Overall Psychic Impression: (received new moon in Libra, October 15): “Very turbulent times ahead in November. November’s like the 11th hour in peoples’ lives, the 11th hour that brings tremendous change. It’s as if the universe says, ‘OK, let ‘er rip’, and great change manifests.”
Feeling ambitious? Many new things are tried in Determined November. It’s an exciting time to be a pioneer, an entrepreneur, or a new business owner. Try hard!!
Inner Adventures: Most significantly for each and every individual, people can forge a new and healthier relationship with their own self, leading to profound changes from the inside out. This is a momentous month whether the changes are inside your own head, or manifest in the new ways you interact with others/
11-11: On November 11, Neptune goes direct, giving people a new dream about their lives. This can be a tricky time, though. Some people will feel more spiritually connected, but if they are people who go to extremes and have escapist tendencies, they can really indulge. Look at the way you naturally go right around the 1st, and if you’re starting to go off the tracks, know you have to be extra vigilant to bring balance to your life this month.
New Dreams: When Neptune goes direct, it not only reveals the truth, catalyzing the release of what’s unrealistic and outmoded, it also brings a new vision for ones’ life. New dreams of what’s possible emerge. Two days later on the 13th, there’s a new moon in Scorpio. Now one gets a glimpse of what’s on the other side of recent changes. People tend to set their path now: if they’re going to accomplish something, now they firmly set their sights on it.
The Thanksgiving Holiday has a fun and lively energy, with lots of coming and going and news to talk about. Bonds will strengthen and romance can spring up.
November’s full moon in Gemini on the 28th is a lunar eclipse..at the fork in the road, go towards the light! I got a bad feeling about the Middle East in November, perhaps then: confusion, breakdowns, and outbreaks of violence.
Beware the Setback: If you have any sort of setback, with your diet or state of mind, the worst part will be if you go all in and let things spin out of control. Take a time out, take the pressure off yourself; most importantly, lower your expectations of what you’re supposed to accomplish. Make a balanced approach to life, not a specific goal, your priority.
In the middle of posting my September newsletter, I noticed that whatever posting job I did of the August newsletter, didn’t do the trick! Here is the omitted August news:
Spiritual lessons and messages come in a variety of languages and from many different sources. My big lessons always seem to involve a lot of adrenalin coursing through my system. Every once in awhile, I get into some kind of jam in an out-of-the-way place. Hopped up on fear and exhiliration, it’s often when I learn something important, and fast. Yesterday, I got a little lesson in the value of staying calm from a rattlesnake.
It was the morning after an unplanned-for late-night birthday surprise starring Mercury retrograde and my Acura, which had to be towed. The tow truck driver let me off at a nearby Motel 6 in Bernalillo, NM. Luckily, the RailRunner train up to Santa Fe was just across the street.
Arriving a few minutes early to the train station, I walked a little ways down the RailRunner track–and there was a real roadrunner, running in front of me into the desert! I plopped down to write my very late newsletter, looked to my right, and there was a big rattlesnake! Don’t just sit down in a desert without looking around.
The rattler had been slithering across the arroyo, his long body a gorgeous pattern of beige, tawny and taupe that blended right in with the ground. We were so close his strike could reach me!
I instinctively calmed my guts down after the first surprised glance, seeing he froze immediately when I spied him. I just wanted him to keep moving across my field of vision and into the hills.
I conjured up a calm positivity again–it helped a little bit (but not that much!) that the snake was so beautiful, and that rattlers have been an omen for me of new knowledge and creative gifts.
Very slowly, stopping and starting, the big snake moved forward after a few moments of relaxation issued from my stomach. Then would stop moving the split second I got gripped with fear. Finally he undulated out of range, and I could get up!
More often than not lately, something weird happens to me when I go to write my newsletter, but out of the experience comes a sign of the times, something relevant to the month’s or year’s energies and nature. My take-away was that in encountering power and opportunity in this volatile time, staying relaxed and peaceful made things flow and go forward; getting uptight and acting out of fear makes it much more likely to be strikingly opposed.
Have a wonderful month and stay cool!
P.S. My break is over and I’m ready to book more private psychic counseling and spiritual healing appointments, in person or by phone. Email me at email@example.com, or call 505-982-3294.
Psychic Messages and Astrology for August 2012
Two Full Moons: The month begins on a full moon in Aquarius, and ends on a full (blue) moon in Pisces. In between, the stars suggest people can and will figure out alot, including how to attract new audiences. Do what’s important now, follow the right routine for success now in these fast-moving times. Don’t think you’ll have time to do it later, some opportunities never come around again. Opportunity hangs around like smoke, just for awhile.
Sun in Leo: It’s natural to want to have your way, to put a lot of energy into things and make sure they get done…it’s a kick-ass month. If you have no qualms about what you’re going after so aggressively–if you feel it’s right and right for you–go for it in this vibrant, dynamic atmosphere of opportunity–the power to create is as strong as the sun beating down.
Speaking of Leo, it can be a really different year for Leos, with the biggest changes in their worklife, beginning half-way through their birthday year.
For all signs: Where success lies for many now is in the unknown…be willing to try the untried and leave behind the familiar. It’s not important to hold to your old identity, only that you are acting on your fulfillment now.
It’s a great time to network and fan the flames of creativity with daring. Go with your forward-thinking ideas. Carry on into the summer nights of 2012!
Mercury is still retrograde the first eight days of August, emphasizing the right timing of continuing to “Get Stuff Done” that will clear your plate and simplify your life. It’s when to re-prioritize your life according to what you are finding important now.
Deep Stuff Can Surface: You’re likely to attract experiences that give you a way to release the past and move forward, even if it looks like you’re re-visiting your old self. Some kind of strange circumstance can develop and erupt that triggers your emotions. Dealing with it can release you from its clutches.
What matters most about what you go through this month, is how things can turn around. Don’t think you can’t change! Notice how you have changed!
Our Unstable World: It’s as if some mainstay to our structure snaps…there’s a fundemental breakdown beginning, probably with the credit and monetary system, allowing for greater change which manifests as soon as September.
August 2012 Personal and Spiritual Guidance (first published at the Examiner July 29, 2012)
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): You continue to journey towards new expressions and unfoldments of your own power, and something ignites…something that is not so familiar–there are new resources becoming evident. This happens once you make a move into new circles or gain privy to new worlds. Have faith the first third of the month, then you’ll more likely see what’s fulfilling and successful.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): More than one opportunity is being considered and they all make you happy! You get to have fun experiences that represent an entree into new circles–the world rejoices in you and you are invited to participate! This month’s activities lead to greater developments. Choose to pursue the bigger dreams, they have the best chance.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You’re feeling a lot better about your position in life, and have peace of mind that recent accomplishments will further you…you’re moving up! There will soon be a sense of triumph in September if there isn’t yet..for some it may have already come. You’re due for a good turn, and it’s best to dream big. Be willing to make sacrifices for what you want, understanding: “...in the interest of X, I must do Y.”
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): True riches: you’re happier now, you’re grinning again, you’ve learned alot about what you do hold, and what to hold, dear. Let a renewed enthusiasm for life pour out in all you do. There’s no need to participate in deals or activity you don’t feel like doing or no longer believe in. You’re looking for just the right venue..trust your heart about what to put your energy into. The best thing to do must be felt, not reasoned.
People are generally apprehensive about retrograde planets as they are associated with various snafus. But retrogrades can also be helpful, impelling us to get things into better shape and order. This is an update to the July 2012 newsletter, to share how upcoming planetary activity boosts our dreams and schemes:
There are a few personal improvements to expect during this Mercury retrograde in Leo period, July 14-August 8. You’ll be upgrading your self-image and how you treat your own self. This tendency manifests in finding better ways to suit yourself, and do things in harmony with your true nature.
If there’s something you’re trying to get off the ground, you’ll be helped by this week’s cluster of celestial catalysts (July 13-14 Uranus goes retrograde and Mercury goes retrograde, followed immediately by Moon conjunct Jupiter). These planetary dynamics can make it startlingly clear what needs to be done to further your personal vision. In general, a lot of repair work is going on now, so expect delays, but all for a good cause, your new and improved self.
Breakthroughs to greater emotional freedom: This is when new ways to free yourself can present themselves, and you are likely to get better help and on your own, deeper insights. The forces of nature support breaking free into new emotional territory. Finding better ways to communicate will naturally occur.
Preceding Mercury by a day, Uranus goes retrograde on Friday the 13th. It will be bringing into being things that require an extra jolt of energy. Are you almost out the door, or almost committed? Your chances of going all the way are about to increase.
Re relationships, dreams, and schemes: you’ll be shown what does and doesn’t work, and the most successful modus operandi at all times with all relationships is “keep it light.” Here’s a Summer Love Spell with some guidelines about how please yourself and others this Summer:
“Grin ear to ear about whatever’s dear to whomever’s near.
Do not delay your pleasure,
Be full measure.
Relationships flower when you leave out the sour.”
Tuning into the Big Picture: An excitement of mental energy is charging the air of our collective consciousness.A mighty conflagration of ideas is going on all over the planet. It’s an explosive, exciting time for collaborations which will be rife with synchronicities. On an individual level, this can be manifest in people more easily finding partners as well as ways to expand and enlarge their lives. Even pets are running into more interesting situations.
Personal psychic astrology soundbite: The water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) learn to modulate the activity in their life, and that for now it’s better to advance in small ways. The fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) experience their own unfettered energy which bursts forth on its own. The air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) learn better to balance all that is going on in their world. The earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) find that not much from their former life needs to go with them into the future.
Coincidentally, today’s celestial conjunction of the Sun, planet of success, with Jupiter, planet of good fortune, falls on Mother’s Day. All by itself, this conjunction suggests that big, positive developments can emerge now in a person’s life, if they have made a way for them to manifest. (Or a way is made for a person now.)
Whether male or female, young or old, with Jupiter conjunct the Sun on Mother’s Day,
it’s a spectacular time to honor what you want to bring into the world. Have a private party foryour wildest wishes, you’ll work out the problematics later! Commit to your heart’s desires, the stars are on your side!
What kind of omen is it that “the luckiest day of of the year” falls on Mother’s Day? Not much of one, according to my tarot cards. They suggest that when it comes to the way women are treated around the world, equality for women is delayed, the world of power that abuses them is still in play.
In the wind today is an affirmation, though, about the hidden power that social activist Paul Hawken calls our “blessed unrest”. It’s the worldwide movement of people engaged in enlightening their own individual selves, or working together in grass-roots collectives to bring about enlightened social and environmental change.This volcanic year activates many “warriors of light”:
“You who are knowing the power inside you,
Not yet speaking
because it’s not yet time:
Wait for opportunity that matches these stars:
Jupiter conjunct the Sun. How will you know?
–Does it glow?
Does it light you up?
Are you happy to do it?
Then be of service in the army of silent warriors. Silent now
Until Further Notice.”
Astrologically speaking, 2012 will put us on notice, speaking through many striking planetary line-ups, urging us to try this and give up that…never a dull moment from now on until the end of the year!
Magic spell that will go well: For best success this Mother’s Day, love what you’re bringing into the world, and offer something for others to love.
