It’s getting cold here in at night in New Mexico, time for soup and sweaters! I don’t know if the traditional Jewish cure-all, chicken soup, is a match for whatever might be attacking us these days, but recently I tasted a version so delicious and healing-feeling, I want to share it with you. It was featured at AHA, the new progressive arts festival in Santa Fe, in the “Japanese/Jewish Market” booth. It’s hard to imagine an improvement on matzo ball soup, but this is it! From artist Sydney Cooper, please enjoy her Miso Matzo Ball Soup printed below.
In other healing-related news, I’m looking forward to learning from some amazing practitioners next week. One is Dr. Adam McLeod up in Canada – I want to experience his group healings, where he works with hundreds of people at once.
Another practitioner helping lots of people change was in the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know”: Dr. Joseph Dispenza. His new book “You are the Placebo”, is full of fascinating research experiments and true stories, and is convincing, detailed and hopeful about exactly what it takes to change.
Have a wonderful October, Mazel tov!

October 2014 Psychic Astrology
The Libra Sun says: “Hey, I’m casual for protection, I’m purposefully mellow…because then I remember to make space for all the things that create balance: having fun with people, enjoying nature and its beauty…and one of the greatest shields against The Blessed Revolutions of our time and all their diseases, is to feel a sense of balance in your own life.”
Heads Up: Mercury retrograde October 4-25th: ”A stitch in time saves nine.” It is economic to take care…You might have to do things over again if not done right the first time. During this period, in some major way you are called upon to get things right and balanced out.
October 8th: It’s a full moon lunar eclipse in Aries, signifying that everyone is going to want it their way. People rise up and speak up on their own behalf, needing very little provocation to act. Individuals with no internal blocks because they believe in what they’re doing at this particular time, can be like a cannon ball and shoot forward.
October 23rd: It’s a new moon solar eclipse in Scorpio, the beginning of a two week cycle that calls upon personal strength. People can bear what they need to and hear what they need to, to move forward. It is a natural time to zero in on what’s important, and make informed and elegant plans. In a couple of days when Mercury goes direct, plans unfold more quickly.
This astrological info from a previous article about the Fall Equinox is still relevant in October:
“The astrological framework (for September 24th to mid-October) is a new moon in Libra, marking the beginning of a good couple of weeks to get effective support and into helpful partnerships. Libra rules partnership, and in October, the spirits say: There’s only time for being a good partner in October: A good partner to yourself…supportive, your mind working to manifest your heart’s desires; as in understanding, a good and active partner to what you think is important, i.e. helping to get out the mid-term vote; and a good partner to the very closest people in your life, because that’s all there’s time for!
Pluto going direct on the Fall equinox has a marked outer negative expression, and marked inner positive expression. People such as extremists who are vengeance-minded feel an accelerated need to get their just desserts. In positively-oriented individuals, they are empowered to find new success with programs or processes for personal transformation. Progress becomes visible where it’s been like moving boulders. At any rate, people get on with the constructing of what they feel frees them.”
October Spiritual Guidance
Plant Yourself. Get settled. Plant yourself comfortably wherever you are, root yourself by getting things arranged well. It will feel good to do that when the Sun’s in Libra! Fill your heart with satisfaction and appreciation for your own doings for yourself; get organized. Be relieved of the past as you organize around a better-settled self.
TWO KEYS TO OCTOBER SUCCESS:
Be honest in all your dealings.
Practice MODERATION, as in “avoid extremes of behavior.”
FALL 2014 PSYCHIC HOROSCOPES: READ YOUR SUN, MOON, AND RISING SIGNS
What is your Cooperative Act for Fall Success? What particular action can people take this Fall to create the life they want?
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: Success will come when you let go of self doubt and just do stuff, and not worry about if it will be successful. Trust in your creativity.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: You have to sacrifice your old vision of partnership to one where relationships are more balanced. Rejoice in the healthy boldness of daring to dream and plan for what you want.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: It’s hard to think in terms of sacrifice and air signs this Fall, because they keep on showing me how happy they are! You could be offered opportunities that are right up your alley! Seize the day-it has a positive outcome.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: You may have to consider ways to let go of how you’ve done things or organized your life. The future calls for re-organization!
