Tell Me the Energy Forecast Tuesdays!

Japanese Gardens Oregon

Welcome to "Tell Me The Energy Forecast Tuesdays." This forecast is based on a combination of flying stars and 4 Pillars Astrology. Let's find out what is in store for you today.

Overall, today is thought to be a balance day. In other words, the energy of a balanced day promotes easy transition in work and other projects. It is a great day for travel and or renovations.

The heavenly stem of fire fuels the ox earth branch so there is a wonderful flow of energy. The morning hours should be spent focusing on your goals, marketing and how to improve your overall reputation in your field of work. Take time to finesse your website or marketing literature. The afternoon hours are aligned for focused, methodical and pin-point accuracy in your work. Forget short-cuts, as this energy combination calls for details.

The daily star for today is the most auspicious 8 money star. This takes position in the center of the loshu and therefore it easily spreads auspicious energy for everyone. This star is great when it comes to finances, real estate, wisdom and knowledge. It is beneficial to carve out some meditation time for today to reap the benefits of this star. 

Other Areas of Focus:

  • Finances: A nice combination occurs in the house of fortunate blessings and finances today. Again, this points to real estate. It's a good idea to check in with your present property and perhaps think about improvements or other options.
  • Goals/Visions: This partners with the overall heavenly stem of fire today. Hone in on your reputation and windfalls can be the result.
  • Networking/Mentors: A great day to network or tap into mentor or be a mentor to someone else needing assistance. The energy combination here is terrific that can yield long-term results.

Happy Tuesday!

Reading the Energy Wednesdays!

One of my favorite despacho clearing pictures...

Reading the energy Wednesdays! Welcome to my Wednesdays energy readings. From now on I will take each day of the week and bring a different focus tip to align conscious energy. 

Wednesdays are "Reading the Energy Day". 

Today is considered an auspicious day to receive returns and rewards. The energies promote a positive outcome and abundant return when you are expecting or requesting for something. The metal heavenly stem has a tendency to over think things today. This can busy the mind up so much that you miss the point. Utilize the metal stem more effectively through preparation, precision and intuition. The combination to the sheep branch takes on a gathering energy. In other words, you'll do best by combining your efforts with others. The sheep will also pull you to spend some time with family or friends later in the day. It might be a good idea to make dinner plans with those closest to you.

Additional Areas of Focus:

  • It is beneficial to take the advice of a younger male when it comes to new real estate options. Listen to words of advice, as they can bring windfalls especially when it comes to building real estate and new direction.
  • Plan on movement with your finances. Seek financial literature to guide you with the process. Make sure you have enough ready cash to avoid penalty fees from other investments.
  • Continue to shine the light on your plans, goals and visions. At times it may dim causing you to question your direction. Dig in and move forward!
  • Reach out to mentors and network with those who are on the same path. This will propel long-term goals and direction.
Contemplate this:

True friendship is developed when you do things for someone without thinking or expecting of what you will get in return.

How to Change Up Your Yoga Practice for the Fall Season!

October Tips From Mary Jane Kasliner
View this email in your browser

How to Change Up Your Yoga Practice for the Fall Season!

Welcome to BSA - The Conscious Alignment of Energy
The wind is changing bringing in the fall season. Albeit nature is so colorful this time of year, our minds and bodies aren't always ready for the change in weather and temperature. Change is good provided you can ease into it.

One of the best things to ground our mind and body this time of year is to connect to Mother Earth. It had a tremendous grounding quality that can offset the otherwise heavy "vata," one of the three doshas in the sister science to yoga known as Ayurveda. Vata corresponds to the element of air. With strong vata, you may notice you are more anxious, ringing in the ears, or difficulty focusing. Let's take a look at how you can move into the season of fall with a feeling of stability.

Mary Jane Kasliner

1. Grounding Your Body with Yoga Poses:
If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, try a yoga practice that includes a few grounding asanas, such as forward bends, that allow the mind and body to relax. Forward bends work more with the parasympathetic nervous system that calms the body instead of revving it up. Standing poses are also very good because you feel balanced throughout the body. Twists help to cleanse the body while pranayama and meditation have an overall calming impact.

2. Forward Folds:   Focus on grounding the legs and feet deeply into the earth, also use breath and Uddiyana Bandha (belly pulling slightly up and inward) to allow the body to go deeper into the pose to relax the nervous system.

3. Seated Forward Fold: Ground the sit bones deeply into the earth, use the breath and Bandhas (locks) - squeeze the pelvic floor and lift the lower belly up and back, to go deeper. Better yet, try a restorative version of this pose using one or two blankets piled on the legs to support the torso while relaxing forward.

4. Half Lord of the Fish: This is a great pose to release toxins from the kidneys and liver while also grounding the body. Maintain a lifting action through the entire spine while twisting from the base and core.

5. Head to Knee Pose: This pose grounds and lengthens the body. The west side or back of body is brought to the light to thin out emotional imprints or samskaras.

6. Warrior 2: This pose is not only rooting to the earth but it taps into the solar plexus to move beyond fears and anxieties. Really root down through the padas (feet) and engage the pelvic floor as the arms move out from the heart space.


7. Eagle Pose: This pose pulls inward mimicking the element of metal strong this time of year. The standing leg roots  and grounds the body into the earth, the supporting element of metal. The movement inward represents a journey towards higher consciousness.


8. Breathe: The best thing you can do to relieve stress and anxiety is to simply breathe. Make an effort to spend some time outdoors and breathe with the ebb and flow of the wind. The breath has a remarkable ability to slow down the mind and the physical body.


9. Ground Your Environment: It doesn't make much sense to focus just on ways to ground your body and ignore your environment. After all, your environment is simply the macrocosm of your body and therefore directly influenced by it. Here are a few simple tips to follow:
  • Remove clutter. Clutter has a way to create chaos in the mind and the environment. Roll up your sleeves and really dig into what no longer serves you or your family.

  • Refresh your landscaping by removing dead vegetation, raking the soil and adding rockery. Stones are stabilizing and grounding. Areas that support rockery are the northeast, southwest, northwest and west.

  • Check in on the grounding earth areas of your home (northeast, center and southwest). This actually is referred to as the earth axis  line in feng shui schematics. It is extremely important this line is not undermined by water (bathrooms, laundry facilities) or architecturally missing (odd floor plan shape). If these areas are compromised by water, then offset and restore stability by adding earth elements (earth colors such as beige, tan, brown, terra cotta, etc.) and stone materials (granite, slate, etc.). If a stairwell falls within this axis line, reinforce with earth color hues, mountain scenery in artwork and stone pedestal with stone statue on landing, if the room permits. If the northeast or southwest areas of the floor plan are compromised, add in extra energy through outdoor landscaping. Even strong upward lighting in those areas are very effective.

What's the Energy for Today?

Today is a day for planning and strategy. The wood heavenly stem is in a yin form so moving a slower and methodical pace is preferable. The ox branch is sure to have you working hard today but to be effective take a bold and outspoken position. This will ease the otherwise tension that exists between the stem and branch elements.

Areas to be mindful of today:

  • Personal family relationships. Make the effort for quiet time with those who are closest to you. This will sure pay ten-fold.
  • Wealth, in terms of daily finances is closely linked to a long-term strategy for your career and life. Review what your intentions are, your goals and visions as this will have a powerful impact to your overall financial picture.
  • Real estate transaction is a focus especially when it comes to partnering relationships. Take into account what needs to be done for a smooth transition.
Tip of the Day: 

In the beginners', mind there are infinite possibilities. In the experts' mind, there are few.

Monday Feng Shui Forecast

Happy Monday morning! Today is a day best to remove unwanted things, whether that is items in your environment or projects that no longer make any sense to continue. The daily star is very auspicious. It's about gathering financial resources and making a move in the direction of new real estate possibilities. However, since the star falls in the center, it is best not to make any drastic moves today. Instead, formulate a plan, write a list, and review your financial status. This is the way you can come from a position of power. Other areas to bring your attention to today:

  • Align your vision for future aspirations by checking in with younger and older male that are close to you and you can trust. Some great ideas may come from this leading to financial prospects.
  • Be mindful of marketing and network strategies today. There is potential for undermining activity.
  • Potential for very active energy for creative projects, children and overall play-time. Just be mindful of keeping things in order otherwise it can easily get out of control. 
Overall, the morning hours are for communication, listening and advancing long-term strategies for life and career. Trust those who are willing to extend a helpful hand.

Tip of the day: There is a difference between personal success and business success!

Daily Feng Shui Astrology Forecast

Deal Beach - New Jersey

The energy for today is rather unstable and therefore best to avoid any major decisions or projects. This is mainly because the unstable earth (5) star resides in the center of all things. Here are areas you can focus on for today.

  • Keep family connections strong. You'll notice how they support your endeavors. Keep moving through the details of projects you are currently working on. In other words, don't use today to sign any contracts or make a major decision, rather fine tune what you already have in progress.
  • Reference those who know more than you do when it comes to your business. Identify tactics they are using for success and see how you can include them to your approach. Sometimes you need the assistance and partnership of others to benefit you most.
  • Reassess your life plan. This includes your career and where your intended focus is. Are there spokes you need to add to the wheel you have created? Again, don't make any major moves today, simply contemplate future actions.
  • Your best guidance will come from within. Therefore, carve out time today for meditation.

Tip of the day: Replace negativity with positive action.

Earth Dams the Water - The Earth Supports us!

The earth element is the stabilizer between seasons. Notice how the weather patterns react from one season to another. Case and point, tomorrow at 4 PM, fall begins. The temperature is expected (east coast), to remain in the high 70's low 80's. In other words, there is, for the most part, a gradual shift from one season to another. It is the earth element that stabilizes this transition.

The element for the autumn season is metal. It is contractive in nature representing the inward pull of the earth as it prepares for the colder months ahead. The element of water is actively at work keeping the water tables full in preparation for the growth of spring. Yes, these elements are constantly at work long before we actually experience the season change.

In this video, I explain the ke cycle between the elements of earth to water and how the bridging element would be metal. I decided to post this video, as we are moving into the season of metal. When two elements are fighting one another, it is simply because there is potentially an exaggerated amount of one element. We see this in design all the time. Watch and listen to the video to find out  how to remedy an over abundance of earth when it comes to your internal environment.

This fall pull the energy inward and experience full self. Find out 10 simple things you can do to ring in the Autumn Equinox!

Happy Fall!

Daily Four Pillars Feng Shui Forecast!

Monday Morning Four Pillars Feng Shui Forecast:

The combination of energy today is interesting. First off, it is best not to engage in any major activities today. Far better to work on things you may have been neglecting. There are a few areas that you can consider to focus your energy on:

  • Contemplate how your heritage and family values can propel your finances. There is great potential to build a strong foundation for finances if you seek the advice of elders. If you are considering a real estate move, think about what you can do to make your environment more enticing. Obviously good feng shui will do wonders. 
  • Take out your vision board and see where your mission in life may have changed. If you don't have a vision board then get busy making one. Post it somewhere you can see daily. There is plenty of energy fueling you aspirations today. You just need to tap in and bring it to fruition.
  • The more creative you become with a joyful heart the more you will attract windfalls into your life. Try rolling around in happy baby yoga pose and see what comes to mind.
  • The life journey today is about heavenly guidance and those you consider to be mentors.
Today's Tip: 

Anger and jealousy are boulders in the fountain of goodness.

Daily Feng Shui Astrology Forecast

Friday September 15 Forecast:

Today is a very auspicious day for doing just about anything. The yin wood stem makes it perfect for slowing the pace of your ideas. Take time to work things through and test them out rather than forcing the concept. Trust in your intuition for success to ensue. Checking in with your finances today is beneficial. There may be a tendency this month to spend more than you should. 

Areas of Focus:

  • Continue research and study with your whatever you are working on.
  • Rely on family support and guidance with real estate and finances.
  • Continue to let the ideas roll in, especially if they are in alignment with your goals and aspirations.
  • Heed advice from those you network with to build on your goals, as windfalls may be the result.
Daily Tip: 

One must dream even if it is to the extreme!

10 Simple Things You Can do to Celebrate the Autumn Equinox!

Autumn Equinox Celebration Ideas!

10 Simple Things You Can do to Celebrate the Autumn Equinox!

Welcome to BSA - The Conscious Alignment of Energy
The autumn equinox is the first day of fall. For most of us, fall is a time that ushers in harvests, preserving food for the upcoming months, enjoyment of the colors of the changing leaves and beginning to prepare oneself both physically and psychologically for the upcoming colder months. The famous poet, Keats, said fall was the "season of mists and mellow fruitfulness." Fall is a wonderful season filled with vibrant colors, cooler days and different foods.

In this newsletter, have fun with some simple ways to celebrate the autumn equinox. I have combined a variety of goodies from simple things you can do in and around your home to yoga poses that work with the "inward" movement of energy for this season.

Mary Jane Kasliner

What Makes The Equinox Special?
This is a day when both the daytime and nighttime are of the same length, which has been long interpreted to mean the world is in balance. Once the autumn equinox passes, the nights begin to get longer and the weather cooler. It is a time to gather harvest and determine what is needed for the upcoming winter. This is a time to determine what you may need physically and emotionally to restore and balance your own life.

1. Consider a Welcome Party:
Why not welcome autumn in with a party. Invite friends or family and ask everyone to bring their favorite fall dish. Fruits and vegetables such as apples, pears, squash and pumpkin are all wonderful fall foods.  We have our party scheduled already!

2. Infuse Autumn D├ęcor in and Around Your Home:

If you want others to enjoy your arrival of fall, why not enhance your environment with autumnal items like pumpkins, straw, a scarecrow or your favorite fall photo. Enhance the western portent of your home with metal and earth elements. For example, a metal bowl or your favorite stones creatively placed on an end table or cocktail table is one way to honor the elements of the west.

3. Get Crafty:
Fall inspired crafts are not only a fun way to express your artistic side, but a great way to infuse positive energy into your environment. Gather berries, pinecones, leaves and other fall favorite items from nature and then put them together for a fall wreath. You can also make leaf prints and frame them. This is an especially fun project for your children or grandchildren to take part in. 

4. Journal Your Achievements & Experiences:
In feng shui, the autumn equinox is associated with the element of metal. This is an element that moves inward. Take the time to get quiet and reflect on all the blessings that you have received over the past several months. This is a way of restoring gratitude within your life. Fine-tune what you have achieved and create space for all that is yet to come.

5. Contemplate:
This is a time that the buzz of summer winds down and life outdoors calms down. Take the lead from nature and calm your mind down. Set up a daily meditation practice, take some yoga classes, tai chi or qigong. This is a perfect way to bring balance to your mind, body and spirit.

6. Seek to Improve Your Health:
There is no time like the present to improve your health. There are so many delicious fruits and vegetables to help you cleanse and keep healthy. One way to really make a difference in your health is choosing the right foods for you personally. How? I can produce a 4 Pillars Chart based on your birth data and determine what specifics elements you may be heavily weighted in or too weak. Based on this information, I can recommend a list of elemental foods to assist in balancing your energy. For example, I am  a balanced metal chart (see below), albeit these charts can be tricky, I do best infusing my diet with  metal and water foods. Find out what foods are best for YOU personally for just $29.95. You'll receive a 7 page printed out chart plus the foods that bode best for you. And of course you can always build on this service with  a professional life reading from me personally. Email me now!


7. Touch Up Your Moldings:
I love the way it looks and feels when my moldings and doors are clean and bright. Most moldings and doors have white semi-gloss enamel paint finish. This correlates directly to the element of metal that is associated with the autumn season. Take note of how your moldings and internal doors look. If you need to kick it up a notch, then go for the gusto and illuminate these aspects of your home. This is definitely on my list!


8. Bring More Light into Your Home:
As the days get shorter and the nights get longer you'll want to add more light source to your home. Be creative in your choices. Perhaps some salt candles that will act twofold; illuminate and improve air quality. Light up rooms you normally do not spend time in. This is a fantastic way to improve the energy in different areas of your life that may seem stagnate.


9. Honor Your Family and Ancestors:
The inward movement of energy this time of year is the polar opposite of the outward wood energy of spring. The family/ancestor aspect in feng shui corresponds to the east or spring wood energy. Everything in the universe works in polar opposites; therefore, this is a good time of the year to honor your family and ancestors. Spend time with family and look through old photos of those who are on the other side of the veil

10. Have some fun!
The west portent in feng shui is a playful type of energy. It's all about letting your inner child come out to play. Is there something you love to do that takes you back to your childhood? Take some time to think about how you can become deliciously enthusiastic about anything!
