Your Karma Class - 2007- 2009

Your Karma Class of 2007 - 2009

Saturn, planet of Work, Discipline and “career Karma” just moved into Virgo – the sign of getting it (and keeping it) together. That's right - you gotta tighten your belt and buckle up for the next two years in ONE area in particular....there's nowhere to hide, so you best read on...

Saturn the Sanitary strides into your House of Health, Hygiene & Work to whip you into shape or risk getting bent out of it. Yoga anyone? Natural Remedies? A better job? Revamp your schedule. Clean up your mess. Ditch bad habits. Failing this test prolongs your celestial colonic…


Saturn the Serious strides into your House of Love, Romance, Risks & Playtime. Schedule in some fun time and laugh for god’s sake. If it’s not fun why do it? Love is a bitch this year if you play coy, shy. Play well but don’t play games. Give, even if no one says thanks. Those who risk nothing lose everything. Who cares what the audience thinks – this is your spotlight!

Saturn the Stoic strides into your House of Home & Family. Oh boy – just exactly where is home? Here? There? You’ll have to move or rearrange furniture to give yourself the ideal nest. A new neediness overcomes you, as karma forces you to reveal your more tender side. Seek privacy but avoid walls. Are family roots in need of weeding? If in doubt, hug to disarm all scary looking situations.

Saturn the Strict strides into your House of Communication to test you on How you say it, What you say, and Who you say it to. Siblings could annoy the hell out you (along with neighbors) but it’s all a test of your mouth and mind. Stop depressing mental loops. Spit it out. If not, karma will send a cat to locate your tongue.

Saturn the Schoolmaster has left your sign. What have you learned? Don’t a thank you. Keep shining when the sun goes in. Hard work does pay off. Congrats! Your next challenge is to cash in on your newfound courage, dedication, & leadership skills. Clean up your checking account. Balance your books. Can royalty live light yet still luxuriously?

Saturn the Sedate strides into your sign giving you two years to get yourself together. Maybe you won’t come out a model of maturity, hard work, courage and pristine health - but maybe you will. Begin now. Destroy worry. Love your job or move on. Eat well. Help people. Stop complaining. You’re the zodiac’s Improver and you’re now assigned to…yourself.

Saturn the Sober strides into your House of the Unconscious, Past Lives, Karma & Escapism. Addictions no longer work. Your dreams scream. Your yesterday invades today and needs resolution. Forget? Sounds nice but first you must face your darkest hour. Can you let go? We’ll see. If it goes or is gone - don’t hold on! Seek soul space and nurture your secret self.

Saturn the Sincere strides into your House of your Future, Friendships, Goals and Groups to clean up your social shenanigans. Tell Dirty friends to clean up their act before dirtying your doorstep. Set your social sights higher by being a rebel with a cause to aid those who’ll help (not hinder) your future freedom.

Saturn the Steady strides into your House of Career, Achievement, Status and Authority. Yes you’ll need to prove yourself but not become a control freak. Yes, you can take the wheel but no, you can’t run red lights. You’re in the hot seat – but you want to drive, so stop kicking back, hiding in the back or looking back.


Saturn the Staid strides into your House of Travel, Adventure, Expansion & Knowledge. How much do you know? Suffering from culture-clash? Maybe it’s time for a trip to new lands, for new information or people. Open your mind. Close your mouth. To pop prejudice, Karma bumps you into a bubble of foreign origin.

Saturn the Somber strides into your House of Death, Rebirth, Power & Transformation. For starters, sex is serious (you want more or less). You have to learn to trust (through deceit?). You must cut your cards or your phone line to escape creditor calls. Deep down it’s about death. Die. Be reborn. Crash and Burn. Get back up. Repeat.

Saturn the Stern strides into your House of Partnership, Fair-Play, Cooperation and Compromise. A major make-or-break could lie ahead if you clean up your contracts - 50-50 still means you’re only giving (and getting) half. Give tops or you’ll bottom out. In or out?

Emotional Mind-Fields: Gemini Full Moon

No, you're not schizo. You're either talking a heck of a lot about what ails you, or keeping totally schtum. You COULD talk about it. Or then again you could just continue to bounce it around in your skull. It's your choice.

Gemini, as the sign of the twins highlights (under the Full Moon) areas of your life where you're in TWO MINDS about something, or someone.

Here's the full analysis of the Gemini Full Moon for the low-down on what's going on for the next month under this lunar phase.

I'll say in closing that this particular Full Moon is challenged by Saturn, so there's a somber feel to our thoughts. We're more likely crushed into conversation, squeezed to share our thoughts or generally a little on the depressed or downward spiral (old mental loops and draining repetitive thought patterns).

If you catch yourself being down AGAIN about something, great. Here's your chace to purge your life of an old mental daemon that robs you of cerebral clarity and mental bliss. Thoughts are things, so don't let yourself get bogged down with so much attention to the drudgery of life, let them fly by leaving just an ounce of space for the possibility that a new way will be found through the falling leaves of a dying season in your life.

Everything is cyclic, remember. And what you choose to think about is ultimately another aspect of free-will operating in your life. No one can make you think anything (unless you let them).

Where's your head?

Keep talking,

My Thanksgiving "Thanks" for YOU...

who read these words, no matter where you live, no matter what you have, or don't have, or what you've done, or not done.

Thank you all for sharing this journey with me, for incarnating into delicate human bodies to play out this ridiculous and cool story of human beings, with 5 toes (sometimes), a checking account that bounces black and red, with emotions that bounce around like yoyos in a hurricane.

Planet Earth wouldn't be the same without ya, and my life sure as heck wouldn't be as multi-colored.

May we all continue the journey with a lot less stress and a lot more humor. Or at least enough of the latter to aid the former.

Happy Thanksgiving to YOU.

Back to the Drawing Board: Mars Retrograde in Cancer

What's on your drawing board?

A half-finished rough sketch of how you wanted life to be?
We sigh and groan when we're told we have to get back to it, but isn't everything begun at the drawing board?

Mars, the planet of 'Place your Energy HERE', 'I WANT this' and 'Let's make it happen NOW' is turning retrograde tomorrow (November 15) until well into January, to give us a second chance, a second go, another reason and opportunity to go BACK to our drawing board to see if what we're creating and working on is really what we want.

Mars will be moving through Cancer, the sign that relates to a number of things:

Your Home, Family, Domestic Situation: Can we say repairs? How about some home improvement. It's likely. Anger? You betcha, if someone can't be a little more patient. Clearing the air is no doubt the best way to go here. But do louder voices really help people hear? Smoke alarms and fire alarms are either going off, being checked (make it a point), or else someone is burning toast or throwing gas on their furniture because they're 'done'. Either way, heat, aggression and a lot of energy suddenly is sucked into everyones home space, their private domain where no one else can see what's going on. Oh, the things said and done between now and January in homes across the world...

Your Roots and Past
A heck of a lot of reviewing pulls us back to repeat or relive facets of our life story that we're particularly pained over, or proud of. The choice is yours. If it worked well, by all means try it again. If it caused stress, then back off. For everyone's sake. You can get angry about what happened to you back then, but why bother? if anything, channel anger into improving your present situation.

Your Emotions
Digestion problems or stomach complaints now could be a sign of emotional indigestion - being unable to deal with your feelings. Mars retrograding back through such a sensitive sign gives us all a chance to release volatile feelings. Emotions aren't pretty, but who said they were meant to be? Volcanic eruptions of anger, roadrage, the desire to kill kill kill, or self-inflicted wounds on ourselves or on those closest to us are all ways of using mars retrograde. The message is - anger is a fire we can feed, try to stifle or let burn warmly and toast marshmallows over. Using anger to achieve something less destructive is a great idea, especially now.

Okay, so you're angry. great. You tapped into something that doesn't make you happy. mars Retrograde has bestowed its gift to you. Now what?

1. Make amends, clear up the crap, move on.
2. Put all irritation and angst into a plan to improve your situation.
3. Do something good for yourself.
4. Realize you may just be fighting your own guilt, anxiety, inabilities, mistakes, behavior through someone else.
5. Know this too shall pass, have your say then go off and find something useful to do.

Mars, the bringer of War could see a turnaround in military plans. No one 'wins' any war. Maybe retrograde mars will bring a few home explosions as the anger is turned BACK on the propagator.

Since the US is a Cancer country, it's likely we'll see a show of more warrior themes, attacks, anger, bloodshed or violence.

Let me ask you this:

How are things in YOUR home?
When I say home i don't just mean your house, apt, flat, box, dungeon or wherever else you may call home. I'm talking YOU - your skin, your soul. How are things deep within you?

That's a marker for what you'll get involved in with mars Retrograde. If you're repressing anger, something at home may explode or need fixing. If you feel comfortable, you escape from the pains others who are repressing may face. Your HOME is a strong indicator of how much internal peace you have.

Mars relates to:

Anger - so we'll be tested during retrograde, on how well we use our anger, how easily irritable we are, how unkind we can be when we're pissed off, and how we tend to make matters worse by responding to them in this mode. In Cancer, a sign known for its 'sideways' moves, we get to play out an entire period of MAJOR PASSIVE AGGRESSION - my advice, if you're pissed off, tell us. if you bottle it up, you make it worse for everyone. Our emotional trigger points are HOT this period.

Assertion - can you stand your ground? Do confrontations make you freak out or can you handle them in a way that not only establishes your rights, but also allows others room to have their say too? Are you defending your own interests in a healthy way or backing off and letting others dominate space?

Action - retrogrades often pull energy inside of us, so LOOK (and FEEL) before you leap - this is the planetary cycle of WHOOPS - impulsive and impatient actions that can't be taken back or undone. We can however regroup and reformulate our mission, our plan of attack (Mars loves a plan and even more so, an attack).


How well do you respond to 'bad vibes' - annoying people, things, situations or incidents? How do you react when someone accuses you of something, or calls you names or treats you with disrespect? Do we REACT or RESPOND (reacting means to re-act, to act AGAIN repeating a learned knee-jerk reaction) whilst responding is just that - replying, not replaying.

Retrograde Mars will give us a chance to see how we all act and react or respond. Call it our responsibility (response ability) that governs how our lives play out. Chances are pretty high that when you get wrapped up in something ugly, that you're playing some energy game with another of similar vibration (angry people attract angry/triggering people). It's energetics. How will you respond with what you're faced with during this time?

Sex & Desire - What will you do to get what you want? How much do you want? Is sexual frustration masked as irritability and a short fuse (when it comes to fuses, size doesn't matter...). is your desire a problem, as opposed to the NOT getting what you want. Are you pushing for something that is pushing you away or uninterested? Retrograde Mars asks us to reformulate our desires - as it could turn out you don't REALY want what you have become so used to fighting for or chasing....

Launching things
From getting up in the morning, to starting a company to throwing a party, everything has a launch. A beginning. Mars as the impetus behind movement, could reflect a few frustrations and upsets in getting something off the ground. Again, if emotions aren't fully engaged, now is the time when you'll likely be faced with enough delays and blocks or disappointments to help you refocus and relax more (hopefully). Once you let up, energy frees up. Remember that this cycle.

Mars and Health
Mars relates to heat - skin rashes, temperatures, burns. Mars relates to Bangs - cuts, bruises, bumps, wounds, bleeding. Mars relates to adrenalin - adrenal glands, muscles. Mars relates to the Head - headstrong, headfirst, head wounds, headaches.

Retrograde we may see some old symptoms reappear, and in Cancer the sign of the chest and stomach, problems in these areas would reflect an emotional imbalance. Don't eat when angry. Don't comfort eat. Chest issues could reflect a lack of proper self nurturing (we hug people to our breasts, we feed through our breasts, we emotionally keep our feelings close to our chest or need to get things off our chest.
See the connections?

That's a wrap here. Enjoy slowing down. We need to. Follow feelings to their natural conclusion - back to the past, and back to their source. You.

You are in control of your Emotional Experience in this lifetime.

Dancing in the flames: New Moon in Scorpio

Our current lunar phase of new beginnings (the New Moon) is the sign of endings (Scorpio), and the sign of Transformation, moving from one state to another. Nothing is allowed to stagnate now at this New Moon, and how can we have a new beginning if we don't take care of the old stuff hanging around?

Something needs to die now, and the New Moon will bring about the energy to allow for a chapter change. Just as midwives help us birth something, we now need those who can aid us in letting go - who teaches us this? So now, look to play this role in others lives and for others to appear to help you with this process yourself.

Ah, there's an important word now: process. All is a process - don't expect to magically let go of everything that has to leave now. It's our nature to hold on, to dig our nails in to retain some sense of a status quo in our lives, but this new Moon shows it's tough to do that. Something has to go, something has to change, something has to die and be reborn. So accepting that something has to change, is the first step to embracing the theme of this current lunar cycle.

This New Moon:

Realize what's keeping you chained to pain, and give it up
Look at your addiction to the dark side
Begin some recycling scheme
Clear out things you no longer, use, value, need, like Be open to intimacy and going deeper
Seek support, give support, pool resources, talents
Face your shadow
Shed a skin and don't look back

Realize your power of choice
Watch horror movies, and notice the symbolism of facing your fear/demons Investigate, research, uncover, probe
Ask for a loan, extend credit, seek financial advice/support
Accept it's OVER
Use passion to move mountains
Take your anger, rage, jealousy, hatred and channel it into something positive in your life
Enjoy sex with a soul connection

Learn Tantra
Try Kundalini Yoga
Visit a sex shop, indulge in erotica, discover your hidden desires
Accept and embrace your Power - power 'is', it's what you do with it that matters most
Undergo hypnosis, surgery, counseling
Talk about taboos
Order the Karmic Insight and Past Life Report (to detail what you're carrying with you from other lives that maybe tripping you up still. Buy thse two and choose a third FREE under the current special). See samples here.
Cast a spell or perform a ritual to enhance your power and release negativity

New Moon square Chiron
Are we really emotionally wounded or is it just an excuse to lick our wounds and hide from society, friends or connecting? Sulking is a sign you're not being honest about how you feel. If anything, we get to reprogram our own mothering instincts again now. We get to parent ourselves now - ask yourself in each and every moment 'Am I comfortable', 'Do I feel okay about this'. If not - why not? And what will you do to regain emotional ground once more. Is an old habit ready to die? Will you let it?

New Moon square Neptune

Don't kid yourself into thinking you've moved on from certain lessons by ignoring them or avoiding them. They still may carry a charge - and basically, if you're even SEEING an ounce of an old karmic lessons, the residue is still around. The question becomes - how much emotional energy will you invest in it as this may ignite it once more. Cutting ties is good if it involves forgiveness within. Addictions may arise once more now - are you running away from doing what you know you need to do (and keep saying you will do?) Enjoy a time out, just don't disappear for good.

New Moon trine Mars and Uranus
The impetus (Mars) and freedom (Uranus) to turn in a new direction is here so grab it. Who cares if it's new ground and there IS no permanent comfort (don't seek that in this lunar cycle, or you'll be left wanting. Each moment holds a conflict between keeping things the same (however crappy) or shaking free. Stay flexible, and don't give up if things don't go according to plan (whose plan?). it's time to free yourself - changing any area of your life that has become Boring. Simple as that. If you're fed up with it - CHANGE IT BY CHANGING YOUR INTERACTION WITH IT. Perspective, involvement, even fantasies surrounding it.


So, at this New Moon we get to ask ourselves:

Are we truly ready to give up the pain of our past & present?
Are we willing to try a new approach?
Do we have an open mind?
Can we risk losing a comfort zone that wasn't THAT comfy to begin with?
Are we willing to replace stagnation
with new energies and new experiences?

Prepare for the death of one way, and the birth of a new path, a new possibility and a new power.

See you on the other side - with the shocking new hairstyle or job, or whatever else you're ready to ring the changes with. Let me know where your own personal zaniness comes forth!

Retrograde in Retrospect

Mercury Retrograde is over.

In Scorpio, it's been quite an intense time for many of us, so this is a short review, as a last look at this particular retrograde cycle. Normally I get to enjoy a time out of sorts, a recuperation and a way of catching up with myself which has been afforded me in a number of ways = but how do you take a time out when many others are going through the tailspins usually associated with Mercury in Retrograde?

Balance as always is a key, and to keep a reminder close by mentally or physically that all we meet, is but a fragment of ourselves, lost of forgotten but ever close at hand to remind us of who we could be, who we were, who we will be/may be, and who we can be if we choose to move with our flow rather than against it.

"Going with the flow"
is always the Mercury Retrograde theme, even if you:

lose your home as many did in California (with the onslaught of forest fires), even if you lose your best friend (a friend of mine received word her friend had been killed by a drunk driver yesterday), even if family sees you as a destructive force by continuing on your own way shining light in areas others would rather not touch (as in my case this month and many others I have witnessed), even if you lose a job (as another friend did after losing one previous to that, through no fault of his own), even if you lost your voice (as some Scorpios did), even if you missed a deadline because you realized you were a week out of whack (as another friend did, losng a major assignment), even if you lose power and all technical devices along with your workload (as I did two days back while on a call to Amsterdam)....


Giving something up. A Scorpio theme. By hook or by crook, Scorpio is a theme of letting go. BY force, or by choice. What did you lose, I wonder? What didn't work out as you would have LIKED this past three weeks?

Other highlights I found amusing (and annoying all the same) were:

The electrical piano a friend so kindly sent me from overseas (to reignite my love of playing and beauty in creating music, since my old piano I kissed goodbye in England) arrived under Retrograde and would not work. Talks with the company did no good, customer service was useless. I gave up. And then, on a day when I really had no desire to try and figure it all out, a few mouse clicks and MAGIC - the thing worked.

The electrical outage
that cut off the last portion of a reading I was giving to a friend in Amsterdam that took out my building and the rest of my block plunging us all into an abyss (yet creating a magical peaceful vibe with no buzzing, no music just the sound of our hearts beating).

The reverse decision
of a magazine to publish my column that was already ready to go and all completed, based on an "editorial" issue.

The Writers Strike
here in Los Angeles that could land everyone without their daily dose of TV escapism (unless there are Retrograde, huh?)

The near strike of the trash collectors out here which would have been a very stinky mess.

The talks of strikes in the postal services here and in England, a very common thing under Mercury (mail deliveries) Retrograde.

I am sure there are countless more. The main theme I've seen lately has been a major trawling of our minds (Scorpio) into dark places. Our own psyche and that of those whose lives we share and who share our own. Dark times are interesting places to find light - inner light. And retrograde planets, by their inner retrograde motion, are the pathways that lead us to that which is hidden inside.

As we move back on track with Mercury, don't allow the lessons learned, and the experiences gathered during the past 3 weeks be forgotten as timely reminders that it's our duty as spirits-living-human=lives to know that greater forces are always at work, and that loss really could be an opportunity for something greater, if only we can let our egos stop demanding full compliance. Why do we fear so much a loss of power, when we are immensely powerful beings?

Breathe. Sigh. Relax.
And give yourself another couple of weeks to feel you're finally out of the tunnel, free of the forest, and back on the open roads once more.

Take one last look back now, salute, smile and hey - if you're reading this - you made it! You're still alive, hanging on and that is one amazingly frigging cool thing, especially with the cosmic tides the way they have been lately.

Welcome back! It's great to be sharing this wonderfully wacky journey with you.
