Many spam calls lately have been offering to collect my debts from clients who haven’t paid. I don’t do business like that. If they pay, they get service. If not, they don’t. That way I don’t contribute to them going into debt.
BIG FAT BIZNESS SECRET:
If you make people pay, they will pay. Those who don’t will go elsewhere and make room for those who do pay. They really will.

Hello and welcome to the SEPT 2021 issue of Horizons Magazine. This time last year I was pouring over seed catalogs and deciding what to plant in October when it cools off. Tomatoes, collards, kale and peppers for vegetables; Thai, lemon and holy basils, rosemary and parsley for herbs and I began dozens of sunflowers. My entire back porch turned into a greenhouse for seedlings and garden supplies and I was out there all hours.
By July this year, 8 months later, the tomatoes and peppers were almost done, the herbs and collards still going strong. It was a rewarding project but a lot of work. In retrospect, I shouldn’t have begun a vegetable garden at the same time I was transplanting dozens of tree saplings to my west yard for privacy from the new home built next door. But it paid off because now, just one year later, there’s a line of trees and bushes giving us privacy between our properties, and my west yard is lush and green again.

Aries – (March 19 – April 18)
ARIES: MOOD FOR SEPTEMBER 2021
You are in great shape, perhaps a little agitated. All month long, successive influences push you to reach out to others, collaborate, exchange, and love… Your moods are changeable but somewhat balanced, and you can nurture interesting, enriching, or profitable communication with your loved ones. You consolidate your achievements, settle down in a particular material or moral ease, leave room for others, and enrich your relationships by stronger or more numerous bonds. This is an excellent month to meet new people and charm some of them.
There’s a storm out there. During times like this, it’s important to remember that if you’re in the path of it, prepare as well as you can, then know that it can pass right over you and NOT leave you devastated. Your home can be left standing when all around it may not. Remember that is a possibility and it’s tied to your belief and expectation. It’s possible for every one of us to experience the storm fully, yet be unharmed and un-inconvenienced by it. Knowing that and believing that helps.
BE A VISION KEEPER FOR LOVED ONES IN THE PATH OF THE STORM
If we’re NOT in the path of the storm but have loved ones who are, we can help them right where we are, sitting in bed in our pajamas. When The Weather Channel shows the storm front moving closer and closer, we can watch the storm image on the screen with the sound muted, take it into our meditation and do some Vision Keeper work.

When I got to my desk this morning, I saw Tuxedo Sam had walked across my keyboard overnight and typed a bunch of gobbledy gook. But it seemed like a whole lotta typing for a walk across and seemed to have a rhythm to the number keys. As I’m looking at the letters on the screen and looking at the keys, I almost think I see a word but then it’s gone. When I’m lazy I sometimes typo a 3 instead of an e. When I shifted my attention from the 3 on the keyboard to the line below where the e is, suddenly I began to see words. Kinda. Then I saw them clearly.
I think Mercury Retrograde gets a bad rap. Since Mercury rules communication, people love to say “oh everything’s going wrong, that’s Mercury retrograde for you,” and that’s not the case at all. Mercury Retrograde just means review, reconsider, return for more info. Pay extra attention to detail. Check everything twice. Slow down during this time, to be as effective as you can be. The way to make the most of Mercury retrograde is to not let it have any power over you. Stop keeping track of when it is. If you can’t do that, then make Mercury retrograde a time for you to be extra careful paying attention to details.

The August mag is now online at August 2021 Horizons and here are the horoscopes.
Aries – (March 19 – April 18)
There is room for to luck, dear Aries. If you want to create a project or if you want to change your life the planets give you incredible possibilities. No rush, take time for reflection but there are no difficulties to foresee. Your close entourage supports all your efforts. Family is your pillar, you show them all your affection. You are happy with your loved ones, nothing can change that, you enjoy their company, in return you receive a good dose of comfort. It is also the month of confidences. A rich emotional life at the end of the summer, friends around you, the presence of your partner, you lack absolutely nothing. The stars offer you romanticism and loyal friendships. Summer ends with great pomp, offers of engagement and commitment … Life is beautiful for our Aries friends.
Some pals were irked I’m still using links to Doreen Virtue’s Clearing and Balancing the Chakras from Doreen Virtue’s “The Lightworker’s Way” since she denounced new age stuff. Helpful work speaks for itself. It doesn’t matter if she now denounces her previous work as “unbiblical” and “of the devil.” That’s just where she is in her journey right now. Being unbiblical is not a bad thing since “the bible” has been changed by political rulers for thousands of years. What may have begun as “the word of God” has gone thru so many translations (think: telephone game) and revisions that it’s hard to find the word of God in it. So when someone’s defense is “it’s in the Bible,” that just means the speaker believes that is the final word of God. Just know where they’re coming from.

I believe everything I experience comes to me somehow in corelation to the sum of my thoughts, my overall thought pattern. When I focus on making life happy, I find happiness. When I begin focusing on a problem, life gets hectic, aches and pains appear. It’s easy to ignore aggravating Facebook posts and steer clear of personality conflicts, but some things CAN’T be ignored, like a leaky roof or a water pump going out. Some things I’ve gotta focus on long enough to resolve. I’ve learned that how easily I let myself resolve it will determine how everything else gets resolved as well. The past 2 years I’ve been kinda tripping with having sprained first one hand/wrist then the other, but also tending to necessary house repairs. I know if I can stay off them for 6 weeks, it’ll be good as new. But about week 4 when it begins feeling better, I start using them again and re-injure. And hafta start over, again and again, blah blah blah. My own fault. My mom had hand and wrist problems and I began to wonder if it was hereditary or just that we both typed for a living. As usual, Abraham-Hicks gave great clarity on the question.
