Solar Eclipse 7-12-2018 and Lunar Eclipse 7-27-2018

July 2nd, 2018
Share Button

A solar eclipse occurs July 12, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 7:47 p.m. PDT, 20 degrees 41 minutes Cancer.

A lunar eclipse occurs July 27, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 1:20 p.m. PDT, 4 degrees 44 minutes Aquarius.

For the most part, eclipses symbolize challenges instead of rewards, but solar eclipses are typically easier than lunar eclipses. Generally, lunar eclipses symbolize endings, and solar eclipses beginnings.

As with all universal factors, how they interact with your unique natal and timing patterns personalizes the symbolic impact of these phenomena.

I recommend avoiding impulsive decisions and high-risk activities around the time of eclipses. Please see this blog post for more information about eclipses.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the July 2018 eclipses, along with other basic astrology events.

Mars Retrograde 6-26-2018

June 18th, 2018
Share Button

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

“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?”

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

“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?”

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

“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.”

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).

Mercury Retrograde March 22 to April 15 2018

March 5th, 2018
Share Button

Mercury retrograde, a malefic astrological event, occurs in less than three weeks.

Common problems include communication misunderstandings, complications involving new endeavors, and delays of all types. Be careful with important decisions, new plans, and legal contracts because judgment tends to be substandard.

Revisiting the past is common during Mercury retrograde, as is originating new solutions for old problems.

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 March 22 2018 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 3-22-2018 at 5:18 p.m. PDT, 16 degrees 54 minutes Aries.
  2. Mercury goes direct 4-15-2018 at 2:20 a.m. PDT, 04 degrees 46 minutes Aries.

The bar graph in this post includes the March 2018 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrological events.

Tracking Mercury retrogrades allows you to gain an understanding of the cyclical nature of life, and you can even reduce your overall risk in everyday life when you know the typical drawbacks of this phenomenon.

Personality Analysis: Intelligence vs. Intellectualism

February 12th, 2018
Share Button

The basic meaning of intelligence involves mental sharpness, comprehension, and adept application of knowledge.

There are various types of intelligence, including practical intelligence, emotional intelligence, and spiritual intelligence.

In a mundane sense, my findings show that intelligent people more often possess admirable traits such as a tendency to be sensible, realistic, grounded, effective, and no-nonsense.

Intelligent people may be easy to identify during an initial conversation, but oftentimes not. Additionally, subconscious fears and defenses distort objectivity. The stronger a person’s fears and defenses, the harder it is for him or her to see other people’s character objectively. Appearance can be misleading. A person may not come across as intelligent; perhaps he doesn’t have a way with words like intellectuals tend to, yet his solutions and problem solving skills may be light years ahead of his intellectual counterpart.

Alternatively, my findings show that intellectuals more often posses undesirable traits such as self-deception, excessive idealism, and a tendency to be unrealistic.

Espousing the theoretical and unsubstantiated doesn’t fix real world problems such as a stagnant economy and low wages. The money to fund endless government giveaways won’t magically appear no matter how brilliantly the intellectual denies scarcity and no matter how much he ignores the idea of fiscal sustainability.

Some of the key personality traits I review in evaluating intelligence, utilizing my proprietary systems of analysis (including handwriting analysis) include the following: logical thinking; investigative thinking; ability to make distinctions/sense of discernment; inquisitiveness; originality; organizational ability; analytical ability; visionary thinking; flexibility; and quick comprehension.

I also review the following traits, and others, which tend to symbolize a lack of intelligence: apathy; undeveloped mental abilities; superficial thinking; naiveté; emotional immaturity; lack of emotional balance; and disorderly thinking.

Finally, I review the following traits, and others, which intellectuals, not intelligent people, tend to posses—these detrimental attributes keep him trapped in theories and abstract notions (and outdated ideologies), while he avoids hard, cold realities that actual intelligent people come to realize: stubbornness; excessive abstract thinking; excessive fantasy orientation; lack of objectivity; self-deceit; and rationalization.

A person can be highly intellectual and intelligent at the same time, but the negative characteristics listed above, and others, lead the intellectual to make dumb decisions.

Nobody is perfect and everyone has his or her own unique fears and defenses, but it sure does save a lot of time and hassle by knowing ahead of time which person is likely to be more of a challenge than reward.

Solar Eclipse February 15 2018

January 28th, 2018

A solar eclipse occurs February 15, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 1:05 p.m. PST, 27 degrees 07 minutes Aquarius.

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

Although I recommend a comprehensive approach using pattern recognition involving multiple indicators, you can still get an idea of the symbolism of astrology by tracking single factors such as eclipses.

The exceptions to my recommendation are those rare, exceedingly psychic individuals who can use single factors as touchstones for consistently accurate divination.

As outlined in this blog post, a lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018.

How the symbolism relates to you depends on the patterns in your comprehensive astrology charts. For some this eclipse will be inconsequential, but for others the eclipse and the associated patterns represent key life events and circumstances.

Approximately three weeks before and a few days after an eclipse, perception tends to be distorted. Basically, things that seem to be okay may not be, and other things are better than they appear. Questionable decisions are a hallmark of eclipses. My findings show this applies to everyone, some more so than others.

Be careful with significant investments, legal contracts, and other high-risk endeavors, including high-risk physical activities.

Lunar Eclipse January 31 2018

A lunar eclipse occurs January 31, 2018. It’s exact by degree at 5:26 a.m. PST, 11 degrees 37 minutes Leo.

This lunar eclipse occurs in about two weeks, but 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.

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