Welcome to the month of Augustus Caesar, of warmth, mirth and the energy of Number 8!

In the words of Jude Adonne, an enlightened one in numerology, “The shape of 8, known as the LEMNISCATE, depicts the rhythm of energy that flows around and within two polar opposites. The Coarse-Material Realm is a reflection, the polar opposite of the Spiritual World…..The symbol of 8 is the infinity symbol, and is a vibration of great power, strength, endurance and stamina. It symbolizes the endless cycle of cause and effect, which generates the Laws of Karma and the cycle of Life in general.”

The pomp and lively ambience of August is symbolized by its birth flower and birth stone! Gladiolus or poppy, an enchanting ornamental plant (in post photo) is the month’s flower while, peridot or onyx is its birth stone! The stone is acclaimed in informed quarters as an excellent source of high frequency vibrations that can multiply wealth and increase health and joy, including all positive emotional states.

An added aura of grandeur to the month draws from the word “august”! Talk of an august event, august visit, august presence, august lineage, august personage, august performance, and you are painting a picture of somebody or something majestic, imposing, venerable and awe inspiring!

Little wonder why researchers say about 83% of male children named after months of the year is August related! Why not, who wouldn’t consider his/her child an ‘august gift’?

Happy birthdays to our August children, and Anniversary Greetings to our great Asian friends from India, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan whose countries’ National/Independence Days come up within the month!

May we all have “august experiences” throughout the month!

Happy New Month and enjoy this vintage August poem by Rhonda Baker:

“The birth of August is upon us, as the fair haired sun rises in the sky
With songs of the cicada unwinding, the sand hill Cranes sail by
The heat is hovering all around us, we feel heavy in its grip
To break free from its bonds, from its clutches we must rip
Shade gives little relief, to this melting, bending soul
A river full of water, is not enough to quench this foe
Only darkness breaks the curse, that the day could not hide
Relief is but short…and that too must subside
For August is just arriving, her journey’s just begun
It’s only just beginning; her moment in the sun”

Come May, sweet May, with all thy bloom,

31150373_955488517962550_1100583106152235008_n

 

 

Come May, sweet May, with all thy bloom,
Thy fragrant breezes, azure skies,
Come quickly to the waiting earth,
And bid its bidden treasures rise.
Give us again the song of birds,
The scent of blossoms on the air,
The rustle of the growing grass,
The dainty primrose, sweet and fair.

Oh! there are hearts that long to feel
Thy soft caress on cheek and brow;
Hearts grieving, that would fain be glad;
Come then, dear May, and teach them how.
Come, tell us of thy sister June,
What gifts from her shall follow thine?
Ah! roses red she wears for crown;
Bright May, thy primrose shall be mine.

All yellow o’er the grassy lane
The cowslips spread, and ‘neath thy skies
The sweet “May blossoms” in their beds,
With violets, ope their soft blue eyes.
Then come, come quickly, charming May,
Strew the broad earth with gifts so sweet;
And hill and vale, and earth and sky,
Thy praises ever shall repeat.

by Mary Dow Brine

Hello September . . .September draws in the harvest of your soul

21078853_1484386128277251_4895641578561851373_n

September whispers ,
her song-
draws in the harvest of your soul-
what you have gained,
will be brought forth.
dance to the silence hum,
of your offering-
bring in your presence,
all that you are brought to,
are changes,
as seasons change,
your changing is
moving with the colors of time,
the colors of your calling-
come move through the changes,
of you”

~ Maureen Kwiat Meshenberg

“Fairest of the months!
Ripe summer’s queen
The hey-day of the year
With robes that gleam with sunny sheen
Sweet August doth appear.”

Happy New Month of July!

Welcome to the month of freedom and liberty!
July has one of the longest lists of Independence Day anniversaries; more than twenty days of the month are Independence celebration days for various countries including good old Uncle Sam (USA)!
It’s as if a special July energy triggers the ‘freedom hormones’ in humans urging them to break both individual and collective fetters!

Welcome to the month of 7: the 7th month of the year, one of the 7 months with thirty-one days! 7, the number of wisdom, Divinity, royalty, Purple and so phenomenally interwoven with life and existence in Creation that it is rightly said “wherever 7 manifests the Will of God is present.”

Let us look as some familiar recurrence of the number:
the 7-pointed star with 7 Tops, 7 Worlds, 7 candlesticks, 7 floors, 7 Gems in the Crown of Primordial, 7 niches, 7 days, 7 Chakras, 7 colors of the Rainbow, 7 Days, 7 Nights, 7 Wonders,, 7 Notes – A B C D E F G, 7 Seas , 7 Continents, 7 Sins, 7th Sign, 7 SEALED SCROLLS, 7 Angels , 7 Trumpets, 7 Metals of Alchemy, 7 Dwarfs , 7th inning stretch, 7th heaven, 7 Brides for Brothers…

…and July babies; like the various hues of rubies, their birthstone, sometimes lively, adorable and happy-go-lucky, at other times, moody, almost pessimistic but, largely trustworthy! Happy Birthday on your various birth days!

Happy New Month to everyone!
May we all find the strength for spiritual freedom and ascent!

Happy New Month..welcome to the month of The Holy Spirit!

13076794_851765928284727_6175209817489879909_n

Holy Month on Earth…
Creation springtime is here.
A month in which the Only One will let out a Drop of His Blood filled with Unsubstantiate Energy to renew the substantiate.
A Drop to refresh His garment and all beings sheltering therein.
The Month of the Holy Spirit, the Month of the Holy Grail.
Soon It will flow from the Fountain of Life.
May the good Lord grant It.
May we, creatures of Creation open our heart in sincere humility so that the Water of Life will fill our chalice.
Amen…!!!

Thoughts on the 1st of April!

1991721126-Fools-Quotes-54

“The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools’ Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.”
– Poor Robin’s Almanac, 1790

“The first of April is the day we remember
what we are the other 364 days of the year.”
– Mark Twain
