It takes a lot of courage to be the one who says the Emperor has no clothes on. What are you seeing and hearing when you listen to the news? Pierce through the veil. Transformation is all around us!

I hope your holiday was restful.
Now that Mercury has finally moved out of watery passive ( stay home and sleep) Pisces into courageous, pioneering Aries, facts will begin to emerge that were not present before. The media was selling the belief that anyone over the age of 14 could very well get the Covid 19 virus and die.
On the very day that Mercury went into the sign of the trailblazer, Friday, April 10th, the CDC released data that in 90% of cases of people requiring hospitalization who were in the 20-55 year old range, they had at least one co-morbidity disorder. Listed as the most common were diabetes, hypertension, chronic lung disorder, and heart diseases. People who smoke and/or are at least 25 pounds overweight are at very high risk. I’m sure the stats don’t include hospital personnel on the front lines who are dealing with exhaustion and high exposure to the virus. And, this refers to those hospitalized, not anyone who happens to test positive for it.
From reports of famous people, it also seems that exhaustion combined with being exposed to large groups of people in contained spaces ( such as planes) were also at risk, but again most did not require hospitalization.
Last October here in Asheville, at a county fair, 124 people contracted Legionnaire’s Disease. To quote NPR, “While many healthy people might encounter Legionella without growing ill, it can especially affect smokers, people over the age of 50, those with chronic lung conditions and people with weakened immune systems.”
Aquarius rules large groups. Saturn, the planet of constriction just went into Aquarius. I predict we will see a change next year around events involving large groups of people at least for a few years.
As I was writing my soon to be released book, The LifeQuake Miracle, I included a quote from Jonas Salk, the scientist credited with curing polio. “Evolution favors not the survival of the fittest as Darwin had touted, but who fits best for the evolutionary mandate of the time.” I believe that as we step into an evolutionary leap in consciousness, who fits best for the planet’s healing are people who adopt healthy eating habits, exercise, and don’t treat their lungs and the environment as a toxic waste dump. Now, this does not include people who were born with respiratory challenges who have had to learn most of their lives to take special care of their bodies.
What doesn’t work in the new species is excess. What the data shows is that the more food consumed, the more waste produced. Countries have personalities. When my former mother in law came to visit from England, she shared with me her observation of watching Americans eat and the quantities that they eat in restaurants and how sedentary we are as a culture. She was elderly but walked for an hour every day as she had done her entire life.
We are a country who binges. We binge on shopping, food, and now, television series since the invention of smart apps like Netflix and Amazon. Some of my clients have complained of weight gain the last few weeks. It is understandable to reach for comfort as we adapt to this new normal. However, getting out of the houses and moving one’s bodies is muy importante. Sweating detoxes both your physical body and your emotional body. Your lymphatic system and your lungs will love you for it!
Speaking of Netflix, they have a new series based on Sigmund Freud’s early career as a neurologist. Freud was a Taurus. Ordinarily, you don’t see a lot of rebelliousness in the workplace of those with this sun sign because they care too much about their financial security but Freud had a Mercury ( your thinking and communication) Uranus ( out of the box of convention) conjunction. We have Uranus moving through Taurus now for a few years to come yet, breaking up our false sense of what security really is ( clue: it’s not staying home that will bring a sense of true emotional safety, although it it necessary to stop the spread of the virus). Uranus is the rebel, the iconoclast. Freud tried to play it safe by being a neurologist and working in the hospital like a good Jewish boy. (There is a touching scene with his mother at Shabbat.) However, he believed that hypnosis and the one to one relationship with the patient could heal people who were suffering from illnesses that had an emotionally traumatic origin, so amongst neurologists was considered a heretic.
Watching this brought me back to a time when I got out of graduate school where I was trained in Neo-Freudian theory. I wanted nothing to do with this old paradigm of analyzing people. Yet, a hundred years ago, he was proposing something very avant garde for the period. Analysis for those who could afford it became the forerunner of personal growth. This was the beginning of “what fits best” for the hundred year awakening that began in the Victorian Age. Being a trailblazer is not easy though. His coping strategy for bucking the system and his own family included becoming a cocaine addict.
So often, those who broke new ground in the past, LifeQuake pioneers as you will, have turned to drugs to numb the pain of rejection from their peers. However this is a new time. Evolutionary change management requires listening to your intuition for signs in advance. We will see many more freedom lovers emerge in the next few years because what fits best is telling the truth to yourself first and then the world.
Further, we will see that following your true purpose is an evolutionary mandate for the new human and that out of that consciousness, addiction will decrease. Mother Earth ( Pachamama) has become ruthlessly compassionate. She has no room for people who wait until their lives go up in flames anymore. A “disastering rather than mastering change” mentality won’t allow us to survive on the planet. And for this reason, preparing for the return of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in late Fall needs to start now with impeccable health habits, self compassion, and excavating your cellar ( the unconscious) for clues to your true purpose.
Astrology Tips for Your Work Week
- Pay attention to your dreams Sunday evening. Monday, the moon will trine Uranus in the wee hours of the morning, west coast time which can bring inventive ideas. Also, beginning Sunday evening for 36 hours until Tuesday morning at 8:34 AM, the moon will be out of bounds making for more emotional decision making. People may also be a little friskier around bending the rules on our stay home, stay safe cycle.
- Tuesday there are more challenging aspects from the moon to Pluto and the sun.
- Wednesday is the day to pull the trigger on projects or meetings as long as you don’t skip any steps or take any unnecessary risks.
- Thursday, there are no exact aspects with the planets which can have the effect of creating an even greater feeling of isolation, so use the time to go within.
- Friday morning is best for routine tasks as we have a void moon until 11:30 AM PDT or, work on your serenity practice.
You building up your immune system and serenity practice, (whatever that is) now is the key to transformation for the world when the alignment of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto come back into conjunction around Halloween through December 15.
We are gradually moving into a completely new world but this will take time. Every time you meditate, pray or listen to a class that supports your personal growth, you participate in evolving the world into a gentler, more compassionate place. Congratulate yourself for any signs of rebirth that you experience in yourself!
A little reminder:
VENUS is now out of bounds for two months in Gemini. Venus rules what we love, who we love and how we love. This bears repeating: If we are at home for half or all of this time, what you have to be careful of is EXCESS: turning to food, spending, whatever your addictions are can expand if you are not mindful . The market can swing wildly during this time. Further, Venus rules music and our values.
Spending money on that which will support your true well being will spiral you up at an accelerated pace!
A free new video on how to use Venus out of bounds has been loaded up to my website that can help you use Venus to your advantage along with two powerful activations that will help you to clear your energy field with the help of powerful goddesses.
My soul blueprint readings have been reduced by $100 for the time being. I want those who cannot work with me ongoing to have a roadmap for the coming year.
And, I will be giving another New Moon Activation on Tuesday, April 21st at 5:00 PDT. We are building toward a powerful Solar Eclipse on Sunday, June 21st at 0 degrees of Cancer. more on that later…
This week, as we make this transition into fiery, impatient, sometimes restless Aries, let’s also practice greater intentions in kind heartedness.
With great love and affection,
