Mercury Retrograde Oct 21 - Nov 10, 2013
Venus Retrograde Dec 21, 2013 - Jan 31, 2014

October 16, 2013

The next several weeks will be very intense as the planetary energies are basically trying to shake out the blocks that have been holding us back. There is a Lunar Full Moon Eclipse October 18th in the sign Aries that could suddenly bring emotional matters to a head and perhaps to a conclusion. Lunar Eclipses can effect you for a couple of months if it directly impacts your horoscope. Communication Mercury will retrograde October 21st that can give misunderstandings but is good for re-editing, rethinking and resolving matters. Liberating Uranus will square again transformational Pluto exact on November 1st, triggering rebellions and breakthroughs, which explains partly why the US Gov’t had been in a stalemate and there will be a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3rd that will align with reality Saturn that will also help us let go of those energies that have out lived their purposes over the coming months.

Saturn and the North Node aka Rahu in Vedic astrology align in the same sign approximately every 9 years. Saturn restricts and the N Node exaggerates creating a cycle of chaos and major changes. Looking back over the past 200 years this alignment corresponds with war, severe weather, earthquakes and tragedies but in the extreme. Saturn and N Node aligned in Gemini in 2002 until April 2003. Those were the years that the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars began. Mars is the planet of war, impulsiveness and anger and Mars was in a stress aspect to Saturn and N Node in March 2003 when the Iraq War erupted without any benefic trines from Jupiter to find another solution. Saturn and N Node are currently aligning in Scorpio from October 2012 through February 2014. Mars was triggering Saturn/N Node mid March through May 2013 without the protection of Jupiter and those months saw great turmoils, especially with the tragedy in Newtown, CT.

August 27, 2013 Mars enters Leo until October 15th forming a harsh aspect onto the current Saturn/N Node in Scorpio, which is why just this week the world is fearing another outbreak of war against Syria but also the violence in Egypt continues. Fortunately Jupiter that rules luck and wisdom is throwing its benefic influence onto Saturn/N Node and then on September 11th diplomatic Venus enters Scorpio until Oct 7th helping further to calm the tensions and trying to give more peaceful resolutions. I do think the world is fearing the worse case scenarios and we may come up to the edge of the cliff but fortunately Venus and Jupiter will be reducing the anger seeking more compromises and pulling us back from the brink of all out war. There could also be severe weather or earthquakes in September but the benefic protection will keep whatever from being a bad as it could have been.

Please listen to my September video forecasts to learn how these significant energies affect each zodiac sign.

July 3, 2013

We are entering a more favorable planetary period with expansive Jupiter now in Cancer in a positive trine aspect to business Saturn that will last through July 2014. Most world economies should begin a better cycle as already seen in the US with the big gains in the stock market along with the real estate market finally coming back after the collapse in 2008. Saturn has been retrograde since February but going direct July 7, 2013, that will open the flow of business and especially after Mercury turns direct July 20th. Please check out my July video forecasts for more detailed information.

Jupiter in Cancer influence to the each Sun sign and rising sign from June 25, 2013 until July 16, 2014:

Aries: support from family, real estate growth; Taurus: good for travel, sales, communications; Gemini: income opportunities; Cancer: expands visibility and confidence; Leo: healing retreats, research & development; Virgo: friends and associates give support to goals; Libra: career expands; Scorpio: good for travel, education and media; Sagittarius: expands credit and business contracts; Capricorn: good for relationships and contracts; Aquarius: better health habits, work increases; Pisces: more opportunities for romance, creativity and children.

The intensity of the past several months is calming down and especially after the new moon on June 8th. Expansive Jupiter has been in conflict with Saturn’s structures that had been hurting the world economies and making it seem as if we had to put in extra efforts to gain the same results. But that ends when Jupiter enters Cancer June 25th supporting Saturn in Scorpio over the next 12 months. Vedic astrology uses the true sidereal zodiac and Jupiter there has changed signs yesterday and already began to support positively Saturn’s lesson. I speak about in my June video forecasts how we are individually and collectively turning a corner with a brighter future then it has been over these recent years. Each individual horoscope will respond differently, of course, but overall the trends are creating more opportunities for most of us and for most businesses.

May 2, 2013

There are Lunar Eclipses April 25th and May 24th that if it triggers any important points in your horoscope will give endings, releasing and letting go of old habits or attachments. Solar Eclipse May 9th in Taurus indicates necessary changes to open the space to bring in new opportunities. If the Eclipse affects you directly it will be your personal fears of change that bring any distress and not the Solar Eclipse that only wants to provide the opening for new beginnings.

I was interviewed yesterday on an Internet show. You can watch the video of the show and I am on the last 25 minutes. But I think you will enjoy the entire show.

Expansive Jupiter turns direct today in the sign of Gemini. Jupiter is the planet of growth, abundance, knowledge, optimism and travel. Jupiter had been retrograde since early October 2012 that was delaying or limiting the promises of Jupiter but now that Jupiter has turned direct we can expect more opportunities and growth in the area occupied by Jupiter. I speak about Jupiter and its affect on all 12 Sun signs and rising signs in my February video forecasts. Communication Mercury turns retrograde February 23 through March 17 causing Mercury to hang out in the sign of Pisces from February 5 through April 13 plus assertive, ambitious Mars will also be transiting Pisces heating up our minds with Mars in Pisces February 1 through March 12. Mars and Mercury aligning is good for asserting our ideas and giving quick and sharp minds, but when Mercury turns retrograde and because of Mars we might experience more irritability, rash decisions, accidents and arguments especially those few days around Feb 23 when Mercury turns retrograde. But on February 25 peace making Venus also enters Pisces joining Mercury, Mars and the Sun helping to find more balance and fairness that will be needed after many may be stressed out initially around the 23rd.

My 2013 video forecasts were filmed in Bali, Indonesia this past October. The Western forecasts that most of you are familiar from this website were filmed with the ocean in the background but my Vedic forecasts were filmed by the rice fields. So I invite you to check out my Vedic forecasts if only to see more of the beauty of Bali. Please note the Vedic signs are usually one sign prior to the Western signs but you might want to go on on-line to find out your Vedic Moon and rising signs to know which forecast to watch.

As I am writing this to be posted on Dec 21st I know that the world is not coming to an end. The Mayan Calendar was only foretelling the end of a major cycle and the beginning of another. And don’t forget that we are leaving the approximate 2100 year old cycle of Pisces and slowly beginning the Age of Aquarius. Aquarius is the sign of technology and a global community whereas Pisces is the symbol of two fish tied together but trying to swim in opposite directions. It is obvious to me that the Age of Pisces had indicated how we are all connected on this planet but trying to separate ourselves from each other, whereas the unfolding Aquarius Age is seen with the birth of the Internet connecting the world, breaking down borders and promoting more equality and democracy for all. Thus the change in astrological ages and the Mayan Calendar are indicating the dawn of a new world consciousness pulling us more towards unity and protecting our planet and the letting go of our old consciousness of fear and separation.

With that stated, 2013 will be a year of good economic news but also more severe weather disturbances including earthquakes along with the potential for major conflicts and war. The good news will begin in June 2013 when protective Jupiter enters the water sign Cancer in positive support to responsible Saturn in the water sign of Scorpio that will begin an upswing in most world economies. The Jupiter Saturn cycle good for the world economies runs from June 2013 through June 2014. The earth changes, severe weather and war are indicated by harsh Saturn transiting with the karmic North Node in the same sign as it does about every 10 years but further intensified this time around with the continued Uranus Pluto square occurring between 2012 and 2015. I speak of these trends on my 2013 video forecasts but this year I have included the transcripts on my website that you can download.

November 1, 2012

The planetary energies in November will be very disruptive, unstable and unpredictable because of two eclipses and with Mercury retrograde. The US Presidential Election on November 6th coincides with Mercury turning retrograde but in stress with confusing, deceptive Neptune, so expect the unexpected. There will be a Scorpio Solar Eclipse November 13th and a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse November 28th. It would be best not to make any important decisions, start new projects and make any promises during November because the eclipses especially with Mercury retrograde gives very unstable energies and therefore not a good idea to give birth to any idea or project in the mist of such unpredictability. Please watch my November video forecasts for more detailed information.

Sept 28, 2012

Saturn enters Scorpio October 5, 2012 through 2015. Saturn has been in Libra the previous 2 1/2 years with general Libra themes highlighted regarding marriage, relationships and contracts all of which would have ended or tested and made stronger. Saturn represents responsibilities, hard work, reality, maturity, and separations. Saturn will bring these themes to the sign Scorpio, that represents major changes, finances, insurance, taxes, death and transformations. As I mentioned on my October forecasts, Saturn often takes awhile before we recognize how it will effect us individually but not this time because on Oct 5th when Saturn enters Scorpio so does Mercury. Mercury rules our mind and therefore our thoughts will be gripped with the important lessons of Saturn on day one as we either choose to be more proactive with our individual responsibilities or choose fear.

Obama versus Romney: read what I have to say about these two political figures and my thoughts on the upcoming election.

May 17, 2012

Investing in FaceBook? I am not a financial or stock market astrologer but when examining the planetary positions I would not recommend that the small investor jump in immediately.

The IPO offering begins May 18, 2012 @ 9:30 am NY, NY with the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Jupiter all in wealth-generating Taurus. However, the ruler of Taurus is Venus who weakens Taurus because it’s retrograde. Very important is that business Saturn is in a restrictive aspect to the promises of expansive Jupiter. Plus May 20th will mark another Solar Eclipse in a stressful angle to nebulous Neptune that can point to disappointments and confusions and many astrologers teach not to make important decisions the week around an eclipse.

Examining May 18, 2012 with the Vedic system of astrology, the planet of wealth, Jupiter is combust that hurts it and sandhi that weakens it and afflicted by Sun and Ketu, who gives great uncertainty. Jupiter is debilitated in the navamsha also weakening it. Therefore Jupiter is not strong enough to fulfill its promise. Venus that gives our desires is retrograde, sandhi and debilitated in the navamsha that points to a very weak Venus. Saturn is also retrograde and sandhi that also is weakening for long-term investments. The very important Moon is weak being dark because its in the sign prior to the New Moon on Sunday, which happens to be a New Moon Solar Eclipse further pointing to great uncertainty.

The Facebook people will make money obviously and probably the institutional investors as they will buy low but when they think the market is being saturated by the small investor they will sell causing many who come in late to lose money.
