Cycles not Houses



2015 is the year I stop talking about "Houses" and instead speak of "Cycles" because actually, each House in the Birth Chart is a Process, an Initiation, a Rite of Passage - each segment part of a greater whole. What you learn in one, goes into the next. This is how we evolve.

There are 12 Cycles.

I discuss these in my book Surfing Your Solar Cycles: a Lifetime Guide to Your Stars.

The book was written through me as an addition to all Astrological Libraries as a fundamental building block book to support all further Astrological research, study and practice.

If you were born with Venus in the 5th House, for example, it's the same as saying
Venus is in Cycle 5 - going through Cycle 5 themes and growth challenges.

We now have planets going through certain Cycles, and this gives us a richer look into what is actually going on with this placement. Planets in Houses now becomes evolving Planets moving through initiations.

If you remember that PLANETS represent DRIVES WITHIN YOU, you can understand your Chart from a new perspective (Sun - drive to be, Venus - drive to relate, Jupiter - drive to learn etc). Find out more about each Planetary Drive at the Astrology 101 page.

If you were born with the Sun in the 9th House, you can now say your ego (Sun) is moving through a Cycle 9 initiation complete with Cycle 9 people, themes, opportunities and challenges.

You represent a Sign going through a Cycle.

As a 4th House Pisces Sun, I can now say I'm a Pisces evolving through Cycle 4 this lifetime.

How about you?





Find out more about the 12 Cycles, play around with them, have fun with this. And if you can, please pick up a copy of my book. It not only supports me further in my astrological adventures (and helps me while I write my next two books!) but it also is a killer book that you will use time and time again! It is after all, a Lifetime guide...

Not All Signs Are "Good"


I won't be looking for Signs this year but I'm sure I'll see many again. 2014 was full of them! So was 2013. You'd think I was nuts if I listed off just how many and the specifics. Wow! More than ever before. Did you see any?

This year, I'll be observing it all and noticing, acknowledging, realizing and remembering that The Fact That Something Bigger Is Taking Place puts me right back in the magic, and less into what has outwardly appeared (at least with Saturn in Scorpio which was often a nightmarish hell dimension). I'll revel in the seeing of a "sign", instead of the blind allegiance to it as a perfect manifestation of my Higher Self or Destined Path.

We must be careful whose path/signs we are following now. Which leads us to Saturn in Sag as a brave call to Adventure - once more, for those already on the Path. To get Back On the Path. To demonstrate the teachings.

To make real and manifest (Saturn) the wisdom (Sagittarius).

2015 begins the era of the Walk Your Talk philosophy as people demand "Prove it!".
 |
Preachers and Teachers will abound in the years ahead but not all speak Truth from the Universal sense but the ego-voice, ever searching for ways to both empower itself and satisfy it's desires. Don't go shopping when you're hungry! So Saturn caution is called for, in any teaching or story.

In Church, via media, or even in your own living room.

We're all working on the Truth, this year. And thus, in the polarity-world-3d-game we find ourselves in, many will operate under a Lie.

For those seeking soul-peace, it seems 2015/2017 is the gift of all the hard work of perseverance in pushing on through the dark, so that a tunnel and a light may indeed be seen/created/found.  Seek and you shall find. Saturn tempts us to Quit The Seeking, closing us down so that our Belief is jeopardized and our self-fulfilling prophecies take on a darker turn. But it doesn't have to be this way. If we continue on despite of (or perhaps even, because of!) challenges/delays/frustrations/tests....the Sagittarian good fortune will be there. Saturn always holds the ultimate (and longer-lasting) payoff, remember?

How strong and sturdy (Saturn) is YOUR faith (Sagittarius)? 

We don't need anyone to believe in us anymore, and we no longer need a nod to follow our own sacred life philosophy. 2015 offers the freedom to pursue our personal truth without judgment! But Judge they most likely shall.

Just because you "see a sign" doesn't mean you should follow it, that it's a call from your Higher Self, or anything remotely worth paying attention to. But synchronicity grabs us, doesn't it? And when they pile up and repeat, how can we not feel just a little excited that indeed, 'something must be happening'?

In 2015, I won't be seeing anything as a 'sign'. I have the Signs of the Zodiac to work with and there's more than enough information there to keep me busy (plus this is ancient tried-and-true wisdom as opposed to the latest and greatest we see popping up on Page 1 of any of our google searches).
Instead, I'll bask in awe at the consciousness that makes it possible to see that something bigger is indeed taking place.
 
If you've tapped into synchronicity of late, take heart and smile.  And if you haven't, don't go looking, just slow life down, take time to just "be" and see what happens.

2015 takes a final zip around a surprising corner (Uranus square Pluto's final 7 of 7 exact hits) and we're left with the purest form of ourselves and the range and limits of our personal power, in a world fighting for new ways of being, while holding tight to that which has been built so far.

The tension now is palpable. Wounds must be healed. And they will be healed the more we face Saturn's karmic lesson of Truth with a continued purging of non-truths.

When you see a Sign, it could be a Red Flag, a Green Light or simply a line-up revealing that "something" is being worked out, on a Higher Level perhaps, reflected in the dense 3-D physical world we also inhabit. It could also be something trying to lead you astray. Seeing a Sign, in itself, is amazing but like the freeways we drive upon, life has many road-signs and we don't follow them all. And sometimes, people rearrange them to send us in the opposite direction.  Skepticism is a very Saturn-in-Sag concept, but one that also has its place.

Remain open (Sag), but remain vigilant (Saturn). 

And as always, enjoy the scenery - even the areas you'd sooner rather leave behind than get stuck in. There are many roads leading to where you want to go. All we need do is keep our Destination in mind, and allow for the many pit-stops and detours along the way.

Even this page of your story, even this view, even this chapter is important.

In 2015 just remember one thing above all else:

Don't lose your laughter!

P.S Now's a great time to order a Transit Report for the TIMING of 2015, to see what you're working with, which cycles are upcoming and how it all is likely to affect you. What is Ripe for Review in your life? What is ready to pop? Where can you expect and anticipate great changes, open doors and more joy and vibrancy? And where can you have a heads-up for possible tests, challenges and karmic cling-ons? Check out all the Reports here.

Keep Pushing Through: Virgo New Moon & Mars/Saturn in Scorpio




A New Moon in Virgo and Mars/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio?

Hmm, I smell something in the air. It's beginning to reek? You've noticed too, of course.
Something needs to be fixed and something must change for good (or for evil, but we'll get to that...).

Virgo New Moon opens a window where any problem revealed can at least be tackled.
You either sit and groan about the errors and mistakes or you make a plan and set about trying to do something about it.

Under Virgo New Moons we all renew our dedication to our health, the welling being of plants, pets and our surroundings. Which means most people reading this will feel some amount of guilt at not taking care of themselves as well as they should. But even those who have lost touch with their inner healthy-mother, have another chance. The Virgo New Moon. Thank goodness. We also see what needs to be improved, and what new projects and plans we need to initiation (New Moon) and implement (Virgo).  We first see all of this through the lens of what is not is working. That's where we:

Throw in a Mars/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio of all signs!  Together with the Virgo Moon we have a team up between Cycle 6 (Virgo) and Cycle 8 (Scorpio). If you have my book (Page 303), you'll find in the back the list of cycle combos (if you don't you can check them out free!). These are the keywords to describe the flavor of Cycle 6/Cycle 8 and thus these current times to you:

                SURGERY, 
                                                      SEXUAL HEALTH, 
          QUITTING BAD HABIT,                                        HEALTH OBSESSION

                                      HELPER/HEALER
  MINIMALIST, 
                                     
                                  CUT AND DRIED, 
                                                                                 THE BOTTOM LINE.


Doesn't sound fun but sounds "necessary". Yuk.

We can get to the bottom line or we may have to hit rock bottom to have any solid serious, sober and REAL ground (Saturn) to build on. Reality is a great awakener. When you get down to the roots, you can see what's there (Mars/Saturn). Enough Nutrition, or creepy crawlies or viruses feeding on you?

The New Moon in Virgo is the earth-builder helper who knows which seeds to plant and which weeds to pull. If,...you Trust your inner Technician, Farmer, Critic and Boss. But beware. And be aware of and wary of anger, fears and mental phantom testing you. Remember that 'evil' I told you about earlier? Some characters DO turn evil. Is this the great "pole divide" we've been hearing about since way back? A parting of the ways? In the movie of your life then, and for the next few weeks especially, simply be alert and aware to enemies posing as friends and people hiding a real ugly truth behind a truly alluring lie.

Be Smart (Virgo-style - in other words discriminating)

Fix, Change, Develop, Create, Let Go, Transform!
 At random moments. At any time. In any order.

P.S HP got me back my laptop after 3 weeks AWOL for a 3 day repair. They messed up the warranty and now tell me I am stuck without one. Nothing I can do (Mars/Saturn). Even though there was nothing wrong with it, the Hard Drive was taken (Pluto at his best) so I am in the process of again rebuilding the store, reports etc so I can send out orders. I'm behind. As you know. Bear with me, I'm doing the best I can. I do believe in evil now. There are forces that threaten to thwart our plans. Sometimes those forces can be people. Companies. (Pluto is in Capricorn, after all). If you find it hard to trust, under this Virgo/Scorpio vibe, be trustworthy. That's one magic wand guaranteed to create some type of magic. It always does. 

I finally got the Scorpio Rising message this week (as Mars meets Saturn one degree from my Ascendant). That life can send its thunderbolts (I have Uranus Rising in Scorpio so take your best shot!) but rebirth is inevitable. It is unstoppable. It is the human spirit itself. Even after those moments of curling up in its closet and just crying.

Sudden/Erratic and Speedy Emotional Breakdowns and Breakthroughs: The Aquarius Full Moon


I'm sitting under the Pisces Moon watching the clouds pass by,
and thought that, amidst the uploading programs onto the laptop
and trying to keep you all from chasing me with Impatience Pitchforks
 I'd take this moment to check in with you.
So much has happened recently. Inside and out. Are you feeling
this too? The Aquarius Full Moon surprised us all in some fashion.
Some people had toilets suddenly exploding, massive floods. Sudden tears.
Phone calls and texts from friends in need. Or words of comfort
just when we needed them.
I was so saddened by the sudden news of
Cancerian Robin William's passing.

He left us under the same Moon he was born under: Pisces.
Coincidentally, I, a Pisces was watching him with a fellow Cancerian
just two days ago.
So I felt his passing even more deeply and also the happiness that
we both got to reconnect with him before he left. I've only been watching
him and Joan Rivers (she shares my loud-mouth Sag Moon Sign) since
I had the laptop back. Robin will forever touch us as only a Cancer/Pisces
combo can.
Most will talk of his pronounced chart/life Neptunian addiction problems,
 (we love their murky waters, let's be honest)
but let us also whisper of his undeniable Cancer Care and Neptune-Pisces
 compassion and soul.
Our Sun & Moon combination alone leaves such a defining and unmistakable mark on us.
And all who come into contact with us.
We forget the basics so often.

The Full Moon in Aquarius will continue to surprise us in various ways.
But the most important revelations won't be found in the news, on TV
or through any social media outlet.
They will come through personal experiences that bring you into closer awareness of
Who You Are. Or at least, at times, What You'd Rather Not Be.
Emotions run high of course, it's still a Full Moon. 

But we just have to be willing
to be woken out of our emotional slumber if we are not to succumb
to the emotional toxicity of attaching too firmly to any structure in life: familial, friendship, career, or relationship currently in place. All is in flux. Should we be saddened or worried by this?
Not at all. We get to enjoy everything as it happens, in the Moment. If we allow ourselves.
Change happens faster, so we have to be ready to roll with it. As you're learning, right?


So, under this time of Aquarius-flavored Sudden/Erratic and Speedy Emotional Breakdowns and Breakthroughs, and under the current Pisces Moon remember that all
is transitory.

We're all purging toxins right now. Especially under the Full Moon.
The next two weeks then, enjoy the surprises when they come.
The nice ones and the annoying ones.
They are all helpful in waking up to a new level of reality-awareness,
while irritating the hell out of us.

We are electrical beings and we need shocks to the system to
fire our codes and awaken us up from within whoever s Dream
we have fallen into so that we make awaken within our Own.
I'll be back again soon. I'm still doing Readings but Reports are delayed
til everything is updated, And - I'm back to my Tarot studies again.
That's another field I've been studying for 20 years on and off.
Now I've had a chance to dive deeper so you can also order  
One Question by Tarot  for a mere $50 that I'll answer personally. 
I'll have fun seeing what the Tarot Cards
 say and interpreting what they are trying to tell you.

Always listening, always feeling, always learning and lots to be sharing,
Love you,
Your Astrologer,
Neil

Moving under Mercury Retrograde in Cancer...


Mercury is Retrograde in Cancer (the 'Home' sign) and Neptune is visiting my Home - just entering my 4th House (the House of the Home). Already the tide is dissolving the foundations. What foundations? They were already taken by the fire of May 2013! Born with a Pisces Sun and Mercury in the 4th, square Neptune you'd think my home would be swallowed up by the ocean, not burned to the ground. But the theme remains the same - intangible outer security creates the necessity for tangible inner security. And that's a tough one.

Nice in theory, rough as hell in practice.

The Universe works in mysterious ways, and Neptune/Pisces energy teaches us one thing above all - sometimes you can fight the tide (like those fish that swim upstream) or you can let it carry you.

As "fate" steps in once more, I have to relocate again. I went back and calculated it (Mercury Retrograde in Cancer is THE "Memory Lane" phase) and in my going-on-13 years in the USA, I've moved 24 times! Maybe I'll write a book on the many reasons why (the genre will be mixed - adventure/horror/comedy).

Now, as the Neptune tide turns (about to go retrograde in my 4th, ruling my 4th), a marijuana grower and her son moved in (not that I had a complaint about that) and I'm having to move out. I like to see it as another Upgrade, a sign that my wings are ready again to take another flight.

I have to move by July 1 so Weekly Scopes are on hold - but the ones up are still relevant as Mercury Retrograde lasts until then.

My natal 4th House Sun in Pisces with Mercury, squared by Neptune in Sagittarius has always been a curious alignment to be born under. The way I describe it: picture a man standing on an island of his own, formed after a giant earthquake has cracked away at the land. He's floating away but he's reaching, reaching for what looks like security and safety of the gang of people across the other side, physical land, or physical connection, of family and a sense of belonging, of safety. Continental Drift of the Emotional Kind.

Safety, Security, Roots - these concepts are very personal to me and yet foreign in many areas (I live in the emotional waters of Pisces in the watery 4th House of human emotions and our Soul). They often elude me in all areas but my work. In the uncertainty and in the unknown, in the emotional and in the soul, I find the safety, security and roots more earthy signs find just by being here, on Planet Earth. My clients allow themselves to drown with me, only to discover those little forgotten pearls and reminders from the bottom of their own inner world.

 Sometimes  - a lot of times, when you're born under the alignments I myself were - you have nothing left but to stand (or lie down) and surrender. Because the Universe can take what it wants from you, at any moment, on the way to giving you what you truly want. If you can let it go. Hard to believe, huh? But then my Neptune in Sagittarius is a spiritual call to Faith and to the Journey, after all.

There's always the other side to Neptune and Pisces energy. The part of me that wants to 'check out'. Beam up up! (If I'm taken by aliens - no doubt my real family - you'll know why). But that's the same part that enables me to 'tune in' to other realms of energy.We all carry a curse and a blessing, two sides of the same coin. The astrological hand we were dealt. I continue to do my Best, as I hope you are, in trying to Stay in your Light, Stand in your Strength, Be Proud of your Effort and Salute your Soul's Balls (whether you're male or female in this incarnation) in deciding to come here

I'll check in when I can, between finding a new place to call "home" and when there's something going on we should all know about.

Swim on!

Your Astrologer,
Neil

Please continue to order your Astrology Reports and Readings with me - all of them will be answered and sent in the order they are received. Readings will take place from July onwards, possibly August for a re-adjustment period. Karma Classes will be completed by then also so hang in there, it'll be worth the wait! But I will endeavor to email your Astrology Reports out to you as quick as I possibly can.

P.S My laptop needs to be sent in for repair at the same time as everything else is happening. So if your life looks a little 'crazy' - take heart, it's just the cosmic climate. Things will look different soon enough. And we can be ever-thankful for the fact that our lives are built on Cycles and Nothing Stays the Same. Therein lies our comfort and hope.

Did you feel the shift as MARS moved Direct this past couple days? Frustration, Anger, Irritability, Impatience, Pushiness, Pissy Moods, Physical Accidents, (Passive?) Aggressiveness....giving way to....Decisive Action, Efforts to Compromise, Relationship Boundaries and Mutual Respect. Well...Give it time. The energy is back to BRING BEAUTY, HARMONY AND PEACE to your corner of the world by DOING something about it, yet (paradoxically and perhaps quite rightly so) getting ANGRY (Mars) when things aren't FAIR (Libra)...
