Times are a changing.

STAR WISE                                                                                                     MARCH 2019

In the light of recent events in Canadian politics we would conclude that last months Star Wise column was a real stinker. I had said that Trudeau’s chart was looking real good, and that it was indicating that he would be re-elected come the fall season. I will put my trust in the stars this time. Several months before Trump was elected I had predicted his win, and months later I got weak and folded to the intense media storm indicating that he had no chance to win. So I wrote a column just before the election saying that he couldn’t win. I bucked the stars, lost my faith, and the stars proved otherwise. Well, I won’t be tricked again. Possibly I will suffer the humiliation of being wrong if Trudeau gets the boot and we end up with a new Prime Minister at the end of the year. The stars say Trudeau, so I will stick to my guns, oops, I mean stars. One way or the other, regardless of who’s at the helm, here and down south things are going to get real hot, internationally, globally and every which way. We all fall down. Saturn and Pluto join up in Capricorn the sign of all government agencies. My prediction is that 2020, 2021, and 2022 will be the years of the greatest amount of tension and change in recent history. Presently we are witnessing the initial stages of a cleansing process of purification, by firstly lancing the cyst of poisonous and putrid good old boys club politics here, there and everywhere. Painful? You bet it is. But wholly and totally necessary in order for the healing process to begin. There’s nowhere to hide, nowhere to run. Those left standing, will only be standing because of their pristine behaviour unclouded and unblemished by greed and collusion, misdirection and all the rest of the wink wink BS that we have tolerated seemingly forever. Death and rebirth is on the menu, with hardly any other choices. Would you like fries with that?  How about a slightly used wood splitter? A new world consciousness will birth out of all of this chaotic churning. We are one people on one planet, totally connected together, one to the other. Peace will be the new order, and as my great Guru Param Sant Kirpal Singh JI had said, that one day the truly enlightened ones will be in control. Presently everywhere we look, close and far, it seems that our leaders have lost their minds, and have been swallowed by greed, pride and avarice. A new day is dawning, and our part is to become humane beings, and truly start loving one another. 

ARIES

MARCH 21 – April 19

The Sun enters Aries on March 20 and within 4 hours of that event a full moon takes place. Epiphanies manifest, revelations and realizations unfold. Career prospects are strong, money flows in, possibly from innovative and unusual ideas. Travel is indicated.

TAURUS

April 20 – May 21

Shifts and changes are taking place, and it would be wise to go along with the universal plan. Stubborn resistance may work at times, but not this time. Innovative ideas along with a pioneering spirit will move you along nicely.

GEMINI

May 22 – June 20

Take your time, and then take some more time to figure out just what to do. Lord Mercury hooks up with Neptune indicating a possible fuzzy, wonky time developing in the last half of the month. Creative levels are high, and those that are musically or artistically inclined will benefit the most. Strive for honesty, and clarity is best.

CANCER

June 21 – July 22

It’s complicated. So many thought waves coming through, and you just don’t know what to do. Simplify, simplify is best, and let go of the rest. All kinds of dynamic changes are taking place, and it would be best to go with the flow. Creative energy is high, and you might surprise yourself with what you come up with.

LEO

July 23 – August 22

You have to dig in deep now. Investments and inheritance considerations are on board. Health and work issues need to be managed. Travel plans manifest, and you may be tired of the status quo, and looking for new ventures. Dreams and strange psychic phenomenon may also manifest now. Pay attention to them.

VIRGO

August 23 – September 22

Two distinct planetary energies are onboard and will help guide you through a fairly complex time of it. On the one level, you have your plan in gear, and hopefully the universe cooperates with that plan. Murphy’s law can come into play, and it will serve you well to have plan B at the ready. Don’t cut corners, and keep things clear and simple, otherwise you may be pulling your hair out trying to figure what the hay just happened.

LIBRA

September 23 – October 22

The full moon on March 20 takes place in your sign casting light and understanding onto whatever is on your platter. You may be plumbing the depths as all kinds of past scenarios get revisited, especially regarding loved ones. Home, land and real estate figure into the play. Time with family and friends is indicated.

SCORPIO

October 23 – November 21

Like Taurus, you’re not amenable to changes that you hadn’t planned on. Scorps are known too dig in and hold the fort. Actually you might be in the mood to make some changes and certainly the stars are always willing to help with the plan. Relationships sometimes sink ships and now is the time to consider what is best to do.

SAGITTARIUS

November 22 – December 21

Jupiter lends a hand by bringing opportunities to make positive changes. In the meantime Mercury and Neptune conspire to keep thing hazy and fuzzy for a while. Mainly, look before you leap, and reconsider your moves and motives for any important decisions at this time in your life. Then think some more about it.

CAPRICORN

December 22 – January 19

It is a very dynamic time for the sea goat. The sea goat is part fish, part goat and they are both very important symbols for Capricorn to consider. The goat strives to be sucessful at putting their material life in order. The fish is related to the mystical and spiritual aspects of life, which is also exceptionally important to have a balance between the two. Beginnings and endings are taking place now.

AQUARIUS

January 20 – February 19

Venus moves through Aquarius now prompting you to take a long look at what makes you happy and fulfilled. It’s time for some soul searching and weighing up what is important and what needs to be moved out of your life. Lord Uranus is involved in cranking up the pressure to make positive and innovative changes.

PISCES

February 20 – March 20

Mercury and Neptune meet up ion the last half of the month and can throw a stick into the works, or it can manifest by bringing a highly receptive and intuitive energy in which you dream up or come up with all kinds of unusual and highly creative ideas. Clarity, honesty, and purity are the tools that are needed to benefit from this dynamic planetary configuration.

Magic Carpet Ride

                                                                                       

As much is it makes me nauseous to write about, let alone even think about Donald Trump, his magic carpet ride is over. The overwhelmingly powerful and dynamic planetary influences that swept him into power have melted away. I had predicted that he would win the election, although every other indication was saying no way he could win. But win he did, and the planet has nearly wobbled off of it’s axis ever since. The double Jupiter Dasa (planetary cycle) that blew open the doors for him, has shifted into a much more confining Saturn influence that will affect his fate until 2021. Trump’s new Saturn cycle began in January 2019 just as the democrats took over the house of representatives, and basically put a damper on all that he does, or attempts to do. The stage hook is close at hand. As my dear wife just reminded me, Saturn represents falls from high places, literally or figuratively. Although it may seem otherwise, I really don’t have the stomach for politics, but hey, while I’m at it, let’s talk about our illustrious leader, Justin Trudeau. Strangely and somewhat karmically, Trudeau begins a strong Jupiter Cycle one month before the federal elections this Fall. Plus on the day of the election Jupiter returns to the exact degree of longitude that it was in when Trudeau was born, pretty much ensuring his win. Possibly there’s someone out there that is radiating more planetary power, but I doubt it. So it looks like, out with Trump, and in with Trudeau. The hog in trough antics of some of our local BC representatives has been exposed, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we find ourselves heading for another visit to to polls. 2019 is truly just a prelude as to what is to come in 2020 as Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto get real close in Capricorn the sign of all government parties, agencies, offices, etc. My advice is to think hard and long in this 2019 time, and know that if there was ever a year in our history that will be of major consequence it will be 2020. Interestingly, 2020 is supposed to mean perfect vision, and we need to develop our vision and focus on what we truly want. Old regimes are crumbling, and new ground is developing. What will it be people? It’s time for a new birthing. Just a parting thought. If we’re not nurturing our soul by meditation, it won’t matter who’s at the helm, and we will continue to grumble and grind. A change in lifestyle and values is truly needed in order to attain Peace on Earth.

ARIES

MARCH 21 – April 19

Take it easy in the first half of February as your ruler Mars and Uranus meet up creating a very exciting, stimulating and possibly very dangerous time. It may be memorable times of high excitement, big fun, etc. Then again, things can change in a heartbeat. Easy does it.

TAURUS

A career shift is possible as the new  moon on February 4 activates your solar career house. Travel may be in the works, and there are hints of a spiritual change in the wind. Fiery Mars livens things up mid month and onwards. You may be restless and sensing that big changes are coming your way.

GEMINI

May 22 – June 20

If he proposes on Valentine’s day make sure it’s not a stolen ring, or that he’s not already married. Just kidding:) Sort of. Just make sure you got your heart in the right place, and your head screwed on right. Writing, publishing, traveling and matters of the spirit capture your attention throughout the month.

CANCER

June 21 – July 22

Read Gemini and get what you can from it. A time of soul searching has arrived, and you have decisions to make regarding matters of the heart. It’s time to move closer or move away, nothing half way will do. Settle down, stay safe, and don’t take too many chances especially in the first half of the month.

LEO

July 23 – August 22

The first three weeks of February is your solar low of the year. You may feel tired, run down, etc. It’s basically a time to nurture yourself, take it easy, and live with less stress. A vacation to a warm climate would work wonders. The main point is to preserve and conserve your energy.

VIRGO

August 23 – September 22

Pay attention to what comes to pass as the Virgo full moon on February 19 takes place. The probability of confusion and misunderstandings is strong, as some type of misinformation comes your way. Read the fine print. Watch for knee jerk reactions to emotionally charged scenarios. Strive for patience and clarity before making any important decisions.

LIBRA

September 23 – October 22

February is loaded with all kinds of activity regarding home, land, real estate, and family. Celebrations, parties and entertainment take place.
