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.

One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

Sun was a young maiden who lived in the East, with brother, Moon who lived in the West. Sun’s brother Moon stayed far away from her, at the other end of the night.
The maiden Sun also had a lover who used to come every month in the dark of the moon, to court her. He would come at twilight, and leave by dawn.
She talked with her admirer, but he never allowed her to see his face in the dark. He also would not share his name with her. As time passed she was wondering all the time who he really could be.
Finally, Sun came up with a plan to find out who her secret lover was. The next time he came to her, while they were talking in the dark of the night, Sun covered her hands with ashes from the fireplace and rubbed them on his face claiming his face was cold. Read the rest of this entry »
The most recent Solstice took place on June 20th, marked with a rare Full Moon in Sagittarius. This signifies the perfect time for us to become ‘archers’ and use focus, courage, and persistence in manifesting our biggest dreams and visions for the second half of 2016.
Since March this year, we have all been struck with spells of confusion, exhaustion and scattered energy. You can thank the intense solar flares, two eclipses, and the ongoing retrograde activity in Mercury, Mars, and now Neptune, for some of your most frustrating moments. This planetary non-movement has been forcing us to slow down, prioritize and reassess our lives, to rid it of anything that isn’t helping us grow. Look at it as a blessing in disguise!
Once Mars goes direct today, on June 30th, it will release a fire of emotions and aggressive energy which are going to increase as we move closer to November. With two Full Moons in Sagittarius, back to back, we are being given the opportunity to change our world by removing the old, outdated ways of existing and replacing it with fresh, forward thinking.

Crystals and gemstones, as well as metals, are mostly worn as ornaments – for beauty, fashion and status. Some wear them for the purpose of mystery, symbolism, or psychism. But on a deeper level, they are spiritual allies which, along with our intent, and focus, help to protect and heal our body, mind and spirit.
Diamond engagement rings is a great example. It is said that one must never buy a diamond for oneself. Diamonds are a protective stone, bringing luck, happiness, wealth, and protection against adversity. Buying a diamond for the self, has a negative effect on the wearer. Precious and semi-precious stones and crystals should be chosen with care.
One popular way to become familiar with working with them is to wear your birthstone. Birthstones correspond metaphysically with a person’s astrological sign, the birth month, the planet that rules the zodiac sign, and the angels and spirits that correspond with that planet. It is no wonder then that wearing a birthstone enhances the life of the wearer, causing the spirit to resonate at a higher level. This helps a person to achieve the highest attributes inherent in the horoscope, and protects against adversity. Read the rest of this entry »
