Discovery Day in Santa Fe: La Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site

When I first moved to Santa Fe in the eighties, I took frequent road trips to check out New Mexico and its ancientness. Somehow, I never came across a petroglyph site just a few miles south of Santa Fe, right off Airport Road, that boasts hundreds of petroglyphs in the basalt cliffs, especially of kokopellis and birds.

La Cieneguilla Petroglyph site is 3.5 miles south of 599, marked by a sign and a big parking lot. It’s a steep but short climb and the views are fantastic – 360 degrees! I’ve seen very little of the site so far, but came across a huge cave with a blackened roof from many fires, and a snake petroglyph on the wall outside. Very nice piece of real estate with views overlooking valleys and mountains.

This Week’s Earth Signs’ Mystery Revealed

An Earth sign wrote to me today, wondering about the seeming paradox of the weekly horoscope’s message for Earth signs in particular, and its contrast with the general forecast for the week. Other Earth signs might want to hear the answer:

“You asked a good question!

I noticed too that this week’s earth signs’ message was incongruent with the general forecast, commented about it to my earth sign friends at coffee. This message would also be for anyone with a heavy dose of planets in earth signs, or moon and rising both in earth.

The diverse-seeming directions are because the beginning messages for everybody cover much longer time spans than a week: the length of Mercury and Jupiter retrograde, and then the whole year. There’s a Neptune action (not named) that makes it a time to be careful with money and deals.

However, according to moi, earth signs get lucky about something this week, or get some specific details about a future positive development Please let me know if it doesn’t make sense in hindsight.

The same seeming contradictions are probably in the many different kinds of 2016 messages for the fire, water, air and earth signs in the January newsletter. That’s because each one, done at a different time, covers different lengths of time, or is commenting on a different dimension of the person.

Today’s Sun and Wind in Southern California

It’s close to the New Year and I went out for a brief omen-gathering walk in California this morning, my big January newsletter on my mind. Yesterday I created a new kind of daily message for the radio, and I also wanted to see if I got one for today. I was encouraged by the Twitter feedback I got when I posted it.

The street outside looked like a war zone! It was littered with pieces of palm trees, the winds were blowing so fiercely, and right in the middle of traffic, a basketball hoop and stand were laid out – the wind must have upended it and thrown it there. I’ve never seen winds like this in Los Angeles.

Here’s today’s message! “Take some shade, get some rest–it’s not all the time you do your best. First listen to your rhythm so you’re up for the test!

Psychic Predictions, Numerology, and Horoscopes for 2016

Individually Happy in 2016

Individually Happy in 2016

(December 18, 2015) I just caught President Obama talking about the U.S. strategy to deal with terrorism and especially, ISIS. His take on what to expect is different than what my Speaking Stones said the other day, so I thought I’d post this article now, before more time goes by and events unfold. (This stone cast for 2016 was done November 25th, 2015. )

December 19th: Unlike every single psychic on the internet, all agreeing Hillary will be the next President,  I think the tenor of the times fueled by extreme inequality and growing poverty,  could manifest in the more revolutionary move of picking Bernie Sanders.  The collective consciousness does not seem to have, at least yet, picked Hillary.

Speaking Stones for 2016: A lot of new things happen, and people come up with radically new solutions for long-standing problems.   There is much more cutting away and pivoting away from the past than before.

In terms of the world all pulling together, the light of understanding is absent; there is no common goal of a lighter world. The fairly new and separatist organizations, like Isis, take root. Their communication systems get tight and together and work very well. Things can spread: Nobody needs to be anywhere anymore. The internet becomes much more of a global tool and weapon.

USA and countries fighting terrorism: We don’t seem to have a cohesive, creative response to what is happening. Past solutions don’t work. The targets of terrorism carried out by Isis and others, are not equipped to coordinate on all kinds of levels: between countries, departments, differing agendas, etc. They do not have the right strong tool.

Teamwork and harmony work wonders in 2016. It can grow terrorism, but positive grass roots movements can also get very far through improved communication and ways of connecting with others. No matter who is in the White House, U.S. grass roots movements coming from the people grow in strength.

Fear-driven pathological responses to life are acted out even more in 2016. It’s  as if a tacit, wordless agreement takes place on the level of the collective unconscious,  freeing people are to indulge in their baser, fear-driven instincts.

(I also did other divinations in the November 25th session:  a numerology reading for 2016, and clairvoyant readings for the fire, water, air and earth signs. )

Numerology 2016: 2016 is a nine year, the magic number that when you any number to it, e.g. 5 plus 9, it will always reduce down to the original number: 5.  Metaphorically speaking re 2016 as a 9 year teaches that it may look like things are up to others, but they are always up to us. It’s the actions you take and the work you put into something that count.

Another magic quality is that whatever number you multiply 9 by, the result will reduce back to 9. (9×5 is 45, 4 plus 5 is 9.) Multiplying implies increase (success), and addition implies relationship (learning experiences). The multiplying magic of a 9 year suggests fruition, completion, and its presence in 2016 says that hard work and excellence pays off this year.

What we do with our time and how committed we are can lead to magic in a 9 year. Out in the world we will see magic tricks on display,  great schemes that are both dark and light – as 9 produces sophisticated plans and resource networks.

We will see magic in our own lives if we take responsibility for whatever is happening in it, and assume that the big determinant in our lives is what we do and show up for, not lucky breaks or privilege of position. 2016 can mete out harsh fates where things aren’t fair. Re the challenge of personal transformation: the wisdom of 9 urges us to stay the course on our personal journey towards happiness, because the potential is high for the next phase to be a more complete and magnetic and inspired version of ourselves.

For the Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: ):  You will gain the greatest happiness and growth if you practice gives you an alternative to thinking; i.e. preoccupied with whatever happened in the past or might in the future. That’s because 2016 can be the most wildly creative year, and you wouldn’t want to miss it worrying or lost in self-reflection. A life-changing magical act can be to re-order your life so that you are practicing and doing in some way what truly makes you happy.  The spirits say: “It requires all of you. Embrace, then, your creative spontaneous self…give it the floor – and then give it some more! Then you can know Heaven on Earth.”

For the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: You can experience separation between you and people in your life because of natural developments and personal growth. The emerging truth will feel like the lighter path. A paradigm shift is in the offing, an adjustment that serves you well for years to come.

For the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: 2016 is a year of inner gains: your greater emotional and psychological strength allows you to move on.  Now you more easily accept things and view the truth as helping you. Nothing is more important than this new awareness as its reward is greater peace of mind.

For the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: Basically, 2016 is a year of increase, with positive events occurring on both inner and outer levels.  It feels to you like going further and higher than you’ve ever gone before.  You gain a new sense of stability for many reasons; ultimately lightening your nature so a much more flexible, sensitive, porous you gets ready for new instructions…arriving in 2019. Now begins the journey…you might be wondering what you’re planning for. All you can know is what feels right . You’re planning for a future that at this point is a series of desires, longings, and beckonings.  Follow your heart and on every plane, you’ll like the results.

Also, here is next week’s horoscope! The podcast posts Monday mornings at , and on my website. It’s  also broadcast Monday mornings at 10 am on KTAO Solar 101.9. More info about the month and this time period is in the December newsletter.

December 21st-27th: Monday is the Winter Solstice and today’s stars set the tone for the whole season, and what they say is: “Go for the new and what makes you smile.” Whatever revolutionary thing you’ve been thinking about and wanting to bring into your life for a long time, now has a greater chance to materialize. The new life you create gets easier because you’re more willing to participate in it.  So go for it, the new, and what brings a smile to your heart.”

The end of the week kicks off an explosion of energy after the Christmas full moon and Uranus going direct. We want to REFORM. Our big urge is to reform our Self or our environment, and this can take you from being undirected and uninspired to knowing what you want. Let the good times roll.

For the Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: Red Alert: you could have your own little Mercury retrograde going on: so keep track of your belongings, be careful with travel, and don’t overeat. Get some work done because you can take practical steps this week to increase your income and money-making ability.

For the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: This is not a good week to make sudden moves; your current situation might be better than you realize. You  could be surprised this week about how expectations work out, to the upside! Concern about how things are organized may be a false worry.

For the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: Surprises are on the menu and a get together or some partnership may not happen as planned. A good time to have a plan B! Looking ahead, there’s a much more substantial cycle coming up.

For the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: This week and winter you make amends with the past, you welcome the future, and by doing so, you create stability! You are rightly optimistic and looking forward and willingly accept the new role of seeker. All is well.

Ten Reasons and More to Get to Know Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders being truthful and honest is bringing some great journalism to the pubic, with articles that reveal the real state of communities  and American families. They also give a Sanders’ presidency solutions to poverty, terrorism, climate change, welfare, and human rights.

People are beginning to compile and post lists of what Bernie Sanders has done in the past. Apparently, his constituencies could always trust elected official Sanders to tell the truth, and do the compassionate, caring thing for the people he served. I hope you check into this refreshingly wise and kind Presidential candidate. And honest as the day is long, proven by 40 years in the public eye.

On the link between climate change and terrorism:
