Lunar Eclipse January 31 2018

January 14th, 2018
Share Button

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.

A Common Error That Kills Objectivity

December 3rd, 2017
Share Button

Bias is one of the most common problematic personality traits.

The inability to make impartial decisions blocks professional success, and destroys personal relationships. It ranks right up there with other atrocious red-flag personality traits such as indecisiveness, dishonesty, vanity, volatile emotions, lack of analytical ability, and lack of discretion.

Bias comes in many forms, and almost everyone possesses some degree of intolerance, but few seem to recognize one of the key factors in the problem with partiality: the subconscious mind.

Being ignorant of or refusing to acknowledge the power of your subconscious mind as it relates to objectivity is one of the most common errors that kill fair-mindedness.

Your perception of others is obscured by your subconscious fears and defenses. The stronger your unconscious fears and defenses, the more likely you are to misread someone upon first meeting, and the longer it will take you to perceive clearly the person’s authentic character, including strengths and challenges.

Examples of subconscious fears include fear of success, fear of abandonment, fear of losing control, fear of failure, perfectionism, conflict avoidance, and timidity. Examples of subconscious defense mechanisms include defiance, excessive secretiveness, domineering behavior, evasiveness, and self-deception.

Aside from distinguishing indisputable facts, no matter how keen your rapid cognitive function, you are likely to see the person as you are, not as they are. Prejudice (almost nobody is exempt), in varying degrees, is a ubiquitous subconscious fear, no matter what a person tells you otherwise. The truth is, most people simply aren’t familiar with the innate fears and defenses hidden in their subconscious mind, which distort their judgment.

Again, everyone is capable of exhibiting bias to some degree, but a severely prejudiced person can be a significant problem in your personal or professional life. Yet troublesome characteristics on the other side of the spectrum, such as lacking a sense of discernment, excessive naiveté, and gullibility can be equally harmful.

One way to get an idea about the level of innate bias a person may have is to ask his or her opinion about a well-known celebrity or politician. Even better, focus on specific personality traits; ask the person if he or she thinks the celebrity is untrustworthy, for example, if you suspect your new acquaintance may be. Those who lack self-awareness tend to project their flaws onto others. Just keep in mind that being objective about the facts, such as someone already having admitted to wrongdoing, or having been found overwhelmingly guilty in a court of law, is a different matter.

Always keeping in mind the potent influence of your subconscious mind goes a long way in dealing with strife and other interpersonal issues in everyday life.

Besides spending years getting to know someone, a way to uncover authentic personality, beyond the persona, is conventional security investigations (e.g., hiring a private detective). Unconventional security investigations, including those I offer, involving handwriting analysis, are a reliable alternative.

Mercury Retrograde December 2 2017 to December 22 2017  

November 19th, 2017
Share Button

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

Telltale complications include communication misunderstandings, more hindrances than usual involving new endeavors, and delays of all sorts. Be careful with momentous decisions, plans, and legal contracts because judgment tends to be a bit fuzzy.

You may find yourself revisiting the past; it’s a good time to develop solutions to on-going 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 is usually more difficult than the actual retrograde period. 

Mercury retrograde December 2017 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 12-2-2017 at 11:34 p.m. PST, 29 degrees 18 minutes Sagittarius.
  2. Mercury goes direct 12-22-2017 at 5:50 p.m. PST, 13 degrees Sagittarius.

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

Paying attention to Mercury retrogrades throughout the year offers the 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.

Common Personality Traits That Kill Relationships

November 5th, 2017
Share Button

Everyone has his or her own unique personality talents and flaws. My findings show the primary characteristics are inborn.

It’s unfortunate that unconventional appraisal methods aren’t universally part of every young person’s schooling to discover and understand his or her key strengths and weaknesses.

Currently, everyone must discover his or her own personality through trial and error, or through conventional evaluation methods, which typically fail to uncover the authentic personality.

Below I list typical relationship personality red flag traits that wreck personal and professional relationships. I readily identify all subconscious personality traits listed below in my exclusive analyses.

Lack of a reasonable sense of discernment and critical analysis skills translates into the inability to identify and understand personality and relationship issues, and possibly naiveté and gullibility. Combine it with lack of objectivity and the person is likely to avoid taking responsibility for his or her actions. Dishonesty also complicates matters.

Emotional immaturity and, or volatility shows a lack of emotional development and security. He or she will act on emotions (instead of reason), to his or her detriment.

Impulsiveness, lack of control over urges, and recklessness yield poor decision-making, among other challenges.

Self-esteem and ego strength relates to the amount of self-approval and the ability to cope with rejection. Vanity, arrogance, and narcissism are signs of an unhealthy ego. A “big ego” is actually a weak ego.

Conflict avoidance results from a fear of friction in relationships and a fear of not being liked. It’s due to any number of subconscious defense mechanisms such as disassociation, evasiveness, rationalization, secrecy, self-deceit, and vanity.

Suspiciousness, or a fear of trusting people, along with withdrawal or emotionally drawing back, makes relationships an uphill battle.

Other common relationship red flag traits include fear of intimacy, self-consciousness, and fear of sex (or excessive interest in sex).

Personality challenges are more easily recognized under less than ideal circumstances, such as when the person is under a lot of pressure. You’ll only see the persona until something triggers the subconscious fears and defenses.

Knowing a person’s authentic personality gives you understanding, which can ease conflict. It can also greatly limit your overall level of risk.

Warning: Key Personality Traits Are Inborn

October 22nd, 2017
Share Button

The age-old debate rages on: are you born with your personality traits, or do they develop, mostly due to environment?

Ask any parent with multiple children if his or her kids all possessed blank slate personalities from the beginning and you’ll get a look of disbelief and be told all his or her kids were different from the start.

My findings agree with that notion; you are born with your main character traits, both rewarding and challenging.

It may sound “void of promise” to the idealists, but embracing this notion will save you an enormous amount of time because attempts to change another person’s principal character are futile. The core of your personality is carved in stone. It won’t change much, no matter how much effort you put into reinventing yourself. You can, however, learn to maximize your strengths and tone down your weaknesses within the boundaries of your personal fate.

Granted, early abuse by parents or others, for example, may contribute to one’s personality, such as deepening inherent fears and defenses, but it doesn’t change the person’s overall character.

My contention is supported by comprehensive astrology and numerology (based on time of birth data), which relentlessly outlines personal fate, and handwriting analysis, which discerns subconscious personality. Time and time again the latter parallels the former; personality always develops according to predetermination.

You’ve never known someone to change so much that you didn’t recognize his or her unique character because it simply doesn’t happen.

Self-discipline can lead to gradual, small changes, such as quitting bad habits or learning a new skill, but overall personality remains the same.

You can’t transform a reclusive loner into a social butterfly, a Neanderthal thug into a scholar, or one that needs operational structure and supervision into a solo-entrepreneur. Your true nature is fixed and doesn’t change much.

Although most humans can be spontaneous and changeable, each individual’s larger, unique personality framework makes them largely predictable.

Be grateful for who you are, and make every effort to make the most of it. But avoid trying to change other people because it’s pointless.

Instead, learn as much as you can about another’s character because with understanding comes contentment, and possibly a great reduction in your overall level of risk if he or she possesses major, hidden red flag personality traits.

The Great Compatibility Dilemma

October 8th, 2017
Share Button

Determining the degree of authentic compatibility between two people is, by conventional wisdom, only something you discover after it’s too late.

Whether it involves business or personal relationships, it takes months or even years to begin to understand the character of your partner.

More than thirty years ago I purchased an astrology profiler report, one of those advertised in New Age magazines in the 1980s. Upon reviewing it I sensed there was some validity to it, but that it was too general and imprecise to accurately represent genuine personality.

Since then, through obsessive analysis and empirical observation, I’ve developed a system of checks and balances that involves comprehensive astrology, numerology, and handwriting analysis to determine personality, compatibility, and the timing of personal fate.

Below I outline select key findings and tips to help you save time and avoid the mistakes I made.

  1. Report writing software and similar programs (including the software we currently sell) serve as decent introductions to astrology and numerology, but unfortunately, that’s all they do. All report writing software is based on Ptolemaic aspects (conjunction, square, trine, etc.), elements (fire, air, water, earth), connections between planets and houses, lunar and solar returns, and other elementary components of basic natal charts. It would take an army of programmers decades to write the code necessary for software that could begin to effectively outline character and timing like a seasoned analyst.
  2. Meditate regularly, without fail. Whether it’s to know the next best step to take, to understand another person better, or to figure out how to formulate your own systems of analysis, daily meditation is vital, even if it’s only 10 minutes.
  3. Consider motivations and personality red flags first, then compatibility. Once you know his or her motivations (e.g., money, ego, personal accomplishment, competition, creativity, etc.) and problem characteristics (e.g., evasiveness, narcissism, emotional volatility, emotional immaturity, domineering tendencies, defiance, etc.), determining compatibility is easier.
  4. Remember that everyone has his or her own unique personality challenges and strengths, and nobody is perfect.
  5. Nobody is perfectly honest all of the time. Various forms of dishonesty exist, but most dishonesty is harmless.
  6. Most people are not rational creatures. They always act emotionally and rationalize their behavior by offering logical reasons that aren’t the real reasons.
  7. Real personality traits emerge under pressure or stress. Do something challenging with your partner to get an idea of his or her authentic character. Long-distance travel is a good test, preferably involving heavy jet lag.
  8. The “unexplainable draw” (frequently at the start of the union) is often a good thing, but sometimes not in that it can unfortunately represent the magnetism necessary to learn some of life’s tough lessons.
  9. Everyone has his or her own unique karma, both rewarding and challenging, inside and outside of relationships, and the tough stuff can’t be erased with a magic wand. Personal fate is immutable.
  10. Compatibility isn’t a choice, it’s something two people innately possess, and each two-person connection is unique.
  11. If you spend more than half your energy boosting your sense of detachment and compassion trying to rise above the innately challenging energy of the partnership, you don’t have a satisfactory relationship.
  12. Collective personal timing is immensely important in regards to partnerships of all types. It can be a godsend, or an affliction.
  13. Nobody has perfect compatibility, no matter how harmonious it appears.
  14. Few people have fantastic compatibility that endures.
  15. Most people have mediocre compatibility.
  16. Regarding romantic compatibility, the vast majority of couples aren’t well suited enough to enjoy life-long, monogamous, mutual sexual compatibility. Pretending all is well in the bedroom is a universal pastime.
  17. Besides motivations, personality red flags, and personal timing and karma, mental, physical/sexual, intellectual, social, and emotional compatibility should be reviewed as well to get a good idea of the overall rapport.

You can learn a lot about compatibility by applying unconventional methods. Knowing how you match with another person can deepen your understanding and reduce your overall risk.

Numerology and Master Number 11: 2018

September 25th, 2017
Share Button

Universal shifts of greater than average magnitude have occurred regularly since the beginning of time, so 2018, an 11 Universal Year, won’t be the most extraordinary year ever. But 2018 is a unique number.

The Universal Year number is derived by adding the digits of the calendar year together to yield a single number: 2018 = 2+0+1+8 = 11. Normally you’d also reduce the double-digit number 11 to a single digit number, but 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99 are special cases, otherwise known as Master Numbers.

These demanding numbers symbolize a stronger than average link to other dimensions (i.e., “the other side”). Consequently, Master Numbers can represent great rewards, great challenges, or both.

As stated in this blog post, “Cusp periods carry over as far as 50% into the next cycle, so new starts (in a universal sense) are still appropriate well into 2018, but by July 2018 things will be slowing down significantly, in a manner of speaking.” Read more about Universal Years and Universal Years vs. personal cycles in that blog post.

Cusp periods of the next cycle also start just beyond the 75% mark of the current cycle. Therefore, the cusp of the Universal Year of 2018/11 begins October 1st, 2017, which also begins an 11 Universal Month (add the current Universal Year, 2017, to the calendar month to yield the Universal Month number).

You may have heard talk about 11-11-11 leading up to November 2011, but 2011 only includes an 11 sub-factor and isn’t a pure 11 Universal Year, but instead a 4 Universal Year. The 4 dominates the 11 in this case.

Many universal factors can be derived using the month, day, and year, and the number 11 shows up sometimes more often in dates that don’t appear to include it, such as 2-9-2000. The Universal Year vibration is a good starting point in studying universal, non-personal cycles.

2009 was the most recent 11 Universal Year, occurring for the first time since 1910. Others include 1901, 1820, 1811, and so on.

You probably didn’t notice anything unusual about 2009, which isn’t surprising. Besides the Universal Year factor representing subtle energy, personal fate is symbolized by patterns of personal factors, not universal factors. Regardless, learning about this number and the Universal Year cycle gives you a glimpse into number mysticism.

More about the number 11:

  1. After the new-beginnings type energy of the 1 in a 9-year Universal Cycle, the 2 (or in this case 11), is like slamming on the brakes. Things slow down and patience is required.
  2. 11 is the opposite of mundane. It’s a direct connection to the unseen planes so pretenses and illusions disappear as the window shade snaps open and the truth is seen in the light of day. It can sometimes be shocking.
  3. Those with 11 heavily represented in their comprehensive numerology charts are frequently brilliant, though in unconventional ways. These are the way-showers, the unique individuals who offer unusual and dynamic solutions and new ways of thinking.
  4. Those with a lot of this number are often misunderstood as “crazy” because their thinking is so far distant from the mainstream. Those with balanced 11 aren’t crazy, but have a direct connection to the other side; they cut through facades and get to the heart of what really matters, sometimes in unsettling ways relative to societal norms.
  5. Prophetic dreams, seeing apparitions, and visions of future occurrences, for example, relate to this special number.
  6. Due to it being so other-dimensional, it often relates to health challenges; nervous tension, hypersensitivity, and anxiety are common problems.
  7. 11 is an unpredictable number and clashes with smoothly running affairs. Expect the unexpected and, or trouble under this exceptional number.
  8. It symbolizes fame and the opposite, infamy.
  9. The under-balanced and over-balanced side of it includes duplicity, dark energy, disturbing events, black magic, insanity, and betrayal. The high side involves constructive idealism, masterful diplomacy, spiritual awareness, and prophecy.
  10. Finances and other mundane concerns don’t do well under heavy 11. Though under balanced 11, with supporting patterns, monetary matters flourish.

Although it’s only one universal indicator, and personal indictors are required to delineate personal fate, you can still get an idea of the cyclical nature of time by recognizing the Universal Year.

Numerology and the Occult: Number 1 and 2017

September 11th, 2017
Share Button

Ancient astrology and number mysticism adepts believed very little in life was by chance. “All is number,” said Pythagoras.

Consistently and accurately discerning personal fate through divination techniques demands much time and discipline, but you can get a sense of the cyclical nature of time by tracking select basic universal cycles.

The word “occult,” by the way, simply refers to hidden knowledge, such as the functional mystical information prophetic masters amassed through eons of meticulous evaluation.

One of the most common universal numerology cycles is the Universal Year number. Simply add the digits of the calendar year together to yield a single number.

2017 = 2+0+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 = 1. 2017 is a 1 Universal Year.

The current universal calendar is inherently mathematically sound and linked to cosmic time; there’s nothing arbitrary about calendar dates, thus numerology cycles such as the Universal Year.

Universal cycles, such as the Universal Year, are used to derive personal cycles. Hundreds of personal cycles form patterns that symbolize personal fate.

Those doing this sort of work eventually learn that a “this (single cycle or natal indicator) means that (specific event or life circumstance)” is a flawed approach.

In other words, when tracking a subject’s key life circumstances, you’ll notice that major life events happen only sometimes under single indicators, yet they always happen under select groups of indicators. It takes multiple factors to represent predetermination and everyone has different timing.

Personal cycles are more potent to you but universal cycles are easier to track for the uninitiated.

Now that we’re well beyond the August 2017 eclipses, and Mercury went direct September 5th 2017, along with the fact that 75% through each numerology cycle the related energy is at a peak point (September marks the 75% point in the 2017/1 Universal Year cycle—U.Yr. cycles start on January 1st each year), the 1-energy is weighty right now. The New Moon September 19, 2017 makes it even more significant.

Whatever is initiated in a 1 period, generally, has staying power and influence (the good and the bad), dictating the course of the next eight years (considering it’s a nine-year cycle). Incidentally, my findings show numbers represent events and circumstances; they don’t make things happen.

You’ll notice trends symbolized by the nine-year Universal Year cycle. For example, by 2008 (a 1 Universal Year), it was finally feasible to be mobile with one’s work, in terms of technology. Laptops and power adaptors started to become far less bulky, Internet access was easier to find and speeds were finally reasonable, smart phones were becoming the norm, and they didn’t require constant charging. It took a couple more years, but by 2010 things had progressed just a bit more to the point where one could be comfortably mobile with his or her work.

Now, 2017, perhaps we’ll see some more exciting technology developments over the next few years (e.g., machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc.), which will become the norm by 2026.

Cusp periods carry over as far as 50% into the next cycle, so new starts (in a universal sense) are still appropriate well into 2018, but by July 2018 things will be slowing down significantly, in a manner of speaking.

Balanced 1 energy is symbolic of the following, for example: new beginnings; key advances; change of direction, originality; practicality; confidence; initiative; abundance of inspirational creativity, as with that of a successful performer; fine intellect; worthy competitor; financial rewards; leadership. Examples of under-balanced 1 energy include insecurity, submissiveness, and spinelessness. Examples of over-balanced 1 energy include jealousy, selfishness, elitism, addiction, and excessive aggression.

Aside from universal trends like the one illustrated above, astrology and numerology aren’t like the weather. Universal predictions that apply to everyone on a personal level are nonexistent because each universal factor (e.g., Universal Year) relates to each person differently. The universal energy is important, but how it harmonizes with your natal patterns prevails.

Even so, you can get an idea of the cyclical nature of time by tracking select universal cycles, such as the Universal Year.

The Great Failed Relationship Dilemma

August 28th, 2017
Share Button

It may surprise you that many relationships are predetermined to not last forever, that is, end sooner than expected.

An acquaintance recently endured a painful divorce. She did everything the way she was supposed to, including treating her mate with dignity, love, and respect. Her mate got tired of the relationship and left her for another lover.

The problem is that sometimes, no matter what you do, things don’t go the way you want.

Before you call me a fatalist, let’s agree that you can’t choose the way you’ll be tested in life, no matter how much you strive toward your goals, or how many inspirational books you read.

The term “failed relationship” is reminiscent of expecting a beloved pet to live as long as you do. It’s a misnomer for a relationship that lasted as long as it was predestined to last.

It’s not cruel to point out the truth of the matter when you look at it from a spiritual perspective: it was her predetermined path to experience what she experienced, including the pain of the separation.

She knew deep within her subconscious mind from the very beginning that the relationship wasn’t going to be life-long and that her ex wasn’t the monogamous type. “But her mate should have stayed with it,” the idealists say. Yes, it’s best to do all you can to save a relationship, but sometimes, when it’s over, it’s over.

The patterns in her comprehensive astrology and numerology charts symbolize the rough break-up outlined above and did so from the moment she was born.

It isn’t my job to explain why, by the way. For whatever reason, her soul (not her personality) chose that particular life occurrence. I didn’t share my findings with her until after the divorce, though if she had inquired, I would have. Extreme patterns symbolizing significant, troublesome (or the opposite) life episodes are easy for me to identify, though, understandably, not so easy for others to digest.

She couldn’t have been “smarter from the beginning” about the situation. Time and time again, personal fate (the “good” and the “bad”) manifests as outlined in the esoteric patterns and there’s nothing you can do to avoid it, especially since the key “decisions” also appear to be fated. The “unexplainable draw,” the glue that helps to bring about personal predetermination is a relentlessly fascinating study, whether the ultimate karmic plan is rewarding or challenging.

My philosophy is that you should strive to be optimistic and you shouldn’t discourage impressionable people (e.g., children), but don’t exploit their innocence either and tell them anyone can have a harmonious, life-long relationship as long as they are fair-minded.

One solution to this dilemma is to be more business-like about relationships, but few people are willing to do that due to it potentially “killing the romance.” So you have a choice: continue to be swept away by Neptune’s illusion, or avoid the crowd-pleasing platitudes and escapist notions and squarely face reality so that life becomes more tolerable and ultimately more enjoyable.
