There are many different approaches to raising children. Each child has special talents, but how do we know what they are when they are young? Astrology helps us to more easily identify these talents by having a natal chart cast for the date, time and place of their birth. By looking at the child’s natal chart, we are able to discover so many things that make each of our children very unique. We can teach them to live in harmony with themselves and with others and assist them to live to their fullest potential. Looking back to the days of the Courts, every new baby had their birth chart cast. This practice needs to happen again for all new babies. There would be more happy, content people!
An Astrological chart is the most amazing gift we can give to new parents to help them raise their children. They will get to learn the magic and mystery of each child. The potential is shown in the chart, but like a small garden, it needs nurturing to become what it can be.
At the moment of the first breath, we each set the astrological pattern known as the horoscope. A baby’s personality has not yet matured and the birth chart must be interpreted with this in mind. The chart is a map of our personal universe for a lifetime. It symbolizes the lessons we need to learn for the growth of our souls, the special needs we have as individuals, and indicates our potential for development.
Many people wonder why each child doesn’t come with an instruction guide or handbook. Well there is a guide and it is the horoscope map. It is the best tool we have to understand our children, help them to know themselves better and for us as parents to guide them toward a life path that is a perfect fit for them.
I posted this with different photos 3 years ago and it got a lot of views. I decided to repost it today!
We are living in wonderland, but we rarely notice it. The easiest way.to spiritually awaken is to look at the world around us with new eyes… to see things as if for the first time and the last time!
Usually we become so entangled in the story we tell ourselves about life that we don’t notice the deep mystery of existence. We live as if we know what is going on, when actually life is an enormous enigma. For spiritual awakening we need to step into the mystery. A simple way to do this is to focus on the present moment. When we do, our state of consciousness spontaneously changes because we come out of the story and into the mystery. The story exists in time, so when we bring our attention into the present moment there is no story about the past and the future. This can be a great relief. In the here and now, we don’t understand life with words; we experience the mystery of the moment.
Spiritual awakening is intensely pleasurable, because we truly appreciate all we see and hear and touch in this world of wonders. When we are superficially awake, we feel the enjoyment available to us only partially. When we are deeply awake; however, we find ourselves really savoring the pleasures of life. The body wakes up to how sweet it is to be alive.
Appreciate colors and sounds and feelings. They become rich and vibrant. The world starts to sparkle. There is an experience of profound gratitude that arises when we see how glorious life really is!

I thought it worthy of sharing!
I found a penny right by my feet three times this week!
I previously published two blog posts about the pennies and dimes that angels use to get your attention, along with finding feathers near you and butterflies flying right next to you.
It has been awhile, but within the last 8 days, 3 times, wow!!
I found the first penny last week the next morning after placing my first order for my Astrology game of cards, which was very exciting after 2 years of working on it. I felt my angels were congratulating me.
I found another penny today after leaving the bank where I decided to open a checking account for doing card game business. I felt they liked that and said money is coming your way.
Then I was given another penny today when I made a stop to pick up something and there it was at my foot as I stepped out of the car. I think they were emphasizing the fact that they like what I am doing.
So was this all a coincidence or my imagination working overtime? I don’t think so. Read my other 2 stories on this topic and tell me what you think!!
Learn the basics of Astrology using my colorful Astrology Card Game, a new concept just created! This is a fun way to play familiar card games while you automatically get familiar with Astrology.
Enclosed with each deck are suggested ways to play the first two of many possible games: Zodiac Rummy and Zodiac Solitaire.
Full rules for Astro Rummy – Great for 3 or 4 people. Deal out 7 cards to each player. Turn the remainder face down and turn up one card to start the discard pile. Each player in turn draws a card. When a card is drawn, there must be a discard. You may have the option of picking up the top card from the discard pile or even picking up the entire discard pack instead of drawing a card… But you must have two cards of that zodiac set in hand. In addition, if you take the entire discard pack, because you now have more possibility of winning, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO LAY DOWN 3 SETS RATHER THAN 2 SETS LIKE THE OTHER PLAYERS! Then discard 1 card as usual. When play ends, whoever wins gets 25 points. If a card set of 4 has been already laid down by any player, it doesn’t count against them. When there is a winner, any cards remaining in the other players’ hands count 5 points for the winner.
Zodiac Solitaire is played like regular Solitaire except there are 12 instead of 13 cards and no suits. Great for playing and learning when you are alone! Lay out 7 rows of cards across, turning up the first card and turning down the other 6 cards. Deal across the row again, turning up the second card and turning down the other 5 cards. Again, turning up the 3rd card and turning down the other 4 cards, and so on until you have turned up the 7th card. From the cards showing on the table, fill the rows down in order of the signs from Pisces to Aries just like Kings down to Aces. The 12th sign Pisces acts like a King and when there is an empty spot, it fills that spot. With the remainder of the deck, by threes turn over cards and see if they can be used anywhere. Aries acts like an Ace and when you have gone as far as possible, you can turn over the cards by ones to see if any can fit in. Begin laying off the Aries (Aces) up top followed by Taurus (like 2’s) and then Gemini (like 3’s) and so on, until you complete the 4 sets up top. You will win most of the time with these cards and you will learn the order of the signs forward and backward each time you play.
Please use the Informational card included in your deck to learn the order of the signs to play Zodiac Solitaire.
MORE FUN GAMES TO PLAY:

Fire signs include Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
Earth signs include Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Zodiac Birth Sign Game – Before play begins declare your Sun Sign. If a second player has the same birth sign, he or she must choose the sign of a family member instead and declare it. Deal out 7 cards to 3 or 4 players. Collect one set of 4 cards from your birth sign and one set of any other sign in order to win the hand. Winner gets 25 points and play ends. No discard is needed to go out.
Zodiac Human Symbol Game – There are just 4 zodiac symbols depicting humans. They are the Gemini Twins, the Virgo Virgin, the Sagittarius Archer and the Aquarius Water Bearer.

The other 8 symbols are animals or objects. Deal out 7 cards to 3 or 4 people. Only 1 set of a sign with people is needed to go out and win and when this happens, the game ends immediately and winner gets 25 points. Note: To vary this game, you could collect one of each of the human zodiac signs rather than 4 of the same sign.
Zodiac Numbers Game – Great for kids! Deal 7 cards to 3 or 4 players. Collect any 4 consecutive numbers of the zodiac number cards only. Collect just one set of four to win, picking up a card and discarding a card.
Check the enclosed informational Symbols card to see the consecutive order of the signs from #1 Aries to #12 Pisces
Zodiac Fishing Game – similar to the Go Fish Game – another great game that kids and also adults can enjoy with these cards. WHEN YOU ASK OTHER PLAYERS FOR A PARTICULAR SIGN, THEY MUST HAND OVER ALL THAT THEY HAVE OF THAT SIGN. The winner is the first one to collect 2 zodiac sets and win 25 points.
Rob The Deck – Deal 8 cards to each player. Lay out 6 cards right side up on the table to work from. If you hold a card in the same zodiac sign as one on the table, pick that card up and along with the card in your hand, begin to accumulate your pile, facing up. Keep going until you have no match. If you can’t play, lay a card down in the center from your hand. Each player builds their pile. If any player has a card in the same zodiac sign as the top card in your pile, they get to rob the deck and move your pile to theirs and the same for you. Deal out 8 more cards when the hands are all gone and continue playing. When there are no more cards to deal the largest pile wins!

This is a lovely piece of writing that someone gave me, printed out on heavy violet paper. I liked it so much I put it in a frame. I must share:
In all the world there is nobody like you. Since the beginning of time, there has never been another person like you. Nobody has your smile. Nobody has your eyes, your nose, your hair, your hands, your voice. You are special!
No one sees things just as you do. In all of time there has been no one who laughs like you, no one who cries like you; and what makes you laugh and cry will never provoke identical laughter and tears from anybody else, ever!
And you are the only one in all creation with your set of natural abilities. There will always be somebody who is better at one of the things you are good at, but no one in the universe can reach the quality of your combination of talents, ideas, natural abilities, and spiritual abilities.
Through all of eternity, no one will ever look, talk, walk, think, or do exactly as you do. You are special. You are! And, as in all rarity, there is great value. Because of your great rare value, you need not attempt to imitate others. You should accept – celebrate- your differences and even those parts of yourself that you judge to be not okay.
You are special. Continue to realize it’s not an accident that you are who you are. Continue to see that you were created to serve a very special purpose. Out of all the billions of applicants for that mission, only you qualified. You were the one with the best combination of what it takes. Just as surely as every snowflake that falls has a perfect design and no two designs are the same so, too, are two people not the same.
Ask that you continue to be guided in fulfilling your divine plan. Trust the process and let it unfold in perfect sequence and in perfect order. Be grateful and be happy.

Gifts to each of the zodiac signs :
” …And it was morning as God stood before his twelve children and into each of them planted the seed of human life. One by one each child stepped forward to receive his appointed gift.
To you Aries
I give the seed first that you might have the honor of planting it. That for every seed you plant one million more will multiply in your hand. You will not have time to see the seed grow, for everything you plant creates more that must be planted. You will be the first to penetrate the soil of people’s minds with My Idea. But it is not your job to nourish the Idea, nor to question it. Your life is action, and the only action I ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation.For your good work I give you the virtue of Self-Esteem.
…. Quietly Aries stepped back to his place.
To you Taurus
I give the power to build the seed into substance. Your job is a great one requiring patience, for you must finish all that has been started, or the seeds will be wasted to the wind. You are not to question nor change your mind in the middle, nor to depend on others for what I ask you to do. For this I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely.
…. And Taurus stepped back into place.
To you Aquarius
To you Pisces
I give the most difficult task of all. I ask you to collect all the world’s sorrows and return them to Me. Your tears are to be ultimately My Tears. The sorrow you will absorb is the effect of people’s misunderstanding of My Idea, but you are to give them compassion that they may try again. For this the most difficult task of all, I give you the greatest gift of all. You will be the only one of my twelve Children to understand Me. This gift of Understanding is for you, Pisces, for when you try to spread it to humankind they will not listen.…. And Pisces stepped back into place. …. And Pisces stepped back into place.
