Vibrational shifts

I’ve been seeing an increased number of postings on panic and anxiety, and I admit to having some problems myself in this area. For me it began during the opposition of Saturn to Neptune that affected a sensitive point in my chart. Perhaps this is because of the conjunction of Pluto to the Galactic Center; perhaps its part of the changes that occurred beginning during the Uranus-Neptune conjunction in 1993. Several of you have written to me about your own difficulties with the increasingly intense energy that we are channeling in our bodies to which some of us are more sensitive than others.

Susan Custer has a n this very subject. This mirrors my experience exactly:

Many of us are living in two worlds. When we step out of our homes or normal routines, there is an off-putting energy. It makes us slightly dizzy, confused, or agitated. When we step out into the mundane world, we’re in a different vibration and our strengthened intuitive senses are bombarded. This has been amplified by the opposition between Saturn and Neptune. On June 25, Saturn will make its final pass in this phase to Neptune. Neptune is creativity and sensitivity, and Saturn is grounding and manifesting. With the opposition, we have to figure out how to incorporate this new sensitivity and intuition in a comfortable way.

Our instincts are expanding. Even though we’re in another dimension, we’re still in tune with the frequencies of the Earth. If you suddenly make a misstep, your world spins, or a chill goes up your spine, you may be feeling an earthquake thousands of miles away.

This is a time to spend more time focusing within and strengthening our bonds with our inner self and guides because a great deal of trust and faith […]

Transformation in 2007

The AOL astrology department sent me this link, and my practical Capricorn Mars is thinking it’s a pretty good thing to be noticed by AOL. Jeff Jawer (owner of the ) is a great astrology writer. On upcoming planetary cycles in 2007 he writes:

Controlled enthusiasm and well-managed risk-taking are major themes for 2007. Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and expansion, is back in its adventurous home sign of Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years. This is great news for long-distance travelers, truth seekers and those interested in advancing their education. Unconventional Uranus forms tense 90-degree angle squares with Jupiter on Jan. 22, May 10 and Oct. 9, which can trigger impulsive behavior. Brilliant breakthroughs in awareness are possible, but a desire to suddenly turn your life in a totally new direction should be tempered with a strong dose of common sense. It’s natural to be excited, restless and ready to move into a world of ideas and experiences you’ve never seen before, but the unexpected inspiration can disappear as quickly as it came if you act without proper preparation.

Serious Saturn is in Leo until Sept. 2. The planet of hard, cold reality in this expressive fire sign favors creativity and a playful spirit. However, the challenge is to apply inventive instincts in practical ways and with a lasting purpose in mind. When Saturn enters technically proficient Virgo on Sept. 2, it’s time to upgrade skills. Careful attention to detail becomes vital. Saturn’s presence in health-conscious Virgo is a signal to ensure that you eat properly, exercise and take your vitamins. Direct oppositions from the ringed planet to nebulous Neptune began at the end of August last year and repeat in both late February and late June […]

Full Moon tomorrow and other planetary news

On January 1 Mars made a sextile to Neptune, harmonizing the aggressive instinct (Mars) with a heightened sensitivity and compassion (Neptune). Our drive for action is tempered over the next couple of days with concern for the feelings of others, and our physical energy is channeled into pursuits that have a higher purpose. Neptune is not content with mundane reality but demands that we pursue a relationship with the divine essence within us. This is a wonderful time for creative endeavors such as art or music.

On January 3 Venus (planet of love and values) leaves the earthy sign of Capricorn where it has brought practicality to our relationships for the more intellectual sign of Aquarius. In Aquarius Venus seeks fair play and honesty in all relationships and may be unconventional. We may suddenly find ourselves interested in people that are very different from us, or new acquaintances may enter our lives and bring the unexpected. This same day (and for the next day or two) Mercury (communication) harmonizes with Uranus (innovation and radical change), bringing new and original ideas and insights, accelerating the thought process and enabling understanding at new levels of awareness. Uranus opens the doorway to other dimensions of consciousness, and the harmonious aspects with Mercury can bring radical change to the way we think about an issue.

These influences set the stage for the Full Moon in Cancer that takes place at 8:59 am EST on the 3rd. The Moon makes a trine to Uranus, accentuating even further the Uranian (unusual) quality to this period. The Full Moon occurs when the […]

Henry and I both got it wrong

My regular readers know that earlier this year I had forecast a difficult year for the stock market. Six planets retrograde over the summer and a difficult aspect between Jupiter (optimism and prosperity) and Saturn (discipline and disappointment) filled me with trepidation over the financial markets. Evidently I was not alone: Henry Weingarten, one of the foremost financial astrologers in the US and manager of the Astrologers Fund, also predicted a “hellish stock market and a recession.”

Why was he so wrong about 2006? Mr. Weingarten based his outlook on his expectation that another terrorist attack would occur on American shores this year, and that the country would be going into a recession in the third or fourth quarter.

Although admittedly wrong, our stargazer says certain market trends, coupled with some astrological readings with a distinctly negative bias, pretty much ensure grim tidings ahead.

While the market could stage a brief rally in January, things will change radically before the end of the month, he says. In brief, he expects the market to “come down hard” by March 30, with the Dow falling between 500 and 1,000 points. An even bigger drop — on the order of 10% to 20% — is seen occurring during the same time period in the Nasdaq, which he believes is now totally stalled.

I disagree with this assessment. I feel that the stock market remained strong because of the determined optimism of Jupiter’s passage through Scorpio, which rules other people’s money and therefore the stock market, as well as the continued travel of Pluto through Sagittarius and its irrational exuberance. The astrological indicators are relatively benign for 2007. Except for the ongoing opposition of Saturn […]

Looking backwards to look ahead

happy new yearThe Romans celebrated the first day of the year as a festival to Janus, their god of gates, doors, beginnings and endings. They named the month of January after him, and portrayed him with two faces: one looking back and one looking forward. Janus presided over transition from past to future, the passage from childhood to adulthood and into old age. One of his faces was often portrayed clean-shaven with the other bearded.

Gates and doors are both portals from one experience to another. We enter through a gate and leave a part of ourselves behind; we enter the world of the unknown when we transition from one phase to another. Sometimes we seek change, sometimes we embrace it. Other times we fight it – holding on to the past for dear life. However we approach change it is, of course, inevitable. No matter how hard we wish for the day to remain, the night will come – followed by the next day of new beginnings.

For many, the first day of a new year is a day like any other, and to think otherwise is just a trick of the calendar. But a magical life is filled with symbols and meaning, and the passage through the doorway into a new year can be filled with the magic of transformation.

I love the African concept of “Sankofa,” which literally means “it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot.” The word “Sankofa” comes from the Sankofa bird which flies forward while looking backwards. Sankofa teaches that we must look backwards to look forwards, reclaiming and preserving the past as tools for the future. In this way we can pass through the gateways without losing any part […]
