CELESTIAL FORECAST FOR SPRING 2018
APRIL, MAY AND JUNE
Ready for a Change
I am changing up how the celestial forecast will be presented. When I step back and look at past postings, I realize the monthly horoscope is so basic, it is really useless. While it is entertaining it is not presenting the reader with enough information to truly provide guidance for a 30 day period. After all, a chart is more than a rising sign and a few transits, it is a snapshot of what you planned to accomplish in this life. The challenges, the gifts and the periods of time when certain circumstances are most likely to occur. It is a map of the soul's journey, which direction you take is entirely up to you and how you exercise your free will. As an astrologer, I point out many things you already know.
They confirm your experiences and how they mold your perceptions of your reality. We all know our perceptions create our reality. I also bring to your attention how you can perceive yourself differently to enhance your experience on the Earth plane. Your future is being created right now. Astrology can provide you with possibilities. It really depends how well you have learned from lessons past that prepare you for the ease or difficulty of transits now. I receive many requests from women to answer one question for them. When will I meet the man I am going to marry? I cannot answer that question for you. I can say when the possibility of meeting someone will be more likely than another time. With this in mind, I will provide the reader with a timeline of celestial events which will be informative and you may tune in with these energies as they occur. All Celestial Bodies give off a frequency of energy that is unique. All you have to do is to listen and be receptive to the energy.
