This is soooooo funny - you will laugh till you cry (I did)

Laughter really is the best medicine!  Don't you love it when you laugh until your belly hurts? They say that laughter balances the body's hormones, and it can literally heal illness. It for sure lifts our vibrations, which is what we want to attract good things into our lives.

I found this video and it makes me laugh so hard every time I watch it.  It's short, Have a look.

New Moon Magic Oct 30, 2016

We have a New Moon at 8 Scorpio on Oct 30, 2016 at 10:38 am PDT.  New Moons are magical times, when the energy and lessons from the previous month are waning down and we are preparing for new beginnings and new energy to come into our lives.

This New Moon in particular is fantastic for manifestation, as its in the transformative sign of
Scorpio.  Scorpio is all about healing and letting go of what no longer serves us. This would be a great New Moon to let go of a bad habit, a negative attitude, an old fear, or even a recent one.  Fears are the ego's way of keeping us separate and making us forget who we really are.  We are all divine beings of light, and natural good health and infinite abundance are our divine birthright, but fear often gets in the way and makes us forget that and we lose trust and faith that all will be provided.  And the fear then has its own vibration and we attract even more of what we don't want!  Fear and anxiety can be pretty horrible. I know because I've had more than my fair share of both this year after Mom transitioned. Letting go and letting God is my new mantra, and some days are easier than others.

This New Moon is at 8 Scorpio, and the Sabian Symbol for this is

"The Moon shining across a lake" - It's an opportunity to quietly reflect on the feminine aspects of your life and possibly feel the gentle warmth of the Goddess. Reflections."  (from The Sabian Symbols as an Oracle by Lynda Hill and Richard Hill).

Very nice!  And it makes sense as this New Moon is trining watery Neptune.  Neptune is all about imagination and creativity, as well as spirituality and intuition and love.  The last 2 months have been extremely intense with the eclipses in September and the separative Full Moon this last weekend - we need a bit of a break!

These aspects also speak to exceptional insight, intuition and psychic perception with both Scorpio and Neptune involved.  Pay attention to your dreams now and moving forward if you can remember them upon awakening. There's a whole wellspring of information there.

Setting intentions with the New Moon is a very powerful way to make them manifest. The power of a New Moon is potent, as there is strong celestial energy to take the seeds of your intention and help them to grow and flower. Ancient lore says to always have money in your pocketbook on the day of the New Moon to ensure you will have money all month long.

Write down what you want to manifest in your life, or do some sort of ritual that has meaning for you. Doing a ritual involves invoking powers greater than ourselves, such as God, Goddess, Archangels, Angels, Fairies or elementals. One could use animal totems or animal medicine,

Scorpio Neptune intentions could be around healing, health, financial abundance, letting go of what no longer serves, or transforming some part of your life. It's also great for passion and sex and love.

The window of opportunity is the 30th and the 31st, so you've got a couple of days to at least get conscious of what you want to bring forth this month,  Halloween is a powerful time on its own, as they say its when the veil between the 2 worlds is the thinnest - perhaps your intentions have even more oomph then.

Brad and Angelina divorce - the astrology

Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie - the heat between them was impossible to ignore!  They have chemistry on and off the screen, and their charts show it.  In fact, their charts are full of hard aspects, showing that they have excitement and passion between them, but also lots of challenges.

Angie's Uranus squares Brad's Venus and Moon, so he found her very exciting!  Her Pluto squares his Mars, making for very combustible energy. His Pluto and Uranus inconjunct her Mars (double whammy Mars Pluto here), and square her Sun, making for excitement, but also for a very strong battle of wills.   Her Venus opposes his Venus, and her Mars squares his Mars, and her Sun opposes his Sun.  Yikes... this is an intense combination, (a challenging combination), which is fabulous for chemistry too, but they absolutely need a way to channel all that excitement and volatility.  Acting in movies is a rather good way to channel all that drama and need for change, and the constant traveling helps too.  Her Sun falls on his Descendant (committed relationship angle), and his Moon and Venus fall on hers, which is a very strong reason why they got together in the first place. 

We are currently in eclipse season, and we just had a potent Lunar Eclipse last Friday on the 16th at 25 Pisces, as well as a big Solar Eclipse on Sept 1 at 10 Virgo. Eclipses always bring about endings and beginnings in some way, large or small, and this is the time we often hear of big life changes. This solar eclipse really hit their charts hard, which is why Angie probably decided to file for divorce. The eclipse squared her Sun and Neptune. The eclipse in Pisces is also conjunct Neptune, and this energy tends to dissolve things as well as bring things to light.  It brought to light something in their relationship which Angie could not tolerate and so decided to end it.

TMZ reported it had to do with Brad's lifestyle choices and also the way he parented the kids.  

Angie's progressed Venus is at 4 Cancer, so her love planet got eclipsed this month. Something happened to make her think, okay, that's it. 

That solar eclipse hit Brad in his 4th house of home and family, and exactly hit his Pluto Uranus as well as his Chiron in the 4th.  It also squared his Ascendant.

Angelina also has an exact progressed Sun and Saturn conjunction right now, which means she's facing the cold hard truth of reality. If something isn't working, you're forced to face it and deal with it when Sun and Saturn come together.

Oddly enough, Brad also has his progressed Sun conjuncting his natal Saturn, so he's having the same restrictive, reality check right now. 

It's surprising for many of us, as well as quite sad, there are 6 kids involved in this. They had 12 years together though, which is actually pretty good in Hollywood years. That's probably like 30 in normal human years.  

When 2 people marry, the chart for their relationship and their married life starts the moment they say I Do.  Brad and Angelina were together for 10 years before they got married, and then they got married and it ends after 2 years?  Many astrologers say its because the marriage chart was not as good as the relationship chart.  The relationship chart is born the moment 2 people have sex, according to the Magi, although some say its the moment you first meet someone.  Either way, their relationship chart was obviously better than their marriage chart.  I don't know when they met, but their marriage chart was for Aug 23, 2013 in France.  They have a close Mars Saturn conjunction in that chart, which is quite brutal.  Anger and control and frustration issues.  There is also the Sun oppose Neptune, which could point to the alleged substance abuse issues rumoured to be part of the divorce scenario. 

PLUS, they were married at the dark of the moon.  That time just before the moon is new, when the lunar energy is at its lowest.  This is the absolute worst time to start something new, as there is no celestial oomph to carry things through.  As I progress their marriage chart, the moon has just now progressed to the sun, which signals the end of the cycle. 

If you've got a great relationship already, getting married can bring a whole new energy into the mix depending on the date you get hitched.

New Study proves link between Moon Phases and Earthquakes

This isn't news for any astrologer.  As above, so below. The Moon affects the tides, it affects the human body (we're just big bags of water really), and now scientists can prove how the Moon and its phases affect the actual ground we stand on.

HOLLISTER (CBS SF) — A new study that says there may be a link between earthquakes and the moon and sun could change the way scientists study tectonic plates.
Like most of California, Hollister is on shaky ground. And with a swarm of numerous small earthquakes over the last few days.The ground is shakier than normal.
“The internet said there were 18, but I only felt four,” said Hollister resident Rori Nelson. “They were short of rolling quakes, like someone was nudging you.”
But scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey say there is much more going on below the surface than just the earthquakes you can feel.  
A new study says much smaller quakes are happening deep down below the earth’s crust almost on a regular schedule that are tied to the phases of the moon.
Just as the moon’s gravitational pull affects the ocean tides, scientists say they now have hard data to show how it has the same effect on hard ground.  Continue here

Solar Eclipse in Virgo Sept 1, 2016

I'm still working on feeling better, which is slowly happening I'm happy to say, but in the meantime I'm linking to a wonderful post by a wonderful Canadian astrologer Nadia Gilchrist.over at Ruby Slipper Astrology.  She has a fantastic take on the New Moon Solar Eclipse coming on September 1st.

"It won't be a triumphant eclipse. There will be some humbling. This is Virgo, after all. You may have to give something up. But, if you've held fast in the face of dissolving evidence, insisting that your faith was aligned with the right thing, this eclipse might prove you correct. Not with a blast of trumpets, but with a quiet *click* as the confirmation arrives. But this will only happen if you've been tuned into the real deal. If you've been trying to prop up a fantasy...get ready to say goodbye.  Continue reading here

Johnny Depp - is he really that volatile?

We just heard the news that Amber Heard is suing Johnny Depp for divorce, and said he has been abusing her for 4 years!

Johnny Depp is certainly a classic introvert, as you can see on talk shows. Very soft spoken and doesn't say too much.  He seems uncomfortable talking about himself. He comes alive when acting though, or taking on the persona of other people. He's certainly a very gifted actor.  But what about these allegations of physical abuse?

We'd have to check his astrological chart to see if he has this kind of signature. We'd look for harsh aspects between Mars, Uranus and Pluto for sure.

Johnny Depp was born on June 9, 1963 and he is a Leo Rising.

Johnny has a triple of conjunction of Mars, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo!  Yep, that can symbolize volatility if its not channeled properly. Mars is the planet of anger and assertion, and when it conjoins volcanic Pluto it can indicate someone with intense rage issues.  Mars also conjoins unpredictable Uranus, which adds another level of fear and instability to the mix.

This is incredibly intense energy to have to deal with and to channel. It can provide one with an enormous wellspring of physical energy on a positive level, or it can take you down on other levels.

Mars Pluto indicates someone with a very high sex drive and intense desires, as Pluto can be rather compulsive at times, which could account for his substance abuse issues.  Mars Uranus likes to take risks and may not be the best when it comes to discipline.  It also shows great courage too.

This is the main configuration in his chart and shows as his main challenge and lesson in this lifetime. Its all about channelling this intensity in some kind of positive way, because if you don't it will take you down. There is no way around it.

Could Donald Trump actually become President? - the astrology of The Donald

When it comes to tracking big life changes, I like to look at the Progressed Lunar Phases of a chart. Just like we have a New Moon, a First Quarter, a Full Moon a Third Quarter and a Balsamic lunar phase over our heads in the sky every month, we also have our own Personal Progressed Lunar phases, from New Moons through Full Moons and back to New again. 

The entire progressed lunar cycle takes about 30 years, so every 30 years we have a brand new beginning in our life when we come into our Progressed New Moon phase. It can get kind of technical, so I'll just say that it depends on what phase of the Moon you were born under, and then we progress the Moon through time to the age you are at now, and then see what angle it is to the Sun.

So where is Donald Trump in his progressed lunar phases?  Is he at the beginning of a new phase or at the end?

In April of 2016, Donald Trump enters his Balsamic Phase.  This is the very end of his 30 year progressed lunar phase cycle, and the Balsamic phase itself lasts about 3.5 years. Something is coming to an end for him this year and next, and he's letting certain things go in order to move into a brand new 30 year cycle which starts in Sept of 2019!

If the Donald were to become President of the US, he would be in a progressed balsamic phase when he took oath of office in Jan of 2017.  Balsamic phases are about letting go to make room for the new, which is exactly what he is doing.  Balsamic phases are times of transition. Some people already know what their 'new moon' cycle is going to be about in the Balsamic phase, and they are preparing for it. It's a bridge from an old way of life, an old cycle, to a new way of life and a new cycle. Donald will enter his New Moon phase, which is a whole new 30 year cycle, in 2019, which is when he would be in office if he won.  It actually does make sense.  Usually the Balsamic phase is about letting go, but in a sense he is letting go of an old persona of a businessman, and now becoming a politician and a leader.  It is quite a shift,which is exactly what one would expect when one shifts from balsamic phase to new moon phase.  There is always a huge shift in focus. Now, in a perfect world I would think that he would already be in a New Moon phase when he took office if he won, but astrology doesn't always work so perfectly.  Still, it does show that if he won he would be taking office 18 months before his actual New Moon phase kicked in.  Which is pretty darn close.

It looks like he could indeed become President based on the progressed lunar cycle.

So, lets look at his actual progressed lunar cycle chart. His progressed New Moon chart has Saturn and Pluto conjunct his MC.  This is a chart of a very powerful man wielding a lot of authority.  Which is another indication that it could indeed be a possibility.

From what I've been reading, a lot of Bernie Sander's supports are vowing to not vote if Bernie is not elected as the Democatic nominee.  Which means a lot of Democrats would not be voting, which creates a perfect storm for someone like Donald Trump to win - simply because not enough people are out voting.

What happens to his chart on voting day, Nov 8, 2016 ?  His progressed Uranus opposes his natal Moon almost exactly. Uranus is sudden happenings, shock and sometimes separation. I think even Donald Trump would be shocked if he won!  Plus it also can mean a change of home base, and he would be moving to the White House if he won.  We would also need to see transiting Saturn hitting his chart in a significant way if he were to win, as Saturn is about authority and work, and yep, Saturn is coming up to conjunct his Moon and oppose his Sun.  In fact, Saturn will be on his Moon and opposing his Sun on January 20th of 2017 when the new President is sworn on.

I'd say that there is indeed a very good chance that he could win, astrologically speaking.  I still count on the hearts and minds of the American people to focus on love instead of hate, and for all the people to come out and vote, which will make a huge difference in the outcome. Still, Donald Trump does have the guts to come and speak the truth about a lot of issues that have been whitewashed for so long. Hillary is not a very nice person, from what I've read about her. Check out this post Hillary

Lada Ray also calls for the Republicans to win. She is an amazing geopolitical analyst but with a metaphysical bent. She tends to be right on most things that she talks about.  Here's the link to her site

Gardening by the Moon

It's that time of year again - time to start thinking about planting our gardens. Planting according to the cycles of the Moon helps to ensure our flowers are full and gorgeous and our gardens are healthy and abundant.

The energy for growth begins with the New Moon, increases as we go through the Crescent and First Quarter Moon, and then peaks at the Full Moon.   The actual day of the New Moon is still dark - there is no light yet, so its best to wait a couple of days before you start planting.

The basic rule of thumb is - start planting crops, flowers and vegetables that bear fruit above the ground a few days after the New Moon and right up until the Full Moon to get the healthiest vegetables, the biggest and most colourful flowers and the juiciest fruit. The days from the Full Moon to the next New Moon - when the Moon is decreasing in light- is best to plant bulbs or vegetables that bear fruit under the ground.   It's also best to do weeding when the Moon is decreasing in light. It's also a great time to mow the lawn so it grows more slowly - not to mention your own hair if you like to go long times between haircuts!

For a little extra growing oomph, try to plant under the most fertile signs of the Moon, which are Taurus and Cancer, and then also the other water signs and earth signs (Virgo not as much).

The planting season typically starts with the New Moon in fertile Taurus which falls on Friday May 5th this year,, and the two weeks following it are the best time to plant. 

So, from May 5th through to the days just past the Full moon on May 21st are the most fertile planting days of the season.

As I said before, you don't want to plant right on a New Moon, as there is still not enough light yet. You need to wait at least a couple of days to get the most growing oomph.  I would start on May 9th and 10th when the Moon is in fertile Cancer, and there is more light and growing energy from the Moon. 

Water signs and earth signs are the most fertile signs of the moon, Air signs such as Libra are not the most fertile signs, but it is the sign that rules beauty!  It can be a good time to plant flowers when you want big gorgeous blossoms, or for plants that you want to be extraordinarily beautiful. The Moon is in Libra on May 16th and 17th.

You've got right from May 5th through to May 21st to plant, when the Moon's light comes to its peak at the Full Moon.  The few days surrounding the Full Moon are okay too,  but once it starts to wane and lose its light after it peaks at the Full Moon, then there's no more energy for the plants to bear juicy fruit or grow big flowers or be hearty and strong.  May 22nd and 23rd are fine too as the Moon is still in its Full Moon phase.

Some astrologers say that the few days just before the Full Moon are the best, since this is when the Moon has its most light, and this is when there is more groundwater available for the plants to use and to grow.   I've done it, and the plants do very well, but I also like to plant on the most fertile days as well when the Moon is in an earth sign or a water sign.  May 19th and 20th are both good as they surround the Full Moon and are in the fertile water sign of Scorpio.

Here are pics of flowers I planted last spring on my balcony, about a week after the New Moon in Taurus.

Happy Planting!

Lada Ray's predictions for the Year of the Fire Monkey

I love Lada Ray.  Her predictions in the past have always turned out to be pretty good so lets see what she has to say about the Year of the Monkey.

"Year of the Monkey is always the 9th year of the 12-year cycle. The next Year of the Monkey will be in 2028. Each year of the Monkey is different, depending on the element of the Heavenly Stem. Therefore, this is the Year of the Fire, or Red, Monkey. Such year is only repeated once every 60 years.
“Lada’s global prognosis for 2016…: First two-thirds of the year will be volatile and confrontational. Clashes and uneasy situation will continue throughout the world. There is a good chance that a more peaceful approach to international conflict resolution will prevail in the last third of the year, most likely starting in October 2016.
“2016 will be a sickly year for many people as the Illness Star is now in the center, its energy affecting all. Be careful not to get a flu, protect yourself by eating healthy, boost your energy via healthy supplements, and make sure you get enough rest this year"
Monkey in the Chinese Zodiac 
Monkey people are considered sociable, quick, intellectual fast studies, and mischievous tricksters who love practical jokes. They can be quite lucky with money and good as entrepreneurs. They are adaptable and can work in a range of professions. At least, that’s what conventional wisdom tells us. ;)
  • Strengths: sociable, innovative, enthusiastic, self-assured
  • Weaknesses: suspicious, cunning, selfish, arrogant, jealous
Fire Monkey: Fire creates passion, but can also produce irritation. Passion, quick wit and irritability are common to fire monkeys, and it will be common for this year in general.

What is Chinese New Year all about?

The Feng Shui new year is derived from the solar calendar and it always changes over February 4th-5th. This date denotes the Annual Flying Star energy change.

Meanwhile, Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the combined lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The New Year usually begins in the end of January or in the beginning to mid-February, depending on when the new moon falls. There are 15 days of festivities, starting on New Year’s Eve. The culmination is the Lantern Festival, which takes place on the 15th day of the new year.
The Chinese symbol for monkeyThe Chinese symbol for monkey
Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac wheel is a little like the Western astrological Zodiac, except each Chinese animal marks a year, instead of a month.
Feng Shui and the Chinese philosophy significance:
Apart from the fact that in Chinese zodiac each animal marks a year vs. Western zodiac, where each astrological sign marks a calendar month, there are other major differences. The Chinese zodiac also corresponds with the wheel of 8 cardinal and intercardinal subdirections of the compass. In addition, each of the 12 animals corresponds to one of the Five Elements. This energetic correspondence is registered each year twice (called Earthly Branch and Heavenly Stem) within the 60 year cycle of 12 animals multiplied by 5 elements.
Each animal of the zodiac also has a correspondence to a specific Aspiration in the Eight Mansions (Lada Ray’s term: Eight Aspirations) system, as well as in the Chinese Numerology.
Year of the Monkey is always the 9th year of the 12-year cycle. The next Year of the Monkey will be in 2028. Each year of the Monkey is different, depending on the element of the Heavenly Stem. Therefore, this is the Year of the Fire, or Red, Monkey. Such year is only repeated once every 60 years.Those who turn exactly 60 years of age between February 2016 and January 2017 are Fire Monkeys and they experience a full cycle return this year

The Astrology of Beauty

What are the aspects that make someone unusually beautiful?  Inner beauty always shines through of course, but I'm talking about those people that have classically beautiful looks. John F. Kennedy Jr is one amazing example. Gorgeous. People like Elvis Presley, Robert Redford and Sharon Stone are all extremely gorgeous people. Remember Sharon Stone when she was in Total Recall? I remember thinking she was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen.

So, what are the astrological indicators of people that are seen as unusally physically beautiful?  It seems that Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces, strong Venus and Neptune are the most usual indicators of unusual beauty and being photogenic as well.

I've noticed that people with Capricorn rising are often very good looking. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which gives great bone structure usually. John John Kennedy was a Capricorn rising.  Elvis Presley was a Capricorn Sun too actually. My girlfriend who is a double Capricorn is extremely beautiful.

I've also noticed that many models are Virgo or Virgo rising. Again with the earth signs. It gives a more streamlined appearance in many cases (not all) and Virgo rising people sometimes have a very neat looking appearance. They're just well put together.

Venus is the planet that rules beauty, and those with prominent Venus placements tend to be seen as beautiful. Angelina Jolie has Venus in Cancer right on her Ascendant, and she is definitely quite beautiful.

For true ethereal beauty though, Neptune wins hands down! Neptune gives one a sort of a glamour, or other worldly kind of beauty.  Pisceans are co-ruled by Neptune, so you see a lot of very beautiful and photogenic Pisces types.  Cindy Crawford has 6 planets in Pisces, and has a Cancer Rising. Neptune in Scorpio is trine her Cancer Asc, and all her Piscean planets are trine her Asc. She also has Venus aspecting her Asc as well.  Very watery gal, and very beautiful.

Sharon Stone is a Pisces Sun, with a Virgo rising, and she has Neptune aspecting her Asc. She's got all 3 things going for her. Plus, she also has Pluto right on her Virgo Asc, giving her an extra dose of sex appeal.

Robert Redford is a Virgo Sun with 4 planets in Virgo, plus he is a Pisces Rising. He has Neptune conjunct all his Virgo planets too, making him even more Neptunian. Could be why he is so successful in the movies, since Neptune rules movies and photography in general. It makes one very photogenic.

John Kennedy Jr was a Capricorn Sun with 3 planets in Capricorn, and a Virgo rising. His Venus, beauty planet, was in Capricorn trine his Virgo Ascendant.  He also had Neptune sextile his Asc. Hr had all the factors of unusual beauty in his chart - Capricorn, Neptune, Virgo and Venus.

Elvis Presely was a Capricorn Sun with 3 planets in Capricorn. His beauty planet Venus was in Capricorn too, conjunct his Sun. He also had Neptune in Virgo trine his Capricorn planets.

What about someone more present day, like Brad Pitt.  Brad Pitt has 4 planets in Capricorn, including his Venus, and Neptune is aspecting all of them.

How to find your Personal Year Number for 2016


The 2016 Year Number

To get what the energy of 2016 is going to be all about, you simply add the numbers together to get a total.   2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9.

2016 is an 9 number, which is the last number in the cycle and represents completions. This could be very positive completions, in that you finally fulfill that long awaited dream or goal.  In some cases you may finally let go of a person, habit, circumstance or thing that is no longer needed in your life. Because this is a highly spiritual number, you may be attracted to people who have qualities you admire in a spiritual or higher sense. You may decide to pursue your career in a new way, such as teaching it instead of practicing it. It's also about forgiveness, as 9 is also the most spiritual number in the cycle. There should be a big interest in spiritual topics this year in a general sense. 9 is also the number of compassion, and of being a humanitarian.  Think back to 2007 - that was a universal 9 year as well. Something ended or came to fruition or you made a choice in that year that impacted the next 9 years.  I actually ended a relationship that year.

This 9 year  is the general number for the year for everyone, but each person will also have their own Personal Number for the year 2016, and this will be calculated by their birthdate.

An amazing healer and biokinesiologist friend I have gave me a wonderful visualization for not just the New Year, but for any time. Give yourself a colour, any colour you like. Let's say its pink. Then you visualize that pink colour going out on your path in front of you for the next year. And on the path you see love, and peace, and joy, and abundance and prosperity and calm and passion and all the things that you want in your life for the coming year. What she has found in her professional practice, is that people who do that end up with amazing eyesight! She found that people who are afraid of what the future holds can only look a few months ahead, and their eyes are not as healthy as a result. It's like they are afraid to 'look' too far down the road. This exercise makes them feel great about their future, which in turns makes them happy to look that far ahead, which in turn enhances their eyesight.  I've been doing it myself, and it makes me feel so much calmer about the future, and now I know its helping my eyesight too.

Your Personal Year Number

It's easy to find your Personal Year Number.  You take the day and the month you were born, and add it to the number of the current year - in this case its 9.   So, for example if you were born on June 9th,

   6  (birth month)
+ 9  (birth day)
+ 9  (current year)
 = 24

You would reduce that 24 to a single digit, so 2 + 4 = 6.
This person is in a 6 Personal Year.

Another example:  If you were born on November 27, you would take 11 (the 11th month), and add it to 27, and then add that to the year number of 9.

   11  (birth month)
+ 27 (birth day)
+ 9   (current year)
= 47

Then reduce it to a single digit, so 4 + 7 = 11.  Then reduce it again 1 + 1 = 2.
This person is in a 2 Personal Year.

If you get the number 11 or 22, these are considered to be Master Numbers, and these years are considered special.

Personal Year 1 -  the year of new beginnings!  This is the start of a whole new cycle, and you'll be laying the groundwork for the next 9 years ahead. It's an excellent time to get involved in a new love relationship, or to experience a renewal of your current one.  Some may take a second honeymoon. It's a year of major changes, job improvements and independence. Travel can provide a way to enjoy life in a new way.

Personal Year 2 - the year of companionship, harmony and teamwork.  The number 2 relates to the Moon, and so is a year of more patience, tact, cooperation and understanding.  It's a more gentle and artistic year. The Moon is also changeable, so there may be a change of residence under this yearly number, or even a change in your workplace. This is the year when people tend to form relationships of all kinds, including friendships and love relationships. They don't want to go it alone. You're going to feel more nurturing and emotional under this influence.  There may be trips across the water.

Personal Year 3 - the year of communications, expansion, mental energy and short journeys. You're busy this year, and you may be doing more writing or talking, or using more of your creative skills.  This is the year for having more fun in your love relationships - for flirting and for socializing.  You could become quite the social butterfly, or at least lean more that way than usual.  This isn't really the year to make serious commitments in your love life. Trips tend to be on the shorter side, or you may take a lot of road trips or weekend getaways.

Personal Year 4 - the year of security and of laying down foundations.  This is another Saturn year, so getting ahead professionally is important to you, except this is a more of a 'roll up your sleeves and get to work' kind of year. You're laying the groundwork for your future and getting organized. You're likely taking on extra responsibilities this year, whether at work or with aging parents or perhaps signing a mortgage etc.. Love relationships may begin with someone older or with someone who has authority or power. Travel tends to be more work related.

Personal Year 5 - the year of change, travel and expansion. You're looking for more freedom and fun this year.  It's actually an amazing year for love and romance and you'll likely have plenty of opportunity that way if you're single and looking. If you're already involved you're going to want to do more travel with your partner or experience new things together.  In some cases people will break up under this influence if things aren't going well. It's a great cycle for making changes in your job and for pursuing your ideas.

Personal Year 6 - a year focused on love, family and domestic happenings. This is a Venus year, so is concerned with developing or keeping harmony within the home and within your personal relationships.  This is one of the best cycles for marriage and commitment, as well as for pregnancy, birth, buying a home or anything that denotes settling down. It's also a very social year, and a year for beautifying your environment. Advancement comes through social contacts.

Personal Year 7 - a more spiritual year, focused on inner growth and personal well-being. You may want more quiet or private time this year, or at least more time to yourself.  It's a good time to identify and eliminate any self defeating behaviours.  This cycle isn't really about relationships per say, but more about figuring out how you feel about relationships - which again requires more time for introspection. This is the year to take care of body, mind and spirit.

Personal Year 8 - as stated above, this is a year for achievement, power, abundance, prosperity and for manifesting.  You could make big moves this year and achieve recognition for what you do.  It's a powerful year professionally, but also in whatever area you choose to focus on.  As a Saturn year, this could be a 'reap what you sow' kind of year as well. A debt or obligation from the past that was never dealt with could reappear, or people from that past could get in touch. Love relationships tend to either move forward with commitment, or end because you don't see a future with someone.  This is not a 'coasting' kind of year.

Personal Year 9 - the last year in the cycle, this is the year for completions and endings. This could be very positive completions, in that you finally fulfill that long awaited dream or goal.  In some cases you may finally let go of a person, habit, circumstance or thing that is no longer needed in your life.  Because this is a highly spiritual number, you may be attracted to people who have qualities you admire in a spiritual or higher sense. You may decide to pursue your career in a new way, such as teaching it instead of practicing it.

Personal Year 11 - this year still has the vibration of the 2 (1 +1), but its special because its a master number.  There is a deeper spiritual awareness with this yearly number, and you may have your own special 'ah ha' moment this year. You're more compassionate, more idealistic, more altruistic and more of a humanitarian.  There is also an element of recognition with this number as well so you may become known for your good works. In love relationships you feel attracted to those who also embody those same traits of compassion etc.

Personal Year 22 -  this year still has the vibration of the 4 (2 +2), but its special because its a master number.  This is an extraordinary year when you may do extraordinary things. It's more of a detached year when you are focused on humanity as a whole as opposed to one on one love relationships, unless you find someone who shares these same goals.  You have lofty goals and plans, probably involving helping others, and you can achieve these goals and plans. There will be major accomplishments this year,

Your Personal Month Number

Yes, you can also find your own Personal Month number, and even your Personal Day number!  To find your Personal Month number, start with your Personal Year Number, and then add a number for each month starting with January until you reach the month you want to know about.

For example, lets say its your Personal Year number of 3.   And this is January, the first month, so you add a 1 to the 3, and you get 4.  So January is a 4 month for this person.   And then Feb will be a 5 month, and March will be a 6 month, and so on.

Another example.  Let's say your Personal Year number is an 8.   And you want to know what April will bring.  So, start with the 8 and then add one number for each month.  January will be a 9 month, Feb will be a 1 month (because we start at 1 again after 9), March will be a 2 month, and then April will be a 3 month.

You can apply the same meanings for the Personal month numbers as for the Personal year number - just realize that the influence is a bit weaker because its only 4 weeks instead of a year.

If you really want to go deep, you can get your Personal Day number too.  Just take your personal month number....say its a 3, and then add the day to it.  So, if January is your personal month of 3, and today is the 9th, then add 3 + 9, = 12. Reduce again to 3.  This is your 3 day, and you can expect a 3 vibration to the day with 3 happenings and events.

Astro Fertility

Ancient astrology says that a woman’s ability to conceive increases dramatically when the Sun and the Moon in the sky are at the same angle as when the woman was born.  This knowledge goes way back to Egyptian astrologers, and many astrologers today still use this old wisdom.  So, if you were born on a first quarter moon, then you will have maximum fertility every month at the first quarter moon - specifically 24 hours before and a few hours after the exact moment of your lunar phase return.

This ancient astrological theory has been revived and even proven by Slovakian scientist and astrologer Dr. Eugen Jonas in the 1960s. Through his testing he found that a woman has a ‘spontaneous ovulation’ when the Sun and Moon in the sky are at the same angle as when she was born. He found that fertility is unusally high for the 24 hours prior to the exact time of this Lunar Phase Return, and for 12 hours after. Many western doctors haven't yet picked up on this, simply because Western medicine has unfortunately not progressed to the point of being open to these kinds of influences. 

So a woman actually has 2 chances per month to get pregnant! The first being her natural ovulation time, usually about halfway through the cycle.  And the second during her Lunar Phase Return. If these two times happen to overlap, then the chances of conceiving are very, very high. This works even if one’s lunar phase return happens during menstruation! This explains why many women get pregnant just before, during and after their menses, which are times traditionally thought of as safe. These times are also important to know if you are trying to avoid getting pregnant.

You can also go one step further and determine the sex of the child based on the sign of the moon during conception. If conception takes place when the Moon is in a male sign - Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius, the odds of having a boy are very high. Female signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. 

The Moon symbolically represents women, childbirth and menstrual cycles, so it stands to reason that tracking the lunar cycles would be a huge key in getting pregnant.

1,111 oz diamond - a cosmic wink

I recently wrote a post about 11:11, and how it's been seen more frequently all over the world. 11:11 represents the awakening of consciousness on the planet. It's also called' The Shift'. To read more about what it means, check out my post
Have you been seeing 11:11 a lot lately?

A diamond was recently found in a mine in Botswana - the largest diamond found in over a century. It's also interesting that it's a diamond. Diamonds reflect all colours of the rainbow, which in turn represent the 7 main chakras. Diamond is a very sovereign stone, long-believed to carry divine energies. That is why they were often set into crowns, to enhance inner vision, intuition and connection to Spirit. Diamonds not only clear one's energy, but it also allows a person to connect more easily to higher frequences. (from The Spiritual Meaning of Diamonds)

Which is exactly what this cosmic awakening is all about.!!!  So, here we have it again. I love these little 'cosmic winks' from the Universe, reminding us of what is really going on and to stay mindful.

Justin Trudeau - the astrology of our new Prime Minister

Justin Trudeau just became the second youngest Prime Minister of Canada at age 43. He's the first born son of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who was the Prime Minister of Canada for 16 years from 1968 to 1984.

Besides politics being in his blood, what does Justin's astrology chart say about his ability to lead a country?

Justin was born on Christmas Day in 1971. He's a Capricorn Sun, Virgo rising with an Aries Moon.

This is a chart of a man who is absolutely made to be a leader! First of all, he's a Capricorn Sun. Capricorn is the sign of authority, leadership and government. Capricorns always rise to the top like cream in whatever endeavour they choose to pursue.  That Capricorn Sun is square powerful Pluto. Wow! This is quite a combination.  This shows that he does not shy away from challenges, and may even thrive on them. That Sun (father) square Pluto in Libra also points to his having a very powerful father, and interestingly enough his father Pierre Trudeau had a Sun in Libra.  Justin's Ascendant is 3 degrees of Virgo, and his Sun at 3 Capricorn exactly trines that Ascendant. He actually is who he seems to be.

His Moon is in warrior Aries in the 8th house. Aries Moons fight for what they believe is right, and they have no time or patience for subterfuge or dishonesty. Aries is the most honest sign of the zodiac, mostly because they are so in the moment in their feelings. The 8th house is all about change and transformation, so he's here to make a difference. That Moon is exactly oppose changeable Uranus, so he's not kidding when he talks about making a significant change in this country. That aspect is also an aspect of being separated from those he loves. It speaks to his turbulent childhood when his mom had some mental health issues and he was separated from her for a while, as well as the ups and downs of being the child of a powerful man, as well as dealing with the death of his brother. (Actually, Margaret Trudeau used to babysit my best friend here in North Vancouver, way back in the day) That moon in passionate Aries trines Jupiter in expansive Sagittarius. He has big ideas, and lofty ideals and he truly believes that he can achieve them. I have no doubt that he can as well.

He has responsible Saturn - the ruler of his Sun - sitting right at the top of his chart. Saturn here says he is seen as 'the one in charge', as this position denotes his reputation as well as his career.  In this position it also says that he takes his position very seriously and is bound and determined to do what is right. It's an ambitious placement, but you'll find its a very common placement in the royal family, as they were born into duty and responsibility, just as Justin was in a sense. Saturn here shows someone who is very ambitious and hard-working and perhaps even methodical in his approach to achieving his dream. Saturn here wants to be at the top of the heap. That Saturn squares his Asc, showing that its part of who he is, and that he'll always be trying to prove himself in some way, possibly because of his father, or trying to live up to his father. His Saturn is also retrograde. This is usually the position of someone who's father was not there for him in some way, and leaves the person with the sense of having to prove himself, or prove to himself that he is capable and worthy. His Capricorn Sun and Saturn retrograde tells me he has a lot of self doubt actually, but its being channeled in a positive way. When you think about it, who would really want to take on the job of running a country? Who would really want that kind of pressure, and not great pay? Someone who has something to prove, which means they almost all have strong Saturn in there somewhere.

He also has idealistic Neptune exactly square his Ascendant. This can be the aspect of someone who has rose-coloured glasses on and who doesn't see reality as it is. With all his earth, this is not really a problem for Justin, and that Neptune just adds to his sense of idealism and hope for a better future. It's the perfect combination - he has the vision, as well as the practical earth to ground it all into reality.

His North Node is in Aquarius in the 6th house and is conjunct Venus. The North Node is like a destiny point - it points to where one is supposed to go in this lifetime. And if one goes there, then the Universe supports you.  In Aquarius, his destiny is wrapped up in doing things 'for the people', and in the 6th house of duty. His South Node is in Leo, so in a past life he was already royalty or a leader in some respect, so he already knows how to do that. In this lifetime, he can use that talent, he can springboard it forward and use it to be there for the people.  Conjunct Venus in Aquarius, it shows that the public love him, and will continue to love him and support him. Especially women. And look at the guy - he has movie star good looks, which does not hurt his cause at all. 

He has a singleton planet in water - his Mars in Pisces. Singletons have a lot of power, simply because all the water energy has to siphon out through one planet. This makes his Mars quite powerful. It also adds a nice touch of softness to his tough chart. Mars in Pisces people care! This is a sensitive placement and shows that he cares about the plights and feelings of the people. It is also a placement of fighting for the underdog.

His Virgo rising speaks to his methodical approach and strategic planning. Yes, his chart is quite earthy, with Cap Sun, Virgo rising and Saturn at the top. Perfect for politics. And he has a nice hefty dose of idealism and passion thrown in to make him want to actually do what he says he will do - create positive change. I like his chart very much.

How does Justin connect to the chart of Canada?

Justin's Moon in Aries is right on the Ascendant of the chart of Canada! He speaks to and connects with us. His Moon is also conjunct Canada's Neptune. We glamorize him, or we connect to his sense of idealism and hope. He actually has a lot of aspects to the chart of Canada, showing that he resonates with the country.

How will Justin get along with the US gov't? Well, its very interesting that Justin's Sun-Moon midpoint is 25 Aquarius.  The US chart's Moon is 25 degrees of Aquarius. The Moon of a nation's chart denotes the people of the country. All the US presidents have significant planets at 25 Aquarius, because it shows they resonate with the people. I think this shows that the US people are really going to like Justin - a lot.  But the gov't may not. Justin's Uranus is conjunct the US's Saturn, which is their government.  They're not going to like Justin's agenda for change, which means he may not be playing ball with the criminals and bullies that are the US gov't. Thank goodness. It won't be easy for Justin Trudeau, but he is not part of the Harper/Canadian nazi/oil and gas mafia. Canada has become a close knit part of the US matrix since the early 1990s, and Justin Trudeau has a long road ahead of him to keep distancing himself from all that. But he is obviously determined, and we all want him to succeed. The US may try to sabotage that of course.  However, the charts also show that Justin can be the spark that gets the ball rolling in terms of positive change for the US as he may inspire the people of that country too.

Moonbathing - where one actually sits outside and views the moon -  helps to balance all aspects of the body. It's incredibly healing.  Just as absorbing the rays of the sun is important to the body, so is absorbing the rays of the moon.  The Sun is more action oriented, and the moon is more receptive. Moonbathing helps one to become more sensitive, more receptive, and more still. It activates 'yin', and can help to balance someone who has too much 'yang' or too much fire or anger.

 During a full moon, the body's healing potential is at its peak, and the body's energy flow is activated and harmonized. Moonbathing accentuates that. Moonbathing also stimulates the pineal gland, a tiny gland that helps to regulate the sleeping/waking cycle, as well as many other body rhythms. When we go outside to see the moon, our bodies can more easily adjust when we are physically outside in nature picking up nature's signals, and visibly seeing the moon with the naked eye.

So, get thee outside and bathe in the moon! Or, at least gaze at it through an open window.

Saturn enters Sagittarius today!

Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2013. and now leaves it for good on Sept 17th.!  Everyone was affected by this intense transit in some way, although some more than others.

We had a brief preview of Saturn moving into Sagittarius earlier this year, but then he dipped back into Scorpio for the summer, just to bring one last push to whatever it was we were working on for the last 2.5 years.

Sometimes its easier to see what something was about when we are able to get the bird's eye view and look back on it.

What happened in the fall of 2013?  You embarked on a mission of transformation, letting go or healing in some way at that time. Saturn in Scorpio demands we go deep, and we emerge healed in some way at the end of it.  Many of us lost loved ones and now we're moving on and dealing with that loss in our lives.  In effect, everyone is now moving on in a new way, with some sort of transformation and healing having taken place on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.

Saturn in Sagittarius is a much lighter energy thank goodness.  For more info on what you can expect, check my post Saturn in Sagittarius.

Sagittarian Sun, Moon and Asc people are really going to feel this transit the most, or anyone who has personal planets in Sag.

Saturn enters Sag today, and goes forward through to 16.24 degrees of Sag before he turns retrograde.  The thing with Saturn transits, is that they are in effect from the moment that they move forward toward aspecting a point in your chart. So, for example if you have your Sun at 14 degrees of Sag, guess what, you're going to feel that Saturn starting tonight!!!  Yes, Saturn is interesting that way.  Some transits you only feel when they get very close to the planet in your chart, but not Saturn.  Saturn starts from day one.  However, if you have a significant point at 17 degrees of Sag, you won't feel Saturn until later next year because he goes retrograde before he hits it.

So, for everyone Sagittarius born from  Nov 22nd to Dec 8th, you're in the midst of a Saturn transit to your Sun starting tonight.  You may even get a little symbolism tonight or tomorrow as to what this transit may mean for you - sort of like Saturn saying hello. In general, Saturn transits bring more work and we take om more responsibility - this can be when someone buys a house, or gets married or get pregnant.  It can be when we take on that big project at work that requires long hours, or when we start our own business. It can be when we need to start taking more responsibility for aging parents, or simply when we start to look toward consolidating for our future. Saturn can also show us where we need to pull back, as well as make us accountable if we've been treating others, or even ourselves, unfairly.  Saturn doesn't let anyone get away with much of anything, which is why Saturn represents authority.

Some famous Sagittarians who are going to be feeling this Saturn transit starting tonight are:

Scarlett Johansson
Britney Spears
Miley Cyrus (backlash?)
Tyra Banks
Ian Somerhalder
Julianne Moore
Amanda Seyfried
Ben Stiller
Katherine Heigl
Christina Applegate
Ed Harris
Marisa Tomei
Bette Midler
Anna Faris

As well as some Sun in Geminis who will have Saturn opposing their Sun:

Angelina Jolie
Nicole Kidman
Colin Farrell
Morgan Freeman
