So summer is almost done. Today, September 20, we have a Full Moon in the spiritual/psychic sign of Pisces. Full Moons in each September are the release of the tensions caused by the lessons we faced in August’s Karmic Catch-up/Hungry Ghosts Month (and the lead in to both, which sometimes takes us back to the beginning of summer, if not to March and April).

…and things seem to be going to hell in a hand-basket, both for our world and in our individual lives. There is chaos, regime change and war in Afghanistan; earthquake, hurricane aftermath and gangs taking control in Haiti; climate change bringing high temperatures, fires and more hurricanes; and Covid variants running rampantly unchecked. It’s not just the physical things that are happening. It’s the undercurrent of vibrational change that is only getting stronger. Read More
Welcome to the New Year, the new decade and the new seven-year cycle in the Aquarian Age!
In case you didn’t see it before, I am changing my schedule and rates following the Chinese New Year on January 25. First, I will be reading only the first Saturday of every month between 1 to 6 PM Central Time – no more Saturday readings for the rest of each month. Second, my rates will be going up slightly, which I will announce within the next week or two.
Also, if anyone is trying to book a reading on Saturday, January 25 because it is the Chinese New Year (of the Water Rat), please note that I’ve blocked it off for the moment because I’m going to offer FREE 15 or 30 minute readings on that day between 1 and 6 PM Central time. I’ll open the schedule for bookings on the Monday before. It will be covered in my newsletter that comes out in the early evening on January 20. Read More
Every year there is a time when a majority of planets retrograde in the same month, giving us a crash course in self-assessment. For the last several years, that month was August. That coincided with Feng Shui’s Hungry Ghosts Month, where the spirits of the dead walk the Earth to cause havoc – basically causing Karma to visit in a concentrated dose (which is why I call August the Karmic Catch-up Month).
I previously mentioned that we’re in a retrograde-free time…well, not exactly. Uranus is still retrograde at this moment. It will move direct on January 6 (instead of going retrograde on January 6, as I mistakenly reported). However, many do not consider the outer planets when reporting retrograde activity as their slow movement brings deep, gradual, societal influence rather than personal challenge and upheaval.

A great man passed away on Saturday. Senator John McCain succumbed to cancer at 81. CNN reported: “McCain was a naval bomber pilot, prisoner of war, conservative maverick, giant of the Senate, twice-defeated presidential candidate and an abrasive American hero with a twinkle in his eye. The Arizonan warrior politician, who survived plane crashes, several bouts of skin cancer and brushes with political oblivion, often seemed to be perpetually waging a race against time and his own mortality while striving to ensure that his five-and-a-half years as a Vietnam prisoner of war did not stand as the defining experience of his life.” Read More
We have yet to start the Summer of Retrogrades and already we’re feeling the energy shifts as they heat up. They started in earnest after the Full Moon on May 29. Since then, there is a feeling of sudden disconnectedness, not just from the people around us, but from ourselves, from our place in the world and from our roots in the Earth. It makes us feel, in many cases, completely alone. It isn’t necessarily a strong feeling (although it can be for the many younger souls here now), but it is there. And when we look beyond ourselves, we can see it is shared by pretty much everybody. The intensity of it is growing, preparing us for the opportunities and challenges that this year has in store for us to force our hand into Aquarian Age harmony. Read More
Mars is now direct. Yeah! As of July 1, we are clear of its retrograde energy.
This past holiday weekend in the USA, with its celebrations (drinking, eating and laughing) and the explosions of fireworks, was the perfect release and catharsis to clear up the challenging and oppressive energy of the Mars retrograde lessons. On Tuesday, July 5, it’s like we’re starting the year anew. Read More
Beyond the Chinese New Year 2014
On January 31st, we not only start the Chinese New Year of the Wood Horse, but also seven years of growth (as opposed to the last seven years of purging and releasing). The element of fire – action, initiation – will be a predominant energy to help us along. But it’s important to know that 2014 also brings the challenge of growing pains and the very clear need to stay on our right paths. Read More
