The luckiest day of the year is coming up quick, says celebrity astrologer

Lucky Astrology

Not feeling like the gods are with you lately?

Relax. Good tidings could be coming your way.

Many astrologers consider the annual meeting of Jupiter and the sun to be the luckiest day of the year. And it’s coming up soon — Oct. 26. Mark your calendars.

Susan Miller, founder of Astrology Zone, will be in Miami Beach to host an intimate evening in The Spa at EDITION from 4-7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22, sharing her insight on all the zodiac signs. No word if Walter Mercado is going to show.

Tarot & Timing

Most books only share that when you pull one of the Major Arcana cards in the Tarot when approximating the timing of a coming event, it means it’ll happen very soon. So that’s all I went by until I stumbled upon this a few days ago. Granted, I don’t know how accurate it is just yet. But I’ll definitely be putting it to the test. AND… if it’s anywhere near accurate, it’ll be immensely helpful, at least to me. So again, sharing.

Numerology for Your Address – Is Your Home Happy for You?

By Kari Samuels

How to calculate the numerology for your house or apartment:

First, write down the full number of your house or apartment (the number on your door or mailbox).
 Next, add all of the numbers together to find the sum.
Reduce the sum to a single digit.

For instance, if you live in a house that is at 3608 Pine Terrace.
 Your house number is 3608.
 You then add: 3+6+0+8=17.
 Reduce 17 to a single digit: (1+7=8).
If you live in a house 3608 Pine Terrace, you live in an 8 house.

Although your street name or number has an influence, you do not need to add your street name or number to find YOUR house number. You’re looking for what is personal to YOU. So, if you live on 324 7th Avenue,  you would use 324 to find your home numerology (3+2+4 = 9). 324 7th Avenue is a 9 home.

If you live in an apartment, your most influential number is your apartment number, not your building number.
 Let’s say you live at 3608 Pine Terrace, Apt #31. In that case, you calculate the numerology for your apartment number, which is 31.

You add the sum of the numbers 31 (3+1=4). Your apartment is a 4.

Letters have numeric value as well. Use the chart below to determine the numberic value of your apartment letters.

letter-numerology-chart-blue

For example, if you lived in apartment 31C, you would take the numeric value of the letter C (you can find the numeric value of letters in the chart below) and add that to the apartment number.

For apartment 31C  –  add the sum of 31=4, plus the numeric value of C=3.  4+3=7. Apartment 31C is a 7 apartment number.

If you’re having trouble figuring out your numbers, visit this site and type in your address and it’ll do it for you.

If for any reason it is not the energy you desire, for instance, you want it to be more compatible with your life path number, or you want a different influence on your life, you can easily change the vibration by putting another number inside on or near your door (in your home). Make sure you resonate with that number too. Both the number inside your door, and the total sum number it adds to your address can influence the home vibration.

For instance, if you live in a 5 home and would prefer an 8 vibration, you can put a number 3 inside your door and voila! Now you moderated your house vibration to an 8 home, with the influence of 3! But remember, even though you influence the energy by adding a number, the original address has a dominant vibration. Have fun and live it up!

1 Home

1Promotes independence, innovation, ingenuity, ambition, drive and leadership. This is a wonderful home to live in if you are self employed, especially if you work out of your home, or if there are people living together who wish to maintain their autonomy and freedom. Living here can strengthen your character, determination and self-confidence.

Challenges: If you would like to promote cooperation and harmony, the 1 can foster too much independence. If you want to find a partner, or are prone to loneliness, this home can have too much “self” energy and not as much partnering.  Particularly if your home adds up to 19, which is considered a karmic lesson number, you might find yourself feeling unsupported and having too much work. You can easily create more welcoming supportive energy in your home for others by having art that depicts more than one person, animal or object instead of someone or something singular. This also reminds your subconscious that you enjoy the company of others.

Calleen’s Slightly Snarky Astrology Transits for September 2017

By Calleen Wilder

astrology transits september 2017

September 2nd – Mars in Leo trines Uranus in Aries

This is a rather small transit, yet an interesting one.  With the trine involved, we have our energy and our desire for all things new and different playing nicely together.  Meaning, you’re far less likely to settle for “normal and customary” today.

You want to meet new people, try new things, and go on adventures.  You want to explore some of the things you normally might talk yourself out of exploring.  Things that may even propel you towards letting the normally more hidden sides of yourself out to play.

Know too that even if your geek or freak persona appears, it’ll all be done in good taste.  It seems rather automatic that only the appropriate amount of unexpected spice is added, thanks to the trine.  Hence, go out, entertain and engage.  All while allowing others to interact with the most hidden, camouflaged, and yet oddly interesting side of yourself emerge.

Now should someone suggest you remain in your routine I imagine you’ll likely ignore their “two cents worth” entirely.  You want fun, intriguing, and all sorts of surprising self expression.  Who knows, you may even learn something entirely unexpected about yourself.  Things that fear and daily decorum has kept you from discovering.  Go you!

If you must work, at the very least try to do it in a different, more creative way.  Or better still, wait until the work is done, then spend your night diving deep into whatever “strange pool” you’re up for.  Could be fun.  For sure it’ll be enticing.

The Solar Eclipse & You – When an Eclipse Hits the Astrological Houses

Written by Molly Hall

For the upcoming Eclipse you may want to drag out your Personal Natal Chart (Astrology Chart) if you have one. If not, if you have your date, time, and place of birth you can go online to a free Astrology Chart Generating website and get yours. But time is critical. If you don’t know your time of birth, the houses won’t be accurate and the below descriptions won’t really apply.  Yet if you do know your time, the below text is very informative and helpful.  Something definitely worth considering.

Solar Eclipse & You
There can be a jittery buzz of anticipation in the days leading up to a Solar Eclipse. Something meaningful is percolating up from places where the Sun don’t shine, and the blocking out of a constant light source is a symbolic block of familiar ways of being and perceiving.

The lunar eclipse also holds sway. Like the Moon card in the Tarot, it’s a time of chaos or confusion, discovery or rediscovery.

What is there to be absorbed, revealed or remembered?

The solar and lunar eclipses are sometimes disruptive shake-ups, leading to major life events or more subtle inner changes. What’s neat to note is that eclipses run through the Zodiac every 19 years, in what’s called the Saros Cycle. When the eclipse occurs, try to remember what happened to you 19 years ago. Is that core theme playing out again?

DOUBLE ACT

It’s useful to look at Zodiac signs, as well as the transiting houses of the eclipse, as a two-act production also. Since Zodiac signs correspond to a house, their symbolic themes are similar. Here are some notes to get you started, by looking at where the eclipses land in your own chart.

Eclipses go in reverse of the natural Zodiac (Aries to Pisces). You can track themes to become more aware of each eclipse cycle.

FIRST AND SEVENTH HOUSES (OR ARIES-LIBRA)

An eclipse in the first house strongly involves a sense of self.

You may experience a desire to firm up your stance by claiming “I am” with self-defining acts or plans. In more extreme cases, it might mean the end to an entanglement that’s muddled your sense of self. Or perhaps merging lives with another with accompanying fears of losing the self. A challenge here is to balancing personal initiation and identity with meaningful relationships in your life.

Eclipses in the seventh house also affect relationships that weigh heavily on the self. There can be upheavals in these big relationships, ranging from emotional shocks, deepening intimacy, or breaking up. A relationship can be wholly absorbing, until you realize you’ve lost your own defining edges. Some might awaken to the naked truth about what’s been lost or gained by being in cahoots with a close friend, lover, or business associate. Who am I in this relationship? Who will I become?

Overall, themes of an eclipse in the first or seventh house include identity crisis, self-hood, and relationships. This could mean going into a partnership or marriage or having periods of solo retreats.

SIXTH OR TWELFTH HOUSE (OR VIRGO-PISCES)

When there is an eclipse in the sixth house, you are more sensitive to the body either spiritually or physically. This may be a time of accidents, life-threatening illness, or spiritual healing, which can shake you out of a deadening routine and put your life in perspective. By asking yourself questions such as “Is my job missing something?” or “Can I achieve a great connection or purpose?” you will strive for more soulful work and a more engaged life. These changes can either be subtle or in-your-face.

Eclipses in the twelfth house emphasize tending to the soul. You may experience soul messages through vivid dreams or seemingly otherworldly happenings. One outcome of eclipses here is to become aware of something previously veiled. That could include behaviors that you show in the workplace or relationships that have been unconsciously playing out. A breakthrough can be humbling at first, and then lead to being more real and physically present in your life.

In general, sixth of twelfth house eclipses with make you question the minutia and the infinite in your life’s direction.

FIFTH AND ELEVENTH HOUSE (OR LEO-AQUARIUS)

An eclipse in your fifth house will highlight what makes you unique. It could be a wake-up call to seize the day with your creative gifts. You may creatively express yourself alone or in collaboration.

You may experience acknowledging the need for recognition and setting out on a path to that uses your talents. Perhaps this means turning what you love into your life’s work or taking a gamble with your heart.

Eclipses in the eleventh house have to do with extended friend networks — colleagues and collaborators, near and far. Your attention is on these wider circles, with possible endings of some alliances or keeping up-to-date with others. You might meet odd characters, or reveal your own strange inclinations or fascinations. The genius is unleashed, and you experience more freedom to say and do what you like.

Fifth and eleventh house eclipses will urge you to make a name for yourself, bring your attention to social networks, cause up and downs in friendships, and even lead to a shift with your child.

FOURTH AND TENTH HOUSE (CANCER/CAPRICORN)

Eclipses in the fourth house bring attention to home life. The forces that shaped your emotional body loom large, perhaps triggered by an event. A crisis here could bring you back to your roots, through tragedy or a sense of responsibility.

An eclipse in the tenth house rouses dynamics of authority — claiming it or giving it away. Often times, sources of authority come from family members, so relationships with parents or kids may be affected. During this time, events may happen that challenge you to overcome emotional legacies that keep you from symbolically climbing that mountain.

Overall, eclipses that engage the fourth and tenth house have something to do with home (be it going back or creating a new home), parenting, emotional roots, and ancestral legacies.

THIRD AND NINTH HOUSE (OR GEMINI/SAGITTARIUS)

Eclipses in the third house jolt the nervous system, and affects the networks you’re plugged into. Something meaningful happens in the local neighborhood, or siblings, school mates, and extended family could play a larger role in your life. An eclipse could also activate an urge to go back to school or be trained in a new field.

An eclipse in the ninth house lures you out of the known and into the edge of your personal frontier. A path opens, and with a trust in the universe, you signal you’re ready to grow beyond known borders. This can involve travel, a sabbatical, or time as an exchange student. Your philosophy is altered, or you begin a course of study, not knowing how it’ll change you.

Themes of third and ninth house eclipses include student/teacher relationships, a quest for consciousness and knowledge, apprenticeships, gaining credentials, and travel.

SECOND AND EIGHTH HOUSE (OR TAURUS-SCORPIO)

An eclipse in the second house hits on material realities — money, what you own or owe, what you’ve built (symbolically) with your own two hands. A crisis here could shake you at your base. Perhaps your finances and possessions that you see as what makes you, you are destabilized. It could set off an ordeal, where you’re tested to stick with a soul’s calling through hardships. There can be inner wrestling with how much to invest, and what’s most important to achieve.

Eclipses in the eighth house are intense, and bring on soul-searching. Some might become aware of the heavy energetic price of debt or toxic entanglements. A catharsis might be due in order to summon emotional courage and transform your darkest fears into productive action. Being close to death is a possibility, with all the reflection the ultimate life passage brings. Other possibilities are banishing intensity around sex, meeting your or another person’s dark side, or leaving a controlling situation.

Overall, eclipses in the second and eighth house involve developing or squandering natural talents, realizing your values, selling your soul, fertility, and death.

Eclipse Aspects to Natal Planets

by Molly Hall

Solar Eclipse

What Kinds of Changes Can You Expect?

In astrology, a natal chart is a map of where all astrological bodies—or planets—are located at the time of your birth. The time, date, and place of your birth will determine your natal chart. In turn, the natal chart can tell you many things, including which planets fall near your House.

To clarify, the 12 Houses in astrology are not the same as the 12 zodiac horoscopes. Your zodiac is based on the Sun’s location during Earth’s yearly orbit around it.

On the other hand, your House is determined by the Earth’s rotation around its own axis over the course of one day.

By looking at where an eclipse falls in the Houses, you get a sneak preview of what’s to come (or already in progress). If an eclipse falls within 5 degrees of a natal planet, it alters the planet’s traits. Thus, when an eclipse aspects any of your natal planets, there may be changes in your mood, ways of thinking, life direction, or the life events of those around you.

While changes can be drastic, dramatic, or shocking, that is not necessarily the case. Changes can often be subtle and inward. Sometimes they can be a profound unfolding that happens over a period of time (six months is the rule).

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT THE SUN

The Sun brings out your ego, willpower, and decisiveness. So when the Sun engages with eclipses, that marks significant milestones and moments of action.

You could be faced with a crisis that you have to overcome, or come across a big revelation in terms of identity. A speedy leap of growth professionally or personally is possible as you ride a surge of your solar energies, like a wave rider. Essentially, its a time for you to shine and take action for yourself.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT THE MOON

Hits of your natal Moon to the eclipse bring emotionally churning events or atmospheres. When mother Moon’s light is obscured, you may feel exposed and vulnerable. Events related to your mother, mothering, home, the past, and stability may occur and cause emotional triggers. There could be disruptions on the home front — something unsettling — that takes time to restore equilibrium.

In a physical sense, that could mean a moving homes, going to college, or another symbolic break from “home” and its influence. In terms of spirituality, it could mean feeling comfortable in your own skin. There can be epiphanies about the emotional matrices that make up your being, and any breakthroughs take months to integrate.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT MERCURY

Mercury is the god of definition. A Mercury-touched by an eclipse can mean a change in your professional title or how your personally define yourself. In the extreme, an eclipse could take you to states, beyond your ‘right mind.’ There could be a mental crisis, but one that eventually leads to more tools and awareness for mental health. There can be amazing dreams, ideas, streams of consciousness and insights.

This could be a time for communication.

Or, you might realize that it’s wise to wait until the fragments of the mind are re-ordered. In his trickster guise, Mercury could scramble things, in a way that takes a while to unravel.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT VENUS

Venus is usually associated with confidence, love, and financial excess. A contact with Venus to eclipses can either weaken or strengthen these traits. Perhaps there will be financial issues, relationship challenges, or uncharacteristic self-esteem issues.

On the other hand, your love life could be charged up. A new romance that starts now could have a fated feel, like it came at just the right moment in time. Other big bangs can happen with money, unexpected assistance, new friendships, or a heightened sense of well-being. Also, you could have sudden inspiration to pursue your artistic and creative side.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT MARS

If Mars is triggered by an eclipse, there can be outbursts, both constructive and destructive. The raw energy of Mars rushes out, and if there are underlying conflicts, this could be a time of getting into it. You might have to stand up for yourself if under attack, or find yourself initiating a confrontation yourself.

You could have a surge of physical vitality, with a Mars hit. It could be diverted into arguing, or an ongoing frustration reaches a breaking point. If a situation comes to a head, it could be explosive. And yet, that might be the cosmos way of provoking change that wouldn’t come otherwise. Any eruptions of raw emotion and subsequent actions could take months to sort out.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT JUPITER

An eclipse meet and greet with your natal Jupiter could give you the travel bug. You may be itching for an adventure or to take a risk. Events may happen that widen your world and sense of possibility. You may meet someone from another culture or be drawn swiftly toward what’s been foreign and far-flung.

An eclipse hit to Jupiter could expose you to a higher ideal that takes awhile to see as a real possibility. The flash experienced could lead to sudden changes, or be a light that guides you on the next stretch of the journey.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT SATURN

If the eclipse engages your Saturn, be open to lessons of a teacher or mentor. If you’re wisely using your gifts, this could involve reaching a milestone. You could be recognized in some way, or be ready to take a step that only comes from being seasoned.

Also likely, you experience hitting walls. Perhaps life has become too narrow and is not the right structure for who you’re becoming. This could be painful, especially if you are deeply bound up with what you’ve set up. But recognizing this is the first step to change. There could be a shift with responsibilities — whether it be more burdens or less. The subtle or extreme shifts in life structure can take months to play out.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT URANUS

Uranus is the planet of waking up to more expansive realities, a stroke of genius, and breaking free.

When an eclipse aspects Uranus, the restlessness of this engagement could be felt for a few days or weeks prior. What’s odd or eccentric about you has a chance to shine, and this could throw others for a loop. This eclipse is a shout out to your inner wild child, free spirit, and original genius. Ride out this creative wave, see what there is to experience, and jot down any ideas as they’re sure to be inspired.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT NEPTUNE

With Neptune aspected by an eclipse, the veils drop. There can be disillusionment or relief as you realize something about yourself or others that you hadn’t understood before. There can be a sense of betrayal by another or maybe you see where you’ve been fooling yourself.

Like being someone you’re not to get approval or have status. The realizations can bring satisfaction, but not before taking you through the states of death, including coming out of denial. Take heart that you’ll emerge with a clearer understanding, once the fog clears.

ECLIPSES THAT ASPECT PLUTO

It’s time to take a walk on the dark side. When Pluto is engaged, inner demons get the best of us. Perhaps a mental trauma is exacerbated and cripples you with fear, or you develop an inexplicable compulsion to obsess.

This is also the time when you can gain the strength to face that inner-shadow. Or perhaps an event could force you to confront yourself. An eclipse event could be a trigger for overcoming personal challenges, which could last as long as six months or more.

Calleen’s Slightly Snarky Astrology Predictions for August 2017

Astrology August 2017

August 3rd – Uranus Goes Retrograde in Aries

When Uranus turns retrograde it nearly always causes you to look at the ramifications of whatever changes you’ve recently made, or the ones you’ve been putting off making.

Uranus wants new, exciting, and different.  It wants to add more life to your life.  Problem is, he doesn’t much care how he goes about making that happen.

When he turns retrograde, he’s now simply accentuating the point that change is direly needed in some area of your life.  What happens for many of us as a result, is we end up wanting to change everything, even though that’s not usually necessary or advisable.

Instead, what we should do when he turns retrograde is simply turn inward.  He’s giving us a minute to catch our breathe, while also allowing us time to give serious thought to the questions, “what now” and “what next”.  Because even though he doesn’t mind tossing out the baby with the bathwater, he knows all too well that he can’t overturn your entire life and expect it to be fun.  Thus, he’s giving us a brief moment of pause to review, evaluate, and then my dear, get the heck on with it!
