Select 2022 Astrological and Numerological Highlights

Monday, December 6th, 2021
Share Button

Hermes Trismegistus, the author named in the text of the enigmatic Emerald Tablet, said, “That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that is below.”

According to the Hermetic tradition, occult sciences such as astrology and numerology symbolize events and circumstances in your life. Notice the quote above states “…is like…” instead of “makes happen.” The microcosm reflects the macrocosm, and the macrocosm reflects the microcosm. 

The ancients believed human beings are intimately connected to the universe. You have a choice to either learn about the energy flow of the universe and move with it, or ignorantly fight against the currents of life. 

One of the best ways to move with the currents of life, to know and capitalize on your personal timing, is through personalized comprehensive astrology and numerology. 

If you aren’t ready for an in-depth strategy, learning about universal occurrences such as the Universal Year (e.g., 2022 = 2+0+2+2=6), eclipses, and retrogrades can still be helpful.

Two Universal and Personal Numerology Cycles

See this blog post and this article for information about the Universal Year. Scroll down within this article to get an idea about the balanced, over-balanced, and under-balanced form of each of the root numbers 1-9, which can give you a little insight about each Universal Year and your Personal Year. The Universal Year is intimately connected to the Personal Year, which is more relevant to you, personally, than the Universal Year. The second linked article above also features information about the Personal Year and how to calculate it.

To take it a step further, simply add the Universal Year or Personal Year to the current calendar month to get the Universal Month or Personal Month. For example, since the Universal Year in 2022 is 6 (2022 = 2+0+2+2=6), in January the Universal Month is 7. Since January is the first month of the yearsimply add January (1) plus 2022 (6) which equals 7. The Personal Month is derived the same way; if you’re in a 3 Personal Year in 2022, you’re in a 4 Personal Month in January of 2022. These four cycles are a good place to start with basic numerology. Although these cycles are only four of hundreds of timing cycles, they are easy to follow and symbolically strong enough that you will recognize their importance.

Listed below are select universal astrological events for 2022. 

2022 eclipses:

Solar eclipse 4-30-2022, 10 degrees, 28 minutes Taurus

Lunar eclipse 5-15-2022, 25 degrees, 17 minutes Scorpio

Solar eclipse 10-25-2022, 02 degrees, 00 minutes Scorpio

Lunar eclipse 11-8-2022, 16 degrees, 00 minutes Taurus

2022 Mercury retrograde periods:

Mercury retrograde 1-14-2022 10 degrees, 20 minutes Aquarius

Mercury direct 2-3-2022 24 degrees, 22 minutes Capricorn

Mercury retrograde 5-10-2022 04 degrees, 51 minutes Gemini

Mercury direct 6-3-2022 26 degrees 05 minutes Taurus

Mercury retrograde 9-9-2022 08 degrees, 55 minutes Libra

Mercury direct 10-2-2022 24 degrees 11 minutes Virgo

Mercury retrograde 12-29-2022 24 degrees, 21 minutes Capricorn

Mercury direct 1-18-2023 08 degrees, 08 minutes Capricorn    

2022 Venus retrograde periods:

Venus retrograde 12-19-2021 26 degrees, 29 minutes Capricorn

Venus direct 1-29-2022 11 degrees, 04 minutes Capricorn          

2022 Mars retrograde periods:

Mars retrograde 10-30-2022 25 degrees, 36 minutes Gemini

Mars direct 1-12-2023 08 degrees, 07 minutes Gemini

Be a little more cautious regarding important matters involving higher than average risk on the day of and the days surrounding eclipses and Mercury retrogrades. This includes, but is not limited to, big purchases, investments, and legal contracts. 

See this blog post for information about Mercury retrograde.

See this blog post for information about eclipses. See this blog post for additional information about eclipses.

Venus and Mars retrogrades traditionally are not as noticeable as Mercury retrogrades. As always, any single universal celestial phenomenon symbolically affects you in a unique way, as it relates to your personal astrological patterns. A particular retrograde or eclipse may represent big life changes for one person, and almost nothing for another person. 

This blog post includes information about multiple, basic astrology factors, including Mercury retrograde, Venus retrograde, Mars retrograde, and more.

Although the aforementioned celestial and numerological happenings are minor in relation to the massive body of universal and natal indicators, tracking these cycles and events, especially in conjunction with your natal factors and patterns, can help you limit your risk and save time and money.

Two Eclipses November and December 2021

Monday, November 8th, 2021
Share Button

lunar eclipse occurs on November 19th, 2021. It’s exact by degree at 3:57 a.m. EST, 27 degrees 14 minutes Taurus.

About two weeks later, a solar eclipse occurs on December 4th, 2021. It’s exact by degree at 2:43 a.m. EST, 12 degrees 22 minutes Sagittarius.

Your discernment and understanding of circumstances in your life is likely to be at least somewhat distorted during eclipse periods, so be careful with important decisions. Avoid risky situations such as a spontaneous decision to try hang-gliding, quickly hiring a new staff member without enough consideration, or hasty financial speculation. 

Three to four weeks before an eclipse and a few days after is roughly the window of time that eclipse-related issues manifest. Thus, avoid excessive risk during this period.

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

Avoid This Terrible Hiring Mistake

Monday, October 11th, 2021
Share Button

In an ideal world, you hire someone because her skills match the demands of the job, she’s a good fit with the existing staff, and you like her personality.

However, perfect opportunities aren’t standard in the real world. As a business owner, if you have the choice of hiring someone you like only a little, but is likely to do a great job, or someone you like a lot and is only moderately qualified, which would you hire? No doubt, if you’re a successful business owner, you hire the person who is likely to do a great job. 

One of the biggest hiring mistakes is hiring based on preliminary impressions, which can be illusionary. Gut instinct can help you in your decision-making, but it’s not always reliable.

The following five vital questions about new hires are answered through my unconventional security investigations

  1. Does she possess any red-flag personality traits?
  2. Is his motivation geared toward success (e.g., is he money motivated if the job is commission sales)?
  3. Does the compatibility between you and your potential hire include treacherous energy that makes it impossible for you to see his true nature?
  4. Is the compatibility with your potential new hire excellent, good, fair, or poor?
  5. Is his collective personal timing geared toward success, related to the job?

Although it’s impossible to eliminate 100% of all hiring mistakes, you can greatly limit your risk by using several forms of evaluation, including my unconventional security investigations.

Mercury Retrograde September 26 to October 18 2021

Sunday, September 5th, 2021
Share Button

Mercury retrograde occurs September 26th to October 18, 2021.

Mercury retrograde typically includes a greater lack of certainty than usual, poor judgment, and delays involving communication, travel, and new activities. 

Be very careful with important decisions involving investments, large purchases, and legal matters including contracts. New concepts and ideas originating during Mercury retrograde (particularly during the first half of it, and the three weeks before Mercury goes retrograde) are often amended later. 

Besides the usual difficulties, Mercury retrograde offers the opportunity to find solutions to existing problems, reconnect with old friends, and complete on-going projects.

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.

Mercury retrograde September and October 2021 details:

1. Mercury goes retrograde 9-26-2021 at 11:10 p.m. EDT, 25 degrees 28 minutes Libra.
2. Mercury goes direct 10-18-2021 at 9:16 a.m. EDT, 10 degrees 07 minutes Libra.

The bar graph in this post includes the September/October 2021 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrological events.

Following Mercury retrograde and other basic astrological cycles allows you to witness the cyclical nature of life, and reduce your overall risk.

Full Moons Linked to Aggressive Behavior

Monday, August 9th, 2021
Share Button

The cycles of the Moon having any affect on human behavior is commonly dismissed as folklore, yet anecdotal evidence suggesting otherwise from law enforcement, emergency room and 911 call center workers, and prison employees is compelling. 

The astrological significance of the cycles of the Moon is vital, but it’s only one facet of universal (e.g., Mars retrograde), natal (your personal birth charts), and timing (universal and personal) phenomena. Basing, for example, astrological physiognomy exclusively on the Moon would be incomplete. A much broader collection of components is necessary. Still, the powerful symbolism of the Moon can’t be denied.

Police in Brighton England have linked full Moons to aggressive behavior. “Research carried out by us has shown a correlation between violent incidents and full moons…I compared a graph of full moons and a graph of last year’s violent crimes and there is a trend. People tend to be more aggressive. I would be interested in approaching universities and seeing if any of their postgraduates would be interested in looking into it further. This could be helpful to us.”

The article linked above also references a study involving jail inmates, violence, and the full Moon: “In 1998, a three-month psychological study of 1,200 inmates at Armley jail in Leeds discovered a rise in violent incidents during the days on either side of a full moon. During the first and last quarter of each lunar month there was a marked increase in violent incidents. During the remaining part of the month there were far fewer incidents and none at all on some days.”

Further supporting a link between the Moon’s cycles and human behavior includes a study published in Translational Psychiatry. Both solar and lunar cycles were linked to a bipolar patient’s mood cycles: “Although skepticism is warranted, lunar mood cycles may be an experiment of nature that is pointing toward aspects of gravity and biophysics that are only beginning to be investigated.”

As we were reminded of in 2020, modern science is rife with fraud and bias. I’m sure you could find just as many studies showing zero links to human behavior and the cycles of the Moon. But if you pay attention, objectively, you’ll see that celestial phenomena symbolize human nature and life circumstances time and time again.

The longest science project ever is based on astrology. Imagine the scientific breakthroughs that would occur if modern science studied abstract concepts.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

How to Identify Authentic Humility

Monday, July 5th, 2021
Share Button

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines humility as “freedom from pride or arrogance: the quality or state of being humble.”

Humility can be expressed in many ways. It tends to enhance interpersonal relationships, rather than destroy them, which pride and vanity can do.

“Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility…It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.” Saint Augustine

Everyone has some degree of acting ability, some much more than others, and that can be a very dangerous thing.

One of the most common mistakes in assessing human character is mistaking personas for genuine personality. 

The real personality, the unique collection of varying degrees of subconscious fears and defenses, along with inherent positive characteristics, emerges under pressure. You may not perceive it until long after you’ve known the person. 

It can be shocking when your division head, while under enormous pressure to make a deadline, suddenly exhibits an obnoxious lack of humility (e.g., arrogance) and becomes a divisive force, driving out good employees from the company. The humble façade shatters and you’re left with a very expensive problem that you could have identified before it was too late. 

In order to find out if he or she has a problem with authentic humility before it’s too late, you could spend thousands of dollars (even tens of thousands) on traditional security investigations. The more money you spend, the more time investigators scrutinize the subject’s life.

Or, you could take an unconventional route: I’ve found handwriting analysis, part of my systems of analysis, an extraordinarily effective tool to measure lack of humility (and dozens of other red-flag personality traits).

Human nature never ceases to supply nasty surprises, but you can limit your risk through my non-traditional security investigations.

The Astrology and Numerology of Being an Oddball

Monday, April 5th, 2021
Share Button

Everyone is special, relative to his or her distinctive comprehensive astrological and numerological patterns. 

Differences make the world go around, and extraordinarily bizarre types of people sometimes serve as agents of important change.

Prominent oddballs of the world, such as Pablo Picasso, Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, David Bowie, and Steve Jobs, show us that unconventionality can make the world a better place.

A sampling of things that make others believe you’re an oddball include the following: multiple marriages and affairs (Picasso); being a “germophobe” and refusing to stay in hotel rooms that weren’t multiples of 3 (Tesla); refusal to wear socks (Einstein); founding the “Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men” (Bowie); obtaining a new car every 6 months in order to use dealer plates and avoid having to get regular license plates (Jobs). 

You’ll find more common (subjective) abnormalities in everyone’s life. Person A, a social butterfly, believes person B is too reclusive. Person B, an aspiring mystic, believes person A is too surface oriented. Each thinks the other is peculiar. My findings tell me both are perfect as they are, relative to their innate character and predestined path in life. 

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
Steve Jobs

Unique patterns in the comprehensive astrological and numerological charts signify eccentricity. Although explaining the details of the patterns is beyond the scope of this article, you can get an idea of what makes an individual appear strange just by learning about specific related astrological and numerological factors.

The most easily identifiable oddball behavior indicators include the numerological factors involving the numbers 7, 11, and 22. That includes variations of 7, 11, and 22, such as 25, 34, 29, 65, 895, and 1975. In numerology, use fadic addition to reduce each double or higher digit number to a single digit: 25= 2+5= 7, 34= 3+4= 7, 29= 2+9= 11, 65= 6+5=11, 895= 8+9+5=22, and 1975= 1+9+7+5= 22.

The reason 7, 11, and 22 are more symbolic of unusual character and behavior than other numbers is that they are less mundane and much more connected to the other side than other numbers. There is no “normal” on the other side. 

An aside, numbers (and planets, fixed stars, etc.) don’t make anything happen, though they do represent character and life circumstances.  

When reviewing the mere dates of birth of the above-listed famous individuals, you won’t see a lot of 7, 11, or 22. However, for all of them, the patterns in their comprehensive natal and timing charts (using the full birth data) include an abundance of that type of energy. 

Read about the number 7 here.

Read about the number 11 here.

Read about the number 22 here.

Astrological features that can equate to outlandish behavior (particularly negative qualities if the heavenly body is severely afflicted) include some of the following: excessive Mercury energy can relate to a quirky personality with a lightning fast, creative mind; strong Venus energy often symbolizes an insatiable desire for sensual pursuits, yet a talent for beautification; a disproportionate amount of Mars energy frequently symbolizes an energetic, determined, yet irritable and contentious individual; heavy Jupiter can mean continual over-indulgence, leading to obesity, but also a talent for reasoning and attracting abundance; excessive Saturn energy can relate to nervous tension, anti-social behavior, paranoia, a gloomy, enigmatic, and lean appearance, yet endurance and a brilliantly analytical mind; extreme Uranus energy is representative of an unorthodox way of life, inventive and original thinking, freedom, and radical independence; Neptune in abundance can relate to idealism and dreams, but too often represents illusion, drinking and, or drugging. 

See this article for more information about basic astrology, including planets, signs, elements, houses, and more.

Ultimately, everyone is an oddball in his or her own unique way. As the aforementioned famous individuals have proved, being true to your oddball nature can be a tremendous gift to the world.  

“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Psychopaths and Narcissists More Likely to Virtue Signal

Monday, March 8th, 2021
Share Button defines virtue signaling as follows: “The sharing of one’s point of view on a social or political issue, often on social media, in order to garner praise or acknowledgment of one’s righteousness from others who share that point of view, or to passively rebuke those who do not: The virtue signaling of solidarity with the victims can be a comforting affirmation of community. Their outraged virtue signaling comes across as contrived.”

Social media is full of these types of attention-seeker phonies. One of the main problems with holier-than-thou virtue signaling is that it can overshadow the causes of those who are sincere and have actual legitimate claims of harm. 

You’ve probably suspected all along that psychopaths and narcissists are more likely to virtue signal. According to a recent study, that’s true. 

Adding thieves to the list of those who are more likely to virtue signal makes sense considering the above-linked study’s findings about virtue signaling as a means to steal funds and resources

“An emerging literature on competitive victimhood documents the prevalence of victim signaling by various social groups and provides evidence for its functionality as a resource extraction strategy. For instance, victim signaling justifies victim groups seeking retribution against alleged oppressors. Retribution often takes the form of demanding compensation through some kind of resource transfer from nonvictims to the alleged victim. Claiming victim status can also facilitate resource transfer by conferring moral immunity upon the claimant. Moral immunity shields the alleged victim from criticism about the means they might use to satisfy their demands. In other words, victim status can morally justify the use of deceit, intimidation, or even violence by alleged victims to achieve their goals. Relatedly, claiming victim status can lead observers to hold a person less blameworthy, excusing transgressions, such as the appropriation of private property or the infliction of pain upon others, that might otherwise bring condemnation or rebuke. Finally, claiming victim status elevates the claimant’s psychological standing, defined as a subjective sense of legitimacy or entitlement to speak up. A person who has the psychological standing can reject or ignore any objections by nonvictims to the unreasonableness of their demands. In contrast to victim signalers, people who do not publicly disclose their misfortune or disadvantage are less likely to reap the benefits of retributive compensation, moral immunity, deflection of blame, or psychological standing and would therefore find it difficult to initiate resource transfers.”

The study also links another trait, manipulation, with those who virtue signal. Manipulation comes in many forms, but some of the more prevalent include the following: conditional (vs. unconditional) behavior; passive-aggressive behavior; emotional exploitation; being excessively nice in an underhanded way; playing the poor me game; trying to make others feel guilty; and others.

Authentic victimhood is a serious matter, but it’s unfortunate so many vain, acquisitive, manipulative, and dishonest people get so much exposure.

You can try to go exclusively on gut instinct or word of mouth to avoid the bad apples in your personal and professional life, but it’s wise to consider multiple forms of assessment.

I readily and effectively identify severe forms of all the above red flag personality traits in my non-traditional security investigations, which include handwriting analysis, one of the most objective and non-discriminatory forms of personality analysis.
