TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1 – The latest astrological update from Astrograph.com…
The Last Quarter Moon taking place on Wednesday, October 19, represents a time of contemplation, a pause amidst the maelstrom of events and realizations that have been the norm over the past three weeks of this powerful cycle. This phase of the lunation cycle is a time when we take stock of what has been occurring in our lives and attempt to make sense of it all, distilling what we can into the seed of wisdom with which we begin the next cycle, kicked off by the Scorpio New Moon later in the month. Meanwhile, Uranus and Pluto remain within a few degrees of a perfect square with each other, and Jupiter retrogrades into aspect with first Pluto and then Uranus before turning to direct motion in late December. As Jupiter moves into a trine with Pluto, the Sun and Moon positively aspect Neptune, currently in the last degrees of Aquarius, bringing a strong hit of idealism into the picture. Mars is also emphasized in this configuration by its aspects from Mercury and Venus, as he makes a sesquiquadrate to both Uranus and Pluto, highlighting the concept of action as well as of contemplation.
At this important juncture, the Sun and Moon, in square with each other, occupy the 27th degree of Libra and of Cancer respectively. The Sabian symbols for these degrees are revealing: ”An airplane hovering in the clear sky” and, for the Moon, ”A storm in a canyon.” Marc Edmond Jones gives as his keyword for the first symbol Reflection, while Dane Rudhyar speaks of Transcendent Realization, and indeed it is time and past time to think our way through the crisis of the present moment. Only by an increase in consciousness will the future be saved. The concentration of energy represented by the second symbol of a storm flooding through a narrow canyon speaks to the intensity of these climactic days leading up to 2012. Our actions need to count now for the leisure of hesitation is rapidly passing.
These ideas apply to the transformation of the collective that we live in, as the Uranus–Pluto square nears its first exact completion – in of next year – and to our personal lives as well. We are on the cusp of change, as a society and as individual members of that society, and our actions must be carefully considered for they are crucial to the eventual outcome that we seek. Gandhi perhaps said it best, and it rings even truer today: Be yourself the change that you look for in the world around you, and do not vacillate or wait for someone else to take up the challenge.
# 2 – And speaking of astrology, if you aren’t familiar with Rob Brezsny’s weekly column, you’re missing a fun, informative read that you can get delivered right to your in-box. Also check out “Pronoia” (the opposite of paranoia :-)), based on all the positive resources Rob mentions each week.
# 3 – An excerpt from an article about money by Michelle Barr from her Sacred Success Ezine…
What are your current thoughts and feelings about money? About your value? Your worth? About what you charge others in exchange for using your gifts? About receiving money for spiritual work?
You see, when I experienced negative charges around these issues, I ended up running a very expensive hobby which ran both me and my business into the ground. I had to close the doors. Then I had to face the pain of not doing my work.
Too many of you are having similar experiences. I see it all around me in my community, with my clients and students and some of my colleagues.
Now, here’s something that might shock you, so hold on to your seat! Whatever is your gift from Spirit, you should actually be charging the most for. It is what you are here to do.
Here’s another thing. People value what they pay for. Have you ever given away free sessions? I have, and the people who received them didn’t have the same amazing results as those who had invested in themselves by paying money for what they received. They didn’t show up for themselves and do the work in the same way. And, often – and this one’s a heartbreaker – they went to someone else who they did pay.
I see so many healers and people who come from the heart and want to give that have these issues come up. I was one of them. I worked with many others of them.
There is so much healing that needs to be done in our community and our industry around these issues.
Have you yourself or anyone you know expressed their distaste for or distrust of people who have money? It is Universal Law that you can never become that which you resist or have negative feelings for. You will not allow yourself to become it. Think about that! What feelings and beliefs do you have about “rich people?” About people “with money?”
Your spiritual work is not something you are meant to do on the side, something to try to make time for, while you struggle to make a living doing something you don’t love. It is what you are meant to be living, all the time.
Know this, that the issues that are coming up for you around money and your work are very probably the things that are holding you back. These things, once you move through them, will bring you the very rewards you seek. Cool, huh?
Recently at an event, Jeffrey Van Dyk asked me, “What are you putting a stake in the ground for? What really keeps you up at night? What is getting to you?” And this is it!
These are the issues that are keeping all you Healers, Spiritual Teachers, and Coaches from creating the success you need to do your work in the world in a way that supports you, and it’s keeping you from creating the success you deserve.
The tide is turning around spirituality and money. Many now believe that the path to making money doing what we love and using our gifts while being paid well is the utmost spiritual journey. Money is simply energy, and for those of us who live and work spiritually, it’s spiritual energy.
The tide is turning. Will you be a part of that wave?
Your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes will determine your success. Your mindset about money will drive your business and your life. We have collectively given money that much power.
Isn’t it time we brought more money into the hands of those with more heart? Think what this could do for the world.
Many of the successful Spiritual Entrepreneurs I know are doing great works all over the world. The money they make in their businesses allow them to do this. Imagine what you yourself could do! Start looking around you for these new messages. Immerse yourself in them. Begin to focus on them. Shift your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes.
No more poverty consciousness in our community. We call now for wealth consciousness. Envision it. Embrace it. Embody it. Claim it for yourself.
# 4 – If you haven’t signed up for the Healing With the Masters series, you’ve really been missing some great interviews. Elizabeth Jones recently gave a great presentation on the role Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are playing in all the current inner and outer shifts going on in the world.
# 5 – I recently discovered this FREE telesummit that started Oct 12th and runs for a month. Right now I am listening to the replay of Dr. Dain Heer of Access Consciousness and having all sorts of “ah-ha moments.”

# 6- And an interesting and insightful take on world peace from Abraham….
“World peace means one mindset big enough to make the decisions about what everybody else wants and the rest of the world conforming. That is the ultimate definition of world peace. You say, “Oh, let’s get along!” And what each of you mean is, “You do what I want.” A peaceful world means, “Everybody wanting what I want. Going along with what I want.” And the only problem with that is: there are more than one of you, and you have endless desires that are born within you. The ultimate experience is everyone having their experience and launching their individual rockets of desire, and the Universe yielding to all of them simultaneously. And everybody not worrying about what anybody else created, and so, then allowing what they are wanting. What a world that is, when there are endless desirers—who are allowing the fulfillment of their own desires.”–Abraham
Best wishes, “Zippy”
p.s. If you are looking for a way to fortify yourself against possible radiation and other toxic substances, you may want to check out my website’s What’s New page for information about a superfood that is a superior blend of 7 whole-food sea vegetables. I did some research after hearing about it at Natural News and was impressed with both the product and company. The product supplies all your body’s daily nutritional needs, plus offers natural protection from
radiation and other toxic substances. The company adheres to universal principles in the way the business is run and is dedicated to giving back to the community through Feeding America and offering fund-raising opportunities to non-profits across the U.S. That’s my kind of win-win-win situation! You can also get updated information about radiation and iodine, plus two free reports,
one on weight loss, the other on glutathione and anti-aging. Check out my What’s New page, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know more.
