Bless Your Child With The Name
What a dreamer I am when thinking about parenthood. Most of the time, I do this without knowing to whom my heart will belong and who will share that sacred responsibility. Even though, I am connected with the billions of souls that have always faced the stars at night to decide on what would be the perfect name for our not-yet-conceived little angels
"If is a boy? I'll name him?; or if is a girl? I'll name her?" And yes, it is far more important to ask the spirits for the baby to come healthy, but at least our children should have the right to know when people outside the family are referring to them.
Although I've heard some funny names, I am not in a position to say that any parent wasn't serious enough. On the contrary, I prefer to forward some ideas to socially bless your angels forever.
Start with the stars
Astrology gives each newborn the beginning and end dates of the twelve Sun signs. Originally referred to as Star Sign, a Sun Sign represents the Zodiac Sign that the Sun is in at the time of birth. The Sun rules willpower and ego, that is: who you are and what you are about.
Now if you are gratefully expecting - and men also are part of this experience -, then you may start reading the birth chart with the Eighth House, where conception begins. During the nine months of pregnancy, the cycle travels from the beginning of the Eighth House to the ascendant, which represents the moment of birth, the baby's first breath. Using this method, the First House represents babyhood, the next house represents childhood, the next one is the teen years, and so on.
Many elements may form our children's personality, from our way of raising them to the experiences that they'll have to spirituality itself. But before you ask why little Prudence is picky; why Casey doesn't allow brothers to play with him; or why Alma 's apprenticeship takes too much, let me remind you that astrology plays a fundamental role here. For instance, the Zodiac Sun Sign calendar brings enlightenment even to the most uninformed mind. After reading it, there is a brief description on each Sun Sign and their influence on our baby's behavior.
These are the dates that correspond to the Sun Sign for 2005. Realize that the dates can vary from year to year.
March 21 - April 19 Aries April 20 - May 20 Taurus May 21 - June 21 Gemini June 22 - July 22 Cancer July 23 - August 22 Leo August 23 - September 22 Virgo September 23 - October 22 Libra October 23 - November 21 Scorpio November 22 - December 21 Sagittarius December 22 - January 19 Capricorn January 20 - February 18 Aquarius February 19 - March 20 Pisces
Aries : Spirits in the sky give this Fire Sign baby so much energy that parents must channel it with lot of love. Also, the Aries baby can be quite independent but enjoys interacting with others.
Taurus : Playthings will be very important to this Earth Sign baby because it rules the second house (possessions), so parents should try to make him/her comfortable but grounded at the same time.
Gemini : Will be curious, creative, the speaker of groups, but loving parents need to stimulate this Air Sign baby for him/her to be happy, as their character is mutable.
Cancer : This Water Sign baby is very creative but also is all about feelings. He/she needs to feel protected and will easily pick up any bad vibes in the household.
Leo : A totally determined force, this Fire Sign baby will be a leader. Parents will get loads of fun, but less of sleep in the meantime.
Virgo : This Earth Sign tot doesn't require a lot to be happy. It's a perfectionist and happy to help others. Although it has a mutable character, it's a pretty good kid.
Libra : Here could be the next lawyer or judge. This Air Sing baby displays its social and diplomat qualities when surrounded in groups.
Scorpio : This is quite the manipulative little Water Sign tot, is also a bit mysterious, making it hard to figure out what's wrong when the crying starts.
Sagittarius : Independent and free-spirited, this Fire Sign baby explores everything, whether it's a new toy or a new friend. Parents, be ready to have your house full of little friends.
Capricorn : Rule by the Earth Sign, this tot will be creative and determined. They also understand things better as they get older and appreciate the merits of a reward system.
Aquarius : The companionship of friends and others will be quite important to this Air Sign baby, even if they don't know how to demonstrate it. For that reason, this is a pattern of behavior that should be encouraged.
Pisces : C hangeable in character, this Water Sign baby is a dreamer by nature and it benefits from an added dose of attention, whether it comes from parents or sibs.
New Age Baby Names
I am happy to say that there are some New Age books and New Age sites with more than 20,000 names and combination of names for people to choose the way they want to bless their angels. Those names are derived from ancient cultures such as Native American, Gaelic, Anglicized, Swahili, Arabic, Native Hawaiian, Old Welch and Middle English. And there are different forms of building an original one through anagrams, telescoping, respelling and with the usage of numerology.

The Value of Play
Isn't it ironic that a country whose constitution allows for the pursuit of happiness now feels a collective guilt about the very idea of anything fun? How did this happen?

Even given the Puritan work ethic, life in America has become so unbalanced that one side of the seesaw is pretty much grounded.But why must we insist that our children, who by their very nature are playful, share these particular values? Why are we so anxious for our children to "act like adults?"But wait, you may be thinking, kids play plenty these days.
