We are winding down on our spring fair season and moving into our national fair schedule. During the cardinal climax summer, I am planning on staying closer to home in June/July since it will be affecting me and doing phone consultations, some writing and working on a new book as well as the Maria Shaw Radio Network.
This week we are off but Saturday May 8th we will be at our psychic fair in Lapeer Center Building, 10a.m. to 5p.m. It's a great Mother's Day outing and we have some beautiful new gemstone jewelry from NYC just in.
The 15 and 16th we will be in Port Huron and then Lansing for our psychic fairs.
Then Saturday June 5th, back in Grand Blanc MI at our new location the Comfort Inn.
Then pretty much, the fairs are done locally until the fall. I'll be in New Orleans and Minneapolis for our regular psychic fairs there in August.
|The Maria Shaw Radio Network News
Besides the various mornings radio shows I do every week, you can soon listen to me on my new radio network in the coming weeks. Thanks to website guru and all around Sagittarius "sweetheart of a guy", Rich, Joe and I will host a regular show available on demand anytime of the day or night, called the Maria Shaw Show with Joe Lawson, featuring topics of interest, astrological and otherwise.
If you've listened to our syndicated show on CBS Radio Network, it will be similar. We'll have more updates we get closer to the program debut. We've heard from a lot of folks who used to tune into our daily gabfest and miss it. So we decided to get our own network up and running. You can still listen every Monday to me on WJIM 97.5FM (Lansing) KLAZ (Hot Springs), Thursday, I'm on WHNN 96.1 and WIOG 102.5 in Saginaw, WFBE 95.1 in Flint . On Friday you can listen to WKHQ in Northern Michigan and The Spur in Hot Springs. Also monthly on KFAT in Anchorage Alaska, and other stations around the country that include WWL (New Orleans), KQ in Minny and KS95FM in Minneapolis too!

April does not end quietly. In addition to Venus' near simultaneous aspects to Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, the Goddess of Love is scheduled to enter fickle Gemini Saturday night. This sets the stage for a lively, dramatic and flirtatious social climate during the final weekend of the month. All this is just a warm-up act; there's no need to worry about life being dull!
On Monday the 26th Saturn again opposes Uranus. You may recall, this is the tense, history-making aspect that has been in effect since the fall of 2008. As expected it has wrought financial, political and more recently, geological instability. Some of the Earth's quaking and shaking is attributable to Pluto, now in square to both Saturn and Uranus. Keep your wits about you. Have alternative and emergency plans at the ready over the next few days!
The Moon is also waxing full. The Scorpio Full Moon is exact Wednesday at 8:19 am EDT. This lunation is said to evoke the spirit of the Buddha. Meditate on his presence and hopefully you'll gain some calm amidst the ongoing astrological storms. The last two days of the month promise to feel kinder and gentler. The 30th looks like a perfect time for a getaway.

Why I Meditate
by Christopher Lawrence Castro
Three years ago I held onto a thin thread to what spiritual teachers call awareness. I knew there was more out there the way Albert Einstein knew that imagination is more important than knowledge. Decades ago Prophets wearing funny robes and dated sandals spoke that one day we would wake up and observe that "peace will guide our planet and Love will steer the stars."
On this planet called Earth we undergo a metamorphosis in our lives. It happens to everyone similar to the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. From the outside it looks like it does not have a choice but there is a choice, one it makes when it is sleeping inside of its chrysalis. My awakening happened at a touch of a heart, a kiss of the lips; a discovery of "what" I was searching for was actually a "who." When the information collided inside my heart and then my brain, I felt the collision of two planets spilling a million answers. The problem, if such a thing can exist, was that I did not know what answer went with the question.
In Florida we met a wise man named Jimmy Vitakis who helped us to look at the world and then match the tiny dots to the bigger ones. You should have seen what turned out! He guided us gently back into our self and back into our hearts. His famous words, "Look" irritated me more than a thirty minute chaff in ninety degree weather. Lotion anyone? I looked despite this boring solution but not with my eyes opened; alternatively he asked us to seal them. "Eyes can be a weakness," he said but somehow this is where and how I found my peace. It is said that meditating is a way of eavesdropping on the mind, which in turn is creating the whole Universe at the same time you are looking at it.
Tapping into our inner wisdom helps us to clear up the clutter of answers and questions we have dwelling inside. Once we arrive to this sacred temple of liveliness something compassionate touches us. When I mediate, preferably in the morning, I light a candle, close my eyes and fold my hands on my lap or place one hand on my heart. I focus on the feelings and the sounds of my heart beat pacing throughout my body. Sometimes I focus on nothing and permit my mind to go wherever it would like too. Sometimes I even ask questions like "Who am I, what is my talent, what is my purpose, how can I heal? And what is the cure to Fords declining stock prices?" sometimes I get answers, other times I hear, "Sorry kid, there's no hope."
Usually after this a burst of creative emotions spill out of my fingers or my lips. Something emerges, it has no choice, it wants too. When we mediate we open ourselves to forgive and ask for forgiveness. We open ourselves to the child inside of us, the play and the Love. We invite the invisible and the mysterious; the insight, the soul, the spirit, the creativity, the courage; the strength. Mediation is a circuit of energy that infuses you with more light, more strength and more wisdom. It enables us to see past the physical into the realm of all possibilities. Delve into it at least twice a week and truth will shed its clothes before you, just bear in mind that some truth does not look great naked! Prepare to be awakened.
In Love, Christopher Lawrence Castro
Nice Letters We Get
I just got done reading your newsletter. I like how you were talking about the Cardinal Climax and choosing our roads. I just read a saying yesterday about roads and it inspired me so much that I printed it out and put it on my door at home. So, after reading your newsletter it inspired me to share it with you…."It doesn't matter too much how difficult the road ahead may look…It is still a road and roads go places!"
I met Joe and you at your Valentine's Fun Fair in Roseville, Mn. this February. I had a reading with Joe and he gave me a lot of insight on my life as it is now and my future. I truly enjoyed the experience from you both and look forward to seeing you again when you come back to Minnesota.
Staying on the road,
I became involved in a wonderful relationship with a man I got reacquainted with in May 2008! We had met a couple of times before that through my husband who passed away in Jan 2007. We emailed and spoke on the phone through out the summer, by the end of the summer we went for a motorcycle ride with other friends I knew through my late husband and he was also a friend with. After that we started dating then living together on the weekends! I emailed you the one question last summer, cause there were things that were confusing me about him! Your information was very helpful and helped us make it through some rough spots!
I always love reading your newsletter. You know how it feels when you go to the mailbox and there's a letter or card in the midst of the bills and junk mail? THAT is I feel when I see your newsletter in my inbox!
I'm sure you get lots of e-mails, so I'll try and keep this short. I had a reading with you and Joe back in February (with my Mom, Diana) in Roseville, MN. Anyhow, you told me that it was time to part ways with the military. I've achieved a lot of success in the military and it's the only job I've had where I was really recognized and valued. They are even sending me to Croatia for 2 weeks at the end of the week...talk about perks!
Anyhow, even though I had the reading with you, I've been questioning the transition into going into business for myself. I want to do custom paper products (invitations, gift tags, thank you cards) and party decorations. In your newsletter, you stated that whatever presented itself to me from May to November 2008 was my new life. That just so happens to be when I started this job. May was when it was offered to me and I started in September, so this confused me even more, but wait...this job is what introduced me to graphic design and gave me lots and lots of expensive training. Aha! It's all coming full circle.
Soooooo, then I reflected on your story about the divorcee and her new boyfriend and how she was on the fence. I totally relate. Yes, the military has been a great stepping-stone, but by staying put, I'm allowing myself to plateau! It's not like things would be so bad, but they would get any better.
Anyhow, you're probably thinking, 'Duh!' =-) But I am now able to see part of the big picture now. Thank you for giving me the Aha! moment that I so desperately needed! Have a beautiful week!
I just wanted to let you know your recent starscopes really resonated with me. I have bounced back and forth between two relationships for about the last 3 years, still trying to live in the past. It is pretty crazy, the one man I have a lot of feelings for and the other seems to pick me up when I fall. I still love the one very much, and talk to him pretty regular. I am coming to the point were I don't want to go back. You want what you remember being so good, but in actuality it was not. It is really very funny, I was thinking earlier about how I needed to let go of the past, and strive to meet new people. I came home and checked my email only to read that message, and it really hit home for me. Thank you for the profound message.
I was just ready your StarScopes April 21 comment. I had emailed you a question and you responded to me on 3/26/10. 9. I am 61 almost and after 20 years my husband and I are forced to foreclose on our house do to business that failed. It is so hard to try to move on and not feel like you are a failure in this situation. We are planning on moving to Az for the winters. And I wonder all the time is this the right decision that I am making. I will be quitting my job and going to AZ . My husband is 66 and is not in the best health. But I really admire you because you have God in the picture as trusting and leaving it up to God.
It was great to see you Sunday- thank you for the reading.
I have to tell you the irony - (I just shook my head and dropped jaw :~) During our session- you asked me if I knew a Tony- or Anthony... and then talked about face book or myspace. You said I wouldn't know a lot about him....
WELL- yesterday I came home from a workshop in Detroit, and checked my myspace page. Suddenly, it said- "You have one new friend request".... I opened it- and it was from a guy named Tony age 49 from Holland MI. He doesn't have a picture up on his profile and only has 12 friends as of now- but he has NO information on his page at all. It made me a tad bit leery so, I sent him an email reply back (because he said he saw my pictures on myspace and decided we should be friends)... (it felt rather weird to me... the gut feeling..) any how, I emailed back and told him thank you for the request- but wanted to know something of him (or to even see a picture) so I knew who it was that wanted to be friends with me. (I rarely read my myspace page any more)- that is where I have all of my poetry that I have written the past few years.
Anyhow, I just wanted tell you about the email I received from this Tony person. Thanks!
Just read your latest newsletter and once again, thank you for putting my comments (this one I think was from the card I gave you guys...how sweet you are!!) in the "Nice letters we get". I feel very blessed to be acknowledged in such a way. Thank you so much!
I have been so intrigued by your writings of the Cardinal Climax. I remember how long and difficult it was for me to finally leave my last marriage. I understand how it is to hang on to the security of familiarity despite the fact that the situation has changed...and for the worse. Learning to let go was a huge lesson for me back in 2001-2002, and it's carried over to my present life, especially in choosing to let go of toxic relationships. Some people are like psychic or spiritual vampires and simply take and hurt...and why do so many of us put up with them? Letting go has really made me a happier person.
The future is wide open and the possibilities are only limited by what I do to hold things back, as God makes anything possible.
