(Mosaic Art – Teresa Seaton) Mercury has been moving in direct motion since Sunday. After three and a half weeks in retrograde motion – and as a result of some back-tracking and a deeper look – your perspective may have […] 

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” -Alexander Solzhenitsyn


Comments On Current Planetary Positions – April 19, 2018

Today the main event is the Sun's move into the sign of Taurus. For earth signs specifically (Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo) life feels easier and more supported for the next month. But for all of us there is an easier way that becomes more apparent. Taurus is a settled, stabilizing influence. She's artistic with especially acute sense-awareness. The sense of taste, touch, hearing, sight and smell are highly developed in Taurus. Her ability to savor and appreciate is legend. Her ability to recognize and create "simple beauty" is unsurpassed. When life seems very complicated and chaotic Taurus is the antidote. How this transition of the Sun affects you depends on what house in your natal chart is "ruled" by the sign of Taurus. Wherever that is chances are you will feel a little more relaxed, a little more in tune with your physical needs, appreciating food, nature, art, beauty and comfort more. The Taurus "season" can be the perfect time to down-shift into a lower gear, to slow down, re-fuel, relax, and remember what's most important to you.

"Ignoring their mother's call, a group of ducklings attempts to climb a very steep mountain. Realizing their folly they retrace their steps to find an easier route to the top. " Trying something new, not so much to arrive at a goal as to discover one's own capabilities (youthful overestimation of abilities; must scale back their ambitions or fall back on other people's help); Taking the first tentative steps in any big undertaking; taking bold steps vs. taking baby steps or backpedalling; rejecting society's taboos and pursuing adventures that are "out of bounds" (strange adventures; novel, individualizing perspectives); self-discovery - thinking about what one has learned from one's experience - about who one is and what one believes; steadily pursuing one's goals vs. suspecting that the dream of life will always return to square one; retaining childhoods innocence vs. straying from the path and finding oneself in some odd no-man's land.


The practice of astrology by nature defies definition. I've tried to encapsulate, in simplified, mathematical form, what it is that happens during a reading, but much of it, I have to admit, I don't completely understand. Having become well-versed in various astrological techniques - identifying relevant cycles, interpreting symbolism, prediction, solar arcs, secondary progressions, solar returns, as well as life purpose signatures - in the final analysis there is something more. The mixture of my energy, the energy of the chart, and your own energy, at some point, seems to create a type of magic that transcends the calculations - but the calculations are important. They provide the key that unlocks the door to something greater. To progress along your path, with greater insight and understanding, what is required of you is a degree of relaxation, trust, and openness to the possibility that the reading will provide you with the exact information you need, at the exact right moment in time.
