A look back at Your 2008

Honor 2008. The crappy things that went amiss. The people you thought would stay forever but who had to go. The ones you never dreamed you'd meet (and the ones you wished you hadn't). The shitty people who crossed your path. The idiotic things that happened that threw you for a loop. The people who arrived to make you smile and laugh and the ones who ran away. As we stand on the verge of another calendar year, I invite you to take a look back at the lessons, challenges, triumphs, people, places, loves, losses, miracles and nightmares that made up YOUR own story.

Did you make the most of planetary transits? Have a look at the following checklist:

1. Did you defeat prejudice inside
(Pluto in Sagittarius) and open yourself up to learning through each person you met? Did you allow others their opinions without cutting them off or destroying them? Did you finally change something you believed for so long that wasn't altogether true for YOU?

2. Did you clean up a major portion of your life (or attempt to) or did you sink back further into addictive/escapist behavior and drift with the tide? (The Pisces/Virgo eclipses). Did you direct drama into creating something, to further the collective, or sink into petty ego fights demanding attention when you could have supported social causes? (The Leo/Aquarius eclipses).

3. Did you forgive, forget or otherwise move on with your full being from situations that crashed and burned and died a death around you? Did you truly move on or did you kid yourself into believing you'd made a clean slate?

4. Did you expand your business horizons,
seek new work with optimism, spread your business wings and use the Universal Laws to manifest or at least draw up a blueprint of what you want to build? (Jupiter in Capricorn)

5. Did you clean up your act when it came to your daily schedule, your health picture and your job situation? Were you practical, essential and did you simplify your life and find a way to be of service to those around you? (Saturn in Virgo)

6. Did you get back up when your 'plan' failed
and continued on regardless, and did you learn to soften and 'accept' when faced with resistance? (Saturn opposite Neptune).

8. Did you get a sniff of where you're abusing Power or feeling powerless
, with a view to stepping back into your personal power without taking away others' right to theirs? (Pluto in Capricorn).

No matter. Every step of every road is a marker for our own choices. And here we stand on the threshold of another calendar year, full of new promise, new obstacles to test your mettle, new people to aid you (or attempt to thwart you) on your new path, new horizons to see, new opportunities, new ways to spread or try your wings.
New reasons to get out of bed, and new reasons to experience the freshness of each moment.

Whatever 2008 brought, it's time to turn a page, turn a cheek and turn our sights now on new fields in which to play. Stay tuned for a look ahead to what 2009 MAY hold (if you so choose) and some of the things likely to face us all as a collective, as we move into this new phase of the journey.

2008 was a '1' year - a year of new people, new challenges, having to "start over" and finding new parts of ourselves (or reigniting old parts we'd nearly forgotten about). This is all part of the story of 2008. Setting the stage for events to follow in the coming year.

More on 2009's promise soon.

In the meantime, a Happy OLD year to you, and an even greater New Year - if you can keep your eyes focused on your ultimate goal.

A quotation I have carried for some time now in my wallet and now beside me at the computer as I type is appropriate to pass on to you now, on the verge of a new era:

Be happy for this moment....
...for this moment is Your Life.

See you on the flip side!

And thank you ALL who read this, for sharing with me in 2008. I'll do my best s always to help navigate you ahead, offer choices, possible solutions and support on your road ahead.

Your Spiritual Sidekick, Astro-Ally & Neptunian Navigator,

Your final reality-check of 2008: Saturn turns Retrograde (Dec 31)

How much fine-tuning have you been doing? Jeez. If it wasn't your health acting up, it was your job situation, (loss, change, instability, annoyances), and if it wasn't your relationships (nitpicking problems that wouldn't go away and details you had to iron out over and over) it was personal stuff you've been trying to perfect and polish. In short, it's been tight, and you've been through the juicer.

Life is about editing, and maintenance for us all right now with Karmic Saturn in Clean-It-Up Virgo. You simply can't escape the Glaring Problems in your life. However Saturn now slips backwards for ONE FINAL GO AT AN AREA YOU'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET RIGHT FOR SOME TIME NOW.

Your new Deadline (yep, it's not over) is JUNE 2009. By then you'll have been given ample time to get it in working order, better shape, smoother and more efficient, and more helpful to you and your life (and other people!).

So, that's great news right? The bad news is some troubles may flare up again to help you get on the right page. So if they do, you know where to come. Right back here to see what's going on, or check in with me personally. But you have your warning right now on the last day of 08!

It's all for a great reason. By June 2009, you WILL be in a place to move ahead, and by August 2009, you'll be finally FREE of these lessons. For at least another 29 years, which can't be bad. By then you'll have more wisdom and maturity and experience under your belt. But...will your life be in a better place by then? That takes effort now before at least one ship passes you by. Life is about Choice.

Not bad, eh?

Can you withstand the stress now, for a long-term solution? If so, DO it. Do the work. Take the pressure. Commit. Withstand the stress. Don't quit. Sharpen your skills and resolve. Improve the situation, however slight.

If you've been lazy and skimping, life is sure to have kicked you in the butt recently. You weren't developing yourself and life to your full potential. Your harvest failed. Your success, not forthcoming.

Now's your chance to get back in the game!

That's it, we're not talking major change with this, just a slow, steady and sure step-by-step plan of action to improve that problem area of your life.

Breathe! it's all unfolding to a Higher Plan. After this, you'll see your own mastery in the face of a problem that seemed insurmountable. Now is your chance to GO BACK OVER IT to see if you missed a SIMPLER SOLUTION.

There is a better way. It's just a case now, of trying it.

To your new life, and the current irritations that'll get you to it.

Night Fight or Fighting the Night: Mars meets Pluto (Dec 27)

It's violent, it's ruthless, its INTENSE - and you can't escape it. This week you either get to experience it or witness it. Military Mars meets All Or Nothing Pluto creating the scenario for ultimate Change, whether we like it or not.

From divorces to death, from firings at work to firings in the streets, to cutting out the rotten parts of your life to entering therapy to try and transform them that way.

We ask ourselves Do I try and maintain things, resist temptation, stay out of trouble and work on my personal "stuff", or do I seek an external situation or scenario which will help me to either implode or explode, thus creating the necessary (and sweeping) change.

What may happen now? Well you could end up in a violent setting. You could unleash. Or be unleashed on. Either way you're no victim, this has been building a while. Wake up.

You could take it instead into building instead of pure destruction. Use your energy now don't let it use you. You may find yourself faced with some truly ugly situations and have to relinquish control and walk. You may find something ends or dies and you lose control anyway. You may find others trying to control you or abuse you, in which case you draw a line. And yet you may find that by facing the Darkness you transform yourself and step into the Light.

Sexual energy is high - we either feast or go celibate. We find problems playing out in how and who we seek sexual expression with. And if you're single, maybe it's how you process your dark side. We push to the death when it comes to what we want. We say YES YES YES or NO, NEVER. Intense, seething, powerful and probing. Great to take to the bedroom, not so great outside,unless you're a cutthroat business dealer or a criminal (plenty of those around to help aid us in furthering our own growth, so be aware!).

Spiritually, it's time to take out further trash (yes, again). It's time to face the stuff we swept under the carpet (symbolically) or stuffed in the closet (symbolically AND literally). What's in your psychic storage? What deep seated fear or issue is festering still? It's time to let it out. Forget fighting, it no longer works. It's time to let it go, stop feeding the fire and time to focus on HOW TO TRANSFORM ANY DARK SITUATION YOU FIND YOURSELF IN.

How do we do that? Perhaps by leaving. Perhaps by giving it one last shot. Perhaps by finding the ROOT CAUSE. Perhaps by taking a radically different approach. Perhaps by bowing and bending, perhaps by accepting forgiveness or failure.

We each play a role now in our collective transforming. But as humans we don't often like change. We try and hold on, attracting situations that FORCE us to change. And it hurts. This is one of those weeks when change finds us. When the things we have avoided are suddenly knocking at the door. We face the shadow - either in someone else and what they "do to us" or in the form of our own Shadows - fear, anger, jealousy, hurt, resentment, pain.

What is your fuel? What powers your battery? The Dark Stuff, or the struggle to take the dark stuff to a higher level, transmuting pain into understanding. To Breakdown to break through?

it's not an easy week. but it's worth the crap we go through to free ourselves from our own games, manipulations and belief that we have no power. We do. The Power to Respond in a way that is no longer "reaction". To Change Our Script.

Check your fuel tank, if you're low, perhaps it's time to refuel at a new station...

Be Intense, but Do Something Useful with it.

Winter Solstice of Death: Sun enters Capricorn (Dec 21)

Keep an eye out on events tomorrow that hint at what you're trying to destroy, what you're trying to rebirth and transform in your life, what Must Change in your life story and how this may all play out for you - offering options, choices, and hints at avenues you'd rather not take, to give you a choice to change before you're forced to.

Just as Scrooge faced the death of everything he had built (that which was built on "bad vibes"" shall we say) and forced to change his ways), this Solstice has a very similar message for those who don't heed its tidings.

During this winter solstice, the sun teams up with Pluto at 0 degrees Capricorn. Some part of our life story is in for a crash and burn and rise again scenario (if you haven't noticed it happening already that is). If you're already lightening your load, simplifying your life and bringing LOVE to all you do, encounter, witness and want, you'll be fine. It's the ones who are controlling, domineering, manipulating and causing pain intentionally that will suffer the most, I have no doubt (don't they always anyway?)

So keep your senses ON, during Dec 21 as the world witnesses a continuing collapse and destruction of what no longer works, and new systems implemented that take into account all the smaller cogs in the machinery. However, are the new systems a new form of control? Are you kidding yourself or are you truly committed to freedom within yourself from old haunting obsessions and pains?

Whatever in your life isn't taking into account the WHOLE, will continue to glitch. Stay alert and make the necessary changes and be ready to LET GO where need be. We're all in this together, and this Winter, we get to shed our own baggage as the trees shed leaves.

Shake off the old, it's already gone but you're hanging tight to yesterday.

P.S winter continues the theme of big business running into big trouble, and the fall of empires built on the illusion of separation. We're in this together and we're about to truly see this. Keep your spirits up and witness the demise of further institutions in society that aren't helping us out! Yay! Bring on the new!

Spiraling onwards and upwards,

Your Plutonian Promoter,

Empty your Head! Full Moon in Gemini (Dec 12)

Lot on your mind?

With the current Gemini-flavored Full Moon we're all playing mental pinball. Either your thoughts are on what's going wrong/not working/problematic....on what you want/need/desire to see manifest in your life....or on the many possible paths playing out of what "could" go wrong if you never get what you want and are stuck on what's going wrong...etc etc and etc.

Talk about mental overload!

The way I see it under a Gemini Full Moon is that any tension in your life is showing you where you have resistance. The pictures you carry in your head this next two weeks shape what's to come next in your life, or at least play a huge role in determining possible outcomes, or the scenery on your road.

Major decisions are inevitable now - watch what your mind does when faced with options. Some decisions are out of our hands, while others put us in a quandary. Either way you have to get clear now on what you want, and whether you're spending enough time in the day to at least focusing on THAT possibility.

So...check in with yourself periodically, this week and next. Catch yourself dwelling, stewing, suffering, complaining and SNAP OUT OF IT. Re-orient your brainpower into picturing a new possibility. Minds love options so give it something fun to work on, instead of feeding it your usual negative worst-case-scenarios.

This Full Moon opposes Mars - your gut says one thing but you're pushing for another. Someone plays the sensitive one, while the other plays the angry one. Are you staying in or going out? Are you caring or daring? Can you be both? Give yourself room to breathe and roam, and you'll have no trouble. Work at home, on the home and making things comfier, then get out on a road trip or to a bookstore and feed your brain with new things (again) to avoid tension. IMPORTANT: People will disagree with your way, your beliefs and practices. Let them. Steer clear of ideological arrogance. Act on feeling, and feed/fuel your creative fires instead of lighting someone's hair.

Careful when out driving, people speed under these conditions so don't let emotions land you in an impulsive accident. Or a fight. Or a ticket. If you're crabby, withdraw and work on your feelings. If you're angry, chances are you're not meeting one of your Top 5 "needs". Feed yourself!

This Full moon is challenged by Saturn - feelings clash with what HAS to be done. You KNOW you need to go to the gym, pick up bread, fix the car, lend a hand to your friend in need. You WANT to watch mindless TV, waste time chatting online, write your journal or just sit and think. Obligation battles with frustration. You'd rather read but have to do laundry. The weight of what MUST be taken care of, hampers your need for lightness and fresh air. Best advice: tick off your chores by doing two things at once or bounce between them till they are complete. Details count but you also need room to make mistakes.

Note: Keep an open mind, maybe your way isn't as perfect as you think. Being anal gets you nowhere this cycle. If anything, focus on Mental Health first and foremost, and everything else will run smoother. (Also, re-work your schedule, it's probably worn out by now).

This Full Moon is soothed by Neptune - inspiration is there if we want it. Friends have a magical way of passing on messages without knowing it. Don't get stuck in LOGIC when a right brain dreamed up solution works better. Write down your dreams this week. Do it! Better yet, lie down while awake, and see what comes to you horizontally. Ideas are weird, unique, bizarre and pretty damn great so write them down or they'll be lost in the next brainstorming cloud.

This Full Moon is championed by Chiron - making it an easier time to heal on all levels. From small boo boos and scrapes, to emotional hurts. All it takes is a change of mind now to activate your true healing. A different approach just somehow works now. Forget tradition or what others say works. You're already healed or at least healing....and it's not half as bad as you think if you're still here and reading this, (but egos do love the drama).

This Full Moon is zapped by Uranus -
boy do we feel bored. We want to get the hell out but we're unsure what change to make! Our dreams inspire us to jump out of tall buildings but reality is another story. Be wild and wily at least to offset stuffiness. But realize boredom is your enemy now, and you'll dream up or actually encounter plenty of resistance and barriers and blockers, if you're seeking to rebel against something. Don't squander your freedom,

GRAND MUTABLE CROSS: This Full Moon is particularly challenging because it joins a large pattern of tension, in basic terms it means BE FLEXIBLE but don't use that as an excuse to drift, be lazy and be unreliable. Go with the flow and know that feelings, no matter HOW dire, come and go, ebb and flow, and aren't meant to linger, unless we elect to keep them around by choosing to replay thoughts that inspire those feelings. Very important words, this cycle.

THIS WEEK'S MAJOR ADVICE - fresh air is a must now. Air out your brain. Open up your head. Let out old words and breathe new possibilities in. Clear mental obstructions. Speak your mind. Get it off your chest. Write it, sing it, shout it, mail it. Tell them. Then forget it. Better yet - CHANGE YOUR MIND! Re-focus. Change how you're going to perceive and see something. Re-frame it. Change the story surrounding it. You only saw ONE side of it, right?
What you see (inside) is what you'll get (outside) more often than not.

And finally...look around your local environment for messages and clues for you. Overheard conversations (wow people are really gossiping have you noticed?) Gems of wisdom pour from mouths, books, the radio etc. Just be careful, a lot is SAID now, but is it truth or just a really good story.

Stop replaying the same stories yourself, start telling the world (and yourself) new tales. It's time to stop living in the past or at least change how you view it, and how you allow others to view your history. Turn your past into a conspiracy to help you and...somehow, will.

More soon!

Free and freshen your mind!

Shock to your System? Uranus goes Direct (Nov 27)

Felt a shock wave move through your life? I did. A massage table collapsed today crashing me to the floor and badly bruising my back while I was having a treatment for re-alignment. You have to laugh.

Uranus works that way - whenever you need a shock to the system, he delivers with swift and mostly uncertain action. But you feel it. He was moving retrograde since June 26, forcing us to look at how free we feel inside and now he's marching back to the forward beat of his distant drummer.

What does that mean for YOU, you cry?

For us all, it's an outer shift representing an inner sense of renewed freedom.
Recent events in your life may involve sudden shocks, disconnects, surprises, u-turns, reversals, electrifying revelations, unnerving change, exciting innovations and radical alterations as though the renovation team had moved into your life to knock down walls and create a holy world of noise right under your feet. All to pull you to making a physical change in alignment with energetic changes ALREADY going on inside you.

Everything in the physical world is old - manifested from a thought-form that came way before its physical arrival.

Uranus now enables you to do what you really want to do - BE FREE!

So current changes are all enabling you to do just that, break free of stifling patterns and bad habits that keep you trapped and chained to a life you're used to...but not one that's right for you.

Where did your life go?

Here's a quick snapshot for you to check where you're being re-wired right now:

Aries - Unconsciously, as you break free of things you've been doing forever. Bad dreams and disturbing emotions that rear up from nowhere are here to help you clear your conscience once and for all. it all fades, falls, crumbles physically but spiritually it stays with you. Change your hold on your physical life and tap back into your core spiritual center, and all shocks will feel like orgasms and less like touching a badly wired socket.

Taurus - Socially you either have to contribute and stop complaining or suffer being just one amongst a very unhappy bunch. If you have something to change, change your relationship to your own individuality, your own weirdness. Get socially active if you're really frustrated. Re-wire your friendships, after all you're only as good as the company you keep, and the company you are. And what about your future? How do you want it to look? Start now.

Gemini - Direction-wise, it's a time when you could jump ship, decide to make a u-turn or push for more freedom and space where you're at. You need a destination but more than that, it's time to change your offerings to the world - are you trying to help or looking to be helped out? Let air in, your career path could be getting too stuffy.

Cancer - What you believe begins to show signs of insecurity and uncertainty, as you realize what you've been boxing yourself into is a propaganda paradigm of your own construction. Whether you open your mind or have it wrenched apart, traveling to new places, learning new things helps you do what you need to do now - un-learn stuff, forget your wisdom and stay open to living your truth.

Leo - Freeing yourself from your addiction to the dark side of life - from sexual problems, to relationship entanglements on the shadier side, your own emotional "stuff" gets an airing as you realize that freedom now does indeed come with a complete overhaul and total transformation. Desire burns, but you'll get burned if you can't just let it go, with no grudges held.

Virgo - Relationship changes are inevitable - you can only go as far as you 'grow'. Fresh air could mean a split, a break, a separation, permanent or temporary as both parties withdraw to decide what they need. mostly it'll be a question of change, freedom, selfhood and space that will aid and shift your connections. Sometimes the best thing for togetherness is separateness, and it's something you'll come to appreciate.

Libra - How your body is or is not working needs a shake-up. As does your routine, your daily schedule, what you do when you get up (or don't do) and how - in general - your entire life can be done better, lived easier, experienced healthier etc. If that means a job shock, so be it. Or a physical issue you'll have to get figured out. What's your body trying to tell you? Check Louise Hay's Heal Your Life for ideas on that. Get out of boxes. You'll breathe and live easier.

Scorpio -
Creativity seethes beneath your bubbling exterior and your inner child screams at you to change how you handle this energy. Whether you wind up splashing paint on the walls or your own body, it's time to throw something unique in your cauldron and find new hues to enrich your life with. The artist in you wants something unlike anything you've ever created. Romance now has to be wild and free or at least unpredictable. Routine has stifled your artistic creations. Free yourself to free them.

Sagittarius - Where you live, how you live, who you live with and where you call home - boy if that hasn't changed or shifted you're lucky or just about to experience it. it's not about that though, it's about how much you're living in alignment with your soul, your TRUE needs and self. True you'll have to let a lot of this go, but re-potting puts you in better soil, that's its job. So go with it. Change rifles through your family, your basement, your hidden boxes and your inner heart. Let it. Breathe it out and find a new nest more in tune with your new growing self.

Capricorn - With a mind buzzing, you're intent on change but don't know where, but you will. Some decision is imminent or most likely already made that changes everything but involves a decision to give something up, dissolve it or let it be. Can you go on mental cruise control? Dreaming up a new way is your only way now - as creative imagination takes you to new heights. If you can see it in your minds eye, you can, truly have it. If you let yourself.

Aquarius - It'd be easy to say that your cash flow changes now or is about to through a major shake-up but that's true for most of us. What is guaranteed is that it's more a question of what you're willing to do to get what you want now. Your priorities have shifted, dramatically. You simply don't value the same shit. Lets be honest, that's what it's become, right? What are you worth? And what is worth you? The rest is dragging you down and depleting your innermost resources.

Pisces - It's anyone's guess what changes are heading your way. Uranus does an about-turn in your sign. You're given carte-blanche to shift any and all of your life. Mostly you'll find it's about the freedom to be you. The space to be free to be a mess, the best, quiet, loud. Whatever. Somehow, you fell asleep lately and life is forcing you out of the bed, to pursue your spiritual path once more. Listen to the wake-up alarm.

Finders, Seekers: The Sagittarius New Moon (Nov 27)

Okay where now?

In Sagittarius Season we go on a hunt - for more, better, further. Reminded that life is full of a bounty of one sort or another, life opens a door, clears a road or space and asks us, "Now where?". Didn't you forget you're in the driver's seat?

We can't all be millionaires at the same time, we can't all be happily married or dating at the same time, and we can't all be taking vacations at the same time. That's now how life is set up currently on Earth. But we CAN have it all, if we realize that life is infinite and that our Chart represents a moment of time - we are ambassadors of that Moment in Time. Everything we do affects that moment of time that we represent, and in changing our lives, in each choice we make, we change the very moment we are. The Moment of our birth. Yes, we change the past...all from the present moment.

One choice now could change everything for you. That's the power of a New Moon and nowhere is the possibility of great things more apparent than in Sagittarius, the signs of grand schemes, amazing dreams and mighty adventures. Shoot for the Moon and you may just land there. And never judge a story until it's final page - and even then, how do you know it's really truly over?

This unique New Moon brings in the fast-paced mental energy of Mercury we get to walk our talk. Listen to what you're saying about your "life story", and where you're in need of a new adventure. Have something to promote? get published. Think you can have something to offer? Start teaching. No one listening? Find a town where people will.

A lot of people are jabbering away, but is much getting done? Be one of the ones making use of your time instead of frittering it away on just good ideas.

Mercury offers us new connections further afield - through broadcast media radio, TV, Internet, magazines, newspapers, talk shows, billboards, cell phones, pagers, etc). Seek out new avenues to have your say. Explore ways of widening your world and connecting to more (and more open) people. Get out of your cultural comfort zone and see how others do this thing called "life".

With Mars also connected to this New Moon, it's a time of fires or fireworks, angry scenes, amped up folk and energetic responses to everything going on. So you're pissed off? Great - now put it to use for you. Act on it. Use it. Fuel yourself to getting something done. Get a ball rolling. And sex? Try outside, try on the road, in the road, by the road, anywhere but in bed. You know you want to.

Expect some bulls eye home truths now - people don't want to hold back. And why should they? It's time to clear the air, clear the decks and clear your chest. Hear the truth, speak the truth but don't ram it down every one's throats. Do you want to be understood? Good luck - the loudest voice isn't always 'right'.

If anything, break your chains now as we leave 2008 behind. Old ideas, nagging addictions that distract you from a place of inner peace. Let it all go. You don't need it. All stress now seems to come from some manifestation of a belief in being trapped somehow and somewhere. Breathe. Be mentally free before you seek to feel free and thus BE free.

You can't keep your TRUE self down any longer. Whoever you REALLY are and were meant to be is coming back to remind you. Will you fight it, or become this person you truly are, all masks aside?

What do you believe?

At the New Moon we get to look closely at our own version of 'Truth'. Does it fit our new life or are we clutching to old beliefs. A timely question as we approach a Holiday that many now celebrate merely for the twinkling lights and gifts. After all - how many really feel religiously connected to a dated story that spans many religions (same dates, different names)?

Belief rules the world as what we believe, we seem to get - we're living under a Self Fulfilling Prophesy and this New Moon we get to learn something new to help us make a leap into a new world, based on new energy and less on traditions and beliefs we have held just because it seemed like a good idea.

We're ready to open a door, throw open the window and explore the world at large. It's so vast yet we forget, as we move from one box (our bed) to another (our home) to another (our car) to another (the store) to another (the office cubicle) to another (the bus) to another (the coffin!).

No, in all seriousness, it's worth considering where your freedom is this week - and if you can venture past the city limits of your own Comfort Zone.

We're all students and teachers at the same time now - we receive messages and pass them on unknowingly.

This New Moon asks us to:

Get out on a trip somewhere
Pick up a new book, learn a new language, do something totally new
Expand space - clear up at home, move clutter, give yourself leg room and elbow space
Be the free spirit you truly are
Allow others their own space
Redefine your belief system and don't get caught up in holy wars
Stop preaching
Stand for something new - rework your 'message'
Ask yourself - am I being honest or bluffing?
Walk your talk!

Bridge Cultural Divides
Go Horse riding
Tell the truth no matter how painful or nervous it makes you
Find greener grass
Reach for a dream, star, better situation
Laugh - comedy is SO needed now!
Be optimistic, reconnect with your inner faith
Renew your religious or spiritual vows or connections
Ask the Big Questions of your life and Destiny

Publish a new book or get writing
Start a new course or take an exam
Live with integrity
Be an example, even if no one else is doing it
Have faith in the silver lining and the light at the end of the tunnel
Kick up the dust and take off
Put up a map, or map out a new course or destination
Enjoy the journey for what it is
Keep moving!
Visit overseas or a new town, city - anywhere you've not been before!
Keep your mind active and your limbs moving

Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign - think of the forest fires we've heard about so often on the news now. That's sag - spreading wildly, untamed and running free like the Centaur; the symbol of the sign.

See your Bigger Picture. Forget the small stuff and don't sweat the details. Stand back. Gain perspective. Climb a Hill, take a breather, look beyond the current time frame of circumstance and find the bigger meaning.

There's no reason to get bogged down in chilly feelings or emotional potholes now - the road of life is showing us a new horizon, a new exit, a detour to a new place. Are we "present" enough to see this?

Choices open up and once again we see just where our freedom and power lies - in choosing the best for ourselves. You cannot fool someone out of the truth -it's felt in our heart and guts and souls as a bell chiming inside. Truth seeks truth and finds it this week - so the question becomes:

Are you living the life you were born to live?
Anything else is a lie. Honesty isn't the best policy, then.
It's the only one. And assurance (and insurance)
of Bliss, guaranteed.

Pluto enters Capricorn: Take II (Nov 26)

We had a taste of it on January 25 and now it's here for good. Pluto, the energy of total transformation, deep and dire destruction - all for the soul-purpose (pun intended) of clearing away the decks to reveal our bare bones essence - leaves behind Sagittarius (destroying our beliefs, shoving new possibilities under our noses, rebirthing the airline industry (Sag rules travel), bringing down international barriers (Sag rules foreign connections) and continuing to unearth deep seeds of destruction within religion and other belief-oriented institutions... enter Capricorn, the sign of Authority, Government, Structure and the 'System'. Where now?

I've said a lot on Pluto in Capricorn already, not least of all was the predicted bank closures I discussed in my earlier blog. Here is is again for you to digest so you know the likely manifestations (some of them) during this new major major astrological cycle.

Pluto in Capricorn: The Current Crumbling (written on Jan 25 2008)

I'll soon go into what it means for us all PERSONALLY but this is a beginners look at the anticipated collective experiences.

November 26 marks a watershed, a transition, a period of renewal. In all shapes, large or small, we're feeling the move into a new area, a testing of our newfound powers and a cleansing of our old traumas and dramas, painful at first, but from which comes deep, and LASTING healing.

Hurt to heal, and heal to help,

2009 Early Bird Special Reading!

I've had some messages from you about the 2009 Early Bird Special, because I didn't mention it on the Blog here, so some of you missed it. It was on the front page and Current Specials page (the place to check out often for specials) but I know some of you have been knee-deep in personal transformations of am extending this for one more week.

Voila - you can find out all about this special 2009 Reading and book in advance for the next week only. And then I'll be offering it at the usual rate in January 09. So you can still book your place in advance and save a bit in the process.

2009 Early Bird Special

Here's to the new adventures that await you in 2009 and I look forward to lookingahead for you and with you!


Get out and Find out! Sun enters Sagittarius (Nov 21)

Yea yea, so it's been dark recently. Psychic garbage filled out lives and we've been "taking out the trash" so to speak. All that stuff we lugged around from the past - our childhood, our past life, whatever, wherever. How has your 'emotional cleansing' going?

Good news: the Sun just moved into the sign of Sagittarius - the sign of expanding horizons, silver linings, fresh opportunities. it's time to open our minds to a new possibility, to go in search of a new potential, to seek out a truth, to visit a new place, to sample a new philosophy, to try to incorporate a new belief into our life.

It's time to turn on your Inner Gypsy and hit the road on a quest for...whatever you want. Who cares if you find it, this month. The Journey is everything, and you never know who or what you'll meet along the way.

Expect a foreign influence, someone with an accent, someone whose belief clashes with yours. Welcome it. Expand your cultural reference. See what code of conduct others live by and re-work your own. if in doubt, get out on an adventure.

If you're bored, you're not using the bounty available to us all right now - be willing to take a risk, gamble on something, and go out and find out for yourself. A book gets you so far, so does a movie, so does gossip or rumor...but it's time to find out for yourself.

Happy Travels!

Cutting Strings Attached: Full Moon in Taurus (Nov 12)

Here's a re post of what the Taurus Full Moon means for the next couple of weeks, along with some current themes on this particular one.

What do you value?

If you're not exactly sure, then look at what you:

* Spend money on
* Spend your time doing
* Get deeply involved in
* Do to earn money
* Surround yourself with
* Do with no compensation because you adore doing it
* Like having, enjoying, being

These things show us, (whether we agree with them or not) what we actually VALUE. And yes, they can be out of whack with what we 'claim' to value in life.

This Taurus Full Moon (Nov 12) opens a dialogue between our conscious and unconscious on what it is that we actually do value and if our values are aligned with our soul.

Where are you at materially? Is having little freeing you to pursue more "spiritual" goals? Is being "spiritual" going without financially? Is money "evil" or just another form of energy? Can you be rich spiritually and STILL have a comfy bank balance? What do you owe? Are you being honest or manipulating people out of their possessions?

Taurus is about money, but it goes deeper than that. It's about self-worth. The amount of comfort in your life RIGHT NOW is in direct proportion to how much comfort you feel able to handle. Maybe the things that bother you are in place (by you) to keep you from being too apathetic (if I have to struggle to survive, I can't be lazy..").
it's worth a thought.

Prosperity Consciousness: is happy with what it has, enjoys quality, knows that price tags don't mean a thing but will happily spend fully on what feels good. Knows that the Universe is limitless and that as fruit trees continue to shed apples, money going out will return, because they are using it to create and enjoy beauty and aren't withholding - from themselves OR others. Money is another form of energy - like hugs, or kisses. It's enjoyed, created to be enjoyed, allowed to come in and spent on continuing the cycle. It's not always about money though - it's just a sense of feeling rich no matter what, and money is a reflection of this. They are happy with whatever they have, they are full. They always are.

Poverty Consciousness: feels there is a limited supply so must hold on, save, scrimp and be "practical". Luxuries are a waste of money. Things have to be worked hard for. Others have more so in order to gain more, they have to withhold and protect what they have and give out little, in order to save it and make it grow. They worry it's all going to come to an end and they'll become homeless, or foodless so they live with the fear and therefore the need to safeguard and never FULLY enjoy what they have - as it may leave at any time. They feel lighter and cleaner having less, even though they may claim to want more.

Which one are you living in tune with most of the time? Since this forms the basis for most of your interaction with the material (Taurus) of this earth plane (and this lunar phase) it's time to get back in tune with what feels good to YOU.

At this Full Moon some good ideas:

Celebrate your soul's vehicle - your body
Eat well - cook a gourmet meal, bake bread, a cake, make muffins, make it a FEAST!
Save something - bargain hunt, sale shop, go for quality not quantity, but don't pay full price!
Count what you have - add up numbers, balance your checkbook, clear debts
Know what you have, and the decide what you want and need
HUG! Friends, family, strangers, anyone who'll let you! In return you'll be hugged. Give a massage or go get one.
Be sexual - enjoy everything about your body, and give up guilt
Value everything you do - after all it's an extension of you.
Do what makes you feel good
Sing - Taurus connects to the throat chakra and thyroid

Paint - Taurus is the sign of Art
Go Camping, hiking, for a walk in the park, to the beach, rock climbing, have a food or mud fight (Taurus is the sign of Nature)
Light scented candles, brew coffee, cuddle up under a blanket or with a teddy bear, burn incense, wear silk pajamas, listen to amazing music (Taurus is the sign of indulging the senses)

With this Full Moon opposing Mercury, the Sun and Mars in Scorpio we may find ourselves in power struggles with other peoples values, clashes borne of manipulation, insecurity, fear.
It's time to stop dwelling on destruction, but how can we with so many energies in the sign of Scorpio. A Transformation IS imminent in our lives - whether we have to carve out the "bad" bits, or whether we just have to withdraw into the safety of our OWN comfort zones for a time (our own values, our own sense of self-worth and self-esteem) in order for that process to resolve itself.

With each destruction comes the potential for a new birth and the renewal of nutrients and new fertile soil (like the aftermath of a volcano) in which to plant new seeds of comfort.

The Full Moon this month challenges Neptune, the Lord of Illusion, giving us access to answers if we can follow our intuition and not let escapism cloud our hearts - the desire to 'run away', 'opt out' or get further lost in the chaos, is enticing, seductive and very easy.

My advice - find solid grounding, know that emotions are temporary no matter how strong their apparent hold on you right now, and that we all BELONG here, on the Earth, at this time.

It's worth reminding ourselves of this simple fact. Say it to yourself a few times out loud now, and see how it feels:


You are. You deserve it. You're worth it.
And my last gem for you this week:

What you want, also wants you.

To some there will be a renewal (Scorpio) of priority and values (Taurus) as much that is material and financial (Taurus) is lost (Scorpio).

To others, we'll see the true meaning and value of those who leave our lives. Sometimes it takes a departure to truly show us what really matters.

Under this Full moon - things will end, release, resolve, you'll get the answer you've been waiting (whether it's what you want to hear, it's what you need to hear right now), things get thrown out, recycled, we make plans for new things, we allow space for new people, we move on from old habits, we get to clear out chests and clear the air.

Ahhh.....we finally get to wrap some stuff up. Ax my Scorpio friend reminded me just today, "You can't take it when you go". What you can take are the emotional imprints.

who would you be, and how would you be if you had all your possessions taken from you? And all the things you cling to for dear life. It's worth a thought. Who are you when you strip it all away and who/how do you want to be?

In Beauty and Comfort no matter what,

Tension! Saturn opposes Uranus

Feel like you're on a seesaw, being squeezed in a vice and then being stretched beyond your limits? Welcome to the current theme: restrictive Saturn faces off against free-spirited Uranus for a true series of personal and collective rebellions, revolutions, rule-reversals and the overthrowing of tyrants and the bullying of those speaking out for freedom and equal rights.

Bam! the aspect hit on Election Day here in the States. People polarized heavily between two energies "Change Change Change" (Uranus to the T) or Stability, Preservation and Old Values (Saturn is all about controlling change).

Prop 8 here in California, bans same-sex marriage, barring a huge portion of the state from expressing their love in a legal and binding union. Saturn (the rule-maker) thumbed its nose at those seeking the freedom of equal rights (Uranus). The opposition was expressed by a major series of rallies and Uranus-outrage against the System (Saturn). This is sure to be the beginning of a long and bitter fight between those who want things to stay the same (Saturn) and those who want true freedom via change (Uranus).

Souls born at this time, of course, will be imprinted with this vibration of push-pull, but how does it play out for all of us personally, you ask?

We want to break free yet how can we ditch it all and quit when we'd lose our security? We feel a need to fight those who rebel against us, who provoke us with their wily ways. We find our work needs to change and our career focus needs fresh air. We start wondering if our friends are keeping us stuck or if we're just expecting too much. We fear that the things we've established will no longer prove stable (the biggie!)
In relationships, one wants to run free whilst the other wants to work on it. Saturn loves work, Uranus loves to roam wild and free. Both sides are pitted against each other.
In financial matters, we risk stagnating and investing in old ideas, or turning the other way and throwing everything into sudden schemes and ideas that may sound good in theory but have no real backing.

In SOME area of your life (detailed by the houses Saturn and Uranus are hashing it out in) is some dispute or conflict between two opposing viewpoints or energies. You can't win when you take sides. And you can't expect others to conform to your viewpoint.

So it may be lonely, but we have to ride this one out - by sitting on the fence if need be, or bouncing on both sides and expecting a bumpy ride.

Change is here - no matter who is elected President. Whoever is in office in the US, will be a big player in the breaking down further of the system and its codes of conduct that never HAVE been for the Uranus people it claims to represent (the US Moon representing the public, is in Aquarius, ruled by Uranus).

We live in major times of unrest, but true change is never easy. Painful are the throes of birthing ourselves into a freer life. But with limitation comes liberation - we need rules to keep something in place.

See your life like this right now - a deadline or ultimatum may be thrust upon you, but it now gives you something to work with. A Timeline or a Plan. Whatever is happening is showing you were you NEED more structure or need to chill the hell out and where you NEED to breathe easier OR stop pushing against things.

Balance. It may be difficult since we're still in Scorpio Season, but it's coming. Not yet though. I'll let you know when the tides change but right now, right here, today we're in the most intense time, when the pendulum swings sharply, when we're booted off the seesaw, when what we held to so dearly suddenly has other plans. Are we free? Are we stuck? Really?

If it gets hard to breathe, you know where to find me.

In every great conflict and opposition lies the seeds of resolution. If you fight, if you resist, you fuel and feed the fires of pain. If you allow, and continue moving on a path that feels right to you, you can't help but change the scenery and thus, open up to new possibilities.

Embrace your life conflicts, they'll lead you to a better place. And that's really what we all want now.
Cracking the whip for your liberation, Neil www.New World Astrology .com

Helping your Healing: Chiron Direct (Oct 25)

Since May 25, Chiron has been moving retrograde, triggering our old patterns, issues, soft-spots and sensitive areas, tol remind us of where we perceive ourselves to be less than whole. it's an illusion of course, but one area where we DO keep ourselves back by not letting ourselves 'heal' from trauma, is located where Chiron is found in our Astrological Birth Chart.

Where is yours?  Look for this symbol above (get your free chart from me at the Free Tools link at the site). 

Today, Chiron moves Direct again, and we get to take all we have learned about our soft-spots and actively do something about it. We get to show ourselves and others just WHERE we have grown up, and grown away from our past stresses, traumas and pain.

Pain stays with us - it should, as it carves channels into our life, like lines on a palm, and helps us to be the compassionate creators we are. We can then help others in the very same areas.

Chiron collectively is in Aquarius, showing us where society is not working as a whole. To be a true humanitarian (human-itarian) is to now focus on how we can move BEYOND our own hurts, and begin showing others the way to doing it to - by being a walking, talking example.

If you hurt, have been hurting - you have a choice now. To walk with it and continue on, and in doing so let it go, as part of your history and not part of your present, or to harbor ill feeling towards yourself and others for it happening. 

One leads to freedom and healing, the other leads to further reflections of the pain, in order that we re-live it until we get bored and then choose the other path of moving on. 

You're already whole. You're already healed. You're fine. 
It's time to allow that...

Your Healing Helper,

P.S My Chiron is conjunct Venus (love, partnership) and South Node (past lives, inherited gifts or traps) so I know all about it, so feel free to ask for help from this end when you need it. Together we can embrace your abilities as a Healer and Teacher within your own Life Story.

Planning an Event? Use Astrology to Launch!

Everything has a Chart.

You can determine the best date to launch a project, get married, go on a date, make a presentation and more.

Timing is everything.

We can use Astrology together to Chart the best times for the specific intention you have in mind, outlining the time-frames that coincide with the themes you'd like to 'get the ball rolling' under.

Each time we "birth" something, we create a Chart for that Moment. And that Chart's Moment, reveals a lot about the life-force, life-line and potentials of the entire endeavor.

You can find out more, or order an Event Planning Reading here.

I've helped numerous couples choose the best dates for their relationship according to what energies they want to bring into their union (exciting, action-packed partnerships, or steady, structured ones, peaceful home-oriented or gypsy-traveling themes, the choices are limitless).

So whether it's a business plan, a personal project or secret hope or wish, we can set it off and give it a great start - the rest of course is up to you, and how you navigate the unfolding cycles.

Together we can map out the cycles of your Launch Date down the line.

Your Celestial Success-Stoker,

Freeing ourselves:: Sun in Scorpio, Venus in Sagittarius

Two bulletins for you: we just entered Scorpio Season today (the Sun now shines in the sign of Scorpio for an entire month) (happy Birthday Scorpios, be sure to check out the Scorpio links) bringing our awareness to those places where we need a deep transformation and to recycle old energies in preparation for something fresh and new. Clear up your space and your life, by letting go of stuff you've accumulated - feelings and things. 

We go within, become a little more withdrawn, and "power-up" for winter, by storing energy, taking out the trash, and protecting what we have so that it can strengthen and grow - and the parts of our lives that no longer work, we get to heal, or cast aside. All or nothing.

Venus just moved into Sagittarius recently also - and the themes within our relationships switch gears. No longer are we swimming in such deep, dark, and potentially dangerous waters (for our egos anyway that want anything but to sink) as Venus was in Scorpio (hands up how many of us have touched the depths and soared to the heights lately, in relationships?)...but now in Sagittarius relationships become:

* more an adventure as we see Life as a Journey and our partner as a Traveling Companion
* road trips, quests for a new goal, to find the truth or just to see the sights
* all about Honesty - sharing our real feelings and not worrying about the consequences
* more space-oriented - we're good together, but we're equally good doing our own thing
* about sharing information, learning and growing together as we both play Teacher & Student
* changeable - nothing is set in stone, we can try and do anything. It's all about risk-taking.

Whoever you're with, or want to be with, keep it fun, keep it light, and don't be afraid of a little straight-to-the-bull's-eye honesty. We can all handle it now. Enjoy learning - take someone to a class or bookstore, read up on your Astrological Compatibility (the new Cosmic Couple Report has already begun helping many couples to understand their soul contracts). Listen to your free audio clips on your signs. See what the other needs and wants.

Remember, that space is just as important in any connection. So is Adventure. If you've stopped learning, discovering and growing together, you'll part so that these 3 key things continue.

hit the horizon and take someone special along, even if it's just yourself! And since we're now in Scorpio Season, don't be afraid to linger in the shadows, face a fear and bring it back into the Light of awareness, so you regain your power.  Venturing into your Soul's Past (forgiving past pain and moving on is essential now - the new Karmic Insight and Past Life Report Package can aid you in untangling from stuff that's happened to you on your Soul's Journey).

Your Astral Adventurer,

My Poetry

For those of you interested, I added more poetry my other Blog, Poem From a Pisces.
Inspired by recent events, memories, thoughts, circumstances, people and places that all come together in my colorful mind, and spill out onto the paper in the stream of consciousness you'll find there.

I believe poetry is simply writing from the heart.

So you'll find a piece of my own there, and I hope it touches yours.
(I'm sure in such a relationship-oriented "theme" right now that we're all living under, everyone will relate in their own way). More to come as always...

Your Poetically-Partial Pisces,

Glasses or contact wearers: Using Pinholes Glasses instead!

Just a personal note for those of you who use contact lenses or prescription glasses.

As you may already know, I'm a firm believer in giving more 'natural' methods a shot.
I have been regularly getting more sun for my eyes, using some of the Bates method (you can research this) relaxing my vision, palming etc. And spending more time where I can without my contact lenses.

I currently have a pair of PINHOLE GLASSES which work really well. They immediately improve your vision, whether near of farsighted. I can now read the computer screen and far away without contacts. As well as the TV. it works the same in reverse. No prescription needed.

Pretty great stuff - as they allow you to wean yourself off your glasses and continually stronger prescriptions. Computer users: they soothe your eyes with prolonger computer use. Yay!

Give them a shot, you should be able to find a pair online for around $20 or less or at your local health store. They can help you to relax your eyes, strengthen those muscles again (the ones weakened by continued crutches like glasses or contacts) and see if you notice improvement also.
Armed with these and some regular eye exercises, it's worth the minor effort (15 mins a day!).

Just thought I'd pass it along to those who may want to try this approach to healing their eyes naturally. (plus its a major money saver).

New! Cosmic Couple Relationship Report

Available October 2008!

I'm excited to now offer the Cosmic Couple Astrology Report, one you won't find anywhere else.

If you're in a relationship, contract, relationship, union or partnership with someone, anyone, this Report is for you. Read on!

Congratulations on taking one of the most important Journeys of your Life: Opening up to intimacy, and all that it offers, closeness, a shared connection. May this Friendship, Relationship or Partnership bring you close together and ultimately, to a greater sense of intimacy with your own Spirit.

Linda Goodman saw Synastry as a very exciting tool in helping others to understand their relationships. If you have what she termed 'Soul-mate' connections, these too shall be highlighted, using some of Linda's own ideas and themes that she passed on to us. Soul-mates come in different guises, not just the usual romantic ones we see in movies. Look around you, it's very likely that someone in your life right now, is someone you have shared countless lives with before. And perhaps, there is still friction between you. Strong connections (for good or bad) are hard to break. Magnetic attraction is powerful.

I have compiled this Report personally, these aspects were the ones discovered for You and the special person you requested a compatibility Report with. Linda herself had a hand in this, with her special thoughts and wishes too, that I hope you enjoy. Relationships are never 50-50. They involve two people living 100% as themselves, but allowing for a new and third energy, a bridge between worlds as it were, when the two unite.

Enjoy this new Report, I recently ran one for me and a special 'other' and was blown away by things we'd personally chatted about only weeks ago. I love being surprised, even 15+ years into my Astrological Adventures. I hope you are too!

Get yours here...


It's really about YOU: Aries Full Moon (Oct 15)

For the next two weeks it's all about You. And should be. The Aries Full Moon period affords us a chance to work out if WE are fulfilled, if we look how we want to look, if we're on track with ourselves, if we're acting as we want to. If the vision we have of ourselves, really what we're seeing playing out in our individual lives?


The Full Moon now ands in the sign of Aries - war, aggression, assertiveness, action, initiation, inspiring us to pioneer old ground or to walk away from old lives and creating new beginnings out of the tattered remains of yesterdays soul-cleansing fires.

As the first sign of the zodiac wheel, Aries is the starter, the Fire Starter I guess you could say (since that's its element) but under a Full Moon things reach a completion, a culmination and we receive word from the Universe in the form of a progress report.

Full Moons remind us to 'let go' in areas where we're overdoing, overstriving and otherwise resisting the flow of cosmic energy in our lives. A new beginning is hard, when we're caught up in yesterday's shadows. So this week we look both forward (Aries) and backwards (Full Moon) separating old paths with new trails yet to be blazed.

We can help this along by following a few of these suggestions, tailor made for this particular lunar phase this week:

Work on Anger Management Issues - should anger ever BE managed? If not - all hell can break loose, or we end up in all-out war. But repressing it does us no good. Work out a way to meet your needs head-on and confront obstacles with courage, confidence and total honesty.

Let go of the need to be first - people push, people shove, they cut you off on roads and they are impatient and self-centered. This weekend, let them be. Save yourself a headache!

Give up selfishness - sometimes your needs can't be met by anyone else but you. That's life so accept it.

Go kickboxing, play squash/tennis - anything that's high energy and aggressive or fast.
Pump Iron - Aries loves raw energy and a show of macho. Push your limits just know when to quit.

Chill out - is it worth getting so heated over?

Burn something - in a safe environment, but try a Full Moon Fire Ritual - on Friday, burn things that symbolize what you're trying to move away from or let go of. Works wonders.

Quit banging your head against a brick wall. Find another way.

DO something - Aries Full Moons ask for energy and drive, committed to achieving a task. Knock down a wall, build something, go for a jog, work out, wrestle, buy a punchbag, scream, sing a rock song at karaoke, start 18 new projects and alternate between them all.

Burn off calories, then you won't be so easy to trigger. A relaxed body/mind is harder to agitate!

Cut hair, do face treatments - Full Moons are good times to cut hair (to grow back slower). Aries relates to the Head so prune crazy hair, give yourself a facial. Legend has it that cutting hair can release stagnant energy some cultures say resided in hair. Look back and notice your haircuts after a breakup, or breakdown? It released old energy. perhaps it's time for another makeover?!

In short - stop thinking, feeling and analyzing and wondering. Just Do It!

Full Moons pull liquids on the planet and within our bodies, making us more emotional and touchy. It'd be easy to get into a fight under Aries energy this week but it's a waste of good raw energy. Remember energy is directed where our conscious will is focused. Save it or squander it, the choice is ours.

Raw energy is sexy - that's why Mars, the ruling planet associated with Aries is about Drive and Desire. Conquering something becomes a theme this weekend - we NEED a fight, we NEED a challenge, we NEED something to win over, we NEED something to put ourselves against. Moons show emotional needs. Aries energy is driven and goal oriented and won't be denied!

We all turn into Stone Age men and women - back in the primal days of the Universal Fire. Separating ourselves out from the fold, showing how brave we are. These days, fights are taken to sports arenas or worse, into the fields of cities, town and villages, or into the home and family, the originator of all future 'fight-plans' and 'fight patterns'.

Find your 'beef', uncover the roots of your anger and dispute, and resolve to resolve it by the only means possible - facing it. What you do when you confront it is up to you but in the handling the issue, lies the possible resolution.

Remember, inactivity is also an action. Anger has a time and a place - and we shouldn't shy from it. It's not un-spiritual to get mad, says the Aries Full Moon. It's emotional and human. But it is raw untapped and untamed power from within that bubbles out in such moments, a spark from a much greater fire. A passionate seething cauldron of emotional power we can use to further our lives and create something greater, from the friction caused by seeing something that reflects less than we could be. That after all, is the basis of every fight - both within and without - seeing ourselves or another, being less than we (or they, in our perception) could be.

Relationship-wise, it's a time to balance what we want with what others need and desire. It's a see-saw this next two weeks. But remember, if you're not happy, no one else can be, because you're a major part of every contract, union, partnership, relationship, friendship. And you have a right to be feeling well and good.

Start with YOU, then see what changes once you change
your own point of view.

REPOST: Things get Shady: Mars enters Scorpio (Oct 3/4)

How about a re-trograde re-post? (since it seems the layout was unreadable!)> Here you all go:

Feel the season shift?

The cycles of soul experience have moved into darker territory. With the onset of Halloween, and the decay of Nature, we enter a down cycle where things wrap up, crumble, fall, ready to become rich fertile nutrients to feed new future hopes and dreams. What goes up, must come down. What is born, must die. And what dies, continues on, like the seeds and leaves that fall from trees now, to feed the earth and the seeds that will emerge by the Aries Springtime.

How does this affect you and I?

Things get shady. Literally. The days darken. Our moods darken. We enter the Underworld - either with a brush with "Death" (literal or symbolic) or we wind up visiting some personal "Hades" in order the transform ourselves and move beyond our fears and inhibitions. Shadows grow around us, reminding us of our inherent human fragility, 'thin-skin' and the need for some form of withdrawal and protection.

Halloween comes, but before then, we get to strip away our mask. Some of us may be ready to "kill off" parts of ourselves and our lives. A relationship that no longer serves both people as individuals, a job that confines creativity, a city that no longer feels like home. Something will go, and Mars (our energetic focal point) in Scorpio (destroy to rebuild and rebirth) will aid in our quest to recycle, regrow, let go and prepare for a new life.

Whatever it is that's manifesting for you now - we face our Dark Sides, our 'criminal content' (internally) and society's more taboo aspects (externally). Our Shadow - the part of us we deny being (hateful, jealous, clingy, selfish etc) rises up for one more reminder that we ARE these things, or rather that we SOMETIMES can express these things, but that we are not our emotions, and we cannot be defined by even behavior or feeling. To be whole, we need to accept all levels of ourselves and our potential. Within us all lies the biggest illusion of all - the 'monster' of love-less lack.

Venture within. Go down to the depths. Crack the code. Use pain to find the Light again. Move from what ails you to what enables you to glow brighter. Use the Darkness to rest and realign yourself with your quiet inner voice. Accept darker moods. Investigate. Recuperate. Recycle. Reinvent.

And if in doubt, as always during a Scorpio Passage, Let It Go (for now)....

Your Darker Depths Driver, Neil
