Rubble, Trouble, and Celestial Evolution at my Door

Dreaming I am driving in the city, a city, the way I dream of New York lately. Houston Street is always a vast 8-lane highway that breaks off in a V, dividing the Lower East Side from the rest of the city. Massive buildings, uneven, bulging, and swaying—thousands and thousands of windows. No room for air. It’s grey, the sky, the city, everything. Even red and yellow have a coat of grey.

Navigating this Summer’s Mercury Retrograde

For instance, with Mercury Retrograding in Leo, it may be a time to let go and enjoy the warm summer sun while not worrying about looking “perfect”! It’s nice to look good, but this may be a lesson in relaxing about our outer appearance. On the other hand, if you’ve got an important event to attend, it may be wise to be prepared by bringing back up attire, or allow extra time for ironing—just know that you may have to make an extra effort to feel good about how you look, or that someone may spill red wine on your white blouse . . .

Moving out of T-Town and a Solar Eclipse

I am also going to do some moon magic – a little letting go, a little intention setting, and a little gratitude. Of course, it’s good to take stock on a regular basis—and have some gratitude everyday—but today is especially big. (My friend Robert Alvarez created a lovely post regarding the moon and the power of “no” just this morning. Check Robert’s post out).

your dream and real prosperity

There are times when, to be more fully Prosperous (especially so that you can receive Peace, Health and Plenty), you need to use the word “no.” For example, to what or to whom did you say “yes,” when you are now long overdue to say “no?” What or who have you been accepting and tolerating in virtually every way when you simply need to surrender and release it, him or her? And what burden have you been carrying around as your “lot in life,” when you can simply create Heaven on Earth by no longer accepting it, tolerating it, having it? ~Robert Alvarez, Psychic Witch

Ego rising with the Sun (on the ascendent)

In places where the Sun is located on the Ascendant, there is a greater self-confidence and a more balanced and potent self-image. We feel focussed, and this makes us proud of our individual achievements, and mindful of gaining respect in all transactions. For those individuals who appear uncertain and weak, a stay at such locations is highly recommended.

Why the bull, Taurus?

Taurus is a “fixed” sign. The fixed signs are the creative pillars of the zodiac and they have great stability and power. The bull has great strength, stability and sexual potency and the cow is the nurturer who gives its wonderful, nourishing milk freely. They are the archetypal animal embodiment of God / Goddess – the totem of the Creator. Native Americans use the skull of another bovine animal, the buffalo, to represent Creator on their altar. Its universal – cattle are considered sacred in Jainism, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism as well as the religions of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.

Personal Evolution and Astrology: Steven Forrest’s “Inner Sky”

Forrest calls his approach evolutionary astrology. Though there are certain traits a person may have that may be revealed in their birth chart, they are not necessarily static—each person has the choice to grow. We are all here to evolve. Rather than telling the future, an evolutionary astrologer may help the subject find the path that will lead toward growth.

Valentine’s “week” in horoscopes: Romance between Cancer and Capricorn

“Your shadow is moonlight on a plate of silver; your footsteps, the seeding-place of lilies; the mystery of your voice, a chime of bells across the windless river air. The movement of your hands is the long golden running of light from a rising sun. Young horses are not more limber than your thoughts. Your laughs are bees buzzing around a pear tree. I dare to reach to you. I dare to touch the rim of your brightness.”

Letting Go – or – Clearing your Karma (by the moon)

In the Don’t Want List is the photographic negative of the Do Want List. Like a photographic negative, the positive image is embedded in the reverse imagery. Write your Don’t Wants for the time being. Focus on releasing your Don’t Wants as the Eclipses process and release the karma, the drama, the events from June 2009 and June 2010. Release, release as the Moon narrows in the sky. Psychologically process the emotional events of the eclipse to get to the next chapter.
