Juno is one of the many asteroids I discuss with my clients in my Asteroid Allies readings. Since Juno is on my MC, my midheaven point of career, I’ve studied her significance quite a bit. Juno is a complicated archetype, which makes her fitting for relationships. Juno was the Roman equivalent of the Greek Hera, […]
It sounds cliched and new-agey, and the ego despises it. But LOVE knows its Truth and this Truth produces Faith. What mantra of the Universe delivers us from the shackles of fear into the liberating arms of Faith? Everything happens for a reason. There is a plan. The Divine Will IS. Approaching March 8th’s Pisces […]

Whereas Numerology’s Personal Year describes the major motifs, situations, circumstances, and challenges you will address individually in a given year, the Universal Year describes the umbrella themes for all of humanity in 2016. 9 is the terrain we travel this year, and this landscape is summarized in one word: SURRENDER. Since the 9 year is […]
One of the most revealing techniques in Locational Astrology is called Local Space. With this tool, we can see what areas of the earth will invite a certain kind of energy to emerge for you. We can also think of Local Space as places where specific planetary “teachers” will profoundly influence all aspects of your […]
Imagine on the day of your birth, Mom or Dad lifted you up the heavens and pointed to each planet in the exact direction it was in the sky—there’s Jupiter, there’s Saturn, there’s Mercury. This is the premise for what astrologers call Local Space Lines. One way to think about Local Space lines is almost […]
NUMEROLOGY of 2017 – Number One, Baby
A completely new cycle has emerged after closing a 9 year odyssey. In 2016, certain karmic patterns and stories have needed to be released and resolved on both the collective and personal level. We also learned about the power of service and true humanitarian spirit, even amidst tragedy and divisive politics, our levels of compassion and empathy have grown. Whatever we have shed or completed in the 9 year has made space for the thrust forward into the unprecedented territory of the Universal Year Number 1.
The 1 asks you: If you were functioning at your Superhuman level, who would you be, and what would you be accomplishing?
The 1 harnesses a fiery energy of self-motivated risk-taking and passionate desire to grow. 2017 is not the year to hide or hold back, but rather to fearlessly fly into your daredevil individual expression. As the first number, 1 is endlessly creative and innovative. Thus, 2017 is the year to reinvent yourself through inspired new beginnings. “Know Thyself” will ring as one of the year’s mantras, as each of us will benefit from continued self-study through systems and practices like Astrology, Human Design, Numerology, Yoga, and Meditation.
The 1 can be a ruthlessly ambitious number and often ignore the needs of others. Thus, in relationships, it will be one of our challenges to clarify individual desires and learn how these correspond or not to shared goals, and make our necessary adjustments. We will also experience impatience with relational drama since this will distract from what we are trying to achieve in life.
Additionally, we need to activate whatever projects have been stagnant but which we feel are integral to our future evolution. Simultaneously, we want to acknowledge ALL of our talents and abilities. There are many online platforms now, such as udemy.com or Skillshare.com, for teaching and earning resources in whatever area you have mastered an ability, so it’s time to confidently express the radiance of your being.
Meanwhile, we should maintain the humility to know what skills are lacking, and the thirsty eagerness and dedicated action steps to integrate new tools in our toolbelt to become more of an empowered leader. You might need to embrace more time for isolation in order to cultivate self-development. Frivolous social time or endless hours on facebook or online without a dedicated focus will not serve the 1’s desire to achieve. Let your entrepreneur out and allow fresh ideas to flow. There may even be new inventions, technologies, or trends in 2017 that will dominate much of the next 9 year cycle.
Interestingly, Donald Trump is in a 19/1 Essence in both 2016 and 2017. The Essence number is one of the most powerful influences in Numerology, a cycle revealing important life lessons, areas of potential success and support, and the emotional state in which we perceive our environment. For Donald, the possibility of the 1’s visionary leadership may get “trumped” by stubbornness, impatience, greed, and an obvious desire for personal gain.
The 1 year may be most challenging for Life Path numbers 9, 2, and 6. You can find your Life Path number by adding your birthdate together and then reducing to single digits unless it’s an 11, 22, or 33, Numerology’s master numbers.
As the week of Elections 2016 dawns and possibly the most unprecedented campaign in U.S. history finally ends, more Wikileaks and allegations seeming to unfold constantly. Have you listened to the riveting new interview with Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks, reveal even further shadows of the candidates?
In my new video blog below, I share the astrology of the candidates, painting deeper insights into these figures and the hidden layers of their character, including their most potent current cycles. If you’ve asked WHY we are in this current situation, this video may unveil some enlightening answers.
In addition, my last vlog revealed the Human Design of the USA’s two presidential candidates—their motivations, their emotional natures, their personal agendas, their thought processes, and so much more. Check that post out here!
May the stars light your way hOMe.
Human Design is one of the most powerful tools to gain insight into one’s “genetic” strategy to feel confident in making key life decisions. Design provides profound revelations about the USA’s two presidential candidates—their motivations, their emotional natures, their personal agendas, their thought processes, and so much more. In my new video, you will learn about all the basic Human Design components—Strategy, Type, Inner Authority, and Profile—through a deep analysis of the energetic similarities and differences of two candidates. To quote a political candidate, I hope this will bring “tremendous and big league” insight into the political circus. 😉
During the Sun’s journey through Libra every year at this time, balance and fairness in relationship always become dominant themes in our collective psyche. This theme is especially empowered now by the relational intensity and focus on shared resources, control, and power as goddes of love Venus is in the underworld throes of Scorpio.
While the vlog I recently uploaded about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce is about the astrological symbols behind the end of a marriage, I also wanted to share an important and surprising new finding about what makes relationships successful and sustainable. It all has to do with “intention” behind “attention.”
The Power of Positivity
Of course, we all know that if we share some negative news or find ourselves in some emotional upheaval, we want and need support from our partners at that time. But some researchers have found that it is actually the response to good news that holds more currency for joy and connection in relationships.
According to an essay in Scientific American, researchers have found that couples who answered good news in an active-constructive way, demonstrating interest and positive reinforcement, scored higher on almost every measure of relationship satisfaction. For instance, if I share with my partner a promotion that I receive at work and my partner responds with a negative statement, like “That sounds like a lot more work!” or even with a non-engaging statement, like “That’s great, now what’s for dinner,” this can be extremely damaging to our relationship.
We want an active-constructive response, to feel like our partner “gets” us and cares about not only our news, but our individual growth. Indifference or negativity can send us or them out the door quickly, while celebrating positive news can actually help couples remain together longer, and also tends to correspond with partnership in which fun is emphasized and conflicts are diminished.
Whether a first date or a long-term commitment, think about what good news your partner has shared with you and how you can enhance it and even rephrase it with another positive affirmation. This action represents the luminous pinnacle of the sign Libra and its gift for support and focus on our partner.
I don’t often report on celebrity lives, but I have referenced Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie quite a bit in terms of Locational Astrology, and these iconic figures can teach us much about astrology, relationship dynamics, and especially now the power of Planetary Transits and the “Composite Chart”—the two as one. Hopefully these videos and chart interpretations will enlighten and inspire you.
If you haven’t been following the story, Brad and Angelina—Hollywood’s uber super couple 13 years and with 6 kids—are divorcing after Angelina filed papers a few weeks ago, citing “threats to the health of the family” as her main reason. She has also asked for full custody of their children with only visitation rights for Brad, who many sources cite as having an excessive alcohol problem. This has not been a passive, low-key proceeding with both parties’ celebrity lawyers, and Angelina’s team of three high profile lawyers. Currently, the couples have agreed to both separate and family counseling and Brad will be able to visit kids under the supervision of a therapist.
Here’s the first installment of a three part video series, focused on Brad’s cycles. Sending prayers of peaceful relations for all.
