Learning to trust the future

Astrologers have a reputation, which we ourselves and our forbears have propagated, of being able to foretell the future.  The hunger to know the future is not, of course, limited to astrology.  Climatologists, stockbrokers, economists – all are paid to predict the future.  All fail miserably.  (I have always wondered why these three fields of expertise are typically more respected than astrologers, when astrology is more accurate than any of them!!)

As we leave 2018 behind and welcome a new year, blog posts predicting what will take place in 2019 are beginning to spring up, and I’m working on my own post of the Astrology of 2019.  However, while we can witness the unfolding of planetary cycles and see correspondences between these cycles and current events, it is mainly in the rear view mirror that it all makes sense.  Very rarely are we able to make accurate predictions of what is to come.

In our personal lives we long to know the outcome of our personal situations.  As one client brilliantly wrote me in frustration that astrology could not provide a clear map for him, “It is difficult for me, who feels blind about many things in life, to see a possible path to the answers, and that I feel on the edge of great personal discoveries, without the ability to really obtain them.”  I have certainly experienced those same feelings, and for many years I studied every aspect of my life through an astrological lens, hoping to find a clue to the future.

It’s just not possible.

It’s not possible to know the future because we are on a journey of self-discovery.  Religious people have a hard and fast belief system that tells them what their future holds, and […]

How the Christ surpassed Yahweh at the dawn of the Piscean age

yahweh I posted this a few years ago but it’s still my favorite post for this time of year.  Because the earth orbits at a slight tilt, and the tilt of the orbit changes over time, the celestial equator is always moving and the vernal equinox is always moving along the ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun around the Earth from our perspective.  We call this the “Precession of the Equinoxes,” and that is what we mean when we talk about the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Pisces, etc.

There is no accepted timeline for the transition from one Great Age to another.  The Great Year is approximately 26,000 years and each Age spans approximately 2160 years. However, because cultural changes mark the shift between ages it becomes somewhat easier to define these transitions.

Yahweh, the god of the ancient Hebrews, was a warrior god- Moses says so right in Exodus in the Bible:  “The Lord is a warrior/man of war.”  In Isaiah 42:13 we find this exclamation: “The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.”

There is a great deal of confusion in the Bible over the name of God – both El and YHWH (Yahweh) are used interchangeably.  However, that El was a senior god in Canaan: a beneficent god who presided over creation and ruled over the more junior warrior gods such as Baal and Astarte.  The use of the plural for god in the Bible – “Elohim” – could refer to the family of Canaanite gods that included not only Baal and Astarte but also El’s consort […]

All hail the Cancerian Full Moon at the Winter Solstice!

The astrological Solstice occurs when the Sun enters Capricorn (for my Southern Hemisphere friends this is actually the Summer Solstice).  Solstices and Equinoxes are important energetic gateways having to do with the balance of light and darkness.  At the Winter Solstice, the days are at their shortest and as humans we are pulled inwards into deep soul reflection.

The astrology of the Solstice Full Moon

This year, a Full Moon at zero degrees Cancer marks the entry of the Sun into Capricorn.  The Full Moon is the height of the lunar cycle – the lunar energy of instinct and emotional truth is maximized, and the power fueled by the realm of feelings is at its height.  At the same time, the cycle of darkness and light is at its nadir.  The combination of these two effects opens a portal of energy which we can use to effect powerful change in our own life.  And I believe, in the world around us.

When the Moon is full in Cancer, it opposes the Capricorn Sun, also at zero degrees.  The Cancer/Capricorn polarity asks that we balance the realm of emotion and the inner life of the soul (Cancer) with the world of the trappings of the material world: success, structure, rules and order.  But at the Full Moon the lunar influence is at its most powerful, drawing us more deeply into the inner world of feelings.

The Cancerian Full Moon is packed full of feeling and emotion, and the power of that emotion has the potential to transform your life for good and for ill.  When we harness our emotions to our Will, we create magic.  A little bit of intention can go a long way towards creating a lasting and positive transformation and that […]

The astrology of the 2018 US stock market rollercoaster

If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ll remember that the financial collapse of 2008 coincided with the entry of Pluto, planet of destruction and regeneration, into the contracting sign of Capricorn after spending 13 expansive years in optimistic Sagittarius.

At the end of December 2017, Saturn (tests, challenges and the reality principle) moved into its own sign of Capricorn which tends to make people somewhat cautious and risk-averse.  The first big dip of the year took place between February 1st and 5th under a challenging aspect from Venus to Jupiter.  Venus and Jupiter are known as the two “benefic” planets, even when a challenging aspect between the two occurs, but in this case the overindulgence of Venus and Jupiter was countermanded by the cautious nature of Saturn in Capricorn, causing a pullback in the optimism that tends to cause stock prices to rise.

Stock prices were back up into positive territory between mid-February and mid-March but dropped back into the negative when Mars (action) entered Capricorn and Jupiter (expansion) turned retrograde in the middle of March.  Stock prices remained quite volatile but never really developed any upward traction until the 9th of July when we began to see steady improvement in the markets after Jupiter turned direct.

It’s difficult to make predictions where human nature is concerned, and the stock market is largely a reflection of human reactions to news.  When people are optimistic, they buy into markets (stock market, housing market – whatever market!) which increases prices, and when they are fearful they tend to sell.  Sometimes expansive periods of Jupiter are associated with greater optimism and higher prices, and sometimes we see a peak of prices and then profit-taking which results in lower prices.

At any rate, once Jupiter turned […]
