I have always considered myself a diligent back-upper, but my hard drive
crash at month-end surprised me with how many files I was still not
backing up fully. Please, to save yourself the unbelievable and

For students of Magi Astrology, I have
recently posted a new

I encourage your questions..... : )
"Hello, my Chiron is the sign of Sagittarius at 7 degrees retrograde in
my 3rd house. What does it mean when Mars is in Sagittarius? How would
that affect my Chiron?"
In Magi Astrology, we
would not give a lot of meaning to a transiting planet traveling through
the sign of a natal planet unless the transiting planet is within 3
degrees of a natal planet, and is applying.
At that point, we would interpret the transit based on the symbolisms of
Magi Astrology. In brief, when transiting Mars is conjunct natal Chiron,
we would imagine that domestic/familial relationships would "heat up,"
which could mean more activity and energy in the home/relationship,
and/or could mean more competition or even disputes. Since it's a
conjunction, more benign effects are likely. If you are unattached, this transit
could indicate a vigorous search for a soulmate.

"How can I change my karma? I don't want to keep going through
the same painful lessons in the next lifetime."
Obviously, none of us really know on a
demonstrable level what transpires in the afterlife, but most of us have
a belief in some kind of hereafter. Many believe that we incarnate again
and again in order to perfect our Souls, which enables us at the end of
our journey to return
fully into oneness with God-The-All-That-Is. The belief is that on a
Soul level, we put ourselves into experiences that will allow us the
opportunity to learn the lessons that our Soul needs to learn. Karma is
not punishment. Karma simply provides the opportunity to learn a needed
In a natal chart, the Soul Path is indicated
by the axis of the Moon's Nodes. The South Node, by sign, house, aspects
and geometry reveals the accumulated learning and habits of past lives.
These are strengths that we bring into this incarnation, but are the
polar opposite of the lessons we came into this lifetime to learn. We
can fall back on the strengths we built in prior incarnations, but we
cannot make them the thrust of our life this time around, tempting as
these familiar ways of being and operating can be.
The North Node,
by sign, house, aspects and geometry,
reveals the Soul Path we chose for ourselves prior to this incarnation.
The Soul requires that we pursue this Path, and will pull us out
of any situation (regardless of our personality attachment) which is a
hindrance to it. When we are on our Soul Path, life is deeply satisfying
in a way that we cannot know otherwise.
The way to show that we have learned a
karmic lesson is fairly simple: DO IT DIFFERENTLY. Time and time again,
we are tested. We are put in the path of what for us, as an individual,
is an ultimate temptation. When we respond the way we always have, we
demonstrate that we have not yet learned that lesson. If you want to be
complete with a Soul lesson, don't follow the temptation- respond in a
more evolved way.
Responding in an evolved way means
responding from the God within, which could be called "taking the high
road." When we respond naturally- in both our thinking and our actions-
out of love, compassion, understanding, tolerance, acceptance, etc., we
demonstrate that we have left a more primitive way of being behind.
We have to change our natural perception and change our natural behavior
to demonstrate that a lesson has been learned.
This is usually easier said than done!
Be patient with yourself. Learning our
Karmic lessons is what we're all here to do, and none of us are
finished, or we wouldn't be here. Just keep moving toward a naturally
evolved response in all situations, and trust that all of us are moving-
some faster, some more slowly- toward re-Union with God.
Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for October - December 2006
Quarterly predictions for each Zodiac Sign for October - December 2006:
Birthdate ranges shown may vary by a day or so either way. Be aware that
these are general predictions, and that a detailed analysis of your
personal transits and progressions will always show much more pinpoint
accuracy. As in all predictive columns, this is written based on the
Solar House system. If you know your Ascendant (Rising Sign) read that
section as well as your birth sign. I attempt to write these predictions
for all degrees of each sign, however, your own Sun and Ascendant may be
anything from 0°-30° of a sign. If these predictions seem way off, your
Sun or Ascendant may be at the extreme beginning or end of your sign. In
that case, check out the predictions for the sign immediately before or
after yours and you may find a closer match. (If you are a Pisces, check
out Aquarius and Aries, for example.)

Aries- Mar 21- Apr 20: Rams will find their focus on
the outer world in the fourth quarter. Partnerships of all kinds,
including financial alliances, will be spotlighted and should be highly
favorable. Both your sexual attractiveness and your sexual drive should
be high. The lead weight you feel like you have been carrying around
that prevents you from having fun should be easy to shed by early next
year. Try to get away over the holidays if you can.
Taurus- Apr 21- May 21:
Relationships are emphasized for Bulls too in the next 3 months,
though the focus is more on personal associations that financial ones.
If you are feeling cranky with your partner, it is likely that a romance
session is needed and will blow off the necessary steam. Single Taureans
may find a relationship becoming more serious. Don't be tempted to get
too far off the pragmatic path when it comes to your daily
responsibilities. Learning a new intellectual pursuit or just doing
mentally challenging projects will be satisfying.
Gemini- May 22- Jun 21:
You should be able to find pleasure in even monotonous tasks this
quarter, which is very convenient as you will be busy! Career changes
may seem surprising at first, but should be for the best in the long
run. Don't expect things to settle down very soon, though. You may be
feeling especially creative, and can feel free to enjoy the artistic
impulses as long as you don't forget your responsibilities in the
process. Late in the year, romance is highlighted and should be a
Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23:
All play and no work won't be dull this quarter, but don't lose
track of what must be done. Late in the year you'll have an easier time
buckling down. Financial restrictions which may have plagued you for
some time are on their way out, though perhaps not soon enough for you!
This is a time to be sure to share the spotlight and avoid being seen as
too much of a primadonna.
Don't be surprised if romantic plans take on a high level of importance.
Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23:
Your focus will most likely be on home and family for the last
quarter this year. Part of this will be an eat-drink-and-be-merry
celebration of the various holidays, part will likely be just a time out
from the rest of the world to recharge your batteries. Your lighthearted
ability to charm will return fairly soon after having spent some time
AWOL to your mystification. Your organizational abilities are strong
now, and you'll be able to whip almost anything into shape. Your primary
relationships should be especially sweet.
Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:
Both written and verbal communications are highlighted in the
first portion of the fourth quarter, later on, your focus will be on
domestic matters. Partnerships are continuing to move toward positive
changes- outmoded ways will not be allowed to persist. Trying to hold
onto the old will only create unexpected events, you must actively let
go of anything that has reached to end of its life span. You have a
genuine vocation for helping others now and you will find any kind of
work in that realm deeply satisfying.
Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:
You are working away toward your financial future now with the
assistance of boundless energy, great ideas and Lady Luck. Some of your
friendships may seem burdensome for a while yet- it's important not to
let them divert you from what you need to get done. A fast-paced and
changeable tempo is the rhythm of daily responsibilities- finding new
approaches to monotonous tasks will make them much more fun! In dating
and in relationships with children it's important to keep things
balanced- it would be very easy to give too much.
Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22: Though usually fairly private,
you will be more comfortable in the spotlight than usual this quarter.
By year-end, your attention will be directed toward financial matters,
which should remain strong. Sweetness in your home life will help to
balance career pressures. It is certainly time to "stand and deliver" in
your work, but rewards should flow commensurately with your efforts. One
thing to be aware of is a possible tendency to waste time on wild goose
chases or other ultimately unrewarding illusions. If single, your dating
life is still filled with surprises.
Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:
You may be subject to some delays in the early part of this
quarter, but a lot should come into fruition before year-end. It is
safest to expect the unexpected in your home life now- good ways to use
this energy would be to work on a home-improvement project of some kind,
or to make needed changes in domestic routines. You may still be
experiencing some limitations in your freedom- especially the freedom to
learn something new, or to travel. Patience will bring its own reward as
the stars shift. Friendships are close and supportive now. Watch that
waistline during the holidays!
Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20:
You are likely to be very involved with group associations, social
events, and just enjoying the company of friends in the fourth quarter-
especially early on. Later in the quarter, your life should settle down
somewhat, and you may find yourself wanting to spend extra time alone to
rest up. It is an excellent time to build alliances in your career for
extra momentum. Finances are fairly secure as long as you carefully
avoid involvement in any shaky investments or any other kind of monetary
wishful thinking. You analytical powers are at the forefront now.
Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:
You have a kind way about you that is very attractive to others
now, including 2- and 4-legged strays. Do be discerning about who you
take in and flea dip. Career matters are at the forefront, and you
should see some solid expansion in that area. Long-term relationships
may seem very looong now, but will lighten up as the stars shift. Money
matters are still somewhat unpredictable. Travel will allow you to make
new acquaintances, but don't forget the potential caveat concerning new
It is a creatively rich and enjoyable time.
Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20: Expose yourself to some new horizons
if at all possible this quarter. If you don't go somewhere or learn
something new, you can expect some seriously itchy feet. Day-to-day
responsibilities are a bit of a grind now, so some kind of escape would
be wonderful. You are still impatient with personal restrictions, and
conformity is definitely not your strong suit now. Career matters may be
intense; be very sure to play fair. Your spirituality should be quite
deep and meaningful now, and should provide a welcome respite.
The Politics of Compassion
Perhaps this isn't exactly astrology-related, but my heart hurts seeing the
world as it is today. Hatred and division seem to be at the height of fashion for so many people. Despite this so-called era of "family values,"
and "compassionate conservatism," hatred and
judgment seem to hold more sway than in any time that I can remember in
the last 30+ years.
There could be many reasons for this. I think one major factor in the
flourishing of an atmosphere of hate could actually be many people's lack of sufficient
self-esteem. It is a basic human desire to want to feel like we are good
enough. One way for those with damaged self-esteem to feel more adequate
within themselves is to feel superior to others. This is far
easier than more evolved ways to have self-esteem, such as to heal our
old wounds, to stay in our integrity, to take responsibility for our
lives, to hold ourselves accountable, to consistently work for the
greatest good of all concerned.
An unfortunate side effect of this shadow human desire to feel superior
to others is that it offers a fertile ground for exploitation by
political and religious groups interested in population control. People
whose hatreds are stirred up are highly emotional and therefore easily
manipulated, since their logical minds are dormant. An old
aphorism states, "Twist the horse's lip with a cord
called hatred, and he will not notice what is happening underneath his
When feeling righteous, people can
often justify anything- even things that would normally fall outside of
their own acceptable range of behavior.
An entirely different way of viewing ourselves and others is with
compassion. Compassion allows for differences- and yes, even
imperfections- without judging them to be inferior. Compassion starts
with empathy, as we put ourselves in another's place and understand
their life from their own perspective. From empathy can come
understanding, which displaces judgment.
We don't have to place everything in a hierarchy. Differences can be
different and still be equal. We (or our group) do not have to own the
sole copy of "the book of truth." It is possible (and so very freeing)
to live in a world of many truths. Everyone else does not have to be
wrong for us to be right.
Compassion allows us to experience Universal Love toward everyone,
including those with whom we disagree. Compassion does not require a
two-way street- we can send compassion even to those who are sending us
hatred in return. Compassion relieves us of the burden of being judge
and jury. It allows us to substitute the serenity of acceptance for the
inner turmoil of judgment. Compassion brings us inner peace. But unless
we also stop judging the judgers and hating the haters, we are still
caught up in judgment and hate- we are still out of our compassion.
It is very difficult to manipulate people who hold the inward
compassion. Those who are clear and peaceful inside cannot be stirred
into action by hateful propaganda. They are able to see the broadest
truths and the highest paths. They are able to stay moral in the best
sense of the word.
I invite you to join with me and become another conscious objector to
the current zeitgeist of hate. If we want to seed and claim a world
of acceptance and love we have to start with ourselves. We have to move
out of judgment and into compassion. We have to consistently choose not
to buy into the highly persuasive messages of hate. We can't oppose the
zeitgeist of hate by hating it. Compassion for EVERYONE is the only way
we can oppose the politics of hatred. I invite you to move with me into
the world we can create as more and more of us choose the politics of
then, is my true religion, my simple faith. In this sense, there is no
need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for
complicated philosophy, doctrine, or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind,
is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. Love for others and respect
for their rights and dignity, no matter who or what they are: ultimately
these are all we need. So long as we practice these in our daily lives,
then no matter if we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in
Buddha or God, or follow some other religion or none at all, as long as
we have compassion for others and conduct ourselves with restraint out
of a sense of responsibility, there is no doubt we will be happy."
