Exploring the Astrology of Cryptocurrency with Noah Lampert

.: a Podcast :.

In this show, I have a titillating conversation with my friend Noah Lampert about Cryptocurrency.  No matter what you have heard or what you currently think about this game-changing technology, I ask you to keep an open mind when listening.  It could change everything for you. It could be it: The freedom you have always been searching for…




Mars & The Threshold

We are approaching a threshold. Collectively speaking, it’s apparent, but personally, it may not be so clear.  From my perspective–and seemingly Mr. Blake’s–we are about to encounter some “doors.”  Seen through the panther eyes of Mars, he is ready.  It’s the same eyes the Knights of the Round had when setting off for the Grail: All of them chose to enter the forest where it was darkest to them! We are confronted with a similar situation at the moment and it all relates to Mars.

Exploring Astrology with Charles Eisenstein

In this show, I am joined by revolutionary thinker Charles Eisenstein.  We contemplate Neptune in Pisces under the Virgo Full Moon, take a look at long stretches of time through the quaking dynamic between Pluto and Uranus, and much more.  Charles is not an Astrologer but was kind enough to come on the show with an open mind to see what happened.  Well, I think what happened was kind of interesting…oOo Enjoy

Chiron conjunct Venus

Chiron teaches Mercury, Venus, and Mars an Archery Lesson

Chiron said, “Pick up your bows.  As you carefully secure the string, know it as your spine, and the bow your body. Now pick up an arrow.  As you align, see only the target. The more you concentrate on one point, the more accurate your dreams will be.  Once the arrow is released through your exhale, there is nothing more to be done.  You accept. You let go. You make adjustments that are needed.  As is the case with all of life.”

And so, all three listened and began to practice. Mercury shooting from his mind, missing to the left and right because of distracting thought forms; Venus shooting from her heart, missing yet closer to the mark; Mars shooting from his hara, missing but with a dangerous will to get it right.

All three of the Inner Planets are scheduled to meet with Chiron soon enough.  Mercury and Venus will visit his cave on Sunday (March 4th; 27 Pisces) and Mars will square off with him in a couple weeks (March 14th from Sagittarius and the Galactic Center). Subtle transits, yet profoundly impactful if you know what to focus on.

In the great epic The Bhagavad Gita we meet Arjuna.  An archer with a divinely ordained bow gifted to him from Brahma himself– its name: Gandiva.  If you are not familiar with the story, all you need to know is like most spiritual texts, it’s allegory.  Much of it takes place in a chariot where he is torn about the battle which is about to rage, processing it all with Krishna, his charioteer. Archery metaphors are used often throughout the tale.  They all point to the power of concentration.

We are not taught to concentrate, even though we are told all throughout our lives to do exactly that.  Without it, we lose focus on what really matters: Truth! And I’m not aiming at the subjective truth here, but THE TRUTH! It’s in us all, we just need to concentrate on the spark in the middle of hearts, the one which rises to illuminate the Sun and Moon between our brow (the bow is often used as metaphor for brow, where the arrow shoots through the 3rd eye)

With all this said and depending on where these lessons take place in your own Chart, I will generalize for the three aspects, but know it is no surrogate for proper interpretation and a good reading.

With Mercury conjunct Chiron, we are taught how to ignore the swarm of lies which distract us from our focus. We can bring it back in by reminding ourselves: I am That.

With Venus conjunct Chiron, we are taught how to untangle our heartstrings, focusing more on the one in our back, which allows our heart to radiate as bright as ten thousand suns.

And with Mars square Chiron, we are taught an important lesson about the power of the mentor; that we need them, and that it’s impossible to figure it all out on our own.

You don’t need to practice archery to understand these teachings, but it does help.  Nor do we need to wait for particular Transits to pass on by, but they sure make it obvious.  Best not to make it too obvious.  Get to work today.  FOCUS! On Eternal Light and what is Right.

Long days and pleasant nights my friends,

Venus Evening Star Podcast “Connected”

.: a Podcast :.

In this show, I explore Venus as an Evening Star.  She has just returned to the western skies, exalted, and heading towards Neptune.  There is much to be excited about.  And I share all my ideas in this show for you.  Enjoy!




Venus Returns to the Night

“See I’m all crooked feet, Saint Valentine

I’ve circled this map till it caught on fire”

Gregory Alan Isacov, Saint Valentine


Whether your bed is one made of roses or one laid bare from all the amorous picking, Venus has returned.  After a couple months of ‘circling the map’ of some unlit world behind the Sun, she has returned–Exalted and speeding towards her throne.  Most would agree, Venus is her most radiant and content in the Evenings sky.  And most who pay attention to her synodic dance, would also agree that when she is on the other side of the Sun , when she forms her second conjunction with the Sun in direct motion (Jan. 8th), it is the darkest part of her cycle, one with thorns instead of roses, frayed cords of connection, and a salty kind of longing.

*Important Note: I was expecting her return on the 19th, but my friend Brett Joseph showed me a picture he took on the 10th from an airplane where he caught her breaking the rules.  The reason for this early emergence is too much for this article, but I will talk about it in my upcoming Solo Podcast on Venus as an Evening Star.  Also, check out Brett’s work here to learn even more.

It was late March of 2017 when her cycle began in Aries.  Soon after, she rose triumphant in the Mornings sky on fire.  As Venus gains in brightness at dawn, leaping for her maximum elongation from the Sun, she is messing with the plugs, attempting to connect with something meaningful, something beautiful, something real.  Sometimes, she catches fire.  Then she descends swiftly, returns to the “other’ world to reclaim what has been lost in her hormonally driven attempt to find love in this world of machinery and rampant loneliness.  It’s from this space we are emerging.  The end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 has been heavily shaded in terms of the Goddess, and now, it’s time to piece back together the map, get our feet straightened out, and plug back into the right outlet discovered in the second half of 2017.

They stare at the Eclipse’s as we lay down prayers for her,

giving back the strength she gave to us

They get worked up under Super Moons as we form expeditions,

hoping we will be the first to taste her beauty

They get wild with the Blue/Blood Moon as we make love,

never forgetting who decorates the temples of our hearts


With the season’s final Eclipse closing out tomorrow (Feb 15th, LISTEN MORE HERE) and the mixed emotions of Valentines Day today perfuming the air, it is welcomed news to know she is back.  Every 19 months, when she returns to this part of her cycle, I’m reminded of just how sensitive I am to her.  2018 may have started with a bang, but my shoes felt like they were made of wet clay, my heart was far away, my connection to all I love seemed to have gone invisible in plain sight.  Now that she has returned, all is glowing with potential.  My Apprenticeship begins tomorrow, the Podcast line up for the coming months is insane, and the Sun shines upon another day.  Love is all there is.  If you feel as if you have lost it, take a deeper look within…then, create something with what you have seen in there.

Long days and pleasant nights my friends,

Aquarius & the Shins

As these first words fly from synaptic firings somewhere in my brain, through my nervous system and out my fingers onto this digital page, the Sun illumines Aquarius with Mercury and Venus dreaming of the future whilst lounging on the Dragon’s tail. Whenever the Sun is near the Dragon (RahuKetu/Nodes of the Moon) we know Eclipses are near.  The last was on January 31st, the next will be the 15th of February. The space between, the space we are currently, is what I like to call a dragon hole.

It is within these two-week windows when we can expect the unexpected.  One could argue life is filled with unexpected events, and I would ask: Did it happen around an Eclipse?  I have gathered hundreds of eclipse stories along my squiggly path–personally, from clients, from friends, even from The Darkside of the Moon–and from my experience, they show us in their strange light the change that needs to happen.

I have saying:

Stand strong with the Sun

Stand stronger with the Moon

Change with Eclipses

With the Sun beaming from Aquarius this entire eclipse season, it has literally made it hard to “stand strong” for me…  Whilst hanging from my pull-up bar, precariously at the top of a set up wooden stairs, I fell, and I fell hard.  Ever since I was a kid I didn’t trust the pull-up bars extended into door-frames or walls. Something about them made me uneasy. Maybe it was some future memory I had tapped into surrounded by Aquarian themes, who knows.  All I know is when it gave out, all my weight came down to the front of my shins on the top stair. I slid. I tumbled. I saw red.  I concluded all you need to know about taking down an opponent is a nice wack to the shins. The whole body fails, then falls.  And if you can’t support your weight, how on earth could you move forward.

It seems universally agreed upon that the shins relate to Aquarius.  As does everything else between the knee and ankle.  It’s always been an elusive rulership for me to understand…that is, until now.

Ancient soldiers used to wear greaves over this part of the body to protect these sensitive Aquarius limbs in battle.  For how would it be possible to move forward with the fight or the campaign if you couldn’t take any steps forward.  Jump ahead to today, where bionic limbs are here and evolving faster than even Moore’s Law (as an aside, I’ve seen nearly a dozen people with amazing bionic legs since the last Eclipse; Check out Hugh Herr’s TED talk).  Without our shins we couldn’t stand in Truth, we wouldn’t be able to jump ahead, run from the past or into the future, we would be robbed from our favorite asanas, unable to sit in any kind of lotus, we wouldn’t be human.  The complexity of our anatomy in this region transcends the scope of this article, but we can assume one thing: It’s connected to everything. Especially our progress moving forward.

Aquarius is fixed air. Without the proper circulation of ideas, it becomes stagnant.  This is what our friends and colleagues are for. And with perfect circulation and the wind prancing through our hair, we might be flying high. The Wright brothers knew this when they first took flight in 1903 with a Saturn/Mars conjunction in Aquarius.  If we are to move forward with excited strides we must question “our” ideas and be open to those around us. This is how innovation happens. This is precisely what I learned from my “accident.” How to move forward in a few areas with integrity and with the sky as my limit. Find it in your chart. Ask it important questions. Get excited.

  • One last note: Another amazing fact about our shins, is how fast they heal.  I was convinced I would be on crutches the night of the injury.  Yet, the next morning, I had a creeping suspicion I was the Wolverine.  I could walk fine! Only a scar and bruise to prove it happened. Now, I’m headed straight to the lair of the next dragon encounter on the 15th, the day my Apprenticeship begins again.  If you’re called to join on this magical journey, you can READ MORE HERE….

Exploring Astrology & Qi Gong with Paul Fraser

.: a Podcast :.

In this show I have a conversation with my Medical Qi Gong teacher, Paul Fraser.  You may not think this has anything to do with Astrology, but you may be surprised.  If Astrology is the study of Time, Light, and Energy, then Qi Gong is the practice to keep us radiant in all three.  It’s fundamental. It’s healing.  It’s more than words can capture.  I do hope you enjoy listening. And if you find yourself wanting to learn, Paul and I both teach it.
