Venus Retrograde October 5 to November 16 2018

September 10th, 2018

Watch out–Venus retrograde occurs soon. Misguided love life decisions are common under Venus retrograde.

New love connections made during Venus retrograde often seem worse after the retrograde period (for valid reasons), and lovers from the past tend to pop up under Venus retrograde.

Avoid impulsive love life decisions during this time because your perspective in love life matters is obscured. Also avoid the typical Venus retrograde unpleasant and futile practice of dwelling on “the one that got away.”

Reassessment of your already established romantic connection—and making needed adjustments–is par for the course during Venus retrograde for those of you already in a relationship.

As you can see in the bar graph in this blog post, Venus is retrograde from October 5, 2018 to November 16, 2018.

It’s only one astrological indicator and it must be supported by other factors in your unique natal and timing patterns to represent key life happenings, but it’s still a reasonable sign to be a little more careful in love life matters.

Venus retrograde lasts, on average, about 40 days, and it occurs about every 1.5 years.

Besides love life, the planet Venus also rules the following: women; gay men; apparel; the building trades, including design and home building; designers of all types; the arts, including dance and music; jewelry and jewelers; glamour; beauty; pleasure; indulgence; bars and drinking; games and gambling; playboys and playgirls; ladies of the evening; romantic commitments.

Learn about basic astrology, including Venus retrograde, and the cyclical nature of life in this blog post.

Venus retrograde isn’t one of the more unfavorable universal astrological afflictions, but it’s worthy of your consideration. Just take it easy in your love life, especially involving impulsive financial commitments.

Four Things That Wreck Compatibility

August 20th, 2018
Share Button

In a perfect world, compatibility would be entirely up to you. All you would need is the willingness to get along with your romantic or business partner.

Alas, in the real world, genuine compatibility isn’t a choice. It also has nothing to do with background, race, entertainment and dietary preferences, and political affiliation.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word compatible in the following way: “Capable of existing together in harmony.”

While the idea of harmony may be largely subjective, the extremes at either end of the spectrum are easy to identify; you’ve likely experienced that magically rewarding connection with another in which it’s effortless bliss. Alternatively, you’ve probably known someone with whom you share horrible compatibility no matter what you do or say—it’s an uphill battle, all discord and discomfort.

Four Things That Ruin Compatibility

  1. Personality red flags make harmonious connections impossible. A person possessing extreme emotional immaturity, vanity, arrogance, bias, argumentativeness, domineering tendencies and, or any other problematic subconscious fear or defense will continually repel potential partners, no matter the innate harmony.

    Severe fears and, or defenses are, for the most part, ingrained; one can’t simply “rise above” these serious attributes, which are most readily witnessed while the subject is under stress or pressure.

  2. Innate, challenging rapport between two people wrecks compatibility every time. You have zero control over inborn compatibility, which is compatibility on a soul level, for lack of a better way to describe it. You are born with it and it exists between you and another person before you ever meet. This is reflected in patterns derived from birth data, including full date of birth, time, and location.

    Extremes in harmony—rewarding or challenging—are easy to identify once you witness, time after time, the natal patterns symbolizing rapport between couples.

    After doing this work professionally since 1997, my view is that this type of compatibility is most important regarding interpersonal harmony.

  3. Personal timing is either your best friend, or enemy in relation to affinity with another person.

    You both may lack serious personality red flags, and enjoy wonderful natal compatibility, but your respective personal timing keeps you apart. Or, you may share numerous timing patterns which serve as the glue for your connection, but when your timing changes, the partnership dissolves.

  4. A bad attitude mars relationships. This is the only point of the four in this piece that you have full control over. Thus, compatibility is, at most, roughly 25% choice.

    Two people may share excellent interpersonal skills, similar levels of agreeableness and outlooks, and a lack of problematic personality traits, yet possess terrible compatibility, in large part due to contrasting natal and timing patterns. The worse the inborn compatibility between two people, the harder they must work to make the relationship tolerable.

Solar Eclipse 8-11-2018

A solar eclipse occurs August 11, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 2:57 a.m. PDT, 18 degrees 41 minutes Leo.

Generally, eclipses symbolize challenges instead of rewards, but solar eclipses are typically easier than lunar eclipses.

As with all universal astrological phenomena, how they blend with your unique natal and timing patterns personalizes the symbolic impact of these phenomena. If supported, solar eclipses normally represent beginnings, and lunar eclipses endings.

In simplest terms, avoid imprudent decisions and risky behavior during and near eclipses. Please see this blog post for more information about eclipses.

Mercury retrograde, an unfavorable astrological event, takes place July 25th.

Typical occurrences include revisiting the past, developing new solutions for existing problems, miscommunications, delays, and complications with new undertakings.

Approach important decisions, plans, and legal contracts with extra care because judgment tends to be faulty under Mercury retrograde.

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

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

Mars Retrograde 6-26-2018

June 18th, 2018

Mars goes retrograde June 26, 2018 at 2:04 p.m. PDT, 09 degrees, 13 minutes Aquarius. It goes direct August 27, 2018 at 7:05 a.m. PDT, 28 degrees, 36 minutes Capricorn.

Although Mars retrograde doesn’t actually involve Mars turning around and retreating, it does appear that way from Earth due to the planets’ respective orbits. This phenomenon occurs about every two years and lasts for 80 days, on average.

Mars symbolizes strife, action, competition, masculine energy, and more.

Since Mars has to do with, in part, aggression and the utilization of energy, hallmarks of Mars retrograde period include, for example, battling an adversary from the past, dealing with anger issues, and working on conflict resolution.

Retrogrades are one of many possible afflictions, it takes multiple factors (forming patterns) to make a symbolic impact, and each universal (e.g., eclipses, retrogrades, etc.) indicator is personalized through your unique natal and timing patterns.

For some people, Mars retrograde is a non-event and for others it represents important life circumstances.

Generally, the worse shape your natal Mars, the worse the overall conditions, with corroborating factors. For those who study astrology, pay attention to where exactly the retrograde or other universal factor occurs in your personal patterns to further your understanding.

At a minimum, vitality may be marginally decreased and repression of personal energy can occur, particularly for those born under Mars retrograde.

My findings show astrological phenomena symbolize life circumstances, but don’t directly make things happen. “As above, so below.” For those who care to observe them, celestial signs have served as powerful omens for eons.

This Mars retrograde may not have much symbolic impact on your life, but tracking such happenings can help you gain an understanding of the cyclical nature of time, and even help limit your overall risk.

Personality Analysis: This is Why Winners Rarely Lose

May 28th, 2018
Share Button

“If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.” [Last Verse, chapter 3, the Art of War, which spawned the following modern proverb] “If you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.” Sun Tzu

I’ve found these words of wisdom to be true. The more I work with personality and predictive analysis, the more I recognize that self-knowledge is one of the keys to success.

Take for example, motivations.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m not the money-motivated type”? While it may be true in many cases, it’s amusing when the subject is exceedingly acquisitive and for whatever reason wants to believe she isn’t.

This is exactly the sort of lack of self-understanding that hinders success. For instance, the subject pursues a humanitarian career appealing to what she believes is her altruistic nature, and several years down the road finds herself miserable.

She may very well be altruistic, but she’s secretly motivated by money in a big way, and would be much more successful and infinitely more happy in a commission-based job, such as a real estate agent.

The hidden motivations of others are also the cause of some of the biggest challenges you will face in life. You can spend months or years getting to know someone, but there are ways to cut to the chase and find out right away if he’s a risk to your financial well-being (or worse), such as through my unconventional security investigations.

The subconscious mind is tricky—it hides your true desires and all your fears and defenses.

The better you know your unconscious beliefs, misconceptions, fears, biases, and strengths, the less likely you’ll make a mistake in judgment in high risk situations. Thus, you are more likely to win instead of lose.

Self-knowledge also includes timing.

Everyone has different timing, and knowing the lucrative and not so lucrative phases in your life—the extremes—gives you an enormous edge in life allowing you to capitalize on the rewarding stages and limit your risk in the red-flag episodes.

It’s a rare individual who knows himself and others exceedingly well without much effort, but for the rest of us, delving into the subconscious mind and collective personal timing greatly assists in winning life’s everyday battles.

Astrology Q & A: What To Look For In Foreign Relocation

May 7th, 2018
Share Button

Question:
“Could you please explain what do you look for in a chart for foreign/overseas settlement. I have several options. Does 12th house have to be connected to 3rd or 9th and 6th or 10th?”

Answer:
The first step in relocation (considering you have a choice) is to select a location you believe you will like. Analyze all the data, weigh the pluses and minuses, make your selection, then analyze the locational astrology and numerology charts.

I also recommend you consider that relocation doesn’t change anything in regards to your overall personal fate. My findings show your natal considerations and personal timing overrule all locational analyses. Mistaking locational analyses highlights with personal timing and natal pattern features is a common mistake.

Concerning the basic natal chart’s houses being in harmony with the relocational chart’s houses, I recommend a different approach, including the following and more: watch for malefics such as Saturn, Mars, and Moon’s South Node on the angles (1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th house cusps), which can be a bad omen. Also consider very early or late degrees (less than 3 degrees or more than 27 degrees) Ascendant, along with the health of the most potent heavenly body in your natal patterns, in the patterns of the new location. This is a decent starting point, but there’s a lot more to it; I recommend learning the ancient methodologies (up to about 1700 AD) if you want to learn how to effectively delineate and predict (or hire a professional to do it for you).

Numerology Q & A: Analyzing Foreign Language Names

April 16th, 2018
Share Button

Question:
“How do I analyze foreign language names, that is, in non-abc alphabets. Do we transliterate the name into English for a standard abc analysis, or do we analyze the name in its original language, by allocating the appropriate numbers to the letters sequentially? There are arguments for both methods, but I have had very good results using the transliteration method, while the other method did not give me anything meaningful. I’d be curious to hear your take on and experience with this question.”

“Do the numerological values of letters represent their underlying sounds or their place in the sequence of the alphabet? Every single human language is a collection of sounds (energy frequencies that can be depicted on a chart), and these sounds are represented in the various alphabets by different symbols–the letters. So if the letters have numerical values, it is essentially the sounds (= frequencies) that have these values, and these values should be the same no matter with which symbols they are represented, and a transliteration is exactly this: representing the sounds of one language with letters/symbols of a different language. Thus, is a transliteration really an ‘other’ name?”

“However, this would raise the question of comparing if the various representations of the same sound have the same value in different alphabets. But on the other hand, what is the ‘logic’ in the sequence of letters in any specific alphabet, especially since different languages can have different placements for the same letter?”

Answer:
My findings show that it’s important to analyze the birth name, the exact name on the legal birth certificate, in its original language, the language/alphabet used in naming the person. That means you must allocate the appropriate numbers to the letters sequentially.

Other methods, and using a name other than the one on the legal birth certificate, yield persona analyses, which can be useful in some ways.

You say above, “…it is essentially the sounds (= frequencies) that have these values, and these values should be the same no matter with which symbols they are represented,” but phonetic numerology is a separate, supplemental form of analysis, one that is important, but does not take the place of what I describe above. It’s reasonable to say that transliteration is another name, through phonetic numerology.

The numerological values of letters/symbols represent their place in the sequence of the respective alphabet. The logic in respecting the numbered sequence of letters in any given alphabet is supported through long-term empirical research. Different placements for the same letter in various alphabets are irrelevant. I recommend avoiding superimposing a foreign alphabet/language on someone’s name through numerology. The English language/alphabet is suitable in numerology calculations only for those who were named in it.

A Russian, for example, using his persona English version name will get only a persona read by using that persona name with numerology based on the English language.

An aside, changing your name only changes your persona, it won’t change your life.

Although I find name-based numerology useful by itself, ultimately, my findings show birth date and exact time-based numerology and astrology (combined with name-based numerology) to be most accurate in character analysis and prediction.

Astrology Q & A: Current Location or Birth Location for Progressed Charts?

March 26th, 2018
Share Button

Question:
“When running a progressed or solar return chart, do you use the place of birth or the current place of residence? I was born on the other side of the world and have not lived there since I was five.”

Answer:
My findings corroborate the notion that birth location is by far the most important in all astrology and numerology matters. Solar and lunar return charts, progressed charts, and other predictive methodologies are most accurate based on birth location. Current location, if different than birth location, can be used as background energy.

Relocation doesn’t alter personal fate, but is part of it. Collective personal timing using natal patterns explains the stark contrast in life circumstances sometimes experienced after relocation. Challenges and rewards thought to be linked exclusively with a different location turn out to be hidden all along in the complex natal patterns.

By the way, I’ve found progressed charts, solar and lunar return charts, transits, and other modern-focused methods to be useful only as the finishing touches in an approach involving more comprehensive, ancient methodologies (up to about 1700 AD).
