February always reminds me of love. It is the month during which we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and with every leap year it is also creates the opportunity for women to ask men out on a date, or to propose marriage. In February, the promise of Spring and new life is also in the air.
The energy of Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, and planetary ruler of both Libra and Taurus, is deeply inherent in all of us. Her role in our life can be interpreted through our individual natal astrological charts. Venus rules what we value, and love. It is a feminine planet, and represents our caring, graciousness, and capacity for love and affection. It also shows what we value and the effect we have on others.
Venus has a different effect on men and women. We all hold small traces and traits of the opposite sex inside of us, and it is wise to seek balance and expression of those energies. Venus in a man’s chart is his feminine ideal. In a woman’s chart, Venus embodies her femininity. Read the rest of this entry »
In my senior year in high school I started to have a dream about me being in the hospital. The dream was so disturbing. It always woke me up out of dead sleep. I told my sister about it and she said don’t worry, it was just a dream.
As a high school student I was seriously into sports. I was running every day, doing exercises and riding my bicycle all over the place. My big goal was to go on a bike tour with other people who were also serious bike riders, going from Columbus to Portsmouth, Ohio. The trip was 125 miles one way and then you had to ride it back too. This is something I had never done before, so I had to push my body in overdrive to reach the highest level of fitness possible. Read the rest of this entry »
Determination and athletic ability are symbolized by the archetype of Mars the warrior. He is the motivating force through which we feel compelled to act – nothing can stop him. This trait is perfectly represented in the achievements of endurance swimmer Diana Nyad.
Recently the 64 year old Nyad successfully achieved her lifelong goal of swimming from Cuba to Florida. What an amazing achievement and what a fantastic example of the strength and physical fitness possible at the age of 64!
Michel Gauqelin set out many years ago to disprove the validity of astrology only to become one of its greatest proponents. His work proved that Mars was very prominent in the chart of athletes and this is certainly the case in Nyad’s natal chart. Read the rest of this entry »
My wife and I go with my in-laws, my sister in-law and my nephew to every home game where my nieces are performing as cheerleaders. We usually go to the top of the stadium to the far left, as far as we can go for the best possible view.
Last Friday night at the football something happened to me that I never ever thought would happen to me. An angel appeared to me and talked to me. She looked like a human in the flesh.
I often play an ‘astronaut’ game with my nephew at the football game, to try and keep his attention, while I watch the game the same time. Read the rest of this entry »
Can the dearly departed hear our music? Can we communicate with the other side through music? I am sure this is possible, as I have personally experienced evidence of it. Music can indeed influence the energy of a spirit or ghost.
When I was a little boy, my mother would always play the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers for us on Sundays, because we were still too young to go to church. Before she passed away she asked me if I would go her grave site on her birthday and play that song. How could I say no? I have been doing it every year since.
In those days my dad would go to church alone, while mom stayed home with us. But he was not as much into the Christian music as my mother was. He was putting in many long hours as a fire fighter for the city of Columbus, Ohio, and he had hard time keeping his eyes open during services. The only reason he went to church was to make my mother happy. Read the rest of this entry »
