The lunar cycle has a definite influence upon the human psyche. Scientific psychological studies have demonstrated the powerful effect of this cycle upon human behavior -- the full Moon coinciding with more extreme anxiety, tension, sensitivity, and other pathological conditions. On the positive side, more physically speedy and energized, and on the negative side...

On the transcendental level, Virgo governs karma yoga, the path of service extended to all beings. By coming to know the needs of others and learning how best to satisfy their natural desires, we experience the unity of each and every creature woven into the web of life.

Perennial non-conformists, the natives of winter's second astrological month are reform minded, protective of individual liberties, and in search of the truth no matter what consequences await them at the end of their quest.

A practical earth sign, Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) is the month when fanciful dreams become well-plotted schemes. It took Benjamin Franklin (born Jan. 17, 1706) to proffer the adage that a "penny saved is a penny earned". Capricorns love to master the moment and set up systems which seem capable of lasting forever.

As the twelfth and final spoke in the astrological wheel, it is up to Pisces to break things down into their subtlest forms. Governed by cloud-enshrouded Neptune, the sign of the Fish is associated with refined spiritual energies on the transcendent level.

If the abundance of books on a specific subject measures the pulse of popular culture, there is a seeming revival of soul as a topic of cultural interest. The immense profusion of these works suggests a renewed claim to bring soul back to the attention of the postmodern consciousness, to reawaken the sacred in our everyday lives. But what is soul and what does it mean to suffer its loss?
Astrology examines the microcosm and macrocosm... you and the universe. Contrary to popular belief, the stars and planets have no effect on us. Instead, they are manifestations of hidden, more divine energies that are operating. I call the symbols in the skies "signatures" of the Creator intended for man's use.
The three most influential factors in a horoscope are generally the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant. Thus they are a good place to begin analyzing a chart. While their weights may be nearly identical in terms of their influence, their functions are different.
The three most important elements in the fully-calculated birth-chart are the Rising-sign, Sun-sign and Moon-sign — in that order. We all know our Sun-sign, because we know our birth date. The Sun-sign is, in the opinion of many astrologers, second in importance to our Rising-sign, which relies on the precise time and location of our birth.

As the sun illuminates each sign in turn, we can boldly express the unique genius of that sign. The sun represents vitality, pride, creative energy, and the outward expression of self-knowledge.
by Bruce Scofield. I think electional astrology appeals to people who want to control things. We all know that this kind of attitude can get us into trouble. If a client wants me to time an event that only affects them, like a surgery date, well that's fine with me. I get requests for this work from time to time and have developed a methodology that gets good results most of the time. I'll share with you how this method developed and something of how it works.
As many parts of speech as we have in language, they sometimes do not do justice to what is being described. And so it is in astrology. The word Mars "says" something that cannot compete with the aggressive, direct nature of its symbol. So, to facilitate memorization of each Sign, and to appreciate its archetype, we must appreciate what the symbol describes.
by Hart de Fouw and Robert E. Svoboda. None of us ever completely escapes becoming enmeshed in the web of human relationships. Many are the vantages from which we may examine our relating selves, but few are as clear-sighted as the Indian system of divination called Jyotisha, often referred to in English as "Indian" or "Vedic" astrology.

Astrological Events Indicated The Future Is Now, by Da Vid. Scientists today are in agreement that we are living in a multi-dimensional holographic universe, where all is energy, all is light, and all is consciousness. Indeed, the Ancient and Eternal Wisdom has come of age. As we become progressively aware of the fact that we are living in an organic, multi-dimensional, expanding, YES UNIVERSE, we are given the unprecedented opportunity to transform our lives in accordance with the understanding that we live in an infinitely abundant, benevolent, and super intelligent universe, governed by the law of love.
by Tracy Marks. An important principle of depth astrology is that we can transcend our charts. As we develop a center within ourselves, learn to trust our inner guidance, and become more attuned to universal energies, we are less at the mercy of the stresses indicated by our planetary positions.
Astrocartography is the study of localities which are best suited to you according to your birth chart and power of astrology in our lives, specifically in respect to choosing a city or country in which to live.
The more people who embrace a belief system, the more power it has. Personal identity is often inextricably connected with the beliefs one embraces, and arguments are consequently infused with emotion, because a defense of beliefs often constitutes a defense of personal identity.
by Bil Tierney. When Uranus transits itself, we are dealing with life cycles that occur in everyone's chart at relatively the same chronological ages. These can be periods when we receive wake-up calls telling us to follow our path of freedom. During any one of these cycles, our true self wants to break out in some fashion and make its individuality known.
by Miriam "Mimi" Donner. Esoteric astrology takes a look at the significance of 666 - the number of the beast. Numerologists, those concerned with the science and study of numbers, have long deliberated on the significance of the number triple six...

Aspects form a vital component of the interpretation of the natal chart. It does, however, happen that one or more planets do not receive or make any major aspects. They have no direct influence on other planets (or psychic dynamics), and are themselves also not influenced, so they can exhibit extremes in their effects.
by Erin Sullivan. The procedure of slowing, stationing and retrogression is often noted by events or inner mood shifts. Although rarely on the station-day itself, but frequently within a week on either side of it, there is a marked shift in energy patterns, both psychologically and physically.
by Alphee Lavoie. There has always been a lot of controversy among astrologers as to what time (and even location) to take for erecting a horary chart but I feel that it is really quite simple. I have just a few rules to follow that will make it easy and accurate for you to take the proper time of the question
by Geoffrey Cornelius.
Divination is a word that is often loosely used to mean a type of intuition. The highest processes of what we do in any art or science involve this wonderful intuitive capacity. Put that way, we could all agree, "Fine, astrology is divination, but so what?" My purpose here today is to raise the "so what?"
by Ed Perrone.
Humanity is becoming increasingly aware of its spiritual heritage. This is a fundamental effect of the onset of the Age of Aquarius. It is leading an ever-growing number of people to investigate the nature of their own realities, to seek out the hidden reasons behind their personal existences.

Here's when and where the planets are found in the sky during 2002. The planets are referenced to the constellations (astronomical or sidereal zodiac placements), not to the zodiac signs (tropical zodiac).
In the American dream as it's currently dished up, we try to do two things: make money and lose weight. Is that the meaning of life? Making money might give somebody a sense of meaning in life presently, and I don't want to simply disparage that. It could be part of a soul's journey, perhaps part of a larger, creative commitment to building a vision, building a business. But at the same time there is the inescapable realization that...

One of the ways that leads to the comprehension of the world is by attempting to understand people -- not necessarily to agree with them, nor to explain them, but to grasp their nature. The numerological chart is a powerful tool for that purpose. Your name reflects your self in the chart, while the date of birth reveals how this self lives.
by Erin Sullivan. It is during uncertain times that people are compelled to experience their interior world and heed their inner voice. They recognize a Grand Plan, a higher intelligence, search within themselves for meaning and begin to look for 'signs' on the horizon that might indicate in which direction to turn.
by Robert Wilkinson.
The first part of the retrograde process is where one learns to adapt to new rhythms, and explores different ways of learning. During the entire retrograde period, a different point of view and a new comprehension proceeds to unfold.
by Nancy Anne Hastings. Where is your Sun? Where is your Moon? What sign do you have rising? This information is the foundation trilogy, the three factors which give us the most information about another person... who you are, how you feel, and how you approach the world.
by Barbara Hand Clow.
Imagine knowing in advance the timing and form that a major life crisis might take. That knowledge could help diffuse the crisis nature of the circumstances and create the possibility of understanding the experience while it was happening
by S.A. Watkins. Have you ever wondered why you seem drawn to certain individuals more than others? Do certain celebrities, politicians or public figures command your attention like no one else? You may have more in common with the celebrity you admire than you think.
by Margaret Koolman. We all know people who show us the negative side of their Sun sign... every sign has its negative side. What is going on inside people when they display such negative behavior? If we can understand how it feels inside, we will be able to choose a more helpful response.
by Tracy Marks. Astrology is a powerful art, capable of enhancing our lives by enabling us to understand our own process of unfolding and how we can cooperate with the energies within and around us. But it is also a dangerous art, and can be easily misused.
by Jodie Forrest and Steven Forrest.
Traditional astrology books were written in times when people were dogmatically certain about gender roles. 'In the chart of a man, Mars in Aquarius means...' The problem is that there is no way, while looking at a birthchart, to discern whether that chart belongs to a woman or a man.
It is commonly agreed that the Chinese lunar calendar and its animals coincide generally with the Western astrology Sun signs. In making this correlation from the Sun signs to the animals, I used the meridians and their emotions as they related to the animals on the Time of Day Wheel as the criteria and found that this worked out best.

General interest in astrology has increased dramatically over the last decade. People from all walks of life, including heads of state, actors, business people, and yoga students consult astrologers. Frequently, people seek astrologers when they are undergoing a personal crisis.

The need fulfillment process within relationship and the possible introduction of intimacy come down to the bare but enormously challenging truth: I can only be intimate with someone when I can be myself without fear. Individual self-respect and confidence -- with no fear of reprisal from the other person -- allow intimacy to begin with the other individual in the relationship.
