AMERICA THE VIOLENT > what is the antidote?

America just had a birthday yesterday; 241st.  Teenager years in comparison to the rest of the world.

How do teenagers act? REBELLIOUS. Defiant. . Know it all.  Can't stand to be told ANYTHING.

FULL of energy. Dangerous energy. Impulsive. Quick to anger. Sulking can take over at any moment. Slamming of doors in the house, and 'go to your bedroom' sort of behavior. But most important- they are in growing pains. Teenagers are trying to figure out 'where they fit in'. They are very sensitive to being adorn. And when rejection comes, as it does to all of us at many ages,  teenagers get angry.

Anger is a mask for fear.

There is a lot of anger in America and the world. Let us not speak about 'the world' right now. Let us focus on our own backyard. America is in crisis pain. Growing pains. Serious communication issues are at hand. We really have our plate full- even though its recently been broken and super glue is suppose to keep it together. YOU CAN SEE THE CRACKS.

Every country has a chart, because just like humans they have a birth. Even though we can't say the EXACT moment the pen hit the paper in the constitution .. (various debates about this among astrologers)  we all agree that the 4th of July 1776 was a America's birth date. How united are the states right now? Not very.

So, what are we going to do about it? Because what is a country, but lots and lots of extended family.  And even if you do not like all the relatives that are visiting, or any of your relatives, we do have to live in the same space- (the place called AMERICA) somewhat.  

Looking at the stars for the "solar return" for the USA in 2017 tells a story. That story is not 'written in stone'. It is a general road map. A tool; to help you gauge the weather, the possibilities, the danger zones, the areas that just might create havoc if you do not pay heed.  One can venture off the path, get lost, discover lots about who you are when you are lost, scared, and alone.... or one can just hum along as if nothing on earth is deserving of  paying attention, and if you are lost and confused space aliens will discover you- so why pay any attention to the map? Praying does work wonders, yet, its not always smart to test fate and shrug off your own responsibility to PAYING ATTENTION to what is going down- before stage four cancer has developed; or a civil war. 

We are in a very serious year.

I consider 'a year' in this context to be 'birthday to birthday'.  Looking at aMErica's (typo intended)  Solar return chart- we see- a  Scorpio moon- in the 12th house. At the Sabian Symbol degree: A military band on the march. (27 Scorpio)... The moon is not at home in Scorpio, but its very power driven there. Its also extreme extreme extreme in emotions. No shades of grey. No even a sliver. The moon in the 12th house is -secrets. The moon represents the females of the country- and also the public. Nothing is read 'alone' in a chart- (if you are good at your job) every thing modifies everything else. A bit like the artist's palette.... one color can change another when its next to it.  Talk about throwing shade in a new context!  Some big butt shade is going to be thrown this year!

  Scorpio is also about 'transformation' and we as a country will grow, or sting/shoot ourselves to death.  The enemy is actually in our hidden subconscious. It has to be brought forth in order to have light shed on it. I guess people have really harbored hate for thy neighbor (in all forms)  and resentment that the neighbor has something they don't. Or that the neighbor can't be trusted and is going to STEAL what they have. Being Paranoid is also a Scorpio trait. (They are out to get me).. Envy and jealous energy is also big negative trait of Scorpio. (every sign has some lower energy- so don't be getting down on Scorpios)... One of the most dangerous elements of the scorpion energy is- that when backed into a corner they will sting themselves to death rather than admit defeat or surrender. AKA- staying in a war that can't be won. (or starting one). That is, unless they are operating on a higher transformation vibration.......which we know is always possible! Then, this very dark energy looks within, and has a 'dark night of the soul' moment. A deep staring down of ones own birth/death cycle can bring about new life- in the symbol of the EAGLE.  RISING ABOVE to get a higher- view. Having the urge and desire to focus so steady and with pinpointed laser sharpness that one transcends the very thing that has brought on fear, anger, hate and thus fears nothing- in a good way- because one realizes that YOU ARE HE. In other words- that neighbor you hate- is really you hating yourself, projecting it out on another! Its also THE CHRIST- MY FATHER AND I ARE ONE moment! This is deep. And so is Scorpio. You will not find a Scorpio EVER hanging any place but the deep end. All of this suggest- that - we have choices this birthday to birthday in how we are going to 'act out' emotionally in this country.

We are all part of a bigger picture. So vast so unlimited that the tiny 'mind' can not comprehended this until the ego dies. This is not territory for the weak. This is major combat spiritual investigation. And America is in this area right now. That means our collective emotional body- is swimming in deep waters. Some will drown. This is a fact.

But the stars to not 'command' they are sign posts- to help you along the way. They are a language- helping you to discover the story. YOU make the ending happy or sad by your own attitude. YOU can react or not. YOU can be happy or sad. YOU can make the choice of love or hate. When people are doing this in MASS it becomes a movement. It becomes a sea of change. So do we face our demons- stare them down- transcend them- and go higher than the little ego (me me me, oh, more of me, he did this to me, bla bla bla)....  or do we sit silent in the dark and investigate WHY it is that America has become the most dangerous country to itself...?  Got news for you- the enemy isn't outside- its inside, and its name is FEAR. (OF DEATH- of your world changing, of your world not changing-etc). 

Well, now that we've gotten it clear where we are- as a country- let's look at how to work with this energy- on a level that brings in other factors..... such as- WHERE our (USA)  Sun Sign (Cancer) is for the return chart. 

It represents- our leader- and its in the 7th house of OTHERS.  YES.  Its in a T-sq (crowbar) with Jupiter (other countries, the law, justice, partnerships) in the 10th and Pluto (government, the bomb, the chemo, the snake shedding its skin)in the 2nd.  ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY/VALUES and LEARNING to get along with others!

IT is about creating JOBS. JOBS. JOBS.  Did I scream it loud enough?  People NEED JOBS- to not feel in FEAR. Its easy to 'say' you are going to create jobs, bring the jobs home, etc....It will not be easy- it will take compromise, but it has to be done. Jupiter at the top of the chart- shows a lot of 'hot air' being blown from government (10th house rules government and heads of state) Jupiter is in Libra. So things that need to be said- looked at and understood are being ignore because its not so pleasant. Jupiter in Libra doesn't like to work so hard.  "Oh, just agree with me!"   The t-sq says that partnerships are very tricky for us this birthday to birthday...there just might be a costly divorce. So, keep your attention on your awareness of the constitution and what it stands for! Write your leaders at a local level and higher up. ORGANIZE.  This is a powerful configuration for DIRECT ACTIVISM

Venus in the USA SOLAR RETURN Chart- is in the very last degree of Taurus. This is - the Medusa placement- the weeping sisters placement. It is about wealth...or lack of. Being int he 6th house- its about public service sector. Its about transportation. Our bridges, our roads, our I type, on the chopping block is Amtrak's across the country train system. If you do not scream loud and long- its going to go. Lots of things are going to go. LOTS- if you do not SCREAM.  Again key words:  DIRECT ACTIVISM. 


YOU simply cannot afford to be a couch potato if you depend on public services to survive.  

The very skeletal system of this country is being changed.

If you do not agree with it- you had better find your voice. Start singing- like they did in the 60's....gathering with your tribe and like minded soul brothers and sisters. We are part of a global family, and if you do not want a divorce from that global family, speak NOW!  If you do not want a faith FORCED on you SPEAK NOW!

Saturn rising in the chart- in Sagittarius in the first house- and retrograde. There is a movement (in government)  to 'go back' to some place to limited (Saturn rules limits/rules) views on faith (sag). Its the blinders are on placement. My faith is the 'only' faith.  This is also- student debt.  What do you think will happen if half of the students default on their insane student debts?  That would be a crisis that would make the housing bubble look like a tea party...(oops...let's say a cocktail party)....

What can we do about this? Dialogue!   IF we can manage to 'drop the mother of all bombs'  we can think about creating a country that does something besides kill people and brag about it- how about creating a vast educational system that is affordable- how about bringing back two year vocational training to replace 'black lung coal jobs' (that aren't there anyhow).... We have a chance to use that Saturn in Sag in the first to go back to a cannon of training that provided good jobs- with security and then bring in an economical boom! You can not 'buy things' and stimulate the economy if you do not have money for food, water, shelter and clothing. We have to return to the basics, and I am not talking about bible study, I am speaking of plain and simple - caring for your fellow human beings.

Compassion and loyal deep friendships with each other will make a platform for building communications to solve our differences. We are not suppose to all think alike. This is what makes for fusion and interesting inventions! Who wants a cookie cutter world? Where we all think exactly the same way, eat the same foods, pray in the same way,  let no outside ideas in because we might melt if we allow our brains to open a bit, etc. That is robot world.  That is North Korea. 

 I have spent this month's column on a focus - of America. For a reason- we are in crisis. We are about to overdose on hate. IF that is world you want to live in- please do it alone, in your own bedroom. 

For those that do not want that world- I say two words:


It's the 60's again get ready to dance in the streets, while you still can. 

Let's have a love fest like we did on Jan 21st 2017, and let it begin with me.

Now blow those candles out- and make a wish-

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA! Let's eat cake! Let's share it with all.

traffic signals

Lots of shifting energy today, as Mercury moves into its own sign- Gemini, and Venus has moved into HER own sign of Taurus!  The energy movement will continue all month- as Jupiter stations DIRECT on June 9th...(justice will prevail)... and on that same day we have a full moon in Sag, which gives a double dose of -law, justice, international relations. THE DETAILS do matter. Interestingly Comey will testify on the 8th... about the Russian 'situation' ...and what will that mean for you and me?

Lots more debate with everyone about who said what and what it meant when they said it. Sag is about international and Gemini is about words. The big issue -umbrella is- does international affairs effect the common man?  Yes, I believe they do. And not only is the Russia issue on hand, but how we get along with our fellow neighbors on planet earth. There is no other 'home planet'.  Being useful this full moon can have you exploring new ways of viewing the situation. You might not change your over all feeling..... but then you might. Because shortly after this full moon NEPTUNE turns retrograde.  Neptune goes undercover- and that's perfect for this planet.  Things that are 'unsaid' are just as important as what isn't. America and the entire world is becoming very distrustful of well, everyone!

Let's break this down:

Jupiter direct- helps bring out the need for checks and balances. Not only in the USA government, but in your own life. What has been left not said- but doesn't seem fair to you? Can you express your discomfort in a calm, intellectual manner to find a compromise? I think so. As Jupiter in Libra is all about FAIRNESS. And being a good judge. Its the see-saw image- is one person (or country) taking on all the effort?  Are you always the one who scrubs the toilet?  Jupiter in Libra helps us to work out our difference- and come clean.  Yet, that Jupiter in Libra is in a complicated relationship to Neptune right now.  An inconjunct its called. Its 150 degrees... means it takes some work to figure it all out... figure what out you ask-  what's going on- that's been UNSEEN until now.  Its about uncovering the truth. That takes work and calmness to do correctly.  But just as Jupiter goes direct, Neptune goes retrograde- undercover!  So the seesaw is not really in balance, just yet...coz there is some tricky stuff going on here.....and you have to watch carefully to get to the facts.  Sleigh of hand will be common....magic trick..... the cards are played, but hey, where did that other card go?  You know you saw it...but now, its gone.  Just like the deal you made with your self to stick to your diet.

Lying to the self is the real issue here.  We condition ourselves to believe what we want to hear.  This month- we will all grow more if we face SQUARELY what is presented.  Be it in our government or in our own church or home. Taken further it can also be about the hidden costs of education. Once the facts are undeniable... you might just lose some faith; in all that you thought to be true.  AKA- disappointment in humans. But not all is doom and sadness...(even though it certainly feels like it at times).... this complicated relationship between Jupiter and Neptune will allow for some down right unusual creations.... its like the odd beats of bellying dancing music... its more interesting but not easy to master. Its not comfortable, but certainly worth exploring. You can apply this to relationships the next 5 weeks. Go outside your comfort zone to find some mystical experience. The mystery in love and getting along is holding space for being right and wrong at the same time.

Mercury is moving into the very comfy chatty chatty sign of Gemini for the next two weeks. Make most of this! Clear the cobwebs and reorganize the rooms in your life.  Venus will also be hanging with her fav bud Taurus all of June and these two planets in their own ruling signs makes ideas to creation MUCH easier! The ideas will flow and the 'seeing' of the design will not be blocked. Words of love also combine with security and intellectual banner... back and forth fun flirting... we all need a bit more of that in these times of challenge.

Mars is in Cancer now....and that's not the best fit- but it has its in the kitchen cooking up your comfort foods! Mars will be giving your emotions an extra punch of  "feelings rule" and so.... when the moon changes signs every couple days, your mood might too. Better to sit with things for a while before making FIRM LASTING commitments this month. Do what brings you a sense of community and belonging. Rearrange the furniture instead of  painting the house fuchsia.

The Solstice this year falls- June 20th @ 9:24 pm PDT..... SUMMER IS HERE!  The new moon at 3 Cancer falls three days later....excellent for planning your community get 2 gether!  Overall focus on what ideas you have that bring more love into your life and less arguing. BUT...stand up for yourself when needed. It is not about pushing conflict down, its about learning a way to find the compromise. Deepen your faith instead of a need to escape the difficult issues in your life.

And remember... the signal light always CHANGES.  IF its green, its going to be red at one point and of course yellow is always for the risk takers in the world. You have options!

finding your sunshine on a cloudy day

The moon's north node is moving into LEO.... time to find your sunshine. 

What are the nodes?  They are points - not planets-.... very important points in the astrological wheel that give us some big hints as to where we need to grow and with whom and how.

The North Node can point to what you need to develop this lifetime, South Node is considered to show what you have perfected already.  Think of it as a very important intersection- which you need to pay attention during the crossing of.

The transiting nodes are now about to shift signs. 

The last time the north node entered 29 Leo was Oct  21st 1998. They travel backwards through the Zodiac.  Since the Nodes are always are polar opposite- the South node was in Aquarius. They stayed in this axis until April 2000.

THINK BACK...... I know its hard to remember as you get older the events going on decades ago- but KEY events are easy to remember.  What made you SHINE then?   We are in a new cycle of polishing off our dust, and discovering our sunshine.

 The transiting nodes have been traveling through the Virgo/Pisces axis... So we've BEEN discovering how to work better, smarter, with finer details for many years now. Time to put the skills you've honed to use and display your leadership and performance traits.

This shift is huge- and its will begin on May 10 2017.

Since Leo is ruled by the Sun- look to your birth Sun sign to get clues in HOW to shine. This will not upstage your birth node placement..(which likely will be different) just adds more information to the plot of how you can be more of you.....and allow your SUN SIGN to lead you.

 Also what HOUSE the nodes are currently traveling through explores the area where you can get your glow on. Unless you know your birth chart, you'll need an astrologer for this.  Check where 29 Leo falls in your birth chart, combine that house and its opposite with your Sun sign info and you've got a good start in manifesting some sparkle, zip and zap to your life.

I find that usually one is DRAWN naturally to the areas that we can develop. The trip up is when we give up before getting GOOD at what we begin.  People seemed to be naturally wired to get frustrated if they don't get A's the first go around. If the approach is changed to understanding that WE WILL be good one day at a time, and applying PLAY to the project and not PRESSURE it gives sunshine on a cloudy day.  We move the clouds away with our attitude.

The thing to also take in is that the Eclipses will now be focused on this Leo/Aquarius axis.

Prepare now- months before the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo at 29 degrees- to how you wish to birth - yourself into a new being.... its not always comfortable. Do not give up. How can you be a higher person? Find this out for yourself before the eclipse comes. Ask your self who your role models are- and pick a trait they express which you admire.... try to follow that.

I have been reading a really great transformative book.

"THE WAVE"  By Sonali Deraniyagala. She's one amazing woman. Her life was turned inside out upside down and forever set on a different path by the Tsunami that hit Sri Lanka in 2004. You know, the largest natural disaster to ever befall. 240k people left with that wave. She lost her parents, her husband, her two young children. One moment you are having vacation memories, the next you do not have a family anymore. Puts life in perceptive.  Puts pain and struggle in perspective. Be thankful if you do not have to bear such suffering in this life. I learn from how those who are dealt such trials manage to find the sunshine again.

Many on earth have to suffer huge huge losses. If we can listen to their stories we can grow in the heart and suddenly our own life seems blessed beyond belief.

The Tsunami that hit Sri Lanka and Thailand in 2004 was an event that on an astrological level - is tied to Mars triggering a previous Solar Eclipse. Nov 23 2003 there was a Solar Eclipse at '0' Sag. The day of the wave- Mars moved into '0' Sag. Mars has this placement every two years, however so close to the previous Solar Eclipse position made it a 'trigger' for a huge mundane event.  It was also the day that the nodes were in the critical degree of Zero Scorpio- about to move back into Libra (they travel backwards remember). This is why I am always going on about Mars triggering Eclipse points. Eclipses are ACTIVE long past the day they occur.  They do not always have tragic manifestations- but they DO change the direction of our lives!  And often are seen to bring events into the world that become headlines.

Mars in the sky is now moving to trigger the Lunar Eclipse of Sept 2016.... this will happen the last 10 days of May. So you can review what you need to let go of- now, to make room for a new beginning. Old belief systems come to mind- as that Lunar Eclipse was in the sign Pisces tied to what we believe. We might see some wacky weather, and words too!  People are really hot headed these days... Mars is in Gemini and so this triggering of the Pisces Lunar Eclipse of 2016 will demand that you make friends with compassion and TRUTH in order to not drown in the swamp of depression and doubt.  On the up swing you can use your imagination to its fullest and a bit of sarcastic dark humor will go far.

This month Mars will also be in a hard aspect to Neptune...this brings forth a great imagination- but also for those with forked tongues gives double talk. Listen carefully to what is being promised around  May 9th- 20th.  People will promise the moon while only being able to deliver the burnt out bulb. Do not be gullible, if its too good to be true...............then triple check or walk away. Mars will also make flowing energy to we really can all get along- as long as we zip the harsh words. This is a great aspect for company projects - that allow for a ROUND TABLE...pass the ideas around and try many.

ALL month Venus is in me first Aries. Be brave in love. See youthful cheerfulness as a joy but not a long term commitment to ever after. Aries is very much smitten but only at first bite. You can have lots of first bites in May.

On May 25th there is a new moon at five degrees Gemini.... so get your double sunshine on... move the fingers and the toes and dance your way past the clouds... fast moving fingers of Steve Ray Vaughan will help you with a double trouble sunshine sort of day!

shadow gazing

Saturn stations retrograde at 10:06 pm PDT tonight.

He'll be doing the back stroke for several months.

Time to 'shadow gaze'.

What does that mean?

Look at what gives you a sense of being, knowing that you exist no matter what. BUT what exist? What is hidden from your sight? The light has to be way way bright for you to actually see your shadow...your 'out line' that falls on the earth.  What 'outlines' do you create in the day to day that aren't always seen? What boundaries do you never let yourself go outside of, because you are unsure.... Are they helpful to you? Do these 'rules' guide you to keep a firm foundation in reality? Or do they hold you back because you fear the unknown or someone told you LONG ago- "don't go there"...."you can't go there, you aren't......(fill in the blank) ........enough".

Saturn is always about structure. Also it represents 'authority'..... the first 'authority' that we come under is usually our parents. Some people NEVER let go of trying to gain the parental approval....they can be 50, 60 even 90 and still be searching for that secure feeling that Mom and Pop have granted the seal of 'love via accomplishment.  Or in someway desperate for 'other's' stamp of "you're OK"...."you're accepted".... "you have arrived"....

  This takes some deep looking  INSIDE  your beliefs to uncover patterns that MAY be holding you back.  Even the desire to have NO BOUNDARIES can be a way of  seeking approval..."I will show them! I will break all the rules, and do it my way, and then they will see- I am right and worthy!".   Since Saturn rules structure- sometimes we rebel against it, to have our own defined rules and guidelines. That is a good thing- unless its just a hidden way of setting our self up for failure because of the hidden shadow - seeking the A+ -from others...and not from the SELF first.  Seeking to fail unconsciously, to prove them right, that hey, really I am not able to be Saturn (mature) after all.

When we KNOW THYSELF....deeply, we realize the only person we need to have the nod from, is the higher self. The rest of society may never 'get, or support you'.... but if you know you are following the path that YOU wish for all the rest melts away. Self determination leads in a very healthy way.

So- spend the next four months making choices that work for you- and your goals. To do that you have to sit down and have an honest conversation with yourself what those goals are. What you wish to achieve and what has held you back. IF that applies.

Its also- the time to review- teeth (care) bones (strengthen) posture....are you bending correctly at the knees when you pick up heavy items...... Saturn rules all these areas. What are you 'backbones' in life? (church, family, etc) you need to review your participation in these organizations, is it time to LEAD in some of them?

WHAT role do you wish for GOVERNMENT to play in your life? Are you HAPPY with your governments actions? IF not, well then- time to look at the Shadow!  Why don't you speak up for your rights?

You see where I am going. This is good use of Saturn in retrograde mode. Make the most of it.

We also have this month VENUS stationing DIRECT on April 15th!  She'll be at 27 Pisces in a tight square to Saturn retrograde....are you getting all the loving you want? IF not, time to move forward in love giving and figure out how to 'set that up'.... its not magical with this combo- it takes effort.

Creative enterprises will also demand more of you........with what seems little reward...but that will pass as Venus moves into Aries (again) and the instant attraction comes around on the merry go.... (April 28th). Venus will then stay in Aries until the first week of we have a chance to take these (projects, relationships, etc) to the next step.

Mercury also goes retrograde this month- for 3 weeks.. on April 9th- May 3rd.... at the degree of 5 Taurus..... where's the money disappearing to? How can I hide it? And should I dig out that idea for making money that I had oh, so long ago? (yes). Taurus is earth energy- so work with the earth!  Dig not into JUST  how to make money, but how to have your resources grow....take classes, get out and meet new contacts, research new avenues for not just money's sake but pleasure.....sign up for a wood carving class.........redo the cabinets in the kitchen or spend some time planning the over due remodel job on the house. Paint a new color to your life and YOUR abode.

Pluto  ALSO will be doing a backward move on April 20th.  Government will be going undercover.
Power is within.

On the 21st Mars enters the sign of the twins- Gemini. Gift of the gab will be everyone's great trait. During this period Mercury and Mars will be in whats called- Mutual Reception...what that means is the power of the WORD, and contracts become a major force to be reckoned with. WHO SAID WHAT and WHEN will matter...and the mighty pen is a sword until May 15th. The press is going to go crazy. Get out in nature and out of your head if you can. Things will speed up to a lightening level. If you are writing- this will be a very prolific period for you.

All of April is about making peace with the shadow, befriending it, and what fun shadow dancing can be by a campfire! Positive and Negative are needed for a wholistic view. Sometimes we have to dive into the darkness to see the light.

Fearful America in Crisis


where is the balance?  where is the Justice?  How will we manage?

Most of us in America, do not want to turn away the rest of the world in fear.  But that is exactly what is happening. FEAR is the one thing that is an inside job that must be controlled and held at bay, for anyone or any country to expand and grow. To grow in fear is to have cancer.  America has a very dangerous cancer growing.

Tonight the sitting president (from now on to be referred as tsp) will address the congress. This takes place at 9pm in Washington.  Here's the chart. 

I will give a layman's term with some astrology references.... Basic message will be: "No, one loves America more than me." (it always starts and ends with tsp).  The love of defense and guns, more power and being the biggest bully on the playground is what this message is all about. Its also about making sure everyone is fearful. Very fearful. From the unknown. From all those 'others' that want to cause us harm. The irony is, right now IN AMERICA, from within- we have a crisis in our Jewish communities being threaten by the extreme nut cases of the right wing. tsp isn't addressing that. Nor is he addressing the two hard working Indian engineers (who have worked and lived here for a decade)  who were gunned down last Wed, in Kansas by a white homegrown terrorist. tsp hasn't addressed or even mentioned that. Or offered condoles to one man's widow.  This is our cancer. Its within our own- homegrown- and being fueled by the lack of any counter from the tsp. Its shameful and alarming when its at the top. He will talk about jobs, jobs, jobs... it has yet to be seen if he has a concrete plan (other than the wall) of how jobs will come to Americans in need. Coal is promised, and since they just passed a law allowing coal companies to dump chemicals in streams, that might come, but at the cost of polluting our air and water. America is in Crisis to be sure.


We won't for a while. Mars (aggression/military/lets get this done!) is in Aries (my pov is the only pov) has just locked up with Uranus (sudden, explosive, and the brotherhood)... this lock happened on Oscar night  (hence the bomb-ending surprise) ... its being triggered (more fuel on the raging fire) by Jupiter ( law, study, how one relates and expands, other countries, cultures) in retrograde -in the sign of Libra...the balance is lost, hidden from view right now. It is only within that you will find it.  Laws being pushed through are creating more aggravation towards our country. A clear message being sent is- to come here- to USA- you must not be different from us, you must have the same faith, you must not be dark-skinned, you must not have ever traveled to any country we consider an enemy....(pretty much that list is growing to include the entire world outside of our borders).... its sends a message of intolerance for multi-multiculturalism that we were built its self-destructive. Wed, the day after the talk on why we need a zillion dollars for boarders, and weapons, to keep 'the bad guys out' ...the moon will trigger that Mars- Uranus opposition to Jupiter.  THIS IS MAJOR EARTHQUAKE ENERGY.

Earthquakes come in many forms.  They shake us up! Get ready for one big steamroller and fiery ride. The stage is being set for a battle, and if we allow tsp's rhetoric to go on unchecked we will draw (war)  to our  country. Because one of the laws of the Universe is- what you focus on- comes into being.

So, we must do the opposite...we must focus on unity, peace, faith in others' goodness. We must be united in peaceful warrior mode. To pretend that action won't be needed to counter the fear mongering is folly.

America's crisis- is growing deep. It is centered around greed, fear, and not EVER having 'enough'. It is 'us vs them' mentality.

Not all Americas feel this way. But that is the message being pushed from the WhiteHouse.  Venus will turn retrograde on March 4th- and stay in retrograde mode until  April 15th..... tax day in AMERICA!  Do you think its odd that tsp doesn't want the people who voted for him to know how much he is worth? We already know he never pays taxes (and is proud of it). But his worth? Um.... questionable.

While Venus is in retro mode we review what LOVE is. We review what brings us love. Sometimes we get involved in ill thought out partnerships- that 'seem' to be 'love' but turn out to be zapping our love, devoid of generosity, and not very caring. What's in it for me partnerships. I suggest that you attempt NEW ways of being loving- during this retrograde period. In fact we will see many a couple/business 'giving it a second chance' during this time frame. We also will see 'calling it quits' behind the scenes- later to be announced.  Some endings will be premature due to immaturity. This is not the time to let go of anything that has tremulous value to you. Give it space. Give yourself space. Learn to be loving to yourself. There are worse things than being alone! This is an excellent time to rework old art pieces...of any kind. Especially working in metal or any of the arts that use- fire...(blown glass, red pigment, torch work, etc).

How do we get back to center when there is a sinkhole there?

You go around it.

And this is what millions of Americans will be doing to keep the meaning of our statue of liberty alive. We will go around giving love, hope, and a welcomed feeling to all those that are being pushed and shoved aside as if they were ants with no purpose.

America's shadow of hate, and fear is not going to grow as long as we throw flashlight, sunlight, and inner divine light on it. It hasn't a chance against LOVE.  So keep the love in your heart flowing. Keep the activities up that give you a sense of belonging to humanity in its entirety and in a holistic way. Go out of your way to be kind to those that are different! Invite those of different faiths into your circle. Support one another by looking out for each other. Do not let anyone be BULLIED or threatened in your presence!

The press is not the enemy, a closed mind is. So read, share articles (fact ck them) support the independent papers as well as mainstream press. They are needed more than ever! When a country's leader attacks the free press, no good comes of it, for anyone! This is one of the steps in dictatorship. HISTORY has shown this time and again.

On March 9th- Mars moves into Taurus.  So how we spend and HOW we SAVE and invest- will be the focus. Look to NDPL to get a big push with help in cutting off investments towards the North Dakota Pipeline. That fight isn't over. Everyone needs clean water! 

Romance also will be in the air...(but remember Venus is retrograde!).... Plant flowers, food, and seeds of goodwill.

Let it be YOU and ME who brings balance back and Justice to the forefront by our everyday actions.

A crisis can be a good thing in the long run. It allows one (and a country) to do a checks and balance and get back to the basics. Do this in your own life. What is your priority? Where is your focus? Stay centered this month in what brings you to the heart- because if you cut off the blood circulation- you surely will die.

So let us LIVE!

Circulate- Celebrate-Come together... Jessie Colon Young sings it well........

Let's come together!

We rolled into the call for waking up with the Chinese New Year.  Not just at dawn, but FOR LIFE!  Time to WAKE UP!  The times call for it, and life is far more interesting with a broad perspective. When you "wake up" you find the ONENESS.  And that oneness is how you manage to keep the smile on your face.

HOW to wake up?  By looking inside, asking the 'why am I here' sort of questions, internal investigation, and divine's grace.

We need to be awake more  than ever. Especially in America.

Mars has just moved into Aries where it is very much at home. Mars is the warrior. Aries energy is straight forward- youthful- and all about ACTION- NOW.  So we are going to see lots of act first, think later energy out there from people who have not learned to harness the discipline element of Mars.  It is especially important to THINK before you act- not just how your actions create change for the now, but also the future. Aries doesn't like to think too much past the moment- but it is very important that you do. So plan out your action- contemplate possible 'reactions' to your action. Don't let your anger RULE you. This is very important- because when we act from passion/anger- we aren't clear headed....and w/o clarity you find foolishness. There is enough of that in the world - don't add to it.

This Mars energy is great for physical action that requires courage.  Metal work. And working out.

By the 3rd of Feb Venus will also be in Aries.  Love at first flame. (and it burns out quickly).

So much fire energy going on in Feb, that you'll need to cool off with deep breathing, good humor, and a bit of luck.

We enter into the ECLIPSE energy - now.  First a lunar one on the 10th, at 23 degree Leo.

I AM QUEEN HEAR ME ROAR....this has just begun. Heads of state will roll.  Leadership is going to change- and the female leaders are certainly going to be playing a chess game. All bets are off on how this flows...except- I will say- the woman's voice is going to get way louder. Statue of Liberty is pretty pissed off right now. Justice will be done, especially because Jupiter will support this eclipse- yet, by the time it comes around- Jupiter will be retrograde (on the 5th Jupiter reverses direction) and so a lot of balancing will be going on behind the scenes. ANY confirmations of a supreme justice for USA highest court will go through the ringer. Delay? You bet.

By the ends month- 26th Feb, we have the second eclipse- at 9 Pisces- conjunct Neptune.... perfect for the Oscars... but otherwise can make fuzzy thinking a major issue-because we just can't seem to get ALL THE FACTS.  Fake news will be an issue. Compassion needs to be front and center in your heart.

The next four weeks are going to be surreal.  Put on your special glasses and learn to breath deep.

And don't sit on your anger- ACT OUT! SPEAK OUT! WORK OUT! SHAKE IT UP BABY!

Don't expect for the political theater to end (in America) the show has just like I said- TIME TO WAKE UP!

0ne with the heart

It's the last blog of 2016!

I am writing this blog from a small village in India.

I've  just  flown clear across the Earth to spend time in mediation- in a temple that opens its gates to all~
no matter what faith, no matter what gender, no matter what race, no matter what country you come from- because we all come from the source, and return to the source at one point on this journey. And the teachings of this- is we are all one. We are all humans on a journey back to the source! In between it- we are either helping others along the way or we aren't. Be the former!

I've made this journey to study in a temple in India, many many times....and each time I return with greater understanding of what it means to be living a truthful and loving life. Its the simple things that build a great life.  Enough Food, Shelter, Health, and LOVE.

As  I sit in temple- while Mars (action) is in Pisces (the sign of the compassionate one) and is moving to hold hands with Neptune (our spiritual life) also in Pisces....I can't help but ponder the banner I see way high- the theme of this just past Christmas program (we celebrate Christmas here too! In a Hindu Temple that welcomes all).... LOVE= LIVING OUR VALUES EVERYDAY.

YES...! That is living in love!  And with Mars and Pisces conjunct Neptune- on the LAST day of the Year- (Dec 31st 2016) it is a perfect message-to take in. AND LIVE in the New Year! Instead of getting drunk on some kind of drink, how about getting drunk on BLISS! HOW? (and no hangover).

Live your truth. Find out what it is. Open your heart and listen to what brings you peace, what brings you joy, what helps you on this cobble road called life, with all its missing stones and turns and curves and sometimes broken steps. LIVE IN LOVE.

Everyone wants to be loved. What we put out there comes back to us ten fold- so live in love.

Uranus just stationed direct - on 29th of Dec.  This movement forward will create some good will as Uranus makes happy with Saturn- (structure) and Jupiter (expanding faith). Uranus has a quirky view - the goal is to be true to your difference song. If we were all the same the world would be a very boring place!  I am here to tell you- splash it up a bit- in your creative life and in your goals- even in how you approach love and faith.

As we reflect on the last 12 months- and oh what a year it has been.....let us ask- not just where we are going and what the future brings- but also - How have I grown in 2016?  What can I take with me into the New Year to make my life smoother? Have I helped to make someone's life easier? Have I lessened the suffering of anyone?

Saturn rules structures and limits. And as this planet does a dance with Uranus- we all have a chance to soften our rules a bit- and allow for some thinking  from the 'other'  person's perspective. This isn't always easy- but it is how we learn to get along.  We don't have to agree- but we can still be polite. Shake it up on a new level...try being friends with those that are stuck in the mud....(Saturn likes to keep things as they are- Uranus is VERY fond of the unexpected) by bringing to the table a new dish. Top it off with some traditional presentation- but make the dish inside fab different! Do the same with your may LOOK the same outside- but change the inside....see what happens! Change the reactions that dictate your life.

Jupiter is staring at Uranus - they are the see-saw right now... and that means luck and relating come by trying something NEW in relationships. Focus on friendship and how humor is a great tool ....laughter and friendship makes the heart smile....a good belly laugh will lift you out of the blues faster than a pill, and not with any side try to watch comedies  and or become one! We all need more smile time while on planet earth.

So- as I close out the last of 12 blogs done in 2016- I am left with the realization that happiness is a choice. The world is always going to have a cycle of up/down, good/bad, having/having not. This is the nature of duality. You can not know the joy of happiness without ever having experience sadness...but YOU CAN choose to make the most of your life by remembering that the love and happiness comes from within your own heart; so have a firm hold on how you love, what your values are, and living them each and everyday!


HAVE a SAFE and LOVE FILLED NEW YEAR'S EVE....and in 2017 all year!
