What's Up for June?
June 7th starts the month of the Horse. The Horse is an action packed energy they will move and shake you to a point of being impulsive. Nothing is too challenging to take on with the Horse at your back. There is a natural optimistic nature to any endeavor especially if you can do it alone. Independence and freedom is a necessary component along with being around other people. This month you can also expect others to be more perceptive, extremely capable, and excellent when it comes to business matters.
June also carries a joyful and creative energy. Imagine when you were a child and spent long summer days playing in the sun. This is the type of energy that surrounds this month. Just be mindful of others trying to take what doesn't belong to them.
Where's the money this month?
Are you working on a big networking deal? Is there someone you know who can assist you in making that perfect connection? Are you looking for a mentor to show you the ropes? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are in luck as the month of June has tremendous potential for making such connections that lead to income. This is the month to sign up for that networking event. Make those connections and your bank account will be happy you did. To give this an extra boost, create some movement in the northwest area of your home and property. A water feature, bright lighting or a metal chime placed outdoors are all perfect options.
Sales with Authority:
If sales is where you need to connect to fluff up that bank account, June is the month to do it. Take a leadership role when it comes to pitching your services. Let people know you are the perfect choice for what they need. Add an earth element in the southeast area of your home, a few stones should do, and bolster that "sure thing feeling."
What's Up with Relationships?
This is the month to pay attention to all relationships as things can falter a bit in this department. Plan a romantic meal, a gathering with old friends, or simply a stroll along the beach with that favorite someone. The idea is to let others know you are paying attention. To keep things in check, add some fire to the southwest and rekindle romance while offsetting any temptation to stray.
How Do Others Perceive What You Do?
This month others may talk about you in an ill-manner. The energy is undermining here that it can actually lead to an uneasy feeling in your stomach. Go about your business with integrity, be focused and sharp when it comes to any responsibility and place some metal in the south area of the home to knock out negativity.
Show Me The Fun!
This month naturally has the "fun factor" available for us all. When it comes to your work, add that flare of creativity and you are sure to find success, as others will notice what you are doing. If you maintain a receptive approach, the rewards will be great. By adding some virtual water and wood to the west area of your home or office you can benefit from the creative energy here.
Anything New in Career For You?
June is the month to take the plunge in new business ideas or venture. Don't hold back as there is plenty of support to let things fly.This support comes via male energy so keep your eyes and ears wide open. Add some virtual water in the north area of your home or office and go with the flow.
Tap Into Wisdom Lately?
When's the last time you sat in meditation and LISTENED? June is the month to pull out that meditation pillow and take a seat. Your higher self and spirit guides have all the answers. Follow through and much will come your way. Add some metal elements to the northeast and really get the communications flowing.
What's Up With Health and Family?
June may throw a wrench into your health or family matters. Things may get a little chaotic so best to walk the line when it comes to your diet, exercise, and family interaction. Take extra time to pay attention to these areas of your life and you will come out ahead. Add some metal to the east or let a CD with chiming gongs play periodically to offset the negative energy that resides here.

Yesterday I mentioned to examine the northeast area of your home and property to bring it into balance with earth and fire elements. The reasoning behind this is to balance your true self. If you do not love YOU how can you expect to love another unconditionally or even know exactly what you need in a relationship.
The polar point to the northeast is the southwest. Here is the area for attracting the right relationship into your life. This area also requires the elements of earth and fire. The images should have a romantic theme and preferably with two people. A beautiful symbol would be a stone statue of two people embracing. The element of stone is perfect to awaken this direction and the image to catapult the law of attraction.
It is also beneficial to create a vision board with all the attributes you are looking for in a loving relationship. This is exactly what I did and met my soul mate. All the qualities I was looking for are exactly what my husband has, including he does the cooking and the food shopping!
Here's to attracting that perfect mate!

Have you look at your relationships recently? Are you happy with your friends, partnerships and intimacy? If you are trying to activate this area of your life begin first in the northeast portent and make sure you capture a relationship with self first. Add some earth and fire accents, meditation material and perhaps your yoga mat. Spend time understanding self first so you know what you want in a relationship with others. Make sure the outdoors in this area is in good repair. Add a beautiful rock garden with a stone statue of an image that represents wisdom. Part two tomorrow~

Patterns of Energy
There is a wealth of Taoist knowledge revealed in the I Ching. The "Tao" can be translated as the "path." The I Ching contains Taoist notions of oneness and that everything in the Universe is part of a continuum.
The I Ching is the result of observation into the nature of reality. Everything that happens has a meaningful realtionship and significance of that moment. The I Ching is like a web of numerous strands that interconnect through a complex but orderly fashion with the rhythm of life.
There is an invisible yet powerful energy that flows through everything in the Universe. In Chinese philosophy this is known as "qi" and in yoga it is known as "prana." This energy is believed to be the result of shifting energies between the heavens (cosmos) and the earth plane. There are two primary poles defining this energy, the yin (receptive) and yang (creator). The combination or interaction of yin and yang results in the 5 stages of refined energy or what is known as the 5 elements (earth, metal, water, wood and fire). These elements refelct energy that moves in the macrocosm (universe) and the microcosm (human body).
The I Ching empahsizes the need for each human to experience the relationships between life's energies. This is what is referred to a spiritual approach to everyday life. When we are able to balance the combined energies of yin and yang we are able to experience a level of nirvana - "Being beyond the world while living in it." This is why it is so important to engage in daily meditations.
In Chinese beliefs, patterns created by heating up tortoise shells (plastromancy), was considered an oracle power to foretell the future. The tortoise symbolized long life and happiness and revealed unusual black and white markings on its back. At the time, (2953-2838), this was considered to be a sign from heaven and studied by many scholars.
This mathematical configuration is known as the Universal chart, representing the universe and life. The building of this chart is based on the interacting energies between heaven and earth. It is most commonly known as the ba-gua in modern feng shui practice. The trigrams within this chart developed into building the hexagrams (6 lines), reflecting specific spiritual principles based on heaven and earth interactions.
What The Hexagrams Tell Us
The hexagrams are associated with evaluations of specific information for us to learn from. It is about interpreting the state of play between the universe and yourself. Our actions, thoughts and dreams exist in the same universe as everything outside ourselves. In other words, the macrocosm (universe) exist simtaneously to the microcosm (us) and therefore there is a common origin. When we seek to learn from the I Ching we are actually tuning in to higher self, our intuition, and divine spirit.
When consulting the I Ching it is important to prepare yourself, empty your mind and tune into higher self. With that being said, sitting in meditation is a perfect way to prepare for your I Ching consultation. Addtionally, improving the flow of energy in the body is also beneficial with the practice of yoga or qi gong.
Allow your intuition to guide you to the questions you would like to formulate instead of letting the ego mind to take the lead. You should only ask one question at a time and reflect on the question prior to the coin toss - the most common method of casting. It is important to use 3 coins of like denomination and toss the coins using your left hand representing the "ida" or yin side or intuitive side of the brain. You must toss the coins 6 times to build the hexagram. There are specific formulas to determine whether the coin toss results in a yin or yang line in the building hexagram process. You may consult any I Ching book for this information.
Using 5 Element Theory
Using the I Ching for an oracle reading can be very involved at a master level; however, understanding 5 element theory can simplify the meaning for a present situation by evaluatingthe upper trigram to the lower trigram and their interacting elements.
Every hexagram falls into one of the 5 possible classes of element relationship (birthing, weakening, insult, controlling and assisting). For every hexagram we can take the elements represented by the upper the upper and lower trigrams and see which elementary relationship we have. Keep in mind it is always the upper trigram that acts upon the lower trigram. The lower trigram is more yin and receptive while the upper trigram is active or yang as it takes the heaven position. The lower trigram represents the situation (what is) and the upper trigram idicates the force or what is done.
Let's take for example the hexagram 36 (Ming Yi). This hexagram comprises the trigram of earth over fire or the trigram Kun (earth) in the heaven position (above) the trigram Li (fire) in the earth position. In 5 element theory earth weakens the fire. This means there is a weakening effect for success or advancement can be difficult.
Hexagram 3 (Zhun) comprises water over thunder or the trigram Kan (water) in the heaven position with the trigram Zhen (wood) in the earth position. In this scenario water is fueling or birthing to the trigram Zhen or wood and therefore there is full potential to build what you are trying to accomplish.
Using the 5 elemental relationship theory gives a simplistic everyday approach when consulting the I Ching for those times when you are looking for a little advice from higher self. Remember to stay in the moment and tune in to the wisdom that lies within.
