This morning in London a new royal baby was born. She is so new that we don't even have a photo of her yet, much less a name. I predict she will be a chubby cheeked little princess, and will look a lot like her brother George, as she has Cancer as her rising sign, which often gives that round face with full cheeks. This child will be extremely close to her brother. They have compatible moons, and George presents a Jupiter conjunction with his Jupiter (planet of good fortune) on her Cancer rising sign. The two of them are going to be best friends for life. There should be little, if any, sibling rivalry. Little Georgie will simply adore his baby sister. This little girl will have a beautifully happy childhood. Her biggest [...]
A client recently asked my opinion about the current retrograde movement of Pluto, which will be there until September 25, 2015. Whenever a planet appears to be going in reverse (even though it is not) it just means that this planet's energies get more intense. Pluto is all about digging for the truth. Pluto wants us to transform. These are times to get rid of the outworn, outdated, and obsolete things in our lives. Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth. There is nothing easy about Pluto, so when it is retrograde it means hunkering in for some deep occurrences that will possibly make your life feel topsy turvy. But remember, in the end, just like the caterpillar that thinks it is dying, there is always a butterfly that appears.
One of my goals with astrology, is to make it easier to understand. My background as a children’s book author and illustrator, has taught me how to keep things simple and entertaining. I want to distill the wisdom of astrology into pieces that are digestable. Over the years, many of my clients have expressed an interest in taking my beginner’s class in astrology. Now, for the first time, you can watch me teach live (no matter where you live) or listen to the class at your leisure. This online webinar on astrology 101 starts this April. I will be teaching with the Santa Fe based astrologer, Michael Bartlett. We met at an astrology conference hosted by the world famous astrologer, Alan Oken. In this webinar, you will learn about the different zodiac signs, the planets, [...]
The best way to find a good astrologer is to get recommendations from a friend. Astrology is all about the interpretation. You could go to 50 different astrologers and they would all have a different “take” on your chart. It is a lot like reading music. Fifty musicians would all have their own style of playing the same music. A good astrologer will never predict your future. However, they call tell you the upcoming “weather” patterns. For certain, astrologers can see when storms are approaching, or when there will be long periods of sunshine. The client just needs to be prepared, but it doesn’t mean anything bad or good will necessarily happen. Certainly during the storms, things are not as easy. And during the sunny days we should “make hay while the sun shines”. Stay [...]
I just finished a reading for a client who had a significant astrological aspect indicating trauma. As is often the case, the person said that nothing really bad had happened to them….that she could remember! Another clue that there was trauma, was that she could not remember anything before the fifth grade. The chart always tells the true story. I have to be patient, and wait for the client to eventually reveal the memories. What happens is that many people tend to bury the painful memories in order to survive. Just as my client was preparing to leave, she remembered a trauma. It was significant. Sometimes as astrologers we just have to be patient, and allow the thoughts to percolate. The beauty of astrology is that the chart will show things that a psychotherapist could [...]
