Cosmic Chronicle – August 2012

Summer is quickly coming to a close for those who are living in the Northern hemisphere. Days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer. Many communities are advertising their annual fairs, feasts, and festivals. Families are wrapping up summer activities and beginning to prepare for the new school year ahead. Mother Nature is also signaling the end of the season with her bounty of ripened fruits and vegetables.  This year, the first harvest, Lammas/Lughnasadh, falls on August 1st in Aquarius.

Cosmically, August is beginning with a much needed reprieve from the chaos, calamity and change since January. Aquarius is an Air Sign, which means that we will become conscious of how others see us. We may not physically accomplish much this month, but, we will continue our path of enlightenment. Air Signs; Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra, are the cerebral giants of the zodiac. Creativity, logistics, inspiration, imagination, ideas, and complex details are boundless fuel for that group. A Full Moon always carries intense energy and when one falls in an Air Sign, the wheels of mental reflection, inspiration, and evaluation rotate on a higher plane of consciousness.

Thankfully, the Mercury Retrograde that began on July 14th has been a mild one, although as it turns direct; August 7th – 8th could ruffle some feathers in the areas of transportation, communication, or commerce, nothing trivial! However, that momentary disruption will dissipate on August 9th.   

August 13th-17th is a period which could unexpectedly unhinge relationships, finances, and our sense of security as the planet Venus crosses the unsettling Uranus-Pluto Square. Hiding under a bed may not be practical, but, it may help! Fortunately a cosmic clean-up crew will arrive with the New Moon, in the Fire Sign, Leo, on August 17th – 19th

Mercury and Uranus will amplify energies giving us a sudden jolt of uninhibited euphoria over the weekend of August 18th – 19th which could cause us to do or say something that we may deeply regret later. On August 20th, we will begin the process of switching gears from the planning and thinking phase into action and reality mode.

The Sun enters the Earth Sign, Virgo, on August 22nd.  Many will anxiously anticipate the amplified and long-lasting energy generated by our second Full Moon. Get out your candles, crystals and magick wands! This Blue Moon will be in the incredibly mystical Water Sign, Pisces; August 31st – September 2nd. Many will be ready to set into motion and manifest their hopes, dreams, wishes, or goals. While others may find themselves feeling mentally scrambled and physically overwhelmed by the intense swirling energy.

Labor Day weekend will officially end summer in the Northern Hemisphere. After a sneak preview of September’s cosmic coming attractions; it may not be a bad idea to stock your pantry with Tylenol and Prilosec, you may need them.

Cosmic Chronicle – June 2012

June 2012


Second verse, same as the first! Yes, June begins with more chaos, mayhem and calamity. Relationships will continue to suffer significant challenges until Venus goes direct on June 27.  As more hidden truths are revealed, we will continue to systematically sort out our lives, letting go of everything and anything that we do not need, especially from the past. Radical change has always been a bitter pill to swallow. And, it’s very hard to move forward when we are gripped with irrational fears, especially of the unknown.

An eclipse is always powerful, and packed with long term change. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse on June 4 is no different. We will discover that it’s often much easier to remain co-dependent on others, than it is to unconditionally love ourselves. In comparison to the therapy of a 12 Step Program, the Lunar Eclipse will usher in a feeling or need for forgiveness. Consciously dealing with false pride will challenge many egos during this intense time. So, choose your battles wisely, lest you find yourself eating humble pie!

There is very good news, however! Whatever you were doing on or around November 30, 2010 will begin to materialize after June 1! As a point of reference; if you happen to be a pregnant Elephant, Rhino, or Sperm Whale, you will be ecstatically looking forward to the birth of your calf! LOL!

Father’s Day is June 17, and the New Moon in Cancer will be June 19. The longest day of the year; the Summer Solstice, marks the official first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. June 20 is going to be eventful because the Sun will enter the water sign of Cancer, too. There will be a brief respite when Venus goes direct on June 27. “How long is the respite going to be,” you ask cautiously. Count the days and finish whatever communication or commerce projects you’re working on. Mercury goes Retrograde July 15 – August 8.  Are we having fun yet? LOL!

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me, or write a comment on my blog. I love to hear from you! And please, add your website link to our exchange links page. It’s free, and we all know that nothing ventured, nothing gained. LOL! If you would like a category that isn’t listed, I will happily add it for you, just let me know.

Cosmic Chronicle – May 2012

Cosmic ChronicleThe first week of May gave us a brief moment of much needed homeostasis. But, we instinctively know that all good things must come to an end; as does the calm before a storm.

On May 5, a Scorpio Full Moon will once again accelerate the familiar roar of momentum which will push us through; much like the infamous words from Convoy, C.W. McCall, 1978, “We shot the line and went for broke with a thousand screamin’ trucks, so, we crashed the gate doin’ 98, let them truckers roll! 10-4!”

Now, get out the Tylenol, Prozac, and Xanax. The intense energy explosion on May 5 – 9 could flare road rage, erratic behaviors, and temper outbursts, which will hang-on until Mother’s Day, May 13. One would do well to consider a strenuous physical activity during this time; like digging a hole to China, building an Egyptian pyramid, renovating a Greek Pantheon, or swimming across the English Channel.

For those that successfully make it through these two weeks from hell, you will be cosmically rewarded with five fun filled days of renewed self-confidence, vigor, vitality, and the Midas touch. Yes, a grand trine is coming in on May 13, where its direct beneficial effects may linger until the 17th; indirectly until the Solar Eclipse on May 20.

Venus goes retrograde in Gemini on May 15 – June 27. Essentially, our only saving grace is that she will rest in a positive aspect to Saturn, the task master; ruler of restrictions and opposition. A Venus retrograde always directs us inward, emphasizing relationships; especially jointly held finances.

Gemini is the sign of logical intellect and the process for rational thinking. So, the energy from this Venus retrograde will direct our conscious minds to areas that we normally avoid like the plague, including an internal evaluation of our actions and values.

Within hours after the Sun enters the air sign of Gemini on May 20, we’ll get blasted full force with a Gemini New Moon and Full Solar Eclipse, which will forcibly elevate our consciousness up another octave. Are we having fun yet?   

The ancients revered and feared the powerful and long felt effects that both a Lunar and a Solar Eclipse championed. We are here to witness the old and tired system of materialism, power, greed and corruption move into shadow, and the dawn of a new age.

As we close the month with Memorial Day weekend, many may find themselves torn; i.e., should I go back to work, or call in? It will also prompt us to avoid verbal confrontations. Perhaps it would prove less stressful to make a list of any topics of conversation which may become intense. And, put the list on a back burner until after May 31.

In response to your question; will this infernal roller coaster ever stop? The late Jerry Reed left us with these appropriate words of wisdom, “We’ve a long ways to go, and a short time to get there!”

Normally, I would end the Chronicle with that quote, but, today I must add a footnote:

Every month, for the last several years, I’ve been using Hotmail to conveniently deliver the Chronicle. As you know, I’m the designated poster child for the technically challenged. “Keep it simple, stupid,” is my motto! All that I’ve ever wanted to do is write and distribute a well written, informative monthly newsletter, primarily for the layman. I admit that I’m not the brightest bulb in the box, but, I do know that people appreciate insight which may help them with their choices and options. We instinctively know that timing can mean everything. For instance, how many times have you said or heard these five words, “When the time is right?”

I have tried for a very long time to avoid this, mainly because I did not want the hassle, and I truly did not want to inconvenience anyone. But, it appears that I cannot independently add names and email addresses to my program’s encrypted newsletter manager. So, I must ask you to take a moment and subscribe if you wish to continue on my broom-to-door delivery route. (So far, I haven’t broken any windows!)

While you’re there, you may also want to submit the information for your web site. Nothing ventured, nothing gained… and it’s FREE! LOL! 

If you have any comments, questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
