Mercury Retrograde December 19 2016 to January 8 2017

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Mercury retrograde occurs about every three months. It’s an opportunity to observe the cyclical nature of life, and if you know what to watch out for, you can reduce the associated risks.

Simply by being aware of the hallmarks of this astrological phenomenon, which include communication problems, delays, and complications with new endeavors, it makes it easier to navigate your way around challenges.

It’s natural to revisit concerns from the past; they have a tendency to come back into focus at this time. It’s an opportune time to resolve old issues, yet perception of the present is distorted.

Current matters typically don’t go as smoothly as expected and awareness is a bit clouded during Mercury retrograde. Ideas you originate during that span of time aren’t what they seem, unless it’s an idea from the past you’re now revisiting.

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 December 2016–January 2017 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 12-19-2016 at 2:55 a.m. PST, 15 degrees 07 minutes Capricorn.
  2. Mercury goes direct 1-8-2017 at 1:42 a.m. PST, 28 degrees 50 minutes Sagittarius.

This bar graph includes the December 2016–January 2017 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrology events.

Astrology Q & A: Common Mistake That Kills Predictive Accuracy

Monday, November 21st, 2016
Share Button


“I wanted to ask you the significance of solar arc transits – Like are solar arc movements to natal planets strong indicator of events happening in ones life or is it usually the general transits to planets that causes the events to happen in one’s life? or do we need to have both for event to happen? and which one, according to you out of the two should get the top priority in predicting events?”


Your search for reliable methods is commendable; it’s one every novice endures in order to formulate his or her own system of analysis.

Only by continually and objectively testing everything you learn will you organize a dependable framework of checks and balances. Shortcuts are non-existent, despite what you may read on-line. Like any skill, it demands discipline, time, and repetition.

My findings show that solar arc transits and transits, along with progressions and other modern astrology favored methods, are surface indicators. Modern astrology methods kill predictive accuracy.

Aside from mostly providing a tenuous sense of the symbolism of astrology, such indicators are only useful for shaping up an existing analysis based on more comprehensive methods. My advice is to avoid excessively focusing on modern astrology methods. I recommend your focus be between about 300 BC and 1700 AD.

Also, astrology doesn’t “compel” or make things happen. The ancients had it right—it symbolizes personal fate. That may sound “void of promise,” but that’s the way the real world is, at times. The positives and negatives are both featured in your natal patterns and it pays to consider both.

Rare Supermoon and Full Moon 11-14-2016

Sunday, November 6th, 2016
Share Button

A rare supermoon and Full Moon, exact by degree, occurs on 11-14-2016 at 5:52 a.m. PST, 22 degrees 37 minutes Taurus.

The Moon enters the sign of Taurus 11-12-2016 at 6:23 p.m. PST, after a lengthy Moon Void of Course beginning at 7:20 p.m. PST 11-11-2016.

Note: I consider the last Ptolemaic aspect before this Moon Void of Course to be Moon trine Saturn, skipping Moon conjunct Uranus, making the Moon Void of course longer. I prefer this ancient method instead of the modern approach.

The Moon remains in the sign of Taurus, in which it is exalted, until it enters the sign of Gemini 11-14-2016 at 5:23 p.m. PST. A heavenly body in an exalted state, a sign of exceptional health, represents, in part, rewards instead of challenges.

Although the Full Moon is exact by degree on 11-14-2016 early morning PST, the Full Moon phase lasts the entire span of its transit through the sign of Taurus.

This supermoon is rare because it’s the closest the Full Moon has been to Earth since 1948. The next closest is in the year 2034.

A supermoon event is largely superficial in terms of astrological significance. It’s merely a Full Moon occurring when the Moon’s orbit is closest to Earth, so the Moon simply looks bigger.

See this page for more information about the value of tracking Moon transits and Moon Voids of Course.

Q&A: Organized Religion Compatible with Astrology?

Monday, October 24th, 2016
Share Button


“I’m doing a research paper for my intercultural communications course. I would like to represent astrologers as a cross cultural sub culture. One of the subjects I have to touch base with is religion, is there a pro-dominant religion that astrologers belong to or does it coincide with most religions? Also I had this guy calculate how many lives I’ve had and will have, is that a part of astrology as well or is this something different?”


Generally, astrologers tend to be spiritual, non-religious, and don’t subscribe to organized religion, though some do.

You would have to clarify what you mean by “coincide with most religions.” In my view, it’s entirely possible to accept many tenets of organized religion while concurrently accepting the science of astrology.

For example, as an astrologer, I embrace the idea of archangels (particularly Archangel Michael for protection against dark forces), a principle of many faiths. I also recognize the divinity of ascended masters of various sects. Daily meditation and regular protection prayers, which include asking for help from deities from various religions, help to keep me grounded.

The problem is that many leaders and subsequently the followers of various organized religions relentlessly demonize astrology and other esoteric practices. Demons and hell have nothing to do with astrology, despite their claims. Conventional science authorities mock astrology too.

Authentic astrology, going back to ancient times, outlines personal fate and is based on the theories of predestination and reincarnation. In light of this, it may not be compatible with some tenets of certain organized religions, aside from Buddhism and select others that embrace reincarnation and personal fate.

Calculating how many past lives you’ve had and how many future lives you will have isn’t directly linked to astrology, though there is a tenuous tie. It’s a complex issue, but it’s possible to get an idea whether a person has a long way to go, or if they have made significant spiritual progress.

Astrology: Predicting Betrayal

Sunday, October 9th, 2016
Share Button

Everyone experiences various forms of betrayal throughout their life, some people more than others.

Betrayal of trust, or deliberate disloyalty, is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary as “…to give information about (a person, group, country, etc.) to an enemy, to hurt (someone who trusts you, such as a friend or relative) by not giving help or by doing something morally wrong…”

It can involve failing to follow through on a promise, contractual or otherwise, whether it be marriage vows, familial obligations, or a business arrangement.

The most common form of betrayal seems to be romantic infidelity, though disloyalty can manifest in countless ways.

The concept of victimhood is complicated. I recognize that sometimes people are treated unfairly, yet my findings show time and time again that it’s fated, like an unstoppable force barreling down a mountain.

Seeing predetermination manifest time and time again, clearly represented in the astrology and numerology patterns, makes you reconsider reality as perceived by the mainstream. The objective conclusion is that betrayal is frequently fated. That may sound horrible, but I’m just reporting my findings.

One way to ease the pain of betrayal is to avoid expectations. Sounds easy, but it isn’t. Everyone has expectations about how others should behave and many times they seem justified.

You may suggest that the perpetrator could have behaved differently, but the fact is they didn’t and if given another opportunity, they would likely do it again. I’m not making an excuse for bad behavior; I’m simply saying there’s a lot in life you can’t control, especially other people’s behaviorAlso, if you’re inclined to believe the spiritual laws of karma and fate, nobody gets away with anything—the wrongdoer doesn’t get a free pass.

It’s not easy to predict the exact nature and precise timing of a major episode of double-dealing, but I do predict the general nature of the betrayal and the approximate timing, usually in a six to twelve month time frame.

The first step in predicting betrayal is to review your comprehensive astrology and numerology charts–you may have a karmic date with destiny involving betrayal. I’m not saying you deserve it; my role isn’t to explain the why, but instead link life circumstances with patterns in the charts to help you prepare for and mitigate the consequences.

Those who are forced to endure significant betrayal, whether it be related to their love life, career, family, or otherwise, share a commonality: they possess the related natal and timing patterns, those unfortunate grimace-inducing signposts.

The next step in identifying the potential for treachery and predicting it is to consider the other person in question. Red flag personality traits such as dishonesty, in excess, all but guarantee deception. Unfortunately, if you’re in denial about the person’s true character, and you ignore all the warning signs, you have only yourself to blame.

People never change much. It’s up to you to get to know someone well enough before opening yourself up to excessive risk.

Three different groups emerge from those fated to endure excessive betrayal, as symbolized by the astrology and numerology patterns: those who are in denial about it; those who suffer greatly; and those who surrender expectations, do what they can to limit risk, and accept what is out of their control, adopting a mystic’s outlook.

Your Sun Sign Has Not Changed and it Never Will‏

Monday, October 3rd, 2016
Share Button

Every so often there’s a news story about a scientist that claims your astrological sign has changed. Your sign has not changed and it never will change.

Such news stories usually include the obligatory statement by the cynic about astrology not being a science.

I agree that Sun sign astrology, the type of astrology conventional scientists and other skeptics refer to, isn’t a science.

Merriam-Webster dictionary’s definition of science is, “systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.”

Moving beyond superficial forms of astrology including Sun sign horoscopes, and computer generated reports based on a mere handful of factors like progressions and transits, you find that the astrology covering complex protocols originating between 300 BC and 1700 AD is genuine science.

It’s bewildering how seemingly well-educated scientists appear to be incapable of doing the most basic research regarding astrology. Their blanket dismissal of all astrology isn’t scientific.

If they actually did study the topic, they would learn the following:

  1. Astrologers have acknowledged the precession of the equinoxes for over 2000 years. Precession makes the solstices, such as the winter solstice around December 21st each year, begin a little earlier each year. The result is about a degree every 70 years (there are 30 degrees in each of the 12 signs).
  2. The disparity is reflected in the Sidereal zodiac, but not in the Tropical zodiac. The differences between the two zodiacs are outlined in this article. The vast majority of people in the Western world use the Tropical zodiac, thus your Sun sign remains the same no matter what.
  3. Even those who use the Sidereal zodiac to determine their Sun sign have the same sign they were born with.
  4. Concerning calculations in astrology software that are affected by precession, such as transits, the software adjusts for the variation.

Regarding using Sidereal zodiac based astrology (i.e., Hindu, Jyotish, Vedic), it won’t give you your “real” Sun sign (or Moon sign, or Ascendant, etc.). The only thing it will do is confuse you if you’re cherry picking single factors instead of learning the comprehensive language of astrology.

Although I advise against relying on mere Sun sign astrology, rest assured, if you were born under a Leo Sun, for example, you will always have a Leo Sun sign. Nothing has changed.

Compatibility: Attraction vs. Chemistry

Monday, September 26th, 2016
Share Button

Physical attraction and chemistry are two different things, yet they are closely connected.

You may be physically attracted to a person based on how they look in photos, but once you meet face-to-face you realize that chemistry plays an equally important role, perhaps more than physical allure.

Chemistry is what people describe as that certain something, a spark that draws you together. It either intensifies the attraction, or mitigates it. Compatibility has a lot to do with chemistry, and it’s measurable.

Extremes in compatibility show up like neon signs in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts and symbolize fabulous or horrible chemistry. Mediocre or neutral compatibility is less noticeable.

This holds true for any type of relationship, personal or business. The worse the chemistry, the more you have to work to make the connection functional.

One way to learn about the chemistry is to simply spend as much time together as possible (face-to-face—on-line doesn’t count). In the case of terrible chemistry, that person you initially perceived as enchanting seems more like something out of a nightmare the longer you stay together. Alternatively, if fantastic chemistry, the person you weren’t sure about at first seems more and more like the person of your dreams as time goes on.

Hoping good chemistry will materialize over time is futile if it’s nonexistent in your connection. It may not be obvious at first if it does exist, but if it doesn’t, nothing will change that.

Don’t feel alone if you don’t share spectacular chemistry with your mate, friend, or business associate; it’s more rare than you may think. My findings show that most people (in personal or work-related relationships) share mediocre chemistry. Perhaps this is due to the notion that most connections are primarily for personal (and spiritual) growth.

Beware of perceived chemistry while never having met someone in person. Phone conversations and video chats can be misleading. Whether it relates to your romantic or professional life—you won’t get a true understanding of the chemistry until you spend time together.

How to Pick a Romantic Partner

Monday, September 19th, 2016

How to pick a compatible romantic partner isn’t something you’re taught in school, though there’s a way to increase the likelihood of a good match.

Conventional wisdom tells you to take these steps in picking a romantic partner:

  1. Make yourself available to potential matches.
  2. Meet the potential partner and make sure you are attracted to the person, share some basic interests, and there is chemistry (the energetic connection).
  3. Spend a lot of time together to be certain you’re a good match.
  4. Make a commitment and hope for the best.

The problem is that you may have to spend months or even years together to discover that you’re not compatible at all.

You could try to make it work, but the harder you have to work at it, the worse the compatibility.

An easier way exists to pick a partner, and this could be a romantic partner or any other type, such as a business partner: find out, before investing too much time, about your compatibility and any potential personality red flags. The requirements to discover true compatibility are straightforward, yet complex.

Two people who share an extraordinary affinity with each other aren’t merely lucky. My findings tell me hidden forces, largely metaphysical and psychological, dictate the level of compatibility between two people. Additionally, it’s measurable through comprehensive astrology and numerology, along with handwriting analysis.

How two people relate to each other is based on their own unique nature, personality traits (including problem characteristics), and personal timing. Choice is mostly absent from the equation, aside from deciding to be civil or not, and even that can be a continuous uphill battle with a complete lack of harmony between two people.

Authentic compatibility has little to do with hobbies, level of education, cultural differences, race, religion, ethnicity, and social standing. It has almost everything to do with your hidden spirit and cognitive makeup and how that energetically corresponds to another person.

Granted, most people who suddenly find themselves with the prospect of a good match don’t want bad news. But if you want to save time, money, and heartache, and you don’t mind if some of the romantic illusions crash against the rocks of reality, you can find out the truth about the compatibility sooner rather than later.

Lunar Eclipse September 16 2016—Third Eclipse In Thirty Days

Monday, September 12th, 2016
Share Button

A lunar eclipse occurs September 16, 2016. It’s exact by degree at 12:05 p.m. PDT, 24 degrees 19 minutes Pisces.

This is the third eclipse since the lunar eclipse on August 18, 2016. A solar eclipse occurred September 1, 2016.

More than one way exists to calculate eclipses; some methods show the August 18th 2016 Full Moon to be “not quite” an eclipse. Though according to my astrological findings, it was a lunar eclipse, even though nobody on this planet could see the Earth’s shadow on the Moon.

It’s unusual to have three eclipses in thirty days, and even more so to have Mercury, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto retrograde occurring at the same time. Although Mercury is retrograde officially 8-30-2016 to 9-21-2016, my findings show the three week or so period before it actually goes retrograde is worth paying attention to.

Typically, judgment is distorted during eclipses, particularly during lunar eclipses. Take extra care with important decisions, avoid impulsiveness, and know that things may not be as they appear to be.

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

The bar graph in this blog post includes the September 16, 2016 lunar eclipse, along with other basic astrology events.
