Down to the last drop.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 52
December 24 - December 30, 2017

The difference from last week to this week is enormous.  First off, Merry Christmas!  Second, after the Winter Solstice last week, we are in a period where light is returning to our world.  Unlike Summer and Autumn when light is decreasing day-by-day, Winter and Spring bring the light!

That means we see more!  This also means that we can receive more!  But, the catch is that we need to first see what it is that we are dealing with, specifically our self-made bondages.

When we aren’t geared toward this, we are impelled materialistic, ambitious and vulnerable to illusion this week.  Now, being materialistic is just another world for being stuck in a physical mentality, meaning all we care about is what we see (i.e., on instagram, in the news, on the street, in reviews, the charts, etc.) and not what is actually there.  We are robbed of getting the last drop.

What is the last drop?  It’s savoring everything that is there and appreciating life down to the last drop.  Often we just throw things out when we deem them useless.  Maybe we enjoy the first bite, sip, try or first step, but toward the end, we blow out and give up.  There is a secret power of prosperity to be enjoyed in the last drop, crumb, pixel, bite, title, sound, word, etc.

Have you ever ended something on a bitter note?  Or, eaten a delicious orange to only have the last bite spoil the entire experience?  Whenever we don’t enjoy something to the final stage, we basically broadcast to the universe that we are ungrateful and this in turn lets the universe know that we will not be needing more.

That’s okay for things we don’t like, but what about the things we really do like?  This is often how luck only finds us once.  The appreciations and gratitude for what is, to the last drop is what is needed for us to attract more of the same, or more of something else, whatever that is in our own personal reality.

If you read my Saturn enters Capricorn article from last week, you will have an idea of what we are facing for the next 3 years.  We are aimed at getting our “Mind Over Matter” and not to add matter over our mind.

We need to remember that we do not see reality for what it really is, and that we should be open to receive more than what we see.  Our human eye is incapable of seeing things as they are and when we depend too much on our physical sense of sight we become materialistic.  When we are materialistic, we are in a state of doom and gloom, unable to welcome all the light that is starting to come in.

We may feel like we are juggling many responsibilities this week, but we need to get to a point where we allow things to just happen without micromanaging.  We too often obsess with what’s wrong, making problems out of challenges where we should really be making challenges out of problems.

Let’s enjoy the challenges down to the last drop, and enjoy the bright light.
 

 

This week:

  1. Sunday: Welcome the newfound light into our world.

  2. Monday: Merry Christmas! There is massive creativity today. Even though it’s “holiday”, there is a lot of creative energy and bright light inspiring us at every turn. Get ready for some Christmas Miracles!

  3. Tuesday: Today we are taking our inspiration and imagination and putting into action! Do something creative, otherwise we might fantasize!

  4. Wednesday: We might be having thoughts from out of the blue, but we can balance logic and imagination by surrendering anything that isn’t making sense. Just let them run out.

  5. Thursday: We need to control our time today. Taking care of others comes before juggling the chaos of life, in fact ignoring others will only fuel the chaos.

  6. Friday: There is a lot of temptation in the air today. It’s very likely that we will be seduced into some form of selfish activity if we don’t remember that we are addicted to illusions. Yin issues want to be resolved and brought into the light. I’m putting a red light on mother issues today.

  7. Saturday: Welcome the changes. Establish boundaries and don’t give too much.

Give time to have time.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 51, 2017
December 17 - December 23

This week everyone is feeling a bit indulgent and expansive.  If you feel like you’re being overstretched, just breathe through it!  Do whatever it takes to get your body in “holiday mode”, otherwise you might burn out!

We need to be careful that we don’t go too far in the other direction either.  Meaning, that we become too easy going and happy-go-lucky this week.  We are asked this week to find the balance between hot and cold, free time and work, yin and yang.  This is so important as it has to do with time management, which is something many of us freak out about.

It seems that there is never enough time in the day to get it all finished, but until we are operating outside of time and space, we can only have time if we give time.

This is an interesting concept which we are challenged to understand this week.  Giving time could mean anything from listening to another person, even if it’s not interesting, to letting a stranger cut in front of us in line.  In our western world, we are so intense about saving our time by traveling the shortest path from A to B that we end up going in circles, thinking we are making progress.

Things may not always go to plan, but we need to stay aware of the fact that we are once again requested to remain open to the good things that our outside of our awareness.  Obviously this would fall outside of the scope of our “plan”.  We so often shut things out because we think they are a “distraction”, but this week we are asked to consider our own “plans” to be a distraction if something new is popping up.

Consideration costs nothing.

Consideration is a way we give time.  Anytime we focus on something outside of our “little world”, we are donating time, and thereby space and energy.  This will come back to us as time will be bestowed unto us.

To make this very clear, when we are rushing around trying to desperately stick to our agenda, sometimes we barely make it, or oftentimes we miss the mark.  We remove ourselves from the perfect flow of “being in the right place, at the right moment”.  But, when we give time to others, or give time to our inner values and priorities, not of the material pressures but to the vows, we will be granted the endurance and time to shift the hands of time in our favor.

Until we can accomplish this, time will not be on our side, but this week, we can be open and invite this understanding into our life by welcoming consideration.

Thank you for giving the time to read this, may it come back to you a million times.

 

This week:

  1. Sunday: Party mode! Just don’t overindulge in whatever is going on before your eyes.
  2. Monday: New Moon! It’s a day of abundance, and receiving all the blessings and miracles you’ll need for the year!  This is a powerful New Moon!  Meditate to draw down energy that is going to expand your vessel.
  3. Tuesday: We are getting old things done masterfully, the weight is being lifted off your shoulders.
  4. Wednesday: Saturn enters Capricorn, new worlds are forming.
  5. Thursday: Sun Enters Capricorn conjunct Saturn - OMG it’s like a laser beam of light is hitting the earth. Grab your sunglasses, we will see a new dawn. What will you manifest?
  6. Friday: Ready to give up old burdens and start celebrating your love? There is a flow of new wind incoming, set your sails for higher planes of love, freedom and overall energy!
  7. Saturday: Mercury goes direct today! Time to publish those drafts and move forward with those negotiations on Monday!

Rekindling the Light.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 50
December 10 - December 16, 2017

This week:

  1. Sunday: Remember that negativity is a distraction.
  2. Monday: Self-reflect when you “see” something that is “judged worthy”.
  3. Tuesday: We want to break down the old and decayed ways of life.
  4. Wednesday: Resist the urge to just dumping all your stuff all over the place.
  5. Thursday: True sharing is receiving and don’t get it mixed up otherwise.
  6. Friday: If you’re feeling overwhelmed don’t do anything hasty.
  7. Saturday: Avoid self-congratulation, be humble.

Hey Stargazers!

Last week was a vat of karma pouring into our reality.  We made it!  Now, we are gearing on toward the end of the year.  I am going to suggest picking up a set of the new essential keys from dharmaceuticals which will give you private insight for your 2018!  On New Year’s Day, throw these cards into a bag and “randomly” pick one.  This phrase will be your personal focus for 2018, and it is even attributed to a personal blend for you too.

Sunday

Today is packed with more potential and it’s the second Sunday of Advent, which means we are bringing more and more light into the world.  Our attitude this week needs to be one of projecting out optimal potential.  Whatever we want to accomplish, we need to be willing to go through the trials and tribulations and come out on top.  Wherever our aim is, we will be tested, today and the rest of the week.  We see our goal, are we willing to receive the energy to get there?  Or will we be distracted and discouraged?  Remember, negativity is a distraction too.

Monday

Be careful of seeking balance where it is undue.  What does this mean?  Well, many times we judge others and disguise it as balancing an “unfair” situation.  We are in no position to judge another.  So my advice today is to self-reflect when you “see” something that is “judged worthy”.

Tuesday

For the next month in a half, we will be dealing with an energy that brings up things from the past.  The good news is that we will have the power to break whatever arises back down into nothingness.  We could be dreaming of the deceased or even run into old lovers, god forbid.  This will be a time in which we can atone for past sexual misdeeds, as we have seen when Jupiter entered Scorpio and the Hollywood Sex Scandals were highlighted in the media (I guess The Vatican and Universities across the country deserved to be put on the back burner?….for now).  There is a sexual healing that can occur, almost like a fuel of magic we can access, but only if we break down the old cobwebs and really look at the dark, manipulative sorcery we have conjured to get our way. 😱  Remember, when we misuse sex, we deplete our chi - but don’t worry, we have 45 days to work it out.  Today is the first day of Hanukkah, which is a holiday of miracles.  I think we know what to focus on after reading this, let’s rekindle that light!

Wednesday

Backup your data, Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius.  This can make us prone to getting lost with all the shifting streets and neighborhoods.  Be patient with yourself, others and your devices.  Resist the urge to just dumping all your stuff all over the place, someone will have to clean up the mess, even if it isn’t you.

Thursday

Sharing is caring and that’s the word today.  If you need a good idea or some inspiration, aim your focus towards how you can share with others.  Give what you have in excess.  Heart and Mind are in unison today, and they want to share, but please, do not share to the point of depletion.  The goal isn’t to just share and feel better, although that is a perk of sharing, it’s not our purpose.  True sharing is receiving and don’t get it mixed up otherwise you're a martyr.

Friday

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your ideas and desires, don’t do anything hasty.  We all have a lot to do and want to get it done, but there is a method to the madness.  So, if we feel like we are holding onto too many projects in incubation and want to throw them out, just wait it out.  We need to use this energy to adapt to what is called of us, not to burn it out like a firework.  We want to fuel the fire and contain it and not get burned.

Saturday

Saturday is the accumulation of the week.  We are feeling centered and are synthesizing all our efforts to keep everything under control.  Try to rebel against the propensity to pat yourself on the back, and if anything, celebrate the support you receive from the cosmos - which is as particular to you as the degree you receive it!  Remember, our task is to overcome the effects of the stars so that we can use them to our benefit.

The Power of Eleven.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 49
December 3 - December 9, 2017

This week, use the power of eleven to make something useful, and:

  1. Sunday: Dissolve your fears about sharing what you have.
  2. Monday: See where fear is preventing you from life.
  3. Tuesday: Be brave, and go forth with your passions!
  4. Wednesday: See the tree in the seed and the seed in the tree
  5. Thursday: Feel good activities are recommended, but don’t forget about your spiritual work.
  6. Friday: Slow down, and see what you are really feeling.
  7. Saturday: Be careful of punishment and revenge seeking.

Hey Stargazers!

For astrological purposes, this week has a huge focus on the number eleven which means that we need to be aware of legal dealings, tests and should be on our toes to make decisions.  Eleven wants us to manifest something practical and harmonious.  Let’s jump right in.

Sunday

Sunday is packed with energy! First off, we have many planets making serious aspects from the 11th degree of the sign they are hosting.  Eleven is the first Master Number, and is the Mastery of Heaven.  So what does this mean?  That we need to first have Heaven, before we can have Earth.  Specifically, we are expanding our capacity to take care of others with what we have in excess.  But, we need to be careful of feeling victimized, or that we will lose or be beaten up.  We could fantasize that we are putting ourselves in danger by helping others, but we can be brave especially because today is the Full Moon in 11 degrees Gemini, which wants to help us dissolve our fears.

Monday

Today, we still feel the Full Moon from Sunday.  We are really facing our fears and what keeps us up at night.  What is your greatest fear?  What rule does it have over your life?  We need to remember that there is no pause from self-improvement and healing - it is an ongoing process.

Tuesday

Continuing from last week: as we come to terms and begin to accept our passions, we are begin to see the challenges that come with anything “new”.  What this all means is that we are at a point where we need to instantaneously surrender fear as it arises, otherwise we will not pioneer.  There is an opposing force between what we envision and what we put to rest.  If we are not proactive with this, we will run into some outer opposition.  We see what is required of us, and we can warm up any cold feet!  Be brave, and go forth with your passions!

Wednesday

We are having another replay from last week here, with Mercury in retrograde.  We need to be careful of hoarding onto energy, time, ideas, thoughts and projections.  We need to consciously choose now: what can we handle or what do we need to delegate or potentially release.  Taking on too much will block our creativity and block our root and crown chakra.  The Omega and the Alpha are in one place, and time is compressed.  It is in this day that we can see the tree in the seed and the seed in the tree so that we can project optimal potential.

Thursday

Building upon the energy from last Thursday, and looking at where we stand.  We are generous with our love, compassion, and reaching out to help others.  There is a secret in this: when we help others we are really only helping ourselves because we are all one.  As much as we want to help others, without hidden agenda, the universe will send people to help us.  New opportunities are abound and good karma is being activated.  Feel good activities are recommended, but don’t forget about your spiritual work.  Be careful of being co-dependent, mostly don’t confuse it for helping others or compassion.  I know, this is a lifelong process, but you will get the discrimination at some point!  Practice, practice, practice!  More to come as this transit will last until Jan. 20th, 2018.

Friday

Today, we will only really know how we are feeling if we slow down.  After that, we will be able to build and refine ourselves from what we have emotionally accumulated.  If we cannot see through our emotional hoarding, we will be illusioned, down the detail, create fantasies.  There are major mother and grandmother themes coming up that have been left unresolved.  The downside of all this is that we could just feel things impulsively without questioning why or where it is coming from and what you need to do to resolve it within.

Saturday

Saturday is the accumulation of the week.  This was an intense week with that started with teh power of 11.  Energies that use the 11 degree must be manifested, otherwise , otherwise we could become nervous about missed opportunities.  We all need some Merry Christmas Blend to not forget the true purpose of Christmas and activate Christ consciousness!  We will need as much help as we can get, today begins a transit where we are using our energy sexually, manipulatively, or even protectively.  Be careful of punishment and revenge seeking.  We can use this energy to really bring an end to whatever holds us back.

Week 48, 2017

Moving Quickly.

Weekly Astrology Program, Week 48
November 26 - December 2, 2017

This week!

  1. Sunday: Everything is fast right now, take time to direct your energy.
  2. Monday: We can only have inspiration when we have let go of fantasy.
  3. Tuesday: Be brave and go forth with your passions!
  4. Wednesday: Consciously choose what can we handle, delegate or release.
  5. Thursday: Assist others, and activate good karma!
  6. Friday: Allow things to grow. Abandon urgency!
  7. Saturday: Share in a new way.

Hey Stargazers!

Sunday

Things may be moving quickly.  Time is just flying by, as it always does this time of year.  We need to look at how we are spending our energy and where we want to direct it.  There is a lot of energy to get things manifesting, but with all this speed, we could miss some vital details.  Warning: We are prone to overeat, watch those hips!

Monday

Emotional hoarding is the theme today.  There may be a misled notion that we need to break free from something that is “holding us back”, and this just isn’t the case.  There is a tendency to fantasize or believe in our imagination, even over reality because we think what we feel is truth.  This can get us into big trouble.  We can activate clarity, and look within to find the inspiration we need to share what we have.

Tuesday

As we find peace with our passions, meaning we accept what they are and allow ourselves to embark on them, we are beginning to see the challenges of the new.  What this all means is that we are at a point where we need to instantaneously surrender fear as it arises, otherwise we will not pioneer.  There is an opposing force between what we envision and what we put to rest.  If we are not proactive with this, we will run into some outer opposition.  We see what is required of us, and we can warm up any cold feet!  Be brave, and go forth with your passions!

Wednesday

It is a cosmic law that we need to let go of energy in order to bring new in.  We need to be careful of hoarding onto energy, time, ideas, thoughts and projections.  We need to consciously choose now: what can we handle or what do we need to delegate or potentially release.  Taking on too much will block our creativity and block our root and crown chakra.  The Omega and the Alpha are in one place, and time is compressed.  It is in this day that we can see the tree in the seed and the seed in the tree so that we can project optimal potential.

Thursday

A new energy is introduced.  We are generous with our love, compassion, and reaching out to help others.  There is a secret in this: when we help others we are really only helping ourselves because we are all one.  As much as we want to help others, without hidden agenda, the universe will send people to help us.  New opportunities are abound and good karma is being activated.  Feel good activities are recommended.  Be careful of being co-dependent, mostly don’t confuse it for helping others or compassion.  I know, this is a lifelong process, but you will get the discrimination at some point!  Practice, practice, practice!  More to come as this transit will last until Jan. 20th, 2018.

Friday

IT’S THE FIRST OF DECEMBER!  OMG, before we know it it will be 2018!  Today also marshals a new energy of light, harmony and creativity.  With this also comes the need for instant gratification.  We want all our desires to be instantly fulfilled.  We need to learn, that things need to grow and that when things do not happen on our time that things are actually in harmony.  So we shouldn’t be hasty and addicted to urgency.  Living a life in urgency is not good for the bladder meridian, patience nor the beautification of y/our world.

Saturday

Saturday is the accumulation of the week.  The holiday season has officially begun, and we all need some Merry Christmas Blend to not forget the true purpose of Christmas and activate Christ consciousness!  The message today is to really share with another, someone intimate, someone you love, and do it in a new way that is beyond your normal routine.  Doing this will put a big lock onto the ego!  We also have some more of the energy from Wednesday reinforced.  The emphasis is to let go of some old patterns and make room for the new energy of light.  It will be great!
