Spring Equinox Makes Me Smile

Many scholars believe that the TRUE New Year Day is today, March 20--the day of the Spring Equinox. And I feel there is much merit to this, so I always celebrate this day by communing with Nature, meditation, and prayers.

All of the above actions have been my day thus far...a most holy day. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's a gorgeous day on Maui and Springtime is here in all its glory!

I was reading the blog of the famous astrologer, Alan Oken, where he wrote this, "I would appreciate some feedback from any of you who have 19-20º of Pisces or the other mutable signs prominent in your charts as the events of March 27-28 will be very “interesting” for you, to say the least!."

We shall see what I have to share about this day. I have 19 degrees Pisces Rising in my Natal Chart with Transiting Uranus sitting directly on it and opposing my Natal Sun in 21 degrees Pisces. Adding Venus to this mix will be MOST interesting.

But that is a whole week away and I'll be on vacation. So I'm going to put this UranusonmyAscendantoppositemySunjoinedbyVenus (yes, I wrote it this way on purpose!) outta my head and try not to imagine anything! And I'm returning to enjoy my Happy Holy Ostara.

Please pray for the Tibetan People and for the Highest Good to come forth from the current troubled situation is all I have to add.

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Maui has the highest price of gas in the Nation, and the cost of groceries has also skyrocketed here. I'm grateful and blessed that we can still afford to shop for food unlike many Americans who are struggling to get by in these harsh economic times.

We are blessed with trees that bring forth avocado, mango, papaya, and banana in season. Now the avocado season has ended, and the mango season soon will begin. We share our produce with others, and they share with us. This is one way we bless one another.

Whenever we visit friends or they visit us, it's traditional to bring an offering of food--whether it be ripe fruit from our garden or something else. We never show up empty handed, nor do our friends. And this tradition is itself a blessing!

Having Fun With Astrology

Photo: terragalleria

About two weeks ago a dear friend requested that I do her chart for her. She said she wanted to pay me, and even though I normally don't hang out my shingle as an 'working' astrologer for many reasons, I accepted her kind offer. Because she's a great woman, I really put my all into interpreting her chart and giving her her money's worth. I sent it to her in various parts because it took me all of two weeks to complete it for her! I was elated when I was finished because doing a bang-up job was stressful on me. I once again remembered why I don't desire to be a professional astrologer! I'm happy being a mere student of astrology. I like to have fun with astrology, and that doesn't translate into doing readings.

My friend holds my astro skills in high regard. However, I know differently! And in this lifetime, I may never feel accomplished in this area because I read and study the great astrologers and the information they impart. I feel much more comfortable and sure of my intuition!

Quite often I will see transits, progressions, and aspects in a chart which don't jibe with my intuition. And then I wait and see with hindsight if and how these astro aspects played out. Which was more on the money--the astro info or my intuition? For example, did a transit have THAT much impact? I read that one astrologer said you needed to see a theme repeated THREE times in a chart for it to be considered predictive or powerful. Can "good character" over-ride negative transits in a chart even it has been thrice repeated?

I've also read that the Western astrology modality I employ isn't as accurate for predictions as the Vedic astrological modality. Since I've never studied Vedic astrology, I don't know if this is true or not. Any thoughts on this subject anyone?

I have a cause.
We need those don't we?
Otherwise the darkness and the cold gets in
and everything starts to ache.
My soul has a purpose, it is to love;
if I do not fulfill my heart's vocation, I suffer.
- St. Thomas Aquinas

My angels are always helping me and blessing me in every way every day. I'm constantly telling them Thank You! for all they do. The angels are very real to me, and although I don't SEE them, I experience their handiwork, their angelic assistance. Since I invited them to collaborate with me, my faith has grown in them because of their unfailing help. They've never let me down, and they've performed many miracles that have amazed me because of the intricacies of timing. I never feel bereft because I know I don't walk alone.

Some people could debate what I experience isn't really the help of "angels" but instead a more expansive multidimensional 'me' which operates in a mysterious, helpful fashion. And that very well may be. Whatever it is, I prefer to call this phenomena My Angels.

It's my sense that as one works to rid themselves of selfishness, anger, feelings of lack, and self-pity that one has more power to ignite the (angelic) forces for Miracle Making. This is a moment-to-moment choice. Does one want to choose negativity or what is called in the Hawaiian language, Pono?
