The dog ate my homework… I had all kinds of troubles getting this newsletter out, one of which I could have avoided if I’d remembered to take probiotics before getting on a plane last Monday. When I forget to do that, I come down with whatever bug is going around in the lands of my fellow travelers. Invest in a week of pre-travel probiotics, vacationers!
Speaking of travel, I had a reassuring experience last week in Nevada City when I attended the 80th birthday party of my old friend Ed Buryn, author of “Vagabonding in the U.S.A.” and creator of the William Blake Tarot deck. It was impossible to imagine that Ed could be 80, but I didn’t really have to: Rasputin-like, he seemed to possess the same level of energy he had in San Francisco in the ’70′s. Maybe we don’t all have to get old the way we expect, and maybe I’ll be dancing my ass off at 80, too! At the party, Ed read a great and very long poem about reaching such a venerable age… here it is on my blog for your enjoyment.
I’m excited to announce a new kind of workshop at the end of June, “Unleash Your Intuition and Reach Your Goals”. It’s an evening and two days, an expansion of the circle work that includes shamanic practices and exciting creative processes.
Although the weather has been all over the place (it was freezing today!), Santa Fe will be extra-delightful this Summer. This year there are even more free music concerts, festivals, art happenings, and new restaurants opening. Not to mention the surprise of TWO Indian Markets at the same time, one a breakaway from the traditional S.W.A.I.A. event. I’ll be here throughout the season enjoying it all, and I hope to see some of you here. There’s a new Drury hotel opening the end of July just down the street from me on East Palace, across from where I do circles. They’ll probably have grand opening specials…
Have a wonderful month,

Psychic Messages and Suggestions for a Successful June 2014
Success comes to those who work at it, and can deal with the obstacles June presents. It can be stressful and kind of tough to get things done, although it’s an inspiring time for creative ideas.
The general guidance is to not get into it with anybody or anything. Don’t engage in a fight around what’s wrong with the system or individual. Don’t expect people and institutions to behave differently than they do. If you’re an individual, be on the lookout for exit points from conflict-prone situations. But if there are no exit points and you are a nation or race or gender, it will only be huge protests and united grassroots organizations that can go up against the powers that be. Fights get a lot bigger in the future.
The important retrogrades in June 2014: Four planets are retrograde in June including Mercury. June 7-July 1st. With that many retrogrades, it’s a natural omen telling people to slow down and do things carefully. Also, the kind of projects people are into in June tend to require extra planning and preparation, and going slow but steady will work the best.
It’s an excellent time to revise plans and do any re-doing that needs done. Now we can get pointed in a more successful direction.
You don’t often see the conclusion of things in Mercury retrograde periods. If a person doesn’t see concrete signs of success in June, they should remember how far they’ve come, rather than focus on what hasn’t happened yet. The stars can cause us to vacillate between optimism and doubt about our big goals. Whatever you’re trying to accomplish, try working through the mood swings.
Mercury retrograde in Cancer puts a focus on your home, the past, and family. It’s a good time to reconnect with your roots. Cancer rules the stomach, and you can feel what’s truly important to you more keenly. In the way Mercury retrograde has us look inward, you gain insight into how you’ve grown and changed, and how much you’ve stayed the same.
Neptune retrograde June 9th-November 6th: The dates suggest a lot of duplicitous activity around the U.S. mid-term elections. (Note on June 9th: I wrote this two weeks ago, before the outrageous deal announced today, the Republican bribe Dem. Phillip Puckett took to sell out disadvantaged Virginians.) It’s easy for political machines to be nefarious and behind-the-scenes-vicious with Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Yet that same influence can make individuals experience exciting breakthroughs in their personal and spiritual development. Neptune retrograde is an easier time to become attuned to subtle energies, their hidden creativity, and Nature.
June Horoscopes for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth signs
Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius:, Fire signs: Start stuff! Start stuff! You conquer your domain in new ways. Brush off doubt as you figure out how to manifest a goal, even though how is probably not an answered question this month. “Fitting into the world” is a theme you explore. Reach out this month, it’s empowering.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: You get looser and lighten up. New places and faces shine down on you…say yes to life and smile back! This is a month of gaining experience away from home and in beneficial environments. There’s something happier about the plans you’re making and your general outlook on life.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: Something great, fun, and creative has a lot of complications leading up to it. Things are both screwed up and straightened out, and you can thank Mercury retrograde for this, which goes to the very end of the month. Expect adjustments and plan changes, but everything works out.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn. Earth signs: You know something that makes you feel safe; life is beginning to feel more solid. Your dreams have you imagining far into the future, and what you are picturing takes quite awhile to manifest. This month, however, don’t expect a lot of evidence of how good things can be.
