I like the principle of the Sankofa Bird, which says that in order to understand the future we must understand the past. When I see a new client I always go back over the past five years or so to see where they’ve been before I can help them to see what the future might hold, and the same holds true for global predictions. The Romans held the same principle in their god Janus, who looks both forwards and backwards and rules the month of January – the first month […]
The New Moon occurs in Leo on August 9th at 11:08 pm (Eastern time). The lunation itself (the Sun/Moon conjunction) makes no aspects to any other planet, which suggests that the power of self-expression can act forcefully, unencumbered by any other influence. This is a wonderful time to start a new creative venture, or a program to market your business. Anything that puts YOU on center stage is appropriate with this New Moon. Leo is about celebration and joy, but there is a dark side as well. On the Astrodynamics […]
As Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto align in the big Cardinal Drama that is 2010′s biggest astrological story, a shocking revelation of 90,000 classified intelligence report concerning the war in Afghanistan have been leaked via the Wikileaks website: WikiLeaks.org — a whistleblower website — published on Sunday what it says are more than 90,000 United States military and diplomatic reports about Afghanistan filed between 2004 and January of this year. The first-hand accounts are the military’s own raw data on the war, including numbers killed, casualties, threat reports and the […]
Saturday’s Full Moon is also a partial lunar eclipse, and includes a powerful alignment of seven planets in a Grand Cross formation. Let’s first look at the lunation (lunar event) itself. The Sun in Cancer is opposed by the Moon in Capricorn, and because the lunar nodes are within 15 degrees of the Moon (in this case the nodes are 8 degrees from the Moon) the lunation becomes an eclipse. This in itself is significant, because the lunar nodes are connected to the evolutionary journey of the soul, from past […]
Saturn is at its last degree of Libra today before retrograding back into Virgo tomorrow (Tuesday) at around 3:30 pm Eastern time. Saturn has been in Libra since last fall where it has been creating tests and challenges in the areas of partnerships and beauty, as well as our aesthetic ideals. Virgo is the sign that deals with issues of day-to-day life in a body. The food we eat, the mind body connection and our health, our day-to-day routines such as the work that we get up for every day, […]
The new CIA warnings that Al Qaeda will attempt an attack on the United States in the next 3-6 months is not a surprise to those of us monitoring the stars. The square of Saturn to Pluto that occurred on January 31st, just two days before the announcement, is an aspect of fear and challenge. After all, the opposition of Saturn to Pluto, the last major cycle of these two planets, coincided with the attacks of September 11. The final phase of the Saturn/Pluto square occurs August 21st and that would […]
You’ll be hearing a lot more about this planetary event over the next few months and years. Ray Merriman is calling the event the “Cardinal Climax,” and astrologer Gary Caton in this recent article in The Mountain Astrologer is calling it the “Cardinal Crisis.” This is an alignment of planets in cardinal signs that will continue to create change in our inner and outer worlds. The cardinal signs are the signs of action, and with various planets conflicting with each other in cardinal signs there will be a great deal of […]
I spoke about this on the radio show August 9th and since I’m working on a big writing project I thought I’d post the link so you can take a listen if you didn’t hear it already. At some point I’ll convert this into an article and post it on my website but meanwhile have a listen. Remember we’re on Itunes now as a podcast (you must have Itunes on your computer). If you listen on Itunes please leave a review and rate the show! thank you.
