Holistic Counseling vs. Predictive Readings

This topic is a vast one that I won’t even attempt to cover in a single blog post, but it is one that I would like to share some thoughts about. There are many types of readings for many types of people, two of the most widely practiced being Tarot and Astrology. Readings can be done for entertainment or for serious counsel. Some readings focus on the timing of events, others upon current circumstances or abstract notions.

A reading is a rather intimate encounter with someone, whether or psychic or not, who has the potential to help or hinder the person who seeks guidance. In most cases a reading is best given upon request rather than imposed, and when the person who receives is capable of taking the information they are given and using it responsibility, weeding out the not-useful from the useful and actually applying some effort to change things they have the ability to change with their thoughts and actions.

Just as a person gets the most out of a visit to a doctor or healer by being prepared with issues or questions and the willingness to make adjustments in their life, a person gets the most out of a visit to a reader when approached with this sort of attitude. Check out the book The Timeless Counselor  by June Ahern for some great tips on how to approach a reader of your choice and get the most out of a reading.

One would do well to achieve a certain level of discernment in choosing a reader that they feel compatible with, and not to divulge their secrets to or seek advice from any glamorous reader or charlatan who claims to read the future or locate one’s soul mate. I’ve met plenty of good and bad readers out there, and over time I have mostly realized what not to do in a reading. I have observed words that I found to be hurtful, pointless, and offbase by quite a few. Some readers I’ve met are absolutely amazing, and I’ve had the fortune of considering a few of them friends.

See…words are often a key aspect of readings, and they have the power to manifest things, sometimes very rapidly. A reading can be an act of creation in some cases if the person receiving is very open to suggestion. With this knowledge, a reader carries a very great responsibility in their delivery of certain key words and interpretations of perceived reality.

I do not consider myself a “fortune teller” by any means, but a growing number of people have come back to me during the past couple of years expressing that the readings I gave them proved to be highly accurate in terms of life circumstances and outcomes of situations they previously struggled with. I have heard things like “Exactly what you said would happen happened, exactly when you said it would!”

I don’t advertize as a predictive astrologer or reader, but a major part of what I do is observe the direction of energy currents and offer solution-oriented ideas based on this. My disclaimer is that I am never 100% correct (nor is any other reader) and if someone does not like the direction things are taking, there are usually things that can be done to prevent or change them.

Just as it can be far more useful for a healing practitioner to take the whole person into consideration rather than zero in on just one body part, it can be hugely effective to take the whole person into consideration during a reading and not just one part of a person or what is visible and obvious (DUH!). This means taking into consideration body, mind, and spirit, past, present, future, the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, or whatever else decides to make itself known, and to reflect these things back to someone in a clear, non-biased, compassionate way. It’s up to each person to do with the information what they choose, and as a reader I would rather help to influence someone in a positive and empowering way rather than instill a fear in them of what will happen if they don’t do the “right thing”, whatever that is. Ultimately, that must be decided upon by the querent.

Lastly, I don’t say “never” and I don’t say “definitely” in a private reading context (at least I make it a point not to) because these words tend to be frightening for most people – the opposite of empowering. Contrary to popular belief, this is not “sugar-coating” or “leaving things out”. This is what I call respect for a person’s ability to make up their own mind and carve their own destiny.

All of that being said, it’s that time of year again as the holidays approach and things get even crazier than they are for a lot of us…so I offer more reading Specials for those who are seeking for some clarity and a bit of peace of mind. From now until October 31st I am offering 25% off of 1 hour readings. Gift certificates are also available. You can contact me via blog or email readingsbyyerevan@gmail.com

Post Full Moon in Aries Conjunct Uranus

Sometimes what happens just after a full moon is just as surprising as what happens right before or during. This just past (October 15th) Full Moon 23 degrees Aries conjunct Uranus would be one of those moons. Aries is the sign of initiation and Uranus is the planet of change. There is a lot we have recently left behind, whether by force or conscious choice. These combinations have produced do-or-die type situations and sensations in which the only way is through – there is no turning back. Things that were once identified with as real and true are revealing themselves as phantoms and crumbling like the dead leaves of late autumn. I previously used the scene of Andy’s Escape from the movie Shawshank Redemption as a visual example of an emotional current coinciding with this Full Moon:

Aries’ ruling planet Mars is moving into a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn as they trine the North Node in Virgo, exact on October 19th. This is an aspect that “takes no prisoners” and is about getting a job done and getting it done right, no matter the cost or hard work that is entailed. It is time to recognize the myriad lies and stories we have collected and been taught about ourselves and our world through the ages as just that – lies and stories,  and to step forward as the writers of our own scripts and builders of new foundations. This might seem like doing the impossible, but that’s what makes it so liberating.

The Dark Goddess and all aspects of feminine power and rage has also been strongly featured with this Full Moon that was in conjunction with Eris. Some have experienced her energy in beautiful, inspiring ways and others in soul wrenching ways. The archetype of Lyssa came to mind, as the Greek goddess of mad frenzy and rage, daughter of the night goddess Nyx, sprung from the blood of Uranus. She who causes insanity in humans and rabies in animals is yet another expression of the demonized Feminine.

The Full Moon was also conjunct asteroid Ceres along with Uranus, encouraging self-nurturing individuality and a do-it-yourself approach in general. As this polarized with Libra, many relationships have been taking on new notes and expressions of freedom, versus ownership and possessiveness over the past several days.

There is no way to fully predict the outcome of aspects highlighted by Uranus. Prejudices, false beliefs, and many old attachments must be released, lest they be ruthlessly torn away. It is a time of awakening and rebirth. At this time of year (in the Northern hemisphere) the veils thin and become lifted. Our spiritual eyes become opened and alert to that which is not normally visible.

Venus enters Sagittarius on the 18th, which may come as a relief as the focus shifts from intense interactions and broiling feelings to playfulness and adventure.

New Moon in Libra

The New Moon at 8 degrees of Libra on September 30th brings a breath of fresh air and levity to what have become very serious circumstances during the past several weeks. Being the second New Moon to occur during this month, the New Moon in Libra is referred to as a “Black Moon” in the Western hemisphere.

The New Moon is conjunct Jupiter, highlighting the various relationships shared on all levels. It will be a great weekend for romantic dates, parties, group performances and business collaborations. Libra’s ruling planet Venus is in Scorpio forming a harmonious trine to Neptune which elevates the senses and brings refinement to spiritual and artistic endeavors.

Although a main focus in Libra is upon achieving harmony in relationships, there is a deep inner aloneness that can be experienced in this sign, in reflecting its polar opposite Aries. Festivities, frivolities, and airy-fairy niceties aside, Libra is concerned with Justice.  It is a time for coming together and joining forces as much as it is a time for breaking ties that don’t reflect what is true and real. Of all the cardinal signs, this one has the least qualms about cutting loose any connections that lack fairness, integrity, and respect (after the pros & cons have been weighted a zillion times that is). If a contract seems out of date, it will be now be scrutinized and either updated or torn to shreds.

Mars, the ruling planet of Libra’s polar opposite sign entered Capricorn on the 27th and is being squared by the New Moon. There are several juxtapositions to consider before taking what may be “right action” in areas of question. There is good in the bad and bad in the good and nothing is completely one or the other. Mars in Capricorn gets down to business while Sun in Libra looks for ways to celebrate. There seem to be so much to do yet so little of that precious commodity called time. This adds extra tension to the decision-making process – one of Libra’s major challenges.

Saturn finds its position of exaltation in Libra and the Libra New Moon forms a trine to Saturn in Sagittarius. A voracious search for Truth is shared by both zodiac signs, even if for different reasons. This aspect could serve as a saving grace toward finally beginning to regain level-headedness and organization after the disorienting impact made by 3 eclipses in a row, Mercury Retrograde and the year’s final blow from Saturn’s square to Neptune in September.


The New Moon in Libra highlights the divisions within consciousness and the ongoing struggle to bring disparate parts into unification, or at least to enlist their cooperation. One of my spiritual healers told me once that although we must constantly seek for harmony and balance, it will never be fully achieved in the body or in this dimension. Seeking of harmony is part of the great work of the Soul. If that 100% perfect balance were to actually be achieved, it would set everything completely off again, thus the impossibility of this lofty ideal. Right now, polarizations of all varieties may be springing back and forth from opposite sides – from male to female, from intuitive flash to intellect, from defined structures to superfluous possibilities, from creative flow to solid formation.

In summary, there are so many cool things happening all of the sudden – so many options and opportunities being presented that one of the greatest challenges could be deciding which one or ones to act upon.

Autumn Equinox 2016

The Autumn Equinox on September 22nd is significant and potent in several ways. This time of year always highlights a period of harvest and closure on certain levels but that which is being brought to the surface of collective consciousness now is unlike what has been experienced in many years. Part of this is because of what is still being assimilated due to the past three eclipses in a row.

Mercury will have just gone Direct (since its Retrograde motion on August 30th) at 14 degrees Virgo the night before the Equinox forming an exact trine to Pluto in Capricorn, as Pluto slows down to turn Direct on September 26th. Days ago, the building of this aspect began to greatly heighten communications and perceptions on this and subtle planes of existence.

The Sun enters Libra and forms a conjunction to Jupiter and the Super Galactic Center (2 degrees of Libra), which may generate effects involving massive reorientations within relationships through the rest of September. Jupiter entered this area right around the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the 16th. The relationship areas undergoing reevaluation and change may involve any ranging from romance to business endeavors, legal contracts, family issues and friendships to group dynamics. There is great potential for healing and reunification, but for some there may also be an upsurge of deep pain. One of the greatest gifts offered by this transit is that of an increased ability to release baggage and sorrow around both past and present relationships and to come to a clearer understanding of multi-layered interactions.


Mars at 26 degrees Sagittarius is conjunct the Galactic Center and the asteroid Lachesis, named after the second of the 3 Fates of Greek Mythology as she who measures the thread spun on Clotho’s spindle and determines the Destiny of any given life before it is snipped at by the third Fate, Atropos. This may indicate intense encounters and experiences of a psychic or super-conscious nature that seem fated, meant-to-be, or inescapable.

Venus at 28 degrees of Libra is conjunct asteroid Eugenisis, which could shed light on some rather strange “cross-overs” of all kinds, and I mean all kinds. I think I will leave these up to the imagination along with the observation of current world events by those who are reading this. Since the square between Saturn and Neptune is separating but still in effect, we cannot jump to conclusions yet about whether these crossovers are positive or negative, and the emphasis in Libra necessitates neutrality in some ways. This is especially true in situations where disillusionment and obsession is reaching or has just reached a peak, making it difficult to see the forest for the trees.

The day begins with the Moon in Gemini is in trine to Pallas Athene in Aquarius, highlighting the strength of the Feminine being expressed through various means. The Moon then moves into a sextile with Eris (the Dark Feminine) and Uranus in Aries, which although a fleeting aspect is part of an ongoing theme involving Eris that began in June and will last until Spring of 2017. This theme includes radical social change in relation to feminine principles – their suppressions, explosions and expressions. The day comes to a close with an opposition between the Moon and Mars and the Galactic Center, which is to say, BAM baby, BAM. And totally truthfully, I wrote that before I checked and found out the Moon will literally be in conjunction with the asteroid BAM. So there you have it. Whatever BAM means to you!

Meanwhile, I am peacefully enjoying the harmonious brutality of fast and furious metallic shredding while sipping a hot cup of tea during Venus’s late degrees through Libra, as her consort Mars makes his way through the late degrees of Sagittarius. What can I say…I really love music, both classical styles and some of those considered viciously hardcore. Guess it’s a Libran thing.

Pisces Lunar Eclipse 2016

I am a bit behind on today’s penumbral Lunar eclipse report…but given that the full moon just occurred 24 degrees of Pisces, opposite of a Retrograde Mercury in Virgo it seems just as well (please pardon my tardiness). Dreams, visions, memories, and heightened emotional and spiritual states have been the themes building up to this cosmic release. The Moon was in conjunction with Chiron, which has been triggering the awareness of pain that was buried within the depths of our souls, from this and past lives.

Originally, the ruling planet of Pisces was Jupiter. Later
when Neptune was discovered it became the co-ruler. The Jupiterian expansiveness is in effect on so many levels and dimensions it can be difficult to discern what is coming/going, and where any of it is leading or landing. Neptune also has a way of going and going, like Alice down the rabbit hole, to a place or state of complete and utter mystery. Saturn is still separating from its year-long square to Neptune, leaving us with much to reflect upon yet not much form to work with.

Pisces is symbolized by the two fish swimming opposite of each other, sometimes with the appearance of a yin-yang. Like the sign of Libra, where Pisces ruling planet Jupiter now transits, Pisces is very much concerned with peaceful solutions and resolution. Inherent is the understanding that there is always more to life than what meets the eye. The Equinox falls on September 22nd, when the Sun moves into Libra, the day after Mercury goes Direct at 14 degrees of Virgo in a trine five days before Pluto turns Direct at 14 degrees of Capricorn on the 26th. We currently have the opportunity to look beyond appearances and truly see what is going on beneath the surface of a thing, relationship or situation that has been causing frustration for a long time.

When the emotional climate gets too intense to bear it can be helpful to stand back for a moment and view one’s own life as they would that of a stranger’s or a character on television…

What is the funniest, most ridiculous thing somebody ever said or called you with great passion/anger in their voice? True story here: “You’re nothing but a selfish prick!”

But you know what? It ultimately helped me to be a better person, because I stood taller and more confident than before. What’s great is I can laugh about it now, although at the time I responded in shock. I’m not sure what’s sillier – that someone said this to me, or that I reacted in shock. That was quite a long time ago. In recent months I’ve had similar encounters, with the opportunity to respond differently to  crazy projections.

The Piscean theme of purification also indicates this is an optimal time for clearing space both physically and energetically. This can be done with the use of essential oils, burning herbs, healing water treatments (steamrooms, saunas, baths, etc), flower essences, mantras, and many other tools.

Speaking of Flower Essences, I am available to make custom blends for internal or external use. The new ebook Flower Spirit Medicine will become available in print in late October. Send me a note if you’re interested in winning a copy of the ebook version (names will be drawn on the Equinox!)🙂

Aftermath of the Saturn-Neptune Square: Delayed Reactions

“And so castles made of sand, fall in the sea, eventually” – Jimi Hendrix

Having stolen both material and immaterial goods, Saturn’s square to Neptune has come and gone like a thief in the night…a very long and dark night stretched over the time span of one year. The exact dates of its three major peaks were November 26, 2015, June 18, 2016, and September 10, 2016.

Saturn, the builder of form has been transiting truth-seeking Sagittarius since December 23 2014 until December 19th of 2017. Neptune, the bringer of dreams has been in the sign of its own domain, Pisces since February 2012 until 2025. While Saturn’s attention is placed in structure, Neptune’s is upon its dissolution.Optimized by JPEGmini 0xa2b342cf

Saturn rules sticks and stones, bricks and bones, the tables we dine upon. Neptune rules rivers, tears, imaginary monsters and Immaculate Conception. Saturn may lengthen but Neptune will spread. If Saturn has found truth in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces may have easily distorted it.

The struggle that has been faced with these two planets in a metaphorical arm wrestling match is the struggle that each of us have faced or will face at some point in life. It is the struggle against forces much greater than ourselves, or of being forced into a battle we know that we will lose but must fight nonetheless. It is the thankless job that must be done. It is the helpless dying who must be fed and administered medicine, even as they decline. It is the gray blur between black and white, right and wrong, moral and immoral. It is, for Americans, the humiliating social collapse marked by Democratic and Republican parties both having apparently gone off the deep end. It is the fear of losing everything, but waking up each day with everything still seemingly intact. It is the kind of torture that is inflicted with one of the worst tools in existence – that of threat.

What just happened?

When one is busy trying to evade the attack of something, they often overlook or under-look what is coming at them from a different direction. Their blind spot makes them vulnerable prey. They are suddenly caught unawares, but have to spend considerable time extricating themselves from what has become a complex trap.

As a child or at any time in life, did you ever experience a delayed reaction to an injustice done to you? If someone suddenly punched you from behind on a sunny afternoon at the playground, were you too stunned to respond? Later, your hurt and shock turned to anger, but it was too late. Your attacker was nowhere in sight. This did happen to me. The delayed fear experienced from this kind of attack can potentially sabotage future relationships and put a person constantly on guard.

Others may have encountered the misfortune of being robbed, or even raped, physically or psychically. At the time it occurred one might have been unable to respond. By the time one figured out how to defend oneself, the damage was done. If something like this happened to you, when the feeling of vengefulness finally arose, most likely you found your powerless yet again, without an outlet for your rage, feeling as though you had nobody to blame but yourself.

The battle between the two forces of Saturn and Neptune doesn’t involve fair play. Nobody gets to prepare. They only get to recover, if they survive. That means those who are the perpetrators of threats and violence don’t get off scot-free, no matter how things temporarily appear on the surface.

Kronos and Poseidon

In Greek mythology, Kronos (Saturn) swallowed his son Poseidon (Neptune) but Zeus (Jupiter) came to  Poseidon’s aid by making Kronus drink an elixir that caused him to regurgitate his son. Here I will take a moment to say thank you, Jupiter in Libra which entered on September 9, the day before Saturn’s last square this year with Neptune. I’m sure Kronos had some perfectly rational (in his mind) reasons for swallowing his son, mainly the fear that he should become more powerful than himself. This story in itself offers us much food for thought. Who is having the last laugh in all of this? Fire burns, earth disintegrates, air disperses, but water,  that mystery element overcomes all.

A deeply afflicted Saturn might want all the power, all the money, all the results of others’ hard labor for himself. An afflicted Neptune, ruling poisonous liquid injections has been reflected back to us in the form of forced vaccines that destroy immunity, crops saturated by Roundup (glyphosate) that cause mutilations, and continued Fukushima radiation-contaminated seas and shores.


The aftermath of the Saturn-Neptune square is somewhat like the mess we have to clean up after frantically looking for something, or after there has been a raid. Objects, furniture, papers, cloth, treasures, words and their meanings have been strewn about like heaps of indecipherable trash.

Neptune often does not seem to discriminate in which boundaries it dissolves. When going along with the flow, we can pretend that our intentions are noble or compassionate, but underlying motives will eventually be revealed. Some of the walls we built around each other in the past were unhealthy and needed to come down during 2015. Only after the walls came down did we realize how inhibiting they were. Who or what was difficult to understand, trust or relate to may have become as close as family. Or, the opposite. Some discovered they were literally sleeping with the enemy.

Delayed reactions may have come in relation to having been deceived and violated. The psyche of the human collective has indeed been violated repeatedly through the centuries. In today’s world, increased manipulation through the media has replaced much of the overt violence of previous wars. The lies are so twisted that people believe they need to remain safely locked into the victimhood that they find themselves in. They fight for, rather than against crimes that keep them enslaved.

And so, this is what it’s come to. Now we sit/stand/or lie in the aftermath of things we did and didn’t have any control over, all mixed together as One. The thought could be sickening enough to make one vomit. It could also be just the wakeup call that is needed in order for genuine, voluntary change to occur.

Find an Outlet

One of the worst things to live with is fear, and second to that is all of the toxic build up that occurs around it. The clutter. The stuckness. The sickness. The hate. When we face our fears one by one, many of the toxins have a way of dissipating or exiting our bodies, minds and spirits. Sometimes we need to find and utilize an outlet for our fear, our anger, and our deep hurt. That outlet could be a punching bag, an isolated mountain, a pillow, a letter that is written, or some form of art that expresses what cannot otherwise be expressed.

If this calls to you, find that outlet and make it a priority. What’s amazing is just how much energy becomes available to the one who has become free of the baggage of irrational and even a few rational, yet excess fears. Don’t ever let yourself be diminished by toxic fear and threats ever again. You are meant to shine!

Jupiter in Libra 2016-2017

The Great Benefic Jupiter enters the sign of Libra on September 9th 2016 until October 10th, 2017. The recent transit through Virgo since August 11, 2015 has been an excruciating one on planet earth, although many useful things came of it. Mercury Retrograde has been in close contact with Jupiter in its late degrees through this sign since late August 2016, reminding us of all the loose ends that need to be tied before we can move on. The focus since last Fall has been on making corrections, cleaning up the messes made by those who came before us in addition to those we ourselves have made, working darn hard for minimal reward and trying to dodge all of the incessant nitpicking and fault-finding in ourselves or others – all a fancy, long-winded way of saying that Jupiter exiting Virgo is like saying “Good Bloody Riddance!”

Relationship Highlights

Jupiter in Libra accentuates a love of art, beauty, romance, and the finer things in life. Partnership goals will become prominent and possibly quite successful. Professions and pursuits related to business collaborations, fashion, interior design, music and the arts in general will find greater expression during this Jupiter transit than the previous one.

Lonely folks, take heart because your power animal, cool kids, or significant other might soon appear! Those whose relationships are on the rocks, don’t fret – even if it’s time to part ways the parting could be more amicable than expected. Just don’t expect any relationships to be “normal” in the months to come, whatever that means to you. There are likely to be a lot of quirks and exceptions to the rules made. Since Jupiter encourages more and more and more of a thing wherever he transits, the result in Libra could be polygamy, being torn between two lovers, leaving one relationship and jumping into another, benefiting from the wealth of a partner, friends or lovers going into business with each other.

Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) have been heavily impacted during the past four years to the Uranus-Pluto square and myriad other factors. My fellow Librans out there feeling worn out and war-torn may be sensing that things are finally about to shift in their favor. Yes, it’s true! It’s not just wishful thinking this time but things are really changing for the better for a change. Before getting out those pretty teacups and making party arrangements though, there are a few things to be aware of. We must not and cannot avoid the darkness, after all Libra is about both balance and contrast. It is also about confrontation.

With Jupiter in Libra our attention will be drawn toward working through all of our relationship dynamics – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the ecstatic. All that is Libran, including charm, courtship, and marriage will be highlighted in the year to come. We’ll also be dealing with or witnessing disagreement, divorce and endings of relationship situations that just don’t work anymore. Unfinished business will reach completion. Old contracts will be broken, and new commitments will be made.

Jupiter does absolutely nothing in a small way but heightens our experience of any given sign and aspects being made to other planets. Jupiter in Libra will be spending a large portion of time in an opposition to Uranus in Aries from the Winter Solstice in late December 2016 until the Spring Equinox in Late March of 2017. Many surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant will come through other people during this time, and then again in late September. Jupiter will move into a pushy square with Pluto late Spring in effect until late August of 2017. Power trips could lead to destruction or stimulate higher ways of communicating and coming to agreements without the compromise of personal values.

The transit of Jupiter in Libra might be fun in some ways but will probably not be all fluffy like a bunny or bouquet of flowers. It will reveal what divides us just as much as it reveals what unites us, and why. It will reflect back to us the lines that have been drawn between race, creed, gender, and class. It will very likely ask each of us the highly uncomfortable question, “Which side are you on?” in whatever divided situation we may find ourselves in. The fence won’t hold up anymore. There are choices to be made in how to resolve conflicts and achieve harmony and fairness.

Social Justice

Both secret admirers and enemies could suddenly make themselves known during Jupiter’s trip through the sign of the Scales. The other side of the story will be spoken, whether anyone wants to hear it or not. Not to mention, the turning of tables in unjust scenarios (or evening of the scales) with a ferocity that nobody saw coming may be delivered straight from that hard fist of iron adorned in baby soft velvet. Isn’t that special.

Those who couldn’t handle Jupiter in Virgo’s pokes and jabs might want to brace themselves, for the next couple of years actually. I wanted this to sound super diplomatic but that’s not always the way things roll… those who have been running away from truth or thinking they can get away with murder might want to basically get ready for a massive “Shut up bitch, and listen.” session from the Cosmos. The transit of Jupiter in Libra could offer such people the perfect opportunity to come clean about something, make a confession or make amends for previous wrongdoings, but very few will be forced into such confession. The decision to come clean is best made from within.

In the world of politics Jupiter’s activities indicate foreign policies, government and laws in general. Peace is what We want so badly with anything in Libra. Jupiter here could certainly raise ideals while simultaneously stirring the pot. That man’s man gets his huge hand in there just in time for the elections. Therefore, it doesn’t look like peace and harmony is what we’re in for on the whole. Violence could easily just go back-and-forth with nothing getting accomplished other than harm. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, an arm for an arm. Threats both real or perceived will be reacted to in big ways.

I sincerely hope that Native Americans are able to successfully protect the land from the US government’s further oil drilling in what has been called the “largest Native protest in history“. Anyone who would dare continue to rape and pillage the earth in this way is utterly insane, and None of us should be the enablers of such atrocity.

Jupiter almost joins forces with Saturn early on but it’s just not happening until August of 2017. Surely, we can try our best to be ready for enough excuses – enough ifs/ands/buts/somedays/and maybes to drive us barking mad, while exercising our abilities to stay calm and faithful in that morbid state of being called Limbo. There’s still so much to learn about relationships, negotiation, what’s fair and people’s rights versus the so-called Rights of the People. What “People”?

Last time Jupiter transited Libra between September 2004-October 2005:

  • George Bush got reelected as president just after a video of Osama Bin Laden threatening the USA with terrorist attacks and taunting Bush was widely broadcast.
  • The battle with Iraq and the Middle East continued. The US launched attack in Fallujah. The US Consulate was attacked in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. A US military base was attacked in Mosul, Iraq, and then a second battle of Fallujah took place.
  • North Korea let the USA know in no uncertain terms that it possessed nuclear weapons that it wasn’t afraid to use in self-defense.
  • Mark Felt, at age 91 and three decades later finally publicly admit to his anonymous role in leaking details regarding Nixon’s Watergate Scandal. He was the one referred to as “Deep Throat”.
  • There were several intense hurricanes that had devastating impacts on many homes and lives, with Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 being the deadliest. Since hurricanes exist partially due to raging winds, this is one of the dangerous natural manifestations of an afflicted air sign.
  • On the lighter side, Youtube went online for the first time. Uranus in Aquarius in harmonious trine to Jupiter probably had something to do with this.

I imagine that there are going to be some major Wizard of Oz type awakenings, whether for better or worse. The little guy on the other side of a screen holding up a puppet whose shadow appears enormous could finally be exposed. Perhaps he is smacked with an onslaught of tomatoes. Perhaps he discovers that he is far more entertaining and respected as he is than the show he has been putting on.

The Law of Attraction

Whatever we put out during Jupiter’s transit through Libra, we will get more of, so let’s choose wisely. It doesn’t matter whether one believes in karma or not. What I’m talking about is simply the law of returns. Cause and effect. The Law of Attraction has become a catchy New Age title referring to the fact that our focus tends to determine the quality of our experiences overall. We attract into our lives what we are most feeling, expressing, giving, and doing. Like attracts like, but so do opposites. Libra enjoys controversy and contrariness and there will be plenty to go around.

In the areas where there has been stalling, hesitation or failure to act due to fear, we will be challenged to rise to amazing new opportunities being opened to us. This doesn’t mean we should take every offer or put ourselves on the line. It just means we need to get out of our own way and get on with it.

In general there will be an inclination to relate to others in harmonious and gregarious ways. People will enjoy gift giving and celebration. With Jupiter in Libra we stand a high chance of actualizing our desires, particularly those that include others. When we we recognize our truth, our allies and our abilities we go for the gold!
