“The Whirling Rainbow is the promise of peace among all Nations and all people. The Rainbow Race stresses equality and opposes the idea of a superior race that would control or conquer other races. The Rainbow Race brings peace through the understanding that all races are one. The unity of all colors, all creeds working together for the good of the whole, is the idea that is embodied in the Whirling Rainbow. When all pathways to wholeness are respected by all cultures, the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow will be completed. – Jamie Sams, The Sacred Path Cards

FireRainbow For years I’ve been fascinated by Native American teachings. Perhaps it’s the Colorado territory I grew up in, so rich in stories of cowboys and Indians, playing in creek beds where red men roamed, finding arrowheads and riding horses across mesa tops, dreaming of buffalo and watching the sun set behind the peak-studded horizons of my youth. Or maybe it’s in my blood, where a genetic past-life memory lingers. According to my Grandfather, his forefathers came over on the Mayflower. And one of my Grandmother’s ancestors was the first recorded fatality in the Revolutionary War. Plenty of time to interbreed. Whatever the case, fantasy or reality, I hear the voice and feel the heart of the people who lived and loved these American lands long before the white man ever saw it.

Rainbow ms1 Today we walk a path of mystery. We have established a country and government far from the days of tipis and tribal councils. Scientists define physics while politicians, lawyers and judges rule social, legal and judicial realms. Religions are in turmoil and spirituality is up for grabs. And thank God. For this I am grateful. I can pray to the Great Spirit and bless the Mother Earth. I can walk the good red road and look forward to the blue road of spirit. I can read the teachings of the Hopi, Seneca, Maya, Aztec, Toltec, Yaqui, Navajo, Apache, Cheyenne and Lakota as passed down from their Elders and embrace the power and wisdom of their words.

Red leaves As we embark upon the first phase of autumn, we are surrounded with brilliant color and light. The magnificent beauty of the Libra sun time shimmers with gold and dances in shades of peach and crimson, painted upon a canvas of verdant greens. How lucky we are to live and breathe this beauty and bounty. Can we rise above our human differences, resentments and competitions to unite in equality and peace as Warriors of the Rainbow? Will the teachings and prophecies of the indigenous peoples have the strength and power to penetrate the fear and greed-based veils of illusion that prevent us from seeing clearly? 2012 is a year of collective and individual quickening and awakening. May we be awakened.


Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) As Venus moves through the last degrees of Libra, your solar 7th house of partnership, all matters of settlement and negotiation are favored.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) Be as open-minded and spiritually magnanimous as possible with others this week. The world and universe wants to see and feel your authentic goodness, kind heart and loving grace. Negative thinking and hurtful acts have no place in your life right now. Focus on what’s right rather than what’s wrong. You have been given so much, share the wealth.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) You may discover great compassion for another or feel a deep wound heal as a realistic dose of love and clarity soothe your spirit and calm your soul. Life is a struggle, no matter who you are. Money, beauty, brains and brawn – ultimately we’re all the same and we’re here to learn. Bless the earth, walk with forgiveness and experience the freedom of peace.
