The role of astrology is not to instruct, or even advise, but to describe what fundamentally underlies our circumstances, and to point to the consequences of what we decide to do going forward. Yet good astrologers have learnt one lesson that can help decisions for the future. We know that selfish manipulation of others may work for a while, but never succeeds in the end. It just makes matters worse. So, any imminent world crisis will not be resolved by narrow economic solutions, propped up by laws and assumptions, based on greed and hatred of anyone in the way.
Without an awareness of the basic fingerprint of the cosmos, one will never have a true understanding of an interface between the pyscho-spiritual and the bio-material realms. With the awareness of this numerical cosmic fingerprint, one is inevitably lead to the realization that both the spiritual and material domains are indeed one and the same, operating at different vibrational orders, always seeking to achieve harmonic resonance.

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…
As seekers of astrological wisdom we are often confronted by the bigger questions of why does astrology work. We know it works, we see it working in our lives and in our clients lives, in the world around us and in so many varied and profoundly interesting ways, yet it is hard to define exactly how or why it works, as not one single explanation will ever suffice. Something that has helped enlighten my journey of astrological understanding, of why the patterns and cycles of the planets continue to coincide with our lives, is the understanding of astrology as a dynamic fractal like system, set off at birth with its own unique formula and conditions, that then continues to unfurl and unfold as a never ending fractal like pattern of growth.
Have you found your role in the Chaos of our times? Into which realm would you throw the apple of discord to start a significant ripple of change!
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,

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.
