Five Things to be Thankful For This Thanksgiving Week

Counting your blessings? Here are five more things to be thankful for this week:

1) Mercury joins with Saturn for the third and last time today Monday, November 25. This depressing influence has been playing in the background all month and will finally breathe it's last today. On the larger screen this aspect has been responsible for all the Obamacare computer glitches and also the President's abysmal ratings in the recent polls. In our individual lives this frustrating aspect has effected all things Mercury, particularly work and trips. If you've misplaced your tools or are wondering if you should even try to drive all the way to Grandma's on Thursday, you should be feeling much more optimistic later on tonight.

2) The next big thing to be thankful for happens Wednesday evening November 27. Mercury will be making a friendly trine to Jupiter meaning no matter how crazy the travel conditions with so many people trying to make it home for the next day's festivities, folks should still be in a good mood on the road. 

3) On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day the Moon will be in Libra making a t-square to the on going Pluto/Uranus stand off. Ordinarily we would worry the Moon activating these two warriors would create some sort of holocaust but here the Moon is in the sign of diplomacy so there's hope she'll keep things peaceful, in fact she might even be able to negotiate some sort of resolution between these bullies! Certainly it's a lovely omen for all the relatives being on their best behavior at the turkey table.

4) Not only will the Moon be in rational Libra on Thanksgiving Day, she'll also be making a pleasant sextile to the Sun in Sagittarius. This combo helps calmer heads prevail if things get a bit rowdy - which they might because...

5) Venus will oppose Jupiter at 7:00 a.m. Thanksgiving morning. Ordinarily oppositions create conflict but when the two planets of blessings and abundance connect the only danger is in overdoing a good thing. Sounds like diets don't stand a chance this week but maybe we can limit ourselves to seconds? Well then, how about thirds? 

Whatever you decide the stars are wishing you and yours a very happy holiday - and so am I!

Sun in Sagittarius + Jupiter in Cancer = Home on The Range

Each week when I sit down to write this blog I want to start out by saying, "Congratulations Survivors!" It's been such a roller coaster ride this year I think we all deserve a round of applause just for still being here. Fortunately this week the Sun will leave intense psycho-crazy Scorpio and breakthrough to easy going optimistic Sagittarius. As a further bonus Jupiter the ruler of Sagittarius continues a bit longer in Cancer, the sign of home and family meaning all these enhanced Sagittarian good vibrations are going to be first expressed in the home - Jupiter in Cancer - and then the enthusiasm expands to the larger world - Sun in Sagittarius.

To consciously support this growth process here are some key steps you can take:

Connect with family:
Sun in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Cancer's goal is to expand the sense of family to ultimately include everything and everyone, to create the Family of Man in the world. Imagine if the love between a father and son were mirrored in the relationships between a boss and the employee or think how good it could be if politicians were as honest with the public as a faithful husband and wife, or just in general how wonderful life would be if we all treated each other like brothers and sisters?!
 Fact is, this is how it is already but unfortunately because the relationships in our homes are often so messed up that when these patterns expand into the larger world the result is not a happy family but one great big very dysfunctional one. So first if we're going to use Jupiter in Cancer and the Sun in Sag to create a better world we must improve relationships in our immediate circle. This month we have a great opportunity to do this with Thanksgiving coming up. 

Do the work that is closest:
While our aim is to create a larger sense of family, the journey begins with doing something small. Jupiter and Sagittarius rule publishing - how about sending out some really fun emails to your nearest and dearest? Something up-beat and useful to counteract all the shock and awe the public news shows are always pushing. 

Set boundaries:
I used to be frustrated with my pals who's parents wouldn't let them play on Sunday or who wouldn't even answer the phone during the dinner hour. Now older and wiser I recognize how much precious time gets lost to outside intrusions. Jupiter is The Great Protector. In Cancer he's there to support you if you dare to protect your family time.

Celebrate family:
The Sun and Jupiter rule fun and parties and this month the best ones are all about close friends and comfort food - a great omen for having an unusually successful Thanksgiving next week.

Family is all about shared history passed on through stories:
Jupiter is wisdom and in Cancer the sign ruling History there's sure to be lots of stories to tell around the family dinner table.

Gobble gobble!

Two Weeks Until Thanksgiving - Time IS Speeding Up!

Whew, turkey time is upon us again already - can there be any doubt time is speeding up? Seriously, didn't this year seem to flash past? Next year is expected to spin by even faster so at least for this week let's take a moment to slow down and look at the map for what's ahead...

There's a very unusual line up of planets coming up over the next ten days. Be aware of what's happening and don't waste the opportunities..

The Moon is entering Aries Wednesday and making a harsh square to Venus in Capricorn before it squares Uranus, the planet that rules electricity. There's a rumor circulating that our government is going to be testing our electric grid to see how the country would fare if a terrorist attack were to disrupt our energy system. I think that's just a Mercury-Neptune news fantasy but the story coming at this time does fit with the line up of planets underscoring that this would be a good time for all of us to consider how dependent we are on Capricorn Government and what we need to do to shore up our Uranus ability to be independent. The Moon then goes on to square Pluto which could manifest as power struggles and finally it makes a harsh aspect to extravagant Jupiter. People fighting for supplies and selfishly grabbing all they can get for themselves? If you've been toying with the idea of investing in food storage you may find yourself feeling really paranoid the next couple of days. Don't let the ad-men manipulate you into buying disaster preparedness supplies you'll never need.

Thursday Venus squares Uranus - outgrown relationships are going to be severely tested as Venus in Capricorn demands fulfilling commitments but Uranus in Aries says "I gotta be me, I gotta be free!"

These aspects are unnerving but the real tests are coming up Friday November 15. The Moon will enter Taurus, the sign ruling the physical world - the time of month when thoughts become things. Plan your day consciously:

Friday November 15:

The Moon sextiles Neptune Friday morning. Visualize what you really want.

Venus joins with Pluto Friday afternoon. Major changes start happening.

The Moon opposes Mercury Friday afternoon. Opportunity to redefine what we're seeking.

The Moon sextiles Jupiter Saturday night. Now feel joy and success.

Final aspect - Full Moon as the Moon opposes the Sun Sunday morning. It all comes out in the open. If you took advantage of these energies you should be feeling really blessed by the results!

To sum up - the beginning of the week we become aware of how our feelings may have been manipulated by others but at the end of the week we have a chance to re-write the script the way WE want it.

Thoughts become things - choose the good ones,

The Question You Should Never Ask a Psychic and The One You Must.

  When you call me for a reading I take pride in giving you information that is real, useful and worth your hard earned $. Do you want to know how he/she really feels about you? If your job is secure? Are you going to win at Bingo tonight? No problem, astrology, tarot and clairvoyant insight can answer all of these questions with an amazing degree of accuracy. But there is one question that only you can answer:

Is he my soul-mate?

Oh puleeze.
I think some Hollywood adman made up this one. First, if a partner is your soul-mate you will know it. The co-incidences, the synergy, the compelling need to be together will be so strong you wont even have time to consult a psychic. But more than that, I sigh when I hear this question because of the underlying misconception - that is, people think "soul-mate" means there is only one partner suitable for us on this earthly plane and that we must search high and low to find them. Furthermore, the fantasy continues with the idea that when we do find them the fit will be perfect - like we'll never have another bad hair day again for the rest of our lives...

So what do I tell people when they ask me where will I find him and is this one is The One?
First, I need to tell you, you don't have to "search" for a soul-mate. Be yourself and make yourself available. Wear the clothes YOU like, listen to the music YOU ressonate with. This will attract your life partner to you even on a desert island.
Remember, however, even when you do connect with Mr. Right this doesn't mean the road ahead will be smooth. The truth is, our soul-mate is really our soul-mirror. Thus if we are kind, compassionate, loving people then the person we are attracted to will most likely have similar values and the relationship should be a good one. On the other hand, if we haven't quite reached perfection yet then most likely the Mr. Right who mirrors us will have a few flaws too - just to push our buttons and spur us on to greater consciousness. For example, if we ourselves aren't respectful of the promises we make it's likely we'll fall in love with someone similarly inclined to bend the rules - so if you're willing to flirt with a married man, dollars to donuts you'll find your soul-mate appears in this lifetime as a married man along with all the hurt and drama that entails. Thus finding a soul-mate is not a guarantee of happiness, in fact it could mean opening the door to heartache! 

I prefer to skip the soul-mate question and look at the astrological charts while asking, "What is the potential for this friendship?" He might very well be your soul-mate but if he's married or a confirmed bachelor or somehow else unavailable, it's not likely you came together in this lifetime to share a traditional marriage. In that case, an astrological chart can tell you how to make the best use of the connection. I explained this a while back to a woman who had met the man of her dreams in church - along with his wife and three children. We looked at their charts and they had a lot of strong planets in the 7th house, the house of marriage = obviously, they had a great connection for some sort of partnership. But "Partnership Issues" doesn't necessarily mean they are destined to be marriage partners, only that this would be the arena where they could most easily bond. Since the man already had a partner, I advised her to be the best friend to the wife. She agreed to give that strange suggestion a try. I heard from her recently and she reported that once the euphoric feelings for the man had calmed down she discovered she and the wife really did like each other and furthermore, while the sense of joy when ever she saw Him continued, she also saw where the wife - a gourmet cook and devoted mother - was probably a better partner than she could ever be. Thus while it very well may be she and this fellow had spent many previous lifetimes together, fortunately the woman recognized that in this lifetime they had work of a different sort to do.

This brings us to the question you really should ask a psychic:

What sort of work am I best suited for?
In today's uncertain economy I've been getting a lot more calls about money and career issues. Astrology can be a wonderful tool for pin-pointing not just when and where you might be working next, but more specifically, what work you should be doing. When you know what you came here to do - and do it! - you not only will find your bliss, but most likely find your Soul-Mate too.

Give me a call and let's find yours!
