About this blog:

  • I am proud to say that I studied with renowned Astrologer Isabel M. Hickey in Boston, Mass., during the early 1970s. I was part of her "Friday night Fix" meditation group, at B.U.

will keep trying to figure it out. darn it. wanted to place here what I had in my word processor, but can’t do it. so am writing this (below) right now. more tedious but fun because I am allowing my inner Guidance to direct me in the moment.

which of course is always my personal goal. some don’t realize that Astrology is a very complex science/intuitive art form based 100% on mathematics. I flunked math many times in junior high and high school and had to go to summer school to make up for it or had tutors to help me learn it. now my life is full of math. who would’ve thunk it? not my mother or father, that’s for sure.ha ha. in fact before computers were popular we astrologers had to do the math including logirythmns. that was very difficult. in fact I can’t even spell it, as you can see. any way...........moving right along.........  sliding scale available. also find me on knox village soup or free press online


January 19 (today) Mercury the planet which rules communications is in a fine aspect (60 degrees called a “sextile”) with Neptune in Pisces. This is especially positive because Neptune is “happy” to be in Pisces as it is a co-ruling planet of Pisces so acts out joyfully here. Mercury and Neptune in a positive aspect means that your Higher Self -your Divine Self (we all have ONE) is guiding you and directing you today if you are listening in. You may find you are spouting wisdom that you did not know you had! You may find you are more compassionate, patient and calm with others who might normally be annoying to you. those of you who know you are musical and artistic will find this day to stimulate your creative juices and maybe you end up writing a song or the song writes through you more easily than usually. that’s fun. I think artists would love this energy, too, or poets or those who write lyrics with musicians. The Sun will enter Aquarius at 10:10 p.m. until February 18. while the Sun is in Aquarius we tend to look more to the future and how can humanity survive and what kind of inventions need to come forth? are you inventive? go for it, if so, and allow an invention to seek your mind and move on to be manifested, then get it patented and it will help all of us. I’m very interested in Nikola Tesla’s free energy devices. I am envisioning one on EVERYBODY’s roof top across the earth! hey why not? oil drilling? no way. coal? no way free energy the time has come. with the Sun in Aquarius we are all about stopping the ridiculous idea of drilling offshore and there is a big meeting coming up on Monday, January 22 at the Augusta Civic Center I’ve read,  from 3-7 p.m. seems important to me. how ‘bout you?


January 20 from 1:45-3:45 p.m. the Moon in Pisces will be conjunct (close together) Neptune also in Pisces which makes us all more sensitive, emotionally reactive or responsive!  and vulnerable to being influenced by those with strong opinions. Listen but don’t make any decisions during this phase. You may also feel the Presence of a loved one, who has passed away, this aspect brings about mediumship abilities. You may know what others are feeling as your psychic ability is stronger now. From 4:20-6:20 p.m. the Moon in Pisces is in a comfortable aspect with Mercury which is in Capricorn. Communications are flowing with ease. Did you know that there are no planets retrograde until March 8th? This is unusually good and supportive of forward momentum.

January 21 from 6:15-8:15 p.m. the Moon still in Pisces, is in a positive aspect with Mars will bring physical energy which is great for partnership- cooperative efforts and projects plus increases sexual/romantic energy.

January 22 from 6:41 until 8:41 a.m. the Moon in Aries (now) will be in a challenging aspect to Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect can bring about negative fearful thoughts so be vigilant and don’t let those thoughts disturb your peace. They’re just thoughts. that’s all they are. Remember John (Lennon) said-  “There are no problems only solutions.”  sure you & I  say, he had tons of money so could fix anything. Well, somehow it seems with a positive outlook everything does seem to work out for the best even if we don’t think so at the moment- so hold onto THAT thought because it’s based on Divine Truth! by the way Saturn is in Capricorn now for approximately 2  1/2 years. whoa. That began on December  20th  2017. Saturn stays in Capricorn until December 17. 2020.  Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn, so is well placed here, happens once every 29 + years. This will bring about “karma”... Donald Trump will have a tough time from 2/2/2018 - 12/22/2018. I’ve studied his chart. stay tuned.


January 23 from 8:20 a.m. until 1:45 p.m. the Moon in Aries will uncomfortably aspect Mercury and also Pluto. Communications break down and you end up feeling frustrated and irritable. pay attention to this warning to avoid an unpleasant time of it.

I hope I remember that I said this and “don’t try to push the boulder up the mountain.” sometimes I forget to read what I wrote! duh.  From 9:15-11:15 p;.m. the Moon will be conjunct Uranus both in Aries. wow. Intuition is strong- comes in a flash of knowingness. it can also bring about sudden upsets. so be prepared. Mercury is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and nicely aspecting Jupiter in Scorpio, which brings about deep insights on a psychological level, also increases humor...Good time for therapy session.Good also for journal wriitng or writing the novel you have been planning to write. go for it, with no planets retrograde this is the time to get things going. don’t hold back now.


January 24 Mercury is still conjunct Pluto and nicely aspecting Jupiter- until midnight. great for studying and going deeply into the subject you’re fascinated by. can be good for communicating with someone about ind depth subjects. also could bring about hidden info that the media is happy to report maybe Trump is exposed (more). Maybe more info comes out about him and the prostitute- maybe they just had coffee together? or maybe he told her about Russia ?


January 25 from 2-4 p.m. the Moon now in Taurus, will nicely aspect Saturn in Capricorn bringing about patience and good concentration! also there is no way to correct spelling here. please forgive me if there are  “typos!”

January 26 Mars enters the fiery sign of Sagittarius at 7:57 a.m. until Match 17... which is philosophical, clever, funny and can be scattered. With mars now in “Sag.” watch yourself don’t take on too many projects or too much work, you may find your self scattered doing too much.You may may find yourself feeling more optimistic. It’s time to plan... or go on vacation! Be adventurous and try new things.


January 31 Full Moon takes place at 8:27 a.m. with the Moon at 11 degrees of Leo directly opposite the Sun at 11 degrees of Aquarius. The focus is on how can we contribute to the future of healing the opiate issue? When you read the local court news it’s clearly a concern that “our brothers and sisters” are having trouble with drugs. There are options to help, but the person must want help or it does not work, I’m told. I’ve always thought that those who become addicted are sensitive psychic Souls who cannot deal with the harshness of this reality, the world of war, hate and prejudice. Truth is that there are many many people who are indeed.........kind ,generous, thoughtful. considerate and caring! Meanwhile the psych unit at Pen Bay is always full. We need more rehab centers with loving qualified people to help those in need who want help to start or re-start their recovery process. Support is necessary. This area has huge loyal people to the 12 step meetings, we are strong here in Maine in AA and NA and Alanon. I see this Full Moon as igniting new processes to help our “brothers & sisters.” It also focuses on observing our thoughts and shifting out of old patterns of prejudice. Trump is a perfect example to get us to look at our own thoughts! he is a catalyst. 


January 31 Mercury leaves practical Capricorn, and now enters Aquarius which is intuitive, dreamy, visionary and innovative, and can be a loner! I’m hoping that this position of Mercury gets stimulating creative conversations moving and we benefit from listening well to one another. Mercury enters Aquarius at 8:40 a.m. until February 17 at 11:28 p.m. Do pay close attention to your intuition. Maybe it’s time to learn more about what socialism is?


Remember there are no planets retrograde at this time until March 8 at 11:46 p.m This is an extraordinary phase, it happens each year around this time but this year it is lasting a little bit longer!!!


February 2 until December 21, 2018 Saturn will be in a challenging aspect to Trump’s natal Neptune in Libra and also to his Mercury in Cancer. I suspect there will be a problem with a family member which will cause him to resign this year. His wife may decide to divorce him if he hasn’t paid her enough, surely she’s had enough...we saw that when she pushed his hand away ...when he went to hold hands with her, do you remember that?
