New session recording delivery system For the last few months, I have been using an online delivery service which is fast, easy and secure.

In addition to speed and convenience, this is a much more planet-friendly way to get your recording.

Sessions are intended to be relatively short-term to assist in weathering difficult cycles, and to build client coping skills and independence as rapidly as possible. In this work, astrology may be used, but would not be the primary modality.

  • Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for Oct. - Dec. 2008
  • Discussion: Do You Believe in Astrology?
  • Ask the Magi
    "Can you explain more about the Saturn-Jupiter and Saturn-Chiron midpoints?"

    The more I watch the transiting effects of these two midpoints, the more I am convinced that they are a key factor in understanding the likely influences of any given time. With the typical consistency of Magi Astrology, two of the worst inter-aspects in comparison charts (Saturn-Chiron clash = Heartbreak Clash, Saturn-Jupiter clash = Nuclear Clash) equate to the two most difficult transiting midpoints.

    Each of the "ugly twins" as I call them has a different vibration. The Saturn-Chiron "Heartbreak" midpoint forms Heartbreak transits when applying in a clash aspect to natal Sun, Moon, or Chiron. The effects of these transits are all similar to the classic transiting Saturn clash to natal Chiron- making a person more vulnerable to heartbreak or at least heartache.

    The Saturn-Jupiter "Nuclear" midpoint seems to spawn difficulties and misunderstandings by transit as does a Nuclear Clash in a relationship, but with a different twist. Any natal planet affected by a Sat-Jup midpoint applying clash transit can become distorted and misunderstood. If the natal planet is Sun, the distortion occurs in one's sense of self. If Chiron, relationships are misunderstood. If Venus, one's appearance and/or finances can be impacted. With Mercury, critical errors in judgment can occur.

    Further, the Saturn-Jupiter midpoint brings a chaotic energy to the systems it is influencing. At times it's as if there's a "gremlin slumber party in your head." Wild thinking, wild worries, wild fears, and wild behavior can take over unless we are prepared not be swayed from our normal course by this negative influence.

    As with any transit, an understanding of the likely effects of current influences along with the knowledge of when difficult cycles will end can help people to avoid driving themselves crazy or taking actions they will later regret during stressful transits. Knowledge is power, and a knowledge of Magi Astrology can help us make the most of good times and avoid catastrophic errors during bad times.

    **Please note: these explanations ONLY pertain to the transiting midpoints, NOT natal midpoints.

    Patterns in the Sky- Third Quarter 2008
       Patterns in the Sky
    describes major planetary patterns for this quarter.
    Please be aware that the individual effects of Patterns in the Sky will be improved by, or worsened by, your personal transits. The last 2-3 days listed in each date range (the peak of the cycle) will be the dates when the pattern is strongest. In the case of difficult cycles, actions which are unavoidable should be taken
    as early in the cycle as possible, as the cycle's negative effects are most detrimental at the cycle's peak. With positive cycles, actions should be taken as close to the peak  as possible to maximize the cycle's positive influence. The single simplest and most powerful way anyone can use astrology is to avoid universally bad days for new initiatives.

    Through October 8: Saturn is applying by quincunx to Chiron, creating another Universal Heartbreak cycle. Avoid this time for new meetings or important new beginnings.

    October 10-11: The applying trans-dimensional square of the Saturn-Jupiter midpoint to Chiron is exacerbated by an applying quincunx to Earth. Take great care with all relationships- poor judgment could cause real harm.

    October 30- late December: Applying trans-dimensional afflictions to Neptune (geo Saturn quincunx Neptune, helio Sat./Jup square Neptune) may negatively impact matters ranging from romance and ideals to real-estate and medicine, and won't help economic woes. Saturn stations at 21 Virgo in late December before going retrograde Dec. 31, and while it doesn't complete its transit to Neptune this time around, it does get close. The Saturn/Jupiter midpoint transit to Neptune in helio. goes exact Dec. 21.

    November 11-12: The Neptune afflictions are worsened by a helio Sat/Jup-Neptune-Earth T-Square. No new business initiatives should be started now.



    Quarterly Predictions for each Zodiac Sign for July - September 2008

    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: Hard work can really pay off now and you have the discipline to move mountains. Remember your long-range goals if you get impatient. Your friendly and likeable way wins you new fans. Giving of yourself to others can be very rewarding, whether you are doing volunteer work or just being a true-blue friend. A focus on love relationships can be positive or negative- stay busy with loved ones to keep energies from becoming stagnant. If you are single, an exciting new love could met while traveling, but do give this person time to prove themselves worthwhile before making a commitment.

    Taurus- Apr 21- May 21:  You'll be happiest this quarter if you keep moving. Staying active and tackling big projects can resolve most frustrations. Extra time spent romancing your beloved should keep the relationship from becoming snappish most of the time. This may not be a time when you are able to play too much- various demands seem to take precedence over recreational opportunities. Plan ahead in financial matters now. Travel can open up new opportunities and provide new insights. If friendships don't give you what you want now, don't be too quick to judge or take offence- try to be patient.

    Gemini- May 22- Jun 21:  Long-term relationships will likely enjoy a period of high romance and heavy breathing this quarter, if you can break away from work long enough to enjoy this. Your career continues to be full or surprises, and at times, amazing strokes of luck. Your partner's income could receive a boost. Some limitations in your home life may be unavoidable at this time- be patient. Use your high energies to get things done- if you get cranky, get busy with something productive and your equanimity will soon be restored.

    Cancer- Jun 22- Jul 23:  Single Cancerians could have a very full dance card now, and you could meet new flames in very mundane locations. If you are in a committed relationship, this could be a time of steady growth and satisfaction. At work, this is an excellent time to build alliances which will serve you in the future. Travel can be exciting now and filled with the unexpected. Try not to be restrictive of other's communication, and keep your own commentary light and non-judgmental. You may have trouble relaxing if you have too much on your mind.

    Leo- Jul 24- Aug 23:  Clean out closets and actively take on other domestic chores to avoid the build-up of contentious energies- this is not the time to be a couch potato!  This may not be the easiest period financially- your own income may be limited and your partner's income could be uneven. Still, your reliability does not go unnoticed and should be rewarded in the future. If you are single, this could be a very sexy time, but take time to be sure a potential new love is all that they seem. Lions already mated will find sweet times with their partner.

    Virgo- Aug 24- Sep 23:  Stay upbeat and flexible and remember you don't need to police or micro-manage anyone. Squeezing too tightly just creates rebellion- trust that things will sort themselves out without your intervention. If you let go, things can find their true level. A creative approach to daily tasks allow you to perform them with true dedication. Deliberately soften your words before you open your mouth as you could sound too harsh or strident without meaning to for part of the quarter. It's a great time to plan future career steps, and there should also be time to relax and enjoy life.

    Libra- Sep 24- Oct 23:  Expect lots of activity in the money-earning arena for at least part of this quarter. An occasional financial disagreement could also crop up here and there. Your home life is likely to continue being a source of calm and protection. Allow yourself breaks in the routine whenever you can- your patience for repetitive tasks is low now, and for some time to come. Creative outlets of any kind are much appreciated now, and your talent in these areas could reach new heights. Verbal seduction can be unusually effective about mid-quarter.

    Scorpio- Oct 24- Nov 22:  You are filled with energy for much of the quarter but may find you are also impatient and even testy. Cash flow should be excellent and new income streams could even open up. Relationships with friends are somewhat limited now or just not very enjoyable. If you are single, unusual people are on the horizon. Children are unpredictable and certainly not interested in too much conformity. Even so, your domestic life could be especially sweet and dear to you. Financial plans could include forming partnerships. Enjoy co-workers and shared tasks.

    Sagittarius- Nov 23- Dec 22:  Your animal magnetism is at a real peak during at least a portion of the quarter, and you could be quite frustrated if you don't have a partner, or if your partner is feeling more cerebral than physical. Romantic plans may be in the works. Otherwise, you may feel somewhat private, or needing a retreat. Do be sure not to repress anger- it's far better to find healthy and constructive ways to express frustrations. You have a poetic gift for communication now, whether verbal or written. Things continue to change at home. Take a patient and long-term view toward career.

    Capricorn- Dec 23- Jan 20: You are especially helpful and caring now and can be a shining light to others. Financial windfalls are a possibility this quarter, and you are likely to land on your feet even in the event of short-term fiscal difficulty. Friendships may be important now, with lots of mental stimulation and interplay. Any spats with pals which arise should quickly resolve. In other situations communications may be uneven in general, and you may not see eye-to-eye with those in authority. Though it may not be apparent to those around you, you may want to keep a big part of your life private and confidential now.

    Aquarius- Jan 21- Feb 19:  You are everyone's darling now, at least on the face of things. Work and public life are a key now, and you apply great energy to advancement. Financial tugs-of-war can be difficult, and outside limitations in these matters may be especially frustrating. Friendships could become sexual if you are single, but this might be ill-advised in the long run-things may not be quite what they seem or you may not be thinking clearly.


    Friendships continue their cycle of change- new friends may enter your life, old friendships may end or transform themselves. Whatever happens, this area of your life will likely act as a force for personal evolution as well as for your benefit in general. Committed romantic relationships will probably go through moments of sweetness and moments of limitation during this quarter. Keep your feet on the ground and your vision crystal clear in career as self-deception in this area is a possibility. Planning on the home front is a strong possibility. Financial matters are still likely to be less stable than you might wish.

    Pisces- Feb 20- Mar 20:  Existing partnerships find both tenderness and sex highlighted- if too much bickering is going on, more lovemaking should cure that. Your mind is working in a very detailed and disciplined way now- so be sure to put it to good use. It may be hard to perform your daily tasks without resentment or impediments now- an attitude adjustment may be called for, and this will make things much easier to handle. Your career should be moving in excellent directions. Conformity is just about last on your list now and you probably are enjoying being a bit shocking at times.


    Keys to Enjoying Life

    Despite politics, economic issues and whatever is going on all around us, we can keep our own center. Amid all the tumult of modern life- we can be happy.

    Here are some central keys to enjoying life which we can utilize at any time:

    Recognize the good times. If in your personal life there is no major crisis, this is a good time. Major crises would be death, serious illness, divorce, betrayal, loss of a job, major financial reversal, etc. In this, forget about the rest of the world. Forget about perfection. Learn to recognize good times in your own life.

    See the beauty in each moment. Learn to notice the beautiful things in your world. Sunsets, trees, mountains, clouds, a lovely breeze, mouth-watering aromas, sweet scents, beautiful music, moving words, delicious food, a cool drink, a hot cup of coffee or tea, being cozy and warm, luscious soft textures. Be in your body and let your senses come alive. Find some beauty to enjoy right now.

    Share some love. Share love with your partner, a friend, a child, a pet, a plant, with someone in need, with Mother Earth. Perform a loving act. Send a loving thought. Send loving energy. Summoning loving feelings within yourself can BE the reward. Love circles and returns to you one way or another.

    Cultivate humor. Not hurtful or divisive humor, but good-humored humor. Let even dumb jokes bring a smile to your face. The more you can find funny, the more you can laugh. Share humor. Be silly. Make puns for yourself if you're alone. See the humor in situations.

    Let everything you do be about the people, too. At work, at home, at the grocery store, anywhere- most of the places we are there are others, too. Don't be so focused on the results that you don't value the people. Be polite and respectful. Brighten someone's day. There are countless opportunities every day for pleasant exchanges, and this positive energy returns to you.

    Don't get too caught up in outside concerns- in other people's lives & experiences. TV shows, news, tabloids, sports, politics, religion can all become obsessions which take you out of your own life. All this stuff is usually about other people, not about you personally. It's fine to enjoy and follow what you wish, but if something is upsetting and it's not actually part of your life, why make it a part? (Unless, of course, it is something about which you plan to take personal action.) If anything is displacing you as the center of your life, consider reclaiming your rightful position. Staying centered in your own experience and avoiding unnecessary outside unhappiness improves your life enormously.

    Don't say "yes" when you want to say "no." Learn to say "no" with dignity, gentleness, and certainty. Saying "yes" when you don't want to leads to harbored resentment in yourself and often just postpones the other person's disappointment.

    Don't envy anyone. If there is one thing I've learned in decades of listening to people, it's that no one gets away scot-free. Fame, wealth, power, beauty- nothing insulates us from disappointment and loss. Everyone has their share of trouble and sadness, whether it's apparent or not. Focus on making the most of YOUR life.

    Don't try to change anyone. IF someone changes, it's when THEY want to and how THEY want to. We're all imperfect anyway, so accept that. People are who they are. Take them or leave them.

    Do nothing when emotionally reactive. Act with clear thinking. If you're feeling reactive, the first thing to do is nothing. The second thing to do is nothing. Wait as long as necessary (this could be a LONG time) until you feel calm and clear before taking action.

    Cultivate satisfaction. Focus on what you have, not what you want. Let the glass be half-full. Give up perfection as an ideal or a goal. Let enough be enough.

    Forgive. Forgive yourself, your loved ones, your parents, your friends, your enemies, your boss, your employees, authority figures, world leaders. Release resentments and free yourself of the past. Let yourself be fresh and go forward cleansed. (This does not mean to allow yourself to be harmed a second time!)

    Find a spiritual belief system you can live with. Find a set of beliefs that gives you inner peace, a sense of security and gives the Universe meaning. Believe there is a Higher Purpose.

    Find a way to give back. Help an individual or group. Get involved in something greater than yourself.
