Mercury Retrograde August 12 to September 5 2017

July 17th, 2017
Share Button

Mercury retrograde takes place in less than a month. It’s an opportunity to observe the cyclical nature of life, and you can also diminish the risk in your everyday life if you’re aware of the usual challenges.

This astrological phenomenon typically includes problems launching new endeavors, communication misunderstandings, and general complications and delays. Perception tends to be less accurate than usual, so proceed cautiously with important decisions and contracts.

Revisiting the past is common too. It’s an auspicious time to develop new solutions to old problems of all sorts, along with finally letting go of past issues. You may encounter delays and blocks with new undertakings during Mercury retrograde, but you’ll find already established projects, activities, or ventures flowing more smoothly.

See this page for a thorough list of Mercury retrograde features and a general timeline.

As mentioned in the linked information above, the approximate three-week period leading up to Mercury retrograde is usually more troublesome than the actual retrograde period. 

Mercury retrograde August—September 2017 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 8-12-2017 at 6:00 p.m. PDT, 11 degrees 38 minutes Virgo.
  2. Mercury goes direct 9-5-2017 at 4:29 a.m. PDT, 28 degrees 25 minutes Leo.

The bar graph in this post includes the August–September 2017 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrology events.

Lunar Eclipse August 7 2017

A lunar eclipse occurs August 7, 2017. It’s exact by degree at 11:10 a.m. PDT, 15 degrees 25 minutes Aquarius.

This lunar eclipse takes place in about five weeks, though three to four weeks before the eclipse and a few days after is approximately the window of time that eclipse-related issues manifest. Thus, avoid excessive risk during that period.

See this blog post for more information about limiting your overall risk during an eclipse.

Judgment tends to be skewed during eclipse periods, particularly during lunar eclipses. Be more cautious with weighty decisions, avoid impulsiveness and reckless behavior, and remember that things may not be quite as they appear.

Hidden Compatibility Factor is Measurable

June 19th, 2017
Share Button

Fundamental human compatibility has more to do with factors other than mundane matters such as interests, background, physical appearance, hobbies, and career. The underpinnings are largely due to unseen, esoteric dynamics.

I would have been skeptical of such a notion prior to twenty-plus years of seeing this phenomenon in real life examples countless times.

Extremes in compatibility illustrate my thesis. You meet someone new and from the very beginning it’s either mutual rapport, or mutual distaste.

Conventional science explains such a scenario through fears, defenses and biases. For example, person A is prejudiced against those like person B, and likewise with person B.

However, I’m referring to the situation where person A and person B aren’t biased whatsoever; they simply naturally despise each other for unexplained reasons. Or, the opposite, they can’t get enough of each other.

You’ve likely found yourself in this situation before, and it’s too easy to blame the other person for the innate strife in the connection, in the case of terrible compatibility.

But if you pay attention, you’ll notice a unique compatibility between every two-person arrangement and there’s nothing you can do to alter it.

Fantastic compatibility either exists between two people, or it doesn’t, and it’s measurable. I’m speaking of innate compatibility, before you factor in any red-flag personality issues, physical attraction, and different types and levels of intelligence, including emotional intelligence.

Affinity between two people could be inherently magnificent, but subconscious fears and defenses such as vanity, resentment, dishonesty, domineering tendencies and others could ruin the prospects.

Handwriting analysis is my favorite way to identify personality red flags. Extreme personality challenges such as those listed above, or drug and alcohol problems, for example, make harmonious bonds impossible even for those with fantastic rapport.

You may be fortunate to have an excellent connection with your partner, symbolized by the astrology and numerology patterns, yet one of you is an intellectual and the other is rooted in emotions and feeling. No connection is perfect, but similar mentalities and emotional aptitudes further enhance relationships.

Every person you interact with, whether it’s business, social, or romantic uniquely harmonizes with you, and the deep-rooted compatibility can be accurately illustrated on a scale of 1-100, for example.

Some people just click, others don’t, and nobody is to blame. Unless you want to torture yourself, it’s a good idea to avoid the “anyone can be compatible as long as you have similar interests and try to get along” point of view.

The exquisite, enduring feeling that fosters a mutual sense of self-assurance exists between two people or it doesn’t. The simple truth of the matter is that the more difficult your compatibility, the harder you must work to make your relationship work.

You have the option of determining compatibility before you spend years trying to fix something that isn’t fixable. Identifying innate compatibility, and red flag personality issues, can greatly reduce your risk before it’s too late.

The Hidden Cause of Success and Failure

June 5th, 2017
Share Button

Success is entirely attributed to hard work and luck. At least that’s what you’ve been conditioned to believe.

I always recommend setting realistic goals and working diligently, ceaselessly toward your aspirations. But my findings tell me the underpinnings of success are transcendent and have far less to do with mere personal qualities and luck than with forces beyond your control.

Before anyone accuses me of fatalism or recommending a passive, wallflower approach to life, allow me to explain my theory.

Fifty talented corporate executives all possess about the same level of intelligence, self-discipline, objectivity, logical thinking ability, decisiveness, analytical ability, discretion, and all are emotionally balanced and stable. In other words, they all lack red flag personality traits that typically lead to failure. All fifty exhibit strong leadership traits. Each one is a high-achiever and possesses the same ability to be an independent, successful business owner.

All fifty leave the corporate world at about the same time to be independent entrepreneurs. Ten years later, 25 are succeeding wildly, 15 are doing okay, and 10 failed miserably and returned to climbing the corporate ladder.

The successes and failures, in these instances, have nothing to do with market forces; all fifty entered growing industries, under various thriving economies around the world. All fifty are good decision-makers.

You may call it luck, but I refer to luck as personal fate disguised. No matter how resourceful, smart, quick thinking, intuitive, persuasive, or hard working you are, you can’t cheat fate. In other words, there’s a lot in life you have no control over, including the actions of other people. Unfortunately for those 10 washouts, their unique predestination dictated defeat in that area of their life.

Give credit where credit is due—the winners earned their triumphs. My findings show you are 100% responsible for your personal fate. Sudden opportunities and advantages, chance meetings, and similar circumstances aren’t arbitrary and undeserved. Call it cosmic payback, all part of the tapestry of predetermination.

Life’s rewards extend well beyond finances—family relations, friends, love life, and more. A person typically has wonderful predetermination in one or a few areas, but not all. It’s very rare that someone “has it all.” You can’t replicate personal fate, but you can have an equal playing field to seek the opportunities you desire. Life isn’t supposed to be fair, but you can make the most of it by doing your best. Please note: as we say in the above linked article, “It’s not always the case that a person is enduring karmic retribution for past life dark deeds; sometimes the terrible experience is for other reasons, such as to help bring awareness to the world, or stop it from happening to others in the future.”

Fatalism is the belief that you have no control over your life’s circumstances. While I believe at least 75% of your core life circumstances and events are predetermined, I’m not a fatalist; I’m a realist.

The belief that there is much in life you can’t control is a sign of humility. This belief, in conjunction with divination and personality and compatibility analysis, allows you to capitalize on the rewarding parts of life and more easily deal with life’s challenges.

Astrology: Why Time and Location of Beginnings Matter

May 23rd, 2017
Share Button

Conventional wisdom contends that people don’t have a choice of the location and time they are born. It’s a reasonable assertion, from an earthly standpoint.

But my long-term findings tell me people are born at the exact location and time in accordance with their personal fate. Thus, on a soul level, before incarnating, the person does have a choice, and it has nothing to do with the likes and dislikes of their current personality.

Before someone injects class warfare into this topic and chides me for blaming people for being born into poverty, that isn’t what I’m doing.

I merely report my findings and they show that personal fate (numerous key, life circumstances) is reflected in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts. A person may or may not like my findings based on his or her birth time and location, but he or she may also not like the fact that night is dark, winter is cold, rain is wet, or an infinite number of other life circumstances and situations. Such is life.

The world is replete with people who were born into poverty yet went on to live a successful and happy life, with or without wealth.

The world is also replete with people who were born into opulence and lived the riches to rags story. The failures may be blamed on early abuse or bad luck, but from a spiritual standpoint, fate trumps logic; a person ends up where they end up at the end of their life because that’s what their personal fate dictates.

A common argument about birth times and places goes like this: “But he could have been born and hour earlier or later, and how do you know the birth minute is correct?”

The fact is (for verified birth times), he wasn’t born an hour earlier or later, and the patterns in his comprehensive charts reflect his overall lifetime themes impeccably, as everyone’s unique patterns do.

As for the birth minute, I automatically assume the birth minute isn’t correct in all cases. Rectification, a process where you weigh multiple potential approximate times of birth in relation to key themes, starting at birth onward, is necessary for every subject to ensure the highest accuracy.

If the minute of birth isn’t known, I can still work with the approximate time. I can even work with only the known full date of birth to ferret out approximate key life conditions, though the closest to exact time and location is preferred.

Births, and other significant beginnings, such as new relationships, jobs, projects, product launches and others, appear to be arbitrary, but I believe they are predestined.

Once you see, as I do, the regular repetition of astrological and numerological patterns corresponding to people’s life circumstances, it’s easy to stop rejecting the concept of fate.

You have free will, but within the confines of your unique personal fate. I say that to also remind you of the rewarding parts of your life.

My recommendation is to live your life with purpose, set realistic goals, and strive to do your best without worrying if the stars are aligned properly for your objectives. When you do initiate (or plan to) something momentous, whether it’s personal or professional, note the time, location, and date, then look into the astrology and numerology.

Not knowing where a particular river goes doesn’t nullify the fact that the beginning leads to the result. The ancients would have thought of our modern-day satellite technology enabling us to map geography, knowing what to expect miles ahead, as something only available to the gods.

The same concept, mapping, applies to divining the general outline of personal fate: the results are consistently acquired from the same groups of factors. When you see, for example, the same fifty-plus indicators symbolizing financial prosperity over and over, it’s easy to conclude the subject will be prosperous.

Time and location of beginnings do matter in astrology and numerology because the culmination is in the starting point. Knowing the general inclination of the ultimate outcome allows you to greatly limit your risk.

Identifying Weakness in Personality Strengths

May 8th, 2017
Share Button

Everyone’s personality strengths and weaknesses are unique and sometimes personality strengths can become detriments.

Under pressure, facades melt away and the true personality traits emerge; sometimes it takes months or even years to get to know an individual’s real flaws.

Since there isn’t a shortage of miscreants in this world, it’s perfectly acceptable to get to the heart of another person’s character; it’s wise to decrease your vulnerability and exposure to excessive risk by any ethical means possible.

You can’t control the actions of a potential business partner, romantic partner, associate, friend, or adversary, but you can get to know them well enough to minimize your risk.

Below I list five personality strengths and the frequently embedded personality challenges in those strengths.

  1. You can be confident an associate with a high degree of discretion won’t disclose confidential information. However, excessive secretiveness and a lack of transparency can derail even the most successful partnerships.
  2. It’s best if a commission-based salesperson, for example, is motivated mainly by money, but excessive acquisitiveness can be a heavy liability for any organization. Clearly, it can be a big problem in marriages or other partnerships too. It’s a fascinating dynamic of the human mind—people regularly give you pretend reasons for their actions, and even believe those reasons, while the actual motivations are hidden in their subconscious mind. Few things in a person’s core behavior are controlled by conscious motives.
  3. Strong attention to detail is praiseworthy in many professions, but excessive perfectionism makes one miss the bigger picture and impedes success.
  4. People who are easy-going and non-judgmental are usually well-liked. However, a lack of objectivity, and a deficient sense of discernment and critical thinking skills yields poor problem solving ability, thus hinders goal-attainment.
  5. Those with a strong sense of responsibility are appreciated, but in the extreme, a savior complex makes one act to his or her detriment.

Nobody is perfect, though it can save you a lot of time and money to look beyond personas to authentic personality, which can be discerned through various methods, including my unorthodox security investigations.

Astrology Q&A: History, Prediction, and Authenticity of Astrology

April 24th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“I am conducting research on astrology for my 8th grade class. I am expected to interview an adult who is knowledgeable about astrology. I have 6 questions I would like to ask you if you are willing to be interviewed by me. I have included my questions below so that you know the type of information I am looking for. 

  1. Were the Armenians the first to discover astrology?
  2. What makes the earth wobble and how does it wobble? How does it change the way we see the night sky?
  3. How can we use astrology to predict events in the future?
  4. How did the ancient Greeks affect astrology?
  5. How did the early Armenians in Metsamor become so much more advanced than all the other ancient civilizations?
  6. Do you think astrology is a science or is a pseudo science?” 

Answer:
Is your assignment to write a paper on this topic and not an interview? I’ve had several of these types of requests before and when I ask for a confirmation/the teacher’s e-mail address, the student disappears and doesn’t respond.

No matter. I can be of help anyway.

  1. The Armenians may have had something to do with devising astrological signs, but it’s hard to prove. My belief is that several ancient cultures had the makings of the beginning of astrology, but astrology didn’t come together enough to be useful in recorded history until approximately the fifth century BC. Read more about that here.
  1. Regarding Earth wobbling, read about “precession” here.
  1. Astrology, at least the forms I use, can be used to predict personal fate. As for mundane events like earthquakes, economic and financial market troubles or geopolitical events, that’s much more challenging. Read more about prediction and timing of predestined events here.
  1. The ancient Greeks contributed greatly to the science of astrology. See the information linked in #1, above.
  1. You would have to supply links to sources that verify what you suggest about the early Armenians. I can’t answer that for you since it’s not directly related to my areas of expertise. However, if true, one could speculate their civilization was “seeded” by very ancient cultures that predate recorded history, such as a lost civilization unknown to (or not recognized by) mainstream scientists today.
  1. I believe astrology is a science. Note–I’m referring to ancient methodologies, not modern, trivial astrology. Read this blog post and this blog post for more information.

Good luck on your project.

Astrology Q&A: Same House Placements Equals Compatibility?

April 10th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“In the last year, I encountered two other people who have the same house placements as I do. All three of us were born in different years, different continents, different cultures, different altitudes, one is a Cancer, the other is a Libra, and I’m Virgo. Is there any significance to this? What are the odds of someone encountering someone else with the same house placements?”  

Answer:
You mention, “people who have the same house placements,” but offer no other information. How many, and of what type? The actual house placement of a heavenly body is only one factor of many.

The odds of encountering someone with the same Sun sign placement are 1 in 12, as you may realize. There is insubstantial significance to such a connection, considering the fact that the symbolism of any given indicator is made stronger or weakened by the other hundreds of indicators.

By the way, I recommend avoiding Sun sign astrology because it’s ultimately an exercise in futility.

You would find it more worth your while to look for shared heavenly bodies in angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th), which is a prelude to identifying the most potent heavenly body (not the Ascendant ruler) in a person’s comprehensive charts.

You may also find numerology comparisons interesting. The “birthday paradox” shows there’s a 99% probability that two people will share the same month and day of birth with 57 randomly chosen people. The odds of two randomly chosen people born on the same day, month, and year are only about 1 in 28,500.

Astrology Q&A: Astrological Forecasts–Which Ones to Follow

March 27th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“When reading or listening to astrological forecasts, how would I know whether to listen to Sun sign, Moon sign, or my Rising sign?”

Answer:
My advice is to avoid Sun sign, Moon sign, Rising sign, and other, similar astrological forecasts (“horoscopes”). They’re too general to apply to any specific person.

This type of astrology contrasts with ancient methodologies and didn’t exist before the 1900s. It’s comparable to processed junk food, which ultimately only harms you.

If the forecast is instead relaying information about what’s occurring with the Sun or Moon (quite different than standard horoscopes), for example, then that may be a little helpful because you could apply it to your natal patterns, if you’re familiar with them.

Still, hundreds of natal factors form patterns, and the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant are only a small part all the possible patterns. The symbolism of any single factor is either strengthened or mitigated by the energy of the others. Transiting Saturn in Aries, for example, may be part of a complex pattern that symbolizes unwelcome relationship challenges to one person. To the next person, it may have zero relevance.

Although you can get an idea of the cyclical nature of life by tracking basic astrology events, accurate prediction and personality assessment require a highly personalized approach.
