In general a Solar eclipse is an amped-up new Moon – a new beginning that has ramifications for the next 19 years. This Aquarian eclipse can be thought of as a conclusion to – or answer to – the Leo […]
“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 – Feb. 18, 2018
Today the Moon in Aries could represent a new emotional beginning. The eclipse represented (among other things) a breakthrough; reaching a tipping point where something registers that previously did not. Of course this always occurs on global. political, and personal levels simultaneously. The general themes are consistent. Mercury moved into the last sign of the Zodiac (Pisces) yesterday and the Sun joins him today. The is the beginning of the end. Whatever storyline began in March of 2017 (and during the period surrounding the August 2017 Great American Eclipse) is over. A wash-out phase takes hold. "Debris" that prevented us from seeing the essential nature of our situation is washed away. The coast is cleared for a new beginning that looks like some serious undermining of the status quo. Jupiter in Scorpio (Pisces current ruler) facilitates profound transformation and changed perspectives. Persecution in some form is highlighted. Momentum in the usual direction dies. Some serious backlash is a possibility.

THE PROFESSIONAL ASTROLOGER
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.
