A few months ago I was asked to express my view of the key issue facing 2014, in as few words as possible.  It took me some pondering, while looking through the difficult aspects still looming over the night sky for the year to zoom into what would make a difference in my opinion.  With Uranus still hanging on to its fingertips to Pluto and Jupiter, and seeing that the results and benefits from these aspects in the past few years, has not been anything spectacular to write home about.  My first impression is that the year will be a roller coaster ride with many highs and many lows.  Full of excitements and thrills and with moments of fear and anxiety instill with the anticipation that something good and successful is around the next corner.  Uranus, the co-ruler to Aquarius with the planet Saturn, is considered the higher spiritual octave of Mercury.  The planet is associated with change, revolution, invention, inspiration, freedom and the inner awakening of the spirit and the soul.  It is the adaptability of Uranus to cleverly adjust to change combined with Pluto’s ability to regenerate, transform, and create, that anything we sincerely are committed to at this time will be more rewarding and will succeed beyond our expectations.  How we as a global community and individually adjust, react and improvise and work with the change will be the key and the hallmark to our success and accomplishments for the coming year.


The Oxford English Reference dictionary defines the word change as the following; 1.) The act or the instance of making or becoming different.  2.) An alteration or modification (a change in the person’s expression, thinking or way of dress.  3.) A new experience.  4.) The substitution of one thing for another: an exchange.  Having my Sun in Taurus makes it very hard for me to tolerate or make changes easily.  I find it more pleasant and comfortable to continue doing things as they have always been done by me.  I realize I am not alone in feeling or reacting in this way, but with these difficult and trying aspects that have been with us for a while.  We need to explore new avenues of approach, if we don’t want to fall into the same traps and difficulties we have been experiencing.  Although I may prefer not to experience change or something new, I am aware that any kind of change in one’s lifestyle seems to help to jumpstart one’s imagination, and at the same time it seems to have the power to shape a situation or idea before it is manifested into reality.  A new experience seems to show one what one wants or does not want, in order to point the way to what one truly desires.  Change also reveals what experiences exist at the moment, not necessarily what one wants to end up with.  One does not study or analyze change, one just goes with it.  One needs to experience change in its context, and to use change to create change.


As we experience this coming year as a global community or individually, we need to live and be in the moment.  To go with the flow and to begin to see where it takes us, before we put up our defenses and arguments.  As the global discontent, unrest and distress is spreading, we need to go within our own thoughts and emotions, to see what disgruntlement is seething within us, in order to implement the changes that are needed to bring us in harmony with ourselves.  For as long as we are unhappy with our state of affairs we will not be in the right frame of mind to make the right choices and to determine the changes that are needed.  Our key to success for the coming year will be determined by how well we meet and handle the challenges and obstacles that are placed on our path.  Our attitude and the way we deal with the situation will determine the success we will encounter, and whether a transformation will be in progress.  We need to realize that the energies and vibrations from Uranus and Pluto are here to be a help to each one of us and not a hindrance.  These two planets give us the ability to acclimatize, improvise, invent and to create the world we are willing to call our own.  We need to work with and to be open to the changes and to allow and welcome the transformation and the regeneration that will follow.      


“Saturn, Jupiter and Venus Creating Imagination or Oversensitivity?”


Observation was one of the key lessons one learns when trying to compete in the world of fashion or fashion illustration, as understanding the trends gives one a head start to success.  The ability to observe also seems to me comes in very handy when one wants to write books or articles, as the need to understand human nature and to be able to describe it in an interesting manner to the reader is of prime importance.  Thinking about it in further details I realized observation in any occupation is of vital importance if one is to be successful.  The problem to me is that observation is not enough for success; the need to have the imagination to take what one observes to new heights of creativity is a necessity in the formula for success.  What helps in this matter is our sensitivity to what we observe, and where we go from there.

Neptune came to mind right away when one needs to develop the sensitivity to take an idea and bring it out of the main stream of thought.  What if you were a traditional astrologer, what planets would come to mind?  Immediately I thought of Venus as it gives us the ability to appreciate and see things, then Mercury to put the thought into words, with Jupiter to expand upon the ideas and to be able to share with others, and Saturn to give us structure.  Neptune the higher octave of Venus gives us vision and multiple avenues of possibilities.  Depending how these planets aspect one another determines what we have to work with.  The problem I see in the delineation of a chart is jumping to the conclusions that we might be handicapped by our charts to achieve the goals we have for ourselves.  It has been my experience that negative aspects can be the turn around in a chart to benefit the individual, as well as vice versa, with beneficial aspects bringing harm to the individual.  I have noticed from the many charts I have studied that it is not what we have been given to work with, but how we work with our assets and liabilities that determines the success we will have in life.

The important keyword in looking at one’s chart is to be honest with oneself and to view our chart as if it was someone who was consulting us, and to delineate from an objective point of view.  The problem I have found has been admitting to my self what I lack and what I am really good at.  The moment one takes one’s liabilities as a negative attribute, we have lost the ability to use it in a positive way.  The instant we see it in a positive light, avenues of possibilities of how best to use it comes to mind.  Instead of seeing a black and white picture of what we have, we need to see the picture in colors and to realize that all the hues create the picture and are needed to create the desired effect.  We must realize that each of us is unique and the final results will be achieved differently.  I think the negative thought patterns that gets in the way is to think that the formula to success has only one path for everyone.  The moment we see there are many paths to any one problem is the moment we will approach our goals with new insights.

The only negativity I see in developing our senses for the whole picture is when we begin to take what we observe, personally.  We need to stand back and see the picture in it’s’ totality instead of it’s’ parts.  The moment we begin to confuse our emotions with our thinking, is when we loose sight of the objectives.  We need to step outside of ourselves and see the whole picture, and not to think we always need to be the center of attention.  Our sensitivity is our doorway to our creative imagination and our ability to see new horizons and to develop new ideas and projects.  Remember that our sensitivity can be a liability or an asset depending on how we use it, so one needs to see how vulnerable Neptune and Venus is in our charts to determine our individual situations and how to approach and use these planets to our benefit.
