Hello, hello, hello good readers and fine people. It is a pleasure to be here among all of you serving up the monthly snippets. I feel strong and frisky so let's get started right away with the juicy morsels and succulent tidbits that await us all in July 2016.

Our National 4th of July holiday celebration is here again. Enjoy yourselves, the Fireworks displays shall be magnificent, the food better than magnificent and the atmosphere brave and loving, with a strong emphasis on family ties and solidarity. Salute the American Flag, and when the National Anthem plays, sing along, like so;

Oh say can you see in the dawns early light how proudly she hails in the twilight's last gleaming....... And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof to the night that our flag is still here. Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave, in the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

(Francis Scott Key wrote these lyrics in 1814 as a poem and it was put to music in 1931.)”

Let me repeat this savvy advice, have a grand old time and wherever you find your self and whoever you bring along, enjoy yourself. Salute the American Flag, and when this Patriotic Ballad plays sing along, like so;

This land is my land this land, this land is your land, from California to the New York Island. From the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters this land was made for you and me..............”

OK we all had a jolly good time over July 2nd and 3rd and now Monday morning July 4th dawns bright and clear and guess what? Well gee party time is here again with the New Moon in Cancer, wow what good fun! More good news, Monday July 4tth we are already 5 days out of Mars Retrograde in Scorpio and into the shadow period which lasts until August 22, 2016. (Hugs and laughter and roars of joy and much jolly hoopla celebrating!)

The Mars post shadow station began on June 29th, 2016. Hmmm, looks like all of this retrograde blast from the past energy is almost done, eh? Wrong. Truly not so ladies and gents. Best read on..............
