Pluto Retrograde – Take Time to Think About Change

A couple of people have told me that they feel “low energy” or a bit confused of late. One person said to me that she just can’t “get her gears in the right speed.” OK you can blame it on Pluto. Pluto, the planet of transformative inner power is in retrograde and will be until September 2013. In fact, it will finally move out of retrograde on Sept. 20th – very close to the autumnal equinox. Instead of bemoaning the low energy of a Pluto retrograde use it. Pluto is the planet of death, transformation, money, sex and power –

Eating With and For Alignment With the Body

courtesy arlenew.com My cookbook, “Signs of the Tines: The Ultimate Astrological Cookbook” pairs food with astrological signs. However, Chinese Medicine has been informing people how to eat for health for centuries. I recently met with my friend, Eva DeCourcey, who is not only an acupuncturist but a teacher of medical Qigong. She was “eating for her spleen that night.” That, of course, was a sentence that sparked my imagination. How do you eat for your spleen? She explained to me that the spleen works with the stomach to break down and utilize the foods that we eat.It craves warm foods, comfort

Boston

I have been having so much fun with my book, “Signs of the Tines: The Ultimate Astrological Cookbook”, that I have been doing a lot of food related, fun chart castings. Yesterday brought the fun to a halt and brought us back to reality. If you remember a few weeks ago I made an entry called “Feeling Confused” where I spoke about the wild Stellium – the five planets all in Aries, the sign of raw, male energy. I called it one of the craziest charts ever -and spoke of angry Aries. Well sadly the dreamy Pisces Stellium is now

The King’s Hot Dog

Yeah, you knew I was going to use the title, didn’t you? Last week I spoke about President Roosevelt’s hot dog dinner for the King and Queen of England during World War II. Why did the King enjoy the picnic? The answer lies in his first house. He has four heavenly bodies in this first house, Venus, Saturn, Uranus and the Moon all in secretive Scorpio. Having Saturn, the task master, and Uranus, the rebel, together in a fixed sign in the first house is a prescription of someone who is torn between tradition and change. Basically, he felt like

Why Did FDR Serve the King a Hot Dog?

There has been a lot of discussion lately mostly because of the movie, “Hyde Park on the Hudson,’ regarding a party that President Franklin Roosevelt held in honor of King George of England in which he served hot dogs. The press was aghast and tongues wagged on both sides of the Atlantic. Of course, there were other things on the menu that day but the hot dogs were the talk of Washington. What is it in FDR’s chart that would make him do something so unusual? Well, that is easy to see. He was dominated by the sign of the
