Advice

From the advice column: I’m surrounded by malicious people

astrological adviceQ: I am really struggling against all of the odds. Lots of malicious gossips, malicious people in general that I have to live among, give treatment to and build my business, which is virtually impossible and I’m running out of money. If you can see what steps may be best for me to make regarding business or earnings that would be a great help.

A: You are what we call a “Double Capricorn” – your Sun is in Capricorn and you have Capricorn rising, so the sign of Capricorn is very strong in your chart.  The destiny of Capricorn is to master the material world, so it’s no wonder you have a craving to build your business and in fact building a business or making some kind of mark in the world is what you are meant to do.

Like all of us, you have challenges you must face in order to accomplish your goals.  While your Mars (drive and desire) is in Aries, where it is most powerful and most easily able to manifest your desires, it is opposite your very polite and sensitive Libra Moon.  Anger and confrontation likely frightens you, whether it’s coming from inside you or from someone else.  And Mars is also opposite Pluto, the planet of power and personal transformation.  Often people with Mars/Pluto dynamics in their chart experience betrayals and power conflicts in their life until they are able to stand up for what they need in their own life and develop the strength to assert themselves with confidence.  This has likely been particularly difficult over the past couple of years because Pluto in the sky has been transiting your Sun – the very essence of who you are – encouraging your […]

Astrological advice: When will Jupiter bring me my ideal relationship?

astrological adviceEach week I answer a reader question using their astrological chart.  Because this service is designed to help as many people as possible, preference is given to questions which will have benefit and interest others.  If you have a burning question you think others will share, please email me and it will be considered! 

Q:
Jupiter has been transiting my seventh house since October 2017, I was expecting for a relationship to appear in my life. I was sure that just like Meghan Markle fell into Harry’s life, someone would fall into mine and vice versa. So I have been going to parties, pubs, weddings, meetings… any invitation I am saying yes (just like Jim Carrey in Yes Man movie), but nothing -besides drunk men- falls on my lap.

Jupiter is about to move to my 8th house and I am worried -frightened, indeed- that I will end up missing that experience in this life. I really want to marry and have a family of my own… but it looks like  no matter what I do, no matter where I go… I end up the same. I am up to the point where I am tired and just want to curl in my bed… I hate loud places, I hate going to parties where I am stalked by married men, I hate going to the beach to be asked by kids half my age, but I am scared that if I don’t, I will be missing this opportunity.

What are your thoughts on this? what piece of advice/light could you give me on this? Are my expectations on Jupiter wrong or too high?

A:

When I was single for about nine years after my divorce I too watched the passages of […]

From the advice column: Why have the past few years been so hard?

astrological adviceQ:  

For the past 5 years, my life has had SO many problems – life and health.  Almost as if the Universe keeps saying – “But wait – am throwing THIS in your lifepath – let’s see how you handle this one.”

Financial (bankruptcy in 2013), relationships strains, and a lot of health issues/problems – 5 surgeries in different parts of my body in 5 years and just got thrown another two more that I will have to deal with in the very near future – (the plethora of medical expenses are greatly affecting our finances)  

I am a good person – caring, compassionate, helpful and kind; I take care of myself – exercise, eat right and organic, no drinking, drugs and a glass or two of red wine a week –

What is it in my chart that is causing all of this and when will this start easing up?  Or, am I instead of looking at my ‘golden years’ going be be looking at my ‘lead years’?


A:

Although you say that  things have been particularly difficult in the past five years, I suspect that your life has not been easy in general.  Your chart shows an optimistic ascendant and Moon, both in Sagittarius, but difficult Saturn is putting pressure on your Sun, and Pluto (intense transformation) is a part of that dynamic as well.   Saturn and Pluto are the astrological heavyweights, so when they both conflict with the Sun it generally suggests a life where things are difficult and intense, but also very transformative.

Saturn is the apex of a “Yod” – a “finger of fate” aspect in your chart, which echoes the importance of Saturn in the chart.  Saturn is a difficult ally – he puts obstacles […]

Astrological advice column: Where and when to relocate

astrological adviceIf you have a burning question and need astrological advice here’s where to send it.  Preference will be given for questions that will likely help others as well. 


Q:
We are in the process of selling our home and getting ready to downsize now that the children have scattered all over the world.

My questions to you are the following;

1. How can we best find a location for our next abode that will map to our astrological charts? We will not have unlimited funds and are looking for a place where our retirement income will go the farthest. We currently have children all over the world. We are resident in Switzerland, but find it too expensive with a limited retirement income. We would like to be within a short travel distance from our children, so the Med area and even Eastern Europe are not impossible with airfare today. We also have many close friends in England and siblings in the US.

2. How can we choose the best time to relocate? When we sell, we have built 6 months into the sales contract, so we will have sufficient time to both clear out and pack up a large building while choosing our next location.


A:

astrocartography

In today’s world in which people can live anywhere, finding just the right place to settle can be a daunting task. The practice of astrology can be helpful in just about every area of life and every human problem, which is why I’ve revived the advice column – to demonstrate its usefulness and effectiveness.

Still, when searching for the best place to make your home, I always encourage my clients not to rely on astrological factors (such as Astrocartography […]

From the advice column: Integrating opposites

Q: I am Capricorn sun with Cancer moon. This is polarity, and yes my life has been full of utter polarity. Homeless one minute and £30,000 in the bank the next. I have looked on the net for advice to people who hold the opposites in their charts, but never found much that was helpful Hold it all together is what you would say. It has made me very strong. The two solstices are very powerful times for me.

A: Most people do have opposites in their chart, so we all must learn at some point or another to integrate the poiarities within ourselves. The important thing to remember about the astrological opposites is that each has what the other lacks. In the case of Cancer and Capricorn, Cancer is concerned with the home and the inner life, Capricorn is concerned with the outer world and career or public life outside the home.

Your Moon is actually in Virgo, but you have Cancer on the ascendant. The issue of the opposition is made more powerful by the fact that your Capricorn Sun sits right on the descendant of the chart, the point of relationships, and opposes your ascendant, the point of personal identity. Plus, Jupiter and Uranus are extremely tightly conjunct in Cancer and sitting right on the ascendant. So the Cancer influence is equally powerful to your Capricorn Sun. The Jupiter and Uranus combination, especially on the ascendant, makes you a unique (Uranus) and positive (Jupiter) person with your own way of doing things, something that can conflict with the Capricorn drive for achievement and the Cancer drive for tribal affiliation, or more simply, the pull between our work life and our family life.

In addition, Chiron is conjunct your Sun and opposes the Jupiter/Uranus combination which reveals […]
