Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers!

Thanksgiving astrologyThanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday – perhaps due to the combination of the Sun in Cancer with the Sagittarius ascendant in the US chart.  The Cancerian Sun is focused on food and the nurturing of the People, and because the US Sun falls in the Seventh House of partnerships there is a sense of sharing that nurturing with others with whom we are allied.  The Sag ascendant is bountiful and optimistic that in sharing a big (Sagittarian) feast (Cancer) it will open the door to more abundance in years to come.

One of my readers reminds me that the US is to set aside a day for Thanksgiving but it is one of only four nations to do so.   The power of gratitude is widely recognized as both a balm for healing and a tool for expanding the abundance in our lives.

Today we have an interesting astrological correlation for the Thanksgiving holiday in that the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Cancer, repeating but in reverse the solilunar aspects in the US chart.

We all know that the fairy tale of the original Thanksgiving in which the settlers and the native American people share a meal together loses its meaning when we think of the horrors that followed for several hundred years, but the essence of the holiday goes, I think, beyond a celebration of that myth of turkey and potatoes.  On this day there is a focus throughout the nation on the things that we are thankful for, and that is something that we all benefit from.

So on this day I invite all of my readers, no matter what country you hail […]

Climbing mountains: Musings on manifestation

One of my quarterly clients was very excited to begin the new year back in January. The astrological forecast looked great, with lots of positive transits of Jupiter and Uranus, and very little difficulty. Over the year she has reported a personal expansion, with a greater ability to define and develop herself in her relationships and in the rest of her life. Still, she has been disappointed in the business side of things this year. Although we worked on Visioncrafting in the January session to manifest certain things this year, she had not religiously followed the program, and she was disappointed that her financial picture was down from the previous year.

Most of us are familiar with the hard work that comes from challenging planetary cycles that force us to let go of aspects of our life that aren’t working, or cause us emotional and sometimes physical pain. We look forward to times of harmonious transits as being periods in which we can just relax and good things will come to us. This is certainly true, because harmonious transits (especially of Jupiter and Uranus, the two planets that seek liberation and expansion) will open doors for us. But unless we are clear in our intention, our higher self will generally guide us to an inner liberation rather than automatically improve the financials of our business.

In the case of my client, she works in an industry that has been hard hit this year by the financial downturn but she and I expected that the positive transits would carry her through with more ease and grace than she has experienced this year. But I am convinced that Jupiter can take us only so far, and that while it will […]

I will love the sun
for it warms my bones
Yet I will love the rain
for it cleanses my spirit
I will love the light
for it shows me the way
Yet I will love the darkness
for it shows me the stars

Jayson Blair reinvents himself: An inspiring tale of the Wounded Healer

Jayson Blair, the New York Times journalist who was forced to resign in 2003 when it was discovered that he had plagiarized and simply made up some of his stories, is back in the news having reinvented himself as a life coach.  Blair now has a position with Ashburn Psychological Services in Virginia as a certified coach, something that has caused more than a few raised eyebrows in the media.

The story of Jayson Blair embodies the soul of the Chironic journey that we call the “Wounded Healer.”  This archetype is well-known in the psychological field and originated in the work of Carl Jung who is quoted as saying “Only the wounded physician heals.”  It is the experience of being wounded that provides the compassion required to assist others in their own healing journey.

Blair, an African-American, was blessed with a trail of success beginning with his stint as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper in college and continuing through his meteoric rise at the New York Times.  But his entire career he was dogged by questions and accusations of fabrication and reporting errors that were largely ignored until April 2003, when he was fired from the Times.  Blair’s rise through the Times was largely attributed to the desire for a more diverse workplace and the Blair story led to a lively national debate on the merits of affirmative action although Blair’s career paralleled that of Stephen Glass, a white reporter with the New Republic whose demise was chronicled in the film “Shattered Glass.”

According to Jayson Blair’s birthchart (March 23, 1976, time unknown, Columbia Maryland), he has the Sun in Aries and it form a challenging square to Mars, the ruler of Aries.  Mars and Aries are both fiery influences that […]
