I’m becoming a bit of a fan of denial. God knows, all the worrying and obsessing and hairsplitting I’ve done in the past half-century hasn’t made me or the world one jot better or happier. During this Pisces season I find myself wondering: Will the world really come to a screeching halt if I pay the power bill a day late, ignore current events, or neglect my Facebook page for a week?
Leo is the sign that symbolizes our connection with the Source, whether you imagine it as God or physics or something else entirely. For our purposes, you may simply imagine it as a huge battery that generates more than enough energy and inspiration for everyone. In our Leo/Solar selves, we develop creative ways to connect to that loving, powerful source….
There comes a moment when it’s time to let go of things. But how do you know when enough is enough? I suppose it’s when you realize that something consistently takes more from you than it gives back….
Sometimes we’re fortunate enough to encounter luminescent, warm-hearted, Buddha-like souls in real life, and it’s as healing as a comfortable nap in front of a roaring fire. Interestingly, these are never people whom life has spared from difficulty and fear.

My teacher used to say that having a bunch of planets together in the same sign or house is sort of like having a nursery full of screaming babies and only one set of hands. In technical terms, this bunch of hollering astro-infants is called a stellium, and beloved author Donna Cunningham has written a book about them.
Retrograde motion is a matter of perspective. That is, the planet isn’t moving backward, it just looks that way to us. Nothing is “wrong” with a retrograde planet; it’s your way of looking at the matters related to the planet that may be askew.
Mars and Pluto may glower, but the secret weapon at the dawn of 2014 is silent, shimmering Venus moving retrograde through Capricorn. Accordingly, my plan of action is this: Instead of hollering at myself for my failures, I’m going to experiment with a more flirtatious approach….
At winter time, the artificial constructs of time decree a new year is about to begin. But our seasonal hearts experience winter differently, as the apex of an energetic cycle begun in the spring. In the cold, weak light of winter, November’s incantations are realized, and all is revealed for what it truly is. Winter solstice is a time of emotional reckoning and self-examination; like Scrooge, each of us must confront his or her own ghosts of the past, present, and future…
Love is not just a feeling, but a verb. It’s something we do, a bit of spiritual theater we enact through actions large and small. And listening even when we don’t feel like it is a small but powerful act of love…
