ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
This week brings a much needed assessment of your job and your home life. Rams try to have everything in balance but don’t be surprised if things tip the scales one way or the other. Be prepared to tip over entirely if you give too much attention to one side over the other. Take a short vacation and find out if this relationship is worth it and then tip away!
 
TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Bulls can make themselves known in large global circles. And it is about time too! Let yourself be carried away on the adoration of your audience and expound on some of your great thoughts and ideas. Before you know it, all your buzz makes you an international sensation. Or maybe it just feels that way because you are sitting on your cell phone...?
 
GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Love for sale? It may seem that way when lovers demand expensive baubles to keep tier spirits up. How much are you prepared to spend to get your jollies this June, Twin? If you’ve got it, spend it. If you don’t, find some cheap thrills somewhere else. With the economy as it is, I am sure that you will find something or someone in your price range.
 
CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Relationships may take up much more of you time than you are prepared to give. Crabs may ache for some time alone or with an entirely new crowd. But balance in this area of your life is an art now. Try to find the time to cement current partnerships as well as create new ones. The summer is young and there are too many hot summer nights to bake alone.
 
LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Unexpected roadblocks pop up at work. What you thought would be an easy and mindless little project suddenly becomes the monster with eight legs. So if you can delegate, or even better, make yourself scarce around the office, try to do so. It is wonderful to be thought of as the go-to person around the office. Become the go-to person in July.
 
VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Friends can go off the deep end in anything frothy or fun. Will you have to be the one to rein in the festivities? Don’t be surprised if pals come to you to give them grounding and direction,  Virgo. You are known for being practical and strong. And yet sometimes it is advisable to let loose, dive in with the crowd and, with an inflatable imagination, paddle safely to shore.
 
LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Juice up your home life, but it may be at the expense of your professional life. Don’t be surprised if you make a dramatic move based on very personal needs and desires. Think of all possible outcomes and see what works best for you in the long term. Sometimes you have to learn how to achieve better life balance. Just don’t totally tip your scales over, Libra.
 
SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
As quiet and calculating as you usually are, this week will open up the communication floodgates and you will spill forth. No word will be left unspoken. All your thoughts are released into the universal throng. And your communication will have great impact on many people. This is all great, if this is what you want. If not, think kind thoughts and just enigmatically smile.
 
SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Keep a careful watch on your expenses all through June.  Archers love to enjoy life to to the fullest but now you are tempted to go over budget in a big splashy way. This can be controlled, if you put your mind to it. If you can parcel out your largess in a logical way, you find a myriad of ways to entertain yourself and you gaggle of pals. Or it is a gobble....
 
CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Expect certain relationships to infringe on your assorted comings and goings through the month. Caps don't like to ask permission. They prefer to be trusted to do the right thing and take personal responsibility for their antics. But others around you try to get into your act and direct you to their preferences. Patience is a virtue. How virtuous will you be now?
 
AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There are those who are working behind the scenes who are waiting for their chance to strike. But Aquarians have a nice protective armor that will help thwart the worst of it. However, don't give ill-intentioned folks the chance to foul things up. Be watchful, don't lose your focus and get plenty of rest and exercise. Keep your stress down and your strength up.
 
PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Allow your creativity to flow all through the month. Piceans with a great idea will find the right supporters and cheerleaders. It is a great time to try your hand at anything artistic or creative. However, you will be tempted to bite off more than you can chew now. Try to keep your appetite manageable so you can easily digest even the biggest mouthful.

Lucky Numbers for Week of May 29, 2009

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But I think it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes.

So with that in mind, I decided that we could use some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of May 29-June 4, 2009:

5, 18, 34, 35, 47, 57, 61, 77

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions.


Study Sheet on the Saturn Return

Here is my Saturn Return study sheet. I hope you find it useful.


“The Saturn Return”: The time in your life when Saturn becomes THE GREAT TEACHER.

Let me introduce you to Saturn, that gleaming green mysterious planet -- the one with the beautiful rings. You say that you’re familiar with Saturn? Well maybe in astronomically, but there is much more to it than that! Even with all its beauty, this planet is associated with some pretty tough stuff -- discipline, caution, wisdom gained through hard work, sorrow, loneliness, depression, fear and inadequacy. Even Mr. Webster writes in his dictionary that being “Saturnine is having a melancholy or surly disposition”.

Old world astrologers call this planet “Great Malefic”, meaning ill willed but we more enlightened astrologers prefer to be a bit more optimistic and call it “Great Teacher”. Indeed, Saturn helps us come to grips with our deepest fears and, if we face these fears head on, we emerge from this period of life stronger and more enlightened.

Saturn symbolizes things that frighten us or areas of our life in which we feel inadequate. During a particular Saturn cycle, we will face unavoidable situations that will push us to face our fears and provide a life lesson. Don’t ya just love those “life lessons”?

So when does this happen?
Saturn’s major influence in one’s lifetime occurs approximately every 29 years or so but the effect of the planet starts to creep up two years prior and last another year beyond (Saturn is a very slow moving fellow). The whole phase lasts for about three years. We astrologers call it “The Saturn Return”. Even the name has a dramatic ring to it -- just like “The Return of the Fly” and “The Return of the Blob”....

The Saturn Return heralds the end of a major life cycle and ushers in a period of great reevaluation, changes and endings. Are you living your life true to your own self or are you living for other people’s approval and expectations? Use this time to reappraise your life, whether it be in relationships, career, residence or family. Don’t begin anything new at this time (like a marriage) because there is just too much darn static on the line. Just use the time to reassess and ride the swelling tide.

Which house does Saturn sit in in your natal chart? That gives you a clue as to where most of this turmoil originates:
House 1  How you appear to others; First Impressions.
House 2  Money and finances. Your value system and items of value.
House 3  How you communicate. How you think. How you maneuver in your neighborhood.
House 4  Your home and security. Your dominant parent.
House 5  How you have fun. How you behave creatively
House 6  Your job.
House 7  Partnerships and and one to one relationships.
House 8  Sex and deep psychological issues.
House 9  Travel and higher education.
House 10  Your career and long term goals.
House 11  Friends and large social groups.
House 12  Spirituality, hidden things such as personal secrets or hidden enemies.

The good part is, as this cycle comes to a close, you’ll begin to reap what you have sown. You see, it has a happy ending, just like in all those horror movies. Relax. Learn to expand your perspective and brace yourself for enforced changes, possible endings and ongoing challenges and crisis. Then make way for a time of new opportunities, new realizations, solidification and strengthening of foundations, new beginnings and maturity. Wisdom makes a great teacher.

Curious to know if you are in this cycle? Bruising from your last return? Want to know more? Please don’t hesitate to contact me about a special Saturn Return reading. The analysis is approximately two pages long and examines where Saturn was at the exact time and place of your birth (its natal placement), aspects to your natal Saturn within your chart and transits to your Saturn from current planetary placements. ANd to read more about the Saturn return cycle, try this great book: Surviving Saturn's Return: Overcoming the Most Tumultuous Time of Your Life

The Saturn Return analysis is designed to help you maximize the benefits of the Saturn transit and hopefully provide you with some insights into challenges and stressful points during the Return so they can be dealt with more easily. The cost is $50 for this intensive analysis. My email address is TheStarryEye-at-aol-dot-com if you have any question or would like a reading.


Synthetic Telepathy

Telepathy I have heard about mental telepathy and believe that some people may have this intuitive streak. And then I read about synthetic telepathy which is a type of computer programming that enables machines to think and "feel". Of course "feel' would be like a series a pre-programmed responses ... errr... I think.

According to a Futurist Magazine article earlier this year, there is a group a brilliant scientists and programmers who are trying to create a computer that feels on an emotional level. David Poeppel is a neuroscientist who is considered to be a master of synthetic techonolgy. He says all mental thoughts create an electronic signal that can be then transferred to a computer. The communication between a human brain and a computer could become telepathic commuication between human and machine.

I wonder what would happen if someone with psychic abilities was hooked into the computer in this way. Would the computer be able to better predict the future using these mental electronic signals coupled with computer-based strategic algorithims? I wonder...!!!

There are many good books on this interesting subject. Check out these Synthetic Telepathy Books
