Two Astrology Videos on Donald Trump and the Leo Solar Eclipse

Is the ‘Great American Eclipse’ the end of the line for Trump presidency?

The total solar eclipse in Leo on Aug. 21, 2017 makes a nearly exact conjunction with Donald Trump’s Ascendant. In the first video I explore the Leo eclipse in Trump’s chart and why I believe this eclipse marks the beginning of the end for Trump as U.S. President:

In Part 2 of my series on the Aug. 21, 2017 Leo solar eclipse, I explore the degree symbols for Donald Trump’s Ascendant. In astrology the Ascendant (or rising sign and degree) represents the persona or the mask the person wears on the stage of life. What you learn in this video might just change your mind about America’s current (but for how long?) president:


I’ll be looking much deeper into all of this (and much more, including the USA’s upcoming Pluto return) in my 5-week webinar Trumpstrology: The Astrology of Current Affairs. The webinar starts Wednesday, Aug. 2 and there are still a few places open. Register or get more info here.

Light Bulb Moments

As I pulled up into the driveway, I was feeling a bit anxious. The plan was to stay for most of the next three days with my colleague Raisha Love in Ann Arbor, doing readings for family and friends.

Although I knew Raisha and her (grown-up) kids, you never know exactly what awaits you the first time you stay as a guest at someone’s house.

I arrived at Raisha’s on Friday evening, the day after my Ann Arbor ancestors workshop with Diana Quinn. Continue reading

The Astrology of Current Affairs

Gaining even a basic understanding of how the world changes under different outer planet cycles — such as Saturn’s shift from Sagittarius into Capricorn in January — can empower you to align your actions and intentions with the prevailing energy in the Cosmos.

In this five-week webinar, we’re going to explore some ‘big picture astrology’ so you can understand what’s happening on the world stage and learn how these larger cycles affect you personally.

How Eclipses & Outer Planet Cycles Work

The course will feature a mix of exposition and interactive exploration. In each class I’ll use charts for current or upcoming events to illustrate astrology concepts and demonstrate techniques. Then we’ll explore further based on your questions and insights.

Among the topics we’ll explore in this class:

Eclipses

  • The Great American Eclipse of Aug. 21, 2017 and how it impacts the chart of Donald Trump
  • How do I understand an eclipse in relationship to my natal chart?
  • What’s the difference between solar and lunar eclipses?
  • The Flavor of the Season: Solstice and Other Ingress Charts

Outer Planet Cycles

  • Outer planet cycles in the natal chart: the Pluto square, Saturn return, and Uranus opposition
  • The World Chart: How outer planet cycles correlate to global political, economic, and social change
  • The chart for the United States (and country charts in general)
  • Chiron in Aries (2018-2026)
  • Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2023)
  • Saturn-Pluto (2019-2020)

Communing with the Spirits

Honoring the Ancestors and Clearing Ancestral Trauma in Michigan

By the time I met Diana down by the river, I was feeling a bit frazzled. Since arriving in Michigan on the day of the Cancer New Moon, I’d mostly wanted to sleep.

Mars and Mercury were both “out of bounds” in Cancer¹ that week. I was feeling exceptionally inarticulate. Diana had been dealing with some intense family stuff. While we had managed to put together a rudimentary outline for the ancestors workshop and ritual in Ann Arbor that evening, we both felt like we needed some extra help from the spirits.

We had agreed to meet at a park by the Huron River to ground ourselves and set our intentions for the workshop. I followed the Google Maps directions Diana had texted me to Island Park and parked at the first picnic shelter, as instructed. I crossed a footbridge to the island and found Diana waiting with drum in hand.
