We all have our innate strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully, we are all leveraging our greatest innate talents, and addressing our innate weaknesses. But what about the concept of the self-fulfilling prophecy?
Quite simply, this is the idea that the energetic interaction between beliefs, thoughts, and the higher self, can cause something unwanted to manifest. By constantly resonating a pattern, can we actually cause it to come into existence. Herein lies a great opportunity, or potential curse.
Astrology clients sometimes ask me about free will. They ask whether free will even exists, since the planets influence everything in our lives and their movements are completely pre-programmed and predictable. Well, in my opinion, based upon my studies, research, work and personal experiences, you absolutely cannot change the energies that will unfold and predictably express themselves at certain times throughout your life path.

Our wise ancestors worshipped the stars in the heavens above and considered them to be a direct reflection of the earth below. As you may know, the movement of the planets in our solar system absolutely mirrors everything that is occurring on Earth at any point in time.
Have you heard of the deities known as Nut and Geb? In Egyptian mythology Nut and Geb are twins. Nut is the sky goddess and Geb is the Earth god. In the imagery found in ancient art, Nut is typically shown to be arching over, or mirroring Geb, who lies below. As above, so below…
The Egyptians were exceptionally precise astronomers. The three pyramids at Giza mirror perfectly the three stars in Orion’s belt above. They are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. These three stars form the most striking and isolated line in the heavens. Read the rest of this entry »
There is an on-going debate, varying opinions and much confusion about the Age of Aquarius and when it actually began. Let’s clear that up.
First of all, we need to understand the role of the Spring Equinox, which is also known as the Vernal Equinox. This is the moment each year when the Sun enters the first sign of the Zodiac as it traverses the Celestial Equator, Northbound, bringing longer days to the Northern Hemisphere. Quite simply, the Sun commences its annual pilgrimage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, starting on March 20th every year, as the plane of the Earth’s Equator passes through the center of the Sun.

Take a look at the hourglass in this picture. Can you see that the sand pours from the upper chamber to the lower chamber? It does this in just the same way that you descended to the earth plane from the astral plane above.
You incarnated into this material plane of existence as part of your journey. This lifetime of yours is but one chapter in a very long and fascinating story. It is the book of you, your unique make up, and your unique opportunity.
Always remind yourself that, just as the sand pours from the upper chamber of the hourglass into the lower chamber below, your earthly manifestations are created from above.
Yes, yes, you have a physical body in this lifetime. You have to because everything existing on the material plane must travel in a material chariot. And yes, yes, you have this wonderful human brain at your disposal, along with all of your other earthly resources. However, be very clear with yourself that your mind is not you. Your mind is your servant. Read the rest of this entry »
How well do you know yourself? Probably, not very well. You are an accumulation of everything that you have ever owned, done, experienced, and been. And I am not just talking about this lifetime; this life is merely another little stepping stone on a very long spiritual pathway.
It’s difficult to master something when you can’t see what you are dealing with, right? But how do you see yourself? The mirror is only a reflection of the physical – it doesn’t reflect anything metaphysical. So, what do you do?
And about that stepping stone: whatever, however, wherever it is – it is your responsibility. Oh my Goddess, you say! How can this be my creation? Because you are the creator, silly. Whatever you have created and wherever you are standing right now, is an absolute reflection of what you are at this time. Read the rest of this entry »
The soul moves through seven planetary realms before arriving on the earth plane. This is why Christian baptism traditionally involves seven immersions of purification. They correspond to the seven planetary realms.
Initiates of the ancient mysteries were also immersed seven times. They were overseen by four priests. Baptisms nowadays generally involve three handfuls of water symbolizing the trinity, but this practice is rooted in the original seven immersions.
In the Mysteries of Eleusis, revered by the Greeks and Romans, the Torchbearer holds the Sun. The Altar Superintendent holds the Moon. The last priest holds the Caduceus (Mercury), which is a winged staff with two snakes wrapped around it. The Caduceus was an ancient astrological symbol associated with the Greek god Hermes, the messenger for the gods. Read the rest of this entry »
The truth is that our ancestors created myths to encode important information for our benefit. Speaking the truth in those days resulted in death. An alternative was necessary. And so mythology conveys important messages to us from the past – a message of truth otherwise suppressed.
Today the truth is still suppressed in so many ways. There is the argument that our education systems and religious institutions do not teach us the truth. The most sickening recent examples of blatant suppression is that of radical religious extremism which has cost countless people their lives. I feel sad about how little we have done to stop these atrocities.
Unfortunately, you have to destroy a cancer. You cannot just ignore it like a minor case of the flu. You cannot just hope that it will go away. Recent terrorist attacks in the West patently illustrate that radicalism does indeed spread like a cancer. Radicalism is a dark force, just as cancer is a dark manifestation. It has to be eliminated.

I will not weep; I will not lament,
As, for us all, you are heaven sent.
The physical body – naught but a shell;
Which on departure, all repel.
A concoction of things that to earth belong;
Since a long time before you sang your song.
A collection of melodies we each shall sing;
An eternity of lessons to relish and bring.
We give you our heart; we give you our soul.
For to one thing alone, we return to be whole.
I love you; I love myself.
Anything less is absence of wealth.
The material world is just one plane;
A monopoly box revered in vain.
