2017 Astrology Forecast

Welcome to 2017! The planetary movements promise to bring strong changes to the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) stabilizing and liberating energy to the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and enlightening and spiritual wisdom to the mutual signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

This forecast is written for the sun sign alone. Knowing your own birth chart will reveal additional events that are scripted for your spiritual journey.

Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)

Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto are transiting through the cardinal signs for most of 2017. This potent combination will trigger the need to change mental patterns and unhealthy behaviors that hold you back from being truly yourself. This is a year for transformation and mental liberation. Although this planetary combination can bring about a physical death, it will most likely bring a psychological birth and inner strength. Continue reading 2017 Astrological Forecast

Remembering Louise Hay

It felt like yesterday that I recorded an astrology session profiling a decade-by- decade synopsis of Louise Hay’s life as a unique 80th birthday gift. I wrapped the recorded session in blue and green striped paper, not knowing those were her favorite colors. I arrived at the ballroom at the Four Seasons in Carlsbad, California as a guest of a friend and immediately met Louise within a minute and a magical connection was made. We posed for a quick picture and it set the tone for what was a memorable evening.

In subsequent years, she became a yearly client and gave me a wonderful personal testimony on email, that I posted on my website with her blessing. She felt comfortable with me and asked me to call her, “Lulu” instead of Louise. She was very generous and referred many of her friends to me and even provided free passes to the Hay House “I Can Do It” conference when she visited Tampa.

I recall an astrology phone session where she made me laugh. She had a good sense of humor. The years since I met her are a blur. Although it’s been a few years since I’ve seen her, it feels like yesterday that we met. As I exited her 80th birthday party, I turned and saw Louise trailing me with a few of her friends. I thanked her for the great evening and asked, “Has 80 years gone fast?” Without hesitation, she said “It’s gone too fast.”

I couldn’t agree more…thank you for influencing my life and so many others…I will see you in light one day.

Aug-Sept 2017 (Mercury Retrograde and Eclipses)

“Fasten your seatbelts, its going to be a bumpy night!” Exclaimed Bette Davis in All About Eve. The upcoming cosmic events is an understatement to that one-liner, so fasten up for a few months, there will be many bumpy nights ahead. There are many planetary events taking place currently, but the following three are especially highlighted: Mercury Retrograde, Lunar Eclipse and Total Solar Eclipse.

Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation, tends to impact the entire planet, since it affects all types of communication, electronics and travel modes. We are made of the the same essence or energy universally, so cosmic events do impact us whether we are conscious or not. Some retrogrades are more impactful if they interact or magnify another cosmic event simultaneously, such as a total solar eclipse, which, as fate would have it, will take place on August 21st. Continue reading Aug-Sept 2017 (Mercury Retrograde and Eclipses)

Mercury Retrograde (April 9, 2017 – May 3, 2017)

Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation, goes retrograde from April 9, 2017 – May 3, 2017. This can cause computer issues, traffic delays, and more importantly – misunderstandings.

This retrograde starts off in the financial sign of Taurus and ends up in the action sign of Aries. Mercury in Taurus likes to focus on one subject at a time, especially on finances and security. But when it enters the action sign of Aries on April 20th, watch out! The natural expression of Aries is “get it done now.” It feels more secure by taking action first, then learning from its errors after. This could be a field day for law enforcement with fast drivers on the road. Be aware of your speed and avoid a speeding ticket, and PLEASE be aware of texting and driving. Try and not respond impulsively to adverse situations or you’re likely to put your foot in your mouth. Continue reading Mercury Retrograde (April 9, 2017 – May 3, 2017)

Mercury Retrograde April 28, 2016 – May 22, 2016

Good news! Read all about it! Mercury goes retrograde again, but this time it’s in the sign of Taurus, the essence of financial and material security. Mercury normally affects travel plans, electronics, and all forms of communication, but when it’s in retrograde, things change! Change is neither bad nor good but constant. While Mercury retrograde is known to cause havoc, especially in the computer world, its erratic movement doesn’t have to have an adverse effect. In fact, it can be a blessing in disguise, since checks and balances are necessary in life.

Many years ago, a friend located an awesome New York apartment he wanted to rent. After filling out the application and leaving a deposit, he was notified the next day that there was a problem with his credit report. There was a “lien” from a creditor that he wasn’t aware of. After researching and rectifying the issue a couple of weeks later, he obtained a letter from the creditor, provided it to the rental agent and was granted the apartment. Retrogrades tend to unearth and uncover. While the credit issue delayed his moving process, it revealed a hidden issue that would have further damaged his credit.

Full Moon Eclipse 3/23/2016

The full moon is also an indication of a change in life. This can trigger a change in your domestic environment or a change in your family dynamics. This cycle can also prompt you to declutter or reassess your possessions. This can also be an emotional time since the moon represents our emotions, and full moon cycles tend to make us more sensitive to reactions. The full moon is on March 23, and it’s further heightened because it’s also a lunar eclipse, so those born March 21 – 25, will be affected from September 2015 – September 2016.

Celebrities and Public Figures influenced by a planetary transit or a lunar cycle in 2016 are: Lady Gaga, Zach Braff, Russell Crowe, Patricia Arquette, John Madden, David Letterman, Shannon Doherty, David Cassidy, Kourtney Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Nora Jones, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Celebrity Pisces

Those born from Feb 20th – Feb 24th will be affected on a wider scale from August 2015 – August 2016.

His purpose written in the stars

SUN BAY SOUTH- In a past life, Martin Montes says he was a scribe for an astrologer in ancient Egypt.

Initially, he was stunned when a psychic informed him of that at a party in New York City. But it made total sense. It explained how Montes knew the symbols of astrology before learning them. It explained his deep fascination with the solar system. And why he had chosen to be a spiritual astrologer in this lifetime.

“Where the planets were positioned at the time of your birth triggers events in your life,” says Montes, 37, with a hint of his native New York accent. “I basically show people what their purpose is in life.” Continue reading His purpose written in the stars
