Thanks to one and all for sending in your queries regarding your life changes (and the changes of those in your life), and the increasing awareness of well, ah, awareness! For those who’ve had their questions answered (whether or not those answers have been posted on this page) I thank you for your responses regarding your readings.
Again, I wish to congratulate those who’ve responded to my Q&A readings with a new attitude about their lives. We’re all in this together. Know time like the present and life becomes a gift.
Elaine, I lost my job in June 2008 and living in Michigan, the prospects are not encouraging. I’m optimistic that I’ll return to a reasonable life of prosperity at some point. I don’t need much to be happy, but the layoff I went through in 2005 (yes, another one) wiped out my retirement so I’d like to return to gainful employment.
I seem to be running up against the ‘you’re overqualified’ thing, so can you see when I might be able to find work so I can get off the unemployment rolls? I’m almost at 13 weeks of the 26 weeks allowed.
In case you need this information, birthdate is 08/18/60 at 1:42 PM in Detroit, Michigan.
Thanks! Looking forward to your answer.
All right let’s take a look at your energy. You’re a Leo Sun, Scorpio Rising, Cancer moon. This combo is filled with feeling and independence. So this must be an especially difficult situation. But let’s see your way out of it.
The core of your information is about your self worth and the overqualified stigmata you’re being branded with is a self fulfilling prophecy. I know that sounds crazy. How could you search for work and sabatoge yourself all at once?
Deep down, Donna, your energy is saying, “Prove it. Prove it that you can be independent. Go ahead, prove it.” Self-sabotage is not anything new in the human psyche. You keep making yourself pay for not being perfect.
That it annoys you at all that you have to be here on Earth, but moreover that you’re going to prove to yourself that you are not as profound on this Earth as you are in spirit form. I don’t make this stuff up, my friend.
What was the one thing you learned from your father about independence? You have to do it all yourself. That’s the only way it’s going to get done. What kind of support did you get from your mother in the way of being feminine? not much, I feel or if she gave it , you rejected it.
You need to allow yourself to receive. Write on a piece of paper a million times if you have to—It’s safe to receive. You’re very used to being a giver and a doer, now you have to receive and it sucks…you’re on the government bread line and it feels like crap. But this is the extreme to receiving…you can receive from yourself each day by being kind to yourself. by allowing yourself to be feminine…softer…not so tough on yourself.
Then sit down each day, twice a day minimum and be still. inhale, exhale and feel yourself being given things…presents, love, affection, smile at how many people are ready and willing to help you… receive them.
Then see yourself in a job situation that gives you great pleasure. One where you’re able to feel productive and useful and where you are compensated generously for your efforts. See this visual each day. Feel what it feels like to receive it. Then do the practical thing and apply for jobs.
Take the thought away that you’re over qualified. Form follows thought and surprise…you didn’t know you believed that you were overqualified really, I mean you know how smart and productive you are, but you didn’t know how overqualified you were until people started using that as a reason for not hiring you. See yourself being EXACTLY qualified for a position that you’d love to have and how much they’d love to have you. Increase your self worth and receive and you’ve got the pick of at least 3 or 4 jobs.
Be well. I hope this helps.
I’m a Leo Sun with a Saggie Ascendant. DOB 08/12/65.,
Toronto Ontario, 4pm. Am a single parent of two teenagers that recently graduated from massage therapy, BUT I haven’t passed the registration exam yet. With the last few years being everything and the kitchen sink, will there be an end to the tunnel?
Uranus is opposite Merc retro, + Saturn/Pluto opposition squares my Natal Saturn and Pluto.
I don’t mean to sound thick but what do you mean “do you have any arrows?” I have never been in this kind of debt before, and it’s still costing me. Any info will greatly assist in keeping my sanity.
K D Toronto
A~ Dearest KD,
It sounds like you’re going through just about enough! Take a deep breath and let’s take a look.
First, for those who didn’t get a chance to read the May Sagittarius AstroCast, I wrote–
~So the Sagittarian walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “Got any arrows?”
And the bartender says, “This is a bar, palie. Not a trading post.”
And the Sagittarius says, “Got any arrows?”
And the bartender is incredulous. “I told you. NO! You want me to throw your ass outta here?”
And the Sagittarian says, “Got any arrows?”
And the bartender slams his hands down on the bar with an outraged look on his face. He glares at the Sagittarian and points to the door.
And the Sagittarian says, “Got any arrows?” And the bartender flies over the bar and grabs the Sagittarian by the collar and screams at him, “GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE!” and pushes him to the ground.
And the Sagittarian is shocked and says, “What the hell is YOUR problem?” and under his breath he mutters all sorts of debasing accusations about the bartender.—end of story.
And now you’re frowning and shaking your head, “What the hell does that mean?”
It’s really quite simple. If you continue with the same demeanor, the same speech, the same intention, you’ll get the same response out of life.
To the more aware Sagittarians I’ll say this—Somewhere between May 15 and July’s end, at least one person will approach you and ask, “Got any arrows?”
Now there’s a switch. Or is it?~
All right. The arrow metaphor is all about your self-judgments. “Got any arrows?” means…where are your self-judgments?
You are who you are. Because of who you are you will attract others to you to point out a limitation on your part. Where in you do you keep repeating the same pattern that results in the same or negative outcomes? Where in your unconscious self are you self-defeating? Where within you do you harbor a resentment or an energy that says, “I’ll never get what I want?”
This is what we need to find in order to get to the bottom of where you store your internal arrows. Once you find those pointy judgments, you can let them go. Upon releasing them or at least finding them, life magically alters.
What you attracted from your personal arrow was ‘failing’ a massage registration exam.
Let’s look at your chart for a second.
With Transiting Pluto in your 1st house of personality, it’s a clear sign of Identity change. Some call it a ‘crisis,’ but altering your personality doesn’t have to be a crisis.
Transiting Pluto squares your Natal Saturn in your 4th house of home, feminine parent, and true inner self.
An Astrological square is an uncomfortable experience. It’s akin to sitting on a jagged box until you say, “Hey, what is this? Why am I sitting on something uncomfortable and why don’t I do something about it?”
Your attention has been gotten. Great. Let’s move on.
As I write this (in early June), Neptune has just moved out of your 2nd house of Money and Self Worth and into the 3rd house of Education, Siblings, and Communication.
On June 20, it retrogrades back into the self-worth financial house. Neptune represents the parts of us that are EITHER addictive, unrealistic, OR dedicated to spirituality and healing. When Neptune is around, we have a harder time being practical. We don’t always know what is illusion and what is our Truth.
This information might be too much for those not interested in the mechanics of Astrology. BUT HEAR THIS…
When Neptune orbits around the heavens and ‘transits’ into your house of money and self worth IT IS A BIG DEAL.
Wherever you put your time, energy, money, or any other resource, HAS TO, that is, MUST COINCIDE with your Soul’s agenda or you will lose…time, energy, money, and any other resource. This applies to everyone.
If you are following your true path, you may lose some money, but it will come back because you’ve gained inner knowledge and wisdom about your Truth.
And so, from June 20, 2002, to January 31, 2003, Neptune will make it’s final pass through your Astrological house of Money and Self Worth.
During that time it’s imperative that you state your intention each day with reverence. Begin your day with a humble meditation ALREADY THANKING YOUR DIVINE SOURCE FOR YOUR BLESSINGS AND WORK AND CASH (whatever). Thank in advance and you tell yourself that you trust that your needs are met. And then it’s merely a matter of ‘time’ before your needs are met…AS YOU MOVE TOWARD YOUR GOAL WITH PRACTICAL APPLICATION. Remember to exercise patience on your path.
Every action, word, dollar spent must reflect your values. And if you lose as a result of those actions, then the message is clear….YOU ARE NOT WALKING AND TALKING YOUR TRUTH.
Here’s an example:
A client (Sagittarius Rising) had Neptune transit her house of money. At that time she was writing for one television show and making a huge amount of money. Her dream and practical application in the past 7 years has been to write her own thing. Last year, she had the opportunity to write her own thing for another network. However, she’d lose the big salary as a compromise. She had major expenses and was apprehensive to leave the big salary. But she realized that this was what she had worked toward. It took a year of even more work and sweat to make her own thing happen. And it did, she got her own television show! She didn’t stop there. She examined her relationship to SECURITY and SELF VALUES via acupuncture, counseling, intimate conversation, and most of all, a COMMITMENT to changing her patterns.
I’m changing the focus for a second. Transiting Saturn is also squaring your Natal Saturn in the 4th house. But wait, there’s more. Transiting Saturn and Transiting Pluto are also squaring your Natal Pluto in your 10th house of Career (and masculine parent).
For those who need visual aid, what this looks like is a big fat square. This gigantic square involves your feminine and masculine sides, your personal identity, and your relationship to any type of partner (marital, business, the public).
So, now, how do we apply this to a practical situation?
Ah, the plop thickens. Let’s keep stirring!
These four little squares that make the one big square ask one thing of you– to lose a pattern that involves your feminine and masculine sides, your giving and receiving abilities, and your extreme nature.
An easier way to look at this is to view your parents. They represent your feminine and masculine sides. Your parents were at odds (or one of them was non-existent!) leaving your impression of balance…off balance.
In your home, you experienced limitations and power struggles that still exist within you.
Imagine having to take a test for your father and mother. How would you feel? What kind of comments would they be making before, during, and after your exam?
Where in you are you disabled at the thought of failure?
Within the next year and less, I see two open doors for you to take all this information in, in a more practical way.
1.) You will have the opportunity to move your inner energy by exploring core energetic work or something akin to that modality. Go deep. Think about the work you do. What is your goal? In order to be…BE…a body worker, it’s more than knowing anatomy and technique. Your purpose is to CONNECT with the world (or the demographic of your choice) on all levels. You have to expose yourself in all sorts of ways to understand your vulnerable self in order to know how to help someone else. You are developing your intuitive nature. This is big stuff. And if you’re in this line of work solely for the money, you will sustain a loss. If you believe you can offer healing without having healed, you will sustain a loss.
But the loss doesn’t mean losing money or something tangible. You might lose the patterns that perpetuate financial loss. That’s pretty darn deep!
I know that not having money is scary. Let me ask you something. Will you starve? I mean consider this carefully and apply it in meditation. If you had no job, what would you do? If your answer does not include asking for help, then you’ve got to explore your relationship to your dad. You are so very hard on yourself to excel, yet you don’t acknowledge yourself. Who else in your life does not acknowledge you? If you don’t acknowledge you, then no one else will.
Your defensive nature is getting in your own way. Resentment, lack, melancholy outlooks, woe is me, major impatience, solo performances, melodramatic expression, scattered thoughts, tough it out…attitudes are in your unconscious self gumming up the works. That’s not who you really are. So, then. Who are you?
You are kind, generous, energetic, knowledgeable, optimistic, too. You are an educator of higher principles and healing. Establishing yourself in your own Career in order to work with the public is your ultimate joy. But with whom do you share and allow to enter your sensitive self? How can anyone help you if you don’t begin to trust in your self? (and you are not alone!) Find a healing group. Share. Allow the entire group to surround you and give to you. You’ll burst into tears upon being overwhelmed with so much receiving. This is an extreme example of what’s needed here.
2.) Jupiter blesses your awareness very soon, Dear One. In September, you’ll have another opportunity to work, and I mean physically work for cash and work on yourself, too. You also receive a financial gift that helps you through a tough time. And in 18 months, you’re well on your way to earning and paying off debt. Keep a dream journal and record all images. Your unconscious self is about to open up and spill the beans, Jack. All you have to do is face the giant, grab the golden goose, and live happily ever after.
Just remember that we’re all connected to our Divine Source. All we have to do is tap into it and learn how to RECEIVE. Meditate every day! Meditation creates awareness. Within that space, you can eliminate the negatives and fill that space with LIGHT.
Hope this helps. Thanks for your email.
Q~ I am a Leo (aug 19th 1967 born around 5 pm).
My wife is Libra (oct 16 / 1972–11.47 am).
We both were born in bombay / maharashtra / india.
We hope towards some bright light in our life when can we have a child? It is 5 yrs. after marriage.
A~ Dearest R.W.,
if you’re not already expecting then there seems to be a bit of a lag time with the upcoming child.
According to Leo dad’s chart, you have a Sun in Leo in the 8th house of JOINT RESOURCES and RECEIVING. (and a Capricorn rising). A new partnership is created or born and/or an existing marriage moves to a deeper level. It does not solely signify conception or birth, however. It would have helped more to have your actual names for me to read your Soul’s agendas. We could be looking at a new business opportunity for either of you. Perhaps the two of you decide to proceed in a different way, as a couple, with new goals.
As we continue on the same timeline for Libra mom, Sun in the Astrological house of CAREER, (Capricorn Rising, too), we see that You, too are in line for receiving ‘something’ wonderful.
In Libra Mom’s chart, though, her Soul’s agenda does not point to having many children as a way for her total Soul to grow in this lifetime. She is here to establish herself in a career and with a commitment that relates more to guiding her talents toward working with people and for people MORE THAN being a mother. Health care, the arts, metaphysics, and people management are more her forte.
This doesn’t mean that she won’t have a child, however. One child at most appears to be the theme of the clients and friends I know who have their Sun placed in the 10th house of Career.
When a Spirit decides it’s time to place itself in human form, that Spirit has it’s own Agenda. And this, sometimes, we cannot see.
Now, Libra mom has her Saturn (structure, discipline, and limits) in the Astrological house of health. It’s quite possible that this person’s body is not gearing itself toward conception naturally.
If becoming pregnant requires a medical procedure or years of helping the body adapt to a more fertile environment for a baby, then there it is. At the time of this reading, Libra is having a Saturn return. She has Saturn in Gemini. When Saturn returns to its original position, there is weeding out to do. And since Libra has Saturn in the Astrological house of health and work, it may very well be that Libra’s body needs to be redefined before a baby can exist in her womb. She is also under a great deal of pressure to ‘perform.’ That can mean she’s unconsciously feeling guilty or ill prepared to PRODUCE something of value either at work or regarding baby making. Whatever stresses Libra feels at work or within her own mind creates a more sterile or limiting environment all around. And NO, this doesn’t meant that it’s Libra’s fault or that she is barren! Let’s not go to a demeaning position that has put women in the ‘sin’ category for eons!
Libra has to decide if she truly desires a baby. She may not and IT’S ALL RIGHT. Not everyone is here on this Earth to have a child. Let’s keep the pressure off of the Libra mom in all areas and let’s look at the moment where you two can sit together with true INTIMACY and discuss your present position regarding children.
If the two of you are truly nesting and both desire a child, then sit together in honest INTIMACY and welcome a spirit into your lives. (and then have fun while procreating!)
Patience is definitely necessary in any case.
Take extra good care of your bodies. Relax your minds. Make a space that is filled with love, healing, and joy in your house, bodies, minds, as you invite this new spirit into your lives.
Let us know how it all works out. Thanks for your query.
My name is Vinodtha –my date of birth 28/07/1962 born in
Johannesburg, South Africa I think about 5.45a.m.The last couple of years has been very traumatic for me.I would like to know if there will be major changes in my life in the next year.
Thanks for your email.
You’re a Leo Sun, Cancer Rising, with a Gemini Moon.
Yes, it’s been tough. I’m so sorry to hear and see this. There is something you need to do for yourself and that’s to use your full name. It carries an energy that is asking to be fulfilled. You have some karma that is in need of balancing. Now, karma is not good or bad. Karma is the balancing of energy in our lives. When you begin to use Vinodtha, you’ll activate the final phase of your karma and finally be done with it.
I don’t know if you’ve been sued or if you are in the process of suing someone, but the energy I feel is an old debt to be paid. Life is not about money, but you made sure to build a reminder about an old debt into your life in case you forgot to remember something….THAT LIFE IS NOT ABOUT MONEY.
What’s important here is your worth. If something is worth it to you, then by all mean, put in your time, yoru energy, your resources into that person or situation. But make sure that it reflects a value of yours.
Values are something that you would live your life by.
Honesty, patience, willingness to change, Divine foundation are some of my values. For the next year of 2004, you’ll be engaged in worth issues that deal with money and your health.
If you are robbed, see it as an unconscious belief in you that life is not enough. This thought is a lie. But yet, you continue to live by it. If you no longer value this belief, then replace it with something more valuable like—MY NEEDS ARE MET.
If you rely upon someone who cheats or betrays you in some way, then where are your boundaries? Value healthy boundaries, too. If you spend more time blaming others or feeling sorry for yourself, you’ll not get past the situation at hand.
Your life NEEDS TO CHANGE. So help it along. Start with a new philosophy that supports all of life. If you put a certain energy out into the world, know that that particular energy will come back to you.
Do you best to alter your beliefs as you reevaluate your financial situation and balance your ‘debts’ on all levels.
You are not a victim, yet your energy and your beliefs support the victim role. A new communication between your conscious and unconscious mind needs to take place. Let it happen.
Read the book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert kiyosaki. Read, I come as a Brother, by Bartholemew.
Read, You can heal your life, By Louise Hay.
Know that you are responsible for creating situations, but that doesn’t mean you have to be ‘paying’ for being unaware. Educate yourself on a new awareness that involves saying to your Divine Resource each day, “I only allow what is beneficial to enter.” And know that what enters your life will be most beneficial. Say, “I ask the Divine for a very clear message regarding…” and fill in the blank.
The messages will be clear.
You’re evolving, Vinodtha. You’re learning how to be a much more mature, supported Being on this Earth.
The next few years will be ones that reflect your changes. What you believe on the inside will show itself on the outside. Things may look bizarre at times, but create a faith in PURE CONSCIOUS LOVE that is who we are, and never faulter from that faith.
If you believe you’ll be taken advantage of, then you will. After a while, it’s hard to say which came first—the chicken or the egg….your unconscious belief that you are not enough or the people and situations around you that tell you that you’re not enough.
You came to this life to end your karma. Finish it. And start over. Give a whole lot of love to yourself and know that you are not alone.
Your body reflects the stresses of your life. But that doesn’t mean you can’t heal. You can. Start this moment.
I only allow what is beneficial to enter. I ask the Divine for a very clear message regarding….
And add to it all each day, “I am an extension of the Light. I exist here, now, and everywhere.”
Read the books above. Say your statements and set your intention to be whole again.
Protect your body by feeling things fully and expressing in a healthy way.
Remember, your worth only reflects money. It’s your worth that is a valuable asset!
I wish you the best! Elaine Marolakos Edelson
