Santa Fe is nearing the epicenter of its Summer cultural explosion, and the sounds of daily goings-on waft up from the Plaza. July’s big event is the International Folk Art Mart (…be at the opening dress parade and dance at the Railyard Thursday night!) although, now every month seems to have more celebrations. And more new music venues, even free concerts way down on Cerrillos Road!
Another neat new addition to gatherings aound town are food trucks selling some excellent food, especially the one from the Street Food Institute.
Coming in August is the highly anticipated Indian Market, held for the first time in history by two different organizations, one being a break-away of Native Americans who want to run their own show. That new one is called the Indigenous Fine ArtMarket or IFAM, and will be held at the Railyard. It kicks off with an interesting-sounding event called a “Glow Dance Party” on August 20th at the Den.
My July began with something new, a three day Creative Journey workshop. It was fun and exciting and kind of like being in magic camp. I’ll be doing more circles and workshops soon, when I catch up with myself. Dreaming up magical and healing things to do with people is very exhilarating! And challenging in the same way private sessions used to be challenging: following what I receive, and not what I conceive.
I can’t imagine a better place to do this work than Santa Fe, people are refreshed by a lot of different factors unique to the area. I’ll post participants’ comments on my website’s workshop page.
I hope you have a delightful Summer wherever you are, happy trails and may they take you to pleasant surprises.

Spiritual Guidance and Horoscopes for July and Summer 2014
A lot happens in July, it’s a long and eventful month. For individuals and countries, fateful decisions and directions begin to shape up, potentially life-changing.
Best goal: Get Healthy
Best action to take: Suspend self-doubt for one month and surrender to your heart’s desire. Don’t stop yourself in July.
Meet new friends! Meet new friends!
Jupiter in Leo: July 16th-August 15th. From inner growth to outer…hearts open, individual people doing great things make a big impact, and people gain new courage to be themselves.
Here’s a poem from the spirit of Jupiter in Cancer, where it’s been for the last year, causing people to grow up emotionally:
(Jupiter in Cancer sez about moving from Cancer to Leo):
“Didn’t you get more free?
Didn’t you get more free with me?
Aren’t you glad it’s over?
Now you can be that rover,
Winging it towards new dreams.”
These last days of Jupiter in Cancer (up until July 16th), make peace with somebody! Let go of a hurt, release the past, be your Bigger Self.
At some point between the June and July newsletters, I posted an article about Summer, (the Here it is from my blog:
Psychic Guidance for Summer Success
This is a “go for it” Summer where what you want, and believe you are supposed to be doing, requires breaking through your own limitations and displaying more flexibility. Go For It! There is no better time to follow your own drumbeat and re-direct yourself onto a meaningful path. Here is more specific guidance to ensure your personal success:
Keep up with what’s in progress, and take care of unfinished business. (The Summer beginning when Mercury is retrograde suggests it’s not a great time to begin something brand new, but to maintain what you’ve already started.)
Embrace the Unknown:
Expect obscurity and murkiness to mark the beginning of your progress through this Summer’ objectives. People walk themselves out of tight situations by their willingness to change and endure uncertainty.
Call on your Guides: The potential for spiritual development is high, so if you ever wanted to experiment with just what kind of help is personally available to you, try calling on your spiritual guides this summer! It’s as simple as being curious and receptive and willing to expand your circle of support. Let yourself be empty and in the present, have an open heart, and permit whatever has your best interests in mind to give you a message.
July Psychic Messages for the Astrological Signs
This month’s divination experiment: A couple of months ago I wrote about Stonehenge, and how it may have been used to attune people to a larger consciousness. (The New York Times published an article June 16th, about newly discovered
Perhaps I was influenced by learning that, because in a horoscope-making session for July’s newsletter, a new way of getting messages spontaneously ocurred: by making a tone. I would make a little melody or tone for each element and astrological sign, and then I’d get a message. (I’m assuming the messages are relevant to the signs; please tell me, dear reader, if they are not!) What follows is what I got this new way, except for the Air signs-their message was the first one and came through the Speaking Stones.) Below this set are more July horoscopes done in more usual ways.
Fire signs: Aries is fired up, saying, “I really want this, I really want this-your determination is awesome. Leo: You’re happy and stronger, but you’ll be happier if you don’t go to extremes, and come to love being able to function with a steady strong pulse, and not a wildly vacillating one. Be smart, calm, strong, wise, and willing to change. Sagittarius: You’re focused and could be in a hurry to reach your goals. Spiritual experiences are enlighting if you’re willing to go off on your own and have a vision and be out of context for awhile. Spiritual growth is a pleasant journey now. Seek new connections-a new goal can be realized in November. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Water signs are capable of seeing deep truths now. Cancer: I’m happier than usual, yay! Scorpio: High flying! Wheeling and dealing! Excitement abounds…Pisces: What’s new stretches you, but then you have had past lives that are now inner resources; inherent ability is yours and comes through. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: There’s a lot of activity around home for you this month, and it will feel like a safe haven. Knowing your limits is another way to create a safe haven. You’ll need to recharge many times, especially around July 18th. Your creativity takes on a life of its own, and you’ll get signs from the world about concerning where it can take you. (Message from the Speaking Stones)
Earth signs: Taurus: Breakthrough! Positive! Hopeful…and you see a higher place for yourself. (Just wait, it’s coming!) Virgo: You should be plowing into something new, and overturning old connections for what’s valuable. Money and commerce are on your mind. Capricorn: Expect a huge growth spurt in July, it could even be astonishing. (Message from making tones for each sign).
Spiritual Guidance for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs for July 2014
(I actually forgot I’d already written horoscopes for July, the week before my three-day Creative Journey workshop on June 29th. I did the ones below on July 1st):
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: Take it easy. Stop worrying about the future, and take care of stuff that obviously needs to be taken care of. Keep taking care of things and don’t worry where it leads to. This is a month not to doubt yourself. You cannot see the future right now and don’t try to-focus on improving your health, if you don’t see anything else that needs doing.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: An old identity is all used up. It is absolutely clear you can move into the future with a stronger Self. Now you can do things you couldn’t do before. A new chapter has conclusively begun and calls on new courage and character, which you now have. You can count on yourself to go the distance in a new direction.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air sgns: Some problems are over! You get to graduate; there is a way to a place you belong and it makes you happier. Excellent signs for marriage and in general being fulfilled in new roles.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Earth signs: You establish yourself in new digs, or change your environment to make it reflect what moves you. It’s hard to do anything now but what is heartfelt. You are pushed in new directions by your own evolutionary impulses. Keep on going, everything’s fine.
