Lunar Adventures
by Kathie Anderson

Astrological Sun Sign Horoscope
Another set of transforming eclipses occurs this month: a partial solar eclipse in Virgo, on 9/13; and a total lunar eclipse in Aries, on 9/27. The transformational planet Pluto, himself, which went retrograde shortly after the last set of eclipses, six months ago, will go direct two days before this lunar eclipse and play a major role in both eclipses. Moreover, Venus will go direct (9/6) and Mercury will go retrograde (9/17), this month. So, transformation is the theme! Read more…

From the Heart
by Alan Cohen

The World You Prefer
One of my favorite movies is The Truman Show, in which a man has unknowingly been born and raised on a massive TV set on which the entire world watches his life unfold. Eventually Truman begins to discover that the life he has been living is contrived, and he attempts to escape the tiny world in which he is trapped. But the producer of the show cleverly throws up obstacles to make Truman turn back. Read more…

Sound Bites

Veggie options from the Farmers Market
I hope you have found time this summer to do a little gardening or visit your local Farmers Market! The market is a fun place to get fresh veggies, herbs, honey, jellies, fermented foods and flowers. It’s food for the soul as well as the plate. One of my favorite things to do is buy a variety of veggies in a rainbow of colors and figure out what I can create. What’s better than veggies? Veggies in Curry of course! I hope you like this Thai-inspired dish as much as my family does! Read more…

From the Editor

Snowden, Surveillance and the Military Industrial Complex
This morning after reading a few more pages of Glenn Greenwald’s book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State, I had to put the book down and ponder why mass surveillance of private cell and cyber communications from throughout the world, without probable cause, isn’t the most hotly debated topic in the nation.

Spirited Kids
by Nadine Penny

Shedding Middle School Skin
“Wow!” was all that slipped from our lips, as my kids and I watched in wonder as a sizable garter snake slithered away from its skin. It left behind a scaly sheath; a powerful symbol of death and rebirth, of transmutation and shifting perspective. I couldn’t help but think how appropriate this symbol was, since we’re about to start a new school year. Read more…

Spirit Leaves
by Janet Michele Red Feather

Metaphysical Reflections on Service and Volunteering
A British friend remarked, “You Americans trivialize everything.” Despite the initial semblance of condescension, there’s truth in the elegant gentleman’s assertion. When it comes to deep apprehension of the Great Mystery, our culture is the fast food of contemplative existence. We want our spirituality in bumper stickers. We represent religion in knickknacks. In cultivating generosity, we blithely perform “random acts of kindness” and then boast about them. Read more…
