APRIL/MAY ASTROLOGICAL UPDATE

by Marci McCaffery

Astrologer Marci McCaffery

What is distracting us?  Is it fear, ego, old energy patterns from the past?  Often, it is in our discomfort, that we are moved to heightened levels of self-awareness. This year we are given powerful opportunities to clear the old and redefine the new.  The more we continue our spiritual practices, the more we can listen to the small inner voice that guides us forward.  We must be intentional in our prayers, as we become more aware of what is truly essential.  We must be fearless, as we move beyond our personal limitations, to embrace the dreams that await us. The planetary influences for April and May emphasize this concept, as we embrace the freshness of the Spring Season and all things anew.

On April 7th, Pluto in Capricorn turns retrograde until Sept 14th, giving us the opportunity to transcend our inner conflicts concerning authority, our careers, and our goals, as well as overcome our fears and limitations. Saturn the ruler of Capricorn, is still retrograde, as it transits back through the sign of Virgo. Health and employment/unemployment issues continue to be the topic of concern.  We should see a shift, as the energies synchronize, when Saturn turns direct on May 30th.

On April 14th, the Aries New Moon brings forth initiating energies to boldly take action. However, just as we become acclimated, Mercury begins its backward, retrograde journey through the signs of Aries and Taurus  on April 18th. We gain greater insights on how to create new beginnings, as we finish up old projects.  During this retrograde period, we are given a chance to reassess how to better implement the new to incorporate our true values. Mercury turns direct on May 12th. Venus, the co-ruler of Libra and Taurus, moves into the light-hearted, playful sign of Gemini on April 25th. This is a good time to explore the way we communicate in our relationships with others. Creativity is yearning for expression through color, the written word and the visual impact, when Venus is Gemini.  We are asked to let go of issues of low self esteem and concerns about money. Opening up to creativity is how we

manifest.  Write the words Play, Love and Create on your calendars, as a reminder.  On April 28th, the Full Moon in Scorpio prompts us to transmute old hurts and hidden resentments through emotional release. It is important to transcend, transform and “let go”.  As we free others through forgiveness, we free ourselves.

As the Sun plods along through the sign of Taurus, we may find ourselves confronting stubborn tendencies and resistance to change. The New Moon in Taurus on May 13th suggests patience, persistence and determination. The Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in aspect to Neptune and opposing Saturn in late May serves to intensify our need to change. It will be crucial to embrace the New (Uranus) Vs the Old (Saturn) established way of doing things. This marks the fourth phase of the Uranus/Saturn opposition which began with the 2008 elections. We are now better prepared through the initial phases of this configuration to take the necessary steps to move forward. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 27th calls for us to become visionaries as we follow disciplined spiritual practice to open to new pathways as we create our lives anew.

Marcia McCaffery is a professional astrological counselor, Reiki Master and spiritual/holistic health advisor, with a private practice in the Denver area.

NEW CLASSES OFFERED

by Mario C. Veo

Meditations

BETTER MEDITATION – Esoteric Science Series. Meditation is the single, most powerful gift we can have in our life – it will make us healthy, grant us longevity, awaken psychic gifts, help us communicate with our Angels and Spirit Guides, release our Karmas, blockages and negativity, and promote our spiritual progress. Learn how to make your meditation the skillful tool to make you blossom. This class is offered from 7pm to 8:30pm on April 6 and 20. The cost is $20 for each session.

Gems & Crystals

Free Presentation on Sun Apr 11 at 2pm. ON GEMS & CRYSTALS & THE DEVAS WITHIN…and the POWER OF GUIDED MEDITATION with Mario C. Veo. Learn about the Devas of Gems and Crystals and how to create elixirs for blessings and protection; and how guided meditation can easily transform your life and manifest all you desire.

Amulet

AMULETS – for Blessing and Protection. Crystals can be very powerful magical tools when used in creating amulets. They each have an inherent quality or energy which must first be cleansed of commercial influences, then awakened and charged according to your intended purpose, and finally they must be attuned to a specific person or situation – only now will they be a true Amulet to manifest your desires, or protect you from negative and unwanted energies. This class is offered from 7pm to 8:30pm on April 13 and 27. The cost is $20 for each session.

Mudras and Mantras

MANTRAS AND MUDRAS – Esoteric Science Series. Mantras are often seen as Divine Invocations for they use sacred sounds to connect us with the highest energies of creation – as such they are very effective in creating any change we desire in our life (be this for healing, love relationship, wealth, prosperity, business blessings, or spiritual enlightenment). Mudras are hand and finger positions which connect various internal energy flows together. These internal flows (known as Nadis) affect all of our being – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – and through Mudras we can either stimulate or soothe these so as to bring about a state of balance and harmony to any aspect of our life. This class is offered from 7pm to 8:30pm on May 4 and 18. The cost is $20 for each session.

Free Presentation on Sunday May 9 at 2pm. ON KARMA, SPIRITUALITY AND HEALING with Mario C. Veo. Stop the struggles in you life…once and for all release your past and live your life joyfully!

Mario Veo

Om Sweet Om

KARMA, SPIRITUALITY AND HEALING. No healing can fully occur, and no true positive change can be introduced in our life until we understand both the original Karma which brought about our pain, trauma or disorder, AND what is our personal spiritual lesson that we must embrace before we can move on. Join us for a wonderful exploration of release, transformation and self-empowerment. This class is offered from 7pm to 8:30pm on May 11 and 25. The cost is $20 for each session.

HAUNTED OBJECTS AND GHOSTS

by Pam Nolte

A Doll To Love

My friend recently purchased a trunk without opening it at an estate sale. When she got it home and finally opened it, she found 3 creepy, very-lifelike, old dolls.  Not being a fan of dolls, she gave them away.  Now all of the people say that they are having experiences, like doors opening and closing by themselves, a feeling of constantly being watched and little kid laughter.  Curious, I went to check one of the houses out.
I’d been to her home prior to her getting that doll and it was clean. Maybe a gnome or two, but nothing dark or heavy.  This time was different.  I felt that doll from the minute I walked in. Was it the doll that caused the haunting? Can objects be haunted?  After getting the doll out of the house and doing a space clearing, the energy is once more back to the peacefulness that she loved.  So was it the doll or something else?

GHOSTS with Pam Nolte.
Part 1 of 2. Have you ever wondered why there is such a fascination with ghosts and other supernatural beings right now? Have you ever wondered what ghosts are or what creates a haunting? Are some areas more prone to hauntings than others? Join Pam to discuss this and more in an informative 2 hour talk with others of like-mind. Call 303-758-9113 to register. This class is offered from 7pm to 9pm on Monday, April 26. The cost is $20.

GHOSTS with Pam Nolte.
Part 2 of 2. You have a ghost. Now what? Do you call a paranormal investigator? Do you invest in holy water? Join me to discuss the options once you learn that you have a ghost or a haunting. Call 303-758-9113 to register. This class is offered from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, May 6. The cost is $20.

Pam Nolte is a medium and has seen ghosts all of her life and has pondered these questions and more in her metaphysical journey. She has been called in to mediate with spirit energy, as well as perform space clearings. Pam is a metaphysical teacher and reader in the Denver area.

DISCOVERING THE SACREDNESS Of

BREATH AND SOUND

with Phil Shiva Jones

A Spiritual Sound and Breath Meditation Workshop and Chanting Performance

Friday, April 23, 2010, 7 – 9:30 pm, $20.

Phil Shiva Jones

Visiting Australian interfaith minister and recording artist Phil Jones will present an interactive workshop teaching meditation and simple breathing techniques with the Australian didgeridoo. The didgeridoo is an ancient mesmerizing drone instrument made from a eucalyptus tree and traditionally played in ceremony and healing by the Aboriginal clans of Australia. Playing the didgeridoo creates soothing and resonant harmonics that easily erase the the ‘monkey chatter’ in the mind – enhancing mental clarity and emotional equanimity. The primordial vibration of the didgeridoo and the simple breathing techniques help create a state of relaxation, lower blood pressure, relax the heart, improve digestion, and – as reported by the British Medical Journal – significantly reduce sleep apnea and snoring.

Phil has been performing Sanskrit chants for over 40 years and will begin the evening with meditative chanting – setting up a wonderful vibrational atmosphere for the workshop, whereby the participants will be invited to tone and chant the OM mantra as he sings the chants to the accompaniment of a Shruti box (a traditional east Indian instrument).

No musical experience is necessary. All participants will be provided an instrument to play during the workshop. Instruments and meditation CD’s will be available to purchase after the workshop.

Phil studied seven years with an enlightened Hindu teacher (1968-1975) and parallels the didgeridoo, a non-denominational meditation accelerator, with Eastern Philosophy, New Thought, and Aboriginal Traditions. He was the lead singer and songwriter of the renowned English band Quintessence (Island Records/RCA), where he pioneered the merging of sacred Sanskrit mantras into a modern musical format during the late 1960′s and 1970′s (performing three concerts at the Royal Albert Hall and two at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London). An engaging interfaith minister and inspiring singer, he speaks and performs at churches and spiritual fellowships, universities, yoga studios and wellness centers across the USA. Phil has been a frequent guest presenter at Deepak Chopra’s Center for Well-Being, has appeared on radio (NPR, Sightings, etc) and television (The Wisdom Channel, ABC, FOX, CBS, NBC, BBC), and is featured performing and teaching the Australian didgeridoo on the IMAX DVD: ‘Sydney – A Story of a City.’
