Mars Retrograde Rx VIRGO January 24th, 2012 until April 14, 2012

I still want to publish a 2012 blog post but I haven’t had the interest to complete it yet. And I wanted to publish it before publishing anything else but due to how many (in my mind) negative thoughts about Mars Rx (such as inactivity, lethargy, lack of motivation, accidents, standstills, etc..) that’s been said,…

Astrology: How To Find Your Correct Time of Birth

Don’t know your correct time of birth, without a doubt? In Canada, contact the hospital’s health records department where you were born.

Why I don’t want to be a Therapist or Psychologist…

(Originally published on Friday September 16 ,2011 ) I have been told I’m a really good natural psychologist or therapist. And having a Virgo stellium in the 8th with Mercury & Pluto (not conjunct) with harmonious yet powerful aspects flowing through that house, it’s not really a wonder why I’m told that… I genuinely care…

Astrology: Charlie Sheen, Mars Square Neptune, & Seeing the Gift

Here’s one possible upside: I believe a Healer (Mars-Neptune) is an awesome profession/skill and when you have it in square, you understand people’s pain better. You know “how” to heal in a very primal and enlightened way. However, the square will delay opportunities for you to do it. It will test your knowledge of healing and maybe put you into situations that will help you “get” healing better so you can go out and heal others. 🙂 Our pain becomes healing.

Part One: An Introduction to the 8th House, Eighth House Astrology Series

Life Skills: Words of Wisdom #1 – Confirm Assumptions as Fact (Audio Player)

Recorded on Friday, January 04, 2008. Audio Player – WOW#1 – Assumptions Assumptions can cause misunderstandings, hurt, anger, and pain. 1. Perceive. 2. Assume, and 3. Validate.

Life Skills: Life Coaching – Setting Goals

In my customized psychic life coaching sessions in addition to my clients finding solutions for themselves, I also find many solutions for clients too. Recently I was asked:  How do you set goals? And the following became their homework: SETTING GOALS A. Set a goal that helps you with X as it regards to “x”.…

Life Skills: Who do you know that’s controlling, critical, bitchy, flaky, fat?

When you notice that someone is too picky, critical, controlling, argumentative, defensive, dominant, aggressive, [insert non-social behaviour here] do you take a moment to recognize… Now to blend in astrology. My theory is that a projection is a conjunction that looks like an opposition…

Psychics Are Scam Artists: Diskeptics vs. Believers – The Truth About Psychics

The name I used for people who identified themselves as scientific skeptics instead of openly skeptical, was diskeptic because they were often disrespectful. I haven’t run into any diskeptics since I wrote this back in 2008. Maybe times are changing! 😉 Originally wrote:  January 16, 2008 [sc name=”Book session”] The following are typical diskeptic (scientific…

The Alchemy of Turning a Square Into Trines (Jupiterville)!

A Square turned on its side makes a DIAMOND!  The moral of the picture is to look at things differently. I have a belief that no such thing as good or bad exists, only difference. What’s in a square? That which we call a trine. By any other square would smell as sweet. Oh, I…

Do you have the Perfect Personality?! :)

What attributes make up the perfect personality? In astrology it may have to do with having the home and perhaps exalted sign ruled by the corresponding luminary or planet for EVERY placement in your natal chart. So say you have a Leo Sun, that would mean your personality of being confident and creative is a…

Best Friendships, 7th House Beginnings…

Healthy Friends

I’m not the type to have many mutually Libran 7th house “committed” & Scorpio 8th house “deep” friendships but that’s generally what I desire.

In fact, most of my friendships are the Aquarian “superficial”, “aquantaince”, “groups & networks” 11th house type that generally skim the surface and keep things light, distant, and impersonal yet topics of discussion are deep, optimistic, warm, and spiritual.

There’s nothing wrong with 11th house relationships and in fact, they are low maintanance, committment free, easy-on-the-mind, and full of learning opportunities; however, every once in awhile I yearn for something more.

Teacherless Teaching: The “Fortified Teaching” Method

In my world Students are Learners (who are also Teachers )and Teachers are Guides (who are also Learners).

I want Learners to view themselves as experts and an authority on a subject within minutes or hours to make complex subject matters easily accessible. This approach causes the Learner comfort in expressing their knowledge of the subject to themselves and others and strengthens the learning process.

How Needing What You *Don’t Want* Works

WANTS vs. NEEDS What is a want and what is a need? Looking at some dictionary definitions we get much conflict and overlap about what “want” and “need” means. To me, it’s like this: Wants are desires, wishes or demands, discretionary, learned, futuristic but they feel like they are current. Needs are necessary, required, relieving,…

The Busines of Competition. Is it All About You, Me, or We?

I’m VERY competitive. I’m very competitive with MYSELF. I want to be faster, stronger, better. Not faster, stronger, better than anyone else.

I’m Leo Sun Conjunct Leo Mars with these two planets operating as one. I’m not stuck on what I have already accomplished.

Astrological Signs & Colour: What’s Your Color?

ZODIAC SIGNS, ELEMENTS, AND COLOUR — The following connects your zodiac sign and element with its natural colour. The best balancing or alternate colour or colours can be worn when you are finding the energy of your zodiac sign is too overpowering or underwhelming.

So say you’re a Pisces (water element) and you’re on the shy side – wearing orange can attract people to you and open your energy up. Likewise, if you’re a Leo (fire element) and your energy is too aggressive, wearing pink will encourage people to accept, understand, and welcome you. The flipside is true that when you wear a colour that balances out your energy, you will be mindful to embody more of that colour in your actions and behaviour. So the result is that you have both yourself and others working to balance you to a nice place of well-being and success.

When Opposites Attract… Fireworks Happen!

Fireworks

We have heard the phrase: Opposites attract; however, what exactly does that mean? Well, it can mean that the behaviour and attitude differences in others compels you to get closer to that which is foreign to you. It can also mean balancing an extreme trait or action such as having an introspective and quiet disposition…

Are you good or bad? Naughty or Nice? Whose to say?

I may be fat but I ain’t no Santa. Some people think I’m evaluating their goodness or badness when in fact I’m evaluating whether something works or not and whether there’s hurt or not. To evaluate good or bad is to evaluate a belief system based on parental, familial, personal and/or societal values and opinions. …

8th House Virgo Stellium, 12th House Survivors: Helping Those Who HIDE From Themselves

Self-Development: How much pain do you need to experience to change?

Do you experience enough pain to change? As much as you want to change and say you will change, do you experience enough pain to change? Pain is the catalyst to doing something.
