Mars returns to its position in an individual’s natal chart approximately every two years. In Astrology this event is known as a Mars Return. It is analogous to a Solar Return, which happens when the transiting Sun returns to the position of the individual’s natal Sun, otherwise known as our birthday! Obviously, we do not celebrate our Mars Returns in the same way as our Solar Returns, although Mars does bring with it some significant themes when it crops up again in our chart.
Mars is the planet traditionally associated with the male gender, and male roles. It represents competition, sports, and inner drive and motivation. It is also associated with the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, which provides individuals with a sense of reward for their efforts. Mars is further associated with the hormone testosterone and governs raw sexual desires and passion. Read the rest of this entry »
Mystics have studied Astrology for thousands of years and it is still very popular to this day, because it can be used to reveal many things in your life. The natal chart is your Astrological birth chart, which is used to reveal things about the energetic influences that may have an impact on your entire life.
The natal chart represents the exact order of the planets and stars at the time of your birth. The energy surrounding your birth has an impact on personality, as well as predicting future events in your life. It can be a helpful tool to use in order to navigate through life more easily, and have a better understanding of how to live your life to the fullest. Read the rest of this entry »
Most people know their Astrological sign, or Sun sign. Most also know their birth order in the family: oldest, middle child, or youngest. And a few people may even know their Numerological life number, which is the sum of the digits in one’s birth date and determines the major themes of an individual’s life. But what many people don’t know is that these influences must be taken into account as a whole!
Each of these aspects tell a unique story, since no two individuals are alike. We’ll use the example of Amy, a Gemini Sun sign born on June 15, 1978, to demonstrate this concept of mixed birth patterns. Gemini, the Twins, are usually outgoing types who excel at communication and strive to make many friends. The Sun sign, the foremost influence in one’s chart, forms the basis of our personality. What really gets interesting is what lies beyond the basic, ‘garden-variety’ Astrological readings found on a typical horoscopes website or newspaper column. Read the rest of this entry »
A decade ago, I congratulated a client on her pregnancy. She was a soon-to-be single mom. Lucy was battling her own demons, and insecurity after fighting the battle with alcohol and drugs, and had fallen head over heels for Justin during a recent stint in rehab. Naturally, she was devastated when the man she loved did not show the slightest interest in ever being a part of their son’s life.
Lucy was a beautiful, and exceptionally talented young woman, but had no idea how special she was. She was a slip of a thing and seemed so vulnerable. She only had a couple of friends, since so many others, as well as family, had given her the cold shoulder because of her substance abuse. Like myself, she’d had many slips by falling off the wagon, but I believe that to this day, she is winning the battle. Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
Many spiritual seekers are looking for some sort of evidence of past lives, or an afterlife. Many of us yearn for a way to recover from the spiritual amnesia that we are apparently born with. I believe we are born with clues into our past lives. These clues are so much a part of our daily lives, we simply overlook them.
Have you ever wondered where birthmarks come from? Or, if there is any link between birth defects and reincarnation? I’m not referring to the marks that are hereditary. I’m referring to those brown or red spots, also known as ‘strawberries’ or ‘angel kisses.’ These marks typically appear at birth. Some are located between the eyes, or on the neck, stomach or lower back, essentially anywhere. Read the rest of this entry »
Are you interested in using crystals and gemstones in your magical workings? There are hundreds of stones to choose from, but which ones you choose will ultimately depend on your intent. Always select crystals and gemstones for use based upon their attributes, and you won’t go wrong.
I love to use amethyst. It is my birthstone and is also the 6th anniversary stone. Amethyst is a form of quartz crystal, and appears in a wide range of purple and violet colors. My favorite color is the deep purple variety.
Amethyst is associated with the element of water, and it is also connected to the water signs of Pisces and Aquarius. One can use amethyst in healing rituals related to treating depression or anxiety, mood disorders, and to relieve stress. Read the rest of this entry »
When I do psychic readings by phone, clients sometimes ask if they should give me their birth date. But I don’t need to know their birthday to know anything about them, because I am able to uncover information using my psychic abilities.
Firstly, I often ‘feel energy’ moments before my client even calls. I begin to sense how they may be feeling seconds before the phone rings. I am clairsentient (empathic) and I feel negative or positive energy around people. I have an ability to sense if the person has toxic people around them, who are energetically draining them. I can feel what is hindering them. I would then share ways how they can get rid of any dis-ease, or toxic and energetically draining energy from their lives. Read the rest of this entry »
