Happy Astrological New Year!
Whether it is the first day of spring or fall in your world, the Sun has just entered Aries and our astrological new year has begun.
We have collectively endured one of the darkest times in modern history and there is still much uncertainty. There may not be a single soul alive who hasn’t lost a loved one during this past year, and many have lost multiple loved ones. With this much suffering, one can easily go numb in an effort to get by.
I know too well what that is like. By this time last year, our world had just come to a screeching halt with COVID-19, and William and I had just buried his father, Jack, who fortunately, at 93 years of age, had died of natural causes after a fruitful and wonderful life. We had no idea that we were soon to lose 7 more dear friends and family members.
Navigating so much loss is nothing short of mind-numbing but navigate we must. Now on this day of the Sun’s ingress into Aries, I am here to say that while we still grieve many losses, there is much to be grateful for as well. If you are reading this, then you have prevailed. You are still here and there is much living yet to do!
Where I am, on the west coast of the US, which is in the northern hemisphere, we are just beginning spring. I have been watching our tall pine tree and the main Great Blue Heron rookery here at Mariners Village in Los Angeles County. Several years ago, back in 2013, we learned that there were renovation plans that would have removed all of the 1,000+ trees here…but not on our watch!
William and I got very busy with a few of our neighbors and organized to halt those plans. There is much more to say on that topic, and we learned more about politics than we ever wanted to, but suffice to say, we still have our trees! Never let anyone tell you that organizing for a good cause is a fruitless endeavor.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it's the only thing that ever has."

So, on this first day of spring, I am grateful that I am alive to hear the clucking sounds of freshly hatched herons and I am enjoying watching their parents fly in with meals for their children and fresh eucalyptus branches to fortify their nests.

In honor of the renewal that spring heralds, William and I would like to share a special offer with you: since spring is the time for planting seeds, I think that it would behoove you to know when the best time for planting is.
Both the 1-year Transit Report and the 1-year Progression Report will help you to choose the best dates to plan your business, relationships, travel, fitness regimen, community organizing, and any other projects you may have for the next 12 months. As our Mother Earth rotates on her axis and revolves around our Father Sun, and the planets move around us, they affect our Natal Charts in various ways: some aspects are great for initiating, some for contemplating or creating, and others for reflecting and redoing.
So... here is our SPECIAL OFFER:
When you order your Natal Chart & Report, we will send you both of these Reports as gifts to you along with an Astrocartography report for a city of your choosing. If you already have your Natal Chart, then you may choose a different Chart & Report from my website.
If you would like a consultation, then I will gift you 2 hours for 1 hour.
Enjoy this Spring Equinox!
