Note: Eric Teissedre is the best metaphysical teacher, medium, and all around expert divinator and clairvoyant I’ve ever come across. Over the years many people have contacted me, trying to find him as his name has appeared on my website. No one ever forgets Eric but he’s not been easy to get ahold of for decades. I’m so glad he’s decided to write and I’ll post whatever he sends me on this blog. If you would like to reach Eric or have questions about his services, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
First, I would like to thank Elissa Heyman for providing me with some space for this article.
In doing astrology for a number of years, I have come to some realizations and would like to offer these as inspirations.
There is the question: are we fated or do we have free will? I am of the belief we have free will and yet this acts within certain boundaries of any given time. I have seen people overcome numerous negative aspects that could have normally predicted a negative outcome. Usually these are people of strong spiritual conviction who see their source as something above the planets. Astrology is a language of the heavens. It speaks for the temple of God, the universe. There are so many different systems of astrology, especially house division, that you wonder how astrologers of such diversity can read a chart. Some are using totally different zodiac signs, some use tropical, some use sidereal. I was always taught that whatever system you choose, stick to the rules of that system. If this is true, then there is a quantum going on with space. It is as if space can read your mind, knows what system of astrology you are using, and offers you guidance through that system. Food for thought, in that we are not always being dictated to in terms of what our fate has to be. Perhaps the universe is offering some suggestions. With that said, I look at the planets as they are now. We have passed through a time where many planets are in Aquarius, including the north node. Nodes are pretty intense. The sky suggests an investment into humanity. Let’s make the human being the subject of our investment and not the banks and bankers. I am making these statements, realizing these planets have occurred with and around the inauguration and can predict some of the thinking of the new administration. Invest in people, invest in education, and invest in the computer as a tool to reach more people with education. There is quite possibly a return of the dot com, without the madness of the late 90s. It is a business that has to make more sense. Even though Aquarius is a human sign, and would show some of these things, it is also the second house of the 10th, meaning money connected to the government, so there will be a re-thinking of a financial free-for-all and empowering banks with absolute rights. They have to be accountable to someone, the old checks and balances that this country is famous for. Speaking of checks and balances, there are issues with the courts. They seem to be making more and more decisions separate from public consent. We are in a Jupiter-Saturn opposition. I take liberties with an extremely wide orb in that it represents a larger amount of time. I wouldn’t be so liberal in viewing a natal chart, but the public is different than a natal chart. Saturn and Jupiter, being on the opposite side, suggest debate and duality from extremes, those Republicans and Democrats at war again. Interestingly enough, in numerology, we are in a two year. Add up the numbers 2009 and they reduce to a two, a number of relationships. There are questions about relationships, set before the public at this time. I am optimistic about the times. I believe our mind affects things greatly. Astrologers can point out this administration started with mercury retrograde. This usually shows trouble, difficulty in communication. I don’t think it matters. Image is everything. We have an administration that is very image-conscious. Perhaps they will have a power of uniting us, idealistically, which will affect economy and such.
I grew up learning that every twenty years, a president would die in office because of a Jupiter Saturn aspect. In the past few years, this has lessened and with the last administration, was not true at all. Back to the quantum theory, the more we are aware of an aspect, it seems we can affect it with intention. We have people in office who pray, whether you are in agreement with their politics or not. We can wonder about the power of prayer. I believe it affects things greatly. In conclusion, look to the stars for guidance. My forte these days is what I call consultation astrology. It is an astrology that gives boundaries to the intuition. It has arrived in the observation of aspects at the time a person has a reading, especially the ascendant. It is amazing the synchronicities that can occur, but again, it does not bind the individual to a fated outcome. That is our job, to match minds, to work the spiritual power and to affect our so-called fate.
Blessings to all,
