The Perseids are here! You can see them in your backyard, but it is worth a drive to the country in order to see them better.  
THE PERSEID METEOR SHOWER IS BEGINNING: This week, Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower. Specks of dusty debris hitting the top of Earth’s atmosphere faster than 110,000 mph are burning up in the night sky, producing a spray of shooting stars from the constellation Perseus. Meteor rates are relatively low now, but they will increase sharply in the nights ahead. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Aug. 11-13 with perhaps dozens of meteors per hour visible in bright moonlight. Visit www.spaceweather.com
for observing tips and sky maps.

August 2017  The most important month of the year?

As the total solar eclipse passes over the United States, don’t be left in the dark.  Don’t let your opportunities be eclipsed.

Many astrologers think that August is the most important month of the year, bringing new beginnings, endings and major changes.  There are several huge planetary happenings this month.  We can use this planetary energy to our good, doing what we know will benefit ourselves and others.  Be sure and read to the end to see the ending on a good note.

The lunar eclipse on August 7, 2017 brings with it lots of emotions for about a week before and a week after.  Some of us will feel like we’re not being recognized, noticed or heard.  It a good time to remember that old adage of “Don’t have any important conversations when you are hungry, angry, lonely or tired.”  It’s easy to remember if you remember that the first letters of those words spell out the word “HALT.” In astrology, we can use any planetary energy to our good, but challenging planetary configurations can cause us problems if we are not consciously making good choices and using the extra energy to create what we want in life.  We need to guard against anger and negativity.  We and others around us may have intense feelings and should remember to not let any situation intensify.

The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 will have a huge impact on our country, Trump and us, depending upon our individual birth charts.  Since it is in the sign of Leo, the sign that corresponds with love, creativity and generosity, we can transform our world for the better if we are loving, creative and generous.  We are given opportunities to be loving and the choices we make will be karmic in nature.  We will reap what we sow.  Solar eclipses bring endings and new beginnings.

Much has been written about Trump and how the eclipse will hit his chart.  Since the eclipse is conjunct Regulus, the star associated with kings, astrologers say it is often an omen for the fall of kings or leaders.  The eclipse is also conjunct Trump’s Ascendant and Mars.  .An interesting sidelight is that Netanyahu has his Mars in the same degree of the zodiac as Trump does.  Mars is aggressive, warlike, full of strife, and feels the need to defend himself.  For more information about how Astrologers are freaking out about the eclipse and Trump, go to the post below.  Jupiter enlarges whatever it touches, and it also corresponds with beliefs and religion.  Pluto is the planet of intensity, explosions, mass destruction, bombs, atomic energy, earth changes and catastrophes.  These planets also have other, positive meanings, but during a square aspect it is easier to manifest the negative side of them.  Jupiter does symbolize expansion and growth and Pluto does symbolize transformation and rebirth, so out of the remains of the volcanic explosion can come new life and new growth.  Hurts from the past can be brought into the light and can be transmuted into beautiful new growth.  Pluto helps us get rid of what we no longer need, be it clutter, people or outdated ways of thinking or being.  What do we need to eliminate in our lives?

The signs Jupiter and Pluto are in have correspondences to our relationships and careers, so we will have the ability to make positive changes in these areas.  We can learn to balance these areas of our lives.  We can decide what we want, how to get there and then take action to create the kind of lives we want.

Five planets, including Mercury, will be retrograde this month.  We may feel as if we are waiting on other people or other things to move forward.  We have to keep working, but at times it may feel that we are moving slowly through mud.  For more information about how Mercury Retrograde can have an impact upon your health, transportation, communication and machines, go to http://diannelawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.  Since Mercury is in its own sign, Virgo, the effects of it being retrograde will be enhanced.

Ending on a good note, both Saturn and Uranus will be in a positive, fortunate trine to the Moon’s North Node.  Saturn is the planet of karma, hard work and career and Uranus is the planet of change, humanitarianism and individuality.  The Moon’s Node is where the Moon crosses the apparent path of the Sun.  It show us the way to be on the right path and to be doing what we came here to do.  Since the Node is in the sign Leo, we should be consciously loving and creative.  Having these three astrological points in a very easy configuration, indicates that if we do our part, work hard, be open to change and be loving, we can be doing what we came to this planet to do.

As always, when I talk to people about their yearly chart (forecast for the next twelve months), I include explaining how planetary configurations are affecting them personally.  If you want to find out how these and many other planetary energies will be influencing you, let me know.  For more information about how a yearly chart can help you, go to http://diannelawson.com/find_us/yearly-chart/.

Astrologers are freaking out about what the upcoming eclipse means for Trump 
from Newsweek

Donald Trump’s presidency was written in the stars—at least that’s what astrologers are saying. He was born during a lunar eclipse, they point out, which makes him more susceptible to the power of eclipses. And if eclipses are monumental celestial events with real-world consequences, as astrologers believe, then the rare total solar eclipse happening in August could have major implications for Trump, especially given the growing drama around his administration.

“There’s been a lot of conversation about this eclipse in terms of what’s going on with Donald Trump,” says Wade Caves, an astrological consultant who earlier in July published a 29-page analysis of the coming eclipse. “The astrological world has been completely buzzing with this for quite some time, even more so since Donald Trump was inaugurated.”

Related: How and when to watch the total solar eclipse safely

On August 21, the solar eclipse will occur as the moon passes between Earth and the sun, casting a shadow about 70 miles wide on the U.S. Total solar eclipses happen every year and a half or so, but this is the first time since 1918 conditions will align so that the shadow will cross the entire continent, in what is called the “path of totality.” It’s also the first eclipse since 1776 whose path falls exclusively in the U.S. Small towns within the path are preparing to see their populations temporarily balloon by as much as 250 times, and as many as 7.4 million people are expected to travel to see the phenomenon. For people watching from any given spot inside the path, the eclipse will last about two minutes.

As space scientists and enthusiasts have been preparing to view the August eclipse, astrologers have been taking to the blogosphere to predict how it spells out doom. Humans have long monitored cosmic events for clues about the future, and for certain people, eclipses hold special meaning. “Solar eclipses have been interpreted as evil omens by many civilizations because the life-giving sunlight is obscured for a few minutes,” wrote space scientist Duncan Steel in his 2001 book Eclipse: The Celestial Phenomenon that Changed the Course of History. Steel pointed out that accounts of the death of Jesus Christ have depicted a so-called “Crucifixion eclipse,” and that the ancient Chinese would beat drums and shoot arrows into the sky to ward off what they believed was a dragon devouring the sun.

For modern-day practitioners of astrology, the eclipse continues to hold power. “What we’re talking about is the ability of the sun to be able to give light and life-generating heat, and all these things being momentarily taken away,” says Caves, the astrological consultant. “So there’s this symbolism that’s built in with eclipses about…things coming to a close, and in often a very dramatic fashion.”

The August eclipse is not only unique because of its rarity, astrologers claim, but also because the astrological activity associated with it happens to line up with that of the president. The eclipse is occurring in Leo, for instance, which is rising in Trump’s chart. The lion is the symbol for Leo, and thus the sign represents rulers and kings. “At the moment that he was born, certain degrees were activated. This eclipse is activating those same degrees,” Caves says about Trump. When other aspects of the eclipse are taken into account, he adds, “a lot of astrologers are expecting some kind of downfall, some kind of ruin, some kind of difficulty.”

Steel, the space scientist and author, says it is foolish for anyone to believe in such prophecies. “Way back, when people had little ability to predict when eclipses would occur apart from recognizing that there are distinct cycles, perhaps it is understandable that doom-mongering based on eclipses occurred,” he says by email. “But for people nowadays to imagine that they are portents of doom is just daft…. If people believe that the forthcoming solar eclipse ‘means’ anything for the U.S., for Trump, for the world, then they are deluded.”

Lights Out

Debra DeLeo-Moolenaar (whose surname is perfect for discussing the power of Leo) became interested in astrology thanks to a witch. In the early 1990s, she says, she had fallen gravely ill with gangrene and her first marriage was ending. She was living in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in order to turn her life around, she decided to seek the advice of Laurie Cabot, the so-called official witch of Salem.Cabot told DeLeo-Moolenaar to contact an astrologer named Karen Thorne, and so she went to see her. “She’s the one who says it all and got me going on it,” DeLeo-Moolenaar says.

In 1998, DeLeo-Moolenaar moved to London for work. By day, she was doing international tax law; in her downtime, her passion for astrology was growing. About a decade later, she began blogging about her hobby. Since then, she’s interpreted the signs to make predictions about world events such as the 2016 Brexit vote and June’s general election in the United Kingdom. (She was correct both times.) Now, the 63-year-old is retired and lives in Oxford.

To make their predictions about how heavenly bodies influence activity down on Earth, astrologers such as DeLeo-Moolenaar and Caves consult thousands of years’ worth of theory and materials. They form charts based on dates—such as August 21 for the coming eclipse and June 14 for Trump, his birthday—and sometimes compare such charts. “The closest career that’s out there is an economist,” says Caves, because they also look for patterns in the past in order to make predictions.

At least one president followed astrology, and Trump considers him an idol. Ronald Reagan is said to have scheduled important meetings, presidential debates, surgery, State of the Union addresses and his 1967 inauguration as governor of California based on astrological information. First lady Nancy Reagan was reportedly in regular contact with Joan Quigley, an astrologer who died in 2014and who had written a memoir about her experience with the White House.

When an eclipse happens, astrologers have more information to analyze, resulting in predictions beyond those in an ordinary horoscope. “It goes back to: What is an eclipse?” DeLeo-Moolenaar says. “It’s basically, from an astrological standpoint, a big burst of energy. It’s like a scattering of a shotgun shell across the chart of a nation or an individual, giving energy and power into something that’s already in play.” At this moment, she says, the U.S. is in a dramatic period, and “then this eclipse comes along” that “can be expected to spark this frustration and quite possibly set it off.” As she explains it, the moon represents the common people, and the sun represents the leader. Then the moon blocks the sun and “the lights go out.”

Presidential Penumbra

The effects of the coming eclipse could take time to show up, according to astrologers’ claims. Caves believes the impact will appear over the next two years because the eclipse will take around two hours to cross the continent (for a solar eclipse, astrologers interpret each hour as a year). The result could be “a loss of a leader in some sense,” he says, whether literal or symbolic. “It seems to me very possible that by this time next year, we’re looking at the reality of Trump not being in office.”

In February, DeLeo-Moolenaar wrote on her blog Archetypal Assets that she finds it significant how the eclipse will involve Uranus, according to astrological charts. That planet, she wrote, “disrupts everything that it touches. It is a lightning bolt from the blue. Serious change in any direction and on a major scale.” And because Uranus “will make close aspects to Mr. Trump’s natal Mars,” she wrote, “this will be a power surge—provoking a crisis of some sort. Whether for good or evil, we can’t know in advance.”

Marjorie Orr, another astrologer, pointed out last November, just four days after the election, that the August eclipse is part of what space scientists know as the Saros series, which has included eclipses in 1909, 1927, 1945, 1963, 1981 and 1999. Orr noted the major political events in those years: the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the death of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a period of unrest in Chicago that involved bombings and an attempted assassination of President William Taft. “Usually this series places strains on personal relationships, induces hasty decisions on the basis of false information and is associated with tiredness or health problems,” she wrote. “Certainly this eclipse presages violence in one form or another.”

The astrology blogger Eugene Johnson predicted in April: “This eclipse by itself does not suggest that the U.S. is in immediate peril for war, but it alerts us to be prepared for some kind of significant, perhaps shattering, event here in America.” Johnson noted that the chart for the eclipse will involve Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune. “I can safely say that this eclipse series will mark important developments on the world stage because of the high preponderance of outer planets involved,” he added.

Caves has published perhaps the most thorough analysis. He wrote that the position of the eclipse in relation to the star Al Jabhah traditionally “brings loss and danger,” and that when it involves a military officer—or president—it suggests the possibility of mutiny by soldiers.

Caves singled out certain dates that could prove significant: October 10, November 21, November 26 and December 17 through 19. It’s “possible that there will be a sudden health issue that lands on Trump’s shoulders, pulling him out of the Oval. It’s also quite reasonable to suspect ousting, either through official channels (i.e. impeachment) or a mutiny behind closed doors,” he wrote. “What we can say with reasonable assurance is that these charts, when properly considered, make it difficult to imagine Trump has smooth sailing ahead.”

In response to skepticism about their claims, DeLeo-Moolenaar says everyone is entitled to their opinions. “I happen to think it works, I happen to feel that it works. I think also that as human beings, we have both a rational side and an intuitional side, and I think the astrology speaks to this intuition, to centuries of myth that still follows us around.”

      Mercury enters its shadow today and will be retrograde August 12, 2017 through September 4, 2017.  It will then be in its shadow September 5, 2017 through September 19, 2017.  It is a time to be careful concerning health, communication, transportation and machines.  We need to go about our regular business, but be more mindful in these areas.   For more information about the Shadow of Mercury and Mercury Retrograde, to to
     Since my husband and I travel so much, we have lots of Mercury Shadow and Mercury Retrograde stories.  Here is one about our trip that we took during the last Mercury Shadow period.  Flying back from Northern California, we left Berkeley after breakfast and didn’t make it home in Topeka until 3:30 a.m. the next morning.  Delay, delay, delay, wait for new plane, go to new gate, wait, get lost, pouring-down rain storm.   It is often harder to travel under challenging Mercury times, but I have always been glad I went.  And, by the way, our next trip scheduled is when Mercury will be in its shadow.  Sometimes other things just take precedence.
     April Garrett of South Saint Paul, Minnesota wrote this about the last Mercury Retrograde:  I do have a Mercury retrograde story’.. My experience with this April 2017s Mercury retrograde has been more of slow down and miscommunication ., mainly a slow down.. On the morning of April 10th of 2017 I went to go start my vehicle that’s in top mechanical condition and to my surprise when I went to turn the key in my cars ignition it would not crank/start up.. Even though the car lights and navigation etc were working.. In addition to the ignition with my key in it not being able to start my car up .. My key that has a chip in it that starts up my vehicle has a chip and key fobe that is attached to it and it also wasn’t working.. I ended up getting a ride from a near by neighbor so that I could go get a new battery for my vehicle key/key fobe’.. I was thinking it was the battery of my key/key fobe causing the issue.. When I returned back home to my vehicle with a new battery installed into my key/fobe.. It still wasn’t working & my car was in the same predicament’ !!.. I was alarmed.. At this point I then proceeded to call different emergency lock and key companies that could come on site to me.. I reside in the suburbs so this was the only way for me at the time’.. The above info about my Mercury retrograde story is just the beginning’.. There’s more to be continued’.. Stay tuned for the rest of the story’ …… There’s more to come’.
     When I talk to people about their yearly charts, one of many things I look at is when Mercury will be in its shadow or retrograde.  For help is planning the next twelve months, contact me by email or call me at 785-232-2836.

     (Me)  Until July 26 be careful while traveling, pay attention around weapons and sharp objects and avoid arguing. Fiery, forceful Mars is in a challenging square aspect to unpredictable Uranus. The Sun close to Mars just adds fuel to the fire. Politically, only God knows what might happen. The news will be full of unexpected events.
     (Me)  Theoretically, any aspect is supposed to be better than no aspect. Even challenging aspects give us energy to create our lives. Some energy is harder to deal with than others. We can try to learn to be thoughtful, present, and loving during challenging times.
     (My daughter Trish Williams who is a great astrologer)  Squares and oppositions offer an opportunity for creative release of tension from stifling or dysfunctional situations. The objective here is to avoid the temptation to either repress totally (that energy will then come out in accidents, or projected on you from other people), or to altogether break free in rebellion. Express these energies in a positive and creative new way, because the time now is beneficial for that. 🙂
     (Me) Trish, are you going after terrain level 5 geocaches this weekend?????????(Geocaches are hidden treasures, seewww.Geocaching.com, and level 5 terrain is the most difficult level.)
     (Trish)  Yes, my first attempt kayaking on a river, a mile UPstream to an island. Neptune isn’t involved, so I’m not so worried about drowning lol. My first thought with these planets was “struck by lightning” LMAO.
     (Trish)  I’m going to look at the positive, this will give me the drive and the physical energy for the hard paddle:)
     (Me)  Well, that is one way of looking at it. Please tell me you are going to wear a life jacket.
      (Trish)  I have a life jacket.  I don’t wear one kayaking on lakes, but I will wear it.
     The above is part of a discussion that is on my Facebook page,www.Facebook.com/AstrologerDianneLawsonand gives you an idea of how you might use this planetary aspect.  Take care and use the extra energy to get what you want done.

     My last post talked about an intense planetary energy through July 12. This weekend the Sun will join Mars and the Moon will join Pluto. Having the Sun and Moon involved creates even more energy to the Mars and Pluto challenging opposition.
     We have a choice as always in how we handle this energy. Avoid drama and confrontation! Don’t get into arguments, especially with family members. Guard against anger, your own as well as others’.
     The best way to deal with this energy is to get busy and use it to accomplish our goals. Our choices create our lives.
     July and August have many challenging astrological happenings, especially to Trump’s chart. He is not having an easy time and is in an especially karmic time where it is imperative that he make correct choices and not react too quickly or aggressively.
     When I discuss a person’s yearly chart I always include how the planets in the sky are affecting that individual.  If you are interested in how planetary energies will influence you for the next twelve months, let me know.  Dianne 785.232.2836

     For the next two weeks, avoid drama! Don’t get into arguments, especially with family members. Watch out while traveling. Guard against accidents and health problems. Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation and health, is joining the planetary configuration mentioned in my last post, adding even more energy for us to deal with. Be sure and read my last post for even more information.
_______________________________________
Anger, transformation and you
Tremendous planetary energy 
     Over-the-top anger continues until July 12, 2017.  This is going to be very noticeable in the news, but is a background energy for all of us.  A T-square of Jupiter, Mars and Pluto will be in effect during this time.  Mars in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn, and Jupiter is about 90 degrees from both of them, forming a T-square and creating a tremendous amount of planetary energy.
     Jupiter enlarges whatever it touches, and it also corresponds with beliefs and religion.  Mars is the planet of force, drive, energy and anger, and Pluto is the planet of intensity, explosions, mass destruction, bombs, atomic energy, earth changes and catastrophes.            These planets also have other, positive meanings, but during a cardinal T-square, it is easier to manifest the negative side of them.
In astrology, we can use any planetary energy to our good, but challenging planetary configurations, such as a T-square, can cause us problems if we are not consciously making good choices and using the extra energy to create what we want in life.
     We need to guard against anger and negativity.  We and others around us may have intense feelings and should remember to not let any situation intensify.
     The signs these planets are in have correspondences to our homes, families, relationships and careers, so we will have the ability to make positive changes in these areas and transform our lives to be the way we want them.  We can learn to balance these areas of our lives.  We can decide what we want, how to get there and then take action to create the kind of lives we want.
     As always, when I talk to people about their yearly chart (forecast for the next twelve months), I include how planetary configurations are affecting them personally.  People who have points in their birth charts in the middle degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will be especially influenced by this configuration.
     If you want to find out how these and many other planetary energies will be influencing you, let me know.
Your astrologer,
Dianne

Eclipse, Trump and You
     On August 21, 2017 there will be total eclipse of the Sun, visible in the United States.  Wherever the eclipse shadow falls indicates where the focus of world attention will be, so the United States will be the center of attention in the world.  Solar eclipses in mundane astrology indicate natural disasters, political turmoil, significant events, beginnings, endings and the death of the king or the downfall of the leader.  Since this eclipse falls on Trump’s Ascendant, the health and well being of Trump is a concern.
     Queen Victoria has a solar eclipse on her Ascendant just before her death.  Nixon had a solar eclipse opposite his Sun just before he left office.
     Astrologers differ in their opinions as to how long the influence of eclipses last, from some astrologers thinking the influence can start months before the eclipse to some thinking the influence can last for a few years.  Most think just before to up to a year after the date of the eclipse.
     This particular eclipse for various reasons, too complicated to go into here, indicates that we need to work towards our higher good, doing what we came into this life to do, and always being loving, including to ourselves.  We need to step outside our comfort zone and fulfill our destinies.
     What does this have to do with you?  Since the eclipse is in the United States, I would strongly urge you to plan to see it.  You can Google to find out how and why to see it or wait until closer to the time and I will email you information about the eclipse.
     If you want to have your yearly chart done, I always include what eclipses mean to individual people.  Eclipses indicate endings and beginnings, but don’t have to be bad.  They do let us know where we need to pay attention in our lives.  This event will especially affect people who have the Sun, Moon, Planets, the Midheaven or the Ascendant of their birth charts from 24 to 30 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
     Helping you to make your life the best it can be, your astrologer,
Dianne

Tomorrow it is possible to see bright meteors during the day but more likely to see them before dawn.
DAYTIME METEOR SHOWER: This week, Earth is passing through a stream of dusty debris from … where? No one knows for sure. The encounter is causing a daytime meteor shower as meteoroids hit the top of Earth’s atmosphere traveling 39 km/s (87,000 mph). A meteor radar in Canada is tracking strong activity in the constellation Aries not far from the sun. The display is mostly invisible to the human eye–but not entirely. It may be possible to see some of these strange meteors during a narrow window of darkness before sunrise, especially on June 7th when the shower is expected to peak.

With the Moon in Scorpio today and tomorrow, and especially because the Full Moon is in Scorpio tomorrow, it is an excellent time to get rid of clutter in your life.  This means, of course, all the material items that you do not need, use or want, but anything in your life or any person in your life that does not serve your higher good.
I have always told people that the most important thing to do to use Feng Shui principles in their lives is to get rid of clutter.  It is easier to do so when the Moon is in Scorpio.
Now I am also telling people that it may be just as important to only have items in your homes and offices that bring you joy.  The two ideas work together.  It is easier for me to get rid of what no longer serves me when I ask myself, “Does this bring me joy?”
For help in getting rid of clutter in your home or office or to improve your life by changing your surroundings, call me to schedule a Feng Shui consultation.  I charge $90 an hour and it usually takes one to two hours–fee determined prior to consultation.
And yes, I do work with people over the phone, as well as in person.  I always looked down my nose at people who did this, until someone begged me and I found out it works!  It works primarily because I teach you how to change your surroundings.  People send me photos or videos and floor plans, especially the perimeter of their places.
Change your surroundings and change your life!
NEW Bagua Mirrors
 
Mirrors are usually placed on the front side of the house, either inside or outside of the house, and facing away from the house.
Mirrors can also be placed inside a desk, facing towards the intended target, and on any side of the house, facing towards the intended target.
The concave mirrors invite positive energy into a house or a space.  When placing this mirror say aloud what your intentions are, such as, “I am placing this mirror because I want positive energy to enter into my house to make everyone who enters here to be happy, prosperous and healthy.”
The convex mirrors repel negative energy away for a house or a space.  When placing this mirror say aloud something to the effect, “I am placing this mirror so that I will not be bothered by any negative energy of any kind, especially …”
You can periodically touch mirrors and say aloud any new intention you wish at any time.  You can also repeat the same intention that you did previously.
NEW Money Frogs
Cute, cute, cute Money Frogs should be inside the house relatively close to the front door with their backs to the door, as if they were hopping into the house, bringing you the money.
When placing the frog, say aloud your intention.  Feng Shui reminds us that if we always use positive thoughts, positive words and positive actions, we can have what we want in life.
The mirrors and frogs are each only $10 plus shipping and handling ($5 up to $15 total order, $10 for up to $50 and $15 more than $50 in the USA.).  Besides these new products, I have old standbys.   l provide information along with products, so you know what to do with them.
Call me if you want help in knowing what products will meet your individual needs. 785-232-2836

Hoppy Easter!  And that spelling is purposeful.
Easter is a good example of the heavens mirroring what happens on earth. We celebrate Easter on the perfect astrological day–when the heavens mirror what happened on earth around the time of the first Easter.
Easter is always celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full Moon after the vernal equinox.  The vernal equinox is when the Sun on its path in the sky (the ecliptic) crosses the celestial equator.  In astrology the Sun symbolizes children, so we have symbolically the Son on the cross (the Sun is on the point where the ecliptic crosses over the celestial equator.)  In astrology the full Moon symbolizes completion.  It is done.  In astrology Sunday is the Sun’s (Son’s) day.  So, Easter is astrologically timed.  The heavens every year mirror the first Easter.
When my husband and I were in Italy and The Vatican, we happened upon a church that was designed by Michelangelo.  The church is in Rome and is called The Basilica of St. Mary of Angels and Martyrs, a place of worship and prayer, of art and science.  Besides the statues usually found in Catholic Churches, there were also statues of scientists.  Besides the incredibly beautiful religious paintings, there were also scientific displays with explanations.
Of special interest to me in the church was a Meridian Line.  A hole in the basilica’s ceiling sends a ray of light from the Sun that lands on the line at exact noon every day. The time of year can be determined by where on the line the light falls. The line is made of bronze, encased in white marble.  It is laid diagonally across the floor and is 45 meters long.  On either side of the line are the symbols for the signs of the zodiac.
The Meridian Line was commissioned by Pope Clement XI and was completed in 1702.
The purpose of the line was to know when to celebrate Easter. 
Many astronomers and many Popes have been astrologers.  It was wonderful for me to see this magnificent cathedral that incorporated worship and prayer, art and science and astrology.

Tell me your Mercury Retrograde stories and I will post them on my blog, Facebook page and emails.  Let me know how you want me to identify you (name or initials, city?)  You can tell me in person, over the phone, by email or on my Facebook page.

To start off, here are two Mercury Retrograde stories.

Nicole Wheeler of Holton, Kansas said that she has had multiple problems with transportation, work and communication during this Mercury Retrograde period.  She hit a pothole and cracked one of her wheels and also hit a wire that popped off a piece of her car.  A work-related trip required three emails to finally get the correct date and address of a hotel stay.  Her Google maps have been “totally out of whack.”

My daughter Trish Williams of Topeka, Kansas had an old Mercury Retrograde story that is worth telling as a reminder for people who are thinking of buying or selling a house.  She and her husband signed a contract for a house on a Friday when Mercury was Retrograde.  On Sunday, her husband told me that the realtor told him the paperwork was not done correctly so had to be redone on Monday.  On Monday a creek overtook its bank for six blocks and totally flooded the house.  This Mercury Retrograde had a happy ending, though, as they were not stuck with the flooded house and ended up buying a better house after Mercury went direct.  Mercury Retrograde is not all bad, but it is not a good time to sign contracts that you want to be long lasting.

LUNAR ECLIPSE THIS FRIDAY NIGHT  February 10, 2017
 
Read tonight so you can be prepared and know when to see it
 
The full Moon will lose some of its usual luster on Friday night as a dusky shadow creeps across the lunar disk.  It’s a penumbral lunar eclipse, visible from parts of every continent except Australia. The uneven dimming of the Moon will be easy to see if you know when to look. Visit today’s edition of Spaceweather.com for observing tips and more information.

My husband and I just returned from Italy and The Vatican. We had a marvelous time! Did you know that many of the Popes either were or had astrologers? Did you know that the largest astrological library is in The Vatican? 

The obelisk in St. Peter’s Square in The Vatican functions as a sun dial, not for hours of the day, but for the signs of the zodiac. The shadow of the obelisk falls on symbols of the zodiac.
 
During our trip we saw many other places that showed symbols of the presence of astrology written in stone.  Astrology has been used by people for thousands of years and can be helpful to you, too. 
 
Now that I am home, I am ready to talk to you about your or your loved ones’ birth charts, yearly charts or horary astrology questions.  Contact me at 785.232.2836 or Cappie0113@aol.com
 

THE BIGGEST FULL MOON IN ALMOST 70 YEARS: On Monday, Nov. 14th, 2016, there’s going to be a full Moon–the biggest and brightest in almost 70 years. The best time to look in North

America is before sunrise on Monday morning, while in Europe the best time is after sunset on the same day.

“The last time we had such a close full Moon was January 26, 1948,” says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory, “and it won’t happen again until November 25, 2034.”

Full moons vary in size because the Moon’s orbit is not a circle, it’s an ellipse: diagram. One side of the Moon’s orbit, called “perigee,” is 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other side, “apogee.” This Monday’s “supermoon” becomes full about 2 hours away from perigee, a coincidence that makes it as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons we have seen in the past.

But will we be able to tell the difference … just by looking?  A 30% difference in brightness can easily be masked by clouds or the glare of urban lights.  Also, there are no rulers floating in the sky to measure lunar diameters. Hanging high overhead with no reference points to provide a sense of scale, one full Moon looks much like any other.

“I think that the hype over the term ‘supermoon’ is a bit overblown,” says Chester.  “In my book every full Moon has something to offer!”

To get the most out of Monday’s apparition, try to catch the Moon just as it is rising or setting. This will activate the Moon Illusion and make the perigee Moon of Nov. 14th look super, indeed.  The above is from www.spaceweather.com.

 

 

October 20, 2016

METEORS FROM HALLEY’S COMET: Earth has entered a stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower.  Forecasters expect the shower to peak during the night of Oct. 20-21 with as many as 10-20 meteors per hour.  Glare from tonight’s gibbous Moon will mute the display, but not completely eliminate it as NASA cameras are observing some Orionid fireballs bright enough to be seen in the moonlight. Visit Spaceweather.com for observing tips and more information.

Spirit Mind Body Fair November 5 and 6, 2016

So many people have been asking me lately if Topeka is going to have the Spirit Mind Body fair this year. The answer is yes, and my son Brian and I will be there. It will be the first weekend in November, the 5th and 6th,  at the Expo Center Agricultural Hall west of Topeka Avenue on 17th St., Topeka, KS.  I will be giving astrology, card and palm readings and my son will be showing you my Feng Shui products and how to use them. Saturday will be from 10 am until 7 pm and Sunday will be from 11 am until 5 pm.

__________________________________

Three reasons to be happy on and after October 6, 2016

1 . Communication is easier.

2. Traveling becomes less stressful.

3. Machines operate better.

And why? Because at 1:24 pm today Mercury goes out of its shadow. For more information about exactly what Mercury being in its shadow means, go to http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.

Many of my clients have been telling me that this Mercury being being retrograde and then being in its shadow has indicated problems in communications, traveling and having machines, especially cars, malfunction.

What Mercury is doing is just one of many, many things astrologers look at, but what it is doing does make a difference.

While Mercury was in its shadow, I had a miscommunication with one of my children and had my car recalled because of problems with the passenger airbag.

I would love to hear your experiences with Mercury being in its shadow between September 22, 2016 and October 6, 2016. Please share at www.Facebook.com/AstrologerDianneLawson.

Many, many of my clients have been telling me how stressful this last retrograde Mercury has been for them.  Good news!  Mercury goes direct today!  Click me and I’ll teach you something useful.  http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.
Mercury, the planet that corresponds with communication, transportation and machines has been in apparent backwards motion (retrograde) since August 30, 2016.  And it starts going in forward motion today.  What does this mean?  To see what this means, please go to http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.

August 31, 2016

     If you’ve been feeling emotional lately, you might want to chalk it up to the Solar Eclipse that is happening tomorrow, September 1, 2016.  Solar eclipses happen when the Moon travels exactly in front of the Sun, as seen from somewhere on the Earth.  In astrology, the Moon symbolizes emotions and the Sun symbolizes rationality, so around the time the Moon masks the Sun, emotions dominate.  Many people will let their emotions carry them away and many will be more emotional than the situation warrants.   The best way to handle this emotional energy is to keep busy and not act until we feel more in control of our emotions.           
     Around the time of Solar Eclipses is great for starting new habits to acquire what we want in life.  Since this eclipse is in Virgo, it is a great time to take charge of our daily lives, work habits and health.  Starting new diets and exercise programs are more likely to be successful over time if started now.
     Eclipses are times of endings and new beginnings, especially in the area in which they fall in your individual birth chart.  Eclipses affect everyone differently according to the individual birth chart.  If your birthday is a week before or after this eclipse, it will have a major impact upon your life. If you have had your yearly chart done by me recently I included what eclipses mean for you in your yearly forecast.
     The yearly chart looks at a lot more than just the eclipses and is a forecast to help you navigate through the next twelve months regardless of when you have it done.  If you want your yearly chart done by me, call me at 785.232.2836 or email me at Cappie0113@aol.com.

Mercury, the planet that corresponds with communication, transportation and machines goes into apparent backwards motion (retrograde) August 30, 2016 and is already in its shadow.  What does this mean?  To see what this means and how that will affect you, please go to http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.

So many of my clients love knowing when Mercury is retrograde so that they can plan accordingly.  It is good time to wrap up loose ends and to clear out clutter.

SPECTACULAR CONJUNCTION: This weekend, Jupiter and Venus are having a spectacular conjunction in the sunset sky. Separated by only a fraction of a degree, the two brightest planets almost look like they’re going to touch. This heavenly meeting is easy to see from the southern hemisphere, but much more challenging from the north. Visit http://spaceweather.com for more information and the latest images.

AUGUST 26, 2017

I see astrology like a weather forecast, showing what the weather is likely to be, but it is always up to us what we are going to do to with that knowledge.  When it is likely to be perfect outside, we may want to plan to be out in it.  It the forecast is rain, we might take an umbrella.

     August 27, 2016 through September 3, 2016 is a terrific time to travel, learn, enjoy life, be with people we care about, make money, buy presents for ourselves and others, write and communicate.  The Greater Benefic, Jupiter, is very close in the sky to The Lesser Benefic, Venus, and Mercury.  Beneficial Jupiter is te planet that has a correspondence to travel, education and luck.  Also beneficial, Venus is the planet associated with love, social life, money and possessions.  Mercury is connected with travel, learning, writing and communication.
     Earlier this year, I wrote about Saturn squaring Neptune, as it is a hard planetary configuration for people to deal with if they are not seeing situations and people realistically and they are not living up to their spiritual beliefs.  Mars is now a part of that configuration, as it is very close to Saturn until September 4, 2016, adding more stress, energy and challenge to people’s lives.  Saturn squaring (about 90 degrees from) Neptune has  been in effect for awhile and will continue through the rest of 2016. Saturn corresponds with structure, responsibility and the real world. Neptune corresponds with spirituality, confusion and deception.
     This is a great time for regular spiritual practice and setting time aside for connection to God and nature.  Put your spiritual beliefs into practice.
     By far, the biggest problem I have seen with Saturn squaring Neptune is that people see people the way they want them to be, rather than the way they really are. Pay attention to what people do, not what they say. Don’t let anyone deceive you and don’t deceive yourself.
     To see how these planetary configurations and many more will affect you individually for the next twelve months, you may want your yearly astrological chart explained. For more information, contact me or go to
http://www.diannelawson.com/find_us/yearly-chart/

PERSEID METEOR OUTBURST: Do you love the Perseid meteor shower?  This year, you will love it even more. Forecasters say the 2016 Perseids should be twice as active as usual, filling the sky with 200+ meteors per hour on peak nights between Aug. 11th and 13th, 2016.  This is happening because Earth is heading for an unusually rich stream of debris from parent comet Swift-Tuttle. Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps, observing tips, and links to live webcasts of the Perseid outburst.

May 22, 2016.  A woman from the UK called me this week to ask if she should go back to a previous modeling agency under the shadow of Mercury. I am sharing my response to her because it is good advice to anyone, including YOU.

Mercury will be leaving being Retrograde and will go into its shadow tomorrow, May 23, 2016. If you don’t understand or you want a refresher on what Mercury Retrograde and the shadow of Mercury mean, go to

http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/

I told her that the matter was controversial and not all astrologers would agree with me, but I would start a new job or go back to a previous agency under Mercury’s shadow, but usually not under Mercury Retrograde, unless necessary, or if my yearly chart was great for career.

I also told her that what is happening in the sky, such as Mercury Retrograde or the shadow of Mercury is important, but what is going on in an individual’s yearly chart is more important. http://www.diannelawson.com/find_us/yearly-chart/

I gave myself as an example. Years ago, I started a new social work job under Mercury Retrograde and for a whole host of reasons it turned out really well for me. The job was short-lived-only three months and it led to two more short-lived social work positions, but all three were very happy positions for me. Mercury Retrograde can lead to changes, but not all changes are bad. I knew what I getting into under Mercury Retrograde (the possibility of the position being short-lived or having major changes), but I also knew that my individual yearly chart had great things in store for me. Real astrology includes many, many variables, of which only a part is how the planets in the sky are affecting a person’s individual birth chart.

I also told her that Horary Astrology, the ancient form of astrology that can answer ANY question, would be a quick and easy way for her to find out if she should go back to a previous agency. She could ask something like, “Should I go back to agency X and why?” If you don’t know about Horary Astrology, I urge you to go to http://www.diannelawson.com/find_us/horary/

Mercury Retrograde and the shadow of Mercury are important and should be paid attention to, but real Astrology is much more and can be specific to each person. If I can help you understand yourself better, prepare for the future or answer any questions about your life, please let me know.

Meteors, Mercury and Mars
METEORS FROM HALLEY’S COMET: Earth is entering a stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual eta Aquariid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on the nights around May 5th and 6th with 30+ meteors per hour. The best time to look, no matter where you live, is probably during the dark hours before sunrise on Friday. Got clouds? No problem. You can still experience this meteor shower by listening to it. Meteor radar echoes are being streamed live on Spaceweather.com.

On May 9th, at 7 a.m. Eastern the planet Mercury will pass in front of the sun, producing an inky-black spot on the solar disk. You can watch it yourself if you have eclipse glasses or hear it on Spaceweather.com.

Mars closest approach to the earth is May 18 through June 3 when it will appear its brightest. I went outside this morning and was stunned to see how red it looked. I have never seen it that red ever. It’s worth a look. Right now it is visible from about 10 p.m. until about 7 a.m.

Your astrologer,

Dianne

From April 30, 2016 through May 20, 2016, Venus, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto are all in practical Earth signs. This is a fortunate time to concentrate on practical matters such as budgeting, making money, working hard and concentrating on your career or what you give to the world. Grab opportunities to make more money or to obtain goals. Hard work pays off.

Mercury goes retrograde today, April 28, 2016, joining Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and Pluto all retrograde. With this many planets going in apparent backward motion as seen from the Earth, it can seem as if progress is slow. It is a good time to assess if you are spending your time and energy on what is most important to you.

To see what Mercury, the planet that corresponds with communication, transportation and machines, means when it is retrograde, and how it may affect you, please go to http://www.DianneLawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/.

Uranus squaring Pluto (about 90 degrees from), has been in effect for awhile and will continue through the rest of the year. Uranus corresponds with the unexpected and Pluto corresponds with criminals, violence, police, weapons of mass destruction, but also transformation.

What we need to do is to watch out for criminal behavior or possible accidents or violence. Be aware of your surroundings and keep your valuables safe.

If we are wanting to transform any part of our lives, this planetary energy can help us. I know of several people who recently joined a gym, joined Weight Watchers or are working with a doctor or a nutritionist to transform their bodies. I see results for them, many of whom never before were successful in losing weight.

Saturn squaring (about 90 degrees from) Neptune has also been in effect for awhile and will continue through the rest of 2016. Saturn corresponds with structure, responsibility and the real world. Neptune corresponds with spirituality, confusion and deception.

This is a great time for regular spiritual practice and setting time aside for connection to God and nature.

By far, the biggest problem I have seen with Saturn squaring Neptune is that people see people the way they want them to be, rather than the way they really are. Pay attention to what people do, not what they say. Don’t let anyone deceive you and don’t deceive yourself.

      What we need to do is to watch out for criminal behavior or possible accidents or violence.  Be aware of your surroundings and keep your valuables safe.
      If we are wanting to transform any part of our lives, this planetary energy can help us.  I know of several people who recently joined a gym, joined Weight Watchers or are working with a doctor or a nutritionist to transform their bodies.  I see results for them, many of whom never before were successful in losing weight.
     Saturn squaring (about 90 degrees from) Neptune has also been in effect for awhile and will continue through the rest of 2016.  Saturn corresponds with structure, responsibility and the real world.  Neptune corresponds with spirituality, confusion and deception.
     This is a great time for regular spiritual practice and setting time aside for connection to God and nature.
     By far, the biggest problem I have seen with Saturn squaring Neptune is that people see people the way they want them to be, rather than the way they really are.  Pay attention to what people do, not what they say.  Don’t let anyone deceive you and don’t deceive yourself.
     To see how these planetary configurations and many more will affect you individually for the next twelve months, you may want your yearly astrological chart explained.  For more information, contact me or go to

Super Moon Solar Eclipse and Coincidences
There is a Super Moon Solar Eclipse today, March 8, 2016.  Unfortunately, we can’t view it from the United States, but it does have an impact on all of us.
First, some interesting and freakish coincidental astronomical facts, then how the eclipse affects us astrologically.
Astronomy
A Super Moon is when the Moon is at its closest to the earth.  (Some astrologers think that Super Moon eclipses have stronger effects than other eclipses. I am not one of them.)
A Solar Eclipse is when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, obscuring the Sun’s face.
Coincidences?
Our Moon is the only satellite in our solar system that looks the same size as the Sun does as seen from its planet’s surface.  In other words, Earth is the only planet in our solar system that can have a Solar Eclipse.
The distance of the Sun from the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.
The distance of the Moon from the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Moon.
The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth.
Ancient Hindus knew all of the above and incorporated it as sacred geometry in their temples.
Astrology 
This eclipse can be seen over the Pacific and Pacific-rim countries, including Indonesia, Malasia, Southeast Asia and Australia.  They may have major changes during the next twelve months.  I am especially watching all of the Eastern Pacific countries and the Pacific rim of North America for earthquakes, volcanoes and dramatic weather.  Because of other astrological patterns in the sky at the time of the eclipse, I am expecting weather extremes and natural disasters, beyond what is usual, for the entire earth.
This Solar Eclipse is in the sign Pisces, so now for the next twelve months we need to be especially careful to be grounded, see situations and people the way they really are and not how we want them to be.  If someone else has been fooling us or if we have been fooling ourselves, it can be a time of major disillusionment.  Secrets and lies may be coming to light.  Don’t be a victim nor try to rescue one.
The positive side of this eclipse is that it is a great time to heal your body, mind and emotions and to get more in touch with your spiritual and artistic side.  Take charge of your health.  Spend time nourishing your spirit and your creativity.  If you are not happy with your health, work or daily routines, now is the time to change them and have positive results.
Eclipses are times of endings and new beginnings, especially in the area in which they fall in your individual birth chart.  Eclipses affect everyone differently according to the individual birth chart.  If you have had your yearly chart done by me recently I included what eclipses mean for you in your yearly forecast.
The yearly chart looks at a lot more than just the eclipses and is a forecast to help you navigate through the next twelve months regardless of when you have it done.  If you want your yearly chart done by me, call me at 785.232.2836 or email me at Cappie0113@aol.com.

When you read the following, remember that all planetary aspects can be used for good, some are just easier than others.

There are two very strong planetary configurations in the sky right now, both of which are hard to deal with.  The first one, Uranus squaring Pluto (about 90 degrees from), has been in effect for awhile and has been mirroring the chaos, unpredictable and violent happenings in the world.  Uranus corresponds with the unexpected and Pluto corresponds with criminals, violence, police, weapons of mass destruction, but also transformation.

Mars is also opposite (about 180 degrees) Uranus, further adding energy, force, drive guns into the picture.  Mercury (news, communication) close to Pluto and the Moon (emotions) close to Uranus are also adding fuel to the fire.

You can read your newspaper or watch your television to see instances of this configuration on the world scene.

What you need to do as an individual is to watch out for criminal behavior or possible accidents or violence.  I am not saying stay home under the covers, but I am saying guard your temper and take preventative measures.  Be aware of your surroundings and keep your valuables safe.

If you are wanting to transform any part of your life, this planetary energy can help you.  I know of several people who recently joined a gym, joined Weight Watchers or are working with a doctor or a nutritionist to transform their bodies.  I see results for them, many of whom never before were successful in losing weight.

The second planetary configuration is Saturn squaring (about 90 degrees from) Neptune.  Saturn corresponds with structure, responsibility and the real world.  Neptune corresponds with spirituality, confusion and deception.

This is a great time for regular spiritual practice and setting time aside for connection to God and nature.  It is a imperative to structure your life to get your most important goals completed or time can be frittered away.

By far, the biggest problem I have seen with people is that they see people the way they want them to be, rather than the way they really are.  They get caught up with feeling good and not recognizing that someone is not worth their time.  I often tell my clients that actions speak louder than words.  Pay attention to what people do, not what they say.  Don’t let anyone deceive you and don’t deceive yourself.

Both of these aspects have been going on for awhile and will continue through the rest of 2015 and 2016.  Forewarned is forearmed.  I hope this helps you have a good rest of 2015 and a Happy New Year.

The Spirit Mind Body Fair is this weekend and it will be huge with people doing readings and vendors selling books, jewelry, clothing and more.  There will also be food, free demonstrations and interesting people. 

I will be there helping people solve relationship and career matters, knowing future trends and answering questions and more, by providing card, palm and astrology readings. 

My son, Brian Miller, will be there with my Feng Shui products, including several new ones.  I am especially excited about three new products that I have been wanting for a long time.  I will have another shipment tomorrow and I will tell you more about it later.  

1.  I sold out of small Money Frogs a long time ago and could not find another supplier for them until now.  

2.  The new small red crystal paperweights are extraordinary, as light reflects inside them over and over for a spectacular effect.  They are great for the most important part of your house–the Fame, Status and Reputation area.  That area has a big impact on all of the other areas of your life–relationships, career, wealth and so on.   

3.  I used to have Ugly Rats which were my best seller, as they help with career.  I couldn’t find any more rats that were reasonably priced until recently, and these ones are cute!   

Brian will be available to tell you what to do with everything you buy from him.     

I hope you can come.  Put it on your calendar.

 Venus is retrograde

So many people have asked me about Venus being retrograde that I decided to write and let you know what I think about this.  Venus is retrograde July 25, 2015 through September 6, 2015.

A planet is retrograde when it appears to go backwards through the signs of the zodiac as seen from earth.  It is due to the relative positions of the earth and the planet.

I have to tell you that I don’t pay much attention to when any of the planets, except Mercury, go retrograde.  Retrograde planets have effects, but so do many other astrological happenings.

Venus is the planet that corresponds with love, social life, money and possessions.  The books often say that when Venus goes retrograde, people from your past may reenter your life.  I haven’t seen that much, but I do think, that Venus retrograde is a good time to rethink your relationships and how you are doing them.  Is the person worthy of your time and energy?  Are you the person you want to be in relationships?  Do you have the kind of relationships you want?  If not, do something to change them.  What do you need to learn about how you have been handling your relationships?

If you haven’t been handling your relationships to your benefit and the benefit of others, it may feel as if the universe gives you lessons that you need to learn.

When Venus is retrograde is not especially a good time to buy expensive or luxury items.  If you do need to buy something big now, just be sure and do your homework to see if it is likely to last and meet your expectations.

Watch the western sky after sunset now through June 30 as Venus and Jupiter get closer and closer until they look like a double star.  Venus will be the brighter object and is usually the brightest object in the sky after the Sun and the Moon.

Not only do the two planets look beautiful in the nighttime sky, they can bring happiness into your life if you take advantage of the opportunities that they bring.  In astrology, Venus is called the Lesser Benefic and Jupiter is called the Greater Benefic, bringing benefits into people’s lives.  Having these together makes a “double whammy” of positivity.

They are both in the sign Leo, the sign of love, entertainment, fun, children and creativity.  Now is the time to be with loved ones, be entertained, have fun, be with children and unleash your creativity.  Don’t let this fortunate period pass you by.  Act now to use this planetary power.

I hope this helps you create the life you want.

_________________________________________________________________________

Several people over the last few days have asked me, “What the heck is going on now astrologically?”  Lots of people have had miscommunications and changes of plans.  Part of the reason is because Mercury went into the shadow period on May 4, 2015 and will go retrograde on May 18, 2015.  For more information about that go to http://www.diannelawson.com/find_us/mercury-retrograde/

Knowledge is power.  Be flexible and make sure you understand others and they understand you.  I hope this helps you create the life you want.

EARTH DAY METEOR SHOWER: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from ancient Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower.  According to radar data, the shower is peaking today with meteor rates as high as 15 per hour.  It’s best to watch it after midnight or at least after 10 p.m. tonight.

_____________________________________________________________

March 2014 is a good month to reassess your life and make necessary changes to create the kind of life you want.  It is will be a roller coaster month for you and for the world.  Strong planetary energies are in force and will help you make needed changes.

This is a great time to work on relationships as Mars in Libra is retrograde (in apparent backward motion as seen from the earth) now through until May 19, 2014.  This is the time to reassess relationships and make them fair and equitable.  In astrology, Libra is the sign of relationships, partnerships and marriage, and it also is the sign of fairness and equality.  If you have been in a relationship in which you have been doing more than your fair share, perhaps it is time to change the relationship and maybe even let it go.  If you have not been doing your fair share, maybe it is time to either recognize why or step up to the plate.

Saturn is also retrograde and will be until July 19, 2014.  Saturn is the great teacher of the zodiac and teaches us what we need to learn.  Pay attention to how your life is going and make necessary changes to have it be closer to your ideal life.

Saturn is in the sign of Scorpio, the sign of regeneration, transformation and elimination.  I plan on working this month on eliminating items from my house that I no longer need or want.

I have talked before about the strong Uranus square Pluto aspect and it remains in force.  This is some of what I wrote about it in 2012 on the blog on my website:

Major transformations February 27, 2012 through June 13, 2015.
Uranus and Pluto are so far from the Sun that they take a long time to go around the Sun and through the signs of the zodiac. When they form angles with other outer planets, those aspects are in effect for a long time. Uranus squares Pluto (is about 90 degrees from) for more than three years, forming an underlying background for the other planetary aspects.

We will not notice their effect every day of this period, but we will notice major changes that can be attributable to these planets. Uranus brings the unpredictable, the unusual and the eccentric. It is a very freedom-loving planet and it can be rebellious and strong-willed.

Pluto is explosive, powerful and eliminates what is no longer needed. Uranus is in Aries, a strong and independent sign, and Pluto is in Capricorn, which rules structures, laws and governments.

During this three-year period, we see upheavals, struggles, revolutions, rebellions, unusual weather patterns and abrupt earth changes—volcanoes and earthquakes.

It addition to it the Uranus-Pluto square, Jupiter is square Uranus and opposite Pluto, multiplying the energy to the planetary configuration.  Because of the signs these planets are in, Cancer (the sign of family), Aries (the sign of self) and Capricorn (the sign of career or what we give to the world), we may feel pulled in too many directions at once.  The key is to have some balance in your life and take care of your family, yourself and your career, as well as you can without any one area taking too much time away from the others.

This can be an exciting time to make changes in our lives if we use these planetary energies wisely.  I hope this is of benefit to you.

Space Weather News  http://spaceweather.com
PERSEID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a broad stream of debris from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower. Although the shower won’t peak until August 12-13, when Earth hits the densest part of the stream, the first Perseids are already arriving. Check http://spaceweather.comfor images and updates.

 

I remember lying out in my back yard as a child watching this annual meteor shower and seeing a HUGE fireball that changed from white to orange to green.  It was spectacular.  The best time to see meteor showers is after midnight when the earth is moving toward the shower.  I’ll be watching for meteors until August 13.  Dianne

Finally!

Mercury will leave its Retrograde post-shadow period tomorrow, August 3, 2013.  This particular Mercury Retrograde period with its pre-shadow and post-shadow has been causing me a lot of little aggravations.

June 12, 2013

I recently came across an old book that I bought many years ago, called Pluto, by Fritz Brunhubner.  It was written in 1934.  In that book, the author wrote about a planetary configuration that is happening now.  He was so right on, that I thought I would share what he wrote with you.

To preface what he wrote, I will explain what he was talking about.  As seen from the earth, Pluto is square (about 90 degrees from) Uranus.  This aspect between these two started in 2010 and will last through June 2015.

The following in red ink is from Pluto, and I think it really describes what is happening to our planet, weather, countries and individuals during the period of 2010 through June 2015.

“Pluto square Uranus is an outspokenly catastrophical and combative aspect…  One could fill a thick book with descriptions of the disasters and tragedy which is involved in this aspect…  Earth and human beings tremble under this cosmic pressure.  The adverse aspects incline to explosiveness, sudden fits of rage, fanatical sense of hate, increased self-will and eccentricity.  They may be bold, erotic, perverted, licentious, rude, violent…They have a blind zeal, ready to quarrel, wrangle and argue.  They are bullheaded, thoughtless, fanatic, impatient, and cannot bear hindrances or delays… 

“However, this aspect also brings the good and signifies a very important stage in the evolution of humanity.  To be sure, old walls are being torn down, and the old and rusted is being destroyed…  We experience inventions of an entirely new kind… which bear the character of daring adventure.” 

I understand that Pluto square Uranus shakes up and destroys, but it also makes way for the new and better.  This aspect is only one of many—some of which are quite favorable—but this aspect certainly defines the period we are going through right now.

What happens between lives?

On April’s last two Sunday afternoons, April 21 and 28, 2013, at 12:15 p.m., at Unity Church of Christianity, 9126 SW Tenth St., Anne McCourtie, Dianne Lawson, and Michael Jamison will facilitate a discussion regarding the soul (your true self) and its possible activities between its embodiments in physical lives. To entice your interest in such matters, you could explore three books available through the Topeka/Shawnee County Public Library for loan, or for purchase at www.amazon.com below to order). The titles to are JOURNEY OF SOULS, by Michael Newton; FLIPSIDE, by Richard Martini; and GHOST HUNTERS, by Deborah Blum. Your insightful comments shared in the discussion will likely augment a deeper presentation to be given by your Unity minister at an Infinite Source Church meeting this summer. In the meantime, do some thinking and/or reading outside the box.

During one of my past life regressions, I experienced going to a place between that life and this one.  I will share that experience with you.

I will also be selling Feng Shui necklaces and faceted crystal balls.

I will be there providing card, palm and astrology readings for $20. Card readings usually give advice about what is happening now and in the near future, although they can help with any situation.  Palm readings tell about your past, present and future.  The astrology readings are mini birth charts (good for people who would like a taste of what real astrology is and what astrology says about their potentials and what their life path is) and the ancient art of horary astrology that can answer almost any question.

 

I will also be selling Feng Shui necklaces and faceted crystal balls.

Be sure and watch the western sky on March 12 and 13, 2013. 

BRIGHT COMET: This weekend, bright Comet Pan-STARRS is making a close approach to the sun inside the orbit of Mercury where fierce solar heat is helping the comet reach naked-eye visibility. Observers in the northern hemisphere are making their first sightings now as the comet emerges from solar glare low in the western sky after sunset.  Soon, the comet could be widely visible to casual sky watchers–no telescope required.  Visit http://spaceweather.com/ for images, sky maps and observing tips.

RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION: Today, Feb. 15th, a meteor exploded in the daytime skies of Chelyabinsk, Russian.  Shock waves from the blast shattered windows in many buildings and sent onlookers to the hospital with wounds from flying glass. 

The meteoroid entered the atmosphere just as asteroid 2012 DA14 was approaching Earth for a record-setting close approach later in the day.  However, NASA says there is no connection between the two: the Russian meteor and 2012 DA14 have different trajectories. A cosmic coincidence?  Visit http://spaceweather.com more information and updates.

With the news of the Pope stepping down, I immediately thought of the Malachy Prophecies.  I am very skeptical about prophecies, but remember that I heard BEFORE the present Pope was elected that he would be called Benedict and he would be the second to the last Pope.  The prophecies say that the next and last Pope will be Peter from Rome.  After that Rome will be destroyed and there will be no more papacy.  I originally heard about these prophecies in the 1960s and have been watching the countdown to the supposed last pope.

The secret to creating more motivation is simple and takes only 3 steps.

Step 1:

Determine in what area of your life you want to be motivated (career,

health, etc.)

Step 2:

Focus on a specific time in the context of Step 1 when you were extremely

motivated.

Step 3:

As you think of that time I want you to “float back into your body” at that

time, looking through your own eyes and…

See what you saw

Hear what you heard

And really FEEL the FEELINGS of being completely and intensely motivated.

Now- AMP UP that feeling and make it even stronger. Feel it FLOW throughout your

entire body.

The above is from Tim Tarango. For more information about him and other hypnosis and NLP practitioners, go to www.TheHypnosisEvent.com.

Try the above daily and see your increased motivation. This is a well-known NLP technique that I use and I know works for me and for my clients.  For more information about NLP, see my NLP button or contact me at Cappie0113@aol.com or 785.232.2836.  January 16, 2013

Astrology Forecast for
October 16 through 31, 2012

Your high energy and enthusiasm carry you far October 6 through 23, 2012.
Mars trine Uranus now means you can enthusiastically start new endeavors and complete them with high energy. Mars represents drive and energy and Uranus is inventive and brings changes.

Curb extravagance October 12 through October 20, 2012.
With fun-loving Venus squaring (is about 90 degrees from) Jupiter, the planet of expansion, we need to be careful not to overspend, overdo, overeat or overdrink. We need fun in our lives, but not all the time.

Get rid of clutter from 7:06 p.m., Central Daylight Time, October 15, 2012 through 7:25 p.m. Central Daylight Time, October 17, 2012.
The Moon is in Scorpio during these two days, and that means it is a good time to get rid of what no longer serves you, from those old coupons in your junk drawer to anyone whose negativity dampens your spirits or who is mean spirited.

Find balance in your life October 19 through November 4, 2012.
With Mars opposite Jupiter in the sky, there is a need to find a balance between the need to achieve and the need to have fun. Watch out for being impatient with yourself or others.

Intense emotions, passion and elimination October 22 through November 21, 2012. The Sun is in Scorpio during these days. Scorpio is the sign of intense emotions and psychic occurrences. Don’t let your emotions run away with you. Pay attention to your hunches. Channel your passions into getting big projects completed. Eliminate from your life what you no longer need or want.

Pull between love and freedom October 27 through November 7, 2012. With the planet of love, Venus, opposite the planet of freedom, Uranus, we must balance our competing needs for connection with others and personal freedom. Try not to give in to impulsivity. Totally unexpected changes in relationships are possible.

All things in Moderation October 29 through November 7, 2012.
Venus moves into a square aspect (is about 90 degrees from) Pluto, indicating a need for moderation in all areas of our lives, but especially with matters concerning love and money. Since Venus is also opposite Uranus, she forms a T-square, a configuration of much power. We feel pulled in too many directions at once and need to prioritize. Making lists helps.

Excellent for rebuilding starting October 5, 2012 through the next two years.
Saturn enters Scorpio on October 5 and will remain there for about two years. Pluto has been and will continue to be in Capricorn for years to come. Having these two planets in the other planet’s sign is good for building solid foundations that will last and rebuilding structures that are better than before. This refers to everything, including relationships and governments.

Major transformations February 27, 2012 through June 13, 2015.
Uranus and Pluto are so far from the Sun that they take a long time to go around the Sun and through the signs of the zodiac. When they form angles with other outer planets, those aspects are in effect for a long time. Uranus squares Pluto (is about 90 degrees from) for more than three years, forming an underlying background for the other planetary aspects.

We will not notice their effect every day of this period, but we will notice major changes that can be attributable to these planets. Uranus brings the unpredictable, the unusual and the eccentric. It is a very freedom-loving planet and it can be rebellious and strong-willed.

Uranus also rules technology, including the Internet, so it has been very interesting how Facebook, Twitter and the Internet have been having a profound influence on what has been happening around the world.

Pluto is explosive, powerful and eliminates what is no longer needed. Uranus is in Aries, a strong and independent sign, and Pluto is in Capricorn, which rules structures, laws and governments.

During this three-year period, we see upheavals, struggles, revolutions, rebellions, unusual weather patterns and abrupt earth changes—volcanoes and earthquakes.

Listen to your intuition August 16 through November 28, 2012.
Saturn trine (is about 120 degrees from) Neptune makes this a great time for having your intuition and psychic abilities be useful for you. Pay attention to what your instincts are telling you.
These two planets in a positive relationship with each other help us have great results when we join hard work, creativity and inspiration together.

Good news for education, communication and travel.
Jupiter is in Gemini where it will remain for months. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune. Gemini is the sign of education, communication, travel, neighbors and siblings. Jupiter brings the opportunities, but we must do our part.

Astrology Forecast for
October 1 through 15, 2012

A lot to sort through during the next two weeks. The planets are busy and so are we. Use the good periods and pay attention to what kinds of activities to avoid during the more challenging periods.

Don’t be deceived October 1 through 9, 2012.
With Venus, the planet of love and money, opposite Neptune, the planet of confusion and deception during this time, we may not have all the facts or may be easily confused or deceived in relationships or in money matters. This is not a good time to buy items you do not need.

Hunker down and get to work October 1 through 10, 2012.
Mercury and Saturn are close to each other now, making this a good time to get hard tasks completed. Expect delays in traveling and reaching people.

Anger over others’ beliefs October 1 through 14, 2012.
With hot-tempered Mars square (about 90 degrees from) Neptune, the planet that is associated with beliefs, this is an especially bad time to discuss politics or religion with anyone. This is true on all levels, between individuals, between factions within a country or between countries.

Great for creativity and inspiration October 2 through 9, 2012.
Mercury trine (is about 120 degrees from) Neptune makes this a wonderful time for all kinds of creative pursuits and having inspired ideas. Saturn being a part of this configuration helps bring those pursuits and ideas into reality.

Great for love, sex, buying and selling October 4 through 14, 2012.
Venus trine Pluto brings opportunity for great relationships and financial dealings, including buying and selling.

Excellent for rebuilding starting October 5, 2012 and for the next two years.

Cultivate patience from September 14 through October 12, 2012.

Go with the flow of the universe

Astrology Forecast for
September 16 through 30, 2012

Using the flow of the universe helps your live your life purpose and do what is yours to do. Why try to paddle upstream when you can float in comfort to get where you want to go?
The following is for the world as a whole and may affect an individual differently according to where the planets were at his or her birth time and place.

Major transformations February 27, 2012 through June 13, 2015.
Uranus and Pluto are so far from the Sun that they take a long time to go around the Sun and through the signs of the zodiac. When they form angles with other outer planets, those aspects are in effect for a long time. Uranus squares Pluto (is about 90 degrees from) for more than three years, forming an underlying background for the other planetary aspects.
We will not notice their effect every day of this period, but we will notice major changes that can be attributable to these planets. Uranus brings the unpredictable, the unusual and the eccentric. It is a very freedom-loving planet and it can be rebellious and strong-willed.
Uranus also rules technology, including the Internet, so it has been very interesting how the Facebook, Twitter and Internet videos have been having a profound influence on what has been happening around the world.
Pluto is explosive, powerful and eliminates what is no longer needed. Uranus is in Aries, a strong and independent sign, and Pluto is in Capricorn, which rules structures, laws and governments.
During this three-year period, we see upheavals, struggles, revolutions, rebellions, unusual weather patterns and abrupt earth changes—volcanoes and earthquakes.

It’s difficult to be respectful and tactful September 17 through 24, 2012.
Mercury, the planet of thought and communication, moves in to oppose (is about 180 degrees from) Uranus and square (is about 90 degrees from) Pluto, adding more stress to the about talked-about aspect of Uranus squaring Pluto. People may fail to respect other people’s ideas and not be willing to be thoughtful and listen to hear what others may have to say. This can be an obsessive, judgmental and tactless time. Sigh, just what the world needs.
Since Mercury also corresponds to travel, guard against excessive speed, not paying attention, accidents and the unexpected while walking or driving.

Listen to your intuition August 16 through November 28, 2012.
Saturn trining (is about 120 degrees from) Neptune makes this a great time for having your intuition and psychic abilities be useful for you. Pay attention to what your instincts are telling you.
These two planets in a positive relationship also bring great results when we join hard work, creativity and inspiration together.

Positive changes with love and relationships September 7 through 18, 2012.
The planet of love and relationships, Venus, is in a great trine (is about 120 degrees from) the planet of excitement and change, Uranus. It’s a great time to be with loved ones and friends and spice up your life by doing what you never thought you would do before.

Cultivate patience from September 14 through October 12, 2012.
Venus squaring (is about 90 degrees from) Mars can mean we are impatient with others, with ourselves and with our lives in general. Hey, this time period can help us memorize the Serenity Prayer.

Great for writing, studying and traveling September 23 through 30, 2012.
Just as Mercury leaves the hard aspects talked about just above, it forms a terrific trine (about 120 degrees) to Jupiter, making us more philosophical and optimistic. We can choose uplifting thoughts and words, to ourselves and to others. This is a great time to write, study and travel.

Get rid of clutter from 9:45 a.m., Central Daylight Time, September 18, 2012 through 11:33 a.m. Central Daylight Time, September 20, 2012.
Many people have been telling me that they have been using the times that the Moon is in Scorpio to get rid of clutter and it helps. The Moon is in Scorpio during these two days, and that means it is a good time to get rid of what no longer serves you, from those old coupons in your junk drawer to anyone whose negativity dampens your spirits or who is mean spirited.

Good news for education, communication and travel.
Jupiter is in Gemini where it will remain for months. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune. Gemini is the sign of education, communication, travel, neighbors and siblings. Jupiter brings the opportunities, but we must do our part.
