark
place where brooding and sulking can set in. Emotions are inconstant,
but so entertaining for the lucky one who has a Cancer for a friend
Cancer needs to feel needed. Don't hesitate to ask your Cancer for
help, even if she seems downhearted. It makes her feel alive. Be sure
to confide your deepest feelings and desires to your Cancer. It gives
him the opportunity to be more a part of you, and strive to fulfill
your Cancer with a well stocked kitchen, room for a garden, pets,
cozy decor and children. Take your Cancer to the water or ocean
often. Allow your Cancer opportunities to use the deep imagination
and creativity within. Be kind and patient when the Moon wreaks havoc
on his moods. Make sure your Cancer has privacy when needed, and
feels safe and protected. Screen his calls! Make sure her locks are
secure! You will be rewarded with joyful, shining moonbeam smiles,
and loving comforts of home to rival the most doting of mothers!

to Treat your Leo
Leo is independent - yet family oriented; highly organized and
efficient - yet demanding of others. Leo is King or Queen of the
castle, and wants everyone to know it! Shining brightly through that
magnificent mane is a great joy for living... a completely self-contained
world of fun and creativity. Leo wants the outer world to be just as
shiny as she strives to be, and will go to any lengths to achieve it.
Leo needs to be happy with how the world perceives him. If enough
praise is not forthcoming, you will have a sulky, growly lion! Make
sure you take time to compliment, heavily. And please don't criticize
overtly - make sly little helpful suggestions instead. Leo is very
sensitive, but bounces back easily because he can't stand
unhappiness. Life is too fun, and creative opportunities too tempting
for Leo to be out of the action for long.
that you are part of your Sun-God or Goddess' world. Your reputation
is just as important to your Leo as her own. Do your best to look
good, sound dignified and make your space organized and attractive.
Sweep the dirt out of public view, and don't forget to comb your hair!
your Leo with joyful, sunny surroundings, the laughter of children,
organized spaces and free-time to roam. Keep competition far away
from your very territorial animal. Shower her with cuddly affection,
your undying love and devotion, and most of all PRAISE. You will be
rewarded with a glowing soul whose heart radiates with blissful
devotion to your needs. Your Leo is sure to passionately love, defend
and protect you. It's his job!

Chariot in the Tarot
is associated with the Chariot in Tarot.
at him go! He's rounding the corner with ease! Has he won the race?
Or is he just beginning, or maybe in the middle of it? This card
often signifies a triumph - but no contest is ever completely won. We
are constantly moving forward - there is always another goal up ahead.
horses pulling the Chariot, one black and one white, are wild,
instinctive animals. Harnessed by the skillful hand of a charioteer,
their accuracy is dependent upon his poise, confidence, intelligence
you go through the motions of life, you may sometimes ask yourself -
who's driving this vessel? Is it the conscious me, is it these crazy
feelings coursing through me, or could it be the untamed forces of my
subconscious? Am I leading the way, or am I being led? Do I have the
ultimate say in my destiny? Where the heck am I headed, anyway??!!!
follows that this card is all about Control - over the extremes of
dark and light within your soul, over base emotional reactions, and
over others who might entice you away from your true path.
symbolism in the Chariot is deceptively simple - the Charioteer is
the mind and the higher self, the horses are the instincts and
emotions, and the Chariot itself is the body - your vessel. Are you
truly in charge of where you're going?

Attitude, Touch & Massage for Health
have recently come into possession of two books that I have found to
be extremely valuable - and which I especially recommend for anyone
suffering with any kind of ill health. Energy Medicine and the
Energy Medicine Kit by Donna Eden and Life Energy by John
Diamond both describe the human energy system - the meridians and
chakras - and give us simple tools to energize, clear and balance our
energy. Donna's book and kit (includes a dvd, cd, cards &
booklet) give hands on, easy and quick techniques, and John's deals
with emotion and attitude. He shows how our feelings directly affect
specific meridians and organs of the body, and provides simple
affirmations for working with healing illness.
am enjoying exploring these two texts, and as I learn the systems
described I find that, much like learning Astrology, even a little
bit of knowledge can be very beneficial!

from Venus & Mars... July 2006
in Gemini... June 25 to July 19 is witty and aware, quick and
possibly flighty in her affections, and sure to please you with her
humor! Everyone may be more inclined to use their skills to make both
home and work spaces more cheery and bright. Go for short outings,
visit with friends, and make the most of this energy by keeping it
interesting. This is a good time to reconnect with old friends as well.
in Leo...June 3 to July 23 is a proud, commanding warrior king.
He is likely to insist on having his own way, though he will take
family into consideration. With this Mars, the animal passion in all
of us is likely to be unleashed. Be careful of overindulgences. This
Mars goes well with Venus in Gemini - fire and air tend to create
more fire. If you have ideas you want to put into action, this is a
great time to act!
in Cancer...July 20 - August 12 and Mars in Virgo... July
23 - Sept. 8 bring emotional/earthy energy to the lover planets
during the last week in July. I suggest capitalizing on this energy
by organizing the household, gardening, mending and making family
plans. In love, all will go well if you make family and
responsibilities you first priority! If painful memories surface or
small irritations get to you, take a dose of mother-earth energy...
take a walk, smell the flowers, enjoy what you have with gratitude,
and delight in life!
