Many of us are curious about links between natural phenomena.
It’s human nature to read patterns into things. Sometimes we see the existing pattern clearly and sometimes we project our beliefs into everything in our daily lives, believing that what we are objectively seeing is unconnected to us.
We try to see, at least.
Solar Activity and Earthquakes
Sometime before 2012, it became popular to associate earthquakes with solar activity. When sunspots and filaments erupt on the Sun, projecting charged particles into space that interact with Earth’s magnetosphere, the theory suggests they do more than create aurora borealis; they vibrate the planet from the core and produce earthquakes by rattling the tectonic plates. However, I’ve observed solar weather and earthquakes for over a decade here on Earth and have not found a strong correlation.
Once in a while they coincide, by a small percentage of the total of either. Most of the time there are large quakes and no solar flares - or huge solar flares and ordinary quakes - as on any other day when there are no flares to point to.
The physical planets have non-physical bodies just as we do.
I see the Solar System as we see our body and its parts: A whole organism that we see in the physical universe which has a corresponding existence as trans-physical energy in a trans-physical universe. Our five senses are not adequate for the perception of the trans-physical. In any other Universes, not strictly limited to this 3D one, there may be a lot more going on which however we cannot observe by physical means, we can only observe by empirical evidence of how repeated phenomena in the physical universe affect us here on Earth.
Everyone knows what an emotional impact is. It’s not physical but the power it has in our lives over time and space is incredible. An emotional event has the ability to expand or shut down our thinking - everyone knows this by experience. Even though you can’t see the emotional energy that makes the impact, you see and feel it inhabit our being by experience and would never deny it exists.
Many critics of Astrology do not understand the impact of bodies that are not strictly physical but share existence with the physical Universe, overlap it, and it’s this that we intuitively attempt to grasp in consulting an astrological chart.
The physical planets have non-physical bodies just as we do. They impact each other, though we cannot see this take place until there is an event in the physical universe that the energy inhabits. Our physical brain is not equipped to perceive anything outside the physical universe, normally.
It recently happened that the Rover explorer on Mars observed a massive sunspot and flare on the far side of the Sun. We would not see it on Earth; any matter projected from it would head towards Mars, not Earth. And yet, there was a large quake (7.1 USGS) on Earth two days later. I don’t see the two things as directly related, but I would believe that what affects Mars affects us, though a little more removed than when a flare from the Sun directly impacts and affects Earth.
Earthquakes and Astrological Aspects
I decided to look more closely, to see if there is a connection between Astrological influences and earthquakes on planet Earth, in a purely physical way. The dates of major quakes are known, and with a reliable Astrological ephemeris charting the zodiacal position of all the planets daily, I made a list to compare stressful Astrological aspects with the dates of earthquakes.
My search was limited to using the major aspects such as oppositions, squares, quincunxes and semi-sextiles. These are the most potent and antagonistic for holding powerful tensions, the kind that might be earth-shaking. Semi-squares, semiquadrates, septiles and quintiles are other aspects that harbor tensions. These are often considered minor aspects and thus are not in common use, but they are not minor.
For this short article, I am looking only at the aspects listed from the planets, beginning with Mars and heading further out, as those are the planets that bring the pressures that could contribute to a major Earth movement. Mercury and the Moon sometimes provide the spark to release tensions held up in the Earth, releasing the pressure, however the larger outer planets have the potency to set up the stress behind a major earthquake.
I can tell you now without your having to read the whole article that yes, I found a high incidence of major Astrological aspects capable of creating major tension that I believe connects on the days of all the major earthquakes listed in a Google search for major quakes with a potency of 7 and up, over the past couple decades here on Earth. I didn’t do a natal chart for the locations of the quakes, though that might be interesting to do.
There are tectonic plates and fault lines all over the Earth on land and on the ocean floor, all being possible locations for the planet to release pent-up tensions. All the quakes listed here are considered major quakes, 7 and up.
The Planets as Catalysts
The common elements are that almost all quakes occur because of tensions with Pluto, Uranus or Saturn. Most people doing Astrology already know this.
Here is what I noticed:
Iran. 19 September 2017 Moon conjunct Ceres, both square Jupiter and inconjunct Saturn. Jupiter opposition retrograde Uranus, both square Ceres/Moon.
Mexico. 24 August 2016 Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct retrograde Uranus. Mars just passed a conjunction with Jupiter, inflating the pressure as Venus conjuncted Jupiter.
Italy. 16 April 2016 Jupiter retrograde, square Saturn, inconjunct Pluto. Mercury direct inconjunct Saturn in aspect with Jupiter/Pluto.
Ecuador. 26 October 2015 Mars/Jupiter trine Pluto, Mercury square Pluto. Sun square Saturn. Mercury oppostion Uranus.
Afghanistan. 25 April 2015 Mercury conjunct Mars square Jupiter, inconjunct Pluto. Mars Semi sextile Uranus.
Nepal. 3 August 2014 Mars square Jupiter/Mercury. Saturn Inconjunct Uranus, Uranus opposition Chiron.
China. 3 August 2014 Mars square Jupiter/Mercury. Saturn inconjunct Uranus, Uranus opposition Chiron.
Pakistan. 24 September 2013 Saturn sextile Pluto. Uranus square Pluto. Mercury had recently aspected Pluto/Uranus.
Turkey. 23 October 2011 Pluto and Uranus in loose square, long term, just beginning.
Japan. 11 March 2011. Moon, Mars and Mercury in daily transit caught up to and conjunct Uranus in late Pisces. Jupiter in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn makes two sources of major tension.
New Zealand. 22 February 2011 Jupiter semi sextile Mars, Jupiter square Pluto
Chile. 27 February 2010 Saturn square Pluto. Mars retrograde inconjunct Pluto, Moon opposition Pluto.
Haiti. 13 January 2010 Saturn square Pluto.
China. 12 May 2008 While changing signs, Saturn trine Pluto. Saturn inconjunct Mars also changing signs.
Across Southeast Asia. 26 December 2004, Earthquake and tsunami. Pluto conjunct Chiron in Capricorn, opposite Moon in Cancer. Jupiter trine Neptune (support from Venus and Mars squares to Neptune.) Mercury was retrograde and turned direct sextile Neptune/Jupiter. Chiron conjunct Pluto.
Pinatubo volcanic eruption. 30 November 2021. Jupiter semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn. Moon square Pluto. Venus conjunct Pluto. Moon had been opposite retrograde Neptune. Saturn semi sextile Chiron. Mars inconjunct Neptune.
Another note to consider is when Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto make any aspects they can take up to two years to be completely done thus their effects can ripple out over time for many years. During the period of time in which a tense aspect builds up over months, it is then released in a catalytic moment, which may be repeated during the time of the transit. The moment of release of tension usually corresponds to the catalytic planet coming along and bringing it all to a peak where the tension breaks out. If the catalyst is the Moon, the Moon can make a number of different transits within days of each other, but if the tension is already released, the cork is popped, and whatever fizz remains might or might not amount to another jolt of a lesser magnitude.
Taking these dates and checking the natal charts of the places where the quakes occurred would be an interesting study, but it isn’t necessary. These major eruptive dates on Earth correspond to Astrological tensions with the major planets.
Most children who attend Spirit Camp do not know other children when they arrive at our location. It’s important for the work we do to create a container in which our campers feel safe, seen, and heard. When children feel safe, they can share what’s going on in their inner landscape as we discuss their experiences after guided meditations, shamanic journeying, and more.
By spending the first day of Spirit Camp creating our sacred tools, we have ample time for conversations, questions, answers, and getting to know one another. By the end of the day, Spirit Campers have developed friendships and built a camaraderie that will serve them well as we progress from day to day.
One of the first tools we create is a pouch that is used to hold birdseed. The children construct a design for both sides of their pouch and use markers to add color. Some campers choose to add a long ribbon to it so they can hang it around their neck like a necklace. Each time we go outside, children take their pouches with them. As we gather materials from the natural world (acorns, pinecones, etc.) to take back to our classroom for future craft projects, the children sprinkle a pinch of birdseed on the ground as a thank you to Mother Earth for all the wonderful gifts we receive from her.
On the first day of Spirit Camp, we introduce the importance of expressing gratitude for the bounty we receive from nature. That practice continues throughout the week, so by the end of the week, Spirit Campers have scattered birdseed over much of the property.
Birds love Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp, too!

Do you find yourself seeking deeper insights into the hidden dimensions of personality and life purpose? Beneath the surface of a simple deck of cards lies a world of wisdom and insight waiting to be revealed.
Developed and created by Elizabeth Clinton, 52 Helpers is a unique system of Cardology that goes well beyond the surface-level interpretation of a regular deck of playing cards. It delves into the metaphysical aspects, unveiling profound insights about an individual's potential character traits, life path and future events. It merges the principles of Cardology, Numerology, Astrology and both ancient and modern wisdom, to offer a comprehensive guide to understanding (and making the most of) one's spiritual journey here in the 21st Century.
There is an ancient Book of Life hidden in plain sight - the classic deck of 52 playing cards
Did you ever notice that there are 52 cards in a deck and 52 weeks in a year?
There are 13 cards in a suit and 13 weeks in each season; four suits times 13 cards in a suit equals 52. (Age 52 is a significant age milestone, click here.)
There are four suits — hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds — and four seasons.
Each suit also represents an aspect of the human experience. Hearts symbolize the emotional and intuitive realms, Clubs embody the intellectual and communicative aspects, Diamonds represent the material and practical aspects, and Spades delve into the spiritual and transformative dimensions.
Meanwhile, the 13 cards in each suit represent the 13 phases of the lunar cycle (the 13 weeks in each season).
Two colors – positive and negative; male and female.
So, what we’ve actually got in a deck of playing cards is a little Book of symbols that represents the seasons and the cycles of our planet and our lives… a Book of our Life here on Earth, a blueprint.
52 Helpers is an updated masterful form of the ancient art of Cardology, which many say hails from the time of Atlantis. Today its origins can be traced way back to ancient Egypt and China; archeological discoveries show how playing cards were understood to possess spiritual and mystical significance. And remember, books didn’t have bindings back then. Written on clay tablets and then on individual pieces of parchment, cards were still called “books.”
Over the centuries, the system evolved and spread through Europe, reaching its pinnacle during the Renaissance when both scholars and philosophers embraced the idea of using playing cards as a tool for divination and self-discovery.
Skipping forward to recent times, several years ago Elizabeth Clinton “happened” to come across an original copy of a huge book written in 1947 by Randall and Campbell, called “Sacred Symbols of the Ancients”. The discovery of this book - and the profound wisdom it contained - launched Elizabeth into a wholehearted in-depth study of Cardology. Through testing, application, and by integrating this fascinating technology with modern-day metaphysical understanding and concepts, Elizabeth developed a remarkable system which she calls 52 Helpers. And now, after serving and supporting many, many clients with 52 Helpers readings through the years, Elizabeth teaches and certifies others.
The 52-card deck of regular playing cards holds deep metaphysical symbolism
Each suit represents different aspects of existence. Hearts symbolize the emotional and intuitive realms, Clubs embody the intellectual and communicative aspects, Diamonds represent the material and practical aspects, and Spades delve into the spiritual and transformative dimensions. Through the combination of these suits, 52 Helpers practitioners can unravel the metaphysical tapestry woven within the cards.
The system also takes into account the numerological significance of each card, which adds another layer of depth to the analysis. Each card carries its own metaphysical energy and meaning, intertwining with the numerical vibrations represented. The interpretation of these cards not only provides valuable insights into an individual's personality strengths and challenges but also unveils hidden patterns and potential future events from a metaphysical perspective.
52 Helpers - the Fundamentals
The first step in determining your 52 Helpers profile is to calculate the Birth Card based on your date of birth. The Birth Card acts as a gateway to uncovering your core personality traits and spiritual purpose in this lifetime. For instance, if your date of birth is August 15th, your Birth Card would be the Five of Hearts, indicating that you possess a compassionate and nurturing nature, and your spiritual journey involves cultivating emotional connections and fostering love in the world.
A full 52 Helpers card reading includes astrological influences too, for example, your Mercury card is “how you think”, your Venus card is “how you love”… and so forth through the signs. Karma cards are included, too. These readings can empower individuals to make informed decisions and live a more fulfilling life.
Applying still more advanced techniques, 52 Helpers methods extend beyond just personality analysis. It offers metaphysical guidance to navigate life's challenges and make important decisions aligned with your higher self. Through various card spreads and readings, 52 Helpers practitioners can provide insights into career paths, relationships, health matters and spiritual growth, empowering individuals to embrace their spiritual essence and consciously create their reality.
(Once the 52 Helpers Fundamentals are mastered, Elizabeth Clinton offers to enrich and polish the practitioner’s skills with advanced level training to become certified as a professional “52 Helpers Counselor” too.)
52 Helpers can be described as a gateway to uncovering the metaphysical mysteries that lie within.
The beauty of 52 Helpers lies in its ability to empower individuals to take charge of their own lives and make choices aligned with their true selves.
For a deeper understanding of one's strengths, challenges and potential avenues for growth, 52 Helpers offers an excellent source of captivating, insightful and enlightening understanding of ourselves and others from a metaphysical, yet practical, perspective.
To sum up: With 52 Helpers technology, a simple deck of playing cards can reveal our Soul’s blueprint or life journey. And when we know this blueprint, it’s like having a User’s Guide for enduring success and happiness in life.
Elizabeth now offers LIVE online training and certification in 52 Helpers Fundamentals, and 52 Helpers Counselor programs. And periodically she presents a free and fun Happy Hour, an open house event on Zoom, where you can experience how 52 Helpers works, how it is helpful, what it’s all about, and most importantly: Your birth card.

"Wouldn't it be nice," joked a famous TV psychologist, "if we could just give our clients a new childhood! It would solve most of their problems!"
Psychologists have known for a century of the enormous power of childhood experiences to affect our lives. Childhood trauma and neglect leave deeply harmful imprints on the subconscious mind, leading to years of feeling inadequate, depressed, anxious, lonely and/or a menagerie of addictions and health problems.
Effective and profoundly transformational, the 6-day experiential Alchemical workshop called Healing the Source of Emotional Pain – with Emotional Clearing has been taught to thousands of professional therapists for over 40 years.
(See a review by a psychotherapist who did this training at this link.)
And I have helped countless clients with these techniques in my private practice, too.
NOW we open this same quality training to anyone who is ready to transform their OWN life!
Healing the trauma!
Awakening the phoenix!
Are you ready to begin a new life right NOW? A life in which your needs for love and support are finally met?
Here's what to expect during each of the 6 days in this workshop, with comments from students and participants before you, sharing their experiences at each step of the way.
Day 1: Establishing the cauldron, the group is bonded in their common struggle
... the common pilgrimage for love... and common support for each other and the child within. And we open the doors to the spirit world and its helpers.
"I'm not a therapist. I just need to drop this weight ... and these painful feelings. But I'm so glad there's a crowd of loving therapists and counselors here with us! And we are all working and helping each other. "
"I just now finally connected with my deceased grandpa. I finally find out why he had to leave. He has missed me for years. He never blamed me. I'm so glad he is back here! And in my life!"
"I just told my inner child: "Now that I have found you, little Joey, we're going to get you the new loving inner family and childhood you deserve!" ❤️
Day 2: Understanding the truth of what happened in the past, including the consequences you faced. We rescue the inner child. We repair the damage.
"Now I see how everything I went through created my years of struggle. I don't need to be ashamed. I'm not wrong. I just needed a real family."
"I couldn't stop crying while my classmate Brenda rescued her inner child from that terrible scene. It was scary, but she emerged from the session looking so radiant! Looks like that monster will not be touching little Brenda again!"
"Adam's voice was so powerful in that rescue mission. He was helping me like the father I always wanted! Thank you!
Day 3: Building a new inner family. When to keep a parent, or rehabilitate, or resurrect, or replace a parent? And the processes. Linking the strength and healing of these new inner parental resources to all of the problem areas in your life.
"My father died from smoking! And I smoked to be close to him. Now I know how he's going to help me quit. He’s going to be right there to help with every craving!"
"I've decided to keep my mom ... she tried so hard. And as my "angel mother” she assures me she will never make those mistakes or face those struggles again! It feels so good to know I can have her help, her hand in mine, meeting new people. Already my confidence is improving! "
"It felt so satisfying calling on my new inner dad to set my birth father straight! I always wanted a dad like him. And I never thought my birth father would ever apologize. But he did! And he told me he wanted someday to be my real father again. But ... my new inner dad says: "Not yet."
Day 4: Find the new inner Home and its amazing gifts. Discover the inner mate - the inner beloved - and the guide to romance and love.
"While sharing pictures of our inner family home and sanctuary, I found a mandolin in the studio. My inner mother says she will teach me. I wonder, can she teach me guitar, too?"
"My inner mate’s name is Red Arrow. He’s the handsome Lakota warrior from my dreams. He says he has waited a hundred years. Well, now that wait is over for both of us!
"My inner mate just gave me the clues to how I can make my marriage to Linda work! And she is going to whisper in my ear and tap me on the shoulder when I need a reminder.
Day 5: The re-wombing and re-birthing process to rebuild our bodies in the Womb of our divine inner mother.
"Having gone through the re-wombing process with my new inner mother I feel utterly relaxed in my body in a way I've never known."
"I'm putting together a whole inner family for myself. With the help of dear new friends in this course!"
"My whole body feels different! But best of all, if I ever lose this amazing feeling, I know exactly where to go inside myself, on my own, for support and help.
Day 6: More Techniques. Specifics for common issues.
Trance induction and other methods to facilitate the work for self and others.
Understanding resistance and how to work with it.
Discovering and working with symbolic images. We journey into a dream together and use it to gain insight and healing.
Methods for freeing up emotions and working effectively with rage, grief, numbness, despair and a host of other reactions.
Specific instructions regarding sexual abuse. The best approaches to using these methods for addictions and disease.
A closing circle in which we affirm our dedication to the new lives we are creating for ourselves.
“I discovered for myself that Emotional Clearing techniques go deeper than other therapies because in class you not only uncover the underlying causes, you transform them. I witnessed all the students at the training experiencing a profound personal experience of transformation and healing. It was my privilege and pleasure to participate.”
“This course empowered me to heal the past and connect with my own inner wisdom, spiritual resources and my own true Self. I am so grateful!”

As Summer 2023 begins, Venus is moving through Leo which is a great place for Venus to show off it's best for its own sake, feeling good about itself without much care for what's in good or bad taste. This is the place and time for dressing up or down, to parade whatever self-image one wants to indulge in.
A stretched-out version of a Venus Mars flirtation
Venus will spend a lot of time in this sign because it turns retrograde before catching up to Mars, which is also in Leo. Normally Venus would catch up (conjunct) and pass Mars because being closer to the Sun it moves faster around the zodiac. But not this time or place, not yet. Chasing Mars, Venus doesn't quite make the rendezvous before turning retrograde, although from July 7 to Aug 7 they come into a loose conjunction around 22 degrees of Leo. Anyone with a natal planet or asteroid in this area or in aspect to these degrees will feel the growing but never consummated union of Venus and Mars during this time. There's a large part of the planet's population with Pluto near this degree of Leo and in this spirit the Venus Mars dance will affect a great many people at the same time.
On their own the Venus Mars passage here by itself should be a nice period for summer fun. As a generational effect - where Venus Mars passes over millions of people's natal Pluto – there could be an obsessive (Pluto) infatuation with a rising social or political star. This isn't necessarily good or bad by itself, it's a phenomenon of the several months moment.
Without getting into the unknown positions of individual charts in aspect to the Venus/Mars chemistry, what happens between these two planets is playful here in Leo. This style is appealing but it doesn't have anything to do with whether the object of desire is a healthy choice. Attraction is its own infection sometimes; it doesn't need a reason.
The courtship endures until February 2024
Venus and Mars won't actually consummate their conjunction until late February of next year, for about a week around Valentines Day. This is a long courtship to some. In the long-playing version of Venus Mars chemistry, from the summer of '23 to Valentines Day '24, there are benefits fertilized in this stretched out period that wouldn't normally have time to develop. Venus the faster moving planet normally buzzes up to, conjuncts and passes Mars in two to three weeks. As I've mentioned before, anytime a planet is slowed down by retrograde motion it gains in potency and Venus will slow down and retreat away from Mars. Their chemistry remains hanging until the retrograde planet turns direct and gets back or passes the point at which it was about to make a statement.
The chemistry of Venus Mars in the summer of '23 may start and end this summer for some, but for anyone patient enough or forced by circumstances to taking their time, the often romantic chemistry between these two could continue to slowly ripen for when Venus finally catches Mars, in Virgo. In Virgo both planets are tempered by what happens when the first date is postponed and then finally happens. Valentines Day may be an arbitrary holiday but it's part of the popular culture, something real in the psyche, and the timing here is itself fun to speculate about.
Another thing to be aware of is that Venus isn't just a goddess of Love
If you remember some of the love goddesses of myth, some of them are also great warriors and archers, characterizing multiple faces of beauty or love. Mother goddess love, young goddess love, the love of beauty one sees, feels, and to be inspirational with invisible qualities of beauty. Everyone needs to be nourished with the hope of this chemistry now and then. When combined with Mars, Venus could even be in love with war if other planetary influences support that, the sometimes temperament of Mars.
Adding to everything I've mentioned thus far, the asteroid Lilith is also in Leo this summer, and both Venus and Mars will mix and mingle their energies with Lilith. Lilith is sometimes called the Black Moon, implying a darker character. Because she is said to be the first wife or consort of Adam, she was given a negative connotation as the "other woman" in the Biblical tale which inspires some people to assume that Lilith is dark and evil. Mythic tales are metaphors used by the psyche and from my perspective religion is myth too, used by the psyche. I don't expect religious tales to be any more or less valid than mythic tales.
So how does Lilith impact this summer chemistry between Venus and Mars? Lilith coming into the mix adds depth. Sometimes adding pain makes love plunge deeper into the soul. The idea of a rival whether it be a man or a woman is a complicated well known extra ingredient in a relationship that can be painful or make a struggle to consummate one's desire even more potent.
If one can sail these stormy seas, there's a constructive juncture ahead when Venus does finally catch up to Mars because it happens in Virgo, around Valentines Day 2024. There's something about meeting finally in Virgo that compels maturity and pragmatism. Leo is out for display and applause. Virgo brings a narrower focus on what actually works and how to pay for it. If Mars and Venus were to finally rendezvous in Aries for example, they would be mapping out a great vacation together and then going their separate ways.
Lilith is present at the outset of the summer when Venus begins to approach Mars. Her influence is there at the beginning of the Venus Mars flirtation but it doesn't last, it's just a test. Lilith heightens the power of initial attraction and stirs the crossing over of some taboos, breaks us out of our boundaries. Venus and Mars move on from this initial excitement and wind up finally meeting in Virgo where things get more real. Imagine if they wound up in Libra, there wouldn't be a meeting of the minds except to plan a party with lots of fine wine, eating rich food, and extravagant fashion. In Virgo they meet and see if there is a way forward in the future. Virgo asks what's of value, what is the value, and what's the cost or in more mythic terms, what is the sacrifice that is to be made?
The sacrifice in some way involves the ego, to surrender some measure of it in order to cross a threshold
Not that one can't have a party, because the next sign both Venus and Mars move into is Libra, however while in Virgo the adults in the room want to know who's paying and how much? The party is coming later.
From Aries to Virgo, the first six signs, there's an evolution of Self from total self-absorption as children are, to the maturation of Self in Virgo. Some part of Self has to be sacrificed to join with the universe, to join with another, to grow beyond oneself. In Virgo this can happen for real.
Symbolically in the northern hemisphere Virgo is the end of Summer, the beginning of the fall and what must eventually come to complete it - the harvest. Whatever has been developed over the sunny signs reaches its apex in Leo and begins a slow decline into the fall season when the Sun grows less a visible factor in the 24-hour daily cycle. Libra the Scales, the balance of Self and Others, the only sign not an animal or fish, is the opposite of Aries and the beginning of Self surrendering the idea of total uniqueness and realizing the benefits of being part of a whole. But only after the sacrifice of Self in Virgo is made, to surrender some of the ego.
Ultimately, following the 12 signs around, the evolutionary destiny of the soul arrives in Pisces, home sign of the Psyche, which is the Greek word for Spirit. In Spirit we are more a nebulous part of the Great Sea. Once one returns to the Great Sea the Spirit does it all again, beginning with Aries and the emphasis on Self. Planets and asteroids are all over the zodiac. One can't find a chart with all the planets and asteroids in Aries and moving sign by sign. Describing the signs in this kind of sequence is merely to illustrate a point about their distinct characters as planets move through and make aspects or relationships one to the other.
Having said all that…
While this is going on Venus, Mars and Lilith all move in and out of aspects with other planets that affect their expression in this dance, until they finally meet around Valentine's Day 2024. There are significant interactions with Jupiter in Taurus where it's playing a game of catching up to Uranus. Because both planets move into retrograde motion, they don't actually make their very significant conjunction in Taurus until April of 2024. That's a subject for another day. From Taurus though, as Venus and Mars move more quickly through Leo, they make a stressful 90-degree relationship aspect to where Jupiter and Uranus are. Jupiter will inflate the excesses of whatever is going on, and Uranus could turn out to be someone completely unexpected. And that's why the stretched-out version of Venus and Mars flirtation isn't necessarily bad, giving us time to figure it out.

The powerful Alchemical Tarot method invites us uncover practical solutions using one of the 4 Tarot spreads demonstrated in this workshop, and to communicate in trance with the characters and symbols on the Tarot cards to uncover their hidden meaning.
Here’s one example of how the Alchemical Tarot methods can be integrated with a client: As you help your client to enter each card in an alert trance state, they ‘become’ the important figure for that card and you help them discover the unique meaning of this card for them. The practitioner then places the client’s felt sense of the card into the context of the client's question and the position of the card in the Tarot spread to determine the actual meaning of the card, a meaning that is customized or unique to this client.
Personally experience how this is done at this workshop.

Harnessing the power of dreams to tap into inner strength and transform lives.
With David Quigley, creator of Alchemical Hypnotherapy
Alchemical Dreamwork is a powerful and transformative technique that has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its ability to help individuals dive deep into their subconscious mind and access valuable insights.
By utilizing the art of dream analysis and hypnotherapy, this unique practice allows individuals to explore their dreams and unlock a deeper understanding of themselves.
The Origins of Alchemical Dreamwork
Jungian Analysis and Alchemy: The roots of Alchemical Dreamwork can be traced back to the pioneering work of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, who recognized the profound connection between the ancient practice of alchemy and the human psyche. Jung believed that dreams, like alchemical processes, hold the key to our inner transformation and self-realization. Through active imagination and engaging with the archetypes within our dreams, we can unlock the secrets of our subconscious and achieve personal growth.
David Quigley and Alchemical Hypnotherapy: Building on Jung's insights, David Quigley developed a unique approach to dreamwork that combines the principles of alchemy with the techniques of modern hypnosis. This powerful method invites us to enter our dreams directly through hypnosis, allowing us to communicate with the characters and symbols within our dreams and uncover their hidden meaning.
How Does Alchemical Dreamwork Differ from Traditional Dream Analysis?
Traditional dream analysis often relies on the therapist's personal theories and the client's analytical interpretations to decipher the meaning of a dream. In contrast, Alchemical Dreamwork uses specific hypnotic induction methods to guide the client into a deep trance state where they can directly interact with the dream's characters and situations. This experiential approach allows for a more accurate and meaningful understanding of the dream's messages and can lead to profound personal transformation.
The Alchemical Dreamwork Process
Step 1 - Entering the Dream: The first step in alchemical dreamwork is to enter the dream state through a deep but alert trance. Using a specific induction method, the hypnotherapist guides the client into a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness, allowing them to access their subconscious mind and re-enter the dream world.
Step 2 - Exploring the Dream: Once inside the dream, the client is encouraged to explore their surroundings and interact with the characters and symbols they encounter. By engaging with these elements directly, the client can gain insights into the dream's meaning through feelings, words and images.
Step 3 - Communicating with Dream Characters: A key feature of Alchemical Dreamwork is the practice of communicating with the entities or characters found within the dream. By dialoguing with these figures, the client can uncover the underlying issues and challenges that the dream is attempting to communicate.
Step 4 - Uncovering the Dream's Meaning: As the client interacts with the dream characters, they may discover connections to their current life situations or even past traumas. By examining these links, the practitioner can help the client uncover the true meaning of the dream and identify the mental or emotional challenges that need to be addressed.
Step 5: Transformative Hypnotic Techniques: Once the dream's meaning has been revealed, the hypnotherapy practitioner can apply a range of proven hypnotic techniques to help the client process and integrate the insights gained from the dreamwork. These techniques may include guided visualization, inner child work, or the use of positive affirmations, depending on the specific needs of the client.

There are many things in the public consciousness right now that concern us all. Probably close to or at the top is whether the US will default on its debt as June approaches. The circumstances are all in place for it to go either way in the political sphere and in the astrological sphere. But I think there are sufficient astrological circumstances to argue against there being a problem that politicians can’t resolve or at least avoid creating a crisis over the national debt now. The minimum we usually have grown to accept is that they postpone doing anything radical to a later date.
The political voices on the right are trying to use pressure over the possible default to extract concessions in the budget, a separate matter. Their problem is equating apples with oranges; paying the nation’s past due bills is not the same as arguing over future spending. This last point seems too rational to doubt, but being rational is not what it takes to win in politics.
The game is played differently by either side, by two different sets of rules, and because they are different the conversation strains to work its way to a resolution. The only thing that compels them towards avoiding a crisis is the looming upcoming election season: self-interest. This sounds like a criticism, but self-interest to be honest is a shared trait. If only we could expand our definition of self to include others with whom we interdependently exist.
However, all that aside, astrological influences are the patterns we unconsciously follow from our psyche; the national psyche as well as the personal psyche. We can’t help but to navigate along their paths in front of us. They are strongly reinforced by the behavior and choices of everyone else in the world and we don’t individually run the place, life is a shared experience with shared influences good and bad.
Pluto in Aquarius
Pluto famously finally left Capricorn in March, barely getting a toe in Aquarius. It’s been hovering at zero degrees and some minutes of that sign and now sits almost stationary as it prepares to retrograde back into Capricorn to complete all the things it stirred up while there over the past two decades. Pluto in Capricorn worked through big government, corporate power, religious power, powerful autocrats and self-declared influencers. Pluto in Aquarius is going to be very different; it will work with collectives.
A shift from centralized power to shared power more specific to where it is needed.
Over the coming years Pluto in Aquarius in my opinion will see the end of self-styled pyramid structured power and the construction of many voices where there had been one or a few. The negative is a possible lack of coordination and a need to innovate to make things happen better, and the positive is a variety of structures that are not all the same tailored to the regions in which they form. One size does not fit all.
This won’t happen because people want to share power; that goes against the nature of most of those who have power now. It comes about from the inefficiency and old world plodding of power brokers disconnected from the people they had power over. Aquarian air sign innovation is going to revolutionize without having a war, but it will come under the force of Pluto which is to say we hardly have a choice. We have to evolve or get wiped out. This might sound exciting to some, but it’s terrifying to those who prefer to live in a world where they are told what to do and things seldom change.
Circumstances will force us to adapt within the next two years as Pluto fully enters Aquarius. Some of the standby support systems in a crisis, for example FEMA, won’t be able to get where the problem is and local authorities will have to take matters into their own hands. On a social playing field, State governments are going the way of carving out their educational systems and many other social norms by legislative mandate different from existing Federal or national standards. The result will eventually be people will gravitate to live in States or Countries where the society is shaped more as they want their environment to be. This kind of shift will happen all over the world for better and for worse. Pluto has two decades to see how this works, or doesn’t work and needs refinement.
With that in mind, it might fit to entertain the idea that the US is about to have an economic crisis over its budget. The breakdown of the power structure by crippling the economic power of the national ID. As I said though, Pluto has two decades to work on this. I don’t think this will happen now. There are many people in a position to express this Pluto designed breakdown within the existing structure of power. They are willing to go over the cliff for the buzz of the free fall without worrying over the landing as if, like Wiley Coyote, they can dust themselves off and try again. I can see the US economic influence on world economies being forced to endure a change through crisis, but I don’t think it will at this time.
Saturn brings some stark realities
Saturn entered Pisces in March as Pluto barely and briefly entered Aquarius. Saturn will stay in Pisces, a sobering influence. Saturn brings some stark realities to where Neptune and recently Jupiter have been. Saturn definitely tends to take the rose-colored glasses off and asks for responsible address to problems which are in need of being exposed. It’s the moment in an individual’s life when they realize, "Damn, this doesn’t work, I do need to see a therapist."
In the times prior to Saturn entering Aquarius, any preparations or advancements that could have been made to prepare for what the psyche knew was coming (Saturn in Pisces) pay dividends for those who meet their professional standards or even exceeded them. But for those who got side tracked or lazy, Saturn in Pisces is indeed when it’s time to go through the mess and attempt to sort it out. This is good for facing up to budgetary obligations on both sides, being realistic about having them or reducing them, and being realistic about meeting them. Saturn in Pisces isn’t about the fantasies, it’s about what is possible to do.
New Start with the New Moon on May 19th
The main reason why I think the US will pay its bills and end up in tough budget negotiations is because Jupiter enters Taurus mid-May AND Saturn is in Pisces. Might as well toss in Venus enters Cancer too, another attractive reason in the US chart as well as a general influence for everyone to feel optimistic and positive that we aren’t going off the cliff, not yet anyway. Taurus resonates with the Second house of material values, appreciation of the home as a nurturing healthy place. It generally favors financial affairs though one can be carried away with it, borrow to buy today and promise to pay on Tuesday but have trouble doing so later. Agreements can be made with Jupiter flying in to save us, though we have to count on Saturn to temper them with what’s really possible. Jupiter in transit now is going to sextile Saturn; they can work together now. Jupiter is going to be sextile transiting Venus as it enters Cancer, and this all feels pretty reassuring. A good group on the New Moon coming May 19th. A new start.
In the US chart, Jupiter is moving into the 5th House. This is a very positive placement for now. Jupiter inflates the intentions of heading in a celebratory direction, not a wake. It can be a little divorced from reality here in the US, which wouldn’t be out of character, and especially with Venus moving into Cancer which in the US chart is a seventh house rendezvous with natal Venus, Jupiter and the Sun. The New Moon on May 19th which follows two powerful eclipses in the prior month is trine (positively aspected) to transiting Pluto.
All these conditions are temporary though, so the good feeling which can come from this period won’t last forever. For real, Pluto will back into Capricorn in June to finish up its business and be done with Capricorn in November by 2024. As with all the court cases hanging over Trump, the autocrats in the world will all face the firing squad of changing times. Big centralized power is going to either evolve into something more power-sharing or go away. For those who gravitate to big daddy government, I am sorry. We will need each other more, to work together under pressure. Something more resembling a socialist form of government is coming though not by choice, but because groups of people organize differently, regionally and locally, by necessity.
Pluto forces us by changing the environment, literally.
Some people say Pluto is not even a planet, it’s a large asteroid. A planetoid. That’s fine, asteroids are significant. It isn’t about the physical size. In the psyche there is no physical, so physical size only has a value as a symbol of expression in the physical universe. As a major organ if you will of the psyche-body, Pluto is huge, bigger than Jupiter. We should measure the size of a planet and its influence by how slow it moves and Pluto is the slowest, excepting Planet Nine. When planets go stationary and then retrograde, they move at their slowest and therefore are at their most potent. As slow as it is all the time, Pluto is stationary and soon will retrograde back into Capricorn. In the next 18 months it will wrap up its two decades of work in Capricorn.

Our children are our future – a future that we all want to be replenished with the best possible upbringing, filled with fulfilling happiness, starred with success, secured with safe belongings and replete with awareness about oneself and the surroundings.
However, somehow as parents and adults we may unfairly manage to obscure our ‘future’ by ignoring the present condition of our children, in terms of how healthy their mental state is, how stable their feelings are and how balanced their emotions are.
When these needs are ignored, our ‘wants’ remain as ‘hopeful wishes’ and we find it very difficult to stand at the bridge that lies between expectation and reality.
On one side of the bridge, we could see how much effort has been put from our end in terms of using proper parenting techniques, providing the right support while growing up, listening to the tantrums of the kids, and dealing with them in a sensible manner. As parents, we always tend to study this side of the bridge from the lens of evaluation.
The truth however is that evaluation is a highly negative way to look at our children, because in this assessment we weigh our effort against their improvement, our care against their obedience, our love against their affection, and our guidance against the results.
More often than not, due to this hardened approach, we find a glaring gap between our expectations and the results. That can lead to unnecessary annoyance, irritation, disagreements, and ultimately serious disobedience from the child’s side. Our beloved children, with their young and malleable minds, will after a point of time become completely immune and irresponsive to our evaluation-based parenting. They simply think that we are incapable of understanding them and as a result, oftentimes from a very young age, they become reserved with us and much more open to their friends. So, on the child’s side of the bridge there lies grave disappointment.
Now as parents, we realize what we actually go through – our hectic routine consists of attending to jobs, maintaining social relationships, shouldering responsibilities, meeting deadlines, and committing to some specific duties. In the midst of all this jostling and juggling, it’s really challenging to put complete focus on our children.
As a consequence, the nourishment factor from our parenting goes missing and we begin to depend solely on academic progress reports to judge where our children are heading. Again, this is a terrible way to judge a young life with tremendous potential. We cannot evaluate life against lifeless numbers and figures.
The fundamental thing to notice in this scenario is that, although we all were children at some point in our lives, nowadays our children are in an age where fairy tales, dragons and superheroes are holding the reigns of the world, thus we cannot teach them how to behave, how to act, how to focus, how to study and how to thrive, using analogies from the world of grown-ups. It’s like mixing oil and water together which results in a terribly dissolved and disjointed solution.
As parents, if we expect the same level of maturity, sensibility, and understanding from our kids, we are simply living in la la land. The irony is, this inability to comprehend is the root cause of all our failures.
We cannot blame our children for this because as infants and toddlers, they completely depend on us. Therefore, the responsibility of providing a safe and sound environment where the overall consciousness of your child is thriving rests solely on our shoulders.
“When I am finding so much difficulty in attending to my kids’ needs and requirements, how will I be able to take care of their mental health, listen to their day-to-day ordeals, and deal with everything in such a time crunch?”
The Solution is…
The best and easiest illustration to grasp Uranus is the Tower card in the Major Arcana of a deck of Tarot cards. Saturn is often depicted in a somber Grim Reaper Father Time illustration. They are both upsetting however both provide vital parts of evolving consciousness, evicting us from comfortable but retarding ruts, demanding we be responsible, inviting us to break out and try new ideas, acting out crazy bad ideas and paying a price for them.
In the mix of these two different patterns established life structures are often stripped down, new ones built, with accompanying periods of frustration pulling in all directions as processes work their way through to us seeing more clearly the follies on one side and refining our goals on the other.
Altogether Saturn, Uranus and Pluto completions this year into next conclude some themes and begin to move us into new chapters. They reveal and release hidden information and insight into the events that turned up during transiting aspects during these recent years.
Meanwhile things continue to move forward. Time waits for no one.
No ordinary election
A change in character emphasis begins in March
Pluto changes signs by direct then retrograde and direct motion in over two years, a huge shift for all of us. Many of the themes for its time in Capricorn don't come to an end as much as get less attention, while other areas of life gain more. As new concerns come into view, we relegate many former priorities to the back burner. The major planets bring into our lives from remote areas of our consciousness things we must deal with and might have been too distracted to manage or prepare for.
Thus, the shift of focus often arrives like an uninvited guest. We might greet that guest with joy or a long face, we might be grateful to be catapulted out of a rut. Or we might dread facing more problems to address. We can usually count on Pluto to drag the junk out of the basement that we ignored, stuffed away to deal with at a later date. That time has come. Moving into Aquarius the emphasis will appear to many as problems humanity can solve with technology. Problems with technology. Maybe for a while, technology that doesn't work. Can't work. The planet discovered at the time humanity brought forth the atomic age, Pluto, will be upgraded while in Aquarius but maybe because it doesn't work and has to be rebuilt.
Why doesn't it work? Temporarily, there can be many reasons for this. I won't speculate here now but I am expecting a reboot of the atomic age. It probably starts out from a mess, dysfunctionally crippled because of humanity, but sometime down the road humanity arrives at something better, like fission reactors instead of fusion.
This all plays out in the coming few years.

We are in a unique period where there is a Pluto return at the same time as a Neptune opposition to its natal position in the US chart. The Pluto return is opposite natal Mercury along the 2nd and 8th house axis. This clearly indicates a period of a couple years of major economic/financial challenges filtered through 9th house idealism. The most tangible manifestation of this is how supporting Ukraine’s resistance to Russian aggression is inflating the cost of living. That the causes are far away in another country is perfectly in keeping with the US 9th house position of Neptune. We remain in this moment into 2024. Are Americans willing to pay at the pump and more for everything else to help push back totalitarians in eastern Europe? This theme isn’t unique to the US but easy to see how this transit by Neptune is substantial in the US economy and therefore elsewhere. It doesn’t seem likely that western allies are going to back off this commitment however in America there are sympathetic voices to Vladimir Putin.
There’s also the darker side of Pluto in this. Being that Pluto’s return to its natal placement in the US chart is 2nd and 8th house, the 8th house hearkens back to investments made in the past and how well they serve us in the present. Investments of all kinds, not strictly financial investments. Diplomatic investments. Research investments. Emotional investments in our families and jobs.
Oil is something from the past, serving in the present. Oil is also involved in the powers that dominate corporate America (Pluto in Capricorn), and Russia. These powers could ease the pain of inflation, however instead are reaping huge profits and not spending towards creating a more stable market in which prices for other goods could ease. This pressure will be undone as Pluto departs the return and departs Capricorn for Aquarius within the next two years. It will ultimately be up to the American voters to decide what their values are in the 2024 election after which these giant aspects diminish. They will vote based on their values to complete the transit of Neptune opposing the US natal Neptune.
The purpose of Pluto stirring up corporate conspiracies and exposing corruption in governments isn’t to make them become virtuous. Their purpose is to provide on an individual level the opportunity to examine and then act on what we believe in, to provide us and our electorate the opportunity to manifest their beliefs. Pluto can set up and expose corruption; it can create then undermine it.
The individual and national or collective will to establish values and then act on them is why we need to go through these stressful events. We have to prove what we say. The need to revisit and examine values is work that is never done. Since Pluto for example will move on into Aquarius doesn’t mean it leaves the government or political leaders it exposed as corrupt or corporations cheating, all neat and tidy, all repaired. It just means that the recent cycles of transits - which span decades and generations - are complete, and the next round of rebuilding will in time come due for another generation. We will do it all again probably, for other souls who need to face the same kind of decisions. This is a major overhaul questioning the founding principles of the US; it’s the first Pluto return in its history. Finding out that some things don’t work means we have to rewrite the rules. We definitely learned in the last five years that there are those who will operate outside the old established rules because they were not encoded law. But we probably need to face a crisis of dysfunction before some people will believe it.
In the 9th house is the possibility of noble well-informed intent with a religious sense of purpose, just as there is the possibility that these values are a load of croc. The problem in the 9th house is because we consider the belief to be sacred, we resist it ever evolving.
The burst of energy represented by the birth chart of the USA continues to be the chart of the lives being lived on this land at the moment, but it’s a very different set of circumstances. There is unfortunately a tremendous amount of tragic karma yet to be resolved that this country was built on. One of the things that helps to do that is recognition of the common interests of everyone living in it now to fulfill a shared variously defined idealism we agree to, and one of the realities of that is an economy that offers opportunities for its participants.
It’s a question of belief, not necessarily of reality.
Neptune thinks everything is real, it doesn’t separate fact from fiction. We have to sort it out and integrate what works down here on Earth because Neptune is far sighted and can’t see things individually up close isolated from each other. The expanse of Neptune’s perception is other worldly. It’s a valuable perspective to retain because we realize how silly some of our close-up obsessions are. But we live here on Earth to iron out some of the details, not spread ourselves thin across the seas of Neptune.
Neptune in transit opposing it’s US natal placement says hold on a minute, are we the majority in agreement of what we believe our valued goal to be? This is a period of confusion because not everyone agrees on what national value or ideals are, or what is fact or fiction. People don’t recognize how Neptune works or works in their lives because it is subtle, its impact seems vague. Neptune accepts everything one believes as fact, which is why people don’t recognize Neptune. It’s too obvious. Belief defines Neptune’s reality and we act on whatever it is.
The opposition from transiting Neptune in Pisces most of all dissolves the definitions of what is a valid belief or not valid. Belief was never fact; it was always a guess highly dependent on wishful thinking.
If we recognize that Neptune is a formless watery ocean that takes on whatever shape we pour it into, we also have to recognize that what we believe is going to look different depending on who’s looking at it. In that case we had better develop a common understanding of what we are looking at. Go from there. Up to now we had written and unwritten laws about what was a common national goal and standards of ethical behavior. But Neptune says, wait a minute, what happens when I remove that common belief? What happens when the doors swing open and anything goes? That’s about where we’re at.
The other more dramatic astrological event unfolding is...
Uranus moved into the earth sign Taurus a few years ago. As I and others have commented, Taurus, a literally down to earth grounded energy, is not a great place for Uranus. Uranus was the ancient sky god, not grounded, represented in the Tarot deck as the lightning bolt that knocked down the Tower of Babel. Uranus is the iconic ruler of the new age sign Aquarius, and was the first planet discovered because of the use of new technology at the time, the telescope. It wants unrestricted movement. Taurus is all about nailing things down, securing all the hatches, no loose ends. The combination of these two is that the potential energy of the Uranian lightning bolt is held in chains until something provokes a moment of release. At that time, potentially long held pent up energy is released. The release can be as a one-time thing or a series of expressions over the period of the provocation. In this instance Mars is the catalyst. Mars is also not at its best in Taurus; it also does not like being contained. Mars tends to react with a careless impatience when restrained. This is a combination suited well to any kind of breaking out of restraint: breakthrough, eruption, breakdown, angry outburst, crash, breaking the rules without concern for the consequences good or bad, pushing through adversity, winning at all costs, frustration, earthquake, explosion.
If one has the ability to let this energy be expressed with discipline it can be used very constructively to achieve something long sought for, but this is no easy task. It’s drinking water from a fire hose.
The North Nodes add a little dimension to the events. They tell us that this is a hurdle that collectively and individually we have faced before and this time we have to make the step that’s been hard to do if we want to move forward in a healthy way. It’s an opportunity.
When late July comes around, and into early August, watch carefully not to lose your temper and if challenged to put the energy into finding resolution. Don’t throw something at the TV or break the Ming vase, although that would be better than taking it out on someone else or hurting yourself. Exercise but don’t try and set a record, unless you are a professional athlete in a competition. In that case you might win.

What now and just ahead for Putin and Russia
Saturn, the leveler of visionary expansion, moves into tighter opposition to his Pluto
Jupiter met up with Neptune again lately, this February through April. While together this time, they were joined by Venus, the Sun, Mercury and Mars. As I commented in an earlier review the expansive qualities of especially Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces are limitless insofar as the human psyche is concerned. Dreams and visions are very grand. But the reality came as soon as Jupiter departed. Jupiter has now entered Aries, where patience is short for expecting reality to equal the vision.
It’s fine to envision a destiny ahead full of celebration and adoration. It’s good to create a path for success by imagining it, but if this singular self-serving vision clashes with much greater numbers and many other dreams, the shake-out can be a let down.
Pisces can be caught up in a universe of dreams that inspire bold moves. Aries doesn’t wait for evolution, it wants results sooner.
I did a painting years ago of an individual surfing a surging cosmic tide in the human psyche. It was a kind of a Rorschach test; do you see the surfer leading the wave or is the wave taking the surfer? We never have the full picture; it isn’t necessary, isn’t always helpful and is distracting. Our intellect often sees what we consider the full picture, but it is really only our picture. Our intellect dwells on itself, we are very subjective beings. Intuitive knowledge skips trying to intellectualize information in order to own it, to own all there is to know. Intuitive knowledge is knowing what you need to know without being held back by what you don’t know.
Earlier this year Jupiter transited Putin’s natal chart in a favorable relationship/aspect from Pisces to both natal Venus and Jupiter. These aspects contributed heavily to making his decision to "liberate" Ukraine. Putin is a Libra. He has Mercury, Neptune and Saturn in Libra at birth along with the Sun, conveying a belief that he can charm others, that he believes in the illusion of control as a masterful manipulator. Jupiter, working for higher purposes, inflated his belief in being the hand of destiny.
However, Jupiter’s series of aspects to his natal cluster in Libra, while a brief flirtation with Putin’s impending immortality, pales in comparison to Saturn’s over-arching transit in Putin’s natal chart. Saturn is in a growing tighter opposition to his natal Pluto. In the bigger picture any grasp he imagined he had over others is itself part of greater forces that incidentally remind him that he is not immortal, he is like everyone else a flicker of a flame in the hand of destiny, not destiny itself. There are much greater forces at work than individual intentions.
This transit from Saturn opposite his natal Pluto will wane by the end of the year, as Saturn leaves Aquarius early next year and moves into Pisces. That’s two major events with Saturn that are peaked now and wane by the end of the year. This should tell us something about the transitions ahead early next year.
Along the way, Saturn moves into Putin’s 4th house, a changing emphasis for his chart from strategy and planning to trauma in his personal sphere. It is bringing the specter of Saturn’s cosmic scythe into his personal home, shaking the foundations of his self image. Saturn arrived there on the cusp of his 4th House in April, and by retrograde motion will hit again over the summer. This is a harsh reality hitting home. Putin will face severe limits and restrictions in his personal life and may even be confined to it. In the western world, politicians sometimes tell the public they've decided to spend more time with their families when they have to duck out of leadership. Putin will be sticking close to home, insulating himself.
Often when a major planet changes signs, big things happen in the world and circumstances we grew accustomed to that are no more permanent than a flower bed disappear, and people seem amazed because they had grown accustomed to them. Pluto moving into Aquarius is an interesting subject for another day, it’s not done yet in Capricorn.

Most people regard Jupiter according to its physical enormity as being far more powerful and influential in our lives than Venus. What Jupiter does is bring to the table big ideas, hopes and dreams in Pisces. Things seem within our grasp, and they are. Jupiter is perceived to be a better support than the rest of the other outer plants: Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Chiron.
In a month or so when Mars joins Jupiter in Ares everything will have changed from the apparent hopes of recent months into a world that more resembles the state of mind we had before Jupiter entered Pisces and met up with Neptune. What happens when the hopes and dreams of Jupiter and Venus meet up with Neptune in Pisces is played out as the blunt realities of life return to force decisions. We find how successfully flowing or awkwardly dysfunctional our position is and learn the consequences of whatever we attempted to develop in the past few months.
For Ukraine and its supporters, the reality becomes measuring the costs of support and what is now required to make their visions more manifest. Actions speak louder than words and not all of them are in Piscean harmony because while in Ares, Jupiter and Mars are not as interested in the process of imagining. They are seeking resolution, pushing for a clash of realities in order to sort it out and get to what the stronger reality is. It’s not just a question of who has the stronger will, but of what can actually be done - that’s reality. Support of Ukraine from other countries could move from standing by and supplying arms to something more confrontational, more Arian. While this play of nerves might unsettle a lot of people it could also be the shortest route to ending the clash of hopes that’s currently devastating Ukraine and the escalating costs from the Russian military, because it forces the participants and their supporters to deal with realities that in the past couple months they didn’t have to. Jupiter and Mars in Ares are a dramatic departure from their time in the previous few signs, especially when in Pisces.
The climax at the end of April into early May - the transition from Pisces owning center stage to then having to share it with Ares - is a clash of two very different actors in their roles brought out in the open. Jupiter and Mars moving into Ares symbolizes the desire to make the visions of recent months become realities and the willingness to raise the level of drama to whatever is required to make it happen…... because the costs of prolonging the recent state of success/failure are forcing an effort to impose an ending. Many of us will transition from accepting certain realities of recent months to wanting to shape them more. Make things happen.
Uranus can be the only way we get some things done because of restraints we placed upon ourselves. Remember though that this group are in Taurus. Uranus according to its nature wants freedom of expression anytime any place. Taurus tethers all energy to the ground, Mother Earth, and insists on any expression having value in supporting life. Taurus attempts to tie Uranus to the ground full time, and make it behave, and for much of its time in Taurus, Uranus will be restrained. When it has moments of occasional release due to the activation of other planets in aspect or simply passing over it, Uranus has a brief opportunity to send out one of its lightning bolts: a sudden shaft of illumination that potentially changes the view of the landscape, changes how we perceive ourselves in the environment. Uranus has a reputation for being somewhere in between tricky and dangerous, because changes we may really want or need come about by a lightning bolt provocation we are not in control of.

Patterns as vibrating frequencies in our psyche
Patterns are what human behavior is all about and so too with Astrology, mapping the patterns over centuries no less day to day. Patterns of behavior while usually not conscious get repeated, passed on to others, adopted from others, intermingled like instruments in a band. Planetary motions stimulate and modify them and we only become aware of them when they surface as events in our lives. Our narrow immediate focus moves on to other demands and distractions as the patterns continue to be vibrating frequencies in our psyche. So it is with major planetary aspects that can appear to be active for several months, a year or two, even several years or more. Just because we are not conscious of them doesn't mean they are done.
Putin’s Dream vs Compelling Reality
Jupiter and Neptune conjunct by transit in Pisces is putting air in our balloons. This shifts quickly when Jupiter leaves Pisces and enters Aries, in several weeks. But at present Jupiter/Neptune is in an inconjunct aspect to the same natal Libra cluster in Putin's chart. This inconjunct aspect is going to force reality into the dream. The time will then arrive for a decision compelled by various realities.
Obsession. Putin is his own fall guy.
It's fascinating that Putin resonates with his native land to the extent that on this anniversary of Jupiter and Neptune meeting in Pisces almost at the exact degree as they did in 1856, he's sowing the seeds and laying down the fertilizer for his undoing, with a “take out the garbage” Pluto accent, at a time when he feels the confidence of the inner planets propping his sense of destiny up. It's a major setup and he is his own fall guy.
Biden and Zelenskyy transits now and soon
The leader of Ukraine who is distinguishing himself right now had a challenge in his chart more stressful than at present occurring with the summer of phone calls from former President Trump, attempting to coerce Volodymyr Zelenskyy into implicating then candidate Biden. Zelenskyy was relatively new to his leadership role. Pressure from the President of the United States attempted to manipulate him into manufacturing a criminal investigation into candidate Biden's son in exchange for the release to Ukraine of US Congressionally approved financial support. Zelenskyy had to navigate this in an ethical way and at the same time keep the support of the US government. Zelenskyy has troublesome but less severe issues in his chart at the moment. In a year or so he will have to deal with Pluto opposing his natal Mars and then soon after conjuncting his natal Sun. Those could be violent threats to his vitality.
Pluto transforms, while Neptune inspires struggles to reconcile founding ideals with present day reality
Another major event occurring now in the US chart is Neptune transiting in opposition to the US natal Neptune. As it evoked at the birth of the US, there's going to be a generational shift of social consciousness, civil rights, etc. The opposition implies a struggle; reconciling our founding ideals with our current realities. Neptune like Pluto has influence long before it arrives at a critical juncture. Years before. It also will be in effect through the 2024 election in the US due to retrograde motion extending the transit.
Neptune was in the 9th house at the time of this county’s birth - this country was born with 9th house high minded ideals and an unavoidable knowing of the failures to meet these standards. The current Neptune transit's opposition is calling for a hard review of those standards. The transit comes from Neptune transiting in the 3rd house, implying that we are having and will have more out-in- the-open dialogue about the ideals. There's a wide divide in the US at present circulating in our social consciousness, and unfortunately as we enter into the over blown multiyear period of endless presidential election preparation, the factions will take their corners and come out swinging. Racial and religious arguments will be offered to sway opinions. The natal chart is calling out for the challenges to be aired and refreshed. It's up to the people, as it was when the nation was born.
There's also another aspect of Neptune I'd like to suggest we be aware of. Neptune has many key associations including with vast metaphorical and literal oceans and water. Probably in the next two years we become very involved with the world's oceans in a challenging way because it is an opposition aspect. Learning the hard way.

I’m so glad I felt that urge (and then followed it) to create this service directory. Turns out, it is really, really needed right now.
I can’t remember a time where the “collective trauma” and the corresponding need for supportive and healing services has ever been higher. Just Google it – it’s everywhere, in all the news feeds - even Popular Science is talking about the overwhelming need for mental help support in these traumatic times. So many people wanting help.
Without a doubt across the board and all over the world, professionals are experiencing a huge increase in demand for mental health care and self-help services. The W.H.O. recognize it as “dire from a global perspective”. Their data after the first year of the pandemic showed anxiety and depression increased by an astonishing 25%. And they went on to say that number is likely “just the tip of the iceberg.”
And now, after two years of pandemic-related bereavement, stress and confusion, add in the acute concern about massive human migration and suffering Ukraine. There’s an over-the-top level of thirst right now for resilience tactics and tools to handle stress. That thirst is being generated by folks in all walks of life and age groups - kids, teens, parents, teachers, retirees. Everybody.
The thing is, the already overburdened mental health care systems have been working far beyond their capacity to serve for some time. In social media, people report the frustration of long waiting lists and even being turned away by dozens of therapists because they aren't taking on new clients.
Health Canada shares data that confirms an epidemic of chronic stress. Many millions of people acknowledge they are functioning in a constant state of stress right now - dealing with ‘pressure cooker’ situations at home, at work, on social media, with deepening concern for their family and LOOKING FOR HELP.
Services are sorted by category - new categories are being created every day.
Integral Relationship provides a deep study of relationships and the people involved, and gives answers when we wonder 'Why?" romance and relationships falter or fail.
There are many relationship books in the marketplace. They may address an aspect of relationships such as soulmates, or conflict, or the differences between the needs of men and women. Yet with the Integral Relationship material, you get all that, and more. You come away from reading Martin's books with "Ah-ha" moments of "Oh, that's what was happening!"
I was intrigued when I first was introduced to Integral Relationship. I couldn't get enough. I wanted to understand "Why." The books answered questions I had from relationships going back years: Why I was irritated. Why I was irritating! Why we were too far apart. What I wanted for myself. Why settling is of no value in the filling of your soul.
What I found especially beneficial is how this material, while focusing on romance, can be used to understand all sorts of relationships: with friends, family, and even with workmates. It showed me Why we are different. It explained the deepest parts of ourselves that makes us desire specific attributes in others, and why we have conflict when we feel so out of tune with another.
Integral Relationship showed me that we can work on our relationships. We can be kind. We can be allowing of another's traits or even of their peculiarities. Yet when it comes to steadfast connections which allow each other to grow individually, as well as in a couple, we should look for qualities in others that match our needs away from the hormonal influences that wane, and that give romance and other important relationships a decent chance to be successful.
"Why did it happen?" "How can I make it much better?"

Getting in touch with these learnings will provide the opportunity to have those "Ah-ha" moments of understanding. Individuals and couples can learn about and navigate the pieces of themselves that they bring to a relationship.
Knowledge is power, they say.

I understand you started out skeptical about Astrology. What made you start to believe in it?
I can still remember some of the early ones that surprised me and made me realize what a powerful tool it is. I saw that someone had a mentally handicapped sibling. Surprised me more than it did the client because I still had no idea that level of detail was possible. Then a woman who had just bought a house, which of course had been inspected first, called me a month after a reading to tell me I was right —the wiring in the attic WAS bad and a fire hazard. That pretty much did it for me. Recently I was reading for a dear friend and she asked how accurate the timing of transits are for showing a big relocation. I said - well, let’s see. She told me the date of the move and Uranus (change) was exactly conjunct her moon (which represents home among other things) in the 9th house (long distance/foreign) on the very day she left Hawaii for Texas. So yes. It can be very, very accurate.
What is a natal chart?
I like to think I help people up out of the tiny boxes of programming, habit, and limitation and help them see the big picture, from a god’s eye view. When we remember who we are - infinite and divine everything is possible - we can make a shift from seeing life as a school to more of a play or a game. ‘At play in the fields of the lord’ and the Sun card in the major arcana of the Tarot show this Solar and Jovial perspective of life. Life is a mythic journey that is both challenging and playful. Karma plays a big part of what we draw up. Karma is not retributive or punishment but simply the continuing outcome of a chosen action. For example, having a child is often the outcome of having sex. This outcome affects us for the rest of our lives. Some things we “give birth to” continue on for many lives as we experience all there is to that theme. This is why hypnosis and the chart show running themes that play out over lifetimes.
Is there a wrong way to do Astrology?
We humans like anything that shores up our belief systems or confirmation bias etc. It validates who we think we are. And that right there is the key: Who we THINK we are. Even if it limits us, prevents quality of life or makes us miserable, we like to be right and hang on to the habits that we identify with as personality - who we ARE rather than let go of all that so we can be our true selves. This is giving the wounded inner child the keys to the car, the pre-awakened Hanuman who used his powers immaturely. The commitment to have small self/personality in service to our higher selves gets us farther down the path to individuation or self-actualization and the healing of our wounds and neurosis. When we think we ARE our personalities and nothing more, is when we get stuck. I think this is the basis of the religious concept of surrender. It really is the best route to great self-esteem which is crucial for a joyful life.
Honestly you don’t even really need a chart or ephemeris or computer to use Astrology. It can help us own and integrate all our parts so we can become whole and healed even without the specific data a chart offers. Often, we get caught up in all those fun and shockingly accurate things we see in a chart and lose sight of the goal or whole point of it all. If we just think about the archetypes, the areas of life each planet rules over and then go through an introspective process of questioning: Mars: Do I feel powerful in the world? Am I fully present in this physical body? Am I assertive? Moon: How do I feel about emotions? Am I able to use them as they were intended, or do I over identify with them and miss the point? Certainly a chart can help us get at why we aren’t using some quality, or why we are dysfunctional or project it on to others unable to integrate it.

2022 in traditional Numerology is a 6 Energy. Those who understand the Integrated Master Numerology* system also know that the 22 Master Number in this year is deeply significant. In all Numerology systems, 2022 is a 6 energy; in Integrated Master Numerology the 22 Master Number is recognized as a duality quantum influencing factor.
2022 = 6 Energy: Defend Your Happiness
22 Energy - Quantum Influence:
Make a Conscious Effort to Align
Quotes to keep in mind for the year 2022:
“Where attention goes, energy flows and results show.” - T. Harv Eker
“We become what we think about. Energy flows where attention goes.” – Rhonda Byrne
“Energy flows where attention goes.” - Michael Beckwith
“Where attention goes, energy flows; where intention goes, energy flows!” - James Redfield
“Where focus goes, energy flows” – Toni Robbins
“Energy flows where attention goes. What are you giving energy to?” - Stephen Parato
This year I strongly encourage a conscious awareness of your own flowing energetic expression. During 2022, the 6 numeric energy cycle, be mindful of where you are engaging your attention and intention because that is where the energy of your life will flow.
You are the creator of your reality. The 6 Energy and the 22 Quantum influencing factors are all about your focus point. Continuously examine what you are giving power to, what aspect of life (good or bad) you are bringing into your life. Whatever that energy may be to you, be especially mindful of what you give power to in your daily expressions. Ask yourself daily, “Where am I placing my manifestation powers and my point of influence?”
May you create many active and activating life experiences in 2022. Let’s have fun and focus on joy as we co-create love and beauty in life!

Feelings such as “I did something to deserve this,” “I’m bad or dirty,” or “I am not worth it,” are as old as time. To heal these deep-rooted beliefs and feelings takes sensitivity and care on the part of the therapist. Healing might not begin with looking at the incident, but may have to start with healing the inner child or connecting with inner guides, outer spiritual guidance or aspects of the personality that are equipped to face and confront the situation. Often there is cellular DNA and past-life history to heal as well. Sexual abuse, including being both the victim and the perpetrator, is often passed on from generation to generation. A skilled and knowledgeable therapist can help the client to navigate through this complex web and achieve a state of true inner strength and peace, with love and respect for the self.
For myself, one of the great blessings of facilitating Whole Hypnotherapy seasons with clients of abuse is the inter-generational healing that occurs. There is a feeling of profound joy when ancestors come forward with gratitude for the client as healing and release of the abusive patterns free those who have passed over to the other side.
While this article was written specifically about women, I would like to note here that acts of sexual abuse and violation is also carried out against boys and men. These acts may be committed by either men or women.

Much has been made of the 800 years since the planets Jupiter and Saturn were so close together (1226 AD) and the 600 years since they were last in Aquarius (1405 AD), and while these planets come together every 20 years, they are part of larger 200 year cycles having to do with the elements: air, fire, water and earth.
When 1226 A.D. rolled around it was the first in a wave of Air sign conjunctions that led civilization out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance. Both the 1226 A.D. conjunction and the 1405 A.D. conjunction were in the future/forward looking sign of Aquarius.
After that they were together every 20 years in Water signs for roughly 200 years, then the conjunctions moved on to Fire signs and then Earth (the year 2000 conjunction was in Taurus), then Air (2020, Aquarius).
The New Age media is pushing the Aquarian age angle because the conjunction today is at 0° Aquarius, the beginning degree of Aquarius. But it's also the first of a series of Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions in Aquarius/Air signs for the next 180 years.
This conjunction is being compared to the Star of Bethlehem because in 06 BC, Saturn and Jupiter were together in Pisces, heralding the Piscean Age.
People sometimes think the Procession of the Ages is like a light switch being turned on and suddenly it’s the Renaissance, or the Age of Aquarius. But in reality the transition between astrological ages is more like the incremental process of going from night to day, and there's at least a 200 year overlap (try 500!) between Ages. An Astrological Age is 2160 years, and at some point the Piscean Age leads into the Aquarian age, but it's not as simple as saying the Piscean Age is from 0 A.D. until 2160 A.D. (btw: 2160 years × 12 astrological signs = 25,920 years, the Astrological Great Year which is pretty much the same 26,000 years as a Mayan cycle.)
To me the Aquarian age starts in 1962 with an Aquarian boost in February when all the inner planets (the Moon through Saturn) find themselves in Aquarius on February 4. Uranus went into Aquarius from 1995 to 2003, Neptune was there from 1998 until 2012 or so. Pluto is in Aquarius from 2023 until 2043.
Today's conjunction IS a Big Deal, and there's a few more Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions in Aquarius between now and 2199 A.D. That date is probably a good indicator of the Aquarian Age being well under way.
After all the Paradigm shifting Capricorn energy of 2020 I welcome the Age of Aquarius! It will take us out of the Age of Scientific Materialism, where we’ve been for some time.
Saturn is traditional and Jupiter is expansive. Remember, HOW the sky affects you has everything to do with your individual chart, so how the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction will affect you depends upon where 0 degrees Aquarius is in your birth chart and what planets/houses (areas of your life) may be involved. And what better way to find this out than with a personal reading!
I'm presently only doing phone readings (most of my readings have been over the phone in the past few years anyway), and I am available 7 days a week for private astrology consultations and psychic sessions.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!
