Aquarius New Moon



How do you know when you are on the right path to make your dreams come true?  Well, one of my favorite tools for prediction is astrology and we have a New Moon in Aquarius, Sunday the 25th of January at 10:55 PM PST.  Your dreams, wishes, friendships, charitable interests and organizations will be front and center for the 28 day run of this lunar cycle.  Remember, New Moons are for starting new projects and all Aquarian themes (see above) are highlighted for extra power and success.

We will have to contend with the retrograde motion of Mercury (till 1 February 2009) and Saturn (till 16 May 2009).  Communications, computer problems, and issues around transportation will continue to cause problems off and on till the first.  Be prepared for delays by padding due dates on your important projects; this way, you’ll be covered (hopefully) in the event of a car, computer or communications issue until the retrograde ends.   I would even consider stalling new projects until as late as the 21st of February when Mercury finally clears its retrograde shadow and you get an all clear from the celestial Gods.  If you cannot wait that long, take extra precautions with your new endeavors (read the fine print!) to insure that you won’t wind up on the short end of the stick.

Aquarius is symbolized by the water bearer and is ruled by the planet Uranus, planet of explosive change.  Since this New Moon is also a solar eclipse, Aquarians born early in the sign, plus early Leos, Taurus’ and Scorpios, may all find that they experience some earth shaking changes during the next six months or so.

Aquarius (and Uranus) bring sudden change, they rule technology and ironically old fashioned, traditional values (think Ronald Reagan).  Aquarius also rules astrology, and if you’ve been thinking of learning more about this ancient science check out and check out a book called The Inner Sky.  Mr. Forrest is a knowledgeable teacher and you will be in excellent hands as you learn the basics of astrology—albeit with a decidedly unique twist.  

As I’ve indicated in previous blogs, I highly recommend developing the ability to intuit trends for yourself, as these are interesting times we live in…I think you’ll find astrology is a phenomenal tool to add to your life tool kit…



P.S. Happy Birthday to my Aquarian friends!

Do you know where your life is?

This is a question emailed me this morning from an email blast Oprah sends out each weekday, and it’s an excellent question because (drum roll please)...I quit my job yesterday. It was a drama filled moment, but had been a long time in the making. And here’s the point, if you know where your life is (and trust me, you do) you know if you’re headed toward a drama filled moment (read: crisis).

If the vision of your life experience that exists in your head is substantially different than the one you live day to day; you my friend are coasting toward a crisis. Don’t panic, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The loss of a job, relationship or living situation isn’t necessarily terrible; it’s a course correction, especially if you’ve been planning and setting goals to have new life experiences.

In retrospect I realize I needed to release the job a looooong time ago, but couldn’t get myself to do it. How would I explain walking away from what appeared to be my livelihood? I couldn’t…or could I? After all, I knew I wanted to work from home doing this type of work full time. I could have politely declined to participate in a work situation that was sucking the very marrow from my bones. And maybe next time I will remember that I am empowered enough to deliberately choose when and where I segue into a new life experience, with grace, ease and joy.

Having said that, I hope you are making your way through the mercury retrograde with more grace and ease than I have this week. And in honor of your continued success, I am rolling out a referral program, because this work I do is largely expanded through word of mouth and I want to expand my practice with grace, ease…yeah, you get the direction this is headed in, right?

The program works like this: when you register with me and then refer one friend who actually books and has a reading with me, you get a 15 minute reading with me for free. When you refer three people to me who all book and have a reading with me, you get a 30 minute reading. And when you refer five people to me who all book and have a reading with me, you then get an hour reading with me for free. After your free one hour reading the process begins again with a new referral and reading partner and a new 15 minute reading, with me, for free, etc, etc. And your friends can also benefit from this program by giving their own referrals—cool beans.

So, email me if you’d like to be on my list for referrals this year. And I’d like to thank you, my clients and readers for helping me make my dreams come true this year…here’s to your success in 2009!

The first work week of the year and we're experiencing a bit of Celestial turbulence. Saturn, the planet of restriction and delay began retrograde motion in Virgo on New Years Eve and Sunday mercury begins retrograde motion in Aquarius. To add to the challenges for the people of planet earth, there is a Full Moon in Cancer on Saturday at 8:27 PM PST. Let's just say things are probably going to feel a bit bumpy for awhile. Saturn will not return to direct motion until May 16th and mercury won't return to direct motion till the first of February--but take your time starting new projects. I like to give mercury time to clear its shadow period after a retrograde, and the shadow ends about the 20th of February.

Yeah, not the best news, but what does it mean to you? Be prepared to begin working on your goals for the New Year, but don't expect quick results. This is a time to really take a look at what is working in your life as well as what is not...and then set your plans carefully and in detail. Please don't use the retrogrades as an excuse to put off the work you need to do in order for 2009 to be a great year, because there will be some good news (especially for Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarian folks; stay tuned).

Hopefully you've already got your goals list put together. If not, I really like The Millionaire Course by Marc Allen; it's great for defining the vision of who/what you want to be when you grow up. And I like The Success Principles, by Jack Canfield for giving you great ideas to stay on track the entire year. Check out for forms that you can download and fill out each quarter so that you know what you're doing step by step, all year long, to be successful. I love the fact that he talks about having an accountability partner, someone you report in with on a regular basis; did you exercise, did you write a few pages each day for that book you want to publish next year--that kind of thing. Let's face it, there isn't going to be a 700 billion dollar bailout for the man/woman on the street. You better have a plan...

So, maybe it might be a good time to check in with your friendly, neighborhood psychic--yes that's me. My vocation is to help people achieve their dreams, to help you live a fulfilled life. Now if you're happy as a clam, that's great, but if not, I'd like to be your accountability partner. You have two eyes, why? For depth perception, of course and you can get better 'vision' into what you need to do in 2009 with a bit of metaphysical insight. Email me to set up your appointment.

Now, the good news is that saturn will take a brief tour of Libra at the end of 2009. It will retrograde back into Virgo, for a bit, in 2010, but all of you who have been suffering through insufferable work situations may feel a bit of relief toward the end of October. The restrictions and delays move to Libra and the issue of partnership--but we'll worry about that later.
So it's time to really pay attention to what you want and set your game plan. Be patient and make course corrections because the first six months of the year may not have a really great flow, but you can still come out of the deal the wiser if you are patient and do the work.

Wishing you great joy and fulfillment in 2009!

Fresh Starts

New Beginnings,

Well, it took longer to reignite this situation than I thought, but here we go!

Greetings and welcome to 2009, an opportunity to start fresh on the road to creating the life of your dreams. I imagine a lot of you are taking a look at the year ahead with hopefullness; dreams of greater joy, ease, prosperity and happiness abound, What will you be doing to help expand your current life experiences so that by the end of 2009, your life experience includes all the aforementioned goodies?

If you've been reading my blog (see for awhile, then you understand that the metaphysical aspect of change begins with one's thoughts and beliefs. You don't loose weight because you diet per se, but because there has been a shift in what you see and believe to be the truth of you--hence the weight loss. You love yourself where you stand, and that attracts to you a book, a yoga studio, a teacher, etc. and from there you're off and running. Continued positive thought about you entices new recipes, affirmations, visualizations, new friends and other helpful items that allow you to continue the upward spiral of activities to the new physical you. Get the picture?

And it's the same for all other manifestations. If you are frustrated, fearful, or practice thoughts that don't embrace the beauty that is you, you're likely to find your dreams for a 'new year, new you' somewhat stymied. You might like to try journaling as a way of sneaking a peek at your innermost thoughts to assess what your beliefs are about your health, money, weight, career, etc.

If your changes are needed because of a crisis, that's a little bit different...

You might have heard that John Travolta and his wife are coping with the sudden death of their 16 year old son; that's crisis, and as humans we can be guaranteed at some point in time we will have some sudden challenge appear on our path that must be faced down and overcome. The loss of a job, the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship are events that summon the best in us if we are to regain our bearings and get on with life. Mr. Tavolta's belief in scientology is scoffed at by many, but I have no doubt it's what he and his family will lean on to move forward, however shakily into the future. Religion, spirituality and even scientific understanding are the go to tools in time of both peace and trouble.

The tool I work with most, whether you call it intuition, spiritual insight, or psychic ability, is one I think highly worth developing. My clients come to me for clairty, validation and metaphysical understanding when they are confused or life has become greatly challenging. You might want to consider adding the development of your own intuitive abilities to your list of dreams and goals for 2009, it certainly can't hurt. One of my favorite books for developing intuitive faculties is by Laura Day and is called Practical Intuition. You won't need cards or anything like that, just some time to devote to your own well being.

I should add that Ms. Day also has a book for those of you dealing with crisis; Welcome to Your Crisis is a wonderful book to work with as you baby step your way out of difficulty back into a life of happiness. And if you're thinking that there has to be a death in the family before you need such a book, please reconsider. If you know you're living on the edge of a volcano metaphorically speaking due to a shakey relationship, shakey finances, or not attending to nagging health issues--then this is the book for you as well. I love Ms. Day's work, she's gentle, but knowlegeable and effective. Don't pass up the opportunity to make things right before they go way wrong...

In closing, I send my condolences to Mr. Travolta and family. And to you, I wish great peace and expanded well being as you embark on the journey of a new year.
