Every day it seems more practical to be an optimist, to believe in brighter days and be working towards them, because I do understand that’s how there will be brighter days. And when I’m not in my own wonderful world, I’m wondering if we’re all going over the cliff with mad king Trump, and taking Nature with us.
Accompanying me at home in Santa Fe this holiday weekend is listener-sponsored radio station WWOZ in New Orleans, putting on another “next ‘fest thing” , two weekends of broadcasts from past great JazzFest performances, and look at the cubes in the schedule: (whatever you miss you can listen to in their two week archive.
Not everyone is hanging out at home, though… Santa Fe has plenty of out-of-state cars on the streets, and stores and restaurants have extra- catchy “Open” signs. The Santa Fe river is running, people are strolling and shopping, and I see very few people now without their masks. I can attest to the feeling of security it gives one to have a governor who takes the pandemic seriously, whose leadership is keeping locals and visitors safe: thank you, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham!
Have a beautiful last-of-summer Labor Day weekend, and I hope to hear from you if not see you,
Newsletter details: Beginning with next month’s Fall 2020, this newsletter will go back to its quarterly format, October, January, April, and July, with monthly horoscopes in between on my blog. When they’re posted, I’ll tweet etc. and send a link to subscribers.
Update on working in person: I tried it with someone from New Mexico, and it’s just not work that can be done safely with people given Covid19, in a building I share with other people. So it’s over-the-phone Psychic Counseling and Spiritual Healing for the time being. (The way I get insights is not additionally enhanced by seeing you – I prefer the phone over Zoom.) To request an appointment: 505-982-3294, email@example.com, or text/cell at 505-577-4012.
Until the end of the year, complimentary mp3’s: I had taken down the Covid Special on my website but am reinstating it: no charge for recordings of the sessions through December 31st on sessions or gift certificates.
Sun in Virgo 2020 Psychic Messages, August 22rd-September 21st
When the Sun is in Virgo, we appreciate getting things in order. Keeping a personal order is a comfort now, a relief from high-pressure events and existential threats. The first couple of weeks of this cycle are full of pressure, but the things that get revealed to us point out what has to be done, and how to prepare for the future.
Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures: Sun in Virgo is excellent for plans to get things done. How about a GoFundMe campaign to save democracy? I would definitely chip in to fund organizers and an army of healthy citizens to fuel the massive voter turnout needed. “Saving Democracy” seems like a very easy fundraiser project, with millions wanting and waiting to contribute.
Messages from the Stars
Society at Large: On September 9th, Mars goes retrograde and squares a powerful configuration of planets, and this brings out our base, instinctive sides, and encourages extremes of all kinds. Peoples’ id and libido run wild. Sexual adventures get kinkier and more violent. Permission feels granted to be very bad, and people are cruel and ruthless. Trump’s attempt to stay in power kicks into high gear, and US election sabotage and Russian interference take off like a rocket ship.
For the individual, the retrograde motion of Mars until mid-November indicates a frustrating cycle when it comes to dealing with bureaucracy and the world in general, but it lends us personal strength and power, too. Suddenly people can see themselves like others might, or see more clearly how they operate, and what their habits are doing to them – or for them if they’re good habits. A new level of self-awareness can trigger positive changes now. It’s also an excellent time to learn new skills and bulk up your toolkit for living well – pandemic changes have also eased up some peoples’ lives so they have more time now.
To summarize, it’s easier than usual to get frustrated and angry and feel like you’re going a little crazy. The best foil for that is to stay focused on what’s under your control, take even better care of yourself than you have been, and let an awful lot go.
Psychic Predictions September 2020
September 2020 USA Pictograph: “Jaw-Dropping). At first a lot of talk but no action, a lot of grey area, as in nebulous and not committed, and hard to see or say what’s really happening. This is when election interference and propaganda campaigns ramp up – and what is jaw-dropping is that people are not helped. With all the natural disasters and economic catastrophes, the lack of government help and what people are accepting or rather having to accept, is jaw-dropping. Also jaw-dropping is whatever happens with this election.*
The ongoing strategy for dealing with the American people is to keep them burdened with responsibility, so everything is on the backs of the governors, the municipalities, the counties – nothing is given in the way of support – leaving the citizens busy and overwhelmed, and going under financially, and this allows whatever different road the United States may be on, to be built.
Corporations’ Growing Sponsorship Role: Banks, corporations…they come out to help citizens much more in the future.
A Spoken Word Poem About Democracy in the U.S.A., September 2020:
About Democracy in the U.S.A., September 2020
“Angry Angry Resolute
Squeeze Its Throat ‘Til It’s Dead”
Explication: How the government handles Americans’ lives make them first incredibly angry, then resolute as if they try to do something about it, then weary because society has broken down for them and life is hard, then waning as if the energy to change things wanes… and because those in power aim to destroy democracy and thereby stay in power, they’ll try to: “squeeze its throat ‘til it’s dead” , when people are weaker than they are right now.
Intervention Needed by Those in Power: It’s by sitting and watching things develop – letting this evil fester and continue – that will give rise to Godzilla-sized problems. Democrats would have to stop focusing on campaigning for elections to do what they can to stop a coup. A keg of evil is just about to blow, to grow very large and explode in many directions at once. Unless there’s a concerted effort to stop it, the U.S. could be like Germany before WW2, when liberals made posters and held rallies, but did not have the power to stop the Nazi movement from dismantling their democracy.
COUNSELORS WILL BE NEEDED, AND INNOVATION: A gigantic mental health crisis could be in the offing, with people having to adjust to too much change and not enough help. New mental health fields and formats are on the horizon. The breakdowns people go through are a microcosm of the larger breakdowns due to a “greed is good” principle as the foundation of a society. Apparently a natural step beginning with that bottom line is authoritarianism. Breakdowns, the body’s last resort healing technique, happen when something has to be let go of, and when it resurrects itself, pieces are differently arranged, some things are left out, and now they are on a different foundation and with new options.
THE WEATHER, THE PANDEMIC, AND THE POTENTIAL ELECTION CONSEQUENCES: Very turbulent weather, throwing lives up in the air. In general, it is through destruction and the dissolution of a lot of structure in our lives, that we again move forward. There are a surprising amount of pandemic deaths to go – it shows a clogged field of dead bodies. When the country is beaten down and weakened, a foreign power that I associate with the color red, Russia, comes into the picture in some new way, and is an influence we are more linked to in the future.

Spiritual Guidance for Americans if their Fortunes Change: “Oooh Whee what a ride! That was fantastic. Now we must go underground for a while. Resurrect ourselves. Believe in ourselves. Be ourselves. Bake our own bread… and be alive to possibility once again. Blessed Be.”
September 2020 Psychic Horoscopes – Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire Signs: The Sun in Virgo, August 23rd –September 22nd, is a time you are reacting more to the general anxiousness in the air. What’s on your mind, and what you choose to think about, can be worrisome. Cut out as much fear-inducing info as possible! You think about moving away, getting away – you want to try something new and are more willing to experiment and explore. You feel in some way you have to start over, but the big picture is not in view. Use your imagination to see what made-up scenarios please you! This time is not terrific for making money, but for working on stuff that needs to be done, and improving your daily order. If disheartened, it’s a sign something has to be let go of, and something in you has to come back alive.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water Signs: It’s hard to make headway in what’s important to you – whatever your causes or whomever you’re trying to help – even though you yourself might feel freer than you were before. Quite a bit goes on this month is out of your control; expect delays in justice and partnership issues. You don’t like how some things are going, and the current choices in life and decisions that have to be made, but it all still may be necessary in light of the overall truth of your life.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air Signs: You’re on the track of something that grows in strength, that works, or that catapults you into a different circumstance. There are a lot of unknowns up ahead, but it looks like because of how things are set up and that other people are helpful, dreams can come true! A change in location is considered. You are seeing the writing on the wall.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth Signs: You are cautiously optimistic, and getting stronger. Once you get start taking action on a plan and begin to make something happen, you see it’s worth it… you have to sort of get over a hump in the beginning to reap the benefits of your effort. You’ll see what you can do, the help you can get, and what’s being offered. It’s more like next April that you see the rewards of what you’re doing now. Meanwhile, dissatisfaction can make you act, and learn something new! Keep chipping away at all the stuff you want to take care of – one thing at a time, and take it easy on yourself as you do it.
*The pictograph’s word and title, “Jaw-dropping”, reminds me of a Nostradamus quatrain associated with Donald Trump:
The great shameless, audacious bawler,
He will be elected governor of the army:
The boldness of his contention,
The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.
If Nostradamus were talking about Trump, from afar he noticed the same qualities that stick out today. We’re all shocked at how audacious Trump is to attempt a coup, and act like a king. We’re shocked that he shamelessly lies thousands of times. We are alarmed out how bold he is with the army, using it to defend himself. We see the bridge is breaking between classes and colors and political parties of Americans. And we see protests in cities turn violent, and people who can afford it fleeing the cities for the safety of the suburbs.
Recently I read a lot of old newsletters for predictions about Covid19, and found this one from Summer 2019 (June) that seems to most closely describe where we’re at:
“Summer 2019 Out in the World: People do more awful things and see more awful things perpetrated on other people than ever. People are surprised, shocked and disoriented by something very destructive that’s produced or that happens – that they haven’t seen before. It is blighting or causes destruction in the physical world. Something concrete in the U.S. that stops activity is coming, like a government shutdown, like a wall, where nothing can move forward. Well, I certainly hope every single word of this paragraph is wrong.”
Then I looked for a prediction that went beyond this initial stopping of everything, and found the following in the April 2019 newsletter draft, in response to a curious phenomenon among my clientele. It gave rise to a prediction about the future. In March and April 2019, the same scenario suddenly showed up in psychic messages I gave to a group of workshop participants, and also in readings with private clients:
“UNPUBLISHED April 16th blog article: In March and April, some private clients and workshop participants seemed to be called to respond to a future circumstance that made me wonder:
‘I’m noticing some trends in clients lately, and also a few repeating scenarios in divinations. In an effort to see past the immediate state of things blowing up, falling apart, and clamping down, here’s what emerged about the future:
Both in groups and with personal sessions, it shows people responding to, or helping out in a new circumstance. They’re performing services for the good of the community – something new to participate in, i.e. the “draft” concept – for the good of all.
It showed a change in social conditions, a coming change that created a different environment, I assume in the U.S. and other places. It was the sense that things were going to seem okay for a while, like months or longer but not that much longer, and then they weren’t going to be okay, similar in feeling to the end of 2007, when things got unstable and uncharted.”
One prediction that worries me in the immediate future is one from the January 2020 newsletter:
“There’s a dark power in New York”: This is so vague, but looking online tonight at the New York Times headlines, it says there was a big crackdown today on Long Island of the gang “MS-13”, with 96 charged (December 20, 2019). It could be that because this is super-recent and active in NY, it came through to me as a message.”
I knew I didn’t understand: “There’s a dark power in New York”, but knowing psychic messages, it’s very unlikely a message on the 2019 Winter Solstice would be about an arrest that night on Long Island. Now, I’m afraid it’s commenting on the potentially powerful impact of the coronavirus in New York City.
I am still hopeful of a surprisingly quick disappearance from my interpretation of the signs. However, something I did not put in the corona virus map explication turns out to be important to emphasize. When I finished it and put it away, the virus said after a little pause, “I’m silent”, and then showed me what it meant.
This is another reason it is so important to physically isolate: all the ways it was “silent” meant it was hard to know when and how one got infected, how long one could pass it on – it was truly different and foreign – and then there was the idea that it could disappear, go underground, and come back.
In divided America, it looks like we might all get together because of this awful virus, and see we’re all dependent on each other, and need to be together on this. I am slightly hopeful from the February 23rd corona virus map that we will be. We learn we’re all in this together has been the spiritual message from the Fall that Trump got elected (from the October 2016 Newsletter): “Nature and its creatures take a big hit. The truth that resounds through whatever suffering we witness… is that we are all affected, all in this together, all One.”
The first day of Spring 2020 is March 19th (Happy Birthday, Aries!) which comes unusually early – the earliest in 124 years. For the occasion I booked an Airbnb adobe with a view of Taos Mountain. Its challenging and formidable presence feels like the right backdrop to ask for spiritual guidance for the coming season.
I have a similar post prepared that highlights descriptions from past newsletters of potential financial and social conditions in the U.S., which I’ll post when I return. All the above quotes are from the online newsletters, and I plan to go through my blog and other sites where I’m published for other messages, as the online newsletter ones have been the most heavily edited and toned down by me. I learned a big lesson re-reading my material to not do that!
Meanwhile, I think the bonus set of Spring 2020 horoscopes got lost in the shuffle in the recent March 2020 newsletter. They were part of a new divination experiment, the “prediction pics”, so here they are again:
(from the March 2020 newsletter):Extra Horoscope Messages for Spring 2020
Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
The stars are bright for this Spring, and very, very good for manifesting one’s creativity: 2020 is a year for people to try their own ideas. Their urge to produce something unique is the something that likely has the most currency with others. Keep it cheap.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire Signs: “Up!” (Keep your personal goals in mind; keep your commitment to them; keep going.) “Keep it up, do what’s right; push your energy to move your muscles.” The inference is you gotta actually do the work and there’s quite a bit to keep up if you are to get somewhere new, or get in shape.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water Signs: Fertile time creatively: “plenty o’ ideas.” Spring’s transiting planets suggest you’ll be vocal and active and engaged this Spring. Remember to take care of yourself.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air Signs: Where you have supportive relationships, these grow this Spring, and become an even greater source of strength.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth Signs: “Get down to earth” is a warning not to go overboard with spending this Spring, and that you should give your goals and ambitions a reality check. There’s nothing the matter with wild ideas, as long as they are also pragmatic and feasible. It’s a great time to make a budget and find out how much your life costs.
