Important Dates: September5th, Teachers’ Day; 6th, Labor Day; 11th, Patriot Day; September 15-October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month; 16th World Ozone Day and International Day for Preservation; 22nd, Rose Day (welfare of cancer patients); and the 29th, International Heart Day. Look up a particular month’s list of holidays on line. I just picked out a few of the choices. There are so many that I’m sure we never even heard of!
Spirit Energy in Trees
Trees have very special spirits and should be considered as intelligent energy fields and not just trees. Ancient myths spoke of Oak Tree spirits or entities that guarded the person living on the property. Being I had 48 red oaks on my property, and I felt very blessed and protected.
Plant trees on your property for good chi (or positive energy). Keep them pruned and healthy. Many nurseries can tell you which birds inhabit specific trees, so if you want to attract more wildlife into your yard or area, consult a professional. Otherwise, any tree can be a home to a host of birds who live in this part of the country or who are passing through on their way to migratory destinations. Birds always bring positive energy to your home, so feed them frequently and keep clean water in a bird bath that they can use each day. The fluttering of their wings moves the stagnant negative energy that may be on your property. Also, remember chimes or windsocks are a good remedy to promote healthy chi as well.
Live plants, flowers and trees are fundamental to good Feng Shui. The prettier the plant or flower, the nicer the energy that flows towards your home and family. Be mindful of the flower colors you chose for each area of your yard. Following the bagua’s suggestion of color is always helpful and preferred. If this is impossible to do, especially with varied bulbs, put them in a bucket and mix them up and plant them all over the yard. In this way, your yard will be protected by all the colors of the bagua. In this way, you have many colors in all areas in your yard. There are many good sales for greenery at this time of the year; perhaps you should look at what is available.
Be mindful that trees or high bushes should not be in a direct line with your front door as it keeps opportunities and prospects from ever reaching your home. And, the more color you place around the yard, the more in tune you will be with Feng Shui and Mother Nature. Don’t forget the bird bath in line with your front door. In Feng Shui, water is money. Every time you open the front door, the financial “intention” is activated. Always a welcomed visitor to our homes.

|Retrograde Planets||Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all month; Uranus goes Rx on the 20th. (With all of these planets in retrograde, life will seem challenging, so you must be very determined not to let these planets force you into being depressed, angry, irritated, rundown, disheartened, dejected, unhappy or a myriad of other negative feelings. We can only control how we react to situations. So, try to look at the positive side of life as many these Rxs will be with us until February, 2022.)|
|Sun goes into Virgo on August 23.|
ARIES – March 21 – April 19
Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together. If you handle limitations, responsibilities and obligations will only be resolved IF you use your logic and intelligence. Your friends will back you up with any of your decisions. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the dreadful past year behind and are ready for new adventures and possibly a small getaway. You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems as they want to give you, their support. Take it.
TAURUS – April 20 – May 20
You are doing what you can to make financial situations in these areas as positive as possible; worrying won’t change anything. There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move. Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings and you don’t trust too many people with your emotions. Chose someone to confide in so that you will be sharing your burdens or at least get another perspective to your issues.
GEMINI – May 21 – June 21
Training and formal education is highlighted including metaphysical subjects or any area of interest. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction to go. Expanding your business and networking is always a good idea. (As one teacher used to say, “Is your net working?”) There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to help with your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies. Yes, we all get tired, but if you schedule room in your busy life for the theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special events, etc., you will be able to decide things with a clearer mind and goals that are very attainable.
CANCER – June 22 – July 22
Time to make good choices. You will then see how fast you progress on the right path of prosperity and opportunities. You attract many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions in life, business and family. Even though you may have to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation.
LEO – July 23 – August 22
There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are activities that you wish to participate in. You have so much to accomplish, but may be planning to do it all later since the nice weather is upon us. Do one or two things daily to get ahead of your responsibilities faster and you will see how much you have accomplished by the end of the week. You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative way and may also be bringing that energy in to your romantic life, so just enjoy.
VIRGO – August 23 – September 22
Many decisions need to be made, so think about them carefully before deciding those important decisions. Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan. Friends are important now, so make sure you know who your true friends are. Weeding out those who exhaust you would be in your best interest. One of the lessons you should learn now is that friends will give you reciprocal energy and help you whenever you need assistance rather than always taking from you. You will be setting up more boundaries and limitations from being taken advantage of from others. Bravo.
LIBRA – September 23 – October 23
Thinking in a chaotic way will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things to please others. Be strong and stand up for yourself. Being decisive will be extremely important. Even though you do not have an easy time making decisions, it is imperative that you stop procrastinating and make important decisions about your life and those close to you. Be assertive, take risks and move forward. Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible. Pick a direction and stay the course.
SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22
There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly. Finances may be strained or you are saving for an object or project that is very important to you. Nevertheless, you should budget your money carefully and only spend what you deem appropriate for the things you want. Being very determined and persistent will help you get what you want, but you really have to be serious about your wishes. Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members.
SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21
You have so many good intentions and plans that may be thwarted on some level. You seem to have so many responsibilities and obligations, but once you handle these situations, you will have more time to concentrate on your leisure time activities and fun. Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life. It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on. Some areas of change may be your job, moving from your home to a new location, and perhaps finding new partners if that’s what you want.
CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20
Home and business life needs more balance. Your job and its problems should be kept at the workplace so when you come home, you can spend more time with your family or romantic partner. They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives. Home life and family can be challenging and there is just so much going on that it makes you a bit confused about your next steps. Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work projects, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy.
AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18
Career choices and home life seem to be at odds again. You’ve taken on too many responsibilities and your health may suffer if you don’t get the relaxation needed. A bit more rest and relaxation will do wonders for your stamina and general overall health. Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property. You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now. You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is.
PISCES – February 19 – March 20
Love life can make you crazy if you let it, but if you use your intellect and common sense you will be able to handle anything that comes your way. Be very clear about your intent and let people know that you want to quickly resolve any unfinished business. Many changes seem to follow you around and you’re not quite sure what to do. Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change. Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
